Wesley's Notes for 2 Chronicles 31:5


31:5 Came abroad - As Soon as the king extended that command to all the parts of his kingdom, which, ver.#4|, was confined to them that dwelt in Jerusalem. Honey - Or, dates, as the Hebrew writers generally, understand this word, which were given to them, because of the sweetness of their taste in some sort resembling honey. For the law requires no tithes, but of the fruits of trees, or of the earth, or of beasts.
