First Kings 15


15:1 Now in the eighteenth year of king Jeroboam the son of
 Nebat reigned Abijam over Judah.
15:2 Three years he reigned in Jerusalem. And his mother's name
 [was] Maachah, the daughter of Abishalom.
15:3 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.
15:4 Nevertheless, for David's sake the LORD his God gave him a
 lamp in Jerusalem, to set up his son after him, and to
 establish Jerusalem:
15:5 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.
15:6 And there was war between Rehoboam and Jeroboam all the
 days of his life.
15:7 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.
15:8 And Abijam slept with his fathers; and they buried him in
 the city of David: and Asa his son reigned in his stead.
15:9 And in the twentieth year of Jeroboam king of Israel
 reigned Asa over Judah.
15:10 And forty and one years reigned he in Jerusalem. And his
 mother's name [was] Maachah, the daughter of Abishalom.
15:11 And Asa did [that which was] right in the eyes of the
 LORD, as [did] David his father.
15:12 And he banished the sodomites from the land, and removed
 all the idols that his fathers had made.
15:13 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.
15:14 But the high places were not removed: nevertheless Asa's
 heart was perfect with the LORD all his days.
15:15 And he brought 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.
15:16 And there was war between Asa and Baasha king of Israel
 all their days.
15:17 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.
15:18 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,
15:19 [There is] a league between me and thee, [and] between my
 father and thy father: behold, I have sent to thee a present of
 silver and gold; come and break thy league with Baasha king of
 Israel, that he may depart from me.
15:20 So Ben-hadad hearkened to king Asa, and sent the captains
 of the armies 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.
15:21 And it came to pass, when Baasha heard [of it], that he
 left off building of Ramah, and dwelt in Tirzah.
15:22 Then king Asa made a proclamation throughout all Judah;
 none [was] exempted: and they took away the stones of Ramah,
 and its timber, with which Baasha had built it; and king Asa
 built with them Geba of Benjamin, and Mizpah.
15:23 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.
15:24 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.
15:25 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.
15:26 And he did evil in the sight of the LORD, and walked in
 the way of his father, and in his sin with which he made Israel
 to sin.
15:27 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.
15:28 Even in the third year of Asa king of Judah did Baasha
 slay him, and reigned in his stead.
15:29 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 to the saying
 of the LORD, which he spoke by his servant Ahijah the
 Shilonite:
15:30 Because of the sins of Jeroboam which he sinned, and which
 he made Israel sin, by his provocation with which he provoked
 the LORD God of Israel to anger.
15:31 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?
15:32 And there was war between Asa and Baasha king of Israel
 all their days.
15:33 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.
15:34 And he did evil in the sight of the LORD, and walked in
 the way of Jeroboam, and in his sin with which he made Israel
 to sin.
