King Shishak

Updated: Jan 13, 2023

1 Chronicles 12:1-"Now it came to pass when Rehoboam had established the kingdom and had strengthened himself, that he forsook the law of the Lord and all Israel along with him."

Shishak, king of Egypt, invaded the land because they forsook the Lord. 

Once upon a time there lived King Shishak

Shishak was shady and wanted to attack

Shemaiah said Shishak was more than a talker

So when Shishak showed up it wasn't a shocker

Israel had slipped and fallen short 

Shishak took supplies from their fort

Sharp Shishak came from his own shack

Shifty Shishak shoved spoils in his sack

So Shishak shunned them and stole their gold 

Shields of bronze Israel would behold 

What Solomon supplied Shishak took

In the shadow of Shishak Israel shook

Shishak did not shy away from his day to shine

Israel couldn't shoot back and say hey that's mine

No use in singing and blowing a shofar

When Shishak came he was the star

Shemaiah said Shishak came in their shame

Shishak showed up because of Israel's game
