Second Chronicles 2 Chron. 11:5-23; 13:1-21; 14:6-23; 15:1-15; 17:1-19; 19:1-11; 20:1-30; 21:12-18; 24:14-24; 25:5-16; 26:6-21; 28:8-15; 29:3—32:8; and 2 Chron. 33:11-17; 34:3-7 are a supplement to the history of twelve of the kings of Judah, giving details not found elsewhere concerning God’s dealing with them and also telling us the reasons God dealt with them in the way that He did. In this supplement none of the kings of Israel is included because all those kings forsook both the proper ground, the ground of Jerusalem (1 Kings 12:25-33), and the fundamental faith given by God through Moses. Thus, God forsook them because of their apostasy. Unlike the kings of Israel, the kings of Judah remained on the ground of the unity of God’s chosen people and kept the oneness according to the fundamental teaching of Moses (2 Chron. 13:4-11). See note Matt. 1:71a, par. 2.
