1 And in the thirty-eighth year of the reign of Asa, the king of Israel went up against Juda, and built Rama, so as not to allow egress or ingress to Asa king of Juda. 2 And Asa took silver and gold out of the treasures of the house of the Lord, and of the king’s house, and sent [them] to the son of Ader king of Syria, which dwelt in Damascus, saying, 3 Make a covenant between me and thee, and between my father and thy father: behold, I have sent thee gold and silver: come, and turn away from me Baasa king of Israel, and let him depart from me. 4 And the son of Ader hearkened to king Asa, and sent the captains of his host against the cities of Israel; and smote Aeon, and Dan, and Abelmain, and all the country round Nephthali. 5 And it came to pass when Baasa heard [it] he left off building Rama, and put a stop to his work: 6 then king Asa took all Juda, and took the stones of Rama, and its timber, [with] which Baasa [had] built; and he built with them Gabae and Maspha. 7 And at that time came Anani the prophet to Asa king of Juda, and said to him, Because thou didst trust on the king of Syria, and didst not trust on the Lord thy God, therefore the army of Syria is escaped out of thy hand. 8 Were not the Ethiopians and Libyans a great force, in courage, in horsemen, in great numbers? and did not He deliver them into thy hands, because thou trustedst in the Lord? 9 For the eyes of the Lord look upon all the earth, to strengthen every heart that is perfect toward him. In this thou hast done foolishly; henceforth there shall be war with thee. 10 And Asa was angry with the prophet, and put him in prison, for he was angry at this: and Asa vexed some of the people at that time. 11 And, behold, the acts of Asa, the first and the last, [are] written in the book of the kings of Juda and Israel. 12 And Asa was diseased [in] his feet in the thirty-ninth year of his reign, until he was very ill: but in his disease he sought not to the Lord, but to the physicians. 13 And Asa slept with his fathers, and died in the fortieth year of his reign. 14 And they buried him in the sepulchre which he had dug for himself in the city of David, and they laid him on a bed, and filled [it] with spices and [all] kinds of perfumes of the apothecaries; and they made for him a very great funeral. ΚΑΙ ἐν τῷ ὀγδόῳ καὶ τριακοστῷ ἔτει τῆς βασιλείας ᾿Ασὰ ἀνέβη βασιλεὺς ᾿Ισραὴλ ἐπὶ ᾿Ιούδαν καὶ ᾠκοδόμησε τὴν Ῥαμὰ τοῦ μὴ δοῦναι ἔξοδον καὶ εἴσοδον τῷ ᾿Ασὰ βασιλεῖ ᾿Ιούδα. 2 καὶ ἔλαβεν ᾿Ασὰ ἀργύριον καὶ χρυσίον ἐκ θησαυρῶν οἴκου Κυρίου καὶ οἴκου τοῦ βασιλέως καὶ ἀπέστειλε πρὸς τὸν υἱὸν τοῦ ῎Αδερ βασιλέως Συρίας τὸν κατοικοῦντα ἐν Δαμασκῷ λέγων· 3 διάθου διαθήκην ἀνὰ μέσον ἐμοῦ καὶ σοῦ καὶ ἀνὰ μέσον τοῦ πατρός μου καὶ ἀνὰ μέσον τοῦ πατρός σου· ἰδοὺ ἀπέσταλκά σοι χρυσίον καὶ ἀργύριον, δεῦρο καὶ διασκέδασον ἀπ’ ἐμοῦ τὸν Βαασὰ βασιλέα ᾿Ισραὴλ καὶ ἀπελθέτω ἀπ’ ἐμοῦ. 4 καὶ ἤκουσεν υἱὸς ῎Αδερ τοῦ βασιλέως ᾿Ασὰ καὶ ἀπέστειλε τοὺς ἄρχοντας τῆς δυνάμεως αὐτοῦ ἐπὶ τὰς πόλεις ᾿Ισραὴλ καὶ ἐπάταξε τὴν ᾿Αϊὼν καὶ τὴν Δὰν καὶ τὴν ᾿Αβελμαΐν καὶ πάσας τὰς περιχώρους Νεφθαλί. 5 καὶ ἐγένετο ἐν τῷ ἀκοῦσαι Βαασὰ ἀπέλιπε τοῦ μηκέτι οἰκοδομεῖν τὴν Ῥαμὰ καὶ κατέπαυσε τὸ ἔργον αὐτοῦ. 6 καὶ ᾿Ασὰ βασιλεὺς ἔλαβε πάντα τὸν ᾿Ιούδαν καὶ ἔλαβε τοὺς λίθους τῆς Ῥαμὰ καὶ τὰ ξύλα αὐτῆς, ἃ ᾠκοδόμησε Βαασά, καὶ ᾠκοδόμησεν ἐν αὐτοῖς τὴν Γαβαὲ καὶ τὴν Μασφά. 7 καὶ ἐν τῷ καιρῷ ἐκείνῳ ἦλθεν ᾿Ανανὶ ὁ προφήτης πρὸς ᾿Ασὰ βασιλέα ᾿Ιούδα καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῷ· ἐν τῷ πεποιθέναι σε ἐπὶ βασιλέα Συρίας καὶ μὴ πεποιθέναι σε ἐπὶ Κύριον Θεόν σου, διὰ τοῦτο ἐσώθη ἡ δύναμις Συρίας ἀπὸ τῆς χειρός σου. 8 οὐχ οἱ Αἰθίοπες καὶ Λίβυες ἦσαν εἰς δύναμιν πολλὴν εἰς θάρσος, εἰς ἱππεῖς εἰς πλῆθος σφόδρα; καὶ ἐν τῷ πεποιθέναι σε ἐπὶ Κύριον παρέδωκεν εἰς χεῖράς σου; 9 ὅτι οἱ ὀφθαλμοὶ Κυρίου ἐπιβλέπουσιν ἐν πάσῃ τῇ γῇ κατισχῦσαι ἐν πάσῃ καρδίᾳ πλήρει πρὸς αὐτόν. ἠγνόηκας ἐπὶ τούτῳ· ἀπὸ τοῦ νῦν ἔσται μετὰ σοῦ πόλεμος. 10 καὶ ἐθυμώθη ᾿Ασὰ τῷ προφήτῃ καὶ παρέθετο αὐτὸν εἰς φυλακήν, ὅτι ὠργίσθη ἐπὶ τούτῳ· καὶ ἐλυμήνατο ᾿Ασὰ ἐν τῷ λαῷ ἐν τῷ καιρῷ ἐκείνῳ. 11 Καὶ ἰδοὺ οἱ λόγοι ᾿Ασὰ οἱ πρῶτοι καὶ οἱ ἔσχατοι γεγραμμένοι ἐν βιβλίῳ βασιλέων ᾿Ιούδα καὶ ᾿Ισραήλ. 12 καὶ ἐμαλακίσθη ᾿Ασὰ ἐν τῷ ἔτει τῷ ἐνάτῳ καὶ τριακοστῷ τῆς βασιλείας αὐτοῦ τοὺς πόδας, ἕως σφόδρα ἐμαλακίσθη· καὶ ἐν τῇ μαλακίᾳ αὐτοῦ οὐκ ἐζήτησε τὸν Κύριον, ἀλλὰ τοὺς ἰατρούς. 13 καὶ ἐκοιμήθη ᾿Ασὰ μετὰ τῶν πατέρων αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐτελεύτησεν ἐν τῷ τεσσαρακοστῷ ἔτει τῆς βασιλείας αὐτοῦ, 14 καὶ ἔθαψαν αὐτὸν ἐν τῷ μνήματι, ᾧ ὤρυξεν ἑαυτῷ ἐν πόλει Δαυίδ, καὶ ἐκοίμησαν αὐτὸν ἐπὶ τῆς κλίνης καὶ ἔπλησαν ἀρωμάτων καὶ γένη μύρων μυρεψῶν καὶ ἐποίησαν αὐτῷ ἐκφορὰν μεγάλην ἕως σφόδρα.
