1 And Josaphat his son reigned in his stead, Josaphat strengthened himself against Israel. 2 And he put garrisons in all the strong cities of Juda, and appointed captains in all the cities of Juda, and in the cities of Ephraim, which Asa his father had taken. 3 And the Lord was with Josaphat, for he walked in the first ways of his father, and did not seek to idols; 4 but he sought to the Lord God of his father, and walked in the commandments of his father, and not according to the works of Israel. 5 And the Lord prospered the kingdom in his hand; and all Juda gave gifts to Josaphat; and he had great wealth and glory. 6 And his heart was exalted in the way of the Lord; and he removed the high places and the groves from the land of Juda. 7 And in the third year of his reign, he sent his chief men, and his mighty men, Abdias and Zacharias, and Nathanael, and Michaias, to teach in the cities of Juda. 8 And with them [were] the Levites, Samaias, and Nathanias, and Zabdias, and Asiel, and Semiramoth, and Jonathan, and Adonias, and Tobias, and Tobadonias, Levites, and with them Elisama and Joram, the priests. 9 And they taught in Juda, and [there was] with them the book of the law of the Lord, and they passed through the cities of Juda, and taught the people. 10 And a terror of the Lord was upon all the kingdoms of the land round about Juda, and they made no war against Josaphat. 11 And [some] of the Philistines brought to Josaphat gifts, and silver, and presents; and the Arabians brought him seven thousand seven hundred rams. 12 And Josaphat increased in greatness exceedingly, and built in Judea places of abode, and strong cities. 13 And he had many works in Judea: and the mighty men of war, [the men] of strength, [were] in Jerusalem. 14 And this [is] their number according to the houses of their fathers; even the captains of thousands in Juda [were], Ednas the chief, and with him mighty men of strength three hundred thousand. 15 And after him, Joanan the captain, and with him two hundred eighty thousand. 16 And after him Amasias the [son] of Zari, who was zealous for the Lord; and with him two hundred thousand mighty men of strength. 17 And out of Benjamin [there was] a mighty man of strength, even Eliada, and with him two hundred thousand archers and targeteers. 18 And after him Jozabad, and with him a hundred and eighty thousand mighty men of war. 19 These were the king’s servants besides those whom the king put in the strong cities in all Judea. ΚΑΙ ἐβασίλευσεν ᾿Ιωσαφὰτ υἱὸς αὐτοῦ ἀντ’ αὐτοῦ, καὶ κατίσχυσεν ᾿Ιωσαφὰτ ἐπὶ τὸν ᾿Ισραήλ. 2 καὶ ἔδωκε δύναμιν ἐν πάσαις ταῖς πόλεσιν ᾿Ιούδα ταῖς ὀχυραῖς καὶ κατέστησεν ἡγουμένους ἐν πάσαις ταῖς πόλεσιν ᾿Ιούδα καὶ ἐν πόλεσιν ᾿Εφραίμ, ἃς προκατελάβετο ᾿Ασὰ ὁ πατὴρ αὐτοῦ. 3 καὶ ἐγένετο Κύριος μετὰ ᾿Ιωσαφάτ, ὅτι ἐπορεύθη ἐν ὁδοῖς τοῦ πατρὸς αὐτοῦ ταῖς πρώταις καὶ οὐκ ἐξεζήτησε τὰ εἴδωλα, 4 ἀλλὰ Κύριον τὸν Θεὸν τοῦ πατρὸς αὐτοῦ ἐξεζήτησε καὶ ἐν ταῖς ἐντολαῖς τοῦ πατρὸς αὐτοῦ ἐπορεύθη, καὶ οὐχ ὡς τὰ ἔργα τοῦ ᾿Ισραήλ. 5 καὶ κατεύθυνε Κύριος τὴν βασιλείαν ἐν χειρὶ αὐτοῦ, καὶ ἔδωκε πᾶς ᾿Ιούδα δῶρα τῷ ᾿Ιωσαφάτ, καὶ ἐγένετο αὐτῷ πλοῦτος καὶ δόξα πολλή. 6 καὶ ὑψώθη ἡ καρδία αὐτοῦ ἐν ὁδῷ Κυρίου, καὶ ἔτι εξῇρε τὰ ὑψηλὰ καὶ τὰ ἄλση ἀπὸ τῆς γῆς ᾿Ιούδα. 7 καὶ ἐν τῷ τρίτῳ ἔτει τῆς βασιλείας αὐτοῦ ἀπέστειλε τοὺς ἡγουμένους αὐτοῦ καὶ τοὺς υἱοὺς τῶν δυνατῶν, τὸν ᾿Αβδίαν καὶ Ζαχαρίαν καὶ Ναθαναὴλ καὶ Μιχαίαν, τοῦ διδάσκειν ἐν πόλεσιν ᾿Ιούδα· 8 καὶ μετ’ αὐτῶν οἱ Λευῖται Σαμαίας καὶ Ναθανίας καὶ Ζαβδίας καὶ ᾿Ασιὴλ καὶ Σεμιραμὼθ καὶ ᾿Ιωνάθαν καὶ ᾿Αδωνίας καὶ Τωβίας, οἱ Λευῖται, καὶ μετ’ αὐτῶν ᾿Ελισαμὰ καὶ ᾿Ιωρὰμ οἱ ἱερεῖς, 9 καὶ ἐδίδασκον ἐν ᾿Ιούδᾳ, καὶ μετ’ αὐτῶν βίβλος νόμου Κυρίου, καὶ διῆλθον ἐν ταῖς πόλεσιν ᾿Ιούδα καὶ ἐδίδασκον τὸν λαόν. 10 καὶ ἐγένετο ἔκστασις Κυρίου ἐπὶ πάσαις ταῖς βασιλείαις τῆς γῆς κύκλῳ ᾿Ιούδα, καὶ οὐκ ἐπολέμουν πρὸς ᾿Ιωσαφάτ· 11 καὶ ἀπὸ τῶν ἀλλοφύλων ἔφερον τῷ ᾿Ιωσαφὰτ δῶρα καὶ ἀργύριον καὶ δόματα, καὶ οἱ ῎Αραβες ἔφερον αὐτῷ κριοὺς προβάτων ἑπτακισχιλίους ἑπτακοσίους. 12 καὶ ἦν ᾿Ιωσαφὰτ πορευόμενος μείζων ἕως εἰς ὕψος καὶ ᾠκοδόμησεν ἐν τῇ ᾿Ιουδαίᾳ οἰκήσεις καὶ πόλεις ὀχυράς. 13 καὶ ἔργα πολλὰ ἐγένετο αὐτῷ ἐν τῇ ᾿Ιουδαίᾳ καὶ ἄνδρες πολεμισταὶ δυνατοὶ ἰσχύοντες ἐν ῾Ιερουσαλήμ. 14 καὶ οὗτος ὁ ἀριθμὸς αὐτῶν κατ’ οἴκους πατριῶν αὐτῶν· καὶ τῷ ᾿Ιούδᾳ χιλίαρχοι, ῎Εδνας ὁ ἄρχων καὶ μετ’ αὐτοῦ υἱοὶ δυνατοὶ δυνάμεως τριακόσιαι χιλιάδες· 15 καὶ μετ’ αὐτὸν ᾿Ιωανὰν ὁ ἡγούμενος καὶ μετ’ αὐτοῦ διακόσιαι ὀγδοήκοντα χιλιάδες· 16 καὶ μετ’ αὐτὸν ᾿Αμασίας ὁ τοῦ Ζαρί, ὁ προθυμούμενος τῷ Κυρίῳ, καὶ μετ’ αὐτοῦ διακόσιαι χιλιάδες δυνατοὶ δυνάμεως. 17 καὶ ἐκ τοῦ Βενιαμὶν δυνατὸς δυνάμεως ᾿Ελιαδὰ καὶ μετ’ αὐτοῦ τοξόται καὶ πελτασταὶ διακόσιαι χιλιάδες. 18 καὶ μετ’ αὐτὸν ᾿Ιωζαβὰδ καὶ μετ’ αὐτοῦ ἑκατὸν ὀγδοήκοντα χιλιάδες δυνατοὶ πολέμου. 19 οὗτοι οἱ λειτουργοῦντες τῷ βασιλεῖ, ἐκτὸς ὧν ἔδωκεν ὁ βασιλεὺς ἐν ταῖς πόλεσι ταῖς ὀχυραῖς ἐν πάσῃ τῇ ᾿Ιουδαίᾳ.
