1 Kings 12

KJV King James Version 1769

The Israelites, assembled at Shechem to crown Rehoboam, by Jeroboam make a suit of relaxation unto him. Rehoboam, refusing the old men's counsel, by the advice of young men, answereth them roughly. Ten tribes revolting, kill Adoram, and make Rehoboam to flee. Rehoboam, raising an army, is forbidden by Shemaiah. Jeroboam strengtheneth himself by cities, and by the idolatry of the two calves.
