2. Son of Jeroboam, the first king of Israel. He died young, and much beloved and lamented, for in him there was found some good thing towards the Lord, 1 Kings 14:1-18

3. Son of Rehoboam, the first king of Judah; called in, 1 Kings 22:53 , Abijam. He came to the throne A.M. 3046, and reigned only three years.
