Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

1 Kings 16:23

_ _ 1 Kings 16:23-28. Omri builds Samaria.

_ _ In the thirty and first year of Asa ... began Omri to reign — The twelve years of his reign are computed from the beginning of his reign, which was in the twenty-seventh year of Asa’s reign. He held a contested reign for four years with Tibni; and then, at the date stated in this verse, entered on a sole and peaceful reign of eight years.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 1 Kings 16:15-28.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

1 Kings 16:23

Twelve years — That is, and he reigned twelve years, not from this thirty — first year of Asa, for he died in his thirty — eighth year, 1 Kings 16:29, but from the beginning of his reign, which was in Asa's twenty — seventh year, 1 Kings 16:15-16. So he reigned four years in a state of war with Tibni, and eight years peaceably.

the thirty:
As it is stated in
1 Kings 16:10 And Zimri went in and smote him, and killed him, in the twenty and seventh year of Asa king of Judah, and reigned in his stead.
and
1 Kings 16:15 In the twenty and seventh year of Asa king of Judah did Zimri reign seven days in Tirzah. And the people [were] encamped against Gibbethon, which [belonged] to the Philistines.
, that Zimri began to reign in the 27th year of Asa; and as he reigned only seven days, and Omri immediately succeeded him, this could not be the 31st, but in the 27th year of Asa. Jarchi, from Sedar Olam, reconciles this, by stating that Tibni and Omri began to reign jointly in the 27th year of Asa; and that Tibni dying about five years afterwards, Omri began to reign alone in the 31st year of Asa.
2 Chronicles 22:2 Forty and two years old [was] Ahaziah when he began to reign, and he reigned one year in Jerusalem. His mother's name also [was] Athaliah the daughter of Omri.

twelve years:

1 Kings 16:8 In the twenty and sixth year of Asa king of Judah began Elah the son of Baasha to reign over Israel in Tirzah, two years.
1 Kings 16:29 And in the thirty and eighth year of Asa king of Judah began Ahab the son of Omri to reign over Israel: and Ahab the son of Omri reigned over Israel in Samaria twenty and two years.
