|1 And Samuel died, and all Israel assembled, and bewailed him, and they bury him in his house in Armathaim: and David arose, and went down to the wilderness of Maon. 2 And there was a man in Maon, and his flocks were in Carmel, and [he was] a very great man; and he had three thousand sheep, and a thousand she-goats: and he happened to be shearing his flock in Carmel. 3 And the man’s name [was] Nabal, and his wife’s name [was] Abigaia: and his wife [was] of good understanding and very beautiful in person: but the man [was] harsh, and evil in his doings, and the man [was] churlish. 4 And David heard in the wilderness, that Nabal the Carmelite was shearing his sheep. 5 And David sent ten young men, and he said to the young men, Go up to Carmel, and go to Nabal, and ask him in my name how he is. 6 And thus shall ye say, May thou and thy house seasonably prosper, and all thine be in prosperity. 7 And now, behold, I have heard that thy shepherds who were with us in the wilderness are shearing thy sheep, and we hindered them not, neither did we demand any thing from them all the time they were in Carmel. 8 Ask thy servants, and they will tell thee. Let then thy servants find grace in thine eyes, for we are come on a good day; give we pray thee, whatsoever thy hand may find, to thy son David. 9 So the servants come and speak these words to Nabal, according to all these words in the name of David. 10 And Nabal sprang up, and answered the servants of David, and said, Who [is] David? and who [is] the son of Jessae? Now-a-days there is abundance of servants who depart every one from his master. 11 And shall I take my bread, and my wine, and my beasts that I have slain for my shearers, and shall I give them to men of whom I know not whence they are? 12 So the servants of David turned back, and returned, and came and reported to David according to these words. 13 And David said to his men, Gird on every man his sword. And they went up after David, about four hundred men: and two hundred abode with the stuff. 14 And one of the servants reported to Abigaia the wife of Nabal, saying, Behold, David sent messengers out of the wilderness to salute our lord; but he turned away from them. 15 And the men were very good to us; they did not hinder us, neither did they demand from us any thing all the days that we were with them. 16 And when we were in the field, they were as a wall round about us, both by night and by day, all the days that we were with them feeding the flock. 17 And now do thou consider, and see what thou wilt do; for mischief is determined against our lord and against his house; and he [is] a vile character, and one cannot speak to him. 18 And Abigaia hasted, and took two hundred loaves, and two vessels of wine, and five sheep ready dressed, and five ephahs of fine flour, and one homer of dried grapes, and two hundred cakes of figs, and put them upon asses. 19 And she said to her servants, Go on before me, and behold I come after you: but she told not her husband. 20 And it came to pass when she had mounted her ass and was going down by the covert of the mountain, behold, David and his men came down to meet her, and she met them. 21 And David said, Perhaps I have kept all his possessions in the wilderness that he should wrong me, and we did not order the taking anything of all his goods; yet he has rewarded me evil for good. 22 So God do to David and more also, if I leave one male of all that belong to Nabal until the morning. 23 And Abigaia saw David, and she hasted and alighted from her ass; and she fell before David on her face, and did obeisance to him, [bowing] to the ground 24 [even] to his feet, and said, On me, my lord, be my wrong: let, I pray thee, thy servant speak in thine ears, and hear thou the words of thy servant. 25 Let not my lord, I pray thee, take to heart this pestilent man, for according to his name, so is he; Nabal [is] his name, and folly [is] with him: but I thy handmaid saw not the servants of my lord whom thou didst send. 26 And now, my lord, [as] the Lord lives, and thy soul lives, as the Lord has kept thee from coming against innocent blood, and from executing vengeance for thyself, now therefore let thine enemies, and those that seek evil against my lord, become as Nabal. 27 And now accept this token of goodwill, which thy servant has brought to my lord, and thou shalt give it to the servants that wait on my lord. 28 Remove, I pray thee, the trespass of thy servant; for the Lord will surely make for my lord a sure house, for the Lord fights the battles of my lord, and there shall no evil be ever found in thee. 29 And [if] a man shall rise up persecuting thee and seeking thy life, yet shall the life of my lord be bound up in the bundle of life with the Lord God, and thou shalt whirl the life of thine enemies [as] in the midst of a sling. 30 And it shall be when the Lord shall have wrought for my lord all the good things he has spoken concerning thee, and shall appoint thee to be ruler over Israel; 31 then this shall not be an abomination and offence to my lord, to have shed innocent blood without cause, and for my lord to have avenged himself: and so may the Lord do good to my lord, and thou shalt remember thine handmaid to do her good. 32 And David said to Abigaia, Blessed [be] the Lord God of Israel, who sent thee this very day to meet me: 33 and blessed [be] thy conduct, and blessed [be] thou, who hast hindered me this very day from coming to shed blood, and from avenging myself. 34 But surely as the Lord God of Israel lives, who hindered me this day from doing thee harm, if thou hadst not hasted and come to meet me, then I said, There shall [surely] not be left to Nabal till the morning one male. 35 And David took of her hand all that she brought to him, and said to her, Go in peace to thy house: see, I have hearkened to thy voice, and accepted thy petition. 36 And Abigaia came to Nabal: and, behold, he had a banquet in this house, as the banquet of a king, and the heart of Nabal [was] merry within him, and he [was] very drunken: and she told him nothing great or small till the morning light. 37 And it came to pass in the morning, when Nabal recovered from his wine, his wife told him these words; and his heart died within him, and he became as a stone. 38 And it came to pass after about ten days, that the Lord smote Nabal, and he died. 39 And David heard it and said, Blessed [be] the Lord, who has judged the cause of my reproach at the hand of Nabal, and has delivered his servant from the power of evil; and the Lord has returned the mischief of Nabal upon his own head. And David sent and spoke concerning Abigaia, to take her to himself for a wife. 40 So the servants of David came to Abigaia to Carmel, and spoke to her, saying, David has sent us to thee, to take thee to himself for a wife. 41 And she arose, and did reverence with her face to the earth, and said, Behold, thy servant [is] for an handmaid to wash the feet of thy servants. 42 And Abigaia arose, and mounted her ass, and five damsels followed her: and she went after the servants of David, and became his wife. 43 And David took Achinaam out of Jezrael, and they were both his wives. 44 And Saul gave Melchol his daughter, David’s wife, to Phalti the son of Amis who was of Romma.||
ΚΑΙ ἀπέθανε Σαμουήλ, καὶ συναθροίζονται πᾶς ᾿Ισραὴλ καὶ κόπτονται αὐτὸν καὶ θάπτουσιν αὐτὸν ἐν οἴκῳ αὐτοῦ ἐν ᾿Αρμαθαίμ. καὶ ἀνέστη Δαυὶδ καὶ κατέβη εἰς τὴν ἔρημον Μαάν. 2 καὶ ἦν ἄνθρωπος ἐν τῇ Μαάν, καὶ τὰ ποίμνια αὐτοῦ ἐν τῷ Καρμήλῳ· καὶ ὁ ἄνθρωπος μέγας σφόδρα, καὶ τούτῳ ποίμνια τρισχίλια καὶ αἶγες χίλιαι· καὶ ἐγενήθη ἐν τῷ κείρειν τὸ ποίμνιον αὐτοῦ ἐν τῷ Καρμήλῳ. 3 καὶ ὄνομα τῷ ἀνθρώπῳ Νάβαλ, καὶ ὄνομα τῇ γυναικὶ αὐτοῦ ᾿Αβιγαία· καὶ ἡ γυνὴ αὐτοῦ ἀγαθὴ συνέσει καὶ καλὴ τῷ εἴδει σφόδρα, καὶ ὁ ἄνθρωπος σκληρὸς καὶ πονηρὸς ἐν ἐπιτηδεύμασι, καὶ ὁ ἄνθρωπος κυνικός. 4 καὶ ἤκουσε Δαυὶδ ἐν τῇ ἐρήμῳ ὅτι κείρει Νάβαλ ὁ Καρμήλιος τὸ ποίμνιον αὐτοῦ, 5 καὶ ἀπέστειλε Δαυὶδ δέκα παιδάρια καὶ εἶπε τοῖς παιδαρίοις· ἀνάβητε εἰς Κάρμηλον καὶ ἀπέλθατε πρὸς Νάβαλ καὶ ἐρωτήσατε αὐτὸν ἐπὶ τῷ ὀνόματί μου εἰς εἰρήνην 6 καὶ ἐρεῖτε τάδε· εἰς ὥρας· καὶ σὺ ὑγιαίνων, καὶ ὁ οἶκός σου, καὶ πάντα τὰ σὰ ὑγιαίνοντα. 7 καὶ νῦν ἰδοὺ ἀκήκοα ὅτι κείρουσί σοι νῦν οἱ ποιμένες σου, οἳ ἦσαν μεθ᾿ ἡμῶν ἐν τῇ ἐρήμῳ, καὶ οὐκ ἀπεκωλύσαμεν αὐτοὺς καὶ οὐκ ἐνετειλάμεθα αὐτοῖς οὐθὲν πάσας τὰς ἡμέρας ὄντων αὐτῶν ἐν Καρμήλῳ· 8 ἐρώτησον τὰ παιδάριά σου καὶ ἀπαγγελοῦσί σοι. καὶ εὑρέτωσαν τὰ παιδάρια χάριν ἐν ὀφθαλμοῖς σου, ὅτι ἐφ᾿ ἡμέραν ἀγαθὴν ἥκομεν· δὸς δὴ ὃ ἐὰν εὕρῃ ἡ χείρ σου τῷ υἱῷ σου τῷ Δαυίδ. 9 καὶ ἔρχονται τὰ παιδάρια καὶ λαλοῦσι τοὺς λόγους τούτους πρὸς Νάβαλ κατὰ πάντα τὰ ῥήματα ταῦτα ἐν τῷ ὀνόματι Δαυίδ. καὶ ἀνεπήδησε 10 καὶ ἀπεκρίθη Νάβαλ τοῖς παισὶ Δαυὶδ καὶ εἶπε· τίς ὁ Δαυὶδ καὶ τίς ὁ υἱὸς ᾿Ιεσσαί; σήμερον πεπληθυμμένοι εἰσὶν οἱ δοῦλοι ἀναχωροῦντες ἕκαστος ἐκ προσώπου τοῦ κυρίου αὐτοῦ. 11 καὶ λήψομαι τοὺς ἄρτους μου καὶ τὸν οἶνόν μου καὶ τὰ θύματά μου, ἃ τέθυκα τοῖς κείρουσί μου τὰ πρόβατα, καὶ δώσω αὐτὰ ἀνδράσιν, οἷς οὐκ οἶδα πόθεν εἰσί; 12 καὶ ἀπεστράφησαν τὰ παιδάρια Δαυὶδ εἰς ὁδὸν αὐτῶν καὶ ἀνέστρεψαν καὶ ἦλθον καὶ ἀνήγγειλαν τῷ Δαυὶδ κατὰ τὰ ρήματα ταῦτα. 13 καὶ εἶπε Δαυὶδ τοῖς ἀνδράσιν αὐτοῦ· ζώσασθε ἕκαστος τὴν ρομφαίαν αὐτοῦ· καὶ ἀνέβησαν ὀπίσω Δαυὶδ ὡς τετρακόσιοι ἄνδρες, καὶ οἱ διακόσιοι ἐκάθισαν μετὰ τῶν σκευῶν. 14 καὶ τῇ ᾿Αβιγαίᾳ γυναικὶ Νάβαλ ἀπήγγειλεν ἓν τῶν παιδαρίων λέγων· ἰδοὺ Δαυὶδ ἀπέστειλεν ἀγγέλους ἐκ τῆς ἐρήμου εὐλογῆσαι τὸν κύριον ἡμῶν, καὶ ἐξέκλινεν ἀπ᾿ αὐτῶν. 15 καὶ οἱ ἄνδρες ἀγαθοὶ ἡμῖν σφόδρα· οὐκ ἀπεκώλυσαν ἡμᾶς οὐδὲ ἐνετείλαντο ἡμῖν οὐδὲν πάσας τὰς ἡμέρας, ἃς ἦμεν παρ᾿ αὐτοῖς· 16 καὶ ἐν τῷ εἶναι ἡμᾶς ἐν ἀγρῷ ὡς τεῖχος ἦσαν περὶ ἡμᾶς καὶ τὴν νύκτα καὶ τὴν ἡμέραν πάσας τὰς ἡμέρας, ἃς ἤμεθα παρ᾿ αὐτοῖς ποιμαίνοντες τὸ ποίμνιον. 17 καὶ νῦν γνῶθι καὶ ἰδὲ σὺ τί ποιήσεις, ὅτι συντετέλεσται ἡ κακία εἰς τὸν κύριον ἡμῶν καὶ εἰς τὸν οἶκον αὐτοῦ· καὶ οὗτος υἱὸς λοιμός, καὶ οὐκ ἔστι λαλῆσαι πρὸς αὐτόν. 18 καὶ ἔσπευσεν ᾿Αβιγαία καὶ ἔλαβε διακοσίους ἄρτους καὶ δύο ἀγγεῖα οἴνου καὶ πέντε πρόβατα πεποιημένα καὶ πέντε οἰφὶ ἀλφίτου καὶ γόμορ ἓν σταφίδος καὶ διακοσίας παλάθας καὶ ἔθετο ἐπὶ τοὺς ὄνους 19 καὶ εἶπε τοῖς παιδαρίοις αὐτῆς· προπορεύεσθε ἔμπροσθέν μου, καὶ ἰδοὺ ἐγὼ ὀπίσω ὑμῶν παραγίνομαι. καὶ τῷ ἀνδρὶ αὐτῆς οὐκ ἀπήγγειλε. 20 καὶ ἐγενήθη αὐτῆς ἐπιβεβηκυίης ἐπὶ τὴν ὄνον καὶ καταβαινούσης ἐν σκέπῃ τοῦ ὄρους καὶ ἰδοὺ Δαυὶδ καὶ οἱ ἄνδρες αὐτοῦ κατέβαινον εἰς συνάντησιν αὐτῆς, καὶ ἀπήντησεν αὐτοῖς· 21 καὶ Δαυὶδ εἶπεν· ἴσως εἰς ἄδικον πεφύλακα πάντα τὰ αὐτοῦ ἐν τῇ ἐρήμῳ καὶ οὐκ ἐνετειλάμεθα λαβεῖν ἐκ πάντων τῶν αὐτοῦ οὐθέν, καὶ ἀνταπέδωκέ μοι πονηρὰ ἀντὶ ἀγαθῶν· 22 τάδε ποιήσαι ὁ Θεὸς τῷ Δαυὶδ καὶ τάδε προσθείη, εἰ ὑπολείψομαι ἐκ πάντων τῶν τοῦ Νάβαλ ἕως πρωΐ οὐροῦντα πρὸς τοῖχον. 23 καὶ εἶδεν ᾿Αβιγαία τὸν Δαυὶδ καὶ ἔσπευσε καὶ κατεπήδησεν ἀπὸ τῆς ὄνου καὶ ἔπεσεν ἐνώπιον Δαυὶδ ἐπὶ πρόσωπον αὐτῆς καὶ προσεκύνησεν αὐτῷ ἐπὶ τὴν γῆν 24 ἐπὶ τοὺς πόδας αὐτοῦ καὶ εἶπεν· ἐν ἐμοὶ κύριέ μου ἡ ἀδικία· λαλησάτω δὴ ἡ δούλη σου εἰς τὰ ὦτά σου, καὶ ἄκουσον λόγων τῆς δούλης σου. 25 μὴ δὴ θέσθω ὁ κύριός μου καρδίαν αὐτοῦ ἐπὶ τὸν ἄνθρωπον τὸν λοιμὸν τοῦτον, ὅτι κατὰ τὸ ὄνομα αὐτοῦ οὗτός ἐστι· Νάβαλ ὄνομα αὐτῷ, καὶ ἀφροσύνη μετ᾿ αὐτοῦ· καὶ ἐγὼ ἡ δούλη σου οὐκ εἶδον τὰ παιδάρια τοῦ κυρίου μου, ἃ ἀπέστειλας. 26 καὶ νῦν, κύριέ μου, ζῇ Κύριος καὶ ζῇ ἡ ψυχή σου,καθὼς ἐκώλυσέ σε Κύριος τοῦ μὴ ἐλθεῖν εἰς αἷμα ἀθῷον καὶ σώζειν τὴν χεῖρά σού σοι, καὶ νῦν γένοιντο ὡς Νάβαλ οἱ ἐχθροί σου καὶ οἱ ζητοῦντες τῷ κυρίῳ μου κακά. 27 καὶ νῦν λαβὲ τὴν εὐλογίαν ταύτην, ἣν ἐνήνοχεν ἡ δούλη σου τῷ κυρίῳ μου, καὶ δώσεις τοῖς παιδαρίοις τοῖς παρεστηκόσι τῷ κυρίῳ μου. 28 ἆρον δὴ τὸ ἀνόμημα τῆς δούλης σου, ὅτι ποιῶν ποιήσει Κύριος τῷ κυρίῳ μου οἶκον πιστόν, ὅτι πόλεμον κυρίου μου ὁ Κύριος πολεμεῖ, καὶ κακία οὐχ εὑρεθήσεται ἐν σοὶ πώποτε. 29 καὶ ἀναστήσεται ἄνθρωπος καταδιώκων σε καὶ ζητῶν τὴν ψυχήν σου, καὶ ἔσται ψυχὴ κυρίου μου ἐνδεδεμένη ἐν δεσμῷ τῆς ζωῆς παρὰ Κυρίῳ τῷ Θεῷ, καὶ ψυχὴν ἐχθρῶν σου σφενδονήσεις ἐν μέσῳ τῆς σφενδόνης. 30 καὶ ἔσται ὅτι ποιήσῃ Κύριος τῷ κυρίῳ μου πάντα, ὅσα ἐλάλησεν ἀγαθὰ ἐπὶ σέ, καὶ ἐντελεῖταί σοι εἰς ἡγούμενον ἐπὶ ᾿Ισραήλ, 31 καὶ οὐκ ἔσται σοι τοῦτο βδελυγμὸς καὶ σκάνδαλον τῷ κυρίῳ μου, ἐκχέαι αἷμα ἀθῷον δωρεὰν καὶ σῶσαι χεῖρα κυρίῳ μου αὐτῷ, καὶ ἀγαθώσει Κύριος τῷ κυρίῳ μου, καὶ μνησθήσῃ τῆς δούλης σου ἀγαθῶσαι αὐτῇ. 32 καὶ εἶπε Δαυὶδ τῇ ᾿Αβιγαίᾳ· εὐλογητὸς Κύριος ὁ Θεὸς ᾿Ισραήλ, ὃς ἀπέστειλέ σε σήμερον ἐν ταύτῃ εἰς ἀπάντησίν μοι. 33 καὶ εὐλογητὸς ὁ τρόπος σου, καὶ εὐλογημένη σὺ ἡ ἀποκωλύσασά με σήμερον ἐν ταύτῃ μὴ ἐλθεῖν εἰς αἵματα καὶ σῶσαι χεῖρά μου ἐμοί. 34 πλὴν ὅτι ζῇ Κύριος ὁ Θεὸς ᾿Ισραήλ, ὃς ἀπεκώλυσέ με σήμερον τοῦ κακοποιῆσαί σε, ὅτι εἰ μὴ ἔσπευσας καὶ παρεγένου εἰς ἀπάντησίν μοι, τότε εἶπα· εἰ ὑπολειφθήσεται τῷ Νάβαλ ἕως φωτὸς τοῦ πρωΐ οὐρῶν πρὸς τοῖχον. 35 καὶ ἔλαβε Δαυὶδ ἐκ χειρὸς αὐτῆς πάντα, ἃ ἔφερεν αὐτῷ, καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῇ· ἀνάβηθι εἰς εἰρήνην εἰς οἶκόν σου· βλέπε, ἤκουσα τῆς φωνῆς σου καὶ ἠρέτισα τὸ πρόσωπόν σου. 36 καὶ παρεγενήθη ᾿Αβιγαία πρὸς Νάβαλ, καὶ ἰδοὺ αὐτῷ πότος ἐν οἴκῳ αὐτοῦ ὡς πότος βασιλέως, καὶ ἡ καρδία Νάβαλ ἀγαθὴ ἐπ᾿ αὐτόν, καὶ αὐτὸς μεθύων ἕως σφόδρα· καὶ οὐκ ἀπήγγειλεν αὐτῷ ρῆμα μικρὸν ἢ μέγα ἕως φωτὸς τοῦ πρωΐ. 37 καὶ ἐγένετο πρωΐ, ὡς ἐξένηψεν ἀπὸ τοῦ οἴνου Νάβαλ, ἀπήγγειλεν ἡ γυνὴ αὐτοῦ τὰ ρήματα ταῦτα, καὶ ἐναπέθανεν ἡ καρδία αὐτοῦ ἐν αὐτῷ, καὶ αὐτὸς γίνεται ὡς λίθος. 38 καὶ ἐγένετο ὡσεὶ δέκα ἡμέραι καὶ ἐπάταξε Κύριος τὸν Νάβαλ, καὶ ἀπέθανε. 39 καὶ ἤκουσε Δαυὶδ καὶ εἶπεν· εὐλογητὸς Κύριος, ὃς ἔκρινε τὴν κρίσιν τοῦ ὀνειδισμοῦ μου ἐκ χειρὸς Νάβαλ, καὶ τὸν δοῦλον αὐτοῦ περιεποιήσατο ἐκ χειρὸς κακῶν, καὶ τὴν κακίαν Νάβαλ ἀπέστρεψε Κύριος εἰς κεφαλὴν αὐτοῦ. καὶ ἀπέστειλε Δαυὶδ καὶ ἐλάλησε περὶ ᾿Αβιγαίας, λαβεῖν αὐτὴν ἑαυτῷ εἰς γυναῖκα. 40 καὶ ἦλθον οἱ παῖδες Δαυὶδ πρὸς ᾿Αβιγαίαν εἰς Κάρμηλον καὶ ἐλάλησαν αὐτῇ λέγοντες· Δαυὶδ ἀπέστειλεν ἡμᾶς πρός σε λαβεῖν σε αὐτῷ εἰς γυναῖκα. 41 καὶ ἀνέστη καὶ προσεκύνησεν ἐπὶ τὴν γῆν ἐπὶ πρόσωπον καὶ εἶπεν· ἰδοὺ ἡ δούλη σου εἰς παιδίσκην νίψαι πόδας τῶν παίδων σου. 42 καὶ ἀνέστη ᾿Αβιγαία καὶ ἐπέβη ἐπί τὴν ὄνον καὶ πέντε κοράσια ἠκολούθουν αὐτῇ, καὶ ἐπορεύθη ὀπίσω τῶν παίδων Δαυίδ, καὶ γίνεται αὐτῷ εἰς γυναῖκα. 43 καὶ τὴν ᾿Αχινόομ ἔλαβε Δαυὶδ ἐξ ᾿Ιεζραέλ, καὶ ἀμφότεραι ἦσαν αὐτῷ γυναῖκες. 44 καὶ Σαοὺλ ἔδωκε Μελχὸλ τὴν θυγατέρα αὐτοῦ τὴν γυναῖκα Δαυὶδ τῷ Φαλτὶ υἱῷ ᾿Αμὶς τῷ ἐκ Ῥομμά.
