Rehoboam's Folly

1 1Rehoboam went to 2Shechem, for all Israel had come to Shechem to make him king. 2 And as soon as 3Jeroboam the son of Nebat heard of it (for 4he was still in Egypt, where he had fled from King Solomon), then Jeroboam returned froma Egypt. 3 And they sent and called him, and Jeroboam and all the assembly of Israel came and said to Rehoboam, 4 5"Your father made our yoke heavy. Now therefore lighten the hard service of your father and his heavy yoke on us, and we will serve you."
