1 Kings 14:9-16

NSB(i) 9 »You have committed far greater sins than those who ruled before you. You have rejected me and have aroused my anger by making idols and metal images to worship. 10 »I will bring disaster on the house of Jeroboam. I will kill all your male descendants, young and old alike. I will get rid of your family. They will be swept away like dung. 11 »Dogs will eat members of your family who die in the city. Vultures will eat any who die in the open country. I, Jehovah, have spoken!« 12 Ahijah went on to say to Jeroboam's wife: »Go back home. As soon as you enter the town, your son will die. 13 »All the people of Israel will mourn for him and bury him. He will be the only member of Jeroboam's family who will be properly buried for he is the only one with whom Jehovah, the God of Israel, is pleased. 14 »Jehovah will place a king over Israel who will put an end to Jeroboam's house. 15 »Jehovah will punish Israel, and she will shake like a reed shaking in a stream. He will uproot the people of Israel from this good land that he gave to their ancestors. He will scatter them beyond the Euphrates River, because they have aroused his anger by making idols of the goddess Asherah. 16 »Jehovah will abandon Israel because Jeroboam sinned and led the people of Israel into sin.«
