١ أخبار 11

وَٱجْتَمَعَ كُلُّ رِجَالِ إِسْرَائِيلَ إِلَى دَاوُدَ فِي حَبْرُونَ قَائِلِينَ: «هُوَذَا عَظْمُكَ وَلَحْمُكَ نَحْنُ. ١ 1
Then all Israel came to David at Hebron and said, “Look, we are your flesh and bone.
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». ٢ 2
In the recent past, when Saul was king over us, it was you who led the Israelite army. Yahweh your God said to you, 'You will shepherd my people Israel, and you will become a ruler 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. ٣ 3
So all the elders of Israel came to the king at Hebron, and David made a covenant with them before Yahweh. They anointed David king over Israel. In this way, the word of Yahweh that had been declared by Samuel came true.
وَذَهَبَ دَاوُدُ وَكُلُّ إِسْرَائِيلَ إِلَى أُورُشَلِيمَ، أَيْ يَبُوسَ. وَهُنَاكَ ٱلْيَبُوسِيُّونَ سُكَّانُ ٱلْأَرْضِ. ٤ 4
David and all Israel went to Jerusalem (that is, Jebus). Now the Jebusites, the inhabitants of the land, were there.
وَقَالَ سُكَّانُ يَبُوسَ لِدَاوُدَ: «لَا تَدْخُلْ إِلَى هُنَا». فَأَخَذَ دَاوُدُ حِصْنَ صِهْيَوْنَ، هِيَ مَدِينَةُ دَاوُدَ. ٥ 5
The inhabitants of Jebus said to David, “You will not come in here.” But 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. ٦ 6
David had said, “Whoever attacks the Jebusites first will become chief and commander.” So Joab son of Zeruiah attacked first, so he was made the chief.
وَأَقَامَ دَاوُدُ فِي ٱلْحِصْنِ، لِذَلِكَ دَعَوْهُ «مَدِينَةَ دَاوُدَ». ٧ 7
Then David began to live in the stronghold. So they called it the city of David.
وَبَنَى ٱلْمَدِينَةَ حَوَالَيْهَا مِنَ ٱلْقَلْعَةِ إِلَى مَا حَوْلِهَا. وَيُوآبُ جَدَّدَ سَائِرَ ٱلْمَدِينَةِ. ٨ 8
He built the city all around from the Millo and back to the surrounding wall. Joab restored the rest of the city.
وَكَانَ دَاوُدُ يَتَزَايَدُ مُتَعَظِّمًا وَرَبُّ ٱلْجُنُودِ مَعَهُ. ٩ 9
David became greater and greater because Yahweh 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. ١٠ 10
These were the leaders David had, who showed themselves strong with him in his kingdom, together with all Israel, to make him king, obeying the word of Yahweh concerning Israel.
وَهَذَا هُوَ عَدَدُ ٱلْأَبْطَالِ ٱلَّذِينَ لِدَاوُدَ: يَشُبْعَامُ بْنُ حَكْمُونِي رَئِيسُ ٱلثَّوَالِثِ. هُوَ هَزَّ رُمْحَهُ عَلَى ثَلَاثِ مِئَةٍ قَتَلَهُمْ دُفْعَةً وَاحِدَةً. ١١ 11
This is a list of David's mighty men: Jashobeam, the son of a Hachmonite, was commander of the officers. He killed three hundred men with his spear on one occasion.
وَبَعْدَهُ أَلِعَازَارُ بْنُ دُودُو ٱلْأَخُوخِيُّ. هُوَ مِنَ ٱلْأَبْطَالِ ٱلثَّلَاثَةِ. ١٢ 12
After him was Eleazar son of Dodo, the Ahohite, who was one of 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. ١٣ 13
He was with David at Pas Dammim, and there the Philistines assembled together for battle, where there was a barley field and the army fled from the Philistines.
وَوَقَفُوا فِي وَسَطِ ٱلْقِطْعَةِ وَأَنْقَذُوهَا، وَضَرَبُوا ٱلْفِلِسْطِينِيِّينَ. وَخَلَّصَ ٱلرَّبُّ خَلَاصًا عَظِيمًا. ١٤ 14
They stood in the middle of the field. They defended it and cut down the Philistines and Yahweh rescued them with a great victory.
وَنَزَلَ ثَلَاثَةٌ مِنَ ٱلثَّلَاثِينَ رَئِيسًا إِلَى ٱلصَّخْرِ إِلَى دَاوُدَ إِلَى مَغَارَةِ عَدُلَّامَ وَجَيْشُ ٱلْفِلِسْطِينِيِّينَ نَازِلٌ فِي وَادِي ٱلرَّفَائِيِّينَ. ١٥ 15
Then three of the thirty leaders went down to the rock to David, to the cave of Adullam. The army of the Philistines was camped in the Valley of Rephaim.
وَكَانَ دَاوُدُ حِينَئِذٍ فِي ٱلْحِصْنِ، وَحَفَظَةُ ٱلْفِلِسْطِينِيِّينَ حِينَئِذٍ فِي بَيْتِ لَحْمٍ. ١٦ 16
At that time David was in his stronghold, a cave, while the Philistines had established their camp at Bethlehem.
فَتَأَوَّهَ دَاوُدُ وَقَالَ: «مَنْ يَسْقِينِي مَاءً مِنْ بِئْرِ بَيْتِ لَحْمٍ ٱلَّتِي عِنْدَ ٱلْبَابِ؟» ١٧ 17
David was longing for water and said, “If only someone would give me water to drink from the well at Bethlehem, the well that 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. ١٨ 18
So these three mighty men broke through the army of the Philistines and drew water out of the well of Bethlehem, the well at the gate. They took the water and brought it to David, but he refused to drink it. Instead, he poured it out to Yahweh.
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. ١٩ 19
Then he said, “May it be that I should never do this! Should I drink the blood of these men who have risked their lives?” Because they had put their lives at risk, David refused to drink it. These were the deeds of the three mighty men.
وَأَبِشَايُ أَخُو يُوآبَ كَانَ رَئِيسَ ثَلَاثَةٍ. وَهُوَ قَدْ هَزَّ رُمْحَهُ عَلَى ثَلَاثِ مِئَةٍ فَقَتَلَهُمْ، فَكَانَ لَهُ ٱسْمٌ بَيْنَ ٱلثَّلَاثَةِ. ٢٠ 20
Abishai brother of Joab was captain over the Three. He once used his spear against three hundred and killed them. He is mentioned along with the Three.
مِنَ ٱلثَّلَاثَةِ أُكْرِمَ عَلَى ٱلِٱثْنَيْنِ وَكَانَ لَهُمَا رَئِيسًا، إِلَّا أَنَّهُ لَمْ يَصِلْ إِلَى ٱلثَّلَاثَةِ ٱلْأُوَلِ. ٢١ 21
Of the Three, he was given double honor and became their captain, even though he was not one of them.
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. ٢٢ 22
Benaiah son of Jehoiada was a brave warrior from Kabzeel, who did great deeds. He killed the two sons of Ariel of Moab. He also went down into a pit and killed a lion on a day when the snow was falling.
وَهُوَ ضَرَبَ ٱلرَّجُلَ ٱلْمِصْرِيَّ ٱلَّذِي قَامَتُهُ خَمْسُ أَذْرُعٍ، وَفِي يَدِ ٱلْمِصْرِيِّ رُمْحٌ كَنَوْلِ ٱلنَّسَّاجِينَ. فَنَزَلَ إِلَيْهِ بِعَصًا وَخَطَفَ ٱلرُّمْحَ مِنْ يَدِ ٱلْمِصْرِيِّ وَقَتَلَهُ بِرُمْحِهِ. ٢٣ 23
He even killed an Egyptian, a man five cubits tall. The Egyptian had a spear like a weaver's beam, but he went down to him with only a staff. He seized 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. ٢٤ 24
Benaiah son of Jehoiada did these feats, and he was named alongside the three mighty men.
هُوَذَا أُكْرِمَ عَلَى ٱلثَّلَاثِينَ إِلَّا أَنَّهُ لَمْ يَصِلْ إِلَى ٱلثَّلَاثَةِ. فَجَعَلَهُ دَاوُدُ مِنْ أَصْحَابِ سِرِّهِ. ٢٥ 25
He was more highly regarded than the thirty soldiers in general, but he was not regarded quite as highly as the three mighty men. Yet David put him in charge of his bodyguard.
وَأَبْطَالُ ٱلْجَيْشِ هُمْ: عَسَائِيلُ أَخُو يُوآبَ، وَأَلْحَانَانُ بْنُ دُودُوَ مِنْ بَيْتِ لَحْمٍ، ٢٦ 26
