2 Chronicles 18

HNV 1 Now Yehoshafat had riches and honor in abundance; and he joined affinity with Ach'av. NIV 1 Now Jehoshaphat had great wealth and honor, and he allied himself with Ahab by marriage. HNV 2 After certain years he went down to Ach'av to Shomron. Ach'av killed sheep and oxen for him in abundance, and for the people who were with him, and moved him to go up [with him] to Ramot-Gil`ad. NIV 2 Some years later he went down to see Ahab in Samaria. Ahab slaughtered many sheep and cattle for him and the people with him and urged him to attack Ramoth Gilead. HNV 3 Ach'av king of Yisra'el said to Yehoshafat king of Yehudah, Will you go with me to Ramot-Gil`ad? He answered him, I am as you are, and my people as your people; and [we will be] with you in the war. NIV 3 Ahab king of Israel asked Jehoshaphat king of Judah, “Will you go with me against Ramoth Gilead?” Jehoshaphat replied, “I am as you are, and my people as your people; we will join you in the war.” HNV 4 Yehoshafat said to the king of Yisra'el, Please inquire first for the word of the LORD. NIV 4 But Jehoshaphat also said to the king of Israel, “First seek the counsel of the LORD.” HNV 5 Then the king of Yisra'el gathered the prophets together, four hundred men, and said to them, Shall we go to Ramot-Gil`ad to battle, or shall I forbear? They said, Go up; for God will deliver it into the hand of the king. NIV 5 So the king of Israel brought together the prophets—four hundred men—and asked them, “Shall we go to war against Ramoth Gilead, or shall I not?” “Go,” they answered, “for God will give it into the king’s hand.” HNV 6 But Yehoshafat said, Isn't there here a prophet of the LORD besides, that we may inquire of him? NIV 6 But Jehoshaphat asked, “Is there no longer a prophet of the LORD here whom we can inquire of?” HNV 7 The king of Yisra'el said to Yehoshafat, There is yet one man by whom we may inquire of the LORD: but I hate him; for he never prophesies good concerning me, but always evil: the same is Mikhayahu the son of Imla. Yehoshafat said, Don't let the king say so. NIV 7 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. HNV 8 Then the king of Yisra'el called an officer, and said, Get quickly Mikhayahu the son of Imla. NIV 8 So the king of Israel called one of his officials and said, “Bring Micaiah son of Imlah at once.” HNV 9 Now the king of Yisra'el and Yehoshafat the king of Yehudah sat each on his throne, arrayed in their robes, and they were sitting in an open place at the entrance of the gate of Shomron; and all the prophets were prophesying before them. NIV 9 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. HNV 10 Tzidkiyahu the son of Kena`anah made him horns of iron, and said, Thus says the LORD, With these shall you push the Aram, until they be consumed. NIV 10 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.’ ” HNV 11 All the prophets prophesied so, saying, Go up to Ramot-Gil`ad, and prosper; for the LORD will deliver it into the hand of the king. NIV 11 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.” HNV 12 The messenger who went to call Mikhayahu spoke to him, saying, Behold, the words of the prophets [declare] good to the king with one mouth: let your word therefore, Please be like one of theirs, and speak you good. NIV 12 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.” HNV 13 Mikhayahu said, As the LORD lives, what my God says, that will I speak. NIV 13 But Micaiah said, “As surely as the LORD lives, I can tell him only what my God says.” HNV 14 When he was come to the king, the king said to him, Mikhayahu, shall we go to Ramot-Gil`ad to battle, or shall I forbear? He said, Go up, and prosper; and they shall be delivered into your hand. NIV 14 When he arrived, the king asked him, “Micaiah, shall we go to war against Ramoth Gilead, or shall I not?” “Attack and be victorious,” he answered, “for they will be given into your hand.” HNV 15 The king said to him, How many times shall I adjure you that you speak to me nothing but the truth in the name of the LORD? NIV 15 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?” HNV 16 He said, I saw all Yisra'el scattered on the mountains, as sheep that have no shepherd: and the LORD said, These have no master; let them return every man to his house in shalom. NIV 16 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.’ ” HNV 17 The king of Yisra'el said to Yehoshafat, Didn't I tell you that he would not prophesy good concerning me, but evil? NIV 17 The king of Israel said to Jehoshaphat, “Didn’t I tell you that he never prophesies anything good about me, but only bad?” HNV 18 [Mikhayahu] said, Therefore hear you the word of the LORD: I saw the LORD sitting on his throne, and all the host of heaven standing on his right hand and on his left. NIV 18 Micaiah continued, “Therefore hear the word of the LORD: I saw the LORD sitting on his throne with all the multitudes of heaven standing on his right and on his left. HNV 19 The LORD said, Who shall entice Ach'av king of Yisra'el, that he may go up and fall at Ramot-Gil`ad? One spoke saying after this manner, and another saying after that manner. NIV 19 And the LORD said, ‘Who will entice Ahab king of Israel into attacking Ramoth Gilead and going to his death there?’ “One suggested this, and another that. HNV 20 There came forth a spirit, and stood before the LORD, and said, I will entice him. The LORD said to him, 'How?' NIV 20 Finally, a spirit came forward, stood before the LORD and said, ‘I will entice him.’ “ ‘By what means?’ the LORD asked. HNV 21 He said, 'I will go forth, and will be a lying spirit in the mouth of all his prophets.' He said, 'You shall entice him, and shall prevail also: go forth, and do so.' NIV 21 “ ‘I will go 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.’ HNV 22 Now therefore, behold, the LORD has put a lying spirit in the mouth of these your prophets; and the LORD has spoken evil concerning you. NIV 22 “So now the LORD has put a deceiving spirit in the mouths of these prophets of yours. The LORD has decreed disaster for you.” HNV 23 Then Tzidkiyahu the son of Kena`anah came near, and struck Mikhayahu on the cheek, and said, Which way went the Spirit of the LORD from me to speak to you? NIV 23 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. HNV 24 Mikhayahu said, Behold, you shall see on that day, when you shall go into an inner chamber to hide yourself. NIV 24 Micaiah replied, “You will find out on the day you go to hide in an inner room.” HNV 25 The king of Yisra'el said, Take Mikhayahu, and carry him back to Amon the governor of the city, and to Yo'ash the king's son; NIV 25 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, HNV 26 and say, Thus says the king, Put this fellow in the prison, and feed him with bread of affliction and with water of affliction, until I return in shalom. NIV 26 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.’ ” HNV 27 Mikhayahu said, If you return at all in shalom, the LORD has not spoken by me. He said, Hear, you peoples, all of you. NIV 27 Micaiah declared, “If you ever return safely, the LORD has not spoken through me.” Then he added, “Mark my words, all you people!” HNV 28 So the king of Yisra'el and Yehoshafat the king of Yehudah went up to Ramot-Gil`ad. NIV 28 So the king of Israel and Jehoshaphat king of Judah went up to Ramoth Gilead. HNV 29 The king of Yisra'el said to Yehoshafat, I will disguise myself, and go into the battle; but put you on your robes. So the king of Yisra'el disguised himself; and they went into the battle. NIV 29 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. HNV 30 Now the king of Aram had commanded the captains of his chariots, saying, Fight neither with small nor great, save only with the king of Yisra'el. NIV 30 Now the king of Aram had ordered his chariot commanders, “Do not fight with anyone, small or great, except the king of Israel.” HNV 31 It happened, when the captains of the chariots saw Yehoshafat, that they said, It is the king of Yisra'el. Therefore they turned about to fight against him: but Yehoshafat cried out, and the LORD helped him; and God moved them [to depart] from him. NIV 31 When the chariot commanders saw Jehoshaphat, they thought, “This is the king of Israel.” So they turned to attack him, but Jehoshaphat cried out, and the LORD helped him. God drew them away from him, HNV 32 It happened, when the captains of the chariots saw that it was not the king of Yisra'el, that they turned back from pursuing him. NIV 32 for when the chariot commanders saw that he was not the king of Israel, they stopped pursuing him. HNV 33 A certain man drew his bow at a venture, and struck the king of Yisra'el between the joints of the armor. Therefore he said to the driver of the chariot, Turn your hand, and carry me out of the host; for I am sore wounded. NIV 33 But someone drew his bow at random and hit the king of Israel between the breastplate and the scale armor. The king told the chariot driver, “Wheel around and get me out of the fighting. I’ve been wounded.” HNV 34 The battle increased that day: however the king of Yisra'el stayed himself up in his chariot against the Aram until the even; and about the time of the going down of the sun he died. NIV 34 All day long the battle raged, and the king of Israel propped himself up in his chariot facing the Arameans until evening. Then at sunset he died.
