1 Kings 14 ©
Abijah, Jeroboam's son, being sick, Jeroboam sendeth his wife in disguise with presents to enquire of Ahijah the prophet. Ahijah, forewarned by God of her coming, denounceth God's judgments against Jeroboam's house. Abijah dieth, and is buried. Jeroboam dieth, and is succeeded by Nadab. Rehoboam's wicked reign. Shishak king of Egypt carrieth away much treasure from Jerusalem. Rehoboam dieth, and is succeeded by Abijam.
AT that atime Abijah the son of Jeroboam bfell sick.
And Jeroboam said to his wife, Arise, I pray thee, and cdisguise thyself, that thou be not known to be the wife of Jeroboam; and get thee to dShiloh: behold, there is Ahijah the prophet, which told me that eI should be king over this people.
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 4were set by reason of his age.
Therefore, behold, oI will bring evil upon the house of Jeroboam, and will cut off from Jeroboam phim 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 qdung, till it be all gone.
Arise thou therefore, get thee to thine own house: and swhen thy feet enter into the city, the child shall die.
For the LORD xshall smite Israel, as a reed is shaken in the water, and he shall yroot up Israel out of this zgood land, which he gave to their fathers, and shall scatter them beyond the river, abecause they have made their groves, provoking the LORD to anger.
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.
And the days which Jeroboam reigned were two and twenty years: and he 6slept with his fathers, and Nadab his son reigned in his *stead.
¶And Rehoboam the son of Solomon reigned in Judah. gRehoboam was forty and one years old when he began to reign, and he reigned seventeen years in Jerusalem, the city hwhich the LORD did choose out of all the tribes of Israel, to put his name there. And his mother's name was Naamah an iAmmonitess.
And Judah jdid evil in the sight of the LORD, and they provoked him kto jealousy with their sins which they had committed, labove all that their fathers had done.
¶And it came to pass in the fifth year of king Rehoboam, that qShishak king of Egypt came up against Jerusalem:
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.
