28 Baasha killed Nadab in the third year of Asa king of Judah and succeeded him as king.

Matthew Henry's Commentary on 1 Kings 15:28

Commentary on 1 Kings 15:25-34

(Read 1 Kings 15:25-34)

During the single reign of Asa in Judah, the government of Israel was in six or seven different hands. Observe the ruin of the family of Jeroboam; no word of God shall fall to the ground. Divine threatenings are not designed merely to terrify. Ungodly men execute the just judgments of God upon each other. But in the midst of dreadful sins and this apparent confusion, the Lord carries on his own plan: when it is fully completed, the glorious justice, wisdom, truth, and mercy therein displayed, shall be admired and adored through all the ages of eternity.

The Reign of Baasha

33 In the third year of Asa king of Judah, Baasha son of Ahijah became king of all Israel in Tirzah, and he reigned twenty-four years.
