New Revised Standard (NRS) New International Version (NIV)
17 Abijah and his army defeated them with great slaughter; five hundred thousand picked men of Israel fell slain. 17 Abijah and his men inflicted heavy losses on them, so that there were five hundred thousand casualties among Israel's able men.
18 Thus the Israelites were subdued at that time, and the people of Judah prevailed, because they relied on the Lord, the God of their ancestors. 18 The men of Israel were subdued on that occasion, and the men of Judah were victorious because they relied on the LORD, the God of their fathers.
19 Abijah pursued Jeroboam, and took cities from him: Bethel with its villages and Jeshanah with its villages and Ephron with its villages. 19 Abijah pursued Jeroboam and took from him the towns of Bethel, Jeshanah and Ephron, with their surrounding villages.
20 Jeroboam did not recover his power in the days of Abijah; the Lord struck him down, and he died. 20 Jeroboam did not regain power during the time of Abijah. And the LORD struck him down and he died.
21 But Abijah grew strong. He took fourteen wives, and became the father of twenty-two sons and sixteen daughters. 21 But Abijah grew in strength. He married fourteen wives and had twenty-two sons and sixteen daughters.
22 The rest of the acts of Abijah, his behavior and his deeds, are written in the story of the prophet Iddo. 22 The other events of Abijah's reign, what he did and what he said, are written in the annotations of the prophet Iddo.
