12:1 And it came to pass, when Rehoboam [H7346] had established [H3559] the kingdom [H4438] , and had strengthened [H2393] himself, he forsook [H5800] the law [H8451] of the LORD [H3068] , and all Israel [H3478] with him.
12:2 And it came to pass, [that] in the fifth [H2549] year [H8141] of king [H4428] Rehoboam [H7346] Shishak [H7895] king [H4428] of Egypt [H4714] came up [H5927] against Jerusalem [H3389] , because they had transgressed [H4603] against the LORD [H3068] ,
12:3 With twelve hundred [H3967] [H505] chariots [H7393] , and threescore [H8346] thousand [H505] horsemen [H6571] : and the people [H5971] [were] without number [H4557] that came [H935] with him out of Egypt [H4714] ; the Lubims [H3864] , the Sukkiims [H5525] , and the Ethiopians [H3569] .
12:4 And he took [H3920] the fenced [H4694] cities [H5892] which [pertained] to Judah [H3063] , and came [H935] to Jerusalem [H3389] .
12:5 Then came [H935] Shemaiah [H8098] the prophet [H5030] to Rehoboam [H7346] , and [to] the princes [H8269] of Judah [H3063] , that were gathered together [H622] to Jerusalem [H3389] because [H6440] of Shishak [H7895] , and said [H559] unto them, Thus saith [H559] the LORD [H3068] , Ye have forsaken [H5800] me, and therefore have I also [H637] left [H5800] you in the hand [H3027] of Shishak [H7895] .
12:6 Whereupon the princes [H8269] of Israel [H3478] and the king [H4428] humbled [H3665] themselves; and they said [H559] , The LORD [H3068] [is] righteous [H6662] .
12:7 And when the LORD [H3068] saw [H7200] that they humbled [H3665] themselves, the word [H1697] of the LORD [H3068] came to Shemaiah [H8098] , saying [H559] , They have humbled [H3665] themselves; [therefore] I will not destroy [H7843] them, but I will grant [H5414] them some [H4592] deliverance [H6413] ; and my wrath [H2534] shall not be poured out [H5413] upon Jerusalem [H3389] by the hand [H3027] of Shishak [H7895] .(some: or, a little while)
12:8 Nevertheless they shall be his servants [H5650] ; that they may know [H3045] my service [H5656] , and the service [H5656] of the kingdoms [H4467] of the countries [H776] .
12:9 So Shishak [H7895] king [H4428] of Egypt [H4714] came up [H5927] against Jerusalem [H3389] , and took away [H3947] the treasures [H214] of the house [H1004] of the LORD [H3068] , and the treasures [H214] of the king's [H4428] house [H1004] ; he took [H3947] all: he carried away [H3947] also the shields [H4043] of gold [H2091] which Solomon [H8010] had made [H6213] .
12:10 Instead of which king [H4428] Rehoboam [H7346] made [H6213] shields [H4043] of brass [H5178] , and committed [H6485] [them] to the hands [H3027] of the chief [H8269] of the guard [H7323] , that kept [H8104] the entrance [H6607] of the king's [H4428] house [H1004] .
12:11 And when [H1767] the king [H4428] entered [H935] into the house [H1004] of the LORD [H3068] , the guard [H7323] came [H935] and fetched [H5375] them, and brought them again [H7725] into the guard [H7323] chamber [H8372] .
12:12 And when he humbled [H3665] himself, the wrath [H639] of the LORD [H3068] turned [H7725] from him, that he would not destroy [H7843] [him] altogether [H3617] : and also in Judah [H3063] things [H1697] went well [H2896] .(and also: or, and yet in Judah there were good things)
12:13 So king [H4428] Rehoboam [H7346] strengthened [H2388] himself in Jerusalem [H3389] , and reigned [H4427] : for Rehoboam [H7346] [was] one [H259] and forty [H705] years [H8141] old [H1121] when he began to reign [H4427] , and he reigned [H4427] seventeen [H7651] [H6240] years [H8141] in Jerusalem [H3389] , the city [H5892] which the LORD [H3068] had chosen [H977] out of all the tribes [H7626] of Israel [H3478] , to put [H7760] his name [H8034] there. And his mother's [H517] name [H8034] [was] Naamah [H5279] an Ammonitess [H5985] .
12:14 And he did [H6213] evil [H7451] , because he prepared [H3559] not his heart [H3820] to seek [H1875] the LORD [H3068] .(prepared: or, fixed)
12:15 Now the acts [H1697] of Rehoboam [H7346] , first [H7223] and last [H314] , [are] they not written [H3789] in the book [H1697] of Shemaiah [H8098] the prophet [H5030] , and of Iddo [H5714] the seer [H2374] concerning genealogies [H3187] ? And [there were] wars [H4421] between Rehoboam [H7346] and Jeroboam [H3379] continually [H3117] .(book: Heb. words)
12:16 And Rehoboam [H7346] slept [H7901] with his fathers [H1] , and was buried [H6912] in the city [H5892] of David [H1732] : and Abijah [H29] his son [H1121] reigned [H4427] in his stead.
