    20:1 And Benhadad 1130 the king 4428 of Syria 758 gathered 6908 0 all his host 2428 together 6908 8804: and [there were] thirty 7970 and two 8147 kings 4428 with him, and horses 5483, and chariots 7393: and he went up 5927 8799 and besieged 6696 8799 Samaria 8111, and warred 3898 8735 against it.

    20:2 And he sent 7971 8799 messengers 4397 to Ahab 256 king 4428 of Israel 3478 into the city 5892, and said 559 8799 unto him, Thus saith 559 8804 Benhadad 1130,

    20:3 Thy silver 3701 and thy gold 2091 [is] mine; thy wives 802 also and thy children 1121, [even] the goodliest 2896, [are] mine.

    20:4 And the king 4428 of Israel 3478 answered 6030 8799 and said 559 8799, My lord 113, O king 4428, according to thy saying 1697, I [am] thine, and all that I have.

    20:5 And the messengers 4397 came again 7725 8799, and said 559 8799, Thus speaketh 559 8804 Benhadad 1130, saying 559 8800, Although I have sent 7971 8804 unto thee, saying 559 8800, Thou shalt deliver 5414 8799 me thy silver 3701, and thy gold 2091, and thy wives 802, and thy children 1121;

    20:6 Yet I will send 7971 8799 my servants 5650 unto thee to morrow 4279 about this time 6256, and they shall search 2664 8765 thine house 1004, and the houses 1004 of thy servants 5650; and it shall be 1961 8804, [that] whatsoever is pleasant 4261 in thine eyes 5869, they shall put 7760 8799 [it] in their hand 3027, and take [it] away 3947 8804.(pleasant: Heb. desirable)

    20:7 Then the king 4428 of Israel 3478 called 7121 8799 all the elders 2205 of the land 776, and said 559 8799, Mark 3045 8798, I pray you, and see 7200 8798 how this [man] seeketh 1245 8764 mischief 7451: for he sent 7971 8804 unto me for my wives 802, and for my children 1121, and for my silver 3701, and for my gold 2091; and I denied 4513 8804 him not.(I denied…: Heb. I kept not back from him)

    20:8 And all the elders 2205 and all the people 5971 said 559 8799 unto him, Hearken 8085 8799 not [unto him], nor consent 14 8799.

    20:9 Wherefore he said 559 8799 unto the messengers 4397 of Benhadad 1130, Tell 559 8798 my lord 113 the king 4428, All that thou didst send 7971 8804 for to thy servant 5650 at the first 7223 I will do 6213 8799: but this thing 1697 I may 3201 8799 not do 6213 8800. And the messengers 4397 departed 3212 8799, and brought 7725 0 him word 1697 again 7725 8686.

    20:10 And Benhadad 1130 sent 7971 8799 unto him, and said 559 8799, The gods 430 do so 6213 8799 unto me, and more also 3254 8686, if the dust 6083 of Samaria 8111 shall suffice 5606 8799 for handfuls 8168 for all the people 5971 that follow 7272 me.(follow…: Heb. are at my feet)

    20:11 And the king 4428 of Israel 3478 answered 6030 8799 and said 559 8799, Tell 1696 8761 [him], Let not him that girdeth 2296 8802 on [his harness] boast 1984 8691 himself as he that putteth it off 6605 8764.

    20:12 And it came to pass, when [Benhadad] heard 8085 8800 this message 1697, as he [was] drinking 8354 8802, he and the kings 4428 in the pavilions 5521, that he said 559 8799 unto his servants 5650, Set 7760 8798 [yourselves in array]. And they set 7760 8799 [themselves in array] against the city 5892.(message: Heb. word)(pavilions: or, tents)(Set yourselves…: or, Place the engines. And they placed the engines)

    20:13 And, behold, there came 5066 8738 a 259 prophet 5030 unto Ahab 256 king 4428 of Israel 3478, saying 559 8799, Thus saith 559 8804 the LORD 3068, Hast thou seen 7200 8804 all this great 1419 multitude 1995? behold, I will deliver 5414 8802 it into thine hand 3027 this day 3117; and thou shalt know 3045 8804 that I [am] the LORD 3068.(came: Heb. approached)

    20:14 And Ahab 256 said 559 8799, By whom? And he said 559 8799, Thus saith 559 8804 the LORD 3068, [Even] by the young men 5288 of the princes 8269 of the provinces 4082. Then he said 559 8799, Who shall order 631 8799 the battle 4421? And he answered 559 8799, Thou.(young…: or, servants)(order: Heb. bind, or, tie)

    20:15 Then he numbered 6485 8799 the young men 5288 of the princes 8269 of the provinces 4082, and they were two 8147 hundred 3967 and thirty 7970 two 8147: and after 310 them he numbered 6485 8804 all the people 5971, [even] all the children 1121 of Israel 3478, [being] seven 7651 thousand 505.

    20:16 And they went out 3318 8799 at noon 6672. But Benhadad 1130 [was] drinking 8354 8802 himself drunk 7910 in the pavilions 5521, he and the kings 4428, the thirty 7970 and two 8147 kings 4428 that helped 5826 8802 him.

    20:17 And the young men 5288 of the princes 8269 of the provinces 4082 went out 3318 8799 first 7223; and Benhadad 1130 sent out 7971 8799, and they told 5046 8686 him, saying 559 8800, There are men 582 come out 3318 8804 of Samaria 8111.

    20:18 And he said 559 8799, Whether they be come out 3318 8804 for peace 7965, take 8610 8798 them alive 2416; or whether they be come out 3318 8804 for war 4421, take 8610 8798 them alive 2416.

    20:19 So these young men 5288 of the princes 8269 of the provinces 4082 came out 3318 8804 of the city 5892, and the army 2428 which followed 310 them.

    20:20 And they slew 5221 8686 every one 376 his man 376: and the Syrians 758 fled 5127 8799; and Israel 3478 pursued 7291 8799 them: and Benhadad 1130 the king 4428 of Syria 758 escaped 4422 8735 on an horse 5483 with the horsemen 6571.

    20:21 And the king 4428 of Israel 3478 went out 3318 8799, and smote 5221 8686 the horses 5483 and chariots 7393, and slew 5221 8689 the Syrians 758 with a great 1419 slaughter 4347.

    20:22 And the prophet 5030 came 5066 8799 to the king 4428 of Israel 3478, and said 559 8799 unto him, Go 3212 8798, strengthen 2388 8690 thyself, and mark 3045 8798, and see 7200 8798 what thou doest 6213 8799: for at the return 8666 of the year 8141 the king 4428 of Syria 758 will come up 5927 8802 against thee.

    20:23 And the servants 5650 of the king 4428 of Syria 758 said 559 8804 unto him, Their gods 430 [are] gods 430 of the hills 2022; therefore they were stronger 2388 8804 than we; but 199 let us fight 3898 8735 against them in the plain 4334, and surely 3808 we shall be stronger 2388 8799 than they.

    20:24 And do 6213 8798 this thing 1697, Take 5493 8685 the kings 4428 away, every man 376 out of his place 4725, and put 7760 8798 captains 6346 in their rooms:

    20:25 And number 4487 8799 thee an army 2428, like the army 2428 that thou hast lost 5307 8802, horse 5483 for horse 5483, and chariot 7393 for chariot 7393: and we will fight 3898 8735 against 854 them in the plain 4334, [and] surely we shall be stronger 2388 8799 than they. And he hearkened 8085 8799 unto their voice 6963, and did so 6213 8799.(that thou…: Heb. that was fallen)

    20:26 And it came to pass at the return 8666 of the year 8141, that Benhadad 1130 numbered 6485 8799 the Syrians 758, and went up 5927 8799 to Aphek 663, to fight 4421 against Israel 3478.(to fight…: Heb. to the war with Israel)

    20:27 And the children 1121 of Israel 3478 were numbered 6485 8719, and were all present 3557 8791, and went 3212 8799 against 7125 8800 them: and the children 1121 of Israel 3478 pitched 2583 8799 before them like two 8147 little flocks 2835 of kids 5795; but the Syrians 758 filled 4390 8765 the country 776.(were all…: or, were nourished)

    20:28 And there came 5066 8799 a man 376 of God 430, and spake 559 8799 unto the king 4428 of Israel 3478, and said 559 8799, Thus saith 559 8804 the LORD 3068, Because the Syrians 758 have said 559 8804, The LORD 3068 [is] God 430 of the hills 2022, but he [is] not God 430 of the valleys 6010, therefore will I deliver 5414 8804 all this great 1419 multitude 1995 into thine hand 3027, and ye shall know 3045 8804 that I [am] the LORD 3068.

    20:29 And they pitched 2583 8799 one 428 over against 5227 the other 428 seven 7651 days 3117. And [so] it was, that in the seventh 7637 day 3117 the battle 4421 was joined 7126 8799: and the children 1121 of Israel 3478 slew 5221 8686 of the Syrians 758 an hundred 3967 thousand 505 footmen 7273 in one 259 day 3117.

    20:30 But the rest 3498 8737 fled 5127 8799 to Aphek 663, into the city 5892; and [there] a wall 2346 fell 5307 8799 upon twenty 6242 and seven 7651 thousand 505 of the men 376 [that were] left 3498 8737. And Benhadad 1130 fled 5127 8804, and came 935 8799 into the city 5892, into an inner 2315 chamber 2315.(into an…: or, from chamber to chamber: Heb. into a chamber within a chamber)

    20:31 And his servants 5650 said 559 8799 unto him, Behold now, we have heard 8085 8804 that the kings 4428 of the house 1004 of Israel 3478 [are] merciful 2617 kings 4428: let us, I pray thee, put 7760 8799 sackcloth 8242 on our loins 4975, and ropes 2256 upon our heads 7218, and go out 3318 8799 to the king 4428 of Israel 3478: peradventure he will save 2421 8762 thy life 5315.

    20:32 So they girded 2296 8799 sackcloth 8242 on their loins 4975, and [put] ropes 2256 on their heads 7218, and came 935 8799 to the king 4428 of Israel 3478, and said 559 8799, Thy servant 5650 Benhadad 1130 saith 559 8804, I pray thee, let me live 2421 8799 5315. And he said 559 8799, [Is] he yet alive 2416? he [is] my brother 251.

    20:33 Now the men 582 did diligently observe 5172 8762 whether [any thing would come] from him, and did hastily 4116 8762 catch 2480 8686 [it]: and they said 559 8799, Thy brother 251 Benhadad 1130. Then he said 559 8799, Go 935 8798 ye, bring 3947 8798 him. Then Benhadad 1130 came forth 3318 8799 to him; and he caused him to come up 5927 8686 into the chariot 4818.

    20:34 And [Benhadad] said 559 8799 unto him, The cities 5892, which my father 1 took 3947 8804 from thy father 1, I will restore 7725 8686; and thou shalt make 7760 8799 streets 2351 for thee in Damascus 1834, as my father 1 made 7760 8804 in Samaria 8111. Then [said Ahab], I will send thee away 7971 8762 with this covenant 1285. So he made 3772 8799 a covenant 1285 with him, and sent him away 7971 8762.

    20:35 And a certain 259 man 376 of the sons 1121 of the prophets 5030 said 559 8804 unto his neighbour 7453 in the word 1697 of the LORD 3068, Smite 5221 8685 me, I pray thee. And the man 376 refused 3985 8762 to smite 5221 8687 him.

    20:36 Then said 559 8799 he unto him, Because thou hast not obeyed 8085 8804 the voice 6963 of the LORD 3068, behold, as soon as thou art departed 1980 8802 from me, a lion 738 shall slay 5221 8689 thee. And as soon as he was departed 3212 8799 from him 681, a lion 738 found 4672 8799 him, and slew 5221 8686 him.

    20:37 Then he found 4672 8799 another 312 man 376, and said 559 8799, Smite 5221 8685 me, I pray thee. And the man 376 smote 5221 8686 him, so that in smiting 5221 8687 he wounded 6481 8800 [him].(so that…: Heb. smiting and wounding)

    20:38 So the prophet 5030 departed 3212 8799, and waited 5975 8799 for the king 4428 by the way 1870, and disguised 2664 8691 himself with ashes 666 upon his face 5869.

    20:39 And as the king 4428 passed by 5674 8802, he cried 6817 8804 unto the king 4428: and he said 559 8799, Thy servant 5650 went out 3318 8804 into the midst 7130 of the battle 4421; and, behold, a man 376 turned aside 5493 8804, and brought 935 8686 a man 376 unto me, and said 559 8799, Keep 8104 8798 this man 376: if by any means 6485 8736 he be missing 6485 8735, then shall thy life 5315 be for his life 5315, or else thou shalt pay 8254 8799 a talent 3603 of silver 3701.(pay: Heb. weigh)

    20:40 And as thy servant 5650 was busy 6213 8802 here and there, he was gone 369. And the king 4428 of Israel 3478 said 559 8799 unto him, So [shall] thy judgment 4941 [be]; thyself hast decided 2782 8804 [it].(he was…: Heb. he was not)

    20:41 And he hasted 4116 8762, and took the ashes 666 away 5493 8686 from his face 5869; and the king 4428 of Israel 3478 discerned 5234 8686 him that he [was] of the prophets 5030.

    20:42 And he said 559 8799 unto him, Thus saith 559 8804 the LORD 3068, Because thou hast let go 7971 8765 out of [thy] hand 3027 a man 376 whom I appointed to utter destruction 2764, therefore thy life 5315 shall go for his life 5315, and thy people 5971 for his people 5971.

    20:43 And the king 4428 of Israel 3478 went 3212 8799 to his house 1004 heavy 5620 and displeased 2198, and came 935 8799 to Samaria 8111.
