2 and Jeroboam said to his wife, 'Come, please disguise yourself so that no one will recognise you as Jeroboam's wife, and go to Shiloh; the prophet Ahijah is there, the man who said I was to be king of this people.
1Sam 28:8 2Sam 14:2 2Chr 18:29 1Kgs 11:29-38 1Kgs 14:5-6 1Kgs 22:30 Josh 18:1
3 Go to him, and take ten loaves and some savoury food and a jar of honey; he will tell you what will happen to the child.'
1Sam 9:7-8 1Kgs 13:7 2Kgs 4:42 2Kgs 1:2 2Kgs 5:5 2Kgs 5:15 2Kgs 8:7-9
4 Jeroboam's wife did this: she set out, went to Shiloh and came to Ahijah's house.
1Kgs 11:29 1Sam 3:2 1Sam 4:15 1Kgs 14:2 1Sam 4:3-4 Deut 34:7 Eccl 12:3
5 Now Ahijah could not see, his eyes were fixed with age, but Yahweh had told him, 'Jeroboam's wife is now on her way to ask you for a prophecy about her son, as he is sick. You will tell her such and such. When she comes, she will pretend to be some other woman.'
2Kgs 4:27 2Kgs 6:8-12 Acts 10:19-20 Amos 3:7 Ps 139:1-4 Prov 21:30
6 So when Ahijah heard her footsteps at the door, he called, 'Come in, wife of Jeroboam; why pretend to be someone else? I have bad news for you.

7 Go and tell Jeroboam, "Yahweh, God of Israel, says this: I raised you from the people and made you leader of my people Israel;
1Kgs 16:2 2Sam 12:7-8 1Kgs 12:24 1Sam 2:27-30 1Sam 15:16
8 I tore the kingdom from the House of David and gave it to you. But you have not been like my servant David who kept my commandments and followed me with all his heart, doing only what I regard as right;

9 you have done more evil than all your predecessors, you have gone and made yourself other gods, idols of cast metal, provoking my anger, and you have turned your back on me.
1Kgs 12:28 2Chr 11:15 Ezek 23:35 Neh 9:26 Ps 50:17 Exod 34:17 1Cor 10:22
10 For this I shall bring disaster on the House of Jeroboam, I shall wipe out every manjack of the family of Jeroboam, fettered or free in Israel, I shall sweep away the House of Jeroboam as a man sweeps dung away till none is left.
1Kgs 21:21 2Kgs 14:26 Deut 32:36 2Kgs 9:8-9 1Kgs 15:25-30 1Kgs 16:11 1Sam 2:30
11 Those of Jeroboam's family who die in the city, the dogs will eat; and those who die in the open country, the birds of the air will eat, for Yahweh has spoken."
1Kgs 16:4 1Kgs 21:19 1Kgs 21:23-24 Ezek 39:17-19 Isa 66:24 Jer 15:3 Rev 19:17-18
12 Now get up and go home; at the moment your feet enter the town, the child will die.
1Kgs 14:3 1Kgs 14:16-17 2Kgs 1:6 2Kgs 1:16 John 4:50-52
13 All Israel will mourn for him, and bury him; and he alone of Jeroboam's family will have a proper burial, for in him alone of the House of Jeroboam can Yahweh, God of Israel, find anything good.
2Chr 19:3 2Chr 12:12 2Pet 2:8-9 Ezek 18:14-32 Jer 22:10 Jer 22:18 Job 19:28
14 Yahweh will set a king over Israel, who will put an end to the House of Jeroboam.
1Kgs 15:27-29 2Pet 2:3 Eccl 8:11 Ezek 7:2-7 Ezek 12:22-28 Jas 5:9
15 Yahweh will make Israel shake, till it quivers like a reed in the water; he will uproot Israel from this prosperous land which he gave to their ancestors and scatter them beyond the River for provoking Yahweh to anger by making their sacred poles.
2Kgs 15:29 Josh 23:15-16 Ps 52:5 Deut 12:3-4 Exod 34:13-14 Prov 2:22 1Kgs 14:9
16 He will abandon Israel for the sins which Jeroboam has committed and made Israel commit.'

17 Jeroboam's wife rose and left. She arrived at Tirzah, and when she crossed the threshold of the palace, the child was already dead.

18 They buried him, and all Israel mourned for him, just as Yahweh had foretold through his servant Ahijah the prophet.
19 The rest of the history of Jeroboam, what wars he waged, how he governed, this is recorded in the Book of the Annals of the Kings of Israel.
2Chr 13:2-20 1Chr 27:24 1Kgs 14:29-30 1Kgs 15:31 1Kgs 16:5 1Kgs 16:14 1Kgs 16:20
20 Jeroboam's reign lasted twenty-two years. Then he fell asleep with his ancestors; his son Nadab succeeded him.
1Kgs 2:10 1Kgs 11:43 1Kgs 15:25-31 Job 14:12 Ps 3:5 Ps 4:8
21 In Judah, Rehoboam son of Solomon became king; he was forty-one years old when he came to the throne and he reigned for seventeen years in Jerusalem, the city which Yahweh had chosen out of all the tribes of Israel, to give his name a home there. His mother's name was Naamah, the Ammonite.
2Chr 12:13 1Kgs 11:36 1Kgs 14:31 1Kgs 8:16 1Kgs 8:44 1Kgs 11:32 1Kgs 11:43
22 He did what is displeasing to Yahweh, arousing his resentment more than his ancestors by all the sins which they had committed;
2Chr 12:1 1Cor 10:22 Ps 78:58 1Kgs 14:9 1Kgs 16:30 2Chr 12:14 2Kgs 17:19
23 they had built themselves high places, and had set up pillars and sacred poles on every high hill and under every spreading tree.
Deut 12:2 Isa 57:5 2Kgs 17:9-10 Ezek 16:24-25 1Kgs 3:2 1Kgs 14:15 2Chr 28:4
24 There were even male sacred prostitutes in the country. He copied all the shameful practices of the nations whom Yahweh had dispossessed for the Israelites.
Deut 23:17 1Kgs 15:12 2Kgs 23:7 1Cor 6:9 1Kgs 22:46 Gen 19:5 Judg 19:22
25 And so it happened that in the fifth year of King Rehoboam, Shishak king of Egypt advanced on Jerusalem
1Kgs 11:40 2Chr 12:2-4 2Chr 12:9
26 and carried off all the treasures of the Temple of Yahweh and the treasures of the royal palace; he took everything away, including all the golden shields which Solomon had made.
1Kgs 15:18 2Chr 9:15-16 1Kgs 7:51 1Kgs 10:16-17 2Chr 12:9-11 2Kgs 24:13 Eccl 2:18-19
27 To replace those King Rehoboam made bronze shields, entrusting them to the commanders of the guard who guarded the king's palace gate.
1Sam 8:11 1Sam 22:17 1Kgs 14:1 1Kgs 14:5 1Kgs 18:46 2Sam 15:1 Lam 4:1-2
28 Whenever the king went to the Temple of Yahweh, the guards would carry them, returning them to the guardroom afterwards.
29 The rest of the history of Rehoboam, his entire career, is this not recorded in the Book of the Annals of the Kings of Judah?
