Second Kings 15


15:1 In the twenty and seventh year of Jeroboam king of Israel
 began Azariah son of Amaziah king of Judah to reign.
15:2 Sixteen years old was he when he began to reign, and he
 reigned two and fifty years in Jerusalem. And his mother's name
 [was] Jecholiah of Jerusalem.
15:3 And he did [that which was] right in the sight of the LORD,
 according to all that his father Amaziah had done;
15:4 Save that the high places were not removed: the people
 sacrificed and burnt incense still on the high places.
15:5 And the LORD smote the king, so that he was a leper to the
 day of his death, and dwelt in a separate house. And Jotham the
 king's son [was] over the house, judging the people of the
 land.
15:6 And the rest of the acts of Azariah, and all that he did,
 [are] they not written in the book of the chronicles of the
 kings of Judah?
15:7 So Azariah slept with his fathers; and they buried him with
 his fathers in the city of David: and Jotham his son reigned in
 his stead.
15:8 In the thirty and eighth year of Azariah king of Judah did
 Zachariah the son of Jeroboam reign over Israel in Samaria six
 months.
15:9 And he did [that which was] evil in the sight of the LORD,
 as his fathers had done: he departed not from the sins of
 Jeroboam the son of Nebat, who made Israel to sin.
15:10 And Shallum the son of Jabesh conspired against him, and
 smote him before the people, and slew him, and reigned in his
 stead.
15:11 And the rest of the acts of Zachariah, behold they [are]
 written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Israel.
15:12 This [was] the word of the LORD which he spoke to Jehu,
 saying, Thy sons shall sit on the throne of Israel to the
 fourth [generation]. And so it came to pass.
15:13 Shallum the son of Jabesh began to reign in the nine and
 thirtieth year of Uzziah king of Judah; and he reigned a full
 month in Samaria.
15:14 For Menahem the son of Gadi went up from Tirzah, and came
 to Samaria, and smote Shallum the son of Jabesh in Samaria, and
 slew him, and reigned in his stead.
15:15 And the rest of the acts of Shallum, and his conspiracy
 which he made, behold, they [are] written in the book of the
 chronicles of the kings of Israel.
15:16 Then Menahem smote Tiphsah, and all that [were] in it, and
 the borders of it from Tirzah: because they opened not [to
 him], therefore he smote [it]; [and] all the women in it that
 were with child he ripped up.
15:17 In the nine and thirtieth year of Azariah king of Judah
 began Menahem the son of Gadi to reign over Israel, [and
 reigned] ten years in Samaria.
15:18 And he did [that which was] evil in the sight of the LORD:
 he departed not all his days from the sins of Jeroboam the son
 of Nebat, who made Israel to sin.
15:19 [And] Pul the king of Assyria came against the land: and
 Menahem gave Pul a thousand talents of silver, that his hand
 might be with him to confirm the kingdom in his hand.
15:20 And Menahem exacted the money of Israel, [even] of all the
 mighty men of wealth, of each man fifty shekels of silver, to
 give to the king of Assyria. So the king of Assyria turned
 back, and stayed not there in the land.
15:21 And the rest of the acts of Menahem, and all that he did,
 [are] they not written in the book of the chronicles of the
 kings of Israel?
15:22 And Menahem slept with his fathers; and Pekahiah his son
 reigned in his stead.
15:23 In the fiftieth year of Azariah king of Judah, Pekahiah
 the son of Menahem began to reign over Israel in Samaria, [and
 reigned] two years.
15:24 And he did [that which was] evil in the sight of the LORD:
 he departed not from the sins of Jeroboam the son of Nebat, who
 made Israel to sin.
15:25 But Pekah the son of Remaliah, a captain of his, conspired
 against him, and smote him in Samaria, in the palace of the
 king's house, with Argob and Arieh, and with him fifty men of
 the Gileadites: and he killed him, and reigned in his room.
15:26 And the rest of the acts of Pekahiah, and all that he did,
 behold, they [are] written in the book of the chronicles of the
 kings of Israel.
15:27 In the two and fiftieth year of Azariah king of Judah,
 Pekah the son of Remaliah began to reign over Israel in
 Samaria, [and reigned] twenty years.
15:28 And he did [that which was] evil in the sight of the LORD:
 he departed not from the sins of Jeroboam the son of Nebat, who
 made Israel to sin.
15:29 In the days of Pekah king of Israel came Tiglath-pileser
 king of Assyria, and took Ijon, and Abel-beth-maachah, and
 Janoah, and Kedesh, and Hazor, and Gilead, and Galilee, all the
 land of Naphtali, and carried them captive to Assyria.
15:30 And Hoshea the son of Elah made a conspiracy against Pekah
 the son of Remaliah, and smote him, and slew him, and reigned
 in his stead, in the twentieth year of Jotham the son of
 Uzziah.
15:31 And the rest of the acts of Pekah, and all that he did,
 behold, they [are] written in the book of the chronicles of the
 kings of Israel.
15:32 In the second year of Pekah the son of Remaliah king of
 Israel, began Jotham the son of Uzziah king of Judah to reign.
15:33 Five and twenty years old was he when he began to reign,
 and he reigned sixteen years in Jerusalem. And his mother's
 name [was] Jerusha, the daughter of Zadok.
15:34 And he did [that which was] right in the sight of the
 LORD: he did according to all that his father Uzziah had done.
15:35 Yet, the high places were not removed: the people
 sacrificed and burned incense still in the high places. He
 built the higher gate of the house of the LORD.
15:36 Now the rest of the acts of Jotham, and all that he did,
 [are] they not written in the book of the chronicles of the
 kings of Judah?
15:37 In those days the LORD began to send against Judah, Rezin
 the king of Syria, and Pekah the son of Remaliah.
15:38 And Jotham slept with his fathers, and was buried with his
 fathers in the city of David his father: And Ahaz his son
 reigned in his stead.
