2 Kings 16

  1 H7651 H6240 H8141 In the seventeenth H8141 year H6492 of Pekah H1121 the son H7425 of Remaliah H271 Ahaz H1121 the son H3147 of Jotham H4428 king H3063 of Judah H4427 [H8804] began to reign.
  2 H6242 Twenty H8141 years H1121 old H271 was Ahaz H4427 [H8800] when he began to reign, H4427 [H8804] and reigned H8337 H6240 sixteen H8141 years H3389 in Jerusalem, H6213 [H8804] and did H3477 not that which was right H5869 in the eyes H3068 of the LORD H430 his God, H1732 like David H1 his father.
  3 H3212 [H8799] But he walked H1870 in the way H4428 of the kings H3478 of Israel, H1121 and even made his son H5674 [H8689] to pass through H784 the fire, H8441 according to the abominations H1471 of the nations, H3068 whom the LORD H3423 [H8689] cast out H6440 from the face of H1121 the sons H3478 of Israel.
  4 H2076 [H8762] And he sacrificed H6999 [H8762] and burnt incense H1116 in the high places, H1389 and on the hills, H7488 and under every green H6086 tree.
  5 H7526 Then Rezin H4428 king H758 of Syria H6492 and Pekah H1121 son H7425 of Remaliah H4428 king H3478 of Israel H5927 [H8799] came up H3389 to Jerusalem H4421 to war: H6696 [H8799] and they besieged H271 Ahaz, H3201 [H8804] but could H3898 [H8736] not overcome him.
  6 H6256 At that time H7526 Rezin H4428 king H758 of Syria H7725 [H8689] recovered H359 Elath H758 H130 [H8675] to Syria, H5394 [H8762] and drove H3064 the Judeans H359 from Elath: H726 and the Syrians H935 [H8804] came H359 to Elath, H3427 [H8799] and have dwelt H3117 there to this day.
  7 H271 So Ahaz H7971 [H8799] sent H4397 messengers H8407 to Tiglathpileser H4428 king H804 of Assyria, H559 [H8800] saying, H5650 I am thy servant H1121 and thy son: H5927 [H8798] come up, H3467 [H8685] and liberate H3709 me from the palm H4428 of the king H758 of Syria, H3709 and from the palm H4428 of the king H3478 of Israel, H6965 [H8801] who rise up against me.
  8 H271 And Ahaz H3947 [H8799] took H3701 the silver H2091 and gold H4672 [H8737] that was found H1004 in the house H3068 of the LORD, H214 and in the treasuries H4428 of the king's H1004 house, H7971 [H8799] and sent H7810 it for a present H4428 to the king H804 of Assyria.
  9 H4428 And the king H804 of Assyria H8085 [H8799] hearkened H4428 to him: for the king H804 of Assyria H5927 [H8799] went up H1834 against Damascus, H8610 [H8799] and took H1540 [H8686] it, and carried the people of it captive H7024 to Kir, H4191 [H8689] and slew H7526 Rezin.
  10 H4428 And king H271 Ahaz H3212 [H8799] went H1834 to Damascus H7125 [H8800] to meet H8407 Tiglathpileser H4428 king H804 of Assyria, H7200 [H8799] and saw H4196 an altar H1834 that was at Damascus: H4428 and king H271 Ahaz H7971 [H8799] sent H223 to Urijah H3548 the priest H1823 the fashion H4196 of the altar, H8403 and the pattern H4639 of it, according to all the workmanship of it.
  11 H223 And Urijah H3548 the priest H1129 [H8799] built H4196 an altar H4428 according to all that king H271 Ahaz H7971 [H8804] had sent H1834 from Damascus: H223 so Urijah H3548 the priest H6213 [H8804] made H4428 it before king H271 Ahaz H935 [H8800] came H1834 from Damascus.
  12 H4428 And when the king H935 [H8799] had come H1834 from Damascus, H4428 the king H7200 [H8799] saw H4196 the altar: H4428 and the king H7126 [H8799] approached H4196 to the altar, H5927 [H8686] and offered on it.
  13 H6999 [H8686] And he burnt H5930 his burnt offering H4503 and his meat offering, H5258 [H8686] and poured H5262 his drink offering, H2236 [H8799] and sprinkled H1818 the blood H8002 of his peace offerings, H4196 upon the altar.
  14 H7126 [H8686] And he brought H5178 also the brasen H4196 altar, H6440 which was at the face of H3068 the LORD, H6440 from the front H1004 of the house, H4196 from between the altar H1004 and the house H3068 of the LORD, H5414 [H8799] and put H6828 it on the north H3409 side H4196 of the altar.
  15 H4428 And king H271 Ahaz H6680 [H8762] commanded H223 Urijah H3548 the priest, H559 [H8800] saying, H1419 Upon the great H4196 altar H6999 [H8685] burn H1242 the morning H5930 burnt offering, H6153 and the evening H4503 meat offering, H4428 and the king's H5930 burnt sacrifice, H4503 and his meat offering, H5930 with the burnt offering H5971 of all the people H776 of the land, H4503 and their meat offering, H5262 and their drink offerings; H2236 [H8799] and sprinkle H1818 upon it all the blood H5930 of the burnt offering, H1818 and all the blood H2077 of the sacrifice: H5178 and the brasen H4196 altar H1239 [H8763] shall be for me to enquire by.
  16 H6213 [H8799] Thus did H223 Urijah H3548 the priest, H4428 according to all that king H271 Ahaz H6680 [H8765] commanded.
  17 H4428 And king H271 Ahaz H7112 [H8762] cut off H4526 the borders H4350 of the bases, H5493 [H8686] and removed H3595 the laver H3381 [H8689] from off them; and took down H3220 the sea H5178 from off the brasen H1241 oxen H5414 [H8799] that were under it, and put H4837 it upon a pavement H68 of stones.
  18 H4329 H4329 [H8675] And the covered place H7676 for the sabbath H1129 [H8804] that they had built H1004 in the house, H4428 and the king's H3996 entrance H2435 outside, H5437 [H8689] he took H1004 from the house H3068 of the LORD H6440 for H4428 the king H804 of Assyria.
  19 H3499 Now the rest H1697 of the acts H271 of Ahaz H6213 [H8804] which he did, H3789 [H8803] are they not written H5612 in the book H1697 H3117 of the chronicles H4428 of the kings H3063 of Judah?
  20 H271 And Ahaz H7901 [H8799] slept H1 with his fathers, H6912 [H8735] and was buried H1 with his fathers H5892 in the city H1732 of David: H2396 and Hezekiah H1121 his son H4427 [H8799] reigned in his stead.
