Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

See commentary on 2 Chronicles 20:5-13.


2 Chronicles 20:6-12

_ _ And said, O Lord God of our fathers — This earnest and impressive prayer embraces every topic and argument which, as king and representative of the chosen people, he could urge. Then it concludes with an earnest appeal to the justice of God to protect those who, without provocation, were attacked and who were unable to defend themselves against overwhelming numbers.
