O children of Israel, do not fight against the LORD, the God of your fathers, for you will not succeed.”…

(11) Every morning and every evening.--For the daily sacrifice, see Exodus 29:38-42; for the "sweet incense," or incense of spices, Exodus 30:7.

The shewbread also . . .--Literally, and a pile of bread on the pure table. The construction is uncertain. The words seem to depend loosely on the verb they offer ("they burn") at the beginning of the sentence. But perhaps they should be taken thus: and a pile of bread is on the pure table, and the golden lampstand and its lamps they have to light every evening. (See Exodus 25:30; Exodus 25:37; Leviticus 24:5-7.) The Syriac reads, "and the golden lampstands and their lamps; and the lamp-boy lighteth them every evening." It is noticeable that only one table and one candlestick are mentioned here. (Comp. 2Chronicles 4:7-8; 2Chronicles 4:19.)

The observance of these details of ritual is called "keeping the charge of Jehovah" (see Leviticus 8:35), and neglect of them is "forsaking" Him. (See on 2Chronicles 13:10).

13:1-22 Abijah overcomes Jeroboam. - Jeroboam and his people, by apostacy and idolatry, merited the severe punishment Abijah was permitted to execute upon them. It appears from the character of Abijah, 1Ki 15:3, that he was not himself truly religious, yet he encouraged himself from the religion of his people. It is common for those that deny the power of godliness, to boast of the form of it. Many that have little religion themselves, value it in others. But it was true that there were numbers of pious worshippers in Judah, and that theirs was the more righteous cause. In their distress, when danger was on every side, which way should they look for deliverance unless upward? It is an unspeakable comfort, that our way thither is always open. They cried unto the Lord. Earnest prayer is crying. To the cry of prayer they added the shout of faith, and became more than conquerors. Jeroboam escaped the sword of Abijah, but God struck him; there is no escaping his sword.
