1 Samuel 14


1  Now it came to pass1961 upon a day,3117 that Jonathan3083 the son1121 of Saul7586 said559 unto413 the young man5288 that bore5375 his armor,3627 Come,1980 and let us go over5674 to413 the Philistines'6430 garrison,4673 that834 is on the other side.4480 5676 1975 But he told5046 not3808 his father.1

2  And Saul7586 tarried3427 in the uttermost part7097 of Gibeah1390 under8478 a pomegranate tree7416 which834 is in Migron:4051 and the people5971 that834 were with5973 him were about six8337 hundred3967 men;376

3  And Ahiah,281 the son1121 of Ahitub,285 Ichabod's350 brother,251 the son1121 of Phinehas,6372 the son1121 of Eli,5941 the LORD's3068 priest3548 in Shiloh,7887 wearing5375 an ephod.646 And the people5971 knew3045 not3808 that3588 Jonathan3083 was gone.1980

4  And between996 the passages,4569 by which834 Jonathan3083 sought1245 to go over5674 unto5921 the Philistines'6430 garrison,4673 there was a sharp8127 rock5553 on the one4480 2088 side,4480 5676 and a sharp8127 rock5553 on the other4480 2088 side:4480 5676 and the name8034 of the one259 was Bozez,949 and the name8034 of the other259 Seneh.5573

5  The forefront8127 of the one259 was situated4690 northward4480 6828 over against4136 Michmash,4363 and the other259 southward4480 5045 over against4136 Gibeah.1387

6  And Jonathan3083 said559 to413 the young man5288 that bore5375 his armor,3627 Come,1980 and let us go over5674 unto413 the garrison4673 of these428 uncircumcised:6189 it may be that194 the LORD3068 will work6213 for us: for3588 there is no369 restraint4622 to the LORD3068 to save3467 by many7227 or176 by few.4592

7  And his armorbearer3627 5375 said559 unto him, Do6213 all3605 that834 is in thine heart:3824 turn5186 thee; behold,2009 I am with5973 thee according to thy heart.3824

8  Then said559 Jonathan,3083 Behold,2009 we587 will pass over5674 unto413 these men,376 and we will discover ourselves1540 unto413 them.

9  If518 they say559 thus3541 unto413 us, Tarry1826 until5704 we come5060 to413 you; then we will stand still5975 in our place,8478 and will not3808 go up5927 unto413 them.

10  But if518 they say559 thus,3541 Come up5927 unto5921 us; then we will go up:5927 for3588 the LORD3068 hath delivered5414 them into our hand:3027 and this2088 shall be a sign226 unto us.

11  And both8147 of them discovered themselves1540 unto413 the garrison4673 of the Philistines:6430 and the Philistines6430 said,559 Behold,2009 the Hebrews5680 come forth3318 out of4480 the holes2356 where834 8033 they had hid themselves.2244

12  And the men376 of the garrison4675 answered6030 853 Jonathan3083 and his armorbearer,3627 5375 and said,559 Come up5927 to413 us, and we will show3045 you a thing.1697 And Jonathan3083 said559 unto413 his armorbearer,3627 5375 Come up5927 after310 me: for3588 the LORD3068 hath delivered5414 them into the hand3027 of Israel.3478

13  And Jonathan3083 climbed up5927 upon5921 his hands3027 and upon5921 his feet,7272 and his armorbearer3627 5375 after310 him: and they fell5307 before6440 Jonathan;3083 and his armorbearer3627 5375 slew4191 after310 him.

14  And that first7223 slaughter,4347 which834 Jonathan3083 and his armorbearer3627 5375 made,5221 was1961 about twenty6242 men,376 within as it were a half2677 acre4618 of land,7704 which a yoke6776 of oxen might plow.

15  And there was1961 trembling2731 in the host,4264 in the field,7704 and among all3605 the people:5971 the garrison,4673 and the spoilers,7843 they1992 also1571 trembled,2729 and the earth776 quaked:7264 so it was1961 a very great430 trembling.2731

16  And the watchmen6822 of Saul7586 in Gibeah1390 of Benjamin1144 looked;7200 and, behold,2009 the multitude1995 melted away,4127 and they went1980 on beating down1986 one another.

17  Then said559 Saul7586 unto the people5971 that834 were with854 him, Number6485 now,4994 and see7200 who4310 is gone1980 from4480 5973 us. And when they had numbered,6485 behold,2009 Jonathan3083 and his armorbearer3627 5375 were not369 there.

18  And Saul7586 said559 unto Ahiah,281 Bring hither5066 the ark727 of God.430 For3588 the ark727 of God430 was1961 at that1931 time3117 with the children1121 of Israel.3478

19  And it came to pass,1961 while5704 Saul7586 talked1696 unto413 the priest,3548 that the noise1995 that834 was in the host4264 of the Philistines6430 went on1980 and increased:1980 7227 and Saul7586 said559 unto413 the priest,3548 Withdraw622 thine hand.3027

20  And Saul7586 and all3605 the people5971 that834 were with854 him assembled themselves,2199 and they came935 to5704 the battle:4421 and, behold,2009 every man's376 sword2719 was1961 against his fellow,7453 and there was a very3966 great1419 discomfiture.4103

21  Moreover the Hebrews5680 that were1961 with the Philistines6430 before865 that time,8032 which834 went up5927 with5973 them into the camp4264 from the country round about,5439 even they1992 also1571 turned to be1961 with5973 the Israelites3478 that834 were with5973 Saul7586 and Jonathan.3083

22  Likewise all3605 the men376 of Israel3478 which had hid themselves2244 in mount2022 Ephraim,669 when they heard8085 that3588 the Philistines6430 fled,5127 even they1992 also1571 followed hard1692 after310 them in the battle.4421

23  So the LORD3068 saved3467 853 Israel3478 that1931 day:3117 and the battle4421 passed over5674 unto 853 Beth-aven.1007

24  And the men376 of Israel3478 were distressed5065 that1931 day:3117 for Saul7586 had adjured422 853 the people,5971 saying,559 Cursed779 be the man376 that834 eateth398 any food3899 until5704 evening,6153 that I may be avenged5358 on mine enemies.4480 341 So none3808 3605 of the people5971 tasted2938 any food.3899

25  And all3605 they of the land776 came935 to a wood;3293 and there was1961 honey1706 upon5921 6440 the ground.7704

26  And when the people5971 were come935 into413 the wood,3293 behold,2009 the honey1706 dropped;1982 but no369 man put5381 his hand3027 to413 his mouth:6310 for3588 the people5971 feared3372 853 the oath.7621

27  But Jonathan3083 heard8085 not3808 when his father1 charged the people with the oath:7650 853 5971 wherefore he put forth7971 853 the end7097 of the rod4294 that834 was in his hand,3027 and dipped2881 it853 in a honeycomb,3295 1706 and put7725 his hand3027 to413 his mouth;6310 and his eyes5869 were enlightened.215

28  Then answered6030 one376 of the people,4480 5971 and said,559 Thy father1 straitly charged the people with an oath,7650 7650 853 5971 saying,559 Cursed779 be the man376 that834 eateth398 any food3899 this day.3117 And the people5971 were faint.5888

29  Then said559 Jonathan,3083 My father1 hath troubled5916 853 the land:776 see,7200 I pray you,4994 how3588 mine eyes5869 have been enlightened,215 because3588 I tasted2938 a little4592 of this2088 honey.1706

30  How much more,637 3588 if haply3588 3863 the people5971 had eaten freely398 398 today3117 of the spoil4480 7998 of their enemies341 which834 they found?4672 for3588 had there not3808 been now6258 a much greater7235 slaughter4347 among the Philistines?6430

31  And they smote5221 the Philistines6430 that1931 day3117 from Michmash4480 4363 to Aijalon:357 and the people5971 were very3966 faint.5888

32  And the people5971 flew6213 upon413 the spoil,7998 and took3947 sheep,6629 and oxen,1241 and calves,1121 1241 and slew7819 them on the ground:776 and the people5971 did eat398 them with5921 the blood.1818

33  Then they told5046 Saul,7586 saying,559 Behold,2009 the people5971 sin2398 against the LORD,3068 in that they eat398 with5921 the blood.1818 And he said,559 Ye have transgressed:898 roll1556 a great1419 stone68 unto413 me this day.3117

34  And Saul7586 said,559 Disperse yourselves6327 among the people,5971 and say559 unto them, Bring me hither5066 413 every man376 his ox,7794 and every man376 his sheep,7716 and slay7819 them here,2088 and eat;398 and sin2398 not3808 against the LORD3068 in eating398 with413 the blood.1818 And all3605 the people5971 brought5066 every man376 his ox7794 with3027 him that night,3915 and slew7819 them there.8033

35  And Saul7586 built1129 an altar4196 unto the LORD:3068 the same was the first2490 altar4196 that he built1129 unto the LORD.3068

36  And Saul7586 said,559 Let us go down3381 after310 the Philistines6430 by night,3915 and spoil962 them until5704 the morning1242 light,216 and let us not3808 leave7604 a man376 of them. And they said,559 Do6213 whatsoever3605 seemeth5869 good2896 unto thee. Then said559 the priest,3548 Let us draw near7126 hither1988 unto413 God.430

37  And Saul7586 asked counsel7592 of God,430 Shall I go down3381 after310 the Philistines?6430 wilt thou deliver5414 them into the hand3027 of Israel?3478 But he answered6030 him not3808 that1931 day.3117

38  And Saul7586 said,559 Draw ye near5066 hither,1988 all3605 the chief6438 of the people:5971 and know3045 and see7200 wherein4100 this sin2403 hath been1961 this2063 day.3117

39  For,3588 as the LORD3068 liveth,2416 which saveth3467 853 Israel,3478 though3588 518 it be3426 in Jonathan3083 my son,1121 he shall surely die.4191 4191 But there was not a man369 among all4480 3605 the people5971 that answered6030 him.

40  Then said559 he unto413 all3605 Israel,3478 Be1961 ye859 on one259 side,5676 and I589 and Jonathan3083 my son1121 will be1961 on the other259 side.5676 And the people5971 said559 unto413 Saul,7586 Do6213 what seemeth5869 good2896 unto thee.

41  Therefore Saul7586 said559 unto413 the LORD3068 God430 of Israel,3478 Give3051 a perfect8549 lot. And Saul7586 and Jonathan3083 were taken:3920 but the people5971 escaped.3318

42  And Saul7586 said,559 Cast5307 lots between996 me and Jonathan3083 my son.1121 And Jonathan3083 was taken.3920

43  Then Saul7586 said559 to413 Jonathan,3083 Tell5046 me what4100 thou hast done.6213 And Jonathan3083 told5046 him, and said,559 I did but taste2938 2938 a little4592 honey1706 with the end7097 of the rod4294 that834 was in mine hand,3027 and, lo,2009 I must die.4191

44  And Saul7586 answered,559 God430 do6213 so3541 and more3254 also:3541 for3588 thou shalt surely die,4191 4191 Jonathan.3083

45  And the people5971 said559 unto413 Saul,7586 Shall Jonathan3083 die,4191 who834 hath wrought6213 this2063 great1419 salvation3444 in Israel?3478 God forbid:2486 as the LORD3068 liveth,2416 there shall not518 one hair4480 8185 of his head7218 fall5307 to the ground;776 for3588 he hath wrought6213 with5973 God430 this2088 day.3117 So the people5971 rescued6299 853 Jonathan,3083 that he died4191 not.3808

46  Then Saul7586 went up5927 from following4480 310 the Philistines:6430 and the Philistines6430 went1980 to their own place.4725

47  So Saul7586 took3920 the kingdom4410 over5921 Israel,3478 and fought3898 against all3605 his enemies341 on every side,5439 against Moab,4124 and against the children1121 of Ammon,5983 and against Edom,123 and against the kings4428 of Zobah,6678 and against the Philistines:6430 and whithersoever3605 834 he turned6437 himself, he vexed7561 them.

48  And he gathered6213 a host,2428 and smote5221 853 the Amalekites,6002 and delivered5337 853 Israel3478 out of the hands4480 3027 of them that spoiled8154 them.

49  Now the sons1121 of Saul7586 were1961 Jonathan,3083 and Ishui,3440 and Melchi-shua:4444 and the names8034 of his two8147 daughters1323 were these; the name8034 of the firstborn1067 Merab,4764 and the name8034 of the younger6996 Michal:4324

50  And the name8034 of Saul's7586 wife802 was Ahinoam,293 the daughter1323 of Ahimaaz:290 and the name8034 of the captain8269 of his host6635 was Abner,74 the son1121 of Ner,5369 Saul's7586 uncle.1730

51  And Kish7027 was the father1 of Saul;7586 and Ner5369 the father1 of Abner74 was the son1121 of Abiel.22

52  And there was1961 sore2389 war4421 against5921 the Philistines6430 all3605 the days3117 of Saul:7586 and when Saul7586 saw7200 any3605 strong1368 man,376 or any3605 valiant2428 man,1121 he took622 him unto413 him.


1 καὶ γίνεται ἡμέρα καὶ εἶπεν Ιωναθαν υἱὸς Σαουλ τῷ παιδαρίῳ τῷ αἴροντι τὰ σκεύη αὐτοῦ δεῦρο καὶ διαβῶμεν εἰς μεσσαβ τῶν ἀλλοφύλων τὴν ἐν τῷ πέραν ἐκείνῳ καὶ τῷ πατρὶ αὐτοῦ οὐκ ἀπήγγειλεν

2 καὶ Σαουλ ἐκάθητο ἐπ᾽ ἄκρου τοῦ βουνοῦ ὑπὸ τὴν ῥόαν τὴν ἐν Μαγδων καὶ ἦσαν μετ᾽ αὐτοῦ ὡς ἑξακόσιοι ἄνδρες

3 καὶ Αχια υἱὸς Αχιτωβ ἀδελφοῦ Ιωχαβηδ υἱοῦ Φινεες υἱοῦ Ηλι ἱερεὺς τοῦ θεοῦ ἐν Σηλωμ αἴρων εφουδ καὶ ὁ λαὸς οὐκ ᾔδει ὅτι πεπόρευται Ιωναθαν

4 καὶ ἀνὰ μέσον τῆς διαβάσεως οὗ ἐζήτει Ιωναθαν διαβῆναι εἰς τὴν ὑπόστασιν τῶν ἀλλοφύλων καὶ ἀκρωτήριον πέτρας ἔνθεν καὶ ἀκρωτήριον πέτρας ἔνθεν ὄνομα τῷ ἑνὶ Βαζες καὶ ὄνομα τῷ ἄλλῳ Σεννα

5 ἡ ὁδὸς ἡ μία ἀπὸ βορρᾶ ἐρχομένῳ Μαχμας καὶ ἡ ὁδὸς ἡ ἄλλη ἀπὸ νότου ἐρχομένῳ Γαβεε

6 καὶ εἶπεν Ιωναθαν πρὸς τὸ παιδάριον τὸ αἶρον τὰ σκεύη αὐτοῦ δεῦρο διαβῶμεν εἰς μεσσαβ τῶν ἀπεριτμήτων τούτων εἴ τι ποιήσαι ἡμῖν κύριος ὅτι οὐκ ἔστιν τῷ κυρίῳ συνεχόμενον σῴζειν ἐν πολλοῖς ἢ ἐν ὀλίγοις

7 καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῷ ὁ αἴρων τὰ σκεύη αὐτοῦ ποίει πᾶν ὃ ἐὰν ἡ καρδία σου ἐκκλίνῃ ἰδοὺ ἐγὼ μετὰ σοῦ ὡς ἡ καρδία σοῦ καρδία μοῦ

8 καὶ εἶπεν Ιωναθαν ἰδοὺ ἡμεῖς διαβαίνομεν πρὸς τοὺς ἄνδρας καὶ κατακυλισθησόμεθα πρὸς αὐτούς

9 ἐὰν τάδε εἴπωσιν πρὸς ἡμᾶς ἀπόστητε ἐκεῖ ἕως ἂν ἀπαγγείλωμεν ὑμῖν καὶ στησόμεθα ἐφ᾽ ἑαυτοῖς καὶ οὐ μὴ ἀναβῶμεν ἐπ᾽ αὐτούς

10 καὶ ἐὰν τάδε εἴπωσιν πρὸς ἡμᾶς ἀνάβητε πρὸς ἡμᾶς καὶ ἀναβησόμεθα ὅτι παραδέδωκεν αὐτοὺς κύριος εἰς τὰς χεῖρας ἡμῶν τοῦτο ἡμῖν τὸ σημεῖον

11 καὶ εἰσῆλθον ἀμφότεροι εἰς μεσσαβ τῶν ἀλλοφύλων καὶ λέγουσιν οἱ ἀλλόφυλοι ἰδοὺ οἱ Εβραῖοι ἐκπορεύονται ἐκ τῶν τρωγλῶν αὐτῶν οὗ ἐκρύβησαν ἐκεῖ

12 καὶ ἀπεκρίθησαν οἱ ἄνδρες μεσσαβ πρὸς Ιωναθαν καὶ πρὸς τὸν αἴροντα τὰ σκεύη αὐτοῦ καὶ λέγουσιν ἀνάβητε πρὸς ἡμᾶς καὶ γνωριοῦμεν ὑμῖν ῥῆμα καὶ εἶπεν Ιωναθαν πρὸς τὸν αἴροντα τὰ σκεύη αὐτοῦ ἀνάβηθι ὀπίσω μου ὅτι παρέδωκεν αὐτοὺς κύριος εἰς χεῖρας Ισραηλ

13 καὶ ἀνέβη Ιωναθαν ἐπὶ τὰς χεῖρας αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐπὶ τοὺς πόδας αὐτοῦ καὶ ὁ αἴρων τὰ σκεύη αὐτοῦ μετ᾽ αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐπέβλεψαν κατὰ πρόσωπον Ιωναθαν καὶ ἐπάταξεν αὐτούς καὶ ὁ αἴρων τὰ σκεύη αὐτοῦ ἐπεδίδου ὀπίσω αὐτοῦ

14 καὶ ἐγενήθη ἡ πληγὴ ἡ πρώτη ἣν ἐπάταξεν Ιωναθαν καὶ ὁ αἴρων τὰ σκεύη αὐτοῦ ὡς εἴκοσι ἄνδρες ἐν βολίσι καὶ ἐν πετροβόλοις καὶ ἐν κόχλαξιν τοῦ πεδίου

15 καὶ ἐγενήθη ἔκστασις ἐν τῇ παρεμβολῇ καὶ ἐν ἀγρῷ καὶ πᾶς ὁ λαὸς οἱ ἐν μεσσαβ καὶ οἱ διαφθείροντες ἐξέστησαν καὶ αὐτοὶ οὐκ ἤθελον ποιεῖν καὶ ἐθάμβησεν ἡ γῆ καὶ ἐγενήθη ἔκστασις παρὰ κυρίου

16 καὶ εἶδον οἱ σκοποὶ τοῦ Σαουλ ἐν Γαβεε Βενιαμιν καὶ ἰδοὺ ἡ παρεμβολὴ τεταραγμένη ἔνθεν καὶ ἔνθεν

17 καὶ εἶπεν Σαουλ τῷ λαῷ τῷ μετ᾽ αὐτοῦ ἐπισκέψασθε δὴ καὶ ἴδετε τίς πεπόρευται ἐξ ὑμῶν καὶ ἐπεσκέψαντο καὶ ἰδοὺ οὐχ εὑρίσκετο Ιωναθαν καὶ ὁ αἴρων τὰ σκεύη αὐτοῦ

18 καὶ εἶπεν Σαουλ τῷ Αχια προσάγαγε τὸ εφουδ ὅτι αὐτὸς ἦρεν τὸ εφουδ ἐν τῇ ἡμέρᾳ ἐκείνῃ ἐνώπιον Ισραηλ

19 καὶ ἐγενήθη ὡς ἐλάλει Σαουλ πρὸς τὸν ἱερέα καὶ ὁ ἦχος ἐν τῇ παρεμβολῇ τῶν ἀλλοφύλων ἐπορεύετο πορευόμενος καὶ ἐπλήθυνεν καὶ εἶπεν Σαουλ πρὸς τὸν ἱερέα συνάγαγε τὰς χεῖράς σου

20 καὶ ἀνεβόησεν Σαουλ καὶ πᾶς ὁ λαὸς ὁ μετ᾽ αὐτοῦ καὶ ἔρχονται ἕως τοῦ πολέμου καὶ ἰδοὺ ἐγένετο ῥομφαία ἀνδρὸς ἐπὶ τὸν πλησίον αὐτοῦ σύγχυσις μεγάλη σφόδρα

21 καὶ οἱ δοῦλοι οἱ ὄντες ἐχθὲς καὶ τρίτην ἡμέραν μετὰ τῶν ἀλλοφύλων οἱ ἀναβάντες εἰς τὴν παρεμβολὴν ἐπεστράφησαν καὶ αὐτοὶ εἶναι μετὰ Ισραηλ τῶν μετὰ Σαουλ καὶ Ιωναθαν

22 καὶ πᾶς Ισραηλ οἱ κρυπτόμενοι ἐν τῷ ὄρει Εφραιμ καὶ ἤκουσαν ὅτι πεφεύγασιν οἱ ἀλλόφυλοι καὶ συνάπτουσιν καὶ αὐτοὶ ὀπίσω αὐτῶν εἰς πόλεμον

23 καὶ ἔσωσεν κύριος ἐν τῇ ἡμέρᾳ ἐκείνῃ τὸν Ισραηλ καὶ ὁ πόλεμος διῆλθεν τὴν Βαιθων καὶ πᾶς ὁ λαὸς ἦν μετὰ Σαουλ ὡς δέκα χιλιάδες ἀνδρῶν καὶ ἦν ὁ πόλεμος διεσπαρμένος εἰς ὅλην τὴν πόλιν ἐν τῷ ὄρει Εφραιμ

24 καὶ Σαουλ ἠγνόησεν ἄγνοιαν μεγάλην ἐν τῇ ἡμέρᾳ ἐκείνῃ καὶ ἀρᾶται τῷ λαῷ λέγων ἐπικατάρατος ὁ ἄνθρωπος ὃς φάγεται ἄρτον ἕως ἑσπέρας καὶ ἐκδικήσω τὸν ἐχθρόν μου καὶ οὐκ ἐγεύσατο πᾶς ὁ λαὸς ἄρτου

25 καὶ πᾶσα ἡ γῆ ἠρίστα καὶ ιααρ δρυμὸς ἦν μελισσῶνος κατὰ πρόσωπον τοῦ ἀγροῦ

26 καὶ εἰσῆλθεν ὁ λαὸς εἰς τὸν μελισσῶνα καὶ ἰδοὺ ἐπορεύετο λαλῶν καὶ ἰδοὺ οὐκ ἦν ἐπιστρέφων τὴν χεῖρα αὐτοῦ εἰς τὸ στόμα αὐτοῦ ὅτι ἐφοβήθη ὁ λαὸς τὸν ὅρκον κυρίου

27 καὶ Ιωναθαν οὐκ ἀκηκόει ἐν τῷ ὁρκίζειν τὸν πατέρα αὐτοῦ τὸν λαόν καὶ ἐξέτεινεν τὸ ἄκρον τοῦ σκήπτρου αὐτοῦ τοῦ ἐν τῇ χειρὶ αὐτοῦ καὶ ἔβαψεν αὐτὸ εἰς τὸ κηρίον τοῦ μέλιτος καὶ ἐπέστρεψεν τὴν χεῖρα αὐτοῦ εἰς τὸ στόμα αὐτοῦ καὶ ἀνέβλεψαν οἱ ὀφθαλμοὶ αὐτοῦ

28 καὶ ἀπεκρίθη εἷς ἐκ τοῦ λαοῦ καὶ εἶπεν ὁρκίσας ὥρκισεν ὁ πατήρ σου τὸν λαὸν λέγων ἐπικατάρατος ὁ ἄνθρωπος ὃς φάγεται ἄρτον σήμερον καὶ ἐξελύθη ὁ λαός

29 καὶ ἔγνω Ιωναθαν καὶ εἶπεν ἀπήλλαχεν ὁ πατήρ μου τὴν γῆν ἰδὲ δὴ ὅτι εἶδον οἱ ὀφθαλμοί μου ὅτι ἐγευσάμην βραχὺ τοῦ μέλιτος τούτου

30 ἀλλ᾽ ὅτι εἰ ἔφαγεν ἔσθων ὁ λαὸς σήμερον τῶν σκύλων τῶν ἐχθρῶν αὐτῶν ὧν εὗρεν ὅτι νῦν ἂν μείζων ἦν ἡ πληγὴ ἐν τοῖς ἀλλοφύλοις

31 καὶ ἐπάταξεν ἐν τῇ ἡμέρᾳ ἐκείνῃ ἐκ τῶν ἀλλοφύλων ἐν Μαχεμας καὶ ἐκοπίασεν ὁ λαὸς σφόδρα

32 καὶ ἐκλίθη ὁ λαὸς εἰς τὰ σκῦλα καὶ ἔλαβεν ὁ λαὸς ποίμνια καὶ βουκόλια καὶ τέκνα βοῶν καὶ ἔσφαξεν ἐπὶ τὴν γῆν καὶ ἤσθιεν ὁ λαὸς σὺν τῷ αἵματι

33 καὶ ἀπηγγέλη τῷ Σαουλ λέγοντες ἡμάρτηκεν ὁ λαὸς τῷ κυρίῳ φαγὼν σὺν τῷ αἵματι καὶ εἶπεν Σαουλ ἐν Γεθθεμ κυλίσατέ μοι λίθον ἐνταῦθα μέγαν

34 καὶ εἶπεν Σαουλ διασπάρητε ἐν τῷ λαῷ καὶ εἴπατε αὐτοῖς προσαγαγεῖν ἐνταῦθα ἕκαστος τὸν μόσχον αὐτοῦ καὶ ἕκαστος τὸ πρόβατον αὐτοῦ καὶ σφαζέτω ἐπὶ τούτου καὶ οὐ μὴ ἁμάρτητε τῷ κυρίῳ τοῦ ἐσθίειν σὺν τῷ αἵματι καὶ προσῆγεν πᾶς ὁ λαὸς ἕκαστος τὸ ἐν τῇ χειρὶ αὐτοῦ καὶ ἔσφαζον ἐκεῖ

35 καὶ ᾠκοδόμησεν ἐκεῖ Σαουλ θυσιαστήριον τῷ κυρίῳ τοῦτο ἤρξατο Σαουλ οἰκοδομῆσαι θυσιαστήριον τῷ κυρίῳ

36 καὶ εἶπεν Σαουλ καταβῶμεν ὀπίσω τῶν ἀλλοφύλων τὴν νύκτα καὶ διαρπάσωμεν ἐν αὐτοῖς ἕως διαφαύσῃ ἡ ἡμέρα καὶ μὴ ὑπολίπωμεν ἐν αὐτοῖς ἄνδρα καὶ εἶπαν πᾶν τὸ ἀγαθὸν ἐνώπιόν σου ποίει καὶ εἶπεν ὁ ἱερεύς προσέλθωμεν ἐνταῦθα πρὸς τὸν θεόν

37 καὶ ἐπηρώτησεν Σαουλ τὸν θεόν εἰ καταβῶ ὀπίσω τῶν ἀλλοφύλων εἰ παραδώσεις αὐτοὺς εἰς χεῖρας Ισραηλ καὶ οὐκ ἀπεκρίθη αὐτῷ ἐν τῇ ἡμέρᾳ ἐκείνῃ

38 καὶ εἶπεν Σαουλ προσαγάγετε ἐνταῦθα πάσας τὰς γωνίας τοῦ Ισραηλ καὶ γνῶτε καὶ ἴδετε ἐν τίνι γέγονεν ἡ ἁμαρτία αὕτη σήμερον

39 ὅτι ζῇ κύριος ὁ σώσας τὸν Ισραηλ ὅτι ἐὰν ἀποκριθῇ κατὰ Ιωναθαν τοῦ υἱοῦ μου θανάτῳ ἀποθανεῖται καὶ οὐκ ἦν ὁ ἀποκρινόμενος ἐκ παντὸς τοῦ λαοῦ

40 καὶ εἶπεν παντὶ Ισραηλ ὑμεῖς ἔσεσθε εἰς δουλείαν καὶ ἐγὼ καὶ Ιωναθαν ὁ υἱός μου ἐσόμεθα εἰς δουλείαν καὶ εἶπεν ὁ λαὸς πρὸς Σαουλ τὸ ἀγαθὸν ἐνώπιόν σου ποίει

41 καὶ εἶπεν Σαουλ κύριε ὁ θεὸς Ισραηλ τί ὅτι οὐκ ἀπεκρίθης τῷ δούλῳ σου σήμερον εἰ ἐν ἐμοὶ ἢ ἐν Ιωναθαν τῷ υἱῷ μου ἡ ἀδικία κύριε ὁ θεὸς Ισραηλ δὸς δήλους καὶ ἐὰν τάδε εἴπῃς ἐν τῷ λαῷ σου Ισραηλ δὸς δὴ ὁσιότητα καὶ κληροῦται Ιωναθαν καὶ Σαουλ καὶ ὁ λαὸς ἐξῆλθεν

42 καὶ εἶπεν Σαουλ βάλετε ἀνὰ μέσον ἐμοῦ καὶ ἀνὰ μέσον Ιωναθαν τοῦ υἱοῦ μου ὃν ἂν κατακληρώσηται κύριος ἀποθανέτω καὶ εἶπεν ὁ λαὸς πρὸς Σαουλ οὐκ ἔστιν τὸ ῥῆμα τοῦτο καὶ κατεκράτησεν Σαουλ τοῦ λαοῦ καὶ βάλλουσιν ἀνὰ μέσον αὐτοῦ καὶ ἀνὰ μέσον Ιωναθαν τοῦ υἱοῦ αὐτοῦ καὶ κατακληροῦται Ιωναθαν

43 καὶ εἶπεν Σαουλ πρὸς Ιωναθαν ἀπάγγειλόν μοι τί πεποίηκας καὶ ἀπήγγειλεν αὐτῷ Ιωναθαν καὶ εἶπεν γευσάμενος ἐγευσάμην ἐν ἄκρῳ τῷ σκήπτρῳ τῷ ἐν τῇ χειρί μου βραχὺ μέλι ἰδοὺ ἐγὼ ἀποθνῄσκω

44 καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῷ Σαουλ τάδε ποιήσαι μοι ὁ θεὸς καὶ τάδε προσθείη ὅτι θανάτῳ ἀποθανῇ σήμερον

45 καὶ εἶπεν ὁ λαὸς πρὸς Σαουλ εἰ σήμερον θανατωθήσεται ὁ ποιήσας τὴν σωτηρίαν τὴν μεγάλην ταύτην ἐν Ισραηλ ζῇ κύριος εἰ πεσεῖται τῆς τριχὸς τῆς κεφαλῆς αὐτοῦ ἐπὶ τὴν γῆν ὅτι ὁ λαὸς τοῦ θεοῦ ἐποίησεν τὴν ἡμέραν ταύτην καὶ προσηύξατο ὁ λαὸς περὶ Ιωναθαν ἐν τῇ ἡμέρᾳ ἐκείνῃ καὶ οὐκ ἀπέθανεν

46 καὶ ἀνέβη Σαουλ ἀπὸ ὄπισθεν τῶν ἀλλοφύλων καὶ οἱ ἀλλόφυλοι ἀπῆλθον εἰς τὸν τόπον αὐτῶν

47 καὶ Σαουλ κατακληροῦται ἔργον ἐπὶ Ισραηλ καὶ ἐπολέμει κύκλῳ πάντας τοὺς ἐχθροὺς αὐτοῦ εἰς τὸν Μωαβ καὶ εἰς τοὺς υἱοὺς Αμμων καὶ εἰς τοὺς υἱοὺς Εδωμ καὶ εἰς τὸν Βαιθεωρ καὶ εἰς βασιλέα Σουβα καὶ εἰς τοὺς ἀλλοφύλους οὗ ἂν ἐστράφη ἐσῴζετο

48 καὶ ἐποίησεν δύναμιν καὶ ἐπάταξεν τὸν Αμαληκ καὶ ἐξείλατο τὸν Ισραηλ ἐκ χειρὸς τῶν καταπατούντων αὐτόν

49 καὶ ἦσαν υἱοὶ Σαουλ Ιωναθαν καὶ Ιεσσιου καὶ Μελχισα καὶ ὀνόματα τῶν δύο θυγατέρων αὐτοῦ ὄνομα τῇ πρωτοτόκῳ Μεροβ καὶ ὄνομα τῇ δευτέρᾳ Μελχολ

50 καὶ ὄνομα τῇ γυναικὶ αὐτοῦ Αχινοομ θυγάτηρ Αχιμαας καὶ ὄνομα τῷ ἀρχιστρατήγῳ Αβεννηρ υἱὸς Νηρ υἱοῦ οἰκείου Σαουλ

51 καὶ Κις πατὴρ Σαουλ καὶ Νηρ πατὴρ Αβεννηρ υἱὸς Ιαμιν υἱοῦ Αβιηλ

52 καὶ ἦν ὁ πόλεμος κραταιὸς ἐπὶ τοὺς ἀλλοφύλους πάσας τὰς ἡμέρας Σαουλ καὶ ἰδὼν Σαουλ πάντα ἄνδρα δυνατὸν καὶ πάντα ἄνδρα υἱὸν δυνάμεως καὶ συνήγαγεν αὐτοὺς πρὸς αὐτόν

1 Et accidit quadam die ut diceret Jonathas filius Saul ad adolescentem armigerum suum: Veni, et transeamus ad stationem Philisthinorum, quæ est trans locum illum. Patri autem suo hoc ipsum non indicavit.

2 Porro Saul morabatur in extrema parte Gabaa sub malogranato, quæ erat in Magron: et erat populus cum eo quasi sexcentorum virorum.

3 Et Achias filius Achitob fratris Ichabod filii Phinees, qui ortus fuerat ex Heli sacerdote Domini in Silo, portabat ephod. Sed et populus ignorabat quo isset Jonathas.

4 Erant autem inter ascensus per quos nitebatur Jonathas transire ad stationem Philisthinorum, eminentes petræ ex utraque parte, et quasi in modum dentium scopuli hinc et inde prærupti: nomen uni Boses, et nomen alteri Sene:

5 unus scopulus prominens ad aquilonem ex adverso Machmas, et alter ad meridiem contra Gabaa.

6 Dixit autem Jonathas ad adolescentem armigerum suum: Veni, transeamus ad stationem incircumcisorum horum, si forte faciat Dominus pro nobis: quia non est Domino difficile salvare, vel in multis, vel in paucis.

7 Dixitque ei armiger suus: Fac omnia quæ placent animo tuo: perge quo cupis, et ero tecum ubicumque volueris.

8 Et ait Jonathas: Ecce nos transimus ad viros istos. Cumque apparuerimus eis,

9 si taliter locuti fuerint ad nos: Manete donec veniamus ad vos: stemus in loco nostro, nec ascendamus ad eos.

10 Si autem dixerint: Ascendite ad nos: ascendamus, quia tradidit eos Dominus in manibus nostris: hoc erit nobis signum.

11 Apparuit igitur uterque stationi Philisthinorum: dixeruntque Philisthiim: En Hebræi egrediuntur de cavernis in quibus absconditi fuerant.

12 Et locuti sunt viri de statione ad Jonathan et ad armigerum ejus, dixeruntque: Ascendite ad nos, et ostendemus vobis rem. Et ait Jonathas ad armigerum suum: Ascendamus: sequere me: tradidit enim Dominus eos in manus Israël.

13 Ascendit autem Jonathas manibus et pedibus reptans, et armiger ejus post eum. Itaque alii cadebant ante Jonathan, alios armiger ejus interficiebat sequens eum.

14 Et facta est plaga prima qua percussit Jonathas et armiger ejus, quasi viginti virorum in media parte jugeri quam par boum in die arare consuevit.

15 Et factum est miraculum in castris per agros: sed et omnis populus stationis eorum qui ierant ad prædandum, obstupuit, et conturbata est terra: et accidit quasi miraculum a Deo.

16 Et respexerunt speculatores Saul qui erant in Gabaa Benjamin, et ecce multitudo prostrata, et huc illucque diffugiens.

17 Et ait Saul populo qui erat cum eo: Requirite, et videte quis abierit ex nobis. Cumque requisissent, repertum est non adesse Jonathan et armigerum ejus.

18 Et ait Saul ad Achiam: Applica arcam Dei. (Erat enim ibi arca Dei in die illa cum filiis Israël.)

19 Cumque loqueretur Saul ad sacerdotem, tumultus magnus exortus est in castris Philisthinorum: crescebatque paulatim, et clarius resonabat. Et ait Saul ad sacerdotem: Contrahe manum tuam.

20 Conclamavit ergo Saul, et omnis populus qui erat cum eo, et venerunt usque ad locum certaminis: et ecce versus fuerat gladius uniuscujusque ad proximum suum, et cædes magna nimis.

21 Sed et Hebræi qui fuerant cum Philisthiim heri et nudiustertius, ascenderantque cum eis in castris, reversi sunt ut essent cum Israël qui erant cum Saul et Jonatha.

22 Omnes quoque Israëlitæ qui se absconderant in monte Ephraim, audientes quod fugissent Philisthæi, sociaverunt se cum suis in prælio. Et erant cum Saul quasi decem millia virorum.

23 Et salvavit Dominus in die illa Israël: pugna autem pervenit usque ad Bethaven.

24 Et viri Israël sociati sunt sibi in die illa: adjuravit autem Saul populum, dicens: Maledictus vir qui comederit panem usque ad vesperam, donec ulciscar de inimicis meis. Et non manducavit universus populus panem:

25 omneque terræ vulgus venit in saltum, in quo erat mel super faciem agri.

26 Ingressus est itaque populus saltum, et apparuit fluens mel, nullusque applicuit manum ad os suum: timebat enim populus juramentum.

27 Porro Jonathas non audierat cum adjuraret pater ejus populum: extenditque summitatem virgæ quam habebat in manu, et intinxit in favum mellis: et convertit manum suam ad os suum, et illuminati sunt oculi ejus.

28 Respondensque unus de populo, ait: Jurejurando constrinxit pater tuus populum, dicens: Maledictus vir qui comederit panem hodie. (Defecerat autem populus.)

29 Dixitque Jonathas: Turbavit pater meus terram: vidistis ipsi quia illuminati sunt oculi mei, eo quod gustaverim paululum de melle isto:

30 quanto magis si comedisset populus de præda inimicorum suorum, quam reperit? nonne major plaga facta fuisset in Philisthiim?

31 Percusserunt ergo in die illa Philisthæos a Machmis usque in Ajalon.
Defatigatus est autem populus nimis:

32 et versus ad prædam tulit oves, et boves, et vitulos, et mactaverunt in terra: comeditque populus cum sanguine.

33 Nuntiaverunt autem Sauli dicentes quod populus peccasset Domino, comedens cum sanguine. Qui ait: Prævaricati estis: volvite ad me jam nunc saxum grande.

34 Et dixit Saul: Dispergimini in vulgus, et dicite eis ut adducat ad me unusquisque bovem suum et arietem, et occidite super istud, et vescimini, et non peccabitis Domino comedentes cum sanguine. Adduxit itaque omnis populus unusquisque bovem in manu sua usque ad noctem: et occiderunt ibi.

35 Ædificavit autem Saul altare Domino, tuncque primum cœpit ædificare altare Domino.

36 Et dixit Saul: Irruamus super Philisthæos nocte, et vastemus eos usque dum illucescat mane, nec relinquamus ex eis virum. Dixitque populus: Omne quod bonum videtur in oculis tuis, fac. Et ait sacerdos: Accedamus huc ad Deum.

37 Et consuluit Saul Dominum: Num persequar Philisthiim? si trades eos in manus Israël? Et non respondit ei in die illa.

38 Dixitque Saul: Applicate huc universos angulos populi: et scitote, et videte per quem acciderit peccatum hoc hodie.

39 Vivit Dominus salvator Israël, quia si per Jonathan filium meum factum est, absque retractione morietur. Ad quod nullus contradixit ei de omni populo.

40 Et ait ad universum Israël: Separamini vos in partem unam, et ego cum Jonatha filio meo ero in parte altera. Responditque populus ad Saul: Quod bonum videtur in oculis tuis, fac.

41 Et dixit Saul ad Dominum Deum Israël: Domine Deus Israël, da indicium: quid est quod non responderis servo tuo hodie? si in me, aut in Jonatha filio meo, est iniquitas hæc, da ostensionem: aut si hæc iniquitas est in populo tuo, da sanctitatem. Et deprehensus est Jonathas et Saul: populus autem exivit.

42 Et ait Saul: Mittite sortem inter me et inter Jonathan filium meum. Et captus est Jonathas.

43 Dixit autem Saul ad Jonathan: Indica mihi quid feceris. Et indicavit ei Jonathas, et ait: Gustans gustavi in summitate virgæ quæ erat in manu mea, paululum mellis, et ecce ego morior.

44 Et ait Saul: Hæc faciat mihi Deus, et hæc addat, quia morte morieris, Jonatha.

45 Dixitque populus ad Saul: Ergone Jonathas morietur, qui fecit salutem hanc magnam in Israël? hoc nefas est: vivit Dominus, si ceciderit capillus de capite ejus in terram, quia cum Deo operatus est hodie. Liberavit ergo populus Jonathan, ut non moreretur.

46 Recessitque Saul, nec persecutus est Philisthiim: porro Philisthiim abierunt in loca sua.

47 Et Saul, confirmato regno super Israël, pugnabat per circuitum adversum omnes inimicos ejus, contra Moab, et filios Ammon, et Edom, et reges Soba, et Philisthæos: et quocumque se verterat, superabat.

48 Congregatoque exercitu, percussit Amalec, et eruit Israël de manu vastatorum ejus.

49 Fuerunt autem filii Saul, Jonathas, et Jessui, et Melchisua: et nomina duarum filiarum ejus, nomen primogenitæ Merob, et nomen minoris Michol.

50 Et nomen uxoris Saul Achinoam filia Achimaas: et nomen principis militiæ ejus Abner filius Ner, patruelis Saul.

51 Porro Cis fuit pater Saul, et Ner pater Abner, filius Abiel.

52 Erat autem bellum potens adversum Philisthæos omnibus diebus Saul. Nam quemcumque viderat Saul virum fortem, et aptum ad prælium, sociabat eum sibi.
