2 Samuel 5


1  Then came935 all3605 the tribes7626 of Israel3478 to413 David1732 unto Hebron,2275 and spoke,559 saying,559 Behold,2009 we587 are thy bone6106 and thy flesh.1320

2  Also1571 in time past,865 8032 when Saul7586 was1961 king4428 over5921 us, thou859 wast1961 he that leddest out3318 and broughtest935 853 in Israel:3478 and the LORD3068 said559 to thee Thou859 shalt feed7462 853 my people5971 853 Israel,3478 and thou859 shalt be1961 a captain5057 over5921 Israel.3478

3  So all3605 the elders2205 of Israel3478 came935 to413 the king4428 to Hebron;2275 and king4428 David1732 made3772 a league1285 with them in Hebron2275 before6440 the LORD:3068 and they anointed4886 853 David1732 king4428 over5921 Israel.3478

4  David1732 was thirty7970 years8141 old1121 when he began to reign,4427 and he reigned4427 forty705 years.8141

5  In Hebron2275 he reigned4427 over5921 Judah3063 seven7651 years8141 and six8337 months:2320 and in Jerusalem3389 he reigned4427 thirty7970 and three7969 years8141 over5921 all3605 Israel3478 and Judah.3063

6  And the king4428 and his men376 went1980 to Jerusalem3389 unto413 the Jebusites,2983 the inhabitants3427 of the land:776 which spoke559 unto David,1732 saying,559 Except3588 518 thou take away5493 the blind5787 and the lame,6455 thou shalt not3808 come in935 hither:2008 thinking,559 David1732 cannot3808 come in935 hither.2008

7  Nevertheless David1732 took3920 853 the stronghold4686 of Zion:6726 the same1931 is the city5892 of David.1732

8  And David1732 said559 on that1931 day,3117 Whosoever3605 getteth up5060 to the gutter,6794 and smiteth5221 the Jebusites,2983 and the lame6455 and the blind,5787 that are hated8130 of David's1732 soul,5315 he shall be chief and captain. Wherefore5921 3651 they said,559 The blind5787 and the lame6455 shall not3808 come935 into413 the house.1004

9  So David1732 dwelt3427 in the fort,4686 and called7121 it the city5892 of David.1732 And David1732 built1129 round about5439 from4480 Millo4407 and inward.1004

10  And David1732 went on,1980 1980 and grew great,1419 and the LORD3068 God430 of hosts6635 was with5973 him.

11  And Hiram2438 king4428 of Tyre6865 sent7971 messengers4397 to413 David,1732 and cedar730 trees,6086 and carpenters,2796 6086 and masons:2796 18 7023 and they built1129 David1732 a house.1004

12  And David1732 perceived3045 that3588 the LORD3068 had established3559 him king4428 over5921 Israel,3478 and that3588 he had exalted5375 his kingdom4467 for his people5971 Israel's3478 sake.5668

13  And David1732 took3947 him more5750 concubines6370 and wives802 out of Jerusalem,4480 3389 after310 he was come935 from Hebron:4480 2275 and there were yet5750 sons1121 and daughters1323 born3205 to David.1732

14  And these428 be the names8034 of those that were born3209 unto him in Jerusalem;3389 Shammua,8051 and Shobab,7727 and Nathan,5416 and Solomon,8010

15  Ibhar2984 also, and Elishua,474 and Nepheg,5298 and Japhia,3309

16  And Elishama,476 and Eliada,450 and Eliphalet.467

17  But when the Philistines6430 heard8085 that3588 they had anointed4886 853 David1732 king4428 over5921 Israel,3478 all3605 the Philistines6430 came up5927 to seek1245 853 David;1732 and David1732 heard8085 of it, and went down3381 to413 the hold.4686

18  The Philistines6430 also came935 and spread themselves5203 in the valley6010 of Rephaim.7497

19  And David1732 inquired7592 of the LORD,3068 saying,559 Shall I go up5927 to413 the Philistines?6430 wilt thou deliver5414 them into mine hand?3027 And the LORD3068 said559 unto413 David,1732 Go up:5927 for3588 I will doubtless deliver5414 5414 853 the Philistines6430 into thine hand.3027

20  And David1732 came935 to Baal-perazim,1188 and David1732 smote5221 them there,8033 and said,559 The LORD3068 hath broken forth upon6555 853 mine enemies341 before6440 me, as the breach6556 of waters.4325 Therefore5921 3651 he called7121 the name8034 of that1931 place4725 Baal-perazim.1188

21  And there8033 they left5800 853 their images,6091 and David1732 and his men376 burned5375 them.

22  And the Philistines6430 came up5927 yet5750 again,3254 and spread themselves5203 in the valley6010 of Rephaim.7497

23  And when David1732 inquired7592 of the LORD,3068 he said,559 Thou shalt not3808 go up;5927 but fetch a compass5437 413 behind310 them, and come935 upon them over against4480 4136 the mulberry trees.1057

24  And let it be,1961 when thou hearest8085 853 the sound6963 of a going6807 in the tops7218 of the mulberry trees,1057 that then227 thou shalt bestir2782 thyself: for3588 then227 shall the LORD3068 go out3318 before6440 thee, to smite5221 the host4264 of the Philistines.6430

25  And David1732 did6213 so,3651 as834 the LORD3068 had commanded6680 him; and smote5221 853 the Philistines6430 from Geba4480 1387 until thou come935 to Gazer.1507


1 καὶ παραγίνονται πᾶσαι αἱ φυλαὶ Ισραηλ πρὸς Δαυιδ εἰς Χεβρων καὶ εἶπαν αὐτῷ ἰδοὺ ὀστᾶ σου καὶ σάρκες σου ἡμεῖς

2 καὶ ἐχθὲς καὶ τρίτην ὄντος Σαουλ βασιλέως ἐφ᾽ ἡμῖν σὺ ἦσθα ὁ ἐξάγων καὶ εἰσάγων τὸν Ισραηλ καὶ εἶπεν κύριος πρὸς σέ σὺ ποιμανεῖς τὸν λαόν μου τὸν Ισραηλ καὶ σὺ ἔσει εἰς ἡγούμενον ἐπὶ τὸν Ισραηλ

3 καὶ ἔρχονται πάντες οἱ πρεσβύτεροι Ισραηλ πρὸς τὸν βασιλέα εἰς Χεβρων καὶ διέθετο αὐτοῖς ὁ βασιλεὺς Δαυιδ διαθήκην ἐν Χεβρων ἐνώπιον κυρίου καὶ χρίουσιν τὸν Δαυιδ εἰς βασιλέα ἐπὶ πάντα Ισραηλ

4 υἱὸς τριάκοντα ἐτῶν Δαυιδ ἐν τῷ βασιλεῦσαι αὐτὸν καὶ τεσσαράκοντα ἔτη ἐβασίλευσεν

5 ἑπτὰ ἔτη καὶ ἓξ μῆνας ἐβασίλευσεν ἐν Χεβρων ἐπὶ τὸν Ιουδαν καὶ τριάκοντα τρία ἔτη ἐβασίλευσεν ἐπὶ πάντα Ισραηλ καὶ Ιουδαν ἐν Ιερουσαλημ

6 καὶ ἀπῆλθεν Δαυιδ καὶ οἱ ἄνδρες αὐτοῦ εἰς Ιερουσαλημ πρὸς τὸν Ιεβουσαῖον τὸν κατοικοῦντα τὴν γῆν καὶ ἐρρέθη τῷ Δαυιδ οὐκ εἰσελεύσει ὧδε ὅτι ἀντέστησαν οἱ τυφλοὶ καὶ οἱ χωλοί λέγοντες ὅτι οὐκ εἰσελεύσεται Δαυιδ ὧδε

7 καὶ κατελάβετο Δαυιδ τὴν περιοχὴν Σιων αὕτη ἡ πόλις τοῦ Δαυιδ

8 καὶ εἶπεν Δαυιδ τῇ ἡμέρᾳ ἐκείνῃ πᾶς τύπτων Ιεβουσαῖον ἁπτέσθω ἐν παραξιφίδι καὶ τοὺς χωλοὺς καὶ τοὺς τυφλοὺς καὶ τοὺς μισοῦντας τὴν ψυχὴν Δαυιδ διὰ τοῦτο ἐροῦσιν τυφλοὶ καὶ χωλοὶ οὐκ εἰσελεύσονται εἰς οἶκον κυρίου

9 καὶ ἐκάθισεν Δαυιδ ἐν τῇ περιοχῇ καὶ ἐκλήθη αὕτη ἡ πόλις Δαυιδ καὶ ᾠκοδόμησεν τὴν πόλιν κύκλῳ ἀπὸ τῆς ἄκρας καὶ τὸν οἶκον αὐτοῦ

10 καὶ ἐπορεύετο Δαυιδ πορευόμενος καὶ μεγαλυνόμενος καὶ κύριος παντοκράτωρ μετ᾽ αὐτοῦ

11 καὶ ἀπέστειλεν Χιραμ βασιλεὺς Τύρου ἀγγέλους πρὸς Δαυιδ καὶ ξύλα κέδρινα καὶ τέκτονας ξύλων καὶ τέκτονας λίθων καὶ ᾠκοδόμησαν οἶκον τῷ Δαυιδ

12 καὶ ἔγνω Δαυιδ ὅτι ἡτοίμασεν αὐτὸν κύριος εἰς βασιλέα ἐπὶ Ισραηλ καὶ ὅτι ἐπήρθη ἡ βασιλεία αὐτοῦ διὰ τὸν λαὸν αὐτοῦ Ισραηλ

13 καὶ ἔλαβεν Δαυιδ ἔτι γυναῖκας καὶ παλλακὰς ἐξ Ιερουσαλημ μετὰ τὸ ἐλθεῖν αὐτὸν ἐκ Χεβρων καὶ ἐγένοντο τῷ Δαυιδ ἔτι υἱοὶ καὶ θυγατέρες

14 καὶ ταῦτα τὰ ὀνόματα τῶν γεννηθέντων αὐτῷ ἐν Ιερουσαλημ Σαμμους καὶ Σωβαβ καὶ Ναθαν καὶ Σαλωμων

15 καὶ Εβεαρ καὶ Ελισους καὶ Ναφεκ καὶ Ιεφιες

16 καὶ Ελισαμα καὶ Ελιδαε καὶ Ελιφαλαθ
Σαμαε Ιεσσιβαθ Ναθαν Γαλαμααν Ιεβααρ Θεησους Ελφαλατ Ναγεδ Ναφεκ Ιαναθα Λεασαμυς Βααλιμαθ Ελιφαλαθ

17 καὶ ἤκουσαν ἀλλόφυλοι ὅτι κέχρισται Δαυιδ βασιλεὺς ἐπὶ Ισραηλ καὶ ἀνέβησαν πάντες οἱ ἀλλόφυλοι ζητεῖν τὸν Δαυιδ καὶ ἤκουσεν Δαυιδ καὶ κατέβη εἰς τὴν περιοχήν

18 καὶ οἱ ἀλλόφυλοι παραγίνονται καὶ συνέπεσαν εἰς τὴν κοιλάδα τῶν τιτάνων

19 καὶ ἠρώτησεν Δαυιδ διὰ κυρίου λέγων εἰ ἀναβῶ πρὸς τοὺς ἀλλοφύλους καὶ παραδώσεις αὐτοὺς εἰς τὰς χεῖράς μου καὶ εἶπεν κύριος πρὸς Δαυιδ ἀνάβαινε ὅτι παραδιδοὺς παραδώσω τοὺς ἀλλοφύλους εἰς τὰς χεῖράς σου

20 καὶ ἦλθεν Δαυιδ ἐκ τῶν ἐπάνω διακοπῶν καὶ ἔκοψεν τοὺς ἀλλοφύλους ἐκεῖ καὶ εἶπεν Δαυιδ διέκοψεν κύριος τοὺς ἐχθρούς μου τοὺς ἀλλοφύλους ἐνώπιον ἐμοῦ ὡς διακόπτεται ὕδατα διὰ τοῦτο ἐκλήθη τὸ ὄνομα τοῦ τόπου ἐκείνου ἐπάνω διακοπῶν

21 καὶ καταλιμπάνουσιν ἐκεῖ τοὺς θεοὺς αὐτῶν καὶ ἐλάβοσαν αὐτοὺς Δαυιδ καὶ οἱ ἄνδρες οἱ μετ᾽ αὐτοῦ

22 καὶ προσέθεντο ἔτι ἀλλόφυλοι τοῦ ἀναβῆναι καὶ συνέπεσαν ἐν τῇ κοιλάδι τῶν τιτάνων

23 καὶ ἐπηρώτησεν Δαυιδ διὰ κυρίου καὶ εἶπεν κύριος οὐκ ἀναβήσει εἰς συνάντησιν αὐτῶν ἀποστρέφου ἀπ᾽ αὐτῶν καὶ παρέσει αὐτοῖς πλησίον τοῦ κλαυθμῶνος

24 καὶ ἔσται ἐν τῷ ἀκοῦσαί σε τὴν φωνὴν τοῦ συγκλεισμοῦ τοῦ ἄλσους τοῦ κλαυθμῶνος τότε καταβήσει πρὸς αὐτούς ὅτι τότε ἐξελεύσεται κύριος ἔμπροσθέν σου κόπτειν ἐν τῷ πολέμῳ τῶν ἀλλοφύλων

25 καὶ ἐποίησεν Δαυιδ καθὼς ἐνετείλατο αὐτῷ κύριος καὶ ἐπάταξεν τοὺς ἀλλοφύλους ἀπὸ Γαβαων ἕως τῆς γῆς Γαζηρα

1 Et venerunt universæ tribus Israël ad David in Hebron, dicentes: Ecce nos os tuum et caro tua sumus.

2 Sed et heri et nudiustertius cum esset Saul rex super nos, tu eras educens et reducens Israël: dixit autem Dominus ad te: Tu pasces populum meum Israël, et tu eris dux super Israël.

3 Venerunt quoque et seniores Israël ad regem in Hebron, et percussit cum eis rex David fœdus in Hebron coram Domino: unxeruntque David in regem super Israël.

4 Filius triginta annorum erat David cum regnare cœpisset, et quadraginta annis regnavit.

5 In Hebron regnavit super Judam septem annis et sex mensibus: in Jerusalem autem regnavit triginta tribus annis super omnem Israël et Judam.

6 Et abiit rex, et omnes viri qui erant cum eo, in Jerusalem, ad Jebusæum habitatorem terræ: dictumque est David ab eis: Non ingredieris huc, nisi abstuleris cæcos et claudos dicentes: Non ingredietur David huc.

7 Cepit autem David arcem Sion: hæc est civitas David.

8 Proposuerat enim David in die illa præmium, qui percussisset Jebusæum, et tetigisset domatum fistulas, et abstulisset cæcos et claudos odientes animam David. Idcirco dicitur in proverbio: Cæcus et claudus non intrabunt in templum.

9 Habitavit autem David in arce, et vocavit eam civitatem David: et ædificavit per gyrum a Mello et intrinsecus.

10 Et ingrediebatur proficiens atque succrescens, et Dominus Deus exercituum erat cum eo.

11 Misit quoque Hiram rex Tyri nuntios ad David, et ligna cedrina, et artifices lignorum, artificesque lapidum ad parietes: et ædificaverunt domum David.

12 Et cognovit David quoniam confirmasset eum Dominus regem super Israël, et quoniam exaltasset regnum ejus super populum suum Israël.

13 Accepit ergo David adhuc concubinas et uxores de Jerusalem, postquam venerat de Hebron: natique sunt David et alii filii et filiæ:

14 et hæc nomina eorum, qui nati sunt ei in Jerusalem: Samua, et Sobab, et Nathan, et Salomon,

15 et Jebahar, et Elisua, et Nepheg,

16 et Japhia, et Elisama, et Elioda, et Eliphaleth.

17 Audierunt ergo Philisthiim quod unxissent David in regem super Israël, et ascenderunt universi ut quærerent David: quod cum audisset David, descendit in præsidium.

18 Philisthiim autem venientes diffusi sunt in valle Raphaim.

19 Et consuluit David Dominum, dicens: Si ascendam ad Philisthiim? et si dabis eos in manu mea? Et dixit Dominus ad David: Ascende, quia tradens dabo Philisthiim in manu tua.

20 Venit ergo David in Baal Pharasim: et percussit eos ibi, et dixit: Divisit Dominus inimicos meos coram me, sicut dividuntur aquæ. Propterea vocatum est nomen loci illius, Baal Pharasim.

21 Et reliquerunt ibi sculptilia sua, quæ tulit David et viri ejus.

22 Et addiderunt adhuc Philisthiim ut ascenderent, et diffusi sunt in valle Raphaim.

23 Consuluit autem David Dominum: Si ascendam contra Philisthæos, et tradas eos in manus meas? Qui respondit: Non ascendas contra eos, sed gyra post tergum eorum, et venies ad eos ex adverso pyrorum.

24 Et cum audieris sonitum gradientis in cacumine pyrorum, tunc inibis prælium: quia tunc egredietur Dominus ante faciem tuam, ut percutiat castra Philisthiim.

25 Fecit itaque David sicut præceperat ei Dominus, et percussit Philisthiim de Gabaa usque dum venias Gezer.
