2 Chronicles 11

1
When Rehobo'am came to Jerusalem, he assembled the house of Judah, and Benjamin, a hundred and eighty thousand chosen warriors, to fight against Israel, to restore the kingdom to Rehobo'am.
2
But the word of the LORD came to Shemai'ah the man of God:
3
"Say to Rehobo'am the son of Solomon king of Judah, and to all Israel in Judah and Benjamin,
4
'Thus says the LORD, You shall not go up or fight against your brethren. Return every man to his home, for this thing is from me.'" So they hearkened to the word of the LORD, and returned and did not go against Jerobo'am.
5
Rehobo'am dwelt in Jerusalem, and he built cities for defense in Judah.
6
He built Bethlehem, Etam, Teko'a,
7
Beth-zur, Soco, Adullam,
8
Gath, Mare'shah, Ziph,
9
Adora'im, Lachish, Aze'kah,
10
Zorah, Ai'jalon, and Hebron, fortified cities which are in Judah and in Benjamin.
11
He made the fortresses strong, and put commanders in them, and stores of food, oil, and wine.
12
And he put shields and spears in all the cities, and made them very strong. So he held Judah and Benjamin.
13
And the priests and the Levites that were in all Israel resorted to him from all places where they lived.
14
For the Levites left their common lands and their holdings and came to Judah and Jerusalem, because Jerobo'am and his sons cast them out from serving as priests of the LORD,
15
and he appointed his own priests for the high places, and for the satyrs, and for the calves which he had made.
16
And those who had set their hearts to seek the LORD God of Israel came after them from all the tribes of Israel to Jerusalem to sacrifice to the LORD, the God of their fathers.
17
They strengthened the kingdom of Judah, and for three years they made Rehobo'am the son of Solomon secure, for they walked for three years in the way of David and Solomon.
18
Rehobo'am took as wife Ma'halath the daughter of Jer'imoth the son of David, and of Ab'ihail the daughter of Eli'ab the son of Jesse;
19
and she bore him sons, Je'ush, Shemari'ah, and Zaham.
20
After her he took Ma'acah the daughter of Ab'salom, who bore him Abi'jah, Attai, Ziza, and Shelo'mith.
21
Rehobo'am loved Ma'acah the daughter of Ab'salom above all his wives and concubines (he took eighteen wives and sixty concubines, and had twenty-eight sons and sixty daughters);
22
and Rehobo'am appointed Abi'jah the son of Ma'acah as chief prince among his brothers, for he intended to make him king.
23
And he dealt wisely, and distributed some of his sons through all the districts of Judah and Benjamin, in all the fortified cities; and he gave them abundant provisions, and procured wives for them.


2 Chronicles 12

1
When the rule of Rehobo'am was established and was strong, he forsook the law of the LORD, and all Israel with him.
2
In the fifth year of King Rehobo'am, because they had been unfaithful to the LORD, Shishak king of Egypt came up against Jerusalem
3
with twelve hundred chariots and sixty thousand horsemen. And the people were without number who came with him from Egypt--Libyans, Suk'ki-im, and Ethiopians.
4
And he took the fortified cities of Judah and came as far as Jerusalem.
5
Then Shemai'ah the prophet came to Rehobo'am and to the princes of Judah, who had gathered at Jerusalem because of Shishak, and said to them, "Thus says the LORD, 'You abandoned me, so I have abandoned you to the hand of Shishak.'"
6
Then the princes of Israel and the king humbled themselves and said, "The LORD is righteous."
7
When the LORD saw that they humbled themselves, the word of the LORD came to Shemai'ah: "They have humbled themselves; I will not destroy them, but I will grant them some deliverance, and my wrath shall not be poured out upon Jerusalem by the hand of Shishak.
8
Nevertheless they shall be servants to him, that they may know my service and the service of the kingdoms of the countries."
9
So Shishak king of Egypt came up against Jerusalem; he took away the treasures of the house of the LORD and the treasures of the king's house; he took away everything. He also took away the shields of gold which Solomon had made;
10
and King Rehobo'am made in their stead shields of bronze, and committed them to the hands of the officers of the guard, who kept the door of the king's house.
11
And as often as the king went into the house of the LORD, the guard came and bore them, and brought them back to the guardroom.
12
And when he humbled himself the wrath of the LORD turned from him, so as not to make a complete destruction; moreover, conditions were good in Judah.
13
So King Rehobo'am established himself in Jerusalem and reigned. Rehobo'am was forty-one years old when he began to reign, and he reigned seventeen years in Jerusalem, the city which the LORD had chosen out of all the tribes of Israel to put his name there. His mother's name was Na'amah the Ammonitess.
14
And he did evil, for he did not set his heart to seek the LORD.
15
Now the acts of Rehobo'am, from first to last, are they not written in the chronicles of Shemai'ah the prophet and of Iddo the seer? There were continual wars between Rehobo'am and Jerobo'am.
16
And Rehobo'am slept with his fathers, and was buried in the city of David; and Abi'jah his son reigned in his stead.


2 Chronicles 13

1
In the eighteenth year of King Jerobo'am Abi'jah began to reign over Judah.
2
He reigned for three years in Jerusalem. His mother's name was Micai'ah the daughter of U'riel of Gib'e-ah. Now there was war between Abi'jah and Jerobo'am.
3
Abi'jah went out to battle having an army of valiant men of war, four hundred thousand picked men; and Jerobo'am drew up his line of battle against him with eight hundred thousand picked mighty warriors.
4
Then Abi'jah stood up on Mount Zemara'im which is in the hill country of E'phraim, and said, "Hear me, O Jerobo'am and all Israel!
5
Ought you not to know that the LORD God of Israel gave the kingship over Israel for ever to David and his sons by a covenant of salt?
6
Yet Jerobo'am the son of Nebat, a servant of Solomon the son of David, rose up and rebelled against his lord;
7
and certain worthless scoundrels gathered about him and defied Rehobo'am the son of Solomon, when Rehobo'am was young and irresolute and could not withstand them.
8
"And now you think to withstand the kingdom of the LORD in the hand of the sons of David, because you are a great multitude and have with you the golden calves which Jerobo'am made you for gods.
9
Have you not driven out the priests of the LORD, the sons of Aaron, and the Levites, and made priests for yourselves like the peoples of other lands? Whoever comes to consecrate himself with a young bull or seven rams becomes a priest of what are no gods.
10
But as for us, the LORD is our God, and we have not forsaken him. We have priests ministering to the LORD who are sons of Aaron, and Levites for their service.
11
They offer to the LORD every morning and every evening burnt offerings and incense of sweet spices, set out the showbread on the table of pure gold, and care for the golden lampstand that its lamps may burn every evening; for we keep the charge of the LORD our God, but you have forsaken him.
12
Behold, God is with us at our head, and his priests with their battle trumpets to sound the call to battle against you. O sons of Israel, do not fight against the LORD, the God of your fathers; for you cannot succeed."
13
Jerobo'am had sent an ambush around to come on them from behind; thus his troops were in front of Judah, and the ambush was behind them.
14
And when Judah looked, behold, the battle was before and behind them; and they cried to the LORD, and the priests blew the trumpets.
15
Then the men of Judah raised the battle shout. And when the men of Judah shouted, God defeated Jerobo'am and all Israel before Abi'jah and Judah.
16
The men of Israel fled before Judah, and God gave them into their hand.
17
Abi'jah and his people slew them with a great slaughter; so there fell slain of Israel five hundred thousand picked men.
18
Thus the men of Israel were subdued at that time, and the men of Judah prevailed, because they relied upon the LORD, the God of their fathers.
19
And Abi'jah pursued Jerobo'am, and took cities from him, Bethel with its villages and Jesha'nah with its villages and Ephron with its villages.
20
Jerobo'am did not recover his power in the days of Abi'jah; and the LORD smote him, and he died.
21
But Abi'jah grew mighty. And he took fourteen wives, and had twenty-two sons and sixteen daughters.
22
The rest of the acts of Abi'jah, his ways and his sayings, are written in the story of the prophet Iddo.


2 Chronicles 14

1
So Abi'jah slept with his fathers, and they buried him in the city of David; and Asa his son reigned in his stead. In his days the land had rest for ten years.
2
And Asa did what was good and right in the eyes of the LORD his God.
3
He took away the foreign altars and the high places, and broke down the pillars and hewed down the Ashe'rim,
4
and commanded Judah to seek the LORD, the God of their fathers, and to keep the law and the commandment.
5
He also took out of all the cities of Judah the high places and the incense altars. And the kingdom had rest under him.
6
He built fortified cities in Judah, for the land had rest. He had no war in those years, for the LORD gave him peace.
7
And he said to Judah, "Let us build these cities, and surround them with walls and towers, gates and bars; the land is still ours, because we have sought the LORD our God; we have sought him, and he has given us peace on every side." So they built and prospered.
8
And Asa had an army of three hundred thousand from Judah, armed with bucklers and spears, and two hundred and eighty thousand men from Benjamin, that carried shields and drew bows; all these were mighty men of valor.
9
Zerah the Ethiopian came out against them with an army of a million men and three hundred chariots, and came as far as Mare'shah.
10
And Asa went out to meet him, and they drew up their lines of battle in the valley of Zeph'athah at Mare'shah.
11
And Asa cried to the LORD his God, "O LORD, there is none like thee to help, between the mighty and the weak. Help us, O LORD our God, for we rely on thee, and in thy name we have come against this multitude. O LORD, thou art our God; let not man prevail against thee."
12
So the LORD defeated the Ethiopians before Asa and before Judah, and the Ethiopians fled.
13
Asa and the people that were with him pursued them as far as Gerar, and the Ethiopians fell until none remained alive; for they were broken before the LORD and his army. The men of Judah carried away very much booty.
14
And they smote all the cities round about Gerar, for the fear of the LORD was upon them. They plundered all the cities, for there was much plunder in them.
15
And they smote the tents of those who had cattle, and carried away sheep in abundance and camels. Then they returned to Jerusalem.


2 Chronicles 15

1
The Spirit of God came upon Azari'ah the son of Oded,
2
and he went out to meet Asa, and said to him, "Hear me, Asa, and all Judah and Benjamin: The LORD is with you, while you are with him. If you seek him, he will be found by you, but if you forsake him, he will forsake you.
3
For a long time Israel was without the true God, and without a teaching priest, and without law;
4
but when in their distress they turned to the LORD, the God of Israel, and sought him, he was found by them.
5
In those times there was no peace to him who went out or to him who came in, for great disturbances afflicted all the inhabitants of the lands.
6
They were broken in pieces, nation against nation and city against city, for God troubled them with every sort of distress.
7
But you, take courage! Do not let your hands be weak, for your work shall be rewarded."
8
When Asa heard these words, the prophecy of Azari'ah the son of Oded, he took courage, and put away the abominable idols from all the land of Judah and Benjamin and from the cities which he had taken in the hill country of E'phraim, and he repaired the altar of the LORD that was in front of the vestibule of the house of the LORD.
9
And he gathered all Judah and Benjamin, and those from E'phraim, Manas'seh, and Simeon who were sojourning with them, for great numbers had deserted to him from Israel when they saw that the LORD his God was with him.
10
They were gathered at Jerusalem in the third month of the fifteenth year of the reign of Asa.
11
They sacrificed to the LORD on that day, from the spoil which they had brought, seven hundred oxen and seven thousand sheep.
12
And they entered into a covenant to seek the LORD, the God of their fathers, with all their heart and with all their soul;
13
and that whoever would not seek the LORD, the God of Israel, should be put to death, whether young or old, man or woman.
14
They took oath to the LORD with a loud voice, and with shouting, and with trumpets, and with horns.
15
And all Judah rejoiced over the oath; for they had sworn with all their heart, and had sought him with their whole desire, and he was found by them, and the LORD gave them rest round about.
16
Even Ma'acah, his mother, King Asa removed from being queen mother because she had made an abominable image for Ashe'rah. Asa cut down her image, crushed it, and burned it at the brook Kidron.
17
But the high places were not taken out of Israel. Nevertheless the heart of Asa was blameless all his days.
18
And he brought into the house of God the votive gifts of his father and his own votive gifts, silver, and gold, and vessels.
19
And there was no more war until the thirty-fifth year of the reign of Asa.
