1 Kings 14:18 Parallel
Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

After this announcement of the judgment upon the house of Jeroboam, Ahijah gave the wife information concerning her sick son. He would die as soon as she entered the city, and of all the male members of the house of Jeroboam he only would receive the honour of a proper burial, because in him there was some good thing towards Jehovah found. Ewald (247, b.) regards the form בּבאה as standing for בּבאהּ, and refers the suffix to the following word העיר (vid., Ewald, 309, c.). But as this use of the suffix would be very harsh, the question arises whether בּאה is not to be regarded as a feminine form of the infinitive, after the analogy of דּעה in Exodus 2:4 and לדה in 2 Kings 19:3, etc. From the fulfilment of this declaration in 1 Kings 14:17, 1 Kings 14:18 Jeroboam was to learn that the threatened destruction of his royal house would also be just as certainly fulfilled. The sick son appears to have been the heir-presumptive to the throne. This may be inferred partly from the lamentation of all Israel at his death (1 Kings 14:18), and partly from what follows here in the next verse. אליהוה means in his relation to Jehovah.
