|2nd Chronicles 11|
King James Bible
Then came1 Shemaiah the prophet to Rehoboam, and [to] the princes of Judah, that were gathered8 together to Jerusalem because of Shishak, and said4 unto them, Thus saith1 the LORD, Ye have forsaken1 me, and therefore have I also left1 you in the hand of Shishak.
And when the LORD saw2 that they humbled8 themselves, the word of the LORD came to Shemaiah, saying,2 They have humbled8 themselves; [therefore] I will not destroy55 them, but I will grant1 them some deliverance; and my wrath shall not be poured out4 upon Jerusalem by the hand of Shishak.
So Shishak king of Egypt came up4 against Jerusalem, and took4 away the treasures of the house of the LORD, and the treasures of the king's house; he took1 all: he carried away4 also the shields of gold which Solomon had made.1
So king Rehoboam strengthened101 himself in Jerusalem, and reigned:4 for Rehoboam [was] one and forty years old when he began to reign,2 and he reigned1 seventeen 6240 years in Jerusalem, the city which the LORD had chosen1 out of all the tribes of Israel, to put2 his name there. And his mother's name [was] Naamah an Ammonitess.
Now the acts of Rehoboam, first and last, [are] they not written7 in the book of Shemaiah the prophet, and of Iddo the seer concerning genealogies?99 And [there were] wars between Rehoboam and Jeroboam continually. 3117
