KI1 14:15 For the LORD shall smite Israel, as a reed is shaken in the
water, and he shall root up Israel out of this good land, which he gave
to their fathers, and shall scatter them beyond the river, because they
have made their groves, provoking the LORD to anger.
KI1 14:16 And he shall give Israel up because of the sins of Jeroboam,
who did sin, and who made Israel to sin.
KI1 14:17 And Jeroboam's wife arose, and departed, and came to Tirzah:
and when she came to the threshold of the door, the child died;
KI1 14:18 And they buried him; and all Israel mourned for him,
according to the word of the LORD, which he spake by the hand of his
servant Ahijah the prophet.
