Jeroboam Warned, Stricken

1 Now behold, there came 1a man of God from Judah to Bethel by the word of the LORD, while Jeroboam was standing by the altar 2to burn incense. 2 3He cried against the altar by the word of the LORD, and said, "O altar, altar, thus says the LORD, 'Behold, a son shall be born to the house of David, 4Josiah by name; and on you he shall sacrifice the priests of the high places who burn incense on you, and human bones shall be burned on you.' " 3 Then he gave a asign the same day, saying, "5This is the bsign which the LORD has spoken, 'Behold, the altar shall be split apart and the cashes which are on it shall be poured out.' " 4 Now when the king heard the saying of the man of God, which he cried against the altar in Bethel, Jeroboam stretched out his hand from the altar, saying, "Seize him." But his hand which he stretched out against him dried up, so that he could not draw it back to himself. 5 The altar also was split apart and the dashes were poured out from the altar, according to the esign which the man of God had given by the word of the LORD. 6 The king said to the man of God, "Please f6entreat the LORD your God, and pray for me, that my hand may be restored to me." So 7the man of God gentreated the LORD, and the king's hand was restored to him, and it became as it was before. 7 Then the king said to the man of God, "Come home with me and refresh yourself, and 8I will give you a reward." 8 But the man of God said to the king, "9If you were to give me half your house I would not go with you, nor would I eat bread or drink water in this place. 9 "For so hit was commanded me by the word of the LORD, saying, 'You shall eat no bread, nor drink water, nor return by the way which you came.' " 10 So he went another way and did not return by the way which he came to Bethel.
