2 Chronicles 20

Verse 1, Hebrew repeats the Ammonites with some redundancy. Perhaps a scribal error. JB and NIV correct from a Greek MS.

Verse 2, a suggestive name.

Verse 13, their little ones, their wives, and their children (בן). Compare 2 Chronicles 31:18, Jeremiah 14:16, 1 Samuel 30:3 their wives and their sons (בן) and their daughters, and Numbers 16:27 their wives and their children (בן), and their little ones. These 5 verses reflect a merism of family.

I always wondered where the Advent response came from, tomorrow go ye forth and the Lord, he will be with you. And lo and behold, here it is. Now why would these words be used? The Salvation of Yahweh is to be with them. Salvation is Yeshua. Why does the Advent sentence leave that out?

It would not be hard to imagine our families cowering before odds that seem to great for us: mental illness, addictions, accidents, diseases of infinite variety, or cancer, belligerent bombast bullies ruling, poverty, trauma. Advent should be a time of encouragement. (These enemies are worth the battle. Some of them could also be friends in disguise.)

Verse 20: note the instruction in the second part of the verse: imperative, passive, imperative, imperative. The tenses must suggest that we avoid a simplistic parallelism. No English translation that I have looked at renders prosper as imperative. I don't do Greek but it looks like an imperative to me.

Note the choir also. The Chronicler seems to like music as a weapon of war. The song in verse 21 (4 times in Chronicles, once in Jeremiah, once in Ezra) recurs frequently in the Psalms especially 136. I rendered it two ways there, 27 times as Because forever is his kindness, words in Hebrew sequence and the remaining 6 times (106, 107, 118) in other Psalms as For his kindness is forever, words in a more traditional English sequence. I anticipated the Hebrew order in Psalm 136 the one time it occurs partially in Psalm 100. I don't really have any excuse for the English order - since clearly Hebrew order will follow the music better, but I was consistently inconsistent! I have used the English order always except for Psalm 136.

The honour (הדר) of holiness is my choice rather than the beauty (יפה) of holiness. I am not allowing myself to be free with apparent synonyms. honour and beauty are quite different animals in my opinion and their stems are different. Traditional glosses are randomly inconsistent.

Verse 25, these difficult enemies might destroy themselves. Thinking of cancer today and the Nobel prize for immunotherapy. (But the raw story is more fear, tribal warfare, looting, and destruction, whatever metaphor is made of it! Note the universal of Yahweh's rule, and the destructive role of Yahweh to those he governs in all the nations.)

2 Chronicles 20 Fn Min Max Syll
וַיְהִ֣י אַֽחֲרֵיכֵ֡ן בָּ֣אוּ בְנֵי־מוֹאָב֩ וּבְנֵ֨י עַמּ֜וֹן וְעִמָּהֶ֧ם ׀ מֵֽהָעַמּוֹנִ֛ים עַל־יְהוֹשָׁפָ֖ט לַמִּלְחָמָֽה 1 And it was after this the children of Moab came, and the children of Ammon, and with them from the Ammonites,
against Jehoshaphat to war.
3c 4B 33
וַיָּבֹ֗אוּ וַיַּגִּ֤ידוּ לִֽיהוֹשָׁפָט֙ לֵאמֹ֔ר בָּ֣א עָלֶ֜יךָ הָמ֥וֹן רָ֛ב מֵעֵ֥בֶר לַיָּ֖ם מֵאֲרָ֑ם
וְהִנָּם֙ בְּחַֽצְצ֣וֹן תָּמָ֔ר הִ֖יא עֵ֥ין גֶּֽדִי
2 And they came and told Jehoshaphat, saying, an abundant tumult has come against you from beyond the sea, from Aram.
And behold, they are in Platoons-of-Palm-Tree. (This is Ein Gedi).
3d 4C 28
וַיִּרָ֕א וַיִּתֵּ֧ן יְהוֹשָׁפָ֛ט אֶת־פָּנָ֖יו לִדְר֣וֹשׁ לַיהוָ֑ה
וַיִּקְרָא־צ֖וֹם עַל־כָּל־יְהוּדָֽה
3 And Jehoshaphat was fearful and gave his presence to search out to Yahweh.
And he called a fast over all Judah.
3c 4B 17
וַיִּקָּבְצ֣וּ יְהוּדָ֔ה לְבַקֵּ֖שׁ מֵֽיְהוָ֑ה
גַּ֚ם מִכָּל־עָרֵ֣י יְהוּדָ֔ה בָּ֖אוּ לְבַקֵּ֥שׁ אֶת־יְהוָֽה
4 And Judah collected themselves to seek from Yahweh.
Even from all the cities of Judah, they came to seek Yahweh.
3e 4C 13
וַיַּעֲמֹ֣ד יְהוֹשָׁפָ֗ט בִּקְהַ֧ל יְהוּדָ֛ה וִירוּשָׁלִַ֖ם בְּבֵ֣ית יְהוָ֑ה
לִפְנֵ֖י הֶחָצֵ֥ר הַחֲדָשָֽׁה
5 And Jehoshaphat stood in the congregation of Judah and Jerusalem in the house of Yahweh,
facing the new court.
3c 4B 21
וַיֹּאמַ֗ר יְהוָ֞ה אֱלֹהֵ֤י אֲבֹתֵ֙ינוּ֙ הֲלֹ֨א אַתָּֽה־ה֤וּא אֱלֹהִים֙ בַּשָּׁמַ֔יִם וְאַתָּ֣ה מוֹשֵׁ֔ל בְּכֹ֖ל מַמְלְכ֣וֹת הַגּוֹיִ֑ם
וּבְיָדְךָ֙ כֹּ֣חַ וּגְבוּרָ֔ה וְאֵ֥ין עִמְּךָ֖ לְהִתְיַצֵּֽב
6 And he said, Yahweh the God of our ancestors, are you not he, God in the heavens? And you govern in all the kingdoms of the nations.
And in your hand is power and valour, and with you there is no one to be stationed.
3e 4C 36
הֲלֹ֣א ׀ אַתָּ֣ה אֱלֹהֵ֗ינוּ הוֹרַ֙שְׁתָּ֙ אֶת־יֹשְׁבֵי֙ הָאָ֣רֶץ הַזֹּ֔את מִלִּפְנֵ֖י עַמְּךָ֣ יִשְׂרָאֵ֑ל
וַֽתִּתְּנָ֗הּ לְזֶ֛רַע אַבְרָהָ֥ם אֹֽהַבְךָ֖ לְעוֹלָֽם
7 Are you not our God who dispossessed the inhabitants of this land from before your people Israel,
and gave it to the seed of Abraham, your love, forever?
3d 4B 27
וַיִּבְנ֨וּ לְךָ֧ ׀ בָּ֛הּ מִקְדָּ֖שׁ לְשִׁמְךָ֥ לֵאמֹֽר
8 And they have inhabited it.
And they built for you in it a sanctuary for your name, saying,
3c 4A 4
אִם־תָּב֨וֹא עָלֵ֜ינוּ רָעָ֗ה חֶרֶב֮ שְׁפוֹט֮ וְדֶ֣בֶר וְרָעָב֒ נַֽעַמְדָ֞ה לִפְנֵ֨י הַבַּ֤יִת הַזֶּה֙ וּלְפָנֶ֔יךָ כִּ֥י שִׁמְךָ֖ בַּבַּ֣יִת הַזֶּ֑ה
וְנִזְעַ֥ק אֵלֶ֛יךָ מִצָּרָתֵ֖נוּ וְתִשְׁמַ֥ע וְתוֹשִֽׁיעַ
9 If evil will come upon us, sword, judgment, or pestilence, or famine, we stand before this house and in your presence, for your name is in this house,
and we appeal to you in our adversity, then you will hear, and you will save.
3d 4C 40
וְעַתָּ֡ה הִנֵּה֩ בְנֵֽי־עַמּ֨וֹן וּמוֹאָ֜ב וְהַר־שֵׂעִ֗יר אֲ֠שֶׁר לֹֽא־נָתַ֤תָּה לְיִשְׂרָאֵל֙ לָב֣וֹא בָהֶ֔ם בְּבֹאָ֖ם מֵאֶ֣רֶץ מִצְרָ֑יִם
כִּ֛י סָ֥רוּ מֵעֲלֵיהֶ֖ם וְלֹ֥א הִשְׁמִידֽוּם
10 And now, behold, the children of Ammon and Moab and mount Seir, whom you had not permitted Israel to enter when they came from the land of Egypt,
but they turned aside from them, and did not exterminate them,
3d 4C 37
וְהִ֨נֵּה־הֵ֔ם גֹּמְלִ֖ים עָלֵ֑ינוּ
לָבוֹא֙ לְגָ֣רְשֵׁ֔נוּ מִיְּרֻשָּׁתְךָ֖ אֲשֶׁ֥ר הֽוֹרַשְׁתָּֽנוּ
11 And behold they reward us,
to enter to expel us from your possession that you gave us to possess.
3e 4B 9
אֱלֹהֵ֙ינוּ֙ הֲלֹ֣א תִשְׁפָּט־בָּ֔ם כִּ֣י אֵ֥ין בָּ֙נוּ֙ כֹּ֔חַ לִ֠פְנֵי הֶהָמ֥וֹן הָרָ֛ב הַזֶּ֖ה הַבָּ֣א עָלֵ֑ינוּ
וַאֲנַ֗חְנוּ לֹ֤א נֵדַע֙ מַֽה־נַּעֲשֶׂ֔ה כִּ֥י עָלֶ֖יךָ עֵינֵֽינוּ
12 Our God, will you not judge in them? For there is no power among us in the face of this abundant tumult that has come over us,
and we not do know what we should do, but on you are our eyes.
3d 4C 29
וְכָ֨ל־יְהוּדָ֔ה עֹמְדִ֖ים לִפְנֵ֣י יְהוָ֑ה
גַּם־טַפָּ֖ם נְשֵׁיהֶ֥ם וּבְנֵיהֶֽם
13 And all Judah stood facing Yahweh,
even their little ones, their wives, and their children.
3e 4B 11
וְיַחֲזִיאֵ֡ל בֶּן־זְכַרְיָ֡הוּ בֶּן־בְּ֠נָיָה בֶּן־יְעִיאֵ֧ל בֶּן־מַתַּנְיָ֛ה הַלֵּוִ֖י מִן־בְּנֵ֣י אָסָ֑ף
הָיְתָ֤ה עָלָיו֙ ר֣וּחַ יְהוָ֔ה בְּת֖וֹךְ הַקָּהָֽל
14 And Yaxaziel, child of Zachariah, child of Benaiah, child of Jeiel, child of Mattaniah the Levite, from the children of Asaph,
on him was the spirit of Yahweh in the midst of the congregation.
3c 4C 30
וַיֹּ֗אמֶר הַקְשִׁ֤יבוּ כָל־יְהוּדָה֙ וְיֹשְׁבֵ֣י יְרוּשָׁלִַ֔ם וְהַמֶּ֖לֶךְ יְהוֹשָׁפָ֑ט
כֹּֽה־אָמַ֨ר יְהוָ֜ה לָכֶ֗ם אַ֠תֶּם אַל־תִּֽירְא֤וּ וְאַל־תֵּחַ֙תּוּ֙ מִפְּנֵ֨י הֶהָמ֤וֹן הָרָב֙ הַזֶּ֔ה כִּ֣י לֹ֥א לָכֶ֛ם הַמִּלְחָמָ֖ה כִּ֥י לֵאלֹהִֽים
15 And he said, Attend all Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem, and the king Jehoshaphat.
Thus says Yahweh to you, Yourselves, do not fear, and do not be in disarray from the presence of this abundant tumult, for not yours is the battle but God's.
3d 4C 25
מָחָר֙ רְד֣וּ עֲלֵיהֶ֔ם הִנָּ֥ם עֹלִ֖ים בְּמַעֲלֵ֣ה הַצִּ֑יץ
וּמְצָאתֶ֤ם אֹתָם֙ בְּס֣וֹף הַנַּ֔חַל פְּנֵ֖י מִדְבַּ֥ר יְרוּאֵֽל
16 Tomorrow, descend against them. Behold, they are going up the ascent of the Blossom.
Then you will find them in the reeds of the wadi, before the wilderness of the Instruction of God.
3e 4C 17
לֹ֥א לָכֶ֖ם לְהִלָּחֵ֣ם בָּזֹ֑את
הִתְיַצְּב֣וּ עִמְד֡וּ וּרְא֣וּ אֶת־יְשׁוּעַת֩ יְהוָ֨ה עִמָּכֶ֜ם יְהוּדָ֣ה וִֽירוּשָׁלִַ֗ם אַל־תִּֽירְאוּ֙ וְאַל־תֵּחַ֔תּוּ מָחָר֙ צְא֣וּ לִפְנֵיהֶ֔ם וַיהוָ֖ה עִמָּכֶֽם
17 f Not yours to fight in this.
Present yourselves. Stand and see the salvation of Yahweh with you. Judah and Jerusalem, do not fear and do not be dismayed. Tomorrow go forth facing them, and Yahweh will be with you.
3e 4B 9
וַיִּקֹּ֧ד יְהוֹשָׁפָ֛ט אַפַּ֖יִם אָ֑רְצָה
וְכָל־יְהוּדָ֞ה וְיֹשְׁבֵ֣י יְרוּשָׁלִַ֗ם נָֽפְלוּ֙ לִפְנֵ֣י יְהוָ֔ה לְהִֽשְׁתַּחֲוֺ֖ת לַיהוָֽה
18 And Jehoshaphat bowed his head, nostrils earthward.
And all Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem, they fell in the presence of Yahweh to worship Yahweh.

וַיָּקֻ֧מוּ הַלְוִיִּ֛ם מִן־בְּנֵ֥י הַקְּהָתִ֖ים וּמִן־בְּנֵ֣י הַקָּרְחִ֑ים
לְהַלֵּ֗ל לַיהוָה֙ אֱלֹהֵ֣י יִשְׂרָאֵ֔ל בְּק֥וֹל גָּד֖וֹל לְמָֽעְלָה
19 And the Levites arose from the children of the Kohathites and from the children of the Korahites,
to praise Yahweh the God of Israel with a great voice ascending.
3c 4B 20
וַיַּשְׁכִּ֣ימוּ בַבֹּ֔קֶר וַיֵּצְא֖וּ לְמִדְבַּ֣ר תְּק֑וֹעַ
וּבְצֵאתָ֞ם עָמַ֣ד יְהוֹשָׁפָ֗ט וַיֹּ֙אמֶר֙ שְׁמָע֗וּנִי יְהוּדָה֙ וְיֹשְׁבֵ֣י יְרוּשָׁלִַ֔ם הַאֲמִ֜ינוּ בַּיהוָ֤ה אֱלֹהֵיכֶם֙ וְתֵ֣אָמֵ֔נוּ הַאֲמִ֥ינוּ בִנְבִיאָ֖יו וְהַצְלִֽיחוּ
20 And they rose early in the morning, and they went forth to the wilderness of Tekoa.
And as they went forth, Jehoshaphat stood and said, Hear me, Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem. Believe in Yahweh your God and you will be dependable. Believe in his prophets, and prosper.
3e 4C 16
וַיִּוָּעַץ֙ אֶל־הָעָ֔ם וַיַּעֲמֵ֤ד מְשֹֽׁרֲרִים֙ לַיהוָ֔ה וּֽמְהַֽלְלִ֖ים לְהַדְרַת־קֹ֑דֶשׁ
בְּצֵאת֙ לִפְנֵ֣י הֶֽחָל֔וּץ וְאֹֽמְרִים֙ הוֹד֣וּ לַיהוָ֔ה כִּ֥י לְעוֹלָ֖ם חַסְדּֽוֹ
21 And he took counsel with the people, and he installed singers to Yahweh, that they should give praise to the honour of holiness.
as they came out before the ready-armed, and to say, Give thanks to Yahweh, for his kindness is forever.
3e 4C 25
וּבְעֵת֩ הֵחֵ֨לּוּ בְרִנָּ֜ה וּתְהִלָּ֗ה נָתַ֣ן יְהוָ֣ה ׀ מְ֠אָֽרְבִים עַל־בְּנֵ֨י עַמּ֜וֹן מוֹאָ֧ב וְהַר־שֵׂעִ֛יר הַבָּאִ֥ים לִֽיהוּדָ֖ה וַיִּנָּגֵֽפוּ 22 And at the time they had commenced with a shout of joy and praise, Yahweh positioned ambushes above the children of Ammon, Moab, and mount Seir, those who came to Judah, and they were plagued. 3c 4B 40
וַ֠יַּֽעַמְדוּ בְּנֵ֨י עַמּ֧וֹן וּמוֹאָ֛ב עַל־יֹשְׁבֵ֥י הַר־שֵׂעִ֖יר לְהַחֲרִ֣ים וּלְהַשְׁמִ֑יד

וַיִּפְנוּ֙ אֶל־הֶ֣הָמ֔וֹן וְהִנָּ֧ם פְּגָרִ֛ים נֹפְלִ֥ים אַ֖רְצָה וְאֵ֥ין פְּלֵיטָֽה
24 And Judah entered the lookout to the wilderness,
and they faced the tumult, and behold, they were carcasses fallen earthward, and no one had been secured.
3c 4B 11
וַיָּבֹ֨א יְהוֹשָׁפָ֣ט וְעַמּוֹ֮ לָבֹ֣ז אֶת־שְׁלָלָם֒ וַיִּמְצְאוּ֩ בָהֶ֨ם לָרֹ֜ב וּרְכ֤וּשׁ וּפְגָרִים֙ וּכְלֵ֣י חֲמֻד֔וֹת וַיְנַצְּל֥וּ לָהֶ֖ם לְאֵ֣ין מַשָּׂ֑א
וַיִּֽהְי֞וּ יָמִ֧ים שְׁלוֹשָׁ֛ה בֹּזְזִ֥ים אֶת־הַשָּׁלָ֖ל כִּ֥י רַב־הֽוּא
25 And Jehoshaphat came and his people to loot their spoil, and they found among them for abundance, both property and carcasses, and coveted vessels that they removed for themselves, for there was no one to bear.
And they were three days looting the spoil, for it was excessive.
3c 4C 43
וּבַיּ֣וֹם הָרְבִעִ֗י נִקְהֲלוּ֙ לְעֵ֣מֶק בְּרָכָ֔ה כִּי־שָׁ֖ם בֵּרֲכ֣וּ אֶת־יְהוָ֑ה

כִּֽי־שִׂמְּחָ֥ם יְהוָ֖ה מֵֽאוֹיְבֵיהֶֽם
27 ~ And they turned, everyone of Judah and Jerusalem, and Jehoshaphat at their head, to return to Jerusalem with gladness,
for Yahweh had made them glad over their enemies.
3e 4C 30
וַיָּבֹ֙אוּ֙ יְר֣וּשָׁלִַ֔ם בִּנְבָלִ֥ים וּבְכִנֹּר֖וֹת וּבַחֲצֹצְר֑וֹת
אֶל־בֵּ֖ית יְהוָֽה
28 And they entered Jerusalem with lutes and with harps and with trumpets,
into the house of Yahweh.
3e 4B 19
וַיְהִי֙ פַּ֣חַד אֱלֹהִ֔ים עַ֖ל כָּל־מַמְלְכ֣וֹת הָאֲרָצ֑וֹת
בְּשָׁמְעָ֕ם כִּ֚י נִלְחַ֣ם יְהוָ֔ה עִ֖ם אוֹיְבֵ֥י יִשְׂרָאֵֽל
29 And the dread of God was on all the kingdoms of the lands,
when they heard that Yahweh warred with the enemies of Israel.
3e 4C 16

וַיָּ֧נַֽח ל֦וֹ אֱלֹהָ֖יו מִסָּבִֽיב
30 And the kingdom of Jehoshaphat was quiet,
and his God gave him rest on every side.
3c 4B 9
וַיִּמְלֹ֥ךְ יְהוֹשָׁפָ֖ט עַל־יְהוּדָ֑ה
בֶּן־שְׁלֹשִׁים֩ וְחָמֵ֨שׁ שָׁנָ֜ה בְּמָלְכ֗וֹ וְעֶשְׂרִ֨ים וְחָמֵ֤שׁ שָׁנָה֙ מָלַ֣ךְ בִּֽירוּשָׁלִַ֔ם וְשֵׁ֣ם אִמּ֔וֹ עֲזוּבָ֖ה בַּת־שִׁלְחִֽי
31 And Jehoshaphat reigned over Judah,
a child of thirty five years when he began to reign, and twenty five years he reigned in Jerusalem. And the name of his mother was Forsaken, the daughter of Shilhi.
3e 4C 11
וַיֵּ֗לֶךְ בְּדֶ֛רֶךְ אָבִ֥יו אָסָ֖א וְלֹא־סָ֣ר מִמֶּ֑נָּה
לַעֲשׂ֥וֹת הַיָּשָׁ֖ר בְּעֵינֵ֥י יְהוָֽה
32 And he walked in the way of his father Asa, and he did not depart from it,
doing what is upright in the eyes of Yahweh.
3d 4B 16
אַ֥ךְ הַבָּמ֖וֹת לֹא־סָ֑רוּ
וְע֤וֹד הָעָם֙ לֹא־הֵכִ֣ינוּ לְבָבָ֔ם לֵאלֹהֵ֖י אֲבֹתֵיהֶֽם
33 f But the high places they did not put aside.
And still the people did not prepare their heart for the God of their ancestors.

34 And the remaining words of Jehoshaphat, the first and the last,
behold they are written in the words of Jehu, child of Hanani, who is brought up in the record of the kings of Israel.
3e 4B 19
וְאַחֲרֵיכֵ֗ן אֶתְחַבַּר֙ יְהוֹשָׁפָ֣ט מֶֽלֶךְ־יְהוּדָ֔ה עִ֖ם אֲחַזְיָ֣ה מֶֽלֶךְ־יִשְׂרָאֵ֑ל
ה֖וּא הִרְשִׁ֥יעַ לַעֲשֽׂוֹת
35 And afterward Jehoshaphat king of Judah partnered himself with Ahaziah the king of Israel.
He acted wickedly.

36 And he partnered with him to make ships to go to Tarshish.
And they made the ships in Etsiongeber.

37 And Eliezer, child of Dodavah of Mareshah, prophesied against Jehoshaphat, saying,
Because you have partnered with Achaziah, Yahweh has breached your deeds. And the ships were shattered and could not be coerced to go to Tarshish.
3e 4C 24
