They also set up for themselves high places, sacred stones1 and Asherah poles2 on every high hill and under every spreading tree.324
There were even male shrine prostitutes4 in the land; the people engaged in all the detestable5 practices of the nations the LORD had driven out before the Israelites.
In the fifth year of King Rehoboam, Shishak king of Egypt attacked6 Jerusalem.
He carried off the treasures of the temple7 of the LORD and the treasures of the royal palace. He took everything, including all the gold shields8 Solomon had made.
So King Rehoboam made bronze shields to replace them and assigned these to the commanders of the guard on duty at the entrance to the royal palace.928
Whenever the king went to the LORD's temple, the guards bore the shields, and afterward they returned them to the guardroom.
As for the other events of Rehoboam's reign, and all he did, are they not written in the book of the annals of the kings of Judah?
