    Barnes' Notes on 2 Chronicles 25:8

    If the present text is regarded as sound, this passage must be taken ironically. But most recent commentators supply a second negative, and render it: "But go thou alone, act, be strong for the battle - God shall then not make thee to fall."

    Wesley's Notes on 2 Chronicles 25:8

    25:8 Do it - It is an ironical concession like that, go, and prosper.
