This prophet lived when Jeroboam was king of the Hebrews. During that time when his child was sick, he told his wife to go where Achias stayed to ask about her child's health after disguising herself in different garments. But when she was about to enter the house of [Ahijah] who had diminished vision because of his age, God appeared to him and announced both things: that she was the wife of Jeroboam and what he was going to say to her. And as she was walking by like a stranger, he shouted, "come in, woman, why do you conceal yourself? For you cannot hide from God. Go back to your husband; thus says the Lord: since I made you big from something small and insignificant, and I split the kingdom off from the family of David and gave it to you, but you forgot all these things and abandoned my worship -- you form gods of molten metal and honor them -- I will sweep you back out and lay waste to your entire family, and I will turn you into food for dogs and birds. Part of my vengeance will be upon the people, who will be banished from the good land and scattered into the regions beyond the Euphrates, because they followed your impieties. And you will find your son dead." And this is just what happened.
