1 καὶ ἐκοιμήθη Ιωσαφατ μετὰ τῶν πατέρων αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐτάφη παρὰ τοῖς πατράσιν αὐτοῦ ἐν πόλει Δαυιδ καὶ ἐβασίλευσεν Ιωραμ υἱὸς αὐτοῦ ἀν{T'} αὐτοῦ 2 καὶ αὐτῷ ἀδελφοὶ υἱοὶ Ιωσαφατ ἕξ Αζαριας καὶ Ιιηλ καὶ Ζαχαριας καὶ Αζαριας καὶ Μιχαηλ καὶ Σαφατιας πάντες οὗτοι υἱοὶ Ιωσαφατ βασιλέως Ιουδα 3 καὶ ἔδωκεν αὐτοῖς ὁ πατὴρ αὐτῶν δόματα πολλά ἀργύριον καὶ χρυσίον καὶ ὅπλα μετὰ πόλεων τετειχισμένων ἐν Ιουδα καὶ τὴν βασιλείαν ἔδωκεν τῷ Ιωραμ ὅτι οὗτος ὁ πρωτότοκος 4 καὶ ἀνέστη Ιωραμ ἐπὶ τὴν βασιλείαν αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐκραταιώθη καὶ ἀπέκτεινεν πάντας τοὺς ἀδελφοὺς αὐτοῦ ἐν ῥομφαίᾳ καὶ ἀπὸ τῶν ἀρχόντων Ισραηλ 1 Josaphat, then, was laid to rest with his fathers, with the Keep of David for his burying-place, and the throne passed to his son Joram. 2 Many brothers Joram had, princes of the blood; Azarias, Jahiel, Zacharias (Azarias), Michael and Saphatias were all sons of Josaphat, king of Juda, 3 and to all these their father gave rich presents of silver and gold, money for their needs, and walled cities in Juda to be their homes, but to Joram, the eldest, he left his kingdom. 4 So Joram came to his father’s throne, and when he was firmly established on it, he slew all these brethren of his, and some of the chief men of Juda with them. 1 Dormivit autem Josaphat cum patribus suis, et sepultus est cum eis in civitate David: regnavitque Joram filius ejus pro eo. 2 Qui habuit fratres filios Josaphat, Azariam, et Jahiel, et Zachariam, et Azariam, et Michaël, et Saphatiam: omnes hi filii Josaphat regis Juda. 3 Deditque eis pater suus multa munera argenti et auri, et pensitationes, cum civitatibus munitissimis in Juda: regnum autem tradidit Joram, eo quod esset primogenitus. 4 Surrexit ergo Joram super regnum patris sui: cumque se confirmasset, occidit omnes fratres suos gladio, et quosdam de principibus Israël.
5 ὄντος αὐτοῦ τριάκοντα καὶ δύο ἐτῶν κατέστη Ιωραμ ἐπὶ τὴν βασιλείαν αὐτοῦ καὶ ὀκτὼ ἔτη ἐβασίλευσεν ἐν Ιερουσαλημ 6 καὶ ἐπορεύθη ἐν ὁδῷ βασιλέων Ισραηλ ὡς ἐποίησεν οἶκος Αχααβ ὅτι θυγάτηρ Αχααβ ἦν αὐτοῦ γυνή καὶ ἐποίησεν τὸ πονηρὸν ἐναντίον κυρίου 7 καὶ οὐκ ἐβούλετο κύριος ἐξολεθρεῦσαι τὸν οἶκον Δαυιδ διὰ τὴν διαθήκην ἣν διέθετο τῷ Δαυιδ καὶ ὡς εἶπεν αὐτῷ δοῦναι αὐτῷ λύχνον καὶ τοῖς υἱοῖς αὐτοῦ πάσας τὰς ἡμέρας 8 ἐν ταῖς ἡμέραις ἐκείναις ἀπέστη Εδωμ ἀπὸ τοῦ Ιουδα καὶ ἐβασίλευσαν ἐ{F'} ἑαυτοὺς βασιλέα 9 καὶ ᾤχετο Ιωραμ μετὰ τῶν ἀρχόντων καὶ πᾶσα ἡ ἵππος με{T'} αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐγένετο καὶ ἠγέρθη νυκτὸς καὶ ἐπάταξεν Εδωμ τὸν κυκλοῦντα αὐτὸν καὶ τοὺς ἄρχοντας τῶν ἁρμάτων καὶ ἔφυγεν ὁ λαὸς εἰς τὰ σκηνώματα αὐτῶν 10 καὶ ἀπέστη ἀπὸ Ιουδα Εδωμ ἕως τῆς ἡμέρας ταύτης τότε ἀπέστη Λομνα ἐν τῷ καιρῷ ἐκείνῳ ἀπὸ χειρὸς αὐτοῦ ὅτι ἐγκατέλιπεν κύριον θεὸν τῶν πατέρων αὐτοῦ 11 καὶ γὰρ αὐτὸς ἐποίησεν ὑψηλὰ ἐν πόλεσιν Ιουδα καὶ ἐξεπόρνευσεν τοὺς κατοικοῦντας ἐν Ιερουσαλημ καὶ ἀπεπλάνησεν τὸν Ιουδαν 5 This Joram was thirty-two years old when he became king, and his reign at Jerusalem lasted eight years. 6 He followed the example of the Israelite kings, just as Achab’s line did; he himself had married a daughter of Achab’s. So he defied the Lord’s will; 7 but the Lord would not bring ruin upon David’s race; had he not made a covenant with him, promising to keep the lamp of his line unquenched for ever? 8 It was in Joram’s days that the Edomites renounced their allegiance to Juda, and set up a king of their own choice. 9 Joram indeed marched out across the river, with his captains and all the horsemen he could muster, and when the Edomites surrounded him, he broke through them with a night attack, broke through the commanders of their chariots; 10 but Edom has never been subject to Juda from that day to this. Lobna, at the same time, revolted from his allegiance.[1] An ill day it was for him when he forsook the Lord, the God of his fathers, 11 raised hill-shrines in the cities of his realm, taught Jerusalem to betray her troth, and made sinners of Juda. 5 Triginta duorum annorum erat Joram cum regnare cœpisset, et octo annis regnavit in Jerusalem. 6 Ambulavitque in viis regum Israël, sicut egerat domus Achab: filia quippe Achab erat uxor ejus: et fecit malum in conspectu Domini. 7 Noluit autem Dominus disperdere domum David propter pactum quod inierat cum eo: et quia promiserat ut daret ei lucernam, et filiis ejus omni tempore. 8 In diebus illis rebellavit Edom, ne esset subditus Judæ, et constituit sibi regem. 9 Cumque transisset Joram cum principibus suis, et cuncto equitatu qui erat secum, surrexit nocte, et percussit Edom, qui se circumdederat, et omnes duces equitatus ejus. 10 Attamen rebellavit Edom, ne esset sub ditione Juda usque ad hanc diem: eo tempore et Lobna recessit ne esset sub manu illius. Dereliquerat enim Dominum Deum patrum suorum: 11 insuper et excelsa fabricatus est in urbibus Juda, et fornicari fecit habitatores Jerusalem, et prævaricari Judam.
12 καὶ ἦλθεν αὐτῷ ἐγγραφὴ παρὰ Ηλιου τοῦ προφήτου λέγων τάδε λέγει κύριος ὁ θεὸς Δαυιδ τοῦ πατρός σου ἀν{Q'} ὧν οὐκ ἐπορεύθης ἐν ὁδῷ Ιωσαφατ τοῦ πατρός σου καὶ ἐν ὁδοῖς Ασα βασιλέως Ιουδα 13 καὶ ἐπορεύθης ἐν ὁδοῖς βασιλέων Ισραηλ καὶ ἐξεπόρνευσας τὸν Ιουδαν καὶ τοὺς κατοικοῦντας ἐν Ιερουσαλημ ὡς ἐξεπόρνευσεν οἶκος Αχααβ καὶ τοὺς ἀδελφούς σου υἱοὺς τοῦ πατρός σου τοὺς ἀγαθοὺς ὑπὲρ σὲ ἀπέκτεινας 14 ἰδοὺ κύριος πατάξει σε πληγὴν μεγάλην ἐν τῷ λαῷ σου καὶ ἐν τοῖς υἱοῖς σου καὶ ἐν γυναιξίν σου καὶ ἐν πάσῃ τῇ ἀποσκευῇ σου 15 καὶ σὺ ἐν μαλακίᾳ πονηρᾷ ἐν νόσῳ κοιλίας ἕως οὗ ἐξέλθῃ ἡ κοιλία σου μετὰ τῆς μαλακίας ἐξ ἡμερῶν εἰς ἡμέρας 12 A letter, too, was brought to him, written by the prophet Elias, with a message from the Lord, the God of his father David: Not for thee the example of thy father Josaphat, and of king Asa, that reigned in Juda before thee; 13 thou wouldst play the wanton, like the house of Achab, teach the men of Juda and Jerusalem to betray their troth, after Israel’s fashion, and wouldst slay thy brethren, princes of thy own father’s line, better men than thyself. 14 A heavy punishment the Lord will send upon thee, taking toll of thy people, of thy sons, of thy wives, and of all thou hast; 15 and for thyself, a foul disease shall attack thy inward parts, that grows worse from day to day until thy very bowels drop out. 12 Allatæ sunt autem ei litteræ ab Elia propheta, in quibus scriptum erat: Hæc dicit Dominus Deus David patris tui: Quoniam non ambulasti in viis Josaphat patris tui, et in viis Asa regis Juda, 13 sed incessisti per iter regum Israël, et fornicari fecisti Judam et habitatores Jerusalem, imitatus fornicationem domus Achab, insuper et fratres tuos, domum patris tui, meliores te, occidisti: 14 ecce Dominus percutiet te plaga magna cum populo tuo, et filiis, et uxoribus tuis, universaque substantia tua. 15 Tu autem ægrotabis pessimo languore uteri tui, donec egrediantur vitalia tua paulatim per singulos dies.
16 καὶ ἐπήγειρεν κύριος ἐπὶ Ιωραμ τοὺς ἀλλοφύλους καὶ τοὺς Ἄραβας καὶ τοὺς ὁμόρους τῶν Αἰθιόπων 17 καὶ ἀνέβησαν ἐπὶ Ιουδαν καὶ κατεδυνάστευον καὶ ἀπέστρεψαν πᾶσαν τὴν ἀποσκευήν ἣν εὗρον ἐν οἴκῳ τοῦ βασιλέως καὶ τοὺς υἱοὺς αὐτοῦ καὶ τὰς θυγατέρας αὐτοῦ καὶ οὐ κατελείφθη αὐτῷ υἱὸς ἀλ{L'} ἢ Οχοζιας ὁ μικρότατος τῶν υἱῶν αὐτοῦ 18 καὶ μετὰ ταῦτα πάντα ἐπάταξεν αὐτὸν κύριος εἰς τὴν κοιλίαν μαλακίᾳ ἐν ᾗ οὐκ ἔστιν ἰατρεία 19 καὶ ἐγένετο ἐξ ἡμερῶν εἰς ἡμέρας καὶ ὡς ἦλθεν καιρὸς τῶν ἡμερῶν ἡμέρας δύο ἐξῆλθεν ἡ κοιλία αὐτοῦ μετὰ τῆς νόσου καὶ ἀπέθανεν ἐν μαλακίᾳ πονηρᾷ καὶ οὐκ ἐποίησεν ὁ λαὸς αὐτοῦ ἐκφορὰν καθὼς ἐκφορὰν πατέρων αὐτοῦ 20 ἦν τριάκοντα καὶ δύο ἐτῶν ὅτε ἐβασίλευσεν καὶ ὀκτὼ ἔτη ἐβασίλευσεν ἐν Ιερουσαλημ καὶ ἐπορεύθη ἐν οὐκ ἐπαίνῳ καὶ ἐτάφη ἐν πόλει Δαυιδ καὶ οὐκ ἐν τάφοις τῶν βασιλέων 16 After this, the Lord embroiled the Philistines against Joram, and the Arab tribesmen, too, that dwell next the Ethiopians. 17 These marched upon Juda and ravaged it, carrying off all the palace treasures, and his sons and wives with them; never a son was left to Joram but Joachaz, the youngest of all.[2] 18 And, not content with this, the Lord smote him with an incurable disease of his inward parts. 19 Wearily the days passed, lengthened themselves out till two whole years had run their course; till at last he voided his very bowels, and his sickness ended only with death. Right foul was the manner of his ending, and his subjects made no burning at his funeral, as they did for his ancestors. 20 He had reigned but eight years, that was thirty-two years old when he came to the throne; a life ill lived. And they laid him to rest in David’s Keep, but not in the burying-place of the kings. 16 Suscitavit ergo Dominus contra Joram spiritum Philisthinorum, et Arabum qui confines sunt Æthiopibus: 17 et ascenderunt in terram Juda, et vastaverunt eam, diripueruntque cunctam substantiam quæ inventa est in domo regis, insuper et filios ejus, et uxores: nec remansit ei filius, nisi Joachaz, qui minimus natu erat. 18 Et super hæc omnia percussit eum Dominus alvi languore insanabili. 19 Cumque diei succederet dies, et temporum spatia volverentur, duorum annorum expletus est circulus: et sic longa consumptus tabe, ita ut egereret etiam viscera sua, languore pariter, et vita caruit. Mortuusque est in infirmitate pessima, et non fecit ei populus secundum morem combustionis exequias, sicut fecerat majoribus ejus. 20 Triginta duorum annorum fuit cum regnare cœpisset, et octo annis regnavit in Jerusalem. Ambulavitque non recte, et sepelierunt eum in civitate David, verumtamen non in sepulchro regum.
