||Congregata sunt ergo Philisthiim universa agmina in Aphec: sed et Isra?l castrametatus est super fontem qui erat in Jezrahel.
||Therfor alle the cumpenyes of Filisteis weren gaderid in Aphec, but also Israel settide tentis aboue the welle that was in Jezrael.
||Now all the troops of the Philistines were gathered together to Aphec: and Israel also camped by the fountain which is in Jezrahel.
||The Philistines reject David. 1Sm.29.1-11
||Et satrap? quidem Philisthiim incedebant in centuriis et millibus: David autem et viri ejus erant in novissimo agmine cum Achis.
||And sotheli the princis of Filisteis yeden in cumpenyes of an hundrid, and in thousyndis; forsothe Dauid and hise men weren in the laste cumpenye with Achis.
||And the lords of the Philistines marched with their hundreds and their thousands: but David and his men were in the rear with Achis.
||Dixeruntque principes Philisthiim ad Achis : Quid sibi volunt Hebr?i isti ? Et ait Achis ad principes Philisthiim : Num ignoratis David, qui fuit servus Saul regis Isra?l, et est apud me multis diebus, vel annis, et non inveni in eo quidquam ex die qua transfugit ad me, usque ad diem hanc ?
||And the princes of Filisteis seiden to Achis, What wolen these Ebreis to hem silf? And Achis seide to the princes of Filisteis, Whether ye knowen not Dauid, that was the seruaunt of Saul, kyng of Israel? and he was with me in many daies, ether yeeris, and Y foond not in hym ony thing, fro the dai, in which he fledde to me til to this dai.
||And the princes of the Philistines said to Achis: What mean these Hebrews? And Achis said to the princes of the Philistines: Do you not know David, who was the servant of Saul the king of Israel, and hath been with me many days, or years, and I have found no fault in him, since the day that he fled over to me until this day?
||Irati sunt autem adversus eum principes Philisthiim, et dixerunt ei : Revertatur vir iste, et sedeat in loco suo, in quo constituisti eum, et non descendat nobiscum in pr?lium, ne fiat nobis adversarius, cum pr?liari c?perimus : quomodo enim aliter poterit placare dominum suum, nisi in capitibus nostris ?
||Sotheli the princes of Filisteis weren wrooth ayens hym, and seiden to hym, The man turne ayen, and sitte in his place, in which thou hast ordened hym, and come he not down with vs in to batel, lest he be maad aduersarie to vs, whanne we han bigunne to fiyte; for hou mai he plese his lord in other maner, no but in oure heedis?
||But the princes of the Philistines were angry with him, and they said to him: Let this man return, and abide in his place, which thou hast appointed him, and let him not go down with us to battle, lest he be an adversary to us, when we shall begin to fight: for how can he otherwise appease his master, but with our heads?
||Nonne iste est David, cui cantabant in choris, dicentes:
Percussit Saul in millibus suis, et David in decem millibus suis?
|Whether this is not Dauid, to whom thei sungen in daunsis, and seiden, Saul smoot in thousyndis, and Dauid smoot in hise ten thousyndis?
||Is not this David, to whom they sung in their dances, saying: Saul slew his thousands, and David his ten thousands?
||Vocavit ergo Achis David, et ait ei : Vivit Dominus, quia rectus es tu, et bonus in conspectu meo : et exitus tuus, et introitus tuus mecum est in castris : et non inveni in te quidquam mali ex die qua venisti ad me, usque in diem hanc : sed satrapis non places.
||Therfor Achis clepide Dauid, and seide to hym, The Lord lyueth; for thou art riytful, and good in my siyt, and thi goyng out and thin entryng is with me in castels, and Y foond not in thee ony thing of yuel, fro the day in which thou camest to me til to this dai; but thou plesist not the princis.
||Then Achis called David, and said to him: As the Lord liveth, thou art upright and good in my sight: and so is thy going out, and thy coming in with me in the army: and I have not found my evil in thee, since the day that thou camest to me unto this day: but thou pleasest not the lords.
||Revertere ergo, et vade in pace, et non offendas oculos satraparum Philisthiim.
||Therfor turne thou ayen, and go in pees, and offende thou not the iyen of princis of Filisteis.
||Return therefore, and go in peace, and offend not the eyes of the princes of the Philistines.
||Dixitque David ad Achis: Quid enim feci, et quid invenisti in me servo tuo, a die qua fui in conspectu tuo usque in diem hanc, ut non veniam et pugnem contra inimicos domini meiregis?
||And Dauid seide to Achis, Forsothe what dide Y, and what hast thou founde in me thi seruaunt, fro the dai in which Y was in thi siyt til in to this dai, that Y come not, and fiyte ayens the enemyes of my lord the kyng?
||And David said to Achis: But what have I done, and what hast thou found in me thy servant, from the day that I have been in thy sight until this day, that I may not go and fight against the enemies of my lord the king?
||Respondens autem Achis, locutus est ad David: Scio quia bonus es tu in oculis meis, sicut angelus Dei: sed principes Philisthinorum dixerunt: Non ascendet nobiscum in pr?lium.
||Forsothe Achis answeride, and spak to Dauid, Y woot that thou art good, and as the aungel of God in my iyen; but the princes of Filisteis seyden, He schal not stie with vs in to batel.
||And Achis answering said to David: I know that thou art good in my sight, as an angel of God: but the princes of the Philistines have said: He shall not go up with us to the battle.
||Igitur consurge mane tu, et servi domini tui qui venerunt tecum: et cum de nocte surrexeritis, et c?perit dilucescere, pergite.
||Therfor rise thou eerli, thou, and thi seruauntis that camen with thee; and whanne ye han ryse bi nyyt, and it bigynneth to be cleer, go ye.
||Therefore arise in the morning, thou, and the servants of thy lord, who came with thee: and when you are up before day, and it shall begin to be light, go on your way.
||Surrexit itaque de nocte David, ipse et viri ejus, ut proficiscerentur mane, et reverterentur ad terram Philisthiim: Philisthiim autem ascenderunt in Jezrahel.
||Therfor Dauid roos bi nyyt, he and hise men, that thei schulden go forth eerli, and turne ayen to the lond of Fylisteis; sotheli Filisteis stieden in to Jezrael.
||So David and his men arose in the night, that they might set forward in the morning, and returned to the land of the Philistines: and the Philistines went up to Jezrahel.
