2 Chronicles 36


1  Then the people5971 of the land776 took3947 853 Jehoahaz3059 the son1121 of Josiah,2977 and made him king4427 in his father's stead8478 1 in Jerusalem.3389

2  Jehoahaz3059 was twenty6242 and three7969 years8141 old1121 when he began to reign,4427 and he reigned4427 three7969 months2320 in Jerusalem.3389

3  And the king4428 of Egypt4714 put him down5493 at Jerusalem,3389 and condemned6064 853 the land776 in a hundred3967 talents3603 of silver3701 and a talent3603 of gold.2091

4  And the king4428 of Egypt4714 made 853 Eliakim471 his brother251 king4427 over5921 Judah3063 and Jerusalem,3389 and turned5437 853 his name8034 to Jehoiakim.3079 And Necho5224 took3947 Jehoahaz3059 his brother,251 and carried935 him to Egypt.4714

5  Jehoiakim3079 was twenty6242 and five2568 years8141 old1121 when he began to reign,4427 and he reigned4427 eleven259 6240 years8141 in Jerusalem:3389 and he did6213 that which was evil7451 in the sight5869 of the LORD3068 his God.430

6  Against5921 him came up5927 Nebuchadnezzar5019 king4428 of Babylon,894 and bound631 him in fetters,5178 to carry1980 him to Babylon.894

7  Nebuchadnezzar5019 also carried935 of the vessels4480 3627 of the house1004 of the LORD3068 to Babylon,894 and put5414 them in his temple1964 at Babylon.894

8  Now the rest3499 of the acts1697 of Jehoiakim,3079 and his abominations8441 which834 he did,6213 and that which was found4672 in5921 him, behold,2009 they are written3789 in5921 the book5612 of the kings4428 of Israel3478 and Judah:3063 and Jehoiachin3078 his son1121 reigned4427 in his stead.8478

9  Jehoiachin3078 was eight8083 years8141 old1121 when he began to reign,4427 and he reigned4427 three7969 months2320 and ten6235 days3117 in Jerusalem:3389 and he did6213 that which was evil7451 in the sight5869 of the LORD.3068

10  And when the year8141 was expired,8666 king4428 Nebuchadnezzar5019 sent,7971 and brought935 him to Babylon,894 with5973 the goodly2532 vessels3627 of the house1004 of the LORD,3068 and made4427 853 Zedekiah6667 his brother251 king over5921 Judah3063 and Jerusalem.3389

11  Zedekiah6667 was one259 and twenty6242 years8141 old1121 when he began to reign,4427 and reigned4427 eleven259 6240 years8141 in Jerusalem.3389

12  And he did6213 that which was evil7451 in the sight5869 of the LORD3068 his God,430 and humbled not himself3665 3808 before4480 6440 Jeremiah3414 the prophet5030 speaking from the mouth4480 6310 of the LORD.3068

13  And he also1571 rebelled4775 against king4428 Nebuchadnezzar,5019 who834 had made him swear7650 by God:430 but he stiffened7185 853 his neck,6203 and hardened553 853 his heart3824 from turning4480 7725 unto413 the LORD3068 God430 of Israel.3478

14  Moreover1571 all3605 the chief8269 of the priests,3548 and the people,5971 transgressed very much7235 4603 4604 after all3605 the abominations8441 of the heathen;1471 and polluted2930 853 the house1004 of the LORD3068 which834 he had hallowed6942 in Jerusalem.3389

15  And the LORD3068 God430 of their fathers1 sent7971 to5921 them by3027 his messengers,4397 rising up quickly,7925 and sending;7971 because3588 he had compassion2550 on5921 his people,5971 and on5921 his dwelling place:4583

16  But they mocked1961 3931 the messengers4397 of God,430 and despised959 his words,1697 and misused8591 his prophets,5030 until5704 the wrath2534 of the LORD3068 arose5927 against his people,5971 till5704 there was no369 remedy.4832

17  Therefore he brought5927 upon5921 them 853 the king4428 of the Chaldees,3778 who slew2026 their young men970 with the sword2719 in the house1004 of their sanctuary,4720 and had no compassion2550 3808 upon5921 young man970 or maiden,1330 old man,2205 or him that stooped for age:3486 he gave5414 them all3605 into his hand.3027

18  And all3605 the vessels3627 of the house1004 of God,430 great1419 and small,6996 and the treasures214 of the house1004 of the LORD,3068 and the treasures214 of the king,4428 and of his princes;8269 all3605 these he brought935 to Babylon.894

19  And they burnt8313 853 the house1004 of God,430 and broke down5422 853 the wall2346 of Jerusalem,3389 and burnt8313 all3605 the palaces759 thereof with fire,784 and destroyed7843 all3605 the goodly4261 vessels3627 thereof.

20  And them that had escaped7611 from4480 the sword2719 carried he away1540 to413 Babylon;894 where they were1961 servants5650 to him and his sons1121 until5704 the reign4427 of the kingdom4438 of Persia:6539

21  To fulfill4390 the word1697 of the LORD3068 by the mouth6310 of Jeremiah,3414 until5704 the land776 had enjoyed7521 853 her sabbaths:7676 for as long as3605 3117 she lay desolate8074 she kept sabbath,7673 to fulfill4390 threescore and ten7657 years.8141

22  Now in the first259 year8141 of Cyrus3566 king4428 of Persia,6539 that the word1697 of the LORD3068 spoken by the mouth6310 of Jeremiah3414 might be accomplished,3615 the LORD3068 stirred up5782 853 the spirit7307 of Cyrus3566 king4428 of Persia,6539 that he made a proclamation5674 6963 throughout all3605 his kingdom,4438 and put it also1571 in writing,4385 saying,559

23  Thus3541 saith559 Cyrus3566 king4428 of Persia,6539 All3605 the kingdoms4467 of the earth776 hath the LORD3068 God430 of heaven8064 given5414 me; and he1931 hath charged6485 5921 me to build1129 him a house1004 in Jerusalem,3389 which834 is in Judah.3063 Who4310 is there among you of all4480 3605 his people?5971 The LORD3068 his God430 be with5973 him, and let him go up.5927


1 καὶ ἔλαβεν ὁ λαὸς τῆς γῆς τὸν Ιωαχαζ υἱὸν Ιωσιου καὶ ἔχρισαν αὐτὸν καὶ κατέστησαν αὐτὸν εἰς βασιλέα ἀντὶ τοῦ πατρὸς αὐτοῦ ἐν Ιερουσαλημ

2 υἱὸς εἴκοσι καὶ τριῶν ἐτῶν Ιωαχαζ ἐν τῷ βασιλεύειν αὐτὸν καὶ τρίμηνον ἐβασίλευσεν ἐν Ιερουσαλημ
καὶ ὄνομα τῆς μητρὸς αὐτοῦ Αμιταλ θυγάτηρ Ιερεμιου ἐκ Λοβενα
καὶ ἐποίησεν τὸ πονηρὸν ἐνώπιον κυρίου κατὰ πάντα ἃ ἐποίησαν οἱ πατέρες αὐτοῦ
καὶ ἔδησεν αὐτὸν Φαραω Νεχαω ἐν Δεβλαθα ἐν γῇ Εμαθ τοῦ μὴ βασιλεύειν αὐτὸν ἐν Ιερουσαλημ

3 καὶ μετήγαγεν αὐτὸν ὁ βασιλεὺς εἰς Αἴγυπτον καὶ ἐπέβαλεν φόρον ἐπὶ τὴν γῆν ἑκατὸν τάλαντα ἀργυρίου καὶ τάλαντον χρυσίου

4 καὶ κατέστησεν Φαραω Νεχαω τὸν Ελιακιμ υἱὸν Ιωσιου βασιλέα Ιουδα ἀντὶ Ιωσιου τοῦ πατρὸς αὐτοῦ καὶ μετέστρεψεν τὸ ὄνομα αὐτοῦ Ιωακιμ καὶ τὸν Ιωαχαζ ἀδελφὸν αὐτοῦ ἔλαβεν Φαραω Νεχαω καὶ εἰσήγαγεν αὐτὸν εἰς Αἴγυπτον καὶ ἀπέθανεν ἐκεῖ
καὶ τὸ ἀργύριον καὶ τὸ χρυσίον ἔδωκαν τῷ Φαραω τότε ἤρξατο ἡ γῆ φορολογεῖσθαι τοῦ δοῦναι τὸ ἀργύριον ἐπὶ στόμα Φαραω καὶ ἕκαστος κατὰ δύναμιν ἀπῄτει τὸ ἀργύριον καὶ τὸ χρυσίον παρὰ τοῦ λαοῦ τῆς γῆς δοῦναι τῷ Φαραω Νεχαω

5 ὢν εἴκοσι καὶ πέντε ἐτῶν Ιωακιμ ἐν τῷ βασιλεύειν αὐτὸν καὶ ἕνδεκα ἔτη ἐβασίλευσεν ἐν Ιερουσαλημ καὶ ὄνομα τῆς μητρὸς αὐτοῦ Ζεχωρα θυγάτηρ Νηριου ἐκ Ραμα καὶ ἐποίησεν τὸ πονηρὸν ἐναντίον κυρίου κατὰ πάντα ὅσα ἐποίησαν οἱ πατέρες αὐτοῦ
ἐν ταῖς ἡμέραις αὐτοῦ ἦλθεν Ναβουχοδονοσορ βασιλεὺς Βαβυλῶνος εἰς τὴν γῆν καὶ ἦν αὐτῷ δουλεύων τρία ἔτη καὶ ἀπέστη ἀπ᾽ αὐτοῦ
καὶ ἀπέστειλεν κύριος ἐπ᾽ αὐτοὺς τοὺς Χαλδαίους καὶ λῃστήρια Σύρων καὶ λῃστήρια Μωαβιτῶν καὶ υἱῶν Αμμων καὶ τῆς Σαμαρείας καὶ ἀπέστησαν μετὰ τὸν λόγον τοῦτον κατὰ τὸν λόγον κυρίου ἐν χειρὶ τῶν παίδων αὐτοῦ τῶν προφητῶν
πλὴν θυμὸς κυρίου ἦν ἐπὶ Ιουδαν τοῦ ἀποστῆσαι αὐτὸν ἀπὸ προσώπου αὐτοῦ διὰ τὰς ἁμαρτίας Μανασση ἐν πᾶσιν οἷς ἐποίησεν
καὶ ἐν αἵματι ἀθῴῳ ᾧ ἐξέχεεν Ιωακιμ καὶ ἔπλησεν τὴν Ιερουσαλημ αἵματος ἀθῴου καὶ οὐκ ἠθέλησεν κύριος ἐξολεθρεῦσαι αὐτούς

6 καὶ ἀνέβη ἐπ᾽ αὐτὸν Ναβουχοδονοσορ 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 Ιωακιμ καὶ πάντα ἃ ἐποίησεν οὐκ ἰδοὺ ταῦτα γεγραμμένα ἐπὶ βιβλίῳ λόγων τῶν ἡμερῶν τοῖς βασιλεῦσιν Ιουδα καὶ ἐκοιμήθη Ιωακιμ μετὰ τῶν πατέρων αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐτάφη ἐν Γανοζα μετὰ τῶν πατέρων αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐβασίλευσεν Ιεχονιας υἱὸς αὐτοῦ ἀντ᾽ αὐτοῦ

9 υἱὸς ὀκτωκαίδεκα ἐτῶν Ιεχονιας ἐν τῷ βασιλεύειν αὐτὸν καὶ τρίμηνον καὶ δέκα ἡμέρας ἐβασίλευσεν ἐν Ιερουσαλημ καὶ ἐποίησεν τὸ πονηρὸν ἐνώπιον κυρίου

10 καὶ ἐπιστρέφοντος τοῦ ἐνιαυτοῦ ἀπέστειλεν ὁ βασιλεὺς Ναβουχοδονοσορ καὶ εἰσήνεγκεν αὐτὸν εἰς Βαβυλῶνα μετὰ τῶν σκευῶν τῶν ἐπιθυμητῶν οἴκου κυρίου καὶ ἐβασίλευσεν Σεδεκιαν ἀδελφὸν τοῦ πατρὸς αὐτοῦ ἐπὶ Ιουδαν καὶ Ιερουσαλημ

11 ἐτῶν εἴκοσι ἑνὸς Σεδεκιας ἐν τῷ βασιλεύειν αὐτὸν καὶ ἕνδεκα ἔτη ἐβασίλευσεν ἐν Ιερουσαλημ

12 καὶ ἐποίησεν τὸ πονηρὸν ἐνώπιον κυρίου θεοῦ αὐτοῦ οὐκ ἐνετράπη ἀπὸ προσώπου Ιερεμιου τοῦ προφήτου καὶ ἐκ στόματος κυρίου

13 ἐν τῷ τὰ πρὸς τὸν βασιλέα Ναβουχοδονοσορ ἀθετῆσαι ἃ ὥρκισεν αὐτὸν κατὰ τοῦ θεοῦ καὶ ἐσκλήρυνεν τὸν τράχηλον αὐτοῦ καὶ τὴν καρδίαν αὐτοῦ κατίσχυσεν τοῦ μὴ ἐπιστρέψαι πρὸς κύριον θεὸν Ισραηλ

14 καὶ πάντες οἱ ἔνδοξοι Ιουδα καὶ οἱ ἱερεῖς καὶ ὁ λαὸς τῆς γῆς ἐπλήθυναν τοῦ ἀθετῆσαι ἀθετήματα βδελυγμάτων ἐθνῶν καὶ ἐμίαναν τὸν οἶκον κυρίου τὸν ἐν Ιερουσαλημ

15 καὶ ἐξαπέστειλεν κύριος ὁ θεὸς τῶν πατέρων αὐτῶν ἐν χειρὶ προφητῶν ὀρθρίζων καὶ ἀποστέλλων τοὺς ἀγγέλους αὐτοῦ ὅτι ἦν φειδόμενος τοῦ λαοῦ αὐτοῦ καὶ τοῦ ἁγιάσματος αὐτοῦ

16 καὶ ἦσαν μυκτηρίζοντες τοὺς ἀγγέλους αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐξουδενοῦντες 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 ἀπέκτεινεν τοὺς νεανίσκους αὐτῶν ἐν ῥομφαίᾳ ἐν οἴκῳ ἁγιάσματος αὐτοῦ καὶ οὐκ ἐφείσατο τοῦ Σεδεκιου καὶ τὰς παρθένους αὐτῶν οὐκ ἠλέησαν καὶ τοὺς πρεσβυτέρους αὐτῶν ἀπήγαγον τὰ πάντα παρέδωκεν ἐν χερσὶν αὐτῶν

18 καὶ πάντα τὰ σκεύη οἴκου θεοῦ τὰ μεγάλα καὶ τὰ μικρὰ καὶ τοὺς θησαυροὺς καὶ πάντας τοὺς θησαυροὺς βασιλέως καὶ μεγιστάνων πάντα εἰσήνεγκεν εἰς Βαβυλῶνα

19 καὶ ἐνέπρησεν τὸν οἶκον κυρίου καὶ κατέσκαψεν τὸ τεῖχος Ιερουσαλημ καὶ τὰς βάρεις αὐτῆς ἐνέπρησεν ἐν πυρὶ καὶ πᾶν σκεῦος ὡραῖον εἰς ἀφανισμόν

20 καὶ ἀπῴκισεν τοὺς καταλοίπους εἰς Βαβυλῶνα καὶ ἦσαν αὐτῷ καὶ τοῖς υἱοῖς αὐτοῦ εἰς δούλους ἕως βασιλείας Μήδων

21 τοῦ πληρωθῆναι λόγον κυρίου διὰ στόματος Ιερεμιου ἕως τοῦ προσδέξασθαι τὴν γῆν τὰ σάββατα αὐτῆς σαββατίσαι πάσας τὰς ἡμέρας τῆς ἐρημώσεως αὐτῆς ἐσαββάτισεν εἰς συμπλήρωσιν ἐτῶν ἑβδομήκοντα

22 ἔτους πρώτου Κύρου βασιλέως Περσῶν μετὰ τὸ πληρωθῆναι ῥῆμα κυρίου διὰ στόματος Ιερεμιου ἐξήγειρεν κύριος τὸ πνεῦμα Κύρου βασιλέως Περσῶν καὶ παρήγγειλεν κηρύξαι ἐν πάσῃ τῇ βασιλείᾳ αὐτοῦ ἐν γραπτῷ λέγων

23 τάδε λέγει Κῦρος βασιλεὺς Περσῶν πάσας τὰς βασιλείας τῆς γῆς ἔδωκέν μοι κύριος ὁ θεὸς τοῦ οὐρανοῦ καὶ αὐτὸς ἐνετείλατό μοι οἰκοδομῆσαι αὐτῷ οἶκον ἐν Ιερουσαλημ ἐν τῇ Ιουδαίᾳ τίς ἐξ ὑμῶν ἐκ παντὸς τοῦ λαοῦ αὐτοῦ ἔσται ὁ θεὸς αὐτοῦ μετ᾽ αὐτοῦ καὶ ἀναβήτω

1 Tulit ergo populus terræ Joachaz filium Josiæ, et constituit regem pro patre suo in Jerusalem.

2 Viginti trium annorum erat Joachaz cum regnare cœpisset, et tribus mensibus regnavit in Jerusalem.

3 Amovit autem eum rex Ægypti cum venisset in Jerusalem, et condemnavit terram centum talentis argenti, et talento auri.

4 Constituitque pro eo regem Eliakim fratrem ejus super Judam et Jerusalem, et vertit nomen ejus Joakim: ipsum vero Joachaz tulit secum, et abduxit in Ægyptum.

5 Viginti quinque annorum erat Joakim cum regnare cœpisset, et undecim annis regnavit in Jerusalem: fecitque malum coram Domino Deo suo.

6 Contra hunc ascendit Nabuchodonosor rex Chaldæorum, et vinctum catenis duxit in Babylonem.

7 Ad quam et vasa Domini transtulit, et posuit ea in templo suo.

8 Reliqua autem verborum Joakim, et abominationum ejus quas operatus est, et quæ inventa sunt in eo, continentur in libro regum Juda et Israël. Regnavit autem Joachin filius ejus pro eo.

9 Octo annorum erat Joachin cum regnare cœpisset, et tribus mensibus ac decem diebus regnavit in Jerusalem: fecitque malum in conspectu Domini.

10 Cumque anni circulus volveretur, misit Nabuchodonosor rex, qui adduxerunt eum in Babylonem, asportatis simul pretiosissimis vasis domus Domini. Regem vero constituit Sedeciam patruum ejus super Judam et Jerusalem.

11 Viginti et unius anni erat Sedecias cum regnare cœpisset, et undecim annis regnavit in Jerusalem:

12 fecitque malum in oculis Domini Dei sui, nec erubuit faciem Jeremiæ prophetæ, loquentis ad se ex ore Domini.

13 A rege quoque Nabuchodonosor recessit, qui adjuraverat eum per Deum: et induravit cervicem suam et cor ut non reverteretur ad Dominum Deum Israël.

14 Sed et universi principes sacerdotum et populus prævaricati sunt inique juxta universas abominationes gentium, et polluerunt domum Domini quam sanctificaverat sibi in Jerusalem.

15 Mittebat autem Dominus Deus patrum suorum ad illos per manum nuntiorum suorum de nocte consurgens, et quotidie commonens: eo quod parceret populo et habitaculo suo.

16 At illi subsannabant nuntios Dei, et parvipendebant sermones ejus, illudebantque prophetis, donec ascenderet furor Domini in populum ejus, et esset nulla curatio.

17 Adduxit enim super eos regem Chaldæorum, et interfecit juvenes eorum gladio in domo sanctuarii sui: non est misertus adolescentis, et virginis, et senis, nec decrepiti quidem, sed omnes tradidit in manibus ejus.

18 Universaque vasa domus Domini, tam majora quam minora, et thesauros templi, et regis, et principum, transtulit in Babylonem.

19 Incenderunt hostes domum Dei, destruxeruntque murum Jerusalem: universas turres combusserunt, et quidquid pretiosum fuerat, demoliti sunt.

20 Si quis evaserat gladium, ductus in Babylonem servivit regi et filiis ejus, donec imperaret rex Persarum,

21 et compleretur sermo Domini ex ore Jeremiæ, et celebraret terra sabbata sua: cunctis enim diebus desolationis egit sabbatum usque dum complerentur septuaginta anni.

22 Anno autem primo Cyri regis Persarum, ad explendum sermonem Domini quem locutus fuerat per os Jeremiæ, suscitavit Dominus spiritum Cyri regis Persarum: qui jussit prædicari in universo regno suo, etiam per scripturam, dicens:

23 Hæc dicit Cyrus rex Persarum: Omnia regna terræ dedit mihi Dominus Deus cæli, et ipse præcepit mihi ut ædificarem ei domum in Jerusalem, quæ est in Judæa: quis ex vobis est in omni populo ejus? sit Dominus Deis suus cum eo, et ascendat.
