صَمُوئِيلَ ٱلثَّانِي 1

وَكَانَ بَعْدَ مَوْتِ شَاوُلَ وَرُجُوعِ دَاوُدَ مِنْ مُضَارَبَةِ ٱلْعَمَالِقَةِ، أَنَّ دَاوُدَ أَقَامَ فِي صِقْلَغَ يَوْمَيْنِ. ١ 1
After the death of Saul, David returned from attacking the Amalekites and remained in Ziklag for two days.
وَفِي ٱلْيَوْمِ ٱلثَّالِثِ إِذَا بِرَجُلٍ أَتَى مِنَ ٱلْمَحَلَّةِ مِنْ عِنْدِ شَاوُلَ وَثِيَابُهُ مُمَزَّقَةٌ وَعَلَى رَأْسِهِ تُرَابٌ. فَلَمَّا جَاءَ إِلَى دَاوُدَ خَرَّ إِلَى ٱلْأَرْضِ وَسَجَدَ. ٢ 2
On the third day, a man came from Saul's camp with his clothes torn and with dirt on his head. When he came to David he lay facedown on the ground and prostrated himself.
فَقَالَ لَهُ دَاوُدُ: «مِنْ أَيْنَ أَتَيْتَ؟» فَقَالَ لَهُ: «مِنْ مَحَلَّةِ إِسْرَائِيلَ نَجَوْتُ». ٣ 3
David said to him, “Where did you come from?” He answered, “I escaped from the camp of Israel.”
فَقَالَ لَهُ دَاوُدُ: «كَيْفَ كَانَ ٱلْأَمْرُ؟ أَخْبِرْنِي». فَقَالَ: «إِنَّ ٱلشَّعْبَ قَدْ هَرَبَ مِنَ ٱلْقِتَالِ، وَسَقَطَ أَيْضًا كَثِيرُونَ مِنَ ٱلشَّعْبِ وَمَاتُوا، وَمَاتَ شَاوُلُ وَيُونَاثَانُ ٱبْنُهُ أَيْضًا». ٤ 4
David said to him, “Please tell me how things went.” He answered, “The people fled from the battle. Many have fallen and many are dead. Saul and Jonathan his son are also dead.”
فَقَالَ دَاوُدُ لِلْغُلَامِ ٱلَّذِي أَخْبَرَهُ: «كَيْفَ عَرَفْتَ أَنَّهُ قَدْ مَاتَ شَاوُلُ وَيُونَاثَانُ ٱبْنُهُ؟» ٥ 5
David said to the young man, “How do you know that Saul and Jonathan his son are dead?”
فَقَالَ ٱلْغُلَامُ ٱلَّذِي أَخْبَرَهُ: «ٱتَّفَقَ أَنِّي كُنْتُ فِي جَبَلِ جِلْبُوعَ وَإِذَا شَاوُلُ يَتَوَكَّأُ عَلَى رُمْحِهِ، وَإِذَا بِٱلْمَرْكَبَاتِ وَٱلْفُرْسَانِ يَشُدُّونَ وَرَاءَهُ. ٦ 6
The young man replied, “By chance I happened to be on Mount Gilboa, and there Saul was leaning on his spear, and chariots and riders were about to catch up with him.
فَٱلْتَفَتَ إِلَى وَرَائِهِ فَرَآنِي وَدَعَانِي فَقُلْتُ: هَأَنَذَا. ٧ 7
Saul turned around and saw me and called out to me. I answered, 'Here I am.'
فَقَالَ لِي: مَنْ أَنْتَ؟ فَقُلْتُ لَهُ: عَمَالِيقِيٌّ أَنَا. ٨ 8
He said to me, 'Who are you?' I answered him, 'I am an Amalekite.'
فَقَالَ لِي: قِفْ عَلَيَّ وَٱقْتُلْنِي لِأَنَّهُ قَدِ ٱعْتَرَانِيَ ٱلدُّوَارُ، لِأَنَّ كُلَّ نَفْسِي بَعْدُ فِيَّ. ٩ 9
He said to me, 'Please stand over me and kill me, for great suffering has taken hold of me, but life is still in me.'
فَوَقَفْتُ عَلَيْهِ وَقَتَلْتُهُ لِأَنِّي عَلِمْتُ أَنَّهُ لَا يَعِيشُ بَعْدَ سُقُوطِهِ، وَأَخَذْتُ ٱلْإِكْلِيلَ ٱلَّذِي عَلَى رَأْسِهِ وَٱلسِّوارَ ٱلَّذِي عَلَى ذِرَاعِهِ وَأَتَيْتُ بِهِمَا إِلَى سَيِّدِي هَهُنَا». ١٠ 10
So I stood over him and killed him, because I knew that he would not live after he had fallen. Then I took the crown that was on his head and the band that was on his arm, and brought them here to you, my master.”
فَأَمْسَكَ دَاوُدُ ثِيَابَهُ وَمَزَّقَهَا، وَكَذَا جَمِيعُ ٱلرِّجَالِ ٱلَّذِينَ مَعَهُ. ١١ 11
Then David tore his clothes, and all the men with him did the same.
وَنَدَبُوا وَبَكَوْا وَصَامُوا إِلَى ٱلْمَسَاءِ عَلَى شَاوُلَ وَعَلَى يُونَاثَانَ ٱبْنِهِ، وَعَلَى شَعْبِ ٱلرَّبِّ وَعَلَى بَيْتِ إِسْرَائِيلَ لِأَنَّهُمْ سَقَطُوا بِٱلسَّيْفِ. ١٢ 12
They mourned, wept, and fasted until evening for Saul, for Jonathan his son, for the people of Yahweh, and for the house of Israel because they had fallen by the sword.
ثُمَّ قَالَ دَاوُدُ لِلْغُلَامِ ٱلَّذِي أَخْبَرَهُ: «مِنْ أَيْنَ أَنْتَ؟» فَقَالَ: «أَنَا ٱبْنُ رَجُلٍ غَرِيبٍ، عَمَالِيقِيٍّ». ١٣ 13
David said to the young man, “Where are you from?” He answered, “I am the son of a foreigner in the land, an Amalekite.”
فَقَالَ لَهُ دَاوُدُ: «كَيْفَ لَمْ تَخَفْ أَنْ تَمُدَّ يَدَكَ لِتُهْلِكَ مَسِيحَ ٱلرَّبِّ؟». ١٤ 14
David said to him, “Why were you not afraid to kill Yahweh's anointed king with your own hand?”
ثُمَّ دَعَا دَاوُدُ وَاحِدًا مِنَ ٱلْغِلْمَانِ وَقَالَ: «تَقَدَّمْ. أَوْقِعْ بِهِ». فَضَرَبَهُ فَمَاتَ. ١٥ 15
David called one of the young men and said, “Go and kill him.” So that man went and struck him down, and the Amalekite died.
فَقَالَ لَهُ دَاوُدُ: «دَمُكَ عَلَى رَأْسِكَ لِأَنَّ فَمَكَ شَهِدَ عَلَيْكَ قَائِلًا: أَنَا قَتَلْتُ مَسِيحَ ٱلرَّبِّ». ١٦ 16
Then David said to the dead Amalekite, “Your blood is on your head because your own mouth has testified against you and said, 'I have killed Yahweh's anointed king.'”
وَرَثَا دَاوُدُ بِهَذِهِ ٱلْمَرْثَاةِ شَاوُلَ وَيُونَاثَانَ ٱبْنَهُ، ١٧ 17
Then David sung this funeral song about Saul and Jonathan his son.
وَقَالَ أَنْ يَتَعَلَّمَ بَنُو يَهُوذَا «نَشِيدَ ٱلْقَوْسِ». هُوَذَا ذَلِكَ مَكْتُوبٌ فِي سِفْرِ يَاشَرَ: ١٨ 18
He commanded the people to teach this Song of the Bow to the sons of Judah, which has been written in the Book of Jashar.
«اَلظَّبْيُ يَا إِسْرَائِيلُ مَقْتُولٌ عَلَى شَوَامِخِكَ. كَيْفَ سَقَطَ ٱلْجَبَابِرَةُ! ١٩ 19
“Your glory, Israel, is dead, killed on your high places! How the mighty have fallen!
لَا تُخْبِرُوا فِي جَتَّ. لَا تُبَشِّرُوا فِي أَسْوَاقِ أَشْقَلُونَ، لِئَلَّا تَفْرَحَ بَنَاتُ ٱلْفِلِسْطِينِيِّينَ، لِئَلَّا تَشْمَتَ بَنَاتُ ٱلْغُلْفِ. ٢٠ 20
Do not tell it in Gath, do not proclaim it in the streets of Ashkelon, so that the daughters of the Philistines may not rejoice, so that the daughters of the uncircumcised may not celebrate.
يَاجِبَالَ جِلْبُوعَ لَا يَكُنْ طَلٌّ وَلَا مَطَرٌ عَلَيْكُنَّ، وَلَا حُقُولُ تَقْدِمَاتٍ، لِأَنَّهُ هُنَاكَ طُرِحَ مِجَنُّ ٱلْجَبَابِرَةِ، مِجَنُّ شَاوُلَ بِلَا مَسْحٍ بِٱلدُّهْنِ. ٢١ 21
Mountains of Gilboa, let there not be dew or rain on you, nor fields giving grain for offerings, for there the shield of the mighty was defiled. The shield of Saul is no longer anointed with oil.
مِنْ دَمِ ٱلْقَتْلَى، مِنْ شَحْمِ ٱلْجَبَابِرَةِ لَمْ تَرْجِعْ قَوْسُ يُونَاثَانَ إِلَى ٱلْوَرَاءِ، وَسَيْفُ شَاوُلَ لَمْ يَرْجِعْ خَائِبًا. ٢٢ 22
From the blood of those who have been killed, from the bodies of the mighty, the bow of Jonathan did not turn back, and the sword of Saul did not return empty.
شَاوُلُ وَيُونَاثَانُ ٱلْمَحْبُوبَانِ وَٱلْحُلْوَانِ فِي حَيَاتِهِمَا لَمْ يَفْتَرِقَا فِي مَوْتِهِمَا. أَخَفُّ مِنَ ٱلنُّسُورِ وَأَشَدُّ مِنَ ٱلْأُسُودِ. ٢٣ 23
Saul and Jonathan were loved and gracious in life, and in their death they were not separated. They were swifter than eagles, they were stronger than lions.
يَا بَنَاتِ إِسْرَائِيلَ، ٱبْكِينَ شَاوُلَ ٱلَّذِي أَلْبَسَكُنَّ قِرْمِزًا بِٱلتَّنَعُّمِ، وَجَعَلَ حُلِيَّ ٱلذَّهَبِ عَلَى مَلَابِسِكُنَّ. ٢٤ 24
You daughters of Israel, weep over Saul, who clothed you in scarlet as well as jewels, and who put ornaments of gold on your clothing.
كَيْفَ سَقَطَ ٱلْجَبَابِرَةُ فِي وَسَطِ ٱلْحَرْبِ! يُونَاثَانُ عَلَى شَوَامِخَكِ مَقْتُولٌ. ٢٥ 25
How the mighty have fallen in the midst of the battle! Jonathan is killed on your high places.
قَدْ تَضَايَقْتُ عَلَيْكَ يَا أَخِي يُونَاثَانُ. كُنْتَ حُلْوًا لِي جِدًّا. مَحَبَّتُكَ لِي أَعْجَبُ مِنْ مَحَبَّةِ ٱلنِّسَاءِ. ٢٦ 26
I am distressed for you, my brother Jonathan. You were very dear to me. Your love to me was wonderful, exceeding the love of women.
كَيْفَ سَقَطَ ٱلْجَبَابِرَةُ وَبَادَتْ آلَاتُ ٱلْحَرْبِ!». ٢٧ 27
How the mighty have fallen, and the weapons of war perished!”
