Our oldest Hebrew MS. relieves us here, by reading truly, in verses 1, 6, 7, Uzziah, where the printed text is differently corrupted. This reading is called true, 1. Because it is supported by the Syriac and Arabic versions in these three verses. 2. Because the printed text itself has it so in ver. 32 and 34 of this very chapter. 3. Because it is so expressed in the parallel place in Chronicles: and 4. Because it is not [Azarias,] Azarias, but [Ozias,] Ozias, (Uzziah) in St. Matthew's genealogy they not written.14:18; 2Ch 26:5-15 A.M. 3246. B.C. 758.2Ch 26:23; Isa 6:1Uzziah. A.M. 3231.

Pul.Prideaux supposes that this Pul was the father of the famous Sardanapalus, who was called Sardan with his father's name Pul annexed, as was frequent in those times, making Sardanpul: thus Merodach, king of Babylon, was Merodach-Baladan, because he was the son Baladan. This Pul began to reign according to Usher, A.M. 3237, the fifth year of Menahem; and he is supposed to be the same that reigned in Nineveh, when Jonah preached in that city. 1Ch 5:25,26; Isa 9:1Menahem.12:18; 16:8; 17:3,4; 18:16; Ho 5:13; 8:9,10; 10:6to confirm.14:5; Jer 17:5 Menahem.23:35exacted.

He reigned nineteen years, from A.M. 3257 to A.M. 3276. 16:7; 1Ch 5:6,26; 2Ch 28:20,21Tiglath-pilneser.Isa 9:1Ijon.1Ki 15:20; 2Ch 16:4Abel-beth-maachah.2Sa 20:14,15Janoah.Jos 16:6Janohah.

In those days."At the end of Jotham's reign." This Jotham died at forty-one. He was too great a blessing to be continued long to such an unworthy people. His death was a judgment, especially considering the character of Ahaz, his son and successor: for we read, (16:3) Ahaz made his son pass through the fire. This son may have been Hezekiah, who served the Lord, and whose prayer in sickness was most graciously herd and answered.
