第十九章

 1 犹大王约沙法平平安安地回耶路撒冷,到宫里去了。 
 2 先见哈拿尼的儿子耶户出来迎接约沙法王,对他说,你岂当帮助恶人,爱那恨恶耶和华的人呢?因此耶和华的忿怒临到你。 
 3 然而你还有善行,因你从国中除掉木偶,立定心意寻求神。 
 4 约沙法住在耶路撒冷,以后又出巡民间,从别是巴直到以法莲山地,引导民归向耶和华他们列祖的神。 
 5 又在犹大国中遍地的坚固城里设立审判官, 
 6 对他们说,你们办事应当谨慎。因为你们判断不是为人,乃是为耶和华。判断的时候,他必与你们同在。 
 7 现在你们应当敬畏耶和华,谨慎办事。因为耶和华我们的神没有不义,不偏待人,也不受贿赂。 
 8 约沙法从利未人和祭司,并以色列族长中派定人,在耶路撒冷为耶和华判断,听民间的争讼,就回耶路撒冷去了。 
 9 约沙法嘱咐他们说,你们当敬畏耶和华,忠心诚实办事。 
 10 住在各城里你们的弟兄,若有争讼的事来到你们这里,或为流血,或犯律法,诫命,律例,典章,你们要警戒他们,免得他们得罪耶和华,以致他的忿怒临到你们和你们的弟兄。这样行,你们就没有罪了。 
 11 凡属耶和华的事,有大祭司亚玛利雅管理你们。凡属王的事,有犹大支派的族长以实玛利的儿子西巴第雅管理你们。在你们面前有利未人作官长。你们应当壮胆办事,愿耶和华与善人同在。

Chapter 19

1 And Jehoshaphat the king of Judah returned to his house in peace to Jerusalem.

2 And Jehu the son of Hanani the seer went out to meet him, and said to king Jehoshaphat, Shouldest thou help the ungodly, and love them that hate the LORD? therefore is wrath upon thee from before the LORD.

3 Nevertheless there are good things found in thee, in that thou hast taken away the groves out of the land, and hast prepared thine heart to seek God.

4 And Jehoshaphat dwelt at Jerusalem: and he went out again through the people from Beersheba to mount Ephraim, and brought them back unto the LORD God of their fathers.

5 And he set judges in the land throughout all the fenced cities of Judah, city by city,

6 And said to the judges, Take heed what ye do: for ye judge not for man, but for the LORD, who is with you in the judgment.

7 Wherefore now let the fear of the LORD be upon you; take heed and do it: for there is no iniquity with the LORD our God, nor respect of persons, nor taking of gifts.

8 Moreover in Jerusalem did Jehoshaphat set of the Levites, and of the priests, and of the chief of the fathers of Israel, for the judgment of the LORD, and for controversies, when they returned to Jerusalem.

9 And he charged them, saying, Thus shall ye do in the fear of the LORD, faithfully, and with a perfect heart.

10 And what cause soever shall come to you of your brethren that dwell in your cities, between blood and blood, between law and commandment, statutes and judgments, ye shall even warn them that they trespass not against the LORD, and so wrath come upon you, and upon your brethren: this do, and ye shall not trespass.

11 And, behold, Amariah the chief priest is over you in all matters of the LORD; and Zebadiah the son of Ishmael, the ruler of the house of Judah, for all the king's matters: also the Levites shall be officers before you. Deal courageously, and the LORD shall be with the good.

第二十章

 1 此后,摩押人和亚扪人,又有米乌尼人,一同来攻击约沙法。 
 2 有人来报告约沙法说,从海外亚兰(亚兰又作以东)那边有大军来攻击你,如今他们在哈洗逊他玛,就是隐基底。 
 3 约沙法便惧怕,定意寻求耶和华,在犹大全地宣告禁食。 
 4 于是犹大人聚会,求耶和华帮助。犹大各城都有人出来寻求耶和华。 
 5 约沙法就在犹大和耶路撒冷的会中,站在耶和华殿的新院前, 
 6 说,耶和华我们列祖的神阿,你不是天上的神吗?你不是万邦万国的主宰吗?在你手中有大能大力,无人能抵挡你。 
 7 我们的神阿,你不是曾在你民以色列人面前驱逐这地的居民,将这地赐给你朋友亚伯拉罕的后裔永远为业吗? 
 8 他们住在这地,又为你的名建造圣所,说, 
 9 倘有祸患临到我们,或刀兵灾殃,或瘟疫饥荒,我们在急难的时候,站在这殿前向你呼求,你必垂听而拯救,因为你的名在这殿里。 
 10 从前以色列人出埃及地的时候,你不容以色列人侵犯亚扪人,摩押人,和西珥山人,以色列人就离开他们,不灭绝他们。 
 11 看哪,他们怎样报复我们,要来驱逐我们出离你的地,就是你赐给我们为业之地。 
 12 我们的神阿,你不惩罚他们吗?因为我们无力抵挡这来攻击我们的大军,我们也不知道怎样行,我们的眼目单仰望你。 
 13 犹大众人和他们的婴孩,妻子,儿女都站在耶和华面前。 
 14 那时,耶和华的灵在会中临到利未人亚萨的后裔玛探雅的玄孙,耶利的曾孙,比拿雅的孙子,撒迦利雅的儿子雅哈悉。 
 15 他说,犹大众人,耶路撒冷的居民,和约沙法王,你们请听。耶和华对你们如此说,不要因这大军恐惧惊惶。因为胜败不在乎你们,乃在乎神。 
 16 明日你们要下去迎敌,他们是从洗斯坡上来,你们必在耶鲁伊勒旷野前的谷口遇见他们。 
 17 犹大和耶路撒冷人哪,这次你们不要争战,要摆阵站着,看耶和华为你们施行拯救。不要恐惧,也不要惊惶。明日当出去迎敌,因为耶和华与你们同在。 
 18 约沙法就面伏于地,犹大众人和耶路撒冷的居民也俯伏在耶和华面前,叩拜耶和华。 
 19 哥辖族和可拉族的利未人都起来,用极大的声音赞美耶和华以色列的神。 
 20 次日清早,众人起来往提哥亚的旷野去。出去的时候,约沙法站着说,犹大人和耶路撒冷的居民哪,要听我说,信耶和华你们的神就必立稳。信他的先知就必亨通。 
 21 约沙法既与民商议了,就设立歌唱的人,颂赞耶和华,使他们穿上圣洁的礼服,走在军前赞美耶和华说,当称谢耶和华,因他的慈爱永远长存。 
 22 众人方唱歌赞美的时候,耶和华就派伏兵击杀那来攻击犹大人的亚扪人,摩押人,和西珥山人,他们就被打败了。 
 23 因为亚扪人和摩押人起来,击杀住西珥山的人,将他们灭尽。灭尽住西珥山的人之后,他们又彼此自相击杀。 
 24 犹大人来到旷野的望楼,向那大军观看,见尸横遍地,没有一个逃脱的。 
 25 约沙法和他的百姓就来收取敌人的财物,在尸首中见了许多财物,珍宝,他们剥脱下来的多得不可携带。因为甚多,直收取了三日。 
 26 第四日众人聚集在比拉迦(就是称颂的意思)谷,在那里称颂耶和华。因此那地方名叫比拉迦谷,直到今日。 
 27 犹大人和耶路撒冷人都欢欢喜喜地回耶路撒冷,约沙法率领他们。因为耶和华使他们战胜仇敌,就欢喜快乐。 
 28 他们弹琴,鼓瑟,吹号来到耶路撒冷,进了耶和华的殿。 
 29 列邦诸国听见耶和华战败以色列的仇敌,就甚惧怕。 
 30 这样,约沙法的国得享太平,因为神赐他四境平安。 
 31 约沙法作犹大王,登基的时候年三十五岁,在耶路撒冷作王二十五年。他母亲名叫阿苏巴,乃示利希的女儿。 
 32 约沙法效法他父亚撒所行的,不偏左右,行耶和华眼中看为正的事。 
 33 只是丘坛还没有废去,百姓也没有立定心意归向他们列祖的神。 
 34 约沙法其余的事,自始至终都写在哈拿尼的儿子耶户的书上,也载入以色列诸王记上。 
 35 此后,犹大王约沙法与以色列王亚哈谢交好。亚哈谢行恶太甚。 
 36 二王合伙造船要往他施去,遂在以旬迦别造船。 
 37 那时玛利沙人,多大瓦的儿子以利以谢向约沙法预言说,因你与亚哈谢交好,耶和华必破坏你所造的。后来那船果然破坏,不能往他施去了。

Chapter 20

1 It came to pass after this also, that the children of Moab, and the children of Ammon, and with them other beside the Ammonites, came against Jehoshaphat to battle.

2 Then there came some that told Jehoshaphat, saying, There cometh a great multitude against thee from beyond the sea on this side Syria; and, behold, they be in Hazazontamar, which is Engedi.

3 And Jehoshaphat feared, and set himself to seek the LORD, and proclaimed a fast throughout all Judah.

4 And Judah gathered themselves together, to ask help of the LORD: even out of all the cities of Judah they came to seek the LORD.

5 And Jehoshaphat stood in the congregation of Judah and Jerusalem, in the house of the LORD, before the new court,

6 And said, O LORD God of our fathers, art not thou God in heaven? and rulest not thou over all the kingdoms of the heathen? and in thine hand is there not power and might, so that none is able to withstand thee?

7 Art not thou our God, who didst drive out the inhabitants of this land before thy people Israel, and gavest it to the seed of Abraham thy friend for ever?

8 And they dwelt therein, and have built thee a sanctuary therein for thy name, saying,

9 If, when evil cometh upon us, as the sword, judgment, or pestilence, or famine, we stand before this house, and in thy presence, (for thy name is in this house,) and cry unto thee in our affliction, then thou wilt hear and help.

10 And now, behold, the children of Ammon and Moab and mount Seir, whom thou wouldest not let Israel invade, when they came out of the land of Egypt, but they turned from them, and destroyed them not;

11 Behold, I say, how they reward us, to come to cast us out of thy possession, which thou hast given us to inherit.

12 O our God, wilt thou not judge them? for we have no might against this great company that cometh against us; neither know we what to do: but our eyes are upon thee.

13 And all Judah stood before the LORD, with their little ones, their wives, and their children.

14 Then upon Jahaziel the son of Zechariah, the son of Benaiah, the son of Jeiel, the son of Mattaniah, a Levite of the sons of Asaph, came the Spirit of the LORD in the midst of the congregation;

15 And he said, Hearken ye, all Judah, and ye inhabitants of Jerusalem, and thou king Jehoshaphat, Thus saith the LORD unto you, Be not afraid nor dismayed by reason of this great multitude; for the battle is not yours, but God's.

16 To morrow go ye down against them: behold, they come up by the cliff of Ziz; and ye shall find them at the end of the brook, before the wilderness of Jeruel.

17 Ye shall not need to fight in this battle: set yourselves, stand ye still, and see the salvation of the LORD with you, O Judah and Jerusalem: fear not, nor be dismayed; to morrow go out against them: for the LORD will be with you.

18 And Jehoshaphat bowed his head with his face to the ground: and all Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem fell before the LORD, worshipping the LORD.

19 And the Levites, of the children of the Kohathites, and of the children of the Korhites, stood up to praise the LORD God of Israel with a loud voice on high.

20 And they rose early in the morning, and went forth into the wilderness of Tekoa: and as they went forth, Jehoshaphat stood and said, Hear me, O Judah, and ye inhabitants of Jerusalem; Believe in the LORD your God, so shall ye be established; believe his prophets, so shall ye prosper.

21 And when he had consulted with the people, he appointed singers unto the LORD, and that should praise the beauty of holiness, as they went out before the army, and to say, Praise the LORD; for his mercy endureth for ever.

22 And when they began to sing and to praise, the LORD set ambushments against the children of Ammon, Moab, and mount Seir, which were come against Judah; and they were smitten.

23 For the children of Ammon and Moab stood up against the inhabitants of mount Seir, utterly to slay and destroy them: and when they had made an end of the inhabitants of Seir, every one helped to destroy another.

24 And when Judah came toward the watch tower in the wilderness, they looked unto the multitude, and, behold, they were dead bodies fallen to the earth, and none escaped.

25 And when Jehoshaphat and his people came to take away the spoil of them, they found among them in abundance both riches with the dead bodies, and precious jewels, which they stripped off for themselves, more than they could carry away: and they were three days in gathering of the spoil, it was so much.

26 And on the fourth day they assembled themselves in the valley of Berachah; for there they blessed the LORD: therefore the name of the same place was called, The valley of Berachah, unto this day.

27 Then they returned, every man of Judah and Jerusalem, and Jehoshaphat in the forefront of them, to go again to Jerusalem with joy; for the LORD had made them to rejoice over their enemies.

28 And they came to Jerusalem with psalteries and harps and trumpets unto the house of the LORD.

29 And the fear of God was on all the kingdoms of those countries, when they had heard that the LORD fought against the enemies of Israel.

30 So the realm of Jehoshaphat was quiet: for his God gave him rest round about.

31 And Jehoshaphat reigned over Judah: he was thirty and five years old when he began to reign, and he reigned twenty and five years in Jerusalem. And his mother's name was Azubah the daughter of Shilhi.

32 And he walked in the way of Asa his father, and departed not from it, doing that which was right in the sight of the LORD.

33 Howbeit the high places were not taken away: for as yet the people had not prepared their hearts unto the God of their fathers.

34 Now the rest of the acts of Jehoshaphat, first and last, behold, they are written in the book of Jehu the son of Hanani, who is mentioned in the book of the kings of Israel.

35 And after this did Jehoshaphat king of Judah join himself with Ahaziah king of Israel, who did very wickedly:

36 And he joined himself with him to make ships to go to Tarshish: and they made the ships in Eziongaber.

37 Then Eliezer the son of Dodavah of Mareshah prophesied against Jehoshaphat, saying, Because thou hast joined thyself with Ahaziah, the LORD hath broken thy works. And the ships were broken, that they were not able to go to Tarshish.

第二十一章

 1 约沙法与他列祖同睡,葬在大卫城他列祖的坟地里。他儿子约兰接续他作王。 
 2 约兰有几个兄弟,就是约沙法的儿子亚撒利雅,耶歇,撒迦利雅,亚撒利雅,米迦勒,示法提雅。这都是犹大王约沙法的儿子。 
 3 他们的父亲将许多金银,财宝,和犹大地的坚固城赐给他们。但将国赐给约兰,因为他是长子。 
 4 约兰兴起坐他父的位,奋勇自强,就用刀杀了他的众兄弟和以色列的几个首领。 
 5 约兰登基的时候年三十二岁,在耶路撒冷作王八年。 
 6 他行以色列诸王的道,与亚哈家一样。因他娶了亚哈的女儿为妻,行耶和华眼中看为恶的事。 
 7 耶和华却因自己与大卫所立的约,不肯灭大卫的家,照他所应许的,永远赐灯光与大卫和他的子孙。 
 8 约兰年间,以东人背叛犹大,脱离他的权下,自己立王。 
 9 约兰就率领军长和所有的战车,夜间起来,攻击围困他的以东人和车兵长。 
 10 这样,以东人背叛犹大,脱离他的权下,直到今日。那时,立拿人也背叛了,因为约兰离弃耶和华他列祖的神。 
 11 他又在犹大诸山建筑丘坛,使耶路撒冷的居民行邪淫,诱惑犹大人。 
 12 先知以利亚达信与约兰说,耶和华你祖大卫的神如此说,因为你不行你父约沙法和犹大王亚撒的道, 
 13 乃行以色列诸王的道,使犹大人和耶路撒冷的居民行邪淫,像亚哈家一样,又杀了你父家比你好的诸兄弟。 
 14 故此,耶和华降大灾与你的百姓和你的妻子,儿女,并你一切所有的。 
 15 你的肠子必患病,日加沉重,以致你的肠子坠落下来。 
 16 以后,耶和华激动非利士人和靠近古实的亚拉伯人来攻击约兰。 
 17 他们上来攻击犹大,侵入境内,掳掠了王宫里所有的财货和他的妻子,儿女,除了他小儿子约哈斯(又名亚哈谢)之外,没有留下一个儿子。 
 18 这些事以后,耶和华使约兰的肠子患不能医治的病。 
 19 他患此病缠绵日久,过了二年,肠子坠落下来,病重而死。他的民没有为他烧什么物件,像从前为他列祖所烧的一样。 
 20 约兰登基的时候年三十二岁,在耶路撒冷作王八年。他去世无人思慕,众人葬他在大卫城,只是不在列王的坟墓里。

Chapter 21

1 Now Jehoshaphat slept with his fathers, and was buried with his fathers in the city of David. And Jehoram his son reigned in his stead.

2 And he had brethren the sons of Jehoshaphat, Azariah, and Jehiel, and Zechariah, and Azariah, and Michael, and Shephatiah: all these were the sons of Jehoshaphat king of Israel.

3 And their father gave them great gifts of silver, and of gold, and of precious things, with fenced cities in Judah: but the kingdom gave he to Jehoram; because he was the firstborn.

4 Now when Jehoram was risen up to the kingdom of his father, he strengthened himself, and slew all his brethren with the sword, and divers also of the princes of Israel.

5 Jehoram was thirty and two years old when he began to reign, and he reigned eight years in Jerusalem.

6 And he walked in the way of the kings of Israel, like as did the house of Ahab: for he had the daughter of Ahab to wife: and he wrought that which was evil in the eyes of the LORD.

7 Howbeit the LORD would not destroy the house of David, because of the covenant that he had made with David, and as he promised to give a light to him and to his sons for ever.

8 In his days the Edomites revolted from under the dominion of Judah, and made themselves a king.

9 Then Jehoram went forth with his princes, and all his chariots with him: and he rose up by night, and smote the Edomites which compassed him in, and the captains of the chariots.

10 So the Edomites revolted from under the hand of Judah unto this day. The same time also did Libnah revolt from under his hand; because he had forsaken the LORD God of his fathers.

11 Moreover he made high places in the mountains of Judah and caused the inhabitants of Jerusalem to commit fornication, and compelled Judah thereto.

12 And there came a writing to him from Elijah the prophet, saying, Thus saith the LORD God of David thy father, Because thou hast not walked in the ways of Jehoshaphat thy father, nor in the ways of Asa king of Judah,

13 But hast walked in the way of the kings of Israel, and hast made Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem to go a whoring, like to the whoredoms of the house of Ahab, and also hast slain thy brethren of thy father's house, which were better than thyself:

14 Behold, with a great plague will the LORD smite thy people, and thy children, and thy wives, and all thy goods:

15 And thou shalt have great sickness by disease of thy bowels, until thy bowels fall out by reason of the sickness day by day.

16 Moreover the LORD stirred up against Jehoram the spirit of the Philistines, and of the Arabians, that were near the Ethiopians:

17 And they came up into Judah, and brake into it, and carried away all the substance that was found in the king's house, and his sons also, and his wives; so that there was never a son left him, save Jehoahaz, the youngest of his sons.

18 And after all this the LORD smote him in his bowels with an incurable disease.

19 And it came to pass, that in process of time, after the end of two years, his bowels fell out by reason of his sickness: so he died of sore diseases. And his people made no burning for him, like the burning of his fathers.

20 Thirty and two years old was he when he began to reign, and he reigned in Jerusalem eight years, and departed without being desired. Howbeit they buried him in the city of David, but not in the sepulchres of the kings.

第二十二章

 1 耶路撒冷的居民立约兰的小儿子亚哈谢接续他作王。因为跟随亚拉伯人来攻营的军兵曾杀了亚哈谢的众兄长。这样,犹大王约兰的儿子亚哈谢作了王。 
 2 亚哈谢登基的时候年四十二岁(列王下八章二十六节作二十二岁),在耶路撒冷作王一年。他母亲名叫亚他利雅,是暗利的孙女。 
 3 亚哈谢也行亚哈家的道。因为他母亲给他主谋,使他行恶。 
 4 他行耶和华眼中看为恶的事,像亚哈家一样。因他父亲死后有亚哈家的人给他主谋,以致败坏。 
 5 他听从亚哈家的计谋,同以色列王亚哈的儿子约兰往基列的拉末去,与亚兰王哈薛争战。亚兰人打伤了约兰。 
 6 约兰回到耶斯列,医治在拉末与亚兰王哈薛打仗所受的伤,犹大王约兰的儿子亚撒利雅(即亚哈谢)因为亚哈的儿子约兰病了,就下到耶斯列看望他。 
 7 亚哈谢去见约兰就被害了,这是出乎神。因为他到了,就同约兰出去攻击宁示的孙子耶户。这耶户是耶和华所膏,使他剪除亚哈家的。 
 8 耶户讨亚哈家罪的时候,遇见犹大的众首领和亚哈谢的众侄子服事亚哈谢,就把他们都杀了。 
 9 亚哈谢藏在撒玛利亚,耶户寻找他,众人将他拿住,送到耶户那里,就杀了他,将他葬埋。因他们说,他是那尽心寻求耶和华之约沙法的儿子。这样,亚哈谢的家无力保守国权。 
 10 亚哈谢的母亲亚他利雅见她儿子死了,就起来剿灭犹大王室。 
 11 但王的女儿约示巴将亚哈谢的儿子约阿施从那被杀的王子中偷出来,把他和他的乳母都藏在卧房里。约示巴是约兰王的女儿,亚哈谢的妹子,祭司耶何耶大的妻。她收藏约阿施,躲避亚他利雅,免得被杀。 
 12 约阿施和她们一同藏在神殿里六年。亚他利雅篡了国位。

Chapter 22

1 And the inhabitants of Jerusalem made Ahaziah his youngest son king in his stead: for the band of men that came with the Arabians to the camp had slain all the eldest. So Ahaziah the son of Jehoram king of Judah reigned.

2 Forty and two years old was Ahaziah when he began to reign, and he reigned one year in Jerusalem. His mother's name also was Athaliah the daughter of Omri.

3 He also walked in the ways of the house of Ahab: for his mother was his counsellor to do wickedly.

4 Wherefore he did evil in the sight of the LORD like the house of Ahab: for they were his counsellors after the death of his father to his destruction.

5 He walked also after their counsel, and went with Jehoram the son of Ahab king of Israel to war against Hazael king of Syria at Ramothgilead: and the Syrians smote Joram.

6 And he returned to be healed in Jezreel because of the wounds which were given him at Ramah, when he fought with Hazael king of Syria. And Azariah the son of Jehoram king of Judah went down to see Jehoram the son of Ahab at Jezreel, because he was sick.

7 And the destruction of Ahaziah was of God by coming to Joram: for when he was come, he went out with Jehoram against Jehu the son of Nimshi, whom the LORD had anointed to cut off the house of Ahab.

8 And it came to pass, that, when Jehu was executing judgment upon the house of Ahab, and found the princes of Judah, and the sons of the brethren of Ahaziah, that ministered to Ahaziah, he slew them.

9 And he sought Ahaziah: and they caught him, (for he was hid in Samaria,) and brought him to Jehu: and when they had slain him, they buried him: Because, said they, he is the son of Jehoshaphat, who sought the LORD with all his heart. So the house of Ahaziah had no power to keep still the kingdom.

10 But when Athaliah the mother of Ahaziah saw that her son was dead, she arose and destroyed all the seed royal of the house of Judah.

11 But Jehoshabeath, the daughter of the king, took Joash the son of Ahaziah, and stole him from among the king's sons that were slain, and put him and his nurse in a bedchamber. So Jehoshabeath, the daughter of king Jehoram, the wife of Jehoiada the priest, (for she was the sister of Ahaziah,) hid him from Athaliah, so that she slew him not.

12 And he was with them hid in the house of God six years: and Athaliah reigned over the land.

第二十三章
(图)历代志下 II Chronicles (19-27)

 1 第七年,耶何耶大奋勇自强,将百夫长耶罗罕的儿子亚撒利雅,约哈难的儿子以实玛利,俄备得的儿子亚撒利雅,亚大雅的儿子玛西雅,细基利的儿子以利沙法召来,与他们立约。 
 2 他们走遍犹大,从犹大各城里招聚利未人和以色列的众族长到耶路撒冷来。 
 3 会众在神殿里与王立约。耶何耶大对他们说,看哪,王的儿子必当作王,正如耶和华指着大卫子孙所应许的话。 
 4 又说,你们当这样行,祭司和利未人凡安息日进班的,三分之一要把守各门, 
 5 三分之一要在王宫,三分之一要在基址门。众百姓要在耶和华殿的院内。 
 6 除了祭司和供职的利未人之外,不准别人进耶和华的殿。惟独他们可以进去,因为他们圣洁。众百姓要遵守耶和华所吩咐的。 
 7 利未人要手中各拿兵器,四围护卫王。凡擅入殿宇的,必当治死。王出入的时候,你们当跟随他。 
 8 利未人和犹大众人都照着祭司耶何耶大一切所吩咐的去行,各带所管安息日进班出班的人来,因为祭司耶何耶大不许他们下班。 
 9 祭司耶何耶大便将神殿里所藏大卫王的枪,盾牌,挡牌交给百夫长, 
 10 又分派众民手中各拿兵器,在坛和殿那里,从殿右直到殿左,站在王子的四围。 
 11 于是领王子出来,给他戴上冠冕,将律法书交给他,立他作王。耶何耶大和众子膏他,众人说,愿王万岁。 
 12 亚他利雅听见民奔走赞美王的声音,就到民那里,进耶和华的殿, 
 13 看见王站在殿门的柱旁,百夫长和吹号的人侍立在王左右,国民都欢乐吹号,又有歌唱的,用各样的乐器领人歌唱赞美。亚他利雅就撕裂衣服,喊叫说,反了。反了。 
 14 祭司耶何耶大带管辖军兵的百夫长出来,吩咐他们说,将她赶到班外,凡跟随她的必用刀杀死。因为祭司说,不可在耶和华殿里杀她。 
 15 众兵就闪开,让她去。她走到王宫的马门,便在那里把她杀了。 
 16 耶何耶大与众民和王立约,都要作耶和华的民。 
 17 于是众民都到巴力庙,拆毁了庙,打碎坛和像,又在坛前将巴力的祭司玛坦杀了。 
 18 耶何耶大派官看守耶和华的殿,是在祭司利未人手下。这祭司利未人是大卫分派在耶和华殿中,照摩西律法上所写的,给耶和华献燔祭,又按大卫所定的例,欢乐歌唱。 
 19 且设立守门的把守耶和华殿的各门,无论为何事,不洁净的人都不准进去。 
 20 又率领百夫长和贵胄,与民间的官长,并国中的众民,请王从耶和华殿下来,由上门进入王宫,立王坐在国位上。 
 21 国民都欢乐,合城都安静。众人已将亚他利雅用刀杀了。

Chapter 23

1 And in the seventh year Jehoiada strengthened himself, and took the captains of hundreds, Azariah the son of Jeroham, and Ishmael the son of Jehohanan, and Azariah the son of Obed, and Maaseiah the son of Adaiah, and Elishaphat the son of Zichri, into covenant with him.

2 And they went about in Judah, and gathered the Levites out of all the cities of Judah, and the chief of the fathers of Israel, and they came to Jerusalem.

3 And all the congregation made a covenant with the king in the house of God. And he said unto them, Behold, the king's son shall reign, as the LORD hath said of the sons of David.

4 This is the thing that ye shall do; A third part of you entering on the sabbath, of the priests and of the Levites, shall be porters of the doors;

5 And a third part shall be at the king's house; and a third part at the gate of the foundation: and all the people shall be in the courts of the house of the LORD.

6 But let none come into the house of the LORD, save the priests, and they that minister of the Levites; they shall go in, for they are holy: but all the people shall keep the watch of the LORD.

7 And the Levites shall compass the king round about, every man with his weapons in his hand; and whosoever else cometh into the house, he shall be put to death: but be ye with the king when he cometh in, and when he goeth out.

8 So the Levites and all Judah did according to all things that Jehoiada the priest had commanded, and took every man his men that were to come in on the sabbath, with them that were to go out on the sabbath: for Jehoiada the priest dismissed not the courses.

9 Moreover Jehoiada the priest delivered to the captains of hundreds spears, and bucklers, and shields, that had been king David's, which were in the house of God.

10 And he set all the people, every man having his weapon in his hand, from the right side of the temple to the left side of the temple, along by the altar and the temple, by the king round about.

11 Then they brought out the king's son, and put upon him the crown, and gave him the testimony, and made him king. And Jehoiada and his sons anointed him, and said, God save the king.

12 Now when Athaliah heard the noise of the people running and praising the king, she came to the people into the house of the LORD:

13 And she looked, and, behold, the king stood at his pillar at the entering in, and the princes and the trumpets by the king: and all the people of the land rejoiced, and sounded with trumpets, also the singers with instruments of musick, and such as taught to sing praise. Then Athaliah rent her clothes, and said, Treason, Treason.

14 Then Jehoiada the priest brought out the captains of hundreds that were set over the host, and said unto them, Have her forth of the ranges: and whoso followeth her, let him be slain with the sword. For the priest said, Slay her not in the house of the LORD.

15 So they laid hands on her; and when she was come to the entering of the horse gate by the king's house, they slew her there.

16 And Jehoiada made a covenant between him, and between all the people, and between the king, that they should be the LORD's people.

17 Then all the people went to the house of Baal, and brake it down, and brake his altars and his images in pieces, and slew Mattan the priest of Baal before the altars.

18 Also Jehoiada appointed the offices of the house of the LORD by the hand of the priests the Levites, whom David had distributed in the house of the LORD, to offer the burnt offerings of the LORD, as it is written in the law of Moses, with rejoicing and with singing, as it was ordained by David.

19 And he set the porters at the gates of the house of the LORD, that none which was unclean in any thing should enter in.

20 And he took the captains of hundreds, and the nobles, and the governors of the people, and all the people of the land, and brought down the king from the house of the LORD: and they came through the high gate into the king's house, and set the king upon the throne of the kingdom.

21 And all the people of the land rejoiced: and the city was quiet, after that they had slain Athaliah with the sword.

第二十四章

 1 约阿施登基的时候年七岁,在耶路撒冷作王四十年。他母亲名叫西比亚,是别是巴人。 
 2 祭司耶何耶大在世的时候,约阿施行耶和华眼中看为正的事。 
 3 耶何耶大为他娶了两个妻,并且生儿养女。 
 4 此后,约阿施有意重修耶和华的殿, 
 5 便召聚众祭司和利未人,吩咐他们说,你们要往犹大各城去,使以色列众人捐纳银子,每年可以修理你们神的殿。你们要急速办理这事。只是利未人不急速办理。 
 6 王召了大祭司耶何耶大来,对他说,从前耶和华的仆人摩西,为法柜的帐幕与以色列会众所定的捐项,你为何不叫利未人照这例从犹大和耶路撒冷带来作殿的费用呢? 
 7 因为那恶妇亚他利雅的众子曾拆毁神的殿,又用耶和华殿中分别为圣的物供奉巴力。 
 8 于是王下令,众人作了一柜,放在耶和华殿的门外, 
 9 又通告犹大和耶路撒冷的百姓,要将神仆人摩西在旷野所吩咐以色列人的捐项给耶和华送来。 
 10 众首领和百姓都欢欢喜喜地将银子送来,投入柜中,直到捐完。 
 11 利未人见银子多了,就把柜抬到王所派的司事面前。王的书记和大祭司的属员来将柜倒空,仍放在原处。日日都是这样,积蓄的银子甚多。 
 12 王与耶何耶大将银子交给耶和华殿里办事的人,他们就雇了石匠,木匠重修耶和华的殿,又雇了铁匠,铜匠修理耶和华的殿。 
 13 工人操作,渐渐修成,将神殿修造得与从前一样,而且甚是坚固。 
 14 工程完了,他们就把其余的银子拿到王与耶何耶大面前,用以制造耶和华殿供奉所用的器皿和调羹,并金银的器皿。耶何耶大在世的时候,众人常在耶和华殿里献燔祭。 
 15 耶何耶大年纪老迈,日子满足而死。死的时候年一百三十岁, 
 16 葬在大卫城列王的坟墓里。因为他在以色列人中行善,又事奉神,修理神的殿。 
 17 耶何耶大死后,犹大的众首领来朝拜王。王就听从他们。 
 18 他们离弃耶和华他们列祖神的殿,去事奉亚舍拉和偶像。因他们这罪,就有忿怒临到犹大和耶路撒冷。 
 19 但神仍遣先知到他们那里,引导他们归向耶和华。这先知警戒他们,他们却不肯听。 
 20 那时,神的灵感动祭司耶何耶大的儿子撒迦利亚,他就站在上面对民说,神如此说,你们为何干犯耶和华的诫命,以致不得亨通呢?因为你们离弃耶和华,所以他也离弃你们。 
 21 众民同心谋害撒迦利亚,就照王的吩咐,在耶和华殿的院内用石头打死他。 
 22 这样,约阿施王不想念撒迦利亚的父亲耶何耶大向自己所施的恩,杀了他的儿子。撒迦利亚临死的时候说,愿耶和华鉴察伸冤。 
 23 满了一年,亚兰的军兵上来攻击约阿施,来到犹大和耶路撒冷,杀了民中的众首领,将所掠的财货送到大马色王那里。 
 24 亚兰的军兵虽来了一小队,耶和华却将大队的军兵交在他们手里,是因犹大人离弃耶和华他们列祖的神,所以借亚兰人惩罚约阿施。 
 25 亚兰人离开约阿施的时候,他患重病。臣仆背叛他,要报祭司耶何耶大儿子流血之仇,杀他在床上,葬他在大卫城,只是不葬在列王的坟墓里。 
 26 背叛他的是亚扪妇人示米押的儿子撒拔和摩押妇人示米利的儿子约萨拔。 
 27 至于他的众子和他所受的警戒,并他重修神殿的事,都写在列王的传上。他儿子亚玛谢接续他作王。

Chapter 24

1 Joash was seven years old when he began to reign, and he reigned forty years in Jerusalem. His mother's name also was Zibiah of Beersheba.

2 And Joash did that which was right in the sight of the LORD all the days of Jehoiada the priest.

3 And Jehoiada took for him two wives; and he begat sons and daughters.

4 And it came to pass after this, that Joash was minded to repair the house of the LORD.

5 And he gathered together the priests and the Levites, and said to them, Go out unto the cities of Judah, and gather of all Israel money to repair the house of your God from year to year, and see that ye hasten the matter. Howbeit the Levites hastened it not.

6 And the king called for Jehoiada the chief, and said unto him, Why hast thou not required of the Levites to bring in out of Judah and out of Jerusalem the collection, according to the commandment of Moses the servant of the LORD, and of the congregation of Israel, for the tabernacle of witness?

7 For the sons of Athaliah, that wicked woman, had broken up the house of God; and also all the dedicated things of the house of the LORD did they bestow upon Baalim.

8 And at the king's commandment they made a chest, and set it without at the gate of the house of the LORD.

9 And they made a proclamation through Judah and Jerusalem, to bring in to the LORD the collection that Moses the servant of God laid upon Israel in the wilderness.

10 And all the princes and all the people rejoiced, and brought in, and cast into the chest, until they had made an end.

11 Now it came to pass, that at what time the chest was brought unto the king's office by the hand of the Levites, and when they saw that there was much money, the king's scribe and the high priest's officer came and emptied the chest, and took it, and carried it to his place again. Thus they did day by day, and gathered money in abundance.

12 And the king and Jehoiada gave it to such as did the work of the service of the house of the LORD, and hired masons and carpenters to repair the house of the LORD, and also such as wrought iron and brass to mend the house of the LORD.

13 So the workmen wrought, and the work was perfected by them, and they set the house of God in his state, and strengthened it.

14 And when they had finished it, they brought the rest of the money before the king and Jehoiada, whereof were made vessels for the house of the LORD, even vessels to minister, and to offer withal, and spoons, and vessels of gold and silver. And they offered burnt offerings in the house of the LORD continually all the days of Jehoiada.

15 But Jehoiada waxed old, and was full of days when he died; an hundred and thirty years old was he when he died.

16 And they buried him in the city of David among the kings, because he had done good in Israel, both toward God, and toward his house.

17 Now after the death of Jehoiada came the princes of Judah, and made obeisance to the king. Then the king hearkened unto them.

18 And they left the house of the LORD God of their fathers, and served groves and idols: and wrath came upon Judah and Jerusalem for this their trespass.

19 Yet he sent prophets to them, to bring them again unto the LORD; and they testified against them: but they would not give ear.

20 And the Spirit of God came upon Zechariah the son of Jehoiada the priest, which stood above the people, and said unto them, Thus saith God, Why transgress ye the commandments of the LORD, that ye cannot prosper? because ye have forsaken the LORD, he hath also forsaken you.

21 And they conspired against him, and stoned him with stones at the commandment of the king in the court of the house of the LORD.

22 Thus Joash the king remembered not the kindness which Jehoiada his father had done to him, but slew his son. And when he died, he said, The LORD look upon it, and require it.

23 And it came to pass at the end of the year, that the host of Syria came up against him: and they came to Judah and Jerusalem, and destroyed all the princes of the people from among the people, and sent all the spoil of them unto the king of Damascus.

24 For the army of the Syrians came with a small company of men, and the LORD delivered a very great host into their hand, because they had forsaken the LORD God of their fathers. So they executed judgment against Joash.

25 And when they were departed from him, (for they left him in great diseases,) his own servants conspired against him for the blood of the sons of Jehoiada the priest, and slew him on his bed, and he died: and they buried him in the city of David, but they buried him not in the sepulchres of the kings.

26 And these are they that conspired against him; Zabad the son of Shimeath an Ammonitess, and Jehozabad the son of Shimrith a Moabitess.

27 Now concerning his sons, and the greatness of the burdens laid upon him, and the repairing of the house of God, behold, they are written in the story of the book of the kings. And Amaziah his son reigned in his stead.

第二十五章

 1 亚玛谢登基的时候年二十五岁,在耶路撒冷作王二十九年。他母亲名叫约耶但,是耶路撒冷人。 
 2 亚玛谢行耶和华眼中看为正的事,只是心不专诚。 
 3 国一坚定,就把杀他父王的臣仆杀了, 
 4 却没有治死他们的儿子,是照摩西律法书上耶和华所吩咐的说,不可因子杀父,也不可因父杀子,各人要为本身的罪而死。 
 5 亚玛谢招聚犹大人,按着犹大和便雅悯的宗族设立千夫长,百夫长,又数点人数,从二十岁以外,能拿枪拿盾牌出去打仗的精兵共有三十万。 
 6 又用银子一百他连得,从以色列招募了十万大能的勇士。 
 7 有一个神人来见亚玛谢,对他说,王阿,不要使以色列的军兵与你同去,因为耶和华不与以色列人以法莲的后裔同在。 
 8 你若一定要去,就奋勇争战吧。但神必使你败在敌人面前。因为神能助人得胜,也能使人倾败。 
 9 亚玛谢问神人说,我给了以色列军的那一百他连得银子怎么样呢?神人回答说,耶和华能把更多的赐给你。 
 10 于是亚玛谢将那从以法莲来的军兵分别出来,叫他们回家去。故此,他们甚恼怒犹大人,气忿忿地回家去了。 
 11 亚玛谢壮起胆来,率领他的民到盐谷,杀了西珥人一万。 
 12 犹大人又生擒了一万带到山崖上,从那里把他们扔下去,以致他们都摔碎了。 
 13 但亚玛谢所打发回去,不许一同出征的那些军兵攻打犹大各城,从撒玛利亚直到伯和仑,杀了三千人,抢了许多财物。 
 14 亚玛谢杀了以东人回来,就把西珥的神像带回,立为自己的神,在它面前叩拜烧香。 
 15 因此,耶和华的怒气向亚玛谢发作,就差一个先知去见他,说,这些神不能救它的民脱离你的手,你为何寻求它呢? 
 16 先知与王说话的时候,王对他说,谁立你作王的谋士呢?你住口吧。为何找打呢?先知就止住了,又说,你行这事,不听从我的劝戒,我知道神定意要灭你。 
 17 犹大王亚玛谢与群臣商议,就差遣使者去见耶户的孙子,约哈斯的儿子,以色列王约阿施,说,你来,我们二人相见于战场。 
 18 以色列王约阿施差遣使者去见犹大王亚玛谢,说,利巴嫩的蒺藜差遣使者去见利巴嫩的香柏树,说,将你的女儿给我儿子为妻。后来利巴嫩有一个野兽经过,把蒺藜践踏了。 
 19 你说,看哪,我打败了以东人,你就心高气傲,以致矜夸。你在家里安居就罢了,为何要惹祸使自己和犹大国一同败亡呢? 
 20 亚玛谢却不肯听从。这是出乎神,好将他们交在敌人手里,因为他们寻求以东的神。 
 21 于是以色列王约阿施上来,在犹大的伯示麦与犹大王亚玛谢相见于战场。 
 22 犹大人败在以色列人面前,各自逃回家里去了。 
 23 以色列王约阿施在伯示麦擒住约哈斯(就是亚哈谢)的孙子,约阿施的儿子,犹大王亚玛谢,将他带到耶路撒冷,又拆毁耶路撒冷的城墙,从以法莲门直到角门,共四百肘。 
 24 又将俄别以东所看守神殿里的一切金银和器皿,与王宫里的财宝都拿了去,并带人去为质,就回撒玛利亚去了。 
 25 以色列王约哈斯的儿子约阿施死后,犹大王约阿施的儿子亚玛谢又活了十五年。 
 26 亚玛谢其余的事,自始至终不都写在犹大和以色列诸王记上吗? 
 27 自从亚玛谢离弃耶和华之后,在耶路撒冷有人背叛他,他就逃到拉吉。叛党却打发人到拉吉,将他杀了。 
 28 人就用马将他的尸首驮回,葬在犹大京城他列祖的坟地里。

Chapter 25

1 Amaziah was twenty and five years old when he began to reign, and he reigned twenty and nine years in Jerusalem. And his mother's name was Jehoaddan of Jerusalem.

2 And he did that which was right in the sight of the LORD, but not with a perfect heart.

3 Now it came to pass, when the kingdom was established to him, that he slew his servants that had killed the king his father.

4 But he slew not their children, but did as it is written in the law in the book of Moses, where the LORD commanded, saying, The fathers shall not die for the children, neither shall the children die for the fathers, but every man shall die for his own sin.

5 Moreover Amaziah gathered Judah together, and made them captains over thousands, and captains over hundreds, according to the houses of their fathers, throughout all Judah and Benjamin: and he numbered them from twenty years old and above, and found them three hundred thousand choice men, able to go forth to war, that could handle spear and shield.

6 He hired also an hundred thousand mighty men of valour out of Israel for an hundred talents of silver.

7 But there came a man of God to him, saying, O king, let not the army of Israel go with thee; for the LORD is not with Israel, to wit, with all the children of Ephraim.

8 But if thou wilt go, do it; be strong for the battle: God shall make thee fall before the enemy: for God hath power to help, and to cast down.

9 And Amaziah said to the man of God, But what shall we do for the hundred talents which I have given to the army of Israel? And the man of God answered, The LORD is able to give thee much more than this.

10 Then Amaziah separated them, to wit, the army that was come to him out of Ephraim, to go home again: wherefore their anger was greatly kindled against Judah, and they returned home in great anger.

11 And Amaziah strengthened himself, and led forth his people, and went to the valley of salt, and smote of the children of Seir ten thousand.

12 And other ten thousand left alive did the children of Judah carry away captive, and brought them unto the top of the rock, and cast them down from the top of the rock, that they all were broken in pieces.

13 But the soldiers of the army which Amaziah sent back, that they should not go with him to battle, fell upon the cities of Judah, from Samaria even unto Bethhoron, and smote three thousand of them, and took much spoil.

14 Now it came to pass, after that Amaziah was come from the slaughter of the Edomites, that he brought the gods of the children of Seir, and set them up to be his gods, and bowed down himself before them, and burned incense unto them.

15 Wherefore the anger of the LORD was kindled against Amaziah, and he sent unto him a prophet, which said unto him, Why hast thou sought after the gods of the people, which could not deliver their own people out of thine hand?

16 And it came to pass, as he talked with him, that the king said unto him, Art thou made of the king's counsel? forbear; why shouldest thou be smitten? Then the prophet forbare, and said, I know that God hath determined to destroy thee, because thou hast done this, and hast not hearkened unto my counsel.

17 Then Amaziah king of Judah took advice, and sent to Joash, the son of Jehoahaz, the son of Jehu, king of Israel, saying, Come, let us see one another in the face.

18 And Joash king of Israel sent to Amaziah king of Judah, saying, The thistle that was in Lebanon sent to the cedar that was in Lebanon, saying, Give thy daughter to my son to wife: and there passed by a wild beast that was in Lebanon, and trode down the thistle.

19 Thou sayest, Lo, thou hast smitten the Edomites; and thine heart lifteth thee up to boast: abide now at home; why shouldest thou meddle to thine hurt, that thou shouldest fall, even thou, and Judah with thee?

20 But Amaziah would not hear; for it came of God, that he might deliver them into the hand of their enemies, because they sought after the gods of Edom.

21 So Joash the king of Israel went up; and they saw one another in the face, both he and Amaziah king of Judah, at Bethshemesh, which belongeth to Judah.

22 And Judah was put to the worse before Israel, and they fled every man to his tent.

23 And Joash the king of Israel took Amaziah king of Judah, the son of Joash, the son of Jehoahaz, at Bethshemesh, and brought him to Jerusalem, and brake down the wall of Jerusalem from the gate of Ephraim to the corner gate, four hundred cubits.

24 And he took all the gold and the silver, and all the vessels that were found in the house of God with Obededom, and the treasures of the king's house, the hostages also, and returned to Samaria.

25 And Amaziah the son of Joash king of Judah lived after the death of Joash son of Jehoahaz king of Israel fifteen years.

26 Now the rest of the acts of Amaziah, first and last, behold, are they not written in the book of the kings of Judah and Israel?

27 Now after the time that Amaziah did turn away from following the LORD they made a conspiracy against him in Jerusalem; and he fled to Lachish: but they sent to Lachish after him, and slew him there.

28 And they brought him upon horses, and buried him with his fathers in the city of Judah.

第二十六章

 1 犹大众民立亚玛谢的儿子乌西雅(又名亚撒利雅)接续他父作王,那时他年十六岁。 
 2 亚玛谢与他列祖同睡之后,乌西雅收回以禄仍归犹大,又重新修理。 
 3 乌西雅登基的时候年十六岁,在耶路撒冷作王五十二年。他母亲名叫耶可利雅,是耶路撒冷人。 
 4 乌西雅行耶和华眼中看为正的事,效法他父亚玛谢一切所行的。 
 5 通晓神默示,撒迦利亚在世的时候,乌西雅定意寻求神。他寻求耶和华,神就使他亨通。 
 6 他出去攻击非利士人,拆毁了迦特城,雅比尼城,和亚实突城。在非利士人中,在亚实突境内,又建筑了些城。 
 7 神帮助他攻击非利士人和住在姑珥巴力的亚拉伯人,并米乌尼人。 
 8 亚扪人给乌西雅进贡。他的名声传到埃及,因他甚是强盛。 
 9 乌西雅在耶路撒冷的角门和谷门,并城墙转弯之处,建筑城楼,且甚坚固。 
 10 又在旷野与高原和平原,建筑望楼,挖了许多井,因他的牲畜甚多。又在山地和佳美之地,有农夫和修理葡萄园的人,因为他喜悦农事。 
 11 乌西雅又有军兵,照书记耶利和官长玛西雅所数点的,在王的一个将军哈拿尼雅手下,分队出战。 
 12 族长,大能勇士的总数共有二千六百人, 
 13 他们手下的军兵共有三十万七千五百人,都有大能,善于争战,帮助王攻击仇敌。 
 14 乌西雅为全军预备盾牌,枪,盔,甲,弓,和甩石的机弦, 
 15 又在耶路撒冷使巧匠作机器,安在城楼和角楼上,用以射箭发石。乌西雅的名声传到远方。因为他得了非常的帮助,甚是强盛。 
 16 他既强盛,就心高气傲,以致行事邪僻,干犯耶和华他的神,进耶和华的殿,要在香坛上烧香。 
 17 祭司亚撒利雅率领耶和华勇敢的祭司八十人,跟随他进去。 
 18 他们就阻挡乌西雅王,对他说,乌西雅阿,给耶和华烧香不是你的事,乃是亚伦子孙承接圣职祭司的事。你出圣殿吧。因为你犯了罪。你行这事,耶和华神必不使你得荣耀。 
 19 乌西雅就发怒,手拿香炉要烧香。他向祭司发怒的时候,在耶和华殿中香坛旁众祭司面前,额上忽然发出大麻疯。 
 20 大祭司亚撒利雅和众祭司观看,见他额上发出大麻疯,就催他出殿。他自己也急速出去,因为耶和华降灾与他。 
 21 乌西雅王长大麻疯直到死日,因此住在别的宫里,与耶和华的殿隔绝。他儿子约坦管理家事,治理国民。 
 22 乌西雅其余的事,自始至终都是亚摩斯的儿子先知以赛亚所记的。 
 23 乌西雅与他列祖同睡,葬在王陵的田间他列祖的坟地里。因为人说,他是长大麻疯的。他儿子约坦接续他作王。

Chapter 26

1 Then all the people of Judah took Uzziah, who was sixteen years old, and made him king in the room of his father Amaziah.

2 He built Eloth, and restored it to Judah, after that the king slept with his fathers.

3 Sixteen years old was Uzziah when he began to reign, and he reigned fifty and two years in Jerusalem. His mother's name also was Jecoliah of Jerusalem.

4 And he did that which was right in the sight of the LORD, according to all that his father Amaziah did.

5 And he sought God in the days of Zechariah, who had understanding in the visions of God: and as long as he sought the LORD, God made him to prosper.

6 And he went forth and warred against the Philistines, and brake down the wall of Gath, and the wall of Jabneh, and the wall of Ashdod, and built cities about Ashdod, and among the Philistines.

7 And God helped him against the Philistines, and against the Arabians that dwelt in Gurbaal, and the Mehunims.

8 And the Ammonites gave gifts to Uzziah: and his name spread abroad even to the entering in of Egypt; for he strengthened himself exceedingly.

9 Moreover Uzziah built towers in Jerusalem at the corner gate, and at the valley gate, and at the turning of the wall, and fortified them.

10 Also he built towers in the desert, and digged many wells: for he had much cattle, both in the low country, and in the plains: husbandmen also, and vine dressers in the mountains, and in Carmel: for he loved husbandry.

11 Moreover Uzziah had an host of fighting men, that went out to war by bands, according to the number of their account by the hand of Jeiel the scribe and Maaseiah the ruler, under the hand of Hananiah, one of the king's captains.

12 The whole number of the chief of the fathers of the mighty men of valour were two thousand and six hundred.

13 And under their hand was an army, three hundred thousand and seven thousand and five hundred, that made war with mighty power, to help the king against the enemy.

14 And Uzziah prepared for them throughout all the host shields, and spears, and helmets, and habergeons, and bows, and slings to cast stones.

15 And he made in Jerusalem engines, invented by cunning men, to be on the towers and upon the bulwarks, to shoot arrows and great stones withal. And his name spread far abroad; for he was marvellously helped, till he was strong.

16 But when he was strong, his heart was lifted up to his destruction: for he transgressed against the LORD his God, and went into the temple of the LORD to burn incense upon the altar of incense.

17 And Azariah the priest went in after him, and with him fourscore priests of the LORD, that were valiant men:

18 And they withstood Uzziah the king, and said unto him, It appertaineth not unto thee, Uzziah, to burn incense unto the LORD, but to the priests the sons of Aaron, that are consecrated to burn incense: go out of the sanctuary; for thou hast trespassed; neither shall it be for thine honour from the LORD God.

19 Then Uzziah was wroth, and had a censer in his hand to burn incense: and while he was wroth with the priests, the leprosy even rose up in his forehead before the priests in the house of the LORD, from beside the incense altar.

20 And Azariah the chief priest, and all the priests, looked upon him, and, behold, he was leprous in his forehead, and they thrust him out from thence; yea, himself hasted also to go out, because the LORD had smitten him.

21 And Uzziah the king was a leper unto the day of his death, and dwelt in a several house, being a leper; for he was cut off from the house of the LORD: and Jotham his son was over the king's house, judging the people of the land.

22 Now the rest of the acts of Uzziah, first and last, did Isaiah the prophet, the son of Amoz, write.

23 So Uzziah slept with his fathers, and they buried him with his fathers in the field of the burial which belonged to the kings; for they said, He is a leper: and Jotham his son reigned in his stead.

Chapter 27

1 Jotham was twenty and five years old when he began to reign, and he reigned sixteen years in Jerusalem. His mother's name also was Jerushah, the daughter of Zadok.

2 And he did that which was right in the sight of the LORD, according to all that his father Uzziah did: howbeit he entered not into the temple of the LORD. And the people did yet corruptly.

3 He built the high gate of the house of the LORD, and on the wall of Ophel he built much.

4 Moreover he built cities in the mountains of Judah, and in the forests he built castles and towers.

5 He fought also with the king of the Ammonites, and prevailed against them. And the children of Ammon gave him the same year an hundred talents of silver, and ten thousand measures of wheat, and ten thousand of barley. So much did the children of Ammon pay unto him, both the second year, and the third.

6 So Jotham became mighty, because he prepared his ways before the LORD his God.

7 Now the rest of the acts of Jotham, and all his wars, and his ways, lo, they are written in the book of the kings of Israel and Judah.

8 He was five and twenty years old when he began to reign, and reigned sixteen years in Jerusalem.

9 And Jotham slept with his fathers, and they buried him in the city of David: and Ahaz his son reigned in his stead.
