2 Samuel 12


1  And the LORD3068 sent7971 853 Nathan5416 unto413 David.1732 And he came935 unto413 him, and said559 unto him, There were1961 two8147 men376 in one259 city;5892 the one259 rich,6223 and the other259 poor.7326

2  The rich6223 man had1961 exceeding3966 many7235 flocks6629 and herds:1241

3  But the poor7326 man had nothing,369 3605 save3588 518 one259 little6996 ewe lamb,3535 which834 he had1961 bought7069 and nourished up:2421 and it grew up1431 together3162 with5973 him, and with5973 his children;1121 it did eat398 of his own meat,4480 6595 and drank8354 of his own cup,4480 3563 and lay7901 in his bosom,2436 and was1961 unto him as a daughter.1323

4  And there came935 a traveler1982 unto the rich6223 man,376 and he spared2550 to take3947 of his own flock4480 6629 and of his own herd,4480 1241 to dress6213 for the wayfaring man732 that was come935 unto him; but took3947 the poor7326 man's376 853 lamb,3535 and dressed6213 it for the man376 that was come935 to413 him.

5  And David's1732 anger639 was greatly3966 kindled2734 against the man;376 and he said559 to413 Nathan,5416 As the LORD3068 liveth,2416 the man376 that hath done6213 this2063 thing shall surely die:3588 1121 4194

6  And he shall restore7999 the lamb3535 fourfold,706 because6118 834 he did6213 853 this2088 thing,1697 and because5921 834 he had no3808 pity.2550

7  And Nathan5416 said559 to413 David,1732 Thou859 art the man.376 Thus3541 saith559 the LORD3068 God430 of Israel,3478 I595 anointed4886 thee king4428 over5921 Israel,3478 and I595 delivered5337 thee out of the hand4480 3027 of Saul;7586

8  And I gave5414 thee 853 thy master's113 house,1004 and thy master's113 wives802 into thy bosom,2436 and gave5414 thee 853 the house1004 of Israel3478 and of Judah;3063 and if518 that had been too little,4592 I would moreover have given3254 unto thee such2007 and such2007 things.

9  Wherefore4069 hast thou despised959 853 the commandment1697 of the LORD,3068 to do6213 evil7451 in his sight?5869 thou hast killed5221 853 Uriah223 the Hittite2850 with the sword,2719 and hast taken3947 his wife802 to be thy wife,802 and hast slain2026 him with the sword2719 of the children1121 of Ammon.5983

10  Now6258 therefore the sword2719 shall never3808 5704 5769 depart5493 from thine house;4480 1004 because6118 3588 thou hast despised959 me, and hast taken3947 853 the wife802 of Uriah223 the Hittite2850 to be1961 thy wife.802

11  Thus3541 saith559 the LORD,3068 Behold,2009 I will raise up6965 evil7451 against5921 thee out of thine own house,4480 1004 and I will take3947 853 thy wives802 before thine eyes,5869 and give5414 them unto thy neighbor,7453 and he shall lie7901 with5973 thy wives802 in the sight5869 of this2063 sun.8121

12  For3588 thou859 didst6213 it secretly:5643 but I589 will do6213 853 this2088 thing1697 before5048 all3605 Israel,3478 and before5048 the sun.8121

13  And David1732 said559 unto413 Nathan,5416 I have sinned2398 against the LORD.3068 And Nathan5416 said559 unto413 David,1732 The LORD3068 also1571 hath put away5674 thy sin;2403 thou shalt not3808 die.4191

14  Howbeit,657 because3588 by this2088 deed1697 thou hast given great occasion5006 853 to the enemies341 of the LORD3068 to blaspheme,5006 the child1121 also1571 that is born3209 unto thee shall surely die.4191 4191

15  And Nathan5416 departed1980 unto413 his house.1004 And the LORD3068 struck5062 853 the child3206 that834 Uriah's223 wife802 bore3205 unto David,1732 and it was very sick.605

16  David1732 therefore besought1245 853 God430 for1157 the child;5288 and David1732 fasted,6684 6685 and went935 in, and lay7901 all3605 night3885 upon the earth.776

17  And the elders2205 of his house1004 arose,6965 and went to5921 him, to raise him up6965 from4480 the earth:776 but he would14 not,3808 neither3808 did he eat1262 bread3899 with854 them.

18  And it came to pass1961 on the seventh7637 day,3117 that the child3206 died.4191 And the servants5650 of David1732 feared3372 to tell5046 him that3588 the child3206 was dead:4191 for3588 they said,559 Behold,2009 while the child3206 was1961 yet alive,2416 we spoke1696 unto413 him, and he would not3808 hearken8085 unto our voice:6963 how349 will he then vex6213 7451 himself, if we tell559 413 him that the child3206 is dead?4191

19  But when David1732 saw7200 that3588 his servants5650 whispered,3907 David1732 perceived995 that3588 the child3206 was dead:4191 therefore David1732 said559 unto413 his servants,5650 Is the child3206 dead?4191 And they said,559 He is dead.4191

20  Then David1732 arose6965 from the earth,4480 776 and washed,7364 and anointed5480 himself, and changed2498 his apparel,8071 and came935 into the house1004 of the LORD,3068 and worshiped:7812 then he came935 to413 his own house;1004 and when he required,7592 they set7760 bread3899 before him, and he did eat.398

21  Then said559 his servants5650 unto413 him, What4100 thing1697 is this2088 that834 thou hast done?6213 thou didst fast6684 and weep1058 for the child,3206 while5668 it was alive;2416 but when834 the child3206 was dead,4191 thou didst rise6965 and eat398 bread.3899

22  And he said,559 While the child3206 was yet5750 alive,2416 I fasted6684 and wept:1058 for3588 I said,559 Who4310 can tell3045 whether GOD3068 will be gracious2603 to me, that the child3206 may live?2416

23  But now6258 he is dead,4191 wherefore4100 2088 should I589 fast?6684 can3201 I bring him back7725 again?5750 I589 shall go1980 to413 him, but he1931 shall not3808 return7725 to413 me.

24  And David1732 comforted5162 853 Bath-sheba1339 his wife,802 and went935 in unto413 her, and lay7901 with5973 her: and she bore3205 a son,1121 and he called7121 853 his name8034 Solomon:8010 and the LORD3068 loved157 him.

25  And he sent7971 by the hand3027 of Nathan5416 the prophet;5030 and he called7121 853 his name8034 Jedidiah,3041 because5668 of the LORD.3068

26  And Joab3097 fought3898 against Rabbah7237 of the children1121 of Ammon,5983 and took3920 853 the royal4410 city.5892

27  And Joab3097 sent7971 messengers4397 to413 David,1732 and said,559 I have fought3898 against Rabbah,7237 and1571 have taken3920 853 the city5892 of waters.4325

28  Now6258 therefore gather622 853 the rest3499 of the people5971 together, and encamp2583 against5921 the city,5892 and take3920 it: lest6435 I589 take3920 853 the city,5892 and it be called7121 after5921 my name.8034

29  And David1732 gathered622 853 all3605 the people5971 together, and went1980 to Rabbah,7237 and fought3898 against it, and took3920 it.

30  And he took3947 853 their king's4428 crown5850 from off4480 5921 his head,7218 the weight4948 whereof was a talent3603 of gold2091 with the precious3368 stones:68 and it was1961 set on5921 David's1732 head.7218 And he brought forth3318 the spoil7998 of the city5892 in great3966 abundance.7235

31  And he brought forth3318 the people5971 that834 were therein, and put7760 them under saws,4050 and under harrows2757 of iron,1270 and under axes4037 of iron,1270 and made them pass through5674 853 the brickkiln:4404 and thus3651 did6213 he unto all3605 the cities5892 of the children1121 of Ammon.5983 So David1732 and all3605 the people5971 returned7725 unto Jerusalem.3389


1 καὶ ἀπέστειλεν κύριος τὸν Ναθαν τὸν προφήτην πρὸς Δαυιδ καὶ εἰσῆλθεν πρὸς αὐτὸν καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῷ δύο ἦσαν ἄνδρες ἐν πόλει μιᾷ εἷς πλούσιος καὶ εἷς πένης

2 καὶ τῷ πλουσίῳ ἦν ποίμνια καὶ βουκόλια πολλὰ σφόδρα

3 καὶ τῷ πένητι οὐδὲν ἀλλ᾽ ἢ ἀμνὰς μία μικρά ἣν ἐκτήσατο καὶ περιεποιήσατο καὶ ἐξέθρεψεν αὐτήν καὶ ἡδρύνθη μετ᾽ αὐτοῦ καὶ μετὰ τῶν υἱῶν αὐτοῦ ἐπὶ τὸ αὐτό ἐκ τοῦ ἄρτου αὐτοῦ ἤσθιεν καὶ ἐκ τοῦ ποτηρίου αὐτοῦ ἔπινεν καὶ ἐν τῷ κόλπῳ αὐτοῦ ἐκάθευδεν καὶ ἦν αὐτῷ ὡς θυγάτηρ

4 καὶ ἦλθεν πάροδος τῷ ἀνδρὶ τῷ πλουσίῳ καὶ ἐφείσατο λαβεῖν ἐκ τῶν ποιμνίων αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐκ τῶν βουκολίων αὐτοῦ τοῦ ποιῆσαι τῷ ξένῳ ὁδοιπόρῳ ἐλθόντι πρὸς αὐτὸν καὶ ἔλαβεν τὴν ἀμνάδα τοῦ πένητος καὶ ἐποίησεν αὐτὴν τῷ ἀνδρὶ τῷ ἐλθόντι πρὸς αὐτόν

5 καὶ ἐθυμώθη ὀργῇ Δαυιδ σφόδρα τῷ ἀνδρί καὶ εἶπεν Δαυιδ πρὸς Ναθαν ζῇ κύριος ὅτι υἱὸς θανάτου ὁ ἀνὴρ ὁ ποιήσας τοῦτο

6 καὶ τὴν ἀμνάδα ἀποτείσει ἑπταπλασίονα ἀνθ᾽ ὧν ὅτι ἐποίησεν τὸ ῥῆμα τοῦτο καὶ περὶ οὗ οὐκ ἐφείσατο

7 καὶ εἶπεν Ναθαν πρὸς Δαυιδ σὺ εἶ ὁ ἀνὴρ ὁ ποιήσας τοῦτο τάδε λέγει κύριος ὁ θεὸς Ισραηλ ἐγώ εἰμι ἔχρισά σε εἰς βασιλέα ἐπὶ Ισραηλ καὶ ἐγώ εἰμι ἐρρυσάμην σε ἐκ χειρὸς Σαουλ

8 καὶ ἔδωκά σοι τὸν οἶκον τοῦ κυρίου σου καὶ τὰς γυναῖκας τοῦ κυρίου σου ἐν τῷ κόλπῳ σου καὶ ἔδωκά σοι τὸν οἶκον Ισραηλ καὶ Ιουδα καὶ εἰ μικρόν ἐστιν προσθήσω σοι κατὰ ταῦτα

9 τί ὅτι ἐφαύλισας τὸν λόγον κυρίου τοῦ ποιῆσαι τὸ πονηρὸν ἐν ὀφθαλμοῖς αὐτοῦ τὸν Ουριαν τὸν Χετταῖον ἐπάταξας ἐν ῥομφαίᾳ καὶ τὴν γυναῖκα αὐτοῦ ἔλαβες σεαυτῷ εἰς γυναῖκα καὶ αὐτὸν ἀπέκτεινας ἐν ῥομφαίᾳ υἱῶν Αμμων

10 καὶ νῦν οὐκ ἀποστήσεται ῥομφαία ἐκ τοῦ οἴκου σου ἕως αἰῶνος ἀνθ᾽ ὧν ὅτι ἐξουδένωσάς με καὶ ἔλαβες τὴν γυναῖκα τοῦ Ουριου τοῦ Χετταίου τοῦ εἶναί σοι εἰς γυναῖκα

11 τάδε λέγει κύριος ἰδοὺ ἐγὼ ἐξεγείρω ἐπὶ σὲ κακὰ ἐκ τοῦ οἴκου σου καὶ λήμψομαι τὰς γυναῖκάς σου κατ᾽ ὀφθαλμούς σου καὶ δώσω τῷ πλησίον σου καὶ κοιμηθήσεται μετὰ τῶν γυναικῶν σου ἐναντίον τοῦ ἡλίου τούτου

12 ὅτι σὺ ἐποίησας κρυβῇ κἀγὼ ποιήσω τὸ ῥῆμα τοῦτο ἐναντίον παντὸς Ισραηλ καὶ ἀπέναντι τούτου τοῦ ἡλίου

13 καὶ εἶπεν Δαυιδ τῷ Ναθαν ἡμάρτηκα τῷ κυρίῳ καὶ εἶπεν Ναθαν πρὸς Δαυιδ καὶ κύριος παρεβίβασεν τὸ ἁμάρτημά σου οὐ μὴ ἀποθάνῃς

14 πλὴν ὅτι παροξύνων παρώξυνας τοὺς ἐχθροὺς κυρίου ἐν τῷ ῥήματι τούτῳ καί γε ὁ υἱός σου ὁ τεχθείς σοι θανάτῳ ἀποθανεῖται

15 καὶ ἀπῆλθεν Ναθαν εἰς τὸν οἶκον αὐτοῦ καὶ ἔθραυσεν κύριος τὸ παιδίον ὃ ἔτεκεν ἡ γυνὴ Ουριου τῷ Δαυιδ καὶ ἠρρώστησεν

16 καὶ ἐζήτησεν Δαυιδ τὸν θεὸν περὶ τοῦ παιδαρίου καὶ ἐνήστευσεν Δαυιδ νηστείαν καὶ εἰσῆλθεν καὶ ηὐλίσθη ἐν σάκκῳ ἐπὶ τῆς γῆς

17 καὶ ἀνέστησαν ἐπ᾽ αὐτὸν οἱ πρεσβύτεροι τοῦ οἴκου αὐτοῦ τοῦ ἐγεῖραι αὐτὸν ἀπὸ τῆς γῆς καὶ οὐκ ἠθέλησεν καὶ οὐ συνέφαγεν αὐτοῖς ἄρτον

18 καὶ ἐγένετο ἐν τῇ ἡμέρᾳ τῇ ἑβδόμῃ καὶ ἀπέθανε τὸ παιδάριον καὶ ἐφοβήθησαν οἱ δοῦλοι Δαυιδ ἀναγγεῖλαι αὐτῷ ὅτι τέθνηκεν τὸ παιδάριον ὅτι εἶπαν ἰδοὺ ἐν τῷ ἔτι τὸ παιδάριον ζῆν ἐλαλήσαμεν πρὸς αὐτόν καὶ οὐκ εἰσήκουσεν τῆς φωνῆς ἡμῶν καὶ πῶς εἴπωμεν πρὸς αὐτὸν ὅτι τέθνηκεν τὸ παιδάριον καὶ ποιήσει κακά

19 καὶ συνῆκεν Δαυιδ ὅτι οἱ παῖδες αὐτοῦ ψιθυρίζουσιν καὶ ἐνόησεν Δαυιδ ὅτι τέθνηκεν τὸ παιδάριον καὶ εἶπεν Δαυιδ πρὸς τοὺς παῖδας αὐτοῦ εἰ τέθνηκεν τὸ παιδάριον καὶ εἶπαν τέθνηκεν

20 καὶ ἀνέστη Δαυιδ ἐκ τῆς γῆς καὶ ἐλούσατο καὶ ἠλείψατο καὶ ἤλλαξεν τὰ ἱμάτια αὐτοῦ καὶ εἰσῆλθεν εἰς τὸν οἶκον τοῦ θεοῦ καὶ προσεκύνησεν αὐτῷ καὶ εἰσῆλθεν εἰς τὸν οἶκον αὐτοῦ καὶ ᾔτησεν ἄρτον φαγεῖν καὶ παρέθηκαν αὐτῷ ἄρτον καὶ ἔφαγεν

21 καὶ εἶπαν οἱ παῖδες αὐτοῦ πρὸς αὐτόν τί τὸ ῥῆμα τοῦτο ὃ ἐποίησας ἕνεκα τοῦ παιδαρίου ἔτι ζῶντος ἐνήστευες καὶ ἔκλαιες καὶ ἠγρύπνεις καὶ ἡνίκα ἀπέθανεν τὸ παιδάριον ἀνέστης καὶ ἔφαγες ἄρτον καὶ πέπωκας

22 καὶ εἶπεν Δαυιδ ἐν τῷ τὸ παιδάριον ἔτι ζῆν ἐνήστευσα καὶ ἔκλαυσα ὅτι εἶπα τίς οἶδεν εἰ ἐλεήσει με κύριος καὶ ζήσεται τὸ παιδάριον

23 καὶ νῦν τέθνηκεν ἵνα τί τοῦτο ἐγὼ νηστεύω μὴ δυνήσομαι ἐπιστρέψαι αὐτὸ ἔτι ἐγὼ πορεύσομαι πρὸς αὐτόν καὶ αὐτὸς οὐκ ἀναστρέψει πρός με

24 καὶ παρεκάλεσεν Δαυιδ Βηρσαβεε τὴν γυναῖκα αὐτοῦ καὶ εἰσῆλθεν πρὸς αὐτὴν καὶ ἐκοιμήθη μετ᾽ αὐτῆς καὶ συνέλαβεν καὶ ἔτεκεν υἱόν καὶ ἐκάλεσεν τὸ ὄνομα αὐτοῦ Σαλωμων καὶ κύριος ἠγάπησεν αὐτόν

25 καὶ ἀπέστειλεν ἐν χειρὶ Ναθαν τοῦ προφήτου καὶ ἐκάλεσεν τὸ ὄνομα αὐτοῦ Ιδεδι ἕνεκεν κυρίου

26 καὶ ἐπολέμησεν Ιωαβ ἐν Ραββαθ υἱῶν Αμμων καὶ κατέλαβεν τὴν πόλιν τῆς βασιλείας

27 καὶ ἀπέστειλεν Ιωαβ ἀγγέλους πρὸς Δαυιδ καὶ εἶπεν ἐπολέμησα ἐν Ραββαθ καὶ κατελαβόμην τὴν πόλιν τῶν ὑδάτων

28 καὶ νῦν συνάγαγε τὸ κατάλοιπον τοῦ λαοῦ καὶ παρέμβαλε ἐπὶ τὴν πόλιν καὶ προκαταλαβοῦ αὐτήν ἵνα μὴ προκαταλάβωμαι ἐγὼ τὴν πόλιν καὶ κληθῇ τὸ ὄνομά μου ἐπ᾽ αὐτήν

29 καὶ συνήγαγεν Δαυιδ πάντα τὸν λαὸν καὶ ἐπορεύθη εἰς Ραββαθ καὶ ἐπολέμησεν ἐν αὐτῇ καὶ κατελάβετο αὐτήν

30 καὶ ἔλαβεν τὸν στέφανον Μελχολ τοῦ βασιλέως αὐτῶν ἀπὸ τῆς κεφαλῆς αὐτοῦ καὶ ὁ σταθμὸς αὐτοῦ τάλαντον χρυσίου καὶ λίθου τιμίου καὶ ἦν ἐπὶ τῆς κεφαλῆς Δαυιδ καὶ σκῦλα τῆς πόλεως ἐξήνεγκεν πολλὰ σφόδρα

31 καὶ τὸν λαὸν τὸν ὄντα ἐν αὐτῇ ἐξήγαγεν καὶ ἔθηκεν ἐν τῷ πρίονι καὶ ἐν τοῖς τριβόλοις τοῖς σιδηροῖς καὶ διήγαγεν αὐτοὺς διὰ τοῦ πλινθείου καὶ οὕτως ἐποίησεν πάσαις ταῖς πόλεσιν υἱῶν Αμμων καὶ ἐπέστρεψεν Δαυιδ καὶ πᾶς ὁ λαὸς εἰς Ιερουσαλημ

1 Misit ergo Dominus Nathan ad David: qui cum venisset ad eum, dixit ei: Duo viri erant in civitate una, unus dives, et alter pauper.

2 Dives habebat oves et boves plurimos valde.

3 Pauper autem nihil habebat omnino, præter ovem unam parvulam quam emerat et nutrierat, et quæ creverat apud eum cum filiis ejus simul, de pane illius comedens, et de calice ejus bibens, et in sinu illius dormiens: eratque illi sicut filia.

4 Cum autem peregrinus quidam venisset ad divitem, parcens ille sumere de ovibus et de bobus suis, ut exhiberet convivium peregrino illi qui venerat ad se, tulit ovem viri pauperis, et præparavit cibos homini qui venerat ad se.

5 Iratus autem indignatione David adversus hominem illum nimis, dixit ad Nathan: Vivit Dominus, quoniam filius mortis est vir qui fecit hoc.

6 Ovem reddet in quadruplum, eo quod fecerit verbum istud, et non pepercerit.

7 Dixit autem Nathan ad David: Tu es ille vir. Hæc dicit Dominus Deus Israël: Ego unxi te in regem super Israël, et ego erui te de manu Saul,

8 et dedi tibi domum domini tui, et uxores domini tui in sinu tuo, dedique tibi domum Israël et Juda: et si parva sunt ista, adjiciam tibi multo majora.

9 Quare ergo contempsisti verbum Domini, ut faceres malum in conspectu meo? Uriam Hethæum percussisti gladio, et uxorem illius accepisti in uxorem tibi, et interfecisti eum gladio filiorum Ammon.

10 Quam ob rem non recedet gladius de domo tua usque in sempiternum, eo quod despexeris me, et tuleris uxorem Uriæ Hethæi ut esset uxor tua.

11 Itaque hæc dicit Dominus: Ecce ego suscitabo super te malum de domo tua, et tollam uxores tuas in oculis tuis, et dabo proximo tuo: et dormiet cum uxoribus tuis in oculis solis hujus.

12 Tu enim fecisti abscondite: ego autem faciam verbum istud in conspectu omnis Israël, et in conspectu solis.

13 Et dixit David ad Nathan: Peccavi Domino. Dixitque Nathan ad David: Dominus quoque transtulit peccatum tuum: non morieris.

14 Verumtamen quoniam blasphemare fecisti inimicos Domini, propter verbum hoc, filius qui natus est tibi, morte morietur.

15 Et reversus est Nathan in domum suam. Percussit quoque Dominus parvulum quem pepererat uxor Uriæ David, et desperatus est.

16 Deprecatusque est David Dominum pro parvulo: et jejunavit David jejunio, et ingressus seorsum, jacuit super terram.

17 Venerunt autem seniores domus ejus, cogentes eum ut surgeret de terra: qui noluit, nec comedit cum eis cibum.

18 Accidit autem die septima ut moreretur infans: timueruntque servi David nuntiare ei quod mortuus esset parvulus: dixerunt enim: Ecce cum parvulus adhuc viveret, loquebamur ad eum, et non audiebat vocem nostram: quanto magis si dixerimus: Mortuus est puer, se affliget?

19 Cum ergo David vidisset servos suos mussitantes, intellexit quod mortuus esset infantulus: dixitque ad servos suos: Num mortuus est puer? Qui responderunt ei: Mortuus est.

20 Surrexit ergo David de terra, et lotus unctusque est: cumque mutasset vestem, ingressus est domum Domini: et adoravit, et venit in domum suam, petivitque ut ponerent ei panem, et comedit.

21 Dixerunt autem ei servi sui: Quis est sermo quem fecisti? propter infantem, cum adhuc viveret, jejunasti et flebas: mortuo autem puero, surrexisti, et comedisti panem.

22 Qui ait: Propter infantem, dum adhuc viveret, jejunavi et flevi: dicebam enim: Quis scit si forte donet eum mihi Dominus, et vivat infans?

23 Nunc autem quia mortuus est, quare jejunem? numquid potero revocare eum amplius? ego vadam magis ad eum: ille vero non revertetur ad me.

24 Et consolatus est David Bethsabee uxorem suam, ingressusque ad eam dormivit cum ea: quæ genuit filium, et vocavit nomen ejus Salomon: et Dominus dilexit eum.

25 Misitque in manu Nathan prophetæ, et vocavit nomen ejus, Amabilis Domino, eo quod diligeret eum Dominus.

26 Igitur pugnabat Joab contra Rabbath filiorum Ammon, et expugnabat urbem regiam.

27 Misitque Joab nuntios ad David, dicens: Dimicavi adversum Rabbath, et capienda est Urbs aquarum.

28 Nunc igitur congrega reliquam partem populi, et obside civitatem, et cape eam: ne cum a me vastata fuerit urbs, nomini meo ascribatur victoria.

29 Congregavit itaque David omnem populum, et profectus est adversum Rabbath: cumque dimicasset, cepit eam.

30 Et tulit diadema regis eorum de capite ejus, pondo auri talentum, habens gemmas pretiosissimas: et impositum est super caput David. Sed et prædam civitatis asportavit multam valde:

31 populum quoque ejus adducens serravit, et circumegit super eos ferrata carpenta: divisitque cultris, et traduxit in typo laterum: sic fecit universis civitatibus filiorum Ammon. Et reversus est David et omnis exercitus in Jerusalem.
