28:3
ipse est qui adolevit incensum in valle Benennon etlustravit filios suos in igne iuxta ritum gentium quasinterfecit Dominus in adventu filiorum Israhel

28:5
tradiditque eum Dominus Deus eius in manu regis Syriae quipercussit eum magnamque praedam de eius cepit imperio etadduxit in Damascum manibus quoque regis Israhel traditus estet percussus plaga grandi

28:6
occiditque Phacee filius Romeliae de Iuda centum vigintimilia in die uno omnes viros bellatores eo quod reliquissentDominum Deum patrum suorum

28:9
ea tempestate erat ibi propheta Domini nomine Oded quiegressus obviam exercitui venientium in Samariam dixit eis ecceiratus Dominus Deus patrum vestrorum contra Iudam tradidit eosmanibus vestris et occidistis illos atrociter ita ut caelumpertingeret vestra crudelitas

28:10
insuper filios Iuda et Hierusalem vultis vobis subicere inservos et ancillas quod nequaquam facto opus est peccatis enimsuper hoc Domino Deo vestro

28:11
sed audite consilium meum et reducite captivos quosadduxistis de fratribus vestris quia magnus furor Dominiinminet vobis

28:12
steterunt itaque viri de principibus filiorum EphraimAzarias filius Iohanan Barachias filius Mosollamoth Hiezechiasfilius Sellum et Amasa filius Adali contra eos qui veniebant deproelio

et dixerunt eis non introducetis huc captivos ne peccemusDomino quare vultis adicere super peccata nostra et veteracumulare delicta grande quippe peccatum est et ira furorisDomini inminet super Israhel

28:14
dimiseruntque viri bellatores praedam et universa quaeceperant coram principibus et omni multitudine

28:15
steteruntque viri quos supra memoravimus et adprehendentescaptivos omnesque qui nudi erant vestierunt de spoliis cumquevestissent eos et calciassent et refecissent cibo ac potuunxissent quoque propter laborem et adhibuissent eis curamquicumque ambulare non poterant et erant inbecillo corporeinposuerunt eos iumentis et adduxerunt Hierichum civitatemPalmarum ad fratres eorum ipsique reversi sunt Samariam

028:001
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:

028:002
For he walked in the ways of the kings of Israel, and made also molten images for Baalim.

028:003
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.

028:004
He sacrificed also and burnt incense in the high places, and on the hills, and under every green tree.

028:005
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.

028:006
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.

028:007
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.

028:008
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.

028:009
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.

028:010
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?

028:011
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.

028:012
Then certain of the heads of the children of Ephraim, Azariah the son of Johanan, Berechiah the son of Meshillemoth, and Jehizkiah the son of Shallum, and Amasa the son of Hadlai, stood up against them that came from the war,

028:013
And said unto them, Ye shall not bring in the captives hither: for whereas we have offended against the LORD already, ye intend to add more to our sins and to our trespass: for our trespass is great, and there is fierce wrath against Israel.

028:014
So the armed men left the captives and the spoil before the princes and all the congregation.

028:015
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.

028:016
At that time did king Ahaz send unto the kings of Assyria to help him.

028:017
For again the Edomites had come and smitten Judah, and carried away captives.

028:018
The Philistines also had invaded the cities of the low country, and of the south of Judah, and had taken Bethshemesh, and Ajalon, and Gederoth, and Shocho with the villages thereof, and Timnah with the villages thereof, Gimzo also and the villages thereof: and they dwelt there.

028:019
For the LORD brought Judah low because of Ahaz king of Israel; for he made Judah naked, and transgressed sore against the LORD.

028:020
And Tilgathpilneser king of Assyria came unto him, and distressed him, but strengthened him not.

028:021
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.

028:022
And in the time of his distress did he trespass yet more against the LORD: this is that king Ahaz.

028:023
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.

028:024
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.

028:025
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.

028:026
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.

028:027
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.
