2 Chronicles 35:20-27

After
<0310>
all this, when Josiah
<02977>
had prepared
<03559> (8689)
the temple
<01004>_,
Necho
<05224>
king
<04428>
of Egypt
<04714>
came up
<05927> (8804)
to fight
<03898> (8736)
against Carchemish
<03751>
by Euphrates
<06578>_:
and Josiah
<02977>
went out
<03318> (8799)
against
<07125> (8800)
him. {temple: Heb. house}
But he sent
<07971> (8799)
ambassadors
<04397>
to him, saying
<0559> (8800)_,
What have I to do with thee, thou king
<04428>
of Judah
<03063>_?
[I come] not against thee this day
<03117>_,
but against the house
<01004>
wherewith I have war
<04421>_:
for God
<0430>
commanded
<0559> (8804)
me to make haste
<0926> (8763)_:
forbear
<02308> (8798)
thee from [meddling with] God
<0430>_,
who [is] with me, that he destroy
<07843> (8686)
thee not. {the house...: Heb. the house of my war}
Nevertheless Josiah
<02977>
would not turn
<05437> (8689)
his face
<06440>
from him, but disguised
<02664> (8694)
himself, that he might fight
<03898> (8736)
with him, and hearkened
<08085> (8804)
not unto the words
<01697>
of Necho
<05224>
from the mouth
<06310>
of God
<0430>_,
and came
<0935> (8799)
to fight
<03898> (8736)
in the valley
<01237>
of Megiddo
<04023>_.
And the archers
<03384> (8802)
shot
<03384> (8686)
at king
<04428>
Josiah
<02977>_;
and the king
<04428>
said
<0559> (8799)
to his servants
<05650>_,
Have me away
<05674> (8685)_;
for I am sore
<03966>
wounded
<02470> (8717)_.
{wounded: Heb. made sick}
His servants
<05650>
therefore took
<05674> (8686)
him out of that chariot
<04818>_,
and put
<07392> (8686)
him in the second
<04932>
chariot
<07393>
that he had; and they brought
<03212> (8686)
him to Jerusalem
<03389>_,
and he died
<04191> (8799)_,
and was buried
<06912> (8735)
in [one of] the sepulchres
<06913>
of his fathers
<01>_.
And all Judah
<03063>
and Jerusalem
<03389>
mourned
<056> (8693)
for Josiah
<02977>_.
{in one...: or, among the sepulchres}
And Jeremiah
<03414>
lamented
<06969> (8787)
for Josiah
<02977>_:
and all the singing men
<07891> (8802)
and the singing women
<07891> (8802)
spake
<0559> (8799)
of Josiah
<02977>
in their lamentations
<07015>
to this day
<03117>_,
and made
<05414> (8799)
them an ordinance
<02706>
in Israel
<03478>_:
and, behold, they [are] written
<03789> (8803)
in the lamentations
<07015>_.
Now the rest
<03499>
of the acts
<01697>
of Josiah
<02977>_,
and his goodness
<02617>_,
according to [that which was] written
<03789> (8803)
in the law
<08451>
of the LORD
<03068>_,
{goodness: Heb. kindnesses}
And his deeds
<01697>_,
first
<07223>
and last
<0314>_,
behold, they [are] written
<03789> (8803)
in the book
<05612>
of the kings
<04428>
of Israel
<03478>
and Judah
<03063>_.
