David retrieved everything the Amalekites had taken; he 1 also rescued his two wives.
Jeroboam did not regain power during the reign of Abijah. 1 The Lord struck him down and he died.
This is the prayer of King Hezekiah of Judah when he was sick and then recovered from his illness:
Elisha said to him, “Go and tell him, ‘You will surely recover,’ 1 but the Lord has revealed to me that he will surely die.”
1 Isaiah ordered, “Let them take a fig cake and apply it to the ulcerated sore and he will get well.”
At that time Merodach-Baladan son of Baladan, king of Babylon, sent letters and a gift to Hezekiah, for he heard that Hezekiah had been ill and had recovered.
Ahaziah fell through a window lattice in his upper chamber in Samaria 1 and was injured. He sent messengers with these orders, 2 “Go, ask 3 Baal Zebub, 4 the god of Ekron, if I will survive this injury.”
Then the disciples replied, 1 “Lord, if he has fallen asleep, he will recover.”
So Hazael went to visit Elisha. 1 He took along a gift, 2 as well as 3 forty camel loads of all the fine things of Damascus. When he arrived, he stood before him and said, “Your son, 4 King Ben Hadad of Syria, has sent me to you with this question, 5 ‘Will I recover from this sickness?’”
The rest of the events of Jeroboam’s reign, including all his accomplishments, his military success in restoring Israelite control over Damascus and Hamath, are recorded in the scroll called the Annals of the Kings of Israel. 1

Israel has been living in Heshbon and its nearby towns, in Aroer and its nearby towns, and in all the cities along the Arnon for three hundred years! Why did you not reclaim them during that time?
But all the evil and worthless men among those who had gone with David said, “Since they didn’t go with us, 1 we won’t give them any of the loot we retrieved! They may take only their wives and children. Let them lead them away and be gone!”
There was nothing missing, whether small or great. He retrieved sons and daughters, the plunder, and everything else they had taken. 1 David brought everything back.
