And in the seventhH7637 yearH8141 JehoiadaH3111 strengthenedH2388 himself, and tookH3947 the captainsH8269 of hundreds,H3967 AzariahH5838 the sonH1121 of Jeroham,H3395 and IshmaelH3458 the sonH1121 of Jehohanan,H3076 and AzariahH5838 the sonH1121 of Obed,H5744 and MaaseiahH4641 the sonH1121 of Adaiah,H5718 and ElishaphatH478 the sonH1121 of Zichri,H2147 into covenantH1285 with him.
And they wentH5437 aboutH5437 in Judah,H3063 and gatheredH6908 the LevitesH3881 out of allH3605 the citiesH5892 of Judah,H3063 and the chiefH7218 of the fathersH1 of Israel,H3478 and they cameH935 to Jerusalem.H3389
And allH3605 the congregationH6951 madeH3772 a covenantH1285 with the kingH4428 in the houseH1004 of God.H430 And he saidH559 to them, Behold,H2009 the king'sH4428 sonH1121 shall reign,H4427 as the LORDH3068 has saidH1696 of the sonsH1121 of David.H1732
ThisH2088 is the thingH1697 that you shall do;H6213 A thirdH7992 part of you enteringH935 on the sabbath,H7676 of the priestsH3548 and of the Levites,H3881 shall be portersH7778 of the doors;H5592
And a thirdH7992 part shall be at the king'sH4428 house;H1004 and a thirdH7992 part at the gateH8179 of the foundation:H3247 and allH3605 the peopleH5971 shall be in the courtsH2691 of the houseH1004 of the LORD.H3068
But let noneH408 comeH935 into the houseH1004 of the LORD,H3068 saveH3588 H518 the priests,H3548 and they that ministerH8334 of the Levites;H3881 they shall goH935 in, for they are holy:H6944 but allH3605 the peopleH5971 shall keepH8104 the watchH4931 of the LORD.H3068
And the LevitesH3881 shall compassH5362 the kingH4428 roundH5439 about, every manH376 with his weaponsH3627 in his hand;H3027 and whoever else comesH935 into the house,H1004 he shall be put to death:H4191 but be you with the kingH4428 when he comesH935 in, and when he goesH3318 out.
So the LevitesH3881 and allH3605 JudahH3063 didH6213 according to allH3605 things that JehoiadaH3111 the priestH3548 had commanded,H6680 and tookH3947 every manH376 his menH582 that were to comeH935 in on the sabbath,H7676 with them that were to goH3318 out on the sabbath:H7676 for JehoiadaH3111 the priestH3548 dismissedH6362 not the courses.H4256
Moreover JehoiadaH3111 the priestH3548 deliveredH5414 to the captainsH8269 of hundredsH3967 spears,H2595 and bucklers,H4043 and shields,H7982 that had been kingH4428 David's,H1732 whichH834 were in the houseH1004 of God.H430
And he setH5975 allH3605 the people,H5971 every manH376 having his weaponH7973 in his hand,H3027 from the rightH3233 sideH3802 of the templeH1004 to the leftH8042 sideH3802 of the temple,H1004 along by the altarH4196 and the temple,H1004 by the kingH4428 roundH5439 about.
Then they broughtH3318 out the king'sH4428 son,H1121 and putH5414 on him the crown,H5145 and gave him the testimony,H5715 and made him king.H4427 And JehoiadaH3111 and his sonsH1121 anointedH4886 him, and said,H559 God saveH2421 the king.H4428
Now when AthaliahH6271 heardH8085 the noiseH6963 of the peopleH5971 runningH7323 and praisingH1984 the king,H4428 she cameH935 to the peopleH5971 into the houseH1004 of the LORD:H3068
And she looked,H7200 and, behold,H2009 the kingH4428 stoodH5975 atH5921 his pillarH5982 at the enteringH3996 in, and the princesH8269 and the trumpetsH2689 by the king:H4428 and allH3605 the peopleH5971 of the landH776 rejoiced,H8056 and soundedH8628 with trumpets,H2689 alsoH1571 the singersH7891 with instrumentsH3627 of music,H7892 and such as taughtH3045 to singH1984 praise.H1984 Then AthaliahH6271 rentH7167 her clothes,H899 and said,H559 Treason,H7195 Treason.H7195
Then JehoiadaH3111 the priestH3548 broughtH3318 out the captainsH8269 of hundredsH3967 that were setH6485 over the host,H2428 and saidH559 to them, HaveH3318 her forthH3318 of the ranges:H7713 and whoever followsH935 H310 her, let him be slainH4191 with the sword.H2719 For the priestH3548 said,H559 SlayH4191 her not in the houseH1004 of the LORD.H3068
So they laidH7760 handsH3027 on her; and when she was comeH935 to the enteringH3996 of the horseH5483 gateH8179 by the king'sH4428 house,H1004 they slewH4191 her there.H8033
And JehoiadaH3111 madeH3772 a covenantH1285 betweenH996 him, and betweenH996 allH3605 the people,H5971 and betweenH996 the king,H4428 that they should be the LORD'sH3068 people.H5971
Then allH3605 the peopleH5971 wentH935 to the houseH1004 of Baal,H1168 and brokeH5422 it down,H5422 and brokeH7665 his altarsH4196 and his imagesH6754 in pieces, and slewH2026 MattanH4977 the priestH3548 of BaalH1168 beforeH6440 the altars.H4196
Also JehoiadaH3111 appointedH7760 the officesH6486 of the houseH1004 of the LORDH3068 by the handH3027 of the priestsH3548 the Levites,H3881 whomH834 DavidH1732 had distributedH2505 in the houseH1004 of the LORD,H3068 to offerH5927 the burntH5930 offerings of the LORD,H3068 as it is writtenH3789 in the lawH8451 of Moses,H4872 with rejoicingH8057 and with singing,H7892 as it was ordained by David.H1732
And he setH5975 the portersH7778 atH5921 the gatesH8179 of the houseH1004 of the LORD,H3068 that noneH3808 which was uncleanH2931 in anyH3605 thingH1697 should enterH935 in.
And he tookH3947 the captainsH8269 of hundreds,H3967 and the nobles,H117 and the governorsH4910 of the people,H5971 and allH3605 the peopleH5971 of the land,H776 and broughtH3381 downH3381 the kingH4428 from the houseH1004 of the LORD:H3068 and they cameH935 throughH8432 the highH5945 gateH8179 into the king'sH4428 house,H1004 and setH3427 the kingH4428 on the throneH3678 of the kingdom.H4467
And allH3605 the peopleH5971 of the landH776 rejoiced:H8055 and the cityH5892 was quiet,H8252 after that they had slainH4191 AthaliahH6271 with the sword.H2719
