Kings of Israel: Jehoahaz and Jehoash

1 In the twenty-third year of Joash the son of Ahaziah, king of Judah, Jehoahaz the son of Jehu became king over Israel at Samaria, and he reigned seventeen years. 2 He did evil in the sight of the LORD, and followed the sins of Jeroboam the son of Nebat, with R352 which he made Israel sin; he did not turn from them. 3 So R353 the anger of the LORD was kindled against Israel, and He gave them continually into the hand of Hazael R354 king of Aram, and into the hand of Ben-hadad R355 the son of Hazael. 4 Then Jehoahaz R356 entreated the favor of the LORD, and the LORD listened to him; for He R357 saw the oppression of Israel, how the king of Aram oppressed them. 5 The LORD gave Israel a deliverer, R358 F175 so that they escaped F176 from under the hand of the Arameans; and the sons of Israel lived in their tents as formerly. 6 Nevertheless they did not turn away from the sins of the house of Jeroboam, with R359 which he made Israel sin, but walked in them; F177 and the R360 Asherah also remained standing in Samaria. 7 For he left to Jehoahaz of the army F178 not more than fifty horsemen and ten chariots and 10,000 footmen, for the king of Aram had destroyed them and made R361 them like the dust at threshing. 8 Now the rest of the acts of Jehoahaz, and all that he did and his might, are they not written in the Book of the Chronicles of the Kings of Israel? 9 And Jehoahaz slept with his fathers, and they buried him in Samaria; and Joash his son became king in his place.

10 In the thirty-seventh year of Joash king of Judah, Jehoash the son of Jehoahaz became king over Israel in Samaria, and reigned sixteen years. 11 He did evil in the sight of the LORD; he did not turn away from all the sins of Jeroboam the son of Nebat, with which he made Israel sin, but he walked in them. F179 12 Now R362 the rest of the acts of Joash and all that he did and his might with which he fought against Amaziah king of Judah, are they not written in the Book of the Chronicles of the Kings of Israel? 13 So Joash slept with his fathers, and Jeroboam sat on his throne; and Joash was buried in Samaria with the kings of Israel.

Death of Elisha

14 When Elisha became F180 sick with the illness of which he was to die, Joash the king of Israel came down to him and wept over him F181 and said, "My R363 father, my father, the chariots of Israel and its horsemen!" 15 Elisha said to him, "Take a bow and arrows." So he took F182 a bow and arrows. 16 Then he said to the king of Israel, "Put your hand on the bow." And he put his hand on it, then Elisha laid his hands on the king's hands. 17 He said, "Open the window toward the east," and he opened it. Then Elisha said, "Shoot!" And he shot. And he said, "The LORD'S arrow of victory, even the arrow of victory over Aram; for you will defeat F183 the Arameans at Aphek R364 until you have destroyed F184 them." 18 Then he said, "Take the arrows," and he took them. And he said to the king of Israel, "Strike the ground," and he struck it three times and stopped. F185 19 So the R365 man of God was angry with him and said, "You should have struck five or six times, then you would have struck Aram until you would have destroyed F186 it. But now you shall strike Aram only R366 three times."

20 Elisha died, and they buried him. Now the R367 bands of the Moabites would invade the land in the spring of the year. 21 As they were burying a man, behold, they saw a marauding band; and they cast the man into the grave of Elisha. And when the man touched F187 the bones of Elisha he revived R368 and stood up on his feet.

22 Now Hazael R369 king of Aram had oppressed Israel all the days of Jehoahaz. 23 But the LORD R370 was gracious to them and had R371 compassion on them and turned to them because of His R372 covenant with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, and would not destroy them or cast them from His presence until now.

24 When Hazael king of Aram died, Ben-hadad his son became king in his place. 25 Then Jehoash R373 the son of Jehoahaz took again from the hand of Ben-hadad the son of Hazael the cities which he had taken in war from the hand of Jehoahaz his father. Three R374 times Joash defeated F188 him and recovered the cities of Israel.
