1 And it came to pass after this, [that] Naas the king of the children of Ammon died, and Anan his son reigned in his stead. 2 And David said, I will act kindly toward Anan the son of Naas, as his father acted kindly towards me. And David sent messengers to condole with him on the death of his father. So the servants of David came into the land of the children of Ammon to Anan, to comfort him. 3 And the chiefs of the children of Ammon said to Anan, Is it to honour thy father before thee, that David has sent comforters to thee? Have not his servants come to thee that they might search the city, and to spy out the land? 4 And Anan took the servants of David, and shaved them, and cut off the half of their garments as far as their tunic, and sent them away. 5 And there came men to report to David concerning the men: and he sent to meet them, for they were greatly disgraced: and the king said, Dwell in Jericho until your beards have grown, and return. 6 And the children of Ammon saw that the people of David were ashamed, and Anan and the children of Ammon sent a thousand talents of silver to hire for themselves chariots and horsemen out of Syria of Mesopotamia, and out of Syria Maacha, and from Sobal. 7 And they hired for themselves two and thirty thousand chariots, and the king of Maacha and his people; and they came and encamped before Medaba: and the children of Ammon assembled out of their cities, and came to fight. 8 And David heard, and sent Joab and all the host of mighty men. 9 And the children of Ammon came forth, and set themselves in array for battle by the gate of the city: and the kings that were come forth encamped by themselves in the plain. 10 And Joab saw that they were fronting [him] to fight against him before and behind, and he chose [some] out of all the young men of Israel, and they set themselves in array against the Syrian. 11 And the rest of the people he gave into the hand of his brother Abesai, and they set themselves in array against the children of Ammon. 12 And he said, If the Syrian should prevail against me, then shalt thou deliver me: and if the children of Ammon should prevail against thee, then will I deliver thee. 13 Be of good courage, and let us be strong, for our people, and for the cities of our God: and the Lord shall do what [is] good in his eyes. 14 So Joab and the people that were with him set themselves in battle array against the Syrians, and they fled from them. 15 And the children of Ammon saw that the Syrians fled, and they also fled from before Abesai, and from before Joab his brother, and they came to the city: and Joab came to Jerusalem. 16 And the Syrian saw that Israel had defeated him, and he sent messengers, and they brought out the Syrians from beyond the river; and Sophath the commander-in-chief of the forces of Adraazar [was] before them. 17 And it was told David; and he gathered all Israel, and crossed over Jordan, and came upon them, and set the battle in array against them. So David set [his army] in array to fight against the Syrians, and they fought against him. 18 And the Syrians fled from before Israel; and David slew of the Syrians seven thousand [riders in] chariots, and forty thousand infantry, and he slew Sophath the commander-in-chief of the forces. 19 And the servants of Adraazar saw that they were defeated before Israel, and they made peace with David and served him: and the Syrians would not any more help the children of Ammon. ΚΑΙ ἐγένετο μετὰ ταῦτα ἀπέθανε Ναὰς βασιλεὺς υἱῶν ᾿Αμμών, καὶ ἐβασίλευσεν ᾿Ανὰν υἱὸς αὐτοῦ ἀντ᾿ αὐτοῦ. 2 καὶ εἶπε Δαυίδ· ποιήσω ἔλεος μετὰ ᾿Ανὰν υἱοῦ Ναάς, ὡς ἐποίησεν ὁ πατὴρ αὐτοῦ μετ᾿ ἐμοῦ ἔλεος· καὶ ἀπέστειλεν ἀγγέλους Δαυὶδ τοῦ παρακαλέσαι αὐτὸν περὶ τοῦ πατρὸς αὐτοῦ. καὶ ἦλθον παῖδες Δαυὶδ εἰς γῆν υἱῶν ᾿Αμμὼν πρὸς ᾿Ανὰν τοῦ παρακαλέσαι αὐτόν. 3 καὶ εἶπον ἄρχοντες υἱῶν ᾿Αμμὼν πρὸς ᾿Ανάν· μὴ δοξάζων Δαυὶδ τὸν πατέρα σου ἐναντίον σου ἀπέστειλέ σοι παρακαλοῦντας; οὐχὶ ὅπως ἐξερευνήσωσι τὴν πόλιν καὶ τοῦ κατασκοπῆσαι τὴν γῆν ἦλθον παῖδες αὐτοῦ πρός σε; 4 καὶ ἔλαβεν ᾿Ανὰν τοὺς παῖδας Δαυὶδ καὶ ἐξύρησεν αὐτοὺς καὶ ἀφεῖλε τῶν μανδυῶν αὐτῶν τὸ ἥμισυ ἕως τῆς ἀναβολῆς καὶ ἀπέστειλεν αὐτούς. 5 καὶ ἦλθον ἀπαγγεῖλαι τῷ Δαυὶδ περὶ τῶν ἀνδρῶν, καὶ ἀπέστειλεν εἰς ἀπάντησιν αὐτοῖς, ὅτι ἦσαν ἠτιμωμένοι σφόδρα. καὶ εἶπεν ὁ βασιλεύς· καθίσατε ἐν ῾Ιεριχὼ ἕως τοῦ ἀνατεῖλαι τοὺς πώγωνας ὑμῶν καὶ ἀνακάμψατε. 6 καὶ εἶδον οἱ υἱοὶ ᾿Αμμὼν ὅτι ᾐσχύνθη λαὸς Δαυίδ, καὶ ἀπέστειλεν ᾿Ανὰν καὶ υἱοὶ ᾿Αμμὼν χίλια τάλαντα ἀργυρίου τοῦ μισθώσασθαι ἑαυτοῖς ἐκ Συρίας Μεσοποταμίας καὶ ἐκ Συρίας Μοοχὰ καὶ παρὰ Σωβὰ ἅρματα καὶ ἱππεῖς. 7 καὶ ἐμισθώσαντο ἑαυτοῖς δύο καὶ τριάκοντα χιλιάδας ἁρμάτων καὶ τὸν βασιλέα Μοοχὰ καὶ τὸν λαὸν αὐτοῦ καὶ ἦλθον καὶ παρενέβαλον κατέναντι Μαιδαβά, καὶ οἱ υἱοὶ ᾿Αμμὼν συνήχθησαν ἐκ τῶν πόλεων αὐτῶν καὶ ἦλθον εἰς τὸ πολεμῆσαι. 8 καὶ ἤκουσε Δαυὶδ καὶ ἀπέστειλε τὸν ᾿Ιωὰβ καὶ πᾶσαν τὴν στρατιὰν τῶν δυνατῶν. 9 καὶ ἐξῆλθον οἱ υἱοὶ ᾿Αμμὼν καὶ παρατάσσονται εἰς πόλεμον παρὰ τὸν πυλῶνα τῆς πόλεως, καὶ οἱ βασιλεῖς οἱ ἐλθόντες παρενέβαλον καθ᾿ ἑαυτοὺς ἐν τῷ πεδίῳ. 10 καὶ εἶδεν ᾿Ιωὰβ ὅτι γεγόνασιν ἀντιπρόσωποι τοῦ πολεμεῖν πρὸς αὐτὸν κατὰ πρόσωπον καὶ ἐξόπισθεν, καὶ ἐξελέξατο ἐκ παντὸς νεανίου ἐξ ᾿Ισραήλ, καὶ παρετάξαντο ἐναντίον τοῦ Σύρου· 11 καὶ τὸ κατάλοιπον τοῦ λαοῦ ἔδωκεν ἐν χειρὶ ᾿Αβεσσὰ ἀδελφοῦ αὐτοῦ, καὶ παρετάξαντο ἐξεναντίας υἱῶν ᾿Αμμών. 12 καὶ εἶπεν· ἐὰν κρατήσῃ ὑπὲρ ἐμὲ ὁ Σύρος, καὶ ἔσῃ μοι εἰς σωτηρίαν, καὶ ἐὰν οἱ υἱοὶ ᾿Αμμὼν κρατήσωσιν ὑπὲρ σέ, καὶ σώσω σε· 13 ἀνδρίζου καὶ ἐνισχύσωμεν περὶ τοῦ λαοῦ ἡμῶν καὶ περὶ τῶν πόλεων τοῦ Θεοῦ ἡμῶν, καὶ Κύριος τὸ ἀγαθὸν ἐν ὀφθαλμοῖς αὐτοῦ ποιήσει. 14 καὶ παρετάξατο ᾿Ιωὰβ καὶ ὁ λαὸς ὁ μετ᾿ αὐτοῦ κατέναντι Σύρων εἰς πόλεμον, καὶ ἔφυγον ἀπ᾿ αὐτῶν. 15 καὶ οἱ υἱοὶ ᾿Αμμὼν εἶδον ὅτι ἔφυγον οἱ Σύροι, καὶ ἔφυγον καὶ αὐτοὶ ἀπὸ προσώπου ᾿Αβεσσὰ καὶ ἀπὸ προσώπου ᾿Ιωὰβ τοῦ ἀδελφοῦ αὐτοῦ καὶ ἦλθον εἰς τὴν πόλιν. καὶ ἦλθεν ᾿Ιωὰβ εἰς ῾Ιερουσαλήμ. 16 καὶ εἶδεν ὁ Σύρος ὅτι ἐτροπώσατο αὐτὸν ᾿Ισραήλ, καὶ ἀπέστειλεν ἀγγέλους, καὶ ἐξήγαγον τὸν Σύρον ἐκ τοῦ πέραν τοῦ ποταμοῦ, καὶ Σωφὰ ἀρχιστράτηγος δυνάμεως ᾿Αδρααζὰρ ἔμπροσθεν αὐτῶν. 17 καὶ ἀπηγγέλη τῷ Δαυίδ, καὶ συνήγαγε τὸν πάντα ᾿Ισραὴλ καὶ διέβη τὸν ᾿Ιορδάνην καὶ ἦλθεν ἐπ᾿ αὐτοὺς καὶ παρετάξατο ἐπ᾿ αὐτούς, καὶ παρατάσσεται Σύρος ἐξεναντίας Δαυὶδ εἰς πόλεμον καὶ ἐπολέμησαν αὐτόν, 18 καὶ ἔφυγε Σύρος ἀπὸ προσώπου ᾿Ισραήλ, καὶ ἀπέκτεινε Δαυὶδ ἀπὸ τοῦ Σύρου ἑπτὰ χιλιάδας ἁρμάτων καὶ τεσσαράκοντα χιλιάδας πεζῶν καὶ τὸν Σωφὰ ἀρχιστράτηγον δυνάμεως ἀπέκτεινε. 19 καὶ εἶδον παῖδες ᾿Αδρααζὰρ ὅτι ἐπταίκασιν ἀπὸ προσώπου ᾿Ισραήλ, καὶ διέθεντο μετὰ Δαυὶδ καὶ ἐδούλευσαν αὐτῷ· καὶ οὐκ ἠθέλησε Σύρος τοῦ βοηθῆσαι τοῖς υἱοῖς ᾿Αμμὼν ἔτι.
