25:1 Amaziah [H558] [was] twenty [H6242] and five [H2568] years [H8141] old [H1121] [when] he began to reign [H4427] , and he reigned [H4427] twenty [H6242] and nine [H8672] years [H8141] in Jerusalem [H3389] . And his mother's [H517] name [H8034] [was] Jehoaddan [H3086] of Jerusalem [H3389] .

25:2 And he did [H6213] [that which was] right [H3477] in the sight [H5869] of the LORD [H3068] , but not with a perfect [H8003] heart [H3824] .

25:3 Now it came to pass, when the kingdom [H4467] was established [H2388] to him, that he slew [H2026] his servants [H5650] that had killed [H5221] the king [H4428] his father [H1] .(established: Heb. confirmed upon him)

25:4 But he slew [H4191] not their children [H1121] , but [did] as [it is] written [H3789] in the law [H8451] in the book [H5612] of Moses [H4872] , where the LORD [H3068] commanded [H6680] , saying [H559] , The fathers [H1] shall not die [H4191] for the children [H1121] , neither shall the children [H1121] die [H4191] for the fathers [H1] , but every man [H376] shall die [H4191] for his own sin [H2399] .

25:5 Moreover Amaziah [H558] gathered [H6908] Judah [H3063] together [H6908] , and made [H5975] them captains [H8269] over thousands [H505] , and captains [H8269] over hundreds [H3967] , according to the houses [H1004] of [their] fathers [H1] , throughout all Judah [H3063] and Benjamin [H1144] : and he numbered [H6485] them from twenty [H6242] years [H8141] old [H1121] and above [H4605] , and found [H4672] them three [H7969] hundred [H3967] thousand [H505] choice [H977] [men, able] to go forth [H3318] to war [H6635] , that could handle [H270] spear [H7420] and shield [H6793] .

25:6 He hired [H7936] also an hundred [H3967] thousand [H505] mighty [H1368] men of valour [H2428] out of Israel [H3478] for an hundred [H3967] talents [H3603] of silver [H3701] .

25:7 But there came [H935] a man [H376] of God [H430] to him, saying [H559] , O king [H4428] , let not the army [H6635] of Israel [H3478] go [H935] with thee; for the LORD [H3068] [is] not with Israel [H3478] , [to wit, with] all the children [H1121] of Ephraim [H669] .

25:8 But if thou wilt go [H935] , do [H6213] [it], be strong [H2388] for the battle [H4421] : God [H430] shall make thee fall [H3782] before [H6440] the enemy [H341] : for God [H430] hath [H3426] power [H3581] to help [H5826] , and to cast down [H3782] .

25:9 And Amaziah [H558] said [H559] to the man [H376] of God [H430] , But what shall we do [H6213] for the hundred [H3967] talents [H3603] which I have given [H5414] to the army [H1416] of Israel [H3478] ? And the man [H376] of God [H430] answered [H559] , The LORD [H3068] is [H3426] able to give [H5414] thee much more [H7235] than this.(army: Heb. band)

25:10 Then Amaziah [H558] separated [H914] them, [to wit], the army [H1416] that was come [H935] to him out of Ephraim [H669] , to go [H3212] home [H4725] again [H3212] : wherefore their anger [H639] was greatly [H3966] kindled [H2734] against Judah [H3063] , and they returned [H7725] home [H4725] in great [H2750] anger [H639] .(home again: Heb. to their place)(in great: Heb. in heat of anger)

25:11 And Amaziah [H558] strengthened [H2388] himself, and led forth [H5090] his people [H5971] , and went [H3212] to the valley [H1516] of salt [H4417] , and smote [H5221] of the children [H1121] of Seir [H8165] ten [H6235] thousand [H505] .

25:12 And [other] ten [H6235] thousand [H505] [left] alive [H2416] did the children [H1121] of Judah [H3063] carry away captive [H7617] , and brought [H935] them unto the top [H7218] of the rock [H5553] , and cast them down [H7993] from the top [H7218] of the rock [H5553] , that they all were broken in pieces [H1234] .

25:13 But the soldiers [H1121] of the army [H1416] which Amaziah [H558] sent back [H7725] , that they should not go [H3212] with him to battle [H4421] , fell [H6584] upon the cities [H5892] of Judah [H3063] , from Samaria [H8111] even unto Bethhoron [H1032] , and smote [H5221] three [H7969] thousand [H505] of them, and took [H962] much [H7227] spoil [H961] .(the soldiers: Heb. the sons of the band)

25:14 Now it came to pass, after [H310] that Amaziah [H558] was come [H935] from the slaughter [H5221] of the Edomites [H130] , that he brought [H935] the gods [H430] of the children [H1121] of Seir [H8165] , and set them up [H5975] [to be] his gods [H430] , and bowed down [H7812] himself before [H6440] them, and burned incense [H6999] unto them.

25:15 Wherefore the anger [H639] of the LORD [H3068] was kindled [H2734] against Amaziah [H558] , and he sent [H7971] unto him a prophet [H5030] , which said [H559] unto him, Why hast thou sought [H1875] after the gods [H430] of the people [H5971] , which could not deliver [H5337] their own people [H5971] out of thine hand [H3027] ?

25:16 And it came to pass, as he talked [H1696] with him, that [the king] said [H559] unto him, Art thou made [H5414] of the king's [H4428] counsel [H3289] ? forbear [H2308] ; why shouldest thou be smitten [H5221] ? Then the prophet [H5030] forbare [H2308] , and said [H559] , I know [H3045] that God [H430] hath determined [H3289] to destroy [H7843] thee, because thou hast done [H6213] this, and hast not hearkened [H8085] unto my counsel [H6098] .(determined: Heb. counselled)

25:17 Then Amaziah [H558] king [H4428] of Judah [H3063] took advice [H3289] , and sent [H7971] to Joash [H3101] , the son [H1121] of Jehoahaz [H3059] , the son [H1121] of Jehu [H3058] , king [H4428] of Israel [H3478] , saying [H559] , Come [H3212] , let us see one another [H7200] in the face [H6440] .

25:18 And Joash [H3101] king [H4428] of Israel [H3478] sent [H7971] to Amaziah [H558] king [H4428] of Judah [H3063] , saying [H559] , The thistle [H2336] that [was] in Lebanon [H3844] sent [H7971] to the cedar [H730] that [was] in Lebanon [H3844] , saying [H559] , Give [H5414] thy daughter [H1323] to my son [H1121] to wife [H802] : and there passed by [H5674] a wild [H7704] beast [H2416] that [was] in Lebanon [H3844] , and trode down [H7429] the thistle [H2336] .(thistle: or, furze bush, or, thorn)(a wild: Heb. a beast of the field)

25:19 Thou sayest [H559] , Lo, thou hast smitten [H5221] the Edomites [H123] ; and thine heart [H3820] lifteth thee up [H5375] to boast [H3513] : abide [H3427] now at home [H1004] ; why shouldest thou meddle [H1624] to [thine] hurt [H7451] , that thou shouldest fall [H5307] , [even] thou, and Judah [H3063] with thee?

25:20 But Amaziah [H558] would not hear [H8085] ; for it [came] of God [H430] , that he might deliver [H5414] them into the hand [H3027] [of their enemies], because they sought [H1875] after the gods [H430] of Edom [H123] .

25:21 So Joash [H3101] the king [H4428] of Israel [H3478] went up [H5927] ; and they saw one another [H7200] in the face [H6440] , [both] he and Amaziah [H558] king [H4428] of Judah [H3063] , at Bethshemesh [H1053] , which [belongeth] to Judah [H3063] .

25:22 And Judah [H3063] was put to the worse [H5062] before [H6440] Israel [H3478] , and they fled [H5127] every man [H376] to his tent [H168] .(put: Heb. smitten)

25:23 And Joash [H3101] the king [H4428] of Israel [H3478] took [H8610] Amaziah [H558] king [H4428] of Judah [H3063] , the son [H1121] of Joash [H3101] , the son [H1121] of Jehoahaz [H3059] , at Bethshemesh [H1053] , and brought [H935] him to Jerusalem [H3389] , and brake down [H6555] the wall [H2346] of Jerusalem [H3389] from the gate [H8179] of Ephraim [H669] to the corner [H6437] gate [H8179] , four [H702] hundred [H3967] cubits [H520] .(the corner: Heb. the gate of it that looketh)

25:24 And [he took] all the gold [H2091] and the silver [H3701] , and all the vessels [H3627] that were found [H4672] in the house [H1004] of God [H430] with Obededom [H5654] , and the treasures [H214] of the king's [H4428] house [H1004] , the hostages [H1121] [H8594] also, and returned [H7725] to Samaria [H8111] .

25:25 And Amaziah [H558] the son [H1121] of Joash [H3101] king [H4428] of Judah [H3063] lived [H2421] after [H310] the death [H4194] of Joash [H3101] son [H1121] of Jehoahaz [H3059] king [H4428] of Israel [H3478] fifteen [H2568] [H6240] years [H8141] .

25:26 Now the rest [H3499] of the acts [H1697] of Amaziah [H558] , first [H7223] and last [H314] , behold, [are] they not written [H3789] in the book [H5612] of the kings [H4428] of Judah [H3063] and Israel [H3478] ?

25:27 Now after the time [H6256] that Amaziah [H558] did turn away [H5493] from following [H310] the LORD [H3068] they made [H7194] a conspiracy [H7195] against him in Jerusalem [H3389] ; and he fled [H5127] to Lachish [H3923] : but they sent [H7971] to Lachish [H3923] after [H310] him, and slew [H4191] him there.(from: Heb. from after)(made: Heb. conspired a conspiracy)

25:28 And they brought [H5375] him upon horses [H5483] , and buried [H6912] him with his fathers [H1] in the city [H5892] of Judah [H3063] .(Judah: that is, the city of David)
