Wherefore the Lord said unto Solomon
Not in a vision, as before, but by a prophet; the Jews say F14, Ahijah the Shilonite, which is probable, see ( 1 Kings 11:29 )
forasmuch as this is done of thee, that thou hast not kept my covenant
and my statutes which I have commanded thee;
but broke them by his idolatry:
I will surely rend the kingdom from thee, and I will give it to thy
meaning Jeroboam, who was not only a subject, but in office under him, ( 1 Kings 11:26 1 Kings 11:28 ) .
