1 And it came to pass at the return of the year, at the [time of the] going forth of kings [to war], that Joab gathered the whole force of the army, and they ravaged the land of the children of Ammon; and he came and besieged Rabba. But David abode in Jerusalem. And Joab smote Rabba and destroyed it. 2 And David took the crown of Molchom their king off his head, and the weight of it was found [to be] a talent of gold, and on it were precious stones; and it was [placed] on the head of David: and he brought out the spoils of the city [which were] very great. 3 And he brought out the people that were in it, and sawed them asunder with saws, and [cut them] with iron axes, and with harrows: and thus David did to all the children of Ammon. And David and all his people returned to Jerusalem. 4 And it came to pass afterward that there was again war with the Philistines in Gazer: then Sobochai the Sosathite smote Saphut of the sons of the giants, and laid him low. 5 And there [was] war again with the Philistines; and Eleanan the son of Jair smote Lachmi the brother of Goliath the Gittite, and the wood of his spear [was] as a weavers’ beam. 6 And there was again war in Geth, and there was a man of extraordinary size, and his fingers [and toes were] six on each hand and foot, four and twenty; and he was descended from the giants. 7 And he defied Israel, and Jonathan the son of Samaa the brother of David slew him. 8 These were born to Rapha in Geth; all four were giants, and they fell by the hand of David, and by the hand of his servants. ΚΑΙ ἐγένετο ἐν τῷ ἐπιόντι ἔτει ἐν τῇ ἐξόδῳ τῶν βασιλέων καὶ ἤγαγεν ᾿Ιωὰβ πᾶσαν τὴν δύναμιν τῆς στρατιᾶς, καὶ ἔφθειραν τὴν χώραν υἱῶν ᾿Αμμών· καὶ ἦλθε καὶ περιεκάθισε τὴν Ῥαββά· καὶ Δαυὶδ ἐκάθισεν ἐν ῾Ιερουσαλήμ· καὶ ἐπάταξεν ᾿Ιωὰβ τὴν Ῥαββὰ καὶ κατέσκαψεν αὐτήν. 2 καὶ ἔλαβε Δαυὶδ τὸν στέφανον Μολχὸμ τοῦ βασιλέως αὐτῶν ἀπὸ τῆς κεφαλῆς αὐτοῦ, καὶ εὑρέθη ὁ σταθμὸς αὐτοῦ τάλαντον χρυσίου, καὶ ἐν αὐτῷ λίθος τίμιος, καὶ ἦν ἐπὶ τὴν κεφαλὴν Δαυίδ· καὶ σκῦλα τῆς πόλεως ἐξήνεγκε πολλὰ σφόδρα. 3 καὶ τὸν λαὸν τὸν ἐν αὐτῇ ἐξήγαγε καὶ διέπρισε πρίοσι καὶ ἐν σκεπάρνοις σιδηροῖς καὶ ἐν διασχίζουσι· καὶ οὕτως ἐποίησε Δαυὶδ τοῖς πᾶσιν υἱοῖς ᾿Αμμών. καὶ ἀνέστρεψε Δαυὶδ καὶ πᾶς ὁ λαὸς αὐτοῦ εἰς ῾Ιερουσαλήμ. 4 καὶ ἐγένετο μετὰ ταῦτα καὶ ἐγένετο ἔτι πόλεμος ἐν Γαζὲρ μετὰ τῶν ἀλλοφύλων. τότε ἐπάταξε Σοβοχαὶ ὁ Οὐσαθὶ τὸν Σαφοὺ ἀπὸ τῶν υἱῶν τῶν γιγάντων, καὶ ἐταπείνωσεν αὐτόν. 5 καὶ ἐγένετο ἔτι πόλεμος μετὰ τῶν ἀλλοφύλων. καὶ ἐπάταξεν ᾿Ελλανὰν υἱὸς ᾿Ιαΐρ τὸν Λαχμὶ ἀδελφὸν Γολιὰθ τοῦ Γεθθαίου, καὶ ξύλον δόρατος αὐτοῦ ὡς ἀντίον ὑφαινόντων. 6 καὶ ἐγένετο ἔτι πόλεμος ἐν Γέθ, καὶ ἦν ἀνὴρ ὑπερμεγέθης, καὶ δάκτυλοι αὐτοῦ ἓξ καὶ ἕξ, εἰκοσιτέσσαρες, καὶ οὗτος ἦν ἀπόγονος γιγάντων. 7 καὶ ὠνείδισε τὸν ᾿Ισραήλ, καὶ ἐπάταξεν αὐτὸν ᾿Ιωνάθαν υἱὸς Σαμαὰ ἀδελφοῦ Δαυίδ. 8 οὗτοι ἐγένοντο Ῥαφὰ ἐν Γέθ· πάντες ἦσαν τέσσαρες γίγαντες, καὶ ἔπεσον ἐν χειρὶ Δαυὶδ καὶ ἐν χειρὶ παίδων αὐτοῦ.
