He was Rehoboam's son. His mother, Maacah (Mcaiah), was Absalom's granddaughter. There was continual war between Abijah, King of Judah, and Jeroboam, King of Israel. Abijah and his troops defeated the Northern Kingdom of Israel because they relied on the Lord, inflicting 500,000 casualties on them. Jeroboam did not regain power and the Lord struck him down. Abijah grew in strength. He had 14 wives and 22 sons and 16 daughters.
