Treasury of Scripture

But Omri worked evil in the eyes of the LORD, and did worse than all that were before him.

did worse

1 Kings 16:30,31,33
And Ahab the son of Omri did evil in the sight of the LORD above all that were before him…

1 Kings 14:9
But hast done evil above all that were before thee: for thou hast gone and made thee other gods, and molten images, to provoke me to anger, and hast cast me behind thy back:

Micah 6:16
For the statutes of Omri are kept, and all the works of the house of Ahab, and ye walk in their counsels; that I should make thee a desolation, and the inhabitants thereof an hissing: therefore ye shall bear the reproach of my people.









(25) Did worse than all that were before him.--This phrase, used of Jeroboam in 1Kings 14:9, may indicate, in addition to the acceptance and development of the old idolatry, some anticipation of the worse idolatry of Baal, formally introduced by Ahab. The "statutes of Omri" are referred to by Micah (Micah 6:16) in parallelism with the "works of the house of Ahab," as the symbol of hardened and hopeless apostasy.

Verse 25. - But Omri wrought evil in the eyes of the Lord, and did worse than all that were before him. [It has been thought that Micah 6:16 ("the statutes of Omri, etc.") points to a fresh departure from the Jewish faith; to the organization of the calf worship into a regular formal system, or to "measures for more competely isolating the people of Israel from the services of the house of the Lord at Jerusalem" (Kitto).
