Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

1 Kings 11:13

_ _ I will give one tribe to thy son — There were left to Rehoboam the tribes of Judah, Benjamin, and Levi (2 Chronicles 11:12, 2 Chronicles 11:13); and multitudes of Israelites, who, after the schism of the kingdom, established their residence within the territory of Judah to enjoy the privileges of the true religion (1 Kings 12:17). These are all reckoned as one tribe.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 1 Kings 11:9-13.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

1 Kings 11:13

One tribe — Benjamin was not entirely his, but part of it adhered to Jeroboam, as Bethel, 1 Kings 12:29, and Hephron, 2 Chronicles 13:19, both which were towns of Benjamin.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

1 Kings 11:13

Howbeit I will not rend away all the kingdom; [but] will give one (g) tribe to thy son for David my servant's sake, and for Jerusalem's sake which I have chosen.

(g) Because the tribes of Judah and Benjamin had their possessions mixed, they are here taken as one tribe.
