Second Chronicles 12

12:1 And it came to pass, when Rehoboam had established the
 kingdom, and had strengthened himself, he forsook the law of
 the LORD, and all Israel with him.
12:2 And it came to pass, [that] in the fifth year of king
 Rehoboam, Shishak king of Egypt came up against Jerusalem,
 because they had transgressed against the LORD,
12:3 With twelve hundred chariots, and sixty thousand horsemen:
 and the people [were] without number that came with him out of
 Egypt; the Lubims, the Sukkiims, and the Cushites.
12:4 And he took the fortified cities which [pertained] to
 Judah, and came to Jerusalem.
12:5 Then came Shemaiah the prophet to Rehoboam, and [to] the
 princes of Judah, that were assembled at Jerusalem because of
 Shishak, and said to them, Thus saith the LORD, Ye have
 forsaken me, and therefore have I also left you in the hand of
12:6 Upon which the princes of Israel, and the king humbled
 themselves; and they said, The LORD [is] righteous.
12:7 And when the LORD saw that they humbled themselves, the
 word of the LORD came to Shemaiah, saying, They have humbled
 themselves; [therefore] I will not destroy them, but I will
 grant them some deliverance; and my wrath shall not be poured
 out upon Jerusalem by the hand of Shishak.
12:8 Nevertheless they shall be his servants; that they may know
 my service, and the service of the kingdoms of the countries.
12:9 So Shishak king of Egypt came up against Jerusalem, and
 took away the treasures of the house of the LORD, and the
 treasures of the king's house; he took all: he carried away
 also the shields of gold which Solomon had made.
12:10 Instead of which, king Rehoboam made shields of brass, and
 committed [them] to the hands of the chief of the guard, that
 kept the entrance of the king's house.
12:11 And when the king entered into the house of the LORD, the
 guard came and conveyed them, and brought them again into the
12:12 And when he humbled himself, the wrath of the LORD turned
 from him, that he would not destroy [him] altogether: and also
 in Judah things went well.
12:13 So king Rehoboam strengthened himself in Jerusalem, and
 reigned: for Rehoboam [was] one and forty years old when he
 began to reign, and he reigned seventeen years in Jerusalem,
 the city which the LORD had chosen out of all the tribes of
 Israel, to put his name there. And his mother's name [was]
 Naamah an Ammonitess.
12:14 And he did evil, because he prepared not his heart to seek
 the LORD.
12:15 Now the acts of Rehoboam, first and last, [are] they not
 written in the book of Shemaiah the prophet, and of Iddo the
 seer, concerning genealogies? And [there were] wars between
 Rehoboam and Jeroboam continually.
12:16 And Rehoboam slept with his fathers, and was buried in the
 city of David: and Abijah his son reigned in his stead.
