1 Kings 12


1 Kings 12:1 Then Rehoboam went to Shechem, for all Israel had come to Shechem to make him king.
1 Kings 12:2 Now when Jeroboam the son of Nebat heard of it, he was living in Egypt (for he was yet in Egypt, where he had fled from the presence of King Solomon).
1 Kings 12:3 Then they sent and called him, and Jeroboam and all the assembly of Israel came and spoke to Rehoboam, saying,
1 Kings 12:4 "Your father made our yoke hard; now therefore lighten the hard service of your father and his heavy yoke which he put on us, and we will serve you."
1 Kings 12:5 Then he said to them, "Depart for three days, then return to me." So the people departed.
1 Kings 12:6 King Rehoboam consulted with the elders who had served his father Solomon while he was still alive, saying, "How do you counsel me to answer this people?"
1 Kings 12:7 Then they spoke to him, saying, "If you will be a servant to this people today, and will serve them and grant them their petition, and speak good words to them, then they will be your servants forever."
1 Kings 12:8 But he forsook the counsel of the elders which they had given him, and consulted with the young men who grew up with him and served him.
1 Kings 12:9 So he said to them, "What counsel do you give that we may answer this people who have spoken to me, saying, 'Lighten the yoke which your father put on us'?"
1 Kings 12:10 The young men who grew up with him spoke to him, saying, "Thus you shall say to this people who spoke to you, saying, 'Your father made our yoke heavy, now you make it lighter for us!' But you shall speak to them, 'My little finger is thicker than my father's loins!
1 Kings 12:11 Whereas my father loaded you with a heavy yoke, I will add to your yoke; my father disciplined you with whips, but I will discipline you with scorpions.'"
1 Kings 12:12 Then Jeroboam and all the people came to Rehoboam on the third day as the king had directed, saying, "Return to me on the third day."
1 Kings 12:13 The king answered the people harshly, for he forsook the advice of the elders which they had given him,
1 Kings 12:14 and he spoke to them according to the advice of the young men, saying, "My father made your yoke heavy, but I will add to your yoke; my father disciplined you with whips, but I will discipline you with scorpions."
1 Kings 12:15 So the king did not listen to the people; for it was a turn of events from the Lord, that He might establish His word, which the Lord spoke through Ahijah the Shilonite to Jeroboam the son of Nebat.
1 Kings 12:16 When all Israel saw that the king did not listen to them, the people answered the king, saying," What portion do we have in David? We have no inheritance in the son of Jesse; To your tents, O Israel! Now look after your own house, David! "So Israel departed to their tents.
1 Kings 12:17 But as for the sons of Israel who lived in the cities of Judah, Rehoboam reigned over them.
1 Kings 12:18 Then King Rehoboam sent Adoram, who was over the forced labor, and all Israel stoned him to death. And King Rehoboam made haste to mount his chariot to flee to Jerusalem.
1 Kings 12:19 So Israel has been in rebellion against the house of David to this day.
1 Kings 12:20 It came about when all Israel heard that Jeroboam had returned, that they sent and called him to the assembly and made him king over all Israel. None but the tribe of Judah followed the house of David.
1 Kings 12:21 Now when Rehoboam had come to Jerusalem, he assembled all the house of Judah and the tribe of Benjamin, 180,000 chosen men who were warriors, to fight against the house of Israel to restore the kingdom to Rehoboam the son of Solomon.
1 Kings 12:22 But the word of God came to Shemaiah the man of God, saying,
1 Kings 12:23 "Speak to Rehoboam the son of Solomon, king of Judah, and to all the house of Judah and Benjamin and to the rest of the people, saying,
1 Kings 12:24 'Thus says the Lord, "You must not go up and fight against your relatives the sons of Israel; return every man to his house, for this thing has come from Me."'" So they listened to the word of the Lord, and returned and went their way according to the word of the Lord.
1 Kings 12:25 Then Jeroboam built Shechem in the hill country of Ephraim, and lived there. And he went out from there and built Penuel.
1 Kings 12:26 Jeroboam said in his heart, "Now the kingdom will return to the house of David.
1 Kings 12:27 If this people go up to offer sacrifices in the house of the Lord at Jerusalem, then the heart of this people will return to their lord, even to Rehoboam king of Judah; and they will kill me and return to Rehoboam king of Judah."
1 Kings 12:28 So the king consulted, and made two golden calves, and he said to them, "It is too much for you to go up to Jerusalem; behold your gods, O Israel, that brought you up from the land of Egypt."
1 Kings 12:29 He set one in Bethel, and the other he put in Dan.
1 Kings 12:30 Now this thing became a sin, for the people went to worship before the one as far as Dan.
1 Kings 12:31 And he made houses on high places, and made priests from among all the people who were not of the sons of Levi.
1 Kings 12:32 Jeroboam instituted a feast in the eighth month on the fifteenth day of the month, like the feast which is in Judah, and he went up to the altar; thus he did in Bethel, sacrificing to the calves which he had made. And he stationed in Bethel the priests of the high places which he had made.
1 Kings 12:33 Then he went up to the altar which he had made in Bethel on the fifteenth day in the eighth month, even in the month which he had devised in his own heart; and he instituted a feast for the sons of Israel and went up to the altar to burn incense.

1 Kings 12:4 Thy father made our yoke grievous: now therefore make thou the grievous service of thy father, and his heavy yoke which he put upon us, lighter, and we will serve thee. 1 Kings 12:4 "Your father made our yoke hard; now therefore lighten the hard service of your father and his heavy yoke which he put on us, and we will serve you." 1 Kings 12:4 ὁ πατήρ σου ἐβάρυνεν τὸν κλοιὸν ἡμῶν καὶ σὺ νῦν κούφισον ἀπὸ τῆς δουλείας τοῦ πατρός σου τῆς σκληρᾶς καὶ ἀπὸ τοῦ κλοιοῦ αὐτοῦ τοῦ βαρέος οὗ ἔδωκεν ἐφ᾽ ἡμᾶς καὶ δουλεύσομέν σοι
1 Kings 12:5 And he said unto them, Depart yet for three days, then come again to me. And the people departed. 1 Kings 12:5 Then he said to them, "Depart for three days, then return to me." So the people departed. 1 Kings 12:5 καὶ εἶπεν πρὸς αὐτούς ἀπέλθετε ἕως ἡμερῶν τριῶν καὶ ἀναστρέψατε πρός με καὶ ἀπῆλθον
1 Kings 12:6 And king Rehoboam consulted with the old men, that stood before Solomon his father while he yet lived, and said, How do ye advise that I may answer this people? 1 Kings 12:6 King Rehoboam consulted with the elders who had served his father Solomon while he was still alive, saying, "How do you counsel me to answer this people?" 1 Kings 12:6 καὶ παρήγγειλεν ὁ βασιλεὺς τοῖς πρεσβυτέροις οἳ ἦσαν παρεστῶτες ἐνώπιον Σαλωμων τοῦ πατρὸς αὐτοῦ ἔτι ζῶντος αὐτοῦ λέγων πῶς ὑμεῖς βουλεύεσθε καὶ ἀποκριθῶ τῷ λαῷ τούτῳ λόγον
1 Kings 12:7 And they spake unto him, saying, If thou wilt be a servant unto this people this day, and wilt serve them, and answer them, and speak good words to them, then they will be thy servants for ever. 1 Kings 12:7 Then they spoke to him, saying, "If you will be a servant to this people today, and will serve them and grant them their petition, and speak good words to them, then they will be your servants forever." 1 Kings 12:7 καὶ ἐλάλησαν πρὸς αὐτὸν λέγοντες εἰ ἐν τῇ ἡμέρᾳ ταύτῃ ἔσῃ δοῦλος τῷ λαῷ τούτῳ καὶ δουλεύσῃς αὐτοῖς καὶ λαλήσῃς αὐτοῖς λόγους ἀγαθούς καὶ ἔσονταί σοι δοῦλοι πάσας τὰς ἡμέρας
1 Kings 12:8 But he forsook the counsel of the old men, which they had given him, and consulted with the young men that were grown up with him, and which stood before him: 1 Kings 12:8 But he forsook the counsel of the elders which they had given him, and consulted with the young men who grew up with him and served him. 1 Kings 12:8 καὶ ἐγκατέλιπεν τὴν βουλὴν τῶν πρεσβυτέρων ἃ συνεβουλεύσαντο αὐτῷ καὶ συνεβουλεύσατο μετὰ τῶν παιδαρίων τῶν ἐκτραφέντων μετ᾽ αὐτοῦ τῶν παρεστηκότων πρὸ προσώπου αὐτοῦ
1 Kings 12:9 And he said unto them, What counsel give ye that we may answer this people, who have spoken to me, saying, Make the yoke which thy father did put upon us lighter? 1 Kings 12:9 So he said to them, "What counsel do you give that we may answer this people who have spoken to me, saying, 'Lighten the yoke which your father put on us'?" 1 Kings 12:9 καὶ εἶπεν αὐτοῖς τί ὑμεῖς συμβουλεύετε καὶ τί ἀποκριθῶ τῷ λαῷ τούτῳ τοῖς λαλήσασιν πρός με λεγόντων κούφισον ἀπὸ τοῦ κλοιοῦ οὗ ἔδωκεν ὁ πατήρ σου ἐφ᾽ ἡμᾶς
1 Kings 12:10 And the young men that were grown up with him spake unto him, saying, Thus shalt thou speak unto this people that spake unto thee, saying, Thy father made our yoke heavy, but make thou it lighter unto us; thus shalt thou say unto them, My little finger shall be thicker than my father's loins. 1 Kings 12:10 The young men who grew up with him spoke to him, saying, "Thus you shall say to this people who spoke to you, saying, 'Your father made our yoke heavy, now you make it lighter for us!' But you shall speak to them, 'My little finger is thicker than my father's loins! 1 Kings 12:10 καὶ ἐλάλησαν πρὸς αὐτὸν τὰ παιδάρια τὰ ἐκτραφέντα μετ᾽ αὐτοῦ οἱ παρεστηκότες πρὸ προσώπου αὐτοῦ λέγοντες τάδε λαλήσεις τῷ λαῷ τούτῳ τοῖς λαλήσασι πρὸς σὲ λέγοντες ὁ πατήρ σου ἐβάρυνεν τὸν κλοιὸν ἡμῶν καὶ σὺ νῦν κούφισον ἀφ᾽ ἡμῶν τάδε λαλήσεις πρὸς αὐτούς ἡ μικρότης μου παχυτέρα τῆς ὀσφύος τοῦ πατρός μου
1 Kings 12:11 And now whereas my father did lade you with a heavy yoke, I will add to your yoke: my father hath chastised you with whips, but I will chastise you with scorpions. 1 Kings 12:11 Whereas my father loaded you with a heavy yoke, I will add to your yoke; my father disciplined you with whips, but I will discipline you with scorpions.'" 1 Kings 12:11 καὶ νῦν ὁ πατήρ μου ἐπεσάσσετο ὑμᾶς κλοιῷ βαρεῖ κἀγὼ προσθήσω ἐπὶ τὸν κλοιὸν ὑμῶν ὁ πατήρ μου ἐπαίδευσεν ὑμᾶς ἐν μάστιγξιν ἐγὼ δὲ παιδεύσω ὑμᾶς ἐν σκορπίοις
1 Kings 12:12 So Jeroboam and all the people came to Rehoboam the third day, as the king had appointed, saying, Come to me again the third day. 1 Kings 12:12 Then Jeroboam and all the people came to Rehoboam on the third day as the king had directed, saying, "Return to me on the third day." 1 Kings 12:12 καὶ παρεγένοντο πᾶς Ισραηλ πρὸς τὸν βασιλέα Ροβοαμ ἐν τῇ ἡμέρᾳ τῇ τρίτῃ καθότι ἐλάλησεν αὐτοῖς ὁ βασιλεὺς λέγων ἀναστράφητε πρός με τῇ ἡμέρᾳ τῇ τρίτῃ
1 Kings 12:13 And the king answered the people roughly, and forsook the old men's counsel that they gave him; 1 Kings 12:13 The king answered the people harshly, for he forsook the advice of the elders which they had given him, 1 Kings 12:13 καὶ ἀπεκρίθη ὁ βασιλεὺς πρὸς τὸν λαὸν σκληρά καὶ ἐγκατέλιπεν Ροβοαμ τὴν βουλὴν τῶν πρεσβυτέρων ἃ συνεβουλεύσαντο αὐτῷ
1 Kings 12:14 And spake to them after the counsel of the young men, saying, My father made your yoke heavy, and I will add to your yoke: my father also chastised you with whips, but I will chastise you with scorpions. 1 Kings 12:14 and he spoke to them according to the advice of the young men, saying, "My father made your yoke heavy, but I will add to your yoke; my father disciplined you with whips, but I will discipline you with scorpions." 1 Kings 12:14 καὶ ἐλάλησεν πρὸς αὐτοὺς κατὰ τὴν βουλὴν τῶν παιδαρίων λέγων ὁ πατήρ μου ἐβάρυνεν τὸν κλοιὸν ὑμῶν κἀγὼ προσθήσω ἐπὶ τὸν κλοιὸν ὑμῶν ὁ πατήρ μου ἐπαίδευσεν ὑμᾶς ἐν μάστιγξιν κἀγὼ παιδεύσω ὑμᾶς ἐν σκορπίοις
1 Kings 12:15 Wherefore the king hearkened not unto the people; for the cause was from the LORD, that he might perform his saying, which the LORD spake by Ahijah the Shilonite unto Jeroboam the son of Nebat. 1 Kings 12:15 So the king did not listen to the people; for it was a turn of events from the Lord, that He might establish His word, which the Lord spoke through Ahijah the Shilonite to Jeroboam the son of Nebat. 1 Kings 12:15 καὶ οὐκ ἤκουσεν ὁ βασιλεὺς τοῦ λαοῦ ὅτι ἦν μεταστροφὴ παρὰ κυρίου ὅπως στήσῃ τὸ ῥῆμα αὐτοῦ ὃ ἐλάλησεν ἐν χειρὶ Αχια τοῦ Σηλωνίτου περὶ Ιεροβοαμ υἱοῦ Ναβατ
1 Kings 12 16 So when all Israel saw that the king hearkened not unto them, the people answered the king, saying, What portion have we in David? neither have we inheritance in the son of Jesse: to your tents, O Israel now see to thine own house, David. So Israel departed unto their tents. 1 Kings 12:16 When all Israel saw that the king did not listen to them, the people answered the king, saying," What portion do we have in David? We have no inheritance in the son of Jesse; To your tents, O Israel! Now look after your own house, David! "So Israel departed to their tents. 1 Kings 12:16 καὶ εἶδον πᾶς Ισραηλ ὅτι οὐκ ἤκουσεν ὁ βασιλεὺς αὐτῶν καὶ ἀπεκρίθη ὁ λαὸς τῷ βασιλεῖ λέγων τίς ἡμῖν μερὶς ἐν Δαυιδ καὶ οὐκ ἔστιν ἡμῖν κληρονομία ἐν υἱῷ Ιεσσαι ἀπότρεχε Ισραηλ εἰς τὰ σκηνώματά σου νῦν βόσκε τὸν οἶκόν σου Δαυιδ καὶ ἀπῆλθεν Ισραηλ εἰς τὰ σκηνώματα αὐτοῦ

1 Kings 12:20 And it came to pass, when all Israel heard that Jeroboam was come again, that they sent and called him unto the congregation, and made him king over all Israel: there was none that followed the house of David, but the tribe of Judah only. 1 Kings 12:20 It came about when all Israel heard that Jeroboam had returned, that they sent and called him to the assembly and made him king over all Israel. None but the tribe of Judah followed the house of David. 1 Kings 12:20 καὶ ἐγένετο ὡς ἤκουσεν πᾶς Ισραηλ ὅτι ἀνέκαμψεν Ιεροβοαμ ἐξ Αἰγύπτου καὶ ἀπέστειλαν καὶ ἐκάλεσαν αὐτὸν εἰς τὴν συναγωγὴν καὶ ἐβασίλευσαν αὐτὸν ἐπὶ Ισραηλ καὶ οὐκ ἦν ὀπίσω οἴκου Δαυιδ πάρεξ σκήπτρου Ιουδα καὶ Βενιαμιν μόνοι

1 Kings 12:22 But the word of God came unto Shemaiah the man of God, saying, 1 Kings 12:22 But the word of God came to Shemaiah the man of God, saying, 1 Kings 12:22 καὶ ἐγένετο λόγος κυρίου πρὸς Σαμαιαν ἄνθρωπον τοῦ θεοῦ λέγων
1 Kings 12:23 Speak unto Rehoboam, the son of Solomon, king of Judah, and unto all the house of Judah and Benjamin, and to the remnant of the people, saying, 1 Kings 12:23 "Speak to Rehoboam the son of Solomon, king of Judah, and to all the house of Judah and Benjamin and to the rest of the people, saying, 1 Kings 12:23 εἰπὸν τῷ Ροβοαμ υἱῷ Σαλωμων βασιλεῖ Ιουδα καὶ πρὸς πάντα οἶκον Ιουδα καὶ Βενιαμιν καὶ τῷ καταλοίπῳ τοῦ λαοῦ λέγων
1 Kings 12:24 Thus saith the LORD, Ye shall not go up, nor fight against your brethren the children of Israel: return every man to his house; for this thing is from me. They hearkened therefore to the word of the LORD, and returned to depart, according to the word of the LORD. 1 Kings 12:24 'Thus says the Lord, "You must not go up and fight against your relatives the sons of Israel; return every man to his house, for this thing has come from Me."'" So they listened to the word of the Lord, and returned and went their way according to the word of the Lord. 1 Kings 12:24 τάδε λέγει κύριος οὐκ ἀναβήσεσθε οὐδὲ πολεμήσετε μετὰ τῶν ἀδελφῶν ὑμῶν υἱῶν Ισραηλ ἀναστρεφέτω ἕκαστος εἰς τὸν οἶκον ἑαυτοῦ ὅτι παρ᾽ ἐμοῦ γέγονεν τὸ ῥῆμα τοῦτο καὶ ἤκουσαν τοῦ λόγου κυρίου καὶ κατέπαυσαν τοῦ πορευθῆναι κατὰ τὸ ῥῆμα κυρίου ~ καὶ ὁ βασιλεὺς Σαλωμων κοιμᾶται μετὰ τῶν πατέρων αὐτοῦ καὶ θάπτεται μετὰ τῶν πατέρων αὐτοῦ ἐν πόλει Δαυιδ καὶ ἐβασίλευσεν Ροβοαμ υἱὸς αὐτοῦ ἀντ᾽ αὐτοῦ ἐν Ιερουσαλημ υἱὸς ὢν ἑκκαίδεκα ἐτῶν ἐν τῷ βασιλεύειν αὐτὸν καὶ δώδεκα ἔτη

βασιλείαν ~ καὶ ἐζήτει Σαλωμων θανατῶσαι αὐτόν καὶ ἐφοβήθη καὶ ἀπέδρα αὐτὸς πρὸς Σουσακιμ βασιλέα Αἰγύπτου καὶ ἦν μετ᾽ αὐτοῦ ἕως ἀπέθανεν Σαλωμων ~ καὶ ἤκουσεν Ιεροβοαμ ἐν Αἰγύπτῳ ὅτι τέθνηκεν Σαλωμων

Σουσακιμ ὄντως ἐξαπόστειλόν με καὶ ἀπελεύσομαι καὶ ἐξῆλθεν Ιεροβοαμ ἐξ Αἰγύπτου καὶ ἦλθεν εἰς γῆν Σαριρα τὴν ἐν ὄρει Εφραιμ καὶ συνάγεται ἐκεῖ πᾶν σκῆπτρον Εφραιμ καὶ ᾠκοδόμησεν Ιεροβοαμ ἐκεῖ χάρακα ~ καὶ ἠρρώστησε τὸ παιδάριον αὐτοῦ ἀρρωστίαν κραταιὰν σφόδρα καὶ ἐπορεύθη Ιεροβοαμ ἐπερωτῆσαι ὑπὲρ τοῦ παιδαρίου καὶ εἶπε πρὸς Ανω τὴν γυναῖκα αὐτοῦ ἀνάστηθι καὶ πορεύου ἐπερώτησον τὸν θεὸν ὑπὲρ τοῦ παιδαρίου εἰ ζήσεται ἐκ τῆς ἀρρωστίας αὐτοῦ ~ καὶ ἄνθρωπος ἦν ἐν Σηλω καὶ ὄνομα αὐτῷ Αχια καὶ οὗτος ἦν υἱὸς ἑξήκοντα ἐτῶν καὶ ῥῆμα κυρίου μετ᾽ αὐτοῦ καὶ εἶπεν Ιεροβοαμ πρὸς τὴν γυναῖκα αὐτοῦ ἀνάστηθι καὶ λαβὲ εἰς τὴν χεῖρά σου τῷ ἀνθρώπῳ τοῦ θεοῦ ἄρτους καὶ κολλύρια τοῖς τέκνοις αὐτοῦ καὶ σταφυλὴν καὶ στάμνον μέλιτος ~ καὶ ἀνέστη ἡ γυνὴ καὶ ἔλαβεν εἰς τὴν χεῖρα αὐτῆς ἄρτους καὶ δύο κολλύρια καὶ σταφυλὴν καὶ στάμνον μέλιτος τῷ Αχια καὶ ὁ ἄνθρωπος πρεσβύτερος καὶ οἱ ὀφθαλμοὶ αὐτοῦ ἠμβλυώπουν τοῦ βλέπειν ~ καὶ ἀνέστη ἐκ Σαριρα καὶ πορεύεται καὶ ἐγένετο εἰσελθούσης αὐτῆς εἰς τὴν πόλιν πρὸς Αχια τὸν Σηλωνίτην καὶ εἶπεν Αχια τῷ παιδαρίῳ αὐτοῦ ἔξελθε δὴ εἰς ἀπαντὴν Ανω τῇ γυναικὶ Ιεροβοαμ καὶ ἐρεῖς αὐτῇ εἴσελθε καὶ μὴ στῇς ὅτι τάδε λέγει κύριος σκληρὰ ἐγὼ ἐπαποστελῶ ἐπὶ σέ ~ καὶ εἰσῆλθεν Ανω πρὸς τὸν ἄνθρωπον τοῦ θεοῦ καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῇ Αχια ἵνα τί μοι ἐνήνοχας ἄρτους καὶ σταφυλὴν καὶ κολλύρια καὶ στάμνον μέλιτος τάδε λέγει κύριος ἰδοὺ σὺ ἀπελεύσῃ ἀπ᾽ ἐμοῦ καὶ ἔσται εἰσελθούσης σου τὴν πύλην εἰς Σαριρα καὶ τὰ κοράσιά σου ἐξελεύσονταί σοι εἰς συνάντησιν καὶ ἐροῦσίν σοι τὸ παιδάριον τέθνηκεν ~ ὅτι τάδε λέγει κύριος ἰδοὺ ἐγὼ ἐξολεθρεύσω τοῦ Ιεροβοαμ οὐροῦντα πρὸς τοῖχον καὶ ἔσονται οἱ τεθνηκότες τοῦ Ιεροβοαμ ἐν τῇ πόλει καταφάγονται οἱ κύνες καὶ τὸν τεθνηκότα ἐν τῷ ἀγρῷ καταφάγεται τὰ πετεινὰ τοῦ οὐρανοῦ καὶ τὸ παιδάριον κόψονται οὐαὶ κύριε ὅτι εὑρέθη ἐν αὐτῷ ῥῆμα καλὸν περὶ τοῦ κυρίου ~ καὶ ἀπῆλθεν ἡ γυνή ὡς ἤκουσεν καὶ ἐγένετο ὡς εἰσῆλθεν εἰς τὴν Σαριρα καὶ τὸ παιδάριον ἀπέθανεν καὶ ἐξῆλθεν ἡ κραυγὴ εἰς ἀπαντήν ~ καὶ ἐπορεύθη Ιεροβοαμ εἰς Σικιμα τὴν ἐν ὄρει Εφραιμ καὶ συνήθροισεν ἐκεῖ τὰς φυλὰς τοῦ Ισραηλ καὶ ἀνέβη ἐκεῖ Ροβοαμ υἱὸς Σαλωμων καὶ λόγος κυρίου ἐγένετο πρὸς Σαμαιαν τὸν Ελαμι λέγων λαβὲ σεαυτῷ ἱμάτιον καινὸν τὸ οὐκ εἰσεληλυθὸς εἰς ὕδωρ καὶ ῥῆξον αὐτὸ δώδεκα ῥήγματα καὶ δώσεις τῷ Ιεροβοαμ καὶ ἐρεῖς αὐτῷ τάδε λέγει κύριος λαβὲ σεαυτῷ δέκα ῥήγματα τοῦ περιβαλέσθαι σε καὶ ἔλαβεν Ιεροβοαμ καὶ εἶπεν Σαμαιας τάδε λέγει κύριος ἐπὶ τὰς δέκα φυλὰς τοῦ Ισραηλ ~ καὶ εἶπεν ὁ λαὸς πρὸς Ροβοαμ υἱὸν Σαλωμων ὁ πατήρ σου ἐβάρυνεν τὸν κλοιὸν αὐτοῦ ἐφ᾽ ἡμᾶς καὶ ἐβάρυνεν τὰ βρώματα τῆς τραπέζης αὐτοῦ καὶ νῦν εἰ κουφιεῖς σὺ ἐφ᾽ ἡμᾶς καὶ δουλεύσομέν σοι καὶ εἶπεν Ροβοαμ πρὸς τὸν λαόν ἔτι τριῶν ἡμερῶν καὶ ἀποκριθήσομαι ὑμῖν ῥῆμα ~ καὶ εἶπεν Ροβοαμ εἰσαγάγετέ μοι τοὺς πρεσβυτέρους καὶ συμβουλεύσομαι μετ᾽ αὐτῶν τί ἀποκριθῶ τῷ λαῷ ῥῆμα ἐν τῇ ἡμέρᾳ τῇ τρίτῃ καὶ ἐλάλησεν Ροβοαμ εἰς τὰ ὦτα αὐτῶν καθὼς ἀπέστειλεν ὁ λαὸς πρὸς αὐτόν καὶ εἶπον οἱ πρεσβύτεροι τοῦ λαοῦ οὕτως ἐλάλησεν πρὸς σὲ ὁ λαός ~ καὶ διεσκέδασεν Ροβοαμ τὴν βουλὴν αὐτῶν καὶ οὐκ ἤρεσεν ἐνώπιον αὐτοῦ καὶ ἀπέστειλεν καὶ εἰσήγαγεν τοὺς συντρόφους αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐλάλησεν αὐτοῖς τὰ αὐτά καὶ ταῦτα ἀπέστειλεν πρός με λέγων ὁ λαός καὶ εἶπαν οἱ σύντροφοι αὐτοῦ οὕτως λαλήσεις πρὸς τὸν λαὸν λέγων ἡ μικρότης μου παχυτέρα ὑπὲρ τὴν ὀσφὺν τοῦ πατρός μου ὁ πατήρ μου ἐμαστίγου ὑμᾶς μάστιγξιν ἐγὼ δὲ κατάρξω ὑμῶν ἐν σκορπίοις ~ καὶ ἤρεσεν τὸ ῥῆμα ἐνώπιον Ροβοαμ καὶ ἀπεκρίθη τῷ λαῷ καθὼς συνεβούλευσαν αὐτῷ οἱ σύντροφοι αὐτοῦ τὰ παιδάρια ~ καὶ εἶπεν πᾶς ὁ λαὸς ὡς ἀνὴρ εἷς ἕκαστος τῷ πλησίον αὐτοῦ καὶ ἀνέκραξαν ἅπαντες λέγοντες οὐ μερὶς ἡμῖν ἐν Δαυιδ οὐδὲ κληρονομία ἐν υἱῷ Ιεσσαι εἰς τὰ σκηνώματά σου Ισραηλ ὅτι οὗτος ὁ ἄνθρωπος οὐκ εἰς ἄρχοντα οὐδὲ εἰς ἡγούμενον ~ καὶ διεσπάρη πᾶς ὁ λαὸς ἐκ Σικιμων καὶ ἀπῆλθεν ἕκαστος εἰς τὸ σκήνωμα αὐτοῦ καὶ κατεκράτησεν Ροβοαμ καὶ ἀπῆλθεν καὶ ἀνέβη ἐπὶ τὸ ἅρμα αὐτοῦ καὶ εἰσῆλθεν εἰς Ιερουσαλημ καὶ πορεύονται ὀπίσω αὐτοῦ πᾶν σκῆπτρον Ιουδα καὶ πᾶν σκῆπτρον Βενιαμιν ~ καὶ ἐγένετο ἐνισταμένου τοῦ ἐνιαυτοῦ καὶ συνήθροισεν Ροβοαμ πάντα ἄνδρα Ιουδα καὶ Βενιαμιν καὶ ἀνέβη τοῦ πολεμεῖν πρὸς Ιεροβοαμ εἰς Σικιμα ~ καὶ ἐγένετο ῥῆμα κυρίου πρὸς Σαμαιαν ἄνθρωπον τοῦ θεοῦ λέγων εἰπὸν τῷ Ροβοαμ βασιλεῖ Ιουδα καὶ πρὸς πάντα οἶκον Ιουδα καὶ Βενιαμιν καὶ πρὸς τὸ κατάλειμμα τοῦ λαοῦ λέγων τάδε λέγει κύριος οὐκ ἀναβήσεσθε οὐδὲ πολεμήσετε πρὸς τοὺς ἀδελφοὺς ὑμῶν υἱοὺς Ισραηλ ἀναστρέφετε ἕκαστος εἰς τὸν οἶκον αὐτοῦ ὅτι παρ᾽ ἐμοῦ γέγονεν τὸ ῥῆμα τοῦτο ~ καὶ ἤκουσαν τοῦ λόγου κυρίου καὶ ἀνέσχον τοῦ πορευθῆναι κατὰ τὸ ῥῆμα κυρίου
1 Kings 12:25 Then Jeroboam built Shechem in mount Ephraim, and dwelt therein; and went out from thence, and built Penuel. 1 Kings 12:25 Then Jeroboam built Shechem in the hill country of Ephraim, and lived there.

1 Kings 12:28 Whereupon the king took counsel, and made two calves of gold, and said unto them, It is too much for you to go up to Jerusalem: behold thy gods, O Israel, which brought thee up out of the land of Egypt. 1 Kings 12:28 So the king consulted, and made two golden calves, and he said to them, "It is too much for you to go up to Jerusalem; behold your gods, O Israel, that brought you up from the land of Egypt." 1 Kings 12:28 καὶ ἐβουλεύσατο ὁ βασιλεὺς καὶ ἐπορεύθη καὶ ἐποίησεν δύο δαμάλεις χρυσᾶς καὶ εἶπεν πρὸς τὸν λαόν ἱκανούσθω ὑμῖν ἀναβαίνειν εἰς Ιερουσαλημ ἰδοὺ θεοί σου Ισραηλ οἱ ἀναγαγόντες σε ἐκ γῆς Αἰγύπτου
1 Kings 12:29 And he set the one in Bethel, and the other put he in Dan. 1 Kings 12:29 He set one in Bethel, and the other he put in Dan. 1 Kings 12:29 καὶ ἔθετο τὴν μίαν ἐν Βαιθηλ καὶ τὴν μίαν ἔδωκεν ἐν Δαν
1 Kings 12:30 And this thing became a sin: for the people went to worship before the one, even unto Dan. 1 Kings 12:30 Now this thing became a sin, for the people went to worship before the one as far as Dan. 1 Kings 12:30 καὶ ἐγένετο ὁ λόγος οὗτος εἰς ἁμαρτίαν καὶ ἐπορεύετο ὁ λαὸς πρὸ προσώπου τῆς μιᾶς ἕως Δαν

1 Kings 12:32 And Jeroboam ordained a feast in the eighth month, on the fifteenth day of the month, like unto the feast that is in Judah, and he offered upon the altar. So did he in Bethel, sacrificing unto the calves that he had made: and he placed in Bethel the priests of the high places which he had made. 1 Kings 12:32 Jeroboam instituted a feast in the eighth month on the fifteenth day of the month, like the feast which is in Judah, and he went up to the altar; thus he did in Bethel, sacrificing to the calves which he had made. And he stationed in Bethel the priests of the high places which he had made. 1 Kings 12:32 καὶ ἐποίησεν Ιεροβοαμ ἑορτὴν ἐν τῷ μηνὶ τῷ ὀγδόῳ ἐν τῇ πεντεκαιδεκάτῃ ἡμέρᾳ τοῦ μηνὸς κατὰ τὴν ἑορτὴν τὴν ἐν γῇ Ιουδα καὶ ἀνέβη ἐπὶ τὸ θυσιαστήριον ὃ ἐποίησεν ἐν Βαιθηλ τοῦ θύειν ταῖς δαμάλεσιν αἷς ἐποίησεν καὶ παρέστησεν ἐν Βαιθηλ τοὺς ἱερεῖς τῶν ὑψηλῶν ὧν ἐποίησεν
1 Kings 12:33 So he offered upon the altar which he had made in Bethel the fifteenth day of the eighth month, even in the month which he had devised of his own heart; and ordained a feast unto the children of Israel: and he offered upon the altar, and burnt incense. 1 Kings 12:33 Then he went up to the altar which he had made in Bethel on the fifteenth day in the eighth month, even in the month which he had devised in his own heart; and he instituted a feast for the sons of Israel and went up to the altar to burn incense. 1 Kings 12:33 καὶ ἀνέβη ἐπὶ τὸ θυσιαστήριον ὃ ἐποίησεν τῇ πεντεκαιδεκάτῃ ἡμέρᾳ ἐν τῷ μηνὶ τῷ ὀγδόῳ ἐν τῇ ἑορτῇ ᾗ ἐπλάσατο ἀπὸ καρδίας αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐποίησεν ἑορτὴν τοῖς υἱοῖς Ισραηλ καὶ ἀνέβη ἐπὶ τὸ θυσιαστήριον τοῦ ἐπιθῦσαι
