Bible Commentary for 1 Kings 16:20

Wesley's Notes for 1 Kings 16:20


16:19 For his sins - This befell him for his sins.In walking, &c. - This he might do, either before his reign, in the wholecourse of his life, which is justly charged upon him, because of hisimpenitency: or during his short reign; in which, he had time enough topublish his intentions, about the worship of the calves; or to sacrificeto them, for his good success.

16:21 Were divided - Fell into a civil war: yet neither this, nor anyother of God's dreadful judgments could win them to repentance.

16:22 Prevailed - Partly, because they had the army on their side; andprincipally, by the appointment of God, giving up the Israelites to himwho was much the worst, ver.#25|,26.Died - A violent death, in the battle: but not till after a struggle ofsome years. But why in all these confusions of the kingdom of Israel,did they never think of returning to the house of David?Probably because the kings of Judah assumed a more absolute power thanthe kings of Israel. It was the heaviness of the yoke that theycomplained of, when they first revolted from the house of David.And it is not unlikely, the dread of that made them averse to it ever after.
