For they also built for themselves high places, pillars, and sacred poles a on every high hill and under every green tree;
there were also male temple prostitutes in the land. They committed all the abominations of the nations that the Lord drove out before the people of Israel.
In the fifth year of King Rehoboam, King Shishak of Egypt came up against Jerusalem;
he took away the treasures of the house of the Lord and the treasures of the king's house; he took everything. He also took away all the shields of gold that Solomon had made;
so King Rehoboam made shields of bronze instead, and committed them to the hands of the officers of the guard, who kept the door of the king's house.
As often as the king went into the house of the Lord, the guard carried them and brought them back to the guardroom.
Now the rest of the acts of Rehoboam, and all that he did, are they not written in the Book of the Annals of the Kings of Judah?
