The NIV translates Rehoboam’s son as Abijah. When you compare it on the Bible app, to all the other translations every other translation calls him Abijam.

There was confusion for me because Abijah, Jeroboam’s son, died. So this led me to think that they each had a child named Abijah. I verified this by looking at my Amplified paperback Bible too. And it’s confusing, and God doesn’t work in confusion.

Any reason why the NIV did this?
