2 Chronicles 11:21 Parallel
Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

And had ordained him priests for the high places. ויּעמד־לו is a continuation of הזניחם כּי, 2 Chronicles 11:14. בּמות are the places of worship which were erected by Jeroboam for the image-worship, called in 1 Kings 12:31 בּמות בּית; see on that passage. The gods worshipped in these houses in high places the author of the Chronicle calls שׂעירים from their nature, and עגלים from their form. The word שׂעירים is taken from Leviticus 17:7, and signifies demons, so named from the Egyptian idolatry, in which the worship of goats, of Pan (Mendes), who was always represented in the form of a goat, occupied a prominent place; see on Leviticus 17:7. For further details as to the עגלים, see on 1 Kings 12:28.
