1 SAMUEL 22:12-15 LXX: “...καὶ [12.] εἶπεν Σαουλ Ἄκουε δή, υἱὲ Αχιτωβ. καὶ εἶπεν Ἰδοὺ ἐγώ· λάλει, κύριε. [13.] καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῷ Σαουλ Ἵνα τί συνέθου κατ᾽ ἐμοῦ σὺ καὶ ὁ υἱὸς Ιεσσαι δοῦναί σε αὐτῷ ἄρτον καὶ ῥομφαίαν καὶ ἐρωτᾶν αὐτῷ διὰ τοῦ θεοῦ θέσθαι αὐτὸν ἐπ᾽ ἐμὲ εἰς ἐχθρὸν ὡς ἡ ἡμέρα αὕτη; [14.] καὶ ἀπεκρίθη τῷ βασιλεῖ καὶ εἶπεν Καὶ τίς ἐν πᾶσιν τοῖς δούλοις σου ὡς Δαυιδ πιστὸς καὶ γαμβρὸς τοῦ βασιλέως καὶ ἄρχων παντὸς παραγγέλματός σου καὶ ἔνδοξος ἐν τῷ οἴκῳ σου; [15.] ἦ σήμερον ἦργμαι ἐρωτᾶν αὐτῷ διὰ τοῦ θεοῦ; μηδαμῶς. μὴ δότω ὁ βασιλεὺς κατὰ τοῦ δούλου αὐτοῦ λόγον καὶ ἐφ᾽ ὅλον τὸν οἶκον τοῦ πατρός μου, ὅτι οὐκ ᾔδει ὁ δοῦλος ὁ σὸς ἐν πᾶσιν τούτοις ῥῆμα μικρὸν ἢ μέγα...” - (, BIBLIOTHECA AUGUSTANA, Vetus Testamentum ca. 250/200 a.

1 SAMUEL 22:12-15: “...Saul [12.] now said: “Listen, please, you son of A·hi′tub!” to which he said: “Here I am, MY LORD.” [13.] And Saul went on to say to him: “Why have YOU men conspired against me, you and the son of Jes′se, by your giving him bread and a sword, and there being an inquiry of God for him, to rise up against me as a lier in ambush the way it is this day?” [14.] At this A·him′e·lech answered THE KING and said: “And who among all your servants is like David, faithful, and the son-in-law of THE KING and a chief over your bodyguard and honored in your house? [15.] Is it today that I have started to inquire of God for him? It is unthinkable on my part! Do not let THE KING lay anything against his servant [and] against the entire house of my father, for in all this your servant did not know a thing small or great...” - (“New World Translation of the Holy Scriptures,” With References, Rendered from the Original Languages by the New World Bible Translation Committee—Revised 1984.)

GREEK TEXT: “...καὶ [7.] εἶπεν Δαυιδ πρὸς τοὺς ἄνδρας αὐτοῦ Μηδαμῶς μοι παρὰ κυρίου, εἰ ποιήσω τὸ ῥῆμα τοῦτο τῷ κυρίῳ μου τῷ χριστῷ κυρίου ἐπενέγκαι χεῖρά μου ἐπ᾽ αὐτόν, ὅτι χριστὸς κυρίου ἐστὶν οὗτος· […] καὶ [9.] ἀνέστη Δαυιδ ὀπίσω αὐτοῦ ἐκ τοῦ σπηλαίου, καὶ ἐβόησεν Δαυιδ ὀπίσω Σαουλ λέγων Κύριε βασιλεῦ· καὶ ἐπέβλεψεν Σαουλ εἰς τὰ ὀπίσω αὐτοῦ, καὶ ἔκυψεν Δαυιδ ἐπὶ πρόσωπον αὐτοῦ ἐπὶ τὴν γῆν καὶ προσεκύνησεν αὐτῷ. [10.] καὶ εἶπεν Δαυιδ πρὸς Σαουλ Ἵνα τί ἀκούεις τῶν λόγων τοῦ λαοῦ λεγόντων Ἰδοὺ Δαυιδ ζητεῖ τὴν ψυχήν σου; [11.] ἰδοὺ ἐν τῇ ἡμέρᾳ ταύτῃ ἑοράκασιν οἱ ὀφθαλμοί σου ὡς παρέδωκέν σε κύριος σήμερον εἰς χεῖρά μου ἐν τῷ σπηλαίῳ, καὶ οὐκ ἠβουλήθην ἀποκτεῖναί σε καὶ ἐφεισάμην σου καὶ εἶπα Οὐκ ἐποίσω χεῖρά μου ἐπὶ κύριόν μου, ὅτι χριστὸς κυρίου οὗτός ἐστιν. [12.] καὶ ἰδοὺ τὸ πτερύγιον τῆς διπλοίδος σου ἐν τῇ χειρί μου· ἐγὼ ἀφῄρηκα τὸ πτερύγιον καὶ οὐκ ἀπέκταγκά σε. καὶ γνῶθι καὶ ἰδὲ σήμερον ὅτι οὐκ ἔστιν κακία ἐν τῇ χειρί μου οὐδὲ ἀσέβεια καὶ ἀθέτησις, καὶ οὐχ ἡμάρτηκα εἰς σέ· καὶ σὺ δεσμεύεις τὴν ψυχήν μου λαβεῖν αὐτήν. [13.] δικάσαι κύριος ἀνὰ μέσον ἐμοῦ καὶ σοῦ, καὶ ἐκδικήσαι με κύριος ἐκ σοῦ· καὶ ἡ χείρ μου οὐκ ἔσται ἐπὶ σοί, [14.] καθὼς λέγεται ἡ παραβολὴ ἡ ἀρχαία Ἐξ ἀνόμων ἐξελεύσεται πλημμέλεια· καὶ ἡ χείρ μου οὐκ ἔσται ἐπὶ σέ. [15.] καὶ νῦν ὀπίσω τίνος σὺ ἐκπορεύῃ, βασιλεῦ Ισραηλ; ὀπίσω τίνος καταδιώκεις σύ; ὀπίσω κυνὸς τεθνηκότος καὶ ὀπίσω ψύλλου ἑνός. [16.] γένοιτο κύριος εἰς κριτὴν καὶ δικαστὴν ἀνὰ μέσον ἐμοῦ καὶ ἀνὰ μέσον σοῦ· ἴδοι κύριος καὶ κρίναι τὴν κρίσιν μου καὶ δικάσαι μοι ἐκ χειρός σου...” - (Chapter 24:9-16; 1st Samuel, ΒΑΣΙΛΕΙΩ͂Ν Αʹ, BIBLIOTHECA AUGUSTANA.)

1 SAMUEL 24:6,8-15: “...Hence [6.] he said to his men: “It is unthinkable, on my part, from JEHOVAH’S standpoint, that I should do this thing to MY LORD, THE ANOINTED OF JEHOVAH, by thrusting out my hand against him, FOR HE IS THE ANOINTED OF JEHOVAH.” [...] So [8.] David rose up afterward and went out from the cave and called out after Saul, saying: “MY LORD THE KING!” At this Saul looked behind him, and David proceeded TO BOW LOW WITH HIS FACE TO THE EARTH AND PROSTRATE HIMSELF. [9.] And David went on to say to Saul: “Why do you listen to the words of man, saying, ‘Look! David is seeking your hurt’? [10.] Here this day your eyes have seen how JEHOVAH gave you today into my hand in the cave; and someone said to kill you, but I felt sorry for you and said, ‘I shall not thrust out my hand against MY LORD, FOR HE IS THE ANOINTED OF JEHOVAH.’ [11.] And, my father, see, yes, see the skirt of your sleeveless coat in my hand, for when I cut off the skirt of your sleeveless coat I did not kill you. Know and see that there is no badness or revolt in my hand, and I have not sinned against you, while you are lying in wait for my soul to take it away. [12.] May JEHOVAH judge between me and you; and JEHOVAH must take vengeance for me from you, but my own hand will not come to be upon you. [13.] Just as the proverb of the ancients says, ‘From the wicked ones wickedness will go forth,’ but my own hand will not come to be upon you. [14.] After whom has THE KING OF ISRAEL gone out? After whom are you chasing? After a dead dog? After a single flea? [15.] And JEHOVAH must become judge, and he must judge between me and you, and he will see and he will conduct the legal case for me and judge me [to free me] from your hand...” - (“New World Translation of the Holy Scriptures,” With References, Rendered from the Original Languages by the New World Bible Translation Committee—Revised 1984.)

1 SAMUEL 26:17-20: “...καὶ [17.] ἐπέγνω Σαουλ τὴν φωνὴν τοῦ Δαυιδ καὶ εἶπεν Ἦ φωνή σου αὕτη, τέκνον Δαυιδ; καὶ εἶπεν Δαυιδ Δοῦλός σου, κύριε βασιλεῦ. [18.] καὶ εἶπεν Ἵνα τί τοῦτο καταδιώκει ὁ κύριός μου ὀπίσω τοῦ δούλου αὐτοῦ; ὅτι τί ἡμάρτηκα καὶ τί εὑρέθη ἐν ἐμοὶ ἀδίκημα; [19.] καὶ νῦν ἀκουσάτω δὴ ὁ κύριός μου ὁ βασιλεὺς τὸ ῥῆμα τοῦ δούλου αὐτοῦ· εἰ ὁ θεὸς ἐπισείει σε ἐπ᾽ ἐμέ, ὀσφρανθείη θυσίας σου· καὶ εἰ υἱοὶ ἀνθρώπων, ἐπικατάρατοι οὗτοι ἐνώπιον κυρίου, ὅτι ἐξέβαλόν με σήμερον μὴ ἐστηρίσθαι ἐν κληρονομίᾳ κυρίου λέγοντες Πορεύου δούλευε θεοῖς ἑτέροις. [20.] καὶ νῦν μὴ πέσοι τὸ αἷμά μου ἐπὶ τὴν γῆν ἐξ ἐναντίας προσώπου κυρίου, ὅτι ἐξελήλυθεν ὁ βασιλεὺς Ισραηλ ζητεῖν τὴν ψυχήν μου, καθὼς καταδιώκει ὁ νυκτικόραξ ἐν τοῖς ὄρεσιν...” - (Βασιλειῶν Aʹ, BIBLIOTHECA AUGUSTANA, Vetus Testamentum ca. 250/200 a.

1 SAMUEL 26:17-20: “...And [17.] Saul began to recognize the voice of David and to say: “Is this your voice, my son David?” To this David said: “It is my voice, MY LORD THE KING.” [18.] And he added: “Why is this that MY LORD is chasing after his servant, for what have I done, and what badness is there in my hand? [19.] And now let MY LORD the king, please, listen to the words of his servant: If it is JEHOVAH that has incited you against me, let him smell a grain offering. But if it is the sons of man, they are cursed before JEHOVAH, because they have driven me out today from feeling myself attached to the inheritance of JEHOVAH, saying, ‘Go, serve other gods!’ [20.] And now do not let my blood fall to the earth before the face of JEHOVAH; for THE KING OF ISRAEL has gone out to look for a single flea, just as one chases a partridge upon the mountains...” - (“New World Translation of the Holy Scriptures,” With References, Rendered from the Original Languages by the New World Bible Translation Committee—Revised 1984.)

1 SAMUEL 29:6-10: “...καὶ [6.] ἐκάλεσεν Αγχους τὸν Δαυιδ καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῷ Ζῇ κύριος ὅτι εὐθὴς σὺ καὶ ἀγαθὸς ἐν ὀφθαλμοῖς μου, καὶ ἡ ἔξοδός σου καὶ ἡ εἴσοδός σου μετ᾽ ἐμοῦ ἐν τῇ παρεμβολῇ, καὶ ὅτι οὐχ εὕρηκα κατὰ σοῦ κακίαν ἀφ᾽ ἧς ἡμέρας ἥκεις πρός με ἕως τῆς σήμερον ἡμέρας· καὶ ἐν ὀφθαλμοῖς τῶν σατραπῶν οὐκ ἀγαθὸς σύ· [7.] καὶ νῦν ἀνάστρεφε καὶ πορεύου εἰς εἰρήνην, καὶ οὐ μὴ ποιήσεις κακίαν ἐν ὀφθαλμοῖς τῶν σατραπῶν τῶν ἀλλοφύλων. [8.] καὶ εἶπεν Δαυιδ πρὸς Αγχους Τί πεποίηκά σοι καὶ τί εὗρες ἐν τῷ δούλῳ σου ἀφ᾽ ἧς ἡμέρας ἤμην ἐνώπιόν σου καὶ ἕως τῆς ἡμέρας ταύτης, ὅτι οὐ μὴ ἔλθω πολεμῆσαι τοὺς ἐχθροὺς τοῦ κυρίου μου τοῦ βασιλέως; [9.] καὶ ἀπεκρίθη Αγχους πρὸς Δαυιδ Οἶδα ὅτι ἀγαθὸς σὺ ἐν ὀφθαλμοῖς μου, ἀλλ᾽ οἱ σατράπαι τῶν ἀλλοφύλων λέγουσιν Οὐχ ἥξει μεθ᾽ ἡμῶν εἰς πόλεμον. [10.] καὶ νῦν ὄρθρισον τὸ πρωί, σὺ καὶ οἱ παῖδες τοῦ κυρίου σου οἱ ἥκοντες μετὰ σοῦ, καὶ πορεύεσθε εἰς τὸν τόπον, οὗ κατέστησα ὑμᾶς ἐκεῖ, καὶ λόγον λοιμὸν μὴ θῇς ἐν καρδίᾳ σου, ὅτι ἀγαθὸς σὺ ἐνώπιόν μου· καὶ ὀρθρίσατε ἐν τῇ ὁδῷ, καὶ φωτισάτω ὑμῖν, καὶ πορεύθητε...” - (Βασιλειῶν Aʹ, BIBLIOTHECA AUGUSTANA, Vetus Testamentum ca. 250/200 a. Chr. n.)

1 SAMUEL 29:6-10: “...Consequently [6.] A′chish called David and said to him: “AS JEHOVAH IS LIVING, you are upright, and your going out and your coming in with me in the camp has been good in my eyes; for I have not found badness in you from the day of your coming to me until this day. But in the eyes of THE AXIS LORDS you are not good. [7.] And now return and go in peace, that you may not do anything bad in the eyes of THE AXIS LORDS OF THE PHI·LIS′TINES.” [8.] However, David said to A′chish: “Why, what have I done, and what have you found in your servant from the day that I came to be before you until this day, that I should not come and actually fight against the enemies of MY LORD THE KING?” [9.] At this A′chish answered and said to David: “I well know that you have been good in my own eyes, LIKE AN ANGEL OF GOD. Only it is THE PRINCES OF THE PHI·LIS′TINES that have said, ‘Let him not go up with us into the battle.’ [10.] And now rise up early in the morning with the servants of YOUR LORD that came with you; and YOU men must rise up early in the morning when it has become light for YOU.

[8.] Finally David said to U·ri′ah: “Go down to your house and bathe your feet.” Accordingly U·ri′ah went out from THE KING’S house, and THE KING’S courtesy gift went out following him. [9.] However, U·ri′ah lay down at the entrance of THE KING’S house with all the other servants OF HIS LORD, and he did not go down to his own house. [10.] So they told David, saying: “U·ri′ah did not go down to his own house.” Upon that David said to U·ri′ah: “It is from a journey that you have come in, is it not? Why have you not gone down to your own house?” [11.] At this U·ri′ah said to David: “The Ark and Israel and Judah are dwelling in booths, and my lord Jo′ab and the servants OF MY LORD are camping on the face of the field, and I—shall I go into my own house to eat and drink and to lie down with my wife?

[8.] And I was willing to give you the house OF YOUR LORD and the wives OF YOUR LORD into your bosom, and to give you the house of Israel and of Judah. And if it were not enough, I was willing to add to you things like these as well as other things. [9.] Why did you despise THE WORD OF JEHOVAH by doing what is bad in his eyes? U·ri′ah the Hit′tite you struck down with the sword, and his wife you took as your wife, and him you killed by the sword of the sons of Am′mon. [10.] And now a sword will not depart from your own house to time indefinite, as a consequence of the fact that you despised me so that you took the wife of U·ri′ah the Hit′tite to become your wife.’ [11.] This is what JEHOVAH has said, ‘Here I am raising up against you calamity out of your own house; and I will take your wives under your own eyes and give them to your fellowman, and he will certainly lie down with your wives under the eyes of this sun.

[11.] καὶ εἶπεν Μνημονευσάτω δὴ ὁ βασιλεὺς τὸν κύριον θεὸν αὐτοῦ πληθυνθῆναι ἀγχιστέα τοῦ αἵματος τοῦ διαφθεῖραι καὶ οὐ μὴ ἐξάρωσιν τὸν υἱόν μου· καὶ εἶπεν Ζῇ κύριος, εἰ πεσεῖται ἀπὸ τῆς τριχὸς τοῦ υἱοῦ σου ἐπὶ τὴν γῆν. [12.] καὶ εἶπεν ἡ γυνή Λαλησάτω δὴ ἡ δούλη σου πρὸς τὸν κύριόν μου τὸν βασιλέα ῥῆμα· καὶ εἶπεν Λάλησον. [13.] καὶ εἶπεν ἡ γυνή Ἵνα τί ἐλογίσω τοιοῦτο ἐπὶ λαὸν θεοῦ; ἦ ἐκ στόματος τοῦ βασιλέως ὁ λόγος οὗτος ὡς πλημμέλεια τοῦ μὴ ἐπιστρέψαι τὸν βασιλέα τὸν ἐξωσμένον αὐτοῦ. [14.] ὅτι θανάτῳ ἀποθανούμεθα, καὶ ὥσπερ τὸ ὕδωρ τὸ καταφερόμενον ἐπὶ τῆς γῆς, ὃ οὐ συναχθήσεται· καὶ λήμψεται ὁ θεὸς ψυχήν, καὶ λογιζόμενος τοῦ ἐξῶσαι ἀπ᾽ αὐτοῦ ἐξωσμένον. [15.] καὶ νῦν ὃ ἦλθον λαλῆσαι πρὸς τὸν βασιλέα τὸν κύριόν μου τὸ ῥῆμα τοῦτο, ὅτι ὄψεταί με ὁ λαός, καὶ ἐρεῖ ἡ δούλη σου Λαλησάτω δὴ πρὸς τὸν βασιλέα, εἴ πως ποιήσει ὁ βασιλεὺς τὸ ῥῆμα τῆς δούλης αὐτοῦ· [16.] ὅτι ἀκούσει ὁ βασιλεὺς ῥύσασθαι τὴν δούλην αὐτοῦ ἐκ χειρὸς τοῦ ἀνδρὸς τοῦ ζητοῦντος ἐξᾶραί με καὶ τὸν υἱόν μου ἀπὸ κληρονομίας θεοῦ. [17.] καὶ εἶπεν ἡ γυνή Εἴη δὴ ὁ λόγος τοῦ κυρίου μου τοῦ βασιλέως εἰς θυσίαν, ὅτι καθὼς ἄγγελος θεοῦ οὕτως ὁ κύριός μου ὁ βασιλεὺς τοῦ ἀκούειν τὸ ἀγαθὸν καὶ τὸ πονηρόν, καὶ κύριος ὁ θεός σου ἔσται μετὰ σοῦ. [18.] καὶ ἀπεκρίθη ὁ βασιλεὺς καὶ εἶπεν πρὸς τὴν γυναῖκα Μὴ δὴ κρύψῃς ἀπ᾽ ἐμοῦ ῥῆμα, ὃ ἐγὼ ἐπερωτῶ σε. καὶ εἶπεν ἡ γυνή Λαλησάτω δὴ ὁ κύριός μου ὁ βασιλεύς.

[21.] καὶ εἶπεν ὁ βασιλεὺς πρὸς Ιωαβ Ἰδοὺ δὴ ἐποίησά σοι κατὰ τὸν λόγον σου τοῦτον· πορεύου ἐπίστρεψον τὸ παιδάριον τὸν Αβεσσαλωμ. [22.] καὶ ἔπεσεν Ιωαβ ἐπὶ πρόσωπον αὐτοῦ ἐπὶ τὴν γῆν καὶ προσεκύνησεν καὶ εὐλόγησεν τὸν βασιλέα, καὶ εἶπεν Ιωαβ Σήμερον ἔγνω ὁ δοῦλός σου ὅτι εὗρον χάριν ἐν ὀφθαλμοῖς σου, κύριέ μου βασιλεῦ, ὅτι ἐποίησεν ὁ κύριός μου ὁ βασιλεὺς τὸν λόγον τοῦ δούλου αὐτοῦ. [23.] καὶ ἀνέστη Ιωαβ καὶ ἐπορεύθη εἰς Γεδσουρ καὶ ἤγαγεν τὸν Αβεσσαλωμ εἰς Ιερουσαλημ.

2 SAMUEL 14:8-24: “...Then [8.] THE KING said to the woman: “Go to your house, and I myself shall give command regarding you.” [9.] At this the Te·ko′ite woman said to THE KING: “Upon me, O MY LORD THE KING, be the error, and also upon the house of my father, while THE KING and his throne are innocent.” [10.] And THE KING went on to say: “If there is anyone speaking to you, you must also bring him to me, and he will never hurt you again.” [11.] But she said: “Let THE KING, please, remember JEHOVAH YOUR GOD, that the avenger of blood may not be continually causing ruin and that they may not annihilate my son.” To this he said: “AS JEHOVAH IS LIVING, not a single hair of your son will fall to the earth.” [12.] The woman now said: “Let your maidservant, please, speak a word to MY LORD THE KING.” So he said: “Speak!” [13.] And the woman went on to say: “Why, then, have you reasoned like this against the people of God? As THE KING is speaking this word he is like one that is guilty, in that THE KING does not bring back his own banished one. [14.] For we shall die without fail and be like waters that are being poured down to the earth, which cannot be gathered. But God will not take away a soul, and he has thought out reasons why the one banished should not be banished from him. [15.] And now that I have come in to speak this word to THE KING MY LORD, it is because the people made me afraid. So your maidservant said, ‘Let me speak, please, to the king. Perhaps the king will act on the word of his slave girl. [16.] Because THE KING proceeded to listen so as to deliver his slave girl out of the palm of the man [seeking] to annihilate me and my lone son from the inheritance given by God,’ [17.] then your maidservant said, ‘Let the word of MY LORD THE KING serve, please, to give rest.’ FOR JUST LIKE AN ANGEL OF THE [TRUE] GOD IS THE WAY MY LORD THE KING IS, TO DISTINGUISH WHAT IS GOOD AND WHAT IS BAD, AND MAY JEHOVAH YOUR GOD HIMSELF PROVE TO BE WITH YOU.” [18.] THE KING now answered and said to the woman: “Do not, please, hide from me a thing about which I am asking you.” To this the woman said: “Let MY LORD THE KING speak, please.” [19.] And THE KING went on to say: “Is the hand of Jo′ab with you in all this?” Then the woman answered and said: “AS YOUR SOUL IS LIVING, O MY LORD THE KING, no man can go to the right or go to the left from all that MY LORD THE KING has spoken; for it was your servant Jo′ab that commanded me, and he it was that put in the mouth of your maidservant all these words. [20.] For the sake of altering the face of the matter your servant Jo′ab has done this thing, but MY LORD IS WISE AS WITH THE WISDOM OF THE ANGEL OF THE [TRUE] GOD SO AS TO KNOW ALL THAT IS IN THE EARTH.” [21.] Subsequently THE KING said to Jo′ab: “Here, now, I shall certainly do this thing. So go, bring the young man Ab′sa·lom back.” [22.] At this JO′AB FELL UPON HIS FACE TO THE EARTH AND PROSTRATED HIMSELF AND BLESSED THE KING; and Jo′ab went on to say: “Today your servant does know that I have found favor in your eyes, O MY LORD THE KING, because THE KING has acted on the word of his servant.” [23.] With that Jo′ab rose up and went to Gesh′ur and brought Ab′sa·lom to Jerusalem. [24.] However, the king said: “Let him turn toward his own house, but my face he may not see.” So Ab′sa·lom turned toward his own house, and the face of THE KING he did not see...” - (“New World Translation of the Holy Scriptures,” With References, Rendered from the Original Languages by the New World Bible Translation Committee—Revised 1984.)

2 SAMUEL 15:13-22: “...In [13.] time an informer came to David, saying: “The heart of the men of Israel has come to be behind Ab′sa·lom.” [14.] At once David said to all his servants that were with him in Jerusalem: “Get up, and let us run away; for there will prove to be no escaping for us because of Ab′sa·lom! Go hurriedly, for fear he may hurry up and actually catch up with us and bring down upon us what is bad and strike the city with the edge of the sword!” [15.] At this THE KING’S servants said to THE KING: “According to all that MY LORD THE KING may choose, here are your servants.” [16.] So THE KING went out with all his household at his feet, and THE KING left ten women, concubines, to take care of the house. [17.] And the king continued on his way out with all the people at his feet; and they came to a stop at Beth-mer′hak. [18.] And all his servants were crossing at his side; and all the Cher′e·thites and all the Pel′e·thites and all the Git′tites, six hundred men that had followed him from Gath, were crossing before THE KING’S face. [19.] Then THE KING said to It′tai the Git′tite: “Why should you yourself also go with us? Go back and dwell with THE KING; for you are a foreigner and, besides, you are an exile from your place. [20.] Yesterday was when you came and today shall I make you wander with us, to go when I am going wherever I am going? Go back and take your brothers back with you, [and may Jehovah exercise toward you] loving-kindness and trustworthiness!” [21.] But It′tai answered THE KING and said: “AS JEHOVAH IS LIVING AND AS MY LORD THE KING IS LIVING, in the place where MY LORD THE KING may come to be, whether for death or for life, there is where your servant will come to be!” [22.] At that David said to It′tai: “Go and cross over.” So It′tai the Git′tite crossed over, and also all his men and all the little ones that were with him...” - (“New World Translation of the Holy Scriptures,” With References, Rendered from the Original Languages by the New World Bible Translation Committee—Revised 1984.)

[2.] Then THE KING said to Zi′ba: “What do these things mean on your part?” To this Zi′ba said: “The asses are for the household of THE KING to ride, and the bread and the load of summer fruit are for the young men to eat, and the wine is for the one tired out in the wilderness to drink.” [3.] THE KING now said: “And where is THE SON OF YOUR MASTER?” At this Zi′ba said to THE KING: “There he is dwelling in Jerusalem; for he said, ‘Today the house of Israel will give back to me THE ROYAL RULE OF MY FATHER.’” [4.] THE KING then said to Zi′ba: “Look!

2 SAMUEL 19:24-37: “....As [24.] for Me·phib′o·sheth the grandson of Saul, he came down to meet THE KING; and he had not attended to his feet nor had he attended to his mustache nor had he washed his garments from the day that THE KING went away until the day that he came in peace. [25.] And it came about that, when he came to Jerusalem to meet THE KING, then THE KING said to him: “Why did you not go with me, Me·phib′o·sheth?” [26.] To this he said: “MY LORD THE KING, it was my servant that tricked me. For your servant had said, ‘Let me saddle the female ass for me that I may ride upon it and go with THE KING,’ for your servant is lame. [27.] So he slandered your servant to MY LORD THE KING. But MY LORD THE KING IS AS AN ANGEL OF THE [TRUE] GOD, and so do what is good in your eyes. [28.] For all the household of my father would have become nothing but doomed to death to MY LORD THE KING, and yet you placed your servant among those eating at your table. So what do I still have as a just claim even for crying out further to THE KING?” [29.] However, THE KING said to him: “Why do you yet keep speaking your words? I do say, You and Zi′ba should share in the field.” [30.] At this Me·phib′o·sheth said to THE KING: “Let him even take the whole, now that MY LORD THE KING has come in peace to his house.” [31.] And Bar·zil′lai the Gil′e·ad·ite himself came down from Ro·ge′lim that he might pass on to the Jordan with THE KING so as to escort him to the Jordan. [32.] And Bar·zil′lai was very old, being eighty years of age; and he himself supplied THE KING with food while he was dwelling in Ma·ha·na′im, for he was a very great man. [33.] So THE KING said to Bar·zil′lai: “You yourself cross over with me, and I shall certainly supply you with food with me in Jerusalem.” [34.] But Bar·zil′lai said to THE KING: “What are the days of the years of my life like, that I should go up with THE KING to Jerusalem? [35.] I am eighty years old today. Could I discern between good and bad, or could your servant taste what I ate and what I drank, or could I listen anymore to the voice of male and female singers? So why should your servant become a burden anymore to MY LORD THE KING? [36.] For it is just a little way that your servant could bring THE KING along to the Jordan, and why should THE KING repay me with this reward? [37.] Let your servant return, please, and let me die in my city close by the burial place of my father and my mother. But here is your servant Chim′ham. Let him cross over with MY LORD THE KING; and you do to him what is good in your eyes...” - (“New World Translation of the Holy Scriptures,” With References, Rendered from the Original Languages by the New World Bible Translation Committee—Revised 1984.)

[2.] καὶ εἶπεν ὁ βασιλεὺς πρὸς Ιωαβ ἄρχοντα τῆς ἰσχύος τὸν μετ᾽ αὐτοῦ Δίελθε δὴ πάσας φυλὰς Ισραηλ ἀπὸ Δαν καὶ ἕως Βηρσαβεε καὶ ἐπίσκεψαι τὸν λαόν, καὶ γνώσομαι τὸν ἀριθμὸν τοῦ λαοῦ. [3.] καὶ εἶπεν Ιωαβ πρὸς τὸν βασιλέα Καὶ προσθείη κύριος ὁ θεός σου πρὸς τὸν λαὸν ὥσπερ αὐτοὺς καὶ ὥσπερ αὐτοὺς ἑκατονταπλασίονα, καὶ ὀφθαλμοὶ τοῦ κυρίου μου τοῦ βασιλέως ὁρῶντες· καὶ ὁ κύριός μου ὁ βασιλεὺς ἵνα τί βούλεται ἐν τῷ λόγῳ τούτῳ...” - (Βασιλειῶν Βʹ, BIBLIOTHECA AUGUSTANA, Vetus Testamentum, ca. 250/200 a.

[22.] καὶ εἶπεν Ορνα πρὸς Δαυιδ Λαβέτω καὶ ἀνενεγκέτω ὁ κύριός μου ὁ βασιλεὺς τῷ κυρίῳ τὸ ἀγαθὸν ἐν ὀφθαλμοῖς αὐτοῦ· ἰδοὺ οἱ βόες εἰς ὁλοκαύτωμα, καὶ οἱ τροχοὶ καὶ τὰ σκεύη τῶν βοῶν εἰς ξύλα.

2 SAMUEL 24:18-23: “...Later [18.] Gad came in to David on that day and said to him: “Go up, set up for Jehovah an altar on the threshing floor of A·rau′nah the Jeb′u·site.” [19.] And David began to go up in accord with the word of Gad, according to what Jehovah had commanded. [20.] When A·rau′nah looked down and saw THE KING and his servants passing along toward him, A·rau′nah at once went out and BOWED DOWN TO THE KING WITH HIS FACE TO THE EARTH. [21.] Then A·rau′nah said: “Why has MY LORD THE KING come to his servant?” At that David said: “To buy from you the threshing floor for building an altar to Jehovah, that the scourge may be halted from upon the people.” [22.] But A·rau′nah said to David: “Let MY LORD THE KING take it and offer up what is good in his eyes. See the cattle for the burnt offering and the threshing sledge and the implements of the cattle for the wood. [23.] Everything A·rau′nah, O king, does give to THE KING.” And A·rau′nah went on to say to THE KING: “May JEHOVAH YOUR GOD show pleasure in you...” - (“New World Translation of the Holy Scriptures,” With References, Rendered from the Original Languages by the New World Bible Translation Committee—Revised 1984.)

1 KINGS 1:9-37: “...Eventually [9.] Ad·o·ni′jah held a sacrifice of sheep and cattle and fatlings close by the stone of Zo′he·leth, which is beside En-ro′gel, and he proceeded to invite all his brothers THE KING’S sons and all the men of Judah THE KING’S servants; [10.] and Nathan the prophet and Be·nai′ah and the mighty men and Sol′o·mon his brother he did not invite. [11.] Nathan now said to Bath-she′ba, Sol′o·mon’s mother: “Have you not heard that Ad·o·ni′jah the son of Hag′gith has become KING, and OUR LORD DAVID does not know of it at all? [12.] So now come, let me, please, solemnly counsel you. And provide escape for your own soul and for the soul of your son Sol′o·mon. [13.] Go and enter in to KING DAVID, and you must say to him, ‘Was it not you, MY LORD THE KING, that swore to your slave girl, saying: “Sol′o·mon your son is the one that will become KING after me, and he is the one that will sit upon my throne”? So why has Ad·o·ni′jah become KING?’ [14.] Look! While you are yet speaking there with THE KING, then I myself shall come in after you, and I shall certainly confirm your words.” [15.] Accordingly Bath-she′ba went in to THE KING in the interior room, and THE KING was very old, and Ab′i·shag the Shu′nam·mite was waiting upon THE KING. [16.] Then Bath-she′ba BOWED LOW AND PROSTRATED HERSELF TO THE KING, upon which THE KING said: “What do you have [to ask]?” [17.] At this she said to him: “MY LORD, it was you that swore by JEHOVAH YOUR GOD to your slave girl, ‘Sol′o·mon your son is the one that will become KING after me, and he is the one that will sit upon my throne.’ [18.] And now, look! Ad·o·ni′jah himself has become KING, and now MY LORD THE KING himself does not know of it at all. [19.] So he sacrificed bulls and fatlings and sheep in great quantity and invited all the sons of THE KING and A·bi′a·thar the priest and Jo′ab the chief of the army; but Sol′o·mon your servant he has not invited. [20.] And you MY LORD THE KING—the eyes of all Israel are upon you, to tell them who is going to sit upon the throne of MY LORD THE KING after him. [21.] And it will certainly occur that as soon as MY LORD THE KING lies down with his forefathers, I myself and also my son Sol′o·mon shall certainly become offenders.” [22.] And, look! while she was yet speaking with THE KING, Nathan the prophet himself came in. [23.] At once they told THE KING, saying: “Here is Nathan the prophet!” After that HE CAME IN BEFORE THE KING AND PROSTRATED HIMSELF TO THE KING WITH HIS FACE TO THE EARTH. [24.] Then Nathan said: “MY LORD THE KING, did you yourself say, ‘Ad·o·ni′jah is the one that will become KING after me, and he is the one that will sit upon my throne’? [25.] For he has today gone down that he might sacrifice bulls and fatlings and sheep in great quantity and might invite all the sons of THE KING and the chiefs of the army and A·bi′a·thar the priest; and there they are eating and drinking before him and they keep saying, ‘LET KING AD·O·NI′JAH LIVE!’ [26.] But as for me your servant, me and Za′dok the priest and Be·nai′ah the son of Je·hoi′a·da and Sol′o·mon your servant he has not invited. [27.] If it is from MY LORD THE KING that this thing has been brought about, then you have not caused your servant to know who should sit upon THE THRONE OF MY LORD THE KING after him.” [28.] KING DAVID now answered and said: “YOU men, call Bath-she′ba for me.” At that she came in before THE KING and stood before THE KING. [29.] And THE KING proceeded to swear and say: “AS JEHOVAH IS LIVING who redeemed my soul out of all distress, [30.] just as I have sworn to you by Jehovah the God of Israel, saying, ‘Sol′o·mon your son is the one that will become KING after me, and he is the one that will sit upon my throne in place of me!’ that is the way I shall do this day.” [31.] THEN BATH-SHE′BA BOWED LOW WITH HER FACE TO THE EARTH AND PROSTRATED HERSELF TO THE KING AND SAID: “LET MY LORD KING DAVID LIVE TO TIME INDEFINITE![32.] Immediately KING DAVID said: “YOU men, call for me Za′dok the priest and Nathan the prophet and Be·nai′ah the son of Je·hoi′a·da.” So they came in before THE KING. [33.] And THE KING went on to say to them: “Take with YOU the servants of YOUR LORD, and YOU must make Sol′o·mon my son ride upon the she-mule that belongs to me and lead him down to Gi′hon. [34.] And Za′dok the priest and Nathan the prophet must ANOINT HIM THERE AS KING OVER ISRAEL; and YOU must blow the horn and say, ‘LET KING SOL′O·MON LIVE!’ [35.] And YOU must come up following him, and he must come in and sit upon my throne; and he himself will be KING in place of me, and him I SHALL HAVE TO COMMISSION TO BECOME LEADER OVER ISRAEL AND OVER JUDAH.” [36.] At once Be·nai′ah the son of Je·hoi′a·da answered THE KING and said: “AMEN! THUS MAY JEHOVAH THE GOD OF MY LORD THE KING SAY. [37.] Just as JEHOVAH PROVED TO BE WITH MY LORD THE KING, SO LET HIM PROVE TO BE WITH SOL′O·MON, and may he make his throne greater than the throne of MY LORD KING DAVID...” - (“New World Translation of the Holy Scriptures,” With References, Rendered from the Original Languages by the New World Bible Translation Committee—Revised 1984.)

1 KINGS 1:41-48:...And [41.] Ad·o·ni′jah and all the ones invited that were with him got to hear it, when they themselves had finished eating. When Jo′ab got to hear the sound of the horn, he at once said: “What does the noise of the town in an uproar mean?” [42.] While he was yet speaking, why, here Jon′a·than the son of A·bi′a·thar the priest came. Then Ad·o·ni′jah said: “Come on in, for you are a valiant man, and you bring good news.” [43.] But Jon′a·than answered and said to Ad·o·ni′jah: “No! OUR LORD KING DAVID himself has made Sol′o·mon KING. [44.] So THE KING sent with him Za′dok the priest and Nathan the prophet and Be·nai′ah the son of Je·hoi′a·da and the Cher′e·thites and the Pel′e·thites, and they made him ride upon the she-mule of THE KING. [45.] Then Za′dok the priest and Nathan the prophet ANOINTED HIM AS KING in Gi′hon; after which they came up from there rejoicing, and the town is in an uproar. That was the noise that YOU men heard. [46.] And, besides, Sol′o·mon has sat down upon THE THRONE OF THE KINGSHIP. [47.] And, another thing, the servants of THE KING have come in to wish OUR LORD KING DAVID well, saying, ‘May your God make Sol′o·mon’s name more splendid than your name, and may he make his throne greater than your throne!’ AT THAT THE KING BOWED DOWN UPON THE BED. [48.] And too this is what THE KING said, ‘Blessed be Jehovah the God of Israel, who has today given one to sit upon my throne, with my own eyes seeing it!...” - (“New World Translation of the Holy Scriptures,” With References, Rendered from the Original Languages by the New World Bible Translation Committee—Revised 1984.)

1 KINGS 3:16-27: “...Τότε [16.] ὤφθησαν δύο γυναῖκες πόρναι τῷ βασιλεῖ καὶ ἔστησαν ἐνώπιον αὐτοῦ.

1 KINGS 3:16-27: “...At [16.] that time two women, prostitutes, got to come in to THE KING and stand before him. [17.] Then the one woman said: “Excuse me, MY LORD, I and this woman are dwelling in one house, so that I gave birth close by her in the house. [18.] And it came about on the third day after I gave birth, this woman also proceeded to give birth. And we were together. There was no stranger with us in the house, no one but the two of us in the house. [19.] Later the son of this woman died at night, because she lay upon him. [20.] So she got up in the middle of the night and took my son from beside me while your slave girl herself was asleep and laid him in her own bosom, and her dead son she laid in my bosom. [21.] When I got up in the morning to nurse my son, why, there he was dead. So I examined him closely in the morning, and, look! he did not prove to be my son that I had borne.” [22.] But the other woman said: “No, but my son is the living one and your son is the dead one!” All the while this woman was saying: “No, but your son is the dead one and my son is the living one.” And they kept on speaking before THE KING. [23.] Finally the king said: “This one is saying, ‘This is my son, the living one, and your son is the dead one!’ and that one is saying, ‘No, but your son is the dead one and my son is the living one!’” [24.] And THE KING went on to say: “YOU men, get me a sword.” So they brought the sword before THE KING. [25.] And THE KING proceeded to say: “YOU men, sever the living child in two and give the one half to the one woman and the other half to the other.” [26.] At once the woman whose son was the living one said to THE KING (for her inward emotions were excited toward her son, so that she said): “Excuse me, MY LORD! YOU men, give her the living child. Do not by any means put him to death.” All the while this other woman was saying: “Neither mine nor yours will he become. YOU men, do the severing!” [27.] At that THE KING answered and said: “YOU men, give her the living child, and YOU must by no means put him to death. She is his mother...” - (“New World Translation of the Holy Scriptures,” With References, Rendered from the Original Languages by the New World Bible Translation Committee—Revised 1984.)

And he went on to say to him: “This is what Ben-ha′dad has said, [3.] ‘Your silver and your gold are mine, and your wives and your sons, the best looking, are mine.’” [4.] To this THE KING OF ISRAEL answered and said: “According to your word, MY LORD THE KING, yours I am with all that belongs to me.” [5.] Later the messengers came back and said: “This is what Ben-ha′dad has said, ‘I sent to you, saying: “Your silver and your gold and your wives and your sons you will give me. [6.] But about this time tomorrow I shall send my servants to you, and they must carefully search your house and the houses of your servants; and it must occur that everything desirable to your eyes they will put in their hand, and they must take it away.”’” [7.] At that THE KING OF ISRAEL called all the older men of the land and said: “Take note, please, and see that it is calamity that this one is seeking; for he sent to me for my wives and my sons and my silver and my gold, and I did not hold them back from him.” [8.] Then all the older men and all the people said to him: “Do not obey, and you should not consent.” [9.] So he said to the messengers of Ben-ha′dad: “Say to MY LORD THE KING, ‘All that you sent to your servant at first I shall do; but this thing I am not able to do.’” With that the messengers went off and brought word back to him...” - (“New World Translation of the Holy Scriptures,” With References, Rendered from the Original Languages by the New World Bible Translation Committee—Revised 1984.)

2ND KINGS 6:20-33: “...And [20.] it came about that as soon as they arrived at Sa·mar′i·a, E·li′sha then said: “O Jehovah, open the eyes of these that they may see.” Immediately Jehovah opened their eyes, and they got to see; and here they were in the middle of Sa·mar′i·a. [21.] THE KING OF ISRAEL now said to E·li′sha as soon as he saw them: “Shall I strike [them] down, shall I strike [them] down, my father?” [22.] But he said: “You must not strike [them] down. Are those whom you have taken captive with your sword and with your bow the ones that you are striking down? Set bread and water before them that they may eat and drink and go to THEIR LORD.” [23.] Accordingly he spread a great feast for them; and they began to eat and drink, after which he sent them away and they went to THEIR LORD. And not once did the marauding bands of the Syrians come again into the land of Israel. [24.] And it came about afterward that Ben-ha′dad THE KING OF SYRIA proceeded to collect all his camp together and to go up and besiege Sa·mar′i·a. [25.] In time a great famine arose in Sa·mar′i·a, and, look! they were besieging it until an ass’s head got to be worth eighty silver pieces, and the fourth of a cab measure of dove’s dung was worth five silver pieces. [26.] And it came about as THE KING OF ISRAEL was passing along upon the wall that a certain woman cried out to him, saying: “Do save, O MY LORD THE KING![27.] To this he said: “If JEHOVAH does not save you, from what [source] shall I save you? either from the threshing floor or from the wine or oil press?” [28.] And THE KING went on to say to her: “What is the matter with you?” So she said: “This very woman said to me, ‘Give your son that we may eat him today, and my own son we shall eat tomorrow.’ [29.] Accordingly we boiled my son and ate him. Then I said to her on the next day, ‘Give your son that we may eat him.’ But she hid her son.” [30.] And it came about that as soon as THE KING heard the woman’s words, he immediately ripped his garments apart; and as he was passing along upon the wall, the people got to see, and, look! sackcloth was underneath upon his flesh. [31.] And he went on to say: “So may God do to me, and so may he add to it, if the head of E·li′sha the son of Sha′phat continues standing upon him today!” [32.] And E·li′sha was sitting in his own house, and the older men were sitting with him, when he sent a man from before him. Before the messenger could come in to him, he himself said to the older men: “Have YOU seen how this son of a murderer has sent to take off my head? See to it: as soon as the messenger comes, close the door, and YOU must press him back with the door. Is there not the sound of the feet of HIS LORD behind him?” [33.] While he was yet speaking with them, here was the messenger coming down to him, and [the king] proceeded to say: “Here this is the calamity from JEHOVAH. Why should I wait any longer for JEHOVAH?...” - (“New World Translation of the Holy Scriptures,” With References, Rendered from the Original Languages by the New World Bible Translation Committee—Revised 1984.)

2ND KINGS 8:3-13: “...And [3.] it came about at the end of seven years that the woman proceeded to return from the land of the Phi·lis′tines and go forth to cry out to THE KING for her house and for her field. [4.] Now THE KING was speaking to Ge·ha′zi the attendant of the man of the [true] God, saying: “Do relate to me, please, all the great things that E·li′sha has done.” [5.] And it came about that as he was relating to THE KING how he had revived the dead one, why, here the woman whose son he had revived was crying out to THE KING for her house and for her field. At once Ge·ha′zi said: “MY LORD THE KING, this is the woman, and this is her son whom E·li′sha revived.” [6.] At that THE KING asked the woman, and she went on to relate to him the story. Then THE KING gave her a court official, saying: “Return all that belongs to her and all the products of the field from the day of her leaving the land until now.” [7.] And E·li′sha proceeded to come to Damascus; and BEN-HA′DAD THE KING OF SYRIA was sick. Accordingly the report was made to him, saying: “The man of the [true] God has come as far as here.” [8.] At that THE KING said to Haz′a·el: “Take a gift in your hand and go and meet the man of the [true] God, and you must inquire of JEHOVAH through him, saying, ‘Shall I revive from this sickness?’” [9.] So Haz′a·el went to meet him and took a gift in his hand, even every sort of good thing of Damascus, the load of forty camels, and came and stood before him and said: “Your son, BEN-HA′DAD, THE KING OF SYRIA, has sent me to you, saying, ‘Shall I revive from this sickness?’” [10.] Then E·li′sha said to him: “Go, say to him, ‘You will positively revive,’ and JEHOVAH has shown me that he will positively die.” [11.] And he kept a fixed look and kept it set to the point of embarrassment. Then the man of the [true] God gave way to weeping. [12.] At this Haz′a·el said: “Why is MY LORD weeping?” To this he said: “Because I well know what injury you will do to the sons of Israel. Their fortified places you will consign to the fire, and their choice men you will kill with the sword, and their children you will dash to pieces, and their pregnant women you will rip up.” [13.] Upon that Haz′a·el said: “What is your servant, [who is a mere] dog, that he could do this great thing?” But E·li′sha said: “JEHOVAH has shown me you AS KING OVER SYRIA...” - (“New World Translation of the Holy Scriptures,” With References, Rendered from the Original Languages by the New World Bible Translation Committee—Revised 1984.)

[13.] And now I do send a skillful man, experienced in understanding, belonging to Hi′ram-a′bi, [14.] the son of a woman of the sons of Dan but whose father was a man of Tyre, experienced, to work in gold and in silver, in copper, in iron, in stones and in timbers, in wool dyed reddish purple, in blue thread and in fine fabric and in crimson and at cutting every sort of engraving and at designing every sort of device that may be given to him along with your own skillful men and the skillful men of MY LORD DAVID YOUR FATHER.

You have trusted in the support of this crushed reed, in Egypt, which, if a man should brace himself upon it, would certainly enter into his palm and pierce it. That is the way PHAR′AOH THE KING OF EGYPT is to all those putting their trust in him. [7.] And in case you should say to me, ‘It is JEHOVAH OUR GOD in whom we have trusted,’ is he not the one whose high places and whose altars Hez·e·ki′ah has removed, while he says to Judah and Jerusalem, ‘Before this altar YOU should bow down’?”’ [8.] Now, then, make a wager, please, with MY LORD THE KING OF AS·SYR′I·A, and let me give you two thousand horses [to see] whether you are able, on your part, to put riders upon them. [9.] How, then, could you turn back the face of one governor of the smallest servants of my lord, while you, for your part, put your trust in Egypt for chariots and for horsemen?
