Chapter 18

  1. 1. Now Jehoshaphat
    H3092
    had riches
    H6239
    and honour
    H3519
    in abundance,
    H7230
    and joined affinity
    H2859
    with Ahab.
    H256
  2. 2. And after
    H7093
    certain years
    H8141
    he went down
    H3381
    to Ahab
    H256
    to Samaria.
    H8111
    And Ahab
    H256
    killed
    H2076
    sheep
    H6629
    and oxen
    H1241
    for him in abundance,
    H7230
    and for the people
    H5971
    that he had with him, and persuaded
    H5496
    him to go up
    H5927
    with him to Ramothgilead.
    H1568
    H7433
  3. 3. And Ahab
    H256
    king
    H4428
    of Israel
    H3478
    said
    H559
    unto Jehoshaphat
    H3092
    king
    H4428
    of Judah,
    H3063
    Wilt thou go
    H3212
    with me to Ramothgilead?
    H1568
    H7433
    And he answered
    H559
    him, I am as thou art, and my people
    H5971
    as thy people;
    H5971
    and we will be with thee in the war.
    H4421
  4. 4. And Jehoshaphat
    H3092
    said
    H559
    unto the king
    H4428
    of Israel,
    H3478
    Enquire,
    H1875
    I pray thee, at the word
    H1697
    of the LORD
    H3068
    to day.
    H3117
  5. 5. Therefore the king
    H4428
    of Israel
    H3478
    gathered together
    H6908
    of prophets
    H5030
    four
    H702
    hundred
    H3967
    men,
    H376
    and said
    H559
    unto them, Shall we go
    H3212
    to Ramothgilead
    H1568
    to
    H7433
    battle,
    H4421
    or shall I forbear?
    H2308
    And they said,
    H559
    Go up;
    H5927
    for God
    H430
    will deliver
    H5414
    it into the king's
    H4428
    hand.
    H3027
  6. 6. But Jehoshaphat
    H3092
    said,
    H559
    Is there not here a prophet
    H5030
    of the LORD
    H3068
    besides, that we might enquire
    H1875
    of him?
  7. 7. And the king
    H4428
    of Israel
    H3478
    said
    H559
    unto Jehoshaphat,
    H3092
    There is yet one
    H259
    man,
    H376
    by whom we may enquire
    H1875
    of the LORD:
    H3068
    but I hate
    H8130
    him; for he never prophesied
    H5012
    good
    H2896
    unto me, but always
    H3117
    evil:
    H7451
    the same is Micaiah
    H4321
    the son
    H1121
    of Imla.
    H3229
    And Jehoshaphat
    H3092
    said,
    H559
    Let not the king
    H4428
    say
    H559
    so.
  8. 8. And the king
    H4428
    of Israel
    H3478
    called
    H7121
    for one
    H259
    of his officers,
    H5631
    and said,
    H559
    Fetch quickly
    H4116
    Micaiah
    H4319
    the son
    H1121
    of Imla.
    H3229
  9. 9. And the king
    H4428
    of Israel
    H3478
    and Jehoshaphat
    H3092
    king
    H4428
    of Judah
    H3063
    sat
    H3427
    either
    H376
    of them on his throne,
    H3678
    clothed
    H3847
    in their robes,
    H899
    and they sat
    H3427
    in a void place
    H1637
    at the entering in
    H6607
    of the gate
    H8179
    of Samaria;
    H8111
    and all the prophets
    H5030
    prophesied
    H5012
    before
    H6440
    them.
  10. 10. And Zedekiah
    H6667
    the son
    H1121
    of Chenaanah
    H3668
    had made
    H6213
    him horns
    H7161
    of iron,
    H1270
    and said,
    H559
    Thus saith
    H559
    the LORD,
    H3068
    With these thou shalt push
    H5055
    Syria
    H758
    until they be consumed.
    H3615
  11. 11. And all the prophets
    H5030
    prophesied
    H5012
    so, saying,
    H559
    Go up
    H5927
    to Ramothgilead,
    H1568
    H7433
    and prosper:
    H6743
    for the LORD
    H3068
    shall deliver
    H5414
    it into the hand
    H3027
    of the king.
    H4428
  12. 12. And the messenger
    H4397
    that went
    H1980
    to call
    H7121
    Micaiah
    H4321
    spake
    H1696
    to him, saying,
    H559
    Behold, the words
    H1697
    of the prophets
    H5030
    declare good
    H2896
    to the king
    H4428
    with one
    H259
    assent;
    H6310
    let thy word
    H1697
    therefore, I pray thee, be like one
    H259
    of theirs, and speak
    H1696
    thou good.
    H2896
  13. 13. And Micaiah
    H4321
    said,
    H559
    As the LORD
    H3068
    liveth,
    H2416
    even what my God
    H430
    saith,
    H559
    that will I speak.
    H1696
  14. 14. And when he was come
    H935
    to the king,
    H4428
    the king
    H4428
    said
    H559
    unto him, Micaiah,
    H4318
    shall we go
    H3212
    to Ramothgilead
    H1568
    to
    H7433
    battle,
    H4421
    or shall I forbear?
    H2308
    And he said,
    H559
    Go ye up,
    H5927
    and prosper,
    H6743
    and they shall be delivered
    H5414
    into your hand.
    H3027
  15. 15. And the king
    H4428
    said
    H559
    to him, How many times
    H6471
    shall I adjure
    H7650
    thee that thou say
    H1696
    nothing but the truth
    H571
    to me in the name
    H8034
    of the LORD?
    H3068
  16. 16. Then he said,
    H559
    I did see
    H7200
    all Israel
    H3478
    scattered
    H6327
    upon the mountains,
    H2022
    as sheep
    H6629
    that have no shepherd:
    H7462
    and the LORD
    H3068
    said,
    H559
    These have no master;
    H113
    let them return
    H7725
    therefore every man
    H376
    to his house
    H1004
    in peace.
    H7965
  17. 17. And the king
    H4428
    of Israel
    H3478
    said
    H559
    to Jehoshaphat,
    H3092
    Did I not tell
    H559
    thee that he would not prophesy
    H5012
    good
    H2896
    unto me, but evil?
    H7451
  18. 18. Again he said,
    H559
    Therefore hear
    H8085
    the word
    H1697
    of the LORD;
    H3068
    I saw
    H7200
    the LORD
    H3068
    sitting
    H3427
    upon his throne,
    H3678
    and all the host
    H6635
    of heaven
    H8064
    standing
    H5975
    on his right hand
    H3225
    and on his left.
    H8040
  19. 19. And the LORD
    H3068
    said,
    H559
    Who shall entice
    H6601
    Ahab
    H256
    king
    H4428
    of Israel,
    H3478
    that he may go up
    H5927
    and fall
    H5307
    at Ramothgilead?
    H1568
    H7433
    And one spake
    H559
    saying
    H559
    after this manner,
    H3602
    and another saying
    H559
    after that manner.
    H3602
  20. 20. Then there came out
    H3318
    a spirit,
    H7307
    and stood
    H5975
    before
    H6440
    the LORD,
    H3068
    and said,
    H559
    I will entice
    H6601
    him. And the LORD
    H3068
    said
    H559
    unto him, Wherewith?
  21. 21. And he said,
    H559
    I will go out,
    H3318
    and be a lying
    H8267
    spirit
    H7307
    in the mouth
    H6310
    of all his prophets.
    H5030
    And the LORD said,
    H559
    Thou shalt entice
    H6601
    him, and thou shalt also prevail:
    H3201
    go out,
    H3318
    and do
    H6213
    even so.
  22. 22. Now therefore, behold, the LORD
    H3068
    hath put
    H5414
    a lying
    H8267
    spirit
    H7307
    in the mouth
    H6310
    of these thy prophets,
    H5030
    and the LORD
    H3068
    hath spoken
    H1696
    evil
    H7451
    against thee.
  23. 23. Then Zedekiah
    H6667
    the son
    H1121
    of Chenaanah
    H3668
    came near,
    H5066
    and smote
    H5221
    Micaiah
    H4321
    upon the cheek,
    H3895
    and said,
    H559
    Which
    H335
    way
    H1870
    went
    H5674
    the Spirit
    H7307
    of the LORD
    H3068
    from me to speak
    H1696
    unto thee?
  24. 24. And Micaiah
    H4321
    said,
    H559
    Behold, thou shalt see
    H7200
    on that day
    H3117
    when thou shalt go
    H935
    into an inner
    H2315
    chamber
    H2315
    to hide
    H2244
    thyself.
  25. 25. Then the king
    H4428
    of Israel
    H3478
    said,
    H559
    Take
    H3947
    ye Micaiah,
    H4321
    and carry him back
    H7725
    to Amon
    H526
    the governor
    H8269
    of the city,
    H5892
    and to Joash
    H3101
    the king's
    H4428
    son;
    H1121
  26. 26. And say,
    H559
    Thus saith
    H559
    the king,
    H4428
    Put
    H7760
    this fellow in the prison,
    H3608
    H1004
    and feed
    H398
    him with bread
    H3899
    of affliction
    H3906
    and with water
    H4325
    of affliction,
    H3906
    until I return
    H7725
    in peace.
    H7965
  27. 27. And Micaiah
    H4321
    said,
    H559
    If thou certainly
    H7725
    return
    H7725
    in peace,
    H7965
    then hath not the LORD
    H3068
    spoken
    H1696
    by me. And he said,
    H559
    Hearken,
    H8085
    all ye people.
    H5971
  28. 28. So the king
    H4428
    of Israel
    H3478
    and Jehoshaphat
    H3092
    the king
    H4428
    of Judah
    H3063
    went up
    H5927
    to Ramothgilead.
    H1568
    H7433
  29. 29. And the king
    H4428
    of Israel
    H3478
    said
    H559
    unto Jehoshaphat,
    H3092
    I will disguise
    H2664
    myself, and will go
    H935
    to the battle;
    H4421
    but put
    H3847
    thou on thy robes.
    H899
    So the king
    H4428
    of Israel
    H3478
    disguised
    H2664
    himself; and they went
    H935
    to the battle.
    H4421
  30. 30. Now the king
    H4428
    of Syria
    H758
    had commanded
    H6680
    the captains
    H8269
    of the chariots
    H7393
    that were with him, saying,
    H559
    Fight
    H3898
    ye not with small
    H6996
    or great,
    H1419
    save only with the king
    H4428
    of Israel.
    H3478
  31. 31. And it came to pass, when the captains
    H8269
    of the chariots
    H7393
    saw
    H7200
    Jehoshaphat,
    H3092
    that they said,
    H559
    It is the king
    H4428
    of Israel.
    H3478
    Therefore they compassed about
    H5437
    him to fight:
    H3898
    but Jehoshaphat
    H3092
    cried out,
    H2199
    and the LORD
    H3068
    helped
    H5826
    him; and God
    H430
    moved
    H5496
    them to depart from him.
  32. 32. For it came to pass, that, when the captains
    H8269
    of the chariots
    H7393
    perceived
    H7200
    that it was not the king
    H4428
    of Israel,
    H3478
    they turned back again
    H7725
    from pursuing
    H310
    him.
  33. 33. And a certain man drew
    H4900
    a bow
    H7198
    at a venture,
    H8537
    and smote
    H5221
    the king
    H4428
    of Israel
    H3478
    between the joints
    H1694
    of the harness:
    H8302
    therefore he said
    H559
    to his chariot
    H7395
    man,
    H376
    Turn
    H2015
    thine hand,
    H3027
    that thou mayest carry me out
    H3318
    of the host;
    H4264
    for I am wounded.
    H2470
  34. 34. And the battle
    H4421
    increased
    H5927
    that day:
    H3117
    howbeit the king
    H4428
    of Israel
    H3478
    stayed himself up
    H5975
    in his chariot
    H4818
    against
    H5227
    the Syrians
    H758
    until the even:
    H6153
    and about the time
    H6256
    of the sun
    H8121
    going down
    H935
    he died.
