    SEV Biblia, Chapter 22:20

    Por tanto, he aquí yo te recogeré con tus padres, y tú serás recogido a tu sepulcro en paz, y no verán tus ojos todo el mal que yo traigo sobre este lugar. Y ellos dieron al rey la respuesta.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 2 Kings 22:20

    Verse 20. Thou shalt be gathered into thy
    grave in peace] During thy life none of these calamities shall fall upon the people, and no adversary shall be permitted to disturb the peace of Judea, and thou shalt die in peace with God. But was Josiah gathered to the grave in peace? Is it not said, chap. xxiii. 29, that Pharaoh-nechoh slew him at Megiddo? On this we may remark, that the Assyrians and the Jews were at peace; that Josiah might feel it his duty to oppose the Egyptian king going against his friend and ally, and endeavour to prevent him from passing through his territories; and that in his endeavours to oppose him he was mortally wounded at Megiddo: but certainly was not killed there; for his servants put him in his second chariot and brought him to Jerusalem, where he died in peace. See 2 Chron. xxxv. 24. So that, however we take the place here, we shall find that the words of Huldah were true: he did die in peace, and was gathered to his fathers in peace.

    FROM the account in the above chapter, where we have this business detailed, we find that Josiah should not have meddled in the quarrel between the Egyptian and the Assyrian kings, for God had given a commission to the former against the latter; but he did it in error, and suffered for it. But this unfortunate end of this pious man does not at all impeach the credit of Huldah; he died in peace in his own kingdom. He died in peace with God, and there was neither war nor desolation in his land: nor did the king of Egypt proceed any farther against the Jews during his life; for he said, "What have I to do with thee, thou king of Judah? I come not against thee, but the house wherewith I have war; for God commanded me to make haste: forbear then from meddling with God, who is with me, that he destroy thee not. Nevertheless, Josiah would not turn his face from him, and hearkened not to the words of Nechoh, from the mouth of God. And the archers shot at King Josiah: and the king said, Bear me away, for I am sore wounded. And his servants took him out of that chariot, and put him in the second chariot, and they brought him to Jerusalem, and he died and was buried in the sepulcher of his fathers;" 2 Chron. xxxv. 21-24.

    It seems as if the Egyptian king had brought his troops by sea to Caesarea, and wished to cross the Jordan about the southern point of the sea of Tiberias, that he might get as speedily as possible into the Assyrian dependencies; and that he took this road, for God, as he said, had commanded him to make haste.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 20. Behold therefore, I will gather thee unto thy fathers , etc.] To his godly ancestors, to share with them in eternal life and happiness; otherwise it could be no peculiar favour to die in common, as his fathers did, and be buried in their sepulchres: and thou shall be gathered into thy grave in peace ; in a time of public peace and tranquillity; for though he was slain in battle with the king of Egypt, yet it was what he was personally concerned in, and it was not a public war between the two kingdoms, and his body was carried off by his servants, and was peaceably interred in the sepulchre of his ancestors, ( 2 Kings 23:29,30), as well as he died in spiritual peace, and entered into eternal peace, which is the end of the perfect and upright man, as he was, ( Psalm 37:37) but this chiefly regards his not living to be distressed with the calamities of his nation and people, as follows: and thine eyes shall not see all the evil which I will bring upon this place : he being removed first, though it came upon it in the days of his sons: and they brought the king word again ; of what Huldah the prophetess had said unto them.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 11-20 - The book of the
    law is read before the king. Those best honour their Bibles, who study them; daily feed on that bread, and walk by tha light. Convictions of sin and wrath should put us upon this inquiry What shall we do to be saved? Also, what we may expect, and mus provide for. Those who are truly apprehensive of the weight of God' wrath, cannot but be very anxious how they may be saved. Huldah le Josiah know what judgments God had in store for Judah and Jerusalem The generality of the people were hardened, and their hearts unhumbled but Josiah's heart was tender. This is tenderness of heart, and thus he humbled himself before the Lord. Those who most fear God's wrath, ar least likely to feel it. Though Josiah was mortally wounded in battle yet he died in peace with God, and went to glory. Whatever such person suffer or witness, they are gathered to the grave in peace, and shal enter into the rest which remaineth for the people of God __________________________________________________________________
