1 Then all the people of the land took Ozias, and he was sixteen years old, and they made him king in the room of his father Amasias. 2 He built Aelath, he recovered it to Juda, after the king slept with his fathers. 3 Ozias began to reign at the age of sixteen years, and he reigned fifty-two years in Jerusalem: and his mother’s name was Jechelia of Jerusalem. 4 And he did that which was right in the sight of the Lord, according to all that Amasias his father did. 5 And he sought the Lord in the days of Zacharias, who understood the fear of the Lord; and in his days he sought the Lord, and the Lord prospered him. 6 And he went out and fought against the Philistines, and pulled down the walls of Geth, and the walls of Jabner, and the walls of Azotus, and he built cities [near] Azotus, and among the Philistines. 7 And the Lord strengthened him against the Philistines, and against the Arabians that dwelt on the rock, and against the Minaeans. 8 And the Minaeans gave gifts to Ozias; and his fame spread as far as the entering in of Egypt, for he strengthened [himself] exceedingly. 9 And Ozias built towers in Jerusalem, both at the gate of the corners, and at the valley gate, and at the corners and he fortified them. 10 And he built towers in the wilderness, and dug many wells, for he had many cattle in the low country and in the plain; and vinedressers in the mountain country and in Carmel: for he was a husbandman. 11 And Ozias had a host of warriors, and that went out orderly to war, and returned orderly in number; and their number was [made] by the hand of Jeiel the scribe, and Maasias the judge, by the hand of Ananias the king’s deputy. 12 The whole number of the chiefs of families of the mighty men of war [was] two thousand six hundred; 13 and with them was a warrior force, three hundred thousand and seven thousand and five hundred: these waged war mightily to help the king against [his] enemies. 14 And Ozias prepared for them, [even] for all the host, shields, and spears, and helmets, and breastplates, and bows, and slings for stones. 15 And he made in Jerusalem machines invented by a wise contriver, to be upon the towers and upon the corners, to cast darts and great stones: and [the fame] of their preparation was heard at a distance; for he was wonderfully helped, till he was strong. 16 And when he was strong, his heart was lifted up to his destruction; and he transgressed against the Lord his God, and went into the temple of the Lord to turn incense on the altar of incense. 17 And there went in after him Azarias the priest, and with him eighty priests of the Lord, mighty men. 18 And they withstood Ozias the king, and said to him, [It is] not for thee, Ozias, to burn incense to the Lord, but only for the priests the sons of Aaron, who are consecrated to sacrifice: go forth of the sanctuary, for thou hast departed from the Lord; and this shall not be for glory to thee from the Lord God. 19 And Ozias was angry, and in his hand [was] the censer to burn incense in the temple: and when he was angry with the priests, then the leprosy rose up in his forehead before the priests in the house of the Lord, over the altar of incense. 20 And Azarias the chief priest, and the [other] priests, turned [to look] at him, and, behold, he [was] leprous in his forehead; and they got him hastily out thence, for he also hasted to go out, because the Lord had rebuked him. 21 And Ozias the king was a leper to the day of his death, and he dwelt [as] a leper in a separate house; for he was cut off from the house of the Lord: and Joatham his son [was set] over his kingdom, judging the people of the land. 22 And the rest of the acts of Ozias, the first and the last, [are] written by Jessias the prophet. 23 And Ozias slept with his fathers, and they buried him with his fathers in the field of the burial [place] of the kings, for they said, He is a leper; and Joatham his son reigned in his stead. ΚΑΙ ἔλαβε πᾶς ὁ λαὸς τῆς γῆς τὸν ᾿Οζίαν, καὶ αὐτὸς υἱὸς ἑκκαίδεκα ἐτῶν, καὶ ἐβασίλευσαν αὐτὸν ἀντὶ τοῦ πατρὸς αὐτοῦ ᾿Αμασίου. 2 αὐτὸς ᾠκοδόμησε τὴν Αἰλάθ, αὐτὸς ἐπέστρεψεν αὐτὴν τῷ ᾿Ιούδᾳ μετὰ τὸ κοιμηθῆναι τὸν βασιλέα μετὰ τῶν πατέρων αὐτοῦ. 3 υἱὸς ἑκκαίδεκα ἐτῶν ἐβασίλευσεν ᾿Οζίας καὶ πεντήκοντα καὶ δύο ἔτη ἐβασίλευσεν ἐν ῾Ιερουσαλήμ, καὶ ὄνομα τῇ μητρὶ αὐτοῦ ᾿Ιεχελία ἀπὸ ῾Ιερουσαλήμ. 4 καὶ ἐποίησε τὸ εὐθὲς ἐνώπιον Κυρίου κατὰ πάντα, ὅσα ἐποίησεν ᾿Αμασίας ὁ πατὴρ αὐτοῦ. 5 καὶ ἦν ἐκζητῶν τὸν Κύριον ἐν ταῖς ἡμέραις Ζαχαρίου τοῦ συνιόντος ἐν φόβῳ Κυρίου· καὶ ἐν ταῖς ἡμέραις αὐτοῦ ἐζήτησε τὸν Κύριον, καὶ εὐώδωσεν αὐτῷ Κύριος. 6 καὶ ἐξῆλθε καὶ ἐπολέμησε πρὸς τοὺς ἀλλοφύλους καὶ κατέσπασε τὰ τείχη Γὲθ καὶ τὰ τείχη ᾿Ιαβνὴ καὶ τὰ τείχη ᾿Αζώτου καὶ ᾠκοδόμησε πόλεις ᾿Αζώτου καὶ ἐν τοῖς ἀλλοφύλοις. 7 καὶ κατίσχυσεν αὐτὸν Κύριος ἐπὶ τοὺς ἀλλοφύλους καὶ ἐπὶ τοὺς ῎Αραβας τοὺς κατοικοῦντας ἐπὶ τῆς πέτρας καὶ ἐπὶ τοὺς Μιναίους. 8 καὶ ἔδωκαν οἱ Μιναῖοι δῶρα τῷ ᾿Οζίᾳ, καὶ ἦν τὸ ὄνομα αὐτοῦ ἕως εἰσόδου Αἰγύπτου, ὅτι κατίσχυσεν ἕως ἄνω. 9 καὶ ᾠκοδόμησεν ᾿Οζίας πύργους ἐν ῾Ιερουσαλὴμ καὶ ἐπὶ τὴν πύλην τῆς γωνίας καὶ ἐπὶ τὴν πύλην τῆς φάραγγος καὶ ἐπὶ τῶν γωνιῶν καὶ κατίσχυσε. 10 καὶ ᾠκοδόμησε πύργους ἐν τῇ ἐρήμῳ καὶ ἐλατόμησε λάκκους πολλούς, ὅτι κτήνη πολλὰ ὑπῆρχεν αὐτῷ ἐν Σεφηλᾷ καὶ ἐν τῇ πεδινῇ καὶ ἀμπελουργοὶ ἐν τῇ ὀρεινῇ καὶ ἐν τῷ Καρμήλῳ, ὅτι γεωργὸς ἦν. 11 καὶ ἐγένετο τῷ ᾿Οζίᾳ δύναμις ποιοῦσα πόλεμον καὶ ἐκπορευομένη εἰς παράταξιν εἰς πόλεμον καὶ εἰσπορευομένη εἰς παράταξιν εἰς ἀριθμόν, καὶ ἦν ὁ ἀριθμὸς αὐτῶν διὰ χειρὸς ᾿Ιεϊὴλ τοῦ γραμματέως καὶ Μαασίου τοῦ κριτοῦ, διὰ χειρὸς ᾿Ανανίου τοῦ διαδόχου τοῦ βασιλέως. 12 πᾶς ὁ ἀριθμὸς τῶν πατριαρχῶν τῶν δυνατῶν εἰς πόλεμον δισχίλιοι ἑξακόσιοι, 13 καὶ μετ’ αὐτῶν δύναμις πολεμικὴ τριακόσιαι χιλιάδες καὶ ἑπτακισχίλιοι καί πεντακόσιοι· οὗτοι οἱ ποιοῦντες πόλεμον ἐν δυνάμει ἰσχύος βοηθῆσαι τῷ βασιλεῖ ἐπὶ τοὺς ὑπεναντίους. 14 καὶ ἡτοίμασεν αὐτοῖς ᾿Οζίας πάσῃ τῇ δυνάμει θυρεοὺς καὶ δόρατα καὶ περικεφαλαίας καὶ θώρακας καὶ τόξα καὶ σφενδόνας εἰς λίθους. 15 καὶ ἐποίησεν ἐν ῾Ιερουσαλὴμ μηχανὰς μεμηχανευμένας λογιστοῦ τοῦ εἶναι ἐπὶ τῶν πύργων καὶ ἐπὶ τῶν γωνιῶν βάλλειν βέλεσι καὶ λίθοις μεγάλοις· καὶ ἠκούσθη ἡ κατασκευὴ αὐτῶν ἕως πόρρω, ὅτι ἐθαυμαστώθη τοῦ βοηθῆναι, ἕως οὗ κατίσχυσε. 16 Καὶ ὡς κατίσχυσεν, ὑψώθη ἡ καρδία αὐτοῦ τοῦ καταφθεῖραι, καὶ ἠδίκησεν ἐν Κυρίῳ Θεῷ αὐτοῦ καὶ εἰσῆλθεν εἰς τὸν ναὸν Κυρίου θυμιάσαι ἐπὶ τὸ θυσιαστήριον τῶν θυμιαμάτων. 17 καὶ εἰσῆλθεν ὀπίσω αὐτοῦ ᾿Αζαρίας ὁ ἱερεὺς καὶ μετ’ αὐτοῦ ἱερεῖς τοῦ Κυρίου ὀγδοήκοντα υἱοὶ δυνατοὶ 18 καὶ ἔστησαν ἐπὶ ᾿Οζίαν τὸν βασιλέα καὶ εἶπαν αὐτῷ· οὐ σοί, ᾿Οζία, θυμιάσαι τῷ Κυρίῳ, ἀλλ’ ἢ τοῖς ἱερεῦσιν υἱοῖς ᾿Ααρὼν τοῖς ἡγιασμένοις θυμιάσαι· ἔξελθε ἐκ τοῦ ἁγιάσματος, ὅτι ἀπέστης ἀπὸ Κυρίου, καὶ οὐκ ἔσται σοι τοῦτο εἰς δόξαν παρὰ Κυρίου Θεοῦ. 19 καὶ ἐθυμώθη ᾿Οζίας, καὶ ἐν τῇ χειρὶ αὐτοῦ τὸ θυμιατήριον τοῦ θυμιάσαι ἐν τῷ ναῷ, καὶ ἐν τῷ θυμωθῆναι αὐτὸν πρὸς τοὺς ἱερεῖς καὶ ἡ λέπρα ἀνέτειλεν ἐν τῷ μετώπῳ αὐτοῦ ἐναντίον τῶν ἱερέων ἐν οἴκῳ Κυρίου ἐπάνω τοῦ θυσιαστηρίου τῶν θυμιαμάτων. 20 καὶ ἐπέστρεψε πρὸς αὐτὸν ᾿Αζαρίας ὁ ἱερεὺς ὁ πρῶτος καὶ οἱ ἱερεῖς, καὶ ἰδοὺ αὐτὸς λεπρὸς ἐν τῷ μετώπῳ· καὶ κατέσπευσαν αὐτὸν ἐκεῖθεν, καὶ γὰρ αὐτὸς ἔσπευσεν ἐξελθεῖν, ὅτι ἤλεγξεν αὐτὸν Κύριος. 21 καὶ ᾿Οζίας ὁ βασιλεὺς ἦν λεπρὸς ἕως ἡμέρας τῆς τελευτῆς αὐτοῦ, καὶ ἐν οἴκῳ ἀφφουσὼθ ἐκάθητο λεπρός, ὅτι ἀπεσχίσθη ἀπὸ οἴκου Κυρίου· καὶ ᾿Ιωάθαμ ὁ υἱὸς αὐτοῦ ἐπὶ τῆς βασιλείας αὐτοῦ κρίνων τὸν λαὸν τῆς γῆς. 22 καὶ οἱ λοιποὶ λόγοι ᾿Οζίου οἱ πρῶτοι καὶ οἱ ἔσχατοι γεγραμμένοι ὑπὸ ᾿Ιεσσίου τοῦ προφήτου. 23 καὶ ἐκοιμήθη ᾿Οζίας μετὰ τῶν πατέρων αὐτοῦ, καὶ ἔθαψαν αὐτὸν μετὰ τῶν πατέρων αὐτοῦ ἐν τῷ πεδίῳ τῆς ταφῆς τῶν βασιλέων, ὅτι εἶπαν ὅτι λεπρός ἐστι. καὶ ἐβασίλευσεν ᾿Ιωάθαμ υἱὸς αὐτοῦ ἀντ’ αὐτοῦ.
