2 Kings 14

CEB 1 Amaziah, the son of Judah's King Jehoash, became king in the second year of Israel's King Joash, who was Jehoahaz's son. NIV 1 In the second year of Jehoash son of Jehoahaz king of Israel, Amaziah son of Joash king of Judah began to reign. CEB 2 Amaziah was 25 years old when he became king, and he ruled for twenty-nine years in Jerusalem. His mother's name was Jehoaddin; she was from Jerusalem. NIV 2 He was twenty-five years old when he became king, and he reigned in Jerusalem twenty-nine years. His mother’s name was Jehoaddan; she was from Jerusalem. CEB 3 He did what was right in the LORD's eyes, but not as well as his ancestor King David. He did everything his father Jehoash did. NIV 3 He did what was right in the eyes of the LORD, but not as his father David had done. In everything he followed the example of his father Joash. CEB 4 However, the shrines weren't removed. People kept sacrificing and burning incense at them. NIV 4 The high places, however, were not removed; the people continued to offer sacrifices and burn incense there. CEB 5 Once he had secured control over his kingdom, he executed the officials who had assassinated his father the king. NIV 5 After the kingdom was firmly in his grasp, he executed the officials who had murdered his father the king. CEB 6 However, he didn't kill the children of the murderers, because of what is written in the Instruction scroll from Moses, where the LORD commanded, Parents shouldn't be executed because of what their children have done; neither should children be executed because of what their parents have done. Each person should be executed for their own guilty acts. NIV 6 Yet he did not put the children of the assassins to death, in accordance with what is written in the Book of the Law of Moses where the LORD commanded: “Parents are not to be put to death for their children, nor children put to death for their parents; each will die for their own sin.” CEB 7 Next Amaziah struck down ten thousand Edomites in the Salt Valley and captured Sela in battle. He renamed it Jokthe-el, which is what it is still called today. NIV 7 He was the one who defeated ten thousand Edomites in the Valley of Salt and captured Sela in battle, calling it Joktheel, the name it has to this day. CEB 8 Then Amaziah sent messengers to Israel's King Joash son of Jehoahaz son of Israel's King Jehu, saying, "Come on! Let's go head-to-head." NIV 8 Then Amaziah sent messengers to Jehoash son of Jehoahaz, the son of Jehu, king of Israel, with the challenge: “Come, let us face each other in battle.” CEB 9 But Israel's King Joash responded to Judah's King Amaziah, "Once upon a time, a thistle in Lebanon sent a message to a cedar, ‘Give your daughter to my son as a wife.' But then a wild beast in Lebanon came along and trampled the thistle. NIV 9 But Jehoash king of Israel replied to Amaziah king of Judah: “A thistle in Lebanon sent a message to a cedar in Lebanon, ‘Give your daughter to my son in marriage.’ Then a wild beast in Lebanon came along and trampled the thistle underfoot. CEB 10 You have definitely defeated Edom and have now become conceited. Enjoy the honor, but stay home. Why invite disaster when both you and Judah will fall?" NIV 10 You have indeed defeated Edom and now you are arrogant. Glory in your victory, but stay at home! Why ask for trouble and cause your own downfall and that of Judah also?” CEB 11 But Amaziah wouldn't listen, so Israel's King Joash moved against him, and he and Judah's King Amaziah went head-to-head in battle at Beth-shemesh in Judah.
