25 People came by and saw the body lying in the road and the lion standing beside it, and they went and reported it in Bethel, where the old prophet lived.
26 When the old prophet heard the report, he said, "It is the man of God who disobeyed the LORD's command. The LORD has fulfilled his word by causing the lion to attack and kill him."
27 Then the prophet said to his sons, "Saddle a donkey for me." So they saddled a donkey,
28 and he went out and found the body lying in the road. The donkey and lion were still standing there beside it, for the lion had not eaten the body nor attacked the donkey.
29 So the prophet laid the body of the man of God on the donkey and took it back to the city to mourn over him and bury him.
30 He laid the body in his own grave, crying out in grief, "Oh, my brother!"
31 Afterward the prophet said to his sons, "When I die, bury me in the grave where the man of God is buried. Lay my bones beside his bones.
32 For the message the LORD told him to proclaim against the altar in Bethel and against the pagan shrines in the towns of Samaria will surely come true."
33 But even after this, Jeroboam did not turn from his evil ways. He continued to choose priests from the rank and file of the people. Anyone who wanted to could become a priest for the pagan shrines.
34 This became a great sin and resulted in the destruction of Jeroboam's kingdom and the death of all his family.
