Ahaz Reigns over Judah

1 In the seventeenth year of Pekah the son of Remaliah, Ahaz R435 the son of Jotham, king of Judah, became king. 2 Ahaz R436 was twenty years old when he became king, and he reigned sixteen years in Jerusalem; and he did not do what was right in the sight of the LORD his God, as his father David had done. 3 But he walked in the way of the kings of Israel, and R437 even made his son pass through the fire, according R438 to the abominations of the nations whom the LORD had driven F205 out from before the sons of Israel. 4 He sacrificed R439 and burned incense on the high places and on the hills and under every green tree.

5 Then Rezin R440 king of Aram and Pekah son of Remaliah, king of Israel, came up to Jerusalem to wage war; and they besieged Ahaz, but R441 could not overcome F206 him. 6 At that time Rezin king of Aram recovered Elath R442 for Aram, and cleared the Judeans out of Elath F207 entirely; and the Arameans F208 came to Elath and have lived there to this day.

Ahaz Seeks Help of Aram

7 So R443 Ahaz sent messengers to Tiglath-pileser R444 king of Assyria, saying, "I am your servant and your son; come up and deliver me from the hand F209 of the king of Aram and from the hand F209 of the king of Israel, who are rising up against me." 8 Ahaz R445 took the silver and gold that was found in the house of the LORD and in the treasuries of the king's house, and sent a present to the king of Assyria. 9 So R446 the king of Assyria listened to him; and the king of Assyria went up against Damascus and captured R447 it, and carried the people of it away into exile to Kir, R448 and put Rezin to death.

Damascus Falls

10 Now King Ahaz went to Damascus to meet Tiglath-pileser R449 king of Assyria, and saw the altar which was at Damascus; and King Ahaz sent to Urijah R450 the priest the pattern F210 of the altar and its model, according to all its workmanship. 11 So Urijah the priest built an altar; according to all that King Ahaz had sent from Damascus, thus Urijah the priest made it, before F211 the coming of King Ahaz from Damascus. 12 When the king came from Damascus, the king saw the altar; then the R451 king approached the altar and went F212 up to it, 13 and burned F213 his burnt offering and his meal offering, and poured his drink offering and sprinkled the blood of his peace offerings on the altar. 14 The R452 bronze altar, which was before the LORD, he F214 brought from the front of the house, from between his R453 altar and the house of the LORD, and he put it on the north side of his altar. 15 Then King Ahaz commanded F215 Urijah the priest, saying, "Upon the great altar burn F216 the R454 morning burnt offering and the evening meal offering and the king's burnt offering and his meal offering, with the burnt offering of all the people of the land and their meal offering and their drink offerings; and sprinkle on it all the blood of the burnt offering and all the blood of the sacrifice. But the R455 bronze altar shall be for me to inquire by." 16 So Urijah the priest did according to all that King Ahaz commanded.

17 Then King Ahaz cut R456 off the borders of the stands, and removed the laver from them; he also took R457 down the sea from the bronze oxen which were under it and put it on a pavement of stone. 18 The covered way for the sabbath which they had built in the house, and the outer entry of the king, he removed from the house of the LORD because of the king of Assyria.

Hezekiah Reigns over Judah

19 Now the rest of the acts of Ahaz which he did, are they not written in R458 the Book of the Chronicles of the Kings of Judah? 20 So Ahaz R459 slept with his fathers, and was R460 buried with his fathers in the city of David; and his son Hezekiah reigned in his place.
