Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

2 Kings 15:23

_ _ Pekahiah ... son of Menahem began to reign — On comparing the date given with Azariah’s reign, it seems that several months had intervened between the death of Menahem and the accession of Pekahiah, probably owing to a contest about the throne.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 2 Kings 15:8-31.
