Wesley's Notes for 1 Kings 15:19


15:17 Built - That is, repaired and fortified.

15:18 Were left - What either Shishak had left, or Abijam, orAsa, or others, both of Israel or Judah had dedicated; whichprobably was not inconsiderable, because Asa had got great spoils fromZerah, #2Chron 14:9 |- 15, and he and his numerous and prosperouspeople, did at this time express a great zeal for the house and worship ofGod. Sent them - Wherein he committed three great faults, amongst manyothers, first, he alienated things consecrated to God, without necessity.Secondly, he did this out of distrust of that God whose power and goodnesshe had lately experienced. Thirdly, he did this for an ill intent, to hirehim to the breach of his league and covenant with Baasha, ver.#19|,and to take away part of that land which by right, and the special gift ofGod, belonged to the Israelites.

15:21 Tirzah - Now the royal city of Israel. There he abode todefend his own kingdoms, and durst not return to oppose Asa, lest theSyrian king should make a second invasion. So Asa met with successin this ungodly course as good men sometimes meet with disappointment ina good cause and course. So there is no judging of causes by events.
