1 καὶ ἐν τῷ ἔτει τῷ ἑβδόμῳ ἐκραταίωσεν Ιωδαε καὶ ἔλαβεν τοὺς ἑκατοντάρχους τὸν Αζαριαν υἱὸν Ιωραμ καὶ τὸν Ισμαηλ υἱὸν Ιωαναν καὶ τὸν Αζαριαν υἱὸν Ωβηδ καὶ τὸν Μαασαιαν υἱὸν Αδαια καὶ τὸν Ελισαφαν υἱὸν Ζαχαρια με{T'} αὐτοῦ εἰς οἶκον 2 καὶ ἐκύκλωσαν τὸν Ιουδαν καὶ συνήγαγον τοὺς Λευίτας ἐκ πασῶν τῶν πόλεων Ιουδα καὶ ἄρχοντας πατριῶν τοῦ Ισραηλ καὶ ἦλθον εἰς Ιερουσαλημ 3 καὶ διέθεντο πᾶσα ἐκκλησία Ιουδα διαθήκην ἐν οἴκῳ τοῦ θεοῦ μετὰ τοῦ βασιλέως καὶ ἔδειξεν αὐτοῖς τὸν υἱὸν τοῦ βασιλέως καὶ εἶπεν αὐτοῖς ἰδοὺ ὁ υἱὸς τοῦ βασιλέως βασιλευσάτω καθὼς ἐλάλησεν κύριος ἐπὶ τὸν οἶκον Δαυιδ 4 νῦν ὁ λόγος οὗτος ὃν ποιήσετε τὸ τρίτον ἐξ ὑμῶν εἰσπορευέσθωσαν τὸ σάββατον τῶν ἱερέων καὶ τῶν Λευιτῶν καὶ εἰς τὰς πύλας τῶν εἰσόδων 5 καὶ τὸ τρίτον ἐν οἴκῳ τοῦ βασιλέως καὶ τὸ τρίτον ἐν τῇ πύλῃ τῇ μέσῃ καὶ πᾶς ὁ λαὸς ἐν αὐλαῖς οἴκου κυρίου 6 καὶ μὴ εἰσελθέτω εἰς οἶκον κυρίου ἐὰν μὴ οἱ ἱερεῖς καὶ οἱ Λευῖται καὶ οἱ λειτουργοῦντες τῶν Λευιτῶν αὐτοὶ εἰσελεύσονται ὅτι ἅγιοί εἰσιν καὶ πᾶς ὁ λαὸς φυλασσέτω φυλακὰς κυρίου 7 καὶ κυκλώσουσιν οἱ Λευῖται τὸν βασιλέα κύκλῳ ἀνδρὸς σκεῦος ἐν χειρὶ αὐτοῦ καὶ ὁ εἰσπορευόμενος εἰς τὸν οἶκον ἀποθανεῖται καὶ ἔσονται μετὰ τοῦ βασιλέως εἰσπορευομένου καὶ ἐκπορευομένου 1 Then, in the seventh year, Joiada was emboldened to act. He took some of the captains into his confidence, Azarias son of Jeroham, Ismahel son of Johanan, Azarias son of Obed, Maasias son of Adaia and Elisaphat son of Zechri; 2 and these went round the whole of Juda, mustering the Levites and the clan chiefs in each city and summoning them to Jerusalem. 3 There, in the Lord’s own house, they all engaged their loyalty to the king; Here, said Joiada, is the heir to the throne; we must make him king, in pursuance of the Lord’s will for the posterity of David. 4 And now, here is your task. 5 Those of you, priests, Levites and door-keepers, whose turn it is to mount guard this week, will be keeping watch, a third of them over the gates, a third over the royal palace, and a third at the Foundation-stone Gate. All the rest are to be in the temple courts, 6 none entering the Lord’s house itself, except those who have kept themselves free of defilement for that end, priests and Levites who are their ministers, but all alike attentive to the Lord’s command. 7 The king must have a bodyguard of Levites, all fully armed, ready to slay anyone else who tries to enter the temple, attending the king closely wherever he goes. 1 Anno autem septimo, confortatus Jojada, assumpsit centuriones, Azariam videlicet filium Jeroham, et Ismahel filium Johanan, Azariam quoque filium Obed, et Maasiam filium Adaiæ, et Elisaphat filium Zechri: et iniit cum eis fœdus. 2 Qui circumeuntes Judam, congregaverunt Levitas de cunctis urbibus Juda, et principes familiarum Israël, veneruntque in Jerusalem. 3 Iniit ergo omnis multitudo pactum in domo Dei cum rege, dixitque ad eos Jojada: Ecce filius regis regnabit, sicut locutus est Dominus super filios David. 4 Iste est ergo sermo quem facietis: 5 tertia pars vestrum qui veniunt ad sabbatum, sacerdotum, et Levitarum, et janitorum erit in portis: tertia vero pars ad domum regis: et tertia ad portam quæ appellatur Fundamenti: omne vero reliquum vulgus sit in atriis domus Domini. 6 Nec quispiam alius ingrediatur domum Domini, nisi sacerdotes, et qui ministrant de Levitis: ipsi tantummodo ingrediantur, quia sanctificati sunt: et omne reliquum vulgus observet custodias Domini. 7 Levitæ autem circumdent regem, habentes singuli arma sua (et siquis alius ingressus fuerit templum, interficiatur), sintque cum rege et intrante et egrediente.
8 καὶ ἐποίησαν οἱ Λευῖται καὶ πᾶς Ιουδα κατὰ πάντα ὅσα ἐνετείλατο Ιωδαε ὁ ἱερεύς καὶ ἔλαβον ἕκαστος τοὺς ἄνδρας αὐτοῦ ἀ{P'} ἀρχῆς τοῦ σαββάτου ἕως ἐξόδου τοῦ σαββάτου ὅτι οὐ κατέλυσεν Ιωδαε τὰς ἐφημερίας 9 καὶ ἔδωκεν τὰς μαχαίρας καὶ τοὺς θυρεοὺς καὶ τὰ ὅπλα ἃ ἦν τοῦ βασιλέως Δαυιδ ἐν οἴκῳ τοῦ θεοῦ 10 καὶ ἔστησεν πάντα τὸν λαόν ἕκαστον ἐν τοῖς ὅπλοις αὐτοῦ ἀπὸ τῆς ὠμίας τοῦ οἴκου τῆς δεξιᾶς ἕως τῆς ὠμίας τῆς ἀριστερᾶς τοῦ θυσιαστηρίου καὶ τοῦ οἴκου ἐπὶ τὸν βασιλέα κύκλῳ 11 καὶ ἐξήγαγεν τὸν υἱὸν τοῦ βασιλέως καὶ ἔδωκεν ἐ{P'} αὐτὸν τὸ βασίλειον καὶ τὰ μαρτύρια καὶ ἐβασίλευσαν καὶ ἔχρισαν αὐτὸν Ιωδαε καὶ οἱ υἱοὶ αὐτοῦ καὶ εἶπαν ζήτω ὁ βασιλεύς 12 καὶ ἤκουσεν Γοθολια τὴν φωνὴν τοῦ λαοῦ τῶν τρεχόντων καὶ ἐξομολογουμένων καὶ αἰνούντων τὸν βασιλέα καὶ εἰσῆλθεν πρὸς τὸν βασιλέα εἰς οἶκον κυρίου 13 καὶ εἶδεν καὶ ἰδοὺ ὁ βασιλεὺς ἐπὶ τῆς στάσεως αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐπὶ τῆς εἰσόδου οἱ ἄρχοντες καὶ αἱ σάλπιγγες περὶ τὸν βασιλέα καὶ πᾶς ὁ λαὸς ηὐφράνθη καὶ ἐσάλπισαν ἐν ταῖς σάλπιγξιν καὶ οἱ ᾄδοντες ἐν τοῖς ὀργάνοις ᾠδοὶ καὶ ὑμνοῦντες αἶνον καὶ διέρρηξεν Γοθολια τὴν στολὴν αὐτῆς καὶ ἐβόησεν καὶ εἶπεν ἐπιτιθέμενοι ἐπιτίθεσθε 14 καὶ ἐξῆλθεν Ιωδαε ὁ ἱερεύς καὶ ἐνετείλατο Ιωδαε ὁ ἱερεὺς τοῖς ἑκατοντάρχοις καὶ τοῖς ἀρχηγοῖς τῆς δυνάμεως καὶ εἶπεν αὐτοῖς ἐκβάλετε αὐτὴν ἐκτὸς τοῦ οἴκου καὶ εἰσέλθατε ὀπίσω αὐτῆς καὶ ἀποθανέτω μαχαίρᾳ ὅτι εἶπεν ὁ ἱερεύς μὴ ἀποθανέτω ἐν οἴκῳ κυρίου 15 καὶ ἔδωκαν αὐτῇ ἄνεσιν καὶ διῆλθεν διὰ τῆς πύλης τῶν ἱππέων τοῦ οἴκου τοῦ βασιλέως καὶ ἐθανάτωσαν αὐτὴν ἐκεῖ 8 All the commands which the high priest Joiada gave them, the Levites, and the rest of Juda with them, faithfully carried out; mustered their men, alike those who mounted guard and those who were relieved of duty that week, since the high priest would not let the companies who had finished go home. 9 Joiada supplied the captains with spears, shields and bucklers, that king David had put up as offerings in the Lord’s house; 10 and from right to left of the temple, facing the altar and the temple itself, he drew up the whole array of his supporters, that were armed with daggers, to protect the king. 11 Then they brought the young prince out, and gave him the crown and the pledge that went with it, a copy of the law to be held in his hand, and so they made him king. The high priest Joiada, with his sons, anointed him and prayed over him, and cried out, Long live the king! 12 Meanwhile, the noise of all this stir and shouting reached the ears of Athalia, and she made her way into the temple, where the crowd was gathered, 13 to find the king standing on a dais, there at the entry, with chieftains and bodyguard about him, while all the folk rejoiced, blowing trumpets and playing on instruments of many kinds, and shouting their praises. Well might she rend her clothes, and cry out, Treason, treason! 14 Thereupon Joiada came out, and bade the captains and the commanders of the army lead her away beyond the temple precincts, and there dispatch her; She must not be slain in the Lord’s house, the priest told them. 15 So they caught her by the neck, and as she passed along the horse-way that leads to the palace, she was slain. 8 Fecerunt ergo Levitæ, et universus Juda, juxta omnia quæ præceperat Jojada pontifex: et assumpserunt singuli viros qui sub se erant, et veniebant per ordinem sabbati, cum his qui impleverant sabbatum et egressuri erant: siquidem Jojada pontifex non dimiserat abire turmas quæ sibi per singulas hebdomadas succedere consueverant. 9 Deditque Jojada sacerdos centurionibus lanceas, clypeosque et peltas regis David, quas consecraverat in domo Domini. 10 Constituitque omnem populum tenentium pugiones a parte templi dextra, usque ad partem templi sinistram, coram altari et templo, per circuitum regis. 11 Et eduxerunt filium regis, et imposuerunt ei diadema et testimonium, dederuntque in manu ejus tenendam legem, et constituerunt eum regem: unxit quoque illum Jojada pontifex, et filii ejus: imprecatique sunt ei, atque dixerunt: Vivat rex. 12 Quod cum audisset Athalia, vocem scilicet currentium atque laudantium regem, ingressa est ad populum in templum Domini. 13 Cumque vidisset regem stantem super gradum in introitu, et principes, turmasque circa eum, omnemque populum terræ gaudentem, atque clangentem tubis, et diversi generis organis concinentem, vocemque laudantium, scidit vestimenta sua, et ait: Insidiæ, insidiæ. 14 Egressus autem Jojada pontifex ad centuriones et principes exercitus, dixit eis: Educite illam extra septa templi, et interficiatur foris gladio. Præcepitque sacerdos ne occideretur in domo Domini, 15 et imposuerunt cervicibus ejus manus: cumque intrasset portam equorum domus regis, interfecerunt eam ibi.
16 καὶ διέθετο Ιωδαε διαθήκην ἀνὰ μέσον αὐτοῦ καὶ τοῦ λαοῦ καὶ τοῦ βασιλέως εἶναι λαὸν τῷ κυρίῳ 17 καὶ εἰσῆλθεν πᾶς ὁ λαὸς τῆς γῆς εἰς οἶκον Βααλ καὶ κατέσπασαν αὐτὸν καὶ τὰ θυσιαστήρια καὶ τὰ εἴδωλα αὐτοῦ ἐλέπτυναν καὶ τὸν Ματθαν ἱερέα τῆς Βααλ ἐθανάτωσαν ἐναντίον τῶν θυσιαστηρίων αὐτοῦ 18 καὶ ἐνεχείρησεν Ιωδαε ὁ ἱερεὺς τὰ ἔργα οἴκου κυρίου διὰ χειρὸς ἱερέων καὶ Λευιτῶν καὶ ἀνέστησεν τὰς ἐφημερίας τῶν ἱερέων καὶ τῶν Λευιτῶν ἃς διέστειλεν Δαυιδ ἐπὶ τὸν οἶκον κυρίου καὶ ἀνενέγκαι ὁλοκαυτώματα κυρίῳ καθὼς γέγραπται ἐν νόμῳ Μωυσῆ ἐν εὐφροσύνῃ καὶ ἐν ᾠδαῖς διὰ χειρὸς Δαυιδ 19 καὶ ἔστησαν οἱ πυλωροὶ ἐπὶ τὰς πύλας οἴκου κυρίου καὶ οὐκ εἰσελεύσεται ἀκάθαρτος εἰς πᾶν πρᾶγμα 20 καὶ ἔλαβεν τοὺς πατριάρχας καὶ τοὺς δυνατοὺς καὶ τοὺς ἄρχοντας τοῦ λαοῦ καὶ πάντα τὸν λαὸν τῆς γῆς καὶ ἀνεβίβασαν τὸν βασιλέα εἰς οἶκον κυρίου καὶ εἰσῆλθεν διὰ τῆς πύλης τῆς ἐσωτέρας εἰς τὸν οἶκον τοῦ βασιλέως καὶ ἐκάθισαν τὸν βασιλέα ἐπὶ τὸν θρόνον τῆς βασιλείας 21 καὶ ηὐφράνθη πᾶς ὁ λαὸς τῆς γῆς καὶ ἡ πόλις ἡσύχασεν καὶ τὴν Γοθολιαν ἐθανάτωσαν μαχαίρᾳ 16 After this, Joiada would have a covenant made, that bound himself and the people and the new king to be the Lord’s own people. 17 And the whole populace went into Baal’s temple and destroyed it, breaking down its altars and its images, and killing Mathan, that was Baal’s priest, there before the altar. 18 Then Joiada set up officers to look after the Lord’s temple; but under the direction of those priests and Levites to whom David had assigned their tasks there, in offering burnt-sacrifice to the Lord as Moses bade them, and singing praise after David’s own fashion. 19 Porters, too, he placed at all the temple gates, that should forbid entry to all who were in any way defiled. 20 Then, with the captains and the men of renown, with the nobles and all the common folk of the land, he escorted the king from the Lord’s house by way of the upper gate into the palace, and there they set him on his royal throne. 21 All through the land were great rejoicings, and the city had rest, now that Athalia lay dead.[1] 16 Pepigit autem Jojada fœdus inter se, universumque populum, et regem, ut esset populus Domini. 17 Itaque ingressus est omnis populus domum Baal, et destruxerunt eam, et altaria ac simulacra illius confregerunt: Mathan quoque sacerdotem Baal interfecerunt ante aras. 18 Constituit autem Jojada præpositos in domo Domini sub manibus sacerdotum et Levitarum quos distribuit David in domo Domini, ut offerrent holocausta Domino, sicut scriptum est in lege Moysi, in gaudio et canticis, juxta dispositionem David. 19 Constituit quoque janitores in portis domus Domini, ut non ingrederetur eam immundus in omni re. 20 Assumpsitque centuriones, et fortissimos viros, ac principes populi, et omne vulgus terræ, et fecerunt descendere regem de domo Domini, et introire per medium portæ superioris in domum regis, et collocaverunt eum in solio regali. 21 Lætatusque est omnis populus terræ, et urbs quievit: porro Athalia interfecta est gladio.
