At that timeH6256 AbijahH29 the sonH1121 of JeroboamH3379 fell sick.H2470
And JeroboamH3379 saidH559 to his wife,H802 Arise,H6965 I prayH4994 you, and disguiseH8138 yourself, that you be not knownH3045 to be the wifeH802 of Jeroboam;H3379 and getH1980 you to Shiloh:H7887 behold,H2009 thereH8033 is AhijahH281 the prophet,H5030 whichH1931 toldH1696 me that I should be kingH4428 overH5921 thisH2088 people.H5971
And takeH3947 with you tenH6235 loaves,H3899 and cracknels,H5350 and a cruseH1228 of honey,H1706 and goH935 to him: he shall tellH5046 you whatH4100 shall becomeH1961 of the child.H5288
And Jeroboam'sH3379 wifeH802 didH6213 so,H3651 and arose,H6965 and wentH3212 to Shiloh,H7887 and cameH935 to the houseH1004 of Ahijah.H281 But AhijahH281 couldH3201 not see;H7200 for his eyesH5869 were setH6965 by reason of his age.H7869
And the LORDH3068 saidH559 to Ahijah,H281 Behold,H2009 the wifeH802 of JeroboamH3379 comesH935 to askH1875 a thingH1697 of you for her son;H1121 for he is sick:H2470 thusH2090 and thusH2088 shall you sayH1696 to her: for it shall be, when she comesH935 in, that she shall feignH5234 herself to be anotherH5234 woman.
And it was so, when AhijahH281 heardH8085 the soundH6963 of her feet,H7272 as she cameH935 in at the door,H6607 that he said,H559 ComeH935 in, you wifeH802 of Jeroboam;H3379 whyH4100 feignH5234 you yourself to be another?H5234 for I am sentH7971 to you with heavyH7186 tidings.
Go,H3212 tellH559 Jeroboam,H3379 ThusH3541 saidH559 the LORDH3068 GodH430 of Israel,H3478 For as muchH3282 H834 as I exaltedH7311 you from amongH8432 the people,H5971 and madeH5414 you princeH5057 overH5921 my peopleH5971 Israel,H3478
And rentH7167 the kingdomH4467 away from the houseH1004 of David,H1732 and gaveH5414 it you: and yet you have not beenH1961 as my servantH5650 David,H1732 whoH834 keptH8104 my commandments,H4687 and whoH834 followedH1980 H310 me with allH3605 his heart,H3824 to doH6213 that onlyH7535 which was rightH3477 in my eyes;H5869
But have doneH6213 evilH7489 above allH3605 that were beforeH6440 you: for you have goneH3212 and madeH6213 you otherH312 gods,H430 and moltenH4541 images, to provoke me to anger,H3707 and have castH7993 me behindH310 your back:H1458
Therefore, behold,H2005 I will bringH935 evilH7451 on the houseH1004 of Jeroboam,H3379 and will cutH3772 off from JeroboamH3379 him that urinatesH8366 against the wall,H7023 and him that is shutH6113 up and leftH5800 in Israel,H3478 and will takeH1197 away the remnantH310 of the houseH1004 of Jeroboam,H3379 as a man takesH1197 away dung,H1557 tillH5704 it be allH8552 gone.
Him that diesH4191 of JeroboamH3379 in the cityH5892 shall the dogsH3611 eat;H398 and him that diesH4191 in the fieldH7704 shall the fowlsH5775 of the airH8064 eat:H398 for the LORDH3068 has spokenH1696 it.
AriseH6965 you therefore, getH3212 you to your own house:H1004 and when your feetH7272 enterH935 into the city,H5892 the childH3206 shall die.H4191
And allH3605 IsraelH3478 shall mournH5594 for him, and buryH6912 him: for he onlyH905 of JeroboamH3379 shall comeH935 to the grave,H6913 becauseH3282 in him there is foundH4672 some goodH2896 thingH1697 towardH413 the LORDH3068 GodH430 of IsraelH3478 in the houseH1004 of Jeroboam.H3379
Moreover the LORDH3068 shall raiseH6965 him up a kingH4428 overH5921 Israel,H3478 whoH834 shall cutH3772 off the houseH1004 of JeroboamH3379 that day:H3117 but what?H4100 evenH1571 now.H6258
For the LORDH3068 shall smiteH5221 Israel,H3478 as a reedH7070 is shakenH5110 in the water,H4325 and he shall rootH5428 up IsraelH3478 out of thisH2063 goodH2896 land,H127 whichH834 he gaveH5414 to their fathers,H1 and shall scatterH2219 them beyondH5676 the river,H5104 becauseH834 they have madeH6213 their groves,H842 provoking the LORDH3068 to anger.H3707
And he shall giveH5414 IsraelH3478 up becauseH1558 of the sinsH2403 of Jeroboam,H3379 whoH834 did sin,H2398 and whoH834 made IsraelH3478 to sin.H2398
And Jeroboam'sH3379 wifeH802 arose,H6965 and departed,H3212 and cameH935 to Tirzah:H8656 and when she cameH935 to the thresholdH5592 of the door,H1004 the childH5288 died;H4191
And they buriedH6912 him; and allH3605 IsraelH3478 mournedH5594 for him, according to the wordH1697 of the LORD,H3068 whichH834 he spokeH1696 by the handH3027 of his servantH5650 AhijahH281 the prophet.H5030
And the restH3499 of the actsH1697 of Jeroboam,H3379 howH834 he warred,H3898 and howH834 he reigned,H4427 behold,H2009 they are writtenH3789 in the bookH5612 of the chroniclesH1697 H3117 of the kingsH4428 of Israel.H3478
And the daysH3117 whichH834 JeroboamH3379 reignedH4427 were twoH8147 and twentyH6242 years:H8141 and he sleptH7901 with his fathers,H1 and NadabH5070 his sonH1121 reignedH4427 in his stead.H8478
And RehoboamH7346 the sonH1121 of SolomonH8010 reignedH4427 in Judah.H3063 RehoboamH7346 was fortyH705 and oneH259 yearsH8141 oldH1121 when he began to reign,H4427 and he reignedH4427 seventeenH7651 H6240 yearsH8141 in Jerusalem,H3389 the cityH5892 whichH834 the LORDH3068 did chooseH977 out of allH3605 the tribesH7626 of Israel,H3478 to putH7760 his nameH8034 there.H8033 And his mother'sH517 nameH8034 was NaamahH5279 an Ammonitess.H5984
And JudahH3063 didH6213 evilH7451 in the sightH5869 of the LORD,H3068 and they provoked him to jealousyH7065 with their sinsH2403 whichH834 they had committed,H2398 above allH3605 that their fathersH1 had done.H6213
For they alsoH1571 builtH1129 them highH1364 places, and images,H4676 and groves,H842 onH5921 everyH3605 highH1364 hill,H1389 and underH413 H478 everyH3605 greenH7488 tree.H6086
And there were alsoH1571 sodomitesH6945 in the land:H776 and they didH6213 according to allH3605 the abominationsH8441 of the nationsH1471 whichH834 the LORDH3068 castH3423 out beforeH6440 the childrenH1121 of Israel.H3478
And it cameH1961 to pass in the fifthH2549 yearH8141 of kingH4428 Rehoboam,H7346 that ShishakH7895 kingH4428 of EgyptH4714 cameH5927 up againstH5921 Jerusalem:H3389
And he tookH3947 away the treasuresH214 of the houseH1004 of the LORD,H3068 and the treasuresH214 of the king'sH4428 house;H1004 he even tookH3947 away all:H3605 and he tookH3947 away allH3605 the shieldsH4043 of goldH2091 whichH834 SolomonH8010 had made.H6213
And kingH4428 RehoboamH7346 madeH6213 in their steadH8478 brazenH5178 shields,H4043 and committedH6485 them to the handsH3027 of the chiefH8269 of the guard,H7323 which keptH8104 the doorH6607 of the king'sH4428 house.H1004
And it was so, whenH1767 the kingH4428 wentH935 into the houseH1004 of the LORD,H3068 that the guardH7323 boreH5375 them, and broughtH7725 them backH7725 intoH413 the guardH7323 chamber.H8372
Now the restH3499 of the actsH1697 of Rehoboam,H7346 and allH3605 that he did,H6213 are they not writtenH3789 in the bookH5612 of the chroniclesH1697 H3117 of the kingsH4428 of Judah?H3063
And there was warH4421 betweenH996 RehoboamH7346 and JeroboamH3379 allH3605 their days.H3117
And RehoboamH7346 sleptH7901 with his fathers,H1 and was buriedH6912 with his fathersH1 in the cityH5892 of David.H1732 And his mother'sH517 nameH8034 was NaamahH5279 an Ammonitess.H5984 And AbijamH38 his sonH1121 reignedH4427 in his stead.H8478
