Amaziah's reign, recorded in this chapter, was not
one of the worse and yet for from good. Most of the passages in
this chapter we had before more briefly related, 2 Kings xiv. Here we find Amaziah, I. A
just revenger of his father's death, ver. 1-4. II. An obedient observer of the
command of God, ver.
5-10. III. A cruel conqueror of the Edomites, ver. 11-13. IV. A foolish
worshipper of the gods of Edom and impatient of reproof for it,
ver. 14-16. V. Rashly
challenging the king of Israel, and smarting for his rashness,
ver. 17-24. And,
lastly, ending his days ingloriously, ver. 25-28.
