2 Samuel 6


1  Again,5750 David1732 gathered together622 853 all3605 the chosen977 men of Israel,3478 thirty7970 thousand.505

2  And David1732 arose,6965 and went1980 with all3605 the people5971 that834 were with854 him from Baale4480 1184 of Judah,3063 to bring up5927 from thence4480 8033 853 the ark727 of God,430 whose834 name8034 is called7121 by the name8034 of the LORD3068 of hosts6635 that dwelleth3427 5921 between the cherubims.3742

3  And they set7392 853 the ark727 of God430 upon413 a new2319 cart,5699 and brought5375 it out of the house4480 1004 of Abinadab41 that834 was in Gibeah:1390 and Uzzah5798 and Ahio,283 the sons1121 of Abinadab,41 drove5090 853 the new2319 cart.5699

4  And they brought5375 it out of the house4480 1004 of Abinadab41 which834 was at Gibeah,1390 accompanying5973 the ark727 of God:430 and Ahio283 went1980 before6440 the ark.727

5  And David1732 and all3605 the house1004 of Israel3478 played7832 before6440 the LORD3068 on all3605 manner of instruments made of fir1265 wood,6086 even on harps,3658 and on psalteries,5035 and on timbrels,8596 and on cornets,4517 and on cymbals.6767

6  And when they came935 to5704 Nachon's5225 threshingfloor,1637 Uzzah5798 put forth7971 his hand to413 the ark727 of God,430 and took hold270 of it; for3588 the oxen1241 shook8058 it.

7  And the anger639 of the LORD3068 was kindled2734 against Uzzah;5798 and God430 smote5221 him there8033 for5921 his error;7944 and there8033 he died4191 by5973 the ark727 of God.430

8  And David1732 was displeased,2734 because5921 834 the LORD3068 had made6555 a breach6556 upon Uzzah:5798 and he called the name7121 of the1931 place4725 Perez-uzzah6560 to5704 this2088 day.3117

9  And David1732 was afraid3372 of 853 the LORD3068 that1931 day,3117 and said,559 How349 shall the ark727 of the LORD3068 come935 to413 me?

10  So David1732 would14 not3808 remove5493 853 the ark727 of the LORD3068 unto413 him into5921 the city5892 of David:1732 but David1732 carried it aside5186 into the house1004 of Obed-edom5654 the Gittite.1663

11  And the ark727 of the LORD3068 continued3427 in the house1004 of Obed-edom5654 the Gittite1663 three7969 months:2320 and the LORD3068 blessed1288 853 Obed-edom,5654 and all3605 his household.1004

12  And it was told5046 king4428 David,1732 saying,559 The LORD3068 hath blessed1288 853 the house1004 of Obed-edom,5654 and all3605 that834 pertaineth unto him, because5668 of the ark727 of God.430 So David1732 went1980 and brought up5927 853 the ark727 of God430 from the house4480 1004 of Obed-edom5654 into the city5892 of David1732 with gladness.8057

13  And it was1961 so, that when3588 they that bore5375 the ark727 of the LORD3068 had gone6805 six8337 paces,6806 he sacrificed2076 oxen7794 and fatlings.4806

14  And David1732 danced3769 before6440 the LORD3068 with all3605 his might;5797 and David1732 was girded2296 with a linen906 ephod.646

15  So David1732 and all3605 the house1004 of Israel3478 brought up5927 853 the ark727 of the LORD3068 with shouting,8643 and with the sound6963 of the trumpet.7782

16  And as1961 the ark727 of the LORD3068 came935 into the city5892 of David,1732 Michal4324 Saul's7586 daughter1323 looked8259 through1157 a window,2474 and saw7200 853 king4428 David1732 leaping6339 and dancing3769 before6440 the LORD;3068 and she despised959 him in her heart.3820

17  And they brought in935 853 the ark727 of the LORD,3068 and set3322 it in his place,4725 in the midst8432 of the tabernacle168 that834 David1732 had pitched5186 for it: and David1732 offered5927 burnt offerings5930 and peace offerings8002 before6440 the LORD.3068

18  And as soon as David1732 had made an end3615 of offering4480 5927 burnt offerings5930 and peace offerings,8002 he blessed1288 853 the people5971 in the name8034 of the LORD3068 of hosts.6635

19  And he dealt2505 among all3605 the people,5971 even among the whole3605 multitude1995 of Israel,3478 as well to5704 the women802 as men,4480 376 to every one376 a259 cake2471 of bread,3899 and a259 good piece829 of flesh, and a259 flagon809 of wine. So all3605 the people5971 departed1980 every one376 to his house.1004

20  Then David1732 returned7725 to bless1288 853 his household.1004 And Michal4324 the daughter1323 of Saul7586 came out3318 to meet7125 David,1732 and said,559 How4100 glorious3513 was the king4428 of Israel3478 today,3117 who834 uncovered himself1540 today3117 in the eyes5869 of the handmaids519 of his servants,5650 as one259 of the vain fellows7386 shamelessly uncovereth himself!1540 1540

21  And David1732 said559 unto413 Michal,4324 It was before6440 the LORD,3068 which834 chose977 me before thy father,4480 1 and before all4480 3605 his house,1004 to appoint6680 me ruler5057 over5921 the people5971 of the LORD,3068 over5921 Israel:3478 therefore will I play7832 before6440 the LORD.3068

22  And I will yet5750 be more vile7043 than thus,4480 2063 and will be1961 base8217 in mine own sight:5869 and of5973 the maidservants519 which834 thou hast spoken559 of, of them shall I be had in honor.3513

23  Therefore Michal4324 the daughter1323 of Saul7586 had1961 no3808 child3206 unto5704 the day3117 of her death.4194


1 καὶ συνήγαγεν ἔτι Δαυιδ πάντα νεανίαν ἐξ Ισραηλ ὡς ἑβδομήκοντα χιλιάδας

2 καὶ ἀνέστη καὶ ἐπορεύθη Δαυιδ καὶ πᾶς ὁ λαὸς ὁ μετ᾽ αὐτοῦ ἀπὸ τῶν ἀρχόντων Ιουδα ἐν ἀναβάσει τοῦ ἀναγαγεῖν ἐκεῖθεν τὴν κιβωτὸν τοῦ θεοῦ ἐφ᾽ ἣν ἐπεκλήθη τὸ ὄνομα κυρίου τῶν δυνάμεων καθημένου ἐπὶ τῶν Χερουβιν ἐπ᾽ αὐτῆς

3 καὶ ἐπεβίβασεν τὴν κιβωτὸν κυρίου ἐφ᾽ ἅμαξαν καινὴν καὶ ἦρεν αὐτὴν ἐξ οἴκου Αμιναδαβ τοῦ ἐν τῷ βουνῷ καὶ Οζα καὶ οἱ ἀδελφοὶ αὐτοῦ υἱοὶ Αμιναδαβ ἦγον τὴν ἅμαξαν

4 σὺν τῇ κιβωτῷ καὶ οἱ ἀδελφοὶ αὐτοῦ ἐπορεύοντο ἔμπροσθεν τῆς κιβωτοῦ

5 καὶ Δαυιδ καὶ οἱ υἱοὶ Ισραηλ παίζοντες ἐνώπιον κυρίου ἐν ὀργάνοις ἡρμοσμένοις ἐν ἰσχύι καὶ ἐν ᾠδαῖς καὶ ἐν κινύραις καὶ ἐν νάβλαις καὶ ἐν τυμπάνοις καὶ ἐν κυμβάλοις καὶ ἐν αὐλοῖς

6 καὶ παραγίνονται ἕως ἅλω Νωδαβ καὶ ἐξέτεινεν Οζα τὴν χεῖρα αὐτοῦ ἐπὶ τὴν κιβωτὸν τοῦ θεοῦ κατασχεῖν αὐτὴν καὶ ἐκράτησεν αὐτήν ὅτι περιέσπασεν αὐτὴν ὁ μόσχος τοῦ κατασχεῖν αὐτήν

7 καὶ ἐθυμώθη κύριος τῷ Οζα καὶ ἔπαισεν αὐτὸν ἐκεῖ ὁ θεός καὶ ἀπέθανεν ἐκεῖ παρὰ τὴν κιβωτὸν τοῦ κυρίου ἐνώπιον τοῦ θεοῦ

8 καὶ ἠθύμησεν Δαυιδ ὑπὲρ οὗ διέκοψεν κύριος διακοπὴν ἐν τῷ Οζα καὶ ἐκλήθη ὁ τόπος ἐκεῖνος διακοπὴ Οζα ἕως τῆς ἡμέρας ταύτης

9 καὶ ἐφοβήθη Δαυιδ τὸν κύριον ἐν τῇ ἡμέρᾳ ἐκείνῃ λέγων πῶς εἰσελεύσεται πρός με ἡ κιβωτὸς κυρίου

10 καὶ οὐκ ἐβούλετο Δαυιδ τοῦ ἐκκλῖναι πρὸς αὑτὸν τὴν κιβωτὸν διαθήκης κυρίου εἰς τὴν πόλιν Δαυιδ καὶ ἀπέκλινεν αὐτὴν Δαυιδ εἰς οἶκον Αβεδδαρα τοῦ Γεθθαίου

11 καὶ ἐκάθισεν ἡ κιβωτὸς τοῦ κυρίου εἰς οἶκον Αβεδδαρα τοῦ Γεθθαίου μῆνας τρεῖς καὶ εὐλόγησεν κύριος ὅλον τὸν οἶκον Αβεδδαρα καὶ πάντα τὰ αὐτοῦ

12 καὶ ἀπηγγέλη τῷ βασιλεῖ Δαυιδ λέγοντες ηὐλόγησεν κύριος τὸν οἶκον Αβεδδαρα καὶ πάντα τὰ αὐτοῦ ἕνεκεν τῆς κιβωτοῦ τοῦ θεοῦ καὶ ἐπορεύθη Δαυιδ καὶ ἀνήγαγεν τὴν κιβωτὸν τοῦ κυρίου ἐκ τοῦ οἴκου Αβεδδαρα εἰς τὴν πόλιν Δαυιδ ἐν εὐφροσύνῃ

13 καὶ ἦσαν μετ᾽ αὐτῶν αἴροντες τὴν κιβωτὸν ἑπτὰ χοροὶ καὶ θῦμα μόσχος καὶ ἄρνα

14 καὶ Δαυιδ ἀνεκρούετο ἐν ὀργάνοις ἡρμοσμένοις ἐνώπιον κυρίου καὶ ὁ Δαυιδ ἐνδεδυκὼς στολὴν ἔξαλλον

15 καὶ Δαυιδ καὶ πᾶς ὁ οἶκος Ισραηλ ἀνήγαγον τὴν κιβωτὸν κυρίου μετὰ κραυγῆς καὶ μετὰ φωνῆς σάλπιγγος

16 καὶ ἐγένετο τῆς κιβωτοῦ παραγινομένης ἕως πόλεως Δαυιδ καὶ Μελχολ ἡ θυγάτηρ Σαουλ διέκυπτεν διὰ τῆς θυρίδος καὶ εἶδεν τὸν βασιλέα Δαυιδ ὀρχούμενον καὶ ἀνακρουόμενον ἐνώπιον κυρίου καὶ ἐξουδένωσεν αὐτὸν ἐν τῇ καρδίᾳ αὐτῆς

17 καὶ φέρουσιν τὴν κιβωτὸν τοῦ κυρίου καὶ ἀνέθηκαν αὐτὴν εἰς τὸν τόπον αὐτῆς εἰς μέσον τῆς σκηνῆς ἧς ἔπηξεν αὐτῇ Δαυιδ καὶ ἀνήνεγκεν Δαυιδ ὁλοκαυτώματα ἐνώπιον κυρίου καὶ εἰρηνικάς

18 καὶ συνετέλεσεν Δαυιδ συναναφέρων τὰς ὁλοκαυτώσεις καὶ τὰς εἰρηνικὰς καὶ εὐλόγησεν τὸν λαὸν ἐν ὀνόματι κυρίου τῶν δυνάμεων

19 καὶ διεμέρισεν παντὶ τῷ λαῷ εἰς πᾶσαν τὴν δύναμιν τοῦ Ισραηλ ἀπὸ Δαν ἕως Βηρσαβεε ἀπὸ ἀνδρὸς ἕως γυναικὸς ἑκάστῳ κολλυρίδα ἄρτου καὶ ἐσχαρίτην καὶ λάγανον ἀπὸ τηγάνου καὶ ἀπῆλθεν πᾶς ὁ λαὸς ἕκαστος εἰς τὸν οἶκον αὐτοῦ

20 καὶ ἐπέστρεψεν Δαυιδ εὐλογῆσαι τὸν οἶκον αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐξῆλθεν Μελχολ ἡ θυγάτηρ Σαουλ εἰς ἀπάντησιν Δαυιδ καὶ εὐλόγησεν αὐτὸν καὶ εἶπεν τί δεδόξασται σήμερον ὁ βασιλεὺς Ισραηλ ὃς ἀπεκαλύφθη σήμερον ἐν ὀφθαλμοῖς παιδισκῶν τῶν δούλων ἑαυτοῦ καθὼς ἀποκαλύπτεται ἀποκαλυφθεὶς εἷς τῶν ὀρχουμένων

21 καὶ εἶπεν Δαυιδ πρὸς Μελχολ ἐνώπιον κυρίου ὀρχήσομαι εὐλογητὸς κύριος ὃς ἐξελέξατό με ὑπὲρ τὸν πατέρα σου καὶ ὑπὲρ πάντα τὸν οἶκον αὐτοῦ τοῦ καταστῆσαί με εἰς ἡγούμενον ἐπὶ τὸν λαὸν αὐτοῦ ἐπὶ τὸν Ισραηλ καὶ παίξομαι καὶ ὀρχήσομαι ἐνώπιον κυρίου

22 καὶ ἀποκαλυφθήσομαι ἔτι οὕτως καὶ ἔσομαι ἀχρεῖος ἐν ὀφθαλμοῖς σου καὶ μετὰ τῶν παιδισκῶν ὧν εἶπάς με δοξασθῆναι

23 καὶ τῇ Μελχολ θυγατρὶ Σαουλ οὐκ ἐγένετο παιδίον ἕως τῆς ἡμέρας τοῦ ἀποθανεῖν αὐτήν

1 Congregavit autem rursum David omnes electos ex Israël, triginta millia.

2 Surrexitque David, et abiit, et universus populus qui erat cum eo de viris Juda, ut adducerent arcam Dei, super quam invocatum est nomen Domini exercituum, sedentis in cherubim super eam.

3 Et imposuerunt arcam Dei super plaustrum novum: tuleruntque eam de domo Abinadab, qui erat in Gabaa: Oza autem et Ahio, filii Abinadab, minabant plaustrum novum.

4 Cumque tulissent eam de domo Abinadab, qui erat in Gabaa, custodiens arcam Dei Ahio præcedebat arcam.

5 David autem et omnis Israël ludebant coram Domino in omnibus lignis fabrefactis, et citharis et lyris et tympanis et sistris et cymbalis.

6 Postquam autem venerunt ad aream Nachon, extendit Oza manum ad arcam Dei, et tenuit eam: quoniam calcitrabant boves, et declinaverunt eam.

7 Iratusque est indignatione Dominus contra Ozam, et percussit eum super temeritate: qui mortuus est ibi juxta arcam Dei.

8 Contristatus est autem David, eo quod percussisset Dominus Ozam, et vocatum est nomen loci illius: Percussio Ozæ, usque in diem hanc.

9 Et extimuit David Dominum in die illa, dicens: Quomodo ingredietur ad me arca Domini?

10 Et noluit divertere ad se arcam Domini in civitatem David: sed divertit eam in domum Obededom Gethæi.

11 Et habitavit arca Domini in domo Obededom Gethæi tribus mensibus: et benedixit Dominus Obededom, et omnem domum ejus.

12 Nuntiatumque est regi David quod benedixisset Dominus Obededom, et omnia ejus, propter arcam Dei. Abiit ergo David, et adduxit arcam Dei de domo Obededom in civitatem David cum gaudio: et erant cum David septem chori, et victima vituli.

13 Cumque transcendissent qui portabant arcam Domini sex passus, immolabat bovem et arietem,

14 et David saltabat totis viribus ante Dominum: porro David erat accinctus ephod lineo.

15 Et David et omnis domus Israël ducebant arcam testamenti Domini in jubilo, et in clangore buccinæ.

16 Cumque intrasset arca Domini in civitatem David, Michol filia Saul, prospiciens per fenestram, vidit regem David subsilientem atque saltantem coram Domino: et despexit eum in corde suo.

17 Et introduxerunt arcam Domini, et imposuerunt eam in loco suo in medio tabernaculi, quod tetenderat ei David: et obtulit David holocausta et pacifica coram Domino.

18 Cumque complesset offerens holocausta et pacifica, benedixit populo in nomine Domini exercituum.

19 Et partitus est universæ multitudini Israël tam viro quam mulieri singulis collyridam panis unam, et assaturam bubulæ carnis unam, et similam frixam oleo: et abiit omnis populus, unusquisque in domum suam.

20 Reversusque est David ut benediceret domui suæ: et egressa Michol filia Saul in occursum David, ait: Quam gloriosus fuit hodie rex Israël discooperiens se ante ancillas servorum suorum, et nudatus est, quasi si nudetur unus de scurris.

21 Dixitque David ad Michol: Ante Dominum, qui elegit me potius quam patrem tuum et quam omnem domum ejus, et præcepit mihi ut essem dux super populum Domini in Israël

22 et Judam, et vilior fiam plus quam factus sum: et ero humilis in oculis meis, et cum ancillis de quibus locuta es, gloriosior apparebo.

23 Igitur Michol filiæ Saul non est natus filius usque in diem mortis suæ.
