    Barnes' Notes on 2 Chronicles 29:1

    The treatment of Hezekiah's reign by the author of Chronicles is in marked contrast with that followed in the Book of Kings. The writer of Kings describes mainly civil affairs; the author of Chronicles gives a full account of Hezekiah's religious reformation. 2 Chronicles 29-31 contain matter, therefore, which is almost wholly new.
