What did Ahijah do in the Bible

Even though Ahijah was born in Egypt and was a student of Moses, he is only introduced in the Bible as a prophet in the times of King Solomon (as such, he lived a very long time). He prophesied about the split of the tribes of Israel into two kingdoms – the Northern and Southern kingdoms. Later, he prophesied that Jeroboam’s family would be completely destroyed, and that the tribes of the Northern Kingdom would eventually be exiled. At the end of his extremely long life, Ahijah was the teacher of Elijah the Prophet.
