1 Kings 14:1-3 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

Chapter 14

Ahijah Announces Jeroboam’s Downfall.[a] At that time Abijah, son of Jeroboam, took sick. So Jeroboam said to his wife, “Go and disguise yourself so that no one will recognize you as Jeroboam’s wife. Then go to Shiloh, where you will find Ahijah the prophet. It was he who spoke the word that made me king over this people. Take along ten loaves, some cakes, and a jar of honey, and go to him. He will tell you what will happen to the child.”


  1. 14:1–20 The last major unit of the Jeroboam story recounts the story of Ahijah of Shiloh’s oracle condemning the entire house of Jeroboam; this is followed by a formulaic notice of Jeroboam’s death and the succession of his son. Compare the first unit of the Jeroboam story, 11:26–43, which recounted Ahijah’s oracle proclaiming Jeroboam’s kingship, followed by the formulaic notice of the death of Solomon.
