2 Chronicles 10


1  And Rehoboam7346 went1980 to Shechem:7927 for3588 to Shechem7927 were all3605 Israel3478 come935 to make him king.4427 853

2  And it came to pass,1961 when Jeroboam3379 the son1121 of Nebat,5028 who1931 was in Egypt,4714 whither834 he had fled1272 from the presence4480 6440 of Solomon8010 the king,4428 heard8085 it, that Jeroboam3379 returned7725 out of Egypt.4480 4714

3  And they sent7971 and called7121 him. So Jeroboam3379 and all3605 Israel3478 came935 and spoke1696 to413 Rehoboam,7346 saying,559

4  Thy father1 made 853 our yoke5923 grievous:7185 now6258 therefore ease7043 thou somewhat the grievous7186 servitude4480 5656 of thy father,1 and his heavy3515 yoke4480 5923 that834 he put5414 upon5921 us, and we will serve5647 thee.

5  And he said559 unto413 them, Come again7725 unto413 me after5750 three7969 days.3117 And the people5971 departed.1980

6  And king4428 Rehoboam7346 took counsel3289 with854 the old men2205 that834 had1961 stood5975 before6440 Solomon8010 his father1 while he yet lived,1961 2416 saying,559 What349 counsel give3289 ye859 me to return7725 answer1697 to this2088 people?5971

7  And they spoke1696 unto413 him, saying,559 If518 thou be1961 kind2896 to this2088 people,5971 and please7521 them, and speak1696 good2896 words1697 to413 them, they will be1961 thy servants5650 forever.3605 3117

8  But he forsook5800 853 the counsel6098 which834 the old men2205 gave3289 him, and took counsel3289 with854 the young men3206 that834 were brought up1431 with854 him, that stood5975 before6440 him.

9  And he said559 unto413 them, What4100 advice give3289 ye859 that we may return7725 answer1697 853 to this2088 people,5971 which834 have spoken1696 to413 me, saying,559 Ease7043 somewhat4480 the yoke5923 that834 thy father1 did put5414 upon5921 us?

10  And the young men3206 that834 were brought up1431 with854 him spoke1696 unto854 him, saying,559 Thus3541 shalt thou answer559 the people5971 that834 spoke1696 unto413 thee, saying,559 Thy father1 made our yoke heavy,3513 853 5923 but make thou it somewhat lighter859 7043 for4480 5921 us; thus3541 shalt thou say559 unto413 them, My little6995 finger shall be thicker5666 than my father's1 loins.4480 4975

11  For whereas6258 my father1 put6006 a heavy3515 yoke5923 upon5921 you, I589 will put more3254 to5921 your yoke:5923 my father1 chastised3256 you with whips,7752 but I589 will chastise you with scorpions.6137

12  So Jeroboam3379 and all3605 the people5971 came935 to413 Rehoboam7346 on the third7992 day,3117 as834 the king4428 bade,1696 saying,559 Come again7725 to413 me on the third7992 day.3117

13  And the king4428 answered6030 them roughly;7186 and king4428 Rehoboam7346 forsook5800 853 the counsel6098 of the old men,2205

14  And answered1696 413 them after the advice6098 of the young men,3206 saying,559 My father1 made your yoke heavy,3513 853 5923 but I589 will add3254 thereto:5921 my father1 chastised3256 you with whips,7752 but I589 will chastise you with scorpions.6137

15  So the king4428 hearkened8085 not3808 unto413 the people:5971 for3588 the cause5252 was1961 of4480 5973 God,430 that4616 the LORD3068 might perform6965 853 his word,1697 which834 he spoke1696 by the hand3027 of Ahijah281 the Shilonite7888 to413 Jeroboam3379 the son1121 of Nebat.5028

16  And when all3605 Israel3478 saw that3588 the king4428 would not3808 hearken8085 unto them, the people5971 answered7725 853 the king,4428 saying,559 What4100 portion2506 have we in David?1732 and we have none3808 inheritance5159 in the son1121 of Jesse:3448 every man376 to your tents,168 O Israel:3478 and now,6258 David,1732 see7200 to thine own house.1004 So all3605 Israel3478 went1980 to their tents.168

17  But as for the children1121 of Israel3478 that dwelt3427 in the cities5892 of Judah,3063 Rehoboam7346 reigned4427 over5921 them.

18  Then king4428 Rehoboam7346 sent7971 853 Hadoram1913 that834 was over5921 the tribute;4522 and the children1121 of Israel3478 stoned7275 him with stones,68 that he died.4191 But king4428 Rehoboam7346 made speed553 to get him up5927 to his chariot,4818 to flee5127 to Jerusalem.3389

19  And Israel3478 rebelled6586 against the house1004 of David1732 unto5704 this2088 day.3117


1 καὶ ἦλθεν Ροβοαμ εἰς Συχεμ ὅτι εἰς Συχεμ ἤρχετο πᾶς Ισραηλ βασιλεῦσαι αὐτόν

2 καὶ ἐγένετο ὡς ἤκουσεν Ιεροβοαμ υἱὸς Ναβατ καὶ αὐτὸς ἐν Αἰγύπτῳ ὡς ἔφυγεν ἀπὸ προσώπου Σαλωμων τοῦ βασιλέως καὶ κατῴκησεν Ιεροβοαμ ἐν Αἰγύπτῳ καὶ ἀπέστρεψεν Ιεροβοαμ ἐξ Αἰγύπτου

3 καὶ ἀπέστειλαν καὶ ἐκάλεσαν αὐτόν καὶ ἦλθεν Ιεροβοαμ καὶ πᾶσα ἡ ἐκκλησία Ισραηλ πρὸς Ροβοαμ λέγοντες

4 ὁ πατήρ σου ἐσκλήρυνεν τὸν ζυγὸν ἡμῶν καὶ νῦν ἄφες ἀπὸ τῆς δουλείας τοῦ πατρός σου τῆς σκληρᾶς καὶ ἀπὸ τοῦ ζυγοῦ αὐτοῦ τοῦ βαρέος οὗ ἔδωκεν ἐφ᾽ ἡμᾶς καὶ δουλεύσομέν σοι

5 καὶ εἶπεν αὐτοῖς πορεύεσθε ἕως τριῶν ἡμερῶν καὶ ἔρχεσθε πρός με καὶ ἀπῆλθεν ὁ λαός

6 καὶ συνήγαγεν ὁ βασιλεὺς Ροβοαμ τοὺς πρεσβυτέρους τοὺς ἑστηκότας ἐναντίον Σαλωμων τοῦ πατρὸς αὐτοῦ ἐν τῷ ζῆν αὐτὸν λέγων πῶς ὑμεῖς βουλεύεσθε τοῦ ἀποκριθῆναι τῷ λαῷ τούτῳ λόγον

7 καὶ ἐλάλησαν αὐτῷ λέγοντες ἐὰν ἐν τῇ σήμερον γένῃ εἰς ἀγαθὸν τῷ λαῷ τούτῳ καὶ εὐδοκήσῃς καὶ λαλήσῃς αὐτοῖς λόγους ἀγαθούς καὶ ἔσονταί σοι παῖδες πάσας τὰς ἡμέρας

8 καὶ κατέλιπεν τὴν βουλὴν τῶν πρεσβυτέρων οἳ συνεβουλεύσαντο αὐτῷ καὶ συνεβουλεύσατο μετὰ τῶν παιδαρίων τῶν συνεκτραφέντων μετ᾽ αὐτοῦ τῶν ἑστηκότων ἐναντίον αὐτοῦ

9 καὶ εἶπεν αὐτοῖς τί ὑμεῖς βουλεύεσθε καὶ ἀποκριθήσομαι λόγον τῷ λαῷ τούτῳ οἳ ἐλάλησαν πρός με λέγοντες ἄνες ἀπὸ τοῦ ζυγοῦ οὗ ἔδωκεν ὁ πατήρ σου ἐφ᾽ ἡμᾶς

10 καὶ ἐλάλησαν αὐτῷ τὰ παιδάρια τὰ ἐκτραφέντα μετ᾽ αὐτοῦ οὕτως λαλήσεις τῷ λαῷ τῷ λαλήσαντι πρὸς σὲ λέγων ὁ πατήρ σου ἐβάρυνεν τὸν ζυγὸν ἡμῶν καὶ σὺ ἄφες ἀφ᾽ ἡμῶν οὕτως ἐρεῖς ὁ μικρὸς δάκτυλός μου παχύτερος τῆς ὀσφύος τοῦ πατρός μου

11 καὶ νῦν ὁ πατήρ μου ἐπαίδευσεν ὑμᾶς ζυγῷ βαρεῖ καὶ ἐγὼ προσθήσω ἐπὶ τὸν ζυγὸν ὑμῶν ὁ πατήρ μου ἐπαίδευσεν ὑμᾶς ἐν μάστιγξιν καὶ ἐγὼ παιδεύσω ὑμᾶς ἐν σκορπίοις

12 καὶ ἦλθεν Ιεροβοαμ καὶ πᾶς ὁ λαὸς πρὸς Ροβοαμ τῇ ἡμέρᾳ τῇ τρίτῃ ὡς ἐλάλησεν ὁ βασιλεὺς λέγων ἐπιστρέψατε πρός με τῇ ἡμέρᾳ τῇ τρίτῃ

13 καὶ ἀπεκρίθη ὁ βασιλεὺς σκληρά καὶ ἐγκατέλιπεν ὁ βασιλεὺς Ροβοαμ τὴν βουλὴν τῶν πρεσβυτέρων

14 καὶ ἐλάλησεν πρὸς αὐτοὺς κατὰ τὴν βουλὴν τῶν νεωτέρων λέγων ὁ πατήρ μου ἐβάρυνεν τὸν ζυγὸν ὑμῶν καὶ ἐγὼ προσθήσω ἐπ᾽ αὐτόν ὁ πατήρ μου ἐπαίδευσεν ὑμᾶς ἐν μάστιγξιν καὶ ἐγὼ παιδεύσω ὑμᾶς ἐν σκορπίοις

15 καὶ οὐκ ἤκουσεν ὁ βασιλεὺς τοῦ λαοῦ ὅτι ἦν μεταστροφὴ παρὰ τοῦ θεοῦ λέγων ἀνέστησεν κύριος τὸν λόγον αὐτοῦ ὃν ἐλάλησεν ἐν χειρὶ Αχια τοῦ Σηλωνίτου περὶ Ιεροβοαμ υἱοῦ Ναβατ

16 καὶ παντὸς Ισραηλ ὅτι οὐκ ἤκουσεν ὁ βασιλεὺς αὐτῶν καὶ ἀπεκρίθη ὁ λαὸς πρὸς τὸν βασιλέα λέγων τίς ἡμῖν μερὶς ἐν Δαυιδ καὶ κληρονομία ἐν υἱῷ Ιεσσαι εἰς τὰ σκηνώματά σου Ισραηλ νῦν βλέπε τὸν οἶκόν σου Δαυιδ καὶ ἐπορεύθη πᾶς Ισραηλ εἰς τὰ σκηνώματα αὐτοῦ

17 καὶ ἄνδρες Ισραηλ οἱ κατοικοῦντες ἐν πόλεσιν Ιουδα καὶ ἐβασίλευσεν ἐπ᾽ αὐτῶν Ροβοαμ

18 καὶ ἀπέστειλεν ὁ βασιλεὺς Ροβοαμ τὸν Αδωνιραμ τὸν ἐπὶ τοῦ φόρου καὶ ἐλιθοβόλησαν αὐτὸν οἱ υἱοὶ Ισραηλ λίθοις καὶ ἀπέθανεν καὶ ὁ βασιλεὺς Ροβοαμ ἔσπευσεν τοῦ ἀναβῆναι εἰς τὸ ἅρμα τοῦ φυγεῖν εἰς Ιερουσαλημ

19 καὶ ἠθέτησεν Ισραηλ ἐν τῷ οἴκῳ Δαυιδ ἕως τῆς ἡμέρας ταύτης

1 Profectus est autem Roboam in Sichem: illuc enim cunctus Israël convenerat ut constituerent eum regem.

2 Quod cum audisset Jeroboam filius Nabat, qui erat in Ægypto (fugerat quippe illuc ante Salomonem), statim reversus est.

3 Vocaveruntque eum, et venit cum universo Israël: et locuti sunt ad Roboam, dicentes:

4 Pater tuus durissimo jugo nos pressit: tu leviora impera patre tuo, qui nobis imposuit gravem servitutem, et paululum de onere subleva, ut serviamus tibi.

5 Qui ait: Post tres dies revertimini ad me. Cumque abiisset populus,

6 iniit consilium cum senibus qui steterant coram patre ejus Salomone dum adhuc viveret, dicens: Quid datis consilii ut respondeam populo?

7 Qui dixerunt ei: Si placueris populo huic, et leniveris eos verbis clementibus, servient tibi omni tempore.

8 At ille reliquit consilium senum, et cum juvenibus tractare cœpit, qui cum eo nutriti fuerant, et erant in comitatu illius.

9 Dixitque ad eos: Quid vobis videtur? vel respondere quid debeo populo huic, qui dixit mihi: Subleva jugum quod imposuit nobis pater tuus?

10 At illi responderunt ut juvenes, et nutriti cum eo in deliciis, atque dixerunt: Sic loqueris populo qui dixit tibi: Pater tuus aggravavit jugum nostrum, tu subleva: et sic respondebis ei: Minimus digitus meus grossior est lumbis patris mei.

11 Pater meus imposuit vobis grave jugum, et ego majus pondus apponam; pater meus cecidit vos flagellis, ego vero cædam vos scorpionibus.

12 Venit ergo Jeroboam et universus populus ad Roboam die tertio, sicut præceperat eis.

13 Responditque rex dura, derelicto consilio seniorum:

14 locutusque est juxta juvenum voluntatem: Pater meus grave vobis imposuit jugum, quod ego gravius faciam; pater meus cecidit vos flagellis, ego vero cædam vos scorpionibus.

15 Et non acquievit populi precibus: erat enim voluntatis Dei ut compleretur sermo ejus quem locutus fuerat per manum Ahiæ Silonitis ad Jeroboam filium Nabat.

16 Populus autem universus rege duriora dicente, sic locutus est ad eum: Non est nobis pars in David, neque hæreditas in filio Isai. Revertere in tabernacula tua, Israël; tu autem pasce domum tuam David. Et abiit Israël in tabernacula sua.

17 Super filios autem Israël qui habitabant in civitatibus Juda, regnavit Roboam.

18 Misitque rex Roboam Aduram, qui præerat tributis, et lapidaverunt eum filii Israël, et mortuus est: porro rex Roboam currum festinavit ascendere, et fugit in Jerusalem.

19 Recessitque Israël a domo David, usque ad diem hanc.
