1 Kings 11:43--12:1

Context
11:43 Then Solomon passed away 1  and was buried in the city of his father David. 2  His son Rehoboam replaced him as king. 3 

Rehoboam Loses His Kingdom

12:1 Rehoboam traveled to Shechem, for all Israel had gathered in 4  Shechem to make Rehoboam 5  king.

1 tn Heb “lay down with his fathers.”

2 sn The city of his father David. The phrase refers here to the fortress of Zion in Jerusalem, not to Bethlehem. See 2 Sam 5:7.

3 tc Before this sentence the Old Greek translation includes the following words: “And it so happened that when Jeroboam son of Nebat heard – now he was in Egypt where he had fled from before Solomon and was residing in Egypt – he came straight to his city in the land of Sarira which is on mount Ephraim. And king Solomon slept with his fathers.”

4 tn Heb “come [to].”

5 tn Heb “him”; the referent (Rehoboam) has been specified in the translation for clarity.
