1 Now Elisha had spoken to the woman, whose son he had restored to life, saying, Arise, and go you and your household, and sojourn wherever you can sojourn: for the LORD has called for a famine; and it shall also come on the land seven years. 2 The woman arose, and did according to the word of the man of God; and she went with her household, and sojourned in the land of the Pelishtim seven years. 3 It happened at the seven years' end, that the woman returned out of the land of the Pelishtim: and she went forth to cry to the king for her house and for her land. 4 Now the king was talking with Gechazi the servant of the man of God, saying, Please tell me all the great things that Elisha has done. 5 It happened, as he was telling the king how he had restored to life him who was dead, that behold, the woman, whose son he had restored to life, cried to the king for her house and for her land. Gechazi said, My lord, O king, this is the woman, and this is her son, whom Elisha restored to life. 6 When the king asked the woman, she told him. So the king appointed to her a certain officer, saying, Restore all that was hers, and all the fruits of the field since the day that she left the land, even until now. 7 Elisha came to Dammesek; and Ben-Hadad the king of Aram was sick; and it was told him, saying, The man of God is come here. 8 The king said to Haza'el, Take a present in your hand, and go, meet the man of God, and inquire of the LORD by him, saying, Shall I recover of this sickness? 9 So Haza'el went to meet him, and took a present with him, even of every good thing of Dammesek, forty camels' burden, and came and stood before him, and said, Your son Ben-Hadad king of Aram has sent me to you, saying, Shall I recover of this sickness? 10 Elisha said to him, Go, tell him, You shall surely recover; however the LORD has shown me that he shall surely die. 11 He settled his gaze steadfastly [on him], until he was ashamed: and the man of God wept. 12 Haza'el said, Why weeps my lord? He answered, Because I know the evil that you will do to the children of Yisra'el: their strongholds will you set on fire, and their young men will you kill with the sword, and will dash in pieces their little ones, and rip up their women with child. 13 Haza'el said, But what is your servant, who is but a dog, that he should do this great thing? Elisha answered, the LORD has shown me that you shall be king over Aram. 14 Then he departed from Elisha, and came to his master; who said to him, What said Elisha to you? He answered, He told me that you would surely recover. 15 It happened on the next day, that he took the coverlet, and dipped it in water, and spread it on his face, so that he died: and Haza'el reigned in his place. 16 In the fifth year of Yoram the son of Ach'av king of Yisra'el, Yehoshafat being then king of Yehudah, Yehoram the son of Yehoshafat king of Yehudah began to reign. 17 Thirty-two years old was he when he began to reign; and he reigned eight years in Yerushalayim. 18 He walked in the way of the kings of Yisra'el, as did the house of Ach'av: for he had the daughter of Ach'av as wife; and he did that which was evil in the sight of the LORD. 19 However the LORD would not destroy Yehudah, for David his servant's sake, as he promised him to give to him a lamp for his children always. 20 In his days Edom revolted from under the hand of Yehudah, and made a king over themselves. 21 Then Yoram passed over to Tza`ir, and all his chariots with him: and he rose up by night, and struck the Edom who surrounded him, and the captains of the chariots; and the people fled to their tents. 22 So Edom revolted from under the hand of Yehudah to this day. Then did Livna revolt at the same time. 23 The rest of the acts of Yoram, and all that he did, aren't they written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Yehudah? 24 Yoram slept with his fathers, and was buried with his fathers in the city of David; and Achazyah his son reigned in his place. 25 In the twelfth year of Yoram the son of Ach'av king of Yisra'el did Achazyah the son of Yehoram king of Yehudah begin to reign. 26 Twenty-two years old was Achazyah when he began to reign; and he reigned one year in Yerushalayim. His mother's name was `Atalyah the daughter of `Omri king of Yisra'el. 27 He walked in the way of the house of Ach'av, and did that which was evil in the sight of the LORD, as did the house of Ach'av; for he was the son-in-law of the house of Ach'av. 28 He went with Yoram the son of Ach'av to war against Haza'el king of Aram at Ramot-Gil`ad: and the Aram wounded Yoram. 29 King Yoram returned to be healed in Yizre`el of the wounds which the Aram had given him at Ramah, when he fought against Haza'el king of Aram. Achazyah the son of Yehoram king of Yehudah went down to see Yoram the son of Ach'av in Yizre`el, because he was sick.
