1 Kings 15

1 Now in the eighteenth year of king Jeroboam the son of Nebat reigned Abijam over Judah.

Three years reigned he in Jerusalem. and his mother’s name was Maachah, the daughter of Abishalom.

And he walked in all the sins of his father, which he had done before him: and his heart was not perfect with theLord his God, as the heart of David his father.

Nevertheless for David’s sake did the Lord his God give him a lamp in Jerusalem, to set up his son after him, and to establish Jerusalem:

Because David did that which was right in the eyes of theLord, and turned not aside from any thing that he commanded him all the days of his life, save only in the matter of Uriah the Hittite.

And there was war between Rehoboam and Jeroboam all the days of his life.

Now the rest of the acts of Abijam, and all that he did, are they not written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Judah? And there was war between Abijam and Jeroboam.

And Abijam slept with his fathers; and they buried him in the city of David: and Asa his son reigned in his stead.

And in the twentieth year of Jeroboam king of Israel reigned Asa over Judah.

10 And forty and one years reigned he in Jerusalem. And his mother’s name was Maachah, the daughter of Abishalom.

11 And Asa did that which was right in the eyes of the Lord, as did David his father.

12 And he took away the sodomites out of the land, and removed all the idols that his fathers had made.

13 And also Maachah his mother, even her he removed from being queen, because she had made an idol in a grove; and Asa destroyed her idol, and burnt it by the brook Kidron.

14 But the high places were not removed: nevertheless Asa’s heart was perfect with the Lord all his days.

15 And he brought in the things which his father had dedicated, and the things which himself had dedicated, into the house of the Lord, silver, and gold, and vessels.

16 And there was war between Asa and Baasha king of Israel all their days.

17 And Baasha king of Israel went up against Judah, and built Ramah, that he might not suffer any to go out or come in to Asa king of Judah.

18 Then Asa took all the silver and the gold that were left in the treasures of the house of the Lord, and the treasures of the king’s house, and delivered them into the hand of his servants: and king Asa sent them to Benhadad, the son of Tabrimon, the son of Hezion, king of Syria, that dwelt at Damascus, saying,

19 There is a league between me and thee, and between my father and thy father: behold, I have sent unto thee a present of silver and gold; come and break thy league with Baasha king of Israel, that he may depart from me.

20 So Benhadad hearkened unto king Asa, and sent the captains of the hosts which he had against the cities of Israel, and smote Ijon, and Dan, and Abelbethmaachah, and all Cinneroth, with all the land of Naphtali.

21 And it came to pass, when Baasha heard thereof, that he left off building of Ramah, and dwelt in Tirzah.

22 Then king Asa made a proclamation throughout all Judah; none was exempted: and they took away the stones of Ramah, and the timber thereof, wherewith Baasha had builded; and king Asa built with them Geba of Benjamin, and Mizpah.

23 The rest of all the acts of Asa, and all his might, and all that he did, and the cities which he built, are they not written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Judah? Nevertheless in the time of his old age he was diseased in his feet.

24 And Asa slept with his fathers, and was buried with his fathers in the city of David his father: and Jehoshaphat his son reigned in his stead.

25 And Nadab the son of Jeroboam began to reign over Israel in the second year of Asa king of Judah, and reigned over Israel two years.

26 And he did evil in the sight of the Lord, and walked in the way of his father, and in his sin wherewith he made Israel to sin.

27 And Baasha the son of Ahijah, of the house of Issachar, conspired against him; and Baasha smote him at Gibbethon, which belonged to the Philistines; for Nadab and all Israel laid siege to Gibbethon.

28 Even in the third year of Asa king of Judah did Baasha slay him, and reigned in his stead.

29 And it came to pass, when he reigned, that he smote all the house of Jeroboam; he left not to Jeroboam any that breathed, until he had destroyed him, according unto the saying of the Lord, which he spake by his servant Ahijah the Shilonite:

30 Because of the sins of Jeroboam which he sinned, and which he made Israel sin, by his provocation wherewith he provoked the Lord God of Israel to anger.

31 Now the rest of the acts of Nadab, and all that he did, are they not written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Israel?

32 And there was war between Asa and Baasha king of Israel all their days.

33 In the third year of Asa king of Judah began Baasha the son of Ahijah to reign over all Israel in Tirzah, twenty and four years.

34 And he did evil in the sight of the Lord, and walked in the way of Jeroboam, and in his sin wherewith he made Israel to sin.

    Be careful where you lead your people to…. Leadership is hard but one thing I did learned you can please all the people all the time so don’t waste your time & energy on that. That is the way that you get lost, pleasing people, if you focus in only pleasing God and doing things His way, those that are not pleased will continue to criticize you and eventually leave you. Believe me is that is the case you are better of without them. On the other hand, those that are pleased by your service to God, they will make an alliance with you that is closer than a brother, they will stick around through thick and thin. Just make sure you do everything to please God and not people. A leader has a lot of responsibilities but a Spiritual Leader carries the load of the souls upon his back. Lets lift them up in prayer so they are cover through out all adversities.

    Refuse to let anyone stand in your way

    11 And Asa did that which was right in the eyes of the Lord, as did David his father.

    12 And he took away the sodomites out of the land, and removed all the idols that his fathers had made.

    13 And also Maachah his mother, even her he removed from being queen, because she had made an idol in a grove; and Asa destroyed her idol, and burnt it by the brook Kidron.

    Finally we have a man stand up and do right…

    If any man come to me, and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple. (Luke 14:26 KJV)

  3. I pray that I can keep my life clean before the Lord so no one will sin because of my sins. God help me to keep the Gospel close to my heart and pure before You.

    • 1 CORINTHIANS 8:13-
      WHEREFORE IF MEAT MAKE MY BROTHER TO OFFEND I WILL EAT NO FLESH WHILE THE WORLD STANDETH LEST I MAKE MY BROTHER TO OFFEND

  4. 11 And Asa did that which was right in the eyes of the Lord, as did David his father.

    12 And he took away the sodomites out of the land, and removed all the idols that his fathers had made.

    13 And also Maachah his mother, even her he removed from being queen, because she had made an idol in a grove; and Asa destroyed her idol, and burnt it by the brook Kidron.

    14 But the high places were not removed: nevertheless Asa’s heart was perfect with the Lord all his days. Moving in the right direction, cleaning house is very important! Thank you Jesus for your word, for the blood, and for the Holy Spirit!

  5. Then, as now more leaders do evil than good in the eyes of the Lord. Wo unto us as leaders in the home and church if it is said of us that we have done evil in the eyes of the Lord.

  6. In this chapter verses 4-5 NIV, we still see the blessings upon David’s family because of his obedience to God. “Nevertheless, for David’s sake the Lord his God gave him a lamp in Jerusalem by raising up a son to succeed him and by making Jerusalem strong. 5 For David had done what was right in the eyes of the Lord and had not failed to keep any of the Lord’s commands all the days of his life—except in the case of Uriah the Hittite.”

    We also see how the sins of Jeroboam cost his family their lives in verses 29-30 NIV. “As soon as he began to reign, he killed Jeroboam’s whole family. He did not leave Jeroboam anyone that breathed, but destroyed them all, according to the word of the Lord given through his servant Ahijah the Shilonite. 30 This happened because of the sins Jeroboam had committed and had caused Israel to commit, and because he aroused the anger of the Lord, the God of Israel.”

    We cannot be fooled or deny that our actions not only affect our own lives; but, will and can pave the road for future generations.

  7. “…did that which was right in the eyes of the Lord…” “…did evil in the sight of the Lord…” How will our lives be recorded? There are no instances of he was a good mad, but… The bible simply states good or bad. It has been said many times, there are no “little” sins or “white” lies. There is sin. Lord, help me to continue to choose the straight and narrow and stay within your graces and blessings that my record might state, Bryan Linton did that which was right in the eyes of the Lord.

  8. This chapter illustrates example. David’s leadership example affected many generations; “Nevertheless for David’s sake did the Lord his God give him a lamp in Jerusalem, to set up his son after him, and to establish Jerusalem”. Each king’s leadership example thereafter was also crucial; “And he did evil in the sight of the Lord, and walked in the way of his father, and in his sin wherewith he made Israel to sin.” Although we may not be kings everyone is definitely and example to someone, why would one therefore think our example would cause any other outcome. Is this not therefore all the more reason one should be a good example and serve the one and only true God, Jesus. May the good Lord Bless you all in Jesus name, Amen

  9. Be careful who you are following and who you are letting lead you. What do and say affects other people as well as ourselves. You never know who is watching you and following you. Let’s be an example for our Father’s Business

  10. Be careful who you listen to and follow.The devil uses people to tell you it’s greener on the other side or if you go over here you won’t have to do some of the things that are required of us as christians,don’t be decieved by the devil and live for God with your whole heart !!

  11. In this scripture, you can see that the apple didn’t fall far from the tree. But, in this case it is a good thing, with King Asa. He sort of speak cleaned house, removed Idols, and established order. He also went against Royal Protical or Family Protical, when removing the Queen/Mother. He didn’t do what was so popular, or to please the crowd, but pleased his God. But, just like his Father David, maintained a clean heart and did what was right before sight of the Lord.

    My question is are any of us doing what is always right in the sight of the Lord? I’m preaching to myself as well…..and how did they keep this type of committment or fervancy. By being constant, steadfast, and dedicated to Christ Jesus, and the power of the Holy Spirit and the Grace of God. Staying committed no matter what, even when times are tough.

    See you can question yourself, and you can even get the answer too. Wow, God is great……but it took “COURAGE”….”Be Courageous”…

    11 And Asa did that which was right in the eyes of the Lord, as did David his father.

    12 And he took away the sodomites out of the land, and removed all the idols that his fathers had made.

    13 And also Maachah his mother, even her he removed from being queen, because she had made an idol in a grove; and Asa destroyed her idol, and burnt it by the brook Kidron.

    14 But the high places were not removed: nevertheless Asa’s heart was perfect with the Lord all his days.

    “Be Church…Be Courageous”….iwork…iwork…iwork….itired…imissu….

  12. 11 And Asa did that which was right in the eyes of the Lord, as did David his father.

    12 And he took away the sodomites out of the land, and removed all the idols that his fathers had made.

    13 And also Maachah his mother, even her he removed from being queen, because she had made an idol in a grove; and Asa destroyed her idol, and burnt it by the brook Kidron.

    When Asa took his place on the throne he began the process of repentance for the people of Isreal, turning away from the things that had been allowed and doing away with the other gods they had put before the Lord.

    His integrity with the Lord is evident when he even had to deal with his own mother the queen and remove her from her position because of her idol worship. This is a great principle that we cannot allow sin to rule, even if it is with family that we must deal with it. We must follow the commandment of the Lord. This reminds me of the scripture Matthew 10:37 ” He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me.”

    Sometimes are decisions to follow the Lord and remove the idols that we have allowed into our homes is not popular, but we are not here to please anyone else but the Lord. Life here is short, Eternity is forever.

  13. If we can gain anything from this chapter it would be the purpose of good leadership in our lives. We must follow the leading of the Lord and allow Him to give us a pastor and set up the leadership needed in our lives.

    All leaders are equiped with influence we must make sure that influence is Godly. when you are in a postition of leadership and your influence on others cause them to follow after your sinful ways, their blood is on your hands.

    A great leader leads even when no one is around to follow. We can not live our lives trying to hide our sins from others cause your sins will surly find you out. Just as pastor showed in our lesson last night, if we live a pure life when we see God it will be pure and when others look at us they will see God. There will be no hurt or sin blocking them from seeing the King of Kings when they look at our lives.

  14. The first step to keeping a pure heart is to get rid of the nasty, filthy, carnality, and idols.

    11 And Asa did that which was right in the eyes of the Lord, as did David his father.

    12 And he took away the sodomites out of the land, and removed all the idols that his fathers had made.

    13 And also Maachah his mother, even her he removed from being queen, because she had made an idol in a grove; and Asa destroyed her idol, and burnt it by the brook Kidron.

    Asa walked with God, and the example of doing right in the lord’s eyes was to clean house. Thankful for the timely message last night.

    Blessed are the pure in heart…

  15. CLEAN HOUSE

    9 And in the twentieth year of Jeroboam king of Israel reigned Asa over Judah.
    10 And forty and one years reigned he in Jerusalem. And his mother’s name was Maachah, the daughter of Abishalom.
    11 And Asa did that which was right in the eyes of the Lord, as did David his father.

    Asa did that which was right in the eyes of the LORD! Why does it take so long and why is it so challenging to do what is right in the sight of the LORD? As we follow the steps that Asa took we find some insight into what may be some of the challenges we face even today:

    1. vs12 And he took away the sodomites out of the land,.. In other words “He got rid of the sacred prostitutes”. He got rid of the LUST of the FLESH

    2. vs12 …removed all the idols that his fathers had made. He got rid of everything that was worshipped other than the LORD GOD.

    3. vs13 And also Maachah his mother, even her he removed from being queen, because she had made an idol in a grove; and Asa destroyed her idol, and burnt it by the brook Kidron. “He CORRECTED HIS FAMILY” (TEAR it down and BURN IT if it does not GLORIFY GOD).

    4. vs15 And he brought in the things which his father had dedicated, and the things which himself had dedicated, into the house of the Lord, silver, and gold, and vessels. “He RESTORED a life of DEDICATION not only the values of his elders; but also brought some DEDICATIONS of HIS OWN.”

    Restoring the Kingdom of GOD always requires correction on our part. We need to evaluate our lives today to see what needs to be removed, destroyed, put out or burnt and what needs to be restored, brought in and sacrificed.

    iPray
    iWork
    iGive
    iRepent

  16. Asa is a perfect example of a sinner/backslider getting in right standing with God. I often hear “when I get everything worked out then I’ll get right with the Lord.” Or some say “I like what I’m doing. I’m having fun and when I get tried of it I’ll get right.I know I need to do it and it will happen one day.”

    In verse 14 it states that not all the high places were not removed. So there were still issues that needed to be fixed in his kingdom but Asa’s heart was perfect with the Lord all his days. If we are waiting until we get everything worked out one day we will find ourselves in burning pit thinking “it would have been better if I would have cut off those things that needed to be worked out than to be cast into everlasting fire (Matt 18:8)” It all boils down to a heart condition. Thank you Pastor for last nights message! When our heart is pure we will find ourselves not liking what we are doing (sin) or who we see in the mirror(works of flesh). And will find that it really isn’t fun after all. Seek the Lord with a pure heart for this day is salvation come (Luk 19:9) and now is the day of salvation. (2 Cor 6:2)

  17. ILove to eat lunch with Jesus

    I just received an incredible understanding…

    The other day my Co-Worker challenged me with these words, ” I thought your God was a loving God…” this was in response to the blog where the Lion killed the prophet…

    Also

    Today I read the following scriptures

    29 And it came to pass, when he reigned, that he smote all the house of Jeroboam; he left not to Jeroboam any that breathed, until he had destroyed him, according unto the saying of the Lord, which he spake by his servant Ahijah the Shilonite:

    30 Because of the sins of Jeroboam which he sinned, and which he made Israel sin, by his provocation wherewith he provoked the Lord God of Israel to anger.

    As I read those scriptures, the words of my co-worker echoed in my mind…”I thought God was a loving God…”

    Then the revelation came… Out of nowhere my mind sees the whole picture…God is not killing people, or using the king to murder people,but using the king for judgement. In the Garden man was worthy of death…. As soon as he ate… But the grace and mercy of God shed the innocent blood of an animal and pushed the sin forward.

    The revelation part is God is not killing folks…judgement has just finally caught up to them and they have refused the covering of the sacrifice thereby resulting in their own death.

  18. 4 Nevertheless for David’s sake did the Lord his God give him a lamp in Jerusalem, to set up his son after him, and to establish Jerusalem.

    You make the choice to live for God or not, just like many of these kings did. Your choice will affect generations after your gone. King Asa made a decision to follow God. He tore down idols and followed in David’s footsteps. He also had God’s protection of safety.

    Be careful of who your with, what your doing, where your going, and when you doing something–they affect you and those around you.

  19. The one bright spot in this chaper is Asa, who had a perfect heart before the Lord. To have been this type of man, someone had to have taught him the ways of the Lord. However, his mother crafted an idol that Asa destroyed. Meanwhile the rest of the land continued deep in sin, but at least while Asa lives and rules, Judah had a time of respite from the ongoing saga of sin.

  20. Asa seemed to be surrounded by evil doers. But that didn’t discourage him. We should not be discouraged by our surroundings or our circumstance. He reigned a long time and it seems evil kings do not hold the power for long because they do not have God on there side. At 19 I was given 20yrs. In 2006 the average expectancy was 5 months when I left the Hospital. That was 6 years ago. These bodies won’t last forever but I can say I fought a good fight and Jesus prolonged my stay.

  21. 17 And Baasha king of Israel went up against Judah, and built Ramah, that he might not suffer any to go out or come in to Asa king of Judah.

    21 And it came to pass, when Baasha heard thereof, that he left off building of Ramah, and dwelt in Tirzah.

    22 Then king Asa made a proclamation throughout all Judah; none was exempted: and they took away the stones of Ramah, and the timber thereof, wherewith Baasha had builded; and king Asa built with them Geba of Benjamin, and Mizpah.

    But as for you, ye thought evil against me; but God meant it unto good, to bring to pass, as it is this day, to save much people alive. (Genesis 50:20 KJV)

    And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose. (Romans 8:28 KJV)

    Some things may start out looking like a curse but will be revealed as a blessing before it’s over. We must keep walking by faith and trusting God to provide. Asa took from one city and raised up two; if we hold on through the process, God can bless our mess and multiply the end result.

  22. 15. And he brought in the things which his father had dedicated, and the things which himself had dedicated, into the house of the Lord, silver, and gold, and vessels.

    I am thankful for the heritage we have – the things our parents have taught us and the things they have dedicated; however, they cannot live for God for us…we have to dedicate our own lives and things as well.

  23. ILove to eat supper with Jesus

    Get some courage and do what’s right

    And Asa did that which was right in the eyes of the Lord, as did David his father. And he took away the sodomites out of the land, and removed all the idols that his fathers had made. And also Maachah his mother, even her he removed from being queen, because she had made an idol in a grove; and Asa destroyed her idol, and burnt it by the brook Kidron. (1 Kings 15:11-13 KJV)

    ***Sometimes there are customs and traditions in which we were raised that totally go against Gods will and Word. Many times when we finally decide to break tradition, it is our extended family that gives us the most trouble. We have got to be brave and remove anything or anyone who stands in the way of our relationship with Jesus.

  24. Doing right by God is all that matters. When pastor brings the word, I know that it is from God because it convicts my soul. Thank God that we have a true man of God and nt a fake who is wanting to be liked. He is the one who God placed over our soul. Just like the king who put away all of the idols, pastor steps on our toes to show us that God is real

  25. Don’t stop short now. If GOD is GOD kick the others out and let HIM be GOD forever
    eternally in the heavens.

  26. 11 And Asa did that which was right in the eyes of the Lord, as did David his father.

    12 And he took away the sodomites out of the land, and removed all the idols that his fathers had made.

    We must remove those things which are not pleasing unto the Lord. When things are in our life and they are contrary to God’s plan, we cannot receive the blessings that God has instore for us. It’s important to have a pure heart and a good walk with God. The enemy will do everything in his power to see you fail, but our God is a winner, so that makes us victorious!!!

  27. It’s sin that destroys a soul, David was also a sinner like we all are. He was a King then died and his children reigned after him. It’s a pattern that developed in time. If Israel chose to do bad and evil was because they chose to do it, they new being good wasn’t much fun. So why not get away with what they can, after all everybody does it. This is the evil mentality way of thinking. If one foot is in and other foot is out then they don’t think alike. How can making our mind to do good make a difference, it’s not fun. That’s what Israelites liked to do what everyone else is doing and not what the Lord commands them to do. Nobody liked to follow rules much less commands from God.

    Lord I plead your blood wash me clean white as snow. Delivery me from temptation and all evil.

  28. 23 The rest of all the acts of Asa, and all his might, and all that he did, and the cities which he built, are they not written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Judah? Nevertheless in the time of his old age he was diseased in his feet.

    Asa acts as king aren’t recorded but he is remembered because of disease in his feet. The feet are th foundation of a person. They are what help you stand and move, if your feet arent right you can’t stand firm. Don’t be remembered for problems ith your feet

  29. 3 And he walked in all the sins of his father, which he had done before him: and his heart was not perfect with theLord his God, as the heart of David his father.

    David, a man after Gods own heart, is difficult to replace. True worship is valued by God. He is seeking for a people that will worship him in spirit and in truth. I hope I please the Lord with my worship.

  30. Nevertheless for David’s sake did the LORD his God give him a lamp in Jerusalem, to set up his son after him, and to establish Jerusalem: -1 Kings 15:4

    Because David did that which was right in the eyes of the LORD, and turned not aside from any thing that he commanded him all the days of his life, save only in the matter of Uriah the Hittite. -1 Kings 15:5

    David’s obedience to the Lord not only blessed him during his life but it blessed his children after his death.

  31. It is so important to teach our children the statutes of God so that when we go on they will lead our families with integrity and please our God by what they are doing. God help me to be the man you hav ecalled me to be so that I am an example that my children can trust and fallow in righteousness

  32. 11 And Asa did that which was right in the eyes of the Lord, as did David his father
    We should all long for that to be said of us.
    He worked at getting out the bad, even with his own mother. Although he didn’t remove where the other people had their idols he was still good like David.

  33. 11 And Asa did that which was right in the eyes of the Lord, as did David his father
    We should all long for that to be said of us.
    He worked at getting out the bad, even with his own mother. Although he didn’t remove where the other people had their idols he was still good like David.

  34. Nevertheless for David’s sake did the Lord his God give him a lamp in Jerusalem, to set up his son after him, and to establish Jerusalem: Because David did that which was right in the eyes of theLord, and turned not aside from any thing that he commanded him all the days of his life, save only in the matter of Uriah the Hittite.

    Even the good we do has lasting effects, I think we mostly focus on generational curses and the bad passed on but here is a good example of how our good choices and righteous living can effect generations to come. However it is important to note that we can’t ride anyones skirt tail to heaven. Just because our parents relationship with God is strong does not mean we are covered to do whatever we want. We must also build a relationship with the Lord and serve Him to make it to heaven.

  35. And he did evil in the sight of the Lord, and walked in the way of Jeroboam, and in his sin wherewith he made Israel to sin. (1 Kings 15:34 KJV)

    If you are a leader you need to know your responsibilities. If you act out in sin everyone that follows you will also fall into sin. We need to continually pray, fast, and know Gods word in us to be able to fight and lead properly. Gods always watching…

  36. Constant War

    Since the divison of Israel the war between Judah and the northern tribes has been the norm. The two parties arent always engaged in active combat but the hostility between them is long standing and chronic, having begun in the reign of Rehoboam and Jeroboam vs6. The animosity continues throughout the reigns of Baasha of Israel and Abijah of Judah and didn’t stop there. Asa of Judah initiates numerous religious reforms, commiting himself to the worship of God. However, he too battles against Baasha, who fortified Ramah, that city in Benjamin on the border between Judah and Israel. Baasha’s intentions of creating this ‘wall’ was to block the trade route to Jerusalem, ‘and’ to keep the people from traveling to Jerusalem to worship. Baasha’s name is strikingly similar to Baal. And his behavior lives up to it as well, dictating and seperating, these aren’t Gods intentions.

    They have literally turned on their own bretheren, family, kin. They have adopted the gang mentality of fighting for where they think they ‘belong’ , this must have been a veil the Lord allowed for his wayward children as a form of punishment, because they are in fact killing their own kind. This wouldn’t be the 1st time the Lord has used this tactic to rid the dirty out of the water, and wont be the last. Thank you Jesus!

  37. 30 Because of the sins of Jeroboam which he sinned, and which he made Israel sin, by his provocation wherewith he provoked the Lord God of Israel to anger.

    31 Now the rest of the acts of Nadab, and all that he did, are they not written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Israel?

    32 And there was war between Asa and Baasha king of Israel all their days.

    33 In the third year of Asa king of Judah began Baasha the son of Ahijah to reign over all Israel in Tirzah, twenty and four years.

    34 And he did evil in the sight of the Lord, and walked in the way of Jeroboam, and in his sin wherewith he made Israel to sin.

    Your actions will affect others…
    Maybe Jeroboam did not realize that his actions were not just affecting him but also those that would come after him. By being selfish and sinning without thinking about the punishment , he influenced Asa who also sinned and made Israel to sin. It is important to remember that our action good or bad do have an effect on others.
