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. 14:30, and a repetition which interrupts the history of Abijah: (see 2 Ch 13:3, etc.) 14:30 the rest.14:29; 2Ch 13:2,21,22there was war.2Ch 13:3-20 A.M. 3049.

Baasha.27; 2Ch 16:1-6Ramah.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 31:15he might not suffer.12:27; 2Ch 11:13-17 Asa.15; 14:26; 2Ki 12:18; 18:15,16; 2Ch 15:18; 16:2-6Ben-hadad.20:1-5,33,34; 2Ki 8:7-15Damascus.11:23,24; Ge 14:15; 15:2; Jer 49:27; Am 1:4 There is a league.2Ch 19:2; Isa 31:1break thy league.2Sa 21:2; 2Ch 16:3; Eze 17:13-16; Ro 1:31; 3:8depart.

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 15:19; 16:1, in the thirty-sixth year of Asa; but according to ch. 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 endeavour 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. 16 twenty and four years.16:8 he did evil.26walked.26; 12:28,29; 13:33,34; 14:16; Isa 1:4
