2 Hari 13
Ang Pulong Sang Dios
Ang Paghari ni Jehoahaz sa Israel
13 Nangin hari sang Israel si Jehoahaz nga anak ni Jehu sang ika-23 nga tuig sang paghari ni Joash, nga anak ni Ahazia, sa Juda. Sa Samaria nag-estar si Jehoahaz, kag naghari siya sa sulod sang 17 ka tuig. 2 Malain ang iya ginhimo sa panulok sang Ginoo. Ginsunod niya ang mga sala ni Jeroboam nga anak ni Nebat, nga nangin kabangdanan sang pagpakasala sang mga taga-Israel. Kag wala gid siya nagbiya sa sini nga mga sala. 3 Gani naakig ang Ginoo sa Israel. Kag sa malawig nga tion ginpasakop niya sila kay Haring Hazael sang Aram kag sa iya anak nga si Ben Hadad.
4 Nagpangamuyo si Jehoahaz sa Ginoo, kag ginpamatian siya sang Ginoo, kay nakita sang Ginoo ang puwerte nga pagpamigos sang hari sang Aram sa Israel. 5 Ginhatagan sila sang Ginoo sang pangulo nga naghilway sa ila sa mga taga-Aram. Gani nagpuyo liwat sing malinong ang mga Israelinhon pareho sang una. 6 Pero wala sila magbiya sa pagsunod sa mga sala sang panimalay ni Jeroboam, nga nangin kabangdanan sang ila pagpakasala. Wala man nila paggub-a ang hulohaligi nga simbolo sang diosa nga si Ashera sa Samaria.
7 Sang ulihi ang nabilin kay Jehoahaz amo na lang ang 50 ka manugkabayo, 10 ka karwahe, kag 10,000 ka soldado, kay ang iban ginpamatay sang hari sang Aram, nga daw sa yab-ok nga gintasak-tasak.
8 Ang iban pa nga estorya parte sa paghari ni Jehoahaz, kag ang iya bantog nga mga binuhatan kag ang tanan niya nga ginhimo, nasulat sa Libro sang Kasaysayan sang mga Hari sang Israel. 9 Sang napatay si Jehoahaz, ginlubong siya sa ginlubngan sang iya mga katigulangan sa Samaria. Kag si Jehoash nga iya anak amo ang nagbulos sa iya bilang hari.
Ang Paghari ni Jehoash sa Israel
10 Nangin hari sang Israel si Jehoash nga anak ni Jehoahaz sang ika-37 nga tuig sang paghari ni Joash sa Juda. Sa Samaria nag-estar si Jehoash, kag naghari siya sa sulod sang 16 ka tuig. 11 Malain ang iya ginhimo sa panulok sang Ginoo. Wala siya nagbiya sa mga sala ni Jeroboam nga anak ni Nebat, nga nangin kabangdanan sang pagpakasala sang mga taga-Israel.
12 Ang iban pa nga estorya parte sa paghari ni Jehoash, kag ang iya bantog nga mga binuhatan kag ang tanan niya nga ginhimo, pati ang iya pagpakig-away kay Haring Amazia sang Juda, nasulat sa Libro sang Kasaysayan sang mga Hari sang Israel. 13 Sang napatay si Jehoash, ginlubong siya sa Samaria, didto sa ginlubngan sang mga hari sang Israel. Kag ang iya anak nga si Jeroboam II amo ang nagbulos sa iya bilang hari.
Napatay si Elisha
14 Sang buhi pa si Haring Jehoash, nagmasakit si Elisha kag daw mapatay na gid siya. Nagkadto si Haring Jehoash sa iya kag naghibi sa iya. Nagsiling si Jehoash, “Amay ko, Amay ko! Ang mga karwahe kag mga manugkarwahe sang Israel!”[a] 15 Nagsiling si Elisha, “Magkuha ka sang pana kag mga baslay.”[b] Kag gintuman ini ni Jehoash. 16 Dayon ginsilingan siya ni Elisha nga uyatan niya ang pana. Sang ginauyatan na niya ini, ginkaptan ni Elisha ang iya kamot 17 kag ginsilingan siya, “Abrihi ang bintana sa sidlangan dampi.” Kag gin-abrihan niya ini. Dayon ginsilingan siya ni Elisha nga magpana siya. Kag sang nagpana siya, nagsiling si Elisha, “Ina nga baslay palatandaan nga padaugon ka sang Ginoo kontra sa Aram. Laglagon mo sing bug-os ang mga Arameanhon sa Afek.”
18 Ginsilingan liwat ni Elisha si Jehoash nga magkuha sang mga baslay. Kag sang nagkuha siya, nagsiling si Elisha, “Panaa ang duta.” Kag ginpana niya ang duta sang tatlo ka beses, kag dayon nag-untat siya. 19 Naakig si Elisha sa iya kag nagsiling, “Kuntani lima ukon anom ka beses mo ini ginpana agod malaglag mo sing bug-os ang mga Arameanhon. Pero karon, mapierdi mo lang sila sing tatlo ka beses.”
20 Sang ulihi napatay si Elisha kag ginlubong.
Kada tuig may grupo sang mga Moabnon nga nagasalakay sa Israel. 21 Isa sina ka tion, may mga Israelinhon nga magalubong kuntani sang patay. Pero sang makakita sila sang grupo sang mga Moabnon nga nagasalakay, gindali-dali nila sulod ang bangkay sa kuweba nga ginlubngan ni Elisha kag nagpalagyo. Pagtandog sang bangkay sa mga tul-an ni Elisha, nabuhi ang patay kag nagtindog.
22 Ginpigos ni Haring Hazael sang Aram ang Israel sa bug-os nga panahon sang paghari ni Jehoahaz. 23 Pero ginkaluoyan kag ginkabalak-an sila sang Ginoo tungod sa iya kasugtanan kay Abraham, Isaac, kag Jacob. Hasta subong wala niya sila paglaglaga ukon pagpahalina sa ila lugar palayo sa iya presensya.
24 Napatay si Haring Hazael sang Aram, kag si Ben Hadad nga iya anak amo ang nagbulos sa iya bilang hari. 25 Napierdi ni Jehoash ang Aram sing tatlo ka beses, kag nabawi niya kay Ben Hadad ang mga banwa nga naagaw sang amay ni Ben Hadad nga si Hazael sang pagpakig-away niya sa amay ni Jehoash nga si Jehoahaz.
2 Kings 13
New International Version
Jehoahaz King of Israel
13 In the twenty-third year of Joash son of Ahaziah king of Judah, Jehoahaz son of Jehu became king of Israel in Samaria, and he reigned seventeen years. 2 He did evil(A) in the eyes of the Lord by following the sins of Jeroboam son of Nebat, which he had caused Israel to commit, and he did not turn away from them. 3 So the Lord’s anger(B) burned against Israel, and for a long time he kept them under the power(C) of Hazael king of Aram and Ben-Hadad(D) his son.
4 Then Jehoahaz sought(E) the Lord’s favor, and the Lord listened to him, for he saw(F) how severely the king of Aram was oppressing(G) Israel. 5 The Lord provided a deliverer(H) for Israel, and they escaped from the power of Aram. So the Israelites lived in their own homes as they had before. 6 But they did not turn away from the sins(I) of the house of Jeroboam, which he had caused Israel to commit; they continued in them. Also, the Asherah pole[a](J) remained standing in Samaria.
7 Nothing had been left(K) of the army of Jehoahaz except fifty horsemen, ten chariots and ten thousand foot soldiers, for the king of Aram had destroyed the rest and made them like the dust(L) at threshing time.
8 As for the other events of the reign of Jehoahaz, all he did and his achievements, are they not written in the book of the annals of the kings of Israel? 9 Jehoahaz rested with his ancestors and was buried in Samaria. And Jehoash[b] his son succeeded him as king.
Jehoash King of Israel
10 In the thirty-seventh year of Joash king of Judah, Jehoash son of Jehoahaz became king of Israel in Samaria, and he reigned sixteen years. 11 He did evil in the eyes of the Lord and did not turn away from any of the sins of Jeroboam son of Nebat, which he had caused Israel to commit; he continued in them.
12 As for the other events of the reign of Jehoash, all he did and his achievements, including his war against Amaziah(M) king of Judah, are they not written in the book of the annals(N) of the kings of Israel? 13 Jehoash rested with his ancestors, and Jeroboam(O) succeeded him on the throne. Jehoash was buried in Samaria with the kings of Israel.
14 Now Elisha had been suffering from the illness from which he died. Jehoash king of Israel went down to see him and wept over him. “My father! My father!” he cried. “The chariots(P) and horsemen of Israel!”
15 Elisha said, “Get a bow and some arrows,”(Q) and he did so. 16 “Take the bow in your hands,” he said to the king of Israel. When he had taken it, Elisha put his hands on the king’s hands.
17 “Open the east window,” he said, and he opened it. “Shoot!”(R) Elisha said, and he shot. “The Lord’s arrow of victory, the arrow of victory over Aram!” Elisha declared. “You will completely destroy the Arameans at Aphek.”(S)
18 Then he said, “Take the arrows,” and the king took them. Elisha told him, “Strike the ground.” He struck it three times and stopped. 19 The man of God was angry with him and said, “You should have struck the ground five or six times; then you would have defeated Aram and completely destroyed it. But now you will defeat it only three times.”(T)
20 Elisha died and was buried.
Now Moabite raiders(U) used to enter the country every spring. 21 Once while some Israelites were burying a man, suddenly they saw a band of raiders; so they threw the man’s body into Elisha’s tomb. When the body touched Elisha’s bones, the man came to life(V) and stood up on his feet.
22 Hazael king of Aram oppressed(W) Israel throughout the reign of Jehoahaz. 23 But the Lord was gracious to them and had compassion and showed concern for them because of his covenant(X) with Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. To this day he has been unwilling to destroy(Y) them or banish them from his presence.(Z)
24 Hazael king of Aram died, and Ben-Hadad(AA) his son succeeded him as king. 25 Then Jehoash son of Jehoahaz recaptured from Ben-Hadad son of Hazael the towns he had taken in battle from his father Jehoahaz. Three times(AB) Jehoash defeated him, and so he recovered(AC) the Israelite towns.
2 Kings 13
King James Version
13 In the three and twentieth year of Joash the son of Ahaziah king of Judah Jehoahaz the son of Jehu began to reign over Israel in Samaria, and reigned seventeen years.
2 And he did that which was evil in the sight of the Lord, and followed the sins of Jeroboam the son of Nebat, which made Israel to sin; he departed not therefrom.
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 their days.
4 And Jehoahaz besought the Lord, and the Lord hearkened unto him: for he saw the oppression of Israel, because the king of Syria oppressed them.
5 (And the Lord gave Israel a saviour, so that they went out from under the hand of the Syrians: and the children of Israel dwelt in their tents, as beforetime.
6 Nevertheless they departed not from the sins of the house of Jeroboam, who made Israel sin, but walked therein: and there remained the grove also in Samaria.)
7 Neither did he leave of the people to Jehoahaz but fifty horsemen, and ten chariots, and ten thousand footmen; for the king of Syria had destroyed them, and had made them like the dust by 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 reigned in his stead.
10 In the thirty and seventh year of Joash king of Judah began Jehoash the son of Jehoahaz to reign over Israel in Samaria, and reigned sixteen years.
11 And he did that which was evil in the sight of the Lord; he departed not from all the sins of Jeroboam the son of Nebat, who made Israel sin: but he walked therein.
12 And the rest of the acts of Joash, and all that he did, and his might wherewith he fought against Amaziah king of Judah, are they not written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Israel?
13 And Joash slept with his fathers; and Jeroboam sat upon his throne: and Joash was buried in Samaria with the kings of Israel.
14 Now Elisha was fallen sick of his sickness whereof he died. And Joash the king of Israel came down unto him, and wept over his face, and said, O my father, my father, the chariot of Israel, and the horsemen thereof.
15 And Elisha said unto him, Take bow and arrows. And he took unto him bow and arrows.
16 And he said to the king of Israel, Put thine hand upon the bow. And he put his hand upon it: and Elisha put his hands upon the king's hands.
17 And he said, Open the window 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.
18 And he said, Take the arrows. And he took them. And he said unto the king of Israel, Smite upon the ground. And he smote thrice, and stayed.
19 And the man of God was 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.
20 And Elisha died, and they buried him. And the bands of the Moabites invaded the land at the coming in of the year.
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 revived, and stood up on his feet.
22 But Hazael king of Syria oppressed Israel all the days of Jehoahaz.
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 yet.
24 So Hazael king of Syria died; and Benhadad his son reigned in his stead.
25 And Jehoash the son of Jehoahaz took again out of the hand of Benhadad the son of Hazael the cities, which he had taken out of the hand of Jehoahaz his father by war. Three times did Joash beat him, and recovered the cities of Israel.
