Who is Shishak?
        , the head of the twenty-second dynasty, Sheshonk I., who received the fugitive Jeroboam, 1 Kgs 11:40, and in the fifth year of Rehoboam, b.c. 969, invaded Judaea and spoiled the temple. 1 Kgs 14:25-26; 2 Chr 12:2-9. At Karnak, on the Nile, there is an inscription which records this expedition. The king presents, among his other captives, one with an unmistakable Hebrew physiognomy. The accompanying inscription, "lndaha-malek," has been interpreted "Kingdom of Judah." If this is correct, then Rehoboam is probably meant. Other inscriptions give a particular list of the "fenced cities" mentioned in Head of Shishak. (From temple at Karnak.) 2 Chron 12:4 as having been taken in this expedition.
