Bible Commentary for 2 Kings 16:6

Wesley's Notes for 2 Kings 16:6


16:5 Could not overcome - Because God of his own mere grace, undertook his protection, and disappointed the hopes of his enemies.

16:7 Sent messengers, &c. - But was it because there was no God in Israel, that he sent to the Assyrian for help? The sin itself was its own punishment; for tho' it served his present turn, yet he made but an ill bargain, seeing he not only impoverished himself, but enslaved both himself and his people.
