Second Chronicles 21


21:1 Now Jehoshaphat slept with his fathers, and was buried with
 his fathers in the city of David. And Jehoram his son reigned
 in his stead.
21:2 And he had brethren the sons of Jehoshaphat, Azariah, and
 Jehiel, and Zechariah, and Azariah, and Michael, Shephatiah:
 all these [were] the sons of Jehoshaphat king of Israel.
21:3 And their father gave them great gifts of silver, and of
 gold, and of precious things, with fortified cities in Judah:
 but the kingdom he gave to Jehoram; because he [was] the
 first-born.
21:4 Now when Jehoram had risen to the kingdom of his father, he
 strengthened himself, and slew all his brethren with the sword,
 and [divers] also of the princes of Israel.
21:5 Jehoram [was] thirty and two years old when he began to
 reign, and he reigned eight years in Jerusalem.
21:6 And he walked in the way of the kings of Israel, as did the
 house of Ahab: for he had the daughter of Ahab for a wife: and
 he wrought [that which was] evil in the eyes of the LORD.
21:7 Yet the LORD would not destroy the house of David, because
 of the covenant that he had made with David, and as he promised
 to give a light to him and to his sons for ever.
21:8 In his days the Edomites revolted from under the dominion
 of Judah, and made themselves a king.
21:9 Then Jehoram went forth with his princes, and all his
 chariots with him: and he rose by night, and smote the Edomites
 who encompassed him, and the captains of the chariots.
21:10 So the Edomites revolted from under the hand of Judah to
 this day. The same time [also] did Libnah revolt from under his
 hand; because he had forsaken the LORD God of his fathers.
21:11 Moreover, he made high places in the mountains of Judah,
 and caused the inhabitants of Jerusalem to commit fornication,
 and compelled Judah to [do the same].
21:12 And there came a writing to him from Elijah the prophet,
 saying, Thus saith the LORD God of David thy father, Because
 thou hast not walked in the ways of Jehoshaphat thy father, nor
 in the ways of Asa king of Judah,
21:13 But hast walked in the way of the kings of Israel, and
 hast made Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem to commit
 idolatry, like the idolatries of the house of Ahab, and also
 hast slain thy brethren of thy father's house, [who were]
 better than thyself:
21:14 Behold, with a great plague will the LORD smite thy
 people, and thy children, and thy wives, and all thy goods:
21:15 And thou [shalt have] great sickness by disease of thy
 bowels, until thy bowels fall out by reason of the sickness day
 by day.
21:16 Moreover, the LORD stirred up against Jehoram the spirit
 of the Philistines, and of the Arabians, that [were] near the
 Cushites.
21:17 And they came up into Judah, and broke into it, and
 carried away all the substance that was found in the king's
 house, and his sons also, and his wives; so that there was not
 a son left to him, save Jehoahaz the youngest of his sons.
21:18 And after all this the LORD smote him in his bowels with
 an incurable disease.
21:19 And it came to pass, that in process of time, after the
 end of two years, his bowels fell out by reason of his
 sickness: so he died of severe diseases. And his people made no
 burning for him, like the burning of his fathers.
21:20 Thirty and two years old was he when he began to reign,
 and he reigned in Jerusalem, eight years, and departed without
 being desired: yet they buried him in the city of David, but
 not in the sepulchers of the kings.
