Book of 2nd. Chronicles

The records which make up 1 Chron. and 2 Chron. were written in Palestine, 1279-461 B.C. by scribes and prophets whose duty it was to record events during the time of whatever king or kings they served under. These records were put into one book by the final author or authors. The one book was divided into two by the Septuagint translators about 294-289 B.C. If written by Isaiah and Ezra in its final form the book was compiled 743-683 B.C. and 546-461 B.C.  Chronicles is a genealogical background of the Israelite leaders and of the coming Messiah, and a history of the kingdom of Judah and of the human ancestors of Jesus Christ. The objective was to show the divine reason for God's dealings with Israel and why the Davidic kingdom was not allowed to continue perpetually.
