Israel Divided

Watering the Garden

And the LORD was angry with Solomon, because his heart was turned from the LORD God of Israel, which had appeared unto him twice, And had commanded him concerning this thing, that he should not go after other gods: but he kept not that which the LORD commanded. Wherefore the LORD said unto Solomon, Forasmuch as this is done of thee, and thou hast not kept my covenant and my statutes, which I have commanded thee, I will surely rend the kingdom from thee, and will give it to thy servant. Notwithstanding in thy days I will not do it for David thy father’s sake: but I will rend it out of the hand of thy son. Howbeit I will not rend away all the kingdom; but will give one tribe to thy son for David my servant’s sake, and for Jerusalem’s sake which I have chosen. (1st Kings 9:9-13)

So Israel rebelled against the house of David unto this day. (1st Kings 12:19)

And when all Israel saw that the king would not hearken unto them, the people answered the king, saying, What portion have we in David? and we have none inheritance in the son of Jesse: every man to your tents, O Israel: and now, David, see to thine own house. So all Israel went to their tents. (2nd Chronicles 10:16)
And Israel rebelled against the house of David unto this day. (2nd Chronicles 10:19)

King Solomon, the wisest man that ever lived, after building the temple of God, took foreign wives and participated in the worship of their strange Gods. This removed God’s blessing from Solomon and God declared that he would separate Judah from the other tribes of Israel which he did.

We have learned that as a result of King Solomon’s sins the tribe of Judah was separated from the rest of Israel.

Our Father appreciates the fact that you are trying. May God’s blessing be upon this
study of His word, Amen.
