Translated headword: Jeroboam
Vetting Status: high
When this man built a palace in the city of Shechem, he lived in it; he also built [a palace] in the city called Phanouel. Not much later when the festival of tabernacles was about to take place, he considered that if he allowed the multitude to travel to Jerusalem to worship God and to spend the festival there, repenting and being captivated by the Temple and the service of God in it, they might abandon him and go over to the first king and [he] might risk (if this happened) losing his life: so he devised a scheme of this kind. Making two golden heifers and building shrines for each of them, one in the city of Bethel, the other in Dan (which is by the springs of the little Jordan), he set the heifers in each of the shrines in the cities and exhorted them to sacrifice to these.
Greek Original:
Ἱεροβοάμ: οὗτος κατασκευάσας βασίλειον ἐν Σικίμῳ πόλει ἐν ταύτῃ τὴν δίαιταν ἔσχε, κατεσκεύασε δὲ καὶ ἐν Φανουὴλ πόλει λεγομένῃ. μετ' οὐ πολὺ δὲ τῆς σκηνοπηγίας ἑορτῆς ἐνίστασθαι μελλούσης, λογισάμενος, ὡς, ἐὰν ἐπιστρέψῃ τῷ πλήθει προσκυνῆσαι τὸν θεὸν εἰς Ἱεροσόλυμα πορευθέντι καὶ ἐκεῖ τὴν ἑορτὴν διαγαγεῖν, μετανοῆσαν ἴσως καὶ δελεασθὲν ὑπὸ τοῦ ναοῦ καὶ τῆς θρησκείας τῆς ἐν αὐτῷ τοῦ θεοῦ, καταλείψει μὲν αὐτόν, προσχωρήσει δὲ τῷ πρώτῳ βασιλεῖ καὶ κινδυνεύσει τούτου γενομένου τὴν ψυχὴν ἀποβαλεῖν, ἐπιτεχνᾶταί τι τοιοῦτον. δύο ποιήσας δαμάλεις χρυσᾶς καὶ οἰκοδομήσας ναί̈σκους τοσούτους, ἕνα μὲν ἐν Βεθὴλ πόλει, τὸν δὲ ἕτερον ἐν Δάμῃ [ἥ ἐστι πρὸς ταῖς πηγαῖς τοῦ μικροῦ Ἰορδάνου], τίθησι τὰς δαμάλεις ἐν ἑκατέρῳ τῶν ἐν ταῖς πόλεσι ναί̈σκων καὶ παραινεῖ αὐτοὺς θῦσαι ταύταις.
