SEV Biblia, Chapter 14:23 Â¶ El año quince de Amasías hijo de Joás rey de Judá, comenzó a reinar Jeroboam hijo de Joás sobre Israel en Samaria; y reinó cuarenta y un años.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 23. In the fifteenth year of Amaziah, the son of Joash king of Judah, Jeroboam the son of Joash king of Israel began to reign in Samaria , etc.] So that he reigned fourteen or fifteen years contemporary with him; for Amaziah reigned twenty nine years: [and reigned] forty and one years ; Josephus says forty, giving only the round number.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 23-29 - God raised up the prophet Jonah, and by him declared the purposes of his favour to Israel. It is a sign that God has not cast off his people, if he continues faithful ministers among them. Two reasons ar given why God blessed them with those victories: 1. Because the distress was very great, which made them objects of his compassion. 2 Because the decree was not yet gone forth for their destruction. Man prophets there had been in Israel, but none left prophecies in writin till this age, and their prophecies are part of the Bible. Hosea bega to prophesy in the reign of this Jeroboam. At the same time Amo prophesied; soon after Micah, then Isaiah, in the days of Ahaz an Hezekiah. Thus God, in the darkest and most degenerate ages of the church, raised up some to be burning and shining lights in it; to their own age, by their preaching and living, and a few by their writings, to reflect light upon us in the last times __________________________________________________________________
