Moab Fights with Israel3:1 In the eighteenth year of King Jehoshaphat’s reign over Judah , Ahab’s son Jehoram became king over Israel in Samaria ; he ruled for twelve years . 3:2 He did evil in the sight of the Lord , but not to the same degree as his father and mother . He did remove the sacred pillar of Baal that his father had made . 3:3 Yet he persisted in the sins of Jeroboam son of Nebat , who encouraged Israel to sin ; he did not turn from them. 3:4 Now King Mesha of Moab was a sheep breeder . He would send as tribute to the king of Israel 100,000 male lambs and the wool of 100,000 rams . 3:5 When Ahab died , the king of Moab rebelled against the king of Israel . 3:6 At that time King Jehoram left Samaria and assembled all Israel for war. 3:7 He sent this message to King Jehoshaphat of Judah : “The king of Moab has rebelled against me. Will you fight with me against Moab ?” Jehoshaphat replied , “I will join you in the campaign; my army and horses are at your disposal.” 3:8 He then asked , “Which invasion route are we going to take ?” Jehoram answered , “By the road through the Desert of Edom .” 3:9 So the kings of Israel , Judah , and Edom set out together. They wandered around on the road for seven days and finally ran out of water for the men and animals they had with them. 3:10 The king of Israel said , “Oh no! Certainly the Lord has summoned these three kings so that he can hand them over to the king of Moab !” 3:11 Jehoshaphat asked , “Is there no prophet of the Lord here that we might seek the Lord’s direction ?” One of the servants of the king of Israel answered , “Elisha son of Shapat is here ; he used to be Elijah’s servant.” 3:12 Jehoshaphat said , “The Lord speaks through him.” So the king of Israel and Jehoshaphat and the king of Edom went down to visit him. 3:13 Elisha said to the king of Israel , “Why are you here? Go to your father’s prophets or your mother’s prophets !” The king of Israel replied to him, “No , for the Lord is the one who summoned these three kings so that he can hand them over to Moab .” 3:14 Elisha said , “As certainly as the Lord who rules over all lives (whom I serve ), if I did not respect King Jehoshaphat of Judah , I would not pay attention to you or acknowledge you. 3:15 But now , get me a musician .” When the musician played , the Lord energized him, 3:16 and he said , “This is what the Lord says , ‘Make many cisterns in this valley ,’ 3:17 for this is what the Lord says , ‘You will not feel any wind or see any rain , but this valley will be full of water and you and your cattle and animals will drink .’ 3:18 This is an easy task for the Lord ; he will also hand Moab over to you. 3:19 You will defeat every fortified city and every important city . You must chop down every productive tree , stop up all the springs , and cover all the cultivated land with stones .” 3:20 Sure enough, the next morning , at the time of the morning sacrifice , water came flowing down from Edom and filled the land . 3:21 Now all Moab had heard that the kings were attacking , so everyone old enough to fight was mustered and placed at the border . 3:22 When they got up early the next morning , the sun was shining on the water . To the Moabites , who were some distance away, the water looked red like blood . 3:23 The Moabites said , “It’s blood ! The kings are totally destroyed ! They have struck one another down ! Now , Moab , seize the plunder !” 3:24 When they approached the Israelite camp , the Israelites rose up and struck down the Moabites , who then ran from them. The Israelites thoroughly defeated Moab . 3:25 They tore down the cities and each man threw a stone into every cultivated field until they were covered . They stopped up every spring and chopped down every productive tree . Only Kir Hareseth was left intact , but the slingers surrounded it and attacked it. 3:26 When the king of Moab realized he was losing the battle , he and 700 swordsmen tried to break through and attack the king of Edom , but they failed . 3:27 So he took his firstborn son , who was to succeed him as king , and offered him up as a burnt sacrifice on the wall . There was an outburst of divine anger against Israel , so they broke off the attack and returned to their homeland .
