Hi and welcome to All God’s Women. I’m Sharon Wilharm, your host, and it’s day 15 of National Podcast Post Month.
Today we look at Maachah, which, surprisingly, there are seven Maachah’s in the Bible. But we’re going to focus in on the granddaughter of Absolom and the wife of King Rehoboam.
We first meet her in 1 Kings 15, but I want to look first at 2 Chronicles 11:20-22. In verse 20 we’re told that Rohaboam married her and she bore him Abijah, Attai, Ziza, and Shelomith. Then we learn that Rohaboam loved her more than any of his other wives and concubines, which is pretty impressive, considering he had 18 wives and 60 concubines. He fathered 28 sons and 60 daughters, but he appointed Maacha’s son Abijah as crown prince to succeed him as king.
All God's Women is a Bible study podcast where we journey through the Bible one woman at a time. If you enjoy learning about women in the Bible, tune in each week to learn about a different Bible woman.
