John Gill's Exposition of the Whole Bible

And he walked in the way of the house of Ahab, and did evil in the sight of the Lord, as did the house of Ahab,.... Worshipping the calves, and Baal also:

for he was the son in law of the house of Ahab; he was the son of Jehoram, who was son-in-law to Ahab, having married his daughter, which accounts for his being guilty of the same idolatrous practices.

John Trapp Complete Commentary

2 Kings 8:27 And he walked in the way of the house of Ahab, and did evil in the sight of the LORD, as [did] the house of Ahab: for he [was] the son in law of the house of Ahab.

Ver. 27. For he was the son-in-law of the house of Ahab.] His father was so, and himself might be so too by his mother Athaliah’s persuasion. Thus idolatry came to be so deeply rooted and riveted in that family, that it could not be rooted out but by rooting up the corrupted stock, as one hath it.

Whedon's Commentary on the Bible

27.He walked in the way of the house of Ahab — “For,” says 2 Chronicles 22:3, “his mother was his counsellor to do wickedly.” The same wicked woman led both his father and himself into ruin.

He was the son-in-law of the house of Ahab — He, like his father, had married a wife of the daughters of Omri, so that he “was connected with the house of Ahab by a double tie — of mother and wife.” — Wordsworth.
