SEV Biblia, Chapter 10:9 Venida la mañana, salió él, y estando en pie dijo a todo el pueblo: Vosotros sois justos; he aquí yo he conspirado contra mi señor, y lo he muerto; Â¿mas quién ha muerto a todos estos?
Clarke's Bible Commentary - 2 Kings 10:9 Verse 9. Ye be righteous] Another irony, intended partly to excuse himself, and to involve them in the odium of this massacre, and at the same time to justify the conduct of both, by showing that all was done according to the commandment of the Lord.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 9. And it came to pass in the morning, that he went out, and stood, and said to all the people , etc.] Who were gathered together to this shocking sight, or on the above accounts: ye be righteous ; having had no concern in taking off the heads of those men: behold, I conspired against my master, and slew him ; I own it, and some may blame me for it, and charge me with treason and murder: but who slew all these ? not he, but the chief men of Samaria, and therefore must be more guilty than he, having shed the blood of so many persons, who had not offended against God and man to so great a degree as Joram; this he said to lessen his own sin, and wipe off the reproach of it, that his character might appear fairer in the eyes of the people, concealing, at the same time, his orders for the slaying of them.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 1-14 - In the most awful events, though attended by the basest crimes of man the truth and justice of God are to be noticed; and he never did no can command any thing unjust or unreasonable. Jehu destroyed all tha remained of the house of Ahab; all who had been partners in his wickedness. When we think upon the sufferings and miseries of mankind when we look forward to the resurrection and last judgment, and thin upon the vast number of the wicked waiting their awful sentence of everlasting fire; when the whole sum of death and misery has bee considered, the solemn question occurs, Who slew all these? The answe is, SIN. Shall we then harbour sin in our bosoms, and seek for happiness from that which is the cause of all misery?
