1 Kings 22

And they continued
<03427> (8799)
three
<07969>
years
<08141>
without war
<04421>
between Syria
<0758>
and Israel
<03478>_.
And it came to pass in the third
<07992>
year
<08141>_,
that Jehoshaphat
<03092>
the king
<04428>
of Judah
<03063>
came down
<03381> (8799)
to the king
<04428>
of Israel
<03478>_.
And the king
<04428>
of Israel
<03478>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto his servants
<05650>_,
Know
<03045> (8804)
ye that Ramoth
<07433>
in Gilead
<01568>
[is] ours, and we [be] still
<02814> (8688)_,
[and] take
<03947> (8800)
it not out of the hand
<03027>
of the king
<04428>
of Syria
<0758>_?
{still...: Heb. silent from taking it}
And he said
<0559> (8799)
unto Jehoshaphat
<03092>_,
Wilt thou go
<03212> (8799)
with me to battle
<04421>
to Ramothgilead
<07433> <01568>_?
And Jehoshaphat
<03092>
said
<0559> (8799)
to the king
<04428>
of Israel
<03478>_,
I [am] as thou
<03644>
[art], my people
<05971>
as thy people
<05971>_,
my horses
<05483>
as thy horses
<05483>_.
And Jehoshaphat
<03092>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto the king
<04428>
of Israel
<03478>_,
Enquire
<01875> (8798)_,
I pray thee, at the word
<01697>
of the LORD
<03068>
to day
<03117>_.
Then the king
<04428>
of Israel
<03478>
gathered
<06908> (0)
the prophets
<05030>
together
<06908> (8799)_,
about four
<0702>
hundred
<03967>
men
<0376>_,
and said
<0559> (8799)
unto them, Shall I go
<03212> (8799)
against Ramothgilead
<07433> <01568>
to battle
<04421>_,
or shall I forbear
<02308> (8799)_?
And they said
<0559> (8799)_,
Go up
<05927> (8798)_;
for the Lord
<0136>
shall deliver
<05414> (8799)
[it] into the hand
<03027>
of the king
<04428>_.
And Jehoshaphat
<03092>
said
<0559> (8799)_,
[Is there] not here a prophet
<05030>
of the LORD
<03068>
besides
<05750>_,
that we might enquire
<01875> (8799)
of him?
And the king
<04428>
of Israel
<03478>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto Jehoshaphat
<03092>_,
[There is] yet one
<0259>
man
<0376>_,
Micaiah
<04321>
the son
<01121>
of Imlah
<03229>_,
by whom we may enquire
<01875> (8800)
of the LORD
<03068>_:
but I hate
<08130> (8804)
him; for he doth not prophesy
<05012> (8691)
good
<02896>
concerning me, but evil
<07451>_.
And Jehoshaphat
<03092>
said
<0559> (8799)_,
Let not the king
<04428>
say
<0559> (8799)
so.
Then the king
<04428>
of Israel
<03478>
called
<07121> (8799)
an
<0259>
officer
<05631>_,
and said
<0559> (8799)_,
Hasten
<04116> (8761)
[hither] Micaiah
<04321>
the son
<01121>
of Imlah
<03229>_.
{officer: or, eunuch}
And the king
<04428>
of Israel
<03478>
and Jehoshaphat
<03092>
the king
<04428>
of Judah
<03063>
sat
<03427> (8802)
each
<0376>
on his throne
<03678>_,
having put on
<03847> (8794)
their robes
<0899>_,
in a void place
<01637>
in the entrance
<06607>
of the gate
<08179>
of Samaria
<08111>_;
and all the prophets
<05030>
prophesied
<05012> (8693)
before
<06440>
them. {void...: Heb. floor}
And Zedekiah
<06667>
the son
<01121>
of Chenaanah
<03668>
made
<06213> (8799)
him horns
<07161>
of iron
<01270>_:
and he said
<0559> (8799)_,
Thus saith
<0559> (8804)
the LORD
<03068>_,
With these shalt thou push
<05055> (8762)
the Syrians
<0758>_,
until thou have consumed
<03615> (8763)
them.
And all the prophets
<05030>
prophesied
<05012> (8737)
so, saying
<0559> (8800)_,
Go up
<05927> (8798)
to Ramothgilead
<07433> <01568>_,
and prosper
<06743> (8685)_:
for the LORD
<03068>
shall deliver
<05414> (8804)
[it] into the king's
<04428>
hand
<03027>_.
And the messenger
<04397>
that was gone
<01980> (8804)
to call
<07121> (8800)
Micaiah
<04321>
spake
<01696> (8765)
unto him, saying
<0559> (8800)_,
Behold now, the words
<01697>
of the prophets
<05030>
[declare] good
<02896>
unto the king
<04428>
with one
<0259>
mouth
<06310>_:
let thy word
<01697>_,
I pray thee, be like the word
<01697>
of one
<0259>
of them, and speak
<01696> (8765)
[that which is] good
<02896>_.
And Micaiah
<04321>
said
<0559> (8799)_,
[As] the LORD
<03068>
liveth
<02416>_,
what the LORD
<03068>
saith
<0559> (8799)
unto me, that will I speak
<01696> (8762)_.
So he came
<0935> (8799)
to the king
<04428>_.
And the king
<04428>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto him, Micaiah
<04321>_,
shall we go
<03212> (8799)
against Ramothgilead
<07433> <01568>
to battle
<04421>_,
or shall we forbear
<02308> (8799)_?
And he answered
<0559> (8799)
him, Go
<05927> (8798)_,
and prosper
<06743> (8685)_:
for the LORD
<03068>
shall deliver
<05414> (8804)
[it] into the hand
<03027>
of the king
<04428>_.
And the king
<04428>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto him, How many times
<06471>
shall I adjure
<07650> (8688)
thee that thou tell
<01696> (8762)
me nothing but [that which is] true
<0571>
in the name
<08034>
of the LORD
<03068>_?
And he said
<0559> (8799)_,
I saw
<07200> (8804)
all Israel
<03478>
scattered
<06327> (8737)
upon the hills
<02022>_,
as sheep
<06629>
that have not a shepherd
<07462> (8802)_:
and the LORD
<03068>
said
<0559> (8799)_,
These have no master
<0113>_:
let them return
<07725> (8799)
every man
<0376>
to his house
<01004>
in peace
<07965>_.
And the king
<04428>
of Israel
<03478>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto Jehoshaphat
<03092>_,
Did I not tell
<0559> (8804)
thee that he would prophesy
<05012> (8691)
no good
<02896>
concerning me, but evil
<07451>_?
And he said
<0559> (8799)_,
Hear
<08085> (8798)
thou therefore the word
<01697>
of the LORD
<03068>_:
I saw
<07200> (8804)
the LORD
<03068>
sitting
<03427> (8802)
on his throne
<03678>_,
and all the host
<06635>
of heaven
<08064>
standing
<05975> (8802)
by him on his right hand
<03225>
and on his left
<08040>_.
And the LORD
<03068>
said
<0559> (8799)_,
Who shall persuade
<06601> (8762)
Ahab
<0256>_,
that he may go up
<05927> (8799)
and fall
<05307> (8799)
at Ramothgilead
<07433> <01568>_?
And one said
<0559> (8799)
on this manner
<03541>_,
and another said
<0559> (8802)
on that manner
<03541>_.
{persuade: or, deceive}
And there came forth
<03318> (8799)
a spirit
<07307>_,
and stood
<05975> (8799)
before
<06440>
the LORD
<03068>_,
and said
<0559> (8799)_,
I will persuade
<06601> (8762)
him.
And the LORD
<03068>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto him, Wherewith? And he said
<0559> (8799)_,
I will go forth
<03318> (8799)_,
and I will be a lying
<08267>
spirit
<07307>
in the mouth
<06310>
of all his prophets
<05030>_.
And he said
<0559> (8799)_,
Thou shalt persuade
<06601> (8762)
[him], and prevail
<03201> (8799)
also: go forth
<03318> (8798)_,
and do
<06213> (8798)
so.
Now therefore, behold, the LORD
<03068>
hath put
<05414> (8804)
a lying
<08267>
spirit
<07307>
in the mouth
<06310>
of all these thy prophets
<05030>_,
and the LORD
<03068>
hath spoken
<01696> (8765)
evil
<07451>
concerning thee.
But Zedekiah
<06667>
the son
<01121>
of Chenaanah
<03668>
went near
<05066> (8799)_,
and smote
<05221> (8686)
Micaiah
<04321>
on the cheek
<03895>_,
and said
<0559> (8799)_,
Which way
<0335>
went
<05674> (8804)
the Spirit
<07307>
of the LORD
<03068>
from me to speak
<01696> (8763)
unto thee?
And Micaiah
<04321>
said
<0559> (8799)_,
Behold, thou shalt see
<07200> (8802)
in that day
<03117>_,
when thou shalt go
<0935> (8799)
into an inner
<02315>
chamber
<02315>
to hide
<02247> (8736)
thyself. {into...: or, from chamber to chamber: Heb. a chamber in a chamber}
And the king
<04428>
of Israel
<03478>
said
<0559> (8799)_,
Take
<03947> (8798)
Micaiah
<04321>_,
and carry him back
<07725> (8685)
unto Amon
<0526>
the governor
<08269>
of the city
<05892>_,
and to Joash
<03101>
the king's
<04428>
son
<01121>_;
And say
<0559> (8804)_,
Thus saith
<0559> (8804)
the king
<04428>_,
Put
<07760> (8798)
this [fellow] in the prison
<01004> <03608>_,
and feed
<0398> (8685)
him with bread
<03899>
of affliction
<03906>
and with water
<04325>
of affliction
<03906>_,
until I come
<0935> (8800)
in peace
<07965>_.
And Micaiah
<04321>
said
<0559> (8799)_,
If thou return
<07725> (8799)
at all
<07725> (8800)
in peace
<07965>_,
the LORD
<03068>
hath not spoken
<01696> (8765)
by me. And he said
<0559> (8799)_,
Hearken
<08085> (8798)_,
O people
<05971>_,
every one of you.
So the king
<04428>
of Israel
<03478>
and Jehoshaphat
<03092>
the king
<04428>
of Judah
<03063>
went up
<05927> (8799)
to Ramothgilead
<07433> <01568>_.
And the king
<04428>
of Israel
<03478>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto Jehoshaphat
<03092>_,
I will disguise
<02664> (8692)
myself, and enter
<0935> (8800)
into the battle
<04421>_;
but put thou on
<03847> (8798)
thy robes
<0899>_.
And the king
<04428>
of Israel
<03478>
disguised
<02664> (8691)
himself, and went
<0935> (8799)
into the battle
<04421>_.
{I will...: or, when he was to disguise himself, and enter into the battle}
But the king
<04428>
of Syria
<0758>
commanded
<06680> (8765)
his thirty
<07970>
and two
<08147>
captains
<08269>
that had rule over his chariots
<07393>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
Fight
<03898> (8735)
neither with small
<06996>
nor great
<01419>_,
save only with the king
<04428>
of Israel
<03478>_.
And it came to pass, when the captains
<08269>
of the chariots
<07393>
saw
<07200> (8800)
Jehoshaphat
<03092>_,
that they said
<0559> (8804)_,
Surely it [is] the king
<04428>
of Israel
<03478>_.
And they turned aside
<05493> (8799)
to fight
<03898> (8736)
against him: and Jehoshaphat
<03092>
cried out
<02199> (8799)_.
And it came to pass, when the captains
<08269>
of the chariots
<07393>
perceived
<07200> (8800)
that it [was] not the king
<04428>
of Israel
<03478>_,
that they turned back
<07725> (8799)
from pursuing
<0310>
him.
And a [certain] man
<0376>
drew
<04900> (8804)
a bow
<07198>
at a venture
<08537>_,
and smote
<05221> (8686)
the king
<04428>
of Israel
<03478>
between the joints
<01694>
of the harness
<08302>_:
wherefore he said
<0559> (8799)
unto the driver of his chariot
<07395>_,
Turn
<02015> (8798)
thine hand
<03027>_,
and carry me out
<03318> (8685)
of the host
<04264>_;
for I am wounded
<02470> (8717)_.
{at a...: Heb. in his simplicity} {joints...: Heb. joints and the breastplate} {wounded: Heb. made sick}
And the battle
<04421>
increased
<05927> (8799)
that day
<03117>_:
and the king
<04428>
was stayed up
<05975> (8716)
in his chariot
<04818>
against
<05227>
the Syrians
<0758>_,
and died
<04191> (8799)
at even
<06153>_:
and the blood
<01818>
ran out
<03332> (8799)
of the wound
<04347>
into the midst
<02436>
of the chariot
<07393>_.
{increased: Heb. ascended} {midst: Heb. bosom}
And there went
<05674> (8799)
a proclamation
<07440>
throughout the host
<04264>
about the going down
<0935> (8800)
of the sun
<08121>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
Every man
<0376>
to his city
<05892>_,
and every man
<0376>
to his own country
<0776>_.
So the king
<04428>
died
<04191> (8799)_,
and was brought
<0935> (8799)
to Samaria
<08111>_;
and they buried
<06912> (8799)
the king
<04428>
in Samaria
<08111>_.
{was brought: Heb. came}
And [one] washed
<07857> (8799)
the chariot
<07393>
in the pool
<01295>
of Samaria
<08111>_;
and the dogs
<03611>
licked up
<03952> (8799)
his blood
<01818>_;
and they washed
<07364> (8804)
his armour
<02185>_;
according unto the word
<01697>
of the LORD
<03068>
which he spake
<01696> (8765)_.
Now the rest
<03499>
of the acts
<01697>
of Ahab
<0256>_,
and all that he did
<06213> (8804)_,
and the ivory
<08127>
house
<01004>
which he made
<01129> (8804)_,
and all the cities
<05892>
that he built
<01129> (8804)_,
[are] they not written
<03789> (8803)
in the book
<05612>
of the chronicles
<01697> <03117>
of the kings
<04428>
of Israel
<03478>_?
So Ahab
<0256>
slept
<07901> (8799)
with his fathers
<01>_;
and Ahaziah
<0274>
his son
<01121>
reigned
<04427> (8799)
in his stead.
And Jehoshaphat
<03092>
the son
<01121>
of Asa
<0609>
began to reign
<04427> (8804)
over Judah
<03063>
in the fourth
<0702>
year
<08141>
of Ahab
<0256>
king
<04428>
of Israel
<03478>_.
Jehoshaphat
<03092>
[was] thirty
<07970>
and five
<02568>
years
<08141>
old
<01121>
when he began to reign
<04427> (8800)_;
and he reigned
<04427> (8804)
twenty
<06242>
and five
<02568>
years
<08141>
in Jerusalem
<03389>_.
And his mother's
<0517>
name
<08034>
[was] Azubah
<05806>
the daughter
<01323>
of Shilhi
<07977>_.
And he walked
<03212> (8799)
in all the ways
<01870>
of Asa
<0609>
his father
<01>_;
he turned not aside
<05493> (8804)
from it, doing
<06213> (8800)
[that which was] right
<03477>
in the eyes
<05869>
of the LORD
<03068>_:
nevertheless the high places
<01116>
were not taken away
<05493> (8804)_;
[for] the people
<05971>
offered
<02076> (8764)
and burnt incense
<06999> (8764)
yet in the high places
<01116>_.
And Jehoshaphat
<03092>
made peace
<07999> (8686)
with the king
<04428>
of Israel
<03478>_.
Now the rest
<03499>
of the acts
<01697>
of Jehoshaphat
<03092>_,
and his might
<01369>
that he shewed
<06213> (8804)_,
and how he warred
<03898> (8738)_,
[are] they not written
<03789> (8803)
in the book
<05612>
of the chronicles
<01697> <03117>
of the kings
<04428>
of Judah
<03063>_?
And the remnant
<03499>
of the sodomites
<06945>_,
which remained
<07604> (8738)
in the days
<03117>
of his father
<01>
Asa
<0609>_,
he took
<01197> (8765)
out of the land
<0776>_.
[There was] then no king
<04428>
in Edom
<0123>_:
a deputy
<05324> (8737)
[was] king
<04428>_.
Jehoshaphat
<03092>
made
<06213> (8804) (8675) <06240>
ships
<0591>
of Tharshish
<08659>
to go
<03212> (8800)
to Ophir
<0211>
for gold
<02091>_:
but they went
<01980> (8804)
not; for the ships
<0591>
were broken
<07665> (8738)
at Eziongeber
<06100>_.
{made...: or, had ten ships}
Then said
<0559> (8804)
Ahaziah
<0274>
the son
<01121>
of Ahab
<0256>
unto Jehoshaphat
<03092>_,
Let my servants
<05650>
go
<03212> (8799)
with thy servants
<05650>
in the ships
<0591>_.
But Jehoshaphat
<03092>
would
<014> (8804)
not.
And Jehoshaphat
<03092>
slept
<07901> (8799)
with his fathers
<01>_,
and was buried
<06912> (8735)
with his fathers
<01>
in the city
<05892>
of David
<01732>
his father
<01>_:
and Jehoram
<03088>
his son
<01121>
reigned
<04427> (8799)
in his stead.
Ahaziah
<0274>
the son
<01121>
of Ahab
<0256>
began to reign
<04427> (8804)
over Israel
<03478>
in Samaria
<08111>
the seventeenth
<07651> <06240>
year
<08141>
of Jehoshaphat
<03092>
king
<04428>
of Judah
<03063>_,
and reigned
<04427> (8799)
two years
<08141>
over Israel
<03478>_.
And he did
<06213> (8799)
evil
<07451>
in the sight
<05869>
of the LORD
<03068>_,
and walked
<03212> (8799)
in the way
<01870>
of his father
<01>_,
and in the way
<01870>
of his mother
<0517>_,
and in the way
<01870>
of Jeroboam
<03379>
the son
<01121>
of Nebat
<05028>_,
who made Israel
<03478>
to sin
<02398> (8689)_:
For he served
<05647> (8799)
Baal
<01168>_,
and worshipped
<07812> (8691)
him, and provoked to anger
<03707> (8686)
the LORD
<03068>
God
<0430>
of Israel
<03478>_,
according to all that his father
<01>
had done
<06213> (8804)_.
