David Avenges the Gibeonites

1Καὶ ἐγένετο λιμὸς ἐν ταῖς ἡμέραις Δαυεὶδ τρία ἔτη, ἐνιαυτὸς ἐχόμενος ἐνιαυτοῦ, καὶ ἐζήτησεν Δαυεὶδ τὸ πρόσωπον τοῦ κυρίου· καὶ εἶπεν Κύριος Ἐπὶ Σαοὺλ καὶ ἐπὶ τὸν οἶκον αὐτοῦ ἀδικία διὰ τὸ αὐτὸν θανάτῳ αἱμάτων, περὶ οὗ ἐθανάτωσεν τοὺς Γαβαωνείτας. 2καὶ ἐκάλεσεν ὁ βασιλεὺς Δαυεὶδ τοὺς Γαβαωνείτας καὶ εἶπεν πρὸς αὐτούς· καὶ οἱ Γαβαωνεῖται οὐχ υἱοὶ Ἰσραήλ εἰσιν, ὅτι ἀλλ᾽ ἢ ἐκ τοῦ αἵματος τοῦ Ἀμορραίου, καὶ οἱ υἱοὶ Ἰσραὴλ ὤμοσαν αὐτοῖς· καὶ ἐζήτησεν Σαοὺλ πατάξαι αὐτοὺς ἐν τῷ ζηλῶσαι αὐτὸν τοὺς υἱοὺς Ἰσραὴλ καὶ Ἰούδα· 3καὶ εἶπεν Δαυεὶδ πρὸς τοὺς Γαβαωνείτας Τί ποιήσω ὑμῖν καὶ ἐν τίνι ἐξιλάσωμαι, καὶ εὐλογήσετε τὴν κληρονομίαν Κυρίου; 4καὶ εἶπαν αὐτῷ οἱ Γαβαωνεῖται Οὐκ ἔστιν ἡμῖν ἀργύριον καὶ χρυσίον μετὰ Σαοὺλ καὶ μετὰ τοῦ οἴκου αὐτοῦ, καὶ οὐκ ἔστιν ἡμῖν ἀνὴρ θανατῶσαι ἐν Ἰσραήλ. καὶ εἶπεν Τί ὑμεῖς λέγετε καὶ ποιήσω ὑμῖν; 5καὶ εἶπαν πρὸς τὸν βασιλέα Ὁ ἀνὴρ συνετέλεσεν ἐφ᾽ ἡμᾶς καὶ ἐδίωξεν ἡμᾶς, ὃς παρελογίσατο ἐξολεθρεῦσαι ἡμᾶς· ἀφανίσωμεν αὐτὸν τοῦ μὴ ἑστάναι αὐτὸν ἐν παντὶ ὁρίῳ Ἰσραήλ. 6δότω ἡμῖν ἑπτὰ ἄνδρας ἐκ τῶν υἱῶν αὐτοῦ, καὶ ἐξηλιάσωμεν αὐτοὺς τῷ κυρίῳ ἐν Γαβαὼν Σαοὺλ ἐκλεκτοὺς Κυρίου. καὶ εἶπεν ὁ βασιλεύς Ἐγὼ δώσω.

7καὶ ἐφείσατο ὁ βασιλεὺς ἐπὶ Μεμφιβόσθε υἱὸν Ἰωναθὰν υἱοῦ Σαοὺλ διὰ τὸν ὅρκον Κυρίου τὸν ἀνὰ μέσον αὐτῶν, καὶ ἀνὰ μέσον Δαυεὶδ καὶ ἀνὰ μέσον Ἰωναθὰν υἱοῦ Σαούλ. 8καὶ ἔλαβεν ὁ βασιλεὺς τοὺς δύο υἱοὺς Ῥεσφὰ θυγατρὸς Αἰὰ οὓς ἔτεκεν τῷ Σαούλ, τὸν Ἐρμωνοεὶ καὶ τὸν Μεμφιβόσθε, καὶ τοὺς πέντε υἱοὺς Μιχὸλ θυγατρὸς Σαοὺλ οὓς ἔτεκεν τῷ Σερεὶ υἱῷ Βερζελλεὶ τῷ Μωουλαθεί, 9καὶ ἔδωκεν αὐτοὺς ἐν χειρὶ τῶν Γαβαωνειτῶν· καὶ ἐξηλίασαν αὐτοὺς ἐν τῷ ὄρει ἔναντι Κυρίου, καὶ ἔπεσαν οἱ ἑπτὰ αὐτοὶ ἐπὶ τὸ αὐτό· καὶ αὐτοὶ δὲ ἐθανατώθησαν ἐν ἡμέραις θερισμοῦ ἐν πρώτοις, ἐν ἀρχῇ θερισμοῦ κριθῶν.

10καὶ ἔλαβεν Ῥεσφὰ θυγάτηρ Αἰὰ τὸν σάκκον καὶ ἔπηξεν αὐτῇ πρὸς τὴν πέτραν ἐν ἀρχῇ θερισμοῦ κριθῶν ἕως ἔσταξεν ἐπ᾽ αὐτοὺς ὕδωρ ἐκ τοῦ οὐρανοῦ, καὶ οὐκ ἔδωκεν τὰ πετεινὰ τοῦ οὐρανοῦ καταπαῦσαι ἐπ᾽ αὐτοὺς ἡμέρας καὶ τὰ θηρία τοῦ ἀγροῦ νυκτός. 11καὶ ἀπηγγέλη τῷ Δαυεὶδ ὅσα ἐποίησεν Ῥεσφὰ θυγάτηρ Αἰὰ παλλακὴ Σαούλ· καὶ ἐξελύθησαν, καὶ κατέλαβεν αὐτοὺς Δὰν υἱὸς Ἰωὰ ἐκ τῶν ἀπογόνων τῶν γιγάντων. 12καὶ ἐπορεύθη Δαυεὶδ καὶ ἔλαβεν τὰ ὀστᾶ Σαοὺλ καὶ τὰ ὀστᾶ Ἰωναθὰν τοῦ υἱοῦ αὐτοῦ παρὰ τῶν ἀνδρῶν υἱῶν Ἰαβεὶς Γαλαάδ, οἳ ἔκλεψαν αὐτοὺς ἐκ τῆς πλατείας Βαίθ, ὅτι ἔστησαν αὐτοὺς ἐκεῖ οἱ ἀλλόφυλοι ἐν ἡμέρᾳ ᾗ ἐπάταξαν οἱ ἀλλόφυλοι τὸν Σαοὺλ ἐν Γελβοῦε. 13καὶ ἀνήνεγκεν ἐκεῖθεν τὰ ὀστᾶ Σαοὺλ καὶ τὰ ὀστᾶ Ἰωναθὰν τοῦ υἱοῦ αὐτοῦ, καὶ συνήγαγεν τὰ ὀστᾶ τῶν ἐξηλιασμένων. 14καὶ ἔθαψαν τὰ ὀστᾶ Σαοὺλ καὶ τὰ ὀστᾶ Ἰωναθὰν τοῦ υἱοῦ αὐτοῦ καὶ τῶν ἡλιασθέντων τῶν ἐν γῇ Βενιαμεὶν ἐν τῇ πλευρᾷ ἐν τῷ τάφῳ Κεὶς τοῦ πατρὸς αὐτοῦ· καὶ ἐποίησαν πάντα ὅσα ἐνετείλατο ὁ βασιλεύς, καὶ ἐπήκουσεν ὁ θεὸς τῇ γῇ μετὰ ταῦτα.

Four Battles against the Philistines

15Καὶ ἐγενήθη ἔτι πόλεμος τοῖς ἀλλοφύλοις μετὰ Ἰσραήλ· καὶ κατέβη Δαυεὶδ καὶ οἱ παῖδες αὐτοῦ μετ᾽ αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐπολέμησαν μετὰ τῶν ἀλλοφύλων· καὶ ἐπορεύθη Δαυείδ. 16καὶ Ἰεσβὶ ὃς ἦν ἐν τοῖς ἐκγόνοις τοῦ Ῥαφά, καὶ ὁ σταθμὸς τοῦ δόρατος αὐτοῦ τριακοσίων σίκλων ὁλκῇ χαλκοῦ, καὶ αὐτὸς περιεζωσμένος κορύνην, καὶ διενοεῖτο πατάξαι τὸν Δαυείδ. 17καὶ ἐβοήθησεν αὐτῷ Ἀβεσσὰ υἱὸς Σαρουίας, καὶ ἐπάταξεν τὸν ἀλλόφυλον καὶ ἐθανάτωσεν αὐτόν· τότε ὤμοσαν οἱ ἄνδρες Δαυεὶδ λέγοντες Οὐκ ἐξελεύσῃ ἔτι μεθ᾽ ἡμῶν εἰς πόλεμον, καὶ οὐ μὴ σβέσῃς τὸν λύχνον Ἰσραήλ.

18Καὶ ἐγενήθη μετὰ ταῦτα ἔτι πόλεμος ἐν Γὲθ μετὰ τῶν ἀλλοφύλων· τότε ἐπάταξεν Ὀεβοχὰ ὁ Ἁστατωθεὶ τὸν Σὲφ τὸν ἐν τοῖς ἐκγόνοις τοῦ Ῥαφά. 19καὶ ἐγένετο ὁ πόλεμος ἐν Ῥὸμ μετὰ τῶν ἀλλοφύλων· καὶ ἐπάταξεν Ἐλεανὰν υἱὸς Ἀριωργεὶμ ὁ Βαιθλεεμμείτης τὸν Γοδολίαν τὸν Χετταῖον, καὶ τὸ ξύλον τοῦ δόρατος αὐτοῦ ὡς ἀντίον ὑφαινόντων. 20καὶ ἐγένετο ἔτι πόλεμος ἐν Γέθ· καὶ ἦν ἀνὴρ Μαδών, καὶ οἱ δάκτυλοι τῶν χειρῶν αὐτοῦ καὶ οἱ δάκτυλοι τῶν ποδῶν αὐτοῦ ἓξ καὶ ἕξ, εἴκοσι τέσσαρες ἀριθμῷ· καί γε αὐτὸς ἐτέχθη τῷ Ῥαφά. 21καὶ ὠνείδισεν τὸν Ἰσραήλ, καὶ ἐπάταξεν αὐτὸν Ἰωναθὰν υἱός Σεμεεὶ ἀδελφοῦ Δαυείδ. 22οἱ τέσσαρες οὗτοι ἐτέχθησαν ἀπόγονοι τῶν γιγάντων ἐν Γὲθ τῷ Ῥαφὰ οἶκος, καὶ ἔπεσαν ἐν χειρὶ Δαυεὶδ καὶ ἐν χειρὶ τῶν δούλων αὐτοῦ.
