1 Samuel 20


1  And David1732 fled1272 from Naioth4480 5121 in Ramah,7414 and came935 and said559 before6440 Jonathan,3083 What4100 have I done?6213 what4100 is mine iniquity?5771 and what4100 is my sin2403 before6440 thy father,1 that3588 he seeketh1245 853 my life?5315

2  And he said559 unto him, God forbid;2486 thou shalt not3808 die:4191 behold,2009 my father1 will do6213 nothing3808 1697 either great1419 or176 small,6996 but that he will show3808 1540 it 853 me:241 and why4069 should my father1 hide5641 853 this2088 thing1697 from4480 me? it2063 is not369 so.

3  And David1732 swore7650 moreover,5750 and said,559 Thy father1 certainly knoweth3045 3045 that3588 I have found4672 grace2580 in thine eyes;5869 and he saith,559 Let not408 Jonathan3083 know3045 this,2063 lest6435 he be grieved:6087 but truly199 as the LORD3068 liveth,2416 and as thy soul5315 liveth,2416 there3588 is but a step6587 between996 me and death.4194

4  Then said559 Jonathan3083 unto413 David,1732 Whatsoever4100 thy soul5315 desireth,559 I will even do6213 it for thee.

5  And David1732 said559 unto413 Jonathan,3083 Behold,2009 tomorrow4279 is the new moon,2320 and I595 should not fail to sit3427 3427 with5973 the king4428 at meat:398 but let me go,7971 that I may hide myself5641 in the field7704 unto5704 the third7992 day at even.6153

6  If518 thy father1 at all miss6485 6485 me, then say,559 David1732 earnestly asked7592 7592 leave of4480 me that he might run7323 to Bethlehem1035 his city:5892 for3588 there is a yearly3117 sacrifice2077 there8033 for all3605 the family.4940

7  If518 he say559 thus,3541 It is well;2896 thy servant5650 shall have peace:7965 but if518 he be very wroth,2734 2734 then be sure3045 that3588 evil7451 is determined3615 by4480 5973 him.

8  Therefore thou shalt deal6213 kindly2617 with5921 thy servant;5650 for3588 thou hast brought935 853 thy servant5650 into a covenant1285 of the LORD3068 with5973 thee: notwithstanding, if518 there be3426 in me iniquity,5771 slay4191 me thyself;859 for5704 why4100 shouldest thou bring935 me to thy father?1

9  And Jonathan3083 said,559 Far be it2486 from thee: for3588 if518 I knew certainly3045 3045 that3588 evil7451 were determined3615 by4480 5973 my father1 to come935 upon5921 thee, then would not3808 I tell5046 it thee?

10  Then said559 David1732 to413 Jonathan,3083 Who4310 shall tell5046 me? or176 what4100 if thy father1 answer6030 thee roughly?7186

11  And Jonathan3083 said559 unto413 David,1732 Come,1980 and let us go out3318 into the field.7704 And they went out3318 both8147 of them into the field.7704

12  And Jonathan3083 said559 unto413 David,1732 O LORD3068 God430 of Israel,3478 when3588 I have sounded2713 853 my father1 about tomorrow4279 any time,6256 or the third7992 day, and, behold,2009 if there be good2896 toward413 David,1732 and I then227 send7971 not3808 unto413 thee, and show it thee;1540 853 241

13  The LORD3068 do6213 so3541 and much3541 more3254 to Jonathan:3083 but if3588 it please3190 413 my father1 to do thee 853 evil,7451 then I will show it thee,1540 853 241 and send thee away,7971 that thou mayest go1980 in peace:7965 and the LORD3068 be1961 with5973 thee, as834 he hath been1961 with5973 my father.1

14  And thou shalt not3808 only while518 yet5750 I live2416 show6213 5973 me the kindness2617 of the LORD,3068 that I die4191 not:3808

15  But also thou shalt not3808 cut off3772 853 thy kindness2617 from4480 5973 my house1004 forever:5704 5769 no, not3808 when the LORD3068 hath cut off3772 853 the enemies341 of David1732 every one376 from the face4480 5921 6440 of the earth.127

16  So Jonathan3083 made3772 a covenant with5973 the house1004 of David,1732 saying, Let the LORD3068 even require1245 it at the hand4480 3027 of David's1732 enemies.341

17  And Jonathan3083 caused 853 David1732 to swear7650 again,3254 because he loved160 him: for3588 he loved157 him as he loved160 his own soul.5315

18  Then Jonathan3083 said559 to David, Tomorrow4279 is the new moon:2320 and thou shalt be missed,6485 because3588 thy seat4186 will be empty.6485

19  And when thou hast stayed three days,8027 then thou shalt go down3381 quickly,3966 and come935 to413 the place4725 where834 thou didst hide thyself5641 when8033 3117 the business4639 was in hand, and shalt remain3427 by681 the stone68 Ezel.237

20  And I589 will shoot3384 three7969 arrows2671 on the side6654 thereof, as though I shot7971 at a mark.4307

21  And, behold,2009 I will send7971 853 a lad,5288 saying, Go,1980 find out4672 853 the arrows.2671 If518 I expressly say559 559 unto the lad,5288 Behold,2009 the arrows2671 are on this side4480 2008 of thee, take3947 them; then come935 thou: for3588 there is peace7965 to thee, and no369 hurt;1697 as the LORD3068 liveth.2416

22  But if518 I say559 thus3541 unto the young man,5958 Behold,2009 the arrows2671 are beyond4480 1973 thee; go thy way:1980 for3588 the LORD3068 hath sent thee away.7971

23  And as touching the matter1697 which834 thou859 and I589 have spoken1696 of, behold,2009 the LORD3068 be between996 thee and me forever.5704 5769

24  So David1732 hid himself5641 in the field:7704 and when the new moon2320 was come,1961 the king4428 sat him down3427 to eat398 meat.3899

25  And the king4428 sat3427 upon5921 his seat,4186 as at other times,6471 6471 even upon413 a seat4186 by the wall:7023 and Jonathan3083 arose,6965 and Abner74 sat3427 by Saul's7586 side,4480 6654 and David's1732 place4725 was empty.6485

26  Nevertheless Saul7586 spoke1696 not3808 any thing3972 that1931 day:3117 for3588 he thought,559 Something hath befallen4745 him, he1931 is not1115 clean;2889 surely3588 he is not3808 clean.2889

27  And it came to pass1961 on the morrow,4480 4283 which was the second8145 day of the month,2320 that David's1732 place4725 was empty:6485 and Saul7586 said559 unto413 Jonathan3083 his son,1121 Wherefore4069 cometh935 not3808 the son1121 of Jesse3448 to413 meat,3899 neither1571 yesterday,8543 nor1571 today?3117

28  And Jonathan3083 answered6030 853 Saul,7586 David1732 earnestly asked7592 7592 leave of4480 5973 me to go to5704 Bethlehem:1035

29  And he said,559 Let me go,7971 I pray thee;4994 for3588 our family4940 hath a sacrifice2077 in the city;5892 and my brother,251 he1931 hath commanded6680 me to be there: and now,6258 if518 I have found4672 favor2580 in thine eyes,5869 let me get away,4422 I pray thee,4994 and see7200 853 my brethren.251 Therefore5921 3651 he cometh935 not3808 unto413 the king's4428 table.7979

30  Then Saul's7586 anger639 was kindled2734 against Jonathan,3083 and he said559 unto him, Thou son1121 of the perverse5753 rebellious4780 woman, do not3808 I know3045 that3588 thou859 hast chosen977 the son1121 of Jesse3448 to thine own confusion,1322 and unto the confusion1322 of thy mother's517 nakedness?6172

31  For3588 as long3605 3117 as834 the son1121 of Jesse3448 liveth2416 upon5921 the ground,127 thou859 shalt not3808 be established,3559 nor thy kingdom.4438 Wherefore now6258 send7971 and fetch3947 853 him unto413 me, for3588 he1931 shall surely die.1121 4194

32  And Jonathan3083 answered6030 853 Saul7586 his father,1 and said559 unto413 him, Wherefore4100 shall he be slain?4191 what4100 hath he done?6213

33  And Saul7586 cast2904 853 a javelin2595 at5921 him to smite5221 him: whereby Jonathan3083 knew3045 that3588 it1931 was determined3615 of4480 5973 his father1 to slay4191 853 David.1732

34  So Jonathan3083 arose6965 from4480 5973 the table7979 in fierce2750 anger,639 and did eat398 no3808 meat3899 the second8145 day3117 of the month:2320 for3588 he was grieved6087 for413 David,1732 because3588 his father1 had done him shame.3637

35  And it came to pass1961 in the morning,1242 that Jonathan3083 went out3318 into the field7704 at the time appointed4150 with David,1732 and a little6996 lad5288 with5973 him.

36  And he said559 unto his lad,5288 Run,7323 find out4672 now4994 853 the arrows2671 which834 I595 shoot.3384 And as the lad5288 ran,7323 he1931 shot3384 an arrow2678 beyond5674 him.

37  And when the lad5288 was come935 to5704 the place4725 of the arrow2678 which834 Jonathan3083 had shot,3384 Jonathan3083 cried7121 after310 the lad,5288 and said,559 Is not3808 the arrow2678 beyond4480 1973 thee?

38  And Jonathan3083 cried7121 after310 the lad,5288 Make speed,2363 haste,4120 stay5975 not.408 And Jonathan's3083 lad5288 gathered up3950 853 the arrows,2678 and came935 to413 his master.113

39  But the lad5288 knew3045 not3808 any thing:3972 only389 Jonathan3083 and David1732 knew3045 853 the matter.1697

40  And Jonathan3083 gave5414 853 his artillery3627 unto413 his834 lad,5288 and said559 unto him, Go,1980 carry935 them to the city.5892

41  And as soon as the lad5288 was gone,935 David1732 arose6965 out of a place toward4480 681 the south,5045 and fell5307 on his face639 to the ground,776 and bowed himself7812 three7969 times:6471 and they kissed5401 one376 853 another,7453 and wept1058 one376 with854 another,7453 until5704 David1732 exceeded.1431

42  And Jonathan3083 said559 to David,1732 Go1980 in peace,7965 forasmuch as834 we have sworn7650 both8147 of us587 in the name8034 of the LORD,3068 saying,559 The LORD3068 be1961 between996 me and thee, and between996 my seed2233 and thy seed2233 forever.5704 5769 And he arose6965 and departed:1980 and Jonathan3083 went935 into the city.5892


1 καὶ ἀπέδρα Δαυιδ ἐκ Ναυαθ ἐν Ραμα καὶ ἔρχεται ἐνώπιον Ιωναθαν καὶ εἶπεν τί πεποίηκα καὶ τί τὸ ἀδίκημά μου καὶ τί ἡμάρτηκα ἐνώπιον τοῦ πατρός σου ὅτι ἐπιζητεῖ τὴν ψυχήν μου

2 καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῷ Ιωναθαν μηδαμῶς σοι οὐ μὴ ἀποθάνῃς ἰδοὺ οὐ μὴ ποιήσῃ ὁ πατήρ μου ῥῆμα μέγα ἢ μικρὸν καὶ οὐκ ἀποκαλύψει τὸ ὠτίον μου καὶ τί ὅτι κρύψει ὁ πατήρ μου τὸ ῥῆμα τοῦτο οὐκ ἔστιν τοῦτο

3 καὶ ἀπεκρίθη Δαυιδ τῷ Ιωναθαν καὶ εἶπεν γινώσκων οἶδεν ὁ πατήρ σου ὅτι εὕρηκα χάριν ἐν ὀφθαλμοῖς σου καὶ εἶπεν μὴ γνώτω τοῦτο Ιωναθαν μὴ οὐ βούληται ἀλλὰ ζῇ κύριος καὶ ζῇ ἡ ψυχή σου ὅτι καθὼς εἶπον ἐμπέπλησται ἀνὰ μέσον μου καὶ τοῦ θανάτου

4 καὶ εἶπεν Ιωναθαν πρὸς Δαυιδ τί ἐπιθυμεῖ ἡ ψυχή σου καὶ τί ποιήσω σοι

5 καὶ εἶπεν Δαυιδ πρὸς Ιωναθαν ἰδοὺ δὴ νεομηνία αὔριον καὶ ἐγὼ καθίσας οὐ καθήσομαι μετὰ τοῦ βασιλέως φαγεῖν καὶ ἐξαποστελεῖς με καὶ κρυβήσομαι ἐν τῷ πεδίῳ ἕως δείλης

6 ἐὰν ἐπισκεπτόμενος ἐπισκέψηταί με ὁ πατήρ σου καὶ ἐρεῖς παραιτούμενος παρῃτήσατο ἀπ᾽ ἐμοῦ Δαυιδ δραμεῖν ἕως εἰς Βηθλεεμ τὴν πόλιν αὐτοῦ ὅτι θυσία τῶν ἡμερῶν ἐκεῖ ὅλῃ τῇ φυλῇ

7 ἐὰν τάδε εἴπῃ ἀγαθῶς εἰρήνη τῷ δούλῳ σου καὶ ἐὰν σκληρῶς ἀποκριθῇ σοι γνῶθι ὅτι συντετέλεσται ἡ κακία παρ᾽ αὐτοῦ

8 καὶ ποιήσεις ἔλεος μετὰ τοῦ δούλου σου ὅτι εἰσήγαγες εἰς διαθήκην κυρίου τὸν δοῦλόν σου μετὰ σεαυτοῦ καὶ εἰ ἔστιν ἀδικία ἐν τῷ δούλῳ σου θανάτωσόν με σύ καὶ ἕως τοῦ πατρός σου ἵνα τί οὕτως εἰσάγεις με

9 καὶ εἶπεν Ιωναθαν μηδαμῶς σοι ὅτι ἐὰν γινώσκων γνῶ ὅτι συντετέλεσται ἡ κακία παρὰ τοῦ πατρός μου τοῦ ἐλθεῖν ἐπὶ σέ καὶ ἐὰν μή εἰς τὰς πόλεις σου ἐγὼ ἀπαγγελῶ σοι

10 καὶ εἶπεν Δαυιδ πρὸς Ιωναθαν τίς ἀπαγγελεῖ μοι ἐὰν ἀποκριθῇ ὁ πατήρ σου σκληρῶς

11 καὶ εἶπεν Ιωναθαν πρὸς Δαυιδ πορεύου καὶ μένε εἰς ἀγρόν καὶ ἐκπορεύονται ἀμφότεροι εἰς ἀγρόν

12 καὶ εἶπεν Ιωναθαν πρὸς Δαυιδ κύριος ὁ θεὸς Ισραηλ οἶδεν ὅτι ἀνακρινῶ τὸν πατέρα μου ὡς ἂν ὁ καιρὸς τρισσῶς καὶ ἰδοὺ ἀγαθὸν ᾖ περὶ Δαυιδ καὶ οὐ μὴ ἀποστείλω πρὸς σὲ εἰς ἀγρόν

13 τάδε ποιήσαι ὁ θεὸς τῷ Ιωναθαν καὶ τάδε προσθείη ὅτι ἀνοίσω τὰ κακὰ ἐπὶ σὲ καὶ ἀποκαλύψω τὸ ὠτίον σου καὶ ἐξαποστελῶ σε καὶ ἀπελεύσῃ εἰς εἰρήνην καὶ ἔσται κύριος μετὰ σοῦ καθὼς ἦν μετὰ τοῦ πατρός μου

14 καὶ μὲν ἔτι μου ζῶντος καὶ ποιήσεις ἔλεος μετ᾽ ἐμοῦ καὶ ἐὰν θανάτῳ ἀποθάνω

15 οὐκ ἐξαρεῖς ἔλεός σου ἀπὸ τοῦ οἴκου μου ἕως τοῦ αἰῶνος καὶ εἰ μὴ ἐν τῷ ἐξαίρειν κύριον τοὺς ἐχθροὺς Δαυιδ ἕκαστον ἀπὸ προσώπου τῆς γῆς

16 ἐξαρθῆναι τὸ ὄνομα τοῦ Ιωναθαν ἀπὸ τοῦ οἴκου Δαυιδ καὶ ἐκζητήσαι κύριος ἐχθροὺς τοῦ Δαυιδ

17 καὶ προσέθετο ἔτι Ιωναθαν ὀμόσαι τῷ Δαυιδ ὅτι ἠγάπησεν ψυχὴν ἀγαπῶντος αὐτόν

18 καὶ εἶπεν Ιωναθαν αὔριον νουμηνία καὶ ἐπισκεπήσῃ ὅτι ἐπισκεπήσεται καθέδρα σου

19 καὶ τρισσεύσεις καὶ ἐπισκέψῃ καὶ ἥξεις εἰς τὸν τόπον σου οὗ ἐκρύβης ἐν τῇ ἡμέρᾳ τῇ ἐργασίμῃ καὶ καθήσῃ παρὰ τὸ εργαβ ἐκεῖνο

20 καὶ ἐγὼ τρισσεύσω ταῖς σχίζαις ἀκοντίζων ἐκπέμπων εἰς τὴν αματταρι

21 καὶ ἰδοὺ ἀποστελῶ τὸ παιδάριον λέγων δεῦρο εὑρέ μοι τὴν σχίζαν ἐὰν εἴπω λέγων τῷ παιδαρίῳ ὧδε ἡ σχίζα ἀπὸ σοῦ καὶ ὧδε λαβὲ αὐτήν παραγίνου ὅτι εἰρήνη σοι καὶ οὐκ ἔστιν λόγος ζῇ κύριος

22 ἐὰν τάδε εἴπω τῷ νεανίσκῳ ὧδε ἡ σχίζα ἀπὸ σοῦ καὶ ἐπέκεινα πορεύου ὅτι ἐξαπέσταλκέν σε κύριος

23 καὶ τὸ ῥῆμα ὃ ἐλαλήσαμεν ἐγὼ καὶ σύ ἰδοὺ κύριος μάρτυς ἀνὰ μέσον ἐμοῦ καὶ σοῦ ἕως αἰῶνος

24 καὶ κρύπτεται Δαυιδ ἐν ἀγρῷ καὶ παραγίνεται ὁ μήν καὶ ἔρχεται ὁ βασιλεὺς ἐπὶ τὴν τράπεζαν τοῦ φαγεῖν

25 καὶ ἐκάθισεν ὁ βασιλεὺς ἐπὶ τὴν καθέδραν αὐτοῦ ὡς ἅπαξ καὶ ἅπαξ ἐπὶ τῆς καθέδρας παρὰ τοῖχον καὶ προέφθασεν τὸν Ιωναθαν καὶ ἐκάθισεν Αβεννηρ ἐκ πλαγίων Σαουλ καὶ ἐπεσκέπη ὁ τόπος Δαυιδ

26 καὶ οὐκ ἐλάλησεν Σαουλ οὐδὲν ἐν τῇ ἡμέρᾳ ἐκείνῃ ὅτι εἶπεν σύμπτωμα φαίνεται μὴ καθαρὸς εἶναι ὅτι οὐ κεκαθάρισται

27 καὶ ἐγενήθη τῇ ἐπαύριον τοῦ μηνὸς τῇ ἡμέρᾳ τῇ δευτέρᾳ καὶ ἐπεσκέπη ὁ τόπος τοῦ Δαυιδ καὶ εἶπεν Σαουλ πρὸς Ιωναθαν τὸν υἱὸν αὐτοῦ τί ὅτι οὐ παραγέγονεν ὁ υἱὸς Ιεσσαι καὶ ἐχθὲς καὶ σήμερον ἐπὶ τὴν τράπεζαν

28 καὶ ἀπεκρίθη Ιωναθαν τῷ Σαουλ καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῷ παρῄτηται Δαυιδ παρ᾽ ἐμοῦ ἕως εἰς Βηθλεεμ τὴν πόλιν αὐτοῦ πορευθῆναι

29 καὶ εἶπεν ἐξαπόστειλον δή με ὅτι θυσία τῆς φυλῆς ἡμῖν ἐν τῇ πόλει καὶ ἐνετείλαντο πρός με οἱ ἀδελφοί μου καὶ νῦν εἰ εὕρηκα χάριν ἐν ὀφθαλμοῖς σου διασωθήσομαι δὴ καὶ ὄψομαι τοὺς ἀδελφούς μου διὰ τοῦτο οὐ παραγέγονεν ἐπὶ τὴν τράπεζαν τοῦ βασιλέως

30 καὶ ἐθυμώθη ὀργῇ Σαουλ ἐπὶ Ιωναθαν σφόδρα καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῷ υἱὲ κορασίων αὐτομολούντων οὐ γὰρ οἶδα ὅτι μέτοχος εἶ σὺ τῷ υἱῷ Ιεσσαι εἰς αἰσχύνην σου καὶ εἰς αἰσχύνην ἀποκαλύψεως μητρός σου

31 ὅτι πάσας τὰς ἡμέρας ἃς ὁ υἱὸς Ιεσσαι ζῇ ἐπὶ τῆς γῆς οὐχ ἑτοιμασθήσεται ἡ βασιλεία σου νῦν οὖν ἀποστείλας λαβὲ τὸν νεανίαν ὅτι υἱὸς θανάτου οὗτος

32 καὶ ἀπεκρίθη Ιωναθαν τῷ Σαουλ ἵνα τί ἀποθνῄσκει τί πεποίηκεν

33 καὶ ἐπῆρεν Σαουλ τὸ δόρυ ἐπὶ Ιωναθαν τοῦ θανατῶσαι αὐτόν καὶ ἔγνω Ιωναθαν ὅτι συντετέλεσται ἡ κακία αὕτη παρὰ τοῦ πατρὸς αὐτοῦ θανατῶσαι τὸν Δαυιδ

34 καὶ ἀνεπήδησεν Ιωναθαν ἀπὸ τῆς τραπέζης ἐν ὀργῇ θυμοῦ καὶ οὐκ ἔφαγεν ἐν τῇ δευτέρᾳ τοῦ μηνὸς ἄρτον ὅτι ἐθραύσθη ἐπὶ τὸν Δαυιδ ὅτι συνετέλεσεν ἐπ᾽ αὐτὸν ὁ πατὴρ αὐτοῦ

35 καὶ ἐγενήθη πρωὶ καὶ ἐξῆλθεν Ιωναθαν εἰς ἀγρόν καθὼς ἐτάξατο εἰς τὸ μαρτύριον Δαυιδ καὶ παιδάριον μικρὸν μετ᾽ αὐτοῦ

36 καὶ εἶπεν τῷ παιδαρίῳ δράμε εὑρέ μοι τὰς σχίζας ἐν αἷς ἐγὼ ἀκοντίζω καὶ τὸ παιδάριον ἔδραμε καὶ αὐτὸς ἠκόντιζε τῇ σχίζῃ καὶ παρήγαγεν αὐτήν

37 καὶ ἦλθεν τὸ παιδάριον ἕως τοῦ τόπου τῆς σχίζης οὗ ἠκόντιζεν Ιωναθαν καὶ ἀνεβόησεν Ιωναθαν ὀπίσω τοῦ νεανίου καὶ εἶπεν ἐκεῖ ἡ σχίζα ἀπὸ σοῦ καὶ ἐπέκεινα

38 καὶ ἀνεβόησεν Ιωναθαν ὀπίσω τοῦ παιδαρίου αὐτοῦ λέγων ταχύνας σπεῦσον καὶ μὴ στῇς καὶ ἀνέλεξεν τὸ παιδάριον Ιωναθαν τὰς σχίζας πρὸς τὸν κύριον αὐτοῦ

39 καὶ τὸ παιδάριον οὐκ ἔγνω οὐθέν πάρεξ Ιωναθαν καὶ Δαυιδ ἔγνωσαν τὸ ῥῆμα

40 καὶ Ιωναθαν ἔδωκεν τὰ σκεύη αὐτοῦ ἐπὶ τὸ παιδάριον αὐτοῦ καὶ εἶπεν τῷ παιδαρίῳ αὐτοῦ πορεύου εἴσελθε εἰς τὴν πόλιν

41 καὶ ὡς εἰσῆλθεν τὸ παιδάριον καὶ Δαυιδ ἀνέστη ἀπὸ τοῦ εργαβ καὶ ἔπεσεν ἐπὶ πρόσωπον αὐτοῦ καὶ προσεκύνησεν αὐτῷ τρίς καὶ κατεφίλησεν ἕκαστος τὸν πλησίον αὐτοῦ καὶ ἔκλαυσεν ἕκαστος τῷ πλησίον αὐτοῦ ἕως συντελείας μεγάλης

42 καὶ εἶπεν Ιωναθαν πορεύου εἰς εἰρήνην καὶ ὡς ὀμωμόκαμεν ἡμεῖς ἀμφότεροι ἐν ὀνόματι κυρίου λέγοντες κύριος ἔσται μάρτυς ἀνὰ μέσον ἐμοῦ καὶ σοῦ καὶ ἀνὰ μέσον τοῦ σπέρματός μου καὶ ἀνὰ μέσον τοῦ σπέρματός σου ἕως αἰῶνος

1 Fugit autem David de Najoth, quæ est in Ramatha, veniensque locutus est coram Jonatha: Quid feci? quæ est iniquitas mea, et quod peccatum meum in patrem tuum, quia quærit animam meam?

2 Qui dixit ei: Absit, non morieris: neque enim faciet pater meus quidquam grande vel parvum, nisi prius indicaverit mihi: hunc ergo celavit me pater meus sermonem tantummodo? nequaquam erit istud.

3 Et juravit rursum Davidi. Et ille ait: Scit profecto pater tuus quia inveni gratiam in oculis tuis, et dicet: Nesciat hoc Jonathas, ne forte tristetur. Quinimmo vivit Dominus, et vivit anima tua, quia uno tantum (ut ita dicam) gradu ego morsque dividimur.

4 Et ait Jonathas ad David: Quodcumque dixerit mihi anima tua, faciam tibi.

5 Dixit autem David ad Jonathan: Ecce calendæ sunt crastino, et ego ex more sedere soleo juxta regem ad vescendum: dimitte ergo me ut abscondar in agro usque ad vesperam diei tertiæ.

6 Si respiciens requisierit me pater tuus, respondebis ei: Rogavit me David ut iret celeriter in Bethlehem civitatem suam, quia victimæ solemnes ibi sunt universis contribulibus suis.

7 Si dixerit: Bene: pax erit servo tuo. Si autem fuerit iratus, scito quia completa est malitia ejus.

8 Fac ergo misericordiam in servum tuum, quia fœdus Domini me famulum tuum tecum inire fecisti: si autem est iniquitas aliqua in me, tu me interfice, et ad patrem tuum ne introducas me.

9 Et ait Jonathas: Absit hoc a te: neque enim fieri potest, ut si certe cognovero completam esse patris mei malitiam contra te, non annuntiem tibi.

10 Responditque David ad Jonathan: Quis renuntiabit mihi, si quid forte responderit tibi pater tuus dure de me?

11 Et ait Jonathas ad David: Veni, et egrediamur foras in agrum. Cumque exissent ambo in agrum,

12 ait Jonathas ad David: Domine Deus Israël, si investigavero sententiam patris mei crastino vel perendie, et aliquid boni fuerit super David, et non statim misero ad te, et notum tibi fecero,

13 hæc faciat Dominus Jonathæ, et hæc addat. Si autem perseveraverit patris mei malitia adversum te, revelabo aurem tuam, et dimittam te, ut vadas in pace, et sit Dominus tecum, sicut fuit cum patre meo.

14 Et si vixero, facies mihi misericordiam Domini: si vero mortuus fuero,

15 non auferes misericordiam tuam a domo mea usque in sempiternum, quando eradicaverit Dominus inimicos David, unumquemque de terra: auferat Jonathan de domo sua, et requirat Dominus de manu inimicorum David.

16 Pepigit ergo Jonathas fœdus cum domo David: et requisivit Dominus de manu inimicorum David.

17 Et addidit Jonathas dejerare David, eo quod diligeret illum: sicut enim animam suam, ita diligebat eum.

18 Dixitque ad eum Jonathas: Cras calendæ sunt, et requireris:

19 requiretur enim sessio tua usque perendie. Descendes ergo festinus, et venies in locum ubi celandus es in die qua operari licet, et sedebis juxta lapidem cui nomen est Ezel.

20 Et ego tres sagittas mittam juxta eum, et jaciam quasi exercens me ad signum.

21 Mittam quoque et puerum, dicens ei: Vade, et affer mihi sagittas.

22 Si dixero puero: Ecce sagittæ intra te sunt, tolle eas: tu veni ad me, quia pax tibi est, et nihil est mali, vivit Dominus. Si autem sic locutus fuero puero: Ecce sagittæ ultra te sunt: vade in pace, quia dimisit te Dominus.

23 De verbo autem quod locuti sumus ego et tu, sit Dominus inter me et te usque in sempiternum.

24 Absconditus est ergo David in agro, et venerunt calendæ, et sedit rex ad comedendum panem.

25 Cumque sedisset rex super cathedram suam (secundum consuetudinem) quæ erat juxta parietem, surrexit Jonathas, et sedit Abner ex latere Saul: vacuusque apparuit locus David.

26 Et non est locutus Saul quidquam in die illa: cogitabat enim quod forte evenisset ei, ut non esset mundus, nec purificatus.

27 Cumque illuxisset dies secunda post calendas, rursus apparuit vacuus locus David. Dixitque Saul ad Jonathan filium suum: Cur non venit filius Isai nec heri nec hodie ad vescendum?

28 Responditque Jonathas Sauli: Rogavit me obnixe ut iret in Bethlehem,

29 et ait: Dimitte me, quoniam sacrificium solemne est in civitate, unus de fratribus meis accersivit me: nunc ergo si inveni gratiam in oculis tuis, vadam cito, et videbo fratres meos. Ob hanc causam non venit ad mensam regis.

30 Iratus autem Saul adversum Jonathan, dixit ei: Fili mulieris virum ultro rapientis, numquid ignoro quia diligis filium Isai in confusionem tuam, et in confusionem ignominiosæ matris tuæ?

31 Omnibus enim diebus quibus filius Isai vixerit super terram, non stabilieris tu, neque regnum tuum. Itaque jam nunc mitte, et adduc eum ad me: quia filius mortis est.

32 Respondens autem Jonathas Sauli patri suo, ait: Quare morietur? quid fecit?

33 Et arripuit Saul lanceam ut percuteret eum. Et intellexit Jonathas quod definitum esset a patre suo, ut interficeret David.

34 Surrexit ergo Jonathas a mensa in ira furoris, et non comedit in die calendarum secunda panem. Contristatus est enim super David, eo quod confudisset eum pater suus.

35 Cumque illuxisset mane, venit Jonathas in agrum juxta placitum David, et puer parvulus cum eo.

36 Et ait ad puerum suum: Vade, et affer mihi sagittas quas ego jacio. Cumque puer cucurrisset, jecit aliam sagittam trans puerum.

37 Venit itaque puer ad locum jaculi quod miserat Jonathas: et clamavit Jonathas post tergum pueri, et ait: Ecce ibi est sagitta porro ultra te.

38 Clamavitque iterum Jonathas post tergum pueri, dicens: Festina velociter, ne steteris. Collegit autem puer Jonathæ sagittas, et attulit ad dominum suum:

39 et quid ageretur, penitus ignorabat, tantummodo enim Jonathas et David rem noverant.

40 Dedit ergo Jonathas arma sua puero, et dixit ei: Vade, et defer in civitatem.

41 Cumque abiisset puer, surrexit David de loco qui vergebat ad austrum, et cadens pronus in terram, adoravit tertio: et osculantes se alterutrum, fleverunt pariter, David autem amplius.

42 Dixit ergo Jonathas ad David: Vade in pace: quæcumque juravimus ambo in nomine Domini, dicentes: Dominus sit inter me et te, et inter semen meum et semen tuum usque in sempiternum.

43 Et surrexit David, et abiit: sed et Jonathas ingressus est civitatem.
