2 Chronicles 10:15-19

Context
10:15 The king refused to listen to the people, because God was instigating this turn of events 1  so that he might bring to pass the prophetic announcement he had made 2  through Ahijah the Shilonite to Jeroboam son of Nebat.

10:16 When all Israel saw that the king refused to listen to them, the people answered the king, “We have no portion in David – no share in the son of Jesse! 3  Return to your homes, O Israel! 4  Now, look after your own dynasty, O David!” 5  So all Israel returned to their homes. 6  10:17 (Rehoboam continued to rule over the Israelites who lived in the cities of Judah.) 10:18 King Rehoboam sent Hadoram, 7  the supervisor of the work crews, out after them, but the Israelites stoned him to death. King Rehoboam managed to jump into his chariot and escape to Jerusalem. 8  10:19 So Israel has been in rebellion against the Davidic dynasty to this very day.

1 tn Heb “because this turn of events was from God.”

2 tn Heb “so that the Lord might bring to pass his word which he spoke.”

3 sn The people’s point seems to be that they have no familial relationship with David that brings them any benefits or places upon them any obligations. They are being treated like outsiders.

4 tn Heb “each one to your tents, Israel.” The word “return” is supplied in the translation for stylistic reasons.

5 tn Heb “Now see your house, David.”

6 tn Heb “went to their tents.”

7 sn In the parallel account in 1 Kgs 12:18 this name appears as “Adoniram.”
