Wesley's Notes for 1 Kings 15:28


15:28 Even, &c. - It was threatened, chap.#14:15|,that Israel should be as a reed shaken in the water. And so theywere, when, during the single reign of Asa, their government was inseven or eight different hands. Jeroboam was upon the throne at thebeginning of his reign, and Ahab at the end of it: between whom wereNadab, Baashah, Elah, Zimri, Tibni, and Omri, undermining anddestroying one another. This they got by deserting the house both of Godand of David.
