NIV 5 But the LORD had told Ahijah, "Jeroboam's wife is coming to ask you about her son, for he is ill, and you are to give her such and such an answer. When she arrives, she will pretend to be someone else." KJV 6 And it was so, when Ahijah heard the sound of her feet, as she came in at the door, that he said , Come in , thou wife of Jeroboam; why feignest thou thyself to be another ? for I am sent to thee with heavy tidings. NIV 6 So when Ahijah heard the sound of her footsteps at the door, he said, "Come in, wife of Jeroboam. Why this pretense? I have been sent to you with bad news.
