1 Kings 15:6 Parallel
Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

Death and burial of Rehoboam: as in the case of Solomon (1 Kings 11:43). The name of the queen-mother has already been given in 1 Kings 14:21, and the repetition of it here may be explained on the supposition that in the original sources employed by the author of our books it stood in this position. The son and successor of Rehoboam upon the throne is called Abijam (אביּם) in the account before us; whereas in the Chronicles he is always called Abijah (אביּה, 2 Chronicles 12:16; 2 Chronicles 13:1, etc., or אביּהוּ, 2 Chronicles 13:21). אביּם, i.e., father of the sea, is unquestionably the older form of the name, which was reduced to אביּה, and then identified with the formation from אבי and יה equals יהוּ (from יהוה).
