1 καὶ ἀπέστειλεν Εζεκιας ἐπὶ πάντα Ισραηλ καὶ Ιουδαν καὶ ἐπιστολὰς ἔγραψεν ἐπὶ τὸν Εφραιμ καὶ Μανασση ἐλθεῖν εἰς οἶκον κυρίου εἰς Ιερουσαλημ ποιῆσαι τὸ φασεκ τῷ κυρίῳ θεῷ Ισραηλ 2 καὶ ἐβουλεύσατο ὁ βασιλεὺς καὶ οἱ ἄρχοντες καὶ πᾶσα ἡ ἐκκλησία ἡ ἐν Ιερουσαλημ ποιῆσαι τὸ φασεκ τῷ μηνὶ τῷ δευτέρῳ 3 οὐ γὰρ ἠδυνάσθησαν αὐτὸ ποιῆσαι ἐν τῷ καιρῷ ἐκείνῳ ὅτι οἱ ἱερεῖς οὐχ ἡγνίσθησαν ἱκανοί καὶ ὁ λαὸς οὐ συνήχθη εἰς Ιερουσαλημ 4 καὶ ἤρεσεν ὁ λόγος ἐναντίον τοῦ βασιλέως καὶ ἐναντίον τῆς ἐκκλησίας 5 καὶ ἔστησαν λόγον διελθεῖν κήρυγμα ἐν παντὶ Ισραηλ ἀπὸ Βηρσαβεε ἕως Δαν ἐλθόντας ποιῆσαι τὸ φασεκ κυρίῳ θεῷ Ισραηλ ἐν Ιερουσαλημ ὅτι πλῆθος οὐκ ἐποίησεν κατὰ τὴν γραφήν 6 καὶ ἐπορεύθησαν οἱ τρέχοντες σὺν ταῖς ἐπιστολαῖς παρὰ τοῦ βασιλέως καὶ τῶν ἀρχόντων εἰς πάντα Ισραηλ καὶ Ιουδαν κατὰ τὸ πρόσταγμα τοῦ βασιλέως λέγοντες υἱοὶ Ισραηλ ἐπιστρέψατε πρὸς θεὸν Αβρααμ καὶ Ισαακ καὶ Ισραηλ καὶ ἐπιστρέψει τοὺς ἀνασεσῳσμένους τοὺς καταλειφθέντας ἀπὸ χειρὸς βασιλέως Ασσουρ 7 καὶ μὴ γίνεσθε καθὼς οἱ πατέρες ὑμῶν καὶ οἱ ἀδελφοὶ ὑμῶν οἳ ἀπέστησαν ἀπὸ κυρίου θεοῦ πατέρων αὐτῶν καὶ παρέδωκεν αὐτοὺς εἰς ἐρήμωσιν καθὼς ὑμεῖς ὁρᾶτε 8 καὶ νῦν μὴ σκληρύνητε τοὺς τραχήλους ὑμῶν δότε δόξαν κυρίῳ τῷ θεῷ καὶ εἰσέλθατε εἰς τὸ ἁγίασμα αὐτοῦ ὃ ἡγίασεν εἰς τὸν αἰῶνα καὶ δουλεύσατε τῷ κυρίῳ θεῷ ὑμῶν καὶ ἀποστρέψει ἀ{F'} ὑμῶν θυμὸν ὀργῆς 9 ὅτι ἐν τῷ ἐπιστρέφειν ὑμᾶς πρὸς κύριον οἱ ἀδελφοὶ ὑμῶν καὶ τὰ τέκνα ὑμῶν ἔσονται ἐν οἰκτιρμοῖς ἔναντι πάντων τῶν αἰχμαλωτισάντων αὐτούς καὶ ἀποστρέψει εἰς τὴν γῆν ταύτην ὅτι ἐλεήμων καὶ οἰκτίρμων κύριος ὁ θεὸς ἡμῶν καὶ οὐκ ἀποστρέψει τὸ πρόσωπον αὐτοῦ ἀ{F'} ἡμῶν ἐὰν ἐπιστρέψωμεν πρὸς αὐτόν 1 Then Ezechias sent out a summons to Juda and all Israel (for his word went out by letter even to Ephraim and Manasses), bidding them come up to the Lord’s house at Jerusalem, and keep his paschal feast there. 2 The king and his nobles and all Jerusalem were of this advice, that the pasch should be kept in the second month; 3 keep it at the appointed time they might not, but must wait till priests had cleansed themselves in sufficient number, and the people could assemble at Jerusalem. 4 Such was the resolve taken by the king and his subjects; 5 and because so many had long neglected the law’s injunction, the summons should go out to all Israel, from Bersabee to Dan, bidding them keep the pasch there at Jerusalem, in the Lord’s honour, that was all Israel’s God. 6 So couriers went out in the king’s service, bearing letters in his name and in the name of his nobles to Israel and Juda alike, and this was their purport; Come back, Israelites, to the Lord, all that remnant of you the Assyrian king has spared; and he, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Israel, will come back to your side. 7 See how your fathers and brethren have deserted the Lord, the God of their race, and been left to their doom; be wiser than they. 8 Do not rebel, as your fathers did, against his yoke; surrender to the Lord, and come up to this sanctuary, which he has hallowed for all time; obey him, the Lord, the God of your fathers, and his fierce anger will be appeased. 9 When you have come back to the Lord, the victors will relent, and allow your banished sons and brethren to return home; so gracious the Lord is, so merciful; turn back to him, and his face shall be hidden from you no more. 1 Misit quoque Ezechias ad omnem Israël et Judam: scripsitque epistolas ad Ephraim et Manassen ut venirent ad domum Domini in Jerusalem, et facerent Phase Domino Deo Israël. 2 Inito ergo consilio regis et principum, et universi cœtus Jerusalem, decreverunt ut facerent Phase mense secundo. 3 Non enim potuerant facere in tempore suo, quia sacerdotes qui possent sufficere, sanctificati non fuerant, et populus nondum congregatus fuerat in Jerusalem. 4 Placuitque sermo regi, et omni multitudini. 5 Et decreverunt ut mitterent nuntios in universum Israël, de Bersabee usque Dan, ut venirent, et facerent Phase Domino Deo Israël in Jerusalem: multi enim non fecerant sicut lege præscriptum est. 6 Perrexeruntque cursores cum epistolis ex regis imperio, et principum ejus, in universum Israël et Judam, juxta id quod rex jusserat, prædicantes: Filii Israël, revertimini ad Dominum Deum Abraham, et Isaac, et Israël: et revertetur ad reliquias quæ effugerunt manum regis Assyriorum. 7 Nolite fieri sicut patres vestri et fratres, qui recesserunt a Domino Deo patrum suorum, qui tradidit eos in interitum, ut ipsi cernitis. 8 Nolite indurare cervices vestras, sicut patres vestri: tradite manus Domino, et venite ad sanctuarium ejus quod sanctificavit in æternum: servite Domino Deo patrum vestrorum, et avertetur a vobis ira furoris ejus. 9 Si enim vos reversi fueritis ad Dominum, fratres vestri et filii habebunt misericordiam coram dominis suis, qui illos duxerunt captivos, et revertentur in terram hanc: pius enim et clemens est Dominus Deus vester, et non avertet faciem suam a vobis, si reversi fueritis ad eum.
10 καὶ ἦσαν οἱ τρέχοντες διαπορευόμενοι πόλιν ἐκ πόλεως ἐν τῷ ὄρει Εφραιμ καὶ Μανασση καὶ ἕως Ζαβουλων καὶ ἐγένοντο ὡς καταγελῶντες αὐτῶν καὶ καταμωκώμενοι 11 ἀλλὰ ἄνθρωποι Ασηρ καὶ ἀπὸ Μανασση καὶ ἀπὸ Ζαβουλων ἐνετράπησαν καὶ ἦλθον εἰς Ιερουσαλημ 12 καὶ ἐν Ιουδα ἐγένετο χεὶρ κυρίου δοῦναι αὐτοῖς καρδίαν μίαν ἐλθεῖν τοῦ ποιῆσαι κατὰ τὸ πρόσταγμα τοῦ βασιλέως καὶ τῶν ἀρχόντων ἐν λόγῳ κυρίου 13 καὶ συνήχθησαν εἰς Ιερουσαλημ λαὸς πολὺς τοῦ ποιῆσαι τὴν ἑορτὴν τῶν ἀζύμων ἐν τῷ μηνὶ τῷ δευτέρῳ ἐκκλησία πολλὴ σφόδρα 14 καὶ ἀνέστησαν καὶ καθεῖλαν τὰ θυσιαστήρια τὰ ἐν Ιερουσαλημ καὶ πάντα ἐν οἷς ἐθυμιῶσαν τοῖς ψευδέσιν κατέσπασαν καὶ ἔρριψαν εἰς τὸν χειμάρρουν Κεδρων 15 καὶ ἔθυσαν τὸ φασεκ τῇ τεσσαρεσκαιδεκάτῃ τοῦ μηνὸς τοῦ δευτέρου καὶ οἱ ἱερεῖς καὶ οἱ Λευῖται ἐνετράπησαν καὶ ἡγνίσθησαν καὶ εἰσήνεγκαν ὁλοκαυτώματα εἰς οἶκον κυρίου 16 καὶ ἔστησαν ἐπὶ τὴν στάσιν αὐτῶν κατὰ τὸ κρίμα αὐτῶν κατὰ τὴν ἐντολὴν Μωυσῆ ἀνθρώπου τοῦ θεοῦ καὶ οἱ ἱερεῖς ἐδέχοντο τὰ αἵματα ἐκ χειρὸς τῶν Λευιτῶν 17 ὅτι πλῆθος τῆς ἐκκλησίας οὐχ ἡγνίσθη καὶ οἱ Λευῖται ἦσαν τοῦ θύειν τὸ φασεκ παντὶ τῷ μὴ δυναμένῳ ἁγνισθῆναι τῷ κυρίῳ 18 ὅτι τὸ πλεῖστον τοῦ λαοῦ ἀπὸ Εφραιμ καὶ Μανασση καὶ Ισσαχαρ καὶ Ζαβουλων οὐχ ἡγνίσθησαν ἀλλὰ ἔφαγον τὸ φασεκ παρὰ τὴν γραφήν καὶ προσηύξατο Εζεκιας περὶ αὐτῶν λέγων κύριος ὁ ἀγαθὸς ἐξιλασάσθω ὑπὲρ 19 πάσης καρδίας κατευθυνούσης ἐκζητῆσαι κύριον τὸν θεὸν τῶν πατέρων αὐτῶν καὶ οὐ κατὰ τὴν ἁγνείαν τῶν ἁγίων 20 καὶ ἐπήκουσεν κύριος τῷ Εζεκια καὶ ἰάσατο τὸν λαόν 10 Swiftly the couriers went from city to city of Ephraim and Manasses, right up to Zabulon, meeting everywhere with scorn and derision; 11 but there were some tribesmen of Aser, Manasses and Zabulon that fell in with the proposal, and came. 12 In Juda, such was the Lord’s enabling power, they had but one thought, to obey the Lord’s will, obey the command of the king and of his nobles. 13 So it was a great throng that came to Jerusalem to keep this feast of unleavened bread in the second month. 14 First they set about destroying the altars up and down Jerusalem, overthrowing all the shrines at which incense had been burned to false gods; and these they threw down into Cedron valley. 15 Then, on the fourteenth day of the second month, they slew the paschal victim. Priest and Levite, cleansed of their defilement at last, offered burnt-sacrifice in the Lord’s house, 16 keeping their due order, according to the terms of that law which God’s servant Moses gave. Only it was the Levites that must hand over to the priests the blood which was to be poured out, 17 so many of the worshippers were still uncleansed; for all those who had not come in time to rid themselves of their defilement, the Levites must slay the victim. 18 There were many from Ephraim, Manasses, Issachar and Zabulon that must overstep the bounds of the law by eating their paschal meal while they were yet defiled; but Ezechias made intercession for these; surely the Lord, in his goodness, would pardon 19 such as made the Lord God of their fathers their whole heart’s quest; cleansed or no, he would not find fault with them. 20 In answer to this prayer, the Lord gave his people quittance. 10 Igitur cursores pergebant velociter de civitate in civitatem per terram Ephraim et Manasse usque ad Zabulon, illis irridentibus et subsannantibus eos. 11 Attamen quidam viri ex Aser, et Manasse, et Zabulon acquiescentes consilio, venerunt Jerusalem. 12 In Juda vero facta est manus Domini ut daret eis cor unum, ut facerent juxta præceptum regis et principum verbum Domini. 13 Congregatique sunt in Jerusalem populi multi ut facerent solemnitatem azymorum, in mense secundo: 14 et surgentes destruxerunt altaria quæ erant in Jerusalem, atque universa in quibus idolis adolebatur incensum, subvertentes, projecerunt in torrentem Cedron. 15 Immolaverunt autem Phase quartadecima die mensis secundi. Sacerdotes quoque atque Levitæ tandem sanctificati, obtulerunt holocausta in domo Domini: 16 steteruntque in ordine suo juxta dispositionem et legem Moysi hominis Dei: sacerdotes vero suscipiebant effundendum sanguinem de manibus Levitarum, 17 eo quod multa turba sanctificata non esset: et idcirco immolarent Levitæ Phase his qui non occurrerant sanctificari Domino. 18 Magna etiam pars populi de Ephraim, et Manasse, et Issachar, et Zabulon, quæ sanctificata non fuerat, comedit Phase non juxta quod scriptum est: et oravit pro eis Ezechias, dicens: Dominus bonus propitiabitur 19 cunctis, qui in toto corde requirunt Dominum Deum patrum suorum: et non imputabit eis quod minus sanctificati sunt. 20 Quem exaudivit Dominus, et placatus est populo.
21 καὶ ἐποίησαν οἱ υἱοὶ Ισραηλ οἱ εὑρεθέντες ἐν Ιερουσαλημ τὴν ἑορτὴν τῶν ἀζύμων ἑπτὰ ἡμέρας ἐν εὐφροσύνῃ μεγάλῃ καὶ καθυμνοῦντες τῷ κυρίῳ ἡμέραν κα{Q'} ἡμέραν καὶ οἱ ἱερεῖς καὶ οἱ Λευῖται ἐν ὀργάνοις τῷ κυρίῳ 22 καὶ ἐλάλησεν Εζεκιας ἐπὶ πᾶσαν καρδίαν τῶν Λευιτῶν καὶ τῶν συνιόντων σύνεσιν ἀγαθὴν τῷ κυρίῳ καὶ συνετέλεσαν τὴν ἑορτὴν τῶν ἀζύμων ἑπτὰ ἡμέρας θύοντες θυσίας σωτηρίου καὶ ἐξομολογούμενοι τῷ κυρίῳ θεῷ τῶν πατέρων αὐτῶν 23 καὶ ἐβουλεύσατο ἡ ἐκκλησία ἅμα ποιῆσαι ἑπτὰ ἡμέρας ἄλλας καὶ ἐποίησαν ἑπτὰ ἡμέρας ἐν εὐφροσύνῃ 24 ὅτι Εζεκιας ἀπήρξατο τῷ Ιουδα τῇ ἐκκλησίᾳ μόσχους χιλίους καὶ ἑπτακισχίλια πρόβατα καὶ οἱ ἄρχοντες ἀπήρξαντο τῷ λαῷ μόσχους χιλίους καὶ πρόβατα δέκα χιλιάδας καὶ τὰ ἅγια τῶν ἱερέων εἰς πλῆθος 25 καὶ ηὐφράνθη πᾶσα ἡ ἐκκλησία οἱ ἱερεῖς καὶ οἱ Λευῖται καὶ πᾶσα ἡ ἐκκλησία Ιουδα καὶ οἱ εὑρεθέντες ἐξ Ισραηλ καὶ οἱ προσήλυτοι οἱ ἐλθόντες ἀπὸ γῆς Ισραηλ καὶ οἱ κατοικοῦντες ἐν Ιουδα 26 καὶ ἐγένετο εὐφροσύνη μεγάλη ἐν Ιερουσαλημ ἀπὸ ἡμερῶν Σαλωμων υἱοῦ Δαυιδ βασιλέως Ισραηλ οὐκ ἐγένετο τοιαύτη ἑορτὴ ἐν Ιερουσαλημ 27 καὶ ἀνέστησαν οἱ ἱερεῖς οἱ Λευῖται καὶ ηὐλόγησαν τὸν λαόν καὶ ἐπηκούσθη ἡ φωνὴ αὐτῶν καὶ ἦλθεν ἡ προσευχὴ αὐτῶν εἰς τὸ κατοικητήριον τὸ ἅγιον αὐτοῦ εἰς τὸν οὐρανόν 21 So, amid great rejoicing, for seven days together, all the Israelites assembled at Jerusalem kept the feast of unleavened bread. Day by day priest and Levite stood there praising the Lord as best their music might; 22 Ezechias himself spoke to hearten them, sons of Levi that had such skill in the Lord’s service. All the seven days of the feast they ate the victims of their own welcome-offerings, giving thanks to the Lord, their fathers’ God. 23 And now the whole multitude resolved to keep festival seven days more, and right gladly they did it. 24 A thousand bulls and seven thousand sheep were given to them by king Ezechias, a thousand bulls and ten thousand sheep by the nobles; task enough for the many priests that had cleansed themselves by now. 25 Glad was Juda that day, glad were priest and Levite, and new-comers from Israel, and men of alien birth from Israel’s domain and Juda’s alike; 26 such high festival was kept in Jerusalem as the city had never seen since the days of David’s son Solomon, that was king of all Israel. 27 Then priests and Levites stood up to bless the people, nor did their voices go unheard; heaven’s holy dwelling-place echoed to their prayer. 21 Feceruntque filii Israël, qui inventi sunt in Jerusalem, solemnitatem azymorum septem diebus in lætitia magna, laudantes Dominum per singulos dies: Levitæ quoque et sacerdotes per organa quæ suo officio congruebant. 22 Et locutus est Ezechias ad cor omnium Levitarum qui habebant intelligentiam bonam super Domino: et comederunt septem diebus solemnitatis, immolantes victimas pacificorum, et laudantes Dominum Deum patrum suorum. 23 Placuitque universæ multitudini ut celebrarent etiam alios dies septem: quod et fecerunt cum ingenti gaudio. 24 Ezechias enim rex Juda præbuerat multitudini mille tauros, et septem millia ovium: principes vero dederant populo tauros mille, et oves decem millia: sanctificata est ergo sacerdotum plurima multitudo. 25 Et hilaritate perfusa omnis turba Juda, tam sacerdotum et Levitarum, quam universæ frequentiæ quæ venerat ex Israël: proselytorum quoque de terra Israël, et habitantium in Juda. 26 Factaque est grandis celebritas in Jerusalem, qualis a diebus Salomonis filii David regis Israël in ea urbe non fuerat. 27 Surrexerunt autem sacerdotes atque Levitæ benedicentes populo: et exaudita est vox eorum, pervenitque oratio in habitaculum sanctum cæli.
