Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

See commentary on 2 Chronicles 19:1-4.


2 Chronicles 19:4

_ _ he went out again through the people — This means his reappointing the commissioners of public instruction (2 Chronicles 17:7-9), perhaps with new powers and a larger staff of assistants to overtake every part of the land. The complement of teachers required for that purpose would be easily obtained because the whole tribe of Levites was now concentrated within the kingdom of Judah.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 2 Chronicles 19:1-4.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

2 Chronicles 19:4

Through — Through the whole kingdom, whereof these were the two bounds. And brought — Such of them as had revolted from God to idols, he reclaimed by his counsel and example, and by the instructions of the Levites and priests, whom he carried with him. Many, probably, had revolted to idolatry, when they saw their king so intimate with idolaters. Therefore he thought himself doubly obliged to do all he could to reduce them. If we truly repent of sin, we shall do our utmost to repair the damage we have done to religion, or the souls of others.
