1 Igitur in octavo decimo anno regni Ieroboam filii Nabat regnavit Abiam super Iudam.
2 Tribus annis regnavit in Ierusalem; nomen matris eius Maacha filia Abessalom.
3 Ambulavitque in omnibus peccatis patris sui, quae fecerat ante eum; nec erat cor eius perfectum cum Domino Deo suo sicut cor David patris eius.
4 Sed propter David dedit ei Dominus Deus suus lucernam in Ierusalem, ut suscitaret filium eius post eum et statueret Ierusalem;
5 eo quod fecisset David rectum in oculis Domini et non declinasset ab omnibus, quae praeceperat ei, cunctis diebus vitae suae, excepta re Uriae Hetthaei. (
7 Reliqua autem gestorum Abiam et omnia, quae fecit, nonne haec scripta sunt in libro annalium regum Iudae? Fuitque bellum inter Abiam et inter Ieroboam.
8 Et dormivit Abiam cum patribus suis, et sepelierunt eum in civitate David; regnavitque Asa filius eius pro eo.
9 In anno ergo vicesimo Ieroboam regis Israel regnavit Asa rex Iudae
10 et quadraginta et uno anno regnavit in Ierusalem. Nomen matris eius Maacha filia Abessalom.
11 Et fecit Asa rectum ante conspectum Domini sicut David pater eius.
12 Et abstulit prostibula de terra purgavitque universas sordes idolorum, quae fecerant patres eius.
13 Insuper et Maacham matrem suam amovit, ne esset domina, eo quod fecisset abominationem Aserae; confregitque Asa simulacrum turpissimum et combussit in torrente Cedron.
14 Excelsa autem non abstulit; verumtamen cor Asa perfectum erat coram Domino cunctis diebus suis.
15 Et intulit ea, quae sanctificaverat pater suus et quae ipse voverat, in domum Domini, argentum et aurum et vasa.
16 Bellum autem erat inter Asa et Baasa regem lsrael cunctis diebus eorum.
17 Ascendit quoque Baasa rex Israel in Iudam et aedificavit Rama, ut non posset quispiam egredi vel ingredi de parte Asa regis Iudae.
18 Tollens itaque Asa omne argentum et aurum, quod remanserat in thesauris domus Domini et in thesauris domus regiae, dedit illud in manu servorum suorum et misit ad Benadad filium Tabremmon filii Hezion regem Syriae, qui habitabat in Damasco, dicens:
15:19" Foedus est inter me et te et inter patrem meum et patrem tuum; ideo misi tibi munera, argentum et aurum, et peto, ut irritum facias foedus, quod habes cum Baasa rege Israel, et recedat a me".
20 Acquiescens Benadad regi Asa misit principes exercituum suorum in civitates Israel, et percusserunt Ahion et Dan et Abelbethmaacha et universam Chenereth cum omni terra Nephthali.
21 Quod cum audisset Baasa, cessavit aedificare Rama et reversus est in Thersa.
22 Rex autem Asa convocavit omnem Iudam, nullo excusato; et tulerunt lapides Rama et ligna eius, quibus aedificaverat Baasa, et exstruxit de eis rex Asa Gabaa Beniamin et Maspha.
23 Reliqua autem omnium gestorum Asa et universa fortitudo eius et cuncta, quae fecit, et civitates, quas exstruxit, nonne haec scripta sunt in libro annalium regum Iudae? Verumtamen in tempore senectutis suae doluit pedes;
24 et dormivit cum patribus suis et sepultus est cum eis in civitate David patris sui. Regnavitque Iosaphat filius eius pro eo.
25 Nadab vero filius Ieroboam regnavit super Israel anno secundo Asa regis Iudae; regnavitque super Israel duobus annis.
26 Et fecit, quod malum est in conspectu Domini, et ambulavit in viis patris sui et in peccato eius, quo peccare fecit Israel.
27 Insidiatus est autem ei Baasa filius Ahiae de domo Issachar et percussit eum in Gebbethon, quae est urbs Philisthinorum; siquidem Nadab et omnis Israel obsidebant Gebbethon.
28 Interfecit igitur illum Baasa in anno tertio Asa regis Iudae et regnavit pro eo.
29 Cumque regnasset, percussit omnem domum Ieroboam; non dimisit ne unam quidem animam de semine eius, donec deleret eam iuxta verbum Domini, quod locutus fuerat in manu servi sui Ahiae Silonitis
30 propter peccata Ieroboam, quae peccaverat et quibus peccare fecerat Israel, et propter delictum, quo irritaverat Dominum, Deum Israel.
31 Reliqua autem gestorum Nadab et omnia, quae fortiter operatus est, nonne haec scripta sunt in libro annalium regum Israel?
32 Fuitque bellum inter Asa et Baasa regem Israel cunctis diebus eorum.
33 Anno tertio Asa regis Iudae regnavit Baasa filius Ahiae super omnem Israel in Thersa viginti quattuor annis;
34 et fecit malum coram Domino ambulavitque in via Ieroboam et in peccato eius, quo peccare fecit Israel.
King James Version
1 Now in the eighteenth year of king Jeroboam the son of Nebat reigned Abijam over Judah.
2 Three years reigned he in Jerusalem. And his mother's name was Maachah, the daughter of Abishalom.
3 And he walked in all the sins of his father, which he had done before him: and his heart was not perfect with the LORD his God, as the heart of David his father.
4 Nevertheless for David's sake did the LORD his God give him a lamp in Jerusalem, to set up his son after him, and to establish Jerusalem:
5 Because David did that which was right in the eyes of the LORD, and turned not aside from any thing that he commanded him all the days of his life, save only in the matter of Uriah the Hittite.
6 And there was war between Rehoboam and Jeroboam all the days of his life.
7 Now the rest of the acts of Abijam, and all that he did, are they not written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Judah? And there was war between Abijam and Jeroboam.
8 And Abijam slept with his fathers; and they buried him in the city of David: and Asa his son reigned in his stead.
9 ¶ And in the twentieth year of Jeroboam king of Israel reigned Asa over Judah.
10 And forty and one years reigned he in Jerusalem. And his mother's name was Maachah, the daughter of Abishalom.
11 And Asa did that which was right in the eyes of the LORD, as did David his father.
12 And he took away the sodomites out of the land, and removed all the idols that his fathers had made.
13 And also Maachah his mother, even her he removed from being queen, because she had made an idol in a grove; and Asa destroyed her idol, and burnt it by the brook Kidron.
14 But the high places were not removed: nevertheless Asa's heart was perfect with the LORD all his days.
15 And he brought in the things which his father had dedicated, and the things which himself had dedicated, into the house of the LORD, silver, and gold, and vessels.
16 ¶ And there was war between Asa and Baasha king of Israel all their days.
17 And Baasha king of Israel went up against Judah, and built Ramah, that he might not suffer any to go out or come in to Asa king of Judah.
18 Then Asa took all the silver and the gold that were left in the treasures of the house of the LORD, and the treasures of the king's house, and delivered them into the hand of his servants: and king Asa sent them to Ben-hadad, the son of Tabrimon, the son of Hezion, king of Syria, that dwelt at Damascus, saying,
19 There is a league between me and thee, and between my father and thy father: behold, I have sent unto thee a present of silver and gold; come and break thy league with Baasha king of Israel, that he may depart from me.
20 So Ben-hadad hearkened unto king Asa, and sent the captains of the hosts which he had against the cities of Israel, and smote Ijon, and Dan, and Abel-beth-maachah, and all Cinneroth, with all the land of Naphtali.
21 And it came to pass, when Baasha heard thereof, that he left off building of Ramah, and dwelt in Tirzah.
22 Then king Asa made a proclamation throughout all Judah; none was exempted: and they took away the stones of Ramah, and the timber thereof, wherewith Baasha had builded; and king Asa built with them Geba of Benjamin, and Mizpah.
23 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 chronicles of the kings of Judah? Nevertheless in the time of his old age he was diseased in his feet.
24 And Asa slept with his fathers, and was buried with his fathers in the city of David his father: and Jehoshaphat his son reigned in his stead.
25 ¶ And Nadab the son of Jeroboam began to reign over Israel in the second year of Asa king of Judah, and reigned over Israel two years.
26 And he did evil in the sight of the LORD, and walked in the way of his father, and in his sin wherewith he made Israel to sin.
27 ¶ And Baasha the son of Ahijah, of the house of Issachar, conspired against him; and Baasha smote him at Gibbethon, which belonged to the Philistines; for Nadab and all Israel laid siege to Gibbethon.
28 Even in the third year of Asa king of Judah did Baasha slay him, and reigned in his stead.
29 And it came to pass, when he reigned, that he smote all the house of Jeroboam; he left not to Jeroboam any that breathed, until he had destroyed him, according unto the saying of the LORD, which he spake by his servant Ahijah the Shilonite:
30 Because of the sins of Jeroboam which he sinned, and which he made Israel sin, by his provocation wherewith he provoked the LORD God of Israel to anger.
31 ¶ Now the rest of the acts of Nadab, and all that he did, are they not written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Israel?
32 And there was war between Asa and Baasha king of Israel all their days.
33 In the third year of Asa king of Judah began Baasha the son of Ahijah to reign over all Israel in Tirzah, twenty and four years.
34 And he did evil in the sight of the LORD, and walked in the way of Jeroboam, and in his sin wherewith he made Israel to sin.
