Rezon, son of Eliade as an enemy of Solomon (1 Kings 11:23-11:25)

“God raised up another adversary against Solomon, Rezon son of Eliada, who had fled from his master Hadadezer king of Zobah. He gathered followers around him. He became the leader of a marauding band, after the slaughter by David. They went to Damascus, settled there, and became king in Damascus. He was an adversary of Israel all the days of Solomon, making trouble as Hadad did. He despised Israel, and reigned over Aram.”

Rezon was the son of Eliada, who was involved with Hadadezer. You might remember them from in 2 Samuel, chapter 8, where there is a mention of the conquests of David. He settled in Damascus and became the king there. Both he and Hadad caused problems on the northwest and southwest areas during the time of Solomon. Although Solomon was a great commercial success there is very little about Solomon’s conquests or wars. Aram is another word to describe what we call Syria today. However, the shifting borders seem that the ancient title of Aram seems okay.
