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 ἀλ{L'} 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 ἀλ{L'} ἢ ἕκαστος τῇ ἑαυτοῦ ἁμαρτίᾳ ἀποθανοῦνται 1 Amasias was twenty-five years old when he came to the throne, and his reign at Jerusalem lasted twenty-nine years; his mother’s name was Joadan, a woman of Jerusalem. 2 This Amasias obeyed the Lord’s will, but not with full obedience. 3 Once his power was firmly established, he put his father’s murderers to death, 4 but not their children; the Lord’s injunction, laid down by the terms of Moses’ law, was that a father must not die for his son’s guilt, or a son for his father’s; no guilt but his own should bring a man to death.[1] 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 καὶ συνήγαγεν Αμασιας τὸν οἶκον Ιουδα καὶ ἀνέστησεν αὐτοὺς κα{T'} 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 με{T'} αὐτοῦ εἰς πόλεμον καὶ ἐπέθεντο ἐπὶ τὰς πόλεις Ιουδα ἀπὸ Σαμαρείας ἕως Βαιθωρων καὶ ἐπάταξαν ἐν αὐτοῖς τρεῖς χιλιάδας καὶ ἐσκύλευσαν σκῦλα πολλά 5 Then he mustered the whole of Juda, marshalling them by their clans, and appointing commanders and captains for the whole of Juda and Benjamin. When the count was taken of all that were above the age of twenty, he found himself in command of three hundred thousand fighting men, armed with spear and shield. 6 To these he added a force of a hundred thousand warriors from Israel, hired for a hundred talents of silver. 7 But now a messenger from God came and told him, My lord king, this force of Israelites must not march with thee; to Israel, to the whole kingdom of Ephraim, the Lord denies his aid. 8 Count as thou wilt on the strength of thy array, God will give thy enemies the mastery; he alone sends victory and defeat. 9 And when Amasias asked what was to become of the hundred talents he had spent on the mercenaries from Israel, the answer came, Worse losses yet the Lord can make good to thee. 10 Thereupon Amasias drew off the Israelite troops and bade them go home; go home they did, but full of indignation against Juda. 11 And he, with renewed confidence, led his own army out to the Valley of the Salt-pits, where they killed a thousand Edomites on the field; 12 ten thousand more they captured alive, and took them to a steep rock, from whose summit they threw them down headlong, so that all were dashed to pieces. 13 But meanwhile the army which Amasias had sent home, instead of taking them into battle with him, scattered here and there among the cities of Juda, all the way (from Samaria)[2] to Bethoron, killing three thousand of the inhabitants, and carrying away great store of plunder. 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 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 14 After this victory over the Edomites, Amasias brought home with him some of the idols men worshipped there in Seir; and these gods he made his own, worshipping them himself and burning incense before them. 15 And the Lord, much angered with him, sent a prophet to ask, What gods are these thou worshippest, that could not rescue their own people from thy onslaught? 16 He answered, What, wouldst thou be the king’s counsellor? Peace, or thy life shall pay for it! And the prophet said, as he turned to go, So much ill done, and no heed paid to my counsel! Certain it is the Lord has doomed thee to die. 17 And now Amasias, upon ill advice taken, sent a challenge to Joas, son of Joachaz, son of Jehu, king of Israel, Come, let us have a trial of strength! 18 And this message he had in answer: Said Lebanon thistle to Lebanon cedar, Let my son have thy daughter to wife. But down came wild beasts from Lebanon forest, and all the thistle got was, he was trampled underfoot. 19 At the thought of thy victory over Edom, thy heart is puffed up with pride. Keep thyself at home, do not invite disaster, to thy own and Juda’s ruin. 20 But Amasias would have his way; the Lord’s will was that he should fall into his enemy’s hands, to punish him for worshipping the gods of Edom. 21 So Joas, king of Israel, marched out, and they faced one another while Amasias, king of Juda, was still in his own territory, at Bethsames; 22 here the men of Juda were routed by the Israelites, and scattered to their homes in flight. 23 Thus Amasias, son of Joas, son of Joachaz, king of Juda, was captured by Joas king of Israel at Bethsames, and taken back to his own city of Jerusalem; where Joas made a breach in the wall four hundred cubits long, from the gate of Ephraim to the Corner gate, 24 carried off all the gold and silver and other ware that was to be found in the temple, in the treasury of Obededom, and in the royal treasury, took hostages besides, and so made his way back to Samaria. 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 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 25 Amasias, son of Joas, king of Juda, survived this Joas, son of Joachaz, king of Israel, but fifteen years. 26 What else Amasias did, first and last, is set down in the Record of the kings of Israel and Juda. 27 But ever since he forsook the Lord, fresh troubles befell him. A conspiracy was made against him in Jerusalem, and when he fled to Lachis they sent in pursuit of him and put him to death there; 28 afterwards his body was brought back to Jerusalem in a horse-litter, and there buried with his fathers in David’s Keep.[3] 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.
