2 Chronicles 24:5 Commentary - English Annotations on the Holy Bible by Matthew Poole

Gather of all Israel, i.e. of all the Israelites that were in the kingdom of Judah. See 2Ch 15:17; 21:2. To repair the house of your God from year to year; either,

1. Repair part of it every year till the reparations be perfected; or,

2. Gather it from year to year, till you get such a sum as may suffice for the work; for he supposed one or two years’ collection would not suffice for the work, whether it were that collection of half a shekel for every man, of which see Exo 30:12,13; 2Ki 12:14; or a voluntary contribution required for the present exigence of the temple by virtue of the command and example of Moses, who made such a collection for the building of the tabernacle, Exo 35:5; see also Neh 10:32; which he thought would not be any great sum, because of the great iniquity and impiety which yet had reigned for many years, and yet continued in the generality of the people of the land, the Levites not excepted, as the last clause of this verse shows.
