1 H8083 Now in the eighteenth H8141 year H4428 of king H3379 Jeroboam H1121 the son H5028 of Nebat H4427 reigned H38 Abijam H3063 over 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 H2403 in all the sins H1 of his father, H6213 which 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 H1732 Nevertheless for David's H3068 sake did the Lord H430 his God H5414 give H5216 him a lamp H3389 in Jerusalem, H6965 to set up H1121 his son H310 after H5975 him, and to establish H3389 Jerusalem:
5 H1732 Because David H6213 did H3477 that which was right H5869 in the eyes H3068 of the Lord, H5493 and turned not aside H6680 from any thing that he commanded H3117 him all the days H2416 of his life, H1697 save only in the matter H223 of Uriah H2850 the Hittite.
6 H4421 And there was war H7346 between Rehoboam H3379 and Jeroboam H3117 all the days H2416 of his life.
7 H3499 Now the rest H1697 of the acts H38 of Abijam, H6213 and all that he did, H3789 are they not written H5612 in the book H1697 of the chronicles H4428 of the kings H3063 of Judah? H4421 And there was war H38 between 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 in his stead.
9 H6242 And in the twentieth H8141 year H3379 of Jeroboam H4428 king H3478 of Israel H4427 reigned H609 Asa H3063 over 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 away H6945 the sodomites H776 out of the land, H5493 and removed H1544 all the idols H1 that his fathers H6213 had made.
13 H4601 And also Maachah H517 his mother, H5493 even her he removed H1377 from being queen, H6213 because 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 places H5493 were not removed: H609 nevertheless Asa's H3824 heart H8003 was perfect H3068 with the Lord H3117 all his days.
15 H935 And he brought H6944 in the things H1 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 H609 between Asa H1201 and Baasha H4428 king H3478 of Israel H3117 all their days.
17 H1201 And Baasha H4428 king H3478 of Israel H5927 went up H3063 against Judah, H1129 and built H7414 Ramah, H5414 that he might not allow H3318 any to go out H935 or come in H609 to Asa H4428 king H3063 of Judah.
18 H609 Then Asa H3947 took H3701 all 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 Ben–hadad, H1121 the son H2886 of Tabrimon, H1121 the son H2383 of Hezion, H4428 king H758 of Syria, H3427 that lived H1834 at Damascus, H559 saying,
19 H1285 There is a covenant H1 between me and you, and between my father H1 and your father: H7971 behold, I have sent H7810 unto you a present H3701 of silver H2091 and gold; H3212 come H6565 and break H1285 your covenant H1201 with Baasha H4428 king H3478 of Israel, H5927 that he may depart from me.
20 H1130 So Ben–hadad H8085 listened H4428 unto king H609 Asa, H7971 and sent H8269 the captains H2428 of the hosts H5892 which he had against the cities H3478 of Israel, H5221 and struck H5859 Ijon, H1835 and Dan, H62 and Abel–beth–maachah, H3672 and all Cinneroth, H776 with all the land H5321 of Naphtali.
21 H1201 And it came to pass, when Baasha H8085 heard H2308 there, that he left off H1129 building H7414 of Ramah, H3427 and lived H8656 in Tirzah.
22 H4428 Then king H609 Asa H8085 made a proclamation H3063 throughout all Judah; H5355 none was exempted: H5375 and they took H68 away the stones H7414 of Ramah, H6086 and the timber H1201 there, with which 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 H1697 of all the acts H609 of Asa, H1369 and all his might, H6213 and all that he did, H5892 and the cities H1129 which he built, H3789 are they not written H5612 in the book H1697 of the chronicles H4428 of the kings H3063 of Judah? H6256 Nevertheless in the time H2209 of his old age H2470 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 in his stead.
25 H5070 And Nadab H1121 the son H3379 of Jeroboam H4427 began to reign H3478 over Israel H8147 in the second H8141 year H609 of Asa H4428 king H3063 of Judah, H4427 and reigned H3478 over 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 H3478 with which 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 H1201 against him; and Baasha H5221 struck H1405 him at Gibbethon, H6430 which belonged to the Philistines; H5070 for Nadab H3478 and all 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 kill H4427 him, and reigned in his stead.
29 H4427 And it came to pass, when he reigned, H5221 that he struck H1004 all the house H3379 of Jeroboam; H7604 he left H3379 not to Jeroboam H5397 any that breathed, H8045 until he had destroyed H1697 him, according unto the saying H3068 of the Lord, H1696 which he spoke H3027 by H5650 his servant H281 Ahijah H7888 the Shilonite:
30 H2403 Because of the sins H3379 of Jeroboam H2398 which he sinned, H3478 and which he made Israel H2398 sin, H3708 by his provocation H3068 with which he provoked the Lord H430 God H3478 of Israel H3707 to anger.
31 H3499 Now the rest H1697 of the acts H5070 of Nadab, H6213 and all that he did, H3789 are they not written H5612 in the book H1697 of the chronicles H4428 of the kings H3478 of Israel?
32 H4421 And there was war H609 between Asa H1201 and Baasha H4428 king H3478 of Israel H3117 all 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 H3478 over all Israel H8656 in Tirzah, H6242 twenty H702 and four H8141 years.
