2 Kings 22 Text (WEB)
  1. Josiah was eight years old when he began to reign; and he reigned thirty-one years in Jerusalem: and his mother's name was Jedidah the daughter of Adaiah of Bozkath.
  2. He did that which was right in the eyes of Yahweh, and walked in all the way of David his father, and didn't turn aside to the right hand or to the left.
  3. It happened in the eighteenth year of king Josiah, that the king sent Shaphan, the son of Azaliah the son of Meshullam, the scribe, to the house of Yahweh, saying,
  4. "Go up to Hilkiah the high priest, that he may sum the money which is brought into the house of Yahweh, which the keepers of the threshold have gathered of the people.
  5. Let them deliver it into the hand of the workmen who have the oversight of the house of Yahweh; and let them give it to the workmen who are in the house of Yahweh, to repair the breaches of the house,
  6. to the carpenters, and to the builders, and to the masons, and for buying timber and cut stone to repair the house.
  7. However there was no accounting made with them of the money that was delivered into their hand; for they dealt faithfully."
  8. Hilkiah the high priest said to Shaphan the scribe, "I have found the book of the law in the house of Yahweh." Hilkiah delivered the book to Shaphan, and he read it.
  9. Shaphan the scribe came to the king, and brought the king word again, and said, "Your servants have emptied out the money that was found in the house, and have delivered it into the hand of the workmen who have the oversight of the house of Yahweh."
  10. Shaphan the scribe told the king, saying, "Hilkiah the priest has delivered a book to me." Shaphan read it before the king.
  11. It happened, when the king had heard the words of the book of the law, that he tore his clothes.
  12. The king commanded Hilkiah the priest, and Ahikam the son of Shaphan, and Achbor the son of Micaiah, and Shaphan the scribe, and Asaiah the king's servant, saying,
  13. "Go inquire of Yahweh for me, and for the people, and for all Judah, concerning the words of this book that is found; for great is the wrath of Yahweh that is kindled against us, because our fathers have not listened to the words of this book, to do according to all that which is written concerning us."
  14. So Hilkiah the priest, and Ahikam, and Achbor, and Shaphan, and Asaiah, went to Huldah the prophetess, the wife of Shallum the son of Tikvah, the son of Harhas, keeper of the wardrobe (now she lived in Jerusalem in the second quarter); and they talked with her.
  15. She said to them, "Thus says Yahweh, the God of Israel: 'Tell the man who sent you to me,
  16. "Thus says Yahweh, 'Behold, I will bring evil on this place, and on its inhabitants, even all the words of the book which the king of Judah has read.
  17. Because they have forsaken me, and have burned incense to other gods, that they might provoke me to anger with all the work of their hands, therefore my wrath shall be kindled against this place, and it shall not be quenched.'"
  18. But to the king of Judah, who sent you to inquire of Yahweh, thus you shall tell him, "Thus says Yahweh, the God of Israel: 'Concerning the words which you have heard,
  19. because your heart was tender, and you humbled yourself before Yahweh, when you heard what I spoke against this place, and against its inhabitants, that they should become a desolation and a curse, and have torn your clothes, and wept before me; I also have heard you,' says Yahweh.
  20. 'Therefore, behold, I will gather you to your fathers, and you shall be gathered to your grave in peace, neither shall your eyes see all the evil which I will bring on this place.'"'" They brought back this message to the king.

  3. και εγενηθη εν τω οκτωκαιδεκατω ετει τω βασιλει ιωσια εν τω μηνι τω ογδοω απεστειλεν ο βασιλευς τον σαφφαν υιον εσελιου υιου μεσολλαμ τον γραμματεα οικου κυριου
  4. αναβηθι προς χελκιαν τον ιερεα τον μεγαν και σφραγισον το αργυριον το εισενεχθεν εν οικω κυριου ο συνηγαγον οι φυλασσοντες τον σταθμον παρα του
  5. και δοτωσαν αυτο επι χειρα ποιουντων τα εργα των καθεσταμενων εν οικω κυριου και εδωκεν αυτο τοις ποιουσιν τα εργα τοις εν οικω κυριου του κατισχυσαι το βεδεκ του

2 Kings 22 Text (Latin)
  1. Octo annorum erat Josias cum regnare cœpisset, triginta et uno anno regnavit in Jerusalem : nomen matris ejus Idida, filia Hadaia de Besecath.
  2. Fecitque quod placitum erat coram Domino, et ambulavit per omnes vias David patris sui : non declinavit ad dexteram, sive ad sinistram.
  3. Anno autem octavodecimo regis Josiæ, misit rex Saphan filium Aslia, filii Messulam scribam templi Domini, dicens ei :
  4. Vade ad Helciam sacerdotem magnum, ut confletur pecunia, quæ illata est in templum Domini, quam collegerunt janitores templi a populo,
  5. deturque fabris per præpositos domus Domini : qui et distribuant eam his qui operantur in templo Domini, ad instauranda sartatecta templi :
  6. tignariis videlicet et cæmentariis, et iis qui interrupta componunt : et ut emantur ligna, et lapides de lapicidinis, ad instaurandum templum Domini.
  7. Verumtamen non supputetur eis argentum quod accipiunt, sed in potestate habeant, et in fide.
  8. Dixit autem Helcias pontifex ad Saphan scribam : Librum legis reperi in domo Domini : deditque Helcias volumen Saphan, qui et legit illud.
  9. Venit quoque Saphan scriba ad regem, et renuntiavit ei quod præceperat, et ait : Conflaverunt servi tui pecuniam, quæ reperta est in domo Domini : et dederunt ut distribueretur fabris a præfectis operum templi Domini.
  10. Narravit quoque Saphan scriba regi, dicens : Librum dedit mihi Helcias sacerdos. Quem cum legisset Saphan coram rege,
  11. et audisset rex verba libri legis Domini, scidit vestimenta sua.
  12. Et præcepit Helciæ sacerdoti, et Ahicam filio Saphan, et Achobor filio Micha, et Saphan scribæ, et Asaiæ servo regis, dicens :
  13. Ite et consulite Dominum super me, et super populo, et super omni Juda, de verbis voluminis istius, quod inventum est : magna enim ira Domini succensa est contra nos : quia non audierunt patres nostri verba libri hujus, ut facerent omne quod scriptum est nobis.
  14. Ierunt itaque Helcias sacerdos, et Ahicam, et Achobor, et Sapham, et Asaia, ad Holdam prophetidem, uxorem Sellum, filii Thecuæ, filii Araas custodis vestium, quæ habitabat in Jerusalem in Secunda : locutique sunt ad eam.
  15. Et illa respondit eis : Hæc dicit Dominus Deus Israël : Dicite viro, qui misit vos ad me :
  16. Hæc dicit Dominus : Ecce, ego adducam mala super locum istum, et super habitatores ejus, omnia verba legis quæ legit rex Juda :
  17. quia dereliquerunt me, et sacrificaverunt diis alienis, irritantes me in cunctis operibus manuum suarum : et succendetur indignatio mea in loco hoc, et non extinguetur.
  18. Regi autem Juda, qui misit vos ut consuleretis Dominum, sic dicetis : Hæc dicit Dominus Deus Israël : Pro eo quod audisti verba voluminis,
  19. et perterritum est cor tuum, et humiliatus es coram Domino, auditis sermonibus contra locum istum, et habitatores ejus, quod videlicet fierent in stuporem et in maledictum : et scidisti vestimenta tua, et flevisti coram me, et ego audivi, ait Dominus :
  20. idcirco colligam te ad patres tuos, et colligeris ad sepulchrum tuum in pace, ut non videant oculi tui omnia mala quæ inducturus sum super locum istum.
2 Kings 22 Text (KJV)
  1. Josiah was eight years old when he began to reign, and he reigned thirty and one years in Jerusalem. And his mother's name was Jedidah, the daughter of Adaiah of Boscath.
  2. And he did that which was right in the sight of the LORD, and walked in all the way of David his father, and turned not aside to the right hand or to the left.
  3. And it came to pass in the eighteenth year of king Josiah, that the king sent Shaphan the son of Azaliah, the son of Meshullam, the scribe, to the house of the LORD, saying,
  4. Go up to Hilkiah the high priest, that he may sum the silver which is brought into the house of the LORD, which the keepers of the door have gathered of the people:
  5. And let them deliver it into the hand of the doers of the work, that have the oversight of the house of the LORD: and let them give it to the doers of the work which is in the house of the LORD, to repair the breaches of the house,
  6. Unto carpenters, and builders, and masons, and to buy timber and hewn stone to repair the house.
  7. Howbeit there was no reckoning made with them of the money that was delivered into their hand, because they dealt faithfully.
  8. And Hilkiah the high priest said unto Shaphan the scribe, I have found the book of the law in the house of the LORD. And Hilkiah gave the book to Shaphan, and he read it.
  9. And Shaphan the scribe came to the king, and brought the king word again, and said, Thy servants have gathered the money that was found in the house, and have delivered it into the hand of them that do the work, that have the oversight of the house of the LORD.
  10. And Shaphan the scribe shewed the king, saying, Hilkiah the priest hath delivered me a book. And Shaphan read it before the king.
  11. And it came to pass, when the king had heard the words of the book of the law, that he rent his clothes.
  12. And the king commanded Hilkiah the priest, and Ahikam the son of Shaphan, and Achbor the son of Michaiah, and Shaphan the scribe, and Asahiah a servant of the king's, saying,
  13. Go ye, inquire of the LORD for me, and for the people, and for all Judah, concerning the words of this book that is found: for great is the wrath of the LORD that is kindled against us, because our fathers have not hearkened unto the words of this book, to do according unto all that which is written concerning us.
  14. So Hilkiah the priest, and Ahikam, and Achbor, and Shaphan, and Asahiah, went unto Huldah the prophetess, the wife of Shallum the son of Tikvah, the son of Harhas, keeper of the wardrobe; (now she dwelt in Jerusalem in the college;) and they communed with her.
  15. And she said unto them, Thus saith the LORD God of Israel, Tell the man that sent you to me,
  16. Thus saith the LORD, Behold, I will bring evil upon this place, and upon the inhabitants thereof, even all the words of the book which the king of Judah hath read:
  17. Because they have forsaken me, and have burned incense unto other gods, that they might provoke me to anger with all the works of their hands; therefore my wrath shall be kindled against this place, and shall not be quenched.
  18. But to the king of Judah which sent you to inquire of the LORD, thus shall ye say to him, Thus saith the LORD God of Israel, As touching the words which thou hast heard;
  19. Because thine heart was tender, and thou hast humbled thyself before the LORD, when thou heardest what I spake against this place, and against the inhabitants thereof, that they should become a desolation and a curse, and hast rent thy clothes, and wept before me; I also have heard thee, saith the LORD.
  20. Behold therefore, I will gather thee unto thy fathers, and thou shalt be gathered into thy grave in peace; and thine eyes shall not see all the evil which I will bring upon this place. And they brought the king word again.
