Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

See commentary on 2 Chronicles 24:17-22.


2 Chronicles 24:18

_ _ wrath came upon Judah and Jerusalem — The particular mention of Jerusalem as involved in the sin implies that the neglect of the temple and the consequent idolatry received not only the king’s toleration, but his sanction; and it naturally occurs to ask how, at his mature age, such a total abandonment of a place with which all his early recollections were associated can be accounted for. It has been suggested that what he had witnessed of the conduct of many of the priests in the careless performance of the worship, and especially their unwillingness to collect the money, as well as apply a portion of their revenues for the repairs of the temple, had alienated and disgusted him [Le Clerc].

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 2 Chronicles 24:15-27.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

2 Chronicles 24:18

Left, &c. — The king and princes that awhile ago so zealously repaired the temple, now forsook the temple! So inconstant a thing is man! So little confidence is to be put in him!
