RF CH2 12:1 (B.C. 972) Shishak of Egypt invades Judah.
But when Rehaboam was fixed in the Kingship, and had strengthened himself, he abandoned the Laws of the EVER-LIVING, and all Israel followed him.
RF CH2 12:2 Then in the fifth year of Rehoboam's reign, Shishak, the King of the Mitzeraim, came up against Jerusalem, because they had risen against the EVER-LIVING,
RF CH2 12:3 with twelve hundred Chariots, and sixty thousand Cavalry, and an innumerable army with him, from the Mitzeraim, Lubim, Sukiim, and Kushim,
RF CH2 12:4 and they captured the Fortified Cities in Judah, and arrived at Jerusalem.
RF CH2 12:5 Then Shemiah the Reciter came to Rehaboam and the Princes of Judah, who had collected at Jerusalem in flight from Shishak, and said to them;—"Thus says the EVER-LIVING, 'You abandoned Me, so I have abandoned you to the hand of Shishak.'"
RF CH2 12:6 The Princes of Israel, and the King then humbled themselves, and replied, "The EVER-LIVING is right."
RF CH2 12:7 So when the LORD saw that they were penitent, a Message from the EVER-LIVING came to Shemiah, to say, "They have repented; I will not desolate them; but will give them in a little while an escape; and My anger shall not be passed on Jerusalem by the hand of Shishak;
RF CH2 12:8 but they shall be his subjects and learn the difference of subjection to Me, and subjection to the Kings of the countries."
RF CH2 12:9 But Shishak the King of the Mitzeraim advanced against Jerusalem, and took the treasures of the House of the EVER-LIVING, and all the treasures of the King's Palace, and seized the Golden Shields that Solomon had made.
RF CH2 12:10 King Rehaboam consequently made Shields of brass instead of them, and entrusted them to the care of the General of the Infantry who kept guard before the Royal Palace,
RF CH2 12:11 and when the King went to the House of the EVER-LIVING the Infantry came and carried them, then returned them to the Infantry store.
RF CH2 12:12 But when they were humiliated the anger of the LORD turned from them, and they were not completely desolated; and comforting messages also came to Judah,
RF CH2 12:13 so King Rehaboam settled himself in Jerusalem, and reigned. Rehaboam was forty-one years old at his Coronation, and he reigned seventeen years in Jerusalem, the City that the EVER-LIVING had chosen from all the Tribes of Israel to fix His NAME there. His mother's name was Namah the Amonith.
RF CH2 12:14 But he did wrong, for he did not fix his heart to seek the EVER-LIVING.
RF CH2 12:15 However, the doings of Rehaboam, the first and the last, are they not recorded in the Histories of Shemiah the Reciter, and also the Prophet, with his Genealogy, and the Wars of Rehaboam, and Jerabam all the time?
RF CH2 12:16 At last Rehaboam slept with his fathers, and was buried in the City of David, and Abiah his son reigned in his stead.
