2 Chronicles 20


2 Chron 20:1 Now it came about after this that the sons of Moab and the sons of Ammon, together with some of the Meunites, came to make war against Jehoshaphat.
2 Chron 20:2 Then some came and reported to Jehoshaphat, saying, "A great multitude is coming against you from beyond the sea, out of Aram and behold, they are in Hazazon-tamar (that is Engedi)."
2 Chron 20:3 Jehoshaphat was afraid and turned his attention to seek the Lord, and proclaimed a fast throughout all Judah.
2 Chron 20:4 So Judah gathered together to seek help from the Lord; they even came from all the cities of Judah to seek the Lord.
2 Chron 20:5 Then Jehoshaphat stood in the assembly of Judah and Jerusalem, in the house of the Lord before the new court,
2 Chron 20:6 and he said, "O Lord, the God of our fathers, are You not God in the heavens? And are You not ruler over all the kingdoms of the nations? Power and might are in Your hand so that no one can stand against You.
2 Chron 20:7 Did You not, O our God, drive out the inhabitants of this land before Your people Israel and give it to the descendants of Abraham Your friend forever?
2 Chron 20:8 They have lived in it, and have built You a sanctuary there for Your name, saying,
2 Chron 20:9 'Should evil come upon us, the sword, or judgment, or pestilence, or famine, we will stand before this house and before You (for Your name is in this house) and cry to You in our distress, and You will hear and deliver us.'
2 Chron 20:10 Now behold, the sons of Ammon and Moab and Mount Seir, whom You did not let Israel invade when they came out of the land of Egypt (they turned aside from them and did not destroy them),
2 Chron 20:11 see how they are rewarding us by coming to drive us out from Your possession which You have given us as an inheritance.
2 Chron 20:12 O our God, will You not judge them? For we are powerless before this great multitude who are coming against us; nor do we know what to do, but our eyes are on You."
2 Chron 20:13 All Judah was standing before the Lord, with their infants, their wives and their children.
2 Chron 20:14 Then in the midst of the assembly the Spirit of the Lord came upon Jahaziel the son of Zechariah, the son of Benaiah, the son of Jeiel, the son of Mattaniah, the Levite of the sons of Asaph;
2 Chron 20:15 and he said, "Listen, all Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem and King Jehoshaphat: thus says the Lord to you, 'Do not fear or be dismayed because of this great multitude, for the battle is not yours but God's.
2 Chron 20:16 Tomorrow go down against them. Behold, they will come up by the ascent of Ziz, and you will find them at the end of the valley in front of the wilderness of Jeruel.
2 Chron 20:17 You need not fight in this battle; station yourselves, stand and see the salvation of the Lord on your behalf, O Judah and Jerusalem.' Do not fear or be dismayed; tomorrow go out to face them, for the Lord is with you."
2 Chron 20:18 Jehoshaphat bowed his head with his face to the ground, and all Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem fell down before the Lord, worshiping the Lord.
2 Chron 20:19 The Levites, from the sons of the Kohathites and of the sons of the Korahites, stood up to praise the Lord God of Israel, with a very loud voice.
2 Chron 20:20 They rose early in the morning and went out to the wilderness of Tekoa; and when they went out, Jehoshaphat stood and said, "Listen to me, O Judah and inhabitants of Jerusalem, put your trust in the Lord your God and you will be established. Put your trust in His prophets and succeed."
2 Chron 20:21 When he had consulted with the people, he appointed those who sang to the Lord and those who praised Him in holy attire, as they went out before the army and said, "Give thanks to the Lord, for His lovingkindness is everlasting."
2 Chron 20:22 When they began singing and praising, the Lord set ambushes against the sons of Ammon, Moab and Mount Seir, who had come against Judah; so they were routed.
2 Chron 20:23 For the sons of Ammon and Moab rose up against the inhabitants of Mount Seir destroying them completely; and when they had finished with the inhabitants of Seir, they helped to destroy one another.
2 Chron 20:24 When Judah came to the lookout of the wilderness, they looked toward the multitude, and behold, they were corpses lying on the ground, and no one had escaped.
2 Chron 20:25 When Jehoshaphat and his people came to take their spoil, they found much among them, including goods, garments and valuable things which they took for themselves, more than they could carry. And they were three days taking the spoil because there was so much.
2 Chron 20:26 Then on the fourth day they assembled in the valley of Beracah, for there they blessed the Lord. Therefore they have named that place "The Valley of Beracah" until today.
2 Chron 20:27 Every man of Judah and Jerusalem returned with Jehoshaphat at their head, returning to Jerusalem with joy, for the Lord had made them to rejoice over their enemies.
2 Chron 20:28 They came to Jerusalem with harps, lyres and trumpets to the house of the Lord.
2 Chron 20:29 And the dread of God was on all the kingdoms of the lands when they heard that the Lord had fought against the enemies of Israel.
2 Chron 20:30 So the kingdom of Jehoshaphat was at peace, for his God gave him rest on all sides.
2 Chron 20:31 Now Jehoshaphat reigned over Judah. He was thirty-five years old when he became king, and he reigned in Jerusalem twenty-five years. And his mother's name was Azubah the daughter of Shilhi.
2 Chron 20:32 He walked in the way of his father Asa and did not depart from it, doing right in the sight of the Lord.
2 Chron 20:33 The high places, however, were not removed; the people had not yet directed their hearts to the God of their fathers.
2 Chron 20:34 Now the rest of the acts of Jehoshaphat, first to last, behold, they are written in the annals of Jehu the son of Hanani, which is recorded in the Book of the Kings of Israel.
2 Chron 20:35 After this Jehoshaphat king of Judah allied himself with Ahaziah king of Israel. He acted wickedly in so doing.
2 Chron 20:36 So he allied himself with him to make ships to go to Tarshish, and they made the ships in Ezion-geber.
2 Chron 20:37 Then Eliezer the son of Dodavahu of Mareshah prophesied against Jehoshaphat saying, "Because you have allied yourself with Ahaziah, the Lord has destroyed your works." So the ships were broken and could not go to Tarshish.

2 Chron 20:22 And when they began to sing and to praise, the LORD set ambushments against the children of Ammon, Moab, and mount Seir, which were come against Judah; and they were smitten. 2 Chron 20:22 When they began singing and praising, the Lord set ambushes against the sons of Ammon, Moab and Mount Seir, who had come against Judah; so they were routed. 2 Chron 20:22 καὶ ἐν τῷ ἄρξασθαι τῆς αἰνέσεως αὐτοῦ τῆς ἐξομολογήσεως ἔδωκεν κύριος πολεμεῖν τοὺς υἱοὺς Αμμων ἐπὶ Μωαβ καὶ ὄρος Σηιρ τοὺς ἐξελθόντας ἐπὶ Ιουδαν καὶ ἐτροπώθησαν
2 Chron 20:23 For the children of Ammon and Moab stood up against the inhabitants of mount Seir, utterly to slay and destroy them: and when they had made an end of the inhabitants of Seir, every one helped to destroy another. 2 Chron 20:23 For the sons of Ammon and Moab rose up against the inhabitants of Mount Seir destroying them completely; and when they had finished with the inhabitants of Seir, they helped to destroy one another. 2 Chron 20:23 καὶ ἀνέστησαν οἱ υἱοὶ Αμμων καὶ Μωαβ ἐπὶ τοὺς κατοικοῦντας ὄρος Σηιρ ἐξολεθρεῦσαι καὶ ἐκτρῖψαι καὶ ὡς συνετέλεσαν τοὺς κατοικοῦντας Σηιρ ἀνέστησαν εἰς ἀλλήλους τοῦ ἐξολεθρευθῆναι

2 Chron 20:25 And when Jehoshaphat and his people came to take away the spoil of them, they found among them in abundance both riches with the dead bodies, and precious jewels, which they stripped off for themselves, more than they could carry away: and they were three days in gathering of the spoil, it was so much. 2 Chron 20:25 When Jehoshaphat and his people came to take their spoil, they found much among them, including goods, garments and valuable things which they took for themselves, more than they could carry.

2 Chron 20:26 And on the fourth day they assembled themselves in the valley of Berachah; for there they blessed the LORD: therefore the name of the same place was called, The valley of Berachah, unto this day. 2 Chron 20:26 Then on the fourth day they assembled in the valley of Beracah, for there they blessed the Lord. Therefore they have named that place "The Valley of Beracah" until today. 2 Chron 20:26 καὶ τῇ ἡμέρᾳ τῇ τετάρτῃ ἐπισυνήχθησαν εἰς τὸν αὐλῶνα τῆς εὐλογίας ἐκεῖ γὰρ ηὐλόγησαν τὸν κύριον διὰ τοῦτο ἐκάλεσαν τὸ ὄνομα τοῦ τόπου ἐκείνου Κοιλὰς εὐλογίας ἕως τῆς ἡμέρας ταύτης
2 Chron 20:27 Then they returned, every man of Judah and Jerusalem, and Jehoshaphat in the forefront of them, to go again to Jerusalem with joy; for the LORD had made them to rejoice over their enemies. 2 Chron 20:27 Every man of Judah and Jerusalem returned with Jehoshaphat at their head, returning to Jerusalem with joy, for the Lord had made them to rejoice over their enemies. 2 Chron 20:27 καὶ ἐπέστρεψεν πᾶς ἀνὴρ Ιουδα εἰς Ιερουσαλημ καὶ Ιωσαφατ ἡγούμενος αὐτῶν ἐν εὐφροσύνῃ μεγάλῃ ὅτι εὔφρανεν αὐτοὺς κύριος ἀπὸ τῶν ἐχθρῶν αὐτῶν
2 Chron 20:28 And they came to Jerusalem with psalteries and harps and trumpets unto the house of the LORD. 2 Chron 20:28 They came to Jerusalem with harps, lyres and trumpets to the house of the Lord. 2 Chron 20:28 καὶ εἰσῆλθον εἰς Ιερουσαλημ ἐν νάβλαις καὶ ἐν κινύραις καὶ ἐν σάλπιγξιν εἰς οἶκον κυρίου
2 Chron 20:29 And the fear of God was on all the kingdoms of those countries, when they had heard that the LORD fought against the enemies of Israel. 2 Chron 20:29 And the dread of God was on all the kingdoms of the lands when they heard that the Lord had fought against the enemies of Israel. 2 Chron 20:29 καὶ ἐγένετο ἔκστασις κυρίου ἐπὶ πάσας τὰς βασιλείας τῆς γῆς ἐν τῷ ἀκοῦσαι αὐτοὺς ὅτι ἐπολέμησεν κύριος πρὸς τοὺς ὑπεναντίους Ισραηλ
2 Chron 20:30 So the realm of Jehoshaphat was quiet: for his God gave him rest round about. 2 Chron 20:30 So the kingdom of Jehoshaphat was at peace, for his God gave him rest on all sides. 2 Chron 20:30 καὶ εἰρήνευσεν ἡ βασιλεία Ιωσαφατ καὶ κατέπαυσεν αὐτῷ ὁ θεὸς αὐτοῦ κυκλόθεν
2 Chron 20:31 And Jehoshaphat reigned over Judah: he was thirty and five years old when he began to reign, and he reigned twenty and five years in Jerusalem. And his mother's name was Azubah the daughter of Shilhi. 2 Chron 20:31 Now Jehoshaphat reigned over Judah. He was thirty-five years old when he became king, and he reigned in Jerusalem twenty-five years. And his mother's name was Azubah the daughter of Shilhi. 2 Chron 20:31 καὶ ἐβασίλευσεν Ιωσαφατ ἐπὶ τὸν Ιουδαν ἐτῶν τριάκοντα πέντε ἐν τῷ βασιλεῦσαι αὐτὸν καὶ εἴκοσι πέντε ἔτη ἐβασίλευσεν ἐν Ιερουσαλημ καὶ ὄνομα τῇ μητρὶ αὐτοῦ Αζουβα θυγάτηρ Σαλι
2 Chron 20:32 And he walked in the way of Asa his father, and departed not from it, doing that which was right in the sight of the LORD. 2 Chron 20:32 He walked in the way of his father Asa and did not depart from it, doing right in the sight of the Lord. 2 Chron 20:32 καὶ ἐπορεύθη ἐν ταῖς ὁδοῖς τοῦ πατρὸς αὐτοῦ Ασα καὶ οὐκ ἐξέκλινεν τοῦ ποιῆσαι τὸ εὐθὲς ἐνώπιον κυρίου
2 Chron 20:33 Howbeit the high places were not taken away: for as yet the people had not prepared their hearts unto the God of their fathers. 2 Chron 20:33 The high places, however, were not removed; the people had not yet directed their hearts to the God of their fathers. 2 Chron 20:33 ἀλλὰ τὰ ὑψηλὰ ἔτι ὑπῆρχεν καὶ ἔτι ὁ λαὸς οὐ κατεύθυνεν τὴν καρδίαν πρὸς κύριον θεὸν τῶν πατέρων αὐτῶν
2 Chron 20:34 Now the rest of the acts of Jehoshaphat, first and last, behold, they are written in the book of Jehu the son of Hanani, who is mentioned in the book of the kings of Israel. 2 Chron 20:34 Now the rest of the acts of Jehoshaphat, first to last, behold, they are written in the annals of Jehu the son of Hanani, which is recorded in the Book of the Kings of Israel. 2 Chron 20:34 καὶ οἱ λοιποὶ λόγοι Ιωσαφατ οἱ πρῶτοι καὶ οἱ ἔσχατοι ἰδοὺ γεγραμμένοι ἐν λόγοις Ιου τοῦ Ανανι ὃς κατέγραψεν βιβλίον βασιλέων Ισραηλ
2 Chron 20:35 And after this did Jehoshaphat king of Judah join himself with Ahaziah king of Israel, who did very wickedly: 2 Chron 20:35 After this Jehoshaphat king of Judah allied himself with Ahaziah king of Israel. He acted wickedly in so doing. 2 Chron 20:35 καὶ μετὰ ταῦτα ἐκοινώνησεν Ιωσαφατ βασιλεὺς Ιουδα πρὸς Οχοζιαν βασιλέα Ισραηλ καὶ οὗτος ἠνόμησεν
2 Chron 20:36 And he joined himself with him to make ships to go to Tarshish: and they made the ships in Eziongaber. 2 Chron 20:36 So he allied himself with him to make ships to go to Tarshish, and they made the ships in Ezion-geber. 2 Chron 20:36 ἐν τῷ ποιῆσαι καὶ πορευθῆναι πρὸς αὐτὸν τοῦ ποιῆσαι πλοῖα τοῦ πορευθῆναι εἰς Θαρσις καὶ ἐποίησεν πλοῖα ἐν Γασιωνγαβερ
2 Chron 20:37 Then Eliezer the son of Dodavah of Mareshah prophesied against Jehoshaphat, saying, Because thou hast joined thyself with Ahaziah, the LORD hath broken thy works. And the ships were broken, that they were not able to go to Tarshish. 2 Chron 20:37 Then Eliezer the son of Dodavahu of Mareshah prophesied against Jehoshaphat saying, "Because you have allied yourself with Ahaziah, the Lord has destroyed your works." So the ships were broken and could not go to Tarshish. 2 Chron 20:37 καὶ ἐπροφήτευσεν Ελιεζερ ὁ τοῦ Δωδια ἀπὸ Μαρισης ἐπὶ Ιωσαφατ λέγων ὡς ἐφιλίασας τῷ Οχοζια ἔθραυσεν κύριος τὸ ἔργον σου καὶ συνετρίβη τὰ πλοῖά σου καὶ οὐκ ἐδυνάσθη τοῦ πορευθῆναι εἰς Θαρσις
