came up against Judah

2 Chronicles 16:1

16:1 came up against Judah. There is an apparent problem with dates here. Baasha is said to have begun his reign in Israel in the third year of Asa’s reign in Judah and then to have his reign ended in the twenty-sixth year of Asa (I Kings 15:28; 16:8). Yet this verse says that Baasha came up against Judah in the thirty-sixth year of Asa, seemingly nine years after his own death. Other than a possible copyist error here, it has been suggested that the intent of the statement was “the thirty-sixth year of the divided kingdom, now under Asa.”
