2 Chronicles 10:1-19 - Exposition

The verses of this chapter, nineteen in number, correspond with those of 1 Kings 12:1-19 . They so correspond as to convince us that both writers took from one original, or, at any rate, one former source. But they are particularly instructive also in another direction. Our 1 Kings 12:2 and 1 Kings 12:3 are in order, and quite intelligible. 1 Kings 12:2 and 1 Kings 12:3 of the parallel are not so, and convince us either that the carelessness of copyists was more than usual (even when our Authorized Version "of it" is cancelled) or, which is a by far less acceptable supposition, that the carelessness of the compiler or writer was great. Though these two lengths of nineteen verses each so closely correspond as to show both indebted to one former source, they also evince clearly that neither writer absolutely bound himself by the exact words of his pattern, but took the meaning, and slightly altered, so to say, grammar and syntax of sentences.
