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 says, the man whom God raised up, the anointed of the God of Jacob, the sweet psalmist of Israel:
رُوحُ ٱلرَّبِّ تَكَلَّمَ بِي وَكَلِمَتُهُ عَلَى لِسَانِي. ٢ 2
"The Spirit of the LORD spoke by me. His word was on 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 spoke to me, 'One who rules over men righteously, who rules in the fear of God,
وَكَنُورِ ٱلصَّبَاحِ إِذَا أَشْرَقَتِ ٱلشَّمْسُ. كَعُشْبٍ مِنَ ٱلْأَرْضِ فِي صَبَاحٍ صَحْوٍ مُضِيءٍ غِبَّ ٱلْمَطَرِ. ٤ 4
shall be as the light of the morning, when the sun rises, a morning without clouds, when the tender grass springs 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
Most certainly my house is not so with God, yet he has made with me an everlasting covenant, ordered in all things, and sure, for it is all my salvation, and all my desire, although he doesn't make it grow.
وَلَكِنَّ بَنِي بَلِيَّعَالَ جَمِيعَهُمْ كَشَوْكٍ مَطْرُوحٍ، لِأَنَّهُمْ لَا يُؤْخَذُونَ بِيَدٍ. ٦ 6
But all of the ungodly shall be as thorns to be thrust away, because they can't be taken with the hand,
وَٱلرَّجُلُ ٱلَّذِي يَمَسُّهُمْ يَتَسَلَّحُ بِحَدِيدٍ وَعَصَا رُمْحٍ، فَيَحْتَرِقُونَ بِٱلنَّارِ فِي مَكَانِهِمْ». ٧ 7
But the man who touches them must be armed with iron and the staff of a spear. 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 warriors whom David had: Jeshbaal son of the Hachmonite, leader of the Three. He wielded his spear against eight hundred whom he killed 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
After him was Eleazar son of Dodo, the Ahohite, one of the Three warriors. He was with David in Pas Dammim when they defied the Philistines who were gathered there for battle, and the men of Israel had retreated.
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 struck the Philistines until his hand was weary, and his hand froze to the sword; and the LORD worked 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
After him was Shamma the son of Agee the Hararite. The Philistines were gathered together at Lehi, where there 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 killed the Philistines; and the LORD worked 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 to the cave of Adullam; and the troop of the Philistines was camped in the Valley of Rephaim.
وَكَانَ دَاوُدُ حِينَئِذٍ فِي ٱلْحِصْنِ، وَحَفَظَةُ ٱلْفِلِسْطِينِيِّينَ حِينَئِذٍ فِي بَيْتِ لَحْمٍ. ١٤ 14
David was then in the stronghold; and the garrison of the Philistines was then in Bethlehem.
فَتَأَوَّهَ دَاوُدُ وَقَالَ: «مَنْ يَسْقِينِي مَاءً مِنْ بِئْرِ بَيْتِ لَحْمٍ ٱلَّتِي عِنْدَ ٱلْبَابِ؟» ١٥ 15
And David had a craving and said, "Oh that one would give me water to drink of the well of Bethlehem, 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
The Three warriors broke through the army of the Philistines, and drew water out of the well of Bethlehem, that was by the gate, and took it, and brought it to David: but he would not drink of it, but poured it out to 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
He said, "Far be it from me, LORD, that I should do this. Shall I drink the blood of the men who went in jeopardy of their lives?" Therefore he would not drink it. The Three warriors did these things.
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 leader of the Thirty. And he wielded his spear against three hundred and killed them, and had a name beside the Three.
أَلَمْ يُكْرَمْ عَلَى ٱلثَّلَاثَةِ فَكَانَ لَهُمْ رَئِيسًا، إِلَّا أَنَّهُ لَمْ يَصِلْ إِلَى ٱلثَّلَاثَةِ ٱلْأُوَلِ. ١٩ 19
He was the most illustrious of the Thirty, and he became their leader. However he did not attain to the 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
Benaiah the son of Jehoiada was a valiant man of Kabzeel, who performed great deeds. He killed the two sons of Ariel of Moab. He also went down and killed 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
He killed an Egyptian, a man of great stature. And the Egyptian had a spear in his hand; but he went down to him with a staff, and grabbed the spear out of the Egyptian's hand, and killed him with his own spear.
هَذَا مَا فَعَلَهُ بَنَايَاهُو بْنُ يَهُويَادَاعَ، فَكَانَ لَهُ ٱسْمٌ بَيْنَ ٱلثَّلَاثَةِ ٱلْأَبْطَالِ، ٢٢ 22
Benaiah the son of Jehoiada did these things, and had a name among the Three warriors.
وَأُكْرِمَ عَلَى ٱلثَّلَاثِينَ، إِلَا أَنَّهُ لَمْ يَصِلْ إِلَى ٱلثَّلَاثَةِ. فَجَعَلَهُ دَاوُدُ مِنْ أَصْحَابِ سِرِّهِ. ٢٣ 23
He was more honored than the Thirty, but he did not attain to the Three. David set him over his guard.
وَعَسَائِيلُ أَخُو يُوآبَ كَانَ مِنَ ٱلثَّلَاثِينَ، وَأَلْحَانَانُ بْنُ دُودُو مِنْ بَيْتِ لَحْمٍ. ٢٤ 24
