2 Kings 14


Amaziah Reigns in Judah

In [2year 1the second] of Joash son of Jehoahaz king of Israel, [6reigned 1Amaziah 2son 3of Joash 4king 5of Judah]. [2a son 3being twenty 4and 5five 6years old 1He was] in his reigning. And twenty and nine years he reigned in Jerusalem. And the name of his mother was Jehoaddan of Jerusalem. And he did upright in the eyes of the  lord, only not as David his father. According to all as much as [3did 1Joash 2his father] he did. Only the high places he did not remove, and still the people sacrificed and burned incense in the high places. And it came to pass when [3grew strong 1the 2kingdom] in his hand, that he struck his servants, the ones striking his father. And the sons of the ones striking he did not put to death, as it is written upon the scroll of the law of Moses, as the  lord gave charge, saying, [2shall not die 1Fathers] for the sons, and the sons shall not die for the fathers, but only each for his sin shall he die. He struck Edom in Gemela -- ten thousand. And he seized Rock in the war, and he called its name, Joktheel until this day. Then Amaziah sent messengers to Joash son of Jehoahaz son of Jehu king of Israel, saying, Come, we should see faces. And [4sent 1Joash 2king 3of Israel] to Amaziah king of Judah, saying, The thorn in Lebanon sent to the cedar in Lebanon, saying, Give your daughter to my son for a wife! And [3went through 1the 2wild beasts] the field in Lebanon, and trampled upon the thorn. 10 Having beaten you struck Edom, and [2encouraged you 1your heart]. Be glorified sitting down in your house. And why do you contend in your evil, that you shall fall and Judah with you?

War Between Judah and Israel

11 And [2did not 3hearken 1Amaziah]. And [4ascended 1Joash 2king 3of Israel], and [6saw 7faces 1he 2and 3Amaziah 4king 5of Judah] in Beth-shemesh of Judea. 12 And Judah failed from in front of Israel, and [2fled 1each man] to his tent. 13 And [5Amaziah 6son 7of Joash 8son 9of Ahaziah 10king 11of Judah 4seized 1Joash 2king 3of Israel] in Beth-shemesh. And he came into Jerusalem and demolished in the wall of Jerusalem at the gate of Ephraim unto the gate of the corner -- four hundred cubits. 14 And he took the gold, and the silver, and all the items being found in the house of the  lord, and in the treasuries of the house of the king, and of the sons of the alliances, and he returned unto Samaria. 15 And the rest of the words of Joash, as much as he did in his domination in which he waged war with Amaziah king of Judah, are not these written upon the scroll of the words of the days of the kings of Israel?

Death of Amaziah

16 And Joash slept with his fathers, and they entombed him in Samaria with the kings of Israel. And [3reigned 1Jeroboam 2his son] instead of him. 17 And [6lived 1Amaziah 2son 3of Joash 4king 5of Judah] after the dying of Joash son of Jehoahaz king of Israel fifteen years. 18 And the rest of the words of Amaziah, and all as much as he did, behold are not these written upon the scroll of the words of the days of the kings of Judah? 19 And they confederated against him with a confederation in Jerusalem. And he fled unto Lachish. And they sent after him unto Lachish, and put him to death there. 20 And they lifted him upon the horses, and he was entombed in Jerusalem with his fathers in the city of David.

Jeroboam Reigns in Israel

21 And [5took 1all 2the 3people 4of Judah] Azariah, and he was a son sixteen years old, and they gave him reign instead of his father Amaziah. 22 He built Elath, and returned it to Judah after [3slept 1the 2king] with his fathers. 23 In [2year 1the fifteenth] of Amaziah son of Joash king of Judah, [4reigned 1Jeroboam 2son 3of Joash] over Israel in Samaria -- forty and one year. 24 And he did the wicked thing before the  lord. He did not abstain from all of the sins of Jeroboam son of Nebat, who led Israel into sin. 25 He restored the boundary of Israel from the entrance of Hamath unto the sea of the Arabah, according to the saying of the  lord God of Israel, who spoke by the hand of his servant Jonah, son of Amittai, the prophet, the one from out of Gath-hepher. 26 For the  lord beheld the humiliation of Israel, [2bitter 1that it was exceedingly], and very few, and being held together, and being depleted, and being abandoned, and there was no one helping Israel. 27 And [2did not speak 1the  lord] to wipe away the name of Israel from beneath heaven. And he delivered them by the hand of Jeroboam son of Joash. 28 And the rest of the words of Jeroboam, and all as much as he did, and his dominations, as much as he waged war, and as much as he returned Damascus and Hamath to Judah in Israel, behold are not these written upon the scroll of the words of the days of the kings of Israel? 29 And Jeroboam slept with his fathers with the kings of Israel. And [3reigned 1Zechariah 2his son] instead of him.
