Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

See commentary on 2 Chronicles 16:1-6.


2 Chronicles 16:4

_ _ Ben-hadad ... sent the captains of his armies ... and they smote ... Abelmaim — “The meadow of waters,” supposed to have been situated on the marshy plain near the uppermost lake of the Jordan. The other two towns were also in the northern district of Palestine. These unexpected hostilities of his Syrian ally interrupted Baasha’s fortifications at Ramah, and his death, happening soon after, prevented his resuming them.
