THE HOLY BIBLE Douay-Rheims

Notes on Third Book of Kings (Author Bishop Richard Challoner (ed.))

15:14 The high places: There were excelsa or high places of two different kinds. Some were set up, and dedicated to the worship of idols, or strange gods; and these Asa removed, 2 Par. 14.2; others were only altars of the true God, but were erected contrary to the law, which allowed of no sacrifices but in the temple; and these were not removed by Asa.--Ibid. Perfect with the Lord. . .Asa had his faults; but never forsook the worship of the Lord.
