NET © Notes

tn Heb “mother,” but Hebrew often uses “father” and “mother” for grandparents and even more remote ancestors.

tn The Hebrew term גְּבִירָה (gÿvirah) can denote “queen” or “queen mother” depending on the context. Here the latter is indicated, since Maacah was the wife of Rehoboam and mother of Abijah.
