      1  Jotham reigning well, prospers.
     5  He subdues the Ammonites.
     7  His reign and death; Ahaz succeeds him.
    
    
    VERSE 1
    - A.M. 3246-3262.  B.C. 753-742.  twenty and five.
       * 2Ki 15:32,33-38 1Ch 3:12 Isa 1:1 Ho 1:1 Mic 1:1 Mt 1:9
    - Joatham.
    
    
    VERSE 2 
     - And he did.
       * 2Ch 26:4 2Ki 15:34
    - he entered not.
      He copied his father's conduct as far as it was pious and
      constitutional; and avoided his transgression.
    
       * 2Ch 26:16-21 Ps 120 119:120 Ac 5:13
    - the people.
       * 2Ki 15:35
    
    
    VERSE 3 
     - high gate.
       * 2Ch 23:20 Jer 20:2
    - Ophel.  or, the tower.
      "The wall," says the Targum, "of the interior palace." {Ophel}
      appears to have been a tower, or fort, on the city wall, in
      which we read "the Nehthinim dwelt."
    
       * 2Ch 33:14 Ne 3:26,27
    
    
    VERSE 4 
     - he built cities.
       * 2Ch 11:5-10; 14:7; 26:9,10
    - the mountains.
       * Jos 14:12,13 Lu 1:39
    - castles and towers.
      These castles and towers he doubtless built built for the
      protection of the country people against marauders.
    
    
    VERSE 5 
     - the king of the Ammonites.
      We find here, that he brought the Ammonites under a heavy
      tribute for three years; but whether this was the effect of
      his prevailing against them, is not so evident.  Some think
      that they paid this tribute for three years, and then
      revolted; that, in consequence, he attacked them, and their
      utter subjection was the result.
    
       * 2Ch 20:1 Jud 11:4-33 2Sa 10:1-14 Jer 49:1-6
    - ten thousand.
      Rather, "ten thousand {cors} (korim) of wheat."  The {cor} was
      same as the {homer,} and contained about 32 pecks 1 pint.
    
    - So much.  Heb. This.
    
    
    VERSE 6 
     - Jotham.
       * 2Ch 26:5
    - prepared.  or, established.
       * 2Ch 19:3
    
    
    VERSE 7 
     - Now the rest.
       * 2Ch 20:34; 26:22,23; 32:32,33
    - A.M. 3262.  B.C. 742.  they are written.
      There is not so much found in the book of Kings, which we have
      now, as here:  in both places we have abridged accounts; the
      larger histories having been lost.
    
    
    VERSE 8 
     - He was.
       * :1 2Ki 15:33
    
    
    VERSE 9
