RF CH2 21:1 (890 B.C.) At last Jehoshaphat slept with his fathers, and was buried with his ancestors, in the City of David, and Jehoram, his son reigned instead of him.
RF CH2 21:2 His brothers the sons of Jehoshaphat were Azariah, Jakhial, and Zakerihu, and Azrihu, and Mikal, and Shefatiah.—All these were sons of Jehoshaphat, King of Israel,
RF CH2 21:3 and their father gave them large endowments in money and property, with fortified towns in Judea; but gave the Kingdom to Jehoram, because he was his first born.
RF CH2 21:4 But when Jehoram arose to the dominions of his father, and had secured himself, he murdered the whole of his brothers, and also some of the nobles of Israel.
RF CH2 21:5 (889 B.C.) Jehoram was thirty-two years of age at his coronation, and he reigned eight years in Jerusalem,
RF CH2 21:6 and followed the path of the Kings of Israel,—just as the House of Ahab did,—for the daughter of Ahab became his wife. So he did evil in the eyes of the EVER-LIVING.
RF CH2 21:7 But the EVER-LIVING did not wish to desolate the House of David, because of the Covenant made with David, and because he promised to give a light to him and his sons for all time.
RF CH2 21:8 (889 B.C.) Edom Revolts from Judea.
In his days Edom revolted from under the hand of Judah, and elected a King over themselves.
RF CH2 21:9 Jehoram therefore advanced along with his Generals and all his chariots; but he was risen upon in the night and was defeated by Edom, who surrounded himself, and the Commanders of his chariots.
RF CH2 21:10 Thus Edom revolted from under the hand of Judea to this day. Libnah also at the same time revolted from under his hand, because he had abandoned the EVER-LIVING GOD of his fathers.
RF CH2 21:11 He also erected Mounds in the Cities of Judah, and caused the population of Jerusalem to whore, and forced Judea to do it.
RF CH2 21:12 So a letter came to him from Elisha, the Preacher, to say;—"Thus says the EVER-LIVING, the GOD of David your ancestor, since you have not followed the course of your father Jehoshaphat and the path of Asa, King of Judea,
RF CH2 21:13 but have walked in the ways of the Kings of Israel, and have prostituted Judea and the inhabitants of Jerusalem, as the House of Ahab prostituted; and also have murdered your brothers of your father's family, who were better than yourself;
RF CH2 21:14 be sure the EVER-LIVING will strike with a great disease your children, and your wives, and property,
RF CH2 21:15 and all your people; and yourself with many diseases in your bowels; until your bowels will come out day by day in consequence of your disease!"
RF CH2 21:16 (887 B.C.) The EVER-LIVING consequently aroused the spirit of the Philishtim against Jehoram, with the Arabians, who were at the side of the Kushim,
RF CH2 21:17 and they came up to Judea and broke into it, and captured all the property they found belonging to the family of the King, and also his children and wives, and did not leave him a child except Jehoahaz, his youngest son.
RF CH2 21:18 And after all that the EVER-LIVING struck him within his bowels with an incurable disease,
RF CH2 21:19 which recurred from day to day, and as time went on, at the end of a period of two years, his bowels came out in consequence of his disease, and he died in grievous sufferings. Consequently his people did not make burnings for him, like the burnings for his fathers.
RF CH2 21:20 Character of Jehoram.
At his coronation he was thirty-two years of age, and he reigned in Jerusalem eight years;—and he departed unregretted. So they buried him in the City of David, but not in the Tombs of the Kings.
