2 Chronicles 13:1-22

Now in the eighteenth
<08083> <06240>
year
<08141>
of king
<04428>
Jeroboam
<03379>
began Abijah
<029>
to reign
<04427> (8799)
over Judah
<03063>_.
He reigned
<04427> (8804)
three
<07969>
years
<08141>
in Jerusalem
<03389>_.
His mother's
<0517>
name
<08034>
also [was] Michaiah
<04322>
the daughter
<01323>
of Uriel
<0222>
of Gibeah
<01390>_.
And there was war
<04421>
between Abijah
<029>
and Jeroboam
<03379>_.
And Abijah
<029>
set
<0631> (0)
the battle
<04421>
in array
<0631> (8799)
with an army
<02428>
of valiant men
<01368>
of war
<04421>_,
[even] four
<0702>
hundred
<03967>
thousand
<0505>
chosen
<0977> (8803)
men
<0376>_:
Jeroboam
<03379>
also set the battle
<04421>
in array
<06186> (8804)
against him with eight
<08083>
hundred
<03967>
thousand
<0505>
chosen
<0977> (8803)
men
<0376>_,
[being] mighty men
<01368>
of valour
<02428>_.
{Abijah set: Heb. Abijah bound together}
And Abijah
<029>
stood up
<06965> (8799)
upon mount
<02022>
Zemaraim
<06787>_,
which [is] in mount
<02022>
Ephraim
<0669>_,
and said
<0559> (8799)_,
Hear
<08085> (8798)
me, thou Jeroboam
<03379>_,
and all Israel
<03478>_;
Ought ye not to know
<03045> (8800)
that the LORD
<03068>
God
<0430>
of Israel
<03478>
gave
<05414> (8804)
the kingdom
<04467>
over Israel
<03478>
to David
<01732>
for ever
<05769>_,
[even] to him and to his sons
<01121>
by a covenant
<01285>
of salt
<04417>_?
Yet Jeroboam
<03379>
the son
<01121>
of Nebat
<05028>_,
the servant
<05650>
of Solomon
<08010>
the son
<01121>
of David
<01732>_,
is risen up
<06965> (8799)_,
and hath rebelled
<04775> (8799)
against his lord
<0113>_.
And there are gathered
<06908> (8735)
unto him vain
<07386>
men
<0582>_,
the children
<01121>
of Belial
<01100>_,
and have strengthened
<0553> (8691)
themselves against Rehoboam
<07346>
the son
<01121>
of Solomon
<08010>_,
when Rehoboam
<07346>
was young
<05288>
and tenderhearted
<07390> <03824>_,
and could not withstand
<02388> (8694)
them
<06440>_.
And now ye think
<0559> (8802)
to withstand
<02388> (8692)
the kingdom
<06440> <04467>
of the LORD
<03068>
in the hand
<03027>
of the sons
<01121>
of David
<01732>_;
and ye [be] a great
<07227>
multitude
<01995>_,
and [there are] with you golden
<02091>
calves
<05695>_,
which Jeroboam
<03379>
made
<06213> (8804)
you for gods
<0430>_.
Have ye not cast out
<05080> (8689)
the priests
<03548>
of the LORD
<03068>_,
the sons
<01121>
of Aaron
<0175>_,
and the Levites
<03881>_,
and have made
<06213> (8799)
you priests
<03548>
after the manner of the nations
<05971>
of [other] lands
<0776>_?
so that whosoever cometh
<0935> (8802)
to consecrate
<04390> (8763) <03027>
himself with a young
<01121> <01241>
bullock
<06499>
and seven
<07651>
rams
<0352>_,
[the same] may be a priest
<03548>
of [them that are] no
<03808>
gods
<0430>_.
{to consecrate...: Heb. to fill his hand}
But as for us, the LORD
<03068>
[is] our God
<0430>_,
and we have not forsaken
<05800> (8804)
him; and the priests
<03548>_,
which minister
<08334> (8764)
unto the LORD
<03068>_,
[are] the sons
<01121>
of Aaron
<0175>_,
and the Levites
<03881>
[wait] upon [their] business
<04399>_:
And they burn
<06999> (8688)
unto the LORD
<03068>
every morning
<01242>
and every evening
<06153>
burnt sacrifices
<05930>
and sweet
<05561>
incense
<07004>_:
the shewbread
<03899> <04635>
also [set they in order] upon the pure
<02889>
table
<07979>_;
and the candlestick
<04501>
of gold
<02091>
with the lamps
<05216>
thereof, to burn
<01197> (8763)
every evening
<06153>_:
for we keep
<08104> (8802)
the charge
<04931>
of the LORD
<03068>
our God
<0430>_;
but ye have forsaken
<05800> (8804)
him.
And, behold, God
<0430>
himself [is] with us for [our] captain
<07218>_,
and his priests
<03548>
with sounding
<08643>
trumpets
<02689>
to cry alarm
<07321> (8687)
against you. O children
<01121>
of Israel
<03478>_,
fight
<03898> (8735)
ye not against the LORD
<03068>
God
<0430>
of your fathers
<01>_;
for ye shall not prosper
<06743> (8686)_.
But Jeroboam
<03379>
caused an ambushment
<03993>
to come
<0935> (8800)
about
<05437> (8689)
behind
<0310>
them: so they were before
<06440>
Judah
<03063>_,
and the ambushment
<03993>
[was] behind
<0310>
them.
And when Judah
<03063>
looked back
<06437> (8799)_,
behold, the battle
<04421>
[was] before
<06440>
and behind
<0268>_:
and they cried
<06817> (8799)
unto the LORD
<03068>_,
and the priests
<03548>
sounded
<02690> (8688) (8675) <02690> (8764)
with the trumpets
<02689>_.
Then the men
<0376>
of Judah
<03063>
gave a shout
<07321> (8686)_:
and as the men
<0376>
of Judah
<03063>
shouted
<07321> (8687)_,
it came to pass, that God
<0430>
smote
<05062> (8804)
Jeroboam
<03379>
and all Israel
<03478>
before
<06440>
Abijah
<029>
and Judah
<03063>_.
And the children
<01121>
of Israel
<03478>
fled
<05127> (8799)
before
<06440>
Judah
<03063>_:
and God
<0430>
delivered
<05414> (8799)
them into their hand
<03027>_.
And Abijah
<029>
and his people
<05971>
slew
<05221> (8686)
them with a great
<07227>
slaughter
<04347>_:
so there fell down
<05307> (8799)
slain
<02491>
of Israel
<03478>
five
<02568>
hundred
<03967>
thousand
<0505>
chosen
<0977> (8803)
men
<0376>_.
Thus the children
<01121>
of Israel
<03478>
were brought
<03665> (8735)
under at that time
<06256>_,
and the children
<01121>
of Judah
<03063>
prevailed
<0553> (8799)_,
because they relied
<08172> (8738)
upon the LORD
<03068>
God
<0430>
of their fathers
<01>_.
And Abijah
<029>
pursued
<07291> (8799)
after
<0310>
Jeroboam
<03379>_,
and took
<03920> (8799)
cities
<05892>
from him, Bethel
<01008>
with the towns
<01323>
thereof, and Jeshanah
<03466>
with the towns
<01323>
thereof, and Ephrain
<06085>
with the towns
<01323>
thereof.
Neither did Jeroboam
<03379>
recover
<06113> (8804)
strength
<03581>
again in the days
<03117>
of Abijah
<029>_:
and the LORD
<03068>
struck
<05062> (8799)
him, and he died
<04191> (8799)_.
But Abijah
<029>
waxed mighty
<02388> (8691)_,
and married
<05375> (8799)
fourteen
<0702> <06240>
wives
<0802>_,
and begat
<03205> (8686)
twenty
<06242>
and two
<08147>
sons
<01121>_,
and sixteen
<08337> <06240>
daughters
<01323>_.
And the rest
<03499>
of the acts
<01697>
of Abijah
<029>_,
and his ways
<01870>_,
and his sayings
<01697>_,
[are] written
<03789> (8803)
in the story
<04097>
of the prophet
<05030>
Iddo
<05714>_.
