The Holy Bible - The Second Book of the Kings, Chapter 9 (Latin)
1And Elisha the prophet called one of the children of the prophets, and said unto him, Gird up thy loins, and take this box of oil in thine hand, and go to Ramothgilead:
2And when thou comest thither, look out there Jehu the son of Jehoshaphat the son of Nimshi, and go in, and make him arise up from among his brethren, and carry him to an inner chamber;
3Then take the box of oil, and pour it on his head, and say, Thus saith the LORD, I have anointed thee king over Israel. Then open the door, and flee, and tarry not.
4So the young man, even the young man the prophet, went to Ramothgilead.
5And when he came, behold, the captains of the host were sitting; and he said, I have an errand to thee, O captain. And Jehu said, Unto which of all us? And he said, To thee, O captain.
6And he arose, and went into the house; and he poured the oil on his head, and said unto him, Thus saith the LORD God of Israel, I have anointed thee king over the people of the LORD, even over Israel.
7And thou shalt smite the house of Ahab thy master, that I may avenge the blood of my servants the prophets, and the blood of all the servants of the LORD, at the hand of Jezebel.
8For the whole house of Ahab shall perish: and I will cut off from Ahab him that pisseth against the wall, and him that is shut up and left in Israel:
9And I will make the house of Ahab like the house of Jeroboam the son of Nebat, and like the house of Baasha the son of Ahijah:
10And the dogs shall eat Jezebel in the portion of Jezreel, and there shall be none to bury her. And he opened the door, and fled.
11Then Jehu came forth to the servants of his lord: and one said unto him, Is all well? wherefore came this mad fellow to thee? And he said unto them, Ye know the man, and his communication.
12And they said, It is false; tell us now. And he said, Thus and thus spake he to me, saying, Thus saith the LORD, I have anointed thee king over Israel.
13Then they hasted, and took every man his garment, and put it under him on the top of the stairs, and blew with trumpets, saying, Jehu is king.
14So Jehu the son of Jehoshaphat the son of Nimshi conspired against Joram. (Now Joram had kept Ramothgilead, he and all Israel, because of Hazael king of Syria.
15But king Joram was returned to be healed in Jezreel of the wounds which the Syrians had given him, when he fought with Hazael king of Syria.) And Jehu said, If it be your minds, then let none go forth nor escape out of the city to go to tell it in Jezreel.
16So Jehu rode in a chariot, and went to Jezreel; for Joram lay there. And Ahaziah king of Judah was come down to see Joram.
17And there stood a watchman on the tower in Jezreel, and he spied the company of Jehu as he came, and said, I see a company. And Joram said, Take an horseman, and send to meet them, and let him say, Is it peace?
18So there went one on horseback to meet him, and said, Thus saith the king, Is it peace? And Jehu said, What hast thou to do with peace? turn thee behind me. And the watchman told, saying, The messenger came to them, but he cometh not again.
19Then he sent out a second on horseback, which came to them, and said, Thus saith the king, Is it peace? And Jehu answered, What hast thou to do with peace? turn thee behind me.
20And the watchman told, saying, He came even unto them, and cometh not again: and the driving is like the driving of Jehu the son of Nimshi; for he driveth furiously.
21And Joram said, Make ready. And his chariot was made ready. And Joram king of Israel and Ahaziah king of Judah went out, each in his chariot, and they went out against Jehu, and met him in the portion of Naboth the Jezreelite.
22And it came to pass, when Joram saw Jehu, that he said, Is it peace, Jehu? And he answered, What peace, so long as the whoredoms of thy mother Jezebel and her witchcrafts are so many?
23And Joram turned his hands, and fled, and said to Ahaziah, There is treachery, O Ahaziah.
24And Jehu drew a bow with his full strength, and smote Jehoram between his arms, and the arrow went out at his heart, and he sunk down in his chariot.
25Then said Jehu to Bidkar his captain, Take up, and cast him in the portion of the field of Naboth the Jezreelite: for remember how that, when I and thou rode together after Ahab his father, the LORD laid this burden upon him;
26Surely I have seen yesterday the blood of Naboth, and the blood of his sons, saith the LORD; and I will requite thee in this plat, saith the LORD. Now therefore take and cast him into the plat of ground, according to the word of the LORD.
27But when Ahaziah the king of Judah saw this, he fled by the way of the garden house. And Jehu followed after him, and said, Smite him also in the chariot. And they did so at the going up to Gur, which is by Ibleam. And he fled to Megiddo, and died there.
28And his servants carried him in a chariot to Jerusalem, and buried him in his sepulchre with his fathers in the city of David.
29And in the eleventh year of Joram the son of Ahab began Ahaziah to reign over Judah.
30And when Jehu was come to Jezreel, Jezebel heard of it; and she painted her face, and tired her head, and looked out at a window.
31And as Jehu entered in at the gate, she said, Had Zimri peace, who slew his master?
32And he lifted up his face to the window, and said, Who is on my side? who? And there looked out to him two or three eunuchs.
33And he said, Throw her down. So they threw her down: and some of her blood was sprinkled on the wall, and on the horses: and he trode her under foot.
34And when he was come in, he did eat and drink, and said, Go, see now this cursed woman, and bury her: for she is a king's daughter.
35And they went to bury her: but they found no more of her than the skull, and the feet, and the palms of her hands.
36Wherefore they came again, and told him. And he said, This is the word of the LORD, which he spake by his servant Elijah the Tishbite, saying, In the portion of Jezreel shall dogs eat the flesh of Jezebel:
37And the carcase of Jezebel shall be as dung upon the face of the field in the portion of Jezreel; so that they shall not say, This is Jezebel.
1Heliseus autem prophetes vocavit unum de filiis prophetarum et ait illi accinge lumbos tuos et tolle lenticulam olei hanc in manu tua et vade in Ramoth Galaad
2cumque veneris illuc videbis Hieu filium Iosaphat filii Namsi et ingressus suscitabis eum de medio fratrum suorum et introduces interius cubiculum
3tenensque lenticulam olei fundes super caput eius et dices haec dicit Dominus unxi te regem super Israhel aperiesque ostium et fugies et non ibi subsistes
4abiit ergo adulescens puer prophetae Ramoth Galaad
5et ingressus est ecce autem principes exercitus sedebant et ait verbum mihi ad te princeps dixitque Hieu ad quem ex omnibus nobis at ille dixit ad te o princeps
6et surrexit et ingressus est cubiculum at ille fudit oleum super caput eius et ait haec dicit Dominus Deus Israhel unxi te regem super populum Domini Israhel
7et percuties domum Ahab domini tui ut ulciscar sanguinem servorum meorum prophetarum et sanguinem omnium servorum Domini de manu Hiezabel
8perdamque omnem domum Ahab et interficiam de Ahab mingentem ad parietem et clausum et novissimum in Israhel
9et dabo domum Ahab sicut domum Hieroboam filii Nabath et sicut domum Baasa filii Ahia
10Hiezabel quoque comedent canes in agro Hiezrahel nec erit qui sepeliat eam aperuitque ostium et fugit
11Hieu autem egressus est ad servos domini sui qui dixerunt ei rectene sunt omnia quid venit insanus iste ad te qui ait eis nostis hominem et quid locutus sit
12at illi responderunt falsum est sed magis narra nobis qui ait eis haec et haec locutus est mihi et ait haec dicit Dominus unxi te regem super Israhel
13festinaverunt itaque et unusquisque tollens pallium suum posuerunt sub pedibus eius in similitudinem tribunalis et cecinerunt tuba atque dixerunt regnavit Hieu
14coniuravit ergo Hieu filius Iosaphat filii Namsi contra Ioram porro Ioram obsederat Ramoth Galaad ipse et omnis Israhel contra Azahel regem Syriae
15et reversus fuerat ut curaretur in Hiezrahel propter vulnera quia percusserant eum Syri proeliantem contra Azahel regem Syriae dixitque Hieu si placet vobis nemo egrediatur profugus de civitate ne vadat et nuntiet in Hiezrahel
16et ascendit et profectus est in Hiezrahel Ioram enim aegrotabat ibi et Ahazia rex Iuda descenderat ad visitandum Ioram
17igitur speculator qui stabat super turrem Hiezrahel vidit globum Hieu venientis et ait video ego globum dixitque Ioram tolle currum et mitte in occursum eorum et dicat vadens rectene sunt omnia
18abiit igitur qui ascenderat currum in occursum eius et ait haec dicit rex pacata sunt omnia dixitque ei Hieu quid tibi et paci transi et sequere me nuntiavit quoque speculator dicens venit nuntius ad eos et non revertitur
19misit etiam currum equorum secundum venitque ad eos et ait haec dicit rex num pax est et ait Hieu quid tibi et paci transi et sequere me
20nuntiavit autem speculator dicens venit usque ad eos et non revertitur est autem incessus quasi incessus Hieu filii Namsi praeceps enim graditur
21et ait Ioram iunge currum iunxeruntque currum eius et egressus est Ioram rex Israhel et Ahazias rex Iuda singuli in curribus suis egressique sunt in occursum Hieu et invenerunt eum in agro Naboth Hiezrahelitis
22cumque vidisset Ioram Hieu dixit pax est Hieu at ille respondit quae pax adhuc fornicationes Hiezabel matris tuae et veneficia eius multa vigent
23convertit autem Ioram manum suam et fugiens ait ad Ahaziam insidiae Ahazia
24porro Hieu tetendit arcum manu et percussit Ioram inter scapulas et egressa est sagitta per cor eius statimque corruit in curru suo
25dixitque Hieu ad Baddacer ducem tolle proice eum in agro Naboth Hiezrahelitae memini enim quando ego et tu sedentes in curru sequebamur Ahab patrem huius quod Dominus onus hoc levaverit super eum dicens
26si non pro sanguine Naboth et pro sanguine filiorum eius quem vidi heri ait Dominus reddam tibi in agro isto dicit Dominus nunc igitur tolle proice eum in agro iuxta verbum Domini
27Ahazias autem rex Iuda videns hoc fugit per viam domus horti persecutusque est eum Hieu et ait etiam hunc percutite in curru suo in ascensu Gaber qui est iuxta Ieblaam qui fugit in Mageddo et mortuus est ibi
28et inposuerunt eum servi eius super currum suum et tulerunt Hierusalem sepelieruntque in sepulchro cum patribus suis in civitate David
29anno undecimo Ioram filii Ahab rege Ahazia super Iudam
30venit Hieu Hiezrahel porro Hiezabel introitu eius audito depinxit oculos suos stibio et ornavit caput suum et respexit per fenestram
31ingredientem Hieu per portam et ait numquid pax esse potest Zamri qui interfecit dominum suum
32levavitque Hieu faciem suam ad fenestram et ait quae est ista et inclinaverunt se ad eum duo vel tres eunuchi
33at ille dixit eis praecipitate eam deorsum et praecipitaverunt eam aspersusque est sanguine paries et equorum ungulae qui conculcaverunt eam
34cumque ingressus esset et comederet bibissetque ait ite videte maledictam illam et sepelite eam quia filia regis est
35cumque issent ut sepelirent eam non invenerunt nisi calvariam et pedes et summas manus
36reversique nuntiaverunt ei et ait Hieu sermo Domini est quem locutus est per servum suum Heliam Thesbiten dicens in agro Hiezrahel comedent canes carnes Hiezabel
37et erunt carnes Hiezabel sicut stercus super faciem terrae in agro Hiezrahel ita ut praetereuntes dicant haecine est illa Hiezabel
