kjv@1Kings:15:33 @ In the third year of Asa king of Judah began Baasha the son of Ahijah to reign over all Israel in Tirzah, twenty and four years.

kjv@1Kings:15:34 @ And he did evil in the sight of the LORD, and walked in the way of Jeroboam, and in his sin wherewith he made Israel to sin.

kjv@1Kings:16:1 @ Then the word of the LORD came to Jehu the son of Hanani against Baasha, saying,

kjv@1Kings:16:2 @ Forasmuch as I exalted thee out of the dust, and made thee prince over my people Israel; and thou hast walked in the way of Jeroboam, and hast made my people Israel to sin, to provoke me to anger with their sins;

kjv@1Kings:16:3 @ Behold, I will take away the posterity of Baasha, and the posterity of his house; and will make thy house like the house of Jeroboam the son of Nebat.

kjv@1Kings:16:4 @ Him that dieth of Baasha in the city shall the dogs eat; and him that dieth of his in the fields shall the fowls of the air eat.

kjv@1Kings:16:5 @ Now the rest of the acts of Baasha, and what he did, and his might, are they not written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Israel?

kjv@1Kings:16:6 @ So Baasha slept with his fathers, and was buried in Tirzah: and Elah his son reigned in his stead.

kjv@1Kings:16:7 @ And also by the hand of the prophet Jehu the son of Hanani came the word of the LORD against Baasha, and against his house, even for all the evil that he did in the sight of the LORD, in provoking him to anger with the work of his hands, in being like the house of Jeroboam; and because he killed him.

kjv@1Kings:16:8 @ In the twenty and sixth year of Asa king of Judah began Elah the son of Baasha to reign over Israel in Tirzah, two years.

kjv@1Kings:16:9 @ And his servant Zimri, captain of half his chariots, conspired against him, as he was in Tirzah, drinking himself drunk in the house of Arza steward of his house in Tirzah.

kjv@1Kings:16:10 @ And Zimri went in and smote him, and killed him, in the twenty and seventh year of Asa king of Judah, and reigned in his stead.

kjv@1Kings:16:11 @ And it came to pass, when he began to reign, as soon as he sat on his throne, that he slew all the house of Baasha: he left him not one that pisseth against a wall, neither of his kinsfolks, nor of his friends.

kjv@1Kings:16:12 @ Thus did Zimri destroy all the house of Baasha, according to the word of the LORD, which he spake against Baasha by Jehu the prophet,

kjv@1Kings:16:13 @ For all the sins of Baasha, and the sins of Elah his son, by which they sinned, and by which they made Israel to sin, in provoking the LORD God of Israel to anger with their vanities.

kjv@1Kings:16:14 @ Now the rest of the acts of Elah, and all that he did, are they not written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Israel?

kjv@1Kings:16:15 @ In the twenty and seventh year of Asa king of Judah did Zimri reign seven days in Tirzah. And the people were encamped against Gibbethon, which belonged to the Philistines.

kjv@1Kings:16:16 @ And the people that were encamped heard say, Zimri hath conspired, and hath also slain the king: wherefore all Israel made Omri, the captain of the host, king over Israel that day in the camp.

kjv@1Kings:16:17 @ And Omri went up from Gibbethon, and all Israel with him, and they besieged Tirzah.

kjv@1Kings:16:18 @ And it came to pass, when Zimri saw that the city was taken, that he went into the palace of the king's house, and burnt the king's house over him with fire, and died,

kjv@1Kings:16:19 @ For his sins which he sinned in doing evil in the sight of the LORD, in walking in the way of Jeroboam, and in his sin which he did, to make Israel to sin.

kjv@1Kings:16:20 @ Now the rest of the acts of Zimri, and his treason that he wrought, are they not written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Israel?

kjv@1Kings:16:21 @ Then were the people of Israel divided into two parts: half of the people followed Tibni the son of Ginath, to make him king; and half followed Omri.

kjv@1Kings:16:22 @ But the people that followed Omri prevailed against the people that followed Tibni the son of Ginath: so Tibni died, and Omri reigned.

kjv@1Kings:16:23 @ In the thirty and first year of Asa king of Judah began Omri to reign over Israel, twelve years: six years reigned he in Tirzah.

kjv@1Kings:16:24 @ And he bought the hill Samaria of Shemer for two talents of silver, and built on the hill, and called the name of the city which he built, after the name of Shemer, owner of the hill, Samaria.

kjv@1Kings:16:25 @ But Omri wrought evil in the eyes of the LORD, and did worse than all that were before him.

kjv@1Kings:16:26 @ For he walked in all the way of Jeroboam the son of Nebat, and in his sin wherewith he made Israel to sin, to provoke the LORD God of Israel to anger with their vanities.

kjv@1Kings:16:27 @ Now the rest of the acts of Omri which he did, and his might that he shewed, are they not written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Israel?

kjv@1Kings:16:28 @ So Omri slept with his fathers, and was buried in Samaria: and Ahab his son reigned in his stead.

kjv@1Kings:16:29 @ And in the thirty and eighth year of Asa king of Judah began Ahab the son of Omri to reign over Israel: and Ahab the son of Omri reigned over Israel in Samaria twenty and two years.

kjv@1Kings:16:30 @ And Ahab the son of Omri did evil in the sight of the LORD above all that were before him.

kjv@1Kings:16:31 @ And it came to pass, as if it had been a light thing for him to walk in the sins of Jeroboam the son of Nebat, that he took to wife Jezebel the daughter of Ethbaal king of the Zidonians, and went and served Baal, and worshipped him.

kjv@1Kings:16:32 @ And he reared up an altar for Baal in the house of Baal, which he had built in Samaria.

kjv@1Kings:16:33 @ And Ahab made a grove; and Ahab did more to provoke the LORD God of Israel to anger than all the kings of Israel that were before him.

kjv@1Kings:16:34 @ In his days did Hiel the Bethelite build Jericho: he laid the foundation thereof in Abiram his firstborn, and set up the gates thereof in his youngest son Segub, according to the word of the LORD, which he spake by Joshua the son of Nun.

kjv@1Kings:17:1 @ And Elijah the Tishbite, who was of the inhabitants of Gilead, said unto Ahab, As the LORD God of Israel liveth, before whom I stand, there shall not be dew nor rain these years, but according to my word.

kjv@1Kings:17:2 @ And the word of the LORD came unto him, saying,

kjv@1Kings:17:3 @ Get thee hence, and turn thee eastward, and hide thyself by the brook Cherith, that is before Jordan.

kjv@1Kings:17:4 @ And it shall be, that thou shalt drink of the brook; and I have commanded the ravens to feed thee there.

kjv@1Kings:17:5 @ So he went and did according unto the word of the LORD: for he went and dwelt by the brook Cherith, that is before Jordan.

kjv@1Kings:17:6 @ And the ravens brought him bread and flesh in the morning, and bread and flesh in the evening; and he drank of the brook.

kjv@1Kings:17:7 @ And it came to pass after a while, that the brook dried up, because there had been no rain in the land.

kjv@1Kings:17:8 @ And the word of the LORD came unto him, saying,

kjv@1Kings:17:9 @ Arise, get thee to Zarephath, which belongeth to Zidon, and dwell there: behold, I have commanded a widow woman there to sustain thee.

kjv@1Kings:17:10 @ So he arose and went to Zarephath. And when he came to the gate of the city, behold, the widow woman was there gathering of sticks: and he called to her, and said, Fetch me, I pray thee, a little water in a vessel, that I may drink.

kjv@1Kings:17:11 @ And as she was going to fetch it, he called to her, and said, Bring me, I pray thee, a morsel of bread in thine hand.

kjv@1Kings:17:12 @ And she said, As the LORD thy God liveth, I have not a cake, but an handful of meal in a barrel, and a little oil in a cruse: and, behold, I am gathering two sticks, that I may go in and dress it for me and my son, that we may eat it, and die.

kjv@1Kings:17:13 @ And Elijah said unto her, Fear not; go and do as thou hast said: but make me thereof a little cake first, and bring it unto me, and after make for thee and for thy son.

kjv@1Kings:17:14 @ For thus saith the LORD God of Israel, The barrel of meal shall not waste, neither shall the cruse of oil fail, until the day that the LORD sendeth rain upon the earth.

kjv@1Kings:17:15 @ And she went and did according to the saying of Elijah: and she, and he, and her house, did eat many days.

kjv@1Kings:17:16 @ And the barrel of meal wasted not, neither did the cruse of oil fail, according to the word of the LORD, which he spake by Elijah.

kjv@1Kings:17:17 @ And it came to pass after these things, that the son of the woman, the mistress of the house, fell sick; and his sickness was so sore, that there was no breath left in him.

kjv@1Kings:17:18 @ And she said unto Elijah, What have I to do with thee, O thou man of God? art thou come unto me to call my sin to remembrance, and to slay my son?

kjv@1Kings:17:19 @ And he said unto her, Give me thy son. And he took him out of her bosom, and carried him up into a loft, where he abode, and laid him upon his own bed.

kjv@1Kings:17:20 @ And he cried unto the LORD, and said, O LORD my God, hast thou also brought evil upon the widow with whom I sojourn, by slaying her son?

kjv@1Kings:17:21 @ And he stretched himself upon the child three times, and cried unto the LORD, and said, O LORD my God, I pray thee, let this child's soul come into him again.

kjv@1Kings:17:22 @ And the LORD heard the voice of Elijah; and the soul of the child came into him again, and he revived.

kjv@1Kings:17:23 @ And Elijah took the child, and brought him down out of the chamber into the house, and delivered him unto his mother: and Elijah said, See, thy son liveth.

kjv@1Kings:17:24 @ And the woman said to Elijah, Now by this I know that thou art a man of God, and that the word of the LORD in thy mouth is truth.

kjv@1Kings:18:1 @ And it came to pass after many days, that the word of the LORD came to Elijah in the third year, saying, Go, shew thyself unto Ahab; and I will send rain upon the earth.

kjv@1Kings:18:2 @ And Elijah went to shew himself unto Ahab. And there was a sore famine in Samaria.

kjv@1Kings:18:3 @ And Ahab called Obadiah, which was the governor of his house. (Now Obadiah feared the LORD greatly:

kjv@1Kings:18:4 @ For it was so, when Jezebel cut off the prophets of the LORD, that Obadiah took an hundred prophets, and hid them by fifty in a cave, and fed them with bread and water.)

kjv@1Kings:18:5 @ And Ahab said unto Obadiah, Go into the land, unto all fountains of water, and unto all brooks: peradventure we may find grass to save the horses and mules alive, that we lose not all the beasts.

kjv@1Kings:18:6 @ So they divided the land between them to pass throughout it: Ahab went one way by himself, and Obadiah went another way by himself.

kjv@1Kings:18:7 @ And as Obadiah was in the way, behold, Elijah met him: and he knew him, and fell on his face, and said, Art thou that my lord Elijah?

kjv@1Kings:18:8 @ And he answered him, I am: go, tell thy lord, Behold, Elijah is here.

kjv@1Kings:18:9 @ And he said, What have I sinned, that thou wouldest deliver thy servant into the hand of Ahab, to slay me?

kjv@1Kings:18:10 @ As the LORD thy God liveth, there is no nation or kingdom, whither my lord hath not sent to seek thee: and when they said, He is not there; he took an oath of the kingdom and nation, that they found thee not.

kjv@1Kings:18:11 @ And now thou sayest, Go, tell thy lord, Behold, Elijah is here.

kjv@1Kings:18:12 @ And it shall come to pass, as soon as I am gone from thee, that the Spirit of the LORD shall carry thee whither I know not; and so when I come and tell Ahab, and he cannot find thee, he shall slay me: but I thy servant fear the LORD from my youth.

kjv@1Kings:18:13 @ Was it not told my lord what I did when Jezebel slew the prophets of the LORD, how I hid an hundred men of the LORD'S prophets by fifty in a cave, and fed them with bread and water?

kjv@1Kings:18:14 @ And now thou sayest, Go, tell thy lord, Behold, Elijah is here: and he shall slay me.

kjv@1Kings:18:15 @ And Elijah said, As the LORD of hosts liveth, before whom I stand, I will surely shew myself unto him to day.

kjv@1Kings:18:16 @ So Obadiah went to meet Ahab, and told him: and Ahab went to meet Elijah.

kjv@1Kings:18:17 @ And it came to pass, when Ahab saw Elijah, that Ahab said unto him, Art thou he that troubleth Israel?

kjv@1Kings:18:18 @ And he answered, I have not troubled Israel; but thou, and thy father's house, in that ye have forsaken the commandments of the LORD, and thou hast followed Baalim.

kjv@1Kings:18:19 @ Now therefore send, and gather to me all Israel unto mount Carmel, and the prophets of Baal four hundred and fifty, and the prophets of the groves four hundred, which eat at Jezebel's table.

kjv@1Kings:18:20 @ So Ahab sent unto all the children of Israel, and gathered the prophets together unto mount Carmel.

kjv@1Kings:18:21 @ And Elijah came unto all the people, and said, How long halt ye between two opinions? if the LORD be God, follow him: but if Baal, then follow him. And the people answered him not a word.

kjv@1Kings:18:22 @ Then said Elijah unto the people, I, even I only, remain a prophet of the LORD; but Baal's prophets are four hundred and fifty men.

kjv@1Kings:18:23 @ Let them therefore give us two bullocks; and let them choose one bullock for themselves, and cut it in pieces, and lay it on wood, and put no fire under: and I will dress the other bullock, and lay it on wood, and put no fire under:

kjv@1Kings:18:24 @ And call ye on the name of your gods, and I will call on the name of the LORD: and the God that answereth by fire, let him be God. And all the people answered and said, It is well spoken.

kjv@1Kings:18:25 @ And Elijah said unto the prophets of Baal, Choose you one bullock for yourselves, and dress it first; for ye are many; and call on the name of your gods, but put no fire under.

kjv@1Kings:18:26 @ And they took the bullock which was given them, and they dressed it, and called on the name of Baal from morning even until noon, saying, O Baal, hear us. But there was no voice, nor any that answered. And they leaped upon the altar which was made.

kjv@1Kings:18:27 @ And it came to pass at noon, that Elijah mocked them, and said, Cry aloud: for he is a god; either he is talking, or he is pursuing, or he is in a journey, or peradventure he sleepeth, and must be awaked.

kjv@1Kings:18:28 @ And they cried aloud, and cut themselves after their manner with knives and lancets, till the blood gushed out upon them.

kjv@1Kings:18:29 @ And it came to pass, when midday was past, and they prophesied until the time of the offering of the evening sacrifice, that there was neither voice, nor any to answer, nor any that regarded.

kjv@1Kings:18:30 @ And Elijah said unto all the people, Come near unto me. And all the people came near unto him. And he repaired the altar of the LORD that was broken down.

kjv@1Kings:18:31 @ And Elijah took twelve stones, according to the number of the tribes of the sons of Jacob, unto whom the word of the LORD came, saying, Israel shall be thy name:

kjv@1Kings:18:32 @ And with the stones he built an altar in the name of the LORD: and he made a trench about the altar, as great as would contain two measures of seed.

kjv@1Kings:18:33 @ And he put the wood in order, and cut the bullock in pieces, and laid him on the wood, and said, Fill four barrels with water, and pour it on the burnt sacrifice, and on the wood.

kjv@1Kings:18:34 @ And he said, Do it the second time. And they did it the second time. And he said, Do it the third time. And they did it the third time.

kjv@1Kings:18:35 @ And the water ran round about the altar; and he filled the trench also with water.

kjv@1Kings:18:36 @ And it came to pass at the time of the offering of the evening sacrifice, that Elijah the prophet came near, and said, LORD God of Abraham, Isaac, and of Israel, let it be known this day that thou art God in Israel, and that I am thy servant, and that I have done all these things at thy word.

kjv@1Kings:18:37 @ Hear me, O LORD, hear me, that this people may know that thou art the LORD God, and that thou hast turned their heart back again.

kjv@1Kings:18:38 @ Then the fire of the LORD fell, and consumed the burnt sacrifice, and the wood, and the stones, and the dust, and licked up the water that was in the trench.

kjv@1Kings:18:39 @ And when all the people saw it, they fell on their faces: and they said, The LORD, he is the God; the LORD, he is the God.

kjv@1Kings:18:40 @ And Elijah said unto them, Take the prophets of Baal; let not one of them escape. And they took them: and Elijah brought them down to the brook Kishon, and slew them there.

kjv@1Kings:18:41 @ And Elijah said unto Ahab, Get thee up, eat and drink; for there is a sound of abundance of rain.

kjv@1Kings:18:42 @ So Ahab went up to eat and to drink. And Elijah went up to the top of Carmel; and he cast himself down upon the earth, and put his face between his knees,

kjv@1Kings:18:43 @ And said to his servant, Go up now, look toward the sea. And he went up, and looked, and said, There is nothing. And he said, Go again seven times.

kjv@1Kings:18:44 @ And it came to pass at the seventh time, that he said, Behold, there ariseth a little cloud out of the sea, like a man's hand. And he said, Go up, say unto Ahab, Prepare thy chariot, and get thee down, that the rain stop thee not.

kjv@1Kings:18:45 @ And it came to pass in the mean while, that the heaven was black with clouds and wind, and there was a great rain. And Ahab rode, and went to Jezreel.

kjv@1Kings:18:46 @ And the hand of the LORD was on Elijah; and he girded up his loins, and ran before Ahab to the entrance of Jezreel.

kjv@1Kings:19:1 @ And Ahab told Jezebel all that Elijah had done, and withal how he had slain all the prophets with the sword.

kjv@1Kings:19:2 @ Then Jezebel sent a messenger unto Elijah, saying, So let the gods do to me, and more also, if I make not thy life as the life of one of them by to morrow about this time.

kjv@1Kings:19:3 @ And when he saw that, he arose, and went for his life, and came to Beersheba, which belongeth to Judah, and left his servant there.

kjv@1Kings:19:4 @ But he himself went a day's journey into the wilderness, and came and sat down under a juniper tree: and he requested for himself that he might die; and said, It is enough; now, O LORD, take away my life; for I am not better than my fathers.

kjv@1Kings:19:5 @ And as he lay and slept under a juniper tree, behold, then an angel touched him, and said unto him, Arise and eat.

kjv@1Kings:19:6 @ And he looked, and, behold, there was a cake baken on the coals, and a cruse of water at his head. And he did eat and drink, and laid him down again.

kjv@1Kings:19:7 @ And the angel of the LORD came again the second time, and touched him, and said, Arise and eat; because the journey is too great for thee.

kjv@1Kings:19:8 @ And he arose, and did eat and drink, and went in the strength of that meat forty days and forty nights unto Horeb the mount of God.

kjv@1Kings:19:9 @ And he came thither unto a cave, and lodged there; and, behold, the word of the LORD came to him, and he said unto him, What doest thou here, Elijah?

kjv@1Kings:19:10 @ And he said, I have been very jealous for the LORD God of hosts: for the children of Israel have forsaken thy covenant, thrown down thine altars, and slain thy prophets with the sword; and I, even I only, am left; and they seek my life, to take it away.

kjv@1Kings:19:11 @ And he said, Go forth, and stand upon the mount before the LORD. And, behold, the LORD passed by, and a great and strong wind rent the mountains, and brake in pieces the rocks before the LORD; but the LORD was not in the wind: and after the wind an earthquake; but the LORD was not in the earthquake:

kjv@1Kings:19:12 @ And after the earthquake a fire; but the LORD was not in the fire: and after the fire a still small voice.

kjv@1Kings:19:13 @ And it was so, when Elijah heard it, that he wrapped his face in his mantle, and went out, and stood in the entering in of the cave. And, behold, there came a voice unto him, and said, What doest thou here, Elijah?

kjv@1Kings:19:14 @ And he said, I have been very jealous for the LORD God of hosts: because the children of Israel have forsaken thy covenant, thrown down thine altars, and slain thy prophets with the sword; and I, even I only, am left; and they seek my life, to take it away.

kjv@1Kings:19:15 @ And the LORD said unto him, Go, return on thy way to the wilderness of Damascus: and when thou comest, anoint Hazael to be king over Syria:

kjv@1Kings:19:16 @ And Jehu the son of Nimshi shalt thou anoint to be king over Israel: and Elisha the son of Shaphat of Abelmeholah shalt thou anoint to be prophet in thy room.

kjv@1Kings:19:17 @ And it shall come to pass, that him that escapeth the sword of Hazael shall Jehu slay: and him that escapeth from the sword of Jehu shall Elisha slay.

kjv@1Kings:19:18 @ Yet I have left me seven thousand in Israel, all the knees which have not bowed unto Baal, and every mouth which hath not kissed him.

kjv@1Kings:19:19 @ So he departed thence, and found Elisha the son of Shaphat, who was plowing with twelve yoke of oxen before him, and he with the twelfth: and Elijah passed by him, and cast his mantle upon him.

kjv@1Kings:19:20 @ And he left the oxen, and ran after Elijah, and said, Let me, I pray thee, kiss my father and my mother, and then I will follow thee. And he said unto him, Go back again: for what have I done to thee?

kjv@1Kings:19:21 @ And he returned back from him, and took a yoke of oxen, and slew them, and boiled their flesh with the instruments of the oxen, and gave unto the people, and they did eat. Then he arose, and went after Elijah, and ministered unto him.

kjv@1Kings:20:1 @ And Benhadad the king of Syria gathered all his host together: and there were thirty and two kings with him, and horses, and chariots: and he went up and besieged Samaria, and warred against it.

kjv@1Kings:20:2 @ And he sent messengers to Ahab king of Israel into the city, and said unto him, Thus saith Benhadad,

kjv@1Kings:20:3 @ Thy silver and thy gold is mine; thy wives also and thy children, even the goodliest, are mine.

kjv@1Kings:20:4 @ And the king of Israel answered and said, My lord, O king, according to thy saying, I am thine, and all that I have.

kjv@1Kings:20:5 @ And the messengers came again, and said, Thus speaketh Benhadad, saying, Although I have sent unto thee, saying, Thou shalt deliver me thy silver, and thy gold, and thy wives, and thy children;

kjv@1Kings:20:6 @ Yet I will send my servants unto thee to morrow about this time, and they shall search thine house, and the houses of thy servants; and it shall be, that whatsoever is pleasant in thine eyes, they shall put it in their hand, and take it away.

kjv@1Kings:20:7 @ Then the king of Israel called all the elders of the land, and said, Mark, I pray you, and see how this man seeketh mischief: for he sent unto me for my wives, and for my children, and for my silver, and for my gold; and I denied him not.

kjv@1Kings:20:8 @ And all the elders and all the people said unto him, Hearken not unto him, nor consent.

kjv@1Kings:20:9 @ Wherefore he said unto the messengers of Benhadad, Tell my lord the king, All that thou didst send for to thy servant at the first I will do: but this thing I may not do. And the messengers departed, and brought him word again.

kjv@1Kings:20:10 @ And Benhadad sent unto him, and said, The gods do so unto me, and more also, if the dust of Samaria shall suffice for handfuls for all the people that follow me.

kjv@1Kings:20:11 @ And the king of Israel answered and said, Tell him, Let not him that girdeth on his harness boast himself as he that putteth it off.

kjv@1Kings:20:12 @ And it came to pass, when Benhadad heard this message, as he was drinking, he and the kings in the pavilions, that he said unto his servants, Set yourselves in array. And they set themselves in array against the city.

kjv@1Kings:20:13 @ And, behold, there came a prophet unto Ahab king of Israel, saying, Thus saith the LORD, Hast thou seen all this great multitude? behold, I will deliver it into thine hand this day; and thou shalt know that I am the LORD.

kjv@1Kings:20:14 @ And Ahab said, By whom? And he said, Thus saith the LORD, Even by the young men of the princes of the provinces. Then he said, Who shall order the battle? And he answered, Thou.

kjv@1Kings:20:15 @ Then he numbered the young men of the princes of the provinces, and they were two hundred and thirty two: and after them he numbered all the people, even all the children of Israel, being seven thousand.

kjv@1Kings:20:16 @ And they went out at noon. But Benhadad was drinking himself drunk in the pavilions, he and the kings, the thirty and two kings that helped him.

kjv@1Kings:20:17 @ And the young men of the princes of the provinces went out first; and Benhadad sent out, and they told him, saying, There are men come out of Samaria.

kjv@1Kings:20:18 @ And he said, Whether they be come out for peace, take them alive; or whether they be come out for war, take them alive.

kjv@1Kings:20:19 @ So these young men of the princes of the provinces came out of the city, and the army which followed them.

kjv@1Kings:20:20 @ And they slew every one his man: and the Syrians fled; and Israel pursued them: and Benhadad the king of Syria escaped on an horse with the horsemen.

kjv@1Kings:20:21 @ And the king of Israel went out, and smote the horses and chariots, and slew the Syrians with a great slaughter.

kjv@1Kings:20:22 @ And the prophet came to the king of Israel, and said unto him, Go, strengthen thyself, and mark, and see what thou doest: for at the return of the year the king of Syria will come up against thee.

kjv@1Kings:20:23 @ And the servants of the king of Syria said unto him, Their gods are gods of the hills; therefore they were stronger than we; but let us fight against them in the plain, and surely we shall be stronger than they.

kjv@1Kings:20:24 @ And do this thing, Take the kings away, every man out of his place, and put captains in their rooms:

kjv@1Kings:20:25 @ And number thee an army, like the army that thou hast lost, horse for horse, and chariot for chariot: and we will fight against them in the plain, and surely we shall be stronger than they. And he hearkened unto their voice, and did so.

kjv@1Kings:20:26 @ And it came to pass at the return of the year, that Benhadad numbered the Syrians, and went up to Aphek, to fight against Israel.

kjv@1Kings:20:27 @ And the children of Israel were numbered, and were all present, and went against them: and the children of Israel pitched before them like two little flocks of kids; but the Syrians filled the country.

kjv@1Kings:20:28 @ And there came a man of God, and spake unto the king of Israel, and said, Thus saith the LORD, Because the Syrians have said, The LORD is God of the hills, but he is not God of the valleys, therefore will I deliver all this great multitude into thine hand, and ye shall know that I am the LORD.

kjv@1Kings:22:22 @ And the LORD said unto him, Wherewith? And he said, I will go forth, and I will be a lying spirit in the mouth of all his prophets. And he said, Thou shalt persuade him, and prevail also: go forth, and do so.

kjv@1Kings:22:23 @ Now therefore, behold, the LORD hath put a lying spirit in the mouth of all these thy prophets, and the LORD hath spoken evil concerning thee.

kjv@1Kings:22:48 @ Jehoshaphat made ships of Tharshish to go to Ophir for gold: but they went not; for the ships were broken at Eziongeber.

kjv@1Kings:22:49 @ Then said Ahaziah the son of Ahab unto Jehoshaphat, Let my servants go with thy servants in the ships. But Jehoshaphat would not.

kjv@1Kings:22:50 @ And Jehoshaphat slept with his fathers, and was buried with his fathers in the city of David his father: and Jehoram his son reigned in his stead.

kjv@1Kings:22:51 @ Ahaziah the son of Ahab began to reign over Israel in Samaria the seventeenth year of Jehoshaphat king of Judah, and reigned two years over Israel.

kjv@1Kings:22:52 @ And he did evil in the sight of the LORD, and walked in the way of his father, and in the way of his mother, and in the way of Jeroboam the son of Nebat, who made Israel to sin:

kjv@2Kings:1:6 @ And they said unto him, There came a man up to meet us, and said unto us, Go, turn again unto the king that sent you, and say unto him, Thus saith the LORD, Is it not because there is not a God in Israel, that thou sendest to enquire of Baalzebub the god of Ekron? therefore thou shalt not come down from that bed on which thou art gone up, but shalt surely die.

kjv@2Kings:1:7 @ And he said unto them, What manner of man was he which came up to meet you, and told you these words?

kjv@2Kings:1:8 @ And they answered him, He was an hairy man, and girt with a girdle of leather about his loins. And he said, It is Elijah the Tishbite.

kjv@2Kings:1:9 @ Then the king sent unto him a captain of fifty with his fifty. And he went up to him: and, behold, he sat on the top of an hill. And he spake unto him, Thou man of God, the king hath said, Come down.

kjv@2Kings:1:16 @ And he said unto him, Thus saith the LORD, Forasmuch as thou hast sent messengers to enquire of Baalzebub the god of Ekron, is it not because there is no God in Israel to enquire of his word? therefore thou shalt not come down off that bed on which thou art gone up, but shalt surely die.

kjv@2Kings:1:17 @ So he died according to the word of the LORD which Elijah had spoken. And Jehoram reigned in his stead in the second year of Jehoram the son of Jehoshaphat king of Judah; because he had no son.

kjv@2Kings:3:26 @ And when the king of Moab saw that the battle was too sore for him, he took with him seven hundred men that drew swords, to break through even unto the king of Edom: but they could not.

kjv@2Kings:3:27 @ Then he took his eldest son that should have reigned in his stead, and offered him for a burnt offering upon the wall. And there was great indignation against Israel: and they departed from him, and returned to their own land.

kjv@2Kings:5:6 @ And he brought the letter to the king of Israel, saying, Now when this letter is come unto thee, behold, I have therewith sent Naaman my servant to thee, that thou mayest recover him of his leprosy.

kjv@2Kings:5:7 @ And it came to pass, when the king of Israel had read the letter, that he rent his clothes, and said, Am I God, to kill and to make alive, that this man doth send unto me to recover a man of his leprosy? wherefore consider, I pray you, and see how he seeketh a quarrel against me.

kjv@2Kings:5:8 @ And it was so, when Elisha the man of God had heard that the king of Israel had rent his clothes, that he sent to the king, saying, Wherefore hast thou rent thy clothes? let him come now to me, and he shall know that there is a prophet in Israel.

kjv@2Kings:5:22 @ And he said, All is well. My master hath sent me, saying, Behold, even now there be come to me from mount Ephraim two young men of the sons of the prophets: give them, I pray thee, a talent of silver, and two changes of garments.

kjv@2Kings:5:23 @ And Naaman said, Be content, take two talents. And he urged him, and bound two talents of silver in two bags, with two changes of garments, and laid them upon two of his servants; and they bare them before him.

kjv@2Kings:5:26 @ And he said unto him, Went not mine heart with thee, when the man turned again from his chariot to meet thee? Is it a time to receive money, and to receive garments, and oliveyards, and vineyards, and sheep, and oxen, and menservants, and maidservants?

kjv@2Kings:5:27 @ The leprosy therefore of Naaman shall cleave unto thee, and unto thy seed for ever. And he went out from his presence a leper as white as snow.

kjv@2Kings:6:7 @ Therefore said he, Take it up to thee. And he put out his hand, and took it.

kjv@2Kings:6:8 @ Then the king of Syria warred against Israel, and took counsel with his servants, saying, In such and such a place shall be my camp.

kjv@2Kings:6:9 @ And the man of God sent unto the king of Israel, saying, Beware that thou pass not such a place; for thither the Syrians are come down.

kjv@2Kings:6:10 @ And the king of Israel sent to the place which the man of God told him and warned him of, and saved himself there, not once nor twice.

kjv@2Kings:9:22 @ And it came to pass, when Joram saw Jehu, that he said, Is it peace, Jehu? And he answered, What peace, so long as the whoredoms of thy mother Jezebel and her witchcrafts are so many?

kjv@2Kings:9:23 @ And Joram turned his hands, and fled, and said to Ahaziah, There is treachery, O Ahaziah.

kjv@2Kings:9:24 @ And Jehu drew a bow with his full strength, and smote Jehoram between his arms, and the arrow went out at his heart, and he sunk down in his chariot.

kjv@2Kings:9:25 @ Then said Jehu to Bidkar his captain, Take up, and cast him in the portion of the field of Naboth the Jezreelite: for remember how that, when I and thou rode together after Ahab his father, the LORD laid this burden upon him;

kjv@2Kings:9:32 @ And he lifted up his face to the window, and said, Who is on my side? who? And there looked out to him two or three eunuchs.

kjv@2Kings:9:33 @ And he said, Throw her down. So they threw her down: and some of her blood was sprinkled on the wall, and on the horses: and he trode her under foot.

kjv@2Kings:9:34 @ And when he was come in, he did eat and drink, and said, Go, see now this cursed woman, and bury her: for she is a king's daughter.

kjv@2Kings:9:35 @ And they went to bury her: but they found no more of her than the skull, and the feet, and the palms of her hands.

kjv@2Kings:9:36 @ Wherefore they came again, and told him. And he said, This is the word of the LORD, which he spake by his servant Elijah the Tishbite, saying, In the portion of Jezreel shall dogs eat the flesh of Jezebel:

kjv@2Kings:10:5 @ And he that was over the house, and he that was over the city, the elders also, and the bringers up of the children, sent to Jehu, saying, We are thy servants, and will do all that thou shalt bid us; we will not make any king: do thou that which is good in thine eyes.

kjv@2Kings:10:6 @ Then he wrote a letter the second time to them, saying, If ye be mine, and if ye will hearken unto my voice, take ye the heads of the men your master's sons, and come to me to Jezreel by to morrow this time. Now the king's sons, being seventy persons, were with the great men of the city, which brought them up.

kjv@2Kings:10:7 @ And it came to pass, when the letter came to them, that they took the king's sons, and slew seventy persons, and put their heads in baskets, and sent him them to Jezreel.

kjv@2Kings:10:8 @ And there came a messenger, and told him, saying, They have brought the heads of the king's sons. And he said, Lay ye them in two heaps at the entering in of the gate until the morning.

kjv@2Kings:10:9 @ And it came to pass in the morning, that he went out, and stood, and said to all the people, Ye be righteous: behold, I conspired against my master, and slew him: but who slew all these?

kjv@2Kings:10:10 @ Know now that there shall fall unto the earth nothing of the word of the LORD, which the LORD spake concerning the house of Ahab: for the LORD hath done that which he spake by his servant Elijah.

kjv@2Kings:10:12 @ And he arose and departed, and came to Samaria. And as he was at the shearing house in the way,

kjv@2Kings:10:13 @ Jehu met with the brethren of Ahaziah king of Judah, and said, Who are ye? And they answered, We are the brethren of Ahaziah; and we go down to salute the children of the king and the children of the queen.

kjv@2Kings:10:14 @ And he said, Take them alive. And they took them alive, and slew them at the pit of the shearing house, even two and forty men; neither left he any of them.

kjv@2Kings:10:15 @ And when he was departed thence, he lighted on Jehonadab the son of Rechab coming to meet him: and he saluted him, and said to him, Is thine heart right, as my heart is with thy heart?

kjv@2Kings:10:16 @ And he said, Come with me, and see my zeal for the LORD. So they made him ride in his chariot.

kjv@2Kings:10:17 @ And when he came to Samaria, he slew all that remained unto Ahab in Samaria, till he had destroyed him, according to the saying of the LORD, which he spake to Elijah.

kjv@2Kings:10:18 @ And Jehu gathered all the people together, and said unto them, Ahab served Baal a little; but Jehu shall serve him much.

kjv@2Kings:10:19 @ Now therefore call unto me all the prophets of Baal, all his servants, and all his priests; let none be wanting: for I have a great sacrifice to do to Baal; whosoever shall be wanting, he shall not live.

kjv@2Kings:10:20 @ And Jehu said, Proclaim a solemn assembly for Baal. And they proclaimed it.

kjv@2Kings:10:21 @ And Jehu sent through all Israel: and all the worshippers of Baal came, so that there was not a man left that came not. And they came into the house of Baal; and the house of Baal was full from one end to another.

kjv@2Kings:10:22 @ And he said unto him that was over the vestry, Bring forth vestments for all the worshippers of Baal. And he brought them forth vestments.

kjv@2Kings:10:23 @ And Jehu went, and Jehonadab the son of Rechab, into the house of Baal, and said unto the worshippers of Baal, Search, and look that there be here with you none of the servants of the LORD, but the worshippers of Baal only.

kjv@2Kings:10:24 @ And when they went in to offer sacrifices and burnt offerings, Jehu appointed fourscore men without, and said, If any of the men whom I have brought into your hands escape, he that letteth him go, his life shall be for the life of him.

kjv@2Kings:10:25 @ And it came to pass, as soon as he had made an end of offering the burnt offering, that Jehu said to the guard and to the captains, Go in, and slay them; let none come forth. And they smote them with the edge of the sword; and the guard and the captains cast them out, and went to the city of the house of Baal.

kjv@2Kings:10:26 @ And they brought forth the images out of the house of Baal, and burned them.

kjv@2Kings:10:27 @ And they brake down the image of Baal, and brake down the house of Baal, and made it a draught house unto this day.

kjv@2Kings:10:28 @ Thus Jehu destroyed Baal out of Israel.

kjv@2Kings:10:29 @ Howbeit from the sins of Jeroboam the son of Nebat, who made Israel to sin, Jehu departed not from after them, to wit, the golden calves that were in Bethel, and that were in Dan.

kjv@2Kings:10:30 @ And the LORD said unto Jehu, Because thou hast done well in executing that which is right in mine eyes, and hast done unto the house of Ahab according to all that was in mine heart, thy children of the fourth generation shall sit on the throne of Israel.

kjv@2Kings:10:31 @ But Jehu took no heed to walk in the law of the LORD God of Israel with all his heart: for he departed not from the sins of Jeroboam, which made Israel to sin.

kjv@2Kings:11:1 @ And when Athaliah the mother of Ahaziah saw that her son was dead, she arose and destroyed all the seed royal.

kjv@2Kings:11:2 @ But Jehosheba, the daughter of king Joram, sister of Ahaziah, took Joash the son of Ahaziah, and stole him from among the king's sons which were slain; and they hid him, even him and his nurse, in the bedchamber from Athaliah, so that he was not slain.

kjv@2Kings:18:22 @ But if ye say unto me, We trust in the LORD our God: is not that he, whose high places and whose altars Hezekiah hath taken away, and hath said to Judah and Jerusalem, Ye shall worship before this altar in Jerusalem?

kjv@2Kings:18:23 @ Now therefore, I pray thee, give pledges to my lord the king of Assyria, and I will deliver thee two thousand horses, if thou be able on thy part to set riders upon them.

kjv@2Kings:18:25 @ Am I now come up without the LORD against this place to destroy it? The LORD said to me, Go up against this land, and destroy it.

kjv@2Kings:18:27 @ But Rabshakeh said unto them, Hath my master sent me to thy master, and to thee, to speak these words? hath he not sent me to the men which sit on the wall, that they may eat their own dung, and drink their own piss with you?

kjv@2Kings:18:28 @ Then Rabshakeh stood and cried with a loud voice in the Jews' language, and spake, saying, Hear the word of the great king, the king of Assyria:

kjv@2Kings:18:29 @ Thus saith the king, Let not Hezekiah deceive you: for he shall not be able to deliver you out of his hand:

kjv@2Kings:18:30 @ Neither let Hezekiah make you trust in the LORD, saying, The LORD will surely deliver us, and this city shall not be delivered into the hand of the king of Assyria.

kjv@2Kings:18:31 @ Hearken not to Hezekiah: for thus saith the king of Assyria, Make an agreement with me by a present, and come out to me, and then eat ye every man of his own vine, and every one of his fig tree, and drink ye every one the waters of his cistern:

kjv@2Kings:18:32 @ Until I come and take you away to a land like your own land, a land of corn and wine, a land of bread and vineyards, a land of oil olive and of honey, that ye may live, and not die: and hearken not unto Hezekiah, when he persuadeth you, saying, The LORD will deliver us.

kjv@2Kings:18:33 @ Hath any of the gods of the nations delivered at all his land out of the hand of the king of Assyria?

kjv@2Kings:18:34 @ Where are the gods of Hamath, and of Arpad? where are the gods of Sepharvaim, Hena, and Ivah? have they delivered Samaria out of mine hand?

kjv@2Kings:18:35 @ Who are they among all the gods of the countries, that have delivered their country out of mine hand, that the LORD should deliver Jerusalem out of mine hand?

kjv@2Kings:18:36 @ But the people held their peace, and answered him not a word: for the king's commandment was, saying, Answer him not.

kjv@2Kings:18:37 @ Then came Eliakim the son of Hilkiah, which was over the household, and Shebna the scribe, and Joah the son of Asaph the recorder, to Hezekiah with their clothes rent, and told him the words of Rabshakeh.

kjv@2Kings:19:1 @ And it came to pass, when king Hezekiah heard it, that he rent his clothes, and covered himself with sackcloth, and went into the house of the LORD.

kjv@2Kings:19:2 @ And he sent Eliakim, which was over the household, and Shebna the scribe, and the elders of the priests, covered with sackcloth, to Isaiah the prophet the son of Amoz.

kjv@2Kings:19:3 @ And they said unto him, Thus saith Hezekiah, This day is a day of trouble, and of rebuke, and blasphemy: for the children are come to the birth, and there is not strength to bring forth.

kjv@2Kings:19:4 @ It may be the LORD thy God will hear all the words of Rabshakeh, whom the king of Assyria his master hath sent to reproach the living God; and will reprove the words which the LORD thy God hath heard: wherefore lift up thy prayer for the remnant that are left.

kjv@2Kings:19:15 @ And Hezekiah prayed before the LORD, and said, O LORD God of Israel, which dwellest between the cherubims, thou art the God, even thou alone, of all the kingdoms of the earth; thou hast made heaven and earth.

kjv@2Kings:19:17 @ Of a truth, LORD, the kings of Assyria have destroyed the nations and their lands,

kjv@2Kings:19:18 @ And have cast their gods into the fire: for they were no gods, but the work of men's hands, wood and stone: therefore they have destroyed them.

kjv@2Kings:19:19 @ Now therefore, O LORD our God, I beseech thee, save thou us out of his hand, that all the kingdoms of the earth may know that thou art the LORD God, even thou only.

kjv@2Kings:19:20 @ Then Isaiah the son of Amoz sent to Hezekiah, saying, Thus saith the LORD God of Israel, That which thou hast prayed to me against Sennacherib king of Assyria I have heard.

kjv@2Kings:19:21 @ This is the word that the LORD hath spoken concerning him; The virgin the daughter of Zion hath despised thee, and laughed thee to scorn; the daughter of Jerusalem hath shaken her head at thee.

kjv@2Kings:19:23 @ By thy messengers thou hast reproached the Lord, and hast said, With the multitude of my chariots I am come up to the height of the mountains, to the sides of Lebanon, and will cut down the tall cedar trees thereof, and the choice fir trees thereof: and I will enter into the lodgings of his borders, and into the forest of his Carmel.

kjv@2Kings:19:24 @ I have digged and drunk strange waters, and with the sole of my feet have I dried up all the rivers of besieged places.

kjv@2Kings:19:25 @ Hast thou not heard long ago how I have done it, and of ancient times that I have formed it? now have I brought it to pass, that thou shouldest be to lay waste fenced cities into ruinous heaps.

kjv@2Kings:19:26 @ Therefore their inhabitants were of small power, they were dismayed and confounded; they were as the grass of the field, and as the green herb, as the grass on the housetops, and as corn blasted before it be grown up.

kjv@2Kings:19:28 @ Because thy rage against me and thy tumult is come up into mine ears, therefore I will put my hook in thy nose, and my bridle in thy lips, and I will turn thee back by the way by which thou camest.

kjv@2Kings:19:37 @ And it came to pass, as he was worshipping in the house of Nisroch his god, that Adrammelech and Sharezer his sons smote him with the sword: and they escaped into the land of Armenia. And Esarhaddon his son reigned in his stead.

kjv@2Kings:20:1 @ In those days was Hezekiah sick unto death. And the prophet Isaiah the son of Amoz came to him, and said unto him, Thus saith the LORD, Set thine house in order; for thou shalt die, and not live.

kjv@2Kings:20:3 @ I beseech thee, O LORD, remember now how I have walked before thee in truth and with a perfect heart, and have done that which is good in thy sight. And Hezekiah wept sore.

kjv@2Kings:20:7 @ And Isaiah said, Take a lump of figs. And they took and laid it on the boil, and he recovered.

kjv@2Kings:20:8 @ And Hezekiah said unto Isaiah, What shall be the sign that the LORD will heal me, and that I shall go up into the house of the LORD the third day?

kjv@2Kings:20:9 @ And Isaiah said, This sign shalt thou have of the LORD, that the LORD will do the thing that he hath spoken: shall the shadow go forward ten degrees, or go back ten degrees?

kjv@2Kings:20:10 @ And Hezekiah answered, It is a light thing for the shadow to go down ten degrees: nay, but let the shadow return backward ten degrees.

kjv@2Kings:20:11 @ And Isaiah the prophet cried unto the LORD: and he brought the shadow ten degrees backward, by which it had gone down in the dial of Ahaz.

kjv@2Kings:20:12 @ At that time Berodachbaladan, the son of Baladan, king of Babylon, sent letters and a present unto Hezekiah: for he had heard that Hezekiah had been sick.

kjv@2Kings:20:13 @ And Hezekiah hearkened unto them, and shewed them all the house of his precious things, the silver, and the gold, and the spices, and the precious ointment, and all the house of his armour, and all that was found in his treasures: there was nothing in his house, nor in all his dominion, that Hezekiah shewed them not.

kjv@2Kings:20:14 @ Then came Isaiah the prophet unto king Hezekiah, and said unto him, What said these men? and from whence came they unto thee? And Hezekiah said, They are come from a far country, even from Babylon.

kjv@2Kings:20:15 @ And he said, What have they seen in thine house? And Hezekiah answered, All the things that are in mine house have they seen: there is nothing among my treasures that I have not shewed them.

kjv@2Kings:20:16 @ And Isaiah said unto Hezekiah, Hear the word of the LORD.

kjv@2Kings:20:17 @ Behold, the days come, that all that is in thine house, and that which thy fathers have laid up in store unto this day, shall be carried into Babylon: nothing shall be left, saith the LORD.

kjv@2Kings:21:1 @ Manasseh was twelve years old when he began to reign, and reigned fifty and five years in Jerusalem. And his mother's name was Hephzibah.

kjv@2Kings:21:2 @ And he did that which was evil in the sight of the LORD, after the abominations of the heathen, whom the LORD cast out before the children of Israel.

kjv@2Kings:21:3 @ For he built up again the high places which Hezekiah his father had destroyed; and he reared up altars for Baal, and made a grove, as did Ahab king of Israel; and worshipped all the host of heaven, and served them.

kjv@2Kings:21:4 @ And he built altars in the house of the LORD, of which the LORD said, In Jerusalem will I put my name.

kjv@2Kings:21:5 @ And he built altars for all the host of heaven in the two courts of the house of the LORD.

kjv@2Kings:21:6 @ And he made his son pass through the fire, and observed times, and used enchantments, and dealt with familiar spirits and wizards: he wrought much wickedness in the sight of the LORD, to provoke him to anger.

kjv@2Kings:21:7 @ And he set a graven image of the grove that he had made in the house, of which the LORD said to David, and to Solomon his son, In this house, and in Jerusalem, which I have chosen out of all tribes of Israel, will I put my name for ever:

kjv@2Kings:21:8 @ Neither will I make the feet of Israel move any more out of the land which I gave their fathers; only if they will observe to do according to all that I have commanded them, and according to all the law that my servant Moses commanded them.

kjv@2Kings:21:9 @ But they hearkened not: and Manasseh seduced them to do more evil than did the nations whom the LORD destroyed before the children of Israel.

kjv@2Kings:21:10 @ And the LORD spake by his servants the prophets, saying,

kjv@2Kings:21:11 @ Because Manasseh king of Judah hath done these abominations, and hath done wickedly above all that the Amorites did, which were before him, and hath made Judah also to sin with his idols:

kjv@2Kings:21:12 @ Therefore thus saith the LORD God of Israel, Behold, I am bringing such evil upon Jerusalem and Judah, that whosoever heareth of it, both his ears shall tingle.

kjv@2Kings:21:13 @ And I will stretch over Jerusalem the line of Samaria, and the plummet of the house of Ahab: and I will wipe Jerusalem as a man wipeth a dish, wiping it, and turning it upside down.

kjv@2Kings:21:14 @ And I will forsake the remnant of mine inheritance, and deliver them into the hand of their enemies; and they shall become a prey and a spoil to all their enemies;

kjv@2Kings:21:15 @ Because they have done that which was evil in my sight, and have provoked me to anger, since the day their fathers came forth out of Egypt, even unto this day.

kjv@2Kings:21:16 @ Moreover Manasseh shed innocent blood very much, till he had filled Jerusalem from one end to another; beside his sin wherewith he made Judah to sin, in doing that which was evil in the sight of the LORD.

kjv@2Kings:23:29 @ In his days Pharaohnechoh king of Egypt went up against the king of Assyria to the river Euphrates: and king Josiah went against him; and he slew him at Megiddo, when he had seen him.

kjv@2Kings:23:30 @ And his servants carried him in a chariot dead from Megiddo, and brought him to Jerusalem, and buried him in his own sepulchre. And the people of the land took Jehoahaz the son of Josiah, and anointed him, and made him king in his father's stead.

kjv@2Kings:23:31 @ Jehoahaz was twenty and three years old when he began to reign; and he reigned three months in Jerusalem. And his mother's name was Hamutal, the daughter of Jeremiah of Libnah.

kjv@2Kings:23:32 @ And he did that which was evil in the sight of the LORD, according to all that his fathers had done.

kjv@2Kings:23:33 @ And Pharaohnechoh put him in bands at Riblah in the land of Hamath, that he might not reign in Jerusalem; and put the land to a tribute of an hundred talents of silver, and a talent of gold.

kjv@2Kings:23:34 @ And Pharaohnechoh made Eliakim the son of Josiah king in the room of Josiah his father, and turned his name to Jehoiakim, and took Jehoahaz away: and he came to Egypt, and died there.

kjv@2Kings:23:35 @ And Jehoiakim gave the silver and the gold to Pharaoh; but he taxed the land to give the money according to the commandment of Pharaoh: he exacted the silver and the gold of the people of the land, of every one according to his taxation, to give it unto Pharaohnechoh.

kjv@2Kings:23:36 @ Jehoiakim was twenty and five years old when he began to reign; and he reigned eleven years in Jerusalem. And his mother's name was Zebudah, the daughter of Pedaiah of Rumah.

kjv@2Kings:24:1 @ In his days Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon came up, and Jehoiakim became his servant three years: then he turned and rebelled against him.

kjv@2Kings:24:7 @ And the king of Egypt came not again any more out of his land: for the king of Babylon had taken from the river of Egypt unto the river Euphrates all that pertained to the king of Egypt.

kjv@2Kings:24:8 @ Jehoiachin was eighteen years old when he began to reign, and he reigned in Jerusalem three months. And his mother's name was Nehushta, the daughter of Elnathan of Jerusalem.

kjv@2Kings:24:12 @ And Jehoiachin the king of Judah went out to the king of Babylon, he, and his mother, and his servants, and his princes, and his officers: and the king of Babylon took him in the eighth year of his reign.

kjv@2Kings:24:13 @ And he carried out thence all the treasures of the house of the LORD, and the treasures of the king's house, and cut in pieces all the vessels of gold which Solomon king of Israel had made in the temple of the LORD, as the LORD had said.

kjv@2Kings:24:14 @ And he carried away all Jerusalem, and all the princes, and all the mighty men of valour, even ten thousand captives, and all the craftsmen and smiths: none remained, save the poorest sort of the people of the land.

kjv@2Kings:24:15 @ And he carried away Jehoiachin to Babylon, and the king's mother, and the king's wives, and his officers, and the mighty of the land, those carried he into captivity from Jerusalem to Babylon.

kjv@2Kings:24:16 @ And all the men of might, even seven thousand, and craftsmen and smiths a thousand, all that were strong and apt for war, even them the king of Babylon brought captive to Babylon.

kjv@2Kings:24:19 @ And he did that which was evil in the sight of the LORD, according to all that Jehoiakim had done.

kjv@2Kings:24:20 @ For through the anger of the LORD it came to pass in Jerusalem and Judah, until he had cast them out from his presence, that Zedekiah rebelled against the king of Babylon.

kjv@2Kings:25:1 @ And it came to pass in the ninth year of his reign, in the tenth month, in the tenth day of the month, that Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon came, he, and all his host, against Jerusalem, and pitched against it; and they built forts against it round about.

kjv@2Kings:25:2 @ And the city was besieged unto the eleventh year of king Zedekiah.

kjv@2Kings:25:3 @ And on the ninth day of the fourth month the famine prevailed in the city, and there was no bread for the people of the land.

kjv@2Kings:25:4 @ And the city was broken up, and all the men of war fled by night by the way of the gate between two walls, which is by the king's garden: (now the Chaldees were against the city round about:) and the king went the way toward the plain.

kjv@2Kings:25:5 @ And the army of the Chaldees pursued after the king, and overtook him in the plains of Jericho: and all his army were scattered from him.

kjv@2Kings:25:6 @ So they took the king, and brought him up to the king of Babylon to Riblah; and they gave judgment upon him.

kjv@2Kings:25:7 @ And they slew the sons of Zedekiah before his eyes, and put out the eyes of Zedekiah, and bound him with fetters of brass, and carried him to Babylon.

kjv@2Kings:25:8 @ And in the fifth month, on the seventh day of the month, which is the nineteenth year of king Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon, came Nebuzaradan, captain of the guard, a servant of the king of Babylon, unto Jerusalem:

kjv@2Kings:25:9 @ And he burnt the house of the LORD, and the king's house, and all the houses of Jerusalem, and every great man's house burnt he with fire.

kjv@2Kings:25:10 @ And all the army of the Chaldees, that were with the captain of the guard, brake down the walls of Jerusalem round about.

kjv@2Kings:25:11 @ Now the rest of the people that were left in the city, and the fugitives that fell away to the king of Babylon, with the remnant of the multitude, did Nebuzaradan the captain of the guard carry away.

kjv@2Kings:25:12 @ But the captain of the guard left of the poor of the land to be vinedressers and husbandmen.

kjv@2Kings:25:13 @ And the pillars of brass that were in the house of the LORD, and the bases, and the brasen sea that was in the house of the LORD, did the Chaldees break in pieces, and carried the brass of them to Babylon.

kjv@2Kings:25:14 @ And the pots, and the shovels, and the snuffers, and the spoons, and all the vessels of brass wherewith they ministered, took they away.

kjv@2Kings:25:15 @ And the firepans, and the bowls, and such things as were of gold, in gold, and of silver, in silver, the captain of the guard took away.

kjv@2Kings:25:16 @ The two pillars, one sea, and the bases which Solomon had made for the house of the LORD; the brass of all these vessels was without weight.

kjv@2Kings:25:17 @ The height of the one pillar was eighteen cubits, and the chapiter upon it was brass: and the height of the chapiter three cubits; and the wreathen work, and pomegranates upon the chapiter round about, all of brass: and like unto these had the second pillar with wreathen work.

kjv@2Kings:25:18 @ And the captain of the guard took Seraiah the chief priest, and Zephaniah the second priest, and the three keepers of the door:

kjv@2Kings:25:19 @ And out of the city he took an officer that was set over the men of war, and five men of them that were in the king's presence, which were found in the city, and the principal scribe of the host, which mustered the people of the land, and threescore men of the people of the land that were found in the city:

kjv@2Kings:25:20 @ And Nebuzaradan captain of the guard took these, and brought them to the king of Babylon to Riblah:

kjv@2Kings:25:21 @ And the king of Babylon smote them, and slew them at Riblah in the land of Hamath. So Judah was carried away out of their land.

kjv@2Kings:25:22 @ And as for the people that remained in the land of Judah, whom Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon had left, even over them he made Gedaliah the son of Ahikam, the son of Shaphan, ruler.

kjv@2Kings:25:23 @ And when all the captains of the armies, they and their men, heard that the king of Babylon had made Gedaliah governor, there came to Gedaliah to Mizpah, even Ishmael the son of Nethaniah, and Johanan the son of Careah, and Seraiah the son of Tanhumeth the Netophathite, and Jaazaniah the son of a Maachathite, they and their men.

kjv@2Kings:25:24 @ And Gedaliah sware to them, and to their men, and said unto them, Fear not to be the servants of the Chaldees: dwell in the land, and serve the king of Babylon; and it shall be well with you.

kjv@2Kings:25:25 @ But it came to pass in the seventh month, that Ishmael the son of Nethaniah, the son of Elishama, of the seed royal, came, and ten men with him, and smote Gedaliah, that he died, and the Jews and the Chaldees that were with him at Mizpah.

kjv@2Kings:25:26 @ And all the people, both small and great, and the captains of the armies, arose, and came to Egypt: for they were afraid of the Chaldees.

kjv@2Kings:25:27 @ And it came to pass in the seven and thirtieth year of the captivity of Jehoiachin king of Judah, in the twelfth month, on the seven and twentieth day of the month, that Evilmerodach king of Babylon in the year that he began to reign did lift up the head of Jehoiachin king of Judah out of prison;

kjv@2Kings:25:28 @ And he spake kindly to him, and set his throne above the throne of the kings that were with him in Babylon;

kjv@2Kings:25:29 @ And changed his prison garments: and he did eat bread continually before him all the days of his life.

kjv@2Kings:25:30 @ And his allowance was a continual allowance given him of the king, a daily rate for every day, all the days of his life.

kjv@1Chronicles:13:1 @ And David consulted with the captains of thousands and hundreds, and with every leader.

kjv@1Chronicles:13:2 @ And David said unto all the congregation of Israel, If it seem good unto you, and that it be of the LORD our God, let us send abroad unto our brethren every where, that are left in all the land of Israel, and with them also to the priests and Levites which are in their cities and suburbs, that they may gather themselves unto us:

kjv@1Chronicles:13:3 @ And let us bring again the ark of our God to us: for we enquired not at it in the days of Saul.

kjv@1Chronicles:13:4 @ And all the congregation said that they would do so: for the thing was right in the eyes of all the people.

kjv@1Chronicles:13:5 @ So David gathered all Israel together, from Shihor of Egypt even unto the entering of Hemath, to bring the ark of God from Kirjathjearim.

kjv@1Chronicles:13:6 @ And David went up, and all Israel, to Baalah, that is, to Kirjathjearim, which belonged to Judah, to bring up thence the ark of God the LORD, that dwelleth between the cherubims, whose name is called on it.

kjv@1Chronicles:13:7 @ And they carried the ark of God in a new cart out of the house of Abinadab: and Uzza and Ahio drave the cart.

kjv@1Chronicles:13:8 @ And David and all Israel played before God with all their might, and with singing, and with harps, and with psalteries, and with timbrels, and with cymbals, and with trumpets.

kjv@1Chronicles:13:9 @ And when they came unto the threshingfloor of Chidon, Uzza put forth his hand to hold the ark; for the oxen stumbled.

kjv@1Chronicles:13:10 @ And the anger of the LORD was kindled against Uzza, and he smote him, because he put his hand to the ark: and there he died before God.

kjv@1Chronicles:13:11 @ And David was displeased, because the LORD had made a breach upon Uzza: wherefore that place is called Perezuzza to this day.

kjv@1Chronicles:13:12 @ And David was afraid of God that day, saying, How shall I bring the ark of God home to me?

kjv@1Chronicles:13:13 @ So David brought not the ark home to himself to the city of David, but carried it aside into the house of Obededom the Gittite.

kjv@1Chronicles:13:14 @ And the ark of God remained with the family of Obededom in his house three months. And the LORD blessed the house of Obededom, and all that he had.

kjv@1Chronicles:14:1 @ Now Hiram king of Tyre sent messengers to David, and timber of cedars, with masons and carpenters, to build him an house.

kjv@1Chronicles:14:2 @ And David perceived that the LORD had confirmed him king over Israel, for his kingdom was lifted up on high, because of his people Israel.

kjv@1Chronicles:14:3 @ And David took more wives at Jerusalem: and David begat more sons and daughters.

kjv@1Chronicles:14:4 @ Now these are the names of his children which he had in Jerusalem; Shammua, and Shobab, Nathan, and Solomon,

kjv@1Chronicles:14:5 @ And Ibhar, and Elishua, and Elpalet,

kjv@1Chronicles:14:6 @ And Nogah, and Nepheg, and Japhia,

kjv@1Chronicles:14:7 @ And Elishama, and Beeliada, and Eliphalet.

kjv@1Chronicles:14:8 @ And when the Philistines heard that David was anointed king over all Israel, all the Philistines went up to seek David. And David heard of it, and went out against them.

kjv@1Chronicles:14:9 @ And the Philistines came and spread themselves in the valley of Rephaim.

kjv@1Chronicles:14:10 @ And David enquired of God, saying, Shall I go up against the Philistines? and wilt thou deliver them into mine hand? And the LORD said unto him, Go up; for I will deliver them into thine hand.

kjv@1Chronicles:14:11 @ So they came up to Baalperazim; and David smote them there. Then David said, God hath broken in upon mine enemies by mine hand like the breaking forth of waters: therefore they called the name of that place Baalperazim.

kjv@1Chronicles:14:12 @ And when they had left their gods there, David gave a commandment, and they were burned with fire.

kjv@1Chronicles:14:13 @ And the Philistines yet again spread themselves abroad in the valley.

kjv@1Chronicles:14:14 @ Therefore David enquired again of God; and God said unto him, Go not up after them; turn away from them, and come upon them over against the mulberry trees.

kjv@1Chronicles:14:15 @ And it shall be, when thou shalt hear a sound of going in the tops of the mulberry trees, that then thou shalt go out to battle: for God is gone forth before thee to smite the host of the Philistines.

kjv@1Chronicles:14:16 @ David therefore did as God commanded him: and they smote the host of the Philistines from Gibeon even to Gazer.

kjv@1Chronicles:14:17 @ And the fame of David went out into all lands; and the LORD brought the fear of him upon all nations.

kjv@1Chronicles:15:1 @ And David made him houses in the city of David, and prepared a place for the ark of God, and pitched for it a tent.

kjv@1Chronicles:15:2 @ Then David said, None ought to carry the ark of God but the Levites: for them hath the LORD chosen to carry the ark of God, and to minister unto him for ever.

kjv@1Chronicles:15:3 @ And David gathered all Israel together to Jerusalem, to bring up the ark of the LORD unto his place, which he had prepared for it.

kjv@1Chronicles:15:4 @ And David assembled the children of Aaron, and the Levites:

kjv@1Chronicles:15:5 @ Of the sons of Kohath; Uriel the chief, and his brethren an hundred and twenty:

kjv@1Chronicles:15:6 @ Of the sons of Merari; Asaiah the chief, and his brethren two hundred and twenty:

kjv@1Chronicles:15:7 @ Of the sons of Gershom; Joel the chief, and his brethren an hundred and thirty:

kjv@1Chronicles:15:8 @ Of the sons of Elizaphan; Shemaiah the chief, and his brethren two hundred:

kjv@1Chronicles:15:9 @ Of the sons of Hebron; Eliel the chief, and his brethren fourscore:

kjv@1Chronicles:15:10 @ Of the sons of Uzziel; Amminadab the chief, and his brethren an hundred and twelve.

kjv@1Chronicles:15:11 @ And David called for Zadok and Abiathar the priests, and for the Levites, for Uriel, Asaiah, and Joel, Shemaiah, and Eliel, and Amminadab,

kjv@1Chronicles:15:12 @ And said unto them, Ye are the chief of the fathers of the Levites: sanctify yourselves, both ye and your brethren, that ye may bring up the ark of the LORD God of Israel unto the place that I have prepared for it.

kjv@1Chronicles:15:13 @ For because ye did it not at the first, the LORD our God made a breach upon us, for that we sought him not after the due order.

kjv@1Chronicles:15:14 @ So the priests and the Levites sanctified themselves to bring up the ark of the LORD God of Israel.

kjv@1Chronicles:15:15 @ And the children of the Levites bare the ark of God upon their shoulders with the staves thereon, as Moses commanded according to the word of the LORD.

kjv@1Chronicles:15:16 @ And David spake to the chief of the Levites to appoint their brethren to be the singers with instruments of musick, psalteries and harps and cymbals, sounding, by lifting up the voice with joy.

kjv@1Chronicles:15:17 @ So the Levites appointed Heman the son of Joel; and of his brethren, Asaph the son of Berechiah; and of the sons of Merari their brethren, Ethan the son of Kushaiah;

kjv@1Chronicles:15:18 @ And with them their brethren of the second degree, Zechariah, Ben, and Jaaziel, and Shemiramoth, and Jehiel, and Unni, Eliab, and Benaiah, and Maaseiah, and Mattithiah, and Elipheleh, and Mikneiah, and Obededom, and Jeiel, the porters.

kjv@1Chronicles:15:19 @ So the singers, Heman, Asaph, and Ethan, were appointed to sound with cymbals of brass;

kjv@1Chronicles:15:20 @ And Zechariah, and Aziel, and Shemiramoth, and Jehiel, and Unni, and Eliab, and Maaseiah, and Benaiah, with psalteries on Alamoth;

kjv@1Chronicles:15:21 @ And Mattithiah, and Elipheleh, and Mikneiah, and Obededom, and Jeiel, and Azaziah, with harps on the Sheminith to excel.

kjv@1Chronicles:15:22 @ And Chenaniah, chief of the Levites, was for song: he instructed about the song, because he was skilful.

kjv@1Chronicles:15:23 @ And Berechiah and Elkanah were doorkeepers for the ark.

kjv@1Chronicles:15:24 @ And Shebaniah, and Jehoshaphat, and Nethaneel, and Amasai, and Zechariah, and Benaiah, and Eliezer, the priests, did blow with the trumpets before the ark of God: and Obededom and Jehiah were doorkeepers for the ark.

kjv@1Chronicles:15:25 @ So David, and the elders of Israel, and the captains over thousands, went to bring up the ark of the covenant of the LORD out of the house of Obededom with joy.

kjv@1Chronicles:15:26 @ And it came to pass, when God helped the Levites that bare the ark of the covenant of the LORD, that they offered seven bullocks and seven rams.

kjv@1Chronicles:15:27 @ And David was clothed with a robe of fine linen, and all the Levites that bare the ark, and the singers, and Chenaniah the master of the song with the singers: David also had upon him an ephod of linen.

kjv@1Chronicles:15:28 @ Thus all Israel brought up the ark of the covenant of the LORD with shouting, and with sound of the cornet, and with trumpets, and with cymbals, making a noise with psalteries and harps.

kjv@1Chronicles:15:29 @ And it came to pass, as the ark of the covenant of the LORD came to the city of David, that Michal the daughter of Saul looking out at a window saw king David dancing and playing: and she despised him in her heart.

kjv@1Chronicles:16:1 @ So they brought the ark of God, and set it in the midst of the tent that David had pitched for it: and they offered burnt sacrifices and peace offerings before God.

kjv@1Chronicles:16:2 @ And when David had made an end of offering the burnt offerings and the peace offerings, he blessed the people in the name of the LORD.

kjv@1Chronicles:16:3 @ And he dealt to every one of Israel, both man and woman, to every one a loaf of bread, and a good piece of flesh, and a flagon of wine.

kjv@1Chronicles:16:4 @ And he appointed certain of the Levites to minister before the ark of the LORD, and to record, and to thank and praise the LORD God of Israel:

kjv@1Chronicles:16:5 @ Asaph the chief, and next to him Zechariah, Jeiel, and Shemiramoth, and Jehiel, and Mattithiah, and Eliab, and Benaiah, and Obededom: and Jeiel with psalteries and with harps; but Asaph made a sound with cymbals;

kjv@1Chronicles:16:6 @ Benaiah also and Jahaziel the priests with trumpets continually before the ark of the covenant of God.

kjv@1Chronicles:16:7 @ Then on that day David delivered first this psalm to thank the LORD into the hand of Asaph and his brethren.

kjv@1Chronicles:16:8 @ Give thanks unto the LORD, call upon his name, make known his deeds among the people.

kjv@1Chronicles:16:9 @ Sing unto him, sing psalms unto him, talk ye of all his wondrous works.

kjv@1Chronicles:16:10 @ Glory ye in his holy name: let the heart of them rejoice that seek the LORD.

kjv@1Chronicles:16:11 @ Seek the LORD and his strength, seek his face continually.

kjv@1Chronicles:16:12 @ Remember his marvellous works that he hath done, his wonders, and the judgments of his mouth;

kjv@1Chronicles:16:13 @ O ye seed of Israel his servant, ye children of Jacob, his chosen ones.

kjv@1Chronicles:16:14 @ He is the LORD our God; his judgments are in all the earth.

kjv@1Chronicles:16:15 @ Be ye mindful always of his covenant; the word which he commanded to a thousand generations;

kjv@1Chronicles:16:16 @ Even of the covenant which he made with Abraham, and of his oath unto Isaac;

kjv@1Chronicles:16:17 @ And hath confirmed the same to Jacob for a law, and to Israel for an everlasting covenant,

kjv@1Chronicles:16:18 @ Saying, Unto thee will I give the land of Canaan, the lot of your inheritance;

kjv@1Chronicles:16:19 @ When ye were but few, even a few, and strangers in it.

kjv@1Chronicles:16:20 @ And when they went from nation to nation, and from one kingdom to another people;

kjv@1Chronicles:16:21 @ He suffered no man to do them wrong: yea, he reproved kings for their sakes,

kjv@1Chronicles:16:22 @ Saying, Touch not mine anointed, and do my prophets no harm.

kjv@1Chronicles:16:23 @ Sing unto the LORD, all the earth; shew forth from day to day his salvation.

kjv@1Chronicles:16:24 @ Declare his glory among the heathen; his marvellous works among all nations.

kjv@1Chronicles:16:25 @ For great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised: he also is to be feared above all gods.

kjv@1Chronicles:16:26 @ For all the gods of the people are idols: but the LORD made the heavens.

kjv@1Chronicles:16:27 @ Glory and honour are in his presence; strength and gladness are in his place.

kjv@1Chronicles:16:28 @ Give unto the LORD, ye kindreds of the people, give unto the LORD glory and strength.

kjv@1Chronicles:16:29 @ Give unto the LORD the glory due unto his name: bring an offering, and come before him: worship the LORD in the beauty of holiness.

kjv@1Chronicles:16:30 @ Fear before him, all the earth: the world also shall be stable, that it be not moved.

kjv@1Chronicles:16:31 @ Let the heavens be glad, and let the earth rejoice: and let men say among the nations, The LORD reigneth.

kjv@1Chronicles:16:32 @ Let the sea roar, and the fulness thereof: let the fields rejoice, and all that is therein.

kjv@1Chronicles:16:33 @ Then shall the trees of the wood sing out at the presence of the LORD, because he cometh to judge the earth.

kjv@1Chronicles:16:34 @ O give thanks unto the LORD; for he is good; for his mercy endureth for ever.

kjv@1Chronicles:16:35 @ And say ye, Save us, O God of our salvation, and gather us together, and deliver us from the heathen, that we may give thanks to thy holy name, and glory in thy praise.

kjv@1Chronicles:16:36 @ Blessed be the LORD God of Israel for ever and ever. And all the people said, Amen, and praised the LORD.

kjv@1Chronicles:16:37 @ So he left there before the ark of the covenant of the LORD Asaph and his brethren, to minister before the ark continually, as every day's work required:

kjv@1Chronicles:16:38 @ And Obededom with their brethren, threescore and eight; Obededom also the son of Jeduthun and Hosah to be porters:

kjv@1Chronicles:16:39 @ And Zadok the priest, and his brethren the priests, before the tabernacle of the LORD in the high place that was at Gibeon,

kjv@1Chronicles:16:40 @ To offer burnt offerings unto the LORD upon the altar of the burnt offering continually morning and evening, and to do according to all that is written in the law of the LORD, which he commanded Israel;

kjv@1Chronicles:16:41 @ And with them Heman and Jeduthun, and the rest that were chosen, who were expressed by name, to give thanks to the LORD, because his mercy endureth for ever;

kjv@1Chronicles:16:42 @ And with them Heman and Jeduthun with trumpets and cymbals for those that should make a sound, and with musical instruments of God. And the sons of Jeduthun were porters.

kjv@1Chronicles:16:43 @ And all the people departed every man to his house: and David returned to bless his house.

kjv@1Chronicles:17:1 @ Now it came to pass, as David sat in his house, that David said to Nathan the prophet, Lo, I dwell in an house of cedars, but the ark of the covenant of the LORD remaineth under curtains.

kjv@1Chronicles:17:2 @ Then Nathan said unto David, Do all that is in thine heart; for God is with thee.

kjv@1Chronicles:17:3 @ And it came to pass the same night, that the word of God came to Nathan, saying,

kjv@1Chronicles:17:4 @ Go and tell David my servant, Thus saith the LORD, Thou shalt not build me an house to dwell in:

kjv@1Chronicles:17:5 @ For I have not dwelt in an house since the day that I brought up Israel unto this day; but have gone from tent to tent, and from one tabernacle to another.

kjv@1Chronicles:17:6 @ Wheresoever I have walked with all Israel, spake I a word to any of the judges of Israel, whom I commanded to feed my people, saying, Why have ye not built me an house of cedars?

kjv@1Chronicles:17:7 @ Now therefore thus shalt thou say unto my servant David, Thus saith the LORD of hosts, I took thee from the sheepcote, even from following the sheep, that thou shouldest be ruler over my people Israel:

kjv@1Chronicles:17:8 @ And I have been with thee whithersoever thou hast walked, and have cut off all thine enemies from before thee, and have made thee a name like the name of the great men that are in the earth.

kjv@1Chronicles:17:9 @ Also I will ordain a place for my people Israel, and will plant them, and they shall dwell in their place, and shall be moved no more; neither shall the children of wickedness waste them any more, as at the beginning,

kjv@1Chronicles:17:10 @ And since the time that I commanded judges to be over my people Israel. Moreover I will subdue all thine enemies. Furthermore I tell thee that the LORD will build thee an house.

kjv@1Chronicles:17:11 @ And it shall come to pass, when thy days be expired that thou must go to be with thy fathers, that I will raise up thy seed after thee, which shall be of thy sons; and I will establish his kingdom.

kjv@1Chronicles:17:12 @ He shall build me an house, and I will stablish his throne for ever.

kjv@1Chronicles:17:13 @ I will be his father, and he shall be my son: and I will not take my mercy away from him, as I took it from him that was before thee:

kjv@1Chronicles:17:14 @ But I will settle him in mine house and in my kingdom for ever: and his throne shall be established for evermore.

kjv@1Chronicles:17:15 @ According to all these words, and according to all this vision, so did Nathan speak unto David.

kjv@1Chronicles:17:16 @ And David the king came and sat before the LORD, and said, Who am I, O LORD God, and what is mine house, that thou hast brought me hitherto?

kjv@1Chronicles:17:17 @ And yet this was a small thing in thine eyes, O God; for thou hast also spoken of thy servant's house for a great while to come, and hast regarded me according to the estate of a man of high degree, O LORD God.

kjv@1Chronicles:17:18 @ What can David speak more to thee for the honour of thy servant? for thou knowest thy servant.

kjv@1Chronicles:17:19 @ O LORD, for thy servant's sake, and according to thine own heart, hast thou done all this greatness, in making known all these great things.

kjv@1Chronicles:17:20 @ O LORD, there is none like thee, neither is there any God beside thee, according to all that we have heard with our ears.

kjv@1Chronicles:17:21 @ And what one nation in the earth is like thy people Israel, whom God went to redeem to be his own people, to make thee a name of greatness and terribleness, by driving out nations from before thy people, whom thou hast redeemed out of Egypt?

kjv@1Chronicles:17:22 @ For thy people Israel didst thou make thine own people for ever; and thou, LORD, becamest their God.

kjv@1Chronicles:17:23 @ Therefore now, LORD, let the thing that thou hast spoken concerning thy servant and concerning his house be established for ever, and do as thou hast said.

kjv@1Chronicles:17:24 @ Let it even be established, that thy name may be magnified for ever, saying, The LORD of hosts is the God of Israel, even a God to Israel: and let the house of David thy servant be established before thee.

kjv@1Chronicles:17:25 @ For thou, O my God, hast told thy servant that thou wilt build him an house: therefore thy servant hath found in his heart to pray before thee.

kjv@1Chronicles:17:26 @ And now, LORD, thou art God, and hast promised this goodness unto thy servant:

kjv@1Chronicles:17:27 @ Now therefore let it please thee to bless the house of thy servant, that it may be before thee for ever: for thou blessest, O LORD, and it shall be blessed for ever.

kjv@1Chronicles:18:1 @ Now after this it came to pass, that David smote the Philistines, and subdued them, and took Gath and her towns out of the hand of the Philistines.

kjv@1Chronicles:18:2 @ And he smote Moab; and the Moabites became David's servants, and brought gifts.

kjv@1Chronicles:18:3 @ And David smote Hadarezer king of Zobah unto Hamath, as he went to stablish his dominion by the river Euphrates.

kjv@1Chronicles:18:4 @ And David took from him a thousand chariots, and seven thousand horsemen, and twenty thousand footmen: David also houghed all the chariot horses, but reserved of them an hundred chariots.

kjv@1Chronicles:18:5 @ And when the Syrians of Damascus came to help Hadarezer king of Zobah, David slew of the Syrians two and twenty thousand men.

kjv@1Chronicles:18:6 @ Then David put garrisons in Syriadamascus; and the Syrians became David's servants, and brought gifts. Thus the LORD preserved David whithersoever he went.

kjv@1Chronicles:18:7 @ And David took the shields of gold that were on the servants of Hadarezer, and brought them to Jerusalem.

kjv@1Chronicles:18:8 @ Likewise from Tibhath, and from Chun, cities of Hadarezer, brought David very much brass, wherewith Solomon made the brasen sea, and the pillars, and the vessels of brass.

kjv@1Chronicles:18:9 @ Now when Tou king of Hamath heard how David had smitten all the host of Hadarezer king of Zobah;

kjv@1Chronicles:18:10 @ He sent Hadoram his son to king David, to enquire of his welfare, and to congratulate him, because he had fought against Hadarezer, and smitten him; (for Hadarezer had war with Tou;) and with him all manner of vessels of gold and silver and brass.

kjv@1Chronicles:18:11 @ Them also king David dedicated unto the LORD, with the silver and the gold that he brought from all these nations; from Edom, and from Moab, and from the children of Ammon, and from the Philistines, and from Amalek.

kjv@1Chronicles:18:12 @ Moreover Abishai the son of Zeruiah slew of the Edomites in the valley of salt eighteen thousand.

kjv@1Chronicles:18:13 @ And he put garrisons in Edom; and all the Edomites became David's servants. Thus the LORD preserved David whithersoever he went.

kjv@1Chronicles:18:14 @ So David reigned over all Israel, and executed judgment and justice among all his people.

kjv@1Chronicles:18:15 @ And Joab the son of Zeruiah was over the host; and Jehoshaphat the son of Ahilud, recorder.

kjv@1Chronicles:18:16 @ And Zadok the son of Ahitub, and Abimelech the son of Abiathar, were the priests; and Shavsha was scribe;

kjv@1Chronicles:18:17 @ And Benaiah the son of Jehoiada was over the Cherethites and the Pelethites; and the sons of David were chief about the king.

kjv@1Chronicles:19:1 @ Now it came to pass after this, that Nahash the king of the children of Ammon died, and his son reigned in his stead.

kjv@1Chronicles:19:2 @ And David said, I will shew kindness unto Hanun the son of Nahash, because his father shewed kindness to me. And David sent messengers to comfort him concerning his father. So the servants of David came into the land of the children of Ammon to Hanun, to comfort him.

kjv@1Chronicles:19:3 @ But the princes of the children of Ammon said to Hanun, Thinkest thou that David doth honour thy father, that he hath sent comforters unto thee? are not his servants come unto thee for to search, and to overthrow, and to spy out the land?

kjv@1Chronicles:19:4 @ Wherefore Hanun took David's servants, and shaved them, and cut off their garments in the midst hard by their buttocks, and sent them away.

kjv@1Chronicles:19:5 @ Then there went certain, and told David how the men were served. And he sent to meet them: for the men were greatly ashamed. And the king said, Tarry at Jericho until your beards be grown, and then return.

kjv@1Chronicles:19:6 @ And when the children of Ammon saw that they had made themselves odious to David, Hanun and the children of Ammon sent a thousand talents of silver to hire them chariots and horsemen out of Mesopotamia, and out of Syriamaachah, and out of Zobah.

kjv@1Chronicles:19:7 @ So they hired thirty and two thousand chariots, and the king of Maachah and his people; who came and pitched before Medeba. And the children of Ammon gathered themselves together from their cities, and came to battle.

kjv@1Chronicles:19:8 @ And when David heard of it, he sent Joab, and all the host of the mighty men.

kjv@1Chronicles:19:9 @ And the children of Ammon came out, and put the battle in array before the gate of the city: and the kings that were come were by themselves in the field.

kjv@1Chronicles:19:10 @ Now when Joab saw that the battle was set against him before and behind, he chose out of all the choice of Israel, and put them in array against the Syrians.

kjv@1Chronicles:19:11 @ And the rest of the people he delivered unto the hand of Abishai his brother, and they set themselves in array against the children of Ammon.

kjv@1Chronicles:19:12 @ And he said, If the Syrians be too strong for me, then thou shalt help me: but if the children of Ammon be too strong for thee, then I will help thee.

kjv@1Chronicles:19:13 @ Be of good courage, and let us behave ourselves valiantly for our people, and for the cities of our God: and let the LORD do that which is good in his sight.

kjv@1Chronicles:19:14 @ So Joab and the people that were with him drew nigh before the Syrians unto the battle; and they fled before him.

kjv@1Chronicles:19:15 @ And when the children of Ammon saw that the Syrians were fled, they likewise fled before Abishai his brother, and entered into the city. Then Joab came to Jerusalem.

kjv@1Chronicles:19:16 @ And when the Syrians saw that they were put to the worse before Israel, they sent messengers, and drew forth the Syrians that were beyond the river: and Shophach the captain of the host of Hadarezer went before them.

kjv@1Chronicles:19:17 @ And it was told David; and he gathered all Israel, and passed over Jordan, and came upon them, and set the battle in array against them. So when David had put the battle in array against the Syrians, they fought with him.

kjv@1Chronicles:19:18 @ But the Syrians fled before Israel; and David slew of the Syrians seven thousand men which fought in chariots, and forty thousand footmen, and killed Shophach the captain of the host.

kjv@1Chronicles:19:19 @ And when the servants of Hadarezer saw that they were put to the worse before Israel, they made peace with David, and became his servants: neither would the Syrians help the children of Ammon any more.

kjv@1Chronicles:20:1 @ And it came to pass, that after the year was expired, at the time that kings go out to battle, Joab led forth the power of the army, and wasted the country of the children of Ammon, and came and besieged Rabbah. But David tarried at Jerusalem. And Joab smote Rabbah, and destroyed it.

kjv@1Chronicles:20:2 @ And David took the crown of their king from off his head, and found it to weigh a talent of gold, and there were precious stones in it; and it was set upon David's head: and he brought also exceeding much spoil out of the city.

kjv@1Chronicles:20:3 @ And he brought out the people that were in it, and cut them with saws, and with harrows of iron, and with axes. Even so dealt David with all the cities of the children of Ammon. And David and all the people returned to Jerusalem.

kjv@1Chronicles:20:4 @ And it came to pass after this, that there arose war at Gezer with the Philistines; at which time Sibbechai the Hushathite slew Sippai, that was of the children of the giant: and they were subdued.

kjv@1Chronicles:20:5 @ And there was war again with the Philistines; and Elhanan the son of Jair slew Lahmi the brother of Goliath the Gittite, whose spear staff was like a weaver's beam.

kjv@1Chronicles:20:6 @ And yet again there was war at Gath, where was a man of great stature, whose fingers and toes were four and twenty, six on each hand, and six on each foot: and he also was the son of the giant.

kjv@1Chronicles:20:7 @ But when he defied Israel, Jonathan the son of Shimea David's brother slew him.

kjv@1Chronicles:20:8 @ These were born unto the giant in Gath; and they fell by the hand of David, and by the hand of his servants.

kjv@1Chronicles:21:1 @ And Satan stood up against Israel, and provoked David to number Israel.

kjv@1Chronicles:21:2 @ And David said to Joab and to the rulers of the people, Go, number Israel from Beersheba even to Dan; and bring the number of them to me, that I may know it.

kjv@1Chronicles:21:3 @ And Joab answered, The LORD make his people an hundred times so many more as they be: but, my lord the king, are they not all my lord's servants? why then doth my lord require this thing? why will he be a cause of trespass to Israel?

kjv@1Chronicles:21:4 @ Nevertheless the king's word prevailed against Joab. Wherefore Joab departed, and went throughout all Israel, and came to Jerusalem.

kjv@1Chronicles:21:5 @ And Joab gave the sum of the number of the people unto David. And all they of Israel were a thousand thousand and an hundred thousand men that drew sword: and Judah was four hundred threescore and ten thousand men that drew sword.

kjv@1Chronicles:21:6 @ But Levi and Benjamin counted he not among them: for the king's word was abominable to Joab.

kjv@1Chronicles:21:7 @ And God was displeased with this thing; therefore he smote Israel.

kjv@1Chronicles:21:8 @ And David said unto God, I have sinned greatly, because I have done this thing: but now, I beseech thee, do away the iniquity of thy servant; for I have done very foolishly.

kjv@1Chronicles:21:9 @ And the LORD spake unto Gad, David's seer, saying,

kjv@1Chronicles:21:10 @ Go and tell David, saying, Thus saith the LORD, I offer thee three things: choose thee one of them, that I may do it unto thee.

kjv@1Chronicles:21:11 @ So Gad came to David, and said unto him, Thus saith the LORD, Choose thee

kjv@1Chronicles:21:12 @ Either three years' famine; or three months to be destroyed before thy foes, while that the sword of thine enemies overtaketh thee; or else three days the sword of the LORD, even the pestilence, in the land, and the angel of the LORD destroying throughout all the coasts of Israel. Now therefore advise thyself what word I shall bring again to him that sent me.

kjv@1Chronicles:21:13 @ And David said unto Gad, I am in a great strait: let me fall now into the hand of the LORD; for very great are his mercies: but let me not fall into the hand of man.

kjv@1Chronicles:21:14 @ So the LORD sent pestilence upon Israel: and there fell of Israel seventy thousand men.

kjv@1Chronicles:21:15 @ And God sent an angel unto Jerusalem to destroy it: and as he was destroying, the LORD beheld, and he repented him of the evil, and said to the angel that destroyed, It is enough, stay now thine hand. And the angel of the LORD stood by the threshingfloor of Ornan the Jebusite.

kjv@1Chronicles:21:16 @ And David lifted up his eyes, and saw the angel of the LORD stand between the earth and the heaven, having a drawn sword in his hand stretched out over Jerusalem. Then David and the elders of Israel, who were clothed in sackcloth, fell upon their faces.

kjv@1Chronicles:21:17 @ And David said unto God, Is it not I that commanded the people to be numbered? even I it is that have sinned and done evil indeed; but as for these sheep, what have they done? let thine hand, I pray thee, O LORD my God, be on me, and on my father's house; but not on thy people, that they should be plagued.

kjv@1Chronicles:21:18 @ Then the angel of the LORD commanded Gad to say to David, that David should go up, and set up an altar unto the LORD in the threshingfloor of Ornan the Jebusite.

kjv@1Chronicles:21:19 @ And David went up at the saying of Gad, which he spake in the name of the LORD.

kjv@1Chronicles:21:20 @ And Ornan turned back, and saw the angel; and his four sons with him hid themselves. Now Ornan was threshing wheat.

kjv@1Chronicles:21:21 @ And as David came to Ornan, Ornan looked and saw David, and went out of the threshingfloor, and bowed himself to David with his face to the ground.

kjv@1Chronicles:21:22 @ Then David said to Ornan, Grant me the place of this threshingfloor, that I may build an altar therein unto the LORD: thou shalt grant it me for the full price: that the plague may be stayed from the people.

kjv@1Chronicles:21:23 @ And Ornan said unto David, Take it to thee, and let my lord the king do that which is good in his eyes: lo, I give thee the oxen also for burnt offerings, and the threshing instruments for wood, and the wheat for the meat offering; I give it all.

kjv@1Chronicles:21:24 @ And king David said to Ornan, Nay; but I will verily buy it for the full price: for I will not take that which is thine for the LORD, nor offer burnt offerings without cost.

kjv@1Chronicles:21:25 @ So David gave to Ornan for the place six hundred shekels of gold by weight.

kjv@1Chronicles:21:26 @ And David built there an altar unto the LORD, and offered burnt offerings and peace offerings, and called upon the LORD; and he answered him from heaven by fire upon the altar of burnt offering.

kjv@1Chronicles:21:27 @ And the LORD commanded the angel; and he put up his sword again into the sheath thereof.

kjv@1Chronicles:21:28 @ At that time when David saw that the LORD had answered him in the threshingfloor of Ornan the Jebusite, then he sacrificed there.

kjv@1Chronicles:21:29 @ For the tabernacle of the LORD, which Moses made in the wilderness, and the altar of the burnt offering, were at that season in the high place at Gibeon.

kjv@1Chronicles:21:30 @ But David could not go before it to enquire of God: for he was afraid because of the sword of the angel of the LORD.

kjv@1Chronicles:22:1 @ Then David said, This is the house of the LORD God, and this is the altar of the burnt offering for Israel.

kjv@1Chronicles:22:2 @ And David commanded to gather together the strangers that were in the land of Israel; and he set masons to hew wrought stones to build the house of God.

kjv@1Chronicles:22:3 @ And David prepared iron in abundance for the nails for the doors of the gates, and for the joinings; and brass in abundance without weight;

kjv@1Chronicles:22:4 @ Also cedar trees in abundance: for the Zidonians and they of Tyre brought much cedar wood to David.

kjv@1Chronicles:22:5 @ And David said, Solomon my son is young and tender, and the house that is to be builded for the LORD must be exceeding magnifical, of fame and of glory throughout all countries: I will therefore now make preparation for it. So David prepared abundantly before his death.

kjv@1Chronicles:22:6 @ Then he called for Solomon his son, and charged him to build an house for the LORD God of Israel.

kjv@1Chronicles:22:7 @ And David said to Solomon, My son, as for me, it was in my mind to build an house unto the name of the LORD my God:

kjv@1Chronicles:22:8 @ But the word of the LORD came to me, saying, Thou hast shed blood abundantly, and hast made great wars: thou shalt not build an house unto my name, because thou hast shed much blood upon the earth in my sight.

kjv@1Chronicles:22:9 @ Behold, a son shall be born to thee, who shall be a man of rest; and I will give him rest from all his enemies round about: for his name shall be Solomon, and I will give peace and quietness unto Israel in his days.

kjv@1Chronicles:22:10 @ He shall build an house for my name; and he shall be my son, and I will be his father; and I will establish the throne of his kingdom over Israel for ever.

kjv@1Chronicles:22:11 @ Now, my son, the LORD be with thee; and prosper thou, and build the house of the LORD thy God, as he hath said of thee.

kjv@1Chronicles:22:12 @ Only the LORD give thee wisdom and understanding, and give thee charge concerning Israel, that thou mayest keep the law of the LORD thy God.

kjv@1Chronicles:22:13 @ Then shalt thou prosper, if thou takest heed to fulfil the statutes and judgments which the LORD charged Moses with concerning Israel: be strong, and of good courage; dread not, nor be dismayed.

kjv@1Chronicles:22:14 @ Now, behold, in my trouble I have prepared for the house of the LORD an hundred thousand talents of gold, and a thousand thousand talents of silver; and of brass and iron without weight; for it is in abundance: timber also and stone have I prepared; and thou mayest add thereto.

kjv@1Chronicles:22:15 @ Moreover there are workmen with thee in abundance, hewers and workers of stone and timber, and all manner of cunning men for every manner of work.

kjv@1Chronicles:22:16 @ Of the gold, the silver, and the brass, and the iron, there is no number. Arise therefore, and be doing, and the LORD be with thee.

kjv@1Chronicles:22:17 @ David also commanded all the princes of Israel to help Solomon his son, saying,

kjv@1Chronicles:22:18 @ Is not the LORD your God with you? and hath he not given you rest on every side? for he hath given the inhabitants of the land into mine hand; and the land is subdued before the LORD, and before his people.

kjv@1Chronicles:22:19 @ Now set your heart and your soul to seek the LORD your God; arise therefore, and build ye the sanctuary of the LORD God, to bring the ark of the covenant of the LORD, and the holy vessels of God, into the house that is to be built to the name of the LORD.

kjv@1Chronicles:23:1 @ So when David was old and full of days, he made Solomon his son king over Israel.

kjv@1Chronicles:23:2 @ And he gathered together all the princes of Israel, with the priests and the Levites.

kjv@1Chronicles:23:3 @ Now the Levites were numbered from the age of thirty years and upward: and their number by their polls, man by man, was thirty and eight thousand.

kjv@1Chronicles:23:4 @ Of which, twenty and four thousand were to set forward the work of the house of the LORD; and six thousand were officers and judges:

kjv@1Chronicles:23:5 @ Moreover four thousand were porters; and four thousand praised the LORD with the instruments which I made, said David, to praise therewith.

kjv@1Chronicles:23:6 @ And David divided them into courses among the sons of Levi, namely, Gershon, Kohath, and Merari.

kjv@1Chronicles:23:7 @ Of the Gershonites were, Laadan, and Shimei.

kjv@1Chronicles:23:8 @ The sons of Laadan; the chief was Jehiel, and Zetham, and Joel, three.

kjv@1Chronicles:23:9 @ The sons of Shimei; Shelomith, and Haziel, and Haran, three. These were the chief of the fathers of Laadan.

kjv@1Chronicles:23:10 @ And the sons of Shimei were, Jahath, Zina, and Jeush, and Beriah. These four were the sons of Shimei.

kjv@1Chronicles:23:11 @ And Jahath was the chief, and Zizah the second: but Jeush and Beriah had not many sons; therefore they were in one reckoning, according to their father's house.

kjv@1Chronicles:23:12 @ The sons of Kohath; Amram, Izhar, Hebron, and Uzziel, four.

kjv@1Chronicles:23:13 @ The sons of Amram; Aaron and Moses: and Aaron was separated, that he should sanctify the most holy things, he and his sons for ever, to burn incense before the LORD, to minister unto him, and to bless in his name for ever.

kjv@1Chronicles:23:14 @ Now concerning Moses the man of God, his sons were named of the tribe of Levi.

kjv@1Chronicles:23:15 @ The sons of Moses were, Gershom, and Eliezer.

kjv@1Chronicles:23:16 @ Of the sons of Gershom, Shebuel was the chief.

kjv@1Chronicles:23:17 @ And the sons of Eliezer were, Rehabiah the chief. And Eliezer had none other sons; but the sons of Rehabiah were very many.

kjv@1Chronicles:23:18 @ Of the sons of Izhar; Shelomith the chief.

kjv@1Chronicles:23:19 @ Of the sons of Hebron; Jeriah the first, Amariah the second, Jahaziel the third, and Jekameam the fourth.

kjv@1Chronicles:23:20 @ Of the sons of Uzziel; Michah the first, and Jesiah the second.

kjv@1Chronicles:23:21 @ The sons of Merari; Mahli, and Mushi. The sons of Mahli; Eleazar, and Kish.

kjv@1Chronicles:23:22 @ And Eleazar died, and had no sons, but daughters: and their brethren the sons of Kish took them.

kjv@1Chronicles:23:23 @ The sons of Mushi; Mahli, and Eder, and Jeremoth, three.

kjv@1Chronicles:23:24 @ These were the sons of Levi after the house of their fathers; even the chief of the fathers, as they were counted by number of names by their polls, that did the work for the service of the house of the LORD, from the age of twenty years and upward.

kjv@1Chronicles:23:25 @ For David said, The LORD God of Israel hath given rest unto his people, that they may dwell in Jerusalem for ever:

kjv@1Chronicles:23:26 @ And also unto the Levites; they shall no more carry the tabernacle, nor any vessels of it for the service thereof.

kjv@1Chronicles:23:27 @ For by the last words of David the Levites were numbered from twenty years old and above:

kjv@1Chronicles:23:28 @ Because their office was to wait on the sons of Aaron for the service of the house of the LORD, in the courts, and in the chambers, and in the purifying of all holy things, and the work of the service of the house of God;

kjv@1Chronicles:23:29 @ Both for the shewbread, and for the fine flour for meat offering, and for the unleavened cakes, and for that which is baked in the pan, and for that which is fried, and for all manner of measure and size;

kjv@1Chronicles:23:30 @ And to stand every morning to thank and praise the LORD, and likewise at even;

kjv@1Chronicles:23:31 @ And to offer all burnt sacrifices unto the LORD in the sabbaths, in the new moons, and on the set feasts, by number, according to the order commanded unto them, continually before the LORD:

kjv@1Chronicles:23:32 @ And that they should keep the charge of the tabernacle of the congregation, and the charge of the holy place, and the charge of the sons of Aaron their brethren, in the service of the house of the LORD.

kjv@1Chronicles:24:1 @ Now these are the divisions of the sons of Aaron. The sons of Aaron; Nadab, and Abihu, Eleazar, and Ithamar.

kjv@1Chronicles:24:2 @ But Nadab and Abihu died before their father, and had no children: therefore Eleazar and Ithamar executed the priest's office.

kjv@1Chronicles:24:3 @ And David distributed them, both Zadok of the sons of Eleazar, and Ahimelech of the sons of Ithamar, according to their offices in their service.

kjv@1Chronicles:24:4 @ And there were more chief men found of the sons of Eleazar than of the sons of Ithamar; and thus were they divided. Among the sons of Eleazar there were sixteen chief men of the house of their fathers, and eight among the sons of Ithamar according to the house of their fathers.

kjv@1Chronicles:24:5 @ Thus were they divided by lot, one sort with another; for the governors of the sanctuary, and governors of the house of God, were of the sons of Eleazar, and of the sons of Ithamar.

kjv@1Chronicles:24:6 @ And Shemaiah the son of Nethaneel the scribe, one of the Levites, wrote them before the king, and the princes, and Zadok the priest, and Ahimelech the son of Abiathar, and before the chief of the fathers of the priests and Levites: one principal household being taken for Eleazar, and one taken for Ithamar.

kjv@1Chronicles:24:7 @ Now the first lot came forth to Jehoiarib, the second to Jedaiah,

kjv@1Chronicles:24:27 @ The sons of Merari by Jaaziah; Beno, and Shoham, and Zaccur, and Ibri.

kjv@1Chronicles:24:28 @ Of Mahli came Eleazar, who had no sons.

kjv@1Chronicles:24:29 @ Concerning Kish: the son of Kish was Jerahmeel.

kjv@1Chronicles:24:30 @ The sons also of Mushi; Mahli, and Eder, and Jerimoth. These were the sons of the Levites after the house of their fathers.

kjv@1Chronicles:24:31 @ These likewise cast lots over against their brethren the sons of Aaron in the presence of David the king, and Zadok, and Ahimelech, and the chief of the fathers of the priests and Levites, even the principal fathers over against their younger brethren.

kjv@1Chronicles:25:1 @ Moreover David and the captains of the host separated to the service of the sons of Asaph, and of Heman, and of Jeduthun, who should prophesy with harps, with psalteries, and with cymbals: and the number of the workmen according to their service was:

kjv@1Chronicles:25:2 @ Of the sons of Asaph; Zaccur, and Joseph, and Nethaniah, and Asarelah, the sons of Asaph under the hands of Asaph, which prophesied according to the order of the king.

kjv@1Chronicles:25:5 @ All these were the sons of Heman the king's seer in the words of God, to lift up the horn. And God gave to Heman fourteen sons and three daughters.

kjv@1Chronicles:25:6 @ All these were under the hands of their father for song in the house of the LORD, with cymbals, psalteries, and harps, for the service of the house of God, according to the king's order to Asaph, Jeduthun, and Heman.

kjv@1Chronicles:25:7 @ So the number of them, with their brethren that were instructed in the songs of the LORD, even all that were cunning, was two hundred fourscore and eight.

kjv@1Chronicles:25:8 @ And they cast lots, ward against ward, as well the small as the great, the teacher as the scholar.

kjv@1Chronicles:28:3 @ But God said unto me, Thou shalt not build an house for my name, because thou hast been a man of war, and hast shed blood.

kjv@1Chronicles:28:4 @ Howbeit the LORD God of Israel chose me before all the house of my father to be king over Israel for ever: for he hath chosen Judah to be the ruler; and of the house of Judah, the house of my father; and among the sons of my father he liked me to make me king over all Israel:

kjv@1Chronicles:28:5 @ And of all my sons, (for the LORD hath given me many sons,) he hath chosen Solomon my son to sit upon the throne of the kingdom of the LORD over Israel.

kjv@1Chronicles:28:6 @ And he said unto me, Solomon thy son, he shall build my house and my courts: for I have chosen him to be my son, and I will be his father.

kjv@1Chronicles:28:7 @ Moreover I will establish his kingdom for ever, if he be constant to do my commandments and my judgments, as at this day.

kjv@1Chronicles:28:8 @ Now therefore in the sight of all Israel the congregation of the LORD, and in the audience of our God, keep and seek for all the commandments of the LORD your God: that ye may possess this good land, and leave it for an inheritance for your children after you for ever.

kjv@1Chronicles:28:9 @ And thou, Solomon my son, know thou the God of thy father, and serve him with a perfect heart and with a willing mind: for the LORD searcheth all hearts, and understandeth all the imaginations of the thoughts: if thou seek him, he will be found of thee; but if thou forsake him, he will cast thee off for ever.

kjv@1Chronicles:28:10 @ Take heed now; for the LORD hath chosen thee to build an house for the sanctuary: be strong, and do it.

kjv@1Chronicles:28:11 @ Then David gave to Solomon his son the pattern of the porch, and of the houses thereof, and of the treasuries thereof, and of the upper chambers thereof, and of the inner parlours thereof, and of the place of the mercy seat,

kjv@1Chronicles:28:17 @ Also pure gold for the fleshhooks, and the bowls, and the cups: and for the golden basons he gave gold by weight for every bason; and likewise silver by weight for every bason of silver:

kjv@1Chronicles:28:18 @ And for the altar of incense refined gold by weight; and gold for the pattern of the chariot of the cherubims, that spread out their wings, and covered the ark of the covenant of the LORD.

kjv@1Chronicles:28:19 @ All this, said David, the LORD made me understand in writing by his hand upon me, even all the works of this pattern.

kjv@1Chronicles:28:20 @ And David said to Solomon his son, Be strong and of good courage, and do it: fear not, nor be dismayed: for the LORD God, even my God, will be with thee; he will not fail thee, nor forsake thee, until thou hast finished all the work for the service of the house of the LORD.

kjv@1Chronicles:28:21 @ And, behold, the courses of the priests and the Levites, even they shall be with thee for all the service of the house of God: and there shall be with thee for all manner of workmanship every willing skilful man, for any manner of service: also the princes and all the people will be wholly at thy commandment.

kjv@1Chronicles:29:1 @ Furthermore David the king said unto all the congregation, Solomon my son, whom alone God hath chosen, is yet young and tender, and the work is great: for the palace is not for man, but for the LORD God.

kjv@1Chronicles:29:2 @ Now I have prepared with all my might for the house of my God the gold for things to be made of gold, and the silver for things of silver, and the brass for things of brass, the iron for things of iron, and wood for things of wood; onyx stones, and stones to be set, glistering stones, and of divers colours, and all manner of precious stones, and marble stones in abundance.

kjv@1Chronicles:29:3 @ Moreover, because I have set my affection to the house of my God, I have of mine own proper good, of gold and silver, which I have given to the house of my God, over and above all that I have prepared for the holy house,

kjv@1Chronicles:29:4 @ Even three thousand talents of gold, of the gold of Ophir, and seven thousand talents of refined silver, to overlay the walls of the houses withal:

kjv@1Chronicles:29:5 @ The gold for things of gold, and the silver for things of silver, and for all manner of work to be made by the hands of artificers. And who then is willing to consecrate his service this day unto the LORD?

kjv@1Chronicles:29:6 @ Then the chief of the fathers and princes of the tribes of Israel, and the captains of thousands and of hundreds, with the rulers of the king's work, offered willingly,

kjv@1Chronicles:29:7 @ And gave for the service of the house of God of gold five thousand talents and ten thousand drams, and of silver ten thousand talents, and of brass eighteen thousand talents, and one hundred thousand talents of iron.

kjv@1Chronicles:29:8 @ And they with whom precious stones were found gave them to the treasure of the house of the LORD, by the hand of Jehiel the Gershonite.

kjv@1Chronicles:29:9 @ Then the people rejoiced, for that they offered willingly, because with perfect heart they offered willingly to the LORD: and David the king also rejoiced with great joy.

kjv@1Chronicles:29:10 @ Wherefore David blessed the LORD before all the congregation: and David said, Blessed be thou, LORD God of Israel our father, for ever and ever.

kjv@1Chronicles:29:11 @ Thine, O LORD, is the greatness, and the power, and the glory, and the victory, and the majesty: for all that is in the heaven and in the earth is thine; thine is the kingdom, O LORD, and thou art exalted as head above all.

kjv@1Chronicles:29:12 @ Both riches and honour come of thee, and thou reignest over all; and in thine hand is power and might; and in thine hand it is to make great, and to give strength unto all.

kjv@1Chronicles:29:13 @ Now therefore, our God, we thank thee, and praise thy glorious name.

kjv@1Chronicles:29:14 @ But who am I, and what is my people, that we should be able to offer so willingly after this sort? for all things come of thee, and of thine own have we given thee.

kjv@1Chronicles:29:15 @ For we are strangers before thee, and sojourners, as were all our fathers: our days on the earth are as a shadow, and there is none abiding.

kjv@1Chronicles:29:16 @ O LORD our God, all this store that we have prepared to build thee an house for thine holy name cometh of thine hand, and is all thine own.

kjv@1Chronicles:29:17 @ I know also, my God, that thou triest the heart, and hast pleasure in uprightness. As for me, in the uprightness of mine heart I have willingly offered all these things: and now have I seen with joy thy people, which are present here, to offer willingly unto thee.

kjv@1Chronicles:29:18 @ O LORD God of Abraham, Isaac, and of Israel, our fathers, keep this for ever in the imagination of the thoughts of the heart of thy people, and prepare their heart unto thee:

kjv@1Chronicles:29:19 @ And give unto Solomon my son a perfect heart, to keep thy commandments, thy testimonies, and thy statutes, and to do all these things, and to build the palace, for the which I have made provision.

kjv@1Chronicles:29:20 @ And David said to all the congregation, Now bless the LORD your God. And all the congregation blessed the LORD God of their fathers, and bowed down their heads, and worshipped the LORD, and the king.

kjv@1Chronicles:29:21 @ And they sacrificed sacrifices unto the LORD, and offered burnt offerings unto the LORD, on the morrow after that day, even a thousand bullocks, a thousand rams, and a thousand lambs, with their drink offerings, and sacrifices in abundance for all Israel:

kjv@1Chronicles:29:22 @ And did eat and drink before the LORD on that day with great gladness. And they made Solomon the son of David king the second time, and anointed him unto the LORD to be the chief governor, and Zadok to be priest.

kjv@1Chronicles:29:23 @ Then Solomon sat on the throne of the LORD as king instead of David his father, and prospered; and all Israel obeyed him.

kjv@1Chronicles:29:24 @ And all the princes, and the mighty men, and all the sons likewise of king David, submitted themselves unto Solomon the king.

kjv@1Chronicles:29:25 @ And the LORD magnified Solomon exceedingly in the sight of all Israel, and bestowed upon him such royal majesty as had not been on any king before him in Israel.

kjv@1Chronicles:29:26 @ Thus David the son of Jesse reigned over all Israel.

kjv@1Chronicles:29:27 @ And the time that he reigned over Israel was forty years; seven years reigned he in Hebron, and thirty and three years reigned he in Jerusalem.

kjv@1Chronicles:29:28 @ And he died in a good old age, full of days, riches, and honour: and Solomon his son reigned in his stead.

kjv@1Chronicles:29:29 @ Now the acts of David the king, first and last, behold, they are written in the book of Samuel the seer, and in the book of Nathan the prophet, and in the book of Gad the seer,

kjv@1Chronicles:29:30 @ With all his reign and his might, and the times that went over him, and over Israel, and over all the kingdoms of the countries.

kjv@2Chronicles:1:1 @ And Solomon the son of David was strengthened in his kingdom, and the LORD his God was with him, and magnified him exceedingly.

kjv@2Chronicles:1:2 @ Then Solomon spake unto all Israel, to the captains of thousands and of hundreds, and to the judges, and to every governor in all Israel, the chief of the fathers.

kjv@2Chronicles:1:3 @ So Solomon, and all the congregation with him, went to the high place that was at Gibeon; for there was the tabernacle of the congregation of God, which Moses the servant of the LORD had made in the wilderness.

kjv@2Chronicles:1:4 @ But the ark of God had David brought up from Kirjathjearim to the place which David had prepared for it: for he had pitched a tent for it at Jerusalem.

kjv@2Chronicles:1:5 @ Moreover the brasen altar, that Bezaleel the son of Uri, the son of Hur, had made, he put before the tabernacle of the LORD: and Solomon and the congregation sought unto it.

kjv@2Chronicles:1:6 @ And Solomon went up thither to the brasen altar before the LORD, which was at the tabernacle of the congregation, and offered a thousand burnt offerings upon it.

kjv@2Chronicles:1:7 @ In that night did God appear unto Solomon, and said unto him, Ask what I shall give thee.

kjv@2Chronicles:1:8 @ And Solomon said unto God, Thou hast shewed great mercy unto David my father, and hast made me to reign in his stead.

kjv@2Chronicles:1:9 @ Now, O LORD God, let thy promise unto David my father be established: for thou hast made me king over a people like the dust of the earth in multitude.

kjv@2Chronicles:1:10 @ Give me now wisdom and knowledge, that I may go out and come in before this people: for who can judge this thy people, that is so great?

kjv@2Chronicles:1:11 @ And God said to Solomon, Because this was in thine heart, and thou hast not asked riches, wealth, or honour, nor the life of thine enemies, neither yet hast asked long life; but hast asked wisdom and knowledge for thyself, that thou mayest judge my people, over whom I have made thee king:

kjv@2Chronicles:1:12 @ Wisdom and knowledge is granted unto thee; and I will give thee riches, and wealth, and honour, such as none of the kings have had that have been before thee, neither shall there any after thee have the like.

kjv@2Chronicles:1:13 @ Then Solomon came from his journey to the high place that was at Gibeon to Jerusalem, from before the tabernacle of the congregation, and reigned over Israel.

kjv@2Chronicles:1:14 @ And Solomon gathered chariots and horsemen: and he had a thousand and four hundred chariots, and twelve thousand horsemen, which he placed in the chariot cities, and with the king at Jerusalem.

kjv@2Chronicles:1:15 @ And the king made silver and gold at Jerusalem as plenteous as stones, and cedar trees made he as the sycomore trees that are in the vale for abundance.

kjv@2Chronicles:1:16 @ And Solomon had horses brought out of Egypt, and linen yarn: the king's merchants received the linen yarn at a price.

kjv@2Chronicles:1:17 @ And they fetched up, and brought forth out of Egypt a chariot for six hundred shekels of silver, and an horse for an hundred and fifty: and so brought they out horses for all the kings of the Hittites, and for the kings of Syria, by their means.

kjv@2Chronicles:2:1 @ And Solomon determined to build an house for the name of the LORD, and an house for his kingdom.

kjv@2Chronicles:2:2 @ And Solomon told out threescore and ten thousand men to bear burdens, and fourscore thousand to hew in the mountain, and three thousand and six hundred to oversee them.

kjv@2Chronicles:2:3 @ And Solomon sent to Huram the king of Tyre, saying, As thou didst deal with David my father, and didst send him cedars to build him an house to dwell therein, even so deal with me.

kjv@2Chronicles:2:4 @ Behold, I build an house to the name of the LORD my God, to dedicate it to him, and to burn before him sweet incense, and for the continual shewbread, and for the burnt offerings morning and evening, on the sabbaths, and on the new moons, and on the solemn feasts of the LORD our God. This is an ordinance for ever to Israel.

kjv@2Chronicles:2:5 @ And the house which I build is great: for great is our God above all gods.

kjv@2Chronicles:2:6 @ But who is able to build him an house, seeing the heaven and heaven of heavens cannot contain him? who am I then, that I should build him an house, save only to burn sacrifice before him?

kjv@2Chronicles:2:7 @ Send me now therefore a man cunning to work in gold, and in silver, and in brass, and in iron, and in purple, and crimson, and blue, and that can skill to grave with the cunning men that are with me in Judah and in Jerusalem, whom David my father did provide.

kjv@2Chronicles:2:8 @ Send me also cedar trees, fir trees, and algum trees, out of Lebanon: for I know that thy servants can skill to cut timber in Lebanon; and, behold, my servants shall be with thy servants,

kjv@2Chronicles:2:9 @ Even to prepare me timber in abundance: for the house which I am about to build shall be wonderful great.

kjv@2Chronicles:2:10 @ And, behold, I will give to thy servants, the hewers that cut timber, twenty thousand measures of beaten wheat, and twenty thousand measures of barley, and twenty thousand baths of wine, and twenty thousand baths of oil.

kjv@2Chronicles:2:11 @ Then Huram the king of Tyre answered in writing, which he sent to Solomon, Because the LORD hath loved his people, he hath made thee king over them.

kjv@2Chronicles:2:12 @ Huram said moreover, Blessed be the LORD God of Israel, that made heaven and earth, who hath given to David the king a wise son, endued with prudence and understanding, that might build an house for the LORD, and an house for his kingdom.

kjv@2Chronicles:2:13 @ And now I have sent a cunning man, endued with understanding, of Huram my father's,

kjv@2Chronicles:2:14 @ The son of a woman of the daughters of Dan, and his father was a man of Tyre, skilful to work in gold, and in silver, in brass, in iron, in stone, and in timber, in purple, in blue, and in fine linen, and in crimson; also to grave any manner of graving, and to find out every device which shall be put to him, with thy cunning men, and with the cunning men of my lord David thy father.

kjv@2Chronicles:2:15 @ Now therefore the wheat, and the barley, the oil, and the wine, which my lord hath spoken of, let him send unto his servants:

kjv@2Chronicles:2:16 @ And we will cut wood out of Lebanon, as much as thou shalt need: and we will bring it to thee in floats by sea to Joppa; and thou shalt carry it up to Jerusalem.

kjv@2Chronicles:2:17 @ And Solomon numbered all the strangers that were in the land of Israel, after the numbering wherewith David his father had numbered them; and they were found an hundred and fifty thousand and three thousand and six hundred.

kjv@2Chronicles:2:18 @ And he set threescore and ten thousand of them to be bearers of burdens, and fourscore thousand to be hewers in the mountain, and three thousand and six hundred overseers to set the people a work.

kjv@2Chronicles:3:1 @ Then Solomon began to build the house of the LORD at Jerusalem in mount Moriah, where the LORD appeared unto David his father, in the place that David had prepared in the threshingfloor of Ornan the Jebusite.

kjv@2Chronicles:3:2 @ And he began to build in the second day of the second month, in the fourth year of his reign.

kjv@2Chronicles:3:3 @ Now these are the things wherein Solomon was instructed for the building of the house of God. The length by cubits after the first measure was threescore cubits, and the breadth twenty cubits.

kjv@2Chronicles:3:4 @ And the porch that was in the front of the house, the length of it was according to the breadth of the house, twenty cubits, and the height was an hundred and twenty: and he overlaid it within with pure gold.

kjv@2Chronicles:3:5 @ And the greater house he cieled with fir tree, which he overlaid with fine gold, and set thereon palm trees and chains.

kjv@2Chronicles:3:6 @ And he garnished the house with precious stones for beauty: and the gold was gold of Parvaim.

kjv@2Chronicles:3:7 @ He overlaid also the house, the beams, the posts, and the walls thereof, and the doors thereof, with gold; and graved cherubims on the walls.

kjv@2Chronicles:3:8 @ And he made the most holy house, the length whereof was according to the breadth of the house, twenty cubits, and the breadth thereof twenty cubits: and he overlaid it with fine gold, amounting to six hundred talents.

kjv@2Chronicles:3:9 @ And the weight of the nails was fifty shekels of gold. And he overlaid the upper chambers with gold.

kjv@2Chronicles:3:10 @ And in the most holy house he made two cherubims of image work, and overlaid them with gold.

kjv@2Chronicles:3:11 @ And the wings of the cherubims were twenty cubits long: one wing of the one cherub was five cubits, reaching to the wall of the house: and the other wing was likewise five cubits, reaching to the wing of the other cherub.

kjv@2Chronicles:3:12 @ And one wing of the other cherub was five cubits, reaching to the wall of the house: and the other wing was five cubits also, joining to the wing of the other cherub.

kjv@2Chronicles:3:13 @ The wings of these cherubims spread themselves forth twenty cubits: and they stood on their feet, and their faces were inward.

kjv@2Chronicles:3:14 @ And he made the vail of blue, and purple, and crimson, and fine linen, and wrought cherubims thereon.

kjv@2Chronicles:3:15 @ Also he made before the house two pillars of thirty and five cubits high, and the chapiter that was on the top of each of them was five cubits.

kjv@2Chronicles:3:16 @ And he made chains, as in the oracle, and put them on the heads of the pillars; and made an hundred pomegranates, and put them on the chains.

kjv@2Chronicles:3:17 @ And he reared up the pillars before the temple, one on the right hand, and the other on the left; and called the name of that on the right hand Jachin, and the name of that on the left Boaz.

kjv@2Chronicles:4:1 @ Moreover he made an altar of brass, twenty cubits the length thereof, and twenty cubits the breadth thereof, and ten cubits the height thereof.

kjv@2Chronicles:4:2 @ Also he made a molten sea of ten cubits from brim to brim, round in compass, and five cubits the height thereof; and a line of thirty cubits did compass it round about.

kjv@2Chronicles:4:3 @ And under it was the similitude of oxen, which did compass it round about: ten in a cubit, compassing the sea round about. Two rows of oxen were cast, when it was cast.

kjv@2Chronicles:4:4 @ It stood upon twelve oxen, three looking toward the north, and three looking toward the west, and three looking toward the south, and three looking toward the east: and the sea was set above upon them, and all their hinder parts were inward.

kjv@2Chronicles:4:5 @ And the thickness of it was an handbreadth, and the brim of it like the work of the brim of a cup, with flowers of lilies; and it received and held three thousand baths.

kjv@2Chronicles:4:6 @ He made also ten lavers, and put five on the right hand, and five on the left, to wash in them: such things as they offered for the burnt offering they washed in them; but the sea was for the priests to wash in.

kjv@2Chronicles:4:7 @ And he made ten candlesticks of gold according to their form, and set them in the temple, five on the right hand, and five on the left.

kjv@2Chronicles:4:8 @ He made also ten tables, and placed them in the temple, five on the right side, and five on the left. And he made an hundred basons of gold.

kjv@2Chronicles:4:9 @ Furthermore he made the court of the priests, and the great court, and doors for the court, and overlaid the doors of them with brass.

kjv@2Chronicles:4:10 @ And he set the sea on the right side of the east end, over against the south.

kjv@2Chronicles:4:11 @ And Huram made the pots, and the shovels, and the basons. And Huram finished the work that he was to make for king Solomon for the house of God;

kjv@2Chronicles:4:12 @ To wit, the two pillars, and the pommels, and the chapiters which were on the top of the two pillars, and the two wreaths to cover the two pommels of the chapiters which were on the top of the pillars;

kjv@2Chronicles:4:14 @ He made also bases, and lavers made he upon the bases;

kjv@2Chronicles:4:15 @ One sea, and twelve oxen under it.

kjv@2Chronicles:4:16 @ The pots also, and the shovels, and the fleshhooks, and all their instruments, did Huram his father make to king Solomon for the house of the LORD of bright brass.

kjv@2Chronicles:4:17 @ In the plain of Jordan did the king cast them, in the clay ground between Succoth and Zeredathah.

kjv@2Chronicles:4:18 @ Thus Solomon made all these vessels in great abundance: for the weight of the brass could not be found out.

kjv@2Chronicles:4:19 @ And Solomon made all the vessels that were for the house of God, the golden altar also, and the tables whereon the shewbread was set;

kjv@2Chronicles:4:22 @ And the snuffers, and the basons, and the spoons, and the censers, of pure gold: and the entry of the house, the inner doors thereof for the most holy place, and the doors of the house of the temple, were of gold.

kjv@2Chronicles:5:1 @ Thus all the work that Solomon made for the house of the LORD was finished: and Solomon brought in all the things that David his father had dedicated; and the silver, and the gold, and all the instruments, put he among the treasures of the house of God.

kjv@2Chronicles:5:2 @ Then Solomon assembled the elders of Israel, and all the heads of the tribes, the chief of the fathers of the children of Israel, unto Jerusalem, to bring up the ark of the covenant of the LORD out of the city of David, which is Zion.

kjv@2Chronicles:5:3 @ Wherefore all the men of Israel assembled themselves unto the king in the feast which was in the seventh month.

kjv@2Chronicles:5:4 @ And all the elders of Israel came; and the Levites took up the ark.

kjv@2Chronicles:5:5 @ And they brought up the ark, and the tabernacle of the congregation, and all the holy vessels that were in the tabernacle, these did the priests and the Levites bring up.

kjv@2Chronicles:5:6 @ Also king Solomon, and all the congregation of Israel that were assembled unto him before the ark, sacrificed sheep and oxen, which could not be told nor numbered for multitude.

kjv@2Chronicles:5:7 @ And the priests brought in the ark of the covenant of the LORD unto his place, to the oracle of the house, into the most holy place, even under the wings of the cherubims:

kjv@2Chronicles:5:8 @ For the cherubims spread forth their wings over the place of the ark, and the cherubims covered the ark and the staves thereof above.

kjv@2Chronicles:5:9 @ And they drew out the staves of the ark, that the ends of the staves were seen from the ark before the oracle; but they were not seen without. And there it is unto this day.

kjv@2Chronicles:5:10 @ There was nothing in the ark save the two tables which Moses put therein at Horeb, when the LORD made a covenant with the children of Israel, when they came out of Egypt.

kjv@2Chronicles:5:11 @ And it came to pass, when the priests were come out of the holy place: (for all the priests that were present were sanctified, and did not then wait by course:

kjv@2Chronicles:5:12 @ Also the Levites which were the singers, all of them of Asaph, of Heman, of Jeduthun, with their sons and their brethren, being arrayed in white linen, having cymbals and psalteries and harps, stood at the east end of the altar, and with them an hundred and twenty priests sounding with trumpets:)

kjv@2Chronicles:5:13 @ It came even to pass, as the trumpeters and singers were as one, to make one sound to be heard in praising and thanking the LORD; and when they lifted up their voice with the trumpets and cymbals and instruments of musick, and praised the LORD, saying, For he is good; for his mercy endureth for ever: that then the house was filled with a cloud, even the house of the LORD;

kjv@2Chronicles:5:14 @ So that the priests could not stand to minister by reason of the cloud: for the glory of the LORD had filled the house of God.

kjv@2Chronicles:6:1 @ Then said Solomon, The LORD hath said that he would dwell in the thick darkness.

kjv@2Chronicles:6:2 @ But I have built an house of habitation for thee, and a place for thy dwelling for ever.

kjv@2Chronicles:6:3 @ And the king turned his face, and blessed the whole congregation of Israel: and all the congregation of Israel stood.

kjv@2Chronicles:6:4 @ And he said, Blessed be the LORD God of Israel, who hath with his hands fulfilled that which he spake with his mouth to my father David, saying,

kjv@2Chronicles:6:5 @ Since the day that I brought forth my people out of the land of Egypt I chose no city among all the tribes of Israel to build an house in, that my name might be there; neither chose I any man to be a ruler over my people Israel:

kjv@2Chronicles:6:6 @ But I have chosen Jerusalem, that my name might be there; and have chosen David to be over my people Israel.

kjv@2Chronicles:6:7 @ Now it was in the heart of David my father to build an house for the name of the LORD God of Israel.

kjv@2Chronicles:6:8 @ But the LORD said to David my father, Forasmuch as it was in thine heart to build an house for my name, thou didst well in that it was in thine heart:

kjv@2Chronicles:6:9 @ Notwithstanding thou shalt not build the house; but thy son which shall come forth out of thy loins, he shall build the house for my name.

kjv@2Chronicles:6:10 @ The LORD therefore hath performed his word that he hath spoken: for I am risen up in the room of David my father, and am set on the throne of Israel, as the LORD promised, and have built the house for the name of the LORD God of Israel.

kjv@2Chronicles:6:11 @ And in it have I put the ark, wherein is the covenant of the LORD, that he made with the children of Israel.

kjv@2Chronicles:6:12 @ And he stood before the altar of the LORD in the presence of all the congregation of Israel, and spread forth his hands:

kjv@2Chronicles:6:13 @ For Solomon had made a brasen scaffold, of five cubits long, and five cubits broad, and three cubits high, and had set it in the midst of the court: and upon it he stood, and kneeled down upon his knees before all the congregation of Israel, and spread forth his hands toward heaven,

kjv@2Chronicles:6:14 @ And said, O LORD God of Israel, there is no God like thee in the heaven, nor in the earth; which keepest covenant, and shewest mercy unto thy servants, that walk before thee with all their hearts:

kjv@2Chronicles:6:16 @ Now therefore, O LORD God of Israel, keep with thy servant David my father that which thou hast promised him, saying, There shall not fail thee a man in my sight to sit upon the throne of Israel; yet so that thy children take heed to their way to walk in my law, as thou hast walked before me.

kjv@2Chronicles:6:17 @ Now then, O LORD God of Israel, let thy word be verified, which thou hast spoken unto thy servant David.

kjv@2Chronicles:6:18 @ But will God in very deed dwell with men on the earth? behold, heaven and the heaven of heavens cannot contain thee; how much less this house which I have built!

kjv@2Chronicles:7:4 @ Then the king and all the people offered sacrifices before the LORD.

kjv@2Chronicles:7:5 @ And king Solomon offered a sacrifice of twenty and two thousand oxen, and an hundred and twenty thousand sheep: so the king and all the people dedicated the house of God.

kjv@2Chronicles:7:6 @ And the priests waited on their offices: the Levites also with instruments of musick of the LORD, which David the king had made to praise the LORD, because his mercy endureth for ever, when David praised by their ministry; and the priests sounded trumpets before them, and all Israel stood.

kjv@2Chronicles:7:7 @ Moreover Solomon hallowed the middle of the court that was before the house of the LORD: for there he offered burnt offerings, and the fat of the peace offerings, because the brasen altar which Solomon had made was not able to receive the burnt offerings, and the meat offerings, and the fat.

kjv@2Chronicles:7:8 @ Also at the same time Solomon kept the feast seven days, and all Israel with him, a very great congregation, from the entering in of Hamath unto the river of Egypt.

kjv@2Chronicles:7:9 @ And in the eighth day they made a solemn assembly: for they kept the dedication of the altar seven days, and the feast seven days.

kjv@2Chronicles:7:10 @ And on the three and twentieth day of the seventh month he sent the people away into their tents, glad and merry in heart for the goodness that the LORD had shewed unto David, and to Solomon, and to Israel his people.

kjv@2Chronicles:7:11 @ Thus Solomon finished the house of the LORD, and the king's house: and all that came into Solomon's heart to make in the house of the LORD, and in his own house, he prosperously effected.

kjv@2Chronicles:7:12 @ And the LORD appeared to Solomon by night, and said unto him, I have heard thy prayer, and have chosen this place to myself for an house of sacrifice.

kjv@2Chronicles:7:13 @ If I shut up heaven that there be no rain, or if I command the locusts to devour the land, or if I send pestilence among my people;

kjv@2Chronicles:7:19 @ But if ye turn away, and forsake my statutes and my commandments, which I have set before you, and shall go and serve other gods, and worship them;

kjv@2Chronicles:7:20 @ Then will I pluck them up by the roots out of my land which I have given them; and this house, which I have sanctified for my name, will I cast out of my sight, and will make it to be a proverb and a byword among all nations.

kjv@2Chronicles:7:21 @ And this house, which is high, shall be an astonishment to every one that passeth by it; so that he shall say, Why hath the LORD done thus unto this land, and unto this house?

kjv@2Chronicles:7:22 @ And it shall be answered, Because they forsook the LORD God of their fathers, which brought them forth out of the land of Egypt, and laid hold on other gods, and worshipped them, and served them: therefore hath he brought all this evil upon them.

kjv@2Chronicles:8:1 @ And it came to pass at the end of twenty years, wherein Solomon had built the house of the LORD, and his own house,

kjv@2Chronicles:8:2 @ That the cities which Huram had restored to Solomon, Solomon built them, and caused the children of Israel to dwell there.

kjv@2Chronicles:8:3 @ And Solomon went to Hamathzobah, and prevailed against it.

kjv@2Chronicles:8:4 @ And he built Tadmor in the wilderness, and all the store cities, which he built in Hamath.

kjv@2Chronicles:8:5 @ Also he built Bethhoron the upper, and Bethhoron the nether, fenced cities, with walls, gates, and bars;

kjv@2Chronicles:8:6 @ And Baalath, and all the store cities that Solomon had, and all the chariot cities, and the cities of the horsemen, and all that Solomon desired to build in Jerusalem, and in Lebanon, and throughout all the land of his dominion.

kjv@2Chronicles:8:7 @ As for all the people that were left of the Hittites, and the Amorites, and the Perizzites, and the Hivites, and the Jebusites, which were not of Israel,

kjv@2Chronicles:8:8 @ But of their children, who were left after them in the land, whom the children of Israel consumed not, them did Solomon make to pay tribute until this day.

kjv@2Chronicles:8:9 @ But of the children of Israel did Solomon make no servants for his work; but they were men of war, and chief of his captains, and captains of his chariots and horsemen.

kjv@2Chronicles:8:10 @ And these were the chief of king Solomon's officers, even two hundred and fifty, that bare rule over the people.

kjv@2Chronicles:8:11 @ And Solomon brought up the daughter of Pharaoh out of the city of David unto the house that he had built for her: for he said, My wife shall not dwell in the house of David king of Israel, because the places are holy, whereunto the ark of the LORD hath come.

kjv@2Chronicles:8:12 @ Then Solomon offered burnt offerings unto the LORD on the altar of the LORD, which he had built before the porch,

kjv@2Chronicles:8:13 @ Even after a certain rate every day, offering according to the commandment of Moses, on the sabbaths, and on the new moons, and on the solemn feasts, three times in the year, even in the feast of unleavened bread, and in the feast of weeks, and in the feast of tabernacles.

kjv@2Chronicles:8:14 @ And he appointed, according to the order of David his father, the courses of the priests to their service, and the Levites to their charges, to praise and minister before the priests, as the duty of every day required: the porters also by their courses at every gate: for so had David the man of God commanded.

kjv@2Chronicles:8:15 @ And they departed not from the commandment of the king unto the priests and Levites concerning any matter, or concerning the treasures.

kjv@2Chronicles:8:16 @ Now all the work of Solomon was prepared unto the day of the foundation of the house of the LORD, and until it was finished. So the house of the LORD was perfected.

kjv@2Chronicles:8:17 @ Then went Solomon to Eziongeber, and to Eloth, at the sea side in the land of Edom.

kjv@2Chronicles:8:18 @ And Huram sent him by the hands of his servants ships, and servants that had knowledge of the sea; and they went with the servants of Solomon to Ophir, and took thence four hundred and fifty talents of gold, and brought them to king Solomon.

kjv@2Chronicles:9:1 @ And when the queen of Sheba heard of the fame of Solomon, she came to prove Solomon with hard questions at Jerusalem, with a very great company, and camels that bare spices, and gold in abundance, and precious stones: and when she was come to Solomon, she communed with him of all that was in her heart.

kjv@2Chronicles:9:2 @ And Solomon told her all her questions: and there was nothing hid from Solomon which he told her not.

kjv@2Chronicles:9:3 @ And when the queen of Sheba had seen the wisdom of Solomon, and the house that he had built,

kjv@2Chronicles:9:4 @ And the meat of his table, and the sitting of his servants, and the attendance of his ministers, and their apparel; his cupbearers also, and their apparel; and his ascent by which he went up into the house of the LORD; there was no more spirit in her.

kjv@2Chronicles:9:5 @ And she said to the king, It was a true report which I heard in mine own land of thine acts, and of thy wisdom:

kjv@2Chronicles:9:6 @ Howbeit I believed not their words, until I came, and mine eyes had seen it: and, behold, the one half of the greatness of thy wisdom was not told me: for thou exceedest the fame that I heard.

kjv@2Chronicles:9:7 @ Happy are thy men, and happy are these thy servants, which stand continually before thee, and hear thy wisdom.

kjv@2Chronicles:9:8 @ Blessed be the LORD thy God, which delighted in thee to set thee on his throne, to be king for the LORD thy God: because thy God loved Israel, to establish them for ever, therefore made he thee king over them, to do judgment and justice.

kjv@2Chronicles:9:9 @ And she gave the king an hundred and twenty talents of gold, and of spices great abundance, and precious stones: neither was there any such spice as the queen of Sheba gave king Solomon.

kjv@2Chronicles:9:10 @ And the servants also of Huram, and the servants of Solomon, which brought gold from Ophir, brought algum trees and precious stones.

kjv@2Chronicles:9:11 @ And the king made of the algum trees terraces to the house of the LORD, and to the king's palace, and harps and psalteries for singers: and there were none such seen before in the land of Judah.

kjv@2Chronicles:9:12 @ And king Solomon gave to the queen of Sheba all her desire, whatsoever she asked, beside that which she had brought unto the king. So she turned, and went away to her own land, she and her servants.

kjv@2Chronicles:9:13 @ Now the weight of gold that came to Solomon in one year was six hundred and threescore and six talents of gold;

kjv@2Chronicles:9:14 @ Beside that which chapmen and merchants brought. And all the kings of Arabia and governors of the country brought gold and silver to Solomon.

kjv@2Chronicles:9:15 @ And king Solomon made two hundred targets of beaten gold: six hundred shekels of beaten gold went to one target.

kjv@2Chronicles:9:16 @ And three hundred shields made he of beaten gold: three hundred shekels of gold went to one shield. And the king put them in the house of the forest of Lebanon.

kjv@2Chronicles:9:17 @ Moreover the king made a great throne of ivory, and overlaid it with pure gold.

kjv@2Chronicles:9:18 @ And there were six steps to the throne, with a footstool of gold, which were fastened to the throne, and stays on each side of the sitting place, and two lions standing by the stays:

kjv@2Chronicles:9:19 @ And twelve lions stood there on the one side and on the other upon the six steps. There was not the like made in any kingdom.

kjv@2Chronicles:9:20 @ And all the drinking vessels of king Solomon were of gold, and all the vessels of the house of the forest of Lebanon were of pure gold: none were of silver; it was not any thing accounted of in the days of Solomon.

kjv@2Chronicles:9:21 @ For the king's ships went to Tarshish with the servants of Huram: every three years once came the ships of Tarshish bringing gold, and silver, ivory, and apes, and peacocks.

kjv@2Chronicles:9:22 @ And king Solomon passed all the kings of the earth in riches and wisdom.

kjv@2Chronicles:9:23 @ And all the kings of the earth sought the presence of Solomon, to hear his wisdom, that God had put in his heart.

kjv@2Chronicles:9:24 @ And they brought every man his present, vessels of silver, and vessels of gold, and raiment, harness, and spices, horses, and mules, a rate year by year.

kjv@2Chronicles:9:25 @ And Solomon had four thousand stalls for horses and chariots, and twelve thousand horsemen; whom he bestowed in the chariot cities, and with the king at Jerusalem.

kjv@2Chronicles:9:26 @ And he reigned over all the kings from the river even unto the land of the Philistines, and to the border of Egypt.

kjv@2Chronicles:9:27 @ And the king made silver in Jerusalem as stones, and cedar trees made he as the sycomore trees that are in the low plains in abundance.

kjv@2Chronicles:9:28 @ And they brought unto Solomon horses out of Egypt, and out of all lands.

kjv@2Chronicles:9:29 @ Now the rest of the acts of Solomon, first and last, are they not written in the book of Nathan the prophet, and in the prophecy of Ahijah the Shilonite, and in the visions of Iddo the seer against Jeroboam the son of Nebat?

kjv@2Chronicles:9:31 @ And Solomon slept with his fathers, and he was buried in the city of David his father: and Rehoboam his son reigned in his stead.

kjv@2Chronicles:10:1 @ And Rehoboam went to Shechem: for to Shechem were all Israel come to make him king.

kjv@2Chronicles:10:2 @ And it came to pass, when Jeroboam the son of Nebat, who was in Egypt, whither he had fled from the presence of Solomon the king, heard it, that Jeroboam returned out of Egypt.

kjv@2Chronicles:10:3 @ And they sent and called him. So Jeroboam and all Israel came and spake to Rehoboam, saying,

kjv@2Chronicles:10:4 @ Thy father made our yoke grievous: now therefore ease thou somewhat the grievous servitude of thy father, and his heavy yoke that he put upon us, and we will serve thee.

kjv@2Chronicles:10:5 @ And he said unto them, Come again unto me after three days. And the people departed.

kjv@2Chronicles:10:6 @ And king Rehoboam took counsel with the old men that had stood before Solomon his father while he yet lived, saying, What counsel give ye me to return answer to this people?

kjv@2Chronicles:10:7 @ And they spake unto him, saying, If thou be kind to this people, and please them, and speak good words to them, they will be thy servants for ever.

kjv@2Chronicles:10:8 @ But he forsook the counsel which the old men gave him, and took counsel with the young men that were brought up with him, that stood before him.

kjv@2Chronicles:10:9 @ And he said unto them, What advice give ye that we may return answer to this people, which have spoken to me, saying, Ease somewhat the yoke that thy father did put upon us?

kjv@2Chronicles:10:10 @ And the young men that were brought up with him spake unto him, saying, Thus shalt thou answer the people that spake unto thee, saying, Thy father made our yoke heavy, but make thou it somewhat lighter for us; thus shalt thou say unto them, My little finger shall be thicker than my father's loins.

kjv@2Chronicles:10:11 @ For whereas my father put a heavy yoke upon you, I will put more to your yoke: my father chastised you with whips, but I will chastise you with scorpions.

kjv@2Chronicles:10:12 @ So Jeroboam and all the people came to Rehoboam on the third day, as the king bade, saying, Come again to me on the third day.

kjv@2Chronicles:10:13 @ And the king answered them roughly; and king Rehoboam forsook the counsel of the old men,

kjv@2Chronicles:10:14 @ And answered them after the advice of the young men, saying, My father made your yoke heavy, but I will add thereto: my father chastised you with whips, but I will chastise you with scorpions.

kjv@2Chronicles:10:15 @ So the king hearkened not unto the people: for the cause was of God, that the LORD might perform his word, which he spake by the hand of Ahijah the Shilonite to Jeroboam the son of Nebat.

kjv@2Chronicles:10:16 @ And when all Israel saw that the king would not hearken unto them, the people answered the king, saying, What portion have we in David? and we have none inheritance in the son of Jesse: every man to your tents, O Israel: and now, David, see to thine own house. So all Israel went to their tents.

kjv@2Chronicles:10:17 @ But as for the children of Israel that dwelt in the cities of Judah, Rehoboam reigned over them.

kjv@2Chronicles:10:18 @ Then king Rehoboam sent Hadoram that was over the tribute; and the children of Israel stoned him with stones, that he died. But king Rehoboam made speed to get him up to his chariot, to flee to Jerusalem.

kjv@2Chronicles:10:19 @ And Israel rebelled against the house of David unto this day.

kjv@2Chronicles:11:1 @ And when Rehoboam was come to Jerusalem, he gathered of the house of Judah and Benjamin an hundred and fourscore thousand chosen men, which were warriors, to fight against Israel, that he might bring the kingdom again to Rehoboam.

kjv@2Chronicles:11:12 @ And in every several city he put shields and spears, and made them exceeding strong, having Judah and Benjamin on his side.

kjv@2Chronicles:11:13 @ And the priests and the Levites that were in all Israel resorted to him out of all their coasts.

kjv@2Chronicles:11:14 @ For the Levites left their suburbs and their possession, and came to Judah and Jerusalem: for Jeroboam and his sons had cast them off from executing the priest's office unto the LORD:

kjv@2Chronicles:11:15 @ And he ordained him priests for the high places, and for the devils, and for the calves which he had made.

kjv@2Chronicles:11:16 @ And after them out of all the tribes of Israel such as set their hearts to seek the LORD God of Israel came to Jerusalem, to sacrifice unto the LORD God of their fathers.

kjv@2Chronicles:11:17 @ So they strengthened the kingdom of Judah, and made Rehoboam the son of Solomon strong, three years: for three years they walked in the way of David and Solomon.

kjv@2Chronicles:11:18 @ And Rehoboam took him Mahalath the daughter of Jerimoth the son of David to wife, and Abihail the daughter of Eliab the son of Jesse;

kjv@2Chronicles:11:19 @ Which bare him children; Jeush, and Shamariah, and Zaham.

kjv@2Chronicles:11:20 @ And after her he took Maachah the daughter of Absalom; which bare him Abijah, and Attai, and Ziza, and Shelomith.

kjv@2Chronicles:11:21 @ And Rehoboam loved Maachah the daughter of Absalom above all his wives and his concubines: (for he took eighteen wives, and threescore concubines; and begat twenty and eight sons, and threescore daughters.)

kjv@2Chronicles:11:22 @ And Rehoboam made Abijah the son of Maachah the chief, to be ruler among his brethren: for he thought to make him king.

kjv@2Chronicles:11:23 @ And he dealt wisely, and dispersed of all his children throughout all the countries of Judah and Benjamin, unto every fenced city: and he gave them victual in abundance. And he desired many wives.

kjv@2Chronicles:12:1 @ And it came to pass, when Rehoboam had established the kingdom, and had strengthened himself, he forsook the law of the LORD, and all Israel with him.

kjv@2Chronicles:12:2 @ And it came to pass, that in the fifth year of king Rehoboam Shishak king of Egypt came up against Jerusalem, because they had transgressed against the LORD,

kjv@2Chronicles:12:3 @ With twelve hundred chariots, and threescore thousand horsemen: and the people were without number that came with him out of Egypt; the Lubims, the Sukkiims, and the Ethiopians.

kjv@2Chronicles:12:4 @ And he took the fenced cities which pertained to Judah, and came to Jerusalem.

kjv@2Chronicles:12:5 @ Then came Shemaiah the prophet to Rehoboam, and to the princes of Judah, that were gathered together to Jerusalem because of Shishak, and said unto them, Thus saith the LORD, Ye have forsaken me, and therefore have I also left you in the hand of Shishak.

kjv@2Chronicles:12:6 @ Whereupon the princes of Israel and the king humbled themselves; and they said, The LORD is righteous.

kjv@2Chronicles:12:7 @ And when the LORD saw that they humbled themselves, the word of the LORD came to Shemaiah, saying, They have humbled themselves; therefore I will not destroy them, but I will grant them some deliverance; and my wrath shall not be poured out upon Jerusalem by the hand of Shishak.

kjv@2Chronicles:12:8 @ Nevertheless they shall be his servants; that they may know my service, and the service of the kingdoms of the countries.

kjv@2Chronicles:12:9 @ So Shishak king of Egypt came up against Jerusalem, and took away the treasures of the house of the LORD, and the treasures of the king's house; he took all: he carried away also the shields of gold which Solomon had made.

kjv@2Chronicles:12:10 @ Instead of which king Rehoboam made shields of brass, and committed them to the hands of the chief of the guard, that kept the entrance of the king's house.

kjv@2Chronicles:12:11 @ And when the king entered into the house of the LORD, the guard came and fetched them, and brought them again into the guard chamber.

kjv@2Chronicles:12:12 @ And when he humbled himself, the wrath of the LORD turned from him, that he would not destroy him altogether: and also in Judah things went well.

kjv@2Chronicles:12:13 @ So king Rehoboam strengthened himself in Jerusalem, and reigned: for Rehoboam was one and forty years old when he began to reign, and he reigned seventeen years in Jerusalem, the city which the LORD had chosen out of all the tribes of Israel, to put his name there. And his mother's name was Naamah an Ammonitess.

kjv@2Chronicles:12:14 @ And he did evil, because he prepared not his heart to seek the LORD.

kjv@2Chronicles:12:15 @ Now the acts of Rehoboam, first and last, are they not written in the book of Shemaiah the prophet, and of Iddo the seer concerning genealogies? And there were wars between Rehoboam and Jeroboam continually.

kjv@2Chronicles:12:16 @ And Rehoboam slept with his fathers, and was buried in the city of David: and Abijah his son reigned in his stead.

kjv@2Chronicles:13:1 @ Now in the eighteenth year of king Jeroboam began Abijah to reign over Judah.

kjv@2Chronicles:13:2 @ He reigned three years in Jerusalem. His mother's name also was Michaiah the daughter of Uriel of Gibeah. And there was war between Abijah and Jeroboam.

kjv@2Chronicles:13:3 @ And Abijah set the battle in array with an army of valiant men of war, even four hundred thousand chosen men: Jeroboam also set the battle in array against him with eight hundred thousand chosen men, being mighty men of valour.

kjv@2Chronicles:13:4 @ And Abijah stood up upon mount Zemaraim, which is in mount Ephraim, and said, Hear me, thou Jeroboam, and all Israel;

kjv@2Chronicles:13:5 @ Ought ye not to know that the LORD God of Israel gave the kingdom over Israel to David for ever, even to him and to his sons by a covenant of salt?

kjv@2Chronicles:13:6 @ Yet Jeroboam the son of Nebat, the servant of Solomon the son of David, is risen up, and hath rebelled against his lord.

kjv@2Chronicles:13:7 @ And there are gathered unto him vain men, the children of Belial, and have strengthened themselves against Rehoboam the son of Solomon, when Rehoboam was young and tenderhearted, and could not withstand them.

kjv@2Chronicles:13:8 @ And now ye think to withstand the kingdom of the LORD in the hand of the sons of David; and ye be a great multitude, and there are with you golden calves, which Jeroboam made you for gods.

kjv@2Chronicles:13:9 @ Have ye not cast out the priests of the LORD, the sons of Aaron, and the Levites, and have made you priests after the manner of the nations of other lands? so that whosoever cometh to consecrate himself with a young bullock and seven rams, the same may be a priest of them that are no gods.

kjv@2Chronicles:13:10 @ But as for us, the LORD is our God, and we have not forsaken him; and the priests, which minister unto the LORD, are the sons of Aaron, and the Levites wait upon their business:

kjv@2Chronicles:13:11 @ And they burn unto the LORD every morning and every evening burnt sacrifices and sweet incense: the shewbread also set they in order upon the pure table; and the candlestick of gold with the lamps thereof, to burn every evening: for we keep the charge of the LORD our God; but ye have forsaken him.

kjv@2Chronicles:13:12 @ And, behold, God himself is with us for our captain, and his priests with sounding trumpets to cry alarm against you. O children of Israel, fight ye not against the LORD God of your fathers; for ye shall not prosper.

kjv@2Chronicles:13:13 @ But Jeroboam caused an ambushment to come about behind them: so they were before Judah, and the ambushment was behind them.

kjv@2Chronicles:13:14 @ And when Judah looked back, behold, the battle was before and behind: and they cried unto the LORD, and the priests sounded with the trumpets.

kjv@2Chronicles:13:15 @ Then the men of Judah gave a shout: and as the men of Judah shouted, it came to pass, that God smote Jeroboam and all Israel before Abijah and Judah.

kjv@2Chronicles:13:16 @ And the children of Israel fled before Judah: and God delivered them into their hand.

kjv@2Chronicles:13:17 @ And Abijah and his people slew them with a great slaughter: so there fell down slain of Israel five hundred thousand chosen men.

kjv@2Chronicles:13:18 @ Thus the children of Israel were brought under at that time, and the children of Judah prevailed, because they relied upon the LORD God of their fathers.

kjv@2Chronicles:13:19 @ And Abijah pursued after Jeroboam, and took cities from him, Bethel with the towns thereof, and Jeshanah with the towns thereof, and Ephrain with the towns thereof.

kjv@2Chronicles:13:20 @ Neither did Jeroboam recover strength again in the days of Abijah: and the LORD struck him, and he died.

kjv@2Chronicles:13:21 @ But Abijah waxed mighty, and married fourteen wives, and begat twenty and two sons, and sixteen daughters.

kjv@2Chronicles:13:22 @ And the rest of the acts of Abijah, and his ways, and his sayings, are written in the story of the prophet Iddo.

kjv@2Chronicles:14:1 @ So Abijah slept with his fathers, and they buried him in the city of David: and Asa his son reigned in his stead. In his days the land was quiet ten years.

kjv@2Chronicles:14:2 @ And Asa did that which was good and right in the eyes of the LORD his God:

kjv@2Chronicles:14:3 @ For he took away the altars of the strange gods, and the high places, and brake down the images, and cut down the groves:

kjv@2Chronicles:14:4 @ And commanded Judah to seek the LORD God of their fathers, and to do the law and the commandment.

kjv@2Chronicles:14:5 @ Also he took away out of all the cities of Judah the high places and the images: and the kingdom was quiet before him.

kjv@2Chronicles:14:6 @ And he built fenced cities in Judah: for the land had rest, and he had no war in those years; because the LORD had given him rest.

kjv@2Chronicles:14:7 @ Therefore he said unto Judah, Let us build these cities, and make about them walls, and towers, gates, and bars, while the land is yet before us; because we have sought the LORD our God, we have sought him, and he hath given us rest on every side. So they built and prospered.

kjv@2Chronicles:14:8 @ And Asa had an army of men that bare targets and spears, out of Judah three hundred thousand; and out of Benjamin, that bare shields and drew bows, two hundred and fourscore thousand: all these were mighty men of valour.

kjv@2Chronicles:14:9 @ And there came out against them Zerah the Ethiopian with an host of a thousand thousand, and three hundred chariots; and came unto Mareshah.

kjv@2Chronicles:14:10 @ Then Asa went out against him, and they set the battle in array in the valley of Zephathah at Mareshah.

kjv@2Chronicles:14:11 @ And Asa cried unto the LORD his God, and said, LORD, it is nothing with thee to help, whether with many, or with them that have no power: help us, O LORD our God; for we rest on thee, and in thy name we go against this multitude. O LORD, thou art our God; let not man prevail against thee.

kjv@2Chronicles:14:12 @ So the LORD smote the Ethiopians before Asa, and before Judah; and the Ethiopians fled.

kjv@2Chronicles:14:13 @ And Asa and the people that were with him pursued them unto Gerar: and the Ethiopians were overthrown, that they could not recover themselves; for they were destroyed before the LORD, and before his host; and they carried away very much spoil.

kjv@2Chronicles:14:14 @ And they smote all the cities round about Gerar; for the fear of the LORD came upon them: and they spoiled all the cities; for there was exceeding much spoil in them.

kjv@2Chronicles:14:15 @ They smote also the tents of cattle, and carried away sheep and camels in abundance, and returned to Jerusalem.

kjv@2Chronicles:15:1 @ And the Spirit of God came upon Azariah the son of Oded:

kjv@2Chronicles:15:2 @ And he went out to meet Asa, and said unto him, Hear ye me, Asa, and all Judah and Benjamin; The LORD is with you, while ye be with him; and if ye seek him, he will be found of you; but if ye forsake him, he will forsake you.

kjv@2Chronicles:15:3 @ Now for a long season Israel hath been without the true God, and without a teaching priest, and without law.

kjv@2Chronicles:15:4 @ But when they in their trouble did turn unto the LORD God of Israel, and sought him, he was found of them.

kjv@2Chronicles:15:5 @ And in those times there was no peace to him that went out, nor to him that came in, but great vexations were upon all the inhabitants of the countries.

kjv@2Chronicles:15:6 @ And nation was destroyed of nation, and city of city: for God did vex them with all adversity.

kjv@2Chronicles:15:7 @ Be ye strong therefore, and let not your hands be weak: for your work shall be rewarded.

kjv@2Chronicles:15:8 @ And when Asa heard these words, and the prophecy of Oded the prophet, he took courage, and put away the abominable idols out of all the land of Judah and Benjamin, and out of the cities which he had taken from mount Ephraim, and renewed the altar of the LORD, that was before the porch of the LORD.

kjv@2Chronicles:15:9 @ And he gathered all Judah and Benjamin, and the strangers with them out of Ephraim and Manasseh, and out of Simeon: for they fell to him out of Israel in abundance, when they saw that the LORD his God was with him.

kjv@2Chronicles:15:10 @ So they gathered themselves together at Jerusalem in the third month, in the fifteenth year of the reign of Asa.

kjv@2Chronicles:15:11 @ And they offered unto the LORD the same time, of the spoil which they had brought, seven hundred oxen and seven thousand sheep.

kjv@2Chronicles:15:12 @ And they entered into a covenant to seek the LORD God of their fathers with all their heart and with all their soul;

kjv@2Chronicles:15:13 @ That whosoever would not seek the LORD God of Israel should be put to death, whether small or great, whether man or woman.

kjv@2Chronicles:15:14 @ And they sware unto the LORD with a loud voice, and with shouting, and with trumpets, and with cornets.

kjv@2Chronicles:15:15 @ And all Judah rejoiced at the oath: for they had sworn with all their heart, and sought him with their whole desire; and he was found of them: and the LORD gave them rest round about.

kjv@2Chronicles:15:16 @ And also concerning Maachah the mother of Asa the king, he removed her from being queen, because she had made an idol in a grove: and Asa cut down her idol, and stamped it, and burnt it at the brook Kidron.

kjv@2Chronicles:15:17 @ But the high places were not taken away out of Israel: nevertheless the heart of Asa was perfect all his days.

kjv@2Chronicles:15:18 @ And he brought into the house of God the things that his father had dedicated, and that he himself had dedicated, silver, and gold, and vessels.

kjv@2Chronicles:15:19 @ And there was no more war unto the five and thirtieth year of the reign of Asa.

kjv@2Chronicles:16:1 @ In the six and thirtieth year of the reign of Asa Baasha king of Israel came up against Judah, and built Ramah, to the intent that he might let none go out or come in to Asa king of Judah.

kjv@2Chronicles:16:2 @ Then Asa brought out silver and gold out of the treasures of the house of the LORD and of the king's house, and sent to Benhadad king of Syria, that dwelt at Damascus, saying,

kjv@2Chronicles:16:3 @ There is a league between me and thee, as there was between my father and thy father: behold, I have sent thee silver and gold; go, break thy league with Baasha king of Israel, that he may depart from me.

kjv@2Chronicles:16:4 @ And Benhadad hearkened unto king Asa, and sent the captains of his armies against the cities of Israel; and they smote Ijon, and Dan, and Abelmaim, and all the store cities of Naphtali.

kjv@2Chronicles:16:5 @ And it came to pass, when Baasha heard it, that he left off building of Ramah, and let his work cease.

kjv@2Chronicles:16:6 @ Then Asa the king took all Judah; and they carried away the stones of Ramah, and the timber thereof, wherewith Baasha was building; and he built therewith Geba and Mizpah.

kjv@2Chronicles:16:7 @ And at that time Hanani the seer came to Asa king of Judah, and said unto him, Because thou hast relied on the king of Syria, and not relied on the LORD thy God, therefore is the host of the king of Syria escaped out of thine hand.

kjv@2Chronicles:16:8 @ Were not the Ethiopians and the Lubims a huge host, with very many chariots and horsemen? yet, because thou didst rely on the LORD, he delivered them into thine hand.

kjv@2Chronicles:16:9 @ For the eyes of the LORD run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to shew himself strong in the behalf of them whose heart is perfect toward him. Herein thou hast done foolishly: therefore from henceforth thou shalt have wars.

kjv@2Chronicles:16:10 @ Then Asa was wroth with the seer, and put him in a prison house; for he was in a rage with him because of this thing. And Asa oppressed some of the people the same time.

kjv@2Chronicles:16:11 @ And, behold, the acts of Asa, first and last, lo, they are written in the book of the kings of Judah and Israel.

kjv@2Chronicles:16:12 @ And Asa in the thirty and ninth year of his reign was diseased in his feet, until his disease was exceeding great: yet in his disease he sought not to the LORD, but to the physicians.

kjv@2Chronicles:16:13 @ And Asa slept with his fathers, and died in the one and fortieth year of his reign.

kjv@2Chronicles:16:14 @ And they buried him in his own sepulchres, which he had made for himself in the city of David, and laid him in the bed which was filled with sweet odours and divers kinds of spices prepared by the apothecaries' art: and they made a very great burning for him.

kjv@2Chronicles:17:1 @ And Jehoshaphat his son reigned in his stead, and strengthened himself against Israel.

kjv@2Chronicles:17:2 @ And he placed forces in all the fenced cities of Judah, and set garrisons in the land of Judah, and in the cities of Ephraim, which Asa his father had taken.

kjv@2Chronicles:17:3 @ And the LORD was with Jehoshaphat, because he walked in the first ways of his father David, and sought not unto Baalim;

kjv@2Chronicles:17:4 @ But sought to the LORD God of his father, and walked in his commandments, and not after the doings of Israel.

kjv@2Chronicles:17:5 @ Therefore the LORD stablished the kingdom in his hand; and all Judah brought to Jehoshaphat presents; and he had riches and honour in abundance.

kjv@2Chronicles:17:6 @ And his heart was lifted up in the ways of the LORD: moreover he took away the high places and groves out of Judah.

kjv@2Chronicles:17:7 @ Also in the third year of his reign he sent to his princes, even to Benhail, and to Obadiah, and to Zechariah, and to Nethaneel, and to Michaiah, to teach in the cities of Judah.

kjv@2Chronicles:17:8 @ And with them he sent Levites, even Shemaiah, and Nethaniah, and Zebadiah, and Asahel, and Shemiramoth, and Jehonathan, and Adonijah, and Tobijah, and Tobadonijah, Levites; and with them Elishama and Jehoram, priests.

kjv@2Chronicles:17:9 @ And they taught in Judah, and had the book of the law of the LORD with them, and went about throughout all the cities of Judah, and taught the people.

kjv@2Chronicles:17:10 @ And the fear of the LORD fell upon all the kingdoms of the lands that were round about Judah, so that they made no war against Jehoshaphat.

kjv@2Chronicles:17:11 @ Also some of the Philistines brought Jehoshaphat presents, and tribute silver; and the Arabians brought him flocks, seven thousand and seven hundred rams, and seven thousand and seven hundred he goats.

kjv@2Chronicles:17:12 @ And Jehoshaphat waxed great exceedingly; and he built in Judah castles, and cities of store.

kjv@2Chronicles:17:13 @ And he had much business in the cities of Judah: and the men of war, mighty men of valour, were in Jerusalem.

kjv@2Chronicles:17:14 @ And these are the numbers of them according to the house of their fathers: Of Judah, the captains of thousands; Adnah the chief, and with him mighty men of valour three hundred thousand.

kjv@2Chronicles:17:15 @ And next to him was Jehohanan the captain, and with him two hundred and fourscore thousand.

kjv@2Chronicles:17:16 @ And next him was Amasiah the son of Zichri, who willingly offered himself unto the LORD; and with him two hundred thousand mighty men of valour.

kjv@2Chronicles:17:17 @ And of Benjamin; Eliada a mighty man of valour, and with him armed men with bow and shield two hundred thousand.

kjv@2Chronicles:17:18 @ And next him was Jehozabad, and with him an hundred and fourscore thousand ready prepared for the war.

kjv@2Chronicles:17:19 @ These waited on the king, beside those whom the king put in the fenced cities throughout all Judah.

kjv@2Chronicles:18:1 @ Now Jehoshaphat had riches and honour in abundance, and joined affinity with Ahab.

kjv@2Chronicles:18:2 @ And after certain years he went down to Ahab to Samaria. And Ahab killed sheep and oxen for him in abundance, and for the people that he had with him, and persuaded him to go up with him to Ramothgilead.

kjv@2Chronicles:18:3 @ And Ahab king of Israel said unto Jehoshaphat king of Judah, Wilt thou go with me to Ramothgilead? And he answered him, I am as thou art, and my people as thy people; and we will be with thee in the war.

kjv@2Chronicles:18:4 @ And Jehoshaphat said unto the king of Israel, Enquire, I pray thee, at the word of the LORD to day.

kjv@2Chronicles:18:5 @ Therefore the king of Israel gathered together of prophets four hundred men, and said unto them, Shall we go to Ramothgilead to battle, or shall I forbear? And they said, Go up; for God will deliver it into the king's hand.

kjv@2Chronicles:18:6 @ But Jehoshaphat said, Is there not here a prophet of the LORD besides, that we might enquire of him?

kjv@2Chronicles:18:7 @ And the king of Israel said unto Jehoshaphat, There is yet one man, by whom we may enquire of the LORD: but I hate him; for he never prophesied good unto me, but always evil: the same is Micaiah the son of Imla. And Jehoshaphat said, Let not the king say so.

kjv@2Chronicles:18:8 @ And the king of Israel called for one of his officers, and said, Fetch quickly Micaiah the son of Imla.

kjv@2Chronicles:18:9 @ And the king of Israel and Jehoshaphat king of Judah sat either of them on his throne, clothed in their robes, and they sat in a void place at the entering in of the gate of Samaria; and all the prophets prophesied before them.

kjv@2Chronicles:18:10 @ And Zedekiah the son of Chenaanah had made him horns of iron, and said, Thus saith the LORD, With these thou shalt push Syria until they be consumed.

kjv@2Chronicles:18:11 @ And all the prophets prophesied so, saying, Go up to Ramothgilead, and prosper: for the LORD shall deliver it into the hand of the king.

kjv@2Chronicles:18:12 @ And the messenger that went to call Micaiah spake to him, saying, Behold, the words of the prophets declare good to the king with one assent; let thy word therefore, I pray thee, be like one of theirs, and speak thou good.

kjv@2Chronicles:18:13 @ And Micaiah said, As the LORD liveth, even what my God saith, that will I speak.

kjv@2Chronicles:18:14 @ And when he was come to the king, the king said unto him, Micaiah, shall we go to Ramothgilead to battle, or shall I forbear? And he said, Go ye up, and prosper, and they shall be delivered into your hand.

kjv@2Chronicles:18:15 @ And the king said to him, How many times shall I adjure thee that thou say nothing but the truth to me in the name of the LORD?

kjv@2Chronicles:18:16 @ Then he said, I did see all Israel scattered upon the mountains, as sheep that have no shepherd: and the LORD said, These have no master; let them return therefore every man to his house in peace.

kjv@2Chronicles:18:17 @ And the king of Israel said to Jehoshaphat, Did I not tell thee that he would not prophesy good unto me, but evil?

kjv@2Chronicles:18:18 @ Again he said, Therefore hear the word of the LORD; I saw the LORD sitting upon his throne, and all the host of heaven standing on his right hand and on his left.

kjv@2Chronicles:18:19 @ And the LORD said, Who shall entice Ahab king of Israel, that he may go up and fall at Ramothgilead? And one spake saying after this manner, and another saying after that manner.

kjv@2Chronicles:18:20 @ Then there came out a spirit, and stood before the LORD, and said, I will entice him. And the LORD said unto him, Wherewith?

kjv@2Chronicles:18:21 @ And he said, I will go out, and be a lying spirit in the mouth of all his prophets. And the LORD said, Thou shalt entice him, and thou shalt also prevail: go out, and do even so.

kjv@2Chronicles:18:22 @ Now therefore, behold, the LORD hath put a lying spirit in the mouth of these thy prophets, and the LORD hath spoken evil against thee.

kjv@2Chronicles:18:23 @ Then Zedekiah the son of Chenaanah came near, and smote Micaiah upon the cheek, and said, Which way went the Spirit of the LORD from me to speak unto thee?

kjv@2Chronicles:18:24 @ And Micaiah said, Behold, thou shalt see on that day when thou shalt go into an inner chamber to hide thyself.

kjv@2Chronicles:18:25 @ Then the king of Israel said, Take ye Micaiah, and carry him back to Amon the governor of the city, and to Joash the king's son;

kjv@2Chronicles:18:26 @ And say, Thus saith the king, Put this fellow in the prison, and feed him with bread of affliction and with water of affliction, until I return in peace.

kjv@2Chronicles:18:27 @ And Micaiah said, If thou certainly return in peace, then hath not the LORD spoken by me. And he said, Hearken, all ye people.

kjv@2Chronicles:18:28 @ So the king of Israel and Jehoshaphat the king of Judah went up to Ramothgilead.

kjv@2Chronicles:18:29 @ And the king of Israel said unto Jehoshaphat, I will disguise myself, and will go to the battle; but put thou on thy robes. So the king of Israel disguised himself; and they went to the battle.

kjv@2Chronicles:18:30 @ Now the king of Syria had commanded the captains of the chariots that were with him, saying, Fight ye not with small or great, save only with the king of Israel.

kjv@2Chronicles:18:31 @ And it came to pass, when the captains of the chariots saw Jehoshaphat, that they said, It is the king of Israel. Therefore they compassed about him to fight: but Jehoshaphat cried out, and the LORD helped him; and God moved them to depart from him.

kjv@2Chronicles:18:32 @ For it came to pass, that, when the captains of the chariots perceived that it was not the king of Israel, they turned back again from pursuing him.

kjv@2Chronicles:18:33 @ And a certain man drew a bow at a venture, and smote the king of Israel between the joints of the harness: therefore he said to his chariot man, Turn thine hand, that thou mayest carry me out of the host; for I am wounded.

kjv@2Chronicles:18:34 @ And the battle increased that day: howbeit the king of Israel stayed himself up in his chariot against the Syrians until the even: and about the time of the sun going down he died.

kjv@2Chronicles:19:1 @ And Jehoshaphat the king of Judah returned to his house in peace to Jerusalem.

kjv@2Chronicles:19:2 @ And Jehu the son of Hanani the seer went out to meet him, and said to king Jehoshaphat, Shouldest thou help the ungodly, and love them that hate the LORD? therefore is wrath upon thee from before the LORD.

kjv@2Chronicles:19:3 @ Nevertheless there are good things found in thee, in that thou hast taken away the groves out of the land, and hast prepared thine heart to seek God.

kjv@2Chronicles:19:4 @ And Jehoshaphat dwelt at Jerusalem: and he went out again through the people from Beersheba to mount Ephraim, and brought them back unto the LORD God of their fathers.

kjv@2Chronicles:19:5 @ And he set judges in the land throughout all the fenced cities of Judah, city by city,

kjv@2Chronicles:19:6 @ And said to the judges, Take heed what ye do: for ye judge not for man, but for the LORD, who is with you in the judgment.

kjv@2Chronicles:19:7 @ Wherefore now let the fear of the LORD be upon you; take heed and do it: for there is no iniquity with the LORD our God, nor respect of persons, nor taking of gifts.

kjv@2Chronicles:19:8 @ Moreover in Jerusalem did Jehoshaphat set of the Levites, and of the priests, and of the chief of the fathers of Israel, for the judgment of the LORD, and for controversies, when they returned to Jerusalem.

kjv@2Chronicles:20:1 @ It came to pass after this also, that the children of Moab, and the children of Ammon, and with them other beside the Ammonites, came against Jehoshaphat to battle.

kjv@2Chronicles:20:2 @ Then there came some that told Jehoshaphat, saying, There cometh a great multitude against thee from beyond the sea on this side Syria; and, behold, they be in Hazazontamar, which is Engedi.

kjv@2Chronicles:20:3 @ And Jehoshaphat feared, and set himself to seek the LORD, and proclaimed a fast throughout all Judah.

kjv@2Chronicles:20:4 @ And Judah gathered themselves together, to ask help of the LORD: even out of all the cities of Judah they came to seek the LORD.

kjv@2Chronicles:20:5 @ And Jehoshaphat stood in the congregation of Judah and Jerusalem, in the house of the LORD, before the new court,

kjv@2Chronicles:20:6 @ And said, O LORD God of our fathers, art not thou God in heaven? and rulest not thou over all the kingdoms of the heathen? and in thine hand is there not power and might, so that none is able to withstand thee?

kjv@2Chronicles:20:7 @ Art not thou our God, who didst drive out the inhabitants of this land before thy people Israel, and gavest it to the seed of Abraham thy friend for ever?

kjv@2Chronicles:20:8 @ And they dwelt therein, and have built thee a sanctuary therein for thy name, saying,

kjv@2Chronicles:20:9 @ If, when evil cometh upon us, as the sword, judgment, or pestilence, or famine, we stand before this house, and in thy presence, (for thy name is in this house,) and cry unto thee in our affliction, then thou wilt hear and help.

kjv@2Chronicles:20:10 @ And now, behold, the children of Ammon and Moab and mount Seir, whom thou wouldest not let Israel invade, when they came out of the land of Egypt, but they turned from them, and destroyed them not;

kjv@2Chronicles:20:11 @ Behold, I say, how they reward us, to come to cast us out of thy possession, which thou hast given us to inherit.

kjv@2Chronicles:20:12 @ O our God, wilt thou not judge them? for we have no might against this great company that cometh against us; neither know we what to do: but our eyes are upon thee.

kjv@2Chronicles:20:13 @ And all Judah stood before the LORD, with their little ones, their wives, and their children.

kjv@2Chronicles:20:14 @ Then upon Jahaziel the son of Zechariah, the son of Benaiah, the son of Jeiel, the son of Mattaniah, a Levite of the sons of Asaph, came the Spirit of the LORD in the midst of the congregation;

kjv@2Chronicles:20:17 @ Ye shall not need to fight in this battle: set yourselves, stand ye still, and see the salvation of the LORD with you, O Judah and Jerusalem: fear not, nor be dismayed; to morrow go out against them: for the LORD will be with you.

kjv@2Chronicles:20:18 @ And Jehoshaphat bowed his head with his face to the ground: and all Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem fell before the LORD, worshipping the LORD.

kjv@2Chronicles:20:19 @ And the Levites, of the children of the Kohathites, and of the children of the Korhites, stood up to praise the LORD God of Israel with a loud voice on high.

kjv@2Chronicles:20:20 @ And they rose early in the morning, and went forth into the wilderness of Tekoa: and as they went forth, Jehoshaphat stood and said, Hear me, O Judah, and ye inhabitants of Jerusalem; Believe in the LORD your God, so shall ye be established; believe his prophets, so shall ye prosper.

kjv@2Chronicles:20:21 @ And when he had consulted with the people, he appointed singers unto the LORD, and that should praise the beauty of holiness, as they went out before the army, and to say, Praise the LORD; for his mercy endureth for ever.

kjv@2Chronicles: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.

kjv@2Chronicles: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.

kjv@2Chronicles:20:24 @ And when Judah came toward the watch tower in the wilderness, they looked unto the multitude, and, behold, they were dead bodies fallen to the earth, and none escaped.

kjv@2Chronicles: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.

kjv@2Chronicles: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.

kjv@2Chronicles: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.

kjv@2Chronicles:20:28 @ And they came to Jerusalem with psalteries and harps and trumpets unto the house of the LORD.

kjv@2Chronicles: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.

kjv@2Chronicles:20:30 @ So the realm of Jehoshaphat was quiet: for his God gave him rest round about.

kjv@2Chronicles: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.

kjv@2Chronicles: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.

kjv@2Chronicles: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.

kjv@2Chronicles: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.

kjv@2Chronicles:20:35 @ And after this did Jehoshaphat king of Judah join himself with Ahaziah king of Israel, who did very wickedly:

kjv@2Chronicles:20:36 @ And he joined himself with him to make ships to go to Tarshish: and they made the ships in Eziongeber.

kjv@2Chronicles: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.

kjv@2Chronicles:21:1 @ Now Jehoshaphat slept with his fathers, and was buried with his fathers in the city of David. And Jehoram his son reigned in his stead.

kjv@2Chronicles:21:2 @ And he had brethren the sons of Jehoshaphat, Azariah, and Jehiel, and Zechariah, and Azariah, and Michael, and Shephatiah: all these were the sons of Jehoshaphat king of Israel.

kjv@2Chronicles:21:3 @ And their father gave them great gifts of silver, and of gold, and of precious things, with fenced cities in Judah: but the kingdom gave he to Jehoram; because he was the firstborn.

kjv@2Chronicles:21:4 @ Now when Jehoram was risen up to the kingdom of his father, he strengthened himself, and slew all his brethren with the sword, and divers also of the princes of Israel.

kjv@2Chronicles:21:5 @ Jehoram was thirty and two years old when he began to reign, and he reigned eight years in Jerusalem.

kjv@2Chronicles:21:6 @ And he walked in the way of the kings of Israel, like as did the house of Ahab: for he had the daughter of Ahab to wife: and he wrought that which was evil in the eyes of the LORD.

kjv@2Chronicles:21:7 @ Howbeit the LORD would not destroy the house of David, because of the covenant that he had made with David, and as he promised to give a light to him and to his sons for ever.

kjv@2Chronicles:21:8 @ In his days the Edomites revolted from under the dominion of Judah, and made themselves a king.

kjv@2Chronicles:21:9 @ Then Jehoram went forth with his princes, and all his chariots with him: and he rose up by night, and smote the Edomites which compassed him in, and the captains of the chariots.

kjv@2Chronicles:21:10 @ So the Edomites revolted from under the hand of Judah unto this day. The same time also did Libnah revolt from under his hand; because he had forsaken the LORD God of his fathers.

kjv@2Chronicles:21:11 @ Moreover he made high places in the mountains of Judah, and caused the inhabitants of Jerusalem to commit fornication, and compelled Judah thereto.

kjv@2Chronicles:21:12 @ And there came a writing to him from Elijah the prophet, saying, Thus saith the LORD God of David thy father, Because thou hast not walked in the ways of Jehoshaphat thy father, nor in the ways of Asa king of Judah,

kjv@2Chronicles:21:13 @ But hast walked in the way of the kings of Israel, and hast made Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem to go a whoring, like to the whoredoms of the house of Ahab, and also hast slain thy brethren of thy father's house, which were better than thyself:

kjv@2Chronicles:21:15 @ And thou shalt have great sickness by disease of thy bowels, until thy bowels fall out by reason of the sickness day by day.

kjv@2Chronicles:21:16 @ Moreover the LORD stirred up against Jehoram the spirit of the Philistines, and of the Arabians, that were near the Ethiopians:

kjv@2Chronicles:21:17 @ And they came up into Judah, and brake into it, and carried away all the substance that was found in the king's house, and his sons also, and his wives; so that there was never a son left him, save Jehoahaz, the youngest of his sons.

kjv@2Chronicles:21:18 @ And after all this the LORD smote him in his bowels with an incurable disease.

kjv@2Chronicles:21:19 @ And it came to pass, that in process of time, after the end of two years, his bowels fell out by reason of his sickness: so he died of sore diseases. And his people made no burning for him, like the burning of his fathers.

kjv@2Chronicles:21:20 @ Thirty and two years old was he when he began to reign, and he reigned in Jerusalem eight years, and departed without being desired. Howbeit they buried him in the city of David, but not in the sepulchres of the kings.

kjv@2Chronicles:22:1 @ And the inhabitants of Jerusalem made Ahaziah his youngest son king in his stead: for the band of men that came with the Arabians to the camp had slain all the eldest. So Ahaziah the son of Jehoram king of Judah reigned.

kjv@2Chronicles:22:2 @ Forty and two years old was Ahaziah when he began to reign, and he reigned one year in Jerusalem. His mother's name also was Athaliah the daughter of Omri.

kjv@2Chronicles:22:3 @ He also walked in the ways of the house of Ahab: for his mother was his counsellor to do wickedly.

kjv@2Chronicles:22:4 @ Wherefore he did evil in the sight of the LORD like the house of Ahab: for they were his counsellors after the death of his father to his destruction.

kjv@2Chronicles:22:5 @ He walked also after their counsel, and went with Jehoram the son of Ahab king of Israel to war against Hazael king of Syria at Ramothgilead: and the Syrians smote Joram.

kjv@2Chronicles:22:6 @ And he returned to be healed in Jezreel because of the wounds which were given him at Ramah, when he fought with Hazael king of Syria. And Azariah the son of Jehoram king of Judah went down to see Jehoram the son of Ahab at Jezreel, because he was sick.

kjv@2Chronicles:22:7 @ And the destruction of Ahaziah was of God by coming to Joram: for when he was come, he went out with Jehoram against Jehu the son of Nimshi, whom the LORD had anointed to cut off the house of Ahab.

kjv@2Chronicles:22:8 @ And it came to pass, that, when Jehu was executing judgment upon the house of Ahab, and found the princes of Judah, and the sons of the brethren of Ahaziah, that ministered to Ahaziah, he slew them.

kjv@2Chronicles:22:9 @ And he sought Ahaziah: and they caught him, (for he was hid in Samaria,) and brought him to Jehu: and when they had slain him, they buried him: Because, said they, he is the son of Jehoshaphat, who sought the LORD with all his heart. So the house of Ahaziah had no power to keep still the kingdom.

kjv@2Chronicles:22:10 @ But when Athaliah the mother of Ahaziah saw that her son was dead, she arose and destroyed all the seed royal of the house of Judah.

kjv@2Chronicles:22:11 @ But Jehoshabeath, the daughter of the king, took Joash the son of Ahaziah, and stole him from among the king's sons that were slain, and put him and his nurse in a bedchamber. So Jehoshabeath, the daughter of king Jehoram, the wife of Jehoiada the priest, (for she was the sister of Ahaziah,) hid him from Athaliah, so that she slew him not.

kjv@2Chronicles:22:12 @ And he was with them hid in the house of God six years: and Athaliah reigned over the land.

kjv@2Chronicles:23:1 @ And in the seventh year Jehoiada strengthened himself, and took the captains of hundreds, Azariah the son of Jeroham, and Ishmael the son of Jehohanan, and Azariah the son of Obed, and Maaseiah the son of Adaiah, and Elishaphat the son of Zichri, into covenant with him.

kjv@2Chronicles:23:2 @ And they went about in Judah, and gathered the Levites out of all the cities of Judah, and the chief of the fathers of Israel, and they came to Jerusalem.

kjv@2Chronicles:23:3 @ And all the congregation made a covenant with the king in the house of God. And he said unto them, Behold, the king's son shall reign, as the LORD hath said of the sons of David.

kjv@2Chronicles:23:4 @ This is the thing that ye shall do; A third part of you entering on the sabbath, of the priests and of the Levites, shall be porters of the doors;

kjv@2Chronicles:23:5 @ And a third part shall be at the king's house; and a third part at the gate of the foundation: and all the people shall be in the courts of the house of the LORD.

kjv@2Chronicles:23:6 @ But let none come into the house of the LORD, save the priests, and they that minister of the Levites; they shall go in, for they are holy: but all the people shall keep the watch of the LORD.

kjv@2Chronicles:23:7 @ And the Levites shall compass the king round about, every man with his weapons in his hand; and whosoever else cometh into the house, he shall be put to death: but be ye with the king when he cometh in, and when he goeth out.

kjv@2Chronicles:23:8 @ So the Levites and all Judah did according to all things that Jehoiada the priest had commanded, and took every man his men that were to come in on the sabbath, with them that were to go out on the sabbath: for Jehoiada the priest dismissed not the courses.

kjv@2Chronicles:23:9 @ Moreover Jehoiada the priest delivered to the captains of hundreds spears, and bucklers, and shields, that had been king David's, which were in the house of God.

kjv@2Chronicles:23:10 @ And he set all the people, every man having his weapon in his hand, from the right side of the temple to the left side of the temple, along by the altar and the temple, by the king round about.

kjv@2Chronicles:23:11 @ Then they brought out the king's son, and put upon him the crown, and gave him the testimony, and made him king. And Jehoiada and his sons anointed him, and said, God save the king.

kjv@2Chronicles:23:12 @ Now when Athaliah heard the noise of the people running and praising the king, she came to the people into the house of the LORD:

kjv@2Chronicles:23:13 @ And she looked, and, behold, the king stood at his pillar at the entering in, and the princes and the trumpets by the king: and all the people of the land rejoiced, and sounded with trumpets, also the singers with instruments of musick, and such as taught to sing praise. Then Athaliah rent her clothes, and said, Treason, Treason.

kjv@2Chronicles:23:14 @ Then Jehoiada the priest brought out the captains of hundreds that were set over the host, and said unto them, Have her forth of the ranges: and whoso followeth her, let him be slain with the sword. For the priest said, Slay her not in the house of the LORD.

kjv@2Chronicles:23:15 @ So they laid hands on her; and when she was come to the entering of the horse gate by the king's house, they slew her there.

kjv@2Chronicles:23:16 @ And Jehoiada made a covenant between him, and between all the people, and between the king, that they should be the LORD'S people.

kjv@2Chronicles:23:17 @ Then all the people went to the house of Baal, and brake it down, and brake his altars and his images in pieces, and slew Mattan the priest of Baal before the altars.

kjv@2Chronicles:23:18 @ Also Jehoiada appointed the offices of the house of the LORD by the hand of the priests the Levites, whom David had distributed in the house of the LORD, to offer the burnt offerings of the LORD, as it is written in the law of Moses, with rejoicing and with singing, as it was ordained by David.

kjv@2Chronicles:23:19 @ And he set the porters at the gates of the house of the LORD, that none which was unclean in any thing should enter in.

kjv@2Chronicles:23:20 @ And he took the captains of hundreds, and the nobles, and the governors of the people, and all the people of the land, and brought down the king from the house of the LORD: and they came through the high gate into the king's house, and set the king upon the throne of the kingdom.

kjv@2Chronicles:23:21 @ And all the people of the land rejoiced: and the city was quiet, after that they had slain Athaliah with the sword.

kjv@2Chronicles:24:1 @ Joash was seven years old when he began to reign, and he reigned forty years in Jerusalem. His mother's name also was Zibiah of Beersheba.

kjv@2Chronicles:24:2 @ And Joash did that which was right in the sight of the LORD all the days of Jehoiada the priest.

kjv@2Chronicles:24:3 @ And Jehoiada took for him two wives; and he begat sons and daughters.

kjv@2Chronicles:24:4 @ And it came to pass after this, that Joash was minded to repair the house of the LORD.

kjv@2Chronicles:24:5 @ And he gathered together the priests and the Levites, and said to them, Go out unto the cities of Judah, and gather of all Israel money to repair the house of your God from year to year, and see that ye hasten the matter. Howbeit the Levites hastened it not.

kjv@2Chronicles:24:6 @ And the king called for Jehoiada the chief, and said unto him, Why hast thou not required of the Levites to bring in out of Judah and out of Jerusalem the collection, according to the commandment of Moses the servant of the LORD, and of the congregation of Israel, for the tabernacle of witness?

kjv@2Chronicles:24:7 @ For the sons of Athaliah, that wicked woman, had broken up the house of God; and also all the dedicated things of the house of the LORD did they bestow upon Baalim.

kjv@2Chronicles:24:8 @ And at the king's commandment they made a chest, and set it without at the gate of the house of the LORD.

kjv@2Chronicles:24:9 @ And they made a proclamation through Judah and Jerusalem, to bring in to the LORD the collection that Moses the servant of God laid upon Israel in the wilderness.

kjv@2Chronicles:24:10 @ And all the princes and all the people rejoiced, and brought in, and cast into the chest, until they had made an end.

kjv@2Chronicles:24:11 @ Now it came to pass, that at what time the chest was brought unto the king's office by the hand of the Levites, and when they saw that there was much money, the king's scribe and the high priest's officer came and emptied the chest, and took it, and carried it to his place again. Thus they did day by day, and gathered money in abundance.

kjv@2Chronicles:24:12 @ And the king and Jehoiada gave it to such as did the work of the service of the house of the LORD, and hired masons and carpenters to repair the house of the LORD, and also such as wrought iron and brass to mend the house of the LORD.

kjv@2Chronicles:24:13 @ So the workmen wrought, and the work was perfected by them, and they set the house of God in his state, and strengthened it.

And they offered burnt offerings in the house of the LORD continually all the days of Jehoiada.

kjv@2Chronicles:24:15 @ But Jehoiada waxed old, and was full of days when he died; an hundred and thirty years old was he when he died.

kjv@2Chronicles:24:16 @ And they buried him in the city of David among the kings, because he had done good in Israel, both toward God, and toward his house.

kjv@2Chronicles:24:17 @ Now after the death of Jehoiada came the princes of Judah, and made obeisance to the king. Then the king hearkened unto them.

kjv@2Chronicles:24:18 @ And they left the house of the LORD God of their fathers, and served groves and idols: and wrath came upon Judah and Jerusalem for this their trespass.

kjv@2Chronicles:24:19 @ Yet he sent prophets to them, to bring them again unto the LORD; and they testified against them: but they would not give ear.

kjv@2Chronicles:24:20 @ And the Spirit of God came upon Zechariah the son of Jehoiada the priest, which stood above the people, and said unto them, Thus saith God, Why transgress ye the commandments of the LORD, that ye cannot prosper? because ye have forsaken the LORD, he hath also forsaken you.

kjv@2Chronicles:24:22 @ Thus Joash the king remembered not the kindness which Jehoiada his father had done to him, but slew his son. And when he died, he said, The LORD look upon it, and require it.

kjv@2Chronicles:24:23 @ And it came to pass at the end of the year, that the host of Syria came up against him: and they came to Judah and Jerusalem, and destroyed all the princes of the people from among the people, and sent all the spoil of them unto the king of Damascus.

kjv@2Chronicles:24:24 @ For the army of the Syrians came with a small company of men, and the LORD delivered a very great host into their hand, because they had forsaken the LORD God of their fathers. So they executed judgment against Joash.

kjv@2Chronicles:25:12 @ And other ten thousand left alive did the children of Judah carry away captive, and brought them unto the top of the rock, and cast them down from the top of the rock, that they all were broken in pieces.

kjv@2Chronicles:25:13 @ But the soldiers of the army which Amaziah sent back, that they should not go with him to battle, fell upon the cities of Judah, from Samaria even unto Bethhoron, and smote three thousand of them, and took much spoil.

kjv@2Chronicles:25:14 @ Now it came to pass, after that Amaziah was come from the slaughter of the Edomites, that he brought the gods of the children of Seir, and set them up to be his gods, and bowed down himself before them, and burned incense unto them.

kjv@2Chronicles:25:15 @ Wherefore the anger of the LORD was kindled against Amaziah, and he sent unto him a prophet, which said unto him, Why hast thou sought after the gods of the people, which could not deliver their own people out of thine hand?

kjv@2Chronicles:26:1 @ Then all the people of Judah took Uzziah, who was sixteen years old, and made him king in the room of his father Amaziah.

kjv@2Chronicles:26:2 @ He built Eloth, and restored it to Judah, after that the king slept with his fathers.

kjv@2Chronicles:26:5 @ And he sought God in the days of Zechariah, who had understanding in the visions of God: and as long as he sought the LORD, God made him to prosper.

kjv@2Chronicles:26:6 @ And he went forth and warred against the Philistines, and brake down the wall of Gath, and the wall of Jabneh, and the wall of Ashdod, and built cities about Ashdod, and among the Philistines.

kjv@2Chronicles:26:7 @ And God helped him against the Philistines, and against the Arabians that dwelt in Gurbaal, and the Mehunims.

kjv@2Chronicles:26:8 @ And the Ammonites gave gifts to Uzziah: and his name spread abroad even to the entering in of Egypt; for he strengthened himself exceedingly.

kjv@2Chronicles:26:9 @ Moreover Uzziah built towers in Jerusalem at the corner gate, and at the valley gate, and at the turning of the wall, and fortified them.

kjv@2Chronicles:26:10 @ Also he built towers in the desert, and digged many wells: for he had much cattle, both in the low country, and in the plains: husbandmen also, and vine dressers in the mountains, and in Carmel: for he loved husbandry.

kjv@2Chronicles:26:11 @ Moreover Uzziah had an host of fighting men, that went out to war by bands, according to the number of their account by the hand of Jeiel the scribe and Maaseiah the ruler, under the hand of Hananiah, one of the king's captains.

kjv@2Chronicles:26:12 @ The whole number of the chief of the fathers of the mighty men of valour were two thousand and six hundred.

kjv@2Chronicles:26:15 @ And he made in Jerusalem engines, invented by cunning men, to be on the towers and upon the bulwarks, to shoot arrows and great stones withal. And his name spread far abroad; for he was marvellously helped, till he was strong.

kjv@2Chronicles:26:16 @ But when he was strong, his heart was lifted up to his destruction: for he transgressed against the LORD his God, and went into the temple of the LORD to burn incense upon the altar of incense.

kjv@2Chronicles:26:17 @ And Azariah the priest went in after him, and with him fourscore priests of the LORD, that were valiant men:

kjv@2Chronicles:26:18 @ And they withstood Uzziah the king, and said unto him, It appertaineth not unto thee, Uzziah, to burn incense unto the LORD, but to the priests the sons of Aaron, that are consecrated to burn incense: go out of the sanctuary; for thou hast trespassed; neither shall it be for thine honour from the LORD God.

kjv@2Chronicles:26:19 @ Then Uzziah was wroth, and had a censer in his hand to burn incense: and while he was wroth with the priests, the leprosy even rose up in his forehead before the priests in the house of the LORD, from beside the incense altar.

kjv@2Chronicles:26:20 @ And Azariah the chief priest, and all the priests, looked upon him, and, behold, he was leprous in his forehead, and they thrust him out from thence; yea, himself hasted also to go out, because the LORD had smitten him.

kjv@2Chronicles:26:21 @ And Uzziah the king was a leper unto the day of his death, and dwelt in a several house, being a leper; for he was cut off from the house of the LORD: and Jotham his son was over the king's house, judging the people of the land.

kjv@2Chronicles:26:23 @ So Uzziah slept with his fathers, and they buried him with his fathers in the field of the burial which belonged to the kings; for they said, He is a leper: and Jotham his son reigned in his stead.

kjv@2Chronicles:27:3 @ He built the high gate of the house of the LORD, and on the wall of Ophel he built much.

kjv@2Chronicles:27:4 @ Moreover he built cities in the mountains of Judah, and in the forests he built castles and towers.

kjv@2Chronicles:27:5 @ He fought also with the king of the Ammonites, and prevailed against them. And the children of Ammon gave him the same year an hundred talents of silver, and ten thousand measures of wheat, and ten thousand of barley.

kjv@2Chronicles:28:1 @ Ahaz was twenty years old when he began to reign, and he reigned sixteen years in Jerusalem: but he did not that which was right in the sight of the LORD, like David his father:

kjv@2Chronicles:28:2 @ For he walked in the ways of the kings of Israel, and made also molten images for Baalim.

kjv@2Chronicles:28:3 @ Moreover he burnt incense in the valley of the son of Hinnom, and burnt his children in the fire, after the abominations of the heathen whom the LORD had cast out before the children of Israel.

kjv@2Chronicles:28:4 @ He sacrificed also and burnt incense in the high places, and on the hills, and under every green tree.

kjv@2Chronicles:28:5 @ Wherefore the LORD his God delivered him into the hand of the king of Syria; and they smote him, and carried away a great multitude of them captives, and brought them to Damascus. And he was also delivered into the hand of the king of Israel, who smote him with a great slaughter.

kjv@2Chronicles:28:6 @ For Pekah the son of Remaliah slew in Judah an hundred and twenty thousand in one day, which were all valiant men; because they had forsaken the LORD God of their fathers.

kjv@2Chronicles:28:7 @ And Zichri, a mighty man of Ephraim, slew Maaseiah the king's son, and Azrikam the governor of the house, and Elkanah that was next to the king.

kjv@2Chronicles:28:8 @ And the children of Israel carried away captive of their brethren two hundred thousand, women, sons, and daughters, and took also away much spoil from them, and brought the spoil to Samaria.

kjv@2Chronicles:28:9 @ But a prophet of the LORD was there, whose name was Oded: and he went out before the host that came to Samaria, and said unto them, Behold, because the LORD God of your fathers was wroth with Judah, he hath delivered them into your hand, and ye have slain them in a rage that reacheth up unto heaven.

kjv@2Chronicles:28:10 @ And now ye purpose to keep under the children of Judah and Jerusalem for bondmen and bondwomen unto you: but are there not with you, even with you, sins against the LORD your God?

kjv@2Chronicles:28:11 @ Now hear me therefore, and deliver the captives again, which ye have taken captive of your brethren: for the fierce wrath of the LORD is upon you.

kjv@2Chronicles:28:14 @ So the armed men left the captives and the spoil before the princes and all the congregation.

kjv@2Chronicles:28:15 @ And the men which were expressed by name rose up, and took the captives, and with the spoil clothed all that were naked among them, and arrayed them, and shod them, and gave them to eat and to drink, and anointed them, and carried all the feeble of them upon asses, and brought them to Jericho, the city of palm trees, to their brethren: then they returned to Samaria.

kjv@2Chronicles:28:16 @ At that time did king Ahaz send unto the kings of Assyria to help him.

kjv@2Chronicles:28:19 @ For the LORD brought Judah low because of Ahaz king of Israel; for he made Judah naked, and transgressed sore against the LORD.

kjv@2Chronicles:28:20 @ And Tilgathpilneser king of Assyria came unto him, and distressed him, but strengthened him not.

kjv@2Chronicles:28:21 @ For Ahaz took away a portion out of the house of the LORD, and out of the house of the king, and of the princes, and gave it unto the king of Assyria: but he helped him not.

kjv@2Chronicles:28:22 @ And in the time of his distress did he trespass yet more against the LORD: this is that king Ahaz.

kjv@2Chronicles:28:23 @ For he sacrificed unto the gods of Damascus, which smote him: and he said, Because the gods of the kings of Syria help them, therefore will I sacrifice to them, that they may help me. But they were the ruin of him, and of all Israel.

kjv@2Chronicles:28:24 @ And Ahaz gathered together the vessels of the house of God, and cut in pieces the vessels of the house of God, and shut up the doors of the house of the LORD, and he made him altars in every corner of Jerusalem.

kjv@2Chronicles:28:25 @ And in every several city of Judah he made high places to burn incense unto other gods, and provoked to anger the LORD God of his fathers.

kjv@2Chronicles:28:26 @ Now the rest of his acts and of all his ways, first and last, behold, they are written in the book of the kings of Judah and Israel.

kjv@2Chronicles:28:27 @ And Ahaz slept with his fathers, and they buried him in the city, even in Jerusalem: but they brought him not into the sepulchres of the kings of Israel: and Hezekiah his son reigned in his stead.

kjv@2Chronicles:29:1 @ Hezekiah began to reign when he was five and twenty years old, and he reigned nine and twenty years in Jerusalem. And his mother's name was Abijah, the daughter of Zechariah.

kjv@2Chronicles:29:2 @ And he did that which was right in the sight of the LORD, according to all that David his father had done.

kjv@2Chronicles:29:3 @ He in the first year of his reign, in the first month, opened the doors of the house of the LORD, and repaired them.

kjv@2Chronicles:29:4 @ And he brought in the priests and the Levites, and gathered them together into the east street,

kjv@2Chronicles:29:5 @ And said unto them, Hear me, ye Levites, sanctify now yourselves, and sanctify the house of the LORD God of your fathers, and carry forth the filthiness out of the holy place.

kjv@2Chronicles:29:6 @ For our fathers have trespassed, and done that which was evil in the eyes of the LORD our God, and have forsaken him, and have turned away their faces from the habitation of the LORD, and turned their backs.

kjv@2Chronicles:29:7 @ Also they have shut up the doors of the porch, and put out the lamps, and have not burned incense nor offered burnt offerings in the holy place unto the God of Israel.

kjv@2Chronicles:29:8 @ Wherefore the wrath of the LORD was upon Judah and Jerusalem, and he hath delivered them to trouble, to astonishment, and to hissing, as ye see with your eyes.

kjv@2Chronicles:29:9 @ For, lo, our fathers have fallen by the sword, and our sons and our daughters and our wives are in captivity for this.

kjv@2Chronicles:29:10 @ Now it is in mine heart to make a covenant with the LORD God of Israel, that his fierce wrath may turn away from us.

kjv@2Chronicles:29:11 @ My sons, be not now negligent: for the LORD hath chosen you to stand before him, to serve him, and that ye should minister unto him, and burn incense.

kjv@2Chronicles:29:12 @ Then the Levites arose, Mahath the son of Amasai, and Joel the son of Azariah, of the sons of the Kohathites: and of the sons of Merari, Kish the son of Abdi, and Azariah the son of Jehalelel: and of the Gershonites; Joah the son of Zimmah, and Eden the son of Joah:

kjv@2Chronicles:29:15 @ And they gathered their brethren, and sanctified themselves, and came, according to the commandment of the king, by the words of the LORD, to cleanse the house of the LORD.

kjv@2Chronicles:29:16 @ And the priests went into the inner part of the house of the LORD, to cleanse it, and brought out all the uncleanness that they found in the temple of the LORD into the court of the house of the LORD. And the Levites took it, to carry it out abroad into the brook Kidron.

kjv@2Chronicles:29:17 @ Now they began on the first day of the first month to sanctify, and on the eighth day of the month came they to the porch of the LORD: so they sanctified the house of the LORD in eight days; and in the sixteenth day of the first month they made an end.

kjv@2Chronicles:29:18 @ Then they went in to Hezekiah the king, and said, We have cleansed all the house of the LORD, and the altar of burnt offering, with all the vessels thereof, and the shewbread table, with all the vessels thereof.

kjv@2Chronicles:29:19 @ Moreover all the vessels, which king Ahaz in his reign did cast away in his transgression, have we prepared and sanctified, and, behold, they are before the altar of the LORD.

kjv@2Chronicles:29:20 @ Then Hezekiah the king rose early, and gathered the rulers of the city, and went up to the house of the LORD.

kjv@2Chronicles:29:21 @ And they brought seven bullocks, and seven rams, and seven lambs, and seven he goats, for a sin offering for the kingdom, and for the sanctuary, and for Judah. And he commanded the priests the sons of Aaron to offer them on the altar of the LORD.

kjv@2Chronicles:29:22 @ So they killed the bullocks, and the priests received the blood, and sprinkled it on the altar: likewise, when they had killed the rams, they sprinkled the blood upon the altar: they killed also the lambs, and they sprinkled the blood upon the altar.

kjv@2Chronicles:29:23 @ And they brought forth the he goats for the sin offering before the king and the congregation; and they laid their hands upon them:

kjv@2Chronicles:29:24 @ And the priests killed them, and they made reconciliation with their blood upon the altar, to make an atonement for all Israel: for the king commanded that the burnt offering and the sin offering should be made for all Israel.

kjv@2Chronicles:29:25 @ And he set the Levites in the house of the LORD with cymbals, with psalteries, and with harps, according to the commandment of David, and of Gad the king's seer, and Nathan the prophet: for so was the commandment of the LORD by his prophets.

kjv@2Chronicles:29:26 @ And the Levites stood with the instruments of David, and the priests with the trumpets.

kjv@2Chronicles:29:27 @ And Hezekiah commanded to offer the burnt offering upon the altar. And when the burnt offering began, the song of the LORD began also with the trumpets, and with the instruments ordained by David king of Israel.

kjv@2Chronicles:29:28 @ And all the congregation worshipped, and the singers sang, and the trumpeters sounded: and all this continued until the burnt offering was finished.

kjv@2Chronicles:29:29 @ And when they had made an end of offering, the king and all that were present with him bowed themselves, and worshipped.

kjv@2Chronicles:29:30 @ Moreover Hezekiah the king and the princes commanded the Levites to sing praise unto the LORD with the words of David, and of Asaph the seer. And they sang praises with gladness, and they bowed their heads and worshipped.

kjv@2Chronicles:29:31 @ Then Hezekiah answered and said, Now ye have consecrated yourselves unto the LORD, come near and bring sacrifices and thank offerings into the house of the LORD. And the congregation brought in sacrifices and thank offerings; and as many as were of a free heart burnt offerings.

kjv@2Chronicles:29:32 @ And the number of the burnt offerings, which the congregation brought, was threescore and ten bullocks, an hundred rams, and two hundred lambs: all these were for a burnt offering to the LORD.

kjv@2Chronicles:29:33 @ And the consecrated things were six hundred oxen and three thousand sheep.

kjv@2Chronicles:29:34 @ But the priests were too few, so that they could not flay all the burnt offerings: wherefore their brethren the Levites did help them, till the work was ended, and until the other priests had sanctified themselves: for the Levites were more upright in heart to sanctify themselves than the priests.

kjv@2Chronicles:29:35 @ And also the burnt offerings were in abundance, with the fat of the peace offerings, and the drink offerings for every burnt offering. So the service of the house of the LORD was set in order.

kjv@2Chronicles:29:36 @ And Hezekiah rejoiced, and all the people, that God had prepared the people: for the thing was done suddenly.

kjv@2Chronicles:30:1 @ And Hezekiah sent to all Israel and Judah, and wrote letters also to Ephraim and Manasseh, that they should come to the house of the LORD at Jerusalem, to keep the passover unto the LORD God of Israel.

kjv@2Chronicles:30:2 @ For the king had taken counsel, and his princes, and all the congregation in Jerusalem, to keep the passover in the second month.

kjv@2Chronicles:30:3 @ For they could not keep it at that time, because the priests had not sanctified themselves sufficiently, neither had the people gathered themselves together to Jerusalem.

kjv@2Chronicles:30:4 @ And the thing pleased the king and all the congregation.

kjv@2Chronicles:30:5 @ So they established a decree to make proclamation throughout all Israel, from Beersheba even to Dan, that they should come to keep the passover unto the LORD God of Israel at Jerusalem: for they had not done it of a long time in such sort as it was written.

kjv@2Chronicles:30:6 @ So the posts went with the letters from the king and his princes throughout all Israel and Judah, and according to the commandment of the king, saying, Ye children of Israel, turn again unto the LORD God of Abraham, Isaac, and Israel, and he will return to the remnant of you, that are escaped out of the hand of the kings of Assyria.

kjv@2Chronicles:30:7 @ And be not ye like your fathers, and like your brethren, which trespassed against the LORD God of their fathers, who therefore gave them up to desolation, as ye see.

kjv@2Chronicles:30:8 @ Now be ye not stiffnecked, as your fathers were, but yield yourselves unto the LORD, and enter into his sanctuary, which he hath sanctified for ever: and serve the LORD your God, that the fierceness of his wrath may turn away from you.

kjv@2Chronicles:30:9 @ For if ye turn again unto the LORD, your brethren and your children shall find compassion before them that lead them captive, so that they shall come again into this land: for the LORD your God is gracious and merciful, and will not turn away his face from you, if ye return unto him.

kjv@2Chronicles:30:10 @ So the posts passed from city to city through the country of Ephraim and Manasseh even unto Zebulun: but they laughed them to scorn, and mocked them.

kjv@2Chronicles:30:11 @ Nevertheless divers of Asher and Manasseh and of Zebulun humbled themselves, and came to Jerusalem.

kjv@2Chronicles:30:12 @ Also in Judah the hand of God was to give them one heart to do the commandment of the king and of the princes, by the word of the LORD.

kjv@2Chronicles:30:13 @ And there assembled at Jerusalem much people to keep the feast of unleavened bread in the second month, a very great congregation.

kjv@2Chronicles:30:14 @ And they arose and took away the altars that were in Jerusalem, and all the altars for incense took they away, and cast them into the brook Kidron.

kjv@2Chronicles:30:15 @ Then they killed the passover on the fourteenth day of the second month: and the priests and the Levites were ashamed, and sanctified themselves, and brought in the burnt offerings into the house of the LORD.

kjv@2Chronicles:30:16 @ And they stood in their place after their manner, according to the law of Moses the man of God: the priests sprinkled the blood, which they received of the hand of the Levites.

kjv@2Chronicles:30:17 @ For there were many in the congregation that were not sanctified: therefore the Levites had the charge of the killing of the passovers for every one that was not clean, to sanctify them unto the LORD.

kjv@2Chronicles:30:18 @ For a multitude of the people, even many of Ephraim, and Manasseh, Issachar, and Zebulun, had not cleansed themselves, yet did they eat the passover otherwise than it was written. But Hezekiah prayed for them, saying, The good LORD pardon every one

kjv@2Chronicles:30:19 @ That prepareth his heart to seek God, the LORD God of his fathers, though he be not cleansed according to the purification of the sanctuary.

kjv@2Chronicles:30:20 @ And the LORD hearkened to Hezekiah, and healed the people.

kjv@2Chronicles:30:21 @ And the children of Israel that were present at Jerusalem kept the feast of unleavened bread seven days with great gladness: and the Levites and the priests praised the LORD day by day, singing with loud instruments unto the LORD.

kjv@2Chronicles:30:22 @ And Hezekiah spake comfortably unto all the Levites that taught the good knowledge of the LORD: and they did eat throughout the feast seven days, offering peace offerings, and making confession to the LORD God of their fathers.

kjv@2Chronicles:30:23 @ And the whole assembly took counsel to keep other seven days: and they kept other seven days with gladness.

kjv@2Chronicles:30:24 @ For Hezekiah king of Judah did give to the congregation a thousand bullocks and seven thousand sheep; and the princes gave to the congregation a thousand bullocks and ten thousand sheep: and a great number of priests sanctified themselves.

kjv@2Chronicles:30:25 @ And all the congregation of Judah, with the priests and the Levites, and all the congregation that came out of Israel, and the strangers that came out of the land of Israel, and that dwelt in Judah, rejoiced.

kjv@2Chronicles:30:26 @ So there was great joy in Jerusalem: for since the time of Solomon the son of David king of Israel there was not the like in Jerusalem.

kjv@2Chronicles:30:27 @ Then the priests the Levites arose and blessed the people: and their voice was heard, and their prayer came up to his holy dwelling place, even unto heaven.

kjv@2Chronicles:31:1 @ Now when all this was finished, all Israel that were present went out to the cities of Judah, and brake the images in pieces, and cut down the groves, and threw down the high places and the altars out of all Judah and Benjamin, in Ephraim also and Manasseh, until they had utterly destroyed them all. Then all the children of Israel returned, every man to his possession, into their own cities.

kjv@2Chronicles:31:2 @ And Hezekiah appointed the courses of the priests and the Levites after their courses, every man according to his service, the priests and Levites for burnt offerings and for peace offerings, to minister, and to give thanks, and to praise in the gates of the tents of the LORD.

kjv@2Chronicles:31:3 @ He appointed also the king's portion of his substance for the burnt offerings, to wit, for the morning and evening burnt offerings, and the burnt offerings for the sabbaths, and for the new moons, and for the set feasts, as it is written in the law of the LORD.

kjv@2Chronicles:31:5 @ And as soon as the commandment came abroad, the children of Israel brought in abundance the firstfruits of corn, wine, and oil, and honey, and of all the increase of the field; and the tithe of all things brought they in abundantly.

kjv@2Chronicles:31:6 @ And concerning the children of Israel and Judah, that dwelt in the cities of Judah, they also brought in the tithe of oxen and sheep, and the tithe of holy things which were consecrated unto the LORD their God, and laid them by heaps.

kjv@2Chronicles:31:7 @ In the third month they began to lay the foundation of the heaps, and finished them in the seventh month.

kjv@2Chronicles:31:8 @ And when Hezekiah and the princes came and saw the heaps, they blessed the LORD, and his people Israel.

kjv@2Chronicles:31:9 @ Then Hezekiah questioned with the priests and the Levites concerning the heaps.

kjv@2Chronicles:31:10 @ And Azariah the chief priest of the house of Zadok answered him, and said, Since the people began to bring the offerings into the house of the LORD, we have had enough to eat, and have left plenty: for the LORD hath blessed his people; and that which is left is this great store.

kjv@2Chronicles:31:11 @ Then Hezekiah commanded to prepare chambers in the house of the LORD; and they prepared them,

kjv@2Chronicles:31:12 @ And brought in the offerings and the tithes and the dedicated things faithfully: over which Cononiah the Levite was ruler, and Shimei his brother was the next.

kjv@2Chronicles:31:14 @ And Kore the son of Imnah the Levite, the porter toward the east, was over the freewill offerings of God, to distribute the oblations of the LORD, and the most holy things.

kjv@2Chronicles:31:15 @ And next him were Eden, and Miniamin, and Jeshua, and Shemaiah, Amariah, and Shecaniah, in the cities of the priests, in their set office, to give to their brethren by courses, as well to the great as to the small:

kjv@2Chronicles:31:21 @ And in every work that he began in the service of the house of God, and in the law, and in the commandments, to seek his God, he did it with all his heart, and prospered.

kjv@2Chronicles:32:1 @ After these things, and the establishment thereof, Sennacherib king of Assyria came, and entered into Judah, and encamped against the fenced cities, and thought to win them for himself.

kjv@2Chronicles:32:2 @ And when Hezekiah saw that Sennacherib was come, and that he was purposed to fight against Jerusalem,

kjv@2Chronicles:32:3 @ He took counsel with his princes and his mighty men to stop the waters of the fountains which were without the city: and they did help him.

kjv@2Chronicles:32:4 @ So there was gathered much people together, who stopped all the fountains, and the brook that ran through the midst of the land, saying, Why should the kings of Assyria come, and find much water?

kjv@2Chronicles:32:5 @ Also he strengthened himself, and built up all the wall that was broken, and raised it up to the towers, and another wall without, and repaired Millo in the city of David, and made darts and shields in abundance.

kjv@2Chronicles:32:6 @ And he set captains of war over the people, and gathered them together to him in the street of the gate of the city, and spake comfortably to them, saying,

kjv@2Chronicles:32:7 @ Be strong and courageous, be not afraid nor dismayed for the king of Assyria, nor for all the multitude that is with him: for there be more with us than with him:

kjv@2Chronicles:32:8 @ With him is an arm of flesh; but with us is the LORD our God to help us, and to fight our battles. And the people rested themselves upon the words of Hezekiah king of Judah.

kjv@2Chronicles:32:9 @ After this did Sennacherib king of Assyria send his servants to Jerusalem, (but he himself laid siege against Lachish, and all his power with him,) unto Hezekiah king of Judah, and unto all Judah that were at Jerusalem, saying,

kjv@2Chronicles:32:10 @ Thus saith Sennacherib king of Assyria, Whereon do ye trust, that ye abide in the siege in Jerusalem?

kjv@2Chronicles:32:11 @ Doth not Hezekiah persuade you to give over yourselves to die by famine and by thirst, saying, The LORD our God shall deliver us out of the hand of the king of Assyria?

kjv@2Chronicles:32:12 @ Hath not the same Hezekiah taken away his high places and his altars, and commanded Judah and Jerusalem, saying, Ye shall worship before one altar, and burn incense upon it?

kjv@2Chronicles:32:13 @ Know ye not what I and my fathers have done unto all the people of other lands? were the gods of the nations of those lands any ways able to deliver their lands out of mine hand?

kjv@2Chronicles:32:14 @ Who was there among all the gods of those nations that my fathers utterly destroyed, that could deliver his people out of mine hand, that your God should be able to deliver you out of mine hand?

kjv@2Chronicles:32:15 @ Now therefore let not Hezekiah deceive you, nor persuade you on this manner, neither yet believe him: for no god of any nation or kingdom was able to deliver his people out of mine hand, and out of the hand of my fathers: how much less shall your God deliver you out of mine hand?

kjv@2Chronicles:32:16 @ And his servants spake yet more against the LORD God, and against his servant Hezekiah.

kjv@2Chronicles:32:17 @ He wrote also letters to rail on the LORD God of Israel, and to speak against him, saying, As the gods of the nations of other lands have not delivered their people out of mine hand, so shall not the God of Hezekiah deliver his people out of mine hand.

kjv@2Chronicles:32:18 @ Then they cried with a loud voice in the Jews' speech unto the people of Jerusalem that were on the wall, to affright them, and to trouble them; that they might take the city.

kjv@2Chronicles:32:19 @ And they spake against the God of Jerusalem, as against the gods of the people of the earth, which were the work of the hands of man.

kjv@2Chronicles:32:20 @ And for this cause Hezekiah the king, and the prophet Isaiah the son of Amoz, prayed and cried to heaven.

kjv@2Chronicles:32:21 @ And the LORD sent an angel, which cut off all the mighty men of valour, and the leaders and captains in the camp of the king of Assyria. So he returned with shame of face to his own land. And when he was come into the house of his god, they that came forth of his own bowels slew him there with the sword.

kjv@2Chronicles:32:22 @ Thus the LORD saved Hezekiah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem from the hand of Sennacherib the king of Assyria, and from the hand of all other, and guided them on every side.

kjv@2Chronicles:32:23 @ And many brought gifts unto the LORD to Jerusalem, and presents to Hezekiah king of Judah: so that he was magnified in the sight of all nations from thenceforth.

kjv@2Chronicles:32:24 @ In those days Hezekiah was sick to the death, and prayed unto the LORD: and he spake unto him, and he gave him a sign.

kjv@2Chronicles:32:25 @ But Hezekiah rendered not again according to the benefit done unto him; for his heart was lifted up: therefore there was wrath upon him, and upon Judah and Jerusalem.

kjv@2Chronicles:32:26 @ Notwithstanding Hezekiah humbled himself for the pride of his heart, both he and the inhabitants of Jerusalem, so that the wrath of the LORD came not upon them in the days of Hezekiah.

kjv@2Chronicles:32:27 @ And Hezekiah had exceeding much riches and honour: and he made himself treasuries for silver, and for gold, and for precious stones, and for spices, and for shields, and for all manner of pleasant jewels;

kjv@2Chronicles:32:28 @ Storehouses also for the increase of corn, and wine, and oil; and stalls for all manner of beasts, and cotes for flocks.

kjv@2Chronicles:32:29 @ Moreover he provided him cities, and possessions of flocks and herds in abundance: for God had given him substance very much.

kjv@2Chronicles:32:30 @ This same Hezekiah also stopped the upper watercourse of Gihon, and brought it straight down to the west side of the city of David. And Hezekiah prospered in all his works.

kjv@2Chronicles:32:31 @ Howbeit in the business of the ambassadors of the princes of Babylon, who sent unto him to enquire of the wonder that was done in the land, God left him, to try him, that he might know all that was in his heart.

kjv@2Chronicles:32:32 @ Now the rest of the acts of Hezekiah, and his goodness, behold, they are written in the vision of Isaiah the prophet, the son of Amoz, and in the book of the kings of Judah and Israel.

kjv@2Chronicles:32:33 @ And Hezekiah slept with his fathers, and they buried him in the chiefest of the sepulchres of the sons of David: and all Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem did him honour at his death. And Manasseh his son reigned in his stead.

kjv@2Chronicles:33:1 @ Manasseh was twelve years old when he began to reign, and he reigned fifty and five years in Jerusalem:

kjv@2Chronicles:33:2 @ But did that which was evil in the sight of the LORD, like unto the abominations of the heathen, whom the LORD had cast out before the children of Israel.

kjv@2Chronicles:33:3 @ For he built again the high places which Hezekiah his father had broken down, and he reared up altars for Baalim, and made groves, and worshipped all the host of heaven, and served them.

kjv@2Chronicles:33:4 @ Also he built altars in the house of the LORD, whereof the LORD had said, In Jerusalem shall my name be for ever.

kjv@2Chronicles:33:5 @ And he built altars for all the host of heaven in the two courts of the house of the LORD.

kjv@2Chronicles:33:6 @ And he caused his children to pass through the fire in the valley of the son of Hinnom: also he observed times, and used enchantments, and used witchcraft, and dealt with a familiar spirit, and with wizards: he wrought much evil in the sight of the LORD, to provoke him to anger.

kjv@2Chronicles:33:7 @ And he set a carved image, the idol which he had made, in the house of God, of which God had said to David and to Solomon his son, In this house, and in Jerusalem, which I have chosen before all the tribes of Israel, will I put my name for ever:

kjv@2Chronicles:33:8 @ Neither will I any more remove the foot of Israel from out of the land which I have appointed for your fathers; so that they will take heed to do all that I have commanded them, according to the whole law and the statutes and the ordinances by the hand of Moses.

kjv@2Chronicles:33:9 @ So Manasseh made Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem to err, and to do worse than the heathen, whom the LORD had destroyed before the children of Israel.

kjv@2Chronicles:33:10 @ And the LORD spake to Manasseh, and to his people: but they would not hearken.

kjv@2Chronicles:33:11 @ Wherefore the LORD brought upon them the captains of the host of the king of Assyria, which took Manasseh among the thorns, and bound him with fetters, and carried him to Babylon.

kjv@2Chronicles:33:12 @ And when he was in affliction, he besought the LORD his God, and humbled himself greatly before the God of his fathers,

kjv@2Chronicles:33:13 @ And prayed unto him: and he was intreated of him, and heard his supplication, and brought him again to Jerusalem into his kingdom. Then Manasseh knew that the LORD he was God.

kjv@2Chronicles:33:14 @ Now after this he built a wall without the city of David, on the west side of Gihon, in the valley, even to the entering in at the fish gate, and compassed about Ophel, and raised it up a very great height, and put captains of war in all the fenced cities of Judah.

kjv@2Chronicles:33:15 @ And he took away the strange gods, and the idol out of the house of the LORD, and all the altars that he had built in the mount of the house of the LORD, and in Jerusalem, and cast them out of the city.

kjv@2Chronicles:33:16 @ And he repaired the altar of the LORD, and sacrificed thereon peace offerings and thank offerings, and commanded Judah to serve the LORD God of Israel.

kjv@2Chronicles:33:17 @ Nevertheless the people did sacrifice still in the high places, yet unto the LORD their God only.

kjv@2Chronicles:33:18 @ Now the rest of the acts of Manasseh, and his prayer unto his God, and the words of the seers that spake to him in the name of the LORD God of Israel, behold, they are written in the book of the kings of Israel.

kjv@2Chronicles:33:19 @ His prayer also, and how God was intreated of him, and all his sin, and his trespass, and the places wherein he built high places, and set up groves and graven images, before he was humbled: behold, they are written among the sayings of the seers.

kjv@2Chronicles:33:20 @ So Manasseh slept with his fathers, and they buried him in his own house: and Amon his son reigned in his stead.

kjv@2Chronicles:33:21 @ Amon was two and twenty years old when he began to reign, and reigned two years in Jerusalem.

kjv@2Chronicles:33:22 @ But he did that which was evil in the sight of the LORD, as did Manasseh his father: for Amon sacrificed unto all the carved images which Manasseh his father had made, and served them;

kjv@2Chronicles:33:23 @ And humbled not himself before the LORD, as Manasseh his father had humbled himself; but Amon trespassed more and more.

kjv@2Chronicles:33:24 @ And his servants conspired against him, and slew him in his own house.

kjv@2Chronicles:33:25 @ But the people of the land slew all them that had conspired against king Amon; and the people of the land made Josiah his son king in his stead.

kjv@2Chronicles:34:1 @ Josiah was eight years old when he began to reign, and he reigned in Jerusalem one and thirty years.

kjv@2Chronicles:34:2 @ And he did that which was right in the sight of the LORD, and walked in the ways of David his father, and declined neither to the right hand, nor to the left.

kjv@2Chronicles:34:3 @ For in the eighth year of his reign, while he was yet young, he began to seek after the God of David his father: and in the twelfth year he began to purge Judah and Jerusalem from the high places, and the groves, and the carved images, and the molten images.

kjv@2Chronicles:34:4 @ And they brake down the altars of Baalim in his presence; and the images, that were on high above them, he cut down; and the groves, and the carved images, and the molten images, he brake in pieces, and made dust of them, and strowed it upon the graves of them that had sacrificed unto them.

kjv@2Chronicles:34:5 @ And he burnt the bones of the priests upon their altars, and cleansed Judah and Jerusalem.

kjv@2Chronicles:34:6 @ And so did he in the cities of Manasseh, and Ephraim, and Simeon, even unto Naphtali, with their mattocks round about.

kjv@2Chronicles:34:7 @ And when he had broken down the altars and the groves, and had beaten the graven images into powder, and cut down all the idols throughout all the land of Israel, he returned to Jerusalem.

kjv@2Chronicles:34:8 @ Now in the eighteenth year of his reign, when he had purged the land, and the house, he sent Shaphan the son of Azaliah, and Maaseiah the governor of the city, and Joah the son of Joahaz the recorder, to repair the house of the LORD his God.

kjv@2Chronicles:34:9 @ And when they came to Hilkiah the high priest, they delivered the money that was brought into the house of God, which the Levites that kept the doors had gathered of the hand of Manasseh and Ephraim, and of all the remnant of Israel, and of all Judah and Benjamin; and they returned to Jerusalem.

kjv@2Chronicles:34:10 @ And they put it in the hand of the workmen that had the oversight of the house of the LORD, and they gave it to the workmen that wrought in the house of the LORD, to repair and amend the house:

kjv@2Chronicles:34:11 @ Even to the artificers and builders gave they it, to buy hewn stone, and timber for couplings, and to floor the houses which the kings of Judah had destroyed.

kjv@2Chronicles:34:12 @ And the men did the work faithfully: and the overseers of them were Jahath and Obadiah, the Levites, of the sons of Merari; and Zechariah and Meshullam, of the sons of the Kohathites, to set it forward; and other of the Levites, all that could skill of instruments of musick.

kjv@2Chronicles:34:13 @ Also they were over the bearers of burdens, and were overseers of all that wrought the work in any manner of service: and of the Levites there were scribes, and officers, and porters.

kjv@2Chronicles:34:14 @ And when they brought out the money that was brought into the house of the LORD, Hilkiah the priest found a book of the law of the LORD given by Moses.

kjv@2Chronicles:34:15 @ And Hilkiah answered and said to Shaphan the scribe, I have found the book of the law in the house of the LORD. And Hilkiah delivered the book to Shaphan.

kjv@2Chronicles:34:16 @ And Shaphan carried the book to the king, and brought the king word back again, saying, All that was committed to thy servants, they do it.

kjv@2Chronicles:34:17 @ And they have gathered together the money that was found in the house of the LORD, and have delivered it into the hand of the overseers, and to the hand of the workmen.

kjv@2Chronicles:34:18 @ Then Shaphan the scribe told the king, saying, Hilkiah the priest hath given me a book. And Shaphan read it before the king.

kjv@2Chronicles:34:19 @ And it came to pass, when the king had heard the words of the law, that he rent his clothes.

kjv@2Chronicles:34:20 @ And the king commanded Hilkiah, and Ahikam the son of Shaphan, and Abdon the son of Micah, and Shaphan the scribe, and Asaiah a servant of the king's, saying,

kjv@2Chronicles:34:21 @ Go, enquire of the LORD for me, and for them that are left in Israel and in Judah, concerning the words of the book that is found: for great is the wrath of the LORD that is poured out upon us, because our fathers have not kept the word of the LORD, to do after all that is written in this book.

kjv@2Chronicles:34:22 @ And Hilkiah, and they that the king had appointed, went to Huldah the prophetess, the wife of Shallum the son of Tikvath, the son of Hasrah, keeper of the wardrobe; (now she dwelt in Jerusalem in the college:) and they spake to her to that effect.

kjv@2Chronicles:34:23 @ And she answered them, Thus saith the LORD God of Israel, Tell ye the man that sent you to me,

kjv@2Chronicles:34:24 @ Thus saith the LORD, Behold, I will bring evil upon this place, and upon the inhabitants thereof, even all the curses that are written in the book which they have read before the king of Judah:

kjv@2Chronicles:34:25 @ Because they have forsaken me, and have burned incense unto other gods, that they might provoke me to anger with all the works of their hands; therefore my wrath shall be poured out upon this place, and shall not be quenched.

kjv@2Chronicles:34:26 @ And as for the king of Judah, who sent you to enquire of the LORD, so shall ye say unto him, Thus saith the LORD God of Israel concerning the words which thou hast heard;

kjv@2Chronicles:34:27 @ Because thine heart was tender, and thou didst humble thyself before God, when thou heardest his words against this place, and against the inhabitants thereof, and humbledst thyself before me, and didst rend thy clothes, and weep before me; I have even heard thee also, saith the LORD.

kjv@2Chronicles:34:28 @ Behold, I will gather thee to thy fathers, and thou shalt be gathered to thy grave in peace, neither shall thine eyes see all the evil that I will bring upon this place, and upon the inhabitants of the same. So they brought the king word again.

kjv@2Chronicles:34:29 @ Then the king sent and gathered together all the elders of Judah and Jerusalem.

kjv@2Chronicles:34:30 @ And the king went up into the house of the LORD, and all the men of Judah, and the inhabitants of Jerusalem, and the priests, and the Levites, and all the people, great and small: and he read in their ears all the words of the book of the covenant that was found in the house of the LORD.

kjv@2Chronicles:34:31 @ And the king stood in his place, and made a covenant before the LORD, to walk after the LORD, and to keep his commandments, and his testimonies, and his statutes, with all his heart, and with all his soul, to perform the words of the covenant which are written in this book.

kjv@2Chronicles:34:32 @ And he caused all that were present in Jerusalem and Benjamin to stand to it. And the inhabitants of Jerusalem did according to the covenant of God, the God of their fathers.

kjv@2Chronicles:34:33 @ And Josiah took away all the abominations out of all the countries that pertained to the children of Israel, and made all that were present in Israel to serve, even to serve the LORD their God. And all his days they departed not from following the LORD, the God of their fathers.

kjv@2Chronicles:35:1 @ Moreover Josiah kept a passover unto the LORD in Jerusalem: and they killed the passover on the fourteenth day of the first month.

kjv@2Chronicles:35:2 @ And he set the priests in their charges, and encouraged them to the service of the house of the LORD,

kjv@2Chronicles:35:3 @ And said unto the Levites that taught all Israel, which were holy unto the LORD, Put the holy ark in the house which Solomon the son of David king of Israel did build; it shall not be a burden upon your shoulders: serve now the LORD your God, and his people Israel,

kjv@2Chronicles:35:4 @ And prepare yourselves by the houses of your fathers, after your courses, according to the writing of David king of Israel, and according to the writing of Solomon his son.

kjv@2Chronicles:35:5 @ And stand in the holy place according to the divisions of the families of the fathers of your brethren the people, and after the division of the families of the Levites.

kjv@2Chronicles:35:6 @ So kill the passover, and sanctify yourselves, and prepare your brethren, that they may do according to the word of the LORD by the hand of Moses.

kjv@2Chronicles:35:7 @ And Josiah gave to the people, of the flock, lambs and kids, all for the passover offerings, for all that were present, to the number of thirty thousand, and three thousand bullocks: these were of the king's substance.

kjv@2Chronicles:35:8 @ And his princes gave willingly unto the people, to the priests, and to the Levites: Hilkiah and Zechariah and Jehiel, rulers of the house of God, gave unto the priests for the passover offerings two thousand and six hundred small cattle, and three hundred oxen.

kjv@2Chronicles:35:9 @ Conaniah also, and Shemaiah and Nethaneel, his brethren, and Hashabiah and Jeiel and Jozabad, chief of the Levites, gave unto the Levites for passover offerings five thousand small cattle, and five hundred oxen.

kjv@2Chronicles:35:10 @ So the service was prepared, and the priests stood in their place, and the Levites in their courses, according to the king's commandment.

kjv@2Chronicles:35:11 @ And they killed the passover, and the priests sprinkled the blood from their hands, and the Levites flayed them.

kjv@2Chronicles:35:12 @ And they removed the burnt offerings, that they might give according to the divisions of the families of the people, to offer unto the LORD, as it is written in the book of Moses. And so did they with the oxen.

kjv@2Chronicles:35:13 @ And they roasted the passover with fire according to the ordinance: but the other holy offerings sod they in pots, and in caldrons, and in pans, and divided them speedily among all the people.

kjv@2Chronicles:35:14 @ And afterward they made ready for themselves, and for the priests: because the priests the sons of Aaron were busied in offering of burnt offerings and the fat until night; therefore the Levites prepared for themselves, and for the priests the sons of Aaron.

kjv@2Chronicles:35:15 @ And the singers the sons of Asaph were in their place, according to the commandment of David, and Asaph, and Heman, and Jeduthun the king's seer; and the porters waited at every gate; they might not depart from their service; for their brethren the Levites prepared for them.

kjv@2Chronicles:35:16 @ So all the service of the LORD was prepared the same day, to keep the passover, and to offer burnt offerings upon the altar of the LORD, according to the commandment of king Josiah.

kjv@2Chronicles:35:17 @ And the children of Israel that were present kept the passover at that time, and the feast of unleavened bread seven days.

kjv@2Chronicles:35:18 @ And there was no passover like to that kept in Israel from the days of Samuel the prophet; neither did all the kings of Israel keep such a passover as Josiah kept, and the priests, and the Levites, and all Judah and Israel that were present, and the inhabitants of Jerusalem.

kjv@2Chronicles:35:19 @ In the eighteenth year of the reign of Josiah was this passover kept.

kjv@2Chronicles:35:20 @ After all this, when Josiah had prepared the temple, Necho king of Egypt came up to fight against Carchemish by Euphrates: and Josiah went out against him.

kjv@2Chronicles:35:21 @ But he sent ambassadors to him, saying, What have I to do with thee, thou king of Judah? I come not against thee this day, but against the house wherewith I have war: for God commanded me to make haste: forbear thee from meddling with God, who is with me, that he destroy thee not.

kjv@2Chronicles:35:22 @ Nevertheless Josiah would not turn his face from him, but disguised himself, that he might fight with him, and hearkened not unto the words of Necho from the mouth of God, and came to fight in the valley of Megiddo.

kjv@2Chronicles:35:24 @ His servants therefore took him out of that chariot, and put him in the second chariot that he had; and they brought him to Jerusalem, and he died, and was buried in one of the sepulchres of his fathers. And all Judah and Jerusalem mourned for Josiah.

kjv@2Chronicles:35:25 @ And Jeremiah lamented for Josiah: and all the singing men and the singing women spake of Josiah in their lamentations to this day, and made them an ordinance in Israel: and, behold, they are written in the lamentations.

kjv@Ezra:3:11 @ And they sang together by course in praising and giving thanks unto the LORD; because he is good, for his mercy endureth for ever toward Israel. And all the people shouted with a great shout, when they praised the LORD, because the foundation of the house of the LORD was laid.

kjv@Ezra:3:12 @ But many of the priests and Levites and chief of the fathers, who were ancient men, that had seen the first house, when the foundation of this house was laid before their eyes, wept with a loud voice; and many shouted aloud for joy:

kjv@Ezra:3:13 @ So that the people could not discern the noise of the shout of joy from the noise of the weeping of the people: for the people shouted with a loud shout, and the noise was heard afar off.

kjv@Ezra:4:1 @ Now when the adversaries of Judah and Benjamin heard that the children of the captivity builded the temple unto the LORD God of Israel;

kjv@Ezra:4:2 @ Then they came to Zerubbabel, and to the chief of the fathers, and said unto them, Let us build with you: for we seek your God, as ye do; and we do sacrifice unto him since the days of Esarhaddon king of Assur, which brought us up hither.

kjv@Ezra:4:3 @ But Zerubbabel, and Jeshua, and the rest of the chief of the fathers of Israel, said unto them, Ye have nothing to do with us to build an house unto our God; but we ourselves together will build unto the LORD God of Israel, as king Cyrus the king of Persia hath commanded us.

kjv@Ezra:4:4 @ Then the people of the land weakened the hands of the people of Judah, and troubled them in building,

kjv@Ezra:4:5 @ And hired counsellors against them, to frustrate their purpose, all the days of Cyrus king of Persia, even until the reign of Darius king of Persia.

kjv@Ezra:4:6 @ And in the reign of Ahasuerus, in the beginning of his reign, wrote they unto him an accusation against the inhabitants of Judah and Jerusalem.

kjv@Ezra:4:7 @ And in the days of Artaxerxes wrote Bishlam, Mithredath, Tabeel, and the rest of their companions, unto Artaxerxes king of Persia; and the writing of the letter was written in the Syrian tongue, and interpreted in the Syrian tongue.

kjv@Ezra:4:8 @ Rehum the chancellor and Shimshai the scribe wrote a letter against Jerusalem to Artaxerxes the king in this sort:

kjv@Ezra:4:10 @ And the rest of the nations whom the great and noble Asnappar brought over, and set in the cities of Samaria, and the rest that are on this side the river, and at such a time.

kjv@Ezra:4:11 @ This is the copy of the letter that they sent unto him, even unto Artaxerxes the king; Thy servants the men on this side the river, and at such a time.

kjv@Ezra:4:12 @ Be it known unto the king, that the Jews which came up from thee to us are come unto Jerusalem, building the rebellious and the bad city, and have set up the walls thereof, and joined the foundations.

kjv@Ezra:4:13 @ Be it known now unto the king, that, if this city be builded, and the walls set up again, then will they not pay toll, tribute, and custom, and so thou shalt endamage the revenue of the kings.

kjv@Ezra:4:14 @ Now because we have maintenance from the king's palace, and it was not meet for us to see the king's dishonour, therefore have we sent and certified the king;

kjv@Ezra:4:15 @ That search may be made in the book of the records of thy fathers: so shalt thou find in the book of the records, and know that this city is a rebellious city, and hurtful unto kings and provinces, and that they have moved sedition within the same of old time: for which cause was this city destroyed.

kjv@Ezra:4:16 @ We certify the king that, if this city be builded again, and the walls thereof set up, by this means thou shalt have no portion on this side the river.

kjv@Ezra:4:17 @ Then sent the king an answer unto Rehum the chancellor, and to Shimshai the scribe, and to the rest of their companions that dwell in Samaria, and unto the rest beyond the river, Peace, and at such a time.

kjv@Ezra:4:18 @ The letter which ye sent unto us hath been plainly read before me.

kjv@Ezra:4:19 @ And I commanded, and search hath been made, and it is found that this city of old time hath made insurrection against kings, and that rebellion and sedition have been made therein.

kjv@Ezra:4:20 @ There have been mighty kings also over Jerusalem, which have ruled over all countries beyond the river; and toll, tribute, and custom, was paid unto them.

kjv@Ezra:4:21 @ Give ye now commandment to cause these men to cease, and that this city be not builded, until another commandment shall be given from me.

kjv@Ezra:4:22 @ Take heed now that ye fail not to do this: why should damage grow to the hurt of the kings?

kjv@Ezra:4:23 @ Now when the copy of king Artaxerxes' letter was read before Rehum, and Shimshai the scribe, and their companions, they went up in haste to Jerusalem unto the Jews, and made them to cease by force and power.

kjv@Ezra:4:24 @ Then ceased the work of the house of God which is at Jerusalem. So it ceased unto the second year of the reign of Darius king of Persia.

kjv@Ezra:5:1 @ Then the prophets, Haggai the prophet, and Zechariah the son of Iddo, prophesied unto the Jews that were in Judah and Jerusalem in the name of the God of Israel, even unto them.

kjv@Ezra:5:2 @ Then rose up Zerubbabel the son of Shealtiel, and Jeshua the son of Jozadak, and began to build the house of God which is at Jerusalem: and with them were the prophets of God helping them.

kjv@Ezra:5:3 @ At the same time came to them Tatnai, governor on this side the river, and Shetharboznai, and their companions, and said thus unto them, Who hath commanded you to build this house, and to make up this wall?

kjv@Ezra:5:4 @ Then said we unto them after this manner, What are the names of the men that make this building?

kjv@Ezra:5:5 @ But the eye of their God was upon the elders of the Jews, that they could not cause them to cease, till the matter came to Darius: and then they returned answer by letter concerning this matter.

kjv@Ezra:5:6 @ The copy of the letter that Tatnai, governor on this side the river, and Shetharboznai, and his companions the Apharsachites, which were on this side the river, sent unto Darius the king:

kjv@Ezra:5:7 @ They sent a letter unto him, wherein was written thus; Unto Darius the king, all peace.

kjv@Ezra:5:8 @ Be it known unto the king, that we went into the province of Judea, to the house of the great God, which is builded with great stones, and timber is laid in the walls, and this work goeth fast on, and prospereth in their hands.

kjv@Ezra:5:9 @ Then asked we those elders, and said unto them thus, Who commanded you to build this house, and to make up these walls?

kjv@Ezra:5:10 @ We asked their names also, to certify thee, that we might write the names of the men that were the chief of them.

kjv@Ezra:5:11 @ And thus they returned us answer, saying, We are the servants of the God of heaven and earth, and build the house that was builded these many years ago, which a great king of Israel builded and set up.

kjv@Ezra:5:12 @ But after that our fathers had provoked the God of heaven unto wrath, he gave them into the hand of Nebuchadnezzar the king of Babylon, the Chaldean, who destroyed this house, and carried the people away into Babylon.

kjv@Ezra:5:13 @ But in the first year of Cyrus the king of Babylon the same king Cyrus made a decree to build this house of God.

kjv@Ezra:5:14 @ And the vessels also of gold and silver of the house of God, which Nebuchadnezzar took out of the temple that was in Jerusalem, and brought them into the temple of Babylon, those did Cyrus the king take out of the temple of Babylon, and they were delivered unto one, whose name was Sheshbazzar, whom he had made governor;

kjv@Ezra:5:15 @ And said unto him, Take these vessels, go, carry them into the temple that is in Jerusalem, and let the house of God be builded in his place.

kjv@Ezra:5:16 @ Then came the same Sheshbazzar, and laid the foundation of the house of God which is in Jerusalem: and since that time even until now hath it been in building, and yet it is not finished.

kjv@Ezra:5:17 @ Now therefore, if it seem good to the king, let there be search made in the king's treasure house, which is there at Babylon, whether it be so, that a decree was made of Cyrus the king to build this house of God at Jerusalem, and let the king send his pleasure to us concerning this matter.

kjv@Ezra:6:1 @ Then Darius the king made a decree, and search was made in the house of the rolls, where the treasures were laid up in Babylon.

kjv@Ezra:6:2 @ And there was found at Achmetha, in the palace that is in the province of the Medes, a roll, and therein was a record thus written:

kjv@Ezra:6:3 @ In the first year of Cyrus the king the same Cyrus the king made a decree concerning the house of God at Jerusalem, Let the house be builded, the place where they offered sacrifices, and let the foundations thereof be strongly laid; the height thereof threescore cubits, and the breadth thereof threescore cubits;

kjv@Ezra:6:4 @ With three rows of great stones, and a row of new timber: and let the expenses be given out of the king's house:

kjv@Ezra:6:5 @ And also let the golden and silver vessels of the house of God, which Nebuchadnezzar took forth out of the temple which is at Jerusalem, and brought unto Babylon, be restored, and brought again unto the temple which is at Jerusalem, every one to his place, and place them in the house of God.

kjv@Ezra:6:6 @ Now therefore, Tatnai, governor beyond the river, Shetharboznai, and your companions the Apharsachites, which are beyond the river, be ye far from thence:

kjv@Ezra:6:7 @ Let the work of this house of God alone; let the governor of the Jews and the elders of the Jews build this house of God in his place.

kjv@Ezra:6:8 @ Moreover I make a decree what ye shall do to the elders of these Jews for the building of this house of God: that of the king's goods, even of the tribute beyond the river, forthwith expenses be given unto these men, that they be not hindered.

kjv@Ezra:6:9 @ And that which they have need of, both young bullocks, and rams, and lambs, for the burnt offerings of the God of heaven, wheat, salt, wine, and oil, according to the appointment of the priests which are at Jerusalem, let it be given them day by day without fail:

kjv@Ezra:6:10 @ That they may offer sacrifices of sweet savours unto the God of heaven, and pray for the life of the king, and of his sons.

kjv@Ezra:6:11 @ Also I have made a decree, that whosoever shall alter this word, let timber be pulled down from his house, and being set up, let him be hanged thereon; and let his house be made a dunghill for this.

kjv@Ezra:6:12 @ And the God that hath caused his name to dwell there destroy all kings and people, that shall put to their hand to alter and to destroy this house of God which is at Jerusalem. I Darius have made a decree; let it be done with speed.

kjv@Ezra:6:13 @ Then Tatnai, governor on this side the river, Shetharboznai, and their companions, according to that which Darius the king had sent, so they did speedily.

kjv@Ezra:6:14 @ And the elders of the Jews builded, and they prospered through the prophesying of Haggai the prophet and Zechariah the son of Iddo. And they builded, and finished it, according to the commandment of the God of Israel, and according to the commandment of Cyrus, and Darius, and Artaxerxes king of Persia.

kjv@Ezra:6:15 @ And this house was finished on the third day of the month Adar, which was in the sixth year of the reign of Darius the king.

kjv@Ezra:6:16 @ And the children of Israel, the priests, and the Levites, and the rest of the children of the captivity, kept the dedication of this house of God with joy,

kjv@Ezra:6:17 @ And offered at the dedication of this house of God an hundred bullocks, two hundred rams, four hundred lambs; and for a sin offering for all Israel, twelve he goats, according to the number of the tribes of Israel.

kjv@Ezra:6:18 @ And they set the priests in their divisions, and the Levites in their courses, for the service of God, which is at Jerusalem; as it is written in the book of Moses.

kjv@Ezra:6:19 @ And the children of the captivity kept the passover upon the fourteenth day of the first month.

kjv@Ezra:6:20 @ For the priests and the Levites were purified together, all of them were pure, and killed the passover for all the children of the captivity, and for their brethren the priests, and for themselves.

kjv@Ezra:6:21 @ And the children of Israel, which were come again out of captivity, and all such as had separated themselves unto them from the filthiness of the heathen of the land, to seek the LORD God of Israel, did eat,

kjv@Ezra:6:22 @ And kept the feast of unleavened bread seven days with joy: for the LORD had made them joyful, and turned the heart of the king of Assyria unto them, to strengthen their hands in the work of the house of God, the God of Israel.

kjv@Ezra:8:14 @ Of the sons also of Bigvai; Uthai, and Zabbud, and with them seventy males.

kjv@Ezra:8:15 @ And I gathered them together to the river that runneth to Ahava; and there abode we in tents three days: and I viewed the people, and the priests, and found there none of the sons of Levi.

kjv@Ezra:8:16 @ Then sent I for Eliezer, for Ariel, for Shemaiah, and for Elnathan, and for Jarib, and for Elnathan, and for Nathan, and for Zechariah, and for Meshullam, chief men; also for Joiarib, and for Elnathan, men of understanding.

kjv@Ezra:8:17 @ And I sent them with commandment unto Iddo the chief at the place Casiphia, and I told them what they should say unto Iddo, and to his brethren the Nethinims, at the place Casiphia, that they should bring unto us ministers for the house of our God.

kjv@Ezra:8:18 @ And by the good hand of our God upon us they brought us a man of understanding, of the sons of Mahli, the son of Levi, the son of Israel; and Sherebiah, with his sons and his brethren, eighteen;

kjv@Ezra:8:19 @ And Hashabiah, and with him Jeshaiah of the sons of Merari, his brethren and their sons, twenty;

kjv@Ezra:8:20 @ Also of the Nethinims, whom David and the princes had appointed for the service of the Levites, two hundred and twenty Nethinims: all of them were expressed by name.

kjv@Ezra:8:21 @ Then I proclaimed a fast there, at the river of Ahava, that we might afflict ourselves before our God, to seek of him a right way for us, and for our little ones, and for all our substance.

kjv@Ezra:8:22 @ For I was ashamed to require of the king a band of soldiers and horsemen to help us against the enemy in the way: because we had spoken unto the king, saying, The hand of our God is upon all them for good that seek him; but his power and his wrath is against all them that forsake him.

kjv@Ezra:8:23 @ So we fasted and besought our God for this: and he was intreated of us.

kjv@Ezra:8:24 @ Then I separated twelve of the chief of the priests, Sherebiah, Hashabiah, and ten of their brethren with them,

kjv@Ezra:8:25 @ And weighed unto them the silver, and the gold, and the vessels, even the offering of the house of our God, which the king, and his counsellors, and his lords, and all Israel there present, had offered:

kjv@Ezra:8:26 @ I even weighed unto their hand six hundred and fifty talents of silver, and silver vessels an hundred talents, and of gold an hundred talents;

kjv@Ezra:8:27 @ Also twenty basons of gold, of a thousand drams; and two vessels of fine copper, precious as gold.

kjv@Ezra:8:28 @ And I said unto them, Ye are holy unto the LORD; the vessels are holy also; and the silver and the gold are a freewill offering unto the LORD God of your fathers.

kjv@Ezra:8:29 @ Watch ye, and keep them, until ye weigh them before the chief of the priests and the Levites, and chief of the fathers of Israel, at Jerusalem, in the chambers of the house of the LORD.

kjv@Ezra:8:30 @ So took the priests and the Levites the weight of the silver, and the gold, and the vessels, to bring them to Jerusalem unto the house of our God.

kjv@Ezra:8:31 @ Then we departed from the river of Ahava on the twelfth day of the first month, to go unto Jerusalem: and the hand of our God was upon us, and he delivered us from the hand of the enemy, and of such as lay in wait by the way.

kjv@Ezra:8:32 @ And we came to Jerusalem, and abode there three days.

kjv@Ezra:8:33 @ Now on the fourth day was the silver and the gold and the vessels weighed in the house of our God by the hand of Meremoth the son of Uriah the priest; and with him was Eleazar the son of Phinehas; and with them was Jozabad the son of Jeshua, and Noadiah the son of Binnui, Levites;

kjv@Ezra:8:34 @ By number and by weight of every one: and all the weight was written at that time.

kjv@Ezra:8:35 @ Also the children of those that had been carried away, which were come out of the captivity, offered burnt offerings unto the God of Israel, twelve bullocks for all Israel, ninety and six rams, seventy and seven lambs, twelve he goats for a sin offering: all this was a burnt offering unto the LORD.

kjv@Ezra:8:36 @ And they delivered the king's commissions unto the king's lieutenants, and to the governors on this side the river: and they furthered the people, and the house of God.

kjv@Ezra:9:1 @ Now when these things were done, the princes came to me, saying, The people of Israel, and the priests, and the Levites, have not separated themselves from the people of the lands, doing according to their abominations, even of the Canaanites, the Hittites, the Perizzites, the Jebusites, the Ammonites, the Moabites, the Egyptians, and the Amorites.

kjv@Ezra:9:2 @ For they have taken of their daughters for themselves, and for their sons: so that the holy seed have mingled themselves with the people of those lands: yea, the hand of the princes and rulers hath been chief in this trespass.

kjv@Ezra:9:3 @ And when I heard this thing, I rent my garment and my mantle, and plucked off the hair of my head and of my beard, and sat down astonied.

kjv@Ezra:9:4 @ Then were assembled unto me every one that trembled at the words of the God of Israel, because of the transgression of those that had been carried away; and I sat astonied until the evening sacrifice.

kjv@Ezra:9:5 @ And at the evening sacrifice I arose up from my heaviness; and having rent my garment and my mantle, I fell upon my knees, and spread out my hands unto the LORD my God,

kjv@Ezra:9:6 @ And said, O my God, I am ashamed and blush to lift up my face to thee, my God: for our iniquities are increased over our head, and our trespass is grown up unto the heavens.

kjv@Ezra:9:7 @ Since the days of our fathers have we been in a great trespass unto this day; and for our iniquities have we, our kings, and our priests, been delivered into the hand of the kings of the lands, to the sword, to captivity, and to a spoil, and to confusion of face, as it is this day.

kjv@Ezra:9:8 @ And now for a little space grace hath been shewed from the LORD our God, to leave us a remnant to escape, and to give us a nail in his holy place, that our God may lighten our eyes, and give us a little reviving in our bondage.

kjv@Ezra:9:9 @ For we were bondmen; yet our God hath not forsaken us in our bondage, but hath extended mercy unto us in the sight of the kings of Persia, to give us a reviving, to set up the house of our God, and to repair the desolations thereof, and to give us a wall in Judah and in Jerusalem.

kjv@Ezra:9:10 @ And now, O our God, what shall we say after this? for we have forsaken thy commandments,

kjv@Ezra:9:11 @ Which thou hast commanded by thy servants the prophets, saying, The land, unto which ye go to possess it, is an unclean land with the filthiness of the people of the lands, with their abominations, which have filled it from one end to another with their uncleanness.

kjv@Ezra:9:12 @ Now therefore give not your daughters unto their sons, neither take their daughters unto your sons, nor seek their peace or their wealth for ever: that ye may be strong, and eat the good of the land, and leave it for an inheritance to your children for ever.

kjv@Ezra:9:13 @ And after all that is come upon us for our evil deeds, and for our great trespass, seeing that thou our God hast punished us less than our iniquities deserve, and hast given us such deliverance as this;

kjv@Ezra:9:14 @ Should we again break thy commandments, and join in affinity with the people of these abominations? wouldest not thou be angry with us till thou hadst consumed us, so that there should be no remnant nor escaping?

kjv@Ezra:9:15 @ O LORD God of Israel, thou art righteous: for we remain yet escaped, as it is this day: behold, we are before thee in our trespasses: for we cannot stand before thee because of this.

kjv@Ezra:10:1 @ Now when Ezra had prayed, and when he had confessed, weeping and casting himself down before the house of God, there assembled unto him out of Israel a very great congregation of men and women and children: for the people wept very sore.

kjv@Ezra:10:2 @ And Shechaniah the son of Jehiel, one of the sons of Elam, answered and said unto Ezra, We have trespassed against our God, and have taken strange wives of the people of the land: yet now there is hope in Israel concerning this thing.

kjv@Ezra:10:3 @ Now therefore let us make a covenant with our God to put away all the wives, and such as are born of them, according to the counsel of my lord, and of those that tremble at the commandment of our God; and let it be done according to the law.

kjv@Ezra:10:4 @ Arise; for this matter belongeth unto thee: we also will be with thee: be of good courage, and do it.

kjv@Ezra:10:5 @ Then arose Ezra, and made the chief priests, the Levites, and all Israel, to swear that they should do according to this word. And they sware.

kjv@Ezra:10:6 @ Then Ezra rose up from before the house of God, and went into the chamber of Johanan the son of Eliashib: and when he came thither, he did eat no bread, nor drink water: for he mourned because of the transgression of them that had been carried away.

kjv@Ezra:10:7 @ And they made proclamation throughout Judah and Jerusalem unto all the children of the captivity, that they should gather themselves together unto Jerusalem;

kjv@Ezra:10:8 @ And that whosoever would not come within three days, according to the counsel of the princes and the elders, all his substance should be forfeited, and himself separated from the congregation of those that had been carried away.

kjv@Ezra:10:9 @ Then all the men of Judah and Benjamin gathered themselves together unto Jerusalem within three days. It was the ninth month, on the twentieth day of the month; and all the people sat in the street of the house of God, trembling because of this matter, and for the great rain.

kjv@Ezra:10:10 @ And Ezra the priest stood up, and said unto them, Ye have transgressed, and have taken strange wives, to increase the trespass of Israel.

kjv@Ezra:10:11 @ Now therefore make confession unto the LORD God of your fathers, and do his pleasure: and separate yourselves from the people of the land, and from the strange wives.

kjv@Ezra:10:12 @ Then all the congregation answered and said with a loud voice, As thou hast said, so must we do.

kjv@Ezra:10:13 @ But the people are many, and it is a time of much rain, and we are not able to stand without, neither is this a work of one day or two: for we are many that have transgressed in this thing.

kjv@Ezra:10:14 @ Let now our rulers of all the congregation stand, and let all them which have taken strange wives in our cities come at appointed times, and with them the elders of every city, and the judges thereof, until the fierce wrath of our God for this matter be turned from us.

kjv@Ezra:10:15 @ Only Jonathan the son of Asahel and Jahaziah the son of Tikvah were employed about this matter: and Meshullam and Shabbethai the Levite helped them.

kjv@Ezra:10:16 @ And the children of the captivity did so. And Ezra the priest, with certain chief of the fathers, after the house of their fathers, and all of them by their names, were separated, and sat down in the first day of the tenth month to examine the matter.

kjv@Ezra:10:17 @ And they made an end with all the men that had taken strange wives by the first day of the first month.

kjv@Ezra:10:18 @ And among the sons of the priests there were found that had taken strange wives: namely, of the sons of Jeshua the son of Jozadak, and his brethren; Maaseiah, and Eliezer, and Jarib, and Gedaliah.

kjv@Ezra:10:19 @ And they gave their hands that they would put away their wives; and being guilty, they offered a ram of the flock for their trespass.

kjv@Ezra:10:20 @ And of the sons of Immer; Hanani, and Zebadiah.

kjv@Nehemiah:1:1 @ The words of Nehemiah the son of Hachaliah. And it came to pass in the month Chisleu, in the twentieth year, as I was in Shushan the palace,

kjv@Nehemiah:1:2 @ That Hanani, one of my brethren, came, he and certain men of Judah; and I asked them concerning the Jews that had escaped, which were left of the captivity, and concerning Jerusalem.

kjv@Nehemiah:1:3 @ And they said unto me, The remnant that are left of the captivity there in the province are in great affliction and reproach: the wall of Jerusalem also is broken down, and the gates thereof are burned with fire.

kjv@Nehemiah:1:4 @ And it came to pass, when I heard these words, that I sat down and wept, and mourned certain days, and fasted, and prayed before the God of heaven,

kjv@Nehemiah:1:5 @ And said, I beseech thee, O LORD God of heaven, the great and terrible God, that keepeth covenant and mercy for them that love him and observe his commandments:

kjv@Nehemiah:1:6 @ Let thine ear now be attentive, and thine eyes open, that thou mayest hear the prayer of thy servant, which I pray before thee now, day and night, for the children of Israel thy servants, and confess the sins of the children of Israel, which we have sinned against thee: both I and my father's house have sinned.

kjv@Nehemiah:1:7 @ We have dealt very corruptly against thee, and have not kept the commandments, nor the statutes, nor the judgments, which thou commandedst thy servant Moses.

kjv@Nehemiah:1:8 @ Remember, I beseech thee, the word that thou commandedst thy servant Moses, saying, If ye transgress, I will scatter you abroad among the nations:

kjv@Nehemiah:1:9 @ But if ye turn unto me, and keep my commandments, and do them; though there were of you cast out unto the uttermost part of the heaven, yet will I gather them from thence, and will bring them unto the place that I have chosen to set my name there.

kjv@Nehemiah:1:10 @ Now these are thy servants and thy people, whom thou hast redeemed by thy great power, and by thy strong hand.

kjv@Nehemiah:1:11 @ O Lord, I beseech thee, let now thine ear be attentive to the prayer of thy servant, and to the prayer of thy servants, who desire to fear thy name: and prosper, I pray thee, thy servant this day, and grant him mercy in the sight of this man. For I was the king's cupbearer.

kjv@Nehemiah:2:1 @ And it came to pass in the month Nisan, in the twentieth year of Artaxerxes the king, that wine was before him: and I took up the wine, and gave it unto the king. Now I had not been beforetime sad in his presence.

kjv@Nehemiah:2:2 @ Wherefore the king said unto me, Why is thy countenance sad, seeing thou art not sick? this is nothing else but sorrow of heart. Then I was very sore afraid,

kjv@Nehemiah:2:3 @ And said unto the king, Let the king live for ever: why should not my countenance be sad, when the city, the place of my fathers' sepulchres, lieth waste, and the gates thereof are consumed with fire?

kjv@Nehemiah:2:4 @ Then the king said unto me, For what dost thou make request? So I prayed to the God of heaven.

kjv@Nehemiah:2:5 @ And I said unto the king, If it please the king, and if thy servant have found favour in thy sight, that thou wouldest send me unto Judah, unto the city of my fathers' sepulchres, that I may build it.

kjv@Nehemiah:2:6 @ And the king said unto me, (the queen also sitting by him,) For how long shall thy journey be? and when wilt thou return? So it pleased the king to send me; and I set him a time.

kjv@Nehemiah:2:7 @ Moreover I said unto the king, If it please the king, let letters be given me to the governors beyond the river, that they may convey me over till I come into Judah;

kjv@Nehemiah:2:9 @ Then I came to the governors beyond the river, and gave them the king's letters. Now the king had sent captains of the army and horsemen with me.

kjv@Nehemiah:2:10 @ When Sanballat the Horonite, and Tobiah the servant, the Ammonite, heard of it, it grieved them exceedingly that there was come a man to seek the welfare of the children of Israel.

kjv@Nehemiah:2:11 @ So I came to Jerusalem, and was there three days.

kjv@Nehemiah:2:12 @ And I arose in the night, I and some few men with me; neither told I any man what my God had put in my heart to do at Jerusalem: neither was there any beast with me, save the beast that I rode upon.

kjv@Nehemiah:2:13 @ And I went out by night by the gate of the valley, even before the dragon well, and to the dung port, and viewed the walls of Jerusalem, which were broken down, and the gates thereof were consumed with fire.

kjv@Nehemiah:2:14 @ Then I went on to the gate of the fountain, and to the king's pool: but there was no place for the beast that was under me to pass.

kjv@Nehemiah:2:15 @ Then went I up in the night by the brook, and viewed the wall, and turned back, and entered by the gate of the valley, and so returned.

kjv@Nehemiah:2:16 @ And the rulers knew not whither I went, or what I did; neither had I as yet told it to the Jews, nor to the priests, nor to the nobles, nor to the rulers, nor to the rest that did the work.

kjv@Nehemiah:2:17 @ Then said I unto them, Ye see the distress that we are in, how Jerusalem lieth waste, and the gates thereof are burned with fire: come, and let us build up the wall of Jerusalem, that we be no more a reproach.

kjv@Nehemiah:2:18 @ Then I told them of the hand of my God which was good upon me; as also the king's words that he had spoken unto me. And they said, Let us rise up and build. So they strengthened their hands for this good work.

kjv@Nehemiah:2:19 @ But when Sanballat the Horonite, and Tobiah the servant, the Ammonite, and Geshem the Arabian, heard it, they laughed us to scorn, and despised us, and said, What is this thing that ye do? will ye rebel against the king?

kjv@Nehemiah:2:20 @ Then answered I them, and said unto them, The God of heaven, he will prosper us; therefore we his servants will arise and build: but ye have no portion, nor right, nor memorial, in Jerusalem.

kjv@Nehemiah:3:1 @ Then Eliashib the high priest rose up with his brethren the priests, and they builded the sheep gate; they sanctified it, and set up the doors of it; even unto the tower of Meah they sanctified it, unto the tower of Hananeel.

kjv@Nehemiah:4:6 @ So built we the wall; and all the wall was joined together unto the half thereof: for the people had a mind to work.

kjv@Nehemiah:4:7 @ But it came to pass, that when Sanballat, and Tobiah, and the Arabians, and the Ammonites, and the Ashdodites, heard that the walls of Jerusalem were made up, and that the breaches began to be stopped, then they were very wroth,

kjv@Nehemiah:4:8 @ And conspired all of them together to come and to fight against Jerusalem, and to hinder it.

kjv@Nehemiah:4:9 @ Nevertheless we made our prayer unto our God, and set a watch against them day and night, because of them.

kjv@Nehemiah:4:10 @ And Judah said, The strength of the bearers of burdens is decayed, and there is much rubbish; so that we are not able to build the wall.

kjv@Nehemiah:4:11 @ And our adversaries said, They shall not know, neither see, till we come in the midst among them, and slay them, and cause the work to cease.

kjv@Nehemiah:4:12 @ And it came to pass, that when the Jews which dwelt by them came, they said unto us ten times, From all places whence ye shall return unto us they will be upon you.

kjv@Nehemiah:4:13 @ Therefore set I in the lower places behind the wall, and on the higher places, I even set the people after their families with their swords, their spears, and their bows.

kjv@Nehemiah:4:14 @ And I looked, and rose up, and said unto the nobles, and to the rulers, and to the rest of the people, Be not ye afraid of them: remember the Lord, which is great and terrible, and fight for your brethren, your sons, and your daughters, your wives, and your houses.

kjv@Nehemiah:4:15 @ And it came to pass, when our enemies heard that it was known unto us, and God had brought their counsel to nought, that we returned all of us to the wall, every one unto his work.

kjv@Nehemiah:4:16 @ And it came to pass from that time forth, that the half of my servants wrought in the work, and the other half of them held both the spears, the shields, and the bows, and the habergeons; and the rulers were behind all the house of Judah.

kjv@Nehemiah:4:17 @ They which builded on the wall, and they that bare burdens, with those that laded, every one with one of his hands wrought in the work, and with the other hand held a weapon.

kjv@Nehemiah:4:18 @ For the builders, every one had his sword girded by his side, and so builded. And he that sounded the trumpet was by me.

kjv@Nehemiah:4:19 @ And I said unto the nobles, and to the rulers, and to the rest of the people, The work is great and large, and we are separated upon the wall, one far from another.

kjv@Nehemiah:4:20 @ In what place therefore ye hear the sound of the trumpet, resort ye thither unto us: our God shall fight for us.

kjv@Nehemiah:4:21 @ So we laboured in the work: and half of them held the spears from the rising of the morning till the stars appeared.

kjv@Nehemiah:4:22 @ Likewise at the same time said I unto the people, Let every one with his servant lodge within Jerusalem, that in the night they may be a guard to us, and labour on the day.

kjv@Nehemiah:4:23 @ So neither I, nor my brethren, nor my servants, nor the men of the guard which followed me, none of us put off our clothes, saving that every one put them off for washing.

kjv@Nehemiah:5:1 @ And there was a great cry of the people and of their wives against their brethren the Jews.

kjv@Nehemiah:5:2 @ For there were that said, We, our sons, and our daughters, are many: therefore we take up corn for them, that we may eat, and live.

kjv@Nehemiah:5:3 @ Some also there were that said, We have mortgaged our lands, vineyards, and houses, that we might buy corn, because of the dearth.

kjv@Nehemiah:5:4 @ There were also that said, We have borrowed money for the king's tribute, and that upon our lands and vineyards.

kjv@Nehemiah:5:5 @ Yet now our flesh is as the flesh of our brethren, our children as their children: and, lo, we bring into bondage our sons and our daughters to be servants, and some of our daughters are brought unto bondage already: neither is it in our power to redeem them; for other men have our lands and vineyards.

kjv@Nehemiah:5:6 @ And I was very angry when I heard their cry and these words.

kjv@Nehemiah:5:7 @ Then I consulted with myself, and I rebuked the nobles, and the rulers, and said unto them, Ye exact usury, every one of his brother. And I set a great assembly against them.

kjv@Nehemiah:5:8 @ And I said unto them, We after our ability have redeemed our brethren the Jews, which were sold unto the heathen; and will ye even sell your brethren? or shall they be sold unto us? Then held they their peace, and found nothing to answer.

kjv@Nehemiah:5:9 @ Also I said, It is not good that ye do: ought ye not to walk in the fear of our God because of the reproach of the heathen our enemies?

kjv@Nehemiah:5:10 @ I likewise, and my brethren, and my servants, might exact of them money and corn: I pray you, let us leave off this usury.

kjv@Nehemiah:5:11 @ Restore, I pray you, to them, even this day, their lands, their vineyards, their oliveyards, and their houses, also the hundredth part of the money, and of the corn, the wine, and the oil, that ye exact of them.

kjv@Nehemiah:5:12 @ Then said they, We will restore them, and will require nothing of them; so will we do as thou sayest. Then I called the priests, and took an oath of them, that they should do according to this promise.

kjv@Nehemiah:5:13 @ Also I shook my lap, and said, So God shake out every man from his house, and from his labour, that performeth not this promise, even thus be he shaken out, and emptied. And all the congregation said, Amen, and praised the LORD. And the people did according to this promise.

kjv@Nehemiah:5:14 @ Moreover from the time that I was appointed to be their governor in the land of Judah, from the twentieth year even unto the two and thirtieth year of Artaxerxes the king, that is, twelve years, I and my brethren have not eaten the bread of the governor.

kjv@Nehemiah:5:15 @ But the former governors that had been before me were chargeable unto the people, and had taken of them bread and wine, beside forty shekels of silver; yea, even their servants bare rule over the people: but so did not I, because of the fear of God.

kjv@Nehemiah:5:16 @ Yea, also I continued in the work of this wall, neither bought we any land: and all my servants were gathered thither unto the work.

kjv@Nehemiah:5:17 @ Moreover there were at my table an hundred and fifty of the Jews and rulers, beside those that came unto us from among the heathen that are about us.

kjv@Nehemiah:5:18 @ Now that which was prepared for me daily was one ox and six choice sheep; also fowls were prepared for me, and once in ten days store of all sorts of wine: yet for all this required not I the bread of the governor, because the bondage was heavy upon this people.

kjv@Nehemiah:5:19 @ Think upon me, my God, for good, according to all that I have done for this people.

kjv@Nehemiah:6:1 @ Now it came to pass, when Sanballat, and Tobiah, and Geshem the Arabian, and the rest of our enemies, heard that I had builded the wall, and that there was no breach left therein; (though at that time I had not set up the doors upon the gates;)

kjv@Nehemiah:6:2 @ That Sanballat and Geshem sent unto me, saying, Come, let us meet together in some one of the villages in the plain of Ono. But they thought to do me mischief.

kjv@Nehemiah:6:3 @ And I sent messengers unto them, saying, I am doing a great work, so that I cannot come down: why should the work cease, whilst I leave it, and come down to you?

kjv@Nehemiah:6:4 @ Yet they sent unto me four times after this sort; and I answered them after the same manner.

kjv@Nehemiah:6:5 @ Then sent Sanballat his servant unto me in like manner the fifth time with an open letter in his hand;

kjv@Nehemiah:6:6 @ Wherein was written, It is reported among the heathen, and Gashmu saith it, that thou and the Jews think to rebel: for which cause thou buildest the wall, that thou mayest be their king, according to these words.

kjv@Nehemiah:6:7 @ And thou hast also appointed prophets to preach of thee at Jerusalem, saying, There is a king in Judah: and now shall it be reported to the king according to these words. Come now therefore, and let us take counsel together.

kjv@Nehemiah:6:8 @ Then I sent unto him, saying, There are no such things done as thou sayest, but thou feignest them out of thine own heart.

kjv@Nehemiah:6:9 @ For they all made us afraid, saying, Their hands shall be weakened from the work, that it be not done. Now therefore, O God, strengthen my hands.

kjv@Nehemiah:6:10 @ Afterward I came unto the house of Shemaiah the son of Delaiah the son of Mehetabeel, who was shut up; and he said, Let us meet together in the house of God, within the temple, and let us shut the doors of the temple: for they will come to slay thee; yea, in the night will they come to slay thee.

kjv@Nehemiah:6:11 @ And I said, Should such a man as I flee? and who is there, that, being as I am, would go into the temple to save his life? I will not go in.

kjv@Nehemiah:6:12 @ And, lo, I perceived that God had not sent him; but that he pronounced this prophecy against me: for Tobiah and Sanballat had hired him.

kjv@Nehemiah:6:13 @ Therefore was he hired, that I should be afraid, and do so, and sin, and that they might have matter for an evil report, that they might reproach me.

kjv@Nehemiah:6:14 @ My God, think thou upon Tobiah and Sanballat according to these their works, and on the prophetess Noadiah, and the rest of the prophets, that would have put me in fear.

kjv@Nehemiah:6:15 @ So the wall was finished in the twenty and fifth day of the month Elul, in fifty and two days.

kjv@Nehemiah:6:16 @ And it came to pass, that when all our enemies heard thereof, and all the heathen that were about us saw these things, they were much cast down in their own eyes: for they perceived that this work was wrought of our God.

kjv@Nehemiah:6:17 @ Moreover in those days the nobles of Judah sent many letters unto Tobiah, and the letters of Tobiah came unto them.

kjv@Nehemiah:6:18 @ For there were many in Judah sworn unto him, because he was the son in law of Shechaniah the son of Arah; and his son Johanan had taken the daughter of Meshullam the son of Berechiah.

kjv@Nehemiah:6:19 @ Also they reported his good deeds before me, and uttered my words to him. And Tobiah sent letters to put me in fear.

kjv@Nehemiah:7:1 @ Now it came to pass, when the wall was built, and I had set up the doors, and the porters and the singers and the Levites were appointed,

kjv@Nehemiah:7:2 @ That I gave my brother Hanani, and Hananiah the ruler of the palace, charge over Jerusalem: for he was a faithful man, and feared God above many.

kjv@Nehemiah:7:3 @ And I said unto them, Let not the gates of Jerusalem be opened until the sun be hot; and while they stand by, let them shut the doors, and bar them: and appoint watches of the inhabitants of Jerusalem, every one in his watch, and every one to be over against his house.

kjv@Nehemiah:7:4 @ Now the city was large and great: but the people were few therein, and the houses were not builded.

kjv@Nehemiah:7:5 @ And my God put into mine heart to gather together the nobles, and the rulers, and the people, that they might be reckoned by genealogy. And I found a register of the genealogy of them which came up at the first, and found written therein,

kjv@Nehemiah:7:6 @ These are the children of the province, that went up out of the captivity, of those that had been carried away, whom Nebuchadnezzar the king of Babylon had carried away, and came again to Jerusalem and to Judah, every one unto his city;

kjv@Nehemiah:8:1 @ And all the people gathered themselves together as one man into the street that was before the water gate; and they spake unto Ezra the scribe to bring the book of the law of Moses, which the LORD had commanded to Israel.

kjv@Nehemiah:8:3 @ And he read therein before the street that was before the water gate from the morning until midday, before the men and the women, and those that could understand; and the ears of all the people were attentive unto the book of the law.

kjv@Nehemiah:8:6 @ And Ezra blessed the LORD, the great God. And all the people answered, Amen, Amen, with lifting up their hands: and they bowed their heads, and worshipped the LORD with their faces to the ground.

kjv@Nehemiah:8:8 @ So they read in the book in the law of God distinctly, and gave the sense, and caused them to understand the reading.

kjv@Nehemiah:8:9 @ And Nehemiah, which is the Tirshatha, and Ezra the priest the scribe, and the Levites that taught the people, said unto all the people, This day is holy unto the LORD your God; mourn not, nor weep. For all the people wept, when they heard the words of the law.

kjv@Nehemiah:8:10 @ Then he said unto them, Go your way, eat the fat, and drink the sweet, and send portions unto them for whom nothing is prepared: for this day is holy unto our Lord: neither be ye sorry; for the joy of the LORD is your strength.

kjv@Nehemiah:8:16 @ So the people went forth, and brought them, and made themselves booths, every one upon the roof of his house, and in their courts, and in the courts of the house of God, and in the street of the water gate, and in the street of the gate of Ephraim.

kjv@Nehemiah:8:17 @ And all the congregation of them that were come again out of the captivity made booths, and sat under the booths: for since the days of Jeshua the son of Nun unto that day had not the children of Israel done so. And there was very great gladness.

kjv@Nehemiah:8:18 @ Also day by day, from the first day unto the last day, he read in the book of the law of God. And they kept the feast seven days; and on the eighth day was a solemn assembly, according unto the manner.

kjv@Nehemiah:9:1 @ Now in the twenty and fourth day of this month the children of Israel were assembled with fasting, and with sackclothes, and earth upon them.

kjv@Nehemiah:9:2 @ And the seed of Israel separated themselves from all strangers, and stood and confessed their sins, and the iniquities of their fathers.

kjv@Nehemiah:9:3 @ And they stood up in their place, and read in the book of the law of the LORD their God one fourth part of the day; and another fourth part they confessed, and worshipped the LORD their God.

kjv@Nehemiah:9:4 @ Then stood up upon the stairs, of the Levites, Jeshua, and Bani, Kadmiel, Shebaniah, Bunni, Sherebiah, Bani, and Chenani, and cried with a loud voice unto the LORD their God.

kjv@Nehemiah:9:5 @ Then the Levites, Jeshua, and Kadmiel, Bani, Hashabniah, Sherebiah, Hodijah, Shebaniah, and Pethahiah, said, Stand up and bless the LORD your God for ever and ever: and blessed be thy glorious name, which is exalted above all blessing and praise.

kjv@Nehemiah:9:6 @ Thou, even thou, art LORD alone; thou hast made heaven, the heaven of heavens, with all their host, the earth, and all things that are therein, the seas, and all that is therein, and thou preservest them all; and the host of heaven worshippeth thee.

kjv@Nehemiah:9:7 @ Thou art the LORD the God, who didst choose Abram, and broughtest him forth out of Ur of the Chaldees, and gavest him the name of Abraham;

kjv@Nehemiah:9:8 @ And foundest his heart faithful before thee, and madest a covenant with him to give the land of the Canaanites, the Hittites, the Amorites, and the Perizzites, and the Jebusites, and the Girgashites, to give it, I say, to his seed, and hast performed thy words; for thou art righteous:

kjv@Nehemiah:9:9 @ And didst see the affliction of our fathers in Egypt, and heardest their cry by the Red sea;

kjv@Nehemiah:9:10 @ And shewedst signs and wonders upon Pharaoh, and on all his servants, and on all the people of his land: for thou knewest that they dealt proudly against them. So didst thou get thee a name, as it is this day.

kjv@Nehemiah:9:11 @ And thou didst divide the sea before them, so that they went through the midst of the sea on the dry land; and their persecutors thou threwest into the deeps, as a stone into the mighty waters.

kjv@Nehemiah:9:12 @ Moreover thou leddest them in the day by a cloudy pillar; and in the night by a pillar of fire, to give them light in the way wherein they should go.

kjv@Nehemiah:9:13 @ Thou camest down also upon mount Sinai, and spakest with them from heaven, and gavest them right judgments, and true laws, good statutes and commandments:

kjv@Nehemiah:9:14 @ And madest known unto them thy holy sabbath, and commandedst them precepts, statutes, and laws, by the hand of Moses thy servant:

kjv@Nehemiah:9:15 @ And gavest them bread from heaven for their hunger, and broughtest forth water for them out of the rock for their thirst, and promisedst them that they should go in to possess the land which thou hadst sworn to give them.

kjv@Nehemiah:9:16 @ But they and our fathers dealt proudly, and hardened their necks, and hearkened not to thy commandments,

kjv@Nehemiah:9:17 @ And refused to obey, neither were mindful of thy wonders that thou didst among them; but hardened their necks, and in their rebellion appointed a captain to return to their bondage: but thou art a God ready to pardon, gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness, and forsookest them not.

kjv@Nehemiah:9:18 @ Yea, when they had made them a molten calf, and said, This is thy God that brought thee up out of Egypt, and had wrought great provocations;

kjv@Nehemiah:9:19 @ Yet thou in thy manifold mercies forsookest them not in the wilderness: the pillar of the cloud departed not from them by day, to lead them in the way; neither the pillar of fire by night, to shew them light, and the way wherein they should go.

kjv@Nehemiah:9:20 @ Thou gavest also thy good spirit to instruct them, and withheldest not thy manna from their mouth, and gavest them water for their thirst.

kjv@Nehemiah:9:21 @ Yea, forty years didst thou sustain them in the wilderness, so that they lacked nothing; their clothes waxed not old, and their feet swelled not.

kjv@Nehemiah:9:22 @ Moreover thou gavest them kingdoms and nations, and didst divide them into corners: so they possessed the land of Sihon, and the land of the king of Heshbon, and the land of Og king of Bashan.

kjv@Nehemiah:9:23 @ Their children also multipliedst thou as the stars of heaven, and broughtest them into the land, concerning which thou hadst promised to their fathers, that they should go in to possess it.

kjv@Nehemiah:9:24 @ So the children went in and possessed the land, and thou subduedst before them the inhabitants of the land, the Canaanites, and gavest them into their hands, with their kings, and the people of the land, that they might do with them as they would.

kjv@Nehemiah:9:25 @ And they took strong cities, and a fat land, and possessed houses full of all goods, wells digged, vineyards, and oliveyards, and fruit trees in abundance: so they did eat, and were filled, and became fat, and delighted themselves in thy great goodness.

kjv@Nehemiah:9:26 @ Nevertheless they were disobedient, and rebelled against thee, and cast thy law behind their backs, and slew thy prophets which testified against them to turn them to thee, and they wrought great provocations.

kjv@Nehemiah:9:28 @ But after they had rest, they did evil again before thee: therefore leftest thou them in the hand of their enemies, so that they had the dominion over them: yet when they returned, and cried unto thee, thou heardest them from heaven; and many times didst thou deliver them according to thy mercies;

kjv@Nehemiah:9:29 @ And testifiedst against them, that thou mightest bring them again unto thy law: yet they dealt proudly, and hearkened not unto thy commandments, but sinned against thy judgments, (which if a man do, he shall live in them;) and withdrew the shoulder, and hardened their neck, and would not hear.

kjv@Nehemiah:9:30 @ Yet many years didst thou forbear them, and testifiedst against them by thy spirit in thy prophets: yet would they not give ear: therefore gavest thou them into the hand of the people of the lands.

kjv@Nehemiah:9:35 @ For they have not served thee in their kingdom, and in thy great goodness that thou gavest them, and in the large and fat land which thou gavest before them, neither turned they from their wicked works.

kjv@Nehemiah:13:4 @ And before this, Eliashib the priest, having the oversight of the chamber of the house of our God, was allied unto Tobiah:

kjv@Nehemiah:13:5 @ And he had prepared for him a great chamber, where aforetime they laid the meat offerings, the frankincense, and the vessels, and the tithes of the corn, the new wine, and the oil, which was commanded to be given to the Levites, and the singers, and the porters; and the offerings of the priests.

kjv@Nehemiah:13:6 @ But in all this time was not I at Jerusalem: for in the two and thirtieth year of Artaxerxes king of Babylon came I unto the king, and after certain days obtained I leave of the king:

kjv@Nehemiah:13:7 @ And I came to Jerusalem, and understood of the evil that Eliashib did for Tobiah, in preparing him a chamber in the courts of the house of God.

kjv@Nehemiah:13:8 @ And it grieved me sore: therefore I cast forth all the household stuff of Tobiah out of the chamber.

kjv@Nehemiah:13:9 @ Then I commanded, and they cleansed the chambers: and thither brought I again the vessels of the house of God, with the meat offering and the frankincense.

kjv@Nehemiah:13:10 @ And I perceived that the portions of the Levites had not been given them: for the Levites and the singers, that did the work, were fled every one to his field.

kjv@Nehemiah:13:11 @ Then contended I with the rulers, and said, Why is the house of God forsaken? And I gathered them together, and set them in their place.

kjv@Nehemiah:13:12 @ Then brought all Judah the tithe of the corn and the new wine and the oil unto the treasuries.

kjv@Nehemiah:13:13 @ And I made treasurers over the treasuries, Shelemiah the priest, and Zadok the scribe, and of the Levites, Pedaiah: and next to them was Hanan the son of Zaccur, the son of Mattaniah: for they were counted faithful, and their office was to distribute unto their brethren.

kjv@Nehemiah:13:14 @ Remember me, O my God, concerning this, and wipe not out my good deeds that I have done for the house of my God, and for the offices thereof.

kjv@Nehemiah:13:15 @ In those days saw I in Judah some treading wine presses on the sabbath, and bringing in sheaves, and lading asses; as also wine, grapes, and figs, and all manner of burdens, which they brought into Jerusalem on the sabbath day: and I testified against them in the day wherein they sold victuals.

kjv@Nehemiah:13:16 @ There dwelt men of Tyre also therein, which brought fish, and all manner of ware, and sold on the sabbath unto the children of Judah, and in Jerusalem.

kjv@Nehemiah:13:17 @ Then I contended with the nobles of Judah, and said unto them, What evil thing is this that ye do, and profane the sabbath day?

kjv@Nehemiah:13:18 @ Did not your fathers thus, and did not our God bring all this evil upon us, and upon this city? yet ye bring more wrath upon Israel by profaning the sabbath.

kjv@Nehemiah:13:19 @ And it came to pass, that when the gates of Jerusalem began to be dark before the sabbath, I commanded that the gates should be shut, and charged that they should not be opened till after the sabbath: and some of my servants set I at the gates, that there should no burden be brought in on the sabbath day.

kjv@Nehemiah:13:20 @ So the merchants and sellers of all kind of ware lodged without Jerusalem once or twice.

kjv@Nehemiah:13:21 @ Then I testified against them, and said unto them, Why lodge ye about the wall? if ye do so again, I will lay hands on you. From that time forth came they no more on the sabbath.

kjv@Nehemiah:13:22 @ And I commanded the Levites that they should cleanse themselves, and that they should come and keep the gates, to sanctify the sabbath day. Remember me, O my God, concerning this also, and spare me according to the greatness of thy mercy.

kjv@Nehemiah:13:23 @ In those days also saw I Jews that had married wives of Ashdod, of Ammon, and of Moab:

kjv@Nehemiah:13:24 @ And their children spake half in the speech of Ashdod, and could not speak in the Jews' language, but according to the language of each people.

kjv@Nehemiah:13:25 @ And I contended with them, and cursed them, and smote certain of them, and plucked off their hair, and made them swear by God, saying, Ye shall not give your daughters unto their sons, nor take their daughters unto your sons, or for yourselves.

kjv@Nehemiah:13:26 @ Did not Solomon king of Israel sin by these things? yet among many nations was there no king like him, who was beloved of his God, and God made him king over all Israel: nevertheless even him did outlandish women cause to sin.

kjv@Nehemiah:13:27 @ Shall we then hearken unto you to do all this great evil, to transgress against our God in marrying strange wives?

kjv@Nehemiah:13:28 @ And one of the sons of Joiada, the son of Eliashib the high priest, was son in law to Sanballat the Horonite: therefore I chased him from me.

kjv@Nehemiah:13:29 @ Remember them, O my God, because they have defiled the priesthood, and the covenant of the priesthood, and of the Levites.

kjv@Nehemiah:13:30 @ Thus cleansed I them from all strangers, and appointed the wards of the priests and the Levites, every one in his business;

kjv@Esther:1:8 @ And the drinking was according to the law; none did compel: for so the king had appointed to all the officers of his house, that they should do according to every man's pleasure.

kjv@Esther:1:9 @ Also Vashti the queen made a feast for the women in the royal house which belonged to king Ahasuerus.

kjv@Esther:1:10 @ On the seventh day, when the heart of the king was merry with wine, he commanded Mehuman, Biztha, Harbona, Bigtha, and Abagtha, Zethar, and Carcas, the seven chamberlains that served in the presence of Ahasuerus the king,

kjv@Esther:1:14 @ And the next unto him was Carshena, Shethar, Admatha, Tarshish, Meres, Marsena, and Memucan, the seven princes of Persia and Media, which saw the king's face, and which sat the first in the kingdom;)

kjv@Esther:1:15 @ What shall we do unto the queen Vashti according to law, because she hath not performed the commandment of the king Ahasuerus by the chamberlains?

kjv@Esther:1:16 @ And Memucan answered before the king and the princes, Vashti the queen hath not done wrong to the king only, but also to all the princes, and to all the people that are in all the provinces of the king Ahasuerus.

kjv@Esther:1:17 @ For this deed of the queen shall come abroad unto all women, so that they shall despise their husbands in their eyes, when it shall be reported, The king Ahasuerus commanded Vashti the queen to be brought in before him, but she came not.

kjv@Esther:1:18 @ Likewise shall the ladies of Persia and Media say this day unto all the king's princes, which have heard of the deed of the queen. Thus shall there arise too much contempt and wrath.

kjv@Esther:1:19 @ If it please the king, let there go a royal commandment from him, and let it be written among the laws of the Persians and the Medes, that it be not altered, That Vashti come no more before king Ahasuerus; and let the king give her royal estate unto another that is better than she.

kjv@Esther:1:20 @ And when the king's decree which he shall make shall be published throughout all his empire, (for it is great,) all the wives shall give to their husbands honour, both to great and small.

kjv@Esther:1:21 @ And the saying pleased the king and the princes; and the king did according to the word of Memucan:

kjv@Esther:1:22 @ For he sent letters into all the king's provinces, into every province according to the writing thereof, and to every people after their language, that every man should bear rule in his own house, and that it should be published according to the language of every people.

kjv@Esther:2:1 @ After these things, when the wrath of king Ahasuerus was appeased, he remembered Vashti, and what she had done, and what was decreed against her.

kjv@Esther:2:2 @ Then said the king's servants that ministered unto him, Let there be fair young virgins sought for the king:

kjv@Esther:2:3 @ And let the king appoint officers in all the provinces of his kingdom, that they may gather together all the fair young virgins unto Shushan the palace, to the house of the women, unto the custody of Hege the king's chamberlain, keeper of the women; and let their things for purification be given them:
