1 In the second year of Joas the son of Joachaz king of Israel, did Amessias also the son of Joas the king of Juda begin to reign. 2 Twenty and five years old was he when he began to reign, and he reigned twenty and nine years in Jerusalem: and his mother’s name [was] Joadim of Jerusalem. 3 And he did that which was right in the sight of the Lord, but not as David his father: he did according to all things that his father Joas did. 4 Only he removed not the high places: as yet the people sacrificed and burnt incense on the high places. 5 And it came to pass when the kingdom was established in his hand, that he slew his servants that had slain the king his father. 6 But he slew not the sons of those that had slain him; according as it is written in the book of the laws of Moses, as the Lord gave commandment, saying, The fathers shall not be put to death for the children, and the children shall not be put to death for the fathers; but every one shall die for his own sins. 7 He smote of Edom ten thousand in the valley of salt, and took the Rock in the war, and called its name Jethoel until this day. 8 Then Amessias sent messengers to Joas son of Joachaz son of Ju king of Israel, saying, Come, let us look one another in the face. 9 And Joas the king of Israel sent to Amessias king of Juda, saying, The thistle that was in Libanus sent to the cedar that was in Libanus, saying, Give my daughter to thy son to wife: and the wild beasts of the field that were in Libanus passed by and trod down the thistle. 10 Thou hast smitten and wounded Edom, and thy heart has lifted thee up: stay at home and glorify thyself; for wherefore art thou quarrelsome to thy hurt? So [both] thou wilt fall and Juda with thee. 11 Nevertheless Amessias hearkened not: so Joas king of Israel went up, and he and Amessias king of Juda looked one another in the face in Baethsamys of Juda. 12 And Juda was overthrown before Israel, and [every] man fled to his tent. 13 And Joas king of Israel took Amessias the son of Joas the son of Ochozias, in Baethsamys; and he came to Jerusalem, and broke down the wall of Jerusalem, [beginning] at the gate of Ephraim as far as the gate of the corner, four hundred cubits. 14 And he took the gold, ad the silver, and all the vessels that were found in the house of the Lord, and in the treasures of the king’s house, and the hostages, and returned to Samaria. 15 And the rest of the acts of Joas, [even] all that he did in his might, how he warred with Amessias king of Juda, are not these things written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Israel? 16 And Joas slept with his fathers, and was buried in Samaria with the kings of Israel; and Jeroboam his son reigned in his stead. 17 And Amessias the son of Joas king of Juda lived after the death of Joas son of Joachaz king of Israel fifteen years. 18 And the rest of the acts of Amessias, and all that he did, [are] not these written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Juda? 19 And they formed a conspiracy against him in Jerusalem, and he fled to Lachis: and they sent after him to Lachis, and slew him there. 20 And they brought him upon horses; and he was buried in Jerusalem with his fathers in the city of David. 21 And all the people of Juda took Azarias, and he was sixteen years old, and made him king in the room of his father Amessias. 22 He built Aeloth, and restored it to Juda, after the king slept with his fathers. 23 In the fifteenth year of Amessias son of Joas king of Juda began Jeroboam son of Joas to reign over Israel in Samaria forty and one years. 24 And he did that which was evil in the sight of the Lord: he departed not from all the sins of Jeroboam the son of Nabat, who led Israel to sin. 25 He recovered the coast of Israel from the entering in of Aemath to the sea of Araba, according to the word of the Lord God of Israel, which he spoke by his servant Jonas the son of Amathi, the prophet of Gethchopher. 26 For the Lord saw [that] the affliction of Israel [was] very bitter, and that they were few in number, straitened and in want, and destitute, and Israel had no helper. 27 And the Lord said that he would not blot out the seed of Israel from under heaven; so he delivered them by the hand of Jeroboam the son of Joas. 28 And the rest of the acts of Jeroboam and all that he did, and his mighty deeds, which he achieved in war, and how he recovered Damascus and Aemath to Juda in Israel, [are] not these things written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Israel? 29 And Jeroboam slept with his fathers, even with the kings of Israel; and Zacharias his son reigned in his stead. ΕΝ ἔτει δευτέρῳ τῷ ᾿Ιωὰς υἱῷ ᾿Ιωάχαζ βασιλεῖ ᾿Ισραὴλ καὶ ἐβασίλευσεν ᾿Αμεσσίας υἱὸς ᾿Ιωὰς βασιλεὺς ᾿Ιούδα. 2 υἱὸς εἴκοσι καὶ πέντε ἐτῶν ἦν ἐν τῷ βασιλεύειν αὐτὸν καὶ εἴκοσι καὶ ἐννέα ἔτη ἐβασίλευσεν ἐν ῾Ιερουσαλήμ, καὶ ὄνομα τῆς μητρὸς αὐτοῦ ᾿Ιωαδὶμ ἐξ ῾Ιερουσαλήμ. 3 καὶ ἐποίησε τὸ εὐθὲς ἐν ὀφθαλμοῖς Κυρίου, πλὴν οὐχ ὡς Δαυὶδ ὁ πατὴρ αὐτοῦ· κατὰ πάντα ὅσα ἐποίησεν ᾿Ιωὰς ὁ πατὴρ αὐτοῦ, ἐποίησε· 4 πλὴν τὰ ὑψηλὰ οὐκ ἐξῇρεν, ἔτι ὁ λαὸς ἐθυσίαζε καὶ ἐθυμίων ἐν τοῖς ὑψηλοῖς. 5 καὶ ἐγένετο ὅτε κατίσχυεν ἡ βασιλεία ἐν χειρὶ αὐτοῦ, καὶ ἐπάταξε τοὺς δούλους αὐτοῦ τοὺς πατάξαντας τὸν πατέρα αὐτοῦ· 6 καὶ τοὺς υἱοὺς τῶν παταξάντων οὐκ ἐθανάτωσε, καθὼς γέγραπται ἐν βιβλίῳ νόμων Μωυσῆ, ὡς ἐνετείλατο Κύριος λέγων· οὐκ ἀποθανοῦνται πατέρες ὑπὲρ υἱῶν, καὶ υἱοὶ οὐκ ἀποθανοῦνται ὑπὲρ πατέρων, ὅτι ἀλλ᾿ ἢ ἕκαστος ἐν ταῖς ἁμαρτίαις αὐτοῦ ἀποθανεῖται. 7 αὐτὸς ἐπάταξε τὴν ᾿Εδὼμ ἐν Γαιμελὲ δέκα χιλιάδας καὶ συνέλαβε τὴν Πέτραν ἐν τῷ πολέμῳ καὶ ἐκάλεσε τὸ ὄνομα αὐτῆς Καθοὴλ ἕως τῆς ἡμέρας ταύτης. 8 τότε ἀπέστειλεν ᾿Αμεσσίας ἀγγέλους πρὸς ᾿Ιωὰς υἱὸν ᾿Ιωάχαζ υἱοῦ ᾿Ιοὺ βασιλέως ᾿Ισραὴλ λέγων· δεῦρο ὀφθῶμεν προσώποις. 9 καὶ ἀπέστειλεν ᾿Ιωὰς βασιλεὺς ᾿Ισραὴλ πρὸς ᾿Αμεσσίαν βασιλέα ᾿Ιούδα λέγων· ὁ ἄκαν ὁ ἐν τῷ Λιβάνῳ ἀπέστειλε πρὸς τὴν κέδρον τὴν ἐν τῷ Λιβάνῳ λέγων· δὸς τὴν θυγατέρα σου τῷ υἱῷ μου εἰς γυναῖκα· καὶ διῆλθον τὰ θηρία τοῦ ἀγροῦ τὰ ἐν τῷ Λιβάνῳ καὶ συνεπάτησαν τὴν ἄκανα. 10 τύπτων ἐπάταξας τὴν ᾿Ιδουμαίαν, καὶ ἐπῇρέ σε καρδία σου· ἐνδοξάσθητι καθήμενος ἐν τῷ οἴκῳ σου, καὶ ἱνατί ἐρίζεις ἐν κακίᾳ σου; καὶ πεσῇ σὺ καὶ ᾿Ιούδας μετὰ σοῦ. 11 καὶ οὐκ ἤκουσεν ᾿Αμεσσίας. καὶ ἀνέβη ᾿Ιωὰς βασιλεὺς ᾿Ισραήλ, καὶ ὤφθησαν προσώποις αὐτὸς καὶ ᾿Αμεσσίας βασιλεὺς ᾿Ιούδα ἐν Βαιθσαμὺς τῇ τοῦ ᾿Ιούδα· 12 καὶ ἔπταισεν ᾿Ιούδας ἀπὸ προσώπου ᾿Ισραήλ, καὶ ἔφυγεν ἀνὴρ εἰς τὸ σκήνωμα αὐτοῦ· 13 καὶ τὸν ᾿Αμεσσίαν υἱὸν ᾿Ιωὰς υἱοῦ ᾿Οχοζίου συνέλαβεν ᾿Ιωὰς βασιλεὺς ᾿Ισραὴλ ἐν Βαιθσαμύς. καὶ ἦλθεν εἰς ῾Ιερουσαλὴμ καὶ καθεῖλεν ἐν τῷ τείχει ῾Ιερουσαλὴμ ἐν τῇ πύλῃ ᾿Εφραὶμ ἕως πύλης τῆς γωνίας τετρακοσίους πήχεις· 14 καὶ ἔλαβεν τὸ χρυσίον καὶ τὸ ἀργύριον καὶ πάντα τὰ σκεύη τὰ εὑρεθέντα ἐν οἴκῳ Κυρίου καὶ ἐν θησαυροῖς οἴκου τοῦ βασιλέως καὶ τοὺς υἱοὺς τῶν συμμίξεων καὶ ἀπέστρεψεν εἰς Σαμάρειαν. 15 καὶ τὰ λοιπὰ τῶν λόγων ᾿Ιωάς, ὅσα ἐποίησεν ἐν δυναστείᾳ αὐτοῦ, ἃ ἐπολέμησε μετὰ ᾿Αμεσσίου βασιλέως ᾿Ιούδα, οὐχὶ ταῦτα γεγραμμένα ἐπὶ βιβλίῳ λόγων τῶν ἡμερῶν τοῖς βασιλεῦσιν ᾿Ισραήλ; 16 καὶ ἐκοιμήθη ᾿Ιωὰς μετὰ τῶν πατέρων αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐτάφη ἐν Σαμαρείᾳ μετὰ τῶν βασιλέων ᾿Ισραήλ, καὶ ἐβασίλευσεν ῾Ιεροβοὰμ υἱὸς αὐτοῦ ἀντ᾿ αὐτοῦ. 17 καὶ ἔζησεν ᾿Αμεσσίας υἱὸς ᾿Ιωὰς βασιλεὺς ᾿Ιούδα μετὰ τὸ ἀποθανεῖν ᾿Ιωὰς υἱὸν ᾿Ιωάχαζ βασιλέα ᾿Ισραὴλ πεντεκαίδεκα ἔτη. 18 καὶ τὰ λοιπὰ τῶν λόγων ᾿Αμεσσίου καὶ πάντα, ὅσα ἐποίησεν, οὐχὶ ταῦτα γεγραμμένα ἐπὶ βιβλίῳ λόγων τῶν ἡμερῶν τοῖς βασιλεῦσιν ᾿Ιούδα; 19 καὶ συνεστράφησαν ἐπ᾿ αὐτὸν σύστρεμμα ἐν ῾Ιερουσαλήμ, καὶ ἔφυγεν εἰς Λαχίς· καὶ ἀπέστειλαν ὀπίσω αὐτοῦ εἰς Λαχὶς καὶ ἐθανάτωσαν αὐτὸν ἐκεῖ. 20 καὶ ᾖραν αὐτὸν ἐφ᾿ ἵππων, καὶ ἐτάφη ἐν ῾Ιερουσαλὴμ μετὰ τῶν πατέρων αὐτοῦ ἐν πόλει Δαυίδ. 21 καὶ ἔλαβε πᾶς ὁ λαὸς ᾿Ιούδα τὸν ᾿Αζαρίαν —καὶ αὐτὸς υἱὸς ἑκκαίδεκα ἐτῶν— καὶ ἐβασίλευσαν αὐτὸν ἀντὶ τοῦ πατρὸς αὐτοῦ ᾿Αμεσσίου. 22 αὐτὸς ᾠκοδόμησε τὴν Αἰλὼθ καὶ ἐπέστρεψεν αὐτὴν τῷ ᾿Ιούδᾳ μετὰ τὸ κοιμηθῆναι τὸν βασιλέα μετὰ τῶν πατέρων αὐτοῦ. 23 ᾿Εν ἔτει πεντεκαιδεκάτῳ τοῦ ᾿Αμεσσίου υἱῷ ᾿Ιωὰς βασιλεῖ ᾿Ιούδα ἐβασίλευσεν ῾Ιεροβοὰμ υἱὸς ᾿Ιωὰς ἐπὶ ᾿Ισραὴλ ἐν Σαμαρείᾳ τεσσαράκοντα καὶ ἓν ἔτος. 24 καὶ ἐποίησε τὸ πονηρὸν ἐνώπιον Κυρίου· οὐκ ἀπέστη ἀπὸ πασῶν ἁμαρτιῶν ῾Ιεροβοὰμ υἱοῦ Ναβάτ, ὃς ἐξήμαρτε τὸν ᾿Ισραήλ. 25 αὐτὸς ἀπέστησε τὸ ὅριον ᾿Ισραὴλ ἀπὸ εἰσόδου Αἰμὰθ ἕως τῆς θαλάσσης τῆς ῎Αραβα κατὰ τὸ ῥῆμα Κυρίου Θεοῦ ᾿Ισραήλ, ὃ ἐλάλησεν ἐν χειρὶ δούλου αὐτοῦ ᾿Ιωνᾶ υἱοῦ ᾿Αμαθὶ τοῦ προφήτου τοῦ ἐν Γεθχοφέρ. 26 ὅτι εἶδε Κύριος τὴν ταπείνωσιν ᾿Ισραὴλ πικρὰν σφόδρα καὶ ὀλιγοστοὺς συνεχομένους καὶ ἐσπανισμένους καὶ ἐγκαταλελειμμένους, καὶ οὐκ ἦν ὁ βοηθῶν τῷ ᾿Ισραήλ. 27 καὶ οὐκ ἐλάλησε Κύριος ἐξαλεῖψαι τὸ σπέρμα ᾿Ισραὴλ ὑποκάτωθεν τοῦ οὐρανοῦ καὶ ἔσωσεν αὐτοὺς διὰ χειρὸς ῾Ιεροβοὰμ υἱοῦ ᾿Ιωάς. 28 καὶ τὰ λοιπὰ τῶν λόγων ῾Ιεροβοὰμ καὶ πάντα, ὅσα ἐποίησε, καὶ αἱ δυναστεῖαι αὐτοῦ, ὅσα ἐπολέμησε καὶ ὅσα ἐπέστρεψε τὴν Δαμασκὸν καὶ τὴν Αἰμὰθ τῷ ᾿Ιούδᾳ ἐν ᾿Ισραήλ, οὐχὶ ταῦτα γεγραμμένα ἐπὶ βιβλίῳ λόγων τῶν ἡμερῶν τοῖς βασιλεῦσιν ᾿Ισραήλ; 29 καὶ ἐκοιμήθη ῾Ιεροβοὰμ μετὰ τῶν πατέρων αὐτοῦ μετὰ βασιλέων ᾿Ισραήλ, καὶ ἐβασίλευσε Ζαχαρίας υἱὸς αὐτοῦ ἀντ᾿ αὐτοῦ.
