1 Samuel 28


1  And it came to pass1961 in those1992 days,3117 that the Philistines6430 gathered together6908 853 their armies4264 for warfare,6635 to fight3898 with Israel.3478 And Achish397 said559 unto413 David,1732 Know thou assuredly,3045 3045 that3588 thou shalt go out3318 with854 me to battle,4264 thou859 and thy men.376

2  And David1732 said559 to413 Achish,397 Surely3651 thou859 shalt know3045 853 what834 thy servant5650 can do.6213 And Achish397 said559 to413 David,1732 Therefore3651 will I make7760 thee keeper8104 of mine head7218 forever.3605 3117

3  Now Samuel8050 was dead,4191 and all3605 Israel3478 had lamented5594 him, and buried6912 him in Ramah,7414 even in his own city.5892 And Saul7586 had put away5493 those that had familiar spirits,178 and the wizards,3049 out of the land.4480 776

4  And the Philistines6430 gathered themselves together,6908 and came935 and pitched2583 in Shunem:7766 and Saul7586 gathered all Israel together,6908 853 3605 3478 and they pitched2583 in Gilboa.1533

5  And when Saul7586 saw7200 853 the host4264 of the Philistines,6430 he was afraid,3372 and his heart3820 greatly3966 trembled.2729

6  And when Saul7586 inquired7592 of the LORD,3068 the LORD3068 answered6030 him not,3808 neither1571 by dreams,2472 nor1571 by Urim,224 nor1571 by prophets.5030

7  Then said559 Saul7586 unto his servants,5650 Seek1245 me a woman802 that hath1172 a familiar spirit,178 that I may go1980 to413 her, and inquire1875 of her. And his servants5650 said559 to413 him, Behold,2009 there is a woman802 that hath1172 a familiar spirit178 at Endor.5874

8  And Saul7586 disguised himself,2664 and put on3847 other312 raiment,899 and he1931 went,1980 and two8147 men376 with5973 him, and they came935 to413 the woman802 by night:3915 and he said,559 I pray thee,4994 divine7080 unto me by the familiar spirit,178 and bring5927 me him up, 853 whom834 I shall name559 unto413 thee.

9  And the woman802 said559 unto413 him, Behold,2009 thou859 knowest3045 853 what834 Saul7586 hath done,6213 how834 he hath cut off3772 853 those that have familiar spirits,178 and the wizards,3049 out of4480 the land:776 wherefore4100 then layest thou859 a snare5367 for my life,5315 to cause me to die?4191

10  And Saul7586 swore7650 to her by the LORD,3068 saying,559 As the LORD3068 liveth,2416 there shall no518 punishment5771 happen7136 to thee for this2088 thing.1697

11  Then said559 the woman,802 853 Whom4130 shall I bring up5927 unto thee? And he said,559 Bring me up5927 853 Samuel.8050

12  And when the woman802 saw7200 853 Samuel,8050 she cried2199 with a loud1419 voice:6963 and the woman802 spoke559 to413 Saul,7586 saying,559 Why4100 hast thou deceived7411 me? for thou859 art Saul.7586

13  And the king4428 said559 unto her, Be not408 afraid:3372 for3588 what4100 sawest7200 thou? And the woman802 said559 unto413 Saul,7586 I saw7200 gods430 ascending5927 out of4480 the earth.776

14  And he said559 unto her, What4100 form8389 is he of? And she said,559 An old2205 man376 cometh up;5927 and he1931 is covered5844 with a mantle.4598 And Saul7586 perceived3045 that3588 it was Samuel,8050 and he1931 stooped6915 with his face639 to the ground,776 and bowed himself.7812

15  And Samuel8050 said559 to413 Saul,7586 Why4100 hast thou disquieted7264 me, to bring me up?5927 853 And Saul7586 answered,559 I am sore3966 distressed;6887 for the Philistines6430 make war3898 against me, and God430 is departed5493 from4480 5921 me, and answereth6030 me no3808 more,5750 neither1571 by3027 prophets,5030 nor1571 by dreams:2472 therefore I have called7121 thee, that thou mayest make known3045 unto me what4100 I shall do.6213

16  Then said559 Samuel,8050 Wherefore4100 then dost thou ask7592 of me, seeing the LORD3068 is departed5493 from4480 5921 thee, and is become1961 thine enemy?6145

17  And the LORD3068 hath done6213 to him, as834 he spoke1696 by3027 me: for the LORD3068 hath rent7167 853 the kingdom4467 out of thine hand,4480 3027 and given5414 it to thy neighbor,7453 even to David:1732

18  Because834 thou obeyedst8085 not3808 the voice6963 of the LORD,3068 nor3808 executedst6213 his fierce2740 wrath639 upon Amalek,6002 therefore5921 3651 hath the LORD3068 done6213 this2088 thing1697 unto thee this2088 day.3117

19  Moreover1571 the LORD3068 will also deliver5414 853 Israel3478 with5973 thee into the hand3027 of the Philistines:6430 and tomorrow4279 shalt thou859 and thy sons1121 be with5973 me: the LORD3068 also1571 shall deliver5414 853 the host4264 of Israel3478 into the hand3027 of the Philistines.6430

20  Then Saul7586 fell5307 straightway4116 all along4393 6967 on the earth,776 and was sore3966 afraid,3372 because of the words4480 1697 of Samuel:8050 and1571 there was1961 no3808 strength3581 in him; for3588 he had eaten398 no3808 bread3899 all3605 the day,3117 nor all3605 the night.3915

21  And the woman802 came935 unto413 Saul,7586 and saw7200 that3588 he was sore3966 troubled,926 and said559 unto413 him, Behold,2009 thine handmaid8198 hath obeyed8085 thy voice,6963 and I have put7760 my life5315 in my hand,3709 and have hearkened8085 unto 853 thy words1697 which834 thou spokest1696 unto413 me.

22  Now6258 therefore, I pray thee,4994 hearken8085 thou859 also1571 unto the voice6963 of thine handmaid,8198 and let me set7760 a morsel6595 of bread3899 before6440 thee; and eat,398 that thou mayest have1961 strength,3581 when3588 thou goest1980 on thy way.1870

23  But he refused,3985 and said,559 I will not3808 eat.398 But his servants,5650 together with1571 the woman,802 compelled6555 him; and he hearkened8085 unto their voice.6963 So he arose6965 from the earth,4480 776 and sat3427 upon413 the bed.4296

24  And the woman802 had a fat4770 calf5695 in the house;1004 and she hasted,4116 and killed2076 it, and took3947 flour,7058 and kneaded3888 it, and did bake644 unleavened bread4682 thereof:

25  And she brought5066 it before6440 Saul,7586 and before6440 his servants;5650 and they did eat.398 Then they rose up,6965 and went away1980 that1931 night.3915


1 καὶ ἐγενήθη ἐν ταῖς ἡμέραις ἐκείναις καὶ συναθροίζονται ἀλλόφυλοι ἐν ταῖς παρεμβολαῖς αὐτῶν ἐξελθεῖν πολεμεῖν μετὰ Ισραηλ καὶ εἶπεν Αγχους πρὸς Δαυιδ γινώσκων γνώσει ὅτι μετ᾽ ἐμοῦ ἐξελεύσει εἰς πόλεμον σὺ καὶ οἱ ἄνδρες σου

2 καὶ εἶπεν Δαυιδ πρὸς Αγχους οὕτω νῦν γνώσει ἃ ποιήσει ὁ δοῦλός σου καὶ εἶπεν Αγχους πρὸς Δαυιδ οὕτως ἀρχισωματοφύλακα θήσομαί σε πάσας τὰς ἡμέρας

3 καὶ Σαμουηλ ἀπέθανεν καὶ ἐκόψαντο αὐτὸν πᾶς Ισραηλ καὶ θάπτουσιν αὐτὸν ἐν Αρμαθαιμ ἐν πόλει αὐτοῦ καὶ Σαουλ περιεῖλεν τοὺς ἐγγαστριμύθους καὶ τοὺς γνώστας ἀπὸ τῆς γῆς

4 καὶ συναθροίζονται οἱ ἀλλόφυλοι καὶ ἔρχονται καὶ παρεμβάλλουσιν εἰς Σωμαν καὶ συναθροίζει Σαουλ πάντα ἄνδρα Ισραηλ καὶ παρεμβάλλουσιν εἰς Γελβουε

5 καὶ εἶδεν Σαουλ τὴν παρεμβολὴν τῶν ἀλλοφύλων καὶ ἐφοβήθη καὶ ἐξέστη ἡ καρδία αὐτοῦ σφόδρα

6 καὶ ἐπηρώτησεν Σαουλ διὰ κυρίου καὶ οὐκ ἀπεκρίθη αὐτῷ κύριος ἐν τοῖς ἐνυπνίοις καὶ ἐν τοῖς δήλοις καὶ ἐν τοῖς προφήταις

7 καὶ εἶπεν Σαουλ τοῖς παισὶν αὐτοῦ ζητήσατέ μοι γυναῖκα ἐγγαστρίμυθον καὶ πορεύσομαι πρὸς αὐτὴν καὶ ζητήσω ἐν αὐτῇ καὶ εἶπαν οἱ παῖδες αὐτοῦ πρὸς αὐτόν ἰδοὺ γυνὴ ἐγγαστρίμυθος ἐν Αενδωρ

8 καὶ συνεκαλύψατο Σαουλ καὶ περιεβάλετο ἱμάτια ἕτερα καὶ πορεύεται αὐτὸς καὶ δύο ἄνδρες μετ᾽ αὐτοῦ καὶ ἔρχονται πρὸς τὴν γυναῖκα νυκτὸς καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῇ μάντευσαι δή μοι ἐν τῷ ἐγγαστριμύθῳ καὶ ἀνάγαγέ μοι ὃν ἐὰν εἴπω σοι

9 καὶ εἶπεν ἡ γυνὴ πρὸς αὐτόν ἰδοὺ δὴ σὺ οἶδας ὅσα ἐποίησεν Σαουλ ὡς ἐξωλέθρευσεν τοὺς ἐγγαστριμύθους καὶ τοὺς γνώστας ἀπὸ τῆς γῆς καὶ ἵνα τί σὺ παγιδεύεις τὴν ψυχήν μου θανατῶσαι αὐτήν

10 καὶ ὤμοσεν αὐτῇ Σαουλ λέγων ζῇ κύριος εἰ ἀπαντήσεταί σοι ἀδικία ἐν τῷ λόγῳ τούτῳ

11 καὶ εἶπεν ἡ γυνή τίνα ἀναγάγω σοι καὶ εἶπεν τὸν Σαμουηλ ἀνάγαγέ μοι

12 καὶ εἶδεν ἡ γυνὴ τὸν Σαμουηλ καὶ ἀνεβόησεν φωνῇ μεγάλῃ καὶ εἶπεν ἡ γυνὴ πρὸς Σαουλ ἵνα τί παρελογίσω με καὶ σὺ εἶ Σαουλ

13 καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῇ ὁ βασιλεύς μὴ φοβοῦ εἰπὸν τίνα ἑόρακας καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῷ Θεοὺς ἑόρακα ἀναβαίνοντας ἐκ τῆς γῆς

14 καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῇ τί ἔγνως καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῷ ἄνδρα ὄρθιον ἀναβαίνοντα ἐκ τῆς γῆς καὶ οὗτος διπλοΐδα ἀναβεβλημένος καὶ ἔγνω Σαουλ ὅτι Σαμουηλ οὗτος καὶ ἔκυψεν ἐπὶ πρόσωπον αὐτοῦ ἐπὶ τὴν γῆν καὶ προσεκύνησεν αὐτῷ

15 καὶ εἶπεν Σαμουηλ ἵνα τί παρηνώχλησάς μοι ἀναβῆναί με καὶ εἶπεν Σαουλ θλίβομαι σφόδρα καὶ οἱ ἀλλόφυλοι πολεμοῦσιν ἐν ἐμοί καὶ ὁ θεὸς ἀφέστηκεν ἀπ᾽ ἐμοῦ καὶ οὐκ ἐπακήκοέν μοι ἔτι καὶ ἐν χειρὶ τῶν προφητῶν καὶ ἐν τοῖς ἐνυπνίοις καὶ νῦν κέκληκά σε γνωρίσαι μοι τί ποιήσω

16 καὶ εἶπεν Σαμουηλ ἵνα τί ἐπερωτᾷς με καὶ κύριος ἀφέστηκεν ἀπὸ σοῦ καὶ γέγονεν μετὰ τοῦ πλησίον σου

17 καὶ πεποίηκεν κύριός σοι καθὼς ἐλάλησεν ἐν χειρί μου καὶ διαρρήξει κύριος τὴν βασιλείαν σου ἐκ χειρός σου καὶ δώσει αὐτὴν τῷ πλησίον σου τῷ Δαυιδ

18 διότι οὐκ ἤκουσας φωνῆς κυρίου καὶ οὐκ ἐποίησας θυμὸν ὀργῆς αὐτοῦ ἐν Αμαληκ διὰ τοῦτο τὸ ῥῆμα ἐποίησεν κύριός σοι τῇ ἡμέρᾳ ταύτῃ

19 καὶ παραδώσει κύριος τὸν Ισραηλ μετὰ σοῦ εἰς χεῖρας ἀλλοφύλων καὶ αὔριον σὺ καὶ οἱ υἱοί σου μετὰ σοῦ πεσοῦνται καὶ τὴν παρεμβολὴν Ισραηλ δώσει κύριος εἰς χεῖρας ἀλλοφύλων

20 καὶ ἔσπευσεν Σαουλ καὶ ἔπεσεν ἑστηκὼς ἐπὶ τὴν γῆν καὶ ἐφοβήθη σφόδρα ἀπὸ τῶν λόγων Σαμουηλ καὶ ἰσχὺς ἐν αὐτῷ οὐκ ἦν ἔτι οὐ γὰρ ἔφαγεν ἄρτον ὅλην τὴν ἡμέραν καὶ ὅλην τὴν νύκτα ἐκείνην

21 καὶ εἰσῆλθεν ἡ γυνὴ πρὸς Σαουλ καὶ εἶδεν ὅτι ἔσπευσεν σφόδρα καὶ εἶπεν πρὸς αὐτόν ἰδοὺ δὴ ἤκουσεν ἡ δούλη σου τῆς φωνῆς σου καὶ ἐθέμην τὴν ψυχήν μου ἐν τῇ χειρί μου καὶ ἤκουσα τοὺς λόγους οὓς ἐλάλησάς μοι

22 καὶ νῦν ἄκουσον δὴ φωνῆς τῆς δούλης σου καὶ παραθήσω ἐνώπιόν σου ψωμὸν ἄρτου καὶ φάγε καὶ ἔσται ἐν σοὶ ἰσχύς ὅτι πορεύσῃ ἐν ὁδῷ

23 καὶ οὐκ ἐβουλήθη φαγεῖν καὶ παρεβιάζοντο αὐτὸν οἱ παῖδες αὐτοῦ καὶ ἡ γυνή καὶ ἤκουσεν τῆς φωνῆς αὐτῶν καὶ ἀνέστη ἀπὸ τῆς γῆς καὶ ἐκάθισεν ἐπὶ τὸν δίφρον

24 καὶ τῇ γυναικὶ ἦν δάμαλις νομὰς ἐν τῇ οἰκίᾳ καὶ ἔσπευσεν καὶ ἔθυσεν αὐτὴν καὶ ἔλαβεν ἄλευρα καὶ ἐφύρασεν καὶ ἔπεψεν ἄζυμα

25 καὶ προσήγαγεν ἐνώπιον Σαουλ καὶ ἐνώπιον τῶν παίδων αὐτοῦ καὶ ἔφαγον καὶ ἀνέστησαν καὶ ἀπῆλθον τὴν νύκτα ἐκείνην

1 Factum est autem in diebus illis, congregaverunt Philisthiim agmina sua, ut præpararentur ad bellum contra Israël: dixitque Achis ad David: Sciens nunc scito quoniam mecum egredieris in castris, tu et viri tui.

2 Dixitque David ad Achis: Nunc scies quæ facturus est servus tuus. Et ait Achis ad David: Et ego custodem capitis mei ponam te cunctis diebus.

3 Samuel autem mortuus est, planxitque eum omnis Israël, et sepelierunt eum in Ramatha urbe sua. Et Saul abstulit magos et hariolos de terra.

4 Congregatique sunt Philisthiim, et venerunt, et castrametati sunt in Sunam: congregavit autem et Saul universum Israël, et venit in Gelboë.

5 Et vidit Saul castra Philisthiim, et timuit, et expavit cor ejus nimis.

6 Consuluitque Dominum, et non respondit ei neque per somnia, neque per sacerdotes, neque per prophetas.

7 Dixitque Saul servis suis: Quærite mihi mulierem habentem pythonem, et vadam ad eam, et sciscitabor per illam. Et dixerunt servi ejus ad eum: Est mulier pythonem habens in Endor.

8 Mutavit ergo habitum suum, vestitusque est aliis vestimentis, et abiit ipse, et duo viri cum eo: veneruntque ad mulierem nocte, et ait illi: Divina mihi in pythone, et suscita mihi quem dixero tibi.

9 Et ait mulier ad eum: Ecce, tu nosti quanta fecerit Saul, et quomodo eraserit magos et hariolos de terra: quare ergo insidiaris animæ meæ, ut occidar?

10 Et juravit ei Saul in Domino, dicens: Vivit Dominus, quia non eveniet tibi quidquam mali propter hanc rem.

11 Dixitque ei mulier: Quem suscitabo tibi? Qui ait: Samuelem mihi suscita.

12 Cum autem vidisset mulier Samuelem, exclamavit voce magna, et dixit ad Saul: Quare imposuisti mihi? tu es enim Saul.

13 Dixitque ei rex: Noli timere: quid vidisti? Et ait mulier ad Saul: Deos vidi ascendentes de terra.

14 Dixitque ei: Qualis est forma ejus? Quæ ait: Vir senex ascendit, et ipse amictus est pallio. Et intellexit Saul quod Samuel esset, et inclinavit se super faciem suam in terra, et adoravit.

15 Dixit autem Samuel ad Saul: Quare inquietasti me ut suscitarer? Et ait Saul: Coarctor nimis: siquidem Philisthiim pugnant adversum me, et Deus recessit a me, et exaudire me noluit neque in manu prophetarum, neque per somnia: vocavi ergo te, ut ostenderes mihi quid faciam.

16 Et ait Samuel: Quid interrogas me, cum Dominus recesserit a te, et transierit ad æmulum tuum?

17 Faciet enim tibi Dominus sicut locutus est in manu mea, et scindet regnum tuum de manu tua et dabit illud proximo tuo David:

18 quia non obedisti voci Domini, neque fecisti iram furoris ejus in Amalec: idcirco quod pateris, fecit tibi Dominus hodie.

19 Et dabit Dominus etiam Israël tecum in manus Philisthiim: cras autem tu et filii tui mecum eritis: sed et castra Israël tradet Dominus in manus Philisthiim.

20 Statimque Saul cecidit porrectus in terram: extimuerat enim verba Samuelis, et robur non erat in eo, quia non comederat panem tota die illa.

21 Ingressa est itaque mulier illa ad Saul (conturbatus enim erat valde), dixitque ad eum: Ecce obedivit ancilla tua voci tuæ, et posui animam meam in manu mea: et audivi sermones tuos, quos locutus es ad me.

22 Nunc igitur audi et tu vocem ancillæ tuæ, et ponam coram te buccellam panis, ut comedens convalescas, et possis iter agere.

23 Qui renuit, et ait: Non comedam. Coëgerunt autem eum servi sui et mulier, et tandem audita voce eorum surrexit de terra, et sedit super lectum.

24 Mulier autem illa habebat vitulum pascualem in domo, et festinavit, et occidit eum: tollensque farinam, miscuit eam, et coxit azyma,

25 et posuit ante Saul et ante servos ejus. Qui cum comedissent, surrexerunt, et ambulaverunt per totam noctem illam.
