10 then there will be no new god among you, nor will you adore a foreign god.
11 For I am the Lord your God, who led you out of the land of Egypt. Widen your mouth, and I will fill it.
12 But my people did not hear my voice, and Israel was not attentive to me.
13 And so, I sent them away, according to the desires of their heart. They will go forth according to their own inventions.
14 If my people had heard me, if Israel had walked in my ways,
15 I would have humbled their enemies, as if it were nothing, and I would have sent my hand upon those who troubled them.
1 Kings 11:29-32; 12:19
29 And it happened, in that time, that Jeroboam departed from Jerusalem. And the prophet Ahijah, the Shilonite, wearing with a new cloak, found him on the way. And the two were alone in the field.

31 And he said to Jeroboam: "Take ten pieces for yourself. For thus says the Lord, the God of Israel: 'Behold, I will tear the kingdom from the hand of Solomon, and I will give to you ten tribes.
32 Yet one tribe shall remain with him, for the sake of my servant, David, as well as Jerusalem, the city which I have chosen out of all the tribes of Israel.
19 And Israel drew away from the house of David, even to the present day.
