The Holy Bible - The Second Book of the Chronicles, Chapter 26 (Latin)
1Then all the people of Judah took Uzziah, who was sixteen years old, and made him king in the room of his father Amaziah.
2He built Eloth, and restored it to Judah, after that the king slept with his fathers.
3Sixteen years old was Uzziah when he began to reign, and he reigned fifty and two years in Jerusalem. His mother's name also was Jecoliah of Jerusalem.
4And he did that which was right in the sight of the LORD, according to all that his father Amaziah did.
5And he sought God in the days of Zechariah, who had understanding in the visions of God: and as long as he sought the LORD, God made him to prosper.
6And he went forth and warred against the Philistines, and brake down the wall of Gath, and the wall of Jabneh, and the wall of Ashdod, and built cities about Ashdod, and among the Philistines.
7And God helped him against the Philistines, and against the Arabians that dwelt in Gurbaal, and the Mehunims.
8And the Ammonites gave gifts to Uzziah: and his name spread abroad even to the entering in of Egypt; for he strengthened himself exceedingly.
9Moreover Uzziah built towers in Jerusalem at the corner gate, and at the valley gate, and at the turning of the wall, and fortified them.
10Also he built towers in the desert, and digged many wells: for he had much cattle, both in the low country, and in the plains: husbandmen also, and vine dressers in the mountains, and in Carmel: for he loved husbandry.
11Moreover Uzziah had an host of fighting men, that went out to war by bands, according to the number of their account by the hand of Jeiel the scribe and Maaseiah the ruler, under the hand of Hananiah, one of the king's captains.
12The whole number of the chief of the fathers of the mighty men of valour were two thousand and six hundred.
13And under their hand was an army, three hundred thousand and seven thousand and five hundred, that made war with mighty power, to help the king against the enemy.
14And Uzziah prepared for them throughout all the host shields, and spears, and helmets, and habergeons, and bows, and slings to cast stones.
15And he made in Jerusalem engines, invented by cunning men, to be on the towers and upon the bulwarks, to shoot arrows and great stones withal. And his name spread far abroad; for he was marvellously helped, till he was strong.
16But when he was strong, his heart was lifted up to his destruction: for he transgressed against the LORD his God, and went into the temple of the LORD to burn incense upon the altar of incense.
17And Azariah the priest went in after him, and with him fourscore priests of the LORD, that were valiant men:
18And they withstood Uzziah the king, and said unto him, It appertaineth not unto thee, Uzziah, to burn incense unto the LORD, but to the priests the sons of Aaron, that are consecrated to burn incense: go out of the sanctuary; for thou hast trespassed; neither shall it be for thine honour from the LORD God.
19Then Uzziah was wroth, and had a censer in his hand to burn incense: and while he was wroth with the priests, the leprosy even rose up in his forehead before the priests in the house of the LORD, from beside the incense altar.
20And Azariah the chief priest, and all the priests, looked upon him, and, behold, he was leprous in his forehead, and they thrust him out from thence; yea, himself hasted also to go out, because the LORD had smitten him.
21And Uzziah the king was a leper unto the day of his death, and dwelt in a several house, being a leper; for he was cut off from the house of the LORD: and Jotham his son was over the king's house, judging the people of the land.
22Now the rest of the acts of Uzziah, first and last, did Isaiah the prophet, the son of Amoz, write.
23So Uzziah slept with his fathers, and they buried him with his fathers in the field of the burial which belonged to the kings; for they said, He is a leper: and Jotham his son reigned in his stead.
1omnis autem populus Iuda filium eius Oziam annorum sedecim constituit regem pro patre suo Amasia
2ipse aedificavit Ahilath et restituit eam dicioni Iudae postquam dormivit rex cum patribus suis
3sedecim annorum erat Ozias cum regnare coepisset et quinquaginta duobus annis regnavit in Hierusalem nomen matris eius Hiechelia de Hierusalem
4fecitque quod erat rectum in oculis Domini iuxta omnia quae fecerat Amasias pater eius
5et exquisivit Deum in diebus Zacchariae intellegentis et videntis Deum cumque requireret Dominum direxit eum in omnibus
6denique egressus est et pugnavit contra Philisthim et destruxit murum Geth et murum Iabniae murumque Azoti aedificavit quoque oppida in Azoto et in Philisthim
7et adiuvit eum Deus contra Philisthim et contra Arabas qui habitabant in Gurbaal et contra Ammanitas
8pendebantque Ammanitae munera Oziae et divulgatum est nomen eius usque ad introitum Aegypti propter crebras victorias
9aedificavitque Ozias turres in Hierusalem super portam Anguli et super portam Vallis et reliquas in eodem muri latere firmavitque eas
10extruxit etiam turres in solitudine et fodit cisternas plurimas eo quod haberet multa pecora tam in campestribus quam in heremi vastitate vineas quoque habuit et vinitores in montibus et in Carmelo erat quippe homo agriculturae deditus
11fuit autem exercitus bellatorum eius qui procedebant ad proelia sub manu Hiehihel scribae Maasiaeque doctoris et sub manu Ananiae qui erat de ducibus regis
12omnisque numerus principum per familias virorum fortium duum milium sescentorum
13et sub eis universus exercitus trecentorum et septem milium quingentorum qui erant apti ad bella et pro rege contra adversarios dimicabant
14praeparavit quoque eis Ozias id est cuncto exercitui clypeos et hastas et galeas et loricas arcusque et fundas ad iaciendos lapides
15et fecit in Hierusalem diversi generis machinas quas in turribus conlocavit et in angulis murorum ut mitterent sagittas et saxa grandia egressumque est nomen eius procul eo quod auxiliaretur ei Dominus et corroborasset illum
16sed cum roboratus esset elevatum est cor eius in interitum suum et neglexit Dominum Deum suum ingressusque templum Domini adolere voluit incensum super altare thymiamatis
17statimque ingressus post eum Azarias sacerdos et cum eo sacerdotes Domini octoginta viri fortissimi
18restiterunt regi atque dixerunt non est tui officii Ozia ut adoleas incensum Domino sed sacerdotum hoc est filiorum Aaron qui consecrati sunt ad huiuscemodi ministerium egredere de sanctuario ne contempseris quia non reputabitur tibi in gloriam hoc a Domino Deo
19iratusque est Ozias et tenens in manu turibulum ut adoleret incensum minabatur sacerdotibus statimque orta est lepra in fronte eius coram sacerdotibus in domo Domini super altare thymiamatis
20cumque respexisset eum Azarias pontifex et omnes reliqui sacerdotes viderunt lepram in fronte eius et festinato expulerunt eum sed et ipse perterritus adceleravit egredi eo quod sensisset ilico plagam Domini
21fuit igitur Ozias rex leprosus usque ad diem mortis suae et habitavit in domo separata plenus lepra ob quam et eiectus fuerat de domo Domini porro Ioatham filius eius rexit domum regis et iudicabat populum terrae
22reliqua autem sermonum Oziae priorum et novissimorum scripsit Esaias filius Amos propheta
23dormivitque Ozias cum patribus suis et sepelierunt eum in agro regalium sepulchrorum eo quod esset leprosus regnavitque Ioatham filius eius pro eo
