Rehoboam Reigns In Judah

22 And Judah did the thing that was wicked in the eyes of Yahweh, - and provoked him to jealousy, above all that their fathers had done, with their sins which they committed. 23 And, they also, built for themselves high places and pillars, and Sacred Stems, - upon every high hill, and under every green tree. 24 Moreover also, there were, male devotees, in the land, - they did according to all the abominable practices of the nations, which Yahweh dispossessed from before the sons of Israel.
