VERSE 1 - A.M. 3194. B.C. 810. In the. * :8; 14:16,17 - twenty and seventy. "This is the twenty-seventh year of Jeroboam's partnership in the kingdom with his father, who made him consort at his going to the Syrian wars. It is the sixteenth year of Jeroboam's monarchy." - Azariah. * :13,30-38; 14:21 2Ch 26:1,3,4 - Uzziah.

Dr. Kennicott complains loudly here of "the corruption in the name of this king of Judah, who is expressed by four different names in this chapter: Ozriah, Oziah, Ozrihu, and Ozihu. Our oldest Hebrew MS. relieves us here, by reading truly, in verses 1, 6, 7, Uzziah, where the printed text is differently corrupted. This reading is called true, 1. Because it is supported by the Syriac and Arabic versions in these three verses. 2. Because the printed text itself has it so in ver. 32 and 34 of this very chapter. 3. Because it is so expressed in the parallel place in Chronicles: and 4. Because it is not [ ,] Azarias, but [ ,] Ozias, (Uzziah) in St. Matthew's genealogy - they not written. * 2Ki 14:18 2Ch 26:5-15 VERSE 7 - A.M. 3246. B.C. 758. * 2Ch 26:23 Isa 6:1 - Uzziah.

B.C. 772-761. nine. * :13 VERSE 18 - See on ver. * :9 VERSE 19 - A.M. 3233. B.C. 771. Pul. Prideaux supposes that this Pul was the father of the famous Sardanapalus, who was called Sardan with his father's name Pul annexed, as was frequent in those times, making Sardanpul: thus Merodach, king of Babylon, was Merodach-Baladan, because he was the son Baladan. This Pul began to reign according to Usher, A.M. 3237, the fifth year of Menahem; and he is supposed to be the same that reigned in Nineveh, when Jonah preached in that city. * 1Ch 5:25,26 Isa 9:1 - Menahem. * 2Ki 12:18; 16:8; 17:3,4; 18:16 Ho 5:13; 8:9,10; 10:6 - to confirm. * 2Ki 14:5 Jer 17:5 VERSE 20 - Menahem. * 2Ki 23:35 - exacted. Heb. caused to come forth. the mighty. * Ru 2:1 2Sa 19:32 Job 1:3 - of each man, etc. Or, rather, as Bishop Patrick renders, "to give to the king of Assyria fifty shekels of silver for each man," i.e., in his army. It may be supposed, that Menahem compelled "the mighty men of wealth" to give much more a-piece than this sum, (somewhat about 5. sterling each) and each of them in some proportion to his affluence. - stayed not. * :29; 17:3,4; 18:14-17 VERSE 21 - A.M. 3232-3243. B.C. 772-761. See on ver. * :15 VERSE 22 VERSE 23 - A.M. 3243. B.C. 761. and reigned two years. * 2Ki 21:19 1Ki 15:25; 16:8; 22:51 Job 20:5 VERSE 24 - A.M. 3243-3245. B.C. 761-759. See on ver. * :9,18 VERSE 25 - A.M. 3245. B.C. 759. Pekah. * :27 2Ch 28:6 - a captain. * 2Ki 9:5 1Ki 16:9 - conspired. * :10; 9:14 - with Argob. From the construction of the Hebrew text, it would appear that Argob and Arieh were slain with the king, and that the fifty Gileadites were conspirators with Pekah. VERSE 26 - See on ver. * :15 VERSE 27 - A.M. 3245-3265. B.C. 759-739. the two. * :2,8,13,23 - Pekah. * :25,37 Isa 7:1,4,9 VERSE 28 - evil. See on ver. * :9,18; 13:2,6; 21:2 VERSE 29 - Tiglath-pileser. Some suppose Tiglath-pileser to be the son of Sardanapalus: but the learned Prideaux makes him the same as Arbaces the Mede, called by 'lian, Thelgamus, and by Castor, Ninus Junior, who, with Belesis, headed the conspiracy against Sardanapalus, and fixed his royal seat at Nineveh, as Belesis, called in Scripture Baladan (Is 1 39:1), did his at Babylon. He reigned nineteen years, from A.M. 3257 to A.M. 3276. * 2Ki 16:7 1Ch 5:6,26 2Ch 28:20,21 - Tiglath-pilneser. * Isa 9:1 - Ijon. * 1Ki 15:20 2Ch 16:4 - Abel-beth-maachah. * 2Sa 20:14,15 - Janoah. * Jos 16:6 - Janohah.

B.C. 739. made. See on ver. * :10,25 - and smote. * Ho 10:3,7,15 - reigned. "After an anarchy for some years." - in the twentieth. "In the fourth year of Ahaz, in the twentieth year after Jotham had begun to reign."--Usher. * :32,33; 16:1; 17:1 2Ch 28:4-6,16 Isa 7:1-9; 8:6 VERSE 31 VERSE 32 - A.M. 3246. B.C. 758. Jotham. * :7 1Ch 3:12 2Ch 27:1-9 Mt 1:9 - Jotham. Uzziah. See on ver. * :1,7,13,17,23,27; 14:21 1Ch 3:12 - Azariah. VERSE 33 - A.M. 3246-3262. B.C. 758-742. Jerusha. * 2Ch 27:1 - Jerushah. VERSE 34 - according. * :3,4 2Ch 26:4,5; 27:2 VERSE 35 - However. See on ver. * :4; 18:4 2Ch 32:12 - the higher gate. * 2Ch 27:3-9 VERSE 36 - the rest. See on ver. * :6,7 2Ch 27:4-9 VERSE 37 - A.M. 3262. B.C. 742. In those days. "At the end of Jotham's reign." This Jotham died at forty-one. He was too great a blessing to be continued long to such an unworthy people. His death was a judgment, especially considering the character of Ahaz, his son and successor: for we read, (3 16:3) Ahaz made his son pass through the fire. This son may have been Hezekiah, who served the Lord, and whose prayer in sickness was most graciously herd and answered. * Isa 38:1-22 - began. * 2Ki 10:32 1Sa 3:12 Jer 25:29 Lu 21:28 - to send. * De 28:48 Ps 78:49 Isa 10:5-7 Jer 16:16; 43:10 - Rezin. * 2Ki 16:5 2Ch 28:6 Isa 7:1,8 Ho 5:12,13 - Pekah. See on ver. * :27 VERSE 38 - Jotham. See on * 2Sa 7:12 1Ki 1:2; 14:20,31 - Ahaz. * 2Ki 16:1 1Ch 3:13 2Ch 28:1 Mt 1:9 - Achaz. GOTO NEXT CHAPTER - TREASURY OF SCRIPTURE KNOWLEDGE INDEX
