Getting Advice

Narrator; That night in council. Rehoboam: What counsel do you give me to answer these people? Old counsellor: If you will be a servant to this people today, and will serve them, and answer them with good words, then they will be your servants forever. Rehoboam: Hmmm. Later, a voice in the garden: Long life to you, oh King of Israel - at last! Rehoboam: Mesha! How are you! It's been so long! Glad you're here. In fact, I could use your wits on a little problem I'm working on. Mesha: The Israel Assembly? Rehoboam: You heard? Mesha; of course.
