    Clarke's Commentary on 2 Chronicles 11:20

    Maachah the daughter of Absalom - See the note on 1 Kings 15:10. She is called Michaiah, the daughter of Uriel, 2 Chronicles 13:2. For this the Targum gives the following reason: "Abijah reigned three years in Jerusalem; and his mother's name was Michaiah, daughter of Uriel of Gibeatha. She is the same as Michah, the daughter of Absalom; but, because she was an upright woman, her name was changed into the more excellent name Michaiah, and her fathers name into that of Uriel of Gibeatha, that the name of Absalom might not be remembered.

    Barnes' Notes on 2 Chronicles 11:20

    Maachah the daughter of Absalom - Rather, "grand-daughter" (see the 1 Kings 15:2 note).
