Treasury of Scripture

And they buried him in the city of David among the kings, because he had done good in Israel, both toward God, and toward his house.

in the city

1 Samuel 2:30
Wherefore the LORD God of Israel saith, I said indeed that thy house, and the house of thy father, should walk before me for ever: but now the LORD saith, Be it far from me; for them that honour me I will honour, and they that despise me shall be lightly esteemed.

1 Kings 2:10
So David slept with his fathers, and was buried in the city of David.

Acts 2:29
Men and brethren, let me freely speak unto you of the patriarch David, that he is both dead and buried, and his sepulchre is with us unto this day.

because

2 Chronicles 23:1-21
And in the seventh year Jehoiada strengthened himself, and took the captains of hundreds, Azariah the son of Jeroham, and Ishmael the son of Jehohanan, and Azariah the son of Obed, and Maaseiah the son of Adaiah, and Elishaphat the son of Zichri, into covenant with him…

2 Chronicles 31:20
And thus did Hezekiah throughout all Judah, and wrought that which was good and right and truth before the LORD his God.

Nehemiah 13:14
Remember me, O my God, concerning this, and wipe not out my good deeds that I have done for the house of my God, and for the offices thereof.









(16) Among the kings.--Literally, with. "Because he had done good;" and also, perhaps, as having been regent for so many years, and connected by marriage with the royal house (2Chronicles 22:11).

Verse 16. - The honour done Jehoiada well belonged to him, not only for his goodness, his greatness, his practical services to the kingdom, but for the fact that those practical services had entailed the necessity of his standing in loco regis for some time. His royal alliance with Jeheram's daughter, and, if it were so, his extreme patriarchal age, may all have contributed to the honour now put upon him. Little stress can be laid, however, upon this last consideration, failing any other allusion to it, or any emphasized statement of what we have in our ver. 15.
