2 Chronicles 11:1
  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 again to Rehoboam.
   
2 Chronicles 11:2   But the word of Jehovah came to Shemaiah the man of God, saying,
   
2 Chronicles 11:3   Speak unto Rehoboam the son of Solomon, king of Judah, and to all Israel in Judah and Benjamin, saying,
   
2 Chronicles 11:4   Thus saith Jehovah, 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 Jehovah, and returned from going against Jeroboam.
   
2 Chronicles 11:5   And Rehoboam dwelt in Jerusalem, and built cities for defence in Judah.
   
2 Chronicles 11:6   He built Beth-lehem, and Etam, and Tekoa,
   
2 Chronicles 11:7   And Beth-zur, and Soco, and Adullam,
   
2 Chronicles 11:8   and Gath, and Mareshah, and Ziph,
   
2 Chronicles 11:9   and Adoraim, and Lachish, and Azekah,
   
2 Chronicles 11:10   and Zorah, and Aijalon, and Hebron, which are in Judah and in Benjamin, fortified cities.
   
2 Chronicles 11:11   And he fortified the strongholds, and put captains in them, and stores of victuals, and oil and wine.
   
2 Chronicles 11:12   And in every city he put shields and spears, and made them exceeding strong. And Judah and Benjamin belonged to him.
   
2 Chronicles 11:13   And the priests and the Levites that were in all Israel resorted to him out of all their border.
   
2 Chronicles 11:14   For the Levites left their suburbs 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 Jehovah;
   
2 Chronicles 11:15   and he appointed him priests for the high places, and for the he-goats, and for the calves which he had made.
   
2 Chronicles 11:16   And after them, out of all the tribes of Israel, such as set their hearts to seek Jehovah, the God of Israel, came to Jerusalem to sacrifice unto Jehovah, the God of their fathers.
   
2 Chronicles 11:17   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.
   
2 Chronicles 11:18   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;
   
2 Chronicles 11:19   and she bare him sons: Jeush, and Shemariah, and Zaham.
   
2 Chronicles 11:20   And after her he took Maacah the daughter of Absalom; and she bare him Abijah, and Attai, and Ziza, and Shelomith.
   
2 Chronicles 11:21   And Rehoboam loved Maacah the daughter of Absalom above all his wives and his concubines: (for he took eighteen wives, and threescore concubines, and begat twenty and eight sons and threescore daughters.)
   
2 Chronicles 11:22   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.
   
2 Chronicles 11:23   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 victuals in abundance. And he sought for them many wives.
