2 Kings 1

1 After the death of Ahab, Moab made itself free from the authority of Israel.
1 E, depois da morte de Acabe, Moabe se revoltou contra Israel.

2 Now Ahaziah had a fall from the window of his room in Samaria, and was ill. And he sent men, and said to them, Put a question to Baal-zebub, the god of Ekron, about the outcome of my disease, to see if I will get well or not.
2 E caiu Acazias pelas grades de um quarto alto, que tinha em Samaria, e adoeceu; e enviou mensageiros e disse-lhes: Ide e perguntai a Baal-Zebube, deus de Ecrom, se sararei desta doença.

3 But the angel of the Lord said to Elijah the Tishbite, Go now, and, meeting the men sent by the king of Samaria, say to them, Is it because there is no God in Israel, that you are going to get directions from Baal-zebub, the god of Ekron?
3 Mas o anjo do SENHOR disse a Elias, o tisbita: Levanta-te, sobe para te encontrares com os mensageiros do rei de Samaria e dize-lhes: Porventura, não há Deus em Israel, para irdes consultar a Baal-Zebube, deus de Ecrom?

4 Give ear then to the words of the Lord: You will never again get down from the bed on to which you have gone up, but death will certainly come to you. Then Elijah went away.
4 E, por isso, assim diz o SENHOR: Da cama, a que subiste, não descerás, mas sem falta morrerás. Então, Elias partiu.

5 And the men he had sent came back to the king; and he said to them, Why have you come back?
5 E os mensageiros voltaram para o rei, e ele lhes disse: Que há, que voltastes?

6 And they said to him, On our way we had a meeting with a man who said, Go back to the king who sent you and say to him, The Lord says, Is it because there is no God in Israel that you send to put a question to Baal-zebub, the god of Ekron? For this reason, you will not come down from the bed on to which you have gone up, but death will certainly come to you.
6 E eles lhe disseram: Um homem nos saiu ao encontro e nos disse: Ide, voltai para o rei que vos mandou e dizei-lhe: Assim diz o SENHOR: Porventura, não há Deus em Israel, para que mandes consultar a Baal-Zebube, deus de Ecrom? Portanto, da cama, a que subiste, não descerás, mas sem falta morrerás.

7 And he said to them, What sort of a man was it who came and said these words to you?
7 E ele lhes disse: Qual era o trajo do homem que vos veio ao encontro e vos falou estas palavras?

8 And they said in answer, He was a man clothed in a coat of hair, with a leather band about his body. Then he said, It is Elijah the Tishbite.
8 E eles lhe disseram: Era um homem vestido de pêlos e com os lombos cingidos de um cinto de couro. Então, disse ele: É Elias, o tisbita.

9 Then the king sent to him a captain of fifty with his fifty men; and he went up to him where he was seated on the top of a hill, and said to him, O man of God, the king has said, Come down.
9 Então, lhe enviou um capitão de cinqüenta; e, subindo a ele (porque eis que estava assentado no cume do monte), disse-lhe: Homem de Deus, o rei diz: Desce.

10 And Elijah in answer said to the captain of fifty, If I am a man of God, may fire come down from heaven on you and on your fifty men, and put an end to you. Then fire came down from heaven and put an end to him and his fifty men.
10 Mas Elias respondeu e disse ao capitão de cinqüenta: Se eu, pois, sou homem de Deus, desça fogo do céu e te consuma a ti e aos teus cinqüenta. Então, fogo desceu do céu e o consumiu a ele e aos seus cinqüenta.

11 Then the king sent another captain of fifty with his fifty men; and he said to Elijah, O man of God, the king says, Come down quickly.
11 E tornou o rei a enviar-lhe outro capitão de cinqüenta, com os seus cinqüenta; este lhe falou e disse: Homem de Deus, assim diz o rei: Desce depressa.

12 And Elijah in answer said, If I am a man of God, may fire come down from heaven on you and on your fifty men, and put an end to you. And the fire of God came down from heaven, and put an end to him and his fifty men.
12 E respondeu Elias e disse-lhe: Se eu sou homem de Deus, desça fogo do céu e te consuma a ti e aos teus cinqüenta. Então, fogo de Deus desceu do céu e o consumiu a ele e aos seus cinqüenta.

13 Then he sent a third captain of fifty with his fifty men; and the third captain of fifty went up, and falling on his knees before Elijah, requesting mercy of him, said, O man of God, let my life and the life of these your fifty servants be of value to you.
13 E tornou o rei a enviar outro capitão dos terceiros cinqüenta, com os seus cinqüenta; então, subiu o capitão de cinqüenta, e veio, e pôs-se de joelhos diante de Elias, e suplicou-lhe, e disse-lhe: Homem de Deus, seja, peço-te, preciosa aos teus olhos a minha vida e a vida destes cinqüenta teus servos.

14 For fire came down from heaven and put an end to the first two captains of fifty and their fifties; but now let my life be of value in your eyes.
14 Eis que fogo desceu do céu e consumiu aqueles dois primeiros capitães de cinqüenta, com os seus cinqüenta; porém, agora, seja preciosa aos teus olhos a minha vida.

15 Then the angel of the Lord said to Elijah, Go down with him; have no fear of him. So he got up and went down with him to the king.
15 Então, o anjo do SENHOR disse a Elias: Desce com este, não temas. E levantou-se e desceu com ele ao rei.

16 And he said to him, This is the word of the Lord: Because you sent men to put a question to Baal-zebub, the god of Ekron, for this reason you will never again get down from the bed on to which you have gone up, but death will certainly come to you.
16 E disse-lhe: Assim diz o SENHOR: Por que enviaste mensageiros a consultar a Baal-Zebube, deus de Ecrom? Porventura, é porque não há Deus em Israel, para consultar a sua palavra? Portanto, desta cama, a que subiste, não descerás, mas certamente morrerás.

17 So death came to him, as the Lord had said by the mouth of Elijah. And Jehoram became king in his place in the second year of the rule of Jehoram, son of Jehoshaphat, king of Judah; because he had no son.
17 Assim, pois, morreu, conforme a palavra do SENHOR, que Elias falara; e Jorão começou a reinar no seu lugar, no ano segundo de Jeorão, filho de Josafá, rei de Judá, porquanto não tinha filho.

18 Now the rest of the acts of Ahaziah, are they not recorded in the book of the history of the kings of Israel?
18 O mais dos feitos de Acazias, que tinha feito, porventura, não está escrito no livro das Crônicas dos Reis de Israel?

2 Kings 2

1 Now when the Lord was about to take Elijah up to heaven in a great wind, Elijah went with Elisha from Gilgal.
1 Sucedeu, pois, que, havendo o SENHOR de elevar a Elias num redemoinho ao céu, Elias partiu com Eliseu de Gilgal.

2 And Elijah said to Elisha, Come no farther for the Lord has sent me to Beth-el. But Elisha said, As the Lord is living and as your soul is living, I will not be parted from you. So they went down to Beth-el.
2 E disse Elias a Eliseu: Fica-te aqui, porque o SENHOR me enviou a Betel. Porém Eliseu disse: Vive o SENHOR, e vive a tua alma, que te não deixarei. E assim foram a Betel.

3 And at Beth-el the sons of the prophets came out to Elisha and said, Has it been made clear to you that the Lord is going to take away your master from over you today? And he said, Yes, I have knowledge of it: say no more.
3 Então, os filhos dos profetas que estavam em Betel saíram a Eliseu e lhe disseram: Sabes que o SENHOR, hoje, tomará o teu senhor por de cima da tua cabeça? E ele disse: Também eu bem o sei; calai-vos.

4 Then Elijah said to him, Come no farther, for the Lord has sent me to Jericho. But he said, As the Lord is living and as your soul is living, I will not be parted from you. So they went on to Jericho.
4 E Elias lhe disse: Eliseu, fica-te aqui, porque o SENHOR me enviou a Jericó. Porém ele disse: Vive o SENHOR, e vive a tua alma, que te não deixarei. E assim vieram a Jericó.

5 And at Jericho the sons of the prophets came up to Elisha and said to him, Has it been made clear to you that the Lord is going to take away your master from over you today? And he said in answer, Yes, I have knowledge of it: say no more.
5 Então, os filhos dos profetas que estavam em Jericó se chegaram a Eliseu e lhe disseram: Sabes que o SENHOR, hoje, tomará o teu senhor por de cima da tua cabeça? E ele disse: Também eu bem o sei; calai-vos.

6 Then Elijah said to him, Come no farther, for the Lord has sent me to Jordan. But he said, As the Lord is living and as your soul is living, I will not be parted from you. So they went on together.
6 E Elias disse: Fica-te aqui, porque o SENHOR me enviou ao Jordão. Mas ele disse: Vive o SENHOR, e vive a tua alma, que te não deixarei. E assim ambos foram juntos.

7 And fifty men of the sons of the prophets went out and took their places facing them a long way off, while the two of them were by the edge of Jordan.
7 E foram cinqüenta homens dos filhos dos profetas e, de longe, pararam defronte; e eles ambos pararam junto ao Jordão.

8 Then Elijah took off his robe, and, rolling it up, gave the water a blow with it, and the waters were parted, flowing back this way and that, so that they went over on dry land.
8 Então Elias tomou a sua capa, e a dobrou, e feriu as águas, as quais se dividiram para as duas bandas; e passaram ambos em seco.

9 And when they had come to the other side, Elijah said to Elisha, Say what you would have me do for you before I am taken from you. And Elisha said, Be pleased to let a special measure of your spirit be on me.
9 Sucedeu, pois, que, havendo eles passado, Elias disse a Eliseu: Pede-me o que queres que te faça, antes que seja tomado de ti. E disse Eliseu: Peço-te que haja porção dobrada de teu espírito sobre mim.

10 And he said, You have made a hard request: still, if you see me when I am taken from you, you will get your desire; but if not, it will not be so.
10 E disse: Coisa dura pediste; se me vires quando for tomado de ti, assim se te fará; porém, se não, não se fará.

11 And while they went on their way, going on talking together, suddenly there were carriages and horses of fire separating them from one another and Elijah went up to heaven in a great wind.
11 E sucedeu que, indo eles andando e falando, eis que um carro de fogo, com cavalos de fogo, os separou um do outro; e Elias subiu ao céu num redemoinho.

12 And when Elisha saw it he gave a cry, My father, my father, the carriages of Israel and its horsemen! And he saw him no longer; and he was full of grief.
12 O que vendo Eliseu, clamou: Meu pai, meu pai, carros de Israel e seus cavaleiros! E nunca mais o viu; e, tomando das suas vestes, as rasgou em duas partes.

13 Then he took up Elijah’s robe, which had been dropped from him, and went back till he came to the edge of Jordan.
13 Também levantou a capa de Elias, que lhe caíra; e voltou-se e parou à borda do Jordão.

14 And he took Elijah’s robe, which had been dropped from him, and giving the water a blow with it, said, Where is the Lord, the God of Elijah? and at his blow the waters were parted this way and that; and Elisha went over.
14 E tomou a capa de Elias, que lhe caíra, e feriu as águas, e disse: Onde está o SENHOR, Deus de Elias? Então, feriu as águas, e se dividiram elas para uma e outra banda; e Eliseu passou.

15 And when the sons of the prophets who were facing him at Jericho saw him, they said, The spirit of Elijah is resting on Elisha. And they came out to him, and went down on the earth before him.
15 Vendo-o, pois, os filhos dos profetas que estavam defronte em Jericó, disseram: O espírito de Elias repousa sobre Eliseu. E vieram-lhe ao encontro e se prostraram diante dele em terra.

16 And they said, Your servants have with us here fifty strong men; be pleased to let them go in search of Elijah; for it may be that the spirit of the Lord has taken him up and put him down on some mountain or in some valley. But he said, Do not send them.
16 E disseram-lhe: Eis que, com teus servos, há cinqüenta homens valentes; ora, deixa-os ir para buscar teu senhor; pode ser que o elevasse o Espírito do SENHOR e o lançasse em algum dos montes ou em algum dos vales. Porém ele disse: Não os envieis.

17 But when they kept on requesting him, he was shamed and said, Send, then. So they sent fifty men; but after searching for three days, they came back without having seen him.
17 Mas eles apertaram com ele, até se enfastiar; e disse-lhes: Enviai. E enviaram cinqüenta homens, que o buscaram três dias, porém não o acharam.

18 And they came back to him, while he was still at Jericho; and he said to them, Did I not say to you, Go not?
18 Então, voltaram para ele, tendo ele ficado em Jericó; e disse-lhes: Eu não vos disse que não fôsseis?

19 Now the men of the town said to Elisha, You see that the position of this town is good; but the water is bad, causing the young of the cattle to come to birth dead.
19 E os homens da cidade disseram a Eliseu: Eis que boa é a habitação desta cidade, como o meu senhor vê; porém as águas são más, e a terra é estéril.

20 So he said, Get me a new vessel, and put salt in it; and they took it to him.
20 E ele disse: Trazei-me uma salva nova e ponde nela sal. E lha trouxeram.

21 Then he went out to the spring from which the water came, and put salt in it, and said, The Lord says, Now I have made this water sweet; no longer will it be death-giving or unfertile.
21 Então, saiu ele ao manancial das águas e deitou sal nele; e disse: Assim diz o SENHOR: Sararei estas águas; não haverá mais nelas morte nem esterilidade.

22 And the water was made sweet again to this day, as Elisha said.
22 Ficaram, pois, sãs aquelas águas até ao dia de hoje, conforme a palavra que Eliseu tinha dito.

23 Then from there he went up to Beth-el; and on his way, some little boys came out from the town and made sport of him, crying, Go up, old no-hair! go up, old no-hair!
23 Então, subiu dali a Betel; e, subindo ele pelo caminho, uns rapazes pequenos saíram da cidade, e zombavam dele, e diziam-lhe: Sobe, calvo, sobe, calvo!

24 And turning back, he saw them, and put a curse on them in the name of the Lord. And two she-bears came out of the wood and put forty-two of the children to death.
24 E, virando-se ele para trás, os viu e os amaldiçoou no nome do SENHOR; então, duas ursas saíram do bosque e despedaçaram quarenta e dois daqueles pequenos.

25 From there he went to Mount Carmel, and came back from there to Samaria.
25 E foi-se dali para o monte Carmelo e dali voltou para Samaria.

2 Kings 3

1 And Jehoram, the son of Ahab, became king over Israel in Samaria in the eighteenth year of the rule of Jehoshaphat, king of Judah; and he was king for twelve years.
1 E Jorão, filho de Acabe, começou a reinar sobre Israel, em Samaria, no décimo oitavo ano de Josafá, rei de Judá; e reinou doze anos.

2 He did evil in the eyes of the Lord; but not like his father and his mother, for he put away the stone pillar of Baal which his father had made.
2 E fez o que era mau aos olhos do SENHOR; porém não como seu pai, nem como sua mãe; porque tirou a estátua de Baal, que seu pai fizera.

3 But still he did the same sins which Jeroboam, the son of Nebat, did and made Israel do; he went on in them.
3 Contudo, aderiu aos pecados de Jeroboão, filho de Nebate, que fizera pecar a Israel; não se apartou deles.

4 Now Mesha, king of Moab, was a sheep-farmer; and he gave regularly to the king of Israel the wool from a hundred thousand lambs and a hundred thousand sheep.
4 Então, Mesa, rei dos moabitas, era contratador de gado e pagava ao rei de Israel cem mil cordeiros, e cem mil carneiros com a sua lã.

5 But when Ahab was dead, the king of Moab got free from the authority of the king of Israel.
5 Sucedeu, porém, que, morrendo Acabe, se revoltou o rei dos moabitas contra o rei de Israel.

6 At that time, King Jehoram went out from Samaria and got all Israel together in fighting order.
6 Por isso, Jorão, ao mesmo tempo, saiu de Samaria e fez revista de todo o Israel.

7 And he sent to Jehoshaphat, king of Judah, saying, The king of Moab has got free from my authority: will you go with me to make war on Moab? And he said, I will go with you: I am as you are, my people as your people, and my horses as your horses.
7 E foi e enviou a Josafá, rei de Judá, dizendo: O rei dos moabitas se revoltou contra mim; irás tu comigo à guerra contra os moabitas? E disse ele: Subirei e eu serei como tu, o meu povo, como o teu povo, e os meus cavalos, como os teus cavalos.

8 And he said, Which way are we to go? And he said in answer, By the waste land of Edom.
8 E ele disse: Por que caminho subiremos? Então disse ele: Pelo caminho do deserto de Edom.

9 So the king of Israel went with the king of Judah and the king of Edom by a roundabout way for seven days: and there was no water for the army or for the beasts they had with them.
9 E partiu o rei de Israel, e o rei de Judá, e o rei de Edom; e andaram rodeando com uma marcha de sete dias, e o exército e o gado que os seguia não tinham água.

10 And the king of Israel said, Here is trouble: for the Lord has got these three kings together to give them into the hands of Moab.
10 Então, disse o rei de Israel: Ah! Que o SENHOR chamou a estes três reis, para os entregar nas mãos dos moabitas.

11 But Jehoshaphat said, Is there no prophet of the Lord here, through whom we may get directions from the Lord? And one of the king of Israel’s men said in answer, Elisha, the son of Shaphat, is here, who was servant to Elijah.
11 E disse Josafá: Não há aqui algum profeta do SENHOR, para que consultemos ao SENHOR por ele? Então, respondeu um dos servos do rei de Israel e disse: Aqui está Eliseu, filho de Safate, que deitava água sobre as mãos de Elias.

12 And Jehoshaphat said, The word of the Lord is with him. So the king of Israel and Jehoshaphat and the king of Edom went down to him.
12 E disse Josafá: Está com ele a palavra do SENHOR. Então, o rei de Israel, e Josafá, e o rei de Edom desceram a ele.

13 But Elisha said to the king of Israel, What have I to do with you? go to the prophets of your father and your mother. And the king of Israel said, No; for the Lord has got these three kings together to give them up into the hands of Moab.
13 Mas Eliseu disse ao rei de Israel: Que tenho eu contigo? Vai aos profetas de teu pai e aos profetas de tua mãe. Porém o rei de Israel lhe disse: Não, porque o SENHOR chamou estes três reis para os entregar nas mãos dos moabitas.

14 Then Elisha said, By the life of the Lord of armies whose servant I am, if it was not for the respect I have for Jehoshaphat, king of Judah, I would not give a look at you, or see you.
14 E disse Eliseu: Vive o SENHOR dos Exércitos, em cuja presença estou, que, se eu não respeitasse a presença de Josafá, rei de Judá, não olharia para ti nem te veria.

15 But now, get me a player of music, and it will come about that while the man is playing, the hand of the Lord will come on me and I will give you the word of the Lord: and they got a player of music, and while the man was playing, the hand of the Lord was on him.
15 Ora, pois, trazei-me um tangedor. E sucedeu que, tangendo o tangedor, veio sobre ele a mão do SENHOR.

16 And he said, The Lord says, I will make this valley full of water-holes.
16 E disse: Assim diz o SENHOR: Fazei neste vale muitas covas.

17 For the Lord says, Though you see no wind or rain, the valley will be full of water, and you and your armies and your beasts will have drink.
17 Porque assim diz o SENHOR: Não vereis vento e não vereis chuva; todavia, este vale se encherá de tanta água, que bebereis vós e o vosso gado e os vossos animais.

18 And this will be only a small thing to the Lord: in addition he will give the Moabites into your hands.
18 E ainda isto é pouco aos olhos do SENHOR; também entregará ele os moabitas nas vossas mãos.

19 And you are to put every walled town to destruction, cutting down every good tree, and stopping up every water-spring, and making all the good land rough with stones.
19 E ferireis todas as cidades fortes, e todas as cidades escolhidas, e todas as boas árvores cortareis, e tapareis todas as fontes de água, e danificareis com pedras todos os bons campos.

20 Now in the morning, about the time when the offering was made, they saw water flowing from the direction of Edom till the country was full of water.
20 E sucedeu que, pela manhã, oferecendo-se a oferta de manjares, eis que vinham as águas pelo caminho de Edom; e a terra se encheu de água.

21 Now all Moab, hearing that the kings had come to make war against them, got together all who were able to take up arms and went forward to the edge of the country.
21 Ouvindo, pois, todos os moabitas que os reis tinham subido para pelejarem contra eles, convocaram a todos os que cingiam cinto e daí para cima e puseram-se às fronteiras.

22 And early in the morning they got up, when the sun was shining on the water, and they saw the water facing them as red as blood.
22 E, levantando-se de madrugada, e saindo o sol sobre as águas, viram os moabitas defronte deles as águas vermelhas como sangue.

23 Then they said, This is blood: it is clear that destruction has come on the kings; they have been fighting one another: now come, Moab, let us take their goods.
23 E disseram: Isto é sangue; certamente que os reis se destruíram à espada e se mataram um ao outro! Agora, pois, à presa, moabitas!

24 But when they came to the tents of Israel, the Israelites came out and made a violent attack on the Moabites, so that they went in flight before them; and they went forward still attacking them;
24 Porém, chegando eles ao arraial de Israel, os israelitas se levantaram, e feriram os moabitas, os quais fugiram diante deles; e ainda os feriram nas suas terras, ferindo ali também os moabitas.

25 Pulling down the towns, covering every good field with stones, stopping up all the water-springs, and cutting down all the good trees; they went on driving Moab before them till only in Kir-hareseth were there any Moabites; and the fighting-men went round the town raining stones on it.
25 E arrasaram as cidades, e cada um lançou a sua pedra em todos os bons campos, e os entulharam, e taparam todas as fontes de águas, e cortaram todas as boas árvores, até que só em Quir-Haresete deixaram ficar as pedras, mas os fundeiros a cercaram e a feriram.

26 And when the king of Moab saw that the fight was going against him, he took with him seven hundred men armed with swords, with the idea of forcing a way through to the king of Aram, but they were not able to do so.
26 Mas, vendo o rei dos moabitas que a peleja prevalecia contra ele, tomou consigo setecentos homens que arrancavam espada, para romperem contra o rei de Edom, porém não puderam.

27 Then he took his oldest son, who would have been king after him, offering him as a burned offering on the wall. So there was great wrath against Israel; and they went away from him, back to their country.
27 Então, tomou a seu filho primogênito, que havia de reinar em seu lugar, e o ofereceu em holocausto sobre o muro; pelo que houve grande indignação em Israel; por isso, retiraram-se dele e voltaram para a sua terra.

2 Kings 4

1 Now a certain woman, the wife of one of the sons of the prophets, came crying to Elisha and said, Your servant my husband is dead; and to your knowledge he was a worshipper of the Lord; but now, the creditor has come to take my two children as servants in payment of his debt.
1 E uma mulher das mulheres dos filhos dos profetas, clamou a Eliseu dizendo: Meu marido, teu servo, morreu; e tu sabes que o teu servo temia ao SENHOR; e veio o credor a levar-me os meus dois filhos para serem servos.

2 Then Elisha said to her, What am I to do for you? say now, what have you in the house? And she said, Your servant has nothing in the house but a pot of oil.
2 E Eliseu lhe disse: Que te hei de eu fazer? Declara-me que é o que tens em casa. E ela disse: Tua serva não tem nada em casa, senão uma botija de azeite.

3 Then he said, Go out to all your neighbours and get vessels, a very great number of them.
3 Então, disse ele: Vai, pede para ti vasos emprestados a todos os teus vizinhos, vasos vazios, não poucos.

4 Then go in, and, shutting the door on yourself and your sons, put oil into all these vessels, putting on one side the full ones.
4 Então, entra, e fecha a porta sobre ti e sobre teus filhos, e deita o azeite em todos aqueles vasos, e põe à parte o que estiver cheio.

5 So she went away, and when the door was shut on her and her sons, they took the vessels to her and she put oil into them.
5 Partiu, pois, dele e fechou a porta sobre si e sobre seus filhos; e eles lhe traziam os vasos, e ela os enchia.

6 And when all the vessels were full, she said to her son, Get me another vessel. And he said, There are no more. And the flow of oil was stopped.
6 E sucedeu que, cheios que foram os vasos, disse a seu filho: Traze-me ainda um vaso. Porém ele lhe disse: Não há mais vaso nenhum. Então, o azeite parou.

7 So she came to the man of God and gave him word of what she had done. And he said, Go and get money for the oil and make payment of your debt, and let the rest be for the needs of yourself and your sons.
7 Então, veio ela e o fez saber ao homem de Deus; e disse ele: Vai, vende o azeite e paga a tua dívida; e tu e teus filhos vivei do resto.

8 Now there came a day when Elisha went to Shunem, and there was a woman of high position living there, who made him come in and have a meal with her. And after that, every time he went by, he went into her house for a meal.
8 Sucedeu também um dia que, indo Eliseu a Suném, havia ali uma mulher rica, a qual o reteve a comer pão; e sucedeu que todas as vezes que passava, ali se dirigia a comer pão.

9 And she said to her husband, Now I see that this is a holy man of God, who comes by day after day.
9 E ela disse a seu marido: Eis que tenho observado que este que passa sempre por nós é um santo homem de Deus.

10 So let us make a little room on the wall; and put a bed there for him, and a table and a seat and a light; so that when he comes to us, he will be able to go in there.
10 Façamos-lhe, pois, um pequeno quarto junto ao muro e ali lhe ponhamos uma cama, e uma mesa, e uma cadeira, e um candeeiro; e há de ser que, vindo ele a nós, para ali se retirará.

11 Now one day, when he had gone there, he went into the little room and took his rest there.
11 E sucedeu um dia que veio ali, e retirou-se àquele quarto, e se deitou ali.

12 And he said to Gehazi, his servant, Send for this Shunammite. So in answer to his voice she came before him.
12 Então, disse ao seu moço Geazi: Chama esta sunamita. E chamando-a ele, ela se pôs diante dele.

13 And he said to him, Now say to her, See, you have taken all this trouble for us; what is to be done for you? will you have any request made for you to the king or the captain of the army? But she said, I am living among my people.
13 Porque lhe dissera: Dize-lhe: Eis que tu nos tens tratado com todo o desvelo; que se há de fazer por ti? Haverá alguma coisa de que se fale por ti ao rei ou ao chefe do exército? E dissera ela: Eu habito no meio do meu povo.

14 So he said, What then is to be done for her? And Gehazi made answer, Still there is this, she has no son and her husband is old.
14 Então, disse ele: Que se há de fazer, pois, por ela? E Geazi disse: Ora, ela não tem filho, e seu marido é velho.

15 Then he said, Send for her. And in answer to his voice she took her place at the door.
15 Pelo que disse ele: Chama-a. E, chamando-a ele, ela se pôs à porta.

16 And Elisha said, At this time in the coming year you will have a son in your arms. And she said, No, my lord, O man of God, do not say what is false to your servant.
16 E ele disse: A este tempo determinado, segundo o tempo da vida, abraçarás um filho. E disse ela: Não, meu senhor, homem de Deus, não mintas à tua serva.

17 Then the woman became with child and gave birth to a son at the time named, in the year after, as Elisha had said to her.
17 E concebeu a mulher e deu à luz um filho, no tal tempo determinado, segundo o tempo da vida que Eliseu lhe dissera.

18 Now one day, when the child was older, he went out to his father to where the grain was being cut.
18 E, crescendo o filho, sucedeu que, um dia, saiu para seu pai, que estava com os segadores.

19 And he said to his father, My head, my head! And the father said to a servant, Take him in to his mother.
19 E disse a seu pai: Ai! A minha cabeça! Ai! A minha cabeça! Então, disse a um moço: Leva-o a sua mãe.

20 And he took him in to his mother, and she took him on her knees and kept him there till the middle of the day, when his life went from him.
20 E ele o tomou e o levou a sua mãe; e esteve sobre os seus joelhos até ao meio-dia e morreu.

21 Then she went up and put him on the bed of the man of God, shutting the door on him, and went out.
21 E subiu ela e o deitou sobre a cama do homem de Deus; e fechou sobre ele a porta e saiu.

22 And she said to her husband, Send me one of the servants and one of the asses so that I may go quickly to the man of God and come back again.
22 E chamou a seu marido e disse: Manda-me já um dos moços e uma das jumentas, para que eu corra ao homem de Deus e volte.

23 And he said, Why are you going to him today? it is not a new moon or a Sabbath. But she said, It is well.
23 E disse ele: Por que vais a ele hoje? Não é lua nova nem sábado. E ela disse: Tudo vai bem.

24 Then she made the ass ready and said to her servant, Keep driving on; do not make a stop without orders from me.
24 Então, albardou a jumenta e disse ao seu moço: Guia, e anda, e não te detenhas no caminhar, senão quando eu to disser.

25 So she went, and came to Mount Carmel, to the man of God. And when the man of God saw her coming in his direction, he said to Gehazi, his servant, See, there is the Shunammite;
25 Partiu ela, pois, e veio ao homem de Deus, ao monte Carmelo; e sucedeu que, vendo-a o homem de Deus de longe, disse a Geazi, seu moço: Eis aí a sunamita.

26 Go quickly to her, and on meeting her say to her, Are you well? and your husband and the child, are they well? And she said in answer, All is well.
26 Agora, pois, corre-lhe ao encontro e dize-lhe: Vai bem contigo? Vai bem com teu marido? Vai bem com teu filho? E ela disse: Vai bem.

27 And when she came to where the man of God was on the hill, she put her hands round his feet; and Gehazi came near with the purpose of pushing her away; but the man of God said, Let her be, for her soul is bitter in her; and the Lord has kept it secret from me, and has not given me word of it.
27 Chegando ela, pois, ao homem de Deus, ao monte, pegou nos seus pés; mas chegou Geazi para a retirar; disse porém o homem de Deus: Deixa-a, porque a sua alma nela está triste de amargura, e o SENHOR mo encobriu e não mo manifestou.

28 Then she said, Did I make a request to my lord for a son? did I not say, Do not give me false words?
28 E disse ela: Pedi eu a meu senhor algum filho? Não disse eu: Não me enganes?

29 Then he said to Gehazi, Make yourself ready, and take my stick in your hand, and go: if you come across anyone on the way, give him no blessing, and if anyone gives you a blessing, give him no answer. And put my stick on the child’s face.
29 E ele disse a Geazi: Cinge os teus lombos, e toma o meu bordão na tua mão, e vai; se encontrares alguém, não o saúdes; e, se alguém te saudar, não lhe respondas; e põe o meu bordão sobre o rosto do menino.

30 But the mother of the child said, As the Lord is living and as your soul is living, I will not go back without you. So he got up and went with her.
30 Porém disse a mãe do menino: Vive o SENHOR, e vive a tua alma, que não te hei de deixar. Então, ele se levantou e a seguiu.

31 And Gehazi went on before them and put the stick on the child’s face; but there was no voice, and no one gave attention. So he went back, and meeting him gave him the news, saying, The child is not awake.
31 E Geazi passou adiante deles e pôs o bordão sobre o rosto do menino; porém não havia nele voz nem sentido; e voltou a encontrar-se com ele e lhe trouxe aviso, dizendo: Não despertou o menino.

32 And when Elisha came into the house he saw the child dead, stretched on his bed.
32 E, chegando Eliseu àquela casa, eis que o menino jazia morto sobre a sua cama.

33 So he went in, and shutting the door on the two of them, made prayer to the Lord.
33 Então, entrou ele, e fechou a porta sobre eles ambos, e orou ao SENHOR.

34 Then he got up on the bed, stretching himself out on the child, and put his mouth on the child’s mouth, his eyes on his eyes and his hands on his hands; and the child’s body became warm.
34 E subiu, e deitou-se sobre o menino, e, pondo a sua boca sobre a boca dele, e os seus olhos sobre os olhos dele, e as suas mãos sobre as mãos dele, se estendeu sobre ele; e a carne do menino aqueceu.

35 Then he came back, and after walking once through the house and back, he went up, stretching himself out on the child seven times; and the child’s eyes became open.
35 Depois, voltou, e passeou naquela casa de uma parte para a outra, e tornou a subir, e se estendeu sobre ele; então, o menino espirrou sete vezes e o menino abriu os olhos.

36 And he gave orders to Gehazi, and said, Send for the Shunammite. And she came in answer to his voice. And he said, Take up your son.
36 Então, chamou a Geazi e disse: Chama essa sunamita. E chamou-a, e veio a ele. E disse ele: Toma o teu filho.

37 And she came in, and went down on her face to the earth at his feet; then she took her son in her arms and went out.
37 E veio ela, e se prostrou a seus pés, e se inclinou à terra; e tomou o seu filho e saiu.

38 And Elisha went back to Gilgal, now there was very little food in the land; and the sons of the prophets were seated before him. And he said to his servant, Put the great pot on the fire, and make soup for the sons of the prophets.
38 E voltando Eliseu a Gilgal, havia fome naquela terra; e os filhos dos profetas estavam assentados na sua presença; e disse ao seu moço: Põe a panela grande ao lume e faze um caldo de ervas para os filhos dos profetas.

39 And one went out into the field to get green plants and saw a vine of the field, and pulling off the fruit of it till the fold of his robe was full, he came back and put the fruit, cut up small, into the pot of soup, having no idea what it was.
39 Então, um saiu ao campo a apanhar ervas, e achou uma parra brava, e colheu dela a sua capa cheia de coloquíntidas; e veio e as cortou na panela do caldo; porque as não conheciam.

40 Then they gave the men soup from the pot. And while they were drinking the soup, they gave a cry, and said, O man of God, there is death in the pot; and they were not able to take any more food.
40 Assim, tiraram de comer para os homens. E sucedeu que, comendo eles daquele caldo, clamaram e disseram: Homem de Deus, há morte na panela. Não puderam comer.

41 But he said, Get some meal. And he put it into the pot, and said, Now give it to the people so that they may have food. And there was nothing bad in the pot.
41 Porém ele disse: Trazei, pois, farinha. E deitou-a na panela e disse: Tirai de comer para o povo. Então, não havia mal nenhum na panela.

42 Now a man came from Baal-shalishah with an offering of first-fruits for the man of God, twenty barley cakes and garden fruit in his bag. And he said, Give these to the people for food.
42 E um homem veio de Baal-Salisa, e trouxe ao homem de Deus pães das primícias, vinte pães de cevada e espigas verdes na sua palha, e disse: Dá ao povo, para que coma.

43 But his servant said, How am I to put this before a hundred men? But he said, Give it to the people for food; for the Lord says, There will be food for them and some over.
43 Porém seu servo disse: Como hei de eu pôr isso diante de cem homens? E disse ele: Dá-o ao povo, para que coma; porque assim diz o SENHOR: Comer-se-á, e sobejará.

44 So he put it before them, and they had a meal and there was more than enough, as the Lord had said.
44 Então, lhos pôs diante, e comeram, e deixaram sobejos, conforme a palavra do SENHOR.

2 Kings 5

1 Now Naaman, chief of the army of the king of Aram, was a man of high position with his master, and greatly respected, because by him the Lord had given salvation to Aram; but he was a leper.
1 E Naamã, chefe do exército do rei da Síria, era um grande homem diante do seu senhor e de muito respeito; porque por ele o SENHOR dera livramento aos siros; e era este varão homem valoroso, porém leproso.

2 Now the Aramaeans had gone out in bands, and taken prisoner from Israel a little girl, who became servant to Naaman’s wife.
2 E saíram tropas da Síria e da terra de Israel levaram presa uma menina, que ficou ao serviço da mulher de Naamã.

3 And she said to her master’s wife, If only my lord would go to the prophet in Samaria, he would make him well.
3 E disse esta à sua senhora: Tomara que o meu senhor estivesse diante do profeta que está em Samaria; ele o restauraria da sua lepra.

4 And someone went and said to his lord, This is what the girl from the land of Israel says.
4 Então, entrou Naamã e o notificou a seu senhor, dizendo: Assim e assim falou a menina que é da terra de Israel.

5 So the king of Aram said, Go then; and I will send a letter to the king of Israel. And he went, taking with him ten talents of silver and six thousand shekels of gold, and ten changes of clothing.
5 Então, disse o rei da Síria: Vai, anda, e enviarei uma carta ao rei de Israel. E foi e tomou na sua mão dez talentos de prata, e seis mil siclos de ouro, e dez mudas de vestes.

6 And he took the letter to the king of Israel, in which the king of Aram had said, See, I have sent my servant Naaman to you to be made well, for he is a leper.
6 E levou a carta ao rei de Israel, dizendo: Logo, em chegando a ti esta carta, saibas que eu te enviei Naamã, meu servo, para que o restaures da sua lepra.

7 But the king of Israel, after reading the letter, was greatly troubled and said, Am I God, to give death and life? why does this man send a leper to me to be made well? is it not clear that he is looking for a cause of war?
7 E sucedeu que, lendo o rei de Israel a carta, rasgou as suas vestes e disse: Sou eu Deus, para matar e para vivificar, para que este envie a mim, para eu restaurar a um homem da sua lepra? Pelo que deveras notai, peço-vos, e vede que busca ocasião contra mim.

8 Now Elisha, the man of God, hearing that the king of Israel had done this, sent to the king, saying, Why are you troubled? send the man to me, so that he may see that there is a prophet in Israel.
8 Sucedeu, porém, que, ouvindo Eliseu, homem de Deus, que o rei de Israel rasgara as suas vestes, mandou dizer ao rei: Por que rasgaste as tuas vestes? Deixa-o vir a mim, e saberá que há profeta em Israel.

9 So Naaman, with all his horses and his carriages, came to the door of Elisha’s house.
9 Veio, pois, Naamã com os seus cavalos e com o seu carro e parou à porta da casa de Eliseu.

10 And Elisha sent a servant to him, saying, Go to Jordan, and after washing seven times in its waters your flesh will be well again and you will be clean.
10 Então, Eliseu lhe mandou um mensageiro, dizendo: Vai, e lava-te sete vezes no Jordão, e a tua carne te tornará, e ficarás purificado.

11 But Naaman was angry and went away and said, I had the idea that he would come out to see such an important person as I am, and make prayer to the Lord his God, and with a wave of his hand over the place make the leper well.
11 Porém Naamã muito se indignou e se foi, dizendo: Eis que eu dizia comigo: Certamente ele sairá, pôr-se-á em pé, e invocará o nome do SENHOR, seu Deus, e passará a sua mão sobre o lugar, e restaurará o leproso.

12 Are not Abana and Pharpar, rivers of Damascus, better than all the waters of Israel? may I not be washed in them and become clean? So turning, he went away in wrath.
12 Não são, porventura, Abana e Farpar, rios de Damasco, melhores do que todas as águas de Israel? Não me poderia eu lavar neles e ficar purificado? E voltou-se e se foi com indignação.

13 Then his servants came to him and said, If the prophet had given you orders to do some great thing, would you not have done it? how much more then, when he says to you, Be washed and become clean?
13 Então, chegaram-se a ele os seus servos, e lhe falaram, e disseram: Meu pai, se o profeta te dissera alguma grande coisa, porventura, não a farias? Quanto mais, dizendo-te ele: Lava-te e ficarás purificado.

14 Then he went down seven times into the waters of Jordan, as the man of God had said; and his flesh became like the flesh of a little child again, and he was clean.
14 Então, desceu e mergulhou no Jordão sete vezes, conforme a palavra do homem de Deus; e a sua carne tornou, como a carne de um menino, e ficou purificado.

15 Then he went back to the man of God, with all his train, and, taking his place before him, said, Now I am certain that there is no God in all the earth, but only in Israel: now then, take an offering from me.
15 Então, voltou ao homem de Deus, ele e toda a sua comitiva, e veio, e pôs-se diante dele, e disse: Eis que tenho conhecido que em toda a terra não há Deus, senão em Israel; agora, pois, te peço que tomes uma bênção do teu servo.

16 But he said, By the life of the Lord whose servant I am, I will take nothing from you. And he did his best to make him take it but he would not.
16 Porém ele disse: Vive o SENHOR, em cuja presença estou, que a não tomarei. E instou com ele para que a tomasse, mas ele recusou.

17 Then Naaman said, If you will not, then let there be given to your servant as much earth as two beasts are able to take on their backs; because from now on, your servant will make no offering or burned offering to other gods, but only to the Lord.
17 E disse Naamã: Seja assim; contudo, dê-se a este teu servo uma carga de terra de um jugo de mulas; porque nunca mais oferecerá este teu servo holocausto nem sacrifício a outros deuses, senão ao SENHOR.

18 But may your servant have the Lord’s forgiveness for this one thing: when my master goes into the house of Rimmon for worship there, supported on my arm, and my head is bent in the house of Rimmon; when his head is bent in the house of Rimmon, may your servant have the Lord’s forgiveness for this thing.
18 Nisso, perdoe o SENHOR a teu servo. Quando meu senhor entra na casa de Rimom, para ali adorar, e ele se encosta na minha mão, e eu também me tenha de encurvar na casa de Rimom; quando assim me encurvar na casa de Rimom, nisso, perdoe o SENHOR a teu servo.

19 And he said to him, Go in peace. And he went from him some distance.
19 E ele lhe disse: Vai em paz. E foi-se dele a uma pequena distância.

20 But Gehazi, the servant of Elisha, the man of God, said, Now my master has taken nothing from Naaman, this Aramaean, of what he would have given him: by the living Lord, I will go after him and get something from him.
20 Então, Geazi, moço de Eliseu, homem de Deus, disse: Eis que meu senhor impediu a este siro Naamã que da sua mão se desse alguma coisa do que trazia; porém, tão certo como vive o SENHOR, que hei de correr atrás dele e tomar dele alguma coisa.

21 So Gehazi went after Naaman. And when Naaman saw him running after him, he got down from his carriage and went back to him and said, Is all well?
21 E foi Geazi em alcance de Naamã; e Naamã, vendo que corria atrás dele, saltou do carro a encontrá-lo e disse-lhe: Vai tudo bem?

22 And he said, All is well: but my master has sent me, saying, Even now, two young men of the sons of the prophets have come to me from the hill-country of Ephraim; will you give me a talent of silver and two changes of clothing for them?
22 E ele disse: Tudo vai bem; meu senhor me mandou dizer: Eis que agora mesmo vieram a mim dois jovens dos filhos dos profetas da montanha de Efraim; dá-lhes, pois, um talento de prata e duas mudas de vestes.

23 And Naaman said, Be good enough to take two talents. And forcing him to take them, he put two talents of silver in two bags, with two changes of clothing, and gave them to his two servants to take before him.
23 E disse Naamã: Sê servido tomar dois talentos. E instou com ele e amarrou dois talentos de prata em dois sacos, com duas mudas de vestes; e pô-las sobre dois dos seus moços, os quais os levaram diante dele.

24 When he came to the hill, he took them from their hands, and put them away in the house; and he sent the men away, and they went.
24 E, chegando ele à altura, tomou-os das suas mãos e os depositou na casa; e despediu aqueles homens, e foram-se.

25 Then he came in and took his place before his master. And Elisha said to him, Where have you come from, Gehazi? And he said, Your servant went nowhere.
25 Então, ele entrou e pôs-se diante de seu senhor. E disse-lhe Eliseu: De onde vens, Geazi? E disse: Teu servo não foi nem a uma nem a outra parte.

26 And he said to him, Did not my heart go with you, when the man got down from his carriage and went back to you? Is this a time for getting money, and clothing, and olive-gardens and vine-gardens, and sheep and oxen, and men-servants and women-servants?
26 Porém ele lhe disse: Porventura, não foi contigo o meu coração, quando aquele homem voltou de sobre o seu carro, a encontrar-te? Era isso ocasião para tomares prata e para tomares vestes, e olivais, e vinhas, e ovelhas, e bois, e servos, e servas?

27 Because of what you have done, the disease of Naaman the leper will take you in its grip, and your seed after you, for ever. And he went out from before him a leper as white as snow.
27 Portanto, a lepra de Naamã se pegará a ti e à tua semente para sempre. Então, saiu de diante dele leproso, branco como a neve.

2 Kings 6

1 Now the sons of the prophets said to Elisha, There is not room enough for us in the place where we are living under your care;
1 E disseram os filhos dos profetas a Eliseu: Eis que o lugar em que habitamos diante da tua face nos é estreito.

2 So let us go to Jordan, and let everyone get to work cutting boards, and we will make a living-place for ourselves there. And he said to them, Go, then.
2 Vamos, pois, até ao Jordão, e tomemos de lá, cada um de nós, uma viga, e façamo-nos ali um lugar, para habitar ali. E disse ele: Ide.

3 And one of them said, Be pleased to go with your servants. And he said, I will go.
3 E disse um: Serve-te de ires com os teus servos. E disse: Eu irei.

4 So he went with them. And when they came to Jordan, they got to work cutting down trees.
4 E foi com eles; e, chegando eles ao Jordão, cortaram madeira.

5 But one of them, while cutting a board, let the head of his axe go into the water; and he gave a cry, and said, This is a bad business, my master, for it is another’s.
5 E sucedeu que, derribando um deles uma viga, o ferro caiu na água; e clamou e disse: Ai! Meu senhor! Porque era emprestado.

6 And the man of God said, Where did it go in? and when he saw the place where it had gone into the water, cutting a stick, he put it into the water, and the iron came up to the top of the water.
6 E disse o homem de Deus: Onde caiu? E, mostrando-lhe ele o lugar, cortou um pau, e o lançou ali, e fez nadar o ferro.

7 Then he said, Take it up. So he put out his hand and took it.
7 E disse: Levanta-o. Então, ele estendeu a sua mão e o tomou.

8 At that time the king of Aram was making war against Israel; and he had a meeting with the chiefs of his army and said, I will be waiting in secret in some named place.
8 E o rei da Síria fazia guerra a Israel; e consultou com os seus servos dizendo: Em tal e em tal lugar estará o meu acampamento.

9 And the man of God sent to the king of Israel, saying, Take care to keep away from that place, for the Aramaeans are waiting there in secret.
9 Mas o homem de Deus enviou ao rei de Israel, dizendo: Guarda-te de passares por tal lugar; porque os siros desceram ali.

10 So the king of Israel sent to the place where the man of God had said there was danger, and kept clear of it more than once.
10 Pelo que o rei de Israel enviou àquele lugar, de que o homem de Deus lhe falara e de que o tinha avisado, e se guardou ali, não uma nem duas vezes.

11 And at this, the mind of the king of Aram was greatly troubled, and he sent for his servants and said to them, Will you not make clear to me which of us is helping the king of Israel?
11 Então, se turbou com este incidente o coração do rei da Síria, e chamou os seus servos, e lhes disse: Não me fareis saber quem dos nossos é pelo rei de Israel?

12 And one of them said, Not one of us, my lord king; but Elisha, the prophet in Israel, gives the king of Israel news of the words you say even in your bedroom.
12 E disse um dos seus servos: Não, ó rei, meu senhor; mas o profeta Eliseu, que está em Israel, faz saber ao rei de Israel as palavras que tu falas na tua câmara de dormir.

13 Then he said, Go and see where he is, so that I may send and get him. And news came to him that he was in Dothan.
13 E ele disse: Vai e vê onde ele está, para que eu envie e mande trazê-lo. E fizeram-lhe saber, dizendo: Eis que está em Dotã.

14 So he sent there horses and carriages and a great army; and they came by night, circling the town.
14 Então, enviou para lá cavalos, e carros, e um grande exército, os quais vieram de noite e cercaram a cidade.

15 Now the servant of the man of God, having got up early and gone out, saw an army with horses and carriages of war all round the town. And the servant said to him, O my master, what are we to do?
15 E o moço do homem de Deus se levantou mui cedo e saiu, e eis que um exército tinha cercado a cidade com cavalos e carros; então, o seu moço lhe disse: Ai! Meu senhor! Que faremos?

16 And he said in answer, Have no fear; those who are with us are more than those who are with them.
16 E ele disse: Não temas; porque mais são os que estão conosco do que os que estão com eles.

17 Then Elisha made a prayer to the Lord, saying, Lord, let his eyes be open so that he may see. And the Lord made the young man’s eyes open; and he saw that all the mountain was full of horses and carriages of fire round Elisha.
17 E orou Eliseu e disse: SENHOR, peço-te que lhe abras os olhos, para que veja. E o SENHOR abriu os olhos do moço, e viu; e eis que o monte estava cheio de cavalos e carros de fogo, em redor de Eliseu.

18 Now when the Aramaeans came down to Elisha, he made a prayer to the Lord saying, Lord, make this people blind. And he made them blind at Elisha’s request.
18 E, como desceram a ele, Eliseu orou ao SENHOR e disse: Fere, peço-te, esta gente de cegueira. E feriu-a de cegueira, conforme a palavra de Eliseu.

19 And Elisha said to them, This is not the way, and this is not the town: come after me so that I may take you to the man you are searching for. And he took them to Samaria.
19 Então, Eliseu lhes disse: Não é este o caminho, nem é esta a cidade; segui-me, e guiar-vos-ei ao homem que buscais. E os guiou a Samaria.

20 And when they had come into Samaria, Elisha said, Lord, let the eyes of these men be open so that they may see. And the Lord made their eyes open, and they saw that they were in the middle of Samaria.
20 E sucedeu que, chegando eles a Samaria, disse Eliseu: Ó SENHOR, abre a estes os olhos para que vejam. O SENHOR lhes abriu os olhos, para que vissem, e eis que estavam no meio de Samaria.

21 And the king of Israel, when he saw them, said to Elisha, My father, am I to put them to the sword?
21 E, quando o rei de Israel os viu, disse a Eliseu: Feri-los-ei, feri-los-ei, meu pai?

22 But he said in answer, You are not to put them to death; have you any right to put to death those whom you have not taken prisoner with your sword and your bow? put bread and water before them, so that they may have food and drink and go to their master.
22 Mas ele disse: Não os ferirás; feririas tu os que tomasses prisioneiros com a tua espada e com o teu arco? Põe-lhes diante pão e água, para que comam e bebam e se vão para seu senhor.

23 So he made ready a great feast for them, and when they had had food and drink, he sent them away and they went back to their master. And no more bands of Aramaeans came into the land of Israel.
23 E apresentou-lhes um grande banquete, e comeram e beberam; e os despediu, e foram para seu senhor; e não entraram mais tropas de siros na terra de Israel.

24 Now after this, Ben-hadad, king of Aram, got together all his army and went up to make an attack on Samaria, shutting the town in on all sides with his forces.
24 E sucedeu, depois disso, que Ben-Hadade, rei da Síria, ajuntou todo o seu exército; e subiu e cercou a Samaria.

25 And they became very short of food in Samaria; for they kept it shut in till the price of an ass’s head was eighty shekels of silver, and a small measure of doves’ droppings was five shekels of silver.
25 E houve grande fome em Samaria, porque eis que a cercaram, até que se vendeu uma cabeça de um jumento por oitenta peças de prata, e a quarta parte de um cabo de esterco de pombas, por cinco peças de prata.

26 And when the king of Israel was going by on the wall, a woman came crying out to him, and said, Help! my lord king.
26 E sucedeu que, passando o rei pelo muro, uma mulher lhe bradou, dizendo: Acode-me, ó rei, meu senhor.

27 And he said, If the Lord does not give you help, where am I to get help for you? from the grain-floor or the grape-crusher?
27 E ele lhe disse: Se o SENHOR te não acode, de onde te acudirei eu, da eira ou do lagar?

28 And the king said to her, What is troubling you? And she said in answer, This woman said to me, Give your son to be our food today, and we will have my son tomorrow.
28 Disse-lhe mais o rei: Que tens? E disse ela: Esta mulher me disse: Dá cá o teu filho, para que hoje o comamos e amanhã comeremos o meu filho.

29 So, boiling my son, we had a meal of him; and on the day after I said to her, Now give your son for our food; but she has put her son in a secret place.
29 Cozemos, pois, o meu filho e o comemos; mas, dizendo-lhe eu ao outro dia: Dá cá o teu filho, para que o comamos, escondeu o seu filho.

30 Then the king, hearing what the woman said, took his robes in his hands, violently parting them; and, while he was walking on the wall, the people, looking, saw that under his robe he had haircloth on his flesh.
30 E sucedeu que, ouvindo o rei as palavras desta mulher, rasgou as suas vestes e ia passando pelo muro; e o povo viu que trazia cilício por dentro, sobre a sua carne.

31 Then he said, May God’s punishment come on me if Elisha, the son of Shaphat, keeps his head on his body after this day.
31 E disse: Assim me faça Deus e outro tanto, se a cabeça de Eliseu, filho de Safate, hoje ficar sobre ele.

32 But Elisha was in his house, and the responsible men were seated there with him; and before the king got there, Elisha said to those who were with him, Do you see how this cruel and violent man has sent to take away my life?
32 Estava, então, Eliseu assentado em sua casa, e também os anciãos estavam assentados com ele. E enviou o rei um homem de diante de si; mas, antes que o mensageiro viesse a ele, disse ele aos anciãos: Vistes como o filho do homicida mandou tirar-me a cabeça? Olhai, quando vier o mensageiro, fechai-lhe a porta e empurrai-o para fora com a porta; porventura, não vem o ruído dos pés de seu senhor após ele?

33 While he was still talking to them, the king came down and said, This evil is from the Lord; why am I to go on waiting any longer for the Lord?
33 E, estando ele ainda falando com eles, eis que o mensageiro descia a ele; e disse o rei: Eis que este mal vem do SENHOR; que mais, pois, esperaria do SENHOR?

2 Kings 7

1 Then Elisha said, Give ear to the word of the Lord: the Lord says, Tomorrow, about this time, a measure of good meal will be offered for the price of a shekel and two measures of barley for a shekel, in the market-place of Samaria.
1 Então, disse Eliseu: Ouvi a palavra do SENHOR; assim diz o SENHOR: Amanhã, quase a este tempo, uma medida de farinha haverá por um siclo, e duas medidas de cevada, por um siclo, à porta de Samaria.

2 Then the captain whose arm was supporting the king said to the man of God, Even if the Lord made windows in heaven, would such a thing be possible? And he said, Your eyes will see it, but you will not have a taste of the food.
2 Porém um capitão, em cuja mão o rei se encostava, respondeu ao homem de Deus e disse: Eis que, ainda que o SENHOR fizesse janelas no céu, poder-se-ia fazer isso? E ele disse: Eis que o verás com os teus olhos, porém daí não comerás.

3 Now there were four lepers seated at the doorway into the town: and they said to one another, Why are we waiting here for death?
3 E quatro homens leprosos estavam à entrada da porta, os quais disseram uns aos outros: Para que estaremos nós aqui até morrermos?

4 If we say, We will go into the town, there is no food in the town, and we will come to our end there; and if we go on waiting here, death will come to us. Come then, let us give ourselves up to the army of Aram: if they let us go on living, then life will be ours; and if they put us to death, then death will be ours.
4 Se dissermos: Entremos na cidade, há fome na cidade, e morreremos aí; e, se ficarmos aqui, também morreremos; vamos nós, pois, agora, e demos conosco no arraial dos siros; se nos deixarem viver, viveremos, e, se nos matarem, tão-somente morreremos.

5 So in the half light they got up to go to the tents of Aram; but when they came to the outer line of tents, there was no one there.
5 E levantaram-se ao crepúsculo, para irem ao arraial dos siros; e, chegando à entrada do arraial dos siros, eis que não havia ali ninguém.

6 For the Lord had made the sound of carriages and horses, and the noise of a great army, come to the ears of the Aramaeans, so that they said to one another, Truly, the king of Israel has got the kings of the Hittites and of the Egyptians for a price to make an attack on us.
6 Porque o Senhor fizera ouvir no arraial dos siros ruído de carros e ruído de cavalos, como o ruído de um grande exército; de maneira que disseram uns aos outros: Eis que o rei de Israel alugou contra nós os reis dos heteus e os reis dos egípcios, para virem contra nós.

7 So they got up and went in flight, in the half light, without their tents or their horses or their asses or any of their goods; they went in flight, fearing for their lives.
7 Pelo que se levantaram, e fugiram no crepúsculo, e deixaram as suas tendas, e os seus cavalos, e os seus jumentos, e o arraial como estava; e fugiram para salvarem a sua vida.

8 And when those lepers came to the outer line of tents, they went into one tent, and had food and drink, and took from it silver and gold and clothing, which they put in a secret place; then they came back and went into another tent from which they took more goods, which they put away in a secret place.
8 Chegando, pois, estes leprosos à entrada do arraial, entraram numa tenda, e comeram, e beberam, e tomaram dali prata, e ouro, e vestes, e foram, e os esconderam; então, voltaram, e entraram em outra tenda, e dali também tomaram alguma coisa, e a esconderam.

9 Then they said to one another, We are not doing right. Today is a day of good news, and we say nothing: if we go on waiting here till the morning, punishment will come to us. So let us go and give the news to those of the king’s house.
9 Então, disseram uns para os outros: Não fazemos bem; este dia é dia de boas-novas, e nos calamos; se esperarmos até à luz da manhã, algum mal nos sobrevirá; pelo que agora vamos e o anunciemos à casa do rei.

10 So they came in, and, crying out to the door-keepers of the town, they gave them the news, saying, We came to the tents of the Aramaeans, and there was no one there and no voice of man, only the horses and the asses in their places, and the tents as they were.
10 Vieram, pois, e bradaram aos porteiros da cidade, e lhes anunciaram, dizendo: Fomos ao arraial dos siros, e eis que lá não havia ninguém, nem voz de homem, porém, só cavalos atados, e jumentos atados, e as tendas como estavam dantes.

11 Then the door-keepers, crying out, gave the news to those inside the king’s house.
11 E chamaram os porteiros, e estes o anunciaram dentro da casa do rei.

12 Then the king got up in the night and said to his servants, This is my idea of what the Aramaeans have done to us. They have knowledge that we are without food; and so they have gone out of their tents, and are waiting secretly in the open country, saying, When they come out of the town, we will take them living and get into the town.
12 E o rei se levantou de noite e disse aos seus servos: Agora, vos farei saber o que é que os siros nos fizeram; bem sabem eles que esfaimados estamos; pelo que saíram do arraial, a esconder-se pelo campo, dizendo: Quando saírem da cidade, então, os tomaremos vivos e entraremos na cidade.

13 And one of his servants said in answer, Send men and let them take five of the horses which we still have in the town; if they keep their lives they will be the same as those of Israel who are still living here; if they come to their death they will be the same as all those of Israel who have gone to destruction: let us send and see.
13 Então, um dos seus servos respondeu e disse: Tomem-se, pois, cinco dos cavalos do resto que ficou aqui dentro, pois toda a multidão dos israelitas que ficaram aqui de resto terá a mesma sorte da multidão dos israelitas que já pereceram; enviemo-los e vejamos.

14 So they took two horsemen; and the king sent them after the army of the Aramaeans, saying, Go and see.
14 Tomaram, pois, dois cavalos de carro; e o rei os enviou após o exército dos siros, dizendo: Ide e vede.

15 And they went after them as far as Jordan; and all the road was covered with clothing and vessels dropped by the Aramaeans in their flight. So those who were sent went back and gave the news to the king.
15 E foram após eles até ao Jordão, e eis que todo o caminho estava cheio de vestes e de aviamentos, que os siros, apressando-se, lançaram fora; e voltaram os mensageiros e o anunciaram ao rei.

16 Then the people went out and took the goods from the tents of the Aramaeans. So a measure of good meal was to be had for the price of a shekel, and two measures of barley for a shekel, as the Lord had said.
16 Então, saiu o povo e saqueou o arraial dos siros; e havia uma medida de farinha por um siclo, e duas medidas de cevada, por um siclo, conforme a palavra do SENHOR.

17 And the king gave authority to that captain, on whose arm he was supported, to have control over the doorway into the town; but he was crushed to death there under the feet of the people, as the man of God had said when the king went down to him.
17 E pusera o rei à porta o capitão em cuja mão se encostava; e o povo o atropelou na porta, e ele morreu, como falara o homem de Deus, o que falou quando o rei descera a ele.

18 So the words of the man of God came true, which he said to the king: Two measures of barley will be offered for the price of a shekel and a measure of good meal for a shekel, tomorrow about this time in the market-place of Samaria.
18 Porque assim sucedeu como o homem de Deus falara ao rei, dizendo: Amanhã, quase a este tempo, haverá duas medidas de cevada por um siclo, e uma medida de farinha, por um siclo, à porta de Samaria.

19 And that captain said to the man of God, Even if the Lord made windows in heaven, would such a thing be possible? And he said to him, Your eyes will see it, but you will not have a taste of the food.
19 E aquele capitão respondera ao homem de Deus e disse: Eis que, ainda que o SENHOR fizesse janelas no céu, poder-se-ia isso fazer conforme essa palavra? E o homem de Deus dissera: Eis que o verás com os teus olhos, porém daí não comerás.

20 And such was his fate; for he was crushed to death under the feet of the people, in the doorway into the town.
20 E assim lhe sucedeu, porque o povo o atropelou à porta, e ele morreu.

2 Kings 8

1 Now Elisha had said to the woman whose son he had given back to life, Go now, with all the people of your house, and get a living-place for yourselves wherever you are able; for by the word of the Lord, there will be great need of food in the land; and this will go on for seven years.
1 E falou Eliseu àquela mulher cujo filho vivificara, dizendo: Levanta-te, e vai-te, tu e a tua família, e peregrina onde puderes peregrinar; porque o SENHOR chamou a fome, a qual também virá à terra por sete anos.

2 So the woman got up and did as the man of God said; and she and the people of her house were living in the land of the Philistines for seven years.
2 E levantou-se a mulher e fez conforme a palavra do homem de Deus; porque foi ela com a sua família e peregrinou na terra dos filisteus sete anos.

3 And when the seven years were ended, the woman came back from the land of the Philistines and went to the king with a request for her house and her land.
3 E sucedeu que, ao cabo dos sete anos, a mulher voltou da terra dos filisteus e saiu a clamar ao rei pela sua casa e pelas suas terras.

4 Now the king was talking with Gehazi, the servant of the man of God, saying, Now, give me an account of all the great things Elisha has done.
4 Ora, o rei falava a Geazi, moço do homem de Deus, dizendo: Conta-me, peço-te, todas as grandes obras que Eliseu tem feito.

5 And while he was giving the king the story of how Elisha had given life to the dead, the woman whose son had come back to life came to the king with a request for her house and her land. And Gehazi said, My lord king, this is the woman and this is her son, whose life Elisha gave back to him.
5 E sucedeu que, contando ele ao rei como vivificara a um morto, eis que a mulher cujo filho vivificara clamou ao rei pela sua casa e pelas suas terras; então, disse Geazi: Ó rei, meu senhor, esta é a mulher, e este o seu filho, a quem Eliseu vivificou.

6 And in answer to the king’s questions, the woman gave him all the story. So the king gave orders to one of his unsexed servants, saying, Give her back all her property, and all the produce of her fields from the day when she went away from the land up till now.
6 E o rei perguntou à mulher, e ela lho contou; então, o rei lhe deu um eunuco, dizendo: Faze-lhe restituir tudo quanto era seu e todas as rendas das terras, desde o dia em que deixou a terra até agora.

7 And Elisha came to Damascus; and Ben-hadad, king of Aram, was ill; and they said to him, The man of God has come.
7 Depois, veio Eliseu a Damasco, estando Ben-Hadade, rei da Síria, doente; e lho anunciaram, dizendo: O homem de Deus é chegado aqui.

8 Then the king said to Hazael, Take an offering with you, and go to see the man of God and get directions from the Lord by him, saying, Am I going to get better from my disease?
8 Então, o rei disse a Hazael: Toma um presente na tua mão, e vai a encontrar-te com o homem de Deus, e pergunta por ele ao SENHOR, dizendo: Hei de eu sarar desta doença?

9 So Hazael went to see him, taking with him forty camels with offerings on their backs of every sort of good thing from Damascus; and when he came before him, he said, Your son Ben-hadad, king of Aram, has sent me to you, saying, Will I get better from this disease?
9 Foi, pois, Hazael encontrar-se com ele e tomou um presente na sua mão, a saber, de tudo que era bom de Damasco, quarenta camelos carregados; e veio, e se pôs diante dele, e disse: Teu filho Ben-Hadade, rei da Síria, me enviou a ti, a dizer: Sararei eu desta doença?

10 And Elisha said to him, Go, say to him, You will certainly get better; but the Lord has made it clear to me that only death is before him.
10 E Eliseu lhe disse: Vai e dize-lhe: Certamente, não sararás. Porque o SENHOR me tem mostrado que certamente morrerá.

11 And he kept his eyes fixed on him till he was shamed, and the man of God was overcome with weeping.
11 E afirmou a sua vista e fitou os olhos nele, até se envergonhar; e chorou o homem de Deus.

12 And Hazael said, Why is my lord weeping? Then he said in answer, Because I see the evil which you will do to the children of Israel: burning down their strong towns, putting their young men to death with the sword, smashing their little ones against the stones, and cutting open the women who are with child.
12 Então, disse Hazael: Por que chora meu senhor? E ele disse: Porque sei o mal que hás de fazer aos filhos de Israel; porás fogo às suas fortalezas, e os seus jovens matarás à espada, e os seus meninos despedaçarás, e as suas pejadas fenderás.

13 And Hazael said, How is it possible that your servant, who is only a dog, will do this great thing? And Elisha said, The Lord has made it clear to me that you will be king over Aram.
13 E disse Hazael: Pois que é teu servo, que não é mais do que um cão, para fazer tão grande coisa? E disse Eliseu: O SENHOR me tem mostrado que tu hás de ser rei da Síria.

14 Then he went away from Elisha and came in to his master, who said to him, What did Elisha say to you? And his answer was, He said that you would certainly get well.
14 Então, partiu de Eliseu e veio a seu senhor, o qual lhe disse: Que te disse Eliseu? E disse ele: Disse-me que certamente sararás.

15 Now on the day after, Hazael took the bed-cover, and making it wet with water, put it over Ben-hadad’s face, causing his death: and Hazael became king in his place.
15 E sucedeu, ao outro dia, que tomou um cobertor, e o molhou na água, e o estendeu sobre o seu rosto, e morreu. E Hazael reinou em seu lugar.

16 In the fifth year of Joram, the son of Ahab, king of Israel, Jehoram, the son of Jehoshaphat, king of Judah, became king.
16 E, no ano quinto de Jorão, filho de Acabe, rei de Israel, reinando ainda Josafá em Judá, começou a reinar Jeorão, filho de Josafá, rei de Judá.

17 He was thirty-two years old when he became king; and he was ruling in Jerusalem for eight years.
17 Era ele da idade de trinta e dois anos quando começou a reinar e oito anos reinou em Jerusalém.

18 He went in the ways of the kings of Israel, as the family of Ahab did: for the daughter of Ahab was his wife; and he did evil in the eyes of the Lord.
18 E andou no caminho dos reis de Israel, como também fizeram os da casa de Acabe, porque tinha por mulher a filha de Acabe, e fez o que era mal aos olhos do SENHOR.

19 But it was not the Lord’s purpose to send destruction on Judah, because of David his servant, to whom he had given his word that he would have a light for ever.
19 Porém o SENHOR não quis destruir a Judá por amor de Davi, seu servo, como lhe tinha dito que lhe daria para sempre uma lâmpada a seus filhos.

20 In his time, Edom made themselves free from the rule of Judah, and took a king for themselves.
20 Nos seus dias, se revoltaram os edomitas contra o mando de Judá e puseram sobre si um rei.

21 Then Joram went over to Zair, with all his war-carriages; …made an attack by night on the Edomites, whose forces were all round him, …the captains of the war-carriages; and the people went in flight to their tents.
21 Pelo que Jeorão passou a Zair, e todos os carros com ele; e ele se levantou de noite e feriu os edomitas que estavam ao redor dele e os capitães dos carros; e o povo foi para as suas tendas.

22 So Edom made themselves free from the rule of Judah to this day. And at the same time, Libnah made itself free.
22 Todavia, os edomitas ficaram revoltados contra o mando de Judá até ao dia de hoje; então, também se revoltou Libna no mesmo tempo.

23 Now the rest of the acts of Joram, and all he did, are they not recorded in the book of the history of the kings of Judah?
23 O mais dos atos de Jeorão e tudo quanto fez, porventura, não estão escritos no livro das Crônicas dos Reis de Judá?

24 And Joram went to rest with his fathers and was put into the earth with his fathers in the town of David: and Ahaziah his son became king in his place.
24 E Jeorão dormiu com seus pais e foi sepultado com seus pais na Cidade de Davi; e Acazias, seu filho, reinou em seu lugar.

25 In the twelfth year that Joram, the son of Ahab, was king of Israel, Ahaziah, the son of Jehoram, king of Judah, became king;
25 No ano doze de Jorão filho de Acabe, rei de Israel, começou a reinar Acazias, filho de Jeorão, rei de Judá.

26 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, king of Israel.
26 Era Acazias de vinte e dois anos de idade quando começou a reinar e reinou um ano em Jerusalém; e era o nome de sua mãe Atalia, filha de Onri, rei de Israel.

27 He went in the ways of the family of Ahab, and did evil in the eyes of the Lord as the family of Ahab did, for he was a son-in-law of the family of Ahab.
27 E andou no caminho da casa de Acabe e fez mal aos olhos do SENHOR, como a casa de Acabe, porque era genro da casa de Acabe.

28 He went with Joram, the son of Ahab, to make war on Hazael, king of Aram, at Ramoth-gilead: and Joram was wounded by the Aramaeans.
28 E foi com Jorão, filho de Acabe, a Ramote-Gileade, à peleja contra Hazael, rei da Síria; e os siros feriram Jorão.

29 So King Joram went back to Jezreel to get well from the wounds which the bowmen 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 see Joram, the son of Ahab, in Jezreel, because he was ill.
29 Então, voltou o rei Jorão para se curar em Jezreel das feridas que os siros lhe fizeram em Ramá, quando pelejou contra Hazael, rei da Síria; e desceu Acazias, filho de Jeorão, rei de Judá, para ver a Jorão, filho de Acabe, em Jezreel, porquanto estava doente.

2 Kings 9

1 And Elisha the prophet sent for one of the sons of the prophets, and said to him, Make yourself ready for a journey, and take this bottle of oil in your hand, and go to Ramoth-gilead.
1 Então, o profeta Eliseu chamou um dos filhos dos profetas e lhe disse: Cinge os teus lombos, e toma esta almotolia de azeite na tua mão, e vai-te a Ramote-Gileade.

2 And when you get there, go in search of Jehu, the son of Jehoshaphat, the son of Nimshi; and go in and make him get up from among his brothers, and take him to an inner room.
2 E, chegando lá, vê onde está Jeú, filho de Josafá, filho de Ninsi; e entra, e faze que ele se levante do meio de seus irmãos, e leva-o à câmara interior.

3 Then take the bottle and put the oil on his head, and say, The Lord says, I have put the holy oil on you to make you king over Israel. Then, opening the door, go in flight, without waiting.
3 E toma a almotolia de azeite, e derrama-o sobre a sua cabeça, e dize: Assim diz o SENHOR: Ungi-te rei sobre Israel. Então, abre a porta, e foge, e não te detenhas.

4 So the young prophet went to Ramoth-gilead.
4 Foi, pois, o rapaz, o jovem profeta, a Ramote-Gileade.

5 And when he came, he saw the captains of the army seated together; and he said, I have something to say to you, O captain. And Jehu said, To which of us? And he said, To you, O captain.
5 E, entrando ele, eis que os capitães do exército estavam assentados ali; e disse: Capitão, tenho uma palavra que te dizer. E disse Jeú. A qual de todos nós? E disse: A ti, capitão!

6 And he got up and went into the house; then he put the holy oil on his head and said to him, The Lord, the God of Israel, says, I have made you king over the people of the Lord, over Israel.
6 Então, se levantou, e entrou na casa, e derramou o azeite sobre a sua cabeça, e lhe disse: Assim diz o SENHOR, Deus de Israel: Ungi-te rei sobre o povo do SENHOR, sobre Israel.

7 You are to see that the family of Ahab your master is cut off, so that I may take from Jezebel payment for the blood of my servants the prophets, and for the blood of all the servants of the Lord.
7 E ferirás a casa de Acabe, teu senhor, para que eu vingue o sangue de meus servos, os profetas, e o sangue de todos os servos do SENHOR da mão de Jezabel.

8 For the family of Ahab will come to an end; every male of Ahab’s family will be cut off, he who is shut up and he who goes free in Israel.
8 E toda a casa de Acabe perecerá; e destruirei de Acabe todo varão, tanto o encerrado como o livre em Israel.

9 I will make the family of Ahab like that of Jeroboam, the son of Nebat, and Baasha, the son of Ahijah.
9 Porque à casa de Acabe hei de fazer como à casa de Jeroboão, filho de Nebate, e como à casa de Baasa, filho de Aías.

10 And Jezebel will become food for the dogs in the heritage of Jezreel, and there will be no one to put her body into the earth. Then, opening the door, he went in flight.
10 E os cães comerão a Jezabel no pedaço de campo de Jezreel; não haverá quem a enterre. Então, abriu a porta e fugiu.

11 Then Jehu came out again to the servants of his lord, and one said to him, Is all well? why did this man, who is off his head, come to you? And he said to them, You have knowledge of the man and of his talk.
11 E, saindo Jeú aos servos de seu senhor, disseram-lhe: Vai tudo bem? Por que veio a ti este louco? E ele lhes disse: Bem conheceis o homem e o seu falar.

12 And they said, That is not true; now give us his story. Then he said, This is what he said to me: The Lord says, I have made you king over Israel.
12 Mas eles disseram: É mentira; agora, faze-no-lo saber. E disse: Assim e assim me falou, dizendo: Assim diz o SENHOR: Ungi-te rei sobre Israel.

13 Then straight away everyone took his robe and put it under him on the top of the steps, and, sounding the horn, they said, Jehu is king.
13 Então, se apressaram, e tomou cada um a sua veste e a pôs debaixo dele, no mais alto degrau; e tocaram a buzina e disseram: Jeú reina.

14 So Jehu, the son of Jehoshaphat, the son of Nimshi, made designs against Joram. (Now Joram and all the army of Israel were keeping watch on Ramoth-gilead because of Hazael, king of Aram:
14 Assim, Jeú, filho de Josafá, filho de Ninsi, conspirou contra Jorão. Tinha, porém, Jorão cercado a Ramote-Gileade, ele e todo o Israel, por causa de Hazael, rei da Síria.

15 But King Joram had gone back to Jezreel to get well from the wounds which the Aramaeans had given him when he was fighting against Hazael, king of Aram.) And Jehu said, If this is your purpose, then let no one get away and go out of the town to give news of it in Jezreel.
15 Porém o rei Jorão voltou para se curar em Jezreel das feridas que os siros lhe fizeram, quando pelejou contra Hazael, rei da Síria. E disse Jeú: Se é da vossa vontade, ninguém saia da cidade, nem escape, para ir anunciar isso em Jezreel.

16 So Jehu got into his carriage and went to Jezreel, for Joram was ill in bed there; and Ahaziah, king of Judah, had come down to see Joram.
16 Então, Jeú subiu a um carro e foi-se a Jezreel, porque Jorão estava deitado ali; e também Acazias, rei de Judá, descera para ver a Jorão.

17 And the watchman on the tower in Jezreel saw Jehu and his band coming, and said, I see a band of people. And Joram said, Send out a horseman to them, and let him say, Is it peace?
17 E o atalaia estava na torre de Jezreel, e viu a tropa de Jeú, que vinha, e disse: Vejo uma tropa. Então, disse Jorão: Toma um cavaleiro e envia-lho ao encontro; e diga: Há paz?

18 So a horseman went out to them and said, The king says, Is it peace? And Jehu said, What have you to do with peace? come after me. And the watchman gave them word, saying, The horseman went up to them, but has not come back.
18 E o cavaleiro lhe foi ao encontro e disse: Assim diz o rei: Há paz? E disse Jeú: Que tens tu que fazer com a paz? Passa para trás de mim. E o atalaia o fez saber, dizendo: Chegou a eles o mensageiro, porém não volta.

19 Then he sent out a second horseman, who came up to them and said, The king says, Is it peace? And Jehu said in answer, What have you to do with peace? come after me.
19 Então, enviou outro cavaleiro; e, chegando este a eles, disse: Assim diz o rei: Há paz? E disse Jeú: Que tens tu que fazer com a paz? Passa para trás de mim.

20 And the watchman gave them word, saying, He went up to them and has not come back again; and the driving is like the driving of Jehu, son of Nimshi, for he is driving violently.
20 E o atalaia o fez saber, dizendo: Também este chegou a eles, porém não volta; e o andar parece como o andar de Jeú, filho de Ninsi, porque anda furiosamente.

21 Then Joram said, Make ready. So they made his carriage ready; and Joram, king of Israel, with Ahaziah, king of Judah, went out in their carriages for the purpose of meeting Jehu; and they came face to face with him at the field of Naboth the Jezreelite.
21 Então, disse Jorão: Aparelha o carro. E aparelharam o seu carro. E saiu Jorão, rei de Israel, e Acazias, rei de Judá, cada um em seu carro, e saíram ao encontro de Jeú, e o acharam no pedaço de campo de Nabote, o jezreelita.

22 Now when Joram saw Jehu he said, Is it peace, Jehu? And he said in answer, What peace is possible while all the land is full of the disgusting sins of your mother Jezebel, and her secret arts?
22 E sucedeu que, vendo Jorão a Jeú, disse: Há paz, Jeú? E disse ele: Que paz, enquanto as prostituições da tua mãe Jezabel e as suas feitiçarias são tantas?

23 Then Joram, turning his horses in flight, said to Ahaziah, Broken faith, O Ahaziah!
23 Então, Jorão voltou as mãos, e fugiu, e disse a Acazias: Traição há, Acazias.

24 Then Jehu took his bow in his hand, and with all his strength sent an arrow, wounding Joram between the arms; and the arrow came out at his heart, and he went down on his face in his carriage.
24 Mas Jeú entesou o seu arco com toda a força e feriu a Jorão entre os braços, e a flecha lhe saiu pelo coração; e caiu no seu carro.

25 Then Jehu said to Bidkar, his captain, Take him up, and put him in the field of Naboth the Jezreelite: for is not that day in your memory when you and I together on our horses were going after Ahab, his father, and the Lord put this fate on him, saying:
25 Então, Jeú disse a Bidcar, seu capitão: Toma-o, lança-o no pedaço do campo de Nabote, o jezreelita; pois, lembra-te de que, indo eu e tu juntos a cavalo após Acabe, seu pai, o SENHOR pôs sobre ele esta carga, dizendo:

26 I saw the blood of Naboth and of his sons yesterday; and I will give you full payment in this field, says the Lord? So now, take him and put him in this field, as the Lord said.
26 Por certo que, se eu não visse ontem à tarde o sangue de Nabote e o sangue de seus filhos, diz o SENHOR, também não to pagaria neste pedaço de campo, diz o SENHOR. Agora, pois, toma-o e lança-o neste pedaço de campo, conforme a palavra do SENHOR.

27 Now when Ahaziah, king of Judah, saw this, he went in flight by the way of the garden house. And Jehu came after him and said, Put him to death in the same way; and they gave him a death-wound in his carriage, on the slope up to Gur, by Ibleam; and he went in flight to Megiddo, where death came to him.
27 O que vendo Acazias, rei de Judá, fugiu pelo caminho da casa do jardim, porém Jeú seguiu após ele e disse: Feri também a este no carro à subida de Gur, que está junto a Ibleão. E fugiu para Megido e morreu ali.

28 And his servants took him in a carriage to Jerusalem, and put him into the earth with his fathers in the town of David.
28 E seus servos o levaram num carro a Jerusalém e o sepultaram na sua sepultura, junto a seus pais, na Cidade de Davi.

29 (In the eleventh year of the rule of Joram, the son of Ahab, Ahaziah became king over Judah.)
29 E, no ano undécimo de Jorão, filho de Acabe, começou Acazias a reinar sobre Judá.

30 And when Jehu came to Jezreel, Jezebel had news of it; and, painting her eyes and dressing her hair with ornaments, she put her head out of the window.
30 E Jeú veio a Jezreel, o que ouvindo Jezabel, se pintou em volta dos olhos, e enfeitou a sua cabeça, e olhou pela janela.

31 And when Jehu was coming into the town, she said, Is all well, O Zimri, taker of your master’s life?
31 E, entrando Jeú pelas portas, disse ela: Teve paz Zinri, que matou a seu senhor?

32 Then, looking up to the window, he said, Who is on my side, who? and two or three unsexed servants put out their heads.
32 E levantou ele o rosto para a janela e disse: Quem é comigo? Quem? E dois ou três eunucos olharam para ele.

33 And he said, Take her and put her out of the window. So they sent her down with force, and her blood went in a shower on the wall and on the horses; and she was crushed under their feet.
33 Então, disse ele: Lançai-a de alto abaixo. E lançaram-na de alto abaixo; e foram salpicados com o seu sangue a parede e os cavalos, e Jeú a atropelou.

34 And he came in, and took food and drink; then he said, Now see to this cursed woman, and put her body into the earth, for she is a king’s daughter.
34 Entrando ele, pois, e havendo comido e bebido, disse: Olhai por aquela maldita e sepultai-a, porque é filha de rei.

35 And they went out to put her body into the earth, but nothing of her was to be seen, only the bones of her head, and her feet, and parts of her hands.
35 E foram para a sepultar; porém não acharam dela senão somente a caveira, e os pés, e as palmas das mãos.

36 So they came back and gave him word of it. And he said, This is what the Lord said by his servant Elijah the Tishbite, saying, In the heritage of Jezreel the flesh of Jezebel will become food for dogs;
36 Então, voltaram e lho fizeram saber; e ele disse: Esta é a palavra do SENHOR, a qual falou pelo ministério de Elias, o tisbita, seu servo, dizendo: No pedaço do campo de Jezreel, os cães comerão a carne de Jezabel.

37 And the dead body of Jezebel will be like waste dropped on the face of the earth in the heritage of Jezreel; so that they will not be able to say, This is Jezebel.
37 E o cadáver de Jezabel será como esterco sobre o campo, no pedaço de Jezreel, que se não possa dizer: Esta é Jezabel.

2 Kings 10

1 Now there were in Samaria seventy of Ahab’s sons. And Jehu sent letters to Samaria, to the rulers of the town, and to the responsible men, and to those who had the care of the sons of Ahab, saying,
1 E Acabe tinha setenta filhos em Samaria; e Jeú escreveu cartas e as enviou a Samaria, aos chefes de Jezreel, aos anciãos e aos aios dos filhos de Acabe, dizendo:

2 Straight away, when you get this letter, seeing that your master’s sons are with you, and that you have carriages and horses and a walled town and arms;
2 Logo, em chegando a vós esta carta, pois estão convosco os filhos de vosso senhor, como também os carros, e os cavalos, e a cidade fortalecida, e as armas,

3 Take the best and most upright of your master’s sons, and make him king in his father’s place, and put up a fight for your master’s family.
3 olhai pelo melhor e mais reto dos filhos de vosso senhor, o qual ponde sobre o trono de seu pai, e pelejai pela casa de vosso senhor.

4 But they were full of fear, and said, The two kings have gone down before him: how may we keep our place?
4 Porém eles temeram muitíssimo e disseram: Eis que dois reis não puderam parar diante dele; como, pois, poderemos nós resistir-lhe?

5 So the controller of the king’s house, with the ruler of the town, and the responsible men, and those who had the care of Ahab’s sons, sent to Jehu, saying, We are your servants and will do all your orders; we will not make any man king; do whatever seems best to you.
5 Então, o que tinha cargo da casa, e o que tinha cargo da cidade, e os anciãos, e os aios enviaram a Jeú, dizendo: Teus servos somos e tudo quanto nos disseres faremos; a ninguém poremos rei; faze o que for bom aos teus olhos.

6 Then he sent them a second letter, saying, If you are on my side, and if you will do my orders, come to me at Jezreel by this time tomorrow, with the heads of your master’s sons. Now the king’s seventy sons were with the great men of the town, who had the care of them.
6 Então, segunda vez, lhes escreveu outra carta, dizendo: Se sois meus e ouvirdes a minha voz, tomai as cabeças dos homens, filhos de vosso senhor, e amanhã a este tempo vinde a mim, a Jezreel (e os filhos do rei, setenta homens, estavam com os grandes da cidade, que os mantinham).

7 And when the letter came to them, they took the king’s sons and put them to death, all the seventy, and put their heads in baskets and sent them to him at Jezreel.
7 Sucedeu, pois, que, chegada a eles a carta, tomaram os filhos do rei, e os mataram, setenta homens, e puseram as suas cabeças nuns cestos, e lhas mandaram a Jezreel.

8 And a man came and said to him, They have come with the heads of the king’s sons. And he said, Put them down in two masses at the doorway of the town till the morning.
8 E um mensageiro veio e lhe anunciou dizendo: Trouxeram as cabeças dos filhos do rei. E ele disse: Ponde-as em dois montões à entrada da porta, até amanhã.

9 And in the morning he went out and, stopping, said to all the people there, You are upright men: it is true that I made designs against my master, and put him to death; but who is responsible for the death of all these?
9 E sucedeu que, pela manhã, saindo ele, parou e disse a todo o povo: Vós sois justos; eis que eu conspirei contra o meu senhor e o matei; mas quem feriu todos estes?

10 You may be certain that nothing which the Lord has said about the family of Ahab will be without effect; for the Lord has done what he said by his servant Elijah.
10 Sabei, pois, agora que, da palavra do SENHOR, que o SENHOR falou contra a casa de Acabe, nada cairá em terra, porque o SENHOR tem feito o que falou pelo ministério de seu servo Elias.

11 So Jehu put to death all the rest of the seed of Ahab in Jezreel, and all his relations and his near friends and his priests, till there were no more of them.
11 Também Jeú feriu todos os restantes da casa de Acabe, em Jezreel, como também todos os seus grandes, e os seus conhecidos, e os seus sacerdotes, até que nenhum lhe deixou ficar de resto.

12 Then he got up and came to Samaria. And he was at the meeting-place of the keepers of sheep, by the way,
12 Então, se levantou, e partiu, e foi a Samaria. E, estando no caminho, em Bete-Equede dos pastores,

13 When he came across the brothers of Ahaziah, king of Judah, and said, Who are you? And they said, We are the brothers of Ahaziah, king of Judah; we are going down to see the children of the king and of the queen.
13 Jeú achou os irmãos de Acazias, rei de Judá, e disse: Quem sois vós? E eles disseram: Os irmãos de Acazias somos; e descemos a saudar os filhos do rei e os filhos da rainha.

14 And he said, Take them living. So they took them living, and put them to death in the water-hole of Beth-eked; of the forty-two men he put every one to death;
14 Então, disse ele: Apanhai-os vivos. E eles os apanharam vivos e os mataram junto ao poço de Bete-Equede, quarenta e dois homens; e a nenhum deles deixou de resto.

15 And when he had gone away from there, he came across Jehonadab, the son of Rechab: and he said good-day to him, and said to him, Is your heart true to mine, as mine is to yours? And Jehonadab in answer said, It is; and Jehu said, If it is, give me your hand. And he gave him his hand, and he made him come up into his carriage.
15 E, partindo dali, encontrou a Jonadabe, filho de Recabe, que lhe vinha ao encontro, o qual saudou e lhe disse: Reto é o teu coração, como o meu coração é com o teu coração? E disse Jonadabe: É. Então, se é, dá-me a mão. E deu-lhe a mão e fê-lo subir consigo ao carro.

16 And he said, Come with me and see how I am on fire for the Lord’s cause. So he made him go with him in his carriage.
16 E disse: Vai comigo e verás o meu zelo para com o SENHOR. E o puseram no seu carro.

17 And when he came to Samaria, he put to death all those of Ahab’s family who were still in Samaria, till there were no more of them, as the Lord had said to Elijah.
17 E, chegando a Samaria, feriu todos os que ficaram de Acabe em Samaria, até que os destruiu, conforme a palavra que o SENHOR dissera a Elias.

18 Then Jehu got all the people together and said to them, Ahab was Baal’s servant in a small way, but Jehu will be his servant on a great scale.
18 E ajuntou Jeú a todo o povo e disse-lhe: Acabe serviu pouco a Baal; Jeú, porém, muito o servirá.

19 Now send for all the prophets of Baal and all his servants and all his priests, to come to me; let no one keep away: for I have a great offering to make to Baal; anyone who is not present, will be put to death. This Jehu did with deceit, his purpose being the destruction of the servants of Baal.
19 Pelo que chamai-me, agora, todos os profetas de Baal, todos os seus servos e todos os seus sacerdotes; não falte nenhum, porque tenho um grande sacrifício a fazer a Baal; todo aquele que faltar não viverá. Porém Jeú fazia isso com astúcia, para destruir os servos de Baal.

20 And Jehu said, Let there be a special holy meeting for the worship of Baal. So a public statement was made.
20 Disse mais Jeú: Consagrai a Baal uma assembléia solene. E a apregoaram.

21 And Jehu sent out through all Israel; and all the servants of Baal came, not one kept away. And they came into the house of Baal, so that it was full from end to end.
21 Também Jeú enviou por todo o Israel; e vieram todos os servos de Baal, e nenhum homem deles ficou que não viesse; e entraram na casa de Baal, e encheu-se a casa de Baal, de um lado ao outro.

22 And Jehu said to him who kept the robes, Get out robes for all the servants of Baal. So he got out robes for them.
22 Então, disse ao que tinha o cargo das vestimentas. Tira as vestimentas para todos os servos de Baal. E ele lhes tirou para fora as vestimentas.

23 And Jehu, with Jehonadab, the son of Rechab, went into the house of Baal; and he said to the servants of Baal, Make a search with care, to see that no servant of the Lord is with you, but only servants of Baal.
23 E entrou Jeú com Jonadabe, filho de Recabe, na casa de Baal, e disse aos servos de Baal: Examinai e vede bem que, porventura, nenhum dos servos do SENHOR aqui haja convosco, senão somente os servos de Baal.

24 Then they went in to make offerings and burned offerings. Now Jehu had put eighty men outside, and said to them, If any man whom I give into your hands gets away, the life of him who lets him go will be the price of his life.
24 E, entrando eles a fazerem sacrifícios e holocaustos, Jeú preparou da parte de fora oitenta homens e disse-lhes: Se escapar algum dos homens que eu entregar em vossas mãos, a vossa vida será pela vida dele.

25 Then when the burned offering was ended, straight away Jehu said to the armed men and the captains, Go in and put them to death; let not one come out. So they put them to the sword; and, pulling the images to the earth, they went into the holy place of the house of Baal.
25 E sucedeu que, acabando de fazer o holocausto, disse Jeú aos da sua guarda e aos capitães: Entrai, feri-os, não escape nenhum. E os feriram a fio de espada; e os da guarda e os capitães os lançaram fora, e se foram à cidade da casa de Baal.

26 And they took out the image of Asherah from the house of Baal, and had it burned.
26 E tiraram as estátuas da casa de Baal, e as queimaram.

27 The altar of Baal was pulled down and the house of Baal was broken up and made an unclean place, as it is to this day.
27 Também quebraram a estátua de Baal, e derrubaram a casa de Baal, e fizeram dela latrinas, até ao dia de hoje.

28 So Jehu put an end to the worship of Baal in Israel.
28 E, assim, Jeú destruiu a Baal de Israel.

29 But Jehu did not keep himself from all the sins of Jeroboam, the son of Nebat, and the evil he made Israel do; the gold oxen were still in Beth-el and in Dan.
29 Porém não se apartou Jeú de seguir os pecados de Jeroboão, filho de Nebate, que fez pecar a Israel, a saber, dos bezerros de ouro, que estavam em Betel e em Dã.

30 And the Lord said to Jehu, Because you have done well in doing what is right in my eyes and effecting all my purpose for the family of Ahab, your sons will be kings of Israel to the fourth generation.
30 Pelo que disse o SENHOR a Jeú: Porquanto bem fizeste em realizar o que é reto aos meus olhos e, conforme tudo quanto eu tinha no meu coração, fizeste à casa de Acabe, teus filhos até à quarta geração se assentarão no trono de Israel.

31 But Jehu did not take care to keep the law of the Lord with all his heart: he did not keep himself from the sin which Jeroboam did and made Israel do.
31 Mas Jeú não teve cuidado de andar com todo o seu coração na lei do SENHOR, Deus de Israel, nem se apartou dos pecados de Jeroboão, que fez pecar a Israel.

32 In those days the Lord was angry first with Israel; and Hazael made attacks on all the land of Israel,
32 Naqueles dias, começou o SENHOR a diminuir os termos de Israel porque Hazael os feriu em todas as fronteiras de Israel,

33 East of Jordan, in all the land of Gilead, the Gadites and the Reubenites and the Manassites, from Aroer by the valley of the Arnon, all Gilead and Bashan.
33 desde o Jordão para o nascente do sol, e toda a terra de Gileade, e os gaditas, e os rubenitas, e os manassitas, desde Aroer, que está junto ao ribeiro de Arnom, a saber, Gileade e Basã.

34 Now the rest of the acts of Jehu, and all he did, and his great power, are they not recorded in the book of the history of the kings of Israel?
34 Ora, o mais dos atos de Jeú e tudo quanto fez, e todo o seu poder, porventura, não estão escritos no livro das Crônicas dos Reis de Israel?

35 And Jehu went to rest with his fathers, and was put into the earth in Samaria. And Jehoahaz his son became king in his place.
35 E Jeú dormiu com seus pais, e o sepultaram em Samaria; e Jeoacaz, seu filho, reinou em seu lugar.

36 And the time of Jehu’s rule over Israel in Samaria was twenty-eight years.
36 E os dias que Jeú reinou sobre Israel em Samaria foram vinte e oito anos.

2 Kings 11

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

2 But Jehosheba, the daughter of King Joram, sister of Ahaziah, secretly took Joash, the son of Ahaziah, with the woman who took care of him, away from among the king’s sons who were put to death, and put him in the bedroom; and they kept him safe from Athaliah, so that he was not put to death.
2 Mas Jeoseba, filha do rei Jeorão, irmã de Acazias, tomou a Joás, filho de Acazias, e o furtou dentre os filhos do rei, aos quais matavam, e o pôs, a ele e à sua ama, na recâmara, e o escondeu de Atalia, e assim não o mataram.

3 And for six years she kept him safe in the house of the Lord, while Athaliah was ruling over the land.
3 E Jeoseba o teve escondido na Casa do SENHOR seis anos; e Atalia reinava sobre a terra.

4 Then in the seventh year, Jehoiada sent for the captains of hundreds of the Carians, and the armed men, and taking them into the house of the Lord, made an agreement with them, and made them take an oath in the house of the Lord, and let them see the king’s son.
4 E, no sétimo ano, mandou Joiada chamar os centuriões, com os capitães e com os da guarda, e os meteu consigo na Casa do SENHOR; e fez com eles um concerto, e os ajuramentou na Casa do SENHOR, e lhes mostrou o filho do rei.

5 And he gave them orders, saying, This is what you are to do: the third part of you, who come in on the Sabbath and keep the watch of the king’s house,
5 E deu-lhes ordem, dizendo: Esta é a obra que vós haveis de fazer: uma terça parte de vós, que entra no sábado, fará a guarda da casa do rei;

6 "one-third shall be at the gate of Sur, and one-third at the gate behind the escorts. You shall keep the watch of the house, lest it be broken down.
6 e outra terça parte estará à porta Sur; e a outra terça parte, à porta detrás dos da guarda; assim, fareis a guarda desta casa, afastando a todos.

7 And the two divisions of you, who go out on the Sabbath and keep the watch of the house of the Lord,
7 E as duas partes de vós, a saber, todos os que saem no sábado, farão a guarda da Casa do SENHOR, junto ao rei.

8 Will make a circle round the king, every man being armed; and whoever comes inside your lines is to be put to death; keep with the king, when he goes out and when he comes in.
8 E rodeareis o rei, cada um com as suas armas nas mãos, e aquele que entrar entre as fileiras deverá ser morto; e vós estareis com o rei quando sair e quando entrar.

9 And the captains of hundreds did as Jehoiada the priest gave them orders; every one took with him his men, those who came in and those who went out on the Sabbath, and they came in to Jehoiada the priest.
9 Fizeram, pois, os centuriões conforme tudo quanto ordenara o sacerdote Joiada, tomando cada um os seus homens, tanto aos que entravam no sábado como aos que saíam no sábado; e vieram ao sacerdote Joiada.

10 And 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 the Lord.
10 E o sacerdote deu aos centuriões as lanças e os escudos que haviam sido do rei Davi, que estavam na Casa do SENHOR.

11 Then the armed men took up their positions, every man with his instruments of war in his hand, from the right side of the house to the left, round about the altar and the house.
11 E os da guarda se puseram, cada um com as armas na mão, desde o lado direito da casa até ao lado esquerdo da casa, da banda do altar e da banda da casa, junto ao rei em redor.

12 Then he made the king’s son come out, and put the crown on him and the arm-bands, and made him king, and put the holy oil on him; and they all, making sounds of joy with their hands, said, Long life to the king.
12 Então, ele tirou o filho do rei, e lhe pôs a coroa, e lhe deu o testemunho; e o fizeram rei, e o ungiram, e bateram as mãos, e disseram: Viva o rei!

13 Now Athaliah, hearing the noise made by the people, came to the people in the house of the Lord;
13 E Atalia, ouvindo a voz dos da guarda e do povo, entrou ao povo na Casa do SENHOR.

14 And looking, she saw the king in his regular place by the pillar, and the captains and the horns near him; and all the people of the land giving signs of joy and sounding the horns. Then Athaliah, violently parting her robes, gave a cry, saying, Broken faith, broken faith!
14 E olhou, e eis que o rei estava junto à coluna, conforme o costume, e os capitães e as trombetas, junto ao rei, e todo o povo da terra estava alegre e tocava as trombetas; então, Atalia rasgou as suas vestes e clamou: Traição! Traição!

15 Then Jehoiada the priest gave orders to those who were placed in 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 he said, Let her not be put to death in the house of the Lord.
15 Porém o sacerdote Joiada deu ordem aos centuriões que comandavam as tropas e disse-lhes: Tirai-a para fora das fileiras, e a quem a seguir, matai-o à espada. Porque o sacerdote disse: Não a matem na Casa do SENHOR.

16 So they put their hands on her, and she went to the king’s house by the doorway of the horses, and there she was put to death.
16 E lançaram mão dela; e ela foi pelo caminho da entrada dos cavalos, à casa do rei, e ali a mataram.

17 And Jehoiada made an agreement between the Lord and the king and the people, that they would be the Lord’s people; and in the same way between the king and the people.
17 E Joiada fez um concerto entre o SENHOR, e o rei, e o povo, que seria o povo do SENHOR; como também entre o rei e o povo.

18 Then all the people of the land went to the house of Baal and had it pulled down: its altars and images were all broken to bits, and Mattan, the priest of Baal, they put to death before the altars. And the priest put overseers over the Lord’s house.
18 Então, todo o povo da terra entrou na casa de Baal, e a derribaram, como também os seus altares e as suas imagens totalmente quebraram, e a Matã, sacerdote de Baal, mataram perante os altares; então, o sacerdote pôs oficiais sobre a Casa do SENHOR.

19 Then he took the captains of hundreds, and the Carians, and the armed men, and all the people of the land; and they came down with the king from the house of the Lord, through the doorway of the armed men, to the king’s house. And he took his place on the seat of the kings.
19 E tomou os centuriões, e os capitães, e os da guarda, e todo o povo da terra; e conduziram da Casa do SENHOR o rei e vieram, pelo caminho da porta dos da guarda, à casa do rei, e ele se assentou no trono dos reis.

20 So all the people of the land were glad, and the town was quiet; and they had put Athaliah to death with the sword at the king’s house.
20 E todo o povo da terra se alegrou, e a cidade repousou, depois que mataram Atalia à espada, junto à casa do rei.

21 And Jehoash was seven years old when he became king.
21 Era Joás da idade de sete anos quando o fizeram rei.

2 Kings 12

1 In the seventh year of Jehu’s rule, Jehoash became king; and he was ruling for forty years in Jerusalem; his mother’s name was Zibiah of Beer-sheba.
1 No ano sétimo de Jeú, começou a reinar Joás e quarenta anos reinou em Jerusalém; e era o nome de sua mãe Zíbia, de Berseba.

2 Jehoash did what was right in the eyes of the Lord all his days, because he was guided by the teaching of Jehoiada the priest.
2 E fez Joás o que era reto aos olhos do SENHOR todos os dias em que o sacerdote Joiada o dirigia.

3 But the high places were not taken away; the people went on making offerings and burning them in the high places.
3 Tão-somente os altos se não tiraram; porque ainda o povo sacrificava e queimava incenso nos altos.

4 And Jehoash said to the priests, All the money of the holy things, which comes into the house of the Lord, (the amount fixed for every man’s payment,) and all the money given by any man freely from the impulse of his heart,
4 E disse Joás aos sacerdotes: Todo o dinheiro das coisas santas que se trouxer à Casa do SENHOR, a saber, o dinheiro daquele que passa o arrolamento, o dinheiro de cada uma das pessoas, segundo a sua avaliação, e todo o dinheiro que trouxer cada um voluntariamente para a Casa do SENHOR,

5 Let the priests take, every man from his friends and neighbours, to make good what is damaged in the house, wherever it is to be seen.
5 os sacerdotes o recebam, cada um dos seus conhecidos; e eles reparem as fendas da casa, segundo toda fenda que se achar nela.

6 But in the twenty-third year of King Jehoash, the priests had not made good the damaged parts of the house.
6 Sucedeu, porém, que, no ano vinte e três do rei Joás, os sacerdotes ainda não tinham reparado as fendas da casa.

7 Then King Jehoash sent for Jehoiada the priest, and the other priests, and said to them, Why have you not made good what is damaged in the house? now take no more money from your neighbours, but give it for the building up of the house.
7 Então, o rei Joás chamou o sacerdote Joiada e os mais sacerdotes e lhes disse: Por que não reparais as fendas da casa? Agora, pois, não tomeis mais dinheiro de vossos conhecidos, mas dai-o em prol das fendas da casa.

8 So the priests made an agreement to take no more money from the people, and not to make good what was damaged in the house.
8 E consentiram os sacerdotes em não tomarem mais dinheiro do povo, nem em repararem as fendas da casa.

9 But Jehoiada the priest took a chest, and making a hole in the cover of it, put it by the altar, on the right side when one comes into the house of the Lord; and the priests who kept the door put in it regularly all the money which was taken into the house of the Lord.
9 Porém o sacerdote Joiada tomou uma arca, e fez um buraco na tampa, e a pôs ao pé do altar, à mão direita dos que entravam na Casa do SENHOR; e os sacerdotes que guardavam a entrada da porta depositavam ali todo o dinheiro que se trazia à Casa do SENHOR.

10 And when they saw that there was much money in the chest, the king’s scribe and the high priest came and put it in bags, noting the amount of all the money there was in the house of the Lord.
10 Sucedeu, pois, que, quando viram que já havia muito dinheiro na arca, o escrivão do rei subia com o sumo sacerdote, e contavam e ensacavam o dinheiro que se achava na Casa do SENHOR.

11 And the money which was measured out they gave regularly to those who were responsible for overseeing the work, and these gave it in payment to the woodworkers and the builders who were working on the house of the Lord,
11 E o dinheiro, depois de pesado, davam nas mãos dos que faziam a obra, que tinham a seu cargo a Casa do SENHOR; e eles os distribuíam aos carpinteiros e aos edificadores que reparavam a Casa do SENHOR,

12 And to the wall-builders and the stone-cutters, and to get wood and cut stone for building up the broken parts of the house of the Lord, and for everything needed to put the house in good order.
12 como também aos pedreiros e aos cabouqueiros, e compravam madeira e pedras de cantaria para repararem as fendas da Casa do SENHOR e para tudo quanto para a casa se dava para a repararem.

13 But the money was not used for making silver cups or scissors or basins or wind-instruments or any vessels of gold or silver for the house of the Lord;
13 Todavia, do dinheiro que se trazia à Casa do SENHOR não se faziam nem taças de prata, nem garfos, nem bacias, nem trombetas, nem nenhum vaso de ouro ou vaso de prata para a Casa do SENHOR.

14 But it was all given to the workmen who were building up the house.
14 Porque o davam aos que faziam a obra, e reparavam com ele a Casa do SENHOR.

15 And they did not get any statement of accounts from the men to whom the money was given for the workmen, for they made use of it with good faith.
15 Também não pediam contas aos homens em cujas mãos entregavam aquele dinheiro, para o dar aos que faziam a obra, porque procediam com fidelidade.

16 The money of the offerings for error and the sin-offerings was not taken into the house of the Lord; it was the priests’.
16 Mas o dinheiro do sacrifício por delitos e o dinheiro por sacrifício de pecados se não traziam à Casa do SENHOR; porém eram para os sacerdotes.

17 Then Hazael, king of Aram, went up against Gath and took it; and his purpose was to go up to Jerusalem.
17 Então, subiu Hazael, rei da Síria, e pelejou contra Gate, e a tomou; depois, Hazael resolveu marchar contra Jerusalém.

18 Then Jehoash, king of Judah, took all the holy things which Jehoshaphat and Jehoram and Ahaziah his fathers, the kings of Judah, had given to the Lord, together with the things he himself had given, and all the gold in the Temple store and in the king’s house, and sent it to Hazael, king of Aram; and he went away from Jerusalem.
18 Porém, Joás, rei de Judá, tomou todas as coisas santas que Josafá, e Jeorão, e Acazias, seus pais, reis de Judá, consagraram, como também todo o ouro que se achou nos tesouros da Casa do SENHOR e na casa do rei; e os mandou a Hazael, rei da Síria; e este, então, se retirou de Jerusalém.

19 Now the rest of the acts of Joash, and all he did, are they not recorded in the book of the history of the kings of Israel?
19 Ora, o mais dos atos de Joás e tudo quanto fez mais, porventura, não estão escritos no livro das Crônicas dos Reis de Judá?

20 And his servants made a secret design and put Joash to death at the house of Millo on the way down to Silla.
20 E levantaram-se os seus servos, e conspiraram contra ele, e feriram Joás na casa de Milo, que desce para Sila.

21 And Jozacar, the son of Shimeath, and Jehozabad, the son of Shomer, his servants, came to him and put him to death; and they put him into the earth with his fathers in the town of David; and Amaziah his son became king in his place.
21 Porque Jozacar, filho de Simeate, e Jozabade, filho de Somer, seus servos, o feriram, e morreu; e o sepultaram com seus pais na Cidade de Davi; e Amazias, seu filho, reinou em seu lugar.

2 Kings 13

1 In the twenty-third year of Joash, the son of Ahaziah, king of Judah, Jehoahaz, the son of Jehu, became king over Israel in Samaria, ruling for seventeen years.
1 No ano vinte e três de Joás, filho de Acazias, rei de Judá, começou a reinar Jeoacaz, filho de Jeú, sobre Israel, em Samaria, e reinou dezessete anos.

2 He did evil in the eyes of the Lord, copying the sins of Jeroboam, the son of Nebat, which he did and made Israel do; he did not keep himself from them.
2 E fez o que era mal aos olhos do SENHOR; porque seguiu os pecados de Jeroboão, filho de Nebate, que fez pecar a Israel; não se apartou deles.

3 So the wrath of the Lord was burning against Israel, and he gave them up into the power of Hazael, king of Aram, and into the power of Ben-hadad, the son of Hazael, again and again.
3 Pelo que a ira do SENHOR se acendeu contra Israel, o qual deu-os na mão de Hazael, rei da Síria, e na mão de Ben-Hadade, filho de Hazael, todos aqueles dias.

4 Then Jehoahaz made prayer to the Lord, and the Lord gave ear to him, for he saw how cruelly Israel was crushed by the king of Aram.
4 Porém Jeoacaz suplicou diante da face do SENHOR, e o SENHOR o ouviu; pois viu a opressão de Israel, porque os oprimia o rei da Síria.

5 (And the Lord gave Israel a saviour, so that they became free from the hands of the Aramaeans; and the children of Israel were living in their tents as in the past.
5 E o SENHOR deu um salvador a Israel, e os filhos de Israel saíram de debaixo das mãos dos siros e habitaram nas suas tendas, como dantes.

6 But still they did not give up the sin of Jeroboam, which he made Israel do, but went on with it; and there was an image of Asherah in Samaria.)
6 (Contudo, não se apartaram dos pecados da casa de Jeroboão, que fez pecar a Israel; porém andaram neles; e também o bosque ficou em pé em Samaria.)

7 For out of all his army, Jehoahaz had only fifty horsemen and ten carriages and ten thousand footmen; the king of Aram had given them up to destruction, crushing them like dust.
7 Não deixou a Jeoacaz mais povo, senão só cinqüenta cavaleiros, e dez carros, e dez mil homens de pé; porquanto o rei da Síria os tinha destruído e os tinha feito como o pó, trilhando-os.

8 Now the rest of the acts of Jehoahaz, and all he did, and his great power, are they not recorded in the book of the history of the kings of Israel?
8 Ora, o mais dos atos de Jeoacaz, e tudo quanto fez mais, e o seu poder, porventura, não estão escritos no livro das Crônicas dos Reis de Israel?

9 And Jehoahaz went to rest with his fathers, and was put into the earth in Samaria; and Joash his son became king in his place.
9 E Jeoacaz dormiu com seus pais, e o sepultaram em Samaria; e Jeoás, seu filho, reinou em seu lugar.

10 In the thirty-seventh year of the rule of Joash, king of Judah, Joash, the son of Jehoahaz, became king over Israel in Samaria, ruling for sixteen years.
10 No ano trinta e sete de Joás, rei de Judá, começou a reinar Jeoás, filho de Jeoacaz, sobre Israel, em Samaria, e reinou dezesseis anos.

11 He did evil in the eyes of the Lord, not turning away from the sin of Jeroboam, the son of Nebat, which he did and made Israel do, but he went on with it.
11 E fez o que era mal aos olhos do SENHOR; não se apartou de nenhum dos pecados de Jeroboão, filho de Nebate, que fez pecar a Israel, porém andou neles.

12 Now the rest of the acts of Joash, and all he did, and the force with which he went to war against Amaziah, king of Judah, are they not recorded in the book of the history of the kings of Israel?
12 Ora, o mais dos atos de Jeoás, e tudo quanto fez mais, e o seu poder, com que pelejou contra Amazias, rei de Judá, porventura, não estão escritos no livro das Crônicas dos Reis de Israel?

13 And Joash went to rest with his fathers and Jeroboam took his place as king; and Joash was put into the earth in Samaria with the kings of Israel.
13 E Jeoás dormiu com seus pais, e Jeroboão se assentou no seu trono; e Jeoás foi sepultado em Samaria, junto aos reis de Israel.

14 Now Elisha became ill with the disease which was the cause of his death: and Joash, king of Israel, came down to him, and weeping over him said, My father, my father, the war-carriages of Israel and its horsemen!
14 E Eliseu estava doente da sua doença de que morreu; e Jeoás, rei de Israel, desceu a ele, e chorou sobre o seu rosto, e disse: Meu pai, meu pai, carros de Israel e seus cavaleiros!

15 Then Elisha said to him, Take bow and arrows: and he took bow and arrows.
15 E Eliseu lhe disse: Toma um arco e flechas. E tomou um arco e flechas.

16 And he said to the king of Israel, Put your hand on the bow: and he put his hand on it; and Elisha put his hands on the king’s hands.
16 Então, disse ao rei de Israel: Põe a tua mão sobre o arco. E pôs sobre ele a sua mão; e Eliseu pôs as suas mãos sobre as mãos do rei.

17 Then he said; Let the window be open to the east: and he got it open. Then Elisha said, Let the arrow go; and he let it go. And he said, The Lord’s arrow of salvation, of salvation over Aram; for you will overcome the Aramaeans in Aphek and put an end to them.
17 E disse: Abre a janela para o oriente. E abriu-a. Então, disse Eliseu: Atira. E atirou; e disse: A flecha do livramento do SENHOR é a flecha do livramento contra os siros; porque ferirás os siros em Afeca, até os consumir.

18 And he said, Take the arrows: and he took them. And he said to the king of Israel, Send them down into the earth; and he did so three times and no more.
18 E disse mais: Toma as flechas. E tomou-as. Então, disse ao rei de Israel: Fere a terra. E feriu-a três vezes e cessou.

19 Then the man of God was angry with him and said, If you had done it five or six times, then you would have overcome Aram completely; but now you will only overcome them three times.
19 Então, o homem de Deus se indignou muito contra ele e disse: Cinco ou seis vezes a deverias ter ferido; então, feririas os siros até os consumir; porém agora só três vezes ferirás os siros.

20 And death came to Elisha and they put his body into the earth. Now in the spring of the year, armed bands of Moabites frequently came, overrunning the land.
20 Depois, morreu Eliseu, e o sepultaram. Ora, as tropas dos moabitas invadiam a terra, à entrada do ano.

21 And while they were putting a dead man into the earth, they saw a band coming; and they put the man quickly into the place where Elisha’s body was; and the dead man, on touching Elisha’s bones, came to life again, and got up on his feet.
21 E sucedeu que, enterrando eles um homem, eis que viram um bando e lançaram o homem na sepultura de Eliseu; e, caindo nela o homem e tocando os ossos de Eliseu, reviveu e se levantou sobre os seus pés.

22 And Israel was crushed under the power of Hazael, king of Aram, all the days of Jehoahaz.
22 E Hazael, rei da Síria, oprimiu a Israel todos os dias de Jeoacaz.

23 But the Lord was kind to them and had pity on them, caring for them, because of his agreement with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob; he would not put them to destruction or send them away from before his face till now.
23 Porém o SENHOR teve misericórdia deles, e se compadeceu deles, e tornou para eles, por amor do seu concerto com Abraão, Isaque e Jacó; e não os quis destruir e não os lançou ainda da sua presença.

24 Then Hazael, king of Aram, came to his end; and Ben-hadad his son became king in his place.
24 E morreu Hazael, rei da Síria; e Ben-Hadade, seu filho, reinou em seu lugar.

25 And Jehoash, the son of Jehoahaz, took again from Ben-hadad, the son of Hazael, the towns which he had taken from Jehoahaz his father in war. Three times Jehoash overcame him and got back the towns of Israel.
25 E Jeoás, filho de Jeoacaz, tornou a tomar as cidades das mãos de Ben-Hadade, que este tinha tomado das mãos de Jeoacaz, seu pai, na guerra; três vezes Jeoás o feriu e recuperou as cidades de Israel.

2 Kings 14

1 In the second year of Joash, son of Joahaz, king of Israel, Amaziah, the son of Joash, became king of Judah.
1 No segundo ano de Jeoás, filho de Jeoacaz, rei de Israel, começou a reinar Amazias, filho de Joás, rei de Judá.

2 He was twenty-five years old when he became king; and he was ruling in Jerusalem for twenty-nine years; his mother’s name was Jehoaddin of Jerusalem.
2 Tinha vinte e cinco anos quando começou a reinar e vinte e nove anos reinou em Jerusalém. E era o nome de sua mãe Jeoadã, de Jerusalém.

3 He did what was right in the eyes of the Lord, though not like David his father; he did as Joash his father had done.
3 E ele fez o que era reto aos olhos do SENHOR, ainda que não como Davi, seu pai; fez, porém, conforme tudo o que fizera Joás, seu pai.

4 But still the high places were not taken away; the people went on making offerings and burning them in the high places.
4 Tão-somente os altos se não tiraram; porque ainda o povo sacrificava e queimava incenso nos altos.

5 Now when he became strong in the kingdom, straight away he put to death those servants who had taken the life of the king his father;
5 Sucedeu, pois, que, sendo já o reino confirmado na sua mão, matou os seus servos que tinham matado o rei, seu pai.

6 But he did not put their children to death; for the orders of the Lord recorded in the book of the law of Moses say, The fathers are not to be put to death for the children, or the children for their fathers; but a man is to be put to death for the sin which he himself has done.
6 Porém os filhos dos matadores não matou, como está escrito no livro da Lei de Moisés, no qual o SENHOR deu ordem, dizendo: Não matarão os pais por causa dos filhos, e os filhos não matarão por causa dos pais; mas cada um será morto pelo seu pecado.

7 He put to the sword twelve thousand men of Edom in the Valley of Salt, and took Sela in war, naming it Joktheel, as it is to this day.
7 Amazias feriu a dez mil edomitas no vale do Sal e tomou a Sela na guerra; e chamou o seu nome Jocteel, até ao dia de hoje.

8 Then Amaziah sent representatives to Jehoash, the son of Jehoahaz, son of Jehu, king of Israel, saying, Come, let us have a meeting face to face.
8 Então, Amazias enviou mensageiros a Jeoás, filho de Jeoacaz, filho de Jeú, rei de Israel, dizendo: Vem, vejamo-nos face a face.

9 And Jehoash, 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.
9 Porém Jeoás, rei de Israel, enviou a Amazias, rei de Judá, dizendo: O cardo que está no Líbano enviou ao cedro que está no Líbano, dizendo: Dá tua filha por mulher a meu filho; mas os animais do campo, que estavam no Líbano, passaram e pisaram o cardo.

10 It is true that you have overcome Edom and your heart is uplifted; let that glory be enough for you, and keep in your country; why do you make causes of trouble, putting yourself, and Judah with you, in danger of downfall?
10 Na verdade, feriste os edomitas, e o teu coração se ensoberbeceu; gloria-te disso e fica em tua casa; e por que te entremeterias no mal, para caíres tu, e Judá contigo?

11 But Amaziah gave no attention. So Jehoash, king of Israel, went up, and he and Amaziah, king of Judah, came face to face at Beth-shemesh, which is in Judah.
11 Mas Amazias não o ouviu; e subiu Jeoás, rei de Israel, e Amazias, rei de Judá, e viram-se face a face em Bete-Semes, que está em Judá.

12 And Judah was overcome before Israel, so that they went in flight, every man to his tent.
12 E Judá foi ferido diante de Israel, e fugiu cada um para a sua tenda.

13 And Jehoash, king of Israel, made Amaziah, king of Judah, the son of Jehoash, son of Ahaziah, prisoner at Beth-shemesh, and came to Jerusalem, and had the wall of Jerusalem pulled down from the doorway of Ephraim to the door in the angle, four hundred cubits.
13 E Jeoás, rei de Israel, tomou a Amazias, rei de Judá, filho de Joás, filho de Acazias, em Bete-Semes, e veio a Jerusalém, e rompeu o muro de Jerusalém, desde a porta de Efraim até à porta da esquina, quatrocentos côvados.

14 And he took all the gold and silver and all the vessels which were in the house of the Lord and in the store-house of the king, together with those whose lives would be the price of broken faith, and went back to Samaria.
14 E tomou todo o ouro, e a prata, e todos os utensílios que se acharam na Casa do SENHOR e nos tesouros da casa do rei, como também os reféns; e voltou para Samaria.

15 Now the rest of the acts of Jehoash, and his power, and how he went to war with Amaziah, king of Judah, are they not recorded in the book of the history of the kings of Israel?
15 Ora, o mais dos atos de Jeoás, o que fez, e o seu poder, e como pelejou contra Amazias, rei de Judá, porventura, não estão escritos no livro das Crônicas dos Reis de Israel?

16 And Jehoash went to rest with his fathers, and was put into the earth in Samaria with the kings of Israel; and Jeroboam his son became king in his place.
16 E dormiu Jeoás com seus pais e foi sepultado em Samaria, junto aos reis de Israel; e Jeroboão, seu filho, reinou em seu lugar.

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

18 And the rest of the acts of Amaziah, are they not recorded in the book of the history of the kings of Judah?
18 Ora, o mais dos atos de Amazias, porventura, não está escrito no livro das Crônicas dos Reis de Judá?

19 Now they made a secret design against him in Jerusalem; and he went in flight to Lachish, but they sent after him to Lachish and put him to death there.
19 E conspiraram contra ele em Jerusalém, e fugiu para Laquis; porém enviaram após ele homens até Laquis; e estes o mataram ali.

20 And they took his body on horseback and put it into the earth with his fathers in Jerusalem, the town of David.
20 E o trouxeram em cima de cavalos e o sepultaram em Jerusalém, junto a seus pais, na Cidade de Davi.

21 Then all the people of Judah took Azariah, who was sixteen years old, and made him king in place of his father Amaziah.
21 E todo o povo de Judá tomou a Azarias, que já era de dezesseis anos, e o fizeram rei em lugar de Amazias, seu pai.

22 He was the builder of Elath, which he got back for Judah after the death of the king.
22 Azarias edificou a Elate e a restituiu a Judá, depois que o rei dormiu com seus pais.

23 In the fifteenth year of the rule of Amaziah, son of Joash, king of Judah, Jeroboam, the son of Joash, king of Israel, became king in Samaria, ruling for forty-one years.
23 No décimo quinto ano de Amazias, filho de Joás, rei de Judá, começou a reinar em Samaria Jeroboão, filho de Jeoás, rei de Israel, e reinou quarenta e um anos.

24 He did evil in the eyes of the Lord, not turning away from the sin which Jeroboam, the son of Nebat, did and made Israel do.
24 E fez o que era mal aos olhos do SENHOR; nunca se apartou de nenhum dos pecados de Jeroboão, filho de Nebate, que fez pecar a Israel.

25 He got back the old limits of Israel from the way into Hamath to the sea of the Arabah, as the Lord had said by his servant Jonah, the son of Amittai, the prophet of Gath-hepher.
25 Também este restabeleceu os termos de Israel, desde a entrada de Hamate até ao mar da Planície, conforme a palavra do SENHOR, Deus de Israel, a qual falara pelo ministério de seu servo Jonas, filho do profeta Amitai, o qual era de Gate-Hefer.

26 For the Lord saw how bitter was the trouble of Israel, and that everyone was cut off, he who was shut up and he who went free, and that Israel had no helper.
26 Porque viu o SENHOR que a miséria de Israel era mui amarga e que nem havia encerrado, nem livre, nem quem ajudasse a Israel.

27 And the Lord had not said that the name of Israel was to be taken away from the earth; but he gave them a saviour in Jeroboam, the son of Joash.
27 E ainda não falara o SENHOR em apagar o nome de Israel de debaixo do céu; porém os livrou por mão de Jeroboão, filho de Jeoás.

28 Now the rest of the acts of Jeroboam, and all he did, and his power, and how he went to war with Damascus, causing the wrath of the Lord to be turned away from Israel, are they not recorded in the book of the history of the kings of Israel?
28 Ora, o mais dos atos de Jeroboão, tudo quanto fez, e seu poder, como pelejou e como reconquistou Damasco e Hamate, pertencentes a Judá, sendo rei de Israel, porventura, não estão escritos no livro das Crônicas dos Reis de Israel?

29 And Jeroboam went to rest with his fathers, and was put into the earth with the kings of Israel; and Zechariah his son became king in his place.
29 E Jeroboão dormiu com seus pais, com os reis de Israel; e Zacarias, seu filho, reinou em seu lugar.

2 Kings 15

1 In the twenty-seventh year of the rule of Jeroboam, king of Israel, Azariah, son of Amaziah, became king of Judah.
1 No ano vinte e sete de Jeroboão, rei de Israel, começou a reinar Azarias, filho de Amazias, rei de Judá.

2 He was sixteen years old when he became king, and he was ruling in Jerusalem for fifty-two years; his mother’s name was Jecoliah of Jerusalem.
2 Tinha dezesseis anos quando começou a reinar e cinqüenta e dois anos reinou em Jerusalém; e era o nome de sua mãe Jecolias, de Jerusalém.

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

4 But he did not take away the high places, and the people still went on making offerings and burning them in the high places.
4 Tão-somente os altos se não tiraram; porque ainda o povo sacrificava e queimava incenso nos altos.

5 And the Lord sent disease on the king and he became a leper, and to the day of his death he was living separately in his private house. And Jotham his son was over his house, judging the people of the land.
5 E o SENHOR feriu o rei, e este ficou leproso até ao dia da sua morte e habitou numa casa separada; porém Jotão, filho do rei, tinha o cargo da casa, julgando o povo da terra.

6 Now the rest of the acts of Azariah, and all he did, are they not recorded in the book of the history of the kings of Judah?
6 Ora, o mais dos atos de Azarias e tudo o que fez, porventura, não estão escritos no livro das Crônicas dos Reis de Judá?

7 And Azariah went to rest with his fathers and was put into the earth with his fathers in the town of David; and Jotham his son became king in his place.
7 E Azarias dormiu com seus pais, e o sepultaram junto a seus pais, na Cidade de Davi; e Jotão, seu filho, reinou em seu lugar.

8 In the thirty-eighth year of Azaliah, king of Judah, Zechariah, son of Jeroboam, was king over Israel for six months.
8 No ano trinta e oito de Azarias, rei de Judá, reinou Zacarias, filho de Jeroboão, sobre Israel, em Samaria, seis meses.

9 And he did evil in the eyes of the Lord, as his father had done, not turning away from the sin which Jeroboam, the son of Nebat, did and made Israel do.
9 E fez o que era mal aos olhos do SENHOR, como tinham feito seus pais; nunca se apartou dos pecados de Jeroboão, filho de Nebate, que fez pecar a Israel.

10 And Shallum, the son of Jabesh, made a secret design against him, and, attacking him in Ibleam, put him to death and became king in his place.
10 E Salum, filho de Jabes, conspirou contra ele, e o feriu diante do povo, e o matou, e reinou em seu lugar.

11 Now the rest of the acts of Zechariah are recorded in the book of the history of the kings of Israel.
11 Ora, o mais dos atos de Zacarias, eis que está escrito no livro das Crônicas dos Reis de Israel.

12 This was what the Lord had said to Jehu, Your sons to the fourth generation will be kings of Israel. And so it came about.
12 Esta foi a palavra que o SENHOR falou a Jeú, dizendo: Teus filhos, até à quarta geração, se assentarão sobre o trono de Israel. E assim foi.

13 Shallum, the son of Jabesh, became king in the thirty-ninth year of Uzziah, king of Judah; and he was ruling in Samaria for the space of one month.
13 Salum, filho de Jabes, começou a reinar no ano trinta e nove de Uzias, rei de Judá; e reinou um mês inteiro em Samaria.

14 Then Menahem, the son of Gadi, went up from Tirzah and came to Samaria, and attacking Shallum, son of Jabesh, in Samaria, put him to death and made himself king in his place.
14 Porque Menaém, filho de Gadi, subiu de Tirza, e veio a Samaria, e feriu a Salum, filho de Jabes, em Samaria, e o matou, e reinou em seu lugar.

15 Now the rest of the acts of Shallum, and the secret design which he made, are recorded in the book of the history of the kings of Israel.
15 Ora, o mais dos atos de Salum e a conspiração que fez, eis que estão escritos no livro das Crônicas dos Reis de Israel.

16 Then Menahem sent destruction on Tappuah and all the people in it, and its limits, from Tirzah, because they would not let him come in; and he had all the women who were with child cut open.
16 Então, Menaém feriu a Tifsa e todos os que nela havia, como também seus termos desde Tirza, porque não lha tinham aberto; e os feriu, pois, e todas as mulheres grávidas fendeu pelo meio.

17 In the thirty-ninth year of Azariah, king of Judah, Menahem, the son of Gadi, became king over Israel, and was ruling in Samaria for ten years.
17 Desde o ano trinta e nove de Azarias, rei de Judá, Menaém, filho de Gadi, começou a reinar sobre Israel e reinou dez anos em Samaria.

18 He did evil in the eyes of the Lord; he did not keep himself from the sin which Jeroboam, the son of Nebat, did and made Israel do.
18 E fez o que era mal aos olhos do SENHOR; todos os seus dias se não apartou dos pecados de Jeroboão, filho de Nebate, que fez pecar a Israel.

19 In his day, Pul, the king of Assyria, came up against the land; and Menahem gave Pul a thousand talents of silver so that he might let him keep the kingdom.
19 Então, veio Pul, rei da Assíria, contra a terra; e Menaém deu a Pul mil talentos de prata, para que a sua mão fosse com ele, a fim de firmar o reino na sua mão.

20 And Menahem got the money from Israel, from all the men of wealth, fifty silver shekels from every man, to give to the king of Assyria. So the king of Assyria went back without stopping in the land.
20 E Menaém tirou esse dinheiro de Israel, de todos os poderosos e ricos, para o dar ao rei da Assíria, para cada homem cinqüenta siclos de prata; assim, voltou o rei da Assíria e não ficou ali na terra.

21 Now the rest of the acts of Menahem, and all he did, are they not recorded in the book of the history of the kings of Israel?
21 Ora, o mais dos atos de Menaém e tudo quanto fez, porventura, não estão escritos no livro das Crônicas dos Reis de Israel?

22 And Menahem went to rest with his fathers; and Pekahiah his son became king in his place.
22 E Menaém dormiu com seus pais; e Pecaías, seu filho, reinou em seu lugar.

23 In the fiftieth year of Azariah king of Judah, Pekahiah, the son of Menahem, became king over Israel in Samaria, ruling for two years.
23 No ano cinqüenta de Azarias, rei de Judá, começou a reinar Pecaías, filho de Menaém, e reinou sobre Israel, em Samaria, dois anos.

24 He did evil in the eyes of the Lord, not turning from the sin which Jeroboam, the son of Nebat, did and made Israel do.
24 E fez o que era mal aos olhos do SENHOR; nunca se apartou dos pecados de Jeroboão, filho de Nebate, que fez pecar a Israel.

25 And Pekah, the son of Remaliah, his captain, made a secret design against him, attacking him in the king’s great house in Samaria; and with him were fifty men of Gilead; and he put him to death and became king in his place.
25 E Peca, filho de Remalias, seu capitão, conspirou contra ele e o feriu em Samaria, no paço da casa do rei, juntamente com Argobe e com Arié; e com ele estavam cinqüenta homens dos filhos dos gileaditas; e o matou e reinou em seu lugar.

26 Now the rest of the acts of Pekahiah, and all he did, are recorded in the book of the history of the kings of Israel.
26 Ora, o mais dos atos de Pecaías e tudo quanto fez, eis que estão escritos no livro das Crônicas dos Reis de Israel.

27 In the fifty-second year of Azariah, king of Judah, Pekah, the son of Remaliah, became king over Israel in Samaria, ruling for twenty years.
27 No ano cinqüenta e dois de Azarias, rei de Judá, começou a reinar Peca, filho de Remalias, e reinou sobre Israel, em Samaria, vinte anos.

28 He did evil in the eyes of the Lord, not turning from the sin which Jeroboam, the son of Nebat, did and made Israel do.
28 E fez o que era mal aos olhos do SENHOR; nunca se apartou dos pecados de Jeroboão, filho de Nebate, que fez pecar a Israel.

29 In the days of Pekah, king of Israel, Tiglath-pileser, king of Assyria, came and took Ijon and Abel-beth-maacah and Janoah and Kedesh and Hazor and Gilead and Galilee and all the land of Naphtali; and he took the people away to Assyria.
29 Nos dias de Peca, rei de Israel, veio Tiglate-Pileser, rei da Assíria, e tomou a Ijom, e Abel-Bete-Maaca, e a Janoa, e a Quedes, e a Hazor, e a Gileade, e à Galiléia, e à toda a terra de Naftali, e os levou para a Assíria.

30 And Hoshea, the son of Elah, made a secret design against Pekah, the son of Remaliah, and, attacking him, put him to death and became king in his place, in the twentieth year of Jotham, the son of Uzziah.
30 E Oséias, filho de Elá, conspirou contra Peca, filho de Remalias, e o feriu, e o matou, e reinou em seu lugar, no vigésimo ano de Jotão, filho de Uzias.

31 Now the rest of the acts of Pekah, and all he did, are recorded in the book of the history of the kings of Israel.
31 Ora, o mais dos atos de Peca e tudo quanto fez, eis que estão escritos no livro das Crônicas dos Reis de Israel.

32 In the second year of Pekah, the son of Remaliah, king of Israel, Jotham, the son of Uzziah, became king of Judah.
32 No ano segundo de Peca, filho de Remalias, rei de Israel, começou a reinar Jotão, filho de Uzias, rei de Judá.

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

34 And he did what was right in the eyes of the Lord, as his father Uzziah had done.
34 E fez o que era reto aos olhos do SENHOR, fez conforme tudo quanto fizera Uzias, seu pai.

35 But he did not take away the high places, and the people still went on making offerings and burning them in the high places. He was the builder of the higher doorway of the house of the Lord.
35 Tão-somente os altos se não tiraram; porque ainda o povo sacrificava e queimava incenso nos altos; Jotão edificou a Porta Alta da Casa do SENHOR.

36 Now the rest of the acts of Jotham, and all he did, are they not recorded in the book of the history of the kings of Judah?
36 Ora, o mais dos atos de Jotão e tudo quanto fez, porventura, não estão escritos no livro das Crônicas dos Reis de Judá?

37 In those days the Lord first sent against Judah, Rezin, the king of Aram, and Pekah, the son of Remaliah.
37 Naqueles dias, começou o SENHOR a enviar contra Judá a Rezim, rei da Síria, e a Peca, filho de Remalias.

38 And Jotham went to rest with his fathers, and was put into the earth in the town of David his father; and Ahaz his son became king in his place.
38 E Jotão dormiu com seus pais e foi sepultado junto a seus pais, na Cidade de Davi, seu pai; e Acaz, seu filho, reinou em seu lugar.

2 Kings 16

1 In the seventeenth year of Pekah, the son of Remaliah, Ahaz, the son of Jotham, became king of Judah.
1 No ano dezessete de Peca, filho de Remalias, começou a reinar Acaz, filho de Jotão, rei de Judá.

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

3 But he went in the ways of the kings of Israel, and even made his son go through the fire, copying the disgusting ways of the nations whom the Lord had sent out of the land before the children of Israel.
3 Porque andou no caminho dos reis de Israel e até a seu filho fez passar pelo fogo, segundo as abominações dos gentios, que o SENHOR lançara fora de diante dos filhos de Israel.

4 And he made offerings, burning them 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 todo arvoredo.

5 Then Rezin, king of Aram, and Pekah, son of Remaliah, king of Israel, came up to Jerusalem to make war; and they made an attack on Ahaz, shutting him in, but were not able to overcome him.
5 Então, subiu Rezim, rei da Síria, com Peca, filho de Remalias, rei de Israel, a Jerusalém, à peleja; e cercaram Acaz, porém não o puderam vencer.

6 At that time the king of Edom got Elath back for Edom, and sent the Jews out of Elath; and the Edomites came back to Elath where they are living to this day.
6 Naquele mesmo tempo, Rezim, rei da Síria, restituiu Elate à Síria e lançou fora de Elate os judeus; e os siros vieram a Elate e habitaram ali até ao dia de hoje.

7 So Ahaz sent representatives to Tiglath-pileser, king of Assyria, saying, I am your servant and your son; come to my help against the kings of Aram and Israel who have taken up arms against me.
7 E Acaz enviou mensageiros a Tiglate-Pileser, rei da Assíria, dizendo: Eu sou teu servo e teu filho; sobe e livra-me das mãos do rei da Síria e das mãos do rei de Israel, que se levantam contra mim.

8 And Ahaz took the silver and gold which were in the house of the Lord and in the king’s store-house, and sent them as an offering to the king of Assyria.
8 E tomou Acaz a prata e o ouro que se achou na Casa do SENHOR e nos tesouros da casa do rei e mandou um presente ao rei da Assíria.

9 And the king of Assyria, in answer to his request, went up against Damascus and took it, and took its people away as prisoners to Kir, and put Rezin to death.
9 E o rei da Assíria lhe deu ouvidos; pois o rei da Assíria subiu contra Damasco, e tomou-a, e levou o povo para Quir, e matou a Rezim.

10 Then King Ahaz went to Damascus for a meeting with Tiglath-pileser, king of Assyria; and there he saw the altar which was at Damascus; and King Ahaz sent to Urijah the priest a copy of the altar, giving the design of it and all the details of its structure.
10 Então, o rei Acaz foi a Damasco, a encontrar-se com Tiglate-Pileser, rei da Assíria; e, vendo um altar que estava em Damasco, o rei Acaz enviou ao sacerdote Urias a aparência do altar e o modelo, conforme toda a sua obra.

11 And from the copy King Ahaz sent from Damascus, Urijah made an altar and had it ready by the time King Ahaz came back from Damascus.
11 E Urias, o sacerdote, edificou um altar conforme tudo o que o rei Acaz tinha ordenado de Damasco; assim o fez o sacerdote Urias, antes que o rei Acaz viesse de Damasco.

12 And when the king came from Damascus, he saw the altar; and he went up on it and made an offering on it.
12 Vindo, pois, de Damasco o rei, viu o altar; e o rei se chegou ao altar e sacrificou nele.

13 He made his burned offering and his meal offering and his drink offering there, draining out the blood of his peace-offerings on the altar.
13 E queimou o seu holocausto e a sua oferta de manjares, e derramou a sua libação, e espargiu o sangue dos seus sacrifícios pacíficos naquele altar.

14 And the brass altar, which was before the Lord, he took from the front of the house, from between his altar and the house of the Lord, and put it on the north side of his altar.
14 Porém o altar de cobre, que estava perante o SENHOR, tirou ele de diante da casa, de entre o seu altar e a Casa do SENHOR e pô-lo ao lado do seu altar, da banda do norte.

15 And King Ahaz gave orders to Urijah the priest, saying, Make the morning burned offering and the evening meal offering and the king’s burned offering and meal offering, with the burned offerings of all the people and their meal offerings and drink offerings, on the great altar, and put on it all the blood of the burned offerings and of the beasts which are offered; but the brass altar will be for my use to get directions from the Lord.
15 E o rei Acaz mandou a Urias, o sacerdote, dizendo: No grande altar, queima o holocausto da manhã, como também a oferta de manjares da noite, e o holocausto do rei, e a sua oferta de manjares, e o holocausto de todo o povo da terra, e a sua oferta de manjares, e as suas ofertas de bebida; e todo o sangue dos holocaustos, e todo o sangue dos sacrifícios espargirás nele; porém o altar de cobre será para mim, para inquirir dele.

16 So Urijah the priest did everything as the king said
16 E fez Urias, o sacerdote, conforme tudo quanto o rei Acaz lhe ordenara.

17 And King Ahaz took off the sides of the wheeled bases, and took down the great water-vessel from off the brass oxen which were under it and put it on a floor of stone.
17 E o rei Acaz cortou as cintas das bases, e de cima delas tomou a pia, e o mar tirou-o de sobre os bois de cobre, que estavam debaixo dele, e pô-lo sobre um pavimento de pedra.

18 ***the house of the Lord, because of the king of Assyria.
18 Também a cobertura do sábado, que edificaram na casa, e a entrada de fora do rei retirou da Casa do SENHOR, por causa do rei da Assíria.

19 Now the rest of the things which Ahaz did, are they not recorded in the book of the history of the kings of Judah?
19 Ora, o mais dos atos de Acaz e o que fez, porventura, não estão escritos no livro das Crônicas dos Reis de Judá?

20 And Ahaz went to rest with his fathers, and was put into the earth with his fathers in the town of David; and Hezekiah his son became king in his place.
20 E dormiu Acaz com seus pais e foi sepultado junto a seus pais, na Cidade de Davi; e Ezequias, seu filho, reinou em seu lugar.

2 Kings 17

1 In the twelfth year of Ahaz, king of Judah, Hoshea, the son of Elah, became king over Israel in Samaria, ruling for nine years.
1 No ano duodécimo de Acaz, rei de Judá, começou a reinar Oséias, filho de Elá, e reinou sobre Israel, em Samaria, nove anos.

2 He did evil in the eyes of the Lord, though not like the kings of Israel before him.
2 E fez o que era mal aos olhos do SENHOR; contudo, não como os reis de Israel que foram antes dele.

3 Against him came up Shalmaneser, king of Assyria, and Hoshea became his servant and sent him offerings.
3 Contra ele subiu Salmaneser, rei da Assíria; e Oséias ficou sendo servo dele e dava-lhe presentes.

4 But Hoshea’s broken faith became clear to the king of Assyria because he had sent representatives to So, king of Egypt, and did not send his offering to the king of Assyria, as he had done year by year: so the king of Assyria had him shut up in prison and put in chains.
4 Porém o rei da Assíria achou em Oséias conspiração, porque enviara mensageiros a Sô, rei do Egito, e não pagava presentes ao rei da Assíria cada ano, como dantes; então, o rei da Assíria o encerrou e aprisionou na casa do cárcere.

5 Then the king of Assyria went through all the land and came up to Samaria, shutting it in with his forces for three years.
5 Porque o rei da Assíria subiu por toda a terra, e veio até Samaria, e a cercou três anos.

6 In the ninth year of Hoshea, the king of Assyria took Samaria, and took Israel away to Assyria, placing them in Halah and in Habor on the river Gozan, and in the towns of the Medes.
6 No ano nono de Oséias, o rei da Assíria tomou a Samaria, e transportou a Israel para a Assíria, e fê-los habitar em Hala e em Habor, junto ao rio Gozã, e nas cidades dos medos.

7 And the wrath of the Lord came on Israel because they had done evil against the Lord their God, who took them out of the land of Egypt from under the yoke of Pharaoh, king of Egypt, and had become worshippers of other gods,
7 E sucedeu assim por os filhos de Israel pecarem contra o SENHOR, seu Deus, que os fizera subir da terra do Egito, de debaixo da mão de Faraó, rei do Egito; e temeram a outros deuses.

8 Living by the rules of the nations whom the Lord had sent out from before the children of Israel.
8 E andaram nos estatutos das nações que o SENHOR lançara fora de diante dos filhos de Israel e nos costumes dos reis de Israel.

9 And the children of Israel did secretly against the Lord their God things which were not right, building high places for themselves in all their towns, from the tower of the watchmen to the walled town.
9 E os filhos de Israel fizeram secretamente coisas que não eram retas, contra o SENHOR, seu Deus; e edificaram altos em todas as suas cidades, desde a torre dos atalaias até à cidade forte.

10 They put up pillars of stone and wood on every high hill and under every green tree:
10 E levantaram estátuas e imagens do bosque, em todos os altos outeiros e debaixo de todas as árvores verdes.

11 Burning their offerings in all the high places, as those nations did whom the Lord sent away from before them; they did evil things, moving the Lord to wrath;
11 E queimaram ali incenso em todos os altos, como as nações que o SENHOR transportara de diante deles; e fizeram coisas ruins, para provocarem à ira o SENHOR.

12 And they made themselves servants of disgusting things, though the Lord had said, You are not to do this.
12 E serviram os ídolos, dos quais o SENHOR lhes dissera: Não fareis estas coisas.

13 And he gave witness to Israel and Judah, by every prophet and seer, saying, Come back from your evil ways, and do my orders and keep my rules, and be guided by the law which I gave to your fathers and sent to you by my servants the prophets.
13 E o SENHOR protestou a Israel e a Judá, pelo ministério de todos os profetas e de todos os videntes, dizendo: Convertei-vos de vossos maus caminhos e guardai os meus mandamentos e os meus estatutos, conforme toda a Lei que ordenei a vossos pais e que eu vos enviei pelo ministério de meus servos, os profetas.

14 And they did not give ear, but became stiff-necked, like their fathers who had no faith in the Lord their God.
14 Porém não deram ouvidos; antes, endureceram a sua cerviz, como a cerviz de seus pais, que não creram no SENHOR, seu Deus.

15 And they went against his rules, and the agreement which he made with their fathers, and his laws which he gave them; they gave themselves up to things without sense or value, and became foolish like the nations round them, of whom the Lord had said, Do not as they do.
15 E rejeitaram os estatutos e o concerto que fizera com seus pais, como também os testemunhos com que protestara contra eles; e andaram após a vaidade e ficaram vãos, como também após as nações que estavam em roda deles, das quais o SENHOR lhes tinha dito que não fizessem como elas.

16 And turning their backs on all the orders which the Lord had given them, they made for themselves images of metal, and the image of Asherah, worshipping all the stars of heaven and becoming servants to Baal.
16 E deixaram todos os mandamentos do SENHOR, seu Deus, e fizeram imagens de fundição, dois bezerros; e fizeram um ídolo do bosque, e se prostraram perante todo o exército do céu, e serviram a Baal.

17 And they made their sons and their daughters go through the fire, and they made use of secret arts and unnatural powers, and gave themselves up to doing evil in the eyes of the Lord, till he was moved to wrath.
17 Também fizeram passar pelo fogo a seus filhos e suas filhas, e deram-se a adivinhações, e criam em agouros; e venderam-se para fazer o que era mal aos olhos do SENHOR, para o provocarem à ira.

18 So the Lord was very angry with Israel, and his face was turned away from them: only the tribe of Judah kept its place.
18 Pelo que o SENHOR muito se indignou contra Israel e os tirou de diante da sua face; nada mais ficou, senão a tribo de Judá.

19 (But even Judah did not keep the orders of the Lord their God, but were guided by the rules which Israel had made.
19 Até Judá não guardou os mandamentos do SENHOR, seu Deus; antes, andaram nos estatutos que Israel fizera.

20 So the Lord would have nothing to do with all the offspring of Israel, and sent trouble on them, and gave them up into the hands of their attackers, till he had sent them away from before his face.)
20 Pelo que o SENHOR rejeitou a toda semente de Israel, e os oprimiu, e os deu nas mãos dos despojadores, até que os tirou de diante da sua presença.

21 For Israel was broken off from the family of David, and they made Jeroboam, the son of Nebat, king, who, driving them away from the laws of the Lord, made them do a great sin.
21 Porque, depois que o Senhor rasgou a Israel da casa de Davi, e eles fizeram rei a Jeroboão, filho de Nebate, Jeroboão apartou a Israel de seguir o SENHOR e os fez pecar um grande pecado.

22 And the children of Israel went on with all the sins which Jeroboam did; they did not keep themselves from them;
22 Assim, andaram os filhos de Israel em todos os pecados que Jeroboão tinha feito; nunca se apartaram deles.

23 Till the Lord put Israel away from before his face, as he had said by all his servants the prophets. So Israel was taken away from their land to Assyria, to this day.
23 Até que o SENHOR tirou a Israel de diante da sua presença, como falara pelo ministério de todos os seus servos, os profetas; assim, foi Israel transportado da sua terra à Assíria, onde permanece até ao dia de hoje.

24 Then the king of Assyria took men from Babylon and from Cuthah and Avva and Hamath and Sepharvaim, and put them in the towns of Samaria in place of the children of Israel; so they got Samaria for their heritage, living in its towns.
24 E o rei da Assíria trouxe gente de Babel, e de Cuta, e de Ava, e de Hamate, e de Sefarvaim e a fez habitar nas cidades de Samaria, em lugar dos filhos de Israel; e tomaram a Samaria em herança e habitaram nas suas cidades.

25 Now when first they were living there they did not give worship to the Lord. So the Lord sent lions among them, causing the death of some of them.
25 E sucedeu que, no princípio da sua habitação ali, não temeram ao SENHOR; e mandou o SENHOR entre eles leões, que mataram a alguns deles.

26 So they said to the king of Assyria, The nations whom you have taken as prisoners and put in the towns of Samaria, have no knowledge of the way of the god of the land: so he has sent lions among them, causing their death, because they have no knowledge of his way.
26 Pelo que falaram ao rei da Assíria, dizendo: A gente que transportaste e fizeste habitar nas cidades de Samaria não sabe o costume do Deus da terra; pelo que ele mandou leões entre ela, e eis que a matam, porquanto não sabe o culto do Deus da terra.

27 Then the king of Assyria gave orders, saying, Send there one of the priests whom you took away, and let him be living there and teaching the people the way of the god of the land.
27 Então, o rei da Assíria mandou dizer: Levai ali um dos sacerdotes que transportastes de lá; que ele vá, e habite lá, e lhes ensine o costume do Deus da terra.

28 So one of the priests whom they had taken away as a prisoner from Samaria came back, and, living in Beth-el, became their teacher in the worship of the Lord.
28 Veio, pois, um dos sacerdotes que transportaram de Samaria, e habitou em Betel, e lhes ensinou como deviam temer ao SENHOR.

29 And every nation made gods for themselves, and put them in the houses of the high places which the Samaritans had made, every nation in the towns where they were living.
29 Porém cada nação fez os seus deuses, e os puseram nas casas dos altos que os samaritanos fizeram, cada nação nas suas cidades, nas quais habitavam.

30 The men of Babylon made Succoth-benoth, and the men of Cuth made Nergal, and the men of Hamath made Ashima,
30 E os de Babel fizeram Sucote-Benote; e os de Cuta fizeram Nergal; e os de Hamate fizeram Asima;

31 The Avvites made Nibhaz and Tartak, and the Sepharvites gave their children to be burned in the fire to Adrammelech and Anammelech, the gods of Sepharvaim.
31 E os aveus fizeram Nibaz e Tartaque; e os sefarvitas queimavam seus filhos no fogo a Adrameleque e a Anameleque, deuses de Sefarvaim.

32 So they went on worshipping the Lord, and made for themselves, from among all the people, priests for the high places, to make offerings for them in the houses of the high places.
32 Assim temiam ao SENHOR e dos mais humildes se fizeram sacerdotes dos lugares altos, os quais exerciam o ministério nas casas dos lugares altos.

33 They gave worship to the Lord, but they gave honour to their gods like the nations did from whom they had been taken as prisoners.
33 Assim, ao SENHOR temiam e também a seus deuses serviam, segundo o costume das nações dentre as quais tinham sido transportados.

34 So to this day they go on in their old ways, not worshipping the Lord or keeping his orders or his ways or the law and the rule which the Lord gave to the children of Jacob, to whom he gave the name Israel;
34 Até ao dia de hoje fazem segundo os primeiros costumes; não temem ao SENHOR, nem fazem segundo os seus estatutos, e segundo as suas ordenanças e segundo a lei, e segundo o mandamento que o SENHOR ordenou aos filhos de Jacó, a quem deu o nome de Israel.

35 And the Lord made an agreement with them and gave them orders, saying, You are to have no other gods; you are not to give worship to them or be their servants or make them offerings:
35 Contudo, o SENHOR tinha feito um concerto com eles e lhes ordenara, dizendo: Não temereis a outros deuses, nem vos inclinareis diante deles, nem os servireis, nem lhes sacrificareis.

36 But the Lord, who took you out of the land of Egypt with his great power and his outstretched arm, he is your God, to whom you are to give worship and make offerings:
36 Mas ao SENHOR, que vos fez subir da terra do Egito com grande força e com braço estendido, a este temereis, e a ele vos inclinareis, e a ele sacrificareis.

37 And the rules and the orders and the law which he put in writing for you, you are to keep and do for ever; you are to have no other gods.
37 E os estatutos, e as ordenanças, e a lei, e o mandamento que vos escreveu, tereis cuidado de os observar todos os dias; e não temereis a outros deuses.

38 And you are to keep in memory the agreement which I have made with you; and you are to have no other gods.
38 E do concerto que fiz convosco vos não esquecereis; e não temereis a outros deuses.

39 And you are to give worship to the Lord your God; for it is he who will give you salvation from the hands of all who are against you.
39 Mas ao SENHOR, vosso Deus, temereis, e ele vos livrará das mãos de todos os vossos inimigos.

40 But they gave no attention, but went on in their old way.
40 Porém eles não ouviram; antes, fizeram segundo o seu primeiro costume.

41 So these nations, worshipping the Lord, still were servants to the images they had made; their children and their children’s children did the same; as their fathers did, so do they, to this day.
41 Assim, estas nações temiam ao SENHOR e serviam as suas imagens de escultura; como fizeram seus pais, assim fazem também seus filhos e os filhos de seus filhos, até ao dia de hoje.

2 Kings 18

1 Now in the third year of Hoshea, son of Elah, king of Israel, Hezekiah, the son of Ahaz, became king of Judah.
1 E sucedeu que, no terceiro ano de Oséias, filho de Elá, rei de Israel, começou a reinar Ezequias, filho de Acaz, rei de Judá.

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

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

4 He had the high places taken away, and the stone pillars broken to bits, and the Asherah cut down; and the brass snake which Moses had made was crushed to powder at his order, because in those days the children of Israel had offerings burned before it, and he gave it the name Nehushtan.
4 Este tirou os altos, e quebrou as estátuas, e deitou abaixo os bosques, e fez em pedaços a serpente de metal que Moisés fizera, porquanto até àquele dia os filhos de Israel lhe queimavam incenso e lhe chamavam Neustã.

5 He had faith in the Lord, the God of Israel; so that there was no one like him among all the kings of Judah who were before him.
5 No SENHOR, Deus de Israel, confiou, de maneira que, depois dele, não houve seu semelhante entre todos os reis de Judá, nem entre os que foram antes dele.

6 For his heart was fixed on the Lord, not turning from his ways, and he did his orders which the Lord gave to Moses.
6 Porque se chegou ao SENHOR, não se apartou de após ele e guardou os mandamentos que o SENHOR tinha dado a Moisés.

7 And the Lord was with him; he did well in all his undertakings: and he took up arms against the king of Assyria and was his servant no longer.
7 Assim, foi o SENHOR com ele; para onde quer que saía, se conduzia com prudência; e se revoltou contra o rei da Assíria e não o serviu.

8 He overcame the Philistines as far as Gaza and its limits, from the tower of the watchman to the walled town.
8 Ele feriu os filisteus até Gaza, como também os termos dela, desde a torre dos atalaias até à cidade forte.

9 Now in the fourth year of King Hezekiah, which was the seventh year of Hoshea, son of Elah, king of Israel, Shalmaneser, king of Assyria, came up against Samaria, shutting it in with his armies.
9 E sucedeu, no quarto ano do rei Ezequias (que era o sétimo ano de Oséias, filho de Elá, rei de Israel), que Salmaneser, rei da Assíria, subiu contra Samaria e a cercou.

10 And at the end of three years they took it; in the sixth year of Hezekiah’s rule, which was the ninth year of Hoshea, king of Israel, Samaria was taken.
10 E a tomaram ao fim de três anos; sim, no ano sexto de Ezequias, que era o ano nono de Oséias, rei de Israel, Samaria foi tomada.

11 And the king of Assyria took Israel away as prisoners into Assyria, placing them in Halah and in Habor on the river Gozan, and in the towns of the Medes;
11 E o rei da Assíria transportou a Israel para a Assíria; e os fez levar para Hala e para Habor, junto ao rio Gozã, e às cidades dos medos;

12 Because they did not give ear to the voice of the Lord their God, but went against his agreement, even against everything ordered by Moses, the servant of the Lord, and they did not give ear to it or do it.
12 porquanto não obedeceram à voz do SENHOR, seu Deus; antes, traspassaram o seu concerto e tudo quanto Moisés, servo do SENHOR, tinha ordenado; nem o ouviram nem o fizeram.

13 Now in the fourteenth year of king Hezekiah, Sennacherib, king of Assyria, came up against all the walled towns of Judah and took them.
13 Porém, no ano décimo quarto do rei Ezequias subiu Senaqueribe, rei da Assíria, contra todas as cidades fortes de Judá e as tomou.

14 And Hezekiah, king of Judah, sent to Lachish, to the king of Assyria, saying, I have done wrong; give up attacking me, and whatever you put on me I will undergo. And the payment he was to make was fixed by the king of Assyria at three hundred talents of silver and thirty talents of gold.
14 Então, Ezequias, rei de Judá, enviou ao rei da Assíria, a Laquis, dizendo: Pequei; retira-te de mim; tudo o que me impuseres levarei. Então, o rei da Assíria impôs a Ezequias, rei de Judá, trezentos talentos de prata e trinta talentos de ouro.

15 So Hezekiah gave him all the silver in the house of the Lord, and in the king’s store-house.
15 Assim, deu Ezequias toda a prata que se achou na Casa do SENHOR e nos tesouros da casa do rei.

16 And at that time Hezekiah had the gold from the doors of the Lord’s house, and from the door-pillars plated by him, cut off and gave it to the king of Assyria.
16 Naquele tempo, cortou Ezequias o ouro das portas do templo do SENHOR e das ombreiras, de que Ezequias, rei de Judá, as cobrira, e o deu ao rei da Assíria.

17 Then the king of Assyria sent the Tartan and the Rab-saris and the Rab-shakeh from Lachish to Jerusalem, to King Hezekiah, with a strong force. And they went up and came to Jerusalem, and took up their position by the stream of the higher pool, by the highway of the washerman’s field.
17 Contudo, enviou o rei da Assíria a Tartã, e a Rabe-Saris, e a Rabsaqué, de Laquis, com um grande exército, ao rei Ezequias, a Jerusalém; e subiram, e vieram a Jerusalém; e, subindo e vindo eles, pararam ao pé do aqueduto da piscina superior, que está junto ao caminho do campo do lavandeiro.

18 And they sent for the king, and Eliakim, the son of Hilkiah, who was over the house, and Shebna the scribe, and Joah, the son of Asaph, the recorder, came out to them.
18 E chamaram o rei, e saiu a eles Eliaquim, filho de Hilquias, o mordomo, e Sebna, o escrivão, e Joá, filho de Asafe, o chanceler.

19 And the Rab-shakeh said to them, Say now to Hezekiah, These are the words of the great king, the king of Assyria: In what are you placing your hope?
19 E Rabsaqué lhes disse: Ora, dizei a Ezequias: Assim diz o grande rei, o rei da Assíria: Que confiança é esta em que confias?

20 You say you have a design, and strength for war, but these are only words. Now to whom are you looking for support, that you have gone against my authority?
20 Dizes tu (porém palavra de lábios é): Há conselho e poder para a guerra. Em que, pois, agora, confias, que contra mim te revoltas?

21 See, now, you are basing your hope on that broken rod of Egypt, which will go through a man’s hand if he makes use of it for a support; for so is Pharaoh, king of Egypt, to all who put their faith in him.
21 Eis que, agora, tu confias naquele bordão de cana quebrada, no Egito, no qual, se alguém se encostar, entrar-lhe-á pela mão e lha furará; assim é Faraó, rei do Egito, para com todos os que nele confiam.

22 And if you say to me, Our hope is in the Lord our God: is it not he, whose high places and altars Hezekiah has taken away, saying to Judah and Jerusalem that worship may only be given before this altar in Jerusalem?
22 Se, porém, me disserdes: No SENHOR, nosso Deus, confiamos, porventura, não é este aquele cujos altos e cujos altares Ezequias tirou, dizendo a Judá e a Jerusalém: Perante este altar vos inclinareis em Jerusalém?

23 And now, take a chance with my master, the king of Assyria, and I will give you two thousand horses, if you are able to put horsemen on them.
23 Ora, pois, dá agora reféns ao meu senhor, o rei da Assíria, e dar-te-ei dois mil cavalos, se tu puderes dar cavaleiros para eles.

24 How then may you put to shame the least of my master’s servants? and you have put your hope in Egypt for war-carriages and horsemen:
24 Como, pois, farias virar o rosto de um só príncipe dos menores servos de meu senhor? Porém tu confias no Egito, por causa dos carros e cavaleiros.

25 And have I now come up to send destruction on this place without the Lord’s authority? It was the Lord himself who said to me, Go up against this land and make it waste.
25 Agora, pois, subi eu, porventura, sem o SENHOR contra este lugar, para o destruir? O SENHOR me disse: Sobe contra esta terra e destrói-a.

26 Then Eliakim, the son of Hilkiah, and Shebna and Joah said to the Rab-shakeh, Will you kindly make use of the Aramaean language in talking to your servants, for we are used to it, and do not make use of the Jews’ language in the hearing of the people on the wall.
26 Então, disseram Eliaquim, filho de Hilquias, e Sebna, e Joá, a Rabsaqué: Rogamos-te que fales aos teus servos em siríaco, porque bem o entendemos; e não nos fales em judaico, aos ouvidos do povo que está em cima do muro.

27 But the Rab-shakeh said to them, Is it to your master or to you that my master has sent me to say these words? has he not sent me to the men seated on the wall? for they are the people who will be short of food with you when the town is shut in.
27 Porém Rabsaqué lhes disse: Porventura, mandou-me meu senhor só a teu senhor e a ti, para falar estas palavras? E não, antes, aos homens que estão sentados em cima do muro, para que juntamente convosco comam o seu esterco e bebam a sua urina?

28 Then the Rab-shakeh got up and said with a loud voice in the Jews’ language, Give ear to the words of the great king, the king of Assyria;
28 Rabsaqué, pois, se pôs em pé, e clamou em alta voz em judaico, e falou, e disse: Ouvi a palavra do grande rei, do rei da Assíria.

29 This is what the king says: Do not be tricked by Hezekiah, for there is no salvation for you in him.
29 Assim diz o rei: Não vos engane Ezequias; porque não vos poderá livrar da sua mão;

30 And do not let Hezekiah make you put your faith in the Lord, saying, The Lord will certainly keep us safe, and this town will not be given into the hands of the king of Assyria.
30 nem tampouco vos faça Ezequias confiar no SENHOR, dizendo: Certamente nos livrará o SENHOR, e esta cidade não será entregue na mão do rei da Assíria.

31 Do not give ear to Hezekiah, for this is what the king of Assyria says: Make peace with me and come out to me; and everyone will be free to take the fruit of his vine and of his fig-tree, and the water of his spring;
31 Não deis ouvidos a Ezequias; porque assim diz o rei da Assíria: Contratai comigo por presentes e saí a mim; e coma cada um da sua vide e da sua figueira e beba cada um a água da sua cisterna.

32 Till I come and take you away to a land like yours, a land of grain and wine, a land of bread and vine-gardens, a land of oil-giving olives and of honey, so that life and not death may be your fate. Give no attention to Hezekiah when he says to you, The Lord will keep us safe.
32 Até que eu venha e vos leve para uma terra como a vossa, terra de trigo e de mosto, terra de pão e de vinhas, terra de oliveiras, de azeite e de mel; e assim vivereis e não morrereis; não deis ouvidos a Ezequias, porque vos incita, dizendo: O SENHOR nos livrará.

33 Has any one of the gods of the nations kept his land from falling into the hands of the king of Assyria?
33 Porventura, os deuses das nações puderam livrar, cada um a sua terra, das mãos do rei da Assíria?

34 Where are the gods of Hamath and of Arpad? where are the gods of Sepharvaim, of Hena and Ivvah? have they kept Samaria out of my hands?
34 Que é feito dos deuses de Hamate e de Arpade? Que é feito dos deuses de Sefarvaim, Hena e Iva? Porventura, livraram a Samaria da minha mão?

35 Who among all the gods of these countries have kept their country from falling into my hands, to give cause for the thought that the Lord will keep Jerusalem from falling into my hands?
35 Quais são eles dentre todos os deuses das terras, os que livraram a sua terra da minha mão, para que o SENHOR livrasse a Jerusalém da minha mão?

36 But the people kept quiet and gave him no answer: for the king’s order was, Give him no answer.
36 Porém calou-se o povo e não lhe respondeu uma só palavra; porque mandado do rei havia, dizendo: Não lhe respondereis.

37 Then Eliakim, the son of Hilkiah, who was over the house, and Shebna the scribe, and Joah, the son of Asaph, the recorder, came to Hezekiah, with their clothing parted as a sign of grief, and gave him an account of what the Rab-shakeh had said.
37 Então, Eliaquim, filho de Hilquias, o mordomo, e Sebna, o escrivão, e Joá, filho de Asafe, o chanceler, vieram a Ezequias com as vestes rasgadas e lhe fizeram saber as palavras de Rabsaqué.

2 Kings 19

1 And on hearing it, King Hezekiah took off his robe, and put on haircloth, and went into the house of the Lord.
1 E aconteceu que Ezequias, tendo-o ouvido, rasgou as suas vestes, e se cobriu de pano de saco, e entrou na Casa do SENHOR.

2 And he sent Eliakim, who was over the house, and Shebna the scribe, and the chief priests, dressed in haircloth, to Isaiah the prophet, the son of Amoz.
2 Então, enviou a Eliaquim, o mordomo, e a Sebna, o escrivão, e aos anciãos dos sacerdotes cobertos de pano de saco, ao profeta Isaías, filho de Amoz;

3 And they said to him, Hezekiah says, This day is a day of trouble and punishment and shame; for the children are ready to come to birth, but there is no strength to give birth to them.
3 os quais disseram-lhe: Assim diz Ezequias: Este dia é dia de angústia, e de vituperação, e de blasfêmia; porque os filhos chegaram ao parto, e não há força para os ter.

4 It may be that the Lord your God will give ear to the words of the Rab-shakeh, whom the king of Assyria, his master, sent to say evil things against the living God, and will make his words come to nothing: so then make your prayer for the rest of the people.
4 Bem pode ser que o SENHOR, teu Deus, ouça todas as palavras de Rabsaqué, a quem enviou o seu senhor, o rei da Assíria, para afrontar o Deus vivo e para vituperá-lo com as palavras que o SENHOR, teu Deus, tem ouvido; faze, pois, oração pelo resto que se acha.

5 So the servants of King Hezekiah came to Isaiah.
5 E os servos do rei Ezequias vieram a Isaías.

6 And Isaiah said to them, This is what you are to say to your master: The Lord says, Be not troubled by the words which the servants of the king of Assyria have said against me in your hearing.
6 E Isaías lhes disse: Assim direis a vosso senhor: Assim diz o SENHOR: Não temas as palavras que ouviste, com as quais os servos do rei da Assíria me blasfemaram.

7 See, I will put a spirit into him, and bad news will come to his ears, and he will go back to his land; and there I will have him put to death by the sword.
7 Eis que meterei nele um espírito e ele ouvirá um ruído e voltará para a sua terra; à espada o farei cair na sua terra.

8 So the Rab-shakeh went back, and when he got there the king of Assyria was making war against Libnah, for it had come to his ears that he had gone away from Lachish.
8 Voltou, pois, Rabsaqué e achou o rei da Assíria pelejando contra Libna, porque tinha ouvido que se havia partido de Laquis.

9 And when news came to him that Tirhakah, king of Ethiopia, had made an attack on him, he sent representatives to Hezekiah again, saying,
9 E, ouvindo ele dizer de Tiraca, rei de Cuxe: Eis que há saído para te fazer guerra; tornou a enviar mensageiros a Ezequias, dizendo:

10 This is what you are to say to Hezekiah, king of Judah: Let not your God, in whom is your faith, give you a false hope, saying, Jerusalem will not be given into the hands of the king of Assyria.
10 Assim falareis a Ezequias, rei de Judá, dizendo: Não te engane o teu Deus, em quem confias, dizendo: Jerusalém não será entregue na mão do rei da Assíria.

11 No doubt the story has come to your ears of what the kings of Assyria have done to all lands, putting them to the curse; and will you be kept safe?
11 Eis que já tens ouvido o que fizeram os reis da Assíria a todas as terras, destruindo-as totalmente; e tu te livrarás?

12 Did the gods of the nations keep safe those on whom my fathers sent destruction, Gozan and Haran and Rezeph and the children of Eden who were in Telassar?
12 Porventura, as livraram os deuses das nações, a quem destruíram, como a Gozã e a Harã, e a Rezefe, e aos filhos de Éden, que estavam em Telassar?

13 Where is the king of Hamath, and the king of Arpad, and the king of the town of Sepharvaim, of Hena and of Ivvah?
13 Que é feito do rei de Hamate, e do rei de Arpade, e do rei da cidade de Sefarvaim, de Hena e de Iva?

14 And Hezekiah took the letter from the hands of those who had come with it; and after reading it, Hezekiah went up to the house of the Lord, opening the letter there before the Lord.
14 Recebendo, pois, Ezequias as cartas das mãos dos mensageiros e lendo-as, subiu à Casa do SENHOR; e Ezequias as estendeu perante o SENHOR.

15 And Hezekiah made his prayer to the Lord, saying, O Lord, the God of Israel, seated between the winged ones, you only are the God of all the kingdoms of the earth; you have made heaven and earth.
15 E orou Ezequias perante o SENHOR e disse: Ó SENHOR, Deus de Israel, que habitas entre os querubins, tu mesmo, só tu és Deus de todos os reinos da terra; tu fizeste os céus e a terra.

16 Let your ear be turned to us, O Lord, and let your eyes be open, O Lord, and see; take note of all the words of Sennacherib who has sent men to say evil against the living God.
16 Inclina, SENHOR, o teu ouvido e ouve; abre, SENHOR, os teus olhos e olha: e ouve as palavras de Senaqueribe, que ele enviou para afrontar o Deus vivo.

17 Truly, O Lord, the kings of Assyria have made waste the nations and their lands,
17 Verdade é, ó SENHOR, que os reis da Assíria assolaram as nações e as suas terras.

18 And have given their gods to the fire; for they were no gods, but wood and stone, the work of men’s hands; so they have given them to destruction.
18 E lançaram os seus deuses no fogo, porquanto deuses não eram, mas obra de mãos de homens, madeira e pedra; por isso, os destruíram.

19 But now, O Lord our God, give us salvation from his hands, so that it may be clear to all the kingdoms of the earth that you and only you, O Lord, are God.
19 Agora, pois, ó SENHOR, nosso Deus, sê servido de nos livrar da sua mão; e, assim, saberão todos os reinos da terra que só tu és o SENHOR Deus.

20 Then Isaiah, the son of Amoz, sent to Hezekiah, saying, The Lord, the God of Israel, says, The prayer which you have made to me against Sennacherib, king of Assyria, has come to my ears.
20 Então, Isaías, filho de Amoz, mandou dizer a Ezequias: Assim diz o SENHOR, Deus de Israel: O que me pediste acerca de Senaqueribe, rei da Assíria, eu o ouvi.

21 This is the word which the Lord has said about him: In the eyes of the virgin daughter of Zion you are shamed and laughed at; the daughter of Jerusalem has made sport of you.
21 Esta é a palavra que o SENHOR falou dele: A virgem, a filha de Sião, te despreza, de ti zomba; a filha de Jerusalém meneia a cabeça por detrás de ti.

22 Against whom have you said evil and bitter things? against whom has your voice been loud and your eyes lifted up? even against the Holy One of Israel.
22 A quem afrontaste e blasfemaste? E contra quem alçaste a voz e ergueste os teus olhos ao alto? Contra o Santo de Israel?

23 You have sent your servants with evil words against the Lord, and have said, With all my war-carriages I have come up to the top of the mountains, to the inmost parts of Lebanon; its tall cedars will be cut down, and the best trees of its woods; I will come up into his highest places, into his thick woods.
23 Por meio de teus mensageiros, afrontaste o SENHOR e disseste: Com a multidão de meus carros, subo eu ao alto dos montes, aos lados do Líbano, e cortarei os seus altos cedros e as suas mais formosas faias, e entrarei nas suas pousadas extremas, até no bosque do seu campo fértil.

24 I have made water-holes and taken their waters, and with my foot I have made all the rivers of Egypt dry.
24 Eu cavei, e bebi águas estranhas, e com as plantas de meus pés secarei todos os rios dos lugares fortes.

25 Has it not come to your ears how I did it long before, purposing it in times long past? Now I have given effect to my design, so that by you strong towns might be turned into masses of broken walls.
25 Porventura, não ouviste que já dantes fiz isso e já desde os dias antigos o formei? Agora, porém, o fiz vir, para que fosses tu que reduzisses as cidades fortes a montões desertos.

26 This is why their townsmen had no power, they were broken and put to shame; they were like the grass of the field and the green plant, like grass on the house-tops.
26 Por isso, os moradores delas, com as mãos encolhidas, ficaram pasmados e confundidos; eram como a erva do campo, e a hortaliça verde, e o feno dos telhados, e o trigo queimado, antes que se levante.

27 But I have knowledge of your getting up and your resting, of your going out and your coming in.
27 Porém o teu assentar, e o teu sair, e o teu entrar, e o teu furor contra mim, eu o sei.

28 Because your wrath against me and your words of pride have come up to my ears, I will put my hook in your nose and my cord in your lips, and I will make you go back by the way you came.
28 Por causa do teu furor contra mim e porque a tua revolta subiu aos meus ouvidos, portanto, porei o meu anzol no teu nariz e o meu freio, nos teus lábios e te farei voltar pelo caminho por onde vieste.

29 And this will be the sign to you: you will get your food this year from what comes up of itself; and in the second year from the produce of the same; and in the third year you will put in your seed and get in the grain and make vine-gardens and take of their fruit.
29 E isto te será por sinal: Este ano se comerá o que nascer por si mesmo, e no ano seguinte o que daí proceder; porém, no terceiro ano, semeai, e segai, e plantai vinhas, e comei os seus frutos.

30 And those of Judah who are still living will again take root in the earth and give fruit.
30 Porque o que escapou da casa de Judá e ficou de resto tornará a lançar raízes para baixo e dará fruto para cima.

31 For from Jerusalem those who have been kept safe will go out, and those who are still living will go out of Mount Zion: by the fixed purpose of the Lord of armies this will be done.
31 Porque de Jerusalém sairá o restante, e do monte de Sião, o que escapou; o zelo do SENHOR fará isso.

32 For this cause the Lord says about the king of Assyria, He will not come into this town, or send an arrow against it; he will not come before it with arms, or put up an earthwork against it;
32 Portanto, assim diz o SENHOR acerca do rei da Assíria: Não entrará nesta cidade, nem lançará nela flecha alguma; nem tampouco virá perante ela com escudo, nem levantará contra ela tranqueira alguma.

33 By the way he came he will go back, and he will not get into this town, says the Lord.
33 Pelo caminho por onde vier, por ele voltará; porém nesta cidade não entrará, diz o SENHOR.

34 For I will keep this town safe, for my honour, and for the honour of my servant David.
34 Porque eu ampararei a esta cidade, para a livrar, por amor de mim e por amor do meu servo Davi.

35 And that night the angel of the Lord went out and put to death in the army of the Assyrians a hundred and eighty-five thousand men; and when the people got up early in the morning, there was nothing to be seen but dead bodies.
35 Sucedeu, pois, que naquela mesma noite, saiu o anjo do SENHOR e feriu no arraial dos assírios a cento e oitenta e cinco mil deles; e, levantando-se pela manhã cedo, eis que todos eram corpos mortos.

36 So Sennacherib, king of Assyria, went back to his place at Nineveh.
36 Então, Senaqueribe, rei da Assíria, partiu, e foi; e voltou e ficou em Nínive.

37 And it came about, when he was worshipping in the house of Nisroch his god, that his sons Adrammelech and Sharezer put him to death with the sword; and they went in flight into the land of Ararat. And Esar-haddon his son became king in his place.
37 E sucedeu que, estando ele prostrado na casa de Nisroque, seu deus, Adrameleque e Sarezer, seus filhos, o feriram à espada; porém eles escaparam para a terra de Ararate; e Esar-Hadom, seu filho, reinou em seu lugar.

2 Kings 20

1 In those days Hezekiah was ill and near death. And Isaiah the prophet, the son of Amoz, came to him, and said to him, The Lord says, Put your house in order, for your death is near.
1 Naqueles dias, adoeceu Ezequias de morte; e o profeta Isaías, filho de Amoz, veio a ele e lhe disse: Assim diz o SENHOR: Ordena a tua casa, porque morrerás e não viverás.

2 Then, turning his face to the wall, he made his prayer to the Lord, saying,
2 Então, virou o rosto para a parede e orou ao SENHOR, dizendo:

3 O Lord, keep in mind how I have been true to you with all my heart, and have done what is good in your eyes. And Hezekiah gave way to bitter weeping.
3 Ah! SENHOR! Sê servido de te lembrar de que andei diante de ti em verdade e com o coração perfeito e fiz o que era reto aos teus olhos. E chorou Ezequias muitíssimo.

4 Now before Isaiah had gone out of the middle of the town, the word of the Lord came to him, saying,
4 Sucedeu, pois, que, não havendo Isaías ainda saído do meio do pátio, veio a ele a palavra do SENHOR, dizendo:

5 Go back and say to Hezekiah, the ruler of my people, The Lord, the God of David your father, says, Your prayer has come to my ears, and I have seen your weeping; see, I will make you well: on the third day you will go up to the house of the Lord.
5 Volta e dize a Ezequias, chefe do meu povo: Assim diz o SENHOR, Deus de Davi, teu pai: Ouvi a tua oração e vi as tuas lágrimas; eis que eu te sararei; ao terceiro dia subirás à Casa do SENHOR.

6 I will give you fifteen more years of life; and I will keep you and this town safe from the hands of the king of Assyria; I will keep this town safe, for my honour, and for the honour of my servant David.
6 E acrescentarei aos teus dias quinze anos e das mãos do rei da Assíria te livrarei, a ti e a esta cidade; e ampararei esta cidade por amor de mim e por amor de Davi, meu servo.

7 Then Isaiah said, Take a cake of figs. So they took it and put it on his wound, and he got better.
7 Disse mais Isaías: Tomai uma pasta de figos. E a tomaram e a puseram sobre a chaga; e ele sarou.

8 And Hezekiah said to Isaiah, What is to be the sign that the Lord will make me well, and that I will go up to the house of the Lord on the third day?
8 E Ezequias disse a Isaías: Qual é o sinal de que o SENHOR me sarará e de que, ao terceiro dia, subirei à Casa do SENHOR?

9 And Isaiah said, This is the sign the Lord will give you, that he will do what he has said; will the shade go forward ten degrees or back?
9 E disse Isaías: Isto te será sinal, da parte do SENHOR, de que o SENHOR cumprirá a palavra que disse: Adiantar-se-á a sombra dez graus ou voltará dez graus atrás?

10 And Hezekiah said in answer, It is a simple thing for the shade to go forward; but let it go back ten degrees.
10 Então, disse Ezequias: É fácil que a sombra decline dez graus; não aconteça isso, mas volte a sombra dez graus.

11 Then Isaiah the prophet made prayer to the Lord, and he made the shade go back ten degrees from its position on the steps of Ahaz.
11 Então, o profeta Isaías clamou ao SENHOR; e fez voltar a sombra dez graus, pelos graus que já tinha declinado no relógio de sol de Acaz.

12 At that time, Merodach-baladan, the son of Baladan, king of Babylon, sent letters with an offering to Hezekiah, because he had news that Hezekiah had been ill.
12 Naquele tempo, enviou Merodaque-Baladã, filho de Baladã, rei de Babilônia, cartas e um presente a Ezequias; porque ouvira que Ezequias tinha estado doente.

13 And Hezekiah was glad at their coming and let them see all his store of wealth, the silver and the gold and the spices and the oil of great price, and the house of his arms, and everything there was in his stores; there was nothing in all his house or his kingdom which Hezekiah did not let them see.
13 E Ezequias lhes deu ouvidos e lhes mostrou toda a casa de seu tesouro, a prata, e o ouro, e as especiarias, e os melhores ungüentos, e a sua casa de armas, e tudo quanto se achou nos seus tesouros; coisa nenhuma houve que lhes não mostrasse, nem em sua casa, nem em todo o seu domínio.

14 Then Isaiah the prophet came to King Hezekiah and said to him, What did these men say and where did they come from? And Hezekiah said, They came from a far country, even from Babylon.
14 Então, o profeta Isaías veio ao rei Ezequias e lhe disse: Que disseram aqueles homens, e de onde vieram a ti? E disse Ezequias: De um país mui remoto vieram, de Babilônia.

15 And he said, What have they seen in your house? And Hezekiah said in answer, They saw everything in my house: there is nothing among my stores which I did not let them see.
15 E disse ele: Que viram em tua casa? E disse Ezequias: Tudo quanto há em minha casa viram; coisa nenhuma há nos meus tesouros que eu lhes não mostrasse.

16 And Isaiah said to Hezekiah, Give ear to the word of the Lord.
16 Então, disse Isaías a Ezequias: Ouve a palavra do SENHOR.

17 Truly, days are coming when everything in your house, and whatever your fathers have put in store till this day, will be taken away to Babylon: all will be gone, says the Lord.
17 Eis que vêm dias em que tudo quanto houver em tua casa, com que entesouraram teus pais até ao dia de hoje, será levado para Babilônia; não ficará coisa alguma, disse o SENHOR.

18 And your sons, the offspring of your body, they will take away to be unsexed servants in the house of the king of Babylon.
18 E ainda até de teus filhos, que procederem de ti, e que tu gerares tomarão, para que sejam eunucos no paço do rei de Babilônia.

19 Then Hezekiah said to Isaiah, Good is the word of the Lord which you have said. Then he said, …if in my time there is peace and righteousness?
19 Então, disse Ezequias a Isaías: Boa é a palavra do SENHOR que disseste. Disse mais: E não haverá, pois, em meus dias paz e verdade?

20 Now the rest of the acts of Hezekiah, and his power, and how he made the pool and the stream, to take water into the town, are they not recorded in the book of the history of the kings of Judah?
20 Ora, o mais dos atos de Ezequias, e todo o seu poder, e como fez a piscina e o aqueduto, e como fez vir a água à cidade, porventura, não estão escritos no livro das Crônicas dos Reis de Judá?

21 And Hezekiah went to rest with his fathers; and Manasseh his son became king in his place.
21 E Ezequias dormiu com seus pais; e Manassés, seu filho, reinou em seu lugar.

2 Kings 21

1 Manasseh was twelve years old when he became king; for fifty-five years he was ruling in Jerusalem; and his mother’s name was Hephzi-bah.
1 Tinha Manassés doze anos de idade quando começou a reinar e cinqüenta e cinco anos reinou em Jerusalém; e era o nome de sua mãe Hefzibá.

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

3 He put up again the high places which had been pulled down by Hezekiah his father; he made altars for Baal, and an Asherah, as Ahab, king of Israel, had done; he was a worshipper and servant of all the stars of heaven.
3 Porque tornou a edificar os altos que Ezequias, seu pai, tinha destruído, e levantou altares a Baal, e fez um bosque como o que fizera Acabe, rei de Israel, e se inclinou diante de todo o exército dos céus, e os serviu.

4 And he put up altars in the house of the Lord, of which the Lord had said, In Jerusalem will I put my name.
4 E edificou altares na Casa do SENHOR, de que o SENHOR tinha dito: Em Jerusalém, porei o meu nome.

5 And he put up altars for all the stars of heaven in the two outer squares of the house of the Lord.
5 Também edificou altares a todo o exército dos céus em ambos os átrios da Casa do SENHOR.

6 And he made his son go through the fire, and made use of secret arts and signs for reading the future; he 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 E até fez passar a seu filho pelo fogo, e adivinhava pelas nuvens, e era agoureiro, e instituiu adivinhos e feiticeiros, e prosseguiu em fazer mal aos olhos do SENHOR, para o provocar à ira.

7 He put the image of Asherah which he had made in the house of which the Lord 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, I will put my name for ever.
7 Também pôs uma imagem de escultura, do bosque que tinha feito, na casa de que o SENHOR dissera a Davi e a Salomão, seu filho: Nesta casa e em Jerusalém, que escolhi de todas as tribos de Israel, porei o meu nome para sempre.

8 And never again will I send the feet of Israel wandering from the land which I gave to their fathers; if only they will take care to do all my orders, and keep all the law which my servant Moses gave them.
8 E mais não farei mover o pé de Israel desta terra que tenho dado a seus pais, contanto somente que tenham cuidado de fazer conforme tudo o que lhes tenho ordenado e conforme toda a Lei que Moisés, meu servo, lhes ordenou.

9 But they did not give ear; and Manasseh made them do more evil than those nations did, whom the Lord gave up to destruction before the children of Israel.
9 Porém não ouviram; porque Manassés de tal modo os fez errar, que fizeram pior do que as nações que o SENHOR tinha destruído de diante dos filhos de Israel.

10 And the Lord said, by his servants the prophets,
10 Então, o SENHOR falou pelo ministério de seus servos, os profetas, dizendo:

11 Because Manasseh, king of Judah, has done these disgusting things, doing more evil than all the Amorites before him, and making Judah do evil with his false gods,
11 Porquanto Manassés, rei de Judá, fez estas abominações, fazendo pior do que quanto fizeram os amorreus que antes dele foram e até também a Judá fez pecar com os seus ídolos,

12 For this cause, says the Lord, the God of Israel, I will send such evil on Jerusalem and Judah that the ears of all to whom the news comes will be burning.
12 por isso, assim diz o SENHOR, Deus de Israel: Eis que hei de trazer tal mal sobre Jerusalém e Judá, que qualquer que ouvir, lhe ficarão retinindo ambas as orelhas.

13 And over Jerusalem will be stretched the line of Samaria and the weight of Ahab; Jerusalem will be washed clean as a plate is washed, and turned over on its face.
13 E estenderei sobre Jerusalém o cordel de Samaria e o prumo da casa de Acabe; e limparei Jerusalém, como quem limpa a escudela a limpa e a vira sobre a sua face.

14 And I will put away from me the rest of my heritage, and give them up into the hands of their haters, who will take their property and their goods for themselves;
14 E desampararei o resto da minha herança, entregá-los-ei na mão de seus inimigos; e far-se-ão roubo e despojo para todos os seus inimigos.

15 Because they have done evil in my eyes, moving me to wrath, from the day when their fathers came out of Egypt till this day.
15 Porquanto fizeram o que era mal aos meus olhos e me provocaram à ira, desde o dia em que seus pais saíram do Egito até hoje.

16 More than this, Manasseh took the lives of upright men, till Jerusalem from one end to the other was full of blood; in addition to his sin in making Judah do evil in the eyes of the Lord.
16 De mais disso, também Manassés derramou muitíssimo sangue inocente, até que encheu a Jerusalém de um ao outro extremo, afora o seu pecado, com que fez pecar a Judá, fazendo o que era mal aos olhos do SENHOR.

17 Now the rest of the acts of Manasseh, and all he did, and his sins, are they not recorded in the book of the history of the kings of Judah?
17 Quanto ao mais dos atos de Manassés, e a tudo quanto fez mais, e ao seu pecado, que pecou, porventura, não estão escritos no livro das Crônicas dos Reis de Judá?

18 So Manasseh went to rest with his fathers, and was put into the earth in the garden of his house, in the garden of Uzza; and Amon his son became king in his place.
18 E Manassés dormiu com seus pais e foi sepultado no jardim da sua casa, no jardim de Uzá; e Amom, seu filho, reinou em seu lugar.

19 Amon was twenty-two years old when he became king, ruling in Jerusalem for two years; his mother’s name was Meshullemeth, the daughter of Haruz of Jotbah.
19 Tinha Amom vinte e dois anos de idade quando começou a reinar e dois anos reinou em Jerusalém; e era o nome de sua mãe Mesulemete, filha de Haruz, de Jotbá.

20 He did evil in the eyes of the Lord, as Manasseh his father had done.
20 E fez o que era mal aos olhos do SENHOR, como fizera Manassés, seu pai.

21 He went in all the ways of his father, being a servant and worshipper of the false gods to which his father had been a servant;
21 Porque andou em todo o caminho em que andara seu pai; e serviu os ídolos, a que seu pai tinha servido, e se inclinou diante deles.

22 Turning away from the Lord, the God of his fathers, and not walking in his ways.
22 Assim, deixou o SENHOR, Deus de seus pais, e não andou no caminho do SENHOR.

23 And the servants of Amon made a secret design against him, and put the king to death in his house.
23 E os servos de Amom conspiraram contra ele e mataram o rei em sua casa.

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

25 Now the rest of the acts which Amon did, are they not recorded in the book of the history of the kings of Judah?
25 Quanto ao mais dos atos de Amom, e a tudo quanto fez, porventura, não estão escritos no livro das Crônicas dos Reis de Judá?

26 He was put in his last resting-place in the garden of Uzza, and Josiah his son became king in his place.
26 E o sepultaram na sua sepultura, no jardim de Uzá; e Josias, seu filho, reinou em seu lugar.

2 Kings 22

1 Josiah was eight years old when he became king; and he was ruling in Jerusalem for thirty-one years; his mother’s name was Jedidah, daughter of Adaiah of Bozkath.
1 Tinha Josias oito anos de idade quando começou a reinar e reinou trinta e um anos em Jerusalém; e era o nome de sua mãe, Jedida, filha de Adaías, de Bozcate.

2 He did what was right in the eyes of the Lord, walking in the ways of David his father, without turning to the right hand or to the left.
2 E fez o que era reto aos olhos do SENHOR; e andou em todo o caminho de Davi, seu pai, e não se apartou dele nem para a direita nem para a esquerda.

3 Now in the eighteenth year after he became king, Josiah sent Shaphan, the son of Azaliah, the son of Meshullam, the scribe, to the house of the Lord, saying to him,
3 Sucedeu, pois, que, no ano décimo oitavo do rei Josias, o rei mandou o escrivão Safã, filho de Azalias, filho de Mesulão, à Casa do SENHOR, dizendo:

4 Go up to Hilkiah, the chief priest, and let him give out the money which is taken into the house of the Lord, which the keepers of the door have got together from the people;
4 Sobe a Hilquias, o sumo sacerdote, para que tome o dinheiro que se trouxe à Casa do SENHOR, o qual os guardas do umbral da porta ajuntaram do povo.

5 And let it be given to the overseers of the work of the Lord’s house, to give to the workmen who are making good what was damaged in the house of the Lord;
5 E que o dêem na mão dos que têm o cargo da obra e estão encarregados da Casa do SENHOR; para que o dêem àqueles que fazem a obra que há na Casa do SENHOR, para repararem as fendas da casa:

6 To the woodworkers and the builders and the stone-cutters; and for getting wood and cut stones for the building up of the house.
6 aos carpinteiros, e aos edificadores, e aos pedreiros; e para comprar madeira e pedras lavradas, para repararem a casa.

7 They did not have to give any account of the money which was handed to them, for they made use of it with good faith.
7 Porém com eles se não fez conta do dinheiro que se lhes entregara nas suas mãos, porquanto procediam com fidelidade.

8 Then Hilkiah, the chief priest, said to Shaphan the scribe, I have made discovery of the book of the law in the house of the Lord. So Hilkiah gave it to Shaphan;
8 Então, disse o sumo sacerdote Hilquias ao escrivão Safã: Achei o livro da Lei na Casa do SENHOR. E Hilquias deu o livro a Safã, e ele o leu.

9 Then, after reading it, Shaphan the scribe went in to the king and gave him an account of what had been done, saying, Your servants have given out the money which was in the house, and have given it to the overseers of the work of the house of the Lord.
9 Então, o escrivão Safã veio ao rei, e referiu ao rei a resposta, e disse: Teus servos ajuntaram o dinheiro que se achou na casa e o entregaram na mão dos que têm o cargo da obra, que estão encarregados da Casa do SENHOR.

10 Then Shaphan the scribe said to the king, Hilkiah the priest has given me a book; and he was reading it before the king.
10 Também Safã, o escrivão, fez saber ao rei dizendo: O sacerdote Hilquias me deu um livro. E Safã o leu diante do rei.

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

12 And he gave orders to Hilkiah the priest, and Ahikam, the son of Shaphan, and Achbor, the son of Micaiah, and Shaphan the scribe, and Asaiah the king’s servant, saying,
12 E o rei mandou a Hilquias, o sacerdote, e a Aicão, filho de Safã, e a Acbor, filho de Micaías, e a Safã, o escrivão, e a Asaías, o servo do rei, dizendo:

13 Go and get directions from the Lord for me and for the people and for all Judah, about the words of this book which has come to light; for great is the wrath of the Lord which is burning against us, because our fathers have not given ear to the words of this book, to do all the things which are recorded in it.
13 Ide e consultai ao SENHOR por mim, e pelo povo, e por todo o Judá, acerca das palavras deste livro que se achou; porque grande é o furor do SENHOR que se acendeu contra nós, porquanto nossos pais não deram ouvidos às palavras deste livro, para fazerem conforme tudo quanto de nós está escrito.

14 So Hilkiah the priest, and Ahikam and Achbor and Shaphan and Asaiah, went to Huldah the woman prophet, the wife of Shallum, the son of Tikvah, the son of Harhas, keeper of the robes, (now she was living in Jerusalem, in the second part of the town;) and they had talk with her.
14 Então, o sacerdote Hilquias, e Aicão, e Acbor, e Safã, e Asaías foram à profetisa Hulda, mulher de Salum, filho de Ticva, o filho de Harás, o guarda das vestiduras (e ela habitava em Jerusalém, na segunda parte) e lhe falaram.

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

16 These are the words of the Lord: See, I will send evil on this place and on its people, even everything which the king of Judah has been reading in the book;
16 Assim diz o SENHOR: Eis que trarei mal sobre este lugar e sobre os seus moradores, a saber, todas as palavras do livro que leu o rei de Judá.

17 Because they have given me up, burning offerings to other gods and moving me to wrath by all the work of their hands; so my wrath will be on fire against this place, and will not be put out.
17 Porquanto me deixaram e queimaram incenso a outros deuses, para me provocarem à ira por todas as obras das suas mãos, o meu furor se acendeu contra este lugar e não se apagará.

18 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: As to the words which have come to your ears,
18 Porém ao rei de Judá, que vos enviou a consultar ao SENHOR, assim lhe direis: Assim diz o SENHOR, o Deus de Israel, acerca das palavras que ouviste:

19 Because your heart was soft, and you made yourself low before me, when you had word of what I said against this place and its people, that they would become a waste and a curse, and you gave signs of grief, weeping before me: truly, I have given ear to you, says the Lord.
19 Porquanto o teu coração se enterneceu, e te humilhaste perante o SENHOR, quando ouviste o que falei contra este lugar e contra os seus moradores, que seriam para assolação e para maldição, e rasgaste as tuas vestes, e choraste perante mim, também eu te ouvi, diz o SENHOR.

20 For this cause 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. So they took this news back to the king.
20 Pelo que eis que eu te ajuntarei a teus pais, e tu serás ajuntado em paz à tua sepultura, e os teus olhos não verão todo o mal que hei de trazer sobre este lugar. Então, tornaram a trazer ao rei a resposta.

2 Kings 23

1 Then the king sent and got together all the responsible men of Judah and of Jerusalem.
1 Então, o rei ordenou, e todos os anciãos de Judá e de Jerusalém se ajuntaram a ele.

2 And the king went up to the house of the Lord, with all the men of Judah and all the people of Jerusalem, and the priests and the prophets 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.
2 E o rei subiu à Casa do SENHOR, e com ele todos os homens de Judá, e todos os moradores de Jerusalém, e os sacerdotes, e os profetas, e todo o povo, desde o menor até ao maior; e leu aos ouvidos deles todas as palavras do livro do concerto, que se achou na Casa do SENHOR.

3 And the king took his place by the pillar, and made an agreement before the Lord, to go in the way of the Lord, and keep his orders and his decisions and his rules with all his heart and all his soul, and to keep the words of the agreement recorded in the book; and all the people gave their word to keep the agreement.
3 E o rei se pôs em pé junto à coluna e fez o concerto perante o SENHOR, para andarem com o SENHOR, e guardarem os seus mandamentos, e os seus testemunhos, e os seus estatutos, com todo o coração e com toda a alma, confirmando as palavras deste concerto, que estavam escritas naquele livro; e todo o povo esteve por este concerto.

4 Then the king gave orders to Hilkiah, the chief priest, and to the priests of the second order, and to the keepers of the door, to take out of the house of the Lord all the vessels made for Baal and for the Asherah and for all the stars of heaven; and he had them burned outside Jerusalem in the fields of Kidron, and took the dust of them to Beth-el.
4 E o rei mandou ao sumo sacerdote Hilquias, e aos sacerdotes da segunda ordem, e aos guardas do umbral da porta que se tirassem do templo do SENHOR todos os utensílios que se tinham feito para Baal, e para o bosque, e para todo o exército dos céus; e os queimou fora de Jerusalém, nos campos de Cedrom, e levou as cinzas deles a Betel.

5 And he put an end to the false priests, who had been put in their positions by the kings of Judah to see to the burning of offerings in the high places in the towns of Judah and the outskirts of Jerusalem, and all those who made offerings to Baal and to the sun and the moon and the twelve signs and all the stars of heaven.
5 Também destituiu os sacerdotes que os reis de Judá estabeleceram para incensarem sobre os altos nas cidades de Judá e ao redor de Jerusalém, como também os que incensavam a Baal, ao sol, e à lua, e aos mais planetas, e a todo o exército dos céus.

6 And he took the Asherah from the house of the Lord, outside Jerusalem to the stream Kidron, burning it by the stream and crushing it to dust, and he put the dust on the place where the bodies of the common people were put to rest.
6 Também tirou da Casa do SENHOR o ídolo do bosque para fora de Jerusalém até o ribeiro de Cedrom, e o queimou junto ao ribeiro de Cedrom, e o desfez em pó, e lançou o seu pó sobre as sepulturas dos filhos do povo.

7 And he had the houses pulled down of those who were used for sex purposes in the house of the Lord, where women were making robes for the Asherah.
7 Também derribou as casas dos prostitutos cultuais que estavam na Casa do SENHOR, em que as mulheres teciam casinhas para o ídolo do bosque.

8 And he made all the priests from the towns of Judah come into Jerusalem, and he made unclean the high places where the priests had been burning offerings, from Geba to Beer-sheba; and he had the high places of the evil spirits pulled down which were by the doorway of Joshua, the ruler of the town, on the left side of the way into the town.
8 E a todos os sacerdotes trouxe das cidades de Judá, e profanou os altos em que os sacerdotes incensavam, desde Geba até Berseba, e derribou os altos das portas, que estavam à entrada da porta de Josué, o chefe da cidade, e que estavam à mão esquerda daquele que entrava pela porta da cidade.

9 Still the priests of the high places never came up to the altar of the Lord in Jerusalem; but they took their food of unleavened bread among their brothers.
9 Mas os sacerdotes dos altos não sacrificavam sobre o altar do SENHOR em Jerusalém; porém comiam pães asmos no meio de seus irmãos.

10 And Topheth, in the valley of the sons of Hinnom, he made unclean, so that no man might make his son or his daughter go through the fire to Molech.
10 Também profanou a Tofete, que está no vale dos filhos de Hinom, para que ninguém fizesse passar a seu filho ou sua filha pelo fogo a Moloque.

11 And he took away the horses which the kings of Judah had given to the sun, at the way into the house of the Lord, by the room of Nathan-melech, the unsexed servant, which was in the outer part of the building, and the carriages of the sun he put on fire.
11 Também tirou os cavalos que os reis de Judá tinham destinado ao sol, à entrada da Casa do SENHOR, perto da câmara de Natã-Meleque, o eunuco, que estava no recinto; e os carros do sol queimou a fogo.

12 And the altars on the roof of the high room of Ahaz, which the kings of Judah had made, and the altars which Manasseh had made in the two outer squares of the house of the Lord, were pulled down and crushed to bits, and the dust of them was put into the stream Kidron.
12 Também o rei derribou os altares que estavam sobre o terraço do cenáculo de Acaz, os quais fizeram os reis de Judá; como também o rei derribou os altares que fizera Manassés nos dois átrios da Casa do SENHOR; e, esmigalhados, os tirou dali e lançou o pó deles no ribeiro de Cedrom.

13 And the high places before Jerusalem, on the south side of the mountain of destruction, which Solomon, king of Israel, had made for Ashtoreth, the disgusting god of the Zidonians, and for Chemosh, the disgusting god of Moab, and for Milcom, the disgusting god of the children of Ammon, the king made unclean.
13 O rei profanou também os altos que estavam defronte de Jerusalém, à mão direita do monte de Masite, os quais edificara Salomão, rei de Israel, a Astarote, a abominação dos sidônios, e a Quemos, a abominação dos moabitas, e a Milcom, a abominação dos filhos de Amom.

14 The stone pillars were broken to bits and the wood pillars cut down, and the places where they had been were made full of the bones of the dead.
14 Semelhantemente quebrou as estátuas, e cortou os bosques, e encheu o seu lugar com ossos de homens.

15 And the altar at Beth-el, and the high place put up by Jeroboam, the son of Nebat, who made Israel do evil, that altar and that high place were pulled down; and the high place was burned and crushed to dust and the Asherah was burned.
15 E também o altar que estava em Betel e o alto que fez Jeroboão, filho de Nebate, que tinha feito pecar a Israel, juntamente com aquele altar, também o alto derribou; queimando o alto, em pó o desfez e queimou o ídolo do bosque.

16 Then Josiah, turning round, saw on the mountain the places of the dead, and he sent and had the bones taken out of their places and burned on the altar, so making it unclean, as the Lord had said by the man of God when Jeroboam was in his place by the altar on that feast-day. And he, turning his eyes to the resting-place of the man of God who had given word of these things, said:
16 E, virando-se Josias, viu as sepulturas que estavam ali no monte, e enviou, e tomou os ossos das sepulturas, e os queimou sobre aquele altar, e assim o profanou, conforme a palavra do SENHOR, que apregoara o homem de Deus, quando apregoou estas palavras.

17 What is that headstone I see over there? And the men of the town said to him, It is the resting-place of the man of God who came from Judah and gave word of all these things which you have done to the altar of Beth-el.
17 Então, disse: Que é este monumento que vejo? E os homens da cidade lhe disseram: É a sepultura do homem de Deus que veio de Judá, e apregoou estas coisas que fizeste contra este altar de Betel.

18 So he said, Let him be; let not his bones be moved. So they let his bones be with the bones of the prophet who came from Samaria.
18 E disse: Deixai-o estar; ninguém mexa nos seus ossos. Assim, deixaram estar os seus ossos com os ossos do profeta que viera de Samaria.

19 Then Josiah took away all the houses of the high places in the towns of Samaria, which the kings of Israel had put up, moving the Lord to wrath, and he did with them as he had done in Beth-el.
19 De mais disso, também Josias tirou todas as casas dos altos que havia nas cidades de Samaria, e que os reis de Israel tinham feito para provocarem o Senhor à ira; e lhes fez conforme todos os atos que tinha praticado em Betel.

20 And all the priests of the high places there he put to death on the altars, burning the bones of the dead on them; and then he went back to Jerusalem.
20 E sacrificou todos os sacerdotes dos altos, que havia ali, sobre os altares, e queimou ossos de homens sobre eles; depois, voltou a Jerusalém.

21 And the king gave orders to all the people, saying, Keep the Passover to the Lord your God, as it says in this book of the law.
21 E o rei deu ordem a todo o povo, dizendo: Celebrai a Páscoa ao SENHOR, vosso Deus, como está escrito no livro do concerto.

22 Truly, such a Passover had not been kept in all the days of the judges of Israel or of the kings of Israel or the kings of Judah;
22 Porque nunca se celebrou tal Páscoa como esta desde os dias dos juízes que julgaram a Israel, nem em todos os dias dos reis de Israel, nem tampouco dos reis de Judá.

23 In the eighteenth year of the rule of King Josiah this Passover was kept to the Lord in Jerusalem.
23 Porém, no ano décimo oitavo do rei Josias, esta Páscoa se celebrou ao SENHOR, em Jerusalém.

24 And all those who had control of spirits, and the wonder-workers, and the images, and the false gods, and all the disgusting things which were seen in the land of Judah and in Jerusalem, Josiah put away, so that he might give effect to the words of the agreement recorded in the book which Hilkiah the priest made discovery of in the house of the Lord.
24 E também os adivinhos, e os feiticeiros, e os terafins, e os ídolos, e todas as abominações que se viam na terra de Judá e em Jerusalém, os extirpou Josias, para confirmar as palavras da lei, que estavam escritas no livro que o sacerdote Hilquias achara na Casa do SENHOR.

25 Never before had there been a king like him, turning to the Lord with all his heart and with all his soul and with all his power, as the law of Moses says; and after him there was no king like him.
25 E antes dele não houve rei semelhante, que se convertesse ao SENHOR com todo o seu coração, e com toda a sua alma, e com todas as suas forças, conforme toda a Lei de Moisés; e, depois dele, nunca se levantou outro tal.

26 But still the heat of the Lord’s wrath was not turned back from Judah, because of all Manasseh had done in moving him to wrath.
26 Todavia, o SENHOR se não demoveu do ardor da sua grande ira, ira com que ardia contra Judá, por todas as provocações com que Manassés o tinha provocado.

27 And the Lord said, I will send Judah away from before my face, as I have sent Israel; I will have nothing more to do with this town, which I had made mine, even Jerusalem, and the holy house of which I said, My name will be there.
27 E disse o SENHOR: Também a Judá hei de tirar de diante da minha face, como tirei a Israel, e rejeitarei esta cidade de Jerusalém que elegi, como também a casa de que disse: Estará ali o meu nome.

28 Now the rest of the acts of Josiah, and all he did, are they not recorded in the book of the history of the kings of Judah?
28 Ora, o mais dos atos de Josias e tudo quanto fez, porventura, não estão escritos no livro das Crônicas dos Reis de Judá?

29 In his days, Pharaoh-necoh, king of Egypt, sent his armies against the king of Assyria to the river Euphrates; and King Josiah went out against him; and he put him to death at Megiddo, when he had seen him.
29 Nos seus dias, subiu Faraó-Neco, rei do Egito, contra o rei da Assíria, ao rio Eufrates; e o rei Josias lhe foi ao encontro; e, vendo-o ele, o matou em Megido.

30 And his servants took his body in a carriage from Megiddo to Jerusalem, and put him into the earth there. And the people of the land took Jehoahaz, the son of Josiah, and put the holy oil on him and made him king in place of his father.
30 E seus servos o levaram morto de Megido, e o trouxeram a Jerusalém, e o sepultaram na sua sepultura; e o povo da terra tomou a Joacaz, filho de Josias, e o ungiram, e o fizeram rei em lugar de seu pai.

31 Jehoahaz was twenty-three years old when he became king, ruling in Jerusalem for three months; his mother’s name was Hamutal, the daughter of Jeremiah of Libnah.
31 Tinha Joacaz vinte e três anos de idade quando começou a reinar e três meses reinou em Jerusalém; e era o nome de sua mãe Hamutal, filha de Jeremias, de Libna.

32 He did evil in the eyes of the Lord, as his fathers had done.
32 E fez o que era mal aos olhos do SENHOR, conforme tudo o que fizeram seus pais.

33 And Pharaoh-necoh put him in chains at Riblah in the land of Hamath, so that he might not be king in Jerusalem; and took from the land a tax of a hundred talents of silver and a talent of gold.
33 Porém Faraó-Neco o mandou prender em Ribla, em terra de Hamate, para que não reinasse em Jerusalém; e à terra impôs a pena de cem talentos de prata e um talento de ouro.

34 Then Pharaoh-necoh made Eliakim, the son of Josiah, king in place of Josiah his father, changing his name to Jehoiakim; but Jehoahaz he took away to Egypt, where he was till his death.
34 Também Faraó-Neco estabeleceu rei a Eliaquim, filho de Josias, em lugar de Josias, seu pai, e lhe mudou o nome em Jeoaquim; porém a Joacaz tomou consigo, e veio ao Egito e morreu ali.

35 And Jehoiakim gave the silver and gold to Pharaoh, taxing the land by his orders to get the money; the people of the land had to give silver and gold, everyone as he was taxed, to make the payment to Pharaoh-necoh.
35 E Jeoaquim deu aquela prata e aquele ouro a Faraó; porém fintou a terra, para dar esse dinheiro conforme o mandado de Faraó; a cada um, segundo a sua avaliação, demandou a prata e o ouro do povo da terra, para o dar a Faraó-Neco.

36 Jehoiakim was twenty-five years old when he became king; he was ruling in Jerusalem for eleven years; his mother’s name was Zebidah, the daughter of Pedaiah of Rumah.
36 Tinha Jeoaquim vinte e cinco anos de idade quando começou a reinar e reinou onze anos em Jerusalém; e era o nome de sua mãe Zebida, filha de Pedaías, de Ruma.

37 He did evil in the eyes of the Lord as his fathers had done.
37 E fez o que era mal aos olhos do SENHOR, conforme tudo quanto fizeram seus pais.

2 Kings 24

1 In his days, Nebuchadnezzar, king of Babylon, came up and Jehoiakim was his servant for three years; then he took up arms against him.
1 Nos dias de Jeoaquim, subiu Nabucodonosor, rei de Babilônia, contra ele, e Jeoaquim ficou três anos seu servo; depois, se virou e se revoltou contra ele.

2 And the Lord sent against him bands of the Chaldaeans and of the Edomites and of the Moabites and of the children of Ammon; sending them against Judah for its destruction, as he had said by his servants the prophets.
2 E Deus enviou contra Jeoaquim as tropas dos caldeus, e as tropas dos siros, e as tropas dos moabitas, e as tropas dos filhos de Amom; e as enviou contra Judá, para o destruir, conforme a palavra que o SENHOR falara pelo ministério de seus servos, os profetas.

3 Only by the word of the Lord did this fate come on Judah, to take them away from before his face; because of the sins of Manasseh and all the evil he did;
3 E, na verdade, conforme o mandado do SENHOR, assim sucedeu a Judá, que o tirou de diante da sua face, por causa dos pecados de Manassés, conforme tudo quanto fizera,

4 And because of the death of those who had done no wrong, for he made Jerusalem full of the blood of the upright; and the Lord had no forgiveness for it.
4 como também por causa do sangue inocente que derramou, enchendo a Jerusalém de sangue inocente; por isso, o SENHOR não o quis perdoar.

5 Now the rest of the acts of Jehoiakim, and all he did, are they not recorded in the book of the history of the kings of Judah?
5 Ora, o mais dos atos de Jeoaquim e tudo quanto fez, porventura, não estão escritos no livro das Crônicas dos Reis de Judá?

6 So Jehoiakim went to rest with his fathers; and Jehoiachin his son became king in his place.
6 E Jeoaquim dormiu com seus pais; e Joaquim, seu filho, reinou em seu lugar.

7 And the king of Egypt did not come out of his land again, for the king of Babylon had taken all his country, from the stream of Egypt to the river Euphrates.
7 E o rei do Egito nunca mais saiu da sua terra; porque o rei de Babilônia tomou tudo quanto era do rei do Egito, desde o rio do Egito até ao rio Eufrates.

8 Jehoiachin was eighteen years old when he became king, he was ruling in Jerusalem for three months, and his mother’s name was Nehushta, the daughter of Elnathan of Jerusalem.
8 Tinha Joaquim dezoito anos de idade quando começou a reinar e reinou três meses em Jerusalém; e era o nome de sua mãe Neústa, filha de Elnatã, de Jerusalém.

9 He did evil in the eyes of the Lord, as his father had done.
9 E fez o que era mal aos olhos do SENHOR, conforme tudo quanto fizera seu pai.

10 At that time the armies of Nebuchadnezzar came up to Jerusalem and the town was shut in on every side.
10 Naquele tempo, subiram os servos de Nabucodonosor, rei de Babilônia, a Jerusalém, e a cidade foi cercada.

11 And Nebuchadnezzar, king of Babylon, came there, while his servants were shutting in the town;
11 Também veio Nabucodonosor, rei de Babilônia, contra a cidade, quando já os seus servos a estavam cercando.

12 Then Jehoiachin, king of Judah, went out to the king of Babylon, with his mother and his servants and his chiefs and his unsexed servants; and in the eighth year of his rule the king of Babylon took him.
12 Então, saiu Joaquim, rei de Judá, ao rei de Babilônia, ele, e sua mãe, e seus servos, e seus príncipes, e seus eunucos; e o rei de Babilônia o levou preso, no ano oitavo de seu reinado.

13 And he took away all the stored wealth of the Lord’s house, and the goods from the king’s store-house, cutting up all the gold vessels which Solomon, king of Israel, had made in the house of the Lord, as the Lord had said.
13 E tirou dali todos os tesouros da Casa do SENHOR e os tesouros da casa do rei; e fendeu todos os utensílios de ouro que fizera Salomão, rei de Israel, no templo do SENHOR, como o SENHOR tinha dito.

14 And he took away all the people of Jerusalem and all the chiefs and all the men of war, ten thousand prisoners; and all the expert workmen and the metal-workers; only the poorest sort of the people of the land were not taken away.
14 E transportou a toda a Jerusalém, como também todos os príncipes, e todos os homens valorosos, dez mil presos, e todos os carpinteiros e ferreiros; ninguém ficou, senão o povo pobre da terra.

15 He took Jehoiachin a prisoner to Babylon, with his mother and his wives and his unsexed servants and the great men of the land; he took them all as prisoners from Jerusalem to Babylon.
15 Assim, transportou Joaquim para a Babilônia, como também a mãe do rei, e as mulheres do rei, e os seus eunucos, e os poderosos da terra levou presos de Jerusalém a Babilônia.

16 And all the men of war, seven thousand of them, and a thousand expert workmen and metal-workers, all of them strong and able to take up arms, the king of Babylon took away as prisoners into Babylon.
16 E todos os homens, valentes, até sete mil, e carpinteiros, e ferreiros, até mil, todos eles destros na guerra, a estes o rei de Babilônia levou presos para Babilônia.

17 And the king of Babylon made Mattaniah, his father’s brother, king in place of Jehoiachin, changing his name to Zedekiah.
17 E o rei de Babilônia estabeleceu rei, em lugar de Joaquim, ao tio deste, Matanias, e lhe mudou o nome para Zedequias.

18 Zedekiah was twenty-one years old when he became king, and he was king in Jerusalem for eleven years; his mother’s name was Hamutal, daughter of Jeremiah of Libnah.
18 Tinha Zedequias vinte e um anos de idade quando começou a reinar e reinou onze anos em Jerusalém; e era o nome de sua mãe Hamutal, filha de Jeremias, de Libna.

19 He did evil in the eyes of the Lord, as Jehoiakim had done.
19 E fez o que era mal aos olhos do SENHOR, conforme tudo quanto fizera Jeoaquim.

20 And because of the wrath of the Lord, this came about in Jerusalem and Judah, till he had sent them all away from before him: and Zedekiah took up arms against the king of Babylon.
20 Pois assim sucedeu por causa da ira do SENHOR contra Jerusalém e contra Judá, até os rejeitar de diante da sua face; e Zedequias se revoltou contra o rei de Babilônia.

2 Kings 25

1 Now in the ninth year of his rule, on the tenth day of the tenth month, Nebuchadnezzar, king of Babylon, came against Jerusalem with all his army and took up his position before it, building earthworks all round the town.
1 E sucedeu que, no nono ano do reinado de Zedequias, no mês décimo, aos dez do mês, Nabucodonosor, rei de Babilônia, veio contra Jerusalém, ele e todo o seu exército, e se acamparam contra ela, e levantaram contra ela tranqueiras em redor.

2 And the town was shut in by their forces till the eleventh year of King Zedekiah.
2 E a cidade foi sitiada até ao undécimo ano do rei Zedequias.

3 Now on the ninth day of the fourth month, the store of food in the town was almost gone, so that there was no food for the people of the land.
3 Aos nove dias do quarto mês, quando a cidade se via apertada da fome, nem havia pão para o povo da terra,

4 So an opening was made in the wall of the town, and all the men of war went in flight by night through the doorway between the two walls which was by the king’s garden; (now the Chaldaeans were stationed round the town:) and the king went by the way of the Arabah.
4 então, a cidade foi arrombada, e todos os homens de guerra fugiram de noite pelo caminho da porta que está entre os dois muros junto ao jardim do rei (porque os caldeus estavam contra a cidade em redor); e o rei se foi pelo caminho da campina.

5 But the Chaldaean army went after the king, and overtook him in the lowlands of Jericho, and all his army went in flight from him in every direction.
5 Porém o exército dos caldeus perseguiu o rei e o alcançou nas campinas de Jericó; e todo o seu exército se dispersou.

6 And they made the king a prisoner and took him up to the king of Babylon at Riblah to be judged.
6 E tomaram o rei e o fizeram subir ao rei de Babilônia, a Ribla; e procederam contra ele.

7 And they put the sons of Zedekiah to death before his eyes, and then they put out his eyes, and chaining him with iron bands, took him to Babylon.
7 E aos filhos de Zedequias degolaram diante dos seus olhos; e vazaram os olhos a Zedequias, e o ataram com duas cadeias de bronze, e o levaram a Babilônia.

8 Now in the fifth month, on the seventh day of the month, in the nineteenth year of Nebuchadnezzar, king of Babylon, Nebuzaradan, the captain of the armed men, a servant of the king of Babylon, came to Jerusalem;
8 E, no quinto mês, no sétimo dia do mês (este era o ano décimo nono de Nabucodonosor, rei de Babilônia), veio Nebuzaradã, capitão da guarda, servo do rei de Babilônia, a Jerusalém.

9 And he had the house of the Lord and the king’s house and all the houses of Jerusalem, even every great house, burned with fire;
9 E queimou a Casa do SENHOR e a casa do rei, como também todas as casas de Jerusalém; todas as casas dos grandes igualmente queimou.

10 And the walls round Jerusalem were broken down by the Chaldaean army which was with the captain.
10 E todo o exército dos caldeus, que estava com o capitão da guarda derribou os muros em redor de Jerusalém.

11 And the rest of the people who were still in the town, and all those who had given themselves up to the king of Babylon, and all the rest of the workmen, Nebuzaradan, the captain of the armed men, took away as prisoners;
11 E o mais do povo que deixaram ficar na cidade, e os rebeldes que se renderam ao rei de Babilônia, e o mais da multidão, Nebuzaradã, o capitão da guarda, levou presos.

12 But he let the poorest of the land go on living there, to take care of the vines and the fields.
12 Porém dos mais pobres da terra deixou o capitão da guarda ficar alguns para vinheiros e para lavradores.

13 And the brass pillars in the house of the Lord, and the wheeled bases, and the great brass water-vessel in the house of the Lord, were broken up by the Chaldaeans, who took the brass to Babylon.
13 Quebraram mais os caldeus as colunas de cobre que estavam na Casa do SENHOR, como também as bases e o mar de cobre que estavam na Casa do SENHOR; e levaram o seu bronze para Babilônia.

14 And the pots and the spades and the scissors for the lights and the spoons, and all the brass vessels used in the Lord’s house, they took away.
14 Também tomaram as caldeiras, e as pás, e os apagadores, e os perfumadores, e todos os utensílios de cobre, com que se ministrava.

15 And the fire-trays and the basins; the gold of the gold vessels and the silver of the silver vessels, were all taken away by the captain of the armed men.
15 Também o capitão da guarda tomou os braseiros e as bacias e tudo mais que era de puro ouro ou de prata.

16 The two pillars, the great water-vessel and the wheeled bases, which Solomon had made for the house of the Lord: the brass of all these vessels was without weight.
16 As duas colunas, o mar e as bases que Salomão fizera para a Casa do SENHOR, o peso do cobre de todos esses utensílios era incalculável.

17 One of the pillars was eighteen cubits high, with a crown of brass on it; the crown was three cubits high, circled with a network and apples all of brass; and the second pillar had the same.
17 A altura de uma coluna era de dezoito côvados, e sobre ela havia um capitel de cobre, e de altura tinha o capitel três côvados; e a rede, e as romãs em roda do capitel, tudo era de cobre; e semelhante a esta era a outra coluna com a rede.

18 And the captain of the armed men took Seraiah, the chief priest, and Zephaniah, the second priest, and the three door-keepers;
18 Também o capitão da guarda tomou a Seraías, primeiro sacerdote, e a Sofonias, segundo sacerdote, e aos três guardas do umbral da porta.

19 And from the town he took the unsexed servant who was over the men of war, and five of the king’s near friends who were in the town, and the scribe of the captain of the army, who was responsible for getting the people of the land together in military order, and sixty men of the people of the land who were in the town.
19 E da cidade tomou a um eunuco, que tinha cargo da gente de guerra, e a cinco homens dos que viam a face do rei, e se acharam na cidade, como também ao escrivão-mor do exército, que registrava o povo da terra para a guerra, e a sessenta homens do povo da terra, que se acharam na cidade.

20 These Nebuzaradan, the captain of the armed men, took with him to the king of Babylon at Riblah.
20 E tomando-os Nebuzaradã, o capitão da guarda, os trouxe ao rei de Babilônia, a Ribla.

21 And the king of Babylon put them to death at Riblah in the land of Hamath. So Judah was taken away prisoner from his land.
21 E o rei de Babilônia os feriu e os matou em Ribla, na terra de Hamate; e Judá foi levado preso para fora da sua terra.

22 As for the people who were still living in the land of Judah, whom Nebuchadnezzar, king of Babylon, did not take away, he made Gedaliah, the son of Ahikam, the son of Shaphan, ruler over them.
22 Porém, quanto ao povo que ficava na terra de Judá, Nabucodonosor, rei de Babilônia, que o deixara ficar, pôs sobre ele por maioral a Gedalias, filho de Aicão, filho de Safã.

23 Now the captains of the armed forces, hearing that the king of Babylon had made Gedaliah ruler, came with their men to Gedaliah at Mizpah; Ishmael, the son of Nethaniah, and Johanan, the son of Kareah, and Seraiah, the son of Tanhumeth the Netophathite, and Jaazaniah, the son of the Maacathite, came with all their men.
23 Ouvindo, pois, os capitães dos exércitos, eles e os seus homens, que o rei de Babilônia pusera a Gedalias por maioral, vieram a Gedalias, a Mispa, a saber, Ismael, filho de Netanias, e Joanã, filho de Careá, e Seraías, filho de Tanumete, o netofatita, e Jazanias, filho do maacatita, eles e os seus homens.

24 Then Gedaliah gave his oath to them and their men, saying, Have no fear because of the servants of the Chaldaeans; go on living in the land under the rule of the king of Babylon, and all will be well.
24 E Gedalias jurou a eles e aos seus homens e lhes disse: Não temais ser servos dos caldeus; ficai na terra e servi ao rei de Babilônia, e bem vos irá.

25 But in the seventh month, Ishmael, the son of Nethaniah, the son of Elishama, of the king’s seed, came with ten men and made an attack on Gedaliah, causing his death and the death of the Jews and the Chaldaeans who were with him at Mizpah.
25 Sucedeu, porém, que, no sétimo mês, veio Ismael, filho de Netanias, o filho de Elisama, da semente real, e dez homens com ele, e feriram Gedalias, e ele morreu, como também os judeus, e os caldeus que estavam com ele em Mispa.

26 Then all the people, small and great, and the captains of the forces, got up and went away to Egypt, for fear of the Chaldaeans.
26 Então, todo o povo se levantou, desde o menor até ao maior, como também os capitães dos exércitos, e vieram ao Egito, porque temiam os caldeus.

27 And in the thirty-seventh year after Jehoiachin, king of Judah, had been taken prisoner, in the twelfth month, on the twenty-seventh day of the month, Evil-merodach, king of Babylon, in the first year of his rule, took Jehoiachin, king of Judah, out of prison;
27 Depois disso, sucedeu que, no ano trinta e sete do cativeiro de Joaquim, rei de Judá, no mês duodécimo, aos vinte e sete do mês, Evil-Merodaque, rei de Babilônia, libertou, no ano em que reinou, a Joaquim, rei de Judá, da casa da prisão.

28 And said kind words to him, and put his seat higher than the seats of the other kings who were with him in Babylon.
28 E lhe falou benignamente e pôs o seu trono acima do trono dos reis que estavam com ele em Babilônia.

29 And his prison clothing was changed, and he was a guest at the king’s table every day for the rest of his life.
29 E lhe mudou as vestes da prisão, e de contínuo Joaquim comia pão na sua presença todos os dias da sua vida.

30 And for his food, the king gave him a regular amount every day for the rest of his life.
30 E, quanto à sua subsistência pelo rei, lhe foi dada subsistência contínua, a porção de cada dia no seu dia, todos os dias da sua vida.
