    Clarke's Commentary on 2 Chronicles 34:32

    To stand to it - It is likely that he caused them all to arise when he read the terms of the covenant, and thus testify their approbation of the covenant itself, and their resolution to observe it faithfully and perseveringly.

    Barnes' Notes on 2 Chronicles 34:32

    And Benjamin - It is scarcely possible that the text here can be sound. "Benjamin" is never put in contrast with "Jerusalem," but always with Judah. The reading may be corrected from the parallel passage 2 Kings 23:3; "And he caused all those that were present in Jerusalem to stand to the covenant."

    Wesley's Notes on 2 Chronicles 34:32

    34:32 To stand to it - He caused them to engage by an oath or covenant, that they would observe the laws of God, as his predecessors had formerly done, and which indeed they were before obliged to do.
