1 Anno secundo Ioas filii Ioachaz regis Israel regnavit Amasias filius Ioas regis Iudae.
2 Viginti quinque annorum erat, cum regnare coepisset, viginti autem et novem annis regnavit in Ierusalem. Nomen matris eius Ioaden de Ierusalem.
3 Et fecit rectum coram Domino, verumtamen non ut David pater eius. Iuxta omnia, quae fecit Ioas pater suus, fecit,
4 nisi hoc quod excelsa non abstulit; adhuc enim populus immolabat et adolebat in excelsis.
5 Cumque obtinuisset regnum, percussit servos suos, qui interfecerant regem patrem suum;
6 filios autem eorum, qui occiderant, non occidit, iuxta quod scriptum est in libro legis Moysi, sicut praecepit Dominus dicens: "Non morientur patres pro filiis, neque filii morientur pro patribus, sed unusquisque in peccato suo morietur".
7 Ipse percussit Edom in valle Salinarum decem milia et apprehendit Petram in proelio vocavitque nomen eius Iecethel usque in praesentem diem.
8 Tunc misit Amasias nuntios ad Ioas filium Ioachaz filii Iehu regem Israel dicens: "Veni, et videamus nos".
9 Remisitque Ioas rex Israel ad Amasiam regem Iudae dicens: "Carduus Libani misit ad cedrum, quae est in Libano, dicens: "Da filiam tuam filio meo uxorem". Transieruntque bestiae agri, quae sunt in Libano, et conculcaverunt carduum.
10 Percutiens invaluisti super Edom, et sublevavit te cor tuum; contentus esto gloria et sede in domo tua. Quare provocas malum, ut cadas tu et Iuda tecum?".
11 Et non acquievit Amasias. Ascenditque Ioas rex Israel, et viderunt se ipse et Amasias rex Iudae in Bethsames oppido Iudae.
12 Percussusque est Iuda coram Israel, et fugerunt unusquisque in tabernacula sua.
13 Amasiam vero regem Iudae filium Ioas filii Ochoziae cepit Ioas rex Israel in Bethsames et adduxit eum in Ierusalem. Et interrupit murum Ierusalem a porta Ephraim usque ad portam Anguli quadringentis cubitis.
14 Tulitque omne aurum et argentum et universa vasa, quae inventa sunt in domo Domini et in thesauris regis, et obsides; et reversus est Samariam.
15 Reliqua autem gestorum Ioas, quae fecit, et fortitudo eius, qua pugnavit contra Amasiam regem Iudae, nonne haec scripta sunt in libro annalium regum Israel?
16 Dormivitque Ioas cum patribus suis et sepultus est in Samaria cum regibus Israel; et regnavit Ieroboam filius eius pro eo.
17 Vixit autem Amasias filius Ioas rex Iudae, postquam mortuus est Ioas filius Ioachaz rex Israel, quindecim annis.
18 Reliqua autem gestorum Amasiae, nonne haec scripta sunt in libro annalium regum Iudae?
19 Factaque est contra eum coniuratio in Ierusalem, at ille fugit in Lachis; miseruntque post eum in Lachis et interfecerunt eum ibi.
20 Et asportaverunt eum in equis; sepultusque est in Ierusalem cum patribus suis in civitate David.
21 Tulit autem universus populus Iudae Azariam annos natum sedecim, et constituerunt eum regem pro patre eius Amasia.
22 Ipse aedificavit Ailath et restituit eam Iudae, postquam dormivit rex cum patribus suis.
23 Anno quinto decimo Amasiae filii Ioas regis Iudae regnavit Ieroboam filius Ioas regis Israel in Samaria quadraginta et uno anno.
24 Et fecit, quod malum est coram Domino; non recessit ab omnibus peccatis Ieroboam filii Nabat, qui peccare fecit Israel.
25 Ipse restituit terminos Israel ab introitu Emath usque ad mare Arabae iuxta sermonem Domini, Dei Israel, quem locutus est per servum suum Ionam filium Amathi prophetam, qui erat de Gethhepher.
26 Vidit enim Dominus afflictionem Israel amaram nimis, et quod consumpti essent impuber et puber, et non esset qui auxiliaretur Israel.
27 Nec locutus est Dominus, ut deleret nomen Israel de sub caelo, sed salvavit eos in manu Ieroboam filii Ioas.
28 Reliqua autem gestorum Ieroboam et universa, quae fecit, et fortitudo eius, qua proeliatus est, et quomodo restituit, quod de finibus Damasci et Emath fuerat Iudae, Israeli, nonne haec scripta sunt in libro annalium regum Israel?
29 Dormivitque Ieroboam cum patribus suis regibus Israel; et regnavit Zacharias filius eius pro eo.
King James Version
1 In the second year of Joash son of Jehoahaz king of Israel reigned Amaziah the son of Joash king of Judah.
2 He was twenty and five years old when he began to reign, and reigned twenty and nine years in Jerusalem. And his mother's name was Jehoaddan of Jerusalem.
3 And he did that which was right in the sight of the LORD, yet not like David his father: he did according to all things as Joash his father did.
4 Howbeit the high places were not taken away: as yet the people did sacrifice and burnt incense on the high places.
5 ¶ And it came to pass, as soon as the kingdom was confirmed in his hand, that he slew his servants which had slain the king his father.
6 But the children of the murderers he slew not: according unto that which is written in the book of the law of Moses, wherein the LORD commanded, saying, The fathers shall not be put to death for the children, nor the children be put to death for the fathers; but every man shall be put to death for his own sin.
7 He slew of Edom in the valley of salt ten thousand, and took Selah by war, and called the name of it Joktheel unto this day.
8 ¶ Then Amaziah sent messengers to Jehoash, the son of Jehoahaz son of Jehu, king of Israel, saying, Come, let us look one another in the face.
9 And Jehoash the king of Israel sent to Amaziah king of Judah, saying, The thistle that was in Lebanon sent to the cedar that was in Lebanon, saying, Give thy daughter to my son to wife: and there passed by a wild beast that was in Lebanon, and trode down the thistle.
10 Thou hast indeed smitten Edom, and thine heart hath lifted thee up: glory of this, and tarry at home: for why shouldest thou meddle to thy hurt, that thou shouldest fall, even thou, and Judah with thee?
11 But Amaziah would not hear. Therefore Jehoash king of Israel went up; and he and Amaziah king of Judah looked one another in the face at Beth-shemesh, which belongeth to Judah.
12 And Judah was put to the worse before Israel; and they fled every man to their tents.
13 And Jehoash king of Israel took Amaziah king of Judah, the son of Jehoash the son of Ahaziah, at Beth-shemesh, and came to Jerusalem, and brake down the wall of Jerusalem from the gate of Ephraim unto the corner gate, four hundred cubits.
14 And he took all the gold and silver, and all the vessels that were found in the house of the LORD, and in the treasures of the king's house, and hostages, and returned to Samaria.
15 ¶ Now the rest of the acts of Jehoash which he did, and his might, and how he fought with Amaziah king of Judah, are they not written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Israel?
16 And Jehoash slept with his fathers, and was buried in Samaria with the kings of Israel; and Jeroboam his son reigned in his stead.
17 ¶ And Amaziah the son of Joash king of Judah lived after the death of Jehoash son of Jehoahaz king of Israel fifteen years.
18 And the rest of the acts of Amaziah, are they not written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Judah?
19 Now they made a conspiracy against him in Jerusalem: and he fled to Lachish; but they sent after him to Lachish, and slew him there.
20 And they brought him on horses: and he was buried at Jerusalem with his fathers in the city of David.
21 ¶ And all the people of Judah took Azariah, which was sixteen years old, and made him king instead of his father Amaziah.
22 He built Elath, and restored it to Judah, after that the king slept with his fathers.
23 ¶ In the fifteenth year of Amaziah the son of Joash king of Judah Jeroboam the son of Joash king of Israel began to reign in Samaria, and reigned forty and one years.
24 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 to sin.
25 He restored the coast of Israel from the entering of Hamath unto the sea of the plain, according to the word of the LORD God of Israel, which he spake by the hand of his servant Jonah, the son of Amittai, the prophet, which was of Gath-hepher.
26 For the LORD saw the affliction of Israel, that it was very bitter: for there was not any shut up, nor any left, nor any helper for Israel.
27 And the LORD said not that he would blot out the name of Israel from under heaven: but he saved them by the hand of Jeroboam the son of Joash.
28 ¶ Now the rest of the acts of Jeroboam, and all that he did, and his might, how he warred, and how he recovered Damascus, and Hamath, which belonged to Judah, for Israel, are they not written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Israel?
29 And Jeroboam slept with his fathers, even with the kings of Israel; and Zachariah his son reigned in his stead.
