1 Kings 15:1-8

1 Abijam began to rule over Judah in the eighteenth year of Jeroboam’s reign in Israel.
2 He reigned in Jerusalem three years. His mother was Maacah, the granddaughter of Absalom.
3 He committed the same sins as his father before him, and he was not faithful to the LORD his God, as his ancestor David had been.
4 But for David’s sake, the LORD his God allowed his descendants to continue ruling, shining like a lamp, and he gave Abijam a son to rule after him in Jerusalem.
5 For David had done what was pleasing in the LORD ’s sight and had obeyed the LORD ’s commands throughout his life, except in the affair concerning Uriah the Hittite.
6 There was war between Abijam and Jeroboam throughout Abijam’s reign.
7 The rest of the events in Abijam’s reign and everything he did are recorded in There was constant war between Abijam and Jeroboam.
8 When Abijam died, he was buried in the City of David. Then his son Asa became the next king.
