1 And behold, there came a man of God out of Juda by the word of the Lord to Baethel, and Jeroboam stood at the altar to sacrifice. 2 And he cried against the altar by the word of the Lord, and said, O altar, altar, thus saith the Lord, Behold, a son is [to be] born to the house of David, Josias by name; and he shall offer upon thee the priests of the high places, [even] of them that sacrifice upon thee, and [he] shall burn men’s bones upon thee. 3 And in that day one shall give a sign, saying, This [is] the word which the Lord has spoken, saying, Behold, the altar is rent, and the fatness upon it shall be poured out. 4 And it came to pass when king Jeroboam heard the words of the man of God who called on the altar that was in Baethel, that the king stretched forth his hand from the altar, saying, Take hold of him. And, behold, his hand, which he stretched forth against him, withered, and he could not draw it back to himself. 5 And the altar was rent, and the fatness was poured out from the altar, according to the sign which the man of God gave by the word of the Lord. 6 And king Jeroboam said to the man of God, Intreat the Lord thy God, and let my hand be restored to me. And the man of God intreated the Lord, and he restored the king’s hand to him, and it became as before. 7 And the king said to the man of God, Enter with me into the house, and dine, and I will give thee a gift. 8 And the man of God said to the king, If thou shouldest give me the half of thine house, I would not go in with thee, neither will I eat bread, neither will I drink water in this place; for thus the Lord charged me by [his] word, saying, 9 Eat no bread, and drink no water, and return not by the way by which thou camest. 10 So he departed by another way, and returned not by the way by which he came to Baethel. 11 And there dwelt an old prophet in Baethel; and his sons came and told him all the works that the man of God did on that day in Baethel, and the words which he spoke to the king: and they turned the face of their father. 12 And their father spoke to them, saying, Which way went he? and his sons shew him the way by which the man of God who came out of Juda went up. 13 And he said to his sons, Saddle me the ass: and they saddled him the ass, and he mounted it, 14 and went after the man of God, and found him sitting under an oak: and he said to him, Art thou the man of God that came out of Juda? And he said to him, I [am]. 15 And he said to him, Come with me, and eat bread. 16 And he said, I shall not by any means be able to return with thee, neither will I eat bread, neither will I drink water in this place. 17 For thus the Lord commanded me by word, saying, Eat not bread there, and drink not water, and return not thither by the way by which thou camest. 18 And he said to him, I also am a prophet as thou [art]; and an angel spoke to me by the word of the Lord, saying, Bring him back to thee into thy house, and let him eat bread and drink water: but he lied to him. 19 And he brought him back, and he ate bread and drank water in his house. 20 And it came to pass while they were sitting at the table, that the word of the Lord came to the prophet that brought him back; 21 and he spoke to the man of God that came out of Juda, saying, Thus saith the Lord, Because thou hast resisted the word of the Lord, and hast not kept the commandment which the Lord thy God commanded thee, 22 but hast returned, and eaten bread and drunk water in the place of which he spoke to thee, saying, Thou shalt not eat bread, and shalt not drink water; [therefore] thy body shall in nowise enter into the sepulchre of thy fathers. 23 And it came to pass after he had eaten bread and drunk water, that he saddled the ass for him, and he turned and departed. 24 And a lion found him in the way, and slew him; and his body was cast out in the way, and the ass was standing by it, and the lion [also] was standing by the body. 25 And, behold, men [were] passing by, and saw the carcase cast in the way, and the lion was standing near the carcase: and they went in and spoke [of it] in the city where the old prophet dwelt. 26 And [the prophet] that turned him back out of the way heard, and said, This is the man of God who rebelled against the word of the Lord. 27 [See Appendix] 28 And he went and found the body cast in the way, and the ass and the lion were standing by the body: and the lion had not devoured the body of the man of God, and had not torn the ass. 29 And the prophet took up the body of the man of God, and laid it on his ass; and the prophet brought him back to his city, to bury him in his own tomb, 30 and they bewailed him, [saying], Alas, brother. 31 And it came to pass after he had lamented him, that he spoke to his sons, saying, Whenever I die, bury me in this tomb wherein the man of God is buried; lay me by his bones, that my bones may be preserved with his bones. 32 For the word will surely come to pass which he spoke by the word of the Lord against the altar in Baethel, and against the high houses in Samaria. 33 And after this Jeroboam turned not from his sin, but he turned and made of part of the people priests of the [high places]: whoever would, he consecrated him, and he became a priest for the high places. 34 And this thing became sin to the house of Jeroboam, even to its destruction and its removal from the face of the earth. ΚΑΙ ἰδοὺ ἄνθρωπος τοῦ Θεοῦ ἐξ ᾿Ιούδα παρεγένετο ἐν λόγῳ Κυρίου εἰς Βαιθήλ, καὶ ῾Ιεροβοὰμ εἱστήκει ἐπὶ τὸ θυσιαστήριον ἐπιθῦσαι. 2 καὶ ἐπεκάλεσε πρὸς τὸ θυσιαστήριον ἐν λόγῳ Κυρίου καὶ εἶπε· θυσιαστήριον θυσιαστήριον, τάδε λέγει Κύριος· ἰδοὺ υἱὸς τίκτεται τῷ οἴκῳ Δαυίδ, ᾿Ιωσίας ὄνομα αὐτῷ, καὶ θύσει ἐπὶ σὲ τοὺς ἱερεῖς τῶν ὑψηλῶν τοὺς ἐπιθύοντας ἐπὶ σὲ καὶ ὀστᾶ ἀνθρώπων καύσει ἐπὶ σέ. 3 καὶ δώσει ἐν τῇ ἡμέρᾳ ἐκείνῃ τέρας λέγων· τοῦτο τὸ ῥῆμα ὃ ἐλάλησε Κύριος λέγων· ἰδοὺ τὸ θυσιαστήριον ρήγνυται, καὶ ἐκχυθήσεται ἡ πιότης ἡ ἐπ᾿ αὐτῷ. 4 καὶ ἐγένετο ὡς ἤκουσεν ὁ βασιλεὺς ῾Ιεροβοὰμ τῶν λόγων τοῦ ἀνθρώπου τοῦ Θεοῦ τοῦ ἐπικαλεσαμένου ἐπὶ τὸ θυσιαστήριον τὸ ἐν Βαιθήλ, καὶ ἐξέτεινεν ὁ βασιλεὺς τὴν χεῖρα αὐτοῦ ἀπὸ τοῦ θυσιαστηρίου λέγων· συλλάβετε αὐτόν· καὶ ἰδοὺ ἐξηράνθη ἡ χεὶρ αὐτοῦ, ἣν ἐξέτεινεν ἐπ᾿ αὐτόν, καὶ οὐκ ἐδυνήθη ἐπιστρέψαι αὐτὴν πρὸς αὐτόν, 5 καὶ τὸ θυσιαστήριον ἐρράγη, καὶ ἐξεχύθη ἡ πιότης ἀπὸ τοῦ θυσιαστηρίου κατὰ τὸ τέρας, ὃ ἔδωκεν ὁ ἄνθρωπος τοῦ Θεοῦ ἐν λόγῳ Κυρίου. 6 καὶ εἶπεν ὁ βασιλεὺς ῾Ιεροβοὰμ τῷ ἀνθρώπῳ τοῦ Θεοῦ· δεήθητι τοῦ προσώπου Κυρίου τοῦ Θεοῦ σου, καὶ ἐπιστρεψάτω ἡ χείρ μου πρὸς ἐμέ. καὶ ἐδεήθη ὁ ἄνθρωπος τοῦ Θεοῦ τοῦ προσώπου Κυρίου, καὶ ἐπέστρεψε τὴν χεῖρα τοῦ βασιλέως πρὸς αὐτόν, καὶ ἐγένετο καθὼς τὸ πρότερον. 7 καὶ ἐλάλησεν ὁ βασιλεὺς πρὸς τὸν ἄνθρωπον τοῦ Θεοῦ· εἴσελθε μετ᾿ ἐμοῦ εἰς οἶκον καὶ ἀρίστησον, καὶ δώσω σοι δόμα. 8 καὶ εἶπεν ὁ ἄνθρωπος τοῦ Θεοῦ πρὸς τὸν βασιλέα· ἐὰν δῷς μοι τὸ ἥμισυ τοῦ οἴκου σου, οὐκ εἰσελεύσομαι μετὰ σοῦ οὐδὲ μὴ φάγω ἄρτον οὐδὲ μὴ πίω ὕδωρ ἐν τῷ τόπῳ τούτῳ· 9 ὅτι οὕτως ἐνετείλατό μοι Κύριος ἐν λόγῳ λέγων· μὴ φάγῃς ἄρτον καὶ μὴ πίῃς ὕδωρ καὶ μὴ ἐπιστρέψῃς ἐν τῇ ὁδῶ, ᾗ ἐπορεύθης ἐν αὐτῇ. 10 καὶ ἀπῆλθεν ἐν ὁδῷ ἄλλῃ καὶ οὐκ ἀνέστρεψεν ἐν τῇ ὁδῷ, ᾗ ἦλθεν ἐν αὐτῇ εἰς Βαιθήλ. 11 Καὶ προφήτης εἷς πρεσβύτης κατῴκει ἐν Βαιθήλ, καὶ ἔρχονται οἱ υἱοὶ αὐτοῦ καὶ διηγήσαντο αὐτῷ πάντα τὰ ἔργα, ἃ ἐποίησεν ὁ ἄνθρωπος τοῦ Θεοῦ ἐν τῇ ἡμέρᾳ ἐκείνῃ ἐν Βαιθήλ, καὶ τοὺς λόγους, οὓς ἐλάλησε τῷ βασιλεῖ· καὶ ἐπέστρεψαν τὸ πρόσωπον τοῦ πατρὸς αὐτῶν. 12 καὶ ἐλάλησε πρὸς αὐτοὺς ὁ πατὴρ αὐτῶν λέγων· ποίᾳ ὁδῷ πεπόρευται; καὶ δεικνύουσιν αὐτῷ οἱ υἱοὶ αὐτοῦ τὴν ὁδόν, ἐν ᾗ ἀνῆλθεν ὁ ἄνθρωπος τοῦ Θεοῦ ὁ ἐλθὼν ἐξ ᾿Ιούδα. 13 καὶ εἶπε τοῖς υἱοῖς αὐτοῦ· ἐπισάξατέ μοι τὸν ὄνον· καὶ ἐπέσαξαν αὐτῷ τὸν ὄνον, καὶ ἐπέβη ἐπ᾿ αὐτόν. 14 καὶ ἐπορεύθη κατόπισθεν τοῦ ἀνθρώπου τοῦ Θεοῦ καὶ εὗρεν αὐτὸν καθήμενον ὑπὸ δρῦν καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῷ· εἰ σὺ εἶ ὁ ἄνθρωπος τοῦ Θεοῦ ὁ ἐληλυθὼς ἐξ ᾿Ιούδα; καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῷ· ἐγώ. 15 καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῷ· δεῦρο μετ᾿ ἐμοῦ καὶ φάγε ἄρτον. 16 καὶ εἶπεν· οὐ μὴ δύνωμαι τοῦ ἐπιστρέψαι μετὰ σοῦ οὐδὲ μὴ φάγομαι ἄρτον οὐδὲ πίομαι ὕδωρ ἐν τῷ τόπῳ τούτῳ· 17 ὅτι οὕτως ἐντέταλταί μοι ἐν λόγῳ Κύριος λέγων· μὴ φάγῃς ἄρτον ἐκεῖ καὶ μὴ πίῃς ὕδωρ καὶ μὴ ἐπιστρέψῃς ἐκεῖ ἐν τῇ ὁδῷ, ᾗ ἐπορεύθης ἐν αὐτῇ. 18 καὶ εἶπε πρὸς αὐτόν· κἀγὼ προφήτης εἰμὶ καθὼς σύ, καὶ ἄγγελος λελάληκε πρός με ἐν ρήματι Κυρίου λέγων· ἐπίστρεψον αὐτὸν πρὸς σεαυτὸν εἰς τὸν οἶκόν σου, καὶ φαγέτω ἄρτον, καὶ πιέτω ὕδωρ· καὶ ἐψεύσατο αὐτῷ. 19 καὶ ἐπέστρεψεν αὐτὸν καὶ ἔφαγεν ἄρτον καὶ ἔπιεν ὕδωρ ἐν τῷ οἴκῳ αὐτοῦ. 20 καὶ ἐγένετο αὐτῶν καθημένων ἐπὶ τῆς τραπέζης, καὶ ἐγένετο λόγος Κυρίου πρὸς τὸν προφήτην τὸν ἐπιστρέψαντα αὐτὸν 21 καὶ εἶπε πρὸς τὸν ἄνθρωπον τοῦ Θεοῦ τὸν ἥκοντα ἐξ ᾿Ιούδα λέγων· τάδε λέγει Κύριος· ἀνθ᾿ ὧν παρεπίκρανας τὸ ρῆμα Κυρίου καὶ οὐκ ἐφύλαξας τὴν ἐντολήν, ἣν ἐνετείλατό σοι Κύριος ὁ Θεός σου, 22 καὶ ἐπέστρεψας καὶ ἔφαγες ἄρτον καὶ ἔπιες ὕδωρ ἐν τῷ τόπῳ τούτῳ, ᾧ ἐλάλησε πρός σε λέγων· οὐ μὴ φάγῃς ἄρτον καὶ μὴ πίῃς ὕδωρ, οὐ μὴ εἰσέλθῃ τὸ σῶμά σου εἰς τὸν τάφον τῶν πατέρων σου. 23 καὶ ἐγένετο μετὰ τὸ φαγεῖν αὐτὸν ἄρτον καὶ πιεῖν ὕδωρ, καὶ ἐπέσαξεν αὐτῷ τὸν ὄνον, καὶ ἐπέστρεψε. 24 καὶ ἀπῆλθε, καὶ εὗρεν αὐτὸν λέων ἐν τῇ ὁδῷ καὶ ἐθανάτωσεν αὐτόν, καὶ ἦν τὸ σῶμα αὐτοῦ ἐρριμμένον ἐν τῇ ὁδῷ, καὶ ὁ ὄνος εἱστήκει παρ᾿ αὐτό, καὶ ὁ λέων εἱστήκει παρὰ τὸ σῶμα. 25 καὶ ἰδοὺ ἄνδρες παραπορευόμενοι καὶ εἶδον τὸ θνησιμαῖον ἐρριμμένον ἐν τῇ ὁδῷ καὶ ὁ λέων εἱστήκει ἐχόμενα τοῦ θνησιμαίου· καὶ εἰσῆλθον καὶ ἐλάλησαν ἐν τῇ πόλει, οὗ ὁ προφήτης ὁ πρεσβύτης κατῴκει ἐν αὐτῇ. 26 καὶ ἤκουσεν ὁ ἐπιστρέψας αὐτὸν ἐκ τῆς ὁδοῦ καὶ εἶπεν· ὁ ἄνθρωπος τοῦ Θεοῦ οὗτός ἐστίν, ὃς παρεπίκρανε τὸ ρῆμα Κυρίου. 27 καὶ ἐλάλησεν πρὸς τοὺς υἱοὺς αὐτοῦ τῷ λέγειν ἐπισάξατέ μοι τὴν ὄνον, καὶ ἐπέσαξαν. 28 καὶ ἐπορεύθη καὶ εὗρε τὸ σῶμα αὐτοῦ ἐρριμμένον ἐν τῇ ὁδῷ, καὶ ὁ ὄνος καὶ ὁ λέων εἱστήκεισαν παρὰ τὸ σῶμα, καὶ οὐκ ἔφαγεν ὁ λέων τὸ σῶμα τοῦ ἀνθρώπου τοῦ Θεοῦ καὶ οὐ συνέτριψε τὸν ὄνον. 29 καὶ ᾖρεν ὁ προφήτης τὸ σῶμα τοῦ ἀνθρώπου τοῦ Θεοῦ καὶ ἐπέθηκεν αὐτὸ ἐπὶ τὸν ὄνον, καὶ ἐπέστρεψεν αὐτὸν εἰς τὴν πόλιν ὁ προφήτης τοῦ θάψαι αὐτὸν 30 ἐν τῷ τάφῳ ἑαυτοῦ, καὶ ἐκόψαντο αὐτόν· οὐαὶ ἀδελφέ. 31 καὶ ἐγένετο μετὰ τὸ κόψασθαι αὐτὸν καὶ εἶπε τοῖς υἱοῖς αὐτοῦ λέγων· ἐὰν ἀποθάνω, θάψατέ με ἐν τῷ τάφῳ τούτῳ οὗ ὁ ἄνθρωπος τοῦ Θεοῦ τέθαπται ἐν αὐτῷ· παρὰ τὰ ὀστᾶ αὐτοῦ θέτε με, ἵνα σωθῶσι τὰ ὀστᾶ μου μετὰ τῶν ὀστῶν αὐτοῦ· 32 ὅτι γινόμενον ἔσται τὸ ρῆμα, ὃ ἐλάλησεν ἐν λόγῳ Κυρίου ἐπὶ τὸ θυσιαστήριον ἐν Βαιθὴλ καὶ ἐπὶ τοὺς οἴκους τοὺς ὑψηλοὺς τοὺς ἐν Σαμαρείᾳ. 33 καὶ μετὰ τὸ ρῆμα τοῦτο οὐκ ἐπέστρεψεν ῾Ιεροβοὰμ ἀπὸ τῆς κακίας αὐτοῦ, καὶ ἐπέστρεψε καὶ ἐποίησεν ἐκ μέρους τοῦ λαοῦ ἱερεῖς ὑψηλῶν· ὁ βουλόμενος ἐπλήρου τὴν χεῖρα αὐτοῦ, καὶ ἐγίνετο ἱερεὺς εἰς τὰ ὑψηλά. 34 καὶ ἐγένετο τὸ ρῆμα τοῦτο εἰς ἁμαρτίαν τῷ οἴκῳ ῾Ιεροβοὰμ καὶ εἰς ὄλεθρον καὶ εἰς ἀφανισμὸν ἀπὸ προσώπου τῆς γῆς.
