Book 39 : KETUVIM - 2 CHRONICLES - Chapter 011


And when Rehoboam was come to Jerusalem, he assembled the house of Judah and Benjamin, a hundred and fourscore thousand chosen men, that were warriors, to fight against Israel, to bring the kingdom back to Rehoboam


But the word of HaShem came to Shemaiah the man of G-d, saying


'Speak unto Rehoboam the son of Solomon, king of Judah, and to all Israel in Judah and Benjamin, saying


Thus saith HaShem: Ye shall not go up, nor fight against your brethren; return every man to his house, for this thing is of Me.' So they hearkened unto the words of HaShem, and returned from going against Jeroboam


And Rehoboam dwelt in Jerusalem, and built cities for defence in Judah


He built even Beth-lehem, and Etam, and Tekoa


and Beth-zur, and Soco, and Adullam


and Gath, and Mareshah, and Ziph


and Adoraim, and Lachish, and Azekah


and Zorah, and Aijalon, and Hebron, which are in Judah and in Benjamin, fortified cities


And he fortified the strongholds, and put captains in them, and store of victual, and oil and wine


And in every city he put shields and spears, and made them exceeding strong. And Judah and Benjamin adhered to him


And the priests and the Levites that were in all Israel presented themselves to him out of all their border


For the Levites left their open land and their possession, and came to Judah and Jerusalem; for Jeroboam and his sons cast them off, that they should not execute the priest's office unto HaShem


and he appointed him priests for the high places, and for the satyrs, and for the calves which he had made


And after them, out of all the tribes of Israel, such as set their hearts to seek HaShem, the G-d of Israel, came to Jerusalem to sacrifice unto HaShem, the G-d of their fathers


So they strengthened the kingdom of Judah, and made Rehoboam the son of Solomon strong, three years; for they walked three years in the way of David and Solomon


And Rehoboam took him a wife, Mahalath the daughter of Jerimoth the son of David, and of Abihail the daughter of Eliab the son of Jesse


and she bore him sons: Jeush, and Shemariah, and Zaham


And after her he took Maacah the daughter of Absalom; and she bore him Abijah, and Attai, and Ziza, and Shelomith


And Rehoboam loved Maacah the daughter of Absalom above all his wives and his concubines--for he took eighteen wives, and threescore concubines, and begot twenty and eight sons and threescore daughters


And Rehoboam appointed Abijah the son of Maacah to be chief, even the prince among his brethren; for he was minded to make him king


And he dealt wisely, and dispersed of all his sons throughout all the lands of Judah and Benjamin, unto every fortified city; and he gave them victual in abundance. And he sought for them many wives
