King of Jerusalem. In his time Hilkiah the priest found a book of the law in the temple and after communicating with the scribe he showed it to the king. The [latter], being reverent and righteous, when it was read to him, rent his garment and purged the temple of God of the abominations and having pillaged these [sc. pagan] idols he also joined the ones in Samaria to Jerusalem; [this was] also when the passover was celebrated, after having been omitted for a long time.
Greek Original:
Ἰωσίας, βασιλεὺς Ἱερουσαλήμ. ἐπὶ τούτου Χελκίας ὁ ἱερεὺς εὗρεν ἐν τῷ ναῷ βιβλίον νόμου καὶ κοινωσάμενος τῷ γραμματεῖ ἐπέδειξε τῷ βασιλεῖ. ὁ δὲ εὐλαβὴς ὢν καὶ δίκαιος, ὡς ἀνεγνώσθη αὐτῷ, περιέρρηξε τὴν ἐσθῆτα τόν τε ναὸν ἐκάθηρε τοῦ θεοῦ ἀπὸ τῶν βδελυγμάτων καὶ τὰ εἰδωλεῖα ἐκπορθήσας ταῦτα καὶ τὰ ἐν Σαμαρείᾳ ἀνέζευξεν εἰς Ἱερουσαλήμ: ὅτε καὶ πάσχα ἤχθη πολλῷ ἐπιλεῖψαν χρόνῳ.
