VERSE 1 - See on ch. * 1Ki 14:31 2Ch 13:1,2-22 VERSE 2 - his mother's. * :13 2Ch 11:20-22 - Maachah. * 2Ch 13:2 - Michaiah the daughter of Uriel. Abishalom. * 2Ch 11:21 - Absalom.

See on ver. * :3; 14:8 2Ki 22:2 2Ch 34:2 Ps 119:6 Lu 1:6 Ac 13:22,36 - save only. * 2Sa 11:4,15-17; 12:9,10 Ps 51:1 *title VERSE 6 - there was war. Instead of Rehoboam fourteen MSS., the Arabic, and some copies of the Targum, read Abijam. The Syriac has "Abia, the son of Rehoboam;" and the Editio Princeps of the Vulgate has Abia. This is doubtless the true reading, as otherwise it would be an unnecessary repetition of ch. 30 14:30, and a repetition which interrupts the history of Abijah: (see 2 Ch 3 13:3, etc.) - See on ch. * 1Ki 14:30 VERSE 7 - the rest. See on ch. * 1Ki 14:29 2Ch 13:2,21,22 - there was war. * 2Ch 13:3-20 VERSE 8 - A.M. 3049. B.C. 955. Abijam.

See on ch. * 1Ki 14:24; 22:46 Ro 1:26,27 Jude 1:7 - all the idols. * :3; 11:7,8; 14:23 2Ch 14:2-5 Eze 20:18,19 Zec 1:2-6 1Pe 1:18 VERSE 13 - Maachah. * :2,10 2Ch 15:15,16-19 - his mother. * De 13:6-11; 33:9 Zec 13:3 Mt 10:37; 12:46-50 2Co 5:16 * Ga 2:5,6,14 - destroyed.

By building Ramah is here meant fortifying it, in order to prevent all intercourse with the kingdom of Judah, lest his subjects should cleave to the house of David: for Ramah was a city of Benjamin, situated on the confines of both kingdoms, probably on a hill, as the name imports, commanding a narrow defile between the mountains, through which lay the principal road to Jerusalem; so that a fortification being erected here, no communication could be held between the people of Israel and Judah, without Baasha's permission. * :21 Jos 18:25 1Sa 15:34 Jer 31:15 - he might not suffer. * 1Ki 12:27 2Ch 11:13-17 VERSE 18 - Asa. * :15; 14:26 2Ki 12:18; 18:15,16 2Ch 15:18; 16:2-6 - Ben-hadad. * 1Ki 20:1-5,33,34 2Ki 8:7-15 - Damascus. * 1Ki 11:23,24 Ge 14:15; 15:2 Jer 49:27 Am 1:4 VERSE 19 - There is a league. * 2Ch 19:2 Isa 31:1 - break thy league. * 2Sa 21:2 2Ch 16:3 Eze 17:13-16 Ro 1:31; 3:8 - depart. Heb. go up. VERSE 20 - Ijon. Probably the same as Hazar-enan, a frontier town to Damascus, (Eze 48:1;) and perhaps the Inna of Coele-Syria, long. 68 degrees and a half, lat. 33, according to Ptolemy. * 2Ki 15:29 - Dan. * 1Ki 12:29 Ge 14:14 Jud 18:29 - Abel-beth-maachah. * 2Sa 20:14,15 - Cinneroth. * Jos 11:2; 12:3 VERSE 21 - when Baasha. * 2Ch 16:5 - Tirzah. * 1Ki 14:17; 16:15-18 So 6:4 VERSE 22 - made a proclamation. * 2Ch 16:6 - exempted. Heb. free.

Nadab. * 1Ki 14:12,20 - began to reign. Heb. reigned. VERSE 26 - he did evil. * 1Ki 16:7,25,30 - walked. * 1Ki 12:28-33; 13:33,34 - in his sin. * :30,34; 14:16; 16:19,26; 21:22; 22:52 Ge 20:9 Ex 32:21 * 1Sa 2:24 2Ki 3:3; 21:11; 23:15 Jer 32:35 Ro 14:15 1Co 8:10-13 VERSE 27 - Baasha the son. See on ver. * :16,17; 14:14 - conspired. * 1Ki 16:9 2Ki 12:20 - Gibbethon. * 1Ki 16:15,17 Jos 19:44; 21:23 VERSE 28 * De 32:35 VERSE 29 - he left not. * 1Ki 14:9-16 2Ki 9:7-10,36,37; 10:10,11,31; 19:25 VERSE 30 - the sins. See on ver. * :26; 14:9-16 - by his provocation. * 1Ki 14:22 VERSE 31 - A.M. 3050-3051. B.C. 954-953. are they not written. * 1Ki 14:19; 16:5,14,20,27 VERSE 32 - A.M. 3051-3074. B.C. 953-930. there was war. That is, there was a constant spirit of hostility kept up between the two kingdoms, and no doubt frequent skirmishing between the bordering parties; but there was no open war till Baasha king of Israel began to build Ramah, which was, according to 2 Ch 19 15:19; 1 16:1, in the thirty-sixth year of Asa; but according to ch. 8 16:8, 9, his son was killed by Zimri in the twenty-sixth year of Asa, and consequently he could not make war upon him in the thirty-sixth year of his reign. Chronologers endeavor to reconcile this, by saying that the years should be reckoned, not from the beginning of Asa's reign, but from the separation of the kingdoms of Israel and Judah. We must either adopt this mode of solution, or admit that there is a mistake in some of the numbers, probably in the parallel places in Chronicles, but which we have no direct means of correcting. See on ver. * :16 VERSE 33 - twenty and four years. * 1Ki 16:8 VERSE 34 - he did evil. * :26 - walked. See on ver. * :26; 12:28,29; 13:33,34; 14:16 Isa 1:4 GOTO NEXT CHAPTER - TREASURY OF SCRIPTURE KNOWLEDGE INDEX
