Chapter 25

Amaziah’s reign, recorded in this chapter, was not one of the worse and yet for from good. Most of the passages in this chapter we had before more briefly related, 2 Kgs. 14:1-22 Here we find Amaziah, I. A just revenger of his father’s death, 2 Chron. 25:1-4. II. An obedient observer of the command of God, 2 Chron. 25:5-10. III. A cruel conqueror of the Edomites, 2 Chron. 25:11-13. IV. A foolish worshipper of the gods of Edom and impatient of reproof for it, 2 Chron. 25:14-16. V. Rashly challenging the king of Israel, and smarting for his rashness, 2 Chron. 25:17-24. And, lastly, ending his days ingloriously, 2 Chron. 25:25-28.
