2 Samuel 11


1  And it came to pass,1961 after the year8141 was expired,8666 at the time6256 when kings4428 go forth3318 to battle, that David1732 sent7971 853 Joab,3097 and his servants5650 with5973 him, and all3605 Israel;3478 and they destroyed7843 853 the children1121 of Ammon,5983 and besieged6696 5921 Rabbah.7237 But David1732 tarried3427 still at Jerusalem.3389

2  And it came to pass1961 in an eveningtide,6256 6153 that David1732 arose6965 from off4480 5921 his bed,4904 and walked1980 upon5921 the roof1406 of the king's4428 house:1004 and from4480 5921 the roof1406 he saw7200 a woman802 washing7364 herself; and the woman802 was very3966 beautiful2896 to look4758 upon.

3  And David1732 sent7971 and inquired1875 after the woman.802 And one said,559 Is not3808 this2063 Bath-sheba,1339 the daughter1323 of Eliam,463 the wife802 of Uriah223 the Hittite?2850

4  And David1732 sent7971 messengers,4397 and took3947 her; and she came935 in unto413 him, and he lay7901 with her;5973 for she1931 was purified6942 from her uncleanness:4480 2932 and she returned7725 unto413 her house.1004

5  And the woman802 conceived,2029 and sent7971 and told5046 David,1732 and said,559 I595 am with child.2030

6  And David1732 sent7971 to413 Joab,3097 saying, Send7971 413 me 853 Uriah223 the Hittite.2850 And Joab3097 sent7971 853 Uriah223 to413 David.1732

7  And when Uriah223 was come935 unto413 him, David1732 demanded7592 of him how Joab3097 did,7965 and how the people5971 did,7965 and how the war4421 prospered.7965

8  And David1732 said559 to Uriah,223 Go down3381 to thy house,1004 and wash7364 thy feet.7272 And Uriah223 departed3318 out of the king's house,4480 1004 4428 and there followed3318 310 him a mess4864 of meat from the king.4428

9  But Uriah223 slept7901 at the door6607 of the king's4428 house1004 with854 all3605 the servants5650 of his lord,113 and went3381 not3808 down to413 his house.1004

10  And when they had told5046 David,1732 saying,559 Uriah223 went not down3381 3808 unto413 his house,1004 David1732 said559 unto413 Uriah,223 Camest935 thou859 not3808 from thy journey?4480 1870 why4069 then didst thou not3808 go down3381 unto413 thine house?1004

11  And Uriah223 said559 unto413 David,1732 The ark,727 and Israel,3478 and Judah,3063 abide3427 in tents;5521 and my lord113 Joab,3097 and the servants5650 of my lord,113 are encamped2583 in5921 the open6440 fields;7704 shall I589 then go935 into413 mine house,1004 to eat398 and to drink,8354 and to lie7901 with5973 my wife?802 as thou livest,2416 and as thy soul5315 liveth,2416 I will not do6213 853 this2088 thing.1697

12  And David1732 said559 to413 Uriah,223 Tarry3427 here2088 today3117 also,1571 and tomorrow4279 I will let thee depart.7971 So Uriah223 abode3427 in Jerusalem3389 that1931 day,3117 and the morrow.4480 4283

13  And when David1732 had called7121 him, he did eat398 and drink8354 before6440 him; and he made him drunk:7937 and at even6153 he went out3318 to lie7901 on his bed4904 with5973 the servants5650 of his lord,113 but went3381 not3808 down to413 his house.1004

14  And it came to pass1961 in the morning,1242 that David1732 wrote3789 a letter5612 to413 Joab,3097 and sent7971 it by the hand3027 of Uriah.223

15  And he wrote3789 in the letter,5612 saying,559 Set3051 ye 853 Uriah223 in413 the forefront4136 6440 of the hottest2389 battle,4421 and retire7725 ye from4480 310 him, that he may be smitten,5221 and die.4191

16  And it came to pass,1961 when Joab3097 observed8104 413 the city,5892 that he assigned5414 853 Uriah223 unto413 a place4725 where834 8033 he knew3045 that3588 valiant2428 men376 were.

17  And the men376 of the city5892 went out,3318 and fought3898 with854 Joab:3097 and there fell5307 some of4480 the people5971 of the servants4480 5650 of David;1732 and Uriah223 the Hittite2850 died4191 also.1571

18  Then Joab3097 sent7971 and told5046 David1732 853 all3605 the things1697 concerning the war;4421

19  And charged6680 853 the messenger,4397 saying,559 When thou hast made an end3615 of telling1696 the matters1697 of the war4421 unto413 the king,4428

20  And if518 so be1961 that the king's4428 wrath2534 arise,5927 and he say559 unto thee, Wherefore4069 approached5066 ye so nigh unto413 the city5892 when ye did fight?3898 knew3045 ye not3808 that834 they would shoot3384 from4480 5921 the wall?2346

21  Who4310 smote5221 853 Abimelech40 the son1121 of Jerubbesheth?3380 did not3808 a woman802 cast7993 a piece6400 of a millstone7393 upon5921 him from4480 5921 the wall,2346 that he died4191 in Thebez?8405 why4100 went ye nigh5066 413 the wall?2346 then say559 thou, Thy servant5650 Uriah223 the Hittite2850 is dead4191 also.1571

22  So the messenger4397 went,1980 and came935 and showed5046 David1732 853 all3605 that834 Joab3097 had sent7971 him for.

23  And the messenger4397 said559 unto413 David,1732 Surely3588 the men376 prevailed1396 against5921 us, and came out3318 unto413 us into the field,7704 and we were1961 upon5921 them even unto5704 the entering6607 of the gate.8179

24  And the shooters3384 shot3384 from off4480 5921 the wall2346 upon413 thy servants;5650 and some of the king's servants4480 5650 4428 be dead,4191 and thy servant5650 Uriah223 the Hittite2850 is dead4191 also.1571

25  Then David1732 said559 unto413 the messenger,4397 Thus3541 shalt thou say559 unto413 Joab,3097 Let not408 853 this2088 thing1697 displease3415 5869 thee, for3588 the sword2719 devoureth398 one2088 as well as another:2090 make thy battle4421 more strong2388 against413 the city,5892 and overthrow2040 it: and encourage2388 thou him.

26  And when the wife802 of Uriah223 heard8085 that3588 Uriah223 her husband376 was dead,4191 she mourned5594 for5921 her husband.1167

27  And when the mourning60 was past,5674 David1732 sent7971 and fetched622 her to413 his house,1004 and she became1961 his wife,802 and bore3205 him a son.1121 But the thing1697 that834 David1732 had done6213 displeased3415 5869 the LORD.3068


1 καὶ ἐγένετο ἐπιστρέψαντος τοῦ ἐνιαυτοῦ εἰς τὸν καιρὸν τῆς ἐξοδίας τῶν βασιλέων καὶ ἀπέστειλεν Δαυιδ τὸν Ιωαβ καὶ τοὺς παῖδας αὐτοῦ μετ᾽ αὐτοῦ καὶ τὸν πάντα Ισραηλ καὶ διέφθειραν τοὺς υἱοὺς Αμμων καὶ διεκάθισαν ἐπὶ Ραββαθ καὶ Δαυιδ ἐκάθισεν ἐν Ιερουσαλημ

2 καὶ ἐγένετο πρὸς ἑσπέραν καὶ ἀνέστη Δαυιδ ἀπὸ τῆς κοίτης αὐτοῦ καὶ περιεπάτει ἐπὶ τοῦ δώματος τοῦ οἴκου τοῦ βασιλέως καὶ εἶδεν γυναῖκα λουομένην ἀπὸ τοῦ δώματος καὶ ἡ γυνὴ καλὴ τῷ εἴδει σφόδρα

3 καὶ ἀπέστειλεν Δαυιδ καὶ ἐζήτησεν τὴν γυναῖκα καὶ εἶπεν οὐχὶ αὕτη Βηρσαβεε θυγάτηρ Ελιαβ γυνὴ Ουριου τοῦ Χετταίου

4 καὶ ἀπέστειλεν Δαυιδ ἀγγέλους καὶ ἔλαβεν αὐτήν καὶ εἰσῆλθεν πρὸς αὐτόν καὶ ἐκοιμήθη μετ᾽ αὐτῆς καὶ αὐτὴ ἁγιαζομένη ἀπὸ ἀκαθαρσίας αὐτῆς καὶ ἀπέστρεψεν εἰς τὸν οἶκον αὐτῆς

5 καὶ ἐν γαστρὶ ἔλαβεν ἡ γυνή καὶ ἀποστείλασα ἀπήγγειλεν τῷ Δαυιδ καὶ εἶπεν ἐγώ εἰμι ἐν γαστρὶ ἔχω

6 καὶ ἀπέστειλεν Δαυιδ πρὸς Ιωαβ λέγων ἀπόστειλον πρός με τὸν Ουριαν τὸν Χετταῖον καὶ ἀπέστειλεν Ιωαβ τὸν Ουριαν πρὸς Δαυιδ

7 καὶ παραγίνεται Ουριας καὶ εἰσῆλθεν πρὸς αὐτόν καὶ ἐπηρώτησεν Δαυιδ εἰς εἰρήνην Ιωαβ καὶ εἰς εἰρήνην τοῦ λαοῦ καὶ εἰς εἰρήνην τοῦ πολέμου

8 καὶ εἶπεν Δαυιδ τῷ Ουρια κατάβηθι εἰς τὸν οἶκόν σου καὶ νίψαι τοὺς πόδας σου καὶ ἐξῆλθεν Ουριας ἐξ οἴκου τοῦ βασιλέως καὶ ἐξῆλθεν ὀπίσω αὐτοῦ ἄρσις τοῦ βασιλέως

9 καὶ ἐκοιμήθη Ουριας παρὰ τῇ θύρᾳ τοῦ βασιλέως μετὰ τῶν δούλων τοῦ κυρίου αὐτοῦ καὶ οὐ κατέβη εἰς τὸν οἶκον αὐτοῦ

10 καὶ ἀνήγγειλαν τῷ Δαυιδ λέγοντες ὅτι οὐ κατέβη Ουριας εἰς τὸν οἶκον αὐτοῦ καὶ εἶπεν Δαυιδ πρὸς Ουριαν οὐχὶ ἐξ ὁδοῦ σὺ ἔρχῃ τί ὅτι οὐ κατέβης εἰς τὸν οἶκόν σου

11 καὶ εἶπεν Ουριας πρὸς Δαυιδ ἡ κιβωτὸς καὶ Ισραηλ καὶ Ιουδας κατοικοῦσιν ἐν σκηναῖς καὶ ὁ κύριός μου Ιωαβ καὶ οἱ δοῦλοι τοῦ κυρίου μου ἐπὶ πρόσωπον τοῦ ἀγροῦ παρεμβάλλουσιν καὶ ἐγὼ εἰσελεύσομαι εἰς τὸν οἶκόν μου φαγεῖν καὶ πιεῖν καὶ κοιμηθῆναι μετὰ τῆς γυναικός μου πῶς ζῇ ἡ ψυχή σου εἰ ποιήσω τὸ ῥῆμα τοῦτο

12 καὶ εἶπεν Δαυιδ πρὸς Ουριαν κάθισον ἐνταῦθα καί γε σήμερον καὶ αὔριον ἐξαποστελῶ σε καὶ ἐκάθισεν Ουριας ἐν Ιερουσαλημ ἐν τῇ ἡμέρᾳ ἐκείνῃ καὶ τῇ ἐπαύριον

13 καὶ ἐκάλεσεν αὐτὸν Δαυιδ καὶ ἔφαγεν ἐνώπιον αὐτοῦ καὶ ἔπιεν καὶ ἐμέθυσεν αὐτόν καὶ ἐξῆλθεν ἑσπέρας τοῦ κοιμηθῆναι ἐπὶ τῆς κοίτης αὐτοῦ μετὰ τῶν δούλων τοῦ κυρίου αὐτοῦ καὶ εἰς τὸν οἶκον αὐτοῦ οὐ κατέβη

14 καὶ ἐγένετο πρωὶ καὶ ἔγραψεν Δαυιδ βιβλίον πρὸς Ιωαβ καὶ ἀπέστειλεν ἐν χειρὶ Ουριου

15 καὶ ἔγραψεν ἐν τῷ βιβλίῳ λέγων εἰσάγαγε τὸν Ουριαν ἐξ ἐναντίας τοῦ πολέμου τοῦ κραταιοῦ καὶ ἀποστραφήσεσθε ἀπὸ ὄπισθεν αὐτοῦ καὶ πληγήσεται καὶ ἀποθανεῖται

16 καὶ ἐγενήθη ἐν τῷ φυλάσσειν Ιωαβ ἐπὶ τὴν πόλιν καὶ ἔθηκεν τὸν Ουριαν εἰς τὸν τόπον οὗ ᾔδει ὅτι ἄνδρες δυνάμεως ἐκεῖ

17 καὶ ἐξῆλθον οἱ ἄνδρες τῆς πόλεως καὶ ἐπολέμουν μετὰ Ιωαβ καὶ ἔπεσαν ἐκ τοῦ λαοῦ ἐκ τῶν δούλων Δαυιδ καὶ ἀπέθανεν καί γε Ουριας ὁ Χετταῖος

18 καὶ ἀπέστειλεν Ιωαβ καὶ ἀπήγγειλεν τῷ βασιλεῖ πάντας τοὺς λόγους τοῦ πολέμου

19 καὶ ἐνετείλατο τῷ ἀγγέλῳ λέγων ἐν τῷ συντελέσαι σε πάντας τοὺς λόγους τοῦ πολέμου λαλῆσαι πρὸς τὸν βασιλέα

20 καὶ ἔσται ἐὰν ἀναβῇ ὁ θυμὸς τοῦ βασιλέως καὶ εἴπῃ σοι τί ὅτι ἠγγίσατε πρὸς τὴν πόλιν πολεμῆσαι οὐκ ᾔδειτε ὅτι τοξεύσουσιν ἀπάνωθεν τοῦ τείχους

21 τίς ἐπάταξεν τὸν Αβιμελεχ υἱὸν Ιεροβααλ οὐχὶ γυνὴ ἔρριψεν ἐπ᾽ αὐτὸν κλάσμα μύλου ἐπάνωθεν τοῦ τείχους καὶ ἀπέθανεν ἐν Θαμασι ἵνα τί προσηγάγετε πρὸς τὸ τεῖχος καὶ ἐρεῖς καί γε Ουριας ὁ δοῦλός σου ὁ Χετταῖος ἀπέθανεν

22 καὶ ἐπορεύθη ὁ ἄγγελος Ιωαβ πρὸς τὸν βασιλέα εἰς Ιερουσαλημ καὶ παρεγένετο καὶ ἀπήγγειλεν τῷ Δαυιδ πάντα ὅσα ἀπήγγειλεν αὐτῷ Ιωαβ πάντα τὰ ῥήματα τοῦ πολέμου καὶ ἐθυμώθη Δαυιδ πρὸς Ιωαβ καὶ εἶπεν πρὸς τὸν ἄγγελον ἵνα τί προσηγάγετε πρὸς τὴν πόλιν τοῦ πολεμῆσαι οὐκ ᾔδειτε ὅτι πληγήσεσθε ἀπὸ τοῦ τείχους τίς ἐπάταξεν τὸν Αβιμελεχ υἱὸν Ιεροβααλ οὐχὶ γυνὴ ἔρριψεν ἐπ᾽ αὐτὸν κλάσμα μύλου ἀπὸ τοῦ τείχους καὶ ἀπέθανεν ἐν Θαμασι ἵνα τί προσηγάγετε πρὸς τὸ τεῖχος

23 καὶ εἶπεν ὁ ἄγγελος πρὸς Δαυιδ ὅτι ἐκραταίωσαν ἐφ᾽ ἡμᾶς οἱ ἄνδρες καὶ ἐξῆλθαν ἐφ᾽ ἡμᾶς εἰς τὸν ἀγρόν καὶ ἐγενήθημεν ἐπ᾽ αὐτοὺς ἕως τῆς θύρας τῆς πύλης

24 καὶ ἐτόξευσαν οἱ τοξεύοντες πρὸς τοὺς παῖδάς σου ἀπάνωθεν τοῦ τείχους καὶ ἀπέθαναν τῶν παίδων τοῦ βασιλέως καί γε ὁ δοῦλός σου Ουριας ὁ Χετταῖος ἀπέθανεν

25 καὶ εἶπεν Δαυιδ πρὸς τὸν ἄγγελον τάδε ἐρεῖς πρὸς Ιωαβ μὴ πονηρὸν ἔστω ἐν ὀφθαλμοῖς σου τὸ ῥῆμα τοῦτο ὅτι ποτὲ μὲν οὕτως καὶ ποτὲ οὕτως φάγεται ἡ μάχαιρα κραταίωσον τὸν πόλεμόν σου πρὸς τὴν πόλιν καὶ κατάσπασον αὐτὴν καὶ κραταίωσον αὐτόν

26 καὶ ἤκουσεν ἡ γυνὴ Ουριου ὅτι ἀπέθανεν Ουριας ὁ ἀνὴρ αὐτῆς καὶ ἐκόψατο τὸν ἄνδρα αὐτῆς

27 καὶ διῆλθεν τὸ πένθος καὶ ἀπέστειλεν Δαυιδ καὶ συνήγαγεν αὐτὴν εἰς τὸν οἶκον αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐγενήθη αὐτῷ εἰς γυναῖκα καὶ ἔτεκεν αὐτῷ υἱόν καὶ πονηρὸν ἐφάνη τὸ ῥῆμα ὃ ἐποίησεν Δαυιδ ἐν ὀφθαλμοῖς κυρίου

1 Factum est autem, vertente anno, eo tempore quo solent reges ad bella procedere, misit David Joab, et servos suos cum eo, et universum Israël, et vastaverunt filios Ammon, et obsederunt Rabba: David autem remansit in Jerusalem.

2 Dum hæc agerentur, accidit ut surgeret David de strato suo post meridiem, et deambularet in solario domus regiæ: viditque mulierem se lavantem ex adverso super solarium suum: erat autem mulier pulchra valde.

3 Misit ergo rex, et requisivit quæ esset mulier. Nuntiatumque est ei quod ipsa esset Bethsabee filia Eliam, uxor Uriæ Hethæi.

4 Missis itaque David nuntiis, tulit eam: quæ cum ingressa esset ad illum, dormivit cum ea: statimque sanctificata est ab immunditia sua,

5 et reversa est domum suam concepto fœtu. Mittensque nuntiavit David, et ait: Concepi.

6 Misit autem David ad Joab, dicens: Mitte ad me Uriam Hethæum. Misitque Joab Uriam ad David.

7 Et venit Urias ad David. Quæsivitque David quam recte ageret Joab et populus, et quomodo administraretur bellum.

8 Et dixit David ad Uriam: Vade in domum tuam, et lava pedes tuos. Et egressus est Urias de domo regis, secutusque est eum cibus regius.

9 Dormivit autem Urias ante portam domus regiæ cum aliis servis domini sui, et non descendit ad domum suam.

10 Nuntiatumque est David a dicentibus: Non ivit Urias in domum suam. Et ait David ad Uriam: Numquid non de via venisti? quare non descendisti in domum tuam?

11 Et ait Urias ad David: Arca Dei et Israël et Juda habitant in papilionibus, et dominus meus Joab et servi domini mei super faciem terræ manent: et ego ingrediar domum meam, ut comedam et bibam, et dormiam cum uxore mea? Per salutem tuam, et per salutem animæ tuæ, non faciam rem hanc.

12 Ait ergo David ad Uriam: Mane hic etiam hodie, et cras dimittam te. Mansit Urias in Jerusalem in die illa et altera:

13 et vocavit eum David ut comederet coram se et biberet, et inebriavit eum: qui egressus vespere, dormivit in strato suo cum servis domini sui, et in domum suam non descendit.

14 Factum est ergo mane, et scripsit David epistolam ad Joab: misitque per manum Uriæ,

15 scribens in epistola: Ponite Uriam ex adverso belli, ubi fortissimum est prælium: et derelinquite eum, ut percussus intereat.

16 Igitur cum Joab obsideret urbem, posuit Uriam in loco ubi sciebat viros esse fortissimos.

17 Egressique viri de civitate, bellabant adversum Joab, et ceciderunt de populo servorum David, et mortuus est etiam Urias Hethæus.

18 Misit itaque Joab, et nuntiavit David omnia verba prælii:

19 præcepitque nuntio, dicens: Cum compleveris universos sermones belli ad regem,

20 si eum videris indignari, et dixerit: Quare accessistis ad murum, ut præliaremini? an ignorabatis quod multa desuper ex muro tela mittantur?

21 Quis percussit Abimelech filium Jerobaal? nonne mulier misit super eum fragmen molæ de muro, et interfecit eum in Thebes? quare juxta murum accessistis? dices: Etiam servus tuus Urias Hethæus occubuit.

22 Abiit ergo nuntius, et venit, et narravit David omnia quæ ei præceperat Joab.

23 Et dixit nuntius ad David: Prævaluerunt adversum nos viri, et egressi sunt ad nos in agrum: nos autem facto impetu persecuti eos sumus usque ad portam civitatis.

24 Et direxerunt jacula sagittarii ad servos tuos ex muro desuper, mortuique sunt de servis regis: quin etiam servus tuus Urias Hethæus mortuus est.

25 Et dixit David ad nuntium: Hæc dices Joab: Non te frangat ista res: varius enim eventus est belli, nunc hunc, et nunc illum consumit gladius: conforta bellatores tuos adversus urbem ut destruas eam, et exhortare eos.

26 Audivit autem uxor Uriæ quod mortuus esset Urias vir suus, et planxit eum.

27 Transacto autem luctu, misit David, et introduxit eam in domum suam, et facta est ei uxor, peperitque ei filium: et displicuit verbum hoc quod fecerat David, coram Domino.
