AbstractThis article examines 2 Chronicles 21 and the description it provides of Jehoram of Judah’s reign, which diverges widely from the parallel in 2 Kings 8. Addressing some of the structural, substantive, and linguistic issues that arise from the text, it suggests that this chapter integrates two perspectives regarding Jehoram, each of which contain different details—that are nonetheless essentially interlinked. The proposal offered herein resolves some of the fundamental questions relating to the text, including the structure of the chapter and the duplications and meaning of the unique phrases it contains. The paper also discusses the Chronicler’s views concerning the family and Israelite kingship and the manner in which the promise to the house of David is presented in the chapter.
