He also expanded from there and built Penuel. 26 Jeroboam was thinking to himself, "The kingdom is about to return to David's control. 27 If these people keep going up to Jerusalem to offer sacrifices to the LORD there, the hearts of these people will return to their lord, King Rehoboam of Judah. Then they'll kill me and return to Rehoboam, king of Judah!"
