9 Then Jeho'ram passed over with his commanders and all his chariots, and he rose by night and smote the E'domites who had surrounded him and his chariot commanders. 9 So Jehoram went there with his officers and all his chariots.

13 but have walked in the way of the kings of Israel, and have led Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem into unfaithfulness, as the house of Ahab led Israel into unfaithfulness, and also you have killed your brothers, of your father's house, who were better than yourself; 13 But you have walked in the ways of the kings of Israel, and you have led Judah and the people of Jerusalem to prostitute themselves, just as the house of Ahab did. You have also murdered your own brothers, members of your father's house, men who were better than you.
14 behold, the LORD will bring a great plague on your people, your children, your wives, and all your possessions, 14 So now the LORD is about to strike your people, your sons, your wives and everything that is yours, with a heavy blow.
15 and you yourself will have a severe sickness with a disease of your bowels, until your bowels come out because of the disease, day by day.'" 15 You yourself will be very ill with a lingering disease of the bowels, until the disease causes your bowels to come out.' "
