2 Samuel 7


1  And it came to pass,1961 when3588 the king4428 sat3427 in his house,1004 and the LORD3068 had given him rest5117 round about4480 5439 from all4480 3605 his enemies;341

2  That the king4428 said559 unto413 Nathan5416 the prophet,5030 See7200 now,4994 I595 dwell3427 in a house1004 of cedar,730 but the ark727 of God430 dwelleth3427 within8432 curtains.3407

3  And Nathan5416 said559 to413 the king,4428 Go,1980 do6213 all3605 that834 is in thine heart;3824 for3588 the LORD3068 is with5973 thee.

4  And it came to pass1961 that1931 night,3915 that the word1697 of the LORD3068 came1961 unto413 Nathan,5416 saying,559

5  Go1980 and tell559 413 my servant5650 David,1732 Thus3541 saith559 the LORD,3068 Shalt thou859 build1129 me a house1004 for me to dwell3427 in?

6  Whereas3588 I have not3808 dwelt3427 in any house1004 since the time4480 3117 that I brought up5927 853 the children1121 of Israel3478 out of Egypt,4480 4714 even to5704 this2088 day,3117 but have1961 walked1980 in a tent168 and in a tabernacle.4908

7  In all3605 the places wherein834 I have walked1980 with all3605 the children1121 of Israel3478 spoke1696 I a word1697 with854 any259 of the tribes7626 of Israel,3478 whom834 I commanded6680 to feed7462 853 my people5971 853 Israel,3478 saying,559 Why4100 build1129 ye not3808 me a house1004 of cedar?730

8  Now6258 therefore3541 so shalt thou say559 unto my servant5650 David,1732 Thus3541 saith559 the LORD3068 of hosts,6635 I589 took3947 thee from4480 the sheepcote,5116 from following4480 310 the sheep,6629 to be1961 ruler5057 over5921 my people,5971 over5921 Israel:3478

9  And I was1961 with5973 thee whithersoever3605 834 thou wentest,1980 and have cut off3772 853 all3605 thine enemies341 out of thy sight,4480 6440 and have made6213 thee a great1419 name,8034 like unto the name8034 of the great1419 men that834 are in the earth.776

10  Moreover I will appoint7760 a place4725 for my people5971 Israel,3478 and will plant5193 them, that they may dwell7931 in a place8478 of their own, and move7264 no3808 more;5750 neither3808 shall the children1121 of wickedness5766 afflict6031 them any more,3254 as834 formerly,7223

11  And as since4480 the time3117 that834 I commanded6680 judges8199 to be over5921 my people5971 Israel,3478 and have caused thee to rest5117 from all4480 3605 thine enemies.341 Also the LORD3068 telleth5046 thee that3588 he will make6213 thee a house.1004

12  And when3588 thy days3117 be fulfilled,4390 and thou shalt sleep7901 with854 thy fathers,1 I will set up6965 853 thy seed2233 after310 thee, which834 shall proceed3318 out of thy bowels,4480 4578 and I will establish3559 853 his kingdom.4467

13  He1931 shall build1129 a house1004 for my name,8034 and I will establish3559 853 the throne3678 of his kingdom4467 forever.5704 5769

14  I589 will be1961 his father,1 and he1931 shall be1961 my son.1121 If834 he commit iniquity,5753 I will chasten3198 him with the rod7626 of men,376 and with the stripes5061 of the children1121 of men:120

15  But my mercy2617 shall not3808 depart away5493 from4480 him, as834 I took5493 it from4480 5973 Saul,7586 whom834 I put away5493 before4480 6440 thee.

16  And thine house1004 and thy kingdom4467 shall be established539 forever5704 5769 before6440 thee: thy throne3678 shall be1961 established3559 forever.5704 5769

17  According to all3605 these428 words,1697 and according to all3605 this2088 vision,2384 so3651 did Nathan5416 speak1696 unto413 David.1732

18  Then went935 king4428 David1732 in, and sat3427 before6440 the LORD,3069 and he said,559 Who4310 am I,595 O Lord136 GOD?3069 and what4310 is my house,1004 that3588 thou hast brought935 me hitherto?5704 1988

19  And this2063 was yet5750 a small6994 thing in thy sight,5869 O Lord136 GOD;3069 but thou hast spoken1696 also1571 of413 thy servant's5650 house1004 for a great while to come.4480 7350 And is this2063 the manner8452 of man,120 O Lord136 GOD?3069

20  And what4100 can David1732 say3254 1696 more5750 unto413 thee? for thou,859 Lord136 GOD,3069 knowest3045 853 thy servant.5650

21  For thy word's sake,5668 1697 and according to thine own heart,3820 hast thou done6213 853 all3605 these2063 great things,1420 to make 853 thy servant5650 know3045 them.

22  Wherefore5921 3651 thou art great,1431 O LORD3068 God:136 for3588 there is none369 like thee,3644 neither369 is there any God430 beside2108 thee, according to all3605 that834 we have heard8085 with our ears.241

23  And what4310 one259 nation1471 in the earth776 is like thy people,5971 even like Israel,3478 whom834 God430 went1980 to redeem6299 for a people5971 to himself, and to make7760 him a name,8034 and to do6213 for you great1420 things and terrible,3372 for thy land,776 before4480 6440 thy people,5971 which834 thou redeemedst6299 to thee from Egypt,4480 4714 from the nations1471 and their gods?430

24  For thou hast confirmed3559 to thyself 853 thy people5971 Israel3478 to be a people5971 unto thee forever:5704 5769 and thou,859 LORD,3068 art become1961 their God.430

25  And now,6258 O LORD3068 God,430 the word1697 that834 thou hast spoken1696 concerning5921 thy servant,5650 and concerning5921 his house,1004 establish6965 it, forever,5704 5769 and do6213 as834 thou hast said.1696

26  And let thy name8034 be magnified1431 forever,5704 5769 saying,559 The LORD3068 of hosts6635 is the God430 over5921 Israel:3478 and let the house1004 of thy servant5650 David1732 be1961 established3559 before6440 thee.

27  For3588 thou,859 O LORD3068 of hosts,6635 God430 of Israel,3478 hast revealed1540 241 to thy servant,5650 saying,559 I will build1129 thee a house:1004 therefore5921 3651 hath thy servant5650 found4672 in 853 his heart3820 to pray6419 853 this2063 prayer8605 unto413 thee.

28  And now,6258 O Lord136 GOD,3069 thou859 art that1931 God,430 and thy words1697 be1961 true,571 and thou hast promised1696 853 this2063 goodness2896 unto413 thy servant:5650

29  Therefore now6258 let it please2794 thee to bless1288 853 the house1004 of thy servant,5650 that it may continue1961 forever5769 before6440 thee: for3588 thou,859 O Lord136 GOD,3069 hast spoken1696 it: and with thy blessing4480 1293 let the house1004 of thy servant5650 be blessed1288 forever.5769


1 καὶ ἐγένετο ὅτε ἐκάθισεν ὁ βασιλεὺς ἐν τῷ οἴκῳ αὐτοῦ καὶ κύριος κατεκληρονόμησεν αὐτὸν κύκλῳ ἀπὸ πάντων τῶν ἐχθρῶν αὐτοῦ τῶν κύκλῳ

2 καὶ εἶπεν ὁ βασιλεὺς πρὸς Ναθαν τὸν προφήτην ἰδοὺ δὴ ἐγὼ κατοικῶ ἐν οἴκῳ κεδρίνῳ καὶ ἡ κιβωτὸς τοῦ θεοῦ κάθηται ἐν μέσῳ τῆς σκηνῆς

3 καὶ εἶπεν Ναθαν πρὸς τὸν βασιλέα πάντα ὅσα ἂν ἐν τῇ καρδίᾳ σου βάδιζε καὶ ποίει ὅτι κύριος μετὰ σοῦ

4 καὶ ἐγένετο τῇ νυκτὶ ἐκείνῃ καὶ ἐγένετο ῥῆμα κυρίου πρὸς Ναθαν λέγων

5 πορεύου καὶ εἰπὸν πρὸς τὸν δοῦλόν μου Δαυιδ τάδε λέγει κύριος οὐ σὺ οἰκοδομήσεις μοι οἶκον τοῦ κατοικῆσαί με

6 ὅτι οὐ κατῴκηκα ἐν οἴκῳ ἀφ᾽ ἧς ἡμέρας ἀνήγαγον ἐξ Αἰγύπτου τοὺς υἱοὺς Ισραηλ ἕως τῆς ἡμέρας ταύτης καὶ ἤμην ἐμπεριπατῶν ἐν καταλύματι καὶ ἐν σκηνῇ

7 ἐν πᾶσιν οἷς διῆλθον ἐν παντὶ Ισραηλ εἰ λαλῶν ἐλάλησα πρὸς μίαν φυλὴν τοῦ Ισραηλ ᾧ ἐνετειλάμην ποιμαίνειν τὸν λαόν μου Ισραηλ λέγων τί ὅτι οὐκ ᾠκοδομήκατέ μοι οἶκον κέδρινον

8 καὶ νῦν τάδε ἐρεῖς τῷ δούλῳ μου Δαυιδ τάδε λέγει κύριος παντοκράτωρ ἔλαβόν σε ἐκ τῆς μάνδρας τῶν προβάτων τοῦ εἶναί σε εἰς ἡγούμενον ἐπὶ τὸν λαόν μου ἐπὶ τὸν Ισραηλ

9 καὶ ἤμην μετὰ σοῦ ἐν πᾶσιν οἷς ἐπορεύου καὶ ἐξωλέθρευσα πάντας τοὺς ἐχθρούς σου ἀπὸ προσώπου σου καὶ ἐποίησά σε ὀνομαστὸν κατὰ τὸ ὄνομα τῶν μεγάλων τῶν ἐπὶ τῆς γῆς

10 καὶ θήσομαι τόπον τῷ λαῷ μου τῷ Ισραηλ καὶ καταφυτεύσω αὐτόν καὶ κατασκηνώσει καθ᾽ ἑαυτὸν καὶ οὐ μεριμνήσει οὐκέτι καὶ οὐ προσθήσει υἱὸς ἀδικίας τοῦ ταπεινῶσαι αὐτὸν καθὼς ἀπ᾽ ἀρχῆς

11 ἀπὸ τῶν ἡμερῶν ὧν ἔταξα κριτὰς ἐπὶ τὸν λαόν μου Ισραηλ καὶ ἀναπαύσω σε ἀπὸ πάντων τῶν ἐχθρῶν σου καὶ ἀπαγγελεῖ σοι κύριος ὅτι οἶκον οἰκοδομήσεις αὐτῷ

12 καὶ ἔσται ἐὰν πληρωθῶσιν αἱ ἡμέραι σου καὶ κοιμηθήσῃ μετὰ τῶν πατέρων σου καὶ ἀναστήσω τὸ σπέρμα σου μετὰ σέ ὃς ἔσται ἐκ τῆς κοιλίας σου καὶ ἑτοιμάσω τὴν βασιλείαν αὐτοῦ

13 αὐτὸς οἰκοδομήσει μοι οἶκον τῷ ὀνόματί μου καὶ ἀνορθώσω τὸν θρόνον αὐτοῦ ἕως εἰς τὸν αἰῶνα

14 ἐγὼ ἔσομαι αὐτῷ εἰς πατέρα καὶ αὐτὸς ἔσται μοι εἰς υἱόν καὶ ἐὰν ἔλθῃ ἡ ἀδικία αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐλέγξω αὐτὸν ἐν ῥάβδῳ ἀνδρῶν καὶ ἐν ἁφαῖς υἱῶν ἀνθρώπων

15 τὸ δὲ ἔλεός μου οὐκ ἀποστήσω ἀπ᾽ αὐτοῦ καθὼς ἀπέστησα ἀφ᾽ ὧν ἀπέστησα ἐκ προσώπου μου

16 καὶ πιστωθήσεται ὁ οἶκος αὐτοῦ καὶ ἡ βασιλεία αὐτοῦ ἕως αἰῶνος ἐνώπιον ἐμοῦ καὶ ὁ θρόνος αὐτοῦ ἔσται ἀνωρθωμένος εἰς τὸν αἰῶνα

17 κατὰ πάντας τοὺς λόγους τούτους καὶ κατὰ πᾶσαν τὴν ὅρασιν ταύτην οὕτως ἐλάλησεν Ναθαν πρὸς Δαυιδ

18 καὶ εἰσῆλθεν ὁ βασιλεὺς Δαυιδ καὶ ἐκάθισεν ἐνώπιον κυρίου καὶ εἶπεν τίς εἰμι ἐγώ κύριέ μου κύριε καὶ τίς ὁ οἶκός μου ὅτι ἠγάπηκάς με ἕως τούτων

19 καὶ κατεσμικρύνθη μικρὸν ἐνώπιόν σου κύριέ μου κύριε καὶ ἐλάλησας ὑπὲρ τοῦ οἴκου τοῦ δούλου σου εἰς μακράν οὗτος δὲ ὁ νόμος τοῦ ἀνθρώπου κύριέ μου κύριε

20 καὶ τί προσθήσει Δαυιδ ἔτι τοῦ λαλῆσαι πρὸς σέ καὶ νῦν σὺ οἶδας τὸν δοῦλόν σου κύριέ μου κύριε

21 διὰ τὸν λόγον σου πεποίηκας καὶ κατὰ τὴν καρδίαν σου ἐποίησας πᾶσαν τὴν μεγαλωσύνην ταύτην γνωρίσαι τῷ δούλῳ σου

22 ἕνεκεν τοῦ μεγαλῦναί σε κύριέ μου κύριε ὅτι οὐκ ἔστιν ὡς σὺ καὶ οὐκ ἔστιν θεὸς πλὴν σοῦ ἐν πᾶσιν οἷς ἠκούσαμεν ἐν τοῖς ὠσὶν ἡμῶν

23 καὶ τίς ὡς ὁ λαός σου Ισραηλ ἔθνος ἄλλο ἐν τῇ γῇ ὡς ὡδήγησεν αὐτὸν ὁ θεὸς τοῦ λυτρώσασθαι αὐτῷ λαὸν τοῦ θέσθαι σε ὄνομα τοῦ ποιῆσαι μεγαλωσύνην καὶ ἐπιφάνειαν τοῦ ἐκβαλεῖν σε ἐκ προσώπου τοῦ λαοῦ σου οὗ ἐλυτρώσω σεαυτῷ ἐξ Αἰγύπτου ἔθνη καὶ σκηνώματα

24 καὶ ἡτοίμασας σεαυτῷ τὸν λαόν σου Ισραηλ λαὸν ἕως αἰῶνος καὶ σύ κύριε ἐγένου αὐτοῖς εἰς θεόν

25 καὶ νῦν κύριέ μου κύριε τὸ ῥῆμα ὃ ἐλάλησας περὶ τοῦ δούλου σου καὶ τοῦ οἴκου αὐτοῦ πίστωσον ἕως αἰῶνος κύριε παντοκράτωρ θεὲ τοῦ Ισραηλ καὶ νῦν καθὼς ἐλάλησας

26 μεγαλυνθείη τὸ ὄνομά σου ἕως αἰῶνος

27 κύριε παντοκράτωρ θεὸς Ισραηλ ἀπεκάλυψας τὸ ὠτίον τοῦ δούλου σου λέγων οἶκον οἰκοδομήσω σοι διὰ τοῦτο εὗρεν ὁ δοῦλός σου τὴν καρδίαν ἑαυτοῦ τοῦ προσεύξασθαι πρὸς σὲ τὴν προσευχὴν ταύτην

28 καὶ νῦν κύριέ μου κύριε σὺ εἶ ὁ θεός καὶ οἱ λόγοι σου ἔσονται ἀληθινοί καὶ ἐλάλησας ὑπὲρ τοῦ δούλου σου τὰ ἀγαθὰ ταῦτα

29 καὶ νῦν ἄρξαι καὶ εὐλόγησον τὸν οἶκον τοῦ δούλου σου τοῦ εἶναι εἰς τὸν αἰῶνα ἐνώπιόν σου ὅτι σὺ εἶ κύριέ μου κύριε ἐλάλησας καὶ ἀπὸ τῆς εὐλογίας σου εὐλογηθήσεται ὁ οἶκος τοῦ δούλου σου εἰς τὸν αἰῶνα

1 Factum est autem cum sedisset rex in domo sua, et Dominus dedisset ei requiem undique ab universis inimicis suis,

2 dixit ad Nathan prophetam: Videsne quod ego habitem in domo cedrina, et arca Dei posita sit in medio pellium?

3 Dixitque Nathan ad regem: Omne quod est in corde tuo, vade, fac: quia Dominus tecum est.

4 Factum est autem in illa nocte: et ecce sermo Domini ad Nathan, dicens:

5 Vade, et loquere ad servum meum David: Hæc dicit Dominus: Numquid tu ædificabis mihi domum ad habitandum?

6 Neque enim habitavi in domo ex die illa, qua eduxi filios Israël de terra Ægypti, usque in diem hanc: sed ambulabam in tabernaculo, et in tentorio.

7 Per cuncta loca quæ transivi cum omnibus filiis Israël, numquid loquens locutus sum ad unam de tribubus Israël, cui præcepi ut pasceret populum meum Israël, dicens: Quare non ædificastis mihi domum cedrinam?

8 Et nunc hæc dices servo meo David: Hæc dicit Dominus exercituum: Ego tuli te de pascuis sequentem greges, ut esses dux super populum meum Israël:

9 et fui tecum in omnibus ubicumque ambulasti, et interfeci universos inimicos tuos a facie tua: fecique tibi nomen grande, juxta nomen magnorum qui sunt in terra.

10 Et ponam locum populo meo Israël, et plantabo eum, et habitabit sub eo, et non turbabitur amplius: nec addent filii iniquitatis ut affligant eum sicut prius,

11 ex die qua constitui judices super populum meum Israël: et requiem dabo tibi ab omnibus inimicis tuis: prædicitque tibi Dominus quod domum faciat tibi Dominus.

12 Cumque completi fuerint dies tui, et dormieris cum patribus tuis, suscitabo semen tuum post te, quod egredietur de utero tuo, et firmabo regnum ejus.

13 Ipse ædificabit domum nomini meo, et stabiliam thronum regni ejus usque in sempiternum.

14 Ego ero ei in patrem, et ipse erit mihi in filium: qui si inique aliquid gesserit, arguam eum in virga virorum, et in plagis filiorum hominum.

15 Misericordiam autem meam non auferam ab eo, sicut abstuli a Saul, quem amovi a facie mea.

16 Et fidelis erit domus tua, et regnum tuum usque in æternum ante faciem tuam, et thronus tuus erit firmus jugiter.

17 Secundum omnia verba hæc, et juxta universam visionem istam, sic locutus est Nathan ad David.

18 Ingressus est autem rex David, et sedit coram Domino, et dixit: Quis ego sum, Domine Deus, et quæ domus mea, quia adduxisti me hucusque?

19 Sed et hoc parum visum est in conspectu tuo, Domine Deus, nisi loquereris etiam de domo servi tui in longinquum: ista est enim lex Adam, Domine Deus.

20 Quid ergo addere poterit adhuc David, ut loquatur ad te? tu enim scis servum tuum, Domine Deus.

21 Propter verbum tuum, et secundum cor tuum, fecisti omnia magnalia hæc, ita ut notum faceres servo tuo.

22 Idcirco magnificatus es, Domine Deus, quia non est similis tui, neque est deus extra te, in omnibus quæ audivimus auribus nostris.

23 Quæ est autem ut populus tuus Israël gens in terra, propter quam ivit Deus ut redimeret eam sibi in populum, et poneret sibi nomen, faceretque eis magnalia et horribilia super terram a facie populi tui quem redemisti tibi ex Ægypto, gentem, et deum ejus.

24 Firmasti enim tibi populum tuum Israël in populum sempiternum: et tu, Domine Deus, factus es eis in Deum.

25 Nunc ergo Domine Deus, verbum quod locutus es super servum tuum, et super domum ejus, suscita in sempiternum: et fac sicut locutus es,

26 ut magnificetur nomen tuum usque in sempiternum, atque dicatur: Dominus exercituum, Deus super Israël. Et domus servi tui David erit stabilita coram Domino,

27 quia tu, Domine exercituum Deus Israël, revelasti aurem servi tui, dicens: Domum ædificabo tibi: propterea invenit servus tuus cor suum ut oraret te oratione hac.

28 Nunc ergo Domine Deus, tu es Deus, et verba tua erunt vera: locutus es enim ad servum tuum bona hæc.

29 Incipe ergo, et benedic domui servi tui, ut sit in sempiternum coram te: quia tu, Domine Deus, locutus es, et benedictione tua benedicetur domus servi tui in sempiternum.
