    VERSE (18) -
    1Ki 4:6; 5:14

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 12:18

    Y el rey Roboam envió a Adoram, que estaba sobre los tributos; pero le apedreó todo Israel, y murió. Entonces el rey Roboam se esforzó a subir en un carro, y huir a Jerusalén.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Kings 12:18

    Verse 18. King Rehoboam sent Adoram] As this was the person who was superintendent
    over the tribute, he was probably sent to collect the ordinary taxes; but the people, indignant at the master who had given them such a brutish answer, stoned the servant to death. The sending of Adoram to collect the taxes, when the public mind was in such a state of fermentation, was another proof of Rehoboam's folly and incapacity to govern.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 18. Then King Rehoboam sent Adoram, who was
    over the tribute , etc.] There was one of this name in this office in the time of David, ( Samuel 20:24), this is the same with Adoniram, as Jarchi thinks, (see Kings 4:6), him he sent either to collect the tribute of the Ephraimites, to show his authority; or rather to call the people back to have some further discourse with them, and endeavour to soften things, and bring them to a compliance, so Josephus f311 ; but it was too late, and he employed a very improper person; the heavy taxes were their complaint, and a tax gatherer, and especially one that was at the head of the tribute, must be of all men the most disagreeable to them; this is another instance of the folly and false steps of Rehoboam: and all Israel stoned him with stones, that he died ; the populace fell upon him at once, and stoned him to death; and which, though contrary to law and justice, was approved of and applauded by their principal men and all the people; so irritated and provoked were they by Rehoboam’s answer to them. Hottinger says, this man was buried in Shechem, which is very probable; but it is not expressed here, as he suggests it is; however, a grave stone, found A. D. 1480, in Spain, with this inscription, is not genuine, “this is the grave of Adoniram, a servant of King Solomon, who came to collect tribute, and died such a day:” therefore King Rehoboam made speed to get him up to his chariot, to flee to Jerusalem ; from Shechem, fearing they would treat him in the same manner in their rage and fury; his courage was now cooled, and his haughty and hectoring spirit was now brought down, and he was glad to make use of his chariot for flight; this is the first time we read of a king of Israel riding in a chariot; though before of Sisera, a Canaanitish captain, and that only in a chariot of war.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 16-24 - The people speak unbecomingly of
    David. How soon are good men, an their good services to the public, forgotten ! These consideration should reconcile us to our losses and troubles, that God is the Autho of them, and our brethren the instruments: let us not meditate revenge Rehoboam and his people hearkened to the word of the Lord. When we know God's mind, we must submit, how much soever it crosses our own mind. I we secure the favour of God, not all the universe can hurt us.
