1 Anno vicesimo tertio Ioas fi lii Ochoziae regis Iudae re gnavit Ioachaz filius Iehu super Israel in Samaria decem et septem annis.
2 Et fecit malum coram Domino secutusque est peccatum Ieroboam filii Nabat, qui peccare fecit Israel; non declinavit ab eo.
3 Iratusque est furor Domini contra Israel et tradidit eos in manu Hazael regis Syriae et in manu Benadad filii Hazael cunctis diebus.
4 Deprecatus est autem Ioachaz faciem Domini, et audivit eum Dominus; vidit enim angustiam Israel, qua attriverat eos rex Syriae.
5 Et dedit Dominus Israeli salvatorem, et liberatus est de manu Syriae; habitaveruntque filii Israel in tabernaculis suis sicut heri et nudiustertius.
6 Verumtamen non recesserunt a peccatis domus Ieroboam, qui peccare fecit Israel; in ipsis ambulaverunt. Siquidem et palus permansit in Samaria.
7 Et non reliquit Dominus Ioachaz de populo nisi quinquaginta equites et decem currus et decem milia peditum; interfecerat enim eos rex Syriae et redegerat quasi pulverem in tritura areae.
8 Reliqua autem gestorum Ioachaz et universa, quae fecit, sed et fortitudo eius, nonne haec scripta sunt in libro annalium regum Israel?
9 Dormivitque Ioachaz cum patribus suis, et sepelierunt eum in Samaria. Regnavitque Ioas filius eius pro eo.
10 Anno tricesimo septimo Ioas regis Iudae regnavit Ioas filius Ioachaz super Israel in Samaria sedecim annis.
11 Et fecit, quod malum est in conspectu Domini; non declinavit ab omnibus peccatis Ieroboam filii Nabat, qui peccare fecit Israel; in ipsis ambulavit.
12 Reliqua autem gestorum Ioas et universa, quae fecit, sed et fortitudo eius, quomodo pugnaverit contra Amasiam regem Iudae, nonne haec scripta sunt in libro annalium regum Israel?
13 Et dormivit Ioas cum patribus suis; Ieroboam autem sedit super solium eius. Porro Ioas sepultus est in Samaria cum regibus Israel.
14 Eliseus autem aegrotabat infirmitate, qua et mortuus est; descenditque ad eum Ioas rex Israel et flebat coram eo dicebatque: "Pater mi, pater mi, currus Israel et auriga eius!".
15 Et ait illi Eliseus: "Affer arcum et sagittas". Cumque attulisset ad eum arcum et sagittas,
16 dixit ad regem Israel: "Pone manum tuam super arcum". Et, cum posuisset ille manum suam, superposuit Eliseus manus suas manibus regis
17 et ait: "Aperi fenestram orientalem". Cumque aperuisset, dixit Eliseus: "Iace sagittam!". Et iecit. Et ait Eliseus: "Sagitta salutis Domini, et sagitta salutis contra Syriam. Percutiesque Syriam in Aphec, donec consumas eam".
18 Et ait: "Tolle sagittas". Qui cum tulisset, rursum dixit ei: "Percute iaculo terram!". Et, cum percussisset tribus vicibus et stetisset,
19 iratus est contra eum vir Dei et ait: "Si percussisses quinquies aut sexies, percussisses Syriam usque ad consummationem; nunc autem tribus vicibus percuties eam".
20 Mortuus est ergo Eliseus, et sepelierunt eum. Latrunculi autem de Moab venerunt in terra in ipso anno.
21 Quidam autem sepelientes hominem viderunt latrunculos et proiecerunt cadaver in sepulcro Elisei et abierunt. Quod cum tetigisset ossa Elisei, revixit homo et stetit super pedes suos.
22 Igitur Hazael rex Syriae afflixit Israel cunctis diebus Ioachaz.
23 Et misertus est Dominus eorum et reversus est ad eos propter pactum suum, quod habebat cum Abraham, Isaac et Iacob, et noluit disperdere eos neque proicere penitus usque in praesens tempus.
24 Mortuus est autem Hazael rex Syriae; et regnavit Benadad filius eius pro eo.
25 Porro Ioas filius Ioachaz tulit urbes de manu Benadad filii Hazael, quas tulerat de manu Ioachaz patris sui iure proelii; tribus vicibus percussit eum Ioas et reddidit civitates Israeli.
King James Version
1 In the three and twentieth year of Joash the son of Ahaziah king of Judah Jehoahaz the son of Jehu began to reign over Israel in Samaria, and reigned seventeen years.
2 And he did that which was evil in the sight of the LORD, and followed the sins of Jeroboam the son of Nebat, which made Israel to sin; he departed not therefrom.
3 ¶ And the anger of the LORD was kindled against Israel, and he delivered them into the hand of Hazael king of Syria, and into the hand of Ben-hadad the son of Hazael, all their days.
4 And Jehoahaz besought the LORD, and the LORD hearkened unto him: for he saw the oppression of Israel, because the king of Syria oppressed them.
5 (And the LORD gave Israel a saviour, so that they went out from under the hand of the Syrians: and the children of Israel dwelt in their tents, as beforetime.
6 Nevertheless they departed not from the sins of the house of Jeroboam, who made Israel sin, but walked therein: and there remained the grove also in Samaria.)
7 Neither did he leave of the people to Jehoahaz but fifty horsemen, and ten chariots, and ten thousand footmen; for the king of Syria had destroyed them, and had made them like the dust by threshing.
8 ¶ Now the rest of the acts of Jehoahaz, and all that he did, and his might, are they not written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Israel?
9 And Jehoahaz slept with his fathers; and they buried him in Samaria: and Joash his son reigned in his stead.
10 ¶ In the thirty and seventh year of Joash king of Judah began Jehoash the son of Jehoahaz to reign over Israel in Samaria, and reigned sixteen years.
11 And he did that which was evil in the sight of the LORD; he departed not from all the sins of Jeroboam the son of Nebat, who made Israel sin: but he walked therein.
12 And the rest of the acts of Joash, and all that he did, and his might wherewith he fought against Amaziah king of Judah, are they not written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Israel?
13 And Joash slept with his fathers; and Jeroboam sat upon his throne: and Joash was buried in Samaria with the kings of Israel.
14 ¶ Now Elisha was fallen sick of his sickness whereof he died. And Joash the king of Israel came down unto him, and wept over his face, and said, O my father, my father, the chariot of Israel, and the horsemen thereof.
15 And Elisha said unto him, Take bow and arrows. And he took unto him bow and arrows.
16 And he said to the king of Israel, Put thine hand upon the bow. And he put his hand upon it: and Elisha put his hands upon the king's hands.
17 And he said, Open the window eastward. And he opened it. Then Elisha said, Shoot. And he shot. And he said, The arrow of the LORD'S deliverance, and the arrow of deliverance from Syria: for thou shalt smite the Syrians in Aphek, till thou have consumed them.
18 And he said, Take the arrows. And he took them. And he said unto the king of Israel, Smite upon the ground. And he smote thrice, and stayed.
19 And the man of God was wroth with him, and said, Thou shouldest have smitten five or six times; then hadst thou smitten Syria till thou hadst consumed it: whereas now thou shalt smite Syria but thrice.
20 ¶ And Elisha died, and they buried him. And the bands of the Moabites invaded the land at the coming in of the year.
21 And it came to pass, as they were burying a man, that, behold, they spied a band of men; and they cast the man into the sepulchre of Elisha: and when the man was let down, and touched the bones of Elisha, he revived, and stood up on his feet.
22 ¶ But Hazael king of Syria oppressed Israel all the days of Jehoahaz.
23 And the LORD was gracious unto them, and had compassion on them, and had respect unto them, because of his covenant with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, and would not destroy them, neither cast he them from his presence as yet.
24 So Hazael king of Syria died; and Ben-hadad his son reigned in his stead.
25 And Jehoash the son of Jehoahaz took again out of the hand of Ben-hadad the son of Hazael the cities, which he had taken out of the hand of Jehoahaz his father by war. Three times did Joash beat him, and recovered the cities of Israel.
