2 Kings 14

GNT 1 In the second year of the reign of Jehoash son of Jehoahaz as king of Israel, Amaziah son of Joash became king of Judah NIV 1 In the second year of Jehoash son of Jehoahaz king of Israel, Amaziah son of Joash king of Judah began to reign. GNT 2 at the age of twenty-five, and he ruled in Jerusalem for twenty-nine years. His mother was Jehoaddin 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. GNT 3 He did what was pleasing to the Lord, but he was not like his ancestor King David; instead, he did what his father Joash had done. 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. GNT 4 He did not tear down the pagan places of worship, and the people continued to offer sacrifices and burn incense there. NIV 4 The high places, however, were not removed; the people continued to offer sacrifices and burn incense there. GNT 5 As soon as Amaziah was firmly in power, he executed the officials who had killed 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. GNT 6 However, he did not kill their children but followed what the Lord had commanded in the Law of Moses: "Parents are not to be put to death for crimes committed by their children, and children are not to be put to death for crimes committed by their parents; people are to be put to death only for a crime they themselves have committed." 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.” GNT 7 Amaziah killed ten thousand Edomite soldiers in Salt Valley; he captured the city of Sela in battle and called it Joktheel, the name it still has. 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. GNT 8 Then Amaziah sent messengers to King Jehoash of Israel, challenging him to fight. 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.” GNT 9 But King Jehoash sent back the following reply: "Once a thorn bush on the Lebanon Mountains sent a message to a cedar: "Give your daughter in marriage to my son.' A wild animal passed by and trampled the bush down. 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. GNT 10 Now Amaziah, you have defeated the Edomites, and you are filled with pride. Be satisfied with your fame and stay at home. Why stir up trouble that will only bring disaster on you and your people?" 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?” GNT 11 But Amaziah refused to listen, so King Jehoash marched out with his men and fought against him at Beth Shemesh in Judah. NIV 11 Amaziah, however, would not listen, so Jehoash king of Israel attacked. He and Amaziah king of Judah faced each other at Beth Shemesh in Judah. GNT 12 Amaziah's army was defeated, and all his soldiers fled to their homes. NIV 12 Judah was routed by Israel, and every man fled to his home. GNT 13 Jehoash took Amaziah prisoner, advanced on Jerusalem, and tore down the city wall from Ephraim Gate to the Corner Gate, a distance of two hundred yards.

GNT 14 He took all the silver and gold he could find, all the Temple equipment and all the palace treasures, and carried them back to Samaria. He also took hostages with him. NIV 14 He took all the gold and silver and all the articles found in the temple of the LORD and in the treasuries of the royal palace. He also took hostages and returned to Samaria. GNT 15 Everything else that Jehoash did, including his bravery in the war against King Amaziah of Judah, is recorded in [The History of the Kings of Israel.] NIV 15 As for the other events of the reign of Jehoash, what he did and his achievements, including his war against Amaziah king of Judah, are they not written in the book of the annals of the kings of Israel? GNT 16 Jehoash died and was buried in the royal tombs in Samaria, and his son Jeroboam II succeeded him as king.

GNT 18 Everything else that Amaziah did is recorded in [The History of the Kings of Judah.] NIV 18 As for the other events of Amaziah’s reign, are they not written in the book of the annals of the kings of Judah? GNT 19 There was a plot in Jerusalem to assassinate Amaziah, so he fled to the city of Lachish, but his enemies followed him there and killed him. NIV 19 They conspired against him in Jerusalem, and he fled to Lachish, but they sent men after him to Lachish and killed him there. GNT 20 His body was carried back to Jerusalem on a horse and was buried in the royal tombs in David's City. NIV 20 He was brought back by horse and was buried in Jerusalem with his ancestors, in the City of David. GNT 21 The people of Judah then crowned his sixteen-year-old son Uzziah as king. NIV 21 Then all the people of Judah took Azariah, who was sixteen years old, and made him king in place of his father Amaziah. GNT 22 Uzziah reconquered and rebuilt Elath after his father's death. NIV 22 He was the one who rebuilt Elath and restored it to Judah after Amaziah rested with his ancestors. GNT 23 In the fifteenth year of the reign of Amaziah son of Joash as king of Judah, Jeroboam son of Jehoash became king of Israel, and he ruled in Samaria for forty-one years. NIV 23 In the fifteenth year of Amaziah son of Joash king of Judah, Jeroboam son of Jehoash king of Israel became king in Samaria, and he reigned forty-one years. GNT 24 He sinned against the Lord, following the wicked example of his predecessor King Jeroboam son of Nebat, who led Israel into sin. NIV 24 He did evil in the eyes of the LORD and did not turn away from any of the sins of Jeroboam son of Nebat, which he had caused Israel to commit. GNT 25 He reconquered all the territory that had belonged to Israel, from Hamath Pass in the north to the Dead Sea in the south. This was what the Lord, the God of Israel, had promised through his servant the prophet Jonah son of Amittai from Gath Hepher. NIV 25 He was the one who restored the boundaries of Israel from Lebo Hamath to the Dead Sea, in accordance with the word of the LORD, the God of Israel, spoken through his servant Jonah son of Amittai, the prophet from Gath Hepher. GNT 26 The Lord saw the terrible suffering of the Israelites; there was no one at all to help them. NIV 26 The LORD had seen how bitterly everyone in Israel, whether slave or free, was suffering; there was no one to help them. GNT 27 But it was not the Lord's purpose to destroy Israel completely and forever, so he rescued them through King Jeroboam II. NIV 27 And since the LORD had not said he would blot out the name of Israel from under heaven, he saved them by the hand of Jeroboam son of Jehoash. GNT 28 Everything else that Jeroboam II did, his brave battles, and how he restored Damascus and Hamath to Israel, are all recorded in [The History of the Kings of Israel.] NIV 28 As for the other events of Jeroboam’s reign, all he did, and his military achievements, including how he recovered for Israel both Damascus and Hamath, which had belonged to Judah, are they not written in the book of the annals of the kings of Israel? GNT 29 Jeroboam died and was buried in the royal tombs, and his son Zechariah succeeded him as king. NIV 29 Jeroboam rested with his ancestors, the kings of Israel. And Zechariah his son succeeded him as king.
