Judgment For Jeroboam Continues

3 Take ten loaves with you, some cakes, and a jar of honey and go visit him. He will tell you what will happen to the boy." 4 So that's what Jeroboam's wife did. She got up, went to Shiloh, and found Ahijah's home. Ahijah was blind, because his eyes could not focus due to his age. 5 Meanwhile, the LORD had spoken to Ahijah, "Be on your guard! Jeroboam's wife is coming to ask you about her son, because he is ill. You're to say such and such to her. When she arrives, she will pretend to be someone else!"
