1 And it came to pass when David and his men had entered Sekelac on the third day, that Amalec had made an incursion upon the south, and upon Sekelac, and smitten Sekelac, and burnt it with fire. 2 And as to the women and all things that were in it, great and small, they slew neither man nor woman, but carried them captives, and went on their way. 3 And David and his men came into the city, and, behold, it was burnt with fire; and their wives, and their sons, and their daughters were carried captive. 4 And David and his men lifted up their voice, and wept till there was no longer any power within them to weep. 5 And both the wives of David were carried captive, Achinaam, the Jezraelitess, and Abigaia the wife of Nabal the Carmelite. 6 And David was greatly distressed, because the people spoke of stoning him, because the soul of all the people was grieved, each for his sons and his daughters: but David strengthened himself in the Lord his God. 7 And David said to Abiathar the priest the son of Achimelech, Bring near the ephod. 8 And David enquired of the Lord, saying, Shall I pursue after this troop? shall I overtake them? and he said to him, Pursue, for thou shalt surely overtake them, and thou shalt surely rescue [the captives]. 9 So David went, he and the six hundred men with him, and they come as far as the brook Bosor, and the superfluous ones stopped. 10 And he pursued them with four hundred men; and there remained behind two hundred men, who tarried on the other side of the brook Bosor. 11 And they find an Egyptian in the field, and they take him, and bring him to David; and they gave him bread and he ate, and they caused him to drink water. 12 And they gave him a piece of a cake of figs, and he ate, and his spirit was restored in him; for he had not eaten bread, and had not drunk water three days and three nights. 13 And David said to him, Whose art thou? and whence art thou? and the young man the Egyptian said, I am the servant of an Amalekite; and my master left me, because I was taken ill three days ago. 14 And we made an incursion on the south of the Cholthi, and on the parts of Judea, and on the south of Chelub, and we burnt Sekelac with fire. 15 And David said to him, Wilt thou bring me down to this troop? And he said, Swear now to me by God, that thou wilt not kill me, and that thou wilt not deliver me into the hands of my master, and I will bring thee down upon this troop. 16 So be brought him down thither, and behold, they [were] scattered abroad upon the surface of the whole land, eating and drinking, and feasting by [reason of] all the great spoils which they had taken out of the land of the Philistines, and out of the land of Juda. 17 And David came upon them, and smote them from the morning till the evening, and on the next day; and not one of them escaped, except four hundred young men, who were mounted on camels, and fled. 18 And David recovered all that the Amalekites had taken, and he rescued both his wives. 19 And nothing was wanting to them of great or small, either of the spoils, or the sons and daughters, or anything that they had taken of theirs; and David recovered all. 20 And he took all the flocks, and the herds, and led them away before the spoils: and it was said of these spoils, These [are] the spoils of David. 21 And David comes to the two hundred men who were left behind that they should not follow after David, and he had caused them to remain by the brook of Bosor; and they came forth to meet David, and to meet his people with him: and David drew near to the people, and they asked him how he did. 22 Then every ill-disposed and bad man of the soldiers who had gone with David, answered and said, Because they did not pursue together with us, we will not give them of the spoils which we have recovered, only let each one lead away with him his wife and his children, and let them return. 23 And David said, Ye shall not do so, after the Lord has delivered [the enemy] to us, and guarded us, and the Lord has delivered into our hands the troop that came against us. 24 And who will hearken to these your words? for they are not inferior to us; for according to the portion of him that went down to the battle, so shall be the portion of him that abides with the baggage; they shall share alike. 25 And it came to pass from that day forward, that it became an ordinance and a custom in Israel until this day. 26 And David came to Sekelac, and sent of the spoils to the elders of Juda, and to his friends, saying, Behold [some] of the spoils of the enemies of the Lord; 27 to those in Baethsur, and to those in Rama of the south, and to those in Iethor. 28 And to those in Aroer, and to those in Ammadi, and to those in Saphi, and to those in Esthie, 29 and to those in Geth, and to those in Cinan, and to those in Saphec, and to those in Thimath, and to those in Carmel, and to those in the cities of Jerameli, and to those in the cities of the Kenezite; 30 and to those in Jerimuth, and to those in Bersabee, and to those in Nombe, 31 and to those in Chebron, and to all the places which David and his men had passed through. ΚΑΙ ἐγενήθη εἰσελθόντος Δαυὶδ καὶ τῶν ἄνδρῶν αὐτοῦ τὴν Σεκελὰκ τῇ ἡμέρᾳ τῇ τρίτῃ, καὶ ᾿Αμαλὴκ ἐπέθετο ἐπὶ τὸν νότον καὶ ἐπὶ τὴν Σεκελὰκ καὶ ἐπάταξε τὴν Σεκελὰκ καὶ ἐνεπύρισαν αὐτὴν ἐν πυρί· 2 καὶ τὰς γυναῖκας καὶ πάντα τὰ ἐν αὐτῇ ἀπὸ μικροῦ ἕως μεγάλου οὐκ ἐθανάτωσαν ἄνδρα καὶ γυναῖκα, ἀλλ᾿ ᾐχμαλώτευσαν καὶ ἀπῆλθον εἰς τὴν ὁδὸν αὐτῶν. 3 καὶ ἦλθε Δαυὶδ καὶ οἱ ἄνδρες αὐτοῦ εἰς τὴν πόλιν, καὶ ἰδοὺ ἐμπεπύρισται ἐν πυρί, αἱ δὲ γυναῖκες αὐτῶν καὶ οἱ υἱοὶ αὐτῶν καὶ αἱ θυγατέρες αὐτῶν ᾐχμαλωτευμένοι. 4 καὶ ᾖρε Δαυὶδ καὶ οἱ ἄνδρες αὐτοῦ τὴν φωνὴν αὐτῶν καί ἔκλαυσαν, ἕως ὅτου οὐκ ἦν ἐν αὐτοῖς ἰσχὺς ἔτι τοῦ κλαίειν. 5 καὶ ἀμφότεραι αἱ γυναῖκες Δαυὶδ ᾐχμαλωτεύθησαν, ᾿Αχινόομ ἡ ᾿Ιεζραηλῖτις καὶ ᾿Αβιγαία ἡ γυνὴ Νάβαλ τοῦ Καρμηλίου. 6 καὶ ἐθλίβη Δαυὶδ σφόδρα, ὅτι εἶπεν ὁ λαὸς λιθοβολῆσαι αὐτόν, ὅτι κατώδυνος ψυχὴ παντὸς τοῦ λαοῦ, ἑκάστου ἐπὶ τοὺς υἱοὺς αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐπὶ τὰς θυγατέρας αὐτοῦ· καὶ ἐκραταιώθη Δαυὶδ ἐν Κυρίῳ Θεῷ αὐτοῦ. 7 καὶ εἶπε Δαυὶδ πρὸς ᾿Αβιάθαρ τὸν ἱερέα υἱὸν ᾿Αβιμέλεχ· προσάγαγε τὸ ἐφούδ. 8 καὶ ἐπηρώτησε Δαυὶδ διά τοῦ Κυρίου λέγων· εἰ καταδιώξω ὀπίσω τοῦ γεδδοὺρ τούτου, εἰ καταλήψομαι αὐτούς; καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῷ· καταδίωκε, ὅτι καταλαμβάνων καταλήψῃ αὐτοὺς καὶ ἐξαιρούμενος ἐξελῇ. 9 καὶ ἐπορεύθη Δαυίδ, αὐτὸς καὶ οἱ ἑξακόσιοι ἄνδρες μετ᾿ αὐτοῦ, καὶ ἔρχονται ἕως τοῦ χειμάρρου Βοσόρ, καὶ οἱ περισσοὶ ἔστησαν. 10 καὶ κατεδίωξεν ἐν τετρακοσίοις ἀνδράσιν, ὑπέστησαν δὲ διακόσιοι ἄνδρες, οἵτινες ἐκάθισαν πέραν τοῦ χειμάρρου τοῦ Βοσόρ. 11 καὶ εὑρίσκουσιν ἄνδρα Αἰγύπτιον ἐν ἀγρῷ καὶ λαμβάνουσιν αὐτὸν καὶ ἄγουσιν αὐτὸν πρὸς Δαυίδ· 12 καὶ διδόασιν αὐτῷ ἄρτον, καὶ ἔφαγε, καὶ ἐπότισαν αὐτὸν ὕδωρ· καὶ διδόασιν αὐτῷ κλάσμα παλάθης, καὶ ἔφαγε, καὶ κατέστη τὸ πνεῦμα αὐτοῦ ἐν αὐτῷ, ὅτι οὐ βεβρώκει ἄρτον καὶ οὐ πεπώκει ὕδωρ τρεῖς ἡμέρας καὶ τρεῖς νύκτας. 13 καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῷ Δαυίδ· τίνος σὺ εἶ καὶ πόθεν εἶ; καὶ εἶπε τὸ παιδάριον τὸ Αἰγύπτιον· ἐγώ εἰμι δοῦλος ἀνδρὸς ᾿Αμαληκίτου, καὶ κατέλιπέ με ὁ Κύριός μου, ὅτι ἠνωχλήθην ἐγὼ σήμερον τριταῖος. 14 καὶ ἡμεῖς ἐπεθέμεθα ἐπὶ τὸν νότον τοῦ Χολθὶ καὶ ἐπὶ τὰ τῆς ᾿Ιουδαίας μέρη καὶ ἐπὶ νότον Χελοὺβ καὶ τὴν Σεκελὰκ ἐνεπυρίσαμεν ἐν πυρί. 15 καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῷ Δαυίδ· εἰ κατάξεις με ἐπὶ τὸ γεδδοὺρ τοῦτο; καὶ εἶπεν· ὄμοσον δή μοι κατὰ τοῦ Θεοῦ μὴ θανατώσειν με καὶ μὴ παραδοῦναί με εἰς χεῖρας τοῦ κυρίου μου, καὶ κατάξω σε ἐπὶ τὸ γεδδοὺρ τοῦτο. 16 καὶ κατήγαγεν αὐτὸν ἐκεῖ, καὶ ἰδοὺ οὗτοι διακεχυμένοι ἐπὶ πρόσωπον πάσης τῆς γῆς ἐσθίοντες καὶ πίνοντες καὶ ἑορτάζοντες ἐν πᾶσι τοῖς σκύλοις τοῖς μεγάλοις, οἷς ἔλαβον ἐκ γῆς ἀλλοφύλων καὶ ἐκ γῆς ᾿Ιούδα. 17 καὶ ἦλθεν ἐπ᾿ αὐτοὺς Δαυὶδ καὶ ἐπάταξεν αὐτοὺς ἀπὸ ἑωσφόρου ἕως δείλης καὶ τῇ ἐπαύριον, καὶ οὐκ ἐσώθη ἐξ αὐτῶν ἀνὴρ ὅτι ἀλλ᾿ ἢ τετρακόσια παιδάρια, ἃ ἦν ἐπιβεβηκότα ἐπὶ τὰς καμήλους καὶ ἔφυγον. 18 καὶ ἀφείλατο Δαυὶδ πάντα, ἃ ἔλαβον οἱ ᾿Αμαληκῖται, καὶ ἀμφοτέρας τὰς γυναῖκας αὐτοῦ ἐξείλατο. 19 καὶ οὐ διεφώνησεν αὐτοῖς ἀπὸ μικροῦ ἕως μεγάλου καὶ ἀπὸ τῶν σκύλων καὶ ἕως υἱῶν καὶ θυγατέρων καὶ ἕως πάντων, ὧν ἔλαβον αὐτῶν· τὰ πάντα ἐπέστρεψε Δαυίδ. 20 καὶ ἔλαβε πάντα τὰ ποίμνια καὶ τὰ βουκόλια καὶ ἀπήγαγεν ἔμπροσθεν τῶν σκύλων, καὶ τοῖς σκύλοις ἐκείνοις ἐλέγετο· ταῦτα τὰ σκῦλα Δαυίδ. 21 καὶ παραγίνεται Δαυὶδ πρὸς τοὺς διακοσίους ἄνδρας τοὺς ὑπολειφθέντας τοῦ πορεύεσθαι ὀπίσω Δαυὶδ καί ἐκάθισεν αὐτοὺς ἐν τῷ χειμάρρῳ τοῦ Βοσόρ, καὶ ἐξῆλθον εἰς ἀπάντησιν Δαυὶδ καὶ εἰς ἀπάντησιν τοῦ λαοῦ τοῦ μετ᾿ αὐτοῦ, καὶ προσήγαγε Δαυὶδ ἕως τοῦ λαοῦ, καὶ ἠρώτησαν αὐτὸν τὰ εἰς εἰρήνην. 22 καὶ ἀπεκρίθη πᾶς ἀνὴρ λοιμὸς καὶ πονηρὸς τῶν ἀνδρῶν τῶν πολεμιστῶν τῶν πορευθέντων μετὰ Δαυὶδ καὶ εἶπον, ὅτι οὐ κατεδίωξαν μεθ᾿ ἡμῶν, οὐ δώσομεν αὐτοῖς ἐκ τῶν σκύλων, ὧν ἐξειλόμεθα, ὅτι ἀλλ᾿ ἢ ἕκαστος τὴν γυναῖκα αὐτοῦ καὶ τὰ τέκνα αὐτοῦ ἀπαγέσθωσαν καὶ ἀποστρεφέτωσαν. 23 καὶ εἶπε Δαυίδ· οὐ ποιήσετε οὕτως μετὰ τὸ παραδοῦναι τὸν Κύριον ἡμῖν καὶ φυλάξαι ἡμᾶς καὶ παρέδωκε Κύριος τὸν γεδδοὺρ τὸν ἐπερχόμενον ἐφ᾿ ἡμᾶς εἰς χεῖρας ἡμῶν. 24 καὶ τίς ἐπακούσεται ὑμῶν τῶν λόγων τούτων; ὅτι οὐχ ἧττον ἡμῶν εἰσι· διότι κατὰ τὴν μερίδα τοῦ καταβαίνοντος εἰς τὸν πόλεμον, οὕτως ἔσται ἡ μερὶς τοῦ καθημένου ἐπὶ τὰ σκεύη· κατὰ τὸ αὐτὸ μεριοῦνται. 25 καὶ ἐγενήθη ἀπὸ τῆς ἡμέρας ἐκείνης καὶ ἐπάνω, καὶ ἐγένετο εἰς πρόσταγμα καὶ εἰς δικαίωμα τῷ ᾿Ισραὴλ ἕως τῆς σήμερον. 26 Καὶ ἦλθε Δαυὶδ εἰς Σεκελὰκ καὶ ἀπέστειλε τοῖς πρεσβυτέροις τῶν σκύλων ᾿Ιούδα καὶ τοῖς πλησίον αὐτοῦ λέγων· ἰδοὺ ἀπὸ τῶν σκύλων τῶν ἐχθρῶν Κυρίου· 27 τοῖς ἐν Βαιθσοὺρ καὶ τοῖς ἐν Ῥαμὰ νότου καὶ τοῖς ἐν ᾿Ιεθθὸρ 28 καὶ τοῖς ἐν ᾿Αροὴρ καὶ τοῖς ἐν ᾿Αμμαδὶ καὶ τοῖς ἐν Σαφὶ καὶ τοῖς ἐν ᾿Εσθιὲ 29 καὶ τοῖς ἐν Γὲθ καὶ τοῖς ἐν Κινὰν καὶ τοῖς ἐν Σαφὲκ καὶ τοῖς ἐν Θιμὰθ καὶ τοῖς ἐν Καρμήλῳ καὶ τοῖς ἐν ταῖς πόλεσι τοῦ ῾Ιεραμηλὶ καὶ τοῖς ἐν ταῖς πόλεσι τοῦ Κενεζὶ 30 καὶ τοῖς ἐν ῾Ιεριμοὺθ καὶ τοῖς ἐν Βηρσαβεὲ καὶ τοῖς ἐν Νομβὲ 31 καὶ τοῖς ἐν Χεβρὼν καὶ εἰς πάντας τοὺς τόπους, οὓς διῆλθε Δαυὶδ ἐκεῖ, αὐτὸς καὶ οἱ ἄνδρες αὐτοῦ.
