1 And Chiram king of Tyre sent messengers to David, and cedar timbers, and masons, and carpenters, to build a house for him. 2 And David knew that the Lord [had] designed him to be king over Israel; because his kingdom was highly exalted, on account of his people Israel. 3 And David took more wives in Jerusalem: and there were born to David more sons and daughters. 4 And these [are] the names of those that were born, who were [born] to him in Jerusalem; Samaa, Sobab, Nathan, and Solomon, 5 and Baar, and Elisa, and Eliphaleth, 6 and Nageth, and Naphath, and Japhie, 7 and Elisamae, and Eliade, and Eliphala. 8 And the Philistines heard that David was anointed king over all Israel: and all the Philistines went up to seek David; and David heard [it], and went out to meet them. 9 And the Philistines came and assembled together in the giants’ valley. 10 And David enquired of God, saying, Shall I go up against the Philistines? and wilt thou deliver them into my hand? And the Lord said to him, Go up, and I will deliver them into thy hands. 11 And he went up to Baal Pharasin, and David smote them there; and David said, God has broken through enemies by my hand like a breach of water: therefore he called the name of that place, the Breach of Pharasin. 12 And the Philistines left their gods there; and David gave orders to burn them with fire. 13 And the Philistines once more assembled themselves in the giants’ valley. 14 And David enquired of God again; and God said to him, Thou shalt not go after them; turn away from them, and thou shalt come upon them near the pear trees. 15 And it shall be, when thou shalt hear the sound of their tumult in the tops of the pear trees, then thou shalt go into the battle: for God has gone out before thee to smite the army of the Philistines. 16 And he did as God commanded him: and he smote the army of the Philistines from Gabaon to Gazera. 17 And the name of David was [famous] in all the land; and the Lord put the terror of him on all the nations. ΚΑΙ ἀπέστειλε Χιρὰμ βασιλεὺς Τύρου ἀγγέλους πρὸς Δαυὶδ καὶ ξύλα κέδρινα καὶ οἰκοδόμους καὶ τέκτονας ξύλων τοῦ οἰκοδομῆσαι αὐτῷ οἶκον. 2 καὶ ἔγνω Δαυὶδ ὅτι ἡτοίμασεν αὐτὸν Κύριος εἰς βασιλέα ἐπὶ ᾿Ισραήλ, ὅτι ηὐξήθη εἰς ὕψος ἡ βασιλεία αὐτοῦ διὰ τὸν λαὸν αὐτοῦ ᾿Ισραήλ. 3 Καὶ ἔλαβε Δαυὶδ ἔτι γυναῖκας ἐν ῾Ιερουσαλήμ, καὶ ἐτέχθησαν Δαυὶδ ἔτι υἱοὶ καὶ θυγατέρες. 4 καὶ ταῦτα τὰ ὀνόματα αὐτῶν τῶν τεχθέντων, οἳ ἦσαν αὐτῷ ἐν ῾Ιερουσαλήμ· Σαμαά, Σωβάβ, Νάθαν καὶ Σαλωμὼν 5 καὶ ᾿Ιβαὰρ καὶ ᾿Ελισαὲ καὶ ᾿Ελιφαλὲτ 6 καὶ Ναγὲθ καὶ Ναφὰγ καὶ ᾿Ιαφιὲ 7 καὶ ᾿Ελισαμαὲ καὶ ᾿Ελιαδὲ καὶ ᾿Ελιφαλέτ. 8 Καὶ ἤκουσαν ἀλλόφυλοι ὅτι ἐχρίσθη Δαυὶδ βασιλεὺς ἐπὶ πάντα ᾿Ισραήλ, καὶ ἀνέβησαν πάντες οἱ ἀλλόφυλοι ζητῆσαι τὸν Δαυίδ· καὶ ἤκουσε Δαυὶδ καὶ ἐξῆλθεν εἰς ἀπάντησιν αὐτοῖς. 9 καὶ ἀλλόφυλοι ἦλθον καὶ συνέπεσον ἐν τῇ κοιλάδι τῶν γιγάντων. 10 καὶ ἐπηρώτησε Δαυὶδ διὰ τοῦ Θεοῦ λέγων· εἰ ἀναβῶ ἐπὶ τοὺς ἀλλοφύλους καὶ δώσεις αὐτοὺς εἰς τὰς χεῖράς μου; καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῷ Κύριος· ἀνάβηθι, καὶ δώσω αὐτοὺς εἰς τὰς χεῖράς σου. 11 καὶ ἀνέβη εἰς Βαὰλ Φαρασὶν καὶ ἐπάταξεν αὐτοὺς ἐκεῖ Δαυίδ· καὶ εἶπε Δαυίδ· διέκοψεν ὁ Θεὸς τοὺς ἐχθρούς μου ἐν χειρί μου ὡς διακοπὴν ὕδατος· διὰ τοῦτο ἐκάλεσε τὸ ὄνομα τοῦ τόπου ἐκείνου Διακοπὴ Φαρασίν. 12 καὶ ἐγκατέλιπον ἐκεῖ τοὺς θεοὺς αὐτῶν οἱ ἀλλόφυλοι, καὶ εἶπε Δαυὶδ κατακαῦσαι αὐτοὺς ἐν πυρί. 13 καὶ προσέθεντο ἔτι ἀλλόφυλοι καὶ συνέπεσαν ἔτι ἐν τῇ κοιλάδι τῶν γιγάντων. 14 καὶ ἠρώτησε Δαυὶδ ἔτι ἐν Θεῷ, καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῷ ὁ Θεός· οὐ πορεύσῃ ὀπίσω αὐτῶν, ἀποστρέφου ἀπ᾿ αὐτῶν καὶ παρέσῃ αὐτοῖς πλησίον τῶν ἀπίων· 15 καὶ ἔσται ἐν τῷ ἀκοῦσαί σε τὴν φωνὴν τοῦ συσσεισμοῦ τῶν ἄκρων τῶν ἀπίων, τότε εἰσελεύσῃ εἰς τὸν πόλεμον, ὅτι ἐξῆλθεν ὁ Θεὸς ἔμπροσθέν σου τοῦ πατάξαι τὴν παρεμβολὴν τῶν ἀλλοφύλων. 16 καὶ ἐποίησε καθὼς ἐνετείλατο αὐτῷ ὁ Θεός, καὶ ἐπάταξε τὴν παρεμβολὴν τῶν ἀλλοφύλων ἀπὸ Γαβαὼν ἕως Γαζηρά. 17 καὶ ἐγένετο ὄνομα Δαυὶδ ἐν πάσῃ τῇ γῇ, καὶ Κύριος ἔδωκε τὸν φόβον αὐτοῦ ἐπὶ πάντα τὰ ἔθνη.
