    Clarke's Commentary on 2 Chronicles 32:25

    Hezekiah rendered not again - He got into a vain confidence, took pleasure in his riches, and vainly showed them to the messengers of the king of Babylon. See on 2 Kings 20:12 (note), etc.

    Barnes' Notes on 2 Chronicles 32:25

    His heart was lifted up - Compare the marginal reference. Hezekiah's pride was shown in his unnecessarily exhibiting his treasures to the ambassadors from Babylon (see 2 Kings 20:13).

    There was wrath upon him - Compare 2 Kings 20:17-18.

    Wesley's Notes on 2 Chronicles 32:25

    32:25 Lifted up - For that prodigious victory over the Assyrians, for his miraculous restoration from sickness, and for the honour since done him by an embassy from the great king of Babylon. All which probably raised in him too great an opinion of himself, as if these things were done for his piety and virtues.
