1 Kings 15

Chapter 15

15:1  Now in the eighteenth year of king Jeroboam the son of Nebat reigned Abijam over Judah.


Called Abijah, 2 Chronicles 13:1 .

15:14  But the high places were not removed: nevertheless Asa's heart was perfect with the LORD all his days.

high places

Cf. 2 Chronicles 14:3 . It appears that local sacrifices to Jehovah (though not according to the divine order) were offered in the times of the kings upon "high places" (cf) 1 Samuel 9:12 . Apparently Asa's mother had defiled one of these with an idol, 1 Kings 15:13 . Asa destroyed the idol and the idolatrous (but not the Jehovistic) "high places." But see "high places," (See Scofield "1 Kings 3:2") .

15:24  And Asa slept with his fathers, and was buried with his fathers in the city of David his father: and Jehoshaphat his son reigned in his stead.


Called Josaphat, Matthew 1:8 .
