2 Kings 13


1  In the three7969 and twentieth6242 year8141 of Joash3101 the son1121 of Ahaziah274 king4428 of Judah3063 Jehoahaz3059 the son1121 of Jehu3058 began to reign4427 over5921 Israel3478 in Samaria,8111 and reigned seventeen7651 6240 years.8141

2  And he did6213 that which was evil7451 in the sight5869 of the LORD,3068 and followed1980 310 the sins2403 of Jeroboam3379 the son1121 of Nebat,5028 which834 made 853 Israel3478 to sin;2398 he departed5493 not3808 therefrom.4480

3  And the anger639 of the LORD3068 was kindled2734 against Israel,3478 and he delivered5414 them into the hand3027 of Hazael2371 king4428 of Syria,758 and into the hand3027 of Ben-hadad1130 the son1121 of Hazael,2371 all3605 their days.3117

4  And Jehoahaz3059 besought2470 853 the LORD,6440 3068 and the LORD3068 hearkened8085 unto413 him: for3588 he saw7200 853 the oppression3906 of Israel,3478 because3588 the king4428 of Syria758 oppressed3905 them.

5  (And the LORD3068 gave5414 Israel3478 a savior,3467 so that they went out3318 from under4480 8478 the hand3027 of the Syrians:758 and the children1121 of Israel3478 dwelt3427 in their tents,168 as formerly.8543 8032

6  Nevertheless389 they departed5493 not3808 from the sins4480 2403 of the house1004 of Jeroboam,3379 who834 made 853 Israel3478 sin,2398 but walked1980 therein: and there remained5975 the grove842 also1571 in Samaria.)8111

7  Neither3588 3808 did he leave7604 of the people5971 to Jehoahaz3059 but3588 518 fifty2572 horsemen,6571 and ten6235 chariots,7393 and ten6235 thousand505 footmen;7273 for3588 the king4428 of Syria758 had destroyed6 them, and had made7760 them like the dust6083 by threshing.1758

8  Now the rest3499 of the acts1697 of Jehoahaz,3059 and all3605 that834 he did,6213 and his might,1369 are they1992 not3808 written3789 in5921 the book5612 of the chronicles1697 3117 of the kings4428 of Israel?3478

9  And Jehoahaz3059 slept7901 with5973 his fathers;1 and they buried6912 him in Samaria:8111 and Joash3101 his son1121 reigned4427 in his stead.8478

10  In the thirty7970 and seventh7651 year8141 of Joash3101 king4428 of Judah3063 began Jehoash3060 the son1121 of Jehoahaz3059 to reign4427 over5921 Israel3478 in Samaria,8111 and reigned sixteen8337 6240 years.8141

11  And he did6213 that which was evil7451 in the sight5869 of the LORD;3068 he departed5493 not3808 from all4480 3605 the sins2403 of Jeroboam3379 the son1121 of Nebat,5028 who834 made 853 Israel3478 sin:2398 but he walked1980 therein.

12  And the rest3499 of the acts1697 of Joash,3101 and all3605 that834 he did,6213 and his might1369 wherewith834 he fought3898 against5973 Amaziah558 king4428 of Judah,3063 are they1992 not3808 written3789 in5921 the book5612 of the chronicles1697 3117 of the kings4428 of Israel?3478

13  And Joash3101 slept7901 with5973 his fathers;1 and Jeroboam3379 sat3427 upon5921 his throne:3678 and Joash3101 was buried6912 in Samaria8111 with5973 the kings4428 of Israel.3478

14  Now Elisha477 was fallen sick2470 of854 his sickness2483 whereof834 he died.4191 And Joash3101 the king4428 of Israel3478 came down3381 unto413 him, and wept1058 over5921 his face,6440 and said,559 O my father,1 my father,1 the chariot7393 of Israel,3478 and the horsemen6571 thereof.

15  And Elisha477 said559 unto him, Take3947 bow7198 and arrows.2671 And he took3947 unto413 him bow7198 and arrows.2671

16  And he said559 to the king4428 of Israel,3478 Put7392 thine hand3027 upon5921 the bow.7198 And he put7392 his hand3027 upon it: and Elisha477 put7760 his hands3027 upon5921 the king's4428 hands.3027

17  And he said,559 Open6605 the window2474 eastward.6924 And he opened6605 it. Then Elisha477 said,559 Shoot.3384 And he shot.3384 And he said,559 The arrow2671 of the LORD's3068 deliverance,8668 and the arrow2671 of deliverance8668 from Syria:758 for thou shalt smite5221 853 the Syrians758 in Aphek,663 till5704 thou have consumed3615 them.

18  And he said,559 Take3947 the arrows.2671 And he took3947 them. And he said559 unto the king4428 of Israel,3478 Smite5221 upon the ground.776 And he smote5221 thrice,7969 6471 and stayed.5975

19  And the man376 of God430 was wroth7107 with5921 him, and said,559 Thou shouldest have smitten5221 five2568 or176 six8337 times;6471 then227 hadst thou smitten5221 853 Syria758 till5704 thou hadst consumed3615 it: whereas now6258 thou shalt smite5221 853 Syria758 but thrice.7969 6471

20  And Elisha477 died,4191 and they buried6912 him. And the bands1416 of the Moabites4124 invaded935 the land776 at the coming in935 of the year.8141

21  And it came to pass,1961 as they1992 were burying6912 a man,376 that, behold,2009 they spied7200 853 a band1416 of men; and they cast7993 853 the man376 into the sepulcher6913 of Elisha:477 and when the man376 was let down,1980 and touched5060 the bones6106 of Elisha,477 he revived,2421 and stood up6965 on5921 his feet.7272

22  But Hazael2371 king4428 of Syria758 oppressed3905 853 Israel3478 all3605 the days3117 of Jehoahaz.3059

23  And the LORD3068 was gracious2603 unto them, and had compassion on7355 them, and had respect6437 unto413 them, because4616 of his covenant1285 with854 Abraham,85 Isaac,3327 and Jacob,3290 and would14 not3808 destroy7843 them, neither3808 cast7993 he them from4480 5921 his presence6440 as5704 yet.6258

24  So Hazael2371 king4428 of Syria758 died;4191 and Ben-hadad1130 his son1121 reigned4427 in his stead.8478

25  And Jehoash3060 the son1121 of Jehoahaz3059 took3947 again7725 out of the hand4480 3027 of Ben-hadad1130 the son1121 of Hazael2371 853 the cities,5892 which834 he had taken3947 out of the hand4480 3027 of Jehoahaz3059 his father1 by war.4421 Three7969 times6471 did Joash3101 beat5221 him, and recovered7725 853 the cities5892 of Israel.3478


1 ἐν ἔτει εἰκοστῷ καὶ τρίτῳ ἔτει τῷ Ιωας υἱῷ Οχοζιου βασιλεῖ Ιουδα ἐβασίλευσεν Ιωαχας υἱὸς Ιου ἐν Σαμαρείᾳ ἑπτακαίδεκα ἔτη

2 καὶ ἐποίησεν τὸ πονηρὸν ἐν ὀφθαλμοῖς κυρίου καὶ ἐπορεύθη ὀπίσω ἁμαρτιῶν Ιεροβοαμ υἱοῦ Ναβατ ὃς ἐξήμαρτεν τὸν Ισραηλ οὐκ ἀπέστη ἀπ᾽ αὐτῶν

3 καὶ ὠργίσθη θυμῷ κύριος ἐν τῷ Ισραηλ καὶ ἔδωκεν αὐτοὺς ἐν χειρὶ Αζαηλ βασιλέως Συρίας καὶ ἐν χειρὶ υἱοῦ Αδερ υἱοῦ Αζαηλ πάσας τὰς ἡμέρας

4 καὶ ἐδεήθη Ιωαχας τοῦ προσώπου κυρίου καὶ ἐπήκουσεν αὐτοῦ κύριος ὅτι εἶδεν τὴν θλῖψιν Ισραηλ ὅτι ἔθλιψεν αὐτοὺς βασιλεὺς Συρίας

5 καὶ ἔδωκεν κύριος σωτηρίαν τῷ Ισραηλ καὶ ἐξῆλθεν ὑποκάτωθεν χειρὸς Συρίας καὶ ἐκάθισαν οἱ υἱοὶ Ισραηλ ἐν τοῖς σκηνώμασιν αὐτῶν καθὼς ἐχθὲς καὶ τρίτης

6 πλὴν οὐκ ἀπέστησαν ἀπὸ ἁμαρτιῶν οἴκου Ιεροβοαμ ὃς ἐξήμαρτεν τὸν Ισραηλ ἐν αὐταῖς ἐπορεύθησαν καί γε τὸ ἄλσος ἐστάθη ἐν Σαμαρείᾳ

7 ὅτι οὐχ ὑπελείφθη τῷ Ιωαχας λαὸς ἀλλ᾽ ἢ πεντήκοντα ἱππεῖς καὶ δέκα ἅρματα καὶ δέκα χιλιάδες πεζῶν ὅτι ἀπώλεσεν αὐτοὺς βασιλεὺς Συρίας καὶ ἔθεντο αὐτοὺς ὡς χοῦν εἰς καταπάτησιν

8 καὶ τὰ λοιπὰ τῶν λόγων Ιωαχας καὶ πάντα ὅσα ἐποίησεν καὶ αἱ δυναστεῖαι αὐτοῦ οὐχὶ ταῦτα γεγραμμένα ἐπὶ βιβλίῳ λόγων τῶν ἡμερῶν τοῖς βασιλεῦσιν Ισραηλ

9 καὶ ἐκοιμήθη Ιωαχας μετὰ τῶν πατέρων αὐτοῦ καὶ ἔθαψαν αὐτὸν μετὰ τῶν πατέρων αὐτοῦ ἐν Σαμαρείᾳ καὶ ἐβασίλευσεν Ιωας υἱὸς αὐτοῦ ἀντ᾽ αὐτοῦ

10 ἐν ἔτει τριακοστῷ καὶ ἑβδόμῳ ἔτει τῷ Ιωας βασιλεῖ Ιουδα ἐβασίλευσεν Ιωας υἱὸς Ιωαχας ἐπὶ Ισραηλ ἐν Σαμαρείᾳ ἑκκαίδεκα ἔτη

11 καὶ ἐποίησεν τὸ πονηρὸν ἐν ὀφθαλμοῖς κυρίου οὐκ ἀπέστη ἀπὸ πάσης ἁμαρτίας Ιεροβοαμ υἱοῦ Ναβατ ὃς ἐξήμαρτεν τὸν Ισραηλ ἐν αὐταῖς ἐπορεύθη

12 καὶ τὰ λοιπὰ τῶν λόγων Ιωας καὶ πάντα ὅσα ἐποίησεν καὶ αἱ δυναστεῖαι αὐτοῦ ἃς ἐποίησεν μετὰ Αμεσσιου βασιλέως Ιουδα οὐχὶ ταῦτα γεγραμμένα ἐπὶ βιβλίῳ λόγων τῶν ἡμερῶν τοῖς βασιλεῦσιν Ισραηλ

13 καὶ ἐκοιμήθη Ιωας μετὰ τῶν πατέρων αὐτοῦ καὶ Ιεροβοαμ ἐκάθισεν ἐπὶ τοῦ θρόνου αὐτοῦ ἐν Σαμαρείᾳ μετὰ τῶν υἱῶν Ισραηλ

14 καὶ Ελισαιε ἠρρώστησεν τὴν ἀρρωστίαν αὐτοῦ δι᾽ ἣν ἀπέθανεν καὶ κατέβη πρὸς αὐτὸν Ιωας βασιλεὺς Ισραηλ καὶ ἔκλαυσεν ἐπὶ προσώπου αὐτοῦ καὶ εἶπεν πάτερ πάτερ ἅρμα Ισραηλ καὶ ἱππεὺς αὐτοῦ

15 καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῷ Ελισαιε λαβὲ τόξον καὶ βέλη καὶ ἔλαβεν πρὸς αὐτὸν τόξον καὶ βέλη

16 καὶ εἶπεν τῷ βασιλεῖ ἐπιβίβασον τὴν χεῖρά σου ἐπὶ τὸ τόξον καὶ ἐπεβίβασεν Ιωας τὴν χεῖρα αὐτοῦ ἐπὶ τὸ τόξον καὶ ἐπέθηκεν Ελισαιε τὰς χεῖρας αὐτοῦ ἐπὶ τὰς χεῖρας τοῦ βασιλέως

17 καὶ εἶπεν ἄνοιξον τὴν θυρίδα κατ᾽ ἀνατολάς καὶ ἤνοιξεν καὶ εἶπεν Ελισαιε τόξευσον καὶ ἐτόξευσεν καὶ εἶπεν βέλος σωτηρίας τῷ κυρίῳ καὶ βέλος σωτηρίας ἐν Συρίᾳ καὶ πατάξεις τὴν Συρίαν ἐν Αφεκ ἕως συντελείας

18 καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῷ Ελισαιε λαβὲ τόξα καὶ ἔλαβεν καὶ εἶπεν τῷ βασιλεῖ Ισραηλ πάταξον εἰς τὴν γῆν καὶ ἐπάταξεν ὁ βασιλεὺς τρὶς καὶ ἔστη

19 καὶ ἐλυπήθη ἐπ᾽ αὐτῷ ὁ ἄνθρωπος τοῦ θεοῦ καὶ εἶπεν εἰ ἐπάταξας πεντάκις ἢ ἑξάκις τότε ἂν ἐπάταξας τὴν Συρίαν ἕως συντελείας καὶ νῦν τρὶς πατάξεις τὴν Συρίαν

20 καὶ ἀπέθανεν Ελισαιε καὶ ἔθαψαν αὐτόν καὶ μονόζωνοι Μωαβ ἦλθον ἐν τῇ γῇ ἐλθόντος τοῦ ἐνιαυτοῦ

21 καὶ ἐγένετο αὐτῶν θαπτόντων τὸν ἄνδρα καὶ ἰδοὺ εἶδον τὸν μονόζωνον καὶ ἔρριψαν τὸν ἄνδρα ἐν τῷ τάφῳ Ελισαιε καὶ ἐπορεύθη καὶ ἥψατο τῶν ὀστέων Ελισαιε καὶ ἔζησεν καὶ ἀνέστη ἐπὶ τοὺς πόδας αὐτοῦ

22 καὶ Αζαηλ ἐξέθλιψεν τὸν Ισραηλ πάσας τὰς ἡμέρας Ιωαχας

23 καὶ ἠλέησεν κύριος αὐτοὺς καὶ οἰκτίρησεν αὐτοὺς καὶ ἐπέβλεψεν πρὸς αὐτοὺς διὰ τὴν διαθήκην αὐτοῦ τὴν μετὰ Αβρααμ καὶ Ισαακ καὶ Ιακωβ καὶ οὐκ ἠθέλησεν κύριος διαφθεῖραι αὐτοὺς καὶ οὐκ ἀπέρριψεν αὐτοὺς ἀπὸ τοῦ προσώπου αὐτοῦ

24 καὶ ἀπέθανεν Αζαηλ βασιλεὺς Συρίας καὶ ἐβασίλευσεν υἱὸς Αδερ υἱὸς αὐτοῦ ἀντ᾽ αὐτοῦ

25 καὶ ἐπέστρεψεν Ιωας υἱὸς Ιωαχας καὶ ἔλαβεν τὰς πόλεις ἐκ χειρὸς υἱοῦ Αδερ υἱοῦ Αζαηλ ἃς ἔλαβεν ἐκ χειρὸς Ιωαχας τοῦ πατρὸς αὐτοῦ ἐν τῷ πολέμῳ τρὶς ἐπάταξεν αὐτὸν Ιωας καὶ ἐπέστρεψεν τὰς πόλεις Ισραηλ

1 Anno vigesimo tertio Joas filii Ochoziæ regis Juda, regnavit Joachaz filius Jehu super Israël in Samaria decem et septem annis.

2 Et fecit malum coram Domino, secutusque est peccata Jeroboam filii Nabat, qui peccare fecit Israël, et non declinavit ab eis.

3 Iratusque est furor Domini contra Israël, et tradidit eos in manu Hazaël regis Syriæ, et in manu Benadad filii Hazaël, cunctis diebus.

4 Deprecatus est autem Joachaz faciem Domini, et audivit eum Dominus: vidit enim angustiam Israël, quia attriverat eos rex Syriæ:

5 et dedit Dominus salvatorem Israëli, et liberatus est de manu regis Syriæ: habitaveruntque filii Israël in tabernaculis suis sicut heri et nudiustertius.

6 Verumtamen non recesserunt a peccatis domus Jeroboam, qui peccare fecit Israël, sed in ipsis ambulaverunt: siquidem et lucus permansit in Samaria.

7 Et non sunt derelicti Joachaz de populo nisi quinquaginta equites, et decem currus, et decem millia peditum: interfecerat enim eos rex Syriæ, et redegerat quasi pulverem in tritura areæ.

8 Reliqua autem sermonum Joachaz, et universa quæ fecit, et fortitudo ejus, nonne hæc scripta sunt in libro sermonum dierum regum Israël?

9 Dormivitque Joachaz cum patribus suis, et sepelierunt eum in Samaria: regnavitque Joas filius ejus pro eo.

10 Anno trigesimo septimo Joas regis Juda, regnavit Joas filius Joachaz super Israël in Samaria sedecim annis.

11 Et fecit quod malum est in conspectu Domini: non declinavit ab omnibus peccatis Jeroboam filii Nabat, qui peccare fecit Israël, sed in ipsis ambulavit.

12 Reliqua autem sermonum Joas, et universa quæ fecit, et fortitudo ejus, quomodo pugnaverit contra Amasiam regem Juda, nonne hæc scripta sunt in libro sermonum dierum regum Israël?

13 Et dormivit Joas cum patribus suis: Jeroboam autem sedit super solium ejus. Porro Joas sepultus est in Samaria cum regibus Israël.

14 Eliseus autem ægrotabat infirmitate, qua et mortuus est: descenditque ad eum Joas rex Israël, et flebat coram eo, dicebatque: Pater mi, pater mi, currus Israël et auriga ejus.

15 Et ait illi Eliseus: Affer arcum et sagittas. Cumque attulisset ad eum arcum et sagittas,

16 dixit ad regem Israël: Pone manum tuam super arcum. Et cum posuisset ille manum suam, superposuit Eliseus manus suas manibus regis,

17 et ait: Aperi fenestram orientalem. Cumque aperuisset, dixit Eliseus: Jace sagittam. Et jecit. Et ait Eliseus: Sagitta salutis Domini, et sagitta salutis contra Syriam: percutiesque Syriam in Aphec, donec consumas eam.

18 Et ait: Tolle sagittas. Qui cum tulisset, rursum dixit ei: Percute jaculo terram. Et cum percussisset tribus vicibus, et stetisset,

19 iratus est vir Dei contra eum, et ait: Si percussisses quinquies, aut sexies, sive septies, percussisses Syriam usque ad consumptionem: nunc autem tribus vicibus percuties eam.

20 Mortuus est ergo Eliseus, et sepelierunt eum. Latrunculi autem de Moab venerunt in terram in ipso anno.

21 Quidam autem sepelientes hominem, viderunt latrunculos, et projecerunt cadaver in sepulchro Elisei. Quod cum tetigisset ossa Elisei, revixit homo, et stetit super pedes suos.

22 Igitur Hazaël rex Syriæ afflixit Israël cunctis diebus Joachaz:

23 et misertus est Dominus eorum, et reversus est ad eos propter pactum suum, quod habebat cum Abraham, et Isaac, et Jacob: et noluit disperdere eos, neque projicere penitus usque in præsens tempus.

24 Mortuus est autem Hazaël rex Syriæ, et regnavit Benadad filius ejus pro eo.

25 Porro Joas filius Joachaz tulit urbes de manu Benadad filii Hazaël, quas tulerat de manu Joachaz patris sui jure prælii: tribus vicibus percussit eum Joas, et reddidit civitates Israël.
