Geneva Bible Translation Notes

2 Chronicles 26:5

And he sought God in the days of (c) Zechariah, who had understanding in the visions of God: and as long as (d) he sought the LORD, God made him to prosper.

(c) This was not the Zechariah that was the son of Jehoiada, but some other prophet of that name.

(d) For God never forsakes any who seek him, and therefore man is the cause of his own destruction.
