1 καὶ ἐβασίλευσαν οἱ κατοικοῦντες ἐν Ιερουσαλημ τὸν Οχοζιαν υἱὸν αὐτοῦ τὸν μικρὸν ἀν{T'} αὐτοῦ ὅτι πάντας τοὺς πρεσβυτέρους ἀπέκτεινεν τὸ λῃστήριον τὸ ἐπελθὸν ἐ{P'} αὐτούς οἱ Ἄραβες καὶ οἱ Αλιμαζονεῖς καὶ ἐβασίλευσεν Οχοζιας υἱὸς Ιωραμ βασιλέως Ιουδα 2 ὢν εἴκοσι ἐτῶν Οχοζιας ἐβασίλευσεν καὶ ἐνιαυτὸν ἕνα ἐβασίλευσεν ἐν Ιερουσαλημ καὶ ὄνομα τῇ μητρὶ αὐτοῦ Γοθολια θυγάτηρ Αμβρι 3 καὶ οὗτος ἐπορεύθη ἐν ὁδῷ οἴκου Αχααβ ὅτι μήτηρ αὐτοῦ ἦν σύμβουλος τοῦ ἁμαρτάνειν 4 καὶ ἐποίησεν τὸ πονηρὸν ἐναντίον κυρίου ὡς οἶκος Αχααβ ὅτι αὐτοὶ ἦσαν αὐτῷ μετὰ τὸ ἀποθανεῖν τὸν πατέρα αὐτοῦ σύμβουλοι τοῦ ἐξολεθρεῦσαι αὐτόν 1 It was his youngest son, Ochozias, that the citizens of Jerusalem made king in his place. All his elder brothers had been killed by Arab freebooters, that fell on the camp where they were lodged; and so Ochozias became Joram’s heir, and reigned in Juda. 2 When he came to the throne, he had lived (twice) a score of years and two,[1] and his reign at Jerusalem lasted but a year. His mother’s name was Athalia, descended from Amri. 3 He too followed the example of Achab’s line, his mother prompting him to impious deeds. 4 Little wonder if he defied the Lord’s will no less than Achab’s race, since these were his counsellors, to his undoing, after his father died. 1 Constituerunt autem habitatores Jerusalem Ochoziam filium ejus minimum regem pro eo: omnes enim majores natu, qui ante eum fuerant, interfecerant latrones Arabum qui irruerant in castra: regnavitque Ochozias filius Joram regis Juda. 2 Quadraginta duorum annorum erat Ochozias cum regnare cœpisset, et uno anno regnavit in Jerusalem: et nomen matris ejus Athalia filia Amri. 3 Sed et ipse ingressus est per vias domus Achab: mater enim ejus impulit eum ut impie ageret. 4 Fecit igitur malum in conspectu Domini, sicut domus Achab: ipsi enim fuerunt ei consiliarii post mortem patris sui, in interitum ejus:
5 καὶ ἐν ταῖς βουλαῖς αὐτῶν ἐπορεύθη καὶ ἐπορεύθη μετὰ Ιωραμ υἱοῦ Αχααβ εἰς πόλεμον ἐπὶ Αζαηλ βασιλέα Συρίας εἰς Ραμα Γαλααδ καὶ ἐπάταξαν οἱ τοξόται τὸν Ιωραμ 6 καὶ ἐπέστρεψεν Ιωραμ τοῦ ἰατρευθῆναι εἰς Ιεζραελ ἀπὸ τῶν πληγῶν ὧν ἐπάταξαν αὐτὸν οἱ Σύροι ἐν Ραμα ἐν τῷ πολεμεῖν αὐτὸν πρὸς Αζαηλ βασιλέα Συρίας καὶ Οχοζιας υἱὸς Ιωραμ βασιλεὺς Ιουδα κατέβη θεάσασθαι τὸν Ιωραμ υἱὸν Αχααβ εἰς Ιεζραελ ὅτι ἠρρώστει 7 καὶ παρὰ τοῦ θεοῦ ἐγένετο καταστροφὴ Οχοζια ἐλθεῖν πρὸς Ιωραμ καὶ ἐν τῷ ἐλθεῖν αὐτὸν ἐξῆλθεν με{T'} αὐτοῦ Ιωραμ πρὸς Ιου υἱὸν Ναμεσσι χριστὸν κυρίου τὸν οἶκον Αχααβ 8 καὶ ἐγένετο ὡς ἐξεδίκησεν Ιου τὸν οἶκον Αχααβ καὶ εὗρεν τοὺς ἄρχοντας Ιουδα καὶ τοὺς ἀδελφοὺς Οχοζια λειτουργοῦντας τῷ Οχοζια καὶ ἀπέκτεινεν αὐτούς 9 καὶ εἶπεν τοῦ ζητῆσαι τὸν Οχοζιαν καὶ κατέλαβον αὐτὸν ἰατρευόμενον ἐν Σαμαρείᾳ καὶ ἤγαγον αὐτὸν πρὸς Ιου καὶ ἀπέκτεινεν αὐτόν καὶ ἔθαψαν αὐτόν ὅτι εἶπαν υἱὸς Ιωσαφατ ἐστίν ὃς ἐζήτησεν τὸν κύριον ἐν ὅλῃ καρδίᾳ αὐτοῦ καὶ οὐκ ἦν ἐν οἴκῳ Οχοζια κατισχῦσαι δύναμιν περὶ τῆς βασιλείας 10 καὶ Γοθολια ἡ μήτηρ Οχοζια εἶδεν ὅτι τέθνηκεν αὐτῆς ὁ υἱός καὶ ἠγέρθη καὶ ἀπώλεσεν πᾶν τὸ σπέρμα τῆς βασιλείας ἐν οἴκῳ Ιουδα 11 καὶ ἔλαβεν Ιωσαβεθ ἡ θυγάτηρ τοῦ βασιλέως τὸν Ιωας υἱὸν Οχοζια καὶ ἔκλεψεν αὐτὸν ἐκ μέσου υἱῶν τοῦ βασιλέως τῶν θανατουμένων καὶ ἔδωκεν αὐτὸν καὶ τὴν τροφὸν αὐτοῦ εἰς ταμίειον τῶν κλινῶν καὶ ἔκρυψεν αὐτὸν Ιωσαβεθ θυγάτηρ τοῦ βασιλέως Ιωραμ ἀδελφὴ Οχοζιου γυνὴ Ιωδαε τοῦ ἱερέως καὶ ἔκρυψεν αὐτὸν ἀπὸ προσώπου Γοθολιας καὶ οὐκ ἀπέκτεινεν αὐτόν 12 καὶ ἦν με{T'} αὐτῆς ἐν οἴκῳ τοῦ θεοῦ κατακεκρυμμένος ἓξ ἔτη καὶ Γοθολια ἐβασίλευσεν ἐπὶ τῆς γῆς 5 He shared, too, their designs, and marched with the king of Israel, Joram that was son to Achab, against Hazael, king of Syria. They met at Ramoth-Galaad, and there Joram was wounded by the Syrians, 6 so that he must go back to Jezrahel to recover; wounds a many he had received in the battle we speak of. And when Joram, son of Achab, lay sick at Jezrahel, Ochozias son of Joram king of Juda came there to visit him.[2] 7 It was the divine will, for Ochozias’ punishment, that he should pay Joram this visit, and with him should offer battle to Jehu, son of Namsi, whom the Lord had anointed king to make an end of Achab’s line. 8 Jehu it was that fell in with the princes of Juda, sons of Ochozias’ kinsmen and courtiers of his, and slew them, at the time when he was exterminating the line of Achab; 9 Jehu it was that made enquiry after Ochozias himself, who was found still hiding in the kingdom of Samaria, and so brought before him and slain. Yet he was given burial; was he not descended from king Josaphat, a king who had set his whole heart on following the Lord?[3]

Little hope there seemed then of Juda being governed any longer by Ochozias’ kindred. 10 The more so because his mother, Athalia, no sooner heard the news of her son’s death, than she set about exterminating all the blood royal of Joram’s dynasty. 11 Only Joas, Ochozias’ son, was rescued by the princess Josabeth, who stole him away while all the other princes were being slain, and hid him, with his nurse, in the room where the bedding was stored up. This Josabeth, who hid him, was a daughter of king Joram’s, sister to Ochozias and wife to the high priest Joiada. Joas, then, escaped murder at Athalia’s hands, 12 and for the six years of her life that remained he was hidden away in the house of God.
5 ambulavitque in consiliis eorum. Et perrexit cum Joram filio Achab rege Israël in bellum contra Hazaël regem Syriæ in Ramoth Galaad: vulneraveruntque Syri Joram. 6 Qui reversus est ut curaretur in Jezrahel: multas enim plagas acceperat in supradicto certamine. Igitur Ochozias filius Joram rex Juda descendit ut inviseret Joram filium Achab in Jezrahel ægrotantem. 7 Voluntatis quippe fuit Dei adversus Ochoziam, ut veniret ad Joram: et cum venisset, et egrederetur cum eo adversum Jehu filium Namsi, quem unxit Dominus ut deleret domum Achab. 8 Cum ergo everteret Jehu domum Achab, invenit principes Juda, et filios fratrum Ochoziæ, qui ministrabant ei, et interfecit illos. 9 Ipsum quoque perquirens Ochoziam, comprehendit latitantem in Samaria: adductumque ad se, occidit: et sepelierunt eum, eo quod esset filius Josaphat, qui quæsierat Dominum in toto corde suo.

Nec erat ultra spes aliqua ut de stirpe quis regnaret Ochoziæ:
10 siquidem Athalia mater ejus, videns quod mortuus esset filius suus, surrexit, et interfecit omnem stirpem regiam domus Joram. 11 Porro Josabeth filia regis tulit Joas filium Ochoziæ, et furata est eum de medio filiorum regis, cum interficerentur: absconditque eum cum nutrice sua in cubiculo lectulorum: Josabeth autem, quæ absconderat eum, erat filia regis Joram, uxor Jojadæ pontificis, soror Ochoziæ: et idcirco Athalia non interfecit eum. 12 Fuit ergo cum eis in domo Dei absconditus sex annis, quibus regnavit Athalia super terram.
