Context Readings

Jeroboam Continues In His Sin

32 for the word certainly cometh to pass that he called by the word of Jehovah concerning the altar which is Beth-El, and concerning all the houses of the high places that are in cities of Samaria.' 33 After this thing Jeroboam hath not turned from his evil way, and turneth back, and maketh of the extremities of the people priests of high places; he who is desirous he consecrateth his hand, and he is of the priests of the high places. 34 And in this thing is the sin of the house of Jeroboam, even to cut it off, and to destroy it from off the face of the ground.
