1 And Elisaie spoke to the woman, whose son he [had] restored to life, saying, Arise, and go thou and thy house, and sojourn wherever thou mayest sojourn: for the Lord has called for a famine upon the land; indeed it is come upon the land [for] seven years. 2 And the woman arose, and did according to the word of Elisaie, both she and her house; and they sojourned in the land of the Philistines seven years. 3 And it came to pass after the expiration of the seven years, that the woman returned out of the land of the Philistines to the city; and came to cry to the king for her house and for her lands. 4 And the king spoke to Giezi the servant of Elisaie the man of God, saying, Tell me, I pray thee, all the great things which Elisaie has done. 5 And it came to pass, as he was telling the king how he had restored to life the dead son, behold, the woman whose son Elisaie restored to life [came] crying to the king for her house and for her lands. And Giezi said, My lord, O king, this [is] the woman, and this [is] her son, whom Elisaie restored to life. 6 And the king asked the woman, and she told him: and the king appointed her a eunuch, saying, Restore all that was hers, and all the fruits of the field from the day that she left the land until now. 7 And Elisaie came to Damascus; and the king of Syria the son of Ader was ill, and they brought him word, saying, The man of God is come hither. 8 And the king said to Azael, Take in thine hand a present, and go to meet the man of God, and enquire of the Lord by him, saying, Shall I recover of this my disease? 9 And Azael went to meet him, and he took a present in his hand, and all the good things of Damascus, forty camels’ load, and came and stood before him, and said to Elisaie, Thy son the son of Ader, the king of Syria, has sent me to thee to enquire, saying, Shall I recover of this my disease? 10 And Elisaie said, Go, say, Thou shalt certainly live; yet the Lord has shewed me that thou shalt surely die. 11 And he stood before him, and fixed [his countenance] till he was ashamed: and the man of God wept. 12 And Azael said, Why does my lord weep? And he said, Because I know all the evil that thou wilt do to the children of Israel: thou wilt utterly destroy their strong holds with fire, and thou wilt slay their choice men with the sword, and thou wilt dash their infants [against the ground], and their women with child thou wilt rip up. 13 And Azael said, Who is thy servant? a dead dog, that he should do this thing? And Elisaie said, The Lord has shewn me thee ruling over Syria. 14 And he departed from Elisaie, and went in to his lord; and he said to him, What said Elisaie to thee? and he said, He said to me, Thou shalt surely live. 15 And it came to pass on the next day that he took a thick cloth, and dipped it in water, and put it on his face, and he died: and Azael reigned in his stead. 16 In the fifth year of Joram son of Achaab king of Israel, and while Josaphat was king of Juda, Joram the son of Josaphat king of Juda began to reign. 17 Thirty and two years old was he when he began to reign, and he reigned eight years in Jerusalem. 18 And he walked in the way of the kings of Israel, as did the house of Achaab; for the daughter of Achaab was his wife: and he did that which was evil in the sight of the Lord. 19 But the Lord would not destroy Juda for David his servant’s sake, as he said he would give a light to him and to his sons continually. 20 In his days Edom revolted from under the hand of Juda, and they made a king over themselves. 21 And Joram went up to Sior, and all the chariots that were with him: and it came to pass after he had arisen, that he smote Edom who compassed him about, and the captains of the chariots; and the people fled to their tents. 22 Yet Edom revolted from under the hand of Juda till this day. Then Lobna revolted at that time. 23 And the rest of the acts of Joram, and all that he did, behold, are not these written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Juda? 24 So Joram slept with his fathers, and was buried with his fathers in the city of his father David: and Ochozias his son reigned in his stead. 25 In the twelfth year of Joram son of Achaab king of Israel, Ochozias son of Joram began to reign. 26 Twenty and two years old [was] Ochozias when he began to reign, and he reigned one year in Jerusalem: and the name of his mother [was] Gotholia, daughter of Ambri king of Israel. 27 And he walked in the way of the house of Achaab, and did that which was evil in the sight of the Lord, as did the house of Achaab. 28 And he went with Joram the son of Achaab to war against Azael king of the Syrians in Remmoth Galaad; and the Syrians wounded Joram. 29 And king Joram returned to be healed in Jezrael of the wounds with which they wounded him in Remmoth, when he fought with Azael king of Syria. And Ochozias son of Joram went down to see Joram the son of Achaab in Jezrael, because he was sick. ΚΑΙ ῾Ελισαιὲ ἐλάλησε πρὸς τὴν γυναῖκα, ἧς ἐζωπύρησε τὸν υἱόν, λέγων· ἀνάστηθι καὶ δεῦρο σὺ καὶ ὁ οἶκός σου καὶ παροίκει, οὗ ἐὰν παροικήσῃς, ὅτι κέκληκε Κύριος λιμὸν ἐπὶ τὴν γῆν, καί γε ἦλθεν ἐπὶ τὴν γῆν ἑπτὰ ἔτη. 2 καὶ ἀνέστη ἡ γυνὴ καὶ ἐποίησε κατὰ τὸ ῥῆμα ῾Ελισαιὲ καὶ αὐτὴ καὶ ὁ οἶκος αὐτῆς καὶ παρῴκει ἐν γῇ ἀλλοφύλων ἑπτὰ ἔτη. 3 καὶ ἐγένετο μετὰ τὸ τέλος τῶν ἑπτὰ ἐτῶν καὶ ἐπέστρεψεν ἡ γυνὴ ἐκ γῆς ἀλλοφύλων εἰς τὴν πόλιν καὶ ἦλθε βοῆσαι πρὸς τὸν βασιλέα περὶ τοῦ οἴκου ἑαυτῆς καὶ περὶ τῶν ἀγρῶν αὐτῆς. 4 καὶ ὁ βασιλεὺς ἐλάλει πρὸς Γιεζὶ τὸ παιδάριον ῾Ελισαιὲ τοῦ ἀνθρώπου τοῦ Θοεῦ λέγων· διήγησαι δὴ ἐμοὶ πάντα τὰ μεγάλα, ἃ ἐποίησεν ῾Ελισαιέ. 5 καὶ ἐγένετο αὐτοῦ ἐξηγουμένου τῷ βασιλεῖ, ὡς ἐζωπύρησεν υἱὸν τεθνηκότα, καὶ ἰδοὺ ἡ γυνή, ἧς ἐζωπύρησε τὸν υἱὸν αὐτῆς ῾Ελισαιέ, βοῶσα πρὸς τὸν βασιλέα περὶ τοῦ οἴκου ἑαυτῆς καὶ περὶ τῶν ἀγρῶν ἑαυτῆς· καὶ εἶπε Γιεζί· κύριε βασιλεῦ, αὕτη ἡ γυνὴ καὶ οὖτος ὁ υἱὸς αὐτῆς, ὃν ἐζωπύρησεν ῾Ελισαιέ. 6 καὶ ἐπηρώτησεν ὁ βασιλεὺς τὴν γυναῖκα καὶ διηγήσατο αὐτῷ· καὶ ἔδωκεν αὐτῇ ὁ βασιλεὺς εὐνοῦχον ἕνα λέγων· ἐπίστρεψον πάντα τὰ αὐτῆς καὶ πάντα τὰ γενήματα τοῦ ἀγροῦ ἀπὸ τῆς ἡμέρας, ἧς κατέλιπε τὴν γῆν ἕως τοῦ νῦν. 7 Καὶ ἦλθεν ῾Ελισαιὲ εἰς Δαμασκόν, καὶ υἱὸς ῎Αδερ βασιλεὺς Συρίας ἠρρώστει, καὶ ἀνήγγειλαν αὐτῷ λέγοντες· ἥκει ὁ ἄνθρωπος τοῦ Θεοῦ ἕως ὧδε. 8 καὶ εἶπεν ὁ βασιλεὺς πρὸς ᾿Αζαήλ· λάβε ἐν τῇ χειρί σου μαναὰ καὶ δεῦρο εἰς ἀπαντὴν τοῦ ἀνθρώπου τοῦ Θεοῦ καὶ ἐπιζήτησον τὸν Κύριον παρ᾿ αὐτοῦ λέγων· εἰ ζήσομαι ἐκ τῆς ἀρρωστίας μου ταύτης; 9 καὶ ἐπορεύθη ᾿Αζαὴλ εἰς ἀπαντὴν αὐτοῦ καὶ ἔλαβε μαναὰ ἐν τῇ χειρὶ αὐτοῦ καὶ πάντα τὰ ἀγαθὰ Δαμασκοῦ, ἄρσιν τεσσαράκοντα καμήλων, καὶ ἦλθε καὶ ἔστη ἐνώπιον αὐτοῦ καὶ εἶπε πρὸς ῾Ελισαιέ· υἱός σου υἱὸς ῎Αδερ βασιλεὺς Συρίας ἀπέστειλέ με πρός σε ἐπερωτῆσαι λέγων· εἰ ζήσομαι ἐκ τῆς ἀρρωστίας μου ταύτης; 10 καὶ καὶ εἶπεν ῾Ελισαιέ· δεῦρο εἰπὸν αὐτῷ· ζωῇ ζήσῃ· καὶ ἔδειξέ μοι Κύριος ὅτι θανάτῳ ἀποθανῇ· 11 καὶ παρέστη τῷ προσώπῳ αὐτοῦ καὶ ἔθηκεν ἕως αἰσχύνης, καὶ ἔκλαυσεν ὁ ἄνθρωπος τοῦ Θεοῦ. 12 καὶ εἶπεν ᾿Αζαήλ· τί ὅτι ὁ κύριός μου κλαίει; καὶ εἶπεν· ὅτι οἶδα ὅσα ποιήσεις τοῖς υἱοῖς ᾿Ισραὴλ κακά· τὰ ὀχυρώματα αὐτῶν ἐξαποστελεῖς ἐν πυρὶ καὶ τοὺς ἐκλεκτοὺς αὐτῶν ἐν ρομφαίᾳ ἀποκτενεῖς καὶ τὰ νήπια αὐτῶν ἐνσείσεις καὶ τὰς ἐν γαστρὶ ἐχούσας αὐτῶν ἀναρρήξεις. 13 καὶ εἶπεν ᾿Αζαήλ· τίς ἐστιν ὁ δοῦλός σου ὁ κύων ὁ τεθνηκώς, ὅτι ποιήσει τὸ ρῆμα τοῦτο; καὶ εἶπεν ῾Ελισαιέ· ἔδειξέ μοι Κύριός σε βασιλεύοντα ἐπὶ Συρίαν. 14 καὶ ἀπῆλθεν ἀπὸ ῾Ελισαιὲ καὶ εἰσῆλθε πρὸς τὸν κύριον αὐτοῦ καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῷ· τί εἶπέ σοι ῾Ελισαιέ; καὶ εἶπεν· εἶπέ μοι, ζωῇ ζήσῃ. 15 καὶ ἐγένετο τῇ ἐπαύριον, καὶ ἔλαβε τὸ μαχμὰ καὶ ἔβαψεν ἐν τῷ ὕδατι καὶ περιέβαλεν ἐπὶ τὸ πρόσωπον αὐτοῦ καὶ ἀπέθανε, καὶ ἐβασίλευσεν ᾿Αζαὴλ ἀντ᾿ αὐτοῦ. 16 ᾿Εν ἔτει πέμπτῳ τῷ ᾿Ιωρὰμ υἱῷ ᾿Αχαὰβ βασιλεῖ ᾿Ισραὴλ καὶ ᾿Ιωσαφὰτ βασιλεῖ ᾿Ιούδα ἐβασίλευσεν ᾿Ιωρὰμ υἱὸς ᾿Ιωσαφὰτ βασιλεὺς ᾿Ιούδα. 17 υἱὸς τριάκοντα καὶ δύο ἐτῶν ἦν ἐν τῷ βασιλεύειν αὐτὸν καὶ ὀκτὼ ἔτη ἐβασίλευσεν ἐν ῾Ιερουσαλήμ. 18 καὶ ἐπορεύθη ἐν ὁδῷ βασιλέων ᾿Ισραήλ, καθὼς ἐποίησεν οἶκος ᾿Αχαάβ, ὅτι θυγάτηρ ᾿Αχαὰβ ἦν αὐτῷ εἰς γυναῖκα· καὶ ἐποίησε τὸ πονηρὸν ἐνώπιον Κυρίου. 19 καὶ οὐκ ἠθέλησε Κύριος διαφθεῖραι τὸν ᾿Ιούδαν διὰ Δαυὶδ τὸν δοῦλον αὐτοῦ, καθὼς εἶπε δοῦναι αὐτῷ λύχνον καὶ τοῖς υἱοῖς αὐτοῦ πάσας τὰς ἡμέρας. 20 ἐν ταῖς ἡμέραις αὐτοῦ ἠθέτησεν ᾿Εδὼμ ὑποκάτωθεν χειρὸς ᾿Ιούδα καὶ ἐβασίλευσαν ἐφ᾿ ἑαυτοὺς βασιλέα. 21 καὶ ἀνέβη ᾿Ιωρὰμ εἰς Σιὼρ καὶ πάντα τὰ ἅρματα τὰ μετ᾿ αὐτοῦ, καὶ ἐγένετο αὐτοῦ ἀναστάντος καὶ ἐπάταξε τὸν ᾿Εδὼμ τὸν κυκλώσαντα ἐπ᾿ αὐτὸν καὶ τοὺς ἄρχοντας τῶν ἁρμάτων, καὶ ἔφυγεν ὁ λαὸς εἰς τὰ σκηνώματα αὐτῶν. 22 καὶ ἠθέτησεν ᾿Εδὼμ ὑποκάτω τῆς χειρὸς ᾿Ιούδα ἕως τῆς ἡμέρας ταύτης. τότε ἠθέτησε Λοβενὰ ἐν τῷ καιρῷ ἐκείνῳ. 23 καὶ τὰ λοιπὰ τῶν λόγων ᾿Ιωρὰμ καὶ πάντα, ὅσα ἐποίησεν, οὐκ ἰδοὺ ταῦτα γέγραπται ἐπὶ βιβλίῳ λόγων τῶν ἡμερῶν τοῖς βασιλεῦσιν ᾿Ιούδα; 24 καὶ ἐκοιμήθη ᾿Ιωρὰμ μετὰ τῶν πατέρων αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐτάφη μετὰ τῶν πατέρων αὐτοῦ ἐν πόλει Δαυὶδ τοῦ πατρὸς αὐτοῦ· καὶ ἐβασίλευσεν ᾿Οχοζίας υἱὸς αὐτοῦ ἀντ᾿ αὐτοῦ. 25 ᾿Εν ἔτει δωδεκάτῳ τῷ ᾿Ιωρὰμ υἱῷ ᾿Αχαὰβ βασιλεῖ ᾿Ισραὴλ ἐβασίλευσεν ᾿Οχοζίας υἱὸς ᾿Ιωράμ. 26 υἱὸς εἴκοσι καὶ δύο ἐτῶν ᾿Οχοζίας ἐν τῷ βασιλεύειν αὐτὸν καὶ ἐνιαυτὸν ἕνα ἐβασίλευσεν ἐν ῾Ιερουσαλήμ, καὶ ὄνομα τῆς μητρὸς αὐτοῦ Γοθολία θυγάτηρ ᾿Αμβρὶ βασιλέως ᾿Ισραήλ. 27 καὶ ἐπορεύθη ἐν ὁδῷ οἴκου ᾿Αχαὰβ καὶ ἐποίησε τὸ πονηρὸν ἐνώπιον Κυρίου καθὼς ὁ οἶκος ᾿Αχαάβ. 28 καὶ ἐπορεύθη μετὰ ᾿Ιωρὰμ υἱοῦ ᾿Αχαὰβ εἰς πόλεμον μετὰ ᾿Αζαὴλ βασιλέως ἀλλοφύλων ἐν Ῥεμμὼθ Γαλαάδ, καὶ ἐπάταξαν οἱ Σύροι τὸν ᾿Ιωράμ. 29 καὶ ἐπέστρεψεν ὁ βασιλεὺς ᾿Ιωρὰμ τοῦ ἰατρευθῆναι ἐν ᾿Ιεζράελ ἀπὸ τῶν πληγῶν, ὧν ἐπάταξαν αὐτὸν ἐν Ῥεμμὼθ ἐν τῷ πολεμεῖν αὐτὸν μετὰ ᾿Αζαὴλ βασιλέως Συρίας· καὶ ᾿Οχοζίας υἱὸς ᾿Ιωρὰμ κατέβη τοῦ ἰδεῖν τὸν ᾿Ιωρὰμ υἱὸν ᾿Αχαὰβ ἐν ᾿Ιεζράελ, ὅτι ἠρρώστει αὐτός.
