2 Chronicles 28

Ahaz
<0271>
[was] twenty
<06242>
years
<08141>
old
<01121>
when he began to reign
<04427> (8800)_,
and he reigned
<04427> (8804)
sixteen
<08337> <06240>
years
<08141>
in Jerusalem
<03389>_:
but he did
<06213> (8804)
not [that which was] right
<03477>
in the sight
<05869>
of the LORD
<03068>_,
like David
<01732>
his father
<01>_:
For he walked in
<03212> (8799)
the ways
<01870>
of the kings
<04428>
of Israel
<03478>_,
and made
<06213> (8804)
also molten images
<04541>
for Baalim
<01168>_.
Moreover he burnt incense
<06999> (8689)
in the valley
<01516>
of the son
<01121>
of Hinnom
<02011>_,
and burnt
<01197> (8686)
his children
<01121>
in the fire
<0784>_,
after the abominations
<08441>
of the heathen
<01471>
whom the LORD
<03068>
had cast out
<03423> (8689)
before
<06440>
the children
<01121>
of Israel
<03478>_.
{burnt...: or, offered sacrifice}
He sacrificed
<02076> (8762)
also and burnt incense
<06999> (8762)
in the high places
<01116>_,
and on the hills
<01389>_,
and under every green
<07488>
tree
<06086>_.
Wherefore the LORD
<03068>
his God
<0430>
delivered
<05414> (8799)
him into the hand
<03027>
of the king
<04428>
of Syria
<0758>_;
and they smote
<05221> (8686)
him, and carried away
<07617> (8799)
a great multitude
<01419>
of them captives
<07633>_,
and brought
<0935> (8686)
[them] to Damascus
<01834>_.
And he was also delivered
<05414> (8737)
into the hand
<03027>
of the king
<04428>
of Israel
<03478>_,
who smote
<05221> (8686)
him with a great
<01419>
slaughter
<04347>_.
{Damascus: Heb. Darmesek}
For Pekah
<06492>
the son
<01121>
of Remaliah
<07425>
slew
<02026> (8799)
in Judah
<03063>
an hundred
<03967>
and twenty
<06242>
thousand
<0505>
in one
<0259>
day
<03117>_,
[which were] all valiant
<02428>
men
<01121>_;
because they had forsaken
<05800> (8800)
the LORD
<03068>
God
<0430>
of their fathers
<01>_.
{valiant...: Heb. sons of valour}
And Zichri
<02147>_,
a mighty man
<01368>
of Ephraim
<0669>_,
slew
<02026> (8799)
Maaseiah
<04641>
the king's
<04428>
son
<01121>_,
and Azrikam
<05840>
the governor
<05057>
of the house
<01004>_,
and Elkanah
<0511>
[that was] next
<04932>
to the king
<04428>_.
{next...: Heb. the second to the king}
And the children
<01121>
of Israel
<03478>
carried away captive
<07617> (8799)
of their brethren
<0251>
two hundred
<03967>
thousand
<0505>_,
women
<0802>_,
sons
<01121>_,
and daughters
<01323>_,
and took also away
<0962> (8804)
much
<07227>
spoil
<07998>
from them, and brought
<0935> (8686)
the spoil
<07998>
to Samaria
<08111>_.
But a prophet
<05030>
of the LORD
<03068>
was there, whose name
<08034>
[was] Oded
<05752>_:
and he went out
<03318> (8799)
before
<06440>
the host
<06635>
that came
<0935> (8802)
to Samaria
<08111>_,
and said
<0559> (8799)
unto them, Behold, because the LORD
<03068>
God
<0430>
of your fathers
<01>
was wroth
<02534>
with Judah
<03063>_,
he hath delivered
<05414> (8804)
them into your hand
<03027>_,
and ye have slain
<02026> (8799)
them in a rage
<02197>
[that] reacheth up
<05060> (8689)
unto heaven
<08064>_.
And now ye purpose
<0559> (8802)
to keep under
<03533> (8800)
the children
<01121>
of Judah
<03063>
and Jerusalem
<03389>
for bondmen
<05650>
and bondwomen
<08198>
unto you: [but are there] not with you, even
<07535>
with you, sins
<0819>
against the LORD
<03068>
your God
<0430>_?
Now hear
<08085> (8798)
me therefore, and deliver
<07725> (8685)
the captives
<07633>
again, which ye have taken captive
<07617> (8804)
of your brethren
<0251>_:
for the fierce
<02740>
wrath
<0639>
of the LORD
<03068>
[is] upon you.
Then certain
<0582>
of the heads
<07218>
of the children
<01121>
of Ephraim
<0669>_,
Azariah
<05838>
the son
<01121>
of Johanan
<03076>_,
Berechiah
<01296>
the son
<01121>
of Meshillemoth
<04919>_,
and Jehizkiah
<03169>
the son
<01121>
of Shallum
<07967>_,
and Amasa
<06021>
the son
<01121>
of Hadlai
<02311>_,
stood up
<06965> (8799)
against them that came
<0935> (8802)
from the war
<06635>_,
And said
<0559> (8799)
unto them, Ye shall not bring in
<0935> (8686)
the captives
<07633>
hither: for whereas we have offended
<0819>
against the LORD
<03068>
[already], ye intend
<0559> (8802)
to add
<03254> (8687)
[more] to our sins
<02403>
and to our trespass
<0819>_:
for our trespass
<0819>
is great
<07227>_,
and [there is] fierce
<02740>
wrath
<0639>
against Israel
<03478>_.
So the armed men
<02502> (8803)
left
<05800> (8799)
the captives
<07633>
and the spoil
<0961>
before
<06440>
the princes
<08269>
and all the congregation
<06951>_.
And the men
<0582>
which were expressed
<05344> (8738)
by name
<08034>
rose up
<06965> (8799)_,
and took
<02388> (8686)
the captives
<07633>_,
and with the spoil
<07998>
clothed
<03847> (8689)
all that were naked
<04636>
among them, and arrayed
<03847> (8686)
them, and shod
<05274> (8686)
them, and gave them to eat
<0398> (8686)
and to drink
<08248> (8686)_,
and anointed
<05480> (8799)
them, and carried
<05095> (8762)
all the feeble
<03782> (8802)
of them upon asses
<02543>_,
and brought
<0935> (8686)
them to Jericho
<03405>_,
the city
<05892>
of palm trees
<08558> (8677) <05899>_,
to
<0681>
their brethren
<0251>_:
then they returned
<07725> (8799)
to Samaria
<08111>_.
At that time
<06256>
did king
<04428>
Ahaz
<0271>
send
<07971> (8804)
unto the kings
<04428>
of Assyria
<0804>
to help
<05826> (8800)
him.
For again the Edomites
<0130>
had come
<0935> (8804)
and smitten
<05221> (8686)
Judah
<03063>_,
and carried away
<07617> (8799)
captives
<07628>_.
{captives: Heb. a captivity}
The Philistines
<06430>
also had invaded
<06584> (8804)
the cities
<05892>
of the low country
<08219>_,
and of the south
<05045>
of Judah
<03063>_,
and had taken
<03920> (8799)
Bethshemesh
<01053>_,
and Ajalon
<0357>_,
and Gederoth
<01450>_,
and Shocho
<07755>
with the villages
<01323>
thereof, and Timnah
<08553>
with the villages
<01323>
thereof, Gimzo
<01579>
also and the villages
<01323>
thereof: and they dwelt
<03427> (8799)
there.
For the LORD
<03068>
brought
<03665> (0)
Judah
<03063>
low
<03665> (8689)
because of Ahaz
<0271>
king
<04428>
of Israel
<03478>_;
for he made
<06544> (0)
Judah
<03063>
naked
<06544> (8689)_,
and transgressed
<04603> (8800)
sore
<04604>
against the LORD
<03068>_.
And Tilgathpilneser
<08407>
king
<04428>
of Assyria
<0804>
came
<0935> (8799)
unto him, and distressed
<06696> (8799)
him, but strengthened
<02388> (8804)
him not.
For Ahaz
<0271>
took away a portion
<02505> (8804)
[out] of the house
<01004>
of the LORD
<03068>_,
and [out] of the house
<01004>
of the king
<04428>_,
and of the princes
<08269>_,
and gave
<05414> (8799)
[it] unto the king
<04428>
of Assyria
<0804>_:
but he helped
<05833>
him not.
And in the time
<06256>
of his distress
<06887> (8687)
did he trespass
<04603> (8800)
yet more
<03254> (8686)
against the LORD
<03068>_:
this [is that] king
<04428>
Ahaz
<0271>_.
For he sacrificed
<02076> (8799)
unto the gods
<0430>
of Damascus
<01834>_,
which smote
<05221> (8688)
him: and he said
<0559> (8799)_,
Because the gods
<0430>
of the kings
<04428>
of Syria
<0758>
help
<05826> (8688)
them, [therefore] will I sacrifice
<02076> (8762)
to them, that they may help
<05826> (8799)
me. But they were the ruin
<03782> (8687)
of him, and of all Israel
<03478>_.
{Damascus: Heb. Darmesek}
And Ahaz
<0271>
gathered together
<0622> (8799)
the vessels
<03627>
of the house
<01004>
of God
<0430>_,
and cut in pieces
<07112> (8762)
the vessels
<03627>
of the house
<01004>
of God
<0430>_,
and shut up
<05462> (8799)
the doors
<01817>
of the house
<01004>
of the LORD
<03068>_,
and he made
<06213> (8799)
him altars
<04196>
in every corner
<06438>
of Jerusalem
<03389>_.
And in every several city
<05892>
of Judah
<03063>
he made
<06213> (8804)
high places
<01116>
to burn incense
<06999> (8763)
unto other
<0312>
gods
<0430>_,
and provoked to anger
<03707> (8686)
the LORD
<03068>
God
<0430>
of his fathers
<01>_.
{to burn: or, to offer}
Now the rest
<03499>
of his acts
<01697>
and of all his ways
<01870>_,
first
<07223>
and last
<0314>_,
behold, they [are] written
<03789> (8803)
in the book
<05612>
of the kings
<04428>
of Judah
<03063>
and Israel
<03478>_.
And Ahaz
<0271>
slept
<07901> (8799)
with his fathers
<01>_,
and they buried
<06912> (8799)
him in the city
<05892>_,
[even] in Jerusalem
<03389>_:
but they brought
<0935> (8689)
him not into the sepulchres
<06913>
of the kings
<04428>
of Israel
<03478>_:
and Hezekiah
<03169>
his son
<01121>
reigned
<04427> (8799)
in his stead.
