Rehoboam went to Shechem, because all the Israelites had come to Shechem to make him king.

Jeroboam, the son of Nebat, had previously fled from King Solomon to Egypt and stayed there. When he heard this, he returned from Egypt.

The Israelites sent messengers to invite him, and he and all the Israelites came to Rehoboam and said to him,

Your father made us bear a heavy yoke for hard work. Now, please make the heavy yoke easier for our hard work, and we will serve you.

Roboan said to them, come see me again on the third day. So the people went.

During the days of Solomon, the father of Rehoboam, there were elderly people standing before him. King Rehoboam consulted with them and said, ‘What advice do you give me so that I can answer this people?’.

The old man said to him, “If the king is kind to this people, please them, and answer them with good words, then they will be the king’s servants forever.”.

But the king did not use the advice given to him by the elderly, and instead consulted with the young men who grew up with him and stood before him,

And he said, This people said to me, Your father has put a heavy yoke on us, please make us lighter. What idea do you give me so that I can reply to them.

The young man who grew up with him said, ‘This people said to the king,’ Your father has put a heavy yoke on us, please make us lighter. ‘. The king wants to say to them, “My little thumb is thicker than my father’s waist.”.

My father made you bear a heavy yoke, and I will make you bear a heavier yoke. My father will whip you with a whip, and I will whip you with a scorpion.

Jeroboam and all the people followed the words of King Rehoboam, saying, “Come back to me on the third day.” And they did indeed come on the third day.

King Rehoboam replied to them with harsh words, without the advice of the elderly,

According to the advice of the young men, say to them, My father made you bear a heavy yoke, and I will make you bear a heavier yoke. My father will whip you with a whip, and I will whip you with a scorpion.

The king refused to obey the people. This thing came from God to fulfill the word that the Lord had spoken to Jeroboam the son of Nebat through Ahijah the Shilonite.

And when all the people of Israel saw that the king did not obey them, they said to the king, What part do we have with David? Not related to Jesse’s son. Go back to your own homes, O Israelites. David’s family, take care of yourself. So all the Israelites returned to their homes.

But Rehoboam remained king over the Israelites who lived in the cities of Judah.

King Rehoboam sent Hadolam, who was in charge of the people of suffering, to the Israelites, and they stoned him to death. King Rehoboam quickly got on the carriage and fled back to Jerusalem.

So the Israelites rebelled against the house of David to this day.
