Absalom Killed

1Καὶ ἐπεσκέψατο Δαυεὶδ τὸν λαὸν τὸν μετ᾽ αὐτοῦ, καὶ κατέστησεν ἐπ᾽ αὐτῶν χιλιάρχους καὶ ἑκατοντάρχους. 2καὶ ἀπέστειλεν Δαυεὶδ τὸν λαὸν τὸ τρίτον ἐν χειρὶ Ἰωάβ, καὶ τὸ τρίτον ἐν χειρὶ Ἀβεισὰ υἱοῦ Σαρουίας ἀδελφοῦ Ἰωάβ, καὶ τὸ τρίτον ἐν χειρὶ Ἐθθεὶ τοῦ Γεθθαίου· καὶ εἶπεν Δαυεὶδ πρὸς τὸν λαόν Ἐξελθὼν ἐξελεύσομαι καί γε ἐγὼ μεθ᾽ ὑμῶν. 3καὶ εἶπαν Οὐκ ἐξελεύσῃ, ὅτι ἐὰν φυγῇ φύγωμεν, οὐ θήσουσιν ἐφ᾽ ἡμᾶς καρδίαν, καὶ ἐὰν ἀποθάνωμεν τὸ ἥμισυ ἡμῶν, οὐ θήσουσιν ἐφ᾽ ἡμᾶς καρδίαν, ὅτι σὺ ὡς ἡμεῖς δέκα χιλιάδες· καὶ νῦν ἀγαθὸν ὅτι ἔσῃ ἡμῖν ἐν τῇ πόλει βοήθεια τοῦ βοηθεῖν. 4καὶ εἶπεν πρὸς αὐτοὺς ὁ βασιλεύς Ὃ ἐὰν ἀρέσῃ ἐν ὀφθαλμοῖς ὑμῶν ποιήσω· καὶ ἔστη ὁ βασιλεὺς ἀνὰ χεῖρα τῆς πύλης, καὶ πᾶς ὁ λαὸς ἐξεπορεύετο εἰς ἑκατοντάδας καὶ εἰς χιλιάδας. 5καὶ ἐνετείλατο ὁ βασιλεὺς τῷ Ἰωὰβ καὶ τῷ Ἀβεισὰ καὶ τῷ Ἐθθεὶ λέγων Φείσασθέ μου τοῦ παιδαρίου τοῦ Ἀβεσσαλώμ· καὶ πᾶς ὁ λαὸς ἤκουσεν ἐντελλομένου τοῦ βασιλέως πᾶσιν τοῖς ἄρχουσιν ὑπὲρ Ἀβεσσαλώμ.

6καὶ ἐξῆλθεν πᾶς ὁ λαὸς εἰς τὸν δρυμὸν ἐξ ἐναντίας Ἰσραήλ· καὶ ἐγένετο ὁ πόλεμος ἐν τῷ δρυμῷ Ἐφράιμ. 7καὶ ἔπταισεν ἐκεῖ ὁ λαὸς Ἰσραὴλ ἐνώπιον τῶν παίδων Δαυείδ, καὶ ἐγένετο ἡ θραῦσις μεγάλη ἐν τῇ ἡμέρᾳ ἐκείνῃ, εἴκοσι χιλιάδες ἀνδρῶν. 8καὶ ἐγένετο ἐκεῖ ὁ πόλεμος διεσπαρμένος ἐπὶ πρόσωπον πάσης τῆς γῆς· καὶ ἐπλεόνασεν ὁ δρυμὸς τοῦ καταφαγεῖν ἐκ τοῦ λαοῦ ὑπὲρ οὓς κατέφαγεν ἐν τῷ λαῷ ἡ μάχαιρα ἐν τῇ ἡμέρᾳ ἐκείνῃ.

9καὶ συνήντησεν Ἀβεσσαλὼμ ἐνώπιον τῶν παίδων Δαυείδ· καὶ Ἀβεσσαλὼμ ἐπιβεβηκὼς ἐπὶ τοῦ ἡμιόνου αὐτοῦ, καὶ εἰσῆλθεν ὁ ἡμίονος ὑπὸ τὸ δάσος τῆς δρυὸς τῆς μεγάλης, καὶ ἐκρεμάσθη ἡ κεφαλὴ αὐτοῦ ἐν τῇ δρυί· καὶ ἐκρεμάσθη ἀνὰ μέσον τοῦ οὐρανοῦ καὶ ἀνὰ μέσον τῆς γῆς, καὶ ὁ ἡμίονος ὑποκάτω αὐτοῦ παρῆλθεν. 10καὶ εἶδεν ἀνὴρ εἷς καὶ ἀνήγγειλεν Ἰωὰβ καὶ εἶπεν Ἰδοὺ ἑόρακα τὸν Ἀβεσσαλὼμ κρεμάμενον ἐν τῇ δρυί. 11καὶ εἶπεν Ἰωὰβ τῷ ἀνδρὶ τῷ ἀναγγέλλοντι Καὶ ἰδοὺ ἑόρακας· τί ὅτι οὐκ ἐπάταξας αὐτὸν εἰς τὴν γῆν; καὶ ἐγὼ ἂν δεδώκειν σοι δέκα ἀργυρίου καὶ παραζώνην μίαν. 12εἶπεν δὲ ὁ ἀνὴρ πρὸς Ἰωάβ Καὶ ἐγώ εἰμι ἵστημι ἐπὶ τὰς χεῖράς μου χιλίους σίκλους ἀργυρίου, οὐ μὴ ἐπιβάλω χεῖρά μου ἐπὶ τὸν υἱὸν τοῦ βασιλέως· ὅτι ἐν τοῖς ὠσὶν ἡμῶν ἐνετείλατο ὁ βασιλεὺς σοὶ καὶ Ἀβεισὰ καὶ τῷ Ἐθθεὶ λέγων Φυλάξατέ μοι τὸ παιδάριον τὸν Ἀβεσσαλώμ, 13μὴ ποιῆσαι ἐν τῇ ψυχῇ αὐτοῦ ἄδικον· καὶ πᾶς ὁ λόγος οὐ λήσεται ἀπὸ τοῦ βασιλέως, καὶ σὺ στήσῃ ἐξ ἐναντίας. 14καὶ εἶπεν Ἰωάβ Τοῦτο ἐγὼ ἄρξομαι· οὐχ οὕτως μενῶ ἐνώπιόν σου. καὶ ἔλαβεν Ἰωὰβ τρία βέλη ἐν τῇ χειρὶ αὐτοῦ, καὶ ἐνέπηξαν αὐτὰ ἐν τῇ καρδίᾳ Ἀβεσσαλώμ, ἔτι αὐτοῦ ζῶντος ἐν τῇ καρδίᾳ τῆς δρύος. 15καὶ ἐκύκλωσαν δέκα παιδάρια αἴροντα τὰ σκεύη Ἰωάβ, καὶ ἐπάταξαν τὸν Ἀβεσσαλὼμ καὶ ἐθανάτωσαν αὐτόν.

16καὶ ἐσάλπισεν Ἰωὰβ ἐν κερατίνῃ, καὶ ἀπέστρεψεν ὁ λαὸς τοῦ μὴ διώκειν ὀπίσω Ἰσραήλ, ὅτι ἐφείδετο Ἰωὰβ τοῦ λαοῦ. 17καὶ ἔλαβεν τὸν Ἀβεσσαλὼμ καὶ ἔρριψεν αὐτὸν εἰς χάσμα μέγα ἐν τῷ δρυμῷ εἰς τὸν βόθυνον τὸν μέγαν, καὶ ἐστήλωσεν ἐπ᾽ αὐτὸν σωρὸν λίθων μέγαν σφόδρα· καὶ πᾶς Ἰσραὴλ ἔφυγεν ἀνὴρ εἰς τὸ σκήνωμα αὐτοῦ. 18καὶ Ἀβεσσαλὼμ ἔτι ζῶν καὶ ἔστησεν ἑαυτῷ τὴν στήλην ἐν ᾗ ἐλήμφθη καὶ ἐστήλωσεν αὐτὴν λαβεῖν, τὴν στήλην τὴν ἐν τῇ κοιλάδι τοῦ βασιλέως, ὅτι εἶπεν οὐκ ἔστιν αὐτῷ υἱὸς ἕνεκεν τοῦ ἀναμνῆσαι τὸ ὄνομα αὐτοῦ· καὶ ἐκάλεσεν τὴν στήλην Χεὶρ Ἀβεσσαλὼμ ἕως τῆς ἡμέρας ταύτης.

19Καὶ Ἀχειμάας υἱὸς Σαδὼκ εἶπεν Δράμω δὴ καὶ εὐαγγελιῶ τῷ βασιλεῖ ὅτι ἔκρινεν Κύριος ἐκ χειρὸς τῶν ἐχθρῶν αὐτοῦ. 20καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῷ Ἰωάβ Οὐκ ἀνὴρ εὐαγγελίας σὺ ἐν τῇ ἡμέρᾳ ταύτῃ, καὶ εὐαγγελιῇ ἐν ἡμέρᾳ ἄλλῃ· ἐν δὲ τῇ ἡμέρᾳ ταύτῃ οὐκ εὐαγγελιῇ, οὗ εἵνεκεν ὁ υἱὸς τοῦ βασιλέως ἀπέθανεν. 21καὶ εἶπεν Ἰωὰβ τῷ Χουσεί Βαδίσας ἀνάγγειλον τῷ βασιλεῖ ὅσα εἶδες· καὶ προσεκύνησεν Χουσεὶ τῷ Ἰωὰβ καὶ ἐξῆλθεν. 22καὶ προσέθετο ἔτι Ἀχειμάας υἱὸς Σαδὼκ καὶ εἶπεν πρὸς Ἰωάβ Καὶ ἔστω ὅτι δράμω καί γε ἐγὼ ὀπίσω τοῦ Χουσεί· καὶ εἶπεν Ἰωάβ Ἵνα τί τοῦτο τρέχεις, υἱέ μου; δεῦρο, οὐκ ἔστιν σοι εὐαγγελία εἰς ὠφελίαν πορευομένῳ. 23καὶ εἶπεν Τί γὰρ ἐὰν δραμοῦμαι; καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῷ Ἰωάβ Δράμε· καὶ ἔδραμεν Ἀχειμάας ὁδὸν τὴν τοῦ Κεχὰρ καὶ ὑπερέβη τὸν Χουσεί.

24καὶ Δαυεὶδ ἐκάθητο ἀνὰ μέσον τῶν δύο πυλῶν· καὶ ἐπορεύθη ὁ σκοπὸς εἰς τὸ δῶμα τῆς πύλης πρὸς τὸ τεῖχος, καὶ ἐπῆρεν τοὺς ὀφθαλμοὺς αὐτοῦ καὶ εἶδεν, καὶ ἰδοὺ ἀνὴρ τρέχων μόνος ἐνώπιον αὐτοῦ. 25καὶ ἀνεβόησεν ὁ σκοπὸς καὶ ἀπήγγειλεν τῷ βασιλεῖ· καὶ εἶπεν ὁ βασιλεύς Εἰ μόνος ἐστίν, εὐαγγελία ἐν τῷ στόματι αὐτοῦ. καὶ ἐπορεύετο πορευόμενος καὶ ἐγγίζων. 26καὶ εἶδεν ὁ σκοπὸς ἄνδρα ἕτερον τρέχοντα, καὶ ἐβόησεν ὁ σκοπὸς πρὸς τῇ πύλῃ καὶ εἶπεν Ἰδοὺ ἀνὴρ ἕτερος τρέχων μόνος· καὶ εἶπεν ὁ βασιλεύς Καί γε οὗτος εὐαγγελιζόμενος. 27καὶ εἶπεν ὁ σκοπός Ἐγὼ ὁρῶ τὸν δρόμον τοῦ πρώτου ὡς δρόμον Ἀχειμάας υἱοῦ Σαδώκ· καὶ εἶπεν ὁ βασιλεύς Ἀνὴρ ἀγαθὸς οὗτος, καί γε εἰς εὐαγγελίαν ἀγαθὴν ἐλεύσεται.

28καὶ ἐβόησεν Ἀχειμάας καὶ εἶπεν πρὸς τὸν βασιλέα Εἰρήνη· καὶ προσεκύνησεν τῷ βασιλεῖ ἐπὶ πρόσωπον αὐτοῦ ἐπὶ τὴν γῆν καὶ εἶπεν Εὐλογητὸς Κύριος ὁ θεός σου ὃς ἀπέκλεισεν τοὺς ἄνδρας τοὺς μισοῦντας τὴν χεῖρα αὐτῶν ἐν τῷ κυρίῳ μου τῷ βασιλεῖ. 29καὶ εἶπεν ὁ βασιλεύς Εἰρήνη τῷ παιδαρίῳ τῷ Ἀβεσσαλώμ; καὶ εἶπεν Ἀχειμάας Εἶδον τὸ πλῆθος τὸ μέγα τοῦ ἀποστεῖλαι τὸν δοῦλον τοῦ βασιλέως Ἰωὰβ καὶ τὸν δοῦλόν σου, καὶ οὐκ ἔγνων τί ἐκεῖ. 30καὶ εἶπεν ὁ βασιλεύς Ἐπίστρεψον, στηλώθητι ὧδε· καὶ ἐπεστράφη καὶ ἔστη.

31καὶ ἰδοὺ ὁ Χουσεὶ παρεγένετο καὶ εἶπεν τῷ βασιλεῖ Εὐαγγελισθήτω ὁ κύριός μου ὁ βασιλεύς, ὅτι ἔκρινέν σοι Κύριος σήμερον ἐκ χειρὸς πάντων τῶν ἐπεγειρομένων ἐπὶ σέ. 32καὶ εἶπεν ὁ βασιλεὺς πρὸς τὸν Χουσεί Εἰ εἰρήνη τῷ παιδαρίῳ τῷ Ἀβεσσαλώμ; καὶ εἶπεν ὁ Χουσεί Γένοιντο ὡς τὸ παιδάριον οἱ ἐχθροὶ τοῦ κυρίου μου τοῦ βασιλέως καὶ πάντες ὅσοι ἐπανέστησαν ἐπ᾽ αὐτὸν εἰς κακά.

33καὶ ἐταράχθη ὁ βασιλεύς, καὶ ἀνέβη εἰς τὸ ὑπερῷον τῆς πύλης καὶ ἔκλαυσεν· καὶ οὕτως εἶπεν ἐν τῷ πορεύεσθαι αὐτόν Υἱέ μου υἱέ μου Ἀβεσσαλώμ, τίς δῴη τὸν θάνατόν μου ἀντὶ σοῦ; ἐγὼ ἀντὶ σοῦ, Ἀβεσσαλὼμ υἱέ μου υἱέ μου.
