NAS 1 When the kingdom of Rehoboam was established and strong, he and all Israel with him forsook the law of the LORD . NIV 1 After Rehoboam’s position as king was established and he had become strong, he and all Israel with him abandoned the law of the LORD. NAS 2 And it came about in King Rehoboam's fifth year, because they had been unfaithful to the LORD , that Shishak king of Egypt came up against Jerusalem NIV 2 Because they had been unfaithful to the LORD, Shishak king of Egypt attacked Jerusalem in the fifth year of King Rehoboam. NAS 3 with 1,200 chariots and 60,000 horsemen. And the people who came with him from Egypt were without number: the Lubim, the Sukkiim and the Ethiopians.

NAS 5 Then Shemaiah the prophet came to Rehoboam and the princes of Judah who had gathered at Jerusalem because of Shishak, and he said to them, "Thus says the LORD , 'You have forsaken Me, so I also have forsaken you to Shishak.' " NIV 5 Then the prophet Shemaiah came to Rehoboam and to the leaders of Judah who had assembled in Jerusalem for fear of Shishak, and he said to them, “This is what the LORD says, ‘You have abandoned me; therefore, I now abandon you to Shishak.’ ” NAS 6 So the princes of Israel and the king humbled themselves and said, "The LORD is righteous." NIV 6 The leaders of Israel and the king humbled themselves and said, “The LORD is just.” NAS 7 When the LORD saw that they humbled themselves, the word of the LORD came to Shemaiah, saying, "They have humbled themselves so I will not destroy them, but I will grant them some measure of deliverance, and My wrath shall not be poured out on Jerusalem by means of Shishak. NIV 7 When the LORD saw that they humbled themselves, this word of the LORD came to Shemaiah: “Since they have humbled themselves, I will not destroy them but will soon give them deliverance. My wrath will not be poured out on Jerusalem through Shishak. NAS 8 "But they will become his slaves so that they may learn the difference between My service and the service of the kingdoms of the countries." NIV 8 They will, however, become subject to him, so that they may learn the difference between serving me and serving the kings of other lands.” NAS 9 So Shishak king of Egypt came up against Jerusalem, and took the treasures of the house of the LORD and the treasures of the king's palace. He took everything; he even took the golden shields which Solomon had made. NIV 9 When Shishak king of Egypt attacked Jerusalem, he carried off the treasures of the temple of the LORD and the treasures of the royal palace. He took everything, including the gold shields Solomon had made.

NIV 11 Whenever the king went to the LORD’s temple, the guards went with him, bearing the shields, and afterward they returned them to the guardroom. NAS 12 And when he humbled himself, the anger of the LORD turned away from him, so as not to destroy him completely; and also conditions were good in Judah. NIV 12 Because Rehoboam humbled himself, the LORD’s anger turned from him, and he was not totally destroyed. Indeed, there was some good in Judah. NAS 13 So King Rehoboam strengthened himself in Jerusalem and reigned.
