26 He took the treasures from the Lord’s Temple and from the king’s palace. He even took the gold shields that David had taken from the officers of King Hadadezer of Aram and put on the walls of Jerusalem.[a] 27 King Rehoboam made more shields to put in their places, but they were made from bronze.

After they were finished, they put the shields back on the wall in the guardroom.
