1 Kings 13: 33 - 34
33 After this thing Jerobo'am did not turn from his evil way, but made priests for the high places again from among all the people; any who would, he consecrated to be priests of the high places.
34 And this thing became sin to the house of Jerobo'am, so as to cut it off and to destroy it from the face of the earth.
