2 Samuel 19


1  And it was told5046 Joab,3097 Behold,2009 the king4428 weepeth1058 and mourneth56 for5921 Absalom.53

2  And the victory8668 that1961 day3117 was turned into mourning60 unto all3605 the people:5971 for3588 the people5971 heard8085 say559 that1931 day3117 how the king4428 was grieved6087 for5921 his son.1121

3  And the people5971 got935 them by stealth1589 that1931 day3117 into the city,5892 as834 people5971 being ashamed3637 steal away1589 when they flee5127 in battle.4421

4  But the king4428 covered3813 853 his face,6440 and the king4428 cried2199 with a loud1419 voice,6963 O my son1121 Absalom,53 O Absalom,53 my son,1121 my son!1121

5  And Joab3097 came935 into the house1004 to413 the king,4428 and said,559 Thou hast shamed3001 this day3117 853 the faces6440 of all3605 thy servants,5650 which this day3117 have saved4422 853 thy life,5315 and the lives5315 of thy sons1121 and of thy daughters,1323 and the lives5315 of thy wives,802 and the lives5315 of thy concubines;6370

6  In that thou lovest157 853 thine enemies,8130 and hatest8130 853 thy friends.157 For3588 thou hast declared5046 this day,3117 that3588 thou regardest neither369 princes8269 nor servants:5650 for3588 this day3117 I perceive,3045 that3588 if3863 Absalom53 had lived,2416 and all3605 we had died4191 this day,3117 then227 it had pleased thee well.5869 3477

7  Now6258 therefore arise,6965 go forth,3318 and speak1696 comfortably5921 3820 unto thy servants:5650 for3588 I swear7650 by the LORD,3068 if3588 thou go not forth,369 3318 there will not518 tarry3885 one376 with854 thee this night:3915 and that2063 will be worse7489 unto thee than all4480 3605 the evil7451 that834 befell935 5921 thee from thy youth4480 5271 until5704 now.6258

8  Then the king4428 arose,6965 and sat3427 in the gate.8179 And they told5046 unto all3605 the people,5971 saying,559 Behold,2009 the king4428 doth sit3427 in the gate.8179 And all3605 the people5971 came935 before6440 the king:4428 for Israel3478 had fled5127 every man376 to his tent.168

9  And all3605 the people5971 were1961 at strife1777 throughout all3605 the tribes7626 of Israel,3478 saying,559 The king4428 saved5337 us out of the hand4480 3709 of our enemies,341 and he1931 delivered4422 us out of the hand4480 3709 of the Philistines;6430 and now6258 he is fled1272 out of4480 the land776 for4480 5921 Absalom.53

10  And Absalom,53 whom834 we anointed4886 over5921 us, is dead4191 in battle.4421 Now6258 therefore why4100 speak2790 ye859 not a word of bringing7725 853 the king4428 back?

11  And king4428 David1732 sent7971 to413 Zadok6659 and to413 Abiathar54 the priests,3548 saying,559 Speak1696 unto413 the elders2205 of Judah,3063 saying,559 Why4100 are1961 ye the last314 to bring7725 853 the king4428 back to413 his house?1004 seeing the speech1697 of all3605 Israel3478 is come935 to413 the king,4428 even to413 his house.1004

12  Ye859 are my brethren,251 ye859 are my bones6106 and my flesh:1320 wherefore4100 then are1961 ye the last314 to bring back7725 853 the king?4428

13  And say559 ye to Amasa,6021 Art thou859 not3808 of my bone,6106 and of my flesh?1320 God430 do6213 so3541 to me, and more3254 also,3541 if518 thou be1961 not3808 captain8269 of the host6635 before6440 me continually3605 3117 in the room8478 of Joab.3097

14  And he bowed5186 853 the heart3824 of all3605 the men376 of Judah,3063 even as the heart of one259 man;376 so that they sent7971 this word unto413 the king,4428 Return7725 thou,859 and all3605 thy servants.5650

15  So the king4428 returned,7725 and came935 to5704 Jordan.3383 And Judah3063 came935 to Gilgal,1537 to go1980 to meet7125 the king,4428 to conduct the king over5674 853 4428 853 Jordan.3383

16  And Shimei8096 the son1121 of Gera,1617 a Benjamite,1145 which834 was of Bahurim,4480 980 hasted4116 and came down3381 with5973 the men376 of Judah3063 to meet7125 king4428 David.1732

17  And there were a thousand505 men376 of Benjamin4480 1144 with5973 him, and Ziba6717 the servant5288 of the house1004 of Saul,7586 and his fifteen2568 6240 sons1121 and his twenty6242 servants5650 with854 him; and they went over6743 Jordan3383 before6440 the king.4428

18  And there went over5674 a ferry boat5679 to carry over5674 853 the king's4428 household,1004 and to do6213 what he thought5869 good.2896 And Shimei8096 the son1121 of Gera1617 fell down5307 before6440 the king,4428 as he was come over5674 Jordan;3383

19  And said559 unto413 the king,4428 Let not408 my lord113 impute2803 iniquity5771 unto me, neither408 do thou remember2142 853 that which834 thy servant5650 did perversely5753 the day3117 that834 my lord113 the king4428 went out3318 of Jerusalem,4480 3389 that the king4428 should take7760 it to413 his heart.3820

20  For3588 thy servant5650 doth know3045 that3588 I589 have sinned:2398 therefore, behold,2009 I am come935 the first7223 this day3117 of all3605 the house1004 of Joseph3130 to go down3381 to meet7125 my lord113 the king.4428

21  But Abishai52 the son1121 of Zeruiah6870 answered6030 and said,559 Shall not3808 Shimei8096 be put to death4191 for8478 this,2063 because3588 he cursed7043 853 the LORD's3068 anointed?4899

22  And David1732 said,559 What4100 have I to do with you, ye sons1121 of Zeruiah,6870 that3588 ye should this day3117 be1961 adversaries7854 unto me? shall there any man376 be put to death4191 this day3117 in Israel?3478 for3588 do not3808 I know3045 that3588 I589 am this day3117 king4428 over5921 Israel?3478

23  Therefore the king4428 said559 unto413 Shimei,8096 Thou shalt not3808 die.4191 And the king4428 swore7650 unto him.

24  And Mephibosheth4648 the son1121 of Saul7586 came down3381 to meet7125 the king,4428 and had neither3808 dressed6213 his feet,7272 nor3808 trimmed6213 his beard,8222 nor3808 washed3526 his clothes,899 from4480 the day3117 the king4428 departed1980 until5704 the day3117 he came935 again in peace.7965

25  And it came to pass,1961 when3588 he was come935 to Jerusalem3389 to meet7125 the king,4428 that the king4428 said559 unto him, Wherefore4100 wentest1980 not3808 thou with5973 me, Mephibosheth?4648

26  And he answered,559 My lord,113 O king,4428 my servant5650 deceived7411 me: for3588 thy servant5650 said,559 I will saddle2280 me an ass,2543 that I may ride7392 thereon,5921 and go1980 to854 the king;4428 because3588 thy servant5650 is lame.6455

27  And he hath slandered7270 thy servant5650 unto413 my lord113 the king;4428 but my lord113 the king4428 is as an angel4397 of God:430 do6213 therefore what is good2896 in thine eyes.5869

28  For3588 all3605 of my father's1 house1004 were1961 but3588 518 dead4194 men376 before6440 my lord113 the king:4428 yet didst thou set7896 853 thy servant5650 among them that did eat398 at thine own table.7979 What4100 right6666 therefore have3426 I yet5759 to cry2199 any more5750 unto413 the king?4428

29  And the king4428 said559 unto him, Why4100 speakest1696 thou any more5750 of thy matters?1697 I have said,559 Thou859 and Ziba6717 divide2505 853 the land.7704

30  And Mephibosheth4648 said559 unto413 the king,4428 Yea,1571 let him take3947 853 all,3605 forasmuch310 834 as my lord113 the king4428 is come again935 in peace7965 unto413 his own house.1004

31  And Barzillai1271 the Gileadite1569 came down3381 from Rogelim,4480 7274 and went over5674 Jordan3383 with854 the king,4428 to conduct him over7971 853 Jordan.3383

32  Now Barzillai1271 was a very3966 aged2204 man, even fourscore8084 years8141 old:1121 and he1931 had provided 853 the king4428 of sustenance3557 while he lay7871 at Mahanaim;4266 for3588 he1931 was a very3966 great1419 man.376

33  And the king4428 said559 unto413 Barzillai,1271 Come5674 thou859 over with854 me, and I will feed3557 thee with5973 me in Jerusalem.3389

34  And Barzillai1271 said559 unto413 the king,4428 How4100 long3117 8141 have I to live,2416 that3588 I should go up5927 with854 the king4428 unto Jerusalem?3389

35  I595 am this day3117 fourscore8084 years8141 old:1121 and can I discern3045 between996 good2896 and evil?7451 can518 thy servant5650 taste2938 853 what834 I eat398 or what834 I drink?8354 can518 I hear8085 any more5750 the voice6963 of singing men7891 and singing women?7891 wherefore4100 then should thy servant5650 be1961 yet5750 a burden4853 unto413 my lord113 the king?4428

36  Thy servant5650 will go a little way over5674 4592 853 Jordan3383 with854 the king:4428 and why4100 should the king4428 recompense1580 it me with such2063 a reward?1578

37  Let thy servant,5650 I pray thee,4994 turn back again,7725 that I may die4191 in mine own city,5892 and be buried by5973 the grave6913 of my father1 and of my mother.517 But behold2009 thy servant5650 Chimham;3643 let him go over5674 with5973 my lord113 the king;4428 and do6213 to him 853 what834 shall seem5869 good2896 unto thee.

38  And the king4428 answered,559 Chimham3643 shall go over5674 with854 me, and I589 will do6213 to him 853 that which shall seem5869 good2896 unto thee: and whatsoever834 3605 thou shalt require977 of5921 me, that will I do6213 for thee.

39  And all3605 the people5971 went over5674 853 Jordan.3383 And when the king4428 was come over,5674 the king4428 kissed5401 Barzillai,1271 and blessed1288 him; and he returned7725 unto his own place.4725

40  Then the king4428 went on5674 to Gilgal,1537 and Chimham3643 went on5674 with5973 him: and all3605 the people5971 of Judah3063 conducted5674 853 the king,4428 and also1571 half2677 the people5971 of Israel.3478

41  And, behold,2009 all3605 the men376 of Israel3478 came935 to413 the king,4428 and said559 unto413 the king,4428 Why4069 have our brethren251 the men376 of Judah3063 stolen thee away,1589 and have brought5674 853 the king,4428 and his household,1004 and all3605 David's1732 men376 with5973 him, over 853 Jordan?3383

42  And all3605 the men376 of Judah3063 answered6030 5921 the men376 of Israel,3478 Because3588 the king4428 is near of kin7138 to413 us: wherefore4100 2088 then be ye angry2734 for5921 this2088 matter?1697 have we eaten at all398 398 of4480 the king's4428 cost? or518 hath he given us any gift?5379 5375

43  And the men376 of Israel3478 answered6030 853 the men376 of Judah,3063 and said,559 We have ten6235 parts3027 in the king,4428 and we589 have also1571 more right in David1732 than4480 ye: why4069 then did ye despise7043 us, that our advice1697 should not3808 be1961 first7223 had in bringing back7725 853 our king?4428 And the words1697 of the men376 of Judah3063 were fiercer7185 than the words4480 1697 of the men376 of Israel.3478


1 καὶ ἐταράχθη ὁ βασιλεὺς καὶ ἀνέβη εἰς τὸ ὑπερῷον τῆς πύλης καὶ ἔκλαυσεν καὶ οὕτως εἶπεν ἐν τῷ πορεύεσθαι αὐτόν υἱέ μου Αβεσσαλωμ υἱέ μου υἱέ μου Αβεσσαλωμ τίς δῴη τὸν θάνατόν μου ἀντὶ σοῦ ἐγὼ ἀντὶ σοῦ Αβεσσαλωμ υἱέ μου υἱέ μου

2 καὶ ἀνηγγέλη τῷ Ιωαβ λέγοντες ἰδοὺ ὁ βασιλεὺς κλαίει καὶ πενθεῖ ἐπὶ Αβεσσαλωμ

3 καὶ ἐγένετο ἡ σωτηρία ἐν τῇ ἡμέρᾳ ἐκείνῃ εἰς πένθος παντὶ τῷ λαῷ ὅτι ἤκουσεν ὁ λαὸς ἐν τῇ ἡμέρᾳ ἐκείνῃ λέγων ὅτι λυπεῖται ὁ βασιλεὺς ἐπὶ τῷ υἱῷ αὐτοῦ

4 καὶ διεκλέπτετο ὁ λαὸς ἐν τῇ ἡμέρᾳ ἐκείνῃ τοῦ εἰσελθεῖν εἰς τὴν πόλιν καθὼς διακλέπτεται ὁ λαὸς οἱ αἰσχυνόμενοι ἐν τῷ αὐτοὺς φεύγειν ἐν τῷ πολέμῳ

5 καὶ ὁ βασιλεὺς ἔκρυψεν τὸ πρόσωπον αὐτοῦ καὶ ἔκραξεν ὁ βασιλεὺς φωνῇ μεγάλῃ λέγων υἱέ μου Αβεσσαλωμ Αβεσσαλωμ υἱέ μου

6 καὶ εἰσῆλθεν Ιωαβ πρὸς τὸν βασιλέα εἰς τὸν οἶκον καὶ εἶπεν κατῄσχυνας σήμερον τὸ πρόσωπον πάντων τῶν δούλων σου τῶν ἐξαιρουμένων σε σήμερον καὶ τὴν ψυχὴν τῶν υἱῶν σου καὶ τῶν θυγατέρων σου καὶ τὴν ψυχὴν τῶν γυναικῶν σου καὶ τῶν παλλακῶν σου

7 τοῦ ἀγαπᾶν τοὺς μισοῦντάς σε καὶ μισεῖν τοὺς ἀγαπῶντάς σε καὶ ἀνήγγειλας σήμερον ὅτι οὔκ εἰσιν οἱ ἄρχοντές σου οὐδὲ παῖδες ὅτι ἔγνωκα σήμερον ὅτι εἰ Αβεσσαλωμ ἔζη πάντες ἡμεῖς σήμερον νεκροί ὅτι τότε τὸ εὐθὲς ἦν ἐν ὀφθαλμοῖς σου

8 καὶ νῦν ἀναστὰς ἔξελθε καὶ λάλησον εἰς τὴν καρδίαν τῶν δούλων σου ὅτι ἐν κυρίῳ ὤμοσα ὅτι εἰ μὴ ἐκπορεύσῃ σήμερον εἰ αὐλισθήσεται ἀνὴρ μετὰ σοῦ τὴν νύκτα ταύτην καὶ ἐπίγνωθι σεαυτῷ καὶ κακόν σοι τοῦτο ὑπὲρ πᾶν τὸ κακὸν τὸ ἐπελθόν σοι ἐκ νεότητός σου ἕως τοῦ νῦν

9 καὶ ἀνέστη ὁ βασιλεὺς καὶ ἐκάθισεν ἐν τῇ πύλῃ καὶ πᾶς ὁ λαὸς ἀνήγγειλαν λέγοντες ἰδοὺ ὁ βασιλεὺς κάθηται ἐν τῇ πύλῃ καὶ εἰσῆλθεν πᾶς ὁ λαὸς κατὰ πρόσωπον τοῦ βασιλέως καὶ Ισραηλ ἔφυγεν ἀνὴρ εἰς τὰ σκηνώματα αὐτοῦ

10 καὶ ἦν πᾶς ὁ λαὸς κρινόμενος ἐν πάσαις φυλαῖς Ισραηλ λέγοντες ὁ βασιλεὺς Δαυιδ ἐρρύσατο ἡμᾶς ἀπὸ πάντων τῶν ἐχθρῶν ἡμῶν καὶ αὐτὸς ἐξείλατο ἡμᾶς ἐκ χειρὸς ἀλλοφύλων καὶ νῦν πέφευγεν ἀπὸ τῆς γῆς καὶ ἀπὸ τῆς βασιλείας αὐτοῦ ἀπὸ Αβεσσαλωμ

11 καὶ Αβεσσαλωμ ὃν ἐχρίσαμεν ἐφ᾽ ἡμῶν ἀπέθανεν ἐν τῷ πολέμῳ καὶ νῦν ἵνα τί ὑμεῖς κωφεύετε τοῦ ἐπιστρέψαι τὸν βασιλέα καὶ τὸ ῥῆμα παντὸς Ισραηλ ἦλθεν πρὸς τὸν βασιλέα

12 καὶ ὁ βασιλεὺς Δαυιδ ἀπέστειλεν πρὸς Σαδωκ καὶ πρὸς Αβιαθαρ τοὺς ἱερεῖς λέγων λαλήσατε πρὸς τοὺς πρεσβυτέρους Ιουδα λέγοντες ἵνα τί γίνεσθε ἔσχατοι τοῦ ἐπιστρέψαι τὸν βασιλέα εἰς τὸν οἶκον αὐτοῦ καὶ λόγος παντὸς Ισραηλ ἦλθεν πρὸς τὸν βασιλέα

13 ἀδελφοί μου ὑμεῖς ὀστᾶ μου καὶ σάρκες μου ὑμεῖς καὶ ἵνα τί γίνεσθε ἔσχατοι τοῦ ἐπιστρέψαι τὸν βασιλέα εἰς τὸν οἶκον αὐτοῦ

14 καὶ τῷ Αμεσσαϊ ἐρεῖτε οὐχὶ ὀστοῦν μου καὶ σάρξ μου σύ καὶ νῦν τάδε ποιήσαι μοι ὁ θεὸς καὶ τάδε προσθείη εἰ μὴ ἄρχων δυνάμεως ἔσῃ ἐνώπιον ἐμοῦ πάσας τὰς ἡμέρας ἀντὶ Ιωαβ

15 καὶ ἔκλινεν τὴν καρδίαν παντὸς ἀνδρὸς Ιουδα ὡς ἀνδρὸς ἑνός καὶ ἀπέστειλαν πρὸς τὸν βασιλέα λέγοντες ἐπιστράφητι σὺ καὶ πάντες οἱ δοῦλοί σου

16 καὶ ἐπέστρεψεν ὁ βασιλεὺς καὶ ἦλθεν ἕως τοῦ Ιορδάνου καὶ ἄνδρες Ιουδα ἦλθαν εἰς Γαλγαλα τοῦ πορεύεσθαι εἰς ἀπαντὴν τοῦ βασιλέως διαβιβάσαι τὸν βασιλέα τὸν Ιορδάνην

17 καὶ ἐτάχυνεν Σεμεϊ υἱὸς Γηρα υἱοῦ τοῦ Ιεμενι ἐκ Βαουριμ καὶ κατέβη μετὰ ἀνδρὸς Ιουδα εἰς ἀπαντὴν τοῦ βασιλέως Δαυιδ

18 καὶ χίλιοι ἄνδρες μετ᾽ αὐτοῦ ἐκ τοῦ Βενιαμιν καὶ Σιβα τὸ παιδάριον τοῦ οἴκου Σαουλ καὶ δέκα πέντε υἱοὶ αὐτοῦ μετ᾽ αὐτοῦ καὶ εἴκοσι δοῦλοι αὐτοῦ μετ᾽ αὐτοῦ καὶ κατεύθυναν τὸν Ιορδάνην ἔμπροσθεν τοῦ βασιλέως

19 καὶ ἐλειτούργησαν τὴν λειτουργίαν τοῦ διαβιβάσαι τὸν βασιλέα καὶ διέβη ἡ διάβασις ἐξεγεῖραι τὸν οἶκον τοῦ βασιλέως καὶ τοῦ ποιῆσαι τὸ εὐθὲς ἐν ὀφθαλμοῖς αὐτοῦ καὶ Σεμεϊ υἱὸς Γηρα ἔπεσεν ἐπὶ πρόσωπον αὐτοῦ ἐνώπιον τοῦ βασιλέως διαβαίνοντος αὐτοῦ τὸν Ιορδάνην

20 καὶ εἶπεν πρὸς τὸν βασιλέα μὴ διαλογισάσθω ὁ κύριός μου ἀνομίαν καὶ μὴ μνησθῇς ὅσα ἠδίκησεν ὁ παῖς σου ἐν τῇ ἡμέρᾳ ᾗ ὁ κύριός μου ὁ βασιλεὺς ἐξεπορεύετο ἐξ Ιερουσαλημ τοῦ θέσθαι τὸν βασιλέα εἰς τὴν καρδίαν αὐτοῦ

21 ὅτι ἔγνω ὁ δοῦλός σου ὅτι ἐγὼ ἥμαρτον καὶ ἰδοὺ ἐγὼ ἦλθον σήμερον πρότερος παντὸς οἴκου Ιωσηφ τοῦ καταβῆναι εἰς ἀπαντὴν τοῦ κυρίου μου τοῦ βασιλέως

22 καὶ ἀπεκρίθη Αβεσσα υἱὸς Σαρουιας καὶ εἶπεν μὴ ἀντὶ τούτου οὐ θανατωθήσεται Σεμεϊ ὅτι κατηράσατο τὸν χριστὸν κυρίου

23 καὶ εἶπεν Δαυιδ τί ἐμοὶ καὶ ὑμῖν υἱοὶ Σαρουιας ὅτι γίνεσθέ μοι σήμερον εἰς ἐπίβουλον σήμερον οὐ θανατωθήσεταί τις ἀνὴρ ἐξ Ισραηλ ὅτι οὐκ οἶδα εἰ σήμερον βασιλεύω ἐγὼ ἐπὶ τὸν Ισραηλ

24 καὶ εἶπεν ὁ βασιλεὺς πρὸς Σεμεϊ οὐ μὴ ἀποθάνῃς καὶ ὤμοσεν αὐτῷ ὁ βασιλεύς

25 καὶ Μεμφιβοσθε υἱὸς Ιωναθαν υἱοῦ Σαουλ κατέβη εἰς ἀπαντὴν τοῦ βασιλέως καὶ οὐκ ἐθεράπευσεν τοὺς πόδας αὐτοῦ οὐδὲ ὠνυχίσατο οὐδὲ ἐποίησεν τὸν μύστακα αὐτοῦ καὶ τὰ ἱμάτια αὐτοῦ οὐκ ἔπλυνεν ἀπὸ τῆς ἡμέρας ἧς ἀπῆλθεν ὁ βασιλεύς ἕως τῆς ἡμέρας ἧς αὐτὸς παρεγένετο ἐν εἰρήνῃ

26 καὶ ἐγένετο ὅτε εἰσῆλθεν εἰς Ιερουσαλημ εἰς ἀπάντησιν τοῦ βασιλέως καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῷ ὁ βασιλεύς τί ὅτι οὐκ ἐπορεύθης μετ᾽ ἐμοῦ Μεμφιβοσθε

27 καὶ εἶπεν πρὸς αὐτὸν Μεμφιβοσθε κύριέ μου βασιλεῦ ὁ δοῦλός μου παρελογίσατό με ὅτι εἶπεν ὁ παῖς σου αὐτῷ ἐπίσαξόν μοι τὴν ὄνον καὶ ἐπιβῶ ἐπ᾽ αὐτὴν καὶ πορεύσομαι μετὰ τοῦ βασιλέως ὅτι χωλὸς ὁ δοῦλός σου

28 καὶ μεθώδευσεν ἐν τῷ δούλῳ σου πρὸς τὸν κύριόν μου τὸν βασιλέα καὶ ὁ κύριός μου ὁ βασιλεὺς ὡς ἄγγελος τοῦ θεοῦ καὶ ποίησον τὸ ἀγαθὸν ἐν ὀφθαλμοῖς σου

29 ὅτι οὐκ ἦν πᾶς ὁ οἶκος τοῦ πατρός μου ἀλλ᾽ ἢ ὅτι ἄνδρες θανάτου τῷ κυρίῳ μου τῷ βασιλεῖ καὶ ἔθηκας τὸν δοῦλόν σου ἐν τοῖς ἐσθίουσιν τὴν τράπεζάν σου καὶ τί ἐστίν μοι ἔτι δικαίωμα καὶ τοῦ κεκραγέναι με ἔτι πρὸς τὸν βασιλέα

30 καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῷ ὁ βασιλεύς ἵνα τί λαλεῖς ἔτι τοὺς λόγους σου εἶπον σὺ καὶ Σιβα διελεῖσθε τὸν ἀγρόν

31 καὶ εἶπεν Μεμφιβοσθε πρὸς τὸν βασιλέα καί γε τὰ πάντα λαβέτω μετὰ τὸ παραγενέσθαι τὸν κύριόν μου τὸν βασιλέα ἐν εἰρήνῃ εἰς τὸν οἶκον αὐτοῦ

32 καὶ Βερζελλι ὁ Γαλααδίτης κατέβη ἐκ Ρωγελλιμ καὶ διέβη μετὰ τοῦ βασιλέως τὸν Ιορδάνην ἐκπέμψαι αὐτὸν τὸν Ιορδάνην

33 καὶ Βερζελλι ἀνὴρ πρεσβύτερος σφόδρα υἱὸς ὀγδοήκοντα ἐτῶν καὶ αὐτὸς διέθρεψεν τὸν βασιλέα ἐν τῷ οἰκεῖν αὐτὸν ἐν Μαναϊμ ὅτι ἀνὴρ μέγας ἐστὶν σφόδρα

34 καὶ εἶπεν ὁ βασιλεὺς πρὸς Βερζελλι σὺ διαβήσῃ μετ᾽ ἐμοῦ καὶ διαθρέψω τὸ γῆράς σου μετ᾽ ἐμοῦ ἐν Ιερουσαλημ

35 καὶ εἶπεν Βερζελλι πρὸς τὸν βασιλέα πόσαι ἡμέραι ἐτῶν ζωῆς μου ὅτι ἀναβήσομαι μετὰ τοῦ βασιλέως εἰς Ιερουσαλημ

36 υἱὸς ὀγδοήκοντα ἐτῶν ἐγώ εἰμι σήμερον μὴ γνώσομαι ἀνὰ μέσον ἀγαθοῦ καὶ κακοῦ ἢ γεύσεται ὁ δοῦλός σου ἔτι ὃ φάγομαι ἢ πίομαι ἢ ἀκούσομαι ἔτι φωνὴν ᾀδόντων καὶ ᾀδουσῶν ἵνα τί ἔσται ἔτι ὁ δοῦλός σου εἰς φορτίον ἐπὶ τὸν κύριόν μου τὸν βασιλέα

37 ὡς βραχὺ διαβήσεται ὁ δοῦλός σου τὸν Ιορδάνην μετὰ τοῦ βασιλέως καὶ ἵνα τί ἀνταποδίδωσίν μοι ὁ βασιλεὺς τὴν ἀνταπόδοσιν ταύτην

38 καθισάτω δὴ ὁ δοῦλός σου καὶ ἀποθανοῦμαι ἐν τῇ πόλει μου παρὰ τῷ τάφῳ τοῦ πατρός μου καὶ τῆς μητρός μου καὶ ἰδοὺ ὁ δοῦλός σου Χαμααμ διαβήσεται μετὰ τοῦ κυρίου μου τοῦ βασιλέως καὶ ποίησον αὐτῷ τὸ ἀγαθὸν ἐν ὀφθαλμοῖς σου

39 καὶ εἶπεν ὁ βασιλεύς μετ᾽ ἐμοῦ διαβήτω Χαμααμ κἀγὼ ποιήσω αὐτῷ τὸ ἀγαθὸν ἐν ὀφθαλμοῖς σου καὶ πάντα ὅσα ἐκλέξῃ ἐπ᾽ ἐμοί ποιήσω σοι

40 καὶ διέβη πᾶς ὁ λαὸς τὸν Ιορδάνην καὶ ὁ βασιλεὺς διέβη καὶ κατεφίλησεν ὁ βασιλεὺς τὸν Βερζελλι καὶ εὐλόγησεν αὐτόν καὶ ἐπέστρεψεν εἰς τὸν τόπον αὐτοῦ

41 καὶ διέβη ὁ βασιλεὺς εἰς Γαλγαλα καὶ Χαμααμ διέβη μετ᾽ αὐτοῦ καὶ πᾶς ὁ λαὸς Ιουδα διαβαίνοντες μετὰ τοῦ βασιλέως καί γε τὸ ἥμισυ τοῦ λαοῦ Ισραηλ

42 καὶ ἰδοὺ πᾶς ἀνὴρ Ισραηλ παρεγένοντο πρὸς τὸν βασιλέα καὶ εἶπον πρὸς τὸν βασιλέα τί ὅτι ἔκλεψάν σε οἱ ἀδελφοὶ ἡμῶν ἀνὴρ Ιουδα καὶ διεβίβασαν τὸν βασιλέα καὶ τὸν οἶκον αὐτοῦ τὸν Ιορδάνην καὶ πάντες ἄνδρες Δαυιδ μετ᾽ αὐτοῦ

43 καὶ ἀπεκρίθη πᾶς ἀνὴρ Ιουδα πρὸς ἄνδρα Ισραηλ καὶ εἶπαν διότι ἐγγίζει πρός με ὁ βασιλεύς καὶ ἵνα τί οὕτως ἐθυμώθης περὶ τοῦ λόγου τούτου μὴ βρώσει ἐφάγαμεν ἐκ τοῦ βασιλέως ἢ δόμα ἔδωκεν ἢ ἄρσιν ἦρεν ἡμῖν

44 καὶ ἀπεκρίθη ἀνὴρ Ισραηλ τῷ ἀνδρὶ Ιουδα καὶ εἶπεν δέκα χεῖρές μοι ἐν τῷ βασιλεῖ καὶ πρωτότοκος ἐγὼ ἢ σύ καί γε ἐν τῷ Δαυιδ εἰμὶ ὑπὲρ σέ καὶ ἵνα τί τοῦτο ὕβρισάς με καὶ οὐκ ἐλογίσθη ὁ λόγος μου πρῶτός μοι τοῦ ἐπιστρέψαι τὸν βασιλέα ἐμοί καὶ ἐσκληρύνθη ὁ λόγος ἀνδρὸς Ιουδα ὑπὲρ τὸν λόγον ἀνδρὸς Ισραηλ

1 Nuntiatum est autem Joab quod rex fleret et lugeret filium suum,

2 et versa est victoria in luctum in die illa omni populo: audivit enim populus in die illa dici: Dolet rex super filio suo.

3 Et declinavit populus in die illa ingredi civitatem, quomodo declinare solet populus versus et fugiens de prælio.

4 Porro rex operuit caput suum, et clamabat voce magna: Fili mi Absalom, Absalom fili mi, fili mi.

5 Ingressus ergo Joab ad regem in domum, dixit: Confudisti hodie vultus omnium servorum tuorum, qui salvam fecerunt animam tuam, et animam filiorum tuorum et filiarum tuarum, et animam uxorum tuarum, et animam concubinarum tuarum.

6 Diligis odientes te, et odio habes diligentes te: et ostendisti hodie quia non curas de ducibus tuis et de servis tuis: et vere cognovi modo, quia si Absalom viveret, et omnes nos occubuissemus, tunc placeret tibi.

7 Nunc igitur surge, et procede, et alloquens satisfac servis tuis: juro enim tibi per Dominum quod si non exieris, ne unus quidem remansurus sit tecum nocte hac: et pejus erit hoc tibi quam omnia mala quæ venerunt super te ab adolescentia tua usque in præsens.

8 Surrexit ergo rex et sedit in porta: et omni populo nuntiatum est quod rex sederet in porta. Venitque universa multitudo coram rege: Israël autem fugit in tabernacula sua.

9 Omnis quoque populus certabat in cunctis tribubus Israël, dicens: Rex liberavit nos de manu inimicorum nostrorum; ipse salvavit nos de manu Philisthinorum: et nunc fugit de terra propter Absalom.

10 Absalom autem, quem unximus super nos, mortuus est in bello: usquequo siletis, et non reducitis regem?

11 Rex vero David misit ad Sadoc et Abiathar sacerdotes, dicens: Loquimini ad majores natu Juda, dicentes: Cur venitis novissimi ad reducendum regem in domum suam? (Sermo autem omnis Israël pervenerat ad regem in domo ejus.)

12 Fratres mei vos, os meum, et caro mea vos, quare novissimi reducitis regem?

13 Et Amasæ dicite: Nonne os meum, et caro mea es? hæc faciat mihi Deus, et hæc addat, si non magister militiæ fueris coram me omni tempore pro Joab.

14 Et inclinavit cor omnium virorum Juda quasi viri unius: miseruntque ad regem, dicentes: Revertere tu, et omnes servi tui.

15 Et reversus est rex, et venit usque ad Jordanem: et omnis Juda venit usque in Galgalam ut occurreret regi, et traduceret eum Jordanem.

16 Festinavit autem Semei filius Gera filii Jemini de Bahurim, et descendit cum viris Juda in occursum regis David,

17 cum mille viris de Benjamin, et Siba puer de domo Saul: et quindecim filii ejus, ac viginti servi erant cum eo: et irrumpentes Jordanem, ante regem

18 transierunt vada, ut traducerent domum regis, et facerent juxta jussionem ejus: Semei autem filius Gera prostratus coram rege, cum jam transisset Jordanem,

19 dixit ad eum: Ne reputes mihi, domine mi, iniquitatem, neque memineris injuriarum servi tui in die qua egressus es, domine mi rex, de Jerusalem, neque ponas, rex, in corde tuo.

20 Agnosco enim servus tuus peccatum meum: et idcirco hodie primus veni de omni domo Joseph, descendique in occursum domini mei regis.

21 Respondens vero Abisai filius Sarviæ, dixit: Numquid pro his verbis non occidetur Semei, quia maledixit christo Domini?

22 Et ait David: Quid mihi et vobis, filii Sarviæ? cur efficimini mihi hodie in satan? ergone hodie interficietur vir in Israël? an ignoro hodie me factum regem super Israël?

23 Et ait rex Semei: Non morieris. Juravitque ei.

24 Miphiboseth quoque filius Saul descendit in occursum regis, illotis pedibus et intonsa barba: vestesque suas non laverat a die qua egressus fuerat rex, usque ad diem reversionis ejus in pace.

25 Cumque Jerusalem occurrisset regi, dixit ei rex: Quare non venisti mecum, Miphiboseth?

26 Et respondens ait: Domine mi rex, servus meus contempsit me: dixique ei ego famulus tuus ut sterneret mihi asinum, et ascendens abirem cum rege: claudus enim sum servus tuus.

27 Insuper et accusavit me servum tuum ad te dominum meum regem: tu autem, domine mi rex, sicut angelus Dei es: fac quod placitum est tibi.

28 Neque enim fuit domus patris mei, nisi morti obnoxia domino meo regi: tu autem posuisti me servum tuum inter convivas mensæ tuæ: quid ergo habeo justæ querelæ? aut quid possum ultra vociferari ad regem?

29 Ait ergo ei rex: Quid ultra loqueris? fixum est quod locutus sum: tu et Siba dividite possessiones.

30 Responditque Miphiboseth regi: Etiam cuncta accipiat, postquam reversus est dominus meus rex pacifice in domum suam.

31 Berzellai quoque Galaadites, descendens de Rogelim, traduxit regem Jordanem, paratus etiam ultra fluvium prosequi eum.

32 Erat autem Berzellai Galaadites senex valde, id est, octogenarius, et ipse præbuit alimenta regi cum moraretur in castris: fuit quippe vir dives nimis.

33 Dixit itaque rex ad Berzellai: Veni mecum, ut requiescas securus mecum in Jerusalem.

34 Et ait Berzellai ad regem: Quot sunt dies annorum vitæ meæ, ut ascendam cum rege in Jerusalem?

35 Octogenarius sum hodie: numquid vigent sensus mei ad discernendum suave aut amarum? aut delectare potest servum tuum cibus et potus? vel audire possum ultra vocem cantorum atque cantatricum? quare servus tuus sit oneri domino meo regi?

36 Paululum procedam famulus tuus ab Jordane tecum: non indigeo hac vicissitudine,

37 sed obsecro ut revertar servus tuus, et moriar in civitate mea, et sepeliar juxta sepulchrum patris mei et matris meæ. Est autem servus tuus Chamaam: ipse vadat tecum, domine mi rex, et fac ei quidquid tibi bonum videtur.

38 Dixit itaque ei rex: Mecum transeat Chamaam, et ego faciam ei quidquid tibi placuerit: et omne quod petieris a me, impetrabis.

39 Cumque transisset universus populus et rex Jordanem, osculatus est rex Berzellai, et benedixit ei: et ille reversus est in locum suum.

40 Transivit ergo rex in Galgalam, et Chamaam cum eo.
Omnis autem populus Juda traduxerat regem, et media tantum pars adfuerat de populo Israël.

41 Itaque omnes viri Israël concurrentes ad regem dixerunt ei: Quare te furati sunt fratres nostri viri Juda, et traduxerunt regem et domum ejus Jordanem, omnesque viros David cum eo?

42 Et respondit omnis vir Juda ad viros Israël: Quia mihi propior est rex: cur irasceris super hac re? numquid comedimus aliquid ex rege, aut munera nobis data sunt?

43 Et respondit vir Israël ad viros Juda, et ait: Decem partibus major ego sum apud regem, magisque ad me pertinet David quam ad te: cur fecisti mihi injuriam, et non mihi nuntiatum est priori, ut reducerem regem meum? Durius autem responderunt viri Juda viris Israël.
