2 Kings 7


1  Then Elisha477 said,559 Hear8085 ye the word1697 of the LORD;3068 Thus3541 saith559 the LORD,3068 Tomorrow4279 about this time6256 shall a measure5429 of fine flour5560 be sold for a shekel,8255 and two measures5429 of barley8184 for a shekel,8255 in the gate8179 of Samaria.8111

2  Then a lord7991 on5921 whose834 hand3027 the king4428 leaned8172 answered6030 853 the man376 of God,430 and said,559 Behold,2009 if the LORD3068 would make6213 windows699 in heaven,8064 might this2088 thing1697 be?1961 And he said,559 Behold,2009 thou shalt see7200 it with thine eyes,5869 but shalt not3808 eat398 thereof.4480 8033

3  And there were1961 four702 leprous6879 men376 at the entering in6607 of the gate:8179 and they said559 one376 to413 another,7453 Why4100 sit3427 we587 here6311 until5704 we die?4191

4  If518 we say,559 We will enter935 into the city,5892 then the famine7458 is in the city,5892 and we shall die4191 there:8033 and if518 we sit3427 still here,6311 we die4191 also. Now6258 therefore come,1980 and let us fall5307 unto413 the host4264 of the Syrians:758 if518 they save us alive,2421 we shall live;2421 and if518 they kill4191 us, we shall but die.4191

5  And they rose up6965 in the twilight,5399 to go935 unto413 the camp4264 of the Syrians:758 and when they were come935 to5704 the uttermost part7097 of the camp4264 of Syria,758 behold,2009 there was no369 man376 there.8033

6  For the Lord136 had made 853 the host4264 of the Syrians758 to hear8085 a noise6963 of chariots,7393 and a noise6963 of horses,5483 even the noise6963 of a great1419 host:2428 and they said559 one376 to413 another,251 Lo,2009 the king4428 of Israel3478 hath hired7936 against5921 us 853 the kings4428 of the Hittites,2850 and the kings4428 of the Egyptians,4714 to come935 upon5921 us.

7  Wherefore they arose6965 and fled5127 in the twilight,5399 and left5800 853 their tents,168 and their horses,5483 and their asses,2543 even the camp4264 as834 it1931 was, and fled5127 for413 their life.5315

8  And when these428 lepers6879 came935 to5704 the uttermost part7097 of the camp,4264 they went935 into413 one259 tent,168 and did eat398 and drink,8354 and carried5375 thence4480 8033 silver,3701 and gold,2091 and raiment,899 and went1980 and hid2934 it; and came again,7725 and entered935 into413 another312 tent,168 and carried5375 thence4480 8033 also, and went1980 and hid2934 it.

9  Then they said559 one376 to413 another,7453 We587 do6213 not3808 well:3651 this2088 day3117 is a day3117 of good tidings,1309 and we587 hold our peace:2814 if we tarry2442 till5704 the morning1242 light,216 some mischief5771 will come upon4672 us: now6258 therefore come,1980 that we may go935 and tell5046 the king's4428 household.1004

10  So they came935 and called7121 unto413 the porter7778 of the city:5892 and they told5046 them, saying,559 We came935 to413 the camp4264 of the Syrians,758 and, behold,2009 there was no369 man376 there,8033 neither voice6963 of man,120 but3588 518 horses5483 tied,631 and asses2543 tied,631 and the tents168 as834 they1992 were.

11  And he called7121 the porters;7778 and they told5046 it to the king's4428 house1004 within.6441

12  And the king4428 arose6965 in the night,3915 and said559 unto413 his servants,5650 I will now4994 show5046 you 853 what834 the Syrians758 have done6213 to us. They know3045 that3588 we587 be hungry;7457 therefore are they gone out3318 of4480 the camp4264 to hide themselves2247 in the field,7704 saying,559 When3588 they come out3318 of4480 the city,5892 we shall catch8610 them alive,2416 and get935 into413 the city.5892

13  And one259 of his servants4480 5650 answered6030 and said,559 Let some take,3947 I pray thee,4994 five2568 of4480 the horses5483 that remain,7604 which834 are left7604 in the city, (behold,2009 they are as all3605 the multitude1995 of Israel3478 that834 are left7604 in it: behold,2009 I say, they are even as all3605 the multitude1995 of the Israelites3478 that834 are consumed:)8552 and let us send7971 and see.7200

14  They took3947 therefore two8147 chariot7393 horses;5483 and the king4428 sent7971 after310 the host4264 of the Syrians,758 saying,559 Go1980 and see.7200

15  And they went1980 after310 them unto5704 Jordan:3383 and, lo,2009 all3605 the way1870 was full4392 of garments899 and vessels,3627 which834 the Syrians758 had cast away7993 in their haste.2648 And the messengers4397 returned,7725 and told5046 the king.4428

16  And the people5971 went out,3318 and spoiled962 853 the tents4264 of the Syrians.758 So a measure5429 of fine flour5560 was1961 sold for a shekel,8255 and two measures5429 of barley8184 for a shekel,8255 according to the word1697 of the LORD.3068

17  And the king4428 appointed6485 853 the lord7991 on5921 whose834 hand3027 he leaned8172 to have the charge of5921 the gate:8179 and the people5971 trod upon7429 him in the gate,8179 and he died,4191 as834 the man376 of God430 had said,1696 who834 spoke1696 when the king4428 came down3381 to413 him.

18  And it came to pass1961 as the man376 of God430 had spoken1696 to413 the king,4428 saying,559 Two measures5429 of barley8184 for a shekel,8255 and a measure5429 of fine flour5560 for a shekel,8255 shall be1961 tomorrow4279 about this time6256 in the gate8179 of Samaria:8111

19  And that lord7991 answered6030 853 the man376 of God,430 and said,559 Now, behold,2009 if the LORD3068 should make6213 windows699 in heaven,8064 might such2088 a thing1697 be?1961 And he said,559 Behold,2009 thou shalt see7200 it with thine eyes,5869 but shalt not3808 eat398 thereof.4480 8033

20  And so3651 it fell out1961 unto him: for the people5971 trod upon7429 him in the gate,8179 and he died.4191


1 καὶ εἶπεν Ελισαιε ἄκουσον λόγον κυρίου τάδε λέγει κύριος ὡς ἡ ὥρα αὕτη αὔριον μέτρον σεμιδάλεως σίκλου καὶ δίμετρον κριθῶν σίκλου ἐν ταῖς πύλαις Σαμαρείας

2 καὶ ἀπεκρίθη ὁ τριστάτης ἐφ᾽ ὃν ὁ βασιλεὺς ἐπανεπαύετο ἐπὶ τὴν χεῖρα αὐτοῦ τῷ Ελισαιε καὶ εἶπεν ἰδοὺ ποιήσει κύριος καταρράκτας ἐν οὐρανῷ μὴ ἔσται τὸ ῥῆμα τοῦτο καὶ Ελισαιε εἶπεν ἰδοὺ σὺ ὄψῃ τοῖς ὀφθαλμοῖς σου καὶ ἐκεῖθεν οὐ φάγῃ

3 καὶ τέσσαρες ἄνδρες ἦσαν λεπροὶ παρὰ τὴν θύραν τῆς πόλεως καὶ εἶπεν ἀνὴρ πρὸς τὸν πλησίον αὐτοῦ τί ἡμεῖς καθήμεθα ὧδε ἕως ἀποθάνωμεν

4 ἐὰν εἴπωμεν εἰσέλθωμεν εἰς τὴν πόλιν καὶ ὁ λιμὸς ἐν τῇ πόλει καὶ ἀποθανούμεθα ἐκεῖ καὶ ἐὰν καθίσωμεν ὧδε καὶ ἀποθανούμεθα καὶ νῦν δεῦτε καὶ ἐμπέσωμεν εἰς τὴν παρεμβολὴν Συρίας ἐὰν ζωογονήσωσιν ἡμᾶς καὶ ζησόμεθα καὶ ἐὰν θανατώσωσιν ἡμᾶς καὶ ἀποθανούμεθα

5 καὶ ἀνέστησαν ἐν τῷ σκότει εἰσελθεῖν εἰς τὴν παρεμβολὴν Συρίας καὶ ἦλθον εἰς μέρος τῆς παρεμβολῆς Συρίας καὶ ἰδοὺ οὐκ ἔστιν ἀνὴρ ἐκεῖ

6 καὶ κύριος ἀκουστὴν ἐποίησεν τὴν παρεμβολὴν Συρίας φωνὴν ἅρματος καὶ φωνὴν ἵππου καὶ φωνὴν δυνάμεως μεγάλης καὶ εἶπεν ἀνὴρ πρὸς τὸν ἀδελφὸν αὐτοῦ νῦν ἐμισθώσατο ἐφ᾽ ἡμᾶς βασιλεὺς Ισραηλ τοὺς βασιλέας τῶν Χετταίων καὶ τοὺς βασιλέας Αἰγύπτου τοῦ ἐλθεῖν ἐφ᾽ ἡμᾶς

7 καὶ ἀνέστησαν καὶ ἀπέδρασαν ἐν τῷ σκότει καὶ ἐγκατέλιπαν τὰς σκηνὰς αὐτῶν καὶ τοὺς ἵππους αὐτῶν καὶ τοὺς ὄνους αὐτῶν ἐν τῇ παρεμβολῇ ὡς ἔστιν καὶ ἔφυγον πρὸς τὴν ψυχὴν ἑαυτῶν

8 καὶ εἰσῆλθον οἱ λεπροὶ οὗτοι ἕως μέρους τῆς παρεμβολῆς καὶ εἰσῆλθον εἰς σκηνὴν μίαν καὶ ἔφαγον καὶ ἔπιον καὶ ἦραν ἐκεῖθεν ἀργύριον καὶ χρυσίον καὶ ἱματισμὸν καὶ ἐπορεύθησαν καὶ ἐπέστρεψαν καὶ εἰσῆλθον εἰς σκηνὴν ἄλλην καὶ ἔλαβον ἐκεῖθεν καὶ ἐπορεύθησαν καὶ κατέκρυψαν

9 καὶ εἶπεν ἀνὴρ πρὸς τὸν πλησίον αὐτοῦ οὐχ οὕτως ἡμεῖς ποιοῦμεν ἡ ἡμέρα αὕτη ἡμέρα εὐαγγελίας ἐστίν καὶ ἡμεῖς σιωπῶμεν καὶ μένομεν ἕως φωτὸς τοῦ πρωὶ καὶ εὑρήσομεν ἀνομίαν καὶ νῦν δεῦρο καὶ εἰσέλθωμεν καὶ ἀναγγείλωμεν εἰς τὸν οἶκον τοῦ βασιλέως

10 καὶ εἰσῆλθον καὶ ἐβόησαν πρὸς τὴν πύλην τῆς πόλεως καὶ ἀνήγγειλαν αὐτοῖς λέγοντες εἰσήλθομεν εἰς τὴν παρεμβολὴν Συρίας καὶ ἰδοὺ οὐκ ἔστιν ἐκεῖ ἀνὴρ καὶ φωνὴ ἀνθρώπου ὅτι εἰ μὴ ἵππος δεδεμένος καὶ ὄνος καὶ αἱ σκηναὶ αὐτῶν ὡς εἰσίν

11 καὶ ἐβόησαν οἱ θυρωροὶ καὶ ἀνήγγειλαν εἰς τὸν οἶκον τοῦ βασιλέως ἔσω

12 καὶ ἀνέστη ὁ βασιλεὺς νυκτὸς καὶ εἶπεν πρὸς τοὺς παῖδας αὐτοῦ ἀναγγελῶ δὴ ὑμῖν ἃ ἐποίησεν ἡμῖν Συρία ἔγνωσαν ὅτι πεινῶμεν ἡμεῖς καὶ ἐξῆλθαν ἐκ τῆς παρεμβολῆς καὶ ἐκρύβησαν ἐν τῷ ἀγρῷ λέγοντες ὅτι ἐξελεύσονται ἐκ τῆς πόλεως καὶ συλλημψόμεθα αὐτοὺς ζῶντας καὶ εἰς τὴν πόλιν εἰσελευσόμεθα

13 καὶ ἀπεκρίθη εἷς τῶν παίδων αὐτοῦ καὶ εἶπεν λαβέτωσαν δὴ πέντε τῶν ἵππων τῶν ὑπολελειμμένων οἳ κατελείφθησαν ὧδε ἰδού εἰσιν πρὸς πᾶν τὸ πλῆθος Ισραηλ τὸ ἐκλεῖπον καὶ ἀποστελοῦμεν ἐκεῖ καὶ ὀψόμεθα

14 καὶ ἔλαβον δύο ἐπιβάτας ἵππων καὶ ἀπέστειλεν ὁ βασιλεὺς Ισραηλ ὀπίσω τοῦ βασιλέως Συρίας λέγων δεῦτε καὶ ἴδετε

15 καὶ ἐπορεύθησαν ὀπίσω αὐτῶν ἕως τοῦ Ιορδάνου καὶ ἰδοὺ πᾶσα ἡ ὁδὸς πλήρης ἱματίων καὶ σκευῶν ὧν ἔρριψεν Συρία ἐν τῷ θαμβεῖσθαι αὐτούς καὶ ἐπέστρεψαν οἱ ἄγγελοι καὶ ἀνήγγειλαν τῷ βασιλεῖ

16 καὶ ἐξῆλθεν ὁ λαὸς καὶ διήρπασεν τὴν παρεμβολὴν Συρίας καὶ ἐγένετο μέτρον σεμιδάλεως σίκλου καὶ δίμετρον κριθῶν σίκλου κατὰ τὸ ῥῆμα κυρίου

17 καὶ ὁ βασιλεὺς κατέστησεν τὸν τριστάτην ἐφ᾽ ὃν ὁ βασιλεὺς ἐπανεπαύετο ἐπὶ τῇ χειρὶ αὐτοῦ ἐπὶ τῆς πύλης καὶ συνεπάτησεν αὐτὸν ὁ λαὸς ἐν τῇ πύλῃ καὶ ἀπέθανεν καθὰ ἐλάλησεν ὁ ἄνθρωπος τοῦ θεοῦ ὃς ἐλάλησεν ἐν τῷ καταβῆναι τὸν ἄγγελον πρὸς αὐτόν

18 καὶ ἐγένετο καθὰ ἐλάλησεν Ελισαιε πρὸς τὸν βασιλέα λέγων Δίμετρον κριθῆς σίκλου καὶ μέτρον σεμιδάλεως σίκλου καὶ ἔσται ὡς ἡ ὥρα αὕτη αὔριον ἐν τῇ πύλῃ Σαμαρείας

19 καὶ ἀπεκρίθη ὁ τριστάτης τῷ Ελισαιε καὶ εἶπεν ἰδοὺ κύριος ποιεῖ καταρράκτας ἐν τῷ οὐρανῷ μὴ ἔσται τὸ ῥῆμα τοῦτο καὶ εἶπεν Ελισαιε ἰδοὺ ὄψῃ τοῖς ὀφθαλμοῖς σου καὶ ἐκεῖθεν οὐ φάγῃ

20 καὶ ἐγένετο οὕτως καὶ συνεπάτησεν αὐτὸν ὁ λαὸς ἐν τῇ πύλῃ καὶ ἀπέθανεν

1 Dixit autem Eliseus: Audite verbum Domini: Hæc dicit Dominus: In tempore hoc cras modius similæ uno statere erit, et duo modii hordei statere uno, in porta Samariæ.

2 Respondens unus de ducibus, super cujus manum rex incumbebat, homini Dei, ait: Si Dominus fecerit etiam cataractas in cælo, numquid poterit esse quod loqueris? Qui ait: Videbis oculis tuis, et inde non comedes.

3 Quatuor ergo viri erant leprosi juxta introitum portæ: qui dixerunt ad invicem: Quid hic esse volumus donec moriamur?

4 sive ingredi voluerimus civitatem, fame moriemur: sive manserimus hic, moriendum nobis est: venite ergo, et transfugiamus ad castra Syriæ: si pepercerint nobis, vivemus: si autem occidere voluerint, nihilominus moriemur.

5 Surrexerunt ergo vesperi, ut venirent ad castra Syriæ. Cumque venissent ad principium castrorum Syriæ, nullum ibidem repererunt.

6 Siquidem Dominus sonitum audiri fecerat in castris Syriæ, curruum, et equorum, et exercitus plurimi: dixeruntque ad invicem: Ecce mercede conduxit adversum nos rex Israël reges Hethæorum et Ægyptiorum, et venerunt super nos.

7 Surrexerunt ergo, et fugerunt in tenebris, et dereliquerunt tentoria sua, et equos et asinos, in castris, fugeruntque animas tantum suas salvare cupientes.

8 Igitur cum venissent leprosi illi ad principium castrorum, ingressi sunt unum tabernaculum, et comederunt et biberunt: tuleruntque inde argentum, et aurum, et vestes, et abierunt, et absconderunt: et rursum reversi sunt ad aliud tabernaculum, et inde similiter auferentes absconderunt.

9 Dixeruntque ad invicem: Non recte facimus: hæc enim dies boni nuntii est. Si tacuerimus et noluerimus nuntiare usque mane, sceleris arguemur: venite, eamus, et nuntiemus in aula regis.

10 Cumque venissent ad portam civitatis, narraverunt eis, dicentes: Ivimus ad castra Syriæ, et nullum ibidem reperimus hominem, nisi equos et asinos alligatos, et fixa tentoria.

11 Ierunt ergo portarii, et nuntiaverunt in palatio regis intrinsecus.

12 Qui surrexit nocte, et ait ad servos suos: Dico vobis quid fecerint nobis Syri: sciunt quia fame laboramus, et idcirco egressi sunt de castris, et latitant in agris, dicentes: Cum egressi fuerint de civitate, capiemus eos vivos, et tunc civitatem ingredi poterimus.

13 Respondit autem unus servorum ejus: Tollamus quinque equos qui remanserunt in urbe (quia ipsi tantum sunt in universa multitudine Israël, alii enim consumpti sunt), et mittentes, explorare poterimus.

14 Adduxerunt ergo duos equos, misitque rex in castra Syrorum, dicens: Ite, et videte.

15 Qui abierunt post eos usque ad Jordanem: ecce autem omnis via plena erat vestibus et vasis quæ projecerant Syri cum turbarentur: reversique nuntii indicaverunt regi.

16 Et egressus populus diripuit castra Syriæ: factusque est modius similæ statere uno, et duo modii hordei statere uno, juxta verbum Domini.

17 Porro rex ducem illum, in cujus manu incumbebat, constituit ad portam: quem conculcavit turba in introitu portæ, et mortuus est, juxta quod locutus fuerat vir Dei, quando descenderat rex ad eum.

18 Factumque est secundum sermonem viri Dei quem dixerat regi, quando ait: Duo modii hordei statere uno erunt, et modius similæ statere uno, hoc eodem tempore cras in porta Samariæ:

19 quando responderat dux ille viro Dei, et dixerat: Etiamsi Dominus fecerit cataractas in cælo, numquid poterit fieri quod loqueris? Et dixit ei: Videbis oculis tuis, et inde non comedes.

20 Evenit ergo ei sicut prædictum fuerat, et conculcavit eum populus in porta, et mortuus est.
