2 Chronicles 12 (WEBP)

[1] When the kingdom of Rehoboam was established and he was strong, he abandoned Yahweh’s law, and all Israel with him.
[2] In the fifth year of King Rehoboam, Shishak king of Egypt came up against Jerusalem, because they had trespassed against Yahweh,
[3] with twelve hundred chariots and sixty thousand horsemen. The people were without number who came with him out of Egypt: the Lubim, the Sukkiim, and the Ethiopians.
[4] He took the fortified cities which belonged to Judah, and came to Jerusalem.
[5] Now Shemaiah the prophet came to Rehoboam and to the princes of Judah, who were gathered together to Jerusalem because of Shishak, and said to them, “Yahweh says, ‘You have forsaken me, therefore I have also left you in the hand of Shishak.’ ”
[6] Then the princes of Israel and the king humbled themselves; and they said, “Yahweh is righteous.”
[7] When Yahweh saw that they humbled themselves, Yahweh’s word came to Shemaiah, saying, “They have humbled themselves. I will not destroy them, but I will grant them some deliverance, and my wrath won’t be poured out on Jerusalem by the hand of Shishak.
[8] Nevertheless they will be his servants, that they may know my service, and the service of the kingdoms of the countries.”
[9] So Shishak king of Egypt came up against Jerusalem and took away the treasures of Yahweh’s house and the treasures of the king’s house. He took it all away. He also took away the shields of gold which Solomon had made.
[10] King Rehoboam made shields of bronze in their place, and committed them to the hands of the captains of the guard, who kept the door of the king’s house.
[11] As often as the king entered into Yahweh’s house, the guard came and bore them, then brought them back into the guard room.
[12] When he humbled himself, Yahweh’s wrath turned from him, so as not to destroy him altogether. Moreover, there were good things found in Judah.
[13] So King Rehoboam strengthened himself in Jerusalem and reigned; for Rehoboam was forty-one years old when he began to reign, and he reigned seventeen years in Jerusalem, the city which Yahweh had chosen out of all the tribes of Israel to put his name there. His mother’s name was Naamah the Ammonitess.
[14] He did that which was evil, because he didn’t set his heart to seek Yahweh.
[15] Now the acts of Rehoboam, first and last, aren’t they written in the histories of Shemaiah the prophet and of Iddo the seer, in the genealogies? There were wars between Rehoboam and Jeroboam continually.
[16] Rehoboam slept with his fathers, and was buried in David’s city; and Abijah his son reigned in his place.

2 Chronicles 12 (KJVS)

[1] And it came to pass, when Rehoboam H7346 had established H3559 (8687) the kingdom H4438, and had strengthened H2393 himself, he forsook H5800 (8804) the law H8451 of the LORD H3068, and all Israel H3478 with him.
[2] And it came to pass, [that] in the fifth H2549 year H8141 of king H4428 Rehoboam H7346 Shishak H7895 king H4428 of Egypt H4714 came up H5927 (8804) against Jerusalem H3389, because they had transgressed H4603 (8804) against the LORD H3068,
[3] With twelve hundred H3967 H505 chariots H7393, and threescore H8346 thousand H505 horsemen H6571: and the people H5971 [were] without number H4557 that came H935 (8804) with him out of Egypt H4714; the Lubims H3864, the Sukkiims H5525, and the Ethiopians H3569.
[4] And he took H3920 (8799) the fenced H4694 cities H5892 which [pertained] to Judah H3063, and came H935 (8799) to Jerusalem H3389.
[5] Then came H935 (8804) Shemaiah H8098 the prophet H5030 to Rehoboam H7346, and [to] the princes H8269 of Judah H3063, that were gathered together H622 (8738) to Jerusalem H3389 because H6440 of Shishak H7895, and said H559 (8799) unto them, Thus saith H559 (8804) the LORD H3068, Ye have forsaken H5800 (8804) me, and therefore have I also H637 left H5800 (8804) you in the hand H3027 of Shishak H7895.
[6] Whereupon the princes H8269 of Israel H3478 and the king H4428 humbled H3665 (8735) themselves; and they said H559 (8799), The LORD H3068 [is] righteous H6662.
[7] And when the LORD H3068 saw H7200 (8800) that they humbled H3665 (8738) themselves, the word H1697 of the LORD H3068 came to Shemaiah H8098, saying H559 (8800), They have humbled H3665 (8738) themselves; [therefore] I will not destroy H7843 (8686) them, but I will grant H5414 (8804) them some H4592 deliverance H6413; and my wrath H2534 shall not be poured out H5413 (8799) upon Jerusalem H3389 by the hand H3027 of Shishak H7895.
[8] Nevertheless they shall be his servants H5650; that they may know H3045 (8799) my service H5656, and the service H5656 of the kingdoms H4467 of the countries H776.
[9] So Shishak H7895 king H4428 of Egypt H4714 came up H5927 (8799) against Jerusalem H3389, and took away H3947 (8799) the treasures H214 of the house H1004 of the LORD H3068, and the treasures H214 of the king’s H4428 house H1004; he took H3947 (8804) all: he carried away H3947 (8799) also the shields H4043 of gold H2091 which Solomon H8010 had made H6213 (8804).
[10] Instead of which king H4428 Rehoboam H7346 made H6213 (8799) shields H4043 of brass H5178, and committed H6485 (8689) [them] to the hands H3027 of the chief H8269 of the guard H7323 (8801), that kept H8104 (8802) the entrance H6607 of the king’s H4428 house H1004.
[11] And when H1767 the king H4428 entered H935 (8800) into the house H1004 of the LORD H3068, the guard H7323 (8801) came H935 (8804) and fetched H5375 (8804) them, and brought them again H7725 (8689) into the guard H7323 (8801) chamber H8372.
[12] And when he humbled H3665 (8736) himself, the wrath H639 of the LORD H3068 turned H7725 (8804) from him, that he would not destroy H7843 (8687) [him] altogether H3617: and also in Judah H3063 things H1697 went well H2896.
[13] So king H4428 Rehoboam H7346 strengthened H2388 (8691) himself in Jerusalem H3389, and reigned H4427 (8799): for Rehoboam H7346 [was] one H259 and forty H705 years H8141 old H1121 when he began to reign H4427 (8800), and he reigned H4427 (8804) seventeen H7651 H6240 years H8141 in Jerusalem H3389, the city H5892 which the LORD H3068 had chosen H977 (8804) out of all the tribes H7626 of Israel H3478, to put H7760 (8800) his name H8034 there. And his mother’s H517 name H8034 [was] Naamah H5279 an Ammonitess H5985.
[14] And he did H6213 (8799) evil H7451, because he prepared H3559 (8689) not his heart H3820 to seek H1875 (8800) the LORD H3068.
[15] Now the acts H1697 of Rehoboam H7346, first H7223 and last H314, [are] they not written H3789 (8803) in the book H1697 of Shemaiah H8098 the prophet H5030, and of Iddo H5714 the seer H2374 concerning genealogies H3187 (8692)? And [there were] wars H4421 between Rehoboam H7346 and Jeroboam H3379 continually H3117.
[16] And Rehoboam H7346 slept H7901 (8799) with his fathers H1, and was buried H6912 (8735) in the city H5892 of David H1732: and Abijah H29 his son H1121 reigned H4427 (8799) in his stead.

Young’s Literal Translation

2 Chronicles 12 (YLT)

[1] And it cometh to pass, at the establishing of the kingdom of Rehoboam, and at his strengthening himself, he hath forsaken the law of Jehovah, and all Israel with him.
[2] And it cometh to pass, in the fifth year of king Rehoboam, come up hath Shishak king of Egypt against Jerusalem-because they trespassed against Jehovah-
[3] with a thousand and two hundred chariots, and with sixty thousand horsemen, and there is no number to the people who have come with him out of Egypt-Lubim, Sukkiim, and Cushim-
[4] and he captureth the cities of the bulwarks that are to Judah, and cometh in unto Jerusalem.
[5] And Shemaiah the prophet hath come in unto Rehoboam and the heads of Judah who have been gathered unto Jerusalem from the presence of Shishak, and saith to them, ‘Thus said Jehovah, Ye have forsaken Me, and also, I have left you in the hand of Shishak;’
[6] and the heads of Israel are humbled, and the king, and they say, ‘Righteous is Jehovah.’
[7] And when Jehovah seeth that they have been humbled, a word of Jehovah hath been unto Shemaiah, saying, ‘They have been humbled; I do not destroy them, and I have given to them as a little thing for an escape, and I pour not out My fury in Jerusalem by the hand of Shishak;
[8] but they become servants to him, and they know My service, and the service of the kingdoms of the lands.’
[9] And Shishak king of Egypt cometh up against Jerusalem, and taketh the treasures of the house of Jehovah, and the treasures of the house of the king-the whole he hath taken-and he taketh the shields of gold that Solomon had made;
[10] and king Rehoboam maketh in their stead shields of brass, and hath given them a charge on the hand of the heads of the runners who are keeping the opening of the house of the king;
[11] and it cometh to pass, from the time of the going in of the king to the house of Jehovah, the runners have come in and lifted them up, and brought them back unto the chamber of the runners.
[12] And in his being humbled, turned back from him hath the wrath of Jehovah, so as not to destroy to completion; and also, in Judah there have been good things.
[13] And king Rehoboam strengtheneth himself in Jerusalem, and reigneth; for a son of forty and two years is Rehoboam in his reigning, and seventeen years he hath reigned in Jerusalem, the city that Jehovah hath chosen to put His name there, out of all the tribes of Israel, and the name of his mother is Naamah the Ammonitess,
[14] and he doth the evil thing, for he hath not prepared his heart to seek Jehovah.
[15] And the matters of Rehoboam, the first and the last, are they not written among the matters of Shemaiah the prophet, and of Iddo the seer, concerning genealogy? And the wars of Rehoboam and Jeroboam are all the days;
[16] and Rehoboam lieth with his fathers, and is buried in the city of David, and reign doth Abijah his son in his stead.
