2 Chronicles 10
10:1 And Rehoboam went to Shechem: for to Shechem were
all Israel come to make him king.
10:2 And it came
to pass, when Jeroboam the son of Nebat, who was in Egypt, whither he had fled
from the presence of Solomon the king, heard it, that Jeroboam returned out of
10:3 And they
sent and called him. So Jeroboam and all Israel came and spake to Rehoboam,
10:4 Thy father
made our yoke grievous: now therefore ease thou somewhat the grievous servitude
of thy father, and his heavy yoke that he put upon us, and we will serve thee.
10:5 And he said
unto them, Come again unto me after three days. And the people departed.
10:6 And king
Rehoboam took counsel with the old men that had stood before Solomon his father
while he yet lived, saying, What counsel give ye me to return answer to this
10:7 And they
spake unto him, saying, If thou be kind to this people, and please them, and
speak good words to them, they will be thy servants for ever.
10:8 But he
forsook the counsel which the old men gave him, and took counsel with the young
men that were brought up with him, that stood before him.
10:9 And he said
unto them, What advice give ye that we may return answer to this people, which
have spoken to me, saying, Ease somewhat the yoke that thy father did put upon
10:10 And the
young men that were brought up with him spake unto him, saying, Thus shalt thou
answer the people that spake unto thee, saying, Thy father made our yoke heavy,
but make thou it somewhat lighter for us; thus shalt thou say unto them, My
little finger shall be thicker than my father's loins.
10:11 For whereas
my father put a heavy yoke upon you, I will put more to your yoke: my father
chastised you with whips, but I will chastise you with scorpions.
10:12 So Jeroboam
and all the people came to Rehoboam on the third day, as the king bade, saying,
Come again to me on the third day.
10:13 And the
king answered them roughly; and king Rehoboam forsook the counsel of the old
answered them after the advice of the young men, saying, My father made your
yoke heavy, but I will add thereto: my father chastised you with whips, but I
will chastise you with scorpions.
10:15 So the king
hearkened not unto the people: for the cause was of God, that the LORD might
perform his word, which he spake by the hand of Ahijah the Shilonite to Jeroboam
the son of Nebat.
10:16 And when
all Israel saw that the king would not hearken unto them, the people answered
the king, saying, What portion have we in David? and we have none inheritance in
the son of Jesse: every man to your tents, O Israel: and now, David, see to
thine own house. So all Israel went to their tents.
10:17 But as for
the children of Israel that dwelt in the cities of Judah, Rehoboam reigned over
10:18 Then king
Rehoboam sent Hadoram that was over the tribute; and the children of Israel
stoned him with stones, that he died. But king Rehoboam made speed to get him up
to his chariot, to flee to Jerusalem.
10:19 And Israel
rebelled against the house of David unto this day.
