1Kgs 11:26-28

Jeroboam's Rebellion 26Jeroboam son of Nebat, an Ephraimite of Zeredah, a servant of Solomon, whose mother's name was Zeruah, a widow, rebelled against the king.27The following was the reason he rebelled against the king. Solomon built the Millo, and closed up the gap in the wall of the city of his father David.28The man Jeroboam was very able, and when Solomon saw that the young man was industrious he gave him charge over all the forced labor of the house of Joseph.
