صَمُوئِيلَ ٱلْأَوَّلُ 17

وَجَمَعَ ٱلْفِلِسْطِينِيُّونَ جُيُوشَهُمْ لِلْحَرْبِ، فَٱجْتَمَعُوا فِي سُوكُوهَ ٱلَّتِي لِيَهُوذَا، وَنَزَلُوا بَيْنَ سُوكُوهَ وَعَزِيقَةَ فِي أَفَسِ دَمِّيمَ. ١ 1
Now the Philistines gathered their armies for battle. They were gathered at Sokoh, which belongs to Judah. They had encamped between Sokoh and Azekah, in Ephes Dammim.
وَٱجْتَمَعَ شَاوُلُ وَرِجَالُ إِسْرَائِيلَ وَنَزَلُوا فِي وَادِي ٱلْبُطْمِ، وَٱصْطَفُّوا لِلْحَرْبِ لِلِقَاءِ ٱلْفِلِسْطِينِيِّينَ. ٢ 2
Saul and the men of Israel gathered and encamped in the Valley of Elah, and drew up their battle line to meet the Philistines.
وَكَانَ ٱلْفِلِسْطِينِيُّونَ وُقُوفًا عَلَى جَبَلٍ مِنْ هُنَا، وَإِسْرَائِيلُ وُقُوفًا عَلَى جَبَلٍ مِنْ هُنَاكَ، وَٱلْوَادِي بَيْنَهُمْ. ٣ 3
The Philistines stood on a mountain on one side, and Israel stood on a mountain on the other side with a valley between them.
فَخَرَجَ رَجُلٌ مُبَارِزٌ مِنْ جُيُوشِ ٱلْفِلِسْطِينِيِّينَ ٱسْمُهُ جُلْيَاتُ، مِنْ جَتَّ، طُولُهُ سِتُّ أَذْرُعٍ وَشِبْرٌ، ٤ 4
A strong man came out of the Philistines' camp, a man named Goliath of Gath, whose height was six cubits and a span.
وَعَلَى رَأْسِهِ خُوذَةٌ مِنْ نُحَاسٍ، وَكَانَ لَابِسًا دِرْعًا حَرْشَفِيًّا، وَوَزْنَ ٱلْدِّرْعِ خَمْسَةُ آلَافِ شَاقِلِ نُحَاسٍ، ٥ 5
He had a helmet of bronze on his head, and he was armed with a coat of chainmail. The coat weighed five thousand shekels of bronze.
وَجُرْمُوقَا نُحَاسٍ عَلَى رِجْلَيْهِ، وَمِزْرَاقُ نُحَاسٍ بَيْنَ كَتِفَيْهِ، ٦ 6
He had bronze armor on his legs and a javelin of bronze between his shoulders.
وَقَنَاةُ رُمْحِهِ كَنَوْلِ ٱلنَّسَّاجِينَ، وَسِنَانُ رُمْحِهِ سِتُّ مِئَةِ شَاقِلِ حَدِيدٍ، وَحَامِلُ ٱلتُّرْسِ كَانَ يَمْشِي قُدَّامَهُ. ٧ 7
The staff of his spear was large, with a loop of cord for throwing it like the cord on a weaver's beam. His spear's head weighed six hundred shekels of iron. His shield bearer went before him.
فَوَقَفَ وَنَادَى صُفُوفَ إِسْرَائِيلَ وَقَالَ لَهُمْ: «لِمَاذَا تَخْرُجُونَ لِتَصْطَفُّوا لِلْحَرْبِ؟ أَمَا أَنَا ٱلْفِلِسْطِينِيُّ، وَأَنْتُمْ عَبِيدٌ لِشَاوُلَ؟ ٱخْتَارُوا لِأَنْفُسِكُمْ رَجُلًا وَلْيَنْزِلْ إِلَيَّ. ٨ 8
He stood and shouted to the ranks of Israel, “Why have you come out to draw up for battle? Am not I a Philistine, and are you not servants of Saul? Choose a man for yourselves and let him come down to me.
فَإِنْ قَدَرَ أَنْ يُحَارِبَنِي وَيَقْتُلَنِي نَصِيرُ لَكُمْ عَبِيدًا، وَإِنْ قَدَرْتُ أَنَا عَلَيْهِ وَقَتَلْتُهُ تَصِيرُونَ أَنْتُمْ لَنَا عَبِيدًا وَتَخْدِمُونَنَا». ٩ 9
If he is able to fight with me and kill me, then will we be your servants. But if I defeat him and kill him, then you will be our servants and serve us.”
وَقَالَ ٱلْفِلِسْطِينِيُّ: «أَنَا عَيَّرْتُ صُفُوفَ إِسْرَائِيلَ هَذَا ٱلْيَوْمَ. أَعْطُونِي رَجُلًا فَنَتَحَارَبَ مَعًا». ١٠ 10
Again the Philistine said, “I challenge the ranks of Israel today. Give me a man so we may fight together.”
وَلَمَّا سَمِعَ شَاوُلُ وَجَمِيعُ إِسْرَائِيلَ كَلَامَ ٱلْفِلِسْطِينِيِّ هَذَا ٱرْتَاعُوا وَخَافُوا جِدًّا. ١١ 11
When Saul and all Israel heard what the Philistine said, they were discouraged and greatly afraid.
وَدَاوُدُ هُوَ ٱبْنُ ذَلِكَ ٱلرَّجُلِ ٱلْأَفْرَاتِيِّ مِنْ بَيْتِ لَحْمِ يَهُوذَا ٱلَّذِي ٱسْمُهُ يَسَّى وَلَهُ ثَمَانِيَةُ بَنِينَ. وَكَانَ ٱلرَّجُلُ فِي أَيَّامِ شَاوُلَ قَدْ شَاخَ وَكَبُرَ بَيْنَ ٱلنَّاسِ. ١٢ 12
Now David was the son of the Ephrathite of Bethlehem in Judah, whose name was Jesse. He had eight sons. Jesse was an old man in the days of Saul, very old among men.
وَذَهَبَ بَنُو يَسَّى ٱلثَّلَاثَةُ ٱلْكِبَارُ وَتَبِعُوا شَاوُلَ إِلَى ٱلْحَرْبِ. وَأَسْمَاءُ بَنِيهِ ٱلثَّلَاثَةِ ٱلَّذِينَ ذَهَبُوا إِلَى ٱلْحَرْبِ: أَلِيآبُ ٱلْبِكْرُ، وَأَبِينَادَابُ ثَانِيهِ، وَشَمَّةُ ثَالِثُهُمَا. ١٣ 13
The three oldest sons of Jesse had followed Saul to the battle. The names of his three sons who went to the battle were Eliab the firstborn, second to him Abinadab, and the third Shammah.
وَدَاوُدُ هُوَ ٱلصَّغِيرُ. وَٱلثَّلَاثَةُ ٱلْكِبَارُ ذَهَبُوا وَرَاءَ شَاوُلَ. ١٤ 14
David was the youngest. The three oldest followed Saul.
وَأَمَّا دَاوُدُ فَكَانَ يَذْهَبُ وَيَرْجِعُ مِنْ عِنْدِ شَاوُلَ لِيَرْعَى غَنَمَ أَبِيهِ فِي بَيْتِ لَحْمٍ. ١٥ 15
Now David went back and forth between Saul's army and his father's sheep at Bethlehem, in order to feed them.
وَكَانَ ٱلْفِلِسْطِينِيُّ يَتَقَدَّمُ وَيَقِفُ صَبَاحًا وَمَسَاءً أَرْبَعِينَ يَوْمًا. ١٦ 16
For forty days the Philistine strong man came near morning and evening to present himself for battle.
فَقَالَ يَسَّى لِدَاوُدَ ٱبْنِهِ: «خُذْ لِإِخْوَتِكَ إِيفَةً مِنْ هَذَا ٱلْفَرِيكِ، وَهَذِهِ ٱلْعَشَرَ ٱلْخُبْزَاتِ وَٱرْكُضْ إِلَى ٱلْمَحَلَّةِ إِلَى إِخْوَتِكَ. ١٧ 17
Then Jesse said to his son David, “Take to your brothers an ephah of this roasted grain and these ten loaves, and carry them quickly to the camp for your brothers.
وَهَذِهِ ٱلْعَشَرَ ٱلْقِطْعَاتِ مِنَ ٱلْجُبْنِ قَدِّمْهَا لِرَئِيسِ ٱلْأَلْفِ، وَٱفْتَقِدْ سَلَامَةَ إِخْوَتِكَ وَخُذْ مِنْهُمْ عُرْبُونًا». ١٨ 18
Also bring these ten cheeses to the captain of their thousand. See how your brothers are doing and bring back some proof that they are doing well.
وَكَانَ شَاوُلُ وَهُمْ وَجَمِيعُ رِجَالِ إِسْرَائِيلَ فِي وَادِي ٱلْبُطْمِ يُحَارِبُونَ ٱلْفِلِسْطِينِيِّينَ. ١٩ 19
Your brothers are with Saul and all the men of Israel in the Valley of Elah, fighting the Philistines.”
فَبَكَّرَ دَاوُدُ صَبَاحًا وَتَرَكَ ٱلْغَنَمَ مَعَ حَارِسٍ، وَحَمَّلَ وَذَهَبَ كَمَا أَمَرَهُ يَسَّى، وَأَتَى إِلَى ٱلْمِتْرَاسِ، وَٱلْجَيْشُ خَارِجٌ إِلَى ٱلِٱصْطِفَافِ وَهَتَفُوا لِلْحَرْبِ. ٢٠ 20
David got up early in the morning and left the flock in the care of a shepherd. He took the supplies and left, as Jesse commanded him. He came to the camp as the army was going out to the battlefield shouting the war cry.
وَٱصْطَفَّ إِسْرَائِيلُ وَٱلْفِلِسْطِينِيُّونَ صَفًّا مُقَابِلَ صَفٍّ. ٢١ 21
Then Israel and the Philistines lined up for battle, army against army.
فَتَرَكَ دَاوُدُ ٱلْأَمْتِعَةَ ٱلَّتِي مَعَهُ بِيَدِ حَافِظِ ٱلْأَمْتِعَةِ، وَرَكَضَ إِلَى ٱلصَّفِّ وَأَتَى وَسَأَلَ عَنْ سَلَامَةِ إِخْوَتِهِ. ٢٢ 22
David left his belongings with the keeper of supplies, ran to the army, and greeted his brothers.
وَفِيمَا هُوَ يُكَلِّمُهُمْ إِذَا بِرَجُلٍ مُبَارِزٍ ٱسْمُهُ جُلْيَاتُ ٱلْفِلِسْطِينِيُّ مِنْ جَتَّ، صَاعِدٌ مِنْ صُفُوفِ ٱلْفِلِسْطِينِيِّينَ وَتَكَلَّمَ بِمِثْلِ هَذَا ٱلْكَلَامِ، فَسَمِعَ دَاوُدُ. ٢٣ 23
As he talked with them, the strong man, the Philistine of Gath, Goliath by name, and he came out of the ranks of the Philistines, and said the same words as before, and David heard them.
وَجَمِيعُ رِجَالِ إِسْرَائِيلَ لَمَّا رَأَوْا ٱلرَّجُلَ هَرَبُوا مِنْهُ وَخَافُوا جِدًّا. ٢٤ 24
When all the men of Israel saw the man, they fled from him and were very afraid.
فَقَالَ رِجَالُ إِسْرَائِيلَ: «أَرَأَيْتُمْ هَذَا ٱلرَّجُلَ ٱلصَّاعِدَ؟ لِيُعَيِّرَ إِسْرَائِيلَ هُوَ صَاعِدٍ! فَيَكُونُ أَنَّ ٱلرَّجُلَ ٱلَّذِي يَقْتُلُهُ يُغْنِيهِ ٱلْمَلِكُ غِنًى جَزِيلًا، وَيُعْطِيهِ ابِنْتَهُ، وَيَجْعَلُ بَيْتَ أَبِيهِ حُرًّا فِي إِسْرَائِيلَ». ٢٥ 25
The men of Israel said, “Have you seen this man who has come up? He has come to challenge Israel. The king will give great riches to the man who kills him, and he will give his daughter to him in marriage, and will make his father's house free from taxation in Israel.”
فَكَلَّمَ دَاوُدُ ٱلرِّجَالَ ٱلْوَاقِفِينَ مَعَهُ قَائِلًا: «مَاذَا يُفْعَلُ لِلرَّجُلِ ٱلَّذِي يَقْتُلُ ذَلِكَ ٱلْفِلِسْطِينِيَّ، وَيُزِيلُ ٱلْعَارَ عَنْ إِسْرَائِيلَ؟ لِأَنَّهُ مَنْ هُوَ هَذَا ٱلْفِلِسْطِينِيُّ ٱلْأَغْلَفُ حَتَّى يُعَيِّرَ صُفُوفَ ٱللهِ ٱلْحَيِّ؟» ٢٦ 26
David said to the men who stood by him, “What will be done for the man who kills this Philistine and takes away the disgrace from Israel? Who is this uncircumcised Philistine that he should defy the armies of the living God?”
فَكَلَّمَهُ ٱلشَّعْبُ بِمِثْلِ هَذَا ٱلْكَلَامِ قَائِلِينَ: «كَذَا يُفْعَلُ لِلرَّجُلِ ٱلَّذِي يَقْتُلُهُ». ٢٧ 27
Then the people repeated what they had been saying and told him, “So it will be done for the man who kills him.”
وَسَمِعَ أَخُوهُ ٱلْأَكْبَرُ أَلِيآبُ كَلَامَهُ مَعَ ٱلرِّجَالِ، فَحَمِيَ غَضَبُ أَلِيآبَ عَلَى دَاوُدَ وَقَالَ: «لِمَاذَا نَزَلْتَ؟ وَعَلَى مَنْ تَرَكْتَ تِلْكَ ٱلْغُنَيْمَاتِ ٱلْقَلِيلَةَ فِي ٱلْبَرِّيَّةِ؟ أَنَا عَلِمْتُ كِبْرِيَاءَكَ وَشَرَّ قَلْبِكَ، لِأَنَّكَ إِنَّمَا نَزَلْتَ لِكَيْ تَرَى ٱلْحَرْبَ». ٢٨ 28
Eliab his oldest brother heard when he spoke to the men. Eliab's anger was kindled against David, and he said, “Why did you come down here? With whom have you left those few sheep in the wilderness? I know your pride, and the mischief in your heart; for you have come down here so that you might see the battle.”
فَقَالَ دَاوُدُ: «مَاذَا عَمِلْتُ ٱلْآنَ؟ أَمَا هُوَ كَلَامٌ؟». ٢٩ 29
David said, “What have I done now? Was it not just a question?”
وَتَحَوَّلَ مِنْ عِنْدِهِ نَحْوَ آخَرَ، وَتَكَلَّمَ بِمِثْلِ هَذَا ٱلْكَلَامِ، فَرَدَّ لَهُ ٱلشَّعْبُ جَوَابًا كَٱلْجَوَابِ ٱلْأَوَّلِ. ٣٠ 30
He turned away from him toward another, and spoke in the same way. The people answered the same thing as before.
وَسُمِعَ ٱلْكَلَامُ ٱلَّذِي تَكَلَّمَ بِهِ دَاوُدُ وَأَخْبَرُوا بِهِ أَمَامَ شَاوُلَ، فَٱسْتَحْضَرَهُ. ٣١ 31
When the words that David said were heard, soldiers repeated them to Saul, and he sent for David.
فَقَالَ دَاوُدُ لِشَاوُلَ: «لَا يَسْقُطْ قَلْبُ أَحَدٍ بِسَبَبِهِ. عَبْدُكَ يَذْهَبُ وَيُحَارِبُ هَذَا ٱلْفِلِسْطِينِيَّ». ٣٢ 32
Then David said to Saul, “Let no man's heart fail because of that Philistine; your servant will go and fight with this Philistine.”
فَقَالَ شَاوُلُ لِدَاوُدَ: «لَا تَسْتَطِيعُ أَنْ تَذْهَبَ إِلَى هَذَا ٱلْفِلِسْطِينِيِّ لِتُحَارِبَهُ لِأَنَّكَ غُلَامٌ وَهُوَ رَجُلُ حَرْبٍ مُنْذُ صِبَاهُ». ٣٣ 33
Saul said to David, “You are not able to go against this Philistine to fight with him; for you are only a youth, and he a man of war from his youth.”
فَقَالَ دَاوُدُ لِشَاوُلَ: «كَانَ عَبْدُكَ يَرْعَى لِأَبِيهِ غَنَمًا، فَجَاءَ أَسَدٌ مَعَ دُبٍّ وَأَخَذَ شَاةً مِنَ ٱلْقَطِيعِ، ٣٤ 34
But David said to Saul, “Your servant used to keep his father's sheep. When a lion or a bear came and took a lamb out of the flock,
فَخَرَجْتُ وَرَاءَهُ وَقَتَلْتُهُ وَأَنْقَذْتُهَا مِنْ فِيهِ، وَلَمَّا قَامَ عَلَيَّ أَمْسَكْتُهُ مِنْ ذَقْنِهِ وَضَرَبْتُهُ فَقَتَلْتُهُ. ٣٥ 35
I chased after him and attacked him, and rescued it out of his mouth. When he rose up against me, I caught him by his beard, struck him, and killed him.
قَتَلَ عَبْدُكَ ٱلْأَسَدَ وَٱلدُّبَّ جَمِيعًا. وَهَذَا ٱلْفِلِسْطِينِيُّ ٱلْأَغْلَفُ يَكُونُ كَوَاحِدٍ مِنْهُمَا، لِأَنَّهُ قَدْ عَيَّرَ صُفُوفَ ٱللهِ ٱلْحَيِّ». ٣٦ 36
Your servant has killed both a lion and a bear. This uncircumcised Philistine will be like one of them, since he has challenged the armies of the living God.”
وَقَالَ دَاوُدُ: «ٱلرَّبُّ ٱلَّذِي أَنْقَذَنِي مِنْ يَدِ ٱلْأَسَدِ وَمِنْ يَدِ ٱلدُّبِّ هُوَ يُنْقِذُنِي مِنْ يَدِ هَذَا ٱلْفِلِسْطِينِيِّ». فَقَالَ شَاوُلُ لِدَاوُدَ: «ٱذْهَبْ وَلْيَكُنِ ٱلرَّبُّ مَعَكَ». ٣٧ 37
David said, “Yahweh rescued me from the paw of the lion and from the paw of the bear. He will rescue me from the hand of this Philistine.” Then Saul said to David, “Go, and may Yahweh be with you.”
وَأَلْبَسَ شَاوُلُ دَاوُدَ ثِيَابَهُ، وَجَعَلَ خُوذَةً مِنْ نُحَاسٍ عَلَى رَأْسِهِ، وَأَلْبَسَهُ دِرْعًا. ٣٨ 38
Saul clothed David with his armor. He put a helmet of bronze upon his head, and he clothed him with a coat of chainmail.
فَتَقَلَّدَ دَاوُدُ بِسَيْفِهِ فَوْقَ ثِيَابِهِ وَعَزَمَ أَنْ يَمْشِيَ، لِأَنَّهُ لَمْ يَكُنْ قَدْ جَرَّبَ. فَقَالَ دَاوُدُ لِشَاوُلَ: «لَا أَقْدِرُ أَنْ أَمْشِيَ بِهَذِهِ، لِأَنِّي لَمْ أُجَرِّبْهَا». وَنَزَعَهَا دَاوُدُ عَنْهُ. ٣٩ 39
David strapped his sword on his armor. But he was not able to walk, because he had not trained with them. Then David said to Saul, “I cannot go out to fight with these, for I have not trained with them.” So David put them off.
وَأَخَذَ عَصَاهُ بِيَدِهِ، وَٱنْتَخَبَ لَهُ خَمْسَةَ حِجَارَةٍ مُلْسٍ مِنَ ٱلْوَادِي وَجَعَلَهَا فِي كِنْفِ ٱلرُّعَاةِ ٱلَّذِي لَهُ، أَيْ فِي ٱلْجِرَابِ، وَمِقْلَاعَهُ بِيَدِهِ وَتَقَدَّمَ نَحْوَ ٱلْفِلِسْطِينِيِّ. ٤٠ 40
He took his staff in his hand and chose five smooth stones out of the brook; he put them in his shepherd's pouch. His sling was in his hand as he approached the Philistine.
وَذَهَبَ ٱلْفِلِسْطِينِيُّ ذِاهِبًا وَٱقْتَرَبَ إِلَى دَاوُدَ وَٱلْرَّجُلُ حَامِلُ ٱلتُّرْسِ أَمَامَهُ. ٤١ 41
The Philistine came and approached David, with his shield bearer in front of him.
وَلَمَّا نَظَرَ ٱلْفِلِسْطِينِيُّ وَرَأَى دَاوُدَ ٱسْتَحْقَرَهُ لِأَنَّهُ كَانَ غُلَامًا وَأَشْقَرَ جَمِيلَ ٱلْمَنْظَرِ. ٤٢ 42
When the Philistine looked around and saw David, he despised him, for he was only a boy, and ruddy, with a handsome appearance.
فَقَالَ ٱلْفِلِسْطِينِيُّ لِدَاوُدَ: «أَلَعَلِّي أَنَا كَلْبٌ حَتَّى أَنَّكَ تَأْتِي إِلَيَّ بِعِصِيٍّ؟». وَلَعَنَ ٱلْفِلِسْطِينِيُّ دَاوُدَ بِآلِهَتِهِ. ٤٣ 43
Then the Philistine said to David, “Am I a dog, that you come to me with sticks?,” and the Philistine cursed David by his gods.
وَقَالَ ٱلْفِلِسْطِينِيُّ لِدَاوُدَ: «تَعَالَ إِلَيَّ فَأُعْطِيَ لَحْمَكَ لِطُيُورِ ٱلسَّمَاءِ وَوُحُوشِ ٱلْبَرِّيَّةِ». ٤٤ 44
The Philistine said to David, “Come to me, and I will give your flesh to the birds of the heavens and to the beasts of the field.”
فَقَالَ دَاوُدُ لِلْفِلِسْطِينِيِّ: «أَنْتَ تَأْتِي إِلَيَّ بِسَيْفٍ وَبِرُمْحٍ وَبِتُرْسٍ، وَأَنَا آتِي إِلَيْكَ بِٱسْمِ رَبِّ ٱلْجُنُودِ إِلَهِ صُفُوفِ إِسْرَائِيلَ ٱلَّذِينَ عَيَّرْتَهُمْ. ٤٥ 45
David replied to the Philistine, “You come to me with a sword, a spear, and a javelin. But I come to you in the name of Yahweh of hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied.
هَذَا ٱلْيَوْمَ يَحْبِسُكَ ٱلرَّبُّ فِي يَدِي، فَأَقْتُلُكَ وَأَقْطَعُ رَأْسَكَ. وَأُعْطِي جُثَثَ جَيْشِ ٱلْفِلِسْطِينِيِّينَ هَذَا ٱلْيَوْمَ لِطُيُورِ ٱلسَّمَاءِ وَحَيَوَانَاتِ ٱلْأَرْضِ، فَتَعْلَمُ كُلُّ ٱلْأَرْضِ أَنَّهُ يُوجَدُ إِلَهٌ لِإِسْرَائِيلَ. ٤٦ 46
Today Yahweh will give me victory over you, and I will kill you and remove your head from your body. Today I will give the dead bodies of the Philistine army to the birds of the heavens and to the wild beasts of the earth, so that all the earth may know that there is a God in Israel,
وَتَعْلَمُ هَذِهِ ٱلْجَمَاعَةُ كُلُّهَا أَنَّهُ لَيْسَ بِسَيْفٍ وَلَا بِرُمْحٍ يُخَلِّصُ ٱلرَّبُّ، لِأَنَّ ٱلْحَرْبَ لِلرَّبِّ وَهُوَ يَدْفَعُكُمْ لِيَدِنَا». ٤٧ 47
and that all this gathering may know that Yahweh does not give victory with sword or spear. For the battle is Yahweh's, and he will give you into our hand.”
وَكَانَ لَمَّا قَامَ ٱلْفِلِسْطِينِيُّ وَذَهَبَ وَتَقدَّمَ لِلِقَاءِ دَاودَ أَنَّ دَاوُدَ أَسْرَعَ وَرَكَضَ نَحْوَ ٱلصَّفِّ لِلِقَاءِ ٱلْفِلِسْطِينِيِّ. ٤٨ 48
When the Philistine rose and approached David, then David ran quickly toward the enemy army to meet him.
وَمَدَّ دَاوُدُ يَدَهُ إِلَى ٱلْكِنْفِ وَأَخَذَ مِنْهُ حَجَرًا وَرَمَاهُ بِٱلْمِقْلَاعِ، وَضَرَبَ ٱلْفِلِسْطِينِيَّ فِي جِبْهَتِهِ، فَٱرْتَزَّ ٱلْحَجَرُ فِي جِبْهَتِهِ، وَسَقَطَ عَلَى وَجْهِهِ إِلَى ٱلْأَرْضِ. ٤٩ 49
David put his hand in his bag, took a stone from it, slung it, and hit the Philistine in the forehead. The stone sank into the Philistine's forehead, and he fell on his face to the ground.
فَتَمَكَّنَ دَاوُدُ مِنَ ٱلْفِلِسْطِينِيِّ بِٱلْمِقْلَاعِ وَٱلْحَجَرِ، وَضَرَبَ ٱلْفِلِسْطِينِيَّ وَقَتَلَهُ. وَلَمْ يَكُنْ سَيْفٌ بِيَدِ دَاوُدَ. ٥٠ 50
David defeated the Philistine with a sling and with a stone. He hit the Philistine and killed him. There was no sword in David's hand.
فَرَكَضَ دَاوُدُ وَوَقَفَ عَلَى ٱلْفِلِسْطِينِيِّ وَأَخَذَ سَيْفَهُ وَٱخْتَرَطَهُ مِنْ غِمْدِهِ وَقَتَلَهُ وَقَطَعَ بِهِ رَأْسَهُ. فَلَمَّا رَأَى ٱلْفِلِسْطِينِيُّونَ أَنَّ جَبَّارَهُمْ قَدْ مَاتَ هَرَبُوا. ٥١ 51
Then David ran and stood over the Philistine and took his sword, drew it out of the sheath, killed him, and cut off his head with it. When the Philistines saw that their strong man was dead, they fled.
فَقَامَ رِجَالُ إِسْرَائِيلَ وَيَهُوذَا وَهَتَفُوا وَلَحِقُوا ٱلْفِلِسْطِينِيِّينَ حَتَّى مَجِيئِكَ إِلَى ٱلْوَادِي، وَحَتَّى أَبْوَابِ عَقْرُونَ. فَسَقَطَتْ قَتْلَى ٱلْفِلِسْطِينِيِّينَ فِي طَرِيقِ شَعَرَايِمَ إِلَى جَتَّ وَإِلَى عَقْرُونَ. ٥٢ 52
Then the men of Israel and of Judah rose with a shout, and chased after the Philistines as far as the valley and the gates of Ekron. The dead Philistines lay along the way to Shaaraim, all the way to Gath and Ekron.
ثُمَّ رَجَعَ بَنُو إِسْرَائِيلَ مِنْ ٱلِٱحْتِمَاءِ وَرَاءَ ٱلْفِلِسْطِينِيِّينَ وَنَهَبُوا مَحَلَّتَهُمْ. ٥٣ 53
The people of Israel returned from chasing the Philistines, and they plundered their camp.
وَأَخَذَ دَاوُدُ رَأْسَ ٱلْفِلِسْطِينِيِّ وَأَتَى بِهِ إِلَى أُورُشَلِيمَ، وَوَضَعَ أَدَوَاتِهِ فِي خَيْمَتِهِ. ٥٤ 54
David took the head of the Philistine and brought it to Jerusalem, but he put his armor in his tent.
وَلَمَّا رَأَى شَاوُلُ دَاوُدَ خَارِجًا لِلِقَاءِ ٱلْفِلِسْطِينِيِّ قَالَ لِأَبْنَيْرَ رَئِيسِ ٱلْجَيْشِ: «ٱبْنُ مَنْ هَذَا ٱلْغُلَامُ يَا أَبْنَيْرُ؟» فَقَالَ أَبْنَيْرُ: «وَحَيَاتِكَ أَيُّهَا ٱلْمَلِكُ لَسْتُ أَعْلَمُ». ٥٥ 55
When Saul saw David go out against the Philistine, he said to Abner, the captain of the army, “Abner, whose son is this youth?” Abner said, “As you live, king, I do not know.”
فَقَالَ ٱلْمَلِكُ: «ٱسْأَلِ ٱبْنُ مَنْ هَذَا ٱلْغُلَامُ». ٥٦ 56
The king said, “Ask those who might know, whose son the boy is.”
وَلَمَّا رَجَعَ دَاوُدُ مِنْ قَتْلِ ٱلْفِلِسْطِينِيِّ أَخَذَهُ أَبْنَيْرُ وَأَحْضَرَهُ أَمَامَ شَاوُلَ وَرَأْسُ ٱلْفِلِسْطِينِيِّ بِيَدِهِ. ٥٧ 57
When David returned from killing the Philistine, Abner took him, and brought him before Saul with the head of the Philistine in his hand.
فَقَالَ لَهُ شَاوُلُ: «ٱبْنُ مَنْ أَنْتَ يَا غُلَامُ؟» فَقَالَ دَاوُدُ: «ٱبْنُ عَبْدِكَ يَسَّى ٱلْبَيْتَلَحْمِيِّ». ٥٨ 58
Saul said to him, “Whose son are you, young man?” David answered, “I am the son of your servant Jesse the Bethlehemite.”
