2 Chronicles 21 ©
Jehoshaphat's death: Jehoram succeedeth him, and slayeth his brethren. His wicked reign, Edom and Libnah revolt. Elijah's written prophecy against him. The Philistines and Arabians carry off his substance, his wives, and all his sons, except Jehoahaz. His incurable disease, loathsome death, and burial.
And he had brethren the sons of Jehoshaphat, Azariah, and Jehiel, and Zechariah, and Azariah, and Michael, and Shephatiah: all these were the sons of Jehoshaphat king of Israel.
¶Jehoram was thirty and two years old gwhen he began to reign, and he reigned eight years in Jerusalem.
But hast vwalked in the way of the kings of Israel, and hast made Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem to go a wwhoring, like to the xwhoredoms of the house of Ahab, and also hast yslain thy brethren of thy father's house, which were better than thyself:
Behold, with a 3great plague will the LORD smite thy people, and thy children, and thy wives, and all thy goods:
And thou shalt have great sickness by disease of thy bowels, until thy bowels fall out by reason of the sickness day by day.
And they came up into Judah, and brake into it, and 5carried away all the substance that was found in the king's house, and his sons also, and his wives; so that there was never a son left him, *save 6Jehoahaz, the youngest of his sons.
dThirty and two years old was he when he began to reign, and he reigned in Jerusalem eight years, and edeparted 7without being *desired. Howbeit they buried him in the city of David, but fnot in the sepulchres of the kings.
