Joash Repairs the Temple

1Ὢν ἑπτὰ ἐτῶν Ἰωὰς ἐν τῷ βασιλεῦσαι αὐτόν, καὶ τεσσεράκοντα ἔτη ἐβασίλευσεν ἐν Ἰερουσαλήμ, καὶ ὄνομα τῇ μητρὶ αὐτοῦ Ἀβιὰ ἐκ Βηρσάβεε. 2καὶ ἐποίησεν Ἰωὰς τὸ εὐθὲς ἐνώπιον Κυρίου πάσας τὰς ἡμέρας Ἰωδᾶε τοῦ ἱερέως. 3καὶ ἔλαβεν ἑαυτῷ Ἰωδᾶε γυναῖκας δύο, καὶ ἐγέννησεν υἱοὺς καὶ θυγατέρας.

Faithless Priests

4καὶ ἐγένετο μετὰ ταῦτα, καὶ ἐγένετο ἐπὶ καρδίαν Ἰωὰς ἐπισκευάσαι τὸν οἶκον Κυρίου. 5καὶ συνήγαγεν τοὺς ἱερεῖς καὶ τοὺς Λευείτας καὶ εἶπεν αὐτοῖς Ἐξέλθατε εἰς τὰς πόλεις Ἰούδα καὶ συναγάγετε ἀπὸ παντὸς Ἰσραὴλ ἀργύριον κατισχῦσαι τὸν οἶκον Κυρίου ἐνιαυτὸν κατ᾽ ἐνιαυτόν, καὶ σπεύσατε λαλῆσαι· καὶ οὐκ ἐπίστευσαν οἱ Λευεῖται. 6καὶ ἐκάλεσεν ὁ βασιλεὺς Ἰωὰς τὸν Ἰωδᾶε τὸν ἄρχοντα καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῷ Διὰ τί οὐκ ἐπεσκέψω περὶ τῶν Λευειτῶν τοῦ εἰσενέγκαι ἀπὸ Ἰούδα καὶ Ἰερουσαλὴμ τὸ κεκριμένον ὑπὸ Μωυσῆ ἀνθρώπου θεοῦ, ὅτι ἐξεκλησίασεν τὸν Ἰσραὴλ εἰς τὴν σκηνὴν τοῦ μαρτυρίου; 7ὅτι Γοθολία ἦν ἡ ἄνομος, καὶ οἱ υἱοὶ αὐτῆς κατέσπασαν τὸν οἶκον τοῦ θεοῦ, καὶ γὰρ τὰ ἅγια οἴκου Κυρίου ἐποίησαν ταῖς Βααλείμ.

8καὶ εἶπεν ὁ βασιλεύς Γενηθήτω γλωσσόκομον καὶ τεθήτω ἐν πύλῃ οἴκου Κυρίου ἔξω. 9καὶ κηρυξάτωσαν ἐν Ἰούδᾳ καὶ ἐν Ἰερουσαλὴμ εἰσενέγκαι Κυρίῳ, καθὼς εἶπεν Μωυσῆς παῖς τοῦ θεοῦ ἐπὶ τὸν Ἰσραὴλ ἐν τῇ ἐρήμῳ. 10καὶ ἔδωκαν πάντες ἄρχοντες καὶ πᾶς ὁ λαός, καὶ εἰσέφερον καὶ ἐνέβαλλον εἰς τὸ γλωσσόκομον ἕως οὗ ἐπληρώθη. 11καὶ ἐγένετο ὡς εἰσέφερον τὸ γλωσσόκομον πρὸς τοὺς προστάτας τοῦ βασιλέως διὰ χειρὸς τῶν Λευειτῶν, καὶ ὡς εἶδον ὅτι ἐπλεόνασεν τὸ ἀργύριον, καὶ ἦλθεν ὁ γραμματεὺς τοῦ βασιλέως καὶ ὁ προστάτης τοῦ ἱερέως τοῦ μεγάλου καὶ ἐξεκένωσεν τὸ γλωσσόκομον, καὶ κατέστησαν εἰς τὸν τόπον αὐτοῦ· οὕτως ἐποίουν ἡμέραν ἐξ ἡμέρας, καὶ συνήγαγον ἀργύριον πολύ. 12καὶ ἔδωκεν αὐτὸ ὁ βασιλεὺς καὶ Ἰωδᾶε ὁ ἱερεὺς τοῖς ποιοῦσιν τὰ ἔργα εἰς τὴν ἐργασίαν οἴκου Κυρίου· καὶ ἐμισθοῦντο λατόμους καὶ τέκτονας ἐπισκευάσαι τὸν οἶκον Κυρίου, καὶ χαλκεῖς σιδήρου καὶ χαλκοῦ ἐπισκευάσαι τὸν οἶκον Κυρίου. 13καὶ ἐποίουν οἱ ποιοῦντες τὰ ἔργα, καὶ ἀνέβη μῆκος τῶν ἔργων ἐν χερσὶν αὐτῶν, καὶ ἀνέστησαν τὸν οἶκον Κυρίου ἐπὶ τὴν στάσιν αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐνίσχυσαν. 14καὶ ὡς συνετέλεσαν, ἤνεγκαν πρὸς τὸν βασιλέα καὶ πρὸς Ἰωδᾶε τὸ κατάλοιπον τοῦ ἀργυρίου, καὶ ἐποίησαν σκεύη εἰς οἶκον Κυρίου, σκεύη λειτουργικὰ ὁλοκαυτωμάτων καὶ θυίσκας χρυσᾶς καὶ ἀργυρᾶς, καὶ ἀνήνεγκαν ὁλοκαυτώσεις ἐν οἴκῳ Κυρίου διὰ παντὸς πὰσας τὰς ἡμέρας Ἰωδᾶε.

Jehoiada's Death and Burial

15Καὶ ἐγήρασεν Ἰωδᾶε πλήρης ἡμερῶν, καὶ ἐτελεύτησεν ὢν ἑκατὸν καὶ τριάκοντα ἐτῶν ἐν τῷ τελευτᾷν αὐτόν. 16καὶ ἔθαψαν αὐτὸν ἐν πόλει Δαυεὶδ μετὰ τῶν βασιλέων, ὅτι ἐποίησεν ἀγαθωσύνην μετὰ Ἰσραὴλ καὶ μετὰ τοῦ θεοῦ καὶ τοῦ οἴκου αὐτοῦ.

The Wickedness of Joash

17καὶ ἐγένετο μετὰ τὴν τελευτὴν Ἰωδᾶε εἰσῆλθον οἱ ἄρχοντες Ἰούδα καὶ προσεκύνησαν τὸν βασιλέα· τότε ἐπήκουσεν αὐτοῖς ὁ βασιλεύς. 18καὶ ἐνκατέλιπον τὸν Κύριον θεὸν τῶν πατέρων αὐτῶν, καὶ ἐδούλευον ταῖς Ἀστάρταις καὶ τοῖς εἰδώλοις· καὶ ἐγένετο ὀργὴ ἐπὶ Ἰουδὰ καὶ Ἰερουσαλὴμ ἐν τῇ ἡμέρᾳ ταύτῃ. 19καὶ ἀπέστειλεν πρὸς αὐτοὺς προφήτας, ἐπιστρέψαι πρὸς Κύριον, καὶ οὐκ ἤκουσαν· καὶ διεμαρτύραντο αὐτοῖς, καὶ οὐχ ὑπήκουσαν.

20καὶ πνεῦμα θεοῦ ἐνέδυσεν τὸν Ἀζαρίαν τὸν τοῦ Ἰωδᾶε τὸν ἱερέα, καὶ ἀνέστη ἐπάνω τοῦ λαοῦ καὶ εἶπεν Τάδε λέγει Κύριος Τί παραπορεύεσθε τὰς ἐντολὰς Κυρίου; καὶ οὐκ εὐοδωθήσεσθε· ὅτι ἐνκατελίπετε τὸν κύριον, καὶ ἐνκαταλείψει ὑμᾶς. 21καὶ ἐπέθεντο αὐτῷ, καὶ ἐλιθοβόλησαν αὐτὸν δι᾽ ἐντολῆς Ἰωὰς τοῦ βασιλέως ἐν αὐλῇ οἴκου Κυρίου. 22καὶ οὐκ ἐμνήσθη Ἰωὰς τοῦ ἐλέους οὗ ἐποίησεν μετ᾽ αὐτοῦ Ἰεδᾶε ὁ πατὴρ αὐτοῦ, καὶ ἐθανάτωσεν τὸν υἱὸν αὐτοῦ. καὶ ὡς ἀπέθνησκεν, εἶπεν Ἴδοι Κύριος καὶ κρινάτω.

23καὶ ἐγένετο μετὰ τὴν συντέλειαν τοῦ ἐνιαυτοῦ ἀνέβη ἐπ᾽ αὐτὸν δύναμις Συρίας, καὶ ἦλθεν ἐπὶ Ἰουδὰ καὶ ἐπὶ Ἰερουσαλήμ· καὶ κατέφθειραν πὰντας τοὺς ἄρχοντας τοῦ λαοῦ ἐν τῷ λαῷ, καὶ πάντα τὰ σκῦλα αὐτῶν ἀπέστειλαν τῷ βασιλεῖ Δαμασκοῦ. 24ὅτι ἐν ὀλίγοις ἀνδράσιν παρεγένετο δύναμις Συρίας, καὶ ὁ θεὸς παρέδωκεν εἰς τὰς χεῖρας αὐτῶν δύναμιν πολλὴν σφόδρα, ὅτι ἐνκατέλιπον Κύριον θεὸν τῶν πατέρων αὐτῶν· καὶ μετὰ Ἰωὰς ἐποίησεν κρίματα.

25καὶ μετὰ τὸ ἀπελθεῖν αὐτοὺς ἀπ᾽ αὐτοῦ ἐν τῷ ἐνκαταλιπεῖν αὐτὸν ἐν μαλακίαις μεγάλαις, καὶ ἐπέθεντο αὐτῷ οἱ παῖδες αὐτοῦ ἐν αἵμασιν υἱοῦ Ἰωδᾶε τοῦ ἱερέως, καὶ ἐθανάτωσαν αὐτὸν ἐπὶ τῆς κλίνης αὐτοῦ, καὶ ἀπέθανεν· καὶ ἔθαψαν αὐτὸν ἐν πόλει Δαυείδ, καὶ οὐκ ἔθαψαν αὐτὸν ἐν τῷ τάφῳ τῶν βασιλέων. 26καὶ οἱ ἐπιθέμενοι ἐπ᾽ αὐτὸν Ζαβὲλ ὁ τοῦ Σαμὰ ὁ Ἀμμανείτης καὶ Ζωζαβὲδ ὁ τοῦ Σομαιὼθ ὁ Μωαβείτης 27καὶ οἱ υἱοὶ αὐτοῦ πάντες, καὶ προσῆλθον αὐτῷ οἱ πέντε. καὶ τὰ λοιπὰ ἰδοὺ γεγραμμένα ἐπὶ τὴν γραφὴν τῶν βασιλέων· καὶ ἐβασίλευσεν Ἀμασίας υἱὸς αὐτοῦ ἀντ᾽ αὐτοῦ.
