The rending of the kingdom was but the beginning of a wonderful history, wherein are revealed the long-sufferance and tender mercy of God. From the crucible of affliction through which they were to pass because of hereditary and cultivated tendencies to evil, those whom God was seeking to purify unto Himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works, were finally to acknowledge:

"There is none like unto Thee, O Lord; Thou art great, and Thy name is great in might. Who would not fear Thee, O King of nations? ... Among all the wise men of the nations, and in all their kingdoms, there is none like unto Thee." "The Lord is the true God, He is the living God, and an everlasting King." Jeremiah 10:6, 7, 10.

And the worshipers of idols were at last to learn the lesson that false gods are powerless to uplift and save. "The gods that have not made the heavens and the earth, even they shall perish from the earth, and from under these heavens." Verse 11. Only in allegiance to the living God, the Creator of all and the Ruler over all, can man find rest and peace.

With one accord the chastened and penitent of Israel and Judah were at last to renew their covenant relationship with Jehovah of hosts, the God of their fathers; and of Him they were to declare:

"He hath made the earth by His power,
He hath established the world by His wisdom,
And hath stretched out the heavens by His discretion.

"When He uttereth His voice, there is a multitude of waters
in the heavens.

And He causeth the vapors to ascend from the ends
of the earth;
He maketh lightnings with rain, and bringeth forth the
wind out of His treasures.

"Every man is brutish in his knowledge:
Every founder is confounded by the graven image:
For his molten image is falsehood, and there is no breath
in them.

"They are vanity, and the work of errors:
In the time of their visitation they shall perish.
The portion of Jacob is not like them:

"For He is the former of all things;
And Israel is the rod of His inheritance:
The Lord of hosts is His name."

Verse 12-16.

{Prophets and Kings, Chapter 6--The Rending of the Kingdom p.97-98}
