2 Crônicas - EN/PT

2 Chronicles 1

1 And Solomon, the son of David, made himself strong in his kingdom, and the Lord his God was with him, and made him very great.
1 E Salomão, filho de Davi, se esforçou no seu reino; e o SENHOR, seu Deus, era com ele e o magnificou grandemente.

2 And Solomon sent word to all Israel, to the captains of thousands and of hundreds and to the judges and to every chief in all Israel, heads of their families.
2 E falou Salomão a todo o Israel, aos capitães dos milhares e das centenas, e aos juízes, e a todos os príncipes em todo o Israel, chefes dos pais.

3 Then Solomon, and all the men of Israel with him, went to the high place at Gibeon, because the Tent of meeting of God, which Moses, the servant of the Lord, had made in the waste land, was there.
3 E foram Salomão e toda a congregação com ele ao alto que estava em Gibeão; porque ali estava a tenda da congregação de Deus, que Moisés, servo do SENHOR, tinha feito no deserto.

4 But the ark of God had been moved by David from Kiriath-jearim to the place which he had made ready for it, for he had put up a tent for it at Jerusalem.
4 Mas Davi tinha feito subir a arca de Deus de Quiriate-Jearim ao lugar que Davi lhe tinha preparado; porque lhe tinha armado uma tenda em Jerusalém.

5 And the altar of brass which Bezalel, the son of Uri, the son of Hur, had made, was there before the Tent of the Lord; and Solomon and all the people went to give worship there.
5 Também o altar de cobre que tinha feito Bezalel, filho de Uri, filho de Hur, estava ali diante do tabernáculo do SENHOR; e Salomão e a congregação o visitavam.

6 And Solomon went up there to the brass altar before the Lord at the Tent of meeting, offering on it a thousand burned offerings.
6 E Salomão ofereceu ali sacrifícios perante o SENHOR, sobre o altar de cobre que estava na tenda da congregação, e ofereceu sobre ele mil holocaustos.

7 In that night God came to Solomon in a vision, and said to him, Say what I am to give you.
7 Naquela mesma noite, Deus apareceu a Salomão e disse-lhe: Pede o que quiseres que eu te dê.

8 And Solomon said to God, Great was your mercy to David my father, and you have made me king in his place.
8 E Salomão disse a Deus: Tu usaste de grande beneficência com Davi, meu pai, e a mim me fizeste rei em seu lugar.

9 Now, O Lord God, let your word to David my father come true; for you have made me king over a people like the dust of the earth in number.
9 Agora, pois, ó SENHOR Deus, confirme-se a tua palavra, dada a Davi, meu pai; porque tu me fizeste rei sobre um povo numeroso como o pó da terra.

10 Give me now wisdom and knowledge, so that I may go out and come in before this people: for who is able to be the judge of this great people of yours?
10 Dá-me, pois, agora, sabedoria e conhecimento, para que possa sair e entrar perante este povo; porque quem poderia julgar a este teu tão grande povo?

11 And God said to Solomon, Because this was in your heart, and you did not make request for money, property, or honour, or for the destruction of your haters, or for long life; but you have made request for wisdom and knowledge for yourself, so that you may be the judge of my people over whom I have made you king:
11 Então, Deus disse a Salomão: Porquanto houve isso no teu coração, e não pediste riquezas, fazenda ou honra, nem a morte dos que te aborrecem, nem tampouco pediste muitos dias de vida, mas pediste para ti sabedoria e conhecimento, para poderes julgar a meu povo, sobre o qual te pus rei,

12 Wisdom and knowledge are given to you; and I will give you wealth and honour, such as no king has had before you or ever will have after you.
12 sabedoria e conhecimento te são dados; e te darei riquezas, e fazenda, e honra, qual nenhum rei antes de ti teve, e depois de ti tal não haverá.

13 So Solomon went back from the high place at Gibeon, from before the Tent of meeting, to Jerusalem; and he was king over Israel.
13 Assim, Salomão veio a Jerusalém, do alto que está em Gibeão, de diante da tenda da congregação; e reinou sobre Israel.

14 And Solomon got together war-carriages and horsemen; he had one thousand, four hundred carriages and twelve thousand horsemen, which he kept, some in the carriage-towns and some with the king at Jerusalem.
14 E Salomão ajuntou carros e cavaleiros; e teve mil e quatrocentos carros e doze mil cavaleiros e pô-los nas cidades dos carros e junto ao rei, em Jerusalém.

15 And the king made silver and gold as common as stones in Jerusalem, and cedar like the sycamore-trees of the lowland in number.
15 E fez o rei que houvesse ouro e prata em Jerusalém como pedras, e cedros em tanta abundância como figueiras bravas que há pelas campinas.

16 And Solomon’s horses came out of Egypt; the king’s traders got them from Kue at a price.
16 E os cavalos que tinha Salomão se traziam do Egito; e, quanto ao fio de linho, os mercadores do rei tomavam o fio de linho por um certo preço.

17 A war-carriage might be got from Egypt for six hundred shekels of silver, and a horse for a hundred and fifty: they got them at the same rate for all the kings of the Hittites and the kings of Aram.
17 E faziam subir e sair do Egito cada carro por seiscentos siclos de prata, e cada cavalo, por cento e cinqüenta; e assim, por meio deles, tiravam cavalos para todos os reis dos heteus e para os reis da Síria.

2 Chronicles 2

1 Now it was Solomon’s purpose to put up a house for the name of the Lord and a house for himself as king.
1 E determinou Salomão edificar uma casa ao nome do SENHOR, como também uma casa para o seu reino.

2 And Solomon had seventy thousand men numbered for transport, and eighty thousand for cutting stone in the mountains, and three thousand, six hundred as overseers.
2 E contou Salomão setenta mil homens de carga, e oitenta mil que cortassem na montanha, e três mil e seiscentos inspetores sobre eles.

3 And Solomon sent to Huram, king of Tyre, saying, As you did for my father David, sending him cedar-trees for the building of his house,
3 E Salomão enviou a Hirão, rei de Tiro, dizendo: Como procedeste com Davi, meu pai, e lhe mandaste cedros, para edificar uma casa em que morasse, assim também procede comigo.

4 See! I am building a house for the name of the Lord my God, to be made holy to him, where perfumes of sweet spices will be burned before him, and the holy bread will be placed at all times, and burned offerings will be offered morning and evening, on the Sabbaths and at the new moons, and on the regular feasts of the Lord our God. This is a law for ever to Israel.
4 Eis que estou para edificar uma casa ao nome do SENHOR, meu Deus, para lhe consagrar, para queimar perante ele incenso aromático, e para o pão contínuo da proposição, e para os holocaustos da manhã e da tarde, nos sábados, e nas luas novas, e nas festividades do SENHOR, nosso Deus; o que é perpetuamente a obrigação de Israel.

5 And the house which I am building is to be great, for our God is greater than all gods.
5 E a casa que estou para edificar há de ser grande, porque o nosso Deus é maior do que todos os deuses.

6 But who may have strength enough to make a house for him, seeing that the heaven and the heaven of heavens are not wide enough to be his resting-place? who am I then to make a house for him? But I am building it only for the burning of perfume before him.
6 Porém quem teria força para lhe edificar uma casa, visto que os céus e até os céus dos céus o não podem conter? E quem sou eu, que lhe edificasse casa, salvo para queimar incenso perante ele?

7 So now send me an expert worker in gold and silver and brass and iron? in purple and red and blue, and in the cutting of all sorts of ornament, to be with the expert workmen who are here in Judah and in Jerusalem, whom my father David got together.
7 Manda-me, pois, agora um homem sábio para trabalhar em ouro, e em prata, e em bronze, e em ferro, e em púrpura, e em carmesim, e em azul; e que saiba lavrar ao buril, juntamente com os sábios que estão comigo em Judá e em Jerusalém, os quais Davi, meu pai, preparou.

8 And send me cedar-trees, cypress-trees and sandal-wood from Lebanon, for, to my knowledge, your servants are expert wood-cutters in Lebanon; and my servants will be with yours,
8 Manda-me também madeira de cedros, faias, e algumins do Líbano; porque bem sei eu que os teus servos sabem cortar madeira no Líbano; e eis que os meus servos estarão com os teus servos,

9 To get trees for me in great numbers, for the house which I am building is to be great and a wonder.
9 e isso para prepararem muita madeira; porque a casa que estou para fazer há de ser grande e maravilhosa.

10 And I will give as food to your servants, the wood-cutters, twenty thousand measures of grain, and twenty thousand measures of barley and twenty thousand measures of wine and twenty thousand measures of oil.
10 E eis que a teus servos, os cortadores, que cortarem a madeira, darei vinte mil coros de trigo malhado, e vinte mil coros de cevada, e vinte mil batos de vinho, e vinte mil batos de azeite.

11 Then Huram, king of Tyre, sent Solomon an answer in writing, saying, Because of his love for his people the Lord has made you king over them.
11 E Hirão, rei de Tiro, respondeu por escrito e enviou a Salomão, dizendo: Porquanto o SENHOR ama o seu povo, te pôs sobre ele rei.

12 And Huram said, Praise be to the Lord, the God of Israel, maker of heaven and earth, who has given to David the king a wise son, full of wisdom and good sense, to be the builder of a house for the Lord and a house for himself as king.
12 Disse mais Hirão: Bendito seja o SENHOR, Deus de Israel, que fez os céus e a terra; que deu ao rei Davi um filho sábio, de grande prudência e entendimento, que edifique casa ao SENHOR e para o seu reino.

13 And now I am sending you a wise and expert man, Huram who is as my father,
13 Agora, pois, envio um homem sábio de grande entendimento, a saber, Hirão-Abi,

14 The son of a woman of the daughters of Dan, whose father was a man of Tyre, an expert worker in gold and silver and brass and iron, in stone and wood, in purple and blue and fair linen and red, trained in the cutting of every sort of ornament and the invention of every sort of design; let him be given a place among your expert workmen and those of my lord, your father David.
14 filho de uma mulher das filhas de Dã e cujo pai foi homem de Tiro; este sabe lavrar em ouro, e em prata, em bronze, em ferro, em pedras, e em madeira, e em púrpura, e em pano azul, e em linho fino, e em carmesim; e é hábil para toda obra de buril e para todas as engenhosas invenções, qualquer coisa que se lhe propuser, juntamente com os teus sábios e os sábios de Davi, meu senhor, teu pai.

15 So now let my lord send to his servants the grain and the oil and the wine as my lord has said;
15 Agora, pois, que meu senhor mande para os seus servos o trigo, e a cevada, e o azeite, e o vinho de que falou.

16 And we will have wood cut from Lebanon, as much as you have need of, and will send it to you on flat boats by sea to Joppa, and from there you may take it up to Jerusalem.
16 E nós cortaremos tanta madeira no Líbano quanta houveres mister e ta traremos em jangadas pelo mar a Jope, e tu a farás subir a Jerusalém.

17 Then Solomon took the number of all the men from strange lands who were living in Israel, as his father David had done; there were a hundred and fifty-three thousand, six hundred.
17 E Salomão contou todos os homens estrangeiros que havia na terra de Israel, conforme a conta com que os contara Davi, seu pai; e acharam-se cento e cinqüenta e três mil e seiscentos.

18 Seventy thousand he put to the work of transport, eighty thousand to cutting stone in the mountains, and three thousand, six hundred as overseers to put the people to work.
18 E fez deles setenta mil carreteiros e oitenta mil cortadores na montanha, como também três mil e seiscentos inspetores, para fazerem trabalhar o povo.

2 Chronicles 3

1 Then Solomon made a start at building the house of the Lord on Mount Moriah in Jerusalem, where the Lord had been seen by his father David, in the place which David had made ready in the grain-floor of Ornan the Jebusite.
1 E começou Salomão a edificar a Casa do SENHOR em Jerusalém, no monte Moriá, onde o SENHOR se tinha mostrado a Davi, seu pai, no lugar que Davi tinha preparado na eira de Ornã, o jebuseu.

2 The building was started in the second month in the fourth year of his rule.
2 E começou a edificar no segundo mês, no dia segundo, no ano quarto do seu reinado.

3 And Solomon put the base of the house of God in position; by the older measure it was sixty cubits long and twenty cubits wide.
3 E estes foram os fundamentos que Salomão pôs para edificar a Casa de Deus: o comprimento em côvados, segundo a medida primeira, de sessenta côvados, e a largura, de vinte côvados.

4 And the covered way in front of the house was twenty cubits long, as wide as the house, and a hundred and twenty cubits high, all plated inside with the best gold.
4 E o alpendre que estava na frente, de comprimento, segundo a largura da casa, era de vinte côvados, e a altura, de cento e vinte, o que, dentro, cobriu com ouro puro.

5 And the greater house was roofed with cypress-wood, plated with the best gold and ornamented with designs of palm-trees and chains.
5 E a casa grande forrou com madeira de faia, e, então, a cobriu com ouro fino, e fez sobre ela palmas e cadeias.

6 And the house was made beautiful with stones of great value, and the gold was gold of Parvaim.
6 Também a casa adornou de pedras preciosas para ornamento; e o ouro era ouro de Parvaim.

7 All the house was plated with gold, the supports, the steps, the walls and the doors; and the walls were ornamented with designs of winged ones.
7 Também na casa cobriu as traves, e os umbrais, e as suas paredes, e as suas portas, com ouro; e lavrou querubins nas paredes.

8 And he made the most holy place; it was twenty cubits long, and twenty cubits wide, like the greater house, and was plated all over with the best gold; six hundred talents were used for it.
8 Fez mais a Casa da Santidade das Santidades, cujo comprimento, segundo a largura da casa, era de vinte côvados, e a sua largura, de vinte côvados; e cobriu-a de ouro fino, do peso de seiscentos talentos.

9 And fifty shekels weight of gold was used for the nails. He had all the higher rooms plated with gold.
9 O peso dos pregos era de cinqüenta siclos de ouro; e cobriu de ouro os cenáculos.

10 And in the most holy place he made images of two winged beings, covering them with gold.
10 Também fez na Casa da Santidade das Santidades dois querubins na forma de andantes e cobriu-os de ouro.

11 Their outstretched wings were twenty cubits across; one wing, five cubits long, touching the wall of the house, and the other, of the same size, meeting the wing of the other winged one.
11 E, quanto às asas dos querubins, o seu comprimento era de vinte côvados; a asa de um deles, de cinco côvados, tocava na parede da casa; e a outra asa, de cinco côvados, tocava na asa do outro querubim.

12 And in the same way, the wings of the other, five cubits long, were stretched out, one touching the wall and the other meeting the wing of the first winged one.
12 Também a asa do outro querubim era de cinco côvados e tocava na parede da casa; era também a outra asa de cinco côvados e estava pegada à asa do outro querubim.

13 Their outstretched wings were twenty cubits across; they were placed upright on their feet, facing the inner part of the house.
13 E as asas desses querubins se estendiam vinte côvados; e estavam postos em pé, e os seus rostos, virados para a casa.

14 And he made the veil of blue and purple and red, of the best linen, worked with winged ones.
14 Também fez o véu de pano azul, e púrpura, e carmesim, e linho fino; e pôs sobre ele querubins.

15 And in front of the house he made two pillars, thirty-five cubits high, with crowns on the tops of them, five cubits high.
15 Fez também diante da casa duas colunas de trinta e cinco côvados de altura; e o capitel, que estava sobre cada uma, era de cinco côvados.

16 And he made chains, like neck ornaments, and put them on the tops of the pillars, and a hundred apples on the chains.
16 Também fez as cadeias, como no oráculo, e as pôs sobre as cabeças das colunas; fez também cem romãs, as quais pôs entre as cadeias.

17 He put up the pillars in front of the Temple, one on the right side and one on the left, naming the one on the right Jachin and that on the left Boaz.
17 E levantou as colunas diante do templo, uma à direita, e outra à esquerda; e chamou o nome da que estava à direita Jaquim, e o nome da que estava à esquerda, Boaz.

2 Chronicles 4

1 Then he made a brass altar, twenty cubits long, twenty cubits wide and ten cubits high.
1 Também fez um altar de metal de vinte côvados de comprimento, e de vinte côvados de largura, e dez côvados de altura.

2 And he made the great water-vessel of metal, round in form, measuring ten cubits across from edge to edge; it was five cubits high and thirty cubits round.
2 Fez também o mar de fundição, de dez côvados de uma borda até à outra, redondo, e de cinco côvados de alto; cingia-o em roda um cordão de trinta côvados.

3 And under it was a design of flowers all round it, ten to a cubit, circling the water-vessel in two lines; they were made from liquid metal at the same time as the water-vessel.
3 E por baixo dele havia figuras de bois, que ao redor o cingiam, e por dez côvados cercavam aquele mar ao redor; e tinha duas carreiras de bois, fundidos na sua fundição.

4 It was supported on twelve oxen, three facing to the north, three to the west, three to the south, and three to the east, the water-vessel resting on top of them; their back parts were all turned to the middle of it.
4 E estava sobre doze bois; três que olhavam para o norte, e três que olhavam para o ocidente, e três que olhavam para o sul, e três que olhavam para o oriente; e o mar estava posto sobre eles, e as suas partes posteriores estavam para a banda de dentro.

5 It was as thick as a man’s open hand, and the edge of it was curved like the edge of a cup, like a lily flower; it would take three thousand baths.
5 E tinha um palmo de grossura, e a sua borda foi feita como a borda de um copo ou como uma flor-de-lis, da capacidade de três mil batos.

6 And he made ten washing-vessels, putting five on the right side and five on the left; such things as were used in making the burned offering were washed in them; but the great water-vessel was to be used by the priests for washing themselves.
6 Também fez dez pias e pôs cinco à direita e cinco à esquerda, para lavarem nelas; o que pertencia ao holocausto o lavavam nelas; porém o mar era para que os sacerdotes se lavassem nele.

7 And he made the ten gold supports for the lights, as directions had been given for them, and he put them in the Temple, five on the right side and five on the left.
7 Fez também dez castiçais de ouro, segundo a sua forma, e pô-los no templo, cinco à direita, e cinco à esquerda.

8 He made ten tables, and put them in the Temple, five on the right side and five on the left. And he made a hundred gold basins.
8 Também fez dez mesas e pô-las no templo, cinco à direita, e cinco à esquerda; também fez cem bacias de ouro.

9 Then he made the open space for the priests, and the great open space and its doors, plating the doors with brass.
9 Fez mais o pátio dos sacerdotes e o pátio grande, como também as portadas para o pátio, e as suas portas cobriu de cobre.

10 He put the great water-vessel on the right side of the house to the east, facing south.
10 E o mar pôs ao lado direito, para a banda do oriente, para o sudeste.

11 And Huram made all the pots and the spades and the basins. So he came to the end of all the work he did for King Solomon in the house of God:
11 Também Hirão fez as caldeiras, e as pás, e as bacias; assim, acabou Hirão de fazer a obra que fazia para o rei Salomão, na Casa de Deus:

12 The two pillars, and the two crowns on the tops of the pillars, and the network covering the two cups of the crowns on the tops of the pillars;
12 as duas colunas, e os globos, e os dois capitéis sobre as cabeças das colunas, e as duas redes, para cobrirem os dois globos dos capitéis que estavam sobre a cabeça das colunas;

13 And the four hundred apples for the network, two lines of apples for the network covering the two cups of the crowns on the pillars.
13 e as quatrocentas romãs para as duas redes: duas carreiras de romãs para cada rede, para cobrirem os dois globos dos capitéis que estavam em cima das colunas.

14 And he made the ten bases and the ten washing-vessels which were on the bases;
14 Também fez as bases e as pias pôs sobre as bases;

15 The great water-vessel with the twelve oxen under it.
15 o mar e os doze bois, debaixo dele.

16 All the pots and the spades and the meat-hooks and their vessels, which Huram, who was as his father, made for King Solomon for the house of the Lord, were of polished brass.
16 Semelhantemente os potes, e as pás, e os garfos, e todos os seus utensílios fez Hirão-Abi ao rei Salomão, para a Casa do SENHOR, de cobre purificado.

17 The king made them of liquid metal in the lowland of Jordan, in the soft earth between Succoth and Zeredah.
17 Na campina do Jordão, os fundiu o rei na terra argilosa, entre Sucote e Zereda.

18 So Solomon made all these vessels, a very great store of them, and the weight of the brass used was not measured.
18 E fez Salomão todos esses objetos em grande abundância, porque o peso do cobre se não esquadrinhava.

19 And Solomon made all the vessels used in the house of God, the gold altar and the tables on which the holy bread was placed,
19 Fez também Salomão todos os utensílios que eram para a Casa de Deus: o altar de ouro e as mesas, sobre as quais estavam os pães da proposição;

20 And the supports for the lights with their lights, to be burning in the regular way in front of the inmost room, of the best gold;
20 e os castiçais com as suas lâmpadas de ouro finíssimo, para as acenderem segundo o costume, perante o oráculo.

21 The flowers and the vessels for the lights and the instruments used for them, were all of gold; it was the best gold.
21 E as flores, e as lâmpadas, e os espevitadores eram de ouro, do mais perfeito ouro;

22 The scissors and the basins and the spoons and the fire-trays, of the best gold; and the inner doors of the house, opening into the most holy place, and the doors of the Temple, were all of gold.
22 como também os garfos, e as bacias, e as taças, e os incensários, de ouro finíssimo; quanto à entrada da casa, as suas portas de dentro da Santidade das Santidades e as portas da casa do templo eram de ouro.

2 Chronicles 5

1 So all the work which Solomon did for the house of the Lord was complete. And Solomon took the holy things which David his father had given, the silver and the gold and all the vessels, and put them in the store-houses of the house of God.
1 Assim, se acabou toda a obra que Salomão fez para a Casa do SENHOR; então, trouxe Salomão as coisas consagradas de Davi, seu pai; a prata, e o ouro, e todos os utensílios, e pô-los entre os tesouros da Casa de Deus.

2 Then Solomon sent for all the responsible men of Israel, all the chiefs of the tribes and the heads of families of the children of Israel, to come to Jerusalem and take the ark of the Lord’s agreement up out of the town of David, which is Zion.
2 Então, Salomão convocou em Jerusalém os anciãos de Israel e todos os chefes das tribos, os príncipes dos pais entre os filhos de Israel, para fazerem subir a arca do concerto do SENHOR, da Cidade de Davi, que é Sião, para o templo.

3 And all the men of Israel came together to the king at the feast in the seventh month.
3 E todos os homens de Israel se congregaram ao rei na festa, que foi no sétimo mês.

4 All the responsible men of Israel came, and the Levites took up the ark.
4 E vieram todos os anciãos de Israel, e os levitas levantaram a arca

5 They took up the ark and the Tent of meeting and all the holy vessels which were in the Tent; all these the priests, the Levites, took up.
5 e a fizeram subir, com a tenda da congregação, com todos os utensílios sagrados que estavam na tenda; os sacerdotes e os levitas é que os fizeram subir.

6 And King Solomon and all the men of Israel who had come together there with him, were before the ark, making offerings of sheep and oxen more than might be numbered.
6 Então, o rei Salomão e toda a congregação de Israel, que se tinha congregado com ele, diante da arca, sacrificaram carneiros e bois, que se não podiam contar, nem numerar, por causa da sua multidão.

7 And the priests took the ark of the Lord’s agreement and put it in its place, in the inner room of the house, in the most holy place, under the wings of the winged ones.
7 Assim, trouxeram os sacerdotes a arca do concerto do SENHOR ao seu lugar, ao oráculo da casa, à Santidade das Santidades, até debaixo das asas dos querubins.

8 For their wings were outstretched over the place where the ark was, covering the ark and its rods.
8 (Porque os querubins estendiam ambas as asas sobre o lugar da arca e os querubins, por cima, cobriam a arca e os seus varais.

9 The rods were so long that their ends were seen from the holy place before the inmost room; but they were not seen from outside; and there they are to this day.
9 Então, os varais sobressaíram, para que as pontas dos varais da arca se vissem perante o oráculo, mas não se vissem de fora; e os varais estão ali até ao dia de hoje.)

10 Nothing was in the ark but the two flat stones which Moses put there at Horeb, where the Lord made an agreement with the children of Israel when they came out of Egypt.
10 Na arca, não havia senão somente as duas tábuas que Moisés tinha posto junto a Horebe, quando o SENHOR fez concerto com os filhos de Israel, saindo eles do Egito.

11 Now when the priests had come out of the holy place, (for all the priests who were present had made themselves holy, not keeping to their divisions;
11 E sucedeu que, saindo os sacerdotes do santuário (porque todos os sacerdotes, que se acharam, se santificaram, sem guardarem as suas turmas),

12 And the Levites who made the music, all of them, Asaph, Heman, Jeduthun, and their sons and brothers, robed in fair linen, were in their places with their brass and corded instruments at the east side of the altar, and with them a hundred and twenty priests blowing horns;)
12 e quando os levitas, cantores de todos eles, isto é, Asafe, Hemã, Jedutum, seus filhos e seus irmãos, vestidos de linho fino, com címbalos, e com alaúdes e com harpas, estavam em pé para o oriente do altar, e com eles até cento e vinte sacerdotes, que tocavam as trombetas,

13 And when the players on horns, and those who made melody in song, with one voice were sounding the praise and glory of the Lord; with loud voices and with wind instruments, and brass and corded instruments of music, praising the Lord and saying, He is good; his mercy is unchanging for ever: then the house was full of the cloud of the glory of the Lord,
13 e quando eles uniformemente tocavam as trombetas e cantavam para fazerem ouvir uma só voz, bendizendo e louvando ao SENHOR, e quando levantavam eles a voz com trombetas, e címbalos, e outros instrumentos músicos, para bendizerem ao SENHOR, porque era bom, porque a sua benignidade durava para sempre, então, a casa se encheu de uma nuvem, a saber, a Casa do SENHOR;

14 So that the priests were not able to keep their places to do their work because of the cloud; for the house of God was full of the glory of the Lord.
14 e não podiam os sacerdotes ter-se em pé, para ministrar, por causa da nuvem, porque a glória do SENHOR encheu a Casa de Deus.

2 Chronicles 6

1 Then Solomon said, O Lord, to the sun you have given the heaven for a living-place, but your living-place was not seen by men,
1 Então, disse Salomão: O SENHOR tem dito que habitaria nas trevas.

2 So I have made for you a living-place, a house in which you may be for ever present.
2 E eu te tenho edificado uma casa para morada e um lugar para a tua eterna habitação.

3 Then, turning his face about, the king gave a blessing to all the men of Israel; and they were all on their feet together.
3 Então, o rei virou o rosto e abençoou a toda a congregação de Israel, e toda a congregação de Israel estava em pé.

4 And he said, Praise be to the Lord, the God of Israel, who himself gave his word to my father David, and with his strong hand has made his word come true, saying,
4 E ele disse: Bendito seja o SENHOR, Deus de Israel, que falou pela sua boca a Davi, meu pai, e, pelas suas mãos, o cumpriu, dizendo:

5 From the day when I took my people out of the land of Egypt, no town in all the tribes of Israel has been marked out by me for the building of a house for the resting-place of my name; and I took no man to be a ruler over my people Israel;
5 Desde o dia em que tirei o meu povo da terra do Egito, não escolhi cidade alguma de todas as tribos de Israel, para edificar nela uma casa em que estivesse o meu nome; nem escolhi homem algum para ser chefe do meu povo de Israel.

6 But now I have made selection of Jerusalem, that my name might be there, and of David, to be over my people Israel.
6 Porém escolhi Jerusalém para que ali estivesse o meu nome; e escolhi Davi, para que tivesse cargo do meu povo de Israel.

7 Now it was in the heart of my father David to put up a house for the name of the Lord, the God of Israel.
7 Também Davi, meu pai, teve no seu coração o edificar uma casa ao nome do SENHOR, Deus de Israel.

8 But the Lord said to David my father, You did well to have in your heart the desire to make a house for my name:
8 Porém o SENHOR disse a Davi, meu pai: Porquanto tiveste no teu coração o edificar uma casa ao meu nome, bem fizeste, de ter isso no teu coração.

9 But you yourself will not be the builder of the house; but your son, the offspring of your body, he it is who will put up a house for my name.
9 Contudo, tu não edificarás a casa; mas teu filho, que há de descender de ti, esse edificará a casa ao meu nome.

10 And the Lord has kept his word; for I have taken my father David’s place on the seat of the kingdom of Israel, as the Lord gave his word; and I have made the house for the name of the Lord the God of Israel.
10 Assim, confirmou o SENHOR a sua palavra que ele falou; porque eu me levantei em lugar de Davi, meu pai, e me assentei sobre o trono de Israel, como o SENHOR disse, e edifiquei a casa ao nome do SENHOR, Deus de Israel.

11 And there I have put the ark, in which is the agreement of the Lord, which he made with the people of Israel.
11 E pus nela a arca em que está o concerto que o SENHOR fez com os filhos de Israel.

12 Then he took his place in front of the altar of the Lord, all the men of Israel being present,
12 E pôs-se em pé perante o altar do SENHOR, defronte de toda a congregação de Israel, e estendeu as mãos.

13 (For Solomon had made a brass stage, five cubits long, five cubits wide and three cubits high, and had put it in the middle of the open space; on this he took his place and went down on his knees before all the meeting of Israel, stretching out his hands to heaven.)
13 Porque Salomão tinha feito uma base de metal, de cinco côvados de comprimento, e de cinco côvados de largura, e de três côvados de altura, e a tinha posto no meio do pátio; e pôs-se nela em pé, e ajoelhou-se em presença de toda a congregação de Israel, e estendeu as mãos para o céu,

14 And he said, O Lord, the God of Israel, there is no God like you in heaven or on earth; keeping faith and mercy unchanging for your servants, while they go in your ways with all their hearts;
14 e disse: Ó SENHOR, Deus de Israel, não há Deus semelhante a ti, nem nos céus nem na terra, como tu, que guardas o concerto e a beneficência aos teus servos que caminham perante ti de todo o seu coração;

15 For you have kept the word which you gave to your servant David, my father; with your mouth you said it and with your hand you have made it come true this day.
15 que guardaste ao teu servo Davi, meu pai, o que lhe prometeste; porque tu, pela tua boca, o disseste e, pela tua mão, o cumpriste, como se vê neste dia.

16 So now, O Lord, the God of Israel, let your word to your servant David, my father, come true, when you said, You will never be without a man to take his place before me on the seat of the kingdom of Israel; if only your children give attention to their ways, walking in my law, as you have done before me.
16 Agora, pois, SENHOR, Deus de Israel, faze a teu servo Davi, meu pai, o que prometeste, dizendo: Nunca faltará de ti varão de diante de mim, que se assente sobre o trono de Israel; tão-somente que teus filhos guardem seu caminho, andando na minha lei, como tu andaste diante de mim.

17 So now, O Lord, the God of Israel, make your word come true which you said to your servant David.
17 E, agora, SENHOR, Deus de Israel, verifique-se a tua palavra que disseste ao teu servo, a Davi.

18 But is it truly possible that God may be housed with men on earth? see, heaven and the heaven of heavens are not wide enough to be your resting-place: how much less this house which I have made:
18 Mas verdadeiramente habitará Deus com os homens na terra? Eis que o céu e o céu dos céus não te podem conter, quanto menos esta casa que tenho edificado?

19 Still, let your heart be turned to the prayer of your servant and to his prayer for grace, O Lord my God, and give ear to the cry and the prayer which your servant makes before you;
19 Atende, pois, à oração do teu servo e à sua súplica, ó SENHOR, meu Deus, para ouvires o clamor e a oração que o teu servo faz perante ti.

20 That your eyes may be open to this house day and night, to this place of which you have said that you would put your name there; to give ear to the prayer which your servant may make, turning to this place.
20 Que os teus olhos estejam dia e noite abertos sobre este lugar, de que disseste que ali porias o teu nome, para ouvires a oração que o teu servo fizer neste lugar.

21 And give ear to the prayers of your servant and of your people Israel, when they make their prayers, turning to this place; give ear from heaven your living-place; and hearing have mercy.
21 Ouve, pois, as súplicas do teu servo, e do teu povo de Israel, que fizerem neste lugar; e ouve tu do lugar da tua habitação, desde os céus; ouve, pois, e perdoa.

22 If a man does wrong to his neighbour and has to take an oath, and comes before your altar to take his oath in this house:
22 Quando alguém pecar contra o seu próximo e lhe impuser juramento de maldição, para se amaldiçoar a si mesmo, e o juramento de maldição vier perante o teu altar, nesta casa,

23 Then let your ear be open in heaven, and be the judge of your servants, giving punishment to the wrongdoer, so that his sin may come on his head; and, by your decision, keeping from evil him who has done no wrong.
23 ouve tu, então, desde os céus, e age, e julga a teus servos, pagando ao ímpio, lançando o seu proceder sobre a sua cabeça e justificando o justo, dando-lhe segundo a sua justiça.

24 And if your people Israel are overcome in war, because of their sin against you; if they are turned to you again, honouring your name, making prayers and requesting your grace in this house:
24 Quando também o teu povo de Israel for ferido diante do inimigo, por ter pecado contra ti, e eles se converterem, e confessarem o teu nome, e orarem, e suplicarem perante ti nesta casa,

25 Then give ear from heaven, and let the sin of your people Israel have forgiveness, and take them back again to the land which you gave to them and to their fathers.
25 então, ouve tu desde os céus, e perdoa os pecados de teu povo de Israel, e faze-os tornar à terra que tens dado a eles e a seus pais.

26 When heaven is shut up and there is no rain, because of their sin against you: if they make prayers with their faces turned to this place, honouring your name and turning away from their sin when you send trouble on them:
26 Quando os céus se cerrarem, e não houver chuva, por terem pecado contra ti, e orarem neste lugar, e confessarem teu nome, e se converterem dos seus pecados, quando tu os afligires,

27 Then give ear from heaven, so that the sin of your servants and the sin of your people Israel may have forgiveness, when you make clear to them the good way in which they are to go; and send rain on your land which you have given to your people for their heritage.
27 então, ouve tu desde os céus, e perdoa o pecado de teus servos e do teu povo de Israel, ensinando-lhes o bom caminho, em que andem, e dá chuva sobre a tua terra, que deste ao teu povo em herança.

28 If there is no food in the land, if there is disease, if the fruits of the earth are damaged by heat or water, locust or worm; if their towns are shut in by their attackers: whatever trouble or whatever disease there may be:
28 Havendo fome na terra, havendo peste, havendo queimadura dos trigos, ou ferrugem, gafanhotos, ou lagarta, cercando-a algum dos seus inimigos nas terras das suas portas, ou quando houver qualquer praga, ou qualquer enfermidade,

29 Whatever prayer or request for your grace is made by any man, or by all your people Israel, whatever his trouble may be, whose hands are stretched out to this house:
29 toda oração, e toda súplica que qualquer homem fizer ou todo o teu povo de Israel, conhecendo cada um a sua praga e a sua dor e estendendo as suas mãos para esta casa,

30 Then give ear from heaven your living-place, answering with forgiveness, and give to every man, whose secret heart is open to you, the reward of all his ways; (for you, and you only, have knowledge of the hearts of the children of men;)
30 então, ouve tu desde os céus, do assento da tua habitação, e perdoa, e dá a cada um conforme todos os seus caminhos, segundo conheces o seu coração (pois só tu conheces o coração dos filhos dos homens),

31 So that they may give you worship, walking in your ways, as long as they are living in the land which you gave to our fathers.
31 a fim de que te temam, para andarem nos teus caminhos, todos os dias que viverem na terra que deste a nossos pais.

32 And as for the man from a strange land, who is not of your people Israel but comes from a far country because of the glory of your name and your strong hand and your outstretched arm; when he comes to make his prayer, turning to this house:
32 Assim também ao estrangeiro que não for do teu povo de Israel, mas vier de terras remotas por amor do teu grande nome, e da tua poderosa mão, e do teu braço estendido, vindo ele e orando nesta casa,

33 Then give ear from heaven your living-place, and give him his desire, whatever it may be; so that all the peoples of the earth may have knowledge of your name, worshipping you as do your people Israel, and may see that this house which I have made is truly named by your name.
33 então, ouve tu desde os céus, do assento da tua habitação, e faze conforme tudo o que o estrangeiro te suplicar, a fim de que todos os povos da terra conheçam o teu nome e te temam, como o teu povo de Israel, e a fim de saberem que pelo teu nome é chamada esta casa que edifiquei.

34 If your people go out to war against their attackers, by whatever way you may send them, if they make their prayers to you turning their faces to this town of yours and to this house which I have put up for your name:
34 Quando o teu povo sair à guerra contra os seus inimigos, pelo caminho que os enviares, e orarem a ti para a banda desta cidade que escolheste, e desta casa que edifiquei ao teu nome,

35 Then give ear from heaven to their prayer and their cry for grace, and see right done to them.
35 ouve, então, desde os céus a sua oração e a sua súplica e executa o seu direito.

36 If they do wrong against you, (for no man is without sin,) and you are angry with them, and give them up into the power of those who are fighting against them, so that they take them away prisoners to a land far off or near;
36 Quando pecarem contra ti (pois não há homem que não peque), e tu te indignares contra eles e os entregares diante do inimigo, para que os que os cativarem os levem em cativeiro para alguma terra, remota ou vizinha;

37 And if they take thought, in the land where they are prisoners, turning again to you, crying out in prayer to you in that land, and saying, We are sinners, we have done wrong, we have done evil;
37 e, na terra para onde forem levados em cativeiro, tornarem a si, e se converterem, e, na terra do seu cativeiro, a ti suplicarem, dizendo: Pecamos, e perversamente fizemos, e impiamente procedemos,

38 If with all their heart and soul they are turned again to you, in the land where they are prisoners, the land where they have been taken, and make their prayers, turning their eyes to their land which you gave to their fathers, and to the town which you took for yourself, and the house which I have made for your name:
38 e se converterem a ti com todo o seu coração e com toda a sua alma, na terra do seu cativeiro, a que os levaram presos, e orarem para a banda da sua terra que deste a seus pais, e desta cidade que escolheste e desta casa que edifiquei ao teu nome,

39 Then give ear from heaven your living-place to their prayer and their cry, and see right done to them, answering with forgiveness your people who have done wrong against you.
39 ouve, então, desde os céus, do assento da tua habitação, a sua oração e as suas súplicas, e executa o seu direito, e perdoa ao teu povo que houver pecado contra ti.

40 Now, O my God, may your eyes be open and your ears awake to the prayers made in this place.
40 Agora, pois, ó meu Deus, estejam os teus olhos abertos, e os teus ouvidos atentos à oração deste lugar.

41 Up! now, O Lord God, come back to your resting-place, you and the ark of your strength: let your priests, O Lord God, be clothed with salvation, and let your saints be glad in what is good.
41 Levanta-te, pois, agora, SENHOR Deus, e entra para o teu repouso, tu e a arca da tua fortaleza; e os teus sacerdotes, ó SENHOR Deus, sejam vestidos de salvação, e os teus santos se alegrem do bem.

42 O Lord God, let him whom you have taken for yourself never be given up by you: keep in mind your mercies to David your servant.
42 Ah! SENHOR Deus, não faças virar o rosto do teu ungido; lembra-te das misericórdias de Davi, teu servo.

2 Chronicles 7

1 Now when Solomon’s prayers were ended, fire came down from heaven, burning up all the offerings; and the house was full of the glory of the Lord.
1 E, acabando Salomão de orar, desceu fogo do céu e consumiu o holocausto e os sacrifícios; e a glória do SENHOR encheu a casa.

2 And the priests were not able to go into the house of the Lord, for the Lord’s house was full of the glory of the Lord.
2 E os sacerdotes não podiam entrar na Casa do SENHOR, porque a glória do SENHOR tinha enchido a Casa do SENHOR.

3 And all the children of Israel were looking on when the fire came down, and the glory of the Lord was on the house; and they went down on their knees, with their faces to the earth, worshipping and praising the Lord, and saying, He is good; for his mercy is unchanging for ever.
3 E todos os filhos de Israel, vendo descer o fogo e a glória do SENHOR sobre a casa, encurvaram-se com o rosto em terra sobre o pavimento, e adoraram, e louvaram o SENHOR, porque é bom, porque a sua benignidade dura para sempre.

4 Then the king and all the people made offerings before the Lord.
4 E o rei e todo o povo ofereciam sacrifícios perante o SENHOR.

5 King Solomon made an offering of twenty-two thousand oxen, and a hundred and twenty thousand sheep. So the king and all the people kept the feast of the opening of the house of God.
5 E o rei Salomão ofereceu sacrifícios de bois, vinte e dois mil, e de ovelhas, cento e vinte mil; e o rei e todo o povo consagraram a Casa de Deus.

6 And the priests were in their places, and the Levites with their instruments of music for the Lord’s song, which David the king had made for the praise of the Lord whose mercy is unchanging for ever, when David gave praise by their hand; and the priests were sounding horns before them; and all Israel were on their feet.
6 E os sacerdotes, segundo as suas turmas, estavam em pé, como também os levitas com os instrumentos músicos do SENHOR, que o rei Davi tinha feito, para louvarem o SENHOR, porque a sua benignidade dura para sempre, quando Davi o louvava pelo ministério deles; e os sacerdotes tocavam as trombetas defronte deles, e todo o Israel estava em pé.

7 Then Solomon made holy the middle of the open square in front of the house of the Lord, offering the burned offerings there, and the fat of the peace-offerings; for there was not room on the brass altar which Solomon had made for all the burned offerings and the meal offerings and the fat.
7 E Salomão santificou o meio do pátio que estava diante da Casa do SENHOR; porquanto ali tinha ele oferecido os holocaustos e a gordura dos sacrifícios pacíficos; porque no altar de metal, que Salomão tinha feito, não poderia caber o holocausto, e a oferta de manjares, e a gordura.

8 So Solomon kept the feast at that time for seven days, and all Israel with him, a very great meeting, for the people had come together from the way into Hamath and from as far as the river of Egypt.
8 E, assim, naquele tempo, celebrou Salomão a festa sete dias, e todo o Israel com ele, uma muito grande congregação, desde a entrada de Hamate até ao rio do Egito.

9 And on the eighth day they had a holy meeting; the offerings for making the altar holy went on for seven days, and the feast for seven days.
9 E, ao dia oitavo, celebraram o dia da restrição, porque sete dias celebraram a consagração do altar e sete dias, a festa.

10 And on the twenty-third day of the seventh month, he sent the people away to their tents, full of joy and glad in their hearts, because of all the good which the Lord had done to David and to Solomon and to Israel his people.
10 E, no dia vigésimo terceiro do sétimo mês, o rei deixou ir o povo para as suas tendas, alegres e de bom ânimo, pelo bem que o SENHOR tinha feito a Davi, e a Salomão, e a seu povo de Israel.

11 So Solomon came to the end of building the house of the Lord and the king’s house; and everything which it was in his mind to make in the house of the Lord and for himself had been well done.
11 Assim, Salomão acabou a Casa do SENHOR e a casa do rei; e tudo quanto Salomão intentou fazer na Casa do SENHOR e na sua casa, prosperamente o efetuou.

12 Now the Lord came to Solomon in a vision by night, and said to him, I have given ear to your prayer, and have taken this place for myself as a house where offerings are to be made.
12 E o SENHOR apareceu de noite a Salomão e disse-lhe: Ouvi tua oração e escolhi para mim este lugar para casa de sacrifício.

13 If, at my word, heaven is shut up, so that there is no rain, or if I send locusts on the land for its destruction, or if I send disease on my people;
13 Se eu cerrar os céus, e não houver chuva, ou se ordenar aos gafanhotos que consumam a terra, ou se enviar a peste entre o meu povo;

14 If my people, on whom my name is named, make themselves low and come to me in prayer, searching for me and turning from their evil ways; then I will give ear from heaven, overlooking their sin, and will give life again to their land.
14 e se o meu povo, que se chama pelo meu nome, se humilhar, e orar, e buscar a minha face, e se converter dos seus maus caminhos, então, eu ouvirei dos céus, e perdoarei os seus pecados, e sararei a sua terra.

15 Now my eyes will be open and my ears awake to the prayers made in this place.
15 Agora, estarão abertos os meus olhos e atentos os meus ouvidos à oração deste lugar.

16 For I have taken this house for myself and made it holy, so that my name may be there for ever; and my eyes and my heart will be there at all times.
16 Porque, agora, escolhi e santifiquei esta casa, para que o meu nome esteja nela perpetuamente; e nela estarão fixos os meus olhos e o meu coração todos os dias.

17 And as for you, if you will go on your way before me as David your father did, doing whatever I have given you orders to do and keeping my laws and my decisions:
17 Quanto a ti, se andares diante de mim, como andou Davi, teu pai, e fizeres conforme tudo o que te ordenei, e guardares os meus estatutos e os meus juízos,

18 Then I will make strong the seat of your kingdom, as I gave my word to David your father, saying, You will never be without a man to be ruler in Israel.
18 também confirmarei o trono do teu reino, conforme o concerto que fiz com Davi, teu pai, dizendo: Não te faltará varão que domine em Israel.

19 But if you are turned away from me, and do not keep my orders and my laws which I have put before you, but go and make yourselves servants to other gods, giving them worship:
19 Porém, se vós vos desviardes, e deixardes os meus estatutos e os meus mandamentos, que vos tenho proposto, e fordes, e servirdes a outros deuses, e vos prostrardes a eles,

20 Then I will have this people uprooted out of my land which I have given them; and this house, which I have made holy for my name, I will put away from before my eyes, and make it an example and a word of shame among all peoples.
20 então, os arrancarei da minha terra que lhes dei, e lançarei da minha presença esta casa que consagrei ao meu nome, e farei com que seja por provérbio e mote entre todas as gentes.

21 And this house will become a mass of broken walls, and everyone who goes by will be overcome with wonder, and will say, Why has the Lord done so to this land and to this house?
21 E, desta casa, que fora tão exaltada, qualquer que passar por ela se espantará e dirá: Por que fez o SENHOR assim com esta terra e com esta casa?

22 And their answer will be, Because they were turned away from the Lord, the God of their fathers, who took them out of the land of Egypt, and took for themselves other gods and gave them worship and became their servants: that is why he has sent all this evil on them.
22 E dirão: Porquanto deixaram o SENHOR, Deus de seus pais, que os tirou da terra do Egito, e se deram a outros deuses, e se prostraram a eles, e os serviram; por isso, ele trouxe sobre eles todo este mal.

2 Chronicles 8

1 Now at the end of twenty years, in which time Solomon had put up the house of the Lord and a house for himself,
1 E sucedeu, ao cabo de vinte anos, nos quais Salomão edificou a Casa do SENHOR e a sua própria casa,

2 He took in hand the building up of the towns which Huram had given him, causing the children of Israel to make living-places for themselves there.
2 que Salomão edificou as cidades que Hirão lhe tinha dado; e fez habitar nelas os filhos de Israel.

3 And Solomon went to Hamath-zobah and overcame it.
3 Depois, foi Salomão a Hamate-Zoba e a tomou.

4 And he put up the buildings of Tadmor in the waste land, and of all the store-towns in Hamath;
4 Também edificou a Tadmor no deserto e todas as cidades das munições que edificou em Hamate.

5 And of Beth-horon the higher and the lower, walled towns with walls and doorways and locks;
5 Edificou também a alta Bete-Horom e a baixa Bete-Horom, cidades fortes com muros, portas e ferrolhos;

6 And of Baalath, and all the store-towns which Solomon had, and the towns where he kept his war-carriages and his horse men, and everything which it was his pleasure to put up in Jerusalem and in Lebanon and in all the land under his rule.
6 como também a Baalate, e todas as cidades das munições, que Salomão tinha, e todas as cidades dos carros, e as cidades dos cavaleiros, e tudo quanto, conforme o seu desejo, Salomão quis edificar em Jerusalém, e no Líbano, e em toda a terra do seu domínio.

7 As for all the rest of the Hittites and the Amorites and the Perizzites and the Hivites and the Jebusites, who were not of Israel:
7 Quanto a todo o povo que tinha ficado dos heteus, e amorreus, e ferezeus, e heveus, e jebuseus, que não eram de Israel,

8 Their men who were still living in the land, and whom the children of Israel had not put an end to, these Solomon put to forced work, as is done to this day;
8 a seus filhos, que ficaram depois deles na terra, os quais os filhos de Israel não destruíram, Salomão os fez tributários, até ao dia de hoje.

9 But Solomon did not make use of the children of Israel as servants for his work; they were men of war, his chiefs and his captains, and captains of his war-carriages and his horsemen.
9 Porém dos filhos de Israel, de quem Salomão não fez servos para a sua obra (mas eram homens de guerra, chefes dos seus capitães, e chefes dos seus carros, e dos seus cavaleiros),

10 Now these were the chief men in authority whom King Solomon had: two hundred and fifty of them, in authority over the people.
10 estes, pois, eram os chefes dos oficiais que o rei Salomão tinha, duzentos e cinqüenta, que presidiam sobre o povo.

11 Then Solomon made Pharaoh’s daughter come up from the town of David to the house which he had made for her; for he said, I will not have my wife living in the house of David, king of Israel, because those places where the ark of the Lord has come are holy.
11 E Salomão fez subir a filha de Faraó da Cidade de Davi para a casa que lhe tinha edificado; porque disse: Minha mulher não morará na casa de Davi, rei de Israel, porquanto santos são os lugares nos quais entrou a arca do SENHOR.

12 Then Solomon made burned offerings to the Lord on the altar of the Lord which he had put up in front of the covered way,
12 Então, Salomão ofereceu holocaustos ao SENHOR, sobre o altar do SENHOR, que tinha edificado diante do pórtico;

13 Offering every day what had been ordered by Moses, on the Sabbaths and at the new moon and at the regular feasts three times a year, that is at the feast of unleavened bread, the feast of weeks, and the feast of tents.
13 e isso segundo o dever de cada dia, oferecendo segundo o preceito de Moisés, nos sábados, e nas luas novas, a nas solenidades, três vezes no ano: na Festa dos Pães Asmos, e na Festa das Semanas, e na Festa das Tendas.

14 And he gave the divisions of the priests their places for their work, as ordered by his father David, and to the Levites he gave their work of praise and waiting on the priests, to do what was needed day by day; and he gave the door-keepers their places in turn at every door; for so David, the man of God, had given orders.
14 Também, conforme a ordem de Davi, seu pai, ordenou as turmas dos sacerdotes nos seus ministérios, como também as dos levitas acerca dos seus cargos, para louvarem a Deus e ministrarem diante dos sacerdotes, segundo o que estava ordenado para cada dia, e os porteiros pelas suas turmas a cada porta; porque tal era o mandado de Davi, homem de Deus.

15 All the orders given by the king to the priests and Levites, in connection with any business or stores, were done with care.
15 E não se desviaram do mandado do rei aos sacerdotes e levitas, em negócio nenhum, nem acerca dos tesouros.

16 And all the work of Solomon was complete, from the day when he put the base of the Lord’s house in position, till Solomon had come to the end of building the Lord’s house.
16 Assim se preparou toda a obra de Salomão, desde o dia da fundação da Casa do SENHOR, até se acabar; e assim se aperfeiçoou a Casa do SENHOR.

17 Then Solomon went to Ezion-geber and to Eloth by the sea in the land of Edom.
17 Então, foi Salomão a Eziom-Geber e a Elate, à praia do mar, na terra de Edom.

18 And Huram sent him, by his servants, ships and experienced seamen, who went with the servants of Solomon to Ophir and came back with four hundred and fifty talents of gold, which they took to King Solomon.
18 E enviou-lhe Hirão, por mão de seus servos, navios e servos práticos do mar, e foram com os servos de Salomão a Ofir, e tomaram de lá quatrocentos e cinqüenta talentos de ouro, e os trouxeram ao rei Salomão.

2 Chronicles 9

1 Now the queen of Sheba, hearing great things of Solomon, came to Jerusalem to put his wisdom to the test with hard questions; and with her came a very great train, and camels weighted down with spices, and great stores of gold and jewels: and when she came to Solomon she had talk with him of everything in her mind.
1 E, ouvindo a rainha de Sabá a fama de Salomão, veio a Jerusalém experimentar Salomão com enigmas, com uma mui grande comitiva de camelos carregados de especiarias, e ouro em abundância, e pedras preciosas; e veio a Salomão e falou com ele de tudo o que tinha no seu coração.

2 And Solomon gave her answers to all her questions; there was no secret which he did not make clear to her.
2 E Salomão lhe explicou todas as suas palavras, e nenhuma coisa havia oculta que Salomão lhe não declarasse.

3 And when the queen of Sheba had seen the wisdom of Solomon, and the house which he had made,
3 Vendo, pois, a rainha de Sabá a sabedoria de Salomão, e a casa que edificara,

4 And the food at his table, and all his servants seated there, and those who were waiting on him in their places, and their robes, and his wine-servants and their robes, and the burned offerings which he made in the house of the Lord, there was no more spirit in her.
4 e as iguarias da sua mesa, e o assentar dos seus servos, e o estar dos seus criados, e as vestes deles, e os seus copeiros, e as vestes deles, e a sua subida pela qual ele subia à Casa do SENHOR, ficou como fora de si.

5 And she said to the king, The account which was given to me in my country of your acts and your wisdom was true.
5 Então, disse ao rei: Foi verdadeira a palavra que ouvi na minha terra acerca dos teus feitos e da tua sabedoria.

6 But I had no faith in what was said about you, till I came and saw for myself; and truly, word was not given me of half your great wisdom; you are much greater than they said.
6 Porém não cria nas suas palavras, até que vim, e meus olhos o viram; e eis que me não disseram a metade da grandeza da tua sabedoria; sobrepujaste a fama que ouvi.

7 Happy are your wives and happy these your servants whose place is ever before you, hearing your words of wisdom.
7 Bem-aventurados os teus homens, e bem-aventurados estes teus servos, que estão sempre diante de ti e ouvem a tua sabedoria!

8 Praise be to the Lord your God whose pleasure it was to put you on the seat of his kingdom to be king for the Lord your God: because, in his love for Israel, it was the purpose of your God to make them strong for ever, he made you king over them, to be their judge in righteousness.
8 Bendito seja o SENHOR, teu Deus, que se agradou de ti para te pôr como rei sobre o seu trono, pelo SENHOR, teu Deus, porquanto teu Deus ama a Israel, para o estabelecer perpetuamente; e pôs-te como rei sobre eles, para fazeres juízo e justiça.

9 And she gave the king a hundred and twenty talents of gold, and a great store of spices and jewels: never had such spices been seen as the queen of Sheba gave to Solomon.
9 E deu ao rei cento e vinte talentos de ouro, e especiarias em grande abundância, e pedras preciosas; e nunca houve tais especiarias como as que a rainha de Sabá deu ao rei Salomão.

10 And the servants of Huram and the servants of Solomon, in addition to gold from Ophir, came back with sandal-wood and jewels.
10 E também os servos de Hirão e os servos de Salomão, que de Ofir tinham trazido ouro, trouxeram madeira de algumins e pedras preciosas.

11 And with the sandal-wood the king made steps for the house of the Lord and for the king’s house, and instruments of music for the makers of melody; never before had such been seen in the land of Judah.
11 E fez o rei corredores de madeira de algumins, para a Casa do SENHOR e para a casa do rei, como também harpas e alaúdes para os cantores, quais nunca dantes se viram na terra de Judá.

12 And King Solomon gave the queen of Sheba all her desire, whatever she made request for, in addition to what she had taken to the king. So she went back to her country with her servants.
12 E o rei Salomão deu à rainha de Sabá tudo quanto lhe agradou e o que lhe pediu, além do que ela mesma trouxera ao rei. Assim, voltou e foi para sua terra, ela e os seus servos.

13 Now the weight of gold which came to Solomon in one year was six hundred and sixty-six talents;
13 E era o peso do ouro, que vinha em um ano a Salomão, de seiscentos e sessenta e seis talentos de ouro,

14 And in addition to what he got from traders of different sorts, all the kings of Arabia and the rulers of the country gave gold and silver to Solomon.
14 afora o que os negociantes e mercadores traziam; também todos os reis da Arábia e os príncipes da mesma terra traziam a Salomão ouro e prata.

15 And King Solomon made two hundred body-covers of hammered gold, every one having six hundred shekels of gold in it.
15 Também fez Salomão duzentos paveses de ouro batido; para cada pavês mandou pesar seiscentos siclos de ouro batido,

16 And he made three hundred smaller body-covers of hammered gold, using three hundred shekels of gold for every cover, and the king put them in the house of the Woods of Lebanon.
16 como também trezentos escudos de ouro batido; para cada escudo mandou pesar trezentos siclos de ouro; e Salomão os pôs na casa do bosque do Líbano.

17 Then the king made a great ivory seat, plated with the best gold.
17 Fez mais o rei um grande trono de marfim e o cobriu de ouro puro.

18 There were six steps up to it, and a foot-rest of gold fixed to it, and arms on the two sides of the seat, with two lions at the side of the arms.
18 E o trono tinha seis degraus, e um estrado de ouro, pegado ao trono, e encostos de ambas as bandas no lugar do assento; e dois leões estavam junto aos encostos.

19 And twelve lions were placed on one side and on the other side on the six steps: there was nothing like it in any kingdom.
19 E doze leões estavam ali de ambas as bandas, sobre os seis degraus; outro tal se não fez em nenhum reino.

20 All King Solomon’s drinking-vessels were of gold, and all the vessels of the house of the Woods of Lebanon were of the best gold: no one gave a thought to silver in the days of Solomon.
20 Também todos os vasos de beber do rei Salomão eram de ouro, e todos os objetos da casa do bosque do Líbano, de ouro puro; a prata reputava-se por nada nos dias de Salomão.

21 For the king had Tarshish-ships sailing with the servants of Huram: once every three years the Tarshish-ships came back with gold and silver, ivory and monkeys and peacocks.
21 Porque, indo os navios do rei, com os servos de Hirão, a Társis, tornavam os navios de Társis, uma vez em três anos e traziam ouro, e prata, e marfim, e bugios, e pavões.

22 And King Solomon was greater than all the kings of the earth in wealth and in wisdom.
22 Assim, excedeu o rei Salomão a todos os reis da terra, tanto em riquezas como em sabedoria.

23 And all the kings of the earth came to see Solomon and to give ear to his wisdom, which God had put into his heart.
23 E todos os reis da terra procuravam ver o rosto de Salomão, para ouvirem a sua sabedoria que Deus lhe dera no seu coração.

24 And everyone took with him an offering, vessels of silver and vessels of gold, and robes, and coats of metal, and spices, and horses and beasts for transport, regularly year by year.
24 E eles traziam cada um o seu presente, vasos de ouro, e vestes, e armaduras, e especiarias, e cavalos, e mulos; cada coisa de ano em ano.

25 Solomon had four thousand buildings for his horses and his war-carriages, and twelve thousand horsemen whom he kept, some in the carriage-towns and some with the king in Jerusalem.
25 Teve também Salomão quatro mil estrebarias de cavalos e carros e doze mil cavaleiros e pô-los nas cidades dos carros e com o rei, em Jerusalém.

26 And he was ruler over all the kings from the River to the land of the Philistines, as far as the limit of Egypt.
26 E dominava sobre todos os reis, desde o rio até à terra dos filisteus e até ao termo do Egito.

27 The king made silver as common as stones in Jerusalem and cedars like the sycamore-trees of the lowlands in number.
27 Também o rei fez que houvesse prata em Jerusalém como pedras e cedros em tanta abundância como as figueiras bravas que há pelas campinas.

28 They got horses for Solomon from Egypt and from every land.
28 E do Egito e de todas aquelas terras traziam cavalos a Salomão.

29 Now the rest of the acts of Solomon, first and last, are they not recorded in the history of Nathan the prophet, and in the words of Ahijah the prophet of Shiloh, and in the visions of Iddo the seer about Jeroboam, the son of Nebat?
29 Os demais atos, pois, de Salomão, tanto os primeiros como os últimos, porventura, não estão escritos no livro da história de Natã, o profeta, e na profecia de Aías, o silonita, e nas visões de Ido, o vidente, acerca de Jeroboão, filhos de Nebate?

30 Solomon was king over Israel in Jerusalem for forty years.
30 E reinou Salomão em Jerusalém quarenta anos sobre todo o Israel.

31 And Solomon went to rest with his fathers, and was put into the earth in the town of David his father; and Rehoboam his son became king in his place.
31 E dormiu Salomão com seus pais, e o sepultaram na Cidade de Davi, seu pai; e Roboão, seu filho, reinou em seu lugar.

2 Chronicles 10

1 And Rehoboam went to Shechem, where all Israel had come together to make him king.
1 E foi Roboão a Siquém, porque todo o Israel tinha vindo a Siquém para o fazerem rei.

2 And when Jeroboam, the son of Nebat, had news of it, (for he was in Egypt where he had gone in flight from King Solomon,) he came back from Egypt.
2 Sucedeu, pois, que, ouvindo-o Jeroboão, filho de Nebate (o qual estava, então, no Egito, para onde fugira da presença do rei Salomão), voltou Jeroboão do Egito.

3 And they sent for him; and Jeroboam and all Israel came to Rehoboam and said,
3 Porque enviaram a ele e o chamaram; e veio, pois, Jeroboão com todo o Israel; e falaram a Roboão, dizendo:

4 Your father put a hard yoke on us: if you will make the conditions under which your father kept us down less cruel, and the weight of the yoke he put on us less hard, then we will be your servants.
4 Teu pai fez duro o nosso jugo; alivia tu, pois, agora, a dura servidão de teu pai e o pesado jugo que nos tinha imposto, e servir-te-emos.

5 And he said to them, Come to me again after three days. So the people went away.
5 E ele lhes disse: Daqui a três dias, tornai a mim. Então, o povo se foi.

6 Then King Rehoboam took the opinion of the old men who had been with Solomon his father when he was living, and said, In your opinion, what answer am I to give to this people?
6 E teve Roboão conselho com os anciãos que estiveram perante Salomão, seu pai, enquanto viveu, dizendo: Como aconselhais vós que se responda a este povo?

7 And they said to him, If you are kind to this people, pleasing them and saying good words to them, then they will be your servants for ever.
7 E eles lhe falaram, dizendo: Se te fizeres benigno e afável com este povo e lhes falares boas palavras, todos os dias serão teus servos.

8 But he gave no attention to the opinion of the old men, but went to the young men of his generation who were waiting before him.
8 Porém ele deixou o conselho que os anciãos lhe deram; e teve conselho com os jovens que haviam crescido com ele e estavam perante ele.

9 And he said to them, What is your opinion? What answer are we to give to this people who have said to me, Make less the weight of the yoke which your father put on us?
9 E disse-lhes: Que aconselhais vós que respondamos a este povo, que me falou, dizendo: Alivia-nos o jugo que teu pai nos impôs?

10 And the young men of his generation said to him, This is the answer to give to the people who came to you saying, Your father put a hard yoke on us, but will you make it less; say to them, My little finger is thicker than my father’s body;
10 E os jovens que com ele haviam crescido lhe falaram, dizendo: Assim dirás a este povo, que te falou, dizendo: Teu pai agravou o nosso jugo, tu, porém, alivia-nos. Assim, pois, lhe falarás: O meu dedo mínimo é mais grosso do que os lombos de meu pai.

11 If my father put a hard yoke on you, I will make it harder: my father gave you punishment with whips, but I will give you blows with snakes.
11 Assim que, se meu pai vos fez carregar de um jugo pesado, eu ainda acrescentarei sobre o vosso jugo; meu pai vos castigou com açoites, porém eu vos castigarei com escorpiões.

12 So Jeroboam and all the people came to Rehoboam on the third day, as the king had given orders, saying, Come to me again on the third day.
12 Veio, pois, Jeroboão e todo o povo a Roboão, no terceiro dia, como o rei tinha ordenado, dizendo: Tornai a mim ao terceiro dia.

13 And the king gave them a rough answer. So King Rehoboam gave no attention to the suggestion of the old men,
13 E o rei lhes respondeu asperamente, porque o rei Roboão deixou o conselho dos anciãos.

14 But gave them the answer put forward by the young men, saying, My father made your yoke hard, but I will make it harder; my father gave you punishment with whips, but I will give it with snakes.
14 E falou-lhes conforme o conselho dos jovens, dizendo: Meu pai agravou o vosso jugo, porém eu lhes acrescentarei mais; meu pai vos castigou com açoites, porém eu vos castigarei com escorpiões.

15 So the king did not give ear to the people; for this came about by the purpose of God, so that the Lord might give effect to his word which he had said by Ahijah the Shilonite to Jeroboam, the son of Nebat.
15 Assim, o rei não deu ouvidos ao povo, porque esta mudança vinha de Deus, para que o SENHOR confirmasse a sua palavra, a qual falara pelo ministério de Aías, o silonita, a Jeroboão, filho de Nebate.

16 And when all Israel saw that the king would give no attention to them, the people in answer said to the king, What part have we in David? what is our heritage in the son of Jesse? every man to your tents, O Israel; now see to your house, David. So all Israel went to their tents.
16 Vendo, pois, todo o Israel que o rei lhes não dava ouvidos, então, o povo respondeu ao rei, dizendo: Que parte temos nós com Davi? Já não temos herança no filho de Jessé; Israel, cada um às suas tendas! Olha, agora, pela tua casa, ó Davi. Assim, todo o Israel se foi para as suas tendas.

17 But Rehoboam was still king over those of the children of Israel who were living in the towns of Judah.
17 Porém, quanto aos filhos de Israel que habitavam nas cidades de Judá, sobre eles reinou Roboão.

18 Then Rehoboam sent Adoniram, the overseer of the forced work; and he was stoned to death by all Israel. And King Rehoboam went quickly and got into his carriage to go in flight to Jerusalem.
18 Então, o rei Roboão enviou a Adorão, que tinha o cargo dos tributos; porém os filhos de Israel o apedrejaram com pedras, de que morreu; então, o rei Roboão se apressou a subir para o seu carro e fugiu para Jerusalém.

19 So Israel was turned away from the family of David to this day.
19 Assim, se revoltaram os israelitas contra a casa de Davi, até ao dia de hoje.

2 Chronicles 11

1 And Rehoboam came to Jerusalem, and got together the men of Judah and Benjamin, a hundred and eighty thousand of his best fighting-men, to make war against Israel and get the kingdom back for Rehoboam.
1 Vindo, pois, Roboão a Jerusalém, ajuntou da casa de Judá e Benjamim cento e oitenta mil escolhidos, destros na guerra para pelejarem contra Israel e para restituírem o reino a Roboão.

2 But the word of the Lord came to Shemaiah, the man of God, saying,
2 Porém a palavra do SENHOR veio a Semaías, homem de Deus, dizendo:

3 Say to Rehoboam, the son of Solomon, king of Judah, and to all Israel in Judah and Benjamin,
3 Fala a Roboão, filho de Salomão, rei de Judá, e a todo o Israel, em Judá e Benjamim, dizendo:

4 The Lord has said, You are not to go to war against your brothers: let every man go back to his house, for this thing is my purpose. So they gave ear to the words of the Lord and were turned back from fighting against Jeroboam.
4 Assim diz o SENHOR: Não subireis, nem pelejareis contra os vossos irmãos; tornai cada um à sua casa, porque de mim proveio isso. E ouviram as palavras do SENHOR e desistiram de ir contra Jeroboão.

5 Now Rehoboam kept in Jerusalem, building walled towns in Judah.
5 E Roboão habitou em Jerusalém e edificou cidades para fortalezas, em Judá.

6 He was the builder of Beth-lehem and Etam and Tekoa
6 Edificou, pois, a Belém, e a Etã, e a Tecoa,

7 And Beth-zur and Soco and Adullam
7 e a Bete-Zur, e a Socó, e a Adulão,

8 And Gath and Mareshah and Ziph
8 e a Gate, e a Maressa, e a Zife,

9 And Adoraim and Lachish and Azekah
9 e a Adoraim, e a Laquis, e a Azeca,

10 And Zorah and Aijalon and Hebron, walled towns in Judah and Benjamin.
10 e a Zorá, e a Aijalom, e a Hebrom, que estavam em Judá e em Benjamim; cidades fortes.

11 And he made the walled towns strong, and he put captains in them and stores of food, oil, and wine.
11 E fortificou essas fortalezas, e pôs nelas maiorais, e armazéns de víveres, e de azeite, e de vinho.

12 And in every town he put stores of body-covers and spears, and made them very strong. And Judah and Benjamin were his.
12 E pôs em cada cidade paveses e lanças; fortificou-as em grande maneira; e Judá e Benjamim pertenceram-lhe.

13 And the priests and Levites who were in all Israel came together to him from every part of their country.
13 Também os sacerdotes e os levitas que havia em todo o Israel deixaram o seu território, para se ajuntarem a ele.

14 For the Levites gave up their living-places and their property, and came to Judah and Jerusalem; for Jeroboam and his sons had sent them away, not letting them be priests to the Lord;
14 Porque os levitas deixaram os seus arrabaldes e a sua possessão e vieram a Judá e a Jerusalém (porque Jeroboão e seus filhos os lançaram fora, para que não ministrassem ao SENHOR;

15 And he himself made priests for the high places, and for the images of he-goats and oxen which he had made.
15 e ele constituiu para si sacerdotes para os altos, e para os demônios, e para os bezerros que fizera).

16 And after them, from all the tribes of Israel, all those whose hearts were fixed and true to the Lord, the God of Israel, came to Jerusalem to make offerings to the Lord, the God of their fathers.
16 Depois desses, também de todas as tribos de Israel, os que deram o seu coração a buscarem ao SENHOR, Deus de Israel, vieram a Jerusalém, para oferecerem sacrifícios ao SENHOR Deus de seus pais.

17 So they went on increasing the power of the kingdom of Judah, and made Rehoboam, the son of Solomon, strong for three years; and for three years they went in the ways of David and Solomon.
17 Assim, fortaleceram o reino de Judá e corroboraram Roboão, filho de Salomão, por três anos, porque três anos andaram no caminho de Davi e Salomão.

18 And Rehoboam took as his wife Mahalath, the daughter of Jerimoth, the son of David and of Abihail, the daughter of Eliab, the son of Jesse;
18 E Roboão tomou para si, por mulher, a Maalate, filha de Jerimote, filho de Davi, e de Abiail, filha de Eliabe, filho de Jessé.

19 And she had sons by him, Jeush, Shemariah, and Zaham.
19 Ela lhe deu os filhos: Jeús, e Semarias, e Zaão.

20 And after her he took Maacah, the daughter of Absalom; and she had Abijah and Attai and Ziza and Shelomith by him.
20 E, depois dela, tomou a Maaca, filha de Absalão; esta lhe deu os filhos: Abias, e Atai, e Ziza, e Selomite.

21 Maacah, the daughter of Absalom, was dearer to Rehoboam than all his wives and his servant-wives: (for he had eighteen wives and sixty servant-wives, and was the father of twenty-eight sons and sixty daughters.)
21 E amava Roboão mais a Maaca, filha de Absalão, do que a todas as suas outras mulheres e concubinas; porque ele tinha tomado dezoito mulheres e sessenta concubinas; e gerou vinte e oito filhos, e sessenta filhas.

22 Rehoboam made Abijah, the son of Maacah, chief and ruler among his brothers, for it was his purpose to make him king.
22 E Roboão pôs por cabeça a Abias, filho de Maaca, para ser maioral entre os seus irmãos, porque o queria fazer rei.

23 And in his wisdom he had his sons stationed in every walled town through all the lands of Judah and Benjamin; and he gave them a great store of food, and took wives for them.
23 E usou de prudência e, de todos os seus filhos, alguns espalhou por todas as terras de Judá e Benjamim, por todas as cidades fortes; e deu-lhes víveres em abundância e lhes procurou uma multidão de mulheres.

2 Chronicles 12

1 Now when Rehoboam’s position as king had been made certain, and he was strong, he gave up the law of the Lord, and all Israel with him.
1 Sucedeu, pois, que, havendo Roboão confirmado o reino e havendo-se fortalecido, deixou a lei do SENHOR, e, com ele, todo o Israel.

2 Now in the fifth year of King Rehoboam, Shishak, king of Egypt, came up against Jerusalem, because of their sin against the Lord,
2 Pelo que sucedeu, no ano quinto do rei Roboão, que Sisaque, rei do Egito, subiu contra Jerusalém (porque tinham transgredido contra o SENHOR)

3 With twelve hundred war-carriages and sixty thousand horsemen: and the people who came with him out of Egypt were more than might be numbered: Lubim and Sukkiim and Ethiopians.
3 com mil e duzentos carros e com sessenta mil cavaleiros; e era inumerável a gente que vinha com ele do Egito, tanto de líbios como suquitas e etíopes.

4 And he took the walled towns of Judah, and came as far as Jerusalem.
4 E tomou as cidades fortes que Judá tinha e veio a Jerusalém.

5 Now Shemaiah the prophet came to Rehoboam and the chiefs of Judah, who had come together in Jerusalem because of Shishak, and said to them, The Lord has said, Because you have given me up, I have given you up into the hands of Shishak.
5 Então, veio Semaías, o profeta, a Roboão e aos príncipes de Judá que se ajuntaram em Jerusalém por causa de Sisaque e disse-lhes: Assim diz o SENHOR: Vós me deixastes a mim, pelo que eu também vos deixei nas mãos de Sisaque.

6 Then the chiefs of Israel and the king made themselves low and said, The Lord is upright.
6 Então, se humilharam os príncipes de Israel e o rei e disseram: O SENHOR é justo.

7 And the Lord, seeing that they had made themselves low, said to Shemaiah, They have made themselves low: I will not send destruction on them, but in a short time I will give them salvation, and will not let loose my wrath on Jerusalem by the hand of Shishak.
7 Vendo, pois, o SENHOR que se humilhavam, veio a palavra do SENHOR a Semaías, dizendo: Humilharam-se, não os destruirei; antes, em breve, lhes darei lugar de escaparem, para que o meu furor se não derrame sobre Jerusalém, pelas mãos de Sisaque.

8 But still they will become his servants, so that they may see how different my yoke is from the yoke of the kingdoms of the lands.
8 Porém serão seus servos, para que conheçam a diferença da minha servidão e da servidão dos reinos da terra.

9 So Shishak, king of Egypt, came up against Jerusalem and took away all the stored wealth of the house of the Lord and the king’s house: he took everything away, and with the rest the gold body-covers which Solomon had made.
9 Subiu, pois, Sisaque, rei do Egito, contra Jerusalém e tomou os tesouros da Casa do SENHOR e os tesouros da casa do rei; levou tudo e também tomou os escudos de ouro que Salomão fizera.

10 And in their place King Rehoboam had other body-covers made of brass and gave them into the care of the captains of the armed men who were stationed at the door of the king’s house.
10 E fez o rei Roboão em lugar deles escudos de cobre e os entregou nas mãos dos capitães da guarda que guardavam a porta da casa do rei.

11 And whenever the king went into the house of the Lord, the armed men went with him taking the body-covers, and then took them back to their room.
11 E sucedeu que, entrando o rei na Casa do SENHOR, vinham os da guarda, e os traziam, e os tornavam a pôr na câmara da guarda.

12 And when he made himself low, the wrath of the Lord was turned back from him, and complete destruction did not come on him, for there was still some good in Judah.
12 E, humilhando-se ele, a ira do SENHOR se desviou dele, para que o não destruísse de todo, porque ainda em Judá havia boas coisas.

13 So King Rehoboam made himself strong in Jerusalem and was ruling there. Rehoboam was forty-one years old when he became king, and he was ruling for seventeen years in Jerusalem, the town which the Lord had made his out of all the tribes of Israel, to put his name there; and his mother’s name was Naamah, an Ammonite woman.
13 Fortificou-se, pois, o rei Roboão em Jerusalém e reinou. Ora, Roboão era da idade de quarenta e um anos quando começou a reinar; e dezessete anos reinou em Jerusalém, a cidade que o SENHOR escolheu dentre todas as tribos de Israel, para pôr ali o seu nome; e era o nome de sua mãe Naamá, amonita.

14 And he did evil because his heart was not true to the Lord.
14 E fez o que era mau, porquanto não preparou o coração para buscar o SENHOR.

15 Now the acts of Rehoboam, first and last, are they not recorded in the words of Shemaiah the prophet and Iddo the seer? And there were wars between Rehoboam and Jeroboam all their days.
15 Os atos, pois, de Roboão, tanto os primeiros como os últimos, porventura, não estão escritos nos livros da história de Semaías, o profeta, e de Ido, o vidente, conforme a relação das genealogias? E houve guerras entre Roboão e Jeroboão em todos os seus dias.

16 And Rehoboam went to rest with his fathers, and was put into the earth in the town of David; and Abijah his son became king in his place.
16 E Roboão dormiu com seus pais e foi sepultado na Cidade de Davi; e Abias, seu filho, reinou em seu lugar.

2 Chronicles 13

1 In the eighteenth year of King Jeroboam, Abijah became king over Judah.
1 No ano décimo oitavo do rei Jeroboão, reinou Abias sobre Israel.

2 He was king in Jerusalem for three years; his mother’s name was Maacah, the daughter of Uriel of Gibeah. And there was war between Abijah and Jeroboam.
2 Três anos reinou em Jerusalém; e era o nome de sua mãe Micaía, filha de Uriel, da cidade de Gibeá; e houve guerra entre Abias e Jeroboão.

3 And Abijah went out to the fight with an army of men of war, four hundred thousand of his best men; and Jeroboam put his forces in line against him, eight hundred thousand of his best men of war.
3 E Abias ordenou a peleja, com um exército de varões belicosos, de quatrocentos mil homens escolhidos; Jeroboão dispôs contra ele a batalha com oitocentos mil homens escolhidos, todos varões valentes.

4 And Abijah took up his position on Mount Zemaraim, in the hill-country of Ephraim, and said, Give ear to me, O Jeroboam and all Israel:
4 E pôs-se Abias em pé em cima do monte Zemaraim, que está nas montanhas de Efraim, e disse: Ouvi-me, Jeroboão e todo o Israel!

5 Is it not clear to you that the Lord, the God of Israel, gave the rule over Israel to David and to his sons for ever, by an agreement made with salt?
5 Porventura, não vos convém saber que o SENHOR, Deus de Israel, deu para sempre a Davi a soberania sobre Israel, a ele e a seus filhos, por um concerto de sal?

6 But Jeroboam, the son of Nebat, the servant of Solomon, the son of David, took up arms against his lord.
6 Contudo, levantou-se Jeroboão, filho de Nebate, servo de Salomão, filho de Davi, e se rebelou contra seu senhor,

7 And certain foolish and good-for-nothing men were joined with him, and made themselves strong against Rehoboam, the son of Solomon, when he was young and untested and not able to keep them back.
7 e ajuntaram-se a ele homens vadios, filhos de Belial; e fortificaram-se contra Roboão, filho de Salomão; e, sendo Roboão ainda jovem e terno de coração, não podia resistir-lhes.

8 And now it is your purpose to put yourselves against the authority which the Lord has put into the hands of the sons of David, and you are a very great number, and you have with you the gold oxen which Jeroboam made to be your gods.
8 E, agora, cuidais de esforçar-vos contra o reino do SENHOR, que está nas mãos dos filhos de Davi; bem sois vós uma grande multidão e tendes convosco os bezerros de ouro que Jeroboão vos fez para deuses.

9 And after driving out the priests of the Lord, the sons of Aaron and the Levites, have you not made priests for yourselves as the people of other lands do? so that anyone who comes to make himself priest by offering an ox or seven sheep, may be a priest of those who are no gods.
9 Não lançastes vós fora os sacerdotes do SENHOR, os filhos de Arão, e os levitas e não fizestes para vós sacerdotes, como as nações das outras terras? Qualquer que vem a consagrar-se com um novilho e sete carneiros logo se faz sacerdote daqueles que não são deuses.

10 But as for us, the Lord is our God, and we have not been turned away from him; we have priests who do the work of the Lord, even the sons of Aaron and the Levites in their places;
10 Porém, quanto a nós, o SENHOR é o nosso Deus, e nunca o deixamos; e os sacerdotes que ministram ao SENHOR são filhos de Arão, e os levitas se ocupam na sua obra.

11 By whom burned offerings and perfumes are sent up in smoke before the Lord every morning and every evening; and they put out the holy bread on its table and the gold support for the lights with its lights burning every evening; for we keep the orders given to us by the Lord our God, but you have gone away from him.
11 E queimam ao SENHOR cada manhã e cada tarde holocaustos, incenso aromático, dispondo os pães da proposição sobre a mesa pura, e o castiçal de ouro, e as suas lâmpadas para se acenderem cada tarde, porque nós temos cuidado do serviço do SENHOR, nosso Deus; porém vós o deixastes.

12 And now God is with us at our head, and his priests with their loud horns sounding against you. O children of Israel, do not make war on the Lord, the God of your fathers, for it will not go well for you.
12 E eis que Deus está conosco, à nossa frente, como também os seus sacerdotes, tocando as trombetas, para dar alarme contra vós, ó filhos de Israel; não pelejeis contra o SENHOR, Deus de vossos pais, porque não prosperareis.

13 But Jeroboam had put some of his men to make a surprise attack on them from the back, so some were facing Judah and others were stationed secretly at their back.
13 Mas Jeroboão fez uma emboscada em volta, para darem sobre eles por detrás, de maneira que estavam em frente de Judá, e a emboscada, por detrás deles.

14 And Judah, turning their faces, saw that they were being attacked in front and at the back; and they gave a cry for help to the Lord, while the priests were sounding their horns.
14 Então, Judá olhou, e eis que tinham de pelejar por diante e por detrás; assim, clamaram ao SENHOR, e os sacerdotes tocaram as trombetas.

15 And the men of Judah gave a loud cry; and at their cry, God put fear into Jeroboam and all Israel before Abijah and Judah.
15 E os homens de Judá gritaram, e sucedeu que, gritando os homens de Judá, Deus feriu a Jeroboão e a todo o Israel diante de Abias e de Judá.

16 And the children of Israel went in flight before Judah, and God gave them up into their hands.
16 E os filhos de Israel fugiram de diante de Judá, e Deus os entregou nas mãos de Judá.

17 And Abijah and his people put them to death with great destruction: five hundred thousand of the best of Israel were put to the sword.
17 De maneira que Abias e o seu povo fizeram grande estrago entre eles, porque caíram feridos de Israel quinhentos mil homens escolhidos.

18 So at that time the children of Israel were overcome, and the children of Judah got the better of them, because they put their faith in the Lord, the God of their fathers.
18 E foram abatidos os filhos de Israel naquele tempo; e os filhos de Judá prevaleceram, porque confiaram no SENHOR, Deus de seus pais.

19 And Abijah went after Jeroboam and took some of his towns, Beth-el with its small towns and Jeshanah with its small towns and Ephron with its small towns.
19 E Abias seguiu após Jeroboão e tomou a Betel com os lugares da sua jurisdição, e a Jesana com os lugares da sua jurisdição, e a Efrom com os lugares da sua jurisdição.

20 And Jeroboam did not get back his power again in the life-time of Abijah; and the Lord sent death on him.
20 E Jeroboão não recobrou mais nenhuma força nos dias de Abias; porém o SENHOR o feriu, e morreu.

21 But Abijah became great, and had fourteen wives, and became the father of twenty-two sons and sixteen daughters.
21 Abias, pois, se fortificou, e tomou para si catorze mulheres, e gerou vinte e dois filhos e dezesseis filhas.

22 And the rest of the acts of Abijah, and his ways and his sayings, are recorded in the account of the prophet Iddo.
22 Os mais atos, pois, de Abias, tanto os seus caminhos como as suas palavras, estão escritos na história do profeta Ido.

2 Chronicles 14

1 So Abijah went to rest with his fathers, and they put him into the earth in the town of David, and Asa his son became king in his place; in his time the land was quiet for ten years.
1 E Abias dormiu com seus pais, e o sepultaram na Cidade de Davi; e Asa, seu filho, reinou em seu lugar; nos seus dias, esteve a terra em paz dez anos.

2 And Asa did what was good and right in the eyes of the Lord his God;
2 E Asa fez o que era bom e reto aos olhos do SENHOR, seu Deus,

3 For he took away the altars of strange gods and the high places, and had the upright stones broken and the wood pillars cut down;
3 porque tirou os altares dos deuses estranhos e os altos, e quebrou as estátuas, e cortou os bosques.

4 And he made Judah go after the Lord, the God of their fathers, and keep his laws and his orders.
4 E mandou a Judá que buscassem ao SENHOR, Deus de seus pais, e que observassem a lei e o mandamento.

5 And he took away the high places and the sun-images from all the towns of Judah; and the kingdom was quiet under his rule.
5 Também tirou de todas as cidades de Judá os altos e as imagens do sol; e o reino esteve quieto diante dele.

6 He made walled towns in Judah, for the land was quiet and there were no wars in those years, because the Lord had given him rest.
6 E edificou cidades fortes em Judá, porque a terra estava quieta, e não havia guerra contra ele naqueles anos, porquanto o SENHOR lhe dera repouso.

7 He said to Judah, Let us make these towns, building walls round them with towers and doors and locks. The land is still ours, because we have been true to the Lord our God; we have been true to him and he has given us rest on every side. So they went on building and all went well for them.
7 Disse, pois, a Judá: Edifiquemos estas cidades e cerquemo-las de muros, torres, portas e ferrolhos, enquanto a terra ainda está quieta diante de nós, pois buscamos ao SENHOR, nosso Deus; buscamo-lo e deu-nos repouso em redor. Edificaram, pois, e prosperaram.

8 And Asa had an army of three hundred thousand men of Judah armed with body-covers and spears, and two hundred and eighty thousand of Benjamin armed with body-covers and bows; all these were men of war.
8 Tinha, pois, Asa um exército de trezentos mil de Judá, que traziam pavês e lança, e duzentos e oitenta mil de Benjamim, que traziam escudo e atiravam de arco; todos estes eram varões valentes.

9 And Zerah the Ethiopian, with an army of a million, and three hundred war-carriages, came out against them to Mareshah.
9 E Zerá, o etíope, saiu contra eles, com um exército de um milhão de homens e trezentos carros, e chegou até Maressa.

10 And Asa went out against him, and they put their forces in position in the valley north of Mareshah.
10 Então, Asa saiu contra ele, e ordenaram a batalha no vale de Zefatá, junto a Maressa.

11 And Asa made prayer to the Lord his God and said, Lord, you only are able to give help against the strong to him who has no strength; come to our help, O Lord our God, for our hope is in you, and in your name we have come out against this great army. O Lord, you are our God; let not man’s power be greater than yours.
11 E Asa clamou ao SENHOR, seu Deus, e disse: SENHOR, nada para ti é ajudar, quer o poderoso quer o de nenhuma força; ajuda-nos, pois, SENHOR, nosso Deus, porque em ti confiamos e no teu nome viemos contra esta multidão; SENHOR, tu és o nosso Deus, não prevaleça contra ti o homem.

12 So the Lord sent fear on the Ethiopians before Asa and Judah; and the Ethiopians went in flight.
12 E o SENHOR feriu os etíopes diante de Asa e diante de Judá; e fugiram os etíopes.

13 And Asa and the people who were with him went after them as far as Gerar; and so great was the destruction among the Ethiopians that they were not able to get their army together again, for they were broken before the Lord and before his army; and they took away a great amount of their goods.
13 E Asa e o povo que estava com ele os perseguiram até Gerar, e caíram tantos dos etíopes, que já não havia neles vigor algum; porque foram quebrantados diante do SENHOR e diante do seu exército; e levaram dali mui grande despojo.

14 And they overcame all the towns round Gerar, because the Lord sent fear on them; and they took away their goods from the towns, for there were stores of wealth in them.
14 E feriram todas as cidades nos arredores de Gerar, porque o terror do SENHOR estava sobre eles; e saquearam todas as cidades, porque havia nelas muita presa.

15 And they made an attack on the tents of the owners of the cattle, and took away great numbers of sheep and camels and went back to Jerusalem.
15 Também feriram as malhadas do gado, e levaram ovelhas em abundância e camelos, e voltaram para Jerusalém.

2 Chronicles 15

1 And the spirit of God came on Azariah, the son of Oded;
1 Então, veio o Espírito de Deus sobre Azarias, filho de Obede.

2 And he came face to face with Asa and said to him, Give ear to me, Asa and all Judah and Benjamin: the Lord is with you while you are with him; if your heart’s desire is for him, he will be near you, but if you give him up, he will give you up.
2 E saiu ao encontro de Asa e disse-lhe: Ouvi-me, Asa, e todo o Judá, e Benjamim: O SENHOR está convosco, enquanto vós estais com ele, e, se o buscardes, o achareis; porém, se o deixardes, vos deixará.

3 Now for a long time Israel has been without the true God, and without a teaching priest and without the law;
3 E Israel esteve por muitos dias sem o verdadeiro Deus, e sem sacerdote que o ensinasse, e sem lei.

4 But when in their trouble they were turned to the Lord, the God of Israel, searching after him, he let their search be rewarded.
4 Mas, quando na sua angústia se convertia ao SENHOR, Deus de Israel, e o buscava, o achava.

5 In those times there was no peace for him who went out or for him who came in, but great trouble was on all the people of the lands.
5 E, naqueles tempos, não havia paz nem para o que saía, nem para o que entrava, mas muitas perturbações, sobre todos os habitantes daquelas terras.

6 And they were broken by divisions, nation against nation and town against town, because God sent all sorts of trouble on them.
6 Porque gente contra gente e cidade contra cidade se despedaçavam, porque Deus os conturbara com toda a angústia.

7 But be you strong and let not your hands be feeble, for your work will be rewarded.
7 Mas esforçai-vos, e não desfaleçam as vossas mãos, porque a vossa obra tem uma recompensa.

8 And Asa, hearing these words of Azariah, the son of Oded the prophet, took heart and put away all the disgusting things out of all the land of Judah and Benjamin, and out of the towns which he had taken from the hill-country of Ephraim; and he made new again the altar of the Lord in front of the covered way of the Lord’s house.
8 Ouvindo, pois, Asa estas palavras e a profecia do profeta, filho de Obede, esforçou-se e tirou as abominações de toda a terra de Judá e de Benjamim, como também das cidades que tomara nas montanhas de Efraim; e renovou o altar do SENHOR, que estava diante do Pórtico do SENHOR.

9 And he got together all Judah and Benjamin and those of Ephraim and Manasseh and Simeon who were living with them; for numbers of them came to him out of Israel when they saw that the Lord his God was with him.
9 E ajuntou a todo o Judá, e Benjamim, e, com eles, os estrangeiros de Efraim, e de Manassés, e de Simeão, porque de Israel vinham a ele em grande número, vendo que o SENHOR, seu Deus, era com ele.

10 So they came together at Jerusalem in the third month, in the fifteenth year of the rule of Asa.
10 E ajuntaram-se em Jerusalém no terceiro mês, no ano décimo do reinado de Asa.

11 And that day they made offerings to the Lord of the things they had taken in war, seven hundred oxen and seven thousand sheep.
11 E, no mesmo dia, ofereceram em sacrifício ao SENHOR, do despojo que trouxeram, seiscentos bois e seis mil ovelhas.

12 And they made an agreement to be true to the Lord, the God of their fathers, with all their heart and all their soul;
12 E entraram no concerto de buscarem o SENHOR, Deus de seus pais, com todo o seu coração e com toda a sua alma,

13 And that anyone, small or great, man or woman, who was not true to the Lord, the God of Israel, would be put to death.
13 e de que todo aquele que não buscasse ao SENHOR, Deus de Israel, morresse, desde o menor até ao maior e desde o homem até à mulher.

14 And they made an oath to the Lord, with a loud voice, sounding wind-instruments and horns.
14 E juraram ao SENHOR, em alta voz, com júbilo, e com trombetas, e com buzinas.

15 And all Judah was glad because of the oath, for they had taken it with all their heart, turning to the Lord with all their desire; and he was with them and gave them rest on every side.
15 E todo o Judá se alegrou deste juramento, porque com todo o seu coração juraram, e com toda a sua vontade o buscaram, e o acharam; e o SENHOR lhes deu repouso em redor.

16 And Asa would not let Maacah, his mother, be queen, because she had made a disgusting image for Asherah; and Asa had her image cut down and broken up and burned by the stream Kidron.
16 E também a Maaca, mãe do rei Asa, ele a depôs, para que não fosse mais rainha, porquanto fizera a Aserá um horrível ídolo; e Asa destruiu o seu horrível ídolo, e o despedaçou, e o queimou junto ao ribeiro de Cedrom.

17 But the high places were not taken away out of Israel; but still the heart of Asa was true to the Lord all his life.
17 Os altos, porém, não se tiraram de Israel; contudo, o coração de Asa foi perfeito todos os seus dias.

18 He took into the house of God all the things which his father had made holy and those which he himself had made holy, silver and gold and vessels.
18 E trouxe as coisas que tinha consagrado seu pai e as coisas que ele mesmo tinha consagrado à Casa de Deus: prata, e ouro, e utensílios.

19 And there was no more war till the thirty-fifth year of the rule of Asa.
19 E não houve guerra até ao ano trigésimo quinto do reinado de Asa.

2 Chronicles 16

1 In the thirty-sixth year of the rule of Asa, Baasha, king of Israel, went up against Judah, building Ramah so that no one was able to go out or in to Asa, king of Judah.
1 No ano trigésimo sexto do reinado de Asa, Baasa, rei de Israel, subiu contra Judá e edificou a Ramá, para ninguém deixar sair, nem entrar a Asa, rei de Judá.

2 Then Asa took silver and gold out of the stores of the Lord’s house and of the king’s store-house, and sent to Ben-hadad, king of Aram, at Damascus, saying,
2 Então, tirou Asa a prata e o ouro dos tesouros da Casa do SENHOR e da casa do rei; e enviou a Ben-Hadade, rei da Síria, que habitava em Damasco, dizendo:

3 Let there be an agreement between me and you as there was between my father and your father: see, I have sent you silver and gold; go and put an end to your agreement with Baasha, king of Israel, so that he may give up attacking me.
3 Aliança há entre mim e ti, como houve entre o meu pai e o teu; eis que te envio prata e ouro; vai, pois, e aniquila a tua aliança com Baasa, rei de Israel, para que se retire de sobre mim.

4 And Ben-hadad did as King Asa said, and sent the captains of his armies against the towns of Israel, attacking Ijon and Dan and Abel-maim, and all the store-towns of Naphtali.
4 E Ben-Hadade deu ouvidos ao rei Asa e enviou os capitães dos exércitos que tinha contra as cidades de Israel, e feriram a Ijom, e a Dã, e a Abel-Maim, e a todas as cidades das munições de Naftali.

5 Then Baasha, hearing of it, put a stop to the building of Ramah, and let his work come to an end.
5 E sucedeu que, ouvindo-o Baasa, deixou de edificar a Ramá e não continuou a sua obra.

6 Then King Asa, with all Judah, took away the stones and wood with which Baasha was building Ramah, and he made use of them for building Geba and Mizpah.
6 Então, o rei Asa tomou a todo o Judá, e eles levaram as pedras de Ramá e a sua madeira com que Baasa edificara; e edificou com isto a Geba e a Mispa.

7 At that time Hanani the seer came to Asa, king of Judah, and said to him, Because you have put your faith in the king of Aram and not in the Lord your God, the army of the king of Aram has got away out of your hands.
7 Naquele mesmo tempo, veio Hanani, o vidente, a Asa, rei de Judá, e disse-lhe: Porque confiaste no rei da Síria e não confiaste no SENHOR, teu Deus, o exército do rei da Síria escapou das tuas mãos.

8 Were not the Ethiopians and the Lubim a very great army, with war-carriages and horsemen more than might be numbered? but because your faith was in the Lord, he gave them up into your hands.
8 Porventura, não foram os etíopes e os líbios um grande exército, com muitíssimos carros e cavaleiros? Confiando tu, porém, no SENHOR, ele os entregou nas tuas mãos.

9 For the eyes of the Lord go this way and that, through all the earth, letting it be seen that he is the strong support of those whose hearts are true to him. In this you have done foolishly, for from now you will have wars.
9 Porque, quanto ao SENHOR, seus olhos passam por toda a terra, para mostrar-se forte para com aqueles cujo coração é perfeito para com ele; nisso, pois, procedeste loucamente, porque, desde agora, haverá guerras contra ti.

10 Then Asa was angry with the seer, and put him in prison, burning with wrath against him because of this thing. And at the same time Asa was cruel to some of the people.
10 Porém Asa se indignou contra o vidente e lançou-o na casa do tronco, porque disso grandemente se alterou contra ele; também Asa, no mesmo tempo, oprimiu alguns do povo.

11 Now the acts of Asa, first and last, are recorded in the book of the kings of Judah and Israel.
11 E eis que os atos de Asa, tanto os primeiros como os últimos, estão escritos no livro da história dos reis de Judá e Israel.

12 In the thirty-ninth year of his rule, Asa had a very bad disease of the feet; but he did not go to the Lord for help in his disease, but to medical men.
12 E caiu Asa doente de seus pés no ano trigésimo nono do seu reinado; grande por extremo era a sua enfermidade, e, contudo, na sua enfermidade, não buscou ao SENHOR, mas, antes, aos médicos.

13 So Asa went to rest with his fathers, and death came to him in the forty-first year of his rule.
13 E Asa dormiu com seus pais e morreu no ano quarenta e um do seu reinado.

14 And they put him into the resting-place which he had made for himself in the town of David, in a bed full of sweet perfumes of all sorts of spices, made by the perfumer’s art, and they made a great burning for him.
14 E o sepultaram no seu sepulcro que tinha cavado para si na Cidade de Davi, havendo-o deitado na cama, que se enchera de cheiros e especiarias preparadas segundo a arte dos perfumistas; e fizeram-lhe queima mui grande.

2 Chronicles 17

1 And Jehoshaphat his son became king in his place, and made himself strong against Israel.
1 E Josafá, seu filho, reinou em seu lugar; e fortificou-se contra Israel.

2 He put forces in all the walled towns of Judah, and responsible chiefs in the land of Judah and in the towns of Ephraim, which Asa his father had taken.
2 E pôs gente de guerra em todas as cidades fortes de Judá e guarnições na terra de Judá, como também nas cidades de Efraim que Asa, seu pai, tinha tomado.

3 And the Lord was with Jehoshaphat, because he went in the early ways of his father, not turning to the Baals,
3 E o SENHOR foi com Josafá, porque andou nos primeiros caminhos de Davi, seu pai, e não buscou baalins.

4 But turning to the God of his father and keeping his laws, and not doing as Israel did.
4 Antes, buscou ao Deus de seu pai e andou nos seus mandamentos e não segundo as obras de Israel.

5 So the Lord made his kingdom strong; and all Judah gave offerings to Jehoshaphat, and he had great wealth and honour.
5 E o SENHOR confirmou o reino nas suas mãos, e todo o Judá deu presentes a Josafá; e teve riquezas e glória em abundância.

6 His heart was lifted up in the ways of the Lord; and he went so far as to take away the high places and the wood pillars out of Judah.
6 E exaltou-se o seu coração em seguir os caminhos do SENHOR e ainda tirou os altos e os bosques de Judá.

7 In the third year of his rule he sent Benhail and Obadiah and Zechariah and Nethanel and Micaiah, his captains, as teachers into the towns of Judah;
7 E, no terceiro ano do seu reinado, enviou ele os seus príncipes, a Ben-Hail, e a Obadias, e a Zacarias, e a Natanael, e a Micaías, para ensinarem nas cidades de Judá.

8 And with them, Shemaiah and Nethaniah and Zebadiah and Asahel and Shemiramoth and Jehonathan and Adonijah and Tobijah and Tob-adonijah, the Levites; and Elishama and Jehoram the priests.
8 E, com eles, os levitas Semaías, e Netanias, e Zebadias, e Asael, e Semiramote, e Jônatas, e Adonias, e Tobias, e Tobe-Adonias; e, com eles, os sacerdotes Elisama e Jeorão.

9 And they gave teaching in Judah and had the book of the law of the Lord with them; they went through all the towns of Judah teaching the people.
9 E ensinaram em Judá, e tinham consigo o livro da Lei do SENHOR, e rodearam todas as cidades de Judá, e ensinaram entre o povo.

10 And the fear of the Lord was on all the kingdoms of the lands round Judah, so that they made no wars against Jehoshaphat.
10 E veio o temor do SENHOR sobre todos os reinos das terras que estavam em roda de Judá e não guerrearam contra Josafá.

11 And some of the Philistines took offerings to Jehoshaphat, and made him payments of silver; and the Arabians gave him flocks, seven thousand, seven hundred sheep, and seven thousand, seven hundred he-goats.
11 E alguns dentre os filisteus traziam presentes a Josafá, com o dinheiro do tributo; também os arábios lhe trouxeram gado miúdo: sete mil e setecentos carneiros e sete mil e setecentos bodes.

12 Jehoshaphat became greater and greater, and made strong towers and store-towns in Judah.
12 Cresceu, pois, Josafá, e se engrandeceu extremamente, e edificou fortalezas e cidades de munições em Judá.

13 He had much property in the towns of Judah; he had forces of armed men, great and strong, in Jerusalem.
13 E teve muitas obras nas cidades de Judá, e gente de guerra, e varões valentes, em Jerusalém.

14 This is the number of them, listed by their families, the captains of thousands of Judah: Adnah, the captain, and with him three hundred thousand men of war;
14 E este é o número deles segundo as casas de seus pais; em Judá, eram chefes dos milhares: o chefe Adna, e, com ele, trezentos mil varões valentes;

15 Second to him Jehohanan, the captain, and with him two hundred and eighty thousand;
15 e, após ele, o chefe Joanã, e, com ele, duzentos e oitenta mil;

16 After him Amasiah, the son of Zichri, who freely gave himself to the Lord, and with him two hundred thousand men of war;
16 e, após ele, Amazias, filho de Zicri, que voluntariamente se entregou ao SENHOR; e, com ele, duzentos mil varões valentes;

17 And the captains of Benjamin: Eliada, a great man of war, and with him two hundred thousand armed with bows and body-covers;
17 e, de Benjamim, Eliada, varão valente, e, com ele, duzentos mil, armados de arco e de escudo;

18 And after him Jehozabad, and with him a hundred and eighty thousand trained for war.
18 e, após ele, Jozabade, e, com ele, cento e oitenta mil armados para a guerra.

19 These were the men who were waiting on the king, in addition to those placed by the king in the walled towns through all Judah.
19 Estes estavam a serviço do rei, afora os que o rei tinha posto nas cidades fortes por todo o Judá.

2 Chronicles 18

1 Now Jehoshaphat had great wealth and honour, and his son was married to Ahab’s daughter.
1 Tinha, pois, Josafá riquezas e glória em abundância e aparentou-se com Acabe.

2 And after some years he went down to Samaria to see Ahab. And Ahab made a feast for him and the people who were with him, putting to death great numbers of sheep and oxen; and he got Jehoshaphat to go with him to Ramoth-gilead.
2 E, ao cabo de alguns anos, foi ter com Acabe, a Samaria; e Acabe matou ovelhas e bois em abundância, para ele e para o povo que vinha com ele, e o persuadiu a subir com ele a Ramote-Gileade.

3 For Ahab, king of Israel, said to Jehoshaphat, king of Judah, Will you go with me to Ramoth-gilead? And he said, I am as you are, and my people as your people; we will be with you in the war.
3 Porque Acabe, rei de Israel, disse a Josafá, rei de Judá: Irás tu comigo a Ramote-Gileade? E ele lhe disse: Como tu és, serei eu; e o meu povo, como o teu povo; seremos contigo nesta guerra.

4 Then Jehoshaphat said to the king of Israel, Let us now get directions from the Lord.
4 Disse mais Josafá ao rei de Israel: Consulta, hoje, peço-te, a palavra do SENHOR.

5 So the king of Israel got together all the prophets, four hundred men, and said to them, Am I to go to Ramoth-gilead to make war or not? And they said, Go up: for God will give it into the hands of the king.
5 Então, o rei de Israel ajuntou os profetas, quatrocentos homens, e disse-lhes: Iremos à guerra contra Ramote-Gileade ou deixá-lo-ei? E eles disseram: Sobe, porque Deus a dará nas mãos do rei.

6 But Jehoshaphat said, Is there no other prophet of the Lord here from whom we may get directions?
6 Disse, porém, Josafá: Não há ainda aqui profeta algum do SENHOR, para que o consultemos?

7 And the king of Israel said to Jehoshaphat, There is still one man by whom we may get directions from the Lord, but I have no love for him, because he has never been a prophet of good to me, but only of evil: he is Micaiah, the son of Imla. And Jehoshaphat said, Let not the king say so.
7 Então, o rei de Israel disse a Josafá: Ainda há um homem por quem podemos consultar o SENHOR; porém eu o aborreço, porque nunca profetiza de mim bem, senão sempre mal; este é Micaías, filho de Inlá. E disse Josafá: Não fale o rei assim.

8 Then the king of Israel sent for one of his unsexed servants and said, Go quickly and come back with Micaiah, the son of Imla.
8 Então, chamou o rei de Israel a um eunuco e disse-lhe: Traze aqui depressa a Micaías, filho de Inlá.

9 Now the king of Israel and Jehoshaphat, the king of Judah, were seated on their seats of authority, dressed in their robes, by the doorway into Samaria; and all the prophets were acting as prophets before them.
9 E o rei de Israel e Josafá, rei de Judá, estavam assentados cada um no seu trono, vestidos com as suas vestiduras, e estavam assentados na praça à entrada da porta de Samaria, e todos os profetas profetizavam na sua presença.

10 And Zedekiah, the son of Chenaanah, made himself iron horns and said, The Lord says, Pushing back the Aramaeans with these, you will put an end to them completely.
10 E Zedequias, filho de Quenaana, fez para si uns chifres de ferro e disse: Assim diz o SENHOR: Com estes, ferirás aos siros, até de todo os consumires.

11 And all the prophets said the same thing, saying, Go up to Ramoth-gilead, and it will go well for you, for the Lord will give it into the hands of the king.
11 E todos os profetas profetizavam o mesmo, dizendo: Sobe a Ramote-Gileade e prosperarás, porque o SENHOR a dará nas mãos do rei.

12 Now the servant who had gone to get Micaiah said to him, See now, all the prophets with one voice are saying good things to the king; so let your words be like theirs, and say good things.
12 E o mensageiro que foi chamar a Micaías lhe falou, dizendo: Eis que as palavras dos profetas, a uma boca, são boas para com o rei; seja, pois, também a tua palavra como a de um deles, e fala o que é bom.

13 And Micaiah said, By the living Lord, whatever the Lord says to me I will say.
13 Porém Micaías disse: Vive o SENHOR, que o que meu Deus me disser, isso falarei.

14 When he came to the king, the king said to him, Micaiah, are we to go to Ramoth-gilead to make war or not? And he said, Go up, and it will go well for you; and they will be given up into your hands.
14 Vindo, pois, ao rei, o rei lhe disse: Micaías, iremos a Ramote-Gileade à guerra ou deixá-lo-ei? E ele disse: Subi e prosperareis; e serão dados nas vossas mãos.

15 And the king said to him, Have I not, again and again, put you on your oath to say nothing to me but what is true in the name of the Lord?
15 E o rei lhe disse: Até quantas vezes te conjurarei, para que me não fales senão a verdade no nome do SENHOR?

16 Then he said, I saw all Israel wandering on the mountains like sheep without a keeper; and the Lord said, These have no master: let them go back, every man to his house in peace.
16 Então, disse ele: Vi todo o Israel disperso pelos montes, como ovelhas que não têm pastor; e disse o SENHOR: Estes não têm senhor; torne cada um em paz para casa.

17 And the king of Israel said to Jehoshaphat, Did I not say that he would not be a prophet of good to me, but of evil?
17 Então, o rei de Israel disse a Josafá: Não te disse eu que este não profetizaria de mim bem, porém mal?

18 Then he said, Give ear now to the word of the Lord: I saw the Lord seated on his seat of power, and all the army of heaven in their places, at his right hand and at his left.
18 Disse mais: Pois ouvi a palavra do SENHOR: Vi o SENHOR assentado no seu trono, e a todo o exército celestial em pé, à sua mão direita e à sua esquerda.

19 And the Lord said, How may Ahab, king of Israel, be tricked into going up to Ramoth-gilead to his death? And one said one thing and one another.
19 E disse o SENHOR: Quem persuadirá a Acabe, rei de Israel, a que suba e caia em Ramote-Gileade? Disse mais: Um diz desta maneira, e outro diz de outra.

20 Then a spirit came forward and took his place before the Lord and said, I will get him to do it by a trick. And the Lord said to him, How?
20 Então, saiu um espírito, e se apresentou diante do SENHOR, e disse: Eu o persuadirei. E o SENHOR lhe disse: Com quê?

21 And he said, I will go out and be a spirit of deceit in the mouth of all his prophets. And the Lord said, Your trick will have its effect on him: go out and do so.
21 E ele disse: Eu sairei e serei um espírito de mentira na boca de todos os seus profetas. E disse o Senhor: Tu o persuadirás e também prevalecerás; sai e faze-o assim.

22 And now, see, the Lord has put a spirit of deceit in the mouth of these prophets of yours; and the Lord has said evil against you.
22 Agora, pois, eis que o SENHOR pôs um espírito de mentira na boca destes teus profetas e o SENHOR falou o mal a teu respeito.

23 Then Zedekiah, the son of Chenaanah, came near and gave Micaiah a blow on the side of his face, saying, Where is the spirit of the Lord whose word is in you?
23 Então, Zedequias, filho de Quenaana, se chegou, e feriu a Micaías no queixo, e disse: Por que caminho passou de mim o Espírito do SENHOR para falar a ti?

24 And Micaiah said, Truly, you will see on that day when you go into an inner room to keep yourself safe.
24 E disse Micaías: Eis que o verás naquele dia, quando andares de câmara em câmara, para te esconderes.

25 And the king of Israel said, Take Micaiah and send him back to Amon, the ruler of the town, and to Joash, the king’s son;
25 Então, disse o rei de Israel: Tomai a Micaías e tornai a levá-lo a Amom, o governador da cidade, e a Joás, filho do rei.

26 And say, By the king’s order this man is to be put in prison, and given prison food till I come back in peace.
26 E direis: Assim diz o rei: Metei este homem na casa do cárcere e sustentai-o com pão de angústia e com água de angústia até que eu volte em paz.

27 And Micaiah said, If you come back at all in peace, the Lord has not sent his word by me.
27 E disse Micaías: Se é que tornares em paz, o SENHOR não tem falado por mim. Disse mais: Ouvi, povos todos!

28 So the king of Israel and Jehoshaphat, the king of Judah, went up to Ramoth-gilead.
28 Subiram, pois, o rei de Israel e Josafá, rei de Judá, a Ramote-Gileade.

29 And the king of Israel said to Jehoshaphat, I will make a change in my clothing, so that I do not seem to be the king, and will go into the fight; but do you put on your robes. So the king of Israel made a change in his dress, and they went to the fight.
29 E disse o rei de Israel a Josafá: Disfarçando-me eu, então, entrarei na peleja; tu, porém, veste as tuas vestiduras. Disfarçou-se, pois, o rei de Israel, e entraram na peleja.

30 Now the king of Aram had given orders to the captains of his war-carriages, saying, Make no attack on small or great, but only on the king of Israel.
30 Deu ordem, porém, o rei da Síria aos capitães dos carros que tinha, dizendo: Não pelejareis nem contra pequeno, nem contra grande, senão contra o rei de Israel.

31 So when the captains of the war-carriages saw Jehoshaphat, they said, It is the king of Israel. And turning about, they came round him, but Jehoshaphat gave a cry, and the Lord came to his help, and God sent them away from him.
31 Sucedeu, pois, que, vendo os capitães dos carros a Josafá, disseram: Este é o rei de Israel, e o cercaram para pelejarem; porém Josafá clamou, e o SENHOR o ajudou. E Deus os desviou dele.

32 Now when the captains of the war-carriages saw that he was not the king of Israel, they went back from going after him.
32 Porque sucedeu que, vendo os capitães dos carros que não era o rei de Israel, deixaram de segui-lo.

33 And a certain man sent an arrow from his bow without thought of its direction, and gave the king of Israel a wound where his breastplate was joined to his clothing; so he said to the driver of his war-carriage, Go to one side and take me away out of the army, for I am badly wounded.
33 Então, um homem, na sua simplicidade, armou o arco, e feriu o rei de Israel entre as junturas e a couraça. Então, disse ao carreteiro: Vira a mão e tira-me do exército, porque estou mui ferido.

34 But the fight became more violent while the day went on; and the king of Israel was supported in his war-carriage facing the Aramaeans till the evening; and by sundown he was dead.
34 E, naquele dia, cresceu a peleja, mas o rei de Israel susteve-se em pé no carro defronte dos siros até à tarde; e morreu ao tempo do pôr-do-sol.

2 Chronicles 19

1 And Jehoshaphat, king of Judah, went back to his house in Jerusalem in peace.
1 E Josafá, rei de Judá, voltou à sua casa em paz, a Jerusalém.

2 And Jehu, the son of Hanani the seer, went to King Jehoshaphat and said to him, Is it right for you to go to the help of evil-doers, loving the haters of the Lord? because of this, the wrath of the Lord has come on you.
2 E Jeú, filho de Hanani, o vidente, lhe saiu ao encontro e disse ao rei Josafá: Devias tu ajudar ao ímpio e amar aqueles que ao SENHOR aborrecem? Por isso, virá sobre ti grande ira da parte do SENHOR.

3 But still there is some good in you, for you have put away the wood pillars out of the land, and have given your heart to the worship of God.
3 Boas coisas, contudo, se acharam em ti, porque tiraste os bosques da terra e preparaste o coração, para buscar a Deus.

4 And Jehoshaphat was living in Jerusalem; and he went out again among the people, from Beer-sheba to the hill-country of Ephraim, guiding them back to the Lord, the God of their fathers.
4 Habitou, pois, Josafá em Jerusalém, e tornou a passar pelo povo desde Berseba até as montanhas de Efraim, e fez com que tornassem ao SENHOR, Deus de seus pais.

5 And he put judges through all the land, in every walled town of Judah,
5 E estabeleceu juízes na terra, em todas as cidades fortes, de cidade em cidade.

6 And said to the judges, Take care what you do, for you are judging not for man but for the Lord, and he is with you in the decisions you give.
6 E disse aos juízes: Vede o que fazeis, porque não julgais da parte do homem, senão da parte do SENHOR, e ele está convosco no negócio do juízo.

7 So now let the fear of the Lord be in you; do your work with care; for in the Lord our God there is no evil, or respect for high position, or taking of payment to do wrong.
7 Agora, pois, seja o temor do SENHOR convosco; guardai-o e fazei-o, porque não há no SENHOR, nosso Deus, iniqüidade, nem acepção de pessoas, nem aceitação de presentes.

8 Then in Jerusalem he gave authority to certain of the Levites and the priests and the heads of families of Israel to give decisions for the Lord, and in the causes of those living in Jerusalem.
8 E também estabeleceu Josafá alguns dos levitas, e dos sacerdotes, e dos chefes dos pais de Israel sobre o juízo do SENHOR e sobre as causas judiciais; e tornaram a Jerusalém.

9 And he gave them their orders, saying, You are to do your work in the fear of the Lord, in good faith and with a true heart.
9 E deu-lhes ordem, dizendo: Assim, andai no temor do SENHOR com fidelidade e com coração inteiro.

10 And if any cause comes before you from your brothers living in their towns, where the death punishment is in question, or where there are questions of law or order, or rules or decisions, make them take care that they are not in the wrong before the Lord, so that wrath may not come on you and on your brothers; do this and you yourselves will not be in the wrong.
10 E, em toda diferença que vier a vós de vossos irmãos que habitam nas suas cidades, entre sangue e sangue, entre lei e mandamento, entre estatutos e juízos, admoestai-os que se não façam culpados para com o SENHOR, e não venha grande ira sobre vós e sobre vossos irmãos; fazei assim e não vos fareis culpados.

11 And now, Amariah, the chief priest, is over you in all questions to do with the Lord; and Zebadiah the son of Ishmael, the head of the family of Judah, in everything to do with the king’s business; and the Levites will be overseers for you. Be strong to do the work; and may the Lord be with the upright.
11 E eis que Amarias, o sumo sacerdote, presidirá sobre vós em todo negócio do SENHOR; e Zebadias, filho de Ismael, príncipe da casa de Judá, em todo negócio do rei; também os oficiais, os levitas, estão perante vós; esforçai-vos, pois, e fazei-o; e o SENHOR será com os bons.

2 Chronicles 20

1 Now after this, the children of Moab and the children of Ammon, and with them some of the Meunim, made war against Jehoshaphat.
1 E sucedeu que, depois disso, os filhos de Moabe, e os filhos de Amom, e, com eles, alguns outros dos amonitas vieram à peleja contra Josafá.

2 And they came to Jehoshaphat with the news, saying, A great army is moving against you from Edom across the sea; and now they are in Hazazon-tamar (which is En-gedi).
2 Então, vieram alguns que deram aviso a Josafá, dizendo: Vem contra ti uma grande multidão dalém do mar e da Síria; e eis que já estão em Hazazom-Tamar, que é En-Gedi.

3 Then Jehoshaphat, in his fear, went to the Lord for directions, and gave orders all through Judah for the people to go without food.
3 Então, Josafá temeu e pôs-se a buscar o SENHOR; e apregoou jejum em todo o Judá.

4 And Judah came together to make prayer for help from the Lord; from every town of Judah they came to give worship to the Lord.
4 E Judá se ajuntou, para pedir socorro ao SENHOR; também de todas as cidades de Judá vieram para buscarem o SENHOR.

5 And Jehoshaphat took his place in the meeting of Judah and Jerusalem, in the house of the Lord in front of the new open space,
5 E pôs-se Josafá em pé na congregação de Judá e de Jerusalém, na Casa do SENHOR, diante do pátio novo.

6 And said, O Lord, the God of our fathers, are you not God in heaven? are you not ruler over all the kingdoms of the nations? and in your hands are power and strength so that no one is able to keep his place against you.
6 E disse: Ah! SENHOR, Deus de nossos pais, porventura, não és tu Deus nos céus? Pois tu és dominador sobre todos os reinos das gentes, e na tua mão há força e poder, e não há quem te possa resistir.

7 Did you not, O Lord our God, after driving out the people of this land before your people Israel, give it to the seed of Abraham, your friend, for ever?
7 Porventura, ó Deus nosso, não lançaste tu fora os moradores desta terra, de diante do teu povo de Israel, e não a deste à semente de Abraão, teu amigo, para sempre?

8 And they made it their living-place, building there a holy house for your name, and saying,
8 E habitaram nela e edificaram nela um santuário ao teu nome, dizendo:

9 If evil comes on us, the sword, or punishment, or disease, or need of food, we will come to this house and to you, (for your name is in this house,) crying to you in our trouble, and you will give us salvation in answer to our cry.
9 Se algum mal nos sobrevier, espada, juízo, peste ou fome, nós nos apresentaremos diante desta casa e diante de ti; pois teu nome está nesta casa; e clamaremos a ti na nossa angústia, e tu nos ouvirás e livrarás.

10 And now, see, the children of Ammon and Moab and the people of Mount Seir, whom you kept Israel from attacking when they came out of Egypt, so that turning to one side they did not send destruction on them:
10 Agora, pois, eis que os filhos de Amom e de Moabe e os das montanhas de Seir, pelos quais não permitiste que passasse Israel, quando vinham da terra do Egito, mas deles se desviaram e não o destruíram,

11 See now, how as our reward they have come to send us out of your land which you have given us as our heritage.
11 eis que nos dão o pago, vindo para lançar-nos fora da herança que nos fizeste herdar.

12 O our God, will you not be their judge? for our strength is not equal to this great army which is coming against us; and we are at a loss what to do: but our eyes are on you.
12 Ah! Deus nosso, porventura, não os julgarás? Porque em nós não há força perante esta grande multidão que vem contra nós, e não sabemos nós o que faremos; porém os nossos olhos estão postos em ti.

13 And all Judah were waiting before the Lord, with their little ones, their wives, and their children.
13 E todo o Judá estava em pé perante o SENHOR, como também as suas crianças, as suas mulheres e os seus filhos.

14 Then, before all the meeting, the spirit of the Lord came on Jahaziel, the son of Zechariah, son of Benaiah, son of Jeiel, son of Mattaniah, a Levite and one of the family of Asaph;
14 Então, veio o Espírito do SENHOR, no meio da congregação, sobre Jaaziel, filho de Zacarias, filho de Benaías, filho de Jeiel, filho de Matanias, levita, dos filhos de Asafe,

15 And he said, Give ear, O Judah, and you people of Jerusalem, and you, King Jehoshaphat: the Lord says to you, Have no fear and do not be troubled on account of this great army; for the fight is not yours but God’s.
15 e Jaaziel disse: Dai ouvidos todo o Judá, e vós, moradores de Jerusalém, e tu, ó rei Josafá. Assim o SENHOR vos diz: Não temais, nem vos assusteis por causa desta grande multidão, pois a peleja não é vossa, senão de Deus.

16 Go down against them tomorrow: see, they are coming up by the slope of Ziz; at the end of the valley, before the waste land of Jeruel, you will come face to face with them.
16 Amanhã, descereis contra eles; eis que sobem pela ladeira de Ziz, e os achareis no fim do vale, diante do deserto de Jeruel.

17 There will be no need for you to take up arms in this fight; put yourselves in position, and keep where you are, and you will see the salvation of the Lord with you, O Judah and Jerusalem: have no fear and do not be troubled: go out against them tomorrow, for the Lord is with you.
17 Nesta peleja, não tereis de pelejar; parai, estai em pé e vede a salvação do SENHOR para convosco, ó Judá e Jerusalém; não temais, nem vos assusteis; amanhã, saí-lhes ao encontro, porque o SENHOR será convosco.

18 Then Jehoshaphat went down with his face to the earth, and all Judah and the people of Jerusalem gave worship to the Lord, falling down before him.
18 Então, Josafá se prostrou com o rosto em terra; e todo o Judá e os moradores de Jerusalém se lançaram perante o SENHOR, adorando o SENHOR.

19 And the Levites, the children of the Kohathites and the Korahites, got to their feet and gave praise to the Lord, the God of Israel, with a loud voice.
19 E levantaram-se os levitas, dos filhos dos coatitas e dos filhos dos coraítas, para louvarem o SENHOR, Deus de Israel, com voz muito alta.

20 And early in the morning they got up and went out to the waste land of Tekoa: and when they were going out, Jehoshaphat took his station and said to them, Give ear to me, O Judah and you people of Jerusalem: have faith in the Lord your God and you will be safe; have faith in his prophets and all will go well for you.
20 E, pela manhã cedo, se levantaram e saíram ao deserto de Tecoa; e, saindo eles, pôs-se em pé Josafá e disse: Ouvi-me, ó Judá e vós, moradores de Jerusalém: Crede no SENHOR, vosso Deus, e estareis seguros; crede nos seus profetas e prosperareis.

21 And after discussion with the people, he put in their places those who were to make melody to the Lord, praising him in holy robes, while they went at the head of the army, and saying, May the Lord be praised, for his mercy is unchanging for ever.
21 E aconselhou-se com o povo e ordenou cantores para o SENHOR, que louvassem a majestade santa, saindo diante dos armados e dizendo: Louvai o SENHOR, porque a sua benignidade dura para sempre.

22 And at the first notes of song and praise the Lord sent a surprise attack against the children of Ammon and Moab and the people of Mount Seir, who had come against Judah; and they were overcome.
22 E, ao tempo em que começaram com júbilo e louvor, o SENHOR pôs emboscadas contra os filhos de Amom e de Moabe e os das montanhas de Seir, que vieram contra Judá e foram desbaratados.

23 And the children of Ammon and Moab made an attack on the people of Mount Seir with a view to their complete destruction; and when they had put an end to the people of Seir, everyman’s hand was turned against his neighbour for his destruction.
23 Porque os filhos de Amom e de Moabe se levantaram contra os moradores das montanhas de Seir, para os destruir e exterminar; e, acabando eles com os moradores de Seir, ajudaram uns aos outros a destruir-se.

24 And Judah came to the watchtower of the waste land, and looking in the direction of the army, they saw only dead bodies stretched on the earth; no living man was to be seen.
24 Entretanto, chegou Judá à atalaia do deserto; e olharam para a multidão, e eis que eram corpos mortos, que jaziam em terra, e nenhum escapou.

25 And when Jehoshaphat and his people came to take their goods from them, they saw beasts in great numbers, and wealth and clothing and things of value, more than they were able to take away; all this they took for themselves, and they were three days getting it away, there was so much.
25 E vieram Josafá e o seu povo para saquear os despojos e acharam neles fazenda e cadáveres em abundância, como também objetos preciosos; e tomaram para si tanto, que não podiam levar mais; três dias saquearam o despojo, porque era muito.

26 On the fourth day they all came together in the Valley of Blessing, and there they gave blessing to the Lord; for which cause that place has been named the Valley of Blessing to this day.
26 E, ao quarto dia, se ajuntaram no vale de Beraca, porque ali louvaram o SENHOR; por isso, chamaram àquele lugar vale de Beraca, até ao dia de hoje.

27 Then all the men of Judah and Jerusalem went back, with Jehoshaphat at their head, coming back to Jerusalem with joy; for the Lord had made them glad over their haters.
27 Então, voltaram todos os homens de Judá e de Jerusalém, e Josafá, à frente deles, para irem a Jerusalém com alegria, porque o SENHOR os alegrara acerca dos seus inimigos.

28 So they came to Jerusalem with corded instruments and wind-instruments into the house of the Lord.
28 E foram a Jerusalém com alaúdes, e com harpas, e com trombetas, para a Casa do SENHOR.

29 And the fear of God came on all the kingdoms of the lands, when they had news of how the Lord made war on those who came against Israel.
29 E veio o temor de Deus sobre todos os reinos daquelas terras, ouvindo eles que o SENHOR havia pelejado contra os inimigos de Israel.

30 So the kingdom of Jehoshaphat was quiet, for the Lord gave him rest on every side.
30 E o reino de Josafá ficou quieto e o seu Deus lhe deu repouso em redor.

31 And Jehoshaphat was king over Judah: he was thirty-five years old when he became king, and he was ruling for twenty-five years in Jerusalem: his mother’s name was Azubah, the daughter of Shilhi.
31 E Josafá reinou sobre Judá; era da idade de trinta e cinco anos quando começou a reinar e vinte e cinco anos reinou em Jerusalém; e era o nome de sua mãe Azuba, filha de Sili.

32 He went in the ways of his father Asa, not turning away, but doing right in the eyes of the Lord.
32 E andou nos caminhos de Asa, seu pai, e não se desviou dele, fazendo o que era reto aos olhos do SENHOR.

33 The high places, however, were not taken away, and the hearts of the people were still not true to the God of their fathers.
33 Contudo, os altos se não tiraram, porque o povo não tinha ainda preparado o coração para com o Deus de seus pais.

34 Now as for the rest of the acts of Jehoshaphat, first and last, they are recorded in the words of Jehu, the son of Hanani, which were put in the book of the kings of Israel.
34 Ora, o resto dos atos de Josafá, tanto os primeiros como os últimos, eis que está escrito nas notas de Jeú, filho de Hanani, que as inseriu no livro da história dos reis de Israel.

35 After this Jehoshaphat, king of Judah, became friends with Ahaziah, king of Israel, who did much evil:
35 Porém, depois disso, Josafá, rei de Judá, se aliou com Acazias, rei de Israel, que procedeu com toda a impiedade.

36 Together they made ships to go to Tarshish, building them in Ezion-geber.
36 E aliou-se com ele, para fazerem navios que fossem a Társis; e fizeram os navios em Eziom-Geber.

37 Then the word of Eliezer the prophet, the son of Dodavahu of Mareshah, came against Jehoshaphat, saying, Because you have let yourself be joined with Ahaziah, the Lord has sent destruction on your works. And the ships were broken and were not able to go to Tarshish.
37 Porém Eliézer, filho de Dodavá, de Maressa, profetizou contra Josafá, dizendo: Visto que te aliaste com Acazias, o SENHOR despedaçou as tuas obras. E os navios se quebraram e não puderam ir a Társis.

2 Chronicles 21

1 And Jehoshaphat went to rest with his fathers, and his body was put into the earth in the town of David. And Jehoram his son became king in his place.
1 Depois, Josafá dormiu com seus pais, e o sepultaram com seus pais na Cidade de Davi; e Jeorão, seu filho, reinou em seu lugar.

2 And he had brothers, sons of Jehoshaphat, Azariah, Jehiel, Zechariah, Azariah, Michael, and Shephatiah; all these were sons of Jehoshaphat, king of Israel.
2 E teve irmãos, filhos de Josafá: Azarias, e Jeiel, e Zacarias, e Azariau, e Micael, e Sefatias; todos estes foram filhos de Josafá, rei de Israel.

3 And their father gave them much silver and gold and things of great value, as well as walled towns in Judah; but the kingdom he gave to Jehoram, because he was the oldest.
3 E seu pai lhes deu muitos dons de prata, e de ouro, e de coisas preciosíssimas, com cidades fortes em Judá; porém o reino deu a Jeorão, porquanto era o primogênito.

4 Now when Jehoram had taken his place over his father’s kingdom, and had made his position safe, he put all his brothers to death with the sword, as well as some of the princes of Israel.
4 E, subindo Jeorão ao reino de seu pai e havendo-se fortificado, matou todos os seus irmãos à espada, como também alguns dos príncipes de Israel.

5 Jehoram was thirty-two years old when he became king; and he was ruling in Jerusalem for eight years.
5 Da idade de trinta e dois anos era Jeorão quando começou a reinar e reinou oito anos em Jerusalém.

6 He went in the ways of the kings of Israel, and did as the family of Ahab did, for the daughter of Ahab was his wife; and he did evil in the eyes of the Lord.
6 E andou nos caminhos dos reis de Israel, como fazia a casa de Acabe; porque tinha a filha de Acabe por mulher e fazia o que era mau aos olhos do SENHOR.

7 But it was not the Lord’s purpose to send destruction on the family of David, because of the agreement he had made with David, when he said he would give to him and to his sons a light for ever.
7 Porém o SENHOR não quis destruir a casa de Davi, em atenção ao concerto que tinha feito com Davi, e porque também tinha dito que lhe daria por todos os dias uma lâmpada, a ele e a seus filhos.

8 In his time Edom made themselves free from the rule of Judah, and took a king for themselves.
8 Nos dias de Jeorão, se revoltaram os edomitas contra o domínio de Judá e constituíram para si um rei.

9 Then Jehoram went over with his captains and all his war-carriages…made an attack by night on the Edomites, whose forces were all round him…on the captains of the war-carriages.
9 Pelo que Jeorão passou adiante com os seus chefes, e todos os carros, com ele; e levantou-se de noite e feriu os edomitas que o tinham cercado, como também os capitães dos carros.

10 So Edom made themselves free from the rule of Judah, to this day: and at the same time Libnah made itself free from his rule; because he was turned away from the Lord, the God of his fathers.
10 Todavia, os edomitas se revoltaram contra o domínio de Judá até ao dia de hoje; então, no mesmo tempo, Libna se revoltou de debaixo de seu mando, porque deixara ao SENHOR, Deus de seus pais.

11 And more than this, he made high places in the mountains of Judah, teaching the people of Jerusalem to go after false gods, and guiding Judah away from the true way.
11 Ele também fez altos nos montes de Judá, e fez com que se corrompessem os moradores de Jerusalém, e até a Judá impeliu a isso.

12 And a letter came to him from Elijah the prophet, saying, The Lord, the God of your father David, says, Because you have not kept to the ways of your father Jehoshaphat or the ways of Asa, king of Judah,
12 Então, lhe veio um escrito da parte de Elias, o profeta, que dizia: Assim diz o SENHOR, Deus de Davi, teu pai: Visto que não andaste nos caminhos de Josafá, teu pai, e nos caminhos de Asa, rei de Judá,

13 But have gone in the way of the kings of Israel, and have made Judah and the people of Jerusalem go after false gods, as the family of Ahab did: and because you have put to death your father’s sons, your brothers, who were better than yourself:
13 mas andaste nos caminhos dos reis de Israel, e fizeste corromper a Judá e aos moradores de Jerusalém, segundo a corrupção da casa de Acabe, e também mataste teus irmãos, da casa de teu pai, melhores do que tu,

14 Now, truly, the Lord will send a great destruction on your people and your children and your wives and everything which is yours:
14 eis que o SENHOR ferirá com um grande flagelo ao teu povo, e aos teus filhos, e às tuas mulheres, e a todas as tuas fazendas.

15 And you yourself will undergo the cruel pains of a disease in your stomach, so that day by day your inside will be falling out because of the disease.
15 Tu também terás uma grande enfermidade por meio de um mal nas tuas entranhas, até que te saiam as tuas entranhas, por causa da enfermidade, dia após dia.

16 Then the Philistines and the Arabians, who are by Ethiopia, were moved by the Lord to make war on Jehoram;
16 Despertou, pois, o SENHOR contra Jeorão o espírito dos filisteus e dos arábios, que estão da banda dos etíopes.

17 And they came up against Judah, forcing a way into it, and took away all the goods in the king’s house, as well as his sons and his wives; so that he had no son but only Jehoahaz, the youngest.
17 Estes subiram a Judá, e deram sobre ela, e levaram toda a fazenda que se achou na casa do rei, como também a seus filhos e a suas mulheres; de modo que lhe não deixaram filho, senão a Jeoacaz, o mais moço de seus filhos.

18 And after all this the Lord sent on him a disease of the stomach from which it was impossible for him to be made well.
18 E, depois de tudo isso, o SENHOR o feriu nas suas entranhas com uma enfermidade incurável.

19 And time went on, and after two years, his inside falling out because of the disease, he came to his death in cruel pain. And his people made no burning for him like the burning made for his fathers.
19 E sucedeu que, depois de muitos dias, e chegado o fim de dois anos, saíram-lhe as entranhas com a doença, e morreu de más enfermidades; e o seu povo lhe não queimou aromas, como queimara a seus pais.

20 He was thirty-two years old when he became king, and he was ruling in Jerusalem for eight years: and at his death he was not regretted; they put his body into the earth in the town of David, but not in the resting-place of the kings.
20 Era da idade de trinta e dois anos quando começou a reinar, e reinou em Jerusalém oito anos, e foi-se sem deixar de si saudades; e o sepultaram na Cidade de Davi, porém não nos sepulcros dos reis.

2 Chronicles 22

1 And the people of Jerusalem made Ahaziah, his youngest son, king in his place, for the band of men who came with the Arabians to the army had put all the older sons to death. So Ahaziah, the son of Jehoram, became king.
1 E os moradores de Jerusalém fizeram rei a Acazias, seu filho mais moço, em seu lugar, porque a tropa que viera com os arábios ao arraial tinha matado a todos os mais velhos; e assim reinou Acazias, filho de Jeorão, rei de Judá.

2 Ahaziah was twenty-two years old when he became king, and he was ruling in Jerusalem for one year. His mother’s name was Athaliah, the daughter of Omri.
2 Era da idade de quarenta e dois anos quando começou a reinar e reinou um ano em Jerusalém. E era o nome de sua mãe Atalia, filha de Onri.

3 He went in the ways of the family of Ahab, for his mother was his teacher in evil-doing.
3 Também este andou nos caminhos da casa de Acabe, porque sua mãe era sua conselheira, para proceder impiamente.

4 And he did evil in the eyes of the Lord, as the family of Ahab did; for after the death of his father they were his guides to his destruction.
4 E fez o que era mal aos olhos do SENHOR, como a casa de Acabe, porque eles eram seus conselheiros depois da morte de seu pai, para a sua perdição.

5 Acting on their suggestion, he went with Jehoram, son of Ahab, king of Israel, to make war on Hazael, king of Aram, at Ramoth-gilead: and Joram was wounded by the bowmen.
5 Também andou no seu conselho e foi-se com Jorão, filho de Acabe, rei de Israel, à peleja contra Hazael, rei da Síria, junto a Ramote-Gileade; e os siros feriram a Jorão.

6 And he went back to Jezreel to get well from the wounds which they had given him at Ramah when he was fighting against Hazael, king of Aram. And Ahaziah, the son of Jehoram, king of Judah, went down to Jezreel to see Jehoram, the son of Ahab, because he was ill.
6 E tornou a curar-se em Jezreel das feridas que se lhe deram junto a Ramá, pelejando contra Hazael, rei da Síria; e Azarias, filho de Jeorão, rei de Judá, desceu para ver a Jorão, filho de Acabe, em Jezreel; porque estava doente.

7 Now by the purpose of God, Ahaziah’s journey to see Jehoram was the cause of his downfall: for when he came there, he went out with Jehoram against Jehu, the son of Nimshi, who had been marked out by the Lord for the destruction of the family of Ahab.
7 Veio, pois, de Deus o abatimento de Acazias, para que viesse a Jorão, porque, vindo ele, saiu com Jorão contra Jeú, filho de Ninsi, a quem o SENHOR tinha ungido para desarraigar a casa de Acabe.

8 Now when Jehu was effecting the punishment of the family of Ahab, he came to the princes of Judah and the sons of Ahaziah’s brothers, the servants of Ahaziah, and put them to death.
8 E sucedeu que, executando Jeú juízo contra a casa de Acabe, achou os príncipes de Judá e os filhos dos irmãos de Acazias, que serviam a Acazias, e os matou.

9 And he went in search of Ahaziah; and when they came where he was, (for he was in a secret place in Samaria,) they took him to Jehu and put him to death; then they put his body to rest in the earth, for they said, He is the son of Jehoshaphat, whose heart was true to the Lord. So the family of Ahaziah had no power to keep the kingdom.
9 Depois, buscou a Acazias (porque se tinha escondido em Samaria), e o alcançaram, e o trouxeram a Jeú, e o mataram, e o sepultaram; porque disseram: Filho é de Josafá, que buscou ao SENHOR com todo o seu coração. E não tinha já a casa de Acazias ninguém que tivesse força para o reino.

10 Now when Athaliah, the mother of Ahaziah, saw that her son was dead, she had all the rest of the seed of the kingdom of Judah put to death.
10 Vendo, pois, Atalia, mãe de Acazias, que seu filho era morto, levantou-se e destruiu toda a semente real da casa de Judá.

11 But Jehoshabeath, the daughter of the king, secretly took Joash, the son of Ahaziah, away from among the king’s sons who were put to death, and put him and the woman who took care of him in a bedroom. So Jehoshabeath, the daughter of King Jehoram, the wife of Jehoiada the priest and sister of Ahaziah, kept him safe from Athaliah, so that she did not put him to death.
11 Porém Jeosebate, filha do rei, tomou a Joás, filho de Acazias, e tirou-o dentre os filhos do rei, a quem matavam, e o pôs com a sua ama na câmara dos leitos; assim, Jeosabeate, filha do rei Jeorão, mulher do sacerdote Joiada (porque era irmã de Acazias), o escondeu de Atalia, de modo que o não matou.

12 And she kept him safe with her in the house of God for six years, while Athaliah was ruling the land.
12 E esteve com eles escondido na Casa de Deus seis anos; e Atalia reinou sobre a terra.

2 Chronicles 23

1 In the seventh year, Jehoiada made himself strong, and made an agreement with the captains of hundreds, Azariah, the son of Jeroham, Ishmael, the son of Jehohanan, Azariah, the son of Obed, Maaseiah, the son of Adaiah, and Elishaphat, the son of Zichri.
1 Porém, no sétimo ano, Joiada se esforçou e tomou consigo em aliança os chefes das centenas: Azarias, filho de Jeroão, e Ismael, filho de Joanã, e Azarias, filho de Obede, e Maaséias, filho de Adaías, e Elisafate, filho de Zicri.

2 And they went through Judah, getting together the Levites and the heads of families in Israel from all the towns of Judah, and they came to Jerusalem.
2 Estes rodearam Judá, e ajuntaram os levitas de todas as cidades de Judá e os cabeças dos pais de Israel, e vieram para Jerusalém.

3 And all the people made an agreement with the king in the house of God. And he said to them, Truly, the king’s son will be king, as the Lord has said about the sons of David.
3 E toda aquela congregação fez aliança com o rei na Casa de Deus; e Joiada lhes disse: Eis que o filho do rei reinará, como o SENHOR falou a respeito dos filhos de Davi.

4 This is what you are to do: let a third of you, of the priests and Levites, who come in on the Sabbath, keep the doors;
4 Esta é a coisa que haveis de fazer: uma terça parte de vós, sacerdotes e levitas que entram de sábado, será formada de porteiros;

5 And a third are to be stationed at the king’s house; and a third at the doorway of the horses: while all the people are waiting in the open spaces round the house of the Lord.
5 e uma terça parte estará na casa do rei, e a outra terça parte, à porta do fundamento; e todo o povo estará nos pátios da Casa do SENHOR.

6 But let no one come into the house of the Lord but only the priests and those of the Levites who have work to do there; they may go in for they are holy; but the rest of the people are to keep the orders of the Lord.
6 Porém ninguém entre na Casa do SENHOR, senão os sacerdotes e os levitas que ministram; estes entrarão porque santos são; mas todo o povo guardará o preceito do SENHOR.

7 And the Levites are to make a circle round the king, every man being armed; and any man who comes into the house is to be put to death; you are to keep with the king when he comes in and when he goes out.
7 E os levitas rodearão ao rei, cada um com as armas na mão; e qualquer que entrar na casa morrerá; porém vós estareis com o rei quando entrar e quando sair.

8 So the Levites and all Judah did as Jehoiada the priest had given them orders: every one took with him his men, those who were to come in and those who were to go out on the Sabbath; for Jehoiada had not sent away the divisions.
8 E fizeram os levitas e todo o Judá conforme tudo o que ordenara o sacerdote Joiada; e tomou cada um os seus homens, os que entravam no sábado com os que saíam no sábado; porque o sacerdote Joiada não tinha despedido as turmas.

9 Then Jehoiada the priest gave to the captains of hundreds the spears and body-covers which had been King David’s and which were kept in the house of God.
9 Também o sacerdote Joiada deu aos chefes das centenas as lanças, e os escudos, e as rodelas que foram do rei Davi, os quais estavam na Casa de Deus.

10 And he put all the people in position, every man with his instruments of war in his hand, from the right side of the house to the left, by the altar and the house and all round the king.
10 E dispôs todo o povo, e a cada um com as armas na mão, desde a banda direita da casa até à banda esquerda da casa, da banda do altar e da casa, à roda do rei.

11 Then they made the king’s son come out, and they put the crown on his head and gave him the arm-bands and made him king: and Jehoiada and his sons put the holy oil on him and said, Long life to the king.
11 Então, tiraram para fora ao filho do rei, e lhe puseram a coroa, e deram-lhe o testemunho, e o fizeram rei; e Joiada e seus filhos o ungiram e disseram: Viva o rei!

12 Now Athaliah, hearing the noise of the people running and praising the king, came to the people in the house of the Lord:
12 Ouvindo, pois, Atalia a voz do povo, que corria para louvar o rei, veio ao povo à Casa do SENHOR.

13 And looking, she saw the king in his place by the pillar at the doorway, and the captains and the horns by his side; and all the people of the land were giving signs of joy and sounding the horns; and the makers of melody were playing on instruments of music, taking the chief part in the song of praise. Then Athaliah, violently parting her robes, said, Broken faith, broken faith!
13 E olhou, e eis que o rei estava perto da sua coluna, à entrada, e os chefes e as trombetas, junto ao rei; e todo o povo da terra estava alegre e tocava as trombetas; e também os cantores tocavam instrumentos músicos e davam a entender que se deviam cantar louvores; então, Atalia rasgou as suas vestes e clamou: Traição, traição!

14 Then Jehoiada the priest gave orders to the captains of hundreds who had authority over the army, saying, Take her outside the lines, and let anyone who goes after her be put to death with the sword. For the priest said, Let her not be put to death in the house of the Lord.
14 Porém o sacerdote Joiada tirou para fora os capitães que estavam postos sobre o exército e disse-lhes: Tirai-a para fora das fileiras, e o que a seguir morrerá à espada; porque dissera o sacerdote: Não a matareis na Casa do SENHOR.

15 So they put their hands on her, and she went to the king’s house by the doorway of the king’s horses; and there she was put to death.
15 E eles lhe lançaram as mãos, e ela foi à entrada da Porta dos Cavalos, da casa do rei; e ali a mataram.

16 And Jehoiada made an agreement between the Lord and all the people and the king, that they would be the Lord’s people.
16 E Joiada fez aliança entre si, e o povo, e o rei, para serem eles o povo do SENHOR.

17 Then all the people went to the house of Baal and had it pulled down, and its altars and images broken up; and Mattan, the priest of Baal, they put to death before the altars.
17 Depois, todo o povo entrou na casa de Baal e a derribou; eles quebraram os seus altares e as suas imagens e a Matã, sacerdote de Baal, mataram diante dos altares.

18 And Jehoiada put the work and the care of the house of the Lord into the hands of the priests and the Levites, who had been grouped in divisions by David to make burned offerings to the Lord, as it is recorded in the law of Moses, with joy and song as David had said.
18 E Joiada ordenou os ofícios na Casa do SENHOR, debaixo das mãos dos sacerdotes, os levitas a quem Davi designara na Casa do SENHOR para oferecerem os holocaustos do SENHOR, como está escrito na Lei de Moisés, com alegria e com canto, conforme a instituição de Davi.

19 And he put door-keepers at the doors of the Lord’s house, to see that no one who was unclean in any way might come in.
19 E pôs porteiros às portas da Casa do SENHOR, para que não entrasse nela ninguém imundo em coisa alguma.

20 Then he took the captains of hundreds and the chiefs and the rulers of the people and all the people of the land, and they came down with the king from the house of the Lord through the higher doorway into the king’s house, and put the king on the seat of the kingdom.
20 E Joiada tomou os capitães de cem, e os poderosos, e os que tinham domínio entre o povo e todo o povo da terra, e conduziram o rei da Casa do SENHOR, e entraram na casa do rei pela porta maior, e assentaram o rei no trono do reino.

21 So all the people of the land were glad and the town was quiet, for they had put Athaliah to death with the sword.
21 E todo o povo da terra se alegrou, e a cidade ficou em paz, depois que mataram Atalia à espada.

2 Chronicles 24

1 Joash was seven years old when he became king, and he was ruling for forty years in Jerusalem: his mother’s name was Zibiah of Beer-sheba.
1 Tinha Joás sete anos de idade quando começou a reinar e quarenta anos reinou em Jerusalém; e era o nome de sua mãe Zíbia, de Berseba.

2 And Joash did what was right in the eyes of the Lord as long as Jehoiada the priest was living.
2 E fez Joás o que era reto aos olhos do SENHOR, todos os dias do sacerdote Joiada.

3 And Jehoiada took two wives for him, and he became the father of sons and daughters.
3 E tomou Joiada para ele duas mulheres; e gerou filhos e filhas.

4 Now after this Joash had a desire to put the house of the Lord into good order again;
4 E sucedeu, depois disso, que veio ao coração de Joás renovar a Casa do SENHOR.

5 And getting together the priests and Levites, he said to them, Go out into the towns of Judah year by year, and get from all Israel money to keep the house of your God in good condition; and see that this is done without loss of time. The Levites, however, were slow in doing so.
5 Ajuntou, pois, os sacerdotes e os levitas e disse-lhes: Saí pelas cidades de Judá e ajuntai dinheiro de todo o Israel para reparar a Casa do vosso Deus, de ano em ano; e, vós, apressai este negócio. Porém os levitas não se apressaram.

6 Then the king sent for Jehoiada, the chief priest, and said to him, Why have you not given the Levites orders that the tax fixed by Moses, the servant of the Lord, and by the meeting of Israel, for the Tent of witness, is to be got in from Judah and Jerusalem and handed over?
6 E o rei chamou a Joiada, o chefe, e disse-lhe: Por que não fizeste inquirição entre os levitas, para que trouxessem de Judá e de Jerusalém a oferta de Moisés, servo do SENHOR, e da congregação de Israel à Tenda do Testemunho?

7 For the house of the Lord had been broken up by Athaliah, that evil woman, and her sons; and all its holy things they had given to the Baals.
7 Porque, sendo Atalia ímpia, seus filhos arruinaram a Casa de Deus e até todas as coisas sagradas da Casa do SENHOR empregaram em baalins.

8 So at the king’s order they made a chest and put it outside the doorway of the house of the Lord.
8 E deu o rei ordem, e fizeram uma arca e a puseram fora, à porta da Casa do SENHOR.

9 And an order was sent out through all Judah and Jerusalem that payment was to be made to the Lord of the tax which Moses, the servant of God, had put on Israel in the waste land.
9 E publicou-se em Judá e em Jerusalém que trouxessem ao SENHOR a oferta que Moisés, o servo de Deus, havia imposto a Israel no deserto.

10 And all the chiefs and all the people came gladly and put their money into the chest, till they had all given.
10 Então, todos os príncipes e todo o povo se alegraram, e trouxeram a oferta, e a lançaram na arca, até que acabaram a obra.

11 So when the chest was taken to the king’s servants by the Levites, and they saw that there was much money in it, the king’s scribe and the chief priest’s servant took the money out, and put the chest back in its place. They did this day by day, and got together a great amount of money.
11 E sucedeu que, ao tempo que traziam a arca pelas mãos dos levitas, segundo o mandado do rei, e vendo que já havia muito dinheiro, vinham o escrivão do rei e o comissário do sumo sacerdote, e esvaziavam a arca, e a tomavam, e a tornavam ao seu lugar; assim faziam dia após dia e ajuntaram dinheiro em abundância,

12 Then the king and Jehoiada gave it to those who were responsible for getting the work done on the Lord’s house, and with it they got wall-builders and woodworkers and metal-workers to put the house of the Lord in good order again.
12 o qual o rei e Joiada davam aos que dirigiam a obra do serviço da Casa do SENHOR e alugaram pedreiros e carpinteiros, para renovarem a Casa do SENHOR, como também ferreiros e serralheiros, para repararem a Casa do SENHOR.

13 So the workmen did their work, making good what was damaged and building up the house of God till it was strong and beautiful again.
13 E os que dirigiam a obra faziam que a reparação da obra fosse crescendo pelas suas mãos, e restauraram a Casa de Deus ao seu estado, e a fortaleceram.

14 And when the work was done, they took the rest of the money to the king and Jehoiada, and it was used for making the vessels for the house of the Lord, all the vessels needed for the offerings, the spoons and the vessels of gold and silver. And as long as Jehoiada was living, the regular burned offerings were offered in the house of the Lord.
14 E, depois de acabarem, trouxeram o resto do dinheiro diante do rei e de Joiada e dele fizeram utensílios para a Casa do SENHOR, e objetos para ministrar e oferecer, e perfumadores e vasos de ouro e de prata. E continuamente sacrificaram holocaustos na Casa do SENHOR, todos os dias de Joiada.

15 But Jehoiada became old and full of days, and he came to his end; he was a hundred and thirty years old at the time of his death.
15 E envelheceu Joiada e morreu farto de dias; era da idade de cento e trinta anos quando morreu.

16 And they put him into his last resting-place in the town of David, among the kings, because he had done good in Israel for God and for his house.
16 E o sepultaram na Cidade de Davi, com os reis, porque tinha feito bem em Israel e para com Deus e a sua casa.

17 Now after the death of Jehoiada, the chiefs of Judah came and went down on their faces before the king. Then the king gave ear to them.
17 Porém, depois da morte de Joiada, vieram os príncipes de Judá e prostraram-se perante o rei; e o rei os ouviu.

18 And they gave up the house of the Lord God of their fathers, and became worshippers of pillars of wood and of the images; and because of this sin of theirs, wrath came on Judah and Jerusalem.
18 E deixaram a Casa do SENHOR, Deus de seus pais, e serviram às imagens do bosque e aos ídolos; então, veio grande ira sobre Judá e Jerusalém por causa desta sua culpa.

19 And the Lord sent them prophets to make them come back to him; and they gave witness against them, but they would not give ear.
19 Porém enviou profetas entre eles, para os fazer tornar ao SENHOR, os quais protestaram contra eles; mas eles não deram ouvidos.

20 Then the spirit of God came on Zechariah, the son of Jehoiada the priest, and, getting up before the people, he said to them, God has said, Why do you go against the orders of the Lord, so that everything goes badly for you? because you have given up the Lord, he has given you up.
20 E o Espírito de Deus revestiu a Zacarias, filho do sacerdote Joiada, o qual se pôs em pé acima do povo e lhes disse: Assim diz Deus: Por que transgredis os mandamentos do SENHOR? Portanto, não prosperareis; porque deixastes o SENHOR, também ele vos deixará.

21 But when they had made a secret design against him, he was stoned with stones, by the king’s order, in the outer square of the Lord’s house.
21 E eles conspiraram contra ele e o apedrejaram com pedras, por mandado do rei, no pátio da Casa do SENHOR.

22 So King Joash did not keep in mind how good Jehoiada his father had been to him, but put his son to death. And in the hour of his death he said, May the Lord see it and take payment!
22 Assim, o rei Joás não se lembrou da beneficência que Joiada, pai de Zacarias, lhe fizera; porém matou-lhe o filho, o qual, morrendo, disse: O SENHOR o verá e o requererá.

23 Now in the spring, the army of the Aramaeans came up against him; they came against Judah and Jerusalem, putting to death all the great men of the people and sending all the goods they took from them to the king of Damascus.
23 E sucedeu, no decurso de um ano, que o exército da Síria subiu contra ele, e vieram a Judá e a Jerusalém, e destruíram dentre o povo a todos os príncipes do povo, e todo o seu despojo enviaram ao rei de Damasco.

24 For though the army of Aram was only a small one, the Lord gave a very great army into their hands, because they had given up the Lord, the God of their fathers. So they put into effect the punishment of Joash.
24 Porque, ainda que o exército dos siros viera com poucos homens, contudo, o SENHOR deu nas suas mãos um exército de grande multidão, porquanto deixaram ao SENHOR, Deus de seus pais. Assim executaram os juízos de Deus contra Joás.

25 And when they had gone away from him, (for he was broken with disease,) his servants made a secret design against him because of the blood of the son of Jehoiada the priest, and they put him to death on his bed; and they put his body into the earth in the town of David, but not in the resting-place of the kings.
25 E, retirando-se dele (porque em grandes enfermidades o deixaram), seus servos conspiraram contra ele, por causa do sangue do filho do sacerdote Joiada, e o mataram na sua cama, e morreu; e o sepultaram na Cidade de Davi, porém não o sepultaram nos sepulcros dos reis.

26 Those who made designs against him were Zabad, the son of Shimeath, an Ammonite woman, and Jehozabad, the son of Shimrith, a Moabite woman.
26 Estes, pois, foram os que conspiraram contra ele: Zabade, filho de Simeate, a amonita, e Jozabade, filho de Sinrite, a moabita.

27 Now the story of his sons, and all the words said by the prophet against him, and the building up again of the Lord’s house, are recorded in the account in the book of the kings. And Amaziah his son became king in his place.
27 E, quanto a seus filhos, e à grandeza do cargo que se lhe impôs, e ao estabelecimento da Casa de Deus, eis que está escrito no livro da história dos reis. E Amazias, seu filho, reinou em seu lugar.

2 Chronicles 25

1 Amaziah was twenty-five years old when he became king, and he was ruling in Jerusalem for twenty-nine years; his mother’s name was Jehoaddan of Jerusalem.
1 Era Amazias da idade de vinte e cinco anos quando começou a reinar e reinou vinte e nove anos em Jerusalém; e era o nome de sua mãe Jeoadã, de Jerusalém.

2 He did what was right in the eyes of the Lord, but his heart was not completely true to the Lord.
2 E fez o que era reto aos olhos do SENHOR, porém não com coração inteiro.

3 Now when he became strong in the kingdom, he put to death those men who had taken the life of the king his father.
3 Sucedeu, pois, que, sendo-lhe o reino já confirmado, matou os seus servos que feriram o rei, seu pai;

4 But he did not put their children to death, for he kept the orders of the Lord recorded in the book of the law of Moses, saying, The fathers are not to be put to death for their children or the children for their fathers, but a man is to be put to death for the sin which he himself has done.
4 porém não matou os seus filhos, mas fez como na Lei está escrito, no livro de Moisés, como o SENHOR ordenou, dizendo: Não morrerão os pais pelos filhos, nem os filhos morrerão pelos pais; mas cada um morrerá pelo seu pecado.

5 Then Amaziah got all Judah together and put them in order by their families, even all Judah and Benjamin, under captains of thousands and captains of hundreds: and he had those of twenty years old and over numbered, and they came to three hundred thousand of the best fighting-men, trained for war and in the use of the spear and the body-cover.
5 E Amazias ajuntou a Judá e o pôs segundo as casas dos pais, por chefes de milhares e por chefes de centenas, por todo o Judá e Benjamim; e os numerou de vinte anos e daí para cima e achou deles trezentos mil escolhidos que saíam ao exército e levavam lança e escudo.

6 And for a hundred talents of silver, he got a hundred thousand fighting-men from Israel.
6 Também de Israel tomou a soldo cem mil varões valentes, por cem talentos de prata.

7 But a man of God came to him, saying, O king, let not the army of Israel go with you; for the Lord is not with Israel, that is, the children of Ephraim.
7 Porém um homem de Deus veio a ele, dizendo: Ó rei, não deixes ir contigo o exército de Israel, porque o SENHOR não é com Israel, a saber, com os filhos de Efraim.

8 But go yourself, and be strong in war; God will not let you go down before those who are fighting against you; for God has power to give help or to send you down before your attackers.
8 Se porém, fores, faze-o, esforça-te para a peleja; Deus te fará cair diante do inimigo, porque força há em Deus para ajudar e para fazer cair.

9 Then Amaziah said to the man of God, But what is to be done about the hundred talents which I have given for the armed band of Israel? And the man of God in answer said, God is able to give you much more than this.
9 E disse Amazias ao homem de Deus: Que se fará, pois, dos cem talentos de prata que dei às tropas de Israel? E disse o homem de Deus: Mais tem o SENHOR que te dar do que isso.

10 So Amaziah, separating the armed band which had come to him from Ephraim, sent them back again; which made them very angry with Judah, and they went back burning with wrath.
10 Então, separou Amazias as tropas que lhe tinham vindo de Efraim, para que se fossem ao seu lugar; pelo que se acendeu a sua ira contra Judá, e voltaram para o seu lugar em ardor de ira.

11 Then Amaziah took heart, and went out at the head of his people and came to the Valley of Salt, where he put to death ten thousand of the children of Seir;
11 Esforçou-se, pois, Amazias, e conduziu o seu povo, e foi-se ao vale do Sal; e feriu dos filhos de Seir dez mil.

12 And ten thousand more the children of Israel took living, and made them go up to the top of the rock, pushing them down from the top of the rock so that their bodies were broken by the fall.
12 Também os filhos de Judá prenderam vivos dez mil, e os trouxeram ao cume da rocha, e do mais alto da rocha os lançaram abaixo, e todos arrebentaram.

13 But the men of the band which Amaziah sent back and did not take with him to the fight, made attacks on the towns of Judah from Samaria to Beth-horon, putting to death three thousand of their people and taking away a great store of their goods.
13 Porém os homens das tropas que Amazias despedira para que não fossem com ele à peleja deram sobre as cidades de Judá, desde Samaria até Bete-Horom; e feriram deles três mil e saquearam grande despojo.

14 Now when Amaziah came back from the destruction of the Edomites, he took the gods of the children of Seir and made them his gods, worshipping them and burning offerings before them.
14 E sucedeu que, depois que Amazias veio da matança dos edomitas, trouxe consigo os deuses dos filhos de Seir, tomou-os por seus deuses, e prostrou-se diante deles, e queimou-lhes incenso.

15 And so the wrath of the Lord was moved against Amaziah, and he sent a prophet to him, who said, Why have you gone after the gods of the people who have not given their people salvation from your hands?
15 Então, a ira do SENHOR se acendeu contra Amazias, e mandou-lhe um profeta, que lhe disse: Por que buscaste deuses do povo, que a seu povo não livraram das tuas mãos?

16 But while he was talking to him the king said to him, Have we made you one of the king’s government? say no more, or it will be the cause of your death. Then the prophet gave up protesting, and said, It is clear to me that God’s purpose is your destruction, because you have done this and have not given ear to my words.
16 E sucedeu que, falando-lhe ele, lhe respondeu: Puseram-te por conselheiro do rei? Cala-te, por que te feririam? Então, o profeta parou e disse: Bem vejo eu que já Deus deliberou destruir-te, porquanto fizeste isso e não deste ouvidos a meu conselho.

17 Then Amaziah, king of Judah, acting on the suggestion of his servants, sent to Joash, the son of Jehoahaz, the son of Jehu, king of Israel, saying, Come, let us have a meeting face to face.
17 E, tendo tomado conselho, Amazias, rei de Judá, enviou a Joás, filho de Jeoacaz, filho de Jeú, rei de Israel, a dizer: Vem, vejamo-nos face a face.

18 And Joash, king of Israel, sent to Amaziah, king of Judah, saying, The thorn-tree in Lebanon sent to the cedar in Lebanon, saying, Give your daughter to my son for a wife: and a beast from the woodland in Lebanon went by, crushing the thorn under his feet.
18 Porém Joás, rei de Israel, mandou dizer a Amazias, rei de Judá: O cardo que estava no Líbano mandou dizer ao cedro que estava no Líbano: Dá tua filha a meu filho por mulher; porém os animais do campo que estão no Líbano passaram e pisaram o cardo.

19 You say, See, I have overcome Edom; and your heart is lifted up with pride: now keep in your country; why do you make causes of trouble, putting yourself, and Judah with you, in danger of downfall?
19 Tu dizes: Eis que tenho ferido os edomitas, e elevou-se o teu coração, para te gloriares; agora, pois, fica em tua casa; por que te meterias no mal, para caíres tu e Judá contigo?

20 But Amaziah gave no attention; and this was the purpose of God, so that he might give them up into the hands of Joash, because they had gone after the gods of Edom.
20 Porém Amazias não lhe deu ouvidos, porque isto vinha de Deus, para entregá-los nas mãos dos seus inimigos, porquanto buscaram os deuses dos edomitas.

21 And so Joash, king of Israel, went up; and he and Amaziah, king of Judah, came face to face at Beth-shemesh in Judah.
21 E Joás, rei de Israel, subiu; e ele e Amazias, rei de Judá, viram-se face a face em Bete-Semes, que está em Judá.

22 And Judah was overcome before Israel, and they went in flight, every man to his tent.
22 E Judá foi ferido diante de Israel, e foi cada um para as suas tendas.

23 And Joash, king of Israel, made Amaziah, king of Judah, the son of Joash, the son of Jehoahaz, prisoner at Beth-shemesh, and took him to Jerusalem; and he had the wall of Jerusalem pulled down from the doorway of Ephraim to the doorway in the angle, four hundred cubits.
23 E Joás, rei de Israel, prendeu a Amazias, rei de Judá, filho de Joás, o filho de Jeoacaz, em Bete-Semes, e o trouxe a Jerusalém; e derribou o muro de Jerusalém, desde a Porta de Efraim até à Porta da Esquina, um trecho de quatrocentos côvados.

24 And he took all the gold and silver and all the vessels which were in the house of the Lord, under the care of Obed-edom, and all the wealth from the king’s house, as well as those whose lives would be the price of broken faith, and went back to Samaria.
24 Também tomou todo o ouro, e a prata, e todos os utensílios que se acharam na Casa de Deus com Obede-Edom, e os tesouros da casa do rei, e os reféns e voltou para Samaria.

25 Amaziah, son of Joash, king of Judah, went on living for fifteen years after the death of Joash, the son of Jehoahaz, king of Israel.
25 E viveu Amazias, filho de Joás, rei de Judá, depois da morte de Joás, filho de Jeoacaz, rei de Israel, quinze anos.

26 Now the rest of the acts of Amaziah, first and last, are they not recorded in the book of the kings of Judah and Israel?
26 Quanto ao mais dos atos de Amazias, tanto os primeiros como os últimos, eis que, porventura, não estão escritos no livro da história dos reis de Judá e de Israel?

27 Now from the time when Amaziah gave up worshipping the Lord, they made secret designs against him in Jerusalem; and he went in flight to Lachish: but they sent to Lachish after him and put him to death there.
27 E, desde o tempo que Amazias se desviou do SENHOR, conspiraram contra ele em Jerusalém, porém ele fugiu para Laquis; mas enviaram após ele a Laquis e o mataram ali.

28 And they took his body on horseback and put it into the earth with his fathers in the town of David.
28 E o trouxeram sobre cavalos e o sepultaram com seus pais na Cidade de Davi.

2 Chronicles 26

1 Then all the people of Judah took Uzziah, who was sixteen years old, and made him king in place of his father Amaziah.
1 Então, todo o povo tomou a Uzias, que era da idade de dezesseis anos, e o fez rei em lugar de Amazias, seu pai.

2 He was the builder of Eloth, which he got back for Judah after the death of the king.
2 Este edificou a Elate e a restituiu a Judá, depois que o rei adormeceu com seus pais.

3 Uzziah was sixteen years old when he became king, and he was ruling in Jerusalem for fifty-two years; his mother’s name was Jechiliah of Jerusalem.
3 Era Uzias da idade de dezesseis anos quando começou a reinar e cinqüenta e cinco anos reinou em Jerusalém; e era o nome de sua mãe Jecolias, de Jerusalém.

4 He did what was right in the eyes of the Lord, as his father Amaziah had done.
4 E fez o que era reto aos olhos do SENHOR, conforme tudo o que fizera Amazias, seu pai.

5 He gave himself to searching after God in the days of Zechariah, who made men wise in the fear of God; and as long as he was true to the Lord, God made things go well for him.
5 Porque deu-se a buscar a Deus nos dias de Zacarias, sábio nas visões de Deus; e, nos dias em que buscou o SENHOR, Deus o fez prosperar.

6 He went out and made war against the Philistines, pulling down the walls of Gath and Jabneh and Ashdod, and building towns in the country round Ashdod and among the Philistines.
6 Porque saiu, e guerreou contra os filisteus, e quebrou o muro de Gate, e o muro de Jabné, e o muro de Asdode, e edificou cidades em Asdode e entre os filisteus.

7 And God gave him help against the Philistines, and against the Arabians living in Gur-baal, and against the Meunim.
7 E Deus o ajudou contra os filisteus, e contra os arábios que habitavam em Gur-Baal, e contra os meunitas.

8 The Ammonites gave offerings to Uzziah: and news of him went out as far as the limit of Egypt; for he became very great in power.
8 E os amonitas deram presentes a Uzias, e o seu renome foi espalhado até à entrada do Egito, porque se fortificou altamente.

9 Uzziah made towers in Jerusalem, at the doorway in the angle and at the doorway in the valley and at the turn of the wall, arming them.
9 Também Uzias edificou torres em Jerusalém, à Porta da Esquina, à Porta do Vale e aos ângulos e as fortificou.

10 And he put up towers in the waste land and made places for storing water, for he had much cattle, in the low hills and in the table land; and he had farmers and vine-keepers in the mountains and in the fertile land, for he was a lover of farming.
10 Também edificou torres no deserto e cavou muitos poços, porque tinha muito gado, tanto nos vales como nas campinas, lavradores e vinhateiros, nos montes e nos campos férteis, porque era amigo da agricultura.

11 In addition, Uzziah had an army of fighting-men who went out to war in bands, as they had been listed by Jeiel the scribe and Maaseiah the ruler, under the authority of Hananiah, one of the king’s captains.
11 Tinha também Uzias um exército de homens destros nas armas, que saíam à guerra, em tropas, segundo o número da lista feita por mão de Jeiel, chanceler, e Maaséias, oficial, debaixo das mãos de Hananias, um dos príncipes do rei.

12 The heads of families, the strong men of war, were two thousand, six hundred.
12 Todo o número dos chefes dos pais, varões valentes, era de dois mil e seiscentos.

13 And under their orders was a trained army of three hundred and seven thousand, five hundred, of great strength in war, helping the king against any who came against him.
13 E, debaixo das suas ordens, havia um exército guerreiro de trezentos e sete mil e quinhentos homens, que faziam a guerra com força belicosa, para ajudar o rei contra os inimigos.

14 And Uzziah had all these forces armed with body-covers and spears and head-covers and coats of metal and bows and stones for sending from leather bands.
14 E preparou-lhes Uzias, para todo o exército, escudos, e lanças, e capacetes, e couraças, e arcos, e até fundas para atirar pedras.

15 And in Jerusalem he made machines, the invention of expert men, to be placed on the towers and angles of the walls for sending arrows and great stones. And his name was honoured far and wide; for he was greatly helped till he was strong.
15 Também fez em Jerusalém máquinas da invenção de engenheiros, que estivessem nas torres e nos cantos, para atirarem flechas e grandes pedras; e voou a sua fama até muito longe, porque foi maravilhosamente ajudado até que se tornou forte.

16 But when he had become strong, his heart was lifted up in pride, causing his destruction; and he did evil against the Lord his God; for he went into the Temple of the Lord for the purpose of burning perfumes on the altar of perfumes.
16 Mas, havendo-se já fortificado, exaltou-se o seu coração até se corromper; e transgrediu contra o SENHOR, seu Deus, porque entrou no templo do SENHOR para queimar incenso no altar do incenso.

17 And Azariah the priest went in after him, with eighty of the Lord’s priests, who were strong men;
17 Porém o sacerdote Azarias entrou após ele, e, com ele, oitenta sacerdotes do SENHOR, varões valentes.

18 And they made protests to Uzziah the king, and said to him, The burning of perfumes, Uzziah, is not your business but that of the priests, the sons of Aaron, who have been made holy for this work: go out of the holy place, for you have done wrong, and it will not be to your honour before God.
18 E resistiram ao rei Uzias e lhe disseram: A ti, Uzias, não compete queimar incenso perante o SENHOR, mas aos sacerdotes, filhos de Arão, que são consagrados para queimar incenso; sai do santuário, porque transgrediste; e não será isso para honra tua da parte do SENHOR Deus.

19 Then Uzziah was angry; and he had in his hand a vessel for burning perfume; and while his wrath was bitter against the priests, the mark of the leper’s disease came out on his brow, before the eyes of the priests in the house of the Lord by the altar of perfumes.
19 Então, Uzias se indignou e tinha o incensário na sua mão para queimar incenso; indignando-se ele, pois, contra os sacerdotes, a lepra lhe saiu à testa perante os sacerdotes, na Casa do SENHOR, junto ao altar do incenso.

20 And Azariah, the chief priest, and all the priests, looking at him, saw the mark of the leper on his brow, and they sent him out quickly and he himself went out straight away, for the Lord’s punishment had come on him.
20 Então, o sumo sacerdote Azarias olhou para ele, como também todos os sacerdotes, e eis que já estava leproso na sua testa, e apressuradamente o lançaram fora; e até ele mesmo se deu pressa a sair, visto que o SENHOR o ferira.

21 So King Uzziah was a leper till the day of his death, living separately in his private house; for he was cut off from the house of God; and Jotham his son was ruling over his house, judging the people of the land.
21 Assim ficou leproso o rei Uzias até ao dia da sua morte; e morou, por ser leproso, numa casa separada, porque foi excluído da Casa do SENHOR; e Jotão, seu filho, tinha a seu cargo a casa do rei, julgando o povo da terra.

22 Now the rest of the acts of Uzziah, first and last, were recorded by Isaiah the prophet, the son of Amoz.
22 Quanto ao mais dos atos de Uzias, tanto os primeiros como os derradeiros, o profeta Isaías, filho de Amoz, o escreveu.

23 So Uzziah went to rest with his fathers; and they put his body into the earth in the field used for the resting-place of the kings, for they said, He is a leper: and Jotham his son became king in his place.
23 E dormiu Uzias com seus pais, e o sepultaram com seus pais no campo do sepulcro que era dos reis, porque disseram: Leproso é. E Jotão, seu filho, reinou em seu lugar.

2 Chronicles 27

1 Jotham was twenty-five years old when he became king; and he was ruling in Jerusalem for sixteen years; and his mother’s name was Jerushah, the daughter of Zadok.
1 Tinha Jotão vinte e cinco anos de idade quando começou a reinar e dezesseis anos reinou em Jerusalém; e era o nome de sua mãe Jerusa, filha de Zadoque.

2 He did what was right in the eyes of the Lord, as his father Uzziah had done; but he did not go into the Temple of the Lord. And the people still went on in their evil ways.
2 E fez o que era reto aos olhos do SENHOR, conforme tudo o que fizera Uzias, seu pai, exceto que não entrou no templo do SENHOR, e ainda o povo se corrompia.

3 He put up the higher doorway of the house of the Lord, and did much building on the wall of the Ophel.
3 Ele edificou a Porta Alta da Casa do SENHOR e edificou muito sobre o muro de Ofel.

4 In addition, he made towns in the hill-country of Judah, and strong buildings and towers in the woodlands.
4 Edificou cidades nas montanhas de Judá e edificou nos bosques castelos e torres.

5 He went to war with the king of the children of Ammon and overcame them. That year, the children of Ammon gave him a hundred talents of silver, and ten thousand measures of grain and ten thousand measures of barley. And the children of Ammon gave him the same amount the second year and the third.
5 Ele também guerreou contra o rei dos filhos de Amom e prevaleceu sobre eles, de modo que os filhos de Amom, naquele ano, lhe deram cem talentos de prata, e dez mil coros de trigo, e dez mil de cevada; isso lhe trouxeram os filhos de Amom também no segundo e no terceiro ano.

6 So Jotham became strong, because in all his ways he made the Lord his guide.
6 Assim se fortificou Jotão, porque dirigiu os seus caminhos na presença do SENHOR, seu Deus.

7 Now the rest of the acts of Jotham, and all his wars and his ways, are recorded in the book of the kings of Israel and Judah.
7 O resto, pois, dos atos de Jotão, e todas as suas guerras, e os seus caminhos, eis que tudo está escrito no livro da história dos reis de Israel e de Judá.

8 He was twenty-five years old when he became king, and he was ruling in Jerusalem for sixteen years.
8 Tinha vinte e cinco anos de idade quando começou a reinar e dezesseis anos reinou em Jerusalém.

9 And Jotham went to rest with his fathers, and they put his body into the earth in the town of David; and Ahaz his son became king in his place.
9 E dormiu Jotão com seus pais, e o sepultaram na Cidade de Davi; e Acaz, seu filho, reinou em seu lugar.

2 Chronicles 28

1 Ahaz was twenty years old when he became king, and he was ruling in Jerusalem for sixteen years; he did not do what was right in the eyes of the Lord, like David his father:
1 Tinha Acaz vinte anos de idade quando começou a reinar e dezesseis anos reinou em Jerusalém; e não fez o que era reto aos olhos do SENHOR, como Davi, seu pai.

2 But he went in the ways of the kings of Israel and made images of metal for the Baals.
2 Antes, andou nos caminhos dos reis de Israel e, demais disso, fez imagens fundidas a baalins.

3 More than this, he had offerings burned in the valley of the son of Hinnom, and made his children go through fire, copying the disgusting ways of the nations whom the Lord had sent out of the land before the children of Israel.
3 Também queimou incenso no vale do Filho de Hinom, e queimou os seus filhos, conforme as abominações dos gentios que o SENHOR tinha desterrado de diante dos filhos de Israel.

4 And he made offerings and had perfumes burned in the high places and on the hills and under every green tree.
4 Também sacrificou e queimou incenso nos altos e nos outeiros, como também debaixo de toda árvore verde.

5 So the Lord his God gave him up into the hands of the king of Aram; and they overcame him, and took away a great number of his people as prisoners to Damascus. Then he was given into the hands of the king of Israel, who sent great destruction on him.
5 Pelo que o SENHOR, seu Deus, o entregou nas mãos do rei dos siros, os quais o feriram e levaram dele em cativeiro uma grande multidão de presos, que trouxeram a Damasco; também foi entregue nas mãos do rei de Israel, o qual o feriu com grande ferida.

6 For Pekah, the son of Remaliah, in one day put to death a hundred and twenty thousand men of Judah, all of them good fighting-men; because they had given up the Lord, the God of their fathers.
6 Porque Peca, filho de Remalias, matou num dia em Judá cento e vinte mil, todos homens belicosos, porquanto deixaram o SENHOR, Deus de seus pais.

7 And Zichri, a great fighting-man of Ephraim, put to death Maaseiah, the king’s son, and Azrikam, the controller of his house, and Elkanah, who was second in authority to the king.
7 E Zicri, varão potente de Efraim, matou a Maaséias, filho do rei, e a Azricão, o mordomo, e a Elcana, o segundo depois do rei.

8 And the children of Israel took away as prisoners from their brothers, two hundred thousand, women and sons and daughters, and a great store of their goods, and took them to Samaria.
8 E os filhos de Israel levaram presos de seus irmãos duzentos mil, mulheres, filhos e filhas; e saquearam também deles grande despojo e trouxeram o despojo para Samaria.

9 But a prophet of the Lord was there, named Oded; and he went out in front of the army which was coming into Samaria and said to them, Truly, because the Lord, the God of your fathers, was angry with Judah, he gave them up into your hands, and you have put them to death in an outburst of wrath stretching up to heaven.
9 E estava ali um profeta do SENHOR cujo nome era Obede, o qual saiu ao encontro do exército que vinha para Samaria e lhe disse: Eis que, irando-se o SENHOR, Deus de vossos pais, contra Judá, os entregou nas vossas mãos, e vós os matastes com uma raiva tal, que chegou até aos céus.

10 And now your purpose is to keep the children of Judah and Jerusalem as men-servants and women-servants under your yoke: but are there no sins against the Lord your God to be seen among yourselves?
10 E, agora, vós cuidais em sujeitar a vós os filhos de Judá e Jerusalém, como cativos e cativas; porventura, não sois vós mesmos aqueles entre os quais há culpas contra o SENHOR, vosso Deus?

11 And now give ear to me, and send back the prisoners whom you have taken from your brothers: for the wrath of the Lord is burning against you.
11 Agora, pois, ouvi-me e tornai a enviar os prisioneiros que trouxestes presos de vossos irmãos, porque o ardor da ira do SENHOR está sobre vós.

12 Then certain of the heads of the children of Ephraim, Azariah, the son of Johanan, Berechiah, the son of Meshillemoth Jehizkiah, the son of Shallum, and Amasa the son of Hadlai, put themselves against those who had come from the war,
12 Então, alguns homens dentre os chefes dos filhos de Efraim, Azarias, filho de Joanã, Berequias, filho de Mesilemote, e Jeizquias, filho de Salum, e Amasa, filho de Hadlai, se levantaram contra os que voltavam da batalha.

13 And said to them, You are not to let these prisoners come here; for what you are designing to do will be a cause of sin against the Lord to us, making even greater our sin and our wrongdoing, which now are great enough, and his wrath is burning against Israel.
13 E lhes disseram: Não fareis entrar aqui estes presos, porque, em relação à nossa culpa contra o SENHOR, vós intentais acrescentar mais a nossos pecados e a nossas culpas, sendo que já temos tanta culpa, e já o ardor da ira está sobre Israel.

14 So the armed men gave up the prisoners and the goods they had taken to the heads and the meeting of the people.
14 Então, os homens armados deixaram os presos e o despojo diante dos maiorais e de toda a congregação.

15 And those men who have been named went up and took the prisoners, clothing those among them who were uncovered, with things from the goods which had been taken in the war, and putting robes on them and shoes on their feet; and they gave them food and drink and oil for their bodies, and seating all the feeble among them on asses, they took them to Jericho, the town of palm-trees, to their people, and then went back to Samaria.
15 E os homens que foram apontados por seus nomes se levantaram, e tomaram os presos, e vestiram do despojo a todos os que dentre eles estavam nus; e os vestiram, e os calçaram, e lhes deram de comer e de beber, e os ungiram; e a todos os que estavam fracos levaram sobre jumentos e os levaram a Jericó, a Cidade das Palmeiras, a seus irmãos; depois, voltaram para Samaria.

16 At that time King Ahaz sent for help to the king of Assyria.
16 Naquele tempo, o rei Acaz mandou pedir aos reis da Assíria, que o ajudassem.

17 For the Edomites had come again, attacking Judah and taking away prisoners.
17 Além disso, também os edomitas vieram, e feriram a Judá, e levaram presos em cativeiro.

18 And the Philistines, forcing their way into the towns of the lowlands and the south of Judah, had taken Beth-shemesh and Aijalon and Gederoth and Soco, with their daughter-towns, as well as Timnah and Gimzo and their daughter-towns, and were living there.
18 Também os filisteus deram sobre as cidades da campina e do Sul de Judá e tomaram Bete-Semes, e Aijalom, e Gederote, e Socó, e os lugares da sua jurisdição, e Timna, e os lugares da sua jurisdição, e Ginzo, e os lugares da sua jurisdição; e habitaram ali.

19 For the Lord made Judah low, because of Ahaz, king of Israel; for he had given up all self-control in Judah, sinning greatly against the Lord.
19 Porque o SENHOR humilhou a Judá por causa de Acaz, rei de Israel, porque Acaz desviara a Judá, que de todo se dera a prevaricar contra o SENHOR.

20 Then Tiglath-pileser, king of Assyria, came to him, but was a cause of trouble and not of strength to him.
20 E veio a ele Tiglate-Pileser, rei da Assíria; porém o pôs em aperto e não o fortaleceu.

21 For Ahaz took a part of the wealth from the house of the Lord, and from the house of the king and of the great men, and gave it to the king of Assyria; but it was no help to him.
21 Porque Acaz tomou uma porção da Casa do SENHOR, e da casa do rei, e dos príncipes e a deu ao rei da Assíria; porém não o ajudou.

22 And in the time of his trouble, this same King Ahaz did even more evil against the Lord.
22 E, ao tempo em que este o apertou, então, ainda mais transgrediu contra o SENHOR; ele mesmo, o rei Acaz.

23 For he made offerings to the gods of Damascus, who were attacking him, and said, Because the gods of the kings of Aram are giving them help, I will make offerings to them so that they may give me help. But they were the cause of his downfall, and of that of all Israel.
23 Porque sacrificou aos deuses de Damasco, que o feriram, e disse: Visto que os deuses dos reis da Síria os ajudam, eu lhes sacrificarei, para que me ajudem. Porém eles foram a sua ruína e de todo o Israel.

24 And Ahaz got together the vessels of the house of God, cutting up all the vessels of the house of God, and shutting the doors of the Lord’s house; and he made altars in every part of Jerusalem.
24 E ajuntou Acaz os utensílios da Casa de Deus, e os fez em pedaços, e fechou as portas da Casa do SENHOR, e fez para si altares em todos os cantos de Jerusalém.

25 And in every town of Judah he made high places where perfumes were burned to other gods, awaking the wrath of the Lord, the God of his fathers.
25 Também em cada cidade de Judá fez altos para queimar incenso a outros deuses; assim provocou à ira o SENHOR, Deus de seus pais.

26 Now the rest of his acts and all his ways, first and last, are recorded in the book of the kings of Judah and Israel.
26 O resto, pois, de seus atos e de todos os seus caminhos, tanto os primeiros como os derradeiros, eis que está escrito no livro da história dos reis de Judá e de Israel.

27 And Ahaz went to rest with his fathers, and they put his body into the earth in Jerusalem; but they did not put him in the resting-place of the kings of Israel: and Hezekiah his son became king in his place.
27 E dormiu Acaz com seus pais, e o sepultaram na cidade, em Jerusalém, porém não o puseram nos sepulcros dos reis de Israel; e Ezequias, seu filho, reinou em seu lugar.

2 Chronicles 29

1 Hezekiah became king when he was twenty-five years old; and he was king in Jerusalem for twenty-nine years; and his mother’s name was Abijah, the daughter of Zechariah.
1 Tinha Ezequias vinte e cinco anos de idade quando começou a reinar e reinou vinte e nove anos em Jerusalém; e era o nome de sua mãe Abia, filha de Zacarias.

2 He did what was right in the eyes of the Lord, as his father David had done.
2 E fez o que era reto aos olhos do SENHOR, conforme tudo quanto fizera Davi, seu pai.

3 In the first year of his rule, in the first month, opening the doors of the Lord’s house, he made them strong.
3 Ele, no ano primeiro do seu reinado, no mês primeiro, abriu as portas da Casa do SENHOR e as reparou.

4 And he sent for the priests and the Levites, and got them together in the wide place on the east side,
4 E trouxe os sacerdotes e os levitas, e os ajuntou na praça oriental,

5 And said to them, Give ear to me, O Levites: now make yourselves holy, and make holy the house of the Lord, the God of your fathers, and take away everything unclean from the holy place.
5 e lhes disse: Ouvi-me, ó levitas! Santificai-vos, agora, e santificai a Casa do SENHOR, Deus de vossos pais, e tirai do santuário a imundícia.

6 For our fathers have done evil, sinning in the eyes of the Lord our God, and have given him up, turning away their faces from the house of the Lord, and turning their backs on him.
6 Porque nossos pais transgrediram, e fizeram o que era mal aos olhos do SENHOR, nosso Deus, e o deixaram; e desviaram o rosto do tabernáculo do SENHOR e lhe voltaram as costas.

7 The doors of his house have been shut and the lights put out; no perfumes have been burned or offerings made to the God of Israel in his holy place.
7 Também fecharam as portas do alpendre, e apagaram as lâmpadas, e não queimaram incenso, nem ofereceram holocaustos no santuário ao Deus de Israel.

8 And so the wrath of the Lord has come on Judah and Jerusalem, and he has given them up to be a cause of fear and wonder and shame, as your eyes have seen.
8 Pelo que veio grande ira do SENHOR sobre Judá e Jerusalém, e os entregou à perturbação, à assolação, e ao assobio, como vós o estais vendo com os vossos olhos.

9 For see, our fathers have been put to death with the sword, and our sons and daughters and wives have been taken away prisoners because of this.
9 Porque eis que nossos pais caíram à espada, e nossos filhos, e nossas filhas, e nossas mulheres estiveram por isso em cativeiro.

10 Now it is my purpose to make an agreement with the Lord, the God of Israel, so that the heat of his wrath may be turned away from us.
10 Agora, me tem vindo ao coração que façamos um concerto com o SENHOR, Deus de Israel; para que se desvie de nós o ardor na sua ira.

11 My sons, take care now: for you have been marked out by the Lord to come before him and to be his servants, burning offerings to him.
11 Agora, filhos meus, não sejais negligentes, pois o SENHOR vos tem escolhido para estardes diante dele para os servirdes, e para serdes seus ministros, e para queimardes incenso.

12 Then the Levites took their places; Mahath, the son of Amasai, and Joel, the son of Azariah, among the Kohathites; and of the sons of Merari, Kish, the son of Abdi, and Azariah, the son of Jehallelel; and of the Gershonites, Joah, the son of Zimmah, and Eden, the son of Joah;
12 Então, se levantaram os levitas Maate, filho de Amasai, e Joel, filho de Azarias, dos filhos dos coatitas; e, dos filhos de Merari, Quis, filho de Abdi, e Azarias, filho de Jealelel; e, dos gersonitas, Joá, filho de Zima, e Éden, filho de Joá;

13 And of the sons of Elizaphan, Shimri and Jeuel; and of the sons of Asaph, Zechariah and Mattaniah;
13 e, dentre os filhos de Elisafã, Sinri e Jeiel; e, dentre os filhos de Asafe, Zacarias e Matanias;

14 And of the sons of Heman, Jehuel and Shimei; and of the sons of Jeduthun, Shemaiah and Uzziel.
14 e, dentre os filhos de Hemã, Jeiel e Simei; e, dentre os filhos de Jedutum, Semaías e Uziel.

15 And they got their brothers together and made themselves holy, and went in, as the king had said by the word of the Lord, to make the house of the Lord clean.
15 E ajuntaram seus irmãos, e santificaram-se, e vieram conforme o mandado do rei, pelas palavras do SENHOR, para purificarem a Casa do SENHOR.

16 And the priests went into the inner part of the house of the Lord to make it clean, and everything unclean which was to be seen in the Temple of the Lord they took out into the outer square of the Lord’s house, and the Levites got it together and took it away to the stream Kidron.
16 E os sacerdotes entraram dentro da Casa do SENHOR, para a purificar, e tiraram para fora, ao pátio da Casa do SENHOR, toda a imundícia que acharam no templo do SENHOR; e os levitas a tomaram, para a levarem para fora, ao ribeiro de Cedrom.

17 On the first day of the first month the work of making the house holy was started, and on the eighth day they came to the covered way of the Lord; in eight days they made the Lord’s house holy, and on the sixteenth day of the first month the work was done.
17 Começaram, pois, a santificar ao primeiro do mês primeiro, e, ao oitavo dia do mês, vieram ao alpendre do SENHOR e santificaram a Casa do SENHOR em oito dias; e, no dia décimo sexto do primeiro mês, acabaram.

18 Then they went in to King Hezekiah and said, We have made all the house of the Lord clean, as well as the altar of burned offerings with all its vessels, and the table for the holy bread, with all its vessels.
18 Então, entraram para dentro, ao rei Ezequias, e disseram: Já purificamos toda a Casa do SENHOR, como também o altar do holocausto com todos os seus utensílios e a mesa da proposição com todos os seus objetos.

19 And all the vessels which were turned out by King Ahaz in his sin while he was king, we have put in order and made holy, and now they are in their places before the altar of the Lord.
19 Também todos os objetos que o rei Acaz, no seu reinado, lançou fora, na sua transgressão, já preparamos e santificamos; e eis que estão diante do altar do SENHOR.

20 Then Hezekiah the king got up early, and got together the great men of the town, and went up to the house of the Lord.
20 Então, o rei Ezequias se levantou de madrugada, e ajuntou os maiorais da cidade, e subiu à Casa do SENHOR.

21 And they took with them seven oxen and seven male sheep and seven lambs and seven he-goats as a sin-offering for the kingdom and for the holy house and for Judah. And he gave orders to the sons of Aaron, the priests, that these were to be offered on the altar of the Lord.
21 E trouxeram sete novilhos, e sete carneiros, e sete cordeiros, e sete bodes, para sacrifício expiatório, pelo reino, e pelo santuário, e por Judá, e Ezequias disse aos filhos de Arão, os sacerdotes, que os oferecessem sobre o altar do SENHOR.

22 So they put the oxen to death and their blood was given to the priests to be drained out against the altar; then they put the male sheep to death, draining out their blood against the altar, and they put the lambs to death, draining out their blood against the altar.
22 E eles mataram os bois, e os sacerdotes tomaram o sangue e o aspergiram sobre o altar; também mataram os carneiros, e aspergiram o sangue sobre o altar; semelhantemente, mataram os cordeiros e aspergiram o sangue sobre o altar.

23 Then they took the he-goats for the sin-offering, placing them before the king and the meeting of the people, and they put their hands on them:
23 Então, trouxeram os bodes para sacrifício pelo pecado, perante o rei e a congregação, e lhes impuseram as mãos.

24 And the priests put them to death, and made a sin-offering with their blood on the altar, to take away the sin of all Israel: for the king gave orders that the burned offering and the sin-offering were for all Israel.
24 E os sacerdotes os mataram e, com o seu sangue, fizeram expiação do pecado sobre o altar, para reconciliar a todo o Israel, porque o rei tinha ordenado que se fizesse aquele holocausto e sacrifício pelo pecado por todo o Israel.

25 Then he put the Levites in their places in the house of the Lord, with brass and corded instruments of music as ordered by David and Gad, the king’s seer, and Nathan the prophet: for the order was the Lord’s, given by his prophets.
25 E pôs os levitas na Casa do SENHOR com címbalos, com alaúdes e com harpas, conforme o mandado de Davi e de Gade, o vidente do rei, e do profeta Natã, porque este mandado veio do SENHOR, por mão de seus profetas.

26 So the Levites took their places with David’s instruments, and the priests with their horns.
26 Estavam, pois, os levitas em pé com os instrumentos de Davi, e os sacerdotes, com as trombetas.

27 And Hezekiah gave the word for the burned offering to be offered on the altar. And when the burned offering was started, then the song of the Lord was started, with the blowing of horns and with all the instruments of David, king of Israel.
27 E deu ordem Ezequias que oferecessem o holocausto sobre o altar, e, ao tempo em que começou o holocausto, começou também o canto do SENHOR, com as trombetas e com os instrumentos de Davi, rei de Israel.

28 And all the people gave worship, to the sound of songs and the blowing of horns; and this went on till the burned offering was ended.
28 E toda a congregação se prostrou quando cantavam o canto, e as trombetas tocavam; tudo isso, até o holocausto se acabar.

29 And at the end of the offering, the king and all who were present with him gave worship with bent heads.
29 E, acabando de o oferecer, o rei e todos quantos com ele se acharam se prostraram e adoraram.

30 Then King Hezekiah and the captains gave orders to the Levites to give praise to God in the words of David and Asaph the seer. And they made songs of praise with joy, and with bent heads gave worship.
30 Então, o rei Ezequias e os maiorais disseram aos levitas que louvassem ao SENHOR com as palavras de Davi e de Asafe, o vidente. E o louvaram com alegria, e se inclinaram, e adoraram.

31 Then Hezekiah made answer and said, Now that you have given yourselves to the Lord, come near and take offerings and praise-offerings into the house of the Lord. So all the people took in offerings and praise-offerings: and those whose hearts were moved, took in burned offerings.
31 E respondeu Ezequias e disse: Agora, vos consagrastes ao SENHOR; chegai-vos e trazei sacrifícios e ofertas de louvor à Casa do SENHOR. E a congregação trouxe sacrifícios e ofertas de louvor, e todo o que tinha essa vontade do coração trouxe holocaustos.

32 The number of burned offerings which the people took in was seventy oxen, a hundred male sheep, and two hundred lambs: all these were for burned offerings to the Lord.
32 E o número dos holocaustos que a congregação trouxe foi de setenta bois, cem carneiros, duzentos cordeiros; tudo isso, em holocausto para o SENHOR.

33 And the holy things were six hundred oxen and three thousand sheep.
33 Houve também, de coisas consagradas, seiscentos bois e três mil ovelhas.

34 There were not enough priests for the work of cutting up all the burned offerings; so their brothers the Levites gave them help till the work was done and the priests had made themselves holy: for the Levites were more upright in heart to make themselves holy than the priests.
34 Eram, porém, os sacerdotes mui poucos e não podiam esfolar a todos os holocaustos; pelo que seus irmãos, os levitas, os ajudaram, até a obra se acabar e até que os outros sacerdotes se santificaram; porque os levitas foram mais retos de coração para se santificarem do que os sacerdotes.

35 And there was a great amount of burned offerings, with the fat of the peace-offerings and the drink offerings for every burned offering. So the work of the Lord’s house was put in order.
35 E houve também holocaustos em abundância, com a gordura das ofertas pacíficas e com as ofertas de vinho para os holocaustos. Assim, se estabeleceu o ministério da Casa do SENHOR.

36 And Hezekiah and all the people were full of joy, because God had made the people ready: for the thing was done suddenly.
36 E Ezequias e todo o povo se alegraram por causa daquilo que Deus tinha preparado para o povo; porque apressuradamente se fez esta obra.

2 Chronicles 30

1 Then Hezekiah sent word to all Israel and Judah, and sent letters to Ephraim and Manasseh, requesting them to come to the house of the Lord at Jerusalem, to keep the Passover to the Lord, the God of Israel.
1 Depois disso, Ezequias enviou mensageiros por todo o Israel e Judá e escreveu também cartas a Efraim e a Manassés que viessem à Casa do SENHOR, a Jerusalém, para celebrarem a Páscoa ao SENHOR, Deus de Israel.

2 For the king, after discussion with his chiefs and all the body of the people in Jerusalem, had made a decision to keep the Passover in the second month.
2 Porque o rei tivera conselho com os seus maiorais e com toda a congregação em Jerusalém para celebrarem a Páscoa no segundo mês.

3 It was not possible to keep it at that time, because not enough priests had made themselves holy, and the people had not come together in Jerusalem.
3 Porquanto, no mesmo tempo, não a puderam celebrar, porque se não tinham santificado bastantes sacerdotes, e o povo se não tinha ajuntado em Jerusalém.

4 And the thing was right in the eyes of the king and all the people.
4 E foi isso reto aos olhos do rei e aos olhos de toda a congregação.

5 So it was ordered that word was to be sent out through all Israel, from Beer-sheba to Dan, that they were to come to keep the Passover to the Lord, the God of Israel, at Jerusalem: because they had not kept it in great numbers in agreement with the law.
5 E ordenaram que se fizesse passar pregão por todo o Israel, desde Berseba até Dã, para que viessem a celebrar a Páscoa ao SENHOR, Deus de Israel, a Jerusalém; porque muitos a não tinham celebrado como estava escrito.

6 So runners went with letters from the king and his chiefs through all Israel and Judah, by the order of the king, saying, O children of Israel, come back again to the Lord, the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Israel, so that he may come again to that small band of you which has been kept safe out of the hands of the kings of Assyria.
6 Foram, pois, os correios com as cartas das mãos do rei e dos seus príncipes por todo o Israel e Judá e segundo o mandado do rei, dizendo: Filhos de Israel, convertei-vos ao SENHOR, Deus de Abraão, de Isaque e de Israel, para que ele se volte para aqueles de vós que escaparam e escaparam das mãos dos reis da Assíria.

7 Do not be like your fathers and your brothers, who were sinners against the Lord, the God of their fathers, so that he made them a cause of fear, as you see.
7 E não sejais como vossos pais e como vossos irmãos, que transgrediram contra o SENHOR, Deus de seus pais, pelo que os pôs em assolação como o vedes.

8 Now do not be hard-hearted, as your fathers were; but give yourselves to the Lord, and come into his holy place, which he has made his for ever, and be the servants of the Lord your God, so that the heat of his wrath may be turned away from you.
8 Não endureçais, agora, a vossa cerviz, como vossos pais; dai a mão ao SENHOR, e vinde ao santuário que ele santificou para sempre, e servi ao SENHOR, vosso Deus, para que o ardor da sua ira se desvie de vós.

9 For if you come back to the Lord, those who took away your brothers and your children will have pity on them, and let them come back to this land: for the Lord your God is full of grace and mercy, and his face will not be turned away from you if you come back to him.
9 Porque, em vos convertendo ao SENHOR, vossos irmãos e vossos filhos acharão misericórdia perante os que os levaram cativos e tornarão a esta terra; porque o SENHOR, vosso Deus, é piedoso e misericordioso e não desviará de vós o rosto, se vos converterdes a ele.

10 So the runners went from town to town through all the country of Ephraim and Manasseh as far as Zebulun: but they were laughed at and made sport of.
10 E os correios foram passando de cidade em cidade, pela terra de Efraim e Manassés até Zebulom; porém riram-se e zombaram deles.

11 However, some of Asher and Manasseh and Zebulun put away their pride and came to Jerusalem.
11 Todavia, alguns de Aser, e de Manassés, e de Zebulom se humilharam e vieram a Jerusalém.

12 And in Judah the power of God gave them one heart to do the orders of the king and the captains, which were taken as the word of the Lord.
12 E em Judá esteve a mão de Deus, dando-lhes um só coração, para fazerem o mandado do rei e dos príncipes, conforme a palavra do SENHOR.

13 So a very great number of people came together at Jerusalem to keep the feast of unleavened bread in the second month.
13 E ajuntou-se em Jerusalém muito povo para celebrar a Festa dos Pães Asmos, no segundo mês; uma mui grande congregação.

14 And they got to work and took away all the altars in Jerusalem, and they put all the vessels for burning perfumes into the stream Kidron.
14 E levantaram-se, e tiraram os altares que havia em Jerusalém, e também tiraram todos os vasos de incenso, e os lançaram no ribeiro de Cedrom.

15 Then on the fourteenth day of the second month they put the Passover lambs to death: and the priests and the Levites were shamed, and made themselves holy and took burned offerings into the house of the Lord.
15 Então, sacrificaram a Páscoa no dia décimo quarto do segundo mês; e os sacerdotes e levitas se envergonharam, e se santificaram, e trouxeram holocaustos à Casa do SENHOR.

16 And they took their places in their right order, as it was ordered in the law of Moses, the man of God: the priests draining out on the altar the blood given them by the Levites.
16 E puseram-se no seu lugar, segundo o seu costume, conforme a Lei de Moisés, o homem de Deus; e os sacerdotes aspergiam o sangue, tomando-o das mãos dos levitas.

17 For there were still a number of the people there who had not made themselves holy: so the Levites had to put Passover lambs to death for those who were not clean, to make them holy to the Lord.
17 Porque havia muitos na congregação que se não tinham santificado; pelo que os levitas estavam encarregados de matarem os cordeiros da Páscoa por todo aquele que não estava limpo, para o santificarem ao SENHOR.

18 For a great number of the people from Ephraim and Manasseh, Issachar and Zebulun, had not made themselves clean, but they took the Passover meal, though not in the right way. For Hezekiah had made prayer for them, saying, May the good Lord have mercy on everyone
18 Porque uma multidão do povo, muitos de Efraim e Manassés, Issacar e Zebulom, se não tinham purificado e, contudo, comeram a Páscoa, não como está escrito; porém Ezequias orou por eles, dizendo: O SENHOR, que é bom, faça reconciliação com aquele

19 Who, with all his heart, is turned to God the Lord, the God of his fathers, even if he has not been made clean after the rules of the holy place.
19 que tem preparado o coração para buscar ao SENHOR Deus, o Deus de seus pais, ainda que não esteja purificado segundo a purificação do santuário.

20 And the Lord gave ear to Hezekiah, and made the people well.
20 E ouviu o SENHOR a Ezequias e sarou o povo.

21 So the children of Israel who were present in Jerusalem kept the feast of unleavened bread for seven days with great joy: and the Levites and the priests gave praise to the Lord day by day, making melody to the Lord with loud instruments.
21 E os filhos de Israel que se acharam em Jerusalém celebraram a Festa dos Pães Asmos sete dias, com grande alegria; e os levitas e os sacerdotes louvaram bem alto ao SENHOR, dia após dia.

22 And Hezekiah said kind words to the Levites who were expert in the ordering of the worship of the Lord: so they kept the feast for seven days, offering peace-offerings and praising the Lord, the God of their fathers.
22 E Ezequias falou benignamente a todos os levitas que tinham entendimento no bom conhecimento do SENHOR; e comeram as ofertas da solenidade por sete dias, oferecendo ofertas pacíficas e louvando ao SENHOR, Deus de seus pais.

23 And by the desire of all the people, the feast went on for another seven days, and they kept the seven days with joy.
23 E, tendo toda a congregação conselho para celebrarem outros sete dias, celebraram ainda sete dias com alegria.

24 For Hezekiah, king of Judah, gave to the people for offerings, a thousand oxen and seven thousand sheep; and the rulers gave a thousand oxen and ten thousand sheep; and a great number of priests made themselves holy.
24 Porque Ezequias, rei de Judá, apresentou à congregação mil novilhos e sete mil ovelhas; e os príncipes apresentaram à congregação mil novilhos e dez mil ovelhas; e os sacerdotes se santificaram em grande número.

25 And all the people of Judah, with the priests and the Levites, and those who had come from Israel, and men from other lands who had come from Israel or who were living in Judah, were glad with great joy.
25 E alegraram-se toda a congregação de Judá, e os sacerdotes, e os levitas, e toda a congregação de todos os que vieram de Israel, como também os estrangeiros que vieram da terra de Israel e os que habitavam em Judá.

26 So there was great joy in Jerusalem: for nothing like this had been seen in Jerusalem from the time of Solomon, the son of David, king of Israel.
26 E houve grande alegria em Jerusalém, porque, desde os dias de Salomão, filho de Davi, rei de Israel, tal não houve em Jerusalém.

27 Then the priests and the Levites gave the people a blessing: and the voice of their prayer went up to the holy place of God in heaven.
27 Então, os sacerdotes e os levitas se levantaram e abençoaram o povo; e a sua voz foi ouvida, porque a sua oração chegou até à sua santa habitação, aos céus.

2 Chronicles 31

1 Now when all this was over, all the men of Israel who were present went out into the towns of Judah, causing the stone pillars to be broken up and the wood pillars to be cut down, pulling down the high places and the altars in all Judah and Benjamin, as well as in Ephraim and Manasseh, till all were gone. Then all the children of Israel went back to their towns, every man to his property.
1 E, acabando tudo isso, todos os israelitas que ali se achavam saíram às cidades de Judá e quebraram as estátuas, cortaram os bosques e derribaram os altos e altares por todo o Judá e Benjamim, como também em Efraim e Manassés, até que tudo destruíram; então, tornaram todos os filhos de Israel, cada um para sua possessão, para as cidades deles.

2 Then Hezekiah put in order the divisions of the priests and Levites, every man in his division, in relation to his work, for the burned offerings and peace-offerings, and for the ordering of worship and for giving praise at the doors of the Lord’s house.
2 E estabeleceu Ezequias as turmas dos sacerdotes e levitas, segundo as suas turmas, a cada um segundo o seu ministério; aos sacerdotes e levitas para o holocausto e para as ofertas pacíficas, para ministrarem, e louvarem, e cantarem às portas dos arraiais do SENHOR.

3 And he gave the king’s part of his private property for the burned offerings, that is, for the morning and evening offerings, and the offerings for the Sabbath and the new moons and the regular feasts, as it is recorded in the law of the Lord.
3 Também estabeleceu a parte da fazenda do rei para os holocaustos, e para os holocaustos da manhã e da tarde, e para os holocaustos dos sábados, e das Festas da Lua Nova, e das solenidades, como está escrito na Lei do SENHOR.

4 In addition, he gave orders to the people of Jerusalem to give to the priests and Levites that part which was theirs by right, so that they might be strong in keeping the law of the Lord.
4 E ordenou ao povo, moradores de Jerusalém, que desse a parte dos sacerdotes e levitas, para que se pudessem dedicar à Lei do SENHOR.

5 And when the order was made public, straight away the children of Israel gave, in great amounts, the first-fruits of their grain and wine and oil and honey, and of the produce of their fields; and they took in a tenth part of everything, a great store.
5 E, depois que essa ordem se divulgou, os filhos de Israel trouxeram muitas primícias de trigo, e de mosto, e de azeite, e de mel, e de toda a novidade do campo; também os dízimos de tudo trouxeram em abundância.

6 And the children of Israel and Judah, who were living in the towns of Judah came with the tenth part of their oxen and sheep, and a tenth of all the holy things which were to be given to the Lord their God, and put them in great masses.
6 E os filhos de Israel e de Judá que habitavam nas cidades de Judá também trouxeram dízimos das vacas e das ovelhas e dízimos das coisas sagradas que foram consagradas ao SENHOR, seu Deus; e fizeram muitos montões.

7 The first store of things was put down in the third month, and in the seventh month the masses were complete.
7 No terceiro mês, começaram a fazer os primeiros montões e no sétimo mês acabaram.

8 And when Hezekiah and the rulers came and saw all the store of goods, they gave praise to the Lord and to his people Israel.
8 Vindo, pois, Ezequias e os príncipes e vendo aqueles montões, bendisseram ao SENHOR e ao seu povo de Israel.

9 Then Hezekiah put questions to the priests and Levites about the store of goods.
9 E perguntou Ezequias aos sacerdotes e aos levitas acerca daqueles montões.

10 And Azariah, the chief priest, of the family of Zadok, said in answer, From the time when the people first came with their offerings into the house of the Lord, we have had food enough, and more than enough: for the blessing of the Lord is on his people; and there is this great store which has not been used.
10 E Azarias, o sumo sacerdote da casa de Zadoque, lhe falou, dizendo: Desde que esta oferta se começou a trazer à Casa do SENHOR, houve o que comer e de que se fartar e ainda sobejo em abundância, porque o SENHOR abençoou ao seu povo, e sobejou esta abastança.

11 Then Hezekiah said that store-rooms were to be made ready in the house of the Lord; and this was done.
11 Então, disse Ezequias que se preparassem câmaras na Casa do SENHOR, e as prepararam.

12 And in them they put all the offerings and the tenths and the holy things, keeping nothing back, and over them was Conaniah the Levite, with Shimei his brother second to him.
12 Ali, meteram fielmente as ofertas, e os dízimos, e as coisas consagradas; e isso estava a cargo de Conanias, o levita maioral, e Simei, seu irmão, o segundo.

13 And Jehiel and Azaziah and Nahath and Asahel and Jerimoth and Jozabad and Eliel and Ismachiah and Mahath and Benaiah were overseers, under the directions of Conaniah and Shimei his brother, by the order of Hezekiah the king and Azariah, the ruler of the house of God.
13 Jeiel, e Azarias, e Naate, e Asael, e Jerimote, e Jozabade, e Eliel, e Ismaquias, e Maate, e Benaia eram superintendentes sob a direção de Conanias e Simei, seu irmão, por mandado do rei Ezequias e de Azarias, maioral da Casa de Deus.

14 And Kore, the son of Imnah the Levite, the keeper of the east door, had control of the offerings freely given to God, and the distribution of the offerings of the Lord and the most holy things.
14 E Coré, filho de Imna, o levita, porteiro da banda do oriente, estava encarregado das ofertas voluntárias a Deus, para distribuir as ofertas alçadas do SENHOR e as coisas santíssimas.

15 And under him were Eden and Miniamin and Jeshua and Shemaiah and Amariah and Shecaniah, in the towns of the priests, who were made responsible for giving it to all their brothers, by divisions, to small and great:
15 E debaixo das suas ordens estavam Éden, e Miniamim, e Jesua, e Semaías, e Amarias, e Secanias, nas cidades dos sacerdotes, para distribuírem com fidelidade a seus irmãos, segundo as suas turmas, tanto aos pequenos como aos grandes;

16 As well as to all the males, of three years old and over, listed by their families, who went into the house of the Lord to do what was needed day by day, for their special work with their divisions.
16 além dos que estavam contados pelas genealogias dos varões, da idade de três anos e daí para cima, a todos os que entravam na Casa do SENHOR, para a obra de cada dia no seu dia pelo seu ministério nas suas guardas, segundo as suas turmas,

17 And the families of the priests were listed by their fathers’ names, but the Levites, of twenty years old and over, were listed in relation to their work in their divisions;
17 e os que estavam contados pelas genealogias dos sacerdotes, segundo a casa de seus pais, como também os levitas, da idade de vinte anos e daí para cima, nas suas guardas, segundo as suas turmas;

18 And in the lists were all their little ones and their wives and their sons and daughters, through all the people: they made themselves holy in the positions which they were given.
18 como também conforme as genealogias, com todas as suas crianças, e suas mulheres, e seus filhos, e suas filhas, por toda a congregação, porque, com fidelidade, estes se santificavam nas coisas consagradas.

19 And as for the sons of Aaron, the priests, living in the country on the outskirts of their towns, every different town there were men, marked out by name, to give their part of the goods to all the males among the priests, and to all who were listed among the Levites.
19 Também dentre os filhos de Arão havia sacerdotes nos campos dos arrabaldes das suas cidades, em cada cidade, homens que foram contados pelo seu nome para distribuírem as porções a todo varão entre os sacerdotes e a todos os que estavam contados pelas genealogias entre os levitas.

20 This Hezekiah did through all Judah; he did what was good and right and true before the Lord his God.
20 E assim fez Ezequias em todo o Judá; e fez o que era bom, e reto, e verdadeiro perante o SENHOR, seu Deus.

21 And for everything he undertook, in connection with the work of the house of God and his law and orders, he got directions from God and did it with serious purpose; and things went well for him.
21 E em toda obra que começou no serviço da Casa de Deus, e na lei, e nos mandamentos, para buscar a seu Deus, com todo o seu coração o fez e prosperou.

2 Chronicles 32

1 Now after these things and this true-hearted work, Sennacherib, king of Assyria, came into Judah, and put his army in position before the walled towns of Judah, designing to make his way into them by force.
1 Depois dessas coisas e dessa fidelidade, veio Senaqueribe, rei da Assíria, e entrou em Judá, e acampou-se contra as cidades fortes, e intentou separá-las para si.

2 And when Hezekiah saw that Sennacherib had come for the purpose of fighting against Jerusalem,
2 Vendo, pois, Ezequias que Senaqueribe vinha e que o seu rosto era de guerra contra Jerusalém,

3 He took up with his rulers and men of war the question of stopping up the water-springs outside the town; and they gave him their support.
3 teve conselho com os seus príncipes e os seus varões, para que se tapassem as fontes das águas que havia fora da cidade; e eles o ajudaram.

4 So they got together a great number of people, and had all the water-springs and the stream flowing through the land stopped up, saying, Why let the kings of Assyria come and have much water?
4 Assim, muito povo se ajuntou e tapou todas as fontes, como também o ribeiro que se estendia pelo meio da terra. E disseram: Por que viriam os reis da Assíria e achariam tantas águas?

5 Then he took heart, building up the wall where it was broken down, and making its towers higher, and building another wall outside; and he made strong the Millo in the town of David, and got together a great store of all sorts of instruments of war.
5 E ele se fortificou, e edificou todo o muro quebrado até às torres, e levantou o outro muro para fora, e fortificou a Milo na Cidade de Davi, e fez armas e escudos em abundância.

6 And he put war chiefs over the people, and sent for them all to come together to him in the wide place at the doorway into the town, and to give them heart he said to them,
6 E pôs oficiais de guerra sobre o povo, e ajuntou-os a si na praça da porta da cidade, e falou-lhes ao coração, dizendo:

7 Be strong and take heart; have no fear, and do not be troubled on account of the king of Assyria and all the great army with him: for there is a greater with us.
7 Esforçai-vos e tende bom ânimo; não temais, nem vos espanteis por causa do rei da Assíria, nem por causa de toda a multidão que está com ele, porque há um maior conosco do que com ele.

8 With him is an arm of flesh; but we have the Lord our God, helping us and fighting for us. And the people put their faith in what Hezekiah, king of Judah, said.
8 Com ele está o braço de carne, mas conosco, o SENHOR, nosso Deus, para nos ajudar e para guerrear nossas guerras. E o povo descansou nas palavras de Ezequias, rei de Judá.

9 After this, Sennacherib, king of Assyria, sent his servants to Jerusalem (at that time he was stationed with all his army in front of Lachish), to say to Hezekiah and all the men of Judah in Jerusalem,
9 Depois disso, Senaqueribe, rei da Assíria, enviou os seus servos a Jerusalém (ele, porém, estava diante de Laquis, com todo o seu domínio), a Ezequias, rei de Judá, e a todo o Judá que estava em Jerusalém, dizendo:

10 Sennacherib, king of Assyria, says, In what are you placing your hope, waiting here in the walled town of Jerusalem?
10 Assim diz Senaqueribe, rei da Assíria: Em que confiais vós, que vos ficais na fortaleza em Jerusalém?

11 Is it not Hezekiah who has got you to do it, causing your death from need of food and water, by saying, The Lord our God will give us salvation out of the hands of the king of Assyria?
11 Porventura, não vos incita Ezequias, para morrerdes à fome e à sede, dizendo: O SENHOR, nosso Deus, nos livrará das mãos do rei da Assíria?

12 Has not this same Hezekiah taken away his high places and his altars, saying to Judah and Jerusalem, Give worship before one altar only, burning offerings on it?
12 Não é Ezequias o mesmo que tirou os seus altos e os seus altares e falou a Judá e a Jerusalém, dizendo: Diante do único altar vos prostrareis e sobre ele queimareis incenso?

13 Have you no knowledge of what I and my fathers have done to all the peoples of every land? were the gods of the nations of those lands able to keep their land from falling into my hands?
13 Não sabeis vós o que eu e meus pais fizemos a todos os povos das terras? Porventura, puderam de qualquer maneira os deuses das nações daquelas terras livrar a sua terra das minhas mãos?

14 Who was there among all the gods of those nations, which my fathers put to destruction, who was able to keep his people safe from my hands? and is it possible that your God will keep you safe from my hands?
14 Qual é, de todos os deuses daquelas nações que meus pais destruíram, que pôde livrar o seu povo das minhas mãos, para que vosso Deus vos possa livrar das minhas mãos?

15 So do not be tricked by Hezekiah or let him get you to do this, and do not put any faith in what he says: for no god of any nation or kingdom has been able to keep his people safe from my hands, or the hands of my fathers: how much less will your God keep you safe from my hands!
15 Agora, pois, não vos engane Ezequias, nem vos incite assim, nem lhe deis crédito, porque nenhum deus de nação alguma, nem de reino algum pôde livrar o seu povo das minhas mãos, nem das mãos de meus pais, quanto menos vos poderá livrar o vosso Deus das minhas mãos.

16 And his servants said even more against the Lord God and against his servant Hezekiah.
16 Também seus servos falaram ainda mais contra o SENHOR Deus e contra Ezequias, o seu servo.

17 And he sent letters, in addition, to put shame on the Lord, the God of Israel, and to say evil against him, saying, As the gods of the nations of other lands have not been able to keep their people safe from my hands, no more will the God of Hezekiah keep his people safe from my hands.
17 Escreveu também cartas, para blasfemar do SENHOR, Deus de Israel, e para falar contra ele, dizendo: Assim como os deuses das nações das terras não livraram o seu povo das minhas mãos, assim também o Deus de Ezequias não livrará o seu povo das minhas mãos.

18 These things they said, crying out with a loud voice in the Jews’ language, to the people of Jerusalem who were on the wall, with the purpose of troubling them and putting fear into them, so that they might take the town;
18 E clamaram em alta voz em judaico contra o povo de Jerusalém que estava em cima do muro, para os atemorizarem e os perturbarem, para tomarem a cidade.

19 Talking of the God of Jerusalem as if he was like the gods of the peoples of the earth, the work of men’s hands.
19 E falaram do Deus de Jerusalém, como dos deuses dos povos da terra, obras das mãos dos homens.

20 And Hezekiah the king, and Isaiah the prophet, the son of Amoz, made prayer because of this, crying out to heaven.
20 Porém o rei Ezequias e o profeta Isaías, filho de Amoz, oraram por causa disso e clamaram ao céu.

21 And the Lord sent an angel who put to death all the men of war and the chiefs and the captains in the army of the king of Assyria. So he went back to his country in shame. And when he came into the house of his god, his sons, the offspring of his body, put him to death there with the sword.
21 Então, o SENHOR enviou um anjo que destruiu todos os varões valentes, e os príncipes, e os chefes no arraial do rei da Assíria; e este tornou com vergonha de rosto à sua terra; e, entrando na casa de seu deus, os mesmos que descenderam dele o mataram ali à espada.

22 So the Lord gave Hezekiah and the people of Jerusalem salvation from the power of Sennacherib, the king of Assyria, and from all others, giving them rest on every side.
22 Assim livrou o SENHOR a Ezequias e aos moradores de Jerusalém das mãos de Senaqueribe, rei da Assíria, e das mãos de todos; e de todos os lados os guiou.

23 And great numbers came to Jerusalem with offerings for the Lord, and things of great price for Hezekiah, king of Judah: so that he was honoured among all nations from that time.
23 E muitos traziam presentes a Jerusalém, ao SENHOR, e coisas preciosíssimas a Ezequias, rei de Judá, de modo que, depois disso, foi exaltado perante os olhos de todas as nações.

24 In those days Hezekiah was ill and near death; and he made prayer to the Lord, and the Lord in answer gave him a sign.
24 Naqueles dias, Ezequias adoeceu de morte e orou ao SENHOR, o qual lhe falou e lhe deu um sinal.

25 But Hezekiah did not do as had been done to him; for his heart was lifted up in pride; and so wrath came on him and on Judah and Jerusalem.
25 Mas não correspondeu Ezequias ao benefício que se lhe fez, porque o seu coração se exaltou; pelo que veio grande indignação sobre ele e sobre Judá e Jerusalém.

26 But then, Hezekiah, in sorrow for what he had done, put away his pride; and he and all Jerusalem made themselves low, so that the wrath of the Lord did not come on them in Hezekiah’s life-time.
26 Ezequias, porém, se humilhou pela soberba do seu coração, ele e os habitantes de Jerusalém; e a grande indignação do SENHOR não veio sobre eles, nos dias de Ezequias.

27 And Hezekiah had very great wealth and honour; and he made himself store-houses for his gold and silver and jewels and spices, and for body-covers and all sorts of beautiful vessels.
27 E teve Ezequias riquezas e glória em grande abundância; e fizeram-se tesouros de prata, e de ouro, e de pedras preciosas, e de especiarias, e de escudos, e de tudo o que se podia desejar,

28 And store-houses for the produce of grain and wine and oil; and buildings for all sorts of beasts and flocks.
28 também armazéns para a colheita do trigo, e do mosto, e do azeite, e estrebarias para toda casta de animais, e currais para os rebanhos.

29 And he made towns for himself, and got together much property in flocks and herds: for God had given him great wealth.
29 Edificou também cidades e possuiu ovelhas e vacas em abundância, porque Deus lhe tinha dado muitíssima fazenda.

30 It was Hezekiah who had the higher spring of the water of Gihon stopped, and the water taken down on the west side of the town of David. In everything he undertook, Hezekiah did well.
30 Também o mesmo Ezequias tapou o manancial superior das águas de Giom e as fez correr por baixo para o ocidente da Cidade de Davi, porque Ezequias prosperou em toda a sua obra.

31 However, in the business of the representatives sent by the rulers of Babylon to get news of the wonder which had taken place in the land, God gave up guiding him, testing him to see what was in his heart.
31 Contudo, no negócio dos embaixadores dos príncipes da Babilônia que foram enviados a ele a perguntarem acerca do prodígio que se fez naquela terra, Deus o desamparou, para tentá-lo, para saber tudo o que havia no seu coração.

32 Now the rest of the acts of Hezekiah, and the good he did, are recorded in the vision of Isaiah the prophet, the son of Amoz, and in the book of the kings of Judah and Israel.
32 Quanto ao resto dos atos de Ezequias e às suas beneficências, eis que estão escritos na visão do profeta Isaías, filho de Amoz, e no livro da história dos reis de Judá e de Israel.

33 So Hezekiah went to rest with his fathers, and they put his body into the higher part of the resting-places of the sons of David: and all Judah and the people of Jerusalem gave him honour at his death. And Manasseh his son became king in his place.
33 E dormiu Ezequias com seus pais, e o sepultaram no mais alto dos sepulcros dos filhos de Davi; e todo o Judá e os habitantes de Jerusalém lhe fizeram honras na sua morte; e Manassés, seu filho, reinou em seu lugar.

2 Chronicles 33

1 Manasseh was twelve years old when he became king, and he was ruling for fifty-five years in Jerusalem.
1 Tinha Manassés doze anos de idade quando começou a reinar e cinqüenta e cinco anos reinou em Jerusalém.

2 He did evil in the eyes of the Lord, copying the disgusting ways of the nations whom the Lord had sent out of the land before the children of Israel.
2 E fez o que era mal aos olhos do SENHOR, conforme as abominações dos gentios que o SENHOR lançara de diante dos filhos de Israel.

3 For he put up again the high places which had been pulled down by his father Hezekiah; and he made altars for the Baals, and pillars of wood, and was a worshipper and servant of all the stars of heaven;
3 Porque tornou a edificar os altos que Ezequias, seu pai, tinha derribado, e levantou altares a baalins, e fez bosques, e prostrou-se diante de todo o exército dos céus, e o serviu.

4 And he made altars in the house of the Lord, of which the Lord had said, In Jerusalem will my name be for ever.
4 E edificou altares na Casa do SENHOR, da qual o SENHOR tinha dito: Em Jerusalém estará o meu nome eternamente.

5 And he made altars for all the stars of heaven in the two outer squares of the house of the Lord.
5 Edificou altares a todo o exército dos céus, em ambos os pátios da Casa do SENHOR.

6 More than this, he made his children go through the fire in the valley of the son of Hinnom; and he made use of secret arts, and signs for reading the future, and unnatural powers, and gave positions to those who had control of spirits and to wonder-workers: he did much evil in the eyes of the Lord, moving him to wrath.
6 Fez ele também passar os seus filhos pelo fogo no vale do Filho de Hinom, e usou de adivinhações, e de agouros, e de feitiçarias, e consultou adivinhos e encantadores, e fez muitíssimo mal aos olhos do SENHOR, para o provocar à ira.

7 And he put the image he had made in the house of God, the house of which God had said to David and to Solomon his son, In this house, and in Jerusalem, the town which I have made mine out of all the tribes of Israel, will I put my name for ever:
7 Também pôs uma imagem esculpida, o ídolo que tinha feito, na Casa de Deus, da qual Deus tinha dito a Davi e a Salomão, seu filho: Nesta casa, em Jerusalém, que escolhi dentre todas as tribos de Israel, porei eu o meu nome para sempre;

8 And never again will I let the feet of Israel be moved out of the land which I have given to their fathers; if only they will take care to do all my orders, even all the law and the orders and the rules given to them by Moses.
8 e nunca mais removerei o pé de Israel da terra que destinei a vossos pais, contanto que tenham cuidado de fazer tudo o que eu lhes ordenei, conforme toda a lei, e estatutos, e juízos dados pelas mãos de Moisés.

9 And Manasseh made Judah and the people of Jerusalem go out of the true way, so that they did more evil than those nations whom the Lord gave up to destruction before the children of Israel.
9 E Manassés tanto fez errar a Judá e aos moradores de Jerusalém, que fizeram pior do que as nações que o SENHOR tinha destruído de diante dos filhos de Israel.

10 And the word of the Lord came to Manasseh and his people, but they gave no attention.
10 E falou o SENHOR a Manassés e ao seu povo, porém não deram ouvidos.

11 So the Lord sent against them the captains of the army of Assyria, who made Manasseh a prisoner and took him away in chains to Babylon.
11 Pelo que o SENHOR trouxe sobre eles os príncipes do exército do rei da Assíria, os quais prenderam Manassés entre os espinhais, e o amarraram com cadeias, e o levaram à Babilônia.

12 And crying out to the Lord his God in his trouble, he made himself low before the God of his fathers,
12 E ele, angustiado, orou deveras ao SENHOR, seu Deus, e humilhou-se muito perante o Deus de seus pais,

13 And made prayer to him; and in answer to his prayer God let him come back to Jerusalem and to his kingdom. Then Manasseh was certain that the Lord was God.
13 e lhe fez oração, e Deus se aplacou para com ele, e ouviu a sua súplica, e o tornou a trazer a Jerusalém, ao seu reino; então, reconheceu Manassés que o SENHOR é Deus.

14 After this he made an outer wall for the town of David, on the west side of Gihon in the valley, as far as the way into the town by the fish doorway; and he put a very high wall round the Ophel; and he put captains of the army in all the walled towns of Judah.
14 E, depois disso edificou o muro de fora da Cidade de Davi, ao ocidente de Giom, no vale, e à entrada da Porta do Peixe, e à roda, até Ofel, e o levantou mui alto; também pôs oficiais valentes em todas as cidades fortes de Judá.

15 He took away the strange gods and the image out of the house of the Lord, and all the altars he had put up on the hill of the Lord’s house and in Jerusalem, and put them out of the town.
15 E tirou da Casa do SENHOR os deuses estranhos e o ídolo, como também todos os altares que tinha edificado no monte da Casa do SENHOR e em Jerusalém e os lançou fora da cidade.

16 And he put the altar of the Lord in order, offering peace-offerings and praise-offerings on it, and said that all Judah were to be servants of the Lord, the God of Israel.
16 E reparou o altar do SENHOR, e ofereceu sobre ele ofertas pacíficas e de louvor, e mandou a Judá que servisse ao SENHOR, Deus de Israel.

17 However, the people still made offerings in the high places, but only to the Lord their God.
17 Mas ainda o povo sacrificava nos altos, mas somente ao SENHOR, seu Deus.

18 Now the rest of the acts of Manasseh, and his prayer to his God, and the words which the seers said to him in the name of the Lord, the God of Israel, are recorded among the acts of the kings of Israel.
18 O resto, pois, dos atos de Manassés, e a sua oração ao seu Deus, e as palavras dos videntes que lhe falaram em nome do SENHOR, Deus de Israel, eis que estão no livro da história dos reis de Israel.

19 And the prayer which he made to God, and how God gave him an answer, and all his sin and his wrongdoing, and the places where he made high places and put up pillars of wood and images, before he put away his pride, are recorded in the history of the seers.
19 E a sua oração, como Deus se aplacou para com ele, e todo o seu pecado, e a sua transgressão, e os lugares onde edificou altos e pôs bosques e imagens de escultura, antes que se humilhasse, eis que está tudo escrito nos livros dos videntes.

20 So Manasseh went to rest with his fathers, and they put his body to rest in his house, and Amon his son became king in his place.
20 E dormiu Manassés com seus pais, e o sepultaram em sua casa; Amom, seu filho, reinou em seu lugar.

21 Amon was twenty-two years old when he became king; and he was ruling for two years in Jerusalem.
21 Era Amom da idade de vinte e dois anos quando começou a reinar e dois anos reinou em Jerusalém.

22 He did evil in the eyes of the Lord, as Manasseh his father had done; and Amon made offerings to all the images which his father Manasseh had made, and was their servant.
22 E fez o que era mal aos olhos do SENHOR, como havia feito Manassés, seu pai, porque Amom sacrificou a todas as imagens de escultura que Manassés, seu pai, tinha feito e as serviu.

23 He did not make himself low before the Lord, as his father Manasseh had done, but went on sinning more and more.
23 Mas não se humilhou perante o SENHOR, como Manassés, seu pai, se humilhara; antes, multiplicou Amom os seus delitos.

24 And his servants made a secret design against him, and put him to death in his house.
24 E conspiraram contra ele os seus servos e o mataram em sua casa.

25 But the people of the land put to death all those who had taken part in the design against King Amon, and made his son Josiah king in his place.
25 Porém o povo da terra feriu todos quantos conspiraram contra o rei Amom e o povo da terra fez reinar em seu lugar a Josias, seu filho.

2 Chronicles 34

1 Josiah was eight years old when he became king; he was ruling in Jerusalem for thirty-one years.
1 Tinha Josias oito anos quando começou a reinar e trinta e um anos reinou em Jerusalém.

2 And he did what was right in the eyes of the Lord, walking in the ways of his father David, without turning to the right hand or to the left.
2 E fez o que era reto aos olhos do SENHOR e andou nos caminhos de Davi, seu pai, sem se desviar deles nem para a direita nem para a esquerda.

3 In the eighth year of his rule, while he was still young, his heart was first turned to the God of his father David; and in the twelfth year he undertook the clearing away of all the high places and the pillars and the images of wood and metal from Judah and Jerusalem.
3 Porque, no oitavo ano do seu reinado, sendo ainda moço, começou a buscar o Deus de Davi, seu pai; e, no duodécimo ano, começou a purificar a Judá e a Jerusalém dos altos, e dos bosques, e das imagens de escultura e de fundição.

4 He had the altars of the Baals broken down, while he himself was present; and the sun-images which were placed on high over them he had cut down; and the pillars of wood and the metal images he had broken up and crushed to dust, dropping the dust over the resting-places of the dead who had made offerings to them.
4 E derribaram perante ele os altares de baalins; e cortou as imagens do sol, que estavam acima deles, e os bosques, e as imagens de escultura e de fundição quebrou, e reduziu a pó, e o aspergiu sobre as sepulturas dos que lhes tinham sacrificado.

5 And he had the bones of the priests burned on their altars, and so he made Judah and Jerusalem clean.
5 E os ossos dos sacerdotes queimou sobre os seus altares e purificou a Judá e a Jerusalém.

6 And in all the towns of Manasseh and Ephraim and Simeon as far as Naphtali, he made waste their houses round about.
6 O mesmo fez nas cidades de Manassés, e de Efraim, e de Simeão, e ainda até Naftali, em seus lugares assolados, ao redor.

7 He had the altars and the pillars of wood pulled down and the images crushed to dust, and all the sun-images cut down, through all the land of Israel, and then he went back to Jerusalem.
7 E, tendo derribado os altares, e os bosques, e as imagens de escultura, até reduzi-los a pó, e tendo cortado todas as imagens do sol em toda a terra de Israel, então, voltou para Jerusalém.

8 Now in the eighteenth year of his rule, when the land and the house had been made clean, he sent Shaphan, the son of Azaliah, and Maaseiah, the ruler of the town, and Joah, the son of Joahaz, the recorder, to make good what was damaged in the house of the Lord his God.
8 E, no ano décimo oitavo do seu reinado, havendo já purificado a terra e a casa, enviou a Safã, filho de Azalias, e a Maaséias, maioral da cidade, e a Joá, filho de Joacaz, registrador, para repararem a Casa do SENHOR, seu Deus.

9 And they came to Hilkiah, the chief priest, and gave him all the money which had been taken into the house of God, which the Levites, the keepers of the door, had got from Manasseh and Ephraim and those of Israel who had not been taken away as prisoners, and from all Judah and Benjamin and the people of Jerusalem.
9 E vieram a Hilquias, sumo sacerdote, e deram o dinheiro que se tinha trazido à Casa de Deus e que os levitas que guardavam o umbral tinham recolhido das mãos de Manassés, e de Efraim, e de todo o resto de Israel, como também de todo o Judá e Benjamim; e voltaram para Jerusalém.

10 And they gave it to the overseers of the work of the Lord’s house, and the overseers gave it to the workmen working in the house, for building it up and making good what was damaged;
10 E o entregaram aos que dirigiam a obra e superintendiam sobre a Casa do SENHOR; e estes o deram aos que faziam a obra e trabalhavam na Casa do SENHOR, para consertarem e repararem a casa.

11 Even to the woodworkers and builders to get cut stone and wood for joining the structure together and for making boards for the houses which the kings of Judah had given up to destruction.
11 E o deram aos mestres da obra e aos edificadores, para comprarem pedras lavradas e madeira para as junturas e para sobradarem as casas que os reis de Judá tinham destruído.

12 And the men did the work well; and those who had authority over them were Jahath and Obadiah, Levites of the sons of Merari, and Zechariah and Meshullam, of the sons of the Kohathites, who were to be responsible for seeing that the work was done; and others of the Levites, who were expert with instruments of music,
12 E estes homens trabalhavam fielmente na obra; e os superintendentes sobre eles eram Jaate e Obadias, levitas, dos filhos de Merari, como também Zacarias e Mesulão, dos filhos dos coatitas, para adiantarem a obra, e outros levitas, todos que eram peritos em instrumentos de música.

13 Had authority over the transport workers, giving directions to all who were doing any sort of work; and among the Levites there were scribes and overseers and door-keepers.
13 Estavam também sobre os carregadores e os inspetores de todos os que trabalhavam em alguma obra; e, dentre os levitas, eram os escrivães, e os oficiais, e os porteiros.

14 Now when they were taking out the money which had come into the Lord’s house, Hilkiah the priest came across the book of the law of the Lord, which he had given by the mouth of Moses.
14 E, tirando eles o dinheiro que se tinha trazido à Casa do SENHOR, Hilquias, o sacerdote, achou o livro da Lei do SENHOR, dada pelas mãos de Moisés.

15 Then Hilkiah said to Shaphan the scribe, I have made discovery of the book of the law in the house of the Lord. And Hilkiah gave the book to Shaphan.
15 E Hilquias respondeu e disse a Safã, o escrivão: Achei o livro da Lei na Casa do SENHOR. E Hilquias deu o livro a Safã.

16 And Shaphan took the book to the king; and he gave him an account of what had been done, saying, Your servants are doing all they have been given to do;
16 E Safã levou o livro ao rei e deu conta também ao rei, dizendo: Teus servos fazem tudo quanto se lhes encomendou.

17 They have taken out all the money which was in the Lord’s house and have given it to the overseers and to the workmen.
17 E ajuntaram o dinheiro que se achou na Casa do SENHOR e o deram nas mãos dos superintendentes e nas mãos dos que faziam a obra.

18 Then Shaphan the scribe said to the king, Hilkiah the priest has given me a book; and he made a start at reading some of it to the king.
18 Além disso, Safã, o escrivão, fez saber ao rei, dizendo: O sacerdote Hilquias me deu um livro. E Safã leu nele perante o rei.

19 And the king, hearing the words of the law, took his robe in his hands, violently parting it as a sign of his grief.
19 Sucedeu, pois, que, ouvindo o rei as palavras da Lei, rasgou as suas vestes.

20 And he gave orders to Hilkiah and to Ahikam, the son of Shaphan, and Abdon, the son of Micah, and Shaphan the scribe and Asaiah, the king’s servant, saying,
20 E o rei deu ordem a Hilquias, e a Aicão, filho de Safã, e a Abdom, filho de Mica, e a Safã, o escrivão, e a Asaías, ministro do rei, dizendo:

21 Go and get directions from the Lord for me and for those who are still in Israel and for Judah, about the words of this book which has come to light; for great is the wrath of the Lord which has been let loose on us, because our fathers have not kept the word of the Lord or done what is recorded in this book.
21 Ide, consultai ao SENHOR, por mim e pelos que restam em Israel e em Judá, sobre as palavras deste livro que se achou, porque grande é o furor do SENHOR, que se derramou sobre nós; porquanto nossos pais não guardaram a palavra do SENHOR, para fazerem conforme tudo quanto está escrito neste livro.

22 So Hilkiah, and those whom the king sent, went to Huldah the woman prophet, the wife of Shallum, the son of Tokhath, the son of Hasrah, the keeper of the robes (now she was living in Jerusalem, in the second part of the town); and they had talk with her about this thing.
22 Então, Hilquias e os enviados do rei foram ter com a profetisa Hulda, mulher de Salum, filho de Tocate, filho de Harás, guarda das vestimentas (e habitava ela em Jerusalém na segunda parte); e falaram-lhe naquele sentido.

23 And she said to them, The Lord, the God of Israel, has said, Say to the man who sent you to me,
23 E ela lhes disse: Assim diz o SENHOR, Deus de Israel: Dizei ao homem que vos enviou a mim:

24 These are the words of the Lord: See, I will send evil on this place and on its people, even all the curses in the book which they have been reading before the king of Judah;
24 Assim diz o SENHOR: Eis que trarei mal sobre este lugar e sobre os seus habitantes, a saber, todas as maldições que estão escritas no livro que se leu perante o rei de Judá.

25 Because they have given me up, burning offerings to other gods and moving me to wrath by all the works of their hands; so my wrath is let loose on this place and will not be put out.
25 Porque me deixaram e queimaram incenso perante outros deuses, para me provocarem à ira com toda a obra das suas mãos; portanto, o meu furor se derramou sobre este lugar e não se apagará.

26 But to the king of Judah who sent you to get directions from the Lord, say, This is what the Lord, the God of Israel, has said: Because you have given ear to my words,
26 Porém ao rei de Judá, que vos enviou a consultar ao SENHOR, assim lhe direis: Assim diz o SENHOR, Deus de Israel, quanto às palavras que ouviste:

27 And your heart was soft, and you made yourself low before God, on hearing his words about this place and its people, and with weeping and signs of grief have made yourself low before me, I have given ear to you, says the Lord God.
27 Como o teu coração se enterneceu, e te humilhaste perante Deus, ouvindo as suas palavras contra este lugar e contra os seus habitantes, e te humilhaste perante mim, e rasgaste as tuas vestes, e choraste perante mim, também eu te tenho ouvido, diz o SENHOR.

28 See, I will let you go to your fathers, and be put in your last resting-place in peace, and your eyes will not see all the evil which I will send on this place and on its people. So they took this news back to the king.
28 Eis que te ajuntarei a teus pais, e tu serás recolhido ao teu sepulcro em paz, e os teus olhos não verão todo o mal que hei de trazer sobre este lugar e sobre os seus habitantes. E voltaram com esta resposta ao rei.

29 Then the king sent and got together all the responsible men of Judah and of Jerusalem.
29 Então, o rei convocou e ajuntou todos os anciãos de Judá e Jerusalém.

30 And the king went up to the house of the Lord, with all the men of Judah and the people of Jerusalem, and the priests and the Levites and all the people, small and great; and they were present at his reading of the book of the law which had come to light in the house of the Lord.
30 E o rei subiu à Casa do SENHOR com todos os homens de Judá e os habitantes de Jerusalém, e os sacerdotes, e os levitas, e todo o povo, desde o maior até ao menor; e ele leu aos ouvidos deles todas as palavras do livro do concerto, que se tinha achado na Casa do SENHOR.

31 Then the king, taking his place by the pillar, made an agreement before the Lord, to go in the way of the Lord, and to keep his orders and his decisions and his rules with all his heart and with all his soul, and to keep the words of the agreement recorded in this book.
31 E pôs-se o rei em pé em seu lugar e fez concerto perante o SENHOR, para andar após o SENHOR e para guardar os seus mandamentos, e os seus testemunhos, e os seus estatutos, com todo o seu coração e com toda a sua alma, cumprindo as palavras do concerto, que estão escritas naquele livro.

32 And he made all the people in Jerusalem and Benjamin give their word to keep it. And the people of Jerusalem kept the agreement of God, the God of their fathers.
32 E fez estar em pé a todos quantos se acharam em Jerusalém e em Benjamim; e os habitantes de Jerusalém fizeram conforme o concerto de Deus, do Deus de seus pais.

33 Josiah took away all the disgusting things out of all the lands of the children of Israel, and made all who were in Israel servants of the Lord their God. And as long as he was living they were true to the Lord, the God of their fathers.
33 E Josias tirou todas as abominações de todas as terras que eram dos filhos de Israel; e a todas quantos se achara em Israel obrigou a que com tal culto servissem ao SENHOR, seu Deus; todos os seus dias não se desviaram de após o SENHOR, Deus de seus pais.

2 Chronicles 35

1 And Josiah kept a Passover to the Lord in Jerusalem; on the fourteenth day of the first month they put the Passover lamb to death.
1 Então, Josias celebrou a Páscoa ao SENHOR em Jerusalém; e mataram o cordeiro da Páscoa no décimo quarto dia do mês primeiro.

2 And he gave the priests their places, making them strong for the work of the house of God.
2 E Josias estabeleceu os sacerdotes nos seus cargos e os animou ao ministério da Casa do SENHOR.

3 And he said to the Levites, the teachers of all Israel, who were holy to the Lord, See, the holy ark is in the house which Solomon, the son of David, king of Israel, made; it will no longer have to be transported on your backs: now be the servants of the Lord your God and his people Israel,
3 E disse aos levitas que ensinavam a todo o Israel e estavam consagrados ao SENHOR: Ponde a arca sagrada na casa que edificou Salomão, filho de Davi, rei de Israel; não tereis mais esta carga aos ombros; agora, servi ao SENHOR, vosso Deus, e ao seu povo de Israel.

4 And make yourselves ready in your divisions, by your families, as it is ordered in the writings of David, king of Israel, and of Solomon his son;
4 E preparai-vos segundo as casas de vossos pais, segundo as vossas turmas, conforme a prescrição de Davi, rei de Israel, e conforme a prescrição de Salomão, seu filho.

5 And take your positions in the holy place, grouped in the families of your brothers, the children of the people, and for every division let there be a part of a family of the Levites.
5 E estai no santuário segundo as divisões das casas paternas de vossos irmãos, os filhos do povo; e haja para cada um uma porção das casas paternas dos levitas.

6 And put the Passover lamb to death, and make yourselves holy, and make it ready for your brothers, so that the orders given by the Lord through Moses may be done.
6 E imolai a Páscoa, e santificai-vos, e preparai-a para vossos irmãos, fazendo conforme a palavra do SENHOR, dada pelas mãos de Moisés.

7 And Josiah gave lambs and goats from the flock as Passover offerings for all the people who were present, to the number of thirty thousand, and three thousand oxen: these were from the king’s private property.
7 E ofereceu Josias aos filhos do povo cordeiros e cabritos do rebanho, todos para os sacrifícios da Páscoa, em número de trinta mil, por todos que ali se achavam, e, de bois, três mil; isso era da fazenda do rei.

8 And his captains freely gave an offering to the people, the priests, and the Levites. Hilkiah and Zechariah and Jehiel, the rulers of the house of God, gave to the priests for the Passover offerings two thousand, six hundred small cattle and three hundred oxen.
8 Também fizeram os seus príncipes ofertas voluntárias ao povo, aos sacerdotes e aos levitas; Hilquias, e Zacarias, e Jeiel, maioral da Casa de Deus, deram aos sacerdotes para os sacrifícios da Páscoa duas mil e seiscentas reses de gado miúdo e trezentos bois.

9 And Conaniah and Shemaiah and Nethanel, his brothers, and Hashabiah and Jeiel and Jozabad, the chiefs of the Levites, gave to the Levites for the Passover offerings five thousand small cattle and five hundred oxen.
9 E Conanias, e Semaías, e Natanael, seus irmãos, como também Hasabias, e Jeiel, e Jozabade, maiorais dos levitas, apresentaram aos levitas, para os sacrifícios da Páscoa, cinco mil reses de gado miúdo, e quinhentos bois.

10 So everything was made ready and the priests took their places with the Levites in their divisions, as the king had said.
10 Assim se preparou o serviço; e puseram-se os sacerdotes nos seus postos, e os levitas, nas suas turmas, conforme o mandado do rei.

11 And they put the Passover lambs to death, the blood being drained out by the priests when it was given to them, and the Levites did the skinning.
11 Então, imolaram a Páscoa; e os sacerdotes aspergiam o sangue recebido nas suas mãos, e os levitas esfolavam as reses.

12 And they took away the burned offerings, so that they might give them to be offered to the Lord for the divisions of the families of the people, as it is recorded in the book of Moses. And they did the same with the oxen.
12 E puseram de parte os holocaustos para os darem aos filhos do povo, segundo as divisões das casas paternas, para o oferecerem ao SENHOR, como está escrito no livro de Moisés; e assim fizeram com os bois.

13 And the Passover lamb was cooked over the fire, as it says in the law; and the holy offerings were cooked in pots and basins and vessels, and taken quickly to all the people.
13 E assaram a Páscoa no fogo, segundo o rito, e as ofertas sagradas cozeram em panelas, e em caldeiras, e em frigideiras, e prontamente as repartiram entre todo o povo.

14 And after that, they made ready for themselves and for the priests; for the priests, the sons of Aaron, were offering the burned offerings and the fat till night; so the Levites made ready what was needed for themselves and for the priests, the sons of Aaron.
14 Depois, prepararam o que era preciso para si e para os sacerdotes, porque os sacerdotes, filhos de Arão, se ocuparam até à noite com o sacrifício dos holocaustos e da gordura; por isso é que os levitas prepararam para si e para os sacerdotes, filhos de Arão.

15 And the sons of Asaph, the makers of melody, were in their places, as ordered by David and Asaph and Heman and Jeduthun, the king’s seer; and the door-keepers were stationed at every door: there was no need for them to go away from their places, for their brothers the Levites made ready for them.
15 E os cantores, filhos de Asafe, estavam no seu posto, segundo o mandado de Davi, e de Asafe, e de Hemã, e de Jedutum, vidente do rei, como também os porteiros, a cada porta; não necessitaram de se desviarem do seu ministério, porquanto seus irmãos, os levitas, preparavam o necessário para eles.

16 So everything needed for the worship of the Lord was made ready that same day, for the keeping of the Passover and the offering of burned offerings on the altar of the Lord, as King Josiah had given orders.
16 Assim se estabeleceu todo o serviço do SENHOR naquele dia, para celebrar a Páscoa e sacrificar holocaustos sobre o altar do SENHOR, segundo o mandado do rei Josias.

17 And all the children of Israel who were present kept the Passover and the feast of unleavened bread at that time for seven days.
17 E os filhos de Israel que ali se acharam celebraram a Páscoa naquele tempo e a Festa dos Pães Asmos, durante sete dias.

18 No Passover like it had been kept in Israel from the days of Samuel the prophet; and not one of the kings of Israel had ever kept a Passover like the one kept by Josiah and the priests and the Levites and all those of Judah and Israel who were present, and the people of Jerusalem.
18 Nunca, pois, se celebrou tal Páscoa em Israel, desde os dias do profeta Samuel, nem nenhuns reis de Israel celebraram tal Páscoa como a que celebrou Josias com os sacerdotes, e levitas, e todo o Judá e Israel que ali se acharam, e os habitantes de Jerusalém.

19 In the eighteenth year of the rule of Josiah this Passover was kept.
19 No ano décimo oitavo do reinado de Josias, se celebrou essa Páscoa.

20 After all this, and after Josiah had put the house in order, Neco, king of Egypt, went up to make war at Carchemish by the river Euphrates; and Josiah went out against him.
20 Depois de tudo isso, havendo Josias já preparado a casa, subiu Neco, rei do Egito, para guerrear contra Carquemis, junto ao Eufrates; e Josias lhe saiu ao encontro.

21 But he sent representatives to him, saying, What have I to do with you, O king of Judah? I have not come against you this day, but against those with whom I am at war; and God has given me orders to go forward quickly: keep out of God’s way, for he is with me, or he will send destruction on you.
21 Então, ele lhe mandou mensageiros, dizendo: Que tenho eu que fazer contigo, rei de Judá? Quanto a ti, contra ti não venho hoje, senão contra a casa que me faz guerra; e disse Deus que me apressasse; guarda-te de te opores a Deus, que é comigo, para que não te destrua.

22 However, Josiah would not go back; but keeping to his purpose of fighting against him, and giving no attention to the words of Neco, which came from God, he went forward to the fight in the valley of Megiddo.
22 Porém Josias não virou dele o rosto; antes, se disfarçou, para pelejar com ele; e não deu ouvidos às palavras de Neco, que saíram da boca de Deus; antes, veio pelejar no vale de Megido.

23 And the bowmen sent their arrows at King Josiah, and the king said to his servants, Take me away, for I am badly wounded.
23 E os flecheiros atiraram no rei Josias; então, o rei disse a seus servos: Tirai-me daqui, porque estou gravemente ferido.

24 So his servants took him out of the line of war-carriages, and put him in his second carriage and took him to Jerusalem, where he came to his end, and they put his body in the resting-place of his fathers. And in all Judah and Jerusalem there was great weeping for Josiah.
24 E seus servos o tiraram do carro, e o levaram no segundo carro que tinha, e o trouxeram a Jerusalém; e morreu, e o sepultaram nos sepulcros de seus pais; e todo o Judá e Jerusalém tomaram luto por Josias.

25 And Jeremiah made a song of grief for Josiah; and to this day Josiah is named by all the makers of melody, men and women, in their songs of grief; they made it a rule in Israel; and the songs are recorded among the songs of grief.
25 E Jeremias fez uma lamentação sobre Josias; e todos os cantores e cantoras falaram de Josias nas suas lamentações, até ao dia de hoje; porque as deram por estatuto em Israel; e eis que estão escritas na coleção de lamentações.

26 Now the rest of the acts of Josiah, and the good he did, in keeping with what is recorded in the law of the Lord,
26 Quanto ao mais dos atos de Josias, e às suas beneficências, conforme está escrito na Lei do SENHOR,

27 And all his acts, first and last, are recorded in the book of the kings of Israel and Judah.
27 e aos seus atos, tanto os primeiros como os últimos, eis que estão escritos no livro da história dos reis de Israel e de Judá.

2 Chronicles 36

1 Then the people of the land took Jehoahaz, the son of Josiah, and made him king in Jerusalem in place of his father.
1 Então, o povo da terra tomou a Joacaz, filho de Josias, e o fez rei em lugar de seu pai, em Jerusalém.

2 Jehoahaz was twenty-three years old when he became king; he was ruling in Jerusalem for three months.
2 Era Joacaz da idade de vinte e três anos quando começou a reinar e três meses reinou em Jerusalém.

3 Then the king of Egypt took the kingdom from him in Jerusalem, and put on the land a tax of a hundred talents of silver and a talent of gold.
3 Porque o rei do Egito o depôs em Jerusalém e condenou a terra à contribuição de cem talentos de prata e um talento de ouro.

4 And the king of Egypt made Eliakim his brother king over Judah and Jerusalem, changing his name to Jehoiakim. And Neco took his brother Jehoahaz away to Egypt.
4 E o rei do Egito pôs a Eliaquim, irmão de Joacaz, rei sobre Judá e Jerusalém e mudou-lhe o nome para Jeoaquim; mas a seu irmão Joacaz tomou Neco e levou-o para o Egito.

5 Jehoiakim was twenty-five years old when he became king; he was ruling in Jerusalem for eleven years, and he did evil in the eyes of the Lord his God.
5 Era Jeoaquim de vinte e cinco anos de idade quando começou a reinar e onze anos reinou em Jerusalém; e fez o que era mau aos olhos do SENHOR, seu Deus.

6 Nebuchadnezzar, king of Babylon, came up against him, and took him away in chains to Babylon.
6 Subiu, pois, contra ele Nabucodonosor, rei da Babilônia e o amarrou com cadeias, para o levar à Babilônia.

7 And Nebuchadnezzar took away some of the vessels of the Lord’s house, and put them in the house of his god in Babylon.
7 Também alguns dos utensílios da Casa do SENHOR levou Nabucodonosor para a Babilônia e pô-los no seu templo em Babilônia.

8 Now the rest of the acts of Jehoiakim and the disgusting things he did, and all there is to be said against him, are recorded in the book of the kings of Israel and Judah; and Jehoiachin his son became king in his place.
8 Quanto ao mais dos atos de Jeoaquim, e às abominações que fez, e ao mais que se achou nele, eis que estão escritos no livro da história dos reis de Israel e de Judá; e Joaquim, seu filho, reinou em seu lugar.

9 Jehoiachin was eighteen years old when he became king; he was ruling in Jerusalem for three months and ten days, and he did evil in the eyes of the Lord.
9 Era Joaquim da idade de oito anos quando começou a reinar e três meses e dez dias reinou em Jerusalém; e fez o que era mau aos olhos do SENHOR.

10 In the spring of the year King Nebuchadnezzar sent and took him away to Babylon, with the beautiful vessels of the house of the Lord, and made Zedekiah, his father’s brother, king over Judah and Jerusalem.
10 E, no decurso de um ano, o rei Nabucodonosor mandou que o levassem à Babilônia, com também os mais preciosos utensílios da Casa do SENHOR, e pôs a Zedequias, seu irmão, rei sobre Judá e Jerusalém.

11 Zedekiah was twenty-one years old when he became king; he was ruling in Jerusalem for eleven years.
11 Era Zedequias da idade de vinte e cinco anos quando começou a reinar e onze anos reinou em Jerusalém.

12 He did evil in the eyes of the Lord, and did not make himself low before Jeremiah the prophet who gave him the word of the Lord.
12 E fez o que era mau aos olhos do SENHOR, seu Deus; nem se humilhou perante o profeta Jeremias, que falava da parte do SENHOR.

13 And he took up arms against King Nebuchadnezzar, though he had made him take an oath by God; but he made his neck stiff and his heart hard, turning away from the Lord, the God of Israel.
13 Além disso, também se rebelou contra o rei Nabucodonosor, que o tinha ajuramentado por Deus; mas endureceu a sua cerviz e tanto se obstinou no seu coração, que se não converteu ao SENHOR, Deus de Israel.

14 And more than this, all the great men of Judah and the priests and the people made their sin great, turning to all the disgusting ways of the nations; and they made unclean the house of the Lord which he had made holy in Jerusalem.
14 Também todos os chefes dos sacerdotes e o povo aumentavam de mais em mais as transgressões, segundo todas as abominações dos gentios; e contaminaram a Casa do SENHOR, que ele tinha santificado em Jerusalém.

15 And the Lord, the God of their fathers, sent word to them by his servants, sending early and frequently, because he had pity on his people and on his living-place;
15 E o SENHOR, Deus de seus pais, lhes enviou a sua palavra pelos seus mensageiros, madrugando e enviando-lhos, porque se compadeceu do seu povo e da sua habitação.

16 But they put shame on the servants of God, making sport of his words and laughing at his prophets, till the wrath of God was moved against his people, till there was no help.
16 Porém zombaram dos mensageiros de Deus, e desprezaram as suas palavras, e escarneceram dos seus profetas, até que o furor do SENHOR subiu tanto, contra o seu povo, que mais nenhum remédio houve.

17 So he sent against them the king of the Chaldaeans, who put their young men to death with the sword in the house of their holy place, and had no pity for any, young man or virgin, old man or white-haired: God gave them all into his hands.
17 Porque fez subir contra eles o rei dos caldeus, o qual matou os seus jovens à espada, na casa do seu santuário; e não teve piedade nem dos jovens, nem das moças, nem dos velhos, nem dos decrépitos; a todos os deu nas suas mãos.

18 And all the vessels of the house of God, great and small, and the stored wealth of the Lord’s house and the wealth of the king and his chiefs, he took away to Babylon.
18 E todos os utensílios da Casa de Deus, grandes e pequenos, e os tesouros da Casa do SENHOR, e os tesouros do rei e dos seus príncipes, tudo levou para a Babilônia.

19 And the house of God was burned and the wall of Jerusalem broken down; all its great houses were burned with fire and all its beautiful vessels given up to destruction.
19 E queimaram a Casa de Deus, e derribaram os muros de Jerusalém, e todos os seus palácios queimaram, destruindo também todos os seus preciosos objetos.

20 And all who had not come to death by the sword he took away prisoners to Babylon; and they became servants to him and to his sons till the kingdom of Persia came to power:
20 E os que escaparam da espada levou para a Babilônia; e fizeram-se servos dele e de seus filhos, até ao tempo do reino da Pérsia,

21 So that the words of the Lord, which he said by the mouth of Jeremiah, might come true, till the land had had pleasure in her Sabbaths; for as long as she was waste the land kept the Sabbath, till seventy years were complete.
21 para que se cumprisse a palavra do SENHOR, pela boca de Jeremias, até que a terra se agradasse dos seus sábados; todos os dias da desolação repousou, até que os setenta anos se cumpriram.

22 Now in the first year of Cyrus, king of Persia, in order that the words which the Lord had said by the mouth of Jeremiah might come true, the spirit of Cyrus, king of Persia, was moved by the Lord, and he made a public statement and had it given out through all his kingdom and put in writing, saying,
22 Porém, no primeiro ano de Ciro, rei da Pérsia (para que se cumprisse a palavra do SENHOR, pela boca de Jeremias), despertou o SENHOR o espírito de Ciro, rei da Pérsia, o qual fez passar pregão por todo o seu reino, como também por escrito, dizendo:

23 Cyrus, king of Persia, has said, All the kingdoms of the earth have been given to me by the Lord, the God of heaven; and he has made me responsible for building a house for him in Jerusalem, which is in Judah. Whoever there is among you of all his people, may the Lord his God be with him and let him go up.
23 Assim diz Ciro, rei da Pérsia: O SENHOR, Deus dos céus, me deu todos os reinos da terra e me encarregou de lhe edificar uma casa em Jerusalém, que está em Judá; quem, dentre vós é de todo o seu povo, que suba, e o SENHOR, seu Deus, seja com ele.
