2 Chronicles 21:12-15

A prophet tells Jehoram how the Lord will punish Jehoram

12 Elijah the prophet wrote a letter to Jehoram. This is what it said:

‘The Lord, your father David's God says, “You have not done what your father Jehoshaphat and Asa, kings of Judah did. 13 Instead, you have done as the kings of Israel do. You have been like Ahab and his descendants. You have caused Judah's people and the people in Jerusalem to worship false gods. And you have killed your own brothers. They were your father's sons and they were better men than you. 14 So now the Lord will hit your people, your sons, your wives and everything that is yours. He will hit them very badly. 15 You, yourself, will have many illnesses. You will have an illness in your stomach. The illness will get worse each day until in the end your inside parts will come out of your body.” ’
