Second Kings 13


13:1 In the three and twentieth year of Joash the son of Ahaziah
 king of Judah, Jehoahaz the son of Jehu began to reign over
 Israel in Samaria, [and reigned] seventeen years.
13:2 And he did [that which was] evil in the sight of the LORD,
 and followed the sins of Jeroboam the son of Nebat, who made
 Israel to sin; he departed not therefrom.
13:3 And the anger of the LORD was kindled against Israel, and
 he delivered them into the hand of Hazael king of Syria, and
 into the hand of Ben-hadad the son of Hazael, all [their] days.
13:4 And Jehoahaz besought the LORD, and the LORD hearkened to
 him: for he saw the oppression of Israel, because the king of
 Syria oppressed them.
13:5 (And the LORD gave Israel a savior, so that they went out
 from under the hand of the Syrians: and the children of Israel
 dwelt in their tents, as formerly.
13:6 Nevertheless they departed not from the sins of the house
 of Jeroboam, who made Israel sin, [but] walked in them: and
 there remained the grove also in Samaria.)
13:7 Neither did he leave of the people to Jehoahaz but fifty
 horsemen, and ten chariots, and ten thousand footmen; for the
 king of Syria had destroyed them, and had made them like the
 dust by threshing.
13:8 Now the rest of the acts of Jehoahaz, and all that he did,
 and his might, [are] they not written in the book of the
 chronicles of the kings of Israel?
13:9 And Jehoahaz slept with his fathers; and they buried him in
 Samaria: and Joash his son reigned in his stead.
13:10 In the thirty and seventh year of Joash king of Judah
 began Jehoash the son of Jehoahaz to reign over Israel in
 Samaria, [and he reigned] sixteen years.
13:11 And he did [that which was] evil in the sight of the LORD:
 he departed not from all the sins of Jeroboam the son of Nebat,
 who made Israel sin: [but] he walked in them.
13:12 And the rest of the acts of Joash, and all that he did,
 and his might with which he fought against Amaziah king of
 Judah, [are] they not written in the book of the chronicles of
 the kings of Israel?
13:13 And Joash slept with his fathers; and Jeroboam sat upon
 his throne: and Joash was buried in Samaria with the kings of
 Israel.
13:14 Now Elisha had fallen sick of his disease of which he
 died. And Joash the king of Israel came down to him, and wept
 over his face, and said, O my father, my father, the chariot of
 Israel, and the horsemen thereof.
13:15 And Elisha said to him, Take bow and arrows. And he took
 to him bow and arrows.
13:16 And he said to the king of Israel, Put thy hand upon the
 bow. And he put his hand [upon it]: and Elisha put his hands
 upon the king's hands.
13:17 And he said, Open the window eastward. And he opened [it].
 Then Elisha said, Shoot. And he shot. And he said, The arrow of
 the LORD'S deliverance, and the arrow of deliverance from
 Syria: for thou shalt smite the Syrians in Aphek, till thou
 hast consumed [them].
13:18 And he said, Take the arrows. And he took [them]. And he
 said to the king of Israel, Smite upon the ground. And he smote
 thrice, and ceased.
13:19 And the man of God was wroth with him, and said, Thou
 shouldst have smitten five or six times; then hadst thou
 smitten Syria till thou hadst consumed [it]: whereas now thou
 shalt smite Syria [but] thrice.
13:20 And Elisha died, and they buried him. And the bands of the
 Moabites invaded the land at the coming in of the year.
13:21 And it came to pass, as they were burying a man, that
 behold, they spied a band [of men]; and they cast the man into
 the sepulcher of Elisha: and when the man was let down, and
 touched the bones of Elisha, he revived, and stood on his feet.
13:22 But Hazael king of Syria oppressed Israel all the days of
 Jehoahaz.
13:23 And the LORD was gracious to them, and had compassion on
 them, and had respect to them, because of his covenant with
 Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, and would not destroy them, neither
 did he as yet reject them from his presence.
13:24 So Hazael king of Syria died; and Ben-hadad his son
 reigned in his stead.
13:25 And Jehoash the son of Jehoahaz took again from the hand
 of Ben-hadad the son of Hazael the cities, which he had taken
 from the hand of Jehoahaz his father by war. Three times Joash
 defeated him, and recovered the cities of Israel.
