1 Kings 14


1  At that1931 time6256 Abijah29 the son1121 of Jeroboam3379 fell sick.2470

2  And Jeroboam3379 said559 to his wife,802 Arise,6965 I pray thee,4994 and disguise thyself,8138 that3588 thou859 be not3808 known3045 to be the wife802 of Jeroboam;3379 and get1980 thee to Shiloh:7887 behold,2009 there8033 is Ahijah281 the prophet,5030 which1931 told1696 5921 me that I should be king4428 over5921 this2088 people.5971

3  And take3947 with3027 thee ten6235 loaves,3899 and cracknels,5350 and a cruse1228 of honey,1706 and go935 to413 him: he1931 shall tell5046 thee what4100 shall become1961 of the child.5288

4  And Jeroboam's3379 wife802 did6213 so,3651 and arose,6965 and went1980 to Shiloh,7887 and came935 to the house1004 of Ahijah.281 But Ahijah281 could3201 not3808 see;7200 for3588 his eyes5869 were set6965 by reason of his age.4480 7869

5  And the LORD3068 said559 unto413 Ahijah,281 Behold,2009 the wife802 of Jeroboam3379 cometh935 to ask1875 a thing1697 of4480 5973 thee for413 her son;1121 for3588 he1931 is sick:2470 thus2090 and thus2088 shalt thou say1696 unto413 her: for it shall be,1961 when she cometh in,935 that she1931 shall feign herself to be another woman.5234

6  And it was1961 so, when Ahijah281 heard8085 853 the sound6963 of her feet,7272 as she came in935 at the door,6607 that he said,559 Come in,935 thou wife802 of Jeroboam;3379 why4100 2088 feignest thou thyself to be another?5234 859 for I595 am sent7971 to413 thee with heavy7186 tidings.

7  Go,1980 tell559 Jeroboam,3379 Thus3541 saith559 the LORD3068 God430 of Israel,3478 Forasmuch3282 834 as I exalted7311 thee from among4480 8432 the people,5971 and made5414 thee prince5057 over5921 my people5971 Israel,3478

8  And rent7167 853 the kingdom4467 away from the house4480 1004 of David,1732 and gave5414 it thee: and yet thou hast not3808 been1961 as my servant5650 David,1732 who834 kept8104 my commandments,4687 and who834 followed1980 310 me with all3605 his heart,3824 to do6213 that only7535 which was right3477 in mine eyes;5869

9  But hast done6213 evil7489 above all4480 3605 that834 were1961 before6440 thee: for thou hast gone1980 and made6213 thee other312 gods,430 and molten images,4541 to provoke me to anger,3707 and hast cast7993 me behind310 thy back:1458

10  Therefore3651 behold,2009 I will bring935 evil7451 upon413 the house1004 of Jeroboam,3379 and will cut off3772 from Jeroboam3379 him that pisseth8366 against the wall,7023 and him that is shut up6113 and left5800 in Israel,3478 and will take away1197 the remnant310 of the house1004 of Jeroboam,3379 as834 a man taketh away1197 dung,1557 till5704 it be all gone.8552

11  Him that dieth4191 of Jeroboam3379 in the city5892 shall the dogs3611 eat;398 and him that dieth4191 in the field7704 shall the fowls5775 of the air8064 eat:398 for3588 the LORD3068 hath spoken1696 it.

12  Arise6965 thou859 therefore, get1980 thee to thine own house:1004 and when thy feet7272 enter935 into the city,5892 the child3206 shall die.4191

13  And all3605 Israel3478 shall mourn5594 for him, and bury6912 him: for3588 2088 he only905 of Jeroboam3379 shall come935 to413 the grave,6913 because3282 in him there is found4672 some good2896 thing1697 toward413 the LORD3068 God430 of Israel3478 in the house1004 of Jeroboam.3379

14  Moreover the LORD3068 shall raise him up6965 a king4428 over5921 Israel,3478 who834 shall cut off3772 853 the house1004 of Jeroboam3379 that2088 day:3117 but what?4100 even1571 now.6258

15  For the LORD3068 shall smite5221 853 Israel,3478 as834 a reed7070 is shaken5110 in the water,4325 and he shall root up5428 853 Israel3478 out of4480 5921 this2063 good2896 land,127 which834 he gave5414 to their fathers,1 and shall scatter2219 them beyond4480 5676 the river,5104 because3282 834 they have made6213 853 their groves,842 provoking the LORD to anger.3707 853 3068

16  And he shall give Israel up5414 853 3478 because1558 of the sins2403 of Jeroboam,3379 who834 did sin,2398 and who834 made Israel to sin.2398 853 3478

17  And Jeroboam's3379 wife802 arose,6965 and departed,1980 and came935 to Tirzah:8656 and when she1931 came935 to the threshold5592 of the door,1004 the child5288 died;4191

18  And they buried6912 him; and all3605 Israel3478 mourned5594 for him, according to the word1697 of the LORD,3068 which834 he spoke1696 by the hand3027 of his servant5650 Ahijah281 the prophet.5030

19  And the rest3499 of the acts1697 of Jeroboam,3379 how834 he warred,3898 and how834 he reigned,4427 behold,2009 they are written3789 in5921 the book5612 of the chronicles1697 3117 of the kings4428 of Israel.3478

20  And the days3117 which834 Jeroboam3379 reigned4427 were two8147 and twenty6242 years:8141 and he slept7901 with5973 his fathers,1 and Nadab5070 his son1121 reigned4427 in his stead.8478

21  And Rehoboam7346 the son1121 of Solomon8010 reigned4427 in Judah.3063 Rehoboam7346 was forty705 and one259 years8141 old1121 when he began to reign,4427 and he reigned4427 seventeen7651 6240 years8141 in Jerusalem,3389 the city5892 which834 the LORD3068 did choose977 out of all4480 3605 the tribes7626 of Israel,3478 to put7760 853 his name8034 there.8033 And his mother's517 name8034 was Naamah5279 an Ammonitess.5984

22  And Judah3063 did6213 evil7451 in the sight5869 of the LORD,3068 and they provoked him to jealousy7065 853 with their sins2403 which834 they had committed,2398 above all4480 3605 that834 their fathers1 had done.6213

23  For they1992 also1571 built1129 them high places,1116 and images,4676 and groves,842 on5921 every3605 high1364 hill,1389 and under8478 every3605 green7488 tree.6086

24  And there were1961 also1571 sodomites6945 in the land:776 and they did6213 according to all3605 the abominations8441 of the nations1471 which834 the LORD3068 cast out3423 before4480 6440 the children1121 of Israel.3478

25  And it came to pass1961 in the fifth2549 year8141 of king4428 Rehoboam,7346 that Shishak7895 king4428 of Egypt4714 came up5927 against5921 Jerusalem:3389

26  And he took away3947 853 the treasures214 of the house1004 of the LORD,3068 and the treasures214 of the king's4428 house;1004 he even took away3947 all:3605 and he took away3947 853 all3605 the shields4043 of gold2091 which834 Solomon8010 had made.6213

27  And king4428 Rehoboam7346 made6213 in their stead8478 brazen5178 shields,4043 and committed6485 them unto5921 the hands3027 of the chief8269 of the guard,7323 which kept8104 the door6607 of the king's4428 house.1004

28  And it was1961 so, when4480 1767 the king4428 went935 into the house1004 of the LORD,3068 that the guard7323 bore5375 them, and brought them back7725 into413 the guard7323 chamber.8372

29  Now the rest3499 of the acts1697 of Rehoboam,7346 and all3605 that834 he did,6213 are they1992 not3808 written3789 in5921 the book5612 of the chronicles1697 3117 of the kings4428 of Judah?3063

30  And there was1961 war4421 between996 Rehoboam7346 and Jeroboam3379 all3605 their days.3117

31  And Rehoboam7346 slept7901 with5973 his fathers,1 and was buried6912 with5973 his fathers1 in the city5892 of David.1732 And his mother's517 name8034 was Naamah5279 an Ammonitess.5984 And Abijam38 his son1121 reigned4427 in his stead.8478


21 καὶ Ροβοαμ υἱὸς Σαλωμων ἐβασίλευσεν ἐπὶ Ιουδα υἱὸς τεσσαράκοντα καὶ ἑνὸς ἐνιαυτῶν Ροβοαμ ἐν τῷ βασιλεύειν αὐτὸν καὶ δέκα ἑπτὰ ἔτη ἐβασίλευσεν ἐν Ιερουσαλημ τῇ πόλει ἣν ἐξελέξατο κύριος θέσθαι τὸ ὄνομα αὐτοῦ ἐκεῖ ἐκ πασῶν φυλῶν τοῦ Ισραηλ καὶ τὸ ὄνομα τῆς μητρὸς αὐτοῦ Νααμα ἡ Αμμανῖτις

22 καὶ ἐποίησεν Ροβοαμ τὸ πονηρὸν ἐνώπιον κυρίου καὶ παρεζήλωσεν αὐτὸν ἐν πᾶσιν οἷς ἐποίησαν οἱ πατέρες αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐν ταῖς ἁμαρτίαις αὐτῶν αἷς ἥμαρτον

23 καὶ ᾠκοδόμησαν ἑαυτοῖς ὑψηλὰ καὶ στήλας καὶ ἄλση ἐπὶ πάντα βουνὸν ὑψηλὸν καὶ ὑποκάτω παντὸς ξύλου συσκίου

24 καὶ σύνδεσμος ἐγενήθη ἐν τῇ γῇ καὶ ἐποίησαν ἀπὸ πάντων τῶν βδελυγμάτων τῶν ἐθνῶν ὧν ἐξῆρεν κύριος ἀπὸ προσώπου υἱῶν Ισραηλ

25 καὶ ἐγένετο ἐν τῷ ἐνιαυτῷ τῷ πέμπτῳ βασιλεύοντος Ροβοαμ ἀνέβη Σουσακιμ βασιλεὺς Αἰγύπτου ἐπὶ Ιερουσαλημ

26 καὶ ἔλαβεν πάντας τοὺς θησαυροὺς οἴκου κυρίου καὶ τοὺς θησαυροὺς οἴκου τοῦ βασιλέως καὶ τὰ δόρατα τὰ χρυσᾶ ἃ ἔλαβεν Δαυιδ ἐκ χειρὸς τῶν παίδων Αδρααζαρ βασιλέως Σουβα καὶ εἰσήνεγκεν αὐτὰ εἰς Ιερουσαλημ τὰ πάντα ἔλαβεν ὅπλα τὰ χρυσᾶ

27 καὶ ἐποίησεν Ροβοαμ ὁ βασιλεὺς ὅπλα χαλκᾶ ἀντ᾽ αὐτῶν καὶ ἐπέθεντο ἐπ᾽ αὐτὸν οἱ ἡγούμενοι τῶν παρατρεχόντων οἱ φυλάσσοντες τὸν πυλῶνα οἴκου τοῦ βασιλέως

28 καὶ ἐγένετο ὅτε εἰσεπορεύετο ὁ βασιλεὺς εἰς οἶκον κυρίου καὶ ᾖρον αὐτὰ οἱ παρατρέχοντες καὶ ἀπηρείδοντο αὐτὰ εἰς τὸ θεε τῶν παρατρεχόντων

29 καὶ τὰ λοιπὰ τῶν λόγων Ροβοαμ καὶ πάντα ἃ ἐποίησεν οὐκ ἰδοὺ ταῦτα γεγραμμένα ἐν βιβλίῳ λόγων τῶν ἡμερῶν τοῖς βασιλεῦσιν Ιουδα

30 καὶ πόλεμος ἦν ἀνὰ μέσον Ροβοαμ καὶ ἀνὰ μέσον Ιεροβοαμ πάσας τὰς ἡμέρας

31 καὶ ἐκοιμήθη Ροβοαμ μετὰ τῶν πατέρων αὐτοῦ καὶ θάπτεται μετὰ τῶν πατέρων αὐτοῦ ἐν πόλει Δαυιδ καὶ ἐβασίλευσεν Αβιου υἱὸς αὐτοῦ ἀντ᾽ αὐτοῦ

1 In tempore illo ægrotavit Abia filius Jeroboam.

2 Dixitque Jeroboam uxori suæ: Surge, et commuta habitum, ne cognoscaris quod sis uxor Jeroboam, et vade in Silo, ubi est Ahias propheta, qui locutus est mihi quod regnaturus essem super populum hunc.

3 Tolle quoque in manu tua decem panes, et crustulam, et vas mellis, et vade ad illum: ipse enim indicabit tibi quid eventurum sit puero huic.

4 Fecit ut dixerat, uxor Jeroboam: et consurgens abiit in Silo, et venit in domum Ahiæ: at ille non poterat videre, quia caligaverant oculi ejus præ senectute.

5 Dixit autem Dominus ad Ahiam: Ecce uxor Jeroboam ingreditur ut consulat te super filio suo qui ægrotat: hæc et hæc loqueris ei. Cum ergo illa intraret, et dissimularet se esse quæ erat,

6 audivit Ahias sonitum pedum ejus introëuntis per ostium, et ait: Ingredere, uxor Jeroboam: quare aliam te esse simulas? ego autem missus sum ad te durus nuntius.

7 Vade, et dic Jeroboam: Hæc dicit Dominus Deus Israël: Quia exaltavi te de medio populi, et dedi te ducem super populum meum Israël,

8 et scidi regnum domus David, et dedi illud tibi, et non fuisti sicut servus meus David, qui custodivit mandata mea, et secutus est me in toto corde suo, faciens quod placitum esset in conspectu meo:

9 sed operatus es mala super omnes qui fuerunt ante te, et fecisti tibi deos alienos et conflatiles, ut me ad iracundiam provocares, me autem projecisti post corpus tuum:

10 idcirco ecce ego inducam mala super domum Jeroboam, et percutiam de Jeroboam mingentem ad parietem, et clausum, et novissimum in Israël: et mundabo reliquias domus Jeroboam, sicut mundari solet fimus usque ad purum.

11 Qui mortui fuerint de Jeroboam in civitate, comedent eos canes: qui autem mortui fuerint in agro, vorabunt eos aves cæli: quia Dominus locutus est.

12 Tu igitur surge, et vade in domum tuam: et in ipso introitu pedum tuorum in urbem, morietur puer,

13 et planget eum omnis Israël, et sepeliet: iste enim solus inferetur de Jeroboam in sepulchrum, quia inventus est super eo sermo bonus a Domino Deo Israël in domo Jeroboam.

14 Constituet autem sibi Dominus regem super Israël, qui percutiet domum Jeroboam in hac die, et in hoc tempore:

15 et percutiet Dominus Deus Israël, sicut moveri solet arundo in aqua: et evellet Israël de terra bona hac, quam dedit patribus eorum, et ventilabit eos trans flumen: quia fecerunt sibi lucos, ut irritarent Dominum.

16 Et tradet Dominus Israël propter peccata Jeroboam, qui peccavit, et peccare fecit Israël.

17 Surrexit itaque uxor Jeroboam, et abiit, et venit in Thersa: cumque illa ingrederetur limen domus, puer mortuus est,

18 et sepelierunt eum. Et planxit eum omnis Israël juxta sermonem Domini, quem locutus est in manu servi sui Ahiæ prophetæ.

19 Reliqua autem verborum Jeroboam, quomodo pugnaverit, et quomodo regnaverit, ecce scripta sunt in libro verborum dierum regum Israël.

20 Dies autem quibus regnavit Jeroboam, viginti duo anni sunt: et dormivit cum patribus suis, regnavitque Nadab filius ejus pro eo.

21 Porro Roboam filius Salomonis regnavit in Juda. Quadraginta et unius anni erat Roboam cum regnare cœpisset: decem et septem annos regnavit in Jerusalem civitate, quam elegit Dominus ut poneret nomen suum ibi, ex omnibus tribubus Israël. Nomen autem matris ejus Naama Ammanitis.

22 Et fecit Judas malum coram Domino, et irritaverunt eum super omnibus quæ fecerant patres eorum in peccatis suis quæ peccaverunt.

23 Ædificaverunt enim et ipsi sibi aras, et statuas, et lucos super omnem collem excelsum, et subter omnem arborem frondosam:

24 sed et effeminati fuerunt in terra, feceruntque omnes abominationes gentium quas attrivit Dominus ante faciem filiorum Israël.

25 In quinto autem anno regni Roboam, ascendit Sesac rex Ægypti in Jerusalem,

26 et tulit thesauros domus Domini, et thesauros regios, et universa diripuit: scuta quoque aurea, quæ fecerat Salomon:

27 pro quibus fecit rex Roboam scuta ærea, et tradidit ea in manum ducum scutariorum, et eorum qui excubabant ante ostium domus regis.

28 Cumque ingrederetur rex in domum Domini, portabant ea qui præeundi habebant officium: et postea reportabant ad armamentarium scutariorum.

29 Reliqua autem sermonum Roboam, et omnia quæ fecit, ecce scripta sunt in libro sermonum dierum regum Juda.

30 Fuitque bellum inter Roboam et Jeroboam cunctis diebus.

31 Dormivitque Roboam cum patribus suis, et sepultus est cum eis in civitate David: nomen autem matris ejus Naama Ammanitis: et regnavit Abiam filius ejus pro eo.
