Asa is reproved for seeking help from the Syrians: his last acts and death.

[1] And in the six and thirtieth year of his kingdom, Baasa the king of Israel came up against Juda, and built a wall about Rama, that no one might safely go out or come in of the kingdom of Asa.
Anno autem trigesimo sexto regni ejus, ascendit Baasa rex Israel in Judam, et muro circumdabat Rama, ut nullus tute posset egredi et ingredi de regno Asa.

[2] Then Asa brought out silver and gold out of the treasures of the house of the Lord, and of the king's treasures, and sent to Benadad king of Syria, who dwelt in Damascus, saying:
Protulit ergo Asa argentum et aurum de thesauris domus Domini, et de thesauris regis, misitque ad Benadad regem Syriae, qui habitabat in Damasco, dicens :

[3] There is a league between me and thee, as there was between my father and thy father, wherefore I have sent thee silver and gold, that thou mayst break thy league with Baasa king of Israel, and make him depart from me.
Foedus inter me et te est, pater quoque meus et pater tuus habuere concordiam : quam ob rem misi tibi argentum et aurum, ut rupto foedere, quod habes cum Baasa rege Israel, facias eum a me recedere.

[4] And then Benadad heard this, he sent the captains of his armies against the cities of Israel: and they took Ahion, and Dan, and Abelmaim, and all the walled cities of Nephtali.
Quo comperto, Benadad misit principes exercituum suorum ad urbes Israel : qui percusserunt Ahion, et Dan, et Abelmaim, et universas urbes Nephthali muratas.

[5] And when Baasa heard of it, he left off the building of Rama, and interrupted his work.
Quod cum audisset Baasa, desiit aedificare Rama, et intermisit opus suum.

[6] Then king Asa took all Juda, and they carried away from Rama the stones, and the timber that Baasa had prepared for the building: and he built with them Gabaa, and Maspha.
Porro Asa rex assumpsit universum Judam, et tulerunt lapides de Rama, et ligna quae aedificationi praeparaverat Baasa, aedificavitque ex eis Gabaa, et Maspha.

[7] At that time Hanani the prophet came to Asa king of Juda, and said to him: Because thou hast had confidence in the king of Syria, and not in the Lord thy God, therefore hath the army of the king of Syria escaped out of thy hand.
In tempore illo venit Hanani propheta ad Asa regem Juda, et dixit ei : Quia habuisti fiduciam in rege Syriae, et non in Domino Deo tuo, idcirco evasit Syriae regis exercitus de manu tua.

[8] Were not the Ethiopians, and the Libyans much more numerous in chariots, and horsemen, and an exceeding great multitude: yet because thou trustedst in the Lord, he delivered them into thy hand?
Nonne Aethiopes et Libyes multo plures erant quadrigis, et equitibus, et multitudine nimia? quos, cum Domino credidisses, tradidit in manu tua.

[9] For the eyes of the Lord behold all the earth, and give strength to those who with a perfect heart trust in him. Wherefore thou hast done foolishly, and for this cause from this time wars shall arise against thee.
Oculi enim Domini contemplantur universam terram, et praebent fortitudinem his, qui corde perfecto credunt in eum. Stulte igitur egisti, et propter hoc ex praesenti tempore adversum te bella consurgent.

[10] And Asa was angry with the seer, and commanded him to be put in prison: for he was greatly enraged because of this thing: and he put to death many of the people at that time.
Iratusque Asa adversus videntem, jussit eum mitti in nervum : valde quippe super hoc fuerat indignatus : et interfecit de populo in tempore illo plurimos.

[11] But the works of Asa the first and last are written in the book of the kings of Juda and Israel.
Opera autem Asa prima et novissima scripta sunt in libro regum Juda et Israel.

[12] And Asa fell sick in the nine and thirtieth year of his reign, of a most violent pain in his feet, and yet in his illness he did not seek the Lord, but rather trusted in the skill of physicians.
Aegrotavit etiam Asa anno trigesimo nono regni sui, dolore pedum vehementissimo, et nec in infirmitate sua quaesivit Dominum, sed magis in medicorum arte confisus est.

[13] And he slept with his fathers: and he died in the one and fortieth year of his reign.
Dormivitque cum patribus suis : et mortuus est anno quadragesimo primo regni sui.

[14] And they buried him in his own sepulchre, which he had made for himself in the city of David: and they laid him on his bed full of spices and odoriferous ointments, which were made by the art of the perfumers, and they burnt them over him with very great pomp.
Et sepelierunt eum in sepulchro suo quod foderat sibi in civitate David : posueruntque eum super lectum suum plenum aromatibus et unguentibus meretriciis, quae erant pigmentariorum arte confecta, et combusserunt super eum ambitione nimia.
