2 Chronicles 11:14 Parallel
CommentaryWesley's Notes on the Bible
11:14 Cast them off - They would not suffer them to instruct the Israelites in the worship of God, nor to go up to Jerusalem to worship in their courses: and these priests would not join with them in the worship of the calves, as they were commanded to do; and therefore they, willingly forsook all their patrimonies and possessions for God's sake. No secular advantages whatsoever should detain us there, where we are in danger of making shipwreck of faith and a good conscience.
"Command the people of Israel to give to the Levites from their property certain towns to live in, along with the surrounding pasturelands.
