2 Chronicles 28


1  Ahaz271 was twenty6242 years8141 old1121 when he began to reign,4427 and he reigned4427 sixteen8337 6240 years8141 in Jerusalem:3389 but he did6213 not3808 that which was right3477 in the sight5869 of the LORD,3068 like David1732 his father:1

2  For he walked1980 in the ways1870 of the kings4428 of Israel,3478 and made6213 also1571 molten images4541 for Baalim.1168

3  Moreover he1931 burnt incense6999 in the valley1516 of the son1121 of Hinnom,2011 and burnt1197 853 his children1121 in the fire,784 after the abominations8441 of the heathen1471 whom834 the LORD3068 had cast out3423 before4480 6440 the children1121 of Israel.3478

4  He sacrificed2076 also and burnt incense6999 in the high places,1116 and on5921 the hills,1389 and under8478 every3605 green7488 tree.6086

5  Wherefore the LORD3068 his God430 delivered5414 him into the hand3027 of the king4428 of Syria;758 and they smote5221 him, and carried away7617 a great1419 multitude of4480 them captives,7633 and brought935 them to Damascus.1834 And he was also1571 delivered5414 into the hand3027 of the king4428 of Israel,3478 who smote5221 him with a great1419 slaughter.4347

6  For Pekah6492 the son1121 of Remaliah7425 slew2026 in Judah3063 a hundred3967 and twenty6242 thousand505 in one259 day,3117 which were all3605 valiant men;1121 2428 because they had forsaken5800 853 the LORD3068 God430 of their fathers.1

7  And Zichri,2147 a mighty man1368 of Ephraim,669 slew2026 853 Maaseiah4641 the king's4428 son,1121 and Azrikam5840 the governor5057 of the house,1004 and Elkanah511 that was next4932 to the king.4428

8  And the children1121 of Israel3478 carried away captive7617 of their brethren4480 251 two hundred3967 thousand,505 women,802 sons,1121 and daughters,1323 and took also away962 1571 much7227 spoil7998 from4480 them, and brought935 853 the spoil7998 to Samaria.8111

9  But a prophet5030 of the LORD3068 was1961 there,8033 whose name8034 was Oded:5752 and he went out3318 before6440 the host6635 that came935 to Samaria,8111 and said559 unto them, Behold,2009 because the LORD3068 God430 of your fathers1 was wroth2534 with5921 Judah,3063 he hath delivered5414 them into your hand,3027 and ye have slain2026 them in a rage2197 that reacheth up5060 unto5704 heaven.8064

10  And now6258 ye859 purpose559 to keep under3533 the children1121 of Judah3063 and Jerusalem3389 for bondmen5650 and bondwomen8198 unto you: but are there not3808 with5973 you, even7535 with you,859 sins819 against the LORD3068 your God?430

11  Now6258 hear8085 me therefore, and deliver7725 the captives7633 again, which834 ye have taken captive7617 of your brethren:4480 251 for3588 the fierce2740 wrath639 of the LORD3068 is upon5921 you.

12  Then certain376 of the heads4480 7218 of the children1121 of Ephraim,669 Azariah5838 the son1121 of Johanan,3076 Berechiah1296 the son1121 of Meshillemoth,4919 and Jehizkiah3169 the son1121 of Shallum,7967 and Amasa6021 the son1121 of Hadlai,2311 stood up6965 against5921 them that came935 from4480 the war,6635

13  And said559 unto them, Ye shall not3808 bring in935 853 the captives7633 hither:2008 for whereas3588 we have offended against819 5921 the LORD3068 already, ye859 intend559 to add3254 more to5921 our sins2403 and to5921 our trespass:819 for3588 our trespass819 is great,7227 and there is fierce2740 wrath639 against5921 Israel.3478

14  So the armed men2502 left5800 853 the captives7633 and the spoil961 before6440 the princes8269 and all3605 the congregation.6951

15  And the men376 which834 were expressed5344 by name8034 rose up,6965 and took2388 the captives,7633 and with4480 the spoil7998 clothed3847 all3605 that were naked4636 among them, and arrayed3847 them, and shod5274 them, and gave them to eat398 and to drink,8248 and anointed5480 them, and carried5095 all3605 the feeble3782 of them upon asses,2543 and brought935 them to Jericho,3405 the city of palm trees,5899 to681 their brethren:251 then they returned7725 to Samaria.8111

16  At that1931 time6256 did king4428 Ahaz271 send7971 unto5921 the kings4428 of Assyria804 to help5826 him.

17  For again5750 the Edomites130 had come935 and smitten5221 Judah,3063 and carried away7617 captives.7628

18  The Philistines6430 also had invaded6584 the cities5892 of the low country,8219 and of the south5045 of Judah,3063 and had taken3920 853 Beth-shemesh,1053 and Ajalon,357 and Gederoth,1450 and Shocho7755 with the villages1323 thereof, and Timnah8553 with the villages1323 thereof, Gimzo1579 also and the villages1323 thereof: and they dwelt3427 there.8033

19  For3588 the LORD3068 brought3665 853 Judah3063 low because of5668 Ahaz271 king4428 of Israel;3478 for3588 he made Judah naked,6544 3063 and transgressed4603 sore4604 against the LORD.3068

20  And Tiglath-pileser8407 king4428 of Assyria804 came935 unto5921 him, and distressed6696 him, but strengthened2388 him not.3808

21  For3588 Ahaz271 took away a portion2505 out of 853 the house1004 of the LORD,3068 and out of the house1004 of the king,4428 and of the princes,8269 and gave5414 it unto the king4428 of Assyria:804 but he helped5833 him not.3808

22  And in the time6256 of his distress6887 did he trespass4603 yet more3254 against the LORD:3068 this1931 is that king4428 Ahaz.271

23  For he sacrificed2076 unto the gods430 of Damascus,1834 which smote5221 him: and he said,559 Because3588 the gods430 of the kings4428 of Syria758 help5826 them, therefore will I sacrifice2076 to them, that they may help5826 me. But they1992 were1961 the ruin3782 of him, and of all3605 Israel.3478

24  And Ahaz271 gathered together622 853 the vessels3627 of the house1004 of God,430 and cut in pieces7112 853 the vessels3627 of the house1004 of God,430 and shut up5462 853 the doors1817 of the house1004 of the LORD,3068 and he made6213 him altars4196 in every3605 corner6438 of Jerusalem.3389

25  And in every3605 several city5892 5892 of Judah3063 he made6213 high places1116 to burn incense6999 unto other312 gods,430 and provoked to anger3707 853 the LORD3068 God430 of his fathers.1

26  Now the rest3499 of his acts1697 and of all3605 his ways,1870 first7223 and last,314 behold,2009 they are written3789 in5921 the book5612 of the kings4428 of Judah3063 and Israel.3478

27  And Ahaz271 slept7901 with5973 his fathers,1 and they buried6912 him in the city,5892 even in Jerusalem:3389 but3588 they brought935 him not3808 into the sepulchers6913 of the kings4428 of Israel:3478 and Hezekiah3169 his son1121 reigned4427 in his stead.8478


1 υἱὸς εἴκοσι ἐτῶν Αχαζ ἐν τῷ βασιλεῦσαι αὐτὸν καὶ δέκα ἓξ ἔτη ἐβασίλευσεν ἐν Ιερουσαλημ καὶ οὐκ ἐποίησεν τὸ εὐθὲς ἐνώπιον κυρίου ὡς Δαυιδ ὁ πατὴρ αὐτοῦ

2 καὶ ἐπορεύθη κατὰ τὰς ὁδοὺς βασιλέων Ισραηλ καὶ γὰρ γλυπτὰ ἐποίησεν τοῖς εἰδώλοις αὐτῶν

3 καὶ ἔθυεν ἐν Γαιβενενομ καὶ διῆγεν τὰ τέκνα αὐτοῦ διὰ πυρὸς κατὰ τὰ βδελύγματα τῶν ἐθνῶν ὧν ἐξωλέθρευσεν κύριος ἀπὸ προσώπου υἱῶν Ισραηλ

4 καὶ ἐθυμία ἐπὶ τῶν ὑψηλῶν καὶ ἐπὶ τῶν δωμάτων καὶ ὑποκάτω παντὸς ξύλου ἀλσώδους

5 καὶ παρέδωκεν αὐτὸν κύριος ὁ θεὸς αὐτοῦ διὰ χειρὸς βασιλέως Συρίας καὶ ἐπάταξεν ἐν αὐτῷ καὶ ᾐχμαλώτευσεν ἐξ αὐτῶν αἰχμαλωσίαν πολλὴν καὶ ἤγαγεν εἰς Δαμασκόν καὶ γὰρ εἰς τὰς χεῖρας βασιλέως Ισραηλ παρέδωκεν αὐτόν καὶ ἐπάταξεν ἐν αὐτῷ πληγὴν μεγάλην

6 καὶ ἀπέκτεινεν Φακεε ὁ τοῦ Ρομελια βασιλεὺς Ισραηλ ἐν Ιουδα ἐν μιᾷ ἡμέρᾳ ἑκατὸν εἴκοσι χιλιάδας ἀνδρῶν δυνατῶν ἰσχύι ἐν τῷ αὐτοὺς καταλιπεῖν τὸν κύριον θεὸν τῶν πατέρων αὐτῶν

7 καὶ ἀπέκτεινεν Εζεκρι ὁ δυνατὸς τοῦ Εφραιμ τὸν Μαασαιαν τὸν υἱὸν τοῦ βασιλέως καὶ τὸν Εσδρικαμ ἡγούμενον τοῦ οἴκου αὐτοῦ καὶ τὸν Ελκανα τὸν διάδοχον τοῦ βασιλέως

8 καὶ ᾐχμαλώτισαν οἱ υἱοὶ Ισραηλ ἀπὸ τῶν ἀδελφῶν αὐτῶν τριακοσίας χιλιάδας γυναῖκας υἱοὺς καὶ θυγατέρας καὶ σκῦλα πολλὰ ἐσκύλευσαν ἐξ αὐτῶν καὶ ἤνεγκαν τὰ σκῦλα εἰς Σαμάρειαν

9 καὶ ἐκεῖ ἦν ὁ προφήτης τοῦ κυρίου Ωδηδ ὄνομα αὐτῷ καὶ ἐξῆλθεν εἰς ἀπάντησιν τῆς δυνάμεως τῶν ἐρχομένων εἰς Σαμάρειαν καὶ εἶπεν αὐτοῖς ἰδοὺ ὀργὴ κυρίου θεοῦ τῶν πατέρων ὑμῶν ἐπὶ τὸν Ιουδαν καὶ παρέδωκεν αὐτοὺς εἰς τὰς χεῖρας ὑμῶν καὶ ἀπεκτείνατε ἐν αὐτοῖς ἐν ὀργῇ ἕως τῶν οὐρανῶν ἔφθακεν

10 καὶ νῦν υἱοὺς Ιουδα καὶ Ιερουσαλημ ὑμεῖς λέγετε κατακτήσεσθαι εἰς δούλους καὶ δούλας οὐκ ἰδού εἰμι μεθ᾽ ὑμῶν μαρτυρῆσαι κυρίῳ θεῷ ὑμῶν

11 καὶ νῦν ἀκούσατέ μου καὶ ἀποστρέψατε τὴν αἰχμαλωσίαν ἣν ᾐχμαλωτεύσατε τῶν ἀδελφῶν ὑμῶν ὅτι ὀργὴ θυμοῦ κυρίου ἐφ᾽ ὑμῖν

12 καὶ ἀνέστησαν ἄρχοντες ἀπὸ τῶν υἱῶν Εφραιμ Ουδια ὁ τοῦ Ιωανου καὶ Βαραχιας ὁ τοῦ Μοσολαμωθ καὶ Εζεκιας ὁ τοῦ Σελλημ καὶ Αμασιας ὁ τοῦ Χοδλι ἐπὶ τοὺς ἐρχομένους ἀπὸ τοῦ πολέμου

13 καὶ εἶπαν αὐτοῖς οὐ μὴ εἰσαγάγητε τὴν αἰχμαλωσίαν ὧδε πρὸς ἡμᾶς ὅτι εἰς τὸ ἁμαρτάνειν τῷ κυρίῳ ἐφ᾽ ἡμᾶς ὑμεῖς λέγετε προσθεῖναι ἐπὶ ταῖς ἁμαρτίαις ἡμῶν καὶ ἐπὶ τὴν ἄγνοιαν ὅτι πολλὴ ἡ ἁμαρτία ἡμῶν καὶ ὀργὴ θυμοῦ κυρίου ἐπὶ τὸν Ισραηλ

14 καὶ ἀφῆκαν οἱ πολεμισταὶ τὴν αἰχμαλωσίαν καὶ τὰ σκῦλα ἐναντίον τῶν ἀρχόντων καὶ πάσης τῆς ἐκκλησίας

15 καὶ ἀνέστησαν ἄνδρες οἳ ἐπεκλήθησαν ἐν ὀνόματι καὶ ἀντελάβοντο τῆς αἰχμαλωσίας καὶ πάντας τοὺς γυμνοὺς περιέβαλον ἀπὸ τῶν σκύλων καὶ ἐνέδυσαν αὐτοὺς καὶ ὑπέδησαν αὐτοὺς καὶ ἔδωκαν φαγεῖν καὶ ἀλείψασθαι καὶ ἀντελάβοντο ἐν ὑποζυγίοις παντὸς ἀσθενοῦντος καὶ κατέστησαν αὐτοὺς εἰς Ιεριχω πόλιν φοινίκων πρὸς τοὺς ἀδελφοὺς αὐτῶν καὶ ἐπέστρεψαν εἰς Σαμάρειαν

16 ἐν τῷ καιρῷ ἐκείνῳ ἀπέστειλεν Αχαζ πρὸς βασιλέα Ασσουρ βοηθῆσαι αὐτῷ

17 καὶ ἐν τούτῳ ὅτι Ιδουμαῖοι ἐπέθεντο καὶ ἐπάταξαν ἐν Ιουδα καὶ ᾐχμαλώτισαν αἰχμαλωσίαν

18 καὶ οἱ ἀλλόφυλοι ἐπέθεντο ἐπὶ τὰς πόλεις τῆς πεδινῆς καὶ ἀπὸ λιβὸς τοῦ Ιουδα καὶ ἔλαβον τὴν Βαιθσαμυς καὶ τὴν Αιλων καὶ τὴν Γαδηρωθ καὶ τὴν Σωχω καὶ τὰς κώμας αὐτῆς καὶ τὴν Θαμνα καὶ τὰς κώμας αὐτῆς καὶ τὴν Γαμζω καὶ τὰς κώμας αὐτῆς καὶ κατῴκησαν ἐκεῖ

19 ὅτι ἐταπείνωσεν κύριος τὸν Ιουδαν δι᾽ Αχαζ βασιλέα Ιουδα ὅτι ἀπέστη ἀποστάσει ἀπὸ κυρίου

20 καὶ ἦλθεν ἐπ᾽ αὐτὸν Θαγλαθφελλασαρ βασιλεὺς Ασσουρ καὶ ἐπάταξεν αὐτόν

21 καὶ ἔλαβεν Αχαζ τὰ ἐν οἴκῳ κυρίου καὶ τὰ ἐν οἴκῳ τοῦ βασιλέως καὶ τῶν ἀρχόντων καὶ ἔδωκεν τῷ βασιλεῖ Ασσουρ καὶ οὐκ εἰς βοήθειαν αὐτῷ

22 ἀλλ᾽ ἢ τῷ θλιβῆναι αὐτὸν καὶ προσέθηκεν τοῦ ἀποστῆναι ἀπὸ κυρίου καὶ εἶπεν ὁ βασιλεύς

23 ἐκζητήσω τοὺς θεοὺς Δαμασκοῦ τοὺς τύπτοντάς με καὶ εἶπεν ὅτι θεοὶ βασιλέως Συρίας αὐτοὶ κατισχύσουσιν αὐτούς αὐτοῖς τοίνυν θύσω καὶ ἀντιλήμψονταί μου καὶ αὐτοὶ ἐγένοντο αὐτῷ εἰς σκῶλον καὶ παντὶ Ισραηλ

24 καὶ ἀπέστησεν Αχαζ τὰ σκεύη οἴκου κυρίου καὶ κατέκοψεν αὐτὰ καὶ ἔκλεισεν τὰς θύρας οἴκου κυρίου καὶ ἐποίησεν ἑαυτῷ θυσιαστήρια ἐν πάσῃ γωνίᾳ ἐν Ιερουσαλημ

25 καὶ ἐν πάσῃ πόλει καὶ πόλει ἐν Ιουδα ἐποίησεν ὑψηλὰ θυμιᾶν θεοῖς ἀλλοτρίοις καὶ παρώργισαν κύριον τὸν θεὸν τῶν πατέρων αὐτῶν

26 καὶ οἱ λοιποὶ λόγοι αὐτοῦ καὶ αἱ πράξεις αὐτοῦ αἱ πρῶται καὶ αἱ ἔσχαται ἰδοὺ γεγραμμέναι ἐπὶ βιβλίῳ βασιλέων Ιουδα καὶ Ισραηλ

27 καὶ ἐκοιμήθη Αχαζ μετὰ τῶν πατέρων αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐτάφη ἐν πόλει Δαυιδ ὅτι οὐκ εἰσήνεγκαν αὐτὸν εἰς τοὺς τάφους τῶν βασιλέων Ισραηλ καὶ ἐβασίλευσεν Εζεκιας υἱὸς αὐτοῦ ἀντ᾽ αὐτοῦ

1 Viginti annorum erat Achaz cum regnare cœpisset, et sedecim annis regnavit in Jerusalem. Non fecit rectum in conspectu Domini sicut David pater ejus,

2 sed ambulavit in viis regum Israël, insuper et statuas fudit Baalim.

3 Ipse est qui adolevit incensum in valle Benennom, et lustravit filios suos in igne juxta ritum gentium quas interfecit Dominus in adventu filiorum Israël.

4 Sacrificabat quoque, et thymiama succendebat in excelsis, et in collibus, et sub omni ligno frondoso.

5 Tradiditque eum Dominus Deus ejus in manu regis Syriæ, qui percussit eum, magnamque prædam cepit de ejus imperio, et adduxit in Damascum: manibus quoque regis Israël traditus est, et percussus plaga grandi.

6 Occiditque Phacee filius Romeliæ, de Juda centum viginti millia in die uno, omnes viros bellatores: eo quod reliquissent Dominum Deum patrum suorum.

7 Eodem tempore occidit Zechri, vir potens ex Ephraim, Maasiam filium regis, et Ezricam ducem domus ejus, Elcanam quoque secundum a rege.

8 Ceperuntque filii Israël de fratribus suis ducenta millia mulierum, puerorum, et puellarum, et infinitam prædam: pertuleruntque eam in Samariam.

9 Ea tempestate erat ibi propheta Domini, nomine Oded: qui egressus obviam exercitui venienti in Samariam, dixit eis: Ecce iratus Dominus Deus patrum vestrorum contra Juda, tradidit eos in manibus vestris, et occidistis eos atrociter, ita ut ad cælum pertingeret vestra crudelitas.

10 Insuper filios Juda et Jerusalem vultis vobis subjicere in servos et ancillas: quod nequaquam facto opus est: peccastis enim super hoc Domino Deo vestro.

11 Sed audite consilium meum, et reducite captivos quos adduxistis de fratribus vestris, quia magnus furor Domini imminet vobis.

12 Steterunt itaque viri de principibus filiorum Ephraim, Azarias filius Johanan, Barachias filius Mosollamoth, Ezechias filius Sellum, et Amasa filius Adali, contra eos qui veniebant de prælio,

13 et dixerunt eis: Non introducetis huc captivos, ne peccemus Domino. Quare vultis adjicere super peccata nostra, et vetera cumulare delicta? grande quippe peccatum est, et ira furoris Domini imminet super Israël.

14 Dimiseruntque viri bellatores prædam, et universa quæ ceperant, coram principibus, et omni multitudine.

15 Steteruntque viri quos supra memoravimus, et apprehendentes captivos, omnesque qui nudi erant, vestierunt de spoliis: cumque vestissent eos, et calceassent, et refecissent cibo ac potu, unxissentque propter laborem, et adhibuissent eis curam: quicumque ambulare non poterant, et erant imbecillo corpore, imposuerunt eos jumentis, et adduxerunt Jericho civitatem palmarum ad fratres eorum, ipsique reversi sunt in Samariam.

16 Tempore illo misit rex Achaz ad regem Assyriorum, postulans auxilium.

17 Veneruntque Idumæi, et percusserunt multos ex Juda, et ceperunt prædam magnam.

18 Philisthiim quoque diffusi sunt per urbes campestres, et ad meridiem Juda: ceperuntque Bethsames, et Ajalon, et Gaderoth, Socho quoque, et Thamnan, et Gamzo, cum viculis suis, et habitaverunt in eis.

19 Humiliaverat enim Dominus Judam propter Achaz regem Juda, eo quod nudasset eum auxilio, et contemptui habuisset Dominum.

20 Adduxitque contra eum Thelgathphalnasar regem Assyriorum, qui et afflixit eum, et nullo resistente vastavit.

21 Igitur Achaz, spoliata domo Domini, et domo regum ac principum, dedit regi Assyriorum munera, et tamen nihil ei profuit.

22 Insuper et tempore angustiæ suæ auxit contemptum in Dominum, ipse per se rex Achaz,

23 immolavit diis Damasci victimas percussoribus suis, et dixit: Dii regum Syriæ auxiliantur eis, quos ego placabo hostiis, et aderunt mihi: cum e contrario ipsi fuerint ruinæ ei, et universo Israël.

24 Direptis itaque Achaz omnibus vasis domus Dei, atque confractis, clausit januas templi Dei, et fecit sibi altaria in universis angulis Jerusalem.

25 In omnibus quoque urbibus Juda exstruxit aras ad cremandum thus, atque ad iracundiam provocavit Dominum Deum patrum suorum.

26 Reliqua autem sermonum ejus, et omnium operum suorum priorum et novissimorum, scripta sunt in libro regum Juda et Israël.

27 Dormivitque Achaz cum patribus suis, et sepelierunt eum in civitate Jerusalem: neque enim receperunt eum in sepulchra regum Israël. Regnavitque Ezechias filius ejus pro eo.
