2 Chronicles 11:5-23

And Rehoboam
<07346>
dwelt
<03427> (8799)
in Jerusalem
<03389>_,
and built
<01129> (8799)
cities
<05892>
for defence
<04692>
in Judah
<03063>_.
He built
<01129> (8799)
even Bethlehem
<01035>_,
and Etam
<05862>_,
and Tekoa
<08620>_,
And Bethzur
<01049>_,
and Shoco
<07755>_,
and Adullam
<05725>_,
And Gath
<01661>_,
and Mareshah
<04762>_,
and Ziph
<02128>_,
And Adoraim
<0115>_,
and Lachish
<03923>_,
and Azekah
<05825>_,
And Zorah
<06881>_,
and Aijalon
<0357>_,
and Hebron
<02275>_,
which [are] in Judah
<03063>
and in Benjamin
<01144>
fenced
<04694>
cities
<05892>_.
And he fortified
<02388> (8762)
the strong holds
<04694>_,
and put
<05414> (8799)
captains
<05057>
in them, and store
<0214>
of victual
<03978>_,
and of oil
<08081>
and wine
<03196>_.
And in every several city
<05892>
[he put] shields
<06793>
and spears
<07420>_,
and made them exceeding
<07235> (8687) <03966>
strong
<02388> (8762)_,
having Judah
<03063>
and Benjamin
<01144>
on his side.
And the priests
<03548>
and the Levites
<03881>
that [were] in all Israel
<03478>
resorted
<03320> (8694)
to him out of all their coasts
<01366>_.
{resorted...: Heb. presented themselves to him}
For the Levites
<03881>
left
<05800> (8804)
their suburbs
<04054>
and their possession
<0272>_,
and came
<03212> (8799)
to Judah
<03063>
and Jerusalem
<03389>_:
for Jeroboam
<03379>
and his sons
<01121>
had cast them off
<02186> (8689)
from executing the priest's office
<03547> (8763)
unto the LORD
<03068>_:
And he ordained
<05975> (8686)
him priests
<03548>
for the high places
<01116>_,
and for the devils
<08163>_,
and for the calves
<05695>
which he had made
<06213> (8804)_.
And after
<0310>
them out of all the tribes
<07626>
of Israel
<03478>
such as set
<05414> (8802)
their hearts
<03824>
to seek
<01245> (8763)
the LORD
<03068>
God
<0430>
of Israel
<03478>
came
<0935> (8804)
to Jerusalem
<03389>_,
to sacrifice
<02076> (8800)
unto the LORD
<03068>
God
<0430>
of their fathers
<01>_.
So they strengthened
<02388> (8762)
the kingdom
<04438>
of Judah
<03063>_,
and made Rehoboam
<07346>
the son
<01121>
of Solomon
<08010>
strong
<0553> (8762)_,
three
<07969>
years
<08141>_:
for three
<07969>
years
<08141>
they walked
<01980> (8804)
in the way
<01870>
of David
<01732>
and Solomon
<08010>_.
And Rehoboam
<07346>
took
<03947> (8799)
him Mahalath
<04258>
the daughter
<01323> (8675) <01121>
of Jerimoth
<03406>
the son
<01121>
of David
<01732>
to wife
<0802>_,
[and] Abihail
<032>
the daughter
<01323>
of Eliab
<0446>
the son
<01121>
of Jesse
<03448>_;
Which bare
<03205> (8799)
him children
<01121>_;
Jeush
<03266>_,
and Shamariah
<08114>_,
and Zaham
<02093>_.
And after
<0310>
her he took
<03947> (8804)
Maachah
<04601>
the daughter
<01323>
of Absalom
<053>_;
which bare
<03205> (8799)
him Abijah
<029>_,
and Attai
<06262>_,
and Ziza
<02124>_,
and Shelomith
<08019>_.
{Maachah: she is also called Michaiah the daughter of Uriel}
And Rehoboam
<07346>
loved
<0157> (8799)
Maachah
<04601>
the daughter
<01323>
of Absalom
<053>
above all his wives
<0802>
and his concubines
<06370>_:
(for he took
<05375> (8804)
eighteen
<08083> <06240>
wives
<0802>_,
and threescore
<08346>
concubines
<06370>_;
and begat
<03205> (8686)
twenty
<06242>
and eight
<08083>
sons
<01121>_,
and threescore
<08346>
daughters
<01323>.)
And Rehoboam
<07346>
made
<05975> (8686)
Abijah
<029>
the son
<01121>
of Maachah
<04601>
the chief
<07218>_,
[to be] ruler
<05057>
among his brethren
<0251>_:
for [he thought] to make him king
<04427> (8687)_.
And he dealt wisely
<0995> (8799)_,
and dispersed
<06555> (8799)
of all his children
<01121>
throughout all the countries
<0776>
of Judah
<03063>
and Benjamin
<01144>_,
unto every fenced
<04694>
city
<05892>_:
and he gave
<05414> (8799)
them victual
<04202>
in abundance
<07230>_.
And he desired
<07592> (8799)
many
<01995>
wives
<0802>_.
{many wives: Heb. a multitude of wives}

2 Chronicles 12:13-16

So king
<04428>
Rehoboam
<07346>
strengthened
<02388> (8691)
himself in Jerusalem
<03389>_,
and reigned
<04427> (8799)_:
for Rehoboam
<07346>
[was] one
<0259>
and forty
<0705>
years
<08141>
old
<01121>
when he began to reign
<04427> (8800)_,
and he reigned
<04427> (8804)
seventeen
<07651> <06240>
years
<08141>
in Jerusalem
<03389>_,
the city
<05892>
which the LORD
<03068>
had chosen
<0977> (8804)
out of all the tribes
<07626>
of Israel
<03478>_,
to put
<07760> (8800)
his name
<08034>
there. And his mother's
<0517>
name
<08034>
[was] Naamah
<05279>
an Ammonitess
<05985>_.
And he did
<06213> (8799)
evil
<07451>_,
because he prepared
<03559> (8689)
not his heart
<03820>
to seek
<01875> (8800)
the LORD
<03068>_.
{prepared: or, fixed}
Now the acts
<01697>
of Rehoboam
<07346>_,
first
<07223>
and last
<0314>_,
[are] they not written
<03789> (8803)
in the book
<01697>
of Shemaiah
<08098>
the prophet
<05030>_,
and of Iddo
<05714>
the seer
<02374>
concerning genealogies
<03187> (8692)_?
And [there were] wars
<04421>
between Rehoboam
<07346>
and Jeroboam
<03379>
continually
<03117>_.
{book: Heb. words}
And Rehoboam
<07346>
slept
<07901> (8799)
with his fathers
<01>_,
and was buried
<06912> (8735)
in the city
<05892>
of David
<01732>_:
and Abijah
<029>
his son
<01121>
reigned
<04427> (8799)
in his stead. {Abijah: also called, Abijam}
