Clarke's Bible Commentary - 2 Chronicles 31:7 Verse 7. In the third month] "The month Sivan; the seventh, Tisri." -Targum.
The heaps] The vast collections of grain which they had from the tithes over and above their own consumption; see 2 Chron. xxxi. 10.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 7. In the third month they began to lay the foundation of the heaps . etc.] The month Sivan, as the Targum, in which month was the feast of Pentecost, called the feast of the harvest, ( Exodus 23:16), for then barley harvest was ended, and wheat harvest began, and the firstfruits were brought: and finished them in the seventh month ; the month Tisri, as the Targum, in which was the feast of tabernacles, sometimes called the feast of ingathering, of the fruits of the earth, the wine, oil, etc. and so a proper time for bringing the tithes of all.
Matthew Henry Commentary Hezekiah destroys idolatry.
--After the passover, the people of Israel applied with vigour to destroy the monuments of idolatry. Public ordinances should stir us u to cleanse our hearts, our houses, and shops, from the filth of sin and the idolatry of covetousness, and to excite others to do the same The after-improvement of solemn ordinances, is of the greates importance to personal, family, and public religion. When they ha tasted the sweetness of God's ordinance in the late passover, they wer free in maintaining the temple service. Those who enjoy the benefit of a settled ministry, will not grudge the expense of it. In all tha Hezekiah attempted in God's service, he was earnest and single in his aim and dependence, and was prospered accordingly. Whether we have fe or many talents intrusted to us, may we thus seek to improve them, an encourage others to do the same. What is undertaken with a sincer regard to the glory of God, will succeed to our own honour and comfor at last __________________________________________________________________
