SEV Biblia, Chapter 11:40 Procuró por tanto Salomón matar a Jeroboam, pero se levantó Jeroboam y huyó a Egipto, a Sisac rey de Egipto, y estuvo en Egipto hasta la muerte de Salomón.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Kings 11:40 Verse 40. Sought-to kill Jeroboam.] He thought by this means to prevent the punishment due to his crimes.
Unto Shishak king of Egypt] This is the first time we meet with the proper name of an Egyptian king, Pharaoh being the common name for all the sovereigns of that country. Some suppose that this Shishak was the Sesostris so renowned for his wars and his conquests. But it is likely that this king lived long before Solomon's time.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 40. Solomon sought therefore to kill Jeroboam , etc.] Which is another instance of his folly, to seek to detest the counsel of God, when he himself was assured by the Lord the kingdom should be rent, and given to his servant, ( 1 Kings 11:11) and especially if he was informed of what passed between Ahijah and Jeroboam, as it should seem by this he was; either through Ahijah’s making no secret of it, or through Jeroboam not being able to keep his own counsel, or through the report of the servants what they saw done, ( 1 Kings 11:29), which Solomon would easily understand: and Jeroboam arose and fled into Egypt ; the common sanctuary of persons in distress in those days: unto Shishak king of Egypt ; either the father in law or the brother in law of Solomon, or one of another family, on whom the kingdom devolved; and who might not have any good respect for Solomon, and therefore Jeroboam thought himself safe with him: this is the only king of Egypt, in Scripture, that is called by his own name, and not Pharaoh; he is generally supposed to be the same with the Sesostris of Herodotus f295 , and the Vexoris or Vexosis of Justin f296 ; and the rather he may be meant, since, according to Herodotus f297 , he was the only king of Egypt that ruled over the Ethiopians: and Strabo says he was the first that subdued Ethiopia and the country of the Troglodytes; also Diodorus Siculus affirms f299 , that he fought with the Ethiopians dwelling to the south, and obliged them to pay tribute; out of which countries Shishak brought many with him in his expedition against Jerusalem, ( 2 Chronicles 12:2,3) and was in Egypt until the death of Solomon ; not daring to return till that time, and then he did.
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?
