(10) Azariah.--Possibly the Azariah of 2Chronicles 26:17. If not, he is otherwise unknown.

Since the people began to bring the offerings.--Since they began to bring the T?r-m?h: a word which the Authorised Version usually renders "heave offering." (See Note on 2Chronicles 31:6.)

To bring.--In the Hebrew a contracted form, recurring in Jeremiah 39:7.

We have had enough to eat, and have left plenty.--Literally, Eating and being satisfied, and leaving over, even unto abundance (exclamatory infinitives). (Comp. Hosea 4:2 for this construction.) . . .

Verse 10. - Azariah... chief priest of the house of Zadok. Though this Azariah be of the house of Zadok, he is not of the line of Jozadak; and we cannot be certain that he is one with him of 2 Chronicles 26:17, 20; in which case his grandson Jotham (2 Chronicles 27:1) would be grandfather of Hezekiah, inferring a long term both for his office and his life.
