Additional Links

Rehoboam (rç-ho-bô'am), enlarges the people. The son and successor of Solomon. He reigned 17 years, b.c. 975-958. His insolent conduct hastened the political crisis which resulted in the division of the Hebrew kingdom into the two kingdoms of Judah and Israel. 1 Kings 12:21-24; 1 Kings 14:21; 1 Kings 14:31; 2 Chronicles 10:1-14. Within five years of Rehoboam's accession to the throne, the kingdom of Judah was invaded by Shishak, king of Egypt, who desolated the country, and made it tributary to Egypt, and Shishak's victory is noted in the great temple at Karnak.
