وَٱجْتَمَعَ كُلُّ رِجَالِ إِسْرَائِيلَ إِلَى دَاوُدَ فِي حَبْرُونَ قَائِلِينَ: «هُوَذَا عَظْمُكَ وَلَحْمُكَ نَحْنُ.١1
Then all Israel came together to David at Hebron, and said, Truly, we are your bone and your flesh.
وَمُنْذُ أَمْسِ وَمَا قَبْلَهُ حِينَ كَانَ شَاوُلُ مَلِكًا كُنْتَ أَنْتَ تُخْرِجُ وَتُدْخِلُ إِسْرَائِيلَ، وَقَدْ قَالَ لَكَ ٱلرَّبُّ إِلَهُكَ: أَنْتَ تَرْعَى شَعْبِي إِسْرَائِيلَ وَأَنْتَ تَكُونُ رَئِيسًا لِشَعْبِي إِسْرَائِيلَ».٢2
In the past, when Saul was king, it was you who went at the head of Israel when they went out or came in; and the Lord your God said to you, You are to be the keeper of my people Israel, and their ruler.
وَجَاءَ جَمِيعُ شُيُوخِ إِسْرَائِيلَ إِلَى ٱلْمَلِكِ إِلَى حَبْرُونَ، فَقَطَعَ دَاوُدُ مَعَهُمْ عَهْدًا فِي حَبْرُونَ أَمَامَ ٱلرَّبِّ، وَمَسَحُوا دَاوُدَ مَلِكًا عَلَى إِسْرَائِيلَ حَسَبَ كَلَامِ ٱلرَّبِّ عَنْ يَدِ صَمُوئِيلَ.٣3
So all the responsible men of Israel came to the king at Hebron; and David made an agreement with them in Hebron before the Lord; and they put the holy oil on David and made him king over Israel, as the Lord had said by Samuel.
وَذَهَبَ دَاوُدُ وَكُلُّ إِسْرَائِيلَ إِلَى أُورُشَلِيمَ، أَيْ يَبُوسَ. وَهُنَاكَ ٱلْيَبُوسِيُّونَ سُكَّانُ ٱلْأَرْضِ.٤4
Then David and all Israel went to Jerusalem (which is Jebus); and the Jebusites, the people of the land, were there.
وَقَالَ سُكَّانُ يَبُوسَ لِدَاوُدَ: «لَا تَدْخُلْ إِلَى هُنَا». فَأَخَذَ دَاوُدُ حِصْنَ صِهْيَوْنَ، هِيَ مَدِينَةُ دَاوُدَ.٥5
And the people of Jebus said to David, You will not come in here. But still, David took the strong place of Zion, which is the town of David.
وَقَالَ دَاوُدُ: «إِنَّ ٱلَّذِي يَضْرِبُ ٱلْيَبُوسِيِّينَ أَوَّلًا يَكُونُ رَأْسًا وَقَائِدًا». فَصَعِدَ أَوَّلًا يُوآبُ ٱبْنُ صَرُويَةَ، فَصَارَ رَأْسًا.٦6
And David said, The first to overcome the Jebusites will be chief and captain. And Joab, the son of Zeruiah, went up first, and became chief.
وَأَقَامَ دَاوُدُ فِي ٱلْحِصْنِ، لِذَلِكَ دَعَوْهُ «مَدِينَةَ دَاوُدَ».٧7
And David took the strong tower for his living-place, so it was named the town of David.
وَبَنَى ٱلْمَدِينَةَ حَوَالَيْهَا مِنَ ٱلْقَلْعَةِ إِلَى مَا حَوْلِهَا. وَيُوآبُ جَدَّدَ سَائِرَ ٱلْمَدِينَةِ.٨8
And he took in hand the building of the town all round, starting from the Millo; and Joab put the rest of the town in order.
وَكَانَ دَاوُدُ يَتَزَايَدُ مُتَعَظِّمًا وَرَبُّ ٱلْجُنُودِ مَعَهُ.٩9
And David became greater and greater in power, because the Lord of armies was with him.
وَهَؤُلَاءِ رُؤَسَاءُ ٱلْأَبْطَالِ ٱلَّذِينَ لِدَاوُدَ، ٱلَّذِينَ تَشَدَّدُوا مَعَهُ فِي مُلْكِهِ مَعَ كُلِّ إِسْرَائِيلَ لِتَمْلِيكِهِ حَسَبَ كَلَامِ ٱلرَّبِّ مِنْ جِهَةِ إِسْرَائِيلَ.١٠10
Now these are the chief of David's men of war who were his strong supporters in the kingdom, and, with all Israel, made him king, as the Lord had said about Israel.
وَهَذَا هُوَ عَدَدُ ٱلْأَبْطَالِ ٱلَّذِينَ لِدَاوُدَ: يَشُبْعَامُ بْنُ حَكْمُونِي رَئِيسُ ٱلثَّوَالِثِ. هُوَ هَزَّ رُمْحَهُ عَلَى ثَلَاثِ مِئَةٍ قَتَلَهُمْ دُفْعَةً وَاحِدَةً.١١11
This is the list of David's men of war: Ishbaal, the son of a Hachmonite, the chief of the three: he put to death three hundred at one time with his spear.
وَبَعْدَهُ أَلِعَازَارُ بْنُ دُودُو ٱلْأَخُوخِيُّ. هُوَ مِنَ ٱلْأَبْطَالِ ٱلثَّلَاثَةِ.١٢12
And after him was Eleazar, the son of Dodo the Ahohite, who was one of the three great fighters.
هُوَ كَانَ مَعَ دَاوُدَ فِي فَسَّ دَمِّيمَ وَقَدِ ٱجْتَمَعَ هُنَاكَ ٱلْفِلِسْطِينِيُّونَ لِلْحَرْبِ. وَكَانَتْ قِطْعَةُ ٱلْحَقْلِ مَمْلُوءَةً شَعِيرًا، فَهَرَبَ ٱلشَّعْبُ مِنْ أَمَامِ ٱلْفِلِسْطِينِيِّينَ.١٣13
He was with David at Pas-dammim, where the Philistines had come together for the fight, near a bit of land full of barley; and the people went in flight before the Philistines.
وَوَقَفُوا فِي وَسَطِ ٱلْقِطْعَةِ وَأَنْقَذُوهَا، وَضَرَبُوا ٱلْفِلِسْطِينِيِّينَ. وَخَلَّصَ ٱلرَّبُّ خَلَاصًا عَظِيمًا.١٤14
And he took up his position in the middle of the bit of land, and kept back their attack, and overcame the Philistines; and the Lord gave a great salvation.
وَنَزَلَ ثَلَاثَةٌ مِنَ ٱلثَّلَاثِينَ رَئِيسًا إِلَى ٱلصَّخْرِ إِلَى دَاوُدَ إِلَى مَغَارَةِ عَدُلَّامَ وَجَيْشُ ٱلْفِلِسْطِينِيِّينَ نَازِلٌ فِي وَادِي ٱلرَّفَائِيِّينَ.١٥15
And three of the thirty went down to David, to the rock, into the strong place of Adullam; and the army of the Philistines had taken up their position in the valley of Rephaim.
وَكَانَ دَاوُدُ حِينَئِذٍ فِي ٱلْحِصْنِ، وَحَفَظَةُ ٱلْفِلِسْطِينِيِّينَ حِينَئِذٍ فِي بَيْتِ لَحْمٍ.١٦16
At that time David had taken cover in the strong place, and an armed force of the Philistines was in Beth-lehem.
فَتَأَوَّهَ دَاوُدُ وَقَالَ: «مَنْ يَسْقِينِي مَاءً مِنْ بِئْرِ بَيْتِ لَحْمٍ ٱلَّتِي عِنْدَ ٱلْبَابِ؟»١٧17
And David, moved by a strong desire, said, If only someone would give me a drink of the water from the water-hole of Beth-lehem by the doorway into the town!
فَشَقَّ ٱلثَّلَاثَةُ مَحَلَّةَ ٱلْفِلِسْطِينِيِّينَ وَٱسْتَقَوْا مَاءً مِنْ بِئْرِ بَيْتِ لَحْمٍ ٱلَّتِي عِنْدَ ٱلْبَابِ، وَحَمَلُوهُ وَأَتَوْا بِهِ إِلَى دَاوُدَ، فَلَمْ يَشَأْ دَاوُدُ أَنْ يَشْرَبَهُ بَلْ سَكَبَهُ لِلرَّبِّ.١٨18
So the three, forcing a way through the Philistine army, got water from the water-hole of Beth-lehem, by the doorway into the town, and took it back to David; but David would not take it, but made an offering of it, draining it out to the Lord,
وَقَالَ: «حَاشَا لِي مِنْ قِبَلِ إِلَهِي أَنْ أَفْعَلَ ذَلِكَ! أَأَشْرَبُ دَمَ هَؤُلَاءِ ٱلرِّجَالِ بِأَنْفُسِهِمْ؟ لِأَنَّهُمْ إِنَّمَا أَتَوْا بِهِ بِأَنْفُسِهِمْ». وَلَمْ يَشَأْ أَنْ يَشْرَبَهُ. هَذَا مَا فَعَلَهُ ٱلْأَبْطَالُ ٱلثَّلَاثَةُ.١٩19
Saying, By my God, far be it from me to do this! How may I take as drink the life-blood of these men who have put their lives in danger? so he did not take it. These things did the three great men of war.
وَأَبِشَايُ أَخُو يُوآبَ كَانَ رَئِيسَ ثَلَاثَةٍ. وَهُوَ قَدْ هَزَّ رُمْحَهُ عَلَى ثَلَاثِ مِئَةٍ فَقَتَلَهُمْ، فَكَانَ لَهُ ٱسْمٌ بَيْنَ ٱلثَّلَاثَةِ.٢٠20
And Abishai, the brother of Joab, was chief of the thirty, for he put to death three hundred with his spear, but he had not a name among the three.
مِنَ ٱلثَّلَاثَةِ أُكْرِمَ عَلَى ٱلِٱثْنَيْنِ وَكَانَ لَهُمَا رَئِيسًا، إِلَّا أَنَّهُ لَمْ يَصِلْ إِلَى ٱلثَّلَاثَةِ ٱلْأُوَلِ.٢١21
Of the thirty, he was the noblest, and was made their captain, but he was not equal to the first three.
بَنَايَا بْنُ يَهُويَادَاعَ ٱبْنِ ذِي بَأْسٍ كَثِيرِ ٱلْأَفْعَالِ مِنْ قَبْصِيئِيلَ. هُوَ ٱلَّذِي ضَرَبَ أَسَدَيْ مُوآبَ، وَهُوَ ٱلَّذِي نَزَلَ وَضَرَبَ أَسَدًا فِي وَسَطِ جُبٍّ يَوْمَ ٱلثَّلْجِ.٢٢22
Benaiah, the son of Jehoiada, a fighting-man of Kabzeel, had done great acts; he put to death two young lions going into their secret place; and he went down into a hole and put a lion to death in time of snow.
وَهُوَ ضَرَبَ ٱلرَّجُلَ ٱلْمِصْرِيَّ ٱلَّذِي قَامَتُهُ خَمْسُ أَذْرُعٍ، وَفِي يَدِ ٱلْمِصْرِيِّ رُمْحٌ كَنَوْلِ ٱلنَّسَّاجِينَ. فَنَزَلَ إِلَيْهِ بِعَصًا وَخَطَفَ ٱلرُّمْحَ مِنْ يَدِ ٱلْمِصْرِيِّ وَقَتَلَهُ بِرُمْحِهِ.٢٣23
And he made an attack on an Egyptian, a very tall man about five cubits high, armed with a spear like a cloth-worker's rod; he went down to him with a stick, and pulling his spear out of the hand of the Egyptian, put him to death with that same spear.
هَذَا مَا فَعَلَهُ بَنَايَا بْنُ يَهُويَادَاعَ، فَكَانَ لَهُ ٱسْمٌ بَيْنَ ٱلثَّلَاثَةِ ٱلْأَبْطَالِ.٢٤24
These were the acts of Benaiah, the son of Jehoiada, who had a great name among the thirty men of war.
هُوَذَا أُكْرِمَ عَلَى ٱلثَّلَاثِينَ إِلَّا أَنَّهُ لَمْ يَصِلْ إِلَى ٱلثَّلَاثَةِ. فَجَعَلَهُ دَاوُدُ مِنْ أَصْحَابِ سِرِّهِ.٢٥25
He was honoured over the thirty, but he was not equal to the first three: and David put him over his servants.
وَأَبْطَالُ ٱلْجَيْشِ هُمْ: عَسَائِيلُ أَخُو يُوآبَ، وَأَلْحَانَانُ بْنُ دُودُوَ مِنْ بَيْتِ لَحْمٍ،٢٦26
