1 Kings 15:9 Parallel
Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

Abijam walked as king in the footsteps of his father. Although he made presents to the temple (1 Kings 15:15), his heart was not שׁלם, wholly or undividedly given to the Lord, like the heart of David (cf., 1 Kings 11:4); but (כּי, after a previous negative) for David's sake Jehovah had left him a light in Jerusalem, to set up his son after him and to let Jerusalem stand, because (אשׁר) David had done right in the eyes of God, etc., i.e., so that it was only for David's sake that Jehovah did not reject him, and allowed the throne to pass to his son. For the fact itself compare 1 Kings 11:13, 1 Kings 11:36; and for the words, "except in the matter of Uriah the Hittite," see 2 Samuel 11 and 12.
