View In My Bible
1 Now in the eighteenth year of king Yarov`am the son of Nevat began Aviyam to reign over Yehudah. 2 Three years reigned he in Yerushalayim: and his mother's name was Ma`akhah the daughter of Avishalom. 3 He walked in all the sins of his father, which he had done before him; and his heart was not perfect with the LORD his God, as the heart of David his father. 4 Nevertheless for David's sake did the LORD his God give him a lamp in Yerushalayim, to set up his son after him, and to establish Yerushalayim; 5 because David did that which was right in the eyes of the LORD, and didn't turn aside from anything that he commanded him all the days of his life, except only in the matter of Uriyah the Hittite. 6 Now there was war between Rechav`am and Yarov`am all the days of his life. 7 The rest of the acts of Aviyam, and all that he did, aren't they written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Yehudah? There was war between Aviyam and Yarov`am. 8 Aviyam slept with his fathers; and they buried him in the city of David: and Asa his son reigned in his place. 9 In the twentieth year of Yarov`am king of Yisra'el began Asa to reign over Yehudah. 10 Forty-one years reigned he in Yerushalayim: and his mother's name was Ma`akhah the daughter of Avishalom. 11 Asa did that which was right in the eyes of the LORD, as did David his father. 12 He put away the sodomites out of the land, and removed all the idols that his fathers had made. 13 Also Ma`akhah his mother he removed from being queen, because she had made an abominable image for an Asherah; and Asa cut down her image, and burnt it at the brook Kidron. 14 But the high places were not taken away: nevertheless the heart of Asa was perfect with the LORD all his days. 15 He brought into the house of the LORD the things that his father had dedicated, and the things that himself had dedicated, silver, and gold, and vessels. 16 There was war between Asa and Ba`sha king of Yisra'el all their days. 17 Ba`sha king of Yisra'el went up against Yehudah, and built Ramah, that he might not allow anyone to go out or come in to Asa king of Yehudah. 18 Then Asa took all the silver and the gold that were left in the treasures of the house of the LORD, and the treasures of the king's house, and delivered them into the hand of his servants; and king Asa sent them to Ben-Hadad, the son of Tavrimon, the son of Hezyon, king of Aram, who lived at Dammesek, saying, 19 [There is] a league between me and you, between my father and your father: behold, I have sent to you a present of silver and gold; go, break your league with Ba`sha king of Yisra'el, that he may depart from me. 20 Ben-Hadad listened to king Asa, and sent the captains of his armies against the cities of Yisra'el, and struck `Iyon, and Dan, and Avel-Beit-Ma`akhah, and all Kinnarot, with all the land of Naftali. 21 It happened, when Ba`sha heard of it, that he left off building Ramah, and lived in Tirtzah. 22 Then king Asa made a proclamation to all Yehudah; none was exempted: and they carried away the stones of Ramah, and the timber of it, with which Ba`sha had built; and king Asa built therewith Geva of Binyamin, and Mitzpah. 23 Now the rest of all the acts of Asa, and all his might, and all that he did, and the cities which he built, aren't they written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Yehudah? But in the time of his old age he was diseased in his feet. 24 Asa slept with his fathers, and was buried with his fathers in the city of David his father; and Yehoshafat his son reigned in his place. 25 Nadav the son of Yarov`am began to reign over Yisra'el in the second year of Asa king of Yehudah; and he reigned over Yisra'el two years. 26 He did that which was evil in the sight of the LORD, and walked in the way of his father, and in his sin with which he made Yisra'el to sin. 27 Ba`sha the son of Achiyah, of the house of Yissakhar, conspired against him; and Ba`sha struck him at Gibbeton, which belonged to the Pelishtim; for Nadav and all Yisra'el were laying siege to Gibbeton. 28 Even in the third year of Asa king of Yehudah did Ba`sha kill him, and reigned in his place. 29 It happened that, as soon as he was king, he struck all the house of Yarov`am: he didn't leave to Yarov`am any who breathed, until he had destroyed him; according to the saying of the LORD, which he spoke by his servant Achiyah the Shiloni; 30 for the sins of Yarov`am which he sinned, and with which he made Yisra'el to sin, because of his provocation with which he provoked the LORD, the God of Yisra'el, to anger. 31 Now the rest of the acts of Nadav, and all that he did, aren't they written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Yisra'el? 32 There was war between Asa and Ba`sha king of Yisra'el all their days. 33 In the third year of Asa king of Yehudah began Ba`sha the son of Achiyah to reign over all Yisra'el in Tirtzah, [and reigned] twenty-four years. 34 He did that which was evil in the sight of the LORD, and walked in the way of Yarov`am, and in his sin with which he made Yisra'el to sin.
