    12:1 And Rehoboam 7346 went 3212 8799 to Shechem 7927: for all Israel 3478 were come 935 8804 to Shechem 7927 to make him king 4427 8687.

    12:2 And it came to pass, when Jeroboam 3379 the son 1121 of Nebat 5028, who was yet in Egypt 4714, heard 8085 8800 [of it], (for he was fled 1272 8804 from the presence 6440 of king 4428 Solomon 8010, and Jeroboam 3379 dwelt 3427 8799 in Egypt 4714;)

    12:3 That they sent 7971 8799 and called 7121 8799 him. And Jeroboam 3379 and all the congregation 6951 of Israel 3478 came 935 8799, and spake 1696 8762 unto Rehoboam 7346, saying 559 8800,

    12:4 Thy father 1 made 7185 0 our yoke 5923 grievous 7185 8689: now therefore make thou the grievous 7186 service 5656 of thy father 1, and his heavy 3515 yoke 5923 which he put 5414 8804 upon us, lighter 7043 8685, and we will serve 5647 8799 thee.

    12:5 And he said 559 8799 unto them, Depart 3212 8798 yet [for] three 7969 days 3117, then come again 7725 8798 to me. And the people 5971 departed 3212 8799.

    12:6 And king 4428 Rehoboam 7346 consulted 3289 8735 with the old men 2205, that stood 5975 8802 before 6440 Solomon 8010 his father 1 while he yet lived 2416, and said 559 8800, How do ye advise 3289 8737 that I may 7725 8687 answer 1697 this people 5971?

    12:7 And they spake 1696 8762 unto him, saying 559 8800, If thou wilt be a servant 5650 unto this people 5971 this day 3117, and wilt serve 5647 8804 them, and answer 6030 8804 them, and speak 1696 8765 good 2896 words 1697 to them, then they will be thy servants 5650 for ever 3117.

    12:8 But he forsook 5800 8799 the counsel 6098 of the old men 2205, which they had given 3289 8804 him, and consulted 3289 8735 with the young men 3206 that were grown up 1431 8804 with him, [and] which stood 5975 8802 before 6440 him:

    12:9 And he said 559 8799 unto them, What counsel give 3289 8737 ye that we may 7725 8686 answer 1697 this people 5971, who have spoken 1696 8765 to me, saying 559 8800, Make 7043 0 the yoke 5923 which thy father 1 did put 5414 8804 upon us lighter 7043 8685?

    12:10 And the young men 3206 that were grown up 1431 8804 with him spake 1696 8762 unto him, saying 559 8800, Thus shalt thou speak 559 8799 unto this people 5971 that spake 1696 8765 unto thee, saying 559 8800, Thy father 1 made 3513 0 our yoke 5923 heavy 3513 8689, but make thou [it] lighter 7043 8685 unto us; thus shalt thou say 1696 8762 unto them, My little 6995 [finger] shall be thicker 5666 8804 than my father's 1 loins 4975.

    12:11 And now whereas my father 1 did lade 6006 8689 you with a heavy 3515 yoke 5923, I will add 3254 8686 to your yoke 5923: my father 1 hath chastised 3256 8765 you with whips 7752, but I will chastise 3256 8762 you with scorpions 6137.

    12:12 So Jeroboam 3379 and all the people 5971 came 935 8799 to Rehoboam 7346 the third 7992 day 3117, as the king 4428 had appointed 1696 8765, saying 559 8800, Come to me again 7725 8798 the third 7992 day 3117.

    12:13 And the king 4428 answered 6030 8799 the people 5971 roughly 7186, and forsook 5800 8799 the old men's 2205 counsel 6098 that they gave 3289 8804 him;(roughly: Heb. hardly)

    12:14 And spake 1696 8762 to them after the counsel 6098 of the young men 3206, saying 559 8800, My father 1 made 3513 0 your yoke 5923 heavy 3513 8689, and I will add 3254 8686 to your yoke 5923: my father 1 [also] chastised 3256 8765 you with whips 7752, but I will chastise 3256 8762 you with scorpions 6137.

    12:15 Wherefore the king 4428 hearkened 8085 8804 not unto the people 5971; for the cause 5438 was from the LORD 3068, that he might perform 6965 8687 his saying 1697, which the LORD 3068 spake 1696 8765 by 3027 Ahijah 281 the Shilonite 7888 unto Jeroboam 3379 the son 1121 of Nebat 5028.

    12:16 So 7725 8686 when all Israel 3478 saw 7200 8799 that the king 4428 hearkened 8085 8804 not unto them, the people 5971 answered 1697 the king 4428, saying 559 8800, What portion 2506 have we in David 1732? neither [have we] inheritance 5159 in the son 1121 of Jesse 3448: to your tents 168, O Israel 3478: now see 7200 8798 to thine own house 1004, David 1732. So Israel 3478 departed 3212 8799 unto their tents 168.

    12:17 But [as for] the children 1121 of Israel 3478 which dwelt 3427 8802 in the cities 5892 of Judah 3063, Rehoboam 7346 reigned 4427 8799 over them.

    12:18 Then king 4428 Rehoboam 7346 sent 7971 8799 Adoram 151, who [was] over the tribute 4522; and all Israel 3478 stoned 7275 8799 him with stones 68, that he died 4191 8799. Therefore king 4428 Rehoboam 7346 made speed 553 8694 to get him up 5927 8800 to his chariot 4818, to flee 5127 8800 to Jerusalem 3389.(made…: Heb. strengthened himself)

    12:19 So Israel 3478 rebelled 6586 8799 against the house 1004 of David 1732 unto this day 3117.(rebelled: or, fell away)

    12:20 And it came to pass, when all Israel 3478 heard 8085 8800 that Jeroboam 3379 was come again 7725 8804, that they sent 7971 8799 and called 7121 8799 him unto the congregation 5712, and made him king 4427 8686 over all Israel 3478: there was none that followed 310 the house 1004 of David 1732, but 2108 the tribe 7626 of Judah 3063 only.

    12:21 And when Rehoboam 7346 was come 935 8799 to Jerusalem 3389, he assembled 6950 8686 all the house 1004 of Judah 3063, with the tribe 7626 of Benjamin 1144, an hundred 3967 and fourscore 8084 thousand 505 chosen men 977 8803, which were warriors 6213 8802 4421, to fight 3898 8736 against the house 1004 of Israel 3478, to bring 7725 0 the kingdom 4410 again 7725 8687 to Rehoboam 7346 the son 1121 of Solomon 8010.

    12:22 But the word 1697 of God 430 came unto Shemaiah 8098 the man 376 of God 430, saying 559 8800,

    12:23 Speak 559 8798 unto Rehoboam 7346, the son 1121 of Solomon 8010, king 4428 of Judah 3063, and unto all the house 1004 of Judah 3063 and Benjamin 1144, and to the remnant 3499 of the people 5971, saying 559 8800,

    12:24 Thus saith 559 8804 the LORD 3068, Ye shall not go up 5927 8799, nor fight 3898 8735 against your brethren 251 the children 1121 of Israel 3478: return 7725 8798 every man 376 to his house 1004; for this thing 1697 is 1961 8738 from me. They hearkened 8085 8799 therefore to the word 1697 of the LORD 3068, and returned 7725 8799 to depart 3212 8800, according to the word 1697 of the LORD 3068.

    12:25 Then Jeroboam 3379 built 1129 8799 Shechem 7927 in mount 2022 Ephraim 669, and dwelt 3427 8799 therein; and went out 3318 8799 from thence, and built 1129 8799 Penuel 6439.

    12:26 And Jeroboam 3379 said 559 8799 in his heart 3820, Now shall the kingdom 4467 return 7725 8799 to the house 1004 of David 1732:

    12:27 If this people 5971 go up 5927 8799 to do 6213 8800 sacrifice 2077 in the house 1004 of the LORD 3068 at Jerusalem 3389, then shall the heart 3820 of this people 5971 turn again 7725 8804 unto their lord 113, [even] unto Rehoboam 7346 king 4428 of Judah 3063, and they shall kill 2026 8804 me, and go again 7725 8804 to Rehoboam 7346 king 4428 of Judah 3063.

    12:28 Whereupon the king 4428 took counsel 3289 8735, and made 6213 8799 two 8147 calves 5695 [of] gold 2091, and said 559 8799 unto them, It is too much 7227 for you to go up 5927 8800 to Jerusalem 3389: behold thy gods 430, O Israel 3478, which brought thee up 5927 8689 out of the land 776 of Egypt 4714.

    12:29 And he set 7760 8799 the one 259 in Bethel 1008, and the other 259 put 5414 8804 he in Dan 1835.

    12:30 And this thing 1697 became a sin 2403: for the people 5971 went 3212 8799 [to worship] before 6440 the one 259, [even] unto Dan 1835.

    12:31 And he made 6213 8799 an house 1004 of high places 1116, and made 6213 8799 priests 3548 of the lowest 7098 of the people 5971, which were not of the sons 1121 of Levi 3878.

    12:32 And Jeroboam 3379 ordained 6213 8799 a feast 2282 in the eighth 8066 month 2320, on the fifteenth 2568 6240 day 3117 of the month 2320, like unto the feast 2282 that [is] in Judah 3063, and he offered 5927 8686 upon the altar 4196. So did 6213 8804 he in Bethel 1008, sacrificing 2076 8763 unto the calves 5695 that he had made 6213 8804: and he placed 5975 8689 in Bethel 1008 the priests 3548 of the high places 1116 which he had made 6213 8804.(offered…: or, went up to the altar, etc)(sacrificing: or, to sacrifice)

    12:33 So he offered 5927 8686 upon the altar 4196 which he had made 6213 8804 in Bethel 1008 the fifteenth 2568 6240 day 3117 of the eighth 8066 month 2320, [even] in the month 2320 which he had devised 908 8804 of his own heart 3820; and ordained 6213 8799 a feast 2282 unto the children 1121 of Israel 3478: and he offered 5927 8686 upon the altar 4196, and burnt incense 6999 8687.(offered…: or, went up to the altar, etc)(and burnt…: Heb. to burn incense)
