2 Chronicles 13


2 Chron 13:1 In the eighteenth year of King Jeroboam, Abijah became king over Judah.
2 Chron 13:2 He reigned three years in Jerusalem; and his mother's name was Micaiah the daughter of Uriel of Gibeah. Now there was war between Abijah and Jeroboam.
2 Chron 13:3 Abijah began the battle with an army of valiant warriors, 400,000 chosen men, while Jeroboam drew up in battle formation against him with 800,000 chosen men who were valiant warriors.
2 Chron 13:4 Then Abijah stood on Mount Zemaraim, which is in the hill country of Ephraim, and said, "Listen to me, Jeroboam and all Israel:
2 Chron 13:5 Do you not know that the Lord God of Israel gave the rule over Israel forever to David and his sons by a covenant of salt?
2 Chron 13:6 Yet Jeroboam the son of Nebat, the servant of Solomon the son of David, rose up and rebelled against his master,
2 Chron 13:7 and worthless men gathered about him, scoundrels, who proved too strong for Rehoboam, the son of Solomon, when he was young and timid and could not hold his own against them.
2 Chron 13:8 "So now you intend to resist the kingdom of the Lord through the sons of David, being a great multitude and having with you the golden calves which Jeroboam made for gods for you.
2 Chron 13:9 Have you not driven out the priests of the Lord, the sons of Aaron and the Levites, and made for yourselves priests like the peoples of other lands? Whoever comes to consecrate himself with a young bull and seven rams, even he may become a priest of what are no gods.
2 Chron 13:10 But as for us, the Lord is our God, and we have not forsaken Him; and the sons of Aaron are ministering to the Lord as priests, and the Levites attend to their work.
2 Chron 13:11 Every morning and evening they burn to the Lord burnt offerings and fragrant incense, and the showbread is set on the clean table, and the golden lampstand with its lamps is ready to light every evening; for we keep the charge of the Lord our God, but you have forsaken Him.
2 Chron 13:12 Now behold, God is with us at our head and His priests with the signal trumpets to sound the alarm against you. O sons of Israel, do not fight against the Lord God of your fathers, for you will not succeed."
2 Chron 13:13 But Jeroboam had set an ambush to come from the rear, so that Israel was in front of Judah and the ambush was behind them.
2 Chron 13:14 When Judah turned around, behold, they were attacked both front and rear; so they cried to the Lord, and the priests blew the trumpets.
2 Chron 13:15 Then the men of Judah raised a war cry, and when the men of Judah raised the war cry, then it was that God routed Jeroboam and all Israel before Abijah and Judah.
2 Chron 13:16 When the sons of Israel fled before Judah, God gave them into their hand.
2 Chron 13:17 Abijah and his people defeated them with a great slaughter, so that 500,000 chosen men of Israel fell slain.
2 Chron 13:18 Thus the sons of Israel were subdued at that time, and the sons of Judah conquered because they trusted in the Lord, the God of their fathers.
2 Chron 13:19 Abijah pursued Jeroboam and captured from him several cities, Bethel with its villages, Jeshanah with its villages and Ephron with its villages.
2 Chron 13:20 Jeroboam did not again recover strength in the days of Abijah; and the Lord struck him and he died.
2 Chron 13:21 But Abijah became powerful; and took fourteen wives to himself, and became the father of twenty-two sons and sixteen daughters.
2 Chron 13:22 Now the rest of the acts of Abijah, and his ways and his words are written in the treatise of the prophet Iddo.

2 Chron 13:5 Ought ye not to know that the LORD God of Israel gave the kingdom over Israel to David for ever, even to him and to his sons by a covenant of salt? 2 Chron 13:5 Do you not know that the Lord God of Israel gave the rule over Israel forever to David and his sons by a covenant of salt? 2 Chron 13:5 οὐχ ὑμῖν γνῶναι ὅτι κύριος ὁ θεὸς Ισραηλ ἔδωκεν βασιλείαν ἐπὶ τὸν Ισραηλ εἰς τὸν αἰῶνα τῷ Δαυιδ καὶ τοῖς υἱοῖς αὐτοῦ διαθήκην ἁλός
2 Chron 13:6 Yet Jeroboam the son of Nebat, the servant of Solomon the son of David, is risen up, and hath rebelled against his lord. 2 Chron 13:6 Yet Jeroboam the son of Nebat, the servant of Solomon the son of David, rose up and rebelled against his master, 2 Chron 13:6 καὶ ἀνέστη Ιεροβοαμ ὁ τοῦ Ναβατ ὁ παῖς Σαλωμων τοῦ Δαυιδ καὶ ἀπέστη ἀπὸ τοῦ κυρίου αὐτοῦ
2 Chron 13:7 And there are gathered unto him vain men, the children of Belial, and have strengthened themselves against Rehoboam the son of Solomon, when Rehoboam was young and tenderhearted, and could not withstand them. 2 Chron 13:7 and worthless men gathered about him, scoundrels, who proved too strong for Rehoboam, the son of Solomon, when he was young and timid and could not hold his own against them. 2 Chron 13:7 καὶ συνήχθησαν πρὸς αὐτὸν ἄνδρες λοιμοὶ υἱοὶ παράνομοι καὶ ἀντέστη πρὸς Ροβοαμ τὸν τοῦ Σαλωμων καὶ Ροβοαμ ἦν νεώτερος καὶ δειλὸς τῇ καρδίᾳ καὶ οὐκ ἀντέστη κατὰ πρόσωπον αὐτοῦ

2 Chron 13:9 Have ye not cast out the priests of the LORD, the sons of Aaron, and the Levites, and have made you priests after the manner of the nations of other lands? so that whosoever cometh to consecrate himself with a young bullock and seven rams, the same may be a priest of them that are no gods. 2 Chron 13:9 Have you not driven out the priests of the Lord, the sons of Aaron and the Levites, and made for yourselves priests like the peoples of other lands? Whoever comes to consecrate himself with a young bull and seven rams, even he may become a priest of what are no gods. 2 Chron 13:9 ἦ οὐκ ἐξεβάλετε τοὺς ἱερεῖς κυρίου τοὺς υἱοὺς Ααρων καὶ τοὺς Λευίτας καὶ ἐποιήσατε ἑαυτοῖς ἱερεῖς ἐκ τοῦ λαοῦ τῆς γῆς πᾶς ὁ προσπορευόμενος πληρῶσαι τὰς χεῖρας ἐν μόσχῳ ἐκ βοῶν καὶ κριοῖς ἑπτὰ καὶ ἐγίνετο εἰς ἱερέα τῷ μὴ ὄντι θεῷ
2 Chron 13:10 But as for us, the LORD is our God, and we have not forsaken him; and the priests, which minister unto the LORD, are the sons of Aaron, and the Levites wait upon their business: 2 Chron 13:10 But as for us, the Lord is our God, and we have not forsaken Him; and the sons of Aaron are ministering to the Lord as priests, and the Levites attend to their work. 2 Chron 13:10 καὶ ἡμεῖς κύριον τὸν θεὸν ἡμῶν οὐκ ἐγκατελίπομεν καὶ οἱ ἱερεῖς αὐτοῦ λειτουργοῦσιν τῷ κυρίῳ οἱ υἱοὶ Ααρων καὶ οἱ Λευῖται ἐν ταῖς ἐφημερίαις αὐτῶν

2 Chron 13:15 Then the men of Judah gave a shout: and as the men of Judah shouted, it came to pass, that God smote Jeroboam and all Israel before Abijah and Judah. 2 Chron 13:15 Then the men of Judah raised a war cry, and when the men of Judah raised the war cry, then it was that God routed Jeroboam and all Israel before Abijah and Judah. 2 Chron 13:15 καὶ ἐβόησαν ἄνδρες Ιουδα καὶ ἐγένετο ἐν τῷ βοᾶν ἄνδρας Ιουδα καὶ κύριος ἐπάταξεν τὸν Ιεροβοαμ καὶ τὸν Ισραηλ ἐναντίον Αβια καὶ Ιουδα
2 Chron 13:16 And the children of Israel fled before Judah: and God delivered them into their hand. 2 Chron 13:16 When the sons of Israel fled before Judah, God gave them into their hand. 2 Chron 13:16 καὶ ἔφυγον οἱ υἱοὶ Ισραηλ ἀπὸ προσώπου Ιουδα καὶ παρέδωκεν αὐτοὺς κύριος εἰς τὰς χεῖρας αὐτῶν

2 Chron 13:18 Thus the children of Israel were brought under at that time, and the children of Judah prevailed, because they relied upon the LORD God of their fathers. 2 Chron 13:18 Thus the sons of Israel were subdued at that time, and the sons of Judah conquered because they trusted in the Lord, the God of their fathers. 2 Chron 13:18 καὶ ἐταπεινώθησαν οἱ υἱοὶ Ισραηλ ἐν τῇ ἡμέρᾳ ἐκείνῃ καὶ κατίσχυσαν οἱ υἱοὶ Ιουδα ὅτι ἤλπισαν ἐπὶ κύριον θεὸν τῶν πατέρων αὐτῶν
