1 KINGS 14:21-15:8
14:21 And Rehoboam the son of Solomon reigned in Judah. Rehoboam was forty-one years old when he began to reign, and he reigned seventeen years in Jerusalem, the city where Jehovah had chosen, out of all the tribes of Israel, to put His name. And his mother’s name was Naamah the Ammonitess.
14:22 And Judah did what was evil in the sight of Jehovah and provoked Him to jealousy because of the sins which they committed, above all the sins which their fathers had committed.
14:23 And they also built for themselves high places and pillars and Asherahs on every high hill and under every flourishing tree,
14:24 And there were also male cult prostitutes in the land. They acted according to all the abominations of the nations that Jehovah had dispossessed before the children of Israel.
14:25 Then in the fifth year of King Rehoboam, Shishak the king of Egypt came up against Jerusalem.
14:26 And he took away the treasures of the house of Jehovah and the treasures of the king’s house; indeed he took away all. And he took away all the shields of gold that Solomon had made.
14:27 And King Rehoboam made shields of bronze in their place and committed them into the hands of the captains of the guard, who kept the door of the king’s house.
14:28 And whenever the king went into the house of Jehovah, the guards carried them and returned them to the guardroom.
14:29 And the rest of the acts of Rehoboam and all that he did, are they not written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Judah?
14:30 And there was war between Rehoboam and Jeroboam continually.
14:31 And Rehoboam slept with his fathers and was buried with his fathers in the city of David. And his mother’s name was Naamah the Ammonitess.
And Abijam his son reigned in his place.
15:1 And in the eighteenth year of King Jeroboam the son of Nebat, Abijam began to reign over Judah.
15:2 He reigned three years in Jerusalem, and his mother’s name was Maacah, the daughter of Abishalom.
15:3 And he walked in all the sins of his father, which he had done before him; and his heart was not perfect with Jehovah his God like the heart of David his father.
15:4 Yet for David’s sake Jehovah his God gave him a lamp in Jerusalem, raising up his son after him and establishing Jerusalem;
15:5 Because David did what was upright in the sight of Jehovah and did not turn aside from anything that He had commanded him all the days of his life, except in the matter of Uriah the Hittite.
15:6 And there was war between Rehoboam and Jeroboam all the days of his life.
15:7 And 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.
15:8 And Abijam slept with his fathers, and they buried him in the city of David.
And Asa his son reigned in his place.
