Chapter Summary

Much time and energy has been spent so far in exposing the origin and possible historical kernel of the intriguing narrative of 2 Chronicles 20. It is impossible to discuss the narrative of 2 Chronicles 20 in full detail. This chapter pays attention to a special feature of the narrative of 2 Chronicles 20, to wit its threefold address. The Book of Chronicles contains a remarkable number of speeches which, in comparison with the Books of Samuel and Kings, reveals a very important fact: the Chronicler takes here his own line. Out of a number of twenty-one royal addresses presented by the author, no less than seventeen are his own creation. Fourteen prophetical addresses out of a total number of eighteen have no parallel in Samuel-Kings. Dealing with nine royal prayers in 1-2 Chronicles, four of them cannot be found in the parallel texts of Samuel and Kings.

Keywords: 2 Chronicles 20; Kings; prophetical addresses; royal addresses; royal prayers; Samuel
