    Clarke's Commentary on 2 Chronicles 24:22

    The Lord look upon it, and require it - And so he did; for, at the end of that year, the Syrians came against Judah, destroyed all the princes of the people, sent their spoils to Damascus; and Joash, the murderer of the prophet, the son of his benefactor, was himself murdered by his own servants. Here was a most signal display of the Divine retribution.

    On the subject of the death of this prophet the reader is requested to refer to the note on Matthew 23:34, Matthew 23:35.

    Barnes' Notes on 2 Chronicles 24:22

    The Lord look upon it and require it - Compare Genesis 9:5; Genesis 42:22; and contrast the words of Christ Luke 23:34, and of Stephen Acts 7:60. Zechariah's prayer was prophetic (see 2 Chronicles 24:23, 2 Chronicles 24:25; Luke 11:51).

    Wesley's Notes on 2 Chronicles 24:22
