Matthew Henry 2Ch 33:21,22

June 11, 2009

2Ch 33:21  Amon was two and twenty years old when he began to reign, and reigned two years in Jerusalem.
2Ch 33:22  But he did that which was evil in the sight of the LORD, as did Manasseh his father: for Amon sacrificed unto all the carved images which Manasseh his father had made, and served them;

1. That he out-did his father in sinning: He trespassed more and more, 2Ch_33:23. His father did ill, but he did worse. Those that were joined to idols grew more and more mad upon them. 2. That he came short of his father in repenting: He humbled not himself before the Lord, as his father had humbled himself. He fell like him, but did not get up again like him. It is not so much sin as impenitence in sin that ruins men, not so much that they offend as that they do not humble themselves for their offences, not the disease, but the neglect of the remedy.
