2 Chronicles 16

In the six
<08337>
and thirtieth
<07970>
year
<08141>
of the reign
<04438>
of Asa
<0609>
Baasha
<01201>
king
<04428>
of Israel
<03478>
came up
<05927> (8804)
against Judah
<03063>_,
and built
<01129> (8799)
Ramah
<07414>_,
to the intent that
<01115>
he might let
<05414> (8800)
none go out
<03318> (8802)
or come in
<0935> (8802)
to Asa
<0609>
king
<04428>
of Judah
<03063>_.
Then Asa
<0609>
brought out
<03318> (8686)
silver
<03701>
and gold
<02091>
out of the treasures
<0214>
of the house
<01004>
of the LORD
<03068>
and of the king's
<04428>
house
<01004>_,
and sent
<07971> (8799)
to Benhadad
<01130>
king
<04428>
of Syria
<0758>_,
that dwelt
<03427> (8802)
at Damascus
<01834>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
{Damascus: Heb. Darmesek}
[There is] a league
<01285>
between me and thee, as [there was] between my father
<01>
and thy father
<01>_:
behold, I have sent
<07971> (8804)
thee silver
<03701>
and gold
<02091>_;
go
<03212> (8798)_,
break
<06565> (8685)
thy league
<01285>
with Baasha
<01201>
king
<04428>
of Israel
<03478>_,
that he may depart
<05927> (8799)
from me.
And Benhadad
<01130>
hearkened
<08085> (8799)
unto king
<04428>
Asa
<0609>_,
and sent
<07971> (8799)
the captains
<08269>
of his armies
<02428>
against the cities
<05892>
of Israel
<03478>_;
and they smote
<05221> (8686)
Ijon
<05859>_,
and Dan
<01835>_,
and Abelmaim
<066>_,
and all the store
<04543>
cities
<05892>
of Naphtali
<05321>_.
{his: Heb. which were his}
And it came to pass, when Baasha
<01201>
heard
<08085> (8800)
[it], that he left off
<02308> (8799)
building
<01129> (8800)
of Ramah
<07414>_,
and let his work
<04399>
cease
<07673> (8686)_.
Then Asa
<0609>
the king
<04428>
took
<03947> (8804)
all Judah
<03063>_;
and they carried away
<05375> (8799)
the stones
<068>
of Ramah
<07414>_,
and the timber
<06086>
thereof, wherewith Baasha
<01201>
was building
<01129> (8804)_;
and he built
<01129> (8799)
therewith Geba
<01387>
and Mizpah
<04709>_.
And at that time
<06256>
Hanani
<02607>
the seer
<07200> (8802)
came
<0935> (8804)
to Asa
<0609>
king
<04428>
of Judah
<03063>_,
and said
<0559> (8799)
unto him, Because thou hast relied
<08172> (8736)
on the king
<04428>
of Syria
<0758>_,
and not relied
<08172> (8738)
on the LORD
<03068>
thy God
<0430>_,
therefore is the host
<02428>
of the king
<04428>
of Syria
<0758>
escaped
<04422> (8738)
out of thine hand
<03027>_.
Were not the Ethiopians
<03569>
and the Lubims
<03864>
a huge
<07230>
host
<02428>_,
with very
<03966>
many
<07235> (8687)
chariots
<07393>
and horsemen
<06571>_?
yet, because thou didst rely
<08172> (8736)
on the LORD
<03068>_,
he delivered
<05414> (8804)
them into thine hand
<03027>_.
{a huge: Heb. in abundance}
For the eyes
<05869>
of the LORD
<03068>
run to and fro
<07751> (8789)
throughout the whole earth
<0776>_,
to shew himself strong
<02388> (8692)
in the behalf of [them] whose heart
<03824>
[is] perfect
<08003>
toward him. Herein thou hast done foolishly
<05528> (8738)_:
therefore from henceforth
<06258>
thou shalt have
<03426>
wars
<04421>_.
{to shew...: or, strongly to hold with them, etc}
Then Asa
<0609>
was wroth
<03707> (8799)
with the seer
<07200> (8802)_,
and put
<05414> (8799)
him in a prison
<04115>
house
<01004>_;
for [he was] in a rage
<02197>
with him because of this [thing]. And Asa
<0609>
oppressed
<07533> (8762)
[some] of the people
<05971>
the same time
<06256>_.
{oppressed: Heb. crushed}
And, behold, the acts
<01697>
of Asa
<0609>_,
first
<07223>
and last
<0314>_,
lo, they [are] written
<03789> (8803)
in the book
<05612>
of the kings
<04428>
of Judah
<03063>
and Israel
<03478>_.
And Asa
<0609>
in the thirty
<07970>
and ninth
<08672>
year
<08141>
of his reign
<04438>
was diseased
<02456> (8799)
in his feet
<07272>_,
until his disease
<02483>
[was] exceeding
<04605>
[great]: yet in his disease
<02483>
he sought
<01875> (8804)
not to the LORD
<03068>_,
but to the physicians
<07495> (8802)_.
And Asa
<0609>
slept
<07901> (8799)
with his fathers
<01>_,
and died
<04191> (8799)
in the one
<0259>
and fortieth
<0705>
year
<08141>
of his reign
<04427> (8800)_.
And they buried
<06912> (8799)
him in his own sepulchres
<06913>_,
which he had made
<03738> (8804)
for himself in the city
<05892>
of David
<01732>_,
and laid
<07901> (8686)
him in the bed
<04904>
which was filled
<04390> (8765)
with sweet odours
<01314>
and divers kinds
<02177>
[of spices] prepared
<07543> (8794)
by the apothecaries
<04842>_'
art
<04639>_:
and they made
<08313> (8799)
a very
<03966>
great
<01419>
burning
<08316>
for him. {had made: Heb. had digged}
