A Prophet Announces the End of Jeroboam’s Dynasty

Anyone who wanted the job he consecrated as a priest. 3  13:34 This sin caused Jeroboam’s dynasty 4  to come to an end and to be destroyed from the face of the earth.

14:1 5 At that time Jeroboam’s son Abijah became sick. 14:2 Jeroboam told his wife, “Disguise 6  yourself so that people cannot recognize you are Jeroboam’s wife. Then go to Shiloh; Ahijah the prophet, who told me I would rule over this nation, lives there. 7
