13:1 Now in the eighteenth [H8083] [H6240] year [H8141] of king [H4428] Jeroboam [H3379] began Abijah [H29] to reign [H4427] over Judah [H3063] .

13:2 He reigned [H4427] three [H7969] years [H8141] in Jerusalem [H3389] . His mother's [H517] name [H8034] also [was] Michaiah [H4322] the daughter [H1323] of Uriel [H222] of Gibeah [H1390] . And there was war [H4421] between Abijah [H29] and Jeroboam [H3379] .

13:3 And Abijah [H29] set [H631] the battle [H4421] in array [H631] with an army [H2428] of valiant men [H1368] of war [H4421] , [even] four [H702] hundred [H3967] thousand [H505] chosen [H977] men [H376] : Jeroboam [H3379] also set the battle [H4421] in array [H6186] against him with eight [H8083] hundred [H3967] thousand [H505] chosen [H977] men [H376] , [being] mighty men [H1368] of valour [H2428] .(Abijah set: Heb. Abijah bound together)

13:4 And Abijah [H29] stood up [H6965] upon mount [H2022] Zemaraim [H6787] , which [is] in mount [H2022] Ephraim [H669] , and said [H559] , Hear [H8085] me, thou Jeroboam [H3379] , and all Israel [H3478] ;

13:5 Ought ye not to know [H3045] that the LORD [H3068] God [H430] of Israel [H3478] gave [H5414] the kingdom [H4467] over Israel [H3478] to David [H1732] for ever [H5769] , [even] to him and to his sons [H1121] by a covenant [H1285] of salt [H4417] ?

13:6 Yet Jeroboam [H3379] the son [H1121] of Nebat [H5028] , the servant [H5650] of Solomon [H8010] the son [H1121] of David [H1732] , is risen up [H6965] , and hath rebelled [H4775] against his lord [H113] .

13:7 And there are gathered [H6908] unto him vain [H7386] men [H582] , the children [H1121] of Belial [H1100] , and have strengthened [H553] themselves against Rehoboam [H7346] the son [H1121] of Solomon [H8010] , when Rehoboam [H7346] was young [H5288] and tenderhearted [H7390] [H3824] , and could not withstand [H2388] them [H6440] .

13:8 And now ye think [H559] to withstand [H2388] the kingdom [H6440] [H4467] of the LORD [H3068] in the hand [H3027] of the sons [H1121] of David [H1732] ; and ye [be] a great [H7227] multitude [H1995] , and [there are] with you golden [H2091] calves [H5695] , which Jeroboam [H3379] made [H6213] you for gods [H430] .

13:9 Have ye not cast out [H5080] the priests [H3548] of the LORD [H3068] , the sons [H1121] of Aaron [H175] , and the Levites [H3881] , and have made [H6213] you priests [H3548] after the manner of the nations [H5971] of [other] lands [H776] ? so that whosoever cometh [H935] to consecrate [H4390] [H3027] himself with a young [H1121] [H1241] bullock [H6499] and seven [H7651] rams [H352] , [the same] may be a priest [H3548] of [them that are] no [H3808] gods [H430] .(to consecrate: Heb. to fill his hand)

13:10 But as for us, the LORD [H3068] [is] our God [H430] , and we have not forsaken [H5800] him; and the priests [H3548] , which minister [H8334] unto the LORD [H3068] , [are] the sons [H1121] of Aaron [H175] , and the Levites [H3881] [wait] upon [their] business [H4399] :

13:11 And they burn [H6999] unto the LORD [H3068] every morning [H1242] and every evening [H6153] burnt sacrifices [H5930] and sweet [H5561] incense [H7004] : the shewbread [H3899] [H4635] also [set they in order] upon the pure [H2889] table [H7979] ; and the candlestick [H4501] of gold [H2091] with the lamps [H5216] thereof, to burn [H1197] every evening [H6153] : for we keep [H8104] the charge [H4931] of the LORD [H3068] our God [H430] ; but ye have forsaken [H5800] him.

13:12 And, behold, God [H430] himself [is] with us for [our] captain [H7218] , and his priests [H3548] with sounding [H8643] trumpets [H2689] to cry alarm [H7321] against you. O children [H1121] of Israel [H3478] , fight [H3898] ye not against the LORD [H3068] God [H430] of your fathers [H1] ; for ye shall not prosper [H6743] .

13:13 But Jeroboam [H3379] caused an ambushment [H3993] to come [H935] about [H5437] behind [H310] them: so they were before [H6440] Judah [H3063] , and the ambushment [H3993] [was] behind [H310] them.

13:14 And when Judah [H3063] looked back [H6437] , behold, the battle [H4421] [was] before [H6440] and behind [H268] : and they cried [H6817] unto the LORD [H3068] , and the priests [H3548] sounded [H2690] [H2690] with the trumpets [H2689] .

13:15 Then the men [H376] of Judah [H3063] gave a shout [H7321] : and as the men [H376] of Judah [H3063] shouted [H7321] , it came to pass, that God [H430] smote [H5062] Jeroboam [H3379] and all Israel [H3478] before [H6440] Abijah [H29] and Judah [H3063] .

13:16 And the children [H1121] of Israel [H3478] fled [H5127] before [H6440] Judah [H3063] : and God [H430] delivered [H5414] them into their hand [H3027] .

13:17 And Abijah [H29] and his people [H5971] slew [H5221] them with a great [H7227] slaughter [H4347] : so there fell down [H5307] slain [H2491] of Israel [H3478] five [H2568] hundred [H3967] thousand [H505] chosen [H977] men [H376] .

13:18 Thus the children [H1121] of Israel [H3478] were brought [H3665] under at that time [H6256] , and the children [H1121] of Judah [H3063] prevailed [H553] , because they relied [H8172] upon the LORD [H3068] God [H430] of their fathers [H1] .

13:19 And Abijah [H29] pursued [H7291] after [H310] Jeroboam [H3379] , and took [H3920] cities [H5892] from him, Bethel [H1008] with the towns [H1323] thereof, and Jeshanah [H3466] with the towns [H1323] thereof, and Ephrain [H6085] with the towns [H1323] thereof.

13:20 Neither did Jeroboam [H3379] recover [H6113] strength [H3581] again in the days [H3117] of Abijah [H29] : and the LORD [H3068] struck [H5062] him, and he died [H4191] .

13:21 But Abijah [H29] waxed mighty [H2388] , and married [H5375] fourteen [H702] [H6240] wives [H802] , and begat [H3205] twenty [H6242] and two [H8147] sons [H1121] , and sixteen [H8337] [H6240] daughters [H1323] .

13:22 And the rest [H3499] of the acts [H1697] of Abijah [H29] , and his ways [H1870] , and his sayings [H1697] , [are] written [H3789] in the story [H4097] of the prophet [H5030] Iddo [H5714] .
