SEV Biblia, Chapter 11:18 Y todo el pueblo de la tierra entró en el templo de Baal, y lo derribaron; y quebraron en menudas piezas sus altares y sus imágenes, y asimismo mataron a Matán sacerdote de Baal delante de los altares. Y el sacerdote puso guarnición sobre la Casa del SEÑOR.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - 2 Kings 11:18 Verse 18. His altars and images brake they in pieces] It is probable that Athaliah had set up the worship of Baal in Judah, as Jezebel had done in Israel; or probably it had never been removed since the days of Solomon. It was no wonder that Jehoiada began his reform with this act, when we learn from 2 Chron. xxiv. 7, that the sons of Athaliah, that wicked woman, had broken up the house of God; and also all the dedicated things of the house of the Lord did they bestow upon Baalim.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 18. And all the people of the land , etc.] That were at Jerusalem, and the parts adjacent, that came from the country, hearing what was done: went into the house of Baal; a temple of his Athaliah had built, either in Jerusalem, or near it; perhaps on the mount of Olives, called the mount of corruption, ( 2 Kings 23:13) from the idolatry there committed: and brake it down, his altars and his images brake they in pieces thoroughly ; made an entire destruction of them all, temple, altars, the images of Baal and other deities: and slew Mattan the priest of Baal before the altar ; either as he was sacrificing, or that he might be a sacrifice, or where he had fled for refuge: and the priest appointed officers over the house of the Lord ; priests to offer sacrifices, Levites to sing the praises of God, porters at the door of the temple, and watches in it, and restored the courses of the priests, and everything to its proper order, which had been neglected, or had ceased, during the usurpation of Athaliah; (see 2 Chronicles 23:18,19).
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 17-21 - King and people would cleave most firmly to each other, when both ha joined themselves to the Lord. It is well with a people, when all the changes that pass over them help to revive, strengthen, and advance the interests of religion among them. Covenants are of use, both to remin us of, and bind us to, the duties already binding on us. The immediately abolished idolatry; and, pursuant to the covenant with on another, they expressed mutual readiness to help each other. The people rejoiced, and Jerusalem was quiet. The way for people to be joyful an at peace, is to engage fully in the service of God; for the voice of joy and thanksgiving is in the dwellings of the righteous, but there is no peace for the wicked __________________________________________________________________
