Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

2 Chronicles 12:9

_ _ So Shishak ... came up against Jerusalem — After the parenthetical clause (2 Chronicles 12:5-8) describing the feelings and state of the beleaguered court, the historian resumes his narrative of the attack upon Jerusalem, and the consequent pillage both of the temple and the palace.

_ _ he took all — that is, everything valuable he found. The cost of the targets and shields has been estimated at about $1,200,000 [Napier, Ancient Workers in Metal].

_ _ the shields of gold — made by Solomon, were kept in the house of the forest of Lebanon (2 Chronicles 9:16). They seem to have been borne, like maces, by the guards of the palace, when they attended the king to the temple or on other public processions. Those splendid insignia having been plundered by the Egyptian conqueror, others were made of inferior metal and kept in the guard room of the palace, to be ready for use; as, notwithstanding the tarnished glory of the court, the old state etiquette was kept up on public and solemn occasions. An account of this conquest of Judah, with the name of “king of Judah” in the cartouche of the principal captive, according to the interpreters, is carved and written in hieroglyphics on the walls of the great palace of Karnak, where it may be seen at the present day. This sculpture is about twenty-seven hundred years old, and is of peculiar interest as a striking testimony from Egypt to the truth of Scripture history.
