But God said to Shemaiah, the man of God,
"Say to Rehoboam son of Solomon, king of Judah, and to all the people of Judah and Benjamin,
'This is what the LORD says: Do not fight against your relatives, the Israelites. Go back home, for what has happened is my doing!'" So they obeyed the message of the LORD and went home, as the LORD had commanded.
