2 Kings 13:10-25 (New American Standard)

View In My Bible
10 In the thirty-seventh year of Joash king of Judah, Jehoash the son of Jehoahaz became king over Israel in Samaria, and reigned sixteen years. 11 He did evil in the sight of the LORD; he did not turn away from all the sins of Jeroboam the son of Nebat, with which he made Israel sin, but he walked in athem. 12 1Now the rest of the acts of Joash and all that he did and his might with which he fought against Amaziah king of Judah, are they not written in the Book of the Chronicles of the Kings of Israel? 13 So Joash slept with his fathers, and Jeroboam sat on his throne; and Joash was buried in Samaria with the kings of Israel.

Death of Elisha

14 When Elisha bbecame sick with the illness of which he was to die, Joash the king of Israel came down to him and wept over chim and said, "2My father, my father, the chariots of Israel and its horsemen!" 15 Elisha said to him, "Take a bow and arrows." So he dtook a bow and arrows. 16 Then he said to the king of Israel, "Put your hand on the bow." And he put his hand on it, then Elisha laid his hands on the king's hands. 17 He said, "Open the window toward the east," and he opened it. Then Elisha said, "Shoot!" And he shot. And he said, "The LORD'S arrow of victory, even the arrow of victory over Aram; for you will edefeat the Arameans at 3Aphek until you have fdestroyed them." 18 Then he said, "Take the arrows," and he took them. And he said to the king of Israel, "Strike the ground," and he struck it three times and gstopped. 19 So 4the man of God was angry with him and said, "You should have struck five or six times, then you would have struck Aram until you would have hdestroyed it. But now you shall strike Aram 5only three times." 20 Elisha died, and they buried him. Now 6the bands of the Moabites would invade the land in the spring of the year. 21 As they were burying a man, behold, they saw a marauding band; and they cast the man into the grave of Elisha. And when the man itouched the bones of Elisha he 7revived and stood up on his feet. 22 Now 8Hazael king of Aram had oppressed Israel all the days of Jehoahaz. 23 But the 9LORD was gracious to them and 10had compassion on them and turned to them because of 11His covenant with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, and would not destroy them or cast them from His presence until now. 24 When Hazael king of Aram died, Ben-hadad his son became king in his place. 25 Then 12Jehoash the son of Jehoahaz took again from the hand of Ben-hadad the son of Hazael the cities which he had taken in war from the hand of Jehoahaz his father. 13Three times Joash jdefeated him and recovered the cities of Israel.
