1 Kings 12:28-29 Amplified Bible (AMP)

28 So the king took counsel [and followed bad advice] and made two [a]calves of gold. And he said to the people, “It is too much for you to go [all the way] up to Jerusalem; behold your gods, O Israel, who brought you up out of the land of Egypt.” 29 He set the one [golden calf] in Bethel, and the other he put in [b]Dan.

Footnotes:

  1. 1 Kings 12:28 Cf the incident of the golden calf in the wilderness, and see note Ex 32:4. Jeroboam evidently was convinced that the Israelites would respond to calf idols just as their ancestors had (despite the consequences), and unfortunately he was right.
  2. 1 Kings 12:29 Northernmost city in Jeroboam’s kingdom.
