SEV Biblia, Chapter 11:29 Aconteció, pues, en aquel tiempo, que saliendo Jeroboam de Jerusalén, le encontró en el camino el profeta Ahías silonita; y él estaba cubierto con una capa nueva; y estaban ellos dos solos en el campo.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Kings 11:29 Verse 29. When Jeroboam went out of Jerusalem] On what errand he was going out of Jerusalem, we know not.
Ahijah the Shilonite] He was one of those who wrote the history of the reign of Solomon, as we find from 2 Chron. ix. 29, and it is supposed that it was by him God spake twice to Solomon; and particularly delivered the message which we find in this chapter, 1 Kings xi. 11-13.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 29. And it came to pass at that time, when Jeroboam went out of Jerusalem , etc.] Either to enter upon his new office: or having been with Solomon to pay in the revenues, and to make up his accounts with him was going back to the country to do the duty of his office: that the prophet Ahijah the Shilonite found him in the way ; not accidentally, but purposely was in the way to meet him, and converse with him; this prophet was of the city of Shiloh, and where was now his abode, (see 1 Kings 14:2) and he had clad himself with a new garment ; not Jeroboam, but the prophet, and that by the direction of the Lord, for the following purpose: and they two were alone in the field : it is possible Jeroboam might have some servants with him; but Ahijah desiring some private conversation with him, he sent them onwards, or bid them stay at some distance; who yet might be capable of observing what was done, though not of hearing what was said; or otherwise how should Solomon come to the knowledge of it? ( 1 Kings 11:40).
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?
