Now therefore come, and let us fall unto the host of the Syrians: if they save us alive, we shall live; and if they kill us, we shall but die. 2 Kings 7:5 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} And they rose up in the twilight, to go unto the camp of the Syrians: and when they were come to the uttermost part of the camp of Syria, behold, [there was] no man there. 2 Kings 7:6 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} For the Lord had made the host of the Syrians to hear a noise of chariots, and a noise of horses, [even] the noise of a great host: and they said one to another, Lo, the king of Israel hath hired against us the kings of the Hittites, and the kings of the Egyptians, to come upon us. 2 Kings 7:7 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} Wherefore they arose and fled in the twilight, and left their tents, and their horses, and their asses, even the camp as it [was], and fled for their life. 2 Kings 7:8 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} And when these lepers came to the uttermost part of the camp, they went into one tent, and did eat and drink, and carried thence silver, and gold, and raiment, and went and hid [it]; and came again, and entered into another tent, and carried thence [also], and went and hid [it]. 2 Kings 7:9 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} Then they said one to another, We do not well: this day [is] a day of good tidings, and we hold our peace: if we tarry till the morning light, some mischief will come upon us: now therefore come, that we may go and tell the king's household. 2 Kings 7:10 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} So they came and called unto the porter of the city: and they told them, saying, We came to the camp of the Syrians, and, behold, [there was] no man there, neither voice of man, but horses tied, and asses tied, and the tents as they [were]. 2 Kings 7:11 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} And he called the porters; and they told [it] to the king's house within.

The king, finding by spies the news to be true, spoileth the tents of the Syrians.

2 Kings 7:12 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} And the king arose in the night, and said unto his servants, I will now show you what the Syrians have done to us. They know that we [be] hungry; therefore are they gone out of the camp to hide themselves in the field, saying, When they come out of the city, we shall catch them alive, and get into the city. 2 Kings 7:13 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} And one of his servants answered and said, Let [some] take, I pray thee, five of the horses that remain, which are left in the city, (behold, they [are] as all the multitude of Israel that are left in it: behold, [I say], they [are] even as all the multitude of the Israelites that are consumed:) and let us send and see. 2 Kings 7:14 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} They took therefore two chariot horses; and the king sent after the host of the Syrians, saying, Go and see. 2 Kings 7:15 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} And they went after them unto Jordan: and, lo, all the way [was] full of garments and vessels, which the Syrians had cast away in their haste. And the messengers returned, and told the king. 2 Kings 7:16 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} And the people went out, and spoiled the tents of the Syrians. So a measure of fine flour was [sold] for a shekel, and two measures of barley for a shekel, according to the word of the LORD.

And he said, Behold, thou shalt see it with thine eyes, but shalt not eat thereof. 2 Kings 7:20 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} And so it fell out unto him: for the people trod upon him in the gate, and he died.
