1 Reis

21. And Rehoboam, the son of Solomon, was king in Judah. Rehoboam was forty-one years old when he became king, and he was king for seventeen years in Jerusalem, the town which the Lord had made his out of all the tribes of Israel, to put his name there; his mother's name was Naamah, an Ammonite woman.

22. And Judah did evil in the eyes of the Lord, and made him more angry than their fathers had done by their sins.

23. For they made high places and upright stones and wood pillars on every high hill and under every green tree;

24. And more than this, there were those in the land who were used for sex purposes in the worship of the gods, doing the same disgusting crimes as the nations which the Lord had sent out before the children of Israel.

25. Now in the fifth year of King Rehoboam, Shishak, king of Egypt, came up against Jerusalem;

26. And took away all the stored wealth from the house of the Lord, and from the king's house, and all the gold body-covers which Solomon had made.

27. So in their place King Rehoboam had other body-covers made of brass, and gave them into the care of the captains of the armed men who were stationed at the door of the king's house.

28. And whenever the king went into the house of the Lord, the armed men went with him taking the body-covers, and then took them back to their room.

29. Now the rest of the acts of Rehoboam, and all he did, are they not recorded in the book of the history of the kings of Judah?

30. And there was war between Rehoboam and Jeroboam all their days.

31. And Rehoboam went to rest with his fathers, and was put into the earth with his fathers in the town of David; his mother's name was Naamah, an Ammonite woman. And Abijam his son became king in his place.

1. Now in the eighteenth year of king Jeroboam, the son of Nebat, Abijam became king over Judah.

2. For three years he was king in Jerusalem: and his mother's name was Maacah, the daughter of Abishalom.

3. And he did the same sins which his father had done before him: his heart was not completely true to the Lord his God, like the heart of David his father.

4. But because of David, the Lord gave him a light in Jerusalem, making his sons king after him, so that Jerusalem might be safe;

5. Because David did what was right in the eyes of the Lord, and never in all his life went against his orders, but only in the question of Uriah the Hittite.

6. ...

7. Now the rest of the acts of Abijam, and all he did, are they not recorded in the book of the history of the kings of Judah? And there was war between Abijam and Jeroboam.

8. Then Abijam went to rest with his fathers, and they put him into the earth in the town of David: and Asa his son became king in his place.

9. In the twentieth year that Jeroboam was king of Israel, Asa became king over Judah.

10. And he was king for forty-one years in Jerusalem; his mother's name was Maacah, the daughter of Abishalom.

11. Asa did what was right in the eyes of the Lord, as David his father did.

12. Those used for sex purposes in the worship of the gods he sent out of the country, and he took away all the images which his fathers had made.

13. And he would not let Maacah his mother be queen, because she had made a disgusting image for Asherah; and Asa had the image cut down and burned by the stream Kidron.

14. The high places, however, were not taken away: but still the heart of Asa was true to the Lord all his life.

15. He took into the house of the Lord all the things which his father had made holy, and those which he himself had made holy, silver and gold and vessels.

16. Now there was war between Asa and Baasha, king of Israel, all their days.

17. And Baasha, king of Israel, went up against Judah, building Ramah, so that no one was able to go out or in to Asa, king of Judah.

18. Then Asa took all the silver and gold which was still stored in the Lord's house, and in the king's house, and sent them, in the care of his servants, to Ben-hadad, son of Tabrimmon, son of Rezon, king of Aram, at Damascus, saying,

19. Let there be an agreement between me and you as there was between my father and your father: see, I have sent you an offering of silver and gold; go and put an end to your agreement with Baasha, king of Israel, so that he may give up attacking me.

20. So Ben-hadad did as King Asa said, and sent the captains of his armies against the towns of Israel, attacking Ijon and Dan and Abel-beth-maacah, and all Chinneroth as far as all the land of Naphtali.

21. And Baasha, hearing of it, put a stop to the building of Ramah, and was living in Tirzah.

22. Then King Asa got all Judah together, making every man come; and they took away the stones and the wood with which Baasha was building Ramah, and King Asa made use of them for building Geba in the land of Benjamin, and Mizpah.

23. Now the rest of the acts of Asa, and his power, and all he did, and the towns of which he was the builder, are they not recorded in the book of the history of the kings of Judah? But when he was old he had a disease of the feet.

24. So Asa went to rest with his fathers and was put into the earth in the town of David his father: and Jehoshaphat his son became king in his place.

25. Nadab, the son of Jeroboam, became king over Israel in the second year that Asa was king of Judah; and he was king of Israel for two years.

26. He did evil in the eyes of the Lord, copying the evil ways of his father, and the sin which he did and made Israel do.

27. And Baasha, the son of Ahijah, of the family of Issachar, made a secret design against him, attacking him at Gibbethon, a town of the Philistines; for Nadab and the armies of Israel were making war on Gibbethon.

28. In the third year of the rule of Asa, king of Judah, Baasha put him to death, and became king in his place.

29. And straight away when he became king, he sent destruction on all the offspring of Jeroboam; there was not one living person of all the family of Jeroboam whom he did not put to death, so the word of the Lord, which he said by his servant Ahijah the Shilonite, came about;

30. Because of the sins which Jeroboam did and made Israel do, moving the Lord, the God of Israel, to wrath.

31. Now the rest of the acts of Nadab, and all he did, are they not recorded in the book of the history of the kings of Israel?

32. And there was war between Asa and Baasha, king of Israel, all their days.

33. In the third year of the rule of Asa, king of Judah, Baasha, the son of Ahijah, became king over all Israel in Tirzah, and was king for twenty-four years.

34. He did evil in the eyes of the Lord, copying the evil ways of Jeroboam and the sin which he made Israel do.

1. And the word of the Lord came to Jehu, son of Hanani, protesting against Baasha and saying,

2. Because I took you up out of the dust, and made you ruler over my people Israel; and you have gone in the ways of Jeroboam, and made my people Israel do evil, moving me to wrath by their sins;

3. Truly, I will see that Baasha and all his family are completely brushed away; I will make your family like the family of Jeroboam, the son of Nebat.

4. Anyone of the family of Baasha who comes to death in the town, will become food for the dogs; and he to whom death comes in the open country, will be food for the birds of the air.

5. Now the rest of the acts of Baasha, and what he did, and his power, are they not recorded in the book of the history of the kings of Israel?

6. And Baasha went to rest with his fathers, and was put into the earth at Tirzah; and Elah his son became king in his place.

7. And the Lord sent his word against Baasha and his family by the mouth of the prophet Jehu, the son of Hanani, because of all the evil he did in the eyes of the Lord, moving him to wrath by the work of his hands, because he was like the family of Jeroboam, and because he put it to death.

8. In the twenty-sixth year that Asa was king of Judah, Elah, the son of Baasha, became king of Israel in Tirzah, and he was king for two years.

9. And his servant Zimri, captain of half his war-carriages, made secret designs against him: now he was in Tirzah, drinking hard in the house of Arza, controller of the king's house in Tirzah.

10. And Zimri went in and made an attack on him and put him to death, in the twenty-seventh year that Asa was king of Judah, and made himself king in his place.

11. And straight away when he became king and took his place on the seat of the kingdom, he put to death all the family of Baasha: not one male child of his relations or his friends kept his life.

12. So Zimri put to death all the family of Baasha, so that the word which the Lord said against him by the mouth of Jehu the prophet came about;

13. Because of all the sins of Baasha, and the sins of Elah his son, which they did and made Israel do, moving the Lord, the God of Israel, to wrath by their foolish acts.

14. Now the rest of the acts of Elah, and all he did, are they not recorded in the book of the history of the kings of Israel?

15. In the twenty-seventh year of Asa, king of Judah, Zimri was king for seven days in Tirzah. Now the people were attacking Gibbethon in the land of the Philistines.

16. And news came to the people in the tents that Zimri had made a secret design and had put the king to death: so all Israel made Omri, the captain of the army, king that day in the tents.

17. Then Omri went up from Gibbethon, with all the army of Israel, and they made an attack on Tirzah, shutting in the town on every side.

18. And when Zimri saw that the town was taken, he went into the inner room of the king's house, and burning the house over his head, came to his end,

19. Because of his sin in doing evil in the eyes of the Lord, in going in the way of Jeroboam and in his sin which he made Israel do.

20. Now the rest of the acts of Zimri, and the secret design he made, are they not recorded in the book of the history of the kings of Israel?

21. Then there was a division among the people of Israel; half the people were for making Tibni, son of Ginath, king, and half were supporting Omri.

22. But the supporters of Omri overcame those who were on the side of Tibni, the son of Ginath; and death came to Tibni and to his brother Joram at that time: and Omri became king in the place of Tibni.

23. In the thirty-first year of Asa, king of Judah, Omri became king over Israel, and he was king for twelve years; for six years he was ruling in Tirzah.

24. He got the hill Samaria from Shemer for the price of two talents of silver, and he made a town there, building it on the hill and naming it Samaria, after Shemer the owner of the hill.

25. And Omri did evil in the eyes of the Lord, even worse than all those before him,

26. Copying all the evil ways of Jeroboam, the son of Nebat, and all the sins he did and made Israel do, moving the Lord, the God of Israel, to wrath by their foolish ways.

27. Now the rest of the acts which Omri did, and his great power, are they not recorded in the book of the history of the kings of Israel?

28. So Omri went to rest with his fathers, and was put into the earth in Samaria; and Ahab his son became king in his place.

29. In the thirty-eighth year that Asa was king of Judah, Ahab, the son of Omri, became king over Israel; and Ahab was king in Samaria for twenty-two years.

30. And Ahab, the son of Omri, did evil in the eyes of the Lord, even worse than all who went before him.

31. And as if copying the evil ways of Jeroboam, the son of Nebat, was a small thing for him, he took as his wife Jezebel, daughter of Ethbaal, king of Zidon, and became a servant and worshipper of Baal.

32. And he put up an altar for Baal in the house of Baal which he had made in Samaria.

33. And Ahab made an image of Asherah and did more than all the kings of Israel before him to make the Lord, the God of Israel, angry.

34. In his days Hiel made Jericho; he put its base in position at the price of Abiram, his oldest son, and he put its doors in place at the price of his youngest son Segub; even as the Lord had said by Joshua, the son of Nun.
