2 Chr 10:15

10:15 by God that the Lord might fulfill his word. The author points out that Rehoboam’s reaction must be seen in the light of God’s sovereign purposes. Ahijah’s prophecy concerning Jeroboam (1 Kin. 11:29–39) was fulfilled by this turn of events. Divine sovereignty extends over the sinful actions of human beings (1 Chr. 21:1 note).
