2 Kings 3:1-27

Now Jehoram
<03088>
the son
<01121>
of Ahab
<0256>
began to reign
<04427> (8804)
over Israel
<03478>
in Samaria
<08111>
the eighteenth
<08083> <06240>
year
<08141>
of Jehoshaphat
<03092>
king
<04428>
of Judah
<03063>_,
and reigned
<04427> (8799)
twelve
<08147> <06240>
years
<08141>_.
And he wrought
<06213> (8799)
evil
<07451>
in the sight
<05869>
of the LORD
<03068>_;
but not like his father
<01>_,
and like his mother
<0517>_:
for he put away
<05493> (8686)
the image
<04676>
of Baal
<01168>
that his father
<01>
had made
<06213> (8804)_.
{image: Heb. statue}
Nevertheless he cleaved
<01692> (8804)
unto the sins
<02403>
of Jeroboam
<03379>
the son
<01121>
of Nebat
<05028>_,
which made Israel
<03478>
to sin
<02398> (8689)_;
he departed
<05493> (8804)
not therefrom.
And Mesha
<04338>
king
<04428>
of Moab
<04124>
was a sheepmaster
<05349>_,
and rendered
<07725> (8689)
unto the king
<04428>
of Israel
<03478>
an hundred
<03967>
thousand
<0505>
lambs
<03733>_,
and an hundred
<03967>
thousand
<0505>
rams
<0352>_,
with the wool
<06785>_.
But it came to pass, when Ahab
<0256>
was dead
<04194>_,
that the king
<04428>
of Moab
<04124>
rebelled
<06586> (8799)
against the king
<04428>
of Israel
<03478>_.
And king
<04428>
Jehoram
<03088>
went out
<03318> (8799)
of Samaria
<08111>
the same time
<03117>_,
and numbered
<06485> (8799)
all Israel
<03478>_.
And he went
<03212> (8799)
and sent
<07971> (8799)
to Jehoshaphat
<03092>
the king
<04428>
of Judah
<03063>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
The king
<04428>
of Moab
<04124>
hath rebelled
<06586> (8804)
against me: wilt thou go
<03212> (8799)
with me against Moab
<04124>
to battle
<04421>_?
And he said
<0559> (8799)_,
I will go up
<05927> (8799)_:
I [am] as thou [art], my people
<05971>
as thy people
<05971>_,
[and] my horses
<05483>
as thy horses
<05483>_.
And he said
<0559> (8799)_,
Which way
<01870>
shall we go up
<05927> (8799)_?
And he answered
<0559> (8799)_,
The way
<01870>
through the wilderness
<04057>
of Edom
<0123>_.
So the king
<04428>
of Israel
<03478>
went
<03212> (8799)_,
and the king
<04428>
of Judah
<03063>_,
and the king
<04428>
of Edom
<0123>_:
and they fetched a compass
<05437> (8799)
of seven
<07651>
days
<03117>_'
journey
<01870>_:
and there was no water
<04325>
for the host
<04264>_,
and for the cattle
<0929>
that followed
<07272>
them. {that...: Heb. at their feet}
And the king
<04428>
of Israel
<03478>
said
<0559> (8799)_,
Alas
<0162>_!
that the LORD
<03068>
hath called
<07121> (0)
these three
<07969>
kings
<04428>
together
<07121> (8804)_,
to deliver
<05414> (8800)
them into the hand
<03027>
of Moab
<04124>_!
But Jehoshaphat
<03092>
said
<0559> (8799)_,
[Is there] not here a prophet
<05030>
of the LORD
<03068>_,
that we may enquire
<01875> (8799)
of the LORD
<03068>
by him? And one
<0259>
of the king
<04428>
of Israel's
<03478>
servants
<05650>
answered
<06030> (8799)
and said
<0559> (8799)_,
Here [is] Elisha
<0477>
the son
<01121>
of Shaphat
<08202>_,
which poured
<03332> (8804)
water
<04325>
on the hands
<03027>
of Elijah
<0452>_.
And Jehoshaphat
<03092>
said
<0559> (8799)_,
The word
<01697>
of the LORD
<03068>
is
<03426>
with him. So the king
<04428>
of Israel
<03478>
and Jehoshaphat
<03092>
and the king
<04428>
of Edom
<0123>
went down
<03381> (8799)
to him.
And Elisha
<0477>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto the king
<04428>
of Israel
<03478>_,
What have I to do with thee? get
<03212> (8798)
thee to the prophets
<05030>
of thy father
<01>_,
and to the prophets
<05030>
of thy mother
<0517>_.
And the king
<04428>
of Israel
<03478>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto him, Nay: for the LORD
<03068>
hath called
<07121> (0)
these three
<07969>
kings
<04428>
together
<07121> (8804)_,
to deliver
<05414> (8800)
them into the hand
<03027>
of Moab
<04124>_.
And Elisha
<0477>
said
<0559> (8799)_,
[As] the LORD
<03068>
of hosts
<06635>
liveth
<02416>_,
before
<06440>
whom I stand
<05975> (8804)_,
surely, were it not that
<03884>
I regard
<05375> (8802)
the presence
<06440>
of Jehoshaphat
<03092>
the king
<04428>
of Judah
<03063>_,
I would not look
<05027> (8686)
toward thee, nor see
<07200> (8799)
thee.
But now bring
<03947> (8798)
me a minstrel
<05059> (8764)_.
And it came to pass, when the minstrel
<05059> (8764)
played
<05059> (8763)_,
that the hand
<03027>
of the LORD
<03068>
came upon him.
And he said
<0559> (8799)_,
Thus saith
<0559> (8804)
the LORD
<03068>_,
Make
<06213> (8800)
this valley
<05158>
full of ditches
<01356>_.
For thus saith
<0559> (8804)
the LORD
<03068>_,
Ye shall not see
<07200> (8799)
wind
<07307>_,
neither shall ye see
<07200> (8799)
rain
<01653>_;
yet that valley
<05158>
shall be filled
<04390> (8735)
with water
<04325>_,
that ye may drink
<08354> (8804)_,
both ye, and your cattle
<04735>_,
and your beasts
<0929>_.
And this is [but] a light thing
<07043> (8738)
in the sight
<05869>
of the LORD
<03068>_:
he will deliver
<05414> (8804)
the Moabites
<04124>
also into your hand
<03027>_.
And ye shall smite
<05221> (8689)
every fenced
<04013>
city
<05892>_,
and every choice
<04004>
city
<05892>_,
and shall fell
<05307> (8686)
every good
<02896>
tree
<06086>_,
and stop
<05640> (8799)
all wells
<04599>
of water
<04325>_,
and mar
<03510> (8686)
every good
<02896>
piece
<02513>
of land with stones
<068>_.
{mar: Heb. grieve}
And it came to pass in the morning
<01242>_,
when the meat offering
<04503>
was offered
<05927> (8800)_,
that, behold, there came
<0935> (8802)
water
<04325>
by the way
<01870>
of Edom
<0123>_,
and the country
<0776>
was filled
<04390> (8735)
with water
<04325>_.
And when all the Moabites
<04124>
heard
<08085> (8804)
that the kings
<04428>
were come up
<05927> (8804)
to fight
<03898> (8736)
against them, they gathered
<06817> (8735)
all that were able to put
<02296> (8802)
on armour
<02290>_,
and upward
<04605>_,
and stood
<05975> (8799)
in the border
<01366>_.
{gathered: Heb. were cried together} {put on...: Heb. gird himself with a girdle}
And they rose up early
<07925> (8686)
in the morning
<01242>_,
and the sun
<08121>
shone
<02224> (8804)
upon the water
<04325>_,
and the Moabites
<04124>
saw
<07200> (8799)
the water
<04325>
on the other side
<05048>
[as] red
<0122>
as blood
<01818>_:
And they said
<0559> (8799)_,
This [is] blood
<01818>_:
the kings
<04428>
are surely
<02717> (8715)
slain
<02717> (8738)_,
and they have smitten
<05221> (8686)
one
<0376>
another
<07453>_:
now therefore, Moab
<04124>_,
to the spoil
<07998>_.
{slain: Heb. destroyed}
And when they came
<0935> (8799)
to the camp
<04264>
of Israel
<03478>_,
the Israelites
<03478>
rose up
<06965> (8799)
and smote
<05221> (8686)
the Moabites
<04124>_,
so that they fled
<05127> (8799)
before
<06440>
them: but they went forward
<05221> (8686)
smiting
<05221> (8687)
the Moabites
<04124>_,
even in [their] country. {they went...: or, they smote in it even smiting}
And they beat down
<02040> (8799)
the cities
<05892>_,
and on every good
<02896>
piece
<02513>
of land cast
<07993> (8686)
every man
<0376>
his stone
<068>_,
and filled
<04390> (8765)
it; and they stopped
<05640> (8799)
all the wells
<04599>
of water
<04325>_,
and felled
<05307> (8686)
all the good
<02896>
trees
<06086>_:
only in Kirharaseth
<07025>
left
<07604> (8689)
they the stones
<068>
thereof; howbeit the slingers
<07051>
went about
<05437> (8799)
[it], and smote
<05221> (8686)
it. {only in...: Heb. until he left its stones in Kirharaseth}
And when the king
<04428>
of Moab
<04124>
saw
<07200> (8799)
that the battle
<04421>
was too sore
<02388> (8804)
for him, he took
<03947> (8799)
with him seven
<07651>
hundred
<03967>
men
<0376>
that drew
<08025> (8802)
swords
<02719>_,
to break through
<01234> (8687)
[even] unto the king
<04428>
of Edom
<0123>_:
but they could
<03201> (8804)
not.
Then he took
<03947> (8799)
his eldest
<01060>
son
<01121>
that should have reigned
<04427> (8799)
in his stead, and offered
<05927> (8686)
him [for] a burnt offering
<05930>
upon the wall
<02346>_.
And there was great
<01419>
indignation
<07110>
against Israel
<03478>_:
and they departed
<05265> (8799)
from him, and returned
<07725> (8799)
to [their own] land
<0776>_.
