 And I gathered them together to the river, which runneth down to Ahava, and we stayed there three days: and I sought among the people and among the priests for the sons of Levi, and found none there.
Congregavi autem eos ad fluvium, qui decurrit ad Ahava, et mansimus ibi tribus diebus : quaesivique in populo et in sacerdotibus de filiis Levi, et non inveni ibi.
 So I sent Eliezer, and Ariel, and Semeias, and Elnathan, and Jarib, and another Elnathan, and Nathan, and Zacharias, and Mosollam, chief men: and Joiarib, and Elnathan, wise men.

 And I sent them to Eddo, who is chief in the place of Chasphia, and I put in their mouth the words that they should speak to Eddo, and his brethren the Nathinites in the place of Chasphia, that they should bring us ministers of the house of our God.

 And I proclaimed there a fast by the river Ahava, that we might afflict ourselves before the Lord our God, and might ask of him a right way for us and for our children, and for all our substance.
Et praedicavi ibi jejunium juxta fluvium Ahava ut affligeremur coram Domino Deo nostro, et peteremus ab eo viam rectam nobis et filiis nostris, universaeque substantiae nostrae.
 For I was ashamed to ask the king for aid and for horsemen, to defend us from the enemy in the way: because we had said to the king: The hand of our God is upon all them that seek him in goodness: and his power and strength, and wrath upon all them that forsake him.
Erubui enim petere a rege auxilium et equites, qui defenderent nos ab inimico in via : quia dixeramus regi : Manus Dei nostri est super omnes, qui quaerunt eum in bonitates : et imperium ejus et fortitudo ejus, et furor super omnes, qui derelinquunt eum.

 And I separated twelve of the chief of the priests, Sarabias, and Hasabias, and with them ten of their brethren,

 And I weighed unto them the silver and gold, and the vessels consecrated for the house of our God, which the king and his counsellors, and his princes, and all Israel, that were found had offered.
appendique eis argentum et aurum, et vasa consecrata domus Dei nostri, quae obtulerat rex et consiliatores ejus, et principes ejus, universusque Israel eorum, qui inventi fuerant :
 And I weighed to their hands six hundred and fifty talents of silver, and a hundred vessels of silver, and a hundred talents of gold,
et appendi in manibus eorum argenti talenta sexcenta quinquaginta, et vasa argentea centum, auri centum talenta :
 And twenty cups of gold, of a thousand solids, and two vessels of the best shining brass, beautiful as gold.
et crateres aureos viginti, qui habebant solidos millenos, et vasa aeris fulgentis optimi duo, pulchra, ut aurum.
 And I said to them: You are the holy ones of the Lord, and the vessels are holy, and the silver and gold, that is freely offered to the Lord the God of our fathers.
Et dixi eis : Vos sancti Domini, et vasa sancta, et argentum et aurum, quod sponte oblatum est Domino Deo patrum nostrorum :
 Watch ye and keep them, till you deliver them by weight before the chief of the priests, and of the Levites, and the heads of the families of Israel in Jerusalem, into the treasure of the house of the Lord.
vigilate et custodite, donec appendatis coram principibus sacerdotum, et Levitarum, et ducibus familiarum Israel in Jerusalem, in thesaurum domus Domini.
 And the priests and the Levites received the weight of the silver and gold, and the vessels, to carry them to Jerusalem to the house of our God.
Susceperunt autem sacerdotes et Levitae pondus argenti, et auri, et vasorum, ut deferrent Jerusalem in domum Dei nostri.
 Then we set forward from the river Ahava on the twelfth day of the first month to go to Jerusalem: and the hand of our God was upon us, and delivered us from the hand of the enemy, and of such as lay in wait by the way.
Promovimus ergo a flumine Ahava duodecimo die mensis primi ut pergeremus Jerusalem : et manus Dei nostri fuit super nos, et liberavit nos de manu inimici et insidiatoris in via.
 And we came to Jerusalem, and we stayed there three days.
Et venimus Jerusalem, et mansimus ibi tribus diebus.
 And on the fourth day the silver and the gold, and the vessels were weighed in the house of our God by the hand of Meremoth the son of Urias the priest, and with him was Eleazar the son of Phinees, and with them Jozabad the son of Josue, and Noadaia the son of Benoi, Levites.
Die autem quarta appensum est argentum, et aurum, et vasa in domo Dei nostri per manum Meremoth filii Uriae sacerdotis, et cum eo Eleazar filius Phinees, cumque eis Jozabed filius Josue, et Noadaia filius Bennoi Levitae,
 According to the number and weight of every thing: and all the weight was written at that time.
juxta numerum et pondus omnium : descriptumque est omne pondus in tempore illo.
 Moreover the children of them that had been carried away that were come out of the captivity, offered holocausts to the God of Israel, twelve calves for all the people of Israel, ninety-six rams, seventy-seven lambs, and twelve he goats for sin: all for a holocaust to the Lord.
Sed et qui venerant de captivitate filii transmigrationis, obtulerunt holocautomata Deo Israel, vitulos duodecim pro omni populo Israel, arietes nonaginta sex, agnos septuaginta septem, hircos pro peccato duodecim : omnia in holocaustum Domino.
 And they gave the king's edicts to the lords that were from the king's court, and the governors beyond the river, and they furthered the people and the house of God.
