Quick Reference

Son of Solomon. He succeeded to the throne but of Judah only because the northern tribes rejected Rehoboam's proposed tax increases and accepted Jeroboam as king. He reigned probably from 926 to 910bce, and in 920 failed to repel an Egyptian invasion (1 Kgs. 14: 25–8); this the Chronicler regarded as divine judgement on his disloyalty to Yahweh (2 Chron. 12: 5).
