اَلْمُلُوكِ ٱلْأَوَّلُ 22

وَأَقَامُوا ثَلَاثَ سِنِينَ بِدُونِ حَرْبٍ بَيْنَ أَرَامَ وَإِسْرَائِيلَ. ١ 1
Three years passed without war between Aram and Israel.
وَفِي ٱلسَّنَةِ ٱلثَّالِثَةِ نَزَلَ يَهُوشَافَاطُ مَلِكُ يَهُوذَا إِلَى مَلِكِ إِسْرَائِيلَ. ٢ 2
Then it came about that in the third year, Jehoshaphat the king of Judah went down to the king of Israel.
فَقَالَ مَلِكُ إِسْرَائِيلَ لِعَبِيدِهِ: «أَتَعْلَمُونَ أَنَّ رَامُوتَ جِلْعَادَ لَنَا وَنَحْنُ سَاكِتُونَ عَنْ أَخْذِهَا مِنْ يَدِ مَلِكِ أَرَامَ؟» ٣ 3
Now the king of Israel had said to his servants, “Do you know that Ramoth Gilead is ours, but that we are doing nothing to take it from the hand of the king of Aram?”
وَقَالَ لِيَهُوشَافَاطَ: «أَتَذْهَبُ مَعِي لِلْحَرْبِ إِلَى رَامُوتَ جِلْعَادَ؟» فَقَالَ يَهُوشَافَاطُ لِمَلِكِ إِسْرَائِيلَ: «مَثَلِي مَثَلُكَ. شَعْبِي كَشَعْبِكَ، وَخَيْلِي كَخَيْلِكَ». ٤ 4
So he said to Jehoshaphat, “Will you go with me to war at Ramoth Gilead?” Jehoshaphat replied to the king of Israel, “I am like you, my people are like your people, and my horses are like your horses.”
ثُمَّ قَالَ يَهُوشَافَاطُ لِمَلِكِ إِسْرَائِيلَ: «ٱسْأَلِ ٱلْيَوْمَ عَنْ كَلَامِ ٱلرَّبِّ». ٥ 5
Jehoshaphat said to the king of Israel, “Please seek direction from the word of Yahweh for what you should do first.”
فَجَمَعَ مَلِكُ إِسْرَائِيلَ ٱلْأَنْبِيَاءَ، نَحْوَ أَرْبَعِ مِئَةِ رَجُلٍ وَقَالَ لَهُمْ: «أَأَذْهَبُ إِلَى رَامُوتَ جِلْعَادَ لِلْقِتَالِ أَمْ أَمْتَنِعُ؟» فَقَالُوا: «ٱصْعَدْ فَيَدْفَعَهَا ٱلسَّيِّدُ لِيَدِ ٱلْمَلِكِ». ٦ 6
Then the king of Israel gathered the prophets together, four hundred men, and said to them, “Should I go to Ramoth Gilead to battle, or should I not?” They said, “Attack, for the Lord will give it into the hand of the king.”
فَقَالَ يَهُوشَافَاطُ: «أَمَا يُوجَدُ هُنَا بَعْدُ نَبِيٌّ لِلرَّبِّ فَنَسْأَلَ مِنْهُ؟» ٧ 7
But Jehoshaphat said, “Is there not here yet another prophet of Yahweh from whom we might seek advice?”
فَقَالَ مَلِكُ إِسْرَائِيلَ لِيَهُوشَافَاطَ: «إِنَّهُ يُوجَدُ بَعْدُ رَجُلٌ وَاحِدٌ لِسُؤَالِ ٱلرَّبِّ بِهِ، وَلَكِنِّي أُبْغِضُهُ لِأَنَّهُ لَا يَتَنَبَّأُ عَلَيَّ خَيْرًا بَلْ شَرًّا، وَهُوَ مِيخَا بْنُ يَمْلَةَ». فَقَالَ يَهُوشَافَاطُ: «لَا يَقُلِ ٱلْمَلِكُ هَكَذَا». ٨ 8
The king of Israel said to Jehoshaphat, “There is still one man by whom we may seek advice from Yahweh to help, Micaiah son of Imlah, but I hate him because he does not prophesy anything good about me, but only hardships.” But Jehoshaphat said, “May the king not say that.”
فَدَعَا مَلِكُ إِسْرَائِيلَ خَصِيًّا وَقَالَ: «أَسْرِعْ إِلَيَّ بِمِيخَا بْنِ يَمْلَةَ». ٩ 9
Then the king of Israel called an officer and commanded, “Bring Micaiah son of Imlah, right away.”
وَكَانَ مَلِكُ إِسْرَائِيلَ وَيَهُوشَافَاطُ مَلِكُ يَهُوذَا جَالِسَيْنِ كُلُّ وَاحِدٍ عَلَى كُرْسِيِّهِ، لَابِسَيْنِ ثِيَابَهُمَا فِي سَاحَةٍ عِنْدَ مَدْخَلِ بَابِ ٱلسَّامِرَةِ، وَجَمِيعُ ٱلْأَنْبِيَاءِ يَتَنَبَّأُونَ أَمَامَهُمَا. ١٠ 10
Now Ahab the king of Israel and Jehoshaphat the king of Judah were sitting each on a throne, clothed in their robes, in an open place at the entrance of the gate of Samaria, and all the prophets were prophesying before them.
وَعَمِلَ صِدْقِيَّا بْنُ كَنْعَنَةَ لِنَفْسِهِ قَرْنَيْ حَدِيدٍ وَقَالَ: «هَكَذَا قَالَ ٱلرَّبُّ: بِهَذِهِ تَنْطَحُ ٱلْأَرَامِيِّينَ حَتَّى يَفْنَوْا». ١١ 11
Zedekiah son of Kenaanah made himself horns of iron and said, “Yahweh says this: 'With these you will push the Arameans until they are consumed.'”
وَتَنَبَّأَ جَمِيعُ ٱلْأَنْبِيَاءِ هَكَذَا قَائِلِينَ: «ٱصْعَدْ إِلَى رَامُوتَ جِلْعَادَ وَأَفْلِحْ، فَيَدْفَعَهَا ٱلرَّبُّ لِيَدِ ٱلْمَلِكِ». ١٢ 12
Then all the prophets prophesied the same, saying, “Attack Ramoth Gilead and win, for Yahweh has given it into the hand of the king.”
وَأَمَّا ٱلرَّسُولُ ٱلَّذِي ذَهَبَ لِيَدْعُوَ مِيخَا فَكَلَّمَهُ قَائِلًا: «هُوَذَا كَلَامُ جَمِيعِ ٱلْأَنْبِيَاءِ بِفَمٍ وَاحِدٍ خَيْرٌ لِلْمَلِكِ، فَلْيَكُنْ كَلَامُكَ مِثْلَ كَلَامِ وَاحِدٍ مِنْهُمْ، وَتَكَلَّمْ بِخَيْرٍ». ١٣ 13
The messenger who went to call Micaiah spoke to him, saying, “Now look, the words of the prophets declare good things to the king with one mouth. Please let your word be like one of them and say good things.”
فَقَالَ مِيخَا: «حَيٌّ هُوَ ٱلرَّبُّ، إِنَّ مَا يَقُولُهُ لِيَ ٱلرَّبُّ بِهِ أَتَكَلَّمُ». ١٤ 14
Micaiah replied, “As Yahweh lives, it is what Yahweh says to me that I will say.”
وَلَمَّا أَتَى إِلَى ٱلْمَلِكِ قَالَ لَهُ ٱلْمَلِكُ: «يَا مِيخَا، أَنَصْعَدُ إِلَى رَامُوتَ جِلْعَادَ لِلْقِتَالِ، أَمْ نَمْتَنِعُ؟» فَقَالَ لَهُ: «ٱصْعَدْ وَأَفْلِحْ فَيَدْفَعَهَا ٱلرَّبُّ لِيَدِ ٱلْمَلِكِ». ١٥ 15
When he came to the king, the king said to him, “Micaiah, should we go to Ramoth Gilead for battle, or not?” Micaiah answered him, “Attack and win. Yahweh will give it into the hand of the king.”
فَقَالَ لَهُ ٱلْمَلِكُ: «كَمْ مَرَّةٍ ٱسْتَحْلَفْتُكَ أَنْ لَا تَقُولَ لِي إِلَّا ٱلْحَقَّ بِٱسْمِ ٱلرَّبِّ». ١٦ 16
Then the king said to him, “How many times must I require you to swear to tell me nothing but the truth in the name of Yahweh?”
فَقَالَ: «رَأَيْتُ كُلَّ إِسْرَائِيلَ مُشَتَّتِينَ عَلَى ٱلْجِبَالِ كَخِرَافٍ لَا رَاعِيَ لَهَا. فَقَالَ ٱلرَّبُّ: لَيْسَ لِهَؤُلَاءِ أَصْحَابٌ، فَلْيَرْجِعُوا كُلُّ وَاحِدٍ إِلَى بَيْتِهِ بِسَلَامٍ». ١٧ 17
So Micaiah said, “I saw all Israel scattered to the mountains, like sheep who have no shepherd, and Yahweh said, 'These have no shepherd. Let every man return to his house in peace.'”
فَقَالَ مَلِكُ إِسْرَائِيلَ لِيَهُوشَافَاطَ: «أَمَا قُلْتُ لَكَ إِنَّهُ لَا يَتَنَبَّأُ عَلَيَّ خَيْرًا بَلْ شَرًّا؟» ١٨ 18
So the king of Israel said to Jehoshaphat, “Did I not tell you that he would not prophesy good concerning me, but only disaster?”
وَقَالَ: «فَٱسْمَعْ إِذًا كَلَامَ ٱلرَّبِّ: قَدْ رَأَيْتُ ٱلرَّبَّ جَالِسًا عَلَى كُرْسِيِّهِ، وَكُلُّ جُنْدِ ٱلسَّمَاءِ وُقُوفٌ لَدَيْهِ عَنْ يَمِينِهِ وَعَنْ يَسَارِهِ. ١٩ 19
Then Micaiah said, “Therefore hear the word of Yahweh: I saw Yahweh sitting on his throne, and all the host of heaven were standing by him on his right hand and on his left.
فَقَالَ ٱلرَّبُّ: مَنْ يُغْوِي أَخْآبَ فَيَصْعَدَ وَيَسْقُطَ فِي رَامُوتَ جِلْعَادَ؟ فَقَالَ هَذَا هَكَذَا، وَقَالَ ذَاكَ هَكَذَا. ٢٠ 20
Yahweh said, 'Who will entice Ahab, so that he may go up and fall at Ramoth Gilead?' One of them said this and another one said that.
ثُمَّ خَرَجَ ٱلرُّوحُ وَوَقَفَ أَمَامَ ٱلرَّبِّ وَقَالَ: أَنَا أُغْوِيهِ. وَقَالَ لَهُ ٱلرَّبُّ: بِمَاذَا؟ ٢١ 21
Then a spirit came forward, stood before Yahweh, and said, 'I will entice him.' Yahweh said to him, 'How?'
فَقَالَ: أَخْرُجُ وَأَكُونُ رُوحَ كَذِبٍ فِي أَفْوَاهِ جَمِيعِ أَنْبِيَائِهِ. فَقَالَ: إِنَّكَ تُغْوِيهِ وَتَقْتَدِرُ، فَٱخْرُجْ وَٱفْعَلْ هَكَذَا. ٢٢ 22
The spirit replied, 'I will go out and be a lying spirit in the mouth of all his prophets.' Yahweh replied, 'You will entice him, and you will also be successful. Go now and do so.'
وَٱلْآنَ هُوَذَا قَدْ جَعَلَ ٱلرَّبُّ رُوحَ كَذِبٍ فِي أَفْوَاهِ جَمِيعِ أَنْبِيَائِكَ هَؤُلَاءِ، وَٱلرَّبُّ تَكَلَّمَ عَلَيْكَ بِشَرٍّ». ٢٣ 23
Now see, Yahweh has put a lying spirit in the mouth of all these prophets of yours, and Yahweh has decreed disaster for you.”
فَتَقَدَّمَ صِدْقِيَّا بْنُ كَنْعَنَةَ وَضَرَبَ مِيخَا عَلَى ٱلْفَكِّ وَقَالَ: «مِنْ أَيْنَ عَبَرَ رُوحُ ٱلرَّبِّ مِنِّي لِيُكَلِّمَكَ؟» ٢٤ 24
Then Zedekiah son of Kenaanah, came up, slapped Micaiah on the cheek, and said, “Which way did the Spirit of Yahweh take to go from me to speak to you?”
فَقَالَ مِيخَا: «إِنَّكَ سَتَرَى فِي ذَلِكَ ٱلْيَوْمِ ٱلَّذِي تَدْخُلُ فِيهِ مِنْ مِخْدَعٍ إِلَى مِخْدَعٍ لِتَخْتَبِئَ». ٢٥ 25
Micaiah said, “Look, you will see on that day when you will go to hide in an inner room.”
فَقَالَ مَلِكُ إِسْرَائِيلَ: «خُذْ مِيخَا وَرُدَّهُ إِلَى آمُونَ رَئِيسِ ٱلْمَدِينَةِ، وَإِلَى يُوآشَ ٱبْنِ ٱلْمَلِكِ، ٢٦ 26
The king of Israel said to his servant, “Seize Micaiah and take him to Amon, the governor of the city, and to Joash, my son.
وَقُلْ هَكَذَا قَالَ ٱلْمَلِكُ: ضَعُوا هَذَا فِي ٱلسِّجْنِ، وَأَطْعِمُوهُ خُبْزَ ٱلضِّيقِ وَمَاءَ ٱلضِّيقِ حَتَّى آتِيَ بِسَلَامٍ». ٢٧ 27
Say to him, 'The king says, Put this man in prison and feed him with only a little bread and only a little water, until I come safely.'”
فَقَالَ مِيخَا: «إِنْ رَجَعْتَ بِسَلَامٍ فَلَمْ يَتَكَلَّمِ ٱلرَّبُّ بِي». وَقَالَ: «ٱسْمَعُوا أَيُّهَا ٱلشَّعْبُ أَجْمَعُونَ». ٢٨ 28
Then Micaiah said, “If you return safely, then Yahweh has not spoken by me.” Then he added, “Listen to this, all you people.”
فَصَعِدَ مَلِكُ إِسْرَائِيلَ وَيَهُوشَافَاطُ مَلِكُ يَهُوذَا إِلَى رَامُوتَ جِلْعَادَ. ٢٩ 29
So Ahab, the king of Israel, and Jehoshaphat, the king of Judah, went up to Ramoth Gilead.
فَقَالَ مَلِكُ إِسْرَائِيلَ لِيَهُوشَافَاطَ: «إِنِّي أَتَنَكَّرُ وَأَدْخُلُ ٱلْحَرْبَ، وَأَمَّا أَنْتَ فَٱلْبَسْ ثِيَابَكَ». فَتَنَكَّرَ مَلِكُ إِسْرَائِيلَ وَدَخَلَ ٱلْحَرْبَ. ٣٠ 30
The king of Israel said to Jehoshaphat, “I will disguise myself and go into the battle, but you put on your royal robes.” So the king of Israel disguised himself and went into the battle.
وَأَمَرَ مَلِكُ أَرَامَ رُؤَسَاءَ ٱلْمَرْكَبَاتِ ٱلَّتِي لَهُ، ٱلِٱثْنَيْنِ وَٱلثَّلَاثِينَ، وَقَالَ: «لَا تُحَارِبُوا صَغِيرًا وَلَا كَبِيرًا إِلَّا مَلِكَ إِسْرَائِيلَ وَحْدَهُ». ٣١ 31
Now the king of Aram had commanded the thirty-two captains of his chariots, saying, “Do not attack unimportant or important soldiers. Instead, attack only the king of Israel.”
فَلَمَّا رَأَى رُؤَسَاءُ ٱلْمَرْكَبَاتِ يَهُوشَافَاطَ، قَالُوا: «إِنَّهُ مَلِكُ إِسْرَائِيلَ» فَمَالُوا عَلَيْهِ لِيُقَاتِلُوهُ، فَصَرَخَ يَهُوشَافَاطُ. ٣٢ 32
It came about that when the captains of the chariots saw Jehoshaphat they said, “Surely that is the king of Israel.” They turned to attack him, so Jehoshaphat cried out.
فَلَمَّا رَأَى رُؤَسَاءُ ٱلْمَرْكَبَاتِ أَنَّهُ لَيْسَ مَلِكَ إِسْرَائِيلَ رَجَعُوا عَنْهُ. ٣٣ 33
It came about that when the commanders of the chariots saw that it was not the king of Israel, they turned back from pursuing him.
وَإِنَّ رَجُلًا نَزَعَ فِي قَوْسِهِ غَيْرَ مُتَعَمِّدٍ وَضَرَبَ مَلِكَ إِسْرَائِيلَ بَيْنَ أَوْصَالِ ٱلدِّرْعِ. فَقَالَ لِمُدِيرِ مَرْكَبَتِهِ: «رُدَّ يَدَكَ وَأَخْرِجْنِي مِنَ ٱلْجَيْشِ لِأَنِّي قَدْ جُرِحْتُ». ٣٤ 34
But a certain man drew his bow at random and shot the king of Israel between the joints of his armor. Then Ahab said to the driver of his chariot, “Turn around and carry me out of the battle, for I am badly wounded.”
وَٱشْتَدَّ ٱلْقِتَالُ فِي ذَلِكَ ٱلْيَوْمِ، وَأُوقِفَ ٱلْمَلِكُ فِي مَرْكَبَتِهِ مُقَابِلَ أَرَامَ، وَمَاتَ عِنْدَ ٱلْمَسَاءِ، وَجَرَى دَمُ ٱلْجُرْحِ إِلَى حِضْنِ ٱلْمَرْكَبَةِ. ٣٥ 35
The battle grew worse that day and the king was held up in his chariot facing the Arameans. He died in the evening. The blood ran out from his wound into the bottom of the chariot.
وَعَبَرَتِ ٱلرَّنَّةُ فِي ٱلْجُنْدِ عِنْدَ غُرُوبِ ٱلشَّمْسِ قَائِلًا: «كُلُّ رَجُلٍ إِلَى مَدِينَتِهِ، وَكُلُّ رَجُلٍ إِلَى أَرْضِهِ». ٣٦ 36
Then about the time the sun was going down, a cry went up throughout the army, saying, “Every man should go back to his city; and every man should go back to his region!”
فَمَاتَ ٱلْمَلِكُ وَأُدْخِلَ ٱلسَّامِرَةَ فَدَفَنُوا ٱلْمَلِكَ فِي ٱلسَّامِرَةِ. ٣٧ 37
So King Ahab died and was brought to Samaria, and they buried him in Samaria.
وَغُسِلَتِ ٱلْمَرْكَبَةُ فِي بِرْكَةِ ٱلسَّامِرَةِ فَلَحَسَتِ ٱلْكِلَابُ دَمَهُ، وَغَسَلُوا سِلَاحَهُ. حَسَبَ كَلَامِ ٱلرَّبِّ ٱلَّذِي تَكَلَّمَ بِهِ. ٣٨ 38
They washed the chariot by the pool of Samaria, and the dogs licked up his blood (this was where the prostitutes bathed), just as the word of Yahweh had declared.
وَبَقِيَّةُ أُمُورِ أَخْآبَ وَكُلُّ مَا فَعَلَ، وَبَيْتُ ٱلْعَاجِ ٱلَّذِي بَنَاهُ، وَكُلُّ ٱلْمُدُنِ ٱلَّتِي بَنَاهَا، أَمَا هِيَ مَكْتُوبَةٌ فِي سِفْرِ أَخْبَارِ ٱلْأَيَّامِ لِمُلُوكِ إِسْرَائِيلَ؟ ٣٩ 39
As for the other matters concerning Ahab, all that he did, the ivory house that he built, and all the cities that he built, are they not written in the book of the events of the kings of Israel?
فَٱضْطَجَعَ أَخْآبُ مَعَ آبَائِهِ، وَمَلَكَ أَخَزْيَا ٱبْنُهُ عِوَضًا عَنْهُ. ٤٠ 40
So Ahab slept with his ancestors, and Ahaziah his son became king in his place.
وَمَلَكَ يَهُوشَافَاطُ بْنُ آسَا عَلَى يَهُوذَا فِي ٱلسَّنَةِ ٱلرَّابِعَةِ لِأَخْآبَ مَلِكِ إِسْرَائِيلَ. ٤١ 41
Then Jehoshaphat son of Asa began to reign over Judah in the fourth year of Ahab king of Israel.
وَكَانَ يَهُوشَافَاطُ ٱبْنَ خَمْسٍ وَثَلَاثِينَ سَنَةً حِينَ مَلَكَ، وَمَلَكَ خَمْسًا وَعِشْرِينَ سَنَةً فِي أُورُشَلِيمَ، وَٱسْمُ أُمِّهِ عَزُوبَةُ بِنْتُ شَلْحِي. ٤٢ 42
Jehoshaphat was thirty-five years old when he began to reign, and he reigned in Jerusalem twenty-five years. His mother's name was Azubah, the daughter of Shilhi.
وَسَارَ فِي كُلِّ طَرِيقِ آسَا أَبِيهِ. لَمْ يَحِدْ عَنْهَا، إِذْ عَمِلَ ٱلْمُسْتَقِيمَ فِي عَيْنَيِ ٱلرَّبِّ. إِلَّا أَنَّ ٱلْمُرْتَفَعَاتِ لَمْ تُنْتَزِعْ، بَلْ كَانَ ٱلشَّعْبُ لَا يَزَالُ يَذْبَحُ وَيُوقِدُ عَلَى ٱلْمُرْتَفَعَاتِ. ٤٣ 43
He walked in the ways of Asa, his father; he did not turn away from them; he did what was right in the eyes of Yahweh. Yet the high places were not taken away. The people were still sacrificing and burning incense on the high places.
وَصَالَحَ يَهُوشَافَاطُ مَلِكَ إِسْرَائِيلَ. ٤٤ 44
Jehoshaphat made peace with the king of Israel.
وَبَقِيَّةُ أُمُورِ يَهُوشَافَاطَ وَجَبَرُوتُهُ ٱلَّذِي أَظْهَرَهُ، وَكَيْفَ حَارَبَ، أَمَاهِيَ مَكْتُوبَةٌ فِي سِفْرِ أَخْبَارِ ٱلْأَيَّامِ لِمُلُوكِ يَهُوذَا؟ ٤٥ 45
As for the other matters concerning Jehoshaphat, and the might that he showed, and how he waged war, are they not written in the book of the events of the kings of Judah?
وَبَقِيَّةُ ٱلْمَأْبُونِينَ ٱلَّذِينَ بَقُوا فِي أَيَّامِ آسَا أَبِيهِ أَبَادَهُمْ مِنَ ٱلْأَرْضِ. ٤٦ 46
He removed from the land the rest of the cultic prostitutes who had remained in the days of his father Asa.
وَلَمْ يَكُنْ فِي أَدُومَ مَلِكٌ. مَلَكَ وَكِيلٌ. ٤٧ 47
There was no king in Edom, but a deputy ruled there.
وَعَمِلَ يَهُوشَافَاطُ سُفُنَ تَرْشِيشَ لِكَيْ تَذْهَبَ إِلَى أُوفِيرَ لِأَجْلِ ٱلذَّهَبِ، فَلَمْ تَذْهَبْ، لِأَنَّ ٱلسُّفُنَ تَكَسَّرَتْ فِي عِصْيُونَ جَابِرَ. ٤٨ 48
Jehoshaphat built oceangoing ships; they were to go to Ophir for gold, but they did not go because the ships were wrecked at Ezion Geber.
حِينَئِذٍ قَالَ أَخَزْيَا بْنُ أَخْآبَ لِيَهُوشَافَاطَ: «لِيَذْهَبْ عَبِيدِي مَعَ عَبِيدِكَ فِي ٱلسُّفُنِ». فَلَمْ يَشَأْ يَهُوشَافَاطُ. ٤٩ 49
Then Ahaziah son of Ahab said to Jehoshaphat, “Let my servants sail with your servants in the ships.” But Jehoshaphat would not allow it.
وَٱضْطَجَعَ يَهُوشَافَاطُ مَعَ آبَائِهِ، وَدُفِنَ مَعَ آبَائِهِ فِي مَدِينَةِ دَاوُدَ أَبِيهِ، فَمَلَكَ يَهُورَامُ ٱبْنُهُ عِوَضًا عَنْهُ. ٥٠ 50
Jehoshaphat slept with his ancestors and was buried with them in the city of David, his ancestor; Jehoram his son became king in his place.
أَخَزْيَا بْنُ أَخْآبَ مَلَكَ عَلَى إِسْرَائِيلَ فِي ٱلسَّامِرَةِ فِي ٱلسَّنَةِ ٱلسَّابِعَةَ عَشْرَةَ لِيَهُوشَافَاطَ مَلِكِ يَهُوذَا. مَلَكَ عَلَى إِسْرَائِيلَ سَنَتَيْنِ. ٥١ 51
Ahaziah son of Ahab began to reign over Israel in Samaria in the seventeenth year of Jehoshaphat king of Judah, and he reigned two years over Israel.
وَعَمِلَ ٱلشَّرَّ فِي عَيْنَيِ ٱلرَّبِّ، وَسَارَ فِي طَرِيقِ أَبِيهِ وَطَرِيقِ أُمِّهِ، وَطَرِيقِ يَرُبْعَامَ بْنِ نَبَاطَ ٱلَّذِي جَعَلَ إِسْرَائِيلَ يُخْطِئُ، ٥٢ 52
He did what was evil in the sight of Yahweh and walked in the way of his father, in the way of his mother, and in the way of Jeroboam son of Nebat, by which he led Israel to sin.
وَعَبَدَ ٱلْبَعْلَ وَسَجَدَ لَهُ وَأَغَاظَ ٱلرَّبَّ إِلَهَ إِسْرَائِيلَ، حَسَبَ كُلِّ مَا فَعَلَ أَبُوهُ. ٥٣ 53
He served Baal and worshiped him and so he provoked Yahweh, the God of Israel, to anger, just as his father had done.
