      This the Vulgate understands of Jehu the prophet; some think
      Baasha is intended; others Nadab the son of Jeroboam; and
      others Jeroboam, whom Baasha destroyed in his posterity by
      cruelly murdering them all.
    
       * 1Ki 14:14; 15:27-29 2Ki 10:30,31 Isa 10:6,7 Ho 1:4 Ac 2:23; 4:27,28
    
    
    VERSE 8 
     - A.M. 3075.  B.C. 929.  In the twenty.
      Baasha began to reign in the third year of Asa, and reigned 24
      years; yet he died and was succeeded by Elah in the 26th year
      of Asa; and, in like manner, Elah, who began to reign in the
      26th year of Asa, and was killed in the 27th, is said to have
      reigned two years.  Thus it is evident that a part of a year
      is calculated as a whole year.  In the Chinese annals, the
      whole year in which a king dies is ascribed to his reign, the
      years of the succeeding king being reckoned only from the
      beginning of the following year.

    VERSE 23 
     - A.M. 3079-3086.  B.C. 925-918.  the thirty.
      As it is stated in verses 10 and 15, that Zimri began to reign
      in the 27th year of Asa; and as he reigned only seven days,
      and Omri immediately succeeded him, this could not be the
      31st, but in the 27th year of Asa.  Jarchi, from Sedar Olam,
      reconciles this, by stating that Tibni and Omri began to reign
      jointly in the 27th year of Asa; and that Tibni dying about
      five years afterwards, Omri began to reign alone in the 31st
      year of Asa.

    - Samaria.  Heb. Shomeron.
      Samaria was situated on a agreeable and fertile hill in the
      tribe of Ephraim, twelve miles from Dothaim and four from
      Atharoth, according to Eusebius, and one day's journey from
      Jerusalem, according to Josephus.
