The temple is repaired. Hazael is bought off from attacking Jerusalem. Joas is slain.
 In the seventh year of Jehu Joas began to reign: and he reigned forty years in Jerusalem. The name of his mother was Sebia of Bersabee.
Anno septimo Jehu regnavit Joas : et quadraginta annis regnavit in Jerusalem. Nomen matris ejus Sebia de Bersabee.
 And Joas did that which was right before the Lord all the days that Joiada the priest taught him.
Fecitque Joas rectum coram Domino cunctis diebus, quibus docuit eum Jojada sacerdos.
 But yet he took not away the high places: for the people still sacrificed and burnt incense in the high places.
Verumtamen excelsa non abstulit : adhuc enim populus immolabat, et adolebat in excelsis incensum.
 And Joas said to the priests: O All the money of the sanctified things, which is brought into the temple of the Lord by those that pass, which is offered for the price of a soul, and which of their own accord, and of their own free heart they bring into the temple of the Lord:
Dixitque Joas ad sacerdotes : Omnem pecuniam sanctorum, quae illata fuerit in templum Domini a praetereuntibus, quae offertur pro pretio animae, et quam sponte et arbitrio cordis sui inferunt in templum Domini :
 Let the priests take it according to their order, and repair the house, wheresoever they shall see any thing that wanteth repairing.
accipiant illam sacerdotes juxta ordinem suum, et instaurent sartatecta domus, si quid necessarium viderint instauratione.
 Now till the three and twentieth year of king Joas, the priests did not make the repairs of the temple.
Igitur usque ad vigesimum tertium annum regis Joas, non instauraverunt sacerdotes sartatecta templi.
 And king Joas called Joiada the high priest and the priests, saying to them: Why do you not repair the temple? Take you therefore money no more according to your order, but restore it for the repairing of the temple.
Vocavitque rex Joas Jojadam pontificem et sacerdotes, dicens eis : Quare sartatecta non instauratis templi? Nolite ergo amplius accipere pecuniam juxta ordinem vestrum, sed ad instaurationem templi reddite eam.
 And the priests were forbidden to take any more money of the people, and to make the repairs of the house.
Prohibitique sunt sacerdotes ultra accipere pecuniam a populo, et instaurare sartatecta domus.
 And Joiada the high priest took a chest and bored a hole in the top, and set it by the altar at the right hand of them that came into the house of the Lord, and the priests that kept the doors put therein all the money that was brought to the temple of the Lord.
Et tulit Jojada pontifex gazophylacium unum, aperuitque foramen desuper, et posuit illud juxta altare ad dexteram ingredientium domum Domini, mittebantque in eo sacerdotes, qui custodiebant ostia, omnem pecuniam, quae deferebatur ad templum Domini.
 And when they saw that there was very much money in the chest, the king's scribe and the high priest came up, and poured it out, and counted the money that was found in the house of the Lord:
Cumque viderent nimiam pecuniam esse in gazophylacio, ascendebat scriba regis, et pontifex, effundebantque et numerabant pecuniam, quae inveniebatur in domo Domini :
 And they gave it out by number and measure into the hands of them that were over the builders of the house of the Lord: and they laid it out to the carpenters, and the masons that wrought in the house of the Lord,
et dabant eam juxta numerum atque mensuram in manu eorum, qui praeerant caementariis domus Domini : qui impendebant eam in fabris lignorum, et in caementariis iis, qui operabantur in domo Domini,
 And made the repairs: and to them that cut stones, and to buy timber, and stones, to be hewed, that the repairs of the house of the Lord might be completely finished, and wheresoever there was need of expenses to uphold the house.
et sartatecta faciebant : et in iis, qui caedebant saxa, et ut emerent ligna, et lapides, qui excidebantur, ita ut impleretur instauratio domus Domini in universis, quae indigebant expensa ad muniendam domum.
 But there were not made of the same money for the temple of the Lord, bowls, or fleshhooks, or censers, or trumpets, or any vessel of gold and silver, of the money that was brought into the temple of the Lord.
Verumtamen non fiebant ex eadem pecunia hydriae templi Domini, et fuscinulae, et thuribula, et tubae, et omne vas aureum et argenteum de pecunia, quae inferebatur in templum Domini.
 For it was given to them that did the work, that the temple of the Lord might be repaired.
Iis enim, qui faciebant opus, dabatur ut instauraretur templum Domini :
 And they reckoned not with the men that received the money to distribute it to the workmen, but they bestowed it faithfully.
et non fiebat ratio iis hominibus, qui accipiebant pecuniam ut distribuerent eam artificibus, sed in fide tractabant eam.
 But the money for trespass, and the money for sins, they brought not into the temple of the Lord, because it was for the priests.
Pecuniam vero pro delicto, et pecuniam pro peccatis non inferebant in templum Domini, quia sacerdotum erat.
 Then Hazael king of Syria went up and fought against Geth, and took it and set his face to go up to Jerusalem.
Tunc ascendit Hazael rex Syriae, et pugnabat contra Geth, cepitque eam : et direxit faciem suam ut ascenderet in Jerusalem.
 Wherefore Joas king of Juda took all the sanctified things, which Josaphat, and Joram, and Ochozias his fathers the kings of Juda had dedicated to holy uses, and which he himself had offered: and all the silver that could be found in the treasures of the temple of the Lord, and in the king's palace: and sent it to Hazael king of Syria, and he went off from Jerusalem.
Quam ob rem tulit Joas rex Juda omnia sanctificata, quae consecraverant Josaphat, et Joram, et Ochozias, patres ejus reges Juda, et quae ipse obtulerat : et universum argentum, quod inveniri potuit in thesauris templi Domini, et in palatio regis : misitque Hazaeli regi Syriae, et recessit ab Jerusalem.
 And the rest of the acts of Joas, and all that he did, are they not written in the book of the words of the days of the kings of Juda?
Reliqua autem sermonum Joas, et universa quae fecit, nonne haec scripta sunt in libro verborum dierum regum Juda?
 And his servants arose, and conspired among themselves, and slew Joas in the house of Mello in the descent of Sella.
Surrexerunt autem servi ejus, et conjuraverunt inter se, percusseruntque Joas in Domo Mello in descensu Sella.
 For Josachar the son of Semaath, and Jozabad the son of Somer his servant struck him, and he died: and they buried him with his fathers in the city of David, and Amasias his son reigned in his stead.
Josachar namque filius Semaath, et Jozabad filius Somer servi ejus, percusserunt eum, et mortuus est : et sepelierunt eum cum patribus suis in civitate David : regnavitque Amasias filius ejus pro eo.
