LESSON I. THE KINGDOM DIVIDED.–1 Kings xii, 12-20. [About 975 B, C.

RECITE V8. 16, 17. 12 So Jeroboam and all the people came to Rehoboam the third

day, as the king had appointed, saying, Come to me again the 13 third day. And the king answered the people roughly, and for14 sook the old men's counsel that they gave him ; | And spake to

them after the counsel of the young men, saying, My father made your yoke heavy, and I will add to your yoke: diy father also chastised you with whips, but I will chastise you with scor

pions. 15 Wherefore the king hearkened not unto the people ; for the

cause was from the LORD, that he might perform his saying,

which the LORD spake by Ahijah the Shilonite unto Jeroboam 16 the son of Nebat. So when all Israel saw that the

king hearkened not unto them, the people answered the king, saying, What portion have wo in David ? neither have we inheritance in the son of Jesse: to your tents, O Israel: now see to thine

own house, David. Só Israel departed unto their 17 tents. | But as for the children of Israel which

dwelt in the cities of Judah, Rehoboam reigned

over them. 18 Then king Rehoboam sent Adoram, who was over the tribute;

and all Israel stoned him with stones, that he died. Therefore

king Rehoboam made speed to get him up to his chariot, to flee 19 to Jerusalem. | So Israel rebelled against the house of David

unto this day. 20 And it came to pass, when all Israel heard that Jeroboam was

come again, that they sent and called him unto the congregation, and made him king over all Israel; there was none that followed the house of David, but the tribe of Judah only.

CONNECTED HISTORY.-Our last lesson in Old Testament history closed with the reign and writings of Solomon. (See Hand-hook, Part VI., pp. 24, 38.) After the visit of the queen of Sheba, Solomon fell into many great sins-marrying heathen wives, the worship of falso gods, building idolatrous temples. Because of these Bins many enemies troubled Solomon, and God told him that his kingdom would be divided. Solomon died in the fortieth year of his reign at Jerusalem, Rehoboam succeeded him as king.

ORDER OF EVENTS.—(46.) Solomon's idolatry and death. (47.) The kingdom divided.

TO THE SCHOLAR.-Recall the beginning of the kingdom under Saul, and some of the important events during the reign of Saul, of David, and of Sol. omon. Read 1 Kings xi., and notice the judgment which the Lord said be would bring upon Solomon, and its fulfilment.

NOTES.-Jer-o-bo'-am, son of Nebat of Zerada, and tribe of Ephraim (1 Kings xi. 26); made a collector of taxes by Solomon (xi. 28), and promised the rule of the ten tribes by Ahijah the prophet (xi. 29-39); fed to Egypt; returned; made king over the ten tribes on their rebellion against Rehoboam; notorious for Jead. ing the people into idolatry; reigned twenty-two years (975-954 B.C.).—Re-ho-bo-am, son and successor of Solomon; unwisely denied the petition of the people, which led to rebellion and a division of the kingdom; king over Judah and Benjamin only; plundered tho temple to purchase peace with Shishak king of Egypt; reigned seventeen years (975-958).-A-hi'-jah of Shiloh, a prophet; only two of his prophecies are recorded—that to Jeroboam (1 Kings xi. 31), and to Jeroboam's wife (xiv. 6). He wrote some account of Solomon's reigo. 2 Chron. ix. 29.-David. (See Hand-book, Part V.) -A-do-ram, a collector of taxes, probably the same as Adoniram (1 Kings iv. 6) and Hadoram (2 Sam. xx. 24) during the reign of David and Solomon. Some think there were three persons-Adoram under David, Adoniram under Solomon, and Adoram II. under Rehoboam; but this seems less probable, as forty-seven years covers all these events, The Greek, Syriac, and Arabic versions read “ Adoniram” in this text,
