2 Kings 1

Then Moab
<04124>
rebelled
<06586> (8799)
against Israel
<03478>
after
<0310>
the death
<04194>
of Ahab
<0256>_.
And Ahaziah
<0274>
fell down
<05307> (8799)
through a lattice
<07639>
in his upper chamber
<05944>
that [was] in Samaria
<08111>_,
and was sick
<02470> (8799)_:
and he sent
<07971> (8799)
messengers
<04397>_,
and said
<0559> (8799)
unto them, Go
<03212> (8798)_,
enquire
<01875> (8798)
of Baalzebub
<01176>
the god
<0430>
of Ekron
<06138>
whether I shall recover
<02421> (8799)
of this disease
<02483>_.
But the angel
<04397>
of the LORD
<03068>
said
<01696> (8765)
to Elijah
<0452>
the Tishbite
<08664>_,
Arise
<06965> (8798)_,
go up
<05927> (8798)
to meet
<07125> (8800)
the messengers
<04397>
of the king
<04428>
of Samaria
<08111>_,
and say
<01696> (8761)
unto them, [Is it] not because [there is] not a God
<0430>
in Israel
<03478>_,
[that] ye go
<01980> (8802)
to enquire
<01875> (8800)
of Baalzebub
<01176>
the god
<0430>
of Ekron
<06138>_?
Now therefore thus saith
<0559> (8804)
the LORD
<03068>_,
Thou shalt not come down
<03381> (8799)
from that bed
<04296>
on which thou art gone up
<05927> (8804)_,
but shalt surely
<04191> (8800)
die
<04191> (8799)_.
And Elijah
<0452>
departed
<03212> (8799)_.
{Thou shalt...: Heb. The bed whither thou art gone up, thou shalt not come down from it}
And when the messengers
<04397>
turned back
<07725> (8799)
unto him, he said
<0559> (8799)
unto them, Why are ye now
<02088>
turned back
<07725> (8804)_?
And they said
<0559> (8799)
unto him, There came
<05927> (0)
a man
<0376>
up
<05927> (8804)
to meet
<07125> (8800)
us, and said
<0559> (8799)
unto us, Go
<03212> (8798)_,
turn again
<07725> (8798)
unto the king
<04428>
that sent
<07971> (8804)
you, and say
<01696> (8765)
unto him, Thus saith
<0559> (8804)
the LORD
<03068>_,
[Is it] not because [there is] not a God
<0430>
in Israel
<03478>_,
[that] thou sendest
<07971> (8802)
to enquire
<01875> (8800)
of Baalzebub
<01176>
the god
<0430>
of Ekron
<06138>_?
therefore thou shalt not come down
<03381> (8799)
from that bed
<04296>
on which thou art gone up
<05927> (8804)_,
but shalt surely
<04191> (8800)
die
<04191> (8799)_.
And he said
<01696> (8762)
unto them, What manner
<04941>
of man
<0376>
[was he] which came up
<05927> (8804)
to meet
<07125> (8800)
you, and told
<01696> (8762)
you these words
<01697>_?
{What...: Heb. What was the manner of the man}
And they answered
<0559> (8799)
him, [He was] an hairy
<08181>
man
<01167> <0376>_,
and girt
<0247> (8803)
with a girdle
<0232>
of leather
<05785>
about his loins
<04975>_.
And he said
<0559> (8799)_,
It [is] Elijah
<0452>
the Tishbite
<08664>_.
Then the king
<04428>
sent
<07971> (8799)
unto him a captain
<08269>
of fifty
<02572>
with his fifty
<02572>_.
And he went up
<05927> (8799)
to him: and, behold, he sat
<03427> (8802)
on the top
<07218>
of an hill
<02022>_.
And he spake
<01696> (8762)
unto him, Thou man
<0376>
of God
<0430>_,
the king
<04428>
hath said
<01696> (8765)_,
Come down
<03381> (8798)_.
And Elijah
<0452>
answered
<06030> (8799)
and said
<01696> (8762)
to the captain
<08269>
of fifty
<02572>_,
If I [be] a man
<0376>
of God
<0430>_,
then let fire
<0784>
come down
<03381> (8799)
from heaven
<08064>_,
and consume
<0398> (8799)
thee and thy fifty
<02572>_.
And there came down
<03381> (8799)
fire
<0784>
from heaven
<08064>_,
and consumed
<0398> (8799)
him and his fifty
<02572>_.
Again
<07725> (8799)
also he sent
<07971> (8799)
unto him another
<0312>
captain
<08269>
of fifty
<02572>
with his fifty
<02572>_.
And he answered
<06030> (8799)
and said
<01696> (8762)
unto him, O man
<0376>
of God
<0430>_,
thus hath the king
<04428>
said
<0559> (8804)_,
Come down
<03381> (8798)
quickly
<04120>_.
And Elijah
<0452>
answered
<06030> (8799)
and said
<01696> (8762)
unto them, If I [be] a man
<0376>
of God
<0430>_,
let fire
<0784>
come down
<03381> (8799)
from heaven
<08064>_,
and consume
<0398> (8799)
thee and thy fifty
<02572>_.
And the fire
<0784>
of God
<0430>
came down
<03381> (8799)
from heaven
<08064>_,
and consumed
<0398> (8799)
him and his fifty
<02572>_.
And he sent
<07971> (8799)
again
<07725> (8799)
a captain
<08269>
of the third
<07992>
fifty
<02572>
with his fifty
<02572>_.
And the third
<07992>
captain
<08269>
of fifty
<02572>
went up
<05927> (8799)_,
and came
<0935> (8799)
and fell
<03766> (8799)
on his knees
<01290>
before
<05048>
Elijah
<0452>_,
and besought
<02603> (8691)
him, and said
<01696> (8762)
unto him, O man
<0376>
of God
<0430>_,
I pray thee, let my life
<05315>_,
and the life
<05315>
of these fifty
<02572>
thy servants
<05650>_,
be precious
<03365> (8799)
in thy sight
<05869>_.
{fell: Heb. bowed}
Behold, there came
<03381> (0)
fire
<0784>
down
<03381> (8804)
from heaven
<08064>_,
and burnt up
<0398> (8799)
the two
<08147>
captains
<08269>
of the former
<07223>
fifties
<02572>
with their fifties
<02572>_:
therefore let my life
<05315>
now be precious
<03365> (8799)
in thy sight
<05869>_.
And the angel
<04397>
of the LORD
<03068>
said
<01696> (8762)
unto Elijah
<0452>_,
Go down
<03381> (8798)
with him: be not afraid
<03372> (8799)
of him
<06440>_.
And he arose
<06965> (8799)_,
and went down
<03381> (8799)
with him unto the king
<04428>_.
And he said
<01696> (8762)
unto him, Thus saith
<0559> (8804)
the LORD
<03068>_,
Forasmuch as thou hast sent
<07971> (8804)
messengers
<04397>
to enquire
<01875> (8800)
of Baalzebub
<01176>
the god
<0430>
of Ekron
<06138>_,
[is it] not because [there is] no God
<0430>
in Israel
<03478>
to enquire
<01875> (8800)
of his word
<01697>_?
therefore thou shalt not come down
<03381> (8799)
off that bed
<04296>
on which thou art gone up
<05927> (8804)_,
but shalt surely
<04191> (8800)
die
<04191> (8799)_.
So he died
<04191> (8799)
according to the word
<01697>
of the LORD
<03068>
which Elijah
<0452>
had spoken
<01696> (8765)_.
And Jehoram
<03088>
reigned
<04427> (8799)
in his stead in the second
<08147>
year
<08141>
of Jehoram
<03088>
the son
<01121>
of Jehoshaphat
<03092>
king
<04428>
of Judah
<03063>_;
because he had no son
<01121>_.
Now the rest
<03499>
of the acts
<01697>
of Ahaziah
<0274>
which he did
<06213> (8804)_,
[are] they not written
<03789> (8803)
in the book
<05612>
of the chronicles
<01697> <03117>
of the kings
<04428>
of Israel
<03478>_?
