Shishak I

#NAME? "success, and a record of his wars and conquests adorns the" "portico of what are called the "Bubastite kings" at Karnak, the" ancient Thebes. Among these conquests is a record of that of Judea. In the fifth year of Rehoboam's reign Shishak came up against the kingdom of Judah with a powerful army. He took the fenced cities and came to Jerusalem. He pillaged the treasures "of the temple and of the royal palace, and carried away the" shields of gold which Solomon had made (1 Kings 11:40; 14:25; 2 Chr. 12:2). (See [583]REHOBOAM.) This expedition of the Egyptian king was undertaken at the instigation of Jeroboam for the purpose of humbling Judah. Hostilities between the two kingdoms still continued; but during Rehoboam's reign there was not again the intervention of a third party.
