Excerpt from The Juvenile Instructor, Vol. 19: Organ for Young Latter-Day Saints; November 15, 1884 After a reign of seventeen years Rehoboam was succeeded on the throne of Judah by Abijah, his son (b. C. Who immediately raised a great force to subdue the kingdom of Israel. Jeroboam at the head of the ten tribes had the advantage of numbers, likewise of military skill; but Abijah, though with fewer numbers, had the religious feelings of the people. Jeroboam was defeated with the loss of men. Still the Israelites could not be brought back to their former allegiance. At the time of the revolt Jeroboam, finding himself at the head of the larger portion of the nation, began to fear that his subjects would return to their allegiance if they continued to go up to Jerusalem to worship at the temple. He there fore erected two idols, one in Bethel and the other in Dan, and before these he commanded the people to assemble instead of going up to Jerusalem. This was the introduction of a corruption into the Israelitish kingdom from which it never recovered. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
