1 In the twelfth year of Achaz king of Juda began Osee the son of Ela to reign in Samaria over Israel nine years. 2 And he did evil in the eyes of the Lord, only not as the kings of Israel that were before him. 3 Against him came up Salamanassar king of the Assyrians; and Osee became his servant, and rendered him tribute. 4 And the king of the Assyrians found iniquity in Osee, in that he sent messengers to Segor king of Egypt, and brought not a tribute to the king of the Assyrians in that year: and the king of the Assyrians besieged him, and bound him in the prison-house. 5 And the king of the Assyrians went up against all the land, and went up to Samaria, and besieged it [for] three years. 6 In the ninth year of Osee the king of the Assyrians took Samaria, and carried Israel away to the Assyrians, and settled them in Alae, and in Abor, [near] the rivers of Gozan, and [in] the mountains of the Medes. 7 For it came to pass that the children of Israel [had] transgressed against the Lord their God, who had brought them up out of the land of Egypt, from under the hand of Pharao king of Egypt, and they feared other gods, 8 and walked in the statutes of the nations which the Lord cast out before the face of the children of Israel, and of the kings of Israel as many as did [such things], 9 and [in those] of the children of Israel as many as secretly practised customs, not as [they should have done], against the Lord their God: 10 and they built for themselves high places in all their cities, from the tower of the watchmen to the fortified city. And they made for themselves pillars and groves on every high hill, and under every shady tree. 11 And burned incense there on all high places, as the nations [did] whom the Lord removed from before them, and dealt with familiar spirits, and they carved [images] to provoke the Lord to anger. 12 And they served the idols, of which the Lord said to them, Ye shall not do this thing [against] the Lord. 13 And the Lord testified against Israel and against Juda, even by the hand of all his prophets, [and] of every seer, saying, Turn ye from your evil ways, and keep my commandments and my ordinances, and all the law which I commanded your fathers, [and] all that I sent to them by the hand of my servants the prophets. 14 But they hearkened not, and made their neck harder than the neck of their fathers. 15 And they kept not any of his testimonies which he charged them; and they walked after vanities, and became vain, and after the nations round about them, concerning which the Lord had charged them not to do accordingly. 16 They forsook the commandments of the Lord their God, and made themselves graven images, [even] two heifers, and they made groves, and worshipped all the host of heaven, and served Baal. 17 And they caused their sons and their daughters to pass through the fire, and used divinations and auspices, and sold themselves to work wickedness in the sight of the Lord, to provoke him. 18 And the Lord was very angry with Israel, and removed them out of his sight; and there was only left the tribe of Juda quite alone. 19 Nay even Juda kept not the commandments of the Lord their God, but they walked according to the customs of Israel which they practised, and rejected the Lord. 20 And the Lord was angry with the whole seed of Israel, and troubled them, and gave them into the hand of them that spoiled them, until he cast them out of his presence. 21 Forasmuch as Israel revolted from the house of David, and they made Jeroboam the son of Nabat king: and Jeroboam drew off Israel from following the Lord, and led them to sin a great sin. 22 And the children of Israel walked in all the sin of Jeroboam which he committed; they departed not from it, 23 until the Lord removed Israel from his presence, as the Lord spoke by all his servants the prophets; and Israel was removed from off their land to the Assyrians until this day. 24 And the king of Assyria brought from Babylon the men of Chutha, [and men] from Aia, and from Aemath, and Seppharvaim, and they were settled in the cities of Samaria in the place of the children of Israel: and they inherited Samaria, and were settled in its cities. 25 And it was so at the beginning of their establishment there [that] they feared not the Lord, and the Lord sent lions among them, and they slew some of them. 26 And they spoke to the king of the Assyrians, saying, The nations whom thou hast removed and substituted in the cities of Samaria [for the Israelites], know not the manner of the God of the land: and he has sent the lions against them, and, behold, they are slaying them, because they know not the manner of the God of the land. 27 And the king of the Assyrians commanded, saying, Bring some [Israelites] thence, and let them go and dwell there, and they shall teach them the manner of the God of the land. 28 And they brought one of the priests whom they had removed from Samaria, and he settled in Baethel, and taught them how they should fear the Lord. 29 But the nations made each their own gods, and put them in the house of the high places which the Samaritans [had] made, each nation in the cities in which they dwelt. 30 And the men of Babylon made Socchoth Benith, and the men of Chuth made Ergel, and the men of Haemath made Asimath. 31 And the Evites made Eblazer and Tharthac, and the [inhabitant] of Seppharvaim [did evil] when they burnt their sons in the fire to Adramelech and Anemelech, the gods of Seppharvaim. 32 And they feared the Lord, yet they established their abominations in the houses of the high places which they made in Samaria, each nation in the city in which they dwelt: and they feared the Lord, and they made for themselves priests of the high places, and sacrificed for themselves in the house of the high places. 33 And they feared the Lord, and served their gods according to the manner of the nations, whence [their lords] brought them. 34 Until this day they did according to their manner: they fear [the Lord], and they do according to their customs, and according to their manner, and according to the law, and according to the commandment which the Lord commanded the sons of Jacob, whose name he made Israel. 35 And the Lord made a covenant with them, and charged them, saying, Ye shall not fear other gods, neither shall ye worship them, nor serve them, nor sacrifice to them: 36 but only to the Lord, who brought you up out of the land of Egypt with great strength and with a high arm: him shall ye fear, and him shall ye worship; to him shall ye sacrifice. 37 Ye shall observe continually the ordinances, and the judgments, and the law, and the commandments which he wrote for you to do; and ye shall not fear other gods. 38 Neither shall ye forget the covenant which he made with you: and ye shall not fear other gods. 39 But ye shall fear the Lord your God, and he shall deliver you from all your enemies. 40 Neither shall ye comply with their practice, which they follow. 41 So these nations feared the Lord, and served their graven images: yea, their sons and their son’s sons do until this day even as their fathers did. ΕΝ ἔτει δωδεκάτῳ τοῦ ῎Αχαζ βασιλέως ᾿Ιούδα ἐβασίλευσεν ῾Ωσηὲ υἱὸς ᾿Ηλὰ ἐν Σαμαρείᾳ ἐπὶ ᾿Ισραὴλ ἐννέα ἔτη. 2 καὶ ἐποίησε τὸ πονηρὸν ἐν ὀφθαλμοῖς Κυρίου, πλὴν οὐχ ὡς οἱ βασιλεῖς ᾿Ισραήλ, οἳ ἦσαν ἔμπροσθεν αὐτοῦ. 3 ἐπ᾿ αὐτὸν ἀνέβη Σαλαμανασὰρ βασιλεὺς ᾿Ασσυρίων, καὶ ἐγενήθη αὐτῷ ῾Ωσηὲ δοῦλος καὶ ἐπέστρεψεν αὐτῷ μαναά. 4 καὶ εὗρε βασιλεὺς ᾿Ασσυρίων ἐν τῷ ῾Ωσηὲ ἀδικίαν, ὅτι ἀπέστειλεν ἀγγέλους πρὸς Σηγὼρ βασιλέα Αἰγύπτου καὶ οὐκ ἤνεγκε μαναὰ τῷ βασιλεῖ ᾿Ασσυρίων ἐν τῷ ἐνιαυτῷ ἐκείνῳ, καὶ ἐπολιόρκησεν αὐτὸν ὁ βασιλεὺς ᾿Ασσυρίων καὶ ἔδησεν αὐτὸν ἐν οἴκῳ φυλακῆς. 5 καὶ ἀνέβη ὁ βασιλεὺς ᾿Ασσυρίων ἐν πάσῃ τῇ γῇ καὶ ἀνέβη εἰς Σαμάρειαν, καὶ ἐπολιόρκησεν ἐπ᾿ αὐτὴν τρία ἔτη. 6 ἐν ἔτει ἐνάτῳ ῾Ωσηὲ συνέλαβε βασιλεὺς ᾿Ασσυρίων τὴν Σαμάρειαν καὶ ἀπῴκισεν ᾿Ισραὴλ εἰς ᾿Ασσυρίους καὶ κατῴκισεν αὐτοὺς ἐν ᾿Αλαὲ καὶ ἐν ᾿Αβὼρ ποταμοῖς Γωζάν, καὶ ὄρη Μήδων. 7 καὶ ἐγένετο ὅτι ἥμαρτον οἱ υἱοὶ ᾿Ισραὴλ τῷ Κυρίῳ Θεῷ αὐτῶν τῷ ἀναγαγόντι αὐτοὺς ἐκ γῆς Αἰγύπτου ὑποκάτωθεν χειρὸς Φαραὼ βασιλέως Αἰγύπτου καὶ ἐφοβήθησαν θεοὺς ἑτέρους 8 καὶ ἐπορεύθησαν τοῖς δικαιώμασι τῶν ἐθνῶν, ὧν ἐξῇρε Κύριος ἐκ προσώπου υἱῶν ᾿Ισραήλ, καὶ οἱ βασιλεῖς ᾿Ισραήλ, ὅσοι ἐποίησαν, 9 καὶ ὅσοι ἠμφιέσαντο οἱ υἱοὶ ᾿Ισραὴλ λόγους οὐχ οὕτως κατὰ Κυρίου Θεοῦ αὐτῶν. καὶ ᾠκοδόμησαν ἑαυτοῖς ὑψηλὰ ἐν πάσαις ταῖς πόλεσιν αὐτῶν ἀπὸ πύργου φυλασσόντων ἕως πόλεως ὀχυρᾶς 10 καὶ ἐστήλωσαν ἑαυτοῖς στήλας καὶ ἄλση ἐπὶ παντὶ βουνῷ ὑψηλῷ καὶ ὑποκάτω παντὸς ξύλου ἀλσώδους 11 καὶ ἐθυμίασαν ἐκεῖ ἐν πᾶσιν ὑψηλοῖς καθὼς τὰ ἔθνη, ἃ ἀπῴκισε Κύριος ἐκ προσώπου αὐτῶν, καὶ ἐποίησαν κοινωνοὺς καὶ ἐχάραξαν τοῦ παροργίσαι τὸν Κύριον 12 καὶ ἐλάτρευσαν τοῖς εἰδώλοις, οἷς εἶπε Κύριος αὐτοῖς· οὐ ποιήσετε τὸ ῥῆμα τοῦτο τῷ Κυρίῳ. 13 καὶ διεμαρτύρατο Κύριος ἐν τῷ ᾿Ισραὴλ καὶ ἐν τῷ ᾿Ιούδᾳ καὶ ἐν χειρὶ πάντων τῶν προφητῶν αὐτοῦ, παντὸς ὁρῶντος λέγων· ἀποστράφητε ἀπὸ τῶν ὁδῶν ὑμῶν τῶν πονηρῶν καὶ φυλάξατε τὰς ἐντολάς μου καὶ τὰ δικαιώματά μου καὶ πάντα τὸν νόμον, ὃν ἐνετειλάμην τοῖς πατράσιν ὑμῶν, ὅσα ἀπέστειλα αὐτοῖς ἐν χειρὶ τῶν δούλων μου τῶν προφητῶν. 14 καὶ οὐκ ἤκουσαν καὶ ἐσκλήρυναν τὸν νῶτον αὐτῶν ὑπὲρ τὸν νῶτον τῶν πατέρων αὐτῶν 15 καὶ τὰ μαρτύρια αὐτοῦ, ὅσα διεμαρτύρατο αὐτοῖς, οὐκ ἐφύλαξαν καὶ ἐπορεύθησαν ὀπίσω τῶν ματαίων καὶ ἐματαιώθησαν, καὶ ὀπίσω τῶν ἐθνῶν τῶν περικύκλῳ αὐτῶν, ὧν ἐνετείλατο Κύριος αὐτοῖς μὴ ποιῆσαι κατὰ ταῦτα. 16 ἐγκατέλιπον τὰς ἐντολὰς Κυρίου Θεοῦ αὐτῶν καὶ ἐποίησαν ἑαυτοῖς χώνευμα δύο δαμάλεις καὶ ἐποίησαν ἄλση καὶ προσεκύνησαν πάσῃ τῇ δυνάμει τοῦ οὐρανοῦ καὶ ἐλάτρευσαν τῷ Βάαλ 17 καὶ διῆγον τοὺς υἱοὺς αὐτῶν καὶ τὰς θυγατέρας αὐτῶν ἐν πυρὶ καὶ ἐμαντεύοντο μαντείας καὶ οἰωνίζοντο καὶ ἐπράθησαν τοῦ ποιῆσαι τὸ πονηρὸν ἐν ὀφθαλμοῖς Κυρίου παροργίσαι αὐτόν. 18 καὶ ἐθυμώθη Κύριος σφόδρα ἐν τῷ ᾿Ισραήλ, καὶ ἀπέστησεν αὐτοὺς ἀπὸ τοῦ προσώπου αὐτοῦ, καὶ οὐχ ὑπελείφθη πλὴν φυλὴ ᾿Ιούδα μονωτάτη. 19 καί γε ᾿Ιούδας οὐκ ἐφύλαξε τὰς ἐντολὰς Κυρίου τοῦ Θεοῦ αὐτῶν καὶ ἐπορεύθησαν ἐν τοῖς δικαιώμασιν ᾿Ισραήλ, οἷς ἐποίησαν, 20 καὶ ἀπεώσαντο τὸν Κύριον, καὶ ἐθυμώθη Κύριος παντὶ σπέρματι ᾿Ισραὴλ καὶ ἐσάλευσεν αὐτοὺς καὶ ἔδωκεν αὐτοὺς ἐν χειρὶ διαρπαζόντων αὐτούς, ἕως οὗ ἀπέρριψεν αὐτοὺς ἀπὸ προσώπου αὐτοῦ. 21 ὅτι πλὴν ᾿Ισραὴλ ἐπάνωθεν οἴκου Δαυὶδ καὶ ἐβασίλευσαν τὸν ῾Ιεροβοὰμ υἱὸν Ναβάτ, καὶ ἐξέωσεν ῾Ιεροβοὰμ τὸν ᾿Ισραὴλ ἐξόπισθεν Κυρίου καὶ ἐξήμαρτεν αὐτοὺς ἁμαρτίαν μεγάλην. 22 καὶ ἐπορεύθησαν οἱ υἱοὶ ᾿Ισραὴλ ἐν πάσῃ ἁμαρτίᾳ ῾Ιεροβοάμ, ᾗ ἐποίησεν, οὐκ ἀπέστησαν ἀπ᾿ αὐτῆς, 23 ἕως οὗ μετέστησε Κύριος τὸν ᾿Ισραὴλ ἀπὸ προσώπου αὐτοῦ, καθὼς ἐλάλησε Κύριος ἐν χειρὶ πάντων τῶν δούλων αὐτοῦ τῶν προφητῶν, καὶ ἀπῳκίσθη ᾿Ισραὴλ ἐπάνωθεν τῆς γῆς αὐτοῦ εἰς ᾿Ασσυρίους ἕως τῆς ἡμέρας ταύτης. 24 Καὶ ἤγαγε βασιλεὺς ᾿Ασσυρίων ἐκ Βαβυλῶνος τὸν ἐκ Χουθὰ ἀπὸ ᾿Αϊὰ καὶ ἀπὸ Αἰμὰθ καὶ Σεπφαρουαΐμ, καὶ κατῳκίσθησαν ἐν πόλεσι Σαμαρείας ἀντὶ τῶν υἱῶν ᾿Ισραὴλ καὶ ἐκληρονόμησαν τὴν Σαμάρειαν καὶ κατῴκισαν ἐν ταῖς πόλεσιν αὐτῆς. 25 καὶ ἐγένετο ἐν ἀρχῇ τῆς καθέδρας αὐτῶν οὐκ ἐφοβήθησαν τὸν Κύριον, καὶ ἀπέστειλε Κύριος ἐν αὐτοῖς τοὺς λέοντας, καὶ ἦσαν ἀποκτέννοντες ἐν αὐτοῖς. 26 καὶ εἶπαν τῷ βασιλεῖ ᾿Ασσυρίων λέγοντες· τὰ ἔθνη, ἃ ἀπῴκισας καὶ ἀντεκάθισας ἐν πόλεσι Σαμαρείας, οὐκ ἔγνωσαν τὸ κρίμα τοῦ Θεοῦ τῆς γῆς, καὶ ἀπέστειλεν εἰς αὐτοὺς τοὺς λέοντας, καὶ ἰδού εἰσι θανατοῦντες αὐτούς, καθότι οὐκ οἴδασι τὸ κρίμα τοῦ Θεοῦ τῆς γῆς, 27 καὶ ἐνετείλατο ὁ βασιλεὺς ᾿Ασσυρίων λέγων· ἀπάγετε ἐκεῖθεν καὶ πορευέσθωσαν καὶ κατοικήτωσαν ἐκεῖ καὶ φωτιοῦσιν αὐτοὺς τὸ κρίμα τοῦ Θεοῦ τῆς γῆς. 28 καὶ ἤγαγον ἕνα τῶν ἱερέων, ὧν ἀπῴκισαν ἀπὸ Σαμαρείας, καὶ ἐκάθισεν ἐν Βαιθὴλ καὶ ἦν φωτίζων αὐτοὺς πῶς φοβηθῶσι τὸν Κύριον. 29 καὶ ἦσαν ποιοῦντες ἔθνη ἔθνη θεοὺς αὐτῶν καὶ ἔθηκαν ἐν οἴκῳ τῶν ὑψηλῶν, ὧν ἐποίησαν οἱ Σαμαρεῖται, ἔθνη ἔθνη ἐν ταῖς πόλεσιν αὐτῶν, ἐν αἷς κατῴκουν. 30 καὶ οἱ ἄνδρες Βαβυλῶνος ἐποίησαν τὴν Σωκχὼθ Βαινίθ, καὶ οἱ ἄνδρες Χοὺθ ἐποίησαν τὴν Νηριγέλ, καὶ οἱ ἄνδρες Αἰμὰθ ἐποίησαν τὴν ᾿Ασιμάθ, 31 καὶ οἱ Εὐαῖοι ἐποίησαν τὴν ᾿Εβλαζὲρ καὶ τὴν Θαρθάκ, καὶ οἱ Σεπφαρουαΐμ κατέκαιον τοὺς υἱοὺς αὐτῶν ἐν πυρὶ τῷ ᾿Αδραμέλεχ καὶ ᾿Ανημελέχ, θεοῖς Σεπφαρουαΐμ. 32 καὶ ἦσαν φοβούμενοι τὸν Κύριον καὶ κατῴκισαν τὰ βδελύγματα αὐτῶν ἐν τοῖς οἴκοις τῶν ὑψηλῶν, ἃ ἐποίησαν ἐν Σαμαρείᾳ, ἔθνος ἔθνος ἐν πόλει, ἐν ᾗ κατῴκουν ἐν αὐτῇ· καὶ ἦσαν φοβούμενοι τὸν Κύριον καὶ ἐποίησαν ἑαυτοῖς ἱερεῖς τῶν ὑψηλῶν καὶ ἐποίησαν ἐν οἴκῳ τῶν ὑψηλῶν. 33 καὶ τὸν Κύριον ἐφοβοῦντο καὶ τοῖς θεοῖς αὐτῶν ἐλάτρευον κατὰ τὸ κρίμα τῶν ἐθνῶν, ὅθεν ἀπῴκισαν αὐτοὺς ἐκεῖθεν. 34 ἕως τῆς ἡμέρας ταύτης αὐτοὶ ἐποίουν κατὰ τὸ κρίμα αὐτῶν· αὐτοὶ φοβοῦνται καὶ αὐτοὶ ποιοῦσι κατὰ τὰ δικαιώματα αὐτῶν καὶ κατὰ τὴν κρίσιν αὐτῶν καὶ κατὰ τὸν νόμον καὶ κατὰ τὴν ἐντολήν, ἣν ἐνετείλατο Κύριος τοῖς υἱοῖς ᾿Ιακώβ, οὗ ἔθηκε τὸ ὄνομα αὐτοῦ ᾿Ισραήλ, 35 καὶ διέθετο Κύριος μετ᾿ αὐτῶν διαθήκην καὶ ἐνετείλατο αὐτοῖς λέγων· οὐ φοβηθήσεσθε θεοὺς ἑτέρους καὶ οὐ προσκυνήσετε αὐτοῖς καὶ οὐ λατρεύσετε αὐτοῖς καὶ οὐ θυσιάσετε αὐτοῖς, 36 ὅτι ἀλλ᾿ ἢ τῷ Κυρίῳ, ὃς ἀνήγαγεν ὑμᾶς ἐκ γῆς Αἰγύπτου ἐν ἰσχύϊ μεγάλῃ καὶ ἐν βραχίονι ὑψηλῷ, αὐτὸν φοβηθήσεσθε καὶ αὐτῷ προσκυνήσετε, αὐτῷ θύσετε· 37 καὶ τὰ δικαιώματα καὶ τὰ κρίματα καὶ τὸν νόμον καὶ τὰς ἐντολάς, ἃς ἔγραψεν ὑμῖν ποιεῖν, φυλάσσεσθε πάσας τὰς ἡμέρας καὶ οὐ φοβηθήσεσθε θεοὺς ἑτέρους· 38 καὶ τὴν διαθήκην, ἣν διέθετο μεθ᾿ ὑμῶν, οὐκ ἐπιλήσεσθε καὶ οὐ φοβηθήσεσθε θεοὺς ἑτέρους, 39 ἀλλ᾿ ἢ τὸν Κύριον Θεὸν ὑμῶν φοβηθήσεσθε, καὶ αὐτὸς ἐξελεῖται ὑμᾶς ἐκ πάντων τῶν ἐχθρῶν ὑμῶν· 40 καὶ οὐκ ἀκούσεσθε ἐπὶ τῷ κρίματι αὐτῶν, ὃ αὐτοὶ ποιοῦσι. 41 καὶ ἦσαν τὰ ἔθνη ταῦτα φοβούμενοι τὸν Κύριον καὶ τοῖς γλυπτοῖς αὐ-τῶν ἦσαν δουλεύοντες, καί γε οἱ υἱοὶ καὶ οἱ υἱοὶ τῶν υἱῶν αὐτῶν, καθὰ ἐποίησαν οἱ πατέρες αὐτῶν, ποιοῦσιν ἕως τῆς ἡμέρας ταύτης.
