1 Kings 15:1-8 (Good News Translation)

View In My Bible
1 In the eighteenth year of the reign of King Jeroboam of Israel, Abijah became king of Judah, 2 and he ruled three years in Jerusalem. His mother was Maacah, the daughter of Absalom. 3 He committed the same sins as his father and was not completely loyal to the Lord his God, as his great-grandfather David had been. 4 But for David's sake the Lord his God gave Abijah a son to rule after him in Jerusalem and to keep Jerusalem secure. 1 5 The Lord did this because David had done what pleased him and had never disobeyed any of his commands, except in the case of Uriah the Hittite. 2 6 The war which had begun between Rehoboam and Jeroboam continued throughout Abijah's lifetime. 3 7 And everything else that Abijah did is recorded in [The History of the Kings of Judah.] 8 Abijah died and was buried in David's City, and his son Asa succeeded him as king.
