2 Chronicles 12

GNT 1 As soon as Rehoboam had established his authority as king, he and all his people abandoned 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. GNT 2 In the fifth year of Rehoboam's reign their disloyalty to the Lord was punished. King Shishak of Egypt attacked Jerusalem NIV 2 Because they had been unfaithful to the LORD, Shishak king of Egypt attacked Jerusalem in the fifth year of King Rehoboam. GNT 3 with an army of twelve hundred chariots, sixty thousand cavalry, and more soldiers than could be counted, including Libyan, Sukkite, and Ethiopian troops. NIV 3 With twelve hundred chariots and sixty thousand horsemen and the innumerable troops of Libyans, Sukkites and Cushites that came with him from Egypt, GNT 4 He captured the fortified cities of Judah and advanced as far as Jerusalem. NIV 4 he captured the fortified cities of Judah and came as far as Jerusalem. GNT 5 Shemaiah the prophet went to King Rehoboam and the Judean leaders who had gathered in Jerusalem to escape Shishak. He said to them, "This is the Lord's message to you: "You have abandoned me, so now I have abandoned 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.’ ” GNT 6 The king and the leaders admitted that they had sinned, and they said, "What the Lord is doing is just." NIV 6 The leaders of Israel and the king humbled themselves and said, “The LORD is just.” GNT 7 When the Lord saw this, he spoke again to Shemaiah and said to him, "Because they admit their sin, I will not destroy them. But when Shishak attacks, they will barely survive. Jerusalem will not feel the full force of my anger, 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. GNT 8 but Shishak will conquer them, and they will learn the difference between serving me and serving earthly rulers." 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.” GNT 9 King Shishak came to Jerusalem and took the treasures from the Temple and from the palace. He took everything, including the gold shields that King 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. GNT 10 To replace them, Rehoboam made bronze shields and entrusted them to the officers responsible for guarding the palace gates. NIV 10 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. GNT 11 Every time the king went to the Temple, the guards carried the shields and then returned them to the guardroom. 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. GNT 12 Because he submitted to the Lord, the Lord's anger did not completely destroy him, and things went well for 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. GNT 13 Rehoboam ruled in Jerusalem and increased his power as king. He was forty-one years old when he became king, and he ruled for seventeen years in Jerusalem, the city which the Lord had chosen from all the territory of Israel as the place where he was to be worshiped. Rehoboam's mother was Naamah, from the land of Ammon. NIV 13 King Rehoboam established himself firmly in Jerusalem and continued as king. 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. GNT 14 He did what was evil, because he did not try to find the Lord's will. NIV 14 He did evil because he had not set his heart on seeking the LORD. GNT 15 Rehoboam's acts from beginning to end and his family records are found in [The History of Shemaiah the Prophet] and [The History of Iddo the Prophet.] Rehoboam and Jeroboam were constantly at war with each other. NIV 15 As for the events of Rehoboam’s reign, from beginning to end, are they not written in the records of Shemaiah the prophet and of Iddo the seer that deal with genealogies? There was continual warfare between Rehoboam and Jeroboam. GNT 16 Rehoboam died and was buried in the royal tombs in David's City and his son Abijah succeeded him as king. NIV 16 Rehoboam rested with his ancestors and was buried in the City of David. And Abijah his son succeeded him as king.
