2 Chronicles 25


1  Amaziah558 was twenty6242 and five2568 years8141 old1121 when he began to reign,4427 and he reigned4427 twenty6242 and nine8672 years8141 in Jerusalem.3389 And his mother's517 name8034 was Jehoaddan3086 of Jerusalem.4480 3389

2  And he did6213 that which was right3477 in the sight5869 of the LORD,3068 but7535 not3808 with a perfect8003 heart.3824

3  Now it came to pass,1961 when834 the kingdom4467 was established2388 to5921 him, that he slew2026 853 his servants5650 that had killed5221 853 the king4428 his father.1

4  But he slew4191 not3808 their children,1121 but3588 did as it is written3789 in the law8451 in the book5612 of Moses,4872 where834 the LORD3068 commanded,6680 saying,559 The fathers1 shall not3808 die4191 for5921 the children,1121 neither3808 shall the children1121 die4191 for5921 the fathers,1 but3588 every man376 shall die4191 for his own sin.2399

5  Moreover Amaziah558 gathered Judah together,6908 853 3063 and made5975 them captains8269 over thousands,505 and captains8269 over hundreds,3967 according to the houses1004 of their fathers,1 throughout all3605 Judah3063 and Benjamin:1144 and he numbered6485 them from twenty6242 years8141 old4480 1121 and above,4605 and found4672 them three7969 hundred3967 thousand505 choice977 men, able to go forth3318 to war,6635 that could handle270 spear7420 and shield.6793

6  He hired7936 also a hundred3967 thousand505 mighty men1368 of valor2428 out of Israel4480 3478 for a hundred3967 talents3603 of silver.3701

7  But there came935 a man376 of God430 to413 him, saying,559 O king,4428 let not408 the army6635 of Israel3478 go935 with5973 thee; for3588 the LORD3068 is not369 with5973 Israel,3478 to wit, with all3605 the children1121 of Ephraim.669

8  But3588 if518 thou859 wilt go,935 do6213 it, be strong2388 for the battle:4421 God430 shall make thee fall3782 before6440 the enemy:341 for3588 God430 hath3426 power3581 to help,5826 and to cast down.3782

9  And Amaziah558 said559 to the man376 of God,430 But what4100 shall we do6213 for the hundred3967 talents3603 which834 I have given5414 to the army1416 of Israel?3478 And the man376 of God430 answered,559 The LORD3068 is3426 able to give5414 thee much more7235 than this.4480 2088

10  Then Amaziah558 separated914 them, to wit, the army1416 that834 was come935 to413 him out of Ephraim,4480 669 to go1980 home4725 again: wherefore their anger639 was greatly3966 kindled2734 against Judah,3063 and they returned7725 home4725 in great2750 anger.639

11  And Amaziah558 strengthened himself,2388 and led forth5090 853 his people,5971 and went1980 to the valley1516 of salt,4417 and smote5221 853 of the children1121 of Seir8165 ten6235 thousand.505

12  And other ten6235 thousand505 left alive2416 did the children1121 of Judah3063 carry away captive,7617 and brought935 them unto the top7218 of the rock,5553 and cast them down7993 from the top4480 7218 of the rock,5553 that they all3605 were broken in pieces.1234

13  But the soldiers1121 of the army1416 which834 Amaziah558 sent back,7725 that they should not go4480 1980 with5973 him to battle,4421 fell upon6584 the cities5892 of Judah,3063 from Samaria4480 8111 even unto5704 Beth-horon,1032 and smote5221 three7969 thousand505 of4480 them, and took962 much7227 spoil.961

14  Now it came to pass,1961 after that310 Amaziah558 was come935 from the slaughter4480 5221 853 of the Edomites,130 that he brought935 853 the gods430 of the children1121 of Seir,8165 and set them up5975 to be his gods,430 and bowed down himself7812 before6440 them, and burned incense6999 unto them.

15  Wherefore the anger639 of the LORD3068 was kindled2734 against Amaziah,558 and he sent7971 unto413 him a prophet,5030 which said559 unto him, Why4100 hast thou sought after1875 853 the gods430 of the people,5971 which834 could not3808 deliver5337 853 their own people5971 out of thine hand?4480 3027

16  And it came to pass,1961 as he talked1696 with413 him, that the king said559 unto him, Art thou made5414 of the king's4428 counsel?3289 forbear;2308 why4100 shouldest thou be smitten?5221 Then the prophet5030 forbore,2308 and said,559 I know3045 that3588 God430 hath determined3289 to destroy7843 thee, because3588 thou hast done6213 this,2063 and hast not3808 hearkened8085 unto my counsel.6098

17  Then Amaziah558 king4428 of Judah3063 took advice,3289 and sent7971 to413 Joash,3101 the son1121 of Jehoahaz,3059 the son1121 of Jehu,3058 king4428 of Israel,3478 saying,559 Come,1980 let us see one another7200 in the face.6440

18  And Joash3101 king4428 of Israel3478 sent7971 to413 Amaziah558 king4428 of Judah,3063 saying,559 The thistle2336 that834 was in Lebanon3844 sent7971 to413 the cedar730 that834 was in Lebanon,3844 saying,559 Give5414 853 thy daughter1323 to my son1121 to wife:802 and there passed by5674 a wild7704 beast2416 that834 was in Lebanon,3844 and trod down7429 853 the thistle.2336

19  Thou sayest,559 Lo,2009 thou hast smitten5221 853 the Edomites;123 and thine heart3820 lifteth thee up5375 to boast:3513 abide3427 now6258 at home;1004 why4100 shouldest thou meddle1624 to thine hurt,7451 that thou shouldest fall,5307 even thou,859 and Judah3063 with5973 thee?

20  But Amaziah558 would not3808 hear;8085 for3588 it1931 came of God,4480 430 that4616 he might deliver5414 them into the hand3027 of their enemies, because3588 they sought after1875 853 the gods430 of Edom.123

21  So Joash3101 the king4428 of Israel3478 went up;5927 and they saw one another7200 in the face,6440 both he1931 and Amaziah558 king4428 of Judah,3063 at Beth-shemesh,1053 which834 belongeth to Judah.3063

22  And Judah3063 was put to the worse5062 before6440 Israel,3478 and they fled5127 every man376 to his tent.168

23  And Joash3101 the king4428 of Israel3478 took8610 Amaziah558 king4428 of Judah,3063 the son1121 of Joash,3101 the son1121 of Jehoahaz,3059 at Beth-shemesh,1053 and brought935 him to Jerusalem,3389 and broke down6555 the wall2346 of Jerusalem3389 from the gate4480 8179 of Ephraim669 to5704 the corner6438 gate,8179 four702 hundred3967 cubits.520

24  And he took all3605 the gold2091 and the silver,3701 and 853 all3605 the vessels3627 that were found4672 in the house1004 of God430 with5973 Obed-edom,5654 and the treasures214 of the king's4428 house,1004 853 the hostages1121 8594 also, and returned7725 to Samaria.8111

25  And Amaziah558 the son1121 of Joash3101 king4428 of Judah3063 lived2421 after310 the death4194 of Joash3101 son1121 of Jehoahaz3059 king4428 of Israel3478 fifteen2568 6240 years.8141

26  Now the rest3499 of the acts1697 of Amaziah,558 first7223 and last,314 behold,2009 are they not3808 written3789 in5921 the book5612 of the kings4428 of Judah3063 and Israel?3478

27  Now after the time4480 6256 that834 Amaziah558 did turn away5493 from following4480 310 the LORD3068 they made7194 a conspiracy7195 against5921 him in Jerusalem;3389 and he fled5127 to Lachish:3923 but they sent7971 to Lachish3923 after310 him, and slew4191 him there.8033

28  And they brought5375 him upon5921 horses,5483 and buried6912 him with5973 his fathers1 in the city5892 of Judah.3063


1 ὢν πέντε καὶ εἴκοσι ἐτῶν ἐβασίλευσεν Αμασιας καὶ εἴκοσι ἐννέα ἔτη ἐβασίλευσεν ἐν Ιερουσαλημ καὶ ὄνομα τῇ μητρὶ αὐτοῦ Ιωαδεν ἀπὸ Ιερουσαλημ

2 καὶ ἐποίησεν τὸ εὐθὲς ἐνώπιον κυρίου ἀλλ᾽ οὐκ ἐν καρδίᾳ πλήρει

3 καὶ ἐγένετο ὡς κατέστη ἡ βασιλεία ἐν χειρὶ αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐθανάτωσεν τοὺς παῖδας αὐτοῦ τοὺς φονεύσαντας τὸν βασιλέα πατέρα αὐτοῦ

4 καὶ τοὺς υἱοὺς αὐτῶν οὐκ ἀπέκτεινεν κατὰ τὴν διαθήκην τοῦ νόμου κυρίου καθὼς γέγραπται ὡς ἐνετείλατο κύριος λέγων οὐκ ἀποθανοῦνται πατέρες ὑπὲρ τέκνων καὶ υἱοὶ οὐκ ἀποθανοῦνται ὑπὲρ πατέρων ἀλλ᾽ ἢ ἕκαστος τῇ ἑαυτοῦ ἁμαρτίᾳ ἀποθανοῦνται

5 καὶ συνήγαγεν Αμασιας τὸν οἶκον Ιουδα καὶ ἀνέστησεν αὐτοὺς κατ᾽ οἴκους πατριῶν αὐτῶν εἰς χιλιάρχους καὶ ἑκατοντάρχους ἐν παντὶ Ιουδα καὶ Ιερουσαλημ καὶ ἠρίθμησεν αὐτοὺς ἀπὸ εἰκοσαετοῦς καὶ ἐπάνω καὶ εὗρεν αὐτοὺς τριακοσίας χιλιάδας δυνατοὺς ἐξελθεῖν εἰς πόλεμον κρατοῦντας δόρυ καὶ θυρεόν

6 καὶ ἐμισθώσατο ἀπὸ Ισραηλ ἑκατὸν χιλιάδας δυνατοὺς ἰσχύι ἑκατὸν ταλάντων ἀργυρίου

7 καὶ ἄνθρωπος τοῦ θεοῦ ἦλθεν πρὸς αὐτὸν λέγων βασιλεῦ οὐ πορεύσεται μετὰ σοῦ δύναμις Ισραηλ ὅτι οὐκ ἔστιν κύριος μετὰ Ισραηλ πάντων τῶν υἱῶν Εφραιμ

8 ὅτι ἐὰν ὑπολάβῃς κατισχῦσαι ἐν τούτοις καὶ τροπώσεταί σε κύριος ἐναντίον τῶν ἐχθρῶν ὅτι ἔστιν παρὰ κυρίου καὶ ἰσχῦσαι καὶ τροπώσασθαι

9 καὶ εἶπεν Αμασιας τῷ ἀνθρώπῳ τοῦ θεοῦ καὶ τί ποιήσω τὰ ἑκατὸν τάλαντα ἃ ἔδωκα τῇ δυνάμει Ισραηλ καὶ εἶπεν ὁ ἄνθρωπος τοῦ θεοῦ ἔστιν τῷ κυρίῳ δοῦναί σοι πλεῖστα τούτων

10 καὶ διεχώρισεν Αμασιας τῇ δυνάμει τῇ ἐλθούσῃ πρὸς αὐτὸν ἀπὸ Εφραιμ ἀπελθεῖν εἰς τὸν τόπον αὐτῶν καὶ ἐθυμώθησαν σφόδρα ἐπὶ Ιουδαν καὶ ἐπέστρεψαν εἰς τὸν τόπον αὐτῶν ἐν ὀργῇ θυμοῦ

11 καὶ Αμασιας κατίσχυσεν καὶ παρέλαβεν τὸν λαὸν αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐπορεύθη εἰς τὴν κοιλάδα τῶν ἁλῶν καὶ ἐπάταξεν ἐκεῖ τοὺς υἱοὺς Σηιρ δέκα χιλιάδας

12 καὶ δέκα χιλιάδας ἐζώγρησαν οἱ υἱοὶ Ιουδα καὶ ἔφερον αὐτοὺς ἐπὶ τὸ ἄκρον τοῦ κρημνοῦ καὶ κατεκρήμνιζον αὐτοὺς ἀπὸ τοῦ ἄκρου τοῦ κρημνοῦ καὶ πάντες διερρήγνυντο

13 καὶ οἱ υἱοὶ τῆς δυνάμεως οὓς ἀπέστρεψεν Αμασιας τοῦ μὴ πορευθῆναι μετ᾽ αὐτοῦ εἰς πόλεμον καὶ ἐπέθεντο ἐπὶ τὰς πόλεις Ιουδα ἀπὸ Σαμαρείας ἕως Βαιθωρων καὶ ἐπάταξαν ἐν αὐτοῖς τρεῖς χιλιάδας καὶ ἐσκύλευσαν σκῦλα πολλά

14 καὶ ἐγένετο μετὰ τὸ ἐλθεῖν Αμασιαν πατάξαντα τὴν Ιδουμαίαν καὶ ἤνεγκεν πρὸς αὐτοὺς τοὺς θεοὺς υἱῶν Σηιρ καὶ ἔστησεν αὐτοὺς ἑαυτῷ εἰς θεοὺς καὶ ἐναντίον αὐτῶν προσεκύνει καὶ αὐτοῖς αὐτὸς ἔθυεν

15 καὶ ἐγένετο ὀργὴ κυρίου ἐπὶ Αμασιαν καὶ ἀπέστειλεν αὐτῷ προφήτας καὶ εἶπαν αὐτῷ τί ἐζήτησας τοὺς θεοὺς τοῦ λαοῦ οἳ οὐκ ἐξείλαντο τὸν λαὸν αὐτῶν ἐκ χειρός σου

16 καὶ ἐγένετο ἐν τῷ λαλῆσαι αὐτῷ καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῷ μὴ σύμβουλον τοῦ βασιλέως δέδωκά σε πρόσεχε μὴ μαστιγωθῇς καὶ ἐσιώπησεν ὁ προφήτης καὶ εἶπεν ὅτι γινώσκω ὅτι ἐβούλετο ἐπὶ σοὶ τοῦ καταφθεῖραί σε ὅτι ἐποίησας τοῦτο καὶ οὐκ ἐπήκουσας τῆς συμβουλίας μου

17 καὶ ἐβουλεύσατο Αμασιας καὶ ἀπέστειλεν πρὸς Ιωας υἱὸν Ιωαχαζ υἱοῦ Ιου βασιλέα Ισραηλ λέγων δεῦρο ὀφθῶμεν προσώποις

18 καὶ ἀπέστειλεν Ιωας βασιλεὺς Ισραηλ πρὸς Αμασιαν βασιλέα Ιουδα λέγων ὁ αχουχ ὁ ἐν τῷ Λιβάνῳ ἀπέστειλεν πρὸς τὴν κέδρον τὴν ἐν τῷ Λιβάνῳ λέγων δὸς τὴν θυγατέρα σου τῷ υἱῷ μου εἰς γυναῖκα καὶ ἰδοὺ ἐλεύσεται τὰ θηρία τοῦ ἀγροῦ τὰ ἐν τῷ Λιβάνῳ καὶ ἦλθαν τὰ θηρία καὶ κατεπάτησαν τὸν αχουχ

19 εἶπας ἰδοὺ ἐπάταξας τὴν Ιδουμαίαν καὶ ἐπαίρει σε ἡ καρδία ἡ βαρεῖα νῦν κάθησο ἐν οἴκῳ σου καὶ ἵνα τί συμβάλλεις ἐν κακίᾳ καὶ πεσῇ σὺ καὶ Ιουδας μετὰ σοῦ

20 καὶ οὐκ ἤκουσεν Αμασιας ὅτι παρὰ κυρίου ἐγένετο τοῦ παραδοῦναι αὐτὸν εἰς χεῖρας ὅτι ἐξεζήτησεν τοὺς θεοὺς τῶν Ιδουμαίων

21 καὶ ἀνέβη Ιωας βασιλεὺς Ισραηλ καὶ ὤφθησαν ἀλλήλοις αὐτὸς καὶ Αμασιας βασιλεὺς Ιουδα ἐν Βαιθσαμυς ἥ ἐστιν τοῦ Ιουδα

22 καὶ ἐτροπώθη Ιουδας κατὰ πρόσωπον Ισραηλ καὶ ἔφυγεν ἕκαστος εἰς τὸ σκήνωμα

23 καὶ τὸν Αμασιαν βασιλέα Ιουδα τὸν τοῦ Ιωας κατέλαβεν Ιωας βασιλεὺς Ισραηλ ἐν Βαιθσαμυς καὶ εἰσήγαγεν αὐτὸν εἰς Ιερουσαλημ καὶ κατέσπασεν ἀπὸ τοῦ τείχους Ιερουσαλημ ἀπὸ πύλης Εφραιμ ἕως πύλης γωνίας τετρακοσίους πήχεις

24 καὶ πᾶν τὸ χρυσίον καὶ τὸ ἀργύριον καὶ πάντα τὰ σκεύη τὰ εὑρεθέντα ἐν οἴκῳ κυρίου καὶ παρὰ τῷ Αβδεδομ καὶ τοὺς θησαυροὺς οἴκου τοῦ βασιλέως καὶ τοὺς υἱοὺς τῶν συμμίξεων καὶ ἐπέστρεψεν εἰς Σαμάρειαν

25 καὶ ἔζησεν Αμασιας ὁ τοῦ Ιωας βασιλεὺς Ιουδα μετὰ τὸ ἀποθανεῖν Ιωας τὸν τοῦ Ιωαχαζ βασιλέα Ισραηλ ἔτη δέκα πέντε

26 καὶ οἱ λοιποὶ λόγοι Αμασιου οἱ πρῶτοι καὶ οἱ ἔσχατοι οὐκ ἰδοὺ γεγραμμένοι ἐπὶ βιβλίου βασιλέων Ιουδα καὶ Ισραηλ

27 καὶ ἐν τῷ καιρῷ ᾧ ἀπέστη Αμασιας ἀπὸ κυρίου καὶ ἐπέθεντο αὐτῷ ἐπίθεσιν καὶ ἔφυγεν ἀπὸ Ιερουσαλημ εἰς Λαχις καὶ ἀπέστειλαν κατόπισθεν αὐτοῦ εἰς Λαχις καὶ ἐθανάτωσαν αὐτὸν ἐκεῖ

28 καὶ ἀνέλαβον αὐτὸν ἐπὶ τῶν ἵππων καὶ ἔθαψαν αὐτὸν μετὰ τῶν πατέρων αὐτοῦ ἐν πόλει Δαυιδ

1 Viginti quinque annorum erat Amasias cum regnare cœpisset, et viginti novem annis regnavit in Jerusalem: nomen matris ejus Joadan de Jerusalem.

2 Fecitque bonum in conspectu Domini, verumtamen non in corde perfecto.

3 Cumque roboratum sibi videret imperium, jugulavit servos qui occiderant regem patrem suum,

4 sed filios eorum non interfecit, sicut scriptum est in libro legis Moysi, ubi præcepit Dominus, dicens: Non occidentur patres pro filiis, neque filii pro patribus suis, sed unusquisque in suo peccato morietur.

5 Congregavit igitur Amasias Judam, et constituit eos per familias, tribunosque et centuriones in universo Juda et Benjamin: et recensuit a viginti annis supra, invenitque trecenta millia juvenum qui egrederentur ad pugnam, et tenerent hastam et clypeum:

6 mercede quoque conduxit de Israël centum millia robustorum, centum talentis argenti.

7 Venit autem homo Dei ad illum, et ait: O rex, ne egrediatur tecum exercitus Israël: non est enim Dominus cum Israël, et cunctis filiis Ephraim:

8 quod si putas in robore exercitus bella consistere, superari te faciet Deus ab hostibus: Dei quippe est et adjuvare, et in fugam convertere.

9 Dixitque Amasias ad hominem Dei: Quid ergo fiet de centum talentis, quæ dedi militibus Israël? Et respondit ei homo Dei: Habet Dominus unde tibi dare possit multo his plura.

10 Separavit itaque Amasias exercitum qui venerat ad eum ex Ephraim, ut reverteretur in locum suum: at illi contra Judam vehementer irati, reversi sunt in regionem suam.

11 Porro Amasias confidenter eduxit populum suum, et abiit in vallem Salinarum, percussitque filios Seir decem millia:

12 et alia decem millia virorum ceperunt filii Juda, et adduxerunt ad præruptum cujusdam petræ, præcipitaveruntque eos de summo in præceps: qui universi crepuerunt.

13 At ille exercitus quem remiserat Amasias ne secum iret ad prælium, diffusus est in civitatibus Juda, a Samaria usque ad Bethoron, et interfectis tribus millibus, diripuit prædam magnam.

14 Amasias vero post cædem Idumæorum, et allatos deos filiorum Seir, statuit illos in deos sibi, et adorabat eos, et illis adolebat incensum.

15 Quam ob rem iratus Dominus contra Amasiam misit ad illum prophetam, qui diceret ei: Cur adorasti deos qui non liberaverunt populum suum de manu tua?

16 Cumque hæc ille loqueretur, respondit ei: Num consiliarius regis es? quiesce, ne interficiam te. Discedensque propheta: Scio, inquit, quod cogitaverit Deus occidere te quia fecisti hoc malum, et insuper non acquievisti consilio meo.

17 Igitur Amasias rex Juda inito pessimo consilio, misit ad Joas filium Joachaz filii Jehu regem Israël, dicens: Veni, videamus nos mutuo.

18 At ille remisit nuntios, dicens: Carduus qui est in Libano misit ad cedrum Libani, dicens: Da filiam tuam filio meo uxorem: et ecce bestiæ quæ erant in silva Libani, transierunt, et conculcaverunt carduum.

19 Dixisti: Percussi Edom, et idcirco erigitur cor tuum in superbiam: sede in domo tua: cur malum adversum te provocas, ut cadas et tu, et Juda tecum?

20 Noluit audire Amasias, eo quod Domini esset voluntas ut traderetur in manus hostium propter deos Edom.

21 Ascendit igitur Joas rex Israël, et mutuos sibi præbuere conspectus: Amasias autem rex Juda erat in Bethsames Juda:

22 corruitque Juda coram Israël, et fugit in tabernacula sua.

23 Porro Amasiam regem Juda, filium Joas filii Joachaz, cepit Joas rex Israël in Bethsames, et adduxit in Jerusalem: destruxitque murum ejus a porta Ephraim usque ad portam anguli quadringentis cubitis.

24 Omne quoque aurum et argentum, et universa vasa quæ repererat in domo Dei, et apud Obededom in thesauris etiam domus regiæ, necnon et filios obsidum, reduxit in Samariam.

25 Vixit autem Amasias filius Joas rex Juda, postquam mortuus est Joas filius Joachaz rex Israël, quindecim annis.

26 Reliqua autem sermonum Amasiæ priorum et novissimorum scripta sunt in libro regum Juda et Israël.

27 Qui postquam recessit a Domino, tetenderunt ei insidias in Jerusalem. Cumque fugisset in Lachis, miserunt, et interfecerunt eum ibi.

28 Reportantesque super equos, sepelierunt eum cum patribus suis in civitate David.
