2 Chronicles 13

See also 1 Kings 15. Abijam there = Abijah here. This is 'a sermon' related to the breakup of the southern and northern kingdoms. It is evident that the seeds of the breakup are early in the time of Samuel.

2 Chronicles 13 Fn Min Max Syll
בִּשְׁנַ֛ת שְׁמוֹנֶ֥ה עֶשְׂרֵ֖ה לַמֶּ֣לֶךְ יָרָבְעָ֑ם
וַיִּמְלֹ֥ךְ אֲבִיָּ֖ה עַל־יְהוּדָֽה
1 In year of the eighteenth of king Jeroboam,
and Abijah reigned over Judah.
3d 4B 13
10
שָׁל֣וֹשׁ שָׁנִ֗ים מָלַךְ֙ בִּיר֣וּשָׁלִַ֔ם וְשֵׁ֣ם אִמּ֔וֹ מִיכָיָ֥הוּ בַת־אוּרִיאֵ֖ל מִן־גִּבְעָ֑ה
וּמִלְחָמָ֥ה הָיְתָ֛ה בֵּ֥ין אֲבִיָּ֖ה וּבֵ֥ין יָרָבְעָֽם
2 Three years he reigned in Jerusalem, and the name of his mother was Michaiah, the daughter of Uriel from Gibeah.
And there was war between Abijah and Jeroboam.
3d 4B 25
15
וַיֶּאְסֹ֨ר אֲבִיָּ֜ה אֶת־הַמִּלְחָמָ֗ה בְּחַ֙יִל֙ גִּבּוֹרֵ֣י מִלְחָמָ֔ה אַרְבַּע־מֵא֥וֹת אֶ֖לֶף אִ֣ישׁ בָּח֑וּר
וְיָרָבְעָ֗ם עָרַ֤ךְ עִמּוֹ֙ מִלְחָמָ֔ה בִּשְׁמוֹנֶ֨ה מֵא֥וֹת אֶ֛לֶף אִ֥ישׁ בָּח֖וּר גִּבּ֥וֹר חָֽיִל
3 And Abijah bound the battle with a force of valiant men of battle, four hundred thousand chosen men.
And Jeroboam arranged for battle with him, eight hundred thousand chosen men of valour and force.
3d 4C 29
25
וַיָּ֣קָם אֲבִיָּ֗ה מֵעַל֙ לְהַ֣ר צְמָרַ֔יִם אֲשֶׁ֖ר בְּהַ֣ר אֶפְרָ֑יִם
וַיֹּ֕אמֶר שְׁמָע֖וּנִי יָרָבְעָ֥ם וְכָל־יִשְׂרָאֵֽל
4 And Abijah arose on mount Tsemaraim, which is in mount Ephraim,
and said, Hear me, Jeroboam and all Israel.
3e 4B 20
15
הֲלֹ֤א לָכֶם֙ לָדַ֔עַת כִּ֞י יְהוָ֣ה ׀ אֱלֹהֵ֣י יִשְׂרָאֵ֗ל נָתַ֨ן מַמְלָכָ֧ה לְדָוִ֛יד עַל־יִשְׂרָאֵ֖ל לְעוֹלָ֑ם
ל֥וֹ וּלְבָנָ֖יו בְּרִ֥ית מֶֽלַח
5 Is it not for you to know that Yahweh the God of Israel gave the kingdom to David over Israel forever,
for him and for his children, a covenant of salt?
3c 4C 31
8
וַיָּ֙קָם֙ יָרָבְעָ֣ם בֶּן־נְבָ֔ט עֶ֖בֶד שְׁלֹמֹ֣ה בֶן־דָּוִ֑יד
וַיִּמְרֹ֖ד עַל־אֲדֹנָֽיו
6 Yet Jeroboam has arisen, child of Nebat the servant of Solomon child of David,
and he has mutinied against his master.
3e 4B 17
7
וַיִּקָּבְצ֣וּ עָלָ֗יו אֲנָשִׁ֤ים רֵקִים֙ בְּנֵ֣י בְלִיַּ֔עַל וַיִּֽתְאַמְּצ֖וּ עַל־רְחַבְעָ֣ם בֶּן־שְׁלֹמֹ֑ה
וּרְחַבְעָ֗ם הָ֤יָה נַ֙עַר֙ וְרַךְ־לֵבָ֔ב וְלֹ֥א הִתְחַזַּ֖ק לִפְנֵיהֶֽם
7 And empty men have collected themselves to him, children of worthlessness, and they assured themselves over Rehoboam child of Solomon,
but Rehoboam was a youth and tender of heart, and was not resolute facing them.
3e 4C 29
19
וְעַתָּ֣ה ׀ אַתֶּ֣ם אֹֽמְרִ֗ים לְהִתְחַזֵּק֙ לִפְנֵי֙ מַמְלֶ֣כֶת יְהוָ֔ה בְּיַ֖ד בְּנֵ֣י דָוִ֑יד
וְאַתֶּם֙ הָמ֣וֹן רָ֔ב וְעִמָּכֶם֙ עֶגְלֵ֣י זָהָ֔ב אֲשֶׁ֨ר עָשָׂ֥ה לָכֶ֛ם יָרָבְעָ֖ם לֵאלֹהִֽים
8 And now you say to be resolute before the kingdom of Yahweh by the hand of the children of David,
and you, an abundant tumult, and with you calves of gold that Jeroboam has made for you for gods.
3d 4B 24
26
הֲלֹ֤א הִדַּחְתֶּם֙ אֶת־כֹּהֲנֵ֣י יְהוָ֔ה אֶת־בְּנֵ֥י אַהֲרֹ֖ן וְהַלְוִיִּ֑ם
וַתַּעֲשׂ֨וּ לָכֶ֤ם כֹּהֲנִים֙ כְּעַמֵּ֣י הָאֲרָצ֔וֹת כָּל־הַבָּ֗א לְמַלֵּ֨א יָד֜וֹ בְּפַ֤ר בֶּן־בָּקָר֙ וְאֵילִ֣ם שִׁבְעָ֔ה וְהָיָ֥ה כֹהֵ֖ן לְלֹ֥א אֱלֹהִֽים
9 Have you not banished the priests of Yahweh, the children of Aaron and the Levites?
And have you made priests for yourselves as the people of the lands? Anyone who comes to fill his hand with a young bull of the herd, and seven rams, and he will be a priest to not god.
3e 4C 21
44
וַאֲנַ֛חְנוּ יְהוָ֥ה אֱלֹהֵ֖ינוּ וְלֹ֣א עֲזַבְנֻ֑הוּ
וְכֹ֨הֲנִ֜ים מְשָׁרְתִ֤ים לַֽיהוָה֙ בְּנֵ֣י אַהֲרֹ֔ן וְהַלְוִיִּ֖ם בַּמְלָֽאכֶת
10 But for us, Yahweh is our God, and we have not forsaken him.
And priests ministering to Yahweh are children of Aaron, and the Levites in the lines of work,
3d 4C 16
21
וּמַקְטִרִ֣ים לַיהוָ֡ה עֹל֣וֹת בַּבֹּֽקֶר־בַּבֹּ֣קֶר וּבָעֶֽרֶב־בָּעֶ֣רֶב וּקְטֹֽרֶת־סַמִּים֩ וּמַעֲרֶ֨כֶת לֶ֜חֶם עַל־הַשֻּׁלְחָ֣ן הַטָּה֗וֹר וּמְנוֹרַ֨ת הַזָּהָ֤ב וְנֵרֹתֶ֙יהָ֙ לְבָעֵר֙ בָּעֶ֣רֶב בָּעֶ֔רֶב כִּֽי־שֹׁמְרִ֣ים אֲנַ֔חְנוּ אֶת־מִשְׁמֶ֖רֶת יְהוָ֣ה אֱלֹהֵ֑ינוּ
וְאַתֶּ֖ם עֲזַבְתֶּ֥ם אֹתֽוֹ
11 And burning incense to Yahweh, burnt offerings from morning to morning, and evening to evening, and incense of sweet spices, and the arrangement of bread at the clean table, and the gold lamp stand and its lamps for kindling from evening to evening, for we are those watching the watch of Yahweh our God,
but you, you have forsaken him.
3e 4C 76
8
וְהִנֵּה֩ עִמָּ֨נוּ בָרֹ֜אשׁ הָאֱלֹהִ֧ים ׀ וְכֹהֲנָ֛יו וַחֲצֹצְר֥וֹת הַתְּרוּעָ֖ה לְהָרִ֣יעַ עֲלֵיכֶ֑ם
בְּנֵ֣י יִשְׂרָאֵ֗ל אַל־תִּלָּֽחֲמ֛וּ עִם־יְהוָ֥ה אֱלֹהֵֽי־אֲבֹתֵיכֶ֖ם כִּי־לֹ֥א תַצְלִֽיחוּ
12 And behold as head, God is with us, and his priests, and the jubilant trumpeting to raise a shout against you.
O children of Israel, do not fight with Yahweh the God of your ancestors, for you will not prosper.
3c 4B 30
23
וְיָֽרָבְעָ֗ם הֵסֵב֙ אֶת־הַמַּאְרָ֔ב לָב֖וֹא מֵֽאַחֲרֵיהֶ֑ם
וַיִּֽהְיוּ֙ לִפְנֵ֣י יְהוּדָ֔ה וְהַמַּאְרָ֖ב מֵאַחֲרֵיהֶֽם
13 But Jeroboam had surrounded with an ambush to come behind them,
and they were before Judah, and from the ambush, behind them.
3e 4B 17
17
וַיִּפְנ֣וּ יְהוּדָ֗ה וְהִנֵּ֨ה לָהֶ֤ם הַמִּלְחָמָה֙ פָּנִ֣ים וְאָח֔וֹר וַֽיִּצְעֲק֖וּ לַיהוָ֑ה
וְהַכֹּ֣הֲנִ֔ים מַחְצְרִ֖ים בַּחֲצֹצְרֽוֹת
14 When Judah faced about, behold for them, the battle was facing and from behind, and they cried out to Yahweh,
and the priests trumpeted with the trumpets.
3e 4C 26
12
וַיָּרִ֖יעוּ אִ֣ישׁ יְהוּדָ֑ה
וַיְהִ֗י בְּהָרִ֙יעַ֙ אִ֣ישׁ יְהוּדָ֔ה וְהָאֱלֹהִ֗ים נָגַ֤ף אֶת־יָֽרָבְעָם֙ וְכָל־יִשְׂרָאֵ֔ל לִפְנֵ֥י אֲבִיָּ֖ה וִיהוּדָֽה
15 And the men of Judah shouted in triumph.
And it was in the jubilation of the men of Judah that God plagued Jeroboam and all Israel before Abijah and Judah.
3e 4C 8
34
וַיָּנ֥וּסוּ בְנֵי־יִשְׂרָאֵ֖ל מִפְּנֵ֣י יְהוּדָ֑ה
וַיִּתְּנֵ֥ם אֱלֹהִ֖ים בְּיָדָֽם
16 And the children of Israel withdrew in the face of Judah,
and God gave them into their hand.
3e 4B 14
9
וַיַּכּ֥וּ בָהֶ֛ם אֲבִיָּ֥ה וְעַמּ֖וֹ מַכָּ֣ה רַבָּ֑ה
וַיִּפְּל֤וּ חֲלָלִים֙ מִיִּשְׂרָאֵ֔ל חֲמֵשׁ־מֵא֥וֹת אֶ֖לֶף אִ֥ישׁ בָּחֽוּר
17 And Abijah and his people struck among them, striking many,
and the profaned from Israel fell, five hundred thousand chosen men.
3d 4C 15
19
וַיִּכָּנְע֥וּ בְנֵי־יִשְׂרָאֵ֖ל בָּעֵ֣ת הַהִ֑יא
וַיֶּֽאֶמְצוּ֙ בְּנֵ֣י יְהוּדָ֔ה כִּ֣י נִשְׁעֲנ֔וּ עַל־יְהוָ֖ה אֱלֹהֵ֥י אֲבוֹתֵיהֶֽם
18 And the children of Israel were brought to heel at that time,
and the children of Judah were assured, for they leaned on Yahweh, the God of their ancestors.
3e 4B 13
23
וַיִּרְדֹּ֣ף אֲבִיָּה֮ אַחֲרֵ֣י יָרָבְעָם֒ וַיִּלְכֹּ֤ד מִמֶּ֙נּוּ֙ עָרִ֔ים אֶת־בֵּֽית־אֵל֙ וְאֶת־בְּנוֹתֶ֔יהָ וְאֶת־יְשָׁנָ֖ה וְאֶת־בְּנוֹתֶ֑יהָ
וְאֶת־עֶפְרַ֖יִן וּבְנֹתֶֽיהָ
19 And Abijah pursued after Jeroboam, and he conquered cities from him, Bethel and its built-up areas, and Sleepytown and its built-up areas,
and Dusty and its built-up areas.
3e 4C 40
8
וְלֹֽא־עָצַ֧ר כֹּֽחַ־יָרָבְעָ֛ם ע֖וֹד בִּימֵ֣י אֲבִיָּ֑הוּ
וַיִּגְּפֵ֥הוּ יְהוָ֖ה וַיָּמֹֽת
20 And Jeroboam did not coerce power any more in the days of Abijah.
And Yahweh plagued him and he died.
3c 4B 14
9
וַיִּתְחַזֵּ֣ק אֲבִיָּ֔הוּ וַיִּ֨שָּׂא־ל֔וֹ נָשִׁ֖ים אַרְבַּ֣ע עֶשְׂרֵ֑ה
וַיּ֗וֹלֶד עֶשְׂרִ֤ים וּשְׁנַ֙יִם֙ בָּנִ֔ים וְשֵׁ֥שׁ עֶשְׂרֵ֖ה בָּנֽוֹת
21 And Abijah was resolved and took for himself fourteen women,
and he had twenty two sons and sixteen daughters.
3e 4C 18
15
וְיֶ֙תֶר֙ דִּבְרֵ֣י אֲבִיָּ֔ה וּדְרָכָ֖יו וּדְבָרָ֑יו
כְּתוּבִ֕ים בְּמִדְרַ֖שׁ הַנָּבִ֥יא עִדּֽוֹ
22 And the remaining words of Abijah, and his ways, and his words,
are written in the searching out of the prophet Iddo.
3e 4B 14
11
וַיִּשְׁכַּ֨ב אֲבִיָּ֜ה עִם־אֲבֹתָ֗יו וַיִּקְבְּר֤וּ אֹתוֹ֙ בְּעִ֣יר דָּוִ֔יד וַיִּמְלֹ֛ךְ אָסָ֥א בְנ֖וֹ תַּחְתָּ֑יו
בְּיָמָ֛יו שָׁקְטָ֥ה הָאָ֖רֶץ עֶ֥שֶׂר שָׁנִֽים
23 And Abijah was laid out with his ancestors and they entombed him in the city of David,
and Asa his son reigned in his stead. In his days the land was quiet ten years.
