CHAPTER 15

Azariah (Uzziah) Reigns in Judah

In [4year 1the twentieth 2and 3seventh] of Jeroboam king of Israel, [6reigned 1Azariah 2son 3of Amaziah 4king 5of Judah]. [2a son 3being sixteen 4years old 1He was] in his reign, and fifty-two years he reigned in Jerusalem. And the name of his mother was Jecholiah of Jerusalem. And he did the upright thing in the eyes of the  lord according to all as much as [3did 1Amaziah 2his father]. Only the high places he did not remove, and still the people sacrificed and burned incense in the high places. And the  lord touched the king, and he was being leprous until the day of his death, and he reigned in a house apart. And Jotham son of the king was over the house, judging the people of the land. And the rest of the words of Azariah 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?

Jotham Reigns in Judah: Zechariah Reigns in Israel

And Azariah slept with his fathers. And they entombed him with his fathers in the city of David. And [3reigned 2Jotham 1his son] instead of him. In [4year 1the thirtieth 2and 3eighth] of Azariah king of Judah, [4reigned 1Zechariah 2son 3of Jeroboam] over Israel in Samaria six months. And he did the wicked thing in the eyes of the  lord as did his fathers. He did not abstain from the sins of Jeroboam son of Nebat, who led Israel into sin.

Shallum Reigns in Israel

10 And [4confederated 5against 6him 1Shallum 2son 3of Jabesh], and he struck him in Keblaam, and killed him, and reigned instead of him. 11 And the rest of the words of Zechariah, behold, these are written upon the scroll of the words of the days of the kings of Israel. 12 This is the word of the  lord which he spoke to Jehu, saying, [2sons 4unto the fourth generation 3shall sit 1Your] upon the throne of Israel. And it became so. 13 And Shallum son of Jabesh reigned in [4year 1the thirtieth 2and 3ninth] of Azariah king of Judah, and he reigned a month of days in Samaria. 14 And [6ascended 1Menahem 2son 3of Gadi 4from 5Tirzah], and came into Samaria, and he struck Shallum son of Jabesh in Samaria, and he killed him, and he reigned instead of him. 15 And the rest of the words of Shallum, and of his confederacy which he confederated, behold, these are written upon the scroll of the words of the days of the kings of Israel. 16 Then Menahem struck Tiphsah, and all the ones in it, and its borders from Tirzah; for it did not open up to him, and he struck it; and the ones [2one in the womb 1having] he tore asunder.

Menahem Reigns in Israel

17 In [4year 1the thirtieth 2and 3ninth] of Azariah king of Judah [4reigned 1Menahem 2son 3of Gadi] over Israel in Samaria ten years. 18 And he did the wicked thing in the eyes of the  lord. He did not abstain from the sins of Jeroboam son of Nebat, who led Israel to sin. 19 In his days [4ascended 1Pul 2king 3of the Assyrians] upon the land. And Menahem gave to Pul a thousand talents of silver [2to be 1for his hand] with him, to strengthen his kingdom in his hand. 20 And Menahem brought forth the silver for Israel, excised upon every mighty man in strength, to give to the king of the Assyrians -- fifty shekels for the [2man 1one]. And [4returned 1the 2king 3of the Assyrians] and did not station there in the land. 21 And the rest of the words of Menahem, 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 Israel?

Pekahiah Reigns in Israel

22 And Menahem slept with his fathers. And [3reigned 1Pekahiah 2his son] instead of him. 23 In [2year 1the fiftieth] of Azariah king of Judah, [4reigned 1Pekahiah 2son 3of Menahem] over Israel in Samaria two years. 24 And he did the wicked thing in the eyes of the  lord. He did not abstain from the sins of Jeroboam son of Nebat, who led Israel into sin. 25 And [5confederated 6against 7him 1Pekah 2son 3of Remaliah 4his tribune], and he struck him in Samaria, before the house of the king, with Argob, and with Arieh, and with him fifty men from the sons of the Gileadites. And he killed him, and reigned instead of him. 26 And the rest of the words of Pekahiah, and all as much as he did, behold, these are written upon the scroll of the words of the days of the kings of Israel.

Pekah Reigns in Israel

27 In [4year 1the fiftieth 2and 3second] of Azariah king of Judah [4reigned 1Pekah 2son 3of Remaliah] over Israel in Samaria twenty years. 28 And he did the wicked thing in the eyes of the  lord. He did not abstain from all the sins of Jeroboam son of Nebat, who led Israel into sin.

Tiglath-pileser comes Against Israel

29 In the days of Pekah king of Israel came Tiglath-pileser king of the Assyrians, and he took Ijon, and Abel-beth-maachah, and Janoah, and Kenez, and Hazor, and Gilead, and Galilee, all the land of Naphtali, and he resettled them among Assyria. 30 And [4confederated 5a confederation 1Hoshea 2son 3of Elah] against Pekah son of Remaliah, and he struck him, and killed him, and he reigned instead of him in [2year 1the twentieth] of Jotham son of Uzziah. 31 And the rest of the words of Pekah, and all as much as he did, behold, these are written upon the scroll of the words of the days of the kings of Israel. 32 In [2year 1the second] of Pekah son of Remaliah king of Israel [6reigned 1Jotham 2son 3of Uzziah 4king 5of Judah]. 33 [2a son 3being twenty 4and 5five 6years old 1He was] in his taking reign, and sixteen years he reigned in Jerusalem. And the name of his mother was Jerusha, daughter of Zadok. 34 And he did upright in the eyes of the  lord according to all as much as [3did 1Uzziah 2his father]. 35 Only the high places he did not remove, and still the people sacrificed and burned incense on the high places. He built the gate of the house of the  lord -- the upper. 36 And the rest of the words of Jotham 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? 37 In those days the  lord began to send against Judah Rezin king of Syria, and Pekah son of Remaliah. 38 And Jotham slept with his fathers, and they entombed him with his fathers in the city of David his father. And [3reigned 1Ahaz 2his son] instead of him.
