1 καὶ Αζαριας υἱὸς Ωδηδ ἐγένετο ἐ{P'} αὐτὸν πνεῦμα κυρίου 2 καὶ ἐξῆλθεν εἰς ἀπάντησιν Ασα καὶ παντὶ Ιουδα καὶ Βενιαμιν καὶ εἶπεν ἀκούσατέ μου Ασα καὶ πᾶς Ιουδα καὶ Βενιαμιν κύριος με{Q'} ὑμῶν ἐν τῷ εἶναι ὑμᾶς με{T'} αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐὰν ἐκζητήσητε αὐτόν εὑρεθήσεται ὑμῖν καὶ ἐὰν ἐγκαταλίπητε αὐτόν ἐγκαταλείψει ὑμᾶς 3 καὶ ἡμέραι πολλαὶ τῷ Ισραηλ ἐν οὐ θεῷ ἀληθινῷ καὶ οὐχ ἱερέως ὑποδεικνύοντος καὶ ἐν οὐ νόμῳ 4 καὶ ἐπιστρέψει ἐπὶ κύριον θεὸν Ισραηλ καὶ εὑρεθήσεται αὐτοῖς 5 καὶ ἐν ἐκείνῳ τῷ καιρῷ οὐκ ἔστιν εἰρήνη τῷ ἐκπορευομένῳ καὶ τῷ εἰσπορευομένῳ ὅτι ἔκστασις κυρίου ἐπὶ πάντας τοὺς κατοικοῦντας τὰς χώρας 6 καὶ πολεμήσει ἔθνος πρὸς ἔθνος καὶ πόλις πρὸς πόλιν ὅτι ὁ θεὸς ἐξέστησεν αὐτοὺς ἐν πάσῃ θλίψει 7 καὶ ὑμεῖς ἰσχύσατε καὶ μὴ ἐκλυέσθωσαν αἱ χεῖρες ὑμῶν ὅτι ἔστιν μισθὸς τῇ ἐργασίᾳ ὑμῶν 1 It was then that the spirit of the Lord moved Azarias, son of Oded, to prophesy. 2 He it was went out to meet Asa, and thus greeted him: Listen to me, Asa, listen to me, tribes of Juda and Benjamin. If the Lord declares for you, it is because you have declared yourselves for him; have recourse to him, and he is yours, forsake him, and you will find yourselves forsaken. 3 Israel he has abandoned; long must they wait without true God, true prophet or true law, 4 till affliction brings them back to the Lord, their own God, and they look for him again, and find him. 5 Meanwhile no peace, only constant marching to and fro; alarm of battle in the kingdoms all around, 6 nation fighting against nation, city against city, because the Lord would have them ever restless, ever in sore straits.[1] 7 But you, take courage; never slacken your resolve; still for your loyal service you shall have reward. 1 Azarias autem filius Oded, facto in se spiritu Dei, 2 egressus est in occursum Asa, et dixit ei: Audite me, Asa, et omnis Juda et Benjamin: Dominus vobiscum, quia fuistis cum eo. Si quæsieritis eum, invenietis: si autem dereliqueritis eum, derelinquet vos. 3 Transibant autem multi dies in Israël absque Deo vero, et absque sacerdote doctore, et absque lege. 4 Cumque reversi fuerint in angustia sua ad Dominum Deum Israël, et quæsierint eum, reperient eum. 5 In tempore illo, non erit pax egredienti et ingredienti, sed terrores undique in cunctis habitatoribus terrarum: 6 pugnavit enim gens contra gentem, et civitas contra civitatem, quia Dominus conturbabit eos in omni angustia. 7 Vos ergo confortamini, et non dissolvantur manus vestræ: erit enim merces operi vestro.
8 καὶ ἐν τῷ ἀκοῦσαι τοὺς λόγους τούτους καὶ τὴν προφητείαν Αδαδ τοῦ προφήτου καὶ κατίσχυσεν καὶ ἐξέβαλεν τὰ βδελύγματα ἀπὸ πάσης τῆς γῆς Ιουδα καὶ Βενιαμιν καὶ ἀπὸ τῶν πόλεων ὧν κατέσχεν ἐν ὄρει Εφραιμ καὶ ἐνεκαίνισεν τὸ θυσιαστήριον κυρίου ὃ ἦν ἔμπροσθεν τοῦ ναοῦ κυρίου 9 καὶ ἐξεκκλησίασεν τὸν Ιουδαν καὶ Βενιαμιν καὶ τοὺς προσηλύτους τοὺς παροικοῦντας με{T'} αὐτοῦ ἀπὸ Εφραιμ καὶ ἀπὸ Μανασση καὶ ἀπὸ Συμεων ὅτι προσετέθησαν πρὸς αὐτὸν πολλοὶ τοῦ Ισραηλ ἐν τῷ ἰδεῖν αὐτοὺς ὅτι κύριος ὁ θεὸς αὐτοῦ με{T'} αὐτοῦ 10 καὶ συνήχθησαν εἰς Ιερουσαλημ ἐν τῷ μηνὶ τῷ τρίτῳ ἐν τῷ πεντεκαιδεκάτῳ ἔτει τῆς βασιλείας Ασα 11 καὶ ἔθυσεν τῷ κυρίῳ ἐν ἐκείνῃ τῇ ἡμέρᾳ ἀπὸ τῶν σκύλων ὧν ἤνεγκαν μόσχους ἑπτακοσίους καὶ πρόβατα ἑπτακισχίλια 12 καὶ διῆλθεν ἐν διαθήκῃ ζητῆσαι κύριον θεὸν τῶν πατέρων αὐτῶν ἐξ ὅλης τῆς καρδίας καὶ ἐξ ὅλης τῆς ψυχῆς 13 καὶ πᾶς ὃς ἐὰν μὴ ἐκζητήσῃ κύριον θεὸν Ισραηλ ἀποθανεῖται ἀπὸ νεωτέρου ἕως πρεσβυτέρου ἀπὸ ἀνδρὸς ἕως γυναικός 14 καὶ ὤμοσαν ἐν τῷ κυρίῳ ἐν φωνῇ μεγάλῃ καὶ ἐν σάλπιγξιν καὶ ἐν κερατίναις 15 καὶ ηὐφράνθησαν πᾶς Ιουδα περὶ τοῦ ὅρκου ὅτι ἐξ ὅλης τῆς ψυχῆς ὤμοσαν καὶ ἐν πάσῃ θελήσει ἐζήτησαν αὐτόν καὶ εὑρέθη αὐτοῖς καὶ κατέπαυσεν αὐτοῖς κύριος κυκλόθεν 8 Upon hearing the inspired words of this prophet, Azarias son of Oded, Asa’s courage rose; never an idol was left in Juda or Benjamin, or the cities he had recovered in the hill-country of Ephraim. He also dedicated anew the altar of the Lord before the temple porch, 9 summoning all Juda and Benjamin, and with them new-comers from Ephraim, Manasses and Simeon; not a few of these Israelites had transferred their allegiance to him, when they saw what favour he enjoyed with the Lord his God. 10 In the third month of Asa’s twenty-fifth year they assembled at Jerusalem, 11 and sacrificed to the Lord that day, out of their spoil and out of the cattle they had driven away, seven hundred bulls and seven thousand rams. 12 Then he set about solemnly ratifying the covenant which bound them to have recourse to the Lord God of their fathers, heart and soul. 13 Death to high or low, death to man or woman, Asa cried, that turns to any god save the Lord God of Israel! 14 Loud were their cries of acclaim, loud rang trumpet and horn, as the oath was taken, 15 binding every man in the territory of Juda under a curse. Loyally they swore, loyally kept their oath, nor did they turn to the Lord in vain; peace undisturbed on every frontier was their reward. 8 Quod cum audisset Asa, verba scilicet, et prophetiam Azariæ filii Oded prophetæ, confortatus est, et abstulit idola de omni terra Juda et de Benjamin, et ex urbibus quas ceperat, montis Ephraim: et dedicavit altare Domini quod erat ante porticum Domini. 9 Congregavitque universum Judam et Benjamin, et advenas cum eis de Ephraim, et de Manasse, et de Simeon: plures enim ad eum confugerant ex Israël, videntes quod Dominus Deus illius esset cum eo. 10 Cumque venissent in Jerusalem mense tertio, anno decimoquinto regni Asa, 11 immolaverunt Domino in die illa de manubiis et præda quam adduxerant, boves septingentos, et arietes septem millia. 12 Et intravit ex more ad corroborandum fœdus ut quærerent Dominum Deum patrum suorum in toto corde, et in tota anima sua. 13 Si quis autem, inquit, non quæsierit Dominum Deum Israël, moriatur, a minimo usque ad maximum, a viro usque ad mulierem. 14 Juraveruntque Domino voce magna in jubilo, et in clangore tubæ, et in sonitu buccinarum, 15 omnes qui erant in Juda, cum execratione: in omni enim corde suo juraverunt, et in tota voluntate quæsierunt eum, et invenerunt: præstititque eis Dominus requiem per circuitum.
16 καὶ τὴν Μααχα τὴν μητέρα αὐτοῦ μετέστησεν τοῦ μὴ εἶναι τῇ Ἀστάρτῃ λειτουργοῦσαν καὶ κατέκοψεν τὸ εἴδωλον καὶ κατέκαυσεν ἐν χειμάρρῳ Κεδρων 17 πλὴν τὰ ὑψηλὰ οὐκ ἀπέστησαν ἔτι ὑπῆρχεν ἐν τῷ Ισραηλ ἀλ{L'} ἢ καρδία Ασα ἐγένετο πλήρης πάσας τὰς ἡμέρας αὐτοῦ 18 καὶ εἰσήνεγκεν τὰ ἅγια Δαυιδ τοῦ πατρὸς αὐτοῦ καὶ τὰ ἅγια οἴκου κυρίου τοῦ θεοῦ ἀργύριον καὶ χρυσίον καὶ σκεύη 19 καὶ πόλεμος οὐκ ἦν με{T'} αὐτοῦ ἕως τοῦ πέμπτου καὶ τριακοστοῦ ἔτους τῆς βασιλείας Ασα 16 His own mother, Maacha, Asa deprived of her royal dignity, for making a forest shrine that had Priapus’ image in it; the image he broke, and burnt the fragments of it, and cast the ashes into the river Cedron. 17 He did not abolish the hill-shrines, but all his days his heart was true to the Lord; 18 and he enriched the Lord’s house with gold and silver and great array of other ornaments, some dedicated by his father, some in performance of his own vows.[2] 19 And war there was none till Asa’s reign had reached its thirty-fifth year. 16 Sed et Maacham matrem Asa regis ex augusto deposuit imperio, eo quod fecisset in luco simulacrum Priapi: quod omne contrivit, et in frustra comminuens combussit in torrente Cedron. 17 Excelsa autem derelicta sunt in Israël: attamen cor Asa erat perfectum cunctis diebus ejus, 18 eaque quæ voverat pater suus, et ipse, intulit in domum Domini, argentum, et aurum, vasorumque diversam supellectilem. 19 Bellum vero non fuit usque ad trigesimum quintum annum regni Asa.
