And RehoboamH7346 wentH3212 to Shechem:H7927 for to ShechemH7927 were allH3605 IsraelH3478 comeH935 to make him king.H4427
And it cameH1961 to pass, when JeroboamH3379 the sonH1121 of Nebat,H5028 whoH1931 was in Egypt,H4714 whereH834 he fledH1272 from the presenceH6440 of SolomonH8010 the king,H4428 heardH8085 it, that JeroboamH3379 returnedH7725 out of Egypt.H4714
And they sentH7971 and calledH7121 him. So JeroboamH3379 and allH3605 IsraelH3478 cameH935 and spokeH1696 to Rehoboam,H7346 saying,H559
Your fatherH25 made our yokeH5923 grievous:H7185 nowH6258 therefore easeH7043 you somewhat the grievousH7186 servitudeH5656 of your father,H25 and his heavyH3515 yokeH5923 that he putH5414 on us, and we will serveH5647 you.
And he saidH559 to them, ComeH7725 againH7725 to me after threeH7969 days.H3117 And the peopleH5971 departed.H3212
And kingH4428 RehoboamH7346 took counselH3289 with the oldH2205 men that hadH1961 stoodH5975 beforeH6440 SolomonH8010 his fatherH25 while he yet lived,H2416 saying,H559 WhatH349 counselH3289 give you me to returnH7725 answerH1697 to thisH2088 people?H5971
And they spokeH1696 to him, saying,H559 IfH518 you be kindH2896 to thisH2088 people,H5971 and pleaseH7521 them, and speakH1696 goodH2896 wordsH1697 to them, they will be your servantsH5650 for ever.H3605 H3117
But he forsookH5800 the counselH6098 whichH834 the oldH2205 men gaveH3289 him, and took counselH3289 with the youngH3206 men that were broughtH1431 up with him, that stood beforeH6440 him.
And he saidH559 to them, WhatH4100 adviceH3289 give you that we may returnH7725 answerH1697 to thisH2088 people,H5971 whichH834 have spokenH1696 to me, saying,H559 EaseH7043 somewhat the yokeH5923 that your fatherH25 did putH5414 on us?
And the youngH3206 men that were broughtH1431 up with him spokeH1696 to him, saying,H559 ThusH3541 shall you answerH559 the peopleH5971 that spokeH1696 to you, saying,H559 Your fatherH25 made our yokeH5923 heavy,H3513 but make you it somewhat lighterH7043 for us; thusH3541 shall you sayH559 to them, My littleH6996 finger shall be thickerH5666 than my father'sH1 loins.H4975
For whereasH6258 my fatherH25 putH6006 a heavyH3515 yokeH5923 on you, I will putH3254 moreH3254 to your yoke:H5923 my fatherH25 chastisedH3256 you with whips,H7752 but I will chastise you with scorpions.H6137
So JeroboamH3379 and allH3605 the peopleH5971 cameH935 to RehoboamH7346 on the thirdH7992 day,H3117 as the kingH4428 bade,H1696 saying,H559 ComeH7725 againH7725 to me on the thirdH7992 day.H3117
And the kingH4428 answeredH6030 them roughly;H7186 and kingH4428 RehoboamH7346 forsookH5800 the counselH6098 of the oldH2205 men,
And answeredH1697 them after the adviceH6098 of the youngH3206 men, saying,H559 My fatherH25 made your yokeH5923 heavy,H3513 but I will addH3254 thereto:H5921 my fatherH25 chastisedH3256 you with whips,H7752 but I will chastise you with scorpions.H6137
So the kingH4428 listenedH8085 not to the people:H5971 for the causeH5252 was of God,H430 that the LORDH3068 might performH6965 his word,H1697 whichH834 he spokeH1696 by the handH3027 of AhijahH281 the ShiloniteH7888 to JeroboamH3379 the sonH1121 of Nebat.H5028
And when allH3605 IsraelH3478 sawH7200 that the kingH4428 would not listenH8085 to them, the peopleH5971 answeredH7725 the king,H4428 saying,H559 WhatH4100 portionH2506 have we in David?H1732 and we have noneH3808 inheritanceH5159 in the sonH1121 of Jesse:H3448 every manH376 to your tents,H168 O Israel:H3478 and now,H6258 David,H1732 seeH7200 to your own house.H1004 So allH3605 IsraelH3478 wentH3212 to their tents.H168
But as for the childrenH1121 of IsraelH3478 that dwelledH3427 in the citiesH5892 of Judah,H3063 RehoboamH7346 reignedH4427 overH5921 them.
Then kingH4428 RehoboamH7346 sentH7971 HadoramH1913 that was overH5921 the tribute;H4522 and the childrenH1121 of IsraelH3478 stonedH7275 him with stones,H68 that he died.H4191 But kingH4428 RehoboamH7346 made speedH553 to getH5927 him up to his chariot,H4818 to fleeH5127 to Jerusalem.H3389
And IsraelH3478 rebelledH6586 against the houseH1004 of DavidH1732 to thisH2088 day.H3117
