1 Joatham [was] twenty and five years old when he began to reign, and he reigned sixteen years in Jerusalem: and his mother’s name [was] Jerusa, daughter of Sadoc. 2 And he did that which was right in the sight of the Lord, according to all that his father Ozias did: but he went not into the temple of the Lord. And still the people corrupted themselves. 3 He built the high gate of the house of the Lord, and he built much in the wall of Opel. 4 In the mountain of Juda, and in the woods, [he built] both dwelling-places and towers. 5 He fought against the king of the children of Ammon, and prevailed against him: and the children of Ammon gave him even annually a hundred talents of silver, and ten thousand measures of wheat, and ten thousand of barley. These the king of the children of Ammon brought to him annually in the first and second and third years. 6 Joatham grew strong, because he prepared his ways before the Lord his God. 7 And the rest of the acts of Joatham, and his war, and his deeds, behold, [they are] written in the book of the kings of Juda and Israel. 8 [See Appendix. And he reigned twenty-five years, and sixteen years he reigned in Jerusalem.] 9 And Joatham slept with his fathers, and was buried in the city of David: and Achaz his son reigned in his stead. ΥΙΟΣ εἴκοσι καὶ πέντε ἐτῶν ᾿Ιωάθαμ ἐν τῷ βασιλεῦσαι αὐτὸν καὶ ἑκκαίδεκα ἔτη ἐβασίλευσεν ἐν ῾Ιερουσαλήμ, καὶ ὄνομα τῆς μητρὸς αὐτοῦ ῾Ιερουσὰ θυγάτηρ Σαδώκ. 2 καὶ ἐποίησε τὸ εὐθὲς ἐνώπιον Κυρίου κατὰ πάντα, ἃ ἐποίησεν ᾿Οζίας ὁ πατὴρ αὐτοῦ, ἀλλ’ οὐκ εἰσῆλθεν εἰς τὸν ναὸν Κυρίου, καὶ ἔτι ὁ λαὸς κατεφθείρετο. 3 αὐτὸς ᾠκοδόμησε τὴν πύλην οἴκου Κυρίου τὴν ὑψηλὴν καὶ ἐν τείχει τοῦ ᾿Οφλὰ ᾠκοδόμησε πολλά· καὶ πόλεις ᾠκοδόμησεν 4 ἐν ὄρει ᾿Ιούδα καὶ ἐν τοῖς δρυμοῖς καὶ οἰκήσεις καὶ πύργους. 5 αὐτὸς ἐμαχέσατο πρὸς βασιλέα υἱῶν ᾿Αμμὼν καὶ κατίσχυσεν ἐπ’ αὐτόν· καὶ ἐδίδουν αὐτῷ οἱ υἱοὶ ᾿Αμμὼν καὶ κατ’ ἐνιαυτὸν ἑκατὸν τάλαντα ἀργυρίου καὶ δέκα χιλιάδας κόρων πυροῦ καὶ κριθῶν δέκα χιλιάδας· ταῦτα ἔφερεν αὐτῷ βασιλεὺς υἱῶν ᾿Αμμὼν κατ’ ἐνιαυτὸν ἐν τῷ πρώτῳ ἔτει καὶ ἐν τῷ δευτέρῳ καὶ τῷ τρίτῳ. 6 καὶ κατίσχυσεν ᾿Ιωάθαμ, ὅτι ἡτοίμασε τὰς ὁδοὺς αὐτοῦ ἐναντίον Κυρίου Θεοῦ αὐτοῦ. 7 καὶ οἱ λοιποὶ λόγοι ᾿Ιωάθαμ καὶ ὁ πόλεμος καὶ αἱ πράξεις αὐτοῦ ἰδοὺ γεγραμμέναι ἐπὶ βιβλίῳ βασιλέων ᾿Ιούδα καὶ ᾿Ισραήλ. [8 καὶ εἴκοσι καὶ πέντε ἐτῶν ἦν βασιλεύσας, καὶ ἓξ καὶ δέκα ἔτη ἐβασίλευσεν ἐν ῾Ιερουσαλήμ.] 9 καὶ ἐκοιμήθη ᾿Ιωάθαμ μετὰ τῶν πατέρων αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐτάφη ἐν πόλει Δαυίδ, καὶ ἐβασίλευσεν ῎Αχαζ υἱὸς αὐτοῦ ἀντ’ αὐτοῦ.
