||LIBER SAMUHELIS I
||Καὶ ἐξῆλθον αἱ χορεύουσαι εἰς συνάντησιν Δαυιδ ἐκ πασῶν πόλεων Ισραηλ ἐν τυμπάνοις καὶ ἐν χαρμοσύνῃ καὶ ἐν κυμβάλοις,
||And there came out women in dances to meet David out of all the cities of Israel with timbrels and with rejoicing and with cymbals.
||Saul's resentment. 1Sm.18.6-16
||As they were coming home, when David returned from slaying the Philistine, the women came out of all the cities of Israel, singing and dancing, to meet King Saul, with timbrels, with songs of joy, and with instruments of music.||וַיְהִי בְּבֹואָם בְּשׁוּב דָּוִד מֵהַכֹּות אֶת־הַפְּלִשְׁתִּי וַתֵּצֶאנָה הַנָּשִׁים מִכָּל־עָרֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל [כ= לָשֹׁור] [ק= לָשִׁיר] וְהַמְּחֹלֹות לִקְרַאת שָׁאוּל הַמֶּלֶךְ בְּתֻפִּים בְּשִׂמְחָה וּבְשָׁלִשִׁים׃
||καὶ ἐξῆρχον αἱ γυναῖκες καὶ ἔλεγον Ἑπάταξεν Σαουλ ἐν χιλιάσιν αὐτοῦ καὶ Δαυιδ ἐν μυριάσιν αὐτοῦ.
||And the women began [the strain] and said Saul has smitten his thousands and David his ten thousands.
||And the women sang to one another as they made merry, "Saul has slain his thousands, |
and David his ten thousands."
|וַתַּעֲנֶינָה הַנָּשִׁים הַמְשַׂחֲקֹות וַתֹּאמַרְןָ
הִכָּה שָׁאוּל [כ= בַּאֱלְפֹו] [ק= בַּאֲלָפָיו] וְדָוִד בְּרִבְבֹתָיו׃
||καὶ πονηρὸν ἐφάνη τὸ ῥῆμα ἐν ὀφθαλμοῖς Σαουλ περὶ τοῦ λόγου τούτου, καὶ εἶπεν Τῷ Δαυιδ ἔδωκαν τὰς μυριάδας καὶ ἐμοὶ ἔδωκαν τὰς χιλιάδας.
||And it seemed evil in the eyes of Saul concerning this matter and he said To David they have given ten thousands and to me they have given thousands.
||And Saul was very angry, and this saying displeased him; he said, "They have ascribed to David ten thousands, and to me they have ascribed thousands; and what more can he have but the kingdom?"||וַיִּחַר לְשָׁאוּל מְאֹד וַיֵּרַע בְּעֵינָיו הַדָּבָר הַזֶּה וַיֹּאמֶר נָתְנוּ לְדָוִד רְבָבֹות וְלִי נָתְנוּ הָאֲלָפִים וְעֹוד לֹו אַךְ הַמְּלוּכָה׃
||καὶ ἦν Σαουλ ὑποβλεπόμενος τὸν Δαυιδ ἀπὸ τῆς ἡμέρας ἐκείνης καὶ ἐπέκεινα.
||And Saul eyed David from that day on.||וַיְהִי שָׁאוּל [כ= עָוֶן] [ק= עֹויֵן] אֶת־דָּוִד מֵהַיֹּום הַהוּא וָהָלְאָה׃ ס
||καὶ ἐφοβήθη Σαουλ ἀπὸ προσώπου Δαυιδ
||And Saul was alarmed on account of David.
||Saul was afraid of David, because the LORD was with him but had departed from Saul.||וַיִּרָא שָׁאוּל מִלִּפְנֵי דָוִד כִּי־הָיָה יְהוָה עִמֹּו וּמֵעִם שָׁאוּל סָר׃
||καὶ ἀπέστησεν αὐτὸν ἀπ' αὐτοῦ καὶ κατέστησεν αὐτὸν ἑαυτῷ χιλίαρχον, καὶ ἐξεπορεύετο καὶ εἰσεπορεύετο ἔμπροσθεν τοῦ λαοῦ.
||And he removed him from him and made him a captain of a thousand for himself; and he went out and came in before the people.
||So Saul removed him from his presence, and made him a commander of a thousand; and he went out and came in before the people.||וַיְסִרֵהוּ שָׁאוּל מֵעִמֹּו וַיְשִׂמֵהוּ לֹו שַׂר־אָלֶף וַיֵּצֵא וַיָּבֹא לִפְנֵי הָעָם׃ ף
||καὶ ἦν Δαυιδ ἐν πάσαις ταῖς ὁδοῖς αὐτοῦ συνίων, καὶ κύριος μετ' αὐτοῦ.
||And David was prudent in all his ways and the Lord was with him.
||And David had success in all his undertakings; for the LORD was with him.||וַיְהִי דָוִד לְכָל־דָּרְכָוק מַשְׂכִּיל וַיהוָה עִמֹּו׃
||καὶ εἶδεν Σαουλ ὡς αὐτὸς συνίει σφόδρα, καὶ εὐλαβεῖτο ἀπὸ προσώπου αὐτοῦ.
||And Saul saw that he was very wise and he was afraid of him.
||And when Saul saw that he had great success, he stood in awe of him.||וַיַּרְא שָׁאוּל אֲשֶׁר־הוּא מַשְׂכִּיל מְאֹד וַיָּגָר מִפָּנָיו׃
||καὶ πᾶς Ισραηλ καὶ Ιουδας ἠγάπα τὸν Δαυιδ, ὅτι αὐτὸς ἐξεπορεύετο καὶ εἰσεπορεύετο πρὸ προσώπου τοῦ λαοῦ.
||And all Israel and Juda loved David because he came in and went out before the people.
||But all Israel and Judah loved David; for he went out and came in before them.||וְכָל־יִשְׂרָאֵל וִיהוּדָה אֹהֵב אֶת־דָּוִד כִּי־הוּא יֹוצֵא וָבָא לִפְנֵיהֶם׃ ף
||Καὶ ἠγάπησεν Μελχολ ἡ θυγάτηρ Σαουλ τὸν Δαυιδ, καὶ ἀπηγγέλη Σαουλ, καὶ ηὐθύνθη ἐν ὀφθαλμοῖς αὐτοῦ.
||And Melchol the daughter of Saul loved David; and it was told Saul and the thing was pleasing in his eyes.
||Now Saul's daughter Michal loved David; and they told Saul, and the thing pleased him.||וַתֶּאֱהַב מִיכַל בַּת־שָׁאוּל אֶת־דָּוִד וַיַּגִּדוּ לְשָׁאוּל וַיִּשַׁר הַדָּבָר בְּעֵינָיו׃
||καὶ εἶπεν Σαουλ Δώσω αὐτὴν αὐτῷ, καὶ ἔσται αὐτῷ εἰς σκάνδαλον. καὶ ἦν ἐπὶ Σαουλ χεὶρ ἀλλοφύλων·
||And Saul said I will give her to him and she shall be a stumbling-block to him. Now the hand of the Philistines was against Saul.
||Saul thought, "Let me give her to him, that she may be a snare for him, and that the hand of the Philistines may be against him." Therefore Saul said to David a second time, "You shall now be my son-in-law."||וַיֹּאמֶר שָׁאוּל אֶתְּנֶנָּה לֹּו וּתְהִי־לֹו לְמֹוקֵשׁ וּתְהִי־בֹו יַד־פְּלִשְׁתִּים וַיֹּאמֶר שָׁאוּל אֶל־דָּוִד בִּשְׁתַּיִם תִּתְחַתֵּן בִּי הַיֹּום׃
||καὶ ἐνετείλατο Σαουλ τοῖς παισὶν αὐτοῦ λέγων Λαλήσατε ὑμεῖς λάθρᾳ τῷ Δαυιδ λέγοντες Ἰδοὺ ὁ βασιλεὺς θέλει ἐν σοί, καὶ πάντες οἱ παῖδες αὐτοῦ ἀγαπῶσίν σε, καὶ σὺ ἐπιγάμβρευσον τῷ βασιλεῖ.
||And Saul charged his servants saying Speak ye privately to David saying Behold
||And Saul commanded his servants, "Speak to David in private and say, 'Behold, the king has delight in you, and all his servants love you; now then become the king's son-in-law.'"||וַיְצַו שָׁאוּל אֶת־עֲבָדָוק דַּבְּרוּ אֶל־דָּוִד בַּלָּט לֵאמֹר הִנֵּה חָפֵץ בְּךָ הַמֶּלֶךְ וְכָל־עֲבָדָיו אֲהֵבוּךָ וְעַתָּה הִתְחַתֵּן בַּמֶּלֶךְ׃
||καὶ ἐλάλησαν οἱ παῖδες Σαουλ εἰς τὰ ὦτα Δαυιδ τὰ ῥήματα ταῦτα, καὶ εἶπεν Δαυιδ Εἰ κοῦφον ἐν ὀφθαλμοῖς ὑμῶν ἐπιγαμβρεῦσαι βασιλεῖ; κἀγὼ ἀνὴρ ταπεινὸς καὶ οὐχὶ ἔνδοξος.
||And the servants of Saul spoke these words in the ears of David; and David said [Is it] a light thing in your eyes to become son-in-law to the king? Whereas I [am] an humble man an not honourable?
||And Saul's servants spoke those words in the ears of David. And David said, "Does it seem to you a little thing to become the king's son-in-law, seeing that I am a poor man and of no repute?"||וַיְדַבְּרוּ עַבְדֵי שָׁאוּל בְּאָזְנֵי דָוִד אֶת־הַדְּבָרִים הָאֵלֶּה וַיֹּאמֶר דָּוִד הַנְקַלָּה בְעֵינֵיכֶם הִתְחַתֵּן בַּמֶּלֶךְ וְאָנֹכִי אִישׁ־רָשׁ וְנִקְלֶה׃
||καὶ ἀπήγγειλαν οἱ παῖδες Σαουλ αὐτῷ κατὰ τὰ ῥήματα ταῦτα, ἃ ἐλάλησεν Δαυιδ.
||And the servants of Saul reported to him according to these words which David spoke.
||And the servants of Saul told him, "Thus and so did David speak."||וַיַּגִּדוּ עַבְדֵי שָׁאוּל לֹו לֵאמֹר כַּדְּבָרִים הָאֵלֶּה דִּבֶּר דָּוִד׃ ף
||καὶ εἶπεν Σαουλ Τάδε ἐρεῖτε τῷ Δαυιδ Οὐ βούλεται ὁ βασιλεὺς ἐν δόματι ἀλλ' ἢ ἐν ἑκατὸν ἀκροβυστίαις ἀλλοφύλων ἐκδικῆσαι εἰς ἐχθροὺς τοῦ βασιλέως· καὶ Σαουλ ἐλογίσατο αὐτὸν ἐμβαλεῖν εἰς χεῖρας τῶν ἀλλοφύλων.
||And Saul said Thus shall ye speak to David The king wants no gift but a hundred foreskins of the Philistines to avenge himself on the kings enemies. Now Saul thought to cast him into the hands of the Philistines.
||Then Saul said, "Thus shall you say to David, 'The king desires no marriage present except a hundred foreskins of the Philistines, that he may be avenged of the king's enemies.'" Now Saul thought to make David fall by the hand of the Philistines.||וַיֹּאמֶר שָׁאוּל כֹּה־תֹאמְרוּ לְדָוִד אֵין־חֵפֶץ לַמֶּלֶךְ בְּמֹהַר כִּי בְּמֵאָה עָרְלֹות פְּלִשְׁתִּים לְהִנָּקֵם בְּאֹיְבֵי הַמֶּלֶךְ וְשָׁאוּל חָשַׁב לְהַפִּיל אֶת־דָּוִד בְּיַד־פְּלִשְׁתִּים׃
||καὶ ἀπαγγέλλουσιν οἱ παῖδες Σαουλ τῷ Δαυιδ τὰ ῥήματα ταῦτα, καὶ εὐθύνθη ὁ λόγος ἐν ὀφθαλμοῖς Δαυιδ ἐπιγαμβρεῦσαι τῷ βασιλεῖ.
||And the servants of Saul report these words to David and David was well pleased to become the son-in-law to the king.
||And when his servants told David these words, it pleased David well to be the king's son-in-law. Before the time had expired,||וַיַּגִּדוּ עֲבָדָיו לְדָוִד אֶת־הַדְּבָרִים הָאֵלֶּה וַיִּשַׁר הַדָּבָר בְּעֵינֵי דָוִד לְהִתְחַתֵּן בַּמֶּלֶךְ וְלֹא מָלְאוּ הַיָּמִים׃
||καὶ ἀνέστη Δαυιδ καὶ ἐπορεύθη αὐτὸς καὶ οἱ ἄνδρες αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐπάταξεν ἐν τοῖς ἀλλοφύλοις ἑκατὸν ἄνδρας καὶ ἀνήνεγκεν τὰς ἀκροβυστίας αὐτῶν τῷ βασιλεῖ καὶ ἐπιγαμβρεύεται τῷ βασιλεῖ, καὶ δίδωσιν αὐτῷ τὴν Μελχολ θυγατέρα αὐτοῦ αὐτῷ εἰς γυναῖκα.
||And David arose and went he and his men and smote among the Philistines a hundred men: and he brought their foreskins and he becomes the king's son-in-law
||David arose and went, along with his men, and killed two hundred of the Philistines; and David brought their foreskins, which were given in full number to the king, that he might become the king's son-in-law. And Saul gave him his daughter Michal for a wife.||וַיָּקָם דָּוִד וַיֵּלֶךְ הוּא וַאֲנָשָׁיו וַיַּךְ בַּפְּלִשְׁתִּים מָאתַיִם אִישׁ וַיָּבֵא דָוִד אֶת־עָרְלֹתֵיהֶם וַיְמַלְאוּם לַמֶּלֶךְ לְהִתְחַתֵּן בַּמֶּלֶךְ וַיִּתֶּן־לֹו שָׁאוּל אֶת־מִיכַל בִּתֹּו לְאִשָּׁה׃ ס
||καὶ εἶδεν Σαουλ ὅτι κύριος μετὰ Δαυιδ καὶ πᾶς Ισραηλ ἠγάπα αὐτόν,
||And Saul saw that the Lord [was] with David and [that] all Israel loved him.
||But when Saul saw and knew that the LORD was with David, and that all Israel loved him,||וַיַּרְא שָׁאוּל וַיֵּדַע כִּי יְהוָה עִם־דָּוִד וּמִיכַל בַּת־שָׁאוּל אֲהֵבַתְהוּ׃
||καὶ προσέθετο εὐλαβεῖσθαι ἀπὸ Δαυιδ ἔτι.
||And he was yet more afraid of David.
||Saul was still more afraid of David. So Saul was David's enemy continually.||וַיֹּאסֶף שָׁאוּל לֵרֹא מִפְּנֵי דָוִד עֹוד וַיְהִי שָׁאוּל אֹיֵב אֶת־דָּוִד כָּל־הַיָּמִים׃ ס
