2 Chronicles 32:12  (King James Version)
Hath not the same Hezekiah taken away his high places and his altars, and commanded Judah and Jerusalem, saying, Ye shall worship before one altar, and burn incense upon it?

Hath not
31:1 2 Kings 18:4 2 Kings 18:22 ; Isaiah 36:7

taken away
This was artfully malicious: many of the people had sacrificed to Jehovah on high places, (ch. 31:1 ;) and Hezekiah had removed them, as incentives to idolatry. Hence Rabshakeh insinuates that by so doing he had offended Jehovah, deprived the people of their religious rights, and that, consequently, he could neither expect the blessing of God, nor the cooperation of the people.

Ye shall worship
Deuteronomy 12:13 Deuteronomy 12:14 Deuteronomy 12:26 Deuteronomy 12:27

one altar
