2 Kings 9


1  And Elisha477 the prophet5030 called7121 one259 of the children4480 1121 of the prophets,5030 and said559 unto him, Gird up2296 thy loins,4975 and take3947 this2088 box6378 of oil8081 in thine hand,3027 and go1980 to Ramoth-gilead:7433

2  And when thou comest935 thither,8033 look out7200 there8033 Jehu3058 the son1121 of Jehoshaphat3092 the son1121 of Nimshi,5250 and go in,935 and make him arise up6965 from among4480 8432 his brethren,251 and carry935 him to an inner2315 chamber;2315

3  Then take3947 the box6378 of oil,8081 and pour3332 it on5921 his head,7218 and say,559 Thus3541 saith559 the LORD,3068 I have anointed4886 thee king4428 over413 Israel.3478 Then open6605 the door,1817 and flee,5127 and tarry2442 not.3808

4  So the young man,5288 even the young man5288 the prophet,5030 went1980 to Ramoth-gilead.7433

5  And when he came,935 behold,2009 the captains8269 of the host2428 were sitting;3427 and he said,559 I have an errand1697 to413 thee, O captain.8269 And Jehu3058 said,559 Unto413 which4310 of all4480 3605 us? And he said,559 To413 thee, O captain.8269

6  And he arose,6965 and went935 into the house;1004 and he poured3332 the oil8081 on413 his head,7218 and said559 unto him, Thus3541 saith559 the LORD3068 God430 of Israel,3478 I have anointed4886 thee king4428 over413 the people5971 of the LORD,3068 even over413 Israel.3478

7  And thou shalt smite5221 853 the house1004 of Ahab256 thy master,113 that I may avenge5358 the blood1818 of my servants5650 the prophets,5030 and the blood1818 of all3605 the servants5650 of the LORD,3068 at the hand4480 3027 of Jezebel.348

8  For the whole3605 house1004 of Ahab256 shall perish:6 and I will cut off3772 from Ahab256 him that pisseth8366 against the wall,7023 and him that is shut up6113 and left5800 in Israel:3478

9  And I will make5414 853 the house1004 of Ahab256 like the house1004 of Jeroboam3379 the son1121 of Nebat,5028 and like the house1004 of Baasha1201 the son1121 of Ahijah:281

10  And the dogs3611 shall eat398 Jezebel348 in the portion2506 of Jezreel,3157 and there shall be none369 to bury6912 her. And he opened6605 the door,1817 and fled.5127

11  Then Jehu3058 came forth3318 to413 the servants5650 of his lord:113 and one said559 unto him, Is all well?7965 wherefore4069 came935 this2088 mad7696 fellow to413 thee? And he said559 unto413 them, Ye859 know3045 the man,376 and 853 his communication.7879

12  And they said,559 It is false;8267 tell5046 us now.4994 And he said,559 Thus2063 and thus2063 spoke559 he to413 me, saying,559 Thus3541 saith559 the LORD,3068 I have anointed4886 thee king4428 over413 Israel.3478

13  Then they hasted,4116 and took3947 every man376 his garment,899 and put7760 it under8478 him on413 the top1634 of the stairs,4609 and blew8628 with trumpets,7782 saying,559 Jehu3058 is king.4427

14  So Jehu3058 the son1121 of Jehoshaphat3092 the son1121 of Nimshi5250 conspired7194 against413 Joram.3141 (Now Joram3141 had1961 kept8104 Ramoth-gilead,7433 he1931 and all3605 Israel,3478 because4480 6440 of Hazael2371 king4428 of Syria.758

15  But king4428 Joram3088 was returned7725 to be healed7495 in Jezreel3157 of4480 the wounds4347 which834 the Syrians761 had given5221 him, when he fought3898 with854 Hazael2371 king4428 of Syria.)758 And Jehu3058 said,559 If518 it be3426 your minds,5315 then let none408 go forth3318 nor escape6412 out of4480 the city5892 to go1980 to tell5046 it in Jezreel.3157

16  So Jehu3058 rode in a chariot,7392 and went1980 to Jezreel;3157 for3588 Joram3141 lay7901 there.8033 And Ahaziah274 king4428 of Judah3063 was come down3381 to see7200 853 Joram.3141

17  And there stood5975 a watchman6822 on5921 the tower4026 in Jezreel,3157 and he spied7200 853 the company8229 of Jehu3058 as he came,935 and said,559 I589 see7200 a company.8229 And Joram3088 said,559 Take3947 a horseman,7395 and send7971 to meet7122 them, and let him say,559 Is it peace?7965

18  So there went1980 one on horseback7392 5483 to meet7122 him, and said,559 Thus3541 saith559 the king,4428 Is it peace?7965 And Jehu3058 said,559 What4100 hast thou to do with peace?7965 turn5437 thee behind413 310 me. And the watchman6822 told,5046 saying,559 The messenger4397 came935 to5704 them,1992 but he cometh not again.7725 3808

19  Then he sent out7971 a second8145 on horseback,7392 5483 which came935 to413 them, and said,559 Thus3541 saith559 the king,4428 Is it peace?7965 And Jehu3058 answered,559 What4100 hast thou to do with peace?7965 turn5437 thee behind413 310 me.

20  And the watchman6822 told,5046 saying,559 He came935 even5704 unto413 them, and cometh not again:7725 3808 and the driving4491 is like the driving4491 of Jehu3058 the son1121 of Nimshi;5250 for3588 he driveth5090 furiously.7697

21  And Joram3088 said,559 Make ready.631 And his chariot7393 was made ready.631 And Joram3088 king4428 of Israel3478 and Ahaziah274 king4428 of Judah3063 went out,3318 each376 in his chariot,7393 and they went out3318 against7122 Jehu,3058 and met4672 him in the portion2513 of Naboth5022 the Jezreelite.3158

22  And it came to pass,1961 when Joram3088 saw7200 853 Jehu,3058 that he said,559 Is it peace,7965 Jehu?3058 And he answered,559 What4100 peace,7965 so long as5704 the whoredoms2183 of thy mother517 Jezebel348 and her witchcrafts3785 are so many?7227

23  And Joram3088 turned2015 his hands,3027 and fled,5127 and said559 to413 Ahaziah,274 There is treachery,4820 O Ahaziah.274

24  And Jehu3058 drew a bow7198 with his full4390 strength,3027 and smote5221 853 Jehoram3088 between996 his arms,2220 and the arrow2678 went out3318 at his heart,4480 3820 and he sunk down3766 in his chariot.7393

25  Then said559 Jehu to413 Bidkar920 his captain,7991 Take up,5375 and cast7993 him in the portion2513 of the field7704 of Naboth5022 the Jezreelite:3158 for3588 remember2142 how that, when I589 and thou859 853 rode7392 together6776 after310 Ahab256 his father,1 the LORD3068 laid5375 853 this2088 burden4853 upon5921 him;

26  Surely518 3808 I have seen7200 yesterday570 853 the blood1818 of Naboth,5022 and the blood1818 of his sons,1121 saith5002 the LORD;3068 and I will requite7999 thee in this2063 plat,2513 saith5002 the LORD.3068 Now6258 therefore take5375 and cast7993 him into the plat2513 of ground, according to the word1697 of the LORD.3068

27  But when Ahaziah274 the king4428 of Judah3063 saw7200 this, he fled5127 by the way1870 of the garden1588 house.1004 And Jehu3058 followed7291 after310 him, and said,559 Smite5221 him also1571 in413 the chariot.4818 And they did so at the going up4608 to Gur,1483 which834 is by854 Ibleam.2991 And he fled5127 to Megiddo,4023 and died4191 there.8033

28  And his servants5650 carried him in a chariot7392 853 to Jerusalem,3389 and buried6912 him in his sepulcher6900 with5973 his fathers1 in the city5892 of David.1732

29  And in the eleventh259 6240 year8141 of Joram3141 the son1121 of Ahab256 began Ahaziah274 to reign4427 over5921 Judah.3063

30  And when Jehu3058 was come935 to Jezreel,3157 Jezebel348 heard8085 of it; and she painted7760 6320 her face,5869 and tired3190 853 her head,7218 and looked out8259 at1157 a window.2474

31  And as Jehu3058 entered in935 at the gate,8179 she said,559 Had Zimri2174 peace,7965 who slew2026 his master?113

32  And he lifted up5375 his face6440 to413 the window,2474 and said,559 Who4310 is on my side?854 who?4310 And there looked out8259 to413 him two8147 or three7969 eunuchs.5631

33  And he said,559 Throw her down.8058 So they threw her down:8058 and some of her blood4480 1818 was sprinkled5137 on413 the wall,7023 and on413 the horses:5483 and he trod her under foot.7429

34  And when he was come in,935 he did eat398 and drink,8354 and said,559 Go, see6485 now4994 853 this2063 cursed779 woman, and bury6912 her: for3588 she1931 is a king's4428 daughter.1323

35  And they went1980 to bury6912 her: but they found4672 no more3808 of her than3588 518 the skull,1538 and the feet,7272 and the palms3709 of her hands.3027

36  Wherefore they came again,7725 and told5046 him. And he said,559 This1931 is the word1697 of the LORD,3068 which834 he spoke1696 by3027 his servant5650 Elijah452 the Tishbite,8664 saying,559 In the portion2506 of Jezreel3157 shall dogs3611 eat398 853 the flesh1320 of Jezebel:348

37  And the carcass5038 of Jezebel348 shall be1961 as dung1828 upon5921 the face6440 of the field7704 in the portion2506 of Jezreel;3157 so that834 they shall not3808 say,559 This2063 is Jezebel.348


1 καὶ Ελισαιε ὁ προφήτης ἐκάλεσεν ἕνα τῶν υἱῶν τῶν προφητῶν καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῷ ζῶσαι τὴν ὀσφύν σου καὶ λαβὲ τὸν φακὸν τοῦ ἐλαίου τούτου ἐν τῇ χειρί σου καὶ δεῦρο εἰς Ρεμμωθ Γαλααδ

2 καὶ εἰσελεύσῃ ἐκεῖ καὶ ὄψῃ ἐκεῖ Ιου υἱὸν Ιωσαφατ υἱοῦ Ναμεσσι καὶ εἰσελεύσῃ καὶ ἀναστήσεις αὐτὸν ἐκ μέσου τῶν ἀδελφῶν αὐτοῦ καὶ εἰσάξεις αὐτὸν εἰς τὸ ταμίειον ἐν τῷ ταμιείῳ

3 καὶ λήμψῃ τὸν φακὸν τοῦ ἐλαίου καὶ ἐπιχεεῖς ἐπὶ τὴν κεφαλὴν αὐτοῦ καὶ εἰπόν τάδε λέγει κύριος κέχρικά σε εἰς βασιλέα ἐπὶ Ισραηλ καὶ ἀνοίξεις τὴν θύραν καὶ φεύξῃ καὶ οὐ μενεῖς

4 καὶ ἐπορεύθη τὸ παιδάριον ὁ προφήτης εἰς Ρεμμωθ Γαλααδ

5 καὶ εἰσῆλθεν καὶ ἰδοὺ οἱ ἄρχοντες τῆς δυνάμεως ἐκάθηντο καὶ εἶπεν λόγος μοι πρὸς σέ ὁ ἄρχων καὶ εἶπεν Ιου πρὸς τίνα ἐκ πάντων ἡμῶν καὶ εἶπεν πρὸς σέ ὁ ἄρχων

6 καὶ ἀνέστη καὶ εἰσῆλθεν εἰς τὸν οἶκον καὶ ἐπέχεεν τὸ ἔλαιον ἐπὶ τὴν κεφαλὴν αὐτοῦ καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῷ τάδε λέγει κύριος ὁ θεὸς Ισραηλ κέχρικά σε εἰς βασιλέα ἐπὶ λαὸν κυρίου ἐπὶ τὸν Ισραηλ

7 καὶ ἐξολεθρεύσεις τὸν οἶκον Αχααβ τοῦ κυρίου σου ἐκ προσώπου μου καὶ ἐκδικήσεις τὰ αἵματα τῶν δούλων μου τῶν προφητῶν καὶ τὰ αἵματα πάντων τῶν δούλων κυρίου ἐκ χειρὸς Ιεζαβελ

8 καὶ ἐκ χειρὸς ὅλου τοῦ οἴκου Αχααβ καὶ ἐξολεθρεύσεις τῷ οἴκῳ Αχααβ οὐροῦντα πρὸς τοῖχον καὶ συνεχόμενον καὶ ἐγκαταλελειμμένον ἐν Ισραηλ

9 καὶ δώσω τὸν οἶκον Αχααβ ὡς τὸν οἶκον Ιεροβοαμ υἱοῦ Ναβατ καὶ ὡς τὸν οἶκον Βαασα υἱοῦ Αχια

10 καὶ τὴν Ιεζαβελ καταφάγονται οἱ κύνες ἐν τῇ μερίδι Ιεζραελ καὶ οὐκ ἔστιν ὁ θάπτων καὶ ἤνοιξεν τὴν θύραν καὶ ἔφυγεν

11 καὶ Ιου ἐξῆλθεν πρὸς τοὺς παῖδας τοῦ κυρίου αὐτοῦ καὶ εἶπον αὐτῷ εἰ εἰρήνη τί ὅτι εἰσῆλθεν ὁ ἐπίλημπτος οὗτος πρὸς σέ καὶ εἶπεν αὐτοῖς ὑμεῖς οἴδατε τὸν ἄνδρα καὶ τὴν ἀδολεσχίαν αὐτοῦ

12 καὶ εἶπον ἄδικον ἀπάγγειλον δὴ ἡμῖν καὶ εἶπεν Ιου πρὸς αὐτούς οὕτως καὶ οὕτως ἐλάλησεν πρός με λέγων τάδε λέγει κύριος κέχρικά σε εἰς βασιλέα ἐπὶ Ισραηλ

13 καὶ ἀκούσαντες ἔσπευσαν καὶ ἔλαβον ἕκαστος τὸ ἱμάτιον αὐτοῦ καὶ ἔθηκαν ὑποκάτω αὐτοῦ ἐπὶ γαρεμ τῶν ἀναβαθμῶν καὶ ἐσάλπισαν ἐν κερατίνῃ καὶ εἶπον ἐβασίλευσεν Ιου

14 καὶ συνεστράφη Ιου υἱὸς Ιωσαφατ υἱοῦ Ναμεσσι πρὸς Ιωραμ καὶ Ιωραμ αὐτὸς ἐφύλασσεν ἐν Ρεμμωθ Γαλααδ αὐτὸς καὶ πᾶς Ισραηλ ἀπὸ προσώπου Αζαηλ βασιλέως Συρίας

15 καὶ ἀπέστρεψεν Ιωραμ ὁ βασιλεὺς ἰατρευθῆναι ἐν Ιεζραελ ἀπὸ τῶν πληγῶν ὧν ἔπαισαν αὐτὸν οἱ Σύροι ἐν τῷ πολεμεῖν αὐτὸν μετὰ Αζαηλ βασιλέως Συρίας καὶ εἶπεν Ιου εἰ ἔστιν ἡ ψυχὴ ὑμῶν μετ᾽ ἐμοῦ μὴ ἐξελθέτω ἐκ τῆς πόλεως διαπεφευγὼς τοῦ πορευθῆναι καὶ ἀπαγγεῖλαι ἐν Ιεζραελ

16 καὶ ἵππευσεν καὶ ἐπορεύθη Ιου καὶ κατέβη εἰς Ιεζραελ ὅτι Ιωραμ βασιλεὺς Ισραηλ ἐθεραπεύετο ἐν Ιεζραελ ἀπὸ τῶν τοξευμάτων ὧν κατετόξευσαν αὐτὸν οἱ Αραμιν ἐν τῇ Ραμμαθ ἐν τῷ πολέμῳ μετὰ Αζαηλ βασιλέως Συρίας ὅτι αὐτὸς δυνατὸς καὶ ἀνὴρ δυνάμεως καὶ Οχοζιας βασιλεὺς Ιουδα κατέβη ἰδεῖν τὸν Ιωραμ

17 καὶ ὁ σκοπὸς ἀνέβη ἐπὶ τὸν πύργον ἐν Ιεζραελ καὶ εἶδεν τὸν κονιορτὸν Ιου ἐν τῷ παραγίνεσθαι αὐτὸν καὶ εἶπεν Κονιορτὸν ἐγὼ βλέπω καὶ εἶπεν Ιωραμ λαβὲ ἐπιβάτην καὶ ἀπόστειλον ἔμπροσθεν αὐτῶν καὶ εἰπάτω εἰ εἰρήνη

18 καὶ ἐπορεύθη ἐπιβάτης ἵππου εἰς ἀπαντὴν αὐτῶν καὶ εἶπεν τάδε λέγει ὁ βασιλεύς εἰ εἰρήνη καὶ εἶπεν Ιου τί σοι καὶ εἰρήνῃ ἐπίστρεφε εἰς τὰ ὀπίσω μου καὶ ἀπήγγειλεν ὁ σκοπὸς λέγων ἦλθεν ὁ ἄγγελος ἕως αὐτῶν καὶ οὐκ ἀνέστρεψεν

19 καὶ ἀπέστειλεν ἐπιβάτην ἵππου δεύτερον καὶ ἦλθεν πρὸς αὐτὸν καὶ εἶπεν τάδε λέγει ὁ βασιλεύς εἰ εἰρήνη καὶ εἶπεν Ιου τί σοι καὶ εἰρήνῃ ἐπιστρέφου εἰς τὰ ὀπίσω μου

20 καὶ ἀπήγγειλεν ὁ σκοπὸς λέγων ἦλθεν ἕως αὐτῶν καὶ οὐκ ἀνέστρεψεν καὶ ὁ ἄγων ἦγεν τὸν Ιου υἱὸν Ναμεσσιου ὅτι ἐν παραλλαγῇ ἐγένετο

21 καὶ εἶπεν Ιωραμ ζεῦξον καὶ ἔζευξεν ἅρμα καὶ ἐξῆλθεν Ιωραμ βασιλεὺς Ισραηλ καὶ Οχοζιας βασιλεὺς Ιουδα ἀνὴρ ἐν τῷ ἅρματι αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐξῆλθον εἰς ἀπαντὴν Ιου καὶ εὗρον αὐτὸν ἐν τῇ μερίδι Ναβουθαι τοῦ Ιεζραηλίτου

22 καὶ ἐγένετο ὡς εἶδεν Ιωραμ τὸν Ιου καὶ εἶπεν εἰ εἰρήνη Ιου καὶ εἶπεν Ιου τί εἰρήνη ἔτι αἱ πορνεῖαι Ιεζαβελ τῆς μητρός σου καὶ τὰ φάρμακα αὐτῆς τὰ πολλά

23 καὶ ἐπέστρεψεν Ιωραμ τὰς χεῖρας αὐτοῦ τοῦ φυγεῖν καὶ εἶπεν πρὸς Οχοζιαν δόλος Οχοζια

24 καὶ ἔπλησεν Ιου τὴν χεῖρα αὐτοῦ ἐν τῷ τόξῳ καὶ ἐπάταξεν τὸν Ιωραμ ἀνὰ μέσον τῶν βραχιόνων αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐξῆλθεν τὸ βέλος διὰ τῆς καρδίας αὐτοῦ καὶ ἔκαμψεν ἐπὶ τὰ γόνατα αὐτοῦ

25 καὶ εἶπεν Ιου πρὸς Βαδεκαρ τὸν τριστάτην αὐτοῦ ῥῖψον αὐτὸν ἐν τῇ μερίδι ἀγροῦ Ναβουθαι τοῦ Ιεζραηλίτου ὅτι μνημονεύω ἐγὼ καὶ σὺ ἐπιβεβηκότες ἐπὶ ζεύγη ὀπίσω Αχααβ τοῦ πατρὸς αὐτοῦ καὶ κύριος ἔλαβεν ἐπ᾽ αὐτὸν τὸ λῆμμα τοῦτο λέγων

26 εἰ μὴ μετὰ τῶν αἱμάτων Ναβουθαι καὶ τὰ αἵματα τῶν υἱῶν αὐτοῦ εἶδον ἐχθές φησὶν κύριος καὶ ἀνταποδώσω αὐτῷ ἐν τῇ μερίδι ταύτῃ φησὶν κύριος καὶ νῦν ἄρας δὴ ῥῖψον αὐτὸν ἐν τῇ μερίδι κατὰ τὸ ῥῆμα κυρίου

27 καὶ Οχοζιας βασιλεὺς Ιουδα εἶδεν καὶ ἔφυγεν ὁδὸν Βαιθαγγαν καὶ ἐδίωξεν ὀπίσω αὐτοῦ Ιου καὶ εἶπεν καί γε αὐτόν καὶ ἐπάταξεν αὐτὸν ἐν τῷ ἅρματι ἐν τῷ ἀναβαίνειν Γαι ἥ ἐστιν Ιεβλααμ καὶ ἔφυγεν εἰς Μαγεδδων καὶ ἀπέθανεν ἐκεῖ

28 καὶ ἐπεβίβασαν αὐτὸν οἱ παῖδες αὐτοῦ ἐπὶ τὸ ἅρμα καὶ ἤγαγον αὐτὸν εἰς Ιερουσαλημ καὶ ἔθαψαν αὐτὸν ἐν τῷ τάφῳ αὐτοῦ ἐν πόλει Δαυιδ

29 καὶ ἐν ἔτει ἑνδεκάτῳ Ιωραμ βασιλέως Ισραηλ ἐβασίλευσεν Οχοζιας ἐπὶ Ιουδαν

30 καὶ ἦλθεν Ιου εἰς Ιεζραελ καὶ Ιεζαβελ ἤκουσεν καὶ ἐστιμίσατο τοὺς ὀφθαλμοὺς αὐτῆς καὶ ἠγάθυνεν τὴν κεφαλὴν αὐτῆς καὶ διέκυψεν διὰ τῆς θυρίδος

31 καὶ Ιου εἰσεπορεύετο ἐν τῇ πόλει καὶ εἶπεν εἰ εἰρήνη Ζαμβρι ὁ φονευτὴς τοῦ κυρίου αὐτοῦ

32 καὶ ἐπῆρεν τὸ πρόσωπον αὐτοῦ εἰς τὴν θυρίδα καὶ εἶδεν αὐτὴν καὶ εἶπεν τίς εἶ σύ κατάβηθι μετ᾽ ἐμοῦ καὶ κατέκυψαν πρὸς αὐτὸν δύο εὐνοῦχοι

33 καὶ εἶπεν κυλίσατε αὐτήν καὶ ἐκύλισαν αὐτήν καὶ ἐρραντίσθη τοῦ αἵματος αὐτῆς πρὸς τὸν τοῖχον καὶ πρὸς τοὺς ἵππους καὶ συνεπάτησαν αὐτήν

34 καὶ εἰσῆλθεν Ιου καὶ ἔφαγεν καὶ ἔπιεν καὶ εἶπεν ἐπισκέψασθε δὴ τὴν κατηραμένην ταύτην καὶ θάψατε αὐτήν ὅτι θυγάτηρ βασιλέως ἐστίν

35 καὶ ἐπορεύθησαν θάψαι αὐτὴν καὶ οὐχ εὗρον ἐν αὐτῇ ἄλλο τι ἢ τὸ κρανίον καὶ οἱ πόδες καὶ τὰ ἴχνη τῶν χειρῶν

36 καὶ ἐπέστρεψαν καὶ ἀνήγγειλαν αὐτῷ καὶ εἶπεν λόγος κυρίου ὃν ἐλάλησεν ἐν χειρὶ δούλου αὐτοῦ Ηλιου τοῦ Θεσβίτου λέγων ἐν τῇ μερίδι Ιεζραελ καταφάγονται οἱ κύνες τὰς σάρκας Ιεζαβελ

37 καὶ ἔσται τὸ θνησιμαῖον Ιεζαβελ ὡς κοπρία ἐπὶ προσώπου τοῦ ἀγροῦ ἐν τῇ μερίδι Ιεζραελ ὥστε μὴ εἰπεῖν αὐτούς Ιεζαβελ

1 Eliseus autem prophetes vocavit unum de filiis prophetarum, et ait illi: Accinge lumbos tuos, et tolle lenticulam olei hanc in manu tua, et vade in Ramoth Galaad.

2 Cumque veneris illuc, videbis Jehu filium Josaphat filii Namsi: et ingressus suscitabis eum de medio fratrum suorum, et introduces in interius cubiculum.

3 Tenensque lenticulam olei, fundes super caput ejus, et dices: Hæc dicit Dominus: Unxi te regem super Israël. Aperiesque ostium, et fugies, et non ibi subsistes.

4 Abiit ergo adolescens puer prophetæ in Ramoth Galaad,

5 et ingressus est illuc: ecce autem principes exercitus sedebant: et ait: Verbum mihi ad te, o princeps. Dixitque Jehu: Ad quem ex omnibus nobis? At ille dixit: Ad te, o princeps.

6 Et surrexit, et ingressus est cubiculum: at ille fudit oleum super caput ejus, et ait: Hæc dicit Dominus Deus Israël: Unxi te regem super populum Domini Israël,

7 et percuties domum Achab domini tui, et ulciscar sanguinem servorum meorum prophetarum, et sanguinem omnium servorum Domini de manu Jezabel.

8 Perdamque omnem domum Achab: et interficiam de Achab mingentem ad parietem, et clausum et novissimum in Israël.

9 Et dabo domum Achab sicut domum Jeroboam filii Nabat, et sicut domum Baasa filii Ahia.

10 Jezabel quoque comedent canes in agro Jezrahel, nec erit qui sepeliat eam. Aperuitque ostium, et fugit.

11 Jehu autem egressus est ad servos domini sui: qui dixerunt ei: Rectene sunt omnia? quid venit insanus iste ad te? Qui ait eis: Nostis hominem, et quid locutus sit.

12 At ille responderunt: Falsum est, sed magis narra nobis. Qui ait eis: Hæc et hæc locutus est mihi, et ait: Hæc dicit Dominus: Unxi te regem super Israël.

13 Festinaverunt itaque, et unusquisque tollens pallium suum posuerunt sub pedibus ejus in similitudinem tribunalis, et cecinerunt tuba, atque dixerunt: Regnavit Jehu.

14 Conjuravit ergo Jehu filius Josaphat filii Namsi contra Joram: porro Joram obsederat Ramoth Galaad, ipse et omnis Israël contra Hazaël regem Syriæ:

15 et reversus fuerat ut curaretur in Jezrahel propter vulnera, quia percusserant eum Syri præliantem contra Hazaël regem Syriæ. Dixitque Jehu: Si placet vobis, nemo egrediatur profugus de civitate, ne vadat, et nuntiet in Jezrahel.

16 Et ascendit, et profectus est in Jezrahel: Joram enim ægrotabat ibi, et Ochozias rex Juda descenderat ad visitandum Joram.

17 Igitur speculator qui stabat super turrim Jezrahel, vidit globum Jehu venientis, et ait: Video ego globum. Dixitque Joram: Tolle currum, et mitte in occursum eorum, et dicat vadens: Rectene sunt omnia?

18 Abiit ergo qui ascenderat currum, in occursum ejus, et ait: Hæc dicit rex: Pacatane sunt omnia? Dixitque Jehu: Quid tibi et paci? transi, et sequere me. Nuntiavit quoque speculator, dicens: Venit nuntius ad eos, et non revertitur.

19 Misit etiam currum equorum secundum: venitque ad eos, et ait: Hæc dicit rex: Numquid pax est? Et ait Jehu: Quid tibi et paci? transi, et sequere me.

20 Nuntiavit autem speculator, dicens: Venit usque ad eos, et non revertitur: est autem incessus quasi incessus Jehu filii Namsi, præceps enim graditur.

21 Et ait Joram: Junge currum. Junxeruntque currum ejus, et egressus est Joram rex Israël, et Ochozias rex Juda, singuli in curribus suis, egressique sunt in occursum Jehu, et invenerunt eum in agro Naboth Jezrahelitæ.

22 Cumque vidisset Joram Jehu, dixit: Pax est, Jehu? At ille respondit: Quæ pax? adhuc fornicationes Jezabel matris tuæ, et veneficia ejus multa, vigent.

23 Convertit autem Joram manum suam, et fugiens ait ad Ochoziam: Insidiæ, Ochozia.

24 Porro Jehu tetendit arcum manu, et percussit Joram inter scapulas: et egressa est sagitta per cor ejus, statimque corruit in curru suo.

25 Dixitque Jehu ad Badacer ducem: Tolle, projice eum in agro Naboth Jezrahelitæ: memini enim quando ego et tu sedentes in curru sequebamur Achab patrem hujus, quod Dominus onus hoc levaverit super eum, dicens:

26 Si non pro sanguine Naboth, et pro sanguine filiorum ejus, quem vidi heri, ait Dominus, reddam tibi in agro isto, dicit Dominus. Nunc ergo tolle, et projice eum in agrum juxta verbum Domini.

27 Ochozias autem rex Juda videns hoc, fugit per viam domus horti: persecutusque est eum Jehu, et ait: Etiam hunc percutite in curru suo. Et percusserunt eum in ascensu Gaver, qui est juxta Jeblaam: qui fugit in Mageddo, et mortuus est ibi.

28 Et imposuerunt eum servi ejus super currum suum, et tulerunt in Jerusalem: sepelieruntque eum in sepulchro cum patribus suis in civitate David.

29 Anno undecimo Joram filii Achab, regnavit Ochozias super Judam,

30 venitque Jehu in Jezrahel. Porro Jezabel, introitu ejus audito, depinxit oculos suos stibio, et ornavit caput suum, et respexit per fenestram

31 ingredientem Jehu per portam, et ait: Numquid pax potest esse Zambri, qui interfecit dominum suum?

32 Levavitque Jehu faciem suam ad fenestram, et ait: Quæ est ista? et inclinaverunt se ad eum duo vel tres eunuchi.

33 At ille dixit eis: Præcipitate eam deorsum: et præcipitaverunt eam, aspersusque est sanguine paries, et equorum ungulæ conculcaverunt eam.

34 Cumque introgressus esset ut comederet biberetque, ait: Ite, et videte maledictam illam, et sepelite eam: quia filia regis est.

35 Cumque issent ut sepelirent eam, non invenerunt nisi calvariam, et pedes, et summas manus.

36 Reversique nuntiaverunt ei. Et ait Jehu: Sermo Domini est, quem locutus est per servum suum Eliam Thesbiten, dicens: In agro Jezrahel comedent canes carnes Jezabel,

37 et erunt carnes Jezabel sicut stercus super faciem terræ in agro Jezrahel, ita ut prætereuntes dicant: Hæccine est illa Jezabel?
