2 Kings 1:1-18

1Then Moab rebelled against Israel after the death of Ahab. 2And Ahaziah fell down through a lattice in his upper chamber that was in Samaria, and was sick: and he sent messengers, and said unto them, Go, enquire of Baal-zebub the god of Ekron whether I shall recover of this disease. 3But the angel of the LORD said to Elijah the Tishbite, Arise, go up to meet the messengers of the king of Samaria, and say unto them, Is it not because there is not a God in Israel, that ye go to enquire of Baal-zebub the god of Ekron? 4Now therefore thus saith the LORD, Thou shalt not come down from that bed on which thou art gone up, but shalt surely die. And Elijah departed.1.4 Thou shalt…: Heb. The bed whither thou art gone up, thou shalt not come down from it

5¶ And when the messengers turned back unto him, he said unto them, Why are ye now turned back? 6And they said unto him, There came a man up to meet us, and said unto us, Go, turn again unto the king that sent you, and say unto him, Thus saith the LORD, Is it not because there is not a God in Israel, that thou sendest to enquire of Baal-zebub the god of Ekron? therefore thou shalt not come down from that bed on which thou art gone up, but shalt surely die. 7And he said unto them, What manner of man was he which came up to meet you, and told you these words?1.7 What…: Heb. What was the manner of the man 8And they answered him, He was an hairy man, and girt with a girdle of leather about his loins. And he said, It is Elijah the Tishbite.

9Then the king sent unto him a captain of fifty with his fifty. And he went up to him: and, behold, he sat on the top of an hill. And he spake unto him, Thou man of God, the king hath said, Come down. 10And Elijah answered and said to the captain of fifty, If I be a man of God, then let fire come down from heaven, and consume thee and thy fifty. And there came down fire from heaven, and consumed him and his fifty. 11Again also he sent unto him another captain of fifty with his fifty. And he answered and said unto him, O man of God, thus hath the king said, Come down quickly. 12And Elijah answered and said unto them, If I be a man of God, let fire come down from heaven, and consume thee and thy fifty. And the fire of God came down from heaven, and consumed him and his fifty.

13¶ And he sent again a captain of the third fifty with his fifty. And the third captain of fifty went up, and came and fell on his knees before Elijah, and besought him, and said unto him, O man of God, I pray thee, let my life, and the life of these fifty thy servants, be precious in thy sight.1.13 fell: Heb. bowed 14Behold, there came fire down from heaven, and burnt up the two captains of the former fifties with their fifties: therefore let my life now be precious in thy sight. 15And the angel of the LORD said unto Elijah, Go down with him: be not afraid of him. And he arose, and went down with him unto the king. 16And he said unto him, Thus saith the LORD, Forasmuch as thou hast sent messengers to enquire of Baal-zebub the god of Ekron, is it not because there is no God in Israel to enquire of his word? therefore thou shalt not come down off that bed on which thou art gone up, but shalt surely die.

17¶ So he died according to the word of the LORD which Elijah had spoken. And Jehoram reigned in his stead in the second year of Jehoram the son of Jehoshaphat king of Judah; because he had no son. 18Now the rest of the acts of Ahaziah which he did, are they not written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Israel?

2 Hari 1:1-18

Si Elias at si Haring Ahazia

1Nang mamatay si Ahab, nagrebelde ang Moab sa Israel.

2Isang araw, nahulog si Ahazia mula sa bintanang may rehas sa itaas ng kwarto niya sa Samaria, at lubha siyang napinsala. Kaya nagsugo siya ng mga mensahero kay Baal Zebub, ang dios ng Ekron, para magtanong kung gagaling pa siya sa pagkakabaldado niya.

3Samantala, sinabi ng anghel ng Panginoon kay Elias na taga-Tisbe, “Salubungin mo ang mga mensahero ng hari ng Samaria at tanungin mo sila: Bakit kayo pupunta kay Baal Zebub, ang dios ng Ekron? Wala na bang Dios sa Israel? 4Kaya ngayon, sabihin ninyo kay Ahazia na ito ang sinasabi sa kanya, ng Panginoon, ‘Hindi ka na makakabangon sa higaan mo. Tiyak na mamamatay ka!’ ” Pagkatapos, umalis na si Elias.

5Nang masabihan na ni Elias ang mga mensahero, bumalik ang mga ito sa hari. Tinanong sila ng hari, “Bakit kayo bumalik?” 6Sumagot sila, “Sinalubong po kami ng isang tao at sinabi niya, ‘Bumalik kayo sa hari at sabihin ninyo ang sinabi ng Panginoon: Bakit nagpadala ka ng mga tao para magtanong kay Baal Zebub, ang dios ng Ekron? Wala na bang Dios sa Israel? Dahil sa ginawa mo, hindi ka na makakabangon sa higaan mo. Tiyak na mamamatay ka!’ ”

7Tinanong sila ng hari, “Ano ang itsura ng taong sumalubong at nagsabi nito sa inyo?” 8Sumagot sila, “Nakasuot po siya ng damit na yari sa balahibo ng hayop at nakasinturon na yari sa balat.” Sinabi ng hari, “Si Elias iyon na taga-Tisbe.” 9Pagkatapos, pinapunta ng hari ang isang opisyal,1:9 opisyal: o, kapitan. Ganito rin sa talatang 10,11,13. kasama ang 50 tauhan, para hulihin si Elias. Umakyat ang opisyal sa ibabaw ng burol kung saan nakaupo si Elias, at sinabi niya, “Lingkod ng Dios, sinabi ng hari na pumunta ka sa kanya.” 10Sumagot si Elias sa opisyal, “Kung lingkod nga ako ng Dios, umulan sana ng apoy mula sa langit at sunugin ka pati ang 50 tauhan mo!” Dumating nga ang apoy at nasunog ang opisyal at ang 50 tauhan niya.

11Muling nagpadala ang hari ng isang opisyal kasama ang 50 tauhan para hulihin si Elias. Sinabi ng opisyal kay Elias, “Lingkod ng Dios, sinabi ng hari na pumunta ka agad sa kanya!” 12Sumagot si Elias, “Kung lingkod nga ako ng Dios, umulan sana ng apoy mula sa langit at sunugin ka pati ang 50 tauhan mo!” Dumating nga ang apoy ng Dios mula sa langit at nasunog ang opisyal at ang 50 tauhan niya.

13Nagpadala ang hari ng ikatlong opisyal kasama ang 50 tauhan. Pagdating ng opisyal kay Elias, lumuhod siya bilang paggalang, at nagmakaawa, “Lingkod ng Dios, mahabag ka sa akin at sa mga tauhan ko. Huwag mo kaming patayin na iyong mga lingkod. 14Nalaman ko na sinunog mo ng apoy mula sa langit ang dalawang opisyal at ang mga tauhan nila. Pero mahabag kayo sa amin.”

15Sinabi ng anghel ng Panginoon kay Elias, “Sumama ka sa kanya, huwag kang matakot.” Kaya sumama si Elias sa opisyal papunta sa hari.

16Pagdating ni Elias sa hari, sinabi niya, “Ito ang sinasabi ng Panginoon: Bakit nagsugo ka ng mga mensahero para magtanong kay Baal Zebub, ang dios ng Ekron? Wala na bang Dios sa Israel na mapagtatanungan mo? Dahil sa ginawa mo, hindi ka na makakabangon sa higaan mo. Tiyak na mamamatay ka!”

17Namatay nga ang hari ayon sa sinabi ng Panginoon sa pamamagitan ni Elias. Dahil walang anak na lalaki si Ahazia, si Joram na kapatid niya ang pumalit sa kanya bilang hari. Naghari si Joram noong ikalawang taon ng paghahari ni Jehoram na anak ni Haring Jehoshafat ng Juda. 18Ang iba pang mga salaysay tungkol sa paghahari ni Ahazia ay nakasulat sa Aklat ng Kasaysayan ng mga hari ng Israel.
