Of the death of Solomon, and of the
meeting of the Israelites at Shechem:
(for he was fled from the presence of King Solomon;
see (1 Kings 11:40)
and Jeroboam dwelt in Egypt;)
until the death of Solomon; some render
the words, "Jeroboam, returned out of Egypt" F4, which agrees with

sent for by some of his friends, as follows.
F4 (Myrumb-bvyw) "reversus est de Aegypto", V. L. Ex Egypto, (b)
