The Holy Bible - The First Book of the Kings, Chapter 15 (Latin)
1Now in the eighteenth year of king Jeroboam the son of Nebat reigned Abijam over Judah.
2Three years reigned he in Jerusalem. and his mother's name was Maachah, the daughter of Abishalom.
3And he walked in all the sins of his father, which he had done before him: and his heart was not perfect with the LORD his God, as the heart of David his father.
4Nevertheless for David's sake did the LORD his God give him a lamp in Jerusalem, to set up his son after him, and to establish Jerusalem:
5Because David did that which was right in the eyes of the LORD, and turned not aside from any thing that he commanded him all the days of his life, save only in the matter of Uriah the Hittite.
6And there was war between Rehoboam and Jeroboam all the days of his life.
7Now the rest of the acts of Abijam, and all that he did, are they not written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Judah? And there was war between Abijam and Jeroboam.
8And Abijam slept with his fathers; and they buried him in the city of David: and Asa his son reigned in his stead.
9And in the twentieth year of Jeroboam king of Israel reigned Asa over Judah.
10And forty and one years reigned he in Jerusalem. And his mother's name was Maachah, the daughter of Abishalom.
11And Asa did that which was right in the eyes of the LORD, as did David his father.
12And he took away the sodomites out of the land, and removed all the idols that his fathers had made.
13And also Maachah his mother, even her he removed from being queen, because she had made an idol in a grove; and Asa destroyed her idol, and burnt it by the brook Kidron.
14But the high places were not removed: nevertheless Asa's heart was perfect with the LORD all his days.
15And he brought in the things which his father had dedicated, and the things which himself had dedicated, into the house of the LORD, silver, and gold, and vessels.
16And there was war between Asa and Baasha king of Israel all their days.
17And Baasha king of Israel went up against Judah, and built Ramah, that he might not suffer any to go out or come in to Asa king of Judah.
18Then Asa took all the silver and the gold that were left in the treasures of the house of the LORD, and the treasures of the king's house, and delivered them into the hand of his servants: and king Asa sent them to Benhadad, the son of Tabrimon, the son of Hezion, king of Syria, that dwelt at Damascus, saying,
19There is a league between me and thee, and between my father and thy father: behold, I have sent unto thee a present of silver and gold; come and break thy league with Baasha king of Israel, that he may depart from me.
20So Benhadad hearkened unto king Asa, and sent the captains of the hosts which he had against the cities of Israel, and smote Ijon, and Dan, and Abelbethmaachah, and all Cinneroth, with all the land of Naphtali.
21And it came to pass, when Baasha heard thereof, that he left off building of Ramah, and dwelt in Tirzah.
22Then king Asa made a proclamation throughout all Judah; none was exempted: and they took away the stones of Ramah, and the timber thereof, wherewith Baasha had builded; and king Asa built with them Geba of Benjamin, and Mizpah.
23The rest of all the acts of Asa, and all his might, and all that he did, and the cities which he built, are they not written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Judah? Nevertheless in the time of his old age he was diseased in his feet.
24And Asa slept with his fathers, and was buried with his fathers in the city of David his father: and Jehoshaphat his son reigned in his stead.
25And Nadab the son of Jeroboam began to reign over Israel in the second year of Asa king of Judah, and reigned over Israel two years.
26And he did evil in the sight of the LORD, and walked in the way of his father, and in his sin wherewith he made Israel to sin.
27And Baasha the son of Ahijah, of the house of Issachar, conspired against him; and Baasha smote him at Gibbethon, which belonged to the Philistines; for Nadab and all Israel laid siege to Gibbethon.
28Even in the third year of Asa king of Judah did Baasha slay him, and reigned in his stead.
29And it came to pass, when he reigned, that he smote all the house of Jeroboam; he left not to Jeroboam any that breathed, until he had destroyed him, according unto the saying of the LORD, which he spake by his servant Ahijah the Shilonite:
30Because of the sins of Jeroboam which he sinned, and which he made Israel sin, by his provocation wherewith he provoked the LORD God of Israel to anger.
31Now the rest of the acts of Nadab, and all that he did, are they not written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Israel?
32And there was war between Asa and Baasha king of Israel all their days.
33In the third year of Asa king of Judah began Baasha the son of Ahijah to reign over all Israel in Tirzah, twenty and four years.
34And he did evil in the sight of the LORD, and walked in the way of Jeroboam, and in his sin wherewith he made Israel to sin.
1igitur in octavodecimo anno regni Hieroboam filii Nabath regnavit Abiam super Iudam
2tribus annis regnavit in Hierusalem nomen matris eius Maacha filia Absalom
3ambulavitque in omnibus peccatis patris sui quae fecerat ante eum nec erat cor eius perfectum cum Domino Deo suo sicut cor David patris eius
4sed propter David dedit ei Dominus Deus suus lucernam in Hierusalem ut suscitaret filium eius post eum et staret Hierusalem
5eo quod fecisset David rectum in oculis Domini et non declinasset ab omnibus quae praeceperat ei cunctis diebus vitae suae excepto sermone Uriae Hetthei
6attamen bellum fuit inter Roboam et inter Hieroboam omni tempore vitae eius
7reliqua autem sermonum Abiam et omnia quae fecit nonne haec scripta sunt in libro verborum dierum regum Iuda fuitque proelium inter Abiam et inter Hieroboam
8et dormivit Abiam cum patribus suis et sepelierunt eum in civitate David regnavitque Asa filius eius pro eo
9in anno ergo vicesimo Hieroboam regis Israhel regnavit Asa rex Iuda
10et quadraginta uno anno regnavit in Hierusalem nomen matris eius Maacha filia Absalom
11et fecit Asa rectum ante conspectum Domini sicut David pater eius
12et abstulit effeminatos de terra purgavitque universas sordes idolorum quae fecerant patres eius
13insuper et Maacham matrem suam amovit ne esset princeps in sacris Priapi et in luco eius quem consecraverat subvertitque specum eius et confregit simulacrum turpissimum et conbusit in torrente Cedron
14excelsa autem non abstulit verumtamen cor Asa perfectum erat cum Deo cunctis diebus suis
15et intulit ea quae sanctificaverat pater suus et voverat in domum Domini argentum et aurum et vasa
16bellum autem erat inter Asa et Baasa regem Israhel cunctis diebus eorum
17ascendit quoque Baasa rex Israhel in Iudam et aedificavit Rama ut non possit quispiam egredi vel ingredi de parte Asa regis Iudae
18tollens itaque Asa omne argentum et aurum quod remanserat in thesauris domus Domini et in thesauris domus regiae dedit illud in manu servorum suorum et misit ad Benadad filium Tabremmon filii Ezion regem Syriae qui habitabat in Damasco dicens
19foedus est inter me et te et inter patrem meum et patrem tuum ideo misi tibi munera argentum et aurum et peto ut venias et irritum facias foedus quod habes cum Baasa rege Israhel et recedat a me
20adquiescens Benadad regi Asa misit principes exercitus sui in civitates Israhel et percusserunt Ahion et Dan et Abel domum Maacha et universam Cenneroth omnem scilicet terram Nepthalim
21quod cum audisset Baasa intermisit aedificare Rama et reversus est in Thersa
22rex autem Asa nuntium misit in omnem Iudam nemo sit excusatus et tulerunt lapides Rama et ligna eius quibus aedificaverat Baasa et extruxit de eis rex Asa Gaba Beniamin et Maspha
23reliqua autem omnium sermonum Asa et universae fortitudines eius et cuncta quae fecit et civitates quas extruxit nonne haec scripta sunt in libro verborum dierum regum Iuda verumtamen in tempore senectutis suae doluit pedes
24et dormivit cum patribus suis et sepultus est cum eis in civitate David patris sui regnavitque Iosaphat filius eius pro eo
25Nadab vero filius Hieroboam regnavit super Israhel anno secundo Asa regis Iuda regnavitque super Israhel duobus annis
26et fecit quod malum est in conspectu Domini et ambulavit in viis patris sui et in peccatis eius quibus peccare fecit Israhel
27insidiatus est autem ei Baasa filius Ahia de domo Isachar et percussit eum in Gebbethon quae est urbs Philisthinorum siquidem Nadab et omnis Israhel obsidebant Gebbethon
28interfecit igitur illum Baasa in anno tertio Asa regis Iuda et regnavit pro eo
29cumque regnasset percussit omnem domum Hieroboam non dimisit ne unam quidem animam de semine eius donec deleret eum iuxta verbum Domini quod locutus fuerat in manu servi sui Ahiae Silonitis
30propter peccata Hieroboam quae peccaverat et quibus peccare fecerat Israhel et propter delictum quo inritaverat Dominum Deum Israhel
31reliqua autem sermonum Nadab et omnia quae operatus est nonne haec scripta sunt in libro verborum dierum regum Israhel
32fuitque bellum inter Asa et Baasa regem Israhel cunctis diebus eorum
33anno tertio Asa regis Iuda regnavit Baasa filius Ahia super omnem Israhel in Thersa viginti quattuor annis
34et fecit malum coram Domino ambulavitque in via Hieroboam et in peccatis eius quibus peccare fecit Israhel
