2 Samuel 21


1  Then there was1961 a famine7458 in the days3117 of David1732 three7969 years,8141 year8141 after310 year;8141 and David1732 inquired1245 6440 of the LORD.3068 And the LORD3068 answered,559 It is for413 Saul,7586 and for413 his bloody1818 house,1004 because5921 834 he slew4191 853 the Gibeonites.1393

2  And the king4428 called7121 the Gibeonites,1393 and said559 unto413 them; (now the Gibeonites1393 were not3808 of the children4480 1121 of Israel,3478 but3588 518 of the remnant4480 3499 of the Amorites;567 and the children1121 of Israel3478 had sworn7650 unto them: and Saul7586 sought1245 to slay5221 them in his zeal7065 to the children1121 of Israel3478 and Judah.)3063

3  Wherefore David1732 said559 unto413 the Gibeonites,1393 What4100 shall I do6213 for you? and wherewith4100 shall I make the atonement,3722 that ye may bless1288 853 the inheritance5159 of the LORD?3068

4  And the Gibeonites1393 said559 unto him, We will have no369 silver3701 nor gold2091 of5973 Saul,7586 nor of5973 his house;1004 neither369 for us shalt thou kill4191 any man376 in Israel.3478 And he said,559 What4100 ye859 shall say,559 that will I do6213 for you.

5  And they answered559 413 the king,4428 The man376 that834 consumed3615 us, and that834 devised1819 against us that we should be destroyed8045 from remaining4480 3320 in any3605 of the coasts1366 of Israel,3478

6  Let seven7651 men376 of his sons4480 1121 be delivered5414 unto us, and we will hang3363 them up unto the LORD3068 in Gibeah1390 of Saul,7586 whom the LORD3068 did choose.972 And the king4428 said,559 I589 will give5414 them.

7  But the king4428 spared2550 5921 Mephibosheth,4648 the son1121 of Jonathan3083 the son1121 of Saul,7586 because5921 of the LORD's3068 oath7621 that834 was between996 them, between996 David1732 and Jonathan3083 the son1121 of Saul.7586

8  But the king4428 took3947 853 the two8147 sons1121 of Rizpah7532 the daughter1323 of Aiah,345 whom834 she bore3205 unto Saul,7586 853 Armoni764 and Mephibosheth;4648 and the five2568 sons1121 of Michal4324 the daughter1323 of Saul,7586 whom834 she brought up3205 for Adriel5741 the son1121 of Barzillai1271 the Meholathite:4259

9  And he delivered5414 them into the hands3027 of the Gibeonites,1393 and they hanged3363 them in the hill2022 before6440 the LORD:3068 and they fell5307 all seven7651 together,3162 and were put to death4191 in the days3117 of harvest,7105 in the first7223 days, in the beginning8462 of barley8184 harvest.7105

10  And Rizpah7532 the daughter1323 of Aiah345 took3947 853 sackcloth,8242 and spread5186 it for her upon413 the rock,6697 from the beginning4480 8462 of harvest7105 until5704 water4325 dropped5413 upon5921 them out of4480 heaven,8064 and suffered5414 neither3808 the birds5775 of the air8064 to rest5117 on5921 them by day,3119 nor the beasts2416 of the field7704 by night.3915

11  And it was told5046 David1732 853 what834 Rizpah7532 the daughter1323 of Aiah,345 the concubine6370 of Saul,7586 had done.6213

12  And David1732 went1980 and took3947 853 the bones6106 of Saul7586 and the bones6106 of Jonathan3083 his son1121 from4480 854 the men1167 of Jabesh-gilead,3003 1568 which834 had stolen1589 them from the street4480 7339 of Beth-shan,1052 where834 8033 the Philistines6430 had hanged8511 them, when3117 the Philistines6430 had slain5221 853 Saul7586 in Gilboa:1533

13  And he brought up5927 from thence4480 8033 853 the bones6106 of Saul7586 and the bones6106 of Jonathan3083 his son;1121 and they gathered622 853 the bones6106 of them that were hanged.3363

14  And 853 the bones6106 of Saul7586 and Jonathan3083 his son1121 buried6912 they in the country776 of Benjamin1144 in Zelah,6762 in the sepulcher6913 of Kish7027 his father:1 and they performed6213 all3605 that834 the king4428 commanded.6680 And after that310 3651 God430 was entreated6279 for the land.776

15  Moreover the Philistines6430 had1961 yet war4421 again with854 Israel;3478 and David1732 went down,3381 and his servants5650 with5973 him, and fought against3898 853 the Philistines:6430 and David1732 waxed faint.5774

16  And Ishbibenob,3430 which834 was of the sons3211 of the giant,7498 the weight4948 of whose spear7013 weighed three7969 hundred3967 shekels of brass5178 in weight,4948 he1931 being girded2296 with a new2319 sword, thought559 to have slain5221 853 David.1732

17  But Abishai52 the son1121 of Zeruiah6870 succored5826 him, and smote5221 853 the Philistine,6430 and killed4191 him. Then227 the men376 of David1732 swore7650 unto him, saying,559 Thou shalt go3318 no3808 more5750 out with us to battle,4421 that thou quench3518 not3808 853 the light5216 of Israel.3478

18  And it came to pass1961 after310 this,3651 that there was1961 again5750 a battle4421 with5973 the Philistines6430 at Gob:1359 then227 Sibbechai5444 the Hushathite2843 slew5221 853 Saph,5593 which834 was of the sons3211 of the giant.7498

19  And there was1961 again5750 a battle4421 in Gob1359 with5973 the Philistines,6430 where Elhanan445 the son1121 of Jaare-oregim,3296 a Bethlehemite,1022 slew5221 the brother of 853 Goliath1555 the Gittite,1663 the staff6086 of whose spear2595 was like a weaver's707 beam.4500

20  And there was1961 yet5750 a battle4421 in Gath,1661 where was1961 a man376 of great stature,4055 that had on every hand3027 six8337 fingers,676 and on every foot7272 six8337 toes,676 four702 and twenty6242 in number;4557 and he1931 also1571 was born3205 to the giant.7498

21  And when he defied2778 853 Israel,3478 Jonathan3083 the son1121 of Shimea8092 the brother251 of David1732 slew5221 him.

22  These428 853 four702 were born3205 to the giant7498 in Gath,1661 and fell5307 by the hand3027 of David,1732 and by the hand3027 of his servants.5650


1 καὶ ἐγένετο λιμὸς ἐν ταῖς ἡμέραις Δαυιδ τρία ἔτη ἐνιαυτὸς ἐχόμενος ἐνιαυτοῦ καὶ ἐζήτησεν Δαυιδ τὸ πρόσωπον τοῦ κυρίου καὶ εἶπεν κύριος ἐπὶ Σαουλ καὶ ἐπὶ τὸν οἶκον αὐτοῦ ἀδικία διὰ τὸ αὐτὸν θανάτῳ αἱμάτων περὶ οὗ ἐθανάτωσεν τοὺς Γαβαωνίτας

2 καὶ ἐκάλεσεν ὁ βασιλεὺς Δαυιδ τοὺς Γαβαωνίτας καὶ εἶπεν πρὸς αὐτούς καὶ οἱ Γαβαωνῖται οὐχ υἱοὶ Ισραηλ εἰσίν ὅτι ἀλλ᾽ ἢ ἐκ τοῦ λείμματος τοῦ Αμορραίου καὶ οἱ υἱοὶ Ισραηλ ὤμοσαν αὐτοῖς καὶ ἐζήτησεν Σαουλ πατάξαι αὐτοὺς ἐν τῷ ζηλῶσαι αὐτὸν τοὺς υἱοὺς Ισραηλ καὶ Ιουδα

3 καὶ εἶπεν Δαυιδ πρὸς τοὺς Γαβαωνίτας τί ποιήσω ὑμῖν καὶ ἐν τίνι ἐξιλάσομαι καὶ εὐλογήσετε τὴν κληρονομίαν κυρίου

4 καὶ εἶπαν αὐτῷ οἱ Γαβαωνῖται οὐκ ἔστιν ἡμῖν ἀργύριον καὶ χρυσίον μετὰ Σαουλ καὶ μετὰ τοῦ οἴκου αὐτοῦ καὶ οὐκ ἔστιν ἡμῖν ἀνὴρ θανατῶσαι ἐν Ισραηλ καὶ εἶπεν τί ὑμεῖς λέγετε καὶ ποιήσω ὑμῖν

5 καὶ εἶπαν πρὸς τὸν βασιλέα ὁ ἀνὴρ συνετέλεσεν ἐφ᾽ ἡμᾶς καὶ ἐδίωξεν ἡμᾶς ὃς παρελογίσατο ἐξολεθρεῦσαι ἡμᾶς ἀφανίσωμεν αὐτὸν τοῦ μὴ ἑστάναι αὐτὸν ἐν παντὶ ὁρίῳ Ισραηλ

6 δότω ἡμῖν ἑπτὰ ἄνδρας ἐκ τῶν υἱῶν αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐξηλιάσωμεν αὐτοὺς τῷ κυρίῳ ἐν Γαβαων Σαουλ ἐκλεκτοὺς κυρίου καὶ εἶπεν ὁ βασιλεύς ἐγὼ δώσω

7 καὶ ἐφείσατο ὁ βασιλεὺς ἐπὶ Μεμφιβοσθε υἱὸν Ιωναθαν υἱοῦ Σαουλ διὰ τὸν ὅρκον κυρίου τὸν ἀνὰ μέσον αὐτῶν ἀνὰ μέσον Δαυιδ καὶ ἀνὰ μέσον Ιωναθαν υἱοῦ Σαουλ

8 καὶ ἔλαβεν ὁ βασιλεὺς τοὺς δύο υἱοὺς Ρεσφα θυγατρὸς Αια οὓς ἔτεκεν τῷ Σαουλ τὸν Ερμωνι καὶ τὸν Μεμφιβοσθε καὶ τοὺς πέντε υἱοὺς Μιχολ θυγατρὸς Σαουλ οὓς ἔτεκεν τῷ Εσριηλ υἱῷ Βερζελλι τῷ Μοουλαθι

9 καὶ ἔδωκεν αὐτοὺς ἐν χειρὶ τῶν Γαβαωνιτῶν καὶ ἐξηλίασαν αὐτοὺς ἐν τῷ ὄρει ἔναντι κυρίου καὶ ἔπεσαν οἱ ἑπτὰ αὐτοὶ ἐπὶ τὸ αὐτό καὶ αὐτοὶ δὲ ἐθανατώθησαν ἐν ἡμέραις θερισμοῦ ἐν πρώτοις ἐν ἀρχῇ θερισμοῦ κριθῶν

10 καὶ ἔλαβεν Ρεσφα θυγάτηρ Αια τὸν σάκκον καὶ ἔπηξεν αὑτῇ πρὸς τὴν πέτραν ἐν ἀρχῇ θερισμοῦ κριθῶν ἕως ἔσταξεν ἐπ᾽ αὐτοὺς ὕδωρ ἐκ τοῦ οὐρανοῦ καὶ οὐκ ἔδωκεν τὰ πετεινὰ τοῦ οὐρανοῦ καταπαῦσαι ἐπ᾽ αὐτοὺς ἡμέρας καὶ τὰ θηρία τοῦ ἀγροῦ νυκτός

11 καὶ ἀπηγγέλη τῷ Δαυιδ ὅσα ἐποίησεν Ρεσφα θυγάτηρ Αια παλλακὴ Σαουλ καὶ ἐξελύθησαν καὶ κατέλαβεν αὐτοὺς Δαν υἱὸς Ιωα ἐκ τῶν ἀπογόνων τῶν γιγάντων

12 καὶ ἐπορεύθη Δαυιδ καὶ ἔλαβεν τὰ ὀστᾶ Σαουλ καὶ τὰ ὀστᾶ Ιωναθαν τοῦ υἱοῦ αὐτοῦ παρὰ τῶν ἀνδρῶν υἱῶν Ιαβις Γαλααδ οἳ ἔκλεψαν αὐτοὺς ἐκ τῆς πλατείας Βαιθσαν ὅτι ἔστησαν αὐτοὺς ἐκεῖ οἱ ἀλλόφυλοι ἐν ἡμέρᾳ ᾗ ἐπάταξαν οἱ ἀλλόφυλοι τὸν Σαουλ ἐν Γελβουε

13 καὶ ἀνήνεγκεν ἐκεῖθεν τὰ ὀστᾶ Σαουλ καὶ τὰ ὀστᾶ Ιωναθαν τοῦ υἱοῦ αὐτοῦ καὶ συνήγαγεν τὰ ὀστᾶ τῶν ἐξηλιασμένων

14 καὶ ἔθαψαν τὰ ὀστᾶ Σαουλ καὶ τὰ ὀστᾶ Ιωναθαν τοῦ υἱοῦ αὐτοῦ καὶ τῶν ἡλιασθέντων ἐν γῇ Βενιαμιν ἐν τῇ πλευρᾷ ἐν τῷ τάφῳ Κις τοῦ πατρὸς αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐποίησαν πάντα ὅσα ἐνετείλατο ὁ βασιλεύς καὶ ἐπήκουσεν ὁ θεὸς τῇ γῇ μετὰ ταῦτα

15 καὶ ἐγενήθη ἔτι πόλεμος τοῖς ἀλλοφύλοις μετὰ Ισραηλ καὶ κατέβη Δαυιδ καὶ οἱ παῖδες αὐτοῦ μετ᾽ αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐπολέμησαν μετὰ τῶν ἀλλοφύλων καὶ ἐξελύθη Δαυιδ

16 καὶ Ιεσβι ὃς ἦν ἐν τοῖς ἐκγόνοις τοῦ Ραφα καὶ ὁ σταθμὸς τοῦ δόρατος αὐτοῦ τριακοσίων σίκλων ὁλκὴ χαλκοῦ καὶ αὐτὸς περιεζωσμένος κορύνην καὶ διενοεῖτο πατάξαι τὸν Δαυιδ

17 καὶ ἐβοήθησεν αὐτῷ Αβεσσα υἱὸς Σαρουιας καὶ ἐπάταξεν τὸν ἀλλόφυλον καὶ ἐθανάτωσεν αὐτόν τότε ὤμοσαν οἱ ἄνδρες Δαυιδ λέγοντες οὐκ ἐξελεύσῃ ἔτι μεθ᾽ ἡμῶν εἰς πόλεμον καὶ οὐ μὴ σβέσῃς τὸν λύχνον Ισραηλ

18 καὶ ἐγενήθη μετὰ ταῦτα ἔτι πόλεμος ἐν Γεθ μετὰ τῶν ἀλλοφύλων τότε ἐπάταξεν Σεβοχα ὁ Αστατωθι τὸν Σεφ τὸν ἐν τοῖς ἐκγόνοις τοῦ Ραφα

19 καὶ ἐγένετο ὁ πόλεμος ἐν Γοβ μετὰ τῶν ἀλλοφύλων καὶ ἐπάταξεν Ελεαναν υἱὸς Αριωργιμ ὁ Βαιθλεεμίτης τὸν Γολιαθ τὸν Γεθθαῖον καὶ τὸ ξύλον τοῦ δόρατος αὐτοῦ ὡς ἀντίον ὑφαινόντων

20 καὶ ἐγένετο ἔτι πόλεμος ἐν Γεθ καὶ ἦν ἀνὴρ Μαδων καὶ οἱ δάκτυλοι τῶν χειρῶν αὐτοῦ καὶ οἱ δάκτυλοι τῶν ποδῶν αὐτοῦ ἓξ καὶ ἕξ εἴκοσι τέσσαρες ἀριθμῷ καί γε αὐτὸς ἐτέχθη τῷ Ραφα

21 καὶ ὠνείδισεν τὸν Ισραηλ καὶ ἐπάταξεν αὐτὸν Ιωναθαν υἱὸς Σεμεϊ ἀδελφοῦ Δαυιδ

22 οἱ τέσσαρες οὗτοι ἐτέχθησαν ἀπόγονοι τῶν γιγάντων ἐν Γεθ τῷ Ραφα οἶκος καὶ ἔπεσαν ἐν χειρὶ Δαυιδ καὶ ἐν χειρὶ τῶν δούλων αὐτοῦ

1 Facta est quoque fames in diebus David tribus annis jugiter: et consuluit David oraculum Domini. Dixitque Dominus: Propter Saul, et domum ejus sanguinum, quia occidit Gabaonitas.

2 Vocatis ergo Gabaonitis rex, dixit ad eos (porro Gabaonitæ non erant de filiis Israël, sed reliquiæ Amorrhæorum: filii quippe Israël juraverant eis, et voluit Saul percutere eos zelo, quasi pro filiis Israël et Juda),

3 dixit ergo David ad Gabaonitas: Quid faciam vobis? et quod erit vestri piaculum, ut benedicatis hæreditati Domini?

4 Dixeruntque ei Gabaonitæ: Non est nobis super argento et auro quæstio, sed contra Saul, et contra domum ejus: neque volumus ut interficiatur homo de Israël. Ad quos rex ait: Quid ergo vultis ut faciam vobis?

5 Qui dixerunt regi: Virum qui attrivit nos et oppressit inique, ita delere debemus, ut ne unus quidem residuus sit de stirpe ejus in cunctis finibus Israël.

6 Dentur nobis septem viri de filiis ejus, ut crucifigamus eos Domino in Gabaa Saul, quondam electi Domini. Et ait rex: Ego dabo.

7 Pepercitque rex Miphiboseth filio Jonathæ filii Saul, propter jusjurandum Domini quod fuerat inter David et inter Jonathan filium Saul.

8 Tulit itaque rex duos filios Respha filiæ Aja quos peperit Sauli, Armoni, et Miphiboseth: et quinque filios Michol filiæ Saul quos genuerat Hadrieli filio Berzellai, qui fuit de Molathi,

9 et dedit eos in manus Gabaonitarum: qui crucifixerunt eos in monte coram Domino: et ceciderunt hi septem simul occisi in diebus messis primis, incipiente messione hordei.

10 Tollens autem Respha filia Aja cilicium, substravit sibi supra petram ab initio messis, donec stillaret aqua super eos de cælo: et non dimisit aves lacerare eos per diem, neque bestias per noctem.

11 Et nuntiata sunt David quæ fecerat Respha filia Aja, concubina Saul.

12 Et abiit David, et tulit ossa Saul, et ossa Jonathæ filii ejus, a viris Jabes Galaad, qui furati fuerant ea de platea Bethsan in qua suspenderant eos Philisthiim cum interfecissent Saul in Gelboë:

13 et asportavit inde ossa Saul, et ossa Jonathæ filii ejus: et colligentes ossa eorum qui affixi fuerant,

14 sepelierunt ea cum ossibus Saul et Jonathæ filii ejus in terra Benjamin, in latere, in sepulchro Cis patris ejus: feceruntque omnia quæ præceperat rex, et repropitiatus est Deus terræ post hæc.

15 Factum est autem rursum prælium Philisthinorum adversum Israël, et descendit David, et servi ejus cum eo, et pugnabant contra Philisthiim. Deficiente autem David,

16 Jesbibenob, qui fuit de genere Arapha, cujus ferrum hastæ trecentas uncias appendebat, et accinctus erat ense novo, nisus est percutere David.

17 Præsidioque ei fuit Abisai filius Sarviæ, et percussum Philisthæum interfecit. Tunc juraverunt viri David, dicentes: Jam non egredieris nobiscum in bellum, ne extinguas lucernam Israël.

18 Secundum quoque bellum fuit in Gob contra Philisthæos: tunc percussit Sobochai et Husati, Saph de stirpe Arapha de genere gigantum.

19 Tertium quoque fuit bellum in Gob contra Philisthæos, in quo percussit Adeodatus filius Saltus polymitarius Bethlehemites Goliath Gethæum, cujus hastile hastæ erat quasi liciatorium texentium.

20 Quartum bellum fuit in Geth: in quo vir fuit excelsus, qui senos in manibus pedibusque habebat digitos, id est, viginti quatuor: et erat de origine Arapha.

21 Et blasphemavit Israël: percussit autem eum Jonathan filius Samaa fratris David.

22 Hi quatuor nati sunt de Arapha in Geth, et ceciderunt in manu David et servorum ejus.
