Bible Commentary for 2 Chronicles 10:6

Wesley's Notes for 2 Chronicles 10:6


10:4 Grievous - It is probable, when Solomon had declined from God, that God left him to himself to act thus impolitically.

10:7 If thou be kind, &c. - Moderate counsels are generally best. Gentleness will do what violence will not do. Good words cost nothing but a little self - denial, and yet they purchase great things.
