2 Chronicles 17:17 Parallel
Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

This attempt of Jehoshaphat brought him this blessing, that the terror of Jahve fell upon all the surrounding kingdoms; and not only did none of the neighbouring peoples venture to make war upon him, but also various tribes did homage to him by presents. Ramb. has already so understood the connection of these verses (erat hoc praemium pietatis Josaphati, quod vicini satisque potentes hostes non auderent adversus ipsum hiscere); while Berth. fails to apprehend it, saying that Jehoshaphat had time to care for the instruction of his people, because at that time the neighbouring peoples did not venture to undertake war against Judah. The words "terror of Jahve," cf. 2 Chronicles 14:13; 2 Chronicles 20:29, and "all the kingdoms of the lands," cf. 2 Chronicles 12:8, 1 Chronicles 29:30, are expressions peculiar to the author of the Chronicle, which show that by these remarks he is preparing the way for a transition to a more detailed portrayal of Jehoshaphat's political power. מן־פּלשׁתּים is subject, מן partitive: some of the Philistines brought him presents (for מנחה see on 2 Chronicles 17:5), "and silver a burden," i.e., in great quantity. משּׂא does not signify tribute, vectigal argento (Vulg.), for the word has not that signification, but denotes burden, that which can be carried, as in משּׂא לאן, 2 Chronicles 20:25. - ערביאים or ערביּים, 2 Chronicles 26:7, and more usually ערבים, 2 Chronicles 21:16; 2 Chronicles 22:1, are Arabian nomadic tribes (Bedwin), perhaps those whom Asa, after his victory over the Cushite Zerah, had brought under the kingdom of Judah, 2 Chronicles 14:14. These paid their tribute in small cattle, rams, and he-goats. (תּישׁים, Genesis 30:35; Genesis 32:15; Proverbs 30:31.)
