2 Kings 23


1  And the king4428 sent,7971 and they gathered622 unto413 him all3605 the elders2205 of Judah3063 and of Jerusalem.3389

2  And the king4428 went up5927 into the house1004 of the LORD,3068 and all3605 the men376 of Judah3063 and all3605 the inhabitants3427 of Jerusalem3389 with854 him, and the priests,3548 and the prophets,5030 and all3605 the people,5971 both small4480 6996 and great:1419 and he read7121 in their ears241 853 all3605 the words1697 of the book5612 of the covenant1285 which was found4672 in the house1004 of the LORD.3068

3  And the king4428 stood5975 by5921 a pillar,5982 and made3772 853 a covenant1285 before6440 the LORD,3068 to walk1980 after310 the LORD,3068 and to keep8104 his commandments4687 and his testimonies5715 and his statutes2708 with all3605 their heart3820 and all3605 their soul,5315 to perform6965 853 the words1697 of this2063 covenant1285 that were written3789 in5921 this2088 book.5612 And all3605 the people5971 stood5975 to the covenant.1285

4  And the king4428 commanded6680 853 Hilkiah2518 the high1419 priest,3548 and the priests3548 of the second order,4932 and the keepers8104 of the door,5592 to bring forth3318 out of the temple4480 1964 of the LORD3068 853 all3605 the vessels3627 that were made6213 for Baal,1168 and for the grove,842 and for all3605 the host6635 of heaven:8064 and he burned8313 them without4480 2351 Jerusalem3389 in the fields7709 of Kidron,6939 and carried5375 853 the ashes6083 of them unto Bethel.1008

5  And he put down7673 853 the idolatrous priests,3649 whom834 the kings4428 of Judah3063 had ordained5414 to burn incense6999 in the high places1116 in the cities5892 of Judah,3063 and in the places round about4524 Jerusalem;3389 them also that burned incense6999 unto Baal,1168 to the sun,8121 and to the moon,3394 and to the planets,4208 and to all3605 the host6635 of heaven.8064

6  And he brought out3318 853 the grove842 from the house4480 1004 of the LORD,3068 without4480 2351 Jerusalem,3389 unto413 the brook5158 Kidron,6939 and burned8313 it at the brook5158 Kidron,6939 and stamped it small1854 to powder,6083 and cast7993 853 the powder6083 thereof upon5921 the graves6913 of the children1121 of the people.5971

7  And he broke down5422 853 the houses1004 of the sodomites,6945 that834 were by the house1004 of the LORD,3068 where834 8033 the women802 wove707 hangings1004 for the grove.842

8  And he brought935 853 all3605 the priests3548 out of the cities4480 5892 of Judah,3063 and defiled2930 853 the high places1116 where834 8033 the priests3548 had burned incense,6999 from Geba4480 1387 to5704 Beer-sheba,884 and broke down5422 853 the high places1116 of the gates8179 that834 were in the entering in6607 of the gate8179 of Joshua3091 the governor8269 of the city,5892 which834 were on5921 a man's376 left hand8040 at the gate8179 of the city.5892

9  Nevertheless389 the priests3548 of the high places1116 came not up5927 3808 to413 the altar4196 of the LORD3068 in Jerusalem,3389 but3588 518 they did eat398 of the unleavened bread4682 among8432 their brethren.251

10  And he defiled2930 853 Topheth,8612 which834 is in the valley1516 of the children1121 of Hinnom,2011 that no1115 man376 might make 853 his son1121 or his daughter1323 to pass through5674 the fire784 to Molech.4432

11  And he took away7673 853 the horses5483 that834 the kings4428 of Judah3063 had given5414 to the sun,8121 at the entering in4480 935 of the house1004 of the LORD,3068 by413 the chamber3957 of Nathan-melech5419 the chamberlain,5631 which834 was in the suburbs,6503 and burned8313 the chariots4818 of the sun8121 with fire.784

12  And the altars4196 that834 were on5921 the top1406 of the upper chamber5944 of Ahaz,271 which834 the kings4428 of Judah3063 had made,6213 and the altars4196 which834 Manasseh4519 had made6213 in the two8147 courts2691 of the house1004 of the LORD,3068 did the king4428 beat down,5422 and broke them down7323 from thence,4480 8033 and cast7993 853 the dust6083 of them into413 the brook5158 Kidron.6939

13  And the high places1116 that834 were before5921 6440 Jerusalem,3389 which834 were on the right hand4480 3225 of the mount2022 of corruption,4889 which834 Solomon8010 the king4428 of Israel3478 had built1129 for Ashtoreth6253 the abomination8251 of the Zidonians,6722 and for Chemosh3645 the abomination8251 of the Moabites,4124 and for Milcom4445 the abomination8441 of the children1121 of Ammon,5983 did the king4428 defile.2930

14  And he broke in pieces7665 853 the images,4676 and cut down3772 853 the groves,842 and filled4390 853 their places4725 with the bones6106 of men.120

15  Moreover1571 853 the altar4196 that834 was at Bethel,1008 and the high place1116 which834 Jeroboam3379 the son1121 of Nebat,5028 who834 made 853 Israel3478 to sin,2398 had made,6213 both1571 853 that1931 altar4196 and the high place1116 he broke down,5422 and burned8313 853 the high place,1116 and stamped it small1854 to powder,6083 and burned8313 the grove.842

16  And as Josiah2977 turned6437 himself, he spied7200 853 the sepulchers6913 that834 were there8033 in the mount,2022 and sent,7971 and took3947 853 the bones6106 out of4480 the sepulchers,6913 and burned8313 them upon5921 the altar,4196 and polluted2930 it, according to the word1697 of the LORD3068 which834 the man376 of God430 proclaimed,7121 who834 proclaimed7121 853 these428 words.1697

17  Then he said,559 What4100 title6725 is that1975 that834 I589 see?7200 And the men376 of the city5892 told559 413 him, It is the sepulcher6913 of the man376 of God,430 which834 came935 from Judah,4480 3063 and proclaimed7121 853 these428 things1697 that834 thou hast done6213 against5921 the altar4196 of Bethel.1008

18  And he said,559 Let him alone;5117 let no408 man376 move5128 his bones.6106 So they let his bones alone,4422 6106 with854 the bones6106 of the prophet5030 that834 came935 out of Samaria.4480 8111

19  And 853 all3605 the houses1004 also1571 of the high places1116 that834 were in the cities5892 of Samaria,8111 which834 the kings4428 of Israel3478 had made6213 to provoke the LORD to anger,3707 Josiah2977 took away,5493 and did6213 to them according to all3605 the acts4639 that834 he had done6213 in Bethel.1008

20  And he slew2076 853 all3605 the priests3548 of the high places1116 that834 were there8033 upon5921 the altars,4196 and burned8313 853 men's120 bones6106 upon5921 them, and returned7725 to Jerusalem.3389

21  And the king4428 commanded6680 853 all3605 the people,5971 saying,559 Keep6213 the passover6453 unto the LORD3068 your God,430 as it is written3789 in5921 the book5612 of this2088 covenant.1285

22  Surely3588 there was not3808 holden6213 such2088 a passover6453 from the days4480 3117 of the judges8199 that834 judged8199 853 Israel,3478 nor in all3605 the days3117 of the kings4428 of Israel,3478 nor of the kings4428 of Judah;3063

23  But3588 518 in the eighteenth8083 6240 year8141 of king4428 Josiah,2977 wherein this2088 passover6453 was holden6213 to the LORD3068 in Jerusalem.3389

24  Moreover1571 853 the workers with familiar spirits,178 and the wizards,3049 and the images,8655 and the idols,1544 and all3605 the abominations8251 that834 were spied7200 in the land776 of Judah3063 and in Jerusalem,3389 did Josiah2977 put away,1197 that4616 he might perform6965 853 the words1697 of the law8451 which were written3789 in5921 the book5612 that834 Hilkiah2518 the priest3548 found4672 in the house1004 of the LORD.3068

25  And like unto him3644 was1961 there no3808 king4428 before6440 him, that834 turned7725 to413 the LORD3068 with all3605 his heart,3824 and with all3605 his soul,5315 and with all3605 his might,3966 according to all3605 the law8451 of Moses;4872 neither3808 after310 him arose6965 there any like him.3644

26  Notwithstanding389 the LORD3068 turned7725 not3808 from the fierceness4480 2740 of his great1419 wrath,639 wherewith834 his anger639 was kindled2734 against Judah,3063 because5921 of all3605 the provocations3708 that834 Manasseh4519 had provoked3707 him withal.

27  And the LORD3068 said,559 I will remove5493 853 Judah3063 also1571 out of4480 5921 my sight,6440 as834 I have removed5493 853 Israel,3478 and will cast off3988 853 this2063 city5892 853 Jerusalem3389 which834 I have chosen,977 and the house1004 of which834 I said,559 My name8034 shall be1961 there.8033

28  Now the rest3499 of the acts1697 of Josiah,2977 and all3605 that834 he did,6213 are they1992 not3808 written3789 in5921 the book5612 of the chronicles1697 3117 of the kings4428 of Judah?3063

29  In his days3117 Pharaoh Necho6549 king4428 of Egypt4714 went up5927 against5921 the king4428 of Assyria804 to5921 the river5104 Euphrates:6578 and king4428 Josiah2977 went1980 against7122 him; and he slew4191 him at Megiddo,4023 when he had seen7200 him.

30  And his servants5650 carried7392 him in a chariot dead4191 from Megiddo,4480 4023 and brought935 him to Jerusalem,3389 and buried6912 him in his own sepulcher.6900 And the people5971 of the land776 took3947 853 Jehoahaz3059 the son1121 of Josiah,2977 and anointed4886 him, and made him king4427 853 in his father's stead.8478 1

31  Jehoahaz3059 was twenty6242 and three7969 years8141 old1121 when he began to reign;4427 and he reigned4427 three7969 months2320 in Jerusalem.3389 And his mother's517 name8034 was Hamutal,2537 the daughter1323 of Jeremiah3414 of Libnah.4480 3841

32  And he did6213 that which was evil7451 in the sight5869 of the LORD,3068 according to all3605 that834 his fathers1 had done.6213

33  And Pharaoh Necho6549 put him in bands631 at Riblah7247 in the land776 of Hamath,2574 that he might not reign4480 4427 in Jerusalem;3389 and put5414 5921 the land776 to a tribute6066 of a hundred3967 talents3603 of silver,3701 and a talent3603 of gold.2091

34  And Pharaoh Necho6549 made4427 853 Eliakim471 the son1121 of Josiah2977 king4427 in the room8478 of Josiah2977 his father,1 and turned5437 853 his name8034 to Jehoiakim,3079 and took3947 Jehoahaz3059 away: and he came935 to Egypt,4714 and died4191 there.8033

35  And Jehoiakim3079 gave5414 the silver3701 and the gold2091 to Pharaoh;6547 but389 he taxed6186 853 the land776 to give5414 853 the money3701 according5921 to the commandment6310 of Pharaoh:6547 he exacted5065 853 the silver3701 and the gold2091 of 853 the people5971 of the land,776 of every one376 according to his taxation,6187 to give5414 it unto Pharaoh Necho.6549

36  Jehoiakim3079 was twenty6242 and five2568 years8141 old1121 when he began to reign;4427 and he reigned4427 eleven259 6240 years8141 in Jerusalem.3389 And his mother's517 name8034 was Zebudah,2080 the daughter1323 of Pedaiah6305 of4480 Rumah.7316

37  And he did6213 that which was evil7451 in the sight5869 of the LORD,3068 according to all3605 that834 his fathers1 had done.6213


1 καὶ ἀπέστειλεν ὁ βασιλεὺς καὶ συνήγαγεν πρὸς ἑαυτὸν πάντας τοὺς πρεσβυτέρους Ιουδα καὶ Ιερουσαλημ

2 καὶ ἀνέβη ὁ βασιλεὺς εἰς οἶκον κυρίου καὶ πᾶς ἀνὴρ Ιουδα καὶ πάντες οἱ κατοικοῦντες ἐν Ιερουσαλημ μετ᾽ αὐτοῦ καὶ οἱ ἱερεῖς καὶ οἱ προφῆται καὶ πᾶς ὁ λαὸς ἀπὸ μικροῦ καὶ ἕως μεγάλου καὶ ἀνέγνω ἐν ὠσὶν αὐτῶν πάντας τοὺς λόγους τοῦ βιβλίου τῆς διαθήκης τοῦ εὑρεθέντος ἐν οἴκῳ κυρίου

3 καὶ ἔστη ὁ βασιλεὺς πρὸς τὸν στῦλον καὶ διέθετο διαθήκην ἐνώπιον κυρίου τοῦ πορεύεσθαι ὀπίσω κυρίου καὶ τοῦ φυλάσσειν τὰς ἐντολὰς αὐτοῦ καὶ τὰ μαρτύρια αὐτοῦ καὶ τὰ δικαιώματα αὐτοῦ ἐν πάσῃ καρδίᾳ καὶ ἐν πάσῃ ψυχῇ τοῦ ἀναστῆσαι τοὺς λόγους τῆς διαθήκης ταύτης τὰ γεγραμμένα ἐπὶ τὸ βιβλίον τοῦτο καὶ ἔστη πᾶς ὁ λαὸς ἐν τῇ διαθήκῃ

4 καὶ ἐνετείλατο ὁ βασιλεὺς τῷ Χελκια τῷ ἱερεῖ τῷ μεγάλῳ καὶ τοῖς ἱερεῦσιν τῆς δευτερώσεως καὶ τοῖς φυλάσσουσιν τὸν σταθμὸν τοῦ ἐξαγαγεῖν ἐκ τοῦ ναοῦ κυρίου πάντα τὰ σκεύη τὰ πεποιημένα τῷ Βααλ καὶ τῷ ἄλσει καὶ πάσῃ τῇ δυνάμει τοῦ οὐρανοῦ καὶ κατέκαυσεν αὐτὰ ἔξω Ιερουσαλημ ἐν σαδημωθ Κεδρων καὶ ἔλαβεν τὸν χοῦν αὐτῶν εἰς Βαιθηλ

5 καὶ κατέπαυσεν τοὺς χωμαριμ οὓς ἔδωκαν βασιλεῖς Ιουδα καὶ ἐθυμίων ἐν τοῖς ὑψηλοῖς καὶ ἐν ταῖς πόλεσιν Ιουδα καὶ τοῖς περικύκλῳ Ιερουσαλημ καὶ τοὺς θυμιῶντας τῷ Βααλ καὶ τῷ ἡλίῳ καὶ τῇ σελήνῃ καὶ τοῖς μαζουρωθ καὶ πάσῃ τῇ δυνάμει τοῦ οὐρανοῦ

6 καὶ ἐξήνεγκεν τὸ ἄλσος ἐξ οἴκου κυρίου ἔξωθεν Ιερουσαλημ εἰς τὸν χειμάρρουν Κεδρων καὶ κατέκαυσεν αὐτὸν ἐν τῷ χειμάρρῳ Κεδρων καὶ ἐλέπτυνεν εἰς χοῦν καὶ ἔρριψεν τὸν χοῦν αὐτοῦ εἰς τὸν τάφον τῶν υἱῶν τοῦ λαοῦ

7 καὶ καθεῖλεν τὸν οἶκον τῶν καδησιμ τῶν ἐν τῷ οἴκῳ κυρίου οὗ αἱ γυναῖκες ὕφαινον ἐκεῖ χεττιιν τῷ ἄλσει

8 καὶ ἀνήγαγεν πάντας τοὺς ἱερεῖς ἐκ πόλεων Ιουδα καὶ ἐμίανεν τὰ ὑψηλά οὗ ἐθυμίασαν ἐκεῖ οἱ ἱερεῖς ἀπὸ Γαβαα καὶ ἕως Βηρσαβεε καὶ καθεῖλεν τὸν οἶκον τῶν πυλῶν τὸν παρὰ τὴν θύραν τῆς πύλης Ιησου ἄρχοντος τῆς πόλεως τῶν ἐξ ἀριστερῶν ἀνδρὸς ἐν τῇ πύλῃ τῆς πόλεως

9 πλὴν οὐκ ἀνέβησαν οἱ ἱερεῖς τῶν ὑψηλῶν πρὸς τὸ θυσιαστήριον κυρίου ἐν Ιερουσαλημ ὅτι εἰ μὴ ἔφαγον ἄζυμα ἐν μέσῳ τῶν ἀδελφῶν αὐτῶν

10 καὶ ἐμίανεν τὸν Ταφεθ τὸν ἐν φάραγγι υἱοῦ Εννομ τοῦ διάγειν ἄνδρα τὸν υἱὸν αὐτοῦ καὶ ἄνδρα τὴν θυγατέρα αὐτοῦ τῷ Μολοχ ἐν πυρί

11 καὶ κατέπαυσεν τοὺς ἵππους οὓς ἔδωκαν βασιλεῖς Ιουδα τῷ ἡλίῳ ἐν τῇ εἰσόδῳ οἴκου κυρίου εἰς τὸ γαζοφυλάκιον Ναθαν βασιλέως τοῦ εὐνούχου ἐν φαρουριμ καὶ τὸ ἅρμα τοῦ ἡλίου κατέκαυσεν πυρί

12 καὶ τὰ θυσιαστήρια τὰ ἐπὶ τοῦ δώματος τοῦ ὑπερῴου Αχαζ ἃ ἐποίησαν βασιλεῖς Ιουδα καὶ τὰ θυσιαστήρια ἃ ἐποίησεν Μανασσης ἐν ταῖς δυσὶν αὐλαῖς οἴκου κυρίου καὶ καθεῖλεν ὁ βασιλεὺς καὶ κατέσπασεν ἐκεῖθεν καὶ ἔρριψεν τὸν χοῦν αὐτῶν εἰς τὸν χειμάρρουν Κεδρων

13 καὶ τὸν οἶκον τὸν ἐπὶ πρόσωπον Ιερουσαλημ τὸν ἐκ δεξιῶν τοῦ ὄρους τοῦ Μοσοαθ ὃν ᾠκοδόμησεν Σαλωμων βασιλεὺς Ισραηλ τῇ Ἀστάρτῃ προσοχθίσματι Σιδωνίων καὶ τῷ Χαμως προσοχθίσματι Μωαβ καὶ τῷ Μολχολ βδελύγματι υἱῶν Αμμων ἐμίανεν ὁ βασιλεύς

14 καὶ συνέτριψεν τὰς στήλας καὶ ἐξωλέθρευσεν τὰ ἄλση καὶ ἔπλησεν τοὺς τόπους αὐτῶν ὀστέων ἀνθρώπων

15 καί γε τὸ θυσιαστήριον τὸ ἐν Βαιθηλ τὸ ὑψηλόν ὃ ἐποίησεν Ιεροβοαμ υἱὸς Ναβατ ὃς ἐξήμαρτεν τὸν Ισραηλ καί γε τὸ θυσιαστήριον ἐκεῖνο καὶ τὸ ὑψηλὸν κατέσπασεν καὶ συνέτριψεν τοὺς λίθους αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐλέπτυνεν εἰς χοῦν καὶ κατέκαυσεν τὸ ἄλσος

16 καὶ ἐξένευσεν Ιωσιας καὶ εἶδεν τοὺς τάφους τοὺς ὄντας ἐκεῖ ἐν τῇ πόλει καὶ ἀπέστειλεν καὶ ἔλαβεν τὰ ὀστᾶ ἐκ τῶν τάφων καὶ κατέκαυσεν ἐπὶ τὸ θυσιαστήριον καὶ ἐμίανεν αὐτὸ κατὰ τὸ ῥῆμα κυρίου ὃ ἐλάλησεν ὁ ἄνθρωπος τοῦ θεοῦ ἐν τῷ ἑστάναι Ιεροβοαμ ἐν τῇ ἑορτῇ ἐπὶ τὸ θυσιαστήριον καὶ ἐπιστρέψας ἦρεν τοὺς ὀφθαλμοὺς αὐτοῦ ἐπὶ τὸν τάφον τοῦ ἀνθρώπου τοῦ θεοῦ τοῦ λαλήσαντος τοὺς λόγους τούτους

17 καὶ εἶπεν τί τὸ σκόπελον ἐκεῖνο ὃ ἐγὼ ὁρῶ καὶ εἶπον αὐτῷ οἱ ἄνδρες τῆς πόλεως ὁ ἄνθρωπος τοῦ θεοῦ ἐστιν ὁ ἐξεληλυθὼς ἐξ Ιουδα καὶ ἐπικαλεσάμενος τοὺς λόγους τούτους οὓς ἐπεκαλέσατο ἐπὶ τὸ θυσιαστήριον Βαιθηλ

18 καὶ εἶπεν ἄφετε αὐτό ἀνὴρ μὴ κινησάτω τὰ ὀστᾶ αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐρρύσθησαν τὰ ὀστᾶ αὐτοῦ μετὰ τῶν ὀστῶν τοῦ προφήτου τοῦ ἥκοντος ἐκ Σαμαρείας

19 καί γε εἰς πάντας τοὺς οἴκους τῶν ὑψηλῶν τοὺς ἐν ταῖς πόλεσιν Σαμαρείας οὓς ἐποίησαν βασιλεῖς Ισραηλ παροργίζειν κύριον ἀπέστησεν Ιωσιας καὶ ἐποίησεν ἐν αὐτοῖς πάντα τὰ ἔργα ἃ ἐποίησεν ἐν Βαιθηλ

20 καὶ ἐθυσίασεν πάντας τοὺς ἱερεῖς τῶν ὑψηλῶν τοὺς ὄντας ἐκεῖ ἐπὶ τῶν θυσιαστηρίων καὶ κατέκαυσεν τὰ ὀστᾶ τῶν ἀνθρώπων ἐπ᾽ αὐτά καὶ ἐπεστράφη εἰς Ιερουσαλημ

21 καὶ ἐνετείλατο ὁ βασιλεὺς παντὶ τῷ λαῷ λέγων ποιήσατε τὸ πασχα τῷ κυρίῳ θεῷ ἡμῶν καθὼς γέγραπται ἐπὶ βιβλίου τῆς διαθήκης ταύτης

22 ὅτι οὐκ ἐγενήθη τὸ πασχα τοῦτο ἀφ᾽ ἡμερῶν τῶν κριτῶν οἳ ἔκρινον τὸν Ισραηλ καὶ πάσας τὰς ἡμέρας βασιλέων Ισραηλ καὶ βασιλέων Ιουδα

23 ὅτι ἀλλ᾽ ἢ τῷ ὀκτωκαιδεκάτῳ ἔτει τοῦ βασιλέως Ιωσια ἐγενήθη τὸ πασχα τῷ κυρίῳ ἐν Ιερουσαλημ

24 καί γε τοὺς θελητὰς καὶ τοὺς γνωριστὰς καὶ τὰ θεραφιν καὶ τὰ εἴδωλα καὶ πάντα τὰ προσοχθίσματα τὰ γεγονότα ἐν γῇ Ιουδα καὶ ἐν Ιερουσαλημ ἐξῆρεν ὁ βασιλεὺς Ιωσιας ἵνα στήσῃ τοὺς λόγους τοῦ νόμου τοὺς γεγραμμένους ἐπὶ τοῦ βιβλίου οὗ εὗρεν Χελκιας ὁ ἱερεὺς ἐν οἴκῳ κυρίου

25 ὅμοιος αὐτῷ οὐκ ἐγενήθη ἔμπροσθεν αὐτοῦ βασιλεύς ὃς ἐπέστρεψεν πρὸς κύριον ἐν ὅλῃ καρδίᾳ αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐν ὅλῃ ψυχῇ αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐν ὅλῃ ἰσχύι αὐτοῦ κατὰ πάντα τὸν νόμον Μωυσῆ καὶ μετ᾽ αὐτὸν οὐκ ἀνέστη ὅμοιος αὐτῷ

26 πλὴν οὐκ ἀπεστράφη κύριος ἀπὸ θυμοῦ ὀργῆς αὐτοῦ τοῦ μεγάλου οὗ ἐθυμώθη ὀργὴ αὐτοῦ ἐν τῷ Ιουδα ἐπὶ τοὺς παροργισμούς οὓς παρώργισεν αὐτὸν Μανασσης

27 καὶ εἶπεν κύριος καί γε τὸν Ιουδαν ἀποστήσω ἀπὸ τοῦ προσώπου μου καθὼς ἀπέστησα τὸν Ισραηλ καὶ ἀπώσομαι τὴν πόλιν ταύτην ἣν ἐξελεξάμην τὴν Ιερουσαλημ καὶ τὸν οἶκον οὗ εἶπον ἔσται τὸ ὄνομά μου ἐκεῖ

28 καὶ τὰ λοιπὰ τῶν λόγων Ιωσιου καὶ πάντα ὅσα ἐποίησεν οὐχὶ ταῦτα γεγραμμένα ἐπὶ βιβλίῳ λόγων τῶν ἡμερῶν τοῖς βασιλεῦσιν Ιουδα

29 ἐν δὲ ταῖς ἡμέραις αὐτοῦ ἀνέβη Φαραω Νεχαω βασιλεὺς Αἰγύπτου ἐπὶ βασιλέα Ἀσσυρίων ἐπὶ ποταμὸν Εὐφράτην καὶ ἐπορεύθη Ιωσιας εἰς ἀπαντὴν αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐθανάτωσεν αὐτὸν Νεχαω ἐν Μαγεδδω ἐν τῷ ἰδεῖν αὐτόν

30 καὶ ἐπεβίβασαν αὐτὸν οἱ παῖδες αὐτοῦ νεκρὸν ἐκ Μαγεδδω καὶ ἤγαγον αὐτὸν εἰς Ιερουσαλημ καὶ ἔθαψαν αὐτὸν ἐν τῷ τάφῳ αὐτοῦ ἐν πόλει Δαυιδ καὶ ἔλαβεν ὁ λαὸς τῆς γῆς τὸν Ιωαχας υἱὸν Ιωσιου καὶ ἔχρισαν αὐτὸν καὶ ἐβασίλευσαν αὐτὸν ἀντὶ τοῦ πατρὸς αὐτοῦ

31 υἱὸς εἴκοσι καὶ τριῶν ἐτῶν ἦν Ιωαχας ἐν τῷ βασιλεύειν αὐτὸν καὶ τρίμηνον ἐβασίλευσεν ἐν Ιερουσαλημ καὶ ὄνομα τῇ μητρὶ αὐτοῦ Αμιταλ θυγάτηρ Ιερεμιου ἐκ Λεμνα

35 καὶ τὸ ἀργύριον καὶ τὸ χρυσίον ἔδωκεν Ιωακιμ τῷ Φαραω πλὴν ἐτιμογράφησεν τὴν γῆν τοῦ δοῦναι τὸ ἀργύριον ἐπὶ στόματος Φαραω ἀνὴρ κατὰ τὴν συντίμησιν αὐτοῦ ἔδωκαν τὸ ἀργύριον καὶ τὸ χρυσίον μετὰ τοῦ λαοῦ τῆς γῆς δοῦναι τῷ Φαραω Νεχαω

1 Et renuntiaverunt regi quod dixerat. Qui misit: et congregati sunt ad eum omnes senes Juda et Jerusalem.

2 Ascenditque rex templum Domini, et omnes viri Juda, universique qui habitabant in Jerusalem cum eo sacerdotes et prophetæ, et omnis populus a parvo usque ad magnum: legitque, cunctis audientibus, omnia verba libri fœderis, qui inventus est in domo Domini.

3 Stetitque rex super gradum: et fœdus percussit coram Domino, ut ambularent post Dominum, et custodirent præcepta ejus, et testimonia, et cæremonias in omni corde, et in tota anima, et suscitarent verba fœderis hujus, quæ scripta erant in libro illo: acquievitque populus pacto.

4 Et præcepit rex Helciæ pontifici, et sacerdotibus secundi ordinis, et janitoribus, ut projicerent de templo Domini omnia vasa quæ facta fuerant Baal, et in luco, et universæ militiæ cæli: et combussit ea foris Jerusalem in convalle Cedron, et tulit pulverem eorum in Bethel.

5 Et delevit aruspices quos posuerant reges Juda ad sacrificandum in excelsis per civitates Juda, et in circuitu Jerusalem: et eos qui adolebant incensum Baal, et soli, et lunæ, et duodecim signis, et omni militiæ cæli.

6 Et efferri fecit lucum de domo Domini foras Jerusalem in convalle Cedron, et combussit eum ibi, et redegit in pulverem, et projecit super sepulchra vulgi.

7 Destruxit quoque ædiculas effeminatorum quæ erant in domo Domini, pro quibus mulieres texebant quasi domunculas luci.

8 Congregavitque omnes sacerdotes de civitatibus Juda, et contaminavit excelsa ubi sacrificabant sacerdotes de Gabaa usque Bersabee, et destruxit aras portarum in introitu ostii Josue principis civitatis, quod erat ad sinistram portæ civitatis.

9 Verumtamen non ascendebant sacerdotes excelsorum ad altare Domini in Jerusalem: sed tantum comedebant azyma in medio fratrum suorum.

10 Contaminavit quoque Topheth, quod est in convalle filii Ennom, ut nemo consecraret filium suum aut filiam per ignem, Moloch.

11 Abstulit quoque equos quos dederant reges Juda soli in introitu templi Domini juxta exedram Nathanmelech eunuchi, qui erat in Pharurim: currus autem solis combussit igni.

12 Altaria quoque quæ erant super tecta cœnaculi Achaz, quæ fecerant reges Juda, et altaria quæ fecerat Manasses in duobus atriis templi Domini, destruxit rex, et cucurrit inde, et dispersit cinerem eorum in torrentem Cedron.

13 Excelsa quoque, quæ erant in Jerusalem ad dexteram partem montis offensionis, quæ ædificaverat Salomon rex Israël Astaroth idolo Sidoniorum, et Chamos offensioni Moab, et Melchom abominationi filiorum Ammon, polluit rex.

14 Et contrivit statuas, et succidit lucos: replevitque loca eorum ossibus mortuorum.

15 Insuper et altare quod erat in Bethel, et excelsum quod fecerat Jeroboam filius Nabat, qui peccare fecit Israël: et altare illud, et excelsum destruxit, atque combussit, et comminuit in pulverem, succenditque etiam lucum.

16 Et conversus Josias, vidit ibi sepulchra quæ erant in monte: misitque et tulit ossa de sepulchris, et combussit ea super altare, et polluit illud juxta verbum Domini quod locutus est vir Dei, qui prædixerat verba hæc.

17 Et ait: Quis est titulus ille, quem video? Responderuntque ei cives urbis illius: Sepulchrum est hominis Dei, qui venit de Juda, et prædixit verba hæc, quæ fecisti super altare Bethel.

18 Et ait: Dimitte eum: nemo commoveat ossa ejus. Et intacta manserunt ossa illius cum ossibus prophetæ qui venerat de Samaria.

19 Insuper et omnia fana excelsorum quæ erant in civitatibus Samariæ, quæ fecerant reges Israël ad irritandum Dominum, abstulit Josias: et fecit eis secundum omnia opera quæ fecerat in Bethel.

20 Et occidit universos sacerdotes excelsorum qui erant ibi super altaria, et combussit ossa humana super ea: reversusque est Jerusalem.

21 Et præcepit omni populo, dicens: Facite Phase Domino Deo vestro, secundum quod scriptum est in libro fœderis hujus.

22 Nec enim factum est Phase tale a diebus judicum qui judicaverunt Israël, et omnium dierum regum Israël et regum Juda,

23 sicut in octavodecimo anno regis Josiæ factum est Phase istud Domino in Jerusalem.

24 Sed et pythones, et ariolos, et figuras idolorum, et immunditias, et abominationes, quæ fuerant in terra Juda et Jerusalem, abstulit Josias: ut statueret verba legis quæ scripta sunt in libro quem invenit Helcias sacerdos in templo Domini.

25 Similis illi non fuit ante eum rex, qui reverteretur ad Dominum in omni corde suo, et in tota anima sua, et in universa virtute sua juxta omnem legem Moysi: neque post eum surrexit similis illi.

26 Verumtamen non est aversus Dominus ab ira furoris sui magni quo iratus est furor ejus contra Judam propter irritationes quibus provocaverat eum Manasses.

27 Dixit itaque Dominus: Etiam Judam auferam a facie mea, sicut abstuli Israël: et projiciam civitatem hanc quam elegi Jerusalem, et domum de qua dixi: Erit nomen meum ibi.

28 Reliqua autem sermonum Josiæ, et universa quæ fecit, nonne hæc scripta sunt in libro verborum dierum regum Juda?

29 In diebus ejus ascendit Pharao Nechao rex Ægypti contra regem Assyriorum ad flumen Euphraten, et abiit Josias rex in occursum ejus: et occisus est in Mageddo cum vidisset eum.

30 Et portaverunt eum servi sui mortuum de Mageddo: et pertulerunt in Jerusalem, et sepelierunt eum in sepulchro suo. Tulitque populus terræ Joachaz filium Josiæ: et unxerunt eum, et constituerunt eum regem pro patre suo.

31 Viginti trium annorum erat Joachaz cum regnare cœpisset, et tribus mensibus regnavit in Jerusalem: nomen matris ejus Amital filia Jeremiæ de Lobna.

32 Et fecit malum coram Domino, juxta omnia quæ fecerant patres ejus.

33 Vinxitque eum Pharao Nechao in Rebla, quæ est in terra Emath, ne regnaret in Jerusalem: et imposuit mulctam terræ centum talentis argenti, et talento auri.

34 Regemque constituit Pharao Nechao Eliacim filium Josiæ pro Josia patre ejus: vertitque nomen ejus Joakim. Porro Joachaz tulit, et duxit in Ægyptum, et mortuus est ibi.

35 Argentum autem et aurum dedit Joakim Pharaoni, cum indixisset terræ per singulos, ut conferretur juxta præceptum Pharaonis: et unumquemque juxta vires suas exegit, tam argentum quam aurum, de populo terræ, ut daret Pharaoni Nechao.

36 Viginti quinque annorum erat Joakim cum regnare cœpisset, et undecim annis regnavit in Jerusalem: nomen matris ejus Zebida filia Phadaia de Ruma.

37 Et fecit malum coram Domino juxta omnia quæ fecerant patres ejus.
