1 Achaz was five and twenty years old when he began to reign, and he reigned sixteen years in Jerusalem: and he did not that which was right in the sight of the Lord, as David his father. 2 But he walked in the ways of the kings of Israel, for he made graven images. 3 And [he sacrificed] to their idols in the valley of Benennom, and passed his children through the fire, according to the abominations of the heathen, whom the Lord cast out from before the children of Israel. 4 And he burnt incense upon the high places, and upon the roofs, and under every shady tree. 5 And the Lord his God delivered him into the hand of the king of Syria; and he smote him, and took captive of them a great band of prisoners, and carried him to Damascus. Also [God] delivered him into the hands of the king of Israel, who smote him with a great slaughter. 6 And Phakee the son of Romelias king of Israel, slew in Juda in one day a hundred and twenty thousand mighty men; because they had forsaken the Lord God of their fathers. 7 And Zechri, a mighty man of Ephraim, slew Maasias the king’s son, and Ezrican the chief of his house, and Elcana the king’s deputy. 8 And the children of Israel took captive of their brethren three hundred thousand, women, and sons, and daughters, and they spoiled them of much property, and brought the spoils to Samaria. 9 And there was there a prophet of the Lord, his name [was] Oded: and he went out to meet the host that were coming to Samaria, and said to them, Behold, the wrath of the Lord God of your fathers [is] upon Juda, and he has delivered them into your hands, and ye have slain them in wrath, and it has reached even to heaven. 10 And now ye talk of keeping the children of Juda and Jerusalem for servants and handmaidens. Lo, am I not with you to testify for the Lord your God? 11 And now hearken to me, and restore the prisoners of your brethren whom ye have taken: for the fierce anger of the Lord [is] upon you. 12 And the chiefs of the sons of Ephraim rose up, Udias the son of Joanas, and Barachias the son of Mosolamoth, and Ezekias the son of Sellem, and Amasias the son of Eldai, against those that came from the war, 13 and said to them, Ye shall not bring in hither the prisoners to us, for whereas sin against the Lord [is] upon us, ye mean to add to our sins, and to our trespass: for our sin [is] great, and the fierce anger of the Lord [is] upon Israel. 14 So the warriors left the prisoners and the spoils before the princes and all the congregation. 15 And the men who were called by name rose up, and took hold of the prisoners, and clothed all the naked from the spoils, and gave them garments and shoes, and gave them [food] to eat, and [oil] to anoint themselves [with], and they helped also every one that was weak with asses, and placed them in Jericho, the city of palm-trees, with their brethren; and they returned to Samaria. 16 At that time king Achaz sent to the king of Assyria to help him, and on this occasion, 17 because the Idumeans had attacked [him], and smitten Juda, and taken a number of prisoners. 18 Also the Philistines had made an attack on the cities of the plain country, and the cities of the south of Juda, and taken Baethsamys, and Aelon, and Gaderoth, and Socho and her villages, and Thamna and her villages, and Gamzo and her villages: and they dwelt there. 19 For the Lord humbled Juda because of Achaz king of Juda, because he grievously departed from the Lord. 20 And there came against him Thalgaphellasar king of Assyria, and he afflicted him. 21 And Achaz took the things [that were] in the house of the Lord, and the things in the house of the king, and of the princes, and gave them to the king of Assyria: but he was no help to him, 22 but only [troubled him] in his affliction: and he departed yet more from the Lord, and king Achaz said, 23 I will seek after the gods of Damascus that smite me. And he said, Forasmuch as the gods of the king of Syria themselves strengthen them, therefore will I sacrifice to them, and they will help me. But they became a stumbling-block to him, and to all Israel. 24 And Achaz removed the vessels of the house of the Lord, and cut them in pieces, and shut the doors of the house of the Lord, and made to himself altars in every corner in Jerusalem: 25 and in each several city in Juda he made high places to burn incense to strange gods: and they provoked the Lord God of their fathers. 26 And the rest of his acts, and his deeds, the first and the last, behold, [they are] written in the book of the kings of Juda and Israel. 27 And Achaz slept with his fathers, and was buried in the city of David; for they did not bring him into the sepulchres of the kings of Israel: and Ezekias his son reigned in his stead. ΥΙΟΣ εἴκοσι καὶ πέντε ἐτῶν ἦν ῎Αχαζ ἐν τῷ βασιλεύειν αὐτὸν καὶ ἑκκαίδεκα ἔτη ἐβασίλευσεν ἐν ῾Ιερουσαλήμ· καὶ οὐκ ἐποίησε τὸ εὐθὲς ἐνώπιον Κυρίου, ὡς Δαυὶδ ὁ πατὴρ αὐτοῦ. 2 καὶ ἐπορεύθη κατὰ τὰς ὁδοὺς βασιλέων ᾿Ισραήλ· καὶ γὰρ γλυπτὰ ἐποίησε 3 τοῖς εἰδώλοις αὐτῶν καὶ ἔθυεν ἐν Βενεννὸμ καὶ διῆγε τὰ τέκνα αὐτοῦ διὰ πυρὸς κατὰ τὰ βδελύγματα τῶν ἐθνῶν, ὧν ἐξωλόθρευσε Κύριος ἀπὸ προσώπου υἱῶν ᾿Ισραήλ, 4 καὶ ἐθυμία ἐπὶ τῶν ὑψηλῶν καὶ ἐπὶ τῶν δωμάτων καὶ ὑποκάτω παντὸς ξύλου ἀλσώδους. 5 καὶ παρέδωκεν αὐτὸν Κύριος ὁ Θεὸς αὐτοῦ διὰ χειρὸς βασιλέως Συρίας, καὶ ἐπάταξεν ἐν αὐτῷ καὶ ᾐχμαλώτευσεν ἐξ αὐτῶν αἰχμαλωσίαν πολλὴν καὶ ἤγαγεν εἰς Δαμασκόν· καὶ γὰρ εἰς χεῖρας βασιλέως ᾿Ισραὴλ παρέδωκεν αὐτόν, καὶ ἐπάταξεν ἐν αὐτῷ πληγὴν μεγάλην. 6 καὶ ἀπέκτεινε Φακεὲ ὁ τοῦ Ῥομελία βασιλεὺς ᾿Ισραὴλ ἐν ᾿Ιούδᾳ ἐν μιᾷ ἡμέρᾳ ἑκατὸν εἴκοσι χιλιάδας ἀνδρῶν δυνατῶν ἰσχύϊ ἐν τῷ καταλιπεῖν αὐτοὺς Κύριον τὸν Θεὸν τῶν πατέρων αὐτῶν. 7 καὶ ἀπέκτεινε Ζεχρὶ ὁ δυνατὸς τοῦ ᾿Εφραὶμ τὸν Μαασὰ τὸν υἱὸν τοῦ βασιλέως καὶ τὸν ᾿Εζρικὰν ἡγούμενον τοῦ οἴκου αὐτοῦ καὶ τὸν ῾Ελκανὰ τὸν διάδοχον τοῦ βασιλέως. 8 καὶ ᾐχμαλώτισαν οἱ υἱοὶ ᾿Ισραὴλ ἀπὸ τῶν ἀδελφῶν αὐτῶν τριακοσίας χιλιάδας, γυναῖκας καὶ υἱοὺς καὶ θυγατέρας, καὶ σκῦλα πολλὰ ἐσκύλευσαν ἐξ αὐτῶν καὶ ἤνεγκαν τὰ σκῦλα εἰς Σαμάρειαν. 9 καὶ ἐκεῖ ἦν ὁ προφήτης τοῦ Κυρίου, ᾿Ωδὴδ ὄνομα αὐτῷ, καὶ ἐξῆλθεν εἰς ἀπάντησιν τῆς δυνάμεως τῶν ἐρχομένων εἰς Σαμάρειαν καὶ εἶπεν αὐτοῖς· ἰδοὺ ὀργὴ Κυρίου Θεοῦ τῶν πατέρων ὑμῶν ἐπὶ ᾿Ιούδαν, καὶ παρέδωκεν αὐτοὺς εἰς τὰς χεῖρας ὑμῶν, καὶ ἀπεκτείνατε ἐν αὐτοῖς ἐν ὀργῇ· καὶ ἕως τῶν οὐρανῶν ἔφθακε. 10 καὶ νῦν υἱοὺς ᾿Ιούδα καὶ ῾Ιερουσαλὴμ ὑμεῖς λέγετε κατακτήσασθαι εἰς δούλους καὶ δούλας· οὐκ ἰδού εἰμι μεθ’ ὑμῶν μαρτυρῆσαι Κυρίῳ Θεῷ ὑμῶν; 11 καὶ νῦν ἀκούσατέ μου καὶ ἀποστρέψατε τὴν αἰχμαλωσίαν, ἣν ᾐχμαλωτεύσατε τῶν ἀδελφῶν ὑμῶν, ὅτι ὀργὴ θυμοῦ Κυρίου ἐφ’ ὑμῖν. 12 καὶ ἀνέστησαν ἄρχοντες ἀπὸ τῶν υἱῶν ᾿Εφραίμ, Οὐδείας ὁ τοῦ ᾿Ιωανοῦ καὶ Βαραχίας ὁ τοῦ Μωσολαμὼθ καὶ ᾿Εζεκίας ὁ τοῦ Σελλὴμ καὶ ᾿Αμασίας ὁ τοῦ ᾿Ελδαΐ, ἐπὶ τοὺς ἐρχομένους ἀπὸ τοῦ πολέμου, 13 καὶ εἶπαν αὐτοῖς· οὐ μὴ εἰσαγάγητε τὴν αἰχμαλωσίαν ὧδε πρὸς ἡμᾶς, ὅτι εἰς τὸ ἁμαρτάνειν τῷ Κυρίῳ ἐφ’ ἡμᾶς ὑμεῖς λέγετε, προσθεῖναι ἐπὶ ταῖς ἁμαρτίαις ἡμῶν καὶ ἐπὶ τὴν ἄγνοιαν ἡμῶν, ὅτι πολλὴ ἡ ἁμαρτία ἡμῶν καὶ ὀργὴ θυμοῦ Κυρίου ἐπὶ τὸν ᾿Ισραήλ. 14 καὶ ἀφῆκαν οἱ πολεμισταὶ τὴν αἰχμαλωσίαν καὶ τὰ σκῦλα ἐναντίον τῶν ἀρχόντων καὶ πάσης τῆς ἐκκλησίας. 15 καὶ ἀνέστησαν ἄνδρες, οἳ ἐπεκλήθησαν ἐν ὀνόματι, καὶ ἀντελάβοντο τῆς αἰχμαλωσίας καὶ πάντας τοὺς γυμνοὺς περιέβαλον ἀπὸ τῶν σκύλων καὶ ἐνέδυσαν αὐτοὺς καὶ ὑπέδυσαν αὐτοὺς καὶ ἔδωκαν φαγεῖν καὶ ἀλείψασθαι καὶ ἀντελάβοντο καὶ ἐν ὑποζυγίοις παντὸς ἀσθενοῦντος καὶ κατέστησαν αὐτοὺς εἰς ῾Ιεριχὼ πόλιν Φοινίκων πρὸς τοὺς ἀδελφοὺς αὐτῶν, καὶ ἐπέστρεψαν εἰς Σαμάρειαν. 16 ᾿Εν τῷ καιρῷ ἐκείνῳ ἀπέστειλεν ὁ βασιλεὺς ῎Αχαζ πρὸς βασιλέα ᾿Ασσοὺρ βοηθῆσαι αὐτῷ καὶ ἐν τούτῳ, 17 ὅτι οἱ ᾿Ιδουμαῖοι ἐπέθεντο καὶ ἐπάταξαν ἐν ᾿Ιούδᾳ καὶ ᾐχμαλώτισαν αἰχμαλωσίαν 18 καὶ οἱ ἀλλόφυλοι ἐπέθεντο ἐπὶ τὰς πόλεις τῆς πεδινῆς καὶ ἀπὸ λιβὸς τοῦ ᾿Ιούδα καὶ ἔλαβον τὴν Βαιθσαμὺς καὶ τὴν ᾿Αϊλὼν καὶ τὴν Γαδηρὼθ καὶ τὴν Σωχὼ καὶ τὰς κώμας αὐτῆς καὶ τὴν Θαμνὰ καὶ τὰς κώμας αὐτῆς καὶ τὴν Γαμζὼ καὶ τὰς κώμας αὐτῆς καὶ κατῴκησαν ἐκεῖ· 19 ὅτι ἐταπείνωσε Κύριος τὸν ᾿Ιούδαν διὰ ῎Αχαζ βασιλέα ᾿Ιούδα, ὅτι ἀπέστη ἀποστάσει ἀπὸ Κυρίου. 20 καὶ ἦλθεν ἐπ’ αὐτὸν Θαγλαθφελλασὰρ βασιλεὺς ᾿Ασσοὺρ καὶ ἐπάταξεν αὐτόν. 21 καὶ ἔλαβεν ῎Αχαζ τὰ ἐν οἴκῳ Κυρίου καὶ τὰ ἐν οἴκῳ τοῦ βασιλέως καὶ τῶν ἀρχόντων καὶ ἔδωκε τῷ βασιλεῖ ᾿Ασσοὺρ καὶ οὐκ εἰς βοήθειαν αὐτῷ ἦν, 22 ἀλλ’ ἢ τῷ θλιβῆναι αὐτόν. καὶ προσέθηκε τοῦ ἀποστῆναι ἀπὸ Κυρίου. καὶ εἶπεν ὁ βασιλεὺς ῎Αχαζ· 23 ἐκζητήσω τοὺς θεοὺς Δαμασκοῦ τοὺς τύπτοντάς με· καὶ εἶπεν ὅτι θεοὶ βασιλέως Συρίας αὐτοὶ κατισχύσουσιν αὐτούς, αὐτοῖς τοίνυν θύσω, καὶ ἀντιλήψονταί μου. καὶ αὐτοὶ ἐγένοντο αὐτῷ εἰς σκῶλον καὶ παντὶ ᾿Ισραήλ. 24 καὶ ἀπέστησεν ῎Αχαζ τὰ σκεύη οἴκου Κυρίου καὶ κατέκοψεν αὐτὰ καὶ ἔκλεισε τὰς θύρας οἴκου Κυρίου καὶ ἐποίησεν ἑαυτῷ θυσιαστήρια ἐν πάσῃ γωνίᾳ ἐν ῾Ιερουσαλήμ· 25 καὶ ἐν πάσῃ πόλει καὶ πόλει ἐν ᾿Ιούδᾳ ἐποίησεν ὑψηλὰ θυμιᾶν θεοῖς ἀλλοτρίοις, καὶ παρώργισαν Κύριον τὸν Θεὸν τῶν πατέρων αὐτῶν. 26 καὶ οἱ λοιποὶ λόγοι αὐτοῦ καὶ αἱ πράξεις αὐτοῦ αἱ πρῶται καὶ ἔσχαται ἰδοὺ γεγραμμέναι ἐπὶ βιβλίῳ βασιλέων ᾿Ιούδα καὶ ᾿Ισραήλ. 27 καὶ ἐκοιμήθη ῎Αχαζ μετὰ τῶν πατέρων αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐτάφη ἐν πόλει Δαυίδ, ὅτι οὐκ εἰσήνεγκαν αὐτὸν εἰς τοὺς τάφους τῶν βασιλέων ᾿Ισραήλ· καὶ ἐβασίλευσεν ᾿Εζεκίας υἱὸς αὐτοῦ ἀντ’ αὐτοῦ.
