Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

2 Chronicles 28:20

_ _ Tilgath-pilneser ... distressed him, but strengthened him not — that is, notwithstanding the temporary relief which Tilgath-pilneser afforded him by the conquest of Damascus and the slaughter of Rezin (2 Kings 16:9), little advantage resulted from it, for Tilgath-pilneser spent the winter in voluptuous revelry at Damascus; and the connection formed with the Assyrian king was eventually a source of new and greater calamities and humiliation to the kingdom of Judah (2 Chronicles 28:2, 2 Chronicles 28:3).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

2 Chronicles 28:20

Distressed — Or, straitened him, by robbing him of his treasures. Strengthened not — A most emphatical expression: for tho' he weakened his present enemy the Syrian, yet all things considered, he did not strengthen Ahaz and his kingdom, but weaken them; for by removing the Syrian, who, tho' a troublesome neighbour, was a kind of bulwark to him, he smoothed the way for himself, a far more dangerous enemy, as appears in the very next king's reign.
