Jeroboam and all the people came to Rehoboam the third day...and the  
king answered the people harshly,saying "My father made your yoke  
heavy, but I will add to your yoke"...And when all Israel saw that the  
king did not harken to them, the people answered the king,
		"What portion have we in David?
		 We have no inheritance in the son of Jesse.
		 To your tents, O Israel!"
