He will sacrifice on you the priests of the high places who offer sacrifices on you. Human bones will be burned on you.'" 3 That day he also announced a sign, "This is the sign the Lord has predetermined: The altar will be split open and the ashes on it will fall to the ground." 4 When the king heard what the prophet cried out against the altar in Bethel, Jeroboam, standing at the altar, extended his hand and ordered, "Seize him!"
