Chapter 21

Yes Word (Tyndale-Modern English)

Compare

      Jehosaphat laid him to rest with his fathers, and was buried with his fathers in the city of David and Jehoram his son reigned in his room: which Jehoram had other brethren, sons of Jehosaphat, Asariah, Jehiel, Zachariah, Asariah, Michael and Sephatia. All these were the sons of Jehosapaht king of Juda. And their father gave them many great gifts in silver, gold and other precious things with strong cities in Juda: but the kingdom he gave to Jehoram, because he was the eldest. And when Jehoram was up upon the kingdom of his father and settled, he slew all his other brethren with the sword, and diverse of the Lords of Israel thereto. Jehoram was thirty two years old when he began to reign, and he reigned eight years in Jerusalem. And he walked in the ways of the kings of Israel, like as did the house of Ahab (for a daughter of Ahab was his wife) and he wrought evil in the eyes of the Lord. How be it the Lord would not destroy the house of David, because of the covenant that he had made with David, as he promised to give a light to him and to his sons for ever.
      In his days the Edomites departed from under the hand of Juda and made them a king. And Jehoram went forth with his lords and all his chariots with him and rose by night and laid on the Edomites. Which compassed him in and the captains of his chariots. And so Edom departed from under the hand of Juda unto this day. That same time also did lobnah depart from under his power, because he left the Lord God of his fathers. Moreover he made hillaltars in the mountains of Juda, and cause the inhabiters of Jerusalem to commit adultery, and he thrust Juda out of the way.
      And there came a writing to him from Eliah the prophet of this tenor. Thus saith the Lord God of David thy father: because thou walkedst not in the ways of Jehosaphat thy father and in the ways of Asa king of Juda, but walkedst in the ways of Asa king of Israel and hast made Juda and the dwellers of Jerusalem go awhoring, like to the whoring of the house of Ahab, and hast thereto slain thy brethren that were thy fathers house, which were better than thou: Therefore behold the Lord will smite thee with a mighty plague in thy folk, in thy children, in thy wives and in thy goods. And thou shalt have much disease through infirmity in thy bowels, until thy bowels fall out by reason of thy sickness, day by day.
      And the Lord stirred up against Jehoram the spirit of the Philistines and the Arabians that border on the black moors. Which came against Juda and all to tare the land, and carried away all the substance that was found in the kings house, and thereto his sons and his wives: so that there was never a son left him save Jehoahaz his youngest son. And after all that, the Lord smote him in his bowels with an incurable disease. And in process of time, even about the end of two years, his guts fell out by reason of his sickness: and so he died of evil diseases. But they made him no bonfire, like the bonfires of his fathers. When he began to reign, he was twenty seven years old, and reigned in Jerusalem eight years. And he walked not pleasantly and they buried him in the city of David: but not in the sepulcher of the kings.
