1 kings 12: 28 So the sovereign took counsel and made two calves of gold, and said to the people, “It is too much for you to go up to Yerushalayim. See, your mighty ones, O Yisra’ĕl, which brought you up from the land of Mitsrayim!” 29 And he set up one in Bĕyth Ěl, and the other he put in Dan. 30 And this matter became a sin, for the people went before the one as far as Dan. 31 And he made the house of high places, and made priests from all sorts of people, who were not of the sons of Lĕwi. 32 And Yaroḇ‛am performed a festival on the fifteenth day of the eighth month, like the festival that was in Yehuḏah, and he offered on the altar. So he did at Bĕyth Ěl, slaughtering to the calves that he had made. And at Bĕyth Ěl he appointed the priests of the high places which he had made. 33 And he made offerings on the altar which he had made at Bĕyth Ěl on the fifteenth day of the eighth month, in the month which he had devised in his own heart. And he performed a festival for the children of Yisra’ĕl, and offered on the altar and burned incense.


1Kings 13:1 And see, a man of Elohim went from Yehuḏah to Bĕyth Ěl by the word of yhwh, while Yaroḇ‛am was standing by the altar to burn incense. 2 And he cried out against the altar by the word of yhwh, and said, “O altar, altar! Thus said yhwh, ‘See, a son is to be born to the house of Dawiḏ, Yoshiyahu is his name. And on you he shall offer the priests of the high places who burn incense on you, and men’s bones be burned on you.’ ” 3 And he gave a sign the same day, saying, “This is the sign which yhwh has spoken: See, the altar is split apart, and the ashes on it is poured out.” 4 And it came to be when Sovereign Yaroḇ‛am heard the saying of the man of Elohim, who cried out against the altar in Bĕyth Ěl, that he stretched out his hand from the altar, saying, “Seize him!” Then his hand, which he stretched out toward him, dried up, so that he was unable to bring it back to him. 5 And the altar was split apart, and the ashes poured out from the altar, according to the sign which the man of Elohim had given by the word of yhwh. 6 And the sovereign answered and said to the man of Elohim, “Please appease the face of yhwh your Elohim, and pray for me, that my hand might be restored to me.” And the man of Elohim appeased the face of yhwh, and the sovereign’s hand was restored to him, and became as it was before. 7 The sovereign then said to the man of Elohim, “Come home with me and refresh yourself, and I give you a gift.” 8 But the man of Elohim said to the sovereign, “If you were to give me half your house, I do not go in with you, nor do I eat bread nor drink water in this place. 9 “For so He commanded me by the word of yhwh, saying, ‘Do not eat bread, nor drink water, nor return by the same way you came.’ ” 10 So he went another way and did not return by the way he came to Bĕyth Ěl. 11 And a certain old prophet was dwelling in Bĕyth Ěl, and his sons came and told him all the works that the man of Elohim had done that day in Bĕyth Ěl, the words which he had spoken to the sovereign. 12 And their father said to them, “Which way did he go?” And his sons had seen which way the man of Elohim went who came from Yehuḏah. 13 And he said to his sons, “Saddle the donkey for me.” And they saddled the donkey for him, and he rode on it, 14 and went after the man of Elohim, and found him sitting under a terebinth. And he said to him, “Are you the man of Elohim who came from Yehuḏah?” And he said, “I am.” 15 And he said to him, “Come home with me and eat bread.” 16 And he said, “I am not able to return with you or to go in with you, nor am I to eat bread or drink water with you in this place. 17 “For word came to me by the word of yhwh, ‘Do not eat bread nor drink water there, nor return by going the way you came.’ ” 18 And he said to him, “I too am a prophet like you, and a messenger spoke to me by the word of yhwh, saying, ‘Bring him back with you to your house, and let him eat bread and drink water.’ ” But he lied to him. 19 So he turned back with him, and ate bread in his house, and drank water. 20 And it came to be, as they sat at the table, that the word of yhwh came to the prophet who had brought him back, 21 and he cried out to the man of Elohim who came from Yehuḏah, saying, “Thus said yhwh, ‘Because you have rebelled against the mouth of yhwh, and have not guarded the command which yhwh your Elohim commanded you, 22 and turned back, and ate bread, and drank water in the place of which He said to you, “Do not eat bread nor drink water,” your body shall not enter the burying-place of your fathers.’ ”
