In the book of 4 Kings chapter 14 ( NIV = 2 Kings 14 )

After the death of Joas, and the murder of Amasias, Jeroboam the son of Joas became the king of Israel. In verse 24, it reads “And he did that which was evil before the Lord. He departeth not from the sins of Jereboam the son of Nabat who made Israel to sin.

BUT

[God, however, did not punish Jeroboam. In fact, as verses 26-27 read, God “saved them”. Once again, the threats of Leviticus 26 did not occur.]

 

In the book of 4 Kings chapter 15 ( NIV = 2 Kings 15 )

In this book, Azarias son of Amasias “… did that which was pleasing to the Lord … but the high places he did not destroy … “ So, God struck him with leprosy (verse 5).

Azarias died, and Zacharias took the throne, and (verse 8) “… he did that which is evil before the Lord”, but God did not punish him.

Then, Sellum the son of Jabes killed Zacharias, fulfilling God’s prophecy (verse 12).

Then Manahem the son of Gadi killed Sellum, and destroyed Thapsa killing “… all the women thereof that were with child...” (verse 16).

Manahem (verse 18) “… did that which was evil before the Lord.”, but God did not punish him.

When Manahem died, Phaceia became the king, and (verse 24) “… he did that which was evil before the Lord.”, but God did not punish him.

Then Phacee killed Phaceia and fifty of his men. Phacee (verse 28)“… did that which was evil before the Lord.”, but God did not punish him.

Then Ela killed Phacee, and (verses 34-35) “… did that which was right before the Lord … but the high places he did not destroy … “, but God did not punish him.

BUT

[Once again, the threats God made in Leviticus chapter 26 did not occur. Another inconsistency occurred here when God punished Azarias, but did not punish Ela who committed the same evil.]

 

In the book of 4 Kings chapter 17 ( NIV = 2 Kings 17 )

This chapter contains a lengthy account of the evil done by the Israelites, and how “… they would not obey the Lord their God, and rejected his ordinances and the covenant that he made with their fathers … “ So, “… the Lord was very angry with Israel, and removed them from his sight.” “… there remained only the tribe of Juda.” “But neither did Juda itself keep the commandments of the Lord …” And the people “… fear not the Lord, neither do they keep his ceremonies, and judgments, and law, and the commandments which the Lord commanded the children of Jacob whom he surnamed Israel.

[Once again, the covenant was broken, and the threats God made in Leviticus chapter 26 did not occur.]

 

In the book of 4 Kings chapter 21 ( NIV = 2 Kings 21 )

In verse 2, it reads that Manasses “… did evil in the sight of the Lord …” And the people (verse 9)“… hearkened not: but were seduced by Manasses to do evil more than the nations which the Lord destroyed.

BUT

[God did not punish him, and the threats of Leviticus 26 did not occur.] In this chapter, God only threatens to “… bring evils upon Jerusalem and Juda.” Later, Manasses was captured by the Assyrians, and he repented his wrongdoings, and God forgave him, and restored him to power. Manasses then removed the pagan idols and altars.

 

In the book of 4 Kings chapter 21 ( NIV = 2 Kings 21 )

In verse 20, it reads “And he (Amon) did evil in the sight of the Lord, as Manasses his father had done.” “And he forsook the Lord the God of his fathers, and walked not in the way of the Lord.” (verse 22)

BUT

[God did not punish him, and the threats of Leviticus 26 did not occur.] Amon was assassinated, and “the people of Judah killed Amon’s assassins and made his son Josiah king.” (verses 24-25) [At that time, Josiah was eight years old.]

 

In the book of 1 Paralipomenon chapter 11 ( NIV = 1 Chronicles 11 )

In verse 23, it reads “And he (Banaias) slew an Egyptian whose stature was five cubits, and who had a spear like a weaver’s beam …” The length of a cubit is 21 inches, so five cubits meant 105 inches, or 8.75 feet.

BUT

The same verse in the King James version reported a height of 7.5 feet. [Also, the description of a spear like “a weaver’s beam” is identical to the story of Goliath.]

 

In the book of 1 Paralipomenon chapter 14 ( NIV = 1 Chronicles 14 )

In verse 3, it reads “And David took other wives in Jerusalem …

BUT

Deuteronomy 17:16-17 forbids the accumulation of horses and wives. God did not punish David, instead, he helped David defeat the Philistines in verses 15-17

 

In the book of 2 Paralipomenon chapter 11 ( NIV = 2 Chronicles 11 )

In verse 21, it reads “And Roboam loved Maacha the daughter of Absalom above all of his wives and concubines: for he had married eighteen wives, and threescore concubines …

BUT

Deuteronomy 17:16-17 forbids the accumulation of horses and wives. But God did not punish Roboam.

 

In the book of 2 Paralipomenon chapter 13 ( NIV = 2 Chronicles 13 )

In verse 21, it reads “But Abia,being strengthened in his kingdom, took fourteen wives …

BUT

Deuteronomy 17:16-17 forbids the accumulation of horses and wives. But God did not punish Abia.

 

In the book of 2 Paralipomenon chapter 21 ( NIV = 2 Chronicles 21 )

In verse 6, it reads that Joram king of Israel “… did evil in the sight of the Lord.

BUT

In verse 7, “… the Lord would not destroy the house of David: because of the covenant which He had made with him (David)…” So, God sent (verse 14) “… a great plague, with all thy people, and thy children, and thy wives … And thou shalt be sick of a very grievous disease …” [How does this action make sense? Furthermore, the covenant had been broken and retracted in Judges 2.]

 

In the book of 2 Paralipomenon chapter 24 ( NIV = 2 Chronicles 24 )

In verse 15, it reads “But Joiada grew old and was full of days, and died when he was a hundred and thirty years old.” [another exception to Gen 6:3]

 

In the book of 2 Paralipomenon chapter 25 ( NIV = 2 Chronicles 25 )

In verse 3, it reads “And when he saw himself strengthened in his kingdom, he put to death the servants that had slain the king his father.

BUT

In Exodus 20:13 and Deuteronomy 5:17, it reads Thou shall not kill.” [God, however, did not punish Amasias for those murders.]

 

In the book of 1 Esdras chapter 2 ( NIV = Ezra 2 )

In verses 1-63, “the children of the province” were listed, and the number of people of each group was listed. When the numbers are added, the total is 29,818

BUT

In verse 64, the total was given as 42,360.

 

In the book of 1 Esdras chapter 10 ( NIV = Ezra 10 )

Ezra tried to return the Israelites to the traditional laws, but some of the Israelites were married to gentiles. In verses 18-19, somehow, Ezra convinces them to divorce their wives, and atone for their sin of having married gentiles by offering a burnt sacrifice to God. [God is placated by the immolation of a ram?] In verse 44, it reads “All these had taken strange wives, and there were among them women that had borne children.” [No mention was made of the fate of the children.]

 

In the book of 2 Ezra chapter 7 ( NIV = Nehemiah 7 )

In verses 6-65, the “children of the province were listed, and the number of people of each group was listed. When the numbers are added, the total is 31,089

BUT

In verse 66, the total was given as 42,360. Additionally, the detailed information does not agree with the information given in 1 Ezra chapter 2.

 

In the book of 2 Ezra chapter 9 ( NIV = Nehemiah 9 )

In verse 21, it reads “Fourty years didst thou feed them in the desert, and nothing was wanting to them …”

BUT

In Exodus 16:2-3, it readsAnd all the congregation of the children of Israel murmured against Moses and Aaron in the wilderness. And the children of Israel said to them: Would to God we had died by the hand of the Lord in the land of Egypt, when we sat over the flesh pots, and ate bread to the full. Why have you brought us into this desert, that you might destroy all the multitude with famine?

In Exodus 17:3, it readsSo the people were thirsty for want of water, and murmured against Moses …

In Numbers 14:2-4, it reads "And all the children of Israel murmured against Moses and against Aaron: and the whole congregation said unto them, Would God that we had died in the land of Egypt! or would God we had died in this wilderness!  And wherefore hath the LORD brought us unto this land, to fall by the sword, that our wives and our children should be a prey? were it not better for us to return into Egypt?  And they said one to another, Let us make a captain, and let us return into Egypt." (NIV)

 

In the book of 2 Ezra chapter 9 ( NIV = Nehemiah 9 )

In verse 21, it reads “:… their garments did not grow old, and their feet were not worn.

BUT

In Deuteronomy29:5, it reads “… the fourty years that I led you through the desert, your clothes did not wear out, nor did the sandals on your feet.
