1 Kings 12

And Rehoboam
<07346>
went
<03212> (8799)
to Shechem
<07927>_:
for all Israel
<03478>
were come
<0935> (8804)
to Shechem
<07927>
to make him king
<04427> (8687)_.
And it came to pass, when Jeroboam
<03379>
the son
<01121>
of Nebat
<05028>_,
who was yet in Egypt
<04714>_,
heard
<08085> (8800)
[of it], (for he was fled
<01272> (8804)
from the presence
<06440>
of king
<04428>
Solomon
<08010>_,
and Jeroboam
<03379>
dwelt
<03427> (8799)
in Egypt
<04714>;)
That they sent
<07971> (8799)
and called
<07121> (8799)
him. And Jeroboam
<03379>
and all the congregation
<06951>
of Israel
<03478>
came
<0935> (8799)_,
and spake
<01696> (8762)
unto Rehoboam
<07346>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
Thy father
<01>
made
<07185> (0)
our yoke
<05923>
grievous
<07185> (8689)_:
now therefore make thou the grievous
<07186>
service
<05656>
of thy father
<01>_,
and his heavy
<03515>
yoke
<05923>
which he put
<05414> (8804)
upon us, lighter
<07043> (8685)_,
and we will serve
<05647> (8799)
thee.
And he said
<0559> (8799)
unto them, Depart
<03212> (8798)
yet [for] three
<07969>
days
<03117>_,
then come again
<07725> (8798)
to me. And the people
<05971>
departed
<03212> (8799)_.
And king
<04428>
Rehoboam
<07346>
consulted
<03289> (8735)
with the old men
<02205>_,
that stood
<05975> (8802)
before
<06440>
Solomon
<08010>
his father
<01>
while he yet lived
<02416>_,
and said
<0559> (8800)_,
How do ye advise
<03289> (8737)
that I may
<07725> (8687)
answer
<01697>
this people
<05971>_?
And they spake
<01696> (8762)
unto him, saying
<0559> (8800)_,
If thou wilt be a servant
<05650>
unto this people
<05971>
this day
<03117>_,
and wilt serve
<05647> (8804)
them, and answer
<06030> (8804)
them, and speak
<01696> (8765)
good
<02896>
words
<01697>
to them, then they will be thy servants
<05650>
for ever
<03117>_.
But he forsook
<05800> (8799)
the counsel
<06098>
of the old men
<02205>_,
which they had given
<03289> (8804)
him, and consulted
<03289> (8735)
with the young men
<03206>
that were grown up
<01431> (8804)
with him, [and] which stood
<05975> (8802)
before
<06440>
him:
And he said
<0559> (8799)
unto them, What counsel give
<03289> (8737)
ye that we may
<07725> (8686)
answer
<01697>
this people
<05971>_,
who have spoken
<01696> (8765)
to me, saying
<0559> (8800)_,
Make
<07043> (0)
the yoke
<05923>
which thy father
<01>
did put
<05414> (8804)
upon us lighter
<07043> (8685)_?
And the young men
<03206>
that were grown up
<01431> (8804)
with him spake
<01696> (8762)
unto him, saying
<0559> (8800)_,
Thus shalt thou speak
<0559> (8799)
unto this people
<05971>
that spake
<01696> (8765)
unto thee, saying
<0559> (8800)_,
Thy father
<01>
made
<03513> (0)
our yoke
<05923>
heavy
<03513> (8689)_,
but make thou [it] lighter
<07043> (8685)
unto us; thus shalt thou say
<01696> (8762)
unto them, My little
<06995>
[finger] shall be thicker
<05666> (8804)
than my father's
<01>
loins
<04975>_.
And now whereas my father
<01>
did lade
<06006> (8689)
you with a heavy
<03515>
yoke
<05923>_,
I will add
<03254> (8686)
to your yoke
<05923>_:
my father
<01>
hath chastised
<03256> (8765)
you with whips
<07752>_,
but I will chastise
<03256> (8762)
you with scorpions
<06137>_.
So Jeroboam
<03379>
and all the people
<05971>
came
<0935> (8799)
to Rehoboam
<07346>
the third
<07992>
day
<03117>_,
as the king
<04428>
had appointed
<01696> (8765)_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
Come to me again
<07725> (8798)
the third
<07992>
day
<03117>_.
And the king
<04428>
answered
<06030> (8799)
the people
<05971>
roughly
<07186>_,
and forsook
<05800> (8799)
the old men's
<02205>
counsel
<06098>
that they gave
<03289> (8804)
him; {roughly: Heb. hardly}
And spake
<01696> (8762)
to them after the counsel
<06098>
of the young men
<03206>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
My father
<01>
made
<03513> (0)
your yoke
<05923>
heavy
<03513> (8689)_,
and I will add
<03254> (8686)
to your yoke
<05923>_:
my father
<01>
[also] chastised
<03256> (8765)
you with whips
<07752>_,
but I will chastise
<03256> (8762)
you with scorpions
<06137>_.
Wherefore the king
<04428>
hearkened
<08085> (8804)
not unto the people
<05971>_;
for the cause
<05438>
was from the LORD
<03068>_,
that he might perform
<06965> (8687)
his saying
<01697>_,
which the LORD
<03068>
spake
<01696> (8765)
by
<03027>
Ahijah
<0281>
the Shilonite
<07888>
unto Jeroboam
<03379>
the son
<01121>
of Nebat
<05028>_.
So
<07725> (8686)
when all Israel
<03478>
saw
<07200> (8799)
that the king
<04428>
hearkened
<08085> (8804)
not unto them, the people
<05971>
answered
<01697>
the king
<04428>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
What portion
<02506>
have we in David
<01732>_?
neither [have we] inheritance
<05159>
in the son
<01121>
of Jesse
<03448>_:
to your tents
<0168>_,
O Israel
<03478>_:
now see
<07200> (8798)
to thine own house
<01004>_,
David
<01732>_.
So Israel
<03478>
departed
<03212> (8799)
unto their tents
<0168>_.
But [as for] the children
<01121>
of Israel
<03478>
which dwelt
<03427> (8802)
in the cities
<05892>
of Judah
<03063>_,
Rehoboam
<07346>
reigned
<04427> (8799)
over them.
Then king
<04428>
Rehoboam
<07346>
sent
<07971> (8799)
Adoram
<0151>_,
who [was] over the tribute
<04522>_;
and all Israel
<03478>
stoned
<07275> (8799)
him with stones
<068>_,
that he died
<04191> (8799)_.
Therefore king
<04428>
Rehoboam
<07346>
made speed
<0553> (8694)
to get him up
<05927> (8800)
to his chariot
<04818>_,
to flee
<05127> (8800)
to Jerusalem
<03389>_.
{made...: Heb. strengthened himself}
So Israel
<03478>
rebelled
<06586> (8799)
against the house
<01004>
of David
<01732>
unto this day
<03117>_.
{rebelled: or, fell away}
And it came to pass, when all Israel
<03478>
heard
<08085> (8800)
that Jeroboam
<03379>
was come again
<07725> (8804)_,
that they sent
<07971> (8799)
and called
<07121> (8799)
him unto the congregation
<05712>_,
and made him king
<04427> (8686)
over all Israel
<03478>_:
there was none that followed
<0310>
the house
<01004>
of David
<01732>_,
but
<02108>
the tribe
<07626>
of Judah
<03063>
only.
And when Rehoboam
<07346>
was come
<0935> (8799)
to Jerusalem
<03389>_,
he assembled
<06950> (8686)
all the house
<01004>
of Judah
<03063>_,
with the tribe
<07626>
of Benjamin
<01144>_,
an hundred
<03967>
and fourscore
<08084>
thousand
<0505>
chosen men
<0977> (8803)_,
which were warriors
<06213> (8802) <04421>_,
to fight
<03898> (8736)
against the house
<01004>
of Israel
<03478>_,
to bring
<07725> (0)
the kingdom
<04410>
again
<07725> (8687)
to Rehoboam
<07346>
the son
<01121>
of Solomon
<08010>_.
But the word
<01697>
of God
<0430>
came unto Shemaiah
<08098>
the man
<0376>
of God
<0430>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
Speak
<0559> (8798)
unto Rehoboam
<07346>_,
the son
<01121>
of Solomon
<08010>_,
king
<04428>
of Judah
<03063>_,
and unto all the house
<01004>
of Judah
<03063>
and Benjamin
<01144>_,
and to the remnant
<03499>
of the people
<05971>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
Thus saith
<0559> (8804)
the LORD
<03068>_,
Ye shall not go up
<05927> (8799)_,
nor fight
<03898> (8735)
against your brethren
<0251>
the children
<01121>
of Israel
<03478>_:
return
<07725> (8798)
every man
<0376>
to his house
<01004>_;
for this thing
<01697>
is
<01961> (8738)
from me. They hearkened
<08085> (8799)
therefore to the word
<01697>
of the LORD
<03068>_,
and returned
<07725> (8799)
to depart
<03212> (8800)_,
according to the word
<01697>
of the LORD
<03068>_.
Then Jeroboam
<03379>
built
<01129> (8799)
Shechem
<07927>
in mount
<02022>
Ephraim
<0669>_,
and dwelt
<03427> (8799)
therein; and went out
<03318> (8799)
from thence, and built
<01129> (8799)
Penuel
<06439>_.
And Jeroboam
<03379>
said
<0559> (8799)
in his heart
<03820>_,
Now shall the kingdom
<04467>
return
<07725> (8799)
to the house
<01004>
of David
<01732>_:
If this people
<05971>
go up
<05927> (8799)
to do
<06213> (8800)
sacrifice
<02077>
in the house
<01004>
of the LORD
<03068>
at Jerusalem
<03389>_,
then shall the heart
<03820>
of this people
<05971>
turn again
<07725> (8804)
unto their lord
<0113>_,
[even] unto Rehoboam
<07346>
king
<04428>
of Judah
<03063>_,
and they shall kill
<02026> (8804)
me, and go again
<07725> (8804)
to Rehoboam
<07346>
king
<04428>
of Judah
<03063>_.
Whereupon the king
<04428>
took counsel
<03289> (8735)_,
and made
<06213> (8799)
two
<08147>
calves
<05695>
[of] gold
<02091>_,
and said
<0559> (8799)
unto them, It is too much
<07227>
for you to go up
<05927> (8800)
to Jerusalem
<03389>_:
behold thy gods
<0430>_,
O Israel
<03478>_,
which brought thee up
<05927> (8689)
out of the land
<0776>
of Egypt
<04714>_.
And he set
<07760> (8799)
the one
<0259>
in Bethel
<01008>_,
and the other
<0259>
put
<05414> (8804)
he in Dan
<01835>_.
And this thing
<01697>
became a sin
<02403>_:
for the people
<05971>
went
<03212> (8799)
[to worship] before
<06440>
the one
<0259>_,
[even] unto Dan
<01835>_.
And he made
<06213> (8799)
an house
<01004>
of high places
<01116>_,
and made
<06213> (8799)
priests
<03548>
of the lowest
<07098>
of the people
<05971>_,
which were not of the sons
<01121>
of Levi
<03878>_.
And Jeroboam
<03379>
ordained
<06213> (8799)
a feast
<02282>
in the eighth
<08066>
month
<02320>_,
on the fifteenth
<02568> <06240>
day
<03117>
of the month
<02320>_,
like unto the feast
<02282>
that [is] in Judah
<03063>_,
and he offered
<05927> (8686)
upon the altar
<04196>_.
So did
<06213> (8804)
he in Bethel
<01008>_,
sacrificing
<02076> (8763)
unto the calves
<05695>
that he had made
<06213> (8804)_:
and he placed
<05975> (8689)
in Bethel
<01008>
the priests
<03548>
of the high places
<01116>
which he had made
<06213> (8804)_.
{offered...: or, went up to the altar, etc} {sacrificing: or, to sacrifice}
So he offered
<05927> (8686)
upon the altar
<04196>
which he had made
<06213> (8804)
in Bethel
<01008>
the fifteenth
<02568> <06240>
day
<03117>
of the eighth
<08066>
month
<02320>_,
[even] in the month
<02320>
which he had devised
<0908> (8804)
of his own heart
<03820>_;
and ordained
<06213> (8799)
a feast
<02282>
unto the children
<01121>
of Israel
<03478>_:
and he offered
<05927> (8686)
upon the altar
<04196>_,
and burnt incense
<06999> (8687)_.
{offered...: or, went up to the altar, etc} {and burnt...: Heb. to burn incense}
