Introduction

\\INTRODUCTION TO 2 CHRONICLES 28\\

This chapter contains the reign of Ahaz, and gives an account of the
idolatry he was guilty of, \\#2Ch 28:1-4\\, what calamities came upon
him and his people, being delivered up into the hands of the kings of
Syria and Israel, who slew many, and carried others captives,
\\#2Ch 28:5-8\\, though they that were taken captive by Israel, at the
admonition of a prophet, were sent back again, \\#2Ch 28:9-15\\, how
also he was distressed by the Edomites and Philistines, and not
helped by the king of Assyria, he sent for and made presents to,
\\#2Ch 28:16-21\\ and yet went into more and greater idolatries,
\\#2Ch 28:22-25\\, and the chapter is concluded with his death and
burial, \\#2Ch 28:26,27\\.

These verses are much the same with \\#2Ki 16:2-4\\, only in \\#2Ch 28:2\\
it is said,

\\he made also molten images for Baalim\\; the several Baals or idols of
the nations round about, as well as served Jeroboam's calves; see
\\#Jud 2:11\\, and he is said in \\#2Ch 28:3\\,

\\to burn incense in the valley of the son of Hinnom\\; to Molech, the god
of the Ammonites, who was worshipped there.
