    Clarke's Commentary on 1 Kings 16:13

    For all the sins of Baasha - We see why it was that God permitted such judgments to fall on this family. Baasha was a grievous offender, and so also was his son Elah; and they caused the people to sin; and they provoked God to anger by their idolatries.

    Barnes' Notes on 1 Kings 16:13

    Their vanities - The "calves." The Hebrews call an idol by terms signifying "emptiness," "vapor," or "nothingness." (Compare marginal references.)

    Wesley's Notes on 1 Kings 16:13

    16:13 Vanities - Idols called vanities; because they are but imaginary deities, and mere nothings; having no power to do either good or hurt.
