1KI 13:30 He laid his body in his own grave; and they mourned over him, saying, “Alas, my brother!”
1KI 13:31 After he had buried him, he spoke to his sons, saying, “When I am dead, bury me in the tomb in which the man of God is buried. Lay my bones beside his bones.
1KI 13:32 For the saying which he cried by Yahweh’s word against the altar in Bethel, and against all the houses of the high places which are in the cities of Samaria, will surely happen.”
1KI 13:33 After this thing Jeroboam didn’t return from his evil way, but again made priests of the high places from among all the people. Whoever wanted to, he consecrated him, that there might be priests of the high places.
1KI 13:34 This thing became sin to the house of Jeroboam, even to cut it off, and to destroy it from off the surface of the earth.
1KI 14:1 At that time Abijah the son of Jeroboam became sick.
1KI 14:2 Jeroboam said to his wife, “Please get up and disguise yourself, so that you won’t be recognized as Jeroboam’s wife. Go to Shiloh. Behold, Ahijah the prophet is there, who said that I would be king over this people.
1KI 14:3 Take with you ten loaves of bread, some cakes, and a jar of honey, and go to him. He will tell you what will become of the child.”
1KI 14:4 Jeroboam’s wife did so, and arose, and went to Shiloh, and came to Ahijah’s house. Now Ahijah could not see; for his eyes were set by reason of his age.
1KI 14:5 Yahweh said to Ahijah, “Behold, Jeroboam’s wife is coming to inquire of you concerning her son; for he is sick. Tell her such and such; for it will be, when she comes in, that she will pretend to be another woman.”
1KI 14:6 So when Ahijah heard the sound of her feet as she came in at the door, he said, “Come in, Jeroboam’s wife! Why do you pretend to be another? For I am sent to you with heavy news.
1KI 14:7 Go, tell Jeroboam, ‘Yahweh, the God of Israel, says: “Because I exalted you from among the people, and made you prince over my people Israel,
1KI 14:8 and tore the kingdom away from David’s house, and gave it you; and yet you have not been as my servant David, who kept my commandments, and who followed me with all his heart, to do that only which was right in my eyes,
1KI 14:9 but have done evil above all who were before you, and have gone and made for yourself other gods, molten images, to provoke me to anger, and have cast me behind your back;
1KI 14:10 therefore, behold, I will bring evil on the house of Jeroboam, and will cut off from Jeroboam everyone who urinates on a wall, he who is shut up and he who is left at large in Israel, and will utterly sweep away the house of Jeroboam, as a man sweeps away dung, until it is all gone.
1KI 14:11 The dogs will eat he who belongs to Jeroboam who dies in the city; and the birds of the sky will eat he who dies in the field: for Yahweh has spoken it.”’
1KI 14:12 Arise therefore, and go to your house. When your feet enter into the city, the child will die.
1KI 14:13 All Israel will mourn for him and bury him; for he only of Jeroboam will come to the grave, because in him there is found some good thing toward Yahweh, the God of Israel, in the house of Jeroboam.
1KI 14:14 Moreover Yahweh will raise up a king for himself over Israel, who will cut off the house of Jeroboam. This is the day! What? Even now.
1KI 14:15 For Yahweh will strike Israel, as a reed is shaken in the water; and he will root up Israel out of this good land which he gave to their fathers, and will scatter them beyond the River, because they have made their Asherah poles, provoking Yahweh to anger.
1KI 14:16 He will give Israel up because of the sins of Jeroboam, which he has sinned, and with which he has made Israel to sin.”
1KI 14:17 Jeroboam’s wife arose and departed, and came to Tirzah. As she came to the threshold of the house, the child died.
1KI 14:18 All Israel buried him and mourned for him, according to Yahweh’s word, which he spoke by his servant Ahijah the prophet.
1KI 14:19 The rest of the acts of Jeroboam, how he fought, and how he reigned, behold, they are written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Israel.
1KI 14:20 The days which Jeroboam reigned were twenty two years, then he slept with his fathers, and Nadab his son reigned in his place.
1KI 14:21 Rehoboam the son of Solomon reigned in Judah. Rehoboam was forty-one years old when he began to reign, and he reigned seventeen years in Jerusalem, the city which Yahweh had chosen out of all the tribes of Israel, to put his name there. His mother’s name was Naamah the Ammonitess.
1KI 14:22 Judah did that which was evil in Yahweh’s sight, and they provoked him to jealousy with their sins which they committed, above all that their fathers had done.
1KI 14:23 For they also built for themselves high places, sacred pillars, and Asherah poles on every high hill and under every green tree.
1KI 14:24 There were also sodomites in the land. They did according to all the abominations of the nations which Yahweh drove out before the children of Israel.
1KI 14:25 In the fifth year of king Rehoboam, Shishak king of Egypt came up against Jerusalem,
1KI 14:26 and he took away the treasures of Yahweh’s house, and the treasures of the king’s house. He even took away all of it, including all the gold shields which Solomon had made.
1KI 14:27 King Rehoboam made shields of bronze in their place, and committed them to the hands of the captains of the guard, who kept the door of the king’s house.
1KI 14:28 It was so, that as often as the king went into Yahweh’s house, the guard bore them, and brought them back into the guard room.
1KI 14:29 Now the rest of the acts of Rehoboam, and all that he did, aren’t they written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Judah?
1KI 14:30 There was war between Rehoboam and Jeroboam continually.
1KI 14:31 Rehoboam slept with his fathers, and was buried with his fathers in David’s city. His mother’s name was Naamah the Ammonitess. Abijam his son reigned in his place.
1KI 15:1 Now in the eighteenth year of king Jeroboam the son of Nebat, Abijam began to reign over Judah.
1KI 15:2 He reigned three years in Jerusalem. His mother’s name was Maacah the daughter of Abishalom.
1KI 15:3 He walked in all the sins of his father, which he had done before him; and his heart was not perfect with Yahweh his God, as the heart of David his father.
1KI 15:4 Nevertheless for David’s sake, Yahweh his God gave him a lamp in Jerusalem, to set up his son after him, and to establish Jerusalem;
1KI 15:5 because David did that which was right in Yahweh’s eyes, and didn’t turn away from anything that he commanded him all the days of his life, except only in the matter of Uriah the Hittite.
1KI 15:6 Now there was war between Rehoboam and Jeroboam all the days of his life.
1KI 15:7 The rest of the acts of Abijam, and all that he did, aren’t they written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Judah? There was war between Abijam and Jeroboam.
1KI 15:8 Abijam slept with his fathers, and they buried him in David’s city; and Asa his son reigned in his place.
1KI 15:9 In the twentieth year of Jeroboam king of Israel, Asa began to reign over Judah.
1KI 15:10 He reigned forty-one years in Jerusalem. His mother’s name was Maacah the daughter of Abishalom.
1KI 15:11 Asa did that which was right in Yahweh’s eyes, as David his father did.
1KI 15:12 He put away the sodomites out of the land, and removed all the idols that his fathers had made.
1KI 15:13 He also removed Maacah his mother from being queen, because she had made an abominable image for an Asherah. Asa cut down her image and burned it at the brook Kidron.
1KI 15:14 But the high places were not taken away. Nevertheless the heart of Asa was perfect with Yahweh all his days.
1KI 15:15 He brought into Yahweh’s house the things that his father had dedicated, and the things that he himself had dedicated: silver, gold, and utensils.
1KI 15:16 There was war between Asa and Baasha king of Israel all their days.
1KI 15:17 Baasha king of Israel went up against Judah, and built Ramah, that he might not allow anyone to go out or come in to Asa king of Judah.
1KI 15:18 Then Asa took all the silver and the gold that was left in the treasures of Yahweh’s house, and the treasures of the king’s house, and delivered it into the hand of his servants. Then King Asa sent them to Ben Hadad, the son of Tabrimmon, the son of Hezion, king of Syria, who lived at Damascus, saying,

PSA 99:6 Moses and Aaron were among his priests, Samuel was among those who call on his name. They called on Yahweh, and he answered them.

JOH 19:26 Therefore when Jesus saw his mother, and the disciple whom he loved standing there, he said to his mother, “Woman, behold, your son!”
JOH 19:27 Then he said to the disciple, “Behold, your mother!” From that hour, the disciple took her to his own home.
JOH 19:28 After this, Jesus, seeing that all things were now finished, that the Scripture might be fulfilled, said, “I am thirsty.”
JOH 19:29 Now a vessel full of vinegar was set there; so they put a sponge full of the vinegar on hyssop, and held it at his mouth.
JOH 19:30 When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, “It is finished.” He bowed his head, and gave up his spirit.
JOH 19:31 Therefore the Jews, because it was the Preparation Day, so that the bodies wouldn’t remain on the cross on the Sabbath (for that Sabbath was a special one), asked of Pilate that their legs might be broken, and that they might be taken away.
JOH 19:32 Therefore the soldiers came, and broke the legs of the first, and of the other who was crucified with him;
JOH 19:33 but when they came to Jesus, and saw that he was already dead, they didn’t break his legs.
JOH 19:34 However one of the soldiers pierced his side with a spear, and immediately blood and water came out.
JOH 19:35 He who has seen has testified, and his testimony is true. He knows that he tells the truth, that you may believe.
JOH 19:36 For these things happened that the Scripture might be fulfilled, “A bone of him will not be broken.”
JOH 19:37 Again another Scripture says, “They will look on him whom they pierced.”
JOH 19:38 After these things, Joseph of Arimathaea, being a disciple of Jesus, but secretly for fear of the Jews, asked of Pilate that he might take away Jesus’ body. Pilate gave him permission. He came therefore and took away his body.
JOH 19:39 Nicodemus, who at first came to Jesus by night, also came bringing a mixture of myrrh and aloes, about a hundred Roman pounds.
JOH 19:40 So they took Jesus’ body, and bound it in linen cloths with the spices, as the custom of the Jews is to bury.
JOH 19:41 Now in the place where he was crucified there was a garden. In the garden was a new tomb in which no man had ever yet been laid.
JOH 19:42 Then because of the Jews’ Preparation Day (for the tomb was near at hand) they laid Jesus there.
JOH 20:1 Now on the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene went early, while it was still dark, to the tomb, and saw the stone taken away from the tomb.
JOH 20:2 Therefore she ran and came to Simon Peter and to the other disciple whom Jesus loved, and said to them, “They have taken away the Lord out of the tomb, and we don’t know where they have laid him!”
JOH 20:3 Therefore Peter and the other disciple went out, and they went toward the tomb.
JOH 20:4 They both ran together. The other disciple outran Peter, and came to the tomb first.
JOH 20:5 Stooping and looking in, he saw the linen cloths lying, yet he didn’t enter in.
