1 Kings 11:11-13

11Therefore the Lord said to Solomon, “Since this has been your practice and you have not kept my covenant and my statutes that I have commanded you, aI will surely tear the kingdom from you and will give it to your servant. 12Yet for the sake of David your father I will not do it in your days, but I will tear it out of the hand of your son. 13However, bI will not tear away all the kingdom, but cI will give one tribe to your son, for the sake of David my servant and for the sake of Jerusalem dthat I have chosen.”
