1 And the people of the land took Joachaz the son of Josias, and anointed him, and made him king over Jerusalem in the room of his father. 2 Joachaz [was] twenty-three years old when he began to reign, and he reigned three months in Jerusalem: 2α and his mother’s name was Amital, daughter of Jeremias of Lobna. 2β And he did that which was evil in the sight of the Lord, according to all that his fathers had done. 2γ And Pharao Nechao bound him in Deblatha in the land of Aemath, that he might not reign in Jerusalem. 3 And the king brought him over to Egypt; and imposed a tribute on the land, a hundred talents of silver and a talent of gold. 4 And Pharao Nechao made Eliakim the son of Josias king over Juda in the room of his father Josias, and changed his name [to] Joakim. And Pharao Nechao took his brother Joachaz and brought him into Egypt, and he died there: but [he] had given the silver and gold to Pharao. 4α At that time the land began to be taxed to give the money at the command of Pharao; and every one as he could borrowed the silver and the gold of the people of the land, to give to Pharao Nechao. 5 Joachim was twenty-five years old when he began to reign, and he reigned eleven years in Jerusalem: and his mother’s name [was] Zechora, daughter of Nerias of Rama. And he did that which was evil in the sight of the Lord, according to all that his fathers did. 5α In his days came Nabuchodonosor king of Babylon into the land, and he served him three years, and [then] revolted from him. 5β And the Lord sent against them the Chaldeans, and plundering parties of Syrians, and plundering parties of the Moabites, and of the children of Ammon, and of Samaria; but after this they departed, according to the word of the Lord by the hand of his servants the prophets. 5γ Nevertheless the wrath of the Lord was upon Juda, so that they should be removed from his presence, because of the sins of Manasses in all that he did, 5δ and for the innocent blood which Joakim shed, for he had filled Jerusalem with innocent blood; yet the Lord would not utterly destroy them. 6 And Nabuchodonosor king of Babylon came up against him, and bound him with brazen fetters, and carried him away to Babylon. 7 And he carried away a part of the vessels of the house of the Lord to Babylon, and put them in his temple in Babylon. 8 And the rest of the acts of Joakim, and all that he did, behold, [are] not these things written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Juda? And Joakim slept with his fathers, and was buried with his fathers in Ganozae: and Jechonias his son reigned in his stead. 9 Jechonias [was] eight years old when he began to reign, and he reigned three months and ten days in Jerusalem, and did that which was evil in the sight of the Lord. 10 And at the turn of the year, king Nabuchodonosor sent, and brought him to Babylon, with the precious vessels of the house of the Lord, and made Sedekias his father’s brother king over Juda and Jerusalem. 11 Sedekias [was] twenty-one years old when he began to reign, and he reigned eleven years in Jerusalem. 12 And he did that which was evil in the sight of the Lord his God: he was not ashamed before the prophet Jeremias, nor because of the word of the Lord; 13 in that he rebelled against king Nabuchodonosor, which he adjured him by God [not to do]: but he stiffened his neck, and hardened his heart, so as not to return to the Lord God of Israel. 14 And all the great men of Juda, and the priests, and the people of the land transgressed abundantly in the abominations of the heathen, and polluted the house of the Lord which [was] in Jerusalem. 15 And the Lord God of their fathers sent by the hand of his prophets; rising early and sending his messengers, for he spared his people, and his sanctuary. 16 Nevertheless they sneered at his messengers, and set at nought his words, and mocked his prophets, until the wrath of the Lord rose up against his people, till there was no remedy. 17 And he brought against them the king of the Chaldeans, and slew their young men with the sword in the house of his sanctuary, and did not spare Sedekias, and had no mercy upon their virgins, and they led away their old men: he delivered all things into their hands. 18 And all the vessels of the house of God, the great and the small, and the treasures of the house of the Lord, and all the treasures of the king and the great men; he brought all to Babylon. 19 And he burnt the house of the Lord, and broke down the wall of Jerusalem, and burnt its palaces with fire, and [utterly destroyed] every beautiful vessel. 20 And he carried away the remnant to Babylon; and they were servants to him and to his sons until [the establishment of] the kingdom of the Medes. 21 That the word of the Lord by the mouth of Jeremias might be fulfilled, until the land should enjoy its sabbaths in resting [and] sabbath keeping all the days of its desolation, till the accomplishment of seventy years. 22 In the first year of Cyrus king of the Persians, after the fulfillment of the word of the Lord by the mouth of Jeremias, the Lord stirred up the spirit of Cyrus king of the Persians, and told him to make proclamation in writing throughout all his kingdom, saying, 23 Thus says Cyrus king of the Persians to all the kingdoms of the earth, The Lord God of heaven has given me [power], and he has commanded me to build a house to him in Jerusalem, in Judea. Who [is there] of you of all his people? his God shall be with him, and let him go up. ΚΑΙ ἔλαβεν ὁ λαὸς τῆς γῆς τὸν ᾿Ιωάχαζ υἱὸν ᾿Ιωσίου καὶ ἔχρισαν αὐτόν, καὶ κατέστησαν αὐτὸν ἀντὶ τοῦ πατρὸς αὐτοῦ εἰς βασιλέα ἐπὶ ᾿Ιερουσαλήμ. 2 υἱὸς εἴκοσι καὶ τριῶν ἐτῶν ᾿Ιωάχαζ ἐν τῷ βασιλεύειν αὐτὸν καὶ τρίμηνον ἐβασίλευσεν ἐν ῾Ιερουσαλήμ, 2α καὶ ὄνομα τῆς μητρὸς αὐτοῦ ᾿Αμιτὰλ θυγάτηρ ῾Ιερεμίου ἐκ Λοβενά. 2β καὶ ἐποίησε τὸ πονηρὸν ἐνώπιον Κυρίου κατὰ πάντα, ἃ ἐποίησαν οἱ πατέρες αὐτοῦ. 2γ καὶ ἔδησεν αὐτὸν φαραὼ Νεχαὼ ἐν Δεβλαθὰ ἐν γῇ Αἰμάθ, τοῦ μὴ βασιλεύειν αὐτὸν ἐν ῾Ιερουσαλήμ, 3 καὶ μετήγαγεν αὐτὸν ὁ βασιλεὺς εἰς Αἴγυπτον, καὶ ἐπέβαλε φόρον ἐπὶ τὴν γῆν ἑκατὸν τάλαντα ἀργυρίου καὶ τάλαντον χρυσίου. 4 καὶ κατέστησε φαραὼ Νεχαὼ τὸν ᾿Ελιακὶμ υἱὸν ᾿Ιωσίου βασιλέα ἐπὶ ᾿Ιούδα ἀντὶ ᾿Ιωσίου τοῦ πατρὸς αὐτοῦ καὶ μετέστρεψε τὸ ὄνομα αὐτοῦ ᾿Ιωακίμ· καὶ τὸν ᾿Ιωάχαζ ἀδελφὸν αὐτοῦ ἔλαβε φαραὼ Νεχαώ, καὶ εἰσήγαγεν αὐτὸν εἰς Αἴγυπτον, καὶ ἀπέθανεν ἐκεῖ. 4α καὶ τὸ ἀργύριον καὶ τὸ χρυσίον ἔδωκε τῷ φαραῷ· τότε ἤρξατο ἡ γῆ φορολογεῖσθαι τοῦ δοῦναι τὸ ἀργύριον ἐπὶ στόμα φαραώ, καὶ ἕκαστος κατὰ δύναμιν ἀπῄτει τὸ ἀργύριον καὶ τὸ χρυσίον παρὰ τοῦ λαοῦ τῆς γῆς δοῦναι φαραῷ Νεχαῷ. 5 ῍Ων εἴκοσι καὶ πέντε ἐτῶν ᾿Ιωακὶμ ἐν τῷ βασιλεύειν αὐτὸν καὶ ἕνδεκα ἔτη ἐβασίλευσεν ἐν ῾Ιερουσαλήμ, καὶ ὄνομα τῆς μητρὸς αὐτοῦ Ζεχωρὰ θυγάτηρ Νηρίου ἐκ Ῥαμά. καὶ ἐποίησε τὸ πονηρὸν ἐναντίον Κυρίου κατὰ πάντα ὅσα ἐποίησαν οἱ πατέρες αὐτοῦ. 5α ἐν ταῖς ἡμέραις αὐτοῦ ἦλθε Ναβουχοδονόσορ ὁ βασιλεὺς Βαβυλῶνος εἰς τὴν γῆν, καὶ ἦν αὐτῷ δουλεύων τρία ἔτη καὶ ἀπέστη ἀπ’ αὐτοῦ. 5β καὶ ἀπέστειλε Κύριος ἐπ’ αὐτοὺς τοὺς Χαλδαίους καὶ λῃστήρια Σύρων καὶ λῃστήρια Μωαβιτῶν καὶ υἱῶν ᾿Αμμὼν καὶ τῆς Σαμαρείας, καὶ ἀπέστησαν μετὰ τὸν λόγον τοῦτον κατὰ τὸν λόγον Κυρίου ἐν χειρὶ τῶν παίδων αὐτοῦ τῶν προφητῶν. 5γ πλὴν θυμὸς Κυρίου ἦν ἐπὶ ᾿Ιούδαν τοῦ ἀποστῆναι αὐτὸν ἀπὸ προσώπου αὐτοῦ διὰ τὰς ἁμαρτίας Μανασσῆ ἐν πᾶσιν, οἷς ἐποίησε, 5δ καὶ ἐν αἵματι ἀθῴῳ, ᾧ ἐξέχεεν ᾿Ιωακὶμ καὶ ἔπλησε τὴν ῾Ιερουσαλὴμ αἵματος ἀθῴου, καὶ οὐκ ἠθέλησε Κύριος ἐξολοθρεῦσαι αὐτούς. 6 καὶ ἀνέβη ἐπ’ αὐτὸν Ναβουχοδονόσορ βασιλεὺς Βαβυλῶνος καὶ ἔδησεν αὐτὸν ἐν χαλκαῖς πέδαις καὶ ἀπήγαγεν αὐτὸν εἰς Βαβυλῶνα. 7 καὶ μέρος τῶν σκευῶν οἴκου Κυρίου ἀπήνεγκεν εἰς Βαβυλῶνα καὶ ἔθηκεν αὐτὰ ἐν τῷ ναῷ αὐτοῦ ἐν Βαβυλῶνι. 8 καὶ τὰ λοιπὰ τῶν λόγων ᾿Ιωακὶμ καὶ πάντα, ἃ ἐποίησεν, οὐκ ἰδοὺ ταῦτα γεγραμμένα ἐν βιβλίῳ λόγων τῶν ἡμερῶν τοῖς βασιλεῦσιν ᾿Ιούδα; καὶ ἐκοιμήθη ᾿Ιωακὶμ μετὰ τῶν πατέρων αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐτάφη ἐν Γανοζὰ μετά τῶν πατέρων αὐτοῦ, καὶ ἐβασίλευσεν ᾿Ιεχονίας υἱὸς αὐτοῦ ἀντ’ αὐτοῦ. 9 ᾿Οκτὼ ἐτῶν ᾿Ιεχονίας ἐν τῷ βασιλεύειν αὐτὸν καὶ τρίμηνον καὶ δέκα ἡμέρας ἐβασίλευσεν ἐν ῾Ιερουσαλὴμ καὶ ἐποίησε τὸ πονηρὸν ἐνώπιον Κυρίου. 10 καὶ ἐπιστρέφοντος τοῦ ἐνιαυτοῦ ἀπέστειλεν ὁ βασιλεὺς Ναβουχοδονόσορ καὶ εἰσήνεγκεν αὐτὸν εἰς Βαβυλῶνα μετὰ τῶν σκευῶν τῶν ἐπιθυμητῶν οἴκου Κυρίου καὶ ἐβασίλευσε Σεδεκίαν ἀδελφὸν τοῦ πατρὸς αὐτοῦ ἐπὶ ᾿Ιούδαν καὶ ῾Ιερουσαλήμ. 11 ᾿Ετῶν εἴκοσιν υἱὸς καὶ ἑνὸς ἔτους Σεδεκίας ἐν τῷ βασιλεύειν αὐτὸν καὶ ἕνδεκα ἔτη ἐβασίλευσεν ἐν ῾Ιερουσαλήμ. 12 καὶ ἐποίησε τὸ πονηρὸν ἐνώπιον Κυρίου Θεοῦ αὐτοῦ, οὐκ ἐνετράπη ἀπὸ προσώπου ῾Ιερεμίου τοῦ προφήτου καὶ ἐκ στόματος Κυρίου 13 ἐν τῷ τὰ πρὸς τὸν βασιλέα Ναβουχοδονόσορ ἀθετῆσαι, ἃ ὥρκισεν αὐτὸν κατὰ τοῦ Θεοῦ καὶ ἐσκλήρυνε τὸν τράχηλον αὐτοῦ καὶ τὴν καρδίαν αὐτοῦ κατίσχυσε τοῦ μὴ ἐπιστρέψαι πρὸς Κύριον Θεὸν ᾿Ισραήλ. 14 καὶ πάντες οἱ ἔνδοξοι ᾿Ιούδα καὶ οἱ ἱερεῖς καὶ ὁ λαὸς τῆς γῆς ἐπλήθυναν τοῦ ἀθετῆσαι ἀθετήματα βδελυγμάτων ἐθνῶν καὶ ἐμίαναν τὸν οἶκον Κυρίου τὸν ἐν ῾Ιερουσαλήμ. 15 καὶ ἐξαπέστειλε Κύριος ὁ Θεὸς τῶν πατέρων αὐτῶν ἐν χειρὶ τῶν προφητῶν αὐτοῦ ὀρθρίζων καὶ ἀποστέλλων τοὺς ἀγγέλους αὐτοῦ, ὅτι ἦν φειδόμενος τοῦ λαοῦ αὐτοῦ καὶ τοῦ ἁγιάσματος αὐτοῦ· 16 καὶ ἦσαν μυκτηρίζοντες τοὺς ἀγγέλους αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐξουθενοῦντες τοὺς λόγους αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐμπαίζοντες ἐν τοῖς προφήταις αὐτοῦ, ἕως ἀνέβη ὁ θυμὸς Κυρίου ἐν τῷ λαῷ αὐτοῦ, ἕως οὐκ ἦν ἴαμα. 17 καὶ ἤγαγεν ἐπ’ αὐτοὺς βασιλέα Χαλδαίων, καὶ ἀπέκτεινε τοὺς νεανίσκους αὐτῶν ἐν ῥομφαίᾳ ἐν οἴκῳ ἁγιάσματος αὐτοῦ καὶ οὐκ ἐφείσατο τοῦ Σεδεκίου καὶ τὰς παρθένους αὐτῶν οὐκ ἠλέησε καὶ τοὺς πρεσβυτέρους αὐτῶν ἀπήγαγον· τὰ πάντα παρέδωκεν ἐν χερσίν αὐτῶν. 18 καὶ πάντα τὰ σκεύη οἴκου τοῦ Θεοῦ τά μεγάλα καὶ τὰ μικρὰ καὶ τοὺς θησαυροὺς οἴκου Κυρίου καὶ πάντας τοὺς θησαυροὺς τοῦ βασιλέως καὶ τῶν μεγιστάνων, πάντα εἰσήνεγκεν εἰς Βαβυλῶνα. 19 καὶ ἐνέπρησε τὸν οἶκον Κυρίου καὶ κατέσκαψε τὸ τεῖχος ῾Ιερουσαλὴμ καὶ τὰς βάρεις αὐτῆς ἐνέπρησεν ἐν πυρὶ καὶ πᾶν σκεῦος ὡραῖον εἰς ἀφανισμόν. 20 καὶ ἀπῴκισε τοὺς καταλοίπους εἰς Βαβυλῶνα, καὶ ἦσαν αὐτῷ καὶ τοῖς υἱοῖς αὐτοῦ εἰς δούλους ἕως βασιλείας Μήδων 21 τοῦ πληρωθῆναι λόγον Κυρίου διὰ στόματος ῾Ιερεμίου ἕως τοῦ προσδέξασθαι τὴν γῆν τὰ σάββατα αὐτῆς σαββατίσαι· πάσας τὰς ἡμέρας ἐρημώσεως αὐτῆς ἐσαββάτισεν εἰς συμπλήρωσιν ἐτῶν ἑβδομήκοντα. 22 ῎Ετους πρώτου Κύρου βασιλέως Περσῶν, μετὰ τὸ πληρωθῆναι ρῆμα Κυρίου διὰ στόματος ῾Ιερεμίου, ἐξήγειρε Κύριος τὸ πνεῦμα Κύρου βασιλέως Περσῶν καὶ παρήγγειλε κηρύξαι ἐν πάσῃ τῇ βασιλείᾳ αὐτοῦ ἐν γραπτῷ λέγων· 23 τάδε λέγει Κῦρος βασιλεὺς Περσῶν πάσαις ταῖς βασιλείαις τῆς γῆς· ἔδωκέ μοι Κύριος ὁ Θεὸς τοῦ οὐρανοῦ, καὶ αὐτὸς ἐνετείλατό μοι οἰκοδομῆσαι οἶκον αὐτῷ ἐν ῾Ιερουσαλὴμ ἐν τῇ ᾿Ιουδαίᾳ. τίς ἐξ ὑμῶν ἐκ παντὸς τοῦ λαοῦ αὐτοῦ; ἔσται Θεὸς αὐτοῦ μετ’ αὐτοῦ, καὶ ἀναβήτω.
