Albert Barnes' Notes on the Whole Bible

The “might” of Baasha is sufficiently indicated by those successes which drove Asa to call Ben-hadad to his aid. 1 Kings 15:17-21.

Coffman Commentaries on the Bible

A SUMMARY OF THE REIGN OF BAASHA

"Now the rest of the acts of Baasha, and what he did, are they not written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Israel? And Baasha slept with his fathers, and was buried in Tirzah; and Elah his son reigned in his stead. And moreover by the prophet Jehu the son of Hanani came the word of Jehovah against Baasha, and against his house, both because of the evil that he did in the sight of Jehovah, to provoke him to anger with the work of his hands, in being like the house of Jeroboam, and because he smote him."

"And because he smote him" (1 Kings 16:7). "The very fact that Baasha continued Jeroboam's sin and caused the illegal worship to be perpetuated, showed clearly enough that in his exterminating the family of Jeroboam he did not act under Divine direction, but simply pursued his own selfish ends."[6]
