1 Kings 13:31

13:31 lay my bones beside his bones. The old prophet identifies himself with the prophecy of the man from Judah by having himself buried in the same tomb. When Josiah later desecrates the Bethel altar, he does not disturb the bones out of respect for the prophet from Judah (2 Kin. 23:17, 18).
