1 Kings 11:14; 1 Kings 11:17; 1 Kings 11:19; 1 Kings 11:21; 1 Kings 11:25
Then the LORD raised up against Solomon an adversary, Hadad the Edomite, from the royal line of Edom.
But Hadad, still only a boy, fled to Egypt with some Edomite officials who had served his father.
Pharaoh was so pleased with Hadad that he gave him a sister of his own wife, Queen Tahpenes, in marriage.
While he was in Egypt, Hadad heard that David rested with his fathers and that Joab the commander of the army was also dead. Then Hadad said to Pharaoh, "Let me go, that I may return to my own country."
Rezon was Israel's adversary as long as Solomon lived, adding to the trouble caused by Hadad. So Rezon ruled in Aram and was hostile toward Israel.
