1 Kings 12:26-3126And Jeroboam said in his heart, “Now the kingdom will turn back to the house of David. 27If this people a go up to offer sacrifices in the temple of the Lord at Jerusalem, then the heart of this people will turn again to their lord, to Rehoboam king of Judah, and they will kill me and return to Rehoboam king of Judah.” 28So the king took counsel and b made two calves of gold. And he said to the people, “You have gone up to Jerusalem long enough. c Behold your gods, O Israel, who brought you up out of the land of Egypt.” 29And he set one in Bethel, and the other he put in Dan. 30Then d this thing became a sin, for the people went as far as Dan to be before one. ▼
▼Septuagint went to the one at Bethel and to the other as far as Dan31He also made f temples on high places and g appointed priests from among all the people, who were not of the Levites.
