1 Kings 22

CSB 1 There was a lull of three years without war between Aram and Israel. NIV 1 For three years there was no war between Aram and Israel. CSB 2 However, in the third year, Jehoshaphat king of Judah went to visit the king of Israel. NIV 2 But in the third year Jehoshaphat king of Judah went down to see the king of Israel. CSB 3 The king of Israel had said to his servants, "Don't you know that Ramoth-gilead is ours, but we have failed to take it from the hand of the king of Aram?" NIV 3 The king of Israel had said to his officials, “Don’t you know that Ramoth Gilead belongs to us and yet we are doing nothing to retake it from the king of Aram?” CSB 4 So he asked Jehoshaphat, "Will you go with me to fight Ramoth-gilead?" Jehoshaphat replied to the king of Israel, "I am as you are, my people as your people, my horses as your horses." NIV 4 So he asked Jehoshaphat, “Will you go with me to fight against Ramoth Gilead?” Jehoshaphat replied to the king of Israel, “I am as you are, my people as your people, my horses as your horses.” CSB 5 But Jehoshaphat said to the king of Israel, "First, please ask what the Lord's will is." NIV 5 But Jehoshaphat also said to the king of Israel, “First seek the counsel of the LORD.” CSB 6 So the king of Israel gathered the prophets, about 400 men, and asked them, "Should I go against Ramoth-gilead for war or should I refrain?" They replied, "March up, and the Lord will hand it over to the king." NIV 6 So the king of Israel brought together the prophets—about four hundred men—and asked them, “Shall I go to war against Ramoth Gilead, or shall I refrain?” “Go,” they answered, “for the Lord will give it into the king’s hand.” CSB 7 But Jehoshaphat asked, "Isn't there a prophet of Yahweh here any more? Let's ask him." NIV 7 But Jehoshaphat asked, “Is there no longer a prophet of the LORD here whom we can inquire of?” CSB 8 The king of Israel said to Jehoshaphat, "There is still one man who can ask the Lord, but I hate him because he never prophesies good about me, but only disaster. He is Micaiah son of Imlah." "The king shouldn't say that!" Jehoshaphat replied. NIV 8 The king of Israel answered Jehoshaphat, “There is still one prophet through whom we can inquire of the LORD, but I hate him because he never prophesies anything good about me, but always bad. He is Micaiah son of Imlah.” “The king should not say such a thing,” Jehoshaphat replied. CSB 9 So the king of Israel called an officer and said, "Hurry [and get] Micaiah son of Imlah!" NIV 9 So the king of Israel called one of his officials and said, “Bring Micaiah son of Imlah at once.” CSB 10 Now the king of Israel and Jehoshaphat king of Judah, clothed in royal attire, were each sitting on his own throne. They were on the threshing floor at the entrance to Samaria's gate, and all the prophets were prophesying in front of them. NIV 10 Dressed in their royal robes, the king of Israel and Jehoshaphat king of Judah were sitting on their thrones at the threshing floor by the entrance of the gate of Samaria, with all the prophets prophesying before them. CSB 11 Then Zedekiah son of Chenaanah made iron horns and said, "This is what the Lord says: 'You will gore the Arameans with these until they are finished off.' " NIV 11 Now Zedekiah son of Kenaanah had made iron horns and he declared, “This is what the LORD says: ‘With these you will gore the Arameans until they are destroyed.’ ” CSB 12 And all the prophets were prophesying the same: "March up to Ramoth-gilead and succeed, for the Lord will hand it over to the king." NIV 12 All the other prophets were prophesying the same thing. “Attack Ramoth Gilead and be victorious,” they said, “for the LORD will give it into the king’s hand.” CSB 13 The messenger who went to call Micaiah instructed him, "Look, the words of the prophets are unanimously favorable for the king. So let your words be like theirs, and speak favorably." NIV 13 The messenger who had gone to summon Micaiah said to him, “Look, the other prophets without exception are predicting success for the king. Let your word agree with theirs, and speak favorably.” CSB 14 But Micaiah said, "As the Lord lives, I will say whatever the Lord says to me." NIV 14 But Micaiah said, “As surely as the LORD lives, I can tell him only what the LORD tells me.” CSB 15 So he went to the king, and the king asked him, "Micaiah, should we go to Ramoth-gilead for war, or should we refrain?" Micaiah told him, "March up and succeed. The Lord will hand it over to the king." NIV 15 When he arrived, the king asked him, “Micaiah, shall we go to war against Ramoth Gilead, or not?” “Attack and be victorious,” he answered, “for the LORD will give it into the king’s hand.” CSB 16 But the king said to him, "How many times must I make you swear not to tell me anything but the truth in the name of the Lord?" NIV 16 The king said to him, “How many times must I make you swear to tell me nothing but the truth in the name of the LORD?” CSB 17 So Micaiah said: I saw all Israel scattered on the hills like sheep without a shepherd. And the Lord said, 'They have no master; let everyone return home in peace.' NIV 17 Then Micaiah answered, “I saw all Israel scattered on the hills like sheep without a shepherd, and the LORD said, ‘These people have no master. Let each one go home in peace.’ ” CSB 18 So the king of Israel said to Jehoshaphat, "Didn't I tell you he never prophesies good about me, but only disaster?" NIV 18 The king of Israel said to Jehoshaphat, “Didn’t I tell you that he never prophesies anything good about me, but only bad?” CSB 19 Then Micaiah said, "Therefore, hear the word of the Lord: I saw the Lord sitting on His throne, and the whole heavenly host was standing by Him at His right hand and at His left hand. NIV 19 Micaiah continued, “Therefore hear the word of the LORD: I saw the LORD sitting on his throne with all the multitudes of heaven standing around him on his right and on his left. CSB 20 And the Lord said, 'Who will entice Ahab to march up and fall at Ramoth-gilead?' So one was saying this and another was saying that. NIV 20 And the LORD said, ‘Who will entice Ahab into attacking Ramoth Gilead and going to his death there?’ “One suggested this, and another that. CSB 21 "Then a spirit came forward, stood before the Lord, and said, 'I will entice him.' NIV 21 Finally, a spirit came forward, stood before the LORD and said, ‘I will entice him.’ CSB 22 "The Lord asked him, 'How?' "He said, 'I will go and become a lying spirit in the mouth of all his prophets.' "Then He said, 'You will certainly entice him and prevail. Go and do that.' NIV 22 “ ‘By what means?’ the LORD asked. “ ‘I will go out and be a deceiving spirit in the mouths of all his prophets,’ he said. “ ‘You will succeed in enticing him,’ said the LORD. ‘Go and do it.’ CSB 23 "You see, the Lord has put a lying spirit into the mouth of all these prophets of yours, and the Lord has pronounced disaster against you." NIV 23 “So now the LORD has put a deceiving spirit in the mouths of all these prophets of yours. The LORD has decreed disaster for you.” CSB 24 Then Zedekiah son of Chenaanah came up, hit Micaiah in the face, and demanded, "Did the Spirit of the Lord leave me to speak to you?" NIV 24 Then Zedekiah son of Kenaanah went up and slapped Micaiah in the face. “Which way did the spirit from the LORD go when he went from me to speak to you?” he asked. CSB 25 Micaiah replied, "You will soon see when you go to hide yourself in an inner chamber on that day." NIV 25 Micaiah replied, “You will find out on the day you go to hide in an inner room.” CSB 26 Then the king of Israel ordered, "Take Micaiah and return him to Amon, the governor of the city, and to Joash, the king's son, NIV 26 The king of Israel then ordered, “Take Micaiah and send him back to Amon the ruler of the city and to Joash the king’s son CSB 27 and say, 'This is what the king says: Put this guy in prison and feed him only bread and water until I come back safely.' " NIV 27 and say, ‘This is what the king says: Put this fellow in prison and give him nothing but bread and water until I return safely.’ ” CSB 28 But Micaiah said, "If you ever return safely, the Lord has not spoken through me." Then he said, "Listen, all you people!" NIV 28 Micaiah declared, “If you ever return safely, the LORD has not spoken through me.” Then he added, “Mark my words, all you people!” CSB 29 Then the king of Israel and Judah's King Jehoshaphat went up to Ramoth-gilead. NIV 29 So the king of Israel and Jehoshaphat king of Judah went up to Ramoth Gilead. CSB 30 But the king of Israel said to Jehoshaphat, "I will disguise myself and go into battle, but you wear your royal attire." So the king of Israel disguised himself and went into battle. NIV 30 The king of Israel said to Jehoshaphat, “I will enter the battle in disguise, but you wear your royal robes.” So the king of Israel disguised himself and went into battle. CSB 31 Now the king of Aram had ordered his 32 chariot commanders, "Do not fight with anyone at all except the king of Israel." NIV 31 Now the king of Aram had ordered his thirty-two chariot commanders, “Do not fight with anyone, small or great, except the king of Israel.” CSB 32 When the chariot commanders saw Jehoshaphat, they shouted, "He must be the king of Israel!" So they turned to fight against him, but Jehoshaphat cried out. NIV 32 When the chariot commanders saw Jehoshaphat, they thought, “Surely this is the king of Israel.” So they turned to attack him, but when Jehoshaphat cried out, CSB 33 When the chariot commanders saw that he was not the king of Israel, they turned back from pursuing him. NIV 33 the chariot commanders saw that he was not the king of Israel and stopped pursuing him. CSB 34 But a man drew his bow without taking special aim and struck the king of Israel through the joints of his armor. So he said to his charioteer, "Turn around and take me out of the battle, for I am badly wounded!" NIV 34 But someone drew his bow at random and hit the king of Israel between the sections of his armor. The king told his chariot driver, “Wheel around and get me out of the fighting. I’ve been wounded.” CSB 35 The battle raged throughout that day, and the king was propped up in his chariot facing the Arameans. He died that evening, and blood from his wound flowed into the bottom of the chariot. NIV 35 All day long the battle raged, and the king was propped up in his chariot facing the Arameans. The blood from his wound ran onto the floor of the chariot, and that evening he died. CSB 36 Then the cry rang out in the army as the sun set, declaring: Each man to his own city, and each man to his own land! NIV 36 As the sun was setting, a cry spread through the army: “Every man to his town. Every man to his land!” CSB 37 So the king died and was brought to Samaria. They buried the king in Samaria. NIV 37 So the king died and was brought to Samaria, and they buried him there. CSB 38 Then someone washed the chariot at the pool of Samaria.
