2 Chronicles 10 Commentary - Matthew Henry Commentary on the Whole Bible (Concise)

Chapter 10

The ten tribes revolt from Rehoboam.

- Moderate counsels are wisest and best. Gentleness will do what violence will not do. Most people like to be accosted mildly. Good words cost only a little self-denial, yet they purchase great things. No more needs to be done to ruin men, than to leave them to their own pride and passion. Thus, whatever are the devices of men, God is doing his own work by all, and fulfilling the word which he has spoken. No man can bequeath his prosperity to his heirs any more than his wisdom; though our children will generally be affected by our conduct, whether good or bad. Let us then seek those good things which will be our own for ever; and crave the blessing of God upon our posterity, in preference to wealth or worldly exaltation.

2 Chronicles 10 Commentary - Commentary Critical and Explanatory on the Whole Bible

CHAPTER 10

2 Chronicles 10:1-15 . REHOBOAM REFUSING THE OLD MEN'S GOOD COUNSEL.

1. Rehoboam went to is, with a few verbal alterations, the same as in 1 Kings 12:1-19 .

7. If thou be kind to this people, and please them, and speak good words to them--In the Book of Kings [ 1 Kings 12:7 ], the words are, "If thou wilt be a servant unto this--people, and wilt serve them." The meaning in both is the same, namely, If thou wilt make some reasonable concessions, redress their grievances, and restore their abridged liberties, thou wilt secure their strong and lasting attachment to thy person and government.

15-17. the king hearkened not unto the people, for the cause was of God--Rehoboam, in following an evil counsel, and the Hebrew people, in making a revolutionary movement, each acted as free agents, obeying their own will and passions. But God, who permitted the revolt of the northern tribes, intended it as a punishment of the house of David for Solomon's apostasy. That event demonstrates the immediate superintendence of His providence over the revolutions of kingdoms; and thus it affords an instance, similar to many other striking instances that are found in Scripture, of divine predictions, uttered long before, being accomplished by the operation of human passions, and in the natural course of events.
