2 صموئيل 23

فَهَذِهِ هِيَ كَلِمَاتُ دَاوُدَ ٱلْأَخِيرَةُ: «وَحْيُ دَاوُدَ بْنِ يَسَّى، وَوَحْيُ ٱلرَّجُلِ ٱلْقَائِمِ فِي ٱلْعُلَا، مَسِيحِ إِلَهِ يَعْقُوبَ، وَمُرَنِّمِ إِسْرَائِيلَ ٱلْحُلْوِ: ١ 1
Now these are the last words of David. David the son of Jesse saith, And the man who was raised on high saith, The anointed of the God of Jacob, And the sweet psalmist of Israel:
رُوحُ ٱلرَّبِّ تَكَلَّمَ بِي وَكَلِمَتُهُ عَلَى لِسَانِي. ٢ 2
The Spirit of Jehovah spake by me, And his word was upon my tongue.
قَالَ إِلَهُ إِسْرَائِيلَ. إِلَيَّ تَكَلَّمَ صَخْرَةُ إِسْرَائِيلَ: إِذَا تَسَلَّطَ عَلَى ٱلنَّاسِ بَارٌّ يَتَسَلَّطُ بِخَوْفِ ٱللهِ، ٣ 3
The God of Israel said, The Rock of Israel spake to me: One that ruleth over men righteously, That ruleth in the fear of God,
وَكَنُورِ ٱلصَّبَاحِ إِذَا أَشْرَقَتِ ٱلشَّمْسُ. كَعُشْبٍ مِنَ ٱلْأَرْضِ فِي صَبَاحٍ صَحْوٍ مُضِيءٍ غِبَّ ٱلْمَطَرِ. ٤ 4
[He shall be] as the light of the morning, when the sun riseth, A morning without clouds, [When] the tender grass [springeth] out of the earth, Through clear shining after rain.
أَلَيْسَ هَكَذَا بَيْتِي عِنْدَ ٱللهِ؟ لِأَنَّهُ وَضَعَ لِي عَهْدًا أَبَدِيًّا مُتْقَنًا فِي كُلِّ شَيْءٍ وَمَحْفُوظًا، أَفَلَا يُثْبِتُ كُلَّ خَلَاصِي وَكُلَّ مَسَرَّتِي؟ ٥ 5
Verily my house is not so with God; Yet he hath made with me an everlasting covenant, Ordered in all things, and sure: For it is all my salvation, and all [my] desire, Although he maketh it not to grow.
وَلَكِنَّ بَنِي بَلِيَّعَالَ جَمِيعَهُمْ كَشَوْكٍ مَطْرُوحٍ، لِأَنَّهُمْ لَا يُؤْخَذُونَ بِيَدٍ. ٦ 6
But the ungodly shall be all of them as thorns to be thrust away, Because they cannot be taken with the hand;
وَٱلرَّجُلُ ٱلَّذِي يَمَسُّهُمْ يَتَسَلَّحُ بِحَدِيدٍ وَعَصَا رُمْحٍ، فَيَحْتَرِقُونَ بِٱلنَّارِ فِي مَكَانِهِمْ». ٧ 7
But the man that toucheth them Must be armed with iron and the staff of a spear: And they shall be utterly burned with fire in [their] place.
هَذِهِ أَسْمَاءُ ٱلْأَبْطَالِ ٱلَّذِينَ لِدَاوُدَ: يُشَيْبَ بَشَّبَثُ ٱلتَّحْكَمُونِيُّ رَئِيسُ ٱلثَّلَاثَةِ. هُوَ هَزَّ رُمْحَهُ عَلَى ثَمَانِ مِئَةٍ قَتَلَهُمْ دَفْعَةً وَاحِدَةً. ٨ 8
These are the names of the mighty men whom David had: Josheb-basshebeth a Tahchemonite, chief of the captains; the same was Adino the Eznite, against eight hundred slain at one time.
وَبَعْدَهُ أَلِعَازَارُ بْنُ دُودُو بْنِ أَخُوخِي، أَحَدُ ٱلثَّلَاثَةِ ٱلْأَبْطَالِ ٱلَّذِينَ كَانُوا مَعَ دَاوُدَ حِينَمَا عَيَّرُوا ٱلْفِلِسْطِينِيِّينَ ٱلَّذِينَ ٱجْتَمَعُوا هُنَاكَ لِلْحَرْبِ وَصَعِدَ رِجَالُ إِسْرَائِيلَ. ٩ 9
And after him was Eleazar the son of Dodai the son of an Ahohite, one of the three mighty men with David, when they defied the Philistines that were there gathered together to battle, and the men of Israel were gone away.
أَمَّا هُوَ فَأَقَامَ وَضَرَبَ ٱلْفِلِسْطِينِيِّينَ حَتَّى كَلَّتْ يَدُهُ، وَلَصِقَتْ يَدُهُ بِٱلسَّيْفِ، وَصَنَعَ ٱلرَّبُّ خَلَاصًا عَظِيمًا فِي ذَلِكَ ٱلْيَوْمِ، وَرَجَعَ ٱلشَّعْبُ وَرَاءَهُ لِلنَّهْبِ فَقَطْ. ١٠ 10
He arose, and smote the Philistines until his hand was weary, and his hand clave unto the sword; and Jehovah wrought a great victory that day; and the people returned after him only to take spoil.
وَبَعْدَهُ شَمَّةُ بْنُ أَجِي ٱلْهَرَارِيُّ. فَٱجْتَمَعَ ٱلْفِلِسْطِينِيُّونَ جَيْشًا، وَكَانَتْ هُنَاكَ قِطْعَةُ حَقْلٍ مَمْلُوءَةً عَدَسًا، فَهَرَبَ ٱلشَّعْبُ مِنْ أَمَامِ ٱلْفِلِسْطِينِيِّينَ. ١١ 11
And after him was Shammah the son of Agee a Hararite. And the Philistines were gathered together into a troop, where was a plot of ground full of lentils; and the people fled from the Philistines.
فَوَقَفَ فِي وَسَطِ ٱلْقِطْعَةِ وَأَنْقَذَهَا، وَضَرَبَ ٱلْفِلِسْطِينِيِّينَ، فَصَنَعَ ٱلرَّبُّ خَلَاصًا عَظِيمًا. ١٢ 12
But he stood in the midst of the plot, and defended it, and slew the Philistines; and Jehovah wrought a great victory.
وَنَزَلَ ٱلثَّلَاثَةُ مِنَ ٱلثَّلَاثِينَ رَئِيسًا وَأَتَوْا فِي ٱلْحَصَادِ إِلَى دَاوُدَ إِلَى مَغَارَةِ عَدُلَّامَ، وَجَيْشُ ٱلْفِلِسْطِينِيِّينَ نَازِلٌ فِي وَادِي ٱلرَّفَائِيِّينَ. ١٣ 13
And three of the thirty chief men went down, and came to David in the harvest time unto the cave of Adullam; and the troop of the Philistines was encamped in the valley of Rephaim.
وَكَانَ دَاوُدُ حِينَئِذٍ فِي ٱلْحِصْنِ، وَحَفَظَةُ ٱلْفِلِسْطِينِيِّينَ حِينَئِذٍ فِي بَيْتِ لَحْمٍ. ١٤ 14
And David was then in the stronghold; and the garrison of the Philistines was then in Beth-lehem.
فَتَأَوَّهَ دَاوُدُ وَقَالَ: «مَنْ يَسْقِينِي مَاءً مِنْ بِئْرِ بَيْتِ لَحْمٍ ٱلَّتِي عِنْدَ ٱلْبَابِ؟» ١٥ 15
And David longed, and said, Oh that one would give me water to drink of the well of Beth-lehem, which is by the gate!
فَشَقَّ ٱلْأَبْطَالُ ٱلثَّلَاثَةُ مَحَلَّةَ ٱلْفِلِسْطِينِيِّينَ وَٱسْتَقَوْا مَاءً مِنْ بِئْرِ بَيْتِ لَحْمٍ ٱلَّتِي عِنْدَ ٱلْبَابِ، وَحَمَلُوهُ وَأَتَوْا بِهِ إِلَى دَاوُدَ، فَلَمْ يَشَأْ أَنْ يَشْرَبَهُ، بَلْ سَكَبَهُ لِلرَّبِّ، ١٦ 16
And the three mighty men brake through the host of the Philistines, and drew water out of the well of Beth-lehem, that was by the gate, and took it, and brought it to David: but he would not drink thereof, but poured it out unto Jehovah.
وَقَالَ: «حَاشَا لِي يَارَبُّ أَنْ أَفْعَلَ ذَلِكَ! هَذَا دَمُ ٱلرِّجَالِ ٱلَّذِينَ خَاطَرُوا بِأَنْفُسِهِمْ». فَلَمْ يَشَأْ أَنْ يَشْرَبَهُ. هَذَا مَا فَعَلَهُ ٱلثَّلَاثَةُ ٱلْأَبْطَالُ. ١٧ 17
And he said, Be it far from me, O Jehovah, that I should do this: [shall I drink] the blood of the men that went in jeopardy of their lives? therefore he would not drink it. These things did the three mighty men.
وَأَبِيشَايُ أَخُو يُوآبَ ٱبْنُ صَرُويَةَ هُوَ رَئِيسُ ثَلَاثَةٍ. هَذَا هَزَّ رُمْحَهُ عَلَى ثَلَاثِ مِئَةٍ قَتَلَهُمْ، فَكَانَ لَهُ ٱسْمٌ بَيْنَ ٱلثَّلَاثَةِ. ١٨ 18
And Abishai, the brother of Joab, the son of Zeruiah, was chief of the three. And he lifted up his spear against three hundred and slew them, and had a name among the three.
أَلَمْ يُكْرَمْ عَلَى ٱلثَّلَاثَةِ فَكَانَ لَهُمْ رَئِيسًا، إِلَّا أَنَّهُ لَمْ يَصِلْ إِلَى ٱلثَّلَاثَةِ ٱلْأُوَلِ. ١٩ 19
Was he not most honorable of the three? therefore he was made their captain: howbeit he attained not unto the [first] three.
وَبَنَايَاهُو بْنُ يَهُويَادَاعَ، ٱبْنُ ذِي بَأْسٍ، كَثِيرُ ٱلْأَفْعَالِ، مِنْ قَبْصِئِيلَ، هُوَ ٱلَّذِي ضَرَبَ أَسَدَيْ مُوآبَ، وَهُوَ ٱلَّذِي نَزَلَ وَضَرَبَ أَسَدًا فِي وَسَطِ جُبٍّ يَوْمَ ٱلثَّلْجِ. ٢٠ 20
And Benaiah the son of Jehoiada, the son of a valiant man of Kabzeel, who had done mighty deeds, he slew the two [sons of] Ariel of Moab: he went down also and slew a lion in the midst of a pit in time of snow.
وَهُوَ ضَرَبَ رَجُلًا مِصْرِيًّا ذَا مَنْظَرٍ، وَكَانَ بِيَدِ ٱلْمِصْرِيِّ رُمْحٌ، فَنَزَلَ إِلَيْهِ بِعَصًا وَخَطَفَ ٱلرُّمْحَ مِنْ يَدِ ٱلْمِصْرِيِّ وَقَتَلَهُ بِرُمْحِهِ. ٢١ 21
And he slew an Egyptian, a goodly man: and the Egyptian had a spear in his hand; but he went down to him with a staff, and plucked the spear out of the Egyptian’s hand, and slew him with his own spear.
هَذَا مَا فَعَلَهُ بَنَايَاهُو بْنُ يَهُويَادَاعَ، فَكَانَ لَهُ ٱسْمٌ بَيْنَ ٱلثَّلَاثَةِ ٱلْأَبْطَالِ، ٢٢ 22
These things did Benaiah the son of Jehoiada, and had a name among the three mighty men.
وَأُكْرِمَ عَلَى ٱلثَّلَاثِينَ، إِلَا أَنَّهُ لَمْ يَصِلْ إِلَى ٱلثَّلَاثَةِ. فَجَعَلَهُ دَاوُدُ مِنْ أَصْحَابِ سِرِّهِ. ٢٣ 23
He was more honorable than the thirty, but he attained not to the [first] three. And David set him over his guard.
وَعَسَائِيلُ أَخُو يُوآبَ كَانَ مِنَ ٱلثَّلَاثِينَ، وَأَلْحَانَانُ بْنُ دُودُو مِنْ بَيْتِ لَحْمٍ. ٢٤ 24
