You have killed your brothers, and they were better than you. NIV 13 But you have followed 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.

NCV 14 So now the Lord is about to punish your people, your children, wives, and everything you own. NIV 14 So now the LORD is about to strike your people, your sons, your wives and everything that is yours, with a heavy blow. NCV 15 You will have a terrible disease in your intestines that will become worse every day. Finally it will cause your intestines to come out."

NIV 18 After all this, the LORD afflicted Jehoram with an incurable disease of the bowels. NCV 19 After he was sick for two years, Jehoram's intestines came out because of the disease, and he died in terrible pain.
