1 Brenhinoedd 16Beibl William Morgan (BWM)

16 Yna y daeth gair yr Arglwydd at Jehu mab Hanani yn erbyn Baasa, gan ddywedyd, Oherwydd i mi dy ddyrchafu o’r llwch, a’th wneuthur yn flaenor ar fy mhobl Israel, a rhodio ohonot tithau yn ffordd Jeroboam, a pheri i’m pobl Israel bechu, gan fy nigio â’u pechodau; Wele fi yn torri ymaith hiliogaeth Baasa, a hiliogaeth ei dŷ ef: a mi a wnaf dy dŷ di fel tŷ Jeroboam mab Nebat. Y cŵn a fwyty yr hwn fyddo marw o’r eiddo Baasa yn y ddinas; ac adar y nefoedd a fwyty yr hwn fyddo marw o’r eiddo ef yn y maes. A’r rhan arall o hanes Baasa, a’r hyn oll a wnaeth efe, a’i gadernid ef, onid ydynt yn ysgrifenedig yn llyfr cronicl brenhinoedd Israel? A Baasa a hunodd gyda’i dadau, ac a gladdwyd yn Tirsa; ac Ela ei fab a deyrnasodd yn ei le ef. Hefyd trwy law Jehu mab Hanani y proffwyd y bu gair yr Arglwydd yn erbyn Baasa, ac yn erbyn ei dŷ ef, oherwydd yr holl ddrygioni a wnaeth efe yng ngolwg yr Arglwydd, gan ei ddigio ef trwy waith ei ddwylo; gan fod fel tŷ Jeroboam, ac oblegid iddo ei ladd ef.

Yn y chweched flwyddyn ar hugain i Asa brenin Jwda y teyrnasodd Ela mab Baasa ar Israel yn Tirsa, ddwy flynedd. A Simri ei was ef, tywysog ar hanner y cerbydau, a gydfwriadodd yn ei erbyn ef, ac efe yn yfed yn feddw, yn Tirsa, yn nhŷ Arsa, yr hwn oedd benteulu yn Tirsa. 10 A Simri a aeth ac a’i trawodd ef, ac a’i lladdodd, yn y seithfed flwyddyn ar hugain i Asa brenin Jwda, ac a deyrnasodd yn ei le ef.

11 A phan ddechreuodd efe deyrnasu, ac eistedd ar ei deyrngadair, efe a laddodd holl dŷ Baasa: ni adawodd efe iddo ef un gwryw, na’i geraint, na’i gyfeillion. 12 Felly Simri a ddinistriodd holl dŷ Baasa, yn ôl gair yr Arglwydd, yr hwn a lefarodd efe yn erbyn Baasa trwy law Jehu y proffwyd. 13 Oherwydd holl bechodau Baasa, a phechodau Ela ei fab ef, trwy y rhai y pechasant hwy, a thrwy y rhai y gwnaethant i Israel bechu, gan ddigio Arglwydd Dduw Israel â’u gwagedd. 14 A’r rhan arall o hanes Ela, a’r hyn oll a wnaeth efe, onid ydynt hwy yn ysgrifenedig yn llyfr cronicl brenhinoedd Israel?

15 Yn y seithfed flwyddyn ar hugain i Asa brenin Jwda y teyrnasodd Simri saith niwrnod yn Tirsa: a’r bobl oedd yn gwersyllu yn erbyn Gibbethon eiddo y Philistiaid. 16 A chlybu y bobl y rhai oedd yn y gwersyll ddywedyd, Simri a gydfwriadodd, ac a laddodd y brenin. A holl Israel a goronasant Omri, tywysog y llu, yn frenin y dwthwn hwnnw ar Israel, yn y gwersyll. 17 Ac Omri a aeth i fyny, a holl Israel gydag ef, o Gibbethon; a hwy a warchaeasant ar Tirsa. 18 A phan welodd Simri fod y ddinas wedi ei hennill, efe a aeth i balas tŷ y brenin, ac a losgodd dŷ y brenin am ei ben â thân, ac a fu farw; 19 Am ei bechodau yn y rhai y pechodd efe, gan wneuthur drygioni yng ngolwg yr Arglwydd, gan rodio yn ffordd Jeroboam, ac yn ei bechod a wnaeth efe i beri i Israel bechu. 20 A’r rhan arall o hanes Simri, a’i gydfradwriaeth a gydfwriadodd efe; onid ydynt hwy yn ysgrifenedig yn llyfr cronicl brenhinoedd Israel?

21 Yna yr ymrannodd pobl Israel yn ddwy ran: rhan o’r bobl oedd ar ôl Tibni mab Ginath, i’w osod ef yn frenin, a rhan ar ôl Omri. 22 A’r bobl oedd ar ôl Omri a orchfygodd y bobl oedd ar ôl Tibni mab Ginath: felly Tibni a fu farw, ac Omri a deyrnasodd.

23 Yn yr unfed flwyddyn ar ddeg ar hugain i Asa brenin Jwda y teyrnasodd Omri ar Israel ddeuddeng mlynedd: yn Tirsa y teyrnasodd efe chwe blynedd. 24 Ac efe a brynodd fynydd Samaria gan Semer, er dwy dalent o arian; ac a adeiladodd yn y mynydd, ac a alwodd enw y ddinas a adeiladasai efe, ar ôl enw Semer, arglwydd y mynydd, Samaria.

25 Ond Omri a wnaeth ddrygioni yng ngŵydd yr Arglwydd, ac a wnaeth yn waeth na’r holl rai a fuasai o’i flaen ef. 26 Canys efe a rodiodd yn holl ffordd Jeroboam mab Nebat, ac yn ei bechod ef, trwy yr hwn y gwnaeth efe i Israel bechu, gan ddigio Arglwydd Dduw Israel â’u gwagedd hwynt. 27 A’r rhan arall o hanes Omri, yr hyn a wnaeth efe, a’i rymuster a wnaeth efe, onid ydynt hwy yn ysgrifenedig yn llyfr cronicl brenhinoedd Israel? 28 Ac Omri a hunodd gyda’i dadau, ac a gladdwyd yn Samaria, ac Ahab ei fab a deyrnasodd yn ei le ef.

29 Ac Ahab mab Omri a ddechreuodd deyrnasu ar Israel yn y drydedd flwyddyn ar bymtheg ar hugain i Asa brenin Jwda: ac Ahab mab Omri a deyrnasodd ar Israel yn Samaria ddwy flynedd ar hugain. 30 Ac Ahab mab Omri a wnaeth ddrygioni yng ngolwg yr Arglwydd y tu hwnt i bawb o’i flaen ef. 31 Canys ysgafn oedd ganddo ef rodio ym mhechodau Jeroboam mab Nebat, ac efe a gymerth yn wraig Jesebel merch Ethbaal brenin y Sidoniaid, ac a aeth ac a wasanaethodd Baal, ac a ymgrymodd iddo. 32 Ac efe a gyfododd allor i Baal yn nhŷ Baal, yr hwn a adeiladasai efe yn Samaria. 33 Ac Ahab a wnaeth lwyn. Ac Ahab a wnaeth fwy i ddigio Arglwydd Dduw Israel na holl frenhinoedd Israel a fuasai o’i flaen ef.

34 Yn ei ddyddiau ef Hïel y Betheliad a adeiladodd Jericho: yn Abiram ei gyntaf‐anedig y sylfaenodd efe hi, ac yn Segub ei fab ieuangaf y gosododd efe ei phyrth hi, yn ôl gair yr Arglwydd, yr hwn a lefarasai efe trwy law Josua mab Nun.

1 Kings 16New International Version (NIV)

16 Then the word of the Lord came to Jehu son of Hanani concerning Baasha: “I lifted you up from the dust and appointed you ruler over my people Israel, but you followed the ways of Jeroboam and caused my people Israel to sin and to arouse my anger by their sins. So I am about to wipe out Baasha and his house, and I will make your house like that of Jeroboam son of Nebat. Dogs will eat those belonging to Baasha who die in the city, and birds will feed on those who die in the country.”

As for the other events of Baasha’s reign, what he did and his achievements, are they not written in the book of the annals of the kings of Israel? Baasha rested with his ancestors and was buried in Tirzah. And Elah his son succeeded him as king.

Moreover, the word of the Lord came through the prophet Jehu son of Hanani to Baasha and his house, because of all the evil he had done in the eyes of the Lord, arousing his anger by the things he did, becoming like the house of Jeroboam—and also because he destroyed it.

Elah King of Israel

In the twenty-sixth year of Asa king of Judah, Elah son of Baasha became king of Israel, and he reigned in Tirzah two years.

Zimri, one of his officials, who had command of half his chariots, plotted against him. Elah was in Tirzah at the time, getting drunk in the home of Arza, the palace administrator at Tirzah. 10 Zimri came in, struck him down and killed him in the twenty-seventh year of Asa king of Judah. Then he succeeded him as king.

11 As soon as he began to reign and was seated on the throne, he killed off Baasha’s whole family. He did not spare a single male, whether relative or friend. 12 So Zimri destroyed the whole family of Baasha, in accordance with the word of the Lord spoken against Baasha through the prophet Jehu— 13 because of all the sins Baasha and his son Elah had committed and had caused Israel to commit, so that they aroused the anger of the Lord, the God of Israel, by their worthless idols.

14 As for the other events of Elah’s reign, and all he did, are they not written in the book of the annals of the kings of Israel?

Zimri King of Israel

15 In the twenty-seventh year of Asa king of Judah, Zimri reigned in Tirzah seven days. The army was encamped near Gibbethon, a Philistine town. 16 When the Israelites in the camp heard that Zimri had plotted against the king and murdered him, they proclaimed Omri, the commander of the army, king over Israel that very day there in the camp. 17 Then Omri and all the Israelites with him withdrew from Gibbethon and laid siege to Tirzah. 18 When Zimri saw that the city was taken, he went into the citadel of the royal palace and set the palace on fire around him. So he died, 19 because of the sins he had committed, doing evil in the eyes of the Lord and following the ways of Jeroboam and committing the same sin Jeroboam had caused Israel to commit.

20 As for the other events of Zimri’s reign, and the rebellion he carried out, are they not written in the book of the annals of the kings of Israel?

Omri King of Israel

21 Then the people of Israel were split into two factions; half supported Tibni son of Ginath for king, and the other half supported Omri. 22 But Omri’s followers proved stronger than those of Tibni son of Ginath. So Tibni died and Omri became king.

23 In the thirty-first year of Asa king of Judah, Omri became king of Israel, and he reigned twelve years, six of them in Tirzah. 24 He bought the hill of Samaria from Shemer for two talents[a] of silver and built a city on the hill, calling it Samaria, after Shemer, the name of the former owner of the hill.

25 But Omri did evil in the eyes of the Lord and sinned more than all those before him. 26 He followed completely the ways of Jeroboam son of Nebat, committing the same sin Jeroboam had caused Israel to commit, so that they aroused the anger of the Lord, the God of Israel, by their worthless idols.

27 As for the other events of Omri’s reign, what he did and the things he achieved, are they not written in the book of the annals of the kings of Israel? 28 Omri rested with his ancestors and was buried in Samaria. And Ahab his son succeeded him as king.

Ahab Becomes King of Israel

29 In the thirty-eighth year of Asa king of Judah, Ahab son of Omri became king of Israel, and he reigned in Samaria over Israel twenty-two years. 30 Ahab son of Omri did more evil in the eyes of the Lord than any of those before him. 31 He not only considered it trivial to commit the sins of Jeroboam son of Nebat, but he also married Jezebel daughter of Ethbaal king of the Sidonians, and began to serve Baal and worship him. 32 He set up an altar for Baal in the temple of Baal that he built in Samaria. 33 Ahab also made an Asherah pole and did more to arouse the anger of the Lord, the God of Israel, than did all the kings of Israel before him.

34 In Ahab’s time, Hiel of Bethel rebuilt Jericho. He laid its foundations at the cost of his firstborn son Abiram, and he set up its gates at the cost of his youngest son Segub, in accordance with the word of the Lord spoken by Joshua son of Nun.
