                            In particular:

              Despotism; enormous expenditure; enforcement of compulsory labor.

 

                                          Sensual life; multiplication of wives and concubines, hence

 

                                          Idolatry admitted, practised.

 

             

 

              2. Signs:

              2. Its Consequences:

              Mutual rivalry of Juda and Ephraim.

 

                            Religious separation.

 

                            Greater weakness against more formidable invasions.
