2 Chronicles 11:1-4. Shemaiah Restrains Rehoboam from Attacking Jeroboam (see notes on 1 Kings 12:21-24).—The variations between the two records are unimportant.
2 Chronicles 11:5-23. Rehoboam Establishes himself in Jerusalem.—There is nothing corresponding to this section in 1 K.
2 Chronicles 11:5-12. Rehoboam's cities of defence. Although these are not enumerated in 1 K. there is no reason to doubt that the Chronicler got the list of them from an authentic source.
2 Chronicles 11:13-17. This account of how the priests and Levites joined Rehoboam was probably inserted by the Chronicler, who would naturally assume that Yahweh's ministers would follow Rehoboam as king of Judah.
2 Chronicles 11:18-23. These details of Rehoboam's wives and family probably come from some reliable source; they are not given in 1 K.
