2 Samuel 19 Text (WEB)
  1. It was told Joab, "Behold, the king weeps and mourns for Absalom."
  2. The victory that day was turned into mourning to all the people; for the people heard it said that day, "The king grieves for his son."
  3. The people snuck into the city that day, as people who are ashamed steal away when they flee in battle.
  4. The king covered his face, and the king cried with a loud voice, "My son Absalom, Absalom, my son, my son!"
  5. Joab came into the house to the king, and said, "You have shamed this day the faces of all your servants, who this day have saved your life, and the lives of your sons and of your daughters, and the lives of your wives, and the lives of your concubines;
  6. in that you love those who hate you, and hate those who love you. For you have declared this day, that princes and servants are nothing to you. For today I perceive that if Absalom had lived, and all we had died this day, then it would have pleased you well.
  7. Now therefore arise, go out, and speak to comfort your servants; for I swear by Yahweh, if you don't go out, not a man will stay with you this night. That would be worse to you than all the evil that has happened to you from your youth until now."
  8. Then the king arose, and sat in the gate. They told to all the people, saying, "Behold, the king is sitting in the gate." All the people came before the king. Now Israel had fled every man to his tent.
  9. All the people were at strife throughout all the tribes of Israel, saying, "The king delivered us out of the hand of our enemies, and he saved us out of the hand of the Philistines; and now he has fled out of the land from Absalom.
  10. Absalom, whom we anointed over us, is dead in battle. Now therefore why don't you speak a word of bringing the king back?"
  11. King David sent to Zadok and to Abiathar the priests, saying, "Speak to the elders of Judah, saying, 'Why are you the last to bring the king back to his house? Since the speech of all Israel has come to the king, to return him to his house.
  12. You are my brothers, you are my bone and my flesh. Why then are you the last to bring back the king?'
  13. Say to Amasa, 'Aren't you my bone and my flesh? God do so to me, and more also, if you aren't captain of the army before me continually in the room of Joab.'"
  14. He bowed the heart of all the men of Judah, even as [the heart of] one man; so that they sent to the king, saying, "Return, you and all your servants."
  15. So the king returned, and came to the Jordan. Judah came to Gilgal, to go to meet the king, to bring the king over the Jordan.
  16. Shimei the son of Gera, the Benjamite, who was of Bahurim, hurried and came down with the men of Judah to meet king David.
  17. There were a thousand men of Benjamin with him, and Ziba the servant of the house of Saul, and his fifteen sons and his twenty servants with him; and they went through the Jordan in the presence of the king.
  18. A ferry boat went to bring over the king's household, and to do what he thought good. Shimei the son of Gera fell down before the king, when he was come over the Jordan.
  19. He said to the king, "Don't let my lord impute iniquity to me, neither do you remember that which your servant did perversely the day that my lord the king went out of Jerusalem, that the king should take it to his heart.
  20. For your servant knows that I have sinned. Therefore, behold, I have come this day the first of all the house of Joseph to go down to meet my lord the king."
  21. But Abishai the son of Zeruiah answered, "Shall Shimei not be put to death for this, because he cursed Yahweh's anointed?"
  22. David said, "What have I to do with you, you sons of Zeruiah, that you should this day be adversaries to me? Shall there any man be put to death this day in Israel? For don't I know that I am this day king over Israel?"
  23. The king said to Shimei, "You shall not die." The king swore to him.
  24. Mephibosheth the son of Saul came down to meet the king; and he had neither groomed his feet, nor trimmed his beard, nor washed his clothes, from the day the king departed until the day he came home in peace.
  25. It happened, when he had come to Jerusalem to meet the king, that the king said to him, "Why didn't you go with me, Mephibosheth?"
  26. He answered, "My lord, O king, my servant deceived me. For your servant said, I will saddle me a donkey, that I may ride thereon, and go with the king; because your servant is lame.
  27. He has slandered your servant to my lord the king; but my lord the king is as an angel of God. Do therefore what is good in your eyes.
  28. For all my father's house were but dead men before my lord the king; yet you set your servant among those who ate at your own table. What right therefore have I yet that I should cry any more to the king?"
  29. The king said to him, "Why do you speak any more of your matters? I say, you and Ziba divide the land."
  30. Mephibosheth said to the king, "Yes, let him take all, because my lord the king has come in peace to his own house."
  31. Barzillai the Gileadite came down from Rogelim; and he went over the Jordan with the king, to conduct him over the Jordan.
  32. Now Barzillai was a very aged man, even eighty years old: and he had provided the king with sustenance while he lay at Mahanaim; for he was a very great man.
  33. The king said to Barzillai, "Come over with me, and I will sustain you with me in Jerusalem."
  34. Barzillai said to the king, "How many are the days of the years of my life, that I should go up with the king to Jerusalem?
  35. I am this day eighty years old. Can I discern between good and bad? Can your servant taste what I eat or what I drink? Can I hear any more the voice of singing men and singing women? Why then should your servant be yet a burden to my lord the king?
  36. Your servant would but just go over the Jordan with the king. Why should the king repay me with such a reward?
  37. Please let your servant turn back again, that I may die in my own city, by the grave of my father and my mother. But behold, your servant Chimham; let him go over with my lord the king; and do to him what shall seem good to you."
  38. The king answered, "Chimham shall go over with me, and I will do to him that which shall seem good to you. Whatever you require of me, that I will do for you."
  39. All the people went over the Jordan, and the king went over. Then the king kissed Barzillai, and blessed him; and he returned to his own place.
  40. So the king went over to Gilgal, and Chimham went over with him. All the people of Judah brought the king over, and also half the people of Israel.
  41. Behold, all the men of Israel came to the king, and said to the king, "Why have our brothers the men of Judah stolen you away, and brought the king, and his household, over the Jordan, and all David's men with him?"
  42. All the men of Judah answered the men of Israel, "Because the king is a close relative to us. Why then are you angry about this matter? Have we eaten at all at the king's cost? Or has he given us any gift?"
  43. The men of Israel answered the men of Judah, and said, "We have ten parts in the king, and we have also more claim to David than you. Why then did you despise us, that our advice should not be first had in bringing back our king?" The words of the men of Judah were fiercer than the words of the men of Israel.
2 Samuel 19 Text (Hebrew)
  1. ויגד ליואב הנה המלך בכה ויתאבל על־אבשלם׃
  2. ותהי התשעה ביום ההוא לאבל לכל־העם כי־שמע העם ביום ההוא לאמר נעצב המלך על־בנו׃
  3. ויתגנב העם ביום ההוא לבוא העיר כאשר יתגנב העם הנכלמים בנוסם במלחמה׃
  4. והמלך לאט את־פניו ויזעק המלך קול גדול בני אבשלום אבשלום בני בני׃ ס
  5. ויבא יואב אל־המלך הבית ויאמר הבשת היום את־פני כל־עבדיך הממלטים את־נפשך היום ואת נפש בניך ובנתיך ונפש נשיך ונפש פלגשיך׃
  6. לאהבה את־שנאיך ולשנא את־אהביך כי הגדת היום כי אין לך שרים ועבדים כי ידעתי היום כי אבשלום חי וכלנו היום מתים כי־אז ישר בעיניך׃
  7. ועתה קום צא ודבר על־לב עבדיך כי ביהוה נשבעתי כי־אינך יוצא אם־ילין איש אתך הלילה ורעה לך זאת מכל־הרעה אשר־באה עליך מנעריך עד־עתה׃ ס
  8. ויקם המלך וישב בשער ולכל־העם הגידו לאמר הנה המלך יושב בשער ויבא כל־העם לפני המלך וישראל נס איש לאהליו׃ ס
  9. ויהי כל־העם נדון בכל־שבטי ישראל לאמר המלך הצילנו מכף איבינו והוא מלטנו מכף פלשתים ועתה ברח מן־הארץ מעל אבשלום׃
  10. ואבשלום אשר משחנו עלינו מת במלחמה ועתה למה אתם מחרשים להשיב את־המלך׃ ס
  11. והמלך דוד שלח אל־צדוק ואל־אביתר הכהנים לאמר דברו אל־זקני יהודה לאמר למה תהיו אחרנים להשיב את־המלך אל־ביתו ודבר כל־ישראל בא אל־המלך אל־ביתו׃
  12. אחי אתם עצמי ובשרי אתם ולמה תהיו אחרנים להשיב את־המלך׃
  13. ולעמשא תמרו הלוא עצמי ובשרי אתה כה יעשה־לי אלהים וכה יוסיף אם־לא שר־צבא תהיה לפני כל־הימים תחת יואב׃
  14. ויט את־לבב כל־איש־יהודה כאיש אחד וישלחו אל־המלך שוב אתה וכל־עבדיך׃
  15. וישב המלך ויבא עד־הירדן ויהודה בא הגלגלה ללכת לקראת המלך להעביר את־המלך את־הירדן׃
  16. וימהר שמעי בן־גרא בן־הימיני אשר מבחורים וירד עם־איש יהודה לקראת המלך דוד׃
  17. ואלף איש עמו מבנימן וציבא נער בית שאול וחמשת עשר בניו ועשרים עבדיו אתו וצלחו הירדן לפני המלך׃
  18. ועברה העברה לעביר את־בית המלך ולעשות הטוב ושמעי בן־גרא נפל לפני המלך בעברו בירדן׃
  19. ויאמר אל־המלך אל־יחשב־לי אדני עון ואל־תזכר את אשר העוה עבדך ביום אשר־יצא אדני־המלך מירושלם לשום המלך אל־לבו׃
  20. כי ידע עבדך כי אני חטאתי והנה־באתי היום ראשון לכל־בית יוסף לרדת לקראת אדני המלך׃ ס
  21. ויען אבישי בן־צרויה ויאמר התחת זאת לא יומת שמעי כי קלל את־משיח יהוה׃ ס
  22. ויאמר דוד מה־לי ולכם בני צרויה כי־תהיו־לי היום לשטן היום יומת איש בישראל כי הלוא ידעתי כי היום אני־מלך על־ישראל׃
  23. ויאמר המלך אל־שמעי לא תמות וישבע לו המלך׃ ס
  24. ומפבשת בן־שאול ירד לקראת המלך ולא־עשה רגליו ולא־עשה שפמו ואת־בגדיו לא כבס למן־היום לכת המלך עד־היום אשר־בא בשלום׃
  25. ויהי כי־בא ירושלם לקראת המלך ויאמר לו המלך למה לא־הלכת עמי מפיבשת׃
  26. ויאמר אדני המלך עבדי רמני כי־אמר עבדך אחבשה־לי החמור וארכב עליה ואלך את־המלך כי פסח עבדך׃
  27. וירגל בעבדך אל־אדני המלך ואדני המלך כמלאך האלהים ועשה הטוב בעיניך׃
  28. כי לא היה כל־בית אבי כי אם־אנשי־מות לאדני המלך ותשת את־עבדך באכלי שלחנך ומה־יש־לי עוד צדקה ולזעק עוד אל־המלך׃ ף
  29. ויאמר לו המלך למה תדבר עוד דבריך אמרתי אתה וציבא תחלקו את־השדה׃
  30. ויאמר מפיבשת אל־המלך גם את־הכל יקח אחרי אשר־בא אדני המלך בשלום אל־ביתו׃ ס
  31. וברזלי הגלעדי ירד מרגלים ויעבר את־המלך הירדן לשלחו את־ ׃
  32. וברזלי זקן מאד בן־שמנים שנה והוא־כלכל את־המלך בשיבתו במחנים כי־איש גדול הוא מאד׃
  33. ויאמר המלך אל־ברזלי אתה עבר אתי וכלכלתי אתך עמדי בירושלם׃
  34. ויאמר ברזלי אל־המלך כמה ימי שני חיי כי־אעלה את־המלך ירושלם׃
  35. בן־שמנים שנה אנכי היום האדע בין־טוב לרע אם־יטעם עבדך את־אשר אכל ואת־אשר אשתה אם־אשמע עוד בקול שרים ושרות ולמה יהיה עבדך עוד למשא אל־אדני המלך׃
  36. כמעט יעבר עבדך את־הירדן את־המלך ולמה יגמלני המלך הגמולה הזאת׃
  37. ישב־נא עבדך ואמת בעירי עם קבר אבי ואמי והנה עבדך כמהם יעבר עם־אדני המלך ועשה־לו את אשר־טוב בעיניך׃ ס
  38. ויאמר המלך אתי יעבר כמהם ואני אעשה־לו את־הטוב בעיניך וכל אשר־תבחר עלי אעשה־לך׃
  39. ויעבר כל־העם את־הירדן והמלך עבר וישק המלך לברזלי ויברכהו וישב למקמו׃ ס
  40. ויעבר המלך הגלגלה וכמהן עבר עמו וכל־עם יהודה את־המלך וגם חצי עם ישראל׃
  41. והנה כל־איש ישראל באים אל־המלך ויאמרו אל־המלך מדוע גנבוך אחינו איש יהודה ויעברו את־המלך ואת־ביתו את־הירדן וכל־אנשי דוד עמו׃ ס
  42. ויען כל־איש יהודה על־איש ישראל כי־קרוב המלך אלי ולמה זה חרה לך על־הדבר הזה האכול אכלנו מן־המלך אם־נשאת נשא לנו׃ ס
  43. ויען איש־ישראל את־איש יהודה ויאמר עשר־ידות לי במלך וגם־בדוד אני ממך ומדוע הקלתני ולא־היה דברי ראשון לי להשיב את־מלכי ויקש דבר־איש יהודה מדבר איש ישראל׃ ס

  1. και ανηγγελη τω ιωαβ λεγοντες ιδου ο βασιλευς κλαιει και πενθει επι
  2. και εγενετο η σωτηρια εν τη ημερα εκεινη εις πενθος παντι τω λαω οτι ηκουσεν ο λαος εν τη ημερα εκεινη λεγων οτι λυπειται ο βασιλευς επι τω υιω
  3. και διεκλεπτετο ο λαος εν τη ημερα εκεινη του εισελθειν εις την πολιν καθως διακλεπτεται ο λαος οι αισχυνομενοι εν τω αυτους φευγειν εν τω
  4. και ο βασιλευς εκρυψεν το προσωπον αυτου και εκραξεν ο βασιλευς φωνη μεγαλη λεγων υιε μου αβεσσαλωμ αβεσσαλωμ υιε
  5. και εισηλθεν ιωαβ προς τον βασιλεα εις τον οικον και ειπεν κατησχυνας σημερον το προσωπον παντων των δουλων σου των εξαιρουμενων σε σημερον και την ψυχην των υιων σου και των θυγατερων σου και την ψυχην των γυναικων σου και των παλλακων
  6. του αγαπαν τους μισουντας σε και μισειν τους αγαπωντας σε και ανηγγειλας σημερον οτι ουκ εισιν οι αρχοντες σου ουδε παιδες οτι εγνωκα σημερον οτι ει αβεσσαλωμ εζη παντες ημεις σημερον νεκροι οτι τοτε το ευθες ην εν οφθαλμοις
  7. και νυν αναστας εξελθε και λαλησον εις την καρδιαν των δουλων σου οτι εν κυριω ωμοσα οτι ει μη εκπορευση σημερον ει αυλισθησεται ανηρ μετα σου την νυκτα ταυτην και επιγνωθι σεαυτω και κακον σοι τουτο υπερ παν το κακον το επελθον σοι εκ νεοτητος σου εως του
  8. και ανεστη ο βασιλευς και εκαθισεν εν τη πυλη και πας ο λαος ανηγγειλαν λεγοντες ιδου ο βασιλευς καθηται εν τη πυλη και εισηλθεν πας ο λαος κατα προσωπον του βασιλεως και ισραηλ εφυγεν ανηρ εις τα σκηνωματα
  9. και ην πας ο λαος κρινομενος εν πασαις φυλαις ισραηλ λεγοντες ο βασιλευς δαυιδ ερρυσατο ημας απο παντων των εχθρων ημων και αυτος εξειλατο ημας εκ χειρος αλλοφυλων και νυν πεφευγεν απο της γης και απο της βασιλειας αυτου απο
  10. και αβεσσαλωμ ον εχρισαμεν εφ' ημων απεθανεν εν τω πολεμω και νυν ινα τι υμεις κωφευετε του επιστρεψαι τον βασιλεα και το ρημα παντος ισραηλ ηλθεν προς τον
  11. και ο βασιλευς δαυιδ απεστειλεν προς σαδωκ και προς αβιαθαρ τους ιερεις λεγων λαλησατε προς τους πρεσβυτερους ιουδα λεγοντες ινα τι γινεσθε εσχατοι του επιστρεψαι τον βασιλεα εις τον οικον αυτου και λογος παντος ισραηλ ηλθεν προς τον
  12. αδελφοι μου υμεις οστα μου και σαρκες μου υμεις και ινα τι γινεσθε εσχατοι του επιστρεψαι τον βασιλεα εις τον οικον
  13. και τω αμεσσαι ερειτε ουχι οστουν μου και σαρξ μου συ και νυν ταδε ποιησαι μοι ο θεος και ταδε προσθειη ει μη αρχων δυναμεως εση ενωπιον εμου πασας τας ημερας αντι
  14. και εκλινεν την καρδιαν παντος ανδρος ιουδα ως ανδρος ενος και απεστειλαν προς τον βασιλεα λεγοντες επιστραφητι συ και παντες οι δουλοι
  15. και επεστρεψεν ο βασιλευς και ηλθεν εως του ιορδανου και ανδρες ιουδα ηλθαν εις γαλγαλα του πορευεσθαι εις απαντην του βασιλεως διαβιβασαι τον βασιλεα τον
  16. και εταχυνεν σεμει υιος γηρα υιου του ιεμενι εκ βαουριμ και κατεβη μετα ανδρος ιουδα εις απαντην του βασιλεως
  17. και χιλιοι ανδρες μετ' αυτου εκ του βενιαμιν και σιβα το παιδαριον του οικου σαουλ και δεκα πεντε υιοι αυτου μετ' αυτου και εικοσι δουλοι αυτου μετ' αυτου και κατευθυναν τον ιορδανην εμπροσθεν του
  18. και ελειτουργησαν την λειτουργιαν του διαβιβασαι τον βασιλεα και διεβη η διαβασις εξεγειραι τον οικον του βασιλεως και του ποιησαι το ευθες εν οφθαλμοις αυτου και σεμει υιος γηρα επεσεν επι προσωπον αυτου ενωπιον του βασιλεως διαβαινοντος αυτου τον
  19. και ειπεν προς τον βασιλεα μη διαλογισασθω ο κυριος μου ανομιαν και μη μνησθης οσα ηδικησεν ο παις σου εν τη ημερα η ο κυριος μου ο βασιλευς εξεπορευετο εξ ιερουσαλημ του θεσθαι τον βασιλεα εις την καρδιαν
  20. οτι εγνω ο δουλος σου οτι εγω ημαρτον και ιδου εγω ηλθον σημερον προτερος παντος οικου ιωσηφ του καταβηναι εις απαντην του κυριου μου του
  21. και απεκριθη αβεσσα υιος σαρουιας και ειπεν μη αντι τουτου ου θανατωθησεται σεμει οτι κατηρασατο τον χριστον
  22. και ειπεν δαυιδ τι εμοι και υμιν υιοι σαρουιας οτι γινεσθε μοι σημερον εις επιβουλον σημερον ου θανατωθησεται τις ανηρ εξ ισραηλ οτι ουκ οιδα ει σημερον βασιλευω εγω επι τον
  23. και ειπεν ο βασιλευς προς σεμει ου μη αποθανης και ωμοσεν αυτω ο
  24. και μεμφιβοσθε υιος ιωναθαν υιου σαουλ κατεβη εις απαντην του βασιλεως και ουκ εθεραπευσεν τους ποδας αυτου ουδε ωνυχισατο ουδε εποιησεν τον μυστακα αυτου και τα ιματια αυτου ουκ επλυνεν απο της ημερας ης απηλθεν ο βασιλευς εως της ημερας ης αυτος παρεγενετο εν
  25. και εγενετο οτε εισηλθεν εις ιερουσαλημ εις απαντησιν του βασιλεως και ειπεν αυτω ο βασιλευς τι οτι ουκ επορευθης μετ' εμου
  26. και ειπεν προς αυτον μεμφιβοσθε κυριε μου βασιλευ ο δουλος μου παρελογισατο με οτι ειπεν ο παις σου αυτω επισαξον μοι την ονον και επιβω επ' αυτην και πορευσομαι μετα του βασιλεως οτι χωλος ο δουλος
  27. και μεθωδευσεν εν τω δουλω σου προς τον κυριον μου τον βασιλεα και ο κυριος μου ο βασιλευς ως αγγελος του θεου και ποιησον το αγαθον εν οφθαλμοις
  28. οτι ουκ ην πας ο οικος του πατρος μου αλλ' η οτι ανδρες θανατου τω κυριω μου τω βασιλει και εθηκας τον δουλον σου εν τοις εσθιουσιν την τραπεζαν σου και τι εστιν μοι ετι δικαιωμα και του κεκραγεναι με ετι προς τον
  29. και ειπεν αυτω ο βασιλευς ινα τι λαλεις ετι τους λογους σου ειπον συ και σιβα διελεισθε τον
  30. και ειπεν μεμφιβοσθε προς τον βασιλεα και γε τα παντα λαβετω μετα το παραγενεσθαι τον κυριον μου τον βασιλεα εν ειρηνη εις τον οικον
  31. και βερζελλι ο γαλααδιτης κατεβη εκ ρωγελλιμ και διεβη μετα του βασιλεως τον ιορδανην εκπεμψαι αυτον τον
  32. και βερζελλι ανηρ πρεσβυτερος σφοδρα υιος ογδοηκοντα ετων και αυτος διεθρεψεν τον βασιλεα εν τω οικειν αυτον εν μαναιμ οτι ανηρ μεγας εστιν
  33. και ειπεν ο βασιλευς προς βερζελλι συ διαβηση μετ' εμου και διαθρεψω το γηρας σου μετ' εμου εν
  34. και ειπεν βερζελλι προς τον βασιλεα ποσαι ημεραι ετων ζωης μου οτι αναβησομαι μετα του βασιλεως εις
  35. υιος ογδοηκοντα ετων εγω ειμι σημερον μη γνωσομαι ανα μεσον αγαθου και κακου η γευσεται ο δουλος σου ετι ο φαγομαι η πιομαι η ακουσομαι ετι φωνην αδοντων και αδουσων ινα τι εσται ετι ο δουλος σου εις φορτιον επι τον κυριον μου τον
  36. ως βραχυ διαβησεται ο δουλος σου τον ιορδανην μετα του βασιλεως και ινα τι ανταποδιδωσιν μοι ο βασιλευς την ανταποδοσιν
  37. καθισατω δη ο δουλος σου και αποθανουμαι εν τη πολει μου παρα τω ταφω του πατρος μου και της μητρος μου και ιδου ο δουλος σου χαμααμ διαβησεται μετα του κυριου μου του βασιλεως και ποιησον αυτω το αγαθον εν οφθαλμοις
  38. και ειπεν ο βασιλευς μετ' εμου διαβητω χαμααμ καγω ποιησω αυτω το αγαθον εν οφθαλμοις σου και παντα οσα εκλεξη επ' εμοι ποιησω
  39. και διεβη πας ο λαος τον ιορδανην και ο βασιλευς διεβη και κατεφιλησεν ο βασιλευς τον βερζελλι και ευλογησεν αυτον και επεστρεψεν εις τον τοπον
  40. και διεβη ο βασιλευς εις γαλγαλα και χαμααμ διεβη μετ' αυτου και πας ο λαος ιουδα διαβαινοντες μετα του βασιλεως και γε το ημισυ του λαου
  41. και ιδου πας ανηρ ισραηλ παρεγενοντο προς τον βασιλεα και ειπον προς τον βασιλεα τι οτι εκλεψαν σε οι αδελφοι ημων ανηρ ιουδα και διεβιβασαν τον βασιλεα και τον οικον αυτου τον ιορδανην και παντες ανδρες δαυιδ μετ'
  42. και απεκριθη πας ανηρ ιουδα προς ανδρα ισραηλ και ειπαν διοτι εγγιζει προς με ο βασιλευς και ινα τι ουτως εθυμωθης περι του λογου τουτου μη βρωσει εφαγαμεν εκ του βασιλεως η δομα εδωκεν η αρσιν ηρεν
  43. και απεκριθη ανηρ ισραηλ τω ανδρι ιουδα και ειπεν δεκα χειρες μοι εν τω βασιλει και πρωτοτοκος εγω η συ και γε εν τω δαυιδ ειμι υπερ σε και ινα τι τουτο υβρισας με και ουκ ελογισθη ο λογος μου πρωτος μοι του επιστρεψαι τον βασιλεα εμοι και εσκληρυνθη ο λογος ανδρος ιουδα υπερ τον λογον ανδρος
2 Samuel 19 Text (Latin)
  1. Nuntiatum est autem Joab quod rex fleret et lugeret filium suum :
  2. et versa est victoria in luctum in die illa omni populo : audivit enim populus in die illa dici : Dolet rex super filio suo.
  3. Et declinavit populus in die illa ingredi civitatem, quomodo declinare solet populus versus et fugiens de prælio.
  4. Porro rex operuit caput suum, et clamabat voce magna : Fili mi Absalom, Absalom fili mi, fili mi.
  5. Ingressus ergo Joab ad regem in domum, dixit : Confudisti hodie vultus omnium servorum tuorum, qui salvam fecerunt animam tuam, et animam filiorum tuorum, et filiarum tuarum, et animam uxorum tuarum, et animam concubinarum tuarum.
  6. Diligis odientes te, et odio habes diligentes te : et ostendisti hodie quia non curas de ducibus tuis, et de servis tuis : et vere cognovi modo, quia si Absalom viveret, et omnes nos occubuissemus, tunc placeret tibi.
  7. Nunc igitur surge, et procede, et alloquens satisfac servis tuis : juro enim tibi per Dominum, quod si non exieris, ne unus quidem remansurus sit tecum nocte hac : et pejus erit hoc tibi, quam omnia mala quæ venerunt super te ab adolescentia tua usque in præsens.
  8. Surrexit ergo rex et sedit in porta : et omni populo nuntiatum est quod rex sederet in porta : venitque universa multitudo coram rege : Israël autem fugit in tabernacula sua.
  9. Omnis quoque populus certabat in cunctis tribubus Israël, dicens : Rex liberavit nos de manu inimicorum nostrorum, ipse salvavit nos de manu Philisthinorum : et nunc fugit de terra propter Absalom.
  10. Absalom autem, quem unximus super nos, mortuus est in bello : usquequo siletis, et non reducitis regem ?
  11. Rex vero David misit ad Sadoc et Abiathar sacerdotes, dicens : Loquimini ad majores natu Juda, dicentes : Cur venitis novissimi ad reducendum regem in domum suam ? (Sermo autem omnis Israël pervenerat ad regem in domo ejus.)
  12. Fratres mei vos, os meum, et caro mea vos, quare novissimi reducitis regem ?
  13. Et Amasæ dicite : Nonne os meum, et caro mea es ? Hæc faciat mihi Deus, et hæc addat, si non magister militiæ fueris coram me omni tempore pro Joab.
  14. Et inclinavit cor omnium virorum Juda, quasi viri unius : miseruntque ad regem, dicentes : Revertere tu, et omnes servi tui.
  15. Et reversus est rex : et venit usque ad Jordanem, et omnis Juda venit usque in Galgalam ut occurreret regi, et traduceret eum Jordanem.
  16. Festinavit autem Semei filius Gera filii Jemini de Bahurim, et descendit cum viris Juda in occursum regis David
  17. cum mille viris de Benjamin, et Siba puer de domo Saul : et quindecim filii ejus, ac viginti servi erant cum eo : et irrumpentes Jordanem, ante regem
  18. transierunt vada, ut traducerent domum regis, et facerent juxta jussionem ejus : Semei autem filius Gera prostratus coram rege, cum jam transisset Jordanem,
  19. dixit ad eum : Ne reputes mihi domine mi iniquitatem, neque memineris injuriarum servi tui in die qua egressus es domine mi rex de Jerusalem, neque ponas rex in corde tuo.
  20. Agnosco enim servus tuus peccatum meum : et idcirco hodie primus veni de omni domo Joseph, descendique de omni domo Joseph, descendique in occursum domini mei regis.
  21. Respondens vero Abisai filius Sarviæ, dixit : Numquid pro his verbis non occidetur Semei, quia maledixit christo Domini ?
  22. Et ait David : Quid mihi et vobis, filii Sarviæ ? cur efficimini mihi hodie in satan ? Ergone hodie interficietur vir in Israël ? an ignoro hodie me factum regem super Israël ?
  23. Et ait rex Semei : Non morieris. Juravitque ei.
  24. Miphiboseth quoque filius Saul descendit in occursum regis, illotis pedibus, et intonsa barba : vestesque suas non laverat a die qua egressus fuerat rex, usque ad diem reversionis ejus in pace.
  25. Cumque Jerusalem occurrisset regi, dixit ei rex : Quare non venisti mecum Miphiboseth ?
  26. Et respondens ait : Domine mi rex, servus meus contempsit me : dixique ei ego famulus tuus ut sterneret mihi asinum, et ascendens abirem cum rege : claudus enim sum servus tuus.
  27. Insuper et accusavit me servum tuum ad te dominum meum regem : tu autem domine mi rex, sicut angelus Dei es : fac quod placitum est tibi.
  28. Neque enim fuit domus patris mei, nisi morti obnoxia domino meo regi : tu autem posuisti me servum tuum inter convivas mensæ tuæ : quid ergo habeo justæ querelæ ? aut quid possum ultra vociferari ad regem ?
  29. Ait ergo ei rex : Quid ultra loqueris ? fixum est quod locutus sum : tu et Siba dividite possessiones.
  30. Responditque Miphiboseth regi : Etiam cuncta accipiat, postquam reversus est dominus meus rex pacifice in domum suam.
  31. Berzellai quoque Galaadites, descendens de Rogelim, traduxit regem Jordanem, paratus etiam ultra fluvium prosequi eum.
  32. Erat autem Berzellai Galaadites senex valde, id est, octogenarius, et ipse præbuit alimenta regi, cum moraretur in castris : fuit quippe vir dives nimis.
  33. Dixit itaque rex ad Berzellai : Veni mecum, ut requiescas securus mecum in Jerusalem.
  34. Et ait Berzellai ad regem : Quot sunt dies annorum vitæ meæ, ut ascendam cum rege in Jerusalem ?
  35. Octogenarius sum hodie : numquid vigent sensus mei ad discernendum suave, aut amarum ? aut delectare potest servum tuum cibus et potus ? vel audire possum ultra vocem cantorum, atque cantatricum ? quare servus tuus sit oneri domino meo regi ?
  36. Paululum procedam famulus tuus ab Jordane tecum : non indigeo hac vicissitudine,
  37. sed obsecro ut revertar servus tuus, et moriar in civitate mea, et sepeliar juxta sepulchrum patris mei et matris meæ. Est autem servus tuus Chamaam, ipse vadat tecum, domine mi rex, et fac ei quidquid tibi bonum videtur.
  38. Dixit itaque ei rex : Mecum transeat Chamaam, et ego faciam ei quidquid tibi placuerit, et omne quod petieris a me, impetrabis.
  39. Cumque transisset universus populus et rex Jordanem, osculatus est rex Berzellai, et benedixit ei : et ille reversus est in locum suum.
  40. Transivit ergo rex in Galgalam, et Chamaam cum eo. Omnis autem populus Juda traduxerat regem, et media tantum pars adfuerat de populo Israël.
  41. Itaque omnes viri Israël concurrentes ad regem dixerunt ei : Quare te furati sunt fratres nostri viri Juda, et traduxerunt regem et domum ejus Jordanem, omnesque viros David cum eo ?
  42. Et respondit omnis vir Juda ad viros Israël : Quia mihi propior est rex : cur irasceris super hac re ? numquid comedimus aliquid ex rege, aut munera nobis data sunt ?
  43. Et respondit vir Israël ad viros Juda, et ait : Decem partibus major ego sum apud regem, magisque ad me pertinet David quam ad te : cur fecisti mihi injuriam, et non mihi nuntiatum est priori, ut reducerem regem meum ? Durius autem responderunt viri Juda viris Israël.
2 Samuel 19 Text (KJV)
  1. And it was told Joab, Behold, the king weepeth and mourneth for Absalom.
  2. And the victory that day was turned into mourning unto all the people: for the people heard say that day how the king was grieved for his son.
  3. And the people gat them by stealth that day into the city, as people being ashamed steal away when they flee in battle.
  4. But the king covered his face, and the king cried with a loud voice, O my son Absalom, O Absalom, my son, my son!
  5. And Joab came into the house to the king, and said, Thou hast shamed this day the faces of all thy servants, which this day have saved thy life, and the lives of thy sons and of thy daughters, and the lives of thy wives, and the lives of thy concubines;
  6. In that thou lovest thine enemies, and hatest thy friends. For thou hast declared this day, that thou regardest neither princes nor servants: for this day I perceive, that if Absalom had lived, and all we had died this day, then it had pleased thee well.
  7. Now therefore arise, go forth, and speak comfortably unto thy servants: for I swear by the LORD, if thou go not forth, there will not tarry one with thee this night: and that will be worse unto thee than all the evil that befell thee from thy youth until now.
  8. Then the king arose, and sat in the gate. And they told unto all the people, saying, Behold, the king doth sit in the gate. And all the people came before the king: for Israel had fled every man to his tent.
  9. And all the people were at strife throughout all the tribes of Israel, saying, The king saved us out of the hand of our enemies, and he delivered us out of the hand of the Philistines; and now he is fled out of the land for Absalom.
  10. And Absalom, whom we anointed over us, is dead in battle. Now therefore why speak ye not a word of bringing the king back?
  11. And king David sent to Zadok and to Abiathar the priests, saying, Speak unto the elders of Judah, saying, Why are ye the last to bring the king back to his house? seeing the speech of all Israel is come to the king, even to his house.
  12. Ye are my brethren, ye are my bones and my flesh: wherefore then are ye the last to bring back the king?
  13. And say ye to Amasa, Art thou not of my bone, and of my flesh? God do so to me, and more also, if thou be not captain of the host before me continually in the room of Joab.
  14. And he bowed the heart of all the men of Judah, even as the heart of one man; so that they sent this word unto the king, Return thou, and all thy servants.
  15. So the king returned, and came to Jordan. And Judah came to Gilgal, to go to meet the king, to conduct the king over Jordan.
  16. And Shimei the son of Gera, a Benjamite, which was of Bahurim, hasted and came down with the men of Judah to meet king David.
  17. And there were a thousand men of Benjamin with him, and Ziba the servant of the house of Saul, and his fifteen sons and his twenty servants with him; and they went over Jordan before the king.
  18. And there went over a ferry boat to carry over the king's household, and to do what he thought good. And Shimei the son of Gera fell down before the king, as he was come over Jordan;
  19. And said unto the king, Let not my lord impute iniquity unto me, neither do thou remember that which thy servant did perversely the day that my lord the king went out of Jerusalem, that the king should take it to his heart.
  20. For thy servant doth know that I have sinned: therefore, behold, I am come the first this day of all the house of Joseph to go down to meet my lord the king.
  21. But Abishai the son of Zeruiah answered and said, Shall not Shimei be put to death for this, because he cursed the LORD's anointed?
  22. And David said, What have I to do with you, ye sons of Zeruiah, that ye should this day be adversaries unto me? shall there any man be put to death this day in Israel? for do not I know that I am this day king over Israel?
  23. Therefore the king said unto Shimei, Thou shalt not die. And the king sware unto him.
  24. And Mephibosheth the son of Saul came down to meet the king, and had neither dressed his feet, nor trimmed his beard, nor washed his clothes, from the day the king departed until the day he came again in peace.
  25. And it came to pass, when he was come to Jerusalem to meet the king, that the king said unto him, Wherefore wentest not thou with me, Mephibosheth?
  26. And he answered, My lord, O king, my servant deceived me: for thy servant said, I will saddle me an ass, that I may ride thereon, and go to the king; because thy servant is lame.
  27. And he hath slandered thy servant unto my lord the king; but my lord the king is as an angel of God: do therefore what is good in thine eyes.
  28. For all of my father's house were but dead men before my lord the king: yet didst thou set thy servant among them that did eat at thine own table. What right therefore have I yet to cry any more unto the king?
  29. And the king said unto him, Why speakest thou any more of thy matters? I have said, Thou and Ziba divide the land.
  30. And Mephibosheth said unto the king, Yea, let him take all, forasmuch as my lord the king is come again in peace unto his own house.
  31. And Barzillai the Gileadite came down from Rogelim, and went over Jordan with the king, to conduct him over Jordan.
  32. Now Barzillai was a very aged man, even fourscore years old: and he had provided the king of sustenance while he lay at Mahanaim; for he was a very great man.
  33. And the king said unto Barzillai, Come thou over with me, and I will feed thee with me in Jerusalem.
  34. And Barzillai said unto the king, How long have I to live, that I should go up with the king unto Jerusalem?
  35. I am this day fourscore years old: and can I discern between good and evil? can thy servant taste what I eat or what I drink? can I hear any more the voice of singing men and singing women? wherefore then should thy servant be yet a burden unto my lord the king?
  36. Thy servant will go a little way over Jordan with the king: and why should the king recompense it me with such a reward?
  37. Let thy servant, I pray thee, turn back again, that I may die in mine own city, and be buried by the grave of my father and of my mother. But behold thy servant Chimham; let him go over with my lord the king; and do to him what shall seem good unto thee.
  38. And the king answered, Chimham shall go over with me, and I will do to him that which shall seem good unto thee: and whatsoever thou shalt require of me, that will I do for thee.
  39. And all the people went over Jordan. And when the king was come over, the king kissed Barzillai, and blessed him; and he returned unto his own place.
  40. Then the king went on to Gilgal, and Chimham went on with him: and all the people of Judah conducted the king, and also half the people of Israel.
  41. And, behold, all the men of Israel came to the king, and said unto the king, Why have our brethren the men of Judah stolen thee away, and have brought the king, and his household, and all David's men with him, over Jordan?
  42. And all the men of Judah answered the men of Israel, Because the king is near of kin to us: wherefore then be ye angry for this matter? have we eaten at all of the king's cost? or hath he given us any gift?
  43. And the men of Israel answered the men of Judah, and said, We have ten parts in the king, and we have also more right in David than ye: why then did ye despise us, that our advice should not be first had in bringing back our king? And the words of the men of Judah were fiercer than the words of the men of Israel.
