Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

1 Kings 15:10-13

_ _ his mother’s name was Maachah — She was properly his grandmother, and she is here called “the king’s mother,” from the post of dignity which at the beginning of his reign she possessed. Asa, as a constitutional monarch, acted like the pious David, laboring to abolish the traces and polluting practices of idolatry, and in pursuance of his impartial conduct, he did not spare delinquents even of the highest rank.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 1 Kings 15:9-24.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

1 Kings 15:10

Mother's — That is, his grandmother's, as appears from 1 Kings 15:2, who is called his mother, as David is called Abijam's father, 1 Kings 15:3. And his grand — mother's name may be here mentioned, rather than his mother's, because his mother was either an obscure person, or was dead, or unwilling to take care of the education of her son, and so he was educated by the grand — mother, who, though she poisoned his father Abijam with her idolatrous principles, 1 Kings 15:12, yet could not infect Asa, nor withhold him from prosecuting his good purposes of reforming religion.
