1 Kings 12:12-15


12:12 Jeroboam and all the people reported 1  to Rehoboam on the third day, just as the king had ordered when he said, “Return to me on the third day.” 12:13 The king responded to the people harshly. He rejected the advice of the older men 12:14 and followed 2  the advice of the younger ones. He said, “My father imposed heavy demands on you; I will make them even heavier. 3  My father punished you with ordinary whips; I will punish you with whips that really sting your flesh.” 4  12:15 The king refused to listen to the people, because the Lord was instigating this turn of events 5  so that he might bring to pass the prophetic announcement he had made 6  through Ahijah the Shilonite to Jeroboam son of Nebat.
