Then came Shemai'ah the prophet to Rehobo'am, and to the princes of Judah, that were gathered together to Jerusalem because of Shishak, and said unto them, Thus saith the LORD, Ye have forsaken me, and therefore have I also left you in the hand of Shishak.
And when the LORD saw that they humbled themselves, the word of the LORD came to Shemai'ah, saying, They have humbled themselves; therefore I will not destroy them, but I will grant them some deliverance; and my wrath shall not be poured out upon Jerusalem by the hand of Shishak.
¶ So Shishak king of Egypt came up against Jerusalem, and took away the treasures of the house of the LORD, and the treasures of the king's house; he took all: he carried away also the shields of gold which Solomon had made. 1 Kgs. 10.16, 17 · 2 Chr. 9.15, 16
¶ So king Rehobo'am strengthened himself in Jerusalem, and reigned: for Rehobo'am was one and forty years old when he began to reign, and he reigned seventeen years in Jerusalem, the city which the LORD had chosen out of all the tribes of Israel, to put his name there. And his mother's name was Na'amah an Ammonitess.
¶ Now the acts of Rehobo'am, first and last, are they not written in the book of Shemai'ah the prophet, and of Iddo the seer concerning genealogies? And there were wars between Rehobo'am and Jerobo'am continually.
