1 Kings 13:1

And, behold, there came a man of God out of Judah
Whom Josephus F24 calls Jadon, perhaps the same with Iddo, who is by the Jewish writers F25 generally thought to be this man of God, and which may seem to be countenanced by (2 Chronicles 9:29) but cannot be, because this man was quickly slain, whereas Iddo lived after Rehoboam, and wrote his acts, first and last, nay, after Ahijah his son, (2 Chronicles 13:22) and for the same reason Shemaiah cannot be the man of God, (1 Kings 12:22) , though Tertullian F26 calls him Sameas, and designs Shemaiah: but, whoever he was, he came

by the word of the Lord to Bethel:
that is, by his command:

and Jeroboam stood by the altar to burn incense;
at the time he came, (1 Kings 12:33) .
