Bible Version

1 Kings chapter 16

1
Then the Lord spoke against King Baasha through the prophet, Jehu son of Hanani. He said,
2
"I made you an important prince over my people Israel. But you have done the same things Jeroboam did. You have caused my people Israel to sin. Their sins have made me angry.
3
So Baasha, I will destroy you and your family, just as I did Jeroboam son of Nebat and his family.
4
Dogs will eat the bodies of those in your family who die in the city. And wild birds will eat the bodies of those who die out in the fields."
5
The rest of the story about Baasha and the great things he did are written in the book, The History of the Kings of Israel.
6
Baasha died and was buried in Tirzah. His son Elah became the new king after him.
7
That book also has the story of the time the Lord gave the message to Jehu the prophet about Baasha and his family. Baasha did many things the Lord said were wrong, just as Jeroboam did. This and the fact that Baasha had killed Jeroboam made the Lord very angry.
8
Elah son of Baasha became king during the 26 year that Asa was the king of Judah. He ruled in Tirzah for two years.
9
Zimri was one of King Elah's officers. Zimri commanded half of Elah's chariots, but Zimri plotted against Elah. King Elah was in Tirzah, drinking and getting drunk at Arza's home. Arza was the man in charge of the palace at Tirzah.
10
Zimri went into the house and killed King Elah. Then Zimri became the new king of Israel after Elah. This was during the 27 year that Asa was king in Judah.
11
After Zimri became the new king, he killed all of Baasha's family and friends. He did not let any male in Baasha's family live.
12
So Zimri destroyed Baasha's family just as the Lord said he would when he spoke against Baasha through the prophet Jehu.
13
This happened because of all the sins of Baasha and his son Elah. They sinned and they caused the Israelites to sin. They worshiped worthless idols, and this made the Lord angry.
14
The rest of what that Elah did is written in the book, The History of the Kings of Israel.
15
Zimri became king of Israel during the 27 year that Asa was king of Judah. Zimri ruled in Tirzah only seven days. This is what happened: The army of Israel was at Gibbethon, which was under Philistine control.
16
Omri was the commander of the army of Israel. The men in the camp heard that Zimri had made secret plans against the king and killed him. So in the camp all the soldiers made Omri the new king.
17
Then Omri and all the soldiers of Israel left Gibbethon and went to Tirzah. They surrounded the city and attacked it.
18
When Zimri saw the city had been captured, he ran to the palace fortress, but the soldiers burned it down with him still in it.
19
So Zimri died because he sinned and did what the Lord said was wrong, just as Jeroboam did when he caused the Israelites to sin.
20
The story about Zimri's secret plans and the other things that he did are written in the book, The History of the Kings of Israel.
21
Then the Israelites were divided. Half of the people followed Tibni the son of Ginath and wanted to make him king. The other half of the people followed Omri.
22
But Omri's followers were stronger than the followers of Tibni son of Ginath. Tibni died, and Omri became king.
23
Omri became king of Israel during Asa's 31 year as the king of Judah. Omri ruled over Israel for 12 years. Six of those years he ruled from Tirzah.
24
Then Omri bought the hill of Samaria from Shemer for about 150 pounds of silver. Omri built a city on that hill. He named the city Samaria after the name of its owner, Shemer.
25
Omri did what the Lord said was wrong. He was worse than all the kings who were before him.
26
He committed all the sins that Jeroboam son of Nebat had committed when he caused the Israelites to sin. They worshiped worthless idols, and this made the Lord, the God of Israel, very angry.
27
The rest of the story about Omri and the great things he did are written in the book, The History of the Kings of Israel.
28
Omri died and was buried in Samaria. His son Ahab became the new king after him.
29
Ahab son of Omri became king of Israel during the 38 year that Asa was king of Judah. Ahab ruled Israel from the town of Samaria for 22 years.
30
He did what the Lord said was wrong. Ahab was worse than all the kings who were before him.
31
It was not enough for Ahab to commit the same sins that Jeroboam son of Nebat had done, Ahab also married Jezebel daughter of King Ethbaal of Sidon. Then Ahab began to serve and worship Baal.
32
He built a temple and an altar in Samaria for worshiping Baal.
33
He also set up a sacred pole. Ahab did more to make the Lord, the God of Israel, angry than all the other kings who were before him.
34
During Ahab's time, Hiel from Bethel rebuilt the town of Jericho. When Hiel started work on the city, his oldest son Abiram died. And when Hiel built the gates of the city, his youngest son, Segub, died. This happened just as the Lord said it would when he spoke through Joshua son of Nun.

2 Chronicles chapter 15

1
The Spirit of God came on Azariah, who was Obed's son.
2
Azariah went to meet Asa and said, "Listen to me Asa, and all you people of Judah and Benjamin. The Lord is with you when you are with him. If you look for the Lord, you will find him. But if you leave him, he will leave you.
3
For a long time Israel was without the true God. And they were without a teaching priest, and without the law.
4
But when the Israelites had trouble, they turned to the Lord God again. He is the God of Israel. They looked for the Lord and they found him.
5
In those times of trouble, no one could travel safely. There was much trouble in all the nations.
6
One nation would destroy another nation and one city would destroy another city. This was happening because God gave them all kinds of trouble.
7
But Asa, you and the people of Judah and Benjamin, be strong. Don't be weak, don't give up because you will get a reward for your good work!"
8
Asa felt encouraged when he heard these words and the message from Obed the prophet. Then he removed the hated idols from the whole area of Judah and Benjamin. He also removed the hated idols from the towns he had captured in the hill country of Ephraim. And he repaired the Lord's altar that was in front of the porch of the Lord's Temple.
9
Then Asa gathered all the people from Judah and Benjamin and the people from the tribes of Ephraim, Manasseh, and Simeon who had moved from the country of Israel to live in the country of Judah. A great many of these people came to Judah because they saw that the Lord, Asa's God, was with him.
10
Asa and these people gathered together in Jerusalem on the third month in the 15 year of Asa's rule.
11
At that time they sacrificed 700 bulls and 7000 sheep and goats to the Lord. Asa's army had taken the animals and other valuable things from their enemies.
12
Then they made an agreement to serve the Lord God with all their heart and with all their soul. He is the God their ancestors served.
13
Anyone who refused to serve the Lord God was to be killed. It did not matter if that person was important or not or if that person was a man or woman.
14
Then Asa and the people made an oath to the Lord. They shouted it out loudly and blew their trumpets and rams' horns.
15
All the people of Judah were happy about the oath, because they had promised with all their heart. They followed God with all their heart. They looked for God and found him, so the Lord gave them peace in all the country.
16
King Asa also removed Maacah, his mother, from being queen mother. He did this because she had set up one of those awful poles to honor the goddess Asherah. Asa cut down that Asherah pole, smashed it into small pieces, and burned the pieces in the Kidron Valley.
17
Asa did not destroy the high places, even though he was faithful to the Lord all his life.
18
Asa and his father had given some special gifts to God. Asa put these gifts of gold, silver, and other things into the Temple.
19
There was no more war until the 35 year of Asa's rule.

2 Chronicles chapter 16

1
In Asa's 36 year as king, Baasha attacked Judah and then built up the city of Ramah to keep Asa from leaving Judah on any kind of military campaign.
2
So Asa took gold and silver from the treasuries of the Lord's Temple and the king's palace. He gave it to his officials and sent them to King Ben-Hadad of Aram. Ben- Hadad was the son of Tabrimmon. Tabrimmon was the son of Hezion. Damascus was Ben-Hadad's capital city.
3
Asa sent this message, "My father and your father had a peace agreement. Now I want to make a peace agreement with you. I am sending you this gift of gold and silver. Please break your treaty with King Baasha of Israel and make him leave us alone."
4
King Ben-Hadad made that agreement with King Asa and sent his army to fight against the Israelite towns of Ijon, Dan, Abel Maim, and the storage cities in the area of Naphtali.
5
When Baasha heard about these attacks, he stopped building up Ramah and went back to Tirzah. He stopped all the work he was doing.
6
Then king Asa gave an order for all the men in Judah, with no exceptions. They had to go to Ramah and carry out all the stone and wood that Baasha was using to build up the city. They carried the material to Geba in Benjamin and to Mizpah and used it to strengthen those two cities.
7
At that time Hanani the seer came to King Asa of Judah and said to him, "Asa, you depended on the king of Aram to help you and not the Lord your God. You should have depended on the Lord. But, because you did not depend on the Lord for help, the king of Aram's army escaped from you.
8
The Ethiopians and the Libyans had a very large and powerful army. They had many chariots and chariot drivers. But Asa, you depended on the Lord to help you defeat that large powerful army, and the Lord let you defeat them.
9
The eyes of the Lord go around looking in all the earth for people who are faithful to him so that he can make them strong. Asa, you did a foolish thing. So from now on you will have wars."
10
Asa was angry with Hanani because of what he said. He was so mad that he put Hanani in prison. He was also very rough and cruel to some of the people then.
11
Everything Asa did, from the beginning to the end, is written in the book, The History of the Kings of Judah and Israel.
12
Asa's feet became infected in his 39 year as king. Even though the infection was very serious, Asa did not go to the Lord for help. He went to the doctors instead.
13
Asa died in the 41 year as king and rested with his ancestors.
14
The people buried Asa in his own tomb that he made for himself in the City of David. They laid him in a bed that was filled with spices and different kinds of mixed perfumes, and they burned a large fire for him.

Colossians chapter 1

1
Greetings from Paul, an apostle of Christ Jesus. I am an apostle because that is what God wanted. Greetings also from Timothy, our brother in Christ.
2
To the holy and faithful brothers and sisters in Christ who live in Colossae. Grace and peace to you from God our Father.
3
In our prayers we always thank God for you. He is the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.
4
We thank him because we have heard about the faith you have in Christ Jesus and the love you have for all of God's people.
5
Your faith and love continue because you know what is waiting for you in heaven�the hope you have had since you first heard the true message, the Good News
6
that was told to you. Throughout the world, this Good News is bringing blessings and is spreading. And that's what has been happening among you since the first time you heard it and understood the truth about God's grace.
7
You heard it from Epaphras, our dear friend and co-worker. He is a faithful servant of Christ for you.
8
He also told us about the love you have from the Spirit.
9
Since the day we heard these things about you, we have continued praying for you. This is what we pray: that you will know fully what God wants; that with your knowledge you will also have great wisdom and understanding in spiritual things;
10
that this will help you live in a way that brings honor to the Lord and pleases him in every way; that your life will produce good works of every kind and that you will grow in your knowledge of God;
11
that God will strengthen you with his own great power, so that you will be patient and not give up when troubles come. Then you will be happy
12
and give thanks to the Father. He has made you able to have what he has promised to give all his holy people, who live in the light.
13
God made us free from the power of darkness. And he brought us into the kingdom of his dear Son.
14
The Son paid the price to make us free. In him we have forgiveness of our sins.
15
No one can see God, but Jesus is exactly like God. Jesus rules over everything that has been made.
16
Through his power all things were made: things in heaven and on earth, seen and not seen� all spiritual rulers, lords, powers, and authorities. Everything was made through Christ and for Christ.
17
He was there before anything was made. And all things continue because of him.
18
Christ is the head of the body, which is the church. He is the beginning of everything else. And he is the first among all who will be raised from death. So in everything he is most important.
19
God was pleased for all of himself to live in Christ.
20
And through Christ, God was happy to bring all things back to himself again�things on earth and things in heaven. God made peace by using the blood sacrifice of Christ on the cross.
21
At one time you were separated from God. You were his enemies in your minds, because the evil you did was against him.
22
But now he has made you his friends again. He did this by the death Christ suffered while he was in his body. He did it so that he could present you to himself as people who are holy, blameless, and without anything that would make you guilty before him.
23
And that is what will happen if you continue to believe in the Good News you heard. You must remain strong and sure in your faith. You must not let anything cause you to give up the hope that became yours when you heard the Good News. That same Good News has been told to everyone on earth, and that's the work that I, Paul, was given to do.
24
I am happy in my sufferings for you. There is much that Christ must still suffer through his body, the church. I am accepting my part of what must be suffered. I accept these sufferings in my body.
25
I became a servant of the church because God gave me a special work to do. This work helps you. My work is to tell the complete message of God.
26
This message is the secret truth that was hidden since the beginning of time. It was hidden from everyone for ages, but now it has been made known to God's holy people.
27
God decided to let his people know that rich and glorious truth, which is for all people. That truth is Christ himself, who is in you. He is our only hope for glory.
28
So we continue to tell people about Christ. We use all wisdom to counsel every person and teach every person. We are trying to bring everyone before God as people who have grown to be spiritually mature in Christ.
29
To do this, I work and struggle using the great strength that Christ gives me. That strength is working in my life.
