    Barnes' Notes on 2 Chronicles 28:7

    Maaseiah was either an officer called "the king's son" (compare 1 Kings 22:26), or perhaps a son of Jotham, since Ahaz could hardly have had a son old enough to take part in the battle (compare 2 Chronicles 28:1).

    Elkanah, as "second to the king," was probably the chief of the royal counselors.
