John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
2 Chronicles 13:8

And now ye think to withstand the kingdom of the Lord in the
hand of the sons of David
To oppose them, prevail over them, and get it out of their hands, which is delivered to them by the Lord, as the Targum:

and ye be a great multitude;
of which they boasted, and in which they trusted, being ten tribes to two, and in this army two to one:

and [there are] with you golden calves which Jeroboam made you for
gods;
or, "but F18 there are with you" which Abijah suggests would be so far from helping them, that they would be their ruin, they having, by the worship of them, provoked the Lord against them.
