King James Version

1 Kings 13:1-34

1And, behold, there came a man of God out of Judah by the word of the LORD unto Beth-el: and Jeroboam stood by the altar to burn incense.13.1 burn: or, offer 2And he cried against the altar in the word of the LORD, and said, O altar, altar, thus saith the LORD; Behold, a child shall be born unto the house of David, Josiah by name; and upon thee shall he offer the priests of the high places that burn incense upon thee, and men’s bones shall be burnt upon thee. 3And he gave a sign the same day, saying, This is the sign which the LORD hath spoken; Behold, the altar shall be rent, and the ashes that are upon it shall be poured out. 4And it came to pass, when king Jeroboam heard the saying of the man of God, which had cried against the altar in Beth-el, that he put forth his hand from the altar, saying, Lay hold on him. And his hand, which he put forth against him, dried up, so that he could not pull it in again to him. 5The altar also was rent, and the ashes poured out from the altar, according to the sign which the man of God had given by the word of the LORD. 6And the king answered and said unto the man of God, Intreat now the face of the LORD thy God, and pray for me, that my hand may be restored me again. And the man of God besought the LORD, and the king’s hand was restored him again, and became as it was before.13.6 the LORD, and: Heb. the face of the LORD, etc 7And the king said unto the man of God, Come home with me, and refresh thyself, and I will give thee a reward. 8And the man of God said unto the king, If thou wilt give me half thine house, I will not go in with thee, neither will I eat bread nor drink water in this place: 9For so was it charged me by the word of the LORD, saying, Eat no bread, nor drink water, nor turn again by the same way that thou camest. 10So he went another way, and returned not by the way that he came to Beth-el.

11¶ Now there dwelt an old prophet in Beth-el; and his sons came and told him all the works that the man of God had done that day in Beth-el: the words which he had spoken unto the king, them they told also to their father. 12And their father said unto them, What way went he? For his sons had seen what way the man of God went, which came from Judah. 13And he said unto his sons, Saddle me the ass. So they saddled him the ass: and he rode thereon, 14And went after the man of God, and found him sitting under an oak: and he said unto him, Art thou the man of God that camest from Judah? And he said, I am. 15Then he said unto him, Come home with me, and eat bread. 16And he said, I may not return with thee, nor go in with thee: neither will I eat bread nor drink water with thee in this place: 17For it was said to me by the word of the LORD, Thou shalt eat no bread nor drink water there, nor turn again to go by the way that thou camest.13.17 it…: Heb. a word was 18He said unto him, I am a prophet also as thou art; and an angel spake unto me by the word of the LORD, saying, Bring him back with thee into thine house, that he may eat bread and drink water. But he lied unto him. 19So he went back with him, and did eat bread in his house, and drank water.

20¶ And it came to pass, as they sat at the table, that the word of the LORD came unto the prophet that brought him back: 21And he cried unto the man of God that came from Judah, saying, Thus saith the LORD, Forasmuch as thou hast disobeyed the mouth of the LORD, and hast not kept the commandment which the LORD thy God commanded thee, 22But camest back, and hast eaten bread and drunk water in the place, of the which the Lord did say to thee, Eat no bread, and drink no water; thy carcase shall not come unto the sepulchre of thy fathers.

23¶ And it came to pass, after he had eaten bread, and after he had drunk, that he saddled for him the ass, to wit, for the prophet whom he had brought back. 24And when he was gone, a lion met him by the way, and slew him: and his carcase was cast in the way, and the ass stood by it, the lion also stood by the carcase. 25And, behold, men passed by, and saw the carcase cast in the way, and the lion standing by the carcase: and they came and told it in the city where the old prophet dwelt. 26And when the prophet that brought him back from the way heard thereof, he said, It is the man of God, who was disobedient unto the word of the LORD: therefore the LORD hath delivered him unto the lion, which hath torn him, and slain him, according to the word of the LORD, which he spake unto him.13.26 torn: Heb. broken 27And he spake to his sons, saying, Saddle me the ass. And they saddled him. 28And he went and found his carcase cast in the way, and the ass and the lion standing by the carcase: the lion had not eaten the carcase, nor torn the ass.13.28 torn: Heb. broken 29And the prophet took up the carcase of the man of God, and laid it upon the ass, and brought it back: and the old prophet came to the city, to mourn and to bury him. 30And he laid his carcase in his own grave; and they mourned over him, saying, Alas, my brother! 31And it came to pass, after he had buried him, that he spake to his sons, saying, When I am dead, then bury me in the sepulchre wherein the man of God is buried; lay my bones beside his bones: 32For the saying which he cried by the word of the LORD against the altar in Beth-el, and against all the houses of the high places which are in the cities of Samaria, shall surely come to pass.

33¶ After this thing Jeroboam returned not from his evil way, but made again of the lowest of the people priests of the high places: whosoever would, he consecrated him, and he became one of the priests of the high places.13.33 made…: Heb. returned and made13.33 consecrated…: Heb. filled his hand 34And this thing became sin unto the house of Jeroboam, even to cut it off, and to destroy it from off the face of the earth.

Mũndũ wa Ngai Kuuma Juda

113:1 Gũcook 33:1; Amos 7:13Na rĩrĩ, mũndũ ũmwe wa Ngai nĩ oimire Juda arĩ na ndũmĩrĩri ya Ngai, agĩthiĩ Betheli, agĩkora Jeroboamu arũgamĩte kĩgongona-inĩ arute igongona. 213:2 2Ath 23:15-16, 20; Alaw 26:30Akĩanĩrĩra, agĩũkĩrĩra kĩgongona kĩu na ndũmĩrĩri ya Jehova, agĩkĩĩra atĩrĩ, “Wee kĩgongona gĩkĩ, kĩgongona gĩkĩ! Jehova ekuuga ũũ, ‘Nyũmba ya Daudi nĩgũgaciarwo kaana ga kahĩĩ, nako gageetwo Josia. Nako nĩgakaruta athĩnjĩrĩ-Ngai a gũkũ gũtũũgĩru igongona haha igũrũ rĩaku, o acio marutagĩra magongona haha, na mahĩndĩ ma andũ nĩmagacinĩrwo igũrũ rĩaku.’ ” 313:3 Kĩam 24:14; Joh 2:11Mũthenya o ro ũcio, mũndũ ũcio wa Ngai akĩheana kĩmenyithia, akiuga atĩrĩ: “Gĩkĩ nĩkĩo kĩmenyithia kĩrĩa Jehova onanĩtie: Kĩgongona nĩgĩgwatũkana, naguo mũhu ũrĩa ũrĩ igũrũ rĩakĩo ũitĩke.”

4Rĩrĩa Mũthamaki Jeroboamu aaiguire ũrĩa mũndũ ũcio wa Ngai aanĩrĩire agokĩrĩra kĩgongona kĩu kĩarĩ Betheli, agĩtambũrũkia guoko gwake arĩ kĩgongona-inĩ, akiuga atĩrĩ, “Mũnyiitei!” No rĩrĩ, guoko kũu aatambũrũkĩirie mũndũ ũcio gũkĩonja, na ndangĩahotire gũgũthuna rĩngĩ. 5Nakĩo kĩgongona kĩu gĩgĩatũkana, naguo mũhu wakĩo ũgĩitĩka, kũringana na kĩmenyithia kĩrĩa mũndũ ũcio wa Ngai aheanĩte na ũndũ wa ndũmĩrĩri ya Jehova.

613:6 Kĩam 20:7; Atũm 8:24Ningĩ mũthamaki akĩĩra mũndũ ũcio wa Ngai atĩrĩ, “Thaithanĩra harĩ Jehova Ngai waku, na ũũhooere nĩguo guoko gwakwa kũhonio.” Nĩ ũndũ ũcio, mũndũ ũcio wa Ngai agĩthaitha Jehova, nakuo guoko kwa mũthamaki gũkĩhona na gũgĩcooka o ũrĩa kwarĩ mbere.

713:7 1Sam 9:7Mũthamaki akĩĩra mũndũ ũcio wa Ngai atĩrĩ, “Ũka tũthiĩ mũciĩ ũkarĩe, na nĩngũkũhe kĩheo.”

813:8 Ndar 22:18No mũndũ ũcio wa Ngai agĩcookeria mũthamaki atĩrĩ, “O na korwo no ũhe nuthu ya indo ciaku-rĩ, niĩ ndingĩthiĩ nawe, o na ndingĩrĩa irio kana nyue maaĩ gũkũ. 9Nĩgũkorwo nĩnjathĩtwo nĩ kiugo kĩa Jehova, ngeerwo atĩrĩ, ‘Ndũkanarĩe irio, kana ũnyue maaĩ, o na kana ũcookere njĩra ĩrĩa wagereire ũgĩthiĩ.’ ” 10Nĩ ũndũ ũcio akĩgera njĩra ĩngĩ na ndaacookeire ĩrĩa aagereire agĩthiĩ Betheli.

11Na rĩrĩ, nĩ kwarĩ mũnabii mũkũrũ watũũraga Betheli, nao ariũ ake magĩũka makĩmwĩra maũndũ marĩa mothe mũndũ ũcio wa Ngai eekĩte kũu mũthenya ũcio. O na ningĩ makĩhe ithe wao ũhoro ũrĩa eerire mũthamaki. 12Ithe wao akĩmooria atĩrĩ, “Agereire njĩra ĩrĩkũ?” Nao ariũ ake makĩmuonia njĩra ĩrĩa mũndũ ũcio wa Ngai woimĩte Juda aagereire. 13Nĩ ũndũ ũcio akĩĩra ariũ ake atĩrĩ, “Ndandĩkĩrai ndigiri.” Nao marĩkia kũmũtandĩkĩra ndigiri akĩmĩikarĩra 14na akĩrũmĩrĩra mũndũ ũcio wa Ngai. Akĩmũkora aikarĩte thĩ rungu rwa mũtĩ wa mũgandi, akĩmũũria atĩrĩ, “Wee nĩwe mũndũ wa Ngai ũrĩa uumĩte Juda?”

Mũndũ ũcio wa Ngai akĩmwĩra atĩrĩ “Ĩĩ nĩ niĩ.”

15Nĩ ũndũ ũcio mũnabii ũcio mũkũrũ akĩmwĩra atĩrĩ, “Ũka tũthiĩ mũciĩ ũkarĩe.”

20Maikarĩte o metha-inĩ kiugo kĩa Jehova gĩgĩkinyĩra mũnabii ũcio mũkũrũ ũrĩa wacooketie mũnabii wa kuuma Juda na thuutha. 2113:21 1Sam 13:14Akĩanĩrĩra, akĩĩra mũndũ ũcio wa Ngai ũrĩa woimĩte Juda atĩrĩ, “Jehova ekuuga ũũ: ‘Nĩũreganĩte na kiugo kĩa Jehova, na ũkaaga kũrũmia watho ũrĩa waathirwo nĩ Jehova Ngai waku. 22No nĩũcookete na thuutha, na ũkarĩa irio na ũkanyua maaĩ kũndũ kũrĩa aakwĩrire ndũkaarĩe na ndũkanyue kĩndũ kuo.
