Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

2 Chronicles 27:2

_ _ he did that which was right — The general rectitude of his government is described by representing it as conducted on the excellent principles which had guided the early part of his father’s reign.

_ _ the people did yet corruptly — (See 2 Kings 15:35); but the description here is more emphatic, that though Jotham did much to promote the good of his kingdom and aimed at a thorough reformation in religion, the widespread and inveterate wickedness of the people frustrated all his laudable efforts.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 2 Chronicles 27:1-9.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

2 Chronicles 27:2

He did — He did according to all that his father Uzziah did; except in his miscarriages. We must not imitate those we have the greatest esteem for, any farther than we do well; but their failings must be warnings to us, to walk more circumspectly.
