Treasury of Scripture

At that time did king Ahaz send to the kings of Assyria to help him.

did king

2 Kings 16:5-7
Then Rezin king of Syria and Pekah son of Remaliah king of Israel came up to Jerusalem to war: and they besieged Ahaz, but could not overcome him

Isaiah 7:1-9,17
And it came to pass in the days of Ahaz the son of Jotham, the son of Uzziah, king of Judah, that Rezin the king of Syria, and Pekah the son of Remaliah, king of Israel, went up toward Jerusalem to war against it, but could not prevail against it…









UNDER THE PRESSURE OF NEW ENEMIES, AHAZ ASKS HELP FROM ASSYRIA, BUT RECEIVES HURT (2Chronicles 28:17-21). (Comp. 2Kings 16:7-18.)

(16) At that time.--Apparently after the events above narrated; how soon after we can hardly decide.

The kings of Assyria.--A generalised expression, as in 2Chronicles 28:3 (comp. 2Chronicles 28:20-21), where the actual king is named. All the old versions have "king."

Verse 16. - At that time did King Ahaz... kings of Assyria. The vagueness of this common formula, "at that time," would doubtless not have been apparent in the original sources. In the present instance we may fall back on our vers. 5, 6 to give it distinctness; but see vers. 5, 6, 7 of the parallel, which involve their own formula and the present in some little uncertainty. The kings of Assyria. The Septuagint and other versions show the singular number. Our plural may perhaps find an explanation in 2 Chronicles 30:6; 2 Chronicles 32:4.
