2 Chronicles 11:13

And the priests and the Levites, that were in all Israel
In the ten tribes, in the cities assigned to them therein:

resorted to him out of all their coasts;
as to their rightful sovereign, and chiefly for the sake of the service of the sanctuary at Jerusalem.

2 Chronicles 11:13 In-Context

11 And he fortified the strong holds, and put captains in them, and store of victual, and of oil and wine.
12 And in every several city he put shields and spears, and made them exceeding strong, having Judah and Benjamin on his side.
13 And the priests and the Levites that were in all Israel resorted to him out of all their coasts.
14 For the Levites left their suburbs and their possession, and came to Judah and Jerusalem: for Jeroboam and his sons had cast them off from executing the priest's office unto the LORD:
15 And he ordained him priests for the high places, and for the devils, and for the calves which he had made.
