Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

2 Chronicles 29:6-7

_ _ our fathers have trespassed — Ahaz and the generation contemporary with him were specially meant, for they “turned away their faces from the habitation of the Lord,” and whether or not they turned east to the rising sun, they abandoned the worship of God. They “shut up the doors of the porch,” so that the sacred ritual was entirely discontinued.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 2 Chronicles 29:1-11.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

2 Chronicles 29:6

Turned, &c. — They have wilfully and obstinately forsaken God and his worship; that posture being a signification of contempt.
