1 H558 Amaziah H6242 was twenty - H2568 five H8141 years H1121 old H4427 when he began to reign; H4427 and he reigned H6242 twenty - H8672 nine H8141 years H3389 in Jerusalem: H517 and his mother's H8034 name H3086 was Jehoaddan, H3389 of Jerusalem.
2 H6213 He did H3477 that which was right H5869 in the eyes H3068 of Yahweh, H8003 but not with a perfect H3824 heart.
3 H4467 Now it happened, when the kingdom H2388 was established H2026 to him, that he killed H5650 his servants H2026 who had killed H4428 the king H1 his father.
4 H1121 But he didn't put their children H4191 to death, H3789 but did according to that which is written H8451 in the law H5612 in the book H4872 of Moses, H3068 as Yahweh H6680 commanded, H559 saying, H1 "The fathers H4191 shall not die H1121 for the children, H1121 neither shall the children H4191 die H1 for the fathers; H376 but every man H4191 shall die H2399 for his own sin."
5 H558 Moreover Amaziah H6908 gathered H3063 Judah H6908 together, H5975 and ordered H1 them according to their fathers' H1004 houses, H8269 under captains H505 of thousands H8269 and captains H3967 of hundreds, H3063 even all Judah H1144 and Benjamin: H6485 and he numbered H6242 them from twenty H8141 years H1121 old H4605 and upward, H4672 and found H7969 them three H3967 hundred H505 thousand H977 chosen H3318 men, able to go forth H6635 to war, H270 who could handle H7420 spear H6793 and shield.
6 H7936 He hired H3967 also one hundred H505 thousand H1368 mighty H2428 men of valor H3478 out of Israel H3967 for one hundred H3603 talents H3701 of silver.
7 H376 A man H430 of God H935 came H559 to him, saying, H4428 "O king, H6635 don't let the army H3478 of Israel H935 go H3068 with you; for Yahweh H3478 is not with Israel, H1121 with all the children H669 of Ephraim.
8 H935 But if you will go, H6213 take H2388 action, be strong H4421 for the battle. H430 God H3782 will overthrow H6440 you before H341 the enemy; H430 for God H3426 has H3581 power H5826 to help, H3782 and to overthrow."
9 H558 Amaziah H559 said H376 to the man H430 of God, H6213 "But what shall we do H3967 for the hundred H3603 talents H5414 which I have given H1416 to the army H3478 of Israel?" H376 The man H430 of God H559 answered, H3068 "Yahweh H3426 is H5414 able to give H7235 you much more than this."
10 H558 Then Amaziah H914 separated H1416 them, the army H935 that had come H669 to him out of Ephraim, H935 to go H4725 home H3212 again: H639 therefore their anger H3966 was greatly H2734 kindled H3063 against Judah, H7725 and they returned H4725 home H2750 in fierce H639 anger.
11 H558 Amaziah H2388 took courage, H5090 and led forth H5971 his people, H3212 and went H1516 to the Valley H4417 of Salt, H5221 and struck H6235 ten H505 thousand H1121 of the children H8165 of Seir.
12 H1121 The children H3063 of Judah H7617 carry H6235 away ten H505 thousand H2416 alive, H935 and brought H7218 them to the top H5553 of the rock, H7993 and threw them down H7218 from the top H5553 of the rock, H1234 so that they all were broken in pieces.
13 H1121 But the men H1416 of the army H558 whom Amaziah H7725 sent back, H3212 that they should not go H4421 with him to battle, H6584 fell H5892 on the cities H3063 of Judah, H8111 from Samaria H1032 even to Beth Horon, H5221 and struck H7969 of them three H505 thousand, H962 and took H7227 much H961 spoil.
14 H310 Now it happened, after H558 that Amaziah H935 had come H5221 from the slaughter H130 of the Edomites, H935 that he brought H430 the gods H1121 of the children H8165 of Seir, H5975 and set them up H430 to be his gods, H7812 and bowed down H6440 himself before H6999 them, and burned incense to them.
15 H639 Therefore the anger H3068 of Yahweh H2734 was kindled H558 against Amaziah, H7971 and he sent H5030 to him a prophet, H559 who said H1875 to him, "Why have you sought H430 after the gods H5971 of the people, H5337 which have not delivered H5971 their own people H3027 out of your hand?"
16 H1696 It happened, as he talked H559 with him, that the king said H5414 to him, "Have we made H4428 you one of the king's H3289 counselors? H2308 Stop! H5221 Why should you be struck H5030 down?" Then the prophet H2308 stopped, H559 and said, H3045 "I know H430 that God H3289 has determined H7843 to destroy H6213 you, because you have done H8085 this, and have not listened H6098 to my counsel."
17 H558 Then Amaziah H4428 king H3063 of Judah H3289 consulted H7971 his advisers, and sent H3101 to Joash, H1121 the son H3059 of Jehoahaz H1121 the son H3058 of Jehu, H4428 king H3478 of Israel, H559 saying, H3212 "Come, H7200 let us look one another H6440 in the face."
18 H3101 Joash H4428 king H3478 of Israel H7971 sent H558 to Amaziah H4428 king H3063 of Judah, H559 saying, H2336 "The thistle H3844 that was in Lebanon H7971 sent H730 to the cedar H3844 that was in Lebanon, H559 saying, H5414 ‘Give H1323 your daughter H1121 to my son H802 as his wife; H7704 then a wild H2416 animal H3844 that was in Lebanon H5674 passed by, H7429 and trampled down H2336 the thistle.
19 H559 You say H5221 to yourself that you have struck H123 Edom; H3820 and your heart H5375 lifts you up H3513 to boast. H3427 Now stay H1004 at home. H1624 Why should you meddle H7451 with trouble, H5307 that you should fall, H3063 even you, and Judah with you?'"
20 H558 But Amaziah H8085 would not listen; H430 for it was of God, H5414 that he might deliver H3027 them into the hand H1875 of their enemies, because they had sought H430 after the gods H123 of Edom.
21 H3101 So Joash H4428 king H3478 of Israel H5927 went up; H558 and he and Amaziah H4428 king H3063 of Judah H7200 looked one another H6440 in the face H1053 at Beth Shemesh, H3063 which belongs to Judah.
22 H3063 Judah H5062 was defeated H6440 by H3478 Israel; H5127 and they fled H376 every man H168 to his tent.
23 H3101 Joash H4428 king H3478 of Israel H8610 took H558 Amaziah H4428 king H3063 of Judah, H1121 the son H3101 of Joash H1121 the son H3059 of Jehoahaz, H1053 at Beth Shemesh, H935 and brought H3389 him to Jerusalem, H6555 and broke down H2346 the wall H3389 of Jerusalem H8179 from the gate H669 of Ephraim H6437 to the corner H8179 gate, H702 four H3967 hundred H520 cubits.
24 H2091 He took all the gold H3701 and silver, H3627 and all the vessels H4672 that were found H1004 in the house H430 of God H5654 with Obed-Edom, H214 and the treasures H4428 of the king's H1004 house, H1121 the hostages H7725 also, and returned H8111 to Samaria.
25 H558 Amaziah H1121 the son H3101 of Joash H4428 king H3063 of Judah H2421 lived H310 after H4194 the death H3101 of Joash H1121 son H3059 of Jehoahaz H4428 king H3478 of Israel H2568 fifteen H8141 years.
26 H3499 Now the rest H1697 of the acts H558 of Amaziah, H7223 first H314 and last, H3789 behold, aren't they written H5612 in the book H4428 of the kings H3063 of Judah H3478 and Israel?
27 H6256 Now from the time H558 that Amaziah H5493 turned away H310 from following H3068 Yahweh, H7194 they made H7195 a conspiracy H3389 against him in Jerusalem. H5127 He fled H3923 to Lachish; H7971 but they sent H310 after H3923 him to Lachish, H4191 and killed him there.
