1 When Rehoboam had consolidated the kingdom and become strong, he, and all Israel with him, abandoned the Law of Yahweh;
2Chr 11:17 2Chr 12:13 1Kgs 14:22-24 2Chr 26:13-16 1Kgs 9:9 1Kgs 12:17 2Chr 11:3
2 and thus it happened that in the fifth year of King Rehoboam, Shishak king of Egypt marched on Jerusalem, because they had been unfaithful to Yahweh,
1Kgs 11:40 1Chr 28:9 1Kgs 14:24-26 2Chr 7:19-20 2Chr 36:14-19 Isa 63:10 Jer 2:19
3 with twelve hundred chariots and sixty thousand cavalry and countless hordes of Libyans, Sukkiim and Cushites who came from Egypt with him.
2Chr 16:8 Nah 3:9 Dan 11:43 1Sam 13:5 2Chr 14:9 2Chr 14:12 2Sam 10:18
4 They captured the fortified towns of Judah and reached Jerusalem.
2Chr 11:5-12 2Kgs 18:17 Isa 8:8 Isa 10:11 Isa 36:1 Jer 5:10
5 The prophet Shemaiah then came to Rehoboam and the generals of Judah, who had fallen back on Jerusalem before Shishak's advance, and said to them, 'Yahweh says this, "You have abandoned me and so I have abandoned you into Shishak's clutches." '
2Chr 11:2 2Chr 15:2 1Kgs 12:22 1Chr 28:9 2Chr 12:1-2 2Sam 24:14 Deut 28:15-68
6 At this, the Israelite generals and the king humbled themselves and said, 'Yahweh is just!'
Exod 9:27 Dan 9:14 1Kgs 8:37-39 2Chr 32:26 2Chr 33:12 2Chr 33:19 2Chr 33:23
7 When Yahweh saw that they had humbled themselves, the word of Yahweh came to Shemaiah as follows, 'They have humbled themselves. I shall not destroy them but shall grant them some degree of deliverance. My retribution will not be poured out on Jerusalem by means of Shishak;
2Chr 34:25 1Kgs 21:28-29 2Chr 34:21 2Kgs 13:4-7 2Kgs 13:23 Amos 7:6-8 Isa 42:25
8 they are nonetheless to become his slaves, so that they may learn the difference between serving me and serving kings of other countries.'
Deut 28:47-48 Isa 26:13 Hos 8:10 Jer 10:24 Judg 3:1 Neh 9:36
9 So Shishak king of Egypt advanced on Jerusalem and carried off the treasures of the Temple and the treasures of the royal palace. He took everything away, including the golden shields which Solomon had made.
1Kgs 10:16-17 2Chr 9:15-16 1Kgs 14:25-28 1Kgs 15:18 2Kgs 16:8 2Kgs 18:15-16 Lam 1:10
10 To replace these, King Rehoboam made bronze shields, entrusting them to the commanders of the guard who guarded the king's palace gate.
1Chr 11:25 1Kgs 14:27 2Sam 8:18 2Sam 23:23 Lam 4:1 Song 3:7-8
11 Whenever the king went to the Temple of Yahweh, the guards would come out carrying them, returning them to the guardroom afterwards.
12 Because King Rehoboam had humbled himself, the retribution of Yahweh turned away from him so as not to destroy him completely; and there were also some good features in Judah.
2Chr 19:3 1Kgs 14:13 2Chr 12:6-7 1Pet 5:6 2Chr 33:12-13 Gen 18:24 Isa 6:13
13 Thus he was able to strengthen his position in Jerusalem and continue as king; for Rehoboam was forty-one years old when he came to the throne and remained king for seventeen years in Jerusalem, the city chosen by Yahweh from all the tribes of Israel to put his name there. His mother's name was Naamah the Ammonite.
1Kgs 14:21 2Chr 6:6 Deut 12:5 1Kgs 11:1 2Chr 13:7 Deut 12:11 Deut 23:3
14 But he did wrong in not setting his heart on seeking Yahweh.
2Chr 19:3 1Cor 15:58 1Cor 16:13 Ezek 33:31 Isa 45:19 Isa 55:6-7 Matt 7:7
15 The history of Rehoboam, from first to last, is this not all written down in the records of Shemaiah the prophet and of Iddo the seer? Warfare between Rehoboam and Jeroboam went on throughout the period.
2Chr 9:29 2Chr 12:5 1Kgs 12:22 2Chr 13:22 1Kgs 14:29-30
16 When Rehoboam fell asleep with his ancestors, he was buried in the City of David; his son Abijah succeeded him.
