David Anointed King of Judah

1Καὶ ἐγένετο μετὰ ταῦτα καὶ ἐπηρώτησεν Δαυεὶδ ἐν Κυρίῳ λέγων Εἰ ἀναβῶ εἰς μίαν τῶν πόλεων Ἰούδα; καὶ εἶπεν Κύριος πρὸς αὐτόν Ἀνάβηθι. καὶ εἶπεν Δαυείδ Ποῦ ἀναβῶ; καὶ εἶπεν Εἰς Χεβρών. 2καὶ ἀνέβη ἐκεῖ Δαυεὶδ εἰς Χεβρὼν καὶ ἀμφότεραι αἱ γυναῖκες αὐτοῦ, Ἀχινόομ ἡ Ἰσραηλεῖτις καὶ Ἀβειγαία ἡ γυνὴ Ναβὰλ τοῦ Καρμηλίου, 3καὶ οἱ ἄνδρες οἱ μετ᾽ αὐτοῦ ἕκαστος καὶ ὁ οἶκος αὐτοῦ, καὶ κατῴκουν ἐν ταῖς πόλεσιν Χεβρών. 4καὶ ἔρχονται ἄνδρες τῆς Ἰρυδαίας καὶ χρίουσιν τὸν Δαυεὶδ ἐκεῖ τοῦ βασιλεύειν ἐπὶ τὸν οἶκον Ἰούδα. Καὶ ἀπήγγειλαν τῷ Δαυεὶδ λέγοντες ὅτι οἱ ἄνδρες Ἰαβεὶς τῆς Γαλααδείτιδος ἔθαψαν τὸν Σαούλ. 5καὶ ἀπέστειλεν Δαυεὶδ ἀγγέλους πρὸς τοὺς ἡγουμένους Ἰαβεὶς τῆς Γαλααδείτιδος, καὶ εἶπεν πρὸς αὐτούς Εὐλογημένοι ὑμεῖς τῷ κυρίῳ, ὅτι πεποιήκατε τὸ ἔλεος τοῦ θεοῦ ἐπὶ τὸν κύριον ὑμῶν Σαούλ, καὶ ἐθάψατε αὐτόν. 6καὶ νῦν ποιήσαι Κύριος μεθ᾽ ὑμῶν ἔλεος καὶ ἀλήθειαν, καί γε ἐγὼ ποιήσω μεθ᾽ ὑμῶν τὸ ἀγαθὸν τοῦτο, ὅτι ἐποιήσατε τὸ ῥῆμα τοῦτο. 7καὶ νῦν κραταιούσθωσαν αἱ χεῖρες ὑμῶν καὶ γίνεσθε εἰς υἱοὺς δυνατούς, ὅτι τέθνηκεν ὁ κύριος ὑμῶν Σαούλ, καί γε ἐμὲ κέχρικεν ὁ οἶκος Ἰούδα ἐφ᾽ ἑαυτὸν εἰς βασιλέα.

8Καὶ Ἀβεννὴρ υἱὸς Νὴρ ἀρχιστράτηγος τοῦ Σαοὺλ ἔλαβεν τὸν Ἰεβόσθε υἱὸν Σαοὺλ καὶ ἀνεβίβασεν αὐτὸν ἐκ τῆς παρεμβολῆς εἰς Μανάεμ, 9καὶ ἐβασίλευσεν αὐτὸν ἐπὶ τὴν Γαλααδεῖτιν καὶ ἐπὶ τὸν Θασειρεὶ καὶ ἐπὶ τὸν Ἰσραὴλ καὶ ἐπὶ τὸν Ἐφράιμ καὶ ἐπὶ τὸν Βενιαμεὶν καὶ ἐπὶ πάντα Ἰσραήλ. 10τεσσεράκοντα ἐτῶν Ἰεβόσθε υἱὸς Σαοὺλ ὅτε ἐβασίλευσεν ἐπὶ τὸν Ἰσραήλ, καὶ δύο ἔτη ἐβασίλευσεν, πλὴν τοῦ οἴκου Ἰούδα οἳ ἦσαν ὀπίσω Δαυείδ. 11καὶ ἐγένοντο αἱ ἡμέραι ἃς Δαυεὶδ ἐβασίλευσεν ἐν Χεβρὼν ἐπὶ τὸν οἶκον Ἰούδα ἑπτὰ ἔτη καὶ ἓξ μῆνας.

12Καὶ ἐξῆλθεν Ἀβενὴρ υἱὸς Νὴρ καὶ οἱ παῖδες Ἰεβόσθαι υἱοῦ Σαοὺλ ἐκ Μανάειμ εἰς Γαβαώ· 13καὶ Ἰωὰβ υἱὸς Σαρουιὰ καὶ οἱ παῖδες Δαυεὶδ ἐξῆλθον ἐκ Χεβρὼν καὶ συναντῶσιν αὐτοῖς ἐπὶ τὴν κρήνην τὴν Γαβαὼν ἐπὶ τὸ αὐτό, καὶ ἐκάθισαν οὗτοι ἐπὶ τὴν κρήνην τὴν Γαβαὼν ἐντεῦθεν καὶ οὗτοι ἐπὶ τὴν κρήνην ἐντεῦθεν. 14καὶ εἶπεν Ἀβεννὴρ πρὸς Ἰωάβ Ἀναστήτωσαν δὴ τὰ παιδάρια καὶ παιξάτωσαν ἐνώπιον ἡμῶν· καὶ εἶπεν Ἰωάβ Ἀναστήτωσαν. 15καὶ ἀνέστησαν καὶ παρῆλθον ἐν ἀριθμῷ τῶν παίδων Βενιαμεὶν δώδεκα τῶν Ἰεβόσθε υἱοῦ Σαοὺλ καὶ δώδεκα ἐκ τῶν παίδων Δαυείδ. 16καὶ ἐκράτησαν ἕκαστος τῇ χειρὶ τὴν κεφαλὴν τοῦ πλησίον αὐτοῦ, καὶ μάχαιρα αὐτοῦ εἰς πλευρὰν τοῦ πλησίον αὐτοῦ, καὶ πίπτουσιν κατὰ τὸ αὐτό· καὶ ἐκλήθη τὸ ὄνομα τοῦ τόπου ἐκείνου Μερὶς τῶν ἐπιβούλων, ἥ ἐστιν ἐν Γαβαών. 17καὶ ἐγένετο ὁ πόλεμος σκληρὸς ὥστε λίαν ἐν τῇ ἡμέρᾳ ἐκείνῃ· καὶ ἔπταισεν Ἀβεννὴρ καὶ ἄνδρες Ἰσραὴλ ἐνώπιον παίδων Δαυείδ.

18καὶ ἐγένοντο ἐκεῖ τρεῖς υἱοὶ Σαρουιά, Ἰωὰβ καὶ Ἀβεσσὰ καὶ Ἀσαήλ· καὶ Ἀσαὴλ κοῦφος τοῖς ποσὶν αὐτοῦ ὡσεὶ μία δορκὰς ἐν ἀγρῷ. 19καὶ κατεδίωξεν Ἀσαὴλ ὀπίσω Ἀβεννήρ, καὶ οὐκ ἐξέκλινεν τοῦ πορεύεσθαι εἰς δεξιὰ οὐδὲ εἰς ἀριστερὰ κατόπισθεν Ἀβεννήρ. 20καὶ ἐπέβλεψεν Ἀβεννὴρ εἰς τὰ ὀπίσω αὐτοῦ καὶ εἶπεν Εἰ σὺ εἶ αὐτὸς Ἀσαήλ; καὶ εἶπεν Ἐγώ εἰμι. 21καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῷ Ἀβεννήρ Ἔκκλινον σὺ εἰς τὰ δεξιὰ ἢ εἰς τὰ ἀριστερά, καὶ κάτασχε σαυτῷ ἓν τῶν παιδαρίων καὶ λάβε σεαυτῷ τὴν πανοπλίαν αὐτοῦ· καὶ οὐκ ἠθέλησεν Ἀσαὴλ ἐκκλῖναι ἐκ τῶν ὄπισθεν αὐτοῦ. 22καὶ προσέθετο ἔτι Ἀβεννὴρ λέγων τῷ Ἀσαήλ Ἀπόστηθι ἀπ᾽ ἐμοῦ, ἵνα μὴ πατάξω σε εἰς τὴν γῆν· καὶ πῶς ἀρῶ τὸ πρόσωπόν μου πρὸς Ἰωάβ; 23καὶ ποῦ ἐστιν ταῦτα; ἐπίστρεφε πρὸς Ἰωὰβ τὸν ἀδελφόν σου· καὶ οὐκ ἐβούλετο τοῦ ἀποστῆναι. καὶ τύπτει αὐτὸν Ἀβεννὴρ ἐν τῷ ὀπίσω τοῦ δόρατος ἐπὶ τὴν ψόαν, καὶ διεξῆλθεν τὸ δόρυ ἐκ τῶν ὀπίσω αὐτοῦ, καὶ πίπτει ἐκεῖ καὶ ἀποθνήσκει ὑποκάτω αὐτοῦ· καὶ ἐγένετο πᾶς ὁ ἐρχόμενος ἕως τοῦ τόπου οὗ ἔπεσεν ἐκεῖ Ἀσαὴλ καὶ ἀπέθανεν, καὶ ὑφίστατο.

24καὶ κατεδίωξεν Ἰωὰβ καὶ Ἀβεσσὰ ὀπίσω Ἀβεννήρ, καὶ ὁ ἥλιος ἔδυνεν· καὶ αὐτοὶ εἰσῆλθον ἕως τοῦ βουνοῦ Ἀμμάν, ὅ ἐστιν ἐπὶ προσώπου Γαί, ὁδὸν ἔρημον Γαβαών. 25καὶ συναθροίζονται υἱοὶ Βενιαμεὶν οἱ ὀπίσω Ἀβεννήρ, καὶ ἐγενήθησαν εἰς συνάντησιν μίαν καὶ ἔστησαν ἐπὶ κεφαλὴν βουνοῦ ἑνός. 26καὶ ἐκάλεσεν Ἀβεννὴρ Ἰωὰβ καὶ εἶπεν Μὴ εἰς νῖκος καταφάγεται ἡ ῥομφαία; ἢ οὐκ οἶδας ὅτι πικρὰ ἔσται εἰς τὰ ἔσχατα; καὶ ἕως πότε οὐ μὴ εἴπῃς τῷ λαῷ ἀναστρέφειν ἀπὸ ὄπισθεν τῶν ἀδελφῶν ἡμῶν; 27καὶ εἶπεν Ἰωάβ Ζῇ Κύριος, ὅτι εἰ μὴ ἐλάλησας, διότι τότε ἐκ πρωίθεν ἀνέβη ὁ λαὸς ἕκαστος κατόπισθεν τοῦ ἀδελφοῦ αὐτοῦ. 28καὶ ἐσάλπισεν Ἰωὰβ τῇ σάλπιγγι, καὶ ἀπέστησαν πᾶς ὁ λαὸς καὶ οὐ κατεδίωξαν ὀπίσω τοῦ Ἰσραήλ, καὶ οὐ προσέθεντο ἔτι τοῦ πολεμεῖν. 29καὶ Ἀβεννὴρ καὶ οἱ ἄνδρες αὐτοῦ ἀπῆλθον εἰς δυσμὰς ὅλην τὴν νύκτα ἐκείνην, καὶ διέβαιναν τὸν Ἰορδάνην καὶ ἐπορεύθησαν ὅλην τὴν παρατείνουσαν, καὶ ἔρχονται εἰς τὴν παρεμβολήν.

30καὶ Ἰωὰβ ἀνέστρεψεν ὄπισθεν ἀπὸ τοῦ Ἀβεννὴρ καὶ συνήθροισεν πάντα τὸν λαόν, καὶ ἐπεσκέπησαν τῶν παίδων Δαυεὶδ ἐννέα καὶ δέκα ἄνδρες. 31καὶ Ἀσαὴλ καὶ οἱ παῖδες Δαυεὶδ ἐπάταξαν τῶν υἱῶν Βενιαμεὶν τῶν ἀνδρῶν Ἀβεννὴρ τριακοσίους ἑξήκοντα ἄνδρας παρ᾽ αὐτοῦ. 32καὶ αἴρουσιν τὸν Ἀσαὴλ καὶ θάπτουσιν αὐτὸν ἐν τῷ τάφῳ τοῦ πατρὸς αὐτοῦ ἐν Βαιθλέεμ· καὶ ἐπορεύθη Ἰωὰβ καὶ οἱ ἄνδρες οἱ μετ᾽ αὐτοῦ ὅλην τὴν νύκτα, καὶ διέφαυσεν αὐτοῖς ἐν Χεβρών.
