1 καὶ ὡς συνετελέσθη πάντα ταῦτα ἐξῆλθεν πᾶς Ισραηλ οἱ εὑρεθέντες ἐν πόλεσιν Ιουδα καὶ συνέτριψαν τὰς στήλας καὶ ἐξέκοψαν τὰ ἄλση καὶ κατέσπασαν τὰ ὑψηλὰ καὶ τοὺς βωμοὺς ἀπὸ πάσης τῆς Ιουδαίας καὶ Βενιαμιν καὶ ἐξ Εφραιμ καὶ ἀπὸ Μανασση ἕως εἰς τέλος καὶ ἐπέστρεψαν πᾶς Ισραηλ ἕκαστος εἰς τὴν κληρονομίαν αὐτοῦ καὶ εἰς τὰς πόλεις αὐτῶν 1 When this was duly done, all the Israelites there assembled went about among the cities of Juda, breaking the idols and cutting down the shrines from forest and hill-side, and destroying the altars; and this they did not only in Juda and Benjamin, but all over the territory of Ephraim and Manasses, till none were left. Then the Israelites made their way home to their own cities. 1 Cumque hæc fuissent rite celebrata, egressus est omnis Israël qui inventus fuerat in urbibus Juda, et fregerunt simulacra, succideruntque lucos, demoliti sunt excelsa, et altaria destruxerunt, non solum de universo Juda et Benjamin, sed et de Ephraim quoque et Manasse, donec penitus everterent: reversique sunt omnes filii Israël in possessiones et civitates suas.
2 καὶ ἔταξεν Εζεκιας τὰς ἐφημερίας τῶν ἱερέων καὶ τῶν Λευιτῶν καὶ τὰς ἐφημερίας ἑκάστου κατὰ τὴν ἑαυτοῦ λειτουργίαν τοῖς ἱερεῦσιν καὶ τοῖς Λευίταις εἰς τὴν ὁλοκαύτωσιν καὶ εἰς τὴν θυσίαν τοῦ σωτηρίου καὶ αἰνεῖν καὶ ἐξομολογεῖσθαι καὶ λειτουργεῖν ἐν ταῖς πύλαις ἐν ταῖς αὐλαῖς οἴκου κυρίου 3 καὶ μερὶς τοῦ βασιλέως ἐκ τῶν ὑπαρχόντων αὐτοῦ εἰς τὰς ὁλοκαυτώσεις τὴν πρωινὴν καὶ τὴν δειλινὴν καὶ ὁλοκαυτώσεις εἰς σάββατα καὶ εἰς τὰς νουμηνίας καὶ εἰς τὰς ἑορτὰς τὰς γεγραμμένας ἐν τῷ νόμῳ κυρίου 4 καὶ εἶπεν τῷ λαῷ τοῖς κατοικοῦσιν ἐν Ιερουσαλημ δοῦναι τὴν μερίδα τῶν ἱερέων καὶ τῶν Λευιτῶν ὅπως κατισχύσωσιν ἐν τῇ λειτουργίᾳ οἴκου κυρίου 5 καὶ ὡς προσέταξεν τὸν λόγον ἐπλεόνασαν οἱ υἱοὶ Ισραηλ ἀπαρχὴν σίτου καὶ οἴνου καὶ ἐλαίου καὶ μέλιτος καὶ πᾶν γένημα ἀγροῦ καὶ ἐπιδέκατα πάντα εἰς πλῆθος ἤνεγκαν 6 οἱ υἱοὶ Ισραηλ καὶ Ιουδα καὶ οἱ κατοικοῦντες ἐν ταῖς πόλεσιν Ιουδα καὶ αὐτοὶ ἤνεγκαν ἐπιδέκατα μόσχων καὶ προβάτων καὶ ἐπιδέκατα αἰγῶν καὶ ἡγίασαν τῷ κυρίῳ θεῷ αὐτῶν καὶ εἰσήνεγκαν καὶ ἔθηκαν σωροὺς σωρούς 7 ἐν τῷ μηνὶ τῷ τρίτῳ ἤρξαντο οἱ σωροὶ θεμελιοῦσθαι καὶ ἐν τῷ ἑβδόμῳ μηνὶ συνετελέσθησαν 8 καὶ ἦλθεν Εζεκιας καὶ οἱ ἄρχοντες καὶ εἶδον τοὺς σωροὺς καὶ ηὐλόγησαν τὸν κύριον καὶ τὸν λαὸν αὐτοῦ Ισραηλ 2 And now Ezechias assigned the various companies of priests and Levites their duties; for each his own task, attending to burnt-sacrifice and welcome-offering, thanking and praising the Lord, or watching over his gates, where his tent was pitched on earth. 3 The offering of burnt-sacrifice each morning and evening, on the first day of the month and at other times when the law of Moses required it, should be defrayed at the royal expense; 4 it was for the citizens of Jerusalem to provide for the priests and Levites, so that they might devote all their time to the demands of the Lord’s law. 5 No sooner was this decree made public, than the people began sending in the first-fruits of their corn, wine and oil; tithes, too, of their honey and of all their lands produced; 6 and all who dwelt in Juda’s cities, men of Israel and of Juda alike, gave tithes of cattle and sheep, and of all the offerings they had vowed to the Lord. These tithes they brought themselves, and piled them up all around; 7 from the third month to the sixth, ever greater grew these heaps, 8 and when Ezechias and his nobles came to see them, they blessed the Lord’s name, and blessed the people of Israel. 2 Ezechias autem constituit turmas sacerdotales et Leviticas per divisiones suas, unumquemque in officio proprio, tam sacerdotum videlicet quam Levitarum, ad holocausta et pacifica, ut ministrarent et confiterentur, canerentque in portis castrorum Domini. 3 Pars autem regis erat, ut de propria ejus substantia offerretur holocaustum, mane semper et vespere: sabbatis quoque, et calendis, et solemnitatibus ceteris, sicut scriptum est in lege Moysi. 4 Præcepit etiam populo habitantium Jerusalem ut darent partes sacerdotibus et Levitis, ut possent vacare legi Domini. 5 Quod cum percrebruisset in auribus multitudinis, plurimas obtulere primitias filii Israël frumenti, vini, et olei: mellis quoque, et omnium quæ gignit humus, decimas obtulerunt. 6 Sed et filii Israël et Juda qui habitabant in urbibus Juda, obtulerunt decimas boum et ovium, decimasque sanctorum quæ voverant Domino Deo suo: atque universa portantes, fecerunt acervos plurimos. 7 Mense tertio cœperunt acervorum jacere fundamenta, et mense septimo compleverunt eos. 8 Cumque ingressi fuissent Ezechias et principes ejus, viderunt acervos, et benedixerunt Domino ac populo Israël.
9 καὶ ἐπυνθάνετο Εζεκιας τῶν ἱερέων καὶ τῶν Λευιτῶν ὑπὲρ τῶν σωρῶν 10 καὶ εἶπεν πρὸς αὐτὸν Αζαριας ὁ ἱερεὺς ὁ ἄρχων εἰς οἶκον Σαδωκ καὶ εἶπεν ἐξ οὗ ἦρκται ἡ ἀπαρχὴ φέρεσθαι εἰς οἶκον κυρίου ἐφάγομεν καὶ ἐπίομεν καὶ κατελίπομεν ὅτι κύριος ηὐλόγησεν τὸν λαὸν αὐτοῦ καὶ κατελίπομεν ἔτι τὸ πλῆθος τοῦτο 11 καὶ εἶπεν Εζεκιας ἑτοιμάσαι παστοφόρια εἰς οἶκον κυρίου καὶ ἡτοίμασαν 12 καὶ εἰσήνεγκαν ἐκεῖ τὰς ἀπαρχὰς καὶ τὰ ἐπιδέκατα ἐν πίστει καὶ ἐ{P'} αὐτῶν ἐπιστάτης Χωνενιας ὁ Λευίτης καὶ Σεμεϊ ὁ ἀδελφὸς αὐτοῦ διαδεχόμενος 13 καὶ Ιιηλ καὶ Οζαζιας καὶ Ναεθ καὶ Ασαηλ καὶ Ιεριμωθ καὶ Ιωζαβαθ καὶ Ελιηλ καὶ Σαμαχια καὶ Μααθ καὶ Βαναιας καὶ οἱ υἱοὶ αὐτοῦ καθεσταμένοι διὰ Χωνενιου καὶ Σεμεϊ τοῦ ἀδελφοῦ αὐτοῦ καθὼς προσέταξεν ὁ βασιλεὺς Εζεκιας καὶ Αζαριας ὁ ἡγούμενος οἴκου κυρίου 14 καὶ Κωρη ὁ τοῦ Ιεμνα ὁ Λευίτης ὁ πυλωρὸς κατὰ ἀνατολὰς ἐπὶ τῶν δομάτων δοῦναι τὰς ἀπαρχὰς κυρίῳ καὶ τὰ ἅγια τῶν ἁγίων 15 διὰ χειρὸς Οδομ καὶ Βενιαμιν καὶ Ἰησοῦς καὶ Σεμεϊ καὶ Αμαριας καὶ Σεχονιας διὰ χειρὸς τῶν ἱερέων ἐν πίστει δοῦναι τοῖς ἀδελφοῖς αὐτῶν κατὰ τὰς ἐφημερίας κατὰ τὸν μέγαν καὶ τὸν μικρὸν 16 ἐκτὸς τῆς ἐπιγονῆς τῶν ἀρσενικῶν ἀπὸ τριετοῦς καὶ ἐπάνω παντὶ τῷ εἰσπορευομένῳ εἰς οἶκον κυρίου εἰς λόγον ἡμερῶν εἰς ἡμέραν εἰς λειτουργίαν ἐφημερίαις διατάξεως αὐτῶν 17 οὗτος ὁ καταλοχισμὸς τῶν ἱερέων κα{T'} οἴκους πατριῶν καὶ οἱ Λευῖται ἐν ταῖς ἐφημερίαις αὐτῶν ἀπὸ εἰκοσαετοῦς καὶ ἐπάνω ἐν διατάξει 18 ἐν καταλοχίαις ἐν πάσῃ ἐπιγονῇ υἱῶν αὐτῶν καὶ θυγατέρων αὐτῶν εἰς πᾶν τὸ πλῆθος ὅτι ἐν πίστει ἥγνισαν τὸ ἅγιον 19 τοῖς υἱοῖς Ααρων τοῖς ἱερατεύουσιν καὶ οἱ ἀπὸ τῶν πόλεων αὐτῶν ἐν πάσῃ πόλει καὶ πόλει ἄνδρες οἳ ὠνομάσθησαν ἐν ὀνόματι δοῦναι μερίδα παντὶ ἀρσενικῷ ἐν τοῖς ἱερεῦσιν καὶ παντὶ καταριθμουμένῳ ἐν τοῖς Λευίταις 9 But when Ezechias asked the priests and Levites why the offerings were left to lie in heaps thus, 10 their answer was, they had eaten their fill ever since the first-fruits began to come in, and now, such plenty had the Lord granted to his people, much was left unconsumed; it was this surplus that lay before him. 11 So Ezechias bade them make granaries in the Lord’s house; and in these granaries, once built, 12 they bestowed carefully first-fruits and tithes and vowed gifts alike. They were in charge of the Levite Chonenias, with his brother Semei to aid him; 13 and under Chonenias and Semei were ten others, Jahiel, Azarias, Nahath, Asael, Jerimoth, Jozabad, Elel, Jesmachias, Mahath and Banaias. But king Ezechias and Azarias, that was controller of God’s house, had the direction of all. 14 Gifts that were freely made, and what was set apart for the priests and for holy uses, were in charge of Core, son of Jemna, the Levite that was door-keeper of the eastern gate. 15 Under him were Eden, Benjamin, Jesue, Semeias, Amarias and Sechenias; their office was to distribute portions to their brethren in the various priestly cities, young and old alike, 16 except men (and their sons of three years and over) who were on duty at the time in the Lord’s house, and had portions assigned to them during their turn of office. 17 The priests, family by family, the Levites of twenty years and more, company by company, 18 together with all who belonged to them, wives and sons and daughters, had their food duly allotted to them out of the consecrated gifts. 19 Other officers were appointed here and there to distribute the allowance to boys and men of priestly or Levitical race in the country-side, and in the precincts round each of their cities.[1] 9 Interrogavitque Ezechias sacerdotes et Levitas, cur ita jacerent acervi. 10 Respondit illi Azarias sacerdos primus de stirpe Sadoc, dicens: Ex quo cœperunt offerri primitiæ in domo Domini, comedimus, et saturati sumus, et remanserunt plurima, eo quod benedixerit Dominus populo suo: reliquarum autem copia est ista, quam cernis. 11 Præcepit igitur Ezechias ut præpararent horrea in domo Domini. Quod cum fecissent, 12 intulerunt tam primitias quam decimas, et quæcumque voverant, fideliter. Fuit autem præfectus eorum Chonenias Levita, et Semei frater ejus secundus, 13 post quem Jahiel, et Azarias, et Nahath, et Asaël, et Jerimoth, Jozabad quoque, et Eliel, et Jesmachias, et Mahath, et Banaias, præpositi sub manibus Choneniæ et Semei fratris ejus, ex imperio Ezechiæ regis et Azariæ pontificis domus Dei, ad quos omnia pertinebant. 14 Core vero filius Jemna Levites, et janitor orientalis portæ, præpositus erat iis quæ sponte offerebantur Domino, primitiisque et consecratis in Sancta sanctorum. 15 Et sub cura ejus Eden, et Benjamin, Jesue, et Semeias, Amarias quoque, et Sechenias in civitatibus sacerdotum, ut fideliter distribuerent fratribus suis partes, minoribus atque majoribus: 16 exceptis maribus ab annis tribus et supra, cunctis qui ingrediebantur templum Domini, et quidquid per singulos dies conducebat in ministerio, atque observationibus juxta divisiones suas, 17 sacerdotibus per familias, et Levitis a vigesimo anno et supra, per ordines et turmas suas, 18 universæque multitudini tam uxoribus quam liberis eorum utriusque sexus, fideliter cibi de his quæ sanctificata fuerant, præbebantur. 19 Sed et filiorum Aaron per agros, et suburbana urbium singularum, dispositi erant viri, qui partes distribuerent universo sexui masculino de sacerdotibus et Levitis.
20 καὶ ἐποίησεν οὕτως Εζεκιας ἐν παντὶ Ιουδα καὶ ἐποίησεν τὸ καλὸν καὶ τὸ εὐθὲς ἐναντίον τοῦ κυρίου θεοῦ αὐτοῦ 21 καὶ ἐν παντὶ ἔργῳ ἐν ᾧ ἤρξατο ἐν ἐργασίᾳ ἐν οἴκῳ κυρίου καὶ ἐν τῷ νόμῳ καὶ ἐν τοῖς προστάγμασιν ἐξεζήτησεν τὸν θεὸν αὐτοῦ ἐξ ὅλης ψυχῆς αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐποίησεν καὶ εὐοδώθη 20 Such were the provisions Ezechias made for his whole realm, a king ever true and loyal to the will of the Lord his God; 21 such loving care he bestowed on the Lord’s house, its laws and observances, resolved to make God his whole heart’s quest; and so doing he reigned prosperously. 20 Fecit ergo Ezechias universa quæ diximus in omni Juda: operatusque est bonum et rectum, et verum coram Domino Deo suo, 21 in universa cultura ministerii domus Domini, juxta legem et cæremonias, volens requirere Deum suum in toto corde suo: fecitque, et prosperatus est.
