2 Chronicles 11:13 Meaning and Commentary

2 Chronicles 11:13

And the priests and the Levites, that were in all Israel
In the ten tribes, in the cities assigned to them therein:

2 Chronicles 11:13 In-Context

11 He strengthened their fortifications and put leaders in them with supplies of food, oil, and wine.
12 He also put large shields and spears in each and every city to make them very strong. So Judah and Benjamin were his.
13 The priests and Levites from all their regions throughout Israel took their stand with Rehoboam,
14 for the Levites left their pasturelands and their possessions and went to Judah and Jerusalem, because Jeroboam and his sons refused to let them serve as priests of the Lord.
15 Jeroboam appointed his own priests for the high places, the goat-demons, and the [gold] calves he had made.
