1 Kings 15:1-8 GNT

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
