God Made Him to Prosper 2 Chronicles 26:1-15 The reign of Uzziah was, to all appearance, extremely prosperous; but his personal character deteriorated, as though it could not bear an unbroken succession of prosperity. Proofs of his genius for empire are furnished by his successful wars, 2 Chronicles 26:6-7 , his widespread fame, 2 Chronicles 26:8 , his buildings and husbandry, 2 Chronicles 26:9-10 , and his armies and engines of war, 2 Chronicles 26:11 ; 2 Chronicles 26:15 . In all these “he... read more

G. Campbell Morgan's Exposition on the Whole Bible - 2 Chronicles 26:1-23

The story of Uzziah's long reign of fifty-two years is most interesting and remarkable. He was a man of strong character, and the early part of his occupancy of the throne was characterized by true prosperity. He was at once victorious in his campaigns against the enemies of the people, and remarkably successful in his internal development of the resources of the nation. A man of war, and a lover of husbandry, he was an ideal ruler. During these early years he went quietly forward in... read more

2 Chronicles 26:1-Isaiah : . The Reign of Uzziah (see notes on 2 Kings 14:21 to 2 Kings 15:7).— The Chronicler amplifies considerably the account of this reign in 2 K. which is very meagre: his additions are in all probability based, in the main, upon some historical source, since fuller records of this reign, which was one of the longest in the history of Judah, must have been in existence. 2 Chronicles 26:1 .

2 Chronicles 26:1 . Uzziah is called Azariah in 2 Kings 14:21. 2 Chronicles 26:5 . Uzziah sought God in the days of Zechariah. This good priest being dead, as above, it must mean that Zechariah had established a course of religious instruction for youth, and that this prince had been educated by Jecoliah his mother, in those happy rudiments. He had understanding in the visions of God, and was a learned expositor of the law. 2 Chronicles 26:6 . Brake down the wall of Jabneh, twelve... read more
