    22:1 And they continued 3427 8799 three 7969 years 8141 without war 4421 between Syria 758 and Israel 3478.

    22:2 And it came to pass in the third 7992 year 8141, that Jehoshaphat 3092 the king 4428 of Judah 3063 came down 3381 8799 to the king 4428 of Israel 3478.

    22:3 And the king 4428 of Israel 3478 said 559 8799 unto his servants 5650, Know 3045 8804 ye that Ramoth 7433 in Gilead 1568 [is] ours, and we [be] still 2814 8688, [and] take 3947 8800 it not out of the hand 3027 of the king 4428 of Syria 758?(still…: Heb. silent from taking it)

    22:4 And he said 559 8799 unto Jehoshaphat 3092, Wilt thou go 3212 8799 with me to battle 4421 to Ramothgilead 7433 1568? And Jehoshaphat 3092 said 559 8799 to the king 4428 of Israel 3478, I [am] as thou 3644 [art], my people 5971 as thy people 5971, my horses 5483 as thy horses 5483.

    22:5 And Jehoshaphat 3092 said 559 8799 unto the king 4428 of Israel 3478, Enquire 1875 8798, I pray thee, at the word 1697 of the LORD 3068 to day 3117.

    22:6 Then the king 4428 of Israel 3478 gathered 6908 0 the prophets 5030 together 6908 8799, about four 702 hundred 3967 men 376, and said 559 8799 unto them, Shall I go 3212 8799 against Ramothgilead 7433 1568 to battle 4421, or shall I forbear 2308 8799? And they said 559 8799, Go up 5927 8798; for the Lord 136 shall deliver 5414 8799 [it] into the hand 3027 of the king 4428.

    22:7 And Jehoshaphat 3092 said 559 8799, [Is there] not here a prophet 5030 of the LORD 3068 besides 5750, that we might enquire 1875 8799 of him?

    22:8 And the king 4428 of Israel 3478 said 559 8799 unto Jehoshaphat 3092, [There is] yet one 259 man 376, Micaiah 4321 the son 1121 of Imlah 3229, by whom we may enquire 1875 8800 of the LORD 3068: but I hate 8130 8804 him; for he doth not prophesy 5012 8691 good 2896 concerning me, but evil 7451. And Jehoshaphat 3092 said 559 8799, Let not the king 4428 say 559 8799 so.

    22:9 Then the king 4428 of Israel 3478 called 7121 8799 an 259 officer 5631, and said 559 8799, Hasten 4116 8761 [hither] Micaiah 4321 the son 1121 of Imlah 3229.(officer: or, eunuch)

    22:10 And the king 4428 of Israel 3478 and Jehoshaphat 3092 the king 4428 of Judah 3063 sat 3427 8802 each 376 on his throne 3678, having put on 3847 8794 their robes 899, in a void place 1637 in the entrance 6607 of the gate 8179 of Samaria 8111; and all the prophets 5030 prophesied 5012 8693 before 6440 them.(void…: Heb. floor)

    22:11 And Zedekiah 6667 the son 1121 of Chenaanah 3668 made 6213 8799 him horns 7161 of iron 1270: and he said 559 8799, Thus saith 559 8804 the LORD 3068, With these shalt thou push 5055 8762 the Syrians 758, until thou have consumed 3615 8763 them.

    22:12 And all the prophets 5030 prophesied 5012 8737 so, saying 559 8800, Go up 5927 8798 to Ramothgilead 7433 1568, and prosper 6743 8685: for the LORD 3068 shall deliver 5414 8804 [it] into the king's 4428 hand 3027.

    22:13 And the messenger 4397 that was gone 1980 8804 to call 7121 8800 Micaiah 4321 spake 1696 8765 unto him, saying 559 8800, Behold now, the words 1697 of the prophets 5030 [declare] good 2896 unto the king 4428 with one 259 mouth 6310: let thy word 1697, I pray thee, be like the word 1697 of one 259 of them, and speak 1696 8765 [that which is] good 2896.

    22:14 And Micaiah 4321 said 559 8799, [As] the LORD 3068 liveth 2416, what the LORD 3068 saith 559 8799 unto me, that will I speak 1696 8762.

    22:15 So he came 935 8799 to the king 4428. And the king 4428 said 559 8799 unto him, Micaiah 4321, shall we go 3212 8799 against Ramothgilead 7433 1568 to battle 4421, or shall we forbear 2308 8799? And he answered 559 8799 him, Go 5927 8798, and prosper 6743 8685: for the LORD 3068 shall deliver 5414 8804 [it] into the hand 3027 of the king 4428.

    22:16 And the king 4428 said 559 8799 unto him, How many times 6471 shall I adjure 7650 8688 thee that thou tell 1696 8762 me nothing but [that which is] true 571 in the name 8034 of the LORD 3068?

    22:17 And he said 559 8799, I saw 7200 8804 all Israel 3478 scattered 6327 8737 upon the hills 2022, as sheep 6629 that have not a shepherd 7462 8802: and the LORD 3068 said 559 8799, These have no master 113: let them return 7725 8799 every man 376 to his house 1004 in peace 7965.

    22:18 And the king 4428 of Israel 3478 said 559 8799 unto Jehoshaphat 3092, Did I not tell 559 8804 thee that he would prophesy 5012 8691 no good 2896 concerning me, but evil 7451?

    22:19 And he said 559 8799, Hear 8085 8798 thou therefore the word 1697 of the LORD 3068: I saw 7200 8804 the LORD 3068 sitting 3427 8802 on his throne 3678, and all the host 6635 of heaven 8064 standing 5975 8802 by him on his right hand 3225 and on his left 8040.

    22:20 And the LORD 3068 said 559 8799, Who shall persuade 6601 8762 Ahab 256, that he may go up 5927 8799 and fall 5307 8799 at Ramothgilead 7433 1568? And one said 559 8799 on this manner 3541, and another said 559 8802 on that manner 3541.(persuade: or, deceive)

    22:21 And there came forth 3318 8799 a spirit 7307, and stood 5975 8799 before 6440 the LORD 3068, and said 559 8799, I will persuade 6601 8762 him.

    22:22 And the LORD 3068 said 559 8799 unto him, Wherewith? And he said 559 8799, I will go forth 3318 8799, and I will be a lying 8267 spirit 7307 in the mouth 6310 of all his prophets 5030. And he said 559 8799, Thou shalt persuade 6601 8762 [him], and prevail 3201 8799 also: go forth 3318 8798, and do 6213 8798 so.

    22:23 Now therefore, behold, the LORD 3068 hath put 5414 8804 a lying 8267 spirit 7307 in the mouth 6310 of all these thy prophets 5030, and the LORD 3068 hath spoken 1696 8765 evil 7451 concerning thee.

    22:24 But Zedekiah 6667 the son 1121 of Chenaanah 3668 went near 5066 8799, and smote 5221 8686 Micaiah 4321 on the cheek 3895, and said 559 8799, Which way 335 went 5674 8804 the Spirit 7307 of the LORD 3068 from me to speak 1696 8763 unto thee?

    22:25 And Micaiah 4321 said 559 8799, Behold, thou shalt see 7200 8802 in that day 3117, when thou shalt go 935 8799 into an inner 2315 chamber 2315 to hide 2247 8736 thyself.(into…: or, from chamber to chamber: Heb. a chamber in a chamber)

    22:26 And the king 4428 of Israel 3478 said 559 8799, Take 3947 8798 Micaiah 4321, and carry him back 7725 8685 unto Amon 526 the governor 8269 of the city 5892, and to Joash 3101 the king's 4428 son 1121;

    22:27 And say 559 8804, Thus saith 559 8804 the king 4428, Put 7760 8798 this [fellow] in the prison 1004 3608, and feed 398 8685 him with bread 3899 of affliction 3906 and with water 4325 of affliction 3906, until I come 935 8800 in peace 7965.

    22:28 And Micaiah 4321 said 559 8799, If thou return 7725 8799 at all 7725 8800 in peace 7965, the LORD 3068 hath not spoken 1696 8765 by me. And he said 559 8799, Hearken 8085 8798, O people 5971, every one of you.

    22:29 So the king 4428 of Israel 3478 and Jehoshaphat 3092 the king 4428 of Judah 3063 went up 5927 8799 to Ramothgilead 7433 1568.

    22:30 And the king 4428 of Israel 3478 said 559 8799 unto Jehoshaphat 3092, I will disguise 2664 8692 myself, and enter 935 8800 into the battle 4421; but put thou on 3847 8798 thy robes 899. And the king 4428 of Israel 3478 disguised 2664 8691 himself, and went 935 8799 into the battle 4421.(I will…: or, when he was to disguise himself, and enter into the battle)

    22:31 But the king 4428 of Syria 758 commanded 6680 8765 his thirty 7970 and two 8147 captains 8269 that had rule over his chariots 7393, saying 559 8800, Fight 3898 8735 neither with small 6996 nor great 1419, save only with the king 4428 of Israel 3478.

    22:32 And it came to pass, when the captains 8269 of the chariots 7393 saw 7200 8800 Jehoshaphat 3092, that they said 559 8804, Surely it [is] the king 4428 of Israel 3478. And they turned aside 5493 8799 to fight 3898 8736 against him: and Jehoshaphat 3092 cried out 2199 8799.

    22:33 And it came to pass, when the captains 8269 of the chariots 7393 perceived 7200 8800 that it [was] not the king 4428 of Israel 3478, that they turned back 7725 8799 from pursuing 310 him.

    22:34 And a [certain] man 376 drew 4900 8804 a bow 7198 at a venture 8537, and smote 5221 8686 the king 4428 of Israel 3478 between the joints 1694 of the harness 8302: wherefore he said 559 8799 unto the driver of his chariot 7395, Turn 2015 8798 thine hand 3027, and carry me out 3318 8685 of the host 4264; for I am wounded 2470 8717.(at a…: Heb. in his simplicity)(joints…: Heb. joints and the breastplate)(wounded: Heb. made sick)

    22:35 And the battle 4421 increased 5927 8799 that day 3117: and the king 4428 was stayed up 5975 8716 in his chariot 4818 against 5227 the Syrians 758, and died 4191 8799 at even 6153: and the blood 1818 ran out 3332 8799 of the wound 4347 into the midst 2436 of the chariot 7393.(increased: Heb. ascended)(midst: Heb. bosom)

    22:36 And there went 5674 8799 a proclamation 7440 throughout the host 4264 about the going down 935 8800 of the sun 8121, saying 559 8800, Every man 376 to his city 5892, and every man 376 to his own country 776.

    22:37 So the king 4428 died 4191 8799, and was brought 935 8799 to Samaria 8111; and they buried 6912 8799 the king 4428 in Samaria 8111.(was brought: Heb. came)

    22:38 And [one] washed 7857 8799 the chariot 7393 in the pool 1295 of Samaria 8111; and the dogs 3611 licked up 3952 8799 his blood 1818; and they washed 7364 8804 his armour 2185; according unto the word 1697 of the LORD 3068 which he spake 1696 8765.

    22:39 Now the rest 3499 of the acts 1697 of Ahab 256, and all that he did 6213 8804, and the ivory 8127 house 1004 which he made 1129 8804, and all the cities 5892 that he built 1129 8804, [are] they not written 3789 8803 in the book 5612 of the chronicles 1697 3117 of the kings 4428 of Israel 3478?

    22:40 So Ahab 256 slept 7901 8799 with his fathers 1; and Ahaziah 274 his son 1121 reigned 4427 8799 in his stead.

    22:41 And Jehoshaphat 3092 the son 1121 of Asa 609 began to reign 4427 8804 over Judah 3063 in the fourth 702 year 8141 of Ahab 256 king 4428 of Israel 3478.

    22:42 Jehoshaphat 3092 [was] thirty 7970 and five 2568 years 8141 old 1121 when he began to reign 4427 8800; and he reigned 4427 8804 twenty 6242 and five 2568 years 8141 in Jerusalem 3389. And his mother's 517 name 8034 [was] Azubah 5806 the daughter 1323 of Shilhi 7977.

    22:43 And he walked 3212 8799 in all the ways 1870 of Asa 609 his father 1; he turned not aside 5493 8804 from it, doing 6213 8800 [that which was] right 3477 in the eyes 5869 of the LORD 3068: nevertheless the high places 1116 were not taken away 5493 8804; [for] the people 5971 offered 2076 8764 and burnt incense 6999 8764 yet in the high places 1116.

    22:44 And Jehoshaphat 3092 made peace 7999 8686 with the king 4428 of Israel 3478.

    22:45 Now the rest 3499 of the acts 1697 of Jehoshaphat 3092, and his might 1369 that he shewed 6213 8804, and how he warred 3898 8738, [are] they not written 3789 8803 in the book 5612 of the chronicles 1697 3117 of the kings 4428 of Judah 3063?

    22:46 And the remnant 3499 of the sodomites 6945, which remained 7604 8738 in the days 3117 of his father 1 Asa 609, he took 1197 8765 out of the land 776.

    22:47 [There was] then no king 4428 in Edom 123: a deputy 5324 8737 [was] king 4428.

    22:48 Jehoshaphat 3092 made 6213 8804 8675 6240 ships 591 of Tharshish 8659 to go 3212 8800 to Ophir 211 for gold 2091: but they went 1980 8804 not; for the ships 591 were broken 7665 8738 at Eziongeber 6100.(made…: or, had ten ships)

    22:49 Then said 559 8804 Ahaziah 274 the son 1121 of Ahab 256 unto Jehoshaphat 3092, Let my servants 5650 go 3212 8799 with thy servants 5650 in the ships 591. But Jehoshaphat 3092 would 14 8804 not.

    22:50 And Jehoshaphat 3092 slept 7901 8799 with his fathers 1, and was buried 6912 8735 with his fathers 1 in the city 5892 of David 1732 his father 1: and Jehoram 3088 his son 1121 reigned 4427 8799 in his stead.

    22:51 Ahaziah 274 the son 1121 of Ahab 256 began to reign 4427 8804 over Israel 3478 in Samaria 8111 the seventeenth 7651 6240 year 8141 of Jehoshaphat 3092 king 4428 of Judah 3063, and reigned 4427 8799 two years 8141 over Israel 3478.

    22:52 And he did 6213 8799 evil 7451 in the sight 5869 of the LORD 3068, and walked 3212 8799 in the way 1870 of his father 1, and in the way 1870 of his mother 517, and in the way 1870 of Jeroboam 3379 the son 1121 of Nebat 5028, who made Israel 3478 to sin 2398 8689:

    22:53 For he served 5647 8799 Baal 1168, and worshipped 7812 8691 him, and provoked to anger 3707 8686 the LORD 3068 God 430 of Israel 3478, according to all that his father 1 had done 6213 8804.
