Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

2 Chronicles 25:7-8

_ _ there came a man of God — sent to dissuade Amaziah from the course he was following, on the ground that “the Lord is not with Israel.” This statement was perfectly intelligible to the king. But the historian, writing long after, thought it might require explanation, and therefore added the comment, “with all the children of Ephraim.” Idolatry had long been the prevailing religion in that kingdom, and Ephraim its headquarters. As to the other part of the prophet’s advice (2 Chronicles 25:8), considerable obscurity hangs over it, as the text stands; and hence some able critics have suggested the insertion of “not” in the middle clause, so that the verse will be thus: “But if thou wilt go [alone], do, be strong for the battle; God shall not make thee fall before the enemy.”

Matthew Henry's Commentary

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

2 Chronicles 25:7

Let not, &c. — It is comfortable to employ those, who we have reason to hope, have an interest in heaven, but dangerous associating with those from whom the Lord is departed.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

2 Chronicles 25:7

But there came a man of God to him, saying, O king, let not the army of Israel go with thee; for the LORD [is] not (e) with Israel, [to wit, with] all the children of Ephraim.

(e) Therefore to think to have help from them, whom the Lord does not favour, is to cast off the help of the Lord.
