Solomon's Wisdom and Phower were not sufficient to prevent the rebellion of several of his border cities.. Damascus under Rezon secured its independence of Solomon; and Jeroboam, a superintendent of works, his ambition stirred by the Words of the Prophet Ahijah (I Kings xi. 29-40), fled to Egypt.. Thus before the darth of Solomon the apparently unified kingdom of David began to disintegrate.. With Damascus independent and a powerful man of Ephraim, the most prominent of the 10 Tribes, awaiting his opportunity, the future of Solomon's kingdom became dubious...
