Chapter 12

  1. 1. And Rehoboam
    H7346
    went
    H3212
    to Shechem:
    H7927
    for all Israel
    H3478
    were come
    H935
    to Shechem
    H7927
    to make him king.
    H4427
  2. 2. And it came to pass, when Jeroboam
    H3379
    the son
    H1121
    of Nebat,
    H5028
    who was yet in Egypt,
    H4714
    heard
    H8085
    of it, (for he was fled
    H1272
    from the presence
    H6440
    of king
    H4428
    Solomon,
    H8010
    and Jeroboam
    H3379
    dwelt
    H3427
    in Egypt;)
    H4714
  3. 3. That they sent
    H7971
    and called
    H7121
    him. And Jeroboam
    H3379
    and all the congregation
    H6951
    of Israel
    H3478
    came,
    H935
    and spake
    H1696
    unto Rehoboam,
    H7346
    saying,
    H559
  4. 4. Thy father
    H1
    made
    H7185
    our yoke
    H5923
    grievous:
    H7185
    now therefore make thou the grievous
    H7186
    service
    H5656
    of thy father,
    H1
    and his heavy
    H3515
    yoke
    H5923
    which he put
    H5414
    upon us, lighter,
    H7043
    and we will serve
    H5647
    thee.
  5. 5. And he said
    H559
    unto them, Depart
    H3212
    yet for three
    H7969
    days,
    H3117
    then come again
    H7725
    to me. And the people
    H5971
    departed.
    H3212
  6. 6. And king
    H4428
    Rehoboam
    H7346
    consulted
    H3289
    with the old men,
    H2205
    that stood
    H5975
    before
    H6440
    Solomon
    H8010
    his father
    H1
    while he yet lived,
    H2416
    and said,
    H559
    How do ye advise
    H3289
    that I may
    H7725
    answer
    H1697
    this people?
    H5971
  7. 7. And they spake
    H1696
    unto him, saying,
    H559
    If thou wilt be a servant
    H5650
    unto this people
    H5971
    this day,
    H3117
    and wilt serve
    H5647
    them, and answer
    H6030
    them, and speak
    H1696
    good
    H2896
    words
    H1697
    to them, then they will be thy servants
    H5650
    for ever.
    H3117
  8. 8. But he forsook
    H5800
    the counsel
    H6098
    of the old men,
    H2205
    which they had given
    H3289
    him, and consulted
    H3289
    with the young men
    H3206
    that were grown up
    H1431
    with him, and which stood
    H5975
    before
    H6440
    him:
  9. 9. And he said
    H559
    unto them, What counsel give
    H3289
    ye that we may
    H7725
    answer
    H1697
    this people,
    H5971
    who have spoken
    H1696
    to me, saying,
    H559
    Make
    H7043
    the yoke
    H5923
    which thy father
    H1
    did put
    H5414
    upon us lighter?
    H7043
  10. 10. And the young men
    H3206
    that were grown up
    H1431
    with him spake
    H1696
    unto him, saying,
    H559
    Thus shalt thou speak
    H559
    unto this people
    H5971
    that spake
    H1696
    unto thee, saying,
    H559
    Thy father
    H1
    made
    H3513
    our yoke
    H5923
    heavy,
    H3513
    but make thou it lighter
    H7043
    unto us; thus shalt thou say
    H1696
    unto them, My little
    H6995
    finger shall be thicker
    H5666
    than my father's
    H1
    loins.
    H4975
  11. 11. And now whereas my father
    H1
    did lade
    H6006
    you with a heavy
    H3515
    yoke,
    H5923
    I will add
    H3254
    to your yoke:
    H5923
    my father
    H1
    hath chastised
    H3256
    you with whips,
    H7752
    but I will chastise
    H3256
    you with scorpions.
    H6137
  12. 12. So Jeroboam
    H3379
    and all the people
    H5971
    came
    H935
    to Rehoboam
    H7346
    the third
    H7992
    day,
    H3117
    as the king
    H4428
    had appointed,
    H1696
    saying,
    H559
    Come to me again
    H7725
    the third
    H7992
    day.
    H3117
  13. 13. And the king
    H4428
    answered
    H6030
    the people
    H5971
    roughly,
    H7186
    and forsook
    H5800
    the old men's
    H2205
    counsel
    H6098
    that they gave
    H3289
    him;
  14. 14. And spake
    H1696
    to them after the counsel
    H6098
    of the young men,
    H3206
    saying,
    H559
    My father
    H1
    made
    H3513
    your yoke
    H5923
    heavy,
    H3513
    and I will add
    H3254
    to your yoke:
    H5923
    my father
    H1
    also chastised
    H3256
    you with whips,
    H7752
    but I will chastise
    H3256
    you with scorpions.
    H6137
  15. 15. Wherefore the king
    H4428
    hearkened
    H8085
    not unto the people;
    H5971
    for the cause
    H5438
    was from the LORD,
    H3068
    that he might perform
    H6965
    his saying,
    H1697
    which the LORD
    H3068
    spake
    H1696
    by
    H3027
    Ahijah
    H281
    the Shilonite
    H7888
    unto Jeroboam
    H3379
    the son
    H1121
    of Nebat.
    H5028
  16. 16. So
    H7725
    when all Israel
    H3478
    saw
    H7200
    that the king
    H4428
    hearkened
    H8085
    not unto them, the people
    H5971
    answered
    H1697
    the king,
    H4428
    saying,
    H559
    What portion
    H2506
    have we in David?
    H1732
    neither have we inheritance
    H5159
    in the son
    H1121
    of Jesse:
    H3448
    to your tents,
    H168
    O Israel:
    H3478
    now see
    H7200
    to thine own house,
    H1004
    David.
    H1732
    So Israel
    H3478
    departed
    H3212
    unto their tents.
    H168
  17. 17. But as for the children
    H1121
    of Israel
    H3478
    which dwelt
    H3427
    in the cities
    H5892
    of Judah,
    H3063
    Rehoboam
    H7346
    reigned
    H4427
    over them.
  18. 18. Then king
    H4428
    Rehoboam
    H7346
    sent
    H7971
    Adoram,
    H151
    who was over the tribute;
    H4522
    and all Israel
    H3478
    stoned
    H7275
    him with stones,
    H68
    that he died.
    H4191
    Therefore king
    H4428
    Rehoboam
    H7346
    made speed
    H553
    to get him up
    H5927
    to his chariot,
    H4818
    to flee
    H5127
    to Jerusalem.
    H3389
  19. 19. So Israel
    H3478
    rebelled
    H6586
    against the house
    H1004
    of David
    H1732
    unto this day.
    H3117
  20. 20. And it came to pass, when all Israel
    H3478
    heard
    H8085
    that Jeroboam
    H3379
    was come again,
    H7725
    that they sent
    H7971
    and called
    H7121
    him unto the congregation,
    H5712
    and made him king
    H4427
    over all Israel:
    H3478
    there was none that followed
    H310
    the house
    H1004
    of David,
    H1732
    but
    H2108
    the tribe
    H7626
    of Judah
    H3063
    only.
  21. 21. And when Rehoboam
    H7346
    was come
    H935
    to Jerusalem,
    H3389
    he assembled
    H6950
    all the house
    H1004
    of Judah,
    H3063
    with the tribe
    H7626
    of Benjamin,
    H1144
    an hundred
    H3967
    and fourscore
    H8084
    thousand
    H505
    chosen men,
    H977
    which were warriors,
    H6213
    H4421
    to fight
    H3898
    against the house
    H1004
    of Israel,
    H3478
    to bring
    H7725
    the kingdom
    H4410
    again
    H7725
    to Rehoboam
    H7346
    the son
    H1121
    of Solomon.
    H8010
  22. 22. But the word
    H1697
    of God
    H430
    came unto Shemaiah
    H8098
    the man
    H376
    of God,
    H430
    saying,
    H559
  23. 23. Speak
    H559
    unto Rehoboam,
    H7346
    the son
    H1121
    of Solomon,
    H8010
    king
    H4428
    of Judah,
    H3063
    and unto all the house
    H1004
    of Judah
    H3063
    and Benjamin,
    H1144
    and to the remnant
    H3499
    of the people,
    H5971
    saying,
    H559
  24. 24. Thus saith
    H559
    the LORD,
    H3068
    Ye shall not go up,
    H5927
    nor fight
    H3898
    against your brethren
    H251
    the children
    H1121
    of Israel:
    H3478
    return
    H7725
    every man
    H376
    to his house;
    H1004
    for this thing
    H1697
    is
    H1961
    from me. They hearkened
    H8085
    therefore to the word
    H1697
    of the LORD,
    H3068
    and returned
    H7725
    to depart,
    H3212
    according to the word
    H1697
    of the LORD.
    H3068
  25. 25. Then Jeroboam
    H3379
    built
    H1129
    Shechem
    H7927
    in mount
    H2022
    Ephraim,
    H669
    and dwelt
    H3427
    therein; and went out
    H3318
    from thence, and built
    H1129
    Penuel.
    H6439
  26. 26. And Jeroboam
    H3379
    said
    H559
    in his heart,
    H3820
    Now shall the kingdom
    H4467
    return
    H7725
    to the house
    H1004
    of David:
    H1732
  27. 27. If this people
    H5971
    go up
    H5927
    to do
    H6213
    sacrifice
    H2077
    in the house
    H1004
    of the LORD
    H3068
    at Jerusalem,
    H3389
    then shall the heart
    H3820
    of this people
    H5971
    turn again
    H7725
    unto their lord,
    H113
    even unto Rehoboam
    H7346
    king
    H4428
    of Judah,
    H3063
    and they shall kill
    H2026
    me, and go again
    H7725
    to Rehoboam
    H7346
    king
    H4428
    of Judah.
    H3063
  28. 28. Whereupon the king
    H4428
    took counsel,
    H3289
    and made
    H6213
    two
    H8147
    calves
    H5695
    of gold,
    H2091
    and said
    H559
    unto them, It is too much
    H7227
    for you to go up
    H5927
    to Jerusalem:
    H3389
    behold thy gods,
    H430
    O Israel,
    H3478
    which brought thee up
    H5927
    out of the land
    H776
    of Egypt.
    H4714
  29. 29. And he set
    H7760
    the one
    H259
    in Bethel,
    H1008
    and the other
    H259
    put
    H5414
    he in Dan.
    H1835
  30. 30. And this thing
    H1697
    became a sin:
    H2403
    for the people
    H5971
    went
    H3212
    to worship before
    H6440
    the one,
    H259
    even unto Dan.
    H1835
  31. 31. And he made
    H6213
    an house
    H1004
    of high places,
    H1116
    and made
    H6213
    priests
    H3548
    of the lowest
    H7098
    of the people,
    H5971
    which were not of the sons
    H1121
    of Levi.
    H3878
  32. 32. And Jeroboam
    H3379
    ordained
    H6213
    a feast
    H2282
    in the eighth
    H8066
    month,
    H2320
    on the fifteenth
    H6240
    H2568
    day
    H3117
    of the month,
    H2320
    like unto the feast
    H2282
    that is in Judah,
    H3063
    and he offered
    H5927
    upon the altar.
    H4196
    So did
    H6213
    he in Bethel,
    H1008
    sacrificing
    H2076
    unto the calves
    H5695
    that he had made:
    H6213
    and he placed
    H5975
    in Bethel
    H1008
    the priests
    H3548
    of the high places
    H1116
    which he had made.
    H6213
  33. 33. So he offered
    H5927
    upon the altar
    H4196
    which he had made
    H6213
    in Bethel
    H1008
    the fifteenth
    H6240
    H2568
    day
    H3117
    of the eighth
    H8066
    month,
    H2320
    even in the month
    H2320
    which he had devised
    H908
    of his own heart;
    H3820
    and ordained
    H6213
    a feast
    H2282
    unto the children
    H1121
    of Israel:
    H3478
    and he offered
    H5927
    upon the altar,
    H4196
    and burnt incense.
