12:31 He built temples 4 on the high places and appointed as priests people who were not Levites. 12:32 Jeroboam inaugurated a festival on the fifteenth day of the eighth month, 5 like the festival celebrated in Judah. 6 On the altar in Bethel he offered sacrifices to the calves he had made. 7 In Bethel he also appointed priests for the high places he had made.
