John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

2 Chronicles 19:11

Over you — Shall be your president. Matters of the Lord — In Spiritual, or ecclesiastical matters. Ruler — The prince, or chief ruler, under the king, of the tribe of Judah. The king's matters — For civil causes, or controversies either between the king and his people; or between subject and subject, which may be called the king's matters, because it was a principal part of his office to see them justly decided. The Levites — Shall be at your command to see your just sentences executed; which work was fitly committed to the Levites, as persons who might add their instructions to the corrections, and might work the guilty to an acknowledgement of their fault and a submission to their punishment. The Lord — Shall protect and bless good judges.
