1 Samuel 17


1  Now the Philistines6430 gathered together622 853 their armies4264 to battle,4421 and were gathered together622 at Shochoh,7755 which834 belongeth to Judah,3063 and pitched2583 between996 Shochoh7755 and Azekah,5825 in Ephes-dammim.658

2  And Saul7586 and the men376 of Israel3478 were gathered together,622 and pitched2583 by the valley6010 of Elah,425 and set the battle4421 in array6186 against7125 the Philistines.6430

3  And the Philistines6430 stood5975 on413 a mountain2022 on the one side,4480 2088 and Israel3478 stood5975 on413 a mountain2022 on the other side:4480 2088 and there was a valley1516 between996 them.

4  And there went out3318 a champion376 1143 out of the camp4480 4264 of the Philistines,6430 named8034 Goliath,1555 of Gath,4480 1661 whose height1363 was six8337 cubits520 and a span.2239

5  And he had a helmet3553 of brass5178 upon5921 his head,7218 and he1931 was armed3847 with a coat8302 of mail;7193 and the weight4948 of the coat8302 was five2568 thousand505 shekels8255 of brass.5178

6  And he had greaves4697 of brass5178 upon5921 his legs,7272 and a target3591 of brass5178 between996 his shoulders.3802

7  And the staff2671 of his spear2595 was like a weaver's707 beam;4500 and his spear's2595 head3852 weighed six8337 hundred3967 shekels8255 of iron:1270 and one bearing5375 a shield6793 went1980 before6440 him.

8  And he stood5975 and cried7121 unto413 the armies4634 of Israel,3478 and said559 unto them, Why4100 are ye come out3318 to set your battle4421 in array?6186 am not3808 I595 a Philistine,6430 and ye859 servants5650 to Saul?7586 choose1262 you a man376 for you, and let him come down3381 to413 me.

9  If518 he be able3201 to fight3898 with854 me, and to kill5221 me, then will we be1961 your servants:5650 but if518 I589 prevail3201 against him, and kill5221 him, then shall ye be1961 our servants,5650 and serve5647 us.

10  And the Philistine6430 said,559 I589 defy2778 853 the armies4634 of Israel3478 this2088 day;3117 give5414 me a man,376 that we may fight3898 together.3162

11  When Saul7586 and all3605 Israel3478 heard8085 853 those428 words1697 of the Philistine,6430 they were dismayed,2865 and greatly3966 afraid.3372

12  Now David1732 was the son1121 of that2088 Ephrathite376 673 of Bethlehem-judah,4480 1035 whose name8034 was Jesse;3448 and he had eight8083 sons:1121 and the man376 went935 among men376 for an old2204 man in the days3117 of Saul.7586

13  And the three7969 eldest1419 sons1121 of Jesse3448 went1980 and followed1980 310 Saul7586 to the battle:4421 and the names8034 of his three7969 sons1121 that834 went1980 to the battle4421 were Eliab446 the firstborn,1060 and next4932 unto him Abinadab,41 and the third7992 Shammah.8048

14  And David1732 was the youngest:6996 and the three7969 eldest1419 followed1980 310 Saul.7586

15  But David1732 went1980 and returned7725 from4480 5921 Saul7586 to feed7462 853 his father's1 sheep6629 at Bethlehem.1035

16  And the Philistine6430 drew near5066 morning7925 and evening,6150 and presented himself3320 forty705 days.3117

17  And Jesse3448 said559 unto David1732 his son,1121 Take3947 now4994 for thy brethren251 an ephah374 of this2088 parched7039 corn, and these2088 ten6235 loaves,3899 and run7323 to the camp4264 to thy brethren;251

18  And carry935 these428 ten6235 cheeses2757 2461 unto the captain8269 of their thousand,505 and look how6485 thy brethren251 fare,7965 and take3947 their pledge.6161

19  Now Saul,7586 and they,1992 and all3605 the men376 of Israel,3478 were in the valley6010 of Elah,425 fighting3898 with5973 the Philistines.6430

20  And David1732 rose up early7925 in the morning,1242 and left5203 853 the sheep6629 with5921 a keeper,8104 and took,5375 and went,1980 as834 Jesse3448 had commanded6680 him; and he came935 to the trench,4570 as the host2428 was going forth3318 to413 the fight,4634 and shouted7321 for the battle.4421

21  For Israel3478 and the Philistines6430 had put the battle in array,6186 army4634 against7125 army.4634

22  And David1732 left5203 853 his carriage3627 in5921 the hand3027 of the keeper8104 of the carriage,3627 and ran7323 into the army,4634 and came935 and saluted7592 7965 his brethren.251

23  And as he1931 talked1696 with5973 them, behold,2009 there came up5927 the champion,376 1143 the Philistine6430 of Gath,4480 1661 Goliath1555 by name,8034 out of the armies4480 4630 of the Philistines,6430 and spoke1696 according to the same428 words:1697 and David1732 heard8085 them.

24  And all3605 the men376 of Israel,3478 when they saw7200 853 the man,376 fled5127 from4480 6440 him, and were sore3966 afraid.3372

25  And the men376 of Israel3478 said,559 Have ye seen7200 this2088 man376 that is come up?5927 surely3588 to defy2778 853 Israel3478 is he come up:5927 and it shall be,1961 that the man376 who834 killeth5221 him, the king4428 will enrich6238 him with great1419 riches,6239 and will give5414 him his daughter,1323 and make6213 his father's1 house1004 free2670 in Israel.3478

26  And David1732 spoke559 to413 the men376 that stood5975 by5973 him, saying,559 What4100 shall be done6213 to the man376 that834 killeth5221 853 this1975 Philistine,6430 and taketh away5493 the reproach2781 from4480 5921 Israel?3478 for3588 who4310 is this2088 uncircumcised6189 Philistine,6430 that3588 he should defy2778 the armies4634 of the living2416 God?430

27  And the people5971 answered559 him after this2088 manner,1697 saying,559 So3541 shall it be done6213 to the man376 that834 killeth5221 him.

28  And Eliab446 his eldest1419 brother251 heard8085 when he spoke1696 unto413 the men;376 and Eliab's446 anger639 was kindled2734 against David,1732 and he said,559 Why4100 camest thou down3381 hither? and with5921 whom4310 hast thou left5203 those2007 few4592 sheep6629 in the wilderness?4057 I589 know3045 853 thy pride,2087 and the naughtiness7455 of thine heart;3824 for3588 thou art come down3381 that4616 thou mightest see7200 the battle.4421

29  And David1732 said,559 What4100 have I now6258 done?6213 Is there not3808 a cause?1697

30  And he turned5437 from4480 681 him toward another,413 4136 312 and spoke559 after the same2088 manner:1697 and the people5971 answered1697 him again7725 after the former7223 manner.1697

31  And when the words1697 were heard8085 which834 David1732 spoke,1696 they rehearsed5046 them before6440 Saul:7586 and he sent3947 for him.

32  And David1732 said559 to413 Saul,7586 Let no408 man's120 heart3820 fail5307 because5921 of him; thy servant5650 will go1980 and fight3898 with5973 this2088 Philistine.6430

33  And Saul7586 said559 to413 David,1732 Thou art not3808 able3201 to go1980 against413 this2088 Philistine6430 to fight3898 with5973 him: for3588 thou859 art but a youth,5288 and he1931 a man376 of war4421 from his youth.4480 5271

34  And David1732 said559 unto413 Saul,7586 Thy servant5650 kept1961 7462 his father's1 sheep,6629 and there came935 a lion,738 and a bear,1677 and took5375 a lamb7716 out of the flock:4480 5739

35  And I went out3318 after310 him, and smote5221 him, and delivered5337 it out of his mouth:4480 6310 and when he arose6965 against5921 me, I caught2388 him by his beard,2206 and smote5221 him, and slew4191 him.

36  Thy servant5650 slew5221 both1571 853 the lion738 and1571 the bear:1677 and this2088 uncircumcised6189 Philistine6430 shall be1961 as one259 of4480 them, seeing3588 he hath defied2778 the armies4634 of the living2416 God.430

37  David1732 said559 moreover, The LORD3068 that834 delivered5337 me out of the paw4480 3027 of the lion,738 and out of the paw4480 3027 of the bear,1677 he1931 will deliver5337 me out of the hand4480 3027 of this2088 Philistine.6430 And Saul7586 said559 unto413 David,1732 Go,1980 and the LORD3068 be1961 with5973 thee.

38  And Saul7586 armed3847 853 David1732 with his armor,4055 and he put5414 a helmet6959 of brass5178 upon5921 his head;7218 also he armed3847 him with a coat of mail.8302

39  And David1732 girded2296 853 his sword2719 upon4480 5921 his armor,4055 and he attempted2974 to go;1980 for3588 he had not3808 proved5254 it. And David1732 said559 unto413 Saul,7586 I cannot3201 3808 go1980 with these;428 for3588 I have not3808 proved5254 them. And David1732 put5493 them off4480 5921 him.

40  And he took3947 his staff4731 in his hand,3027 and chose977 him five2568 smooth2512 stones68 out of4480 the brook,5158 and put7760 them in a shepherd's7462 bag3627 which834 he had, even in a scrip;3219 and his sling7050 was in his hand:3027 and he drew near5066 to413 the Philistine.6430

41  And the Philistine6430 came1980 on1980 and drew near7131 unto413 David;1732 and the man376 that bore5375 the shield6793 went before6440 him.

42  And when the Philistine6430 looked about,5027 and saw7200 853 David,1732 he disdained959 him: for3588 he was1961 but a youth,5288 and ruddy,132 and of5973 a fair3303 countenance.4758

43  And the Philistine6430 said559 unto413 David,1732 Am I595 a dog,3611 that3588 thou859 comest935 to413 me with staves?4731 And the Philistine6430 cursed7043 853 David1732 by his gods.430

44  And the Philistine6430 said559 to413 David,1732 Come1980 to413 me, and I will give5414 853 thy flesh1320 unto the fowls5775 of the air,8064 and to the beasts929 of the field.7704

45  Then said559 David1732 to413 the Philistine,6430 Thou859 comest935 to413 me with a sword,2719 and with a spear,2595 and with a shield:3591 but I595 come935 to413 thee in the name8034 of the LORD3068 of hosts,6635 the God430 of the armies4634 of Israel,3478 whom834 thou hast defied.2778

46  This2088 day3117 will the LORD3068 deliver5462 thee into mine hand;3027 and I will smite5221 thee, and take5493 853 thine head7218 from4480 5921 thee; and I will give5414 the carcasses6297 of the host4264 of the Philistines6430 this2088 day3117 unto the fowls5775 of the air,8064 and to the wild beasts2416 of the earth;776 that all3605 the earth776 may know3045 that3588 there is3426 a God430 in Israel.3478

47  And all3605 this2088 assembly6951 shall know3045 that3588 the LORD3068 saveth3467 not3808 with sword2719 and spear:2595 for3588 the battle4421 is the LORD's,3068 and he will give5414 you into our hands.3027

48  And it came to pass,1961 when3588 the Philistine6430 arose,6965 and came1980 and drew nigh7126 to meet7125 David,1732 that David1732 hasted,4116 and ran7323 toward the army4634 to meet7125 the Philistine.6430

49  And David1732 put7971 853 his hand3027 in413 his bag,3627 and took3947 thence4480 8033 a stone,68 and slung7049 it, and smote5221 853 the Philistine6430 in413 his forehead,4696 that the stone68 sunk2883 into his forehead;4696 and he fell5307 upon5921 his face6440 to the earth.776

50  So David1732 prevailed2388 over4480 the Philistine6430 with a sling7050 and with a stone,68 and smote5221 853 the Philistine,6430 and slew4191 him; but there was no369 sword2719 in the hand3027 of David.1732

51  Therefore David1732 ran,7323 and stood5975 upon413 the Philistine,6430 and took3947 853 his sword,2719 and drew8025 it out of the sheath4480 8593 thereof, and slew4191 him, and cut off3772 853 his head7218 therewith. And when the Philistines6430 saw7200 their champion1368 was dead,4191 they fled.5127

52  And the men376 of Israel3478 and of Judah3063 arose,6965 and shouted,7321 and pursued7291 853 the Philistines,6430 until5704 thou come935 to the valley,1516 and to5704 the gates8179 of Ekron.6138 And the wounded2491 of the Philistines6430 fell down5307 by the way1870 to Shaaraim,8189 even unto5704 Gath,1661 and unto5704 Ekron.6138

53  And the children1121 of Israel3478 returned7725 from chasing4480 1814 after310 the Philistines,6430 and they spoiled8155 853 their tents.4264

54  And David1732 took3947 853 the head7218 of the Philistine,6430 and brought935 it to Jerusalem;3389 but he put7760 his armor3627 in his tent.168

55  And when Saul7586 saw7200 853 David1732 go forth3318 against7125 the Philistine,6430 he said559 unto413 Abner,74 the captain8269 of the host,6635 Abner,74 whose4310 son1121 is this2088 youth?5288 And Abner74 said,559 As thy soul5315 liveth,2416 O king,4428 I cannot518 tell.3045

56  And the king4428 said,559 Inquire7592 thou859 whose4310 son1121 the stripling5958 is.

57  And as David1732 returned7725 from the slaughter4480 5221 of 853 the Philistine,6430 Abner74 took3947 him, and brought935 him before6440 Saul7586 with the head7218 of the Philistine6430 in his hand.3027

58  And Saul7586 said559 to413 him, Whose4310 son1121 art thou,859 thou young man?5288 And David1732 answered,559 I am the son1121 of thy servant5650 Jesse3448 the Bethlehemite.1022


1 καὶ συνάγουσιν ἀλλόφυλοι τὰς παρεμβολὰς αὐτῶν εἰς πόλεμον καὶ συνάγονται εἰς Σοκχωθ τῆς Ιουδαίας καὶ παρεμβάλλουσιν ἀνὰ μέσον Σοκχωθ καὶ ἀνὰ μέσον Αζηκα ἐν Εφερμεμ

2 καὶ Σαουλ καὶ οἱ ἄνδρες Ισραηλ συνάγονται καὶ παρεμβάλλουσιν ἐν τῇ κοιλάδι αὐτοὶ παρατάσσονται εἰς πόλεμον ἐξ ἐναντίας ἀλλοφύλων

3 καὶ ἀλλόφυλοι ἵστανται ἐπὶ τοῦ ὄρους ἐνταῦθα καὶ Ισραηλ ἵσταται ἐπὶ τοῦ ὄρους ἐνταῦθα καὶ ὁ αὐλὼν ἀνὰ μέσον αὐτῶν

4 καὶ ἐξῆλθεν ἀνὴρ δυνατὸς ἐκ τῆς παρατάξεως τῶν ἀλλοφύλων Γολιαθ ὄνομα αὐτῷ ἐκ Γεθ ὕψος αὐτοῦ τεσσάρων πήχεων καὶ σπιθαμῆς

5 καὶ περικεφαλαία ἐπὶ τῆς κεφαλῆς αὐτοῦ καὶ θώρακα ἁλυσιδωτὸν αὐτὸς ἐνδεδυκώς καὶ ὁ σταθμὸς τοῦ θώρακος αὐτοῦ πέντε χιλιάδες σίκλων χαλκοῦ καὶ σιδήρου

6 καὶ κνημῖδες χαλκαῖ ἐπάνω τῶν σκελῶν αὐτοῦ καὶ ἀσπὶς χαλκῆ ἀνὰ μέσον τῶν ὤμων αὐτοῦ

7 καὶ ὁ κοντὸς τοῦ δόρατος αὐτοῦ ὡσεὶ μέσακλον ὑφαινόντων καὶ ἡ λόγχη αὐτοῦ ἑξακοσίων σίκλων σιδήρου καὶ ὁ αἴρων τὰ ὅπλα αὐτοῦ προεπορεύετο αὐτοῦ

8 καὶ ἔστη καὶ ἀνεβόησεν εἰς τὴν παράταξιν Ισραηλ καὶ εἶπεν αὐτοῖς τί ἐκπορεύεσθε παρατάξασθαι πολέμῳ ἐξ ἐναντίας ἡμῶν οὐκ ἐγώ εἰμι ἀλλόφυλος καὶ ὑμεῖς Εβραῖοι τοῦ Σαουλ ἐκλέξασθε ἑαυτοῖς ἄνδρα καὶ καταβήτω πρός με

9 καὶ ἐὰν δυνηθῇ πρὸς ἐμὲ πολεμῆσαι καὶ ἐὰν πατάξῃ με καὶ ἐσόμεθα ὑμῖν εἰς δούλους ἐὰν δὲ ἐγὼ δυνηθῶ καὶ πατάξω αὐτόν ἔσεσθε ἡμῖν εἰς δούλους καὶ δουλεύσετε ἡμῖν

10 καὶ εἶπεν ὁ ἀλλόφυλος ἰδοὺ ἐγὼ ὠνείδισα τὴν παράταξιν Ισραηλ σήμερον ἐν τῇ ἡμέρᾳ ταύτῃ δότε μοι ἄνδρα καὶ μονομαχήσομεν ἀμφότεροι

11 καὶ ἤκουσεν Σαουλ καὶ πᾶς Ισραηλ τὰ ῥήματα τοῦ ἀλλοφύλου ταῦτα καὶ ἐξέστησαν καὶ ἐφοβήθησαν σφόδρα

32 καὶ εἶπεν Δαυιδ πρὸς Σαουλ μὴ δὴ συμπεσέτω ἡ καρδία τοῦ κυρίου μου ἐπ᾽ αὐτόν ὁ δοῦλός σου πορεύσεται καὶ πολεμήσει μετὰ τοῦ ἀλλοφύλου τούτου

33 καὶ εἶπεν Σαουλ πρὸς Δαυιδ οὐ μὴ δυνήσῃ πορευθῆναι πρὸς τὸν ἀλλόφυλον τοῦ πολεμεῖν μετ᾽ αὐτοῦ ὅτι παιδάριον εἶ σύ καὶ αὐτὸς ἀνὴρ πολεμιστὴς ἐκ νεότητος αὐτοῦ

34 καὶ εἶπεν Δαυιδ πρὸς Σαουλ ποιμαίνων ἦν ὁ δοῦλός σου τῷ πατρὶ αὐτοῦ ἐν τῷ ποιμνίῳ καὶ ὅταν ἤρχετο ὁ λέων καὶ ἡ ἄρκος καὶ ἐλάμβανεν πρόβατον ἐκ τῆς ἀγέλης

35 καὶ ἐξεπορευόμην ὀπίσω αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐπάταξα αὐτὸν καὶ ἐξέσπασα ἐκ τοῦ στόματος αὐτοῦ καὶ εἰ ἐπανίστατο ἐπ᾽ ἐμέ καὶ ἐκράτησα τοῦ φάρυγγος αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐπάταξα καὶ ἐθανάτωσα αὐτόν

36 καὶ τὴν ἄρκον ἔτυπτεν ὁ δοῦλός σου καὶ τὸν λέοντα καὶ ἔσται ὁ ἀλλόφυλος ὁ ἀπερίτμητος ὡς ἓν τούτων οὐχὶ πορεύσομαι καὶ πατάξω αὐτὸν καὶ ἀφελῶ σήμερον ὄνειδος ἐξ Ισραηλ διότι τίς ὁ ἀπερίτμητος οὗτος ὃς ὠνείδισεν παράταξιν θεοῦ ζῶντος

37 κύριος ὃς ἐξείλατό με ἐκ χειρὸς τοῦ λέοντος καὶ ἐκ χειρὸς τῆς ἄρκου αὐτὸς ἐξελεῖταί με ἐκ χειρὸς τοῦ ἀλλοφύλου τοῦ ἀπεριτμήτου τούτου καὶ εἶπεν Σαουλ πρὸς Δαυιδ πορεύου καὶ ἔσται κύριος μετὰ σοῦ

38 καὶ ἐνέδυσεν Σαουλ τὸν Δαυιδ μανδύαν καὶ περικεφαλαίαν χαλκῆν περὶ τὴν κεφαλὴν αὐτοῦ

39 καὶ ἔζωσεν τὸν Δαυιδ τὴν ῥομφαίαν αὐτοῦ ἐπάνω τοῦ μανδύου αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐκοπίασεν περιπατήσας ἅπαξ καὶ δίς καὶ εἶπεν Δαυιδ πρὸς Σαουλ οὐ μὴ δύνωμαι πορευθῆναι ἐν τούτοις ὅτι οὐ πεπείραμαι καὶ ἀφαιροῦσιν αὐτὰ ἀπ᾽ αὐτοῦ

40 καὶ ἔλαβεν τὴν βακτηρίαν αὐτοῦ ἐν τῇ χειρὶ αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐξελέξατο ἑαυτῷ πέντε λίθους λείους ἐκ τοῦ χειμάρρου καὶ ἔθετο αὐτοὺς ἐν τῷ καδίῳ τῷ ποιμενικῷ τῷ ὄντι αὐτῷ εἰς συλλογὴν καὶ σφενδόνην αὐτοῦ ἐν τῇ χειρὶ αὐτοῦ καὶ προσῆλθεν πρὸς τὸν ἄνδρα τὸν ἀλλόφυλον

42 καὶ εἶδεν Γολιαδ τὸν Δαυιδ καὶ ἠτίμασεν αὐτόν ὅτι αὐτὸς ἦν παιδάριον καὶ αὐτὸς πυρράκης μετὰ κάλλους ὀφθαλμῶν

43 καὶ εἶπεν ὁ ἀλλόφυλος πρὸς Δαυιδ ὡσεὶ κύων ἐγώ εἰμι ὅτι σὺ ἔρχῃ ἐπ᾽ ἐμὲ ἐν ῥάβδῳ καὶ λίθοις καὶ εἶπεν Δαυιδ οὐχί ἀλλ᾽ ἢ χείρω κυνός καὶ κατηράσατο ὁ ἀλλόφυλος τὸν Δαυιδ ἐν τοῖς θεοῖς αὐτοῦ

44 καὶ εἶπεν ὁ ἀλλόφυλος πρὸς Δαυιδ δεῦρο πρός με καὶ δώσω τὰς σάρκας σου τοῖς πετεινοῖς τοῦ οὐρανοῦ καὶ τοῖς κτήνεσιν τῆς γῆς

45 καὶ εἰπεν Δαυιδ πρὸς τὸν ἀλλόφυλον σὺ ἔρχῃ πρός με ἐν ῥομφαίᾳ καὶ ἐν δόρατι καὶ ἐν ἀσπίδι κἀγὼ πορεύομαι πρὸς σὲ ἐν ὀνόματι κυρίου σαβαωθ θεοῦ παρατάξεως Ισραηλ ἣν ὠνείδισας σήμερον

46 καὶ ἀποκλείσει σε κύριος σήμερον εἰς τὴν χεῖρά μου καὶ ἀποκτενῶ σε καὶ ἀφελῶ τὴν κεφαλήν σου ἀπὸ σοῦ καὶ δώσω τὰ κῶλά σου καὶ τὰ κῶλα παρεμβολῆς ἀλλοφύλων ἐν ταύτῃ τῇ ἡμέρᾳ τοῖς πετεινοῖς τοῦ οὐρανοῦ καὶ τοῖς θηρίοις τῆς γῆς καὶ γνώσεται πᾶσα ἡ γῆ ὅτι ἔστιν θεὸς ἐν Ισραηλ

47 καὶ γνώσεται πᾶσα ἡ ἐκκλησία αὕτη ὅτι οὐκ ἐν ῥομφαίᾳ καὶ δόρατι σῴζει κύριος ὅτι τοῦ κυρίου ὁ πόλεμος καὶ παραδώσει κύριος ὑμᾶς εἰς χεῖρας ἡμῶν

48 καὶ ἀνέστη ὁ ἀλλόφυλος καὶ ἐπορεύθη εἰς συνάντησιν Δαυιδ

49 καὶ ἐξέτεινεν Δαυιδ τὴν χεῖρα αὐτοῦ εἰς τὸ κάδιον καὶ ἔλαβεν ἐκεῖθεν λίθον ἕνα καὶ ἐσφενδόνησεν καὶ ἐπάταξεν τὸν ἀλλόφυλον ἐπὶ τὸ μέτωπον αὐτοῦ καὶ διέδυ ὁ λίθος διὰ τῆς περικεφαλαίας εἰς τὸ μέτωπον αὐτοῦ καὶ ἔπεσεν ἐπὶ πρόσωπον αὐτοῦ ἐπὶ τὴν γῆν

51 καὶ ἔδραμεν Δαυιδ καὶ ἐπέστη ἐπ᾽ αὐτὸν καὶ ἔλαβεν τὴν ῥομφαίαν αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐθανάτωσεν αὐτὸν καὶ ἀφεῖλεν τὴν κεφαλὴν αὐτοῦ καὶ εἶδον οἱ ἀλλόφυλοι ὅτι τέθνηκεν ὁ δυνατὸς αὐτῶν καὶ ἔφυγον

52 καὶ ἀνίστανται ἄνδρες Ισραηλ καὶ Ιουδα καὶ ἠλάλαξαν καὶ κατεδίωξαν ὀπίσω αὐτῶν ἕως εἰσόδου Γεθ καὶ ἕως τῆς πύλης Ἀσκαλῶνος καὶ ἔπεσαν τραυματίαι τῶν ἀλλοφύλων ἐν τῇ ὁδῷ τῶν πυλῶν καὶ ἕως Γεθ καὶ ἕως Ακκαρων

53 καὶ ἀνέστρεψαν ἄνδρες Ισραηλ ἐκκλίνοντες ὀπίσω τῶν ἀλλοφύλων καὶ κατεπάτουν τὰς παρεμβολὰς αὐτῶν

54 καὶ ἔλαβεν Δαυιδ τὴν κεφαλὴν τοῦ ἀλλοφύλου καὶ ἤνεγκεν αὐτὴν εἰς Ιερουσαλημ καὶ τὰ σκεύη αὐτοῦ ἔθηκεν ἐν τῷ σκηνώματι αὐτοῦ

1 Congregantes autem Philisthiim agmina sua in prælium, convenerunt in Socho Judæ: et castrametati sunt inter Socho et Azeca in finibus Dommim.

2 Porro Saul et filii Israël congregati venerunt in Vallem terebinthi, et direxerunt aciem ad pugnandum contra Philisthiim.

3 Et Philisthiim stabant super montem ex parte hac, et Israël stabat supra montem ex altera parte: vallisque erat inter eos.

4 Et egressus est vir spurius de castris Philisthinorum nomine Goliath, de Geth, altitudinis sex cubitorum et palmi:

5 et cassis ærea super caput ejus, et lorica squamata induebatur. Porro pondus loricæ ejus, quinque millia siclorum æris erat:

6 et ocreas æreas habebat in cruribus, et clypeus æreus tegebat humeros ejus.

7 Hastile autem hastæ ejus erat quasi liciatorium texentium: ipsum autem ferrum hastæ ejus sexcentos siclos habebat ferri: et armiger ejus antecedebat eum.

8 Stansque clamabat adversum phalangas Israël, et dicebat eis: Quare venistis parati ad prælium? numquid ego non sum Philisthæus, et vos servi Saul? eligite ex vobis virum, et descendat ad singulare certamen.

9 Si quiverit pugnare mecum, et percusserit me, erimus vobis servi: si autem ego prævaluero, et percussero eum, vos servi eritis, et servietis nobis.

10 Et aiebat Philisthæus: Ego exprobravi agminibus Israël hodie: date mihi virum, et ineat mecum singulare certamen.

11 Audiens autem Saul et omnes Israëlitæ sermones Philisthæi hujuscemodi, stupebant, et metuebant nimis.

12 David autem erat filius viri Ephrathæi, de quo supra dictum est, de Bethlehem Juda, cui nomen erat Isai, qui habebat octo filios, et erat vir in diebus Saul senex, et grandævus inter viros.

13 Abierunt autem tres filii ejus majores post Saul in prælium: et nomina trium filiorum ejus qui perrexerunt ad bellum, Eliab primogenitus, et secundus Abinadab, tertiusque Samma.

14 David autem erat minimus. Tribus ergo majoribus secutis Saulem,

15 abiit David, et reversus est a Saul ut pasceret gregem patris sui in Bethlehem.

16 Procedebat vero Philisthæus mane et vespere, et stabat quadraginta diebus.

17 Dixit autem Isai ad David filium suum: Accipe fratribus tuis ephi polentæ, et decem panes istos, et curre in castra ad fratres tuos,

18 et decem formellas casei has deferes ad tribunum: et fratres tuos visitabis, si recte agant: et cum quibus ordinati sunt, disce.

19 Saul autem, et illi, et omnes filii Israël, in Valle terebinthi pugnabant adversum Philisthiim.

20 Surrexit itaque David mane, et commendavit gregem custodi: et onustus abiit, sicut præceperat ei Isai. Et venit ad locum Magala, et ad exercitum, qui egressus ad pugnam vociferatus erat in certamine.

21 Direxerat enim aciem Israël, sed et Philisthiim ex adverso fuerant præparati.

22 Derelinquens ergo David vasa quæ attulerat sub manu custodis ad sarcinas, cucurrit ad locum certaminis, et interrogabat si omnia recte agerentur erga fratres suos.

23 Cumque adhuc ille loqueretur eis, apparuit vir ille spurius ascendens, Goliath nomine, Philisthæus de Geth, de castris Philisthinorum: et loquente eo hæc eadem verba audivit David.

24 Omnes autem Israëlitæ, cum vidissent virum, fugerunt a facie ejus, timentes eum valde.

25 Et dixit unus quispiam de Israël: Num vidistis virum hunc, qui ascendit? ad exprobrandum enim Israëli ascendit. Virum ergo qui percusserit eum, ditabit rex divitiis magnis, et filiam suam dabit ei, et domum patris ejus faciet absque tributo in Israël.

26 Et ait David ad viros qui stabant secum, dicens: Quid dabitur viro qui percusserit Philisthæum hunc, et tulerit opprobrium de Israël? quis enim est hic Philisthæus incircumcisus, qui exprobravit acies Dei viventis?

27 Referebat autem ei populus eumdem sermonem, dicens: Hæc dabuntur viro qui percusserit eum.

28 Quod cum audisset Eliab frater ejus major, loquente eo cum aliis, iratus est contra David, et ait: Quare venisti, et quare dereliquisti pauculas oves illas in deserto? Ego novi superbiam tuam, et nequitiam cordis tui: quia ut videres prælium, descendisti.

29 Et dixit David: Quid feci? numquid non verbum est?

30 Et declinavit paululum ab eo ad alium: dixitque eumdem sermonem. Et respondit ei populus verbum sicut prius.

31 Audita sunt autem verba quæ locutus est David, et annuntiata in conspectu Saul.

32 Ad quem cum fuisset adductus, locutus est ei: Non concidat cor cujusquam in eo: ego servus tuus vadam, et pugnabo adversus Philisthæum.

33 Et ait Saul ad David: Non vales resistere Philisthæo isti, nec pugnare adversus eum, quia puer es: hic autem vir bellator est ab adolescentia sua.

34 Dixitque David ad Saul: Pascebat servus tuus patris sui gregem, et veniebat leo vel ursus, et tollebat arietem de medio gregis:

35 et persequebar eos, et percutiebam, eruebamque de ore eorum: et illi consurgebant adversum me, et apprehendebam mentum eorum, et suffocabam, interficiebamque eos.

36 Nam et leonem et ursum interfeci ego servus tuus: erit igitur et Philisthæus hic incircumcisus quasi unus ex eis. Nunc vadam, et auferam opprobrium populi: quoniam quis est iste Philisthæus incircumcisus, qui ausus est maledicere exercitui Dei viventis?

37 Et ait David: Dominus qui eripuit me de manu leonis, et de manu ursi, ipse me liberabit de manu Philisthæi hujus. Dixit autem Saul ad David: Vade, et Dominus tecum sit.

38 Et induit Saul David vestimentis suis, et imposuit galeam æream super caput ejus, et vestivit eum lorica.

39 Accinctus ergo David gladio ejus super vestem suam, cœpit tentare si armatus posset incedere: non enim habebat consuetudinem. Dixitque David ad Saul: Non possum sic incedere, quia non usum habeo.
Et deposuit ea,

40 et tulit baculum suum, quem semper habebat in manibus: et elegit sibi quinque limpidissimos lapides de torrente, et misit eos in peram pastoralem quam habebat secum, et fundam manu tulit: et processit adversum Philisthæum.

41 Ibat autem Philisthæus incedens, et appropinquans adversum David, et armiger ejus ante eum.

42 Cumque inspexisset Philisthæus, et vidisset David, despexit eum. Erat enim adolescens, rufus, et pulcher aspectu.

43 Et dixit Philisthæus ad David: Numquid ego canis sum, quod tu venis ad me cum baculo? Et maledixit Philisthæus David in diis suis:

44 dixitque ad David: Veni ad me, et dabo carnes tuas volatilibus cæli et bestiis terræ.

45 Dixit autem David ad Philisthæum: Tu venis ad me cum gladio, et hasta, et clypeo: ego autem venio ad te in nomine Domini exercituum, Dei agminum Israël quibus exprobrasti

46 hodie, et dabit te Dominus in manu mea, et percutiam te, et auferam caput tuum a te: et dabo cadavera castrorum Philisthiim hodie volatilibus cæli, et bestiis terræ, ut sciat omnis terra quia est Deus in Israël,

47 et noverit universa ecclesia hæc, quia non in gladio nec in hasta salvat Dominus: ipsius enim est bellum, et tradet vos in manus nostras.

48 Cum ergo surrexisset Philisthæus, et veniret, et appropinquaret contra David, festinavit David et cucurrit ad pugnam ex adverso Philisthæi.

49 Et misit manum suam in peram, tulitque unum lapidem, et funda jecit, et circumducens percussit Philisthæum in fronte: et infixus est lapis in fronte ejus, et cecidit in faciem suam super terram.

50 Prævaluitque David adversum Philisthæum in funda et lapide, percussumque Philisthæum interfecit. Cumque gladium non haberet in manu David,

51 cucurrit, et stetit super Philisthæum, et tulit gladium ejus, et eduxit eum de vagina sua: et interfecit eum, præciditque caput ejus. Videntes autem Philisthiim quod mortuus esset fortissimus eorum, fugerunt.

52 Et consurgentes viri Israël et Juda vociferati sunt, et persecuti sunt Philisthæos usque dum venirent in vallem, et usque ad portas Accaron: cecideruntque vulnerati de Philisthiim in via Saraim, et usque ad Geth, et usque ad Accaron.

53 Et revertentes filii Israël postquam persecuti fuerant Philisthæos, invaserunt castra eorum.

54 Assumens autem David caput Philisthæi, attulit illud in Jerusalem: arma vero ejus posuit in tabernaculo suo.

55 Eo autem tempore quo viderat Saul David egredientem contra Philisthæum, ait ad Abner principem militiæ: De qua stirpe descendit hic adolescens, Abner? Dixitque Abner: Vivit anima tua, rex, si novi.

56 Et ait rex: Interroga tu, cujus filius sit iste puer.

57 Cumque regressus esset David, percusso Philisthæo, tulit eum Abner, et introduxit coram Saule, caput Philisthæi habentem in manu.

58 Et ait ad eum Saul: De qua progenie es, o adolescens? Dixitque David: Filius servi tui Isai Bethlehemitæ ego sum.
