And you will be King over Israel

Ahijah: And you shall reign according to all that your soul desires, and shall be king over Israel. If you will listen to all that I command you, and will walk in my ways, and do that which is right in my eyes, I will be with you, and will build you a sure house, as I built for David. I will afflict the offspring of David for this, but not forever. Jeroboam: King! Wait until my wife hears THIS!

1 Kings 11: 37 – 39
