||erant autem Ahab septuaginta filii in Samaria scripsit ergo Hieu litteras et misit in Samariam ad optimates civitatis et ad maiores natu et ad nutricios Ahab dicens
And Achab had seventy sons in Samaria: so Jehu wrote letters, and sent to Samaria, to the chief men of the city, and to the ancients, and to them that brought up Achab's children, saying:
||statim ut acceperitis litteras has qui habetis filios domini vestri et currus et equos et civitates firmas et arma
As soon as you receive these letters, ye that have your master's sons, and chariots, and horses, and fenced cities, and armour,
||eligite meliorem et eum qui vobis placuerit de filiis domini vestri et ponite eum super solium patris sui et pugnate pro domo domini vestri
Choose the best, and him that shall please you most of your master's sons, and set him on his father's throne, and fight for the house of your master.
||timuerunt illi vehementer et dixerunt ecce duo reges non potuerunt stare coram eo et quomodo nos valebimus resistere
But they were exceedingly afraid, and said: Behold two kings could not stand before him, and how shall we be able to resist?
||miserunt ergo praepositus domus et praefectus civitatis et maiores natu et nutricii ad Hieu dicentes servi tui sumus quaecumque iusseris faciemus nec constituemus regem quodcumque tibi placet fac
Therefore they that were over the king's house, and the rulers of the city, and the ancients, and the bringers up of the children, sent to Jehu, saying: We are thy servants: whatsoever thou shalt command us we will do; we will not make us any king: do thou all that pleaseth thee.
||rescripsit autem eis litteras secundo dicens si mei estis et oboeditis mihi tollite capita filiorum domini vestri et venite ad me hac eadem hora cras in Hiezrahel porro filii regis septuaginta viri apud optimates civitatis nutriebantur
And he wrote letters the second time to them, saying: If you be mine, and will obey me, take the heads of the sons of your master, and come to me to Jezrahel by tomorrow at this time. Now the king's sons, being seventy men, were brought up with the chief men of the city.
||cumque venissent litterae ad eos tulerunt filios regis et occiderunt septuaginta viros et posuerunt capita eorum in cofinis et miserunt ad eum in Hiezrahel
And when the letters came to them, they took the king's sons, and slew seventy persons, and put their heads in baskets, and sent them to him to Jezrahel.
||venit autem nuntius et indicavit ei dicens adtulerunt capita filiorum regis qui respondit ponite ea duos acervos iuxta introitum portae usque mane
And a messenger came, and told him, saying: They have brought the heads of the king's sons. And he said: Lay ye them in two heaps by the entering in of the gate until the morning.
||cumque diluxisset egressus est et stans dixit ad omnem populum iusti estis si ego coniuravi contra dominum meum et interfeci eum quis percussit omnes hos
And when it was light, he went out, and standing, said to all the people: You are just: if I conspired against my master, and slew him; who hath slain all these?
||videte ergo nunc quoniam non cecidit de sermonibus Domini in terram quos locutus est Dominus super domum Ahab et Dominus fecit quod locutus est in manu servi sui Heliae
See therefore now that there hath not fallen to the ground any of the words of the Lord, which the Lord spoke concerning the house of Achab, and the Lord hath done that which he spoke in the hand of his servant Elias.
||percussit igitur Hieu omnes qui reliqui erant de domo Ahab in Hiezrahel et universos optimates eius et notos et sacerdotes donec non remanerent ex eo reliquiae
So Jehu slew all that were left of the honse of Achab in Jezrahel, and all his chief men, and his friends, and his priests, till there were no remains left of him.
||et surrexit et venit in Samariam cumque venisset ad Camaram pastorum in via
And he arose, and went to Samaria: and when he was come to the shepherds' cabin in the way,
||invenit fratres Ahaziae regis Iuda dixitque ad eos quinam estis vos at illi responderunt fratres Ahaziae sumus et descendimus ad salutandos filios regis et filios reginae
He met with the brethren of Ochozias, king of Juda, and he said to them: Who are you? And they answered: We are the brethren of Ochozias, and are come down to salute the sons of the king, and the sons of the queen.
||qui ait conprehendite eos vivos quos cum conprehendissent vivos iugulaverunt eos in cisterna iuxta Camaram quadraginta duos viros et non reliquit ex eis quemquam
And he said: Take them alive. And they took them alive, and killed them at the pit by the cabin, two and forty men, and he left not any of them.
||cumque abisset inde invenit Ionadab filium Rechab in occursum sibi et benedixit ei et ait ad eum numquid est cor tuum rectum sicut cor meum cum corde tuo et ait Ionadab est si est inquit da manum tuam qui dedit manum suam at ille levavit eum ad se in curru
And when he was departed thence, he found Jonadab, the son of Rechab, coming to meet him, and he blessed him. And he said to him: Is thy heart right as my heart is with thy heart? And Jonadab said: It is. If it be, said he, give me thy hand. He gave him his hand. And he lifted him up to him into the chariot,
||dixitque ad eum veni mecum et vide zelum meum pro Domino et inpositum currui suo
And said to him: Come with me, and see my zeal for the Lord. So he made him ride in his chariot,
||duxit in Samariam et percussit omnes qui reliqui fuerant de Ahab in Samaria usque ad unum iuxta verbum Domini quod locutus est per Heliam
And brought him into Samaria. And he slew all that were left of Achab, in Samaria, to a man, according to the word of the Lord which he spoke by Elias.
||congregavit ergo Hieu omnem populum et dixit ad eos Ahab coluit Baal parum ego autem colam eum amplius
And Jehu gathered together all the people, and said to them: Achab worshipped Baal a little, but I will worship him more.
||nunc igitur omnes prophetas Baal et universos servos eius et cunctos sacerdotes ipsius vocate ad me nullus sit qui non veniat sacrificium enim grande est mihi Baal quicumque defuerit non vivet porro Hieu faciebat hoc insidiose ut disperderet cultores Baal
Now therefore call to me all the prophets of Baal, and all his servants, and all his priests: let none be wanting, for I have a great sacrifice to offer to Baal: whosoever shall be wanting, shall not live. Now Jehu did this craftily, that he might destroy the worshippers of Baal.
||dixit sanctificate diem sollemnem Baal vocavitque
And he said: Proclaim a festival for Baal. And he called,
||et misit in universos terminos Israhel et venerunt cuncti servi Baal non fuit residuus ne unus quidem qui non veniret et ingressi sunt templum Baal et repleta est domus Baal a summo usque ad summum
And he sent into all the borders of Israel; and all the servants of Baal came: there was not one left that did not come. And they went into the temple of Baal: and the house of Baal was filled, from one end to the other.
||dixitque his qui erant super vestes proferte vestimenta universis servis Baal et protulerunt eis vestes
And he said to them that were over the wardrobe: Bring forth garments for all the servants of Baal. And they brought them forth garments.
||ingressusque Hieu et Ionadab filius Rechab templum Baal et ait cultoribus Baal perquirite et videte ne quis forte vobiscum sit de servis Domini sed ut sint soli servi Baal
And Jehu, and Jonadab, the son of Rechab, went to the temple of Baal, and said to the worshippers of Baal: Search, and see that there be not any with you of the servants of the Lord, but that there be the servants of Baal only.
||ingressi sunt igitur ut facerent victimas et holocausta Hieu autem praeparaverat sibi foris octoginta viros et dixerat eis quicumque fugerit de hominibus his quos ego adduxero in manus vestras anima eius erit pro anima illius
And they went in to offer sacrifices and burnt offerings: but Jehu had prepared him fourscore men without, and said to them: If any of the men escape, whom I have brought into your hands, he that letteth him go, shall answer life for life.
||factum est ergo cum conpletum esset holocaustum praecepit Hieu militibus et ducibus suis ingredimini et percutite eos nullus evadat percusseruntque eos ore gladii et proiecerunt milites et duces et ierunt in civitatem templi Baal
And it came to pass, when the burnt offering was ended, that Jehu commanded his soldiers and captains, saying: Go in, and kill them: let none escape. And the soldiers and captains slew them with the edge of the sword, and cast them out: and they went into the city of the temple of Baal,
||et protulerunt statuam de fano Baal et conbuserunt
And brought the statue out of Baal's temple, and burnt it,
||et comminuerunt eam destruxerunt quoque aedem Baal et fecerunt pro ea latrinas usque ad diem hanc
And broke it in pieces. They destroyed also the temple of Baal, and made a jakes in its place unto this day.
||delevit itaque Hieu Baal de Israhel
So Jehu destroyed Baal out of Israel:
||verumtamen a peccatis Hieroboam filii Nabath qui peccare fecerat Israhel non recessit nec dereliquit vitulos aureos qui erant in Bethel et in Dan
But yet he departed not from the sins of Jeroboam, the son of Nabat, who made Israel to sin, nor did he forsake the golden calves that were in Bethel, and Dan.
||dixit autem Dominus ad Hieu quia studiose fecisti quod rectum erat et placebat in oculis meis et omnia quae erant in corde meo fecisti contra domum Ahab filii tui usque ad quartam generationem sedebunt super thronum Israhel
And the Lord said to Jehu: because thou hast diligently executed that which was right and pleasing in my eyes, and hast done to the house of Achab according to all that was in my heart: thy children shall sit upon the throne of Israel to the fourth generation.
||porro Hieu non custodivit ut ambularet in lege Domini Dei Israhel in toto corde suo non enim recessit a peccatis Hieroboam qui peccare fecerat Israhel
But Jehu took no heed to walk in the law of the Lord, the God of Israel, with all his heart: for he departed not from the sins of Jeroboam, who had made Israel to sin.
||in diebus illis coepit Dominus taedere super Israhel percussitque eos Azahel in universis finibus Israhel
In those days the Lord began to be weary of Israel: and Hazael ravaged them in all the coasts of Israel,
||a Iordane contra orientalem plagam omnem terram Galaad et Gad et Ruben et Manasse ab Aroer quae est super torrentem Arnon et Galaad et Basan
From the Jordan eastward, all the land of Galaad, and Gad, and Ruben, and Manasses, from Aroer, which is upon the torrent Arnon, and Galaad, and Basan.
||reliqua autem verborum Hieu et universa quae fecit et fortitudo eius nonne haec scripta sunt in libro verborum dierum regum Israhel
But the rest of the acts of Jehu, and all that he did, and his strength, are they not written in the book of the words of the days of the kings of Israel?
||et dormivit Hieu cum patribus suis sepelieruntque eum in Samaria et regnavit Ioachaz filius eius pro eo
And Jehu slept with his fathers, and they buried him in Samaria: and Joachaz, his son, reigned in his stead.
||dies autem quos regnavit Hieu super Israhel viginti et octo anni sunt in Samaria
And the time that Jehu reigned over Israel, in Samaria, was eight and twenty years.
