1 Kings 12:6-11

And king
<04428>
Rehoboam
<07346>
consulted
<03289> (8735)
with the old men
<02205>_,
that stood
<05975> (8802)
before
<06440>
Solomon
<08010>
his father
<01>
while he yet lived
<02416>_,
and said
<0559> (8800)_,
How do ye advise
<03289> (8737)
that I may
<07725> (8687)
answer
<01697>
this people
<05971>_?
And they spake
<01696> (8762)
unto him, saying
<0559> (8800)_,
If thou wilt be a servant
<05650>
unto this people
<05971>
this day
<03117>_,
and wilt serve
<05647> (8804)
them, and answer
<06030> (8804)
them, and speak
<01696> (8765)
good
<02896>
words
<01697>
to them, then they will be thy servants
<05650>
for ever
<03117>_.
But he forsook
<05800> (8799)
the counsel
<06098>
of the old men
<02205>_,
which they had given
<03289> (8804)
him, and consulted
<03289> (8735)
with the young men
<03206>
that were grown up
<01431> (8804)
with him, [and] which stood
<05975> (8802)
before
<06440>
him:
And he said
<0559> (8799)
unto them, What counsel give
<03289> (8737)
ye that we may
<07725> (8686)
answer
<01697>
this people
<05971>_,
who have spoken
<01696> (8765)
to me, saying
<0559> (8800)_,
Make
<07043> (0)
the yoke
<05923>
which thy father
<01>
did put
<05414> (8804)
upon us lighter
<07043> (8685)_?
And the young men
<03206>
that were grown up
<01431> (8804)
with him spake
<01696> (8762)
unto him, saying
<0559> (8800)_,
Thus shalt thou speak
<0559> (8799)
unto this people
<05971>
that spake
<01696> (8765)
unto thee, saying
<0559> (8800)_,
Thy father
<01>
made
<03513> (0)
our yoke
<05923>
heavy
<03513> (8689)_,
but make thou [it] lighter
<07043> (8685)
unto us; thus shalt thou say
<01696> (8762)
unto them, My little
<06995>
[finger] shall be thicker
<05666> (8804)
than my father's
<01>
loins
<04975>_.
And now whereas my father
<01>
did lade
<06006> (8689)
you with a heavy
<03515>
yoke
<05923>_,
I will add
<03254> (8686)
to your yoke
<05923>_:
my father
<01>
hath chastised
<03256> (8765)
you with whips
<07752>_,
but I will chastise
<03256> (8762)
you with scorpions
<06137>_.
