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.
For the LORD shall smiteIsrael, as a reed is shaken in the water, and he shall root upIsrael out of this goodland, which he gave to their fathers, and shall scatter them beyond the river, because they have made their groves, provoking the LORD to anger .
And he shall giveIsraelupbecause of the sins of Jeroboam, who did sin , and who made Israel to sin .
And Jeroboam'swifearose , and departed , and came to Tirzah: and when she came to the threshold of the door, the childdied ;
And they buried him; and all Israelmourned for him, according to the word of the LORD, which he spake by the hand of his servantAhijah 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 chroniclesof the kings of Israel.20
And the days which Jeroboamreigned were two and twentyyears: and he slepta with his fathers, and Nadab his sonreigned in his stead.
And Rehoboam the son of Solomonreigned in Judah.Rehoboam was forty and oneyearsold when he began to reign , and he reignedseventeenyears in Jerusalem, the city which the LORD did choose out of all the tribes of Israel, to put his name there. And his mother'sname was Naamah an Ammonitess.22
And Judahdidevil 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 .
For they also built them high places, and images,b and groves, on every highhill, and under every greentree.24
And there were also sodomites in the land: and they did according to all the abominations of the nations which the LORD cast outbefore the children of Israel.
