2 Kings 7 Text (WEB)
  1. Elisha said, "Hear the word of Yahweh. Thus says Yahweh, 'Tomorrow about this time a measure of fine flour will be sold for a shekel, and two measures of barley for a shekel, in the gate of Samaria.'"
  2. Then the captain on whose hand the king leaned answered the man of God, and said, "Behold, if Yahweh made windows in heaven, could this thing be?" He said, "Behold, you shall see it with your eyes, but shall not eat of it."
  3. Now there were four leprous men at the entrance of the gate. They said one to another, "Why do we sit here until we die?
  4. If we say, 'We will enter into the city,' then the famine is in the city, and we shall die there. If we sit still here, we also die. Now therefore come, and let us surrender to the army of the Syrians. If they save us alive, we will live; and if they kill us, we will only die."
  5. They rose up in the twilight, to go to the camp of the Syrians. When they had come to the outermost part of the camp of the Syrians, behold, there was no man there.
  6. For the Lord had made the army of the Syrians to hear a noise of chariots, and a noise of horses, even the noise of a great army: and they said one to another, Behold, the king of Israel has hired against us the kings of the Hittites, and the kings of the Egyptians, to come on us.
  7. Therefore they arose and fled in the twilight, and left their tents, and their horses, and their donkeys, even the camp as it was, and fled for their life.
  8. When these lepers came to the outermost part of the camp, they went into one tent, and ate and drink, and carried there silver, and gold, and clothing, and went and hid it. Then they came back, and entered into another tent, and carried there also, and went and hid it.
  9. Then they said one to another, "We aren't doing right. This day is a day of good news, and we keep silent. If we wait until the morning light, punishment will overtake us. Now therefore come, let us go and tell the king's household."
  10. So they came and called to the porter of the city; and they told them, saying, "We came to the camp of the Syrians, and, behold, there was no man there, neither voice of man, but the horses tied, and the donkeys tied, and the tents as they were."
  11. He called the porters; and they told it to the king's household within.
  12. The king arose in the night, and said to his servants, "I will now show you what the Syrians have done to us. They know that we are hungry. Therefore are they gone out of the camp to hide themselves in the field, saying, 'When they come out of the city, we shall take them alive, and get into the city.'"
  13. One of his servants answered, "Please let some take five of the horses that remain, which are left in the city. Behold, they are like all the multitude of Israel who are left in it. Behold, they are like all the multitude of Israel who are consumed. Let us send and see."
  14. They took therefore two chariots with horses; and the king sent after the army of the Syrians, saying, "Go and see."
  15. They went after them to the Jordan; and behold, all the way was full of garments and vessels, which the Syrians had cast away in their haste. The messengers returned, and told the king.
  16. The people went out, and plundered the camp of the Syrians. So a measure of fine flour was [sold] for a shekel, and two measures of barley for a shekel, according to the word of Yahweh.
  17. The king appointed the captain on whose hand he leaned to be in charge of the gate: and the people trod on him in the gate, and he died as the man of God had said, who spoke when the king came down to him.
  18. It happened, as the man of God had spoken to the king, saying, "Two measures of barley for a shekel, and a measure of fine flour for a shekel, shall be tomorrow about this time in the gate of Samaria;"
  19. and that captain answered the man of God, and said, "Now, behold, if Yahweh should make windows in heaven, might such a thing be?" and he said, "Behold, you shall see it with your eyes, but shall not eat of it."
  20. It happened like that to him; for the people trod on him in the gate, and he died.

  1. ויאמר אלישע שמעו דבר־יהוה כה אמר יהוה כעת מחר סאה־סלת בשקל וסאתים שערים בשקל בשער שמרון׃
  2. ויען השליש אשר־למלך נשען על־ידו את־איש האלהים ויאמר הנה יהוה עשה ארבות בשמים היהיה הדבר הזה ויאמר הנכה ראה בעיניך ומשם לא תאכל׃ ס
  3. וארבעה אנשים היו מצרעים פתח השער ויאמרו איש אל־רעהו מה אנחנו ישבים פה עד־מתנו׃
  4. אם־אמרנו נבוא העיר והרעב בעיר ומתנו שם ואם־ישבנו פה ומתנו ועתה לכו ונפלה אל־מחנה ארם אם־יחינו נחיה ואם־ימיתנו ומתנו׃
  5. ויקומו בנשף לבוא אל־מחנה ארם ויבאו עד־קצה מחנה ארם והנה אין־שם איש׃
  6. ואדני השמיע את־מחנה ארם קול רכב קול סוס קול חיל גדול ויאמרו איש אל־אחיו הנה שכר־עלינו מלך ישראל את־מלכי החתים ואת־מלכי מצרים לבוא עלינו׃
  7. ויקומו וינוסו בנשף ויעזבו את־אהליהם ואת־סוסיהם ואת־חמריהם המחנה כאשר־היא וינסו אל־נפשם׃
  8. ויבאו המצרעים האלה עד־קצה המחנה ויבאו אל־אהל אחד ויאכלו וישתו וישאו משם כסף וזהב ובגדים וילכו ויטמנו וישבו ויבאו אל־אהל אחר וישאו משם וילכו ויטמנו׃
  9. ויאמרו איש אל־רעהו לא־כן אנחנו עשים היום הזה יום־בשרה הוא ואנחנו מחשים וחכינו עד־אור הבקר ומצאנו עוון ועתה לכו ונבאה ונגידה בית המלך׃
  10. ויבאו ויקראו אל־שער העיר ויגידו להם לאמר באנו אל־מחנה ארם והנה אין־שם איש וקול אדם כי אם־הסוס אסור והחמור אסור ואהלים כאשר־המה׃
  11. ויקרא השערים ויגידו בית המלך פנימה׃
  12. ויקם המלך לילה ויאמר אל־עבדיו אגידה־נא לכם את אשר־עשו לנו ארם ידעו כי־רעבים אנחנו ויצאו מן־המחנה להחבה לאמר כי־יצאו מן־העיר ונתפשם חיים ואל־העיר נבא׃
  13. ויען אחד מעבדיו ויאמר ויקחו־נא חמשה מן־הסוסים הנשארים אשר נשארו־בה הנם ככל־ ישראל אשר נשארו־בה הנם ככל־המון ישראל אשר־תמו ונשלחה ונראה׃
  14. ויקחו שני רכב סוסים וישלח המלך אחרי מחנה־ארם לאמר לכו וראו׃
  15. וילכו אחריהם עד־הירדן והנה כל־הדרך מלאה בגדים וכלים אשר־השליכו ארם וישבו המלאכים ויגדו למלך׃
  16. ויצא העם ויבזו את מחנה ארם ויהי סאה־סלת בשקל וסאתים שערים בשקל כדבר יהוה׃
  17. והמלך הפקיד את־השליש אשר־נשען על־ידו על־השער וירמסהו העם בשער וימת כאשר דבר איש האלהים אשר דבר ברדת המלך אליו׃
  18. ויהי כדבר איש האלהים אל־המלך לאמר סאתים שערים בשקל וסאה־סלת בשקל יהיה כעת מחר בשער שמרון׃
  19. ויען השליש את־איש האלהים ויאמר והנה יהוה עשה ארבות בשמים היהיה כדבר הזה ויאמר הנך ראה בעיניך ומשם לא תאכל׃
  20. ויהי־לו כן וירמסו אתו העם בשער וימת׃ ס

  1. και ειπεν ελισαιε ακουσον λογον κυριου ταδε λεγει κυριος ως η ωρα αυτη αυριον μετρον σεμιδαλεως σικλου και διμετρον κριθων σικλου εν ταις πυλαις
  2. και απεκριθη ο τριστατης εφ' ον ο βασιλευς επανεπαυετο επι την χειρα αυτου τω ελισαιε και ειπεν ιδου ποιησει κυριος καταρρακτας εν ουρανω μη εσται το ρημα τουτο και ελισαιε ειπεν ιδου συ οψη τοις οφθαλμοις σου και εκειθεν ου
  3. και τεσσαρες ανδρες ησαν λεπροι παρα την θυραν της πολεως και ειπεν ανηρ προς τον πλησιον αυτου τι ημεις καθημεθα ωδε εως

  5. και ανεστησαν εν τω σκοτει εισελθειν εις την παρεμβολην συριας και ηλθον εις μερος της παρεμβολης συριας και ιδου ουκ εστιν ανηρ
  6. και κυριος ακουστην εποιησεν την παρεμβολην συριας φωνην αρματος και φωνην ιππου και φωνην δυναμεως μεγαλης και ειπεν ανηρ προς τον αδελφον αυτου νυν εμισθωσατο εφ' ημας βασιλευς ισραηλ τους βασιλεας των χετταιων και τους βασιλεας αιγυπτου του ελθειν εφ'
  7. και ανεστησαν και απεδρασαν εν τω σκοτει και εγκατελιπαν τας σκηνας αυτων και τους ιππους αυτων και τους ονους αυτων εν τη παρεμβολη ως εστιν και εφυγον προς την ψυχην
  8. και εισηλθον οι λεπροι ουτοι εως μερους της παρεμβολης και εισηλθον εις σκηνην μιαν και εφαγον και επιον και ηραν εκειθεν αργυριον και χρυσιον και ιματισμον και επορευθησαν και επεστρεψαν και εισηλθον εις σκηνην αλλην και ελαβον εκειθεν και επορευθησαν και
  9. και ειπεν ανηρ προς τον πλησιον αυτου ουχ ουτως ημεις ποιουμεν η ημερα αυτη ημερα ευαγγελιας εστιν και ημεις σιωπωμεν και μενομεν εως φωτος του πρωι και ευρησομεν ανομιαν και νυν δευρο και εισελθωμεν και αναγγειλωμεν εις τον οικον του
  10. και εισηλθον και εβοησαν προς την πυλην της πολεως και ανηγγειλαν αυτοις λεγοντες εισηλθομεν εις την παρεμβολην συριας και ιδου ουκ εστιν εκει ανηρ και φωνη ανθρωπου οτι ει μη ιππος δεδεμενος και ονος και αι σκηναι αυτων ως
  11. και εβοησαν οι θυρωροι και ανηγγειλαν εις τον οικον του βασιλεως

  13. και απεκριθη εις των παιδων αυτου και ειπεν λαβετωσαν δη πεντε των ιππων των υπολελειμμενων οι κατελειφθησαν ωδε ιδου εισιν προς παν το πληθος ισραηλ το εκλειπον και αποστελουμεν εκει και
  14. και ελαβον δυο επιβατας ιππων και απεστειλεν ο βασιλευς ισραηλ οπισω του βασιλεως συριας λεγων δευτε και
  15. και επορευθησαν οπισω αυτων εως του ιορδανου και ιδου πασα η οδος πληρης ιματιων και σκευων ων ερριψεν συρια εν τω θαμβεισθαι αυτους και επεστρεψαν οι αγγελοι και ανηγγειλαν τω
  16. και εξηλθεν ο λαος και διηρπασεν την παρεμβολην συριας και εγενετο μετρον σεμιδαλεως σικλου και διμετρον κριθων σικλου κατα το ρημα
  17. και ο βασιλευς κατεστησεν τον τριστατην εφ' ον ο βασιλευς επανεπαυετο επι τη χειρι αυτου επι της πυλης και συνεπατησεν αυτον ο λαος εν τη πυλη και απεθανεν καθα ελαλησεν ο ανθρωπος του θεου ος ελαλησεν εν τω καταβηναι τον αγγελον προς
  18. και εγενετο καθα ελαλησεν ελισαιε προς τον βασιλεα λεγων διμετρον κριθης σικλου και μετρον σεμιδαλεως σικλου και εσται ως η ωρα αυτη αυριον εν τη πυλη
  19. και απεκριθη ο τριστατης τω ελισαιε και ειπεν ιδου κυριος ποιει καταρρακτας εν τω ουρανω μη εσται το ρημα τουτο και ειπεν ελισαιε ιδου οψη τοις οφθαλμοις σου και εκειθεν ου

2 Kings 7 Text (Latin)
  1. Dixit autem Eliseus : Audite verbum Domini : Hæc dicit Dominus : In tempore hoc cras modius similæ uno statere erit, et duo modii hordei statere uno, in porta Samariæ.
  2. Respondens unus de ducibus, super cujus manum rex incumbebat, homini Dei, ait : Si Dominus fecerit etiam cataractas in cælo, numquid poterit esse quod loqueris ? Qui ait : Videbis oculis tuis, et inde non comedes.
  3. Quatuor ergo viri erant leprosi juxta introitum portæ : qui dixerunt ad invicem : Quid hic esse volumus donec moriamur ?
  4. Sive ingredi voluerimus civitatem, fame moriemur : sive manserimus hic, moriendum nobis est : venite ergo, et transfugiamus ad castra Syriæ : si pepercerint nobis, vivemus : si autem occidere voluerint, nihilominus moriemur.
  5. Surrexerunt ergo vesperi, ut venirent ad castra Syriæ. Cumque venissent ad principium castrorum Syriæ, nullum ibidem repererunt.
  6. Siquidem Dominus sonitum audiri fecerat in castris Syriæ, curruum, et equorum, et exercitus plurimi : dixeruntque ad invicem : Ecce mercede conduxit adversum nos rex Israël reges Hethæorum et Ægyptiorum, et venerunt super nos.
  7. Surrexerunt ergo, et fugerunt in tenebris, et dereliquerunt tentoria sua, et equos et asinos, in castris, fugeruntque animas tantum suas salvare cupientes.
  8. Igitur cum venissent leprosi illi ad principium castrorum, ingressi sunt unum tabernaculum, et comederunt et biberunt : tuleruntque inde argentum, et aurum, et vestes, et abierunt, et absconderunt : et rursum reversi sunt ad aliud tabernaculum, et inde similiter auferentes absconderunt.
  9. Dixeruntque ad invicem : Non recte facimus : hæc enim dies boni nuntii est. Si tacuerimus et noluerimus nuntiare usque mane, sceleris arguemur : venite, eamus, et nuntiemus in aula regis.
  10. Cumque venissent ad portam civitatis, narraverunt eis, dicentes : Ivimus ad castra Syriæ, et nullum ibidem reperimus hominem, nisi equos et asinos alligatos, et fixa tentoria.
  11. Ierunt ergo portarii, et nuntiaverunt in palatio regis intrinsecus.
  12. Qui surrexit nocte, et ait ad servos suos : Dico vobis quid fecerint nobis Syri : sciunt quia fame laboramus, et idcirco egressi sunt de castris, et latitant in agris, dicentes : Cum egressi fuerint de civitate, capiemus eos vivos, et tunc civitatem ingredi poterimus.
  13. Respondit autem unus servorum ejus : Tollamus quinque equos, qui remanserunt in urbe (quia ipsi tantum sunt in universa multitudine Israël, alii enim consumpti sunt), et mittentes, explorare poterimus.
  14. Adduxerunt ergo duos equos, misitque rex in castra Syrorum, dicens : Ite, et videte.
  15. Qui abierunt post eos usque ad Jordanem : ecce autem omnis via plena erat vestibus et vasis, quæ projecerant Syri cum turbarentur : reversique nuntii indicaverunt regi.
  16. Et egressus populus diripuit castra Syriæ : factusque est modius similæ statere uno, et duo modii hordei statere uno, juxta verbum Domini.
  17. Porro rex ducem illum, in cujus manu incumbebat, constituit ad portam : quem conculcavit turba in introitu portæ, et mortuus est, juxta quod locutus fuerat vir Dei, quando descenderat rex ad eum.
  18. Factumque est secundum sermonem viri Dei, quem dixerat regi, quando ait : Duo modii hordei statere uno erunt, et modius similæ statere uno, hoc eodem tempore cras in porta Samariæ :
  19. quando responderat dux ille viro Dei, et dixerat : Etiamsi Dominus fecerit cataractas in cælo, numquid poterit fieri quod loqueris ? Et dixit ei : Videbis oculis tuis, et inde non comedes.
  20. Evenit ergo ei sicut prædictum fuerat, et conculcavit eum populus in porta, et mortuus est.
2 Kings 7 Text (KJV)
  1. Then Elisha said, Hear ye the word of the LORD; Thus saith the LORD, To morrow about this time shall a measure of fine flour be sold for a shekel, and two measures of barley for a shekel, in the gate of Samaria.
  2. Then a lord on whose hand the king leaned answered the man of God, and said, Behold, if the LORD would make windows in heaven, might this thing be? And he said, Behold, thou shalt see it with thine eyes, but shalt not eat thereof.
  3. And there were four leprous men at the entering in of the gate: and they said one to another, Why sit we here until we die?
  4. If we say, We will enter into the city, then the famine is in the city, and we shall die there: and if we sit still here, we die also. Now therefore come, and let us fall unto the host of the Syrians: if they save us alive, we shall live; and if they kill us, we shall but die.
  5. And they rose up in the twilight, to go unto the camp of the Syrians: and when they were come to the uttermost part of the camp of Syria, behold, there was no man there.
  6. For the Lord had made the host of the Syrians to hear a noise of chariots, and a noise of horses, even the noise of a great host: and they said one to another, Lo, the king of Israel hath hired against us the kings of the Hittites, and the kings of the Egyptians, to come upon us.
  7. Wherefore they arose and fled in the twilight, and left their tents, and their horses, and their asses, even the camp as it was, and fled for their life.
  8. And when these lepers came to the uttermost part of the camp, they went into one tent, and did eat and drink, and carried thence silver, and gold, and raiment, and went and hid it; and came again, and entered into another tent, and carried thence also, and went and hid it.
  9. Then they said one to another, We do not well: this day is a day of good tidings, and we hold our peace: if we tarry till the morning light, some mischief will come upon us: now therefore come, that we may go and tell the king's household.
  10. So they came and called unto the porter of the city: and they told them, saying, We came to the camp of the Syrians, and, behold, there was no man there, neither voice of man, but horses tied, and asses tied, and the tents as they were.
  11. And he called the porters; and they told it to the king's house within.
  12. And the king arose in the night, and said unto his servants, I will now shew you what the Syrians have done to us. They know that we be hungry; therefore are they gone out of the camp to hide themselves in the field, saying, When they come out of the city, we shall catch them alive, and get into the city.
  13. And one of his servants answered and said, Let some take, I pray thee, five of the horses that remain, which are left in the city, (behold, they are as all the multitude of Israel that are left in it: behold, I say, they are even as all the multitude of the Israelites that are consumed:) and let us send and see.
  14. They took therefore two chariot horses; and the king sent after the host of the Syrians, saying, Go and see.
  15. And they went after them unto Jordan: and, lo, all the way was full of garments and vessels, which the Syrians had cast away in their haste. And the messengers returned, and told the king.
  16. And the people went out, and spoiled the tents of the Syrians. So a measure of fine flour was sold for a shekel, and two measures of barley for a shekel, according to the word of the LORD.
  17. And the king appointed the lord on whose hand he leaned to have the charge of the gate: and the people trode upon him in the gate, and he died, as the man of God had said, who spake when the king came down to him.
  18. And it came to pass as the man of God had spoken to the king, saying, Two measures of barley for a shekel, and a measure of fine flour for a shekel, shall be to morrow about this time in the gate of Samaria:
  19. And that lord answered the man of God, and said, Now, behold, if the LORD should make windows in heaven, might such a thing be? And he said, Behold, thou shalt see it with thine eyes, but shalt not eat thereof.
  20. And so it fell out unto him: for the people trode upon him in the gate, and he died.
