This article deals with the Old Testament’s depiction of the historical developments that led to the division in Israel’s monarchy. It presents the underlying factors that destabilised the country during the lifetimes of David and Solomon as well as the power-play between Rehoboam and Jeroboam. The political developments in Lesotho are then read against these underlying factors.
