1 Kings 13


1  And, behold,2009 there came935 a man376 of God430 out of Judah4480 3063 by the word1697 of the LORD3068 unto413 Bethel:1008 and Jeroboam3379 stood5975 by5921 the altar4196 to burn incense.6999

2  And he cried7121 against5921 the altar4196 in the word1697 of the LORD,3068 and said,559 O altar,4196 altar,4196 thus3541 saith559 the LORD;3068 Behold,2009 a child1121 shall be born3205 unto the house1004 of David,1732 Josiah2977 by name;8034 and upon5921 thee shall he offer2076 853 the priests3548 of the high places1116 that burn incense6999 upon5921 thee, and men's120 bones6106 shall be burnt8313 upon5921 thee.

3  And he gave5414 a sign4159 the same1931 day,3117 saying,559 This2088 is the sign4159 which834 the LORD3068 hath spoken;1696 Behold,2009 the altar4196 shall be rent,7167 and the ashes1880 that834 are upon5921 it shall be poured out.8210

4  And it came to pass,1961 when king4428 Jeroboam3379 heard8085 853 the saying1697 of the man376 of God,430 which834 had cried7121 against5921 the altar4196 in Bethel,1008 that he put forth7971 853 his hand3027 from4480 5921 the altar,4196 saying,559 Lay hold8610 on him. And his hand,3027 which834 he put forth7971 against5921 him, dried up,3001 so that he could3201 not3808 pull it in again7725 to413 him.

5  The altar4196 also was rent,7167 and the ashes1880 poured out8210 from4480 the altar,4196 according to the sign4159 which834 the man376 of God430 had given5414 by the word1697 of the LORD.3068

6  And the king4428 answered6030 and said559 unto413 the man376 of God,430 Entreat2470 now4994 853 the face6440 of the LORD3068 thy God,430 and pray6419 for1157 me, that my hand3027 may be restored me again.7725 413 And the man376 of God430 besought2470 853 the LORD,6440 3068 and the king's4428 hand3027 was restored him again,7725 413 and became1961 as it was before.7223

7  And the king4428 said1696 unto413 the man376 of God,430 Come935 home1004 with854 me, and refresh5582 thyself, and I will give5414 thee a reward.4991

8  And the man376 of God430 said559 unto413 the king,4428 If518 thou wilt give5414 me 853 half2677 thine house,1004 I will not3808 go in935 with5973 thee, neither3808 will I eat398 bread3899 nor3808 drink8354 water4325 in this2088 place:4725

9  For3588 so3651 was it charged6680 me by the word1697 of the LORD,3068 saying,559 Eat398 no3808 bread,3899 nor3808 drink8354 water,4325 nor3808 turn again7725 by the same way1870 that834 thou camest.1980

10  So he went1980 another312 way,1870 and returned7725 not3808 by the way1870 that834 he came935 to413 Bethel.1008

11  Now there dwelt3427 an old259 2205 prophet5030 in Bethel;1008 and his sons1121 came935 and told5608 him 853 all3605 the works4639 that834 the man376 of God430 had done6213 that day3117 in Bethel:1008 853 the words1697 which834 he had spoken1696 unto413 the king,4428 them they told5608 also to their father.1

12  And their father1 said1696 unto413 them, What335 2088 way1870 went1980 he? For his sons1121 had seen7200 853 what834 way1870 the man376 of God430 went,1980 which834 came935 from Judah.4480 3063

13  And he said559 unto413 his sons,1121 Saddle2280 me the ass.2543 So they saddled2280 him the ass:2543 and he rode7392 thereon,5921

14  And went1980 after310 the man376 of God,430 and found4672 him sitting3427 under8478 an oak:424 and he said559 unto413 him, Art thou859 the man376 of God430 that834 camest935 from4480 Judah?3063 And he said,559 I589 am.

15  Then he said559 unto413 him, Come1980 home1004 with854 me, and eat398 bread.3899

16  And he said,559 I may3201 not3808 return7725 with854 thee, nor go in935 with854 thee: neither3808 will I eat398 bread3899 nor3808 drink8354 water4325 with854 thee in this2088 place:4725

17  For3588 it was said1697 to413 me by the word1697 of the LORD,3068 Thou shalt eat398 no3808 bread3899 nor3808 drink8354 water4325 there,8033 nor3808 turn again7725 to go1980 by the way1870 that834 thou camest.1980

18  He said559 unto him, I589 am a prophet5030 also1571 as thou art; and an angel4397 spoke1696 unto413 me by the word1697 of the LORD,3068 saying,559 Bring him back7725 with854 thee into413 thine house,1004 that he may eat398 bread3899 and drink8354 water.4325 But he lied3584 unto him.

19  So he went back7725 with854 him, and did eat398 bread3899 in his house,1004 and drank8354 water.4325

20  And it came to pass,1961 as they1992 sat3427 at413 the table,7979 that the word1697 of the LORD3068 came1961 unto413 the prophet5030 that834 brought him back:7725

21  And he cried7121 unto413 the man376 of God430 that834 came935 from4480 Judah,3063 saying,559 Thus3541 saith559 the LORD,3068 Forasmuch3282 3588 as thou hast disobeyed4784 the mouth6310 of the LORD,3068 and hast not3808 kept8104 853 the commandment4687 which834 the LORD3068 thy God430 commanded6680 thee,

22  But camest back,7725 and hast eaten398 bread3899 and drunk8354 water4325 in the place,4725 of the which834 the LORD did say1696 to413 thee, Eat398 no408 bread,3899 and drink8354 no408 water;4325 thy carcass5038 shall not3808 come935 unto413 the sepulcher6913 of thy fathers.1

23  And it came to pass,1961 after310 he had eaten398 bread,3899 and after310 he had drunk,8354 that he saddled2280 for him the ass,2543 to wit, for the prophet5030 whom834 he had brought back.7725

24  And when he was gone,1980 a lion738 met4672 him by the way,1870 and slew4191 him: and his carcass5038 was1961 cast7993 in the way,1870 and the ass2543 stood5975 by681 it, the lion738 also stood5975 by681 the carcass.5038

25  And, behold,2009 men376 passed by,5674 and saw7200 853 the carcass5038 cast7993 in the way,1870 and the lion738 standing5975 by681 the carcass:5038 and they came935 and told1696 it in the city5892 where834 the old2205 prophet5030 dwelt.3427

26  And when the prophet5030 that834 brought him back7725 from4480 the way1870 heard8085 thereof, he said,559 It1931 is the man376 of God,430 who834 was disobedient4784 unto 853 the word6310 of the LORD:3068 therefore the LORD3068 hath delivered5414 him unto the lion,738 which hath torn7665 him, and slain4191 him, according to the word1697 of the LORD,3068 which834 he spoke1696 unto him.

27  And he spoke1696 to413 his sons,1121 saying,559 Saddle2280 me 853 the ass.2543 And they saddled2280 him.

28  And he went1980 and found4672 853 his carcass5038 cast7993 in the way,1870 and the ass2543 and the lion738 standing5975 by681 the carcass:5038 the lion738 had not3808 eaten398 853 the carcass,5038 nor3808 torn7665 853 the ass.2543

29  And the prophet5030 took up5375 853 the carcass5038 of the man376 of God,430 and laid5117 it upon413 the ass,2543 and brought it back:7725 and the old2205 prophet5030 came935 to413 the city,5892 to mourn5594 and to bury6912 him.

30  And he laid5117 853 his carcass5038 in his own grave;6913 and they mourned5594 over5921 him, saying, Alas,1945 my brother!251

31  And it came to pass,1961 after310 he had buried6912 him, that he spoke559 to413 his sons,1121 saying,559 When I am dead,4191 then bury6912 me in the sepulcher6913 wherein834 the man376 of God430 is buried;6912 lay5117 853 my bones6106 beside681 his bones:6106

32  For3588 the saying1697 which834 he cried7121 by the word1697 of the LORD3068 against5921 the altar4196 in Bethel,1008 and against5921 all3605 the houses1004 of the high places1116 which834 are in the cities5892 of Samaria,8111 shall surely come to pass.1961 1961

33  After310 this2088 thing1697 Jeroboam3379 returned7725 not3808 from his evil way,4480 1870 7451 but made6213 again7725 of the lowest4480 7098 of the people5971 priests3548 of the high places:1116 whosoever would,2655 he consecrated4390 853 3027 him, and he became1961 one of the priests3548 of the high places.1116

34  And this2088 thing1697 became1961 sin2403 unto the house1004 of Jeroboam,3379 even to cut it off,3582 and to destroy8045 it from off4480 5921 the face6440 of the earth.127


1 καὶ ἰδοὺ ἄνθρωπος τοῦ θεοῦ ἐξ Ιουδα παρεγένετο ἐν λόγῳ κυρίου εἰς Βαιθηλ καὶ Ιεροβοαμ εἱστήκει ἐπὶ τὸ θυσιαστήριον τοῦ ἐπιθῦσαι

2 καὶ ἐπεκάλεσεν πρὸς τὸ θυσιαστήριον ἐν λόγῳ κυρίου καὶ εἶπεν θυσιαστήριον θυσιαστήριον τάδε λέγει κύριος ἰδοὺ υἱὸς τίκτεται τῷ οἴκῳ Δαυιδ Ιωσιας ὄνομα αὐτῷ καὶ θύσει ἐπὶ σὲ τοὺς ἱερεῖς τῶν ὑψηλῶν τοὺς ἐπιθύοντας ἐπὶ σὲ καὶ ὀστᾶ ἀνθρώπων καύσει ἐπὶ σέ

3 καὶ ἔδωκεν ἐν τῇ ἡμέρᾳ ἐκείνῃ τέρας λέγων τοῦτο τὸ ῥῆμα ὃ ἐλάλησεν κύριος λέγων ἰδοὺ τὸ θυσιαστήριον ῥήγνυται καὶ ἐκχυθήσεται ἡ πιότης ἡ ἐπ᾽ αὐτῷ

4 καὶ ἐγένετο ὡς ἤκουσεν ὁ βασιλεὺς Ιεροβοαμ τῶν λόγων τοῦ ἀνθρώπου τοῦ θεοῦ τοῦ ἐπικαλεσαμένου ἐπὶ τὸ θυσιαστήριον τὸ ἐν Βαιθηλ καὶ ἐξέτεινεν ὁ βασιλεὺς τὴν χεῖρα αὐτοῦ ἀπὸ τοῦ θυσιαστηρίου λέγων συλλάβετε αὐτόν καὶ ἰδοὺ ἐξηράνθη ἡ χεὶρ αὐτοῦ ἣν ἐξέτεινεν ἐπ᾽ αὐτόν καὶ οὐκ ἠδυνήθη ἐπιστρέψαι αὐτὴν πρὸς ἑαυτόν

5 καὶ τὸ θυσιαστήριον ἐρράγη καὶ ἐξεχύθη ἡ πιότης ἀπὸ τοῦ θυσιαστηρίου κατὰ τὸ τέρας ὃ ἔδωκεν ὁ ἄνθρωπος τοῦ θεοῦ ἐν λόγῳ κυρίου

6 καὶ εἶπεν ὁ βασιλεὺς Ιεροβοαμ τῷ ἀνθρώπῳ τοῦ θεοῦ δεήθητι τοῦ προσώπου κυρίου τοῦ θεοῦ σου καὶ ἐπιστρεψάτω ἡ χείρ μου πρός με καὶ ἐδεήθη ὁ ἄνθρωπος τοῦ θεοῦ τοῦ προσώπου κυρίου καὶ ἐπέστρεψεν τὴν χεῖρα τοῦ βασιλέως πρὸς αὐτόν καὶ ἐγένετο καθὼς τὸ πρότερον

7 καὶ ἐλάλησεν ὁ βασιλεὺς πρὸς τὸν ἄνθρωπον τοῦ θεοῦ εἴσελθε μετ᾽ ἐμοῦ εἰς οἶκον καὶ ἀρίστησον καὶ δώσω σοι δόμα

8 καὶ εἶπεν ὁ ἄνθρωπος τοῦ θεοῦ πρὸς τὸν βασιλέα ἐάν μοι δῷς τὸ ἥμισυ τοῦ οἴκου σου οὐκ εἰσελεύσομαι μετὰ σοῦ οὐδὲ μὴ φάγω ἄρτον οὐδὲ μὴ πίω ὕδωρ ἐν τῷ τόπῳ τούτῳ

9 ὅτι οὕτως ἐνετείλατό μοι ἐν λόγῳ κύριος λέγων μὴ φάγῃς ἄρτον καὶ μὴ πίῃς ὕδωρ καὶ μὴ ἐπιστρέψῃς ἐν τῇ ὁδῷ ᾗ ἐπορεύθης ἐν αὐτῇ

10 καὶ ἀπῆλθεν ἐν ὁδῷ ἄλλῃ καὶ οὐκ ἀνέστρεψεν ἐν τῇ ὁδῷ ᾗ ἦλθεν ἐν αὐτῇ εἰς Βαιθηλ

11 καὶ προφήτης εἷς πρεσβύτης κατῴκει ἐν Βαιθηλ καὶ ἔρχονται οἱ υἱοὶ αὐτοῦ καὶ διηγήσαντο αὐτῷ ἅπαντα τὰ ἔργα ἃ ἐποίησεν ὁ ἄνθρωπος τοῦ θεοῦ ἐν τῇ ἡμέρᾳ ἐκείνῃ ἐν Βαιθηλ καὶ τοὺς λόγους οὓς ἐλάλησεν τῷ βασιλεῖ καὶ ἐπέστρεψαν τὸ πρόσωπον τοῦ πατρὸς αὐτῶν

12 καὶ ἐλάλησεν πρὸς αὐτοὺς ὁ πατὴρ αὐτῶν λέγων ποίᾳ ὁδῷ πεπόρευται καὶ δεικνύουσιν αὐτῷ οἱ υἱοὶ αὐτοῦ τὴν ὁδὸν ἐν ᾗ ἀνῆλθεν ὁ ἄνθρωπος τοῦ θεοῦ ὁ ἐλθὼν ἐξ Ιουδα

13 καὶ εἶπεν τοῖς υἱοῖς αὐτοῦ ἐπισάξατέ μοι τὸν ὄνον καὶ ἐπέσαξαν αὐτῷ τὸν ὄνον καὶ ἐπέβη ἐπ᾽ αὐτόν

14 καὶ ἐπορεύθη κατόπισθεν τοῦ ἀνθρώπου τοῦ θεοῦ καὶ εὗρεν αὐτὸν καθήμενον ὑπὸ δρῦν καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῷ εἰ σὺ εἶ ὁ ἄνθρωπος τοῦ θεοῦ ὁ ἐληλυθὼς ἐξ Ιουδα καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῷ ἐγώ

15 καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῷ δεῦρο μετ᾽ ἐμοῦ καὶ φάγε ἄρτον

16 καὶ εἶπεν οὐ μὴ δύνωμαι τοῦ ἐπιστρέψαι μετὰ σοῦ οὐδὲ μὴ φάγομαι ἄρτον οὐδὲ πίομαι ὕδωρ ἐν τῷ τόπῳ τούτῳ

17 ὅτι οὕτως ἐντέταλταί μοι ἐν λόγῳ κύριος λέγων μὴ φάγῃς ἄρτον ἐκεῖ καὶ μὴ πίῃς ὕδωρ ἐκεῖ καὶ μὴ ἐπιστρέψῃς ἐν τῇ ὁδῷ ᾗ ἐπορεύθης ἐν αὐτῇ

18 καὶ εἶπεν πρὸς αὐτόν κἀγὼ προφήτης εἰμὶ καθὼς σύ καὶ ἄγγελος λελάληκεν πρός με ἐν ῥήματι κυρίου λέγων ἐπίστρεψον αὐτὸν πρὸς σεαυτὸν εἰς τὸν οἶκόν σου καὶ φαγέτω ἄρτον καὶ πιέτω ὕδωρ καὶ ἐψεύσατο αὐτῷ

19 καὶ ἐπέστρεψεν αὐτόν καὶ ἔφαγεν ἄρτον καὶ ἔπιεν ὕδωρ ἐν τῷ οἴκῳ αὐτοῦ

20 καὶ ἐγένετο αὐτῶν καθημένων ἐπὶ τῆς τραπέζης καὶ ἐγένετο λόγος κυρίου πρὸς τὸν προφήτην τὸν ἐπιστρέψαντα αὐτὸν

21 καὶ εἶπεν πρὸς τὸν ἄνθρωπον τοῦ θεοῦ τὸν ἥκοντα ἐξ Ιουδα λέγων τάδε λέγει κύριος ἀνθ᾽ ὧν παρεπίκρανας τὸ ῥῆμα κυρίου καὶ οὐκ ἐφύλαξας τὴν ἐντολήν ἣν ἐνετείλατό σοι κύριος ὁ θεός σου

22 καὶ ἐπέστρεψας καὶ ἔφαγες ἄρτον καὶ ἔπιες ὕδωρ ἐν τῷ τόπῳ τούτῳ ᾧ ἐλάλησεν πρὸς σὲ λέγων μὴ φάγῃς ἄρτον καὶ μὴ πίῃς ὕδωρ οὐ μὴ εἰσέλθῃ τὸ σῶμά σου εἰς τὸν τάφον τῶν πατέρων σου

23 καὶ ἐγένετο μετὰ τὸ φαγεῖν ἄρτον καὶ πιεῖν ὕδωρ καὶ ἐπέσαξεν αὐτῷ τὸν ὄνον καὶ ἐπέστρεψεν

24 καὶ ἀπῆλθεν καὶ εὗρεν αὐτὸν λέων ἐν τῇ ὁδῷ καὶ ἐθανάτωσεν αὐτόν καὶ ἦν τὸ σῶμα αὐτοῦ ἐρριμμένον ἐν τῇ ὁδῷ καὶ ὁ ὄνος εἱστήκει παρ᾽ αὐτό καὶ ὁ λέων εἱστήκει παρὰ τὸ σῶμα

25 καὶ ἰδοὺ ἄνδρες παραπορευόμενοι καὶ εἶδον τὸ θνησιμαῖον ἐρριμμένον ἐν τῇ ὁδῷ καὶ ὁ λέων εἱστήκει ἐχόμενα τοῦ θνησιμαίου καὶ εἰσῆλθον καὶ ἐλάλησαν ἐν τῇ πόλει οὗ ὁ προφήτης ὁ πρεσβύτης κατῴκει ἐν αὐτῇ

26 καὶ ἤκουσεν ὁ ἐπιστρέψας αὐτὸν ἐκ τῆς ὁδοῦ καὶ εἶπεν ὁ ἄνθρωπος τοῦ θεοῦ οὗτός ἐστιν ὃς παρεπίκρανε τὸ ῥῆμα κυρίου

28 καὶ ἐπορεύθη καὶ εὗρεν τὸ σῶμα αὐτοῦ ἐρριμμένον ἐν τῇ ὁδῷ καὶ ὁ ὄνος καὶ ὁ λέων εἱστήκεισαν παρὰ τὸ σῶμα καὶ οὐκ ἔφαγεν ὁ λέων τὸ σῶμα τοῦ ἀνθρώπου τοῦ θεοῦ καὶ οὐ συνέτριψεν τὸν ὄνον

29 καὶ ἦρεν ὁ προφήτης τὸ σῶμα τοῦ ἀνθρώπου τοῦ θεοῦ καὶ ἐπέθηκεν αὐτὸ ἐπὶ τὸν ὄνον καὶ ἐπέστρεψεν αὐτὸν εἰς τὴν πόλιν ὁ προφήτης τοῦ θάψαι αὐτὸν

30 ἐν τῷ τάφῳ ἑαυτοῦ καὶ ἐκόψαντο αὐτόν οὐαὶ ἀδελφέ

31 καὶ ἐγένετο μετὰ τὸ κόψασθαι αὐτὸν καὶ εἶπεν τοῖς υἱοῖς αὐτοῦ λέγων ἐὰν ἀποθάνω θάψατέ με ἐν τῷ τάφῳ τούτῳ οὗ ὁ ἄνθρωπος τοῦ θεοῦ τέθαπται ἐν αὐτῷ παρὰ τὰ ὀστᾶ αὐτοῦ θέτε με ἵνα σωθῶσι τὰ ὀστᾶ μου μετὰ τῶν ὀστῶν αὐτοῦ

32 ὅτι γινόμενον ἔσται τὸ ῥῆμα ὃ ἐλάλησεν ἐν λόγῳ κυρίου ἐπὶ τοῦ θυσιαστηρίου τοῦ ἐν Βαιθηλ καὶ ἐπὶ τοὺς οἴκους τοὺς ὑψηλοὺς τοὺς ἐν Σαμαρείᾳ

33 καὶ μετὰ τὸ ῥῆμα τοῦτο οὐκ ἐπέστρεψεν Ιεροβοαμ ἀπὸ τῆς κακίας αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐπέστρεψεν καὶ ἐποίησεν ἐκ μέρους τοῦ λαοῦ ἱερεῖς ὑψηλῶν ὁ βουλόμενος ἐπλήρου τὴν χεῖρα αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐγίνετο ἱερεὺς εἰς τὰ ὑψηλά

34 καὶ ἐγένετο τὸ ῥῆμα τοῦτο εἰς ἁμαρτίαν τῷ οἴκῳ Ιεροβοαμ καὶ εἰς ὄλεθρον καὶ εἰς ἀφανισμὸν ἀπὸ προσώπου τῆς γῆς

1 Et ecce vir Dei venit de Juda in sermone Domini in Bethel, Jeroboam stante super altare, et thus jaciente.

2 Et exclamavit contra altare in sermone Domini, et ait: Altare, altare, hæc dicit Dominus: Ecce filius nascetur domui David, Josias nomine, et immolabit super te sacerdotes excelsorum, qui nunc in te thura succendunt: et ossa hominum super te incendet.

3 Deditque in illa die signum, dicens: Hoc erit signum quod locutus est Dominus: ecce altare scindetur, et effundetur cinis qui in eo est.

4 Cumque audisset rex sermonem hominis Dei quem inclamaverat contra altare in Bethel, extendit manum suam de altari, dicens: Apprehendite eum. Et exaruit manus ejus quam extenderat contra eum, nec valuit retrahere eam ad se.

5 Altare quoque scissum est, et effusus est cinis de altari, juxta signum quod prædixerat vir Dei in sermone Domini.

6 Et ait rex ad virum Dei: Deprecare faciem Domini Dei tui, et ora pro me, ut restituatur manus mea mihi. Oravitque vir Dei faciem Domini, et reversa est manus regis ad eum, et facta est sicut prius fuerat.

7 Locutus est autem rex ad virum Dei: Veni mecum domum ut prandeas, et dabo tibi munera.

8 Responditque vir Dei ad regem: Si dederis mihi mediam partem domus tuæ, non veniam tecum, nec comedam panem, neque bibam aquam in loco isto:

9 sic enim mandatum est mihi in sermone Domini præcipientis: Non comedes panem, neque bibes aquam, nec reverteris per viam qua venisti.

10 Abiit ergo per aliam viam, et non est reversus per iter quo venerat in Bethel.

11 Prophetes autem quidam senex habitabat in Bethel: ad quem venerunt filii sui, et narraverunt ei omnia opera quæ fecerat vir Dei illa die in Bethel: et verba quæ locutus fuerat ad regem, narraverunt patri suo.

12 Et dixit eis pater eorum: Per quam viam abiit? Ostenderunt ei filii sui viam per quam abierat vir Dei, qui venerat de Juda.

13 Et ait filiis suis: Sternite mihi asinum. Qui cum stravissent, ascendit,

14 et abiit post virum Dei, et invenit eum sedentem subtus terebinthum: et ait illi: Tune es vir Dei qui venisti de Juda? Respondit ille: Ego sum.

15 Dixitque ad eum: Veni mecum domum, ut comedas panem.

16 Qui ait: Non possum reverti, neque venire tecum: nec comedam panem, neque bibam aquam in loco isto,

17 quia locutus est Dominus ad me in sermone Domini, dicens: Non comedes panem, et non bibes aquam ibi, nec reverteris per viam qua ieris.

18 Qui ait illi: Et ego propheta sum similis tui: et angelus locutus est mihi in sermone Domini, dicens: Reduc eum tecum in domum tuam, ut comedat panem, et bibat aquam. Fefellit eum,

19 et reduxit secum: comedit ergo panem in domo ejus, et bibit aquam.

20 Cumque sederent ad mensam, factus est sermo Domini ad prophetam qui reduxerat eum.

21 Et exclamavit ad virum Dei qui venerat de Juda, dicens: Hæc dicit Dominus: Quia non obediens fuisti ori Domini, et non custodisti mandatum quod præcepit tibi Dominus Deus tuus,

22 et reversus es, et comedisti panem, et bibisti aquam in loco in quo præcepit tibi ne comederes panem neque biberes aquam, non inferetur cadaver tuum in sepulchrum patrum tuorum.

23 Cumque comedisset et bibisset, stravit asinum suum prophetæ quem reduxerat.

24 Qui cum abiisset, invenit eum leo in via, et occidit, et erat cadaver ejus projectum in itinere: asinus autem stabat juxta illum, et leo stabat juxta cadaver.

25 Et ecce viri transeuntes viderunt cadaver projectum in via, et leonem stantem juxta cadaver. Et venerunt, et divulgaverunt in civitate in qua prophetes ille senex habitabat.

26 Quod cum audisset propheta ille qui reduxerat eum, ait: Vir Dei est, qui inobediens fuit ori Domini, et tradidit eum Dominus leoni, et confregit eum, et occidit juxta verbum Domini quod locutus est ei.

27 Dixitque ad filios suos: Sternite mihi asinum. Qui cum stravissent,

28 et ille abiisset, invenit cadaver ejus projectum in via, et asinum et leonem stantes juxta cadaver: non comedit leo de cadavere, nec læsit asinum.

29 Tulit ergo prophetes cadaver viri Dei, et posuit illud super asinum, et reversus intulit in civitatem prophetæ senis ut plangeret eum.

30 Et posuit cadaver ejus in sepulchro suo, et planxerunt eum: Heu, heu mi frater!

31 Cumque planxissent eum, dixit ad filios suos: Cum mortuus fuero, sepelite me in sepulchro in quo vir Dei sepultus est: juxta ossa ejus ponite ossa mea.

32 Profecto enim veniet sermo quem prædixit in sermone Domini contra altare quod est in Bethel, et contra omnia fana excelsorum quæ sunt in urbibus Samariæ.

33 Post verba hæc non est reversus Jeroboam de via sua pessima, sed e contrario fecit de novissimis populi sacerdotes excelsorum: quicumque volebat, implebat manum suam, et fiebat sacerdos excelsorum.

34 Et propter hanc causam peccavit domus Jeroboam, et eversa est, et deleta de superficie terræ.
