I Reges - caput 143 Kings - chapter 14


1 In tempore illo ægrotavit Abia filius Jeroboam.

At that time Abia the son of Jeroboam fell sick.

2 Dixitque Jeroboam uxori suæ: Surge, et commuta habitum, ne cognoscaris quod sis uxor Jeroboam: et vade in Silo, ubi est Ahias propheta, qui locutus est mihi, quod regnaturus essem super populum hunc.

And Jeroboam said to his wife: Arise, and change thy dress, that thou be not known to be the wife of Jeroboam, and go to Silo, where Ahias the prophet is, who told me, that I should reign over this people.

3 Tolle quoque in manu tua decem panes, et crustulam, et vas mellis, et vade ad illum: ipse enim indicabit tibi quid eventurum sit puero huic.

Take also with thee ten leaves, and cracknels, and a pot of honey, and go to him: for he will tell thee what shall become of this child.

4 Fecit ut dixerat, uxor Jeroboam: et consurgens abiit in Silo, et venit in domum Ahiæ: at ille non poterat videre, quia caligaverant oculi ejus præ senectute.

Jeroboam' s wife did as he told her: and rising up went to Silo, and came to the house of Ahias: but he could not see, for his eyes were dim by reason of his age.

5 Dixit autem Dominus ad Ahiam: Ecce uxor Jeroboam ingreditur ut consulat te super filio suo qui ægrotat: hæc et hæc loqueris ei. Cum ergo illa intraret, et dissimularet se esse quæ erat,

And the Lord said to Ahias: Behold the wife of Jeroboam cometh in, to consult thee concerning her son that is sick: thus and thus shalt thou speak to her. So when she was coming in, and made as if she were another woman,

6 audivit Ahias sonitum pedum ejus intrœuntis per ostium, et ait: Ingredere, uxor Jeroboam: quare aliam te esse simulas? ego autem missus sum ad te durus nuntius.

Ahias heard the sound of her feet coming in at the door, and said: Come in, thou wife of Jeroboam: why dost thou feign thyself to be another? But I am sent to thee with heavy tidings.

7 Vade, et dic Jeroboam: Hæc dicit Dominus Deus Isræl: Quia exaltavi te de medio populi, et dedi te ducem super populum meum Isræl:

Go, and tell Jeroboam: Thus saith the Lord the God of Israel: Forasmuch as I exalted thee from among the people, and made thee prince over my people Israel:

8 et scidi regnum domus David, et dedi illud tibi, et non fuisti sicut servus meus David, qui custodivit mandata mea, et secutus est me in toto corde suo, faciens quod placitum esset in conspectu meo:

And rent the kingdom away from the house of David, and gave it to thee, and thou hast not been as my servant David, who kept my commandments, and followed me with all his heart, doing that which was well pleasing in my sight:

9 sed operatus es mala super omnes qui fuerunt ante te, et fecisti tibi deos alienos et conflatiles, ut me ad iracundiam provocares, me autem projecisti post corpus tuum:

But hast done evil above all that were before thee, and hast made thee strange gods and molten gods, to provoke me to anger, and hast cast me behind thy back:

10 idcirco ecce ego inducam mala super domum Jeroboam, et percutiam de Jeroboam mingentem ad parietem, et clausum, et novissimum in Isræl: et mundabo reliquias domus Jeroboam, sicut mundari solet fimus usque ad purum.

Therefore behold I will bring evils upon the house of Jeroboam, and will cut of from Jeroboam him that pisseth against the wall, and him that is shut up, and the last in Israel: and I will sweep away the remnant of the house of Jeroboam, as dung is swept away till all be clean.

11 Qui mortui fuerint de Jeroboam in civitate, comedent eos canes: qui autem mortui fuerint in agro, vorabunt eos aves cæli: quia Dominus locutus est.

Them that shall die of Jeroboam in the city, the dogs shall eat: and them that shall die in the field, the birds of the air shall devour: for the Lord hath spoken it.

12 Tu igitur surge, et vade in domum tuam: et in ipso introitu pedum tuorum in urbem, morietur puer,

Arise thou therefore, and go to thy house: and when thy feet shall be entering into the city, the child shall die,

13 et planget eum omnis Isræl, et sepeliet: iste enim solus inferetur de Jeroboam in sepulchrum, quia inventus est super eo sermo bonus a Domino Deo Isræl, in domo Jeroboam.

And all Israel shall mourn for him, and shall bury him: for he only of Jeroboam shall be laid in a sepulchre, because in his regard there is found a good word from the Lord the God of Israel, in the house of Jeroboam.

14 Constituet autem sibi Dominus regem super Isræl, qui percutiet domum Jeroboam in hac die, et in hoc tempore:

And the Lord hath appointed himself a king over Israel, who shall cut off the house of Jeroboam in this day, and in this time:

15 et percutiet Dominus Deus Isræl, sicut moveri solet arundo in aqua: et evellet Isræl de terra bona hac, quam dedit patribus eorum, et ventilabit eos trans flumen: quia fecerunt sibi lucos, ut irritarent Dominum.

And the Lord God shall strike Israel as a reed is shaken in the water: and he shall root up Israel out of this good land, which he gave to their fathers, and shall scatter them beyond the river: because they have made to themselves groves, to provoke the Lord.

16 Et tradet Dominus Isræl propter peccata Jeroboam, qui peccavit, et peccare fecit Isræl.

And the Lord shall give up Israel for the sins of Jeroboam, who hath sinned, and made Israel to sin.

17 Surrexit itaque uxor Jeroboam, et abiit, et venit in Thersa: cumque illa ingrederetur limen domus, puer mortuus est,

And the wife of Jeroboam arose, and departed, and came to Thersa: and when she was coming in to the threshold of the house, the child died;

18 et sepelierunt eum. Et planxit eum omnis Isræl juxta sermonem Domini, quem locutus est in manu servi sui Ahiæ prophetæ.

And they buried him. And all Israel mourned for him according to the word of the Lord, which he spoke by the hand of his servant Ahias the prophet.

21 Porro Roboam filius Salomonis regnavit in Juda. Quadraginta et unius anni erat Roboam, cum regnare cœpisset: decem et septem annos regnavit in Jerusalem civitate, quam elegit Dominus ut poneret nomen suum ibi, ex omnibus tribubus Isræl. Nomen autem matris ejus Naama Ammanitis.

And Roboam the son of Solomon reigned in Juda: Roboam was one and forty years old when he began to reign: and he reigned seventeen years in Jerusalem the city, which the Lord chose out of all the tribes of Israel to put his name there. And his mother' s name wee Naama an Ammonitess.

22 Et fecit Judas malum coram Domino, et irritaverunt eum super omnibus, quæ fecerant patres eorum in peccatis suis quæ peccaverunt.

And Juda did evil in the sight of the Lord, and provoked him above all that their fathers had done, in their sins which they committed.

23 Aedificaverunt enim et ipsi sibi aras, et statuas, et lucos super omnem collem excelsum, et subter omnem arborem frondosam:

For they also built them altars, and statues, and groves upon every high hill and under every green tree:

24 sed et effeminati fuerunt in terra, feceruntue omnes abominationes gentium, quas attrivit Dominus ante faciem filiorum Isræl.

26 et tulit thesauros domus Domini, et thesauros regios, et universa diripuit: scuta quoque aurea, quæ fecerat Salomon:

And he took away the treasures of the house of the Lord, and the king' s treasures, and carried all off: as also the shields of gold which Solomon had made.

27 pro quibus fecit rex Roboam scuta ærea, et tradidit ea in manum ducum scutariorum, et eorum qui excubabant ante ostium domus regis.

And Roboam made shields of brass instead of them, and delivered them into the. hand of the captains of the shieldbearers, and of them that kept watch before the gate of the king' s house.

28 Cumque ingrederetur rex in domum Domini, portabant ea qui præeundi habebant officium: et postea reportabant ad armamentarium scutariorum.

And when the king went into the house of the Lord, they whose office it was to go before him, carried them: and afterwards they brought them back to the armoury of the shieldbearers.
