RF CH2 10:1 (975 B.C.) Rehaboams's Folly.
Then Rehaboam went to Shekem;—for the Parliament of Israel had come to Shekem to make him King;
RF CH2 10:2 and it occurred that Jerabam,-ben-Nebat heard of it. He was in Mitzeraim, where he had fled from King Solomon, and Jerabam resided amongst the Mitzeraim.
RF CH2 10:3 But they sent and invited him,—and Jerabam came to the Parliament of Israel, and they addressed Rehaboam and said;
RF CH2 10:4 "Your father was hard upon us,—so will you lighten the slavery of your father's oppression? and lift up the load which he placed on us?—Then we will serve you!"
RF CH2 10:5 When he replied to them; "Wait for three days,—and return to me." So the Parliament went away.
RF CH2 10:6 Then King Rehaboam consulted the Old Men, who had stood before his father Solomon, while he was alive, and asked, "What do you advise me to return as an answer to these people?"
RF CH2 10:7 And they said to him; "If you make yourself pleasant to these people, and please them, and speak good words to them, they will then be your subjects for all time."
RF CH2 10:8 But he rejected the advice of the Old Men, which they had advised him, and asked advice of the lads who had grown up with him, and stood in his presence,
RF CH2 10:9 and said to them:—"What do you advise that I should return as answer to these people? who ask me, saying, 'Ease off what your father put on us!'"
RF CH2 10:10 So the lads who had grown up with him, said; "Reply thus to the people who addressed you saying, 'Your father loaded upon us,—but you lighten off from us!' Say this to them,—'My little finger is thicker than my father's loins!—
RF CH2 10:11 So as my father loaded you with a heavy yoke, I will add to your yoke;—My father scourged you with whips,—but I with scorpions!'"
RF CH2 10:12 Jerabam and all the Parliament with him returned to Rehaboam on the third day, as the King had said to them, "Come to me on the third day,"
RF CH2 10:13 when the King answered them harshly; for King Rehaboam forsook the advice of the Old Men,
RF CH2 10:14 and answered them in accordance upon the advice of the lads, and said;—"My father was heavy upon you, but I will add myself to him! My father chastised you with whips,—but I with scorpions!"
RF CH2 10:15 Thus the King did not listen to the people. But it came round from GOD, so that he might confirm the Message of the LORD, which was delivered by means of Akhihu, the Shilonite to Jerabam,-ben-Nebat.
RF CH2 10:16 When the Parliament of Israel saw that the King would not listen to them, then the people replied to the King and exclaimed; "What advantage have we in David?—There is no benefit in the son of Jesse! Every one to your Tents, Israel! Now look to your own House David!"
RF CH2 10:17 Rehaboam Provokes a Revolt by his Folly.
And the Army of Israel went to their Tents. (But Rehaboam reigned over the Children of Israel who resided in the Cities of Judah.)
RF CH2 10:18 King Rehaboam, however, sent to them Hadoram who was Superintendent of the Conscription; but the Children of Israel overwhelmed him with stones, and killed him, so King Rehaboam got in a hurry into his carriage and fled to Jerusalem.—
RF CH2 10:19 Thus Israel rebelled from the House of David to this day.
