Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

See commentary on 2 Chronicles 24:17-22.


2 Chronicles 24:20-21

_ _ the Spirit of God came upon Zechariah the son of Jehoiada — probably a younger son, for his name does not occur in the list of Aaron’s successors (1 Chronicles 6:4-47).

_ _ stood above the people — Being of the priestly order, he spoke from the inner court, which was considerably higher than that of the people.

_ _ and said unto them, Thus saith God, Why transgress ye the commandments of the Lord, that ye cannot prosper, etc. — His near relationship to the king might have created a feeling of delicacy and reluctance to interfere; but at length he, too, was prompted by an irresistible impulse to protest against the prevailing impiety. The bold freedom and energy of [Zechariah’s] remonstrance, as well as his denunciation of the national calamities that would certainly follow, were most unpalatable to the king; while they so roused the fierce passions of the multitude that a band of miscreants, at the secret instigation of Joash, stoned him to death. This deed of violence involved complicated criminality on the part of the king. It was a horrid outrage on a prophet of the Lord — base ingratitude to a family who had preserved his life — atrocious treatment of a true Hebrew patriot — an illegal and unrighteous exercise of his power and authority as a king.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 2 Chronicles 24:15-27.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

2 Chronicles 24:21

Stoned him — They stoned him immediately, without even colour of law; as horrid a piece of wickedness, as any we read of in all the history of the kings. That ever such a villainy should be committed, by men, by Israelites, in contempt and violation of everything that is just, honourable, and sacred! The Jews say, there were seven transgressions in one: They killed a priest, a prophet, a judge; they shed innocent blood; polluted the court of the temple, the Sabbath, and the day of expiation: for on that day, their tradition says, this happened.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

2 Chronicles 24:21

And they conspired against him, and stoned him with stones at the (m) commandment of the king in the court of the house of the LORD.

(m) There is no rage so cruel and beastly as of them whose hearts God has hardened, and who delight more in superstition and idolatry than in the true service of God and pure simplicity of his word.

Jeremiah 18:18 Then said they, Come, and let us devise devices against Jeremiah; for the law shall not perish from the priest, nor counsel from the wise, nor the word from the prophet. Come, and let us smite him with the tongue, and let us not give heed to any of his words.

Then took they Jeremiah, and cast him into the dungeon of Malchiah the son of Hammelech, that [was] in the court of the prison: and they let down Jeremiah with cords.
