np. Genesis 1, 1 - 5 „The Story of Creation. 1In the beginning, when God created the heavens and the earth 2and the earth was without form or shape, with darkness over the abyss and a mighty wind sweeping over the waters. 3Then God said: Let there be light, and there was light. 4God saw that the light was good. God then separated the light from the darkness. 5God called the light “day,” and the darkness he called “night.” Evening came, and morning followed—the first day”.

„After he had eaten bread and drunk, they saddled for him the donkey that belonged to the prophet who had brought him back, 24and he set out. But a lion met him on the road, and killed him. His body lay sprawled on the road, and the donkey remained standing by it, and so did the lion. 25Some passersby saw the body lying in the road, with the lion standing beside it, and carried the news to the city where the old prophet lived. 26On hearing it, the prophet who had brought him back from his journey said: It is the man of God who rebelled against the charge of the LORD. The LORD has delivered him to a lion, which mangled and killed him, according to the word which the LORD had spoken to him. 27Then he said to his sons, Saddle the donkey for me, and they saddled it. 28He went off and found the body sprawled on the road with the donkey and the lion standing beside it. The lion had not eaten the body nor had it harmed the donkey. 29The prophet lifted up the body of the man of God and put it on the donkey, and brought him back to the city to mourn and to bury him. 30He laid the man’s body in his own grave, and they mourned over it: Alas, my brother! 31After he had buried him, he said to his sons, When I die, bury me in the grave where the man of God is buried. Lay my bones beside his. 32 For the word which he proclaimed by the word of the LORD against the altar in Bethel and against all the temples on the high places in the cities of Samaria shall certainly come to pass. 33Even after this, Jeroboam did not turn from his evil way, but again made priests for the high places from among the common people. Whoever desired it was installed as a priest of the high places. 34This is the account of the sin of the house of Jeroboam for which it was to be cut off and destroyed from the face of the earth”.
„There was an old prophet living in Bethel, whose son came and told him all that the man of God had done that day in Bethel. When his sons repeated to their father the words the man of God had spoken to the king, 12the father asked them, Which way did he go? So his sons pointed out to him the road taken by the man of God who had come from Judah. 13Then he said to his sons, Saddle the donkey for me. When they had saddled it, he mounted 14and followed the man of God, whom he found seated under a terebinth. When he asked him, Are you the man of God who came from Judah? he answered, Yes. 15Then he said, Come home with me and have some bread. 16I cannot return with you or go with you, and I cannot eat bread or drink water with you in this place, he answered, 17for I was told by the word of the LORD: You shall not eat bread or drink water there, and do not go back the way you came. 18But he said to him, I, too, am a prophet like you, and an angel told me by the word of the LORD: Bring him back with you to your house to eat bread and drink water. But he was lying to him. 19So he went back with him, and ate bread and drank water in his house. 20But while they were sitting at table, the word of the LORD came to the prophet who had brought him back, 21and he cried out to the man of God who had come from Judah: Thus says the LORD: Because you rebelled against the charge of the LORD and did not keep the command which the LORD, your God, gave you, 22but returned and ate bread and drank water in the place where he told you, Do not eat bread or drink water, your corpse shall not be brought to the grave of your ancestors”.

A man of God...

„A man of God came from Judah to Bethel by the word of the LORD, while Jeroboam was standing at the altar to burn incense. 2 He cried out against the altar by the word of the LORD: Altar, altar, thus says the LORD: A child shall be born to the house of David, Josiah by name, who shall slaughter upon you the priests of the high places who burn incense upon you, and they shall burn human bones upon you. 3 He also gave a sign that same day and said: This is the sign that the LORD has spoken: The altar shall be torn apart and the ashes on it shall be scattered. 4When the king heard the word of the man of God which he was crying out against the altar in Bethel, Jeroboam stretched forth his hand from the altar and said, Seize him! But the hand he stretched forth against him withered, so that he could not draw it back. 5(The altar was torn apart and the ashes from the altar were scattered, in accordance with the sign the man of God gave by the word of the LORD.) 6Then the king said to the man of God, Entreat the LORD, your God, and intercede for me that my hand may be restored. So the man of God entreated the LORD, and the king’s hand was restored as it was before. 7The king told the man of God, Come with me to the house for some refreshment so that I may give you a present. 8The man of God said to the king, If you gave me half your palace, I would not go with you, nor eat bread or drink water in this place. 9For I was instructed by the word of the LORD: Do not eat bread or drink water, and do not return by the way you came. 10So he departed by another road and did not go back the way he had come to Bethel”.
„Jeroboam established a feast in the eighth month on the fifteenth day of the month like the pilgrimage feast in Judah, and he went up to the altar. He did this in Bethel, sacrificing to the calves he had made. He stationed in Bethel the priests of the high places he had built. 33Jeroboam went up to the altar he built in Bethel on the fifteenth day of the eighth month, the month he arbitrarily chose. He established a feast for the Israelites, and he went up to the altar to burn incense”.
„Jeroboam thought to himself: Now the kingdom will return to the house of David.n27If this people go up to offer sacrifices in the house of the LORD in Jerusalem, the hearts of this people will return to their master, Rehoboam, king of Judah, and they will kill me and return to Rehoboam, king of Judah.n28 The king took counsel, made two calves of gold, and said to the people: You have been going up to Jerusalem long enough. Here are your gods, O Israel, who brought you up from the land of Egypt. 29 And he put one in Bethel, the other in Dan. 30This led to sin, because the people frequented these calves in Bethel and in Dan. 31He also built temples on the high places and made priests from among the common people who were not Levites”.
„On his arrival in Jerusalem, Rehoboam assembled all the house of Judah and the tribe of Benjamin—one hundred and eighty thousand elite warriors—to wage war against the house of Israel, to restore the kingdom to Rehoboam, son of Solomon. 22However, the word of God came to Shemaiah, a man of God: 23Say to Rehoboam, son of Solomon, king of Judah, and to all the house of Judah and to Benjamin, and to the rest of the people:n24Thus says the LORD: You must not go out to war against your fellow Israelites. Return home, each of you, for it is I who have brought this about. They obeyed the word of the LORD and turned back, according to the word of the LORD. 25Jeroboam built up Shechem in the hill country of Ephraim and lived there. Then he left it and built up Penuel”.
„The king did not listen to the people, for this turn of events was from the LORD: he fulfilled the word the LORD had spoken through Ahijah the Shilonite to Jeroboam, son of Nebat. 16 When all Israel saw that the king did not listen to them, the people answered the king: What share have we in David? We have no heritage in the son of Jesse. To your tents, Israel! Now look to your own house, David. So Israel went off to their tents. 17But Rehoboam continued to reign over the Israelites who lived in the cities of Judah. 18King Rehoboam then sent out Adoram, who was in charge of the forced labor, but all Israel stoned him to death. King Rehoboam then managed to mount his chariot and flee to Jerusalem. 19And so Israel has been in rebellion against the house of David to this day. 20When all Israel heard that Jeroboam had returned, they summoned him to an assembly and made him king over all Israel. None remained loyal to the house of David except the tribe of Judah alone”.
„Rehoboam went to Shechem, where all Israel had come to make him king. 2When Jeroboam, son of Nebat, heard about it, he was still in Egypt. He had fled from King Solomon and remained in Egypt, 3and they sent for him. Then Jeroboam and the whole assembly of Israel came and they said to Rehoboam, 4Your father put a heavy yoke on us. If you now lighten the harsh servitude and the heavy yoke your father imposed on us, we will be your servants. 5He answered them, Come back to me in three days, and the people went away. 6King Rehoboam asked advice of the elders who had been in his father Solomon’s service while he was alive, and asked, How do you advise me to answer this people? 7They replied, If today you become the servant of this people and serve them, and give them a favorable answer, they will be your servants forever. 8But he ignored the advice the elders had given him, and asked advice of the young men who had grown up with him and were in his service. 9He said to them, What answer do you advise that we should give this people, who have told me, Lighten the yoke your father imposed on us? 10The young men who had grown up with him replied, This is what you must say to this people who have told you, Your father made our yoke heavy; you lighten it for us. You must say, My little finger is thicker than my father’s loins. 11My father put a heavy yoke on you, but I will make it heavier. My father beat you with whips, but I will beat you with scorpions. 12Jeroboam and the whole people came back to King Rehoboam on the third day, as the king had instructed them: Come back to me in three days. 13Ignoring the advice the elders had given him, the king gave the people a harsh answer. 14He spoke to them as the young men had advised: My father made your yoke heavy, but I will make it heavier. My father beat you with whips, but I will beat you with scorpions”.
„Solomon had a servant, Jeroboam, son of Nebat, an Ephraimite from Zeredah with a widowed mother named Zeruah. He rebelled against the king. 27This is how he came to rebel. King Solomon was building Millo, closing up the breach of the City of David, his father. 28Jeroboam was a very able man, and when Solomon saw that the young man was also a good worker, he put him in charge of all the carriers conscripted from the house of Joseph. 29At that time Jeroboam left Jerusalem, and the prophet Ahijah the Shilonite met him on the road. The prophet was wearing a new cloak, and when the two were alone in the open country, 30 Ahijah took off his new cloak, tore it into twelve pieces, 31 and said to Jeroboam: Take ten pieces for yourself. Thus says the LORD, the God of Israel: I am about to tear the kingdom out of Solomon’s hand and will give you ten of the tribes. 32He shall have one tribe for the sake of my servant David, and for the sake of Jerusalem, the city I have chosen out of all the tribes of Israel. 33For they have forsaken me and have bowed down to Astarte, goddess of the Sidonians, Chemosh, god of Moab, and Milcom, god of the Ammonites. They have not walked in my ways or done what is right in my eyes, according to my statutes and my ordinances, as David his father did. 34Yet I will not take any of the kingdom from Solomon himself, but will keep him a prince as long as he lives, for the sake of David my servant, whom I have chosen, who kept my commandments and statutes. 35But I will take the kingdom from his son’s hand and give it to you—that is, the ten tribes. 36I will give his son one tribe, that David my servant may always have a holding before me in Jerusalem, the city I have chosen, to set my name there. 37You I will take and you shall reign over all that you desire and shall become king of Israel. 38If, then, you heed all that I command you, walking in my ways, and do what is right in my eyes by keeping my statutes and my commandments like David my servant, I will be with you. I will build a lasting house for you, just as I did for David; I will give Israel to you. 39I will humble David’s line for this, but not forever. 40When Solomon tried to have Jeroboam killed, Jeroboam fled to Shishak, king of Egypt. He remained in Egypt until Solomon’s death. 41The rest of the acts of Solomon, with all that he did and his wisdom, are recorded in the book of the acts of Solomon. 42Solomon was king in Jerusalem over all Israel for forty years. 43Solomon rested with his ancestors and was buried in the City of David, his father, and Rehoboam his son succeeded him as king”.
„The LORD then raised up an adversary against Solomon: Hadad the Edomite, who was of the royal line in Edom. 15 Earlier, when David had conquered Edom, Joab, the commander of the army, while going to bury the slain, killed every male in Edom. 16Joab and all Israel remained there six months until they had killed off every male in Edom. 17But Hadad, with some Edomite servants of his father, fled toward Egypt. Hadad was then a young boy. 18They left Midian and came to Paran; they gathered men from Paran and came to Egypt, to Pharaoh, king of Egypt; he gave Hadad a house, appointed him rations, and assigned him land. 19Hadad won great favor with Pharaoh, so that he gave him in marriage his sister-in-law, the sister of Queen Tahpenes, his own wife. 20Tahpenes’ sister bore Hadad a son, Genubath. Tahpenes weaned him in Pharaoh’s palace. And Genubath lived in Pharaoh’s house, with Pharaoh’s own sons. 21When Hadad in Egypt heard that David rested with his ancestors and that Joab, the commander of the army, was dead, he said to Pharaoh, Give me leave to return to my own land. 22Pharaoh said to him, What do you lack with me, that you are seeking to return to your own land? He answered, Nothing, but please let me go! 23God raised up against Solomon another adversary, Rezon, the son of Eliada, who had fled from his lord, Hadadezer, king of Zobah, 24when David was slaughtering them. Rezon gathered men about him and became leader of a marauding band. They went to Damascus, settled there, and made him king in Damascus. 25Rezon was an adversary of Israel as long as Solomon lived, in addition to the harm done by Hadad, and he felt contempt for Israel. He became king over Aram”.
