2 Kings 8
NMV
8
1Then spoke Eli-sha [my God is salvation] unto the woman, whose son he had restored to life, saying, Arise, and go youi and youri household, and stay wherever youi can stay: for the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) has called for a famine; and it shall also come upon the land seven years.
2And the woman arose, and did after the saying of the man of God-Elōhīm (The Living Word) [The Many Powered]: and she went with her household, and detained (held) in the land of the P’lishtim [Immigrants] seven years.
3And it came to pass at the seven years’ end, that the woman returned out of the land of the P’lishtim [Immigrants]: and she went forth to claim unto the king for her house and for her land.
4And the king talked with Geichazi [valley of vision] the servant of the man of God-Elōhīm (The Living Word) [The Many Powered], saying, Tell me, I pray youi, all the great things that Eli-sha [my God is salvation] has done.
5And it came to pass, as he was telling the king how he had restored a dead body to life, that, behold, the woman, whose son he had restored to life, cried to the king for her house and for her land. And Geichazi [valley of vision] said, My lord, O king, this [is] the woman, and this [is] her son, whom Eli-sha [my God is salvation] restored to life.
6And when the king asked the woman, she told him. So the king appointed unto her a certain officer, saying, Restore all that [was] hers, and all the fruits of the field since the day that she left the land, even until now.
7And Eli-sha [my God is salvation] came to Dammesek (Damascus) [silent is the sackcloth weaver]; and Ben-Hadad [son of the (false god) Hadad] the king of Aram (Syria) [exalted] was sick; and it was told him, saying, The man of God-Elōhīm (The Living Word) [The Many Powered] is come here.
8And the king said unto Haza’el [one who sees God], Take a present in youri hand, and go, meet the man of God-Elōhīm (The Living Word) [The Many Powered], and enquire of the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) by him, saying, Shall I recover of this disease?
9So Haza’el [one who sees God] went to meet him, and took a present with him, even of every good thing of Dammesek (Damascus) [silent is the sackcloth weaver], forty camels’ burden, and came and stood before him, and said, Your1s son Ben-Hadad [son of the (false god) Hadad] king of Aram (Syria) [exalted] has sent me to youi, saying, Shall I recover of this disease?
10And Eli-sha [my God is salvation] said unto him, Go, say unto him, youi may certainly recover: howbeit the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) has showed me that he shall surely die.
11And he settled his gaze on the man so long that he (Haza’el) was ashamed: and the man of God-Elōhīm (The Living Word) [The Many Powered] wept.
12And Haza’el [one who sees God] said, Why weep my lord? And he answered, Because I know the evil that youi will do unto the people of Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God]: their strong holds will youi set on fire, and their young men will youi slay with the sword, and will dash their children, and rip up their women with child.
13And Haza’el [one who sees God] said, But what, [is] youri servant? a dog? that he should do this great thing? And Eli-sha [my God is salvation] answered, The Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) has showed me that youi [shall be] king over Aram (Syria) [exalted].
14So he departed from Eli-sha [my God is salvation], and came to his master; who said to him, What said Eli-sha [my God is salvation] to youi? And he answered, He told me [that] youi should surely recover.
15And it came to pass on the morrow, that he took a thick cloth, and dipped [it] in water, and spread [it] on his face, so that he died: and Haza’el [one who sees God] reigned in his place.
16And in the fifth year of Yoram [Yehovah is exalted] the son of Ach’av [father’s brother] king of Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God], Y’hoshafat [Yehovah has judged] [being] then king of Y’hudah [Let Him (God) Be Praised], Y’horam [Yehovah is exalted] the son of Y’hoshafat [Yehovah has judged] king of Y’hudah [Let Him (God) Be Praised] began to reign.
17Thirty and two years old was he when he began to reign; and he reigned eight years in Yerushalayim [Foundation of Peace].
18And he walked in the way of the kings of Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God], as did the house of Ach’av [father’s brother]: for the daughter of Ach’av [father’s brother] was his wife: and he did evil in the sight of the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate).
19Yet the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) would not destroy Y’hudah [Let Him (God) Be Praised] for David [beloved] his servant’s sake, as he promised him to give him always a light, [and] to his children.
20In his days Edom [Red] revolted from under the hand of Y’hudah [Let Him (God) Be Praised], and made a king over themselves.
21So Yoram [Yehovah is exalted] went over to Tza’ir [small], and all the chariots with him: and he rose by night, and struck the Edomi [red] which compassed him about, and the captains of the chariots: and the people fled into their tents.
22Yet Edom [Red] revolted from under the hand of Y’hudah [Let Him (God) Be Praised] unto this day. Then Livnah [Pavement] revolted at the same time.
23And the rest of the acts of Yoram [Yehovah is exalted], and all that he did, [are] they not written in the book of the Chronicles of the Kings of Y’hudah [Let Him (God) Be Praised]?
24And Yoram [Yehovah is exalted] slept with his fathers, and was buried with his fathers in the city of David [beloved]: and Achazyah [Yehovah possesses] his son reigned in his stead.
25In the twelfth year of Yoram [Yehovah is exalted] the son of Ach’av [father’s brother] king of Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God] did Achazyah [Yehovah possesses] the son of Y’horam [Yehovah is exalted] king of Y’hudah [Let Him (God) Be Praised] begin to reign.
26Two and twenty years old [was] Achazyah [Yehovah possesses] when he began to reign; and he reigned one year in Yerushalayim [Foundation of Peace]. And his mother’s name [was] ‘Atalyahu [afflicted of the Lord], the daughter of ‘Omri [pupil of Yehovah] king of Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God].
27And he walked in the way of the house of Ach’av [father’s brother], and did evil in the sight of the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate), as [did] the house of Ach’av [father’s brother]: for he [was] the son in law of the house of Ach’av [father’s brother].
28And he went with Yoram [Yehovah is exalted] the son of Ach’av [father’s brother] to the war against Haza’el [one who sees God] king of Aram (Syria) [exalted] in Ramot-Gil’ad [rocky region]; and the Aram [Syrians] wounded Yoram [Yehovah is exalted].
29And king Yoram [Yehovah is exalted] went back to be healed in Yizre’el [God Sows] of the wounds which the Aram [Syrians] had given him at Ramah [Hill], when he fought against Haza’el [one who sees God] king of Aram (Syria) [exalted]. And Achazyah [Yehovah possesses] the son of Y’horam [Yehovah is exalted] king of Y’hudah [Let Him (God) Be Praised] went down to see Yoram [Yehovah is exalted] the son of Ach’av [father’s brother] in Yizre’el [God Sows], because he was sick.
