23 And it came to be, after he had eaten bread and after he had drunk, that he saddled the donkey for him, for the prophet whom he had brought back. 24 And he went, and a lion met him on the way and killed him. And his body was thrown on the way. And the donkey was standing by it, and the lion was standing by the body. 25 And see, men were passing by and saw the body thrown on the way, while the lion was standing by the body. And they went and reported it in the city where the old prophet dwelt. 26 And the prophet who had brought him back from the way heard it, and said, “It is the man of Elohim who rebelled against the mouth of yhwh, and yhwh gave him to the lion, and it tore him apart and killed him, according to the word of yhwh which He spoke to him.” 27 And he spoke to his sons, saying, “Saddle the donkey for me.” And they saddled it. 28 So he went and found his body thrown on the way, and the donkey and the lion standing by the body. The lion had not eaten the body nor mauled the donkey. 29 And the prophet lifted up the body of the man of Elohim, and placed it on the donkey, and brought it back. And the old prophet came to the city to mourn, and to bury him, 30 and he placed his body in his own tomb. And they lamented over him, saying, “Oh, my brother!” 31 And it came to be, after he had buried him, that he spoke to his sons, saying, “When I am dead, then you shall bury me in the tomb where the man of Elohim is buried. Lay my bones beside his bones. 32 “For the word which he cried out, by the word of yhwh, against the altar in Bĕyth Ěl, and against all the houses of the high places which are in the cities of Shomeron, shall certainly come to be.” 33 After this event Yaroḇ‛am did not turn from his evil way, but again he made priests from all sorts of people for the high places. Whoever wished, he ordained, to become one of the priests of the high places. 34 And this matter was the sin of the house of Yaroḇ‛am, even to cut it off and destroy it from the face of the earth.


Jermiah 3:1 Elohim said, “If a man puts away his wife, and she goes from him and becomes another man’s, does he return to her again? Would not that land be made greatly unclean? But you have committed whoring with many lovers. And would you return to Me?” declares yhwh. 2 “Lift up your eyes to the bare heights and see: where have you not lain with men? Besides the ways you have sat for them like an Araḇian in the wilderness. And you made the land unclean with your whorings and your evil. 3 “Therefore the showers have been withheld, and there has been no latter rain. You have had a whore’s forehead, you refuse to be ashamed. 4 “Shall you not from now on cry to Me, ‘My father, You are the guide of my youth? 5 ‘Does one bear a grudge forever? Does one keep it to the end?’ See, you have spoken and done the evils that you could.” 6 And yhwh said to me in the days of Yoshiyahu the sovereign, “Have you seen what backsliding Yisra’ĕl has done? She has gone up on every high mountain and under every green tree, and there committed whoring. 7 “And after she had done all these, I said ‘Return to Me.’ But she did not return. And her treacherous sister Yehuḏah saw it. 8 “And I saw that for all the causes for which backsliding Yisra’ĕl had committed adultery, I had put her away and given her a certificate of divorce; yet her treacherous sister Yehuḏah did not fear, but went and committed whoring too. 9 “And it came to be, through her frivolous whoring, that she defiled the land and committed adultery with stones and wood. 10 “And yet for all this her treacherous sister Yehuḏah has not turned to Me with all her heart, but falsely,” declares yhwh. 11 And yhwh said to me, “Backsliding Yisra’ĕl has shown herself more righteous than treacherous Yehuḏah. 12 “Go and proclaim these words toward the north, and say, ‘Return, O backsliding Yisra’ĕl,’ declares yhwh, ‘I shall not look on you in displeasure, for I am kind,’ declares yhwh, ‘and I do not bear a grudge forever. 13 ‘Only, acknowledge your crookedness, because you have transgressed against yhwh your Elohim, and have scattered your ways to strangers under every green tree, and you have not obeyed My voice,’ declares yhwh. 14 “Return, O backsliding children,” declares yhwh, “for I shall rule over you, and shall take you, one from a city and two from a clan*n1, and shall bring you to Tsiyon. 15 “And I shall give you shepherds according to My heart, and they shall feed you with knowledge and understanding. 16 “And it shall be, when you have increased, and shall bear fruit in the land in those days,” declares yhwh, “that they no longer say, ‘The ark of the covenant of yhwh.’ Neither would it come to heart, nor would they remember it, nor would they visit it, nor would it be made again. 17 “At that time Yerushalayim shall be called the throne of yhwh, and all the nations shall be gathered to it, to the Name of yhwh, to Yerushalayim, and no longer walk after the stubbornness of their evil heart. 18 “In those days the house of Yehuḏah shall go to the house of Yisra’ĕl, and they shall come together out of the land of the north to the land that I have given as an inheritance to your fathers. 19 “But I said, ‘How would I put you among the children and give you a pleasant land, a splendid inheritance of the hosts of nations?’ “And I said, ‘Call Me, “My Father,” and do not turn away from Me.’ 20 “But indeed as a wife betrays her husband, so have you betrayed Me, O house of Yisra’ĕl,” declares yhwh. 21 A voice was heard on the bare heights, weeping supplications of the children of Yisra’ĕl, because they have perverted their way, they have forgotten yhwh their Elohim. 22 “Return, O backsliding children, I shall make your backslidings cease.” “See, we have come to You, for You are yhwh our Elohim. 23 “Truly, delusion comes from the high hills, the noisy throng on the mountains. Truly, in yhwh our Elohim is the deliverance of Yisra’ĕl. 24 “For shame has devoured the labour of our fathers from our youth, their flocks and their herds, their sons and their daughters. 25 “We shall lie down in our shame, while our reproach covers us. For we have sinned against yhwh our Elohim, we and our fathers, from our youth even to this day, and have not obeyed the voice of yhwh our Elohim.”
