They also built for themselves high places, sacred pillars, and Asherah poles on every high hill and under every green tree;
there were even male shrine prostitutes in the land. They imitated all the abominations of the nations the Lord had dispossessed before the Israelites.
In the fifth year of King Rehoboam, Shishak king of Egypt went to war against Jerusalem.a26
He seized the treasuries of the Lord's temple and the treasuries of the royal palace. He took everything. He took all the gold shields that Solomon had made.b27
King Rehoboam made bronze shields in their place and committed them into the care of the captains of the royal escortscdwho guarded the entrance to the king's palace.
Whenever the king entered the Lord's temple, the royal escorts would carry the shields, then they would take them back to the royal escorts' armory.
The rest of the events of Rehoboam's [reign], along with all his accomplishments, are written about in the Historical Record of Judah's Kings.
