Chapter Summary: 1 Kings Chapter 14 Summary

1 Kings Chapter 14 Summary begins with Jeroboam’s conflict. The king had a son named Abijah who fell sick and Jeroboam tried to send his wife to the prophet Ahijah. This is the same prophet who told Jeroboam that he would be king.

The thing is, he tried to do it without revealing he was the father of the child. He sent his wife disguised as a common woman, but God already gave Ahijah the heads-up on Jeroboam’s mission. Ahijah welcomed Jeroboam’s wife, calling her by name and told her she doesn’t have to hide.

He also told her that he had bad news for her to report to Jeroboam. Ahijah informed the queen that Jeroboam has let the Lord down. The king has not walked as king David did and has gone to other gods. For this, the Lord will bring evil on the house of Jeroboam cutting his house off from reigning.

1 Kings Chapter 14 Summary

Ahijah gets pretty graphic; he continues telling her that the dogs will eat Jeroboam’s family in the city and the birds will eat them in the field. I would think she would cut him off and demand he get to the child!!  

Well, he does anyway; the child she came to ask about, Ahijah said the child will die because God has seen some good in him from the house of Jeroboam. Finally, a king will arise and cut off the house of Jeroboam.

In addition to all this, the Lord will hit Israel and uproot them out of the good land and scatter them beyond the river because of their groves and for provoking the Lord. When she left and got back to the city, the child died and they buried him.

Rehoboam’s Mother was an Ammonites

Jeroboam ruled the 10 tribes of Israel known as Samaria for 22 years before dying and his son Nadab took over. The chapter switches over to the kingdom of Judah with Rehoboam, the son of Solomon. He began his rule at age 41 and ruled 17 years in Jerusalem.

His mother was an Ammonites, and the report is that Judah did evil in the sight of the Lord. They built high places, images, groves, and had sodomites in the land doing every abomination the nations before them! Yes, the same abominations God threw those nations out of the land for.

In Rehoboam’s fifth year, Shishak the king of Egypt came up and warred with him, taking away treasures from the house of the Lord. Rehoboam died, all through his rulership, he warred with Jeroboam. They don’t sound like good kings. This is the summary of 1 Kings chapter 14.
