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
And these [are] the last words of David. Faithful [is] David the son of Jessae, and faithful the man whom the Lord raised up to be the anointed of the God of Jacob, and beautiful [are] the psalms of Israel.
رُوحُ ٱلرَّبِّ تَكَلَّمَ بِي وَكَلِمَتُهُ عَلَى لِسَانِي. ٢ 2
The Spirit of the Lord spoke 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 says, A watchman out of Israel spoke to me a parable: I said among men, How will ye strengthen the fear of the anointed?
وَكَنُورِ ٱلصَّبَاحِ إِذَا أَشْرَقَتِ ٱلشَّمْسُ. كَعُشْبٍ مِنَ ٱلْأَرْضِ فِي صَبَاحٍ صَحْوٍ مُضِيءٍ غِبَّ ٱلْمَطَرِ. ٤ 4
And in the morning light of God, let the sun arise in the morning, from the light of which the Lord passed on, and as it were from the rain of the tender grass upon the earth.
أَلَيْسَ هَكَذَا بَيْتِي عِنْدَ ٱللهِ؟ لِأَنَّهُ وَضَعَ لِي عَهْدًا أَبَدِيًّا مُتْقَنًا فِي كُلِّ شَيْءٍ وَمَحْفُوظًا، أَفَلَا يُثْبِتُ كُلَّ خَلَاصِي وَكُلَّ مَسَرَّتِي؟ ٥ 5
For my house [is] not so with the Mighty One: for he has made an everlasting covenant with me, ready, guarded at every time; for all my salvation and all my desire [is], that the wicked should not flourish.
وَلَكِنَّ بَنِي بَلِيَّعَالَ جَمِيعَهُمْ كَشَوْكٍ مَطْرُوحٍ، لِأَنَّهُمْ لَا يُؤْخَذُونَ بِيَدٍ. ٦ 6
All these [are] as a thorn thrust forth, for they shall not be taken with the hand,
وَٱلرَّجُلُ ٱلَّذِي يَمَسُّهُمْ يَتَسَلَّحُ بِحَدِيدٍ وَعَصَا رُمْحٍ، فَيَحْتَرِقُونَ بِٱلنَّارِ فِي مَكَانِهِمْ». ٧ 7
and a man shall not labour among them; and [one shall have] that which is fully armed with iron, and the staff of a spear, an he shall burn them with fire, and they shall be burnt in their shame.
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 of David: Jebosthe the Chananite is a captain of the third [part]: Adinon the Asonite, he drew his sword against eight hundred soldiers at once.
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 Eleanan the son of his uncle, son of Dudi who was among the three mighty men with David; and when he defied the Philistines they were gathered there to war, and the men of Israel went up.
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 an smote the Philistines, until his hand was weary, and his hand clave to the sword: and the Lord wrought a great salvation in that day, and the people rested behind him only to strip [the slain].
وَبَعْدَهُ شَمَّةُ بْنُ أَجِي ٱلْهَرَارِيُّ. فَٱجْتَمَعَ ٱلْفِلِسْطِينِيُّونَ جَيْشًا، وَكَانَتْ هُنَاكَ قِطْعَةُ حَقْلٍ مَمْلُوءَةً عَدَسًا، فَهَرَبَ ٱلشَّعْبُ مِنْ أَمَامِ ٱلْفِلِسْطِينِيِّينَ. ١١ 11
And after him Samaia the son of Asa the Arachite: and the Philistines were gathered to Theria; and there was there a portion of ground full of lentiles; and the people fled before the Philistines.
فَوَقَفَ فِي وَسَطِ ٱلْقِطْعَةِ وَأَنْقَذَهَا، وَضَرَبَ ٱلْفِلِسْطِينِيِّينَ، فَصَنَعَ ٱلرَّبُّ خَلَاصًا عَظِيمًا. ١٢ 12
And he stood firm in the midst of the portion, and rescued it, and smote the Philistines; and the Lord wrought a great deliverance.
وَنَزَلَ ٱلثَّلَاثَةُ مِنَ ٱلثَّلَاثِينَ رَئِيسًا وَأَتَوْا فِي ٱلْحَصَادِ إِلَى دَاوُدَ إِلَى مَغَارَةِ عَدُلَّامَ، وَجَيْشُ ٱلْفِلِسْطِينِيِّينَ نَازِلٌ فِي وَادِي ٱلرَّفَائِيِّينَ. ١٣ 13
And three out of the thirty went down, and came to Cason to David, to the cave of Odollam; and [there was] an army of the Philistines, and they encamped in the valley of Raphain.
وَكَانَ دَاوُدُ حِينَئِذٍ فِي ٱلْحِصْنِ، وَحَفَظَةُ ٱلْفِلِسْطِينِيِّينَ حِينَئِذٍ فِي بَيْتِ لَحْمٍ. ١٤ 14
And David [was] then in the strong hold, and the garrison of the Philistines [was] then in Bethleem.
فَتَأَوَّهَ دَاوُدُ وَقَالَ: «مَنْ يَسْقِينِي مَاءً مِنْ بِئْرِ بَيْتِ لَحْمٍ ٱلَّتِي عِنْدَ ٱلْبَابِ؟» ١٥ 15
And David longed, and said, Who will give me water to drink out of the well that is in Bethleem by the gate? now the band of the Philistines [was] then in Bethleem.
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 broke through the host of the Philistines, and drew water out of the well that was in Bethleem in the gate: and they took it, and brought it to David, and he would not drink it, but poured it out before the Lord.
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, O Lord, forbid that I should do this, that I should drink of the blood of the men who went at [the risk of] their lives: and he would not drink it. These things did these 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 Abessa the brother of Joab the son of Saruia, he [was] chief among the three, and he lifted up his spear against three hundred whom he slew; and he had a name among three.
أَلَمْ يُكْرَمْ عَلَى ٱلثَّلَاثَةِ فَكَانَ لَهُمْ رَئِيسًا، إِلَّا أَنَّهُ لَمْ يَصِلْ إِلَى ٱلثَّلَاثَةِ ٱلْأُوَلِ. ١٩ 19
Of those three [he was] most honourable, and he became a chief over them, but he reached not to 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 Banaeas the son of Jodae, he was abundant in [mighty] deeds, from Cabeseel, and he smote the two sons of Ariel of Moab: and he went down and smote a lion in the midst of a pit on a snowy day.
وَهُوَ ضَرَبَ رَجُلًا مِصْرِيًّا ذَا مَنْظَرٍ، وَكَانَ بِيَدِ ٱلْمِصْرِيِّ رُمْحٌ، فَنَزَلَ إِلَيْهِ بِعَصًا وَخَطَفَ ٱلرُّمْحَ مِنْ يَدِ ٱلْمِصْرِيِّ وَقَتَلَهُ بِرُمْحِهِ. ٢١ 21
He smote an Egyptian, a wonderful man, and in the hand of the Egyptian [was] a spear as the side of a ladder; and he went down to him with a staff, and snatched the spear from 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 Banaeas the son of Jodae, and he 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 honourable among the [second] three, but he reached not to the [first] three: and David made him his reporter. And these [are] the names of King David's mighty men.
وَعَسَائِيلُ أَخُو يُوآبَ كَانَ مِنَ ٱلثَّلَاثِينَ، وَأَلْحَانَانُ بْنُ دُودُو مِنْ بَيْتِ لَحْمٍ. ٢٤ 24
