2 Kings 21:7

And the loftiness of man shall be bowed down, and the haughtiness of men shall be made low: and the LORD alone shall be exalted in that day…









(15) Took away the strange gods.--Comp. 2Chronicles 33:3-7. For the phrase "strange gods" (?lohe n?k?r), see Genesis 35:2.

The idol.--That is, the Asherah (2Chronicles 33:3; 2Chronicles 33:7; 2Kings 21:7; 2Kings 17:16). . . .

Verse 15. - It will be noted how the mount of the house of the Lord is here differenced from the city. "The city" seems to have comprised the two hills east and west of the Tyropoean valley, and the "fore" city enclosed by the new wall (see Dr. Murphy's valuable little 'Handbook to Chronicles'). The strange gods, the idol, and the altars have all been mentioned in vers. 3-7.
