This is the verse that prophecies Josiah, Every single word and particle in the Hebrew is perfectly represented in the Greek and the order of words is identical, which means the verse as not changes.

This Greek as the word τίκτεται , as a reading of נולד and this is important, this word sets the tense, according too the Greek Lexicon, τίκτεται is 'present tense', this same word is used in Josephus to refer
to past-characters.

The Antiquities of the Jews, 1.146
Heber begat Joktan and Phaleg: he was called Phaleg because he was born(τίκτεται) at the dispersion of the nations to their several countries; for Phaleg among the Hebrews signifies division.

Thus the reading in 1 Kings 13:2 aught to be 'Behold, a child was born unto the house of David'

1 Chronicles 22:9 - δοὺ υἱὸς τίκτεταί σοι : הנה בן נולד לך
