2Ch 15:3

“without a teaching priest.” One of the jobs of the priests was to teach the people the Law of Moses and the commands of God (Lev. 10:11). However, when the king was against God, they could only do that at the risk of their lives. But Asa supported God and the Law, and so officials and Levites were able to travel around Judah and teach the Law to the people (2 Chron. 17:7-9).

“in front of the vestibule of the house of Yahweh.” The Temple of Yahweh built by Solomon had three rooms: an outermost vestibule, then the Holy Place, then the Holy of Holies. The great altar of sacrifice was in the courtyard east of the vestibule. [For more on the Temple and the vestibule, see commentary on 1 Kings 6:3].

“queen-mother.” The Hebrew word translated “queen-mother” is gebereth (#01404 גְּבֶרֶת), and in this context the “queen-mother” is the mother of the king (BDB Hebrew and English lexicon). The Queen-mother was the most powerful woman in the kingdom, much more powerful than any of the wives of the king, who often did not have much real power at all.

2Ch 15:17

“the local shrines.” The Hebrew word “shrines” is bamot, which referred to a place that was leveled and built up and on which were placed various idols and objects of worship. Many of the towns had such shrines (see commentary on Num. 33:52).
