2 Chronicles 11

Peake's Commentary on the BiblePeake's Commentary

Verses 1-23

2 Chronicles 11:1-4 . Shemaiah Restrains Rehoboam from Attacking Jeroboam (see notes on 1 Kings 12:21-24).— The variations between the two records are unimportant.

2 Chronicles 11:5-23 . Rehoboam Establishes himself in Jerusalem.— There is nothing corresponding to this section in 1 K.

2 Chronicles 11:5-12 . Rehoboam’ s cities of defence. Although these are not enumerated in 1 K. there is no reason to doubt that the Chronicler got the list of them from an authentic source.

2 Chronicles 11:13-17 . This account of how the priests and Levites joined Rehoboam was probably inserted by the Chronicler, who would naturally assume that Yahweh’ s ministers would follow Rehoboam as king of Judah.

2 Chronicles 11:18-23 . These details of Rehoboam’ s wives and family probably come from some reliable source; they are not given in 1 K.
