AND, behold, there came a man of God out of Judah by the 1 or, offer. word of the LORD unto Beth-el: and a Jeroboam stood by the altar b 2K1.23.15
to 1 burn incense.
2 And he cried against the altar in the word of the LORD, and said, O altar, altar, thus saith the LORD; Behold, a child shall be born unto the house of David, Josiah by name; and upon thee shall b he offer the priests of the high places that burn incense upon thee, and men's bones shall be burnt upon thee.
3 And he gave a sign c the same day, saying, This is the sign which the LORD hath spoken; Behold, the altar shall be rent, and the ashes) that are upon it shall be poured out. 4 And it came to pass, when king Jeroboam heard the saying of the man of God, which had cried against the altar in Beth-el, that he put forth his hand from the altar, saying, d Lay hold on him. And his hand, which he put forth against him, dried up, so that he could not pull it in again to him.

6 And the king answered and said unto the man of God, Entreat ƒ now the face of the LORD thy God, and k ver.8,9. pray for me, that my hand may be restored me again. And the man of God besought 2 the LORD, and the king's hand was restored him again, and became as it was before. 7 And the king said unto the man of God, Come home with me, and refresh thyself, and I will give thee ag reward.
8 And the man of God said unto the king, If h thou wilt give me half thine house, I will not go in with thee, neither will I eat bread nor drink water in this place:

9 For so was it charged me by the word of the LORD, saying, Eat i no bread, nor drink water, nor turn r again by the same way that thou camest.
10 So he went another way, and returned not by the way that he came to Beth-el.
11 Now there dwelt an old prophet in Beth-el; and his 3 sons came and told him all the works
ch. 14. 13.
2 Ch.21.20. Is. 14. 18-20.
The prophet is reproved. that the man of God had done that day in Beth-el: the words which he had spoken unto the king, them they told also to their father.
12 And their father said unto them, What way went he? For his sons had seen what way the man of God went, which came from Judah.
13 And he said unto his sons, Saddle me the ass. So they saddled him the ass: and he rode thereon,
14 And went after the man of God, and found him sitting under an oak: and he said unto him, Art thou the man of God that camest from Judah? And he said, I am.
15 Then he said unto him, Come home with me, and cat bread.
16 And he said, I may knot return with thee, nor go in with thee: neither will I eat bread nor drink water with thee in this place:
17 For 4 it was said to me by l the word of the LORD, Thou shalt eat no bread nor drink water there, nor turn again to go by the way that thou camest.
18 He said unto him, I am a prophet also as thou art; and an angel spake unto me by the word of the LORD, saying, Bring him back with thee into thine house, that he may eat bread and drink water. But he lied m unto him.
19 So n he went back with him, and did eat bread in his house, and drank water.
20 And it came to pass, as they sat at the table, that the word of the LORD came unto the prophet that brought him back:
21 And he cried unto the man of God that came from Judah, saying, Thus saith the LORD, Forasmuch o as thou hast disobeyed the mouth of the LORD, and hast not kept the commandment which the LORD thy God commanded thee,
22 But camest back, and hast eaten p bread and drunk water in the place of the which the LORD did say q to thee, Eat no bread, and drink no water; thy carcass r shall not come unto the sepulchre of thy fathers.
23 And it came to pass, after he had eaten bread, and after he had drunk, that he saddled for him the ass, to wit, for the prophet whom he had brought back.
24 And when he was gone, a lion s met him by the way, and slew him: and his carcass was cast in the way, and the ass stood by it, the lion also stood by the carcass.
25 And, behold, men passed by, and saw the carcass cast in the way, and the lion standing by the carcass and they came and told it
returned and made.
2Ti.3.13. filled his hand,
29 And the prophet took up the carcass of the man of God, and laid it upon the ass, and brought it z ch.14.10. back and the old prophet came to the city, to mourn and to bury him. 30 And he laid his carcass in his own grave: and they mourned over him, saying. Alas, u my brother!
31 And it came to pass, after he had buried him, that he spake tol his sons, saying, When I am dead, then bury me in the sepulchre wherein the man of God is buried; lay
my bones beside his bones: 32 For the saving which he cried by the word of the LORD against the altar in Beth-el, and against all the houses of the high places which are in the cities of Samaria, w shall surely come to pass.

And the LORD sade unto Ahijah, Behold the wife of Jeroboam 'cometh to ask a thing of thee for her son, for he is sick: thus and thus shalt thou say unto her: for it shall be, when she cometh in, that she shall feign herself to be another woman.
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 5 heavy tidings.
7 Go, tell Jeroboam, Thus saith 'the LORD God of Israel, Forasmuch as I exalted thee from among the people, and made thee prince over ny people Israel,

26 And he took away the treasures of the house of the LORD, and the treasures of the king's house; he even took away all: and he took away all the shields of gold / which Solomon had made.
Nebat reigned Abijam over Judah. 2 Three years reigned he in Jerusalem. And b his mother's name was c Maachah, the daughter of Abishalom. d
3 And he walked in all the sins of his father, which he had done before him: and his heart e was not perfect with the LORD his God, as the heart of David his father.
4 Nevertheless ƒ for David's sake did the LORD his God give him a 1 lamp in Jerusalem, to set up his son after him, and to establish Jerusalem:
5 Because David did that which was right in the eyes of the LORD, and turned not aside from any thing that he commanded him all the days of his life, save only in the matter of Uriah the Hittite.
6 And there was war between Rehoboam and Jeroboam all the days of his life.
7 Now the rest of the acts of Abijam, and all that he did, are they not written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Judah? And there was war between Abijam and Jeroboan.
8 And g Abijam slept with his fathers and they buried him in the city of David and Asa his son reigned in his stead.
9 And in the twentieth year of Jeroboam king of Israel reigned Asa over Judah.
10 And forty and one years reigned he in Jerusalem. And his 2 mother's name was Maachah, the daughter of Abishalom.
11 And Asa did that which was right in the eyes of the LORD, as did David his father.
12 And he took away the sodomites out of the land, and removed all the idols that his fathers had made.

smote him at y Gibbethon, which belonged to the Philistines; (for Nadab and all Israel laid siege to Gibbethon.)
28 Even in the third year of Asa king of Judah did Baasha slay him, and reigned in his stead.
29 And it came to pass, when he reigned, that he smote all the house of Jeroboam; he left not to Jeroboam any that breathed, until he had destroyed him, according unto the saying z of the LORD, which he spake by his servant Ahijah the Shilonite:
30 Because of the sins of Jeroboam which he sinned, and which he made Israel sin, by his provocation wherewith he provoked a the LORD God of Israel to anger.
31 Now the rest of the acts of Nadab, and all that he did, are they not written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Israel? 32 And b there was war between Asa and Baasha king of Israel all their days.
33 In the third year of Asa king of Judah began Baasha the son of Ahijah to reign over all Israel in Tirzah, twenty and four years.

24 And Asa slept with his fathers, and was buried with his fathers 5 ch.14.11. in the city of David his father:
HEN the word of the LORD came to Jehu a the son of Hanani, against Baasha, b saying, 2 Forasmuch c as I exalted thee out of the dust, and made thee prince over my people Israel; and thou hast walked in the way d of Jeroboam, and haste made my people Israel to sin, to provoke me to anger with their sins;
3 Behold, I will f take away the posterity of Baasha, and the pos terity of his house; and will make thy house like the house of Jeroboam the son of Nebat.

5 Now the rest of the acts of Baasha, and what he did, and his might, are they not written h in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Israel? 6 So Baasha slept with his fathers, Ex.20.5. and was buried in Tirzah: i and Elah his son reigned in his stead. 7 And also by the hand of the prophet Jehu the son of Hanani came the word of the LORD against Baasha, and against his house, l even for all the evil that he did in the sight of the LORD, in m provok-which was ing him to anger with the work of his hands, in being like the house of Jeroboam; and because n he killed him.
8 In the twenty and sixth year of Asa king of Judah began Elah the son of Baasha to reign over Israel in Tirzah, two years.

9 And his servant Zimri, o (captain 3 by the hand of half his chariots,) conspired of. against him, as he was in Tirzah, s ch.15.30. drinking himself drunk p in the 't De.32.21. house of Arza, 1 steward of his house in Tirzah.
1Sa, 12-21. Is.41.29. Jon.2.8. Ro. 1.21-23. 1 Cor.8.4. 10.19.
10 And Zimri went in and smote him, and killed him, in the twenty and seventh year of Asa king of Judah, and reigned in his stead. 11 And it came to pass, when u ver.8. he began to reign, as soon as he sat v ch. 15.27. on his throne, that he slew all the house of Baasha: he left him not one q that pisseth against a wall, 2 neither of his kinsfolks, nor of his friends.
w 2Sa. 17.23. Ps.9.16.
12 Thus did Zimri destroy all the house of Baasha, according to the word of the LORD, which he spaker y against Baasha 3 by Jehu the prophet,
19.2. Mat. 12.25.
13 For all the sins of Baasha, and the sins of Elah his son, by which z 2Ch.22.2. they sinned, and by which they 4 Shomeron. made Israel to sin, in provoking s a ch.13.32. the LORD God of Israel to anger
with their vanities.t
14 Now the rest of the acts of Elah, and all that he did, are they not written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Israel? 15 In the twenty and seventh year of Asa king of Judah did Zimri | reign seven days in Tirzah.u And the people were encamped against Gibbethon, v which belonged to the Philistines.
Jno.4.4. Acts 8.5-8. b Mi.6.16.

5 was it a light thing?
16 And the people that were encamped heard say, Zimri hath con- f Eze.8.17. spired, and hath also slain the king: wherefore all Israel made g De.7.13. Umri, the captain of the host, king over Israel that day in the camp.
Jos. 13. 12, 13.
17 And Omri went up from Gib
Omri's wicked reign. bethon, and all Israel with him, and they besieged Tirzah.
18 And it came to pass, when Zimri saw that the city was taken, that he went into the palace of the king's house, and burnt the king's house over him w with fire, and died.
19 For his sins which he sinned in doing evil in the sight of the LORD, in walking in the way of Jeroboam, and in his sin which he did, to make Israel to sin.
20 Now the rest of the acts of Zimri, and his treason that he wrought, are they not written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Israel?
21 Then were the people of Israel divided y into two parts: half of the people followed Tibni the son of Ginath, to make him king; and half followed Omri.
22 But the people that followed Omri prevailed against the people that followed Tibni the son of Ginath so Tibni died, and Omri reigned.
23 In the thirty and first year of Asa king of Judah began Omri z to reign over Israel, twelve years: six years reigned he in Tirzah.
24 And he bought the hill Samaria of Shemer for two talents of silver, and built on the hill, and called the name of the city which he built, after the name of Shemer, owner of the hill, 4 Samaria.a
25 But Omri wrought evil b in the eyes of the LORD, and did worse than all that were before him.
26 For he walked c in all the way of Jeroboam the son of Nebat, and and in his sin wherewith he made Israel to sin, to provoke the LORD God of Israel to anger with their vanities.d
27 Now the rest of the acts of Omri which he did, and his might that he showed, are they not written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Israel?
28 So Omri slept with his fathers, and was buried in Samaria: and Ahab his son reigned in his stead.
29 And in the thirty and eighth year of Asa king of Judah began Ahab the son of Omri to reign over Israel and Ahab the son of Omri reigned over Israel in Samaria twenty and two years.
30 And Ahab the son of Omri did evil in the sight of the LORD above e all that were before him.
31 And it came to pass, 5 as if it had been a light f thing for him to walk in the sins of Jeroboam the son of Nebat, that he took to wife g Jezebel the daughter of Ethbaal
