Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

See commentary on 2 Chronicles 15:9-15.


2 Chronicles 15:10-14

_ _ the third month — when was held the Feast of Pentecost. On this occasion, it was celebrated at Jerusalem by an extraordinary sacrifice of seven hundred oxen and seven thousand sheep, the spoil of the Ethiopians being offered. The assembled worshippers entered with great and holy enthusiasm into a national covenant “to seek the Lord their God ... with all their heart and with all their soul;” and, at the same time, to execute with rigor the laws which made idolatry punishable with death (2 Chronicles 15:13; Deuteronomy 17:2-5; Hebrews 10:28). The people testified unbounded satisfaction with this important religious movement, and its moral influence was seen in the promotion of piety, order, and tranquillity throughout the land.
