When Solomon finished all these prayers and supplications to the Lord, he stood before the altar of the Lord where he had been kneeling with his hands outstretched toward heaven, stood up and blessed the entire assembly of Israel with a loud voice saying praise be. the lord who has given rest to his people israel just as he promised has not missed a word of all the good promises he gave to his servant moses may the lord our god be with us as he was with our ancestors who never let him not abandon us, let him turn our hearts to him to walk in obedience to him and keep the commandments, decrees and laws that he gave to our ancestors and made these mental words that I have prayed before the lord be close to our lord God day and night so that he can sustain the cause of his servant and the cause of his people Israel according to the needs of each day so that all the people of the earth know that the Lord is God and that there is no other and that his heart be fully committed to the lord our god to live his decrees and obey his commandments as at this time then the king and all israel with him offered sacrifices before the lord solomon offered sacrifice of fellowship offerings to the lord twenty-two thousand cows and one hundred and twenty thousand sheep and goats so that the king and all the Israelites dedicated the temple of Jehovah.
That same day the king consecrated the middle part of the court in front of the temple of Jehovah and there he offered burnt offerings, grain offerings and the fat of the fellowship offerings because the altar of The bronze that was before the Lord was too small to contain the burnt offerings, the grain offerings, and the fat of the fellowship offerings, so Solomon observed the feast at that time and all Israel with him, a great assembly, from Lebohameth to the wadi of Egypt, they celebrated it. before the Lord our God for seven days and seven days plus fourteen days in total.
The next day he dismissed the people, they blessed the king and then they went home rejoicing and glad of heart for all the good things that the Lord had done for his servant David. and his people israel the

book

of first kings continued when solomon had finished building the temple of the lord and the royal palace and had accomplished everything he had desired to do the lord appeared to him for the second time as the lord had appeared to him in gibeon He told him I have heard the prayer and supplication that you have made before me I have consecrated this temple that you have built by putting my name there forever my eyes and my heart will always be there as for you if you walk before me faithfully with integrity of heart and righteousness as your father David did and I do everything I command and observe my decrees and laws I will establish your royal throne over Israel forever as I promised your father David when I said that you would never fail to have a successor on the throne of Israel, but if you or your descendants turn away from me and do not observe the commandments and decrees that I have given them and go to serve other gods and worship them, then I will cut off Israel from the land that I have given them and reject this temple that I have consecrated to my name.
Israel will then become synonymous and an object of ridicule among all peoples. This temple will become a pile of rubble. All who pass by will be horrified and mock and say why the Lord has done such a thing. thing to this land and to this temple the people will respond because they have abandoned the lord their god who brought their ancestors out of Egypt and they have embraced other gods worshiping them and serving them that is why the lord brought all this disaster upon them at the end of 20 years during which solomon built these two buildings the temple of the lord and the royal palace king solomon gave 20 cities in galilee to hiram king of tire because hiram had provided him with all the cedar, juniper and gold he wanted, but when hiram He left.

The throne had six steps. and its backrest had a rounded top, on both sides of the seat there were armrests with a lion standing next to each of them, twelve lions standing on the six steps, one at each end of each step, nothing like this had ever been done for no other kingdom.
King Solomon's cups were gold and all the household items in the Lebanon Forest palace were pure gold Nothing was made of silver because silver was considered of little value in Solomon's day the king had a fleet of merchant ships In the sea along with Hiram's ships, once every three years he returned carrying gold, silver, and ivory, and monkeys, and baboons. King Solomon was greater in wealth and wisdom than all the other kings of the earth. The whole world sought an audience with Solomon to listen. the wisdom that God had placed in his heart year after year, all those who came brought as gifts cloaks of silver and gold, weapons, spices, horses and mules.
Solomon accumulated chariots and horses, he had 1,400 chariots and 12,000 horses, which he kept in the chariot cities and also with him in Jerusalem the king. They made silver as common in Jerusalem as stones and cedar as abundant as sycamore fig trees in the hills. Solomon's horses were imported from Egypt and were purchased from Kiwi by royal merchants at Kewee at the current price. They imported a chariot from Egypt for 600 shekels of silver. and one horse for one hundred and fifty they also exported to all the kings of the Hittites and to King Solomon of Aramea. However, they loved many foreign women in addition to the daughter of Pharaoh, Moabites, Ammonites, Sidonians and Hittites, they were from nations of which the Lord had spoken.
To the Israelites you should not marry them because they will surely turn your hearts after their gods, however, Solomon clung to them with love, he had 700 wives of royal birth and 300 concubines and his wives led him astray when Solomon grew old, his wives They changed their hearts later. other gods and his heart was not completely dedicated to the Lord his god as the heart of his father David had been. He followed Ashtareth, the goddess of the Sidonians, and Molech, the detestable god of the Ammonites, so Solomon did evil in the sight of the lord. He did not follow the Lord completely as David his father had done on a hill east of Jerusalem Solomon built a high place for Kimash the detestable god of Moab and for Molech the detestable god of the Ammonites he did the same with all his foreign wives which they burned incense and offered sacrifices to their gods the lord was angry with solomon because his heart had turned away from the lord the god of israel who had appeared to him twice although he had forbidden solomon to follow other gods solomon did not fulfill the lord's command like this that the Lord said to Solomon, since this is your attitude and you have not fulfilled my covenant and my decrees that I commanded you, I will certainly tear away the kingdom from you and give it to one of your subordinates, however, for the love of David , your father.
I will not do it during your lifetime, I will tear it out of your son's hand, but I will not tear the whole kingdom from him, but I will give him a tribe for the sake of David my servant and for the love of Jerusalem that I have. chosen then the lord raised up against solomon an adversary haydad the edomite of the royal line of eden before when david was fighting with eden joab the commander of the army that had gone up to bury the dead had struck down all the men in eden joab and all the israelites They stayed there for six months until they destroyed all the men in Edom, but still only one boy fled to Egypt with some Edomite officials who had served his father, they left for Midian and went to Pavón and then they took the people of Stop with them they went to Egypt to Pharaoh king of Egypt who gave Haydad a house and land and provided him with food.
Pharaoh was so pleased with Haddad that he gave him a sister from his own wife, Queen Tiffany, in marriage the sister From Tafunis he gave him a son named Genubit whom Tafenese raised in the royal palace there Gnubit lived with Pharaoh's own children while in Egypt Haydad heard that David rested with his ancestors and that Joab the commander of the army was also dead then Haydad said to Pharaoh, let me go. I can return to my own country. What have you been missing here? Do you want to return to your own country? Pharaoh did not ask anything.
Hey, Dad answered, but let me go. And God raised another adversary against Solomon. Reason, son of Eliader, who had fled from his the master hates adesa king ofZoba When David destroyed Zoba's army Reason gathered a group of men around him and became their leader They went to Damascus where they settled and took control Reason was Israel's adversary while Solomon lived, which added to the problems caused by hayden then reason ruled in aram and was hostile towards israel also jeroboam son of nebat rebelled against the king he was one of the officials of solomon and ephraimite of zerada and his mother was a widow called zaruya here There is the story of how he rebelled against the king that Solomon had built the terraces and had filled the gap in the wall of the city of David.
His father now Jeroboam was a man of prestige and when Solomon saw how well the young man did his work. He put him in charge of all the labor of Joseph's house. At that time, Jeroboam was leaving Jerusalem and the daughter of the prophet of Shiloh found him on the road wearing a new cloak. The two were alone in the field and the daughter took over. of the new cloak that he was wearing and tore it into 12 pieces and then he said to Jeroboam, take 10 pieces for yourself because this is what the Lord the god of Israel says, look, I am going to tear the kingdom out of the hands of Solomon and I will give you ten tribes, but for my sake the servant David and the city of Jerusalem that I have chosen among all the tribes of Israel he will have one tribe I will do this because they have abandoned me and have worshiped asterisk the goddess of the Sardonians submerged the god of the Moabites and Molek to the god of the Ammonites and have not walked in obedience to me nor have they done what is right in my sight nor have they kept my decrees and laws as the father of David Solomon did but I will not take the whole kingdom out of the hand of Solomon I have made him ruler all the days of his life for the love of David my servant whom I chose and who obeyed my commandments and decrees I will take the kingdom from the hands of his son and I will give you ten tribes I will give one tribe to his son so that May my servant David always have a lamp before me in Jerusalem, the city where I chose to put my name, however, I will take you and you will rule all your heart desires, you will be king over Israel if you do what I command you and walk in obedience. and do what is right in my sight by obeying my decrees and commands as my servant David did.
I will be with you. I will build your dynasty as lasting as the one I built for David.and I will give you Israel, I will humiliate David's descendants for this, but not forever, Solomon tried to kill Jeroboam, but Jeroboam fled to Egypt to shishak the king and remained there until Solomon's death, as for the other events of Solomon's reign, everything he did and the wisdom he showed, are they not written in the

book

of the annals of Solomon? Solomon reigned in Jerusalem over all Israel 40 years then he rested with his ancestors and was buried in the city of David his father and reborn his sons went to Shechem for all Israel he had gone there to make him king when Jeroboam son of Nebat heard this yet He was in Egypt where he had fled from King Solomon.
He returned from Egypt, so they sent for Jeroboam and he and the entire assembly of Israel went to Rehoboam and said, Your father put a heavy yoke on us, but now lighten the hard work and the heavy yoke that he put on us. and we will serve you rich he answered go for three days and then come back to me then the people left then king roboam consulted the elders who had served his father solomon during his life how would you advise me to respond to these people he asked they answered if today you will be a servant for these people and you will serve them and give them a favorable response they will always be your servants but Rehoboam He rejected the advice that the elders gave him and consulted the young people who had grown up with him and served him, he asked them what their advice is, how We must respond to these people who tell me, relieve the yoke that your father put on us young people. who had grown up with him answered these people have told you your father put a heavy yoke on us but lighten our yoke now tell them that my little finger is thicker than my father's waist my father put a heavy yoke on you I will make it even stronger my father burned you with whips I will whip you with scorpions three days later Jeroboam and all the people returned to Roboam as the king had said return to me in three days the king responded to the people harshly rejecting the advice that the elders gave him he followed the advice of the young man and said my father made your yoke heavy I will make it even heavier my father whipped you with whips I will whip you with scorpions so the king did not listen to the people because this turn of events was on the part of the lord so that the word he had said would be fulfilled.
The Lord had spoken to Jeroboam son of Nabat through there, the knight Shiloh, when all Israel saw that the king refused to listen to them, they answered the king, what part do we have in David, what part in the son of Jesse for your tents of campaign, Israel guard your own house, David, so the Israelites went home, but as for the Israelites who lived in the cities of Judah, Rehoboam still ruled over them. King Rehoboam sent Adenira, who was in charge of forced labor, but all Israel stoned him. However, the king of death Rehoboam managed to get into his chariot and escape to Jerusalem, so Israel has been in rebellion against the house of David until this day, when all the Israelites heard that Jeroboam had returned, they sent and They called him to the assembly and made him king. all of israel only the tribe of judah remained loyal to the house of david when rehoboam arrived in jerusalem he gathered the entire house of judah and the tribe of benjamin one hundred and eighty thousand capable young men to wage war against the house of israel and recover the kingdom for Roboam son of Solomon but this word of God came to Shema the man of God tell Roboam son of Solomon king of Judah to the entire house of Judah and to Benjamin and the rest of the people this is what the Lord says do it do not go up to fight against your brothers the Israelites return home each of you because this is my work so they obeyed the word of the lord and returned home as the lord had commanded then jeroboam fortified shechem in the hill country of ephraim and lived from there he went out and built the pineal jeroboam thought to himself that the kingdom will now probably return to the house of david if these people go up to offer sacrifices in the temple of the lord in jerusalem they will again give their allegiance to their lord reborn king of judah they will kill me and return to the royalty after seeking advice the king made two golden calves he told the people it is too much for you to go up to jerusalem here are your gods israel who took you out of egypt one settled in Bethel and the other in Dan and this became a sin, The people came to worship the one from Bethel and went to Dan to worship the other.
Jeroboam built sanctuaries in high places and appointed priests of all kinds of people, even though they were not Levites, he instituted a festival on the 15th day of the eighth month like the festival that was celebrated in Judah and offered sacrifices on the altar, this he did in Bethel, sacrificing the calves that he had made and in Bethel he also installed priests in the high places that he had made on the 15th day of the eighth month, a month of his own choosing, he offered sacrifices on the altar that he had built in Bethel, then he instituted the festival for the Israelites and he went up to the altar telling the word of the Lord.
A man of God came from Judah to Bethel while Jeroboam was standing at the altar to make an offering, he cried out against the altar at the word of the Lord altar then this is what the Lord says, a son named Josiah will be born in the house of David on you he will sacrifice to the priests of the high places who make offerings here and on you human bones will be burned that same day the man of god gave a sign this is the sign that the lord has declared the altar will be broken and the ashes on it will be poured out when King Jeroboam heard what the man of God shouted against the altar at Bethel, he stretched out his hand from the altar and said: grab it, but the hand that he stretched out toward the man was withered so that he could not remove it and the altar was He departed and his ashes were scattered according to the sign given by the man of god by the word of the lord, then the king said to the man of god, intercede with the lord your god and pray for my hand to be restored, then the man of god He interceded with the lord and the king's hand was restored and was as it was before the king said to the man of god, come home with me to eat and I will give you a gift.
But the man of god answered the king, even if you gave me half of your goods, I would not go with you nor eat bread nor drink water here because it was ordered to me by the word of the lord that you should not eat bread or drink. water or return the way he came, so he took another path and did not return the way he had come to Bethel. Now there was a certain old prophet living at Bethel whose sons came and told him all that the man of God had done there. That day they also told their father what they had told the king, their father asked them which path he had taken and his sons showed him which path the man of god of Judah had taken, then he told his sons to saddle my donkey. and When they saddled the donkey, he mounted it and rode after the man of God, he found him sitting under an oak tree and asked him: Are you the man of God who came from Judah?
I am. He answered, then the prophet said to him: come home. with me and eat the man of god said I cannot return and go with you nor can I eat bread or drink water with you in this place the word of the Lord has told me you must not eat bread or drink water there or return the way you came the old prophet He answered, I am also a prophet like you and an angel told me by the word of the Lord, bring him with you to your house so that he may eat bread and drink water, but he was lying to him, so the man of God returned to him and ate and drank in his house while they were sitting around. the table the word of the lord came to the old prophet who had brought him back he cried out to the man of god who had him you come from judah this is what the lord says you have defied the word of the lord and have not kept the command that the lord your God gave you to return and eat bread and drink water in the place where he told you not to eat or drink.
Therefore, your body will not be buried in the tomb of your ancestors. When the man of God finished eating and drinking, the prophet who had brought him back saddled his donkey while he was walking along the road, a lion found him on the road and killed him. He and his body were left lying on the road with the donkey and the lion standing next to them. Some people passing by saw the body lying there with the lion standing next to the body and they went and reported it to the city where the old prophet was. he lived when the prophet who had brought him back from his journey found out he said that he is the man of god who defied the word of the lord the lord has handed him over to the lion who mauled him and killed him as the word of the lord had warned him The prophet told his sons to saddle the donkey for me and they did so, then he went out and found the body lying on the road with the donkey and the lion standing next to it, the lion had not eaten the body or mutilated it. the donkey then the prophet took the body of the man of god he put it on the donkey and brought it back to his own city to mourn for him and bury him then he put the body in his own grave and they mourned for him and they said oh my brother After burying him, he told his children when he dies, bury me in the tomb where the man of God is buried, put my bones next to his bones for the message that he declared by the word of the Lord against the altar in Bethel and against all the sanctuaries in The high places in the cities of Samaria certainly became a reality even after this Jeroboam did not change his evil ways but once again appointed priests for the high places from among all kinds of people and anyone who wanted to be a priest he consecrated for the high places. high places this was the sin of the house of Jeroboam that led to its fall and destruction at that time Abijah son of Jeroboam became ill and Jeroboam said to his wife go disguise yourself so that they do not recognize you as Jeroboam's wife then go to silo elijah the prophet is there the one who told me that I would be king over this people take ten loaves with you some cakes and a job darling and go with him he will tell you what will happen to the boy, so jeroboam's wife did what he said and went to a daughter's house in shiloh now a daughter could not see that she had lost her sight due to her age, but the lord had told the daughter jeroboam's wife is coming to ask you about her son because he is sick and you must give her this or that answer when she arrives, she will pretend to be someone else, so when a daughter heard the sound of her footsteps at the door, she said: come in, wife of jeroboam, why have they sent me this simulation ? to you with bad news go and tell Jeroboam that this is what the Lord the god of Israel says I raised you up from among the people and appointed you ruler over my people Israel I tore the kingdom from the house of David and gave it to you but You have not been like my servant David who kept my commandments and followed me with all his heart doing only what was right in my eyes, you have done more evil than all those who lived before you, you have made other gods for yourself, idols of metal.
You have awakened my anger, throw me behind your back for this I am going to bring disaster to the house of Gerald Boyne I will cut off from Jeroboam every last male in Israel slave or free I will burn the house of Jeroboam as it burns dumb until everything is over the dogs They will eat those of Jeroboam who die in the city andnext spring the king of aram will attack you again meanwhile the officials of the king of aram advised him that their gods are gods of the hills that's why they were too strong for us but if we fight them on the plane we will surely be stronger than them this remove all the kings from their commands and replace them With other officers you must also form an army like the one you lost horse for horse and chariot for chariot so that we can fight against Israel on the plains, then we will surely be stronger than them.
He agreed with them and acted accordingly the next spring he met Bin Haddad. the Arameans and went up to ethic to fight against Israel when the Israelites were also gathered and given provisions, they marched to meet them, the Israelites camped in front of them like two small flocks of goats while the Arameans covered the field, the man of god He approached and said to the king of Israel, this is what the Lord says, because the Arameans think that the Lord is a god of the hills and not a god of the valleys. I will deliver this vast army into your hands and you will know that I am the Lord. seven days they cannot confront each other and on the seventh day the battle was joined the Israelites inflicted one hundred thousand casualties on the Aramean infantry soldiers in one day the rest escaped to the city of Afic where the wall collapsed on 27,000 of them and ben Haddad fled to the city and hid in an inner room.
His officials said to him: Look, we have heard that the kings of the house of Israel are merciful, let us go to the king of Israel with sackcloth around the waist and ropes around the waist. heads may spare your life wearing sackcloth around their waists and ropes around their heads they went to the king of israel and said that your servant ben had said please let me live the king replied if he is still alive he is an old ally that men They took this is a good sign and they were quick to accept his word, yes, your old ally, ben, died, they said, go find him, said the king, when ben haddad came out, ahab made him get into his chariot, I will return the cities that my father took.
From your father, bin Haddad offered you to establish your own market areas in Damascus like my father did in Samaria. Ahab said that on the basis of a treaty, I will set you free, so he made a treaty with him and let him go according to the word of the lord. One of the prophet's company said to his companion, hit me with your weapon but he He denied then the prophet said because you have not obeyed the Lord as soon as you leave me a lion will kill you and after the man left a The lion found him and killed him.
The prophet found another man and said: hit me, please. Then the man hit him and injured him. Then the prophet went and stood by the road waiting for the king. He disguised himself with his diadem over his eyes as the king. The prophet passed by and called him, your servant, he entered into the heat of battle and someone came to me with a captive and said, guard this man, if he is missing, it will be your life for his life or you will have to pay a talent of silver while your servant was busy here and there the man disappeared that is your sentence the king of Israel said that you have pronounced it yourself then the prophet quickly removed the diadem from his eyes and the king of Israel recognized him as one of the prophets to whom the king said this is what the lord says you have freed a man that i had decided should die therefore it is your life for his life your people for his people sullen and angry the king of israel went to his palace in samaria some time later there was an incident which involved a vineyard belonging to Nabath the Jezreelite the vineyard was in Jezreel near Ahab's palace king of Samaria Ahab said to the neighbor let me have your vineyard to use as a garden since it is near my palace in return I will If I give you a vineyard or better people, I will pay you what it is worth, but Naboth replied that the Lord forbids me to give you the inheritance of my ancestors, so Ahab went home soft and angry because the neighbor the Jezreelite had said I will not give you the inheritance of my ancestors ​​He lay down on his bed soaked and refused to eat, his wife Jezebel came in and asked him why are you so solid, why don't you eat, he replied because I told the Jesuit's neighbor, sell me your vineyard or if you prefer, I will give you another vineyard in this place but he said I will not give you my vignette Jezebel said his wife is this how you act as king over Israel get up and eat encouragement above, I will get you the vineyard of Nabat Jezreelite, so she wrote letters in the name of Ahab, he put his seal on them and she sent them to the elders and nobles who lived in the city of Naboth with him, in those letters she wrote to proclaim a day of fast and Sit Nabath in a prominent place among the people, but look for two scoundrels in front of him and make Let them bring charges that he has cursed both God and the king, then take him out and stone him to death so that the elders and nobles who lived in the city of Naboth would do the same.
Jezebel directed in the letters she had written to them, they proclaimed a fast and sat on the back of their heads in a prominent place among the people, then two scoundrels came and sat before him and brought charges against Naboth before the people saying that Naboth had cursed both to God and to the king. They took him outside the city and stoned him to death, then they sent a message to Jezebel. Nabith had been stoned to death. As soon as Jezebel heard that Nabeth had been stoned to death, he said to Ahab, arise and take possession of a vineyard of Nabath.
Jezreelite who refused to sell you is no longer alive but dead when Ahab heard that Nabit had died he got up and went down to take possession of Nathan's vineyard then the word of the Lord came to Elijah the Tishbite goes down to meet King Ahab of Israel who rules in Samaria is now in the vineyard of Naboth where he has gone to take possession of it tell him this is what the lord says you have not murdered a man and taken his property so tell him this is what the lord says in the place where the dogs licked the blood of nabath the dogs will lick your blood yes yours ahab said to Elijah then you have found me my enemy I have found you he replied because you have sold yourself to do evil in the eyes of the lord he says I am going to bring you disaster, I will exterminate your descendants and I will cut off from Ahab every last male of Israel, a slave, all free.
I will make your house like that of Jeroboam son of Nebak and that of Beisha son of Elijah, because you have awakened. my wrath and have made Israel sin and also regarding Jezebel the Lord says that the dogs will devour Jezebel by the wall of Jezreel the dogs will eat those of Ahab who die in the city and the birds will feed on those who die in In the countryside, there was never anyone like Acab who sold himself to do evil in the eyes of the Lord, incited by Jezebel. His wife behaved in the most vile way by going after idols like the Amorites whom the law expelled before Israel.
When Acab heard these words. He tore his clothes He put on sackcloth and fasted He lay down in sackcloth and walked meekly Then the word of the Lord came to Elijah the Tishbite Have you noticed how Ahab has humbled himself before me because he has humbled himself? I will not bring this disaster in his day but I will bring it upon his house there will be no war between Aram and Israel but in the third year Jehoshaphat king of Judah came down to see the king of Israel the king of Israel had said to his officials don't you know that rhema of gilead?
It belongs to us and yet we are not doing anything to take it back from the king of Aram so he asked Jehoshaphat if you will go with me to fight against Raymond Gilead. Jehoshaphat answered the king of Israel I am like you you are my people like your people my horses like your horses, but Jehoshaphat also said to the king of Israel, first seek the counsel of the Lord, then the king of Israel gathered the prophets about four hundred men and asked them: Will I go to war against Rhema Gilead or will I be free?
He answered that the Lord will deliver him into the hands of the king but Jehoshaphat asked. Is there no longer a prophet of the Lord here who we can consult with the king of Israel? Jehoshaphat answered. There is still one through whom we can consult the Lord but I hate him because he never prophesies anything good. about me but always bad here is makaya the son of himmler the king should not say such a thing jehoshaphat responded then the king of israel called one of his officials and told him to bring makaya son of imla immediately dressed in his royal robes The king of Israel and Jehoshaphat king of Judah were sitting on their thrones on the threshing floor at the entrance to the gate of Samaria with all the prophets prophesying before them now Zedekiah the son of Kinayunah had made horns of iron and declared that this is what The Lord says with these you will go to the Arameans until they are destroyed all the other prophets were prophesying the same attack Ramoth Gilead and emerge victorious they said because the Lord will deliver him into the hands of the king the messenger who had gone to call Michael said to him look the other prophets without exception are predicting success for the king may his word agree with theirs and speak favorably but michael said as sure as the lord lives I can only tell you what the lord tells me when the king arrived asked mikhail should we go to war against raymond gillian or not attack and we will be victorious he answered because the lord will deliver him into the hands of the king the king told him how many times must I make you swear that you will not tell me anything but the truth in the name of the lord then McCain replied I saw all of Israel scattered on the hills like a sheikh without a shepherd and the lord said these people have no master let everyone go home in peace the king of Israel said to Jehoshaphat didn't I tell you that he never prophesies? nothing good in me, but only bad, michael continued, therefore, listen to the word of the lord.
I saw the lord sitting on his throne with all the army of heaven standing on the right of him and on the left of him and the lord said: who will attract Ahab to attack? raymond gilead and going to his death there one suggested this and another that finally a spirit came forward, stood before the lord and said: I will tempt him by the means that the lord asked: I will come out and be a lying spirit in the mouth of all his prophets He said that you will succeed in tempting him, the Lord said, go and do it, so now the Lord has put a lying spirit in the mouths of all these prophets of yours, the Lord has decreed disaster for you, so Zedekiah son of Kinayunah went up and slapped McCabe in the face. where did the spirit of the lord go when he passed from me to talk to you he asked michael he replied you will know the day you will hide in an inner room the king of israel then ordered to take mccabe and send him back to ammon the ruler of the city, and joash, the king's son, and tell him this is what the king says, put this guy in prison and give him nothing but bread and water until he returns safely, declared, if you ever come back safe and sound, the Lord has not spoken to you through me, then he added, mark my words, all of you, then the king of Israel and Jehoshaphat, king of Judah, went up to Ramet Gilead, the king of Israel said to Jehoshaphat, I will enter the battle in disguise, but you wear your royal robes so that the The king of Israel disguised himself and went into battle now that the king of Aram had ordered his 32 chariot commanders not to fight with anyone, small or big, except the king of Israel, when the chariot commanders saw Jehoshaphat they thought that surely this is the king of Israel, so they turned to attack him but when Jehoshaphat shouted the chariot commanders saw that it was not the king of Israel and they left to chase him but someone drew his bow at random and struck the king of Israel between the breastplate and the scale armor the king said to his chariot The driver circled all day the battle broke out and the king was propped up in his chariot In front of the Arameans, the blood from his wound ran on the floor of the chariot and that night he died while the sun was setting.
A cry spread throughout the army to his own people, everyone to his own land. Thus the king died and was taken to Samaria and there they buried him they washed the chariot in a pond in samaria where the prostitutes did and the dogs licked his blood as the word of the lord had declared Regarding the other events of Ahab's reign, including everything he did, the palace he built and inlaid with ivory and the cities he fortified, are they not written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Israel? Ahab rested with his ancestors and Ahushah his son succeeded him.
He as king Jehoshaphat son of Asa became king of Judah in the fourth year of Ahab king of Israel Jehoshaphat was 35 years old when he began to reign and he reigned in Jerusalem for 25 years his mother's name was Azuba daughter of Shilhai in everything he followed the asa's father's ways and did not deviate from them he did what was right in the sight of the lord the high places however were not removed and the people continued offering sacrifices and burning incense there jehoshaphat was also at peace with the king of israel as because the Other events of the reign of Jehoshaphat, the things he achieved and his military exploits, are not written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Judah, he freed from the land the rest of the sanctuary prostitutes who remained there even after the reign of His father Asa then there was no king in Edom a provincial governor ruled now Jehoshaphat built a fleet of merchant ships to go and offer gold but they never set sail they were shipwrecked at ease and the guardian at that time Ahuziah son of Ahab told Jehoshaphat let my men sail with yours but Jehoshaphat refused so Jehoshaphat restedwith his ancestors and was buried with them in the city of David his father and Jehora his son succeeded him as king.
A hosa son of Ahab became king of Israel in Samaria in the 17th year of Jehoshaphat king of Judah and reigned over Israel for two years. He did evil in the sight of the Lord because he followed the ways of his father and mother and Jeroboam son of Nepad called Israel to sin served and worshiped Baal and aroused the wrath of the Lord the god of Israel just as his father had done to you
