    Clarke's Commentary on 2 Chronicles 20:33

    The high places were not taken away - The idolatry, as we have seen, was universally suppressed; but some of the places where that worship had been performed were not destroyed. Some of them still remained; and these, to such a fickle people, became the means of idolatry in reigns less propitious to truth and religion.

    Barnes' Notes on 2 Chronicles 20:33

    The latter clause of this verse helps to reconcile the first clause with the statement that Jehoshaphat "took away the high places" (see 2 Chronicles 15:17 note).

    Wesley's Notes on 2 Chronicles 20:33

    20:33 Not taken - Not universally; the fault was not in Jehoshaphat, but in the people, who, though they did worship the true God, yet would not be confined to the temple, but for their own conveniency, or from their affection to their ancient custom chose to worship him in the high - places.
