2 Chronicles 23:16 Commentary - English Annotations on the Holy Bible by Matthew Poole
Between him, i.e. the Lord, as is sufficiently implied in the end of this verse, and plainly expressed 2Ki 11:17. Or, between himself; that the people might see that he brought them under no bond but what he would take upon himself.
That they should be the Lord’s people, i.e. that every one in his place and station would maintain the law and worship of God, and root out all false worship; which they did in the next verse.

English Annotations on the Holy Bible by Matthew Poole
Matthew Poole (1624–1679) wrote English Annotations on the Holy Bible, completing the chapters as far as Isaiah 58 before his death in 1679. The rest of the Annotations were completed by friends and colleagues among his Nonconformist brethren. The first printing of the completed edition was in 1685, 2 volumes folio, followed by editions in 1688, 1696 (with valuable chapter outlines added by the editors, Samuel Clark and Edward Veale), and the 4th and definitive edition in 1700, the basis of all others.
