1 Samuel 22


1  David1732 therefore departed1980 thence,4480 8033 and escaped4422 to413 the cave4631 Adullam:5725 and when his brethren251 and all3605 his father's1 house1004 heard8085 it, they went down3381 thither8033 to413 him.

2  And every3605 one376 that was in distress,4689 and every3605 one376 that834 was in debt,5378 and every3605 one376 that was discontented,4751 5315 gathered themselves6908 unto413 him; and he became1961 a captain8269 over5921 them: and there were1961 with5973 him about four702 hundred3967 men.376

3  And David1732 went1980 thence4480 8033 to Mizpeh4708 of Moab:4124 and he said559 unto413 the king4428 of Moab,4124 Let my father1 and my mother,517 I pray thee,4994 come forth,3318 and be with854 you, till5704 834 I know3045 what4100 God430 will do6213 for me.

4  And he brought5148 them 853 before6440 the king4428 of Moab:4124 and they dwelt3427 with5973 him all3605 the while3117 that David1732 was1961 in the hold.4686

5  And the prophet5030 Gad1410 said559 unto413 David,1732 Abide3427 not3808 in the hold;4686 depart,1980 and get935 thee into the land776 of Judah.3063 Then David1732 departed,1980 and came935 into the forest3293 of Hareth.2802

6  When Saul7586 heard8085 that3588 David1732 was discovered,3045 and the men376 that834 were with854 him, (now Saul7586 abode3427 in Gibeah1390 under8478 a tree815 in Ramah,7414 having his spear2595 in his hand,3027 and all3605 his servants5650 were standing5324 about5921 him;)

7  Then Saul7586 said559 unto his servants5650 that stood5324 about5921 him, Hear8085 now,4994 ye Benjamites;1145 will the son1121 of Jesse3448 give5414 every one3605 of you fields7704 and vineyards,3754 and make7760 you all3605 captains8269 of thousands,505 and captains8269 of hundreds;3967

8  That3588 all3605 of you have conspired7194 against5921 me, and there is none369 that showeth1540 853 241 me that my son1121 hath made a league3772 with5973 the son1121 of Jesse,3448 and there is none369 of4480 you that is sorry2470 for5921 me, or showeth unto1540 853 241 me that3588 my son1121 hath stirred up6965 853 my servant5650 against5921 me, to lie in wait,693 as at this2088 day?3117

9  Then answered6030 Doeg1673 the Edomite,130 which1931 was set5324 over5921 the servants5650 of Saul,7586 and said,559 I saw7200 853 the son1121 of Jesse3448 coming935 to Nob,5011 to413 Ahimelech288 the son1121 of Ahitub.285

10  And he inquired7592 of the LORD3068 for him, and gave5414 him victuals,6720 and gave5414 him the sword2719 of Goliath1555 the Philistine.6430

11  Then the king4428 sent7971 to call7121 853 Ahimelech288 the priest,3548 the son1121 of Ahitub,285 and all3605 his father's1 house,1004 the priests3548 that834 were in Nob:5011 and they came935 all3605 of them to413 the king.4428

12  And Saul7586 said,559 Hear8085 now,4994 thou son1121 of Ahitub.285 And he answered,559 Here2009 I am, my lord.113

13  And Saul7586 said559 unto413 him, Why4100 have ye conspired7194 against5921 me, thou859 and the son1121 of Jesse,3448 in that thou hast given5414 him bread,3899 and a sword,2719 and hast inquired7592 of God430 for him, that he should rise6965 against413 me, to lie in wait,693 as at this2088 day?3117

14  Then Ahimelech288 answered6030 853 the king,4428 and said,559 And who4310 is so faithful539 among all3605 thy servants5650 as David,1732 which is the king's4428 son-in-law,2860 and goeth5493 at413 thy bidding,4928 and is honorable3513 in thine house?1004

15  Did I then3117 begin2490 to inquire7592 of God430 for him? be it far2486 from me: let not408 the king4428 impute7760 any thing1697 unto his servant,5650 nor to all3605 the house1004 of my father:1 for3588 thy servant5650 knew3045 nothing3808 of all3605 this,2063 less6996 or176 more.1419

16  And the king4428 said,559 Thou shalt surely die,4191 4191 Ahimelech,288 thou,859 and all3605 thy father's1 house.1004

17  And the king4428 said559 unto the footmen7323 that stood5324 about5921 him, Turn,5437 and slay4191 the priests3548 of the LORD;3068 because3588 their hand3027 also1571 is with5973 David,1732 and because3588 they knew3045 when3588 he1931 fled,1272 and did not3808 show1540 853 it to me.241 But the servants5650 of the king4428 would14 not3808 put forth7971 853 their hand3027 to fall6293 upon the priests3548 of the LORD.3068

18  And the king4428 said559 to Doeg,1673 Turn5437 thou,859 and fall6293 upon the priests.3548 And Doeg1673 the Edomite130 turned,5437 and he1931 fell6293 upon the priests,3548 and slew4191 on that1931 day3117 fourscore8084 and five2568 persons376 that did wear5375 a linen906 ephod.646

19  And Nob,5011 the city5892 of the priests,3548 smote5221 he with the edge6310 of the sword,2719 both men4480 376 and women,802 children4480 5768 and sucklings,3243 and oxen,7794 and asses,2543 and sheep,7716 with the edge6310 of the sword.2719

20  And one259 of the sons1121 of Ahimelech288 the son1121 of Ahitub,285 named8034 Abiathar,54 escaped,4422 and fled1272 after310 David.1732

21  And Abiathar54 showed5046 David1732 that3588 Saul7586 had slain2026 853 the LORD's3068 priests.3548

22  And David1732 said559 unto Abiathar,54 I knew3045 it that1931 day,3117 when3588 Doeg1673 the Edomite130 was there,8033 that3588 he would surely tell5046 5046 Saul:7586 I595 have occasioned5437 the death of all3605 the persons5315 of thy father's1 house.1004

23  Abide3427 thou with854 me, fear3372 not:408 for3588 he that834 seeketh1245 853 my life5315 seeketh1245 853 thy life:5315 but3588 with5973 me thou859 shalt be in safeguard.4931


1 καὶ ἀπῆλθεν ἐκεῖθεν Δαυιδ καὶ διεσώθη καὶ ἔρχεται εἰς τὸ σπήλαιον τὸ Οδολλαμ καὶ ἀκούουσιν οἱ ἀδελφοὶ αὐτοῦ καὶ ὁ οἶκος τοῦ πατρὸς αὐτοῦ καὶ καταβαίνουσιν πρὸς αὐτὸν ἐκεῖ

2 καὶ συνήγοντο πρὸς αὐτὸν πᾶς ἐν ἀνάγκῃ καὶ πᾶς ὑπόχρεως καὶ πᾶς κατώδυνος ψυχῇ καὶ ἦν ἐπ᾽ αὐτῶν ἡγούμενος καὶ ἦσαν μετ᾽ αὐτοῦ ὡς τετρακόσιοι ἄνδρες

3 καὶ ἀπῆλθεν Δαυιδ ἐκεῖθεν εἰς Μασσηφα τῆς Μωαβ καὶ εἶπεν πρὸς βασιλέα Μωαβ γινέσθωσαν δὴ ὁ πατήρ μου καὶ ἡ μήτηρ μου παρὰ σοί ἕως ὅτου γνῶ τί ποιήσει μοι ὁ θεός

4 καὶ παρεκάλεσεν τὸ πρόσωπον τοῦ βασιλέως Μωαβ καὶ κατῴκουν μετ᾽ αὐτοῦ πάσας τὰς ἡμέρας ὄντος τοῦ Δαυιδ ἐν τῇ περιοχῇ

5 καὶ εἶπεν Γαδ ὁ προφήτης πρὸς Δαυιδ μὴ κάθου ἐν τῇ περιοχῇ πορεύου καὶ ἥξεις εἰς γῆν Ιουδα καὶ ἐπορεύθη Δαυιδ καὶ ἦλθεν καὶ ἐκάθισεν ἐν πόλει Σαριχ

6 καὶ ἤκουσεν Σαουλ ὅτι ἔγνωσται Δαυιδ καὶ οἱ ἄνδρες οἱ μετ᾽ αὐτοῦ καὶ Σαουλ ἐκάθητο ἐν τῷ βουνῷ ὑπὸ τὴν ἄρουραν τὴν ἐν Ραμα καὶ τὸ δόρυ ἐν τῇ χειρὶ αὐτοῦ καὶ πάντες οἱ παῖδες αὐτοῦ παρειστήκεισαν αὐτῷ

7 καὶ εἶπεν Σαουλ πρὸς τοὺς παῖδας αὐτοῦ τοὺς παρεστηκότας αὐτῷ καὶ εἶπεν αὐτοῖς ἀκούσατε δή υἱοὶ Βενιαμιν εἰ ἀληθῶς πᾶσιν ὑμῖν δώσει ὁ υἱὸς Ιεσσαι ἀγροὺς καὶ ἀμπελῶνας καὶ πάντας ὑμᾶς τάξει ἑκατοντάρχους καὶ χιλιάρχους

8 ὅτι σύγκεισθε πάντες ὑμεῖς ἐπ᾽ ἐμέ καὶ οὐκ ἔστιν ὁ ἀποκαλύπτων τὸ ὠτίον μου ἐν τῷ διαθέσθαι τὸν υἱόν μου διαθήκην μετὰ τοῦ υἱοῦ Ιεσσαι καὶ οὐκ ἔστιν πονῶν περὶ ἐμοῦ ἐξ ὑμῶν καὶ ἀποκαλύπτων τὸ ὠτίον μου ὅτι ἐπήγειρεν ὁ υἱός μου τὸν δοῦλόν μου ἐπ᾽ ἐμὲ εἰς ἐχθρὸν ὡς ἡ ἡμέρα αὕτη

9 καὶ ἀποκρίνεται Δωηκ ὁ Σύρος ὁ καθεστηκὼς ἐπὶ τὰς ἡμιόνους Σαουλ καὶ εἶπεν ἑόρακα τὸν υἱὸν Ιεσσαι παραγινόμενον εἰς Νομβα πρὸς Αβιμελεχ υἱὸν Αχιτωβ τὸν ἱερέα

10 καὶ ἠρώτα αὐτῷ διὰ τοῦ θεοῦ καὶ ἐπισιτισμὸν ἔδωκεν αὐτῷ καὶ τὴν ῥομφαίαν Γολιαδ τοῦ ἀλλοφύλου ἔδωκεν αὐτῷ

11 καὶ ἀπέστειλεν ὁ βασιλεὺς καλέσαι τὸν Αβιμελεχ υἱὸν Αχιτωβ καὶ πάντας τοὺς υἱοὺς τοῦ πατρὸς αὐτοῦ τοὺς ἱερεῖς τοὺς ἐν Νομβα καὶ παρεγένοντο πάντες πρὸς τὸν βασιλέα

12 καὶ εἶπεν Σαουλ ἄκουε δή υἱὲ Αχιτωβ καὶ εἶπεν ἰδοὺ ἐγώ λάλει κύριε

13 καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῷ Σαουλ ἵνα τί συνέθου κατ᾽ ἐμοῦ σὺ καὶ ὁ υἱὸς Ιεσσαι δοῦναί σε αὐτῷ ἄρτον καὶ ῥομφαίαν καὶ ἐρωτᾶν αὐτῷ διὰ τοῦ θεοῦ θέσθαι αὐτὸν ἐπ᾽ ἐμὲ εἰς ἐχθρὸν ὡς ἡ ἡμέρα αὕτη

14 καὶ ἀπεκρίθη τῷ βασιλεῖ καὶ εἶπεν καὶ τίς ἐν πᾶσιν τοῖς δούλοις σου ὡς Δαυιδ πιστὸς καὶ γαμβρὸς τοῦ βασιλέως καὶ ἄρχων παντὸς παραγγέλματός σου καὶ ἔνδοξος ἐν τῷ οἴκῳ σου

15 ἦ σήμερον ἦργμαι ἐρωτᾶν αὐτῷ διὰ τοῦ θεοῦ μηδαμῶς μὴ δότω ὁ βασιλεὺς κατὰ τοῦ δούλου αὐτοῦ λόγον καὶ ἐφ᾽ ὅλον τὸν οἶκον τοῦ πατρός μου ὅτι οὐκ ᾔδει ὁ δοῦλος ὁ σὸς ἐν πᾶσιν τούτοις ῥῆμα μικρὸν ἢ μέγα

16 καὶ εἶπεν ὁ βασιλεὺς Σαουλ θανάτῳ ἀποθανῇ Αβιμελεχ σὺ καὶ πᾶς ὁ οἶκος τοῦ πατρός σου

17 καὶ εἶπεν ὁ βασιλεὺς τοῖς παρατρέχουσιν τοῖς ἐφεστηκόσιν ἐπ᾽ αὐτόν προσαγάγετε καὶ θανατοῦτε τοὺς ἱερεῖς τοῦ κυρίου ὅτι ἡ χεὶρ αὐτῶν μετὰ Δαυιδ καὶ ὅτι ἔγνωσαν ὅτι φεύγει αὐτός καὶ οὐκ ἀπεκάλυψαν τὸ ὠτίον μου καὶ οὐκ ἐβουλήθησαν οἱ παῖδες τοῦ βασιλέως ἐπενεγκεῖν τὰς χεῖρας αὐτῶν ἀπαντῆσαι εἰς τοὺς ἱερεῖς κυρίου

18 καὶ εἶπεν ὁ βασιλεὺς τῷ Δωηκ ἐπιστρέφου σὺ καὶ ἀπάντα εἰς τοὺς ἱερεῖς καὶ ἐπεστράφη Δωηκ ὁ Σύρος καὶ ἐθανάτωσεν τοὺς ἱερεῖς κυρίου ἐν τῇ ἡμέρᾳ ἐκείνῃ τριακοσίους καὶ πέντε ἄνδρας πάντας αἴροντας εφουδ

19 καὶ τὴν Νομβα τὴν πόλιν τῶν ἱερέων ἐπάταξεν ἐν στόματι ῥομφαίας ἀπὸ ἀνδρὸς ἕως γυναικός ἀπὸ νηπίου ἕως θηλάζοντος καὶ μόσχου καὶ ὄνου καὶ προβάτου

20 καὶ διασῴζεται υἱὸς εἷς τῷ Αβιμελεχ υἱῷ Αχιτωβ καὶ ὄνομα αὐτῷ Αβιαθαρ καὶ ἔφυγεν ὀπίσω Δαυιδ

21 καὶ ἀπήγγειλεν Αβιαθαρ τῷ Δαυιδ ὅτι ἐθανάτωσεν Σαουλ πάντας τοὺς ἱερεῖς τοῦ κυρίου

22 καὶ εἶπεν Δαυιδ τῷ Αβιαθαρ ἤιδειν ἐν τῇ ἡμέρᾳ ἐκείνῃ ὅτι Δωηκ ὁ Σύρος ὅτι ἀπαγγέλλων ἀπαγγελεῖ τῷ Σαουλ ἐγώ εἰμι αἴτιος τῶν ψυχῶν οἴκου τοῦ πατρός σου

23 κάθου μετ᾽ ἐμοῦ μὴ φοβοῦ ὅτι οὗ ἐὰν ζητῶ τῇ ψυχῇ μου τόπον ζητήσω καὶ τῇ ψυχῇ σου ὅτι πεφύλαξαι σὺ παρ᾽ ἐμοί

1 Abiit ergo David inde, et fugit in speluncam Odollam. Quod cum audissent fratres ejus, et omnis domus patris ejus, descenderunt ad eum illuc.

2 Et convenerunt ad eum omnes qui erant in angustia constituti, et oppressi ære alieno, et amaro animo: et factus est eorum princeps, fueruntque cum eo quasi quadringenti viri.

3 Et profectus est David inde in Maspha, quæ est Moab: et dixit ad regem Moab: Maneat, oro, pater meus et mater mea vobiscum, donec sciam quid faciat mihi Deus.

4 Et reliquit eos ante faciem regis Moab: manseruntque apud eum cunctis diebus quibus David fuit in præsidio.

5 Dixitque Gad propheta ad David: Noli manere in præsidio: proficiscere, et vade in terram Juda. Et profectus est David, et venit in saltum Haret.

6 Et audivit Saul quod apparuisset David, et viri qui erant cum eo. Saul autem cum maneret in Gabaa, et esset in nemore quod est in Rama, hastam manu tenens, cunctique servi ejus circumstarent eum,

7 ait ad servos suos qui assistebant ei: Audite nunc, filii Jemini: numquid omnibus vobis dabit filius Isai agros et vineas, et universos vos faciet tribunos et centuriones?

8 quoniam conjurastis omnes adversum me, et non est qui mihi renuntiet, maxime cum et filius meus fœdus inierit cum filio Isai. Non est qui vicem meam doleat ex vobis, nec qui annuntiet mihi: eo quod suscitaverit filius meus servum meum adversum me, insidiantem mihi usque hodie.

9 Respondens autem Doëg Idumæus, qui assistebat, et erat primus inter servos Saul: Vidi, inquit, filium Isai in Nobe apud Achimelech filium Achitob sacerdotem.

10 Qui consuluit pro eo Dominum, et cibaria dedit ei: sed et gladium Goliath Philisthæi dedit illi.

11 Misit ergo rex ad accersendum Achimelech sacerdotem filium Achitob, et omnem domum patris ejus, sacerdotum qui erant in Nobe, qui universi venerunt ad regem.

12 Et ait Saul ad Achimelech: Audi, fili Achitob. Qui respondit: Præsto sum, domine.

13 Dixitque ad eum Saul: Quare conjurastis adversum me, tu et filius Isai, et dedisti ei panes et gladium, et consuluisti pro eo Deum, ut consurgeret adversum me, insidiator usque hodie permanens?

14 Respondensque Achimelech regi, ait: Et quis in omnibus servis tuis sicut David, fidelis, et gener regis, et pergens ad imperium tuum, et gloriosus in domo tua?

15 num hodie cœpi pro eo consulere Deum? absit hoc a me: ne suspicetur rex adversus servum suum rem hujuscemodi, in universa domo patris mei: non enim scivit servus tuus quidquam super hoc negotio, vel modicum vel grande.

16 Dixitque rex: Morte morieris Achimelech, tu et omnis domus patris tui.

17 Et ait rex emissariis qui circumstabant eum: Convertimini, et interficite sacerdotes Domini, nam manus eorum cum David est: scientes quod fugisset, et non indicaverunt mihi. Noluerunt autem servi regis extendere manus suas in sacerdotes Domini.

18 Et ait rex ad Doëg: Convertere tu, et irrue in sacerdotes. Conversusque Doëg Idumæus, irruit in sacerdotes, et trucidavit in die illa octoginta quinque viros vestitos ephod lineo.

19 Nobe autem civitatem sacerdotum percussit in ore gladii, viros et mulieres, et parvulos et lactentes, bovemque, et asinum, et ovem in ore gladii.

20 Evadens autem unus filius Achimelech filii Achitob, cujus nomen erat Abiathar, fugit ad David,

21 et annuntiavit ei quod occidisset Saul sacerdotes Domini.

22 Et ait David ad Abiathar: Sciebam in die illa quod cum ibi esset Doëg Idumæus, procul dubio annuntiaret Sauli: ego sum reus omnium animarum patris tui.

23 Mane mecum: ne timeas: si quis quæsierit animam meam, quæret et animam tuam, mecumque servaberis.
