Go, inquire of the LORD for me, and for them that are left in Israel and in Judah, concerning the words of the book that is found: for great is the wrath of the LORD that is poured out upon us, because our fathers have not kept the word of the LORD, to do after all that is written in this book…









(26) To enquire of the Lord.--Strictly, through the Lord. Kings has the accusative.

Against this place.--Kings adds, "that it should become an astonishment and a curse."

And humbledst thyself before me.--Not in Kings. A characteristic repetition.

And weep.--Shorter form of the verb; a correction of Kings (watt?bk for wattebkeh).

I.--Emphatic. (Kings has the longer form 'anoki for our 'ani.)

Saith the Lord.--Is the utterance of Jehovah (ne'-m Iahweh).

Grave.--Heb., graves. (Comp. 2Chronicles 16:14.)

And upon the inhabitants of the same.--Added by the chronicler.
