The Kings of IeShRaEL

Shaul was the first king of IeShRaEL but he was disobedient to IaHUeH so IaHUeH chose Dauid instead. Dauid reigned over IeShRaEL for forty years, then his son Shelomoh became king.

First Kings CHAPTER 11 But king Shelomoh loved many strange women, together with the daughter of Pharaoh, women of the Moabites, Ammonites, Edomites, Zidonians, and Hittites;
Of the nations concerning which IaHUeH said unto the children of Ieshrael, Ye shall not go in to them, neither shall they come in unto you: for surely they will turn away your heart after their "mighty ones": Shelomoh clave unto these in love.
And he had seven hundred wives, princesses, and three hundred concubines: and his wives turned away his heart.
For it came to pass, when Shelomoh was old, that his wives turned away his heart after other "mighty ones": and his heart was not perfect with IaHUeH his Elohim, as was the heart of Dauid his father.
For Shelomoh went after Ashtoreth the (female) "mighty one" of the Zidonians, and after Milcom the abomination of the Ammonites.
And Shelomoh did evil in the sight of IaHUeH, and went not fully after IaHUeH, as did Dauid his father.
Then did Shelomoh build an high place for Chemosh, the abomination of Moab, in the hill that is before Ierushalem, and for Molech, the abomination of the children of Ammon.
And likewise did he for all his strange wives, which burnt incense and sacrificed unto their "mighty ones".
And IaHUeH was angry with Shelomoh, because his heart was turned from IaHUeH Elohim of Ieshrael, which had appeared unto him twice,
And had commanded him concerning this thing, that he should not go after other "mighty ones": but he kept not that which IaHUeH commanded.
Wherefore IaHUeH said unto Shelomoh, Forasmuch as this is done of thee, and thou hast not kept My covenant and My statutes, which I have commanded thee, I will surely rend the kingdom from thee, and will give it to thy servant.
Notwithstanding in thy days I will not do it for Dauid thy father's sake: but I will rend it out of the hand of thy son.
Howbeit I will not rend away all the kingdom; but will give one tribe to thy son for Dauid my servant's sake, and for Ierushalem's sake which I have chosen.

14 And IaHUeH stirred up an adversary unto Shelomoh, Hadad the Edomite: he was of the king's seed in Edom.
23 And Elohim stirred him up another adversary, Rezon the son of Eliadah, which fled from his master Hadadezer king of Zobah:

26 And Iarob'am the son of Nebat, an Ephrathite of Zereda, Shelomoh's servant, whose mother's name was Zeruah, a widow woman, even he lifted up his hand against the king.
And this was the cause that he lifted up his hand against the king: Shelomoh built Millo, and repaired the breaches of the city of Dauid his father.

And the man Iarob'am was a mighty man of valour: and Shelomoh seeing the young man that he was industrious, he made him ruler over all the charge of the house of Ioseph.
And it came to pass at that time when Iarob'am went out of Ierushalem, that the prophet Achiiahu the Shilonite found him in the way; and he had clad himself with a new garment; and they two were alone in the field:
And Achiiahu caught the new garment that was on him, and rent it in twelve pieces:
And he said to Iarob'am, Take thee ten pieces: for thus saith IaHUeH, the Elohim of Ieshrael, Behold, I will rend the kingdom out of the hand of Shelomoh, and will give ten tribes to thee:
(But he shall have one tribe for My servant Dauid's sake, and for Ierushalem's sake, the city which I have chosen out of all the tribes of Ieshrael:)
Because that they have forsaken Me, and have worshipped Ashtoreth the (female) "mighty one" of the Zidonians, Chemosh the "mighty one" of the Moabites, and Milcom the "mighty one" of the children of Ammon, and have not walked in My ways, to do that which is right in mine eyes, and to keep My statutes and my judgments, as did Dauid his father.
Howbeit I will not take the whole kingdom out of his hand: but I will make him prince all the days of his life for Dauid My servant's sake, whom I chose, because he kept My commandments and My statutes:
But I will take the kingdom out of his son's hand, and will give it unto thee,
even ten tribes.
And unto his son will I give one tribe, that Dauid my servant may have a light always before Me in Ierushalem, the city which I have chosen Me to put My name there.
And I will take thee, and thou shalt reign according to all that thy soul desireth, and shalt be king of Ieshrael.
And it shall be, if thou wilt hearken unto all that I command thee, and wilt walk in My ways, and do that which is right in My sight, to keep My statutes and My commandments, as Dauid My servant did; that I will be with thee, and build thee a sure house, as I built for Dauid, and will give Ieshrael unto thee.
And I will for this afflict the seed of Dauid, but not for ever.

Shelomoh sought therefore to kill Iarob'am. And Iarob'am arose, and fled into Egypt, unto Shishak king of Egypt, and was in Egypt until the death of Shelomoh.
And the rest of the acts of Shelomoh, and all that he did, and his wisdom, are they not written in the book of the acts of Shelomoh?
And the time that Shelomoh reigned in Ierushalem over all Ieshrael was forty years.
And Shelomoh slept with his fathers, and was buried in the city of Dauid his father: and Rechab'am his son reigned in his stead.
Second Chronicles Chapter Twelve 1-8 And it came to pass, when Rechab'am had established the kingdom, and had strengthened himself, he forsook the law of IaHUeH, and all Ieshrael with him.
And it came to pass, that in the fifth year of king Rechab'am Shishak king of Egypt came up against Ierushalem, because they had transgressed against IaHUeH,
With twelve hundred chariots, and threescore thousand horsemen: and the people were without number that came with him out of Egypt; the Lubim, the Sukkiim, and the Ethiopians.
And he took the fenced cities which pertained to Iahudah, and came to Ierushalem.

Then came Shemaiahu the prophet to Rechab'am, and to the princes of Iahudah, that were gathered together to Ierushalem because of Shishak, and said unto them, Thus saith IaHUeH, Ye have forsaken Me, and therefore have I also left you in the hand of Shishak.
Whereupon the princes of Ieshrael and the king humbled themselves; and they said,
IaHUeH is righteous.
And when IaHUeH saw that they humbled themselves, the word of IaHUeH came to Shema-iahu, saying, They have humbled themselves; therefore I will not destroy them, but I will grant them some deliverance; and My wrath shall not be poured out upon Ierushalem by the hand of Shishak.
Nevertheless they shall be his servants; that they may know My service, and the service of the kingdoms of the countries.

There is a difference!
So.. IaHuDaH and BeNIaMIN became a tributary to Egypt because they disobeyed IaHUeH. Meanwhile their brothers, the kingdom of IeShRaEL also disobeyed.

First Kings 12:25-13:5 Then Iarob'am built Shechem in mount Ephraim, and dwelt therein; and went out from thence, and built Penuel.
And Iarob'am said in his heart, Now shall the kingdom return to the house of Dauid:
If this people go up to make offerings in the house of IaHUeH at Ierushalem, then shall the heart of this people turn again unto their master, even unto king of Iahudah, and they shall kill me, and go again to Rechab'am king of Iahudah.
Whereupon the king took counsel, and made two calves of gold, and said unto them, It is too much for you to go up to Ierushalem: behold thy "mighty ones", O Ieshrael, which brought thee up out of the land of Egypt.
And he set the one in Bethel, and the other put he in Dan.
And this thing became a sin: for the people went to worship before the one, even unto Dan.

And he made an house of high places, and made priests of the lowest of the people, which were not of the sons of Leui.
And Iarob'am ordained a feast in the eighth month, on the fifteenth day of the month, like unto the feast that is in Iahudah, and he offered upon the altar. So did he in Bethel, sacrificing unto the calves that he had made: and he placed in Bethel the priests of the high places which he had made.
So he offered upon the altar which he had made in Bethel the fifteenth day of the eighth month, even in the month which he had devised of his own heart; and ordained a feast unto the children of Ieshrael: and he offered upon the altar, and burnt incense.

And, behold, there came a man of Elohim out of Iahudah by the word of IaHUeH unto Bethel: and Iarob'am stood by the altar to burn incense.
And he cried against the altar in the word of IaHUeH, and said, O altar, altar, thus saith IaHUeH;
Behold, a child shall be born unto the house of Dauid, Iosheiahu by name; and upon thee shall he offer the priests of the high places that burn incense upon thee, and men's bones shall be burnt upon thee.
And he gave a sign the same day, saying, This is the sign which IaHUeH hath spoken; Behold, the altar shall be rent, and the ashes that are upon it shall be poured out.
And it came to pass, when king Iarob'am heard the saying of the man of Elohim, which had cried against the altar in Bethel, that he put forth his hand from the altar, saying, Lay hold on him. And his hand, which he put forth against him, dried up, so that he could not pull it in again to him.
The altar also was rent, and the ashes poured out from the altar, according to the sign which the man of Elohim had given by the word of IaHUeH.
