1Kings 1:1 And Sovereign Dud was old, advanced in years. And they covered him with garments, but he could not get warm.
1Kings 1:2 So his servants said to him, “Let them seek for our master the sovereign a young woman, a maiden, and she shall stand before the sovereign and be his companion, and shall lie in your bosom, so that our master the sovereign gets warm.”
1Kings 1:3 And they sought for a lovely young woman in all the border of Yashara'Al, and found Abiyshag the Shunamiyth, and brought her to the sovereign.
1Kings 1:4 And the young woman was very lovely. And she was a companion for the sovereign, and served him, but the sovereign did not know her.
1Kings 1:5 And AdanYahu son of Chagiyth exalted himself, saying, “I reign.” And he prepared for himself a chariot and horsemen, and fifty men to run before him.
1Kings 1:6 Now his father had not worried him at any time by saying, “Why have you done so?” He was also very good-looking. And he was born after Abshalum.
1Kings 1:7 And he talked with YahuAb son of TsaruYah and with Abiythar the priest, and they supported AdanYahu.
1Kings 1:8 But Tsaduq the priest, and BanYahu son of YahuYadau, and Nathan the prophet, and Shamauiy, and Rau'iy, and the mighty men who belonged to Dud were not with AdanYahu.
1Kings 1:9 And AdanYahu offered sheep and cattle and fatlings by the stone of Tsachalath, which is by Auin Ragal. He also invited all his brothers, the sovereign’s sons, and all the men of Yahudah, servants of the sovereign.
1Kings 1:10 But he did not invite Nathan the prophet, or BanYahu, or the mighty men, or Shalamah his brother.
1Kings 1:11 Nathan then spoke to Bathshabau the mother of Shalamah, saying, “Have you not heard that AdanYahu son of Chagiyth has become sovereign, and Dud our master does not know it?
1Kings 1:12 “And now, come let me give you advice, and deliver your own life and the life of your son Shalamah.
1Kings 1:13 “Go immediately to Sovereign Dud and say to him, ‘Did you not, my master, O sovereign, swear to your female servant, saying, “Certainly, your son Shalamah shall reign after me, and he shall sit on my throne”? Why then has AdanYahu become sovereign?’
1Kings 1:14 “Look, while you are still speaking there with the sovereign let me come in after you and confirm your words.”
1Kings 1:15 And Bathshabau went into the room to the sovereign. Now the sovereign was very old, and Abiyshag the Shunamiyth was serving the sovereign.
1Kings 1:16 And Bathshabau bowed and did obeisance to the sovereign. And the sovereign said, “What do you wish?”
1Kings 1:17 And she said to him, “My master, you swore by 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 your Alahiym to your female servant, saying, ‘Certainly, Shalamah your son shall reign after me, and he shall sit on my throne.’
1Kings 1:18 “And now, look! AdanYahu has become sovereign. And now, my master the sovereign, you do not know about it.
1Kings 1:19 “And he has offered great numbers of bulls and fatlings and sheep, and has invited all the sons of the sovereign, and Abiythar the priest, and YahuAb the commander of the army, but he did not invite Shalamah your servant.
1Kings 1:20 “And you my master, O sovereign, the eyes of all Yashara'Al are on you, to declare to them who is going to sit on the throne of my master the sovereign after him.
1Kings 1:21 “Otherwise it shall be, when my master the sovereign rests with his fathers, that I and my son Shalamah shall be considered sinners.”
1Kings 1:22 And see, while she was still speaking with the sovereign, Nathan the prophet also came in.
1Kings 1:23 So they informed the sovereign, saying, “Here is Nathan the prophet.” And when he came in before the sovereign, he bowed down before the sovereign with his face to the ground.
1Kings 1:24 And Nathan said, “My master, O sovereign, have you said, ‘AdanYahu shall reign after me, and he shall sit on my throne’?
1Kings 1:25 “For he has gone down today, and has offered great numbers of bulls and fatlings and sheep, and has invited all the sovereign’s sons, and the commanders of the army, and Abiythar the priest. And look! They are eating and drinking before him. And they say, ‘Let Sovereign AdanYahu live!’
1Kings 1:26 “But he has not invited me, me your servant, nor Tsadaq the priest, nor BanYahu son of YahuYadau, nor your servant Shalamah.
1Kings 1:27 “If this matter is from my master the sovereign, then you did not let your servant know who should sit on the throne of my master the sovereign after him.”
1Kings 1:28 And Sovereign Dud answered and said, “Call Bathshabau to me.” So she came into the sovereign’s presence and stood before the sovereign.
1Kings 1:29 And the sovereign took an oath and said, “As 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 lives, who has redeemed my life out of all distress,
1Kings 1:30 even as I swore to you by 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 Alahiym of Yashara'Al, saying, ‘Certainly, Shalamah your son shall reign after me, and he shall sit on my throne in my place,’ even so I do this day.”
1Kings 1:31 And Bathshabau bowed with her face to the earth, and did obeisance to the sovereign, and said, “Let my master Sovereign Dud live forever!”
1Kings 1:32 And Sovereign Dud said, “Call me Tsaduq the priest, and Nathan the prophet, and BanYahu son of YahuYadau.” And they came before the sovereign.
1Kings 1:33 And the sovereign said to them, “Take with you the servants of your master, and you shall have Shalamah my son ride on my own mule, and take him down to Gachun.
1Kings 1:34 “And there Tsaduq the priest and Nathan the prophet shall anoint him sovereign over Yashara'Al. And blow the horn, and say, ‘Let Sovereign Shalamah live!’
1Kings 1:35 “And you shall come up after him, and he shall come and sit on my throne, and he shall reign in my place. For I have appointed him to be ruler over Yashara'Al and over Yahudah.”
1Kings 1:36 And BanYahu son of YahuYadau answered the sovereign and said, “Aman! So says 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 Alahiym of my master the sovereign.
1Kings 1:37 “As 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 has been with my master the sovereign, so let Him be with Shalamah and make his throne greater than the throne of my master Sovereign Dud.”
1Kings 1:38 Then Tsaduq the priest, and Nathan the prophet, and BanYahu son of YahuYadau, and the Karathiy, and the Phalathiy went down and had Shalamah ride on Sovereign Dud’s mule, and took him to Gachun.
1Kings 1:39 And Tsaduq the priest took a horn of oil from the Tent and anointed Shalamah. And they blew the horn, and all the people said, “Let Sovereign Shalamah live!”
1Kings 1:40 And all the people came up after him. And the people played the flutes and rejoiced with great joy, so that the earth was split by their noise!
1Kings 1:41 And AdanYahu and all the guests who were with him heard it as they had finished eating. And YahuAb heard the sound of the horn, and said, “Why is the city in such a noisy uproar?”
1Kings 1:42 And he was still speaking, then see, YahuNathan came, son of Abiythar the priest. And AdanYahu said to him, “Come in, for you are a brave man, and you bring good news.”
1Kings 1:43 But YahuNathan answered and said to AdanYahu, “No! Our master Sovereign Dud has made Shalamah sovereign,
1Kings 1:44 and the sovereign has sent with him Tsaduq the priest, and Nathan the prophet, and BanYahu son of YahuYadau, and the Karathiy, and the Phalathiy. And they had him ride on the sovereign’s mule.
1Kings 1:45 “And Tsaduq the priest and Nathan the prophet have anointed him sovereign at Gachun. And they have gone up from there rejoicing, and the city is moved. This is the noise you heard.
1Kings 1:46 “And further, Shalamah sits on the throne of the reign.
1Kings 1:47 “And further, the servants of the sovereign have gone to bless our master Sovereign Dud, saying, ‘Let your Alahiym make the name of Shalamah better than your name, and his throne greater than your throne.’ And the sovereign bowed himself on the bed.
1Kings 1:48 “And the sovereign also said thus, ‘Blessed be 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 Alahiym of Yashara'Al, who has given one to sit on my throne this day, while my eyes see it!’ ”
1Kings 1:49 And all the guests who were invited by AdanYahu were afraid, and rose, and each one went his way.
1Kings 1:50 And AdanYahu was afraid of Shalamah, and rose, and went and took hold of the horns of the altar.
1Kings 1:51 And it was reported to Shalamah, saying, “Look, AdanYahu is afraid of Sovereign Shalamah. And look, he has taken hold of the horns of the altar, saying, ‘Let Sovereign Shalamah swear to me today that he does not put his servant to death with the sword.’ ”
1Kings 1:52 And Shalamah said, “If he proves himself a worthy man, not one hair of him is going to fall to the earth, but if evil is found in him, then he shall die.”
1Kings 1:53 And Sovereign Shalamah sent, and they brought him down from the altar. And he came and fell down before Sovereign Shalamah. And Shalamah said to him, “Go to your house.”
1Kings 2:1 And the days of Dud drew near to die, and he commanded Shalamah his son, saying,
1Kings 2:2 “I am going the way of all the earth. And you shall be strong, and be a man.
1Kings 2:3 “And guard the Charge of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 your Alahiym: to walk in His ways, to guard His laws, His commands, His right-rulings, and His witnesses, as it is written in the Torat of Mashah, so that you do wisely all that you do and wherever you turn;
1Kings 2:4 so that 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 does establish His word which He spoke concerning me, saying, ‘If your sons guard their way, to walk before Me in truth with all their heart and with all their being,’ saying, ‘there is not to cease a man of yours on the throne of Yashara'Al.’
1Kings 2:5 “And also, you know what YahuAb son of TsaruYah did to me, and what he did to the two commanders of the armies of Yashara'Al, to Abnar son of Nar and Aumasha son of Yathar, that he slew them, and shed the blood of battle in peace, and put the blood of battle on his belt that was around his waist, and on his sandals that were on his feet.
1Kings 2:6 “So act according to your wisdom, and do not let his gray hair go down to the grave in peace.
1Kings 2:7 “But show kindness to the sons of Barzaliy the Gal'audiy, and let them be among those who eat at your table, for so they came to me when I fled from Abshalum your brother.
1Kings 2:8 “And see, with you is Shamauiy son of Gara, Ban-Ha'Yaminiy from Bachariym, who cursed me with a grievous cursing in the day when I went to Machaniym. But he came down to meet me at the Yardan, and I swore to him by 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, saying, ‘I shall not put you to death with the sword.’
1Kings 2:9 “And now, do not leave him unpunished, for you are a wise man and know what you should do to him, and shall bring his gray hair down to the grave with blood.”
1Kings 2:10 And Dud slept with his fathers, and was buried in the City of Dud.
1Kings 2:11 And the days that Dud reigned over Yashara'Al was forty years. He reigned seven years in Chabrun, and in Yarushalam he reigned thirty-three years.
1Kings 2:12 And Shalamah sat on the throne of his father Dud. And his reign was firmly established.
1Kings 2:13 And AdanYahu son of Chagiyth came to Bathshabau the mother of Shalamah, and she said, “Do you come in peace?” And he said, “Peace.”
1Kings 2:14 And he said, “I have a word for you,” and she said, “Speak.”
1Kings 2:15 And he said, “You know that the reign was mine, and all Yashara'Al had set their faces toward me, that I should reign. But the reign has been turned around, and has become my brother’s, for it was his from 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄.
1Kings 2:16 “And now, I am making one request of you, do not refuse me.” And she said to him, “Say it.”
1Kings 2:17 And he said, “Please speak to Sovereign Shalamah – for he would not refuse you – to give me Abiyshag the Shunamiyth as wife.”
1Kings 2:18 And Bathshabau said, “Good, let me speak for you to the sovereign.”
1Kings 2:19 And Bathshabau came to Sovereign Shalamah, to speak to him for AdanYahu. And the sovereign rose up to meet her and bowed down to her, and sat down on his throne and had a throne set for the sovereign’s mother. So she sat at his right hand.
1Kings 2:20 And she said, “I am making one small request of you, do not refuse me.” And the sovereign said to her, “Ask it, my mother, for I do not refuse you.”
1Kings 2:21 Then she said, “Let Abiyshag the Shunamiyth be given to AdanYahu your brother as wife.”
1Kings 2:22 And Sovereign Shalamah answered and said to his mother, “Now why do you ask Abiyshag the Shunamiyth for AdanYahu? Ask for him the reign also – for he is my older brother – for him, and for Abiythar the priest, and for YahuAb son of TsaruYah.”
1Kings 2:23 And Sovereign Shalamah swore by 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, saying, “Alahiym does so to me, and more also, if AdanYahu has not spoken this word against his own life!
1Kings 2:24 “And now, as 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 lives, who established me and set me on the throne of Dud my father, and who has made me a house, as He promised, AdanYahu shall be put to death today!”
1Kings 2:25 And Sovereign Shalamah sent by the hand of BanYahu son of YahuYadau, and he fell upon him, and he died.
1Kings 2:26 Then the sovereign said to Abiythar the priest, “Go to Aunathath, to your own fields, for you deserve death. But I do not put you to death at this time, because you did bear the ark of the Master 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 before my father Dud, and because you were afflicted in all my father was afflicted in.”
1Kings 2:27 So Shalamah dismissed Abiythar from being priest to 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, to fill the word of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 which He spoke concerning the house of Aliy at Shalah.
1Kings 2:28 And news came to YahuAb, for YahuAb had turned aside after AdanYahu, though he did not turn aside after Abshalum. And YahuAb fled to the Tent of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, and took hold of the horns of the altar.
1Kings 2:29 And the report came to Sovereign Shalamah that YahuAb had fled to the Tent of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, and see, he is by the altar. Then Shalamah sent BanYahu son of YahuYadau, saying, “Go, fall on him.”
1Kings 2:30 So BanYahu came to the Tent of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 and said to him, “Thus said the sovereign, ‘Come out!’ ” And he said, “No, for here I die.” And BanYahu brought back word to the sovereign, saying, “Thus said YahuAb, and thus he answered me.”
1Kings 2:31 And the sovereign said to him, “Do as he has said, and fall upon him. And you shall bury him, so that you take away from me and from the house of my father the blood which YahuAb shed without cause.
1Kings 2:32 “Thus 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 shall return his blood on his head, because he had fallen on two men more righteous and better than he, and slew them with the sword, while my father Dud did not know it: Abnar son of Nar, commander of the army of Yashara'Al, and Aumasha son of Yathar, commander of the army of Yahudah.
1Kings 2:33 “So shall their blood return upon the head of YahuAb and upon the head of his seed forever. But upon Dud and his seed, upon his house and his throne, there is to be peace forever from 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄.”
1Kings 2:34 Then BanYahu son of YahuYadau went up and fell upon him and put him to death. And he was buried in his own house in the wilderness.
1Kings 2:35 And the sovereign put BanYahu son of YahuYadau in his place over the army, and the sovereign put Tsaduq the priest in the place of Abiythar.
1Kings 2:36 And the sovereign sent and called for Shamauiy, and said to him, “Build yourself a house in Yarushalam and dwell there, and do not go out from there anywhere.
1Kings 2:37 “And it shall be, on the day you go out and pass over the valley Qadrun, know for certain that you shall die – your blood is on your own head.”
1Kings 2:38 And Shamauiy said to the sovereign, “The word is good. As my master the sovereign has said, so your servant does.” So Shamauiy dwelt in Yarushalam many days.
1Kings 2:39 And it came to be at the end of three years, that two slaves of Shamauiy fled to Akish son of Mau'kah, sovereign of Gath. And they informed Shamauiy, saying, “See, your slaves are in Gath!”
1Kings 2:40 And Shamauiy rose up, and saddled his donkey, and went to Akish at Gath to look for his slaves. And Shamauiy went and brought his slaves from Gath.
1Kings 2:41 And Shalamah was told that Shamauiy had gone from Yarushalam to Gath and had come back.
1Kings 2:42 So the sovereign sent and called for Shamauiy, and said to him, “Did I not make you swear by 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, and warn you, saying, ‘Know for certain that on the day you leave to go anywhere, you shall certainly die’? And you said to me, ‘The word I have heard is good.’
1Kings 2:43 “And why have you not guarded the oath of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 and the command that I gave you?”
1Kings 2:44 The sovereign also said to Shamauiy, “You shall know all the evil that your heart has known, that you did to my father Dud. And 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 shall return your evil on your own head.
1Kings 2:45 “But Sovereign Shalamah is blessed, and the throne of Dud is established before 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 forever.”
1Kings 2:46 So the sovereign ordered BanYahu son of YahuYadau, and he went out and fell on him, and he died. And the reign was established in the hand of Shalamah.
1Kings 3:1 And Shalamah joined in marriage with Pharauh sovereign of Matsriym, and took the daughter of Pharauh, and brought her to the City of Dud until he had completed building his own house, and the House of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, and the wall all around Yarushalam.
1Kings 3:2 Only, the people slaughtered at the high places, for a house for the Name of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 had not been built until those days.
1Kings 3:3 And Shalamah loved 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, walking in the laws of his father Dud, except that he slaughtered and burned incense at the high places.
1Kings 3:4 And the sovereign went to Gabau‛nah to slaughter there, for that was the great high place. Shalamah offered a thousand burnt offerings on that altar.
1Kings 3:5 At Gabau‛un 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 appeared to Shalamah in a dream by night, and Alahiym said, “Ask what I should give you.”
1Kings 3:6 And Shalamah said, “You have shown great kindness to your servant Dud my father, as he walked before You in truth, and in righteousness, and in uprightness of heart with You. And You have guarded for him this great kindness, and did give him a son to sit on his throne, as it is this day.
1Kings 3:7 “And now, O 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 my Alahiym, You have set up Your servant to reign instead of my father Dud. But I am a little child, I do not know how to go out or to come in.
1Kings 3:8 “And Your servant is in the midst of Your people whom You have chosen, a great people, too numerous to be numbered or counted.
1Kings 3:9 “Shall You then give to Your servant an understanding heart to rule Your people, to discern between good and evil? For who is able to rule this great people of Yours?”
1Kings 3:10 And the word was good in the eyes of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, that Shalamah had asked this.
1Kings 3:11 So Alahiym said to him, “Because you have asked this, and have not asked long life for yourself, nor have asked riches for yourself, nor have asked the life of your enemies, but have asked for yourself discernment to understand right-ruling,
1Kings 3:12 see, I shall do according to your words. See, I shall give you a wise and understanding heart, so that there was none like you before you, and none like you shall arise after you.
1Kings 3:13 “And I shall also give you what you have not asked: both riches and esteem, so that there shall not be anyone like you among the sovereigns all your days.
1Kings 3:14 “And if you walk in My ways, to guard My laws and My commands, as your father Duid walked, then I shall prolong your days.”
1Kings 3:15 And Shalamah awoke, and see, it was a dream! And he came into Yarushalam and stood before the ark of the covenant of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, and offered up burnt offerings and made peace offerings. And he made a feast for all his servants.
1Kings 3:16 Then two women, whores, came to the sovereign, and stood before him.
1Kings 3:17 And one woman said, “O my master, this woman and I dwell in the same house. And I gave birth while she was in the house.
1Kings 3:18 “And it came to be, the third day after I had given birth, that this woman also gave birth. And we were together. There was no one else with us in the house, only the two of us in the house.
1Kings 3:19 “Then this woman’s son died in the night, because she lay on him.
1Kings 3:20 “And she rose up in the middle of the night and took my son from my side, while your female servant slept, and laid him in her bosom, and laid her dead child in my bosom.
1Kings 3:21 “And I rose up in the morning to nurse my son and saw he was dead. But I looked at him closely in the morning, and saw he was not my son whom I had borne.”
1Kings 3:22 And the other woman said, “No! But the living one is my son, and the dead one is your son.” And the first woman said, “No! For the dead one is your son, and the living one is my son.” And they spoke before the sovereign.
1Kings 3:23 And the sovereign said, “The one says, ‘This is my son, who lives, and your son is the dead one,’ while the other says, ‘No! For your son is the dead one, and my son is the living one.’ ”
1Kings 3:24 And the sovereign said, “Bring me a sword.” So they brought a sword before the sovereign.
1Kings 3:25 And the sovereign said, “Divide the living child in two, and give half to one, and half to the other.”
1Kings 3:26 And the woman whose son was living spoke to the sovereign, for she was overcome with compassion for her son. And she said, “O my master, give her the living child, and by no means kill him!” But the other said, “Let him be neither mine nor yours, but divide him.”
1Kings 3:27 And the sovereign answered and said, “Give the first woman the living child, and by no means kill him – she is his mother.”
1Kings 3:28 And all Yashara'Al heard of the right-ruling which the sovereign had rendered. And they feared the sovereign, for they saw that the wisdom of Alahiym was in him to do right-ruling.
1Kings 4:1 And it came to be that Sovereign Shalamah was sovereign over all Yashara'Al.
1Kings 4:2 And these were his chief officials: AuzarYahu son of Tsaduq, the priest;
1Kings 4:3 Aliycharaph and AchYahu, sons of Shisha, scribes; Yahushaphat son of Achiylud, the recorder;
1Kings 4:4 and BanYahu son of YahuYadau, over the army; and Tsaduq and Abiythar, the priests;
1Kings 4:5 and AuzarYahu son of Nathan, over the officers; Zabud son of Nathan, a priest, friend of the sovereign;
1Kings 4:6 and Achishar, over the household; and Adaniram son of Aubad, over the compulsory labor.
1Kings 4:7 And Shalamah had twelve governors over all Yashara'Al, who provided food for the sovereign and his household – each one made provision for one month of the year –
1Kings 4:8 and these were their names: Ban-Chur, in the mountains of Aphariym;
1Kings 4:9 Ban-Daqar, in Maqats and Shaulbiym and Biyth Shamash and Ailun Biyth Chanan;
1Kings 4:10 Ban-Chasad in Arabuth, Shakah and all the land of Chaphar were his;
1Kings 4:11 Ban-Abiynadab, all the height of Dar, Taphath the daughter of Shalamah became his wife;
1Kings 4:12 Ba'auna son of Achiylud, in Thau'nak and Magadu, and all Biyth Shan, which is beside Tsarathanah below Yazarau'Al, from Biyth Shan to Abal Machulah, as far as the other side of Yaqna'aum;
1Kings 4:13 Ban-Gabar, in Ramath Gal'aud, the towns of Ya’ir son of Manashah in Gal'aud were his; the portion of Argab in Bashan, sixty large cities with walls and bronze gate-bars, were his;
1Kings 4:14 Achiynadab son of Auda, in Machaniym;
1Kings 4:15 Achiy'mauts in Naphthaliy; he also took Bashamath the daughter of Shalamah as wife;
1Kings 4:16 Bau'nah son of Chushiy, in Ashar and in Auluth;
1Kings 4:17 Yahushaphat son of Pharuch, in Yash'shakar;
1Kings 4:18 Shamauiy son of Ala, in Banyaman;
1Kings 4:19 Gabar son of Ariy, in the land of Gal'aud, in the land of Sichun sovereign of the Amariy and of Aug sovereign of Bashan, and one governor was in the land.
1Kings 4:20 Yahudah and Yashara'Al were as numerous as the sand by the sea, eating and drinking and rejoicing.
1Kings 4:21 And Shalamah was ruling over all reigns from the River to the land of the Phalashthiym, as far as the border of Matsriym. They did taskwork and served Shalamah all the days of his life.
1Kings 4:22 And Shalamah’s food supply for one day was thirty kar of fine flour, and sixty kar of meal,
1Kings 4:23 ten fatted cattle and twenty cattle from the pastures, and one hundred sheep, besides deer, and gazelles, and roebucks, and fatted fowl.
1Kings 4:24 For he was ruling over all on this side of the River from Thaphsach even to Auzah, over all the sovereigns on this side of the River. And he had peace on all sides round about him.
1Kings 4:25 And Yahudah and Yashara'Al dwelt safely, each man under his vine and his fig tree, from Dan as far as Bar Shabau, all the days of Shalamah.
1Kings 4:26 And Shalamah had forty thousand stalls of horses for his chariots, and twelve thousand horsemen.
1Kings 4:27 And these governors, each one in his month, provided food for Sovereign Shalamah and for all who came to the table of Sovereign Shalamah. There was no lack in their supply.
1Kings 4:28 They also brought barley and straw to the appointed place, for the horses and steeds, each one according to his right-ruling.
1Kings 4:29 And Alahiym gave Shalamah exceeding great wisdom and understanding, and largeness of heart like the sand on the seashore.
1Kings 4:30 And Shalamah’s wisdom excelled the wisdom of all the men of the East and all the wisdom of Matsriym.
1Kings 4:31 For he was wiser than all men, than Aithan the Azrachiy, and Hiyman, and Kalkal, and Dardau, the sons of Machul. And his name was in all the nations round about.
1Kings 4:32 And he spoke three thousand proverbs, and his songs were one thousand and five.
1Kings 4:33 And he spoke of trees, from the cedar tree of Labanun even to the hyssop that springs out of the wall. And he spoke of beasts, and of birds, and of creeping creatures, and of fish.
1Kings 4:34 And there came from all peoples, from all the sovereigns of the earth who had heard of his wisdom, to hear the wisdom of Shalamah.
1Kings 5:1 And Chiram sovereign of Tsur sent his servants to Shalamah, because he heard that they had anointed him sovereign in place of his father, for Chiram had always loved Dud.
1Kings 5:2 And Shalamah sent to Chiram, saying,
1Kings 5:3 “You know my father Dud was unable to build a house for the Name of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 his Alahiym because of the battles which were all around him, until 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 put them under the soles of his feet.
1Kings 5:4 “But now 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 my Alahiym has given me rest all around, there is neither adversary nor evil incident.
1Kings 5:5 “And see, I intend to build a house for the Name of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 my Alahiym, as 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 spoke to my father Dud, saying, ‘Your son, whom I set on your throne in your place, he does build the house for My Name.’
1Kings 5:6 “And now, command that they cut down cedars for me from Labanun. And let my servants be with your servants, and let me pay you wages for your servants according to whatever you say. For you know there is none among us who knows to cut timber like the Tsadaniym.”
1Kings 5:7 And it came to be, when Chiram heard the words of Shalamah, that he rejoiced greatly and said, “Blessed be 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 this day, for He has given Dud a wise son over this great people!”
1Kings 5:8 And Chiram sent to Shalamah, saying, “I have heard that which you sent me. Let me do all you desire concerning the cedar and cypress logs.
1Kings 5:9 “Let my servants bring them down from Labanun to the sea, then I put them in rafts by sea to the place you direct me. And I shall spread them out there, then you take them up, while you do my desire by giving food for my household.”
1Kings 5:10 And Chiram gave Shalamah cedar and cypress logs – all his desire.
1Kings 5:11 And Shalamah gave Chiram twenty thousand kar of wheat as food for his household, and twenty kar of pressed oil. Thus Shalamah gave to Chiram year by year.
1Kings 5:12 And 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 gave Shalamah wisdom, as He promised him. And there was peace between Chiram and Shalamah, and the two of them made a covenant.
1Kings 5:13 And Sovereign Shalamah raised up compulsory labor out of all Yashara'Al. And the compulsory labor was thirty thousand men.
1Kings 5:14 And he sent them to Labanun, ten thousand a month by courses – they were one month in Labanun, two months at home. And Adaniram was over the compulsory labor.
1Kings 5:15 And Shalamah had seventy thousand bearing burdens, and eighty thousand hewing stone in the mountains,
1Kings 5:16 besides three thousand three hundred from the chiefs of Shalamah’s deputies who were over the work, those ruling over the people who labored in the work.
1Kings 5:17 And the sovereign commanded, and they brought large stones, precious stones, to lay the foundation of the House with hewn stones.
1Kings 5:18 And Shalamah’s builders, and Chiram’s builders, and the men of Gabaliym did hew, and prepared timber and stones to build the House.
1Kings 6:1 And it came to be, in the four hundred and eightieth year after the children of Yashara'Al had come out of the land of Matsriym, in the fourth year of the reign of Shalamah over Yashara'Al, in the month of Zu, which is the second month, that he began to build the House of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄.
1Kings 6:2 And the house which Sovereign Shalamah built for 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 was sixty cubits long, and twenty wide, and thirty cubits high.
1Kings 6:3 And the porch at the front of the Hikal of the House was twenty cubits long, according to the breadth of the House, and its width ten cubits, from the front of the House.
1Kings 6:4 And he made for the House windows with narrowed frames.
1Kings 6:5 And against the wall of the House he built rooms all around, against the walls of the House, all around the Hikal and the Speaking Place. Thus he made side rooms all around.
1Kings 6:6 The lowest side room was five cubits wide, and the middle one was six cubits wide, and the third one was seven cubits wide; for he made narrow ledges around the outside of the House, so as not to lay hold on the walls of the House.
1Kings 6:7 And the House, when it was being built, was built with finished stone made ready beforehand, so that no hammer or chisel or any iron tool was heard in the House while it was being built.
1Kings 6:8 The doorway for the middle side room was on the right side of the House. And they went up by stairs to the middle side rooms, and from the middle to the third.
1Kings 6:9 So he built the House and completed it, and he paneled the House with beams and boards of cedar.
1Kings 6:10 And he built the side rooms of the structure against all the House, each five cubits high, and they were fastened to the House with cedar beams.
1Kings 6:11 And the word of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 came to Shalamah, saying,
1Kings 6:12 “This House which you are building – if you walk in My laws, and do My right-rulings, and shall guard all My commands and walk in them, then I shall confirm My word with you, which I spoke to your father Dud,
1Kings 6:13 and shall dwell in the midst of the children of Yashara'Al, and not forsake My people Yashara'Al.”
1Kings 6:14 So Shalamah built the House and completed it.
1Kings 6:15 And he built the walls of the House inside with cedar boards, from the floor of the House to the ceiling he paneled them on the inside with wood, and covered the floor of the House with planks of cypress.
1Kings 6:16 And he built twenty cubits at the rear of the House, from floor to the walls, with cedar boards. And he built it inside as the Speaking Place, as the Most Set-apart Place.
1Kings 6:17 And the House was forty cubits, it is the Hikal before it.
1Kings 6:18 And the cedar for the House inside was carved with ornaments and open flowers; all was cedar, not a stone was seen.
1Kings 6:19 And he prepared the Speaking Place in the midst of the House, to place the ark of the covenant of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 there.
1Kings 6:20 And the front of the Speaking Place was twenty cubits long, and twenty cubits wide, and twenty cubits high. And he overlaid it with refined gold, and overlaid the altar of cedar.
1Kings 6:21 And Shalamah overlaid the inside of the House with refined gold, and made gold chains pass over the front of the Speaking Place, and overlaid it with gold.
1Kings 6:22 Thus he overlaid the entire House with gold, until the entire House was completed. And the entire altar that was by the Speaking Place he overlaid with gold.
1Kings 6:23 And inside the Speaking Place he made two karabiym of olive wood, ten cubits high.
1Kings 6:24 And one wing of the karub was five cubits, and the other wing of the karub five cubits – ten cubits from the tip of one wing to the tip of the other.
1Kings 6:25 And the other karub was ten cubits. Both karabiym were of the same size and shape.
1Kings 6:26 The height of one karub was ten cubits, and so was the other karub.
1Kings 6:27 And he placed the karabiym in the midst of the inner house. And they stretched out the wings of the karabiym so that the wing of the one touched one wall, and the wing of the other karub touched the other wall. And their wings touched each other in the middle of the room.
1Kings 6:28 And he overlaid the karabiym with gold.
1Kings 6:29 And he carved all the walls of the House all around, both inside and outside, with carved figures of karabiym, and palm trees, and open flowers.
1Kings 6:30 And he overlaid the floor of the House with gold, inside and outside.
1Kings 6:31 And for the entrance of the Speaking Place he made doors of olive wood: the lintel, doorposts, a fifth.
1Kings 6:32 And the two doors were of olive wood. And he carved on them figures of karabiym, and palm trees, and open flowers, and overlaid them with gold. And he spread the gold on the karabiym and on the palm trees.
1Kings 6:33 And so he made doorposts for the door of the Hikal of olive wood – a fourth part.
1Kings 6:34 And the two doors were of cypress wood, the two leaves of the one folded, and two leaves of the other door folded.
1Kings 6:35 And he carved karabiym, and palm trees, and open flowers, and overlaid them with gold laid smoothly on the carved work.
1Kings 6:36 And he built the inner courtyard with three rows of hewn stone and a row of cedar beams.
1Kings 6:37 In the fourth year the foundation of the House of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 was laid, in the month Zu.
1Kings 6:38 And in the eleventh year, in the month Bul, the eighth month, the house was completed in all its matters and according to all its plans. Thus he built it for seven years.
1Kings 7:1 And Shalamah built his own house for thirteen years, and he completed his entire house.
1Kings 7:2 And he built the house of the forest of Labanun. It was one hundred cubits long, and fifty cubits wide, and thirty cubits high, with four rows of cedar columns, and cedar beams on the columns.
1Kings 7:3 And it was paneled with cedar above the beams that were on forty-five columns, fifteen to a row.
1Kings 7:4 And there were windows with narrowed frames in three rows, and window was opposite window, three times.
1Kings 7:5 And all the doorways and doorposts had square frames. And window was opposite window, three times.
1Kings 7:6 And he made the porch of the columns, fifty cubits long and thirty cubits wide. And the porch was in front of them, and the columns and the roof was in front of them.
1Kings 7:7 And he made a hall for the throne, the Hall of Right-ruling, where he ruled. And it was paneled with cedar from floor to floor.
1Kings 7:8 And the house where he was to dwell, in the other courtyard, within the hall was of like workmanship. And Shalamah made a house like this hall for Pharauh’s daughter, whom he had taken.
1Kings 7:9 All these were of precious stone hewn to size, sawed with a saw, inside and out, from the foundation to the coping, and also on the outside to the great courtyard.
1Kings 7:10 And the foundation was of precious stone, large stones, stones of ten cubits and stones of eight cubits.
1Kings 7:11 And above were precious stones, hewn to size, and cedar wood.
1Kings 7:12 So the great courtyard all around had three rows of hewn stones and a row of cedar beams, as was the inner courtyard of the House of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 and the porch of the House.
1Kings 7:13 And Sovereign Shalamah sent and brought Chiram from Tsar.
1Kings 7:14 He was the son of a widow from the tribe of Naphthaliy, and his father was a man of Tsariy, a bronze worker. And he was filled with wisdom and understanding and skill in working with all kinds of bronze work. So he came to Sovereign Shalamah and did all his work.
1Kings 7:15 And he cast two columns of bronze, each one eighteen cubits high, and a line of twelve cubits measured the circumference of each.
1Kings 7:16 And he made two capitals of cast bronze, to put on the tops of the columns – the height of one capital was five cubits, and the height of the other capital was five cubits –
1Kings 7:17 a lattice network, with wreaths of chainwork, for the capitals which were on top of the columns, seven chains for one capital and seven for the other capital.
1Kings 7:18 And he made the columns, and two rows of pomegranates above the network all around to cover the capitals that were on top, and so he did for the other capital.
1Kings 7:19 And the capitals that were on top of the columns in the hall were in the shape of lilies, four cubits.
1Kings 7:20 And there were capitals above also on the two columns, by the bulge which was next to the network. And the pomegranates were two hundred, in rows on each of the capitals all around.
1Kings 7:21 And he set up the columns by the porch of the Hikal. And he set up the column on the right and called its name Yakin, and he set up the column on the left and called its name Ba'auz.
1Kings 7:22 And on the top of the columns was lily work. Thus the work of the columns was completed.
1Kings 7:23 And he made the Sea of cast metal, ten cubits from one rim to the other, round all about, and five cubits high, and a line of thirty cubits measured around it.
1Kings 7:24 And below its rim were ornaments all around, ten to a cubit, all the way around the Sea. The ornaments were cast in two rows when it was cast.
1Kings 7:25 It stood on twelve oxen, three facing north, and three facing west, and three facing south, and three facing east. And the Sea was set upon them, and all their back parts were inward.
1Kings 7:26 And it was a handbreadth thick, and its rim was shaped like the rim of a cup, like a lily blossom. It held two thousand baths.
1Kings 7:27 And he made ten stands of bronze, each stand was four cubits long, and four cubits wide, and three cubits high.
1Kings 7:28 And this is how the stands were made: They had side panels, and the side panels were between frames,
1Kings 7:29 and on the side panels that were between the frames were lions, oxen, and karabiym, and a pedestal above on the frame. Below the lions and oxen were wreaths of beaten work.
1Kings 7:30 And each stand had four bronze wheels and axles of bronze, and its four feet had supports. Under the basin were cast supports beside each wreath.
1Kings 7:31 And its opening inside the crown at the top was one cubit. And the opening was round, like the work of the pedestal, one and a half cubits. And also on the opening were engravings, but the side panels were square, not round.
1Kings 7:32 And the four wheels were under the side panels, and the axles of the wheels were joined to the stand, and the height of a wheel was one and a half cubits.
1Kings 7:33 And the wheels were made like chariot wheels. Their axle pins, and their rims, and their spokes, and their hubs were all cast.
1Kings 7:34 And there were four supports at the four corners of each stand, its supports were of the stand itself.
1Kings 7:35 And on the top of the stand, half a cubit in height – round all around. And on the top of the stand, its flanges and its side panels were of the same.
1Kings 7:36 And on the plates of its flanges and on its side panels he engraved karabiym, lions, and palm trees, according to the clear space on each, with wreaths all around.
1Kings 7:37 He made the ten stands like this: all of them were of one mould, one measure, and one shape.
1Kings 7:38 And he made ten basins of bronze; each basin contained forty baths, and each basin was four cubits, one basin on each of the ten stands.
1Kings 7:39 And he put five stands on the right side of the house, and five on the left side of the house, and he put the Sea on the right side of the house to the east, facing the south.
1Kings 7:40 And Chiram made the pots and the shovels and the bowls. And Chiram completed doing all the work that he was to do for Sovereign Shalamah on the House of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 :
1Kings 7:41 the two columns, and the bowl-shaped capitals that were on top of the columns, and the two networks covering the two bowl-shaped capitals which were on top of the columns;
1Kings 7:42 and the four hundred pomegranates for the two networks, two rows of pomegranates for each network to cover the two bowl-shaped capitals that were on top of the columns;
1Kings 7:43 and the ten stands, and the ten basins on the stands;
1Kings 7:44 and the one Sea, and twelve oxen under the Sea;
1Kings 7:45 and the pots, and the shovels, and the bowls. And all these utensils which Chiram made for Sovereign Shalamah for the House of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 were of polished bronze.
1Kings 7:46 The sovereign had them cast in clay in the district of Yardan between Sakuth and Tsarathan.
1Kings 7:47 And Shalamah left all the utensils unweighed, because they were many, nor was the weight of the bronze searched out.
1Kings 7:48 So Shalamah made all the utensils for the House of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 : the altar of gold, and the table of gold on which was the showbread;
1Kings 7:49 and the lampstands of refined gold, five on the right side and five on the left in front of the Speaking Place, with the flowers and the lamps and the snuffers of gold;
1Kings 7:50 and the basins, and the snuffers, and the bowls, and the ladles, and the fire holders of refined gold, and the hinges of gold, both for the doors of the inner house, the Most Set-apart Place, and for the doors of the house of the Hikal.
1Kings 7:51 Thus all the work which Sovereign Shalamah had done for the House of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 was completed. And Shalamah brought in the set-apart items of his father Dud: the silver and the gold and the utensils, and he put them in the treasuries of the House of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄.
1Kings 8:1 Then Shalamah assembled the elders of Yashara'Al and all the heads of the tribes, the chief fathers of the children of Yashara'Al, to Sovereign Shalamah in Yarushalam, to bring up the ark of the covenant of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 from the City of Dud, which is Tsiyun.
1Kings 8:2 And all the men of Yashara'Al assembled to Sovereign Shalamah at the festival in the month of Athaniym, which is the seventh month.
1Kings 8:3 And all the elders of Yashara'Al came, and the priests took up the ark,
1Kings 8:4 and brought up the ark of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, and the Tent of Meeting, and all the set-apart utensils that were in the Tent. And the priests and the Luiym brought them up,
1Kings 8:5 and Sovereign Shalamah, and all the congregation of Yashara'Al who had assembled with him, were with him before the ark, slaughtering so many sheep and cattle, that they could not be counted or numbered.
1Kings 8:6 And the priests brought in the ark of the covenant of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 to its place, into the Speaking Place of the House, to the Most Set-apart Place, under the wings of the karabiym,
1Kings 8:7 for the karabiym spread two wings over the place of the ark, and the karabiym covered over the ark and its poles.
1Kings 8:8 And the poles extended so that the ends of the poles were seen from the set-apart place, in front of the Speaking Place, but they were not seen from outside. And they are there to this day.
1Kings 8:9 There was naught in the ark, only the two tablets of stone which Mashah put there at Charab, where 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 made a covenant with the children of Yashara'Al, when they came out of the land of Matsriym.
1Kings 8:10 And it came to be, when the priests came out of the Set-apart Place, that the cloud filled the House of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄,
1Kings 8:11 so that the priests were unable to stand and perform the service because of the cloud, for the esteem of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 filled the House of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄.
1Kings 8:12 And Shalamah said, “ 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 has said He would dwell in the dark cloud.
1Kings 8:13 I have indeed built You an exalted house, an established place for You to dwell in forever.”
1Kings 8:14 And the sovereign turned around and blessed all the assembly of Yashara'Al, while all the assembly of Yashara'Al was standing.
1Kings 8:15 And he said, “Blessed be 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 Alahiym of Yashara'Al, who spoke with His mouth to my father Dud, and with His hand has filled it, saying,
1Kings 8:16 ‘Since the day I brought My people Yashara'Al out of Matsriym, I have chosen no city from any tribe of Yashara'Al in which to build a house for My Name to be there, but I chose Dud to be over My people Yashara'Al.’
1Kings 8:17 “And it was in the heart of my father Dud to build a house for the Name of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 Alahiym of Yashara'Al.
1Kings 8:18 “But 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 said to my father Dud, ‘Because it has been in your heart to build a house for My Name, you did well that it was in your heart.
1Kings 8:19 ‘Only, you do not build the house, but your son, who is coming from your loins, he does build the house for My Name.’
1Kings 8:20 “Now 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 has established His word which He spoke, and I have been raised up instead of my father Dud, and sit on the throne of Yashara'Al, as 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 promised, and built a house for the Name of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 Alahiym of Yashara'Al,
1Kings 8:21 and have appointed there a place for the ark, wherein is the covenant of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 which He made with our fathers, when He brought them out of the land of Matsriym.”
1Kings 8:22 And Shalamah stood before the altar of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 in front of all the assembly of Yashara'Al, and spread out his hands toward the shamiym,
1Kings 8:23 and said, “ 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 Alahiym of Yashara'Al, there is no Alahiym in the shamiym above or on earth below like You, guarding Your covenant and kindness with Your servants who walk before You with all their heart,
1Kings 8:24 who has guarded that which You did promise Your servant Dud my father. Indeed, You have both spoken with Your mouth and have filled it with Your hand, as it is this day.
1Kings 8:25 “And now, 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 Alahiym of Yashara'Al, guard what You promised Your servant Dud my father, saying, ‘There is not to cease a man of yours before Me, sitting on the throne of Yashara'Al – only, if your sons guard their way, to walk before Me as you have walked before Me.’
1Kings 8:26 “And now, O Alahiym of Yashara'Al, please let Your word come true which You have spoken to Your servant Dud my father.
1Kings 8:27 “For is it true: Alahiym dwells on the earth? See, the shamiym and the shamiym of the shamiym are unable to contain You, how much less this House which I have built!
1Kings 8:28 “Yet, shall You turn to the prayer of Your servant and his supplication, O 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 my Alahiym, and listen to the cry and the prayer which Your servant is praying before You today?
1Kings 8:29 “For Your eyes to be open toward this House night and day, toward the place of which You said, ‘My Name is there,’ to listen to the prayer which Your servant makes toward this place.
1Kings 8:30 “Then, shall You hear the supplication of Your servant and of Your people Yashara'Al when they pray toward this place, when You hear in Your dwelling place, in the shamiym? And shall You hear, and forgive?
1Kings 8:31 “If anyone sins against his neighbor, and he has lifted up an oath on him, to cause him to swear, and comes and swears before Your altar in this House,
1Kings 8:32 then hear in the shamiym, and act and rightly rule Your servants, declaring the wrongdoer wrong, bringing his way on his head, and declaring the righteous right by giving him according to his righteousness.
1Kings 8:33 “When Your people Yashara'Al are smitten before an enemy, because they have sinned against You, and they shall turn back to You and confess Your Name, and pray and make supplication to You in this House,
1Kings 8:34 then hear in the shamiym, and forgive the sin of Your people Yashara'Al, and bring them back to the land which You gave to their fathers.
1Kings 8:35 “When the shamiym are shut up and there is no rain because they sin against You, when they pray toward this place and confess Your Name, and turn from their sin because You afflict them,
1Kings 8:36 then hear in the shamiym, and forgive the sin of Your servants, Your people Yashara'Al – for You teach them the good way in which they should walk – and shall give rain on Your land which You have given to Your people as an inheritance.
1Kings 8:37 “When there is scarcity of food in the land; when there is pestilence, blight, mildew, locusts, grasshoppers; when their enemy distresses them in the land of their cities; any plague, any sickness,
1Kings 8:38 whatever prayer, whatever supplication made by anyone of all Your people Yashara'Al, each knowing the plague of his own heart, and shall spread out his hands toward this House,
1Kings 8:39 then hear in the shamiym, Your dwelling place, and forgive, and act, and render unto everyone according to all his ways, whose heart You know. Because You – You alone – know the hearts of all the sons of men,
1Kings 8:40 so that they fear You all the days that they live in the land which You gave to our fathers.
1Kings 8:41 “Also, concerning a foreigner, who is not of Your people Yashara'Al, but has come from a far land for Your Name’s sake –
1Kings 8:42 since they hear of Your great Name and Your strong hand and Your outstretched arm – and he shall come and pray toward this House,
1Kings 8:43 hear in the shamiym Your dwelling place, and do according to all for which the foreigner calls to You, so that all peoples of the earth know Your Name and fear You, as do Your people Yashara'Al, and know that this House which I have built is called by Your Name.
1Kings 8:44 “When Your people go out to battle against their enemy, in the way that You send them, and they shall pray to 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 toward the city which You have chosen and toward the House which I have built for Your Name,
1Kings 8:45 then shall You hear in the shamiym their prayer and their supplication, and maintain their cause?
1Kings 8:46 “When they sin against You – for there is no one who does not sin – and You become enraged with them and give them to the enemy, and they take them captive to the land of the enemy, far or near;
1Kings 8:47 and they shall turn back unto their heart in the land where they have been taken captive, and shall turn, and make supplication to You in the land of those who took them captive, saying, ‘We have sinned and acted crookedly, we have committed wrong,’
1Kings 8:48 and they shall turn back to You with all their heart and with all their being in the land of their enemies who led them away captive, and shall pray to You toward their land which You gave to their fathers, the city which You have chosen and the House which I have built for Your Name,
1Kings 8:49 then shall You hear in the shamiym Your dwelling place their prayer and their supplication, and maintain their cause,
1Kings 8:50 and forgive Your people who have sinned against You, and all their transgressions which they have transgressed against You? And give them compassion before those who took them captive, and they shall have compassion on them.
1Kings 8:51 ‘For they are Your people and Your inheritance, whom You brought out of Matsriym, out of the iron furnace.
1Kings 8:52 “Let Your eyes be open to the supplication of Your servant and the supplication of Your people Yashara'Al, to listen to them whenever they call to You.
1Kings 8:53 “For You have separated them unto Yourself for an inheritance, out of all the peoples of the earth, as You spoke by the hand of Your servant Mashah, when You brought our fathers out of Matsriym, O Master 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄.”
1Kings 8:54 And it came to be, when Shalamah had ended praying all this prayer and supplication to 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, that he rose up from before the altar of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, from kneeling on his knees with his hands spread up to the shamiym.
1Kings 8:55 And he stood and blessed all the assembly of Yashara'Al with a loud voice, saying,
1Kings 8:56 “Blessed be 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, who has given rest to His people Yashara'Al, according to all that He promised. There has not failed one word of all His good word, which He promised through His servant Mashah.
1Kings 8:57 “ 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 our Alahiym is with us as He was with our fathers – He does not leave us nor forsake us –
1Kings 8:58 to incline our hearts to Himself, to walk in all His ways, and to guard His commands and His laws and His right- rulings, which He commanded our fathers.
1Kings 8:59 “And let these words of mine, with which I have made supplication before 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, be near 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 our Alahiym day and night, to maintain the cause of His servant and the cause of His people Yashara'Al, the matter of each day in its day,
1Kings 8:60 so that all the peoples of the earth might know that 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 is Alahiym, there is no one else.
1Kings 8:61 “Let your heart therefore be perfect to 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 our Alahiym, to walk in His laws and guard His commands, as at this day.”
1Kings 8:62 And the sovereign and all Yashara'Al with him made slaughterings before 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄.
1Kings 8:63 And Shalamah brought peace offerings, which he slaughtered to 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, twenty-two thousand bulls and one hundred and twenty thousand sheep. Thus the sovereign and all the children of Yashara'Al dedicated the House of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄.
1Kings 8:64 On that day the sovereign set apart the middle of the courtyard that was in front of the House of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, for there he made burnt offerings, and the grain offerings, and the fat of the peace offerings, because the bronze altar that was before 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 was too small to contain the burnt offerings, and the grain offerings, and the fat of the peace offerings.
1Kings 8:65 And Shalamah at that time observed the Festival, and all Yashara'Al with him, a great assembly from the entrance of Chamath to the valley of Matsriym, before 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 our Alahiym, seven days and seven days – fourteen days.
1Kings 8:66 On the eighth day he sent the people away. And they blessed the sovereign, and went to their tents rejoicing and glad of heart for all the goodness that 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 had done for His servant Dud, and for Yashara'Al His people.
1Kings 9:1 And it came to be, when Shalamah had finished building the House of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 and the house of the sovereign, and all the desire of Shalamah which he was pleased to do,
1Kings 9:2 that 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 appeared to Shalamah the second time, as He had appeared to him at Gabau‛un.
1Kings 9:3 And 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 said to him, “I have heard your prayer and your supplication that you have made before Me. I have set this house apart which you have built to put My Name there forever, and My eyes and My heart shall always be there.
1Kings 9:4 “And you, if you walk before Me as your father Dud walked, in integrity of heart and in uprightness, to do according to all that I have commanded you, if you guard My laws and My right-rulings,
1Kings 9:5 then I shall establish the throne of your reign over Yashara'Al forever, as I promised Dud your father, saying, ‘There is not to cease a man of yours on the throne of Yashara'Al.’
1Kings 9:6 “If you at all turn back, you or your sons, from following Me, and do not guard My commands, My laws, which I have set before you, but shall go and serve other mighty ones and bow yourselves to them,
1Kings 9:7 then I shall cut off Yashara'Al from the face of the soil which I have given them, and send away from My presence this house which I have set apart for My Name. And Yashara'Al shall be a proverb and a mockery among all the peoples.
1Kings 9:8 “And this house, which has been exalted, everyone who passes by it shall be astonished, and hiss, and say, ‘Why has 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 done thus to this land and to this house?’
1Kings 9:9 “Then they shall say, ‘Because they have forsaken 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 their Alahiym, who brought their fathers out of the land of Matsriym, and they embraced other mighty ones, and bowed themselves to them and served them. That is why 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 has brought all this evil on them.’ ”
1Kings 9:10 And it came to be, at the end of twenty years, that Shalamah had built the two houses, the House of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 and the house of the sovereign.
1Kings 9:11 Chiram the sovereign of Tsar had supplied Shalamah with cedar and cypress and gold, as much as he desired. Then Sovereign Shalamah gave Chiram twenty cities in the land of Galil.
1Kings 9:12 And Chiram came from Tsar to see the cities which Shalamah had given him, but they were not right in his eyes,
1Kings 9:13 and he said, “What are these cities you have given me, my brother?” And he called them the land of Kabul, as they are to this day.
1Kings 9:14 And Chiram sent the sovereign one hundred and twenty talents of gold.
1Kings 9:15 And this is the purpose of the compulsory labor which Sovereign Shalamah raised, to build the House of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, and his own house, and Malua, and the wall of Yarushalam, and Chatsar, and Magadu, and Gazar –
1Kings 9:16 Pharauh sovereign of Matsriym had gone up and taken Gazar and burned it with fire, and had slain the Kana'auniy who dwelt in the city, and had given it as a payment for the bride to his daughter, Shalamah’s wife –
1Kings 9:17 and Shalamah built Gazar, and Lower Biyth Charan,
1Kings 9:18 and Ba'aulath, and Thamar in the wilderness, in the land of Yahudah,
1Kings 9:19 and all the storage cities that Shalamah had, and cities for his chariots and cities for his cavalry, and whatever Shalamah desired to build in Yarushalam, and in Labanun, and in all the land of his rule.
1Kings 9:20 All the people who were left of the Amariy, the Chathiy, the Pharaziy, the Chuiy, and the Yabusiy, who were not of the children of Yashara'Al –
1Kings 9:21 their descendants who were left in the land after them, whom the children of Yashara'Al had not been able to destroy completely – from these Shalamah raised compulsory labor, as it is to this day.
1Kings 9:22 But Shalamah did not make slaves of the children of Yashara'Al, because they were men of battle, and his servants, and his rulers, and his officers, and commanders of his chariots, and his cavalry.
1Kings 9:23 These were the chiefs of the officials who were over the work of Shalamah: five hundred and fifty, who ruled over the people who did the work.
1Kings 9:24 But the daughter of Pharauh came up from the City of Dud to her house that he built for her. Then he built Malua.
1Kings 9:25 And three times a year Shalamah brought burnt offerings and peace offerings on the altar which he had built for 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, and he burned incense with that which was before 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 – thus gave completeness to the House.
1Kings 9:26 And Sovereign Shalamah built a fleet of ships at Autsiyun Gabar, which is near Aluth on the shore of the Sea of Reeds, in the land of Adum.
1Kings 9:27 And Chiram sent his servants with the fleet, seamen who knew the sea, to work with the servants of Shalamah.
1Kings 9:28 And they went to A'uphirah, and took four hundred and twenty talents of gold from there, and brought it to Sovereign Shalamah.
1Kings 10:1 And the sovereigness of Shaba heard of the report of Shalamah concerning the Name of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, and came to try him with hard questions.
1Kings 10:2 And she came to Yarushalamah with a very great company, with camels that bore spices, very much gold, and precious stones. And she came to Shalamah, and she spoke with him about all that was in her heart.
1Kings 10:3 And Shalamah answered all her questions. There was no matter hidden for the sovereign that he did not make known to her.
1Kings 10:4 And the sovereigness of Shaba saw all the wisdom of Shalamah, and the house that he had built,
1Kings 10:5 and the food on his table, and the seating of his servants, and the service of his waiters and their attire, and his cupbearers, and his burnt offerings which he offered in the House of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, and there was no more spirit in her.
1Kings 10:6 Then she said to the sovereign, “The word I heard in my own land about your words and your wisdom was true.
1Kings 10:7 “But I did not believe the words until I came and saw with my own eyes. And see, I have not been told the half! Your wisdom and prosperity exceed the report which I heard.
1Kings 10:8 “Blessed are your men and blessed are these your servants, who stand continually before you, who are hearing your wisdom!
1Kings 10:9 “Blessed be 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 your Alahiym, who delighted in you, to put you on the throne of Yashara'Al! Because 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 has loved Yashara'Al forever, therefore He made you sovereign, to do right-ruling and righteousness.”
1Kings 10:10 And she gave the sovereign one hundred and twenty talents of gold, and very many spices, and precious stones. Never again did so many spices come as the sovereigness of Shaba gave to Sovereign Shalamah.
1Kings 10:11 And also, the ships of Chiram, which brought gold from A'uphir, brought almagiym wood, a great many, and precious stones from A'uphir.
1Kings 10:12 And the sovereign made steps of the almagiym wood for the House of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 and for the sovereign’s house, also lyres and harps for singers. No such almagiym wood has come or been seen to this day.
1Kings 10:13 And Sovereign Shalamah gave the sovereigness of Shaba all she desired, whatever she asked, besides what he gave her according to the hand of Sovereign Shalamah. And she turned and went to her land, she and her servants.
1Kings 10:14 And the weight of gold that came to Shalamah yearly was six hundred and sixty-six talents of gold,
1Kings 10:15 besides that from men of travel, and the profit from traders, and from all the sovereigns of Aurab, and from the governors of the land.
1Kings 10:16 And Sovereign Shalamah made two hundred large shields of beaten gold – six hundred pieces of gold went into each shield;
1Kings 10:17 and three hundred shields of beaten gold – three maniym of gold went into each shield. And the sovereign put them in the House of the Forest of Labanun.
1Kings 10:18 And the sovereign made a great throne of ivory, and overlaid it with refined gold.
1Kings 10:19 The throne had six steps, and the top of the throne was round at the back, and there were armrests on either side of the place of the seat, and two lions stood beside the armrests.
1Kings 10:20 And twelve lions were standing there, one on each side of the six steps. The like of it was never made in any reign.
1Kings 10:21 And all the drinking vessels of Sovereign Shalamah were of gold, and all the vessels of the House of the Forest of Labanun were of refined gold – not of silver, for this was reckoned of little value in the days of Shalamah.
1Kings 10:22 For the sovereign had ships of Tharshish at sea with the fleet of Chiram. Once every three years the ships of Tharshish came bringing gold, and silver, ivory, and apes, and baboons.
1Kings 10:23 And Sovereign Shalamah was greater than any of the sovereigns of the earth in riches and wisdom.
1Kings 10:24 And all the earth sought the presence of Shalamah to hear his wisdom, which Alahiym had put in his heart.
1Kings 10:25 And they were each bringing his present: objects of silver and objects of gold, and garments, and armor, and spices, horses, and mules, the matter of a year by year.
1Kings 10:26 And Shalamah gathered chariots and horsemen, and he had one thousand four hundred chariots and twelve thousand horsemen, whom he stationed in the chariot cities and with the sovereign in Yarushalam.
1Kings 10:27 And the sovereign made silver as common in Yarushalam as stones, and he made cedars as plenty as the sycamores which are in the low country.
1Kings 10:28 And Shalamah had horses brought out from Matsriym and Quah; the sovereign’s merchants bought them in Quah at a price.
1Kings 10:29 And a chariot came up and went out from Matsriym for six hundred pieces of silver, and a horse one hundred and fifty. And so, by their hand, they brought them out to all the sovereigns of the Chathiy and the sovereigns of Aram.
1Kings 11:1 And Sovereign Shalamah loved many foreign women in addition to the daughter of Pharauh: Mu'abiyuth, Aumuniyuth, Adamiyth, Tsadaniyth, and Chathiyth women;
1Kings 11:2 from the nations of whom 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 had said to the children of Yashara'Al, “You do not go into them, and they do not go into you, for they shall certainly turn away your hearts after their mighty ones.” Shalamah clung to these in love.
1Kings 11:3 And he had seven hundred wives, princesses, and three hundred concubines. And his wives turned away his heart.
1Kings 11:4 And it came to be, when Shalamah was old, that his wives turned away his heart after other mighty ones. And his heart was not perfect with 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 his Alahiym, as was the heart of his father Duid.
1Kings 11:5 And Shalamah went after Aushtharath the mighty one of the Tsadaniym, and after Malkam the abomination of the Aumuniy.
1Kings 11:6 Thus Shalamah did evil in the eyes of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, and did not follow 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 completely, like his father Dud.
1Kings 11:7 Then Shalamah built a high place for Kamush the abomination of Mu'ab, on the hill that is east of Yarushalam, and for Malak the abomination of the children of Aumun.
1Kings 11:8 And so he did for all his foreign wives, who burned incense and slaughtered to their mighty ones.
1Kings 11:9 Therefore 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 was enraged with Shalamah, because his heart had turned away from 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 Alahiym of Yashara'Al, who had appeared to him twice,
1Kings 11:10 and had commanded him concerning this word, not to go after other mighty ones. But he did not guard what 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 had commanded.
1Kings 11:11 And 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 said to Shalamah, “Because you have done this, and have not guarded My covenant and My laws, which I have commanded you, I shall certainly tear the reign away from you and give it to your servant.
1Kings 11:12 “Only, I do not do it in your days, for the sake of your father Dud. Out of the hand of your son I shall tear it.
1Kings 11:13 “Only, I shall not tear away all the reign but give one tribe to your son for the sake of my servant Dud, and for the sake of Yarushalam which I have chosen.”
1Kings 11:14 And 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 raised up an adversary against Shalamah, Hadad the Adamiy. He was of the seed of the sovereign in Adum.
1Kings 11:15 And it came to be, when Dud was in Adum, and YahuAb the commander of the army had gone up to bury the slain, after he had smitten every male in Adum –
1Kings 11:16 YahuAb remained there with all Yashara'Al for six months, until every male in Adum was cut off –
1Kings 11:17 that Hadad fled to go to Matsriym, he and certain Adami'iym of his father’s servants with him, while Hadad was still a little child.
1Kings 11:18 And they arose from Madyan and came to Pharan, and took men with them from Pharan and came to Matsriym, to Pharauh sovereign of Matsriym, who gave him a house, and ordered food for him, and gave him land.
1Kings 11:19 And Hadad found much favor in the eyes of Pharauh, so that he gave him as wife the sister of his own wife, the sister of Sovereigness Thachphanis.
1Kings 11:20 And the sister of Thachphanis bore him Ganbath his son, whom Thachphanis weaned in Pharauh’s house. And Ganbath was in the house of Pharauh among the sons of Pharauh.
1Kings 11:21 And Hadad heard in Matsriym that Dud slept with his fathers, and that YahuAb the commander of the army was dead, and Hadad said to Pharauh, “Let me go to my land.”
1Kings 11:22 And Pharauh said to him, “But what have you lacked with me, that you are now seeking to go to your own land?” And he answered, “No, but please let me go.”
1Kings 11:23 And Alahiym raised up another adversary against him, Razun son of Alyadau who had fled from his master, Hadadauzar sovereign of Tsubah,
1Kings 11:24 and gathered men to him and became commander over a raiding band, when Dud slew those of Tsubah. And they went to Damashaq and dwelt there, and reigned in Damashaq.
1Kings 11:25 And he was an adversary of Yashara'Al all the days of Shalamah – besides the trouble that Hadad caused – and he was hostile to Yashara'Al and reigned over Aram.
1Kings 11:26 And a servant of Shalamah, Yarab'aum son of Nabat, an Aphrathiy from Tsaradah, whose mother’s name was Tsaru'auh, a widow, also lifted up a hand against the sovereign.
1Kings 11:27 And this is what caused him to lift up a hand against the sovereign: Shalamah had built Malua, repairing the breaks in the City of Dud his father.
1Kings 11:28 And the man Yarab'aum was a brave man. And Shalamah, seeing that the young man was doing his work well, made him the officer over all the compulsory labor of the house of YahuSaph.
1Kings 11:29 And it came to be at that time, when Yarab'aum went out of Yarushalam, that the prophet AchYahu the Shilaniy met him on the way. And he was wearing a new garment, and the two were alone in the field.
1Kings 11:30 And AchYahu took hold of the new garment that was on him, and tore it into twelve pieces,
1Kings 11:31 and said to Yarab'aum, “Take for yourself ten pieces, for thus said 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, the Alahiym of Yashara'Al, ‘See, I am tearing the reign out of the hand of Shalamah and shall give ten tribes to you,
1Kings 11:32 but he shall have one tribe for the sake of My servant Dud, and for the sake of Yarushalam, the city which I have chosen out of all the tribes of Yashara'Al.
1Kings 11:33 ‘Because they have forsaken Me, and bow themselves to Aushtharath the mighty one of the Tsadanin, to Kamush the mighty one of the Mu'abiy, and to Malkam the mighty one of the children of Aumun, and have not walked in My ways – to do what is right in My eyes, and My laws and My right-rulings, as did his father Dud.
1Kings 11:34 ‘But I do not take all the reign out of his hand, because I have made him ruler all the days of his life for the sake of My servant Dud, whom I chose because he guarded My commands and My laws.
1Kings 11:35 ‘And I shall take the reign out of his son’s hand and give it to you, the ten tribes.
1Kings 11:36 ‘And to his son I give one tribe, so that My servant Duid shall always have a lamp before Me in Yarushalam, the city which I have chosen for Myself, to put My Name there.
1Kings 11:37 ‘So I take you, and you shall reign over all that your being desires, and you shall be sovereign over Yashara'Al.
1Kings 11:38 ‘And it shall be, if you obey all that I command you, and shall walk in My ways, and do what is right in My eyes, to guard My laws and My commands, as My servant Dud did, then I shall be with you and build for you a steadfast house, as I built for Dud, and shall give Yashara'Al to you.
1Kings 11:39 ‘And because of this I humble the seed of Dud, but not forever.’ ”
1Kings 11:40 And Shalamah sought to kill Yarab'aum, but Yarab'aum rose up and fled to Matsriym, to Shishaq sovereign of Matsriym, and was in Matsriym until the death of Shalamah.
1Kings 11:41 And the rest of the acts of Shalamah, all that he did, and his wisdom, are they not written in the book of the acts of Shalamah?
1Kings 11:42 And the days that Shalamah reigned in Yarushalam over all Yashara'Al was forty years.
1Kings 11:43 So Shalamah slept with his fathers, and was buried in the City of Dud his father, and Rachab'aum his son reigned in his place.
1Kings 12:1 And Rachab'aum went to Shakam, for all Yashara'Al had gone to Shakam to set him up to reign.
1Kings 12:2 And it came to be, when Yarab'aum son of Nabat heard this – he was still in Matsriym, for he had fled from the presence of Sovereign Shalamah and had been dwelling in Matsriym –
1Kings 12:3 that they sent and called him. And Yarab'aum and all the assembly of Yashara'Al came and spoke to Rachab'aum, saying,
1Kings 12:4 “Your father made our yoke hard, and now, lighten the hard service of your father, and his heavy yoke which he put on us, then we serve you.”
1Kings 12:5 And he said to them, “Go away for three days, then come back to me.” And the people went.
1Kings 12:6 Then Sovereign Rachab'aum consulted the elders who stood before his father Shalamah while he still lived, and he said, “What do you advise me to answer these people?”
1Kings 12:7 And they spoke to him, saying, “If you are a servant to these people today, and shall serve them, and shall answer them and speak good words to them, then they shall be your servants all the days.”
1Kings 12:8 But he ignored the advice the elders gave him, and consulted the young men who had grown up with him, who stood before him.
1Kings 12:9 And he said to them, “What advice do you give? How should we answer this people who have spoken to me, saying, ‘Lighten the yoke which your father put on us’?”
1Kings 12:10 And the young men who had grown up with him spoke to him, saying, “Say this to this people who have spoken to you, saying, ‘Your father made our yoke heavy, but you make it lighter on us.’ Say this to them, ‘My little finger is thicker than my father’s waist!
1Kings 12:11 ‘And now, my father laid a heavy yoke on you, but I add to your yoke; my father flogged you with whips, but I, I flog you with scourges!’ ”
1Kings 12:12 So Yarab'aum and all the people came to Rachab'aum the third day, as the sovereign had spoken, saying, “Come back to me the third day.”
1Kings 12:13 But the sovereign answered the people harshly, and ignored the advice which the elders had given him,
1Kings 12:14 and he spoke to them according to the advice of the young men, saying, “My father made your yoke heavy, but I add to your yoke; my father flogged you with whips, but I, I flog you with scourges!”
1Kings 12:15 So the sovereign did not listen to the people, for the turn of events was from 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, in order to establish His word, which 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 had spoken by AchYahu the Shilaniy to Yarab'aum son of Nabat.
1Kings 12:16 And all Yashara'Al saw that the sovereign did not listen to them. Then the people answered the sovereign, saying, “What portion do we have in Dud? And there is no inheritance in the son of Yashiy. To your mighty ones, O Yashara'Al! Now, see to your own house, O Dud!” So Yashara'Al went to their tents.
1Kings 12:17 But as for the children of Yashara'Al who dwelt in the cities of Yahudah, Rachab'aum reigned over them.
1Kings 12:18 And when Sovereign Rachab'aum sent Adaram, who was over the compulsory labor, all Yashara'Al stoned him with stones, and he died. And Sovereign Rachab'aum hastily mounted his chariot to flee to Yarushalam.
1Kings 12:19 Thus Yashara'Al revolted against the house of Dud to this day.
1Kings 12:20 And it came to be when all Yashara'Al heard that Yarab'aum had come back, they sent for him and called him to the congregation, and set him up to reign over all Yashara'Al. There was none who followed the house of Dud, except the tribe of Yahudah only.
1Kings 12:21 And Rachab'aum came to Yarushalam, and he assembled all the house of Yahudah with the tribe of Banyaman, one hundred and eighty thousand chosen brave men, to fight against the house of Yashara'Al, to bring back the reign to Rachab'aum son of Shalamah.
1Kings 12:22 But the word of Alahiym came to ShamauYahu the man of Alahiym, saying,
1Kings 12:23 “Speak to Rachab'aum son of Shalamah, sovereign of Yahudah, and to all the house of Yahudah and Banyamin, and to the rest of the people, saying,
1Kings 12:24 ‘Thus said 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, “Do not go up or fight against your brothers the children of Yashara'Al. Let every man return to his house, for this matter is from Me.” ’ ” So they obeyed the word of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, and turned back, according to the word of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄.
1Kings 12:25 And Yarab'aum built Shakam in the mountains of Aphariym, and dwelt there. And he went out from there and built Phanu'Al.
1Kings 12:26 And Yarab'aum said in his heart, “Now the reign shall return to the house of Dud.
1Kings 12:27 “If these people go up to do slaughterings in the House of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 at Yarushalam, then the heart of this people shall turn back to their master, Rachab'aum sovereign of Yahudah, and they shall slay me and go back to Rachab'aum sovereign of Yahudah.”
1Kings 12:28 So the sovereign took counsel and made two calves of gold, and said to the people, “It is too much for you to go up to Yarushalam. See, your mighty ones, O Yashara'Al, which brought you up from the land of Matsriym!”
1Kings 12:29 And he set up one in Biyth Al, and the other he put in Dan.
1Kings 12:30 And this matter became a sin, for the people went before the one as far as Dan.
1Kings 12:31 And he made the house of high places, and made priests from all sorts of people, who were not of the sons of Luiy.
1Kings 12:32 And Yarab'aum performed a festival on the fifteenth day of the eighth month, like the festival that was in Yahudah, and he offered on the altar. So he did at Biyth Al, slaughtering to the calves that he had made. And at Biyth Al he appointed the priests of the high places which he had made.
1Kings 12:33 And he made offerings on the altar which he had made at Biyth Al on the fifteenth day of the eighth month, in the month which he had devised in his own heart. And he performed a festival for the children of Yashara'Al, and offered on the altar and burned incense.
1Kings 13:1 And see, a man of Alahiym went from Yahudah to Biyth Al by the word of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, while Yarab'aum was standing by the altar to burn incense.
1Kings 13:2 And he cried out against the altar by the word of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, and said, “O altar, altar! Thus said 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, ‘See, a son is to be born to the house of Dud, Ya'ashYahu is his name. And on you he shall offer the priests of the high places who burn incense on you, and men’s bones be burned on you.’ ”
1Kings 13:3 And he gave a sign the same day, saying, “This is the sign which 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 has spoken: See, the altar is split apart, and the ashes on it is poured out.”
1Kings 13:4 And it came to be when Sovereign Yarab'aum heard the saying of the man of Alahiym, who cried out against the altar in Biyth Al, that he stretched out his hand from the altar, saying, “Seize him!” Then his hand, which he stretched out toward him, dried up, so that he was unable to bring it back to him.
1Kings 13:5 And the altar was split apart, and the ashes poured out from the altar, according to the sign which the man of Alahiym had given by the word of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄.
1Kings 13:6 And the sovereign answered and said to the man of Alahiym, “Please appease the face of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 your Alahiym, and pray for me, that my hand might be restored to me.” And the man of Alahiym appeased the face of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, and the sovereign’s hand was restored to him, and became as it was before.
1Kings 13:7 The sovereign then said to the man of Alahiym, “Come home with me and refresh yourself, and I give you a gift.”
1Kings 13:8 But the man of Alahiym said to the sovereign, “If you were to give me half your house, I do not go in with you, nor do I eat bread nor drink water in this place.
1Kings 13:9 “For so He commanded me by the word of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, saying, ‘Do not eat bread, nor drink water, nor return by the same way you came.’ ”
1Kings 13:10 So he went another way and did not return by the way he came to Biyth Al.
1Kings 13:11 And a certain old prophet was dwelling in Biyth Al, and his sons came and told him all the works that the man of Alahiym had done that day in Biyth Al, the words which he had spoken to the sovereign.
1Kings 13:12 And their father said to them, “Which way did he go?” And his sons had seen which way the man of Alahiym went who came from Yahudah.
1Kings 13:13 And he said to his sons, “Saddle the donkey for me.” And they saddled the donkey for him, and he rode on it,
1Kings 13:14 and went after the man of Alahiym, and found him sitting under a terebinth. And he said to him, “Are you the man of Alahiym who came from Yahudah?” And he said, “I am.”
1Kings 13:15 And he said to him, “Come home with me and eat bread.”
1Kings 13:16 And he said, “I am not able to return with you or to go in with you, nor am I to eat bread or drink water with you in this place.
1Kings 13:17 “For word came to me by the word of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, ‘Do not eat bread nor drink water there, nor return by going the way you came.’ ”
1Kings 13:18 And he said to him, “I too am a prophet like you, and a messenger spoke to me by the word of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, saying, ‘Bring him back with you to your house, and let him eat bread and drink water.’ ” But he lied to him.
1Kings 13:19 So he turned back with him, and ate bread in his house, and drank water.
1Kings 13:20 And it came to be, as they sat at the table, that the word of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 came to the prophet who had brought him back,
1Kings 13:21 and he cried out to the man of Alahiym who came from Yahudah, saying, “Thus said 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, ‘Because you have rebelled against the mouth of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, and have not guarded the command which 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 your Alahiym commanded you,
1Kings 13:22 and turned back, and ate bread, and drank water in the place of which He said to you, “Do not eat bread nor drink water,” your body shall not enter the burying-place of your fathers.’ ”
1Kings 13:23 And it came to be, after he had eaten bread and after he had drunk, that he saddled the donkey for him, for the prophet whom he had brought back.
1Kings 13:24 And he went, and a lion met him on the way and killed him. And his body was thrown on the way. And the donkey was standing by it, and the lion was standing by the body.
1Kings 13:25 And see, men were passing by and saw the body thrown on the way, while the lion was standing by the body. And they went and reported it in the city where the old prophet dwelt.
1Kings 13:26 And the prophet who had brought him back from the way heard it, and said, “It is the man of Alahiym who rebelled against the mouth of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, and 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 gave him to the lion, and it tore him apart and killed him, according to the word of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 which He spoke to him.”
1Kings 13:27 And he spoke to his sons, saying, “Saddle the donkey for me.” And they saddled it.
1Kings 13:28 So he went and found his body thrown on the way, and the donkey and the lion standing by the body. The lion had not eaten the body nor mauled the donkey.
1Kings 13:29 And the prophet lifted up the body of the man of Alahiym, and placed it on the donkey, and brought it back. And the old prophet came to the city to mourn, and to bury him,
1Kings 13:30 and he placed his body in his own tomb. And they lamented over him, saying, “Huiy, my brother!”
1Kings 13:31 And it came to be, after he had buried him, that he spoke to his sons, saying, “When I am dead, then you shall bury me in the tomb where the man of Alahiym is buried. Lay my bones beside his bones.
1Kings 13:32 “For the word which he cried out, by the word of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, against the altar in Biyth Al, and against all the houses of the high places which are in the cities of Shamarun, shall certainly come to be.”
1Kings 13:33 After this event Yarab'aum did not turn from his evil way, but again he made priests from all sorts of people for the high places. Whoever wished, he ordained, to become one of the priests of the high places.
1Kings 13:34 And this matter was the sin of the house of Yarab'aum, even to cut it off and destroy it from the face of the earth.
1Kings 14:1 At that time AbYahu the son of Yarab'aum became sick.
1Kings 14:2 And Yarab'aum said to his wife, “Please arise, and disguise yourself, so they do not know that you are the wife of Yarab'aum, and go to Shalah. See, AchYahu the prophet is there, who spoke to me of becoming sovereign over this people.
1Kings 14:3 “And you shall take with you ten loaves, and cakes, and a jar of honey, and go to him. Let him declare to you what becomes of the child.”
1Kings 14:4 And Yarab'aum’s wife did so, and rose up and went to Shalah, and came to the house of AchYahu. But AchYahu was unable to see, for his eyes had set because of his age.
1Kings 14:5 And 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 had said to AchYahu, “See, the wife of Yarab'aum is coming to ask you a word about her son, for he is sick. Speak to her thus and thus. For it shall be, when she comes in, that she makes herself strange.”
1Kings 14:6 And it came to be, when AchYahu heard the sound of her footsteps as she came through the door, he said, “Come in, wife of Yarab'aum. Why are you making yourself strange? And I have been sent to you with a hard word.
1Kings 14:7 Go, say to Yarab'aum, ‘Thus said 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 Alahiym of Yashara'Al, “Because I exalted you from among the people, and made you ruler over My people Yashara'Al,
1Kings 14:8 and tore the reign away from the house of Dud, and gave it to you – and you have not been as My servant Dud, who guarded My commands and who followed Me with all his heart, to do only what was right in My eyes,
1Kings 14:9 but you have done more evil than all who were before you, for you have gone and made for yourself other mighty ones and moulded images to provoke Me, and have cast Me behind your back –
1Kings 14:10 therefore, see, I am bringing evil to the house of Yarab'aum, and shall cut off from Yarab'aum every male in Yashara'Al, whether shut up or left at large, and sweep away the remnant of the house of Yarab'aum, as one sweeps away dung until it is all gone.
1Kings 14:11 Those of Yarab'aum who die in the city the dogs do eat, and those who die in the field the birds of the shamiym do eat, for 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 has spoken it!” ’
1Kings 14:12 “And you, arise, go to your house. When your feet enter the city, the child shall die.
1Kings 14:13 “And all Yashara'Al shall mourn for him and bury him, for he is the only one of Yarab'aum who shall come to the grave, because in him there is found a good report toward 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 Alahiym of Yashara'Al, in the house of Yarab'aum.
1Kings 14:14 “And 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 shall raise up for Himself a sovereign over Yashara'Al who cuts off the house of Yarab'aum, this day, and even now!
1Kings 14:15 “And 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 shall smite Yashara'Al, as a reed is shaken in the water, and shall pluck Yashara'Al from this good soil which He gave to their fathers, and shall scatter them beyond the River, because they made their Ashariym, provoking 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄,
1Kings 14:16 and He shall give Yashara'Al up, because of the sins of Yarab'aum, who sinned and who made Yashara'Al sin.”
1Kings 14:17 And the wife of Yarab'aum rose up and went, and came to Thartsathah. When she came to the threshold of the house, the child died.
1Kings 14:18 And they buried him, and all Yashara'Al lamented for him, according to the word of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 which He spoke through His servant AchYahu the prophet.
1Kings 14:19 And the rest of the acts of Yarab'aum, how he fought and how he reigned, see, they are written in the book of the annals of the sovereigns of Yashara'Al.
1Kings 14:20 And the days that Yarab'aum reigned was twenty-two years. So he slept with his fathers, and Nadab his son reigned in his place.
1Kings 14:21 Meanwhile Rachab'aum son of Shalamah reigned in Yahudah. Rachab'aum was forty-one years old when he became sovereign, and he reigned seventeen years in Yarushalam, the city which 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 had chosen out of all the tribes of Yashara'Al, to put His Name there. And his mother’s name was Na'aumah the Aumaniyth.
1Kings 14:22 And Yahudah did evil in the eyes of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, and they provoked Him to jealousy with their sins which they committed, more than all that their fathers had done.
1Kings 14:23 For they also built for themselves high places, and pillars, and Ashariym on every high hill and under every green tree.
1Kings 14:24 And there were also cult prostitutes in the land. They did according to all the abominations of the gentiles which 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 dispossessed before the children of Yashara'Al.
1Kings 14:25 And it came to be, in the fifth year of Sovereign Rachab'aum, that Shishaq sovereign of Matsriym came up against Yarushalam.
1Kings 14:26 And he took away the treasures of the House of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 and the treasures of the sovereign’s house, he even took away all. And he took away all the shields of gold which Shalamah had made.
1Kings 14:27 And Sovereign Rachab'aum made shields of bronze to replace them, and entrusted them into the hands of the chiefs of the guard, who guarded the entrance of the sovereign’s house.
1Kings 14:28 And it came to be, whenever the sovereign went into the House of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, the guards would bring them, then take them back into the guardroom.
1Kings 14:29 And the rest of the acts of Rachab'aum, and all that he did, are they not written in the book of the annals of the sovereigns of Yahudah?
1Kings 14:30 And there was fighting between Rachab'aum and Yarab'aum all the days.
1Kings 14:31 So Rachab'aum slept with his fathers, and was buried with his fathers in the City of Dud. And the name of his mother was Na'aumah the Aumaniyth. And AbYahu his son reigned in his place.
1Kings 15:1 And in the eighteenth year of Sovereign Yarab'aum son of Nabat, AbYahu became sovereign over Yahudah.
1Kings 15:2 He reigned three years in Yarushalam, and his mother’s name was Mau'kah the granddaughter of Abiyshalum.
1Kings 15:3 And he walked in all the sins of his father, which he had done before him, and his heart was not perfect to 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 his Alahiym, as was the heart of his father Dud.
1Kings 15:4 But for Dud’s sake 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 his Alahiym gave him a lamp in Yarushalam, to raise up his son after him and by establishing Yarushalam,
1Kings 15:5 for Dud did what was right in the eyes of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, and did not turn aside from all that He commanded him all the days of his life, except in the matter of A'urYahu the Chathiy.
1Kings 15:6 And there was fighting between Rachab'aum and Yarab'aum all the days of his life.
1Kings 15:7 And the rest of the acts of AbYahu, and all that he did, are they not written in the book of the annals of the sovereigns of Yahudah? And there was fighting between AbYahu and Yarab'aum.
1Kings 15:8 So AbYahu slept with his fathers, and they buried him in the City of Dud. And Asa his son reigned in his place.
1Kings 15:9 And in the twentieth year of Yarab'aum sovereign of Yashara'Al, Asa became sovereign over Yahudah.
1Kings 15:10 And he reigned forty-one years in Yarushalam, and his grandmother’s name was Mau'kah the granddaughter of Abiyshalum.
1Kings 15:11 And Asa did what was right in the eyes of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, as his father Dud had done,
1Kings 15:12 and put away the cult prostitutes from the land, and removed all the idols that his fathers had made.
1Kings 15:13 And he also removed Mau'kah his grandmother from being sovereigness mother, because she had made an abominable image for Asharah. And Asa cut down her abominable image and burned it by the valley Qadrun.
1Kings 15:14 But the high places were not removed. However, Asa’s heart was perfect with 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 all his days.
1Kings 15:15 And he brought into the House of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 the set-apart items of his father, and his own set-apart items: silver and gold and utensils.
1Kings 15:16 And there was fighting between Asa and Ba'ausha sovereign of Yashara'Al all their days.
1Kings 15:17 And Ba'ausha sovereign of Yashara'Al came up against Yahudah, and built Ramah, to keep anyone from going out or coming in to Asa sovereign of Yahudah.
1Kings 15:18 And Asa took all the silver and gold that was left in the treasuries of the House of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 and the treasuries of the sovereign’s house, and gave them into the hand of his servants. And Sovereign Asa sent them to Ban-Hadad son of Tabraman, son of Chaziyun, sovereign of Aram, who dwelt in Damashaq, saying,
1Kings 15:19 “Let there be a covenant between you and me, as there was between my father and your father. Look, I have sent you a present of silver and gold. Come, break your covenant with Ba'ausha sovereign of Yashara'Al, so that he withdraws from me.”
1Kings 15:20 And Ban-Hadad listened to Sovereign Asa, and sent the commanders of his armies against the cities of Yashara'Al, and smote Auiyun, and Dan, and Abal Biyth Mau'kah, and all Kanaruth, with all the land of Naphthaliy.
1Kings 15:21 And it came to be, when Ba'ausha heard it, that he stopped building Ramah, and remained in Thartsah.
1Kings 15:22 Then Sovereign Asa summoned all Yahudah – none was exempted – and they took away the stones and timber of Ramah, which Ba'ausha had used for building. And with them Sovereign Asa built Gabau of Banyaman, and Matsphah.
1Kings 15:23 And the rest of all the acts of Asa, and all his might, and all that he did, and the cities which he built, are they not written in the book of the annals of the sovereigns of Yahudah? But in the time of his old age he was diseased in his feet.
1Kings 15:24 So Asa slept with his fathers, and was buried with his fathers in the City of Dud his father. And Yahushaphat his son reigned in his place.
1Kings 15:25 And Nadab son of Yarab'aum became sovereign over Yashara'Al in the second year of Asa sovereign of Yahudah, and he reigned over Yashara'Al two years.
1Kings 15:26 And he did evil in the eyes of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, and walked in the way of his father, and in his sin by which he had made Yashara'Al sin.
1Kings 15:27 Then Ba'ausha son of AchYahu, of the house of Yash'shakar, conspired against him. And Ba'ausha smote him at Gabathun, which belonged to the Phalashthiym, for Nadab and all Yashara'Al had laid siege to Gabathun.
1Kings 15:28 And Ba'ausha killed him in the third year of Asa sovereign of Yahudah, and reigned in his place.
1Kings 15:29 And it came to be, when he became sovereign, that he smote all the house of Yarab'aum. He did not leave to Yarab'aum anyone breathing, until he had destroyed him, according to the word of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 which He had spoken by His servant AchYahu the Shilaniy,
1Kings 15:30 because of the sins of Yarab'aum, which he had sinned and by which he had made Yashara'Al sin, because of his provocation with which he had provoked 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 Alahiym of Yashara'Al.
1Kings 15:31 And the rest of the acts of Nadab, and all that he did, are they not written in the book of the annals of the sovereigns of Yashara'Al?
1Kings 15:32 And there was fighting between Asa and Ba'ausha sovereign of Yashara'Al all their days.
1Kings 15:33 In the third year of Asa sovereign of Yahudah, Ba'ausha son of AchYahu became sovereign over all Yashara'Al in Thartsah, and reigned twenty-four years.
1Kings 15:34 And he did evil in the eyes of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, and walked in the way of Yarab'aum, and in his sin by which he had made Yashara'Al sin.
1Kings 16:1 Then the word of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 came to Yahua son of Chananiy, against Ba'ausha, saying,
1Kings 16:2 “Because I raised you up out of the dust and made you ruler over My people Yashara'Al, but you walked in the way of Yarab'aum, and made My people Yashara'Al sin, to provoke Me with their sins,
1Kings 16:3 see, I am going to sweep away Ba'ausha and his house, and shall make your house like the house of Yarab'aum the son of Nabat.
1Kings 16:4 “Anyone belonging to Ba'ausha who dies in a city the dogs eat, and anyone belonging to him who dies in a field the birds of the shamiym eat.”
1Kings 16:5 And the rest of the acts of Ba'ausha, what he did, and his might, are they not written in the book of the annals of the sovereigns of Yashara'Al?
1Kings 16:6 So Ba'ausha slept with his fathers and was buried in Thartsah. And his son Alah reigned in his place.
1Kings 16:7 Moreover, the word of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 came by the prophet Yahua son of Chananiy against Ba'ausha and his house, because of all the evil that he did in the eyes of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 in provoking Him with the work of his hands, in being like the house of Yarab'aum, and because he smote them.
1Kings 16:8 In the twenty-sixth year of Asa sovereign of Yahudah, Alah son of Ba'ausha began to reign over Yashara'Al in Thartsah, two years.
1Kings 16:9 And his servant Zamariy, commander of half his chariots, conspired against him as he was in Thartsah drinking himself drunk in the house of Artsa, who was over his house in Thartsah.
1Kings 16:10 Then Zamariy came in and smote him and killed him in the twenty-seventh year of Asa sovereign of Yahudah, and reigned in his place.
1Kings 16:11 And it came to be, when he began to reign, as soon as he was seated on his throne, that he smote all the household of Ba'ausha. He did not leave him one male, neither of his relatives nor of his friends.
1Kings 16:12 So Zamariy destroyed the entire house of Ba'ausha, according to the word of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, which He spoke against Ba'ausha by Yahua the prophet,
1Kings 16:13 for all the sins of Ba'ausha and the sins of Alah his son, by which they had sinned and by which they had made Yashara'Al sin, in provoking 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 Alahiym of Yashara'Al with their worthlessnesses.
1Kings 16:14 And the rest of the acts of Alah, and all that he did, are they not written in the book of the annals of the sovereigns of Yashara'Al?
1Kings 16:15 In the twenty-seventh year of Asa sovereign of Yahudah, Zamariy reigned seven days in Thartsah. And the people were encamped against Gabathun, which belonged to the Phalashthiym.
1Kings 16:16 And the people who were encamped heard it said, “Zamariy has conspired and also smote the sovereign.” So all Yashara'Al set up Aumariy, the commander of the army, to reign over Yashara'Al that day in the camp.
1Kings 16:17 And Aumariy went up, and all Yashara'Al with him, from Gabathun, and they besieged Thartsah.
1Kings 16:18 And it came to be, when Zamariy saw that the city was captured, that he went into a high place of the sovereign’s house and burned the sovereign’s house down upon himself with fire, and died,
1Kings 16:19 because of the sins which he had sinned in doing evil in the eyes of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, in walking in the way of Yarab'aum, and in his sin which he had committed to make Yashara'Al sin.
1Kings 16:20 And the rest of the acts of Zamariy, and the conspiracy he made, are they not written in the book of the annals of the sovereigns of Yashara'Al?
1Kings 16:21 Then the people of Yashara'Al were divided into two parts: half of the people followed Thabniy son of Ginath, to make him reign, and half followed Aumariy.
1Kings 16:22 But the people who followed Aumariy were stronger than the people who followed Thabniy son of Ginath. And Thabniy died and Aumariy reigned.
1Kings 16:23 In the thirty-first year of Asa sovereign of Yahudah, Aumariy became sovereign over Yashara'Al, and reigned twelve years. He reigned six years in Thartsah.
1Kings 16:24 And he bought the hill of Shamarun from Shamar for two talents of silver, and built on the hill, and called the name of the city which he built, Shamarun, after the name of Shamar, owner of the hill.
1Kings 16:25 And Aumariy did evil in the eyes of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, and did evil more than all those before him,
1Kings 16:26 and walked in all the ways of Yarab'aum son of Nabat, and in his sin by which he had made Yashara'Al sin, provoking 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 Alahiym of Yashara'Al with their worthlessnesses.
1Kings 16:27 And the rest of the acts of Aumariy which he did, and the might that he attained, are they not written in the book of the annals of the sovereigns of Yashara'Al?
1Kings 16:28 So Aumariy slept with his fathers and was buried in Shamarun. And Achab his son reigned in his place.
1Kings 16:29 In the thirty-eighth year of Asa sovereign of Yahudah, Achab son of Aumariy became sovereign over Yashara'Al. And Achab son of Aumariy reigned over Yashara'Al in Shamarun twenty-two years.
1Kings 16:30 And Achab son of Aumariy did evil in the eyes of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, more than all those before him.
1Kings 16:31 And it came to be, as though it had been a light matter for him to walk in the sins of Yarab'aum son of Nabat, that he took as wife Aiyzabal the daughter of AthBa'aul, sovereign of the Tsidaniym. And he went and served Ba'aul and bowed himself to it,
1Kings 16:32 and raised up an altar for Ba'aul in the house of Ba'aul, which he had built in Shamarun.
1Kings 16:33 And Achab made an Asharah. And Achab did more to provoke 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 Alahiym of Yashara'Al than all the sovereigns of Yashara'Al before him.
1Kings 16:34 In his days Chiy'Al the Biyth Aliy built Yarichah. He laid its foundation at the cost of Abiyram his first-born, and at the cost of his youngest son Shagub he set up its gates, according to the word of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, which He had spoken through Yahusha son of Nun.
1Kings 17:1 And AlYahu the Thashabiy, of the inhabitants of Gal'aud, said to Achab, “As 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 Alahiym of Yashara'Al lives, before whom I stand, there shall be no dew or rain these years, except at my word.”
1Kings 17:2 And the word of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 came to him, saying,
1Kings 17:3 “Go away from here and turn eastward, and hide by the valley Karith, which flows into the Yardan.
1Kings 17:4 “And it shall be that you drink from the stream, and I shall command the ravens to feed you there.”
1Kings 17:5 And he went and did according to the word of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, for he went and dwelt by the valley Karith, which flows into the Yardan.
1Kings 17:6 And the ravens brought him bread and meat in the morning, and bread and meat in the evening, and he drank from the stream.
1Kings 17:7 And it came to be after a while that the stream dried up, because there had been no rain in the land.
1Kings 17:8 Then the word of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 came to him, saying,
1Kings 17:9 “Rise up, go to Tsaraphathah, which belongs to Tsidun, and dwell there. See, I have commanded a widow there to sustain you.”
1Kings 17:10 And he rose up and went to Tsaraphathah, and came to the gate of the city and saw a widow there gathering sticks. And he called and said to her, “Please bring me a little water in a vessel to drink.”
1Kings 17:11 And as she was going to get it, he called and said to her, “Please bring me a piece of bread in your hand.”
1Kings 17:12 And she said, “As 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 your Alahiym lives, I do not have bread, only a handful of flour in a bin, and a little oil in a jar. And see, I am gathering two of sticks and shall go in and prepare it for myself and my son, and we shall eat it, and die.”
1Kings 17:13 And AlYahu said to her, “Do not fear, go and do as you have said, but make me a small cake from it first, and bring it to me. And afterward make some for yourself and your son.
1Kings 17:14 “For thus said 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 Alahiym of Yashara'Al, ‘The bin of flour shall not be used up, nor the jar of oil run dry, until the day 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 sends rain on the earth.’ ”
1Kings 17:15 So she went and did according to the word of AlYahu, and she and he and her household ate for many days.
1Kings 17:16 The bin of flour was not used up, nor did the jar of oil run dry, according to the word of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 which He spoke by AlYahu.
1Kings 17:17 And after these events it came to be that the son of the woman who owned the house became sick. And his sickness was very severe until there was no breath left in him.
1Kings 17:18 And she said to AlYahu, “What have I to do with you, O man of Alahiym? Have you come to me to bring my crookedness to be remembered, and to kill my son?”
1Kings 17:19 And he said to her, “Give me your son.” So he took him from her arms and took him to the upper room where he was dwelling, and laid him on his own bed,
1Kings 17:20 and cried out to 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 and said, “O 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 my Alahiym, have You also brought evil on the widow with whom I am sojourning, to kill her son?”
1Kings 17:21 And he stretched himself out on the child three times, and cried out to 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 and said, “O 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 my Alahiym, I pray, let the life of this child come back to him.”
1Kings 17:22 And 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 heard the voice of AlYahu, and the life of the child came back to him, and he lived.
1Kings 17:23 And AlYahu took the child and brought him down from the upper room into the house, and gave him to his mother. And AlYahu said, “See, your son lives!”
1Kings 17:24 And the woman said to AlYahu, “Now by this I know that you are a man of Alahiym, and that the word of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 in your mouth is truth.”
1Kings 18:1 And after many days it came to be that the word of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 came to AlYahu, in the third year, saying, “Go, present yourself to Achab, and I give rain on the earth.”
1Kings 18:2 Thereupon AlYahu went to present himself to Achab. And the scarcity of food in Shamarun was severe.
1Kings 18:3 And Achab had called AubadYahu, who was over his house. Now AubadYahu feared 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 exceedingly.
1Kings 18:4 And it came to be, while Aiyzabal cut down the prophets of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, that AubadYahu had taken one hundred prophets and hidden them, fifty to a cave, and had fed them with bread and water.
1Kings 18:5 And Achab had said to AubadYahu, “Go into the land to all the springs of water and to all the valleys, it could be that we find grass to keep the horses and mules alive, and not have any livestock cut off.
1Kings 18:6 And they divided the land between them to pass over it, Achab went one way by himself, and AubadYahu went another way by himself.
1Kings 18:7 And as AubadYahu was on his way, then see, AlYahu met him. And he recognized him, and fell on his face, and said, “Is that you, my master AlYahu?”
1Kings 18:8 And he answered him, “It is I. Go, say to your master, ‘AlYahu is here.’ ”
1Kings 18:9 And he said, “What have I sinned, that you are giving your servant into the hand of Achab, to kill me?
1Kings 18:10 “As 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 your Alahiym lives, there is no nation or reign where my master has not sent to look for you. And when they said, ‘He is not here,’ he made the reign or nation swear that they could not find you.
1Kings 18:11 “And now you say, ‘Go, say to your master, “AlYahu is here” ’!
1Kings 18:12 “And it shall be, as soon as I am gone from you, that the Spirit of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 takes you away to a place I do not know. And I shall come to report to Achab, and when he does not find you, he shall kill me. But I your servant have feared 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 from my youth.
1Kings 18:13 “Was it not reported to my master what I did when Aiyzabal slew the prophets of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, how I hid one hundred men of the prophets of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, fifty to a cave, and fed them with bread and water?
1Kings 18:14 “And now you say, ‘Go, say to your master, “AlYahu is here!” ’ Then he shall slay me.”
1Kings 18:15 And AlYahu said, “As 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 of hosts lives, before whom I stand, I shall indeed show myself to him today.”
1Kings 18:16 AubadYahu then went to meet Achab and informed him, and Achab went to meet AlYahu.
1Kings 18:17 And it came to be, when Achab saw AlYahu, that Achab said to him, “Is that you, O disturber of Yashara'Al?”
1Kings 18:18 And he answered, “I have not disturbed Yashara'Al, but you and your father’s house, in that you have forsaken the commands of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, and you have followed the Ba'auliym.
1Kings 18:19 “And now, send and gather all Yashara'Al to me on Mount Karmal, the four hundred and fifty prophets of Ba'aul, and the four hundred prophets of Asharah, who eat at Aiyzabal’s table.”
1Kings 18:20 Achab then sent for all the children of Yashara'Al, and gathered the prophets on Mount Karmal.
1Kings 18:21 And AlYahu came to all the people, and said, “How long would you keep hopping between two opinions? If 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 is Alahiym, follow Him; and if Ba'aul, follow him.” But the people answered him not a word.
1Kings 18:22 And AlYahu said to the people, “I alone am left a prophet of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, but the prophets of Ba'aul are four hundred and fifty men.
1Kings 18:23 “Now let them give us two bulls. And let them choose one bull for themselves, and cut it in pieces, and lay it on the wood, but set no fire. And I, I prepare the other bull, and shall lay it on the wood, but set no fire.
1Kings 18:24 “And you shall call on the name of your mighty one, and I, I call on the Name of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄. And the Alahiym who answers by fire, He is Alahiym.” So all the people answered and said, “The word is good.”
1Kings 18:25 And AlYahu said to the prophets of Ba'aul, “Choose one bull for yourselves and prepare it first, for you are many. And call on the name of your mighty one, but set no fire.”
1Kings 18:26 So they took the bull which was given them, and prepared it, and called on the name of Ba'aul from morning even until noon, saying, “O Ba'aul, answer us!” But there was no voice and no one answered. And they leaped about the altar which they had made.
1Kings 18:27 And it came to be at noon, that AlYahu taunted them and said, “Cry aloud, for he is a mighty one; he is meditating, or he is busy, or he is on a journey, or it could be that he is asleep and has to be awakened!”
1Kings 18:28 And they cried aloud, and cut themselves, according to their ruling, with knives and spears, until the blood gushed out on them.
1Kings 18:29 And it came to be when midday was past, that they prophesied until the time of bringing the evening offering. But there was no voice and no one answered, and no one paying attention.
1Kings 18:30 Then AlYahu said to all the people, “Come closer to me.” And all the people came closer to him. And he repaired the altar of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 that was broken down.
1Kings 18:31 And AlYahu took twelve stones, according to the number of the tribes of the sons of Ya'auqab, to whom the word of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 had come, saying, “Yashara'Al is your name.”
1Kings 18:32 And with the stones he built an altar in the Name of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄. And he made a trench around the altar large enough to hold two sa'athiym of seed.
1Kings 18:33 And he arranged the wood, and cut the bull in pieces, and laid it on the wood, and said, “Fill four jars with water, and pour it on the burnt offering and on the wood.”
1Kings 18:34 Then he said, “Do it a second time,” and they did it a second time. And he said, “Do it a third time,” and they did it a third time.
1Kings 18:35 And the water flowed around the altar, and he filled the trench with water too.
1Kings 18:36 And it came to be, at the time of bringing the evening offering, that AlYahu the prophet came near and said, “ 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 Alahiym of Abraham, Yatschaq, and Yashara'Al, let it be known today: You are Alahiym in Yashara'Al, and I Your servant, have done all these matters by Your word.
1Kings 18:37 “Answer me, O 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, answer me, and let this people know that You are 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 Alahiym, and You shall turn their hearts back to You again.”
1Kings 18:38 Then the fire of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 fell and consumed the burnt offering, and the wood and the stones and the dust, and it licked up the water that was in the trench.
1Kings 18:39 And all the people saw, and fell on their faces, and said, “ 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, He is the Alahiym! 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, He is the Alahiym!”
1Kings 18:40 And AlYahu said to them, “Seize the prophets of Ba'aul! Do not let one of them escape!” So they seized them, and AlYahu brought them down to the valley Qishun and slaughtered them there.
1Kings 18:41 And AlYahu said to Achab, “Go up, eat and drink, because of the sound of the noise of rain.”
1Kings 18:42 And Achab went up to eat and to drink. And AlYahu went up to the top of Karmal, and he bowed down on the ground, and put his face between his knees,
1Kings 18:43 and said to his servant, “Go up, please, look closely toward the sea.” So he went up and looked closely, and said, “Not a speck.” And seven times he said, “Go again.”
1Kings 18:44 And it came to be the seventh time, that he said, “See, a little cloud as small as a man’s hand is coming out of the sea!” And he said, “Go up, say to Achab, ‘Hitch up, and go down before the rain stops you.’ ”
1Kings 18:45 And in the meantime, it came to be that the shamiym became black with clouds and wind, and there was a heavy rain, while Achab rode and went to Yazarau'Al.
1Kings 18:46 And the hand of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 was on AlYahu. And he girded up his loins and ran ahead of Achab to the entrance of Yazarau'Al.
1Kings 19:1 And when Achab reported to Aiyzabal all that AlYahu had done, also how he slew all the prophets with the sword,
1Kings 19:2 Aiyzabal sent a messenger to AlYahu, saying, “So let the mighty ones do to me, and more also, if I do not make your life as the life of one of them by tomorrow about this time.”
1Kings 19:3 And he feared, and rose up and ran for his life, and went to Bar Shabau, which belongs to Yahudah, and left his servant there.
1Kings 19:4 But he himself went a day’s journey into the wilderness, and came and sat down under a broom tree, and prayed that he might die, and said, “It is enough! Now, 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, take my life, for I am no better than my fathers!”
1Kings 19:5 And he lay and slept under a broom tree, and see, a messenger touched him, and said to him, “Rise, eat.”
1Kings 19:6 And he looked and saw by his head a cake baked on coals, and a jar of water. So he ate and drank, and turned and lay down.
1Kings 19:7 And the messenger of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 came back the second time, and touched him, and said, “Rise, eat, for the journey is too much for you.”
1Kings 19:8 And he rose up and ate and drank, and went in the strength of that food forty days and forty nights as far as Charab, the mountain of Alahiym.
1Kings 19:9 And there he went into a cave and spent the night there. And see, the word of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 came to him, and said to him, “What are you doing here, AlYahu?”
1Kings 19:10 And he said, “I have been very jealous for 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 Alahiym of hosts, for the children of Yashara'Al have forsaken Your covenant. They have thrown down Your altars, and they have slain Your prophets with the sword, and I am left, I alone, and they seek my life, to take it.”
1Kings 19:11 And He said, “Go out, and stand on the mountain before 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄.” And see, 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 passed by, and a great and strong wind tearing the mountains and breaking the rocks in pieces before 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 – 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 was not in the wind. And after the wind an earthquake – 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 was not in the earthquake,
1Kings 19:12 and after the earthquake a fire – 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 was not in the fire, and after the fire a still small voice.
1Kings 19:13 And it came to be, when AlYahu heard it, that he wrapped his face in his robe and went out and stood at the cave opening. And see, a voice came to him, and said, “What are you doing here, AlYahu?”
1Kings 19:14 And he said, “I have been very jealous for 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 Alahiym of hosts, for the children of Yashara'Al have forsaken Your covenant. They have thrown down Your altars, and they have slain Your prophets with the sword, and I am left, I alone, and they seek my life, to take it.”
1Kings 19:15 And 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 said to him, “Go, return on your way to the Wilderness of Damashaq. And you shall go in and anoint Chaza’Al as sovereign over Aram.
1Kings 19:16 “And anoint Yahua son of Namshiy as sovereign over Yashara'Al. And anoint Aliyshau son of Shaphat of Abal Machulah as prophet in your place.
1Kings 19:17 “And it shall be that whoever escapes the sword of Chaza’Al, Yahua does kill. And whoever escapes from the sword of Yahua, Aliyshau does kill.
1Kings 19:18 “And I shall leave seven thousand in Yashara'Al, all whose knees have not bowed to Ba'aul, and every mouth that has not kissed him.”
1Kings 19:19 And he went from there, and found Aliyshau son of Shaphat, who was ploughing with twelve yoke of oxen before him, and he was with the twelfth. And AlYahu passed by him and threw his robe on him.
1Kings 19:20 And he left the oxen and ran after AlYahu, and said, “Please let me kiss my father and my mother, and then I follow you.” And he said to him, “Go, turn back, for what have I done to you?”
1Kings 19:21 And he turned back from him, and took a yoke of oxen and slaughtered them and cooked their flesh, using the implements of the oxen, and gave it to the people, and they ate. Then he rose up and followed AlYahu, and became his servant.
1Kings 20:1 And Ban-Hadad the sovereign of Aram gathered all his army, and there were thirty-two sovereigns with him, with horses and chariots. And he went up and besieged Shamarun, and fought against it.
1Kings 20:2 And he sent messengers into the city to Achab sovereign of Yashara'Al, and said to him, “Thus said Ban-Hadad,
1Kings 20:3 ‘Your silver and your gold are mine, and your wives and children, the best, are mine.’ ”
1Kings 20:4 And the sovereign of Yashara'Al answered and said, “As you say, my master, O sovereign, I am yours, and all that I have.”
1Kings 20:5 And the messengers came back and said, “Thus speaks Ban-Hadad, saying, ‘Indeed I have sent to you, saying, “Give me your silver and your gold, your wives and your children,”
1Kings 20:6 but about this time tomorrow I shall send my servants to you, and they shall search your house and the houses of your servants. And it shall be, that whatever is pleasing in your eyes they shall lay hold of and take it.’ ”
1Kings 20:7 And the sovereign of Yashara'Al called all the elders of the land, and said, “Please know and see the evil this one is seeking, for he sent to me for my wives, and for my children, and for my silver, and for my gold, and I did not refuse him.”
1Kings 20:8 And all the elders and all the people said to him, “Do not listen nor agree.”
1Kings 20:9 So he said to the messengers of Ban-Hadad, “Say to my master the sovereign, ‘All that you sent for to your servant the first time I shall do, but this I am unable to do.’ ” And the messengers went and brought back word to him.
1Kings 20:10 And Ban-Hadad sent to him and said, “The mighty ones do so to me, and more also, if enough dust is left of Shamarun for a handful for each of the people who follow me.”
1Kings 20:11 And the sovereign of Yashara'Al answered and said, “Speak, ‘Him who girds on his armor should not boast like him who lays it down.’ ”
1Kings 20:12 And it came to be when this word was heard, as he and the sovereigns were drinking in the booths, that he said to his servants, “Set yourselves.” So they set themselves against the city.
1Kings 20:13 And see, a prophet came near to Achab sovereign of Yashara'Al, saying, “Thus said 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, ‘Have you seen all this great company? See, I am giving it into your hand today, and you shall know that I am 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄.’ ”
1Kings 20:14 And Achab said, “By whom?” And he said, “Thus said 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, ‘By the young rulers of the provinces.’ ” And he said, “Who opens the attack?” Then he answered, “You.”
1Kings 20:15 And he mustered the young rulers of the provinces, and there were two hundred and thirty-two. And after them he mustered all the people, all the children of Yashara'Al, seven thousand.
1Kings 20:16 And they went out at noon, while Ban-Hadad and the thirty-two sovereigns helping him were getting drunk in the booths.
1Kings 20:17 And the young rulers of the provinces went out first. And Ban-Hadad sent out, and they reported to him, saying, “Men have come out of Shamarun!”
1Kings 20:18 Then he said, “If they have come out for peace, seize them alive. And if they have come out for battle, seize them alive.”
1Kings 20:19 So these young rulers of the provinces went out of the city with the army which followed them.
1Kings 20:20 And each smote his man, so the Aram fled, and Yashara'Al pursued them. And Ban-Hadad the sovereign of Aram escaped on a horse with the horsemen.
1Kings 20:21 And the sovereign of Yashara'Al went out and smote the horses and chariots, and smote the Aram, a great smiting.
1Kings 20:22 And the prophet came to the sovereign of Yashara'Al and said to him, “Go, strengthen yourself. And know and see what you should do, for at the turn of the year the sovereign of Aram is coming up against you.”
1Kings 20:23 And the servants of the sovereign of Aram said to him, “Their mighty ones are mighty ones of the hills. That is why they were stronger than we. But let us fight against them in the plain – are we not stronger than they?
1Kings 20:24 “Now do this: Take away the sovereigns, each from his position, and put officers in their places,
1Kings 20:25 and number an army like the army that you have lost, horse for horse and chariot for chariot, and let us fight against them in the plain – are we not stronger than they?” And he listened to their voice and did so.
1Kings 20:26 And it came to be, at the turn of the year, that Ban-Hadad mustered the Aram and went up to Aphaq to fight against Yashara'Al.
1Kings 20:27 And the children of Yashara'Al were mustered and were fed, and they went against them. And the children of Yashara'Al encamped before them like two little flocks of goats, while the Aram filled the land.
1Kings 20:28 And there came near a man of Alahiym and spoke to the sovereign of Yashara'Al, and said, “Thus said 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, ‘Because the Aram have said, “ 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 is Alahiym of the hills, but He is not Alahiym of the valleys,” therefore I shall give all this great company into your hand, and you shall know that I am 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄.’ ”
1Kings 20:29 And they encamped opposite each other for seven days. And it came to be that on the seventh day the battle was joined. And the children of Yashara'Al smote one hundred thousand foot soldiers of the Aram in one day.
1Kings 20:30 And those that were left fled to Aphaqah, into the city, and a wall fell on twenty-seven thousand of the men who were left. And Ban-Hadad fled and went into the city, into an inner room.
1Kings 20:31 And his servants said to him, “See now, we have heard that the sovereigns of the house of Yashara'Al are kind sovereigns. Please, let us put sackcloth around our waists and ropes around our heads, and go out to the sovereign of Yashara'Al. It could be that he spares your life.”
1Kings 20:32 So they girded sackcloth on their loins and put ropes around their heads, and came to the sovereign of Yashara'Al and said, “Your servant Ban-Hadad said, ‘Please let me live.’ ” And he said, “Is he still alive? He is my brother.”
1Kings 20:33 And the men divined and they quickly grasped it and said, “Your brother Ban-Hadad.” And he said, “Go, bring him.” So Ban-Hadad came out to him, and he let him come up on the chariot.
1Kings 20:34 And Ban-Hadad said to him, “The cities which my father took from your father I return. And set up market-places for yourself in Damashaq, as my father did in Shamarun.” And Achab said, “I send you away with this covenant.” And he made a covenant with him and sent him away.
1Kings 20:35 And a certain man of the sons of the prophets said to his neighbor by the word of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, “Smite me, please.” But the man refused to smite him.
1Kings 20:36 Then he said to him, “Because you have not obeyed the voice of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, see, as soon as you leave me a lion shall smite you.” And when he left him, a lion found him and smote him.
1Kings 20:37 And he found another man, and said, “Smite me, please.” So the man smote him, smiting and wounding.
1Kings 20:38 Then the prophet went and waited for the sovereign by the way, and disguised himself with ashes on his eyes.
1Kings 20:39 And as the sovereign passed by, he cried out to the sovereign and said, “Your servant went out into the midst of the battle. And see, a man came over and brought a man to me, and said, ‘Guard this man. If he should in any way be missing, your life shall be for his life, or else you shall pay a talent of silver.’
1Kings 20:40 “And it came to be, while your servant was busy here and there, he was gone.” And the sovereign of Yashara'Al said to him, “Your judgment is right, you yourself have decided it.”
1Kings 20:41 Then he quickly removed the ashes from his eyes. And the sovereign of Yashara'Al recognized him as one of the prophets.
1Kings 20:42 And he said to him, “Thus said 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, ‘Because you have let slip out of your hand a man whom I put under the ban, therefore your life shall go for his life, and your people for his people.’ ”
1Kings 20:43 And the sovereign of Yashara'Al went to his house embittered and displeased, and came to Shamarun.
1Kings 21:1 And it came to be, after these events, that Nabuth the Yazrau'Aliy had a vineyard which was in Yazarau'Al, near the palace of Achab the sovereign of Shamarun.
1Kings 21:2 And Achab spoke to Nabuth, saying, “Give me your vineyard, and it shall be a vegetable garden for me, since it adjoins my house. And let me give you a better vineyard for it. If it is good in your eyes, let me give you its worth in silver.”
1Kings 21:3 And Nabuth said to Achab, “Far be it from me, by 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, that I should give the inheritance of my fathers to you!”
1Kings 21:4 And Achab went into his house embittered and displeased because of the word which Nabuth the Yazrau'Aliy had spoken to him when he said, “I do not give you the inheritance of my fathers.” And he lay down on his bed, and turned away his face, and did not eat food.
1Kings 21:5 And Aiyzabal his wife came to him, and said to him, “Why is your spirit so embittered that you are not eating food?”
1Kings 21:6 And he said to her, “Because I spoke to Nabuth the Yazrau'Aliy, and said to him, ‘Give me your vineyard for silver, or if you prefer, I give you another vineyard for it.’ But he answered, ‘I do not give you my vineyard.’ ”
1Kings 21:7 So Aiyzabal his wife said to him, “Do you now rule over Yashara'Al? Rise up, eat food, and let your heart be glad. Let me give you the vineyard of Nabuth the Yazrau'Aliy!”
1Kings 21:8 Then she wrote letters in Achab’s name, and sealed them with his seal, and sent the letters to the elders and the nobles who were dwelling in the city with Nabuth.
1Kings 21:9 And she wrote in the letters, saying, “Proclaim a fast, and seat Nabuth at the head of the people,
1Kings 21:10 and seat two men, sons of Baliy'aul before him to bear witness against him, saying, ‘You have blasphemed Alahiym and the sovereign.’ Then you shall take him out, and stone him to death.”
1Kings 21:11 And the men of his city, the elders and nobles who were inhabitants of his city, did as Aiyzabal had sent to them, as it was written in the letters which she had sent to them.
1Kings 21:12 They proclaimed a fast, and seated Nabuth at the head of the people.
1Kings 21:13 And the men, sons of Baliy'aul, came in and sat before him. And the men of Baliy'aul witnessed against him, against Nabuth, in the presence of the people, saying, “Nabuth has blasphemed Alahiym and the sovereign!” So they took him outside the city and stoned him with stones, and he died.
1Kings 21:14 And they sent to Aiyzabal, saying, “Nabuth has been stoned and is dead.”
1Kings 21:15 And it came to be, when Aiyzabal heard that Nabuth had been stoned and was dead, that Aiyzabal said to Achab, “Arise, take possession of the vineyard of Nabuth the Yazrau'Aliy, which he refused to give you for money, for Nabuth is not alive but dead.”
1Kings 21:16 And it came to be, when Achab heard that Nabuth was dead, that Achab rose to go down to take possession of the vineyard of Nabuth the Yazrau'Aliy.
1Kings 21:17 And the word of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 came to AlYahu the Thashabiy, saying,
1Kings 21:18 “Rise up, go down to meet Achab sovereign of Yashara'Al, who lives in Shamarun. See, he is in the vineyard of Nabuth, where he has gone down to take possession of it.
1Kings 21:19 “And you shall speak to him, saying, ‘Thus said 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, “Have you murdered and also taken possession?” ’ And you shall speak to him, saying, ‘Thus said 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, “In the place where dogs licked the blood of Nabuth, the dogs are going to lick your blood, even yours.” ’ ”
1Kings 21:20 And Achab said to AlYahu, “Have you found me, O my enemy?” And he answered, “I have found you, because you have sold yourself to do evil in the eyes of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 :
1Kings 21:21 ‘See, I am bringing evil on you, and shall consume your descendants, and cut off from Achab every male in Yashara'Al, both those shut up and those left at large,
1Kings 21:22 and make your house like the house of Yarab'aum son of Nabat, and like the house of Ba'ausha son of AchYahu, because of the provocation with which you have provoked Me, and made Yashara'Al sin.’
1Kings 21:23 “And also of Aiyzabal 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 has spoken, saying, ‘The dogs are going to eat Aiyzabal by the wall of Yazarau'Al.’
1Kings 21:24 “The dogs are going to eat whoever belongs to Achab and dies in the city, and the birds of the shamiym are going to eat whoever dies in the field.”
1Kings 21:25 Indeed, there never was anyone like Achab who sold himself to do evil in the eyes of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, because Aiyzabal his wife stirred him up.
1Kings 21:26 And he acted very abominably in following idols, according to all that the Amariy had done, whom 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 dispossessed from before the children of Yashara'Al.
1Kings 21:27 And it came to be, when Achab heard those words, that he tore his garments and put sackcloth on his body, and fasted and lay in sackcloth, and went softly.
1Kings 21:28 And the word of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 came to AlYahu the Thashabiy, saying,
1Kings 21:29 “See how Achab has humbled himself before Me? Because he has humbled himself before Me, I do not bring the evil in his days, but in the days of his son I bring the evil on his house.”
1Kings 22:1 And they continued three years without fighting between Aram and Yashara'Al.
1Kings 22:2 And it came to be, in the third year, that Yahushaphat sovereign of Yahudah came down to the sovereign of Yashara'Al.
1Kings 22:3 And the sovereign of Yashara'Al said to his servants, “Do you know that Ramath in Gal'aud is ours, and we are keeping silent from taking it out of the hand of the sovereign of Aram!”
1Kings 22:4 And he said to Yahushaphat, “Do you go with me to battle at Ramath Gal'aud?” And Yahushaphat said to the sovereign of Yashara'Al, “I am as you are, my people as your people, my horses as your horses.”
1Kings 22:5 And Yahushaphat said to the sovereign of Yashara'Al, “Please, first inquire for the word of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄.”
1Kings 22:6 And the sovereign of Yashara'Al gathered the prophets, about four hundred men, and said to them, “Do I go against Ramath Gal'aud to battle, or do I refrain?” And they said, “Go up, for 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 does give it into the hand of the sovereign.”
1Kings 22:7 And Yahushaphat said, “Is there not here a prophet of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 besides, that we might inquire of him?”
1Kings 22:8 And the sovereign of Yashara'Al said to Yahushaphat, “There is still one man, MiykaYahu son of Yamlah, to inquire of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 by him. But I hate him, because he does not prophesy good concerning me, but evil.” And Yahushaphat said, “Let not the sovereign say so!”
1Kings 22:9 So the sovereign of Yashara'Al called an officer and said, “Bring MiykaYahu son of Yamlah at once!”
1Kings 22:10 And the sovereign of Yashara'Al and Yahushaphat sovereign of Yahudah were sitting, each on his throne, dressed in their robes, at a threshing-floor at the entrance of the gate of Shamarun. And all the prophets were prophesying before them.
1Kings 22:11 And TsadaqYahu son of Kana'aunah had made horns of iron for himself, and said, “Thus said 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, ‘With these you push the Aram until they are destroyed.’ ”
1Kings 22:12 And all the prophets were prophesying so, saying, “Go up to Ramath Gal'aud and prosper, for 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 shall give it into the hand of the sovereign.”
1Kings 22:13 And the messenger who had gone to call MiykaYahu spoke to him, saying, “See now, the words of the prophets with one mouth are good towards the sovereign. Please, let your word be like the word of one of them, and you shall speak good.”
1Kings 22:14 And MiykaYahu said, “As 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 lives, whatever 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 says to me, that I speak.”
1Kings 22:15 And he came to the sovereign, and the sovereign said to him, “MiykaYahu, do we go against Ramath Gal'aud to battle, or do we refrain?” And he answered him, “Go and prosper, for 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 shall give it into the hand of the sovereign!”
1Kings 22:16 And the sovereign said to him, “How many times have I made you swear that you do not speak to me, except the truth, in the Name of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 ?”
1Kings 22:17 So he said, “I saw all Yashara'Al scattered on the mountains, as sheep that have no shepherd. And 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 said, ‘These have no master. Let everyone return to his house in peace.’ ”
1Kings 22:18 And the sovereign of Yashara'Al said to Yahushaphat, “Have I not said to you that he would not prophesy good concerning me, but evil?”
1Kings 22:19 Then he said, “Therefore hear the word of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 : I saw 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 sitting on His throne, and all the host of the shamiym standing by Him, on His right and on His left.
1Kings 22:20 “And 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 said, ‘Who shall entice Achab to go up and fall at Ramath Gal'aud?’ And this one said this, and another said that.
1Kings 22:21 “And a spirit came forward and stood before 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, and said, ‘Let me entice him.’
1Kings 22:22 “And 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 said to him, ‘In what way?’ And he said, ‘I shall go out and be a spirit of falsehood in the mouth of all his prophets.’ And He said, ‘Entice him, and also prevail. Go out and do so.’
1Kings 22:23 “And now, see, 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 has put a spirit of falsehood in the mouth of all these prophets of yours, and 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 has spoken evil concerning you.”
1Kings 22:24 And TsadaqYahu son of Kana'aunah came near and smote MiykaYahu on the cheek, and said, “Where did the Spirit of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 pass over from me to speak to you?”
1Kings 22:25 And MiykaYahu said, “Look, you shall see on that day when you go into an inner room to hide!”
1Kings 22:26 And the sovereign of Yashara'Al said, “Take MiykaYahu, and return him to Aman the governor of the city, and to YahuAsh son of the sovereign,
1Kings 22:27 and say, ‘Thus said the sovereign, “Put this one in prison, and feed him with bread of affliction and water of affliction until I come in peace.” ’ ”
1Kings 22:28 And MiykaYahu said, “If you ever return in peace, 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 has not spoken by me.” And he said, “Hear, all you people!”
1Kings 22:29 And the sovereign of Yashara'Al and Yahushaphat the sovereign of Yahudah went up to Ramath Gal'aud.
1Kings 22:30 And the sovereign of Yashara'Al said to Yahushaphat, “Let me disguise myself and go into battle, but you put on your robes.” So the sovereign of Yashara'Al disguised himself and went into battle.
1Kings 22:31 And the sovereign of Aram had commanded the thirty-two commanders of his chariots, saying, “Fight with no one small or great, but only with the sovereign of Yashara'Al.”
1Kings 22:32 And it came to be, when the commanders of the chariots saw Yahushaphat, that they said, “Indeed, it is the sovereign of Yashara'Al!” So they turned aside to fight against him, and Yahushaphat cried out.
1Kings 22:33 And it came to be, when the commanders of the chariots saw that it was not the sovereign of Yashara'Al, that they turned back from pursuing him.
1Kings 22:34 And a man drew a bow in his simplicity, and smote the sovereign of Yashara'Al between the joints of his armor. And he said to the driver of his chariot, “Turn around and take me out of the battle, for I am wounded.”
1Kings 22:35 And the battle increased that day. And the sovereign was propped up in his chariot, facing the Aram, and died at evening, and the blood ran out from the wound onto the floor of the chariot.
1Kings 22:36 And as the sun was going down, a shout passed through the camp, saying, “Each to his city, and each to his land!”
1Kings 22:37 So the sovereign died and was brought to Shamarun, and they buried the sovereign in Shamarun.
1Kings 22:38 And when the chariot was washed at a pool in Shamarun, the dogs licked up his blood, where the whores bathed, according to the word of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 which He had spoken.
1Kings 22:39 And the rest of the acts of Achab and all that he did, and the ivory house which he built and all the cities that he built, are they not written in the book of the annals of the sovereigns of Yashara'Al?
1Kings 22:40 So Achab slept with his fathers, and AchazYahu his son reigned in his place.
1Kings 22:41 And Yahushaphat son of Asa began to reign over Yahudah in the fourth year of Achab sovereign of Yashara'Al.
1Kings 22:42 Yahushaphat was thirty-five years old when he became sovereign, and he reigned twenty-five years in Yarushalam. And his mother’s name was Auzubah the daughter of Shalchiy.
1Kings 22:43 And he walked in all the ways of his father Asa. He did not turn aside from them, doing what was right in the eyes of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄. Only, the high places were not taken away, for the people slaughtered and burned incense on the high places.
1Kings 22:44 And Yahushaphat made peace with the sovereign of Yashara'Al.
1Kings 22:45 And the rest of the acts of Yahushaphat, and the might that he showed, and how he fought, are they not written in the book of the annals of the sovereigns of Yahudah?
1Kings 22:46 And the rest of the cult prostitutes, who remained in the days of his father Asa, he cleared out from the land.
1Kings 22:47 And there was then no sovereign in Adum, a deputy was sovereign.
1Kings 22:48 Yahushaphat made Tharshish ships to go to A'uphirah for gold. However, they did not go, for the ships were wrecked at Autsiyun Gabar.
1Kings 22:49 Then AchazYahu son of Achab said to Yahushaphat, “Let my servants go with your servants in the ships.” But Yahushaphat would not.
1Kings 22:50 So Yahushaphat slept with his fathers, and was buried with his fathers in the City of Dud his father. And YahuRam his son reigned in his place.
1Kings 22:51 AchazYahu son of Achab began to reign over Yashara'Al in Shamarun in the seventeenth year of Yahushaphat sovereign of Yahudah, and reigned two years over Yashara'Al,
1Kings 22:52 and did evil in the eyes of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, and walked in the way of his father and in the way of his mother and in the way of Yarab'aum son of Nabat, who had made Yashara'Al sin,
1Kings 22:53 and served Ba'aul and bowed himself to it, and provoked 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 Alahiym of Yashara'Al, according to all that his father had done.
