SEV Biblia, Chapter 36:23 Así dice Ciro rey de los persas: El SEÑOR Dios de los cielos, me ha dado todos los reinos de la tierra; y él me ha encargado que le edifique Casa en Jerusalén, que es en Judá. Â¿Quién de vosotros hay de todo su pueblo? El SEÑOR su Dios sea con él, y suba.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - 2 Chronicles 36:23 Verse 23. The Lord his God be with him] "Let the WORD of the Lord be his helper, and let him go up." - Targum. See the notes on the beginning of Ezra. THUS ends the history of a people the most fickle, the most ungrateful, and perhaps on the whole the most sinful, that ever existed on the face of the earth. But what a display does all this give of the power, justice, mercy, and long-suffering of the Lord! There was no people like this people, and no God like their God.
The sum of the verses in both books of Chron. is 1656. Middle verse, 1 Chron. xxvii. 25. Its Masoretic sections, twenty- five.
Having made particular remarks on every thing which I judged of importance in these and the preceding historical books, and in the course of this work having often found the want of a chronological list of the kings of Israel and Judah, in the consecutive order of their reigns; for the reader's information I have brought all the facts into a synopsis or general view, so that he may see at once the contemporary reigns in those two kingdoms, as well as the leading facts by which their reigns were distinguished. In this table will be seen, at one view, the year of the world; the year before Christ; the year before and after the First Olympiad; the year before and from the building of Rome; and under them the Jewish history, from its first kings till the time in which its regal state was entirely abolished, and both kingdoms led into captivity, never more to arise to any political consequence till they acknowledge the Lion of the tribe of Judah, and take Jesus the Christ, the son and only legitimate heir of David, for their saviour and their Lord. I hope that the table which is here subjoined will be found, in every point of view, both interesting and instructive. A. CLARKE.

Finished correcting the two books of Chronicles, March 28th, 1828. - A. CLARKE.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 22, 23 - God had promised the restoring of the captives, and the rebuilding of Jerusalem, at the end of seventy years; and that time to favour Zion that set time, came at last. Though God's church be cast down, it is not cast off; though his people be corrected, they are not abandoned though thrown into the furnace, they are not lost there, nor left ther any longer than till the dross be separated. Though God contend long he will not contend always. Before we close the books of the Chronicles, which contain a faithful register of events, think what desolation sin introduced into the world, nay, even into the church of God. Let us tremble at what is here recorded, while in the character of some few gracious souls, we discover that the Lord left not himsel without witness. And when we have looked at this faithful portrait of man by nature, let us contrast with it that same nature, when recovere by Almighty grace, through the justifying and soul-adornin righteousness of Christ our Saviour __________________________________________________________________
