Jeroboam inaugurated a festival on the fifteenth day of the eighth month, 1 like the festival celebrated in Judah. 2 On the altar in Bethel he offered sacrifices to the calves he had made. 3 In Bethel he also appointed priests for the high places he had made.
The Lover to His Beloved: O my dove, 1 in the clefts of the rock, in the hiding places of the mountain crags, let me see your face, let me hear your voice; for your voice is sweet, and your face is lovely.
ו (Vav) He destroyed his temple 1 as if it were a vineyard; 2 he destroyed his appointed meeting place. The Lord has made those in Zion forget both the festivals and the Sabbaths. 3 In his fierce anger 4 he has spurned 5 both king and priest.
