2 Chronicles 11* Rehoboam forbidden to war against Israel. (1-12) The priestsand Levites find refuge in Judah. (13-23)1-12 A few good words might have prevented the rebellion ofRehoboam's subjects; but all the force of his kingdom cannotbring them back. And it is in vain to contend with the purposeof God, when it is made known to us. Even those who aredestitute of true faith, will at times pay some regard to theword of God, and be kept by it from wrong actions, to which theyare prone by nature. 13-23 When the priests and Levites came to Jerusalem, thedevout, pious Israelites followed them. Such as set their heartsto seek the Lord God of Israel, left the inheritance of theirfathers, and went to Jerusalem, that they might have free accessto the altar of God, and be out of the temptation to worship thecalves. That is best for us, which is best for our souls; in allour choices, religious advantages must be sought before alloutward conveniences. Where God's faithful priests are, hisfaithful people should be. And when it has been proved that weare willing to renounce our worldly interests, so far as we arecalled to do so for the sake of Christ and his gospel, we havegood evidence that we are truly his disciples. And it is theinterest of a nation to protect religion and religious people.
