In the seventeenthH7651 H6240 yearH8141 of PekahH6492 the sonH1121 of RemaliahH7425 AhazH271 the sonH1121 of JothamH3147 kingH4428 of JudahH3063 began to reign.H4427
TwentyH6242 yearsH8141 oldH1121 was AhazH271 when he began to reign,H4427 and reignedH4427 sixteenH8337 H6240 yearsH8141 in Jerusalem,H3389 and didH6213 not that which was rightH3477 in the sightH5869 of the LORDH3068 his God,H430 like DavidH1732 his father.H1
But he walkedH3212 in the wayH1870 of the kingsH4428 of Israel,H3478 yes,H1571 and made his sonH1121 to passH5674 through the fire,H784 according to the abominationsH8441 of the heathen,H1471 whomH834 the LORDH3068 castH3423 out from beforeH6440 the childrenH1121 of Israel.H3478
And he sacrificedH2076 and burntH6999 incenseH6999 in the highH1116 places, and onH5921 the hills,H1389 and underH8478 everyH3605 greenH7488 tree.H6086
ThenH227 RezinH7526 kingH4428 of SyriaH758 and PekahH6492 sonH1121 of RemaliahH7425 kingH4428 of IsraelH3478 cameH5927 up to JerusalemH3389 to war:H4421 and they besiegedH6696 Ahaz,H271 but couldH3201 not overcomeH3898 him.
At that timeH6256 RezinH7526 kingH4428 of SyriaH758 recoveredH7725 ElathH359 to Syria,H758 and droveH5394 the JewsH3064 from Elath:H359 and the SyriansH758 cameH935 to Elath,H359 and dwelledH3427 thereH8033 to thisH2088 day.H3117
So AhazH271 sentH7971 messengersH4397 to TiglathpileserH8407 kingH4428 of Assyria,H804 saying,H559 I am your servantH5650 and your son:H1121 comeH5927 up, and saveH3467 me out of the handH3709 of the kingH4428 of Syria,H758 and out of the handH3709 of the kingH4428 of Israel,H3478 which riseH6965 up againstH5921 me.
And AhazH271 tookH3947 the silverH3701 and goldH2091 that was foundH4672 in the houseH1004 of the LORD,H3068 and in the treasuresH214 of the king'sH4428 house,H1004 and sentH7971 it for a presentH7810 to the kingH4428 of Assyria.H804
And the kingH4428 of AssyriaH804 listenedH8085 to him: for the kingH4428 of AssyriaH804 wentH5927 up againstH413 Damascus,H1834 and tookH8610 it, and carriedH1540 the people of it captiveH1540 to Kir,H7024 and slewH4191 Rezin.H7526
And kingH4428 AhazH271 wentH3212 to DamascusH1834 to meetH7125 TiglathpileserH8407 kingH4428 of Assyria,H804 and sawH7200 an altarH4196 that was at Damascus:H1834 and kingH4428 AhazH271 sentH7971 to UrijahH223 the priestH3548 the fashionH1823 of the altar,H4196 and the patternH8403 of it, according to allH3605 the workmanshipH4639 thereof.
And UrijahH223 the priestH3548 builtH1129 an altarH4196 according to allH3605 that kingH4428 AhazH271 had sentH7971 from Damascus:H1834 soH3651 UrijahH223 the priestH3548 madeH6213 it againstH5704 kingH4428 AhazH271 cameH935 from Damascus.H1834
And when the kingH4428 was comeH935 from Damascus,H1834 the kingH4428 sawH7200 the altar:H4196 and the kingH4428 approachedH7126 to the altar,H4196 and offeredH5927 thereon.H5921
And he burntH6999 his burntH5930 offering H4503and his meat offering, and pouredH5258 his drinkH5262 offering, and sprinkledH2236 the bloodH1818 of his peaceH8002 offerings, on the altar.H4196
And he broughtH7126 also the brazenH5178 altar,H4196 whichH834 was beforeH6440 the LORD,H3068 from the forefrontH6440 of the house,H1004 from betweenH996 the altarH4196 and the houseH1004 of the LORD,H3068 and putH5414 it onH5921 the northH6828 sideH3409 of the altar.H4196
And kingH4428 AhazH271 commandedH6680 UrijahH223 the priest,H3548 saying,H559 On the greatH1419 altarH4196 burnH6999 the morningH1242 burntH5930 offering, and the eveningH6153 meat offering,H4503 and the king'sH4428 burntH5930 sacrifice, and his meat offering,H4503 with the burntH5930 offering of allH3605 the peopleH5971 of the land,H776 and their meat offering,H4503 and their drinkH5262 offerings; and sprinkleH2236 on it allH3605 the bloodH1818 of the burntH5930 offering, and allH3605 the bloodH1818 of the sacrifice:H2077 and the brazenH5178 altarH4196 shall be for me to inquireH1239 by.
Thus didH6213 UrijahH223 the priest,H3548 according to allH3605 that kingH4428 AhazH271 commanded.H6680
And kingH4428 AhazH271 cutH7112 off the bordersH4526 of the bases,H4350 and removedH5493 the laverH3595 from offH5921 them; and tookH3381 downH3381 the seaH3220 from offH5921 the brazenH5178 oxenH1241 that were underH8478 it, and putH5414 it on the pavementH4837 of stones.H68
And the covertH4329 for the sabbathH7676 that they had builtH1129 in the house,H1004 and the king'sH4428 entryH3996 without,H2435 turnedH5437 he from the houseH1004 of the LORDH3068 for the kingH4428 of Assyria.H804
Now the restH3499 of the actsH1697 of AhazH271 whichH834 he did,H6213 are they not writtenH3789 in the bookH5612 of the chronicles of the kingsH4428 of Judah?H3063
And AhazH271 sleptH7901 with his fathers,H1 and was buriedH6912 with his fathersH1 in the cityH5892 of David:H1732 and HezekiahH2396 his sonH1121 reignedH4427 in his stead.H8478
