XXIX.

HEZEKIAH (chaps, 29-32.; 2 Kings 18-20); Chap. 29.

LENGTH AND SPIRIT OF THE REIGN. THE SOLEMN PURGATION AND HALLOWING OF THE TEMPLE.

(1) Hezekiah.--Heb., Y?hizqiy?hu, as if "Strong is Iahu." 2 Kings writes Hizkiy?h, "My strength is Iah;" Isaiah 27, sqq., Hizkiy?hu. The annals of Sennacherib present the form Hazakiyahu.

Abijan.--2 Kings has the shortened form Abi. (This verse closely corresponds with 2Kings 18:2.)

Verse 1. - Hezekiah. The Ezekias (as by margin) of Matthew 1:9. Five and twenty years old. We have been told (2 Chronicles 28:1) that Ahaz was twenty years old when he began to reign, and reigned sixteen years. So that, if these numbers be correct, and the numbers of our verse correct, Hezekiah must have been born when his father was only eleven years old. Of which all that can be said is, with Keil, that such a thing was not impossible and not unknown. It is far more probable, however, that one of the determining figures is wrong, but we have nothing to guide us to say which. Abijah. The parallel spells this name "Abi," omitting the final he, and dagesh in yod. Zechariah. This may, perhaps, have been the Zechariah whose name accompanies the mention of the name of "Uriah the priest" in Isaiah 8:2, where we may be surprised to find Uriah called a "faithful witness," when we remember his associations with Ahaz, as told in our foregoing chapter. Some refer our Zechariah, however, to him of 2 Chronicles 26:5.
