1 Kings 22


1  And they continued3427 three7969 years8141 without369 war4421 between996 Syria758 and Israel.3478

2  And it came to pass1961 in the third7992 year,8141 that Jehoshaphat3092 the king4428 of Judah3063 came down3381 to413 the king4428 of Israel.3478

3  And the king4428 of Israel3478 said559 unto413 his servants,5650 Know3045 ye that3588 Ramoth in Gilead7433 is ours, and we587 be still,2814 and take4480 3947 it not out of the hand4480 3027 of the king4428 of Syria?758

4  And he said559 unto413 Jehoshaphat,3092 Wilt thou go1980 with854 me to battle4421 to Ramoth-gilead?7433 And Jehoshaphat3092 said559 to413 the king4428 of Israel,3478 I am as thou art, my people5971 as thy people,5971 my horses5483 as thy horses.5483

5  And Jehoshaphat3092 said559 unto413 the king4428 of Israel,3478 Inquire,1875 I pray thee,4994 at 853 the word1697 of the LORD3068 today.3117

6  Then the king4428 of Israel3478 gathered the prophets together,6908 853 5030 about four702 hundred3967 men,376 and said559 unto413 them, Shall I go1980 against5921 Ramoth-gilead7433 to battle,4421 or518 shall I forbear?2308 And they said,559 Go up;5927 for the Lord136 shall deliver5414 it into the hand3027 of the king.4428

7  And Jehoshaphat3092 said,559 Is there not369 here6311 a prophet5030 of the LORD3068 besides,5750 that we might inquire1875 of4480 854 him?

8  And the king4428 of Israel3478 said559 unto413 Jehoshaphat,3092 There is yet5750 one259 man,376 Micaiah4321 the son1121 of Imlah,3229 by4480 854 whom we may inquire1875 of 853 the LORD:3068 but I589 hate8130 him; for3588 he doth not3808 prophesy5012 good2896 concerning5921 me, but3588 518 evil.7451 And Jehoshaphat3092 said,559 Let not408 the king4428 say559 so.3651

9  Then the king4428 of Israel3478 called7121 413 an259 officer,5631 and said,559 Hasten4116 hither Micaiah4321 the son1121 of Imlah.3229

10  And the king4428 of Israel3478 and Jehoshaphat3092 the king4428 of Judah3063 sat3427 each376 on5921 his throne,3678 having put on3847 their robes,899 in a void place1637 in the entrance6607 of the gate8179 of Samaria;8111 and all3605 the prophets5030 prophesied5012 before6440 them.

11  And Zedekiah6667 the son1121 of Chenaanah3668 made6213 him horns7161 of iron:1270 and he said,559 Thus3541 saith559 the LORD,3068 With these428 shalt thou push5055 853 the Syrians,758 until5704 thou have consumed3615 them.

12  And all3605 the prophets5030 prophesied5012 so,3651 saying,559 Go up5927 to Ramoth-gilead,7433 and prosper:6743 for the LORD3068 shall deliver5414 it into the king's4428 hand.3027

13  And the messenger4397 that834 was gone1980 to call7121 Micaiah4321 spoke1696 unto413 him, saying,559 Behold2009 now,4994 the words1697 of the prophets5030 declare good2896 unto413 the king4428 with one259 mouth:6310 let thy word,1697 I pray thee,4994 be1961 like the word1697 of one259 of them,4480 and speak1696 that which is good.2896

14  And Micaiah4321 said,559 As the LORD3068 liveth,2416 what834 the LORD3068 saith559 unto413 me, that will I speak.1696

15  So he came935 to413 the king.4428 And the king4428 said559 unto413 him, Micaiah,4321 shall we go1980 against413 Ramoth-gilead7433 to battle,4421 or518 shall we forbear?2308 And he answered559 413 him, Go,5927 and prosper:6743 for the LORD3068 shall deliver5414 it into the hand3027 of the king.4428

16  And the king4428 said559 unto413 him, How5704 many4100 times6471 shall I589 adjure7650 thee that834 thou tell1696 413 me nothing3808 but7535 that which is true571 in the name8034 of the LORD?3068

17  And he said,559 I saw7200 853 all3605 Israel3478 scattered6327 upon413 the hills,2022 as sheep6629 that834 have not369 a shepherd:7462 and the LORD3068 said,559 These428 have no3808 master:113 let them return7725 every man376 to his house1004 in peace.7965

18  And the king4428 of Israel3478 said559 unto413 Jehoshaphat,3092 Did I not3808 tell559 413 thee that he would prophesy5012 no3808 good2896 concerning5921 me, but3588 518 evil?7451

19  And he said,559 Hear8085 thou therefore3651 the word1697 of the LORD:3068 I saw7200 853 the LORD3068 sitting3427 on5921 his throne,3678 and all3605 the host6635 of heaven8064 standing5975 by5921 him on his right hand4480 3225 and on his left.4480 8040

20  And the LORD3068 said,559 Who4310 shall persuade6601 853 Ahab,256 that he may go up5927 and fall5307 at Ramoth-gilead?7433 And one2088 said559 on this manner,3541 and another2088 said559 on that manner.3541

21  And there came forth3318 a spirit,7307 and stood5975 before6440 the LORD,3068 and said,559 I589 will persuade6601 him.

22  And the LORD3068 said559 unto413 him, Wherewith?4100 And he said,559 I will go forth,3318 and I will be1961 a lying8267 spirit7307 in the mouth6310 of all3605 his prophets.5030 And he said,559 Thou shalt persuade6601 him, and prevail3201 also:1571 go forth,3318 and do6213 so.3651

23  Now6258 therefore, behold,2009 the LORD3068 hath put5414 a lying8267 spirit7307 in the mouth6310 of all3605 these428 thy prophets,5030 and the LORD3068 hath spoken1696 evil7451 concerning5921 thee.

24  But Zedekiah6667 the son1121 of Chenaanah3668 went near,5066 and smote5221 853 Micaiah4321 on5921 the cheek,3895 and said,559 Which335 way2088 went5674 the Spirit7307 of the LORD3068 from4480 854 me to speak1696 unto854 thee?

25  And Micaiah4321 said,559 Behold,2009 thou shalt see7200 in that1931 day,3117 when834 thou shalt go into935 an inner2315 chamber2315 to hide thyself.2247

26  And the king4428 of Israel3478 said,559 Take3947 853 Micaiah,4321 and carry him back7725 unto413 Amon526 the governor8269 of the city,5892 and to413 Joash3101 the king's4428 son;1121

27  And say,559 Thus3541 saith559 the king,4428 Put7760 853 this2088 fellow in the prison,1004 3608 and feed398 him with bread3899 of affliction3906 and with water4325 of affliction,3906 until5704 I come935 in peace.7965

28  And Micaiah4321 said,559 If518 thou return at all7725 7725 in peace,7965 the LORD3068 hath not3808 spoken1696 by me. And he said,559 Hearken,8085 O people,5971 every3605 one of you.

29  So the king4428 of Israel3478 and Jehoshaphat3092 the king4428 of Judah3063 went up5927 to Ramoth-gilead.7433

30  And the king4428 of Israel3478 said559 unto413 Jehoshaphat,3092 I will disguise myself,2664 and enter935 into the battle;4421 but put3847 thou859 on thy robes.899 And the king4428 of Israel3478 disguised himself,2664 and went935 into the battle.4421

31  But the king4428 of Syria758 commanded6680 853 his834 thirty7970 and two8147 captains that had rule over8269 his834 chariots,7393 saying,559 Fight3898 neither3808 with854 small6996 nor great,1419 save3588 518 only905 with854 the king4428 of Israel.3478

32  And it came to pass,1961 when the captains8269 of the chariots7393 saw7200 853 Jehoshaphat,3092 that they1992 said,559 Surely389 it1931 is the king4428 of Israel.3478 And they turned aside5493 to fight3898 against5921 him: and Jehoshaphat3092 cried out.2199

33  And it came to pass,1961 when the captains8269 of the chariots7393 perceived7200 that3588 it1931 was not3808 the king4428 of Israel,3478 that they turned back7725 from pursuing4480 310 him.

34  And a certain man376 drew4900 a bow7198 at a venture,8537 and smote5221 853 the king4428 of Israel3478 between996 the joints1694 of the harness:8302 wherefore he said559 unto the driver of his chariot,7395 Turn2015 thine hand,3027 and carry me out3318 of4480 the host;4264 for3588 I am wounded.2470

35  And the battle4421 increased5927 that1931 day:3117 and the king4428 was1961 stayed up5975 in his chariot4818 against5227 the Syrians,758 and died4191 at even:6153 and the blood1818 ran out3332 of the wound4347 into413 the midst2436 of the chariot.7393

36  And there went5674 a proclamation7440 throughout the host4264 about the going down935 of the sun,8121 saying,559 Every man376 to413 his city,5892 and every man376 to413 his own country.776

37  So the king4428 died,4191 and was brought935 to Samaria;8111 and they buried6912 853 the king4428 in Samaria.8111

38  And one washed7857 853 the chariot7393 in5921 the pool1295 of Samaria;8111 and the dogs3611 licked up3952 853 his blood;1818 and they washed7364 his armor;2185 according unto the word1697 of the LORD3068 which834 he spoke.1696

39  Now the rest3499 of the acts1697 of Ahab,256 and all3605 that834 he did,6213 and the ivory8127 house1004 which834 he made,1129 and all3605 the cities5892 that834 he built,1129 are they1992 not3808 written3789 in5921 the book5612 of the chronicles1697 3117 of the kings4428 of Israel?3478

40  So Ahab256 slept7901 with5973 his fathers;1 and Ahaziah274 his son1121 reigned4427 in his stead.8478

41  And Jehoshaphat3092 the son1121 of Asa609 began to reign4427 over5921 Judah3063 in the fourth702 year8141 of Ahab256 king4428 of Israel.3478

42  Jehoshaphat3092 was thirty7970 and five2568 years8141 old1121 when he began to reign;4427 and he reigned4427 twenty6242 and five2568 years8141 in Jerusalem.3389 And his mother's517 name8034 was Azubah5806 the daughter1323 of Shilhi.7977

43  And he walked1980 in all3605 the ways1870 of Asa609 his father;1 he turned not aside3808 5493 from4480 it, doing6213 that which was right3477 in the eyes5869 of the LORD:3068 nevertheless389 the high places1116 were not3808 taken away;5493 for the people5971 offered2076 and burnt incense6999 yet5750 in the high places.1116

44  And Jehoshaphat3092 made peace7999 with5973 the king4428 of Israel.3478

45  Now the rest3499 of the acts1697 of Jehoshaphat,3092 and his might1369 that834 he showed,6213 and how834 he warred,3898 are they1992 not3808 written3789 in5921 the book5612 of the chronicles1697 3117 of the kings4428 of Judah?3063

46  And the remnant3499 of the sodomites,6945 which834 remained7604 in the days3117 of his father1 Asa,609 he took1197 out of4480 the land.776

47  There was then no369 king4428 in Edom:123 a deputy5324 was king.4428

48  Jehoshaphat3092 made6213 ships591 of Tharshish8659 to go1980 to Ophir211 for gold:2091 but they went1980 not;3808 for3588 the ships591 were broken7665 at Ezion-geber.6100

49  Then227 said559 Ahaziah274 the son1121 of Ahab256 unto413 Jehoshaphat,3092 Let my servants5650 go1980 with5973 thy servants5650 in the ships.591 But Jehoshaphat3092 would14 not.3808

50  And Jehoshaphat3092 slept7901 with5973 his fathers,1 and was buried6912 with5973 his fathers1 in the city5892 of David1732 his father:1 and Jehoram3088 his son1121 reigned4427 in his stead.8478

51  Ahaziah274 the son1121 of Ahab256 began to reign4427 over5921 Israel3478 in Samaria8111 the seventeenth7651 6240 year8141 of Jehoshaphat3092 king4428 of Judah,3063 and reigned4427 two years8141 over5921 Israel.3478

52  And he did6213 evil7451 in the sight5869 of the LORD,3068 and walked1980 in the way1870 of his father,1 and in the way1870 of his mother,517 and in the way1870 of Jeroboam3379 the son1121 of Nebat,5028 who834 made Israel to sin:2398 853 3478

53  For he served5647 853 Baal,1168 and worshiped7812 him, and provoked to anger3707 853 the LORD3068 God430 of Israel,3478 according to all3605 that834 his father1 had done.6213


1 καὶ ἐκάθισεν τρία ἔτη καὶ οὐκ ἦν πόλεμος ἀνὰ μέσον Συρίας καὶ ἀνὰ μέσον Ισραηλ

2 καὶ ἐγενήθη ἐν τῷ ἐνιαυτῷ τῷ τρίτῳ καὶ κατέβη Ιωσαφατ βασιλεὺς Ιουδα πρὸς βασιλέα Ισραηλ

3 καὶ εἶπεν βασιλεὺς Ισραηλ πρὸς τοὺς παῖδας αὐτοῦ εἰ οἴδατε ὅτι ἡμῖν Ρεμμαθ Γαλααδ καὶ ἡμεῖς σιωπῶμεν λαβεῖν αὐτὴν ἐκ χειρὸς βασιλέως Συρίας

4 καὶ εἶπεν βασιλεὺς Ισραηλ πρὸς Ιωσαφατ ἀναβήσῃ μεθ᾽ ἡμῶν εἰς Ρεμμαθ Γαλααδ εἰς πόλεμον καὶ εἶπεν Ιωσαφατ καθὼς ἐγὼ οὕτως καὶ σύ καθὼς ὁ λαός μου ὁ λαός σου καθὼς οἱ ἵπποι μου οἱ ἵπποι σου

5 καὶ εἶπεν Ιωσαφατ βασιλεὺς Ιουδα πρὸς βασιλέα Ισραηλ ἐπερωτήσατε δὴ σήμερον τὸν κύριον

6 καὶ συνήθροισεν ὁ βασιλεὺς Ισραηλ πάντας τοὺς προφήτας ὡς τετρακοσίους ἄνδρας καὶ εἶπεν αὐτοῖς ὁ βασιλεύς εἰ πορευθῶ εἰς Ρεμμαθ Γαλααδ εἰς πόλεμον ἢ ἐπίσχω καὶ εἶπαν ἀνάβαινε καὶ διδοὺς δώσει κύριος εἰς χεῖρας τοῦ βασιλέως

7 καὶ εἶπεν Ιωσαφατ πρὸς βασιλέα Ισραηλ οὐκ ἔστιν ὧδε προφήτης τοῦ κυρίου καὶ ἐπερωτήσομεν τὸν κύριον δι᾽ αὐτοῦ

8 καὶ εἶπεν ὁ βασιλεὺς Ισραηλ πρὸς Ιωσαφατ ἔτι ἔστιν ἀνὴρ εἷς τοῦ ἐπερωτῆσαι τὸν κύριον δι᾽ αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐγὼ μεμίσηκα αὐτόν ὅτι οὐ λαλεῖ περὶ ἐμοῦ καλά ἀλλ᾽ ἢ κακά Μιχαιας υἱὸς Ιεμλα καὶ εἶπεν Ιωσαφατ βασιλεὺς Ιουδα μὴ λεγέτω ὁ βασιλεὺς οὕτως

9 καὶ ἐκάλεσεν ὁ βασιλεὺς Ισραηλ εὐνοῦχον ἕνα καὶ εἶπεν τάχος Μιχαιαν υἱὸν Ιεμλα

10 καὶ ὁ βασιλεὺς Ισραηλ καὶ Ιωσαφατ βασιλεὺς Ιουδα ἐκάθηντο ἀνὴρ ἐπὶ τοῦ θρόνου αὐτοῦ ἔνοπλοι ἐν ταῖς πύλαις Σαμαρείας καὶ πάντες οἱ προφῆται ἐπροφήτευον ἐνώπιον αὐτῶν

11 καὶ ἐποίησεν ἑαυτῷ Σεδεκιας υἱὸς Χανανα κέρατα σιδηρᾶ καὶ εἶπεν τάδε λέγει κύριος ἐν τούτοις κερατιεῖς τὴν Συρίαν ἕως συντελεσθῇ

12 καὶ πάντες οἱ προφῆται ἐπροφήτευον οὕτως λέγοντες ἀνάβαινε εἰς Ρεμμαθ Γαλααδ καὶ εὐοδώσει καὶ δώσει κύριος εἰς χεῖράς σου καὶ τὸν βασιλέα Συρίας

13 καὶ ὁ ἄγγελος ὁ πορευθεὶς καλέσαι τὸν Μιχαιαν ἐλάλησεν αὐτῷ λέγων ἰδοὺ δὴ λαλοῦσιν πάντες οἱ προφῆται ἐν στόματι ἑνὶ καλὰ περὶ τοῦ βασιλέως γίνου δὴ καὶ σὺ εἰς λόγους σου κατὰ τοὺς λόγους ἑνὸς τούτων καὶ λάλησον καλά

14 καὶ εἶπεν Μιχαιας ζῇ κύριος ὅτι ἃ ἂν εἴπῃ κύριος πρός με ταῦτα λαλήσω

15 καὶ ἦλθεν πρὸς τὸν βασιλέα καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῷ ὁ βασιλεύς Μιχαια εἰ ἀναβῶ εἰς Ρεμμαθ Γαλααδ εἰς πόλεμον ἢ ἐπίσχω καὶ εἶπεν ἀνάβαινε καὶ εὐοδώσει καὶ δώσει κύριος εἰς χεῖρα τοῦ βασιλέως

16 καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῷ ὁ βασιλεύς ποσάκις ἐγὼ ὁρκίζω σε ὅπως λαλήσῃς πρός με ἀλήθειαν ἐν ὀνόματι κυρίου

17 καὶ εἶπεν Μιχαιας οὐχ οὕτως ἑώρακα πάντα τὸν Ισραηλ διεσπαρμένον ἐν τοῖς ὄρεσιν ὡς ποίμνιον ᾧ οὐκ ἔστιν ποιμήν καὶ εἶπεν κύριος οὐ κύριος τούτοις ἀναστρεφέτω ἕκαστος εἰς τὸν οἶκον αὐτοῦ ἐν εἰρήνῃ

18 καὶ εἶπεν βασιλεὺς Ισραηλ πρὸς Ιωσαφατ βασιλέα Ιουδα οὐκ εἶπα πρὸς σέ οὐ προφητεύει οὗτός μοι καλά διότι ἀλλ᾽ ἢ κακά

19 καὶ εἶπεν Μιχαιας οὐχ οὕτως οὐκ ἐγώ ἄκουε ῥῆμα κυρίου οὐχ οὕτως εἶδον τὸν κύριον θεὸν Ισραηλ καθήμενον ἐπὶ θρόνου αὐτοῦ καὶ πᾶσα ἡ στρατιὰ τοῦ οὐρανοῦ εἱστήκει περὶ αὐτὸν ἐκ δεξιῶν αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐξ εὐωνύμων αὐτοῦ

20 καὶ εἶπεν κύριος τίς ἀπατήσει τὸν Αχααβ βασιλέα Ισραηλ καὶ ἀναβήσεται καὶ πεσεῖται ἐν Ρεμμαθ Γαλααδ καὶ εἶπεν οὗτος οὕτως καὶ οὗτος οὕτως

21 καὶ ἐξῆλθεν πνεῦμα καὶ ἔστη ἐνώπιον κυρίου καὶ εἶπεν ἐγὼ ἀπατήσω αὐτόν καὶ εἶπεν πρὸς αὐτὸν κύριος ἐν τίνι

22 καὶ εἶπεν ἐξελεύσομαι καὶ ἔσομαι πνεῦμα ψευδὲς ἐν στόματι πάντων τῶν προφητῶν αὐτοῦ καὶ εἶπεν ἀπατήσεις καί γε δυνήσει ἔξελθε καὶ ποίησον οὕτως

23 καὶ νῦν ἰδοὺ ἔδωκεν κύριος πνεῦμα ψευδὲς ἐν στόματι πάντων τῶν προφητῶν σου τούτων καὶ κύριος ἐλάλησεν ἐπὶ σὲ κακά

24 καὶ προσῆλθεν Σεδεκιου υἱὸς Χανανα καὶ ἐπάταξεν τὸν Μιχαιαν ἐπὶ τὴν σιαγόνα καὶ εἶπεν ποῖον πνεῦμα κυρίου τὸ λαλῆσαν ἐν σοί

25 καὶ εἶπεν Μιχαιας ἰδοὺ σὺ ὄψῃ ἐν τῇ ἡμέρᾳ ἐκείνῃ ὅταν εἰσέλθῃς ταμίειον τοῦ ταμιείου τοῦ κρυβῆναι

26 καὶ εἶπεν ὁ βασιλεὺς Ισραηλ λάβετε τὸν Μιχαιαν καὶ ἀποστρέψατε αὐτὸν πρὸς Εμηρ τὸν ἄρχοντα τῆς πόλεως καὶ τῷ Ιωας υἱῷ τοῦ βασιλέως

27 εἰπὸν θέσθαι τοῦτον ἐν φυλακῇ καὶ ἐσθίειν αὐτὸν ἄρτον θλίψεως καὶ ὕδωρ θλίψεως ἕως τοῦ ἐπιστρέψαι με ἐν εἰρήνῃ

28 καὶ εἶπεν Μιχαιας ἐὰν ἐπιστρέφων ἐπιστρέψῃς ἐν εἰρήνῃ οὐκ ἐλάλησεν κύριος ἐν ἐμοί

29 καὶ ἀνέβη βασιλεὺς Ισραηλ καὶ Ιωσαφατ βασιλεὺς Ιουδα μετ᾽ αὐτοῦ εἰς Ρεμμαθ Γαλααδ

30 καὶ εἶπεν βασιλεὺς Ισραηλ πρὸς Ιωσαφατ βασιλέα Ιουδα συγκαλύψομαι καὶ εἰσελεύσομαι εἰς τὸν πόλεμον καὶ σὺ ἔνδυσαι τὸν ἱματισμόν μου καὶ συνεκαλύψατο ὁ βασιλεὺς Ισραηλ καὶ εἰσῆλθεν εἰς τὸν πόλεμον

31 καὶ βασιλεὺς Συρίας ἐνετείλατο τοῖς ἄρχουσι τῶν ἁρμάτων αὐτοῦ τριάκοντα καὶ δυσὶν λέγων μὴ πολεμεῖτε μικρὸν καὶ μέγαν ἀλλ᾽ ἢ τὸν βασιλέα Ισραηλ μονώτατον

32 καὶ ἐγένετο ὡς εἶδον οἱ ἄρχοντες τῶν ἁρμάτων τὸν Ιωσαφατ βασιλέα Ιουδα καὶ αὐτοὶ εἶπον φαίνεται βασιλεὺς Ισραηλ οὗτος καὶ ἐκύκλωσαν αὐτὸν πολεμῆσαι καὶ ἀνέκραξεν Ιωσαφατ

33 καὶ ἐγένετο ὡς εἶδον οἱ ἄρχοντες τῶν ἁρμάτων ὅτι οὐκ ἔστιν βασιλεὺς Ισραηλ οὗτος καὶ ἀπέστρεψαν ἀπ᾽ αὐτοῦ

34 καὶ ἐνέτεινεν εἷς τὸ τόξον εὐστόχως καὶ ἐπάταξεν τὸν βασιλέα Ισραηλ ἀνὰ μέσον τοῦ πνεύμονος καὶ ἀνὰ μέσον τοῦ θώρακος καὶ εἶπεν τῷ ἡνιόχῳ αὐτοῦ ἐπίστρεψον τὰς χεῖράς σου καὶ ἐξάγαγέ με ἐκ τοῦ πολέμου ὅτι τέτρωμαι

35 καὶ ἐτροπώθη ὁ πόλεμος ἐν τῇ ἡμέρᾳ ἐκείνῃ καὶ ὁ βασιλεὺς ἦν ἑστηκὼς ἐπὶ τοῦ ἅρματος ἐξ ἐναντίας Συρίας ἀπὸ πρωὶ ἕως ἑσπέρας καὶ ἀπέχυννε τὸ αἷμα ἐκ τῆς πληγῆς εἰς τὸν κόλπον τοῦ ἅρματος καὶ ἀπέθανεν ἑσπέρας καὶ ἐξεπορεύετο τὸ αἷμα τῆς τροπῆς ἕως τοῦ κόλπου τοῦ ἅρματος

36 καὶ ἔστη ὁ στρατοκῆρυξ δύνοντος τοῦ ἡλίου λέγων ἕκαστος εἰς τὴν ἑαυτοῦ πόλιν καὶ εἰς τὴν ἑαυτοῦ γῆν

37 ὅτι τέθνηκεν ὁ βασιλεύς καὶ ἦλθον εἰς Σαμάρειαν καὶ ἔθαψαν τὸν βασιλέα ἐν Σαμαρείᾳ

38 καὶ ἀπένιψαν τὸ ἅρμα ἐπὶ τὴν κρήνην Σαμαρείας καὶ ἐξέλειξαν αἱ ὕες καὶ οἱ κύνες τὸ αἷμα καὶ αἱ πόρναι ἐλούσαντο ἐν τῷ αἵματι κατὰ τὸ ῥῆμα κυρίου ὃ ἐλάλησεν

41 καὶ Ιωσαφατ υἱὸς Ασα ἐβασίλευσεν ἐπὶ Ιουδα ἔτει τετάρτῳ τῷ Αχααβ βασιλέως Ισραηλ ἐβασίλευσεν

42 Ιωσαφατ υἱὸς τριάκοντα καὶ πέντε ἐτῶν ἐν τῷ βασιλεύειν αὐτὸν καὶ εἴκοσι καὶ πέντε ἔτη ἐβασίλευσεν ἐν Ιερουσαλημ καὶ ὄνομα τῇ μητρὶ αὐτοῦ Αζουβα θυγάτηρ Σελεϊ

43 καὶ ἐπορεύθη ἐν πάσῃ ὁδῷ Ασα τοῦ πατρὸς αὐτοῦ οὐκ ἐξέκλινεν ἀπ᾽ αὐτῆς τοῦ ποιῆσαι τὸ εὐθὲς ἐν ὀφθαλμοῖς κυρίου

44 πλὴν τῶν ὑψηλῶν οὐκ ἐξῆρεν ἔτι ὁ λαὸς ἐθυσίαζεν καὶ ἐθυμίων ἐν τοῖς ὑψηλοῖς

45 καὶ εἰρήνευσεν Ιωσαφατ μετὰ βασιλέως Ισραηλ

46 καὶ τὰ λοιπὰ τῶν λόγων Ιωσαφατ καὶ αἱ δυναστεῖαι αὐτοῦ ὅσα ἐποίησεν οὐκ ἰδοὺ ταῦτα γεγραμμένα ἐν βιβλίῳ λόγων τῶν ἡμερῶν τῶν βασιλέων Ιουδα

51 καὶ ἐκοιμήθη Ιωσαφατ μετὰ τῶν πατέρων αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐτάφη παρὰ τοῖς πατράσιν αὐτοῦ ἐν πόλει Δαυιδ τοῦ πατρὸς αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐβασίλευσεν Ιωραμ υἱὸς αὐτοῦ ἀντ᾽ αὐτοῦ

52 καὶ Οχοζιας υἱὸς Αχααβ ἐβασίλευσεν ἐπὶ Ισραηλ ἐν Σαμαρείᾳ ἐν ἔτει ἑπτακαιδεκάτῳ Ιωσαφατ βασιλεῖ Ιουδα καὶ ἐβασίλευσεν ἐν Ισραηλ ἔτη δύο

53 καὶ ἐποίησεν τὸ πονηρὸν ἐναντίον κυρίου καὶ ἐπορεύθη ἐν ὁδῷ Αχααβ τοῦ πατρὸς αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐν ὁδῷ Ιεζαβελ τῆς μητρὸς αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐν ταῖς ἁμαρτίαις οἴκου Ιεροβοαμ υἱοῦ Ναβατ ὃς ἐξήμαρτεν τὸν Ισραηλ

54 καὶ ἐδούλευσεν τοῖς Βααλιμ καὶ προσεκύνησεν αὐτοῖς καὶ παρώργισεν τὸν κύριον θεὸν Ισραηλ κατὰ πάντα τὰ γενόμενα ἔμπροσθεν αὐτοῦ

1 Transierunt igitur tres anni absque bello inter Syriam et Israël.

2 In anno autem tertio, descendit Josaphat rex Juda ad regem Israël.

3 (Dixitque rex Israël ad servos suos: Ignoratis quod nostra sit Ramoth Galaad, et negligimus tollere eam de manu regis Syriæ?)

4 Et ait ad Josaphat: Veniesne mecum ad præliandum in Ramoth Galaad?

5 Dixitque Josaphat ad regem Israël: Sicut ego sum, ita et tu: populus meus et populus tuus unum sunt: et equites mei, equites tui. Dixitque Josaphat ad regem Israël: Quære, oro te, hodie sermonem Domini.

6 Congregavit ergo rex Israël prophetas, quadringentos circiter viros, et ait ad eos: Ire debeo in Ramoth Galaad ad bellandum, an quiescere? Qui responderunt: Ascende, et dabit eam Dominus in manu regis.

7 Dixit autem Josaphat: Non est hic propheta Domini quispiam, ut interrogemus per eum?

8 Et ait rex Israël ad Josaphat: Remansit vir unus per quem possumus interrogare Dominum: sed ego odi eum, quia non prophetat mihi bonum, sed malum: Michæas filius Jemla. Cui Josaphat ait: Ne loquaris ita, rex.

9 Vocavit ergo rex Israël eunuchum quemdam, et dixit ei: Festina adducere Michæam filium Jemla.

10 Rex autem Israël, et Josaphat rex Juda, sedebant unusquisque in solio suo, vestiti cultu regio, in area juxta ostium portæ Samariæ: et universi prophetæ prophetabant in conspectu eorum.

11 Fecit quoque sibi Sedecias filius Chanaana cornua ferrea, et ait: Hæc dicit Dominus: His ventilabis Syriam, donec deleas eam.

12 Omnesque prophetæ similiter prophetabant, dicentes: Ascende in Ramoth Galaad, et vade prospere, et tradet Dominus in manus regis.

13 Nuntius vero qui ierat ut vocaret Michæam, locutus est ad eum, dicens: Ecce sermones prophetarum ore uno regi bona prædicant: sit ergo sermo tuus similis eorum, et loquere bona.

14 Cui Michæas ait: Vivit Dominus, quia quodcumque dixerit mihi Dominus, hoc loquar.

15 Venit itaque ad regem, et ait illi rex: Michæa, ire debemus in Ramoth Galaad ad præliandum, an cessare? Cui ille respondit: Ascende, et vade prospere, et tradet eam Dominus in manus regis.

16 Dixit autem rex ad eum: Iterum atque iterum adjuro te, ut non loquaris mihi nisi quod verum est, in nomine Domini.

17 Et ille ait: Vidi cunctum Israël dispersum in montibus, quasi oves non habentes pastorem. Et ait Dominus: Non habent isti dominum: revertatur unusquisque in domum suam in pace.

18 (Dixit ergo rex Israël ad Josaphat: Numquid non dixi tibi, quia non prophetat mihi bonum, sed semper malum?)

19 Ille vero addens, ait: Propterea audi sermonem Domini: vidi Dominum sedentem super solium suum, et omnem exercitum cæli assistentem ei a dextris et a sinistris:

20 et ait Dominus: Quis decipiet Achab regem Israël, ut ascendat, et cadat in Ramoth Galaad? Et dixit unus verba hujuscemodi, et alius aliter.

21 Egressus est autem spiritus, et stetit coram Domino, et ait: Ego decipiam illum. Cui locutus est Dominus: In quo?

22 Et ille ait: Egrediar, et ero spiritus mendax in ore omnium prophetarum ejus. Et dixit Dominus: Decipies, et prævalebis: egredere, et fac ita.

23 Nunc igitur ecce dedit Dominus spiritum mendacii in ore omnium prophetarum tuorum, qui hic sunt, et Dominus locutus est contra te malum.

24 Accessit autem Sedecias filius Chanaana, et percussit Michæam in maxillam, et dixit: Mene ergo dimisit spiritus Domini, et locutus est tibi?

25 Et ait Michæas: Visurus es in die illa quando ingredieris cubiculum intra cubiculum ut abscondaris.

26 Et ait rex Israël: Tollite Michæam, et maneat apud Amon principem civitatis, et apud Joas filium Amelech,

27 et dicite eis: Hæc dicit rex: Mittite virum istum in carcerem, et sustentate eum pane tribulationis, et aqua angustiæ, donec revertar in pace.

28 Dixitque Michæas: Si reversus fueris in pace, non est locutus in me Dominus. Et ait: Audite, populi omnes.

29 Ascendit itaque rex Israël, et Josaphat rex Juda, in Ramoth Galaad.

30 Dixit itaque rex Israël ad Josaphat: Sume arma, et ingredere prælium, et induere vestibus tuis. Porro rex Israël mutavit habitum suum, et ingressus est bellum.

31 Rex autem Syriæ præceperat principibus curruum triginta duobus, dicens: Non pugnabitis contra minorem et majorem quempiam, nisi contra regem Israël solum.

32 Cum ergo vidissent principes curruum Josaphat, suspicati sunt quod ipse esset rex Israël, et impetu facto pugnabant contra eum: et exclamavit Josaphat.

33 Intellexeruntque principes curruum quod non esset rex Israël, et cessaverunt ab eo.

34 Vir autem quidam tetendit arcum, in incertum sagittam dirigens, et casu percussit regem Israël inter pulmonem et stomachum. At ille dixit aurigæ suo: Verte manum tuam, et ejice me de exercitu, quia graviter vulneratus sum.

35 Commissum est ergo prælium in die illa, et rex Israël stabat in curru suo contra Syros, et mortuus est vespere: fluebat autem sanguis plagæ in sinum currus,

36 et præco insonuit in universo exercitu antequam sol occumberet, dicens: Unusquisque revertatur in civitatem, et in terram suam.

37 Mortuus est autem rex, et perlatus est in Samariam: sepelieruntque regem in Samaria,

38 et laverunt currum ejus in piscina Samariæ: et linxerunt canes sanguinem ejus, et habenas laverunt, juxta verbum Domini quod locutus fuerat.

39 Reliqua autem sermonum Achab, et universa quæ fecit, et domus eburnea quam ædificavit, cunctarumque urbium quas exstruxit, nonne hæc scripta sunt in libro sermonum dierum regum Israël?

40 Dormivit ergo Achab cum patribus suis, et regnavit Ochozias filius ejus pro eo.

41 Josaphat vero filius Asa regnare cœperat super Judam anno quarto Achab regis Israël.

42 Triginta quinque annorum erat cum regnare cœpisset, et viginti quinque annis regnavit in Jerusalem: nomen matris ejus Azuba filia Salai.

43 Et ambulavit in omni via Asa patris sui, et non declinavit ex ea: fecitque quod rectum erat in conspectu Domini.

44 Verumtamen excelsa non abstulit: adhuc enim populus sacrificabat, et adolebat incensum in excelsis.

45 Pacemque habuit Josaphat cum rege Israël.

46 Reliqua autem verborum Josaphat, et opera ejus quæ gessit, et prælia, nonne hæc scripta sunt in libro verborum dierum regum Juda?

47 Sed et reliquias effeminatorum qui remanserant in diebus Asa patris ejus, abstulit de terra.

48 Nec erat tunc rex constitutus in Edom.

49 Rex vero Josaphat fecerat classes in mari, quæ navigarent in Ophir propter aurum: et ire non potuerunt, quia confractæ sunt in Asiongaber.

50 Tunc ait Ochozias filius Achab ad Josaphat: Vadant servi mei cum servis tuis in navibus. Et noluit Josaphat.

51 Dormivitque Josaphat cum patribus suis, et sepultus est cum eis in civitate David patris sui: regnavitque Joram filius ejus pro eo.

52 Ochozias autem filius Achab regnare cœperat super Israël in Samaria, anno septimodecimo Josaphat regis Juda: regnavitque super Israël duobus annis.

53 Et fecit malum in conspectu Domini, et ambulavit in via patris sui et matris suæ, et in via Jeroboam filii Nabat, qui peccare fecit Israël.

54 Servivit quoque Baal, et adoravit eum, et irritavit Dominum Deum Israël, juxta omnia quæ fecerat pater ejus.
