    Clarke's Commentary on 2 Chronicles 31:7

    In the third month - "The month Sivan; the seventh, Tisri." - Targum.

    The heaps - The vast collections of grain which they had from the tithes over and above their own consumption; see 2 Chronicles 31:10.

    Barnes' Notes on 2 Chronicles 31:7

    The third month - Compare 2 Chronicles 29:3; 2 Chronicles 30:2, 2 Chronicles 30:13. The events hitherto described - the destruction of the high places, the re-appointment of the courses, and the re-establishment of the tithes followed so closely upon the Passover, that a month had not elapsed from the conclusion of the Feast before the gifts began to pour in. In the seventh month the harvest was completed; and the last tithes and first-fruits of the year would naturally come in then.

    Wesley's Notes on 2 Chronicles 31:7

    31:7 Third month - Of the sacred year, in which their harvest began. Seventh - In which their harvest ended and the feast of tabernacles was kept.
