Psa 137:7 Remember, O LORD, the
children of Edom in the day of Jerusalem; who said, Raze it, raze it, even to the foundation thereof.
Psa 137:8 O daughter of
Babylon, who art to be destroyed; happy shall he be, that rewardeth thee as thou hast
Psa 137:9 Happy shall he be, that taketh and dasheth thy
little ones against the stones.
2Ch 28:1 Ahaz [was] twenty years old when he began
to reign, and he reigned sixteen years in Jerusalem: but he did not [that which was] right in the sight of the
LORD, like David his father:
2Ch 28:2 For he walked in
the ways of the kings of Israel, and made also molten images for Baalim.
2Ch 28:3 Moreover he burnt
incense in the valley of the son of Hinnom, and burnt his children in the fire, after the
abominations of the heathen whom the LORD had cast out before the children of Israel.
2Ch 28:4 He sacrificed also
and burnt incense in the high places, and on the hills, and under every green tree.
2Ch 28:5 Wherefore the LORD
his God delivered him into the hand of the king of Syria; and they smote him, and carried
away a great multitude of them captives, and brought [them] to Damascus. And he was also delivered into the hand of the king of Israel, who
smote him with a great slaughter.
2Ch 28:6 For Pekah the son
of Remaliah slew in Judah an hundred and twenty thousand in one day, [which were] all valiant men; because they
had forsaken the LORD God of their fathers.
2Ch 28:7 And Zichri, a
mighty man of Ephraim, slew Maaseiah the king's son, and Azrikam the governor of the
house, and Elkanah [that was] next to the king.
2Ch 28:8 And the children
of Israel carried away captive of their brethren two hundred thousand, women, sons, and
daughters, and took also away much spoil from them, and brought the spoil to Samaria.
2Ch 28:9 But a prophet of
the LORD was there, whose name [was] Oded: and he went out before the host that came to Samaria, and said unto them,
Behold, because the LORD God of your fathers was wroth with Judah, he hath delivered them
into your hand, and ye have slain them in a rage [that] reacheth up unto heaven.
2Ch 28:10 And now ye
purpose to keep under the children of Judah and Jerusalem for bondmen and bondwomen unto
you: [but are there]
not with you, even with you, sins against the LORD your God?
2Ch 28:11 Now hear me
therefore, and deliver the captives again, which ye have taken captive of your brethren:
for the fierce wrath of the LORD [is] upon you.
2Ch 28:12 Then certain of
the heads of the children of Ephraim, Azariah the son of Johanan, Berechiah the son of
Meshillemoth, and Jehizkiah the son of Shallum, and Amasa the son of Hadlai, stood up
against them that came from the war,
2Ch 28:13 And said unto
them, Ye shall not bring in the captives hither: for whereas we have offended against the
LORD [already], ye
intend to add [more] to
our sins and to our trespass: for our trespass is great, and [there is] fierce wrath against Israel.
2Ch 28:14 So the armed men
left the captives and the spoil before the princes and all the congregation.
2Ch 28:15 And the men which
were expressed by name rose up, and took the captives, and with the spoil clothed all that
were naked among them, and arrayed them, and shod them, and gave them to eat and to drink,
and anointed them, and carried all the feeble of them upon asses, and brought them to
Jericho, the city of palm trees, to their brethren: then they returned to Samaria.
2Ch 28:16 At that time did
king Ahaz send unto the kings of Assyria to help him.
2Ch 28:17 For again the
Edomites had come and smitten Judah, and carried away captives.
2Ch 28:18 The Philistines also had
invaded the cities of the low country, and of the south of Judah, and had taken
Bethshemesh, and Ajalon, and Gederoth, and Shocho with the villages thereof, and Timnah
with the villages thereof, Gimzo also and the villages thereof: and they dwelt there.
