2 Chronicles 18 Text (WEB)
  1. Now Jehoshaphat had riches and honor in abundance; and he joined affinity with Ahab.
  2. After certain years he went down to Ahab to Samaria. Ahab killed sheep and cattle for him in abundance, and for the people who were with him, and moved him to go up [with him] to Ramoth Gilead.
  3. Ahab king of Israel said to Jehoshaphat king of Judah, "Will you go with me to Ramoth Gilead?" He answered him, "I am as you are, and my people as your people. We will be with you in the war."
  4. Jehoshaphat said to the king of Israel, "Please inquire first for the word of Yahweh."
  5. Then the king of Israel gathered the prophets together, four hundred men, and said to them, "Shall we go to Ramoth Gilead to battle, or shall I forbear?" They said, "Go up; for God will deliver it into the hand of the king."
  6. But Jehoshaphat said, "Isn't there here a prophet of Yahweh besides, that we may inquire of him?"
  7. The king of Israel said to Jehoshaphat, "There is yet one man by whom we may inquire of Yahweh; but I hate him, for he never prophesies good concerning me, but always evil. He is Micaiah the son of Imla." Jehoshaphat said, "Don't let the king say so."
  8. Then the king of Israel called an officer, and said, "Get Micaiah the son of Imla quickly."
  9. Now the king of Israel and Jehoshaphat the king of Judah sat each on his throne, arrayed in their robes, and they were sitting in an open place at the entrance of the gate of Samaria; and all the prophets were prophesying before them.
  10. Zedekiah the son of Chenaanah made him horns of iron, and said, "Thus says Yahweh, 'With these you shall push the Syrians, until they are consumed.'"
  11. All the prophets prophesied so, saying, "Go up to Ramoth Gilead, and prosper; for Yahweh will deliver it into the hand of the king."
  12. The messenger who went to call Micaiah spoke to him, saying, "Behold, the words of the prophets [declare] good to the king with one mouth. Let your word therefore, please be like one of theirs, and speak good."
  13. Micaiah said, "As Yahweh lives, what my God says, that will I speak."
  14. When he had come to the king, the king said to him, "Micaiah, shall we go to Ramoth Gilead to battle, or shall I forbear?" He said, "Go up, and prosper. They shall be delivered into your hand."
  15. The king said to him, "How many times shall I adjure you that you speak to me nothing but the truth in the name of Yahweh?"
  16. He said, "I saw all Israel scattered on the mountains, as sheep that have no shepherd. Yahweh said, 'These have no master. Let them return every man to his house in peace.'"
  17. The king of Israel said to Jehoshaphat, "Didn't I tell you that he would not prophesy good concerning me, but evil?"
  18. [Micaiah] said, "Therefore hear the word of Yahweh: I saw Yahweh sitting on his throne, and all the army of heaven standing on his right hand and on his left.
  19. Yahweh said, 'Who shall entice Ahab king of Israel, that he may go up and fall at Ramoth Gilead?' One spoke saying in this way, and another saying in that way.
  20. A spirit came out, stood before Yahweh, and said, 'I will entice him.' "Yahweh said to him, 'How?'
  21. "He said, 'I will go forth, and will be a lying spirit in the mouth of all his prophets.' "He said, 'You will entice him, and will prevail also. Go forth, and do so.'
  22. "Now therefore, behold, Yahweh has put a lying spirit in the mouth of these your prophets; and Yahweh has spoken evil concerning you."
  23. Then Zedekiah the son of Chenaanah came near, and struck Micaiah on the cheek, and said, "Which way did the Spirit of Yahweh go from me to speak to you?"
  24. Micaiah said, "Behold, you shall see on that day, when you shall go into an inner room to hide yourself."
  25. The king of Israel said, "Take Micaiah, and carry him back to Amon the governor of the city, and to Joash the king's son;
  26. and say, 'Thus says 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."'"
  27. Micaiah said, "If you return at all in peace, Yahweh has not spoken by me." He said, "Listen, you peoples, all of you!"
  28. So the king of Israel and Jehoshaphat the king of Judah went up to Ramoth Gilead.
  29. The king of Israel said to Jehoshaphat, "I will disguise myself, and go into the battle; but you put on your robes." So the king of Israel disguised himself; and they went into the battle.
  30. Now the king of Syria had commanded the captains of his chariots, saying, "Fight neither with small nor great, except only with the king of Israel."
  31. It happened, when the captains of the chariots saw Jehoshaphat, that they said, "It is the king of Israel!" Therefore they turned around to fight against him. But Jehoshaphat cried out, and Yahweh helped him; and God moved them to depart from him.
  32. It happened, when the captains of the chariots saw that it was not the king of Israel, that they turned back from pursuing him.
  33. A certain man drew his bow at random, and struck the king of Israel between the joints of the armor. Therefore he said to the driver of the chariot, "Turn your hand, and carry me out of the army; for I am severely wounded."
  34. The battle increased that day. However the king of Israel propped himself up in his chariot against the Syrians until the evening; and about the time of the going down of the sun, he died.

  23. ויגש צדקיהו בן־כנענה ויך את־מיכיהו על־הלחי ויאמר אי זה הדרך עבר רוח־יהוה מאתי לדבר אתך׃
  24. ויאמר מיכיהו הנך ראה ביום ההוא אשר תבוא חדר בחדר להחבא׃
  25. ויאמר מלך ישראל קחו את־מיכיהו והשיבהו אל־אמון שר־העיר ואל־יואש בן־המלך׃
  26. ואמרתם כה אמר המלך שימו זה בית הכלא והאכלהו לחם לחץ ומים לחץ עד שובי בשלום׃
  27. ויאמר מיכיהו אם־שוב תשוב בשלום לא־דבר יהוה בי ויאמר שמעו עמים כלם׃ ף
  28. ויעל מלך־ישראל ויהושפט מלך־יהודה אל־רמת גלעד׃
  29. ויאמר מלך ישראל אל־יהושפט התחפש ובוא במלחמה ואתה לבש בגדיך ויתחפש מלך ישראל ויבאו במלחמה׃
  30. ומלך ארם צוה את־שרי הרכב אשר־לו לאמר לא תלחמו את־הקטן את־הגדול כי אם־את־מלך ישראל לבדו׃
  31. ויהי כראות שרי הרכב את־יהושפט והמה אמרו מלך ישראל הוא ויסבו עליו להלחם ויזעק יהושפט ויהוה עזרו ויסיתם אלהים ממנו׃
  32. ויהי כראות שרי הרכב כי לא־היה מלך ישראל וישבו מאחריו׃
  33. ואיש משך בקשת לתמו ויך את־מלך ישראל בין הדבקים ובין השרין ויאמר לרכב הפך והוצאתני מן־המחנה כי החליתי׃
  34. ותעל המלחמה ביום ההוא ומלך ישראל היה מעמיד במרכבה נכח ארם עד־הערב וימת לעת בוא השמש׃

  1. και εγενηθη τω ιωσαφατ ετι πλουτος και δοξα πολλη και επεγαμβρευσατο εν οικω
  2. και κατεβη δια τελους ετων προς αχααβ εις σαμαρειαν και εθυσεν αυτω αχααβ προβατα και μοσχους πολλους και τω λαω τω μετ' αυτου και ηπατα αυτον του συναναβηναι μετ' αυτου εις ραμωθ της

  13. και ειπεν μιχαιας ζη κυριος οτι ο εαν ειπη ο θεος προς με αυτο
  14. και ηλθεν προς τον βασιλεα και ειπεν αυτω ο βασιλευς μιχαια ει πορευθω εις ραμωθ γαλααδ εις πολεμον η επισχω και ειπεν αναβαινε και ευοδωσεις και δοθησονται εις χειρας
  15. και ειπεν αυτω ο βασιλευς ποσακις ορκιζω σε ινα μη λαλησης προς με πλην αληθειαν εν ονοματι
  16. και ειπεν ειδον τον ισραηλ διεσπαρμενους εν τοις ορεσιν ως προβατα οις ουκ εστιν ποιμην και ειπεν κυριος ουκ εχουσιν ηγουμενον αναστρεφετωσαν εκαστος εις τον οικον αυτου εν

2 Chronicles 18 Text (Latin)
  1. Fuit ergo Josaphat dives et inclytus multum, et affinitate conjunctus est Achab.
  2. Descenditque post annos ad eum in Samariam : ad cujus adventum mactavit Achab arietes, et boves plurimos ipsi, et populo qui venerat cum eo : persuasitque illi ut ascenderet in Ramoth Galaad.
  3. Dixitque Achab rex Israël ad Josaphat regem Juda : Veni mecum in Ramoth Galaad. Cui ille respondit : Ut ego, et tu : sicut populus tuus, sic et populus meus : tecumque erimus in bello.
  4. Dixitque Josaphat ad regem Israël : Consule, obsecro, impræsentiarum sermonem Domini.
  5. Congregavit igitur rex Israël prophetarum quadringentos viros, et dixit ad eos : In Ramoth Galaad ad bellandum ire debemus, an quiescere ? At illi, Ascende, inquiunt, et tradet Deus in manu regis.
  6. Dixitque Josaphat : Numquid non est hic prophetes Domini, ut ab illo etiam requiramus ?
  7. Et ait rex Israël ad Josaphat : Est vir unus, a quo possumus quærere Domini voluntatem : sed ego odi eum, quia non prophetat mihi bonum, sed malum omni tempore : est autem Michæas filius Jemla. Dixitque Josaphat : Ne loquaris rex hoc modo.
  8. Vocavit ergo rex Israël unum de eunuchis, et dixit ei : Voca cito Michæam filium Jemla.
  9. Porro rex Israël, et Josaphat rex Juda, uterque sedebant in solio suo, vestiti cultu regio : sedebant autem in area juxta portam Samariæ, omnesque prophetæ vaticinabantur coram eis.
  10. Sedecias vero filius Chanaana fecit sibi cornua ferrea, et ait : Hæc dicit Dominus : His ventilabis Syriam, donec conteras eam.
  11. Omnesque prophetæ similiter prophetabant, atque dicebant : Ascende in Ramoth Galaad, et prosperaberis, et tradet eos Dominus in manu regis.
  12. Nuntius autem, qui ierat ad vocandum Michæam, ait illi : En verba omnium prophetarum uno ore bona regi annuntiant : quæso ergo te ut et sermo tuus ab eis non dissentiat, loquarisque prospera.
  13. Cui respondit Michæas : Vivit Dominus, quia quodcumque dixerit mihi Deus meus, hoc loquar.
  14. Venit ergo ad regem. Cui rex ait : Michæa, ire debemus in Ramoth Galaad ad bellandum, an quiescere ? Cui ille respondit : Ascendite : cuncta enim prospera evenient, et tradentur hostes in manus vestras.
  15. Dixitque rex : Iterum, atque iterum te adjuro, ut mihi non loquaris, nisi quod verum est in nomine Domini.
  16. At ille ait : Vidi universum Israël dispersum in montibus, sicut oves absque pastore : et dixit Dominus : Non habent isti dominos : revertatur unusquisque in domum suam in pace.
  17. Et ait rex Israël ad Josaphat : Nonne dixi tibi, quod non prophetaret iste mihi quidquam boni, sed ea quæ mala sunt ?
  18. At ille, Idcirco, ait, audite verbum Domini : vidi Dominum sedentem in solio suo, et omnem exercitum cæli assistentem ei a dextris et a sinistris.
  19. Et dixit Dominus : Quis decipiet Achab regem Israël ut ascendat et corruat in Ramoth Galaad ? Cumque diceret unus hoc modo, et alter alio,
  20. processit spiritus, et stetit coram Domino, et ait : Ego decipiam eum. Cui Dominus, In quo, inquit, decipies ?
  21. At ille respondit : Egrediar, et ero spiritus mendax in ore omnium prophetarum ejus. Dixitque Dominus : Decipies, et prævalebis : egredere, et fac ita.
  22. Nunc igitur, ecce Dominus dedit spiritum mendacii in ore omnium prophetarum tuorum, et Dominus locutus est de te mala.
  23. Accessit autem Sedecias filius Chanaana, et percussit Michææ maxillam, et ait : Per quam viam transivit spiritus Domini a me, ut loqueretur tibi ?
  24. Dixitque Michæas : Tu ipse videbis in die illo, quando ingressus fueris cubiculum de cubiculo ut abscondaris.
  25. Præcepit autem rex Israël, dicens : Tollite Michæam, et ducite eum ad Amon principem civitatis, et ad Joas filium Amelech.
  26. Et dicetis : Hæc dicit rex : Mittite hunc in carcerem, et date ei panis modicum, et aquæ pauxillum, donec revertar in pace.
  27. Dixitque Michæas : Si reversus fueris in pace, non est locutus Dominus in me. Et ait : Audite, omnes populi.
  28. Igitur ascenderunt rex Israël et Josaphat rex Juda in Ramoth Galaad.
  29. Dixitque rex Israël ad Josaphat : Mutabo habitum, et sic ad pugnam vadam : tu autem induere vestibus tuis. Mutatoque rex Israël habitu, venit ad bellum.
  30. Rex autem Syriæ præceperat ducibus equitatus sui, dicens : Ne pugnetis contra minimum, aut contra maximum, nisi contra solum regem Israël.
  31. Itaque cum vidissent principes equitatus Josaphat, dixerunt : Rex Israël est iste. Et circumdederunt eum dimicantes : at ille clamavit ad Dominum, et auxiliatus est ei, atque avertit eos ab illo.
  32. Cum enim vidissent duces equitatus, quod non esset rex Israël, reliquerunt eum.
  33. Accidit autem ut unus e populo sagittam in incertum jaceret, et percuteret regem Israël inter cervicem et scapulas. At ille aurigæ suo ait : Converte manum tuam, et educ me de acie, quia vulneratus sum.
  34. Et finita est pugna in die illo : porro rex Israël stabat in curru suo contra Syros usque ad vesperam, et mortuus est occidente sole.
2 Chronicles 18 Text (KJV)
  1. Now Jehoshaphat had riches and honour in abundance, and joined affinity with Ahab.
  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 Ramoth-gilead.
  3. And Ahab king of Israel said unto Jehoshaphat king of Judah, Wilt thou go with me to Ramoth-gilead? And he answered him, I am as thou art, and my people as thy people; and we will be with thee in the war.
  4. And Jehoshaphat said unto the king of Israel, Inquire, I pray thee, at the word of the LORD to day.
  5. Therefore the king of Israel gathered together of prophets four hundred men, and said unto them, Shall we go to Ramoth-gilead to battle, or shall I forbear? And they said, Go up; for God will deliver it into the king's hand.
  6. But Jehoshaphat said, Is there not here a prophet of the LORD besides, that we might inquire of him?
  7. And the king of Israel said unto Jehoshaphat, There is yet one man, by whom we may inquire 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.
  8. And the king of Israel called for one of his officers, and said, Fetch quickly Micaiah the son of Imla.
  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.
  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.
  11. And all the prophets prophesied so, saying, Go up to Ramoth-gilead, and prosper: for the LORD shall deliver it into the hand of the king.
  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.
  13. And Micaiah said, As the LORD liveth, even what my God saith, that will I speak.
  14. And when he was come to the king, the king said unto him, Micaiah, shall we go to Ramoth-gilead to battle, or shall I forbear? And he said, Go ye up, and prosper, and they shall be delivered into your hand.
  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?
  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.
  17. And the king of Israel said to Jehoshaphat, Did I not tell thee that he would not prophesy good unto me, but evil?
  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.
  19. And the LORD said, Who shall entice Ahab king of Israel, that he may go up and fall at Ramoth-gilead? And one spake saying after this manner, and another saying after that manner.
  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?
  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.
  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.
  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?
  24. And Micaiah said, Behold, thou shalt see on that day when thou shalt go into an inner chamber to hide thyself.
  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;
  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.
  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.
  28. So the king of Israel and Jehoshaphat the king of Judah went up to Ramoth-gilead.
  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.
  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.
  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.
  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.
