1Now Moab rebelled against Israel after the death of Ahab.
2And Ahaziah fell down through the lattice in his upper room that was in Samaria and was injured. So he sent messengers and said to them, “Go, inquire of Baal-zebub, the god of Ekron, whether I will live through this injury.”
3But the angel of Yahweh said to Elijah the Tishbite, “Arise, go up to meet the messengers of the king of Samaria and tell them, ‘Is it because there is no God in Israel that you go to inquire of Baal-zebub the god of Ekron?
4Therefore, this is what Yahweh says: You will not come down from the bed to which you have gone up, but will die, yes, die.’” And Elijah departed.
6They said to him, “A man came up to meet us and said to us, ‘Go, return to the king who sent you and tell him, This is what Yahweh says: Is it because there is no God in Israel that you send to inquire of Baal-zebub the god of Ekron? Therefore you will not come down from the bed on which you have gone up, but die, yes, die.’”
9Then the king sent to him a commander of 50 with his unit of 50. He went up to him, and behold, he was sitting on the top of the hill. And he said to him, “O man of God, the king has said, ‘Come down!’”
13Again he sent the commander of a third 50 with his 50. The third commander of 50 went up and came and fell on his knees before Elijah and begged him, and said to him, “O man of God, please let my life and the life of these 50 your servants be valuable in your eyes.
14Behold, fire came down from heaven and consumed the two former commanders of 50 with their fifties. But now let my life be valuable in your eyes.”
16And he said to him, “This is what Yahweh says: ‘Because you have sent messengers to inquire of Baal-zebub the god of Ekron—is it because there is no God in Israel to inquire of his word?—therefore you will not come down from the bed on which you have gone up, but will die, yes, die.’”
17So he died according to the word of Yahweh that Elijah had spoken. And because he had no son, Jehoram his brother began to reign in his place in the second year of Jehoram the son of Jehoshaphat king of Judah,.
18Now the rest of the acts of Ahaziah that he did, are they not written in the Book of the Chronicles of the kings of Israel?
