G. Campbell Morgan's Exposition on the Whole Bible - 2 Chronicles 10:1-19

Despotism is seldom transmissible. That Solomon had been an autocrat and had ruled with a hand of iron under the velvet is evidenced by the words of the men of Israel, "Thy father hath made our yoke grievous." If this is a startling suggestion, history testifies to the likelihood of its correctness. Some of the worst tyrants the world ever had robbed the people of their rights, and kept them passive by the deadly drug of gorgeous displays. So did Lorenzo de Medici in Florence; so did our own... read more

Preacher's Complete Homiletical Commentary - 2 Chronicles 10:1-19

Chuck Smith Bible Commentary - 2 Chronicles 10:1-19

Shall we turn in our Bibles to II Chronicles, chapter 10.The children of Israel have been brought out of Egypt by Moses. Through the leadership of Joshua they were brought into the land that God had promised to their fathers, Abraham and Jacob. For a period of time in the land they were ruled by judges. But there came a time when they began to demand that Samuel would anoint them or appoint them a king. As the other nations around them had kings, they also desired a king to rule over them.Now,... read more

2 Chronicles 10:1-19And Rehoboam went to Shechem.RehoboamA cause so stated must succeed. There will be difficulty, but the end is assured. The reasonable always triumphs, due time being given for the elucidation of its purposes, and the manifestation of its real spirit. Violence can have but a short day; the tempest cries itself to rest. “Ease thou somewhat the grievous servitude of thy father, and his heavy yoke that he put upon us, and we will serve thee.” They wanted ease for service, for... read more
