1 ὢν δέκα δύο ἐτῶν Μανασσης ἐν τῷ βασιλεῦσαι αὐτὸν καὶ πεντήκοντα πέντε ἔτη ἐβασίλευσεν ἐν Ιερουσαλημ 2 καὶ ἐποίησεν τὸ πονηρὸν ἐναντίον κυρίου ἀπὸ πάντων τῶν βδελυγμάτων τῶν ἐθνῶν οὓς ἐξωλέθρευσεν κύριος ἀπὸ προσώπου τῶν υἱῶν Ισραηλ 3 καὶ ἐπέστρεψεν καὶ ᾠκοδόμησεν τὰ ὑψηλά ἃ κατέσπασεν Εζεκιας ὁ πατὴρ αὐτοῦ καὶ ἔστησεν στήλας ταῖς Βααλιμ καὶ ἐποίησεν ἄλση καὶ προσεκύνησεν πάσῃ τῇ στρατιᾷ τοῦ οὐρανοῦ καὶ ἐδούλευσεν αὐτοῖς 4 καὶ ᾠκοδόμησεν θυσιαστήρια ἐν οἴκῳ κυρίου οὗ εἶπεν κύριος ἐν Ιερουσαλημ ἔσται τὸ ὄνομά μου εἰς τὸν αἰῶνα 5 καὶ ᾠκοδόμησεν θυσιαστήρια πάσῃ τῇ στρατιᾷ τοῦ οὐρανοῦ ἐν ταῖς δυσὶν αὐλαῖς οἴκου κυρίου 6 καὶ αὐτὸς διήγαγεν τὰ τέκνα αὐτοῦ ἐν πυρὶ ἐν Γα{I-}βανα{I-}εννομ καὶ ἐκληδονίζετο καὶ οἰωνίζετο καὶ ἐφαρμακεύετο καὶ ἐποίησεν ἐγγαστριμύθους καὶ ἐπαοιδούς ἐπλήθυνεν τοῦ ποιῆσαι τὸ πονηρὸν ἐναντίον κυρίου τοῦ παροργίσαι αὐτόν 7 καὶ ἔθηκεν τὸ γλυπτὸν καὶ τὸ χωνευτόν εἰκόνα ἣν ἐποίησεν ἐν οἴκῳ θεοῦ οὗ εἶπεν ὁ θεὸς πρὸς Δαυιδ καὶ πρὸς Σαλωμων υἱὸν αὐτοῦ ἐν τῷ οἴκῳ τούτῳ καὶ Ιερουσαλημ ἣν ἐξελεξάμην ἐκ πασῶν φυλῶν Ισραηλ θήσω τὸ ὄνομά μου εἰς τὸν αἰῶνα 8 καὶ οὐ προσθήσω σαλεῦσαι τὸν πόδα Ισραηλ ἀπὸ τῆς γῆς ἧς ἔδωκα τοῖς πατράσιν αὐτῶν πλὴν ἐὰν φυλάσσωνται τοῦ ποιῆσαι πάντα ἃ ἐνετειλάμην αὐτοῖς κατὰ πάντα τὸν νόμον καὶ τὰ προστάγματα καὶ τὰ κρίματα ἐν χειρὶ Μωυσῆ 9 καὶ ἐπλάνησεν Μανασσης τὸν Ιουδαν καὶ τοὺς κατοικοῦντας ἐν Ιερουσαλημ τοῦ ποιῆσαι τὸ πονηρὸν ὑπὲρ πάντα τὰ ἔθνη ἃ ἐξῆρεν κύριος ἀπὸ προσώπου υἱῶν Ισραηλ 10 καὶ ἐλάλησεν κύριος ἐπὶ Μανασση καὶ ἐπὶ τὸν λαὸν αὐτοῦ καὶ οὐκ ἐπήκουσαν 11 καὶ ἤγαγεν κύριος ἐ{P'} αὐτοὺς τοὺς ἄρχοντας τῆς δυνάμεως βασιλέως Ασσουρ καὶ κατέλαβον τὸν Μανασση ἐν δεσμοῖς καὶ ἔδησαν αὐτὸν ἐν πέδαις καὶ ἤγαγον εἰς Βαβυλῶνα 12 καὶ ὡς ἐθλίβη ἐζήτησεν τὸ πρόσωπον κυρίου τοῦ θεοῦ αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐταπεινώθη σφόδρα ἀπὸ προσώπου θεοῦ τῶν πατέρων αὐτοῦ 13 καὶ προσηύξατο πρὸς αὐτόν καὶ ἐπήκουσεν αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐπήκουσεν τῆς βοῆς αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐπέστρεψεν αὐτὸν εἰς Ιερουσαλημ ἐπὶ τὴν βασιλείαν αὐτοῦ καὶ ἔγνω Μανασσης ὅτι κύριος αὐτός ἐστιν ὁ θεός 1 This Manasses was twelve years old when he came to the throne, and his reign at Jerusalem lasted fifty-five years. 2 And he defied the Lord’s will, by courting the false gods of those nations which the Lord destroyed to make room for the sons of Israel. 3 He restored once again the hill-shrines which his father Ezechias had overthrown; he raised altars to the gods of the country-side, and set up sacred trees, and gave to all the host of heaven worship and observance. 4 Nay, he must set up these altars of his in the temple itself, where the Lord fulfilled his promise that Jerusalem should be the shrine of his name for ever; 5 altars there must be for all the host of heaven in the two temple courts. 6 He consecrated his own sons by passing them through the fire in the ravine of Benennom;[1] there was watching for dreams and taking of auguries, there was practising of magical arts; he surrounded himself with diviners and soothsayers, until this defiance of his provoked the Lord’s anger. 7 He carved an image, too, and cast a sheath for it, and set this up in the Lord’s house. And this was at Jerusalem, the Lord’s choice among all the cities of Israel; this was in the temple that was to be the everlasting shrine of his name; so he had promised David and Solomon, 8 Nevermore will I let the sons of Israel be dislodged from the land I gave their fathers, if only they will be true to law and observance and decree Moses enjoined on them in my name. 9 The very nations which the Lord destroyed to make room for the sons of Israel were guilty of less wrong than Juda and Jerusalem did, when they were led astray by the example of Manasses. 10 Warnings enough the Lord sent to him and to his people, but they went unheeded; 11 and the next emissaries he sent to them were the captains of the Assyrian army, who made Manasses their prisoner, and carried him away, loaded with chains and fetters, to Babylon. 12 It was to his own God, the Lord, that he turned in this time of distress; before him, the God of his fathers, he made humble amends, 13 and sought his favour with earnest prayer. That prayer the Lord answered, and restored him to his throne at Jerusalem. Such good proof had Manasses that the Lord only was God. 1 Duodecim annorum erat Manasses cum regnare cœpisset, et quinquaginta quinque annis regnavit in Jerusalem. 2 Fecit autem malum coram Domino, juxta abominationes gentium quas subvertit Dominus coram filiis Israël: 3 et conversus instauravit excelsa quæ demolitus fuerat Ezechias pater ejus: construxitque aras Baalim, et fecit lucos, et adoravit omnem militiam cæli, et coluit eam. 4 Ædificavit quoque altaria in domo Domini, de qua dixerat Dominus: In Jerusalem erit nomen meum in æternum. 5 Ædificavit autem ea cuncto exercitui cæli in duobus atriis domus Domini. 6 Transireque fecit filios suos per ignem in valle Benennom: observabat somnia, sectabatur auguria, maleficis artibus inserviebat, habebat secum magos et incantatores, multaque mala operatus est coram Domino ut irritaret eum. 7 Sculptile quoque et conflatile signum posuit in domo Dei, de qua locutus est Deus ad David, et ad Salomonem filium ejus, dicens: In domo hac, et in Jerusalem quam elegi de cunctis tribubus Israël, ponam nomen meum in sempiternum. 8 Et moveri non faciam pedem Israël de terra quam tradidi patribus eorum: ita dumtaxat si custodierint facere quæ præcepi eis, cunctamque legem, et cæremonias atque judicia, per manum Moysi. 9 Igitur Manasses seduxit Judam, et habitatores Jerusalem, ut facerent malum super omnes gentes quas subverterat Dominus a facie filiorum Israël. 10 Locutusque est Dominus ad eum, et ad populum illius, et attendere noluerunt. 11 Idcirco superinduxit eis principes exercitus regis Assyriorum: ceperuntque Manassen, et vinctum catenis atque compedibus duxerunt in Babylonem. 12 Qui postquam coangustatus est, oravit Dominum Deum suum: et egit pœnitentiam valde coram Deo patrum suorum. 13 Deprecatusque est eum, et obsecravit intente: et exaudivit orationem ejus, reduxitque eum Jerusalem in regnum suum, et cognovit Manasses quod Dominus ipse esset Deus.
14 καὶ μετὰ ταῦτα ᾠκοδόμησεν τεῖχος ἔξω τῆς πόλεως Δαυιδ ἀπὸ λιβὸς κατὰ Γιων ἐν τῷ χειμάρρῳ καὶ ἐκπορευομένων τὴν πύλην τὴν κυκλόθεν καὶ εἰς τὸ Οφλα καὶ ὕψωσεν σφόδρα καὶ κατέστησεν ἄρχοντας τῆς δυνάμεως ἐν πάσαις ταῖς πόλεσιν ταῖς τειχήρεσιν ἐν Ιουδα 15 καὶ περιεῖλεν τοὺς θεοὺς τοὺς ἀλλοτρίους καὶ τὸ γλυπτὸν ἐξ οἴκου κυρίου καὶ πάντα τὰ θυσιαστήρια ἃ ᾠκοδόμησεν ἐν ὄρει οἴκου κυρίου καὶ ἐν Ιερουσαλημ καὶ ἔξω τῆς πόλεως 16 καὶ κατώρθωσεν τὸ θυσιαστήριον κυρίου καὶ ἐθυσίασεν ἐ{P'} αὐτὸ θυσίαν σωτηρίου καὶ αἰνέσεως καὶ εἶπεν τῷ Ιουδα τοῦ δουλεύειν κυρίῳ θεῷ Ισραηλ 17 πλὴν ὁ λαὸς ἔτι ἐπὶ τῶν ὑψηλῶν πλὴν κύριος ὁ θεὸς αὐτῶν 18 καὶ τὰ λοιπὰ τῶν λόγων Μανασση καὶ ἡ προσευχὴ αὐτοῦ ἡ πρὸς τὸν θεὸν καὶ λόγοι τῶν ὁρώντων λαλούντων πρὸς αὐτὸν ἐ{P'} ὀνόματι κυρίου θεοῦ Ισραηλ ἰδοὺ ἐπὶ λόγων 19 προσευχῆς αὐτοῦ καὶ ὡς ἐπήκουσεν αὐτοῦ καὶ πᾶσαι αἱ ἁμαρτίαι αὐτοῦ καὶ αἱ ἀποστάσεις αὐτοῦ καὶ οἱ τόποι ἐ{F'} οἷς ᾠκοδόμησεν τὰ ὑψηλὰ καὶ ἔστησεν ἐκεῖ ἄλση καὶ γλυπτὰ πρὸ τοῦ ἐπιστρέψαι ἰδοὺ γέγραπται ἐπὶ τῶν λόγων τῶν ὁρώντων 20 καὶ ἐκοιμήθη Μανασσης μετὰ τῶν πατέρων αὐτοῦ καὶ ἔθαψαν αὐτὸν ἐν παραδείσῳ οἴκου αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐβασίλευσεν ἀν{T'} αὐτοῦ Αμων υἱὸς αὐτοῦ 14 It was after this that he built the wall beyond David’s Keep, out in the ravine west of Gihon, all the way round from the Fishmongers’ Gate to Ophel, raising it to a great height; set captains, too, on garrison duty in all the fortified towns of Juda. 15 Meanwhile, there was an end of the false gods, of the idol that stood in the Lord’s house, of the altars he had set up on the temple hill and all over Jerusalem; he cast them away beyond the city walls. 16 The Lord’s altar must be restored; to this he brought his victims, his welcome-offerings and thank-offerings, and bade Juda serve the Lord, the God of Israel. 17 None the less, men still sacrificed at the hill-shrines, but only to the Lord their God. 18 What else Manasses did, the prayer he offered to his God, and the warnings that were given to him by prophets in the name of the Lord God of Israel, may be found set down in the Record of the Israelite kings.[2] 19 The Chronicle of Hozai, too, tells of his prayer and how his prayer was answered; of his defiance, and of all the places where he set up hill-shrine and forest shrine and image, before the time of his repentance. 20 So Manasses was laid to rest with his fathers, with his own house for his burying-place, and the throne passed to his son Amon. 14 Post hæc ædificavit murum extra civitatem David ad occidentem Gihon in convalle, ab introitu portæ piscium per circuitum usque ad Ophel, et exaltavit illum vehementer: constituitque principes exercitus in cunctis civitatibus Juda munitis: 15 et abstulit deos alienos, et simulacrum de domo Domini: aras quoque, quas fecerat in monte domus Domini et in Jerusalem: et projecit omnia extra urbem. 16 Porro instauravit altare Domini, et immolavit super illud victimas, et pacifica, et laudem: præcepitque Judæ ut serviret Domino Deo Israël. 17 Attamen adhuc populus immolabat in excelsis Domino Deo suo. 18 Reliqua autem gestorum Manasse, et obsecratio ejus ad Deum suum, verba quoque videntium qui loquebantur ad eum in nomine Domini Dei Israël, continentur in sermonibus regum Israël. 19 Oratio quoque ejus et exauditio, et cuncta peccata atque contemptus, loca etiam in quibus ædificavit excelsa, et fecit lucos et statuas antequam ageret pœnitentiam, scripta sunt in sermonibus Hozai. 20 Dormivit ergo Manasses cum patribus suis, et sepelierunt eum in domo sua: regnavitque pro eo filius ejus Amon.
21 ὢν εἴκοσι καὶ δύο ἐτῶν Αμων ἐν τῷ βασιλεύειν αὐτὸν καὶ δύο ἔτη ἐβασίλευσεν ἐν Ιερουσαλημ 22 καὶ ἐποίησεν τὸ πονηρὸν ἐνώπιον κυρίου ὡς ἐποίησεν Μανασσης ὁ πατὴρ αὐτοῦ καὶ πᾶσιν τοῖς εἰδώλοις οἷς ἐποίησεν Μανασσης ὁ πατὴρ αὐτοῦ ἔθυεν Αμων καὶ ἐδούλευσεν αὐτοῖς 23 καὶ οὐκ ἐταπεινώθη ἐναντίον κυρίου ὡς ἐταπεινώθη Μανασσης ὁ πατὴρ αὐτοῦ ὅτι υἱὸς αὐτοῦ Αμων ἐπλήθυνεν πλημμέλειαν 24 καὶ ἐπέθεντο αὐτῷ οἱ παῖδες αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐπάταξαν αὐτὸν ἐν οἴκῳ αὐτοῦ 25 καὶ ἐπάταξεν ὁ λαὸς τῆς γῆς τοὺς ἐπιθεμένους ἐπὶ τὸν βασιλέα Αμων καὶ ἐβασίλευσεν ὁ λαὸς τῆς γῆς τὸν Ιωσιαν υἱὸν αὐτοῦ ἀν{T'} αὐτοῦ 21 This Amon was twenty-two years old when he came to the throne, and his reign at Jerusalem lasted two years; 22 he defied the Lord like his father Manasses. No idol Manasses had made but Amon must sacrifice and pay worship to it; 23 nor did he ever imitate his father by making humble amends, rather he outwent him in guilt. 24 He was slain in his own house, through a conspiracy among his own servants; 25 but the common folk put them to death, and gave the crown to the son of Amon, that was called Josias. 21 Viginti duorum annorum erat Amon cum regnare cœpisset, et duobus annis regnavit in Jerusalem. 22 Fecitque malum in conspectu Domini, sicut fecerat Manasses pater ejus: et cunctis idolis quæ Manasses fuerat fabricatus, immolavit atque servivit. 23 Et non est reveritus faciem Domini, sicut reveritus est Manasses pater ejus, et multo majora deliquit. 24 Cumque conjurassent adversus eum servi sui, interfecerunt eum in domo sua. 25 Porro reliqua populi multitudo, cæsis iis qui Amon percusserant, constituit regem Josiam filium ejus pro eo.
