1 Kings 11:29-30

Context
11:29 At that time, when Jeroboam had left Jerusalem, the prophet Ahijah the Shilonite met him on the road; the two of them were alone in the open country. Ahijah 1  was wearing a brand new robe, 11:30 and he grabbed the robe 2  and tore it into twelve pieces.

1 tn The Hebrew text has simply “he,” making it a bit unclear whether Jeroboam or Ahijah is the subject, but in the Hebrew word order Ahijah is the nearer antecedent, and this is followed by the present translation.

2 tn Heb “and Ahijah grabbed the new robe that was on him.”
