Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

2 Chronicles 20:33

_ _ the high places were not taken away — Those on which idolatry was practiced were entirely destroyed (2 Chronicles 17:6); but those where the people, notwithstanding the erection of the temple, continued to worship the true God, prudence required to be slowly and gradually abolished, in deference to popular prejudice.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 2 Chronicles 20:31-37.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

2 Chronicles 20:33

Not taken — Not universally; the fault was not in Jehoshaphat, but in the people, who, though they did worship the true God, yet would not be confined to the temple, but for their own conveniency, or from their affection to their ancient custom chose to worship him in the high — places.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

2 Chronicles 20:33

(t) If the great care and diligence of this good king was not able to utterly abolish all the superstition of this people, but they still retained it, how much less are they able to reform evil, who either have little zeal, or not as he had: though here he was not to be excused?
