Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

2 Chronicles 30:6

_ _ the posts — that is, runners, or royal messengers, who were taken from the king’s bodyguard (2 Chronicles 23:1, 2 Chronicles 23:2). Each, well mounted, had a certain number of miles to traverse. Having performed his course, he was relieved by another, who had to scour an equal extent of ground; so that, as the government messengers were dispatched in all directions, public edicts were speedily diffused throughout the country. The proclamation of Hezekiah was followed by a verbal address from himself, piously urging the duty, and setting forth the advantages, of a return to the pure faith and institutions which God had delivered to their ancestors through Moses.

_ _ the remnant of you, that are escaped out of the hand of the kings of Assyria — This implies that several expeditions against Israel had already been made by Assyrian invaders — by Pul (2 Kings 15:19), but none of the people were then removed; at a later period by Tiglath-pileser, when it appears that numbers among the tribes east of Jordan (1 Chronicles 5:26), and afterwards in the northern parts of Israel (2 Kings 15:20), were carried into foreign exile. The invasion of Shalmaneser cannot be alluded to, as it did not take place till the sixth year of Hezekiah’s reign (2 Kings 17:6; 2 Kings 18:9-12).
