1 Kings 14:6 Parallel
Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

"And it became in (with) this thing the sin of the house of Jeroboam, and the destroying and cutting off from the earth;" that is to say, this obstinate persistence in ungodly conduct was the guilt which had as its natural consequence the destroying of his house from the face of the earth. הזּה בּדּבר is not a mistake for הזּה הדּבר, but בּ is used, as in 1 Chronicles 9:33; 1 Chronicles 7:23, to express the idea of being and persisting in a thing (for this use of בּ compare Ewald, 295, f.).
