||anno septimodecimo Phacee filii Romeliae regnavit Ahaz filius Ioatham regis Iuda
In the seventeenth year of Phacee, the son of Romelia reigned Achaz, the son of Joatham, king of Juda.
||viginti annorum erat Ahaz cum regnare coepisset et sedecim annis regnavit in Hierusalem non fecit quod erat placitum in conspectu Domini Dei sui sicut David pater eius
Achaz was twenty years old when he began to reign, and he reigned sixteen years in Jerusalem: he did not that which was pleasing in the sight of the Lord, his God, as David, his father.
||sed ambulavit in via regum Israhel insuper et filium suum consecravit transferens per ignem secundum idola gentium quae dissipavit Dominus coram filiis Israhel
But he walked in the way of the kings of Israel: moreover, he consecrated also his son, making him pass through the fire, according to the idols of the nations which the Lord destroyed before the children of Israel.
||immolabat quoque victimas et adolebat incensum in excelsis et in collibus et sub omni ligno frondoso
He sacrificed also, and burnt incense in the high places, and on the hills, and under every green tree.
||tunc ascendit Rasin rex Syriae et Phacee filius Romeliae rex Israhel in Hierusalem ad proeliandum cumque obsiderent Ahaz non valuerunt superare eum
Then Rasin, king of Syria, and Phacee, son of Romelia, king of Israel, came up to Jerusalem to fight: and they besieged Achaz, but were not able to overcome him.
||in tempore illo restituit Rasin rex Syriae Ahilam Syriae et eiecit Iudaeos de Ahilam et Idumei venerunt in Ahilam et habitaverunt ibi usque in diem hanc
At that time Rasin, king of Syria, restored Aila to Syria, and drove the men of Juda out of Aila: and the Edomites came into Aila, and dwelt there unto this day.
||misit autem Ahaz nuntios ad Theglathfalassar regem Assyriorum dicens servus tuus et filius tuus ego sum ascende et salvum me fac de manu regis Syriae et de manu regis Israhel qui consurrexerunt adversum me
And Achaz sent messengers to Theglathphalasar, king of the Assyrians, saying: I am thy servant, and thy son: come up, and save me out of the hand of the king of Syria, and out of the hand of the king of Israel, who are risen up together against me.
||et cum collegisset argentum et aurum quod invenire potuit in domo Domini et in thesauris regis misit regi Assyriorum munera
And when he had gathered together the silver and gold that could be found in the house of the Lord, and in the king's treasures, he sent it for a present to the king of the Assyrians.
||qui et adquievit voluntati eius ascendit enim rex Assyriorum in Damascum et vastavit eam et transtulit habitatores eius Cyrenen Rasin autem interfecit
And he agreed to his desire: for the king of the Assyrians went up against Damascus, and laid it waste: and he carried away the inhabitants thereof to Cyrene; but Rasin he slew.
||perrexitque rex Ahaz in occursum Theglathfalassar regis Assyriorum in Damascum cumque vidisset altare Damasci misit rex Ahaz ad Uriam sacerdotem exemplar eius et similitudinem iuxta omne opus eius
And king Achaz went to Damascus to meet Theglathphalasar, king of the Assyrians, and when he had seen the altar of Damascus, king Achaz sent to Urias, the priest, a pattern of it, and its likeness, according to all the work thereof.
||extruxitque Urias sacerdos altare iuxta omnia quae praeceperat rex Ahaz de Damasco ita fecit Urias sacerdos donec veniret rex Ahaz de Damasco
And Urias, the priest, built an altar according to all that king Achaz had commanded from Damascus so did Urias, the priest, until king Achaz came from Damascus.
||cumque venisset rex de Damasco vidit altare et veneratus est illud ascenditque et immolavit holocausta et sacrificium suum
And when the king was come from Damascus, he saw the altar and worshipped it: and went up and offered holocausts, and his own sacrifice;
||et libavit libamina et fudit sanguinem pacificorum quae obtulerat super altare
And he offered libations, and poured the blood of the peace offerings, which he had offered, upon the altar.
||porro altare aeneum quod erat coram Domino transtulit de facie templi et de loco altaris et de loco templi Domini posuitque illud ex latere altaris ad aquilonem
But the altar of brass that was before the Lord, he removed from the face of the temple, and from the place of the altar, and from the place of the temple of the Lord: and he set it at the side of the altar towards the north.
||praecepit quoque rex Ahaz Uriae sacerdoti dicens super altare maius offer holocaustum matutinum et sacrificium vespertinum et holocaustum regis et sacrificium eius et holocaustum universi populi terrae et sacrificia eorum et libamina eorum et omnem sanguinem holocausti et universum sanguinem victimae super illud effundes altare vero aeneum erit paratum ad voluntatem meam
And king Achaz commanded Urias, the priest, saying: Upon the great altar offer the morning holocaust, and the evening sacrifice, and the king's holocaust, and his sacrifice, and the holocaust of the whole people of the land, and their sacrifices, and their libations: and all the blood of the holocaust, and all the blood of the victim, thou shalt pour out upon it: but the altar of brass shall be ready at my pleasure.
||fecit igitur Urias sacerdos iuxta omnia quae praeceperat rex Ahaz
So Urias, thc priest, did according to all that king Achaz had commanded him.
||tulit autem rex Ahaz celatas bases et luterem qui erat desuper et mare deposuit de bubus aeneis qui sustentabant illud et posuit super pavimentum stratum lapide
And king Achaz took away the graven bases, and the laver that was upon them: and he took down the sea from the brazen oxen that held it up, and put it upon a pavement of stone.
||Musach quoque sabbati quod aedificaverat in templo et ingressum regis exterius convertit in templo Domini propter regem Assyriorum
The Musach also for the sabbath, which he had built in the temple, and the king's entry from without, he turned into the temple of the Lord, because of the king of the Assyrians.
||reliqua autem verborum Ahaz quae fecit nonne haec scripta sunt in libro sermonum dierum regum Iuda
Now the rest of the acts of Achaz which he did, are they not written in the book of the words of the of the days of the kings of Juda?
||dormivitque Ahaz cum patribus suis et sepultus est cum eis in civitate David et regnavit Ezechias filius eius pro eo
And Achaz slept with his fathers, and was buried with them in the city of David, and Ezechias, his son, reigned in his stead.
