1 And Saul chooses for himself three thousand men of the men of Israel: 2 and there were with Saul two thousand who were in Machmas, and in mount Baethel, and a thousand were with Jonathan in Gabaa of Benjamin: and he sent the rest of the people every man to his tent. 3 And Jonathan smote Nasib the Philistine that dwelt in the hill; and the Philistines hear of it, and Saul sounds the trumpet through all the land, saying, The servants have despised [us]. 4 And all Israel heard say, Saul has smitten Nasib the Philistine; now Israel had been put to shame before the Philistines; and the children of Israel went up after Saul in Galgala. 5 And the Philistines gather together to war with Israel; and then come up against Israel thirty thousand chariots, and six thousand horsemen, and people as the sand by the seashore for multitude: and they come up, and encamp in Machmas, opposite Baethoron southward. 6 And the men of Israel saw that they were in a strait so that they could not draw nigh, and the people hid themselves in caves, and sheepfolds, and rocks, and ditches, and pits. 7 And they that went over went over Jordan to the land of Gad and Galaad: and Saul was yet in Galgala, and all the people followed after him in amazement. 8 And he continued seven days for the appointed testimony, as Samuel told him, and Samuel came not to Galgala, and his people were dispersed from him. 9 And Saul said, Bring hither [victims], that I may offer whole-burnt-offerings and peace-offerings: and he offered the whole-burnt-offering. 10 And it came to pass when he had finished offering the whole-burnt-offering, that Samuel arrived, and Saul went out to meet him, [and] to bless him. 11 And Samuel said, What hast thou done? and Saul said, Because I saw how the people were scattered from me, and thou was not present as thou purposedst according to the set time of the days, and the Philistines were gathered to Machmas. 12 Then I said, Now will the Philistines come down to me to Galgala, and I have not sought the face of the Lord: so I forced myself and offered the whole-burnt-offering. 13 And Samuel said to Saul, Thou hast done foolishly; for thou hast not kept my command, which the Lord commanded thee, as now the Lord would have confirmed thy kingdom over Israel for ever. 14 But now thy kingdom shall not stand to thee, and the Lord shall seek for himself a man after his own heart; and the Lord shall appoint him to be a ruler over his people, because thou hast not kept all that the Lord commanded thee. 15 And Samuel arose, and departed from Galgala, and the remnant of the people went after Saul to meet [him] after the men of war, when they had come out of Galgala to Gabaa of Benjamin. And Saul numbered the people that were found with him, about six hundred men. 16 And Saul and Jonathan his son, and the people that were found with them, halted in Gabaa, of Benjamin; and they wept: and the Philistines had encamped in Machmas. 17 And men came forth to destroy out of the land of the Philistines in three companies; one company turning by the way of Gophera toward the land of Sogal, 18 and another company turning the way of Baethoron, and another company turning by the way of Gabae that turns aside to Gai of Sabim. 19 And there was not found a smith in all the land of Israel, for the Philistines said, Lest the Hebrews make themselves sword or spear. 20 And all Israel went down to the land of the Philistines to forge every one his reaping-hook and his tool, and every one his axe and his sickle. 21 And it was near the time of vintage: and their tools were [valued at] three shekels for a plough-share, and there was the same rate for the axe and the sickle. 22 And it came to pass in the days of the war of Machmas, that there was not a sword or spear found in the hand of all the people, that were with Saul and Jonathan; but with Saul and Jonathan his son was there found. 23 And there went out some from the camp of the Philistines to the place beyond Machmas. ΚΑΙ ἐκλέγεται ἑαυτῷ Σαοὺλ τρεῖς χιλιάδας ἀνδρῶν ἐκ τῶν ἀνδρῶν ᾿Ισραήλ, καὶ ἦσαν μετὰ Σαοὺλ δισχίλιοι οἱ ἐν Μαχμάς, καὶ ἐν τῷ ὄρει Βαιθήλ, καὶ χίλιοι ἦσαν μετὰ ᾿Ιωνάθαν ἐν Γαβαὰ τοῦ Βενιαμίν, καὶ τὸ κατάλοιπον τοῦ λαοῦ ἐξαπέστειλεν ἕκαστον εἰς τὸ σκήνωμα αὐτοῦ. 3 καὶ ἐπάταξεν ᾿Ιωνάθαν τὸν Νασὶβ τὸν ἀλλόφυλον τὸν ἐν τῷ βουνῷ· καὶ ἀκούουσιν οἱ ἀλλόφυλοι. καὶ Σαοὺλ σάλπιγγι σαλπίζει εἰς πᾶσαν τὴν γῆν λέγων· ἠθετήκασιν οἱ δοῦλοι. 4 καὶ πᾶς ᾿Ισραὴλ ἤκουσε λεγόντων· πέπαικε Σαοὺλ τὸν Νασὶβ τὸν ἀλλόφυλον, καὶ ᾐσχύνθησαν ᾿Ισραὴλ ἐν τοῖς ἀλλοφύλοις. καὶ ἀνέβησαν οἱ υἱοὶ ᾿Ισραὴλ ὀπίσω Σαοὺλ ἐν Γαλγάλοις. 5 καὶ οἱ ἀλλόφυλοι συνάγονται εἰς πόλεμον ἐπὶ ᾿Ισραήλ, καὶ ἀναβαίνουσιν ἐπὶ ᾿Ισραὴλ τριάκοντα χιλιάδες ἁρμάτων καὶ ἓξ χιλιάδες ἱππέων καὶ λαὸς ὡς ἡ ἄμμος ἡ παρὰ τὴν θάλασσαν τῷ πλήθει· καὶ ἀναβαίνουσι καὶ παρεμβάλλουσιν ἐν Μαχμὰς ἐξ ἐναντίας Βαιθωρὼν κατὰ νότου. 6 καὶ ἀνὴρ ᾿Ισραὴλ εἶδεν ὅτι στενῶς αὐτῷ μὴ προσάγειν αὐτόν, καὶ ἐκρύβη ὁ λαὸς ἐν τοῖς σπηλαίοις καὶ ἐν ταῖς μάνδραις καὶ ἐν ταῖς πέτραις καὶ ἐν τοῖς βόθροις καὶ ἐν τοῖς λάκκοις, 7 καὶ οἱ διαβαίνοντες διέβησαν τὸν ᾿Ιορδάνην εἰς γῆν Γὰδ καὶ Γαλαάδ. καὶ Σαοὺλ ἔτι ἦν ἐν Γαλγάλοις, καὶ πᾶς ὁ λαὸς ἐξέστη ὀπίσω αὐτοῦ. 8 καὶ διέλιπεν ἑπτὰ ἡμέρας τῷ μαρτυρίῳ, ὡς εἶπε Σαμουὴλ, καὶ οὐ παρεγένετο Σαμουὴλ εἰς Γάλγαλα, καὶ διεσπάρη ὁ λαὸς αὐτοῦ ἀπ᾿ αὐτοῦ. 9 καὶ εἶπε Σαούλ· προσαγάγετε, ὅπως ποιήσω ὁλοκαύτωσιν καὶ εἰρηνικάς· καὶ ἀνήνεγκε τὴν ὁλοκαύτωσιν. 10 καὶ ἐγένετο ὡς συνετέλεσεν ἀναφέρων τὴν ὁλοκαύτωσιν, καὶ Σαμουὴλ παραγίνεται· καὶ ἐξῆλθε Σαοὺλ εἰς ἀπάντησιν αὐτοῦ εὐλογῆσαι αὐτόν. 11 καὶ εἶπε Σαμουήλ· τί πεποίηκας; καὶ εἶπε Σαούλ· ὅτι εἶδον ὡς διεσπάρη ὁ λαὸς ἀπ᾿ ἐμοῦ καὶ σὺ οὐ παρεγένου ὡς διετάξω ἐν τῷ μαρτυρίῳ τῶν ἡμερῶν, καὶ οἱ ἀλλόφυλοι συνήχθησαν εἰς Μαχμάς, 12 καὶ εἶπα· νῦν καταβήσονται οἱ ἀλλόφυλοι πρός με εἰς Γάλγαλα καὶ τοῦ προσώπου τοῦ Κυρίου οὐκ ἐδεήθην· καὶ ἐνεκρατευσάμην καὶ ἀνήνεγκα τὴν ὁλοκαύτωσιν. 13 καὶ εἶπε Σαμουὴλ πρὸς Σαούλ· μεματαίωταί σοι, ὅτι οὐκ ἐφύλαξας τὴν ἐντολήν μου, ἣν ἐνετείλατό σοι Κύριος, ὡς νῦν ἡτοίμασε Κύριος τὴν βασιλείαν σου ἐπὶ ᾿Ισραὴλ ἕως αἰῶνος· 14 καὶ νῦν ἡ βασιλεία σου οὐ στήσεταί σοι, καὶ ζητήσει Κύριος ἑαυτῷ ἄνθρωπον κατὰ τὴν καρδίαν αὐτοῦ, καὶ ἐντελεῖται Κύριος αὐτῷ εἰς ἄρχοντα ἐπὶ τὸν λαὸν αὐτοῦ, ὅτι οὐκ ἐφύλαξας ὅσα ἐνετείλατό σοι Κύριος. 15 καὶ ἀνέστη Σαμουὴλ καὶ ἀπῆλθεν ἐκ Γαλγάλων εἰς ὁδὸν αὐτοῦ, καὶ τὸ κατάλειμμα τοῦ λαοῦ ἀνέβη ὀπίσω Σαοὺλ εἰς ἀπάντησιν ὀπίσω τοῦ λαοῦ τοῦ πολεμιστοῦ. αὐτῶν παραγενομένων ἐκ Γαλγάλων εἰς Γαβαὰ Βενιαμὶν καὶ ἐπεσκέψατο Σαοὺλ τὸν λαὸν τὸν εὑρεθέντα μετ᾿ αὐτοῦ ὡς ἑξακοσίους ἄνδρας. 16 καὶ Σαοὺλ καὶ ᾿Ιωνάθαν υἱὸς αὐτοῦ καὶ ὁ λαὸς οἱ εὑρεθέντες μετ᾿ αὐτῶν ἐκάθισαν ἐν Γαβαὰ Βενιαμὶν καὶ ἔκλαιον, καὶ οἱ ἀλλόφυλοι παρεμβεβλήκεισαν ἐν Μαχμάς. 17 καὶ ἐξῆλθε διαφθείρων ἐξ ἀγροῦ ἀλλοφύλων τρισὶν ἀρχαῖς· ἡ ἀρχὴ ἡ μία ἐπιβλέπουσα ὁδὸν Γοφερὰ ἐπὶ γῆν Σωγάλ, 18 καὶ ἡ ἀρχὴ ἡ μία ἐπιβλέπουσα ὁδὸν Βαιθωρών, καὶ ἡ ἀρχὴ ἡ μία ἐπιβλέπουσα ὁδὸν Γαβαὲ τὴν εἰσκύπτουσαν ἐπὶ Γαὶ τὴν Σαβίμ. 19 καὶ τέκτων σιδήρου οὐχ εὑρίσκετο ἐν πάσῃ γῇ ᾿Ισραήλ, ὅτι εἶπον οἱ ἀλλόφυλοι· μὴ ποιήσωσιν οἱ ῾Εβραῖοι ῥομφαίαν καὶ δόρυ. 20 καὶ κατέβαινον πᾶς ᾿Ισραὴλ εἰς γῆν ἀλλοφύλων χαλκεύειν ἕκαστος τὸ θέριστρον αὐτοῦ καὶ τὸ σκεῦος αὐτοῦ καὶ ἕκαστος τὴν ἀξίνην αὐτοῦ καὶ τὸ δρέπανον αὐτοῦ. 21 καὶ ἦν ὁ τρυγητὸς ἕτοιμος τοῦ θερίζειν· τὰ δὲ σκεύη ἦν τρεῖς σίκλοι εἰς τὸν ὀδόντα, καὶ τῇ ἀξίνῃ καὶ τῷ δρεπάνῳ ὑπόστασις ἦν ἡ αὐτή. 22 καὶ ἐγενήθη ἐν ταῖς ἡμέραις τοῦ πολέμου Μαχμὰς καὶ οὐχ εὑρέθη ρομφαία καὶ δόρυ ἐν χειρὶ παντὸς τοῦ λαοῦ τοῦ μετὰ Σαοὺλ καὶ μετὰ ᾿Ιωνάθαν, καὶ εὑρέθη τῷ Σαοὺλ καὶ τῷ ᾿Ιωνάθαν υἱῷ αὐτοῦ. 23 καὶ ἐξῆλθεν ἐξ ὑποστάσεως τῶν ἀλλοφύλων τὴν ἐν τῷ πέραν Μαχμάς.
