1 Now it came to pass in the seventh month that Ismael the son of Nathanias the son of Eleasa of the seed royal, came, and ten men with him, to Godolias to Massepha: and they ate bread there together. 2 And Ismael rose up, and the ten men that were with him, and smote Godolias, whom the king of Babylon had appointed [governor] over the land, 3 and all the Jews that were with him in Massepha, and all the Chaldeans that were found there. 4 And it came to pass on the second day after he had smitten Godolias, and no man knew [of it], 5 that there came men from Sychem, and from Salem, and from Samaria, [even] eighty men, having their beards shaven, and their clothes rent, and beating their breasts, and [they had] manna and frankincense in their hands, to bring [them] into the house of the Lord. 6 And Ismael went out to meet them; [and] they went on and wept: and he said to them, Come in to Godolias. 7 And it came to pass, when they had entered into the midst of the city, [that] he slew them [and cast them] into a pit. 8 But ten men were found there, and they said to Ismael, Slay us not: for we have treasures in the field, wheat and barley, honey and oil. So he passed by, and slew them not in the midst of their brethren. 9 Now the pit into which Ismael cast all whom he smote, is the great pit, which king Asa had made for fear of Baasa king of Israel: [even] this Ismael filled with slain men. 10 And Ismael brought back all the people that were left in Massepha, and the king’s daughter, whom the captain of the guard had committed in charge to Godolias the son of Achicam: and he went away beyond the children of Ammon. 11 And Joanan the son of Caree, and all the leaders of the host that were with him, heard of all the evil deeds which Ismael had done. 12 And they brought all their army, and went to fight against him, and found him near much water in Gabaon. 13 And it came to pass, when all the people that were with Ismael saw Joanan, and the leaders of the host that were with him, 14 that they returned to Joanan. 15 But Ismael escaped with eight men and went to the children of Ammon. 16 And Joanan, and all the leaders of the host that were with him, took all the remnant of the people, whom he [had] brought back from Ismael, mighty men in war, and the women, and the other [property], and the eunuchs, whom they [had] brought back from Gabaon: 17 and they departed, and dwelt in Gaberoth-Hamaam, that is by Bethleem, to go into Egypt, for fear of the Chaldeans: 18 for they were afraid of them, because Ismael had smitten Godolias, whom the king of Babylon made [governor] in the land. (Μασ. ΜΑ´) ΚΑΙ ἐγένετο τῷ μηνὶ τῷ ἑβδόμῳ ἦλθεν ᾿Ισμαὴλ υἰὸς Ναθανίου υἱοῦ ᾿Ελεασὰ ἀπὸ γένους τοῦ βασιλέως καὶ δέκα ἄνδρες μετ’ αὐτοῦ πρὸς Γοδολίαν εἰς Μασσηφά, καὶ ἔφαγον ἐκεῖ ἄρτον ἅμα. 2 καὶ ἀνέστη ᾿Ισμαὴλ καὶ οἱ δέκα ἄνδρες, οἳ ἦσαν μετ’ αὐτοῦ, καὶ ἐπάταξαν τὸν Γοδολίαν, ὃν κατέστησε βασιλεὺς Βαβυλῶνος ἐπὶ τῆς γῆς, 3 καὶ πάντας τοὺς ᾿Ιουδαίους τοὺς ὄντας μετ’ αὐτοῦ ἐν Μασσηφᾷ καὶ πάντας τοὺς Χαλδαίους τοὺς εὑρεθέντας ἐκεῖ. - 4 Καὶ ἐγένετο τῇ ἡμέρᾳ τῇ δευτέρᾳ πατάξαντος αὐτοῦ τὸν Γοδολίαν, καὶ ἄνθρωπος οὐκ ἔγνω, 5 καὶ ἤλθοσαν ἄνδρες ἀπὸ Συχὲμ καὶ ἀπὸ Σαλὴμ καὶ ἀπὸ Σαμαρείας, ὀγδοήκοντα ἄνδρες, ἐξυρημένοι πώγωνας καὶ διερρηγμένοι τὰ ἱμάτια καὶ κοπτόμενοι, καὶ μαναὰ καὶ λίβανος ἐν χερσὶν αὐτῶν τοῦ εἰσενεγκεῖν εἰς οἶκον Κυρίου. 6 καὶ ἐξῆλθεν εἰς ἀπάντησιν αὐτοῖς ᾿Ισμαήλ· αὐτοὶ ἐπορεύοντο καὶ ἔκλαιον, καὶ εἶπεν αὐτοῖς· εἰσέλθετε πρὸς Γοδολίαν. 7 καὶ ἐγένετο εἰσελθόντων αὐτῶν εἰς τὸ μέσον τῆς πόλεως, ἔσφαξεν αὐτοὺς εἰς τὸ φρέαρ. 8 καὶ δέκα ἄνδρες εὑρέθησαν ἐκεῖ καὶ εἶπαν τῷ ᾿Ισμαήλ· μὴ ἀνέλῃς ἡμᾶς, ὅτι εἰσὶν ἡμῖν θησαυροὶ ἐν ἀγρῷ, πυροὶ καὶ κριθαί, μέλι καὶ ἔλαιον· καὶ παρῆλθε καὶ οὐκ ἀνεῖλεν αὐτοὺς ἐν μέσῳ τῶν ἀδελφῶν αὐτῶν. 9 καὶ τὸ φρέαρ, εἰς ὃ ἔρριψεν ἐκεῖ ᾿Ισμαὴλ πάντας, οὓς ἐπάταξε, φρέαρ μέγα τοῦτό ἐστιν, ὃ ἐποίησεν ὁ βασιλεὺς ᾿Ασὰ ἀπὸ προσώπου Βαασὰ βασιλέως ᾿Ισραήλ· τοῦτο ἐνέπλησεν ᾿Ισμαὴλ τραυματιῶν. 10 καὶ ἀπέστρεψεν ᾿Ισμαὴλ πάντα τὸν λαὸν τὸν καταλειφθέντα εἰς Μασσηφὰ καὶ τὰς θυγατέρας τοῦ βασιλέως, ἃς παρακατέθετο ὁ ἀρχιμάγειρος τῷ Γοδολίᾳ υἱῷ ᾿Αχεικάμ, καὶ ᾤχετο εἰς τὸ πέραν υἱῶν ᾿Αμμών. - 11 Καὶ ἤκουσεν ᾿Ιωανὰν υἱὸς Καρηὲ καὶ πάντες οἱ ἡγεμόνες τῆς δυνάμεως οἱ μετ’ αὐτοῦ πάντα τὰ κακά, ἃ ἐποίησεν ᾿Ισμαήλ, 12 καὶ ἤγαγον ἅπαν τὸ στρατόπεδον αὐτῶν καὶ ᾤχοντο πολεμεῖν αὐτὸν καὶ εὗρον αὐτὸν ἐπὶ ὕδατος πολλοῦ ἐν Γαβαών. 13 καὶ ἐγένετο ὅτε εἶδε πᾶς ὁ λαὸς ὁ μετὰ ᾿Ισμαὴλ τὸν ᾿Ιωανὰν καὶ τοὺς ἡγεμόνας τῆς δυνάμεως τῆς μετ’ αὐτοῦ, 14 καὶ ἀνέστρεψαν πρὸς ᾿Ιωανάν. 15 καὶ ᾿Ισμαὴλ ἐσώθη σὺν ὀκτὼ ἀνθρώποις καὶ ᾤχετο πρὸς τοὺς υἱοὺς ᾿Αμμών. - 16 Καὶ ἔλαβεν ᾿Ιωανὰν καὶ πάντες οἱ ἡγεμόνες τῆς δυνάμεως οἱ μετ’ αὐτοῦ πάντας τοὺς καταλοίπους τοῦ λαοῦ, οὓς ἀπέστρεψεν ἀπὸ ᾿Ισμαήλ, δυνατοὺς ἄνδρας ἐν πολέμῳ καὶ τὰς γυναῖκας καὶ τὰ λοιπὰ καὶ τοὺς εὐνούχους, οὓς ἀπέστρεψαν ἀπὸ Γαβαών, 17 καὶ ᾤχοντο καὶ ἐκάθισαν ἐν Γαβηρώθ - Χαμαὰμ τῇ πρὸς Βηθλεὲμ τοῦ πορευθῆναι εἰς Αἴγυπτον 18 ἀπὸ προσώπου τῶν Χαλδαίων, ὅτι ἐφοβήθησαν ἀπὸ προσώπου αὐτῶν, ὅτι ἐπάταξεν ᾿Ισμαὴλ τὸν Γοδολίαν, ὃν κατέστησεν ὁ βασιλεὺς Βαβυλῶνος ἐν τῇ γῇ.
