2Ch 23:1 And in the seventh year Jehoiada strengthened himself, and took the captains of hundreds, Azariah the son of Jeroham, and Ishmael the son of Jehohanan, and Azariah the son of Obed, and Maaseiah the son of Adaiah, and Elishaphat the son of Zichri, into covenant with him. 2 Chr 23:1 Now in the seventh year Jehoiada strengthened himself, and took captains of hundreds: Azariah the son of Jeroham, Ishmael the son of Johanan, Azariah the son of Obed, Maaseiah the son of Adaiah, and Elishaphat the son of Zichri, and they entered into a covenant with him. Ch2 23:1 καὶ ἐν τῷ ἔτει τῷ ἑβδόμῳ ἐκραταίωσεν Ιωδαε καὶ ἔλαβεν τοὺς ἑκατοντάρχους τὸν Αζαριαν υἱὸν Ιωραμ καὶ τὸν Ισμαηλ υἱὸν Ιωαναν καὶ τὸν Αζαριαν υἱὸν Ωβηδ καὶ τὸν Μαασαιαν υἱὸν Αδαια καὶ τὸν Ελισαφαν υἱὸν Ζαχαρια μετ᾽ αὐτοῦ εἰς οἶκον
2Ch 23:2 And they went about in Judah, and gathered the Levites out of all the cities of Judah, and the chief of the fathers of Israel, and they came to Jerusalem. 2 Chr 23:2 They went throughout Judah and gathered the Levites from all the cities of Judah, and the heads of the fathers' households of Israel, and they came to Jerusalem. Ch2 23:2 καὶ ἐκύκλωσαν τὸν Ιουδαν καὶ συνήγαγον τοὺς Λευίτας ἐκ πασῶν τῶν πόλεων Ιουδα καὶ ἄρχοντας πατριῶν τοῦ Ισραηλ καὶ ἦλθον εἰς Ιερουσαλημ
2Ch 23:3 And all the congregation made a covenant with the king in the house of God. And he said unto them, Behold, the king's son shall reign, as the LORD hath said of the sons of David. 2 Chr 23:3 Then all the assembly made a covenant with the king in the house of God. And Jehoiada said to them, "Behold, the king's son shall reign, as the Lord has spoken concerning the sons of David. Ch2 23:3 καὶ διέθεντο πᾶσα ἐκκλησία Ιουδα διαθήκην ἐν οἴκῳ τοῦ θεοῦ μετὰ τοῦ βασιλέως καὶ ἔδειξεν αὐτοῖς τὸν υἱὸν τοῦ βασιλέως καὶ εἶπεν αὐτοῖς ἰδοὺ ὁ υἱὸς τοῦ βασιλέως βασιλευσάτω καθὼς ἐλάλησεν κύριος ἐπὶ τὸν οἶκον Δαυιδ
2Ch 23:4 This is the thing that ye shall do; A third part of you entering on the sabbath, of the priests and of the Levites, shall be porters of the doors; 2 Chr 23:4 This is the thing which you shall do: one third of you, of the priests and Levites who come in on the sabbath, shall be gatekeepers, Ch2 23:4 νῦν ὁ λόγος οὗτος ὃν ποιήσετε τὸ τρίτον ἐξ ὑμῶν εἰσπορευέσθωσαν τὸ σάββατον τῶν ἱερέων καὶ τῶν Λευιτῶν καὶ εἰς τὰς πύλας τῶν εἰσόδων

Ch2 23:5 καὶ τὸ τρίτον ἐν οἴκῳ τοῦ βασιλέως καὶ τὸ τρίτον ἐν τῇ πύλῃ τῇ μέσῃ καὶ πᾶς ὁ λαὸς ἐν αὐλαῖς οἴκου κυρίου

And let all the people keep the charge of the Lord. Ch2 23:6 καὶ μὴ εἰσελθέτω εἰς οἶκον κυρίου ἐὰν μὴ οἱ ἱερεῖς καὶ οἱ Λευῖται καὶ οἱ λειτουργοῦντες τῶν Λευιτῶν αὐτοὶ εἰσελεύσονται ὅτι ἅγιοί εἰσιν καὶ πᾶς ὁ λαὸς φυλασσέτω φυλακὰς κυρίου
2Ch 23:7 And the Levites shall compass the king round about, every man with his weapons in his hand; and whosoever else cometh into the house, he shall be put to death: but be ye with the king when he cometh in, and when he goeth out. 2 Chr 23:7 The Levites will surround the king, each man with his weapons in his hand; and whoever enters the house, let him be killed. Thus be with the king when he comes in and when he goes out." Ch2 23:7 καὶ κυκλώσουσιν οἱ Λευῖται τὸν βασιλέα κύκλῳ ἀνδρὸς σκεῦος ἐν χειρὶ αὐτοῦ καὶ ὁ εἰσπορευόμενος εἰς τὸν οἶκον ἀποθανεῖται καὶ ἔσονται μετὰ τοῦ βασιλέως εἰσπορευομένου καὶ ἐκπορευομένου
2Ch 23:8 So the Levites and all Judah did according to all things that Jehoiada the priest had commanded, and took every man his men that were to come in on the sabbath, with them that were to go out on the sabbath: for Jehoiada the priest dismissed not the courses. 2 Chr 23:8 So the Levites and all Judah did according to all that Jehoiada the priest commanded. And each one of them took his men who were to come in on the sabbath, with those who were to go out on the sabbath, for Jehoiada the priest did not dismiss any of the divisions. Ch2 23:8 καὶ ἐποίησαν οἱ Λευῖται καὶ πᾶς Ιουδα κατὰ πάντα ὅσα ἐνετείλατο Ιωδαε ὁ ἱερεύς καὶ ἔλαβον ἕκαστος τοὺς ἄνδρας αὐτοῦ ἀπ᾽ ἀρχῆς τοῦ σαββάτου ἕως ἐξόδου τοῦ σαββάτου ὅτι οὐ κατέλυσεν Ιωδαε τὰς ἐφημερίας
2Ch 23:9 Moreover Jehoiada the priest delivered to the captains of hundreds spears, and bucklers, and shields, that had been king David's, which were in the house of God. 2 Chr 23:9 Then Jehoiada the priest gave to the captains of hundreds the spears and the large and small shields which had been King David's, which were in the house of God.

2Ch 23:10 And he set all the people, every man having his weapon in his hand, from the right side of the temple to the left side of the temple, along by the altar and the temple, by the king round about. 2 Chr 23:10 He stationed all the people, each man with his weapon in his hand, from the right side of the house to the left side of the house, by the altar and by the house, around the king. Ch2 23:10 καὶ ἔστησεν πάντα τὸν λαόν ἕκαστον ἐν τοῖς ὅπλοις αὐτοῦ ἀπὸ τῆς ὠμίας τοῦ οἴκου τῆς δεξιᾶς ἕως τῆς ὠμίας τῆς ἀριστερᾶς τοῦ θυσιαστηρίου καὶ τοῦ οἴκου ἐπὶ τὸν βασιλέα κύκλῳ
2Ch 23:11 Then they brought out the king's son, and put upon him the crown, and gave him the testimony, and made him king. And Jehoiada and his sons anointed him, and said, God save the king. 2 Chr 23:11 Then they brought out the king's son and put the crown on him, and gave him the testimony and made him king. And Jehoiada and his sons anointed him and said, "Long live the king!" Ch2 23:11 καὶ ἐξήγαγεν τὸν υἱὸν τοῦ βασιλέως καὶ ἔδωκεν ἐπ᾽ αὐτὸν τὸ βασίλειον καὶ τὰ μαρτύρια καὶ ἐβασίλευσαν καὶ ἔχρισαν αὐτὸν Ιωδαε καὶ οἱ υἱοὶ αὐτοῦ καὶ εἶπαν ζήτω ὁ βασιλεύς
2Ch 23:12 Now when Athaliah heard the noise of the people running and praising the king, she came to the people into the house of the LORD: 2 Chr 23:12 When Athaliah heard the noise of the people running and praising the king, she came into the house of the Lord to the people. Ch2 23:12 καὶ ἤκουσεν Γοθολια τὴν φωνὴν τοῦ λαοῦ τῶν τρεχόντων καὶ ἐξομολογουμένων καὶ αἰνούντων τὸν βασιλέα καὶ εἰσῆλθεν πρὸς τὸν βασιλέα εἰς οἶκον κυρίου
2Ch 23:13 And she looked, and, behold, the king stood at his pillar at the entering in, and the princes and the trumpets by the king: and all the people of the land rejoiced, and sounded with trumpets, also the singers with instruments of musick, and such as taught to sing praise. Then Athaliah rent her clothes, and said, Treason, Treason. 2 Chr 23:13 She looked, and behold, the king was standing by his pillar at the entrance, and the captains and the trumpeters were beside the king. And all the people of the land rejoiced and blew trumpets, the singers with their musical instruments leading the praise. Then Athaliah tore her clothes and said, "Treason! Treason!" Ch2 23:13 καὶ εἶδεν καὶ ἰδοὺ ὁ βασιλεὺς ἐπὶ τῆς στάσεως αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐπὶ τῆς εἰσόδου οἱ ἄρχοντες καὶ αἱ σάλπιγγες περὶ τὸν βασιλέα καὶ πᾶς ὁ λαὸς ηὐφράνθη καὶ ἐσάλπισαν ἐν ταῖς σάλπιγξιν καὶ οἱ ᾄδοντες ἐν τοῖς ὀργάνοις ᾠδοὶ καὶ ὑμνοῦντες αἶνον καὶ διέρρηξεν Γοθολια τὴν στολὴν αὐτῆς καὶ ἐβόησεν καὶ εἶπεν ἐπιτιθέμενοι ἐπιτίθεσθε
2Ch 23:14 Then Jehoiada the priest brought out the captains of hundreds that were set over the host, and said unto them, Have her forth of the ranges: and whoso followeth her, let him be slain with the sword. For the priest said, Slay her not in the house of the LORD. 2 Chr 23:14 Jehoiada the priest brought out the captains of hundreds who were appointed over the army and said to them, "Bring her out between the ranks; and whoever follows her, put to death with the sword." For the priest said, "Let her not be put to death in the house of the Lord." Ch2 23:14 καὶ ἐξῆλθεν Ιωδαε ὁ ἱερεύς καὶ ἐνετείλατο Ιωδαε ὁ ἱερεὺς τοῖς ἑκατοντάρχοις καὶ τοῖς ἀρχηγοῖς τῆς δυνάμεως καὶ εἶπεν αὐτοῖς ἐκβάλετε αὐτὴν ἐκτὸς τοῦ οἴκου καὶ εἰσέλθατε ὀπίσω αὐτῆς καὶ ἀποθανέτω μαχαίρᾳ ὅτι εἶπεν ὁ ἱερεύς μὴ ἀποθανέτω ἐν οἴκῳ κυρίου
2Ch 23:15 So they laid hands on her; and when she was come to the entering of the horse gate by the king's house, they slew her there. 2 Chr 23:15 So they seized her, and when she arrived at the entrance of the Horse Gate of the king's house, they put her to death there.

2Ch 23:16 And Jehoiada made a covenant between him, and between all the people, and between the king, that they should be the LORD's people. 2 Chr 23:16 Then Jehoiada made a covenant between himself and all the people and the king, that they would be the Lord's people. Ch2 23:16 καὶ διέθετο Ιωδαε διαθήκην ἀνὰ μέσον αὐτοῦ καὶ τοῦ λαοῦ καὶ τοῦ βασιλέως εἶναι λαὸν τῷ κυρίῳ
2Ch 23:17 Then all the people went to the house of Baal, and brake it down, and brake his altars and his images in pieces, and slew Mattan the priest of Baal before the altars. 2 Chr 23:17 And all the people went to the house of Baal and tore it down, and they broke in pieces his altars and his images, and killed Mattan the priest of Baal before the altars. Ch2 23:17 καὶ εἰσῆλθεν πᾶς ὁ λαὸς τῆς γῆς εἰς οἶκον Βααλ καὶ κατέσπασαν αὐτὸν καὶ τὰ θυσιαστήρια καὶ τὰ εἴδωλα αὐτοῦ ἐλέπτυναν καὶ τὸν Ματθαν ἱερέα τῆς Βααλ ἐθανάτωσαν ἐναντίον τῶν θυσιαστηρίων αὐτοῦ
2Ch 23:18 Also Jehoiada appointed the offices of the house of the LORD by the hand of the priests the Levites, whom David had distributed in the house of the LORD, to offer the burnt offerings of the LORD, as it is written in the law of Moses, with rejoicing and with singing, as it was ordained by David. 2 Chr 23:18 Moreover, Jehoiada placed the offices of the house of the Lord under the authority of the Levitical priests, whom David had assigned over the house of the Lord, to offer the burnt offerings of the Lord, as it is written in the law of Moses"with rejoicing and singing according to the order of David. Ch2 23:18 καὶ ἐνεχείρησεν Ιωδαε ὁ ἱερεὺς τὰ ἔργα οἴκου κυρίου διὰ χειρὸς ἱερέων καὶ Λευιτῶν καὶ ἀνέστησεν τὰς ἐφημερίας τῶν ἱερέων καὶ τῶν Λευιτῶν ἃς διέστειλεν Δαυιδ ἐπὶ τὸν οἶκον κυρίου καὶ ἀνενέγκαι ὁλοκαυτώματα κυρίῳ καθὼς γέγραπται ἐν νόμῳ Μωυσῆ ἐν εὐφροσύνῃ καὶ ἐν ᾠδαῖς διὰ χειρὸς Δαυιδ
2Ch 23:19 And he set the porters at the gates of the house of the LORD, that none which was unclean in any thing should enter in. 2 Chr 23:19 He stationed the gatekeepers of the house of the Lord, so that no one would enter who was in any way unclean. Ch2 23:19 καὶ ἔστησαν οἱ πυλωροὶ ἐπὶ τὰς πύλας οἴκου κυρίου καὶ οὐκ εἰσελεύσεται ἀκάθαρτος εἰς πᾶν πρᾶγμα
2Ch 23:20 And he took the captains of hundreds, and the nobles, and the governors of the people, and all the people of the land, and brought down the king from the house of the LORD: and they came through the high gate into the king's house, and set the king upon the throne of the kingdom. 2 Chr 23:20 He took the captains of hundreds, the nobles, the rulers of the people and all the people of the land, and brought the king down from the house of the Lord, and came through the upper gate to the king's house. And they placed the king upon the royal throne. Ch2 23:20 καὶ ἔλαβεν τοὺς πατριάρχας καὶ τοὺς δυνατοὺς καὶ τοὺς ἄρχοντας τοῦ λαοῦ καὶ πάντα τὸν λαὸν τῆς γῆς καὶ ἀνεβίβασαν τὸν βασιλέα εἰς οἶκον κυρίου καὶ εἰσῆλθεν διὰ τῆς πύλης τῆς ἐσωτέρας εἰς τὸν οἶκον τοῦ βασιλέως καὶ ἐκάθισαν τὸν βασιλέα ἐπὶ τὸν θρόνον τῆς βασιλείας
2Ch 23:21 And all the people of the land rejoiced: and the city was quiet, after that they had slain Athaliah with the sword. 2 Chr 23:21 So all of the people of the land rejoiced and the city was quiet. For they had put Athaliah to death with the sword. Ch2 23:21 καὶ ηὐφράνθη πᾶς ὁ λαὸς τῆς γῆς καὶ ἡ πόλις ἡσύχασεν καὶ τὴν Γοθολιαν ἐθανάτωσαν μαχαίρᾳ
