1 Kings 11:31

11:31 Take for yourself ten pieces. On behalf of the Lord, Ahijah summons Jeroboam to take ten of the twelve pieces, symbolizing the ten northern tribes over which Jeroboam will shortly become king. As with the earlier rebellions of Hadad and Rezon, Jeroboam’s insurrection is a divine judgment against Solomon.
