1 Kings 12:1-4 (New Living Translation)

View In My Bible
1 Rehoboam went to Shechem, where all Israel had gathered to make him king. 2 When Jeroboam son of Nebat heard of Solomon's death, he returned from Egypt, a for he had fled to Egypt to escape from King Solomon. 3 The leaders of Israel sent for Jeroboam, and the whole assembly of Israel went to speak with Rehoboam. 4 "Your father was a hard master," they said. "Lighten the harsh labor demands and heavy taxes that your father imposed on us. Then we will be your loyal subjects."
