25:2
fecitque bonum in conspectu Domini verumtamen non in cordeperfecto

25:3
cumque roboratum sibi videret imperium iugulavit servos quiocciderant regem patrem suum

25:4
sed filios eorum non interfecit sicut scriptum est in librolegis Mosi ubi praecepit Dominus dicens non occidentur patrespro filiis neque filii pro patribus suis sed unusquisque in suopeccato morietur

25:5
congregavit igitur Amasias Iudam et constituit eos perfamilias tribunosque et centuriones in universo Iuda etBeniamin et recensuit a viginti annis sursum invenitquetriginta milia iuvenum qui egrederentur ad pugnam et tenerenthastam et clypeum

25:7
venit autem homo Dei ad illum et ait o rex ne egrediaturtecum exercitus Israhel non est enim Dominus cum Israhel etcunctis filiis Ephraim

25:8
quod si putas in robore exercitus bella consistere superarite faciet Deus ab hostibus Dei quippe est et adiuvare et infugam vertere

25:9
dixitque Amasias ad hominem Dei quid ergo fiet de centumtalentis quae dedi militibus Israhel et respondit ei homo Deihabet Dominus unde tibi dare possit multo his plura

25:10
separavit itaque Amasias exercitum qui venerat ad eum exEphraim ut reverteretur in locum suum at illi contra Iudamvehementer irati reversi sunt in regionem suam

25:15
quam ob rem iratus Dominus contra Amasiam misit ad illumprophetam qui diceret ei cur adorasti deos qui non liberaveruntpopulum suum de manu tua

25:16
cumque haec ille loqueretur respondit ei num consiliariusregis es quiesce ne interficiam te discedensque propheta scioinquit quod cogitaverit Dominus occidere te qui et fecisti hocmalum et insuper non adquievisti consilio meo

25:17
igitur Amasias rex Iuda inito pessimo consilio misit adIoas filium Ioachaz filii Hieu regem Israhel dicens venivideamus nos mutuo

dixisti percussi Edom et idcirco erigitur cor tuum insuperbiam sede in domo tua cur malum adversum te provocas utcadas et tu et Iudas tecum

25:20
noluit audire Amasias eo quod Domini esset voluntas uttraderetur in manibus hostium propter deos Edom

025:001
Amaziah was twenty and five years old when he began to reign, and he reigned twenty and nine years in Jerusalem. And his mother's name was Jehoaddan of Jerusalem.

025:002
And he did that which was right in the sight of the LORD, but not with a perfect heart.

025:003
Now it came to pass, when the kingdom was established to him, that he slew his servants that had killed the king his father.

025:004
But he slew not their children, but did as it is written in the law in the book of Moses, where the LORD commanded, saying, The fathers shall not die for the children, neither shall the children die for the fathers, but every man shall die for his own sin.

025:005
Moreover Amaziah gathered Judah together, and made them captains over thousands, and captains over hundreds, according to the houses of their fathers, throughout all Judah and Benjamin: and he numbered them from twenty years old and above, and found them three hundred thousand choice men, able to go forth to war, that could handle spear and shield.

025:006
He hired also an hundred thousand mighty men of valor out of Israel for an hundred talents of silver.

025:007
But there came a man of God to him, saying, O king, let not the army of Israel go with thee; for the LORD is not with Israel, to wit, with all the children of Ephraim.

025:008
But if thou wilt go, do it; be strong for the battle: God shall make thee fall before the enemy: for God hath power to help, and to cast down.

025:009
And Amaziah said to the man of God, But what shall we do for the hundred talents which I have given to the army of Israel? And the man of God answered, The LORD is able to give thee much more than this.

025:010
Then Amaziah separated them, to wit, the army that was come to him out of Ephraim, to go home again: wherefore their anger was greatly kindled against Judah, and they returned home in great anger.

025:011
And Amaziah strengthened himself, and led forth his people, and went to the valley of salt, and smote of the children of Seir ten thousand.

025:012
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.

025:013
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.

025:014
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.

025:015
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?

025:016
And it came to pass, as he talked with him, that the king said unto him, Art thou made of the king's counsel? forbear; why shouldest thou be smitten? Then the prophet forbare, and said, I know that God hath determined to destroy thee, because thou hast done this, and hast not hearkened unto my counsel.

025:017
Then Amaziah king of Judah took advice, and sent to Joash, the son of Jehoahaz, the son of Jehu, king of Israel, saying, Come, let us see one another in the face.

025:018
And Joash king of Israel sent to Amaziah king of Judah, saying, The thistle that was in Lebanon sent to the cedar that was in Lebanon, saying, Give thy daughter to my son to wife: and there passed by a wild beast that was in Lebanon, and trode down the thistle.

025:019
Thou sayest, Lo, thou hast smitten the Edomites; and thine heart lifteth thee up to boast: abide now at home; why shouldest thou meddle to thine hurt, that thou shouldest fall, even thou, and Judah with thee?

025:020
But Amaziah would not hear; for it came of God, that he might deliver them into the hand of their enemies, because they sought after the gods of Edom.

025:021
So Joash the king of Israel went up; and they saw one another in the face, both he and Amaziah king of Judah, at Bethshemesh, which belongeth to Judah.

025:022
And Judah was put to the worse before Israel, and they fled every man to his tent.

025:023
And Joash the king of Israel took Amaziah king of Judah, the son of Joash, the son of Jehoahaz, at Bethshemesh, and brought him to Jerusalem, and brake down the wall of Jerusalem from the gate of Ephraim to the corner gate, four hundred cubits.

025:024
And he took all the gold and the silver, and all the vessels that were found in the house of God with Obededom, and the treasures of the king's house, the hostages also, and returned to Samaria.

025:025
And Amaziah the son of Joash king of Judah lived after the death of Joash son of Jehoahaz king of Israel fifteen years.

025:026
Now the rest of the acts of Amaziah, first and last, behold, are they not written in the book of the kings of Judah and Israel?

025:027
Now after the time that Amaziah did turn away from following the LORD they made a conspiracy against him in Jerusalem; and he fled to Lachish: but they sent to Lachish after him, and slew him there.

025:028
And they brought him upon horses, and buried him with his fathers in the city of Judah.
