2 Chronicles 24:27

2 Chronicles 24:27

Now concerning his sons
The sons of Joash; how many they were, and what their names:

and the greatness of the burdens laid upon him;
which some understand of the hard and heavy prophecies of the Lord against him; and others of the heavy taxes and tribute imposed on him by the king of Syria; and others of the collection for the repairs of the temple, ( 2 Chronicles 24:6 ) , where the word used signifies a burden; and it follows,

and the repairing of the house of the Lord;
the whole history of that:

behold, they are written in the story of the book of the kings;
not in the canonical book so called, but in the history, commentaries, or annals of the kings of Judah now lost:

and Amaziah his son reigned in his stead;
see ( 2 Kings 12:21 ) .
