John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
1 Kings 15:22

Then King Asa made a proclamation throughout all Judah
Summoned men of all sorts, ranks, and degrees:

(none was exempted;)
the Jews F26 say, not so much as a newly married man, whom the law excused from war the first year, nor the disciples of the wise men:

and they took away the stones of Ramah, and the timber thereof,
wherewith Baasha had builded;
or fortified the place; these; the men of Judah, whom Asa summoned, carried off:

and King Asa built with them Geba of Benjamin, and Mizpah;
which were both in the tribe of Benjamin, and which he fortified, ( Joshua 18:24 Joshua 18:26 ) ( Jeremiah 41:10 ) .
