Arthur Peake's Commentary on the Bible

2 Chronicles 12



Verses 1-16

2 Chronicles 12:1-16. Shishak invades Judah; Summary of Rehoboam's Reign; his Death (see notes on 1 Kings 14:21 f., 1 Kings 14:25-28, 1 Kings 14:29-31).—The words in 2 Chronicles 12:2 b ("because they had trespassed . . .") to the end of 2 Chronicles 12:8, which do not figure in 1 K., are regarded by many commentators as a midrash (see note on 2 Chronicles 13:22) which the Chronicler either wrote himself or incorporated from some source to which he had access.

2 Chronicles 12:3. Sukkilm: not mentioned elsewhere; the LXX renders "troglodytes" (cave-dwellers), but the Hebrew word rather suggests "dwellers in booths."

2 Chronicles 12:15. the histories . . . the seer: see note on 1 Chronicles 29:29.
