2 Samuel 23


1  Now these428 be the last314 words1697 of David1732 the son1121 of Jesse3448 said,5002 1732 and the man1397 who was raised up6965 on high,5920 the anointed4899 of the God430 of Jacob,3290 and the sweet5273 psalmist2158 of Israel,3478 said,5002

2  The Spirit7307 of the LORD3068 spoke1696 by me, and his word4405 was in5921 my tongue.3956

3  The God430 of Israel3478 said,559 the Rock6697 of Israel3478 spoke1696 to me, He that ruleth over4910 men120 must be just,6662 ruling4910 in the fear3374 of God.430

4  And he shall be as the light216 of the morning,1242 when the sun8121 riseth,2224 even a morning1242 without3808 clouds;5645 as the tender grass1877 springing out of the earth4480 776 by clear shining4480 5051 after rain.4480 4306

5  Although3588 my house1004 be not3808 so3651 with5973 God;410 yet3588 he hath made7760 with me an everlasting5769 covenant,1285 ordered6186 in all3605 things, and sure:8104 for3588 this is all3605 my salvation,3468 and all3605 my desire,2656 although3588 he make it not3808 to grow.6779

6  But the sons of Belial1100 shall be all3605 of them as thorns6975 thrust away,5074 because3588 they cannot3808 be taken3947 with hands:3027

7  But the man376 that shall touch5060 them must be fenced4390 with iron1270 and the staff6086 of a spear;2595 and they shall be utterly burned8313 8313 with fire784 in the same place.7675

8  These428 be the names8034 of the mighty men1368 whom834 David1732 had: The Tachmonite8461 that sat3427 in the seat,7675 chief7218 among the captains;7991 the same1931 was Adino5722 the Eznite:6112 he lifted up his spear against5921 eight8083 hundred,3967 whom he slew2491 at one259 time.6471

9  And after310 him was Eleazar499 the son1121 of Dodo1734 the Ahohite,1121 266 one of the three7969 mighty men1368 with5973 David,1732 when they defied2778 the Philistines6430 that were there8033 gathered together622 to battle,4421 and the men376 of Israel3478 were gone away:5927

10  He1931 arose,6965 and smote5221 the Philistines6430 until5704 3588 his hand3027 was weary,3021 and his hand3027 cleaved1692 unto413 the sword:2719 and the LORD3068 wrought6213 a great1419 victory8668 that1931 day;3117 and the people5971 returned7725 after310 him only389 to spoil.6584

11  And after310 him was Shammah8048 the son1121 of Agee89 the Hararite.2043 And the Philistines6430 were gathered together622 into a troop,2416 where8033 was1961 a piece2513 of ground7704 full4392 of lentils:5742 and the people5971 fled5127 from4480 6440 the Philistines.6430

12  But he stood3320 in the midst8432 of the ground,2513 and defended5337 it, and slew5221 853 the Philistines:6430 and the LORD3068 wrought6213 a great1419 victory.8668

13  And three7969 of the thirty7970 chief7218 went down,3381 and came935 to413 David1732 in413 the harvest time7105 unto413 the cave4631 of Adullam:5725 and the troop2416 of the Philistines6430 pitched2583 in the valley6010 of Rephaim.7497

14  And David1732 was then227 in a hold,4686 and the garrison4673 of the Philistines6430 was then227 in Bethlehem.1035

15  And David1732 longed,183 and said,559 Oh that one4310 would give me drink8248 of the water4325 of the well4480 953 of Bethlehem,1035 which834 is by the gate!8179

16  And the three7969 mighty men1368 broke through1234 the host4264 of the Philistines,6430 and drew7579 water4325 out of the well4480 953 of Bethlehem,1035 that834 was by the gate,8179 and took5375 it, and brought935 it to413 David:1732 nevertheless he would14 not3808 drink8354 thereof, but poured it out5258 853 unto the LORD.3068

17  And he said,559 Be it far2486 from me, O LORD,3068 that I should do4480 6213 this:2063 is not this the blood1818 of the men376 that went1980 in jeopardy of their lives?5315 therefore he would14 not3808 drink8354 it. These428 things did6213 these three7969 mighty men.1368

18  And Abishai,52 the brother251 of Joab,3097 the son1121 of Zeruiah,6870 was chief7218 among three.7992 And he1931 lifted up5782 853 his spear2595 against5921 three7969 hundred,3967 and slew2491 them, and had the name8034 among three.7969

19  Was he not3588 most4480 honorable3513 of three?7969 therefore he was1961 their captain:8269 howbeit he attained935 not3808 unto5704 the first three.7969

20  And Benaiah1141 the son1121 of Jehoiada,3077 the son1121 of a valiant2428 man,376 of Kabzeel,4480 6909 who had done many acts,7227 6467 he1931 slew5221 853 two8147 lionlike men739 of Moab:4124 he1931 went down3381 also and slew5221 853 a lion738 in the midst8432 of a pit8432 953 in time3117 of snow:7950

21  And he1931 slew5221 853 an Egyptian,376 4713 a goodly4758 man:376 and the Egyptian4713 had a spear2595 in his hand;3027 but he went down3381 to413 him with a staff,7626 and plucked1497 853 the spear2595 out of the Egyptian's hand,4480 3027 4713 and slew5221 him with his own spear.2595

22  These428 things did6213 Benaiah1141 the son1121 of Jehoiada,3077 and had the name8034 among three7969 mighty men.1368

23  He was more honorable3513 than4480 the thirty,7970 but he attained935 not3808 to413 the first three.7969 And David1732 set7760 him over413 his guard.4928

1 καὶ οὗτοι οἱ λόγοι Δαυιδ οἱ ἔσχατοι πιστὸς Δαυιδ υἱὸς Ιεσσαι καὶ πιστὸς ἀνήρ ὃν ἀνέστησεν κύριος ἐπὶ χριστὸν θεοῦ Ιακωβ καὶ εὐπρεπεῖς ψαλμοὶ Ισραηλ

2 πνεῦμα κυρίου ἐλάλησεν ἐν ἐμοί καὶ ὁ λόγος αὐτοῦ ἐπὶ γλώσσης μου

3 λέγει ὁ θεὸς Ισραηλ ἐμοὶ ἐλάλησεν φύλαξ Ισραηλ παραβολὴν εἰπόν ἐν ἀνθρώπῳ πῶς κραταιώσητε φόβον θεοῦ

4 καὶ ἐν θεῷ φωτὶ πρωίας ἀνατείλαι ἥλιος τὸ πρωὶ οὐ παρῆλθεν ἐκ φέγγους καὶ ὡς ἐξ ὑετοῦ χλόης ἀπὸ γῆς

5 οὐ γὰρ οὕτως ὁ οἶκός μου μετὰ ἰσχυροῦ διαθήκην γὰρ αἰώνιον ἔθετό μοι ἑτοίμην ἐν παντὶ καιρῷ πεφυλαγμένην ὅτι πᾶσα σωτηρία μου καὶ πᾶν θέλημα ὅτι οὐ μὴ βλαστήσῃ ὁ παράνομος

6 ὥσπερ ἄκανθα ἐξωσμένη πάντες αὐτοί ὅτι οὐ χειρὶ λημφθήσονται

7 καὶ ἀνὴρ οὐ κοπιάσει ἐν αὐτοῖς καὶ πλῆρες σιδήρου καὶ ξύλον δόρατος καὶ ἐν πυρὶ καύσει καυθήσονται αἰσχύνῃ αὐτῶν

8 ταῦτα τὰ ὀνόματα τῶν δυνατῶν Δαυιδ Ιεβοσθε ὁ Χαναναῖος ἄρχων τοῦ τρίτου ἐστίν Αδινων ὁ Ασωναῖος οὗτος ἐσπάσατο τὴν ῥομφαίαν αὐτοῦ ἐπὶ ὀκτακοσίους τραυματίας εἰς ἅπαξ

9 καὶ μετ᾽ αὐτὸν Ελεαζαρ υἱὸς πατραδέλφου αὐτοῦ υἱὸς Σουσίτου ἐν τοῖς τρισὶν δυνατοῖς οὗτος ἦν μετὰ Δαυιδ ἐν Σερραν καὶ ἐν τῷ ὀνειδίσαι αὐτὸν ἐν τοῖς ἀλλοφύλοις συνήχθησαν ἐκεῖ εἰς πόλεμον καὶ ἀνέβησαν ἀνὴρ Ισραηλ

10 αὐτὸς ἀνέστη καὶ ἐπάταξεν ἐν τοῖς ἀλλοφύλοις ἕως οὗ ἐκοπίασεν ἡ χεὶρ αὐτοῦ καὶ προσεκολλήθη ἡ χεὶρ αὐτοῦ πρὸς τὴν μάχαιραν καὶ ἐποίησεν κύριος σωτηρίαν μεγάλην ἐν τῇ ἡμέρᾳ ἐκείνῃ καὶ ὁ λαὸς ἐκάθητο ὀπίσω αὐτοῦ πλὴν ἐκδιδύσκειν

11 καὶ μετ᾽ αὐτὸν Σαμαια υἱὸς Ασα ὁ Αρουχαῖος καὶ συνήχθησαν οἱ ἀλλόφυλοι εἰς Θηρία καὶ ἦν ἐκεῖ μερὶς τοῦ ἀγροῦ πλήρης φακοῦ καὶ ὁ λαὸς ἔφυγεν ἐκ προσώπου ἀλλοφύλων

12 καὶ ἐστηλώθη ἐν μέσῳ τῆς μερίδος καὶ ἐξείλατο αὐτὴν καὶ ἐπάταξεν τοὺς ἀλλοφύλους καὶ ἐποίησεν κύριος σωτηρίαν μεγάλην

13 καὶ κατέβησαν τρεῖς ἀπὸ τῶν τριάκοντα καὶ ἦλθον εἰς Κασων πρὸς Δαυιδ εἰς τὸ σπήλαιον Οδολλαμ καὶ τάγμα τῶν ἀλλοφύλων παρενέβαλον ἐν τῇ κοιλάδι Ραφαϊμ

14 καὶ Δαυιδ τότε ἐν τῇ περιοχῇ καὶ τὸ ὑπόστημα τῶν ἀλλοφύλων τότε ἐν Βαιθλεεμ

15 καὶ ἐπεθύμησεν Δαυιδ καὶ εἶπεν τίς ποτιεῖ με ὕδωρ ἐκ τοῦ λάκκου τοῦ ἐν Βαιθλεεμ τοῦ ἐν τῇ πύλῃ τὸ δὲ σύστημα τῶν ἀλλοφύλων τότε ἐν Βαιθλεεμ

16 καὶ διέρρηξαν οἱ τρεῖς δυνατοὶ ἐν τῇ παρεμβολῇ τῶν ἀλλοφύλων καὶ ὑδρεύσαντο ὕδωρ ἐκ τοῦ λάκκου τοῦ ἐν Βαιθλεεμ τοῦ ἐν τῇ πύλῃ καὶ ἔλαβαν καὶ παρεγένοντο πρὸς Δαυιδ καὶ οὐκ ἠθέλησεν πιεῖν αὐτὸ καὶ ἔσπεισεν αὐτὸ τῷ κυρίῳ

17 καὶ εἶπεν ἵλεώς μοι κύριε τοῦ ποιῆσαι τοῦτο εἰ αἷμα τῶν ἀνδρῶν τῶν πορευθέντων ἐν ταῖς ψυχαῖς αὐτῶν πίομαι καὶ οὐκ ἠθέλησεν πιεῖν αὐτό ταῦτα ἐποίησαν οἱ τρεῖς δυνατοί

18 καὶ Αβεσσα ἀδελφὸς Ιωαβ υἱὸς Σαρουιας αὐτὸς ἄρχων ἐν τοῖς τρισίν καὶ αὐτὸς ἐξήγειρεν τὸ δόρυ αὐτοῦ ἐπὶ τριακοσίους τραυματίας καὶ αὐτῷ ὄνομα ἐν τοῖς τρισίν

19 ἐκ τῶν τριῶν ἐκείνων ἔνδοξος καὶ ἐγένετο αὐτοῖς εἰς ἄρχοντα καὶ ἕως τῶν τριῶν οὐκ ἦλθεν

20 καὶ Βαναιας υἱὸς Ιωδαε ἀνὴρ αὐτὸς πολλοστὸς ἔργοις ἀπὸ Καβεσεηλ καὶ αὐτὸς ἐπάταξεν τοὺς δύο υἱοὺς Αριηλ τοῦ Μωαβ καὶ αὐτὸς κατέβη καὶ ἐπάταξε τὸν λέοντα ἐν μέσῳ τοῦ λάκκου ἐν τῇ ἡμέρᾳ τῆς χιόνος

21 αὐτὸς ἐπάταξεν τὸν ἄνδρα τὸν Αἰγύπτιον ἄνδρα ὁρατόν ἐν δὲ τῇ χειρὶ τοῦ Αἰγυπτίου δόρυ ὡς ξύλον διαβάθρας καὶ κατέβη πρὸς αὐτὸν ἐν ῥάβδῳ καὶ ἥρπασεν τὸ δόρυ ἐκ τῆς χειρὸς τοῦ Αἰγυπτίου καὶ ἀπέκτεινεν αὐτὸν ἐν τῷ δόρατι αὐτοῦ

22 ταῦτα ἐποίησεν Βαναιας υἱὸς Ιωδαε καὶ αὐτῷ ὄνομα ἐν τοῖς τρισὶν τοῖς δυνατοῖς

23 ἐκ τῶν τριῶν ἔνδοξος καὶ πρὸς τοὺς τρεῖς οὐκ ἦλθεν καὶ ἔταξεν αὐτὸν Δαυιδ εἰς τὰς ἀκοὰς αὐτοῦ

24 καὶ ταῦτα τὰ ὀνόματα τῶν δυνατῶν Δαυιδ βασιλέως Ασαηλ ἀδελφὸς Ιωαβ οὗτος ἐν τοῖς τριάκοντα Ελεαναν υἱὸς Δουδι πατραδέλφου αὐτοῦ ἐν Βαιθλεεμ

25 Σαμαι ὁ Αρουδαῖος Ελικα ὁ Αρωδαῖος

1 Hæc autem sunt verba David novissima. Dixit David filius Isai: [Dixit vir, cui constitutum est de christo Dei Jacob,
egregius psaltes Israël:

2 Spiritus Domini locutus est per me,
et sermo ejus per linguam meam.

3 Dixit Deus Israël mihi,
locutus est fortis Israël:
Dominator hominum,
justus dominator in timore Dei,

4 sicut lux auroræ, oriente sole,
mane absque nubibus rutilat:
et sicut pluviis germinat herba de terra.

5 Nec tanta est domus mea apud Deum,
ut pactum æternum iniret mecum,
firmum in omnibus atque munitum.
Cuncta enim salus mea, et omnis voluntas,
nec est quidquam ex ea quod non germinet.

6 Prævaricatores autem quasi spinæ evellentur universi,
quæ non tolluntur manibus.

7 Et si quis tangere voluerit eas,
armabitur ferro et ligno lanceato,
igneque succensæ comburentur usque ad nihilum.]

8 Hæc nomina fortium David. Sedens in cathedra sapientissimus princeps inter tres, ipse est quasi tenerrimus ligni vermiculus, qui octingentos interfecit impetu uno.

9 Post hunc, Eleazar filius patrui ejus Ahohites inter tres fortes, qui erant cum David quando exprobraverunt Philisthiim, et congregati sunt illuc in prælium.

10 Cumque ascendissent viri Israël, ipse stetit et percussit Philisthæos donec deficeret manus ejus, et obrigesceret cum gladio: fecitque Dominus salutem magnam in die illa: et populus qui fugerat, reversus est ad cæsorum spolia detrahenda.

11 Et post hunc, Semma filius Age de Arari. Et congregati sunt Philisthiim in statione: erat quippe ibi ager lente plenus. Cumque fugisset populus a facie Philisthiim,

12 stetit ille in medio agri, et tuitus est eum, percussitque Philisthæos: et fecit Dominus salutem magnam.

13 Necnon et ante descenderant tres qui erant principes inter triginta, et venerant tempore messis ad David in speluncam Odollam: castra autem Philisthinorum erant posita in Valle gigantum.

14 Et David erat in præsidio: porro statio Philisthinorum tunc erat in Bethlehem.

15 Desideravit ergo David, et ait: O si quis mihi daret potum aquæ de cisterna quæ est in Bethlehem juxta portam!

16 Irruperunt ergo tres fortes castra Philisthinorum, et hauserunt aquam de cisterna Bethlehem, quæ erat juxta portam, et attulerunt ad David: at ille noluit bibere, sed libavit eam Domino,

17 dicens: Propitius sit mihi Dominus, ne faciam hoc: num sanguinem hominum istorum qui profecti sunt, et animarum periculum bibam? Noluit ergo bibere. Hæc fecerunt tres robustissimi.

18 Abisai quoque frater Joab filius Sarviæ, princeps erat de tribus: ipse est qui levavit hastam suam contra trecentos, quos interfecit: nominatus in tribus,

19 et inter tres nobilior, eratque eorum princeps, sed usque ad tres primos non pervenerat.

20 Et Banaias filius Jojadæ viri fortissimi, magnorum operum, de Cabseel. Ipse percussit duos leones Moab, et ipse descendit, et percussit leonem in media cisterna in diebus nivis.

21 Ipse quoque interfecit virum ægyptium, virum dignum spectaculo, habentem in manu hastam: itaque cum descendisset ad eum in virga, vi extorsit hastam de manu Ægyptii, et interfecit eum hasta sua.

22 Hæc fecit Banaias filius Jojadæ.

23 Et ipse nominatus inter tres robustos, qui erant inter triginta nobiliores: verumtamen usque ad tres non pervenerat: fecitque eum sibi David auricularium, a secreto.

24 Asaël frater Joab inter triginta, Elehanan filius patrui ejus de Bethlehem,

25 Semma de Harodi, Elica de Harodi,

26 Heles de Phalti, Hira filius Acces de Thecua,
