This chapter is the history of the reign of Ahaz
the son of Jotham; a bad reign it was, and which helped to augment
the fierce anger of the Lord. We have here, I. His great
wickedness, ver. 1-4. II.
The trouble he brought himself into by it, ver. 5-8. III. The reproof which God sent
by a prophet to the army of Israel for trampling upon their
brethren of Judah, and the obedient ear they gave to that reproof,
ver. 9-15. IV. The many
calamities that followed to Ahaz and his people, ver. 16-21. V. The continuance of his
idolatry notwithstanding (ver.
22-25), and so his story ends, ver. 26, 27.
