Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

2 Chronicles 34:8

_ _ 2 Chronicles 34:8-18. He repairs the temple.

_ _ in the eighteenth year of his reign ... he sent Shaphan — (See on 2 Kings 22:3-9).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

2 Chronicles 34:8-13

_ _ Here, 1. Orders are given by the king for the repair of the temple, 2 Chronicles 34:8. When he had purged the house of the corruptions of it he began to fit it up for the services that were to be performed in it. Thus we must do by the spiritual temple of the heart, get it cleansed from the pollutions of sin, and then renewed, so as to be transformed into the image of God. Josiah, in this order, calls God the Lord his God. Those that truly love God will love the habitation of his house. 2. Care is taken about it, effectual care. The Levites went about the country and gathered money towards it, which was returned to the three trustees mentioned, 2 Chronicles 34:8. They brought it to Hilkiah the high priest (2 Chronicles 34:9), and he and they put it into the hands of workmen, both overseers and labourers, who undertook to do it by the great, as we say, or in the gross, 2 Chronicles 34:10, 2 Chronicles 34:11. It is observed that the workmen were industrious and honest: They did the work faithfully (2 Chronicles 34:12); and workmen are not completely faithful if they are not both careful and diligent, for a confidence is reposed in them that they will be so. It is also intimated that the overseers were ingenious; for it is said that all those were employed to inspect this work who were skilful in instruments of music; not that their skill in music could be of any use in architecture, but it was an evidence that they were men of sense and ingenuity, and particularly that their genius lay towards the mathematics, which qualified them very much for this trust. Witty men are then wise men when they employ their wit in doing good, in helping their friends, and, as they have opportunity, in serving the public. Observe, in this work, how God dispenses his gifts variously; here were some that were bearers of burdens, cut out for bodily labour and fit to work. Here were others (made meliori lutoof finer materials) that had skill in music, and they were overseers of those that laboured, and scribes and officers. The former were the hands: these were the heads. They had need of one another, and the work needed both. Let not the overseers of the work despise the bearers of burdens, nor let those that work in the service grudge at those whose office it is to direct; but let each esteem and serve the other in love, and let God have the glory and the church the benefit of the different gifts and dispositions of both.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

2 Chronicles 34:8

The house — The house of God, called the house by way of eminency.
