2 Chronicles 25:16 Commentary - English Annotations on the Holy Bible by Matthew Poole
Art thou made of the king’s counsel? who art thou that presumest to direct and govern my affairs, without my commission?
Why shouldest thou be smitten? provoke me no further, lest I cause thee to be killed for thy sauciness.
I know that God hath determined to destroy thee: this he might know, either by the plain and positive rules of God’s word, as Pro 29:1, or by the suggestion of God’s Spirit.

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.
