1 Amasias began to reign when he was twenty and five years old, and he reigned twenty-nine years in Jerusalem; and his mother’s name [was] Joadaen of Jerusalem. 2 And he did that which was right in the sight of the Lord, but not with a perfect heart. 3 And it came to pass, when the kingdom was established in his hand, that he slew his servants who had slain the king his father. 4 But he slew not their sons, according to the covenant of the law of the Lord, as it is written, [and] as the Lord commanded, saying, The fathers shall not die for the children, and the sons shall not die for the fathers, but they shall die each for his own sin. 5 And Amasias assembled the house of Juda, and appointed them according to the houses of their families for captains of thousands and captains of hundreds in all Juda and Jerusalem: and he numbered them from twenty years old and upwards, and found them three hundred thousand able to go out to war, holding spear and shield. 6 Also he hired of Israel a hundred thousand mighty [men for] a hundred talents of silver. 7 And there came a man of God to him, saying, O king, let not the host of Israel go with thee; for the Lord is not with Israel, [even] all the sons of Ephraim. 8 For if thou shalt undertake to strengthen [thyself] with these, then the Lord shall put thee to flight before the enemies: for it is of the Lord both to strengthen and to put to flight. 9 And Amasias said to the man of God, But what shall I do [for] the hundred talents which I have given to the army of Israel? And the man of God said, The Lord can give thee much more than these. 10 And Amasias separated from the army that came to him from Ephraim, that they might go away to their place; and they were very angry with Juda, and they returned to their place with great wrath. 11 And Amasias strengthened [himself], and took his people, and went to the valley of salt, and smote there the children of Seir ten thousand. 12 And the children of Juda took ten thousand prisoners, and they carried them to the top of the precipice, and cast them headlong from the top of the precipice, and they were all dashed to pieces. 13 And the men of the host whom Amasias sent back so that they should not go with him to battle, [went] and attacked the cities of Juda, from Samaria to Baethoron; and they smote three thousand among them, and took much spoil. 14 And it came to pass, after Amasias had returned from smiting Idumea, that he brought home the gods of the children of Seir, and set them up for himself as gods, and bowed down before them, and he sacrificed to them. 15 And the anger of the Lord came upon Amasias, and he sent him a prophet, and he said to him, Why hast thou sought the gods of the people, which have not rescued their own people out of thine hand? 16 And it came to pass when the prophet was speaking to him, that he said to him, have I made thee king’s counsellor? take heed lest thou be scourged: and the prophet forebore, and said, I know that [God] is disposed against thee to destroy thee, because thou hast done this thing, and hast not hearkened to my counsel. 17 And Amasias king of Juda took counsel, and sent to Joas, son of Joachaz, son of Jeu, king of Israel, saying, Come, and let us look one another in the face. 18 And Joas king of Israel sent to Amasias king of Juda, saying, The thistle that was in Libanus sent to the cedar that was in Libanus, saying, Give thy daughter to my son to wife; but, behold, the wild beasts of the field that are in Libanus shall come: and the wild beasts did come, and trod down the thistle. 19 Thou hast said, Behold, I have smitten Idumea, and thy stout heart exalts thee: now stay at home; for why dost thou implicate thyself in mischief, that thou shouldest fall, and Juda with thee. 20 Nevertheless Amasias hearkened not, for it was of the Lord to deliver him into [the enemy’s] hands, because he sought after the gods of the Idumeans. 21 So Joas king of Israel went up; and they saw one another, he and Amasias king of Juda, in Baethsamys, which is of Juda. 22 And Juda was put to flight before Israel, and they fled every man to his tent. 23 And Joas king of Israel took prisoner Amasias king of Juda, [son] of Joas, son of Joachaz, in Baethsamys, and brought him to Jerusalem; and he pulled down [part] of the wall of Jerusalem from the gate of Ephraim to the corner gate, four hundred cubits. 24 And [he took] all the gold and the silver, and all the vessels that were found in the house of the Lord and with Abdedom, and the treasures of the king’s house, and the hostages, and he returned to Samaria. 25 And Amasias the [son] of Joas king of Juda lived after the death of Joas the [son] of Joachaz king of Israel fifteen years. 26 And the rest of the acts of Amasias, the first and the last, Lo! are they not written in the book of the kings of Juda and Israel? 27 And at the time when Amasias departed from the Lord, then they formed a conspiracy against him; and he fled from Jerusalem to Lachis: and they sent after him to Lachis, and slew him there. 28 And they took him up on horses, and buried him with his fathers in the city of David. ΩΝ εἴκοσι καὶ πέντε ἐτῶν ἐβασίλευσεν ᾿Αμασίας καὶ εἰκοσιεννέα ἔτη ἐβασίλευσεν ἐν ῾Ιερουσαλήμ, καὶ ὄνομα τῇ μητρὶ αὐτοῦ ᾿Ιωαδὲν ἀπὸ ῾Ιερουσαλήμ. 2 καὶ ἐποίησε τὸ εὐθὲς ἐνώπιον Κυρίου, ἀλλ’ οὐκ ἐν καρδίᾳ πλήρει. 3 καὶ ἐγένετο ὡς κατέστη ἡ βασιλεία ἐν χειρὶ αὐτοῦ, καὶ ἐθανάτωσε τοὺς παῖδας αὐτοῦ τοὺς φονεύσαντας τὸν βασιλέα πατέρα αὐτοῦ· 4 καὶ τοὺς υἱοὺς αὐτῶν οὐκ ἀπέκτεινε κατὰ τὴν διαθήκην τοῦ νόμου Κυρίου, καθὼς γέγραπται, ὡς ἐνετείλατο Κύριος λέγων· οὐκ ἀποθανοῦνται πατέρες ὑπὲρ τέκνων, καὶ οἱ υἱοὶ οὐκ ἀποθανοῦνται ὑπὲρ πατέρων, ἀλλ’ ἢ ἕκαστος τῇ ἑαυτοῦ ἁμαρτίᾳ ἀποθανοῦνται. 5 καὶ συνήγαγεν ᾿Αμασίας τὸν οἶκον ᾿Ιούδα καὶ ἀνέστησεν αὐτοὺς κατ’ οἴκους πατριῶν αὐτῶν εἰς χιλιάρχους καὶ ἑκατοντάρχους ἐν παντὶ ᾿Ιούδᾳ καὶ ῾Ιερουσαλήμ· καὶ ἠρίθμησεν αὐτοὺς ἀπὸ εἰκοσαετοῦς καὶ ἐπάνω καὶ εὗρεν αὐτοὺς τριακοσίας χιλιάδας ἐξελθεῖν εἰς πόλεμον δυνατοὺς κρατοῦντας δόρυ καὶ θυρεόν. 6 καὶ ἐμισθώσατο ἀπὸ ᾿Ισραὴλ ἑκατὸν χιλιάδας δυνατοὺς ἰσχύϊ ἑκατὸν ταλάντων ἀργυρίου. 7 καὶ ἄνθρωπος τοῦ Θεοῦ ἦλθε πρὸς αὐτὸν λέγων· βασιλεῦ, οὐ πορεύσεται μετὰ σοῦ δύναμις ᾿Ισραήλ, ὅτι οὐκ ἔστι Κύριος μετά ᾿Ισραήλ, πάντων τῶν υἱῶν ᾿Εφραίμ. 8 ὅτι ἐὰν ὑπολάβῃς κατισχῦσαι ἐν τούτοις, καὶ τροπώσεταί σε Κύριος ἐναντίον τῶν ἐχθρῶν, ὅτι ἐστὶ παρὰ Κυρίου καὶ ἰσχῦσαι καὶ τροπώσασθαι. 9 καὶ εἶπεν ᾿Αμασίας τῷ ἀνθρώπῳ τοῦ Θεοῦ· καὶ τί ποιήσω τὰ ἑκατὸν τάλαντα, ἃ ἔδωκα τῇ δυνάμει ᾿Ισραήλ; καὶ εἶπεν ὁ ἄνθρωπος τοῦ Θεοῦ· ἔστι τῷ Κυρίῳ δοῦναί σοι πλεῖστα τούτων. 10 καὶ διεχώρισεν ᾿Αμασίας τῇ δυνάμει τῇ ἐλθούσῃ πρὸς αὐτὸν ἀπὸ ᾿Εφραὶμ ἀπελθεῖν εἰς τὸν τόπον αὐτῶν, καὶ ἐθυμώθησαν σφόδρα ἐπὶ ᾿Ιούδαν καὶ ἐπέστρεψαν εἰς τὸν τόπον αὐτῶν ἐν ὀργῇ θυμοῦ. 11 καὶ ᾿Αμασίας κατίσχυσε καὶ παρέλαβε τὸν λαὸν αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐπορεύθη εἰς τὴν κοιλάδα τῶν ἁλῶν καὶ ἐπάταξεν ἐκεῖ τοὺς υἱοὺς Σηεὶρ δέκα χιλιάδας· 12 καὶ δέκα χιλιάδας ἐζώγρησαν οἱ υἱοὶ ᾿Ιούδα καὶ ἔφερον αὐτοὺς ἐπὶ τὸ ἄκρον τοῦ κρημνοῦ καὶ κατεκρήμνιζον αὐτοὺς ἀπὸ τοῦ ἄκρου τοῦ κρημνοῦ, καὶ πάντες διερρήγνυντο. 13 καὶ οἱ υἱοὶ τῆς δυνάμεως, οὓς ἀπέστρεψεν ᾿Αμασίας τοῦ μὴ πορευθῆναι μετ’ αὐτοῦ εἰς πόλεμον, καὶ ἐπέθεντο ἐπὶ τὰς πόλεις ᾿Ιούδα ἀπὸ Σαμαρείας ἕως Βαιθωρὼν καὶ ἐπάταξαν ἐν αὐτοῖς τρεῖς χιλιάδας καὶ ἐσκύλευσαν σκῦλα πολλά. 14 καὶ ἐγένετο μετὰ τὸ ἐλθεῖν ᾿Αμασίαν πατάξαντα τὴν ᾿Ιδουμαίαν καὶ ἤνεγκε πρὸς αὐτοὺς τοὺς θεοὺς υἱῶν Σηεὶρ καὶ ἔστησεν αὐτοὺς ἑαυτῷ εἰς θεοὺς καὶ ἐναντίον αὐτῶν προσεκύνει καὶ αὐτὸς αὐτοῖς ἔθυε. 15 καὶ ἐγένετο ὀργὴ Κυρίου ἐπὶ ᾿Αμασίαν, καὶ ἀπέστειλεν αὐτῷ προφήτην καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῷ· τί ἐζήτησας τοὺς Θεοὺς τοῦ λαοῦ, οἳ οὐκ ἐξείλοντο τὸν λαὸν ἑαυτῶν ἐκ χειρός σου; 16 καὶ ἐγένετο ἐν τῷ λαλῆσαι αὐτῷ πρὸς αὐτὸν καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῷ· μὴ σύμβουλον τοῦ βασιλέως δέδωκά σε; πρόσεχε ἵνα μὴ μαστιγωθῇς. καὶ ἐσιώπησεν ὁ προφήτης καὶ εἶπεν, ὅτι γινώσκω ὅτι ἐβούλετο ἐπὶ σοὶ τοῦ καταφθεῖραί σε, ὅτι ἐποίησας τοῦτο καὶ οὐκ ἐπήκουσας τῆς συμβουλίας μου. 17 καὶ ἐβουλεύσατο ᾿Αμασίας ὁ βασιλεὺς ᾿Ιούδα καὶ ἀπέστειλε πρὸς ᾿Ιωὰς υἱὸν ᾿Ιωάχαζ υἱοῦ ᾿Ιηοὺ βασιλέα ᾿Ισραὴλ λέγων· δεῦρο καὶ ὀφθῶμεν προσώποις. 18 καὶ ἀπέστειλεν ᾿Ιωὰς βασιλεὺς ᾿Ισραὴλ πρὸς ᾿Αμασίαν βασιλέα ᾿Ιούδα λέγων· ὁ ἀχοὺχ ὁ ἐν τῷ Λιβάνῳ ἀπέστειλε πρὸς τὴν κέδρον τὴν ἐν τῷ Λιβάνῳ λέγων· δὸς τὴν θυγατέρα σου τῷ υἱῷ μου εἰς γυναῖκα. καὶ ἰδοὺ ἐλεύσεται τά θηρία τοῦ ἀγροῦ τὰ ἐν τῷ Λιβάνῳ· καὶ ἦλθον τὰ θηρία καὶ κατεπάτησαν τὸν ἀχούχ. 19 εἶπας· ἰδοὺ ἐπάταξα τὴν ᾿Ιδουμαίαν καὶ ἐπαίρει σε ἡ καρδία σου ἡ βαρεῖα· νῦν κάθισον ἐν οἴκῳ σου καὶ ἱνατί συμβάλλεις ἐν κακίᾳ καὶ πεσῇ σὺ καὶ ᾿Ιούδας μετὰ σοῦ; 20 καὶ οὐκ ἤκουσεν ᾿Αμασίας, ὅτι παρὰ Κυρίου ἐγένετο τοῦ παραδοῦναι αὐτὸν εἰς χεῖρας, ὅτι ἐξεζήτησε τοὺς θεοὺς τῶν ᾿Ιδουμαίων. 21 καὶ ἀνέβη ᾿Ιωὰς βασιλεὺς ᾿Ισραήλ, καὶ ὤφθησαν ἀλλήλοις αὐτὸς καὶ ᾿Αμασίας βασιλεὺς ᾿Ιούδα ἐν Βαιθσαμύς, ἥ ἐστι τοῦ ᾿Ιούδα. 22 καὶ ἐτροπώθη ᾿Ιούδας κατὰ πρόσωπον ᾿Ισραήλ, καὶ ἔφυγεν ἕκαστος εἰς τὸ σκήνωμα αὐτοῦ. 23 καὶ τὸν ᾿Αμασίαν βασιλέα ᾿Ιούδα τὸν τοῦ ᾿Ιωὰς υἱοῦ ᾿Ιωάχαζ κατέλαβεν ᾿Ιωὰς βασιλεὺς ᾿Ισραὴλ ἐν Βαιθσαμὺς καὶ εἰσήγαγεν αὐτὸν εἰς ῾Ιερουσαλὴμ καὶ κατέσπασεν ἀπὸ τοῦ τείχους ῾Ιερουσαλήμ, ἀπὸ πύλης ᾿Εφραὶμ ἕως πύλης γωνίας τετρακοσίους πήχεις· 24 καὶ πᾶν τὸ χρυσίον καὶ τὸ ἀργύριον καὶ πάντα τὰ σκεύη τὰ εὑρεθέντα ἐν οἴκῳ Κυρίου καὶ παρὰ τῷ ᾿Αβδεδὸμ καὶ τοὺς θησαυροὺς οἴκου τοῦ βασιλέως καὶ τοὺς υἱοὺς τῶν συμμίξεων καὶ ἐπέστρεψεν εἰς Σαμάρειαν. 25 καὶ ἔζησεν ᾿Αμασίας ὁ τοῦ ᾿Ιωὰς βασιλεὺς ᾿Ιούδα μετὰ τὸ ἀποθανεῖν ᾿Ιωὰς τὸν τοῦ ᾿Ιωάχαζ βασιλέα ᾿Ισραὴλ ἔτη δεκαπέντε. 26 καὶ οἱ λοιποὶ λόγοι ᾿Αμασίου οἱ πρῶτοι καὶ οἱ ἔσχατοι οὐκ ἰδοὺ γεγραμμένοι ἐπὶ βιβλίου βασιλέων ᾿Ιούδα καὶ ᾿Ισραήλ; 27 καὶ ἐν τῷ καιρῷ, ᾧ ἀπέστη ᾿Αμασίας ἀπὸ Κυρίου, καὶ ἐπέθεντο αὐτῷ ἐπίθεσιν, καὶ ἔφυγεν ἀπὸ ῾Ιερουσαλὴμ εἰς Λαχίς· καὶ ἀπέστειλαν κατόπισθεν αὐτοῦ εἰς Λαχὶς καὶ ἐθανάτωσαν αὐτὸν ἐκεῖ. 28 καὶ ἀνέλαβον αὐτὸν ἐπὶ τῶν ἵππων καὶ ἔθαψαν αὐτὸν μετὰ τῶν πατέρων αὐτοῦ ἐν πόλει Δαυίδ.
