Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Isaiah 36:2

_ _ Rab-shakeh — In 2 Kings 18:17, Tartan and Rab-saris are joined with him. Rab-shakeh was probably the chief leader; Rab is a title of authority, “chief-cup-bearer.”

_ _ Lachish — a frontier town southwest of Jerusalem, in Judah; represented as a great fortified city in a hilly and fruitful country in the Koyunjik bas-reliefs, now in the British Museum; also, its name is found on a slab over a figure of Sennacherib on his throne.

_ _ upper pool — the side on which the Assyrians would approach Jerusalem coming from the southwest (see on Isaiah 7:3).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Isaiah 36:1-10.

And many brought gifts unto the LORD to Jerusalem, and presents to Hezekiah king of Judah: so that he was magnified in the sight of all nations from thenceforth.

Ye made also a ditch between the two walls for the water of the old pool: but ye have not looked unto the maker thereof, neither had respect unto him that fashioned it long ago.
