2 Samuel 3 Text (WEB)
  1. Now there was long war between the house of Saul and the house of David: and David grew stronger and stronger, but the house of Saul grew weaker and weaker.
  2. To David were sons born in Hebron: and his firstborn was Amnon, of Ahinoam the Jezreelitess;
  3. and his second, Chileab, of Abigail the wife of Nabal the Carmelite; and the third, Absalom the son of Maacah the daughter of Talmai king of Geshur;
  4. and the fourth, Adonijah the son of Haggith; and the fifth, Shephatiah the son of Abital;
  5. and the sixth, Ithream, of Eglah, David's wife. These were born to David in Hebron.
  6. It happened, while there was war between the house of Saul and the house of David, that Abner made himself strong in the house of Saul.
  7. Now Saul had a concubine, whose name was Rizpah, the daughter of Aiah: and [Ishbosheth] said to Abner, "Why have you gone in to my father's concubine?"
  8. Then was Abner very angry for the words of Ishbosheth, and said, "Am I a dog's head that belongs to Judah? Today I show kindness to the house of Saul your father, to his brothers, and to his friends, and have not delivered you into the hand of David; and yet you charge me this day with a fault concerning this woman!
  9. God do so to Abner, and more also, if, as Yahweh has sworn to David, I don't do even so to him;
  10. to transfer the kingdom from the house of Saul, and to set up the throne of David over Israel and over Judah, from Dan even to Beersheba."
  11. He could not answer Abner another word, because he feared him.
  12. Abner sent messengers to David on his behalf, saying, "Whose is the land?" and saying, "Make your alliance with me, and behold, my hand shall be with you, to bring all Israel around to you."
  13. He said, "Good; I will make a treaty with you; but one thing I require of you. That is, you shall not see my face, unless you first bring Michal, Saul's daughter, when you come to see my face."
  14. David sent messengers to Ishbosheth, Saul's son, saying, "Deliver me my wife Michal, whom I pledged to be married to me for one hundred foreskins of the Philistines."
  15. Ishbosheth sent, and took her from her husband, even from Paltiel the son of Laish.
  16. Her husband went with her, weeping as he went, and followed her to Bahurim. Then Abner said to him, "Go! Return!" and he returned.
  17. Abner had communication with the elders of Israel, saying, "In times past, you sought for David to be king over you.
  18. Now then do it; for Yahweh has spoken of David, saying, 'By the hand of my servant David, I will save my people Israel out of the hand of the Philistines, and out of the hand of all their enemies.'"
  19. Abner also spoke in the ears of Benjamin: and Abner went also to speak in the ears of David in Hebron all that seemed good to Israel, and to the whole house of Benjamin.
  20. So Abner came to David to Hebron, and twenty men with him. David made Abner and the men who were with him a feast.
  21. Abner said to David, "I will arise and go, and will gather all Israel to my lord the king, that they may make a covenant with you, and that you may reign over all that your soul desires." David sent Abner away; and he went in peace.
  22. Behold, the servants of David and Joab came from a foray, and brought in a great spoil with them: but Abner was not with David in Hebron; for he had sent him away, and he was gone in peace.
  23. When Joab and all the army who was with him had come, they told Joab, saying, Abner the son of Ner came to the king, and he has sent him away, and he is gone in peace.
  24. Then Joab came to the king, and said, "What have you done? Behold, Abner came to you. Why is it that you have sent him away, and he is quite gone?
  25. You know Abner the son of Ner, that he came to deceive you, and to know your going out and your coming in, and to know all that you do."
  26. When Joab had come out from David, he sent messengers after Abner, and they brought him back from the well of Sirah; but David didn't know it.
  27. When Abner was returned to Hebron, Joab took him aside into the midst of the gate to speak with him quietly, and struck him there in the body, so that he died, for the blood of Asahel his brother.
  28. Afterward, when David heard it, he said, "I and my kingdom are guiltless before Yahweh forever of the blood of Abner the son of Ner.
  29. Let it fall on the head of Joab, and on all his father's house. Let there not fail from the house of Joab one who has an issue, or who is a leper, or who leans on a staff, or who falls by the sword, or who lacks bread."
  30. So Joab and Abishai his brother killed Abner, because he had killed their brother Asahel at Gibeon in the battle.
  31. David said to Joab, and to all the people who were with him, Tear your clothes, and clothe yourselves with sackcloth, and mourn before Abner. King David followed the bier.
  32. They buried Abner in Hebron: and the king lifted up his voice, and wept at the grave of Abner; and all the people wept.
  33. The king lamented for Abner, and said, "Should Abner die as a fool dies?
  34. Your hands were not bound, nor your feet put into fetters. As a man falls before the children of iniquity, so you fell." All the people wept again over him.
  35. All the people came to cause David to eat bread while it was yet day; but David swore, saying, "God do so to me, and more also, if I taste bread, or anything else, until the sun goes down."
  36. All the people took notice of it, and it pleased them; as whatever the king did pleased all the people.
  37. So all the people and all Israel understood that day that it was not of the king to kill Abner the son of Ner.
  38. The king said to his servants, "Don't you know that there a prince and a great man has fallen this day in Israel?
  39. I am this day weak, though anointed king; and these men the sons of Zeruiah are too hard for me. May Yahweh reward the evildoer according to his wickedness."

  1. ותהי המלחמה ארכה בין בית שאול ובין בית דוד ודוד הלך וחזק ובית שאול הלכים ודלים׃ ס

  8. ויחר לאבנר מאד על־דברי איש־בשת ויאמר הראש כלב אנכי אשר ליהודה היום אעשה־חסד עם־בית שאול אביך אל־אחיו ואל־מרעהו ולא המציתך ביד־דוד ותפקד עלי עון האשה היום׃
  9. כה־יעשה אלהים לאבנר וכה יסיף לו כי כאשר נשבע יהוה לדוד כי־כן אעשה־לו׃
  10. להעביר הממלכה מבית שאול ולהקים את־כסא דוד על־ישראל ועל־יהודה מדן ועד־באר שבע׃
  11. ולא־יכל עוד להשיב את־אבנר דבר מיראתו אתו׃ ס
  12. וישלח אבנר מלאכים אל־דוד לאמר למי־ארץ לאמר כרתה בריתך אתי והנה ידי עמך להסב אליך את־כל־ישראל׃
  13. ויאמר טוב אני אכרת אתך ברית אך דבר אחד אנכי שאל מאתך לאמר לא־תראה את־פני כי אם־לפני הביאך את מיכל בת־שאול בבאך לראות את־פני׃ ס
  14. וישלח דוד מלאכים אל־איש־בשת בן־שאול לאמר תנה את־אשתי את־מיכל אשר ארשתי לי במאה ערלות פלשתים׃
  15. וישלח איש בשת ויקחה מעם איש מעם פלטיאל בן־ ׃
  16. וילך אתה אישה הלוך ובכה אחריה עד־בחרים ויאמר אליו אבנר לך שוב וישב׃
  17. ודבר־אבנר היה עם־זקני ישראל לאמר גם־תמול גם־שלשם הייתם מבקשים את־דוד למלך עליכם׃
  18. ועתה עשו כי יהוה אמר אל־דוד לאמר ביד דוד עבדי הושיע את־עמי ישראל מיד פלשתים ומיד כל־איביהם׃
  19. וידבר גם־אבנר באזני בנימין וילך גם־אבנר לדבר באזני דוד בחברון את כל־אשר־טוב בעיני ישראל ובעיני כל־בית בנימן׃
  20. ויבא אבנר אל־דוד חברון ואתו עשרים אנשים ויעש דוד לאבנר ולאנשים אשר־אתו משתה׃
  21. ויאמר אבנר אל־דוד אקומה ואלכה ואקבצה אל־אדני המלך את־כל־ישראל ויכרתו אתך ברית ומלכת בכל אשר־תאוה נפשך וישלח דוד את־אבנר וילך בשלום׃
  22. והנה עבדי דוד ויואב בא מהגדוד ושלל רב עםם הביאו ואבנר איננו עם־דוד בחברון כי שלחו וילך בשלום׃
  23. ויואב וכל־הצבא אשר־אתו באו ויגדו ליואב לאמר בא־אבנר בן־נר אל־המלך וישלחהו וילך בשלום׃
  24. ויבא יואב אל־המלך ויאמר מה עשיתה הנה־בא אבנר אליך למה־זה שלחתו וילך הלוך׃
  25. ידעת את־אבנר בן־נר כי לפתתך בא ולדעת את־מוצאך ואת־ ולדעת את כל־אשר אתה עשה׃
  26. ויצא יואב מעם דוד וישלח מלאכים אחרי אבנר וישבו אתו מבור הסרה ודוד לא ידע׃
  27. וישב אבנר חברון ויטהו יואב אל־תוך השער לדבר אתו בשלי ויכהו שם החמש וימת בדם עשה־אל אחיו׃
  28. וישמע דוד מאחרי כן ויאמר נקי אנכי וממלכתי מעם יהוה עד־עולם מדמי אבנר בן־נר׃
  29. יחלו על־ראש יואב ואל כל־בית אביו ואל־יכרת מבית יואב זב ומצרע ומחזיק בפלך ונפל בחרב וחסר־לחם׃
  30. ויואב ואבישי אחיו הרגו לאבנר על אשר המית את־עשהאל אחיהם בגבעון במלחמה׃ ף
  31. ויאמר דוד אל־יואב ואל־כל־העם אשר־אתו קרעו בגדיכם וחגרו שקים וספדו לפני אבנר והמלך דוד הלך אחרי המטה׃
  32. ויקברו את־אבנר בחברון וישא המלך את־קולו ויבך אל־קבר אבנר ויבכו כל־העם׃ ף
  33. ויקןן המלך אל־אבנר ויאמר הכמות נבל ימות אבנר׃
  34. ידך לא־אסרות ורגליך לא־לנחשתים הגשו כנפול לפני בני־עולה נפלת ויספו כל־העם לבכות עליו׃
  35. ויבא כל־העם להברות את־דוד לחם בעוד היום וישבע דוד לאמר כה יעשה־לי אלהים וכה יסיף כי אם־לפני בוא־השמש אטעם־לחם או כל־מאומה׃
  36. וכל־העם הכירו וייטב בעיניהם ככל אשר עשה המלך בעיני כל־העם טוב׃
  37. וידעו כל־העם וכל־ישראל ביום ההוא כי לא היתה מהמלך להמית את־אבנר בן־נר׃ ף
  38. ויאמר המלך אל־עבדיו הלוא תדעו כי־שר וגדול נפל היום הזה בישראל׃
  39. ואנכי היום רך ומשוח מלך והאנשים האלה בני צרויה קשים ממני ישלם יהוה לעשה הרעה כרעתו׃ ף
2 Samuel 3 Text (Greek)
  1. και εγενετο ο πολεμος επι πολυ ανα μεσον του οικου σαουλ και ανα μεσον του οικου δαυιδ και ο οικος δαυιδ επορευετο και εκραταιουτο και ο οικος σαουλ επορευετο και
  2. και ετεχθησαν τω δαυιδ υιοι εν χεβρων και ην ο πρωτοτοκος αυτου αμνων της αχινοομ της
  3. και ο δευτερος αυτου δαλουια της αβιγαιας της καρμηλιας και ο τριτος αβεσσαλωμ υιος μααχα θυγατρος θολμι βασιλεως
  4. και ο τεταρτος ορνια υιος φεγγιθ και ο πεμπτος σαβατια της
  5. και ο εκτος ιεθερααμ της αιγλα γυναικος δαυιδ ουτοι ετεχθησαν τω δαυιδ εν
  6. και εγενετο εν τω ειναι τον πολεμον ανα μεσον του οικου σαουλ και ανα μεσον του οικου δαυιδ και αβεννηρ ην κρατων του οικου
  7. και τω σαουλ παλλακη ρεσφα θυγατηρ ιαλ και ειπεν μεμφιβοσθε υιος σαουλ προς αβεννηρ τι οτι εισηλθες προς την παλλακην του πατρος
  8. και εθυμωθη σφοδρα αβεννηρ περι του λογου μεμφιβοσθε και ειπεν αβεννηρ προς αυτον μη κεφαλη κυνος εγω ειμι εποιησα ελεος σημερον μετα του οικου σαουλ του πατρος σου και περι αδελφων και γνωριμων και ουκ ηυτομολησα εις τον οικον δαυιδ και επιζητεις επ' εμε υπερ αδικιας γυναικος
  9. ταδε ποιησαι ο θεος τω αβεννηρ και ταδε προσθειη αυτω οτι καθως ωμοσεν κυριος τω δαυιδ οτι ουτως ποιησω αυτω εν τη ημερα
  10. περιελειν την βασιλειαν απο του οικου σαουλ και του αναστησαι τον θρονον δαυιδ επι ισραηλ και επι τον ιουδαν απο δαν εως
  11. και ουκ ηδυνασθη ετι μεμφιβοσθε αποκριθηναι τω αβεννηρ ρημα απο του φοβεισθαι
  12. και απεστειλεν αβεννηρ αγγελους προς δαυιδ εις θαιλαμ ου ην παραχρημα λεγων διαθου διαθηκην σου μετ' εμου και ιδου η χειρ μου μετα σου του επιστρεψαι προς σε παντα τον οικον
  13. και ειπεν δαυιδ εγω καλως διαθησομαι προς σε διαθηκην πλην λογον ενα εγω αιτουμαι παρα σου λεγων ουκ οψει το προσωπον μου εαν μη αγαγης την μελχολ θυγατερα σαουλ παραγινομενου σου ιδειν το προσωπον
  14. και εξαπεστειλεν δαυιδ προς μεμφιβοσθε υιον σαουλ αγγελους λεγων αποδος μοι την γυναικα μου την μελχολ ην ελαβον εν εκατον ακροβυστιαις
  15. και απεστειλεν μεμφιβοσθε και ελαβεν αυτην παρα του ανδρος αυτης παρα φαλτιηλ υιου
  16. και επορευετο ο ανηρ αυτης μετ' αυτης κλαιων οπισω αυτης εως βαρακιμ και ειπεν προς αυτον αβεννηρ πορευου αναστρεφε και
  17. και ειπεν αβεννηρ προς τους πρεσβυτερους ισραηλ λεγων εχθες και τριτην εζητειτε τον δαυιδ βασιλευειν εφ'
  18. και νυν ποιησατε οτι κυριος ελαλησεν περι δαυιδ λεγων εν χειρι του δουλου μου δαυιδ σωσω τον ισραηλ εκ χειρος αλλοφυλων και εκ χειρος παντων των εχθρων
  19. και ελαλησεν αβεννηρ εν τοις ωσιν βενιαμιν και επορευθη αβεννηρ του λαλησαι εις τα ωτα του δαυιδ εις χεβρων παντα οσα ηρεσεν εν οφθαλμοις ισραηλ και εν οφθαλμοις παντος οικου
  20. και ηλθεν αβεννηρ προς δαυιδ εις χεβρων και μετ' αυτου εικοσι ανδρες και εποιησεν δαυιδ τω αβεννηρ και τοις ανδρασιν τοις μετ' αυτου
  21. και ειπεν αβεννηρ προς δαυιδ αναστησομαι δη και πορευσομαι και συναθροισω προς κυριον μου τον βασιλεα παντα ισραηλ και διαθησομαι μετα σου διαθηκην και βασιλευσεις επι πασιν οις επιθυμει η ψυχη σου και απεστειλεν δαυιδ τον αβεννηρ και επορευθη εν
  22. και ιδου οι παιδες δαυιδ και ιωαβ παρεγινοντο εκ της εξοδιας και σκυλα πολλα εφερον μετ' αυτων και αβεννηρ ουκ ην μετα δαυιδ εις χεβρων οτι απεσταλκει αυτον και απεληλυθει εν
  23. και ιωαβ και πασα η στρατια αυτου ηχθησαν και απηγγελη τω ιωαβ λεγοντες ηκει αβεννηρ υιος νηρ προς δαυιδ και απεσταλκεν αυτον και απηλθεν εν
  24. η ουκ οιδας την κακιαν αβεννηρ υιου νηρ οτι απατησαι σε παρεγενετο και γνωναι την εξοδον σου και την εισοδον σου και γνωναι απαντα οσα συ
  25. η ουκ οιδας την κακιαν αβεννηρ υιου νηρ οτι απατησαι σε παρεγενετο και γνωναι την εξοδον σου και την εισοδον σου και γνωναι απαντα οσα συ
  26. και ανεστρεψεν ιωαβ απο του δαυιδ και απεστειλεν αγγελους οπισω αβεννηρ και επιστρεφουσιν αυτον απο του φρεατος του σειραμ και δαυιδ ουκ
  27. και επεστρεψεν αβεννηρ εις χεβρων και εξεκλινεν αυτον ιωαβ εκ πλαγιων της πυλης λαλησαι προς αυτον ενεδρευων και επαταξεν αυτον εκει επι την ψοαν και απεθανεν εν τω αιματι ασαηλ του αδελφου
  28. και ηκουσεν δαυιδ μετα ταυτα και ειπεν αθωος ειμι εγω και η βασιλεια μου απο κυριου εως αιωνος απο των αιματων αβεννηρ υιου
  29. καταντησατωσαν επι κεφαλην ιωαβ και επι παντα τον οικον του πατρος αυτου και μη εκλιποι εκ του οικου ιωαβ γονορρυης και λεπρος και κρατων σκυταλης και πιπτων εν ρομφαια και ελασσουμενος
  30. ιωαβ δε και αβεσσα ο αδελφος αυτου διεπαρετηρουντο τον αβεννηρ ανθ' ων εθανατωσεν τον ασαηλ τον αδελφον αυτων εν γαβαων εν τω
  31. και ειπεν δαυιδ προς ιωαβ και προς παντα τον λαον τον μετ' αυτου διαρρηξατε τα ιματια υμων και περιζωσασθε σακκους και κοπτεσθε εμπροσθεν αβεννηρ και ο βασιλευς δαυιδ επορευετο οπισω της
  32. και θαπτουσιν τον αβεννηρ εις χεβρων και ηρεν ο βασιλευς την φωνην αυτου και εκλαυσεν επι του ταφου αυτου και εκλαυσεν πας ο λαος επι
  33. και εθρηνησεν ο βασιλευς επι αβεννηρ και ειπεν ει κατα τον θανατον ναβαλ αποθανειται
  34. αι χειρες σου ουκ εδεθησαν οι ποδες σου ουκ εν πεδαις ου προσηγαγεν ως ναβαλ ενωπιον υιων αδικιας επεσας και συνηχθη πας ο λαος του κλαυσαι
  35. και ηλθεν πας ο λαος περιδειπνησαι τον δαυιδ αρτοις ετι ουσης ημερας και ωμοσεν δαυιδ λεγων ταδε ποιησαι μοι ο θεος και ταδε προσθειη οτι εαν μη δυη ο ηλιος ου μη γευσωμαι αρτου η απο παντος
  36. και εγνω πας ο λαος και ηρεσεν ενωπιον αυτων παντα οσα εποιησεν ο βασιλευς ενωπιον του
  37. και εγνω πας ο λαος και πας ισραηλ εν τη ημερα εκεινη οτι ουκ εγενετο παρα του βασιλεως θανατωσαι τον αβεννηρ υιον
  38. και ειπεν ο βασιλευς προς τους παιδας αυτου ουκ οιδατε οτι ηγουμενος μεγας πεπτωκεν εν τη ημερα ταυτη εν τω
  39. και οτι εγω ειμι σημερον συγγενης και καθεσταμενος υπο βασιλεως οι δε ανδρες ουτοι υιοι σαρουιας σκληροτεροι μου εισιν ανταποδω κυριος τω ποιουντι πονηρα κατα την κακιαν
2 Samuel 3 Text (Latin)
  1. Facta est ergo longa concertatio inter domum Saul, et inter domum David : David proficiscens, et semper seipso robustior, domus autem Saul decrescens quotidie.
  2. Natique sunt filii David in Hebron : fuitque primogenitus ejus Amnon, de Achinoam Jezraëlitide.
  3. Et post eum Cheleab, de Abigail uxore Nabal Carmeli : porro tertius Absalom, filius Maacha filiæ Tholmai regis Gessur.
  4. Quartus autem Adonias, filius Haggith : et quintus Saphathia, filius Abital.
  5. Sextus quoque Jethraam, de Egla uxore David : hi nati sunt David in Hebron.
  6. Cum ergo esset prælium inter domum Saul et domum David, Abner filius Ner regebat domum Saul.
  7. Fuerat autem Sauli concubina nomine Respha, filia Aja. Dixitque Isboseth ad Abner :
  8. Quare ingressus es ad concubinam patris mei ? Qui iratus nimis propter verba Isboseth, ait : Numquid caput canis ego sum adversum Judam hodie, qui fecerim misericordiam super domum Saul patris tui, et super fratres et proximos ejus, et non tradidi te in manus David, et tu requisisti in me quod argueres pro muliere hodie ?
  9. Hæc faciat Deus Abner, et hæc addat ei, nisi quomodo juravit Dominus David, sic faciam cum eo,
  10. ut transferatur regnum de domo Saul, et elevetur thronus David super Israël, et super Judam, a Dan usque Bersabee.
  11. Et non potuit respondere ei quidquam, quia metuebat illum.
  12. Misit ergo Abner nuntios ad David pro se dicentes : Cujus est terra ? et ut loquerentur : Fac mecum amicitias, et erit manus mea tecum, et reducam ad te universum Israël.
  13. Qui ait : Optime : ego faciam tecum amicitias : sed unam rem peto a te, dicens : Non videbis faciem meam antequam adduxeris Michol filiam Saul : et sic venies, et videbis me.
  14. Misit autem David nuntios ad Isboseth filium Saul, dicens : Redde uxorem meam Michol, quam despondi mihi centum præputiis Philisthiim.
  15. Misit ergo Isboseth, et tulit eam a viro suo Phaltiel, filio Lais.
  16. Sequebaturque eam vir suus, plorans usque Bahurim : et dixit ad eum Abner : Vade, et revertere. Qui reversus est.
  17. Sermonem quoque intulit Abner ad seniores Israël, dicens : Tam heri quam nudiustertius quærebatis David ut regnaret super vos.
  18. Nunc ergo facite : quoniam Dominus locutus est ad David, dicens : In manu servi mei David salvabo populum meum Israël de manu Philisthiim, et omnium inimicorum ejus.
  19. Locutus est autem Abner etiam ad Benjamin. Et abiit ut loqueretur ad David in Hebron omnia quæ placuerant Israëli et universo Benjamin.
  20. Venitque ad David in Hebron cum viginti viris : et fecit David Abner, et viris ejus qui venerant cum eo, convivium.
  21. Et dixit Abner ad David : Surgam, ut congregem ad te dominum meum regem omnem Israël, et ineam tecum fœdus, et imperes omnibus, sicut desiderat anima tua. Cum ergo deduxisset David Abner, et ille isset in pace,
  22. statim pueri David et Joab venerunt, cæsis latronibus, cum præda magna nimis : Abner autem non erat cum David in Hebron, quia jam dimiserat eum, et profectus fuerat in pace.
  23. Et Joab, et omnis exercitus, qui erat cum eo, postea venerunt : nuntiatum est itaque Joab a narrantibus : Venit Abner filius Ner ad regem, et dimisit eum, et abiit in pace.
  24. Et ingressus est Joab ad regem, et ait : Quid fecisti ? Ecce venit Abner ad te : quare dimisisti eum, et abiit et recessit ?
  25. Ignoras Abner filium Ner, quoniam ad hoc venit ad te ut deciperet te, et sciret exitum tuum, et introitum tuum, et nosset omnia quæ agis ?
  26. Egressus itaque Joab a David, misit nuntios post Abner, et reduxit eum a cisterna Sira, ignorante David.
  27. Cumque rediisset Abner in Hebron, seorsum adduxit eum Joab ad medium portæ, ut loqueretur ei, in dolo : et percussit illum ibi in inguine, et mortuus est in ultionem sanguinis Asaël fratris ejus.
  28. Quod cum audisset David rem jam gestam, ait : Mundus ego sum, et regnum meum apud Dominum usque in sempiternum a sanguine Abner filii Ner,
  29. et veniat super caput Joab, et super omnem domum patris ejus : nec deficiat de domo Joab fluxum seminis sustinens, et leprosus, et tenens fusum, et cadens gladio, et indigens pane.
  30. Igitur Joab et Abisai frater ejus interfecerunt Abner, eo quod occidisset Asaël fratrem eorum in Gabaon in prælio.
  31. Dixit autem David ad Joab, et ad omnem populum, qui erat cum eo : Scindite vestimenta vestra, et accingimini saccis, et plangite ante exequias Abner : porro rex David sequebatur feretrum.
  32. Cumque sepelissent Abner in Hebron, levavit rex David vocem suam, et flevit super tumulum Abner : flevit autem et omnis populus.
  33. Plangensque rex et lugens Abner, ait : Nequaquam ut mori solent ignavi, mortuus est Abner.
  34. Manus tuæ ligatæ non sunt, et pedes tui non sunt compedibus aggravati : sed sicut solent cadere coram filiis iniquitatis, sic corruisti. Congeminansque omnis populus flevit super eum.
  35. Cumque venisset universa multitudo cibum capere cum David, clara adhuc die juravit David, dicens : Hæc faciat mihi Deus, et hæc addat, si ante occasum solis gustavero panem vel aliud quidquam.
  36. Omnisque populus audivit, et placuerunt eis cuncta quæ fecit rex in conspectu totius populi.
  37. Et cognovit omne vulgus et universus Israël in die illa, quoniam non actum fuisset a rege ut occideretur Abner filius Ner.
  38. Dixit quoque rex ad servos suos : Num ignoratis quoniam princeps et maximus cecidit hodie in Israël ?
  39. Ego autem adhuc delicatus, et unctus rex : porro viri isti filii Sarviæ duri sunt mihi : retribuat Dominus facienti malum juxta malitiam suam.
2 Samuel 3 Text (KJV)
  1. Now there was long war between the house of Saul and the house of David: but David waxed stronger and stronger, and the house of Saul waxed weaker and weaker.
  2. And unto David were sons born in Hebron: and his firstborn was Amnon, of Ahinoam the Jezreelitess;
  3. And his second, Chileab, of Abigail the wife of Nabal the Carmelite; and the third, Absalom the son of Maacah the daughter of Talmai king of Geshur;
  4. And the fourth, Adonijah the son of Haggith; and the fifth, Shephatiah the son of Abital;
  5. And the sixth, Ithream, by Eglah David's wife. These were born to David in Hebron.
  6. And it came to pass, while there was war between the house of Saul and the house of David, that Abner made himself strong for the house of Saul.
  7. And Saul had a concubine, whose name was Rizpah, the daughter of Aiah: and Ish-bosheth said to Abner, Wherefore hast thou gone in unto my father's concubine?
  8. Then was Abner very wroth for the words of Ish-bosheth, and said, Am I a dog's head, which against Judah do shew kindness this day unto the house of Saul thy father, to his brethren, and to his friends, and have not delivered thee into the hand of David, that thou chargest me to day with a fault concerning this woman?
  9. So do God to Abner, and more also, except, as the LORD hath sworn to David, even so I do to him;
  10. To translate the kingdom from the house of Saul, and to set up the throne of David over Israel and over Judah, from Dan even to Beer-sheba.
  11. And he could not answer Abner a word again, because he feared him.
  12. And Abner sent messengers to David on his behalf, saying, Whose is the land? saying also, Make thy league with me, and, behold, my hand shall be with thee, to bring about all Israel unto thee.
  13. And he said, Well; I will make a league with thee: but one thing I require of thee, that is, Thou shalt not see my face, except thou first bring Michal Saul's daughter, when thou comest to see my face.
  14. And David sent messengers to Ish-bosheth Saul's son, saying, Deliver me my wife Michal, which I espoused to me for an hundred foreskins of the Philistines.
  15. And Ish-bosheth sent, and took her from her husband, even from Phaltiel the son of Laish.
  16. And her husband went with her along weeping behind her to Bahurim. Then said Abner unto him, Go, return. And he returned.
  17. And Abner had communication with the elders of Israel, saying, Ye sought for David in times past to be king over you:
  18. Now then do it: for the LORD hath spoken of David, saying, By the hand of my servant David I will save my people Israel out of the hand of the Philistines, and out of the hand of all their enemies.
  19. And Abner also spake in the ears of Benjamin: and Abner went also to speak in the ears of David in Hebron all that seemed good to Israel, and that seemed good to the whole house of Benjamin.
  20. So Abner came to David to Hebron, and twenty men with him. And David made Abner and the men that were with him a feast.
  21. And Abner said unto David, I will arise and go, and will gather all Israel unto my lord the king, that they may make a league with thee, and that thou mayest reign over all that thine heart desireth. And David sent Abner away; and he went in peace.
  22. And, Behold, the servants of David and Joab came from pursuing a troop, and brought in a great spoil with them: but Abner was not with David in Hebron; for he had sent him away, and he was gone in peace.
  23. When Joab and all the host that was with him were come, they told Joab, saying, Abner the son of Ner came to the king, and he hath sent him away, and he is gone in peace.
  24. Then Joab came to the king, and said, What hast thou done? behold, Abner came unto thee; why is it that thou hast sent him away, and he is quite gone?
  25. Thou knowest Abner the son of Ner, that he came to deceive thee, and to know thy going out and thy coming in, and to know all that thou doest.
  26. And when Joab was come out from David, he sent messengers after Abner, which brought him again from the well of Sirah: but David knew it not.
  27. And when Abner was returned to Hebron, Joab took him aside in the gate to speak with him quietly, and smote him there under the fifth rib, that he died, for the blood of Asahel his brother.
  28. And afterward when David heard it, he said, I and my kingdom are guiltless before the LORD for ever from the blood of Abner the son of Ner:
  29. Let it rest on the head of Joab, and on all his father's house; and let there not fail from the house of Joab one that hath an issue, or that is a leper, or that leaneth on a staff, or that falleth on the sword, or that lacketh bread.
  30. So Joab and Abishai his brother slew Abner, because he had slain their brother Asahel at Gibeon in the battle.
  31. And David said to Joab, and to all the people that were with him, Rend your clothes, and gird you with sackcloth, and mourn before Abner. And king David himself followed the bier.
  32. And they buried Abner in Hebron: and the king lifted up his voice, and wept at the grave of Abner; and all the people wept.
  33. And the king lamented over Abner, and said, Died Abner as a fool dieth?
  34. Thy hands were not bound, nor thy feet put into fetters: as a man falleth before wicked men, so fellest thou. And all the people wept again over him.
  35. And when all the people came to cause David to eat meat while it was yet day, David sware, saying, So do God to me, and more also, if I taste bread, or ought else, till the sun be down.
  36. And all the people took notice of it, and it pleased them: as whatsoever the king did pleased all the people.
  37. For all the people and all Israel understood that day that it was not of the king to slay Abner the son of Ner.
  38. And the king said unto his servants, Know ye not that there is a prince and a great man fallen this day in Israel?
  39. And I am this day weak, though anointed king; and these men the sons of Zeruiah be too hard for me: the LORD shall reward the doer of evil according to his wickedness.
