The New John Gill Exposition of the Entire BibleMatthew 1:7
And Solomon begat Roboam…
Called Rehoboam, (1 Kings 11:43)
of Naamah an Ammonitess, (1 Kings 14:21,31) .
And Roboam begat Abia,
sometimes called Abijam, as in (1 Kings 14:31) ,
sometimes Abijah, (2 Chronicles 12:16) and sometimes, as here, Abia,
(1 Chronicles 3:10) . Him Rehoboam begat of Maachah, the daughter of Abishalom,
(1 Kings 15:2) called Michaiah, the daughter of Uriel, (2 Chronicles 13:2) .
Maachah and Michaiah being the same name; or else she went by two
names, as her father did.
And Abia begat Asa,
who was a good king; his mother's name is the
same with the name of his father's mother; and perhaps it is not his
proper mother, but his grandmother who is meant in (1 Kings 15:10) .
He is wrongly called Asaph in the Persic and Ethiopic versions, and
in one copy.
