2 Kings 13
Jehoahaz his wicked reign.
2 Kings 13:1 In the .xxiij. yeare of Ioas the sonne of Ahaziahu kynge of Iuda, Iehoahaz the sonne of Iehu beganne to raygne ouer Israel in Samaria seuentene yeare. 2 Kings 13:2 And he wrought that whych was euell in the syght of the Lorde, and folowed the synnes of Ieroboam the sonne of Nebat whych made Israel to synne, and departed not ther from.
Jehoahaz, oppressed by Hazael, is relieved by prayer.
2 Kings 13:3 And the Lorde was angry wyth Israel, and delyuered them into the hand of Hazael kynge of Siria, and into the hande of Benhadad the sonne of Hazael all theyr dayes. 2 Kings 13:4 And Iehoahaz besought the Lorde, & the Lorde heard him. For he considred the trouble of Israel, wher with the king of Siria troubled them. 2 Kings 13:5 And the Lorde gaue Israel a delyuerer, so that they went out from vnder the subieccyon of the Sirians. And the chyldren of Israel dwelt in theyr tentes as before tyme. 2 Kings 13:6 Neuerthelesse they departed not from the synnes of the house of Ieroboam, whych made Israel synne, but walked in them. And there remayned an Idols groue styll also in Samaria. 2 Kings 13:7 Neither dyd he leaue of the people to Iehoahaz, but fyftye horsemen ten charettes, & ten thousande fotemen for the kynge of Siria destroyed them, and made them lyke thresshed dust.
Joash succeedeth him.
2 Kings 13:8 The rest of the wordes that concerne Iehoahaz, and all that he dyd, and hys power, are they not wrytten in the boke of the Chronycles of the kynges of Israel? 2 Kings 13:9 And Iehoahaz slepte wyth hys fathers, and they buryed hym in Samaria, and Ioas his sonne raygned in hys steade.
His wicked reign.
2 Kings 13:10 In the .xxxvij. yeare of Ioas kynge of Iuda, beganne Iehoas the sonne of Iehoahaz to raygne ouer Israel in Samaria syxtene yeare, 2 Kings 13:11 and dyd that whych is euell in the syght of the Lord, and departed not from all the synnes of Ieroboam the sonne of Nebat, (that made Israel synne) for he walked therin.
Jeroboam succeedeth him.
2 Kings 13:12 The remnaunt of the wordes that concerne Ioas & all þt he dyd, & hys power wher wyth he fought agaynst Amaziahu kyng of Iuda are they not wrytten in the chronycle boke of the kynges of Israel? 2 Kings 13:13 And Ioas slepte with his fathers, and Ieroboam sat vpon his seate. And Ioas was buried in Samaria amonge the kynges of Israel.
Elisha dying prophesieth to Joash three victories over the Syrians.
2 Kings 13:14 When Elisa was fallen sycke of hys sycknesse (wher of he dyed) Ioas the kinge of Israel came downe vnto hym, & wepte before him, & sayd: O my father, my father, the charet of Israel, & the horsemen of the same. 2 Kings 13:15 Elisa sayde vnto hym: take bowe & arowes. 2 Kings 13:16 And he toke vnto him bowe & arowes. And he sayde to the kyng of Israel: put thine hand vpon the bowe, & he put his hande vpon it. And Elisa put his handes vpon the kinges handes, 2 Kings 13:17 & sayde: open a windowe eastward: & whan he had opened it, Elisa sayde: shote, & he shotte. And he sayd: the arowe of helth of the Lord: and the arowe of helth agaynst Siria, for þu shalt smyte Siria in Aphek, tyll thou haue made an ende of them. 2 Kings 13:18 And he sayd: take þe arowes: & he toke them: And he sayd vnto the kyng of Israel: smyte the grounde: & he smote thrise and ceased. 2 Kings 13:19 And the man of God was angrie wt him, & sayd: þu shuldest haue smyten fyue or syxe tymes & then thou haddest smytten Siria tyll thou haddest made an ende of them: where nowe þu shalt smyte Siria but thrise.
The Moabites invading the land, Elisha's bones raise up a dead man.
2 Kings 13:20 And so Elisa dyed and they buryed hym, & þe soudiares of the Moabites came into þe land, the same yeare. 2 Kings 13:21 And it chaunced as some of them were burienge a man, and spyed the soudyars, they cast the man into the sepulchre of Elisa. And whan the man was rolled downe, and touched the body of Elisa he reuyued, and stode vpon hys fete.
Hazael dying, Joash getteth three victories over Ben-hadad.
2 Kings 13:22 But Hazael vexed Israel, all the dayes of Iehoahaz. 2 Kings 13:23 And þe Lord had mercye on them & pitied them, & had respecte vnto them, because of his appointment made wt Abraham, Isahac & Iacob, and wolde not destroye them, nether cast he them from hym as yet. 2 Kings 13:24 So Hazael the kynge of Siria dyed and Benhadad his sonne raygned in his steade. 2 Kings 13:25 And Iehoas þe sonne of Iehoahaz went agayne, and toke out of the hande of Benhadad þe sonne of Hazael, the cyties which he had taken awaye out of the hande of Iehoahaz hys father, in warre: for thre tymes dyd Ioas beate him, and restored the cyties vnto Israel agayne.
