upon thee, and men's bones shall be burnt
upon thee.

3 And he gave ''a sign the same day, say-
ing. This is the sign which the Lord hath
spoken ; Behold, the altar shall be rent, and
the ashes that are upon it shall be poured out.

4 And it came to pass when king Jero-
boam heard the saying of the man of God,
which had cried against the altar in Beth-cl,
that he put forth his hand from the altar,
saying. Lay hold on him. And his hand,
which he put forth against him, dried up, so
that he could not pull it in again to him.

5 The altar also was rent, and the ashea
poured out from the altar, according to the
sign which the man of God had given by
the word of the Lord.

6 And the king answered and said unto
the man of God, * Entreat now the face of
the Lord thy God, and pray for me, that
my hand may be restored me again. And
the man of God besought fthe Lord, and
the king's hand was restored him again, and
became as it was before.

7 And the king said unto the man of
God, Come home with me, and refresh thy-
self, and ''I will give thee a reward.

8 And the man of God said unto the king,
8 If thou wilt give me half thine house, I will
not go in with thee, neither will I eat bread
nor drink water in this place :

9 For so was it charged me by the word
of the Lord, saying, ""Eat no bread, nor
drink-water, nor turn again by the same way
that thou earnest.

10 So he went another way, and returned
not by the way that he came to Beth-el.

11^ Now there dwelt an old prophet in
Beth-el ; and his f sons came and told him
all the works that the man of God had done
that day in Beth-el : the words which he had
spoken unto the king, them they told also to
their father.

12 And their father said unto them. What
way went he ? for his sons had seen what
way the man of God went which came from
Judah.

13 And he said unto his sons. Saddle me
the ass. So they saddled him the ass : and
he pode thereon,

14 And went after the man of God, and
found him sitting under an oak : and he said
unto him. Art thou the man of God that
camest from Judah ? And he said, I am.

15 Then he said unto him. Come home
with me, and eat bread.

16 And he said, 'I may not return with
thee, nor go in with thee : neither will I "'
bread nor drink water with thee in

place :

The disobedient prophet is slain.

17 For tit was said to me "^by the word
of the Lord, Thou shalt eat no bread nor
drink water there, nor turn again to go by
the way that thou earnest.

18 He said unto him, I am a. prophet also
as thou art ; and an angel spake unto me by
the word of the Lord, saying, Bring him
back with thee into thine house, that he may
eat bread and drink water. But he hed unto
him.

19 So he went back with him, and did eat
bread in his house and drank water.

20 IF And it came to pass, as they sat at
the table, that the word of the Lord came
unto the prophet that brought him back :

21 And he cried unto the man of God
that came from Judah, saying, Thus saith
the Lord, Forasmuch as thou hast disobey-
ed the mouth of the Lord, and hast not kept
the commandment which the Lord thy God
commanded thee,

22 But camest back, and hast eaten bread
and drunk water in the place, 'of the which
the LORD did say to thee. Eat no bread,
and drink no water ; thy carcass shall not
come unto the sepulchre of thy fathers.

23 IT And it came to pass, after he had
eaten bread, and after he had drunk, that
he saddled for him the ass, to wit, for the
prophet whom he had brought back.

24 And when he was gone, "'a lion met
him by the way, and slew him : and his car-
cass was cast in the way, and the ass stood
by it, the lion also stood by the carcass.

25 And behold, men passed by, and saw
the carcass cast in the way, and the Hon
standing by the carcass : and they came and
told it in the city where the old prophet
dwelt.

26 And when the prophet that brought
him back from the way heard thereof, he
said, It is the man of God, who was dis-
obedient unto the word of the Lord: there-
fore the Lord hath delivered him unto the
lion, which hath t torn him, and slain him,
according to the word of the Lord, which
he spake unto him.

' 27 And he spake to his sons, saying. Sad-
dle me the ass. And they saddled him.

28 And he went and found his carcass
cast in the way, and the ass and the lion

standing by the" carcass : the lion had
eaten the carcass, nor t torn the ass.

29 And the prophet took up the carcass of
the man of God, and laid it upon the ass, and
brought it back: and the old prophet came
to the city, to mourn and to bury him.

30 And he laid his carcass in his own
grave j and they mourned over him, saying,
"Alas, my brotlier !

Ahij ah, forewarned hy God, denounceth

31 And it came to pass, after he had
buried him, that he spake to his sons, saying,
When I am dead, then bury me in the se-
pulchre wherein the man of God is buried ;
"lay my bones beside his bones :

32 pFor the saying which he cried by the
word of the Lord against the altar in Beth-
el, and against all the houses of the high
places which are in the cities of i Samaria,
shall surely come to pass.

33 IT ■■ After this thing Jeroboam returned
not from his evil way, but t made again of
the lowest of the people priests of the high
places : whosoever would, he f consecrated
him, and he became 07ie of the priests of the
high places.

34 ^And this thing became sin unto the
house of Jeroboam, even ' to cut it off, and
to destroy it from off the face of the earth.

CHAP. XIV.

1 Alijah being sick, Jeroboam sendeth Ms wife disguised,
with presents to the prophet Ahijah at Shiloh. 5 Ahijah,
forewaned by God, denounceth God's judgment. 17
Abijah dieth, and is buried. 19 Nadal sicccccdeth
Jeroboam. 21 Rehoboam's wicked reign. 25 Shishah
spoileth Jerusalem. 29 Abijam succeedeth Rtholoam,

AT that time Abijah the son of Jeroboam
fell sick.

2 And Jeroboam said to his wife. Arise,

I pray thee, and disguise thyself, that thou
be not known to be the wife of Jeroboam ;
and get thee to Shiloh : behold, there is
Ahijah the prophet, which told me that ^ J
should he king over this people.

3 ''And take t^ith thee ten loaves, and

II cracknels, and a || cruse of honey, and go
to him : he shall tell thee what shall become
of the child.

4 And Jeroboam's wife did so, and arose,
•^and went to Shiloh, and came to the house
of Ahijah. But Ahijah could not see ; for
his eyes twere set by reason of his age.

5 IT And the Lord said unto Ahijah, Be-
hold, the wife of Jeroboam cometh to ask
a thing of thee for her son; for he is sick :
thus and thus shalt thou say unto her : for
it shall be, when she cometh in, that she
shall feign herself to he another woman.

6 And it was so, when Ahijah heard the
sound of her feet, as she came in at the
door, that he said. Come in, thou Avife of
Jeroboam; why feignest thou thyself io Je
another ? for I am sent to thee with t heavy
tidings.

7 Go, tell Jeroboam, Thus saith the Lokd
God of Israel, '' Forasmuch as I exalted thee
from among the people, and made thee
prince over my people Israel,

8 And ''rent the kingdom away from the
house of David, and gave it thee : and yet

328



God^s judgment against Jeroboam.

thou hast not been as my servant David,
'who kept my commandments, and who fol-
lowed me with all his heart, to do that only
which was right in mine eyes ;

9 But hast done evil above all that were
before thee : efor thou hast gone and made
thee other gods, and molten images, to pro-
voke me to anger, and ""hast cast me behind
thy back :

10 Therefore behold, 'I will bring evil
upon the house of Jeroboam, and ^ will cut
off from Jeroboam him that pisseth against
the wall, ^ajid him that is shut up and left
in Israel, and will take away the remnant of
the house of Jeroboam, as a man taketh
away dung, till it be all gone.

11 ""Him that dieth of Jeroboam in the
city shall the dogs eat ; and him that dieth
in the field shall the fowls of the air cat: for
the Lord hath spoken it.

12 Arise thou therefore, get thee to thine
own house : and "when thy feet enter into
the city, the child shall die.

13 And all Israel shall mourn for him,
and bury him : for he only of Jeroboam shall
come to the grave, because in him "there
is found some good thing toward the Lord
God of Israel in the house of Jeroboam.

14 P Moreover, the Lord shall raise him
up a king over Israel, who shall cut off the
house of Jeroboam that day: but what? even
now.

15 For the Lord shall smite Israel, as a
reed is shaken in the water, and he shall
iroot up Israel out of this "^good land, which
he gave to their fathers, and shall scatter
them = beyond the river, 'because they have
made their groves,
anger.

16 And he shall give Israel up because of
the sins of Jeroboam, "who did sin, and who
made Israel to sin.

17 IT And Jeroboam's wife arose, and de-
parted, and came to ^Tirzah: and ^when
she came to the threshold of the door, the
child died :

18 And they buried him; and all Israel
mourned for him, '^according to the word of
the Lord, which he spake by the hand of
his servant Ahijah the prophet.

19 And the rest of the acts of Jeroboam,
how he * warred, and how he reigned, behold,
they are written in the book of the Chronicles
of the kings of Israel.

20 And the days which Jeroboam reigned
were two and twenty years : and he t slept
with his fathers ; and Nadab his son reigned
in his stead.

reigned in Judah. ''Rehoboam was forty and

he reigned seventeen years in Jerusalem, the
city "^ which the Lord did choose out of all
the tribes of Israel, to put his name there :
•I and his mother's name was Naamah an
Ammonitess.

22 «And Judah did evil in the sight of the
Lord, and they ''provoked him to jealousy
with their sins which they had committed,
above all that their fathers had done.

23 For they also built them «high places,
and II images ''and groves, on every high hill,
and 'under every green tree.

24 ''And there were also sodomites in the
land : and they did according to all the abo-
minations of the nations which the Lord
cast out before the children of Israel.

25 TT'And it came to pass in the fifth year
of king Rehoboam, that Shishak king of
Egypt came up against Jerusalem :

26 '"And he took away the treasures of the
house of the Lord, and the treasures of the
king's house ; he even took away all : and he
took away all the shields of gold "which
Solomon had made.

27 And king Rehoboam made m their
stead brazen shields, and committed them
unto the hands of the chief of the f guard,
which kept the door of the king's house.

28 And it was so, when the king went
into the house of the Lord, that the guard
bare them, and brought them back into the
guard-chamber.

29 IF "Now the rest of the acts of Reho-
boam, and all that he did, are they not writ-
ten in the book of the Chronicles of the kings
of Judah ?

30 And there was Pwar between Reho-

4 Nevertheless, ffor David's sake did the
Lord his God give him a |J lamp in Jerusa-

5 Because David sdid that which was
right in the eyes of the Lord, and turned
not aside from any thing that he commanded

20 So Ben-hadad hearkened unto king
Asa, and sent the captains of the hosts which
he had against the cities of Israel, and smote
^Ijon, and "^Dan, and i" Abel-beth-maachah,

21 And it came to pass, when Baasha

Ramah, and dwelt in Tirzah.

THEN the word of the Lord came to
^ Jehu the son of Hanani against Baasha,
saying,

2 '•Forasmuch as I exalted thee out of the
dust, and made thee prince over my people
Israel, and "thou hast walked in the way of
Jeroboam, and hast made my people Israel
to sin, to provoke me to anger with their
sins;

3 Behold, I will ^take away the posterity
of Baasha, and the posterity of his house ;
and will make thy house like *the house of
Jeroboam the son of Nebat.

4 *"Him that dieth of Baasha in the city
shall the dogs eat; and him that dieth of his
in the fields shall the fowls of the air eat.

5 Now the rest of the acts of Baasha,
and what he did, and his might, s are they
not written in the book of the Chronicles of
the kings of Israel?

6 So Baasha slept with his fathers, and
was buried in ^ Tirzah : and Elah his son
reigned in his stead.

7 And also by the hand of the prophet
'Jehu the son of Hanani came the word of
the Lord against Baasha, and against his
house, even for all the evil that he did in the
sight of the Lord, in provoking him to an-
ger with the work of his hands, in being like
the house of Jeroboam; and because •'he
killed him.

8 IT In the twenty and sixth year of Asa
king of Judah began Elah the son of Baasha
to reign over Israel in Tirzah, two years.

9 'And his servant Zimri, captain of half
Us chariots, conspired against him, as he was
in Tirzah, drinking himself drunk in the
house of Arza, t steward of Us house in
Tirzah.

10 And Zimri went in and smote him,
and killed him, in the twenty and seventh

to reign, as soon as he sat on his throne, that
he slew all the house of Baasha: he left him

of Baasha, "according to the word of the
Lord, which he spake against Baasha t°by
Jehu the prophet,
