Foreigners Excluded

1Ἐν τῇ ἡμέρᾳ ἐκείνῃ ἀνεγνώσθη ἐν βιβλίῳ Μωυσῆ ἐν ὠσὶν τοῦ λαοῦ· καὶ εὑρέθη γεγραμμένον ἐν αὐτῷ ὅπως μὴ εἰσέλθωσιν Ἀμμανεῖται καὶ Μωαβεῖται ἐν ἐκκλησίᾳ θεοῦ ἕως αἰῶνος, 2ὅτι οὐ συνήντησαν τοῖς υἱοῖς Ἰσραὴλ ἐν ἄρτῳ καὶ ἐν ὕδατι, καὶ ἐμισθώσαντο ἐπ᾽ αὐτὸν τὸν Βαλαὰμ καταράσασθαι, καὶ ἔστρεψεν ὁ θεὸς ἡμῶν τὴν κατάραν εἰς εὐλογίαν. 3καὶ ἐγένετο ὡς ἤκουσαν τὸν νόμον, καὶ ἐχωρίσθησαν πᾶς ἐπίμικτος ἐν Ἰσραήλ.

The Temple Cleansed

4Καὶ πρὸ τούτου Ἐλιασεὶβ ὁ ἱερεὺς οἰκῶν ἐν γαζοφυλακίῳ οἴκου θεοῦ ἡμῶν ἐγγίων Τωβιά. 5καὶ ἐποίησεν ἑαυτῷ γαζοφυλάκιον μέγα, καὶ ἐκεῖ ἦσαν τὸ πρότερον διδόντες τὴν μαναὰμ καὶ τὸν λίβανον καὶ τὰ σκεύη, καὶ τὴν δεκάτην τοῦ σίτου καὶ τοῦ οἴνου καὶ τοῦ ἐλαίου, ἐντολὴν τῶν Λευειτῶν καὶ τῶν ᾀδόντων καὶ τῶν πυλωρῶν, καὶ ἀπαρχαὶ τῶν ἱερέων. 6καὶ ἐν παντὶ τούτῳ οὐκ ἤμην ἐν Ἰερουσαλήμ, ὅτι ἐν ἔτει τριακοστῷ καὶ δευτέρῳ τοῦ Ἀρσασαθὰ βασιλέως Βαβυλῶνος ἦλθον πρὸς τὸν βασιλέα, καὶ μετὰ τέλος ἡμερῶν ᾐτησάμην τὸν βασιλέα, 7καὶ ἦλθον εἰς Ἰερουσαλήμ· καὶ συνῆκα ἐν πονηρίᾳ, ποιῆσαι αὐτῷ γαζοφυλάκιον ἐν αὐλῇ οἴκου τοῦ θεοῦ. 8καὶ πονηρόν μοι ἐφάνη σφόδρα, καὶ ἔρριψα πάντα τὰ σκεύη οἴκου Τωβιὰ ἀπὸ τοῦ γαζοφυλακίου· 9καὶ εἶπα, καὶ ἐκαθάρισα τὰ γαζοφυλάκια, καὶ ἐπέστρεψα ἐκεῖ σκεύη οἴκου τοῦ θεοῦ, τὴν μαννὰ καὶ τὸν λίβανον.

Tithes Restored

10Καὶ ἔγνων ὅτι μερίδες τῶν Λευειτῶν οὐκ ἐδόθησαν, καὶ ἐφύγοσαν ἀνὴρ εἰς ἀγρὸν αὐτοῦ οἱ Λευεῖται καὶ οἱ ᾄδοντες ποιοῦντες τὸ ἔργον. 11καὶ ἐμαχεσάμην καὶ εἶπα Διὰ τί ἐγκατελείφθη ὁ οἶκος τοῦ θεοῦ; καὶ συνήγαγον αὐτούς, καὶ ἔστησαν αὐτοὺς ἐπὶ τῇ στάσει αὐτῶν. 12καὶ πᾶς Ἰούδας ἤνεγκαν δεκάτην τοῦ πυροῦ καὶ τοῦ οἴνου καὶ τοῦ ἐλαίου εἰς τοὺς θησαυρούς, 13ἐπὶ χεῖρα Σελεμιὰ τοῦ ἱερέως καὶ Σαδδοὺκ τοῦ γραμματέως καὶ Φαδαιὰ ἀπὸ τῶν Λευειτῶν· καὶ ἐπὶ χεῖρα αὐτῶν Ἁνὰν υἱὸς Ζακχοὺρ υἱὸς Ναθανιά, ὅτι πιστοὶ ἐλογίσθησαν ἐπ᾽ αὐτοὺς μερίζειν τοῖς ἀδελφοῖς αὐτῶν. 14μνήσθητί μου ὁ θεὸς ἐν αὐτῇ, καὶ μὴ ἐξαλειφθήτω ἔλεός μου ὃ ἐποίησα ἐν οἴκῳ Κυρίου τοῦ θεοῦ.

The Sabbath Restored

15Ἐν ταῖς ἡμέραις ἐκείναις εἶδον ἐν Ἰούδᾳ πατοῦντας ληνοὺς ἐν τῷ σαββάτῳ· καὶ φέροντες δράγματα καὶ ἐπιγεμίζοντες ἐπὶ τοὺς ὄνους καὶ οἶνον καὶ σταφυλὴν καὶ σῦκα καὶ πᾶν βάσταγμα, καὶ φέροντες εἰς Ἰερουσαλὴμ ἐν ἡμέρᾳ τοῦ σαββάτου· καὶ ἐπεμαρτυράμην ἐν ἡμέρᾳ πράσεως αὐτῶν. 16καὶ ἐκάθισαν ἐν αὐτῇ φέροντες ἰχθὺν καὶ πᾶσαν πρᾶσιν πωλοῦντες ἐν τῷ σαββάτῳ τοῖς υἱοῖς Ἰούδα καὶ ἐν Ἰερουσαλήμ. 17καὶ ἐμαχεσάμην τοῖς υἱοῖς Ἰούδα τοῖς ἐλευθέροις καὶ εἶπα αὐτοῖς Τίς ὁ λόγος ὁ πονηρὸς οὗτος ὃν ὑμεῖς ποιεῖτε, καὶ βεβηλοῦτε τὴν ἡμέραν τοῦ σαββάτου; 18οὐχὶ οὕτως ἐποίησαν οἱ πατέρες ὑμῶν, καὶ ἤνεγκεν ἐπ᾽ αὐτοὺς ὁ θεὸς ἡμῶν καὶ ἐφ᾽ ἡμᾶς πάντα τὰ κακὰ ταῦτα καὶ ἐπὶ τὴν πόλιν ταύτην; καὶ ὑμεῖς προστίθετε ὀργὴν ἐπὶ Ἰσραήλ, βεβηλῶσαι τὸ σάββατον;

19καὶ ἐγένετο ἡνίκα κατέστησαν πύλαι Ἰερουσαλὴμ πρὸ τοῦ σαββάτου, καὶ ἔκλεισα τὰς πύλας, καὶ εἶπα ὥστε μὴ ἀνοιγῆναι αὐτὰς ὀπίσω τοῦ σαββάτου· καὶ ἔστησα ἐπὶ τὰς πύλας, ὥστε μὴ αἴρειν βαστάγματα ἐν ἡμέρᾳ τοῦ σαββάτου. 20καὶ ηὐλίσθησαν πάντες καὶ ἐποίησαν πρᾶσιν ἔξω Ἰερουσαλὴμ ἅπαξ καὶ δίς. 21καὶ ἐπεμαρτυράμην ἐν αὐτοῖς καὶ εἶπα πρὸς αὐτούς Διὰ τί ὑμεῖς αὐλίζεσθε ἀπέναντι τοῦ τείχους; ἐὰν δευτερώσητε, ἐκτενῶ χεῖρά μου ἐν ὑμῖν. ἀπὸ τοῦ καιροῦ ἐκείνου οὐκ ἤλθοσαν ἐν σαββάτῳ. 22καὶ εἶπα τοῖς Λευείταις, οἳ ἦσαν καθαριζόμενοι καὶ ἐρχόμενοι φυλάσσοντες τὰς πύλας, ἁγιάζοντες τὴν ἡμέραν τοῦ σαββάτου. πρὸς ταῦτα μνήσθητί μου, ὁ θεός, καὶ φεῖσαί μου κατὰ τὸ πλῆθος τοῦ ἐλέους σου.

Intermarriage Forbidden

23Καὶ ἐν ταῖς ἡμέραις ἐκείναις εἶδον τοὺς Ἰουδαίους οἳ ἐκάθισαν γυναῖκας Ἀζωτίας, Ἀμμανείτιδας, Μωαβείτιδας, 24καὶ οἱ υἱοὶ αὐτῶν ἥμισυ λαλοῦντες Ἀζωτιστί, καὶ οὐκ εἰσὶν ἐπιγινώσκοντες λαλεῖν Ἰουδαιστί. 25καὶ ἐμαχεσάμην μετ᾽ αὐτῶν καὶ ἐκαταρασάμην αὐτούς· καὶ ἐπάταξα ἐν αὐτοῖς ἄνδρας καὶ ὥρκισα αὐτοὺς ἐν τῷ θεῷ Ἐὰν δῶτε τὰς θυγατέρας ὑμῶν τοῖς υἱοῖς αὐτῶν, καὶ ἐὰν λάβητε ἀπὸ τῶν θυγατέρων αὐτῶν τοῖς υἱοῖς ὑμῶν. 26οὐχ οὕτως ἥμαρτεν Σαλωμὼν βασιλεὺς Ἰσραήλ; καὶ ἐν ἔθνεσιν πολλοῖς οὐκ ἦν βασιλεὺς ὅμοιος αὐτῷ, καὶ ἀγαπώμενος τῷ θεῷ ἦν, καὶ ἔδωκεν αὐτὸν ὁ θεὸς εἰς βασιλέα ἐπὶ πάντα Ἰσραήλ, καὶ τοῦτον ἐξέκλιναν αἱ γυναῖκες αἱ ἀλλότριαι. 27καὶ ὑμῶν μὴ ἀκουσόμεθα ποιῆσαι πᾶσαν πονηρίαν ταύτην, ἀσυνθετῆσαι ἐν τῷ θεῷ ἡμῶν, καθίσαι γυναῖκας ἀλλοτρίας. 28καὶ ἀπὸ υἱῶν Ἰωαδὰ τοῦ Ἐλεισοὺβ τοῦ ἱερέως τοῦ μεγάλου νυμφίου τοῦ Σαναβαλλάτ· καὶ ἐξέβρασα αὐτοὺς ἀπ᾽ ἐμοῦ. 29μνήσθητι αὐτοῖς ὁ θεὸς ἐπὶ ἀγχιστείᾳ τῆς ἱερατείας καὶ διαθήκης τῆς ἱερατείας καὶ τοὺς Λευείτας.

30καὶ ἐκαθάρισα αὐτοὺς ἀπὸ πάσης ἀλλοτριώσεως, καὶ ἔστησα ἐφημερίας τοῖς ἱερεῦσιν καὶ τοῖς Λευείταις, ἀνὴρ ὡς τὸ ἔργον αὐτοῦ, 31καὶ τὸ δῶρον τῶν ξυλοφόρων ἐν καιροῖς ἀπὸ χρόνων καὶ ἐν τοῖς βακχουρίοις. μνήσθητί μου ὁ θεὸς ἡμῶν εἰς ἀγαθωσύνην.
