Chapter 10

Chapter Overview

The people request Rehoboam to ease their grievances, verse 1-5.
Rehoboam rejecting the old mens counsel, by the advice of the young men answers them roughly, verse 6-15.
Ten tribes revolt, verse 16-19.

Verse 4
Grievous - It is probable, when Solomon had declined from God, that God left him to himself to act thus impolitically.

Verse 7
If thou be kind, &c. - Moderate counsels are generally best. Gentleness will do what violence will not do. Good words cost nothing but a little self-denial, and yet they purchase great things.

Verse 16
See to thine own house|-When public affairs are in a ferment, violent proceedings do but make ill worse. Many have been driven to the mischief they did not intend, by being too severely dealt with.
