1 H8083 Now in the eighteenth H6240 H8141 year H4428 of king H3379 Jeroboam H1121 the son H5028 of Nebat H4427 reigned H38 Abijam H5921 over H3063 Judah.
2 H7969 Three H8141 years H4427 reigned H3389 he in Jerusalem. H517 and his mother’s H8034 name H4601 was Maachah, H1323 the daughter H53 of Abishalom.
3 H3212 And he walked H3605 in all H2403 the sins H1 of his father, H834 which H6213 he had done H6440 before H3824 him: and his heart H8003 was not perfect H3068 with the LORD H430 his God, H3824 as the heart H1732 of David H1 his father.
4 H3588 Nevertheless H1732 for David’s H4616 sake H3068 did the LORD H430 his God H5414 give H5216 him a lamp H3389 in Jerusalem, H6965 to set H1121 up his son H310 after H5975 him, and to establish H3389 Jerusalem:
5 H834 Because H1732 David H6213 did H3477 that which was right H5869 in the eyes H3068 of the LORD, H5493 and turned H3605 not aside from any H6680 thing that he commanded H3605 him all H3117 the days H2416 of his life, H7535 save only H1697 in the matter H223 of Uriah H2850 the Hittite.
6 H4421 And there was war H996 between H7346 Rehoboam H3379 and Jeroboam H3605 all H3117 the days H2416 of his life.
7 H3499 Now the rest H1697 of the acts H38 of Abijam, H3605 and all H6213 that he did, H3789 are they not written H5612 in the book H1697 of the chronicles H3117 H4428 of the kings H3063 of Judah? H4421 And there was war H996 between H38 Abijam H3379 and Jeroboam.
8 H38 And Abijam H7901 slept H1 with his fathers; H6912 and they buried H5892 him in the city H1732 of David: H609 and Asa H1121 his son H4427 reigned H8478 in his stead.
9 H6242 And in the twentieth H8141 year H3379 of Jeroboam H4428 king H3478 of Israel H4427 reigned H609 Asa H5921 over H3063 Judah.
10 H705 And forty H259 and one H8141 years H4427 reigned H3389 he in Jerusalem. H517 And his mother’s H8034 name H4601 was Maachah, H1323 the daughter H53 of Abishalom.
11 H609 And Asa H6213 did H3477 that which was right H5869 in the eyes H3068 of the LORD, H1732 as did David H1 his father.
12 H5674 And he took H6945 away the sodomites H776 out of the land, H5493 and removed H3605 all H1544 the idols H1 that his fathers H6213 had made.
13 H1571 And also H4601 Maachah H517 his mother, H5493 even her he removed H1377 from being queen, H834 because H6213 she had made H4656 an idol H842 in a grove; H609 and Asa H3772 destroyed H4656 her idol, H8313 and burnt H5158 it by the brook H6939 Kidron.
14 H1116 But the high H5493 places were not removed: H7535 nevertheless H609 Asa’s H3824 heart H8003 was perfect H3068 with the LORD H3605 all H3117 his days.
15 H935 And he brought H1 in the things which his father H6944 had dedicated, H6944 and the things which himself had dedicated, H1004 into the house H3068 of the LORD, H3701 silver, H2091 and gold, H3627 and vessels.
16 H4421 And there was war H996 between H609 Asa H1201 and Baasha H4428 king H3478 of Israel H3605 all H3117 their days.
17 H1201 And Baasha H4428 king H3478 of Israel H5927 went H5921 up against H3063 Judah, H1129 and built H7414 Ramah, H5414 that he might not suffer H3318 any to go H935 out or come H609 in to Asa H4428 king H3063 of Judah.
18 H609 Then Asa H3947 took H3605 all H3701 the silver H2091 and the gold H3498 that were left H214 in the treasures H1004 of the house H3068 of the LORD, H214 and the treasures H4428 of the king’s H1004 house, H5414 and delivered H3027 them into the hand H5650 of his servants: H4428 and king H609 Asa H7971 sent H1130 them to Benhadad, H1121 the son H2886 of Tabrimon, H1121 the son H2383 of Hezion, H4428 king H758 of Syria, H3427 that dwelled H1834 at Damascus, H559 saying,
19 H1285 There is a league H996 between H996 me and you, and between H1 my father H1 and your father: H2009 behold, H7971 I have sent H7810 to you a present H3701 of silver H2091 and gold; H3212 come H6565 and break H1285 your league H1201 with Baasha H4428 king H3478 of Israel, H5927 that he may depart from me.
20 H1130 So Benhadad H8085 listened H4428 to king H609 Asa, H7971 and sent H8269 the captains H2428 of the hosts H834 which H5921 he had against H5892 the cities H3478 of Israel, H5221 and smote H5859 Ijon, H1835 and Dan, H62 and Abelbethmaachah, H3605 and all H3672 Cinneroth, H3605 with all H776 the land H5321 of Naphtali.
21 H1961 And it came H1201 to pass, when Baasha H8085 heard H2308 thereof, that he left H1129 off building H7414 of Ramah, H3427 and dwelled H8656 in Tirzah.
22 H4428 Then king H609 Asa H8085 made a proclamation H3605 throughout all H3063 Judah; H369 none H5355 was exempted: H5375 and they took H68 away the stones H7414 of Ramah, H6086 and the timber H834 thereof, with which H1201 Baasha H1129 had built; H4428 and king H609 Asa H1129 built H1387 with them Geba H1144 of Benjamin, H4709 and Mizpah.
23 H3499 The rest H3605 of all H1697 the acts H609 of Asa, H3605 and all H1369 his might, H3605 and all H6213 that he did, H5892 and the cities H834 which H1129 he built, H3789 are they not written H5612 in the book H1697 of the chronicles H3117 H4428 of the kings H3063 of Judah? H7535 Nevertheless H6256 in the time H2209 of his old H2470 age he was diseased H7272 in his feet.
24 H609 And Asa H7901 slept H1 with his fathers, H6912 and was buried H1 with his fathers H5892 in the city H1732 of David H1 his father: H3092 and Jehoshaphat H1121 his son H4427 reigned H8478 in his stead.
25 H5070 And Nadab H1121 the son H3379 of Jeroboam H4427 began to reign H5921 over H3478 Israel H8147 in the second H8141 year H609 of Asa H4428 king H3063 of Judah, H4427 and reigned H5921 over H3478 Israel H8147 two H8141 years.
26 H6213 And he did H7451 evil H5869 in the sight H3068 of the LORD, H3212 and walked H1870 in the way H1 of his father, H2403 and in his sin H834 with which H3478 he made Israel H2398 to sin.
27 H1201 And Baasha H1121 the son H281 of Ahijah, H1004 of the house H3485 of Issachar, H7194 conspired H5921 against H1201 him; and Baasha H5221 smote H1405 him at Gibbethon, H834 which H6430 belonged to the Philistines; H5070 for Nadab H3605 and all H3478 Israel H6696 laid siege H1405 to Gibbethon.
28 H7969 Even in the third H8141 year H609 of Asa H4428 king H3063 of Judah H1201 did Baasha H4191 slay H4427 him, and reigned H8478 in his stead.
29 H1961 And it came H4427 to pass, when he reigned, H5221 that he smote H3605 all H1004 the house H3379 of Jeroboam; H7604 he left H3379 not to Jeroboam H3605 any H5397 that breathed, H5704 until H8045 he had destroyed H1697 him, according to the saying H3068 of the LORD, H834 which H1696 he spoke H5650 by his servant H281 Ahijah H7888 the Shilonite:
30 H5921 Because H2403 of the sins H3379 of Jeroboam H834 which H2398 he sinned, H834 and which H3478 he made Israel H2398 sin, H3708 by his provocation H834 with which H3068 he provoked the LORD H430 God H3478 of Israel H3707 to anger.
31 H3499 Now the rest H1697 of the acts H5070 of Nadab, H3605 and all H6213 that he did, H3789 are they not written H5612 in the book H1697 of the chronicles H3117 H4428 of the kings H3478 of Israel?
32 H4421 And there was war H996 between H609 Asa H1201 and Baasha H4428 king H3478 of Israel H3605 all H3117 their days.
33 H7969 In the third H8141 year H609 of Asa H4428 king H3063 of Judah H1201 began Baasha H1121 the son H281 of Ahijah H4427 to reign H5921 over H3605 all H3478 Israel H8656 in Tirzah, H6242 twenty H702 and four H8141 years.
