And [G2532] he said [G2036] to them [G1473], What [G5100] do you [G1473] advise [G4823], and [G2532] what [G5100] should I answer the [G3588] to this people [G2992][G3778] the [G3588] speaking [G2980] to [G4314] me [G1473], saying [G3004], Lighten [G2893] up the [G3588] neck yoke which [G3739] put [G1325] the [G3588] father [G3962] of you [G1473] upon [G1909] us [G1473]?
And [G2532] they spoke [G2980] to [G4314] him [G1473], the [G3588] young men [G3808] the [G3588] having been brought up [G1625] with [G3326] him [G1473]; and [G2532] they said [G2036], Thus [G3592] you will speak [G2980] the [G3588] to this people [G2992][G3778], to the [G3588] [ones] speaking [G2980] to [G4314] you [G1473], saying [G3004], the [G3588] Father [G3962] of you [G1473] oppressed the [G3588] our neck yoke [G1473], and [G2532] you [G1473] now [G3568] lighten it [G2893] from us [G1473]! Thus [G3592] you will say [G2046] to [G4314] them [G1473], the [G3588] My thinness [G1473] thicker than is the [G3588] loin [G3751] of the [G3588] father [G3962] of me [G1473].

And [G2532] Israel went forth to [G1519] the [G3588] his tents [G4638][G1473].
And [G2532] the [G3588] sons [G5207] of Israel, the [G3588] [ones] dwelling [G2730] in [G1722] the [G3588] cities [G4172] of Judah -- reigned over [G1909] them [G1438] the [G3588] Rehoboam].

And [G2532] it came to pass [G1096] as [G5613] heard all [G3956] Israel] that [G3754] Jeroboam returned from out of [G1537] Egypt, that [G2532] they sent and [G2532] called [G2564] him [G1473] to [G1519] the [G3588] congregation [G4864]. And [G2532] they gave him reign [G1473] over [G1909] Israel. And [G2532] there was none [G3756] [following] after [G3694] house [G3624] of David except chiefdom of Judah and [G2532] Benjamin only [G3441].
And [G2532] Rehoboam entered [G1525] into [G1519] Jerusalem, and [G2532] he held an assembly of all [G3956] the [G3588] congregation [G4864] of Judah, and [G2532] chiefdom of Benjamin -- a hundred [G1540] and [G2532] twenty [G1501] thousand [G5505] young men [G3494] for making [G4160] war [G4171], the [G3588] to wage war [G4170] against [G4314] house [G3624] of Israel, to return [G1994] the [G3588] government ' of Rehoboam son [G5207] of Solomon.

Thus [G3592] says [G3004] Boss '[G2962], You will not [G3756] go up , nor [G3761] wage war [G4170] with [G3326] the [G3588] your brothers [G1473] of sons [G5207] of Israel. Let return each [G1538] to [G1519] the [G3588] his house [G3624][G1473]! for [G3754] from [G1537] me [G1473] has taken place [G1096] the [G3588] this thing [G4487][G3778]. And [G2532] they hearkened to the [G3588] word [G3056] of Boss '[G2962], and [G2532] they ceased [G2664] the [G3588] to go [G4198] against [G2596] the [G3588] thing [G4487] of Boss '[G2962].
And [G2532] Jeroboam built [G3618] the [G3588] Shechem the [G3588] in [G1722] raised-place (mountain) '[G3735] Ephraim, and [G2532] he dwelt [G2730] in [G1722] it [G1473]. And [G2532] he went forth [G1831] from there [G1564] and [G2532] built [G3618] the [G3588] Penuel.
And [G2532] Jeroboam said [G2036] in [G1722] the [G3588] his heart [G2588][G1473], look [G2400], now [G3568] will return [G1994] the [G3588] government ' to [G1519] house [G3624] of David,

And [G2532] he said [G2036] to [G4314] the [G3588] people [G2992], Let it be enough [G2427] for you [G1473] to go up to [G1519] Jerusalem! look [G2400], the [G3588] your gods '[G2316][G1473], O Israel, the [G3588] [ones] leading you [G1473] from out of [G1537] land '[G1093] of Egypt.
