SEV Biblia, Chapter 11:17 Así fortificaron el reino de Judá, y confirmaron a Roboam hijo de Salomón por tres años, porque tres años anduvieron en el camino de David, y de Salomón.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - 2 Chronicles 11:17 Verse 17. For three years they walked in the way of David] During this time he prospered; but for fourteen years after this he and the people were unfaithful to the Lord, except at such intervals as the hand of God's judgments was upon them.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 17. So they strengthened the kingdom of Judah , etc.] Made it more numerous, and in a better condition to defend itself: and made Rehoboam son of Solomon strong three years ; established him on the throne, strengthened the government in his hands, and were the means of preserving him in the pure worship of God for the space of time mentioned, the reason of which follows: for three years they walked in the way of David and Solomon ; in their good ways, which were according to the rule of the divine word; and which, as they refer to the whole of David’s life and reign, some particular actions excepted, so to the former part of Solomon’s reign, before he fell into idolatry, and to the latter part of it after his repentance; for that he did repent is by some concluded from hence, and may be more strongly from the book of Ecclesiastes, written by him in his old age. This is to be understood both of Rehoboam and his people, who after three years forsook the law of the Lord, ( 2 Chronicles 12:1).
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 13-23 - When the priests and Levites came to Jerusalem, the devout, piou Israelites followed them. Such as set their hearts to seek the Lord God of Israel, left the inheritance of their fathers, and went to Jerusalem, that they might have free access to the altar of God, and be out of the temptation to worship the calves. That is best for us, whic is best for our souls; in all our choices, religious advantages must be sought before all outward conveniences. Where God's faithful priest are, his faithful people should be. And when it has been proved that we are willing to renounce our worldly interests, so far as we are calle to do so for the sake of Christ and his gospel, we have good evidenc that we are truly his disciples. And it is the interest of a nation to protect religion and religious people __________________________________________________________________
