    Clarke's Commentary on 1 Kings 11:29

    When Jeroboam went out of Jerusalem - On what errand he was going out of Jerusalem, we know not.

    Ahijah the Shilonite - He was one of those who wrote the history of the reign of Solomon, as we find from 2 Chronicles 9:29, and it is supposed that it was by him God spake twice to Solomon; and particularly delivered the message which we find in this chapter, 1 Kings 11:11-13.

    Barnes' Notes on 1 Kings 11:29

    At that time - Probably after Jeroboam's return from Egypt (see 1 Kings 11:40).

    The Shilonite - An inhabitant of Shiloh in Mount Ephraim, the earliest and most sacred of the Hebrew sanctuaries (Joshua 18:10; Judges 18:31; 1 Samuel 4:3, etc.)
