At the Gravesite

Narrator: He laid his body in his own grave, and they mourned over him. Old prophet: Alas, my brother. Boys, when I am dead, bury me in the tomb in which the man of God is buried. Oldest boy: What does it all mean, father? Old prophet: For the saying which he cried by the Lord's word against the altar at Bethel will surely happen. Jeroboam will rue the day. Understand this. This is a man, sent by God, chosen by God. He does what he's supposed to, but then he listens to the lies of others.

1 Kings 13: 30 – 31
