Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

See commentary on 2 Chronicles 24:17-22.


2 Chronicles 24:22

_ _ when he died, he said, The Lord look upon it and require it — These dying words, if they implied a vindictive imprecation, exhibit a striking contrast to the spirit of the first Christian martyr (Acts 7:60). But, instead of being the expression of a personal wish, they might be the utterance of a prophetic doom.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 2 Chronicles 24:15-27.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

2 Chronicles 24:22

Require it — Make inquisition for innocent blood. But the words may be rendered, The Lord will look upon it, and require it, will require satisfaction from you for it.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

2 Chronicles 24:22

Thus Joash the king remembered not the kindness which Jehoiada his father had done to him, but slew his son. And when he died, he said, The LORD (n) look upon [it], and require [it].

(n) Avenge my death and require my blood at your hands: or he speaks this by prophecy because he knew that God would do it. This Zachariah is also called the son of Barachias, (Matthew 23:35) because his progenitors were Iddo, Berachiah, Jehoiada.

The LORD[YHWH]:
These words were prophetic, and not imprecatory; and should be rendered as Houbigant proposes, in the future tense: "The Lord will look upon it, and avenge it." The event soon verified this prediction; for, before the year was expired, the Syrians came up against Jerusalem, and destroyed all the princes of the people, and Joash himself was slain in his bed by his own servants. Many circumstances served to aggravate this barbarous act. Zechariah was a high-priest and a prophet, upright and unblameable in the discharge of his high offices; this murder was perpetrated within the very precincts of the courts of the Lord; and this truly good man was by blood the nearest relative of Joash, and the son of the man who had save him from being murdered, and raised him to the throne!

Revelation 6:9-11 And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held: ...
