Second Kings 14


14:1 In the second year of Joash son of Jehoahaz king of Israel,
 reigned Amaziah the son of Joash king of Judah.
14:2 He was twenty and five years old when he began to reign,
 and [he] reigned twenty and nine years in Jerusalem. And his
 mother's name [was] Jehoaddan of Jerusalem.
14:3 And he did [that which was] right in the sight of the LORD,
 yet not like David his father: he did according to all things
 as Joash his father did.
14:4 But, the high places were not taken away: as yet the people
 sacrificed, and burnt incense on the high places.
14:5 And it came to pass, as soon as the kingdom was confirmed
 in his hand, that he slew his servants who had slain the king
 his father.
14:6 But the children of the murderers he slew not: according to
 that which is written in the book of the law of Moses, in which
 the LORD commanded, saying, The fathers shall not be put to
 death for the children, nor the children be put to death for
 the fathers; but every man shall be put to death for his own
 sin.
14:7 He slew of Edom in the valley of Salt ten thousand, and
 took Selah by war, and called the name of it Joktheel to this
 day.
14:8 Then Amaziah sent messengers to Jehoash the son of Jehoahaz
 son of Jehu king of Israel, saying, Come, let us look one
 another in the face.
14:9 And Jehoash the king of Israel sent to Amaziah king of
 Judah, saying, The thistle that [was] in Lebanon sent to the
 cedar that [was] in Lebanon, saying, Give thy daughter to my
 son for a wife: and there passed by a wild beast that [was] in
 Lebanon, and trod down the thistle.
14:10 Thou hast indeed smitten Edom, and thy heart hath lifted
 thee up: glory [of this], and tarry at home: for why shouldst
 thou meddle to [thy] hurt, that thou shouldst fall, [even]
 thou, and Judah with thee?
14:11 But Amaziah would not hear. Therefore Jehoash king of
 Israel went up: and he and Amaziah king of Judah looked one
 another in the face at Beth-shemesh, which [belongeth] to
 Judah.
14:12 And Judah was defeated before Israel; and they fled every
 man to their tents.
14:13 And Jehoash king of Israel took Amaziah king of Judah, the
 son of Jehoash the son of Ahaziah, at Beth-shemesh, and came to
 Jerusalem, and broke down the wall of Jerusalem from the gate
 of Ephraim to the corner gate, four hundred cubits.
14:14 And he took all the gold and silver, and all the vessels
 found in the house of the LORD, and in the treasures of the
 king's house, and hostages, and returned to Samaria.
14:15 Now the rest of the acts of Jehoash which he did, and his
 might, and how he fought with Amaziah king of Judah, [are] they
 not written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of
 Israel?
14:16 And Jehoash slept with his fathers, and was buried in
 Samaria with the kings of Israel; and Jeroboam his son reigned
 in his stead.
14:17 And Amaziah the son of Joash king of Judah lived after the
 death of Jehoash son of Jehoahaz king of Israel fifteen years.
14:18 And the rest of the acts of Amaziah, [are] they not
 written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Judah?
14:19 Now they made a conspiracy against him in Jerusalem: and
 he fled to Lachish; but they sent after him to Lachish, and
 slew him there.
14:20 And they brought him on horses: and he was buried at
 Jerusalem with his fathers in the city of David.
14:21 And all the people of Judah took Azariah, who [was]
 sixteen years old, and made him king instead of his father
 Amaziah.
14:22 He built Elath, and restored it to Judah, after that the
 king slept with his fathers.
14:23 In the fifteenth year of Amaziah the son of Joash king of
 Judah, Jeroboam the son of Joash king of Israel, began to reign
 in Samaria, [and reigned] forty and one years.
14:24 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 to sin.
14:25 He restored the border of Israel from the entering of
 Hamath to the sea of the plain, according to the word of the
 LORD God of Israel, which he spoke by the hand of his servant
 Jonah, the son of Amittai, the prophet, who [was] of
 Gath-hepher.
14:26 For the LORD saw the affliction of Israel, [that it was]
 very bitter: for [there was] not any shut up, nor any left, nor
 any helper for Israel.
14:27 And the LORD said not that he would blot out the name of
 Israel from under heaven: but he saved them by the hand of
 Jeroboam the son of Joash.
14:28 Now the rest of the acts of Jeroboam, and all that he did,
 and his might, how he warred, and how he recovered Damascus,
 and Hamath, [which belonged] to Judah, for Israel, [are] they
 not written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of
 Israel?
14:29 And Jeroboam slept with his fathers, [even] with the kings
 of Israel; and Zachariah his son reigned in his stead.
