SEV Biblia, Chapter 15:21 Y oyendo esto Baasa, dejó de edificar a Ramá, y se estuvo en Tirsa.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Kings 15:21 Verse 21. Dwelt in Tirzah.] This seems to have been the royal city; see ver. 33, and chap. xiv. 17; and in this Baasha was probably obliged to shut himself up.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 21. And it came to pass, when Baasha heard thereof , etc.] What was doing in the northern part of his kingdom: that he left off building of Ramah ; which was the thing designed to be answered by this diversion: and dwelt in Tirzah ; in the tribe of Manasseh, nearer at hand, to observe and stop the motions of the Syrian king.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 9-24 - Asa did what was right in the eyes of the Lord. That is right indee which is so in God's eyes. Asa's times were times of reformation. He removed that which was evil; there reformation begins, and a great dea he found to do. When Asa found idolatry in the court, he rooted it ou thence. Reformation must begin at home. Asa honours and respects his mother; he loves her well, but he loves God better. Those that have power are happy when thus they have hearts to use it well. We must no only cease to do evil, but learn to do well; not only cast away the idols of our iniquity, but dedicate ourselves and our all to God' honour and glory. Asa was cordially devoted to the service of God, his sins not arising from presumption. But his league with Benhadad aros from unbelief. Even true believers find it hard, in times of urgen danger, to trust in the Lord with all their heart. Unbelief makes wa for carnal policy, and thus for one sin after another. Unbelief ha often led Christians to call in the help of the Lord's enemies in their contests with their brethren; and some who once shone brightly, have thus been covered with a dark cloud towards the end of their days.
