1 Kings 12:28

Context
12:28 After the king had consulted with his advisers, 1  he made two golden calves. Then he said to the people, 2  “It is too much trouble for you to go up to Jerusalem. Look, Israel, here are your gods who brought you up from the land of Egypt.”

1 Kings 12:32

Context
12:32 Jeroboam inaugurated a festival on the fifteenth day of the eighth month, 3  like the festival celebrated in Judah. 4  On the altar in Bethel he offered sacrifices to the calves he had made. 5  In Bethel he also appointed priests for the high places he had made.

1 tn The words “with his advisers” are supplied in the translation for clarification.

2 tn Heb “to them,” although this may be a corruption of “to the people.” Cf. the Old Greek translation.

3 sn The eighth month would correspond to October-November in modern reckoning.

4 sn The festival he celebrated in Judah probably refers to the Feast of Tabernacles (i.e., Booths or Temporary Shelters), held in the seventh month (September-October). See also 1 Kgs 8:2.

5 tn Heb “and he offered up [sacrifices] on the altar; he did this in Bethel, sacrificing to the calves which he had made.”
