Treasury of Scripture

a league

2 Chronicles 18:3
And Ahab king of Israel said unto Jehoshaphat king of Judah, Wilt thou go with me to Ramothgilead? And he answered him, I am as thou art, and my people as thy people; and we will be with thee in the war.

2 Chronicles 19:2

Judges 2:2
And ye shall make no league with the inhabitants of this land; ye shall throw down their altars: but ye have not obeyed my voice: why have ye done this?

break

Genesis 20:9,10
Then Abimelech called Abraham, and said unto him, What hast thou done unto us? and what have I offended thee, that thou hast brought on me and on my kingdom a great sin? thou hast done deeds unto me that ought not to be done…

Exodus 32:21
And Moses said unto Aaron, What did this people unto thee, that thou hast brought so great a sin upon them?

Joshua 9:19,20
But all the princes said unto all the congregation, We have sworn unto them by the LORD God of Israel: now therefore we may not touch them…









(3) There is a league.--B?rith, "covenant." The verse is the same as 1Kings 15:19, omitting the word "a present" before "silver and gold," and making two or three other minute verbal changes.

As.--And.

Depart.--Go up. See the Notes on Kings.

Verse 3. - The alliance of the King of Syria was sought now by one kingdom, now by the other. On what occasion Abijah made league with the king, the history does not say, either here or in the parallel, nor when he or his son resigned it. For there is, read "Let there be a league between me and thee, as between my father and thy father;" the short cut which Area thought to take now to his object was not the safe nor right one.
