- 12 When Ben-hadad heard this message, as he R762 was drinking with F461 the kings in the temporary F462 shelters, he said to his servants, "Station yourselves." So they stationed themselves against the city. 13 Now behold, a prophet approached Ahab king of Israel and said, "Thus says the LORD, `Have you seen all this great multitude? Behold, I R763 will deliver them into your hand today, and you R764 shall know that I am the LORD.' " 14 Ahab said, "By whom?" So he said, "Thus says the LORD, `By the young men of the rulers of the provinces.' " Then he said, "Who shall begin F463 the battle?" And he answered, F464 "You." 15 Then he mustered the young men of the rulers of the provinces, and there were 232; and after them he mustered all the people, even all the sons of Israel, 7,000. 16 They went out at noon, while Ben-hadad R765 was drinking himself drunk in the temporary F465 shelters with F466 the thirty-two kings who helped him. 17 The young men of the rulers of the provinces went out first; and Ben-hadad sent out and they told him, saying, "Men have come out from Samaria." 18 Then R766 he said, "If they have come out for peace, take them alive; or if they have come out for war, take them alive." 19 So these went out from the city, the young men of the rulers of the provinces, and the army which followed them. 20 They killed F467 each his man; and the Arameans fled and Israel pursued them, and Ben-hadad king of Aram escaped on a horse with horsemen. 21 The king of Israel went out and struck F468 the horses and chariots, and killed F468 the Arameans with a great slaughter.
