2 Kings 3

  1 H3088 Now Jehoram H1121 the son H256 of Ahab H4427 [H8804] began to reign H3478 over Israel H8111 in Samaria H8083 H6240 in the eighteenth H8141 year H3092 of Jehoshaphat H4428 king H3063 of Judah, H4427 [H8799] and reigned H8147 H6240 twelve H8141 years.
  2 H6213 [H8799] And he wrought H7451 evil H5869 in the sight H3068 of the LORD; H1 but not like his father, H517 and like his mother: H5493 [H8686] for he put away H4676 the image H1168 of Baal H1 that his father H6213 [H8804] had made.
  3 H1692 [H8804] Nevertheless he cleaved H2403 to the sins H3379 of Jeroboam H1121 the son H5028 of Nebat, H3478 who made Israel H2398 [H8689] to sin; H5493 [H8804] he departed not from it.
  4 H4338 And Mesha H4428 king H4124 of Moab H5349 was a sheepmaster, H7725 [H8689] and rendered H4428 to the king H3478 of Israel H3967 an hundred H505 thousand H3733 lambs, H3967 and an hundred H505 thousand H352 rams, H6785 with the wool.
  5 H256 But it came to pass, when Ahab H4194 was dead, H4428 that the king H4124 of Moab H6586 [H8799] rebelled H4428 against the king H3478 of Israel.
  6 H4428 And king H3088 Jehoram H3318 [H8799] went out H8111 of Samaria H3117 the same time, H6485 [H8799] and numbered H3478 all Israel.
  7 H3212 [H8799] And he went H7971 [H8799] and sent H3092 to Jehoshaphat H4428 the king H3063 of Judah, H559 [H8800] saying, H4428 The king H4124 of Moab H6586 [H8804] hath rebelled H3212 [H8799] against me: wilt thou go H4124 with me against Moab H4421 to battle? H559 [H8799] And he said, H5927 [H8799] I will go: H5971 I am as thou art, my people H5971 as thy people, H5483 and my horses H5483 as thy horses.
  8 H559 [H8799] And he said, H1870 Which way H5927 [H8799] shall we go up? H559 [H8799] And he answered, H1870 The way H4057 through the wilderness H123 of Edom.
  9 H4428 So the king H3478 of Israel H3212 [H8799] went, H4428 and the king H3063 of Judah, H4428 and the king H123 of Edom: H5437 [H8799] and they made a circuit H7651 of seven H3117 days' H1870 journey: H4325 and there was no water H4264 for the army, H929 and for the cattle H7272 that followed them.
  10 H4428 And the king H3478 of Israel H559 [H8799] said, H162 Alas! H3068 that the LORD H7121 0 hath called H7969 these three H4428 kings H7121 [H8804] together, H5414 [H8800] to deliver H3027 them into the hand H4124 of Moab!
  11 H3092 But Jehoshaphat H559 [H8799] said, H5030 Is there not here a prophet H3068 of the LORD, H1875 [H8799] that we may enquire H3068 of the LORD H259 by him? And one H4428 of the king H3478 of Israel's H5650 servants H6030 [H8799] answered H559 [H8799] and said, H477 Here is Elisha H1121 the son H8202 of Shaphat, H3332 [H8804] who poured H4325 water H3027 on the hands H452 of Elijah.
  12 H3092 And Jehoshaphat H559 [H8799] said, H1697 The word H3068 of the LORD H3426 is H4428 with him. So the king H3478 of Israel H3092 and Jehoshaphat H4428 and the king H123 of Edom H3381 [H8799] went down to him.
  13 H477 And Elisha H559 [H8799] said H4428 to the king H3478 of Israel, H3212 [H8798] What have I to do with thee? go H5030 to the prophets H1 of thy father, H5030 and to the prophets H517 of thy mother. H4428 And the king H3478 of Israel H559 [H8799] said H3068 to him, Nay: for the LORD H7121 0 hath called H7969 these three H4428 kings H7121 [H8804] together, H5414 [H8800] to deliver H3027 them into the hand H4124 of Moab.
  14 H477 And Elisha H559 [H8799] said, H3068 As the LORD H6635 of hosts H2416 liveth, H6440 before H5975 [H8804] whom I stand, H3884 surely, were it not that H5375 [H8802] I regard H6440 the presence H3092 of Jehoshaphat H4428 the king H3063 of Judah, H5027 [H8686] I would not look H7200 [H8799] toward thee, nor see thee.
  15 H3947 [H8798] But now bring H5059 [H8764] me a minstrel. H5059 [H8764] And it came to pass, when the minstrel H5059 [H8763] played, H3027 that the hand H3068 of the LORD came upon him.
  16 H559 [H8799] And he said, H559 [H8804] Thus saith H3068 the LORD, H6213 [H8800] Make H5158 this valley H1356 full of ditches.
  17 H559 [H8804] For thus saith H3068 the LORD, H7200 [H8799] Ye shall not see H7307 wind, H7200 [H8799] neither shall ye see H1653 rain; H5158 yet that valley H4390 [H8735] shall be filled H4325 with water, H8354 [H8804] that ye may drink, H4735 both ye, and your cattle, H929 and your beasts.
  18 H7043 [H8738] And this is but a light thing H5869 in the sight H3068 of the LORD: H5414 [H8804] he will deliver H4124 the Moabites H3027 also into your hand.
  19 H5221 [H8689] And ye shall smite H4013 every fortified H5892 city, H4004 and every choice H5892 city, H5307 [H8686] and shall fell H2896 every good H6086 tree, H5640 [H8799] and stop H4599 all wells H4325 of water, H3510 [H8686] and mar H2896 every good H2513 piece H68 of land with stones.
  20 H1242 And it came to pass in the morning, H4503 when the meat offering H5927 [H8800] was offered, H935 [H8802] that, behold, there came H4325 water H1870 by the way H123 of Edom, H776 and the land H4390 [H8735] was filled H4325 with water.
  21 H4124 And when all the Moabites H8085 [H8804] heard H4428 that the kings H5927 [H8804] were come up H3898 [H8736] to fight H6817 [H8735] against them, they called H2296 [H8802] all that were able to put H2290 on armour, H4605 and upward, H5975 [H8799] and stood H1366 in the border.
  22 H7925 [H8686] And they rose early H1242 in the morning, H8121 and the sun H2224 [H8804] shone H4325 upon the water, H4124 and the Moabites H7200 [H8799] saw H4325 the water H5048 on the other side H122 as red H1818 as blood:
  23 H559 [H8799] And they said, H1818 This is blood: H4428 the kings H2717 [H8715] are surely H2717 [H8738] slain, H5221 [H8686] and they have smitten H376 one H7453 another: H4124 now therefore, Moab, H7998 to the spoil.
  24 H935 [H8799] And when they came H4264 to the camp H3478 of Israel, H3478 the Israelites H6965 [H8799] rose H5221 [H8686] and smote H4124 the Moabites, H5127 [H8799] so that they fled H6440 before H5221 [H8686] them: but they went forward H5221 [H8687] smiting H4124 the Moabites, even in their country.
  25 H2040 [H8799] And they beat down H5892 the cities, H2896 and on every good H2513 piece H7993 [H8686] of land cast H376 every man H68 his stone, H4390 [H8765] and filled H5640 [H8799] it; and they stopped H4599 all the wells H4325 of water, H5307 [H8686] and felled H2896 all the good H6086 trees: H7025 only in Kirharaseth H7604 [H8689] they left H68 the stones H7051 of it; but the slingers H5437 [H8799] went about H5221 [H8686] it, and smote it.
  26 H4428 And when the king H4124 of Moab H7200 [H8799] saw H4421 that the battle H2388 [H8804] was too fierce H3947 [H8799] for him, he took H7651 with him seven H3967 hundred H376 men H8025 [H8802] that drew H2719 swords, H1234 [H8687] to break through H4428 to the king H123 of Edom: H3201 [H8804] but they could not.
  27 H3947 [H8799] Then he took H1060 his eldest H1121 son H4427 [H8799] that was to reign H5927 [H8686] in his stead, and offered H5930 him for a burnt offering H2346 upon the wall. H1419 And there was great H7110 indignation H3478 against Israel: H5265 [H8799] and they departed H7725 [H8799] from him, and returned H776 to their own land.
