Now JehoramH3088 the sonH1121 of AhabH256 began to reignH4427 overH5921 IsraelH3478 in SamariaH8111 the eighteenthH6240 yearH8141 of JehoshaphatH3092 kingH4428 of Judah,H3063 and reignedH4427 twelveH8147 H6240 years.H8141
And he workedH6213 evilH7451 in the sightH5869 of the LORD;H3068 but not like his father,H1 and like his mother:H517 for he putH5493 awayH5493 the imageH4676 of BaalH1168 that his fatherH1 had made.H6213
NeverthelessH7535 he joinedH1692 to the sinsH2403 of JeroboamH3379 the sonH1121 of Nebat,H5028 whichH834 made IsraelH3478 to sin;H2398 he departedH5493 not therefrom.
And MeshaH4337 kingH4428 of MoabH4124 was a sheep master,H5349 and renderedH7725 to the kingH4428 of IsraelH3478 an hundredH3967 thousandH505 lambs,H3733 and an hundredH3967 thousandH505 rams,H352 with the wool.H6785
But it cameH1961 to pass, when AhabH256 was dead,H4194 that the kingH4428 of MoabH4124 rebelledH6586 against the kingH4428 of Israel.H3478
And kingH4428 JehoramH3088 wentH3318 out of SamariaH8111 the sameH1931 time,H3117 and numberedH6485 allH3605 Israel.H3478
And he wentH3212 and sentH7971 to JehoshaphatH3092 the kingH4428 of Judah,H3063 saying,H559 The kingH4428 of MoabH4124 has rebelledH6586 against me: will you goH3212 with me againstH413 MoabH4124 to battle?H4421 And he said,H559 I will goH5927 up: I am as you are, my peopleH5971 as your people,H5971 and my horsesH5483 as your horses.H5483
And he said,H559 WhichH335 H2088 wayH1870 shall we goH5927 up? And he answered,H559 The wayH1870 through the wildernessH4057 of Edom.H123
So the kingH4428 of IsraelH3478 went,H3212 and the kingH4428 of Judah,H3063 and the kingH4428 of Edom:H123 and they fetched a compassH5437 of sevenH7651 days'H3117 journey:H1870 and there was noH3808 waterH4325 for the host,H4264 and for the cattleH929 that followedH7272 them.
And the kingH4428 of IsraelH3478 said,H559 Alas!H162 that the LORDH3068 has calledH7121 theseH428 threeH7969 kingsH4428 together, to deliverH5414 them into the handH3027 of Moab!H4124
But JehoshaphatH3092 said,H559 Is there not hereH6311 a prophetH5030 of the LORD,H3068 that we may inquireH1875 of the LORDH3068 by him? And oneH259 of the kingH4428 of Israel'sH3478 servantsH5650 answeredH6030 and said,H559 HereH6311 is ElishaH477 the sonH1121 of Shaphat,H8202 whichH834 pouredH3332 waterH4325 onH5921 the handsH3027 of Elijah.H452
And JehoshaphatH3092 said,H559 The wordH1697 of the LORDH3068 is with him. So the kingH4428 of IsraelH3478 and JehoshaphatH3092 and the kingH4428 of EdomH123 wentH3381 downH3381 to him.
And ElishaH477 saidH559 to the kingH4428 of Israel,H3478 WhatH4100 have I to do with you? getH3212 you to the prophetsH5030 of your father,H1 and to the prophetsH5030 of your mother.H517 And the kingH4428 of IsraelH3478 saidH559 to him, No:H408 for the LORDH3068 has calledH7121 theseH428 threeH7969 kingsH4428 together, to deliverH5414 them into the handH3027 of Moab.H4124
And ElishaH477 said,H559 As the LORDH3068 of hostsH6635 lives,H2416 beforeH6440 whomH834 I stand,H5975 surely,H3588 were it not that I regardH5375 the presenceH6440 of JehoshaphatH3092 the kingH4428 of Judah,H3063 I would not lookH5027 towardH413 you, norH518 seeH7200 you.
But nowH6258 bringH3947 me a minstrel.H5059 And it cameH1961 to pass, when the minstrelH5059 played,H5059 that the handH3027 of the LORDH3068 cameH1961 on him.
And he said,H559 ThusH3541 saidH559 the LORD,H3068 MakeH6213 thisH2088 valleyH5158 full of ditches.H1356
For thusH3541 saidH559 the LORD,H3068 You shall not seeH7200 wind,H7307 neitherH3808 shall you seeH7200 rain;H1653 yet that valleyH5158 shall be filledH4390 with water,H4325 that you may drink,H8354 both you, and your cattle,H4735 and your beasts.H929
And thisH2063 is but a lightH7043 thing in the sightH5869 of the LORD:H3068 he will deliverH5414 the MoabitesH4124 also into your hand.H3027
And you shall smiteH5221 everyH3605 fencedH4013 city,H5892 and everyH3605 choiceH4005 city,H5892 and shall fellH5307 everyH3605 goodH2896 tree,H6086 and stopH5640 allH3605 wellsH4599 of water,H4325 and marH3510 everyH3605 goodH2896 pieceH2513 of land with stones.H68
And it cameH1961 to pass in the morning,H1242 when the meat offeringH4503 was offered,H5927 that, behold,H2009 there cameH935 waterH4325 by the wayH1870 of Edom,H123 and the countryH776 was filledH4390 with water.H4325
And when allH3605 the MoabitesH4124 heardH8085 that the kingsH4428 were comeH5927 up to fightH3898 against them, they gatheredH6817 allH3605 that were ableH2296 to putH2296 on armor,H2290 and upward,H4605 and stoodH5975 in the border.H1366
And they roseH7925 up earlyH7925 in the morning,H1242 and the sunH8121 shoneH2224 on the water,H4325 and the MoabitesH4124 sawH7200 the waterH4325 on the otherH5048 sideH5048 as redH122 as blood:H1818
And they said,H559 ThisH2088 is blood:H1818 the kingsH4428 are surely slain,H2717 and they have smittenH5221 oneH376 another:H7453 nowH6258 therefore, Moab,H4124 to the spoil.H7998
And when they cameH935 to the campH4264 of Israel,H3478 the IsraelitesH3478 roseH6965 up and smoteH5221 the Moabites,H4124 so that they fledH5127 beforeH6440 them: but they wentH5221 forward smitingH5221 the Moabites,H4124 even in their country.
And they beatH2040 downH2040 the cities,H5892 and on everyH3605 goodH2896 pieceH2513 of land castH7993 every manH376 his stone,H68 and filledH4390 it; and they stoppedH5640 allH3605 the wellsH4599 of water,H4325 and felledH5307 allH3605 the goodH2896 trees:H6086 only in KirharasethH7025 leftH7604 they the stonesH68 thereof; however, the slingersH7051 wentH5437 aboutH5437 it, and smoteH5221 it.
And when the kingH4428 of MoabH4124 sawH7200 that the battleH4421 was too soreH2388 for him, he tookH3947 with him sevenH7651 hundredH3967 menH376 that drewH8025 swords,H2719 to breakH1234 throughH1234 even to the kingH4428 of Edom:H123 but they couldH3201 not.
Then he tookH3947 his oldestH1060 sonH1121 that should have reignedH4427 in his stead,H8478 and offeredH5927 him for a burntH5930 offering on the wall.H2346 And there was greatH1419 indignationH7110 againstH5921 Israel:H3478 and they departedH5265 from him, and returnedH7725 to their own land.H776
