وَكَانَ عِنْدَ تَمَامِ ٱلسَّنَةِ فِي وَقْتِ خُرُوجِ ٱلْمُلُوكِ، ٱقْتَادَ يُوآبُ قُوَّةَ ٱلْجَيْشِ وَأَخْرَبَ أَرْضَ بَنِي عَمُّونَ وَأَتَى وَحَاصَرَ رَبَّةَ. وَكَانَ دَاوُدُ مُقِيمًا فِي أُورُشَلِيمَ. فَضَرَبَ يُوآبُ رَبَّةَ وَهَدَمَهَا.١1
And it came to pass at the return of the year, at the [time of the] going forth of kings [to war], that Joab gathered the whole force of the army, and they ravaged the land of the children of Ammon; and he came and besieged Rabba. But David abode in Jerusalem. And Joab smote Rabba and destroyed it.
وَأَخَذَ دَاوُدُ تَاجَ مَلِكِهِمْ عَنْ رَأْسِهِ، فَوُجِدَ وَزْنُهُ وَزْنَةً مِنَ ٱلذَّهَبِ، وَفِيهِ حَجَرٌ كَرِيمٌ. فَكَانَ عَلَى رَأْسِ دَاوُدَ. وَأَخْرَجَ غَنِيمَةَ ٱلْمَدِينَةِ وَكَانَتْ كَثِيرَةً جِدًّا.٢2
And David took the crown of Molchom their king off his head, and the weight of it was found [to be] a talent of gold, and on it were precious stones; and it was [placed] on the head of David: and he brought out the spoils of the city [which were] very great.
وَأَخْرَجَ ٱلشَّعْبَ ٱلَّذِينَ بِهَا وَنَشَرَهُمْ بِمَنَاشِيرِ وَنَوَارِجِ حَدِيدٍ وَفُؤُوسٍ. وَهَكَذَا صَنَعَ دَاوُدُ لِكُلِّ مُدُنِ بَنِي عَمُّونَ. ثُمَّ رَجَعَ دَاوُدُ وَكُلُّ ٱلشَّعْبِ إِلَى أُورُشَلِيمَ.٣3
And he brought out the people that were in it, and sawed them asunder with saws, and [cut them] with iron axes, and with harrows: and thus David did to all the children of Ammon. And David and all his people returned to Jerusalem.
ثُمَّ بَعْدَ ذَلِكَ قَامَتْ حَرْبٌ فِي جَازِرَ مَعَ ٱلْفِلِسْطِينِيِّينَ. حِينَئِذٍ سَبْكَايُ ٱلْحُوشِيُّ قَتَلَ سَفَّايَ مِنْ أَوْلَادِ رَافَا فَذَلُّوا.٤4
And it came to pass afterward that there was again war with the Philistines in Gazer: then Sobochai the Sosathite smote Saphut of the sons of the giants, and laid him low.
وَكَانَتْ أَيْضًا حَرْبٌ مَعَ ٱلْفِلِسْطِينِيِّينَ، فَقَتَلَ أَلْحَانَانُ بْنُ يَاعُورَ لَحْمِيَ أَخَا جُلْيَاتَ ٱلْجَتِّيِّ. وَكَانَتْ قَنَاةُ رُمْحِهِ كَنَوْلِ ٱلنَّسَّاجِينَ.٥5
And there [was] war again with the Philistines; and Eleanan the son of Jair smote Lachmi the brother of Goliath the Gittite, and the wood of his spear [was] as a weavers' beam.
ثُمَّ كَانَتْ أَيْضًا حَرْبٌ فِي جَتَّ، وَكَانَ رَجُلٌ طَوِيلُ ٱلْقَامَةِ أَعْنَشُ، أَصَابِعُهُ أَرْبَعٌ وَعِشْرُونَ، وَهُوَ أَيْضًا وُلِدَ لِرَافَا.٦6
And there was again war in Geth, and there was a man of extraordinary size, and his fingers [and toes were] six on each hand and foot, four and twenty; and he was descended from the giants.
وَلَمَّا عَيَّرَ إِسْرَائِيلَ ضَرَبَهُ يَهُونَاثَانُ بْنُ شِمْعَا أَخِي دَاوُدَ.٧7
And he defied Israel, and Jonathan the son of Samaa the brother of David slew him.
هَؤُلَاءِ وُلِدُوا لِرَافَا فِي جَتَّ وَسَقَطُوا بِيَدِ دَاوُدَ وَبِيَدِ عَبِيدِهِ.٨8
These were born to Rapha in Geth; all four were giants, and they fell by the hand of David, and by the hand of his servants.
