So he departed by another way, and returned not by the way that he came into Bethel.
Now a certain old prophet dwelt in Bethel, and his sons came to him, and told him all the works that the man of God had done that day in Bethel: and they told their father the words which he had spoken to the king.
And their father said to them: What way went he? His sons shewed him the way by which the man of God went, who came out of Juda.
And he said to his sons: Saddle me the ass. And when they had saddled it, he got up,
And went after the man of God, and found him sitting under a turpentine tree: and he said to him: Art thou the man of God who camest from Juda? He answered: I am.
And he said to him: Come home with me to eat bread.
But he said: I must not return, nor go with thee, neither will I eat bread, or drink water in this place:
Because the Lord spoke to me, in the word of the Lord, saying: Thou shalt not eat bread, and thou shalt not drink water there, nor return by the way thou wentest.
He said to him: I also am a prophet like unto thee: and an angel spoke to me, in the word of the Lord, saying: Bring him back with thee into thy house, that he may eat bread, and drink water. He deceived him,
And brought him back with him: so he ate bread, and drank water in his house.
And as they sat at table, the word of the Lord came to the prophet that brought him back:
And he cried out to the man of God who came out of Juda, saying: Thus saith the Lord: Because thou hast not been obedient to the Lord, and hast not kept the commandment which the Lord thy God commanded thee,
And hast returned, and eaten bread, and drunk water in the place wherein he commanded thee that thou shouldst not eat bread, nor drink water, thy dead body shall not be brought into the sepulchre of thy fathers.
And when he had eaten and drunk, he saddled his ass for the prophet, whom he had brought back.
And when he was gone, a lion found him in the way, and killed him, and his body was cast in the way: and the ass stood by him, and the lion stood by the dead body.
And behold, men passing by, saw the dead body cast in the way, and the lion standing by the body. And they came and told it in the city, wherein that old prophet dwelt.
