RF CH2 28:1 (748 B.C.) Ahaz begins to reign. He reverts to Idolatry.
Ahaz was twenty years old at his coronation, and reigned sixteen years in Jerusalem; and did not do right in the eyes of the LORD, like David his Ancestor,
RF CH2 28:2 but followed the courses of the Kings of Israel, and also made temples to Balim.
RF CH2 28:3 Beside he burnt incense, in the Valley of Ben-hinotn, and burnt his children in the fire, like the abominable heathen, whom the EVER-LIVING drove out before the Children of Israel.
RF CH2 28:4 And he sacrificed and offered incense on the Mounds, and on the Hills, and under every shady tree;
RF CH2 28:5 consequently the EVER-LIVING GOD delivered him to the hand of the King of Aram, who defeated him, and captured a great many from us, as prisoners, and brought them to Damask. He also gave him to the power of the King of Israel, who defeated him with a great slaughter,
RF CH2 28:6 when Pekah-ben-Remaliah killed on one day in Judea a hundred and twenty thousand, all disciplined soldiers, because he had abandoned the EVER-LIVING GOD of his fathers.
RF CH2 28:7 And Zikri, a General of Ephraim killed the King's son, Masiah; and Azrikam, the Superintendent of his Palace; and Alkanah the King's Prime Minister.
RF CH2 28:8 After that they captured of the Children of Israel, two hundred thousand men and women, and plundered much property from them, and carried the plunder to Shomeron.
RF CH2 28:9 A Preacher of the EVER-LIVING was there, however, named Adad, and he went out to meet the army, as it advanced to Shomeron, and said to it; "Look!—Because the EVER-LIVING GOD of our ancestors was angry against Judea, He gave it into your hands;—but you have slaughtered amongst them in a fury that has reached the Heavens!
RF CH2 28:10 "And now you purpose to degrade into bondmen and women for yourselves, the sons of Judah and Jerusalem! But have you, yourselves, no sins against your EVER-LIVING GOD?
RF CH2 28:11 Therefore listen to me now:—send back the captives whom you have dragged after you, or the indignation of the EVER-LIVING will be upon you!"
RF CH2 28:12 (741 B.C.) The Israelite Generals order a release of Prisoners.
Then some men of the Chiefs of the children of Ephraim stood up; Azarihu-ben-Jhohanan, Berekiah-ben-Meshilmoth, and Jkhiziah-benShalum, and Amasa-ben-Khadi, against those who came from the army,
RF CH2 28:13 and said to them:—"You shall not bring the captives here! For the indignation of the EVER-LIVING would come upon us. Do you intend to add to our sins? and to our offences? Our sins are quite enough for us! and the burning anger of the EVER-LIVING is upon Israel!"
RF CH2 28:14 The Soldiers Obey, and the Officers Clothe the Prisoners.
The soldiers consequently resigned the captives and their property to the Generals, and all the Senate,
RF CH2 28:15 and the Princes, who have been specified by name, arose and comforted the captives, and clothed all the naked amongst them from the spoil, and shod them, and fed them, and gave them drink, and anointed them, and mounted all the feeble of them upon asses, and took them to Jerikho, the City of Palms, to the shelter of their countrymen, and then returned to Shomeron.
RF CH2 28:16 (740 B.C.) Ahaz applies to Aram for help.
At this time King Ahaz, sent to the King of Aram, to help him,
RF CH2 28:17 for the Edomites had come and attacked Judea and carried off captives.
RF CH2 28:18 The Philishtim also in the Cities on the slope and the south, revolted from Judah, and captured Beth-Shemsh, and Ailon, and Ghederon, and Soko, and its villages, and Thimnah, and its villages, and Ghimzo, and its villages and stayed there.
RF CH2 28:19 For Judea had provoked the EVER-LIVING by means of Ahaz King of Judea,' who had become lawless in Judea and sinned grievously against the LORD.
RF CH2 28:20 Thilgath-Pilneser betrays him.
So Thilgath-Pilneser, King of Ashur came, and consulted with him but did not strengthen him;
RF CH2 28:21 although Ahaz contributed from the House of the EVER-LIVING, and the Royal Palace, and from the Nobles, and paid the King of Ashur,—he was no help to him.
RF CH2 28:22 (740 B.C.) Ahaz adopts the Syrian Idolatry as the Court Faith.
Yet King Ahaz sinned still more against the EVER-LIVING in the period of his distress,
RF CH2 28:23 for he sacrificed to the GODs of Damask who defeated him, and said, "Because the GODs of the King of Damask help him, I will sacrifice to them so that they may help me!" But they were to him and all Israel a cause of ruin.
RF CH2 28:24 So Ahaz collected the vessels of the House of GOD, and cut up the vessels of GOD's House, and closed the Doors of the House of the EVER-LIVING, and made Altars for himself in all the squares of Jerusalem.
RF CH2 28:25 In every City of Judah he also made Mounds to offer incense to seducing GODs, and provoked the EVER-LIVING GOD of his fathers.
RF CH2 28:26 But his other doings, and all his courses, the first and the last, can be seen written in the records of the Kings of Judah and Israel.
1 NOTE: Ch. 28, v. 19. The ordinary Hebrew text reads "Israel,"—but as Ahaz was King of Judea, I rectify the Copyist's error.—F.F.
RF CH2 28:27 At last Ahaz slept with his fathers, and they buried him in the City of Jerusalem, for they would not bring him to the Tombs of the Kings of Israel. Then his son Hezekiah reigned instead of him.


AKJV ROM 8:32 He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?
