New Revised Standard (NRS) New International Version (NIV)
21 Now Rehoboam son of Solomon reigned in Judah. Rehoboam was forty-one years old when he began to reign, and he reigned seventeen years in Jerusalem, the city that the Lord had chosen out of all the tribes of Israel, to put his name there. His mother's name was Naamah the Ammonite. 21 Rehoboam son of Solomon was king in Judah. He was forty-one years old when he became king, and he reigned seventeen years in Jerusalem, the city the LORD had chosen out of all the tribes of Israel in which to put his Name. His mother's name was Naamah; she was an Ammonite.
22 Judah did what was evil in the sight of the Lord; they provoked him to jealousy with their sins that they committed, more than all that their ancestors had done. 22 Judah did evil in the eyes of the LORD. By the sins they committed they stirred up his jealous anger more than their fathers had done.
23 For they also built for themselves high places, pillars, and sacred poles on every high hill and under every green tree; 23 They also set up for themselves high places, sacred stones and Asherah poles on every high hill and under every spreading tree.
24 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. 24 There were even male shrine prostitutes in the land; the people engaged in all the detestable practices of the nations the LORD had driven out before the Israelites.
25 In the fifth year of King Rehoboam, King Shishak of Egypt came up against Jerusalem; 25 In the fifth year of King Rehoboam, Shishak king of Egypt attacked Jerusalem.
26 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; 26 He carried off the treasures of the temple of the LORD and the treasures of the royal palace. He took everything, including all the gold shields Solomon had made.
27 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. 27 So King Rehoboam made bronze shields to replace them and assigned these to the commanders of the guard on duty at the entrance to the royal palace.
28 As often as the king went into the house of the Lord, the guard carried them and brought them back to the guardroom. 28 Whenever the king went to the LORD's temple, the guards bore the shields, and afterward they returned them to the guardroom.
29 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? 29 As for the other events of Rehoboam's reign, and all he did, are they not written in the book of the annals of the kings of Judah?
30 There was war between Rehoboam and Jeroboam continually. 30 There was continual warfare between Rehoboam and Jeroboam.
31 Rehoboam slept with his ancestors and was buried with his ancestors in the city of David. His mother's name was Naamah the Ammonite. His son Abijam succeeded him. 31 And Rehoboam rested with his fathers and was buried with them in the City of David. His mother's name was Naamah; she was an Ammonite. And Abijah his son succeeded him as king.
