שמואל א‏

Shmuel A (1 Samuel)

 Westminster Leningrad Codex Wiki English Translation‎ / World English Bible
1וַיָּבֹ֤אוּ הַזִּפִים֙ אֶל ־ שָׁא֔וּל הַגִּבְעָ֖תָה לֵאמֹ֑ר הֲל֨וֹא דָוִ֤ד מִסְתַּתֵּר֙ בְּגִבְעַ֣ת הַחֲכִילָ֔ה עַ֖ל פְּנֵ֥י הַיְשִׁימֹֽן ׃1Sm 26:1
¶The Ziphites came to Saul to Gibeah, saying, “Doesn’t David hide himself in the hill of Hachilah, which is before the desert?”
2וַיָּ֣קָם שָׁא֗וּל וַיֵּ֙רֶד֙ אֶל ־ מִדְבַּר ־ זִ֔יף וְאִתּ֛וֹ שְׁלֹֽשֶׁת ־ אֲלָפִ֥ים אִ֖ישׁ בְּחוּרֵ֣י יִשְׂרָאֵ֑ל לְבַקֵּ֥שׁ אֶת ־ דָּוִ֖ד בְּמִדְבַּר ־ זִֽיף ׃1Sm 26:2
Then Saul arose, and went down to the wilderness of Ziph, having three thousand chosen men of Israel with him, to seek David in the wilderness of Ziph.
3וַיִּ֨חַן שָׁא֜וּל בְּגִבְעַ֣ת הַחֲכִילָ֗ה אֲשֶׁ֛ר עַל ־ פְּנֵ֥י הַיְשִׁימֹ֖ן עַל ־ הַדָּ֑רֶךְ וְדָוִד֙ יֹשֵׁ֣ב בַּמִּדְבָּ֔ר וַיַּ֕רְא כִּ֣י בָ֥א שָׁא֛וּל אַחֲרָ֖יו הַמִּדְבָּֽרָה ׃1Sm 26:3
Saul encamped in the hill of Hachilah, which is before the desert, by the way. But David stayed in the wilderness, and he saw that Saul came after him into the wilderness.
4וַיִּשְׁלַ֥ח דָּוִ֖ד מְרַגְּלִ֑ים וַיֵּ֕דַע כִּֽי ־ בָ֥א שָׁא֖וּל אֶל ־ נָכֽוֹן ׃1Sm 26:4
David therefore sent out spies, and understood that Saul had certainly come.
5וַיָּ֣קָם דָּוִ֗ד וַיָּבֹא֮ אֶֽל ־ הַמָּקוֹם֮ אֲשֶׁ֣ר חָנָה ־ שָׁ֣ם שָׁאוּל֒ וַיַּ֣רְא דָּוִ֗ד אֶת ־ הַמָּקוֹם֙ אֲשֶׁ֣ר שָֽׁכַב ־ שָׁ֣ם שָׁא֔וּל וְאַבְנֵ֥ר בֶּן ־ נֵ֖ר שַׂר ־ צְבָא֑וֹ וְשָׁאוּל֙ שֹׁכֵ֣ב בַּמַּעְגָּ֔ל וְהָעָ֖ם חֹנִ֥ים ‏{ סביבתו סְבִיבֹתָֽיו ׃ }‏1Sm 26:5
David arose, and came to the place where Saul had encamped; and David saw the place where Saul lay, and Abner the son of Ner, the captain of his army: and Saul lay within the place of the wagons, and the people were encamped around him.
6וַיַּ֨עַן דָּוִ֜ד וַיֹּ֣אמֶר ׀ אֶל ־ אֲחִימֶ֣לֶךְ הַחִתִּ֗י וְאֶל ־ אֲבִישַׁ֨י בֶּן ־ צְרוּיָ֜ה אֲחִ֤י יוֹאָב֙ לֵאמֹ֔ר מִֽי ־ יֵרֵ֥ד אִתִּ֛י אֶל ־ שָׁא֖וּל אֶל ־ הַֽמַּחֲנֶ֑ה וַיֹּ֣אמֶר אֲבִישַׁ֔י אֲנִ֖י אֵרֵ֥ד עִמָּֽךְ ׃1Sm 26:6
Then answered David and said to Ahimelech the Hittite, and to Abishai the son of Zeruiah, brother to Joab, saying, “Who will go down with me to Saul to the camp?”
¶Abishai said, “I will go down with you.”
7וַיָּבֹא֩ דָוִ֨ד וַאֲבִישַׁ֥י ׀ אֶל ־ הָעָם֮ לַיְלָה֒ וְהִנֵּ֣ה שָׁא֗וּל שֹׁכֵ֤ב יָשֵׁן֙ בַּמַּעְגָּ֔ל וַחֲנִית֥וֹ מְעוּכָֽה ־ בָאָ֖רֶץ ‏{ מראשתו מְרַאֲשֹׁתָ֑יו }‏ וְאַבְנֵ֣ר וְהָעָ֔ם שֹׁכְבִ֖ים ‏{ סביבתו סְבִיבֹתָֽיו ׃ }‏ ס 1Sm 26:7
So David and Abishai came to the people by night: and, behold, Saul lay sleeping within the place of the wagons, with his spear stuck in the ground at his head; and Abner and the people lay around him.
8וַיֹּ֤אמֶר אֲבִישַׁי֙ אֶל ־ דָּוִ֔ד סִגַּ֨ר אֱלֹהִ֥ים הַיּ֛וֹם אֶת ־ אוֹיִבְךָ֖ בְּיָדֶ֑ךָ וְעַתָּה֩ אַכֶּ֨נּוּ נָ֜א בַּחֲנִ֤ית וּבָאָ֙רֶץ֙ פַּ֣עַם אַחַ֔ת וְלֹ֥א אֶשְׁנֶ֖ה לֽוֹ ׃1Sm 26:8
Then Abishai said to David, “God has delivered up your enemy into your hand this day. Now therefore please let me strike him with the spear to the earth at one stroke, and I will not strike him the second time.”
9וַיֹּ֧אמֶר דָּוִ֛ד אֶל ־ אֲבִישַׁ֖י אַל ־ תַּשְׁחִיתֵ֑הוּ כִּ֠י מִ֣י שָׁלַ֥ח יָד֛וֹ בִּמְשִׁ֥יחַ יְהוָ֖ה וְנִקָּֽה ׃ פ 1Sm 26:9
¶David said to Abishai, “Don’t destroy him; for who can put forth his hand against Yahweh’s anointed, and be guiltless?”
10וַיֹּ֤אמֶר דָּוִד֙ חַי ־ יְהוָ֔ה כִּ֥י אִם ־ יְהוָ֖ה יִגָּפֶ֑נּוּ אֽוֹ ־ יוֹמ֤וֹ יָבוֹא֙ וָמֵ֔ת א֧וֹ בַמִּלְחָמָ֛ה יֵרֵ֖ד וְנִסְפָּֽה ׃1Sm 26:10
David said, “As Yahweh lives, Yahweh will strike him; or his day shall come to die; or he shall go down into battle and perish.
11חָלִ֤ילָה לִּי֙ מֵֽיהוָ֔ה מִשְּׁלֹ֥חַ יָדִ֖י בִּמְשִׁ֣יחַ יְהוָ֑ה וְ֠עַתָּה קַח ־ נָ֨א אֶֽת ־ הַחֲנִ֜ית אֲשֶׁ֧ר ‏{ מראשתו מְרַאֲשֹׁתָ֛יו }‏ וְאֶת ־ צַפַּ֥חַת הַמַּ֖יִם וְנֵ֥לֲכָה לָּֽנוּ ׃1Sm 26:11
Yahweh forbid that I should put forth my hand against Yahweh’s anointed; but now please take the spear that is at his head, and the jar of water, and let us go.”
12וַיִּקַּח֩ דָּוִ֨ד אֶֽת ־ הַחֲנִ֜ית וְאֶת ־ צַפַּ֤חַת הַמַּ֙יִם֙ מֵרַאֲשֹׁתֵ֣י שָׁא֔וּל וַיֵּלְכ֖וּ לָהֶ֑ם וְאֵ֣ין רֹאֶה֩ וְאֵ֨ין יוֹדֵ֜עַ וְאֵ֣ין מֵקִ֗יץ כִּ֤י כֻלָּם֙ יְשֵׁנִ֔ים כִּ֚י תַּרְדֵּמַ֣ת יְהוָ֔ה נָפְלָ֖ה עֲלֵיהֶֽם ׃1Sm 26:12
¶So David took the spear and the jar of water from Saul’s head; and they went away: and no man saw it, nor knew it, neither did any awake; for they were all asleep, because a deep sleep from Yahweh was fallen on them.
13וַיַּעֲבֹ֤ר דָּוִד֙ הָעֵ֔בֶר וַיַּעֲמֹ֥ד עַל ־ רֹאשׁ ־ הָהָ֖ר מֵֽרָחֹ֑ק רַ֥ב הַמָּק֖וֹם בֵּינֵיהֶֽם ׃1Sm 26:13
Then David went over to the other side, and stood on the top of the mountain afar off; a great space being between them;
14וַיִּקְרָ֨א דָוִ֜ד אֶל ־ הָעָ֗ם וְאֶל ־ אַבְנֵ֤ר בֶּן ־ נֵר֙ לֵאמֹ֔ר הֲל֥וֹא תַעֲנֶ֖ה אַבְנֵ֑ר וַיַּ֤עַן אַבְנֵר֙ וַיֹּ֔אמֶר מִ֥י אַתָּ֖ה קָרָ֥אתָ אֶל ־ הַמֶּֽלֶךְ ׃ פ 1Sm 26:14
and David cried to the people, and to Abner the son of Ner, saying, “Don’t you answer, Abner?”
¶Then Abner answered, “Who are you who cries to the king?”
15וַיֹּאמֶר֩ דָּוִ֨ד אֶל ־ אַבְנֵ֜ר הֲלוֹא ־ אִ֣ישׁ אַתָּ֗ה וּמִ֤י כָמ֙וֹךָ֙ בְּיִשְׂרָאֵ֔ל וְלָ֙מָּה֙ לֹ֣א שָׁמַ֔רְתָּ אֶל ־ אֲדֹנֶ֖יךָ הַמֶּ֑לֶךְ כִּי ־ בָא֙ אַחַ֣ד הָעָ֔ם לְהַשְׁחִ֖ית אֶת ־ הַמֶּ֥לֶךְ אֲדֹנֶֽיךָ ׃1Sm 26:15
¶David said to Abner, “Aren’t you a man? Who is like you in Israel? Why then have you not kept watch over your lord, the king? For one of the people came in to destroy the king your lord.
16לֹא ־ ט֞וֹב הַדָּבָ֣ר הַזֶּה֮ אֲשֶׁ֣ר עָשִׂיתָ֒ חַי ־ יְהוָ֗ה כִּ֤י בְנֵי ־ מָ֙וֶת֙ אַתֶּ֔ם אֲשֶׁ֧ר לֹֽא ־ שְׁמַרְתֶּ֛ם עַל ־ אֲדֹנֵיכֶ֖ם עַל ־ מְשִׁ֣יחַ יְהוָ֑ה וְעַתָּ֣ה ׀ רְאֵ֗ה אֵֽי ־ חֲנִ֥ית הַמֶּ֛לֶךְ וְאֶת ־ צַפַּ֥חַת הַמַּ֖יִם אֲשֶׁ֥ר ‏{ מראשתו מְרַאֲשֹׁתָֽיו ׃ }‏1Sm 26:16
This thing isn’t good that you have done. As Yahweh lives, you are worthy to die, because you have not kept watch over your lord, Yahweh’s anointed. Now see where the king’s spear is, and the jar of water that was at his head.”
17וַיַּכֵּ֤ר שָׁאוּל֙ אֶת ־ ק֣וֹל דָּוִ֔ד וַיֹּ֕אמֶר הֲקוֹלְךָ֥ זֶ֖ה בְּנִ֣י דָוִ֑ד וַיֹּ֣אמֶר דָּוִ֔ד קוֹלִ֖י אֲדֹנִ֥י הַמֶּֽלֶךְ ׃1Sm 26:17
¶Saul knew David’s voice, and said, “Is this your voice, my son David?”
¶David said, “It is my voice, my lord, O king.”
18וַיֹּ֕אמֶר לָ֥מָּה זֶּ֛ה אֲדֹנִ֥י רֹדֵ֖ף אַחֲרֵ֣י עַבְדּ֑וֹ כִּ֚י מֶ֣ה עָשִׂ֔יתִי וּמַה ־ בְּיָדִ֖י רָעָֽה ׃1Sm 26:18
He said, “Why does my lord pursue after his servant? For what have I done? Or what evil is in my hand?
19וְעַתָּ֗ה יִֽשְׁמַֽע ־ נָא֙ אֲדֹנִ֣י הַמֶּ֔לֶךְ אֵ֖ת דִּבְרֵ֣י עַבְדּ֑וֹ אִם ־ יְהוָ֞ה הֱסִֽיתְךָ֥ בִי֙ יָרַ֣ח מִנְחָ֔ה וְאִ֣ם ׀ בְּנֵ֣י הָאָדָ֗ם אֲרוּרִ֥ים הֵם֙ לִפְנֵ֣י יְהוָ֔ה כִּֽי ־ גֵרְשׁ֣וּנִי הַיּ֗וֹם מֵהִסְתַּפֵּ֜חַ בְּנַחֲלַ֤ת יְהוָה֙ לֵאמֹ֔ר לֵ֥ךְ עֲבֹ֖ד אֱלֹהִ֥ים אֲחֵרִֽים ׃1Sm 26:19
Now therefore, please let my lord the king hear the words of his servant. If it is so that Yahweh has stirred you up against me, let him accept an offering. But if it is the children of men, they are cursed before Yahweh; for they have driven me out this day that I shouldn’t cling to Yahweh’s inheritance, saying, ‘Go, serve other gods!’
20וְעַתָּ֗ה אַל ־ יִפֹּ֤ל דָּֽמִי֙ אַ֔רְצָה מִנֶּ֖גֶד פְּנֵ֣י יְהוָ֑ה כִּֽי ־ יָצָ֞א מֶ֣לֶךְ יִשְׂרָאֵ֗ל לְבַקֵּשׁ֙ אֶת ־ פַּרְעֹ֣שׁ אֶחָ֔ד כַּאֲשֶׁ֛ר יִרְדֹּ֥ף הַקֹּרֵ֖א בֶּהָרִֽים ׃1Sm 26:20
Now therefore, don’t let my blood fall to the earth away from the presence of Yahweh; for the king of Israel has come out to seek a flea, as when one hunts a partridge in the mountains.”
21וַיֹּאמֶר֩ שָׁא֨וּל חָטָ֜אתִי שׁ֣וּב בְּנִֽי ־ דָוִ֗ד כִּ֠י לֹֽא ־ אָרַ֤ע לְךָ֙ ע֔וֹד תַּ֠חַת אֲשֶׁ֨ר יָקְרָ֥ה נַפְשִׁ֛י בְּעֵינֶ֖יךָ הַיּ֣וֹם הַזֶּ֑ה הִנֵּ֥ה הִסְכַּ֛לְתִּי וָאֶשְׁגֶּ֖ה הַרְבֵּ֥ה מְאֹֽד ׃1Sm 26:21
¶Then Saul said, “I have sinned. Return, my son David; for I will no more do you harm, because my life was precious in your eyes this day. Behold, I have played the fool, and have erred exceedingly.”
22וַיַּ֤עַן דָּוִד֙ וַיֹּ֔אמֶר הִנֵּ֖ה ‏{ החנית חֲנִ֣ית }‏ הַמֶּ֑לֶךְ וְיַעֲבֹ֛ר אֶחָ֥ד מֵֽהַנְּעָרִ֖ים וְיִקָּחֶֽהָ ׃1Sm 26:22
¶David answered, “Behold the spear, O king! Then let one of the young men come over and get it.
23וַֽיהוָה֙ יָשִׁ֣יב לָאִ֔ישׁ אֶת ־ צִדְקָת֖וֹ וְאֶת ־ אֱמֻנָת֑וֹ אֲשֶׁר֩ נְתָנְךָ֨ יְהוָ֤ה ׀ הַיּוֹם֙ בְּיָ֔ד וְלֹ֣א אָבִ֔יתִי לִשְׁלֹ֥חַ יָדִ֖י בִּמְשִׁ֥יחַ יְהוָֽה ׃1Sm 26:23
Yahweh will render to every man his righteousness and his faithfulness; because Yahweh delivered you into my hand today, and I wouldn’t put forth my hand against Yahweh’s anointed.
24וְהִנֵּ֗ה כַּאֲשֶׁ֨ר גָּדְלָ֧ה נַפְשְׁךָ֛ הַיּ֥וֹם הַזֶּ֖ה בְּעֵינָ֑י כֵּ֣ן תִּגְדַּ֤ל נַפְשִׁי֙ בְּעֵינֵ֣י יְהוָ֔ה וְיַצִּלֵ֖נִי מִכָּל ־ צָרָֽה ׃ פ 1Sm 26:24
Behold, as your life was respected this day in my eyes, so let my life be respected in the eyes of Yahweh, and let him deliver me out of all oppression.”
25וַיֹּ֨אמֶר שָׁא֜וּל אֶל ־ דָּוִ֗ד בָּר֤וּךְ אַתָּה֙ בְּנִ֣י דָוִ֔ד גַּ֚ם עָשֹׂ֣ה תַעֲשֶׂ֔ה וְגַ֖ם יָכֹ֣ל תּוּכָ֑ל וַיֵּ֤לֶךְ דָּוִד֙ לְדַרְכּ֔וֹ וְשָׁא֖וּל שָׁ֥ב לִמְקוֹמֽוֹ ׃ פ 1Sm 26:25
¶Then Saul said to David, “You are blessed, my son David. You shall both do mightily, and shall surely prevail.” So David went his way, and Saul returned to his place.
