So when the captains of the chariots saw Josaphat, they suspected that he was the king of Israel, and making a violent assault, they fought against him: and Josaphat cried out.
And the captains of the chariots perceived that he was not the king of Israel, and they turned away from him.
And a certain man bent his bow, shooting at a venture, and chanced to strike the king of Israel, between the lungs and the stomach. But he said to the driver of his chariot: Turn thy hand, and carry me out of the army, for I am grievously wounded.
And the battle was fought that day, and the king of Israel stood in his chariot against the Syrians, and he died in the evening: and the blood ran out of the wound into the midst of the chariot.
And the herald proclaimed through all the army, before the sun set, saying: Let every man return to his own city, and to his own country.
And the king died, and was carried into Samaria: and they buried the king in Samaria.
And they washed his chariot in the pool of Samaria and the dogs licked up his blood, and they washed the reins according to the word of the Lord which he had spoken.
But the rest of the acts of Achab, and all that he did, and the house of ivory that he made, and all the cities that he built, are they not written in the book of the words of the days of the kings of Israel?
So Achab slept with his fathers; and Ochozias, his son, reigned in his stead.
But Josaphat, the son of Asa, began to reign over Juda, in the fourth year of Acbab, king of Israel.
He was five and thirty years old when he began to reign, and he reigned five and twenty years in Jerusalem: the name of his mother was Azuba, the daughter of Salai.
