If He called those whom the word of God came to 'gods'-- and the Scripture cannot be broken--

ZEFANIABIBLE_BIBLE_BOOK_NAME_12 14:16-29
16
Jehoash rested with his fathers, and he was buried in Samaria with the kings of Israel. His son Jeroboam became king in his place.
17
Judah's King Amaziah son of Joash lived 15 years after the death of Israel's King Jehoash son of Jehoahaz.
18
The rest of the events of Amaziah's [reign] are written about in the Historical Record of Judah's Kings.
19
A conspiracy was formed against him in Jerusalem, and he fled to Lachish. However, [men] were sent after him to Lachish, and they put him to death there.
20
They carried him back on horses, and he was buried in Jerusalem with his fathers in the city of David.
21
Then all the people of Judah took Azariah, who was 16 years old, and made him king in place of his father Amaziah.
22
He rebuilt Elathand restored it to Judah after [Amaziah] the king rested with his fathers.
23
In the fifteenth year of Judah's King Amaziah son of Joash, Jeroboam son of Jehoash became king of Israel in Samaria; he reigned 41 years.
24
He did what was evil in the LORD's sight. He did not turn away from all the sins Jeroboam son of Nebat had caused Israel to commit.
25
It was he who restored Israel's border from Lebo-hamath as far as the Sea of the Arabah, according to the word the LORD, the God of Israel, had spoken through His servant, the prophet Jonah son of Amittai from Gath-hepher.
26
For the LORD saw that the affliction of Israel was very bitter. There was no one to help Israel, neither bond nor free.
27
However, the LORD had not said He would blot out the name of Israel from under heaven, so He delivered them by the hand of Jeroboam son of Jehoash.
28
The rest of the events of Jeroboam's [reign]-- along with all his accomplishments and the power he had to wage war and how he recovered for Israel Damascus and Hamath, which had belonged to Judah-- are written about in the Historical Record of Israel's Kings.
29
Jeroboam rested with his fathers, the kings of Israel. His son Zechariah became king in his place.
ZEFANIABIBLE_BIBLE_BOOK_NAME_12 15:1
In the twenty-seventh year of Israel's King Jeroboam, Azariah son of Amaziah became king of Judah.
ZEFANIABIBLE_BIBLE_BOOK_NAME_12 15:2
He was 16 years old when he became king; he reigned 52 years in Jerusalem. His mother's name was Jecoliah; [she was] from Jerusalem.
ZEFANIABIBLE_BIBLE_BOOK_NAME_12 15:32
In the second year of Israel's King Pekah son of Remaliah, Jotham son of Uzziah became king of Judah.
ZEFANIABIBLE_BIBLE_BOOK_NAME_12 16:1-20
1
In the seventeenth year of Pekah son of Remaliah, Ahaz son of Jotham became king of Judah.
2
Ahaz was 20 years old when he became king; he reigned 16 years in Jerusalem. He did not do what was right in the sight of the LORD his God like his ancestor David
3
but walked in the way of the kings of Israel. He even made his son pass through the fire, imitating the abominations of the nations the LORD had dispossessed before the Israelites.
4
He sacrificed and burned incense on the high places, on the hills, and under every green tree.
5
Then Aram's King Rezin and Israel's King Pekah son of Remaliah came to wage war against Jerusalem. They besieged Ahaz but were not able to conquer him.
6
At that time Rezin king of Aram recovered Elath for Aram and expelled the Judahites from Elath. Then the Arameans came to Elath, and they live there until today.
7
So Ahaz sent messengers to Tiglath-pileser king of Assyria, saying, "I am your servant and your son. March up and save me from the power of the king of Aram and of the king of Israel, who are rising up against me."
8
Ahaz also took the silver and gold found in the LORD's temple and in the treasuries of the king's palace and sent [them] to the king of Assyria as a gift.
9
So the king of Assyria listened to him and marched up to Damascus and captured it. He deported its people to Kir but put Rezin to death.
10
King Ahaz went to Damascus to meet Tiglath-pileser king of Assyria. When he saw the altar that was in Damascus, King Ahaz sent a model of the altar and complete plans for its construction to Uriah the priest.
11
Uriah built the altar according to all [the instructions] King Ahaz sent from Damascus. Therefore, by the time King Ahaz came back from Damascus, Uriah the priest had made it.
12
When the king came back from Damascus, he saw the altar. Then he approached the altar and ascended it.
13
He offered his burnt offering and his grain offering, poured out his drink offering, and sprinkled the blood of his fellowship offerings on the altar.
14
He took the bronze altar that was before the LORD in front of the temple between [his] altar and the LORD's temple, and put it on the north side of [his] altar.
15
Then King Ahaz commanded Uriah the priest, "Offer on the great altar the morning burnt offering, the evening grain offering, and the king's burnt offering and his grain offering. [Also offer] the burnt offering of all the people of the land, their grain offering, and their drink offerings. Sprinkle on the altar all the blood of the burnt offering and all the blood of sacrifice. The bronze altar will be for me to seek guidance."
16
Uriah the priest did everything King Ahaz commanded.
17
Then King Ahaz cut off the frames of the water carts and removed the bronze basin from [each of] them. He took the reservoirfrom the bronze oxen that were under it and put it on a stone pavement.
18
To satisfy the king of Assyria, he removed from the LORD's temple the Sabbath canopy they had built in the palace, and [he closed] the outer entrance for the king.
19
The rest of the events of Ahaz's [reign], along with his accomplishments, are written about in the Historical Record of Judah's Kings.
20
Ahaz rested with his fathers and was buried with his fathers in the city of David, and his son Hezekiah became king in his place.
ZEFANIABIBLE_BIBLE_BOOK_NAME_12 18:1-37
1
In the third year of Israel's King Hoshea son of Elah, Hezekiah son of Ahaz became king of Judah.
2
He was 25 years old when he became king; he reigned 29 years in Jerusalem. His mother's name was Abi daughter of Zechariah.
3
He did what was right in the LORD's sight just as his ancestor David had done.
4
He removed the high places and shattered the sacred pillars and cut down the Asherah [poles]. He broke into pieces the bronze snake that Moses made, for the Israelites burned incense to it up to that time. He called it Nehushtan.
5
Hezekiah trusted in the LORD God of Israel; not one of the kings of Judah was like him, either before him or after him.
6
He held fast to the LORD and did not turn from following Him but kept the commandments the LORD had commanded Moses.
7
The LORD was with him, and wherever he went, he prospered. He rebelled against the king of Assyria and did not serve him.
8
He defeated the Philistines as far as Gaza and its borders, from watchtower to fortified city.
9
In the fourth year of King Hezekiah, which was the seventh year of Israel's King Hoshea son of Elah, Shalmaneser king of Assyria marched against Samaria and besieged it.
10
The Assyrians captured it at the end of three years. In the sixth year of Hezekiah, which was the ninth year of Israel's King Hoshea, Samaria was captured.
11
The king of Assyria deported the Israelites to Assyria and put them in Halah and by the Habor, Gozan's river, and in the cities of the Medes,
12
because they did not listen to the voice of the LORD their God but violated His covenant-- all He had commanded Moses the servant of the LORD. They did not listen, and they did not obey.
13
In the fourteenth year of King Hezekiah, Sennacherib king of Assyria attacked all the fortified cities of Judah and captured them.
14
So Hezekiah king of Judah sent word to the king of Assyria at Lachish, saying, "I have done wrong. Withdraw from me. Whatever you demand from me, I will pay." The king of Assyria demanded from King Hezekiah of Judah 11 tons of silver and one ton of gold.
15
So Hezekiah gave [him] all the silver found in the LORD's temple and in the treasuries of the king's palace.
16
At that time Hezekiah stripped [the gold from] the doors of the LORD's sanctuary and from the doorposts he had overlaid and gave it to the king of Assyria.
17
Then the king of Assyria sent the Tartan, the Rab-saris, and the Rabshakeh, along with a massive army, from Lachish to King Hezekiah at Jerusalem. They advanced and came to Jerusalem, and they took their position by the aqueduct of the upper pool, which is by the highway to the Fuller's Field.
18
Then they called for the king, but Eliakim son of Hilkiah, who was in charge of the palace, Shebnah the court secretary, and Joah son of Asaph, the court historian, came out to them.
19
Then the Rabshakeh said to them, "Tell Hezekiah this is what the great king, the king of Assyria, says: 'What are you relying on?
20
You think mere words are strategy and strength for war. What are you now relying on so that you have rebelled against me?
21
Look, you now trust in Egypt, the stalk of this splintered reed, which if a man leans on it will go into his palm and pierce it. This is how Pharaoh king of Egypt is to all who trust in him.
22
Suppose you say to me: We trust in the LORD our God. Isn't He the One whose high places and altars Hezekiah has removed, saying to Judah and to Jerusalem: You must worship at this altar in Jerusalem?'
23
"So now make a bargain with my master the king of Assyria. I'll give you 2,000 horses if you're able to supply riders for them!
24
How then can you drive back a single officer among the least of my master's servants and trust in Egypt for chariots and for horsemen?
25
Have I attacked this place to destroy it without the LORD's [approval]? The LORD said to me, 'Attack this land and destroy it.'"
26
Then Eliakim son of Hilkiah, Shebnah, and Joah said to the Rabshakeh, "Please speak to your servants in Aramaic, since we understand [it]. Don't speak with us in Hebrew within earshot of the people on the wall."
27
But the Rabshakeh said to them, "Has my master sent me only to your master and to you to speak these words? Hasn't [he] also [sent me] to the men who sit on the wall, [destined] with you to eat their own excrement and drink their own urine?"
28
The Rabshakeh stood and called out loudly in Hebrew. Then he spoke: "Hear the word of the great king, the king of Assyria.
29
This is what the king says: 'Don't let Hezekiah deceive you; he can't deliver you from my hand.
30
Don't let Hezekiah persuade you to trust in the LORD by saying: Certainly the LORD will deliver us! This city will not be handed over to the king of Assyria.'
31
"Don't listen to Hezekiah, for this is what the king of Assyria says: 'Make peace with me and surrender to me. Then every one of you may eat from his own vine and his own fig tree, and every one may drink water from his own cistern
32
until I come and take you away to a land like your own land-- a land of grain and new wine, a land of bread and vineyards, a land of olive trees and honey-- so that you may live and not die. But don't listen to Hezekiah when he misleads you, saying: The LORD will deliver us.
33
Has any of the gods of the nations ever delivered his land from the power of the king of Assyria?
34
Where are the gods of Hamath and Arpad? Where are the gods of Sepharvaim, Hena, and Ivvah? Have they delivered Samaria from my hand?
35
Who among all the gods of the lands has delivered his land from my power? So how is the LORD to deliver Jerusalem?'"
36
But the people kept silent; they answered him not a word, for the king's command was, "Don't answer him."
37
Then Eliakim son of Hilkiah, who was in charge of the palace, Shebna the court secretary, and Joah son of Asaph, the court historian, came to Hezekiah with their clothes torn and reported to him the words of the Rabshakeh.
ZEFANIABIBLE_BIBLE_BOOK_NAME_14 26:1-32
1
All the people of Judah took Uzziah, who was 16 years old, and made him king in place of his father Amaziah.
2
He rebuilt Elothand restored it to Judah after [Amaziah] the king rested with his fathers.
3
Uzziah was 16 years old when he became king; he reigned 52 years in Jerusalem. His mother's name was Jecoliah; [she was] from Jerusalem.
4
He did what was right in the LORD's sight as his father Amaziah had done.
5
He sought God throughout the lifetime of Zechariah, the teacher of the fear of God. During the time that he sought the LORD, God gave him success.
6
Uzziah went out to wage war against the Philistines, and he tore down the wall of Gath, the wall of Jabneh, and the wall of Ashdod. Then he built cities in [the vicinity of] Ashdod and among the Philistines.
7
God helped him against the Philistines, the Arabs that live in Gur-baal, and the Meunites.
8
The Ammonites gave Uzziah tribute money, and his fame spread as far as the entrance of Egypt, for [God] made [him] very powerful.
9
Uzziah built towers in Jerusalem at the Corner Gate, the Valley Gate, and the corner buttress, and he fortified them.
10
Since he had many cattle both in the lowlands and the plain, he built towers in the desert and dug many wells. And since he was a lover of the soil, he had farmers and vinedressers in the hills and in the fertile lands.
11
Uzziah had an army equipped for combat that went out to war by division according to the their assignments, as recorded by Jeiel the court secretary and Maaseiah the officer under the authority of Hananiah, one of the king's commanders.
12
The total number of heads of families was 2,600 brave warriors.
13
Under their authority was an army of 307,500 equipped for combat, a powerful force to help the king against the enemy.
14
Uzziah provided the entire army with shields, spears, helmets, armor, bows and slingstones.
15
He made skillfully designed devices in Jerusalem to shoot arrows and [catapult] large stones for use on the towers and on the corners. So his fame spread even to distant places, for he was marvelously helped until he became strong.
16
But when he became strong, he grew arrogant and it led to his own destruction. He acted unfaithfully against the LORD his God by going into the LORD's sanctuary to burn incense on the incense altar.
17
Azariah the priest, along with 80 brave priests of the Lord, went in after him.
18
They took their stand against King Uzziah and said, "Uzziah, you have no right to offer incense to the LORD-- only the consecrated priests, the descendants of Aaron, have the right to offer incense. Leave the sanctuary, for you have acted unfaithfully! You will not receive honor from the LORD God."
19
Uzziah, with a censer in his hand to offer incense, was enraged. But when he became enraged with the priests, in the presence of the priests in the LORD's temple beside the altar of incense, a skin disease broke out on his forehead.
20
Then Azariah the chief priest and all the priests turned to him and saw that he was diseased on his forehead. They rushed him out of there. He himself also hurried to get out because the LORD had afflicted him.
21
So King Uzziah was diseased to the time of his death. He lived in quarantinewith a serious skin disease and was excluded from access to the LORD's temple, while his son Jotham was over the king's household governing the people of the land.
22
Now the prophet Isaiah son of Amoz wrote about the rest of the events of Uzziah's [reign], from beginning to end.
23
Uzziah rested with his fathers, and he was buried with his fathers in the burial ground of the kings' cemetery, for they said, "He has a skin disease." His son Jotham became king in his place.
