وَٱجْتَمَعَ كُلُّ رِجَالِ إِسْرَائِيلَ إِلَى دَاوُدَ فِي حَبْرُونَ قَائِلِينَ: «هُوَذَا عَظْمُكَ وَلَحْمُكَ نَحْنُ.١1
Then all Israel gathered together to David at Hebron, saying, "Look, 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 times past, even when Saul was king, it was you who led out and brought in Israel. The LORD your God said to you, 'You shall be shepherd of my people Israel, and you shall rule over my people Israel.'"
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 elders of Israel came to the king to Hebron; and David made a covenant with them in Hebron before the LORD; and they anointed David king over Israel, according to the word of the LORD by Samuel.
وَذَهَبَ دَاوُدُ وَكُلُّ إِسْرَائِيلَ إِلَى أُورُشَلِيمَ، أَيْ يَبُوسَ. وَهُنَاكَ ٱلْيَبُوسِيُّونَ سُكَّانُ ٱلْأَرْضِ.٤4
David and all Israel went to Urishlem (that is, Jebus); and the Jebusites, the inhabitants of the land, were there.
وَقَالَ سُكَّانُ يَبُوسَ لِدَاوُدَ: «لَا تَدْخُلْ إِلَى هُنَا». فَأَخَذَ دَاوُدُ حِصْنَ صِهْيَوْنَ، هِيَ مَدِينَةُ دَاوُدَ.٥5
The inhabitants of Jebus said to David, "You shall not come in here." Nevertheless David took the stronghold of Zion, that is, the City of David.
وَقَالَ دَاوُدُ: «إِنَّ ٱلَّذِي يَضْرِبُ ٱلْيَبُوسِيِّينَ أَوَّلًا يَكُونُ رَأْسًا وَقَائِدًا». فَصَعِدَ أَوَّلًا يُوآبُ ٱبْنُ صَرُويَةَ، فَصَارَ رَأْسًا.٦6
David said, "Whoever strikes the Jebusites first shall be chief and captain." Joab the son of Zeruiah went up first, and was made chief.
وَأَقَامَ دَاوُدُ فِي ٱلْحِصْنِ، لِذَلِكَ دَعَوْهُ «مَدِينَةَ دَاوُدَ».٧7
David lived in the stronghold; therefore they called it the City of David.
وَبَنَى ٱلْمَدِينَةَ حَوَالَيْهَا مِنَ ٱلْقَلْعَةِ إِلَى مَا حَوْلِهَا. وَيُوآبُ جَدَّدَ سَائِرَ ٱلْمَدِينَةِ.٨8
He built the city all around, from the Millo even around; and Joab repaired the rest of the city.
وَكَانَ دَاوُدُ يَتَزَايَدُ مُتَعَظِّمًا وَرَبُّ ٱلْجُنُودِ مَعَهُ.٩9
David grew greater and greater; for the LORD of hosts 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 the warriors whom David had, who gave him strong support in his kingdom, together with all Israel, to make him king, according to the word of the LORD concerning 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 number of the warriors whom David had: Jeshbaal, the son of a Hachmonite, leader of the Three. And he wielded his spear against eight hundred and killed them at one time.
وَبَعْدَهُ أَلِعَازَارُ بْنُ دُودُو ٱلْأَخُوخِيُّ. هُوَ مِنَ ٱلْأَبْطَالِ ٱلثَّلَاثَةِ.١٢12
After him was Eleazar the son of Dodo, the Ahohite, who was one of the Three warriors.
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, and there the Philistines were gathered together to battle, where there was a plot of ground full of barley; and the people fled from before the Philistines.
وَوَقَفُوا فِي وَسَطِ ٱلْقِطْعَةِ وَأَنْقَذُوهَا، وَضَرَبُوا ٱلْفِلِسْطِينِيِّينَ. وَخَلَّصَ ٱلرَّبُّ خَلَاصًا عَظِيمًا.١٤14
And he took his stand in the midst of the plot, and defended it, and killed the Philistines; and the LORD saved them by a great victory.
وَنَزَلَ ثَلَاثَةٌ مِنَ ٱلثَّلَاثِينَ رَئِيسًا إِلَى ٱلصَّخْرِ إِلَى دَاوُدَ إِلَى مَغَارَةِ عَدُلَّامَ وَجَيْشُ ٱلْفِلِسْطِينِيِّينَ نَازِلٌ فِي وَادِي ٱلرَّفَائِيِّينَ.١٥15
And three of the Thirty chief men went down to the rock to David, into the cave of Adullam; and the army of the Philistines were camped in the Valley of Rephaim.
وَكَانَ دَاوُدُ حِينَئِذٍ فِي ٱلْحِصْنِ، وَحَفَظَةُ ٱلْفِلِسْطِينِيِّينَ حِينَئِذٍ فِي بَيْتِ لَحْمٍ.١٦16
David was then in the stronghold, and the garrison of the Philistines was then in Bethlehem.
فَتَأَوَّهَ دَاوُدُ وَقَالَ: «مَنْ يَسْقِينِي مَاءً مِنْ بِئْرِ بَيْتِ لَحْمٍ ٱلَّتِي عِنْدَ ٱلْبَابِ؟»١٧17
And David had a craving and said, "Oh that one would give me water to drink of the well of Bethlehem, which is by the gate."
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
The Three broke through the army of the Philistines, and drew water out of the well of Bethlehem, that was by the gate, and took it, and brought it to David: but David would not drink of it, but poured 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
and said, "My God forbid it me, that I should do this. Shall I drink the blood of these men who have put their lives in jeopardy?" For they risked their lives to bring it. Therefore he would not drink it. The Three warriors did these things.
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 leader of the Thirty. And he wielded his spear against three hundred and killed them, and had a name beside the Three.
مِنَ ٱلثَّلَاثَةِ أُكْرِمَ عَلَى ٱلِٱثْنَيْنِ وَكَانَ لَهُمَا رَئِيسًا، إِلَّا أَنَّهُ لَمْ يَصِلْ إِلَى ٱلثَّلَاثَةِ ٱلْأُوَلِ.٢١21
He was the most illustrious of the Thirty, and he became their leader. However, he did not attain to the 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 was a valiant man of Kabzeel, who performed great deeds. He killed the two of Ariel of Moab. He also went down and killed a lion in the midst of a pit 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
He killed an Egyptian, a man of great stature, seven feet five inches tall; and in the Egyptian's hand was a spear like a weaver's beam; and he went down to him with a staff, and grabbed the spear out of the Egyptian's hand, and killed him with his own spear.
هَذَا مَا فَعَلَهُ بَنَايَا بْنُ يَهُويَادَاعَ، فَكَانَ لَهُ ٱسْمٌ بَيْنَ ٱلثَّلَاثَةِ ٱلْأَبْطَالِ.٢٤24
Benaiah the son of Jehoiada did these things, and had a name among the Three warriors.
هُوَذَا أُكْرِمَ عَلَى ٱلثَّلَاثِينَ إِلَّا أَنَّهُ لَمْ يَصِلْ إِلَى ٱلثَّلَاثَةِ. فَجَعَلَهُ دَاوُدُ مِنْ أَصْحَابِ سِرِّهِ.٢٥25
Look, he was more honored than the Thirty, but he did not attain to the Three. And David set him over his guard.
وَأَبْطَالُ ٱلْجَيْشِ هُمْ: عَسَائِيلُ أَخُو يُوآبَ، وَأَلْحَانَانُ بْنُ دُودُوَ مِنْ بَيْتِ لَحْمٍ،٢٦26
