1 In tempore illo aegrotavit Abia filius Ieroboam,
2 dixitque Ieroboam uxori suae: "Surge et commuta habitum, ne cognoscaris quod sis uxor Ieroboam, et vade in Silo, ubi est Ahias propheta, qui locutus est mihi quod regnaturus essem super populum hunc.
3 Tolle quoque in manu tua decem panes et crustula et vas mellis et vade ad illum: ipse indicabit tibi quid eventurum sit puero".
4 Fecit, ut dixerat, uxor Ieroboam et consurgens abiit in Silo et venit in domum Ahiae; at ille non poterat videre, quia caligaverant oculi eius prae senectute.
5 Dixerat autem Dominus ad Ahiam: "Ecce uxor Ieroboam ingredietur, ut consulat te super filio suo, qui aegrotat; haec et haec loqueris ei. Cum intret, simulabit se peregrinam esse".
6 Cum ergo audiret Ahias sonitum pedum eius introeuntis per ostium, ait: "Ingredere, uxor Ieroboam. Quare aliam te esse simulas? Ego autem missus sum ad te durus nuntius.
7 Vade et dic Ieroboam: "Haec dicit Dominus, Deus Israel: Quia exaltavi te de medio populi et dedi te ducem super populum meum Israel
8 et scidi regnum a domo David et dedi illud tibi, et non fuisti sicut servus meus David, qui custodivit mandata mea et secutus est me in toto corde suo faciens quod placitum esset in conspectu meo,
9 sed operatus es mala super omnes, qui fuerunt ante te, et fecisti tibi deos alienos et conflatiles, ut me ad iracundiam provocares, me autem proiecisti post tergum tuum:
10 idcirco ecce ego inducam mala super domum Ieroboam et percutiam de Ieroboam quidquid masculini sexus, impuberem et puberem in Israel; et mundabo reliquias domus Ieroboam, sicut mundari solet fimus usque ad purum.
11 Qui mortui fuerint de Ieroboam in civitate, comedent eos canes; qui autem mortui fuerint in agro, vorabunt eos aves caeli, quia Dominus locutus est.
12 Tu igitur surge et vade in domum tuam, et in ipso introitu pedum tuorum in urbem morietur puer,
13 et planget eum omnis Israel et sepeliet; iste enim solus inferetur de Ieroboam in sepulcrum, quia inventum est in eo, quod bonum erat Domino, Deo Israel, in domo Ieroboam.
14 Constituet autem sibi Dominus regem super Israel, qui percutiat domum Ieroboam.
15 Et percutiet Dominus Israel, ut moveatur sicut arundo in aqua, et evellet Israel de terra bona hac, quam dedit patribus eorum; et ventilabit eos trans Flumen, quia fecerunt sibi palos, ut irritarent Dominum.
16 Et tradet Dominus Israel propter peccata Ieroboam, qui peccavit et peccare fecit Israel" ".
17 Surrexit itaque uxor Ieroboam et abiit et venit in Thersa; cumque illa ingrederetur limen domus, puer mortuus est.
18 Et sepelierunt eum, et planxit illum omnis Israel iuxta sermonem Domini, quem locutus est in manu servi sui Ahiae prophetae.
19 Reliqua autem gestorum Ieroboam, quomodo pugnaverit et quomodo regnaverit, ecce scripta sunt in libro annalium regum Israel.
20 Dies autem, quibus regnavit Ieroboam, viginti duo anni sunt; et dormivit cum patribus suis. Regnavitque Nadab filius eius pro eo.
21 Porro Roboam filius Salomonis regnavit in Iuda. Quadraginta et unius anni erat Roboam, cum regnare coepisset, et decem et septem annos regnavit in Ierusalem civitate, quam elegit Dominus, ut poneret nomen suum ibi ex omnibus tribubus Israel. Nomen autem matris eius Naama Ammanites.
22 Et fecit Iuda malum coram Domino, et irritaverunt eum super omnibus, quae fecerant patres eorum in peccatis suis, quae peccaverant;
23 aedificaverunt enim et ipsi sibi excelsa et lapides et palos super omnem collem excelsum et subter omnem arborem frondosam.
24 Sed et prostibula fuerunt in terra; feceruntque omnes abominationes gentium, quas attrivit Dominus ante faciem filiorum Israel.
25 In quinto autem anno regni Roboam ascendit Sesac rex Aegypti in Ierusalem
26 et tulit thesauros domus Domini et thesauros regios et universa diripuit, scuta quoque aurea omnia, quae fecerat Salomon.
27 Pro quibus fecit rex Roboam scuta aerea et tradidit ea in manu ducum cursorum, qui excubabant ante ostium domus regis.
28 Cumque ingrederetur rex in domum Domini, portabant ea cursores et postea reportabant ad armamentarium cursorum.
29 Reliqua autem gestorum Roboam et omnia, quae fecit, ecce scripta sunt in libro annalium regum Iudae.
30 Fuitque bellum inter Roboam et Ieroboam cunctis diebus.
31 Dormivit itaque Roboam cum patribus suis et sepultus est cum eis in civitate David; nomen autem matris eius Naama Ammanites. Et regnavit Abiam filius eius pro eo.
King James Version
1 At that time Abijah the son of Jeroboam fell sick.
2 And Jeroboam said to his wife, Arise, I pray thee, and disguise thyself, that thou be not known to be the wife of Jeroboam; and get thee to Shiloh: behold, there is Ahijah the prophet, which told me that I should be king over this people.
3 And take with thee ten loaves, and cracknels, and a cruse of honey, and go to him: he shall tell thee what shall become of the child.
4 And Jeroboam's wife did so, and arose, and went to Shiloh, and came to the house of Ahijah. But Ahijah could not see; for his eyes were set by reason of his age.
5 ¶ And the LORD said 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 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 my people Israel,
8 And rent the kingdom away from the house of David, and gave it thee: and yet thou hast not been as my servant David, who kept my commandments, and who followed me with all his heart, to do that only which was right in mine eyes;
9 But hast done evil above all that were before thee: for thou hast gone and made thee other gods, and molten images, to provoke me to anger, and hast cast me behind thy back:
10 Therefore, behold, I will bring evil upon the house of Jeroboam, and will cut off from Jeroboam him that pisseth against the wall, and him that is shut up and left in Israel, and will take away the remnant of the house of Jeroboam, as a man taketh away dung, till it be all gone.
11 Him that dieth of Jeroboam in the city shall the dogs eat; and him that dieth in the field shall the fowls of the air eat: for the LORD hath spoken it.
12 Arise thou therefore, get thee to thine own house: and when thy feet enter into the city, the child shall die.
13 And all Israel shall mourn for him, and bury him: for he only of Jeroboam shall come to the grave, because in him there is found some good thing toward the LORD God of Israel in the house of Jeroboam.
14 Moreover the LORD shall raise him up a king over Israel, who shall cut off the house of Jeroboam that day: but what? even now.
15 For the LORD shall smite Israel, as a reed is shaken in the water, and he shall root up Israel out of this good land, which he gave to their fathers, and shall scatter them beyond the river, because they have made their groves, provoking the LORD to anger.
16 And he shall give Israel up because of the sins of Jeroboam, who did sin, and who made Israel to sin.
17 ¶ And Jeroboam's wife arose, and departed, and came to Tirzah: and when she came to the threshold of the door, the child died;
18 And they buried him; and all Israel mourned for him, according to the word of the LORD, which he spake by the hand of his servant Ahijah the prophet.
19 And the rest of the acts of Jeroboam, how he warred, and how he reigned, behold, they are written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Israel.
20 And the days which Jeroboam reigned were two and twenty years: and he slept with his fathers, and Nadab his son reigned in his stead.
21 ¶ And Rehoboam the son of Solomon reigned in Judah. Rehoboam was forty and one years old when he began to reign, and he reigned seventeen years in Jerusalem, the city which the LORD did choose out of all the tribes of Israel, to put his name there. And his mother's name was Naamah an Ammonitess.
22 And Judah did evil in the sight of the LORD, and they provoked him to jealousy with their sins which they had committed, above all that their fathers had done.
23 For they also built them high places, and images, and groves, on every high hill, and under every green tree.
24 And there were also sodomites in the land: and they did according to all the abominations of the nations which the LORD cast out before the children of Israel.
25 ¶ And it came to pass in the fifth year of king Rehoboam, that Shishak king of Egypt came up against Jerusalem:
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.
27 And king Rehoboam made in their stead brasen shields, and committed them unto the hands of the chief of the guard, which kept the door of the king's house.
28 And it was so, when the king went into the house of the LORD, that the guard bare them, and brought them back into the guard chamber.
29 ¶ Now the rest of the acts of Rehoboam, and all that he did, are they not written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Judah?
30 And there was war between Rehoboam and Jeroboam all their days.
31 And Rehoboam slept with his fathers, and was buried with his fathers in the city of David. And his mother's name was Naamah an Ammonitess. And Abijam his son reigned in his stead.
