The Holy Bible - The Second Book of the Kings, Chapter 1 (Latin)
1Then Moab rebelled against Israel after the death of Ahab.
2And Ahaziah fell down through a lattice in his upper chamber that was in Samaria, and was sick: and he sent messengers, and said unto them, Go, enquire of Baalzebub the god of Ekron whether I shall recover of this disease.
3But the angel of the LORD said to Elijah the Tishbite, Arise, go up to meet the messengers of the king of Samaria, and say unto them, Is it not because there is not a God in Israel, that ye go to enquire of Baalzebub the god of Ekron?
4Now therefore thus saith the LORD, Thou shalt not come down from that bed on which thou art gone up, but shalt surely die. And Elijah departed.
5And when the messengers turned back unto him, he said unto them, Why are ye now turned back?
6And they said unto him, There came a man up to meet us, and said unto us, Go, turn again unto the king that sent you, and say unto him, Thus saith the LORD, Is it not because there is not a God in Israel, that thou sendest to enquire of Baalzebub the god of Ekron? therefore thou shalt not come down from that bed on which thou art gone up, but shalt surely die.
7And he said unto them, What manner of man was he which came up to meet you, and told you these words?
8And they answered him, He was an hairy man, and girt with a girdle of leather about his loins. And he said, It is Elijah the Tishbite.
9Then the king sent unto him a captain of fifty with his fifty. And he went up to him: and, behold, he sat on the top of an hill. And he spake unto him, Thou man of God, the king hath said, Come down.
10And Elijah answered and said to the captain of fifty, If I be a man of God, then let fire come down from heaven, and consume thee and thy fifty. And there came down fire from heaven, and consumed him and his fifty.
11Again also he sent unto him another captain of fifty with his fifty. And he answered and said unto him, O man of God, thus hath the king said, Come down quickly.
12And Elijah answered and said unto them, If I be a man of God, let fire come down from heaven, and consume thee and thy fifty. And the fire of God came down from heaven, and consumed him and his fifty.
13And he sent again a captain of the third fifty with his fifty. And the third captain of fifty went up, and came and fell on his knees before Elijah, and besought him, and said unto him, O man of God, I pray thee, let my life, and the life of these fifty thy servants, be precious in thy sight.
14Behold, there came fire down from heaven, and burnt up the two captains of the former fifties with their fifties: therefore let my life now be precious in thy sight.
15And the angel of the LORD said unto Elijah, Go down with him: be not afraid of him. And he arose, and went down with him unto the king.
16And he said unto him, Thus saith the LORD, Forasmuch as thou hast sent messengers to enquire of Baalzebub the god of Ekron, is it not because there is no God in Israel to enquire of his word? therefore thou shalt not come down off that bed on which thou art gone up, but shalt surely die.
17So he died according to the word of the LORD which Elijah had spoken. And Jehoram reigned in his stead in the second year of Jehoram the son of Jehoshaphat king of Judah; because he had no son.
18Now the rest of the acts of Ahaziah which he did, are they not written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Israel?
1praevaricatus est autem Moab in Israhel postquam mortuus est Ahab
2ceciditque Ohozias per cancellos cenaculi sui quod habebat in Samaria et aegrotavit misitque nuntios dicens ad eos ite consulite Beelzebub deum Accaron utrum vivere queam de infirmitate mea hac
3angelus autem Domini locutus est ad Heliam Thesbiten surge ascende in occursum nuntiorum regis Samariae et dices ad eos numquid non est Deus in Israhel ut eatis ad consulendum Beelzebub deum Accaron
4quam ob rem haec dicit Dominus de lectulo super quem ascendisti non descendes sed morte morieris et abiit Helias
5reversique sunt nuntii ad Ohoziam qui dixit eis quare reversi estis
6at illi responderunt ei vir occurrit nobis et dixit ad nos ite revertimini ad regem qui misit vos et dicetis ei haec dicit Dominus numquid quia non erat Deus in Israhel mittis ut consulatur Beelzebub deus Accaron idcirco de lectulo super quem ascendisti non descendes sed morte morieris
7qui dixit eis cuius figurae et habitu est vir qui occurrit vobis et locutus est verba haec
8at illi dixerunt vir pilosus et zona pellicia accinctis renibus qui ait Helias Thesbites est
9misitque ad eum quinquagenarium principem et quinquaginta qui erant sub eo qui ascendit ad eum sedentique in vertice montis ait homo Dei rex praecepit ut descendas
10respondensque Helias dixit quinquagenario si homo Dei sum descendat ignis e caelo et devoret te et quinquaginta tuos descendit itaque ignis e caelo et devoravit eum et quinquaginta qui erant cum eo
11rursum misit ad eum principem quinquagenarium alterum et quinquaginta cum eo qui locutus est illi homo Dei haec dicit rex festina descende
12respondens Helias ait si homo Dei ego sum descendat ignis e caelo et devoret te et quinquaginta tuos descendit ergo ignis Dei e caelo et devoravit illum et quinquaginta eius
13iterum misit principem quinquagenarium tertium et quinquaginta qui erant cum eo qui cum venisset curvavit genua contra Heliam et precatus est eum et ait homo Dei noli despicere animam meam et animam servorum tuorum qui mecum sunt
14ecce descendit ignis de caelo et devoravit duos principes quinquagenarios primos et quinquagenos qui cum eis erant sed nunc obsecro ut miserearis animae meae
15locutus est autem angelus Domini ad Heliam dicens descende cum eo ne timeas surrexit igitur et descendit cum eo ad regem
16et locutus est ei haec dicit Dominus quia misisti nuntios ad consulendum Beelzebub deum Accaron quasi non esset Deus in Israhel a quo possis interrogare sermonem ideo de lectulo super quem ascendisti non descendes sed morte morieris
17mortuus est ergo iuxta sermonem Domini quem locutus est Helias et regnavit Ioram frater eius pro eo anno secundo Ioram filii Iosaphat regis Iudae non enim habebat filium
18reliqua autem verborum Ohoziae quae operatus est nonne haec scripta sunt in libro sermonum dierum regum Israhel
