1 Joas [was] seven years old when he began to reign. 2 Joas began to reign in the seventh year of Ju, and he reigned forty years in Jerusalem: and his mother’s name [was] Sabia of Bersabee. 3 And Joas did that which was right in the sight of the Lord all the days that Jodae the priest instructed him. 4 Only there were not [any] of the high places removed, and the people still sacrificed there, and burned incense on the high places. 5 And Joas said to the priests, [As for] all the money of the holy things that is brought into the house of the Lord, the money of valuation, [as] each man brings the money of valuation, all the money which any man may feel disposed to bring into the house of the Lord, 6 let the priests take it to themselves, every man from [the proceeds of] his sale: and they shall repair the breaches of the house in all [places] wheresoever a breach shall be found. 7 And it came to pass in the twenty-third year of king Joas the priests [had] not repaired the breaches of the house. 8 And king Joas called Jodae the priest, and the [other] priests, and said to them, Why have ye not repaired the breaches of the house? now then receive no [more] money from your sales, for ye shall give it to [repair the] breaches of the house. 9 And the priests consented to receive no more money of the people, and not to repair the breaches of the house. 10 And Jodae the priest took a chest, and bored a hole in the lid of it, and set it by the altar in the house of a man [belonging to] the house of the Lord, and the priests that kept the door put [therein] all the money that was found in the house of the Lord. 11 And it came to pass, when they saw that [there was] much money in the chest, that the king’s scribe and the high priest went up, and they tied up and counted the money that was found in the house of the Lord. 12 And they gave the money that had been collected into the hands of them that wrought the works, the overseers of the house of the Lord; and they gave it out to the carpenters and to the builders that wrought in the house of the Lord. 13 And to the masons, and to the hewers of stone, to purchase timber and hewn stone to repair the breaches of the house of the Lord, for all that was spent on the house of the Lord to repair [it]. 14 Only there were not to be made for the house of the Lord silver plates, studs, bowls, or trumpets, any vessel of gold or vessel of silver, of the money that was brought into the house of the Lord: 15 for they were to give it to the workmen, and they repaired therewith the house of the Lord. 16 Also they took no account of the men into whose hands they gave the money to give to the workmen, for they acted faithfully. 17 Money for a sin-offering, and money for a trespass-offering, whatever happened to be brought into the house of the Lord, went to the priests. 18 Then went up Azael king of Syria, and fought against Geth, and took it: and Azael set his face to go against Jerusalem. 19 And Joas king of Juda took all the holy things which Josaphat, and Joram, Ochozias, his fathers, and kings of Juda [had] consecrated, and what he had himself dedicated, and all the gold that was found in the treasures of the Lord’s house and the king’s house, and he sent [them] to Azael king of Syria; and he went up from Jerusalem. 20 And the rest of the acts of Joas, and all that he did, behold, [are] not these things written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Juda? 21 And his servants rose up and made a conspiracy, and smote Joas in the house of Mallo that is in Sela. 22 And Jezirchar the son of Jemuath, and Jezabuth Somer’s son, his servants, smote him, and he died; and they buried him with his fathers in the city of David: and Amessias his son reigned in his stead. ΥΙΟΣ ἑπτὰ ἐτῶν ᾿Ιωὰς ἐν τῷ βασιλεύειν αὐτόν. 2 ἐν ἔτει ἑβδόμῳ τῷ ᾿Ιοὺ ἐβασίλευσεν ᾿Ιωὰς καὶ τεσσαράκοντα ἔτη ἐβασίλευσεν ἐν ῾Ιερουσαλήμ, καὶ ὄνομα τῆς μητρὸς αὐτοῦ ᾿Αβιὰ ἐκ τῆς Βηρσαβεέ. 3 καὶ ἐποίησεν ᾿Ιωὰς τὸ εὐθὲς ἐνώπιον Κυρίου πάσας τὰς ἡμέρας, ἃς ἐφώτισεν αὐτὸν ᾿Ιωδαὲ ὁ ἱερεύς· 4 πλὴν τῶν ὑψηλῶν οὐ μετεστάθησαν, καὶ ἐκεῖ ἔτι ὁ λαὸς ἐθυσίαζε καὶ ἐθυμίων ἐν τοῖς ὑψηλοῖς. 5 καὶ εἶπεν ᾿Ιωὰς πρὸς τοὺς ἱερεῖς· πᾶν τὸ ἀργύριον τῶν ἁγίων τὸ εἰσοδιαζόμενον ἐν τῷ οἴκῳ Κυρίου, ἀργύριον συντιμήσεως, ἀνὴρ ἀργύριον λαβὼν συντιμήσεως, πᾶν ἀργύριον, ὃ ἐὰν ἀναβῇ ἐπὶ καρδίαν ἀνδρὸς ἐνεγκεῖν ἐν οἴκῳ Κυρίου, 6 λαβέτωσαν ἑαυτοῖς οἱ ἱερεῖς ἀνὴρ ἀπὸ τῆς πράσεως αὐτῶν καὶ αὐτοὶ κρατήσουσι τὸ βεδὲκ τοῦ οἴκου εἰς πάντα, οὗ ἐὰν εὑρεθῇ ἐκεῖ βεδέκ. 7 καὶ ἐγενήθη ἐν τῷ εἰκοστῷ καὶ τρίτῳ ἔτει τῷ βασιλεῖ ᾿Ιωὰς οὐκ ἐκραταίωσαν οἱ ἱερεῖς τὸ βεδὲκ τοῦ οἴκου. 8 καὶ ἐκάλεσεν ᾿Ιωὰς ὁ βασιλεὺς ᾿Ιωδαὲ τὸν ἱερέα καὶ τοὺς ἱερεῖς καὶ εἶπε πρὸς αὐτούς· τί ὅτι οὐκ ἐκραταιοῦτε τὸ βεδὲκ τοῦ οἴκου; καὶ νῦν μὴ λάβητε ἀργύριον ἀπὸ τῶν πράσεων ὑμῶν, ὅτι εἰς τὸ βεδὲκ τοῦ οἴκου δώσετε αὐτό. 9 καὶ συνεφώνησαν οἱ ἱερεῖς τοῦ μὴ λαβεῖν ἀργύριον παρὰ τοῦ λαοῦ καὶ τοῦ μὴ ἐνισχῦσαι τὸ βεδὲκ τοῦ οἴκου. 10 καὶ ἔλαβεν ᾿Ιωδαὲ ὁ ἱερεὺς κιβωτὸν μίαν καὶ ἔτρησε τρώγλην ἐπὶ τῆς σανίδος αὐτῆς καὶ ἔδωκεν αὐτὴν παρὰ ἀμμαζειβὶ ἐν τῷ οἴκῳ ἀνδρὸς οἴκου Κυρίου, καὶ ἔδωκαν οἱ ἱερεῖς οἱ φυλάσσοντες τὸν σταθμὸν πᾶν τὸ ἀργύριον τὸ εὑρεθὲν ἐν οἴκῳ Κυρίου. 11 καὶ ἐγένετο ὡς εἶδον ὅτι πολὺ τὸ ἀργύριον ἐν τῇ κιβωτῷ, καὶ ἀνέβη ὁ γραμματεὺς τοῦ βασιλέως καὶ ὁ ἱερεὺς ὁ μέγας καὶ ἔσφιγξαν καὶ ἠρίθμησαν τὸ ἀργύριον τὸ εὑρεθὲν ἐν οἴκῳ Κυρίου. 12 καὶ ἔδωκαν τὸ ἀργύριον τὸ ἑτοιμασθὲν ἐπὶ χεῖρας ποιούντων τὰ ἔργα τῶν ἐπισκόπων οἴκου Κυρίου, καὶ ἐξέδοσαν τοῖς τέκτοσι τῶν ξύλων καὶ τοῖς οἰκοδόμοις τοῖς ποιοῦσιν ἐν οἴκῳ Κυρίου 13 καὶ τοῖς τειχισταῖς καὶ τοῖς λατόμοις τῶν λίθων τοῦ κτήσασθαι ξύλα καὶ λίθους λατομητοὺς τοῦ κατασχεῖν τὸ βεδὲκ οἴκου Κυρίου εἰς πάντα, ὅσα ἐξωδιάσθη ἐπὶ τὸν οἶκον τοῦ κραταιῶσαι· 14 πλὴν οὐ ποιηθήσονται οἴκῳ Κυρίου θύραι ἀργυραῖ, ἧλοι, φιάλαι καὶ σάλπιγγες, πᾶν σκεῦος χρυσοῦν καὶ σκεῦος ἀργυροῦν, ἐκ τοῦ ἀργυρίου τοῦ εἰσενεχθέντος ἐν οἴκῳ Κυρίου, 15 ὅτι τοῖς ποιοῦσι τὰ ἔργα δώσουσιν αὐτό, καὶ ἐκραταίωσαν ἐν αὐτῷ τὸν οἶκον Κυρίου. 16 καὶ οὐκ ἐξελογίζοντο τοὺς ἄνδρας, οἷς ἐδίδουν τὸ ἀργύριον ἐπὶ χεῖρας αὐτῶν δοῦναι τοῖς ποιοῦσι τὰ ἔργα, ὅτι ἐν πίστει αὐτῶν ποιοῦσιν. 17 ἀργύριον περὶ ἁμαρτίας καὶ ἀργύριον περὶ πλημμελείας, ὅ,τι εἰσηνέχθη ἐν οἴκῳ Κυρίου, τοῖς ἱερεῦσιν ἐγένετο. 18 Τότε ἀνέβη ᾿Αζαὴλ βασιλεὺς Συρίας καὶ ἐπολέμησεν ἐπὶ Γὲθ καὶ προκατελάβετο αὐτήν. καὶ ἔταξεν ᾿Αζαὴλ τὸ πρόσωπον αὐτοῦ ἀναβῆναι ἐπὶ ῾Ιερουσαλήμ. 19 καὶ ἔλαβεν ᾿Ιωὰς βασιλεὺς ᾿Ιούδα πάντα τὰ ἅγια, ὅσα ἡγίασεν ᾿Ιωσαφὰτ καὶ ᾿Ιωρὰμ καὶ ᾿Οχοζίας οἱ πατέρες αὐτοῦ καὶ βασιλεῖς ᾿Ιούδα, καὶ τὰ ἅγια αὐτοῦ καὶ πᾶν τὸ χρυσίον τὸ εὑρεθὲν ἐν θησαυροῖς οἴκου Κυρίου καὶ οἴκου τοῦ βασιλέως καὶ ἀπέστειλε τῷ ᾿Αζαὴλ βασιλεῖ Συρίας, καὶ ἀνέβη ἀπὸ ῾Ιερουσαλήμ. 20 καὶ τὰ λοιπὰ τῶν λόγων ᾿Ιωὰς καὶ πάντα, ὅσα ἐποίησεν, οὐκ ἰδοὺ ταῦτα πάντα γεγραμμένα ἐπὶ βιβλίῳ λόγων τῶν ἡμερῶν τοῖς βασιλεῦσιν ᾿Ιούδα; 21 καὶ ἀνέστησαν οἱ δοῦλοι αὐτοῦ καὶ ἔδησαν πάντα σύνδεσμον καὶ ἐπάταξαν τὸν ᾿Ιωὰς ἐν οἴκῳ Μαλλὼ τῷ ἐν Γααλὰ 22 καὶ ᾿Ιεζιχὰρ υἱὸς ᾿Ιεμουὰθ καὶ ᾿Ιεζεβοὺθ ὁ υἱὸς αὐτοῦ Σωμὴρ οἱ δοῦλοι αὐτοῦ ἐπάταξαν αὐτόν, καὶ ἀπέθανε· καὶ ἔθαψαν αὐτὸν μετὰ τῶν πατέρων αὐτοῦ ἐν πόλει Δαυίδ, καὶ ἐβασίλευσεν ᾿Αμεσσίας υἱὸς αὐτοῦ ἀντ᾿ αὐτοῦ.
