The Holy Bible - The Second Book of the Kings, Chapter 11 (Latin)
1And when Athaliah the mother of Ahaziah saw that her son was dead, she arose and destroyed all the seed royal.
2But Jehosheba, the daughter of king Joram, sister of Ahaziah, took Joash the son of Ahaziah, and stole him from among the king's sons which were slain; and they hid him, even him and his nurse, in the bedchamber from Athaliah, so that he was not slain.
3And he was with her hid in the house of the LORD six years. And Athaliah did reign over the land.
4And the seventh year Jehoiada sent and fetched the rulers over hundreds, with the captains and the guard, and brought them to him into the house of the LORD, and made a covenant with them, and took an oath of them in the house of the LORD, and shewed them the king's son.
5And he commanded them, saying, This is the thing that ye shall do; A third part of you that enter in on the sabbath shall even be keepers of the watch of the king's house;
6And a third part shall be at the gate of Sur; and a third part at the gate behind the guard: so shall ye keep the watch of the house, that it be not broken down.
7And two parts of all you that go forth on the sabbath, even they shall keep the watch of the house of the LORD about the king.
8And ye shall compass the king round about, every man with his weapons in his hand: and he that cometh within the ranges, let him be slain: and be ye with the king as he goeth out and as he cometh in.
9And the captains over the hundreds did according to all things that Jehoiada the priest commanded: and they took every man his men that were to come in on the sabbath, with them that should go out on the sabbath, and came to Jehoiada the priest.
10And to the captains over hundreds did the priest give king David's spears and shields, that were in the temple of the LORD.
11And the guard stood, every man with his weapons in his hand, round about the king, from the right corner of the temple to the left corner of the temple, along by the altar and the temple.
12And he brought forth the king's son, and put the crown upon him, and gave him the testimony; and they made him king, and anointed him; and they clapped their hands, and said, God save the king.
13And when Athaliah heard the noise of the guard and of the people, she came to the people into the temple of the LORD.
14And when she looked, behold, the king stood by a pillar, as the manner was, and the princes and the trumpeters by the king, and all the people of the land rejoiced, and blew with trumpets: and Athaliah rent her clothes, and cried, Treason, Treason.
15But Jehoiada the priest commanded the captains of the hundreds, the officers of the host, and said unto them, Have her forth without the ranges: and him that followeth her kill with the sword. For the priest had said, Let her not be slain in the house of the LORD.
16And they laid hands on her; and she went by the way by the which the horses came into the king's house: and there was she slain.
17And Jehoiada made a covenant between the LORD and the king and the people, that they should be the LORD's people; between the king also and the people.
18And all the people of the land went into the house of Baal, and brake it down; his altars and his images brake they in pieces thoroughly, and slew Mattan the priest of Baal before the altars. And the priest appointed officers over the house of the LORD.
19And he took the rulers over hundreds, and the captains, and the guard, and all the people of the land; and they brought down the king from the house of the LORD, and came by the way of the gate of the guard to the king's house. And he sat on the throne of the kings.
20And all the people of the land rejoiced, and the city was in quiet: and they slew Athaliah with the sword beside the king's house.
21Seven years old was Jehoash when he began to reign.
1Athalia vero mater Ahaziae videns mortuum filium suum surrexit et interfecit omne semen regium
2tollens autem Iosaba filia regis Ioram soror Ahaziae Ioas filium Ahaziae furata est eum de medio filiorum regis qui interficiebantur et nutricem eius de triclinio et abscondit eum a facie Athaliae ut non interficeretur
3eratque cum ea in domo Domini clam sex annis porro Athalia regnavit super terram
4anno autem septimo misit Ioiada et adsumens centuriones et milites introduxit ad se in templum Domini pepigitque cum eis foedus et adiurans eos in domo Domini ostendit eis filium regis
5et praecepit illis dicens iste sermo quem facere debetis
6tertia pars vestrum introeat sabbato et observet excubitum domus regis tertia autem pars sit ad portam Sir et tertia pars ad portam quae est post habitaculum scutariorum et custodietis excubitum domus Messa
7duae vero partes e vobis omnes egredientes sabbato custodiant excubias domus Domini circum regem
8et vallabitis eum habentes arma in manibus vestris si quis autem ingressus fuerit septum templi interficiatur eritisque cum rege introeunte et egrediente
9et fecerunt centuriones iuxta omnia quae praeceperat eis Ioiada sacerdos et adsumentes singuli viros suos qui ingrediebantur sabbatum cum his qui egrediebantur e sabbato venerunt ad Ioiada sacerdotem
10qui dedit eis hastas et arma regis David quae erant in domo Domini
11et steterunt singuli habentes arma in manu sua a parte templi dextra usque ad partem sinistram altaris et aedis circum regem
12produxitque filium regis et posuit super eum diadema et testimonium feceruntque eum regem et unxerunt et plaudentes manu dixerunt vivat rex
13audivit Athalia vocem currentis populi et ingressa ad turbas in templum Domini
14vidit regem stantem super tribunal iuxta morem et cantores et tubas propter eum omnemque populum terrae laetantem et canentem tubis et scidit vestimenta sua clamavitque coniuratio coniuratio
15praecepit autem Ioiada centurionibus qui erant super exercitum et ait eis educite eam extra consepta templi et quicumque secutus eam fuerit feriatur gladio dixerat enim sacerdos non occidatur in templo Domini
16inposueruntque ei manus et inpegerunt eam per viam introitus equorum iuxta palatium et interfecta est ibi
17pepigit igitur Ioiada foedus inter Dominum et inter regem et inter populum ut esset populus Domini et inter regem et populum
18ingressusque est omnis populus terrae templum Baal et destruxerunt aras eius et imagines contriverunt valide Matthan quoque sacerdotem Baal occiderunt coram altari et posuit sacerdos custodias in domo Domini
19tulitque centuriones et Cherethi et Felethi legiones et omnem populum terrae deduxeruntque regem de domo Domini et venerunt per viam portae scutariorum in palatium et sedit super thronum regum
20laetatusque est omnis populus terrae et civitas conquievit Athalia autem occisa est gladio in domo regis
21septemque annorum erat Ioas cum regnare coepisset
