Second Kings
From the Original 1599 Geneva Bible Notes

 

2Ki 1:1

1:1 Then Moab rebelled against Israel after the death of Ahab.

The Argument - This second book contains the acts of the kings of Judah and Israel: that is, of Israel, from the death of Ahab to the last king Hoshea, who was imprisoned by the king of Assyria, and his city Samaria taken, and the ten tribes led into captivity by the just plague of God for their idolatry and disobedience to God. Also of Judah, from the reign of Jehoram son of Jehoshaphat to Zedekiah, who for contemning the Lord's commandment by his prophets, and neglecting his many admonitions by famine and other means was taken by his enemies, saw his sons most cruelly slain before his face, and his own eyes put out, as the Lord had declared to him before by his prophet Jeremiah. By the just vengeance of God for contempt of his word Jerusalem was destroyed, the temple burnt, and he and all his people were led away captives into Babylon. In this book are notable examples of God's favour toward those rulers and people who obey his prophets, and embrace his word: and contrariwise of his plagues on those who neglect his ministers, and do not obey his commandments.

2Ki 1:2

1:2 And {a} Ahaziah fell down through a lattice in his upper chamber that [was] in Samaria, and was sick: and he sent messengers, and said unto them, Go, enquire of {b} Baalzebub the god of Ekron whether I shall recover of this disease.

2Ki 1:3

1:3 But the angel of the LORD said to Elijah the Tishbite, Arise, go up to meet the messengers of the king of Samaria, and say unto them, {c} [Is it] not because [there is] not a God in Israel, [that] ye go to enquire of Baalzebub the god of Ekron?

2Ki 1:6

1:6 And they said unto him, There came a man up to meet us, and said unto us, Go, turn again unto the king that sent you, and say unto him, Thus saith the LORD, {d} [Is it] not because [there is] not a God in Israel, [that] thou sendest to enquire of Baalzebub the god of Ekron? therefore thou shalt not come down from that bed on which thou art gone up, but shalt surely die.

2Ki 1:8

1:8 And they answered him, [He was] an {e} hairy man, and girt with a girdle of leather about his loins. And he said, It [is] Elijah the Tishbite.

2Ki 1:9

1:9 Then the king sent unto him a captain of fifty with his fifty. And he went up to him: and, behold, he sat on the top {f} of an hill. And he spake unto him, Thou man of God, the king hath said, Come down.

2Ki 1:10

1:10 And Elijah answered and said to the captain of fifty, If I [be] a man of God, then let fire come down from heaven, and consume thee and thy fifty. {g} And there came down fire from heaven, and consumed him and his fifty.

2Ki 1:11

1:11 Again also he sent unto him another captain of fifty with his fifty. And he answered and said unto him, {h} O man of God, thus hath the king said, Come down quickly.

2Ki 1:12

1:12 And Elijah answered and said unto them, {i} If I [be] a man of God, let fire come down from heaven, and consume thee and thy fifty. And the fire of God came down from heaven, and consumed him and his fifty.

2Ki 1:13

1:13 And he sent again a captain of the third fifty with his fifty. And the third captain of fifty went up, and came and fell on his knees before Elijah, and besought him, and said unto him, O man of God, I pray thee, let my {k} life, and the life of these fifty thy servants, be {l} precious in thy sight.

2Ki 1:15

1:15 And the angel of the LORD said unto Elijah, Go down with him: be {m} not afraid of him. And he arose, and went down with him unto the king.

2Ki 1:17

1:17 So he died according to the word of the LORD which Elijah had spoken. And {n} Jehoram reigned in his stead in the second year of Jehoram the son of Jehoshaphat king of Judah; because he had no son.

2Ki 2:1

2:1 And it came to pass, when the LORD would take up Elijah into heaven by a whirlwind, that Elijah went with Elisha from {a} Gilgal.

2Ki 2:3

2:3 And the {b} sons of the prophets that [were] at Bethel came forth to Elisha, and said unto him, Knowest thou that the LORD will take away thy master from {c} thy head to day? And he said, Yea, I {d} know [it]; hold ye your peace.

2Ki 2:5

2:5 And the sons of the prophets that [were] at {e} Jericho came to Elisha, and said unto him, Knowest thou that the LORD will take away thy master from thy head to day? And he answered, Yea, I know [it]; hold ye your peace.

2Ki 2:8

2:8 And Elijah took his mantle, and wrapped [it] together, and smote the {f} waters, and they were divided hither and thither, so that they two went over on dry ground.

2Ki 2:9

2:9 And it came to pass, when they were gone over, that Elijah said unto Elisha, Ask what I shall do for thee, before I be taken away from thee. And Elisha said, I pray thee, {g} let a double portion of thy spirit be upon me.

2Ki 2:11

2:11 And it came to pass, as they still went on, and talked, that, behold, [there appeared] a chariot of fire, and horses of fire, and parted them both asunder; and Elijah went up by a whirlwind into {h} heaven.

2Ki 2:15

2:15 And when the sons of the prophets which [were] to view at Jericho saw him, they said, The {i} spirit of Elijah doth rest on Elisha. And they came to meet him, and bowed themselves to the ground before him.

2Ki 2:16

2:16 And they said unto him, Behold now, there be with thy servants fifty strong men; let them go, we pray thee, and seek thy master: lest peradventure the Spirit of the LORD hath taken him up, and cast him upon some mountain, or into some valley. And he said, {l} Ye shall not send.

2Ki 2:21

2:21 And he went forth unto the spring of the waters, and cast {m} the salt in there, and said, Thus saith the LORD, I have healed these waters; there shall not be from thence any more death or barren [land].

2Ki 2:24

2:24 And he turned back, and looked on them, and {n} cursed them in the name of the LORD. And there came forth two she bears out of the wood, and tare forty and two children of them.

2Ki 3:1

3:1 Now Jehoram the son of Ahab began to reign over Israel in Samaria the {a} eighteenth year of Jehoshaphat king of Judah, and reigned twelve years.

2Ki 3:3

3:3 Nevertheless he cleaved unto the {b} sins of Jeroboam the son of Nebat, which made Israel to sin; he departed not therefrom.

2Ki 3:4

3:4 And {c} Mesha king of Moab was a sheepmaster, and rendered unto the king of Israel an hundred thousand lambs, and an hundred thousand rams, with the wool.

2Ki 3:7

3:7 And he went and sent to Jehoshaphat the king of Judah, saying, The king of Moab hath rebelled against me: wilt thou go with me against Moab to battle? And he said, I will go up: {d} I [am] as thou [art], my people as thy people, [and] my horses as thy horses.

2Ki 3:9

3:9 So the king of Israel went, and the king of Judah, and the {e} king of Edom: and they fetched a compass of seven days' journey: and there was no water for the host, and for the cattle that followed them.

2Ki 3:11

3:11 But Jehoshaphat said, [Is there] not here a prophet of the LORD, that we may enquire of the LORD by him? And one of the king of Israel's servants answered and said, Here [is] Elisha the son of Shaphat, which {f} poured water on the hands of Elijah.

2Ki 3:12

3:12 And Jehoshaphat said, {g} The word of the LORD is with him. So the king of Israel and Jehoshaphat and the king of Edom went down to him.

2Ki 3:13

3:13 And Elisha said unto the king of Israel, {h} What have I to do with thee? get thee to the prophets of thy father, and to the prophets of thy mother. And the king of Israel said unto him, {i} Nay: for the LORD hath called these three kings together, to deliver them into the hand of Moab.

2Ki 3:14

3:14 And Elisha said, [As] the LORD of hosts liveth, before whom I stand, surely, were it not that I regard the presence of Jehoshaphat the king of Judah, I would {k} not look toward thee, nor see thee.

2Ki 3:15

3:15 But now bring me a minstrel. And it came to pass, when the minstrel {l} played, that the hand of the LORD came upon him.

2Ki 3:18

3:18 And this is [but] a {m} light thing in the sight of the LORD: he will deliver the Moabites also into your hand.

2Ki 3:19

3:19 And ye shall smite every fenced city, and every choice city, and shall fell every good tree, and stop all wells of water, and {n} mar every good piece of land with stones.

2Ki 3:23

3:23 And they said, {o} This [is] blood: the kings are surely slain, and they have smitten one another: now therefore, Moab, to the spoil.

2Ki 3:24

3:24 And when they came to the camp of Israel, the Israelites rose up and smote the Moabites, so that they fled before them: but they {p} went forward smiting the Moabites, even in [their] country.

2Ki 3:25

3:25 And they beat down the cities, and on every good piece of land cast every man his stone, and filled it; and they stopped all the wells of water, and felled all the good trees: only in {q} Kirharaseth left they the stones thereof; howbeit the slingers went about [it], and smote it.

2Ki 3:27

3:27 Then he took his eldest son that should have reigned in his stead, and {r} offered him [for] a burnt offering upon the wall. And there was great indignation against Israel: and they departed from him, and returned to [their own] land.

2Ki 4:1

4:1 {a} Now there cried a certain woman of the wives of the sons of the prophets unto Elisha, saying, Thy servant my husband is dead; and thou knowest that thy servant did {b} fear the LORD: and the creditor is come to take unto him my two sons to be {c} bondmen.

2Ki 4:2

4:2 And Elisha said unto her, What shall I do for thee? tell me, what hast thou in the house? And she said, Thine handmaid hath not any thing in the house, save a {d} pot of oil.

2Ki 4:4

4:4 And when thou art come in, thou shalt shut the door upon thee and upon thy sons, and shalt pour out into {e} all those vessels, and thou shalt set aside that which is full.

2Ki 4:6

4:6 And it came to pass, when the vessels were full, that she said unto her son, Bring me yet a vessel. And he said unto her, [There is] not a vessel more. And the oil {f} stayed.

2Ki 4:7

4:7 Then she came and told the man of God. And he said, Go, sell the oil, and pay thy debt, and live thou and thy children of the {g} rest.

2Ki 4:10

4:10 Let us make a {h} little chamber, I pray thee, on the wall; and let us set for him there a bed, and a table, and a stool, and a candlestick: and it shall be, when he cometh to us, that he shall turn in thither.

2Ki 4:13

4:13 And he said unto him, Say now unto her, Behold, thou hast been careful for us with all this care; {i} what [is] to be done for thee? wouldest thou be spoken for to the king, or to the captain of the host? And she answered, I {k} dwell among mine own people.

2Ki 4:14

4:14 And he said, What then [is] to be done for her? And Gehazi answered, Verily she hath {l} no child, and her husband is old.

2Ki 4:19

4:19 And he said unto his father, {m} My head, my head. And he said to a lad, Carry him to his mother.

2Ki 4:23

4:23 And he said, Wherefore wilt thou go to him to day? [it is] neither {n} new moon, nor sabbath. And she said, [It shall be] well.

2Ki 4:27

4:27 And when she came to the man of God to the hill, she {o} caught him by the feet: but Gehazi came near to thrust her away. And the man of God said, Let her alone; for her soul [is] vexed within her: and the LORD hath hid [it] from me, and hath not told me.

2Ki 4:29

4:29 Then he said to Gehazi, Gird up thy loins, and take my staff in thine hand, and go thy way: {p} if thou meet any man, salute him not; and if any salute thee, answer him not again: and lay my staff upon the face of the child.

2Ki 4:34

4:34 And he went up, and {q} lay upon the child, and put his mouth upon his mouth, and his eyes upon his eyes, and his hands upon his hands: and he stretched himself upon the child; and the flesh of the child waxed warm.

2Ki 4:35

4:35 Then he returned, and walked in the house to and fro; and went up, and stretched himself upon him: and the child sneezed {r} seven times, and the child opened his eyes.

2Ki 4:38

4:38 And Elisha came again to Gilgal: and [there was] a dearth in the {s} land; and the sons of the prophets [were] sitting before him: and he said unto his servant, Set on the great pot, and seethe pottage for the sons of the prophets.

2Ki 4:39

4:39 And one went out into the field to gather herbs, and found a {t} wild vine, and gathered thereof wild gourds his lap full, and came and shred [them] into the pot of pottage: for they knew [them] not.

2Ki 4:40

4:40 So they poured out for the men to eat. And it came to pass, as they were eating of the pottage, that they cried out, and said, O [thou] man of God, [there is] {u} death in the pot. And they could not eat [thereof].

2Ki 4:43

4:43 And his servitor said, What, should I set this before an hundred men? He said again, Give the people, that they may eat: for thus saith the LORD, They shall eat, and {x} shall leave [thereof].

2Ki 5:1

5:1 Now Naaman, captain of the host of the king of Syria, was a great man with his master, and honourable, because by him the LORD had given {a} deliverance unto Syria: he was also a mighty man in valour, [but he was] a leper.

2Ki 5:3

5:3 And she said unto her mistress, Would God my lord [were] with the {b} prophet that [is] in Samaria! for he would recover him of his leprosy.

2Ki 5:4

5:4 And {c} [one] went in, and told his lord, saying, Thus and thus said the maid that [is] of the land of Israel.

2Ki 5:5

5:5 And the king of Syria said, Go to, go, and I will send a letter unto the king of Israel. And he departed, and {d} took with him ten talents of silver, and six thousand [pieces] of gold, and ten changes of raiment.

2Ki 5:8

5:8 And it was [so], when Elisha the man of God had heard that the king of Israel had rent his clothes, that he sent to the king, saying, {e} Wherefore hast thou rent thy clothes? let him come now to me, and he shall know that there is a prophet in Israel.

2Ki 5:11

5:11 But Naaman was {f} wroth, and went away, and said, Behold, I thought, He will surely come out to me, and stand, and call on the name of the LORD his God, and strike his hand over the place, and recover the leper.

2Ki 5:13

5:13 And his servants came near, and spake unto him, and said, {g} My father, [if] the prophet had bid thee [do some] great thing, wouldest thou not have done [it]? how much rather then, when he saith to thee, Wash, and be clean?

2Ki 5:16

5:16 But he said, [As] the LORD liveth, before whom I stand, I will receive none. And he urged him to take [it]; {h} but he refused.

2Ki 5:18

5:18 In this thing the LORD {i} pardon thy servant, [that] when my master goeth into the house of Rimmon to worship there, and he leaneth on my hand, and I bow myself in the house of Rimmon: when I bow down myself in the house of Rimmon, the LORD pardon thy servant in this thing.

2Ki 5:19

5:19 And he said unto him, {k} Go in peace. So he departed from him a little way.

2Ki 5:21

5:21 So Gehazi followed after Naaman. And when Naaman saw [him] running after him, {l} he lighted down from the chariot to meet him, and said, [Is] all well?

2Ki 5:24

5:24 And when he came to the tower, he took [them] from their hand, and bestowed [them] in the house: and he let the men go, and {m} they departed.

2Ki 5:26

5:26 And he said unto him, {n} Went not mine heart [with thee], when the man turned again from his chariot to meet thee? [Is it] a time to receive money, and to receive garments, and {o} oliveyards, and vineyards, and sheep, and oxen, and menservants, and maidservants?

2Ki 5:27

5:27 The leprosy therefore of Naaman shall cleave unto thee, and unto thy {p} seed for ever. And he went out from his presence a leper [as white] as snow.

2Ki 6:2

6:2 Let us go, we pray thee, unto Jordan, and take thence every man a {a} beam, and let us make us a place there, where we may dwell. And he answered, Go ye.

2Ki 6:6

6:6 And the man of God said, Where fell it? And he shewed him the place. And he cut down a stick, and cast [it] in thither; and the iron did {b} swim.

2Ki 6:8

6:8 Then the king of Syria warred against Israel, and took counsel with his servants, saying, In {c} such and such a place [shall be] my camp.

2Ki 6:10

6:10 And the king of Israel sent to the place which the man of God told him and warned him of, and {d} saved himself there, not once nor twice.

2Ki 6:12

6:12 And one of his servants said, None, my lord, O king: but Elisha, the prophet that [is] in Israel, telleth the king of Israel the words that thou speakest in thy {e} bedchamber.

2Ki 6:14

6:14 Therefore sent he thither horses, and chariots, and a {f} great host: and they came by night, and compassed the city about.

2Ki 6:16

6:16 And he answered, {g} Fear not: for they that [be] with us [are] more than they that [be] with them.

2Ki 6:17

6:17 And Elisha prayed, and said, LORD, I pray thee, open his eyes, {h} that he may see. And the LORD opened the eyes of the young man; and he saw: and, behold, the mountain [was] full of horses and chariots of fire round about Elisha.

2Ki 6:18

6:18 And when {i} they came down to him, Elisha prayed unto the LORD, and said, Smite this people, I pray thee, with blindness. And he smote them with blindness according to the word of Elisha.

2Ki 6:19

6:19 And Elisha said unto them, This [is] not the way, neither [is] this the city: follow me, and I will bring you to the man whom ye seek. But he led {k} them to Samaria.

2Ki 6:21

6:21 And the king of Israel said unto Elisha, when he saw them, {l} My father, shall I smite [them]? shall I smite [them]?

2Ki 6:23

6:23 And he prepared great provision for them: and when they had eaten and drunk, he sent them away, and they went to their master. So the bands of Syria came no {m} more into the land of Israel.

2Ki 6:25

6:25 And there was a great famine in Samaria: and, behold, they besieged it, until an ass's head was [sold] for fourscore [pieces] of silver, and the fourth part of a cab of dove's {n} dung for five [pieces] of silver.

2Ki 6:27

6:27 And he said, If the LORD do not help thee, whence shall I help thee? out of the {o} barnfloor, or out of the winepress?

2Ki 6:30

6:30 And it came to pass, when the king heard the words of the woman, that he rent his clothes; and he passed by upon the wall, and the people looked, and, behold, [he had] sackcloth within {p} upon his flesh.

2Ki 6:32

6:32 But Elisha sat in his house, and the elders sat with him; and [the king] sent a man from before him: but ere the messenger came to him, he said to the elders, See ye how this son of a {q} murderer hath sent to take away mine head? look, when the messenger cometh, shut the door, and hold him fast at the door: [is] not the sound of his master's feet behind him?

2Ki 6:33

6:33 And while he yet talked with them, behold, the messenger came down unto him: and he said, Behold, this evil [is] of the LORD; what {r} should I wait for the LORD any longer?

2Ki 7:1

7:1 Then Elisha said, Hear ye the word of the LORD; Thus saith the LORD, {a} To morrow about this time [shall] a measure of fine flour [be sold] for a shekel, and two measures of barley for a shekel, in the gate of Samaria.

2Ki 7:2

7:2 Then a lord on whose hand the king {b} leaned answered the man of God, and said, Behold, [if] the LORD would make {c} windows in heaven, might this thing be? And he said, Behold, thou shalt see [it] with thine eyes, but shalt not {d} eat thereof.

2Ki 7:3

7:3 And there were four leprous men at the {e} entering in of the gate: and they said one to another, Why sit we here until we die?

2Ki 7:6

7:6 For the Lord had made the host of the Syrians to hear a {f} noise of chariots, and a noise of horses, [even] the noise of a great host: and they said one to another, Lo, the king of Israel hath hired against us the kings of the Hittites, and the kings of the Egyptians, to come upon us.

2Ki 7:7

7:7 Wherefore they arose and fled in the twilight, and left their tents, and their horses, and their asses, even the camp as it [was], and {g} fled for their life.

2Ki 7:12

7:12 And the king arose in the night, and said unto his servants, {h} I will now shew you what the Syrians have done to us. They know that we [be] hungry; therefore are they gone out of the camp to hide themselves in the field, saying, When they come out of the city, we shall catch them alive, and get into the city.

2Ki 7:13

7:13 And one of his servants answered and said, Let [some] take, I pray thee, five of the horses that remain, which are left in the city, (behold, they [are] as all the {i} multitude of Israel that are left in it: behold, [I say], they [are] even as all the multitude of the Israelites that are consumed:) and let us send and see.

2Ki 7:16

7:16 And the people went out, and spoiled the tents of the Syrians. So a measure of fine flour was [sold] for a shekel, and two measures of barley for a shekel, {k} according to the word of the LORD.

2Ki 7:17

7:17 And the king appointed the lord on whose hand he leaned to have the charge of the gate: and the people {l} trode upon him in the gate, and he died, as the man of God had said, who spake when the king came down to him.

2Ki 8:1

8:1 Then spake Elisha unto the woman, whose son he had restored to life, saying, Arise, and go thou and thine household, and sojourn wheresoever thou {a} canst sojourn: for the LORD hath called for a famine; and it shall also come upon the land seven years.

2Ki 8:3

8:3 And it came to pass at the seven years' end, that the woman returned out of the land of the Philistines: and she went forth {b} to cry unto the king for her house and for her land.

2Ki 8:5

8:5 And it came to pass, as he was telling {c} the king how he had restored a dead body to life, that, behold, the woman, whose son he had restored to life, cried to the king for her house and for her land. And Gehazi said, My lord, O king, this [is] the woman, and this [is] her son, whom Elisha restored to life.

2Ki 8:6

8:6 And when the king asked the woman, she told him. So the king appointed unto her a certain officer, saying, Restore all that [was] hers, and all the {d} fruits of the field since the day that she left the land, even until now.

2Ki 8:9

8:9 So Hazael went to meet him, and took a present with him, even of every {e} good thing of Damascus, forty camels' burden, and came and stood before him, and said, Thy son Benhadad king of Syria hath sent me to thee, saying, Shall I recover of this disease?

2Ki 8:10

8:10 And Elisha said unto him, Go, say unto him, Thou mayest certainly {f} recover: howbeit the LORD hath shewed me that he shall surely die.

2Ki 8:13

8:13 And Hazael said, But what, [is] thy servant {g} a dog, that he should do this great thing? And Elisha answered, The LORD hath shewed me that thou [shalt be] king over Syria.

2Ki 8:15

8:15 And it came to pass on the morrow, that he took a thick cloth, and dipped [it] in water, and {h} spread [it] on his face, so that he died: and Hazael reigned in his stead.

2Ki 8:16

8:16 And in the fifth year of Joram the son of Ahab king of Israel, Jehoshaphat [being] then king of Judah, {i} Jehoram the son of Jehoshaphat king of Judah began to reign.

2Ki 8:18

8:18 And he walked in the way of the kings of Israel, as did the house of Ahab: for the {l} daughter of Ahab was his wife: and he did evil in the sight of the LORD.

2Ki 8:20

8:20 In his days Edom {m} revolted from under the hand of Judah, and made a king over themselves.

2Ki 8:22

8:22 Yet Edom revolted from under the hand of Judah unto this day. Then {n} Libnah revolted at the same time.

2Ki 8:26

8:26 {o} Two and twenty years old [was] Ahaziah when he began to reign; and he reigned one year in Jerusalem. And his mother's name [was] Athaliah, the daughter of Omri king of Israel.

2Ki 8:28

8:28 And he went with Joram the son of Ahab to the war against Hazael king of Syria in {p} Ramothgilead; and the Syrians wounded Joram.

2Ki 8:29

8:29 And king Joram went back to be healed in {q} Jezreel of the wounds which the Syrians had given him at Ramah, when he fought against Hazael king of Syria. And Ahaziah the son of Jehoram king of Judah went down to see Joram the son of Ahab in Jezreel, because he was sick.

2Ki 9:1

9:1 And Elisha the prophet called one of the children of the prophets, and said unto him, {a} Gird up thy loins, and take this box of oil in thine hand, and go to Ramothgilead:

2Ki 9:6

9:6 And he arose, and went into the house; and he poured the oil on his head, and said unto him, Thus saith the LORD God of Israel, I have {b} anointed thee king over the people of the LORD, [even] over Israel.

2Ki 9:11

9:11 Then Jehu came forth to the {c} servants of his lord: and [one] said unto him, [Is] all well? wherefore came this {d} mad [fellow] to thee? And he said unto them, Ye know the man, and his communication.

2Ki 9:16

9:16 So Jehu rode in a chariot, and went to Jezreel; for Joram lay there. And {e} Ahaziah king of Judah was come down to see Joram.

2Ki 9:20

9:20 And the watchman told, saying, He came even unto them, and cometh not again: and the driving [is] like the driving of Jehu the son of Nimshi; for he driveth {f} furiously.

2Ki 9:22

9:22 And it came to pass, when Joram saw Jehu, that he said, [Is it] {g} peace, Jehu? And he answered, What peace, so long as the whoredoms of thy mother Jezebel and her witchcrafts [are so] many?

2Ki 9:26

9:26 Surely I have seen yesterday the blood of Naboth, and the blood of his {h} sons, saith the LORD; and I will requite thee in this plat, saith the LORD. Now therefore take [and] cast him into the plat [of ground], according to the word of the LORD.

2Ki 9:27

9:27 But when Ahaziah the king of Judah saw [this], he fled by the way of the garden house. And Jehu followed after him, and said, Smite him also in the chariot. [And they did so] at the going up to Gur, which [is] by Ibleam. And he fled to {i} Megiddo, and died there.

2Ki 9:29

2Ki 9:31

9:31 And as Jehu entered in at the gate, she said, [Had] {m} Zimri peace, who slew his master?

2Ki 9:33

2Ki 10:1

10:1 And Ahab had seventy {a} sons in Samaria. And Jehu wrote letters, and sent to Samaria, unto the rulers of Jezreel, to the elders, and to them that brought up Ahab's [children], saying,

2Ki 10:3

10:3 Look even out the best and meetest of your master's sons, and {b} set [him] on his father's throne, and fight for your master's house.

2Ki 10:6

10:6 Then he wrote a letter the second time to them, saying, If ye [be] mine, and [if] ye will hearken unto my voice, {c} take ye the heads of the men your master's sons, and come to me to Jezreel by to morrow this time. Now the king's sons, [being] seventy persons, [were] with the great men of the city, which brought them up.

2Ki 10:9

10:15 And when he was departed thence, he lighted on Jehonadab the son of Rechab [coming] to meet him: and he {g} saluted him, and said to him, Is thine heart right, as my heart [is] with thy heart?

2Ki 10:25

10:25 And it came to pass, as soon as he had made an end of offering the burnt offering, that Jehu said to the guard and to the captains, Go in, [and] slay them; let none come forth. And they smote them with the edge of the sword; and the guard and the captains cast [them] out, and went to the {k} city of the house of Baal.

2Ki 10:30

10:30 And the LORD said unto Jehu, Because thou hast done well in executing [that which is] right in mine eyes, [and] hast done unto the house of Ahab according to all that [was] in mine heart, thy {l} children of the fourth [generation] shall sit on the throne of Israel.

2Ki 11:5

11:5 And he commanded them, saying, This [is] the thing that ye shall do; A third part of {e} you that enter in on the sabbath shall {f} even be keepers of the watch of the king's house;

2Ki 11:6

11:6 And a third part [shall be] at the gate of {g} Sur; and a third part at the gate behind the guard: so shall ye keep the watch of the house, that it be not broken down.

2Ki 11:7

11:7 And two parts of all you that {h} go forth on the sabbath, even they shall keep the watch of the house of the LORD about the king.

2Ki 11:9

11:9 And the captains over the hundreds did according to all [things] that Jehoiada the priest commanded: and they took every man his men that were to come in on the sabbath, with them that should go out on the {i} sabbath, and came to Jehoiada the priest.

11:14 And when she looked, behold, the king stood by a {n} pillar, as the manner [was], and the princes and the trumpeters by the king, and all the people of the land rejoiced, and blew with trumpets: and Athaliah rent her clothes, and cried, Treason, Treason.

2Ki 11:15

11:15 But Jehoiada the priest commanded the captains of the hundreds, the officers of the host, and said unto them, Have her forth without the ranges: and him that {o} followeth her kill with the sword. For the priest had said, Let her not be slain in the house of the LORD.

12:3 But {b} the high places were not taken away: the people still sacrificed and burnt incense in the high places.

2Ki 12:4

12:4 And Jehoash said to the priests, All the money of the dedicated things that is brought into the house of the LORD, [even] the money of every one that passeth [the {c} account], the money that every man is set at, [and] all the money that cometh into any man's heart to bring into the house of the LORD,

2Ki 12:5

12:5 Let the priests take [it] to them, every man of his acquaintance: and let them repair the {d} breaches of the house, wheresoever any breach shall be found.

2Ki 12:7

12:7 Then king Jehoash called for Jehoiada the priest, and the [other] priests, and said unto them, Why repair ye not the breaches of the house? now therefore {e} receive no [more] money of your acquaintance, but deliver it for the breaches of the house.

2Ki 12:9

12:9 But Jehoiada the priest took a chest, and bored a hole in the lid of it, and set it beside the altar, on the {f} right side as one cometh into the house of the LORD: and the priests that kept the door put therein all the money [that was] brought into the house of the LORD.

2Ki 12:11

12:11 And they gave the money, being told, into the hands of them {g} that did the work, that had the oversight of the house of the LORD: and they laid it out to the carpenters and builders, that wrought upon the house of the LORD,

2Ki 12:13

12:13 Howbeit there were {h} not made for the house of the LORD bowls of silver, snuffers, basons, trumpets, any vessels of gold, or vessels of silver, of the money [that was] brought into the house of the LORD:

2Ki 13:3

13:3 And the anger of the LORD was kindled against Israel, and he delivered them into the hand of Hazael king of Syria, and into the hand of Benhadad the son of Hazael, all {b} [their] days.

2Ki 13:5

13:5 (And the LORD gave Israel a {c} saviour, so that they went out from under the hand of the Syrians: and the children of Israel {d} dwelt in their tents, as beforetime.

2Ki 13:6

13:6 Nevertheless they departed not from the sins of the house of Jeroboam, who made Israel sin, [but] walked therein: and there remained the {e} grove also in Samaria.)

2Ki 13:7

13:7 Neither did he leave of the people to Jehoahaz but fifty horsemen, and ten chariots, and ten thousand footmen; for the king of {f} Syria had destroyed them, and had made them like the dust by threshing.

2Ki 13:10

13:10 In the thirty and seventh year of Joash king {g} of Judah began Jehoash the son of Jehoahaz to reign over Israel in Samaria, [and reigned] sixteen years.

2Ki 13:17

13:17 And he said, Open the window {i} eastward. And he opened [it]. Then Elisha said, Shoot. And he shot. And he said, The arrow of the LORD'S deliverance, and the arrow of deliverance from Syria: for thou shalt smite the Syrians in Aphek, till thou have consumed [them].

2Ki 13:19

13:19 And the man of God was {k} wroth with him, and said, Thou shouldest have smitten five or six times; then hadst thou smitten Syria till thou hadst consumed [it]: whereas now thou shalt smite Syria [but] thrice.

2Ki 13:21

13:21 And it came to pass, as they were burying a man, that, behold, they spied a band [of men]; and they cast the man into the sepulchre of Elisha: and when the man was let down, and touched the bones of Elisha, he {l} revived, and stood up on his feet.

2Ki 13:23

13:23 And the LORD was gracious unto them, and had compassion on them, and had respect unto them, because of his covenant with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, and would not destroy them, neither cast he them from his presence as {m} yet.

2Ki 14:3

14:3 And he did [that which was] {a} right in the sight of the LORD, yet not like David his father: he did according to all things as Joash his father did.

2Ki 14:6

14:6 But the children of the murderers he {b} slew not: according unto that which is written in the book of the law of Moses, wherein the LORD commanded, saying, The fathers shall not be put to death for the children, nor the children be put to death for the fathers; but every man shall be put to death for his own sin.

14:9 And Jehoash the king of Israel sent to Amaziah king of Judah, saying, The thistle that [was] in Lebanon sent to the {e} cedar that [was] in Lebanon, saying, Give thy daughter to my son to wife: and there passed by a wild beast that [was] in Lebanon, and trode down the thistle.

2Ki 14:10

14:10 Thou hast indeed smitten Edom, and thine heart hath lifted thee up: {f} glory [of this], and tarry at home: for why shouldest thou meddle to [thy] hurt, that thou shouldest fall, [even] thou, and Judah with thee?

2Ki 14:14

14:14 And he took all the gold and silver, and all the vessels that were found in the house of the LORD, and in the treasures of the king's house, and {g} hostages, and returned to Samaria.

(g) That is, which the Israelites had given to them from Judah for an assurance of peace.

14:22 He built {k} Elath, and restored it to Judah, after that the king slept with his fathers.

2Ki 14:24

14:24 And he did [that which was] evil in the sight of the LORD: he departed not from all the {l} sins of Jeroboam the son of Nebat, who made Israel to sin.

2Ki 14:26

14:26 For the LORD saw the affliction of Israel, [that it was] very bitter: for [there was] not any {m} shut up, nor any left, nor any helper for Israel.

2Ki 14:28

14:28 Now the rest of the acts of Jeroboam, and all that he did, and his might, how he warred, and how he recovered Damascus, and {n} Hamath, [which belonged] to Judah, for Israel, are they not written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Israel?

2Ki 15:3

15:3 And he did [that which was] {a} right in the sight of the LORD, according to all that his father Amaziah had done;

2Ki 15:5

2Ki 15:16

15:16 Then Menahem smote {f} Tiphsah, and all that [were] therein, and the coasts thereof from Tirzah: because they opened not [to him], therefore he smote [it; and] all the women therein that were with child he ripped up.

2Ki 15:19

15:19 [And] Pul the king of Assyria came against the {g} land: and Menahem gave Pul a thousand {h} talents of silver, that his hand might be with him to confirm the kingdom in his hand.

2Ki 15:25

15:25 But Pekah the son of Remaliah, a captain of his, conspired against him, and smote him in Samaria, in the palace of the king's house, with {i} Argob and Arieh, and with him fifty men of the Gileadites: and he killed him, and reigned in his room.

2Ki 15:29

15:29 In the days of Pekah king of Israel {k} came Tiglathpileser king of Assyria, and took Ijon, and Abelbethmaachah, and Janoah, and Kedesh, and Hazor, and Gilead, and Galilee, all the land of Naphtali, and carried them captive to Assyria.

2Ki 15:34

15:34 And he did [that which was] right in the sight of the LORD: he did according {l} to all that his father Uzziah had done.

2Ki 15:37

15:37 In {m} those days the LORD began to send against Judah Rezin the king of Syria, and {n} Pekah the son of Remaliah.

2Ki 16:1

16:1 In the seventeenth year of Pekah the son of Remaliah {a} Ahaz the son of Jotham king of Judah began to reign.

2Ki 16:3

16:3 But he walked in the way of the kings of Israel, yea, and made his son to {b} pass through the fire, according to the abominations of the heathen, whom the LORD cast out from before the children of Israel.

2Ki 16:5

16:5 Then Rezin king of Syria and Pekah son of Remaliah king of Israel came up to Jerusalem to war: and they besieged Ahaz, but could not overcome {c} [him].

2Ki 16:6

16:6 At that time Rezin king of Syria recovered {d} Elath to Syria, and drave the Jews from Elath: and the Syrians came to Elath, and dwelt there unto this day.

2Ki 16:7

16:7 So Ahaz sent {e} messengers to Tiglathpileser king of Assyria, saying, I [am] thy servant and thy son: come up, and save me out of the hand of the king of Syria, and out of the hand of the king of Israel, which rise up against me.

2Ki 16:8

16:8 And Ahaz took the silver and gold that was found in the {f} house of the LORD, and in the treasures of the king's house, and sent [it for] a present to the king of Assyria.

2Ki 16:11

16:11 And Urijah the priest built an altar {g} according to all that king Ahaz had sent from Damascus: so Urijah the priest made [it] against king Ahaz came from Damascus.

2Ki 16:12

16:12 And when the king was come from Damascus, the king saw the altar: and the king approached to the altar, and offered {h} thereon.

2Ki 16:14

16:14 And he brought also the brasen altar, which [was] before the LORD, from the forefront of the house, from between the altar and the house of the LORD, and put it on the {i} north side of the altar.

2Ki 16:15

16:15 And king Ahaz commanded Urijah the priest, saying, Upon the great altar burn the morning burnt offering, and the evening meat offering, and the king's burnt sacrifice, and his meat offering, with the burnt offering of all the people of the land, and their meat offering, and their drink offerings; and sprinkle upon it all the blood of the burnt offering, and all the blood of the sacrifice: and the {k} brasen altar shall be for me to enquire [by].

2Ki 16:18

16:18 And the {l} covert for the sabbath that they had built in the house, and the king's entry without, turned he from the house of the LORD {m} for the king of Assyria.

2Ki 17:2

17:2 And he did [that which was] evil in the sight of the LORD, {a} but not as the kings of Israel that were before him.

2Ki 17:4

17:4 And the king of Assyria found conspiracy in Hoshea: for he had sent messengers to So king of Egypt, and brought no present to the king of Assyria, {b} as [he had done] year by year: therefore the king of Assyria shut him up, and bound him in prison.

2Ki 17:6

17:6 In the ninth year of Hoshea the king of Assyria took Samaria, and carried Israel away into Assyria, and placed them in Halah and in Habor [by] the river of Gozan, and in the cities of the {c} Medes.

2Ki 17:7

17:7 For [so] it was, that the children of Israel had {d} sinned against the LORD their God, which had brought them up out of the land of Egypt, from under the hand of Pharaoh king of Egypt, and had feared other gods,

2Ki 17:9

17:9 And the children of Israel did secretly [those] things that [were] not right against the LORD their God, and they built them high places in all their cities, from the tower {e} of the watchmen to the fenced city.

2Ki 17:14

17:14 Notwithstanding they would not hear, but hardened their necks, like to the neck of their {f} fathers, that did not believe in the LORD their God.

2Ki 17:16

17:16 And they left all the commandments of the LORD their God, and made them molten images, [even] two calves, and made a grove, and worshipped all the {g} host of heaven, and served Baal.

2Ki 17:17

17:17 And they caused their sons and their daughters to {h} pass through the fire, and used divination and enchantments, and {i} sold themselves to do evil in the sight of the LORD, to provoke him to anger.

2Ki 17:18

17:18 Therefore the LORD was very angry with Israel, and removed them out of his sight: there was none left but the tribe of Judah {k} only.

2Ki 17:20

17:20 And the LORD rejected all the seed of Israel, and afflicted them, and delivered them into the hand of spoilers, until he had cast them out of his {l} sight.

2Ki 17:21

17:21 {m} For he rent Israel from the house of David; and they made Jeroboam the son of Nebat king: and Jeroboam drave Israel from following the LORD, and made them sin a great sin.

2Ki 17:24

17:24 And the king of Assyria brought [men] from Babylon, and from {n} Cuthah, and from Ava, and from Hamath, and from Sepharvaim, and placed [them] in the cities of Samaria instead of the children of Israel: and they possessed Samaria, and dwelt in the cities thereof.

2Ki 17:25

17:25 And [so] it was at the beginning of their dwelling there, [that] they {o} feared not the LORD: therefore the LORD sent lions among them, which slew [some] of them.

2Ki 17:27

17:27 Then the king of Assyria commanded, saying, Carry thither one of the priests whom ye brought from thence; and let them go and dwell there, and let him teach them the manner of the God {p} of the land.

2Ki 17:30

17:30 And the men of Babylon made {q} Succothbenoth, and the men of Cuth made Nergal, and the men of Hamath made Ashima,

2Ki 17:33

17:33 They {r} feared the LORD, and served their own gods, after the manner of the nations whom they carried away from thence.

2Ki 17:34

17:34 Unto this day they do after the former manners: they fear not the LORD, neither do they after {s} their statutes, or after their ordinances, or after the law and commandment which the LORD commanded the children of Jacob, whom he named Israel;

2Ki 17:41

17:41 So these {t} nations feared the LORD, and served their graven images, both their children, and their children's children: as did their fathers, so do they unto this day.

2Ki 18:3

18:3 And he did [that which was] {a} right in the sight of the LORD, according to all that David his father did.

2Ki 18:4

18:4 He removed the high places, and brake the images, and cut down the groves, and brake in pieces the brasen serpent that Moses had made: for unto those days the children of Israel did burn incense to it: and he called it {b} Nehushtan.

2Ki 18:8

18:8 He smote the Philistines, [even] unto Gaza, and the borders thereof, {c} from the tower of the watchmen to the fenced city.

2Ki 18:14

18:14 And Hezekiah king of Judah sent to the king of Assyria to Lachish, saying, {d} I have offended; return from me: that which thou puttest on me will I bear. And the king of Assyria appointed unto Hezekiah king of Judah three hundred talents of silver and thirty talents of gold.

2Ki 18:17

18:17 And the king of Assyria sent {e} Tartan and Rabsaris and Rabshakeh from Lachish to king Hezekiah with a great host against Jerusalem. And they went up and came to Jerusalem. And when they were come up, they came and stood by the conduit of the upper pool, which [is] in the highway of the fuller's field.

2Ki 18:20

18:20 Thou sayest, (but [they are but] vain words,) [I have] {f} counsel and strength for the war. Now on whom dost thou trust, that thou rebellest against me?

2Ki 18:21

18:21 Now, behold, thou trustest upon the staff of this bruised reed, [even] upon {g} Egypt, on which if a man lean, it will go into his hand, and pierce it: so [is] Pharaoh king of Egypt unto all that trust on him.

2Ki 18:22

18:22 But if ye say unto me, We trust in the LORD our God: [is] not that he, whose high places and whose altars Hezekiah hath {h} taken away, and hath said to Judah and Jerusalem, Ye shall worship before this altar in Jerusalem?

2Ki 18:23

18:23 Now therefore, I pray thee, give {i} pledges to my lord the king of Assyria, and I will deliver thee two thousand horses, if thou be able on thy part to set riders upon them.

2Ki 18:25

18:25 Am I now come up without the {k} LORD against this place to destroy it? The LORD said to me, Go up against this land, and destroy it.

2Ki 18:32

18:32 Until {l} I come and take you away to a land like your own land, a land of corn and wine, a land of bread and vineyards, a land of oil olive and of honey, that ye may live, and not die: and hearken not unto Hezekiah, when he persuadeth you, saying, The LORD will deliver us.

2Ki 18:35

18:35 Who [are] they among all the gods of the countries, that have delivered their country out of mine hand, that the {m} LORD should deliver Jerusalem out of mine hand?

2Ki 19:2

19:2 And he sent Eliakim, which [was] over the household, and Shebna the scribe, and the elders of the priests, covered with sackcloth, {a} to Isaiah the prophet the son of Amoz.

2Ki 19:3

19:3 And they said unto him, Thus saith Hezekiah, This day [is] a day of trouble, and of rebuke, and blasphemy: for the children are come to {b} the birth, and [there is] not strength to bring forth.

2Ki 19:4

19:4 It may be the LORD thy God will hear all the words of Rabshakeh, whom the king of Assyria his master hath sent to reproach the living God; and will reprove the words which the LORD thy God hath heard: wherefore lift up [thy] prayer for the {c} remnant that are left.

2Ki 19:7

19:7 Behold, I will send a blast {d} upon him, and he shall hear a rumour, and shall return to his own land; and I will cause him to fall by the sword in his own land.

2Ki 19:9

19:9 And when {e} he heard say of Tirhakah king of Ethiopia, {f} Behold, he is come out to fight against thee: he sent messengers again unto Hezekiah, saying,

2Ki 19:10

19:10 Thus shall ye speak to Hezekiah king of Judah, saying, Let not thy {g} God in whom thou trustest deceive thee, saying, Jerusalem shall not be delivered into the hand of the king of Assyria.

2Ki 19:14

19:14 And Hezekiah received the letter of the hand of the messengers, and read it: and Hezekiah went up into the house of the LORD, and spread it before the {h} LORD.

2Ki 19:15

19:15 And Hezekiah {i} prayed before the LORD, and said, O LORD God of Israel, which dwellest [between] the cherubims, thou art the God, [even] thou alone, of all the kingdoms of the earth; thou hast made heaven and earth.

2Ki 19:16

19:16 LORD, {k} bow down thine ear, and hear: open, LORD, thine eyes, and see: and hear the words of Sennacherib, which hath sent him to reproach the {l} living God.

2Ki 19:19

19:19 Now therefore, O LORD our God, I beseech thee, save thou us out of his hand, that all the {m} kingdoms of the earth may know that thou [art] the LORD God, [even] thou only.

2Ki 19:21

19:21 This [is] the word that the LORD hath spoken concerning him; The {n} virgin the daughter of Zion hath despised thee, [and] laughed thee to scorn; the daughter of Jerusalem hath shaken her head at thee.

2Ki 19:22

19:22 Whom hast thou reproached and blasphemed? and against whom hast thou exalted [thy] voice, and lifted up thine eyes on high? [even] {o} against the Holy [One] of Israel.

2Ki 19:23

19:23 By thy messengers thou hast reproached the Lord, and hast said, With the multitude of my chariots I am come up to the height of the mountains, to the sides of Lebanon, and will cut down the tall cedar trees thereof, [and] the choice fir trees thereof: and I will enter into the {p} lodgings of his borders, [and into] the forest of his Carmel.

2Ki 19:25

19:25 Hast thou not heard long ago [how] I have done it, [and] of ancient times that I have formed it? {q} now have I brought it to pass, that thou shouldest be to lay waste fenced cities [into] ruinous heaps.

2Ki 19:26

19:26 Therefore their {r} inhabitants were of small power, they were dismayed and confounded; they were [as] the grass of the field, and [as] the green herb, [as] the grass on the housetops, and [as corn] blasted before it be grown up.

2Ki 19:28

19:28 Because thy rage against me and thy tumult is come up into mine ears, therefore I will put my {s} hook in thy nose, and my bridle in thy lips, and I will turn thee back by the way by which thou camest.

2Ki 19:29

19:29 And this [shall be] a {t} sign unto thee, Ye shall eat this year such things as grow of themselves, and in the second year that which springeth of the same; and in the third year sow ye, and reap, and plant vineyards, and eat the fruits thereof.

2Ki 19:30

19:30 And the remnant that is escaped of the house of Judah shall yet again take {u} root downward, and bear fruit upward.

2Ki 19:31

19:31 For out of Jerusalem shall go forth a remnant, and they that escape out of mount Zion: the {x} zeal of the LORD [of hosts] shall do this.

2Ki 19:37

19:37 And it came to pass, as he was worshipping in the house of Nisroch his god, that Adrammelech and Sharezer his sons {y} smote him with the sword: and they escaped into the land of Armenia. And Esarhaddon his son reigned in his stead.

2Ki 20:2

20:2 Then he turned his face to the {a} wall, and prayed unto the LORD, saying,

2Ki 20:3

20:3 I beseech thee, O LORD, remember now how I have walked before thee in truth and with a {b} perfect heart, and have done [that which is] good in thy sight. And Hezekiah {c} wept sore.

2Ki 20:5

20:5 Turn again, and tell Hezekiah the captain of my people, Thus saith the LORD, the God of David thy father, I have heard thy {d} prayer, I have seen thy tears: behold, I will heal thee: on the third day thou shalt go up unto the {e} house of the LORD.

2Ki 20:7

20:7 And Isaiah said, Take a {f} lump of figs. And they took and laid [it] on the boil, and he recovered.

2Ki 20:10

20:10 And Hezekiah answered, It is a light thing for the shadow to go down ten degrees: nay, but let the shadow {g} return backward ten degrees.

2Ki 20:11

20:11 And Isaiah the prophet cried unto the LORD: and he brought the shadow ten degrees backward, by which it had gone down in the {h} dial of Ahaz.

2Ki 20:12

20:12 At that time Berodachbaladan, the son of Baladan, king of Babylon, sent letters and a {i} present unto Hezekiah: for he had heard that Hezekiah had been sick.

2Ki 20:13

20:13 And Hezekiah hearkened unto them, and shewed them all the house of his precious things, the silver, and the gold, and the spices, and the precious ointment, and [all] the house of his armour, and all that was found in his treasures: there was nothing in his house, nor in all his {k} dominion, that Hezekiah shewed them not.

2Ki 20:19

20:19 Then said Hezekiah unto Isaiah, Good [is] the word of the LORD which thou hast {l} spoken. And he said, [Is it] not [good], if {m} peace and truth be in my days?

2Ki 21:6

21:6 And he made his son {a} pass through the fire, and observed times, and used enchantments, and dealt with familiar spirits and wizards: he wrought much wickedness in the sight of the LORD, to provoke [him] to anger.

2Ki 21:8

21:8 Neither will I make the feet of Israel move any more out of the land which I gave their fathers; only if they will {b} observe to do according to all that I have commanded them, and according to all the law that my servant Moses commanded them.

2Ki 21:12

21:12 Therefore thus saith the LORD God of Israel, Behold, I [am] bringing [such] evil upon Jerusalem and Judah, that whosoever heareth of it, both his ears shall {c} tingle.

2Ki 21:13

21:13 And I will stretch over Jerusalem the line {d} of Samaria, and the plummet of the house of Ahab: and I will wipe Jerusalem as [a man] wipeth a dish, wiping [it], and turning [it] upside down.

2Ki 21:14

21:14 And I will forsake the {e} remnant of mine inheritance, and deliver them into the hand of their enemies; and they shall become a prey and a spoil to all their enemies;

2Ki 21:16

21:16 Moreover Manasseh shed {s} innocent blood very much, till he had filled Jerusalem from one end to another; beside his sin wherewith he made Judah to sin, in doing [that which was] evil in the sight of the LORD.

2Ki 21:22

21:22 And he forsook the LORD God of his fathers, and walked not in the {g} way of the LORD.

2Ki 22:2

22:2 And he did [that which was] right in the sight of the LORD, and {a} walked in all the way of David his father, and turned not aside to the right hand or to the left.

2Ki 22:4

22:4 Go up to Hilkiah the high priest, that he may sum the silver which is brought into the house of the LORD, which the keepers of the {b} door have gathered of the people:

2Ki 22:5

22:5 And let {c} them deliver it into the hand of the doers of the work, that have the oversight of the house of the LORD: and let them give it to the doers of the work which [is] in the house of the LORD, to repair the breaches of the house,

2Ki 22:7

22:7 Howbeit there was no reckoning made with them of the money that was delivered into their hand, because they dealt {d} faithfully.

2Ki 22:8

22:8 And Hilkiah the high priest said unto Shaphan the scribe, I have found the {e} book of the law in the house of the LORD. And Hilkiah gave the book to Shaphan, and he read it.

2Ki 22:13

22:13 Go ye, {f} enquire of the LORD for me, and for the people, and for all Judah, concerning the words of this book that is found: for great [is] the wrath of the LORD that is kindled against us, because our fathers have not hearkened unto the words of this book, to do according unto all that which is written concerning us.

2Ki 22:14

22:14 So Hilkiah the priest, and Ahikam, and Achbor, and Shaphan, and Asahiah, went unto Huldah the prophetess, the wife of Shallum the son of Tikvah, the son of Harhas, keeper of the wardrobe; (now she dwelt in Jerusalem in the {g} college;) and they communed with her.

2Ki 22:17

22:17 Because they have forsaken me, and have burned incense unto other gods, that they might provoke me to anger with all the {h} works of their hands; therefore my wrath shall be kindled against this place, and shall not be quenched.

2Ki 22:19

22:19 Because thine heart was {i} tender, and thou hast humbled thyself before the LORD, when thou heardest what I spake against this place, and against the inhabitants thereof, that they should become a desolation and a curse, and hast rent thy clothes, and wept before me; I also have heard [thee], saith the LORD.

2Ki 22:20

22:20 Behold therefore, I will gather thee unto thy fathers, and thou shalt be gathered into thy grave in {k} peace; and thine eyes shall not see all the evil which I will bring upon this place. And they brought the king word again.

2Ki 23:1

23:1 And the king {a} sent, and they gathered unto him all the elders of Judah and of Jerusalem.

2Ki 23:3

23:3 And the king stood by {b} a pillar, and made a {c} covenant before the LORD, to walk after the LORD, and to keep his commandments and his testimonies and his statutes with all [their] heart and all [their] soul, to perform the words of this covenant that were written in this book. And all the people stood to the covenant.

2Ki 23:4

23:4 And the king commanded Hilkiah the high priest, and the {d} priests of the second order, and the keepers of the door, to bring forth out of the temple of the LORD all the vessels that were made for Baal, and for the grove, and for all the host of heaven: and he burned them without Jerusalem in the fields of Kidron, and carried {e} the ashes of them unto Bethel.

2Ki 23:5

23:5 And he put down the {f} idolatrous priests, whom the kings of Judah had ordained to burn incense in the high places in the cities of Judah, and in the places round about Jerusalem; them also that burned incense unto Baal, to the sun, and to the moon, and to the planets, and to all the host of heaven.

2Ki 23:6

23:6 And he brought out the {g} grove from the house of the LORD, without Jerusalem, unto the brook Kidron, and burned it at the brook Kidron, and stamped [it] small to powder, and cast the powder thereof upon the {h} graves of the children of the people.

2Ki 23:9

23:9 Nevertheless the priests of the high places {i} came not up to the altar of the LORD in Jerusalem, but they did eat of the unleavened bread among their brethren.

23:10 And he defiled {k} Topheth, which [is] in the valley of the children of Hinnom, that no man might make his son or his daughter to pass through the fire to Molech.

2Ki 23:11

23:11 And he took away the {l} horses that the kings of Judah had given to the sun, at the entering in of the house of the LORD, by the chamber of Nathanmelech the chamberlain, which [was] in the suburbs, and burned the chariots of the sun with fire.

2Ki 23:13

23:13 And the high places that [were] before Jerusalem, which [were] on the right hand of the {m} mount of corruption, which Solomon the king of Israel had builded for Ashtoreth the abomination of the Zidonians, and for Chemosh the abomination of the Moabites, and for Milcom the abomination of the children of Ammon, did the king defile.

2Ki 23:15

23:15 Moreover {n} the altar that [was] at Bethel, [and] the high place which Jeroboam the son of Nebat, who made Israel to sin, had made, both that altar and the high place he brake down, and burned the high place, [and] stamped [it] small to powder, and burned the grove.

2Ki 23:16

23:16 And as Josiah turned himself, he spied the sepulchres that [were] there in the mount, and sent, and took the bones out of the sepulchres, and burned [them] upon the altar, and polluted it, according to the word of the LORD which the {o} man of God proclaimed, who proclaimed these words.

2Ki 23:18

23:18 And he said, Let him alone; let no man move his bones. So they let his bones alone, with the bones of the {p} prophet that came out of Samaria.

2Ki 23:22

23:22 Surely there was not holden {q} such a passover from the days of the judges that judged Israel, nor in all the days of the kings of Israel, nor of the kings of Judah;

2Ki 23:26

23:26 Notwithstanding the LORD turned not from the {r} fierceness of his great wrath, wherewith his anger was kindled against Judah, because of all the provocations that Manasseh had provoked him withal.

2Ki 23:29

23:29 In his days Pharaohnechoh king of Egypt went up against the king of Assyria to the river Euphrates: and king Josiah {s} went against him; and he slew him at Megiddo, when he had seen him.

2Ki 23:32

23:32 And he did [that which was] evil in the sight of the LORD, according to all that his {t} fathers had done.

2Ki 23:33

23:33 And Pharaohnechoh put him in bands {u} at Riblah in the land of Hamath, that he might not reign in Jerusalem; and put the land to a tribute of an hundred talents of silver, and a talent of gold.

2Ki 24:1

24:1 In his {a} days Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon came up, and Jehoiakim became his servant three years: then he turned and rebelled against him.

2Ki 24:3

24:3 Surely at the {b} commandment of the LORD came [this] upon Judah, to remove [them] out of his sight, for the sins of Manasseh, according to all that he did;

24:6 So Jehoiakim {c} slept with his fathers: and Jehoiachin his son reigned in his stead.

2Ki 24:12

2Ki 25:3

25:3 And on the ninth [day] of the [fourth] month the famine {c} prevailed in the city, and there was no bread for the people of the land.

2Ki 25:4

25:4 And the city was broken up, and all the men of war [fled] by night by the way of the {d} gate between two walls, which [is] by the king's garden: (now the Chaldees [were] against the city round about:) and [the king] went the way toward the plain.
