2 Chronicles 10:6-8

6Then King Rehoboam took counsel with the old men,
Or  the elders; also verses 8, 13
who had stood before Solomon his father while he was yet alive, saying, “How do you advise me to answer this people?”
7And they said to him, bIf you will be good to this people and please them and speak good words to them, then they will be your servants forever.” 8But he abandoned the counsel that the old men gave him, and took counsel with the young men who had grown up with him and stood before him.
