Solely a forerunner of prophets, he was one of the first to address the sins and transgressions of the ten tribes to the North (those who broke away from Jerusalem and their brothers, Judah and Benjamin). The ten tribes wanted their own kingdom. They wanted no more of the restraints of David or the majesty of Solomon. They wanted to ordain their own priesthood and worship in their "new" way. They despised the restrictions of the Law and sought freedom to "worship any way they pleased." They chose new gods they thought would guarantee their continued prosperity. They luxuriated in the fabric of wealth and found no boundaries for their insatiable lusts for power and glory.
