Scofield's Reference NotesScofield's Notes

Verse 1


Called Abijah, 2 Chronicles 13:1.

Verse 14

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 15:13- :") .

Verse 24


Called Josaphat, Matthew 1:8.
