1 υἱὸς ὀκτὼ ἐτῶν Ιωσιας ἐν τῷ βασιλεύειν αὐτὸν καὶ τριάκοντα καὶ ἓν ἔτος ἐβασίλευσεν ἐν Ιερουσαλημ καὶ ὄνομα τῇ μητρὶ αὐτοῦ Ιεδιδα θυγάτηρ Εδεϊα ἐκ Βασουρωθ 2 καὶ ἐποίησεν τὸ εὐθὲς ἐν ὀφθαλμοῖς κυρίου καὶ ἐπορεύθη ἐν πάσῃ ὁδῷ Δαυιδ τοῦ πατρὸς αὐτοῦ οὐκ ἀπέστη δεξιὰ ἢ ἀριστερά 1 Josias was eight years old when he came to the throne, and his reign at Jerusalem lasted thirty-one years; his mother’s name was Idida, the daughter of Hadaia of Besecath. 2 He was obedient to the Lord’s will, and followed in all things the example of his ancestor, king David, never swerving to right or left. 1 Octo annorum erat Josias cum regnare cœpisset: triginta et uno anno regnavit in Jerusalem: nomen matris ejus Idida filia Hadaia de Besecath. 2 Fecitque quod placitum erat coram Domino, et ambulavit per omnes vias David patris sui: non declinavit ad dexteram, sive ad sinistram.

Pay must be given to these workmen, engaged on making good the temple fabric, 6 carpenters, masons, and builders alike; there was timber to be bought, too, and stone from the quarries, before the Lord’s temple could be repaired. 7 No account need be kept of these expenses; the overseers could be trusted with full disposal of the money. 8 It was then that the high priest Helcias told Saphan he had found, there in the temple, a copy of the law, which he gave him to read. 9 And Saphan, going back to the king with news of his errand, to report that the temple offerings had been reckoned up and paid over to the temple overseers, for distribution to the workmen, 10 added that he had a book which the high priest Helcias had given him.

This book, then, Saphan read out in the royal presence; 11 and the king, upon hearing the terms of the Lord’s law, rent his garments about him. 12 Then he gave his orders to Helcias, and Ahicam son of Saphan, and Achobor son of Micha, and Saphan the controller of the temple, and Asaia, one of his courtiers; 13 Go and consult the Lord, he told them, in my name, and in the name of this whole people of Juda, about this new-found copy of the law. Fiercely the Lord’s anger burns against us, that the words of this book should have fallen on deaf ears, and our race should have disobeyed the commands enjoined upon us. 14 So Helcias, Ahicam, Achobor, Saphan and Asaia betook themselves to the prophetess Holda. She was wife to Sellum, son of Thecua, son of Araas, that once kept the royal wardrobe; her dwelling was at Jerusalem, in the new part of the city. So they told her their business, 15 and she, in return, gave them this message from the Lord God of Israel for the man that sent them: 16 Thus says the Lord, For this city and its citizens I have punishments in store, all the punishments threatened in yonder book the king of Juda has read. 17 The men of Juda have forsaken me, and offered sacrifice to alien gods; all they do is done in defiance of me; the fire of my vengeance must needs break out against this city, and there is no quenching it. 18 But to the king of Juda, who sent you here to consult the Lord, give this message from the Lord God of Israel: Well for thee thou didst listen to the warnings this book gave thee! 19 Well for thee that fear caught at thy heart, and thou didst humble thyself before the Lord, at hearing him threaten city and citizens with despair and doom; that thou didst rend thy garments, and hadst recourse to me in tears! And thou hast won my audience, the Lord says; 20 I will lay thee to rest with thy fathers, in quiet times thou shalt go to thy grave; not for thy eyes to witness the great calamities I mean to bring on this city of thine.
3 Anno autem octavodecimo regis Josiæ, misit rex Saphan filium Aslia filii Messulam scribam templi Domini, dicens ei: 4 Vade ad Helciam sacerdotem magnum, ut confletur pecunia quæ illata est in templum Domini, quam collegerunt janitores templi a populo: 5 deturque fabris per præpositos domus Domini, qui et distribuant eam his qui operantur in templo Domini, ad instauranda sartatecta templi: 6 tignariis videlicet et cæmentariis, et iis qui interrupta componunt: et ut emantur ligna, et lapides de lapicidinis, ad instaurandum templum Domini. 7 Verumtamen non supputetur eis argentum quod accipiunt, sed in potestate habeant, et in fide. 8 Dixit autem Helcias pontifex ad Saphan scribam: Librum legis reperi in domo Domini. Deditque Helcias volumen Saphan, qui et legit illud. 9 Venit quoque Saphan scriba ad regem, et renuntiavit ei quod præceperat, et ait: Conflaverunt servi tui pecuniam quæ reperta est in domo Domini, et dederunt ut distribueretur fabris a præfectis operum templi Domini. 10 Narravit quoque Saphan scriba regi, dicens: Librum dedit mihi Helcias sacerdos. Quem cum legisset Saphan coram rege, 11 et audisset rex verba libri legis Domini, scidit vestimenta sua. 12 Et præcepit Helciæ sacerdoti, et Ahicam filio Saphan, et Achobor filio Micha, et Saphan scribæ, et Asaiæ servo regis, dicens: 13 Ite et consulite Dominum super me, et super populo, et super omni Juda, de verbis voluminis istius, quod inventum est: magna enim ira Domini succensa est contra nos, quia non audierunt patres nostri verba libri hujus, ut facerent omne quod scriptum est nobis. 14 Ierunt itaque Helcias sacerdos, et Ahicam, et Achobor, et Sapham, et Asaia, ad Holdam prophetidem, uxorem Sellum filii Thecuæ filii Araas custodis vestium, quæ habitabat in Jerusalem in Secunda: locutique sunt ad eam. 15 Et illa respondit eis: Hæc dicit Dominus Deus Israël: Dicite viro qui misit vos ad me: 16 Hæc dicit Dominus: Ecce ego adducam mala super locum istum, et super habitatores ejus, omnia verba legis quæ legit rex Juda: 17 quia dereliquerunt me, et sacrificaverunt diis alienis, irritantes me in cunctis operibus manuum suarum: et succendetur indignatio mea in loco hoc, et non extinguetur. 18 Regi autem Juda, qui misit vos ut consuleretis Dominum, sic dicetis: Hæc dicit Dominus Deus Israël: Pro eo quod audisti verba voluminis, 19 et perterritum est cor tuum, et humiliatus es coram Domino, auditis sermonibus contra locum istum et habitatores ejus, quod videlicet fierent in stuporem et in maledictum: et scidisti vestimenta tua, et flevisti coram me, et ego audivi, ait Dominus: 20 idcirco colligam te ad patres tuos, et colligeris ad sepulchrum tuum in pace, ut non videant oculi tui omnia mala quæ inducturus sum super locum istum.
