    Clarke's Commentary on 2 Chronicles 28:21

    But he helped him not - He did him no ultimate service. See the note on 2 Kings 16:9.

    After 2 Kings 16:15, the 23d, 24th, and 25th verses are introduced before the 16th, in the Syriac and Arabic, and the 22d verse is wholly wanting in both, though some of the expressions may be found in the twenty-first verse.
