Joram's wicked reign: his punishment and death.

[1] And Josaphat slept with his fathers, and was buried with them in the city of David: and Joram his son reigned in his stead.
Dormivit autem Josaphat cum patribus suis, et sepultus est cum eis in civitate David : regnavitque Joram filius ejus pro eo.

[2] And he had brethren the sons of Josaphat, Azarias, and Jahiel, and Zacharias, and Azaria, and Michael, and Saphatias, all these were the sons of Josaphat king of Juda.
Qui habuit fratres filios Josaphat, Azariam, et Jahiel, et Zachariam, et Azariam, et Michael, et Saphatiam : omnes hi, filii Josaphat regis Juda.

[3] And their father gave them great gifts of silver, and of gold, and pensions, with strong cities in Juda: but the kingdom he gave to Joram, because he was the eldest.
Deditque eis pater suus multa munera argenti, et auri, et pensitationes, cum civitatibus munitissimis in Juda : regnum autem tradidit Joram, eo quod esset primogenitus.

[4] So Joram rose up over the kingdom of his father: and when he had established himself, he slew all his brethren with the sword, and some of the princes of Israel.
Surrexit ergo Joram super regnum patris sui : cumque se confirmasset, occidit omnes fratres suos gladio, et quosdam de principibus Israel.

[5] Joram was two and thirty years old when he began to reign: and he reigned eight years in Jerusalem.
Triginta duorum annorum erat Joram cum regnare coepisset : et octo annis regnavit in Jerusalem.

[6] And he walked in the ways of the kings of Israel, as the house of Achab had done: for his wife was a daughter of Achab, and he did evil in the sight of the Lord.
Ambulavitque in viis regum Israel, sicut egerat domus Achab : filia quippe Achab erat uxor ejus : et fecit malum in conspectu Domini.

[7] But the Lord would not destroy the house of David: because of the covenant which he had made with him: and because he had promised to give a lamp to him, and to his sons for ever.
Noluit autem Dominus disperdere domum David propter pactum, quod inierat cum eo : et quia promiserat ut daret ei lucernam, et filiis ejus omni tempore.

[8] In those days Edom revolted, from being subject to Juda, and made themselves a king.
In diebus illis rebellavit Edom, ne esset subditus Judae, et constituit sibi regem.

[9] And Joram went over with his princes, and all his cavalry with him, and rose in the night, and defeated the Edomites who had surrounded him, and all the captains of his cavalry.
Cumque transisset Joram cum principibus suis, et cuncto equitatu, qui erat secum, surrexit nocte, et percussit Edom qui se circumdederat, et omnes duces equitatus ejus.

[10] However Edom revolted, from being under the dominion of Juda unto this day: at that time Lobna also revolted, from being under his hand. For he had forsaken the Lord the God of his fathers:
Attamen rebellavit Edom, ne esset sub ditione Juda usque ad hanc diem : eo tempore et Lobna recessit ne esset sub manu illius. Dereliquerat enim Dominum Deum patrum suorum :

[11] Moreover he built also high places in the cities of Juda, and he made the inhabitants of Jerusalem to commit fornication, and Juda to transgress.
insuper et excelsa fabricatus est in urbibus Juda, et fornicari fecit habitatores Jerusalem, et praevaricari Judam.

[12] And there was a letter brought him from Elias the prophet, in which it was written: Thus saith the Lord the God of David thy father: Because thou hast not walked in the ways of Josaphat thy father nor in the ways of Asa king of Juda,
Allatae sunt autem ei litterae ab Elia propheta, in quibus scriptum erat : Haec dicit Dominus Deus David patris tui : Quoniam non ambulasti in viis Josaphat patris tui, et in viis Asa regis Juda,

[13] But hast walked in the ways of the kings of Israel, and hast made Juda and the inhabitants of Jerusalem to commit fornication, imitating the fornication of the house of Achab, moreover also thou hast killed thy brethren, the house of thy father, better men than thyself,
sed incessisti per iter regum Israel, et fornicari fecisti Judam, et habitatores Jerusalem, imitatus fornicationem domus Achab, insuper et fratres tuos, domum patris tui, meliores te, occidisti :

[14] Behold the Lord will strike thee with a great plague, with all thy people, and thy children, and thy wives, and all thy substance.
ecce Dominus percutiet te plaga magna cum populo tuo, et filiis, et uxoribus tuis, universaque substantia tua.

[15] And thou shalt be sick of a very grievous disease of thy bowels, till thy vital parts come out by little and little every day.
Tu autem aegrotabis pessimo languore uteri tui, donec egrediantur vitalia tua paulatim per singulos dies.

[16] And the Lord stirred up against Joram the spirit of the Philistines, and of the Arabians, who border on the Ethiopians.
Suscitavit ergo Dominus contra Joram spiritum Philisthinorum, et Arabum, qui confines sunt Aethiopibus :

[17] And they came up into the land of Juda, and wasted it, and they carried away all the substance that was found in the king's house, his sons also, and his wives: so that there was no son left him but Joachaz, who was the youngest.
et ascenderunt in terram Juda, et vastaverunt eam, diripueruntue cunctam substantiam, quae inventa est in domo regis, insuper et filios ejus, et uxores : nec remansit ei filius, nisi Joachaz, qui minimus natu erat.

[18] And besides all this the Lord struck him with an incurable disease in his bowels.
Et super haec omnia percussit eum Dominus alvi languore insanabili.

[19] And as day came after day, and time rolled on, two whole years passed: then after being wasted with a long consumption, so as to void his very bowels, his disease ended with his life. And he died of a most wretched illness, and the people did not make a funeral for him according to the manner of burning, as they had done for his ancestors.
Cumque diei succederet dies, et temporum spatia volverentur, duorum annorum expletus est circulus : et sic longa consumptus tabe, ita ut egereret etiam viscera sua, languore pariter, et vita caruit. Mortuusque est in infirmitate pessima, et non fecit ei populus secundum morem combustionis, exequias, sicut fecerat majoribus ejus.

[20] He was two and thirty years old when he began his reign, and he reigned eight years in Jerusalem. And he walked not rightly, and they buried him in the city of David: but not in the sepulchres of the kings.
Triginta duorum annorum fuit, cum regnare coepisset, et octo annis regnavit in Jerusalem. Ambulavitque non recte, et sepelierunt eum in civitate David : verumtamen non in sepulchro regum.
