3:1 Now Jehoram [H3088] the son [H1121] of Ahab [H256] began to reign [H4427] over Israel [H3478] in Samaria [H8111] the eighteenth [H8083] [H6240] year [H8141] of Jehoshaphat [H3092] king [H4428] of Judah [H3063] , and reigned [H4427] twelve [H8147] [H6240] years [H8141] .

3:2 And he wrought [H6213] evil [H7451] in the sight [H5869] of the LORD [H3068] ; but not like his father [H1] , and like his mother [H517] : for he put away [H5493] the image [H4676] of Baal [H1168] that his father [H1] had made [H6213] .(image: Heb. statue)

3:3 Nevertheless he cleaved [H1692] unto the sins [H2403] of Jeroboam [H3379] the son [H1121] of Nebat [H5028] , which made Israel [H3478] to sin [H2398] ; he departed [H5493] not therefrom.

3:4 And Mesha [H4338] king [H4428] of Moab [H4124] was a sheepmaster [H5349] , and rendered [H7725] unto the king [H4428] of Israel [H3478] an hundred [H3967] thousand [H505] lambs [H3733] , and an hundred [H3967] thousand [H505] rams [H352] , with the wool [H6785] .

3:5 But it came to pass, when Ahab [H256] was dead [H4194] , that the king [H4428] of Moab [H4124] rebelled [H6586] against the king [H4428] of Israel [H3478] .

3:6 And king [H4428] Jehoram [H3088] went out [H3318] of Samaria [H8111] the same time [H3117] , and numbered [H6485] all Israel [H3478] .

3:7 And he went [H3212] and sent [H7971] to Jehoshaphat [H3092] the king [H4428] of Judah [H3063] , saying [H559] , The king [H4428] of Moab [H4124] hath rebelled [H6586] against me: wilt thou go [H3212] with me against Moab [H4124] to battle [H4421] ? And he said [H559] , I will go up [H5927] : I [am] as thou [art], my people [H5971] as thy people [H5971] , [and] my horses [H5483] as thy horses [H5483] .

3:8 And he said [H559] , Which way [H1870] shall we go up [H5927] ? And he answered [H559] , The way [H1870] through the wilderness [H4057] of Edom [H123] .

3:9 So the king [H4428] of Israel [H3478] went [H3212] , and the king [H4428] of Judah [H3063] , and the king [H4428] of Edom [H123] : and they fetched a compass [H5437] of seven [H7651] days' [H3117] journey [H1870] : and there was no water [H4325] for the host [H4264] , and for the cattle [H929] that followed [H7272] them.(that: Heb. at their feet)

3:10 And the king [H4428] of Israel [H3478] said [H559] , Alas [H162] ! that the LORD [H3068] hath called [H7121] these three [H7969] kings [H4428] together [H7121] , to deliver [H5414] them into the hand [H3027] of Moab [H4124] !

3:11 But Jehoshaphat [H3092] said [H559] , [Is there] not here a prophet [H5030] of the LORD [H3068] , that we may enquire [H1875] of the LORD [H3068] by him? And one [H259] of the king [H4428] of Israel's [H3478] servants [H5650] answered [H6030] and said [H559] , Here [is] Elisha [H477] the son [H1121] of Shaphat [H8202] , which poured [H3332] water [H4325] on the hands [H3027] of Elijah [H452] .

3:12 And Jehoshaphat [H3092] said [H559] , The word [H1697] of the LORD [H3068] is [H3426] with him. So the king [H4428] of Israel [H3478] and Jehoshaphat [H3092] and the king [H4428] of Edom [H123] went down [H3381] to him.

3:13 And Elisha [H477] said [H559] unto the king [H4428] of Israel [H3478] , What have I to do with thee? get [H3212] thee to the prophets [H5030] of thy father [H1] , and to the prophets [H5030] of thy mother [H517] . And the king [H4428] of Israel [H3478] said [H559] unto him, Nay: for the LORD [H3068] hath called [H7121] these three [H7969] kings [H4428] together [H7121] , to deliver [H5414] them into the hand [H3027] of Moab [H4124] .

3:14 And Elisha [H477] said [H559] , [As] the LORD [H3068] of hosts [H6635] liveth [H2416] , before [H6440] whom I stand [H5975] , surely, were it not that [H3884] I regard [H5375] the presence [H6440] of Jehoshaphat [H3092] the king [H4428] of Judah [H3063] , I would not look [H5027] toward thee, nor see [H7200] thee.

3:15 But now bring [H3947] me a minstrel [H5059] . And it came to pass, when the minstrel [H5059] played [H5059] , that the hand [H3027] of the LORD [H3068] came upon him.

3:16 And he said [H559] , Thus saith [H559] the LORD [H3068] , Make [H6213] this valley [H5158] full of ditches [H1356] .

3:17 For thus saith [H559] the LORD [H3068] , Ye shall not see [H7200] wind [H7307] , neither shall ye see [H7200] rain [H1653] ; yet that valley [H5158] shall be filled [H4390] with water [H4325] , that ye may drink [H8354] , both ye, and your cattle [H4735] , and your beasts [H929] .

3:18 And this is [but] a light thing [H7043] in the sight [H5869] of the LORD [H3068] : he will deliver [H5414] the Moabites [H4124] also into your hand [H3027] .

3:19 And ye shall smite [H5221] every fenced [H4013] city [H5892] , and every choice [H4004] city [H5892] , and shall fell [H5307] every good [H2896] tree [H6086] , and stop [H5640] all wells [H4599] of water [H4325] , and mar [H3510] every good [H2896] piece [H2513] of land with stones [H68] .(mar: Heb. grieve)

3:20 And it came to pass in the morning [H1242] , when the meat offering [H4503] was offered [H5927] , that, behold, there came [H935] water [H4325] by the way [H1870] of Edom [H123] , and the country [H776] was filled [H4390] with water [H4325] .

3:21 And when all the Moabites [H4124] heard [H8085] that the kings [H4428] were come up [H5927] to fight [H3898] against them, they gathered [H6817] all that were able to put [H2296] on armour [H2290] , and upward [H4605] , and stood [H5975] in the border [H1366] .(gathered: Heb. were cried together)(put on: Heb. gird himself with a girdle)

3:22 And they rose up early [H7925] in the morning [H1242] , and the sun [H8121] shone [H2224] upon the water [H4325] , and the Moabites [H4124] saw [H7200] the water [H4325] on the other side [H5048] [as] red [H122] as blood [H1818] :

3:23 And they said [H559] , This [is] blood [H1818] : the kings [H4428] are surely [H2717] slain [H2717] , and they have smitten [H5221] one [H376] another [H7453] : now therefore, Moab [H4124] , to the spoil [H7998] .(slain: Heb. destroyed)

3:24 And when they came [H935] to the camp [H4264] of Israel [H3478] , the Israelites [H3478] rose up [H6965] and smote [H5221] the Moabites [H4124] , so that they fled [H5127] before [H6440] them: but they went forward [H5221] smiting [H5221] the Moabites [H4124] , even in [their] country.(they went: or, they smote in it even smiting)

3:25 And they beat down [H2040] the cities [H5892] , and on every good [H2896] piece [H2513] of land cast [H7993] every man [H376] his stone [H68] , and filled [H4390] it; and they stopped [H5640] all the wells [H4599] of water [H4325] , and felled [H5307] all the good [H2896] trees [H6086] : only in Kirharaseth [H7025] left [H7604] they the stones [H68] thereof; howbeit the slingers [H7051] went about [H5437] [it], and smote [H5221] it.(only in: Heb. until he left its stones in Kirharaseth)

3:26 And when the king [H4428] of Moab [H4124] saw [H7200] that the battle [H4421] was too sore [H2388] for him, he took [H3947] with him seven [H7651] hundred [H3967] men [H376] that drew [H8025] swords [H2719] , to break through [H1234] [even] unto the king [H4428] of Edom [H123] : but they could [H3201] not.

3:27 Then he took [H3947] his eldest [H1060] son [H1121] that should have reigned [H4427] in his stead, and offered [H5927] him [for] a burnt offering [H5930] upon the wall [H2346] . And there was great [H1419] indignation [H7110] against Israel [H3478] : and they departed [H5265] from him, and returned [H7725] to [their own] land [H776] .
