Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

2 Kings 18:14-16

_ _ Hezekiah ... sent to Lachish, saying, ... that which thou puttest on me will I bear — Disappointed in his expectations of aid from Egypt, and feeling himself unable to resist so mighty a conqueror who was menacing Jerusalem itself, Hezekiah made his submission. The payment of 300 talents of silver, and 30 talents of gold — about $1,500,00 — brought a temporary respite; but, in raising the imposed tribute, he was obliged not only to drain all the treasures of the palace and the temple, but even to strip the doors and pillars of the sacred edifice of the gold that adorned them.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 2 Kings 18:9-16.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

2 Kings 18:14

Three hundred talents, &c. — Above two hundred thousand pounds.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

2 Kings 18:14

And Hezekiah king of Judah sent to the king of Assyria to Lachish, saying, (d) I have offended; return from me: that which thou puttest on me will I bear. And the king of Assyria appointed unto Hezekiah king of Judah three hundred talents of silver and thirty talents of gold.

(d) As his zeal was before praised, so his weakness is here set forth, that no one should glory in himself.
