2 Chronicles 34:27 Parallel
Commentary
Clarke's Commentary on the Bible

Because thine heart was tender - "Because thy heart was melted, and thou hast humbled thyself in the sight of the Word of the Lord, מימרא דיי meymera daya, when thou didst hear his words, ית פתגמוי yath pithgamoi, against this place," etc. Here the Targum most evidently distinguishes between מימרא meymera, the Personal Word, and פתגם pithgam, a word spoken or expressed.

Treasury of Scripture Knowledge

Because `Because,' says the Targumist, `thy heart was melted, and thou hast humbled thyself in the sight of the word of the Lord, meymra dyya, when thou didst hear His words, yath pithgamoi, against this place.' Here meymra, the personal word, is plainly distinguished from pithgam, a word spoken.

Josiah
'Josiah was eight years old when he began to reign, and he reigned in Jerusalem one and thirty years. 2.

This reform movement, by which threatened judgments were averted for a season, was brought about in a wholly unexpected manner through the discovery and study of a portion of Holy Scripture that for many years had been strangely misplaced and lost. Nearly a century before, during
