1 Samuel 19


1  And Saul7586 spoke1696 to413 Jonathan3083 his son,1121 and to413 all3605 his servants,5650 that they should kill4191 853 David.1732

2  But Jonathan3083 Saul's7586 son1121 delighted2654 much3966 in David:1732 and Jonathan3083 told5046 David,1732 saying,559 Saul7586 my father1 seeketh1245 to kill4191 thee: now6258 therefore, I pray thee,4994 take heed to thyself8104 until the morning,1242 and abide3427 in a secret5643 place, and hide thyself:2244

3  And I589 will go out3318 and stand5975 beside3027 my father1 in the field7704 where834 8033 thou859 art, and I589 will commune1696 with413 my father1 of thee; and what4100 I see,7200 that I will tell5046 thee.

4  And Jonathan3083 spoke1696 good2896 of David1732 unto413 Saul7586 his father,1 and said559 unto413 him, Let not408 the king4428 sin2398 against his servant,5650 against David;1732 because3588 he hath not3808 sinned2398 against thee, and because3588 his works4639 have been to thee-ward very3966 good:2896

5  For he did put7760 853 his life5315 in his hand,3709 and slew5221 853 the Philistine,6430 and the LORD3068 wrought6213 a great1419 salvation8668 for all3605 Israel:3478 thou sawest7200 it, and didst rejoice:8055 wherefore4100 then wilt thou sin2398 against innocent5355 blood,1818 to slay4191 853 David1732 without a cause?2600

6  And Saul7586 hearkened8085 unto the voice6963 of Jonathan:3083 and Saul7586 swore,7650 As the LORD3068 liveth,2416 he shall not518 be slain.4191

7  And Jonathan3083 called7121 David,1732 and Jonathan3083 showed5046 him 853 all3605 those428 things.1697 And Jonathan3083 brought935 853 David1732 to413 Saul,7586 and he was1961 in his presence,6440 as in times past.8032 865

8  And there was1961 war4421 again:3254 and David1732 went out,3318 and fought3898 with the Philistines,6430 and slew5221 them with a great1419 slaughter;4347 and they fled5127 from4480 6440 him.

9  And the evil7451 spirit7307 from the LORD3068 was1961 upon413 Saul,7586 as he1931 sat3427 in his house1004 with his javelin2595 in his hand:3027 and David1732 played5059 with his hand.3027

10  And Saul7586 sought1245 to smite5221 David1732 even to the wall7023 with the javelin;2595 but he slipped away6362 out of Saul's presence,4480 6440 7586 and he smote5221 853 the javelin2595 into the wall:7023 and David1732 fled,5127 and escaped4422 that1931 night.3915

11  Saul7586 also sent7971 messengers4397 unto413 David's1732 house,1004 to watch8104 him, and to slay4191 him in the morning:1242 and Michal4324 David's1732 wife802 told5046 him, saying,559 If518 thou save4422 not369 853 thy life5315 tonight,3915 tomorrow4279 thou859 shalt be slain.4191

12  So Michal4324 let David down3381 853 1732 through1157 a window:2474 and he went,1980 and fled,1272 and escaped.4422

13  And Michal4324 took3947 853 an image,8655 and laid7760 it in413 the bed,4296 and put7760 a pillow3523 of goats'5795 hair for his bolster,4763 and covered3680 it with a cloth.899

14  And when Saul7586 sent7971 messengers4397 to take3947 853 David,1732 she said,559 He1931 is sick.2470

15  And Saul7586 sent7971 853 the messengers4397 again to see7200 853 David,1732 saying,559 Bring him up5927 853 to413 me in the bed,4296 that I may slay4191 him.

16  And when the messengers4397 were come in,935 behold,2009 there was an image8655 in413 the bed,4296 with a pillow3523 of goats'5795 hair for his bolster.4763

17  And Saul7586 said559 unto413 Michal,4324 Why4100 hast thou deceived7411 me so,3602 and sent away7971 853 mine enemy,341 that he is escaped?4422 And Michal4324 answered559 413 Saul,7586 He1931 said559 unto413 me, Let me go;7971 why4100 should I kill4191 thee?

18  So David1732 fled,1272 and escaped,4422 and came935 to413 Samuel8050 to Ramah,7414 and told5046 him 853 all3605 that834 Saul7586 had done6213 to him. And he1931 and Samuel8050 went1980 and dwelt3427 in Naioth.5121

19  And it was told5046 Saul,7586 saying,559 Behold,2009 David1732 is at Naioth5121 in Ramah.7414

20  And Saul7586 sent7971 messengers4397 to take3947 853 David:1732 and when they saw7200 853 the company3862 of the prophets5030 prophesying,5012 and Samuel8050 standing5975 as appointed5324 over5921 them, the Spirit7307 of God430 was1961 upon5921 the messengers4397 of Saul,7586 and they1992 also1571 prophesied.5012

21  And when it was told5046 Saul,7586 he sent7971 other312 messengers,4397 and they1992 prophesied5012 likewise.1571 And Saul7586 sent7971 messengers4397 again3254 the third7992 time, and they1992 prophesied5012 also.1571

22  Then went1980 he1931 also1571 to Ramah,7414 and came935 to5704 a great1419 well953 that834 is in Sechu:7906 and he asked7592 and said,559 Where375 are Samuel8050 and David?1732 And one said,559 Behold,2009 they be at Naioth5121 in Ramah.7414

23  And he went1980 thither8033 to413 Naioth5121 in Ramah:7414 and the Spirit7307 of God430 was1961 upon5921 him1931 also,1571 and he went on,1980 1980 and prophesied,5012 until5704 he came935 to Naioth5121 in Ramah.7414

24  And he1931 stripped off6584 his clothes899 also,1571 and prophesied5012 before6440 Samuel8050 in like manner,1571 and lay down5307 naked6174 all3605 that1931 day3117 and all3605 that night.3915 Wherefore5921 3651 they say,559 Is Saul7586 also1571 among the prophets?5030


1 καὶ ἐλάλησεν Σαουλ πρὸς Ιωναθαν τὸν υἱὸν αὐτοῦ καὶ πρὸς πάντας τοὺς παῖδας αὐτοῦ θανατῶσαι τὸν Δαυιδ καὶ Ιωναθαν υἱὸς Σαουλ ᾑρεῖτο τὸν Δαυιδ σφόδρα

2 καὶ ἀπήγγειλεν Ιωναθαν τῷ Δαυιδ λέγων Σαουλ ζητεῖ θανατῶσαί σε φύλαξαι οὖν αὔριον πρωὶ καὶ κρύβηθι καὶ κάθισον κρυβῇ

3 καὶ ἐγὼ ἐξελεύσομαι καὶ στήσομαι ἐχόμενος τοῦ πατρός μου ἐν ἀγρῷ οὗ ἐὰν ᾖς ἐκεῖ καὶ ἐγὼ λαλήσω περὶ σοῦ πρὸς τὸν πατέρα μου καὶ ὄψομαι ὅ τι ἐὰν ᾖ καὶ ἀπαγγελῶ σοι

4 καὶ ἐλάλησεν Ιωναθαν περὶ Δαυιδ ἀγαθὰ πρὸς Σαουλ τὸν πατέρα αὐτοῦ καὶ εἶπεν πρὸς αὐτόν μὴ ἁμαρτησάτω ὁ βασιλεὺς εἰς τὸν δοῦλόν σου Δαυιδ ὅτι οὐχ ἡμάρτηκεν εἰς σέ καὶ τὰ ποιήματα αὐτοῦ ἀγαθὰ σφόδρα

5 καὶ ἔθετο τὴν ψυχὴν αὐτοῦ ἐν τῇ χειρὶ αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐπάταξεν τὸν ἀλλόφυλον καὶ ἐποίησεν κύριος σωτηρίαν μεγάλην καὶ πᾶς Ισραηλ εἶδον καὶ ἐχάρησαν καὶ ἵνα τί ἁμαρτάνεις εἰς αἷμα ἀθῷον θανατῶσαι τὸν Δαυιδ δωρεάν

6 καὶ ἤκουσεν Σαουλ τῆς φωνῆς Ιωναθαν καὶ ὤμοσεν Σαουλ λέγων ζῇ κύριος εἰ ἀποθανεῖται

7 καὶ ἐκάλεσεν Ιωναθαν τὸν Δαυιδ καὶ ἀπήγγειλεν αὐτῷ πάντα τὰ ῥήματα ταῦτα καὶ εἰσήγαγεν Ιωναθαν τὸν Δαυιδ πρὸς Σαουλ καὶ ἦν ἐνώπιον αὐτοῦ ὡσεὶ ἐχθὲς καὶ τρίτην ἡμέραν

8 καὶ προσέθετο ὁ πόλεμος γενέσθαι πρὸς Σαουλ καὶ κατίσχυσεν Δαυιδ καὶ ἐπολέμησεν τοὺς ἀλλοφύλους καὶ ἐπάταξεν ἐν αὐτοῖς πληγὴν μεγάλην σφόδρα καὶ ἔφυγον ἐκ προσώπου αὐτοῦ

9 καὶ ἐγένετο πνεῦμα θεοῦ πονηρὸν ἐπὶ Σαουλ καὶ αὐτὸς ἐν οἴκῳ καθεύδων καὶ δόρυ ἐν τῇ χειρὶ αὐτοῦ καὶ Δαυιδ ἔψαλλεν ἐν ταῖς χερσὶν αὐτοῦ

10 καὶ ἐζήτει Σαουλ πατάξαι τὸ δόρυ εἰς Δαυιδ καὶ ἀπέστη Δαυιδ ἐκ προσώπου Σαουλ καὶ ἐπάταξεν τὸ δόρυ εἰς τὸν τοῖχον καὶ Δαυιδ ἀνεχώρησεν καὶ διεσώθη

11 καὶ ἐγενήθη ἐν τῇ νυκτὶ ἐκείνῃ καὶ ἀπέστειλεν Σαουλ ἀγγέλους εἰς οἶκον Δαυιδ φυλάξαι αὐτὸν τοῦ θανατῶσαι αὐτὸν πρωί καὶ ἀπήγγειλεν τῷ Δαυιδ Μελχολ ἡ γυνὴ αὐτοῦ λέγουσα ἐὰν μὴ σὺ σώσῃς τὴν ψυχὴν σαυτοῦ τὴν νύκτα ταύτην αὔριον θανατωθήσῃ

12 καὶ κατάγει ἡ Μελχολ τὸν Δαυιδ διὰ τῆς θυρίδος καὶ ἀπῆλθεν καὶ ἔφυγεν καὶ σῴζεται

13 καὶ ἔλαβεν ἡ Μελχολ τὰ κενοτάφια καὶ ἔθετο ἐπὶ τὴν κλίνην καὶ ἧπαρ τῶν αἰγῶν ἔθετο πρὸς κεφαλῆς αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐκάλυψεν αὐτὰ ἱματίῳ

14 καὶ ἀπέστειλεν Σαουλ ἀγγέλους λαβεῖν τὸν Δαυιδ καὶ λέγουσιν ἐνοχλεῖσθαι αὐτόν

15 καὶ ἀποστέλλει ἐπὶ τὸν Δαυιδ λέγων ἀγάγετε αὐτὸν ἐπὶ τῆς κλίνης πρός με τοῦ θανατῶσαι αὐτόν

16 καὶ ἔρχονται οἱ ἄγγελοι καὶ ἰδοὺ τὰ κενοτάφια ἐπὶ τῆς κλίνης καὶ ἧπαρ τῶν αἰγῶν πρὸς κεφαλῆς αὐτοῦ

17 καὶ εἶπεν Σαουλ τῇ Μελχολ ἵνα τί οὕτως παρελογίσω με καὶ ἐξαπέστειλας τὸν ἐχθρόν μου καὶ διεσώθη καὶ εἶπεν Μελχολ τῷ Σαουλ αὐτὸς εἶπεν ἐξαπόστειλόν με εἰ δὲ μή θανατώσω σε

18 καὶ Δαυιδ ἔφυγεν καὶ διεσώθη καὶ παραγίνεται πρὸς Σαμουηλ εἰς Αρμαθαιμ καὶ ἀπαγγέλλει αὐτῷ πάντα ὅσα ἐποίησεν αὐτῷ Σαουλ καὶ ἐπορεύθη Δαυιδ καὶ Σαμουηλ καὶ ἐκάθισαν ἐν Ναυαθ ἐν Ραμα

19 καὶ ἀπηγγέλη τῷ Σαουλ λέγοντες ἰδοὺ Δαυιδ ἐν Ναυαθ ἐν Ραμα

20 καὶ ἀπέστειλεν Σαουλ ἀγγέλους λαβεῖν τὸν Δαυιδ καὶ εἶδαν τὴν ἐκκλησίαν τῶν προφητῶν καὶ Σαμουηλ εἱστήκει καθεστηκὼς ἐπ᾽ αὐτῶν καὶ ἐγενήθη ἐπὶ τοὺς ἀγγέλους τοῦ Σαουλ πνεῦμα θεοῦ καὶ προφητεύουσιν

21 καὶ ἀπηγγέλη τῷ Σαουλ καὶ ἀπέστειλεν ἀγγέλους ἑτέρους καὶ ἐπροφήτευσαν καὶ αὐτοί καὶ προσέθετο Σαουλ ἀποστεῖλαι ἀγγέλους τρίτους καὶ ἐπροφήτευσαν καὶ αὐτοί

22 καὶ ἐθυμώθη ὀργῇ Σαουλ καὶ ἐπορεύθη καὶ αὐτὸς εἰς Αρμαθαιμ καὶ ἔρχεται ἕως τοῦ φρέατος τοῦ ἅλω τοῦ ἐν τῷ Σεφι καὶ ἠρώτησεν καὶ εἶπεν ποῦ Σαμουηλ καὶ Δαυιδ καὶ εἶπαν ἰδοὺ ἐν Ναυαθ ἐν Ραμα

23 καὶ ἐπορεύθη ἐκεῖθεν εἰς Ναυαθ ἐν Ραμα καὶ ἐγενήθη καὶ ἐπ᾽ αὐτῷ πνεῦμα θεοῦ καὶ ἐπορεύετο προφητεύων ἕως τοῦ ἐλθεῖν αὐτὸν εἰς Ναυαθ ἐν Ραμα

24 καὶ ἐξεδύσατο τὰ ἱμάτια αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐπροφήτευσεν ἐνώπιον αὐτῶν καὶ ἔπεσεν γυμνὸς ὅλην τὴν ἡμέραν ἐκείνην καὶ ὅλην τὴν νύκτα διὰ τοῦτο ἔλεγον εἰ καὶ Σαουλ ἐν προφήταις

1 Locutus est autem Saul ad Jonathan filium suum, et ad omnes servos suos, ut occiderent David. Porro Jonathas filius Saul diligebat David valde:

2 et indicavit Jonathas David, dicens: Quærit Saul pater meus occidere te: quapropter observa te, quæso, mane: et manebis clam, et absconderis.

3 Ego autem egrediens stabo juxta patrem meum in agro, ubicumque fueris: et ego loquar de te ad patrem meum, et quodcumque videro, nuntiabo tibi.

4 Locutus est ergo Jonathas de David bona ad Saul patrem suum: dixitque ad eum: Ne pecces rex in servum tuum David, quia non peccavit tibi, et opera ejus bona sunt tibi valde.

5 Et posuit animam suam in manu sua, et percussit Philisthæum, et fecit Dominus salutem magnam universo Israëli: vidisti, et lætatus es. Quare ergo peccas in sanguine innoxio, interficiens David, qui est absque culpa?

6 Quod cum audisset Saul, placatus voce Jonathæ, juravit: Vivit Dominus, quia non occidetur.

7 Vocavit itaque Jonathas David, et indicavit ei omnia verba hæc: et introduxit Jonathas David ad Saul, et fuit ante eum sicut fuerat heri et nudiustertius.

8 Motum est autem rursum bellum: et egressus David, pugnavit adversum Philisthiim: percussitque eos plaga magna, et fugerunt a facie ejus.

9 Et factus est spiritus Domini malus in Saul: sedebat autem in domo sua, et tenebat lanceam: porro David psallebat manu sua.

10 Nisusque est Saul configere David lancea in pariete, et declinavit David a facie Saul: lancea autem casso vulnere perlata est in parietem, et David fugit, et salvatus est nocte illa.

11 Misit ergo Saul satellites suos in domum David, ut custodirent eum, et interficeretur mane. Quod cum annuntiasset David Michol uxor sua, dicens: Nisi salvaveris te nocte hac, cras morieris:

12 deposuit eum per fenestram. Porro ille abiit et aufugit, atque salvatus est.

13 Tulit autem Michol statuam, et posuit eam super lectum, et pellem pilosam caprarum posuit ad caput ejus, et operuit eam vestimentis.

14 Misit autem Saul apparitores, qui raperent David: et responsum est quod ægrotaret.

15 Rursumque misit Saul nuntios ut viderent David, dicens: Afferte eum ad me in lecto, ut occidatur.

16 Cumque venissent nuntii, inventum est simulacrum super lectum, et pellis caprarum ad caput ejus.

17 Dixitque Saul ad Michol: Quare sic illusisti mihi, et dimisisti inimicum meum ut fugeret? Et respondit Michol ad Saul: Quia ipse locutus est mihi: Dimitte me, alioquin interficiam te.

18 David autem fugiens salvatus est, et venit ad Samuel in Ramatha, et nuntiavit ei omnia quæ fecerat sibi Saul: et abierunt ipse et Samuel, et morati sunt in Najoth.

19 Nuntiatum est autem Sauli a dicentibus: Ecce David in Najoth in Ramatha.

20 Misit ergo Saul lictores, ut raperent David: qui cum vidissent cuneum prophetarum vaticinantium, et Samuelem stantem super eos, factus est etiam spiritus Domini in illis, et prophetare cœperunt etiam ipsi.

21 Quod cum nuntiatum esset Sauli, misit et alios nuntios: prophetaverunt autem et illi. Et rursum misit Saul tertios nuntios: qui et ipsi prophetaverunt. Et iratus iracundia Saul,

22 abiit etiam ipse in Ramatha, et venit usque ad cisternam magnam quæ est in Socho, et interrogavit, et dixit: In quo loco sunt Samuel et David? Dictumque est ei: Ecce in Najoth sunt in Ramatha.

23 Et abiit in Najoth in Ramatha, et factus est etiam super eum spiritus Domini, et ambulabat ingrediens, et prophetabat usque dum veniret in Najoth in Ramatha.

24 Et expoliavit etiam ipse se vestimentis suis, et prophetavit cum ceteris coram Samuele, et cecidit nudus tota die illa et nocte. Unde et exivit proverbium: Num et Saul inter prophetas?
