XIV.

(1) So Abijah slept . . . in his stead.--Verbatim as 1Kings 15:8 (Abijam).

In his days the land was quiet ten years.--Mentioned here as a result of Abijah's great victory. "The land was quiet," or "had rest" (Judges 3:11; Judges 5:31). The phrase is explained in 2Chronicles 14:6, "He had no war in those years."

During this period of repose Asa strengthened the defences of his country (2Chronicles 14:5, comp. 2Chronicles 15:19). . . .

Verse 1. - Buried... in the city of David (see our note, 2 Chronicles 12:16). Asa his son. If, according to the suggestion of our note, 2 Chronicles 10:8 and 2 Chron 12:13, the alleged forty-one years of the age of Rehoboam be made twenty-one, it will follow that Asa could not now be more than a boy of some twelve years of age. It is against that suggestion that there is no sign of this, by word or deed, in what is here said of the beginning of Asa's reign; the signs are to the contrary, especially taking into the question the indications given us respecting the tendencies, if not contradicted, of the queen-mother Maachah (2 Chronicles 15:16; 1 Kings 15:13), and it is not supposable that a boy of twelve years of age could contradict them. This point must be held still moot. In his days... quiet ten years. No doubt one cause of this was the defeat that Jeroboam and Israel had sustained at the hands of Abijah (2 Chronicles 13:18-20). It appears also, from 1 Kings 15:19, that after that defeat a league was instituted between Abijah and the then King of Syria: "There is a league between me and thee, and between my father and thy father." And these things, with Israel's new kings, and perhaps Asa's extreme youth, would have favoured the repose of the land.
