Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

2 Chronicles 13:2

_ _ His mother’s name also was Michaiah, the daughter of Uriel — the same as Maachah (see on 1 Kings 15:2). She was “the daughter,” that is, granddaughter of Absalom (1 Kings 15:2; compare 2 Samuel 14:1-33), mother of Abijah, “mother,” that is, grandmother (1 Kings 15:10, Margin) of Asa.

_ _ of Gibeah — probably implies that Uriel was connected with the house of Saul.

_ _ there was war between Abijah and Jeroboam — The occasion of this war is not recorded (see 1 Kings 15:6, 1 Kings 15:7), but it may be inferred from the tenor of Abijah’s address that it arose from his youthful ambition to recover the full hereditary dominion of his ancestors. No prophet now forbade a war with Israel (2 Chronicles 11:23) for Jeroboam had forfeited all claim to protection.
