Moreover the Lord shall raise up a king over
Baasha is meant, ( 1 Kings 15:29 )
who shall cut off the house of Jeroboam that
immediately, as soon as on the throne, he should destroy his whole family, as he did, ( 1 Kings 15:29 ) ,
but what? even now;
shall it be that day? yes; even at that very time, and which will be very quickly from this time; for as it may be supposed this was said at the latter end of Jeroboam's reign, and his son and successor reigned but two years ere this prophecy was accomplished. The Targum is,
``who shall cut off the house of Jeroboam, him that is living today, and shall be from henceforward.''
