(20) Neither did Jeroboam recover strength.--And Jeroboam retained strength no longer. LXX. ??? ??? ????? ????? ???????? ???. See 1Chronicles 29:14 (the same phrase).

And the Lord struck him, and he died.--All that is known of Jeroboam's death is that it took place two years after that of Abijah (1Kings 15:8-9). The expressions of the text cannot mean, as Z?ckler suggests, "visited him with misfortune till his death." His death is regarded as a judicial visitation (compare the use of the same Hebrew phrase, 1Samuel 25:38). The verse, then, states that during the rest of Abijah's reign Jeroboam remained powerless to injure his neighbour; and that the circumstances of his death were such that men recognised in them "the finger of God." It is not likely that the reference is to the event of 2Chronicles 13:15 (Bertheau), nor to the death of his son (1Kings 14:1-8), as Keil supposes. . . .

Verse 20. - The Lord struck him; and he died. The writer of Chronicles here, for brevity's sake, and not to recur to his name again, records the death of Jeroboam, which, however, did not happen till after Abijah's death, in the second year of Asa's reign (1 Kings 14:20; 1 Kings 15:25). That the Lord struck him, may glance at the fearful announcement conveyed to him through his wife by Ahijah (1 Kings 14:6-16).
