The Holy Bible - The Second Book of the Chronicles, Chapter 24 (Latin)
1Joash was seven years old when he began to reign, and he reigned forty years in Jerusalem. His mother's name also was Zibiah of Beersheba.
2And Joash did that which was right in the sight of the LORD all the days of Jehoiada the priest.
3And Jehoiada took for him two wives; and he begat sons and daughters.
4And it came to pass after this, that Joash was minded to repair the house of the LORD.
5And he gathered together the priests and the Levites, and said to them, Go out unto the cities of Judah, and gather of all Israel money to repair the house of your God from year to year, and see that ye hasten the matter. Howbeit the Levites hastened it not.
6And the king called for Jehoiada the chief, and said unto him, Why hast thou not required of the Levites to bring in out of Judah and out of Jerusalem the collection, according to the commandment of Moses the servant of the LORD, and of the congregation of Israel, for the tabernacle of witness?
7For the sons of Athaliah, that wicked woman, had broken up the house of God; and also all the dedicated things of the house of the LORD did they bestow upon Baalim.
8And at the king's commandment they made a chest, and set it without at the gate of the house of the LORD.
9And they made a proclamation through Judah and Jerusalem, to bring in to the LORD the collection that Moses the servant of God laid upon Israel in the wilderness.
10And all the princes and all the people rejoiced, and brought in, and cast into the chest, until they had made an end.
11Now it came to pass, that at what time the chest was brought unto the king's office by the hand of the Levites, and when they saw that there was much money, the king's scribe and the high priest's officer came and emptied the chest, and took it, and carried it to his place again. Thus they did day by day, and gathered money in abundance.
12And the king and Jehoiada gave it to such as did the work of the service of the house of the LORD, and hired masons and carpenters to repair the house of the LORD, and also such as wrought iron and brass to mend the house of the LORD.
13So the workmen wrought, and the work was perfected by them, and they set the house of God in his state, and strengthened it.
14And when they had finished it, they brought the rest of the money before the king and Jehoiada, whereof were made vessels for the house of the LORD, even vessels to minister, and to offer withal, and spoons, and vessels of gold and silver. And they offered burnt offerings in the house of the LORD continually all the days of Jehoiada.
15But Jehoiada waxed old, and was full of days when he died; an hundred and thirty years old was he when he died.
16And they buried him in the city of David among the kings, because he had done good in Israel, both toward God, and toward his house.
17Now after the death of Jehoiada came the princes of Judah, and made obeisance to the king. Then the king hearkened unto them.
18And they left the house of the LORD God of their fathers, and served groves and idols: and wrath came upon Judah and Jerusalem for this their trespass.
19Yet he sent prophets to them, to bring them again unto the LORD; and they testified against them: but they would not give ear.
20And the Spirit of God came upon Zechariah the son of Jehoiada the priest, which stood above the people, and said unto them, Thus saith God, Why transgress ye the commandments of the LORD, that ye cannot prosper? because ye have forsaken the LORD, he hath also forsaken you.
21And they conspired against him, and stoned him with stones at the commandment of the king in the court of the house of the LORD.
22Thus Joash the king remembered not the kindness which Jehoiada his father had done to him, but slew his son. And when he died, he said, The LORD look upon it, and require it.
23And it came to pass at the end of the year, that the host of Syria came up against him: and they came to Judah and Jerusalem, and destroyed all the princes of the people from among the people, and sent all the spoil of them unto the king of Damascus.
24For the army of the Syrians came with a small company of men, and the LORD delivered a very great host into their hand, because they had forsaken the LORD God of their fathers. So they executed judgment against Joash.
25And when they were departed from him, (for they left him in great diseases,) his own servants conspired against him for the blood of the sons of Jehoiada the priest, and slew him on his bed, and he died: and they buried him in the city of David, but they buried him not in the sepulchres of the kings.
26And these are they that conspired against him; Zabad the son of Shimeath an Ammonitess, and Jehozabad the son of Shimrith a Moabitess.
27Now concerning his sons, and the greatness of the burdens laid upon him, and the repairing of the house of God, behold, they are written in the story of the book of the kings. And Amaziah his son reigned in his stead.
1septem annorum erat Ioas cum regnare coepisset et quadraginta annis regnavit in Hierusalem nomen matris eius Sebia de Bersabee
2fecitque quod bonum est coram Domino cunctis diebus Ioiadae sacerdotis
3accepit autem ei Ioiadae uxores duas e quibus genuit filios et filias
4post quae placuit Ioas ut instauraret domum Domini
5congregavitque sacerdotes et Levitas et dixit eis egredimini ad civitates Iuda et colligite de universo Israhel pecuniam ad sarta tecta templi Dei vestri per singulos annos festinatoque hoc facite porro Levitae egere neglegentius
6vocavitque rex Ioiadae principem et dixit ei quare non tibi fuit curae ut cogeres Levitas inferre de Iuda et de Hierusalem pecuniam quae constituta est a Mose servo Domini ut inferret eam omnis multitudo Israhel in tabernaculum testimonii
7Otholia enim impiissima et filii eius destruxerunt domum Domini et de universis quae sanctificata fuerant templo Domini ornaverunt fanum Baalim
8praecepit ergo rex et fecerunt arcam posueruntque eam iuxta portam domus Domini forinsecus
9et praedicatum est in Iuda et Hierusalem ut deferrent singuli pretium Domino quod constituit Moses servus Dei super omnem Israhel in deserto
10laetatique sunt cuncti principes et omnis populus et ingressi contulerunt in arcam Domini atque miserunt ita ut impleretur
11cumque tempus esset ut deferrent arcam coram rege per manus Levitarum videbant enim multam pecuniam ingrediebatur scriba regis et quem primus sacerdos constituerat effundebantque pecuniam quae erat in arca porro arcam reportabant ad locum suum sicque faciebant per singulos dies et congregata est infinita pecunia
12quam dederunt rex et Ioiada his qui praeerant operibus domus Domini at illi conducebant ex ea caesores lapidum et artifices operum singulorum ut instaurarent domum Domini fabros quoque ferri et aeris ut quod cadere coeperat fulciretur
13egeruntque hii qui operabantur industrie et obducebatur parietum cicatrix per manus eorum ac suscitaverunt domum Domini in statum pristinum et firme eam stare fecerunt
14cumque conplessent omnia opera detulerunt coram rege et Ioiadae reliquam partem pecuniae de qua facta sunt vasa templi in ministerium et ad holocausta fialae quoque et cetera vasa aurea et argentea et offerebantur holocausta in domo Domini iugiter cunctis diebus Ioiadae
15senuit autem Ioiadae plenus dierum et mortuus est cum centum triginta esset annorum
16sepelieruntque eum in civitate David cum regibus eo quod fecisset bonum cum Israhel et cum domo eius
17postquam autem obiit Ioiada ingressi sunt principes Iuda et adoraverunt regem qui delinitus obsequiis eorum adquievit eis
18et dereliquerunt templum Domini Dei patrum suorum servieruntque lucis et sculptilibus et facta est ira contra Iudam et Hierusalem propter hoc peccatum
19mittebatque eis prophetas ut reverterentur ad Dominum quos protestantes illi audire nolebant
20spiritus itaque Dei induit Zacchariam filium Ioiadae sacerdotem et stetit in conspectu populi et dixit eis haec dicit Dominus quare transgredimini praeceptum Domini quod vobis non proderit et dereliquistis Dominum ut derelinqueret vos
21qui congregati adversus eum miserunt lapides iuxta regis imperium in atrio domus Domini
22et non est recordatus Ioas rex misericordiae quam fecerat Ioiadae pater illius secum sed interfecit filium eius qui cum moreretur ait videat Dominus et requirat
23cumque evolutus esset annus ascendit contra eum exercitus Syriae venitque in Iudam et Hierusalem et interfecit cunctos principes populi atque universam praedam miserunt regi Damascum
24et certe cum permodicus venisset numerus Syrorum tradidit Dominus manibus eorum infinitam multitudinem eo quod reliquissent Dominum Deum patrum suorum in Ioas quoque ignominiosa exercuere iudicia
25et abeuntes dimiserunt eum in languoribus magnis surrexerunt autem contra eum servi sui in ultionem sanguinis filii Ioiadae sacerdotis et occiderunt eum in lectulo suo et mortuus est sepelieruntque eum in civitate David sed non in sepulchris regum
26insidiati vero sunt ei Zabath filius Semath Ammanitidis et Iozabath filius Semarith Moabitidis
27porro filii eius ac summa pecuniae quae adunata fuerat sub eo et instauratio domus Dei scripta sunt diligentius in libro regum regnavitque Amasias filius eius pro eo
