1 اخبار 20

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
It happened, at the time of the return of the year, at the time when kings go out, that Joab led forth the army, and wasted the country of the children of Ammon, and came and besieged Rabbah. But David stayed at Jerusalem. Joab struck Rabbah, and overthrew 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
David took the crown of their king from off his head, and found it to weigh a talent of gold, and there were precious stones in it; and it was set on David's head: and he brought forth the spoil of the city, a very great amount.
وَأَخْرَجَ ٱلشَّعْبَ ٱلَّذِينَ بِهَا وَنَشَرَهُمْ بِمَنَاشِيرِ وَنَوَارِجِ حَدِيدٍ وَفُؤُوسٍ. وَهَكَذَا صَنَعَ دَاوُدُ لِكُلِّ مُدُنِ بَنِي عَمُّونَ. ثُمَّ رَجَعَ دَاوُدُ وَكُلُّ ٱلشَّعْبِ إِلَى أُورُشَلِيمَ.٣3
He brought forth the people who were in it, and cut them with saws, and with iron picks, and with axes. David did so to all the cities of the children of Ammon. David and all the people returned to Jerusalem.
ثُمَّ بَعْدَ ذَلِكَ قَامَتْ حَرْبٌ فِي جَازِرَ مَعَ ٱلْفِلِسْطِينِيِّينَ. حِينَئِذٍ سَبْكَايُ ٱلْحُوشِيُّ قَتَلَ سَفَّايَ مِنْ أَوْلَادِ رَافَا فَذَلُّوا.٤4
Now it happened afterward that there was again war with the Philistines at Gezer; then Sibbekai the Hushathite killed Sippai, a descendant of the Rephaim; and they were subdued.
وَكَانَتْ أَيْضًا حَرْبٌ مَعَ ٱلْفِلِسْطِينِيِّينَ، فَقَتَلَ أَلْحَانَانُ بْنُ يَاعُورَ لَحْمِيَ أَخَا جُلْيَاتَ ٱلْجَتِّيِّ. وَكَانَتْ قَنَاةُ رُمْحِهِ كَنَوْلِ ٱلنَّسَّاجِينَ.٥5
There was again war with the Philistines; and Elhanan the son of Jair the Bethlehemite killed the brother of Goliath the Gittite, the staff of whose spear was like a weaver's beam.
ثُمَّ كَانَتْ أَيْضًا حَرْبٌ فِي جَتَّ، وَكَانَ رَجُلٌ طَوِيلُ ٱلْقَامَةِ أَعْنَشُ، أَصَابِعُهُ أَرْبَعٌ وَعِشْرُونَ، وَهُوَ أَيْضًا وُلِدَ لِرَافَا.٦6
There was again war at Gath, where there was a man of great stature, whose fingers and toes were twenty-four, six on each hand, and six on each foot; and he also was descended from the Raphah.
وَلَمَّا عَيَّرَ إِسْرَائِيلَ ضَرَبَهُ يَهُونَاثَانُ بْنُ شِمْعَا أَخِي دَاوُدَ.٧7
When he defied Israel, Jonathan the son of Shimea David's brother killed him.
هَؤُلَاءِ وُلِدُوا لِرَافَا فِي جَتَّ وَسَقَطُوا بِيَدِ دَاوُدَ وَبِيَدِ عَبِيدِهِ.٨8
These were the descendants of the Raphah in Gath; and they fell by the hand of David, and by the hand of his servants.
