1 Samuel 30


1  And it came to pass,1961 when David1732 and his men376 were come935 to Ziklag6860 on the third7992 day,3117 that the Amalekites6003 had invaded6584 413 the south,5045 and Ziklag,6860 and smitten5221 853 Ziklag,6860 and burned8313 it with fire;784

2  And had taken the women captives,7617 853 802 that834 were therein: they slew4191 not3808 any,376 either5704 great1419 or small,4480 6996 but carried them away,5090 and went1980 on their way.1870

3  So David1732 and his men376 came935 to413 the city,5892 and, behold,2009 it was burned8313 with fire;784 and their wives,802 and their sons,1121 and their daughters,1323 were taken captives.7617

4  Then David1732 and the people5971 that834 were with854 him lifted up5375 853 their voice6963 and wept,1058 until5704 834 they had no more369 power3581 to weep.1058

5  And David's1732 two8147 wives802 were taken captives,7617 Ahinoam293 the Jezreelitess,3159 and Abigail26 the wife802 of Nabal5037 the Carmelite.3761

6  And David1732 was greatly3966 distressed;3334 for3588 the people5971 spoke559 of stoning5619 him, because3588 the soul5315 of all3605 the people5971 was grieved,4843 every man376 for5921 his sons1121 and for5921 his daughters:1323 but David1732 encouraged himself2388 in the LORD3068 his God.430

7  And David1732 said559 to413 Abiathar54 the priest,3548 Ahimelech's288 son,1121 I pray thee,4994 bring me hither5066 the ephod.646 And Abiathar54 brought5066 thither 853 the ephod646 to413 David.1732

8  And David1732 inquired7592 at the LORD,3068 saying,559 Shall I pursue7291 after310 this2088 troop?1416 shall I overtake5381 them? And he answered559 him, Pursue:7291 for3588 thou shalt surely overtake5381 5381 them, and without fail recover5337 5337 all.

9  So David1732 went,1980 he1931 and the six8337 hundred3967 men376 that834 were with854 him, and came935 to5704 the brook5158 Besor,1308 where those that were left behind3498 stayed.5975

10  But David1732 pursued,7291 he1931 and four702 hundred3967 men:376 for two hundred3967 376 abode behind,5975 which834 were so faint6296 that they could not go over4480 5674 853 the brook5158 Besor.1308

11  And they found4672 an Egyptian376 4713 in the field,7704 and brought3947 him to413 David,1732 and gave5414 him bread,3899 and he did eat;398 and they made him drink8248 water;4325

12  And they gave5414 him a piece6400 of a cake of figs,1690 and two8147 clusters of raisins:6778 and when he had eaten,398 his spirit7307 came again7725 to413 him: for3588 he had eaten398 no3808 bread,3899 nor3808 drunk8354 any water,4325 three7969 days3117 and three7969 nights.3915

13  And David1732 said559 unto him, To whom4310 belongest thou?859 and whence335 4480 2088 art thou?859 And he said,559 I595 am a young man5288 of Egypt,4713 servant5650 to an Amalekite;376 6003 and my master113 left5800 me, because3588 three7969 days3117 ago I fell sick.2470

14  We587 made an invasion6584 upon the south5045 of the Cherethites,3774 and upon5921 the coast which834 belongeth to Judah,3063 and upon5921 the south5045 of Caleb;3612 and we burned8313 Ziklag6860 with fire.784

15  And David1732 said559 to413 him, Canst thou bring me down3381 to413 this2088 company?1416 And he said,559 Swear7650 unto me by God,430 that thou wilt neither518 kill4191 me, nor518 deliver5462 me into the hands3027 of my master,113 and I will bring thee down3381 to413 this2088 company.1416

16  And when he had brought him down,3381 behold,2009 they were spread abroad5203 upon5921 6440 all3605 the earth,776 eating398 and drinking,8354 and dancing,2287 because of all3605 the great1419 spoil7998 that834 they had taken3947 out of the land4480 776 of the Philistines,6430 and out of the land4480 776 of Judah.3063

17  And David1732 smote5221 them from the twilight4480 5399 even unto5704 the evening6153 of the next day:4283 and there escaped4422 not3808 a man376 of them, save3588 518 four702 hundred3967 young5288 men,376 which834 rode7392 upon5921 camels,1581 and fled.5127

18  And David1732 recovered5337 853 all3605 that834 the Amalekites6002 had carried away:3947 and David1732 rescued5337 his two8147 wives.802

19  And there was nothing3808 lacking5737 to them, neither4480 small6996 nor5704 great,1419 neither5704 sons1121 nor daughters,1323 neither spoil,4480 7998 nor5704 any3605 thing that834 they had taken3947 to them: David1732 recovered7725 all.3605

20  And David1732 took3947 853 all3605 the flocks6629 and the herds,1241 which they drove5090 before6440 those1931 other cattle,4735 and said,559 This2088 is David's1732 spoil.7998

21  And David1732 came935 to413 the two hundred3967 men,376 which834 were so faint6296 that they could not follow1980 310 David,1732 whom they had made also to abide3427 at the brook5158 Besor:1308 and they went forth3318 to meet7125 David,1732 and to meet7125 the people5971 that834 were with854 him: and when David1732 came near5066 to 853 the people,5971 he saluted7592 7965 them.

22  Then answered6030 all3605 the wicked7451 men376 and men of Belial,1100 of those4480 376 that834 went1980 with5973 David,1732 and said,559 Because3282 834 they went1980 not3808 with5973 us, we will not3808 give5414 them aught of the spoil4480 7998 that834 we have recovered,5337 save3588 518 to every man376 853 his wife802 and his children,1121 that they may lead them away,5090 and depart.1980

23  Then said559 David,1732 Ye shall not3808 do6213 so,3651 my brethren,251 with854 that which834 the LORD3068 hath given5414 us, who hath preserved8104 us, and delivered5414 853 the company1416 that came935 against5921 us into our hand.3027

24  For who4310 will hearken8085 unto you in this2088 matter?1697 but3588 as his part2506 is that goeth down3381 to the battle,4421 so shall his part2506 be that tarrieth3427 by5921 the stuff:3627 they shall part2505 alike.3162

25  And it was1961 so from that day4480 3117 1931 forward,4605 that he made7760 it a statute2706 and an ordinance4941 for Israel3478 unto5704 this2088 day.3117

26  And when David1732 came935 to413 Ziklag,6860 he sent7971 of the spoil4480 7998 unto the elders2205 of Judah,3063 even to his friends,7453 saying,559 Behold2009 a present1293 for you of the spoil4480 7998 of the enemies341 of the LORD;3068

27  To them which834 were in Bethel,1008 and to them which834 were in south5045 Ramoth,7418 and to them which834 were in Jattir,3492

28  And to them which834 were in Aroer,6177 and to them which834 were in Siphmoth,8224 and to them which834 were in Eshtemoa,851

29  And to them which834 were in Rachal,7403 and to them which834 were in the cities5892 of the Jerahmeelites,3397 and to them which834 were in the cities5892 of the Kenites,7017

30  And to them which834 were in Hormah,2767 and to them which834 were in Chor-ashan,3565 and to them which834 were in Athach,6269

31  And to them which834 were in Hebron,2275 and to all3605 the places4725 where834 8033 David1732 himself1931 and his men376 were wont to haunt.1980


1 καὶ ἐγενήθη εἰσελθόντος Δαυιδ καὶ τῶν ἀνδρῶν αὐτοῦ εἰς Σεκελακ τῇ ἡμέρᾳ τῇ τρίτῃ καὶ Αμαληκ ἐπέθετο ἐπὶ τὸν νότον καὶ ἐπὶ Σεκελακ καὶ ἐπάταξεν τὴν Σεκελακ καὶ ἐνεπύρισεν αὐτὴν ἐν πυρί

2 καὶ τὰς γυναῖκας καὶ πάντα τὰ ἐν αὐτῇ ἀπὸ μικροῦ ἕως μεγάλου οὐκ ἐθανάτωσαν ἄνδρα καὶ γυναῖκα ἀλλ᾽ ᾐχμαλώτευσαν καὶ ἀπῆλθον εἰς τὴν ὁδὸν αὐτῶν

3 καὶ ἦλθεν Δαυιδ καὶ οἱ ἄνδρες αὐτοῦ εἰς τὴν πόλιν καὶ ἰδοὺ ἐμπεπύρισται ἐν πυρί αἱ δὲ γυναῖκες αὐτῶν καὶ οἱ υἱοὶ αὐτῶν καὶ αἱ θυγατέρες αὐτῶν ᾐχμαλωτευμένοι

4 καὶ ἦρεν Δαυιδ καὶ οἱ ἄνδρες αὐτοῦ τὴν φωνὴν αὐτῶν καὶ ἔκλαυσαν ἕως ὅτου οὐκ ἦν ἐν αὐτοῖς ἰσχὺς ἔτι κλαίειν

5 καὶ ἀμφότεραι αἱ γυναῖκες Δαυιδ ᾐχμαλωτεύθησαν Αχινοομ ἡ Ιεζραηλῖτις καὶ Αβιγαια ἡ γυνὴ Ναβαλ τοῦ Καρμηλίου

6 καὶ ἐθλίβη Δαυιδ σφόδρα ὅτι εἶπεν ὁ λαὸς λιθοβολῆσαι αὐτόν ὅτι κατώδυνος ψυχὴ παντὸς τοῦ λαοῦ ἑκάστου ἐπὶ τοὺς υἱοὺς αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐπὶ τὰς θυγατέρας αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐκραταιώθη Δαυιδ ἐν κυρίῳ θεῷ αὐτοῦ

7 καὶ εἶπεν Δαυιδ πρὸς Αβιαθαρ τὸν ἱερέα υἱὸν Αχιμελεχ προσάγαγε τὸ εφουδ

8 καὶ ἐπηρώτησεν Δαυιδ διὰ τοῦ κυρίου λέγων εἰ καταδιώξω ὀπίσω τοῦ γεδδουρ τούτου εἰ καταλήμψομαι αὐτούς καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῷ καταδίωκε ὅτι καταλαμβάνων καταλήμψῃ καὶ ἐξαιρούμενος ἐξελῇ

9 καὶ ἐπορεύθη Δαυιδ αὐτὸς καὶ οἱ ἑξακόσιοι ἄνδρες μετ᾽ αὐτοῦ καὶ ἔρχονται ἕως τοῦ χειμάρρου Βοσορ καὶ οἱ περισσοὶ ἔστησαν

10 καὶ κατεδίωξεν ἐν τετρακοσίοις ἀνδράσιν ὑπέστησαν δὲ διακόσιοι ἄνδρες οἵτινες ἐκάθισαν πέραν τοῦ χειμάρρου τοῦ Βοσορ

11 καὶ εὑρίσκουσιν ἄνδρα Αἰγύπτιον ἐν ἀγρῷ καὶ λαμβάνουσιν αὐτὸν καὶ ἄγουσιν αὐτὸν πρὸς Δαυιδ ἐν ἀγρῷ καὶ διδόασιν αὐτῷ ἄρτον καὶ ἔφαγεν καὶ ἐπότισαν αὐτὸν ὕδωρ

12 καὶ διδόασιν αὐτῷ κλάσμα παλάθης καὶ ἔφαγεν καὶ κατέστη τὸ πνεῦμα αὐτοῦ ἐν αὐτῷ ὅτι οὐ βεβρώκει ἄρτον καὶ οὐ πεπώκει ὕδωρ τρεῖς ἡμέρας καὶ τρεῖς νύκτας

13 καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῷ Δαυιδ τίνος σὺ εἶ καὶ πόθεν εἶ καὶ εἶπεν τὸ παιδάριον τὸ Αἰγύπτιον ἐγώ εἰμι δοῦλος ἀνδρὸς Αμαληκίτου καὶ κατέλιπέν με ὁ κύριός μου ὅτι ἠνωχλήθην ἐγὼ σήμερον τριταῖος

14 καὶ ἡμεῖς ἐπεθέμεθα ἐπὶ νότον τοῦ Χολθι καὶ ἐπὶ τὰ τῆς Ιουδαίας μέρη καὶ ἐπὶ νότον Χελουβ καὶ τὴν Σεκελακ ἐνεπυρίσαμεν ἐν πυρί

15 καὶ εἶπεν πρὸς αὐτὸν Δαυιδ εἰ κατάξεις με ἐπὶ τὸ γεδδουρ τοῦτο καὶ εἶπεν ὄμοσον δή μοι κατὰ τοῦ θεοῦ μὴ θανατώσειν με καὶ μὴ παραδοῦναί με εἰς χεῖρας τοῦ κυρίου μου καὶ κατάξω σε ἐπὶ τὸ γεδδουρ τοῦτο

16 καὶ κατήγαγεν αὐτὸν ἐκεῖ καὶ ἰδοὺ οὗτοι διακεχυμένοι ἐπὶ πρόσωπον πάσης τῆς γῆς ἐσθίοντες καὶ πίνοντες καὶ ἑορτάζοντες ἐν πᾶσι τοῖς σκύλοις τοῖς μεγάλοις οἷς ἔλαβον ἐκ γῆς ἀλλοφύλων καὶ ἐκ γῆς Ιουδα

17 καὶ ἦλθεν ἐπ᾽ αὐτοὺς Δαυιδ καὶ ἐπάταξεν αὐτοὺς ἀπὸ ἑωσφόρου ἕως δείλης καὶ τῇ ἐπαύριον καὶ οὐκ ἐσώθη ἐξ αὐτῶν ἀνὴρ ὅτι ἀλλ᾽ ἢ τετρακόσια παιδάρια ἃ ἦν ἐπιβεβηκότα ἐπὶ τὰς καμήλους καὶ ἔφυγον

18 καὶ ἀφείλατο Δαυιδ πάντα ἃ ἔλαβον οἱ Αμαληκῖται καὶ ἀμφοτέρας τὰς γυναῖκας αὐτοῦ ἐξείλατο

19 καὶ οὐ διεφώνησεν αὐτοῖς ἀπὸ μικροῦ ἕως μεγάλου καὶ ἀπὸ τῶν σκύλων καὶ ἕως υἱῶν καὶ θυγατέρων καὶ ἕως πάντων ὧν ἔλαβον αὐτῶν τὰ πάντα ἐπέστρεψεν Δαυιδ

20 καὶ ἔλαβεν Δαυιδ πάντα τὰ ποίμνια καὶ τὰ βουκόλια καὶ ἀπήγαγεν ἔμπροσθεν τῶν σκύλων καὶ τοῖς σκύλοις ἐκείνοις ἐλέγετο ταῦτα τὰ σκῦλα Δαυιδ

21 καὶ παραγίνεται Δαυιδ πρὸς τοὺς διακοσίους ἄνδρας τοὺς ἐκλυθέντας τοῦ πορεύεσθαι ὀπίσω Δαυιδ καὶ ἐκάθισεν αὐτοὺς ἐν τῷ χειμάρρῳ τῷ Βοσορ καὶ ἐξῆλθον εἰς ἀπάντησιν Δαυιδ καὶ εἰς ἀπάντησιν τοῦ λαοῦ τοῦ μετ᾽ αὐτοῦ καὶ προσήγαγεν Δαυιδ ἕως τοῦ λαοῦ καὶ ἠρώτησαν αὐτὸν τὰ εἰς εἰρήνην

22 καὶ ἀπεκρίθη πᾶς ἀνὴρ λοιμὸς καὶ πονηρὸς τῶν ἀνδρῶν τῶν πολεμιστῶν τῶν πορευθέντων μετὰ Δαυιδ καὶ εἶπαν ὅτι οὐ κατεδίωξαν μεθ᾽ ἡμῶν οὐ δώσομεν αὐτοῖς ἐκ τῶν σκύλων ὧν ἐξειλάμεθα ὅτι ἀλλ᾽ ἢ ἕκαστος τὴν γυναῖκα αὐτοῦ καὶ τὰ τέκνα αὐτοῦ ἀπαγέσθωσαν καὶ ἀποστρεφέτωσαν

23 καὶ εἶπεν Δαυιδ οὐ ποιήσετε οὕτως μετὰ τὸ παραδοῦναι τὸν κύριον ἡμῖν καὶ φυλάξαι ἡμᾶς καὶ παρέδωκεν κύριος τὸν γεδδουρ τὸν ἐπερχόμενον ἐφ᾽ ἡμᾶς εἰς χεῖρας ἡμῶν

24 καὶ τίς ὑπακούσεται ὑμῶν τῶν λόγων τούτων ὅτι οὐχ ἧττον ὑμῶν εἰσιν διότι κατὰ τὴν μερίδα τοῦ καταβαίνοντος εἰς πόλεμον οὕτως ἔσται ἡ μερὶς τοῦ καθημένου ἐπὶ τὰ σκεύη κατὰ τὸ αὐτὸ μεριοῦνται

25 καὶ ἐγενήθη ἀπὸ τῆς ἡμέρας ἐκείνης καὶ ἐπάνω καὶ ἐγένετο εἰς πρόσταγμα καὶ εἰς δικαίωμα τῷ Ισραηλ ἕως τῆς σήμερον

26 καὶ ἦλθεν Δαυιδ εἰς Σεκελακ καὶ ἀπέστειλεν τοῖς πρεσβυτέροις Ιουδα τῶν σκύλων καὶ τοῖς πλησίον αὐτοῦ λέγων ἰδοὺ ἀπὸ τῶν σκύλων τῶν ἐχθρῶν κυρίου

27 τοῖς ἐν Βαιθσουρ καὶ τοῖς ἐν Ραμα νότου καὶ τοῖς ἐν Ιεθθορ

28 καὶ τοῖς ἐν Αροηρ καὶ τοῖς Αμμαδι καὶ τοῖς ἐν Σαφι καὶ τοῖς ἐν Εσθιε
καὶ τοῖς ἐν Γεθ καὶ τοῖς ἐν Κιναν καὶ τοῖς ἐν Σαφεκ καὶ τοῖς ἐν Θιμαθ

29 καὶ τοῖς ἐν Καρμήλῳ καὶ τοῖς ἐν ταῖς πόλεσιν τοῦ Ιεραμηλι καὶ τοῖς ἐν ταῖς πόλεσιν τοῦ Κενεζι

30 καὶ τοῖς ἐν Ιεριμουθ καὶ τοῖς ἐν Βηρσαβεε καὶ τοῖς ἐν Νοο

31 καὶ τοῖς ἐν Χεβρων καὶ εἰς πάντας τοὺς τόπους οὓς διῆλθεν Δαυιδ ἐκεῖ αὐτὸς καὶ οἱ ἄνδρες αὐτοῦ

1 Cumque venissent David et viri ejus in Siceleg die tertia, Amalecitæ impetum fecerant ex parte australi in Siceleg, et percusserant Siceleg, et succenderant eam igni.

2 Et captivas duxerant mulieres ex ea, a minimo usque ad magnum: et non interfecerant quemquam, sed secum duxerant, et pergebant itinere suo.

3 Cum ergo venissent David et viri ejus ad civitatem, et invenissent eam succensam igni, et uxores suas, et filios suos et filias, ductas esse captivas,

4 levaverunt David et populus qui erat cum eo voces suas, et planxerunt donec deficerent in eis lacrimæ.

5 Siquidem et duæ uxores David captivæ ductæ fuerant, Achinoam Jezrahelites, et Abigail uxor Nabal Carmeli.

6 Et contristatus est David valde: volebat enim eum populus lapidare, quia amara erat anima uniuscujusque viri super filiis suis et filiabus: confortatus est autem David in Domino Deo suo.

7 Et ait ad Abiathar sacerdotem filium Achimelech: Applica ad me ephod. Et applicavit Abiathar ephod ad David.

8 Et consuluit David Dominum, dicens: Persequar latrunculos hos, et comprehendam eos, an non? Dixitque ei Dominus: Persequere: absque dubio enim comprehendes eos, et excuties prædam.

9 Abiit ergo David, ipse et sexcenti viri qui erant cum eo, et venerunt usque ad torrentem Besor: et lassi quidam substiterunt.

10 Persecutus est autem David ipse, et quadringenti viri: substiterant enim ducenti, qui lassi transire non poterant torrentem Besor.

11 Et invenerunt virum ægyptium in agro, et adduxerunt eum ad David: dederuntque ei panem ut comederet, et biberet aquam,

12 sed et fragmen massæ caricarum, et duas ligaturas uvæ passæ. Quæ cum comedisset, reversus est spiritus ejus, et refocillatus est: non enim comederat panem, neque biberat aquam, tribus diebus et tribus noctibus.

13 Dixit itaque ei David: Cujus es tu? vel unde? et quo pergis? Qui ait: Puer ægyptius ego sum, servus viri Amalecitæ: dereliquit autem me dominus meus, quia ægrotare cœpi nudiustertius.

14 Siquidem nos erupimus ad australem plagam Cerethi, et contra Judam, et ad meridiem Caleb, et Siceleg succendimus igni.

15 Dixitque ei David: Potes me ducere ad cuneum istum? Qui ait: Jura mihi per Deum quod non occidas me, et non tradas me in manus domini mei, et ego ducam te ad cuneum istum. Et juravit ei David.

16 Qui cum duxisset eum, ecce illi discumbebant super faciem universæ terræ comedentes et bibentes, et quasi festum celebrantes diem, pro cuncta præda et spoliis quæ ceperant de terra Philisthiim et de terra Juda.

17 Et percussit eos David a vespere usque ad vesperam alterius diei, et non evasit ex eis quisquam, nisi quadringenti viri adolescentes, qui ascenderant camelos et fugerant.

18 Eruit ergo David omnia quæ tulerant Amalecitæ, et duas uxores suas eruit.

19 Nec defuit quidquam a parvo usque ad magnum, tam de filiis quam de filiabus, et de spoliis, et quæcumque rapuerant: omnia reduxit David.

20 Et tulit universos greges et armenta, et minavit ante faciem suam: dixeruntque: Hæc est præda David.

21 Venit autem David ad ducentos viros qui lassi substiterant, nec sequi potuerant David, et residere eos jusserat in torrente Besor: qui egressi sunt obviam David et populo qui erat cum eo. Accedens autem David ad populum, salutavit eos pacifice.

22 Respondensque omnis vir pessimus et iniquus de viris qui ierant cum David, dixit: Quia non venerunt nobiscum, non dabimus eis quidquam de præda quam eruimus: sed sufficiat unicuique uxor sua et filii: quos cum acceperint, recedant.

23 Dixit autem David: Non sic facietis, fratres mei, de his quæ tradidit nobis Dominus, et custodivit nos, et dedit latrunculos qui eruperant adversum nos, in manus nostras:

24 nec audiet vos quisquam super sermone hoc: æqua enim pars erit descendentis ad prælium, et remanentis ad sarcinas, et similiter divident.

25 Et factum est hoc ex die illa et deinceps, constitutum et præfinitum, et quasi lex in Israël usque in diem hanc.

26 Venit ergo David in Siceleg, et misit dona de præda senioribus Juda proximis suis, dicens: Accipite benedictionem de præda hostium Domini:

27 his qui erant in Bethel, et qui in Ramoth ad meridiem, et qui in Jether,

28 et qui in Aroër, et qui in Sephamoth, et qui in Esthamo,

29 et qui in Rachal, et qui in urbibus Jerameel, et qui in urbibus Ceni,

30 et qui in Arama, et qui in lacu Asan, et qui in Athach,

31 et qui in Hebron, et reliquis qui erant in his locis in quibus commoratus fuerat David, ipse et viri ejus.
