2 Chronicles 10

And Rehoboam
<07346>
went
<03212> (8799)
to Shechem
<07927>_:
for to Shechem
<07927>
were all Israel
<03478>
come
<0935> (8804)
to make him king
<04427> (8687)_.
And it came to pass, when Jeroboam
<03379>
the son
<01121>
of Nebat
<05028>_,
who [was] in Egypt
<04714>_,
whither he had fled
<01272> (8804)
from the presence
<06440>
of Solomon
<08010>
the king
<04428>_,
heard
<08085> (8800)
[it], that Jeroboam
<03379>
returned
<07725> (8799)
out of Egypt
<04714>_.
And they sent
<07971> (8799)
and called
<07121> (8799)
him. So Jeroboam
<03379>
and all Israel
<03478>
came
<0935> (8799)
and spake
<01696> (8762)
to Rehoboam
<07346>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
Thy father
<01>
made our yoke
<05923>
grievous
<07185> (8689)_:
now therefore ease
<07043> (8685)
thou somewhat the grievous
<07186>
servitude
<05656>
of thy father
<01>_,
and his heavy
<03515>
yoke
<05923>
that he put
<05414> (8804)
upon us, and we will serve
<05647> (8799)
thee.
And he said
<0559> (8799)
unto them, Come again
<07725> (8798)
unto me after three
<07969>
days
<03117>_.
And the people
<05971>
departed
<03212> (8799)_.
And king
<04428>
Rehoboam
<07346>
took counsel
<03289> (8735)
with the old
<02205>
men that had stood
<05975> (8802)
before
<06440>
Solomon
<08010>
his father
<01>
while he yet lived
<02416>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
What
<0349>
counsel give
<03289> (8737)
ye [me] to return
<07725> (8687)
answer
<01697>
to this people
<05971>_?
And they spake
<01696> (8762)
unto him, saying
<0559> (8800)_,
If thou be kind
<02896>
to this people
<05971>_,
and please
<07521> (8804)
them, and speak
<01696> (8765)
good
<02896>
words
<01697>
to them, they will be thy servants
<05650>
for ever
<03117>_.
But he forsook
<05800> (8799)
the counsel
<06098>
which the old men
<02205>
gave
<03289> (8804)
him, and took counsel
<03289> (8735)
with the young men
<03206>
that were brought up
<01431> (8804)
with him, that stood
<05975> (8802)
before
<06440>
him.
And he said
<0559> (8799)
unto them, What advice
<03289> (8737)
give ye that we may return
<07725> (8686)
answer
<01697>
to this people
<05971>_,
which have spoken
<01696> (8765)
to me, saying
<0559> (8800)_,
Ease
<07043> (8685)
somewhat the yoke
<05923>
that thy father
<01>
did put
<05414> (8804)
upon us?
And the young men
<03206>
that were brought up
<01431> (8804)
with him spake
<01696> (8762)
unto him, saying
<0559> (8800)_,
Thus shalt thou answer
<0559> (8799)
the 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] somewhat lighter
<07043> (8685)
for us; thus shalt thou say
<0559> (8799)
unto them, My little
<06995>
[finger] shall be thicker
<05666> (8804)
than my father's
<01>
loins
<04975>_.
For whereas
<06258>
my father
<01>
put
<06006> (8689)
a heavy
<03515>
yoke
<05923>
upon you, I will put more
<03254> (8686)
to your yoke
<05923>_:
my father
<01>
chastised
<03256> (8765)
you with whips
<07752>_,
but I [will chastise you] with scorpions
<06137>_.
{my father put: Heb. my father laded}
So Jeroboam
<03379>
and all the people
<05971>
came
<0935> (8799)
to Rehoboam
<07346>
on the third
<07992>
day
<03117>_,
as the king
<04428>
bade
<01696> (8765)_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
Come again
<07725> (8798)
to me on the third
<07992>
day
<03117>_.
And the king
<04428>
answered
<06030> (8799)
them roughly
<07186>_;
and king
<04428>
Rehoboam
<07346>
forsook
<05800> (8799)
the counsel
<06098>
of the old men
<02205>_,
And answered
<01696> (8762)
them after the advice
<06098>
of the young men
<03206>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
My father
<01>
made your yoke
<05923>
heavy
<03513> (8689)_,
but I will add
<03254> (8686)
thereto: my father
<01>
chastised
<03256> (8765)
you with whips
<07752>_,
but I [will chastise you] with scorpions
<06137>_.
So the king
<04428>
hearkened
<08085> (8804)
not unto the people
<05971>_:
for the cause
<05252>
was of God
<0430>_,
that the LORD
<03068>
might perform
<06965> (8687)
his word
<01697>_,
which he spake
<01696> (8765)
by the hand
<03027>
of Ahijah
<0281>
the Shilonite
<07888>
to Jeroboam
<03379>
the son
<01121>
of Nebat
<05028>_.
And when all Israel
<03478>
[saw
<07200> (8804)_]
that the king
<04428>
would not hearken
<08085> (8804)
unto them, the people
<05971>
answered
<07725> (8686)
the king
<04428>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
What portion
<02506>
have we in David
<01732>_?
and [we have] none inheritance
<05159>
in the son
<01121>
of Jesse
<03448>_:
every man
<0376>
to your tents
<0168>_,
O Israel
<03478>_:
[and] now, David
<01732>_,
see
<07200> (8798)
to thine own house
<01004>_.
So all Israel
<03478>
went
<03212> (8799)
to their tents
<0168>_.
But [as for] the children
<01121>
of Israel
<03478>
that 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)
Hadoram
<01913>
that [was] over the tribute
<04522>_;
and the children
<01121>
of Israel
<03478>
stoned
<07275> (8799)
him with stones
<068>_,
that he died
<04191> (8799)_.
But 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 speed: Heb. strengthened himself}
And Israel
<03478>
rebelled
<06586> (8799)
against the house
<01004>
of David
<01732>
unto this day
<03117>_.
