2 Chronicles 23
Peshitta Holy Bible Translated Par ▾ 
1And in the seventh year Yawida was empowered and he took the Princes of hundreds: Azaryah son of Yarkhum, and Ishmael son of Yokhanan, and Azaryah son of Obayd, and Shemaiah son of Adu, and Elishaphat son of Zakri 2And these all entered into oaths that they would go around in Yehuda and they gathered the Levites from all the cities of Yehuda and the Chiefs of the fathers of Israel, and they came to Jerusalem. 3And all the people swore with oaths in the house of LORD JEHOVAH before the King, and he said to them: “Behold, he is son of the King! He shall reign over you just as LORD JEHOVAH spoke with David his Servant. 4This is the thing that you shall do: a division of you in the going in of the Sabbath, of the Priests and of the Levites, and of the Guards of the doors 5And a third in the house of the King, and a third at the door of the cooks, and all the people keep guard in the court of the house of LORD JEHOVAH 6And there shall not be a man entering the house of LORD JEHOVAH but the Priests and the Levites; those shall enter, because they are hallowed, and all the people keep guard of the house of LORD JEHOVAH. 7And the Levites shall come out to the King as they surround him, each man, and the implements of his weapons in his hand, and he who will enter the inner house shall die; and be with the King in his coming in and in his going out.”

8And the Levites and all of them of the house of Yehuda did just as Yawida the Priest commanded them, and those who were guarding in the going in of the Sabbath with those who were guarding in the going out of the Sabbath took, each man, his companion, because Yawida the Priest had released them from their guard posts. 9And Yawida the Priest gave to the Commanders of hundreds lances and shields and quivers of King David that were in the house of LORD JEHOVAH. 10And all the people stood, each man at the left side of the house, and to the altar and to the house and around it to the King. 11And they brought out the son of the King, and they put a crown and a tiara on his head, and they presented him to the Kingdom. Yawida and his sons anointed him and they were saying: “The King shall live!”

12And Thalyah heard the sound of the people who were rejoicing and glorifying the King, and she came to the King, to the house of LORD JEHOVAH. 13And she saw and behold, the King standing by a pillar according to the law of the King, and the curved and straight horns sounded before the King, and all the people were rejoicing and blowing on the horns and singing with hymns of praise, and Thalyah tore her clothes and was saying: ”Treachery! Treachery!” 14And Yawida the Priest commanded the Captains of the hundreds who rule over the army and said to them: “Bring her outside of the ranks, and whoever goes in after her will be killed by the sword!”, because the Priest said: “She shall not die in the house of LORD JEHOVAH!” 15And they made room for her and she entered in the way of the entrance of the horses, and she died there.

16And Yawida swore an oath between himself and all the people and the King, to be the people of LORD JEHOVAH. 17And all the people of Israel entered the house of Baala, and they tore it down, and its high places; they broke down “Beautiful” and its images they broke in pieces, and the Priest of Baal they killed before the altar. 18And Yawida made Leaders in the house of LORD JEHOVAH, and the Priests and the Levites whom David divided that they would be Guards over the house of LORD JEHOVAH, to offer sacrifices, according to what is written in the Law of Moshe, in joy and in hymns, by the agency of David. 19And the Guards of the gates shall stand at the gates of the house of LORD JEHOVAH, and the defiled shall not enter there. 20And he took the Chiefs of hundreds, the Rulers of the people and all the people of the land, and they came within the high gate of the house of the King, and they placed the King on the throne of the kingdom. 21And all the people of the land rejoiced and were praising with the horns, and they killed Thalia with the sword.
