1 And Josaphat slept with his fathers, and was buried in the city of David: and Joran his son reigned in his stead. 2 And he had brothers, the six sons of Josaphat, Azarias, and Jeiel, and Zacharias, and Azarias, and Michael, and Zaphatias: all these [were] the sons of Josaphat king of Juda. 3 And their father gave them many gifts, silver, and gold, and arms, together with fortified cities in Juda: but he gave the kingdom to Joram, for he [was] the first-born. 4 And Joram entered upon his kingdom, and strengthened himself, and slew all his brothers with the sword, and [some] of the princes of Israel. 5 When he was thirty and two years old, Joram succeeded to his kingdom, and he reigned eight years in Jerusalem. 6 And he walked in the way of the kings of Israel, as did the house of Achaab; for a daughter of Achaab was his wife: and he did that which was evil in the sight of the Lord: 7 nevertheless the Lord would not utterly destroy the house of David, because of the covenant which he made with David, and as he said to him that he would give a light to him and his sons for ever. 8 In those days Edom revolted from Juda, and they made a king over themselves. 9 And Joram went with the princes, and all the cavalry with him: and it came to pass that he arose by night, and smote Edom that compassed him about, and the captains of the chariots, and the people fled to their tents. 10 And Edom revolted from Juda until this day. Then Lomna at that time revolted from [under] his hand, because he forsook the Lord God of his fathers. 11 For he built high places in the cities of Juda, and caused the dwellers in Jerusalem to go a-whoring, and led Juda astray. 12 And there came to him [a message] in writing from Eliu the prophet, saying, Thus saith the Lord God of thy father David, Because thou hast not walked in the way of thy father Josaphat, nor in the ways of Asa king of Juda, 13 but hast walked in the ways of the kings of Israel, and hast caused Juda and the dwellers in Jerusalem to go a-whoring, as the house of Achaab caused [Israel] to go a-whoring, and thou hast slain thy brethren, the sons of thy father, who were better than thyself; 14 behold, the Lord shall smite thee with a great plague among thy people, and thy sons, and thy wives, and all thy store: 15 and thou [shalt be afflicted] with a grievous disease, with a disease of the bowels, until thy bowels shall fall out day by day with the sickness. 16 So the Lord stirred up the Philistines against Joram, and the Arabians, and those who bordered on the Aethiopians: 17 and they went up against Juda, and prevailed against them, and took away all the store which they found in the house of the king, and his sons, and his daughters; and there was no son left to him but Ochozias the youngest of his sons. 18 And after all these things the Lord smote him in the bowels with an incurable disease. 19 And it continued from day to day: and when the time of the days came [to] two years, his bowels fell out with the disease, and he died by a grievous distemper: and his people performed no funeral, like the funeral of his fathers. 20 He was thirty and two years old when he began to reign, and he reigned eight years in Jerusalem. And he departed without honour, and was buried in the city of David, but not in the tombs of the kings. ΚΑΙ ἐκοιμήθη ᾿Ιωσαφὰτ μετὰ τῶν πατέρων αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐτάφη ἐν πόλει Δαυίδ, καὶ ἐβασίλευσεν ᾿Ιωρὰμ υἱὸς αὐτοῦ ἀντ’ αὐτοῦ. 2 καὶ αὐτῷ ἀδελφοὶ υἱοὶ ᾿Ιωσαφὰτ ἕξ, ᾿Αζαρίας καὶ ᾿Ιεϊὴλ καὶ Ζαχαρίας καὶ ᾿Αζαρίας καὶ Μιχαὴλ καὶ Σαφατίας· πάντες οὗτοι υἱοὶ ᾿Ιωσαφὰτ βασιλέως ᾿Ιούδα. 3 καὶ ἔδωκεν αὐτοῖς ὁ πατὴρ αὐτῶν δόματα πολλά, ἀργύριον καὶ χρυσίον καὶ ὅπλα μετὰ τῶν πόλεων τετειχισμένων ἐν ᾿Ιούδᾳ· καὶ τὴν βασιλείαν ἔδωκε τῷ ᾿Ιωράμ, ὅτι οὗτος ὁ πρωτότοκος. 4 καὶ ἀνέστη ᾿Ιωρὰμ ἐπὶ τὴν βασιλείαν αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐκραταιώθη καὶ ἀπέκτεινε πάντας τοὺς ἀδελφοὺς αὐτοῦ ἐν ῥομφαίᾳ καὶ ἀπὸ τῶν ἀρχόντων ᾿Ισραήλ. 5 ὄντος αὐτοῦ τριάκοντα καὶ δύο ἐτῶν, κατέστη ᾿Ιωρὰμ ἐπὶ τὴν βασιλείαν αὐτοῦ καὶ ὀκτὼ ἔτη ἐβασίλευσεν ἐν ῾Ιερουσαλήμ. 6 καὶ ἐπορεύθη ἐν ὁδῷ βασιλέων ᾿Ισραήλ, ὡς ἐποίησεν οἶκος ᾿Αχαάβ, ὅτι θυγάτηρ ᾿Αχαὰβ ἦν αὐτοῦ γυνή, καὶ ἐποίησε τὸ πονηρὸν ἐναντίον Κυρίου. 7 καὶ οὐκ ἐβούλετο Κύριος ἐξολοθρεῦσαι τὸν οἶκον Δαυὶδ διὰ τὴν διαθήκην, ἣν διέθετο τῷ Δαυίδ, καὶ ὡς εἶπεν αὐτῷ δοῦναι αὐτῷ λύχνον καὶ τοῖς υἱοῖς αὐτοῦ πάσας τὰς ἡμέρας. 8 ἐν ταῖς ἡμέραις ἐκείναις ἀπέστη ᾿Εδὼμ ἀπὸ τοῦ ᾿Ιούδα καὶ ἐβασίλευσαν ἐφ’ ἑαυτοὺς βασιλέα. 9 καὶ ᾤχετο ᾿Ιωρὰμ μετὰ τῶν ἀρχόντων καὶ πᾶσα ἡ ἵππος μετ’ αὐτοῦ· καὶ ἐγένετο καὶ ἠγέρθη νυκτὸς καὶ ἐπάταξεν ᾿Εδὼμ τὸν κυκλοῦντα αὐτὸν καὶ τοὺς ἄρχοντας τῶν ἁρμάτων, καὶ ἔφυγεν ὁ λαὸς εἰς τὰ σκηνώματα αὐτῶν. 10 καὶ ἀπέστη ἀπὸ ᾿Ιούδα ᾿Εδὼμ ἕως τῆς ἡμέρας ταύτης· τότε ἀπέστη Λομνὰ ἐν τῷ καιρῷ ἐκείνῳ ἀπὸ χειρὸς αὐτοῦ, ὅτι ἐγκατέλιπε Κύριον τὸν Θεὸν τῶν πατέρων αὐτοῦ· 11 καὶ γὰρ αὐτὸς ἐποίησεν ὑψηλὰ ἐν ταῖς πόλεσιν ᾿Ιούδα καὶ ἐξεπόρνευσε τοὺς κατοικοῦντας ἐν ῾Ιερουσαλὴμ καὶ ἀπεπλάνησε τὸν ᾿Ιούδαν. 12 καὶ ἦλθεν αὐτῷ ἐν γραφῇ παρὰ ᾿Ηλιοὺ τοῦ προφήτου λέγων· τάδε λέγει Κύριος Θεὸς Δαυὶδ τοῦ πατρός σου· ἀνθ’ ὧν οὐκ ἐπορεύθης ἐν ὁδῷ ᾿Ιωσαφὰτ τοῦ πατρός σου καὶ ἐν ὁδοῖς ᾿Ασὰ βασιλέως ᾿Ιούδα 13 καὶ ἐπορεύθης ἐν ὁδοῖς βασιλέων ᾿Ισραὴλ καὶ ἐξεπόρνευσας τὸν ᾿Ιούδαν καὶ τοὺς κατοικοῦντας ἐν ῾Ιερουσαλήμ, ὡς ἐξεπόρνευσεν οἶκος ᾿Αχαάβ, καὶ τοὺς ἀδελφούς σου υἱοὺς τοῦ πατρός σου τοὺς ἀγαθοὺς ὑπὲρ σὲ ἀπέκτεινας, 14 ἰδοὺ Κύριος πατάξει σε πληγὴν μεγάλην ἐν τῷ λαῷ σου καὶ ἐν τοῖς υἱοῖς σου καὶ ἐν γυναιξί σου καὶ ἐν πάσῃ τῇ ἀποσκευῇ σου. 15 καὶ σὺ ἐν μαλακίᾳ πονηρᾷ, ἐν νόσῳ κοιλίας, ἕως οὗ ἐξέλθῃ ἡ κοιλία σου μετὰ τῆς μαλακίας ἐξ ἡμερῶν εἰς ἡμέρας. 16 καὶ ἐπήγειρε Κύριος ἐπὶ ᾿Ιωρὰμ τοὺς ἀλλοφύλους καὶ τοὺς ῎Αραβας καὶ τοὺς ὁμόρους τῶν Αἰθιόπων, 17 καὶ ἀνέβησαν ἐπὶ ᾿Ιούδαν καὶ κατεδυνάστευον καὶ ἀπέστρεψαν πᾶσαν τὴν ἀποσκευήν, ἣν εὗρον ἐν οἴκῳ τοῦ βασιλέως, καὶ τοὺς υἱοὺς αὐτοῦ καὶ τὰς θυγατέρας αὐτοῦ, καὶ οὐ κατελείφθη αὐτῷ υἱός, ἀλλ’ ἢ ᾿Οχοζίας ὁ μικρότατος τῶν υἱῶν αὐτοῦ. 18 καὶ μετὰ ταῦτα πάντα ἐπάταξεν αὐτὸν Κύριος εἰς τὴν κοιλίαν μαλακίαν, ᾗ οὐκ ἔστιν ἰατρεία. 19 καὶ ἐγένετο ἐξ ἡμερῶν εἰς ἡμέρας, καὶ ὡς ἦλθε καιρὸς τῶν ἡμερῶν ἡμέρας δύο, ἐξῆλθεν ἡ κοιλία αὐτοῦ μετὰ τῆς νόσου, καὶ ἀπέθανεν ἐν μαλακίᾳ πονηρᾷ. καὶ οὐκ ἐποίησεν ὁ λαὸς αὐτοῦ ἐκφορὰν καθὼς ἐκφορὰν πατέρων αὐτοῦ. 20 ἦν τριάκοντα καὶ δύο ἐτῶν, ὅτε ἐβασίλευσε, καὶ ὀκτὼ ἔτη ἐβασίλευσεν ἐν ῾Ιερουσαλήμ· καὶ ἐπορεύθη οὐκ ἐν ἐπαίνῳ καὶ ἐτάφη ἐν πόλει Δαυὶδ καὶ οὐκ ἐν τάφοις τῶν βασιλέων.
