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. \\See Gill on "2Ki 16:2"\\ \\See Gill on "2Ki 16:3"\\ \\See Gill on "2Ki 16:4"\\ 19724-950128-0841-2Ch28.2
