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 ἐ{F'} 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 με{T'} 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 ἐ{F'} ἡμᾶς 10 καὶ ἐλάλησαν αὐτῷ τὰ παιδάρια τὰ ἐκτραφέντα με{T'} αὐτοῦ οὕτως λαλήσεις τῷ λαῷ τῷ λαλήσαντι πρὸς σὲ λέγων ὁ πατήρ σου ἐβάρυνεν τὸν ζυγὸν ἡμῶν καὶ σὺ ἄφες ἀ{F'} 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 1 This Roboam betook himself to Sichem; at Sichem the whole of Israel had assembled to crown him king. 2 But meanwhile Jeroboam, son of Nabat, who had fled to Egypt to be out of king Solomon’s reach, had come back on hearing the news of his death; 3 and he, too, was summoned to meet them. He, and all Israel, came to make a request of Roboam; 4 Thy father, they said, made us bear a bitter yoke. Less thou must ask of us than those cruel exactions, those stern commands, if we are ever to be servants of thine. 5 Give me three days, he said, and then come back to hear my answer. So, when the people had left him, 6 he asked advice first of the older men that had been courtiers in the life-time of his father; what answer should he make to the people? 7 Why, they told him, if thou wilt but court their favour, and win them with gracious words, they will never cease giving thee loyal service. 8 But he left their advice unheeded, and began to take counsel instead of the younger men who had grown up with him, and were of his following; 9 How think you? he asked. What answer shall I make to the people’s request that I would lighten the yoke my father laid on them? 10 And these, men that had been brought up with him in luxurious ways, gave him advice in their turn. Do they complain that thy father laid a heavy yoke on them, and ask for relief? Then tell them there is more strength in thy little finger than in all the breadth of thy father’s back; 11 if his yoke fell heavy on them, thine shall be heavier still, if thy father’s weapon was the lash, thine shall be the scorpion. 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 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 ἐ{P'} 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 ἐ{P'} 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 12 So the third day came, and Jeroboam, with all the people at his back, kept their tryst with him. 13 And the king, instead of heeding the advice which the older men had given him, spoke to the people harshly, 14 with such words as the younger men would have him use, If my father’s yoke fell heavy on you, mine shall be heavier still, if his weapon was the lash, mine shall be the scorpion. 15 Thus the king refused to fall in with the people’s request; the Lord’s will was to give effect to the promise he had made, through Ahias the Silonite, to Jeroboam son of Nabat. 16 The people, thus churlishly answered, cried out, David is none of ours, not for us the son of Jesse; go back, men of Israel, to your homes! David’s rule for David’s tribe! And with that, Israel dispersed to their homes, 17 leaving Roboam to reign over such Israelites as lived in the cities of Juda. 18 And now, when Aduram, who had charge of the levy, came to them in the king’s name, the Israelites stoned him to death; whereupon Roboam mounted his chariot and betook himself, with all speed, to Jerusalem. 19 From that day to this, the men of Israel have refused allegiance to the dynasty of David.[1] 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.
