Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

See commentary on 2 Chronicles 25:14-16.


2 Chronicles 25:16

_ _ as he talked with him, etc. — Those who were invested with the prophetic character were entitled to counsel kings. Amaziah, had he not been offended by unwelcome truths, would have admitted the claim of this prophet, who was probably the same that had given him counsel previous to the war with Edom. But victory had elated and blinded him.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 2 Chronicles 25:14-16.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

2 Chronicles 25:16

Art thou, &c. — Who art thou that presumest to direct my affairs, without my commission? The secure sinner perhaps values himself on having silenced his reprovers and monitors. But what comes of it? It is a plain indication he is marked out for ruin. They that are deaf to reproof, are ripening apace for destruction.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

2 Chronicles 25:16

And it came to pass, as he talked with him, that (n) [the king] said unto him, Art thou made of the king's counsel? forbear; why shouldest thou be (o) smitten? Then the prophet forbare, and said, I know that God hath determined to destroy thee, because thou hast done this, and hast not hearkened unto my counsel.

(n) Meaning the king.

(o) So hard it is, for the carnal man to be admonished for his fault, that he condemns, mocks and threatens him who warns him: yea, imprisons him and puts him to death, (2 Chronicles 16:10, 2 Chronicles 18:26, 2 Chronicles 24:21).
