Bible Commentary for 1 Kings 14:20

Wesley's Notes for 1 Kings 14:20


14:18 Mourned - And justly: not only for the loss of an hopeful prince,but because his death plucked up the floodgates, at which an inundation ofjudgments broke in.

14:19 The chronicles - not that canonical book of chronicles; for thatwas written long after this book: but a book of civil records, the annals,wherein all remarkable passages were recorded by the king's command fromday to day; out of which the sacred penman by the direction of God'sspirit, took those passages which were most useful for God's honour, andmens edification.

14:21 Forty one years - Therefore he was born a year before Solomonwas king, as appears from chap.#11:42|, this is noted as an aggravationof Rehoboam's folly, that he was old enough to have been wiser.An Ammonitess - A people cursed by God, and shut out of the congregationof his people for ever. This is observed as one cause both of God'sdispleasure in punishing Solomon with such a son, and of Rehoboam'sapostacy after his three first years, #2Chron 11:17|. None can imaginehow fatal and how lasting are the consequence of being unequally yoked withan unbeliever.

14:22 In the sight of the Lord - In contempt and defiance of him, andthe tokens of his special presence. Jealousy - As the adulterous wifeprovokes her husband, by breaking the marriage covenant.
