1 Kings 14
Peshitta Holy Bible Translated Par ▾ 
1At that time Abia, the son of Yorbaam, became ill. 2And Yorbaam said to his wife: “Arise, be disguised and they will not know that you are the wife of Yorbaam, and get yourself to Shiloh. Behold, Akhiah the Prophet is there who said it was for me that I would reign over this people. 3And take in your hands ten loaves of bread and dried fruit, and a narrow necked jug of honey, and go to him and he will show you what happens to the boy.

4And the wife of Yorbaam did so, and she arose and she went to Shiloh, and she entered the house of Akhiah, and Akhiah was unable to see a thing, because his eyes were dull from his age. 5And LORD JEHOVAH said to Akhiah: “Behold, the wife of Yorbaam has come to you to ask of you a word about his son who is sick. thus and so say to her, and when she comes in, behold she is disguised.”

6And when Akhiah heard the sound of her feet when she came in at the gate, he said to her: “Enter, wife of Yorbaam. Why are you disguised? Also I am sent hard things concerning you. 7Go and say to Yorbaam. ”Thus says LORD JEHOVAH, God of Israel: ‘I have raised you up from the people and I have made you the Leader over my people Israel. 8And I have torn the kingdom from those of the house of David and I have given it to you, and you have not been like David my Servant, who kept my commands, and walked after me with all his heart to do what is beautiful before me. 9And you have done more evil than all who were before you, and you went and you have made for yourself molten gods to anger me, and you cast me behind your body. 10Because of this, behold, I bring evil over the household of Yorbaam, and I shall destroy for Yorbaam everyone who pisses on a wall, and him who binds and unbinds in Israel, and I shall glean after the house of Yorbaam as if they glean the vines of a vineyard, as when the picking is over. 11He who will die of Yorbaam in the city the dogs will eat, and he who will die of him in the field shall birds of the sky eat, because LORD JEHOVAH has spoken. 12And you, get up and go to your house, and whenever your feet enter the city, the boy shall die. 13And all Israel shall mourn for him, and they shall bury him; because this one alone shall enter Yorabaam’s tomb, because in him a good matter was found before LORD JEHOVAH, God of Israel, in the house of Yorbaam. 14And LORD JEHOVAH shall raise up for himself a King over Israel, and he shall destroy those of the household of Yorbaam from today, and whoever is after this.

15And LORD JEHOVAH shall strike Israel like a reed shakes in the wind, and he shall uproot Israel from the good land which he gave to their fathers, and he shall scatter them at the crossing of the river, because they made for themselves feared idols, and they angered LORD JEHOVAH. 16And he shall hand over Israel because of the sins of Yorbaam which he sinned and caused Israel to sin.”

17And the wife of Yorbaam arose and she went, and she entered Tertsa. She entered at the gate of her house, and the boy died. 18And all of Israel mourned for him, and they buried him according to the word of LORD JEHOVAH, which he spoke by the hand of his Servant, Akhiah the Prophet, the Shilonite.

19And the rest of the accounts of Yorbaam, and that which he fought, and that which he reigned, behold they are written in the Book of Chronicles of the Kings of Israel. 20And the days that Yorbaam reigned over Israel were twenty and two years, and Yorbaam fell asleep with his fathers, and Nadab his son reigned after him.

21And Rekhabaam, son of Solomon, reigned over Yehuda. Rekhabaam was a son of forty and one years when he was made King, and he reigned seventeen years in Jerusalem, the city which LORD JEHOVAH chose from all of the tribes of Israel to put his name there, and the name of his mother was Nama, an Ammonite. 22And Yehuda did what is evil before LORD JEHOVAH, and they provoked him to jealousy in everything that their fathers did, and with their sins that they sinned. 23And they built up for themselves also those high places and statues and idols on every high hill that there was, and under every shade tree. 24And also fornication was in the land, and they did according to every abomination of the nations which LORD JEHOVAH destroyed from before the sons of Israel.

25And it was in the fifth year of King Rekhabaam, Shishaq the King of Egypt went up against Jerusalem. 26And he took the treasure of the house of LORD JEHOVAH and the treasure of the house of the King, and he took all of the shields of gold that Solomon had made. 27And King Rekhabaam made in their place shields of brass, and he delivered them into the hand of the Princes and of the Runners who stood guard at the gate of the house of the King. 28And at that time the King came into the house of LORD JEHOVAH, the Runners carried them and they brought them to the house of the Runners.

29And the rest of the accounts of Rekhabaam, and everything that he did, behold, they are written in the Book of Chronicles of the Kings of Yehuda. 30And war was between Rekhabaam and the house of Yorbaam all the days. 31And Rekhabaam fell asleep with his fathers and was buried in city of David, and Abiah his son reigned after him.
