1 And all the tribes of Israel come to David to Chebron, and they said to him, Behold, we [are] thy bone and thy flesh. 2 And heretofore Saul being king over us, thou was he that didst lead out and bring in Israel: and the Lord said to thee, Thou shalt feed my people Israel, and thou shalt be for a leader to my people Israel. 3 And all the elders of Israel come to the king to Chebron; and king David made a covenant with them in Chebron before the Lord; and they anoint David king over all Israel. 4 David [was] thirty years old when he began to reign, and he reigned forty years. 5 Seven years and six months he reigned in Chebron over Juda, and thirty-three years he reigned over all Israel and Juda in Jerusalem. 6 And David and his men, departed to Jerusalem, to the Jebusite that inhabited the land: and it was said to David, Thou shalt not come in hither: for the blind and the lame withstood him, saying, David shall not come in hither. 7 And David took first the hold of Sion: this [is] the city of David. 8 And David said on that day, Every one that smites the Jebusite, let him attack with the dagger both the lame and the blind, and those that hate the soul of David. Therefore they say, The lame and the blind shall not enter into the house of the Lord. 9 And David dwelt in the hold, and it was called the city of David, and he built the city itself round about from the citadel, and [he built] his own house. 10 And David advanced and became great, and the Lord Almighty [was] with him. 11 And Chiram king of Tyre sent messengers to David, and cedar wood, and carpenters, and stone-masons: and they built a house for David. 12 And David knew that the Lord had prepared him to be king over Israel, and that his kingdom was exalted for the sake of his people Israel. 13 And David took again wives and concubines out of Jerusalem, after he came from Chebron: and David had still more sons and daughters born to him. 14 And these [are] the names of those that were born to him in Jerusalem; Sammus, and Sobab, and Nathan, and Solomon. 15 And Ebear, and Elisue, and Naphec, and Jephies. 16 And Elisama, and Elidae, and Eliphalath, Samae, Jessibath, Nathan, Galamaan, Jebaar, Theesus, Eliphalat, Naged, Naphec, Janathan, Leasamys, Baalimath, Eliphaath. 17 And the Philistines heard that David was anointed king over Israel; and all the Philistines went up to seek David; and David heard of it, and went down to the strong hold. 18 And the Philistines came, and assembled in the valley of the giants. 19 And David enquired of the Lord, saying, Shall I go up against the Philistines? and wilt thou deliver them into my hands? and the Lord said to David, Go up, for I will surely deliver the Philistines into thine hands. 20 And David came from Upper Breaches, and smote the Philistines there: and David said, The Lord has destroyed the hostile Philistines before me, as water is dispersed; therefore the name of that place was called Over Breaches. 21 And they leave there their gods, and David and his men with him took them. 22 And the Philistines came up yet again, and assembled in the valley of Giants. 23 And David enquired of the Lord: and the Lord said, Thou shalt not go up to meet them: turn from them, and thou shalt meet them near the place of weeping. 24 And it shall come to pass when thou hearest the sound of a clashing together from the grove of weeping, then thou shalt go down to them, for then the Lord shall go forth before thee to make havoc in the battle with the Philistines. 25 And David did as the Lord commanded him, and smote the Philistines from Gabaon as far as the land of Gazera.
ΚΑΙ παραγίνονται πᾶσαι αἱ φυλαὶ ᾿Ισραὴλ πρὸς Δαυὶδ εἰς Χεβρὼν καὶ εἶπαν αὐτῷ· ἰδοὺ ὀστᾶ σου καὶ σάρκες σου ἡμεῖς· 2 καὶ ἐχθὲς καὶ τρίτην ὄντος Σαοὺλ βασιλέως ἐφ᾿ ἡμῖν, σὺ ἦσθα ὁ ἐξάγων καὶ εἰσάγων τὸν ᾿Ισραήλ, καὶ εἶπε Κύριος πρὸς σέ· σὺ ποιμανεῖς τὸν λαόν μου τὸν ᾿Ισραήλ, καὶ σὺ ἔσῃ εἰς ἡγούμενον ἐπὶ τὸν λαόν μου ᾿Ισραήλ. 3 καὶ ἔρχονται πάντες οἱ πρεσβύτεροι ᾿Ισραὴλ πρὸς τὸν βασιλέα εἰς Χεβρών, καὶ διέθετο αὐτοῖς ὁ βασιλεὺς Δαυὶδ διαθήκην ἐν Χεβρὼν ἐνώπιον Κυρίου, καὶ χρίουσι τὸν Δαυὶδ εἰς βασιλέα ἐπὶ πάντα ᾿Ισραήλ. 4 υἱὸς τριάκοντα ἐτῶν Δαυὶδ ἐν τῷ βασιλεῦσαι αὐτὸν καὶ τεσσαράκοντα ἔτη ἐβασίλευσεν, 5 ἑπτὰ ἔτη καὶ μῆνας ἓξ ἐβασίλευσεν ἐν Χεβρὼν ἐπὶ τὸν ᾿Ιούδαν καὶ τριάκοντα τρία ἔτη ἐβασίλευσεν ἐπὶ πάντα ᾿Ισραὴλ καὶ ᾿Ιούδαν ἐν ῾Ιερουσαλήμ.
6 Καὶ ἀπῆλθε Δαυὶδ καὶ οἱ ἄνδρες αὐτοῦ εἰς ῾Ιερουσαλὴμ πρὸς τὸν ᾿Ιεβουσαῖον τὸν κατοικοῦντα τὴν γῆν. καὶ ἐρρέθη τῷ Δαυίδ· οὐκ εἰσελεύσῃ ὧδε, ὅτι ἀντέστησαν οἱ τυφλοὶ καὶ οἱ χωλοὶ λέγοντες ὅτι οὐκ εἰσελεύσεται Δαυὶδ ὧδε. 7 καὶ κατελάβετο Δαυὶδ τὴν περιοχὴν Σιὼν (αὕτη ἡ πόλις τοῦ Δαυίδ). 8 καὶ εἶπε Δαυὶδ τῇ ἡμέρᾳ ἐκείνῃ· πᾶς τύπτων ᾿Ιεβουσαῖον ἁπτέσθω ἐν παραξιφίδι καὶ τοὺς χωλοὺς καὶ τοὺς τυφλοὺς καὶ τοὺς μισοῦντας τὴν ψυχὴν Δαυίδ· διὰ τοῦτο ἐροῦσι· τυφλοὶ καὶ χωλοὶ οὐκ εἰσελεύσονται εἰς οἶκον Κυρίου. 9 καὶ ἐκάθισε Δαυὶδ ἐν τῇ περιοχῇ, καὶ ἐκλήθη αὕτη ἡ πόλις Δαυίδ· καὶ ᾠκοδόμησεν αὐτὴν πόλιν κύκλῳ ἀπὸ τῆς ἄκρας καὶ τὸν οἶκον αὐτοῦ. 10 καὶ διεπορεύετο Δαυὶδ πορευόμενος καὶ μεγαλυνόμενος, καὶ Κύριος παντοκράτωρ μετ᾿ αὐτοῦ. 11 καὶ ἀπέστειλε Χειρὰμ βασιλεὺς Τύρου ἀγγέλους πρὸς Δαυὶδ καὶ ξύλα κέδρινα καὶ τέκτονας ξύλων καί τέκτονας λίθων καὶ ᾠκοδόμησαν οἶκον τῷ Δαυίδ. 12 καὶ ἔγνω Δαυὶδ ὅτι ἡτοίμασεν αὐτὸν Κύριος εἰς βασιλέα ἐπὶ ᾿Ισραήλ, καὶ ὅτι ἐπῄρθη ἡ βασιλεία αὐτοῦ διὰ τὸν λαὸν αὐτοῦ ᾿Ισραήλ. 13 καὶ ἔλαβε Δαυὶδ ἔτι γυναῖκας καὶ παλλακὰς ἐξ ῾Ιερουσαλὴμ μετὰ τὸ ἐλθεῖν αὐτὸν ἐκ Χεβρών, καὶ ἐγένοντο τῷ Δαυὶδ ἔτι υἱοὶ καὶ θυγατέρες. 14 καὶ ταῦτα τὰ ὀνόματα τῶν γεννηθέντων αὐτῷ ἐν ῾Ιερουσαλήμ· Σαμμοὺς καὶ Σωβὰβ καὶ Νάθαν καὶ Σαλωμὼν 15 καὶ ᾿Εβεὰρ καὶ ᾿Ελισοὺς καὶ Ναφὲκ καὶ ᾿Ιεφιὲς 16 καὶ ᾿Ελισαμὰ καὶ ᾿Ελιδαὲ καὶ ᾿Ελιφαλάθ, Σαμαέ, ᾿Ιεσσιβάθ, Νάθαν, Γαλαμαάν, ᾿Ιεβαάρ, Θεησοῦς, ᾿Ελιφαλάτ, Ναγέδ, Ναφέκ, ᾿Ιωνάθαν, Λεασαμύς, Βααλιμάθ, ᾿Ελιφαάθ.
17 Καὶ ἤκουσαν οἱ ἀλλόφυλοι ὅτι κέχρισται Δαυὶδ βασιλεὺς ἐπὶ ᾿Ισραήλ, καὶ ἀνέβησαν πάντες οἱ ἀλλόφυλοι ζητεῖν τὸν Δαυίδ· καὶ ἤκουσε Δαυὶδ καὶ κατέβη εἰς τὴν περιοχήν. 18 καὶ οἱ ἀλλόφυλοι παραγίνονται καὶ συνέπεσαν εἰς τὴν κοιλάδα τῶν Τιτάνων 19 καὶ ἠρώτησε Δαυὶδ διὰ Κυρίου λέγων· εἰ ἀναβῶ πρὸς τοὺς ἀλλοφύλους καὶ παραδώσεις αὐτοὺς εἰς τὰς χεῖράς μου; καὶ εἶπε Κύριος πρὸς Δαυίδ· ἀνάβαινε, ὅτι παραδιδοὺς παραδώσω τοὺς ἀλλοφύλους εἰς τὰς χεῖράς σου. 20 καὶ ἦλθε Δαυὶδ ἐκ τῶν ἐπάνωδιακοπῶν καὶ ἔκοψε τοὺς ἀλλοφύλους ἐκεῖ, καὶ εἶπε Δαυίδ· διέκοψε Κύριος τοὺς ἐχθροὺς ἀλλοφύλους ἐνώπιον ἐμοῦ, ὡς διακόπτεται ὕδατα· διὰ τοῦτο ἐκλήθη τὸ ὄνομα τοῦ τόπου ἐκείνου, ᾿Επάνω διακοπῶν. 21 καὶ καταλιμπάνουσιν ἐκεῖ τοὺς θεοὺς αὐτῶν, καὶ ἐλάβοσαν αὐτοὺς Δαυὶδ καὶ οἱ ἄνδρες οἱ μετ᾿ αὐτοῦ. 22 καὶ προσέθεντο ἔτι ἀλλόφυλοι τοῦ ἀναβῆναι καὶ συνέπεσαν ἐν τῇ κοιλάδι τῶν Τιτάνων. 23 καὶ ἐπηρώτησε Δαυὶδ διὰ Κυρίου καὶ εἶπε Κύριος· οὐκ ἀναβήσῃ εἰς συνάντησιν αὐτῶν, ἀποστρέφου ἀπ᾿ αὐτῶν καὶ παρέσῃ αὐτοῖς πλησίον τοῦ Κλαυθμῶνος· 24 καὶ ἔσται ἐν τῷ ἀκοῦσαί σε τὴν φωνὴν τοῦ συγκλεισμοῦ ἀπὸ τοῦ ἄλσους τοῦ Κλαυθμῶνος, τότε καταβήσῃ πρὸς αὐτούς, ὅτι τότε ἐξελεύσεται Κύριος ἔμπροσθέν σου κόπτειν ἐν τῷ πολέμῳ τῶν ἀλλοφύλων. 25 καὶ ἐποίησε Δαυὶδ καθὼς ἐνετείλατο αὐτῷ Κύριος, καὶ ἐπάταξε τοὺς ἀλλοφύλους ἀπό Γαβαὼν ἕως τῆς γῆς Γαζηρά.
