2 Kings 3

JUB 1 Now Jehoram, the son of Ahab, began to reign over Israel in Samaria the eighteenth year of Jehoshaphat, king of Judah, and reigned twelve years. NIV 1 Joram son of Ahab became king of Israel in Samaria in the eighteenth year of Jehoshaphat king of Judah, and he reigned twelve years. JUB 2 And he did evil in the sight of the LORD, but not like his father and like his mother, for he put away the images of Baal that his father had made. NIV 2 He did evil in the eyes of the LORD, but not as his father and mother had done. He got rid of the sacred stone of Baal that his father had made. JUB 3 Nevertheless, he cleaved unto the sins of Jeroboam, the son of Nebat, who made Israel sin; he did not depart from them. NIV 3 Nevertheless he clung to the sins of Jeroboam son of Nebat, which he had caused Israel to commit; he did not turn away from them. JUB 4 And Mesha, king of Moab, was a pastor and rendered unto the king of Israel one hundred thousand lambs and one hundred thousand rams, with the wool. NIV 4 Now Mesha king of Moab raised sheep, and he had to pay the king of Israel a tribute of a hundred thousand lambs and the wool of a hundred thousand rams. JUB 5 But it came to pass, when Ahab was dead, that the king of Moab rebelled against the king of Israel. NIV 5 But after Ahab died, the king of Moab rebelled against the king of Israel. JUB 6 And King Jehoram went out of Samaria the same time and numbered all Israel. NIV 6 So at that time King Joram set out from Samaria and mobilized all Israel. JUB 7 And he went and sent to Jehoshaphat, the king of Judah, saying, The king of Moab has rebelled against me; wilt thou go with me against Moab to battle? And he said, I will go up; I <em>am</em> as thou <em>art</em>, my people as thy people <em>and</em> my horses as thy horses. NIV 7 He also sent this message to Jehoshaphat king of Judah: “The king of Moab has rebelled against me. Will you go with me to fight against Moab?” “I will go with you,” he replied. “I am as you are, my people as your people, my horses as your horses.” JUB 8 And he said, Which way shall we go up? And he answered, The way through the wilderness of Edom. NIV 8 “By what route shall we attack?” he asked. “Through the Desert of Edom,” he answered. JUB 9 So the king of Israel went and the king of Judah and the king of Edom, and as they walked round about seven days’ journey through the desert, there was no water for the host or for the beasts that followed them. NIV 9 So the king of Israel set out with the king of Judah and the king of Edom. After a roundabout march of seven days, the army had no more water for themselves or for the animals with them. JUB 10 Then the king of Israel said, Alas! The LORD has called these three kings together, to deliver them into the hand of Moab! NIV 10 “What!” exclaimed the king of Israel. “Has the LORD called us three kings together only to deliver us into the hands of Moab?” JUB 11 But Jehoshaphat said, <em>Is there</em> not a prophet of the LORD here, that we may enquire of the LORD by him? And one of the king of Israel’s slaves answered and said, Here <em>is</em> Elisha, the son of Shaphat, who poured water on the hands of Elijah. NIV 11 But Jehoshaphat asked, “Is there no prophet of the LORD here, through whom we may inquire of the LORD?” An officer of the king of Israel answered, “Elisha son of Shaphat is here. He used to pour water on the hands of Elijah. ” JUB 12 And Jehoshaphat said, The word of the LORD is with him. So the king of Israel and Jehoshaphat and the king of Edom went down to him. NIV 12 Jehoshaphat said, “The word of the LORD is with him.” So the king of Israel and Jehoshaphat and the king of Edom went down to him. JUB 13 Then Elisha said unto the king of Israel, What have I to do with thee? Go to the prophets of thy father and to the prophets of thy mother. And the king of Israel said unto him, No, for the LORD has called these three kings together, to deliver them into the hand of Moab. NIV 13 Elisha said to the king of Israel, “Why do you want to involve me? Go to the prophets of your father and the prophets of your mother.” “No,” the king of Israel answered, “because it was the LORD who called us three kings together to deliver us into the hands of Moab.” JUB 14 And Elisha said, <em>As</em> the LORD of the hosts lives, before whom I stand, surely, were it not that I regard the presence of Jehoshaphat, the king of Judah, I would not look toward thee nor see thee. NIV 14 Elisha said, “As surely as the LORD Almighty lives, whom I serve, if I did not have respect for the presence of Jehoshaphat king of Judah, I would not pay any attention to you. JUB 15 But now bring me a minstrel. And when the minstrel played, the hand of the LORD came upon him; NIV 15 But now bring me a harpist.” While the harpist was playing, the hand of the LORD came on Elisha JUB 16 and he said, Thus hath the LORD said, Make this valley full of ditches. NIV 16 and he said, “This is what the LORD says: I will fill this valley with pools of water. JUB 17 For thus hath the LORD said, Ye shall not see wind, neither shall ye see rain; yet this valley shall be filled with water, that ye may drink, both ye and your livestock and your beasts. NIV 17 For this is what the LORD says: You will see neither wind nor rain, yet this valley will be filled with water, and you, your cattle and your other animals will drink. JUB 18 And this is <em>but</em> a light thing in the sight of the LORD; he will also deliver the Moabites into your hands. NIV 18 This is an easy thing in the eyes of the LORD; he will also deliver Moab into your hands. JUB 19 And ye shall smite every fenced city and every choice city and shall fell every good tree and stop every fountain of water and mar every good piece of land with stones. NIV 19 You will overthrow every fortified city and every major town. You will cut down every good tree, stop up all the springs, and ruin every good field with stones.” JUB 20 And it came to pass in the morning, when the present was offered, that water came by the way of Edom, and the land was filled with water. NIV 20 The next morning, about the time for offering the sacrifice, there it was—water flowing from the direction of Edom! And the land was filled with water. JUB 21 And when all the Moabites heard that the kings were come up to fight against them, they gathered all that were able to gird on a girdle and upward and stood in the border. NIV 21 Now all the Moabites had heard that the kings had come to fight against them; so every man, young and old, who could bear arms was called up and stationed on the border. JUB 22 And when they rose up early in the morning, and the sun shone upon the water, and the Moabites saw the water before them <em>as</em> red as blood; NIV 22 When they got up early in the morning, the sun was shining on the water. To the Moabites across the way, the water looked red—like blood. JUB 23 and they said, This <em>is</em> blood; the kings are surely slain, and they have smitten one another. Now therefore, Moab, to the spoil. NIV 23 “That’s blood!” they said. “Those kings must have fought and slaughtered each other. Now to the plunder, Moab!” JUB 24 But when they came to the camp of Israel, the Israelites rose up and smote the Moabites so that they fled before them, but they went forward smiting the Moabites, even in <em>their</em> country. NIV 24 But when the Moabites came to the camp of Israel, the Israelites rose up and fought them until they fled. And the Israelites invaded the land and slaughtered the Moabites. JUB 25 And they beat down the cities, and on every good piece of land each man cast his stone and filled it, and they stopped all the fountains of water and felled all the good trees until they left their stones only in Kirharaseth, for the slingers went about <em>it</em> and smote it. NIV 25 They destroyed the towns, and each man threw a stone on every good field until it was covered. They stopped up all the springs and cut down every good tree. Only Kir Hareseth was left with its stones in place, but men armed with slings surrounded it and attacked it. JUB 26 And when the king of Moab saw that the battle was overcoming him, he took with him seven hundred men that drew swords to break through unto the king of Edom, but they could not. NIV 26 When the king of Moab saw that the battle had gone against him, he took with him seven hundred swordsmen to break through to the king of Edom, but they failed. JUB 27 Then he took his eldest son that should have reigned in his stead and offered him <em>for</em> a burnt offering upon the wall. And there was great indignation in Israel, and they departed from him and returned to <em>their own</em> land. NIV 27 Then he took his firstborn son, who was to succeed him as king, and offered him as a sacrifice on the city wall. The fury against Israel was great; they withdrew and returned to their own land.
