Today's Christian Clipart: Rehoboam answers Jeroboam and Israel harshly

Rehoboam answers Jeroboam and Israel harshly
1 Kings 12:13-15, 2 Chronicles 10:13-15

And the king answered the people roughly, and forsook the old men's counsel that they gave him;
And spake to them after the counsel of the young men, saying, My father made your yoke heavy, and I will add to your yoke: my father also chastised you with whips, but I will chastise you with scorpions.
Wherefore the king hearkened not unto the people; for the cause was from the Lord, that he might perform his saying, which the Lord spake by Ahijah the Shilonite unto Jeroboam the son of Nebat.
