SEV Biblia, Chapter 14:21 Â¶ Y Roboam hijo de Salomón reinó en Judá. De cuarenta y un años era Roboam cuando comenzó a reinar, y diecisiete años reinó en Jerusalén, ciudad que el SEÑOR eligió de todas las tribus de Israel para poner allí su nombre. El nombre de su madre fue Naama, amonita.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 21. And Rehoboam the son of Solomon reigned in Judah , etc.] Over the two tribes of Judah and Benjamin, when Jeroboam reigned over the other ten: Rehoboam [was] forty one years old when he began to reign ; being born one year before his father Solomon began to reign, and so it might have been expected he would have begun his reign more wisely than he did: and he reigned seventeen years in Jerusalem ; not half so long as his father and grandfather, being neither so wise nor so good a prince as either of them: the city which the Lord did choose out of all the tribes of Israel, to put his name there ; to have a temple built for him, and his worship carried on in it; which was an aggravation of the sin of Rehoboam, that he should reign in such a place, and yet be guilty of the crimes he was; the three first years he reigned well, but afterwards forsook the law of the Lord, ( 2 Chronicles 11:17 12:1) and his mother’s name was Naamah an Ammonitess ; and which is observed again, ( 1 Kings 14:31), she being the instrument of drawing him into idolatry, which it is very probable she practised in the days of Solomon, ( 1 Kings 11:5,7).
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 21-31 - Here is no good said of Rehoboam, and much said to the disadvantage of his subjects. The abounding of the worst crimes, of the worst of the heathen, in Jerusalem, the city the Lord had chosen for his temple an his worship, shows that nothing can mend the hearts of fallen men but the sanctifying grace of the Holy Spirit. On this alone may we depend for this let us daily pray, in behalf of ourselves and all around us The splendour of their temple, the pomp of their priesthood, and all the advantages with which their religion was attended, could no prevail to keep them close to it; nothing less than the pouring out the Spirit will keep God's Israel in their allegiance to him. Sin exposes makes poor, and weakens any people. Shishak, king of Egypt, came an took away the treasures. Sin makes the gold become dim, changes the most fine gold, and turns it into brass __________________________________________________________________
