(9) So Shishak king of Egypt came up against Jerusalem.--The narrative is resumed after the parenthesis relating to Shemaiah by repeating the statement of 2Chronicles 12:2.

And took away the treasures of the house of the Lord.--See 1Kings 14:26, with which the rest of this verse is identical.

Verse 9. - Words do not tell in this verse the "humbled service" of Rehoboam and the princes; but the position speaks, speaks volumes of itself. Where did Rehoboam hide himself, where would he not have been glad to hide himself, while the treasures of the house of the Lord, and those of his own house, were coolly taken by the foreign soldiery, none forbidding them, nor resisting, nor even making afraid?
