1 Kings 15

GNT 1 In the eighteenth year of the reign of King Jeroboam of Israel, Abijah became king of Judah, NIV 1 In the eighteenth year of the reign of Jeroboam son of Nebat, Abijah became king of Judah, GNT 2 and he ruled three years in Jerusalem. His mother was Maacah, the daughter of Absalom. NIV 2 and he reigned in Jerusalem three years. His mother’s name was Maakah daughter of Abishalom. GNT 3 He committed the same sins as his father and was not completely loyal to the Lord his God, as his great-grandfather David had been. NIV 3 He committed all the sins his father had done before him; his heart was not fully devoted to the LORD his God, as the heart of David his forefather had been. GNT 4 But for David's sake the Lord his God gave Abijah a son to rule after him in Jerusalem and to keep Jerusalem secure. NIV 4 Nevertheless, for David’s sake the LORD his God gave him a lamp in Jerusalem by raising up a son to succeed him and by making Jerusalem strong. GNT 5 The Lord did this because David had done what pleased him and had never disobeyed any of his commands, except in the case of Uriah the Hittite. NIV 5 For David had done what was right in the eyes of the LORD and had not failed to keep any of the LORD’s commands all the days of his life—except in the case of Uriah the Hittite. GNT 6 The war which had begun between Rehoboam and Jeroboam continued throughout Abijah's lifetime. NIV 6 There was war between Abijah and Jeroboam throughout Abijah’s lifetime. GNT 7 And everything else that Abijah did is recorded in [The History of the Kings of Judah.] NIV 7 As for the other events of Abijah’s reign, and all he did, are they not written in the book of the annals of the kings of Judah? There was war between Abijah and Jeroboam. GNT 8 Abijah died and was buried in David's City, and his son Asa succeeded him as king. NIV 8 And Abijah rested with his ancestors and was buried in the City of David. And Asa his son succeeded him as king. GNT 9 In the twentieth year of the reign of King Jeroboam of Israel, Asa became king of Judah, NIV 9 In the twentieth year of Jeroboam king of Israel, Asa became king of Judah, GNT 10 and he ruled forty-one years in Jerusalem. His grandmother was Maacah, the daughter of Absalom. NIV 10 and he reigned in Jerusalem forty-one years. His grandmother’s name was Maakah daughter of Abishalom. GNT 11 Asa did what pleased the Lord, as his ancestor David had done. NIV 11 Asa did what was right in the eyes of the LORD, as his father David had done. GNT 12 He expelled from the country all the male and female prostitutes serving at the pagan places of worship, and he removed all the idols his predecessors had made. NIV 12 He expelled the male shrine prostitutes from the land and got rid of all the idols his ancestors had made. GNT 13 He removed his grandmother Maacah from her position as queen mother, because she had made an obscene idol of the fertility goddess Asherah. Asa cut down the idol and burned it in Kidron Valley. NIV 13 He even deposed his grandmother Maakah from her position as queen mother, because she had made a repulsive image for the worship of Asherah. Asa cut it down and burned it in the Kidron Valley. GNT 14 Even though Asa did not destroy all the pagan places of worship, he remained faithful to the Lord all his life. NIV 14 Although he did not remove the high places, Asa’s heart was fully committed to the LORD all his life. GNT 15 He placed in the Temple all the objects his father had dedicated to God, as well as the gold and silver objects that he himself dedicated. NIV 15 He brought into the temple of the LORD the silver and gold and the articles that he and his father had dedicated. GNT 16 King Asa of Judah and King Baasha of Israel were constantly at war with each other as long as they were in power. NIV 16 There was war between Asa and Baasha king of Israel throughout their reigns. GNT 17 Baasha invaded Judah and started to fortify Ramah in order to cut off all traffic in and out of Judah. NIV 17 Baasha king of Israel went up against Judah and fortified Ramah to prevent anyone from leaving or entering the territory of Asa king of Judah. GNT 18 So King Asa took all the silver and gold that was left in the Temple and the palace, and sent it by some of his officials to Damascus, to King Benhadad of Syria, the son of Tabrimmon and grandson of Hezion, with this message: NIV 18 Asa then took all the silver and gold that was left in the treasuries of the LORD’s temple and of his own palace. He entrusted it to his officials and sent them to Ben-Hadad son of Tabrimmon, the son of Hezion, the king of Aram, who was ruling in Damascus. GNT 19 "Let us be allies, as our fathers were. This silver and gold is a present for you. Now break your alliance with King Baasha of Israel, so that he will have to pull his troops out of my territory." NIV 19 “Let there be a treaty between me and you,” he said, “as there was between my father and your father. See, I am sending you a gift of silver and gold. Now break your treaty with Baasha king of Israel so he will withdraw from me.” GNT 20 King Benhadad agreed to Asa's proposal and sent his commanding officers and their armies to attack the cities of Israel. They captured Ijon, Dan, Abel Beth Maacah, the area near Lake Galilee, and the whole territory of Naphtali. NIV 20 Ben-Hadad agreed with King Asa and sent the commanders of his forces against the towns of Israel. He conquered Ijon, Dan, Abel Beth Maakah and all Kinnereth in addition to Naphtali. GNT 21 When King Baasha heard what had happened, he stopped fortifying Ramah and went to Tirzah. NIV 21 When Baasha heard this, he stopped building Ramah and withdrew to Tirzah. GNT 22 Then King Asa sent out an order throughout all of Judah requiring everyone, without exception, to help carry away from Ramah the stones and timber that Baasha had been using to fortify it. With this material Asa fortified Mizpah and Geba, a city in the territory of Benjamin. NIV 22 Then King Asa issued an order to all Judah—no one was exempt—and they carried away from Ramah the stones and timber Baasha had been using there. With them King Asa built up Geba in Benjamin, and also Mizpah. GNT 23 Everything else that King Asa did, his brave deeds and the towns he fortified, are all recorded in [The History of the Kings of Judah.] But in his old age he was crippled by a foot disease. NIV 23 As for all the other events of Asa’s reign, all his achievements, all he did and the cities he built, are they not written in the book of the annals of the kings of Judah? In his old age, however, his feet became diseased. GNT 24 Asa died and was buried in the royal tombs in David's City, and his son Jehoshaphat succeeded him as king. NIV 24 Then Asa rested with his ancestors and was buried with them in the city of his father David. And Jehoshaphat his son succeeded him as king. GNT 25 In the second year of the reign of King Asa of Judah, King Jeroboam's son Nadab became king of Israel, and he ruled for two years. NIV 25 Nadab son of Jeroboam became king of Israel in the second year of Asa king of Judah, and he reigned over Israel two years. GNT 26 Like his father before him, he sinned against the Lord and led Israel into sin. NIV 26 He did evil in the eyes of the LORD, following the ways of his father and committing the same sin his father had caused Israel to commit. GNT 27 Baasha son of Ahijah, of the tribe of Issachar, plotted against Nadab and killed him as Nadab and his army were besieging the city of Gibbethon in Philistia. NIV 27 Baasha son of Ahijah from the tribe of Issachar plotted against him, and he struck him down at Gibbethon, a Philistine town, while Nadab and all Israel were besieging it. GNT 28 This happened during the third year of the reign of King Asa of Judah. And so Baasha succeeded Nadab as king of Israel. NIV 28 Baasha killed Nadab in the third year of Asa king of Judah and succeeded him as king. GNT 29 At once he began killing all the members of Jeroboam's family. In accordance with what the Lord had said through his servant, the prophet Ahijah from Shiloh, all of Jeroboam's family were killed; not one survived. NIV 29 As soon as he began to reign, he killed Jeroboam’s whole family. He did not leave Jeroboam anyone that breathed, but destroyed them all, according to the word of the LORD given through his servant Ahijah the Shilonite. GNT 30 This happened because Jeroboam aroused the anger of the Lord, the God of Israel, by the sins that he committed and that he caused Israel to commit. NIV 30 This happened because of the sins Jeroboam had committed and had caused Israel to commit, and because he aroused the anger of the LORD, the God of Israel. GNT 31 Everything else that Nadab did is recorded in [The History of the Kings of Israel.] NIV 31 As for the other events of Nadab’s reign, and all he did, are they not written in the book of the annals of the kings of Israel? GNT 32 King Asa of Judah and King Baasha of Israel were constantly at war with each other as long as they were in power. NIV 32 There was war between Asa and Baasha king of Israel throughout their reigns. GNT 33 In the third year of the reign of King Asa of Judah, Baasha son of Ahijah became king of all Israel, and he ruled in Tirzah for twenty-four years. NIV 33 In the third year of Asa king of Judah, Baasha son of Ahijah became king of all Israel in Tirzah, and he reigned twenty-four years. GNT 34 Like King Jeroboam before him, he sinned against the Lord and led Israel into sin. NIV 34 He did evil in the eyes of the LORD, following the ways of Jeroboam and committing the same sin Jeroboam had caused Israel to commit.
