1 And Azarias the son of Oded-- upon him came the Spirit of the Lord, 2 and he went out to meet Asa, and all Juda and Benjamin, and said, Hear me, Asa, and all Juda and Benjamin. The Lord [is] with you, while ye are with him; and if ye seek him out, he will be found of you; but if ye forsake him, he will forsake you. 3 And Israel [has been] a long time without the true God, and without a priest to expound [the truth], and without the law. 4 But he shall turn them to the Lord God of Israel, and he will be found of them. 5 And in that time there is no peace to one going out, or to one coming in, for the terror of the Lord is upon all that inhabit the lands. 6 And nation shall fight against nation, and city against city; for God has confounded them with every [kind of] affliction. 7 But be ye strong, and let not your hands be weakened: for there is a reward for your work. 8 And when [Asa] heard these words, and the prophesy of Adad the prophet, then he strengthened himself, and cast out the abominations from all the land of Juda and Benjamin, and from the cities which Jeroboam possessed, in mount Ephraim, and he renewed the altar of the Lord, which was before the temple of the Lord. 9 And he assembled Juda and Benjamin, and the strangers that dwelt with him, of Ephraim, and of Manasse, and of Symeon: for many of Israel were joined to him, when they saw that the Lord his God was with him. 10 And they assembled at Jerusalem in the third month, in the fifteenth year of the reign of Asa. 11 And he sacrificed to the Lord in that day of the spoils which they brought, seven hundred calves and seven thousand sheep. 12 And he entered into a covenant that they should seek the Lord God of their fathers with all their heart and with all their soul. 13 And that whoever should not seek the Lord God of Israel, should die, whether young or old, whether man or woman. 14 And they swore to the Lord with a loud voice, and with trumpets, and with cornets. 15 And all Juda rejoiced concerning the oath: for they swore with all their heart, and they sought him with all their desires; and he was found of them: and the Lord gave them rest round about. 16 And he removed Maacha his mother from being priestess to Astarte; and he cut down the idol, and burnt it in the brook of Kedron. 17 Nevertheless they removed not the high places: they still existed in Israel: nevertheless the heart of Asa was perfect all his days. 18 And he brought in the holy things of David his father, and the holy things of the house of God, silver, and gold, and vessels. 19 And there was no war [waged] with him until the thirty-fifth year of the reign of Asa. ΚΑΙ ᾿Αζαρίας υἱὸς ᾿Ωδήδ, ἐγένετο ἐπ’ αὐτὸν πνεῦμα Κυρίου, 2 καὶ ἐξῆλθεν εἰς ἀπάντησιν ᾿Ασὰ καὶ παντὶ ᾿Ιούδᾳ καὶ Βενιαμὶν καὶ εἶπεν· ἀκούσατέ μου, ᾿Ασὰ καὶ πᾶς ᾿Ιούδα καὶ Βενιαμίν. Κύριος μεθ’ ὑμῶν ἐν τῷ εἶναι ὑμᾶς μετ’ αὐτοῦ, καὶ ἐὰν ἐκζητήσητε αὐτόν, εὑρεθήσεται ὑμῖν, καὶ ἐὰν ἐγκαταλίπητε αὐτόν, ἐγκαταλείψει ὑμᾶς. 3 καὶ ἡμέραι πολλαὶ τῷ ᾿Ισραὴλ ἐν οὐ θεῷ ἀληθινῷ καὶ οὐχ ἱερέως ὑποδεικνύοντος καὶ ἐν οὐ νόμῳ· 4 καὶ ἐπιστρέψει αὐτοὺς ἐπὶ Κύριον Θεὸν ᾿Ισραήλ, καὶ εὑρεθήσεται αὐτοῖς. 5 καὶ ἐν ἐκείνῳ τῷ καιρῷ οὐκ ἔστιν εἰρήνη τῷ ἐκπορευομένῳ καὶ τῷ εἰσπορευομένῳ, ὅτι ἔκστασις Κυρίου ἐπὶ πάντας τοὺς κατοικοῦντας τὰς χώρας. 6 καὶ πολεμήσει ἔθνος πρὸς ἔθνος καὶ πόλις πρὸς πόλιν, ὅτι ὁ Θεὸς ἐξέστησεν αὐτοὺς ἐν πάσῃ θλίψει. 7 καὶ ὑμεῖς ἰσχύσατε, καὶ μὴ ἐκλυέσθωσαν αἱ χεῖρες ὑμῶν, ὅτι ἔστι μισθὸς τῇ ἐργασίᾳ ὑμῶν. 8 καὶ ἐν τῷ ἀκοῦσαι τοὺς λόγους τούτους καὶ τὴν προφητείαν ᾿Αδὰδ τοῦ προφήτου καὶ κατίσχυσε καὶ ἐξέβαλε τὰ βδελύγματα ἀπὸ πάσης τῆς γῆς ᾿Ιούδα καὶ Βενιαμὶν καὶ ἀπὸ τῶν πόλεων, ὧν κατέσχεν ῾Ιεροβοὰμ ἐν ὄρει ᾿Εφραίμ, καὶ ἐνεκαίνισε τὸ θυσιαστήριον Κυρίου, ὃ ἦν ἔμπροσθεν τοῦ ναοῦ Κυρίου. 9 καὶ ἐξεκκλησίασε τὸν ᾿Ιούδαν καὶ Βενιαμὶν καὶ τοὺς προσηλύτους τοὺς παροικοῦντας μετ’ αὐτοῦ ἀπὸ ᾿Εφραὶμ καὶ ἀπὸ Μανασσῆ καὶ ἀπὸ Συμεών, ὅτι προσετέθησαν πρὸς αὐτὸν πολλοὶ τοῦ ᾿Ισραὴλ ἐν τῷ ἰδεῖν αὐτούς, ὅτι Κύριος ὁ Θεὸς αὐτοῦ μετ’ αὐτοῦ. 10 καὶ συνήχθησαν εἰς ῾Ιερουσαλὴμ ἐν τῷ μηνὶ τῷ τρίτῳ ἐν τῷ ἔτει τῷ πεντεκαιδεκάτῳ τῆς βασιλείας ᾿Ασά. 11 καὶ ἔθυσε τῷ Κυρίῳ ἐν τῇ ἡμέρᾳ ἐκείνῃ ἀπὸ τῶν σκύλων, ὧν ἤνεγκαν, μόσχους ἑπτακοσίους καὶ πρόβατα ἑπτακισχίλια. 12 καὶ διῆλθεν ἐν διαθήκῃ ζητῆσαι Κύριον Θεὸν τῶν πατέρων αὐτῶν ἐξ ὅλης τῆς καρδίας καὶ ἐξ ὅλης τῆς ψυχῆς αὐτῶν· 13 καὶ πᾶς, ὃς ἐὰν μὴ ἐκζητήσῃ τὸν Κύριον Θεὸν τοῦ ᾿Ισραήλ, ἀποθανεῖται ἀπὸ νεωτέρου ἕως πρεσβυτέρου, ἀπὸ ἀνδρὸς ἕως γυναικός. 14 καὶ ὤμοσαν ἐν Κυρίῳ ἐν φωνῇ μεγάλῃ καὶ ἐν σάλπιγξι καὶ ἐν κερατίναις. 15 καὶ ηὐφράνθησαν πᾶς ᾿Ιούδα περὶ τοῦ ὅρκου, ὅτι ἐξ ὅλης τῆς ψυχῆς ὤμοσαν καὶ ἐν πάσῃ θελήσει ἐζήτησαν αὐτόν, καὶ εὑρέθη αὐτοῖς καὶ κατέπαυσε Κύριος αὐτοῖς κυκλόθεν. 16 καὶ τὴν Μααχὰ τὴν μητέρα αὐτοῦ μετέστησε τοῦ μὴ εἶναι τῇ ᾿Αστάρτῃ λειτουργοῦσαν καὶ κατέκοψε τὸ εἴδωλον καὶ κατέκαυσεν ἐν χειμάρρῳ Κέδρων. 17 πλὴν τὰ ὑψηλὰ οὐκ ἀπέστησαν, ἔτι ὑπῆρχεν ἐν τῷ ᾿Ισραήλ· ἀλλ’ ἡ καρδία ᾿Ασὰ ἐγένετο πλήρης πάσας τὰς ἡμέρας αὐτοῦ. 18 καὶ εἰσήνεγκε τὰ ἅγια Δαυὶδ τοῦ πατρὸς αὐτοῦ καὶ τὰ ἅγια οἴκου τοῦ Θεοῦ, ἀργύριον καὶ χρυσίον καὶ σκεύη. 19 καὶ πόλεμος οὐκ ἦν μετ’ αὐτοῦ ἕως τοῦ πέμπτου καὶ τριακοστοῦ ἔτους τῆς βασιλείας ᾿Ασά.
