1 Kings 12


1  And Rehoboam7346 went1980 to Shechem:7927 for3588 all3605 Israel3478 were come935 to Shechem7927 to make him king.4427 853

2  And it came to pass,1961 when Jeroboam3379 the son1121 of Nebat,5028 who1931 was yet5750 in Egypt,4714 heard8085 of it, (for834 he was fled1272 from the presence4480 6440 of king4428 Solomon,8010 and Jeroboam3379 dwelt3427 in Egypt;)4714

3  That they sent7971 and called7121 him. And Jeroboam3379 and all3605 the congregation6951 of Israel3478 came,935 and spoke1696 unto413 Rehoboam,7346 saying,559

4  Thy father1 made 853 our yoke5923 grievous:7185 now6258 therefore make thou859 the grievous7186 service4480 5656 of thy father,1 and his heavy3515 yoke4480 5923 which834 he put5414 upon5921 us, lighter,7043 and we will serve5647 thee.

5  And he said559 unto413 them, Depart1980 yet5750 for three7969 days,3117 then come again7725 to413 me. And the people5971 departed.1980

6  And king4428 Rehoboam7346 consulted3289 with854 the old men,2205 that834 stood5975 853 before6440 Solomon8010 his father1 while1961 he yet lived,2416 and said,559 How349 do ye859 advise3289 that I may answer7725 1697 853 this2088 people?5971

7  And they spoke1696 unto413 him, saying,559 If518 thou wilt be1961 a servant5650 unto this2088 people5971 this day,3117 and wilt serve5647 them, and answer6030 them, and speak1696 good2896 words1697 to413 them, then they will be1961 thy servants5650 forever.3605 3117

8  But he forsook5800 853 the counsel6098 of the old men,2205 which834 they had given3289 him, and consulted3289 with854 the young men3206 that834 were grown up1431 with854 him, and which834 stood5975 before6440 him:

9  And he said559 unto413 them, What4100 counsel3289 give ye859 that we may answer7725 1697 853 this2088 people,5971 who834 have spoken1696 to413 me, saying,559 Make the yoke5923 which834 thy father1 did put5414 upon5921 us lighter?7043

10  And the young men3206 that834 were grown up1431 with854 him spoke1696 unto413 him, saying,559 Thus3541 shalt thou speak559 unto this2088 people5971 that834 spoke1696 unto413 thee, saying,559 Thy father1 made 853 our yoke5923 heavy,3513 but make thou859 it lighter7043 unto4480 5921 us; thus3541 shalt thou say1696 unto413 them, My little6995 finger shall be thicker5666 than my father's1 loins.4480 4975

11  And now6258 whereas my father1 did lade6006 5921 you with a heavy3515 yoke,5923 I589 will add3254 to5921 your yoke:5923 my father1 hath chastised3256 you with whips,7752 but I589 will chastise3256 you with scorpions.6137

12  So Jeroboam3379 and all3605 the people5971 came935 to413 Rehoboam7346 the third7992 day,3117 as834 the king4428 had appointed,1696 saying,559 Come7725 to413 me again the third7992 day.3117

13  And the king4428 answered6030 853 the people5971 roughly,7186 and forsook5800 853 the old men's2205 counsel6098 that834 they gave3289 him;

14  And spoke1696 to413 them after the counsel6098 of the young men,3206 saying,559 My father1 made 853 your yoke5923 heavy,3513 and I589 will add3254 to5921 your yoke:5923 my father1 also chastised3256 you with whips,7752 but I589 will chastise3256 you with scorpions.6137

15  Wherefore the king4428 hearkened8085 not3808 unto413 the people;5971 for3588 the cause5438 was1961 from4480 5973 the LORD,3068 that4616 he might perform6965 853 his saying,1697 which834 the LORD3068 spoke1696 by3027 Ahijah281 the Shilonite7888 unto413 Jeroboam3379 the son1121 of Nebat.5028

16  So when all3605 Israel3478 saw7200 that3588 the king4428 hearkened8085 not3808 unto413 them, the people5971 answered7725 1697 853 the king,4428 saying,559 What4100 portion2506 have we in David?1732 neither3808 have we inheritance5159 in the son1121 of Jesse:3448 to your tents,168 O Israel:3478 now6258 see7200 to thine own house,1004 David.1732 So Israel3478 departed1980 unto their tents.168

17  But as for the children1121 of Israel3478 which dwelt3427 in the cities5892 of Judah,3063 Rehoboam7346 reigned4427 over5921 them.

18  Then king4428 Rehoboam7346 sent7971 853 Adoram,151 who834 was over5921 the tribute;4522 and all3605 Israel3478 stoned7275 him with stones,68 that he died.4191 Therefore king4428 Rehoboam7346 made speed553 to get him up5927 to his chariot,4818 to flee5127 to Jerusalem.3389

19  So Israel3478 rebelled6586 against the house1004 of David1732 unto5704 this2088 day.3117

20  And it came to pass,1961 when all3605 Israel3478 heard8085 that3588 Jeroboam3379 was come again,7725 that they sent7971 and called7121 him unto413 the congregation,5712 and made him king4427 853 over5921 all3605 Israel:3478 there was1961 none3808 that followed310 the house1004 of David,1732 but2108 the tribe7626 of Judah3063 only.905

21  And when Rehoboam7346 was come935 to Jerusalem,3389 he assembled6950 853 all3605 the house1004 of Judah,3063 with854 the tribe7626 of Benjamin,1144 a hundred3967 and fourscore8084 thousand505 chosen977 men, which were warriors,6213 4421 to fight3898 against5973 the house1004 of Israel,3478 to bring7725 853 the kingdom4410 again to Rehoboam7346 the son1121 of Solomon.8010

22  But the word1697 of God430 came1961 unto413 Shemaiah8098 the man376 of God,430 saying,559

23  Speak559 unto413 Rehoboam,7346 the son1121 of Solomon,8010 king4428 of Judah,3063 and unto413 all3605 the house1004 of Judah3063 and Benjamin,1144 and to the remnant3499 of the people,5971 saying,559

24  Thus3541 saith559 the LORD,3068 Ye shall not3808 go up,5927 nor3808 fight3898 against5973 your brethren251 the children1121 of Israel:3478 return7725 every man376 to his house;1004 for3588 this2088 thing1697 is1961 from4480 854 me. They hearkened8085 therefore 853 to the word1697 of the LORD,3068 and returned7725 to depart,1980 according to the word1697 of the LORD.3068

25  Then Jeroboam3379 built1129 853 Shechem7927 in mount2022 Ephraim,669 and dwelt3427 therein; and went out3318 from thence,4480 8033 and built1129 853 Penuel.6439

26  And Jeroboam3379 said559 in his heart,3820 Now6258 shall the kingdom4467 return7725 to the house1004 of David:1732

27  If518 this2088 people5971 go up5927 to do6213 sacrifice2077 in the house1004 of the LORD3068 at Jerusalem,3389 then shall the heart3820 of this2088 people5971 turn again7725 unto413 their lord,113 even unto413 Rehoboam7346 king4428 of Judah,3063 and they shall kill2026 me, and go again7725 to413 Rehoboam7346 king4428 of Judah.3063

28  Whereupon the king4428 took counsel,3289 and made6213 two8147 calves5695 of gold,2091 and said559 unto413 them, It is too much7227 for you to go up4480 5927 to Jerusalem:3389 behold2009 thy gods,430 O Israel,3478 which834 brought5927 thee up out of the land4480 776 of Egypt.4714

29  And he set7760 853 the one259 in Bethel,1008 and the other259 put5414 he in Dan.1835

30  And this2088 thing1697 became1961 a sin:2403 for the people5971 went1980 to worship before6440 the one,259 even unto5704 Dan.1835

31  And he made6213 853 a house1004 of high places,1116 and made6213 priests3548 of the lowest4480 7098 of the people,5971 which834 were1961 not3808 of the sons4480 1121 of Levi.3878

32  And Jeroboam3379 ordained6213 a feast2282 in the eighth8066 month,2320 on the fifteenth2568 6240 day3117 of the month,2320 like unto the feast2282 that834 is in Judah,3063 and he offered5927 upon5921 the altar.4196 So3651 did6213 he in Bethel,1008 sacrificing2076 unto the calves5695 that834 he had made:6213 and he placed5975 in Bethel1008 853 the priests3548 of the high places1116 which834 he had made.6213

33  So he offered5927 upon5921 the altar4196 which834 he had made6213 in Bethel1008 the fifteenth2568 6240 day3117 of the eighth8066 month,2320 even in the month2320 which834 he had devised908 of his own heart;4480 3820 and ordained6213 a feast2282 unto the children1121 of Israel:3478 and he offered5927 upon5921 the altar,4196 and burnt incense.6999


1 καὶ πορεύεται βασιλεὺς Ροβοαμ εἰς Σικιμα ὅτι εἰς Σικιμα ἤρχοντο πᾶς Ισραηλ βασιλεῦσαι αὐτόν

3 καὶ ἐλάλησεν ὁ λαὸς πρὸς τὸν βασιλέα Ροβοαμ λέγοντες

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

5 καὶ εἶπεν πρὸς αὐτούς ἀπέλθετε ἕως ἡμερῶν τριῶν καὶ ἀναστρέψατε πρός με καὶ ἀπῆλθον

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

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

8 καὶ ἐγκατέλιπεν τὴν βουλὴν τῶν πρεσβυτέρων ἃ συνεβουλεύσαντο αὐτῷ καὶ συνεβουλεύσατο μετὰ τῶν παιδαρίων τῶν ἐκτραφέντων μετ᾽ αὐτοῦ τῶν παρεστηκότων πρὸ προσώπου αὐτοῦ

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

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

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

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

13 καὶ ἀπεκρίθη ὁ βασιλεὺς πρὸς τὸν λαὸν σκληρά καὶ ἐγκατέλιπεν Ροβοαμ τὴν βουλὴν τῶν πρεσβυτέρων ἃ συνεβουλεύσαντο αὐτῷ

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

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

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

18 καὶ ἀπέστειλεν ὁ βασιλεὺς τὸν Αδωνιραμ τὸν ἐπὶ τοῦ φόρου καὶ ἐλιθοβόλησαν αὐτὸν πᾶς Ισραηλ ἐν λίθοις καὶ ἀπέθανεν καὶ ὁ βασιλεὺς Ροβοαμ ἔφθασεν ἀναβῆναι τοῦ φυγεῖν εἰς Ιερουσαλημ

19 καὶ ἠθέτησεν Ισραηλ εἰς τὸν οἶκον Δαυιδ ἕως τῆς ἡμέρας ταύτης

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

21 καὶ Ροβοαμ εἰσῆλθεν εἰς Ιερουσαλημ καὶ ἐξεκκλησίασεν τὴν συναγωγὴν Ιουδα καὶ σκῆπτρον Βενιαμιν ἑκατὸν καὶ εἴκοσι χιλιάδες νεανιῶν ποιούντων πόλεμον τοῦ πολεμεῖν πρὸς οἶκον Ισραηλ ἐπιστρέψαι τὴν βασιλείαν Ροβοαμ υἱῷ Σαλωμων

22 καὶ ἐγένετο λόγος κυρίου πρὸς Σαμαιαν ἄνθρωπον τοῦ θεοῦ λέγων

23 εἰπὸν τῷ Ροβοαμ υἱῷ Σαλωμων βασιλεῖ Ιουδα καὶ πρὸς πάντα οἶκον Ιουδα καὶ Βενιαμιν καὶ τῷ καταλοίπῳ τοῦ λαοῦ λέγων

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 ἐβασίλευσεν ἐν Ιερουσαλημ καὶ ὄνομα τῆς μητρὸς αὐτοῦ Νααναν θυγάτηρ Αναν υἱοῦ Ναας βασιλέως υἱῶν Αμμων καὶ ἐποίησεν τὸ πονηρὸν ἐνώπιον κυρίου καὶ οὐκ ἐπορεύθη ἐν ὁδῷ Δαυιδ τοῦ πατρὸς αὐτοῦ
καὶ ἦν ἄνθρωπος ἐξ ὄρους Εφραιμ δοῦλος τῷ Σαλωμων καὶ ὄνομα αὐτῷ Ιεροβοαμ καὶ ὄνομα τῆς μητρὸς αὐτοῦ Σαριρα γυνὴ πόρνη καὶ ἔδωκεν αὐτὸν Σαλωμων εἰς ἄρχοντα σκυτάλης ἐπὶ τὰς ἄρσεις οἴκου Ιωσηφ καὶ ᾠκοδόμησεν τῷ Σαλωμων τὴν Σαριρα τὴν ἐν ὄρει Εφραιμ καὶ ἦσαν αὐτῷ ἅρματα τριακόσια ἵππων οὗτος ᾠκοδόμησεν τὴν ἄκραν ἐν ταῖς ἄρσεσιν οἴκου Εφραιμ οὗτος συνέκλεισεν τὴν πόλιν Δαυιδ καὶ ἦν ἐπαιρόμενος ἐπὶ τὴν 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 καὶ ἐλάλησεν εἰς τὰ ὦτα Σουσακιμ βασιλέως Αἰγύπτου λέγων ἐξαπόστειλόν με καὶ ἀπελεύσομαι ἐγὼ εἰς τὴν γῆν μου καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῷ Σουσακιμ αἴτησαί τι αἴτημα καὶ δώσω σοι
καὶ Σουσακιμ ἔδωκεν τῷ Ιεροβοαμ τὴν Ανω ἀδελφὴν Θεκεμινας τὴν πρεσβυτέραν τῆς γυναικὸς αὐτοῦ αὐτῷ εἰς γυναῖκα αὕτη ἦν μεγάλη ἐν μέσῳ τῶν θυγατέρων τοῦ βασιλέως καὶ ἔτεκεν τῷ Ιεροβοαμ τὸν Αβια υἱὸν αὐτοῦ
καὶ εἶπεν Ιεροβοαμ πρὸς 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

25 καὶ ᾠκοδόμησεν Ιεροβοαμ τὴν Σικιμα τὴν ἐν ὄρει Εφραιμ καὶ κατῴκει ἐν αὐτῇ καὶ ἐξῆλθεν ἐκεῖθεν καὶ ᾠκοδόμησεν τὴν Φανουηλ

26 καὶ εἶπεν Ιεροβοαμ ἐν τῇ καρδίᾳ αὐτοῦ ἰδοὺ νῦν ἐπιστρέψει ἡ βασιλεία εἰς οἶκον Δαυιδ

27 ἐὰν ἀναβῇ ὁ λαὸς οὗτος ἀναφέρειν θυσίας ἐν οἴκῳ κυρίου εἰς Ιερουσαλημ καὶ ἐπιστραφήσεται καρδία τοῦ λαοῦ πρὸς κύριον καὶ κύριον αὐτῶν πρὸς Ροβοαμ βασιλέα Ιουδα καὶ ἀποκτενοῦσίν με

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

29 καὶ ἔθετο τὴν μίαν ἐν Βαιθηλ καὶ τὴν μίαν ἔδωκεν ἐν Δαν

30 καὶ ἐγένετο ὁ λόγος οὗτος εἰς ἁμαρτίαν καὶ ἐπορεύετο ὁ λαὸς πρὸ προσώπου τῆς μιᾶς ἕως Δαν

31 καὶ ἐποίησεν οἴκους ἐφ᾽ ὑψηλῶν καὶ ἐποίησεν ἱερεῖς μέρος τι ἐκ τοῦ λαοῦ οἳ οὐκ ἦσαν ἐκ τῶν υἱῶν Λευι

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

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

1 Venit autem Roboam in Sichem: illuc enim congregatus erat omnis Israël ad constituendum eum regem.

2 At vero Jeroboam filius Nabat, cum adhuc esset in Ægypto profugus a facie regis Salomonis, audita morte ejus, reversus est de Ægypto.

3 Miseruntque et vocaverunt eum: venit ergo Jeroboam, et omnis multitudo Israël, et locuti sunt ad Roboam, dicentes:

4 Pater tuus durissimum jugum imposuit nobis: tu itaque nunc imminue paululum de imperio patris tui durissimo, et de jugo gravissimo quod imposuit nobis, et serviemus tibi.

5 Qui ait eis: Ite usque ad tertium diem, et revertimini ad me. Cumque abiisset populus,

6 iniit consilium rex Roboam cum senioribus qui assistebant coram Salomone patre ejus cum adhuc viveret, et ait: Quod datis mihi consilium, ut respondeam populo huic?

7 Qui dixerunt ei: Si hodie obedieris populo huic, et servieris, et petitioni eorum cesseris, locutusque fueris ad eos verba lenia, erunt tibi servi cunctis diebus.

8 Qui dereliquit consilium senum, quod dederant ei, et adhibuit adolescentes, qui nutriti fuerant cum eo, et assistebant illi,

9 dixitque ad eos: Quod mihi datis consilium, ut respondeam populo huic, qui dixerunt mihi: Levius fac jugum quod imposuit pater tuus super nos?

10 Et dixerunt ei juvenes qui nutriti fuerant cum eo: Sic loqueris populo huic, qui locuti sunt ad te, dicentes: Pater tuus aggravavit jugum nostrum: tu releva nos. Sic loqueris ad eos: Minimus digitus meus grossior est dorso patris mei.

11 Et nunc pater meus posuit super vos jugum grave, ego autem addam super jugum vestrum: pater meus cecidit vos flagellis, ego autem cædam vos scorpionibus.

12 Venit ergo Jeroboam et omnis populus ad Roboam die tertia, sicut locutus fuerat rex, dicens: Revertimini ad me die tertia.

13 Responditque rex populo dura, derelicto consilio seniorum quod ei dederant,

14 et locutus est eis secundum consilium juvenum, dicens: Pater meus aggravavit jugum vestrum, ego autem addam jugo vestro: pater meus cecidit vos flagellis, ego autem cædam vos scorpionibus.

15 Et non acquievit rex populo: quoniam aversatus fuerat eum Dominus, ut suscitaret verbum suum quod locutus fuerat in manu Ahiæ Silonitæ, ad Jeroboam filium Nabat.

16 Videns itaque populus quod noluisset eos audire rex, respondit ei dicens: Quæ nobis pars in David? vel quæ hæreditas in filio Isai? vade in tabernacula tua, Israël: nunc vide domum tuam, David. Et abiit Israël in tabernacula sua.

17 Super filios autem Israël, quicumque habitabant in civitatibus Juda, regnavit Roboam.

18 Misit ergo rex Roboam Aduram, qui erat super tributa: et lapidavit eum omnis Israël, et mortuus est. Porro rex Roboam festinus ascendit currum, et fugit in Jerusalem:

19 recessitque Israël a domo David usque in præsentem diem.

20 Factum est autem cum audisset omnis Israël quod reversus esset Jeroboam, miserunt, et vocaverunt eum congregato cœtu, et constituerunt eum regem super omnem Israël: nec secutus est quisquam domum David præter tribum Juda solam.

21 Venit autem Roboam Jerusalem, et congregavit universam domum Juda, et tribum Benjamin, centum octoginta millia electorum virorum bellatorum, ut pugnarent contra domum Israël, et reducerent regnum Roboam filio Salomonis.

22 Factus est autem sermo Domini ad Semeiam virum Dei, dicens:

23 Loquere ad Roboam filium Salomonis regem Juda, et ad omnem domum Juda, et Benjamin, et reliquos de populo, dicens:

24 Hæc dicit Dominus: Non ascendetis, neque bellabitis contra fratres vestros filios Israël: revertatur vir in domum suam: a me enim factum est verbum hoc. Audierunt sermonem Domini, et reversi sunt de itinere, sicut eis præceperat Dominus.

25 Ædificavit autem Jeroboam Sichem in monte Ephraim, et habitavit ibi: et egressus inde ædificavit Phanuel.

26 Dixitque Jeroboam in corde suo: Nunc revertetur regnum ad domum David,

27 si ascenderit populus iste ut faciat sacrificia in domo Domini in Jerusalem: et convertetur cor populi hujus ad dominum suum Roboam regem Juda, interficientque me, et revertentur ad eum.

28 Et excogitato consilio fecit duos vitulos aureos, et dixit eis: Nolite ultra ascendere in Jerusalem: ecce dii tui Israël, qui te eduxerunt de terra Ægypti.

29 Posuitque unum in Bethel, et alterum in Dan:

30 et factum est verbum hoc in peccatum: ibat enim populus ad adorandum vitulum usque in Dan.

31 Et fecit fana in excelsis, et sacerdotes de extremis populi, qui non erant de filiis Levi.

32 Constituitque diem solemnem in mense octavo, quintadecima die mensis, in similitudinem solemnitatis quæ celebrabatur in Juda. Et ascendens altare, similiter fecit in Bethel, ut immolaret vitulis quos fabricatus fuerat: constituitque in Bethel sacerdotes excelsorum quæ fecerat.

33 Et ascendit super altare quod exstruxerat in Bethel, quintadecima die mensis octavi, quem finxerat de corde suo: et fecit solemnitatem filiis Israël, et ascendit super altare, ut adoleret incensum.
