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 son of Jesse, the man who was highly honored, the one anointed by the God of Jacob, the sweet psalmist of Israel.
رُوحُ ٱلرَّبِّ تَكَلَّمَ بِي وَكَلِمَتُهُ عَلَى لِسَانِي. ٢ 2
“The Spirit of Yahweh spoke by me, and 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 spoke, the Rock of Israel said to me, 'The one who rules righteously over men, who rules in the fear of God.
وَكَنُورِ ٱلصَّبَاحِ إِذَا أَشْرَقَتِ ٱلشَّمْسُ. كَعُشْبٍ مِنَ ٱلْأَرْضِ فِي صَبَاحٍ صَحْوٍ مُضِيءٍ غِبَّ ٱلْمَطَرِ. ٤ 4
He will be like the morning light when the sun rises, a morning without clouds, when the tender grass springs up from the earth through bright sunshine 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
Indeed, is my family not like this before God? Has he not made an everlasting covenant with me, ordered and sure in every way? Does he not increase my salvation and fulfill my every desire?
وَلَكِنَّ بَنِي بَلِيَّعَالَ جَمِيعَهُمْ كَشَوْكٍ مَطْرُوحٍ، لِأَنَّهُمْ لَا يُؤْخَذُونَ بِيَدٍ. ٦ 6
But the worthless will all be like thorns to be thrown away, because they cannot be gathered by one's hands.
وَٱلرَّجُلُ ٱلَّذِي يَمَسُّهُمْ يَتَسَلَّحُ بِحَدِيدٍ وَعَصَا رُمْحٍ، فَيَحْتَرِقُونَ بِٱلنَّارِ فِي مَكَانِهِمْ». ٧ 7
The man who touches them must use an iron tool or the shaft of a spear. They must be burned up where they lie.'”
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 David's mighty men: Jeshbaal the Hachmonite was the leader of the mighty men. He killed eight hundred men on one occasion.
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 Dodai the Ahohite, one of the three mighty men. He was with David when they taunted the Philistines who had gathered together to do battle, and when 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
Eleazar stood and fought the Philistines until his hand became weary and his hand stiffened to the grip of his sword. Yahweh brought about a great victory that day. The army returned after Eleazar, only to strip the bodies.
وَبَعْدَهُ شَمَّةُ بْنُ أَجِي ٱلْهَرَارِيُّ. فَٱجْتَمَعَ ٱلْفِلِسْطِينِيُّونَ جَيْشًا، وَكَانَتْ هُنَاكَ قِطْعَةُ حَقْلٍ مَمْلُوءَةً عَدَسًا، فَهَرَبَ ٱلشَّعْبُ مِنْ أَمَامِ ٱلْفِلِسْطِينِيِّينَ. ١١ 11
After him was Shammah son of Agee, a Hararite. The Philistines gathered together where there was a field of lentils, and the army fled from them.
فَوَقَفَ فِي وَسَطِ ٱلْقِطْعَةِ وَأَنْقَذَهَا، وَضَرَبَ ٱلْفِلِسْطِينِيِّينَ، فَصَنَعَ ٱلرَّبُّ خَلَاصًا عَظِيمًا. ١٢ 12
But Shammah stood in the middle of the field and defended it. He killed the Philistines, and Yahweh brought about a great victory.
وَنَزَلَ ٱلثَّلَاثَةُ مِنَ ٱلثَّلَاثِينَ رَئِيسًا وَأَتَوْا فِي ٱلْحَصَادِ إِلَى دَاوُدَ إِلَى مَغَارَةِ عَدُلَّامَ، وَجَيْشُ ٱلْفِلِسْطِينِيِّينَ نَازِلٌ فِي وَادِي ٱلرَّفَائِيِّينَ. ١٣ 13
Three of the thirty soldiers went down to David at harvest time, to the cave of Adullam. The army of the Philistines was camped in the Valley of Rephaim.
وَكَانَ دَاوُدُ حِينَئِذٍ فِي ٱلْحِصْنِ، وَحَفَظَةُ ٱلْفِلِسْطِينِيِّينَ حِينَئِذٍ فِي بَيْتِ لَحْمٍ. ١٤ 14
At that time David was in his stronghold, a cave, while the Philistines had established at Bethlehem.
فَتَأَوَّهَ دَاوُدُ وَقَالَ: «مَنْ يَسْقِينِي مَاءً مِنْ بِئْرِ بَيْتِ لَحْمٍ ٱلَّتِي عِنْدَ ٱلْبَابِ؟» ١٥ 15
David was longing for water and said, “If only someone would give me water to drink from the well at Bethlehem, the well that 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
So these three mighty men broke through the army of the Philistines and drew water out of the well of Bethlehem, the well at the gate. They took the water and brought it to David, but he refused to drink it. Instead, he poured it out to Yahweh.
وَقَالَ: «حَاشَا لِي يَارَبُّ أَنْ أَفْعَلَ ذَلِكَ! هَذَا دَمُ ٱلرِّجَالِ ٱلَّذِينَ خَاطَرُوا بِأَنْفُسِهِمْ». فَلَمْ يَشَأْ أَنْ يَشْرَبَهُ. هَذَا مَا فَعَلَهُ ٱلثَّلَاثَةُ ٱلْأَبْطَالُ. ١٧ 17
Then he said, “Yahweh, far be it from me, that I should do this. Should I drink the blood of men who have risked their lives?” So he refused to drink it. These things were done by the three mighty.
وَأَبِيشَايُ أَخُو يُوآبَ ٱبْنُ صَرُويَةَ هُوَ رَئِيسُ ثَلَاثَةٍ. هَذَا هَزَّ رُمْحَهُ عَلَى ثَلَاثِ مِئَةٍ قَتَلَهُمْ، فَكَانَ لَهُ ٱسْمٌ بَيْنَ ٱلثَّلَاثَةِ. ١٨ 18
Abishai, brother of Joab and son of Zeruiah, was captain over the three. He once fought with his spear against three hundred men and killed them. He was often mentioned along with the three soldiers.
أَلَمْ يُكْرَمْ عَلَى ٱلثَّلَاثَةِ فَكَانَ لَهُمْ رَئِيسًا، إِلَّا أَنَّهُ لَمْ يَصِلْ إِلَى ٱلثَّلَاثَةِ ٱلْأُوَلِ. ١٩ 19
Was he not even more famous than the three? He was made their captain. However, his fame did not equal the fame of the three most famous soldiers.
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 from Kabzeel was the son of Jehoiada; he was a strong man who did mighty feats. He killed the two sons of Ariel of Moab. He also went down into a pit and killed a lion while it was snowing.
وَهُوَ ضَرَبَ رَجُلًا مِصْرِيًّا ذَا مَنْظَرٍ، وَكَانَ بِيَدِ ٱلْمِصْرِيِّ رُمْحٌ، فَنَزَلَ إِلَيْهِ بِعَصًا وَخَطَفَ ٱلرُّمْحَ مِنْ يَدِ ٱلْمِصْرِيِّ وَقَتَلَهُ بِرُمْحِهِ. ٢١ 21
Then he killed a very large Egyptian man. The Egyptian had a spear in his hand, but Benaiah fought against him with only a staff. He seized the spear out of the Egyptian's hand and then killed him with his own spear.
هَذَا مَا فَعَلَهُ بَنَايَاهُو بْنُ يَهُويَادَاعَ، فَكَانَ لَهُ ٱسْمٌ بَيْنَ ٱلثَّلَاثَةِ ٱلْأَبْطَالِ، ٢٢ 22
Benaiah son of Jehoiada did these feats, and he was named alongside the three mighty men.
وَأُكْرِمَ عَلَى ٱلثَّلَاثِينَ، إِلَا أَنَّهُ لَمْ يَصِلْ إِلَى ٱلثَّلَاثَةِ. فَجَعَلَهُ دَاوُدُ مِنْ أَصْحَابِ سِرِّهِ. ٢٣ 23
He was more highly regarded than the thirty soldiers in general, but he was not regarded quite as highly as the three mighty men. Yet David put him in charge of his bodyguard.
وَعَسَائِيلُ أَخُو يُوآبَ كَانَ مِنَ ٱلثَّلَاثِينَ، وَأَلْحَانَانُ بْنُ دُودُو مِنْ بَيْتِ لَحْمٍ. ٢٤ 24
