وَٱجْتَمَعَ كُلُّ رِجَالِ إِسْرَائِيلَ إِلَى دَاوُدَ فِي حَبْرُونَ قَائِلِينَ: «هُوَذَا عَظْمُكَ وَلَحْمُكَ نَحْنُ.١1
And all Israel came to David in Chebron, saying, Behold, we [are] your bones 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
And heretofore when Saul was king, you were he that led Israel in and out, and the Lord of Israel said to you, You shall feed my people Israel, and you shall be for a ruler over 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
And all the elders of Israel came to the king to Chebron; and king David made a covenant with them in Chebron before the Lord: and they anointed David to be 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
And the king and his men went to Jerusalem, this [is] Jebus; and there the Jebusites the inhabitants of the land said to David,
وَقَالَ سُكَّانُ يَبُوسَ لِدَاوُدَ: «لَا تَدْخُلْ إِلَى هُنَا». فَأَخَذَ دَاوُدُ حِصْنَ صِهْيَوْنَ، هِيَ مَدِينَةُ دَاوُدَ.٥5
You shall not enter in hither. But he took the strong hold of Sion: this [is] the city of David.
وَقَالَ دَاوُدُ: «إِنَّ ٱلَّذِي يَضْرِبُ ٱلْيَبُوسِيِّينَ أَوَّلًا يَكُونُ رَأْسًا وَقَائِدًا». فَصَعِدَ أَوَّلًا يُوآبُ ٱبْنُ صَرُويَةَ، فَصَارَ رَأْسًا.٦6
And David said, Whoever first smites the Jebusite, even he shall be chief and captain. And Joab the son of Saruia went up first, and became chief.
وَأَقَامَ دَاوُدُ فِي ٱلْحِصْنِ، لِذَلِكَ دَعَوْهُ «مَدِينَةَ دَاوُدَ».٧7
And David lived in the strong hold; therefore he called it the city of David.
وَبَنَى ٱلْمَدِينَةَ حَوَالَيْهَا مِنَ ٱلْقَلْعَةِ إِلَى مَا حَوْلِهَا. وَيُوآبُ جَدَّدَ سَائِرَ ٱلْمَدِينَةِ.٨8
And he fortified the city round about.
وَكَانَ دَاوُدُ يَتَزَايَدُ مُتَعَظِّمًا وَرَبُّ ٱلْجُنُودِ مَعَهُ.٩9
And David continued to increase, and the Lord Almighty [was] with him.
وَهَؤُلَاءِ رُؤَسَاءُ ٱلْأَبْطَالِ ٱلَّذِينَ لِدَاوُدَ، ٱلَّذِينَ تَشَدَّدُوا مَعَهُ فِي مُلْكِهِ مَعَ كُلِّ إِسْرَائِيلَ لِتَمْلِيكِهِ حَسَبَ كَلَامِ ٱلرَّبِّ مِنْ جِهَةِ إِسْرَائِيلَ.١٠10
And these [are] the chiefs of the mighty men, whom David had, who strengthened [themselves] with him in his kingdom, 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
And this [is] the list of the mighty [men] of David; Jesebada, son of Achaman, first of the thirty: he drew his sword once against three hundred whom he killed at one time.
وَبَعْدَهُ أَلِعَازَارُ بْنُ دُودُو ٱلْأَخُوخِيُّ. هُوَ مِنَ ٱلْأَبْطَالِ ٱلثَّلَاثَةِ.١٢12
And after him Eleazar son of Dodai, the Achochite: he was among the three mighty men.
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 in Phasodamin, and the Philistines were gathered there to battle, and [there was] a portion of the field full of barley; and the people fled before the Philistines.
وَوَقَفُوا فِي وَسَطِ ٱلْقِطْعَةِ وَأَنْقَذُوهَا، وَضَرَبُوا ٱلْفِلِسْطِينِيِّينَ. وَخَلَّصَ ٱلرَّبُّ خَلَاصًا عَظِيمًا.١٤14
And he stood in the midst of the portion, and rescued it, and struck the Philistines; and the Lord wrought a great deliverance.
وَنَزَلَ ثَلَاثَةٌ مِنَ ٱلثَّلَاثِينَ رَئِيسًا إِلَى ٱلصَّخْرِ إِلَى دَاوُدَ إِلَى مَغَارَةِ عَدُلَّامَ وَجَيْشُ ٱلْفِلِسْطِينِيِّينَ نَازِلٌ فِي وَادِي ٱلرَّفَائِيِّينَ.١٥15
And three of the thirty chiefs went down to the rock to David, to the cave of Odollam, and the camp of the Philistines [was] in the giants' valley.
وَكَانَ دَاوُدُ حِينَئِذٍ فِي ٱلْحِصْنِ، وَحَفَظَةُ ٱلْفِلِسْطِينِيِّينَ حِينَئِذٍ فِي بَيْتِ لَحْمٍ.١٦16
And David [was] then in the hold, and the garrison of the Philistines [was] then in Bethleem.
فَتَأَوَّهَ دَاوُدُ وَقَالَ: «مَنْ يَسْقِينِي مَاءً مِنْ بِئْرِ بَيْتِ لَحْمٍ ٱلَّتِي عِنْدَ ٱلْبَابِ؟»١٧17
And David longed, and said, Who will give me water to drink of the well of Bethleem, that is in 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
And the three broke through the camp of the Philistines, and they drew water out of the well that was in Bethleem, which was in the gate, and they took it, and came to David: but David would not drink it, and poured it out to the Lord, and said,
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
God forbid that I should do this thing: shall I drink the blood of these men with their lives? for with [the peril of] their lives they brought it. So he would not drink it. These things did the three mighty [men].
وَأَبِشَايُ أَخُو يُوآبَ كَانَ رَئِيسَ ثَلَاثَةٍ. وَهُوَ قَدْ هَزَّ رُمْحَهُ عَلَى ثَلَاثِ مِئَةٍ فَقَتَلَهُمْ، فَكَانَ لَهُ ٱسْمٌ بَيْنَ ٱلثَّلَاثَةِ.٢٠20
And Abisa the brother of Joab, he was chief of three: he drew his sword against three hundred slain at one time, and he had a name among the [second] three.
مِنَ ٱلثَّلَاثَةِ أُكْرِمَ عَلَى ٱلِٱثْنَيْنِ وَكَانَ لَهُمَا رَئِيسًا، إِلَّا أَنَّهُ لَمْ يَصِلْ إِلَى ٱلثَّلَاثَةِ ٱلْأُوَلِ.٢١21
He was more famous than the two [others] of the three, and he was chief [over] them; yet he reached not 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
And Banaia the son of Jodae was the son of a mighty man: many [were] his acts for Cabasael: he struck two lion-like men of Moab, and he went down and struck a lion in a pit on a snowy day.
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 struck an Egyptian, a wonderful man five cubits [high]; and in the hand of the Egyptian [there was] a spear like a weavers' beam; and Banaia went down to him with a staff, and took 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
These things did Banaia son of Jodae, and his name [was] among the three mighties.
هُوَذَا أُكْرِمَ عَلَى ٱلثَّلَاثِينَ إِلَّا أَنَّهُ لَمْ يَصِلْ إِلَى ٱلثَّلَاثَةِ. فَجَعَلَهُ دَاوُدُ مِنْ أَصْحَابِ سِرِّهِ.٢٥25
He was distinguished beyond the thirty, yet he reached not to the [first] three: and David set him over his family.
وَأَبْطَالُ ٱلْجَيْشِ هُمْ: عَسَائِيلُ أَخُو يُوآبَ، وَأَلْحَانَانُ بْنُ دُودُوَ مِنْ بَيْتِ لَحْمٍ،٢٦26
