Turns King Roles
to Rehoboam Who Succeeds
Solomon, The Old
Turns king roles over to the new "Solomon is Davids son, and David was my chosen leader, who did what I commanded. So I will let Solomon be king until he dies. Then I will give you ten tribes to rule, but Solomons son will still rule one tribe.
This way, my servant David
will always have a descendant ruling in Jerusalem, the city where I have chosen to be worshiped.
"You will be king of Israel and will rule every nation you want. Ill help you if you obey me. And if you do what I say, as my servant David did, I will always let someone from your family rule in Israel, just as someone from Davids family will always rule in Judah. The nation of Israel will be yours. "I will punish the descendants of David, but not forever.

Everything else Solomon did while he was king is written in the book about him and his wisdom.
After he had ruled forty years from Jerusalem, he died and was buried there in the city of his father David. His son Rehoboam then became king. 1 Kings 11:34-43
