Roboam for his sins is delivered up into the hands of the king of Egypt: who carrieth away all the treasures of the temple.

 1 And when the kingdom of Roboam was strengthened and fortified, he forsook the law of the Lord, and all Israel with him.
Cumque roboratum fuisset regnum Roboam et confortatum, dereliquit legem Domini, et omnis Israel cum eo.

 2 And in the fifth year of the reign of Roboam, Sesac king of Egypt came up against Jerusalem (because they had sinned against the Lord)
Anno autem quinto regni Roboam, ascendit Sesac rex Aegypti in Jerusalem ( quia peccaverant Domino)

 3 With twelve hundred chariots and threescore thousand horsemen: and the people were without number that came with him out of Egypt, to wit, Libyans, and Troglodites, and Ethiopians.
cum mille ducentis curribus, et sexaginta millibus equitum : nec erat numerus vulgi quod venerat cum eo ex Aegypto, Libyes scilicet, et Troglodytae, et Aethiopes.

 4 And he took the strongest cities in Juda, and came to Jerusalem.
Cepitque civitates munitissimas in Juda, et venit usque in Jerusalem.

 5 And Semeias the prophet came to Roboam, and to the princes of Juda, that were gathered together in Jerusalem, fleeing from Sesac, and he said to them: Thus saith the Lord: You have left me, and I have left you in the hand of Sesac.
Semeias autem propheta ingressus est ad Roboam, et principes Juda, qui congregati fuerant in Jerusalem, fugientes Sesac, dixitque ad eos : Haec dicit Dominus : Vos reliquistis me, et ego reliqui vos in manu Sesac.

 6 And the princes of Israel, and the king, being in a consternation, said: The Lord is just.
Consternatique principes Israel et rex dixerunt : Justus est Dominus.

 7 And when the Lord saw that they were humbled, the word of the Lord came to Semeias, saying: Because they are humbled, I will not destroy them, and I will give them a little help, and my wrath shall not fall upon Jerusalem by the hand of Sesac.
Cumque vidisset Dominus, quod humiliati essent, factus est sermo Domini ad Semeiam, dicens : Quia humiliati sunt, non disperdam eos, daboque eis pauxillum auxilii, et non stillabit furor meus super Jerusalem per manum Sesac.

 8 But yet they shall serve him, that they may know the difference between my service, and the service of a kingdom of the earth.
Verumtamen servient ei, ut sciant distantiam servitutis meae, et servitutis regni terrarum.

 9 So Sesac king of Egypt departed from Jerusalem, taking away the treasures of the house of the Lord, and of the king's house, and he took all with him, and the golden shields that Solomon had made,
Recessit itaque Sesac rex Aegypti ab Jerusalem, sublatis thesauris domus Domini, et domus regis : omniaque secum tulit, et clypeos aureos, quos fecerat Salomon,

 10 Instead of which the king made brazen ones, and delivered them to the captains of the shieldbearers, who guarded the entrance of the palace.
pro quibus fecit rex aeneos, et tradidit illos principibus scutariorum, qui custodiebant vestibulum palatii.

 11 And when the king entered into the house of the Lord, the shieldbearers came and took them, and brought them back again to their armoury.
Cumque introiret rex domum Domini, veniebant scutarii, et tollebant eos, iterumque referebant eos ad armamentarium suum.

 12 But yet because they were humbled, the wrath of the Lord turned away from them, and they were not utterly destroyed: for even in Juda there were found good works.
Verumtamen quia humiliati sunt, aversa est ab eis ira Domini, nec deleti sunt penitus : siquidem et in Juda inventa sunt opera bona.

 13 King Roboam therefore was strengthened in Jerusalem, and reigned: he was one and forty years old when he began to reign, and he reigned seventeen years in Jerusalem, the city which the Lord chose out of all the tribes of Israel, to establish his name there: and the name of his mother was Naama an Ammonitess.
Confortatus est ergo rex Roboam in Jerusalem, atque regnavit : quadraginta autem et unius anni erat cum regnare coepisset, et decem et septem annis regnavit in Jerusalem, urbe quam elegit Dominus ut confirmaret nomen suum ibi, de cunctis tribubus Israel : nomen autem matris ejus Naama Ammanitis.

 14 But he did evil, and did not prepare his heart to seek the Lord.
Fecit autem malum, et non praeparavit cor suum ut quaereret Dominum.

 15 Now the acts of Roboam first and last are written in the books of Semeias the prophet, and of Addo the seer, and diligently recorded: and there was war between Roboam and Jeroboam all their days.
Opera vero Roboam prima et novissima scripta sunt in libris Semeiae prophetae, et Addo videntis, et diligenter exposita : pugnaveruntque adversum se Roboam, et Jeroboam cunctis diebus.

 16 And Roboam slept with his fathers, and was buried in the city of David. And Abia his son reigned in his stead.
Et dormivit Roboam cum patribus suis, sepultusque est in civitate David. Et regnavit Abia filius ejus pro eo.
