Albert Barnes' Notes on the Whole Bible

Unto this day - This expression shows that the writer, who lived during the captivity, and consequently long after the rebellion of Israel had come to an end, is embodying in his history the exact words of an ancient document. His source, whatever it was, appears to have been also followed by the writer of Chronicles. (See 2 Chronicles 10:19.)

John Gill's Exposition of the Whole Bible

So Israel rebelled against the house of David unto this day. In which the writer of this book lived, and so continued until their captivity by the king of Assyria. Their revolt is called a rebellion; for though it was according to the purpose and will of God, yet the people had no command or order from God for it, and was done without consulting him, and was a rejection of their lawful prince.

Wesley's Explanatory Notes

So Israel rebelled against the house of David unto this day.

Rebelled — Their revolt was sinful, as they did not this in compliance with God's counsel, but to gratify their own passions.

John Trapp Complete Commentary

1 Kings 12:19 So Israel rebelled against the house of David unto this day.

Ver. 19. So Israel rebelled.] Rebellion it was in them, and no better: though nothing was therein done, but by the determinate counsel of God, and as he had foretold.

Against the house of David.] Ill accidents ever attend such princes, as being absolute in power, - so they will needs have it, - will be too resolute in will and dissolute in life.

Matthew Poole's English Annotations on the Holy Bible

Their revolt is called rebellion, and therefore was sinful, because it was contrary to God’s authority, and command of subjection to David, and his seed for ever; from which the people were not freed by God’s promise and grant made to Jeroboam, which was but a secret transaction, not yet sufficiently revealed to them, and was not a grant of present and actual possession; but only a promise that God would give it to him in his own time and way, which might have been done, though neither Jeroboam nor the people had used these indirect and evil courses to bring it about, as it befell David upon the same occasion. Besides, the people did not this in compliance with God’s counsel, but to gratify their own passions, and get themselves a little ease.

Joseph Benson's Commentary of the Old and New Testaments

1 Kings 12:19. So Israel rebelled against the house of David — And thereby fulfilled God’s threatening denounced to Solomon. Nevertheless their conduct in this was sinful, as they did not revolt in compliance with God’s counsel, but to gratify their own passions.
