2 Chronicles 16 (WEBP)

[1] In the thirty-sixth year of Asa’s reign, Baasha king of Israel went up against Judah, and built Ramah, that he might not allow anyone to go out or come in to Asa king of Judah.
[2] Then Asa brought out silver and gold out of the treasures of Yahweh’s house and of the king’s house, and sent to Ben Hadad king of Syria, who lived at Damascus, saying,
[3] “Let there be a treaty between me and you, as there was between my father and your father. Behold, I have sent you silver and gold. Go, break your treaty with Baasha king of Israel, that he may depart from me.”
[4] Ben Hadad listened to King Asa, and sent the captains of his armies against the cities of Israel; and they struck Ijon, Dan, Abel Maim, and all the storage cities of Naphtali.
[5] When Baasha heard of it, he stopped building Ramah, and let his work cease.
[6] Then Asa the king took all Judah, and they carried away the stones and timber of Ramah, with which Baasha had built; and he built Geba and Mizpah with them.
[7] At that time Hanani the seer came to Asa king of Judah, and said to him, “Because you have relied on the king of Syria, and have not relied on Yahweh your God, therefore the army of the king of Syria has escaped out of your hand.
[8] Weren’t the Ethiopians and the Lubim a huge army, with chariots and exceedingly many horsemen? Yet, because you relied on Yahweh, he delivered them into your hand.
[9] For Yahweh’s eyes run back and forth throughout the whole earth, to show himself strong in the behalf of them whose heart is perfect toward him. You have done foolishly in this; for from now on you will have wars.”
[10] Then Asa was angry with the seer, and put him in the prison; for he was in a rage with him because of this thing. Asa oppressed some of the people at the same time.
[11] Behold, the acts of Asa, first and last, behold, they are written in the book of the kings of Judah and Israel.
[12] In the thirty-ninth year of his reign, Asa was diseased in his feet. His disease was exceedingly great; yet in his disease he didn’t seek Yahweh, but just the physicians.
[13] Asa slept with his fathers, and died in the forty-first year of his reign.
[14] They buried him in his own tomb, which he had dug out for himself in David’s city, and laid him in the bed which was filled with sweet odors and various kinds of spices prepared by the perfumers’ art; and they made a very great fire for him.

2 Chronicles 16 (KJVS)

[1] In the six H8337 and thirtieth H7970 year H8141 of the reign H4438 of Asa H609 Baasha H1201 king H4428 of Israel H3478 came up H5927 (8804) against Judah H3063, and built H1129 (8799) Ramah H7414, to the intent that H1115 he might let H5414 (8800) none go out H3318 (8802) or come in H935 (8802) to Asa H609 king H4428 of Judah H3063.
[2] Then Asa H609 brought out H3318 (8686) silver H3701 and gold H2091 out of the treasures H214 of the house H1004 of the LORD H3068 and of the king’s H4428 house H1004, and sent H7971 (8799) to Benhadad H1130 king H4428 of Syria H758, that dwelt H3427 (8802) at Damascus H1834, saying H559 (8800),
[3] [There is] a league H1285 between me and thee, as [there was] between my father H1 and thy father H1: behold, I have sent H7971 (8804) thee silver H3701 and gold H2091; go H3212 (8798), break H6565 (8685) thy league H1285 with Baasha H1201 king H4428 of Israel H3478, that he may depart H5927 (8799) from me.
[4] And Benhadad H1130 hearkened H8085 (8799) unto king H4428 Asa H609, and sent H7971 (8799) the captains H8269 of his armies H2428 against the cities H5892 of Israel H3478; and they smote H5221 (8686) Ijon H5859, and Dan H1835, and Abelmaim H66, and all the store H4543 cities H5892 of Naphtali H5321.
[5] And it came to pass, when Baasha H1201 heard H8085 (8800) [it], that he left off H2308 (8799) building H1129 (8800) of Ramah H7414, and let his work H4399 cease H7673 (8686).
[6] Then Asa H609 the king H4428 took H3947 (8804) all Judah H3063; and they carried away H5375 (8799) the stones H68 of Ramah H7414, and the timber H6086 thereof, wherewith Baasha H1201 was building H1129 (8804); and he built H1129 (8799) therewith Geba H1387 and Mizpah H4709.
[7] And at that time H6256 Hanani H2607 the seer H7200 (8802) came H935 (8804) to Asa H609 king H4428 of Judah H3063, and said H559 (8799) unto him, Because thou hast relied H8172 (8736) on the king H4428 of Syria H758, and not relied H8172 (8738) on the LORD H3068 thy God H430, therefore is the host H2428 of the king H4428 of Syria H758 escaped H4422 (8738) out of thine hand H3027.
[8] Were not the Ethiopians H3569 and the Lubims H3864 a huge H7230 host H2428, with very H3966 many H7235 (8687) chariots H7393 and horsemen H6571? yet, because thou didst rely H8172 (8736) on the LORD H3068, he delivered H5414 (8804) them into thine hand H3027.
[9] For the eyes H5869 of the LORD H3068 run to and fro H7751 (8789) throughout the whole earth H776, to shew himself strong H2388 (8692) in the behalf of [them] whose heart H3824 [is] perfect H8003 toward him. Herein thou hast done foolishly H5528 (8738): therefore from henceforth H6258 thou shalt have H3426 wars H4421.
[10] Then Asa H609 was wroth H3707 (8799) with the seer H7200 (8802), and put H5414 (8799) him in a prison H4115 house H1004; for [he was] in a rage H2197 with him because of this [thing]. And Asa H609 oppressed H7533 (8762) [some] of the people H5971 the same time H6256.
[11] And, behold, the acts H1697 of Asa H609, first H7223 and last H314, lo, they [are] written H3789 (8803) in the book H5612 of the kings H4428 of Judah H3063 and Israel H3478.
[12] And Asa H609 in the thirty H7970 and ninth H8672 year H8141 of his reign H4438 was diseased H2456 (8799) in his feet H7272, until his disease H2483 [was] exceeding H4605 [great]: yet in his disease H2483 he sought H1875 (8804) not to the LORD H3068, but to the physicians H7495 (8802).
[13] And Asa H609 slept H7901 (8799) with his fathers H1, and died H4191 (8799) in the one H259 and fortieth H705 year H8141 of his reign H4427 (8800).
[14] And they buried H6912 (8799) him in his own sepulchres H6913, which he had made H3738 (8804) for himself in the city H5892 of David H1732, and laid H7901 (8686) him in the bed H4904 which was filled H4390 (8765) with sweet odours H1314 and divers kinds H2177 [of spices] prepared H7543 (8794) by the apothecaries H4842’ art H4639: and they made H8313 (8799) a very H3966 great H1419 burning H8316 for him.

Young’s Literal Translation

2 Chronicles 16 (YLT)

[1] In the thirty and sixth year of the reign of Asa, come up hath Baasha king of Israel, against Judah, and buildeth Ramah, so as not to permit any going out and coming in to Asa king of Judah.
[2] And Asa bringeth out silver and gold from the treasures of the house of Jehovah, and of the house of the king, and sendeth unto Ben-Hadad king of Aram, who is dwelling in Damascus, saying,
[3] ‘A covenant is between me and thee, and between my father and thy father, lo, I have sent to thee silver and gold; go, break thy covenant with Baasha king of Israel, and he doth go up from off me.’
[4] And Ben-Hadad hearkeneth unto king Asa, and sendeth the heads of the forces that he hath unto cities of Israel, and they smite Ijon, and Dan, and Abel-Maim, and all the stores, cities of Naphtali.
[5] And it cometh to pass, at Baasha’s hearing, that he ceaseth from building Ramah, and letteth his work rest;
[6] and Asa the king hath taken all Judah, and they bear away the stones of Ramah, and its wood, that Baasha hath built, and he buildeth with them Geba and Mizpah.
[7] And at that time hath Hanani the seer come in unto Asa king of Judah, and saith unto him, ‘Because of thy leaning on the king of Aram, and thou hast not leaned on Jehovah thy God, therefore hath the force of the king of Aram escaped from thy hand.
[8] Did not the Cushim and the Lubim become a very great force for multitude, for chariot, and for horsemen? and in thy leaning on Jehovah He gave them into thy hand,
[9] for Jehovah-His eyes go to and fro in all the earth, to show Himself strong for a people whose heart is perfect towards Him; thou hast been foolish concerning this, because-henceforth there are with thee wars.’
[10] And Asa is angry at the seer, and giveth him to the house of torture, for he is in a rage with him for this; and Asa oppresseth some of the people at that time.
[11] And lo, the matters of Asa, the first and the last, lo, they are written on the book of the kings of Judah and Israel.
[12] And Asa is diseased-in the thirty and ninth year of his reign-in his feet, till his disease is excessive, and also in his disease he hath not sought Jehovah, but among physicians.
[13] And Asa lieth with his fathers, and dieth in the forty and first year of his reign,
[14] and they bury him in one of his graves, that he had prepared for himself in the city of David, and they cause him to lie on a bed that one hath filled with spices, and divers kinds of mixtures, with perfumed work; and they burn for him a burning-very great.
