Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

1 Kings 16:8

_ _ began Elah the son of Baasha to reign — (compare 1 Kings 15:33). From this it will appear that Baasha died in the twenty-third year of his reign (see on 1 Kings 15:2), and Elah, who was a prince of dissolute habits, reigned not fully two years.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 1 Kings 16:1-14.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

1 Kings 16:8

Two years — One compleat, and part of the other, 1 Kings 16:10.

am 3075, bc 929

In the twenty:
Baasha began to reign in the third year of Asa, and reigned 24 years; yet he died and was succeeded by Elah in the 26th year of Asa; and, in like manner, Elah, who began to reign in the 26th year of Asa, and was killed in the 27th, is said to have reigned two years. Thus it is evident that a part of a year is calculated as a whole year. In the Chinese annals, the whole year in which a king dies is ascribed to his reign, the years of the succeeding king being reckoned only from the beginning of the following year.
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.
