Context
12:16 Then Rehoboam passed away 1  and was buried in the City of David. 2  His son Abijah replaced him as king.

Abijah’s Reign

13:1 In the eighteenth year of the reign of King Jeroboam, Abijah became king over Judah. 13:2 He ruled for three years in Jerusalem. 3  His mother was Michaiah, the daughter of Uriel from Gibeah. 4 

There was war between Abijah and Jeroboam.

1 tn Heb “lay down with his fathers.”

2 sn The phrase the City of David refers here to the fortress of Zion in Jerusalem, not to Bethlehem. See 2 Sam 5:7.

4 tn The parallel text in 1 Kgs 15:1 identifies his mother as “Maacah, the daughter of Abishalom” [=Absalom, 2 Chr 11:20). Although most English versions identify the mother’s father as Uriel of Gibeah, a number of English versions substitute the name “Maacah” here for the mother (e.g., NIV, NCV, CEV, NLT).
