Chapter 12. Now it came to pass when rehoboam had Established the kingdom and had Strengthened himself that he forsook the Law of the Lord and all Israel along With him And it happened in the fifth year of King rehoboam that shishak king of Egypt Came up against Jerusalem Because they had transgressed against The Lord with 1200 chariots sixty Thousand Horsemen and people without Number who came with him out of Egypt And the Ethiopians And he took the Fortified cities of Judah and came to Jerusalem Then shamaya the prophet came to Rehoboam and the leaders of Judah who Were gathered together in Jerusalem Because of shishak And said to them Thus says the Lord You have forsaken me and therefore I Also have left you in the hand of Shishak So the leaders of Israel and the King Humbled themselves and they said the Lord is righteous Now when the Lord saw that they humbled Themselves the word of the Lord came to Shema saying They have humbled themselves therefore I Will not destroy them but I will grant Them some Deliverance

My wrath shall not be poured out on Jerusalem by the hand of shishak Nevertheless they will be his servants That they may distinguish my service From the service of the kingdoms of the Nations So shishach 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 everything He also carried away the gold Shields Which Solomon had made Then King rehoboam made bronze shields In their place and committed them to the Hands of the captains of The God Who Guarded the doorway of the King's house And whenever the king entered the house Of the Lord the guard would go and bring Them out Then they would take them back into the Guard room When he humbled himself the Wrath of the Lord turned from him so as not to Destroy him completely And things also went well in Judah Thus King rehoboam strengthened himself In Jerusalem and reigned Now rehoboam was 41 years old when he Became king and he reigned 17 years in Jerusalem the city which the Lord had Chosen out of all the tribes of Israel To put his name there His mother's name was Neymar and

Amanitis And he did Evil because he did not Prepare his heart to seek the Lord The acts of rehoboam first and last are They not written in the book of shamaya The prophet and of Ido The Seer Concerning genealogies And there were Wars between rioboam and Jeroboam all their days So rioboam rested with his fathers and Was buried in the city of David Then abijah his son reigned in his place
