1 Kings 14:5

Context
NETBible

But the Lord had told Ahijah, “Look, Jeroboam’s wife is coming to find out from you what will happen to her son, for he is sick. Tell her so-and-so. 1  When she comes, she will be in a disguise.”

XREF

2Ki 4:27; 2Ki 6:8-12; Ps 139:1-4; Pr 21:30; Am 3:7; Ac 10:19,20

NET © Notes

sn Tell her so-and-so. Certainly the Lord gave Ahijah a specific message to give to Jeroboam’s wife (see vv. 6-16), but the author of Kings here condenses the Lord’s message with the words “so-and-so.” For dramatic effect he prefers to have us hear the message from Ahijah’s lips as he speaks to the king’s wife.
