1 Mpanjaka 1

1:1 Now king David had become elderly, and he had many days in his lifetime. And though he was covered with clothes, he was not warmed.
1:2 Noho izany, his servants said to him: “Let us seek, for our lord the king, a young virgin. And let her stand before the king, and warm him, and sleep in his bosom, and provide warmth for our lord the king.”
1:3 And so they sought a beautiful young woman in all the parts of Israel. And they found Abishag, a Shunammite, and they led her to the king.
1:4 Now the girl was exceedingly beautiful. And she slept with the king, and she ministered to him. Na izany aza tena, the king did not know her.
1:5 Then Adonijah, ny zanak'i Hagita, exalted himself, nanao hoe:, “I shall reign!” And he appointed for himself chariots and horsemen, with fifty men who would run before him.
1:6 Neither did his father chastise him at any time, nanao hoe:, "Nahoana ianao no nanao izany zavatra izany?” Now he, koa, was very beautiful, the second in birth, after Absalom.
1:7 And he conferred with Joab, , zanak'i Zeroia,, and with Abiathar, ny mpisorona, who gave assistance to the side of Adonijah.
1:8 Na izany aza tena, Zadoka, ny mpisorona, ary Benaia, ny zanak'i Joiada, sy Natana, ny mpaminany, and Shimei and Rei, and the mature men of the army of David were not with Adonijah.
1:9 Then Adonijah, having immolated rams and calves and every kind of fat cattle beside the Stone of the Serpent, which was in the vicinity of the fountain Rogel, summoned all his brothers, the sons of the king, and all the men of Judah, the servants of the king.
1:10 But he did not summon Nathan, ny mpaminany, ary Benaia, and all the mature men, ary Solomona, rahalahiny.
1:11 And so Nathan said to Bathsheba, the mother of Solomon: “Have you not heard that Adonijah, ny zanak'i Hagita, has begun to reign, and that our lord David is ignorant of this?
1:12 Koa ankehitriny, ho avy, accept my counsel, and save your life and the life of your son Solomon.
1:13 Go and enter to king David, ka lazao aminy: ‘Did you not, ny mpanjaka tompoko, swear to me, your handmaid, nanao hoe:: “Your son Solomon shall reign after me, and he himself shall sit on my throne?” Then why does Adonijah reign?'
1:14 And while you are still speaking with the king there, I will enter after you, and I will complete your words.”
1:15 And so Bathsheba entered to the king in the bedroom. Now the king was very old, and Abishag, the Shunammite, was ministering to him.
1:16 Bathsheba bowed herself, and she reverenced the king. Ary hoy ny mpanjaka taminy, “What do you wish?"
1:17 Sy ny fandraisana andraikitra, hoy izy: "Tompoko, you swore to your handmaid, by the Lord your God: ‘your son Solomon will reign after me, and he himself shall sit upon my throne.’
1:18 And now behold, Adonijah reigns, while you, ny mpanjaka tompoko, are ignorant of it.
1:19 He has slain oxen, and every kind of fattened cattle, and many rams. And he has summoned all the sons of the king, as well as Abiathar, ny mpisorona, and Joab, ny mpitarika ny miaramila. But Solomon, mpanomponao, he did not summon.
1:20 Truly now, ny mpanjaka tompoko, the eyes of all of Israel look with favor upon you, that you may indicate to them who ought to sit upon your throne, ny mpanjaka tompoko, after you.
1:21 Raha tsy izany, this will be: when my lord the king sleeps with his fathers, I and my son Solomon will be as sinners.”
1:22 And while she was still speaking with the king, Nathan, ny mpaminany, tonga.
1:23 And they announced to the king, nanao hoe:, “Nathan, ny mpaminany, is here.” And when he had entered in the sight of the king, and he had reverenced prone on the ground,
1:24 Nathan said: "Ry mpanjaka tompoko ô, did you say, ‘Let Adonijah reign after me, and let him sit upon my throne?'
1:25 Fa amin'izao andro izao, he descended, and he immolated oxen, and fattened cattle, and many rams. And he summoned all the sons of the king, and the leaders of the army, along with Abiathar, ny mpisorona. And they are eating and drinking before him, ary nanao hoe:, ‘As king Adonijah lives.’
1:26 But he did not summon me, mpanomponao, ary Zadoka, ny mpisorona, ary Benaia, ny zanak'i Joiada, ary Solomona, your lowly servant.
1:27 Could this word have gone out from my lord the king, and could you not have revealed it to me, mpanomponao, as to who would be seated upon the throne of my lord the king after him?"
1:28 And king David responded, nanao hoe:, “Summon to me Bathsheba.” And when she had entered before the king, and she had stood before him,
1:29 the king swore and said: "Raha velona koa Jehovah, who has rescued my soul from all distress,
1:30 just as I swore to you by the Lord God of Israel, nanao hoe:: ‘Your son Solomon shall reign after me, and he himself shall sit upon my throne in my place,’ so shall I do this day.”
1:31 And Bathsheba, having lowered her face to the ground, reverenced the king, nanao hoe:, “May my lord David live forever.”
1:32 And king David said, “Summon to me Zadok, ny mpisorona, sy Natana, ny mpaminany, ary Benaia, the son of Jehoiada.” And when they had entered before the king,
1:33 dia hoy izy taminy: “Take with you the servants of your lord, and place my son Solomon upon my mule. And lead him to Gihon.
1:34 And let Zadok, ny mpisorona, sy Natana, ny mpaminany, anoint him in that place as the king over Israel. And you shall sound the trumpet, ary ianao dia hanao hoe:, ‘As king Solomon lives.’
1:35 And you shall ascend after him, and he shall arrive and shall sit upon my throne. And he himself shall reign in my place. And I will command that he be the ruler over Israel and over Judah.”
1:36 ary Benaia, ny zanak'i Joiada, responded to the king, nanao hoe:: "Amen. So says the Lord, the God of my lord the king.
1:37 In the same way that the Lord has been with my lord the king, so may he be with Solomon. And may he make his throne more sublime than the throne of my lord, king David.”
1:38 Then Zadok, ny mpisorona, sy Natana, ny mpaminany, descended, with Benaiah, ny zanak'i Joiada, and the Cherethites and Pelethites. And they placed Solomon on the mule of king David, and they led him to Gihon.
1:39 ary Zadoka, ny mpisorona, took the horn of oil from the tabernacle, and he anointed Solomon. And they sounded the trumpet. And all the people said, “As king Solomon lives.”
1:40 And the entire multitude ascended after him. And the people were playing on pipes, and rejoicing with great joy. And the earth resounded before the noise of them.
1:41 Then Adonijah, and all who had been summoned by him, heard it. And now the feast had ended. Avy eo, koa, Joaba, hearing the voice of the trumpet, nanao hoe:, “What is the meaning of this clamor from the tumultuous city?"
1:42 Ary raha mbola niteny, Jonathan, the son of Abiathar the priest, tonga. And Adonijah said to him, "Midira, for you are a valiant man, and you report good news.”
1:43 And Jonathan answered Adonijah: "Tsy izany mihitsy. For our lord king David has appointed Solomon as king.
1:44 And he has sent with him Zadok, ny mpisorona, sy Natana, ny mpaminany, ary Benaia, ny zanak'i Joiada, and the Cherethites and Pelethites. And they have placed him on the mule of the king.
1:45 ary Zadoka, ny mpisorona, sy Natana, ny mpaminany, have anointed him king, at Gihon. And they are ascending from there, faly, and so the city resounds. This is the noise that you have heard.
1:46 Fa koa, Solomon sits upon the throne of the kingdom.
1:47 Ary hoy ny mpanompon'ny mpanjaka, miditra, have blessed our lord king David, nanao hoe:: ‘May God amplify the name of Solomon above your name, and may he magnify his throne above your throne.’ And the king reverenced from his bed.
1:48 Ary hoy izy:: ‘Blessed is the Lord, ny Andriamanitry ny Isiraely,, who today has bestowed someone to sit upon my throne, while my eyes may see it.’ ”
1:49 Noho izany, all those who had been summoned by Adonijah were terrified. And they all rose up, and each one went his own way.
1:50 Then Adonijah, fearing Solomon, rose up and went away. And he took hold of the horn of the altar.
1:51 And they reported to Solomon, nanao hoe:: "Indro, Adonijah, fearing king Solomon, has taken hold of the horn of the altar, nanao hoe:: ‘May king Solomon swear to me this day that he will not put to death his servant with the sword.’ ”
1:52 And Solomon said: “If he is a good man, not so much as one hair of his head shall fall to the ground. But if evil is found in him, he shall die.”
1:53 Noho izany, king Solomon sent and brought him from the altar. ary raha niditra, he reverenced king Solomon. And Solomon said to him, “Go to your own house.”

1 Mpanjaka 2

2:1 Now the days of David had drawn near, so that he would die, and he instructed his son Solomon, nanao hoe::
2:2 “I am entering the way of all the earth. Be strengthened and be a good man.
2:3 And observe the care of the Lord your God, so that you walk in his ways, so that you care for his ceremonies, and his precepts, and judgments, and testimonies, just as it is written in the law of Moses. So may you understand everything that you do, in any direction that you may turn yourself.
2:4 So may the Lord confirm his words, which he has spoken about me, nanao hoe:: ‘If your sons will guard their ways, and if they will walk before me in truth, amin'ny fony rehetra sy ny fanahiny rehetra, there shall not be taken away from you a man on the throne of Israel.’
2:5 koa, you know what Joab, , zanak'i Zeroia,, has done to me, what he did to the two leaders of the army of Israel, to Abner, ny zanak'i Nera, and to Amasa, the son of Jether. He killed them, and so he shed the blood of war in peace time, and he set the bloodshed of battle on his belt, which was around his waist, and in his shoes, which were on his feet.
2:6 Noho izany, act according to your wisdom. And you shall not allow his gray head to be led away to death in peace.
2:7 Avy eo, koa, repay grace to the sons of Barzillai the Gileadite. And you shall allow them to eat at your table. For they met me when I fled from the face of Absalom, rahalahinao.
2:8 koa, you have with you Shimei, ny zanak'i Gera, ny zanak'i Benjamina, avy any Bahorima, who cursed me with a grievous curse, when I went away to the camp. And he descended to meet me when I crossed over the Jordan, and I swore to him by the Lord, nanao hoe:, ‘I will not put you to death by the sword,'
2:9 yet do not choose to treat him as if he were innocent. Since you are a wise man, you will know what to do with him. And you shall lead away his grey hair to death with blood.”
2:10 Ary noho izany, David slept with his fathers, and he was buried in the city of David.
2:11 Now the days during which David reigned over Israel are forty years: he reigned seven years in Hebron, thirty-three in Jerusalem.
2:12 Then Solomon sat upon the throne of his father David, and his kingdom was strengthened exceedingly.
2:13 And Adonijah, ny zanak'i Hagita, entered to Bathsheba, the mother of Solomon. Ary hoy izy taminy, “Is your entrance peaceful?"Hoy ny navaliny, “It is peaceful.”
2:14 And he added, “My word is for you.” She said to him, “Speak.” And he said:
2:15 “You know that the kingdom was mine, and that all of Israel had preferred me for themselves as king. But the kingdom was transferred, and has become my brother’s. For it was appointed to him by the Lord.
2:16 Koa ankehitriny, I beg of you one petition. May you not confound my face.” And she said to him, "Lazao."
2:17 Ary hoy izy:: “I beg that you may speak to king Solomon, for he is not able to refuse anything to you, so that he may give Abishag the Shunammite to me as wife.”
2:18 And Bathsheba said: “It is well. I will speak to the king on your behalf.”
2:19 Then Bathsheba went to king Solomon, so that she might speak to him on behalf of Adonijah. And the king rose up to meet her, and he reverenced her, and he sat down upon his throne. And a throne was stationed for the mother of the king, and she sat at his right hand.
2:20 Ary hoy izy taminy: “I petition one small request from you. May you not confound my face.” And the king said to her: “Ask, ny reniko. For it is not right that I turn away your face.”
2:21 Ary hoy izy:, “Let Abishag the Shunammite be given to Adonijah, rahalahinao, as wife.”
2:22 And king Solomon responded, and he said to his mother: “Why do you request Abishag the Shunammite for Adonijah? Why not request the kingdom for him! For he is my older brother, and he has Abiathar, ny mpisorona, and Joab, the son of Zeruiah.”
2:23 And so king Solomon swore by the Lord, nanao hoe:: "Enga anie Andriamanitra manao ireo zavatra ireo tamiko, ary enga anie izy manampy ireo zavatra hafa! For Adonijah has spoken this word against his own life.
2:24 Ary ankehitriny, as the Lord lives, who has confirmed me and placed me upon the throne of my father David, ary izay, araka izay nanao hoe:, has made a house for me: Adonijah shall be put to death this day.”
2:25 And king Solomon sent by the hand of Benaiah, ny zanak'i Joiada, who put him to death, and so he died.
2:26 koa, the king said to Abiathar, ny mpisorona: “Go into Anathoth, to your own land, for you are a man worthy of death. But I will not put you to death this day, since you carried the ark of the Lord God before David, ny raiko, and since you have endured hardship in all the things, for which my father labored.”
2:27 Noho izany, Solomon cast out Abiathar, so that he would not be the priest of the Lord, so that the word of the Lord might be fulfilled, which he spoke over the house of Eli at Shiloh.
2:28 And the news came to Joab, for Joab had turned aside after Adonijah, and he had not turned aside after Solomon. Ary noho izany, Joab fled into the tabernacle of the Lord, and he took hold of the horn of the altar.
2:29 And it was reported to king Solomon that Joab had fled into the tabernacle of the Lord, and that he was beside the altar. And Solomon sent Benaiah, ny zanak'i Joiada, nanao hoe:, "Mandehana, put him to death.”
2:30 And Benaiah went to the tabernacle of the Lord, ka hoy izy taminy:: “The king says this: ‘Come out.’ ” But he said: “I will not come out. Fa tsy, I will die here.” Benaiah sent word back to the king, nanao hoe:, “Joab said this, and he responded to me in this way.”
2:31 Ary hoy ny mpanjaka taminy, “Do just as he has said. And put him to death, and bury him. And so shall you take away the innocent blood, which was shed by Joab, from me and from my father’s house.
2:32 And the Lord shall repay his blood upon his own head. For he killed two men, just and better than himself, and he killed them with the sword, while my father, David, did not know it: Abner, ny zanak'i Nera, leader of the military of Israel, and Amasa, the son of Jether, leader of the army of Judah.
2:33 And their blood shall be turned back upon the head of Joab, and upon the head of his offspring forever. But as for David, and his offspring and house, and his throne, may there be peace from the Lord, na dia hatrany amin mandrakizay. "
2:34 And so Benaiah, ny zanak'i Joiada, went up and, attacking him, put him to death. And he was buried in his own house in the desert.
2:35 And the king appointed Benaiah, ny zanak'i Joiada, in his place over the army. And he appointed Zadok, ny mpisorona, in place of Abiathar.
2:36 koa, the king sent for and summoned Shimei, ka hoy izy taminy:: “Build a house for yourself in Jerusalem, ka mitoetra ao. And do not depart from that place to here or to there.
2:37 For on whatever day you will have departed and crossed the torrent Kidron, know that you shall be put to death. Your blood will be upon your own head.”
2:38 And Shimei said to the king: “The word is good. Just as my lord the king has said, so will your servant do.” And so Shimei lived in Jerusalem for many days.
2:39 Fa izany no nitranga fa, rehefa afaka telo taona, the servants of Shimei fled to Achish, zanak'i Maka, the king of Gath. And it was reported to Shimei that his servants had gone away to Gath.
2:40 And Shimei rose up, and he saddled his donkey. And went away to Achish in Gath, in order to seek his servants. And he led them away from Gath.
2:41 And it was reported to Solomon that Shimei had gone away from Jerusalem to Gath, and had returned.
2:42 ka naniraka, he summoned him, ka hoy izy taminy:: “Did I not testify to you by the Lord, and warn you in advance, ‘On whatever day, having departed, you go forth to here or to there, know that you shall die?’ And you responded to me, ‘The word that I have heard is good.’
2:43 Then why have you not kept the oath to the Lord, and the commandment which I instructed to you?"
2:44 Ary hoy ny mpanjaka tamin'i Simey: “You know all the evil, of which your heart is conscious, which you did to David, ny raiko. The Lord has repaid your wickedness upon your own head.”
2:45 And king Solomon shall be blessed, and the throne of David shall be established before the Lord, eny, mandrakizay.
2:46 And so the king commanded Benaiah, ny zanak'i Joiada. Ary nivoaka, he struck him down, dia maty izy.

1 Mpanjaka 3

3:1 And so the kingdom was confirmed in the hand of Solomon, and he was joined with Pharaoh, ny mpanjakan'i Egypta, by affinity. For he took his daughter, and he led her into the city of David, until he completed building his own house, and the house of the Lord, and the wall of Jerusalem all around.
3:2 But still the people immolated in the high places. For no temple had been built to the name of the Lord, even to that day.
3:3 Now Solomon loved the Lord, walking in the precepts of David, ny rainy, except that he immolated in the high places, and he burned incense.
3:4 Ary noho izany, he went away to Gibeon, so that he might immolate there; for that was the greatest high place. Solomon offered upon that altar, at Gibeon, one thousand victims as holocausts.
3:5 Then the Lord appeared to Solomon, through a dream in the night, nanao hoe:, “Request whatever you wish, so that I may give it to you.”
3:6 And Solomon said: “You have shown great mercy to your servant David, ny raiko, because he walked in your sight in truth and justice, and with an upright heart before you. And you have kept your great mercy for him, and you have given him a son sitting upon his throne, just as it is this day.
3:7 Ary ankehitriny, Andriamanitra Tompo ô, you have caused your servant to reign in place of David, ny raiko. But I am a small child, and I am ignorant of my entrance and departure.
3:8 And your servant is in the midst of the people that you have chosen, an immense people, who are not able to be numbered or counted because of their multitude.
3:9 Noho izany, give to your servant a teachable heart, so that he may be able to judge your people, and to discern between good and evil. For who will be able to judge this people, ny olonao, who are so many?"
3:10 And the word was pleasing before the Lord, that Solomon had requested this kind of thing.
3:11 And the Lord said to Solomon: “Since you have requested this word, and you have not asked for many days or for wealth for yourself, nor for the lives of your enemies, but instead you have requested for yourself wisdom in order to discern judgment:
3:12 indro, I have done for you according to your words, and I have given you a wise and understanding heart, so much so that there has been no one like you before you, nor anyone who will rise up after you.
3:13 But also the things for which you did not ask, I have given to you, namely wealth and glory, so that no one has been like you among the kings in the all days before.
3:14 And if you will walk in my ways, and keep my precepts and my commandments, just as your father walked, I will lengthen your days.”
3:15 Then Solomon awakened, and he understood that it was a dream. Ary rehefa tonga tany Jerosalema, he stood before the ark of the covenant of the Lord, and he offered holocausts and made victims of peace offerings, and he held a great feast for all his servants.
3:16 Then two women harlots went to the king, and they stood before him.
3:17 And one of them said: "Miangavy anao aho, tompoko, I and this woman were living in one house, and I gave birth, with her in the room.
3:18 Avy eo, on the third day after I gave birth, she also gave birth. And we were together, with no other person with us in the house, only the two of us.
3:19 Then this woman’s son died in the night. For while sleeping, she smothered him.
3:20 And rising up in the silent depths of the night, she took my son from my side, while I, your handmaid, was sleeping, and she set him in her bosom. Then she placed her dead son in my bosom.
3:21 And when I had arisen in the morning, so that I might give milk to my son, he appeared to be dead. But gazing upon him more diligently in the light of day, I realized that he was not mine, whom I had born.”
3:22 And the other woman responded: “It is not such as you say. Fa tsy, your son is dead, but mine is alive.” To the contrary, hoy izy: “You are lying. For my son lives, and your son is dead.” And in this manner, they were contending before the king.
3:23 Then said the king: “This one says, ‘My son is alive, and your son is dead.’ And the other responds, 'Tsia, instead your son is dead, but mine lives.’ ”
3:24 Therefore the king said, “Bring a sword to me.” And when they had brought a sword before the king,
3:25 hoy izy:, “Divide the living infant in two parts, and give a half part to the one and a half part to the other.”
3:26 Fa ny vehivavy, whose son was alive, hoy izy tamin'ny mpanjaka, for her heart was moved concerning her son, "Miangavy anao aho, tompoko, give the living infant to her, and do not kill him.” To the contrary, the other said, “Let it be neither for me, nor for you, instead divide it.”
3:27 The king responded and said: “Give the living infant to this woman, and do not kill it. For she is his mother.”
3:28 Then all of Israel heard about the judgment that the king had judged, and they feared the king, seeing that the wisdom of God was in him to accomplish judgment.

4:1 Now king Solomon was reigning over all of Israel.
4:2 And these were the leaders that he had: Azaria, , zanak'i Zadoka,, ny mpisorona;

4:8 And these are their names: Benhur, on mount Ephraim;
4:9 Bendeker, in Makaz, and in Shaalbim, and in Beth-shemesh, and in Elon, and in Beth-hanan;
4:10 Benhesed, in Arubboth: his was Socoh and the entire land of Hepher;
4:11 Benabinadab, to whom was all of Naphath-Dor, who had Taphath, the daughter of Solomon, as wife;
4:12 Baana, ny zanak'i Ahiloda, who was reigning in Taanach, and Megiddo, and all of Bethshean, which is beside Zarethan and below Jezreel, from Bethshean as far as Abelmeholah, opposite Jokmeam;

4:19 Geber, ny zanak'i Ory, any amin'ny tany Gileada, in the land of Sihon, king of the Amorites, and of Og, king of Bashan, over all who were in that land.
4:20 Judah and Israel were innumerable, like the sand of the sea in multitude: mihinana sy misotro, ary faly.
4:21 Now Solomon had, in his dominion, all the kingdoms, from the river to the land of the Philistines, even to the border of Egypt. And they offered gifts to him, and they served him all the days of his life.
4:22 And the provisions of Solomon, for each day, were thirty cor of fine wheat flour, and sixty cor of meal,
4:23 ten fattened oxen, and twenty oxen from the pastures, and one hundred rams, aside from the venison of stags, roe deer, and gazelles, and fattened poultry.
4:24 For he had obtained the entire region which was beyond the river, from Tiphsah as far as Gaza, and all the kings of those regions. And he had peace on every side all around.
4:25 Ary noho izany, Judah and Israel were living without any fear, each one under his own vine and under his own fig tree, from Dan as far as Beersheba, during all the days of Solomon.
4:26 And Solomon had forty thousand stalls of chariot horses, and twelve thousand riding horses.
4:27 And the above-stated commanders of the king nourished these. And they also offered the necessities for the table of king Solomon, with immense diligence, each in his time.
4:28 koa, they brought barley and straw for the horses and beasts of burden, to the place where the king was, just as it was appointed to them.
4:29 And God gave wisdom to Solomon, and an exceedingly great prudence, and a spacious heart, like the sand which is on the shore of the sea.
4:30 And the wisdom of Solomon surpassed the wisdom of all the East, and of the Egyptians.
4:31 And he was wiser than all men: wiser than Ethan, the Ezrahite, sy Hemana, and Calcol, and Darda, the sons of Mahol. And he was renowned in all the nations on every side.
4:32 Solomon also spoke three thousand parables. And his verses were one thousand and five.
4:33 And he discoursed about trees, from the cedar which is in Lebanon, to the hyssop which grows out from the wall. And he explained about beasts, and birds, and reptiles, and fish.
4:34 And they came from all the peoples in order to hear the wisdom of Solomon, and from all the kings of the earth, who were hearing about his wisdom.

5:1 Hiram, ny mpanjakan'i Tyro, also sent his servants to Solomon. For he heard that they had anointed him king in place of his father. Now Hiram had been a friend to David the entire time.
5:2 Then Solomon sent to Hiram, nanao hoe::
5:3 “You know the will of my father David, and that he was not able to build a house to the name of the Lord his God, because of the wars that were imminent all around him, until the Lord set them under the steps of his feet.
5:4 But now the Lord my God has given rest to me on all sides. And there is no adversary, nor occurrence of evil.
5:5 Izany no antony, I intend to build a temple to the name of the Lord my God, just as the Lord spoke to my father David, nanao hoe:: ‘Your son, whom I will set in your place, upon your throne, he himself shall build a house to my name.’
5:6 Noho izany, order that your servants may cut down for me cedars from Lebanon. And let my servants be with your servants. Then I will give to you, for the wages of your servants, whatever you will ask. For you know that there is not a man among my people who knows how to cut wood as well as the Sidonians.”
5:7 Noho izany, when Hiram had heard the words of Solomon, he rejoiced greatly, ka hoy Izy:, “Blessed be the Lord God this day, who gave to David a very wise son over this numerous people!"
5:8 And Hiram sent to Solomon, nanao hoe:: “I have heard the things that you would entrust to me. And I will do your whole will concerning the cedar trees and spruce trees.
5:9 My servants shall bring them down from Lebanon to the sea. And I will arrange them together as rafts on the sea, as far as the place that you will indicate to me. And I will land them there, and you will take them. And you shall offer to me what is necessary to give food to my house.”
5:10 Ary noho izany, Hiram gave to Solomon cedar trees and spruce trees, in accord with his whole will.
5:11 Then Solomon offered to Hiram twenty thousand cor of wheat, as food for his house, and twenty cor of the purest oil. These things Solomon gave as a tribute to Hiram every year.
5:12 And the Lord gave wisdom to Solomon, just as he said to him. And there was peace between Hiram and Solomon, and the two struck a pact.
5:13 And king Solomon chose workers from all of Israel, and the conscription was of thirty thousand men.
5:14 And he sent them into Lebanon, ten thousand each month, in mifandimby, so that for two months they were in their own houses. And Adoniram was over this type of conscription.
5:15 And Solomon had seventy thousand of those who were carrying burdens, and eighty thousand of those who cut stones from the mountain,
5:16 aside from the commanders who were over each work, in number three thousand and three hundred, who gave orders to the people and to those who were doing the work.
5:17 And the king ordered them to bring great stones, vato sarobidy, for the foundation of the temple, and to square them.
5:18 And these were shaped by the stoneworkers of Solomon and the stoneworkers of Hiram. And the men of Gebal also prepared the wood and the stones in order to build the house.

6:1 Avy eo dia nitranga fa, in the four hundred and eightieth year after the sons of Israel departed from the land of Egypt, in the fourth year of the reign of Solomon over Israel, in the month of Ziv, which is the second month, the house of the Lord began to be built.
6:2 Now the house, which king Solomon was building to the Lord, was sixty cubits in length, and twenty cubits in width, and thirty cubits in height.
6:3 And a portico was before the temple, of twenty cubits in length, in accord with the measure of the width of the temple. And it had ten cubits of width before the face of the temple.
6:4 And he made oblique windows in the temple.
6:5 And upon the wall of the temple, he built panels on all sides, in the walls of the house around the temple and the oracle. And he made side chambers all around.
6:6 The flooring on the bottom level held five cubits in width, and the middle floor was six cubits in width, and the third floor held seven cubits in width. Then he positioned beams on the house all around the outside, in such a way that they would not be fastened to the walls of the temple.
6:7 Now the house, while it was being built, was made from cut and finished stones. Ary noho izany, neither mallet, nor chisel, nor any tool of iron was heard in the house while it was being built.
6:8 The door at the side of the middle section was to the right of the house. And they would ascend along winding stairs to the middle level, and from the middle level to the third level.
6:9 And he built the house, and finished it. And he overlaid the house with boards of cedar.
6:10 And he built a paneling over the entire house, five cubits in height, and he covered the house with cedar wood.
6:11 And the word of the Lord came to Solomon, nanao hoe::
6:12 “Concerning this house, which you are building: if you will walk in my precepts, and carry out my judgments, and keep all my commandments, advancing by them, I will confirm my word to you, which I spoke to your father David.
6:13 And I will dwell in the midst of the sons of Israel, and I will not forsake my people Israel.”
6:14 Ary noho izany, Solomon built the house, and finished it.
6:15 And he built the walls of the house, on the interior, with panels of cedar, from the floor of the house, to the top of the walls, and even to the ceiling. He covered it with cedar wood on the interior. And he overlaid the floor of the house with panels of spruce.
6:16 And he built panels of cedar, of twenty cubits, at the back part of the temple, from the floor even to the top. And he made the inner house of the oracle as the Holy of Holies.
6:17 And the temple itself, before the doors of the oracle, was forty cubits.
6:18 And the entire house was clothed with cedar on the interior, having its turnings and junctures artfully wrought, with carvings projecting outward. Everything was clothed with panels of cedar. And no stone at all was able to be seen in the wall.
6:19 Now he made the oracle in the middle of the house, in the inner part, so that he might station the ark of the covenant of the Lord there.
6:20 And the oracle held twenty cubits in length, and twenty cubits in width, and twenty cubits in height. And he covered and clothed it with the purest gold. Avy eo, koa, he clothed the altar in cedar.
6:21 koa, the house before the oracle, he covered with the purest gold, and he fastened the plates with nails of gold.
6:22 And there was nothing in the temple that was not covered with gold. Koa, the entire altar of the oracle he overlaid with gold.
6:23 And he made in the oracle two cherubim from wood of the olive tree, of ten cubits in height.
6:24 One wing of a cherub was five cubits, and the other wing of a cherub was five cubits, izany hoe, having ten cubits from the summit of one wing even to the summit of the other wing.
6:25 Toy izany koa, the second cherub was ten cubits. And the measure was equal and the work was one, in the two cherubim,
6:26 izany hoe, one cherub had a height of ten cubits, and similarly the second cherub.
6:27 And he stationed the cherubim in the middle of the inner temple. And the cherubim extended their wings, and the wing of the one was touching the wall, and the wing of the second cherub was touching the other wall. But the other wings, in the middle of the temple, were touching each another.
6:28 He also overlaid the cherubim with gold.
6:29 And all the walls of the temple all around he engraved with diverse carvings and turnings. And he made in them cherubim, and palm trees, and various images, as if these were projecting out, and going forth from, the wall.
6:30 Avy eo, koa, the floor of the house he overlaid with gold within and without.
6:31 And at the entrance of the oracle, he made little doors, from wood of the olive tree, with posts of five corners.
6:32 And there were two doors, from wood of the olive tree. And he carved upon them pictures of cherubim, and images of palm trees, and very prominent figures. And he overlaid these with gold. And he covered the cherubim, as well as the palm trees and the other things, -bolamena.
6:33 Ary nanao, at the entrance of the temple, posts from wood of the olive tree, with four corners,
6:34 and two doors, from wood of the spruce tree, on the other side. And each door was double, and so it opened by folding upon itself.
6:35 And he carved cherubim, and palm trees, and very prominent engravings. And he covered everything with gold plates, worked to be perfectly square.
6:36 And he built the inner atrium with three rows of polished stones, and one row of cedar wood.
6:37 In the fourth year, the house of the Lord was founded, in the month of Ziv.
6:38 And in the eleventh year, in the month Bul, which is the eighth month, the house was perfected in all its works and in all its equipment. And he built it for seven years.

1 Mpanjaka 7

7:1 Now Solomon built his own house for thirteen years, and he brought it to perfection.
7:2 And he built the house from the forest of Lebanon: one hundred cubits in length, and fifty cubits in width, and thirty cubits in height, with four walkways between columns of cedar. For he had hewn the cedar trees into columns.
7:3 And he clothed the entire vaulted room with panels of cedar. And it was supported by forty-five columns. Now one row held fifteen columns,
7:4 each positioned opposite another,
7:5 and looking toward one another, with equal spacing between the columns. And above the columns there were square beams equal in all things.
7:6 And he made a portico of columns, fifty cubits in length and thirty cubits in width, and another portico, facing the greater portico, with columns and with crossbeams upon the columns.
7:7 He also made the portico of the throne, in which is the tribunal. And he overlaid it with cedar wood, from the floor even to the summit.
7:8 And in the midst of the portico, there was a small house, where he would sit in judgment, similar in workmanship. He also made a house for the daughter of Pharaoh (whom Solomon had taken as wife) of the same work and type as this portico.
7:9 All was of precious stones, which had been sawed by a particular standard and measure, as much within as without, from the foundation even to the summit of the walls, and outside even to the great atrium.
7:10 Now the foundations were of precious stones: great stones of eight or ten cubits.
7:11 And above these, there were precious stones, of equal measure, which had been cut in a manner similar to boards of cedar.
7:12 And the great atrium was round, with three rows of cut stones and one row of cut cedar, even as it also was in the interior atrium of the house of the Lord, and in the portico of the house.
7:13 And king Solomon sent and brought Hiram of Tyre,
7:14 the son of a widowed woman, avy tamin'ny firenen'i Naftaly, whose father was a Tyrian, an artisan in brass, and full of wisdom, sy fahiratan-tsaina, and knowledge in order to form every work of brass. And when he had gone to king Solomon, he wrought all his work.
7:15 And he cast two columns of brass. Each column was eighteen cubits in height, and a line of twelve cubits encompassed both columns.
7:16 koa, he made two heads of molten brass, which would be set upon the tops of the columns: one head was five cubits in height, and the other head was five cubits in height.
7:17 And there was something like a network of chains, woven together in a wonderful manner. Both heads of the columns were cast, and seven rows of little nets traversed one head, and seven little nets were on the other head.
7:18 And he finished the columns with two rows all around each network, so that these covered the heads, which were at the top, with pomegranates. And he did in like manner to the second head.
7:19 Now the heads that were at the top of the columns, in the portico of four cubits, had been fabricated with a work of lilies.
7:20 Ary indray, there were other heads at the tops of the columns above, in accord with the measure of the column opposite the netting. And there were two hundred of the pomegranates, in rows around the second head.
7:21 And he stationed the two columns in the portico of the temple. And when he had stationed the column on the right, he called its name Jachin. Toy izany koa, he erected the second column, and he called its name Boaz.
7:22 And above the tops of the columns, he set a work in the manner of lilies. And the work of the columns was perfected.
7:23 He also made a molten sea, of ten cubits from brim to brim, rounded on all sides. Its height was five cubits, and a thin rope of thirty cubits wrapped it all around.
7:24 And a sculpted work under the brim encircled it for ten cubits going around the sea. There were two rows cast of striated sculptures.
7:25 And it was standing upon twelve oxen, of which three were looking toward the north, and three toward the west, and three toward the south, and three toward the east. And the sea above was over them. And their posteriors were entirely hidden within.
7:26 And the basin was the thickness of three twelfths. And its brim was like the brim of a chalice, or like the outturned petal of a lily. It contained two thousand baths.
7:27 And he made ten bases of brass: each base was four cubits in length, and four cubits in width, ary telo hakiho ny hahavony.
7:28 And the work itself of the bases was engraved; and there were sculptures between the junctures.
7:29 And between the little crowns and the edges, there were lions, sy omby, and cherubim; and similarly in the junctures above. And under the lions and oxen were something like bands of brass hanging down.
7:30 And each base had four wheels, with axels of brass. And at the four sides were something like little arms, under the cast basin, facing away from one another.
7:31 koa, the mouth of the interior of the basin was at the top of the head. And what was visible outside was of one cubit all around, and altogether it had one cubit and a half. Now at the corners of the columns were diverse engravings. And the spaces between the columns were square, not round.
7:32 And the four wheels, which were at the four corners of the base, were joined to one another under the base. The height of one wheel held one cubit and a half.
7:33 Now these were the kind of wheels such as are often made for a chariot. And their axels, and spokes, and tires, and centers were all cast.
7:34 And the four little arms, which were at each corner of a base, were cast and joined together as part of the base itself.
7:35 And at the summit of the base, there was a round stand of one half cubit, fabricated so that the basin could be placed upon it, having its engravings, and various sculptures of its own.
7:36 He also engraved those plates, which were of brass. And at the corners were cherubim, and lions, and palm trees, standing out, as if in the likeness of a man, so that they seemed not to be engraved, but placed adjacent on all sides.
7:37 In this manner, he made ten bases with the same casting and measure, and very similar engravings.
7:38 He also made ten hand basins of brass. One hand basin contained four baths, and was of four cubits. And each basin he set upon a base, which is ten bases.
7:39 And he stationed the ten bases, five to the right side of the temple, and five to the left. And the sea he placed to the right side of the temple, opposite the east, manatrika ny atsimo.
7:40 Then Hiram made cooking pots, and trays, and small hooks. And he completed all the work of king Solomon in the temple of the Lord:
7:41 the two columns, and the two cords of the heads over the tops of the columns, and the two networks which covered the two cords that were above the tops of the columns;
7:42 and the four hundred pomegranates for the two networks, two turnings of pomegranates for each network, in order to cover the cords of the heads, which were above the tops of the columns;
7:43 and the ten bases, and the ten basins on the bases;
7:44 and the one sea, and the twelve oxen under the sea;
7:45 and the cooking pots, and the trays, and the small hooks. All of the items that Hiram made for king Solomon, for the house of the Lord, were of golden brass.
7:46 In the open regions near the Jordan, the king cast these, in the clay soil between Succoth and Zarethan.
7:47 And Solomon positioned all the items. But because of its exceedingly great amount, the brass was not weighed.
7:48 And Solomon made all the furniture for the house of the Lord: ny alitara volamena, and the table of gold, upon which the bread of the presence would be placed;
7:49 and the gold lampstands, five to the right, and five to the left, opposite the oracle, of pure gold; and likenesses of lily blossoms, with lamps above them, volamena; and gold tongs;
7:50 and waters pots, and little forks, ary ny vilia baolina, and little mortars, and censers, of the purest gold; and the hinges of the doors, for the interior house of the Holy of Holies and for the doors of the house of the temple, which were of gold.
7:51 And Solomon perfected all the work that he was doing in the house of the Lord. And he brought in the things that his father David had sanctified: ny vola, ary ny volamena, and the vessels. And he stored these in the treasuries of the house of the Lord.

8:1 Then all those greater by birth of Israel, with the leaders of the tribes and the rulers of the families of the sons of Israel, gathered together before king Solomon at Jerusalem, so that they might carry the ark of the covenant of the Lord, from the city of David, izany hoe, from Zion.
8:2 And all of Israel assembled before king Solomon, on the solemn day in the month of Ethanim, which is the seventh month.
8:3 And all the elders of Israel arrived, and the priests took up the ark.
8:4 And they carried the ark of the Lord, and the tabernacle of the covenant, and all the vessels of the Sanctuary, which were in the tabernacle; and the priests and the Levites carried these.
8:5 Then king Solomon, and the entire multitude of Israel, who had assembled before him, advanced with him before the ark. And they immolated sheep and oxen, which could not be numbered or estimated.
8:6 And the priests brought in the ark of the covenant of the Lord to its place, into the oracle of the temple, ao amin'ny Masina Indrindra, under the wings of the cherubim.
8:7 Fa tokoa, the cherubim extended their wings over the place of the ark, and they protected the ark and its bars from above.
8:8 And since the bars projected outward, their ends were visible from without, in the Sanctuary before the oracle; but they were not visible farther outward. And they have been in that place even to the present day.
8:9 Now inside the ark, there was nothing other than the two tablets of stone, which Moses had placed in it at Horeb, when the Lord formed a covenant with the sons of Israel, when they departed from the land of Egypt.
8:10 Avy eo dia nitranga fa, when the priests had exited from the Sanctuary, a cloud filled the house of the Lord.
8:11 And the priests were unable to stand and minister, because of the cloud. For the glory of the Lord had filled the house of the Lord.
8:12 Then Solomon said: “The Lord has said that he would dwell in a cloud.
8:13 Building, I have built a house as your dwelling place, your most firm throne forever.”
8:14 And the king turned his face, and he blessed the entire assembly of Israel. For the entire assembly of Israel was standing.
8:15 And Solomon said: "Isaorana anie ny Tompo, ny Andriamanitry ny Isiraely,, who spoke with his mouth to my father David, ary izay, with his own hands, has perfected it, nanao hoe::
8:16 ‘From the day when I led my people Israel away from Egypt, I did not choose any city out of all the tribes of Israel, so that a house would be built, and so that my name might be there. Fa tsy, I chose David to be over my people Israel.’
8:17 And my father David wanted to build a house to the name of the Lord, ny Andriamanitry ny Isiraely,.
8:18 But the Lord said to my father David: ‘Since you have planned in your heart to build a house to my name, you have done well by considering this plan in your mind.
8:19 Na izany aza tena, you shall not build a house for me. Fa tsy, ny zanakao, who shall go forth from your loins, he himself shall build a house to my name.’
8:20 The Lord has confirmed his word which he spoke. And so I stand in place of my father David, and I sit upon the throne of Israel, just as the Lord said. And I have built a house to the name of the Lord, ny Andriamanitry ny Isiraely,.
8:21 And there I have appointed a place for the ark, in which is the covenant of the Lord that he struck with our fathers, when they went forth from the land of Egypt.”
8:22 Then Solomon stood before the altar of the Lord, in the sight of the assembly of Israel, and he extended his hands toward heaven.
8:23 Ary hoy izy:: “Lord God of Israel, there is no God like you, in heaven above, nor on the earth below. You preserve covenant and mercy with your servants, who walk before you with all their heart.
8:24 You have fulfilled, for your servant David, ny raiko, that which you said to him. With your mouth, you spoke; and with your hands, you completed; just this day proves.
8:25 Koa ankehitriny, Ry Jehovah, Andriamanitry ny Isiraely,, fulfill, for your servant David, ny raiko, that which you spoke to him, nanao hoe:, ‘There shall not be taken away from you a man before me, who may sit upon the throne of Israel, if only your sons will guard their way, so that they walk before me, just as you have walked in my sight.’
8:26 Ary ankehitriny, Ry Jehovah, Andriamanitry ny Isiraely,, establish your words, which you spoke to your servant David, ny raiko.
8:27 Is it, avy eo, to be understood that truly God would dwell upon the earth? For if heaven, and the heavens of heavens, are not able to contain you, how much less this house, izay nataoko?
8:28 Yet look with favor upon the prayer of your servant and upon his petitions, Tompo O, Andriamanitra ô. Listen to the hymn and the prayer, which your servant prays before you this day,
8:29 so that your eyes may be open over this house, andro aman'alina, over the house about which you said, ‘My name shall be there,’ so that you may heed the prayer that your servant is praying in this place to you.
8:30 So may you heed the supplication of your servant and of your people Israel, whatever they will pray for in this place, and so may you heed them in your dwelling place in heaven. And when you heed, you will be gracious.
8:31 But if any man sins against his neighbor, and he has any kind of an oath by which he is bound, and he arrives because of the oath, before your altar in your house,
8:32 you will hear in heaven, and you will act and judge your servants, condemning the impious, and repaying his own way upon his own head, but justifying the just, and rewarding him in accord with his justice.
8:33 And if your people Israel will have fled from their enemies, because they have sinned against you, and doing penance and confessing to your name, shall arrive and pray and petition you in this house,
8:34 listen in heaven, and forgive the sin of your people Israel, and lead them back to the land, which you gave to their fathers.
8:35 And if the heavens have closed, so that there is no rain, because of their sins, ary izy ireo, praying in this place, shall do penance to your name, and shall be converted from their sins, by occasion of their afflictions,
8:36 hear them from heaven, and forgive the sins of your servants and of your people Israel. And reveal to them the good way, along which they should walk, and grant rain upon your land, which you have given to your people as a possession.
8:37 Avy eo, if famine rises over the land, or pestilence, or corrupt air, or blight, or locust, or mildew, or if their enemy afflicts them, besieging the gates, or any harm or infirmity,
8:38 or whatever curse or divine intervention may happen to any man among your people Israel, if anyone understands, having been wounded in his heart, and if he will have extended his hands in this house,
8:39 you will hear in heaven, in your dwelling place, and you will forgive. And you will act so that you give to each one in accord with his own ways, just as you see in his heart, for you alone know the heart of all the sons of men.
8:40 So may they fear you, all the days that they live upon the face of the land, which you have given to our fathers.
8:41 Koa, the foreigner too, who is not of your people Israel, when he will have arrived from a distant land because of your name, for they shall hear about your great name, and your strong hand,
8:42 and your outstretched arm everywhere: so when he arrives and prays in this place,
8:43 you will listen in heaven, in the firmament of your dwelling place. And you will do all the things, for which that foreigner will have called upon you. So may all the peoples of the earth learn to fear your name, just as your people Israel do. And so may they show that your name has been invoked over this house, izay nataoko.
8:44 And if your people have gone out to war against their enemies, along whatever way you will send them, they shall pray to you in the direction of the city, which you have chosen, and toward the house, which I have built to your name.
8:45 And you will hear in heaven their prayers and their petitions. And you will accomplish judgment for them.
8:46 But if they sin against you, for there is no man who does not sin, ary ianao, rehefa tezitra, deliver them to their enemies, and they will have been led away as captives to the land of their enemies, whether far or near,
8:47 and if they do penance in their heart, in the place of captivity, and having been converted, make supplication to you in their captivity, nanao hoe:, ‘We have sinned; we acted unjustly; we committed impiety,'
8:48 and they return to you with all their heart and all their soul, in the land of their enemies, to which they have been led away as captives, and if they pray to you in the direction of their land, which you gave to their fathers, and of the city, which you have chosen, and of the temple, which I have built to your name:
8:49 you will hear in heaven, in the firmament of your throne, their prayers and their petitions. And you will accomplish their judgment.
8:50 And you will forgive your people, who have sinned against you, and all their iniquities, by which they have transgressed against you. And you will grant to them mercy in the sight of those who have made them captives, so that they may take pity on them.
8:51 For they are your people and your inheritance, whom you have led away from the land of Egypt, from the midst of the furnace of iron.
8:52 So may your eyes be open to the supplication of your servant and of your people Israel. And so may you heed them in all the things about which they will call upon you.
8:53 For you have separated them to yourself as an inheritance, from among all the peoples of the earth, just as you spoke by Moses, mpanomponao, when you led our fathers away from Egypt, O Lord God.”
8:54 Ary nony fa, when Solomon had completed praying this entire prayer and supplication to the Lord, he rose up from the sight of the altar of the Lord. For he had fixed both knees upon the ground, and he had extended his hands toward heaven.
8:55 Then he stood and blessed the entire assembly of Israel in a great voice, nanao hoe::
8:56 "Isaorana anie ny Tompo, who has given rest to his people Israel, in accord with all that he said. Not even one word, out of all the good things that he spoke by his servant Moses, has fallen away.
8:57 May the Lord our God be with us, just as he was with our fathers, not abandoning us, and not rejecting us.
8:58 But may he incline our hearts to himself, so that we may walk in all his ways, and keep his commandments, and his ceremonies, and whatever judgments he commanded to our fathers.
8:59 And may these my words, by which I have prayed before the Lord, be near to the Lord our God, andro sy alina, so that he may accomplish judgment for his servant and for his people Israel, mandritra ny andro tsirairay.
8:60 So may all the peoples of the earth know that the Lord himself is God, ary tsy misy hafa afa-tsy izy.
8:61 koa, may our hearts be perfect with the Lord our God, so that we may walk in his decrees, and keep his commandments, as also on this day.”
8:62 Ary ny mpanjaka, and all of Israel with him, immolated victims before the Lord.
8:63 And Solomon slew sacrifices of peace offerings, which he immolated to the Lord: twenty-two thousand oxen, and twenty thousand one hundred sheep. And the king and all the sons of Israel dedicated the temple of the Lord.
8:64 Tamin'izany andro izany, the king sanctified the middle of the atrium, which was before the house of the Lord. Fa amin 'izany toerana, he offered holocaust, and sacrifice, and the fat of peace offerings. For the bronze altar, which was before the Lord, was too small and was not able to hold the holocaust, and the sacrifice, and the fat of the peace offerings.
8:65 Then Solomon made, tamin'izany fotoana izany, a celebratory festival, and all of Israel with him, dia nisy vahoaka betsaka, from the entrance of Hamath to the river of Egypt, in the sight of the Lord our God, for seven days plus seven days, izany hoe, fourteen days.
8:66 And on the eighth day, he dismissed the people. Ary mitso-drano ny mpanjaka, they set out for their tents, rejoicing and cheerful in heart over all the good things that the Lord had done for his servant David and for his people Israel.

1 Mpanjaka 9

9:1 Ary nitranga fa, when Solomon had perfected the building of the house of the Lord, and the king’s house, and all that he had desired and had willed to do,
9:2 the Lord appeared to him a second time, just as he had appeared to him at Gibeon.
9:3 Ary hoy Jehovah taminy: “I have heard your prayer and your petition, which you prayed before me. I have sanctified this house, which you have built, so that I may place my name there forever, and so that my eyes and my heart will be there for all days.
9:4 koa, if you will walk before me, just as your father walked, in simplicity of heart and in equity, and you do all that I have instructed to you, and you keep my laws and my judgments,
9:5 then I will set the throne of your kingdom over Israel forever, just as I promised your father David, nanao hoe:: ‘A man from your stock shall not be taken away from the throne of Israel.’
9:6 But if you and your sons, wandering, will have turned away, not following me, and not keeping my commandments and my ceremonies, which I have proposed to you, but instead you go away, and you serve strange gods and adore them,
9:7 then I will take away Israel from the face of the land, which I have given to them. And the temple, which I have sanctified to my name, I will cast out from my sight. And Israel will be a proverb and a parable among all the peoples.
9:8 And this house will become an example: anyone who passes by it will be stupefied, and he will hiss and say, ‘Why has the Lord acted in this way to this land and to this house?'
9:9 And they will respond: ‘Because they abandoned the Lord their God, who led their fathers away from the land of Egypt, and they followed strange gods, and they adored them and served them. Izany no antony, the Lord led all this evil over them.’ ”
9:10 Avy eo, when twenty years were fulfilled, after Solomon had built the two houses, izany hoe, the house of the Lord, and the house of the king,
9:11 Hiram, ny mpanjakan'i Tyro, having supplied Solomon with cedar wood, and spruce wood, ary ny volamena, in accord with all that he needed, then Solomon gave Hiram twenty towns in the land of Galilee.
9:12 And Hiram went out of Tyre, so that he might view the towns that Solomon had given to him. And they did not please him.
9:13 Ary hoy izy:, “Are these the cities that you have given to me, rahalahy?” And he called them the land of Cabul, mandraka androany.
9:14 And Hiram sent to king Solomon one hundred twenty talents of gold.
9:15 This is the sum of the expenses that king Solomon offered for the building of the house of the Lord, and his own house, and for Millo, and the wall of Jerusalem, and Hazor, and Megiddo, and Gezer.
9:16 Farao, ny mpanjakan'i Egypta, ascended and seized Gezer, Ary nandoro azy tamin'ny afo. And he put to death the Canaanite who was living in the city, and he gave it as a dowry for his daughter, the wife of Solomon.
9:17 Noho izany, Solomon built up Gezer, and lower Beth-horon,
9:18 and Baalath, and Palmira in the land of the wilderness.
9:19 And all the towns which belonged to him, and which were without walls, he walled, along with the cities of the chariots, and the cities of the horsemen, and whatever was pleasing to him that he might build in Jerusalem, and in Lebanon, and in the entire land of his dominion.
9:20 All the people who had remained of the Amorites, ary ny Hetita, sy ny Perizita, and the Hivites, and the Jebusites, who were not of the sons of Israel,
9:21 their sons, who had remained in the land, izany hoe, those whom the sons of Israel had not been able to destroy, Solomon made tributary, mandraka androany.
9:22 But from the sons of Israel, Solomon did not appoint anyone at all to serve, except the men of war, and his ministers, and leaders, and commanders, and the overseers of the chariots and the horses.
9:23 Now there were five hundred fifty leaders in the first place over all the works of Solomon, and they had people subject to them, and these were given orders for the appointed works.
9:24 And the daughter of Pharaoh went up from the city of David to her house, which Solomon had built for her. Then he built up Millo.
9:25 koa, three times each year, Solomon offered holocausts and victims of peace offerings, upon the altar that he had built to the Lord, and he burned incense before the Lord. And the temple was perfected.
9:26 And king Solomon made a navy at Ezion Geber, which is beside Eloth, on the shores of the Red Sea, in the land of Idumea.
9:27 And Hiram sent his servants to that navy, the sailors and those knowledgeable about the sea, with the servants of Solomon.
9:28 And when they had gone to Ophir, taking from there four hundred twenty talents of gold, they brought it to king Solomon.

10:1 Avy eo, koa, the queen of Sheba, having heard of the fame of Solomon in the name of the Lord, arrived to test him with enigmas.
10:2 And entering into Jerusalem with a great retinue, and with riches, and with camels carrying aromatics, and with an exceedingly great quantity of gold and precious stones, she went to king Solomon. And she spoke to him all that she held in her heart.
10:3 And Solomon taught her, in all the words that she had proposed to him. There was not any word which was able to be hidden from the king, or which he did not answer for her.
10:4 Avy eo, when the queen of Sheba saw all the wisdom of Solomon, and the house that he had built,
10:5 and the food of his table, and the dwelling places of his servants, and the rows of his ministers, and their apparel, and the cupbearers, and the holocausts that he was offering in the house of the Lord, she had no longer any spirit in her.
10:6 And she said to the king: “The word is true, which I have heard in my own land,
10:7 about your words and your wisdom. But I did not believe those who explained it to me, until I went myself and saw it with my own eyes. And I have discovered that the half of it has not been told to me: your wisdom and works are greater than the report that I have heard.
10:8 Blessed are your men, and blessed are your servants, who stand before you always, and who hear your wisdom.
10:9 Blessed is the Lord your God, whom you have greatly pleased, and who has placed you upon the throne of Israel. For the Lord loves Israel forever, and he has appointed you as king, so that you may accomplish judgment and justice.”
10:10 Then she gave the king one hundred twenty talents of gold, and an exceedingly great amount of aromatics and precious stones. No greater quantity of aromatics was ever again brought forth as these, which the queen of Sheba gave to king Solomon.
10:11 Avy eo, koa, the navy of Hiram, which carried gold from Ophir, brought an exceedingly great quantity of thyine wood and precious stones from Ophir.
10:12 And the king made, from the thyine wood, the posts of the house of the Lord, and of the house of the king, and citharas and lyres for the musicians. No thyine trees of this kind were ever again brought forth or seen, na dia hatramin'ny andro ankehitriny.
10:13 Then king Solomon gave the queen of Sheba all that she desired and requested of him, aside from what he himself had offered to her from his royal bounty. And she returned and went away to her own land, with her servants.
10:14 Now the weight of the gold that was brought to Solomon each year was six hundred sixty-six talents of gold,
10:15 aside from what was brought to him by the men who were over the tributes, and by the merchants, and by those selling every kind of small item, and by all the kings of Arabia, and by the rulers of the land.
10:16 koa, king Solomon made two hundred large shields from the purest gold. He dispensed six hundred shekels of gold for the layers of one shield.
10:17 And for the three hundred crescent-shaped shields of tested gold, there were three hundred minas of gold covering one shield. And the king placed these in the house of the forest of Lebanon.
10:18 koa, king Solomon made a great throne from ivory. And he clothed it with a great quantity of red gold.
10:19 The throne had six steps, and the summit of the throne was rounded in the back section. And there were two hands, on one side and the other, holding the seat. And two lions were standing beside each hand,
10:20 with twelve little lions standing upon the six steps, on one side and the other. No similar work has been made, ever in any kingdom.
10:21 Koa, all the vessels from which king Solomon would drink were of gold. And all the items in the house of the forest of Lebanon were of the purest gold. There was no silver, nor was any accounting made of silver in the days of Solomon.
10:22 For the navy of the king, once every three years, went with the navy of Hiram by sea to Tarshish, bringing from there gold, ary ny volafotsy, and elephant tusks, and primates, and peacocks.
10:23 Ary noho izany, king Solomon was magnified above all the kings of the earth in riches and in wisdom.
10:24 And all the earth desired to see the face of Solomon, so as to hear his wisdom, which God had granted to his heart.
10:25 And each one brought him gifts, vessels of silver and of gold, clothing and weapons of war, as well as aromatics, ary ny soavaly, and mules, throughout each year.
10:26 And Solomon gathered together the chariots and horsemen. And he had one thousand four hundred chariots, and twelve thousand horsemen. And he placed them in the walled cities, and with the king at Jerusalem.
10:27 And he caused silver to be as abundant in Jerusalem as stones, and he supplied a multitude of cedars like the sycamores that grow in the plains.
10:28 And horses were brought for Solomon from Egypt and from Kue. For the merchants of the king were buying these from Kue. And they paid out the established price.
10:29 Now a four-horse chariot would be sent from Egypt for six hundred shekels of silver, and a horse for one hundred and fifty. Ary izany no fomba, all the kings of the Hittites and of Syria were selling horses.

11:1 But king Solomon loved many foreign women, including the daughter of Pharaoh, and women of Moab, and of Ammon, and of Idumea, and of Sidon, and of the Hittites.
11:2 These were of the nations about whom the Lord said to the sons of Israel: “You shall not enter to them, and none of them shall enter to anyone of yours. For they will most certainly turn aside your hearts, so that you follow their gods.” And yet, to these Solomon was joined with a greatly enflamed love.
11:3 And for him, there were seven hundred wives, as if they were queens, and three hundred concubines. And the women turned aside his heart.
11:4 And when now he was old, his heart was perverted by the women, so that he followed strange gods. And his heart was not perfect with the Lord his God, as was the heart of his father David.
11:5 For Solomon worshipped Ashtoreth, the goddess of the Sidonians, and Milcom, the idol of the Ammonites.
11:6 And Solomon did what was not pleasing in the sight of the Lord. And he did not continue to follow the Lord, as his father David did.
11:7 Then Solomon built a shrine for Chemosh, the idol of Moab, on the mount that is opposite Jerusalem, and for Milcom, the idol of the sons of Ammon.
11:8 And he acted in this manner for all his foreign wives, who were burning incense and immolating to their gods.
11:9 Ary noho izany, the Lord became angry with Solomon, because his mind had been turned away from the Lord, ny Andriamanitry ny Isiraely,, who had appeared to him twice,
11:10 and who had instructed him about this matter, lest he follow strange gods. But he did not observe what the Lord commanded to him.
11:11 Ary noho izany, the Lord said to Solomon: “Because you have this with you, and because you have not kept my covenant and my precepts, which I commanded to you, I will tear apart your kingdom, and I will give it to your servant.
11:12 Na izany aza tena, I will not do it in your days, for the sake of your father David. From the hand of your son, I will tear it away.
11:13 Neither will I take away the whole kingdom. Fa tsy, I will grant one tribe to your son, for the sake of David, mpanompoko, and Jerusalem, which I have chosen.”
11:14 Then the Lord raised up an adversary to Solomon, Hadad of Idumea, from an offspring of the king who was in Idumea.
11:15 For when David was in Idumea, Joaba, ny mpitarika ny miaramila, had ascended to bury those who had been killed, and he had killed every male in Idumea.
11:16 And Joab remained in that place for six months, with all of Israel, until he had put to death every male in Idumea.
11:17 Then Hadad fled, he and some men of Idumea from among the servants of his father with him, so that he might enter into Egypt. But Hadad was then a little boy.
11:18 And when they had risen up from Midian, they went into Paran, and they took with them some men from Paran. And they went into Egypt, to Pharaoh, ny mpanjakan'i Egypta. And he gave him a house, and he appointed food for him, and he assigned land to him.
11:19 And Hadad found great favor before Pharaoh, so much so that he gave to him as wife, the sister of his own wife, queen Tahpenes.
11:20 And the sister of Tahpenes bore to him a son, Genubath. And Tahpenes raised him in the house of Pharaoh. And Genubath was living with Pharaoh and his sons.
11:21 And when Hadad had heard in Egypt that David had slept with his fathers, and that Joab, ny mpitarika ny miaramila, had died, he said to Pharaoh, "Afaho aho, so that I may go to my own land.”
11:22 Ary hoy Farao taminy:, “But what is lacking to you with me, so that you would seek to go to your own land?"Fa izy namaly: “Nothing. Yet I beg you that you may release me.”
11:23 koa, God raised up against him an adversary, Rezon, the son of Eliada, who had fled from his lord, Hadad-Ezer, ny mpanjakan'i Zoba.
11:24 And he gathered together men against him. And when David put those of Zobah to death, he became a leader of robbers. And they went away to Damascus, and they lived there. And they appointed him to be king of Damascus.
11:25 And he was an adversary to Israel during all the days of Solomon. And such is the evil of Hadad and of his hatred against Israel. And he reigned in Syria.
11:26 koa, there was Jeroboam, ny zanak'i Nebata, an Ephraimite from Zeredah, a servant of Solomon, whose mother was named Zeruah, a widowed woman. He lifted up his hand against the king.
11:27 And this is the reason for his rebellion against him: that Solomon built up Millo, and that he filled in a deep hole in the city of David, ny rainy.
11:28 Now Jeroboam was a valiant and powerful man. And perceiving the young man to be ingenious and industrious, Solomon appointed him as first ruler over the tributes of the entire house of Joseph.
11:29 Ary nony, amin'izany andro, that Jeroboam departed from Jerusalem. And the prophet Ahijah, the Shilonite, wearing with a new cloak, found him on the way. And the two were alone in the field.
11:30 And taking his new cloak, with which he was covered, Ahijah tore it into twelve parts.
11:31 And he said to Jeroboam: “Take ten pieces for yourself. Fa izao no lazain'i Jehovah, ny Andriamanitry ny Isiraely,: 'Indro, I will tear the kingdom from the hand of Solomon, and I will give to you ten tribes.
11:32 Yet one tribe shall remain with him, for the sake of my servant, David, as well as Jerusalem, the city which I have chosen out of all the tribes of Israel.
11:33 For he has abandoned me, and he has adored Ashtoreth, the goddess of the Sidonians, and Chemosh, the god of Moab, and Milcom, the god of the sons of Ammon. And he has not walked in my ways, so that he would do justice before me, and so that he would carry out my precepts and judgments, as his father David did.
11:34 But I will not take the entire kingdom from his hand. Fa tsy, I will establish him as the ruler during all the days of his life, for the sake of my servant David, whom I chose, who kept my commandments and my precepts.
11:35 But I will take away the kingdom from the hand of his son, and I will give to you ten tribes.
11:36 Avy eo, to his son, I will give one tribe, so that there may remain a lamp for my servant David before me, for all days, tany Jerosalema, the city which I have chosen, so that my name would be there.
11:37 And I will take you up, and you shall reign over all that your soul desires. And you shall be king over Israel.
11:38 Noho izany, if you will listen to all that I will command you, and if you will walk in my ways, and do what is right in my sight, keeping my commandments and my precepts, just as my servant David did, then I will be with you, and I will build for you a faithful house, in the way that I built a house for David, and I will deliver Israel to you.
11:39 And I will afflict the offspring of David over this, but truly not for all days.’ ”
11:40 Noho izany, Solomon wanted to kill Jeroboam. But he rose up and fled away to Egypt, to Shishak, ny mpanjakan'i Egypta. And he was in Egypt until the death of Solomon.
11:41 Now the rest of the words of Solomon, and all that he did, and his wisdom: indro, these are all written in the book of the words of the days of Solomon.
11:42 And the days that Solomon reigned in Jerusalem, over all of Israel, were forty years.
11:43 And Solomon slept with his fathers, and he was buried in the city of David, ny rainy. And Rehoboam, zanany, no nanjaka nandimby azy.

12:1 Then Rehoboam went to Shechem. Fa amin 'izany toerana, all of Israel had gathered to appoint him as king.
12:2 Na izany aza tena, Jeroboam, ny zanak'i Nebata, while he was still in Egypt as a fugitive from the face of king Solomon, hearing of his death, returned from Egypt.
12:3 And they sent and called him. Noho izany, Jeroboam went, with the entire multitude of Israel, and they spoke to Rehoboam, nanao hoe::
12:4 “Your father imposed a very harsh yoke upon us. Ary noho izany, you should now take away a little from the very harsh rule of your father and from his very grievous yoke, which he imposed upon us, and we will serve you.”
12:5 Ary hoy Izy taminy:, "Andehana mandeha, until the third day, and then return to me.” And when the people had gone away,
12:6 king Rehoboam took counsel with the elders who had assisted before his father Solomon while he was still living. Ary hoy izy:, “What counsel do you give to me, so that I may respond to this people?"
12:7 Dia hoy ireo taminy, “If today you will obey and serve this people, and yield to their petition, and if you will speak lenient words to them, they will be your servants for all days.”
12:8 But he abandoned the counsel of the old men, which they had given to him. And he consulted the young men who had been raised with him, and who were assisting him.
12:9 Ary hoy Izy taminy:: “What counsel do you give to me, so that I may respond to this people, who have said to me: ‘Make light the yoke that your father imposed on us?'"
12:10 And the young men who had been raised with him, nanao hoe:: “You shall speak in this way to this people, who have spoken to you, nanao hoe:: ‘Your father weighed down our yoke. You should relieve us.’ You shall say this to them: ‘My little finger is thicker than the back of my father.
12:11 Ary ankehitriny, my father placed a heavy yoke upon you, but I will add more upon your yoke. My father cut you with whips, but I will beat you with scorpions.’ ”
12:12 Noho izany, Jeroboam and all the people went to Rehoboam on the third day, just as the king had spoken, nanao hoe:, “Return to me on the third day.”
12:13 And the king responded to the people harshly, leaving behind the counsel of the elders that they had given to him.
12:14 And he spoke to them according to the counsel of the young men, nanao hoe:: “My father weighed down your yoke, but I will add more to your yoke. My father cut you with whips, but I will beat you with scorpions.”
12:15 And the king did not acquiesce to the people. For the Lord had turned him away, so that he might raise up his word, which he had spoken by the hand of Ahijah, the Shilonite, to Jeroboam, ny zanak'i Nebata.
12:16 And so the people, seeing that the king had not been willing to listen to them, responded to him, nanao hoe:: “What part do we have in David? Or what inheritance do we have in the son of Jesse? Go to your own tents, Ry Isiraely. Ary Davida, see to your own house.” And Israel went away to their own tents.
12:17 But over all the sons of Israel who were living in the cities of Judah, Rehoboam reigned.
12:18 Then king Rehoboam sent Adoram, who was over the tribute. And all of Israel stoned him, dia maty izy. Noho izany, king Rehoboam hurrying, climbed into the chariot, and fled to Jerusalem.
12:19 And Israel drew away from the house of David, na dia hatramin'ny andro ankehitriny.
12:20 Ary nony fa, when all of Israel had heard that Jeroboam had returned, gathering an assembly, they sent and called him, and they appointed him as king over all of Israel. And no one followed the house of David, afa-tsy ny firenen'i Joda ihany.
12:21 Then Rehoboam went to Jerusalem, and he gathered together the entire house of Judah, and the tribe of Benjamin, one hundred and eighty thousand elect men of war, so that they might fight against the house of Israel, and might bring the kingdom back to Rehoboam, the son of Solomon.
12:22 But the word of the Lord came to Shemaiah, ilay lehilahin'Andriamanitra, nanao hoe::
12:23 “Speak to Rehoboam, the son of Solomon, ny mpanjakan'ny Joda,, and to all the house of Judah, and to Benjamin, and to the rest of the people, nanao hoe::
12:24 'Izao no lazain'i Jehovah: You shall not go up, and you shall not make war against your brothers, ny zanak'i Isiraely. Let each man return to his own house. For this word came from me.’ ” And they listened to the word of the Lord, and they returned from the journey, as the Lord had instructed them.
12:25 Then Jeroboam built up Shechem, on mount Ephraim, ka dia nonina tao. Ary niala teo, he built up Penuel.
12:26 And Jeroboam said in his heart: “Now the kingdom will return to the house of David,
12:27 if this people ascend to offer sacrifices in the house of the Lord at Jerusalem. And the heart of this people will be converted to their lord Rehoboam, ny mpanjakan'ny Joda,, and they will put me to death, and return to him.”
12:28 And devising a plan, he made two golden calves. Ary hoy Izy taminy:: “No longer choose to ascend to Jerusalem. Indro, these are your gods, Ry Isiraely, izay nitondra anareo hiala tany amin'ny tany Egypta!"
12:29 And he stationed one in Bethel, and the other in Dan.
12:30 And this word became an occasion of sin. For the people went to adore the calf, even to Dan.
12:31 And he made shrines on the high places, and he made priests out of the lowest people, who were not of the sons of Levi.
12:32 And he appointed a solemn day in the eighth month, tamin'ny andro fahadimy ambin'ny folo tamin'ny volana, in imitation of the solemnity that was celebrated in Judah. And ascending to the altar, he acted similarly in Bethel, so that he immolated to the calves, izay efa nataony. And in Bethel, he appointed priests of the high places, izay efa nataony.
12:33 And he ascended to the altar, which he had raised up in Bethel, on the fifteenth day of the eighth month, the day that he had decided in his own heart. And he made a solemnity to the sons of Israel, and he ascended to the altar, so that he might burn incense.

1 Mpanjaka 13

13:1 Ary indro, by the word of the Lord, a man of God went from Judah to Bethel, when Jeroboam was standing over the altar, and burning incense.
13:2 And by the word of the Lord, he cried out against the altar. Ary hoy izy:: “O altar, O altar! Izao no lazain'i Jehovah: 'Indro, a son will be born to the house of David, Josiah by name. And upon you, he will immolate the priests of the high places, who now burn incense upon you. And upon you, he will burn up the bones of men.’ ”
13:3 And he gave a sign on the same day, nanao hoe:: “This will be the sign that the Lord has spoken. Indro, the altar shall be torn apart, and the ashes that are upon it shall be poured out.”
13:4 And when the king had heard the word of the man of God, which he had cried out against the altar at Bethel, he extended his hand from the altar, nanao hoe:, “Apprehend him!” But his hand, which he had extended against him, withered. And he was unable to draw it back to himself.
13:5 koa, the altar was torn apart, and the ashes were poured out from the altar, in accord with the sign that the man of God had predicted by the word of the Lord.
13:6 And the king said to the man of God, “Entreat the face of the Lord your God, and pray for me, so that my hand may be restored to me.” And the man of God prayed before the face of the Lord, and the hand of the king was restored to him, and it became as it had been before.
13:7 Then the king said to the man of God: “Come home with me, so that you may dine. And I will give you gifts.”
13:8 And the man of God responded to the king: “Even if you will give me one half part of your house, I will not go with you, nor eat bread, nor drink water in this place.
13:9 For so it was commanded to me by the word of the Lord, ordering: ‘You shall not eat bread, and you shall not drink water, nor shall you return by the way that you came.’ ”
13:10 Then he departed by another way, and he did not return along the way that he had traveled to Bethel.
13:11 Now a certain elderly prophet was living in Bethel. His sons went to him, and they described to him all the works which the man of God had accomplished on that day in Bethel. And they described to their father the words that he had spoken to the king.
13:12 And their father said to them, “By which way did he depart?” His sons showed him the way by which the man of God, who had come from Judah, had departed.
13:13 And he said to his sons, “Saddle the donkey for me.” And when they had saddled it, he climbed on,
13:14 and he went away after the man of God. And he found him sitting under a terebinth tree. Ary hoy izy taminy:, “Are you the man of God who came from Judah?"Dia namaly, "Izaho dia."
13:15 Ary hoy izy taminy:, “Come home with me, so that you may eat bread.”
13:16 Fa hoy izy:: “I am not able to turn back, nor to go with you. Neither will I eat bread, or drink water in this place.
13:17 For the Lord has spoken to me, by the word of the Lord, nanao hoe:, “You shall not eat bread, and you shall not drink water in that place, nor shall you return by the way that you arrived.”
13:18 Ary hoy izy taminy:: "I, koa, am a prophet like you. And an Angel spoke to me, by the word of the Lord, nanao hoe:, ‘Lead him back with you to your house, so that he may eat bread, and drink water.’ ” And so he deceived him.
13:19 And he led him back with him. Then he ate bread and drank water in his house.
13:20 And while they were sitting at table, the word of the Lord came to the prophet who had led him back.
13:21 And he cried out to the man of God who had arrived from Judah, nanao hoe:: "Izao no lazain'i Jehovah: Because you were not obedient to the mouth of the Lord, and you did not keep the commandment that the Lord your God instructed to you,
13:22 and you turned back, and ate bread, and drank water in the place where he commanded you that you should not eat bread, nor drink water: your dead body shall not be carried back to the sepulcher of your fathers.”
13:23 And when he had eaten and had drunk, he saddled his donkey for the prophet whom he had led back.
13:24 And when he had departed, a lion found him along the way, and it killed him, and his dead body was left upon the road. Now the donkey was standing beside him. And the lion was standing beside the dead body.
13:25 Ary indro, men who were passing by saw the dead body lying in the road, with the lion standing beside the body. And they went and made it widely known in the city where that elderly prophet was living.
13:26 And when that prophet, who had led him back from the way, had heard it, hoy izy:: “It is the man of God, who was disobedient to the mouth of the Lord. And the Lord has delivered him to the lion. And it has torn him apart and killed him, araka ny tenin 'ny Tompo, which he spoke to him.”
13:27 And he said to his sons, “Saddle a donkey for me.” And when they had saddled it,
13:28 and he had departed, he found the dead body lying on the road, with the donkey and the lion standing beside the dead body. The lion did not eat from the dead body, nor did it harm the donkey.
13:29 Then the prophet took the dead body of the man of God, and he placed it upon the donkey, and returning, he brought it into the city of the elderly prophet, so that he might mourn for him.
13:30 And he placed his dead body in his own sepulcher. And they mourned for him, nanao hoe:: "Indrisy! Alas! My brother!"
13:31 And when they had mourned over him, he said to his sons: “When I will have died, bury me in the sepulcher in which the man of God was buried. Place my bones beside his bones.
13:32 Fa tokoa, the word will arrived, which he predicted by the word of the Lord, against the altar, which is in Bethel, and against all the shrines of the high places, which are in the cities of Samaria.”
13:33 After these words, Jeroboam did not turn back from his very evil way. Fa tsy, ny mifanohitra, he made priests for the high places out of the least of the people. Whosoever was willing, he filled his hand, and he became a priest of the high places.
13:34 Ary noho izany antony, the house of Jeroboam sinned, and was uprooted, and was wiped from the face of the earth.

1 Mpanjaka 14

14:1 In that time Abijah, the son of Jeroboam, became ill.
14:2 And Jeroboam said to his wife: "Mitsangàna, and change clothing, so that you will not be recognized to be the wife of Jeroboam. And go to Shiloh, where the prophet Ahijah is, who said to me that I should reign over this people.
14:3 koa, take in your hand ten loaves, and dried bread, and a container of honey, and go to him. For he will reveal to you what will happen to this boy.”
14:4 The wife of Jeroboam did just as he had said. Ary nitsangana, she went away to Shiloh. And she arrived at the house of Ahijah. But he was unable to see, because his eyes had dimmed due to old age.
14:5 Then the Lord said to Ahijah: "Indro, the wife of Jeroboam enters, so that she may consult you over her son, who is ill. You shall say one thing and another to her.” Therefore, as she was entering, not presenting herself to be who she was,
14:6 Ahijah heard the sound of her feet, entering through the door. Ary hoy izy:: "Midira, O wife of Jeroboam. Why do you pretend to be someone you are not? But I have been sent to you with harsh news.
14:7 Mandehana, and tell Jeroboam: 'Izao no lazain'i Jehovah, ny Andriamanitry ny Isiraely,: Although I exalted you from the midst of the people, and I granted to you to be the leader over my people Israel,
14:8 and I tore the kingdom away from the house of David, and I gave it to you, yet you have not been like David, mpanompoko, who kept my commandments, and who followed me with his whole heart, doing what was pleasing in my sight.
14:9 Fa tsy, you have worked evil beyond all those who were before you. And you have made for yourself strange gods and molten images, so that you provoke me to anger. And you have cast me behind your back.
14:10 Izany no antony, indro, I will lead evils over the house of Jeroboam, and I will strike down from Jeroboam that which urinates against a wall, and that which is lame, and that which is last in Israel. And I will cleanse that which remains of the house of Jeroboam, just as dung is usually cleaned away, until there is purity.
14:11 Those who will have died of Jeroboam in the city, the dogs will devour them. And those who will have died in the field, the birds of the heavens will devour them. For the Lord has spoken.’
14:12 Noho izany, you must rise up, and go to your house. And in the city, at the very entrance of your feet, the boy will die.
14:13 And all of Israel will mourn him, and will bury him. For he alone of Jeroboam shall be brought into a sepulcher. For concerning him, there has been found a good word from the Lord, ny Andriamanitry ny Isiraely,, in the house of Jeroboam.
14:14 But the Lord has appointed for himself a king over Israel, who will strike down the house of Jeroboam, in this day and in this time.
14:15 And the Lord God shall strike Israel, just as a reed is usually shaken in the water. And he will uproot Israel from this good land, which he gave to their fathers. And he will winnow them beyond the river. For they have made for themselves sacred groves, so that they have provoked the Lord.
14:16 And the Lord will hand over Israel, because of the sins of Jeroboam, who has sinned and caused Israel to sin.”
14:17 Ary noho izany, the wife of Jeroboam rose up, and she went away. And she arrived at Tirzah. And as she was entering the threshold of the house, the boy died.
14:18 And they buried him, and all of Israel mourned for him, araka ny tenin 'ny Tompo, which he spoke by the hand of his servant Ahijah, ny mpaminany.
14:19 Now the rest of the words of Jeroboam, the manner in which he fought, and the manner in which he reigned, indro, these were written in the book of the words of the days of the kings of Israel.
14:20 And the days during which Jeroboam reigned were twenty-two years. And he slept with his fathers. And Nadab, zanany, no nanjaka nandimby azy.
14:21 Now Rehoboam, the son of Solomon, reigned in Judah. Rehoboam was forty-one years old when he had begun to reign. And he reigned for seventeen years in Jerusalem, the city that the Lord chose, avy tany rehetra ny firenen'Isiraely, so that he might place his name there. And the name of his mother was Naamah, Amonita.
14:22 And Judah did evil in the sight of the Lord, and they provoked him beyond all that their fathers had done, by their sins that they committed.
14:23 Fa, koa, built for themselves altars, and statues, and sacred groves, upon every high hill and under every leafy tree.
14:24 Koa, the effeminate were in the land, and they committed all the abominations of the peoples that the Lord had destroyed before the face of the sons of Israel.
14:25 Avy eo, in the fifth year of the reign of Rehoboam, Shishak, ny mpanjakan'i Egypta, ascended against Jerusalem.
14:26 And he took away the treasures of the house of the Lord, and the royal treasures, and he plundered everything, including the shields of gold that Solomon had made.
14:27 In place of these, king Rehoboam made shields of brass, and he delivered them into the hand of the commanders of the shield bearers, and of those who were keeping the night watch before the gate of the king’s house.
14:28 And when the king entered into the house of the Lord, these were carried by those who held the office to go before him. ary rehefa afaka izany,, they carried them back to the armory of the shield bearers.
14:29 Now the rest of the words of Rehoboam, and all that he did, indro, these were written in the book of the words of the days of the kings of Judah.
14:30 And there was war between Rehoboam and Jeroboam, during all the days.
14:31 And Rehoboam slept with his fathers, and he was buried with them in the city of David. And his mother’s name was Naamah, Amonita. And his son Abijam reigned in his place.

15:1 Avy eo, in the eighteenth year of the reign of Jeroboam, ny zanak'i Nebata, Abijam reigned over Judah.
15:2 He reigned for three years in Jerusalem. The name of his mother was Maacah, the daughter of Abishalom.
15:3 And he walked in all the sins of his father, which he had done before him. Neither was his heart perfect with the Lord his God, as was the heart of David, ny rainy.
15:4 But for the sake of David, the Lord his God gave to him a lamp in Jerusalem, so that he might raise up his son after him, and so that he might establish Jerusalem.
15:5 For David had done what was right in the eyes of the Lord, and he had not declined from all of the things that he had instructed to him, during all the days of his life, except the matter of Uriah, ny Hetita.
15:6 Now there was war between Rehoboam and Jeroboam during the entire time of his life.
15:7 And the rest of the words of Abijam, and all that he did, were these not written in the book of the words of the days of the kings of Judah? And there was fighting between Abijam and Jeroboam.
15:8 And Abijam slept with his fathers, and they buried him in the city of David. And Asa, zanany, no nanjaka nandimby azy.
15:9 Avy eo, in the twentieth year of Jeroboam, ny mpanjakan'ny Isiraely, Asa reigned as king of Judah.
15:10 And he reigned for forty-one years in Jerusalem. The name of his mother was Maacah, the daughter of Abishalom.
15:11 And Asa did what was right before the sight of the Lord, just as his father David did.
15:12 And he took away the effeminate from the land. And he purged all the filth of the idols, which his fathers had made.
15:13 Koa, he also removed his mother, Maacah, from being the leader in the sacrifices of Priapus, and in his sacred grove which she had consecrated. And he destroyed his grotto. And he shattered the very indecent idol, and he burned it at the torrent Kidron.
15:14 But the high places, he did not take away. Na izany aza tena, the heart of Asa was perfect with the Lord during all his days.
15:15 And he brought the things that his father had sanctified and vowed back to the house of the Lord: ny vola, ary ny volamena, and the vessels.
15:16 Now there was war between Asa and Baasha, ny mpanjakan'ny Isiraely, during all their days.
15:17 And Baasha, ny mpanjakan'ny Isiraely, ascended against Judah. And he built up Ramah, so that no one would be able to exit or enter from the side of Asa, ny mpanjakan'ny Joda,.
15:18 Ary noho izany, Asa took all the silver and the gold which had remained in the treasuries of the house of the Lord, and in the treasuries of the house of the king, and he gave it into the hands of his servants. And he sent them to Benhadad, the son of Tabrimmon, the son of Hezion, ny mpanjakan'i Syria, who was living in Damascus, nanao hoe::
15:19 “There is a pact between me and you, and between my father and your father. Izany no antony, I have sent to you gifts of silver and of gold. And I ask you to go and break your pact with Baasha, ny mpanjakan'ny Isiraely, so that he may withdraw from me.”
15:20 Benhadad, acquiescing to king Asa, sent the leaders of his army against the cities of Israel. And they struck Ijon, and Dan, and Abel, the house of Maacah, and all of Chinneroth, izany hoe, all the land of Naphtali.
15:21 And when Baasha had heard this, he ceased from fortifying Ramah, and he returned to Tirzah.
15:22 Then king Asa sent an announcement to all of Judah, nanao hoe:, “Let no one be excused.” And they took away the stones from Ramah, and its timber, with which Baasha had fortified it. And from these things, king Asa built up Geba of Benjamin and Mizpah.
15:23 Now all the rest of the words of Asa, and his entire strength, and all that he did, and the cities that he built, were these not written in the book of the words of the days of the kings of Judah? Na izany aza tena, in the time of his old age, he was afflicted in his feet.
15:24 And he slept with his fathers, and he was buried with them in the city of David, ny rainy. ary Josafata, zanany, no nanjaka nandimby azy.
15:25 Na izany aza tena, Nadaba, the son of Jeroboam, reigned over Israel, in the second year of Asa, ny mpanjakan'ny Joda,. And he reigned over Israel for two years.
15:26 And he did what is evil in the sight of the Lord. And he walked in the ways of his father and in his sins, by which he caused Israel to sin.
15:27 Then Baasha, ny zanak'i Ahia, from the house of Issachar, set an ambush against him, and he struck him down at Gibbethon, which is a city of the Philistines. Fa tokoa, Nadab and all of Israel were laying siege to Gibbethon.
15:28 And so Baasha killed him in the third year of Asa, ny mpanjakan'ny Joda,, and he reigned in his place.
15:29 And when he had reigned, he struck down the entire house of Jeroboam. He did not leave behind even one soul from his offspring, until he had wiped him away, araka ny tenin 'ny Tompo, which he had spoken by the hand of Ahijah, the Shilonite,
15:30 because of the sin of Jeroboam, which he had committed, and by which he had caused Israel to sin, and because of the offense by which he had provoked the Lord, ny Andriamanitry ny Isiraely,.
15:31 But the rest of the words of Nadab, and all that he did, were these not written in the book of the words of the days of the kings of Israel?
15:32 And there was war between Asa and Baasha, ny mpanjakan'ny Isiraely, during all their days.
15:33 In the third year of Asa, ny mpanjakan'ny Joda,, Baasha, ny zanak'i Ahia, nanjaka tamin'ny Isiraely rehetra, at Tirzah, for twenty-four years.
15:34 And he did evil in the sight of the Lord. And he walked in the ways of Jeroboam, and in his sins, by which he caused Israel to sin.

1 Mpanjaka 16

16:1 Then the word of the Lord came to Jehu, the son of Hanani, against Baasha, nanao hoe::
16:2 “Even though I exalted you from the dust, and I set you as ruler over my people Israel, still you have walked in the way of Jeroboam, and you have caused my people Israel to sin, so that you have provoked me by their sins.
16:3 Indro, I will cut down the posterity of Baasha, and the posterity of his house. And I will make your house like the house of Jeroboam, ny zanak'i Nebata.
16:4 Whoever will have died of Baasha in the city, ny alika handevona azy. And whoever will have died of him in the countryside, the birds of the air will consume him.”
16:5 Now the rest of the words of Baasha, and whatever he did, and his battles, were these not written in the book of the words of the days of the kings of Israel?
16:6 Then Baasha slept with his fathers, and he was buried at Tirzah. And Elah, zanany, no nanjaka nandimby azy.
16:7 And when the word of the Lord had arrived by the hand of the prophet Jehu, the son of Hanani, against Baasha, and against his house, and against every evil that he had done before the Lord, so that he provoked him by the works of his hands, so that he became like the house of Jeroboam: izany no antony, dia namono azy, izany hoe, the prophet Jehu, the son of Hanani.
16:8 In the twenty-sixth year of Asa, ny mpanjakan'ny Joda,, Elah, the son of Baasha, reigned over Israel, at Tirzah, for two years.
16:9 And his servant Zimri, the commander of one half part the horsemen, rebelled against him. Now Elah was drinking at Tirzah, and he became inebriated in the house of Arza, the prefect of Tirzah.
16:10 Then Zimri, rushing in, struck him and killed him, in the twenty-seventh year of Asa, ny mpanjakan'ny Joda,. Ary izy no nanjaka nandimby azy.
16:11 And when he had reigned and had sat upon his throne, he struck down the entire house of Baasha. And he did not leave behind of them anything that urinates against a wall, among both close relatives and his friends.
16:12 Ary noho izany, Zimri destroyed the entire house of Baasha, araka ny tenin 'ny Tompo, which he had spoken to Baasha, by the hand the prophet of Jehu,
16:13 because of all the sins of Baasha, and the sins of Elah, zanany, who sinned and caused Israel to sin, provoking the Lord, ny Andriamanitry ny Isiraely,, with their vanities.
16:14 But the rest of the words of Elah, and all that he did, were these not written in the book of the words of the days of the kings of Israel?
16:15 In the twenty-seventh year of Asa, ny mpanjakan'ny Joda,, Zimri reigned for seven days in Tirzah. For the army was besieging Gibbethon, a city of the Philistines.
16:16 And when they had heard that Zimri had rebelled, and that he had killed the king, all of Israel made Omri as a king for themselves; he was the leader of the military over Israel in the encampment in that day.
16:17 Noho izany, Omri ascended, and all of Israel with him, from Gibbethon, and they besieged Tirzah.
16:18 Then Zimri, seeing that the city was about to be taken, entered the palace, and he set fire to himself along with the royal house. Dia maty izy
16:19 in his sins, which he had sinned, doing evil before the Lord, and walking in the way of Jeroboam, and in his sin, by which he caused Israel to sin.
16:20 But the rest of the words of Zimri, and of his treachery and tyranny, were these not written in the book of the words of the days of the kings of Israel?
16:21 Then the people of Israel were divided into two parts: one half part of the people followed Tibni, the son of Ginath, having appointed him as king, and one half part followed Omri.
16:22 But the people who were with Omri prevailed over the people who were following Tibni, the son of Ginath. And Tibni died, and Omri reigned.
16:23 In the thirty-first year of Asa, ny mpanjakan'ny Joda,, Omri reigned over Israel for twelve years; he reigned for six years at Tirzah.
16:24 And he bought the mount of Samaria from Shemer for two talents of silver. And he built upon it, and he called the name of the city that he had built, Samaria, after the name of Shemer, the owner of the mount.
16:25 But Omri did evil in the sight of the Lord, and he wrought wickedness, beyond all who had been before him.
16:26 And he walked in all the ways of Jeroboam, ny zanak'i Nebata, and in his sins, by which he had caused Israel to sin, so that he provoked the Lord, ny Andriamanitry ny Isiraely,, by their vanities.
16:27 Now the rest of the words of Omri, and his battles that he carried out, were these not written in the book of the words of the days of the kings of Israel?
16:28 And Omri slept with his fathers, and he was buried in Samaria. And Ahab, zanany, no nanjaka nandimby azy.
16:29 Marina tokoa, Ahab, ny zanak'i Omry,, reigned over Israel in the thirty-eighth year of Asa, ny mpanjakan'ny Joda,. And Ahab, ny zanak'i Omry,, reigned over Israel at Samaria for twenty-two years.
16:30 And Ahab, ny zanak'i Omry,, did evil in the sight of the Lord, beyond all who had been before him.
16:31 And it was not enough for him to walk in the sins of Jeroboam, ny zanak'i Nebata. Ankoatry ny, he took as a wife Jezebel, the daughter of Eth-baal, the king of the Sidonians. And he went astray, and he served Baal, and adored him.
16:32 And he set up an altar for Baal, in the temple of Baal, which he had built at Samaria.
16:33 And he planted a sacred grove. And Ahab added to his works, provoking the Lord, ny Andriamanitry ny Isiraely,, beyond all the kings of Israel who had been before him.
16:34 Tamin'ny andron'i, Hiel from Bethel built up Jericho. With Abiram, ny lahimatoa, he founded it, and with Segub, his youngest son, he set up its gates, araka ny tenin 'ny Tompo, which he had spoken by the hand of Joshua, ny zanak'i Nona.

1 Mpanjaka 17

17:1 Ary Elia Tisbita, avy tany Gileada, hoy izy tamin'i Ahaba, "Raha velona koa Jehovah, ny Andriamanitry ny Isiraely,, izay nahita ny mijoro, tsy hisy ando na orana mandritra ny taona maro, raha tsy amin'ny teny aloaky ny vavako. "
17:2 Ary ny tenin'i Jehovah tonga tao aminy, nanao hoe::
17:3 "Esory eto, ka mandehana mianatsimo atsinanana, ka afeno ao amin'ny lohasahan-driaka Kerita, izay tandrifin'ny Jordana.
17:4 Ary any no hisotro avy any amin'ny lohasahan-driaka. Ary efa nampianatra ny goaika mba hamelona anao any. "
17:5 Noho izany, dia nandeha izy ka nanao araka ny tenin 'ny Tompo. Ary lasa, dia nonina tamin'ny renirano Kerita, izay tandrifin'ny Jordana.
17:6 Ary ny goaika nitondra mofo sy hena ho azy raha maraina, ary toy izany koa mofo sy hena isan-kariva. Ary nisotro avy any amin'ny lohasahan-driaka.
17:7 Fa rehefa afaka andro vitsivitsy, ny lohasahan-driaka maina. Fa tsy mbola nandatsaka eto an-tany.
17:8 Ary ny tenin'i Jehovah tonga tao aminy, nanao hoe::
17:9 "Mitsangàna, ka mandehana any Zarefata ny Sidoniana, ka mitoetra ao. Fa efa nampianatra vehivavy iray maty vady any hiandry anao. "
17:10 Dia niainga ka lasa nandeha ho any Zarefata. Ary rehefa tonga teo amin'ny vavahadin'ny tanàna, nahita ny maty vady ny vehivavy manangona hazo, ary niantso azy. Ary hoy Jesosy taminy:, "Omeo ahy rano kely amin'ny fisotroana, mba aho mba hosotroiko. "
17:11 Ary raha nandeha izy mba hitondra azy, dia niantso nanaraka azy, nanao hoe:, "Itondray koa, Miangavy anao aho, sombin-kanina kely eny an-tananao. "
17:12 Ary izy namaly: "Raha Jehovah Andriamanitrao velona, Tsy manana mofo aho, afa-tsy lafarinina eran-tanan'ila ao anaty siny, sy diloilo kely foana ao amin'ny siny hoditra. Jereo, Aho nanangona kitay hazo roa, ka mba hiditra ka manao azy ho an'ny tenako sy zanako, ka mba hihinana azy sy ho faty. "
17:13 Ary hoy Elia taminy: "Aza matahotra. Fa mandehana ary ataovy araka izay nolazainao. Na izany aza tena, aloha, ataovy ho ahy, avy amin'ny iray ihany toto, kely ny mofo mofo ambany lavenona, ary ento atỳ amiko. Ary rehefa afaka izany,, manao ny sasany ho an'ny tenanao sy ho an'ny zanakao.
17:14 Fa izao no lazain'i Jehovah, ny Andriamanitry ny Isiraely,: 'Ny tavoara fitondran-koba tsara toto ho azy fa hahomby, na ny tavoahangy ny menaka ho vitsy foana,, mandra-pahatongan'ny andro ny Tompo dia hanome ranonorana eto ambonin 'ny tany.' "
17:15 Ary Maria nandeha ka nanao araka ny tenin'i Elia. Ary nihinana, ary izy sy ny ankohonany nihinana. Ary hatramin'izany andro izany,
17:16 ny tavoara fitondran-lafarinina tsy ho levona, ary ny siny hoditra ny menaka tsy nihena, araka ny tenin 'ny Tompo, izay efa nolazain 'ny tanan' i Elia.
17:17 Ary nitranga fa, Rehefa afaka izany,, the son of the woman who was the mother of the family became ill. And the sickness was very powerful, so that no breath remained in him.
17:18 Noho izany, she said to Elijah: "Inona moa no vavolombelona amiko sy aminao, Ry lehilahin'Andriamanitra ô? Have you entered to me, so that my iniquities would be remembered, and so that you would put to death my son?"
17:11 Ary hoy Elia taminy, “Give your son to me.” And he took him from her bosom, and he carried him to an upper room, where he himself was staying. And he placed him on his own bed.
17:20 Dia nitaraina tamin'i Jehovah, ka hoy Izy:, "Tompo ô, Andriamanitra ô, have you even afflicted the widow by whom I am, Azo lazaina, sustained, so that you would put to death her son?"
17:21 And he stretched himself out beside the boy three times. And he cried out to the Lord and said, "Tompo ô, Andriamanitra ô, let the soul of this boy, Miangavy anao aho, return to his body.”
17:22 And the Lord heeded the voice of Elijah. And the soul of the boy returned to him, and he revived.
17:23 And Elijah took the boy, and he brought him down from the upper room to the lower part of the house. Ary dia natolony tamin-dreniny. Ary hoy Jesosy taminy:, "Jereo, your son lives.”
17:24 And the woman said to Elijah: “By this, I now realize that you are a man of God, and that the word of the Lord in your mouth is true.”

1 Mpanjaka 18

18:1 Rehefa ela, the word of the Lord came to Elijah, in the third year, nanao hoe:, “Go and show yourself to Ahab, so that I may grant rain upon the face of the earth.”
18:2 Noho izany, Elijah went to show himself to Ahab. For there was a severe famine in Samaria.
18:3 And Ahab called Obadiah, the manager of his household. Now Obadiah feared the Lord greatly.
18:4 For when Jezebel was killing the prophets of the Lord, he took one hundred prophets, and concealed them, fifty and fifty, in caves. And he fed them with bread and water.
18:5 Then Ahab said to Obadiah, “Go into the land, to all fountains of water, and to all the valleys, for perhaps we will be able to find plants, and save the horses and mules, so that the beasts of burden may not perish entirely.”
18:6 And they divided the regions among themselves, so that they might travel through them. Ahab went one way alone, and Obadiah went another way by himself.
18:7 And while Obadiah was on the way, Elijah met him. And when he had recognized him, dia niankohoka, ka hoy Izy:, “Are you not my lord Elijah?"
18:8 Ary izy namaly azy: "Izaho dia. Go and tell your lord that Elijah is here.”
18:9 Ary hoy izy:: “How have I sinned that you would deliver me, mpanomponao, into the hand of Ahab, so that he would put me to death?
18:10 As the Lord your God lives, there is no nation or kingdom to which my lord has not sent, seeking you. And when all responded, ‘He is not here,’ he swore each kingdom and nation to an oath, because you were not found at all.
18:11 Ary ankehitriny, you say to me, ‘Go and tell your lord that Elijah is here.’
18:12 And when I will have departed from you, the Spirit of the Lord will transport you to a place that I do not know. ary raha niditra, I will report to Ahab. ary, not finding you, will put me to death. Yet your servant has feared the Lord from his infancy.
18:13 Has it not been revealed to you, tompoko, what I did when Jezebel was killing the prophets of the Lord: how I hid one hundred men from the prophets of the Lord, fifty and fifty, in caves, and how I fed them with bread and water?
18:14 And now you say: ‘Go and tell your lord that Elijah is here,’ so that he may kill me!"
18:15 And Elijah said, “As the Lord of hosts lives, before whose face I stand, this day I will appear to him.”
18:16 Noho izany, Obadiah went away to meet Ahab, and he reported to him. And Ahab went to meet Elijah.
18:17 Ary nony nahita azy, hoy izy:, “Are you the one who is disturbing Israel?"
18:18 Ary hoy izy:: “I have not troubled Israel. But it is you, and the house of your father, who have abandoned the commandments of the Lord, and have followed the Baals.
18:19 Kanefa tena ankehitriny, send and gather to me all of Israel, on Mount Carmel, with the four hundred and fifty prophets of Baal, and the four hundred prophets of the sacred groves, who eat from the table of Jezebel.”
18:20 Ahab sent to all the sons of Israel, and he gathered together the prophets on mount Carmel.
18:21 Then Elijah, drawing near to all the people, nanao hoe:: “How long will you waver between two sides? If the Lord is God, dia manaraha azy. But if Baal is, then follow him.” And the people did not respond a word to him.
18:22 And Elijah said again to the people: “I alone remain as a prophet of the Lord. But the prophets of Baal are four hundred and fifty men.
18:23 Let two oxen be given to us. And let them choose one ox for themselves, ary, cutting it into pieces, let them set it on the wood. But they may not place fire under it. And I will prepare the other ox, and set it on the wood. But I will not place fire under it.
18:24 Call upon the names of your gods. And I will call on the name of my Lord. And the God who will have heeded with fire, let him be God.” And in response, all the people said, “Excellent proposition.”
18:25 Then Elijah said to the prophets of Baal: “Choose for yourselves one ox, and prepare it first. For you are many. And call on the names of your gods, but do not place fire under it.”
18:26 And when they had taken an ox, which he had given to them, they prepared it. And they called on the name of Baal, hatramin'ny maraina ka mandra-pitataovovonan'ny andro, nanao hoe:, “O Baal, heed us.” And there was no voice, nor did anyone respond. And so they leaped upon the altar that they had made.
18:27 And when it was now midday, Elijah ridiculed them, nanao hoe:: “Cry out with a louder voice. For he is a god, and perhaps he is talking, or at an inn, or on a journey, or certainly he may be asleep, and must be awakened.”
18:28 Then they cried out with a loud voice, and they cut themselves, in accord with their ritual, with knives and lancets, until they were entirely covered in blood.
18:29 Avy eo, after midday had passed, and they were prophesying, the time had arrived when the sacrifice is usually offered. And there was no voice heard, neither did anyone heed or respond to the praying.
18:30 Elijah said to all the people, “Draw near to me.” And as the people were drawing near to him, he repaired the altar of the Lord, which had been torn down.
18:31 And he took twelve stones, in accord with the number of the tribes of the sons of Jacob, to whom the word of the Lord came, nanao hoe:, “Israel shall be your name.”
18:32 And he built from the stones an altar to the name of the Lord. And he made a trench for water, like two furrows of plowed land, all around the altar.
18:33 And he arranged the wood, and he cut the ox into pieces, and he placed it on the wood.
18:34 Ary hoy izy:, “Fill four containers with water, and pour it over the holocaust, and over the wood.” And again, hoy izy:, “Do this a second time.” And when they had done it a second time, hoy izy:, “Do it also a third time.” And they did so a third time.
18:35 And the water was running down around the altar, and the pit of the trench was filled with water.
18:36 And when it was now time for the holocaust to be offered, the prophet Elijah, manakaiky, nanao hoe:: "Tompo ô, God of Abraham, ary Isaka, ary ny Isiraely, reveal this day that you are the God of Israel, and that I am your servant, and that I have acted, in all these things, in accord with your precept.
18:37 Heed me, Tompo O, heed me, so that this people may learn that you are the Lord God, and that you have converted their heart again.”
18:38 Then the fire of the Lord fell down and devoured the holocaust, and the wood, and the stones, and even the dust, and it absorbed the water that was in the trench.
18:39 And when all the people had seen it, they fell upon their face, ka hoy izy:: “The Lord himself is God! The Lord himself is God!"
18:40 And Elijah said to them, “Apprehend the prophets of Baal, and do not let even one of them escape.” And when they had apprehended them, Elijah led them down to the torrent Kishon, and he put them to death there.
18:41 Ary hoy Elia tamin'i Ahaba: "miakatra; mihinana sy misotro. Fa misy ny feon'ny be dia be ny ranonorana. "
18:42 Ahaba niakatra, ka dia mba mihinana sy misotro. Fa Elia niakatra tany an-tampon'i Karmela, ary nandohalika tamin'ny tany, dia napetrany nataony teo anelanelan'ny lohaliny.
18:43 Ary hoy izy tamin'ny zatovony, "miakatra, ary mandinika dia mivoaka hankany amin'ny ranomasina. "Ary rehefa niakatra tany, ary efa nandinika, hoy izy:, "Tsy misy na inona na inona." Ary koa, hoy izy taminy:, "Miverena any fe-potoana fito."
18:44 Ary tamin'ny fanimpitony, indro, rahona kely niakatra avy tamin'ny ranomasina tahaka ny footstep ny olona. Ary hoy izy:: "miakatra, ka lazao amin'i Ahaba, 'Zioga ho entinareo ny kalesy, ary midina; raha tsy izany, ny orana dia mety hisakana anareo. ' "
18:45 Ary raha izy nitodika ny tenany izany sy izany, indro, dia maizina ny lanitra, ary nisy rahona sy ny rivotra, ary nisy oram-baratra lehibe nitranga. Ary toy izany Ahaba, miakatra, lasa nankany Jezirela.
18:46 Ary ny tànan'i Jehovah dia tao amin'i Elia. Ary cinching ny andilany, dia nihazakazaka teo alohan i Ahaba, mandra-tonga tany Jezirela.

1 Mpanjaka 19

19:1 Then Ahab reported to Jezebel all that Elijah had done, and how he had killed all the prophets with the sword.
19:2 And so Jezebel sent a messenger to Elijah, nanao hoe:, “May the gods to these things, and may they add these other things, if by this hour tomorrow I will not have made your life like the life of one of them.”
19:3 Noho izany, Elijah was afraid. Ary nitsangana, he went away to wherever his will would carry him. And he arrived in Beersheba of Judah. And he dismissed his servant there.
19:4 And he continued on, any an-efitra, for one day’s journey. Ary rehefa tonga, and was sitting under a juniper tree, he requested for his soul that he might die. Ary hoy izy:: "Fa ampy ahy, Tompo O. Take my soul. For I am no better than my fathers.”
19:5 And he stretched himself out, and he slept deeply in the shadow of the juniper tree. Ary indro, an Angel of the Lord touched him, ka nanao taminy hoe:, “Rise up and eat.”
19:6 He looked, ary indro, at his head was bread baked under ashes, and a container of water. Then he ate and drank, and again he slept deeply.
19:7 And the Angel of the Lord returned a second time, and touched him, ka nanao taminy hoe:: "Mitsangàna, mihinana. For a great journey again stands before you.”
19:8 And he when he had risen up, he ate and drank. And he walked by the strength of that food for forty days and forty nights, as far as the mountain of God, Horeba.
19:9 Ary rehefa tonga tany, he stayed in a cave. Ary indro, the word of the Lord came to him, ka nanao taminy hoe:, “What are you doing here, Elia?"
19:10 Dia namaly: “I have been very zealous on behalf of the Lord, ny Andriamanitry ny maro. For the sons of Israel have forsaken your covenant. They have torn down your altars. They have killed your prophets with the sword. I alone remain. And they are seeking my life, so that they may take it away.”
19:11 Ary hoy izy taminy:, “Go out and stand on the mount before the Lord.” And behold, the Lord passed by. And there was a great and strong wind, tearing apart the mountains, and crushing the rocks before the Lord. But the Lord was not in the wind. And after the wind, there was an earthquake. But the Lord was not in the earthquake.
19:12 And after the earthquake, there was a fire. But the Lord was not in the fire. And after the fire, there was the whisper of a gentle breeze.
19:13 And when Elijah had heard it, he covered his face with his cloak, and going out, he stood at the entrance of the cave. Ary indro, there was a voice to him, nanao hoe:: “What are you doing here, Elia?"Dia namaly:
19:14 “I have been very zealous on behalf of the Lord, ny Andriamanitry ny maro. For the sons of Israel have forsaken your covenant. They have torn down your altars. They have killed your prophets with the sword. I alone remain. And they are seeking my life, so that they may take it away.”
19:15 Ary hoy Jehovah taminy: "Mandehana, and return on your way, through the desert, to Damascus. And when you have arrived there, you shall anoint Hazael as king over Syria.
19:16 And you shall anoint Jehu, the son of Nimshi, as king over Israel. But Elisha, ny zanak'i Safata, who is from Abelmeholah, you shall anoint to be a prophet in your place.
19:17 Ary izao no ho: whoever will have escaped from the sword of Hazael, will be slain by Jehu. And whoever will have escaped from the sword of Jehu, will be put to death by Elisha.
19:18 And I will leave for myself seven thousand men in Israel, whose knees have not been bent before Baal, and every mouth that has not adored him, kissing hands.”
19:19 Noho izany, Elia, fametrahana nivoaka avy teo, nahita an'i Elisa, ny zanak'i Safata, niasa tamin'ny roa ambin'ny folo omby folo. Ary izy dia iray tamin'ireo ireo izay niasa tamin'ny roa ambin'ny folo lahy omby roa mikambana. Ary nony efa lasa nandeha i Elia taminy, dia nanipy ny kapôtiny hanarona ny azy.
19:20 Ary niaraka tamin'izay dia, namela ny omby, dia nihazakazaka nanaraka an'i Elia. Ary hoy izy:, "Miangavy anao aho mba hamela ahy hanoroka ny raiko sy ny reniko, ary avy eo dia hanaraka anao aho. "Ary hoy izy taminy:: "Mandehana, ary hiverina. Fa izay Ahy ny hanao, Efa nanao momba anao. "
19:21 Avy eo, niverina avy aminy, dia naka ny omby roa, ary izy namono azy ireo. Ary nahandro ny nofony mbamin'ny angadin'omby ny omby. Dia nomeny ho an'ny olona, ary dia nihinana. Ary nitsangana, dia nandeha izy ka nanaraka an'i Elia, dia nanompo azy.

1 Mpanjaka 20

20:1 Then Benhadad, ny mpanjakan'i Syria, gathered together his entire army. And there were thirty-two kings with him, with horses and chariots. And ascending, he fought against Samaria, and he besieged it.
20:2 And sending messengers into the city, to Ahab, ny mpanjakan'ny Isiraely,
20:3 hoy izy:: “Thus says Benhadad: Your silver and your gold is mine. And your wives and your best sons are mine.”
20:4 And the king of Israel responded, “In agreement with your word, ny mpanjaka tompoko, I am yours, with all that is mine.”
20:5 And the messengers, niverina, nanao hoe:: “Thus says Benhadad, who sent us to you: Your silver and your gold, and your wives and your sons, you shall give to me.
20:6 Noho izany, rahampitso, amin'izao ora izany, I will send my servants to you, and they will search your house and the houses of your servants. And all that pleases them, they will put in their hands and take away.”
20:7 Then the king of Israel called all the elders of the land, ka hoy Izy:: “Let your souls take heed, and see that he commits treachery against us. For he sent to me for my wives and sons, and for silver and gold. And I did not refuse.”
20:8 And all those greater by birth, with all the people, hoy izy taminy:, “You should neither listen, nor acquiesce to him.”
20:9 Ary noho izany, he responded to the messengers of Benhadad: “Tell my lord the king: Everything about which you sent to me in the beginning, I your servant will do. But this thing, I am not able to do.”
20:10 Ary niverina, the messengers took this to him, and he sent again and said, “May the gods do these things to me, and may they add these other things, if the dust of Samaria is enough to fill the hands of all the people who follow me.”
20:11 Sy ny fandraisana andraikitra, the king of Israel said, “Tell him that one who is girded should not boast the same as one who is ungirded.”
20:12 Avy eo dia nitranga fa, when Benhadad had heard this word, he and the kings were drinking in a pavilion. Ary hoy izy tamin'ny mpanompony, “Encircle the city.” And they encircled it.
20:13 Ary indro, one prophet, drawing near to Ahab, ny mpanjakan'ny Isiraely, hoy izy taminy:: "Izao no lazain'i Jehovah: tokoa, you have seen this entire exceedingly great multitude? Indro, I will deliver them into your hand today, so that you may know that I am the Lord.”
20:14 And Ahab said, “By whom?"Ary hoy izy taminy:: "Izao no lazain'i Jehovah: By the footmen of the leaders of the provinces.” And he said, “Who should begin to do battle?"Ary hoy izy:, “You should.”
20:15 Noho izany, he took a count of the servants of the leaders of the provinces. And he found the number to be two hundred thirty-two. And he set them in order after the people, all the sons of Israel, who were seven thousand.
20:16 And they went out at midday. But Benhadad was drinking; he was inebriated in his pavilion, and the thirty-two kings with him, who had arrived in order to assist him.
20:17 Then the servants of the leaders of the provinces went out to the first place, at the front. Ary noho izany, Benhadad sent, and they reported to him, nanao hoe:: “Men have gone out from Samaria.”
20:18 Ary hoy izy:: “If they have arrived for peace, apprehend them alive; if to do battle, capture them alive.”
20:19 Noho izany, the servants of the leaders of the provinces went out, and the remainder of the army was following.
20:20 And each one struck down the man who came against him. And the Syrians fled, and Israel pursued them. koa, Benhadad, ny mpanjakan'i Syria, fled on a horse, with his horsemen.
20:21 But the king of Israel, mandeha mivoaka, struck the horses and the chariots, and he struck the Syrians with a great slaughter.
20:22 Then a prophet, drawing near to the king of Israel, hoy izy taminy:: “Go and be strengthened. And know and see what you are doing. For in the following year, the king of Syria will rise up against you.”
20:23 Ary tena, the servants of the king of Syria said to him: “Their gods are the gods of the mountains; noho io, they have overwhelmed us. But it is better that we fight against them in the plains, and then we will prevail over them.
20:24 Noho izany, you should do this word: Remove each of the kings from your army, and set commanders in their place.
20:25 And replace the number of soldiers who have been cut down of yours, and the horses, in accord with the earlier number of horses, and the chariots, in accord with the number of chariots that you had before. And we will fight against them in the plains, and you will see that we will prevail over them.” And he trusted in their counsel, and he did so.
20:26 Noho izany, after the passing of the year, Benhadad took a count of the Syrians, and he ascended to Aphek, so that he might fight against Israel.
20:27 Then the sons of Israel were numbered, and taking provisions, they set out to the opposite side. And they stretched out the camp facing them, like two little flocks of goats. But the Syrians filled the land.
20:28 And one man of God, manakaiky, said to the king of Israel: "Izao no lazain'i Jehovah: Because the Syrians have said, ‘The Lord is the God of the mountains, but he is not the God of the valleys,’ I will deliver this entire great multitude into your hand, and you shall know that I am the Lord.”
20:29 And for seven days, both sides arranged each of their battle lines. Avy eo, amin'ny andro fahafito, the war was undertaken. And the sons of Israel struck down, from the Syrians, one hundred thousand foot soldiers in one day.
20:30 Then those who had remained fled to Aphek, into the city. And the wall fell upon twenty-seven thousand men of those who had remained. Then Benhadad, nandositra, entered the city, into a room that was inside another room.
20:31 And his servants said to him: "Indro, we have heard that the kings of the house of Israel show clemency. Ary noho izany, let us put sackcloth around our waists, and ropes on our heads, and let us go out to the king of Israel. Perhaps he will save our lives.”
20:32 So they wrapped sackcloth around their waists, and they placed ropes on their heads. And they went to the king of Israel, ka hoy ireo taminy:: "Ny mpanomponao, Benhadad, hoy i: ‘I beg you to let my soul live.’ ” And he replied, “If he is still alive, he is my brother.”
20:33 The men accepted this as a good sign. And hastily, they took up the word from his mouth, ka hoy izy:, “Benhadad is your brother.” And he said to them, "Mandehana, and bring him to me.” Therefore, Benhadad went out to him, and he lifted him onto his chariot.
20:34 Ary hoy izy taminy:: “The cities that my father took from your father, Hody. And you may make streets for yourself in Damascus, just as my father made in Samaria. And after we have made a pact, I will withdraw from you.” Therefore, he formed a pact with him, and he released him.
20:35 Then a certain man from the sons of the prophets said to his associate, by the word of the Lord, “Strike me.” But he was not willing to strike.
20:36 Ary hoy izy taminy:: “Because you were not willing to heed the voice of the Lord, indro, you will depart from me, and a lion will slay you. And when he had departed a short distance from him, a lion found him, and slew him.
20:37 But upon finding another man, hoy izy taminy:, “Strike me.” And he struck him, and wounded him.
20:38 Then the prophet departed. And he met the king along the way, and he changed his appearance by sprinkling dust around his mouth and eyes.
20:39 And when the king had passed by, he cried out to the king, ka hoy Izy:: “Your servant went out to do battle in close quarters. And when one man had fled, a certain person brought him to me, ka hoy Izy:: ‘Guard this man. For if he slips away, your life will take the place of his life, or you will weigh out one talent of silver.’
20:40 And while I was distracted, turning one way and another, tampoka, he was not to be seen.” And the king of Israel said to him, “This is your judgment, that which you yourself have decreed.”
20:41 Then immediately, he wiped away the dust from his face, and the king of Israel recognized him, that he was one of the prophets.
20:42 Ary hoy izy taminy:: "Izao no lazain'i Jehovah: Because you have released from your hand a man worthy of death, your life will take the place of his life, and your people will take the place of his people.”
20:43 And so the king of Israel returned to his house, unwilling to listen, and a fury entered into Samaria.

1 Mpanjaka 21

21:1 Ary rehefa afaka izany,, amin'izany andro, nisy tanim-boalobok'i Nabota, Jezirelita, izay tao Jezirela, afa-tsy ny lapan'i Ahaba,, ny mpanjakan'i Samaria.
21:2 Noho izany, Ahaba niteny tamin'i Nabota, nanao hoe:: "Omeo ahy ny tanim-boaloboka, ka Mba hanolorako ny tenako ny fambolen'anana. Fa teo akaiky teo, ary eo anilan'i an-tranoko. Ary homeko ho anao, nandimby azy, tanim-boaloboka tsara. Na raha mihevitra azy io ho mety aminao kokoa, Izaho no hanome anareo ny vola, tsy hanenenana na inona na inona. "
21:3 Nabota namaly azy, "Enga anie ny Tompo mamindrà fo amiko, fandrao omeko anao ny tanin-drazako. "
21:4 Ary Ahaba nankao an-tranony, tezitra sy ny fikitroha-nify eo ny teny izay Nabota, Jezirelita, efa nolazainy taminy, nanao hoe:, "Tsy homeko anao ny tanin-drazako." Sady namoaka ny tenany teo am-pandriany, izy nampihodina ny tavany nankany amin'ny rindrina, ary tsy nety nihinan-kanina.
21:5 Ary Jezebela, ny vadiny, niditra taminy, ka nanao taminy hoe:: "Inona no zavatra izany, izay ny fanahinao efa malahelo? Ary nahoana no tsy mihinan-kanina?"
21:6 Ary izy namaly azy: "Tsy niteny tamin'i Nabota, Jezirelita, ary hoy izy taminy: 'Omeo ahy ny tanim-boaloboka, ary manaiky vola. Na Raha sitraky anao, Dia homeko anao ny tanim-boaloboka tsara kokoa, nandimby azy. 'Ary hoy izy:, 'Tsy homeko anao ny tanimboaloboko.' "
21:7 Ary Jezebela, ny vadiny, hoy izy taminy:: "Ianareo ny fahefana lehibe, ary Hianao no manjaka tsara ao amin'ny fanjakan'ny Israely. Mitsangàna, ka nihinan-kanina, ka na dia tezitra. Dia homeko ny tanim-boalobok'i Nabota, Jezirelita, ho anao."
21:8 Ary noho izany, Jezebela dia nanoratra taratasy tamin'ny anaran'i Ahaba,, ary izy ireo nanisy tombo-kase tamin'ny peratra fanombohany. Ary dia naniraka tamin'izay lehibe no firazanany, ary ny manan-kaja tao an-tanàna sy miaina miaraka amin'ny Nabota.
21:9 Ary izao no fitsarana ny taratasy: "Miantsoa andro fifadian-kanina, ka hahatonga Nabota mba hipetraka any amin'ny voalohany mpanapaka ny vahoaka.
21:10 Ary naniraka roa lahy, ny tena ratsy fanahy, azy. Ary aoka izy ireo hitory ny vavolombelona mandainga: 'Efa niteny ratsy an'Andriamanitra sy ny mpanjaka. "Ary avy eo dia ento, fa aza, ka torahy vato, dia aoka izy ho faty. "
21:11 Ary hoy ny mpiray olom-pirenena, izay lehibe amin'ny alalan'ny niteraka ary ny manan-kaja izay nonina niaraka taminy tao an-tanàna, nanao araka izay efa nampianatra azy ireo hoe Jezebela, ary araka ilay voasoratra ao amin'ny taratasy izay efa nalefa tany aminy.
21:12 Dia niantso andro fifadian-kanina, Ary nampandeha Nabota mba hipetraka any amin'ny voalohany mpanapaka ny vahoaka.
21:13 Ary nandroso nitondra lehilahy roa, zanaky ny devoly, dia nahatonga azy ireo hipetraka tandrifiny. ary izy ireo, manao tokoa ny olona toy ny devoly, vavolombelona niteny azy teo imason'ny olona maro: "Efa niteny ratsy an'Andriamanitra ny Nabota sy ny mpanjaka." Noho izany,, dia nitondra an'i Jesosy ho, any an-dafin'ny tanàna, ary namono azy ho faty amin'ny alalan'ny fitoraham-bato.
21:14 Dia naniraka tany amin'i Jezebela, nanao hoe:, "Efa notoraham-bato Nabota, ka dia maty. "
21:15 Avy eo dia nitranga fa, Jezebela efa reny fa voatora-bato Nabota ka maty, dia hoy izy tamin'i Ahaba: "Mitsangàna, ka alao ho anao ny tanim-boalobok'i Nabota, Jezirelita, izay tsy vonona ny sitrapon'Andriamanitra ianao, ary ny hanome izany anao ho takalon'ny vola. Fa tsy velona intsony Nabota fa, fa efa maty. "
21:16 Ary rehefa nandre izany Ahaba, izany hoe, fa efa maty Nabota, dia niainga izy ka nidina tany amin'ny tanimboalobok'i Nabota, Jezirelita, ka dia izy mba haka ny tany ho azy.
21:17 Ary ny tenin'i Jehovah tonga tamin'i Elia, Tisbita, nanao hoe::
21:18 "Mitsangàna, ka midina hihaona amin'i Ahaba,, ny mpanjakan'ny Isiraely, izay any Samaria. Indro, dia nidina ho any amin'ny tanim-boalobok'i Nabota, ka mba haka ny tany ho azy.
21:19 Ary ianao dia hiteny aminy, nanao hoe:: 'Izao no lazain'i Jehovah: Hianareo efa nahafaty. Ary koa, ianao koa naka ho. 'Ary rehefa afaka izany,, dia hametraka: 'Izao no lazain'i Jehovah: Eto amin'ity toerana ity, izay efa nilelafan'ny alika ny ran'i Nabota, dia ihany koa ny hilelafan'ny ny ra. ' "
21:20 Ary hoy Ahaba tamin'i Elia, "Efa nahita ahy ho fahavalonao?"Ary hoy izy:: "Efa nahita anao mba namidy, mba hanao izay ratsy eo imason 'ny Tompo:
21:21 'Indro, Dia hitarika ny ratsy noho ny aminao. Ary hokapaiko ny taranany. Ary hataoko maty Ahaba urinates na inona na inona manohitra ny rindrina, ary na inona na inona ny mandringa, ary na inona na inona no farany teo amin'ny Isiraely.
21:22 Ary hataoko an-tranonao mba ho tahaka ny taranak'i Jeroboama, ny zanak'i Nebata, sy tahaka ny taranak'i Basa,, ny zanak'i Ahia. Fa efa nanao zavatra mba nahatezitra Ahy, ary toy izany koa izay nampanotany ny Isiraely. '
21:23 Ary ny amin'i Jezebela koa dia, ny TOMPO tamin'i, nanao hoe:: 'Ny alika dia lanin'ny Jezebela tany an-tany Jezirela.
21:24 Raha toa ka efa maty Ahaba tao an-tanàna, ny alika handevona azy. Fa raha ta-maty any an-tsaha, ny voro-manidina handevona azy. ' "
21:25 Ary noho izany, tsy nisy olona hafa mitovy amin'ny Ahaba, izay namidy ka nanao izay ratsy eo imason'i Jehovah. Fa ny vadiny, Jezebela, nanery azy tamin'ny.
21:26 Ary dia tonga fahavetavetana, loatra ka dia nanaraka ny sampy izay Amorita nataony, izay tian'i Jehovah nandevona eo anatrehan'i ny Zanak'Isiraely.
21:27 Avy eo, rehefa Ahaba efa nandre ireo teny ireo, dia nandriatra ny fitafiany, Ary nataony ny lamba volon'osy fisaonana ny vatany, Ary nifady hanina, ka dia natory izy amin'ny lamba fisaonana, Ary nandeha tamin'ny lohany downcast.
21:28 Ary ny tenin'i Jehovah tonga tamin'i Elia, Tisbita, nanao hoe::
21:29 "Efa tsy hita ny fomba ny fanetren-tenan'i Ahaba teo anatrehako? Noho izany, satria efa nanetry tena izy noho ny amiko, Tsy mitarika amin'ny ratsy, mandritra ny androm-piainany. Fa tsy, nandritra ny andro ny zanany, Hataoko mihatra amin'ny loza tany an-tranony. "

1 Mpanjaka 22

22:1 Then three years passed without war between Syria and Israel.
22:2 Fa tamin'ny taona fahatelo, Jehoshaphat, ny mpanjakan'ny Joda,, descended to the king of Israel.
22:3 And the king of Israel said to his servants, “Are you ignorant that Ramoth Gilead is ours, and that we have neglected to take it from the hand of the king of Syria?"
22:4 And so he said to Jehoshaphat, “Will you come to the battle with me at Ramoth Gilead?"
22:5 And Jehoshaphat said to the king of Israel: “As I am, so also are you. My people and your people are one. And my horsemen are your horsemen.” And Jehoshaphat said to the king of Israel, “I beg you to inquire today of the word of the Lord.”
22:6 Noho izany, the king of Israel gathered together the prophets, about four hundred men, ary hoy izy taminy, “Should I go to Ramoth Gilead to make war, or should I be at peace?"Namaly izy ireo, "miakatra, and the Lord will give it into the hand of the king.”
22:7 Then Jehoshaphat said, “Is there not here a particular prophet of the Lord, so that we may inquire by him?"
22:8 And the king of Israel said to Jehoshaphat: “One man remains, by whom we may be able to inquire of the Lord: Micaiah, the son of Imlah. But I hate him. For he does not prophecy good to me, but evil.” And Jehoshaphat said, “You should not speak in this way, Ry mpanjaka ô. "
22:9 Noho izany, the king of Israel called a certain eunuch, ka hoy izy taminy:, “Hurry to bring here Micaiah, the son of Imlah.”
22:10 Now the king of Israel, ary Josafata, ny mpanjakan'ny Joda,, were each sitting upon his own throne, clothed in the habit of royal vestments, in a courtyard beside the entrance of the gate of Samaria. And all the prophets were prophesying in their sight.
22:11 koa, Zedekiah, the son of Chenaanah, made for himself horns of iron, ka hoy Izy:, "Izao no lazain'i Jehovah: With these, you shall threaten Syria, until you destroy it.”
22:12 And all the prophets were prophesying similarly, nanao hoe:: “Ascend to Ramoth Gilead, and go forth to success. For the Lord will deliver it into the hands of the king.”
22:13 Ary tena, the messenger who had gone to summon Micaiah spoke to him, nanao hoe:: "Indro, the words of the prophets, as if with one mouth, are predicting good to the king. Noho izany, let your word be like theirs, and speak what is good.”
22:14 But Micaiah said to him, "Raha velona koa Jehovah, whatever the Lord will have said to me, this shall I speak.”
22:15 And so he went to the king. Ary hoy ny mpanjaka taminy, “Micaiah, should we go to Ramoth Gilead to do battle, sa tokony hitsahatra?"Ary Jesosy namaly azy, "miakatra, and go forth to success, and the Lord will deliver it into the hands of the king.”
22:16 But the king said to him, “I require you under oath, again and again, that you not say to me anything except what is true, in the name of the Lord.”
22:17 Ary hoy izy:: “I saw all of Israel scattered among the hills, like sheep that have no shepherd. Ary hoy ny Tompo:: ‘These have no master. Let each of them return to his own house in peace.’ ”
22:18 Noho izany, the king of Israel said to Jehoshaphat: “Did I not tell you that he prophesies nothing good to me, but always evil?"
22:19 Na izany aza tena, continuing, hoy izy:: “Because of his, hihaino ny tenin 'ny Tompo. I saw the Lord sitting upon his throne. And the entire army of heaven was standing beside him, to the right and to the left.
22:20 Ary hoy ny Tompo:, ‘Who will mislead Ahab, ny mpanjakan'ny Isiraely, so that he may ascend and fall at Ramoth Gilead?’ And one spoke words in this manner, and another spoke otherwise.
22:21 But then a spirit went out and stood before the Lord. Ary hoy izy:, ‘I will mislead him.’ And the Lord said to him, ‘By what means?'
22:22 Ary hoy izy:, ‘I will go forth, and I will be a lying spirit in the mouth of all his prophets.’ And the Lord said: ‘You will deceive him, and you will prevail. Mivoaha, and do so.’
22:23 Koa ankehitriny, indro: the Lord has given a lying spirit into the mouth of all your prophets who are here. And the Lord has spoken evil against you.”
22:24 Then Zedekiah, the son of Chenaanah, drew near and struck Micaiah on the jaw, ka hoy Izy:, "Ary amin'izany, has the Spirit of the Lord left me, and spoken to you?"
22:25 And Micaiah said, “You shall see in the day when you will enter into a room within a room, so that you may conceal yourself.”
22:26 And the king of Israel said: “Take Micaiah, and let him dwell with Amon, ny komandin'ny tanàna,, and with Joash, the son of Amalech.
22:27 And tell them: ‘Thus says the king: Put this man in prison, and sustain him with the bread of affliction, and with the water of distress, until I return in peace.’ ”
22:28 And Micaiah said, “If you will have returned in peace, the Lord has not spoken through me.” And he said, “May all the people hear it.”
22:29 Ary noho izany, ny mpanjakan'ny Isiraely, ary Josafata, ny mpanjakan'ny Joda,, ascended to Ramoth Gilead.
22:30 Then the king of Israel said to Jehoshaphat: “Take up your armor, and enter the battle. And be clothed in your own garments.” But the king of Israel changed his clothing, and he entered the war.
22:31 Now the king of Syria had instructed the thirty-two commanders of the chariots, nanao hoe:, “You shall not fight against anyone, small or great, except against the king of Israel alone.”
22:32 Noho izany, when the commanders of the chariots saw Jehoshaphat, they suspected that he was the king of Israel. And making a violent assault, they fought against him. And Jehoshaphat cried out.
22:33 And the commanders of the chariots understood that he was not the king of Israel, and so they turned away from him.
22:34 But a certain man bent his bow, aiming the arrow without certitude, and by chance he struck the king of Israel, between the lungs and the stomach. Then he said to the driver of his chariot, “Turn your hand, and carry me away from the army, for I have been grievously wounded.”
22:35 Then the battle was undertaken throughout that day. And the king of Israel was standing on his chariot opposite the Syrians, and he died in the evening. For the blood was flowing from the wound into the joints of the chariot.
22:36 And a herald proclaimed throughout the entire army, before the setting of the sun, nanao hoe:: “Let each one return to his own city, and to his own land.”
22:37 Then the king died, and he was carried into Samaria. And they buried the king in Samaria.
22:38 And they washed his chariot in the pool of Samaria. And the dogs licked up his blood. And they washed the reins, in accord with the word of the Lord which he had spoken.
22:39 But the rest of the words of Ahab, and all that he did, and the house of ivory that he built, and all the cities that he constructed, were these not written in the book of the words of the days of the kings of Israel?
22:40 Ary noho izany, Ahab slept with his fathers. And Ahaziah, zanany, no nanjaka nandimby azy.
22:41 Na izany aza tena, Jehoshaphat, ny zanak'i Asa, had begun to reign over Judah in the fourth year of Ahab, ny mpanjakan'ny Isiraely.
22:42 He was thirty-five years old when he had begun to reign, and he reigned for twenty-five years in Jerusalem. The name of his mother was Azubah, the daughter of Shilhi.
22:43 And he walked in the entire way of Asa, ny rainy, and he did not decline from it. And he did what was right in the sight of the Lord.
22:44 Na izany aza tena, he did not take away the high places. For still the people were sacrificing and burning incense in the high places.
22:45 And Jehoshaphat had peace with the king of Israel.
22:46 But the rest of the words of Jehoshaphat, and his works that he did, and the battles, were these not written in the book of the words of the days of the kings of Judah?
22:47 Avy eo, koa, the remnant of the effeminate, who had remained in the days of Asa, ny rainy, he took away from the land.
22:48 Tamin'izany fotoana izany, there was no king appointed in Idumea.
22:49 Na izany aza tena, king Jehoshaphat had made a navy on the sea, which would sail to Ophir for gold. But they were unable to go, because the ships were broken down at Eziongeber.
22:50 Then Ahaziah, the son of Ahab, said to Jehoshaphat, “Let my servants go with your servants on the ships.” But Jehoshaphat was not willing.
22:51 And Jehoshaphat slept with his fathers, and he was buried with them in the city of David, ny rainy. And Jehoram, zanany, no nanjaka nandimby azy.
22:52 Then Ahaziah, the son of Ahab, began to reign over Israel, in Samaria, in the seventeenth year of Jehoshaphat, ny mpanjakan'ny Joda,. And he reigned over Israel for two years.
22:53 And he did evil in the sight of the Lord. And he walked in the way of his father and his mother, and in the way of Jeroboam, ny zanak'i Nebata, izay nampanotany ny Isiraely hanota.
22:54 koa, he served Baal, and he adored him, and he provoked the Lord, ny Andriamanitry ny Isiraely,, in accord with all that his father had done.
