1 ነገሥት 14:1-31

አኪያ በኢዮርብዓም ላይ የተናገረው ትንቢት

1በዚያን ጊዜ የኢዮርብዓም ልጅ አብያ ታመመ፤ 2ኢዮርብዓም ሚስቱን እንዲህ አላት፤ “ተነሺ፣ የኢዮርብዓም ሚስት መሆንሽ እንዳይታወቅብሽ ሆነሽ፣ ወደ ሴሎ ሂጂ፤ በዚህ ሕዝብ ላይ እንደምነግሥ የነገረኝ ነቢይ አኪያ እነሆ፤ በዚያ ይገኛል። 3ስትሄጂም ዐሥር እንጀራ፣ ጥቂት ሙልሙል ዳቦ እና አንድ እንስራ ማር ይዘሽ ሂጂ፤ እርሱም በልጁ ላይ የሚደርሰውን ይነግርሻል።” 4ስለዚህ የኢዮርብዓም ሚስት ያላትን አድርጋ በሴሎ ወደሚገኘው ወደ አኪያ ቤት ሄደች።

በዚህ ጊዜ አኪያ ከማርጀቱ የተነሣ ዐይኖቹ ፈዘው ነበር። 5እግዚአብሔር ግን ለአኪያ፣ “እነሆ፤ የኢዮርብዓም ሚስት ስለ ታመመው ልጇ ልትጠይቅህ ሌላ ሴት መስላ ትመጣለችና እንዲህ ብለህ መልሳት” ብሎ ነገረው።

6አኪያም የእግሯን ኮቴ ድምፅ እበሩ ላይ እንደ ሰማ እንዲህ አላት፤ “የኢዮርብዓም ሚስት ሆይ ግቢ፤ ግን ለምንድን ነው ሌላ ሴት መስለሽ ለመታየት የፈለግሽው? ለአንቺ ከባድ ነገር እንድነግርሽ ተልኬአለሁ። 7አሁንም ሂጂና ኢዮርብዓምን የእስራኤል አምላክ እግዚአብሔር የሚለው ይህ ነው ብለሽ ንገሪው፤ ‘ከሕዝቡ መካከል አንሥቼ የሕዝቤ የእስራኤል መሪ አደረግሁህ፤ 8ከዳዊት ቤት መንግሥቱን ቀድጄ ለአንተ ሰጠሁህ፤ አንተ ግን በፊቴ መልካም ነገር በማድረግ ብቻ ትእዛዜን እንደ ጠበቀው፣ በፍጹም ልቡም እንደ ተከተለኝ እንደ ባሪያዬ እንደ ዳዊት አልሆንህም። 9ከአንተ በፊት ከነበሩት ሁሉ ይልቅ አንተ የከፋ ሥራ ሠራህ፤ ለራስህም ከቀለጠ ብረት ሌሎች አማልክትን ሠራህ፤ ቊጣዬን አነሣሣህ፤ ወደ ኋላህም ጣልኸኝ።

10“ ‘ስለዚህ እኔም በኢዮርብዓም ቤት ላይ ጥፋትን አመጣለሁ፤ ባሪያም ይሁን ነጻ ዜጋ የኢዮርብዓምን ወንድ ልጅ ሁሉ ከእስራኤል አስወግዳለሁ፤ ኩበትም ዐመድ እስኪሆን ድረስ እንደሚቃጠል፣ እኔም የኢዮርብዓምን ቤት እንዲሁ አቃጥላለሁ። 11ከኢዮርብዓም ወገን በከተማ የሞተውን ውሾች፣ በባላገር የሞተውን ደግሞ የሰማይ አሞሮች ይበሉታል፤ እግዚአብሔር ተናግሮአልና!’

12“እንግዲህ አንቺም ወደ ቤትሽ ሂጂ፤ የምትኖሪበትን ከተማ እግርሽ እንደ ረገጠ፣ ልጁ ይሞታል፤ 13እስራኤልም ሁሉ አልቅሰው ይቀብሩታል። የእስራኤል አምላክ እግዚአብሔር ከኢዮርብዓም ቤት ሁሉ መልካም ነገር ያገኘበት እርሱ ብቻ ስለ ሆነ፣ በወግ በማዕረግ የሚቀበር እርሱ ብቻ ነው።

14“ከዚህም በላይ፣ እግዚአብሔር የኢዮርብዓምን ቤተ ሰብ የሚያስወግድ ንጉሥ በእስራኤል ላይ ለራሱ ያስነሣል፤ ይህም ዛሬ፣ አሁኑኑ ይሆናል።14፥14 በዕብራይስጡ የዚህ ዐረፍተ ነገር ትርጒም በትክክል አይታወቅም 15እግዚአብሔር እስራኤልን በውሃ ውስጥ እንደሚንቀጠቀጥ ሸንበቆ ያንቀጠቅጠዋል፤ የአሼራን ምስል ዐምድ14፥15 በዚህም ሆነ በሌሎቹም የመጽሐፈ ነገሥት ቀዳማዊ ክፍሎች፣ የአሼራ ጣዖት አምላክ ምስል ነው በመሥራት እግዚአብሔርን ለቊጣ ያነሣሡት ስለ ሆነ፣ እግዚአብሔር ለቀድሞ አባቶቻቸው ከሰጣቸው ከዚህች ከመልካሚቱ ምድር እስራኤልን ይነቅላቸዋል፤ ከወንዙም ማዶ14፥15 የኤፍራጥስ ወንዝ ነው ይበትናቸዋል። 16ኢዮርብዓም ኀጢአት ሠርቶ፣ እስራኤልንም እንዲሠሩ በማድረጉ፣ እግዚአብሔር እስራኤልን ይተዋቸዋል።

17የኢዮርብዓም ሚስትም ተነሥታ ወደ ቴርሳ ሄደች፤ የቤቱን መድረክ ወዲያው እንደ ተራመደች ልጁ ሞተ፤ 18ከዚያም ቀበሩት፤ እግዚአብሔር በባሪያው በአኪያ አማካይነት እንደ ተናገረ፣ እስራኤል ሁሉ አለቀሱለት።

19የቀረው የኢዮርብዓም ታሪክ፣ ያደረገው ጦርነትና አገዛዙም ሁሉ በእስራኤል ነገሥታት ታሪክ ተጽፎአል። 20እርሱም ሃያ ሁለት ዓመት ነግሦ ከአባቶቹ ጋር አንቀላፋ፤ ልጁ ናዳብም በእግሩ ተተክቶ ነገሠ።

የይሁዳ ንጉሥ ሮብዓም

14፥21፡25-31 ተጓ ምብ – 2ዜና 12፥9-16

21የሰሎሞን ልጅ ሮብዓም በይሁዳ ነገሠ፤ በነገሠም ጊዜ ዕድሜው አርባ አንድ ዓመት ነበር፤ እርሱም እግዚአብሔር ለስሙ መጠሪያ እንድትሆን ከእስራኤል ነገድ ሁሉ በመረጣት በኢየሩሳሌም ዐሥራ ሰባት ዓመት ገዛ። እናቱ ናዕማ የተባለች አሞናዊት ነበረች።

22ይሁዳ በእግዚአብሔር ፊት ክፉ ነገር አደረገ፤ ከአባቶቻቸው ይልቅ እነርሱ በሠሩት ኀጢአት ይበልጥ የቅናት ቊጣውን አነሣሡ፤ 23እንዲሁም በእያንዳንዱ ኰረብታና በየትልልቁ ዛፍ ጥላ ሥር የማምለኪያ ኰረብቶችን አዕማደ ጣዖታት፣ የአሼራን ምስል ዐምድ ለራሳቸው አቆሙ። 24ከዚያም ይልቅ፣ የቤተ ጣዖት ወንደቃዎች በምድሪቱ ላይ ነበሩ፤ እግዚአብሔር ከእስራኤላውያን ፊት አሳዶ ያስወጣቸው አሕዛብ የፈጸሙትን አስጸያፊ ድርጊት ሁሉ እነዚህም ፈጸሙ።

25ሮብዓም በነገሠ በአምስተኛው ዓመት የግብፅ ንጉሥ ሺሻቅ በኢየሩሳሌም ላይ አደጋ ጣለ፤ 26የእግዚአብሔርን ቤተ መቅደስና የቤተ መንግሥቱን ሀብት ወሰደ፤ ሰሎሞን ያሠራቸው የወርቅ ጋሻዎች እንኳን ሳይቀሩ ሁሉንም ነገር አጋዘ። 27ስለዚህ ንጉሥ ሮብዓም እነዚህን ለመተካት ሲል፣ የናስ ጋሻዎች አሠርቶ የቤተ መንግሥቱን በር የሚጠብቁት ዘበኞች አዛዦች እንዲይዙ አደረገ። 28ንጉሡ ወደ እግዚአብሔር ቤተ መቅደስ በሚሄድበት ጊዜ ሁሉ፣ ዘቦቹ ጋሻዎቹን ያነግባሉ፤ ከዚያም በዘብ ጥበቃው ክፍል መልሰው ያስቀምጡ ነበር።

29የቀረው የሮብዓም አገዛዝ፣ ያደረገውም ሁሉ በይሁዳ ነገሥታት ታሪክ ተጽፎ የሚገኝ አይደለምን? 30በሮብዓምና በኢዮርብዓም መካከል ያላቋረጠ ጦርነት ተደርጎ ነበር። 31ሮብዓምም ከአባቶቹ ጋር አንቀላፋ፤ እነርሱ በተቀበሩበትም በዳዊት ከተማ ተቀበረ። እናቱ ናዓማ የተባለች አሞናዊት ነበረች። ልጁ አብያም14፥31 አንዳንድ የዕብራይስጥና የሰብዓ ሊቃናት ትርጒሞች ከዚህ ጋር ይስማማሉ፤ አብዛኞቹ የዕብራይስጥ ትርጒሞች ግን፣ አቢጃም ይላሉ በእግሩ ተተክቶ ነገሠ።

King James Version

1 Kings 14:1-31

1At that time Abijah the son of Jeroboam fell sick. 2And Jeroboam said to his wife, Arise, I pray thee, and disguise thyself, that thou be not known to be the wife of Jeroboam; and get thee to Shiloh: behold, there is Ahijah the prophet, which told me that I should be king over this people. 3And take with thee ten loaves, and cracknels, and a cruse of honey, and go to him: he shall tell thee what shall become of the child.14.3 with…: Heb. in thine hand14.3 cracknels: or, cakes14.3 cruse: or, bottle 4And Jeroboam’s wife did so, and arose, and went to Shiloh, and came to the house of Ahijah. But Ahijah could not see; for his eyes were set by reason of his age.14.4 were…: Heb. stood for his hoariness

5¶ And the LORD said unto Ahijah, Behold, the wife of Jeroboam cometh to ask a thing of thee for her son; for he is sick: thus and thus shalt thou say unto her: for it shall be, when she cometh in, that she shall feign herself to be another woman. 6And it was so, when Ahijah heard the sound of her feet, as she came in at the door, that he said, Come in, thou wife of Jeroboam; why feignest thou thyself to be another? for I am sent to thee with heavy tidings.14.6 heavy: Heb. hard

7Go, tell Jeroboam, Thus saith the LORD God of Israel, Forasmuch as I exalted thee from among the people, and made thee prince over my people Israel, 8And rent the kingdom away from the house of David, and gave it thee: and yet thou hast 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 mine eyes; 9But hast done evil above all that were before thee: for thou hast gone and made thee other gods, and molten images, to provoke me to anger, and hast cast me behind thy back: 10Therefore, behold, I will bring evil upon the house of Jeroboam, and will cut off from Jeroboam him that pisseth against the wall, and him that is shut up and left in Israel, and will take away the remnant of the house of Jeroboam, as a man taketh away dung, till it be all gone. 11Him that dieth of Jeroboam in the city shall the dogs eat; and him that dieth in the field shall the fowls of the air eat: for the LORD hath spoken it. 12Arise thou therefore, get thee to thine own house: and when thy feet enter into the city, the child shall die. 13And all Israel shall mourn for him, and bury him: for he only of Jeroboam shall come to the grave, because in him there is found some good thing toward the LORD God of Israel in the house of Jeroboam. 14Moreover the LORD shall raise him up a king over Israel, who shall cut off the house of Jeroboam that day: but what? even now. 15For the LORD shall smite Israel, as a reed is shaken in the water, and he shall root up Israel out of this good land, which he gave to their fathers, and shall scatter them beyond the river, because they have made their groves, provoking the LORD to anger. 16And he shall give Israel up because of the sins of Jeroboam, who did sin, and who made Israel to sin.

17¶ And Jeroboam’s wife arose, and departed, and came to Tirzah: and when she came to the threshold of the door, the child died; 18And they buried him; and all Israel mourned for him, according to the word of the LORD, which he spake by the hand of his servant Ahijah the prophet. 19And the rest of the acts of Jeroboam, how he warred, and how he reigned, behold, they are written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Israel. 20And the days which Jeroboam reigned were two and twenty years: and he slept with his fathers, and Nadab his son reigned in his stead.14.20 slept: Heb. lay down

21¶ And Rehoboam the son of Solomon reigned in Judah. Rehoboam was forty and one years old when he began to reign, and he reigned seventeen years in Jerusalem, the city which the LORD did choose out of all the tribes of Israel, to put his name there. And his mother’s name was Naamah an Ammonitess. 22And Judah did evil in the sight of the LORD, and they provoked him to jealousy with their sins which they had committed, above all that their fathers had done. 23For they also built them high places, and images, and groves, on every high hill, and under every green tree.14.23 images: or, standing images, or, statues 24And there were also sodomites in the land: and they did according to all the abominations of the nations which the LORD cast out before the children of Israel.

25¶ And it came to pass in the fifth year of king Rehoboam, that Shishak king of Egypt came up against Jerusalem: 26And he took away the treasures of the house of the LORD, and the treasures of the king’s house; he even took away all: and he took away all the shields of gold which Solomon had made. 27And king Rehoboam made in their stead brasen shields, and committed them unto the hands of the chief of the guard, which kept the door of the king’s house.14.27 guard: Heb. runners 28And it was so, when the king went into the house of the LORD, that the guard bare them, and brought them back into the guard chamber.

29¶ Now the rest of the acts of Rehoboam, and all that he did, are they not written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Judah? 30And there was war between Rehoboam and Jeroboam all their days. 31And Rehoboam slept with his fathers, and was buried with his fathers in the city of David. And his mother’s name was Naamah an Ammonitess. And Abijam his son reigned in his stead.14.31 Abijam: also called, Abijah: Gr. Abia
