(39) The ivory house.--See Amos 3:15. We note that now, for the first time since the days of Solomon (1Kings 10:18-20), the use of ivory--in this case for inlaying the walls of houses--so characteristic of Zidonian art, is mentioned. The "undesigned coincidence," in relation to the renewed intercourse with Zidon, is remarkable.

All the cities . . .--Possibly the cities ceded by Ben-hadad, and rebuilt as strongholds. The description shows that Ahab's reign was externally one of power and prosperity, as yet unimpaired even by his death and disaster at Ramoth-gilead. The fruits of spiritual corruption had not yet ripened.

Verse 39. - Now the rest of the acts of Ahab, and all that he did, and the ivory house which he made [So called because it was adorned with ivory. See on ch. 11; and cf. Amos 3:15; Psalm 45:8; Song of Solomon 7:5. Rawlinson cites several passages from Greek and Latin authors to prove that ivory was anciently applied, not only to furniture, but to the doors and walls of houses], and an the cities that he built [Probably Jezreel was one, but we have no information concerning them. The fact that he did build cities, however, is one proof of Ahab's enterprize. He was not weak in all particulars], are they not written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Israel?
