SEV Biblia, Chapter 11:28 Y el varón Jeroboam era valiente y esforzado; y viendo Salomón al joven que era hombre activo, le encomendó todo el cargo de la casa de José.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 28. And the man Jeroboam was a mighty man of valour , etc.] A man of great strength of body, and fortitude of mind: and Solomon seeing the young man that he was industrious ; in what he was set about in the above buildings and repairs: he made him ruler over all the charge of the house of Joseph ; the tribes of Ephraim and Manasseh, to be a prince or a deputy governor of them; or rather to collect the king’s tax from them, or the revenues of that part of the country, (see Proverbs 22:29).
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 26-40 - In telling the reason why God rent the kingdom from the house of Solomon, Ahijah warned Jeroboam to take heed of sinning away his preferment. Yet the house of David must be supported; out of it the Messiah would arise. Solomon sought to kill his successor. Had not he taught others, that whatever devices are in men's hearts, the counse of the Lord shall stand? Yet he himself thinks to defeat that counsel Jeroboam withdrew into Egypt, and was content to live in exile an obscurity for awhile, being sure of a kingdom at last. Shall not we be content, who have a better kingdom in reserve?
