    NOTES - 2 CHRONICLES 14

    2 Chronicles 13 - 2 Chronicles 15 >> - HELP - FACEBOOK - GR FORUMS - GODRULES ON YOUTUBE    




    XIV The piety of Asa, ver. 1-5. His policy, ver. 6-8. His victory over the Ethiopians, ver. 9-15.

    Verse 1. Quiet - There was no open war, but there were private hostilities between his and Baasha's subjects.

    Verse 6. The land had rest - Those have rest indeed, to whom God gives rest; peace indeed, to whom Christ gives peace. We find by experience, it is good to seek the Lord. While we pursue the world, we meet with nothing but vexation.

    Verse 7. Before us - In our power.

    Verse 9. Ethiopian - Or, the Arabian, as the Hebrew word Cush is commonly used: these being much nearer to Asa than the Ethiopians.

    Verse 11. Let not man prevail - If he prevails against us, he prevails, as it were, against thee; because thou art our God. And we rest on thee, and go forth in thy name, which thou hast encouraged us to do.

    Verse 12. Smote - With terror, and an unaccountable consternation.

    Verse 14. Smote the cities - because they had joined, with Zerah in this war.
