Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

2 Chronicles 13:4-12

_ _ Abijah stood up upon Mount Zemaraim — He had entered the enemy’s territory and was encamped on an eminence near Beth-el (Joshua 18:22). Jeroboam’s army lay at the foot of the hill, and as a pitched battle was expected, Abijah, according to the singular usage of ancient times, harangued the enemy. The speakers in such circumstances, while always extolling their own merits, poured out torrents of invective and virulent abuse upon the adversary. So did Abijah. He dwelt on the divine right of the house of David to the throne; and sinking all reference to the heaven-condemned offenses of Solomon and the divine appointment of Jeroboam, as well as the divine sanction of the separation, he upbraided Jeroboam as a usurper, and his subjects as rebels, who took advantage of the youth and inexperience of Rehoboam. Then contrasting the religious state of the two kingdoms, he drew a black picture of the impious innovations and gross idolatry introduced by Jeroboam, with his expulsion and impoverishment (2 Chronicles 11:14) of the Levites. He dwelt with reasonable pride on the pure and regular observance of the ancient institutions of Moses in his own dominion [2 Chronicles 13:11] and concluded with this emphatic appeal: “O children of Israel, fight ye not against Jehovah, the God of your fathers, for ye shall not prosper.”
