1 And when all these things were finished, all Israel that were found in the cities of Juda went out, and broke in pieces the pillars, and cut down the groves, and tore down the high places and the altars out of all Judea and Benjamin, also of Ephraim and Manasse, till they made an end: and all Israel returned, every one to his inheritance, and to their cities. 2 And Ezekias appointed the courses of the priests and the Levites, and the courses of each one according to his ministry, to the priests and to the Levites, for the whole-burnt-offering, and for the peace-offering, and to praise, and to give thanks, and to minister in the gates, [and] in the courts of the house of the Lord. 3 And the king’s proportion out of his substance [was appointed] for the whole-burnt-offerings, the morning and the evening one, and the whole-burnt-offerings for the sabbaths, and for the new moons, and for the feasts that were ordered in the law of the Lord. 4 And they told the people who dwelt in Jerusalem, to give the portion of the priests and the Levites, that they might be strong in the ministry of the house of the Lord. 5 And as he gave the command, Israel brought abundantly first-fruits of corn, and wine, and oil, and honey, and every fruit of the field: and the children of Israel and Juda brought tithes of everything abundantly. 6 And they that dwelt in the cities of Juda themselves also brought tithes of calves and sheep, and tithes of goats, and consecrated them to the Lord their God, and they brought them and laid tem in heaps. 7 In the third month the heaps began to be piled, and in the seventh month they were finished. 8 And Ezekias and the princes came and saw the heaps, and blessed the Lord, and his people Israel. 9 Then Ezekias enquired of the priests and the Levites concerning the heaps. 10 And Azarias the priest, the chief over the house of Sadoc, spoke to him, and said, From the time that the first-fruits began to be brought into the house of the Lord, we have eaten and drunk, and left even abundantly; for the Lord has blessed his people, and we have left to this amount. 11 And Ezekias told them yet farther to prepare chambers for the house of the Lord; and they prepared [them], 12 and they brought thither the first-fruits and the tithes faithfully: and Chonenias the Levite was superintendent over them, and Semei his brother was next. 13 and Jeiel, and Ozias, and Naeth, and Asael, and Jerimoth, and Jozabad, and Eliel, and Samachia, and Maath, and Banaias, and his sons, were appointed by Chonenias and Semei his brother, as Ezekias the king, and Azarias who was over the house of the Lord commanded. 14 And Core, the [son] of Jemna the Levite, the porter eastward, [was] over the gifts, to distribute the first-fruits of the Lord, and the most holy things, 15 by the hand of Odom, and Benjamin, and Jesus, and Semei, and Amarias, and Sechonias, by the hand of the priests faithfully, to give to their brethren according to the courses, as well to great as small; 16 besides the increase of males from three years old and upward, to every one entering into the house of the Lord, [a portion] according to a daily rate, for service in the daily courses of their order. 17 This [is] the distribution of the priests according to the houses of their families; and the Levites in their daily courses from twenty years old and upward [were] in [their] order, 18 to assign stations for all the increase of their sons and their daughters, for the whole number: for they faithfully sanctified the holy place. 19 As for the sons of Aaron that executed the priests’ office,-- even those from their cities the men in each several city who were named expressly,-- [were appointed] to give a portion to every male among the priests, and to every one reckoned among the Levites. 20 And Ezekias did so through all Juda, and did that which was good and right before the Lord his God. 21 And in every work which he began in service in the house of the Lord, and in the law, and in the ordinances, he sought his God with all his soul, and wrought, and prospered. ΚΑΙ ὡς συνετελέσθη πάντα ταῦτα, ἐξῆλθε πᾶς ᾿Ισραὴλ οἱ εὑρεθέντες ἐν πόλεσιν ᾿Ιούδα καὶ συνέτριψαν τὰς στήλας καὶ ἔκοψαν τά ἄλση καὶ κατέσπασαν τὰ ὑψηλὰ καὶ τοὺς βωμοὺς ἀπὸ πάσης τῆς ᾿Ιουδαίας καὶ Βενιαμίν, καὶ ἐξ ᾿Εφραὶμ καὶ ἀπὸ Μανασσῆ ἕως εἰς τέλος, καὶ ἐπέστρεψαν πᾶς ᾿Ισραὴλ ἕκαστος εἰς τὴν κληρονομίαν αὐτοῦ καὶ εἰς τὰς πόλεις αὐτῶν. 2 καὶ ἔταξεν ᾿Εζεκίας τὰς ἐφημερίας τῶν ἱερέων καὶ τῶν Λευιτῶν καὶ τὰς ἐφημερίας ἑκάστου κατὰ τὴν ἑαυτοῦ λειτουργίαν τοῖς ἱερεῦσι καὶ τοῖς Λευίταις εἰς τὴν ὁλοκαύτωσιν καὶ εἰς τὴν θυσίαν τοῦ σωτηρίου καὶ αἰνεῖν καὶ ἐξομολογεῖσθαι καὶ λειτουργεῖν ἐν ταῖς πύλαις ἐν ταῖς αὐλαῖς οἴκου Κυρίου. 3 καὶ μερὶς τοῦ βασιλέως ἐκ τῶν ὑπαρχόντων αὐτοῦ εἰς τὰς ὁλοκαυτώσεις τὴν πρωϊνὴν καὶ τὴν δειλινὴν καὶ ὁλοκαυτώσεις εἰς τὰ σάββατα καὶ εἰς τὰς νουμηνίας καὶ εἰς τὰς ἑορτὰς τὰς γεγραμμένας ἐν τῷ νόμῳ Κυρίου. 4 καὶ εἶπαν τῷ λαῷ τοῖς κατοικοῦσιν ἐν ῾Ιερουσαλὴμ δοῦναι τὴν μερίδα τῶν ἱερέων καὶ τῶν Λευιτῶν, ὅπως κατισχύσωσιν ἐν τῇ λειτουργίᾳ οἴκου Κυρίου. 5 καὶ ὡς προσέταξε τὸν λόγον, ἐπλεόνασεν ᾿Ισραὴλ ἀπαρχὴν σίτου καὶ οἴνου καὶ ἐλαίου καὶ μέλιτος καὶ πᾶν γέννημα ἀγροῦ, καὶ ἐπιδέκατα πάντα εἰς πλῆθος ἤνεγκαν οἱ υἱοὶ ᾿Ισραὴλ καὶ ᾿Ιούδα. 6 καὶ οἱ κατοικοῦντες ἐν ταῖς πόλεσιν ᾿Ιούδα καὶ αὐτοὶ ἤνεγκαν ἐπιδέκατα μόσχων καὶ προβάτων καὶ ἐπιδέκατα αἰγῶν καὶ ἡγίασαν τῷ Κυρίῳ Θεῷ αὐτῶν καὶ εἰσήνεγκαν καὶ ἔθηκαν σωροὺς σωρούς· 7 ἐν τῷ μηνὶ τῷ τρίτῳ ἤρξαντο οἱ σωροὶ θεμελιοῦσθαι, καὶ ἐν τῷ μηνὶ τῷ ἑβδόμῳ συνετελέσθησαν. 8 καὶ ἦλθεν ᾿Εζεκίας καὶ οἱ ἄρχοντες καὶ εἶδον τοὺς σωροὺς καὶ ηὐλόγησαν τὸν Κύριον καὶ τὸν λαὸν αὐτοῦ ᾿Ισραήλ. 9 καὶ ἐπυνθάνετο ᾿Εζεκίας τῶν ἱερέων καὶ τῶν Λευιτῶν ὑπὲρ τῶν σωρῶν, 10 καὶ εἶπε πρὸς αὐτὸν ᾿Αζαρίας ὁ ἱερεὺς ὁ ἄρχων εἰς οἶκον Σαδὼκ καὶ εἶπεν· ἐξ οὗ ἦρκται ἡ ἀπαρχὴ φέρεσθαι εἰς οἶκον Κυρίου, ἐφάγομεν καὶ ἐπίομεν καὶ κατελίπομεν ἕως εἰς πλῆθος, ὅτι Κύριος ηὐλόγησε τὸν λαὸν αὐτοῦ, καὶ κατελίπομεν ἐπὶ τὸ πλῆθος τοῦτο. 11 καὶ εἶπεν ᾿Εζεκίας ἔτι ἑτοιμάσαι παστοφόρια εἰς οἶκον Κυρίου, καὶ ἡτοίμασαν. 12 καὶ ἤνεγκαν ἐκεῖ τὰς ἀπαρχὰς καὶ τὰ ἐπιδέκατα ἐν πίστει, καὶ ἐπ’ αὐτῶν ἐπιστάτης Χωνενίας ὁ Λευίτης, καὶ Σεμεΐ ὁ ἀδελφὸς αὐτοῦ διαδεχόμενος, 13 καὶ ᾿Ιεϊὴλ καὶ ᾿Οζαζίας καὶ Ναὲθ καὶ ᾿Ασαὴλ καὶ ῾Ιεριμὼθ καὶ ᾿Ιωζαβὰδ καὶ ᾿Ελιὴλ καὶ Σαμαχία καὶ Μαὰθ καὶ Βαναΐας καὶ οἱ υἱοὶ αὐτοῦ καθεσταμένοι διὰ Χωνενίου καὶ Σεμεΐ τοῦ ἀδελφοῦ αὐτοῦ, καθὼς προσέταξεν ᾿Εζεκίας ὁ βασιλεὺς καὶ ᾿Αζαρίας ὁ ἡγούμενος οἴκου Κυρίου. 14 καὶ Κωρὴ ὁ τοῦ ᾿Ιεμνὰ ὁ Λευίτης ὁ πυλωρὸς κατὰ ἀνατολὰς ἐπὶ τῶν δομάτων δοῦναι τὰς ἀπαρχὰς Κυρίου καὶ τὰ ἅγια τῶν ἁγίων 15 διὰ χειρὸς ᾿Οδὸμ καὶ Βενιαμὶν καὶ ᾿Ιησοῦς καὶ Σεμεΐ καὶ ᾿Αμαρίας, καὶ Σεχονίας διὰ χειρὸς τῶν ἱερέων ἐν πίστει δοῦναι τοῖς ἀδελφοῖς αὐτῶν κατὰ τὰς ἐφημερίας, κατὰ τὸν μέγαν καὶ τὸν μικρόν, 16 ἐκτὸς τῆς ἐπιγονῆς τῶν ἀρσενικῶν ἀπὸ τριετοῦς καὶ ἐπάνω, παντὶ τῷ εἰσπορευομένῳ εἰς οἶκον Κυρίου, εἰς λόγον ἡμερῶν εἰς ἡμέραν, εἰς λειτουργίαν ἐφημερίαις διατάξεως αὐτῶν. 17 οὗτος ὁ καταλοχισμὸς τῶν ἱερέων κατ’ οἴκους πατριῶν, καὶ οἱ Λευῖται ἐν ταῖς ἐφημερίαις αὐτῶν ἀπὸ εἰκοσαετοῦς καὶ ἐπάνω ἐν διατάξει, 18 ἐν καταλοχίαις, ἐν πάσῃ ἐπιγονῇ υἱῶν αὐτῶν καὶ θυγατέρων αὐτῶν εἰς πᾶν πλῆθος, ὅτι ἐν πίστει ἥγνισαν τὸ ἅγιον 19 τοῖς υἱοῖς ᾿Ααρὼν τοῖς ἱερατεύουσι, καὶ οἱ ἀπὸ τῶν πόλεων αὐτῶν ἐν πάσῃ πόλει καὶ πόλει ἄνδρες, οἳ ὠνομάσθησαν ἐν ὀνόματι, δοῦναι μερίδα παντὶ ἀρσενικῷ ἐν τοῖς ἱερεῦσι καὶ παντὶ καταριθμουμένῳ ἐν τοῖς Λευίταις. 20 καὶ ἐποίησεν οὕτως ᾿Εζεκίας ἐν παντὶ ᾿Ιούδᾳ καὶ ἐποίησε τὸ καλὸν καὶ τὸ εὐθὲς ἐναντίον τοῦ Κυρίου Θεοῦ αὐτοῦ. 21 καὶ ἐν παντὶ ἔργῳ, ᾧ ἤρξατο ἐν ἐργασίᾳ ἐν οἴκῳ Κυρίου, καὶ ἐν τῷ νόμῳ καὶ ἐν τοῖς προστάγμασιν ἐξεζήτησε τὸν Θεὸν αὐτοῦ ἐξ ὅλης ψυχῆς αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐποίησε καὶ εὐωδώθη.
