1 Kings 11


1  But king4428 Solomon8010 loved157 many7227 strange5237 women,802 together with854 the daughter1323 of Pharaoh,6547 women of the Moabites,4125 Ammonites,5984 Edomites,130 Zidonians,6722 and Hittites;2850

2  Of4480 the nations1471 concerning which834 the LORD3068 said559 unto413 the children1121 of Israel,3478 Ye shall not3808 go in935 to them, neither3808 shall they1992 come in935 unto you: for surely403 they will turn away5186 853 your heart3824 after310 their gods:430 Solomon8010 cleaved1692 unto these in love.157

3  And he had1961 seven7651 hundred3967 wives,802 princesses,8282 and three7969 hundred3967 concubines:6370 and his wives802 turned away5186 853 his heart.3820

4  For it came to pass,1961 when6256 Solomon8010 was old,2209 that his wives802 turned away5186 853 his heart3824 after310 other312 gods:430 and his heart3824 was1961 not3808 perfect8003 with5973 the LORD3068 his God,430 as was the heart3824 of David1732 his father.1

5  For Solomon8010 went1980 after310 Ashtoreth6253 the goddess430 of the Zidonians,6722 and after310 Milcom4445 the abomination8251 of the Ammonites.5984

6  And Solomon8010 did6213 evil7451 in the sight5869 of the LORD,3068 and went not fully3808 4390 after310 the LORD,3068 as did David1732 his father.1

7  Then227 did Solomon8010 build1129 a high place1116 for Chemosh,3645 the abomination8251 of Moab,4124 in the hill2022 that834 is before5921 6440 Jerusalem,3389 and for Molech,4432 the abomination8251 of the children1121 of Ammon.5983

8  And likewise3651 did6213 he for all3605 his strange5237 wives,802 which burnt incense6999 and sacrificed2076 unto their gods.430

9  And the LORD3068 was angry599 with Solomon,8010 because3588 his heart3824 was turned5186 from4480 5973 the LORD3068 God430 of Israel,3478 which had appeared7200 unto413 him twice,6471

10  And had commanded6680 413 him concerning5921 this2088 thing,1697 that he should not1115 go1980 after310 other312 gods:430 but he kept8104 not3808 853 that which834 the LORD3068 commanded.6680

11  Wherefore the LORD3068 said559 unto Solomon,8010 Forasmuch3282 as834 this2063 is1961 done of5973 thee, and thou hast not3808 kept8104 my covenant1285 and my statutes,2708 which834 I have commanded6680 5921 thee, I will surely rend7167 7167 853 the kingdom4467 from4480 5921 thee, and will give5414 it to thy servant.5650

12  Notwithstanding389 in thy days3117 I will not3808 do6213 it for David thy father's sake:4616 1732 1 but I will rend7167 it out of the hand4480 3027 of thy son.1121

13  Howbeit7535 I will not3808 rend away7167 853 all3605 the kingdom;4467 but will give5414 one259 tribe7626 to thy son1121 for David my servant's sake,4616 1732 5650 and for Jerusalem's sake4616 3389 which834 I have chosen.977

14  And the LORD3068 stirred up6965 an adversary7854 unto Solomon,8010 853 Hadad1908 the Edomite:130 he1931 was of the king's seed4480 2233 4428 in Edom.123

15  For it came to pass,1961 when David1732 was1961 in 853 Edom,123 and Joab3097 the captain8269 of the host6635 was gone up5927 to bury6912 853 the slain,2491 after he had smitten5221 every3605 male2145 in Edom;123

16  (For3588 six8337 months2320 did Joab3097 remain3427 there8033 with all3605 Israel,3478 until5704 he had cut off3772 every3605 male2145 in Edom:)123

17  That Hadad111 fled,1272 he1931 and certain376 Edomites129 of his father's servants4480 5650 1 with854 him, to go935 into Egypt;4714 Hadad1908 being yet a little6996 child.5288

18  And they arose6965 out of Midian,4480 4080 and came935 to Paran:6290 and they took3947 men376 with5973 them out of Paran,4480 6290 and they came935 to Egypt,4714 unto413 Pharaoh6547 king4428 of Egypt;4714 which gave5414 him a house,1004 and appointed559 him victuals,3899 and gave5414 him land.776

19  And Hadad1908 found4672 great3966 favor2580 in the sight5869 of Pharaoh,6547 so that he gave5414 him to wife802 853 the sister269 of his own wife,802 the sister269 of Tahpenes8472 the queen.1377

20  And the sister269 of Tahpenes8472 bore3205 him 853 Genubath1592 his son,1121 whom Tahpenes8472 weaned1580 in8432 Pharaoh's6547 house:1004 and Genubath1592 was1961 in Pharaoh's6547 household1004 among8432 the sons1121 of Pharaoh.6547

21  And when Hadad1908 heard8085 in Egypt4714 that3588 David1732 slept7901 with5973 his fathers,1 and that3588 Joab3097 the captain8269 of the host6635 was dead,4191 Hadad1908 said559 to413 Pharaoh,6547 Let me depart,7971 that I may go1980 to413 mine own country.776

22  Then Pharaoh6547 said559 unto him, But3588 what4100 hast thou859 lacked2638 with5973 me, that, behold,2009 thou seekest1245 to go1980 to413 thine own country?776 And he answered,559 Nothing:3808 howbeit3588 let me go in any wise.7971 7971

23  And God430 stirred him up6965 another adversary,7854 853 Rezon7331 the son1121 of Eliadah,450 which834 fled1272 from4480 854 his lord113 Hadadezer1909 king4428 of Zobah:6678

24  And he gathered6908 men376 unto5921 him, and became1961 captain8269 over a band,1416 when David1732 slew2026 them of Zobah: and they went1980 to Damascus,1834 and dwelt3427 therein, and reigned4427 in Damascus.1834

25  And he was1961 an adversary7854 to Israel3478 all3605 the days3117 of Solomon,8010 beside854 the mischief7451 that834 Hadad1908 did: and he abhorred6973 Israel,3478 and reigned4427 over5921 Syria.758

26  And Jeroboam3379 the son1121 of Nebat,5028 an Ephrathite673 of4480 Zereda,6868 Solomon's8010 servant,5650 whose mother's517 name8034 was Zeruah,6871 a widow490 woman,802 even he lifted up7311 his hand3027 against the king.4428

27  And this2088 was the cause1697 that834 he lifted up7311 his hand3027 against the king:4428 Solomon8010 built1129 853 Millo,4407 and repaired5462 853 the breaches6556 of the city5892 of David1732 his father.1

28  And the man376 Jeroboam3379 was a mighty1368 man of valor:2428 and Solomon8010 seeing7200 853 the young man5288 that3588 he1931 was industrious,6213 4399 he made him ruler6485 853 over all3605 the charge5447 of the house1004 of Joseph.3130

29  And it came to pass1961 at that1931 time6256 when Jeroboam3379 went out3318 of Jerusalem,4480 3389 that the prophet5030 Ahijah281 the Shilonite7888 found4672 him in the way;1870 and he1931 had clad himself3680 with a new2319 garment;8008 and they two8147 were alone905 in the field:7704

30  And Ahijah281 caught8610 the new2319 garment8008 that834 was on5921 him, and rent7167 it in twelve8147 6240 pieces:7168

31  And he said559 to Jeroboam,3379 Take3947 thee ten6235 pieces:7168 for3588 thus3541 saith559 the LORD,3068 the God430 of Israel,3478 Behold,2009 I will rend7167 853 the kingdom4467 out of the hand4480 3027 of Solomon,8010 and will give5414 853 ten6235 tribes7626 to thee:

32  (But he shall have1961 one259 tribe7626 for my servant David's sake,4616 1732 5650 and for Jerusalem's sake,4616 3389 the city5892 which834 I have chosen977 out of all4480 3605 the tribes7626 of Israel:)3478

33  Because3282 that834 they have forsaken5800 me, and have worshiped7812 Ashtoreth6253 the goddess430 of the Zidonians,6721 Chemosh3645 the god430 of the Moabites,4124 and Milcom4445 the god430 of the children1121 of Ammon,5983 and have not3808 walked1980 in my ways,1870 to do6213 that which is right3477 in mine eyes,5869 and to keep my statutes2708 and my judgments,4941 as did David1732 his father.1

34  Howbeit I will not3808 take3947 853 the whole3605 kingdom4467 out of his hand:4480 3027 but3588 I will make7896 him prince5387 all3605 the days3117 of his life2416 for David my servant's sake,4616 1732 5650 whom834 853 I chose,977 because834 he kept8104 my commandments4687 and my statutes:2708

35  But I will take3947 the kingdom4410 out of his son's hand,4480 3027 1121 and will give5414 it unto thee, even 853 ten6235 tribes.7626

36  And unto his son1121 will I give5414 one259 tribe,7626 that4616 David1732 my servant5650 may have1961 a light5216 always3605 3117 before6440 me in Jerusalem,3389 the city5892 which834 I have chosen977 me to put7760 my name8034 there.8033

37  And I will take3947 thee, and thou shalt reign4427 according to all3605 that834 thy soul5315 desireth,183 and shalt be1961 king4428 over5921 Israel.3478

38  And it shall be,1961 if518 thou wilt hearken unto8085 853 all3605 that834 I command6680 thee, and wilt walk1980 in my ways,1870 and do6213 that is right3477 in my sight,5869 to keep8104 my statutes2708 and my commandments,4687 as834 David1732 my servant5650 did;6213 that I will be1961 with5973 thee, and build1129 thee a sure539 house,1004 as834 I built1129 for David,1732 and will give5414 853 Israel3478 unto thee.

39  And I will for4616 this2063 afflict6031 853 the seed2233 of David,1732 but389 not3808 forever.3605 3117

40  Solomon8010 sought1245 therefore to kill4191 853 Jeroboam.3379 And Jeroboam3379 arose,6965 and fled1272 into Egypt,4714 unto413 Shishak7895 king4428 of Egypt,4714 and was1961 in Egypt4714 until5704 the death4194 of Solomon.8010

41  And the rest3499 of the acts1697 of Solomon,8010 and all3605 that834 he did,6213 and his wisdom,2451 are they1992 not3808 written3789 in5921 the book5612 of the acts1697 of Solomon?8010

42  And the time3117 that834 Solomon8010 reigned4427 in Jerusalem3389 over5921 all3605 Israel3478 was forty705 years.8141

43  And Solomon8010 slept7901 with5973 his fathers,1 and was buried6912 in the city5892 of David1732 his father:1 and Rehoboam7346 his son1121 reigned4427 in his stead.8478


1 καὶ ὁ βασιλεὺς Σαλωμων ἦν φιλογύναιος καὶ ἦσαν αὐτῷ ἄρχουσαι ἑπτακόσιαι καὶ παλλακαὶ τριακόσιαι καὶ ἔλαβεν γυναῖκας ἀλλοτρίας καὶ τὴν θυγατέρα Φαραω Μωαβίτιδας Αμμανίτιδας Σύρας καὶ Ιδουμαίας Χετταίας καὶ Αμορραίας

2 ἐκ τῶν ἐθνῶν ὧν ἀπεῖπεν κύριος τοῖς υἱοῖς Ισραηλ οὐκ εἰσελεύσεσθε εἰς αὐτούς καὶ αὐτοὶ οὐκ εἰσελεύσονται εἰς ὑμᾶς μὴ ἐκκλίνωσιν τὰς καρδίας ὑμῶν ὀπίσω εἰδώλων αὐτῶν εἰς αὐτοὺς ἐκολλήθη Σαλωμων τοῦ ἀγαπῆσαι

4 καὶ ἐγενήθη ἐν καιρῷ γήρους Σαλωμων καὶ οὐκ ἦν ἡ καρδία αὐτοῦ τελεία μετὰ κυρίου θεοῦ αὐτοῦ καθὼς ἡ καρδία Δαυιδ τοῦ πατρὸς αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐξέκλιναν αἱ γυναῖκες αἱ ἀλλότριαι τὴν καρδίαν αὐτοῦ ὀπίσω θεῶν αὐτῶν

5 τότε ᾠκοδόμησεν Σαλωμων ὑψηλὸν τῷ Χαμως εἰδώλῳ Μωαβ καὶ τῷ βασιλεῖ αὐτῶν εἰδώλῳ υἱῶν Αμμων

6 καὶ τῇ Ἀστάρτῃ βδελύγματι Σιδωνίων

7 καὶ οὕτως ἐποίησεν πάσαις ταῖς γυναιξὶν αὐτοῦ ταῖς ἀλλοτρίαις ἐθυμίων καὶ ἔθυον τοῖς εἰδώλοις αὐτῶν

8 καὶ ἐποίησεν Σαλωμων τὸ πονηρὸν ἐνώπιον κυρίου οὐκ ἐπορεύθη ὀπίσω κυρίου ὡς Δαυιδ ὁ πατὴρ αὐτοῦ

9 καὶ ὠργίσθη κύριος ἐπὶ Σαλωμων ὅτι ἐξέκλινεν καρδίαν αὐτοῦ ἀπὸ κυρίου θεοῦ Ισραηλ τοῦ ὀφθέντος αὐτῷ δὶς

10 καὶ ἐντειλαμένου αὐτῷ ὑπὲρ τοῦ λόγου τούτου τὸ παράπαν μὴ πορευθῆναι ὀπίσω θεῶν ἑτέρων καὶ φυλάξασθαι ποιῆσαι ἃ ἐνετείλατο αὐτῷ κύριος ὁ θεός

11 καὶ εἶπεν κύριος πρὸς Σαλωμων ἀνθ᾽ ὧν ἐγένετο ταῦτα μετὰ σοῦ καὶ οὐκ ἐφύλαξας τὰς ἐντολάς μου καὶ τὰ προστάγματά μου ἃ ἐνετειλάμην σοι διαρρήσσων διαρρήξω τὴν βασιλείαν σου ἐκ χειρός σου καὶ δώσω αὐτὴν τῷ δούλῳ σου

12 πλὴν ἐν ταῖς ἡμέραις σου οὐ ποιήσω αὐτὰ διὰ Δαυιδ τὸν πατέρα σου ἐκ χειρὸς υἱοῦ σου λήμψομαι αὐτήν

13 πλὴν ὅλην τὴν βασιλείαν οὐ μὴ λάβω σκῆπτρον ἓν δώσω τῷ υἱῷ σου διὰ Δαυιδ τὸν δοῦλόν μου καὶ διὰ Ιερουσαλημ τὴν πόλιν ἣν ἐξελεξάμην

14 καὶ ἤγειρεν κύριος σαταν τῷ Σαλωμων τὸν Αδερ τὸν Ιδουμαῖον καὶ τὸν Εσρωμ υἱὸν Ελιαδαε τὸν ἐν Ραεμμαθ Αδραζαρ βασιλέα Σουβα κύριον αὐτοῦ καὶ συνηθροίσθησαν ἐπ᾽ αὐτὸν ἄνδρες καὶ ἦν ἄρχων συστρέμματος καὶ προκατελάβετο τὴν Δαμασεκ καὶ ἦσαν σαταν τῷ Ισραηλ πάσας τὰς ἡμέρας Σαλωμων καὶ Αδερ ὁ Ιδουμαῖος ἐκ τοῦ σπέρματος τῆς βασιλείας ἐν Ιδουμαίᾳ

15 καὶ ἐγένετο ἐν τῷ ἐξολεθρεῦσαι Δαυιδ τὸν Εδωμ ἐν τῷ πορευθῆναι Ιωαβ ἄρχοντα τῆς στρατιᾶς θάπτειν τοὺς τραυματίας ἔκοψαν πᾶν ἀρσενικὸν ἐν τῇ Ιδουμαίᾳ

16 ὅτι ἓξ μῆνας ἐνεκάθητο ἐκεῖ Ιωαβ καὶ πᾶς Ισραηλ ἐν τῇ Ιδουμαίᾳ ἕως ὅτου ἐξωλέθρευσεν πᾶν ἀρσενικὸν ἐκ τῆς Ιδουμαίας

17 καὶ ἀπέδρα Αδερ αὐτὸς καὶ πάντες ἄνδρες Ιδουμαῖοι τῶν παίδων τοῦ πατρὸς αὐτοῦ μετ᾽ αὐτοῦ καὶ εἰσῆλθον εἰς Αἴγυπτον καὶ Αδερ παιδάριον μικρόν

18 καὶ ἀνίστανται ἄνδρες ἐκ τῆς πόλεως Μαδιαμ καὶ ἔρχονται εἰς Φαραν καὶ λαμβάνουσιν ἄνδρας μετ᾽ αὐτῶν καὶ ἔρχονται πρὸς Φαραω βασιλέα Αἰγύπτου καὶ εἰσῆλθεν Αδερ πρὸς Φαραω καὶ ἔδωκεν αὐτῷ οἶκον καὶ ἄρτους διέταξεν αὐτῷ

19 καὶ εὗρεν Αδερ χάριν ἐναντίον Φαραω σφόδρα καὶ ἔδωκεν αὐτῷ γυναῖκα ἀδελφὴν τῆς γυναικὸς αὐτοῦ ἀδελφὴν Θεκεμινας τὴν μείζω

20 καὶ ἔτεκεν αὐτῷ ἡ ἀδελφὴ Θεκεμινας τῷ Αδερ τὸν Γανηβαθ υἱὸν αὐτῆς καὶ ἐξέθρεψεν αὐτὸν Θεκεμινα ἐν μέσῳ υἱῶν Φαραω καὶ ἦν Γανηβαθ ἐν μέσῳ υἱῶν Φαραω

21 καὶ Αδερ ἤκουσεν ἐν Αἰγύπτῳ ὅτι κεκοίμηται Δαυιδ μετὰ τῶν πατέρων αὐτοῦ καὶ ὅτι τέθνηκεν Ιωαβ ὁ ἄρχων τῆς στρατιᾶς καὶ εἶπεν Αδερ πρὸς Φαραω ἐξαπόστειλόν με καὶ ἀποστρέψω εἰς τὴν γῆν μου

22 καὶ εἶπεν Φαραω τῷ Αδερ τίνι σὺ ἐλαττονῇ μετ᾽ ἐμοῦ καὶ ἰδοὺ σὺ ζητεῖς ἀπελθεῖν εἰς τὴν γῆν σου καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῷ Αδερ ὅτι ἐξαποστέλλων ἐξαποστελεῖς με καὶ ἀνέστρεψεν Αδερ εἰς τὴν γῆν αὐτοῦ

25 αὕτη ἡ κακία ἣν ἐποίησεν Αδερ καὶ ἐβαρυθύμησεν ἐν Ισραηλ καὶ ἐβασίλευσεν ἐν γῇ Εδωμ

26 καὶ Ιεροβοαμ υἱὸς Ναβατ ὁ Εφραθι ἐκ τῆς Σαριρα υἱὸς γυναικὸς χήρας δοῦλος Σαλωμων

27 καὶ τοῦτο τὸ πρᾶγμα ὡς ἐπήρατο χεῖρας ἐπὶ βασιλέα Σαλωμων ᾠκοδόμησεν τὴν ἄκραν συνέκλεισεν τὸν φραγμὸν τῆς πόλεως Δαυιδ τοῦ πατρὸς αὐτοῦ

28 καὶ ὁ ἄνθρωπος Ιεροβοαμ ἰσχυρὸς δυνάμει καὶ εἶδεν Σαλωμων τὸ παιδάριον ὅτι ἀνὴρ ἔργων ἐστίν καὶ κατέστησεν αὐτὸν ἐπὶ τὰς ἄρσεις οἴκου Ιωσηφ

29 καὶ ἐγενήθη ἐν τῷ καιρῷ ἐκείνῳ καὶ Ιεροβοαμ ἐξῆλθεν ἐξ Ιερουσαλημ καὶ εὗρεν αὐτὸν Αχιας ὁ Σηλωνίτης ὁ προφήτης ἐν τῇ ὁδῷ καὶ ἀπέστησεν αὐτὸν ἐκ τῆς ὁδοῦ καὶ ὁ Αχιας περιβεβλημένος ἱματίῳ καινῷ καὶ ἀμφότεροι ἐν τῷ πεδίῳ

30 καὶ ἐπελάβετο Αχια τοῦ ἱματίου αὐτοῦ τοῦ καινοῦ τοῦ ἐπ᾽ αὐτῷ καὶ διέρρηξεν αὐτὸ δώδεκα ῥήγματα

31 καὶ εἶπεν τῷ Ιεροβοαμ λαβὲ σεαυτῷ δέκα ῥήγματα ὅτι τάδε λέγει κύριος ὁ θεὸς Ισραηλ ἰδοὺ ἐγὼ ῥήσσω τὴν βασιλείαν ἐκ χειρὸς Σαλωμων καὶ δώσω σοι δέκα σκῆπτρα

32 καὶ δύο σκῆπτρα ἔσονται αὐτῷ διὰ τὸν δοῦλόν μου Δαυιδ καὶ διὰ Ιερουσαλημ τὴν πόλιν ἣν ἐξελεξάμην ἐν αὐτῇ ἐκ πασῶν φυλῶν Ισραηλ

33 ἀνθ᾽ ὧν κατέλιπέν με καὶ ἐποίησεν τῇ Ἀστάρτῃ βδελύγματι Σιδωνίων καὶ τῷ Χαμως καὶ τοῖς εἰδώλοις Μωαβ καὶ τῷ βασιλεῖ αὐτῶν προσοχθίσματι υἱῶν Αμμων καὶ οὐκ ἐπορεύθη ἐν ταῖς ὁδοῖς μου τοῦ ποιῆσαι τὸ εὐθὲς ἐνώπιον ἐμοῦ ὡς Δαυιδ ὁ πατὴρ αὐτοῦ

34 καὶ οὐ μὴ λάβω ὅλην τὴν βασιλείαν ἐκ χειρὸς αὐτοῦ διότι ἀντιτασσόμενος ἀντιτάξομαι αὐτῷ πάσας τὰς ἡμέρας τῆς ζωῆς αὐτοῦ διὰ Δαυιδ τὸν δοῦλόν μου ὃν ἐξελεξάμην αὐτόν

35 καὶ λήμψομαι τὴν βασιλείαν ἐκ χειρὸς τοῦ υἱοῦ αὐτοῦ καὶ δώσω σοι τὰ δέκα σκῆπτρα

36 τῷ δὲ υἱῷ αὐτοῦ δώσω τὰ δύο σκῆπτρα ὅπως ᾖ θέσις τῷ δούλῳ μου Δαυιδ πάσας τὰς ἡμέρας ἐνώπιον ἐμοῦ ἐν Ιερουσαλημ τῇ πόλει ἣν ἐξελεξάμην ἐμαυτῷ τοῦ θέσθαι ὄνομά μου ἐκεῖ

37 καὶ σὲ λήμψομαι καὶ βασιλεύσεις ἐν οἷς ἐπιθυμεῖ ἡ ψυχή σου καὶ σὺ ἔσῃ βασιλεὺς ἐπὶ τὸν Ισραηλ

38 καὶ ἔσται ἐὰν φυλάξῃς πάντα ὅσα ἂν ἐντείλωμαί σοι καὶ πορευθῇς ἐν ταῖς ὁδοῖς μου καὶ ποιήσῃς τὸ εὐθὲς ἐνώπιον ἐμοῦ τοῦ φυλάξασθαι τὰς ἐντολάς μου καὶ τὰ προστάγματά μου καθὼς ἐποίησεν Δαυιδ ὁ δοῦλός μου καὶ ἔσομαι μετὰ σοῦ καὶ οἰκοδομήσω σοι οἶκον πιστόν καθὼς ᾠκοδόμησα τῷ Δαυιδ

40 καὶ ἐζήτησεν Σαλωμων θανατῶσαι τὸν Ιεροβοαμ καὶ ἀνέστη καὶ ἀπέδρα εἰς Αἴγυπτον πρὸς Σουσακιμ βασιλέα Αἰγύπτου καὶ ἦν ἐν Αἰγύπτῳ ἕως οὗ ἀπέθανεν Σαλωμων

41 καὶ τὰ λοιπὰ τῶν ῥημάτων Σαλωμων καὶ πάντα ὅσα ἐποίησεν καὶ πᾶσαν τὴν φρόνησιν αὐτοῦ οὐκ ἰδοὺ ταῦτα γέγραπται ἐν βιβλίῳ ῥημάτων Σαλωμων

42 καὶ αἱ ἡμέραι ἃς ἐβασίλευσεν Σαλωμων ἐν Ιερουσαλημ τεσσαράκοντα ἔτη

43 καὶ ἐκοιμήθη Σαλωμων μετὰ τῶν πατέρων αὐτοῦ καὶ ἔθαψαν αὐτὸν ἐν πόλει Δαυιδ τοῦ πατρὸς αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐγενήθη ὡς ἤκουσεν Ιεροβοαμ υἱὸς Ναβατ καὶ αὐτοῦ ἔτι ὄντος ἐν Αἰγύπτῳ ὡς ἔφυγεν ἐκ προσώπου Σαλωμων καὶ ἐκάθητο ἐν Αἰγύπτῳ κατευθύνει καὶ ἔρχεται εἰς τὴν πόλιν αὐτοῦ εἰς τὴν γῆν Σαριρα τὴν ἐν ὄρει Εφραιμ καὶ ὁ βασιλεὺς Σαλωμων ἐκοιμήθη μετὰ τῶν πατέρων αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐβασίλευσεν Ροβοαμ υἱὸς αὐτοῦ ἀντ᾽ αὐτοῦ

1 Rex autem Salomon adamavit mulieres alienigenas multas, filiam quoque Pharaonis, et Moabitidas, et Ammonitidas, Idumæas, et Sidonias, et Hethæas:

2 de gentibus super quibus dixit Dominus filiis Israël: Non ingrediemini ad eas, neque de illis ingredientur ad vestras: certissime enim avertent corda vestra ut sequamini deos earum. His itaque copulatus est Salomon ardentissimo amore.

3 Fueruntque ei uxores quasi reginæ septingentæ, et concubinæ trecentæ: et averterunt mulieres cor ejus.

4 Cumque jam esset senex, depravatum est cor ejus per mulieres, ut sequeretur deos alienos: nec erat cor ejus perfectum cum Domino Deo suo, sicut cor David patris ejus.

5 Sed colebat Salomon Astarthen deam Sidoniorum, et Moloch idolum Ammonitarum.

6 Fecitque Salomon quod non placuerat coram Domino, et non adimplevit ut sequeretur Dominum sicut David pater ejus.

7 Tunc ædificavit Salomon fanum Chamos idolo Moab in monte qui est contra Jerusalem, et Moloch idolo filiorum Ammon.

8 Atque in hunc modum fecit universis uxoribus suis alienigenis, quæ adolebant thura, et immolabant diis suis.

9 Igitur iratus est Dominus Salomoni, quod aversa esset mens ejus a Domino Deo Israël, qui apparuerat ei secundo,

10 et præceperat de verbo hoc ne sequeretur deos alienos: et non custodivit quæ mandavit ei Dominus.

11 Dixit itaque Dominus Salomoni: Quia habuisti hoc apud te, et non custodisti pactum meum, et præcepta mea quæ mandavi tibi, disrumpens scindam regnum tuum, et dabo illud servo tuo.

12 Verumtamen in diebus tuis non faciam propter David patrem tuum: de manu filii tui scindam illud,

13 nec totum regnum auferam, sed tribum unam dabo filio tuo propter David servum meum, et Jerusalem, quam elegi.

14 Suscitavit autem Dominus adversarium Salomoni Adad Idumæum de semine regio, qui erat in Edom.

15 Cum enim esset David in Idumæa, et ascendisset Joab princeps militiæ ad sepeliendum eos qui fuerant interfecti, et occidisset omnem masculinum in Idumæa

16 (sex enim mensibus ibi moratus est Joab, et omnis Israël, donec interimeret omne masculinum in Idumæa),

17 fugit Adad ipse, et viri Idumæi de servis patris ejus cum eo, ut ingrederetur Ægyptum: erat autem Adad puer parvulus.

18 Cumque surrexissent de Madian, venerunt in Pharan, tuleruntque secum viros de Pharan, et introierunt Ægyptum ad Pharaonem regem Ægypti: qui dedit ei domum, et cibos constituit, et terram delegavit.

19 Et invenit Adad gratiam coram Pharaone valde, in tantum ut daret ei uxorem sororem uxoris suæ germanam Taphnes reginæ.

20 Genuitque ei soror Taphnes Genubath filium, et nutrivit eum Taphnes in domo Pharaonis: eratque Genubath habitans apud Pharaonem cum filiis ejus.

21 Cumque audisset Adad in Ægypto dormisse David cum patribus suis, et mortuum esse Joab principem militiæ, dixit Pharaoni: Dimitte me, ut vadam in terram meam.

22 Dixitque ei Pharao: Qua enim re apud me indiges, ut quæras ire ad terram tuam? At ille respondit: Nulla: sed obsecro te ut dimittas me.

23 Suscitavit quoque ei Deus adversarium Razon filium Eliada, qui fugerat Adarezer regem Soba dominum suum:

24 et congregavit contra eum viros, et factus est princeps latronum cum interficeret eos David: abieruntque Damascum, et habitaverunt ibi, et constituerunt eum regem in Damasco:

25 eratque adversarius Israëli cunctis diebus Salomonis: et hoc est malum Adad, et odium contra Israël: regnavitque in Syria.

26 Jeroboam quoque filius Nabat, Ephrathæus, de Sareda, servus Salomonis, cujus mater erat nomine Sarva, mulier vidua, levavit manum contra regem.

27 Et hæc est causa rebellionis adversus eum, quia Salomon ædificavit Mello, et coæquavit voraginem civitatis David patris sui.

28 Erat autem Jeroboam vir fortis et potens: vidensque Salomon adolescentem bonæ indolis et industrium, constituerat eum præfectum super tributa universæ domus Joseph.

29 Factum est igitur in tempore illo, ut Jeroboam egrederetur de Jerusalem, et inveniret eum Ahias Silonites propheta in via, opertus pallio novo: erant autem duo tantum in agro.

30 Apprehendensque Ahias pallium suum novum quo coopertus erat, scidit in duodecim partes.

31 Et ait ad Jeroboam: Tolle tibi decem scissuras: hæc enim dicit Dominus Deus Israël: Ecce ego scindam regnum de manu Salomonis, et dabo tibi decem tribus.

32 Porro una tribus remanebit ei propter servum meum David, et Jerusalem civitatem, quam elegi ex omnibus tribubus Israël:

33 eo quod dereliquerit me, et adoraverit Astarthen deam Sidoniorum, et Chamos deum Moab, et Moloch deum filiorum Ammon: et non ambulaverit in viis meis, ut faceret justitiam coram me, et præcepta mea et judicia, sicut David pater ejus.

34 Nec auferam omne regnum de manu ejus, sed ducem ponam eum cunctis diebus vitæ suæ, propter David servum meum quem elegi, qui custodivit mandata mea et præcepta mea.

35 Auferam autem regnum de manu filii ejus, et dabo tibi decem tribus:

36 filio autem ejus dabo tribum unam, ut remaneat lucerna David servo meo cunctis diebus coram me in Jerusalem civitate, quam elegi ut esset nomen meum ibi.

37 Te autem assumam, et regnabis super omnia quæ desiderat anima tua, erisque rex super Israël.

38 Si igitur audieris omnia quæ præcepero tibi, et ambulaveris in viis meis, et feceris quod rectum est coram me, custodiens mandata mea et præcepta mea, sicut fecit David servus meus: ero tecum, et ædificabo tibi domum fidelem, quomodo ædificavi David domum: et tradam tibi Israël:

39 et affligam semen David super hoc, verumtamen non cunctis diebus.

40 Voluit ergo Salomon interficere Jeroboam: qui surrexit, et aufugit in Ægyptum ad Sesac regem Ægypti, et fuit in Ægypto usque ad mortem Salomonis.

41 Reliquum autem verborum Salomonis, et omnia quæ fecit, et sapientia ejus, ecce universa scripta sunt in libro verborum dierum Salomonis.

42 Dies autem quos regnavit Salomon in Jerusalem super omnem Israël, quadraginta anni sunt.

43 Dormivitque Salomon cum patribus suis, et sepultus est in civitate David patris sui: regnavitque Roboam filius ejus pro eo.
