Israel Defeats Amaziah
w Then Amaziah king of Judah took counsel and sent to Joash the son of Jehoahaz, son of Jehu, king of Israel, saying, "Come, let us look one another in the face."
And Joash the king of Israel sent word to Amaziah king of Judah, x "A thistle on Lebanon sent to a cedar on Lebanon, saying, 'Give your daughter to my son for a wife,' and a wild beast of Lebanon passed by and trampled down the thistle.
You say, 'See, I have struck down Edom,' and y your heart has lifted you up in boastfulness. But now stay at home. Why should you provoke trouble so that you fall, you and Judah with you?"
But Amaziah would not listen, for it was of God, in order that he might give them into the hand of their enemies, z because they had sought the gods of Edom.
So Joash king of Israel went up, and he and Amaziah king of Judah faced one another in battle at Beth-shemesh, which belongs to Judah.
And Judah was defeated by Israel, and every man fled to his home.
And Joash king of Israel captured Amaziah king of Judah, the son of Joash, son of a Ahaziah, at Beth-shemesh, and brought him to Jerusalem and broke down the wall of Jerusalem for 400 cubits, from b the Ephraim Gate to the Corner Gate.
And he seized all the gold and silver, and all the vessels that were found in the house of God, in the care of c Obed-edom. He seized also the treasuries of the king's house, also hostages, and he returned to Samaria.
d Amaziah the son of Joash, king of Judah, lived fifteen years after the death of Joash the son of Jehoahaz, king of Israel.
Now the rest of the deeds of Amaziah, from first to last, are they not written in the Book of the Kings of Judah and Israel?
From the time when he turned away from the Lord they made a conspiracy against him in Jerusalem, and he fled to Lachish. But they sent after him to Lachish and put him to death there.
And they brought him upon horses, and he was buried with his fathers in the city of David.
