Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

1 Kings 14:17

_ _ Tirzah — a place of pre-eminent beauty (Song of Songs 6:4), three hours’ travelling east of Samaria, chosen when Israel became a separate kingdom, by the first monarch, and used during three short reigns as a residence of the royal house. The fertile plains and wooded hills in that part of the territory of Ephraim gave an opening to the formation of parks and pleasure-grounds similar to those which were the “paradises” of Assyrian and Persian monarchs [Stanley]. Its site is occupied by the large village of Taltise [Robinson]. As soon as the queen reached the gate of the palace, she received the intelligence that her son was dying, according to the prophet’s prediction [1 Kings 14:12].

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 1 Kings 14:7-20.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

1 Kings 14:17

Tirzah — An ancient and royal city, in a pleasant place, where the kings of Israel had a palace, whither Jeroboam was now removed from Shechem, either for his pleasure, or for his son's recovery, by the healthfulness of the place. The threshold — Of the king's house, which probably was upon, or by the wall of the city, and near the gate.
