21:1 Now Jehoshaphat [H3092] slept [H7901] with his fathers [H1] , and was buried [H6912] with his fathers [H1] in the city [H5892] of David [H1732] . And Jehoram [H3088] his son [H1121] reigned [H4427] in his stead.

21:2 And he had brethren [H251] the sons [H1121] of Jehoshaphat [H3092] , Azariah [H5838] , and Jehiel [H3171] , and Zechariah [H2148] , and Azariah [H5838] , and Michael [H4317] , and Shephatiah [H8203] : all these [were] the sons [H1121] of Jehoshaphat [H3092] king [H4428] of Israel [H3478] .

21:3 And their father [H1] gave [H5414] them great [H7227] gifts [H4979] of silver [H3701] , and of gold [H2091] , and of precious things [H4030] , with fenced [H4694] cities [H5892] in Judah [H3063] : but the kingdom [H4467] gave [H5414] he to Jehoram [H3088] ; because he [was] the firstborn [H1060] .

21:4 Now when Jehoram [H3088] was risen up [H6965] to the kingdom [H4467] of his father [H1] , he strengthened [H2388] himself, and slew [H2026] all his brethren [H251] with the sword [H2719] , and [divers] also of the princes [H8269] of Israel [H3478] .

21:5 Jehoram [H3088] [was] thirty [H7970] and two [H8147] years [H8141] old [H1121] when he began to reign [H4427] , and he reigned [H4427] eight [H8083] years [H8141] in Jerusalem [H3389] .

21:6 And he walked [H3212] in the way [H1870] of the kings [H4428] of Israel [H3478] , like as did [H6213] the house [H1004] of Ahab [H256] : for he had the daughter [H1323] of Ahab [H256] to wife [H802] : and he wrought [H6213] [that which was] evil [H7451] in the eyes [H5869] of the LORD [H3068] .

21:7 Howbeit the LORD [H3068] would [H14] not destroy [H7843] the house [H1004] of David [H1732] , because of the covenant [H1285] that he had made [H3772] with David [H1732] , and as he promised [H559] to give [H5414] a light [H5216] to him and to his sons [H1121] for ever [H3117] .(light: Heb. lamp, or, candle)

21:8 In his days [H3117] the Edomites [H123] revolted [H6586] from under the dominion [H3027] of Judah [H3063] , and made [H4427] themselves a king [H4428] .(dominion: Heb. hand)

21:9 Then Jehoram [H3088] went forth [H5674] with his princes [H8269] , and all his chariots [H7393] with him: and he rose up [H6965] by night [H3915] , and smote [H5221] the Edomites [H123] which compassed him in [H5437] , and the captains [H8269] of the chariots [H7393] .

21:10 So the Edomites [H123] revolted [H6586] from under the hand [H3027] of Judah [H3063] unto this day [H3117] . The same time [H6256] [also] did Libnah [H3841] revolt [H6586] from under his hand [H3027] ; because he had forsaken [H5800] the LORD [H3068] God [H430] of his fathers [H1] .

21:11 Moreover he made [H6213] high places [H1116] in the mountains [H2022] of Judah [H3063] , and caused the inhabitants [H3427] of Jerusalem [H3389] to commit fornication [H2181] , and compelled [H5080] Judah [H3063] [thereto].

21:12 And there came [H935] a writing [H4385] to him from Elijah [H452] the prophet [H5030] , saying [H559] , Thus saith [H559] the LORD [H3068] God [H430] of David [H1732] thy father [H1] , Because thou hast not walked [H1980] in the ways [H1870] of Jehoshaphat [H3092] thy father [H1] , nor in the ways [H1870] of Asa [H609] king [H4428] of Judah [H3063] ,

21:13 But hast walked [H3212] in the way [H1870] of the kings [H4428] of Israel [H3478] , and hast made Judah [H3063] and the inhabitants [H3427] of Jerusalem [H3389] to go a whoring [H2181] , like to the whoredoms [H2181] of the house [H1004] of Ahab [H256] , and also hast slain [H2026] thy brethren [H251] of thy father's [H1] house [H1004] , [which were] better [H2896] than thyself:

21:14 Behold, with a great [H1419] plague [H4046] will the LORD [H3068] smite [H5062] thy people [H5971] , and thy children [H1121] , and thy wives [H802] , and all thy goods [H7399] :(a great: Heb. a great stroke)

21:15 And thou [shalt have] great [H7227] sickness [H2483] by disease [H4245] of thy bowels [H4578] , until thy bowels [H4578] fall out [H3318] by reason of the sickness [H2483] day [H3117] by day [H3117] .

21:16 Moreover the LORD [H3068] stirred up [H5782] against Jehoram [H3088] the spirit [H7307] of the Philistines [H6430] , and of the Arabians [H6163] , that [were] near [H5921] [H3027] the Ethiopians [H3569] :

21:17 And they came up [H5927] into Judah [H3063] , and brake [H1234] into it, and carried away [H7617] all the substance [H7399] that was found [H4672] in the king's [H4428] house [H1004] , and his sons [H1121] also, and his wives [H802] ; so that there was never a son [H1121] left [H7604] him, save Jehoahaz [H3059] , the youngest [H6996] of his sons [H1121] .(carried: Heb. carried captive)(Jehoahaz: also called, Ahaziah, Chap.22.I. or, Azariah, ver.6.)

21:18 And after [H310] all this the LORD [H3068] smote [H5062] him in his bowels [H4578] with an incurable [H369] [H4832] disease [H2483] .

21:19 And it came to pass, that in process of time [H3117] , after [H3318] [H6256] the end [H7093] of two [H8147] years [H3117] , his bowels [H4578] fell out [H3318] by reason [H5973] of his sickness [H2483] : so he died [H4191] of sore [H7451] diseases [H8463] . And his people [H5971] made [H6213] no burning [H8316] for him, like the burning [H8316] of his fathers [H1] .

21:20 Thirty [H7970] and two [H8147] years old [H1121] was he when he began to reign [H4427] , and he reigned [H4427] in Jerusalem [H3389] eight [H8083] years [H8141] , and departed [H3212] without being desired [H2532] . Howbeit they buried [H6912] him in the city [H5892] of David [H1732] , but not in the sepulchres [H6913] of the kings [H4428] .(without: Heb. without desire)
