١ أخبار 10

وَحَارَبَ ٱلْفِلِسْطِينِيُّونَ إِسْرَائِيلَ، فَهَرَبَ رِجَالُ إِسْرَائِيلَ مِنْ أَمَامِ ٱلْفِلِسْطِينِيِّينَ وَسَقَطُوا قَتْلَى فِي جَبَلِ جِلْبُوعَ. ١ 1
Now the Philistines fought against Israel. Every man of Israel fled from before the Philistines and fell down dead on Mount Gilboa.
وَشَدَّ ٱلْفِلِسْطِينِيُّونَ وَرَاءَ شَاوُلَ وَوَرَاءَ بَنِيهِ، وَضَرَبَ ٱلْفِلِسْطِينِيُّونَ يُونَاثَانَ وَأَبِينَادَابَ وَمَلْكِيشُوعَ أَبْنَاءَ شَاوُلَ. ٢ 2
The Philistines closely pursued Saul and his son. The Philistines killed Jonathan, Abinadab, and Malki-Shua, his sons.
وَٱشْتَدَّتِ ٱلْحَرْبُ عَلَى شَاوُلَ فَأَصَابَتْهُ رُمَاةُ ٱلْقِسِيِّ، فَٱنْجَرَحَ مِنَ ٱلرُّمَاةِ. ٣ 3
The battle went heavily against Saul, and the archers overtook him, and they wounded him.
فَقَالَ شَاوُلُ لِحَامِلِ سِلَاحِهِ: «ٱسْتَلَّ سَيْفَكَ وَٱطْعَنِّي بِهِ لِئَلَّا يَأْتِيَ هَؤُلَاءِ ٱلْغُلْفُ وَيُقَبِّحُونِي». فَلَمْ يَشَأْ حَامِلُ سِلَاحِهِ لِأَنَّهُ خَافَ جِدًّا. فَأَخَذَ شَاوُلُ ٱلسَّيْفَ وَسَقَطَ عَلَيْهِ. ٤ 4
Then said Saul to his armor bearer, “Draw your sword and thrust me through with it. Otherwise, these uncircumcised will come and abuse me.” But his armor bearer would not, for he was very afraid. So Saul took his own sword and fell on it.
فَلَمَّا رَأَى حَامِلُ سِلَاحِهِ أَنَّهُ قَدْ مَاتَ شَاوُلُ، سَقَطَ هُوَ أَيْضًا عَلَى ٱلسَّيْفِ وَمَاتَ. ٥ 5
When his armor bearer saw that Saul was dead, he likewise fell on his sword and died.
فَمَاتَ شَاوُلُ وَبَنُوهُ ٱلثَّلَاثَةُ وَكُلُّ بَيْتِهِ، مَاتُوا مَعًا. ٦ 6
So Saul died, and his three sons, so all his household members died together.
وَلَمَّا رَأَى جَمِيعُ رِجَالِ إِسْرَائِيلَ ٱلَّذِينَ فِي ٱلْوَادِي أَنَّهُمْ قَدْ هَرَبُوا، وَأَنَّ شَاوُلَ وَبَنِيهِ قَدْ مَاتُوا، تَرَكُوا مُدُنَهُمْ وَهَرَبُوا، فَأَتَى ٱلْفِلِسْطِينِيُّونَ وَسَكَنُوا بِهَا. ٧ 7
When every man of Israel in the valley saw that they had fled, and that Saul and his sons were dead, they abandoned their cities and fled. Then the Philistines came and lived in them.
وَفِي ٱلْغَدِ لَمَّا جَاءَ ٱلْفِلِسْطِينِيُّونَ لِيُعَرُّوا ٱلْقَتْلَى، وَجَدُوا شَاوُلَ وَبَنِيهِ سَاقِطِينَ فِي جَبَلِ جِلْبُوعَ، ٨ 8
It came about on the next day, when the Philistines came to strip the dead, that they found Saul and his sons fallen on Mount Gilboa.
فَعَرَّوْهُ وَأَخَذُوا رَأْسَهُ وَسِلَاحَهُ، وَأَرْسَلُوا إِلَى أَرْضِ ٱلْفِلِسْطِينِيِّينَ فِي كُلِّ نَاحِيَةٍ لِأَجْلِ تَبْشِيرِ أَصْنَامِهِمْ وَٱلشَّعْبِ. ٩ 9
They stripped him and took his head and his armor. They sent messengers throughout Philistia to carry the news to their idols and to the people.
وَوَضَعُوا سِلَاحَهُ فِي بَيْتِ آلِهَتِهِمْ، وَسَمَّرُوا رَأْسَهُ فِي بَيْتِ دَاجُونَ. ١٠ 10
They put his armor in the temple of their gods, and fastened his head to the temple of Dagon.
وَلَمَّا سَمِعَ كُلُّ يَابِيشِ جِلْعَادَ بِكُلِّ مَا فَعَلَ ٱلْفِلِسْطِينِيُّونَ بِشَاوُلَ، ١١ 11
When all Jabesh Gilead heard of all that the Philistines had done to Saul,
قَامَ كُلُّ ذِي بَأْسٍ وَأَخَذُوا جُثَّةَ شَاوُلَ وَجُثَثَ بَنِيهِ وَجَاءُوا بِهَا إِلَى يَابِيشَ، وَدَفَنُوا عِظَامَهُمْ تَحْتَ ٱلْبُطْمَةِ فِي يَابِيشَ، وَصَامُوا سَبْعَةَ أَيَّامٍ. ١٢ 12
all the fighting men went and took away the body of Saul and those of his sons, and brought them to Jabesh. They buried their bones under the oak in Jabesh and fasted seven days.
فَمَاتَ شَاوُلُ بِخِيَانَتِهِ ٱلَّتِي بِهَا خَانَ ٱلرَّبَّ مِنْ أَجْلِ كَلَامِ ٱلرَّبِّ ٱلَّذِي لَمْ يَحْفَظْهُ. وَأَيْضًا لِأَجْلِ طَلَبِهِ إِلَى ٱلْجَانِّ لِلسُّؤَالِ، ١٣ 13
So Saul died because he was unfaithful to Yahweh. He did not obey Yahweh's instructions, but asked for advice from someone who talked with the dead.
وَلَمْ يَسْأَلْ مِنَ ٱلرَّبِّ، فَأَمَاتَهُ وَحَوَّلَ ٱلْمَمْلَكَةَ إِلَى دَاوُدَ بْنِ يَسَّى. ١٤ 14
He did not seek guidance from Yahweh, so Yahweh killed him and turned over the kingdom to David son of Jesse.
