1 Josias [was] eight years old when he began to reign, and he reigned thirty and one years in Jerusalem: and his mother’s name [was] Jedia, daughter of Edeia of Basuroth. 2 And he did that which was right in the sight of the Lord, and walked in all the way of David his father; he turned not aside to the right hand or to the left. 3 And it came to pass in the eighteenth year of king Josias, in the eighth month, the king sent Sapphan the son of Ezelias the son of Mesollam, the scribe of the house of the Lord, saying, 4 Go up to Chelcias the high priest, and take account of the money that is brought into the house of the Lord, which they that keep the door have collected of the people. 5 And let them give it into the hand of the workmen that are appointed in the house of the Lord. And he gave it to the workmen in the house of the Lord, to repair the breaches of the house, 6 [even] to the carpenters, and builders, and masons, [and] also to purchase timber and hewn stones, to repair the breaches of the house. 7 Only they did not call them to account for the money that was given to them, because they dealt faithfully. 8 And Chelcias the high priest said to Saphan the scribe, I have found the book of the law in the house of the Lord. And Chelcias gave the book to Sapphan, and he read it. 9 And he went into the house of the Lord to the king, and reported the matter to the king, and said, Thy servants have collected the money that was found in the house of the Lord, and have given it into the hand of the workmen that are appointed in the house of the Lord. 10 And Sapphan the scribe spoke to the king, saying, Chelcias the priest has given me a book. And Sapphan read it before the king. 11 And it came to pass, when the king heard the words of the book of the law, that he rent his garments. 12 And the king commanded Chelcias the priest, and Achikam the son of Sapphan, and Achobor the son of Michaias, and Sapphan the scribe, and Asaias the king’s servant, saying, 13 Go, enquire of the Lord for me, and for all the people, and for all Juda, and concerning the words of this book that has been found: for the wrath of the Lord that has been kindled against us [is] great, because our fathers hearkened not to the words of this book, to do according to all the things written concerning us. 14 So Chelcias the priest went, and Achicam, and Achobor, and Sapphan, and Asaias, to Olda the prophetess, the mother of Sellem the son of Thecuan son of Aras, keeper of the robes; and she dwelt in Jerusalem in Masena; and they spoke to her. 15 And she said to them, Thus saith the Lord God of Israel, Say to the man that sent you to me, 16 Thus saith the Lord, Behold, I bring evil upon this place, and upon them that dwell in it, [even] all the words of the book which the king of Juda has read: 17 because they have forsaken me, and burnt incense to other gods, that they might provoke me with the works of their hands: therefore my wrath shall burn forth against this place, and shall not be quenched. 18 And to the king of Juda that sent you to enquire of the Lord,-- thus shall ye say to him, Thus saith the Lord God of Israel, [As for] the words which thou hast heard; 19 because thy heart was softened, and thou was humbled before [me], when thou heardest all that I spoke against this place, and against the inhabitants of it, that it should be utterly destroyed and accursed, and thou didst rend thy garments, and weep before me; I also have heard, saith the Lord. 20 It shall not be so [therefore]: behold, I [will] add thee to thy fathers, and thou shalt be gathered to thy tomb in peace, and thine eyes shall not see [any] among all the evils which I bring upon this place. So they reported the word to the king. ΥΙΟΣ ὀκτὼ ἐτῶν ᾿Ιωσίας ἐν τῷ βασιλεύειν αὐτὸν καὶ τριάκοντα καὶ ἓν ἔτος ἐβασίλευσεν ἐν ῾Ιερουσαλήμ, καὶ ὄνομα τῇ μητρὶ αὐτοῦ ᾿Ιεδία θυγάτηρ ᾿Εδεϊὰ ἐκ Βασουρώθ. 2 καὶ ἐποίησε τὸ εὐθὲς ἐν ὀφθαλμοῖς Κυρίου καὶ ἐπορεύθη ἐν πάσῃ ὁδῷ Δαυὶδ τοῦ πατρὸς αὐτοῦ, οὐκ ἀπέστη δεξιὰ καὶ ἀριστερά. 3 καὶ ἐγενήθη ἐν τῷ ὀκτωκαιδεκάτῳ ἔτει τῷ βασιλεῖ ᾿Ιωσίᾳ ἐν τῷ μηνὶ τῷ ὀγδόῳ ἀπέστειλεν ὁ βασιλεὺς τὸν Σαπφὰν υἱὸν ᾿Εσελίου υἱοῦ Μεσολλάμ, τὸν γραμματέα οἴκου Κυρίου λέγων· 4 ἀνάβηθι πρὸς Χελκίαν τὸν ἱερέα τὸν μέγαν καὶ σφράγισον τὸ ἀργύριον τὸ εἰσενεχθὲν ἐν οἴκῳ Κυρίου, ὃ συνήγαγον οἱ φυλάσσοντες τὸν σταθμὸν παρὰ τοῦ λαοῦ, 5 καὶ δότωσαν αὐτὸ ἐπὶ χεῖρα ποιούντων τὰ ἔργα τῶν καθεσταμένων ἐν οἴκῳ Κυρίου. καὶ ἔδωκεν αὐτὸ τοῖς ποιοῦσι τὰ ἔργα τοῖς ἐν οἴκῳ Κυρίου τοῦ κατισχῦσαι τὸ βεδὲκ τοῦ οἴκου, 6 τοῖς τέκτοσι καὶ τοῖς οἰκοδόμοις καὶ τοῖς τειχισταῖς καὶ τοῦ κτήσασθαι ξύλα καὶ λίθους λατομητούς, τοῦ κραταιῶσαι τὸ βεδὲκ τοῦ οἴκου. 7 πλὴν οὐκ ἐξελογίζοντο αὐτοὺς τὸ ἀργύριον τὸ διδόμενον αὐτοῖς, ὅτι ἐν πίστει αὐτοὶ ποιοῦσι. 8 καὶ εἶπε Χελκίας ὁ ἱερεὺς ὁ μέγας πρὸς Σαπφὰν τὸν γραμματέα· βιβλίον τοῦ νόμου εὗρον ἐν οἴκῳ Κυρίου· καὶ ἔδωκε Χελκίας τὸ βιβλίον πρὸς Σαπφάν, καὶ ἀνέγνω αὐτό. 9 καὶ εἰσῆλθεν ἐν οἴκῳ Κυρίου πρὸς τὸν βασιλέα καὶ ἀπέστρεψε τῷ βασιλεῖ ῥῆμα καὶ εἶπεν· ἐχώνευσαν οἱ δοῦλοί σου τὸ ἀργύριον τὸ εὑρεθὲν ἐν οἴκῳ Κυρίου καὶ ἔδωκαν αὐτὸ ἐπὶ χεῖρα ποιούντων τὰ ἔργα καθεσταμένων ἐν οἴκῳ Κυρίου 10 καὶ εἶπε Σαπφὰν ὁ γραμματεὺς πρὸς τὸν βασιλέα λέγων· βιβλίον ἔδωκέ μοι Χελκίας ὁ ἱερεὺς καὶ ἀνέγνω αὐτὸ Σαπφὰν ἐνώπιον τοῦ βασιλέως. 11 καὶ ἐγένετο ὡς ἤκουσεν ὁ βασιλεὺς τοὺς λόγους τοῦ βιβλίου τοῦ νόμου, καὶ διέρρηξε τὰ ἱμάτια ἑαυτοῦ. 12 καὶ ἐνετείλατο ὁ βασιλεὺς τῷ Χελκίᾳ τῷ ἱερεῖ καὶ τῷ ᾿Αχικὰμ υἱῷ Σαπφὰν καὶ τῷ ᾿Αχοβὼρ υἱῷ Μιχαίου καὶ τῷ Σαπφὰν τῷ γραμματεῖ καὶ τῷ ᾿Ασαΐᾳ δούλῳ τοῦ βασιλέως λέγων· 13 δεῦτε ἐκζητήσατε τὸν Κύριον περὶ ἐμοῦ καὶ περὶ παντὸς τοῦ λαοῦ καὶ περὶ παντὸς τοῦ ᾿Ιούδα περὶ τῶν λόγων τοῦ βιβλίου τοῦ εὑρεθέντος τούτου, ὅτι μεγάλη ἡ ὀργὴ Κυρίου ἡ ἐκκεκαυμένη ἐν ἡμῖν, ὑπὲρ οὗ οὐκ ἤκουσαν οἱ πατέρες ἡμῶν τῶν λόγων τοῦ βιβλίου τούτου τοῦ ποιεῖν κατὰ πάντα τὰ γεγραμμένα καθ᾿ ἡμῶν. 14 καὶ ἐπορεύθη Χελκίας ὁ ἱερεὺς καὶ ᾿Αχικὰμ καὶ ᾿Αχοβὼρ καὶ Σαπφὰν καὶ ᾿Ασαΐας πρὸς ῎Ολδαν τὴν προφῆτιν μητέρα Σελλὴμ υἱοῦ Θεκουὲ υἱοῦ ᾿Αραὰς τοῦ ἱματιοφύλακος, καὶ αὕτη κατῴκει ἐν ῾Ιερουσαλὴμ ἐν τῇ Μασενᾷ, καὶ ἐλάλησαν πρὸς αὐτήν. 15 καὶ εἶπεν αὐτοῖς· τάδε λέγει Κύριος ὁ Θεὸς ᾿Ισραήλ· εἴπατε τῷ ἀνδρὶ τῷ ἀποστείλαντι ὑμᾶς πρός με· 16 τάδε λέγει Κύριος· ἰδοὺ ἐγὼ ἐπάγω κακὰ ἐπὶ τὸν τόπον τοῦτον καὶ ἐπὶ τοὺς ἐνοικοῦντας αὐτόν, πάντας τοὺς λόγους τοῦ βιβλίου, οὓς ἀνέγνω βασιλεὺς ᾿Ιούδα, 17 ἀνθ᾿ ὧν ἐγκατέλιπόν με καὶ ἐθυμίων θεοῖς ἑτέροις, ὅπως παροργίσωσί με ἐν τοῖς ἔργοις τῶν χειρῶν αὐτῶν, καὶ ἐκκαυθήσεται θυμός μου ἐν τῷ τόπῳ τούτῳ καὶ οὐ σβεσθήσεται. 18 καὶ πρὸς βασιλέα ᾿Ιούδα τὸν ἀποστείλαντα ὑμᾶς ἐπιζητῆσαι τὸν Κύριον τάδε ἐρεῖτε πρὸς αὐτόν· τάδε λέγει Κύριος ὁ Θεὸς ᾿Ισραήλ· οἱ λόγοι, οὓς ἤκουσας, 19 ἀνθ᾿ ὧν ὅτι ἡπαλύνθη ἡ καρδία σου καὶ ἐνετράπης ἀπὸ προσώπου, ὡς ἤκουσας ὅσα ἐλάλησα ἐπὶ τὸν τόπον τοῦτον καὶ ἐπὶ τοὺς ἐνοικοῦντας αὐτὸν τοῦ εἶναι εἰς ἀφανισμὸν καὶ εἰς κατάραν, καὶ διέρρηξας τὰ ἱμάτιά σου καὶ ἔκλαυσας ἐνώπιόν μου, καί γε ἐγὼ ἤκουσα, λέγει Κύριος. 20 οὐχ οὕτως· ἰδοὺ προστίθημί σε πρὸς τοὺς πατέρας σου, καὶ συναχθήσῃ εἰς τὸν τάφον σου ἐν εἰρήνῃ, καὶ οὐκ ὀφθήσεται ἐν τοῖς ὀφθαλμοῖς σου ἐν πᾶσι τοῖς κακοῖς, οἷς ἐγώ εἰμι ἐπάγω ἐπὶ τὸν τόπον τοῦτον. καὶ ἐπέστρεψαν τῷ βασιλεῖ τὸ ρῆμα.
