1 Samuel - EN/PT

1 Samuel 1

1 Now there was a certain man of Ramathaim, a Zuphite of the hill-country of Ephraim, named Elkanah; he was the son of Jeroham, the son of Elihu, the son of Tohu, the son of Zuph, an Ephraimite:
1 Houve um homem de Ramataim-Zofim, da montanha de Efraim, cujo nome era Elcana, filho de Jeroão, filho de Eliú, filho de Toú, filho de Zufe, efrateu.

2 And he had two wives, one named Hannah and the other Peninnah: and Peninnah was the mother of children, but Hannah had no children.
2 E este tinha duas mulheres: o nome de uma era Ana, e o nome da outra, Penina; Penina tinha filhos, porém Ana não tinha filhos.

3 Now this man went up from his town every year to give worship and to make offerings to the Lord of armies in Shiloh. And the two sons of Eli, Hophni and Phinehas, the priests of the Lord, were there.
3 Subia, pois, este homem da sua cidade de ano em ano a adorar e a sacrificar ao SENHOR dos Exércitos, em Siló; e estavam ali os sacerdotes em Siló; e estavam ali os sacerdotes do SENHOR, Hofni e Finéias, os dois filhos de Eli.

4 And when the day came for Elkanah to make his offering, he gave to Peninnah his wife, and to all her sons and daughters, their part of the feast:
4 E sucedeu que, no dia em que Elcana sacrificava, dava ele porções do sacrifício a Penina, sua mulher, e a todos os seus filhos, e a todas as suas filhas.

5 But to Hannah he gave one part, though Hannah was very dear to him, but the Lord had not let her have children.
5 Porém a Ana dava uma parte excelente, porquanto ele amava Ana; porém o SENHOR lhe tinha cerrado a madre.

6 And the other wife did everything possible to make her unhappy, because the Lord had not let her have children;
6 E a sua competidora excessivamente a irritava para a embravecer, porquanto o SENHOR lhe tinha cerrado a madre.

7 And year by year, whenever she went up to the house of the Lord, she kept on attacking her, so that Hannah gave herself up to weeping and would take no food.
7 E assim o fazia ele de ano em ano; quando ela subia à Casa do SENHOR, assim a outra a irritava; pelo que chorava e não comia.

8 Then her husband Elkanah said to her, Hannah, why are you weeping? and why are you taking no food? why is your heart troubled? am I not more to you than ten sons?
8 Então, Elcana, seu marido, lhe disse: Ana, por que choras? E por que não comes? E por que está mal o teu coração? Não te sou eu melhor do que dez filhos?

9 So after they had taken food and wine in the guest room, Hannah got up. Now Eli the priest was seated by the pillars of the doorway of the Temple of the Lord.
9 Então, Ana se levantou, depois que comeram e beberam em Siló; e Eli, o sacerdote, estava assentado numa cadeira, junto a um pilar do templo do SENHOR.

10 And with grief in her soul, weeping bitterly, she made her prayer to the Lord.
10 Ela, pois, com amargura de alma, orou ao SENHOR e chorou abundantemente.

11 And she made an oath, and said, O Lord of armies, if you will truly take note of the sorrow of your servant, not turning away from me but keeping me in mind, and will give me a man-child, then I will give him to the Lord all the days of his life, and his hair will never be cut.
11 E votou um voto, dizendo: SENHOR dos Exércitos! Se benignamente atentares para a aflição da tua serva, e de mim te lembrares, e da tua serva te não esqueceres, mas à tua serva deres um filho varão, ao SENHOR o darei por todos os dias da sua vida, e sobre a sua cabeça não passará navalha.

12 Now while she was a long time in prayer before the Lord, Eli was watching her mouth.
12 E sucedeu que, perseverando ela em orar perante o SENHOR, Eli fez atenção à sua boca,

13 For Hannah’s prayer came from her heart, and though her lips were moving she made no sound: so it seemed to Eli that she was overcome with wine.
13 porquanto Ana, no seu coração, falava, e só se moviam os seus lábios, porém não se ouvia a sua voz; pelo que Eli a teve por embriagada.

14 And Eli said to her, How long are you going to be the worse for drink? Put away the effects of your wine from you.
14 E disse-lhe Eli: Até quando estarás tu embriagada? Aparta de ti o teu vinho.

15 And Hannah, answering him, said, No, my lord, I am a woman whose spirit is broken with sorrow: I have not taken wine or strong drink, but I have been opening my heart before the Lord.
15 Porém Ana respondeu e disse: Não, senhor meu, eu sou uma mulher atribulada de espírito; nem vinho nem bebida forte tenho bebido; porém tenho derramado a minha alma perante o SENHOR.

16 Do not take your servant to be a good-for-nothing woman: for my words have come from my stored-up sorrow and pain.
16 Não tenhas, pois, a tua serva por filha de Belial; porque da multidão dos meus cuidados e do meu desgosto tenho falado até agora.

17 Then Eli said to her, Go in peace: and may the God of Israel give you an answer to the prayer you have made to him.
17 Então, respondeu Eli e disse: Vai em paz, e o Deus de Israel te conceda a tua petição que lhe pediste.

18 And she said, May your servant have grace in your eyes. So the woman went away, and took part in the feast, and her face was no longer sad.
18 E disse ela: Ache a tua serva graça em teus olhos. Assim, a mulher se foi seu caminho e comeu, e o seu semblante já não era triste.

19 And early in the morning they got up, and after worshipping before the Lord they went back to Ramah, to their house: and Elkanah had connection with his wife; and the Lord kept her in mind.
19 E levantaram-se de madrugada, e adoraram perante o SENHOR, e voltaram, e vieram à sua casa, a Ramá. Elcana conheceu a Ana, sua mulher, e o SENHOR se lembrou dela.

20 Now the time came when Hannah, being with child, gave birth to a son; and she gave him the name Samuel, Because, she said, I made a prayer to the Lord for him.
20 E sucedeu que, passado algum tempo, Ana concebeu, e teve um filho, e chamou o seu nome Samuel, porque, dizia ela, o tenho pedido ao SENHOR.

21 And the man Elkanah with all his family went up to make the year’s offering to the Lord, and to give effect to his oath.
21 E subiu aquele homem Elcana, com toda a sua casa, a sacrificar ao SENHOR o sacrifício anual e a cumprir o seu voto.

22 But Hannah did not go, for she said to her husband, I will not go till the child has been taken from the breast, and then I will take him with me and put him before the Lord, where he may be for ever.
22 Porém Ana não subiu, mas disse a seu marido: Quando o menino for desmamado, então, o levarei, para que apareça perante o SENHOR e lá fique para sempre.

23 And her husband Elkanah said to her, Do whatever seems right to you, but not till you have taken him from the breast; only may the Lord do as he has said. So the woman, waiting there, gave her son milk till he was old enough to be taken from the breast.
23 E Elcana, seu marido, lhe disse: Faze o que bem te parecer a teus olhos; fica até que o desmames; tão-somente confirme o SENHOR a sua palavra. Assim, ficou a mulher e deu leite a seu filho, até que o desmamou.

24 Then when she had done so, she took him with her, with a three-year old ox and an ephah of meal and a skin full of wine, and took him to the house of the Lord at Shiloh: now the child was still very young.
24 E, havendo-o desmamado, o levou consigo, com três bezerros e um efa de farinha e um odre de vinho, e o trouxe à Casa do SENHOR, a Siló. E era o menino ainda muito criança.

25 And when they had made an offering of the ox, they took the child to Eli.
25 E degolaram um bezerro e assim trouxeram o menino a Eli.

26 And she said, O my lord, as your soul is living, my lord, I am that woman who was making a prayer to the Lord here by your side:
26 E disse ela: Ah! Meu senhor, viva a tua alma, meu senhor; eu sou aquela mulher que aqui esteve contigo, para orar ao SENHOR.

27 My prayer was for this child; and the Lord has given him to me in answer to my request:
27 Por este menino orava eu; e o SENHOR me concedeu a minha petição que eu lhe tinha pedido.

28 So I have given him to the Lord; for all his life he is the Lord’s. Then he gave the Lord worship there.
28 Pelo que também ao SENHOR eu o entreguei, por todos os dias que viver; pois ao SENHOR foi pedido. E ele adorou ali ao SENHOR.

1 Samuel 2

1 And Hannah, in prayer before the Lord, said, My heart is glad in the Lord, my horn is lifted up in the Lord: my mouth is open wide over my haters; because my joy is in your salvation.
1 Então, orou Ana e disse: O meu coração exulta no SENHOR, o meu poder está exaltado no SENHOR; a minha boca se dilatou sobre os meus inimigos, porquanto me alegro na tua salvação.

2 No other is holy as the Lord, for there is no other God but you: there is no Rock like our God.
2 Não há santo como é o SENHOR; porque não há outro fora de ti; e rocha nenhuma há como o nosso Deus.

3 Say no more words of pride; let not uncontrolled sayings come out of your mouths: for the Lord is a God of knowledge, by him acts are judged.
3 Não multipliqueis palavras de altíssimas altivezas, nem saiam coisas árduas da vossa boca; porque o SENHOR é o Deus da sabedoria, e por ele são as obras pesadas na balança.

4 The bows of the men of war are broken, and the feeble are clothed with strength.
4 O arco dos fortes foi quebrado, e os que tropeçavam foram cingidos de força.

5 Those who were full are offering themselves as servants for bread; those who were in need are at rest; truly, she who had no children has become the mother of seven; and she who had a family is wasted with sorrow.
5 Os que antes eram fartos se alugaram por pão, mas agora cessaram os que eram famintos; até a estéril teve sete filhos, e a que tinha muitos filhos enfraqueceu.

6 The Lord is the giver of death and life: sending men down to the underworld and lifting them up.
6 O SENHOR é o que tira a vida e a dá; faz descer à sepultura e faz tornar a subir dela.

7 The Lord gives wealth and takes a man’s goods from him: crushing men down and again lifting them up;
7 O SENHOR empobrece e enriquece; abaixa e também exalta.

8 Lifting the poor out of the dust, and him who is in need out of the lowest place, to give them their place among rulers, and for their heritage the seat of glory: for the pillars of the earth are the Lord’s and he has made them the base of the world.
8 Levanta o pobre do pó e, desde o esterco, exalta o necessitado, para o fazer assentar entre os príncipes, para o fazer herdar o trono de glória; porque do SENHOR são os alicerces da terra, e assentou sobre eles o mundo.

9 He will keep the feet of his holy ones, but the evil-doers will come to their end in the dark night, for by strength no man will overcome.
9 Os pés dos seus santos guardará, porém os ímpios ficarão mudos nas trevas; porque o homem não prevalecerá pela força.

10 Those who make war against the Lord will be broken; against them he will send his thunder from heaven: the Lord will be judge of the ends of the earth, he will give strength to his king, lifting up the horn of him on whom the holy oil has been put.
10 Os que contendem com o SENHOR serão quebrantados; desde os céus, trovejará sobre eles; o SENHOR julgará as extremidades da terra, e dará força ao seu rei, e exaltará o poder do seu ungido.

11 Then Elkanah went to Ramah to his house. And the child became the servant of the Lord under the direction of Eli the priest.
11 Então, Elcana foi-se a Ramá, à sua casa; porém o menino ficou servindo ao SENHOR, perante o sacerdote Eli.

12 Now the sons of Eli were evil and good-for-nothing men, having no knowledge of the Lord.
12 Eram, porém, os filhos de Eli filhos de Belial e não conheciam o SENHOR;

13 And the priests’ way with the people was this: when any man made an offering, the priest’s servant came while the flesh was being cooked, having in his hand a meat-hook with three teeth;
13 porquanto o costume daqueles sacerdotes com o povo era que, oferecendo alguém algum sacrifício, vinha o moço do sacerdote, estando-se cozendo a carne, com um garfo de três dentes em sua mão;

14 This he put into the pot, and everything which came up on the hook the priest took for himself. This they did in Shiloh to all the Israelites who came there.
14 e dava com ele, na caldeira, ou na panela, ou no caldeirão, ou na marmita; e tudo quanto o garfo tirava o sacerdote tomava para si; assim faziam a todo o Israel que ia ali a Siló.

15 And more than this, before the fat was burned, the priest’s servant would come and say to the man who was making the offering, Give me some of the flesh to be cooked for the priest; he has no taste for meat cooked in water, but would have you give it uncooked.
15 Também, antes de queimarem a gordura, vinha o moço do sacerdote e dizia ao homem que sacrificava: Dá essa carne para assar ao sacerdote, porque não tomará de ti carne cozida, senão crua.

16 And if the man said to him, First let the fat be burned, then take as much as you will; then the servant would say, No, you are to give it to me now, or I will take it by force.
16 E, dizendo-lhe o homem: Queimem primeiro a gordura de hoje, e depois toma para ti quanto desejar a tua alma, então, ele lhe dizia: Não, agora a hás de dar; e, se não, por força a tomarei.

17 And the sin of these young men was very great before the Lord; for they gave no honour to the Lord’s offerings.
17 Era, pois, muito grande o pecado desses jovens perante o SENHOR, porquanto os homens desprezavam a oferta do SENHOR.

18 But Samuel did the work of the Lord’s house, while he was a child, dressed in a linen ephod.
18 Porém Samuel ministrava perante o SENHOR, sendo ainda jovem, vestido com um éfode de linho.

19 And his mother made him a little robe and took it to him every year when she came with her husband for the year’s offering.
19 E sua mãe lhe fazia uma túnica pequena e, de ano em ano, lha trazia quando com seu marido subia a sacrificar o sacrifício anual.

20 And every year Eli gave Elkanah and his wife a blessing, saying, May the Lord give you offspring by this woman in exchange for the child you have given to the Lord. And they went back to their house.
20 E Eli abençoava a Elcana e à sua mulher e dizia: O SENHOR te dê semente desta mulher, pela petição que fez ao SENHOR. E voltavam para o seu lugar.

21 And the Lord had mercy on Hannah and she gave birth to three sons and two daughters. And the young Samuel became older before the Lord.
21 Visitou, pois, o SENHOR a Ana, e concebeu e teve três filhos e duas filhas; e o jovem Samuel crescia diante do SENHOR.

22 Now Eli was very old; and he had news from time to time of what his sons were doing to all Israel.
22 Era, porém, Eli já muito velho e ouvia tudo quanto seus filhos faziam a todo o Israel e de como se deitavam com as mulheres que em bandos se ajuntavam à porta da tenda da congregação.

23 And he said to them, Why are you doing such things? for from all this people I get accounts of your evil ways.
23 E disse-lhes: Por que fazeis tais coisas? Porque ouço de todo este povo os vossos malefícios.

24 No, my sons, the account which is given me, which the Lord’s people are sending about, is not good.
24 Não, filhos meus, porque não é boa fama esta que ouço; fazeis transgredir o povo do SENHOR.

25 If one man does wrong to another, God will be his judge: but if a man’s sin is against the Lord, who will take up his cause? But they gave no attention to the voice of their father, for it was the Lord’s purpose to send destruction on them.
25 Pecando homem contra homem, os juízes o julgarão; pecando, porém, o homem contra o SENHOR, quem rogará por ele? Mas não ouviram a voz de seu pai, porque o SENHOR os queria matar.

26 And the young Samuel, becoming older, had the approval of the Lord and of men.
26 E o jovem Samuel ia crescendo e fazia-se agradável, assim para com o SENHOR como também para com os homens.

27 And a man of God came to Eli and said to him, The Lord says, Did I let myself be seen by your father’s people when they were in Egypt, servants in Pharaoh’s house?
27 E veio um homem de Deus a Eli e disse-lhe: Assim diz o SENHOR: Não me manifestei, na verdade, à casa de teu pai, estando os israelitas ainda no Egito, na casa de Faraó?

28 Did I take him out of all the tribes of Israel to be my priest and to go up to my altar to make the smoke of the offerings go up and to take up the ephod? Did I give to your father’s family all the offerings made by fire by the children of Israel?
28 E eu o escolhi dentre todas as tribos de Israel para sacerdote, para oferecer sobre o meu altar, para acender o incenso e para trazer o éfode perante mim; e dei à casa de teu pai todas as ofertas queimadas dos filhos de Israel.

29 Why then are you looking with envy on my offerings of meat and of meal which were ordered by my word, honouring your sons before me, and making yourselves fat with all the best of the offerings of Israel, my people?
29 Por que dais coices contra o sacrifício e contra a minha oferta de manjares, que ordenei na minha morada, e honras a teus filhos mais do que a mim, para vos engordardes do principal de todas as ofertas do meu povo de Israel?

30 For this reason the Lord God of Israel has said, Truly I did say that your family and your father’s people would have their place before me for ever: but now the Lord says, Let it not be so; I will give honour to those by whom I am honoured, and those who have no respect for me will be of small value in my eyes.
30 Portanto, diz o SENHOR, Deus de Israel: Na verdade, tinha dito eu que a tua casa e a casa de teu pai andariam diante de mim perpetuamente; porém, agora, diz o SENHOR: Longe de mim tal coisa, porque aos que me honram honrarei, porém os que me desprezam serão envilecidos.

31 See, the days are coming when your arm and the arm of your father’s people will be cut off;
31 Eis que vêm dias em que cortarei o teu braço e o braço da casa de teu pai, para que não haja mais velho algum em tua casa.

32 And never again will there be an old man in your family.
32 E verás o aperto da morada de Deus, em lugar de todo o bem que houvera de fazer a Israel; nem haverá por todos os dias velho algum em tua casa.

33 But one man of your family will not be cut off by my hand, and his eyes will be made dark, and grief will be in his heart: and all the offspring of your family will come to their end by the sword of men.
33 O homem, porém, que eu te não desarraigar do meu altar será para te consumir os olhos e para te entristecer a alma; e toda a multidão da tua casa morrerá quando chegar à idade varonil.

34 And this will be the sign to you, which will come on Hophni and Phinehas, your sons; death will overtake them on the same day.
34 E isto te será por sinal, a saber, o que sobrevirá a teus dois filhos, a Hofni e a Finéias: que ambos morrerão no mesmo dia.

35 And I will make a true priest for myself, one who will do what is in my heart and in my mind: and I will make for him a family which will not come to an end; and his place will be before my holy one for ever.
35 E eu suscitarei para mim um sacerdote fiel, que procederá segundo o meu coração e a minha alma, e eu lhe edificarei uma casa firme, e andará sempre diante do meu ungido.

36 Then it will be that the rest of your family, anyone who has not been cut off, will go down on his knees to him for a bit of silver or a bit of bread, and say, Be pleased to put me into one of the priest’s places so that I may have a little food.
36 E será que todo aquele que ficar de resto da tua casa virá a inclinar-se diante dele, por uma moeda de prata e por um bocado de pão, e dirá: Rogo-te que me admitas a algum ministério sacerdotal, para que possa comer um pedaço de pão.

1 Samuel 3

1 Now the young Samuel was the servant of the Lord before Eli. In those days the Lord kept his word secret from men; there was no open vision.
1 E o jovem Samuel servia ao SENHOR perante Eli. E a palavra do SENHOR era de muita valia naqueles dias; não havia visão manifesta.

2 And at that time, when Eli was resting in his place, (now his eyes were becoming clouded so that he was not able to see,)
2 E sucedeu, naquele dia, que, estando Eli deitado no seu lugar (e os seus olhos se começavam já a escurecer, que não podia ver)

3 And the light of God was still burning, while Samuel was sleeping in the Temple of the Lord where the ark of God was,
3 e estando também Samuel já deitado, antes que a lâmpada de Deus se apagasse no templo do SENHOR, em que estava a arca de Deus,

4 The voice of the Lord said Samuel’s name; and he said, Here am I.
4 o SENHOR chamou a Samuel, e disse ele: Eis-me aqui.

5 And running to Eli he said, Here am I, for you said my name. And Eli said, I did not say your name; go to your rest again. So he went back to his bed.
5 E correu a Eli e disse: Eis-me aqui, porque tu me chamaste. Mas ele disse: Não te chamei eu, torna a deitar-te. E foi e se deitou.

6 And again the Lord said, Samuel. And Samuel got up and went to Eli and said, Here am I; for you certainly said my name. But he said in answer, I said nothing, my son; go to your rest again.
6 E o SENHOR tornou a chamar outra vez a Samuel. Samuel se levantou, e foi a Eli, e disse: Eis-me aqui, porque tu me chamaste. Mas ele disse: Não te chamei eu, filho meu, torna a deitar-te.

7 Now at that time Samuel had no knowledge of the Lord, and the revelation of the word of the Lord had not come to him.
7 Porém Samuel ainda não conhecia o SENHOR, e ainda não lhe tinha sido manifestada a palavra do SENHOR.

8 And for the third time the Lord said Samuel’s name. And he got up and went to Eli and said, Here am I; for you certainly said my name. Then it was clear to Eli that the voice which had said the child’s name was the Lord’s.
8 O SENHOR, pois, tornou a chamar a Samuel, terceira vez, e ele se levantou, e foi a Eli, e disse: Eis-me aqui, porque tu me chamaste. Então, entendeu Eli que o SENHOR chamava o jovem.

9 So Eli said to Samuel, Go back: and if the voice comes again, let your answer be, Say on, Lord; for the ears of your servant are open. So Samuel went back to his bed.
9 Pelo que Eli disse a Samuel: Vai-te deitar, e há de ser que, se te chamar, dirás: Fala, SENHOR, porque o teu servo ouve. Então, Samuel foi e se deitou no seu lugar.

10 Then the Lord came and said as before, Samuel, Samuel. Then Samuel made answer, Say on, Lord; for the ears of your servant are open.
10 Então, veio o SENHOR, e ali esteve, e chamou como das outras vezes: Samuel, Samuel. E disse Samuel: Fala, porque o teu servo ouve.

11 And the Lord said to Samuel, See, I will do a thing in Israel at which the ears of everyone hearing of it will be burning.
11 E disse o SENHOR a Samuel: Eis aqui vou eu a fazer uma coisa em Israel, a qual todo o que ouvir lhe tinirão ambas as orelhas.

12 In that day I will do to Eli everything which I have said about his family, from first to last.
12 Naquele mesmo dia, suscitarei contra Eli tudo quanto tenho falado contra a sua casa; começá-lo-ei e acabá-lo-ei.

13 And you are to say to him that I will send punishment on his family for ever, for the sin which he had knowledge of; because his sons have been cursing God and he had no control over them.
13 Porque já eu lhe fiz saber que julgarei a sua casa para sempre, pela iniqüidade que ele bem conhecia, porque, fazendo-se os seus filhos execráveis, não os repreendeu.

14 So I have made an oath to the family of Eli that no offering of meat or of meal which they may make will ever take away the sin of his family.
14 Portanto, jurei à casa de Eli que nunca jamais será expiada a iniqüidade da casa de Eli com sacrifício nem com oferta de manjares.

15 And Samuel kept where he was, not moving till the time came for opening the doors of the house of God in the morning. And fear kept him from giving Eli an account of his vision.
15 E Samuel ficou deitado até pela manhã e, então, abriu as portas da Casa do SENHOR; porém temia Samuel relatar esta visão a Eli.

16 Then Eli said, Samuel, my son. And Samuel answering said, Here am I.
16 Então, chamou Eli a Samuel e disse: Samuel, meu filho. E disse ele: Eis-me aqui.

17 And he said, What did the Lord say to you? Do not keep it from me: may God’s punishment be on you if you keep from me anything he said to you.
17 E ele disse: Que palavra é a que te falou? Peço-te que ma não encubras; assim Deus te faça e outro tanto se me encobrires alguma palavra de todas as palavras que te falou.

18 Then Samuel gave him an account of everything, keeping nothing back. And he said, It is the Lord; let him do what seems good to him.
18 Então, Samuel lhe contou todas aquelas palavras e nada lhe encobriu. E disse ele: É o SENHOR; faça o que bem parecer aos seus olhos.

19 And Samuel became older, and the Lord was with him and let not one of his words be without effect.
19 E crescia Samuel, e o SENHOR era com ele, e nenhuma de todas as suas palavras deixou cair em terra.

20 And it was clear to all Israel from Dan to Beer-sheba that Samuel had been made a prophet of the Lord.
20 E todo o Israel, desde Dã até Berseba, conheceu que Samuel estava confirmado por profeta do SENHOR.

21 And the Lord was seen again in Shiloh; for the Lord gave to Samuel in Shiloh the revelation of his word.
21 E continuou o SENHOR a aparecer em Siló, porquanto o SENHOR se manifestava a Samuel, em Siló, pela palavra do SENHOR.

1 Samuel 4

1 Now at that time the Philistines came together to make war against Israel, and the men of Israel went out to war against the Philistines and took up their position at the side of Eben-ezer: and the Philistines put their forces in position in Aphek.
1 E veio a palavra de Samuel a todo o Israel; e Israel saiu ao encontro, à peleja, aos filisteus e se acampou junto a Ebenézer; e os filisteus se acamparam junto a Afeca.

2 And the Philistines put their forces in order against Israel, and the fighting was hard, and Israel was overcome by the Philistines, who put to the sword about four thousand of their army in the field.
2 E os filisteus se dispuseram em ordem de batalha, para sair de encontro a Israel; e, estendendo-se a peleja, Israel foi ferido diante dos filisteus, porque feriram na batalha, no campo, uns quatro mil homens.

3 And when the people came back to their tents, the responsible men of Israel said, Why has the Lord let the Philistines overcome us today? Let us get the ark of the Lord’s agreement here from Shiloh, so that it may be with us and give us salvation from the hands of those who are against us.
3 E, tornando o povo ao arraial, disseram os anciãos de Israel: Por que nos feriu o SENHOR, hoje, diante dos filisteus? Tragamos de Siló a arca do concerto do SENHOR, e venha no meio de nós, para que nos livre da mão de nossos inimigos.

4 So the people sent to Shiloh and got the ark of the agreement of the Lord of armies whose resting-place is between the winged ones; and Hophni and Phinehas, the two sons of Eli, were there with the ark of God’s agreement.
4 Enviou, pois, o povo a Siló, e trouxeram de lá a arca do concerto do SENHOR dos Exércitos, que habita entre os querubins; e os dois filhos de Eli, Hofni e Finéias, estavam ali com a arca do concerto de Deus.

5 And when the ark of the Lord’s agreement came into the tent-circle, all Israel gave a great cry, so that the earth was sounding with it.
5 E sucedeu que, vindo a arca do concerto do SENHOR ao arraial, todo o Israel jubilou com grande júbilo, até que a terra estremeceu.

6 And the Philistines, hearing the noise of their cry, said, What is this great cry among the tents of the Hebrews? Then it became clear to them that the ark of the Lord had come to the tent-circle.
6 E os filisteus, ouvindo a voz do júbilo, disseram: Que voz de tão grande júbilo é esta no arraial dos hebreus? Então, souberam que a arca do SENHOR era vinda ao arraial.

7 And the Philistines, full of fear, said, God has come into their tents. And they said, Trouble is ours! for never before has such a thing been seen.
7 Pelo que os filisteus se atemorizaram, porque diziam: Deus veio ao arraial. E diziam mais: Ai de nós! Que tal nunca sucedeu antes.

8 Trouble is ours! Who will give us salvation from the hands of these great gods? These are the gods who sent all sorts of blows on the Egyptians in the waste land.
8 Ai de nós! Quem nos livrará da mão destes grandiosos deuses? Estes são os deuses que feriram os egípcios com todas as pragas junto ao deserto.

9 Be strong, O Philistines, be men! Do not be servants to the Hebrews as they have been to you: go forward to the fight without fear.
9 Esforçai-vos e sede homens, ó filisteus, para que, porventura, não venhais a servir aos hebreus, como eles serviram a vós; sede, pois, homens e pelejai.

10 So the Philistines went to the fight, and Israel was overcome, and every man went in flight to his tent: and great was the destruction, for thirty thousand footmen of Israel were put to the sword.
10 Então, pelejaram os filisteus, e Israel foi ferido; e fugiram, cada um para a sua tenda; e foi tão grande o estrago, que caíram de Israel trinta mil homens de pé.

11 And the ark of God was taken; and Hophni and Phinehas, the sons of Eli, were put to the sword.
11 E foi tomada a arca de Deus; e os dois filhos de Eli, Hofni e Finéias, morreram.

12 And a man of Benjamin went running from the fight and came to Shiloh the same day with his clothing out of order and earth on his head.
12 Então, correu da batalha um homem de Benjamim, e chegou no mesmo dia a Siló, e trazia as vestes rotas e terra sobre a cabeça.

13 And when he came, Eli was seated by the wayside watching: and in his heart was fear for the ark of God. And when the man came into the town and gave the news, there was a great outcry.
13 E, chegando ele, eis que Eli estava assentado sobre uma cadeira, vigiando ao pé do caminho; porquanto o seu coração estava tremendo pela arca de Deus; entrando, pois, aquele homem a anunciar isso na cidade, toda a cidade gritou.

14 And Eli, hearing the noise and the cries, said, What is the reason of this outcry? And the man came quickly and gave the news to Eli.
14 E Eli, ouvindo a voz do grito, disse: Que voz de alvoroço é esta? Então, chegou aquele homem a grande pressa, e veio, e o anunciou a Eli.

15 Now Eli was ninety-eight years old, and his eyes were fixed so that he was not able to see.
15 E era Eli da idade de noventa e oito anos; e estavam os seus olhos tão escurecidos, que já não podia ver.

16 And the man said to Eli, I have come from the army and have come in flight today from the fight. And he said, How did it go, my son?
16 E disse aquele homem a Eli: Eu sou o que venho da batalha, porque eu fugi, hoje, da batalha. E disse ele: Que coisa sucedeu, filho meu?

17 And the man said, Israel went in flight from the Philistines, and there has been great destruction among the people, and your two sons, Hophni and Phinehas, are dead, and the ark of God has been taken.
17 Então, respondeu o que trazia as novas e disse: Israel fugiu de diante dos filisteus, e houve também grande destroço entre o povo; e, além disso, também teus dois filhos, Hofni e Finéias, morreram, e a arca de Deus é tomada.

18 And at these words about the ark of God, Eli, falling back off his seat by the side of the doorway into the town, came down on the earth so that his neck was broken and death overtook him, for he was an old man and of great weight. He had been judging Israel for forty years.
18 E sucedeu que, fazendo ele menção da arca de Deus, Eli caiu da cadeira para trás, da banda da porta, e quebrou-se-lhe o pescoço, e morreu, porquanto o homem era velho e pesado; e tinha ele julgado a Israel quarenta anos.

19 And his daughter-in-law, the wife of Phinehas, was with child and near the time when she would give birth; and when she had the news that the ark of God had been taken and that her father-in-law and her husband were dead, her pains came on her suddenly and she gave birth.
19 E, estando sua nora, a mulher de Finéias, grávida, e próxima ao parto, e ouvindo estas novas, de que a arca de Deus era tomada e de que seu sogro e seu marido morreram, encurvou-se e deu à luz; porquanto as dores lhe sobrevieram.

20 And when she was very near death the women who were with her said, Have no fear, for you have given birth to a son. But she made no answer and gave no attention to it.
20 E, ao tempo em que ia morrendo, disseram as mulheres que estavam com ela: Não temas, pois tiveste um filho. Ela, porém, não respondeu, nem fez caso disso.

21 And she gave the child the name of Ichabod, saying, The glory has gone from Israel: because the ark of God was taken and because of her father-in-law and her husband.
21 Mas chamou ao menino Icabô, dizendo: Foi-se a glória de Israel, porquanto a arca de Deus foi levada presa e por causa de seu sogro e de seu marido.

22 And she said, The glory is gone from Israel, for the ark of God has been taken.
22 E disse mais: De Israel a glória é levada presa, pois é tomada a arca de Deus.

1 Samuel 5

1 Now the Philistines, having taken the ark of God, took it with them from Eben-ezer to Ashdod.
1 Os filisteus, pois, tomaram a arca de Deus e a trouxeram de Ebenézer a Asdode.

2 They took the ark of God into the house of Dagon and put it by the side of Dagon.
2 E tomaram os filisteus a arca de Deus, e a meteram na casa de Dagom, e a puseram junto a Dagom.

3 And when the people of Ashdod got up early on the morning after, they saw that Dagon had come down to the earth on his face before the ark of the Lord. And they took Dagon up and put him in his place again.
3 Levantando-se, porém, de madrugada os de Asdode, no dia seguinte, eis que Dagom estava caído com o rosto em terra, diante da arca do SENHOR; e tomaram a Dagom e tornaram a pô-lo no seu lugar.

4 And when they got up early on the morning after, Dagon had come down to the earth on his face before the ark of the Lord; and his head and his hands were broken off on the doorstep; only the base was in its place.
4 E, levantando-se de madrugada no dia seguinte, pela manhã, eis que Dagom jazia caído com o rosto em terra, diante da arca do SENHOR; e a cabeça de Dagom e ambas as palmas das suas mãos, cortadas sobre o limiar; somente o tronco ficou a Dagom.

5 So to this day no priest of Dagon, or any who come into Dagon’s house, will put his foot on the doorstep of the house of Dagon in Ashdod.
5 Pelo que nem os sacerdotes de Dagom, nem nenhum de todos os que entram na casa de Dagom pisam o limiar de Dagom em Asdode, até ao dia de hoje.

6 But the hand of the Lord was hard on the people of Ashdod and he sent disease on them through all the country of Ashdod.
6 Porém a mão do SENHOR se agravou sobre os de Asdode, e os assolou, e os feriu com hemorróidas, a Asdode e aos seus termos.

7 And when the men of Ashdod saw how it was, they said, Let not the ark of the God of Israel be with us, for his hand is hard on us and on Dagon our god.
7 Vendo, então, os homens de Asdode que assim era, disseram: Não fique conosco a arca do Deus de Israel; pois a sua mão é dura sobre nós e sobre Dagom, nosso deus.

8 So they sent for all the lords of the Philistines to come together there, and said, What are we to do with the ark of the God of Israel? And their answer was, Let the ark of the God of Israel be taken away to Gath. So they took the ark of the God of Israel away.
8 Pelo que enviaram, e congregaram a si todos os príncipes dos filisteus, e disseram: Que faremos nós da arca do Deus de Israel? E responderam: A arca do Deus de Israel dará volta a Gate. Assim, a rodearam com a arca do Deus de Israel.

9 But after they had taken it away, the hand of the Lord was stretched out against the town for its destruction: and the signs of disease came out on all the men of the town, small and great.
9 E sucedeu que, desde que a rodearam com ela, a mão do SENHOR veio contra aquela cidade, com mui grande vexação; pois feriu os homens daquela cidade, desde o pequeno até ao grande; e tinham hemorróidas nas partes secretas.

10 So they sent the ark of God to Ekron. And when the ark of God came to Ekron, the people of the town made an outcry, saying, They have sent the ark of the God of Israel to us for the destruction of us and of our people.
10 Então, enviaram a arca de Deus a Ecrom. Sucedeu, porém, que, vindo a arca de Deus a Ecrom, os de Ecrom exclamaram, dizendo: Transportaram para nós a arca do Deus de Israel, para nos matarem, a nós e ao nosso povo.

11 So they sent and got together all the lords of the Philistines, and they said, Send away the ark of the God of Israel, and let it go back to its place, so that it may not be the cause of death to us and to our people: for there was a great fear of death through all the town; the hand of God was very hard on them there.
11 E enviaram, e congregaram a todos os príncipes dos filisteus, e disseram: Enviai a arca do Deus de Israel, e torne para o seu lugar, para que não mate nem a nós nem ao nosso povo. Porque havia mortal vexação em toda a cidade, e a mão de Deus muito se agravara ali.

12 And those men who were not overtaken by death were cruelly diseased: and the cry of the town went up to heaven.
12 E os homens que não morriam eram tão feridos com hemorróidas, que o clamor da cidade subia até o céu.

1 Samuel 6

1 Now the ark of the Lord was in the country of the Philistines for seven months.
1 Havendo, pois, estado a arca do SENHOR na terra dos filisteus sete meses,

2 And the Philistines sent for the priests and those who were wise in secret arts, and said to them, What are we to do with the ark of the Lord? How are we to send it away to its place?
2 os filisteus chamaram os sacerdotes e os adivinhadores, dizendo: Que faremos nós da arca do SENHOR? Fazei-nos saber como a tornaremos a enviar ao seu lugar.

3 And they said, If you send away the ark of the God of Israel, do not send it without an offering, but send him a sin-offering with it: then you will have peace again, and it will be clear to you why the weight of his hand has not been lifted from you.
3 Os quais disseram: Se enviardes a arca do Deus de Israel, não a envieis vazia, porém sem falta lhe enviareis uma oferta para a expiação da culpa; então, sereis curados, e se vos fará saber por que a sua mão se não tira de vós.

4 Then they said, What sin-offering are we to send to him? And they said, Five gold images of the growths caused by your disease and five gold mice, one for every lord of the Philistines: for the same disease came on you and on your lords.
4 Então, disseram: Qual é a expiação da culpa que lhe havemos de oferecer? E disseram: Segundo o número dos príncipes dos filisteus, cinco hemorróidas de ouro e cinco ratos de ouro, porquanto a praga é uma mesma sobre todos vós e sobre todos os vossos príncipes.

5 So make images of the growths caused by your disease and of the mice which are damaging your land; and give glory to the God of Israel: it may be that the weight of his hand will be lifted from you and from your gods and from your land.
5 Fazei, pois, umas imagens das vossas hemorróidas e as imagens dos vossos ratos, que andam destruindo a terra, e dai glória ao Deus de Israel; porventura, aliviará a sua mão de cima de vós, e de cima do vosso deus, e de cima da vossa terra.

6 Why do you make your hearts hard, like the hearts of Pharaoh and the Egyptians? When he had made sport of them, did they not let the people go, and they went away?
6 Por que, pois, endureceríeis o coração, como os egípcios e Faraó endureceram o coração? Porventura, depois de os haverem tratado tão mal, não os deixaram ir, e eles não se foram?

7 So now, take and make ready a new cart, and two cows which have never come under the yoke, and have the cows yoked to the cart, and take their young ones away from them:
7 Agora, pois, tomai, e fazei-vos um carro novo, e tomai duas vacas que criem, sobre as quais não tenha subido o jugo, e atai as vacas ao carro, e levai os seus bezerros de após elas para casa.

8 And put the ark of the Lord on the cart, and the gold images which you are sending as a sin-offering in a chest by its side; and send it away so that it may go.
8 Então, tomai a arca do SENHOR, e ponde-a sobre o carro, e metei num cofre, ao seu lado, as figuras de ouro que lhe haveis de oferecer em expiação da culpa; e assim a enviareis, para que se vá.

9 If it goes by the land of Israel to Beth-shemesh, then this great evil is his work; but if not, then we may be certain that the evil was not his doing, but was the working of chance.
9 Vede então: se subir pelo caminho do seu termo a Bete-Semes, foi ele que nos fez este grande mal; e, se não, saberemos que não nos tocou a sua mão, e que isso nos sucedeu por acaso.

10 And the men did so; they took two cows, yoking them to the cart and shutting up their young ones in their living-place:
10 E assim fizeram aqueles homens, e tomaram duas vacas que criavam, e as ataram ao carro, e os seus bezerros encerraram em casa.

11 And they put the ark of the Lord on the cart and the chest with the gold images.
11 E puseram a arca do SENHOR sobre o carro, como também o cofre com os ratos de ouro e com as imagens das suas hemorróidas.

12 And the cows took the straight way, by the road to Beth-shemesh; they went by the highway, not turning to the right or to the left, and the sound of their voices was clear on the road; and the lords of the Philistines went after them as far as the edge of Beth-shemesh.
12 Então, as vacas se encaminharam direitamente pelo caminho de Bete-Semes e seguiam um mesmo caminho, andando e berrando, sem se desviarem nem para a direita nem para a esquerda; e os príncipes dos filisteus foram atrás delas, até ao termo de Bete-Semes.

13 And the people of Beth-shemesh were cutting their grain in the valley, and lifting up their eyes they saw the ark and were full of joy when they saw it.
13 E andavam os de Bete-Semes fazendo a sega do trigo no vale e, levantando os olhos, viram a arca; e, vendo-a, se alegraram.

14 And the cart came into the field of Joshua the Beth-shemite, and came to a stop there by a great stone: and cutting up the wood of the cart they made a burned offering of the cows to the Lord.
14 E o carro veio ao campo de Josué, o bete-semita, e parou ali; e ali estava uma grande pedra; e fenderam a madeira do carro e ofereceram as vacas ao SENHOR, em holocausto.

15 Then the Levites took down the ark of the Lord and the chest in which were the gold images, and put them on the great stone: and the men of Beth-shemesh made burned offerings and gave worship that day before the Lord.
15 E os levitas desceram a arca do SENHOR, como também o cofre que estava junto a ela, em que estavam as obras de ouro, e puseram-nos sobre aquela grande pedra; e os homens de Bete-Semes ofereceram holocaustos e sacrificaram sacrifícios ao SENHOR no mesmo dia.

16 And the five lords of the Philistines, having seen it, went back to Ekron the same day.
16 E, vendo aquilo os cinco príncipes dos filisteus, voltaram para Ecrom no mesmo dia.

17 Now these are the gold images which the Philistines sent as a sin-offering to the Lord; one for Ashdod, one for Gaza, one for Ashkelon, one for Gath, one for Ekron;
17 Estas, pois, são as hemorróidas de ouro que enviaram os filisteus ao SENHOR, em expiação da culpa: por Asdode uma, por Gaza outra, por Asquelom outra, por Gate outra, por Ecrom outra;

18 And the gold mice, one for every town of the Philistines, the property of the five lords, walled towns as well as country places: and the great stone where they put the ark of the Lord is still in the field of Joshua the Beth-shemite to this day.
18 como também os ratos de ouro, segundo o número de todas as cidades dos filisteus, pertencentes aos cinco príncipes, desde as cidades fortes até às aldeias e até Abel, a grande pedra sobre a qual puseram a arca do SENHOR, que ainda está até ao dia de hoje no campo de Josué, o bete-semita.

19 But the Lord sent destruction on seventy men of the people of Beth-shemesh for looking into the ark of the Lord; and great was the sorrow of the people for the destruction which the Lord had sent on them.
19 E feriu o SENHOR os homens de Bete-Semes, porquanto olharam para dentro da arca do SENHOR, até ferir do povo cinqüenta mil e setenta homens; então, o povo se entristeceu, porquanto o SENHOR fizera tão grande estrago entre o povo.

20 And the men of Beth-shemesh said, Who is able to keep his place before the Lord, this holy God? and to whom may he go from us?
20 Então, disseram os homens de Bete-Semes: Quem poderia estar em pé perante o SENHOR, este Deus santo? E a quem subirá desde nós?

21 And they sent men to the people living in Kiriath-jearim, saying, The Philistines have sent back the ark of the Lord; come and take it up to your country.
21 Enviaram, pois, mensageiros aos habitantes de Quiriate-Jearim, dizendo: Os filisteus remeteram a arca do SENHOR; descei, pois, e fazei-a subir para vós.

1 Samuel 7

1 So the men of Kiriath-jearim came and took the ark of the Lord to the house of Abinadab in Gibeah, and they made his son Eleazar holy and put the ark in his care.
1 Então, vieram os homens de Quiriate-Jearim, e levaram a arca do SENHOR, e a trouxeram à casa de Abinadabe, no outeiro; e consagraram Eleazar, seu filho, para que guardasse a arca do SENHOR.

2 And the ark was in Kiriath-jearim for a long time, as much as twenty years: and all Israel was searching after the Lord with weeping.
2 E sucedeu que, desde aquele dia, a arca ficou em Quiriate-Jearim, e tantos dias se passaram, que chegaram até vinte anos; e lamentava toda a casa de Israel após o SENHOR.

3 Then Samuel said to all Israel, If with all your hearts you would come back to the Lord, then put away all the strange gods and the Astartes from among you, and let your hearts be turned to the Lord, and be servants to him only: and he will make you safe from the hands of the Philistines.
3 Então, falou Samuel a toda a casa de Israel, dizendo: Se com todo o vosso coração vos converterdes ao SENHOR, tirai dentre vós os deuses estranhos e os astarotes, e preparai o vosso coração ao SENHOR, e servi a ele só, e vos livrará da mão dos filisteus.

4 So the children of Israel gave up the worship of Baal and Astarte, and became worshippers of the Lord only.
4 Então, os filhos de Israel tiraram dentre si os baalins e os astarotes e serviram só ao SENHOR.

5 Then Samuel said, Let all Israel come to Mizpah and I will make prayer to the Lord for you.
5 Disse mais Samuel: Congregai todo o Israel em Mispa, e orarei por vós ao SENHOR.

6 So they came together to Mizpah, and got water, draining it out before the Lord, and they took no food that day, and they said, We have done evil against the Lord. And Samuel was judge of the children of Israel in Mizpah.
6 E congregaram-se em Mispa, e tiraram água, e a derramaram perante o SENHOR, e jejuaram aquele dia, e disseram ali: Pecamos contra o SENHOR. E julgava Samuel os filhos de Israel em Mispa.

7 Now when the Philistines had news that the children of Israel had come together at Mizpah, the lords of the Philistines went up against Israel. And the children of Israel, hearing of it, were full of fear.
7 Ouvindo, pois, os filisteus que os filhos de Israel estavam congregados em Mispa, subiram os maiorais dos filisteus contra Israel; o que ouvindo os filhos de Israel, temeram por causa dos filisteus.

8 And the children of Israel said to Samuel, Go on crying to the Lord our God for us to make us safe from the hands of the Philistines.
8 Pelo que disseram os filhos de Israel a Samuel: Não cesses de clamar ao SENHOR, nosso Deus, por nós, para que nos livre da mão dos filisteus.

9 And Samuel took a young lamb, offering all of it as a burned offering to the Lord; and Samuel made prayers to the Lord for Israel and the Lord gave him an answer.
9 Então, tomou Samuel um cordeiro que ainda mamava e sacrificou-o inteiro em holocausto ao SENHOR; e clamou Samuel ao SENHOR por Israel, e o SENHOR lhe deu ouvidos.

10 And while Samuel was offering the burned offering, the Philistines came near for the attack on Israel; but at the thunder of the Lord’s voice that day the Philistines were overcome with fear, and they gave way before Israel.
10 E sucedeu que, estando Samuel sacrificando o holocausto, os filisteus chegaram à peleja contra Israel; e trovejou o SENHOR aquele dia com grande trovoada sobre os filisteus e os aterrou de tal modo, que foram derrotados diante dos filhos de Israel.

11 And the men of Israel went out from Mizpah and went after the Philistines, attacking them till they came under Beth-car.
11 E os homens de Israel saíram de Mispa, e perseguiram os filisteus, e os feriram até abaixo de Bete-Car.

12 Then Samuel took a stone and put it up between Mizpah and Jeshanah, naming it Eben-ezer, and saying, Up to now the Lord has been our help.
12 Então, tomou Samuel uma pedra, e a pôs entre Mispa e Sem, e chamou o seu nome Ebenézer, e disse: Até aqui nos ajudou o SENHOR.

13 So the Philistines were overcome, and did not come into the country of Israel again: and all the days of Samuel the hand of the Lord was against the Philistines.
13 Assim, os filisteus foram abatidos e nunca mais vieram aos termos de Israel, porquanto foi a mão do SENHOR contra os filisteus todos os dias de Samuel.

14 And the towns which the Philistines had taken were given back to Israel, from Ekron to Gath, and all the country round them Israel made free from the power of the Philistines. And there was peace between Israel and the Amorites.
14 E as cidades que os filisteus tinham tomado a Israel foram restituídas a Israel, desde Ecrom até Gate; e até os seus termos Israel arrebatou da mão dos filisteus; e houve paz entre Israel e os amorreus.

15 And Samuel was judge of Israel all the days of his life.
15 E Samuel julgou a Israel todos os dias da sua vida.

16 From year to year he went in turn to Beth-el and Gilgal and Mizpah, judging Israel in all those places.
16 E ia de ano em ano e rodeava a Betel, e a Gilgal, e a Mispa; e julgava a Israel em todos aqueles lugares.

17 And his base was at Ramah, where his house was; there he was judge of Israel and there he made an altar to the Lord.
17 Porém voltava a Ramá, porque estava ali a sua casa, e ali julgava a Israel, e edificou ali um altar ao SENHOR.

1 Samuel 8

1 Now when Samuel was old, he made his sons judges over Israel.
1 E sucedeu que, tendo Samuel envelhecido, constituiu a seus filhos por juízes sobre Israel.

2 The name of his first son was Joel and the name of his second Abijah: they were judges in Beer-sheba.
2 E era o nome do seu filho primogênito Joel, e o nome do seu segundo, Abias; e foram juízes em Berseba.

3 And his sons did not go in his ways, but moved by the love of money took rewards, and were not upright in judging.
3 Porém seus filhos não andaram pelos caminhos dele; antes, se inclinaram à avareza, e tomaram presentes, e perverteram o juízo.

4 Then all the responsible men of Israel got together and went to Samuel at Ramah,
4 Então, todos os anciãos de Israel se congregaram, e vieram a Samuel, a Ramá,

5 And said to him, See now, you are old, and your sons do not go in your ways: give us a king now to be our judge, so that we may be like the other nations.
5 e disseram-lhe: Eis que já estás velho, e teus filhos não andam pelos teus caminhos; constitui-nos, pois, agora, um rei sobre nós, para que ele nos julgue, como o têm todas as nações.

6 But Samuel was not pleased when they said to him, Give us a king to be our judge. And Samuel made prayer to the Lord.
6 Porém essa palavra pareceu mal aos olhos de Samuel, quando disseram: Dá-nos um rei, para que nos julgue. E Samuel orou ao SENHOR.

7 And the Lord said to Samuel, Give ear to the voice of the people and what they say to you: they have not been turned away from you, but they have been turned away from me, not desiring me to be king over them.
7 E disse o SENHOR a Samuel: Ouve a voz do povo em tudo quanto te disser, pois não te tem rejeitado a ti; antes, a mim me tem rejeitado, para eu não reinar sobre ele.

8 As they have done from the first, from the day when I took them out of Egypt till this day, turning away from me and worshipping other gods, so now they are acting in the same way to you.
8 Conforme todas as obras que fez desde o dia em que o tirei do Egito até ao dia de hoje, pois a mim me deixou, e a outros deuses serviu, assim também te fez a ti.

9 Give ear now to their voice: but make a serious protest to them, and give them a picture of the sort of king who will be their ruler.
9 Agora, pois, ouve a sua voz, porém protesta-lhe solenemente e declara-lhe qual será o costume do rei que houver de reinar sobre ele.

10 And Samuel said all these words of the Lord to the people who were desiring a king.
10 E falou Samuel todas as palavras do SENHOR ao povo, que lhe pedia um rei,

11 And he said, This is the sort of king who will be your ruler: he will take your sons and make them his servants, his horsemen, and drivers of his war-carriages, and they will go running before his war-carriages;
11 e disse: Este será o costume do rei que houver de reinar sobre vós: ele tomará os vossos filhos e os empregará para os seus carros e para seus cavaleiros, para que corram adiante dos seus carros;

12 And he will make them captains of thousands and of fifties; some he will put to work ploughing and cutting his grain and making his instruments of war and building his war-carriages.
12 e os porá por príncipes de milhares e por cinqüentenários; e para que lavrem a sua lavoura, e seguem a sua sega, e façam as suas armas de guerra e os petrechos de seus carros.

13 Your daughters he will take to be makers of perfumes and cooks and bread-makers.
13 E tomará as vossas filhas para perfumistas, cozinheiras e padeiras.

14 He will take your fields and your vine-gardens and your olive-gardens, all the best of them, and give them to his servants.
14 E tomará o melhor das vossas terras, e das vossas vinhas, e dos vossos olivais e os dará aos seus criados.

15 He will take a tenth of your seed and of the fruit of your vines and give it to his servants.
15 E as vossas sementes e as vossas vinhas dizimará, para dar aos seus eunucos e aos seus criados.

16 He will take your men-servants and your servant-girls, and the best of your oxen and your asses and put them to his work.
16 Também os vossos criados, e as vossas criadas, e os vossos melhores jovens, e os vossos jumentos tomará e os empregará no seu trabalho.

17 He will take a tenth of your sheep: and you will be his servants.
17 Dizimará o vosso rebanho, e vós lhe servireis de criados.

18 Then you will be crying out because of your king whom you have taken for yourselves; but the Lord will not give you an answer in that day.
18 Então, naquele dia, clamareis por causa do vosso rei, que vós houverdes escolhido; mas o SENHOR não vos ouvirá naquele dia.

19 But the people gave no attention to the voice of Samuel; and they said, No, but we will have a king over us,
19 Porém o povo não quis ouvir a voz de Samuel; e disseram: Não, mas haverá sobre nós um rei.

20 So that we may be like the other nations, and so that our king may be our judge and go out before us to war.
20 E nós também seremos como todas as outras nações; e o nosso rei nos julgará, e sairá adiante de nós, e fará as nossas guerras.

21 Then Samuel, after hearing all the people had to say, went and gave an account of it to the Lord.
21 Ouvindo, pois, Samuel todas as palavras do povo, as falou perante os ouvidos do SENHOR.

22 And the Lord said to Samuel, Give ear to their voice and make a king for them. Then Samuel said to the men of Israel, Let every man go back to his town.
22 Então, o SENHOR disse a Samuel: Dá ouvidos à sua voz, constitui-lhes rei. Então, Samuel disse aos filhos de Israel: Vá-se cada qual à sua cidade.

1 Samuel 9

1 Now there was a man of Benjamin named Kish, the son of Abiel, the son of Zeror, the son of Becorath, the son of Aphiah, a Benjamite, a man of wealth.
1 E havia um homem de Benjamim, cujo nome era Quis, filho de Abiel, filho de Zeror, filho de Becorate, filho de Afias, filho de um homem de Benjamim, varão alentado em força.

2 He had a son named Saul, a specially good-looking young man; there was no one better-looking among the children of Israel: he was taller by a head than any other of the people.
2 Este tinha um filho, cujo nome era Saul, jovem e tão belo, que entre os filhos de Israel não havia outro homem mais belo do que ele; desde os ombros para cima, sobressaía a todo o povo.

3 Now the asses of Saul’s father Kish had gone wandering away. And Kish said to his son Saul, Take one of the servants with you, and get up and go in search of the asses.
3 E perderam-se as jumentas de Quis, pai de Saul; pelo que disse Quis a Saul, seu filho: Toma agora contigo um dos moços, e levanta-te, e vai a buscar as jumentas.

4 So they went through the hill-country of Ephraim and through the land of Shalishah, but they saw no sign of them: then they went through the land of Shaalim, but they were not there: and they went through the land of the Benjamites, but they did not come across them.
4 Passou, pois, pela montanha de Efraim e dali passou à terra de Salisa, porém não as acharam; depois, passaram à terra de Saalim, porém tampouco estavam ali; também passou à terra de Benjamim, porém tampouco as acharam.

5 And when they had come to the land of Zuph, Saul said to the servant who was with him, Come, let us go back, or my father may give up caring about the asses and be troubled about us.
5 Vindo eles, então, à terra de Zufe, Saul disse para o seu moço, com quem ele ia: Vem, e voltemos; para que, porventura, meu pai não deixe de inquietar-se pelas jumentas e se aflija por causa de nós.

6 But the servant said to him, See now, in this town there is a man of God, who is highly honoured, and everything he says comes true: let us go there now; it may be that he will give us directions about our journey.
6 Porém ele lhe disse: Eis que há nesta cidade um homem de Deus, e homem honrado é; tudo quanto diz sucede assim infalivelmente; vamo-nos agora lá; porventura, nos mostrará o caminho que devemos seguir.

7 Then Saul said to his servant, But if we go, what are we to take the man? all our bread is gone, and we have no offering to take to the man of God: what are we to do?
7 Então, Saul disse ao seu moço: Eis, porém, se lá formos, que levaremos, então, àquele homem? Porque o pão de nossos alforjes se acabou, e presente nenhum temos que levar ao homem de Deus; que temos?

8 But the servant said in answer, I have here a fourth part of a shekel of silver: I will give that to the man of God, and he will give us directions about our way.
8 E o moço tornou a responder a Saul e disse: Eis que ainda se acha na minha mão um quarto de um siclo de prata, o qual darei ao homem de Deus, para que nos mostre o caminho.

9 (In the past in Israel, when a man went to get directions from God, he said, Come let us go to the Seer, for he who now is named Prophet was in those days given the name of Seer.)
9 (Antigamente em Israel, indo qualquer consultar a Deus, dizia assim: Vinde, e vamos ao vidente; porque ao profeta de hoje antigamente se chamava vidente.)

10 Then Saul said to his servant, You have said well; come, let us go. So they went to the town where the man of God was.
10 Então, disse Saul ao moço: Bem dizes; vem, pois, vamos. E foram-se à cidade onde estava o homem de Deus.

11 And when they were on the way up to the town, they saw some young girls going out to get water and said to them, Is the seer here?
11 E, subindo eles pela subida da cidade, acharam umas moças que saíam a tirar água; e disseram-lhes: Está cá o vidente?

12 And they said, He is; in fact he is before you: go quickly now, for he has come into the town today, for the people are making an offering in the high place today:
12 E elas lhes responderam e disseram: Sim, eis aqui o tens diante de ti; apressa-te, pois, porque hoje veio à cidade; porquanto o povo tem hoje sacrifício no alto.

13 When you come into the town you will see him straight away, before he goes up to the high place for the feast: the people are waiting for his blessing before starting the feast, and after that the guests will take part in it. So go up now and you will see him.
13 Entrando vós na cidade, logo o achareis, antes que suba ao alto para comer; porque o povo não comerá até que ele venha, porque ele é o que abençoa o sacrifício, e depois comem os convidados; subi, pois, agora, que hoje o achareis.

14 So they went up to the town, and when they came inside the town, Samuel came face to face with them on his way to the high place.
14 Subiram, pois, à cidade; e, vindo eles no meio da cidade, eis que Samuel lhes saiu ao encontro, para subir ao alto.

15 Now the day before Saul came, the word of God had come to Samuel, saying,
15 Porque o SENHOR o revelara aos ouvidos de Samuel, um dia antes que Saul viesse, dizendo:

16 Tomorrow about this time I will send you a man from the land of Benjamin, and on him you are to put the holy oil, making him ruler over my people Israel, and he will make my people safe from the hands of the Philistines: for I have seen the sorrow of my people, whose cry has come up to me.
16 Amanhã, a estas horas, te enviarei um homem da terra de Benjamim, o qual ungirás por capitão sobre o meu povo de Israel, e ele livrará o meu povo da mão dos filisteus; porque tenho olhado para o meu povo, porque o clamor chegou a mim.

17 And when Samuel saw Saul, the Lord said to him, This is the man of whom I gave you word! he it is who is to have authority over my people.
17 E, quando Samuel viu a Saul, o SENHOR lhe disse: Eis aqui o homem de quem já te tenho dito. Este dominará sobre o meu povo.

18 Then Saul came up to Samuel in the doorway of the town and said, Give me directions, if you will be so good, to the house of the seer.
18 E Saul se chegou a Samuel no meio da porta e disse: Mostra-me, peço-te, onde está aqui a casa do vidente.

19 Then Samuel said to Saul, I am the seer; go up before me to the high place and take food with me today: and in the morning I will let you go, after opening to you all the secrets of your heart.
19 E Samuel respondeu a Saul e disse: Eu sou o vidente; sobe diante de mim ao alto; e comei hoje comigo; e pela manhã te despedirei e tudo quanto está no teu coração to declararei.

20 As for your asses which have been wandering for three days, give no thought to them, for they have come back. And for whom are all the desired things in Israel? are they not for you and your father’s family?
20 E, quanto às jumentas que há três dias se te perderam, não ocupes o teu coração com elas, porque já se acharam. E para quem é todo o desejo de Israel? Porventura, não é para ti e para toda a casa de teu pai?

21 And Saul said, Am I not a man of Benjamin, the smallest of all the tribes of Israel? and my family the least of the families of Benjamin? why then do you say these words to me?
21 Então, respondeu Saul e disse: Porventura, não sou eu filho de Benjamim, da menor das tribos de Israel? E a minha família, a menor de todas as famílias da tribo de Benjamim? Por que, pois, me falas com semelhantes palavras?

22 Then Samuel took Saul and his servant into the guest room, and made them take the chief place among all the guests who were there, about thirty persons.
22 Porém Samuel tomou a Saul e ao seu moço e os levou à câmara; e deu-lhes lugar acima de todos os convidados, que eram uns trinta homens.

23 And Samuel said to the cook, Give me that part which I gave you orders to keep by you.
23 Então, disse Samuel ao cozinheiro: Dá cá a porção que te dei, de que te disse: Põe-na à parte contigo.

24 And the cook took up the leg with the fat tail on it, and put it before Saul. And Samuel said, This is the part which has been kept for you: take it as your part of the feast; because it has been kept for you till the right time came and till the guests were present. So that day Saul took food with Samuel.
24 Levantou, pois, o cozinheiro a espádua com o que havia nela, e pô-la diante de Saul, e disse Samuel: Eis que isto é o sobejo; põe-no diante de ti e come, porque se guardou para ti para esta ocasião, dizendo eu: Tenho convidado o povo. Assim, comeu Saul aquele dia com Samuel.

25 And when they had come down from the high place into the town, where a bed was made ready for Saul, he went to rest.
25 Então, desceram do alto para a cidade; e falou com Saul sobre o eirado.

26 And about dawn Samuel said to Saul on the roof, Get up so that I may send you away. So Saul got up, and he and Samuel went out together.
26 E se levantaram de madrugada; e sucedeu que, quase ao subir da alva, chamou Samuel a Saul ao eirado, dizendo: Levanta-te, e despedir-te-ei. Levantou-se Saul, e saíram para fora ambos, ele e Samuel.

27 And on their way down to the end of the town, Samuel said to Saul, Give your servant orders to go on in front of us, (so he went on,) but you keep here, so that I may give you the word of God.
27 E, descendo eles para a extremidade da cidade, Samuel disse a Saul: Dize ao moço que passe adiante de nós (e passou); porém, tu, espera agora, e te farei ouvir a palavra de Deus.

1 Samuel 10

1 Then Samuel took the bottle of oil, and put the oil on his head and gave him a kiss and said, Is not the Lord with the holy oil making you ruler over Israel, his people? and you will have authority over the people of the Lord, and you will make them safe from the hands of their attackers round about them, and this will be the sign for you:
1 Então, tomou Samuel um vaso de azeite, e lho derramou sobre a cabeça, e o beijou, e disse: Porventura, te não tem ungido o SENHOR por capitão sobre a sua herdade?

2 When you have gone away from me today, you will see two men by the resting-place of Rachel’s body, in the land of Benjamin at Zelzah; and they will say to you, The asses which you went in search of have come back, and now your father, caring no longer for the asses, is troubled about you, saying, What am I to do about my son?
2 Partindo-te hoje de mim, acharás dois homens junto ao sepulcro de Raquel, no termo de Benjamim, em Zelza, os quais te dirão: Acharam-se as jumentas que foste buscar, e eis que já o teu pai deixou o negócio das jumentas e anda aflito por causa de vós, dizendo: Que farei eu por meu filho?

3 Then you are to go on from there, and when you come to the oak-tree of Tabor, you will see three men going up to God to Beth-el, one having with him three young goats and another three cakes of bread and another a skin full of wine:
3 E, quando dali passares mais adiante e chegares ao carvalho de Tabor, ali te encontrarão três homens, que vão subindo a Deus a Betel: um levando três cabritos, o outro, três bolos de pão, e o outro, um odre de vinho.

4 They will say, Peace be with you, and will give you two cakes of bread, which you are to take from them.
4 E te perguntarão como estás e te darão dois pães, que tomarás da sua mão.

5 After that you will come to Gibeah, the hill of God, where an armed force of the Philistines is stationed: and when you come to the town, you will see a band of prophets coming down from the high place with instruments of music before them; and they will be acting like prophets:
5 Então, virás ao outeiro de Deus, onde está a guarnição dos filisteus; e há de ser que, entrando ali na cidade, encontrarás um rancho de profetas que descem do alto e trazem diante de si saltérios, e tambores, e flautas, e harpas; e profetizarão.

6 And the spirit of the Lord will come on you with power, and you will be acting like a prophet with them, and will be changed into another man.
6 E o Espírito do SENHOR se apoderará de ti, e profetizarás com eles e te mudarás em outro homem.

7 And when these signs come to you, see that you take the chance which is offered you; for God is with you.
7 E há de ser que, quando estes sinais te vierem, faze o que achar a tua mão, porque Deus é contigo.

8 Then you are to go down before me to Gilgal, where I will come to you, for the offering of burned offerings and peace-offerings: go on waiting there for seven days till I come to you and make clear to you what you have to do.
8 Tu, porém, descerás diante de mim a Gilgal, e eis que eu descerei a ti, para sacrificar holocaustos e para oferecer ofertas pacíficas; ali, sete dias esperarás, até que eu venha a ti e te declare o que hás de fazer.

9 And it came about, that when he went away from Samuel, God gave him a changed heart: and all those signs took place that day.
9 Sucedeu, pois, que, virando ele as costas para partir de Samuel, Deus lhe mudou o coração em outro; e todos aqueles sinais aconteceram aquele mesmo dia.

10 And when they came to Gibeah, a band of prophets came face to face with him; and the spirit of God came on him with power and he took his place among them as a prophet.
10 E, chegando eles ao outeiro, eis que um rancho de profetas lhes saiu ao encontro; e o Espírito de Deus se apoderou dele, e profetizou no meio deles.

11 Now when Saul’s old friends saw him among the band of prophets, the people said to one another, What has come to Saul, the son of Kish? Is even Saul among the prophets?
11 E aconteceu que, como todos os que dantes o conheciam viram que eis que com os profetas profetizava, então disse o povo, cada qual ao seu companheiro: Que é o que sucedeu ao filho de Quis? Está também Saul entre os profetas?

12 And one of the people of that place said in answer, And who is their father? So it became a common saying, Is even Saul among the prophets?
12 Então, um homem dali respondeu e disse: Pois quem é o pai deles? Pelo que se tornou em provérbio: Está também Saul entre os profetas?

13 Then going away from the prophets, he came to the house.
13 E, acabando de profetizar, veio ao alto.

14 And Saul’s father’s brother said to him and his servant, Where have you been? And he said, Searching for the asses: and when we saw no sign of them, we came to Samuel.
14 E disse-lhe o tio de Saul, a ele e ao seu moço: Aonde fostes? E disse ele: A buscar as jumentas e, vendo que não apareciam, viemos a Samuel.

15 Then he said, And what did Samuel say to you?
15 Então, disse o tio de Saul: Declara-me, peço-te, que é o que vos disse Samuel?

16 And Saul, answering him, said, He gave us word that the asses had come back. But he said nothing to him of Samuel’s words about the kingdom.
16 E disse Saul a seu tio: Declarou-nos, na verdade, que as jumentas se acharam. Porém o negócio do reino, de que Samuel falara, lhe não declarou.

17 Then Samuel sent for the people to come together before the Lord at Mizpah;
17 Convocou, pois, Samuel o povo ao SENHOR, em Mispa,

18 And he said to the children of Israel, The Lord, the God of Israel, has said, I took Israel out of Egypt, and made you free from the hands of the Egyptians and from all the kingdoms which kept you down:
18 e disse aos filhos de Israel: Assim disse o SENHOR, Deus de Israel: Eu fiz subir a Israel do Egito e livrei-vos da mão dos egípcios e da mão de todos os reinos que vos oprimiam.

19 But today you are turned away from your God, who himself has been your saviour from all your troubles and sorrows; and you have said to him, Put a king over us. So now, take your places before the Lord by your tribes and by your thousands.
19 Mas vós tendes rejeitado hoje a vosso Deus, que vos livrou de todos os vossos males e trabalhos, e lhe tendes dito: Põe um rei sobre nós. Agora, pois, ponde-vos perante o SENHOR, pelas vossas tribos e pelos vossos milhares.

20 So Samuel made all the tribes of Israel come near, and the tribe of Benjamin was taken.
20 Fazendo, pois, chegar Samuel todas as tribos, tomou-se a tribo de Benjamim.

21 Then he made the tribe of Benjamin come near by families, and the family of the Matrites was taken: and from them, Saul, the son of Kish, was taken: but when they went in search of him he was nowhere to be seen.
21 E, fazendo chegar a tribo de Benjamim pelas suas famílias, tomou-se a família de Matri; e dela se tomou Saul, filho de Quis; e o buscaram, porém não se achou.

22 So they put another question to the Lord, Is the man present here? And the answer of the Lord was, He is keeping himself from view among the goods.
22 Então, tornaram a perguntar ao SENHOR se aquele homem ainda viria ali. E disse o SENHOR: Eis que se escondeu entre a bagagem.

23 So they went quickly and made him come out; and when he took his place among the people, he was taller by a head than any of the people.
23 E correram e o tomaram dali. E pôs-se no meio do povo e era mais alto do que todo o povo, desde o ombro para cima.

24 And Samuel said to all the people, Do you see the man of the Lord’s selection, how there is no other like him among all the people? And all the people with loud cries said, Long life to the king!
24 Então, disse Samuel a todo o povo: Vedes já a quem o SENHOR tem elegido? Pois em todo o povo não há nenhum semelhante a ele. Então, jubilou todo o povo, e disseram: Viva o rei!

25 Then Samuel gave the people the laws of the kingdom, writing them in a book which he put in a safe place before the Lord. And Samuel sent all the people away, every man to his house.
25 E declarou Samuel ao povo o direito do reino, e escreveu-o num livro, e pô-lo perante o SENHOR. Então, enviou Samuel a todo o povo, cada um para sua casa.

26 And Saul went to Gibeah, to his house; and with him went the men of war whose hearts had been touched by God.
26 E foi também Saul para sua casa, a Gibeá; e foram com ele, do exército, aqueles cujo coração Deus tocara.

27 But certain good-for-nothing persons said, How is this man to be our saviour? And having no respect for him, they gave him no offering.
27 Mas os filhos de Belial disseram: É este o que nos há de livrar? E o desprezaram e não lhe trouxeram presentes. Porém ele se fez como surdo.

1 Samuel 11

1 Then about a month after this, Nahash the Ammonite came up and put his forces in position for attacking Jabesh-gilead: and all the men of Jabesh said to Nahash, Make an agreement with us and we will be your servants.
1 Então, subiu Naás, amonita, e sitiou a Jabes-Gileade; e disseram todos os homens de Jabes a Naás: Faze aliança conosco, e te serviremos.

2 And Nahash the Ammonite said to them, I will make an agreement with you on this condition, that all your right eyes are put out; so that I may make it a cause of shame to all Israel.
2 Porém Naás, amonita, lhes disse: Com esta condição, farei aliança convosco: que a todos vos arranque o olho direito, e assim ponha esta afronta sobre todo o Israel.

3 Then the responsible men of Jabesh said to him, Give us seven days, so that we may send men to every part of Israel: and then, if no one comes to our help, we will come out to you.
3 Então, os anciãos de Jabes lhe disseram: Deixa-nos por sete dias, para que enviemos mensageiros por todos os termos de Israel e, não havendo ninguém que nos livre, então, sairemos a ti.

4 So they sent representatives to Saul’s town Gibeah, and these gave the news to the people: and all the people gave themselves to weeping.
4 E, vindo os mensageiros a Gibeá de Saul, falaram estas palavras aos ouvidos do povo. Então, todo o povo levantou a sua voz e chorou.

5 Now Saul came from the field, driving the oxen before him; and he said, Why are the people weeping? And they gave him word of what the men of Jabesh had said.
5 E eis que Saul vinha do campo, atrás dos bois; e disse Saul: Que tem o povo, que chora? E contaram-lhe as palavras dos homens de Jabes.

6 And at their words, the spirit of God came on Saul with power, and he became very angry.
6 Então, o Espírito de Deus se apoderou de Saul, ouvindo estas palavras, e acendeu-se em grande maneira a sua ira.

7 And he took two oxen and, cutting them up, sent them through all the land of Israel by the hand of runners, saying, If any man does not come out after Saul and Samuel, this will be done to his oxen. And the fear of the Lord came on the people and they came out like one man.
7 E tomou um par de bois, e cortou-os em pedaços, e os enviou a todos os termos de Israel pelas mãos dos mensageiros, dizendo: Qualquer que não sair atrás de Saul e atrás de Samuel, assim se fará aos seus bois. Então, caiu o temor do SENHOR sobre o povo, e saíram como um só homem.

8 And he had them numbered in Bezek: the children of Israel were three hundred thousand, and the men of Judah thirty thousand.
8 E contou-os em Bezeque; e houve, dos filhos de Israel, trezentos mil; e, dos homens de Judá, trinta mil.

9 Then he said to the representatives who had come, Say to the men of Jabesh-gilead, Tomorrow, by the time the sun is high, you will be made safe. And the representatives came and gave the news to the men of Jabesh; and they were glad.
9 Então, disseram aos mensageiros que vieram: Assim direis aos homens de Jabes-Gileade: Amanhã, em aquecendo o sol, vos virá livramento. Vindo, pois, os mensageiros, e, anunciando-o aos homens de Jabes, se alegraram.

10 So the men of Jabesh said, Tomorrow we will come out to you, and you may do to us whatever seems good to you.
10 E os homens de Jabes disseram: Amanhã, sairemos a vós; então, nos fareis conforme tudo o que parece bem aos vossos olhos.

11 Now on the day after, Saul put the people into three bands, and in the morning watch they came to the tents of the Ammonites, and they went on attacking them till the heat of the day: and those who were not put to death were put to flight in every direction, so that no two of them were together.
11 E sucedeu que, ao outro dia, Saul pôs o povo em três companhias, e vieram ao meio do arraial pela vigília da manhã e feriram a Amom, até que o dia aqueceu. E sucedeu que os restantes se espalharam, que não ficaram dois deles juntos.

12 And the people said to Samuel, Who was it who said, Is Saul to be our king? give the men up, so that we may put them to death.
12 Então, disse o povo a Samuel: Quem é aquele que dizia que Saul não reinaria sobre nós? Dai cá aqueles homens, e os mataremos.

13 And Saul said, Not a man is to be put to death today: for today the Lord has made Israel safe.
13 Porém Saul disse: Hoje, não morrerá nenhum, pois, hoje, tem feito o SENHOR um livramento em Israel.

14 Then Samuel said to the people, Come, let us go to Gilgal and there make the kingdom strong in the hands of Saul.
14 E disse Samuel ao povo: Vinde, vamos nós a Gilgal e renovemos ali o reino.

15 So all the people went to Gilgal; and there in Gilgal they made Saul king before the Lord; and peace-offerings were offered before the Lord; and there Saul and all the men of Israel were glad with great joy.
15 E todo o povo partiu para Gilgal, e levantaram ali rei a Saul perante o SENHOR, em Gilgal, e ofereceram ali ofertas pacíficas perante o SENHOR; e Saul se alegrou muito ali com todos os homens de Israel.

1 Samuel 12

1 And Samuel said to all Israel, You see that I have given ear to everything you said to me, and have made a king over you.
1 Então, disse Samuel a todo o Israel: Eis que ouvi a vossa voz em tudo quanto me dissestes e pus sobre vós um rei.

2 And now, see, the king is before you: and I am old and grey-headed, and my sons are with you: I have been living before your eyes from my early days till now.
2 Agora, pois, eis que o rei vai diante de vós; e já envelheci e encaneci, e eis que meus filhos estão convosco; e eu tenho andado diante de vós desde a minha mocidade até ao dia de hoje.

3 Here I am: give witness against me before the Lord and before the man on whom he has put the holy oil: whose ox or ass have I taken? to whom have I been untrue? who has been crushed down by me? from whose hand have I taken a price for the blinding of my eyes? I will give it all back to you.
3 Eis-me aqui, testificai contra mim perante o SENHOR e perante o seu ungido: a quem tomei o boi? A quem tomei o jumento? A quem defraudei? A quem tenho oprimido e de cuja mão tenho tomado presente e com ele encobri os meus olhos? E vo-lo restituirei.

4 And they said, You have never been untrue to us or cruel to us; you have taken nothing from any man.
4 Então, disseram: Em nada nos defraudaste, nem nos oprimiste, nem tomaste coisa alguma da mão de ninguém.

5 Then he said, The Lord is witness against you, and the man on whom he has put the holy oil is witness this day that you have seen no wrong in me. And they said, He is witness.
5 E ele lhes disse: O SENHOR seja testemunha contra vós, e o seu ungido seja hoje testemunha de que nada tendes achado na minha mão. E disse o povo: Seja testemunha.

6 And Samuel said to the people, The Lord is witness, who gave authority to Moses and Aaron, and who took your fathers up out of the land of Egypt.
6 Então, disse Samuel ao povo: O SENHOR é o que escolheu a Moisés e a Arão e tirou vossos pais da terra do Egito.

7 Keep your places now, while I take up the argument with you before the Lord, and give you the story of the righteousness of the Lord, which he has made clear by his acts to you and to your fathers.
7 Agora, pois, ponde-vos aqui em pé, e contenderei convosco perante o SENHOR, sobre todas as justiças do SENHOR, que fez a vós e a vossos pais.

8 When Jacob and his sons had come into Egypt, and were crushed by the Egyptians, the prayers of your fathers came up to the Lord, and the Lord sent Moses and Aaron, who took your fathers out of Egypt, and he put them into this place.
8 Havendo entrado Jacó no Egito, vossos pais clamaram ao SENHOR, e o SENHOR enviou a Moisés e Arão, que tiraram a vossos pais do Egito e os fizeram habitar neste lugar.

9 But they were false to the Lord their God, and he gave them up into the hands of Sisera, captain of the army of Jabin, king of Hazor, and into the hands of the Philistines, and into the hands of the king of Moab, who made war against them.
9 Porém esqueceram-se do SENHOR, seu Deus; então, os entregou na mão de Sísera, cabeça do exército de Hazor, e na mão dos filisteus, e na mão do rei dos moabitas, que pelejaram contra eles.

10 Then crying out to the Lord, they said, We have done evil, because we have been turned away from the Lord, worshipping the Baals and the Astartes: but now, make us safe from those who are against us and we will be your servants.
10 E clamaram ao SENHOR e disseram: Pecamos, pois deixamos o SENHOR e servimos aos baalins e astarotes; agora, pois, livra-nos da mão de nossos inimigos, e te serviremos.

11 So the Lord sent Jerubbaal and Barak and Jephthah and Samuel and took you out of the power of those who were fighting against you on every side, and made you safe.
11 E o SENHOR enviou a Jerubaal, e a Bedã, e a Jefté, e a Samuel; e livrou-vos da mão de vossos inimigos em redor, e habitastes seguros.

12 And when you saw that Nahash, the king of the Ammonites, was coming against you, you said to me, No more of this; we will have a king for our ruler: when the Lord your God was your king.
12 E, vendo vós que Naás, rei dos filhos de Amom, vinha contra vós, me dissestes: Não, mas reinará sobre nós um rei; sendo, porém, o SENHOR, vosso Deus, o vosso Rei.

13 Here, then, is the king marked out by you: the Lord has put a king over you.
13 Agora, pois, vedes aí o rei que elegestes e que pedistes; e eis que o SENHOR tem posto sobre vós um rei.

14 If in the fear of the Lord you are his servants, hearing his voice and not going against the orders of the Lord, but being true to the Lord your God, you and the king ruling over you, then all will be well:
14 Se temerdes ao SENHOR, e o servirdes, e derdes ouvidos à sua voz, e não fordes rebeldes ao dito do SENHOR, assim vós, como o rei que reina sobre vós, seguireis o SENHOR, vosso Deus.

15 But if you do not give ear to the voice of the Lord, but go against his orders, then the hand of the Lord will be against you and against your king for your destruction, as it was against your fathers.
15 Mas, se não derdes ouvidos à voz do SENHOR, mas, antes, fordes rebeldes ao dito do SENHOR, a mão do SENHOR será contra vós, como era contra vossos pais.

16 Now keep where you are and see this great thing which the Lord will do before your eyes.
16 Ponde-vos também, agora, aqui e vede esta grande coisa que o SENHOR vai fazer diante dos vossos olhos.

17 Is it not now the time of the grain cutting? My cry will go up to the Lord and he will send thunder and rain: so that you may see and be conscious of your great sin which you have done in the eyes of the Lord in desiring a king for yourselves.
17 Não é, hoje, a sega dos trigos? Clamarei, pois, ao SENHOR, e dará trovões e chuva; e sabereis e vereis que é grande a vossa maldade, que tendes feito perante o SENHOR, pedindo para vós um rei.

18 So Samuel made prayer to the Lord; and the Lord sent thunder and rain that day: and all the people were in fear of the Lord and of Samuel.
18 Então, invocou Samuel ao SENHOR, e o SENHOR deu trovões e chuva naquele dia; pelo que todo o povo temeu em grande maneira ao SENHOR e a Samuel.

19 And all the people said to Samuel, Make prayer for us to the Lord your God so that death may not overtake us: for in addition to all our sins we have done this evil, in desiring a king.
19 E todo o povo disse a Samuel: Roga pelos teus servos ao SENHOR, teu Deus, para que não venhamos a morrer; porque a todos os nossos pecados temos acrescentado este mal, de pedirmos para nós um rei.

20 Then Samuel said to the people, Have no fear: truly you have done evil, but do not be turned away from the Lord; be his servants with all your heart;
20 Então, disse Samuel ao povo: Não temais; vós tendes cometido todo este mal; porém não vos desvieis de seguir ao SENHOR, mas servi ao SENHOR com todo o vosso coração.

21 And do not go from the right way turning to those false gods in which there is no profit and no salvation, for they are false.
21 E não vos desvieis; pois seguiríeis as vaidades, que nada aproveitam e tampouco vos livrarão, porque vaidades são.

22 For the Lord will not give his people up, because of the honour of his name; for it was the Lord’s pleasure to make of you a people for himself.
22 Pois o SENHOR não desamparará o seu povo, por causa do seu grande nome, porque aprouve ao SENHOR fazer-vos o seu povo.

23 And as for me, never will I go against the orders of the Lord by giving up my prayers for you: but I will go on teaching you the good and right way.
23 E, quanto a mim, longe de mim que eu peque contra o SENHOR, deixando de orar por vós; antes, vos ensinarei o caminho bom e direito.

24 Only go in the fear of the Lord, and be his true servants with all your heart, keeping in mind what great things he has done for you.
24 Tão-somente temei ao SENHOR e servi-o fielmente com todo o vosso coração, porque vede quão grandiosas coisas vos fez.

25 But if you still do evil, destruction will overtake you and your king.
25 Porém, se perseverardes em fazer o mal, perecereis, assim vós como o vosso rei.

1 Samuel 13

1 Saul reigned one year; and when he had reigned two years over Israel,
1 Um ano tinha estado Saul em seu reinado e o segundo ano reinou sobre Israel.

2 And Saul took for himself three thousand men of Israel, of whom he kept two thousand with him in Michmash and in the mountain of Beth-el, and a thousand were with Jonathan in Gibeah in the land of Benjamin: the rest of the people he sent back to their tents.
2 Então, Saul escolheu para si três mil homens de Israel; e estavam com Saul dois mil em Micmás e na montanha de Betel, e mil estavam com Jônatas em Gibeá de Benjamim; e despediu o resto do povo, cada um para sua casa.

3 And Jonathan made an attack on the armed force of the Philistines stationed at Gibeah; and news was given to the Philistines that the Hebrews were turned against them. And Saul had a horn sounded through all the land,
3 E Jônatas feriu a guarnição dos filisteus que estava em Gibeá, o que os filisteus ouviram; pelo que Saul tocou a trombeta por toda a terra, dizendo: Ouçam os hebreus.

4 And all Israel had the news that Saul had made an attack on the Philistines, and that Israel was bitterly hated by the Philistines. And the people came together after Saul to Gilgal.
4 Então, todo o Israel ouviu dizer: Saul feriu a guarnição dos filisteus, e também Israel se fez abominável aos filisteus. Então, o povo foi convocado após Saul em Gilgal.

5 And the Philistines came together to make war on Israel, three thousand war-carriages and six thousand horsemen and an army of people like the sands of the sea in number: they came up and took up their position in Michmash, to the east of Beth-aven.
5 E os filisteus se ajuntaram para pelejar contra Israel: trinta mil carros, e seis mil cavaleiros, e povo em multidão como a areia que está à borda do mar; e subiram e se acamparam em Micmás, ao oriente de Bete-Áven.

6 When the men of Israel saw the danger they were in, (for the people were troubled,) they took cover in cracks in the hillsides and in the woods and in rocks and holes and hollows.
6 Vendo, pois, os homens de Israel que estavam em angústia (porque o povo estava apertado), o povo se escondeu pelas cavernas, e pelos espinhais, e pelos penhascos, e pelas fortificações, e pelas covas,

7 And a great number of the people had gone over Jordan to the land of Gad and Gilead; but Saul was still in Gilgal, and all the people went after him shaking in fear.
7 e os hebreus passaram o Jordão para a terra de Gade e Gileade; e, estando Saul ainda em Gilgal, todo o povo veio atrás dele, tremendo.

8 And he went on waiting there for seven days, the time fixed by Samuel: but Samuel did not come to Gilgal; and the people were starting to go away from him.
8 E esperou sete dias, até ao tempo que Samuel determinara; não vindo, porém, Samuel a Gilgal, o povo se espalhava dele.

9 Then Saul said, Come here and give me the burned offering and the peace-offerings. And he made a burned offering to the Lord.
9 Então, disse Saul: Trazei-me aqui um holocausto e ofertas pacíficas. E ofereceu o holocausto.

10 And when the burned offering was ended, Samuel came; and Saul went out to see him and to give him a blessing.
10 E sucedeu que, acabando ele de oferecer o holocausto, eis que Samuel chegou; e Saul lhe saiu ao encontro, para o saudar.

11 And Samuel said, What have you done? And Saul said, Because I saw that the people were going away from me, and you had not come at the time which had been fixed, and the Philistines had come together at Michmash;
11 Então, disse Samuel: Que fizeste? Disse Saul: Porquanto via que o povo se espalhava de mim, e tu não vinhas nos dias aprazados, e os filisteus já se tinham ajuntado em Micmás,

12 I said, Now the Philistines will come down on me at Gilgal, and I have made no prayer for help to the Lord: and so, forcing myself to do it, I made a burned offering.
12 eu disse: Agora, descerão os filisteus sobre mim a Gilgal, e ainda à face do SENHOR não orei; e forcei-me e ofereci holocausto.

13 And Samuel said to Saul, You have done a foolish thing: you have not kept the rules which the Lord your God gave you; it was the purpose of the Lord to make your authority over Israel safe for ever.
13 Então, disse Samuel a Saul: Agiste nesciamente e não guardaste o mandamento que o SENHOR, teu Deus, te ordenou; porque, agora, o SENHOR teria confirmado o teu reino sobre Israel para sempre.

14 But now, your authority will not go on: the Lord, searching for a man who is pleasing to him in every way, has given him the place of ruler over his people, because you have not done what the Lord gave you orders to do.
14 Porém, agora, não subsistirá o teu reino; já tem buscado o SENHOR para si um homem segundo o seu coração e já lhe tem ordenado o SENHOR que seja chefe sobre o seu povo, porquanto não guardaste o que o SENHOR te ordenou.

15 Then Samuel went up from Gilgal and the rest of the people went up after Saul against the men of war, and they came from Gilgal to Gibeah in the land of Benjamin: and Saul took the number of the people who were with him, about six hundred men.
15 Então, se levantou Samuel e subiu de Gilgal a Gibeá de Benjamim; e Saul contou o povo que achou com ele, uns seiscentos varões.

16 And Saul, with Jonathan his son and the people who were with them, was waiting in Geba in the land of Benjamin: but the tents of the Philistines were in Michmash.
16 E Saul, e Jônatas, seu filho, e o povo que se achou com eles ficaram em Gibeá de Benjamim; porém os filisteus se acamparam em Micmás.

17 And three bands of men came out from the Philistines to make an attack; one band went by the road which goes to Ophrah, into the land of Shual:
17 E os destruidores saíram do campo dos filisteus em três companhias; uma das companhias voltou pelo caminho de Ofra à terra de Sual;

18 And another went in the direction of Beth-horon: and another went by the hill looking down on the valley of Zeboiim, in the direction of the waste land.
18 outra companhia voltou pelo caminho de Bete-Horom; e a outra companhia voltou pelo caminho do termo que olha para o vale Zeboim, contra o deserto.

19 Now there was no iron-worker in all the land of Israel: for the Philistines said, For fear the Hebrews make themselves swords or spears:
19 E em toda a terra de Israel nem um ferreiro se achava, porque os filisteus tinham dito: Para que os hebreus não façam espada nem lança.

20 But all the Israelites had to go to the Philistines to get their ploughs and blades and axes and hooks made sharp;
20 Pelo que todo o Israel tinha que descer aos filisteus para amolar cada um a sua relha, e a sua enxada, e o seu machado, e o seu sacho.

21 For they had instruments for putting an edge on their ploughs and blades and forks and axes, and for putting iron points on their ox-driving rods.
21 Tinham, porém, limas adentadas para os seus sachos, e para as suas enxadas, e para as forquinhas de três dentes, e para os machados, e para consertar as aguilhadas.

22 So on the day of the fight at Michmash, not a sword or a spear was to be seen in the hands of any of the people with Saul and Jonathan: only Saul and his son Jonathan had them.
22 E sucedeu que, no dia da peleja, se não achou nem espada, nem lança na mão de todo o povo que estava com Saul e com Jônatas; porém acharam-se com Saul e com Jônatas, seu filho.

23 And the armed force of the Philistines went out to the narrow way of Michmash.
23 E saiu a guarnição dos filisteus ao caminho de Micmás.

1 Samuel 14

1 Now one day Jonathan, the son of Saul, said to the young man who was with him, looking after his arms, Come, let us go over to the Philistine force over there. But he said nothing to his father.
1 Sucedeu, pois, que um dia disse Jônatas, filho de Saul, ao moço que lhe levava as armas: Vem, passemos à guarnição dos filisteus, que está lá daquela banda. Porém não o fez saber a seu pai.

2 And Saul was still waiting in the farthest part of Geba, under the fruit-tree in Migron: there were about six hundred men with him;
2 E estava Saul na extremidade de Gibeá, debaixo da romeira que estava em Migrom; e o povo que havia com ele eram uns seiscentos homens.

3 And Ahijah, the son of Ahitub, brother of Ichabod, the son of Phinehas, the son of Eli, the priest of the Lord in Shiloh, who had the ephod. And the people had no idea that Jonathan had gone.
3 E Aías, filho de Aitube, irmão de Icabô, filho de Finéias, filho de Eli, sacerdote do SENHOR em Siló, trazia o éfode; porém o povo não sabia que Jônatas tinha ido.

4 Now between the narrow roads over the mountains by which Jonathan was making his way to the Philistines’ forces, there was a sharp overhanging rock on one side, and a sharp rock on the other side: one was named Bozez and the other Seneh.
4 E, nas passagens pelas quais Jônatas procurava passar à guarnição dos filisteus, desta banda havia uma penha aguda, e da outra banda, uma penha aguda; e era o nome de uma Bozez; e o nome da outra, Sené.

5 The one rock went up on the north in front of Michmash and the other on the south in front of Geba.
5 Uma penha para o norte estava defronte de Micmás, e a outra para o sul, defronte de Gibeá.

6 And Jonathan said to his young servant who had his arms, Come, let us go over to the armies of these men who have no circumcision: it may be that the Lord will give us help, for there is no limit to his power; the Lord is able to give salvation by a great army or by a small band.
6 Disse, pois, Jônatas ao moço que lhe levava as armas: Vem, passemos à guarnição destes incircuncisos; porventura, operará o SENHOR por nós, porque para com o SENHOR nenhum impedimento há de livrar com muitos ou com poucos.

7 And his servant said to him, Do whatever is in your mind: see, I am with you in every impulse of your heart.
7 Então, o seu pajem de armas lhe disse: Faze tudo o que tens no coração; volta, eis-me aqui contigo, conforme o teu coração.

8 Then Jonathan said, Now we will go over to these men and let them see us.
8 Disse, pois, Jônatas: Eis que passaremos àqueles homens e nos descobriremos a eles.

9 If they say to us, Keep quiet where you are till we come to you; then we will keep our places and not go up to them.
9 Se nos disserem assim: Parai até que cheguemos a vós; então, ficaremos no nosso lugar e não subiremos a eles.

10 But if they say, Come up to us; then we will go up, for the Lord has given them into our hands: and this will be the sign to us.
10 Porém dizendo assim: Subi a nós; então, subiremos, pois o SENHOR os tem entregado na nossa mão, e isso nos será por sinal.

11 And they let the Philistine force see the two of them: and the Philistines said, Look! the Hebrews are coming out of the holes where they have taken cover.
11 Descobrindo-se ambos eles, pois, à guarnição dos filisteus, disseram os filisteus: Eis que já os hebreus saíram das cavernas em que se tinham escondido.

12 And the armed men of the force gave Jonathan and his servant their answer, saying, Come up here to us, and we will let you see something. Then Jonathan said to his servant, Come up after me: for the Lord has given them up into the hands of Israel.
12 E os homens da guarnição responderam a Jônatas e ao seu pajem de armas e disseram: Subi a nós, e nós vo-lo ensinaremos. E disse Jônatas ao seu pajem de armas: Sobe atrás de mim, porque o SENHOR os tem entregado na mão de Israel.

13 And Jonathan went up, gripping with his hands and his feet, his servant going up after him; and the Philistines gave way before Jonathan when he made an attack on them, and his servant put them to death after him.
13 Então, subiu Jônatas com os pés e com as mãos, e o seu pajem de armas atrás dele; e caíram diante de Jônatas, e o seu pajem de armas os matava atrás dele.

14 And at their first attack, Jonathan and his servant put to the sword about twenty men, all inside the space of half an acre of land.
14 E sucedeu esta primeira derrota, em que Jônatas e o seu pajem de armas feriram até uns vinte homens, quase no meio de uma jeira de terra que uma junta de bois podia lavrar.

15 And there was great fear in the tents and in the field and among all the men of the armed force, and the attackers were shaking with fear; even the earth was moved with a great shaking and there was a fear as from God.
15 E houve tremor no arraial, no campo e em todo o povo; também a mesma guarnição e os destruidores tremeram, e até a terra se alvoroçou, porquanto era tremor de Deus.

16 And the watchmen of Saul, looking out from Geba in the land of Benjamin, saw all the army flowing away and running here and there.
16 Olharam, pois, as sentinelas de Saul, em Gibeá de Benjamim, e eis que a multidão se derramava e fugia, batendo-se.

17 Then Saul said to the people who were with him, Let everyone be numbered and let us see who has gone from us. And when they had been numbered, it was seen that Jonathan and his servant were not there.
17 Disse, então, Saul ao povo que estava com ele: Ora, contai e vede quem é que saiu dentre nós. E contaram, e eis que nem Jônatas nem o seu pajem de armas estavam ali.

18 And Saul said to Ahijah, Let the ephod come here. For he went before Israel with the ephod at that time.
18 Então, Saul disse a Aías: Traze aqui a arca de Deus (porque, naquele dia, estava a arca de Deus com os filhos de Israel).

19 Now while Saul was talking to the priest, the noise in the tents of the Philistines became louder and louder; and Saul said to the priest, Take back your hand.
19 E sucedeu que, estando Saul ainda falando com o sacerdote, o alvoroço que havia no arraial dos filisteus ia crescendo muito e se multiplicava, pelo que disse Saul ao sacerdote: Retira a tua mão.

20 And Saul and all the people with him came together and went forward to the fight: and every man’s sword was turned against the man at his side, and there was a very great noise.
20 Então, Saul e todo o povo que havia com ele se ajuntaram e vieram à peleja; e eis que a espada de um era contra o outro, e houve mui grande tumulto.

21 Then the Hebrews who had been with the Philistines for some time, and had gone up with them to their tents, turning round were joined to those who were with Saul and Jonathan.
21 Também com os filisteus havia hebreus, como dantes, que subiram com eles ao arraial em redor; e também estes se ajuntaram com os israelitas que estavam com Saul e Jônatas.

22 And all the men of Israel who had taken cover in the hill-country of Ephraim, hearing that the Philistines had been put to flight, went after them, attacking them.
22 Ouvindo, pois, todos os homens de Israel que se esconderam pela montanha de Efraim que os filisteus fugiam, eles também os perseguiram de perto na peleja.

23 So the Lord made Israel safe that day: and the fight went over to Beth-aven.
23 Assim, livrou o SENHOR a Israel naquele dia; e o arraial passou a Bete-Áven.

24 And all the people were with Saul, about twenty thousand men, and the fight was general through all the hill-country of Ephraim; but Saul made a great error that day, by putting the people under an oath, saying, Let that man be cursed who takes food before evening comes and I have given punishment to those who are against me. So the people had not a taste of food.
24 E estavam os homens de Israel já exaustos naquele dia, porquanto Saul conjurara o povo, dizendo: Maldito o homem que comer pão até à tarde, para que me vingue de meus inimigos. Pelo que todo o povo se absteve de provar pão.

25 And there was honey on the face of the field, and all the people came to the honey, the bees having gone from it;
25 E todo o povo chegou a um bosque; e havia mel na superfície do campo.

26 But not a man put his hand to his mouth for fear of the curse.
26 E, chegando o povo ao bosque, eis que havia um manancial de mel; porém ninguém chegou a mão à boca, porque o povo temia a conjuração.

27 But Jonathan, having no knowledge of the oath his father had put on the people, stretching out the rod which was in his hand, put the end of it in the honey, and put it to his mouth; then his eyes were made bright.
27 Porém Jônatas não tinha ouvido quando seu pai conjurara o povo, e estendeu a ponta da vara que tinha na mão, e a molhou no favo de mel; e, tornando a mão à boca, aclararam-se os seus olhos.

28 Then one of the people said to him, Your father put the people under an oath, saying, Let that man be cursed who takes any food this day. And the people were feeble, needing food.
28 Então, respondeu um do povo e disse: Solenemente, conjurou teu pai o povo, dizendo: Maldito o homem que comer hoje pão. Pelo que o povo desfalecia.

29 Then Jonathan said, My father has made trouble come on the land: now see how bright my eyes have become because I have taken a little of this honey.
29 Então, disse Jônatas: Meu pai tem turbado a terra; ora, vede como se me aclararam os olhos por ter provado um pouco deste mel.

30 How much more if the people had freely taken their food from the goods of those who were fighting against them! would there not have been much greater destruction among the Philistines?
30 Quanto mais se o povo hoje livremente tivesse comido do despojo que achou de seus inimigos. Porém, agora, não foi tão grande o estrago dos filisteus.

31 That day they overcame the Philistines from Michmash to Aijalon: and the people were feeble from need of food.
31 Feriram, porém, aquele dia aos filisteus, desde Micmás até Aijalom; e o povo desfaleceu em extremo.

32 And rushing at the goods taken in the fight, the people took oxen and sheep and young oxen, and put them to death there on the earth, and had a meal, taking the flesh with the blood in it.
32 Então, o povo se lançou ao despojo, e tomaram ovelhas, e vacas, e bezerros e os degolaram no chão; e o povo os comeu com sangue.

33 Then it was said to Saul, See, the people are sinning against the Lord, taking the blood with the flesh. And he said to those who gave him the news, Now let a great stone be rolled to me here.
33 E o anunciaram a Saul, dizendo: Eis que o povo peca contra o SENHOR, comendo com sangue. E disse ele: Aleivosamente, procedestes; revolvei-me hoje uma grande pedra.

34 And Saul said, Go about among the people and say to them, Let every man come here to me with his ox and his sheep, and put them to death here, and take his meal: do no sin against the Lord by taking the blood with the flesh. So all the people took their oxen with them that night and put them to death there.
34 Disse mais Saul: Derramai-vos entre o povo e dizei-lhes: Trazei-me cada um o seu boi, e cada um a sua ovelha, e degolai-os aqui, e comei, e não pequeis contra o SENHOR, comendo com sangue. Então, todo o povo trouxe de noite, cada um com a sua mão, o seu boi, e os degolaram ali.

35 And Saul put up an altar to the Lord: this was the first altar which he put up to the Lord.
35 Então, edificou Saul um altar ao SENHOR; este foi o primeiro altar que edificou ao SENHOR.

36 And Saul said, Let us go down after the Philistines by night, attacking them till the morning, till there is not a man of them living. And they said, Do whatever seems right to you. Then the priest said, Let us come near to God.
36 Depois, disse Saul: Desçamos, de noite, atrás dos filisteus, e despojemo-los, até que amanheça a luz, e não deixemos de resto um homem deles. E disseram: Tudo o que parecer bem aos teus olhos faze. Disse, porém, o sacerdote: Cheguemo-nos aqui a Deus.

37 And Saul, desiring directions from God, said, Am I to go down after the Philistines? will you give them up into the hands of Israel? But he gave him no answer that day.
37 Então, consultou Saul a Deus, dizendo: Descerei atrás dos filisteus? Entregá-los-ás na mão de Israel? Porém aquele dia lhe não respondeu.

38 And Saul said, Come near, all you chiefs of the people, and let us get word from God and see in whom is this sin today.
38 Então, disse Saul: Chegai-vos para cá, todos os chefes do povo, e informai-vos, e vede em que se cometeu hoje este pecado.

39 For, by the living Lord, the saviour of Israel, even if the sinner is Jonathan, my son, death will certainly be his fate. But not a man among all the people gave him any answer.
39 Porque vive o SENHOR, que salva a Israel, que, ainda que seja em meu filho Jônatas, certamente morrerá. E nenhum de todo o povo lhe respondeu.

40 Then he said to all Israel, You be on one side, and I with Jonathan my son will be on the other side. And the people said to Saul, Do whatever seems good to you.
40 Disse mais a todo o Israel: Vós estareis de uma banda, e eu e meu filho Jônatas estaremos da outra banda. Então, disse o povo a Saul: Faze o que parecer bem aos teus olhos.

41 Then Saul said to the Lord, the God of Israel, Why have you not given me an answer today? If the sin is in me or in Jonathan my son, O Lord God of Israel, give Urim, and if it is in your people Israel, give Thummim. And by the decision of the Lord, Saul and Jonathan were marked out, and the people went free.
41 Falou, pois, Saul ao SENHOR, Deus de Israel: Mostra o inocente. Então, Jônatas e Saul foram tomados por sorte, e o povo saiu livre.

42 And Saul said, Give your decision between my son Jonathan and me. And Jonathan was taken.
42 Então, disse Saul: Lançai a sorte entre mim e Jônatas, meu filho. E foi tomado Jônatas.

43 Then Saul said to Jonathan, Give me an account of what you have done. And Jonathan gave him the story and said, Certainly I took a little honey on the end of my rod; and now death is to be my fate.
43 Disse, então, Saul a Jônatas: Declara-me o que tens feito. E Jônatas lho declarou e disse: Tão-somente provei um pouco de mel com a ponta da vara que tinha na mão; eis que devo morrer?

44 And Saul said, May God’s punishment be on me if death is not your fate, Jonathan.
44 Então, disse Saul: Assim me faça Deus e outro tanto, que com certeza morrerás, Jônatas.

45 And the people said to Saul, Is death to come to Jonathan, the worker of this great salvation for Israel? Let it not be so: by the living Lord, not one hair of his head is to be touched, for he has been working with God today. So the people kept Jonathan from death.
45 Porém o povo disse a Saul: Morrerá Jônatas, que efetuou tão grande salvação em Israel? Nunca tal suceda. Vive o SENHOR, que não lhe há de cair no chão um só cabelo da sua cabeça! Pois com Deus fez isso, hoje. Assim, o povo livrou a Jônatas, para que não morresse.

46 Then Saul, turning back, went after the Philistines no longer: and the Philistines went back to their place.
46 E Saul deixou de seguir os filisteus, e os filisteus se foram ao seu lugar.

47 Now when Saul had taken his place as ruler of Israel, he made war on those who were against him on every side, Moab and the Ammonites and Edom and the kings of Zobah and the Philistines: and whichever way he went, he overcame them.
47 Então, tomou Saul o reino sobre Israel e pelejou contra todos os seus inimigos em redor: contra Moabe, e contra os filhos de Amom, e contra Edom, e contra os reis de Zobá, e contra os filisteus; e, para onde quer que se voltava, executava castigos.

48 And he did great things, and overcame the Amalekites, and made Israel safe from the hands of their attackers.
48 E houve-se valorosamente, e feriu aos amalequitas, e libertou a Israel da mão dos que o saqueavam.

49 Now the sons of Saul were Jonathan and Ishvi and Malchi-shua; and these are the names of his daughters: the older was named Merab and the younger Michal;
49 E os filhos de Saul eram Jônatas, e Isvi, e Malquisua; e os nomes de suas duas filhas eram estes: o nome da mais velha, Merabe, e o nome da mais nova, Mical.

50 The name of Saul’s wife was Ahinoam, the daughter of Ahimaaz; the captain of his army was Abner, the son of Ner, brother of Saul’s father.
50 E o nome da mulher de Saul, Ainoã, filha de Aimaás; e o nome do general do exército, Abner, filho de Ner, tio de Saul.

51 Kish, the father of Saul, and Ner, the father of Abner, were sons of Abiel.
51 E Quis, pai de Saul, e Ner, pai de Abner, eram filhos de Abiel.

52 All through the life of Saul there was bitter war against the Philistines; and whenever Saul saw any strong man or any good fighting man, he kept him near himself.
52 E houve uma forte guerra contra os filisteus, todos os dias de Saul; pelo que Saul, a todos os homens valentes e valorosos que via, os agregava a si.

1 Samuel 15

1 And Samuel said to Saul, The Lord sent me to put the holy oil on you and to make you king over his people, over Israel: so give ear now to the words of the Lord.
1 Então, disse Samuel a Saul: Enviou-me o SENHOR a ungir-te rei sobre o seu povo, sobre Israel; ouve, pois, agora a voz das palavras do SENHOR.

2 The Lord of armies says, I will give punishment to Amalek for what he did to Israel, fighting against him on the way when Israel came out of Egypt.
2 Assim diz o SENHOR dos Exércitos: Eu me recordei do que fez Amaleque a Israel; como se lhe opôs no caminho, quando subia do Egito.

3 Go now and put Amalek to the sword, putting to the curse all they have, without mercy: put to death every man and woman, every child and baby at the breast, every ox and sheep, camel and ass.
3 Vai, pois, agora, e fere a Amaleque, e destrói totalmente tudo o que tiver, e não lhe perdoes; porém matarás desde o homem até à mulher, desde os meninos até aos de peito, desde os bois até às ovelhas e desde os camelos até aos jumentos.

4 And Saul sent for the people and had them numbered in Telaim, two hundred thousand footmen and ten thousand men of Judah.
4 E Saul convocou o povo e os contou em Telaim: duzentos mil homens de pé e dez mil homens de Judá.

5 And Saul came to the town of Amalek, and took up his position in the valley secretly.
5 Chegando, pois, Saul à cidade de Amaleque, pôs emboscada no vale.

6 And Saul said to the Kenites, Go away, take yourselves out from among the Amalekites, or destruction will overtake you with them: for you were kind to the children of Israel when they came out of Egypt. So the Kenites went away from among the Amalekites.
6 E disse Saul aos queneus: Ide-vos, retirai-vos e saí do meio dos amalequitas, para que vos não destrua juntamente com eles, porque vós usastes de misericórdia com todos os filhos de Israel, quando subiram do Egito. Assim, os queneus se retiraram do meio dos amalequitas.

7 And Saul made an attack on the Amalekites from Havilah on the road to Shur, which is before Egypt.
7 Então, feriu Saul os amalequitas, desde Havilá até chegar a Sur, que está defronte do Egito.

8 He took Agag, king of the Amalekites, prisoner, and put all the people to the sword without mercy.
8 E tomou vivo a Agague, rei dos amalequitas; porém a todo o povo destruiu a fio de espada.

9 But Saul and the people did not put Agag to death, and they kept the best of the sheep and the oxen and the fat beasts and the lambs, and whatever was good, not desiring to put them to the curse: but everything which was bad and of no use they put to the curse.
9 E Saul e o povo perdoaram a Agague, e ao melhor das ovelhas e das vacas, e às da segunda sorte, e aos cordeiros, e ao melhor que havia e não os quiseram destruir totalmente; porém a toda coisa vil e desprezível destruíram totalmente.

10 Then the Lord said to Samuel,
10 Então, veio a palavra do SENHOR a Samuel, dizendo:

11 It is no longer my pleasure for Saul to be king; for he is turned back from going in my ways, and has not done my orders. And Samuel was very sad, crying to the Lord in prayer all night.
11 Arrependo-me de haver posto a Saul como rei; porquanto deixou de me seguir e não executou as minhas palavras. Então, Samuel se contristou e toda a noite clamou ao SENHOR.

12 And early in the morning he got up and went to Saul; and word was given to Samuel that Saul had come to Carmel and put up a pillar, and had gone from there down to Gilgal.
12 E madrugou Samuel para encontrar a Saul pela manhã; e anunciou-se a Samuel, dizendo: Já chegou Saul ao Carmelo, e eis que levantou para si uma coluna. Então, fez volta, e passou, e desceu a Gilgal.

13 And Samuel came to Saul; and Saul said to him, May the blessing of the Lord be with you: I have done what was ordered by the Lord.
13 Veio, pois, Samuel a Saul; e Saul lhe disse: Bendito sejas tu do SENHOR; executei a palavra do SENHOR.

14 And Samuel said, What then is this sound of the crying of sheep and the noise of oxen which comes to my ears?
14 Então, disse Samuel: Que balido, pois, de ovelhas é este nos meus ouvidos, e o mugido de vacas que ouço?

15 And Saul said, They have taken them from the Amalekites: for the people have kept the best of the sheep and of the oxen as an offering to the Lord your God; all the rest we have given up to destruction.
15 E disse Saul: De Amaleque as trouxeram; porque o povo perdoou ao melhor das ovelhas e das vacas, para as oferecer ao SENHOR, teu Deus; o resto, porém, temos destruído totalmente.

16 Then Samuel said to Saul, Say no more! Let me give you word of what the Lord has said to me this night. And he said to him, Say on.
16 Então, disse Samuel a Saul: Espera, e te declararei o que o SENHOR me disse esta noite. E ele disse-lhe: Fala.

17 And Samuel said, Though you may seem little to yourself, are you not head of the tribes of Israel? for the Lord with the holy oil made you king over Israel,
17 E disse Samuel: Porventura, sendo tu pequeno aos teus olhos, não foste por cabeça das tribos de Israel? E o SENHOR te ungiu rei sobre Israel.

18 And the Lord sent you on a journey and said, Go and put to the curse those sinners, the Amalekites, fighting against them till every one is dead.
18 E enviou-te o SENHOR a este caminho e disse: Vai, e destrói totalmente a estes pecadores, os amalequitas, e peleja contra eles, até que os aniquiles.

19 Why then did you not do the orders of the Lord, but by violently taking their goods did evil in the eyes of the Lord?
19 Por que, pois, não deste ouvidos à voz do SENHOR? Antes, voaste ao despojo e fizeste o que era mal aos olhos do SENHOR.

20 And Saul said, Truly, I have done the orders of the Lord and have gone the way the Lord sent me; I have taken Agag, the king of Amalek, and have given the Amalekites up to destruction.
20 Então, disse Saul a Samuel: Antes, dei ouvidos à voz do SENHOR e caminhei no caminho pelo qual o SENHOR me enviou; e trouxe a Agague, rei de Amaleque, e os amalequitas destruí totalmente;

21 But the people took some of their goods, sheep and oxen, the chief of the things which were put to the curse, to make an offering of them to the Lord your God in Gilgal.
21 mas o povo tomou do despojo ovelhas e vacas, o melhor do interdito, para oferecer ao SENHOR, teu Deus, em Gilgal.

22 And Samuel said, Has the Lord as much delight in offerings and burned offerings as in the doing of his orders? Truly, to do his pleasure is better than to make offerings, and to give ear to him than the fat of sheep.
22 Porém Samuel disse: Tem, porventura, o SENHOR tanto prazer em holocaustos e sacrifícios como em que se obedeça à palavra do SENHOR? Eis que o obedecer é melhor do que o sacrificar; e o atender melhor é do que a gordura de carneiros.

23 For to go against his orders is like the sin of those who make use of secret arts, and pride is like giving worship to images. Because you have put away from you the word of the Lord, he has put you from your place as king.
23 Porque a rebelião é como o pecado de feitiçaria, e o porfiar é como iniqüidade e idolatria. Porquanto tu rejeitaste a palavra do SENHOR, ele também te rejeitou a ti, para que não sejas rei.

24 And Saul said to Samuel, Great is my sin: for I have gone against the orders of the Lord and against your words: because, fearing the people, I did what they said.
24 Então, disse Saul a Samuel: Pequei, porquanto tenho traspassado o dito do SENHOR e as tuas palavras; porque temi o povo e dei ouvidos à sua voz.

25 So now, let my sin have forgiveness, and go back with me to give worship to the Lord.
25 Agora, pois, te rogo, perdoa-me o meu pecado e volta comigo, para que adore o SENHOR.

26 And Samuel said to Saul, I will not go back with you: for you have put away from you the word of the Lord, and the Lord has put you from your place as king over Israel.
26 Porém Samuel disse a Saul: Não tornarei contigo; porquanto rejeitaste a palavra do SENHOR, já te rejeitou o SENHOR, para que não sejas rei sobre Israel.

27 And when Samuel was turning round to go away, Saul took the skirt of his robe in his hand, and the cloth came away.
27 E, virando-se Samuel para se ir, ele lhe pegou pela borda da capa e a rasgou.

28 And Samuel said to him, The Lord has taken away the kingdom of Israel from you this day by force, and has given it to a neighbour of yours who is better than you.
28 Então, Samuel lhe disse: O SENHOR tem rasgado de ti hoje o reino de Israel e o tem dado ao teu próximo, melhor do que tu.

29 And further, the Glory of Israel will not say what is false, and his purpose may not be changed: for he is not a man, whose purpose may be changed.
29 E também aquele que é a Força de Israel não mente nem se arrepende; porquanto não é um homem, para que se arrependa.

30 Then he said, Great is my sin: but still, give me honour now before the heads of my people and before Israel, and come back with me so that I may give worship to the Lord your God.
30 Disse ele então: Pequei; honra-me, porém, agora diante dos anciãos do meu povo e diante de Israel; e volta comigo, para que adore o SENHOR, teu Deus.

31 So Samuel went back after Saul, and Saul gave worship to the Lord.
31 Então, Samuel se tornou atrás de Saul, e Saul adorou ao SENHOR.

32 Then Samuel said, Make Agag, the king of the Amalekites, come here to me. And Agag came to him shaking with fear. And Agag said, Truly the pain of death is past.
32 Então, disse Samuel: Trazei-me aqui Agague, rei dos amalequitas. E Agague veio a ele animosamente; e disse Agague: Na verdade, já passou a amargura da morte.

33 And Samuel said, As your sword has made women without children, so now your mother will be without children among women. And Agag was cut up by Samuel, bone from bone, before the Lord in Gilgal.
33 Disse, porém, Samuel: Assim como a tua espada desfilhou as mulheres, assim ficará desfilhada a tua mãe entre as mulheres. Então, Samuel despedaçou Agague perante o SENHOR, em Gilgal.

34 Then Samuel went to Ramah; and Saul went up to his house in Gibeah, in the land of Saul.
34 Então, Samuel se foi a Ramá; e Saul subiu à sua casa, a Gibeá de Saul.

35 And Samuel never saw Saul again till the day of his death; but Samuel was sorrowing for Saul: and it was no longer the Lord’s pleasure for Saul to be king over Israel.
35 E nunca mais viu Samuel a Saul até ao dia da sua morte; porque Samuel teve dó de Saul. E o SENHOR se arrependeu de que pusera a Saul rei sobre Israel.

1 Samuel 16

1 And the Lord said to Samuel, How long will you go on sorrowing for Saul, seeing that I have put him from his place as king over Israel? Take oil in your vessel and go; I will send you to Jesse, the Beth-lehemite: for I have got a king for myself among his sons.
1 Então, disse o SENHOR a Samuel: Até quando terás dó de Saul, havendo-o eu rejeitado, para que não reine sobre Israel? Enche o teu vaso de azeite e vem; enviar-te-ei a Jessé, o belemita; porque dentre os seus filhos me tenho provido de um rei.

2 And Samuel said, How is it possible for me to go? If Saul gets news of it he will put me to death. And the Lord said, Take a young cow with you and say, I have come to make an offering to the Lord.
2 Porém disse Samuel: Como irei eu? Pois, ouvindo-o Saul, me matará. Então, disse o SENHOR: Toma uma bezerra das vacas em tuas mãos e dize: Vim para sacrificar ao SENHOR.

3 And send for Jesse to be present at the offering, and I will make clear to you what you are to do: and you are to put the holy oil on him whose name I give you.
3 E convidarás Jessé ao sacrifício; e eu te farei saber o que hás de fazer, e ungir-me-ás a quem eu te disser.

4 And Samuel did as the Lord said and came to Beth-lehem. And the responsible men of the town came out to him in fear and said, Do you come in peace?
4 Fez, pois, Samuel o que dissera o SENHOR e veio a Belém. Então, os anciãos da cidade saíram ao encontro, tremendo, e disseram: De paz é a tua vinda?

5 And he said, In peace: I have come to make an offering to the Lord: make yourselves clean and come with me to make the offering. And he made Jesse and his sons clean, and sent for them to be present at the offering.
5 E disse ele: É de paz; vim sacrificar ao SENHOR. Santificai-vos e vinde comigo ao sacrifício. E santificou ele a Jessé e os seus filhos e os convidou ao sacrifício.

6 Now when they came, looking at Eliab, he said, Clearly the man of the Lord’s selection is before him.
6 E sucedeu que, entrando eles, viu a Eliabe e disse: Certamente, está perante o SENHOR o seu ungido.

7 But the Lord said to Samuel, Do not take note of his face or how tall he is, because I will not have him: for the Lord’s view is not man’s; man takes note of the outer form, but the Lord sees the heart.
7 Porém o SENHOR disse a Samuel: Não atentes para a sua aparência, nem para a altura da sua estatura, porque o tenho rejeitado; porque o SENHOR não vê como vê o homem. Pois o homem vê o que está diante dos olhos, porém o SENHOR olha para o coração.

8 Then Jesse sent for Abinadab and made him come before Samuel. And he said, The Lord has not taken this one.
8 Então, chamou Jessé a Abinadabe e o fez passar diante de Samuel, o qual disse: Nem a este tem escolhido o SENHOR.

9 Then Jesse made Shammah come before him. And he said, The Lord has not taken this one.
9 Então, Jessé fez passar a Samá, porém disse: Tampouco a este tem escolhido o SENHOR.

10 And Jesse made his seven sons come before Samuel. And Samuel said to Jesse, The Lord has not taken any of these.
10 Assim, fez passar Jessé os seus sete filhos diante de Samuel; porém Samuel disse a Jessé: O SENHOR não tem escolhido estes.

11 Then Samuel said to Jesse, Are all your children here? And he said, There is still the youngest, and he is looking after the sheep. And Samuel said to Jesse, Send and make him come here: for we will not take our seats till he is here.
11 Disse mais Samuel a Jessé: Acabaram-se os jovens? E disse: Ainda falta o menor, e eis que apascenta as ovelhas. Disse, pois, Samuel a Jessé: Envia e manda-o chamar, porquanto não nos assentaremos em roda da mesa até que ele venha aqui.

12 So he sent and made him come in. Now he had red hair and beautiful eyes and pleasing looks. And the Lord said, Come, put the oil on him, for this is he.
12 Então, mandou em busca dele e o trouxe (e era ruivo, e formoso de semblante, e de boa presença). E disse o SENHOR: Levanta-te e unge-o, porque este mesmo é.

13 Then Samuel took the bottle of oil, and put the oil on him there among his brothers: and from that day the spirit of the Lord came on David with power. So Samuel went back to Ramah.
13 Então, Samuel tomou o vaso do azeite e ungiu-o no meio dos seus irmãos; e, desde aquele dia em diante, o Espírito do SENHOR se apoderou de Davi. Então, Samuel se levantou e se tornou a Ramá.

14 Now the spirit of the Lord had gone from Saul, and an evil spirit from the Lord was troubling him.
14 E o Espírito do SENHOR se retirou de Saul, e o assombrava um espírito mau, da parte do SENHOR.

15 And Saul’s servants said to him, See now, an evil spirit from God is troubling you.
15 Então, os criados de Saul lhe disseram: Eis que agora um espírito mau, da parte do Senhor, te assombra.

16 Now give orders to your servants who are here before you to go in search of a man who is an expert player on a corded instrument: and it will be that when the evil spirit from God is on you, he will make music for you on his instrument, and you will get well.
16 Diga, pois, nosso senhor a seus servos, que estão em tua presença, que busquem um homem que saiba tocar harpa; e será que, quando o espírito mau, da parte do SENHOR, vier sobre ti, então, ele tocará com a sua mão, e te acharás melhor.

17 And Saul said to his servants, Then get me a man who is an expert player, and make him come to me.
17 Então, disse Saul aos seus servos: Buscai-me, pois, um homem que toque bem e trazei-mo.

18 Then one of the servants in answer said, I have seen a son of Jesse, the Beth-lehemite, who is expert at playing, and a strong man and a man of war; and he is wise in his words, and pleasing in looks, and the Lord is with him.
18 Então, respondeu um dos jovens e disse: Eis que tenho visto um filho de Jessé, o belemita, que sabe tocar e é valente, e animoso, e homem de guerra, e sisudo em palavras, e de gentil presença; o SENHOR é com ele.

19 So Saul sent his servants to Jesse and said, Send me your son David who is with the sheep.
19 E Saul enviou mensageiros a Jessé, dizendo: Envia-me Davi, teu filho, o que está com as ovelhas.

20 And Jesse took five cakes of bread and a skin of wine and a young goat and sent them to Saul by David.
20 Então, tomou Jessé um jumento carregado de pão, e um odre de vinho, e um cabrito e enviou-os a Saul pela mão de Davi, seu filho.

21 And David came to Saul, waiting before him: and he became very dear to Saul, who made him his servant, giving him the care of his arms.
21 Assim, Davi veio a Saul, e esteve perante ele, e o amou muito; e foi seu pajem de armas.

22 And Saul sent to Jesse saying, Let David be with me, for he is pleasing to me.
22 Então, Saul mandou dizer a Jessé: Deixa estar Davi perante mim, pois achou graça a meus olhos.

23 And whenever the evil spirit from God came on Saul, David took his instrument and made music: so new life came to Saul, and he got well, and the evil spirit went away from him.
23 E sucedia que, quando o espírito mau, da parte de Deus, vinha sobre Saul, Davi tomava a harpa e a tocava com a sua mão; então, Saul sentia alívio e se achava melhor, e o espírito mau se retirava dele.

1 Samuel 17

1 Now the Philistines got their armies together for war, and came together at Socoh in the land of Judah, and took up their position between Socoh and Azekah in Ephes-dammim.
1 E os filisteus ajuntaram os seus arraiais para a guerra, e congregaram-se em Socó, que está em Judá, e acamparam-se entre Socó e Azeca, no termo de Damim.

2 And Saul and the men of Israel came together and took up their position in the valley of Elah, and put their forces in order against the Philistines.
2 Porém Saul e os homens de Israel se ajuntaram, e acamparam no vale do Carvalho, e ordenaram a batalha contra os filisteus.

3 The Philistines were stationed on the mountain on one side and Israel on the mountain on the other side: and there was a valley between them.
3 E os filisteus estavam num monte da banda dalém, e os israelitas estavam no outro monte da banda daquém; e o vale estava entre eles.

4 And a fighter came out from the tents of the Philistines, named Goliath of Gath; he was more than six cubits tall.
4 Então, saiu do arraial dos filisteus um homem guerreiro, cujo nome era Golias, de Gate, que tinha de altura seis côvados e um palmo.

5 And he had a head-dress of brass on his head, and he was dressed in a coat of metal, the weight of which was five thousand shekels of brass.
5 Trazia na cabeça um capacete de bronze e vestia uma couraça de escamas; e era o peso da couraça de cinco mil siclos de bronze.

6 His legs were covered with plates of brass and hanging on his back was a javelin of brass.
6 E trazia grevas de bronze por cima de seus pés e um escudo de bronze entre os seus ombros.

7 The stem of his spear was as long as a cloth-worker’s rod, and its head was made of six hundred shekels’ weight of iron: and one went before him with his body-cover.
7 E a haste da sua lança era como eixo de tecelão, e o ferro da sua lança, de seiscentos siclos de ferro; e diante dele ia o escudeiro.

8 He took up his position and in a loud voice said to the armies of Israel, Why have you come out to make war? Am I not a Philistine and you servants of Saul? Send out a man for yourselves and let him come down to me.
8 E parou, e clamou às companhias de Israel, e disse-lhes: Para que saireis a ordenar a batalha? Não sou eu filisteu, e vós, servos de Saul? Escolhei dentre vós um homem que desça a mim.

9 If he is able to have a fight with me and overcome me, then we will be your servants: but if I am able to overcome him, then you will be our servants and do work for us.
9 Se ele puder pelejar comigo e me ferir, seremos vossos servos; porém, se eu o vencer e o ferir, então, sereis nossos servos e nos servireis.

10 And the Philistine said, I have put to shame the armies of Israel this day; give me a man so that we may have a fight together.
10 Disse mais o filisteu: Hoje, desafio as companhias de Israel, dizendo: Dai-me um homem, para que ambos pelejemos.

11 And Saul and all Israel, hearing those words of the Philistine, were troubled and full of fear.
11 Ouvindo, então, Saul e todo o Israel essas palavras do filisteu, espantaram-se e temeram muito.

12 Now David was the son of that Ephrathite of Beth-lehem-judah named Jesse, who had eight sons; and he was an old man in Saul’s day, and far on in years.
12 E Davi era filho de um homem, efrateu, de Belém de Judá, cujo nome era Jessé, que tinha oito filhos; e, nos dias de Saul, era este homem já velho e adiantado na idade entre os homens.

13 And the three oldest sons of Jesse had gone with Saul to the fight: the names of the three who went to the fight were Eliab, the oldest, and Abinadab the second, and Shammah the third.
13 Foram-se os três filhos mais velhos de Jessé e seguiram a Saul à guerra; e eram os nomes de seus três filhos, que foram à guerra, Eliabe, o primogênito, e o segundo, Abinadabe, e o terceiro, Samá.

14 And David was the youngest: and the three oldest were with Saul’s army.
14 E Davi era o menor; e os três maiores seguiram a Saul.

15 Now David went to and from Saul, looking after his father’s sheep at Beth-lehem.
15 Davi, porém, ia e voltava de Saul, para apascentar as ovelhas de seu pai, em Belém.

16 And the Philistine came near every morning and evening for forty days.
16 Chegava-se, pois, o filisteu pela manhã e à tarde; e apresentou-se por quarenta dias.

17 And Jesse said to his son David, Take now for your brothers an ephah of this dry grain and these ten cakes of bread, and go quickly with them to the tents to your brothers;
17 E disse Jessé a Davi, seu filho: Toma, peço-te, para teus irmãos um efa deste grão tostado e estes dez pães e corre a levá-los ao arraial, a teus irmãos.

18 And take these ten cheeses to the captain of their thousand, and see how your brothers are and come back with a sign to say how they are.
18 Porém estes dez queijos de leite leva ao chefe de mil; e visitarás teus irmãos, a ver se lhes vai bem; e tomarás o seu penhor.

19 Now Saul, and they, and all the men of Israel were in the valley of Elah, fighting with the Philistines.
19 E estavam Saul, e eles, e todos os homens de Israel no vale do Carvalho, pelejando com os filisteus.

20 And David got up early in the morning, and, giving the sheep into the care of a keeper, took the things and went as Jesse had said; and he came to the lines where the carts were, when the army was going out to the fight giving their war-cry.
20 Davi, então, se levantou pela manhã, bem cedo, e deixou as ovelhas a um guarda, e carregou-se, e partiu, como Jessé lhe ordenara; e chegou ao lugar dos carros, quando já o arraial saía em ordem de batalha, e, a gritos, chamavam à peleja.

21 And Israel and the Philistines had put their forces in position, army against army.
21 E os israelitas e filisteus se puseram em ordem, fileira contra fileira.

22 And David gave his parcels into the hands of the keeper of the army stores, and went running to the army and came to his brothers to get knowledge about them.
22 E Davi deixou a carga que trouxera na mão do guarda da bagagem e correu à batalha; e, chegando, perguntou a seus irmãos se estavam bem.

23 And while he was talking to them, the fighter, the Philistine of Gath, Goliath by name, came out from the Philistines’ lines and said the same words, in David’s hearing.
23 E, estando ele ainda falando com eles, eis que vinha subindo do exército dos filisteus o homem guerreiro, cujo nome era Golias, o filisteu de Gate, e falou conforme aquelas palavras, e Davi as ouviu.

24 And all the men of Israel, when they saw him, went in flight, overcome with fear.
24 Porém todos os homens de Israel, vendo aquele homem, fugiam de diante dele, e temiam grandemente,

25 And the men of Israel said, Have you seen this man? Clearly he has come out to put shame on Israel: and it is certain that if any man overcomes him, the king will give that man great wealth, and will give him his daughter, and make his father’s family free in Israel.
25 e diziam os homens de Israel: Vistes aquele homem que subiu? Pois subiu para afrontar a Israel. Há de ser, pois, que ao homem que o ferir o rei o enriquecerá de grandes riquezas, e lhe dará a sua filha, e fará isenta de impostos a casa de seu pai em Israel.

26 And David said to the men near him, What will be done to the man who overcomes this Philistine and takes away the shame from Israel? for who is this Philistine, a man without circumcision, that he has put shame on the armies of the living God?
26 Então, falou Davi aos homens que estavam com ele, dizendo: Que farão àquele homem que ferir a este filisteu e tirar a afronta de sobre Israel? Quem é, pois, este incircunciso filisteu, para afrontar os exércitos do Deus vivo?

27 And the people gave him this answer, So it will be done to the man who overcomes him.
27 E o povo lhe tornou a falar conforme aquela palavra, dizendo: Assim farão ao homem que o ferir.

28 And Eliab, his oldest brother, hearing what David said to the men, was moved to wrath against David, and said, Why have you come here? Into whose care have you given that little flock of sheep in the waste land? I have knowledge of your pride and the evil of your heart, you have come down to see the fight.
28 E, ouvindo Eliabe, seu irmão mais velho, falar àqueles homens, acendeu-se a ira de Eliabe contra Davi, e disse: Por que desceste aqui? E a quem deixaste aquelas poucas ovelhas no deserto? Bem conheço a tua presunção e a maldade do teu coração, que desceste para ver a peleja.

29 And David said, What have I done now? was it not only a word?
29 Então, disse Davi: Que fiz eu agora? Porventura, não há razão para isso?

30 And turning away from him to one of the other men, he said the same words: and the people gave him the same answer.
30 E desviou-se dele para outro e falou conforme aquela palavra; e o povo lhe tornou a responder conforme as primeiras palavras.

31 And, hearing what David said, they gave Saul word of it: and he sent for him.
31 E, ouvidas as palavras que Davi havia falado, as anunciaram a Saul, e mandou em busca dele.

32 And David said to Saul, Let no man’s heart become feeble because of him; I, your servant, will go out and have a fight with this Philistine.
32 E Davi disse a Saul: Não desfaleça o coração de ninguém por causa dele; teu servo irá e pelejará contra este filisteu.

33 And Saul said to David, You are not able to go out against this Philistine and have a fight with him: for you are only a boy, and he has been a man of war from his earliest days.
33 Porém Saul disse a Davi: Contra este filisteu não poderás ir para pelejar com ele; pois tu ainda és moço, e ele, homem de guerra desde a sua mocidade.

34 And David said to Saul, Your servant has been keeper of his father’s sheep; and if a lion or a bear came and took a lamb from the flock,
34 Então, disse Davi a Saul: Teu servo apascentava as ovelhas de seu pai; e vinha um leão ou um urso e tomava uma ovelha do rebanho,

35 I went out after him, and overcame him, and took it out of his mouth: and if, turning on me, he came at me, I took him by the hair and overcame him and put him to death.
35 e eu saía após ele, e o feria, e a livrava da sua boca; e, levantando-se ele contra mim, lançava-lhe mão da barba, e o feria, e o matava.

36 Your servant has overcome lion and bear: and the fate of this Philistine, who is without circumcision, will be like theirs, seeing that he has put shame on the armies of the living God.
36 Assim, feria o teu servo o leão como o urso; assim será este incircunciso filisteu como um deles; porquanto afrontou os exércitos do Deus vivo.

37 And David said, The Lord, who kept me safe from the grip of the lion and the bear, will be my saviour from the hands of this Philistine. And Saul said to David, Go! and may the Lord be with you.
37 Disse mais Davi: O SENHOR me livrou da mão do leão e da do urso; ele me livrará da mão deste filisteu. Então, disse Saul a Davi: Vai-te embora, e o SENHOR seja contigo.

38 Then Saul gave David his clothing of war, and put a head-dress of brass on his head and had him clothed with a coat of metal.
38 E Saul vestiu a Davi das suas vestes, e pôs-lhe sobre a cabeça um capacete de bronze, e o vestiu de uma couraça.

39 And David took Saul’s sword and put the band round him over the metal coat, and was unable to go forward; for he was not used to them. Then David said to Saul, It is not possible for me to go out with these, for I am not used to them. So David took them off.
39 E Davi cingiu a espada sobre as suas vestes e começou a andar; porém nunca o havia experimentado; então, disse Davi a Saul: Não posso andar com isto, pois nunca o experimentei. E Davi tirou aquilo de sobre si.

40 Then he took his stick in his hand, and got five smooth stones from the bed of the stream and put them in a bag such as is used by sheep-keepers; and in his hand was a leather band used for sending stones: and so he went in the direction of the Philistine.
40 E tomou o seu cajado na mão, e escolheu para si cinco seixos do ribeiro, e pô-los no alforje de pastor, que trazia, a saber, no surrão; e lançou mão da sua funda e foi-se chegando ao filisteu.

41 And the Philistine came nearer to David; and the man who had his body-cover went before him.
41 O filisteu também veio e se vinha chegando a Davi; e o que lhe levava o escudo ia diante dele.

42 And when the Philistine, taking note, saw David, he had a poor opinion of him: for he was only a boy, red-haired and good-looking.
42 E, olhando o filisteu e vendo a Davi, o desprezou, porquanto era jovem ruivo e de gentil aspecto.

43 And the Philistine said to David, Am I a dog, that you come out to me with sticks? And the Philistine put curses on David by all his gods.
43 Disse, pois, o filisteu a Davi: Sou eu algum cão, para tu vires a mim com paus? E o filisteu amaldiçoou a Davi, pelos seus deuses.

44 And the Philistine said to David, Come here to me, and I will give your flesh to the birds of the air and the beasts of the field.
44 Disse mais o filisteu a Davi: Vem a mim, e darei a tua carne às aves do céu e às bestas do campo.

45 Then David said to the Philistine, You come to me with a sword and a spear and a javelin: but I come to you in the name of the Lord of armies, the God of the armies of Israel on which you have put shame.
45 Davi, porém, disse ao filisteu: Tu vens a mim com espada, e com lança, e com escudo; porém eu vou a ti em nome do SENHOR dos Exércitos, o Deus dos exércitos de Israel, a quem tens afrontado.

46 This day the Lord will give you up into my hands, and I will overcome you, and take your head off you; and I will give the bodies of the Philistine army to the birds of the air and the beasts of the earth today, so that all the earth may see that Israel has a God;
46 Hoje mesmo o SENHOR te entregará na minha mão; e ferir-te-ei, e te tirarei a cabeça, e os corpos do arraial dos filisteus darei hoje mesmo às aves do céu e às bestas da terra; e toda a terra saberá que há Deus em Israel.

47 And all these people who are here today may see that the Lord does not give salvation by sword and spear: for the fight is the Lord’s, and he will give you up into our hands.
47 E saberá toda esta congregação que o SENHOR salva, não com espada, nem com lança; porque do SENHOR é a guerra, e ele vos entregará na nossa mão.

48 Now when the Philistine made a move and came near to David, David quickly went at a run in the direction of the army, meeting the Philistine face to face.
48 E sucedeu que, levantando-se o filisteu e indo encontrar-se com Davi, apressou-se Davi e correu ao combate, a encontrar-se com o filisteu.

49 And David put his hand in his bag and took out a stone and sent it from his leather band straight at the Philistine, and the stone went deep into his brow, and he went down to the earth, falling on his face.
49 E Davi meteu a mão no alforje, e tomou dali uma pedra, e com a funda lha atirou, e feriu o filisteu na testa; e a pedra se lhe cravou na testa, e caiu sobre o seu rosto em terra.

50 So David overcame the Philistine with his leather band and a stone, wounding the Philistine and causing his death: but David had no sword in his hand.
50 Assim, Davi prevaleceu contra o filisteu, com uma funda e com uma pedra, e feriu o filisteu, e o matou sem que Davi tivesse uma espada na mão.

51 So running up to the Philistine and putting his foot on him, David took his sword out of its cover, and put him to death, cutting off his head with it. And when the Philistines saw that their fighter was dead, they went in flight.
51 Pelo que correu Davi, e pôs-se em pé sobre o filisteu, e tomou a sua espada, e tirou-a da bainha; e o matou e lhe cortou com ela a cabeça; vendo, então, os filisteus que o seu campeão era morto, fugiram.

52 And the men of Israel and of Judah got up, and gave a cry, and went after the Philistines as far as Gath and the town doors of Ekron. And the wounded of the Philistines were falling down by the road from Shaaraim all the way to Gath and Ekron.
52 Então, os homens de Israel e Judá se levantaram, e jubilaram, e seguiram os filisteus, até chegar ao vale e até às portas de Ecrom; e caíram os feridos dos filisteus pelo caminho, de Saaraim até Gate e até Ecrom.

53 Then the children of Israel came back from going after the Philistines, and took their goods from the tents.
53 Então, voltaram os filhos de Israel de perseguirem os filisteus e despojaram os seus arraiais.

54 And David took the head of the Philistine to Jerusalem, but the metal war-dress and the arms he put in his tent.
54 E Davi tomou a cabeça do filisteu e a trouxe a Jerusalém; porém pôs as armas dele na sua tenda.

55 And when Saul saw David going out against the Philistine, he said to Abner, the captain of the army, Abner, whose son is this young man? And Abner said, On your life, O king, I have no idea.
55 Vendo, porém, Saul sair Davi a encontrar-se com o filisteu, disse a Abner, o chefe do exército: De quem é filho este jovem, Abner? E disse Abner: Vive a tua alma, ó rei, que o não sei.

56 And the king said, Make search and see whose son this young man is.
56 Disse, então, o rei: Pergunta, pois, de quem é filho este jovem.

57 And when David was coming back after the destruction of the Philistine, Abner took him to Saul, with the head of the Philistine in his hand.
57 Voltando, pois, Davi de ferir o filisteu, Abner o tomou consigo e o trouxe à presença de Saul, trazendo ele na mão a cabeça do filisteu.

58 And Saul said to him, Young man, whose son are you? And David in answer said, I am the son of your servant Jesse of Beth-lehem.
58 E disse-lhe Saul: De quem és filho, jovem? E disse Davi: Filho de teu servo Jessé, belemita.

1 Samuel 18

1 Now after David’s talk with Saul was ended, the soul of Jonathan was joined with the soul of David, and David became as dear to him as his very life.
1 E Sucedeu que, acabando ele de falar com Saul, a alma de Jônatas se ligou com a alma de Davi; e Jônatas o amou como à sua própria alma.

2 And that day Saul took David and would not let him go back to his father’s house.
2 E Saul, naquele dia, o tomou e não lhe permitiu que tornasse para casa de seu pai.

3 Then Jonathan and David made an agreement together, because of Jonathan’s love for David.
3 E Jônatas e Davi fizeram aliança; porque Jônatas o amava como à sua própria alma.

4 And Jonathan took off the robe he had on and gave it to David, with all his military dress, even to his sword and his bow and the band round his body.
4 E Jônatas se despojou da capa que trazia sobre si e a deu a Davi, como também as suas vestes, até a sua espada, e o seu arco, e o seu cinto.

5 And David went wherever Saul sent him, and did wisely: and Saul put him at the head of his men of war, and this was pleasing to all the people as well as to Saul’s servants.
5 E saía Davi aonde quer que Saul o enviava e conduzia-se com prudência; e Saul o pôs sobre a gente de guerra, e era aceito aos olhos de todo o povo e até aos olhos dos servos de Saul.

6 Now on their way, when David came back after the destruction of the Philistine, the women came out of all the towns of Israel, with songs and dances, meeting David with melody and joy and instruments of music.
6 Sucedeu, porém, que, vindo eles, quando Davi voltava de ferir os filisteus, as mulheres de todas as cidades de Israel saíram ao encontro do rei Saul, cantando e em danças, com adufes, com alegria e com instrumentos de música.

7 And the women, answering one another in their song, said, Saul has put to death his thousands and David his tens of thousands.
7 E as mulheres, tangendo, respondiam umas às outras e diziam: Saul feriu os seus milhares, porém Davi, os seus dez milhares.

8 And Saul was very angry and this saying was unpleasing to him; and he said, They have given David credit for tens of thousands, and to me for only thousands: what more is there for him but the kingdom?
8 Então, Saul se indignou muito, e aquela palavra pareceu mal aos seus olhos; e disse: Dez milhares deram a Davi, e a mim somente milhares; na verdade, que lhe falta, senão só o reino?

9 And from that day Saul was looking with envy on David.
9 E, desde aquele dia em diante, Saul tinha Davi em suspeita.

10 Now on the day after, an evil spirit from God came on Saul with great force and he was acting like a prophet among the men of his house, while David was making music for him, as he did day by day: and Saul had his spear in his hand.
10 E aconteceu, ao outro dia, que o mau espírito, da parte de Deus, se apoderou de Saul, e profetizava no meio da casa; e Davi tangia a harpa com a sua mão, como de dia em dia; Saul, porém, tinha na mão uma lança.

11 And Saul, balancing the spear in his hand, said, I will give David a blow, pinning him to the wall. And David got away from him twice.
11 E Saul atirou com a lança, dizendo: Encravarei a Davi na parede. Porém Davi se desviou dele por duas vezes.

12 And Saul went in fear of David, because the Lord was with David and had gone away from Saul.
12 E temia Saul a Davi, porque o SENHOR era com ele e se tinha retirado de Saul.

13 So Saul sent him away, and made him a captain over a thousand; and he went about his business before the people.
13 Pelo que Saul o desviou de si e o pôs por chefe de mil; e saía e entrava diante do povo.

14 And in all his undertakings David did wisely; and the Lord was with him.
14 E Davi se conduzia com prudência em todos os seus caminhos, e o SENHOR era com ele.

15 And when Saul saw how wisely he did, he was in fear of him.
15 Vendo, então, Saul que tão prudentemente se conduzia, tinha receio dele.

16 But David was loved by all Israel and Judah, for he went out and came in before them.
16 Porém todo o Israel e Judá amavam Davi, porquanto saía e entrava diante deles.

17 And Saul said to David, Here is my oldest daughter Merab, whom I will give you for your wife: only be strong for me, fighting in the Lord’s wars. For Saul said, Let it not be through me that his fate comes to him, but through the Philistines.
17 Pelo que Saul disse a Davi: Eis que Merabe, minha filha mais velha, te darei por mulher; sê-me somente filho valoroso e guerreia as guerras do SENHOR (Porque Saul dizia consigo: Não seja contra ele a minha mão, mas, sim, a dos filisteus.).

18 And David said to Saul, Who am I, and what is my father’s family in Israel, that I am to be son-in-law to the king?
18 Mas Davi disse a Saul: Quem sou eu, e qual é a minha vida e a família de meu pai em Israel, para vir a ser genro do rei?

19 But when the time came to give Merab, Saul’s daughter, to David, she was given to Adriel of Meholath.
19 Sucedeu, porém, que ao tempo que Merabe, filha de Saul, devia ser dada a Davi, ela foi dada por mulher a Adriel, meolatita.

20 And Saul’s daughter Michal was in love with David: and Saul had word of it and was pleased.
20 Mas Mical, a outra filha de Saul, amava a Davi; o que, sendo anunciado a Saul, pareceu isso bom aos seus olhos.

21 And Saul said, I will give her to him, so that she may be a cause of danger to him, and so that the hands of the Philistines may be against him. So Saul said to David, Today you are to become my son-in-law for the second time.
21 E Saul disse: Eu lha darei, para que lhe sirva de laço e para que a mão dos filisteus venha a ser contra ele. Pelo que Saul disse a Davi: Com a outra serás hoje meu genro.

22 And Saul gave his servants orders saying, Have talk with David secretly and say to him, See how the king has delight in you, and how you are loved by all his servants: then be the king’s son-in-law.
22 E Saul deu ordem aos seus servos: Falai em segredo a Davi, dizendo: Eis que o rei te está mui afeiçoado, e todos os seus servos te amam; agora, pois, consente em ser genro do rei.

23 And Saul’s servants said these things to David. And David said, Does it seem to you a small thing to be the king’s son-in-law, seeing that I am a poor man, of no great name?
23 E os servos de Saul falaram todas essas palavras aos ouvidos de Davi. Então, disse Davi: Parece-vos pouco aos vossos olhos ser genro do rei, sendo eu homem pobre e desprezível?

24 And the servants of Saul gave him an account of what David had said.
24 E os servos de Saul lhe anunciaram isso, dizendo: Foram tais as palavras que falou Davi.

25 And Saul said, Then say to David, The king has no desire for any bride-price, but only for the private parts of a hundred Philistines so that the king may get the better of his haters. But it was in Saul’s mind that David might come to his end by the hands of the Philistines.
25 Então, disse Saul: Assim direis a Davi: O rei não tem necessidade de dote, senão de cem prepúcios de filisteus, para se tomar vingança dos inimigos do rei. Porquanto Saul tentava fazer cair a Davi pela mão dos filisteus.

26 And when his servants said these words to David, he was well pleased to be the son-in-law of the king. And the days were still not past.
26 E anunciaram os seus servos essas palavras a Davi, e esse negócio pareceu bem aos olhos de Davi, de que fosse genro do rei; porém ainda os dias se não haviam cumprido.

27 So David and his men got up and went, and put to death two hundred of the Philistines; and David took their private parts and gave the full number of them to the king, so that he might be the king’s son-in-law. And Saul gave him his daughter Michal for his wife.
27 Então, Davi se levantou e partiu ele com os seus homens, e feriram dentre os filisteus duzentos homens; e Davi trouxe os seus prepúcios, e os entregaram todos ao rei, para que fosse genro do rei; então, Saul lhe deu por mulher a sua filha.

28 And it was clear to Saul that the Lord was with David; and he was loved by all Israel.
28 E viu Saul e notou que o SENHOR era com Davi; e Mical, filha de Saul, o amava.

29 And Saul’s fear of David became all the greater, and he went on hating him, day by day.
29 Então, Saul temeu muito mais a Davi e Saul foi todos os seus dias inimigo de Davi.

30 Then the rulers of the Philistines went out to war: and whenever they went out, David did more wisely than all the other servants of Saul, so that his name became greatly honoured.
30 E, saindo os príncipes dos filisteus para a batalha, sucedeu que Davi se conduziu mais prudentemente do que todos os servos de Saul; portanto, o seu nome era mui estimado.

1 Samuel 19

1 And Saul gave orders to his son Jonathan and to all his servants to put David to death. But Saul’s son Jonathan had great delight in David.
1 E falou Saul a Jônatas, seu filho, e a todos os seus servos para que matassem Davi. Porém Jônatas, filho de Saul, estava mui afeiçoado a Davi.

2 And Jonathan said to David, Saul, my father, is purposing your death: so now, take care in the morning, and keep yourself safe in a secret place:
2 E Jônatas o anunciou a Davi, dizendo: Meu pai, Saul, procura matar-te; pelo que, agora, guarda-te, pela manhã, e fica-te num lugar oculto, e esconde-te.

3 And I will go out and take my place by my father’s side in the field near where you are; and I will get into talk with my father about you, and when I see how things are, I will give you word.
3 E sairei eu e estarei à mão de meu pai no campo em que estiveres; e eu falarei de ti a meu pai, e verei o que houver, e to anunciarei.

4 And Jonathan gave his father Saul a good account of David, and said to him, Let not the king do wrong against his servant, against David; because he has done you no wrong, and all his acts have had a good outcome for you:
4 Então, Jônatas falou bem de Davi a Saul, seu pai, e disse-lhe: Não peque o rei contra seu servo Davi, porque ele não pecou contra ti, e porque os seus feitos te são mui bons.

5 For he put his life in danger and overcame the Philistine, and the Lord gave all Israel salvation: you saw it and were glad: why then are you sinning against him who has done no wrong, desiring the death of David without cause?
5 Porque pôs a sua alma na mão e feriu aos filisteus, e fez o SENHOR um grande livramento a todo o Israel; tu mesmo o viste e te alegraste; por que, pois, pecarias contra sangue inocente, matando Davi sem causa?

6 And Saul gave ear to the voice of Jonathan, and said with an oath, By the living Lord, he is not to be put to death.
6 E Saul deu ouvidos à voz de Jônatas e jurou Saul: Vive o SENHOR, que não morrerá.

7 Then Jonathan sent for David and gave him word of all these things. And Jonathan took David to Saul, who kept him by his side as in the past.
7 E Jônatas chamou a Davi, e contou-lhe todas estas palavras, e Jônatas levou Davi a Saul; e esteve perante ele como dantes.

8 And there was war again: and David went out fighting the Philistines, causing great destruction among them; and they went in flight before him.
8 E tornou a haver guerra; e saiu Davi, e pelejou contra os filisteus, e feriu-os de grande ferida; e fugiram diante dele.

9 And an evil spirit from the Lord came on Saul, when he was seated in his house with his spear in his hand; and David made music for him.
9 Porém o espírito mau, da parte do SENHOR, se tornou sobre Saul, estando ele assentado em sua casa e tendo na mão a sua lança, e tangendo Davi com a mão o instrumento de música.

10 And Saul would have sent his spear through him, pinning him to the wall, but he got away and the spear went into the wall: and that night David went in flight and got away.
10 E procurava Saul encravar a Davi na parede, porém ele se desviou de diante de Saul, o qual feriu com a lança a parede; então, fugiu Davi e escapou naquela mesma noite.

11 Then in that night Saul sent men to David’s house to keep watch on him so as to put him to death in the morning: and David’s wife Michal said to him, If you do not go away to a safe place tonight you will be put to death in the morning.
11 Porém Saul mandou mensageiros à casa de Davi, que o guardassem e o matassem pela manhã; do que Mical, sua mulher, avisou a Davi, dizendo: Se não salvares a tua vida esta noite, amanhã te matarão.

12 So Michal let David down through the window, and he went in flight and got away.
12 Então, Mical desceu a Davi por uma janela; e ele se foi, e fugiu, e escapou.

13 Then Michal took the image and put it in the bed, with a cushion of goat’s hair at its head, and she put clothing over it.
13 E Mical tomou uma estátua, e a deitou na cama, e pôs-lhe à cabeceira uma pele de cabra, e a cobriu com uma coberta.

14 And when Saul sent men to take David, she said, He is ill.
14 E, mandando Saul mensageiros que trouxessem a Davi, ela disse: Está doente.

15 And Saul sent his men to see David, saying, Do not come back without him, take him in his bed, so that I may put him to death.
15 Então, Saul mandou mensageiros que vissem Davi, dizendo: Trazei-mo mesmo na cama, para que o mate.

16 And when the men came in, there was the image in the bed, with the cushion of goat’s hair at its head
16 Vindo, pois, os mensageiros, eis que estava a estátua na cama, e a pele de cabra, à sua cabeceira.

17 And Saul said to Michal, why have you been false to me, letting my hater go and get safely away? And in answer Michal said to Saul, He said to me, Let me go, or I will put you to death.
17 Então, disse Saul a Mical: Por que assim me enganaste e deixaste ir e escapar o meu inimigo? E disse Mical a Saul: Porque ele me disse: Deixa-me ir, por que hei de eu matar-te?

18 So David went in flight and got away and came to Ramah, to Samuel, and gave him an account of all Saul had done to him. And he and Samuel went and were living in Naioth.
18 Assim, Davi fugiu, e escapou, e veio a Samuel, a Ramá, e lhe participou tudo quanto Saul lhe fizera; e foram, ele e Samuel, e ficaram em Naiote.

19 And word was given to Saul that David was at Naioth in Ramah.
19 E o anunciaram a Saul, dizendo: Eis que Davi está em Naiote, em Ramá.

20 And Saul sent men to take David; and when they saw the band of prophets at work, with Samuel in his place at their head, the spirit of God came on Saul’s men, and they became like prophets.
20 Então, enviou Saul mensageiros para trazerem a Davi, os quais viram uma congregação de profetas profetizando, onde estava Samuel, que presidia sobre eles; e o Espírito de Deus veio sobre os mensageiros de Saul, e também eles profetizaram.

21 And Saul, having news of this, sent other men, who in the same way became like prophets. And a third time Saul sent men, and they like the others became like prophets.
21 E, avisado disso Saul, enviou outros mensageiros, e também estes profetizaram; então, enviou Saul ainda uns terceiros mensageiros, os quais também profetizaram.

22 Then he himself went to Ramah, and came to the great water-spring in Secu; and questioning the people he said, Where are Samuel and David? And one said, They are at Naioth in Ramah.
22 Então, foi também ele mesmo a Ramá e chegou ao poço grande que estava em Seco; e, perguntando, disse: Onde estão Samuel e Davi? E disseram-lhe: Eis que estão em Naiote, em Ramá.

23 And he went on from there to Naioth in Ramah: and the spirit of God came on him, and he went on, acting like a prophet, till he came to Naioth in Ramah.
23 Então, foi para Naiote, em Ramá; e o mesmo Espírito de Deus veio sobre ele, e ia profetizando, até chegar a Naiote, em Ramá.

24 And he took off his clothing, acting like a prophet before Samuel, and falling down he was stretched out, without his clothing, all that day and all that night. This is the reason for the saying, Is even Saul among the prophets?
24 E ele também despiu as suas vestes, e ele também profetizou diante de Samuel, e esteve nu por terra todo aquele dia e toda aquela noite; pelo que se diz: Está também Saul entre os profetas?

1 Samuel 20

1 And David went in flight from Naioth in Ramah and came to Jonathan and said, What have I done? What is my crime and my sin against your father that he is attempting to take my life?
1 Então, fugiu Davi de Naiote, em Ramá, e veio, e disse perante Jônatas: Que fiz eu? Qual é o meu crime? E qual é o meu pecado diante de teu pai, que procura tirar-me a vida?

2 And he said to him, Far be the thought: you will not be put to death: see, my father does nothing, great or small, without giving me word of it: would he keep this secret from me? It is not so.
2 E ele lhe disse: Tal não seja; não morrerás. Eis que meu pai não faz coisa nenhuma grande, nem pequena, sem primeiro me dar parte; por que, pois, meu pai me encobriria este negócio? Não é assim.

3 But David took his oath again and said, Your father sees that I am dear to you; so he says to himself, Let Jonathan have no idea of this, for it will be a grief to him; but as the Lord is living, and as your soul is living, there is only a step between me and death.
3 Então, Davi tornou a jurar e disse: Mui bem sabe teu pai que achei graça a teus olhos; pelo que disse: Não saiba isso Jônatas, para que se não magoe; e, na verdade, vive o SENHOR, e vive a tua alma, que apenas há um passo entre mim e a morte.

4 Then Jonathan said to David, Whatever your desire is, I will do it for you.
4 E disse Jônatas a Davi: O que disser a tua alma eu te farei.

5 And David said to Jonathan, Tomorrow is the new moon, and I will not be seated with the king at his table: but let me go to a safe place in the country till the evening.
5 Disse Davi a Jônatas: Eis que amanhã é a lua nova, em que costumo assentar-me com o rei para comer; deixa-me tu ir, porém, e esconder-me-ei no campo, até à terceira tarde.

6 And if your father takes note of the fact that I am away, say, David made a request to me for himself that he might go to Beth-lehem, to his town: for it is the time when his family make their offering year by year.
6 Se teu pai notar a minha ausência, dirás: Davi me pediu muito que o deixasse ir correndo a Belém, sua cidade; porquanto se faz lá o sacrifício anual para toda a linhagem.

7 If he says, It is well, your servant will be at peace: but if he is angry, then it will be clear to you that he has an evil purpose in mind against me.
7 Se disser assim: Está bem! Então, teu servo tem paz. Porém, se muito se indignar, sabe que já está inteiramente determinado no mal.

8 So, then, be kind to your servant; for you have been united with your servant in an agreement made before the Lord: but if there is any wrongdoing in me, put me to death yourself; why take me to your father?
8 Usa, pois, de misericórdia com o teu servo, porque fizeste a teu servo entrar contigo em aliança do SENHOR; se, porém, há em mim crime, mata-me tu mesmo; por que me levarias a teu pai?

9 And Jonathan said, Do not have such a thought: for if I saw that my father was designing evil against you, would I not give you word of it?
9 Então, disse Jônatas: Longe de ti tal coisa; porém, se dalguma maneira soubesse que já este mal está inteiramente determinado por meu pai, para que viesse sobre ti, não to descobriria eu?

10 Then David said to Jonathan, Who will give me word if your father gives you a rough answer?
10 E disse Davi a Jônatas: Quem tal me fará saber, se, por acaso, teu pai te responder asperamente?

11 And Jonathan said to David, Come, let us go out into the country. And the two of them went out together into the open country.
11 Então, disse Jônatas a Davi: Vem, e saiamos ao campo. E saíram ambos ao campo.

12 And Jonathan said to David, May the Lord, the God of Israel, be witness; when I have had a chance of talking to my father, about this time tomorrow, if his feelings to David are good, will I not send and give you the news?
12 E disse Jônatas a Davi: O SENHOR, Deus de Israel, seja testemunha. Sondando eu a meu pai amanhã a estas horas ou depois de amanhã, e eis que houver coisa favorável para Davi, e eu, então, não enviar a ti e não to fizer saber,

13 May the Lord’s punishment be on Jonathan, if it is my father’s pleasure to do you evil and I do not give you word of it and send you away so that you may go in peace: and may the Lord be with you, as he has been with my father.
13 o SENHOR faça assim com Jônatas outro tanto; mas, se aprouver a meu pai fazer-te mal, também to farei saber e te deixarei partir, e irás em paz; e o SENHOR seja contigo, assim como foi com meu pai.

14 And may you, while I am still living, O may you be kind to me, as the Lord is kind, and keep me from death!
14 E, se eu, então, ainda viver, porventura, não usarás comigo da beneficência do SENHOR, para que não morra?

15 And let not your mercy ever be cut off from my family, even when the Lord has sent destruction on all David’s haters, cutting them off from the face of the earth.
15 Nem tampouco cortarás da minha casa a tua beneficência eternamente; nem ainda quando o SENHOR desarraigar da terra a cada um dos inimigos de Davi.

16 And if it comes about that the name of Jonathan is cut off from the family of David, the Lord will make David responsible.
16 Assim, fez Jônatas aliança com a casa de Davi, dizendo: O SENHOR o requeira da mão dos inimigos de Davi.

17 And Jonathan again took an oath to David, because of his love for him: for David was as dear to him as his very soul.
17 E Jônatas fez jurar a Davi de novo, porquanto o amava; porque o amava com todo o amor da sua alma.

18 Then Jonathan said to him, Tomorrow is the new moon: and it will be seen that you are not present, for there will be no one in your seat.
18 E disse-lhe Jônatas: Amanhã é a lua nova, e não te acharão no teu lugar, pois o teu assento se achará vazio.

19 And on the third day it will be specially noted, and you will go to the place where you took cover when the other business was in hand, waiting by the hill over there.
19 E, ausentando-te tu três dias, desce apressadamente e vai àquele lugar onde te escondeste no dia do negócio; e fica-te junto à pedra de Ezel.

20 And on the third day I will send arrows from my bow against its side as if at a mark.
20 E eu atirarei três flechas para aquela banda, como se atirara ao alvo.

21 And I will send my boy to have a look for the arrow. And if I say to him, See, the arrow is on this side of you; take it up! then you may come; for there is peace for you and no evil, by the living Lord.
21 E eis que mandarei o moço, dizendo: Anda, busca as flechas; se eu expressamente disser ao moço: Olha que as flechas estão para cá de ti, toma-o contigo; vem, porque há paz para ti, e não há nada, vive o SENHOR.

22 But if I say to the boy, See, the arrow has gone past you: then go on your way, for the Lord has sent you away.
22 Porém, se disser ao moço assim: Olha que as flechas estão para lá de ti. Vai-te embora, porque o SENHOR te deixa ir.

23 As for what you and I were talking of, the Lord is between you and me for ever.
23 E, quanto ao negócio de que eu e tu falamos, eis que o SENHOR está entre mim e ti, eternamente.

24 So David went to a secret place in the country: and when the new moon came, the king took his place at the feast.
24 Escondeu-se, pois, Davi no campo; e, sendo a lua nova, assentou-se o rei para comer pão.

25 And the king took his seat, as at other times, by the wall: and Jonathan was in front, and Abner was seated by Saul’s side, but there was no one in David’s seat.
25 E, assentando-se o rei no seu assento, como as outras vezes, no lugar junto à parede, Jônatas se levantou, e assentou-se Abner ao lado de Saul; e o lugar de Davi apareceu vazio.

26 But Saul said nothing that day, for his thought was, Something has taken place making him unclean; it is clear that he is not clean.
26 Porém, naquele dia, não disse Saul nada, porque dizia: Aconteceu-lhe alguma coisa, pela qual não está limpo; certamente, não está limpo.

27 And on the day after the new moon, that is, the second day, there was still no one in David’s seat: and Saul said to his son Jonathan, Why has the son of Jesse not come to the feast yesterday or today?
27 Sucedeu também ao outro dia, o segundo da lua nova, que o lugar de Davi apareceu vazio; disse, pois, Saul a Jônatas, seu filho: Por que não veio o filho de Jessé, nem ontem nem hoje, a comer pão?

28 And answering Saul, Jonathan said, He made a request to me that he might go to Beth-lehem,
28 E respondeu Jônatas a Saul: Davi me pediu encarecidamente que o deixasse ir a Belém,

29 Saying, Our family is making an offering in the town, and my brothers have given me orders to be there: so now, if I have grace in your eyes, let me go away and see my brothers. This is why he has not come to the king’s table.
29 dizendo: Peço-te que me deixes ir, porquanto a nossa linhagem tem um sacrifício na cidade, e meu irmão mesmo me mandou ir. Se, pois, agora tenho achado graça a teus olhos, peço-te que me deixes partir, para que veja meus irmãos. Por isso, não veio à mesa do rei.

30 Then Saul was moved to wrath against Jonathan, and he said to him, You son of an evil and uncontrolled woman, have I not seen how you have given your love to the son of Jesse, to your shame and the shame of your mother?
30 Então, se acendeu a ira de Saul contra Jônatas, e disse-lhe: Filho da perversa em rebeldia; não sei eu que tens elegido o filho de Jessé, para vergonha tua e para vergonha da nudez de tua mãe?

31 For while the son of Jesse is living on the earth, your position is unsafe and your kingdom is in danger. So make him come here to me, for it is certainly right for him to be put to death.
31 Porque todos os dias que o filho de Jessé viver sobre a terra nem tu serás firme, nem o teu reino; pelo que envia e traze-mo nesta hora, porque é digno de morte.

32 And Jonathan, answering his father Saul, said to him, Why is he to be put to death? What has he done?
32 Então, respondeu Jônatas a Saul, seu pai, e lhe disse: Por que há de ele morrer? Que tem feito?

33 And Saul, pointing his spear at him, made an attempt to give him a wound: from which it was clear to Jonathan that his father’s purpose was to put David to death.
33 Então, Saul atirou-lhe com a lança, para o ferir; assim, entendeu Jônatas que já seu pai tinha determinado matar a Davi.

34 So Jonathan got up from the table, burning with wrath, and took no part in the feast the second day of the month, being full of grief for David because his father had put shame on him.
34 Pelo que Jônatas, todo encolerizado, se levantou da mesa e, no segundo dia da lua nova, não comeu pão; porque se magoava por causa de Davi, pois seu pai o tinha maltratado.

35 Now in the morning, Jonathan went out into the fields at the time he had said to David, and he had a little boy with him.
35 E aconteceu, pela manhã, que Jônatas saiu ao campo, ao tempo que tinha ajustado com Davi, e um moço pequeno com ele.

36 And he said to the boy, Go and get the arrow I let loose from my bow. And while the boy was running, he sent an arrow past him.
36 Então, disse ao seu moço: Corre a buscar as flechas que eu atirar. Correu, pois, o moço, e ele atirou uma flecha, que fez passar além dele.

37 And when the boy came to the place where the arrow was, Jonathan, crying out after the boy, said, Has it not gone past you?
37 E, chegando o moço ao lugar da flecha que Jônatas tinha atirado, gritou Jônatas atrás do moço e disse: Não está, porventura, a flecha mais para lá de ti?

38 And Jonathan went on crying out after the boy, Be quick, do not keep waiting about, go quickly. And Jonathan’s boy got the arrow and came back to his master.
38 E tornou Jônatas a gritar atrás do moço: Apressa-te, avia-te, não te demores. E o moço de Jônatas apanhou as flechas e veio a seu senhor.

39 But the boy had no idea what was going on; only Jonathan and David had knowledge of it.
39 E o moço não entendeu coisa alguma; só Jônatas e Davi sabiam deste negócio.

40 And Jonathan gave his bow and arrows to the boy, and said to him, Take these and go back to the town.
40 Então, Jônatas deu as suas armas ao moço que trazia e disse-lhe: Anda e leva-as à cidade.

41 And when the boy had gone, David came from his secret place by the hill, and falling to the earth went down on his face three times: and they gave one another a kiss, weeping together, till David’s grief was the greater.
41 E, indo-se o moço, levantou-se Davi da banda do sul, e lançou-se sobre o seu rosto em terra, e inclinou-se três vezes; e beijaram-se um ao outro e choraram juntos, até que Davi chorou muito mais.

42 And Jonathan said to David, Go in peace, for we two have taken an oath, in the name of the Lord, saying, The Lord will be between me and you, and between my seed and your seed for ever. Then David went away, and Jonathan went into the town.
42 E disse Jônatas a Davi: Vai-te em paz, porque nós temos jurado ambos em nome do SENHOR, dizendo: O SENHOR seja perpetuamente entre mim e ti e entre minha semente e a tua semente. (43) Então, se levantou Davi e se foi; e Jônatas entrou na cidade.

1 Samuel 21

1 Then David came to Nob, to Ahimelech the priest: and Ahimelech was full of fear at meeting David, and said to him, Why are you by yourself, having no man with you?
1 Então, veio Davi a Nobe, ao sacerdote Aimeleque; e Aimeleque, tremendo, saiu ao encontro de Davi e disse-lhe: Por que vens só, e ninguém, contigo?

2 And David said to Ahimelech the priest, The king has given me orders and has said to me, Say nothing to anyone about the business on which I am sending you and the orders I have given you: and a certain place has been fixed to which the young men are to go.
2 E disse Davi ao sacerdote Aimeleque: O rei me encomendou um negócio e me disse: Ninguém saiba deste negócio pelo qual eu te enviei e o qual te ordenei; quanto aos jovens, apontei-lhes tal e tal lugar.

3 So now, if you have here five cakes of bread, give them into my hand, or whatever you have.
3 Agora, pois, que tens à mão? Dá-me cinco pães na minha mão ou o que se achar.

4 And the priest, answering David, said, I have no common bread here but there is holy bread; if only the young men have kept themselves from women.
4 E, respondendo o sacerdote a Davi, disse: Não tenho pão comum à mão; há, porém, pão sagrado, se ao menos os jovens se abstiveram das mulheres.

5 And David in answer said to the priest, Certainly women have been kept from us; and as has been done before when I have gone out the arms of the young men were made holy, even though it was a common journey; how much more today will their arms be made holy.
5 E respondeu Davi ao sacerdote e lhe disse: Sim, em boa fé, as mulheres se nos vedaram desde ontem; e, anteontem, quando eu saí, o corpo dos jovens também era santo; e em alguma maneira é pão comum, quanto mais que hoje se santificará outro no corpo!

6 So the priest gave him the holy bread: there was no other, only the holy bread which had been taken from before the Lord, so that new bread might be put in its place on the day when it was taken away.
6 Então, o sacerdote lhe deu o pão sagrado, porquanto não havia ali outro pão, senão os pães da proposição, que se tiraram de diante do SENHOR, para se pôr ali pão quente, no dia em que aquele se tirasse.

7 Now a certain man of the servants of Saul was there that day, kept back before the Lord; his name was Doeg, an Edomite, the strongest of Saul’s runners.
7 Estava, porém, ali, naquele dia, um dos criados de Saul, detido perante o SENHOR; e era seu nome Doegue, edomita, o mais poderoso dos pastores de Saul.

8 And David said to Ahimelech, Have you no sword or spear with you here? for I have come without my sword and other arms, because the king’s business had to be done quickly.
8 E disse Davi a Aimeleque: Não tens aqui à mão lança ou espada alguma? Porque não trouxe à mão nem a minha espada nem as minhas armas, porque o negócio do rei era apressado.

9 And the priest said, The sword of Goliath the Philistine, whom you put to death in the valley of Elah, is here folded in a cloth at the back of the ephod: take that, if you will, for there is no other sword here. And David said, there is no other sword like that; give it to me.
9 E disse o sacerdote: A espada de Golias, o filisteu, a quem tu feriste no vale do Carvalho, eis que ela aqui está, envolta num pano detrás do éfode; se tu a queres tomar, toma-a, porque nenhuma outra há aqui, senão aquela. E disse Davi: Não há outra semelhante; dá-ma.

10 Then David got up and went in flight that day for fear of Saul, and went to Achish, the king of Gath.
10 E Davi levantou-se, e fugiu, aquele dia, de diante de Saul, e veio a Aquis, rei de Gate.

11 And the servants of Achish said to him, Is not this David, the king of the land? did they not make songs about him in their dances, saying, Saul has put to death thousands, and David tens of thousands?
11 Porém os criados de Aquis lhe disseram: Não é este Davi, o rei da terra? Não se cantava deste nas danças, dizendo: Saul feriu os seus milhares, porém Davi, os seus dez milhares?

12 And David took these words to heart, fearing Achish, the king of Gath.
12 E Davi considerou essas palavras no seu ânimo e temeu muito diante de Aquis, rei de Gate.

13 So changing his behaviour before them, he made it seem as if he was off his head, hammering on the doors of the town, and letting the water from his mouth go down his chin.
13 Pelo que se contrafez diante dos olhos deles, e fez-se como doido entre as suas mãos, e esgravatava nas portas do portal, e deixava correr saliva pela barba.

14 Then Achish said to his servants, Look! the man is clearly off his head; why have you let him come before me?
14 Então, disse Aquis aos seus criados: Eis que bem vedes que este homem está louco; por que mo trouxestes a mim?

15 Are there not enough unbalanced men about me, that you have let this person come and do such tricks before me? is such a man to come into my house?
15 Faltam-me a mim doidos, para que trouxésseis este que fizesse doidices diante de mim? Há de este entrar na minha casa?

1 Samuel 22

1 So David went away from there and took cover in a strong place at Adullam; and his brothers and all his father’s people, hearing of it, went down to him there.
1 Então, Davi se retirou dali e se escapou para a caverna de Adulão; e ouviram-no seus irmãos e toda a casa de seu pai e desceram ali para ele.

2 And everyone who was in trouble, and everyone who was in debt, and everyone who was bitter in soul, came together to him, and he became captain over them: about four hundred men were joined to him.
2 E ajuntou-se a ele todo homem que se achava em aperto, e todo homem endividado, e todo homem de espírito desgostoso, e ele se fez chefe deles; e eram com ele uns quatrocentos homens.

3 And from there David went to Mizpeh in the land of Moab: and he said to the king of Moab, Let my father and mother come and make their living-place with you till it is clear to me what God will do for me.
3 E foi-se Davi dali a Mispa dos moabitas e disse ao rei dos moabitas: Deixa estar meu pai e minha mãe convosco, até que saiba o que Deus há de fazer de mim.

4 And he took them to the king of Moab and they went on living with him while David was in his safe place.
4 E trouxe-os perante o rei dos moabitas, e ficaram com ele todos os dias que Davi esteve no lugar forte.

5 And the prophet Gad said to David, Do not go on living in this place but go into the land of Judah. Then David went away and came to the woodland of Hereth.
5 Porém o profeta Gade disse a Davi: Não fiques naquele lugar forte; vai e entra na terra de Judá. Então, Davi foi e veio para o bosque de Herete.

6 And news was given to Saul that David had been seen, and the men who were with him: now Saul was in Gibeah, seated under the tree in the high place, with his spear in his hand, and all his servants were in their places before him.
6 E ouviu Saul que já se sabia de Davi e dos homens que estavam com ele: e estava Saul em Gibeá, debaixo de um arvoredo, em Ramá, e tinha na mão a sua lança, e todos os seus criados estavam com ele.

7 Then Saul said to his servants who were there about him, Give ear now, you Benjamites; will the son of Jesse give to every one of you fields and vine-gardens, will he make you all captains of hundreds and captains of thousands;
7 Então, disse Saul a todos os seus criados que estavam com ele: Ouvi, peço-vos, filhos de Benjamim, dar-vos-á também o filho de Jessé, a todos vós, terras e vinhas, e far-vos-á a todos chefes de milhares e chefes de centenas,

8 That all of you have made designs against me, and not one of you gave me word when my son made an agreement with the son of Jesse, and not one of you has pity for me or has made my eyes open to the fact that my servant has been moved by my son against me, as at this day?
8 para que todos vós tenhais conspirado contra mim? E ninguém há que me dê aviso de que meu filho tem feito aliança com o filho de Jessé; e nenhum dentre vós há que se doa de mim e mo participe, pois meu filho tem contra mim sublevado a meu servo, para me armar ciladas, como se vê neste dia.

9 Then Doeg, the Edomite, who was by the side of the servants of Saul, in answer said, I saw the son of Jesse coming to Nob, to Ahimelech, the son of Ahitub.
9 Então, respondeu Doegue, o edomita, que também estava com os criados de Saul, e disse: Ao filho de Jessé vi vir a Nobe, a Aimeleque, filho de Aitube,

10 And he got directions from the Lord for him, and gave him food, and put in his hand the sword of Goliath the Philistine.
10 o qual consultou por ele o SENHOR, e lhe deu mantimento, e lhe deu também a espada de Golias, o filisteu.

11 Then the king sent for Ahimelech the priest, the son of Ahitub, and for all the men of his father’s family who were priests in Nob: and they all came to the king.
11 Então, o rei mandou chamar a Aimeleque, sacerdote, filho de Aitube, e a toda a casa de seu pai, e aos sacerdotes que estavam em Nobe; e todos eles vieram ao rei.

12 And Saul said, Give ear now, O son of Ahitub. And answering he said, Here I am, my lord.
12 E disse Saul: Ouve, peço-te, filho de Aitube. E ele disse: Eis-me aqui, senhor meu.

13 And Saul said to him, Why have you made designs against me with the son of Jesse, giving him food and a sword and getting directions from the Lord for him, and helping him to take up arms against me, and to be on the watch to make a secret attack on me as he is doing now?
13 Então, lhe disse Saul: Por que conspirastes contra mim, tu e o filho de Jessé? Pois deste-lhe pão e espada e consultaste por ele a Deus, para que se levantasse contra mim a armar-me ciladas, como se vê neste dia?

14 Then Ahimelech answering said to the king, Who among all your servants is so true to you as David, who is the king’s son-in-law, and is a captain of your armed men, and has a place of honour in your house?
14 E respondeu Aimeleque ao rei e disse: E quem, entre todos os teus criados, há tão fiel como Davi, o genro do rei, pronto na sua obediência e honrado na tua casa?

15 Is this the first time I have got directions from God for him? Far be the thought! let the king make no such statement against his servant or my father’s family, for your servant has no knowledge, great or small, of this thing.
15 Comecei, porventura, hoje a consultar por ele a Deus? Longe de mim tal! Não impute o rei coisa nenhuma a seu servo, nem a toda a casa de meu pai, pois o teu servo não soube nada de tudo isso, nem muito nem pouco.

16 And the king said, You will certainly be put to death, Ahimelech, you and all your father’s family.
16 Porém o rei disse: Aimeleque, morrerás certamente, tu e toda a casa de teu pai.

17 Then the king said to the runners who were waiting near him, Put the priests of the Lord to death; because they are on David’s side, and having knowledge of his flight, did not give me word of it. But the king’s servants would not put out their hands to make an attack on the Lord’s priests.
17 E disse o rei aos da sua guarda, que estavam com ele: Virai-vos e matai os sacerdotes do SENHOR, porque também a sua mão é com Davi e porque souberam que fugiu e não mo fizeram saber. Porém os criados do rei não quiseram estender as suas mãos para arremeter contra os sacerdotes do SENHOR.

18 Then the king said to Doeg, You are to put the priests to death. And Doeg the Edomite, turning on the priests and attacking them, put to death that day eighty-five men who took up the ephod.
18 Então, disse o rei a Doegue: Vira-te tu e arremete contra os sacerdotes. Então, se virou Doegue, o edomita, e arremeteu contra os sacerdotes, e matou, naquele dia, oitenta e cinco homens que vestiam éfode de linho.

19 And Nob, the town of the priests, he put to the sword, all the men and women, children and babies at the breast, and oxen and asses and sheep.
19 Também a Nobe, cidade desses sacerdotes, passou a fio de espada; desde o homem até à mulher, desde os meninos até aos de peito; e até os bois, jumentos e ovelhas passou a fio de espada.

20 And Abiathar, one of the sons of Ahimelech, the son of Ahitub, got away and went in flight after David;
20 Porém escapou um dos filhos de Aimeleque, filho de Aitube, cujo nome era Abiatar, o qual fugiu atrás de Davi.

21 And gave him the news of how Saul had put to death the Lord’s priests.
21 E Abiatar anunciou a Davi que Saul tinha matado os sacerdotes do SENHOR.

22 And David said to Abiathar, I was certain that day, when Doeg the Edomite was there, that he would take the news to Saul: I am responsible for the lives of all your father’s family.
22 Então, Davi disse a Abiatar: Bem sabia eu, naquele dia, que, estando ali Doegue, o edomita, não deixaria de o denunciar a Saul; eu dei ocasião contra todas as almas da casa de teu pai.

23 Keep here with me and have no fear; for he who has designs on my life has designs on yours: but with me you will be safe.
23 Fica comigo, não temas, porque quem procurar a minha morte também procurará a tua, pois estarás salvo comigo.

1 Samuel 23

1 And they sent word to David, saying, The Philistines are fighting against Keilah and taking the grain from the grain-floors.
1 E foi anunciado a Davi, dizendo: Eis que os filisteus pelejam contra Queila e saqueiam as eiras.

2 So David, questioning the Lord, said, Am I to go and make an attack on these Philistines? And the Lord said to David, Go and make an attack on the Philistines so that Keilah may be kept from falling into their hands.
2 E consultou Davi ao SENHOR, dizendo: Irei eu e ferirei estes filisteus? E disse o SENHOR a Davi: Vai, e ferirás os filisteus, e livrarás Queila.

3 And David’s men said to him, Even here in Judah we are full of fear: how much more then if we go to Keilah against the armies of the Philistines?
3 Porém os homens de Davi lhe disseram: Eis que tememos aqui em Judá, quanto mais indo a Queila contra os esquadrões dos filisteus.

4 Then David put the question to the Lord again, and the Lord answering said, Up! go down to Keilah; for I will give the Philistines into your hands.
4 Então, Davi tornou a consultar o SENHOR, e o SENHOR lhe respondeu e disse: Levanta-te, desce a Queila, porque te dou os filisteus na tua mão.

5 So David and his men went to Keilah, and had a fight with the Philistines, and took away their cattle, and put them to the sword with great destruction. So David was the saviour of the people of Keilah.
5 Então, Davi partiu com os seus homens a Queila, e pelejou contra os filisteus, e levou os gados, e fez grande estrago entre eles; e Davi livrou os moradores de Queila.

6 Now when Abiathar, the son of Ahimelech, went in flight to David, he came down to Keilah with the ephod in his hand.
6 E sucedeu que, quando Abiatar, filho de Aimeleque, fugiu para Davi, a Queila, desceu com o éfode na mão.

7 And news was given to Saul that David had come to Keilah. And Saul said, Now God has given him into my hands; for by going into a walled town with locked doors, he has let himself be shut in.
7 E foi anunciado a Saul que Davi era vindo a Queila. E disse Saul: Deus o entregou nas minhas mãos, pois está encerrado, entrando numa cidade de portas e ferrolhos.

8 And Saul sent for all the people to come to the fight, and go down to Keilah to make an attack on David and his men.
8 Então, Saul mandou chamar a todo o povo à peleja, para que descessem a Queila, para cercar a Davi e os seus homens.

9 And it was clear to David that Saul had evil designs against him, and he said to Abiathar the priest, Come here with the ephod.
9 Sabendo, pois, Davi que Saul maquinava esse mal contra ele, disse a Abiatar, sacerdote: Traze aqui o éfode.

10 Then David said, O Lord, the God of Israel, news has been given to your servant that it is Saul’s purpose to come to Keilah and send destruction on the town because of me.
10 E disse Davi: Ó SENHOR, Deus de Israel, teu servo decerto tem ouvido que Saul procura vir a Queila, para destruir a cidade por causa de mim.

11 And now, is it true, as they have said to me, that Saul is coming? O Lord, the God of Israel, give ear to your servant, and say if these things are so. And the Lord said, He is coming down.
11 Entregar-me-ão os cidadãos de Queila na sua mão? Descerá Saul, como o teu servo tem ouvido? Ah! SENHOR, Deus de Israel, faze-o saber ao teu servo. E disse o SENHOR: Descerá.

12 Then David said, Will the men of Keilah give me and my men up to Saul? and the Lord said, They will give you up.
12 Disse mais Davi: Entregar-me-iam os cidadãos de Queila, a mim e aos meus homens, nas mãos de Saul? E disse o SENHOR: Entregariam.

13 Then David and his men, about six hundred of them, went out of Keilah, and got away wherever they were able to go. And Saul, hearing that David had got away from Keilah, did not go there.
13 Então, se levantou Davi com os seus homens, uns seiscentos, e saíram de Queila e foram-se aonde puderam; e, sendo anunciado a Saul que Davi escapara de Queila, cessou de sair contra ele.

14 And David kept in the waste land, in safe places, waiting in the hill-country in the waste land of Ziph. And Saul was searching for him every day, but God did not give him up into his hands.
14 E Davi permaneceu no deserto, nos lugares fortes, e ficou em um monte no deserto de Zife; e Saul o buscava todos os dias, porém Deus não o entregou na sua mão.

15 And David was full of fear, in the knowledge that Saul had come out to take his life; and David was in the waste land of Ziph, in Horesh.
15 Vendo, pois, Davi que Saul saíra à busca da sua vida, Davi esteve no deserto de Zife, num bosque.

16 And Saul’s son Jonathan went to David in Horesh, and made his hands strong in God;
16 Então, se levantou Jônatas, filho de Saul, e foi para Davi ao bosque, e fortaleceu a sua mão em Deus,

17 And said to him, Have no fear, for Saul my father will not get you into his power; and you will be king of Israel, and I will be by your side, and my father Saul is certain of this.
17 e disse-lhe: Não temas, que não te achará a mão de Saul, meu pai; porém tu reinarás sobre Israel, e eu serei contigo o segundo; o que também Saul, meu pai, bem sabe.

18 And the two of them made an agreement before the Lord: and David went on living in Horesh, and Jonathan went back to his house.
18 E ambos fizeram aliança perante o SENHOR. Davi ficou no bosque, e Jônatas voltou para a sua casa.

19 Then the Ziphites came up to Gibeah to see Saul, and said, Is not David living secretly among us in the strong places in Horesh, in the hill of Hachilah to the south of the waste land?
19 Então, subiram os zifeus a Saul, a Gibeá, dizendo: Não se escondeu Davi entre nós nos lugares fortes do bosque, no outeiro de Haquila, que está à mão direita de Jesimom?

20 So now, O king, have your soul’s desire and come down, and we, for our part, will give him up into the king’s hands.
20 Agora, pois, ó rei, apressadamente desce conforme todo o desejo da tua alma; por nós fica entregarmo-lo nas mãos do rei.

21 And Saul said, The Lord’s blessing will be yours, for you have had pity on me.
21 Então, disse Saul: Benditos sejais vós do SENHOR, porque vos compadecestes de mim.

22 Go now, and take more steps, and see where he is living: for they say that he is expert in deceit.
22 Ide, pois, e diligenciai ainda mais, e sabei, e notai o lugar que freqüenta e quem o tenha visto ali; porque me foi dito que é astutíssimo.

23 So take care to get knowledge of all the secret places where he is taking cover, and be certain to come back to me, and I will go with you: and without doubt, if he is anywhere in the land, I will get him, among all the families of Judah.
23 Pelo que atentai bem e informai-vos acerca de todos os esconderijos em que ele se esconde; e, então, voltai para mim com toda a certeza, e ir-me-ei convosco; e há de ser que, se estiver naquela terra, o buscarei entre todos os milhares de Judá.

24 And they went back and came to Ziph before Saul: but David and his men were in the waste land of Maon, in the dry land south of the waste land.
24 Então, se levantaram eles e se foram a Zife, adiante de Saul; Davi, porém, e os seus homens estavam no deserto de Maom, na planície, à direita de Jesimom.

25 And Saul and his men went in search of him. And David had word of it, so he came down to the rock in the waste land of Maon. And Saul, hearing of this, went after David into the waste land of Maon.
25 E Saul e os seus homens se foram em busca dele, o que anunciaram a Davi, que desceu para aquela penha e ficou no deserto de Maom; o que ouvindo Saul, seguiu a Davi para o deserto de Maom.

26 And Saul and his men went on one side of the mountain, and David and his men went on the other: and David’s purpose was to get away as quickly as possible, for fear of Saul; for Saul and his men were making a circle round David and his men in order to take them.
26 E Saul ia desta banda do monte, e Davi e os seus homens, da outra banda do monte; e sucedeu que Davi se apressou a escapar de Saul; Saul, porém, e os seus homens cercaram Davi e os seus homens, para lançar mão deles.

27 But a man came to Saul saying, Be quick and come; for the Philistines have made an attack on the land.
27 Então, veio um mensageiro a Saul, dizendo: Apressa-te e vem, porque os filisteus, com ímpeto, entraram na terra.

28 So turning back from going after David, Saul went against the Philistines: so that place was named Sela-hammah-lekoth.
28 Pelo que Saul voltou de perseguir a Davi e foi-se ao encontro dos filisteus. Por esta razão, aquele lugar se chamou Sela-Hamalecote.

29 And from there, David went up and took cover in the safe place of En-gedi.
29 E subiu Davi dali e ficou nos lugares fortes de En-Gedi.

1 Samuel 24

1 Now when Saul came back from fighting the Philistines, news was given him that David was in the waste land of En-gedi.
1 E sucedeu que, voltando Saul de perseguir os filisteus, lhe anunciaram, dizendo: Eis que Davi está no deserto de En-Gedi.

2 Then Saul took three thousand of the best men out of all Israel, and went in search of David and his men on the rocks of the mountain goats.
2 Então, tomou Saul três mil homens, escolhidos dentre todo o Israel, e foi à busca de Davi e dos seus homens, até aos cumes das penhas das cabras monteses.

3 And on the way he came to a place where sheep were kept, where there was a hollow in the rock; and Saul went in for a private purpose. Now David and his men were in the deepest part of the hollow.
3 E chegou a uns currais de ovelhas no caminho, onde estava uma caverna; e entrou nela Saul, a cobrir seus pés; e Davi e os seus homens estavam aos lados da caverna.

4 And David’s men said to him, Now is the time when the Lord says to you, I will give up your hater into your hands to do with him whatever seems good to you. Then David, getting up, took the skirt of Saul’s robe in his hand, cutting off the end of it without his knowledge.
4 Então, os homens de Davi lhe disseram: Eis aqui o dia do qual o SENHOR te diz: Eis que te dou o teu inimigo nas tuas mãos, e far-lhe-ás como te parecer bem a teus olhos. E levantou-se Davi e, mansamente, cortou a orla do manto de Saul.

5 And later, David was full of regret for cutting off Saul’s skirt.
5 Sucedeu, porém, que, depois, o coração doeu a Davi, por ter cortado a orla do manto de Saul;

6 And David said to his men, Before the Lord, never let it be said that my hand was lifted up against my lord, the man of the Lord’s selection, for the Lord’s holy oil has been put on him.
6 e disse aos seus homens: O SENHOR me guarde de que eu faça tal coisa ao meu senhor, ao ungido do SENHOR, estendendo eu a minha mão contra ele, pois é o ungido do SENHOR.

7 So with these words David kept his servants back, and did not let them make an attack on Saul. And Saul got up and went on his way.
7 E, com estas palavras, Davi conteve os seus homens e não lhes permitiu que se levantassem contra Saul; e Saul se levantou da caverna e prosseguiu o seu caminho.

8 And after that David came out of the hollow rock, and crying after Saul said, My lord the king. And when Saul gave a look back, David went down on his face and gave him honour.
8 Depois, também Davi se levantou, e saiu da caverna, e gritou por detrás de Saul, dizendo: Rei, meu senhor! E, olhando Saul para trás, Davi se inclinou com o rosto em terra e se prostrou.

9 And David said to Saul, Why do you give any attention to those who say that it is my desire to do you wrong?
9 E disse Davi a Saul: Por que dás tu ouvidos às palavras dos homens que dizem: Eis que Davi procura o teu mal?

10 Look! you have seen today how the Lord gave you up into my hands even now in the hollow of the rocks: and some would have had me put you to death, but I had pity on you: for I said, Never will my hand be lifted up against my lord, who has been marked with the holy oil.
10 Eis que este dia os teus olhos viram que o SENHOR, hoje, te pôs em minhas mãos nesta caverna, e alguns disseram que te matasse; porém a minha mão te poupou; porque disse: Não estenderei a minha mão contra o meu senhor, pois é o ungido do SENHOR.

11 And see, my father, see the skirt of your robe in my hand: for the fact that I took off the skirt of your robe and did not put you to death is witness that I have no evil purpose, and I have done you no wrong, though you are waiting for my life to take it.
11 Olha, pois, meu pai, vê aqui a orla do teu manto na minha mão; porque, cortando-te eu a orla do manto, te não matei. Adverte, pois, e vê que não há na minha mão nem mal nem prevaricação nenhuma, e não pequei contra ti; porém tu andas à caça da minha vida, para ma tirares.

12 May the Lord be judge between me and you, and may the Lord give me my rights against you, but my hand will never be lifted up against you.
12 Julgue o SENHOR entre mim e ti e vingue-me o SENHOR de ti; porém a minha mão não será contra ti.

13 There is an old saying, From the evil-doer comes evil: but my hand will never be lifted up against you.
13 Como diz o provérbio dos antigos: Dos ímpios procede a impiedade; porém a minha mão não será contra ti.

14 After whom has the king of Israel come out? for whom are you searching? for a dead dog, an insect.
14 Após quem saiu o rei de Israel? A quem persegues? A um cão morto? A uma pulga?

15 So let the Lord be judge, and give a decision between me and you, and see and give support to my cause, and keep me from falling into your hands.
15 O SENHOR, porém, será o juiz, e julgará entre mim e ti, e verá, e advogará a minha causa, e me defenderá da tua mão.

16 Now when David had said these words to Saul, Saul said, Is this your voice, David, my son? And Saul was overcome with weeping.
16 E sucedeu que, acabando Davi de falar a Saul todas estas palavras, disse Saul: É esta a tua voz, meu filho Davi? Então, Saul alçou a sua voz e chorou.

17 And he said to David, You are right and I am wrong: for you have given me back good, but I have given you evil.
17 E disse a Davi: Mais justo és do que eu; pois tu me recompensaste com bem, e eu te recompensei com mal.

18 And you have made clear to me how good you have been to me today: because, when the Lord gave me up into your hands, you did not put me to death.
18 E tu mostraste hoje que usaste comigo bem; pois o SENHOR me tinha posto em tuas mãos, e tu me não mataste.

19 If a man comes across his hater, will he let him get away safe? so may you be rewarded by the Lord for what you have done for me today.
19 Porque quem há que, encontrando o seu inimigo, o deixaria ir por bom caminho? O SENHOR, pois, te pague com bem, pelo que hoje me fizeste.

20 And now I am certain that you will be king, and that the kingdom of Israel will be made strong under your authority.
20 Agora, pois, eis que bem sei que certamente hás de reinar e que o reino de Israel há de ser firme na tua mão.

21 So give me your oath by the Lord, that you will not put an end to my seed after me or let my name be cut off from my father’s family.
21 Portanto, agora, jura-me pelo SENHOR que não desarraigarás a minha semente depois de mim, nem desfarás o meu nome da casa de meu pai.

22 And David gave Saul his oath. And Saul went back to his house; but David and his men went up to their safe place.
22 Então, jurou Davi a Saul. E foi Saul para a sua casa, porém Davi e os seus homens subiram ao lugar forte.

1 Samuel 25

1 And death came to Samuel; and all Israel came together, weeping for him, and put his body in its resting-place in his house at Ramah. Then David went down to the waste land of Maon.
1 E faleceu Samuel, e todo os filhos de Israel se ajuntaram, e o prantearam, e o sepultaram na sua casa, em Ramá. E Davi se levantou e desceu ao deserto de Parã.

2 Now there was a man in Maon whose business was in Carmel; he was a great man and had three thousand sheep and a thousand goats: and he was cutting the wool of his sheep in Carmel.
2 E havia um homem em Maom, que tinha as suas possessões no Carmelo; e era este homem mui poderoso, e tinha três mil ovelhas e mil cabras, e estava tosquiando as suas ovelhas no Carmelo.

3 Now this man was named Nabal, and his wife’s name was Abigail: she was a woman of good sense and pleasing looks: but the man was cruel and evil in his ways; he was of the family of Caleb.
3 E era o nome deste homem Nabal, e o nome de sua mulher, Abigail; e era a mulher de bom entendimento e formosa, porém o homem era duro e maligno nas obras; e era da casa de Calebe.

4 And David had word in the waste land that Nabal was cutting the wool of his sheep.
4 E ouviu Davi, no deserto, que Nabal tosquiava as suas ovelhas,

5 And David sent ten young men, and said to them, Go up to Carmel and go to Nabal, and say kind words to him in my name;
5 e enviou Davi dez jovens, e disse aos jovens: Subi ao Carmelo e, indo a Nabal, perguntai-lhe, em meu nome, como está.

6 And say this to my brother, May all be well for you: peace be to you and your house and all you have.
6 E assim direis àquele próspero: Paz tenhas, e que a tua casa tenha paz, e tudo o que tens tenha paz!

7 I have had word that you have wool-cutters: now the keepers of your sheep have been with us, and we have done them no evil, and taken nothing of theirs while they were in Carmel.
7 Agora, pois, tenho ouvido que tens tosquiadores; ora, os pastores que tens estiveram conosco; agravo nenhum lhes fizemos, nem coisa alguma lhes faltou todos os dias que estiveram no Carmelo.

8 If your young men are questioned they will say the same thing. So now, let my young men have grace in your eyes, for we are come at a good time; please give anything you may have by you to your servants and to your son David.
8 Pergunta-o aos teus jovens, e eles to dirão; estes jovens, pois, achem graça a teus olhos, porque viemos em bom dia; dá, pois, a teus servos e a Davi, teu filho, o que achares à mão.

9 And when David’s young men came, they said all this to Nabal, in David’s name, and said nothing more.
9 Chegando, pois, os jovens de Davi e tendo falado a Nabal todas aquelas palavras em nome de Davi, se calaram.

10 And Nabal gave them his answer and said, Who is David? who is the son of Jesse? there are a number of servants in these days running away from their masters.
10 E Nabal respondeu aos criados de Davi e disse: Quem é Davi, e quem é o filho de Jessé? Muitos servos há hoje, e cada um foge a seu senhor.

11 Am I to take my bread and my wine and the meat I have got ready for my wool-cutters and give it to men coming from I have no idea where?
11 Tomaria eu, pois, o meu pão, e a minha água, e a carne das minhas reses que degolei para os meus tosquiadores e o daria a homens que eu não sei de onde vêm?

12 So David’s young men, turning away, went back and gave him an account of everything he had said.
12 Então, os jovens de Davi se tornaram para o seu caminho, e voltaram, e vieram, e lhe anunciaram tudo, conforme todas estas palavras.

13 And David said to his men, Put on your swords, every one of you. And every man put on his sword; and David did the same; and about four hundred men went up with David, and two hundred kept watch over their goods.
13 Pelo que disse Davi aos seus homens: Cada um cinja a sua espada. E cada um cingiu a sua espada, e cingiu também Davi a sua; e subiram após Davi uns quatrocentos homens, e duzentos ficaram com a bagagem.

14 But one of the young men said to Nabal’s wife Abigail, David sent men from the waste land to say kind words to our master, and he gave them a rough answer.
14 Porém um dentre os jovens o anunciou a Abigail, mulher de Nabal, dizendo: Eis que Davi enviou mensageiros desde o deserto a saudar o nosso amo; porém ele se lançou a eles.

15 But these men have been very good to us; they did us no wrong and nothing of ours was touched while we were with them in the fields:
15 Todavia, aqueles homens têm-nos sido muito bons, e nunca fomos agravados deles, e nada nos faltou em todos os dias que conversamos com eles, quando estávamos no campo.

16 But day and night they were like a wall round us while we were with them, looking after the sheep.
16 De muro em redor nos serviram, assim de dia como de noite, todos os dias que andamos com eles apascentando as ovelhas.

17 So now, give thought to what you are going to do; for evil is in store for our master and all his house: for he is such a good-for-nothing person that it is not possible to say anything to him.
17 Olha, pois, agora, e vê o que hás de fazer porque já de todo determinado está o mal contra o nosso amo e contra toda a sua casa, e ele é um tal filho de Belial, que não há quem lhe possa falar.

18 Then Abigail quickly took two hundred cakes of bread and two skins full of wine and five sheep ready for cooking and five measures of dry grain and a hundred parcels of dry grapes and two hundred cakes of figs, and put them on asses.
18 Então, Abigail se apressou, e tomou duzentos pães, e dois odres de vinho, e cinco ovelhas guisadas, e cinco medidas de trigo tostado, e cem cachos de passas, e duzentas pastas de figos passados, e os pôs sobre jumentos,

19 And she said to her young men, Go on in front of me and I will come after you. But she said nothing to her husband Nabal.
19 e disse aos seus jovens: Ide adiante de mim, eis que vos seguirei de perto. Isso, porém, não declarou a seu marido Nabal.

20 Now while she was going down under cover of the mountain on her ass, David and his men came down against her, and suddenly she came face to face with them.
20 E sucedeu que, andando ela montada num jumento, desceu pelo encoberto do monte, e eis que Davi e os seus homens lhe vinham ao encontro, e encontrou-se com eles.

21 Now David had said, What was the use of my taking care of this man’s goods in the waste land, so that there was no loss of anything which was his? he has only given me back evil for good.
21 E disse Davi: Na verdade, em vão tenho guardado tudo quanto este tem no deserto, e nada lhe faltou de tudo quanto tem, e ele me pagou mal por bem.

22 May God’s punishment be on David, if when morning comes there is so much as one male of his people still living.
22 Assim faça Deus aos inimigos de Davi e outro tanto, se eu deixar até à manhã, de tudo o que tem, mesmo até um menino.

23 And when Abigail saw David, she quickly got off her ass, falling down on her face before him.
23 Vendo, pois, Abigail a Davi, apressou-se, e desceu do jumento, e prostrou-se sobre o seu rosto diante de Davi, e se inclinou à terra.

24 And falling at his feet she said, May the wrong be on me, my lord, on me: let your servant say a word to you, and give ear to the words of your servant.
24 E lançou-se a seus pés e disse: Ah! Senhor meu, minha seja a transgressão; deixa, pois, falar a tua serva aos teus ouvidos e ouve as palavras da tua serva.

25 Let my lord give no attention to Nabal, that good-for-nothing: for as his name is, so is he, a man without sense: but I, your servant, did not see the young men whom my lord sent.
25 Meu senhor, agora não faça este homem de Belial, a saber, Nabal, impressão no seu coração, porque tal é ele qual é o seu nome. Nabal é o seu nome, e a loucura está com ele, e eu, tua serva, não vi os jovens de meu senhor, que enviaste.

26 So now, my lord, by the living God and by your living soul, seeing that the Lord has kept you from the crime of blood and from taking into your hands the punishment for your wrongs, may all your haters, and those who would do evil to my lord, be like Nabal.
26 Agora, pois, meu senhor, vive o SENHOR, e vive a tua alma, que o SENHOR te impediu de vires com sangue e de que a tua mão te salvasse; e, agora, tais quais Nabal sejam os teus inimigos e os que procuram mal contra o meu senhor,

27 And let this offering, which your servant gives to my lord, be given to the young men who are with my lord.
27 e agora esta é a bênção que trouxe a tua serva a meu senhor; dê-se aos jovens que andam após as pisadas de meu senhor.

28 And may the sin of your servant have forgiveness: for the Lord will certainly make your family strong, because my lord is fighting in the Lord’s war; and no evil will be seen in you all your days.
28 Perdoa, pois, à tua serva esta transgressão, porque certamente fará o SENHOR casa firme a meu senhor, porque meu senhor guerreia as guerras do SENHOR, e não se tem achado mal em ti por todos os teus dias.

29 And though a man has taken up arms against you, putting your life in danger, still the soul of my lord will be kept safe among the band of the living with the Lord your God; and the souls of those who are against you he will send violently away from him, like stones from a bag.
29 E, levantando-se algum homem para te perseguir e para procurar a tua morte, então, a vida de meu senhor será atada no feixe dos que vivem com o SENHOR, teu Deus; porém a vida de teus inimigos se arrojará ao longe, como do meio do côncavo de uma funda.

30 And when the Lord has done for my lord all those good things which he has said he will do for you, and has made you a ruler over Israel;
30 E há de ser que, usando o SENHOR com o meu senhor conforme todo o bem que já tem dito de ti e te tiver estabelecido chefe sobre Israel,

31 Then you will have no cause for grief, and my lord’s heart will not be troubled because you have taken life without cause and have yourself given punishment for your wrongs: and when the Lord has been good to you, then give a thought to your servant.
31 então, meu senhor, não te será por tropeço, nem por pesar no coração o sangue que sem causa derramaste, nem tampouco o haver-se salvado meu senhor a si mesmo; e, quando o SENHOR fizer bem a meu senhor, lembra-te, então, da tua serva.

32 And David said to Abigail, May the Lord, the God of Israel, be praised, who sent you to me today:
32 Então, Davi disse a Abigail: Bendito o SENHOR, Deus de Israel, que hoje te enviou ao meu encontro.

33 A blessing on your good sense and on you, who have kept me today from the crime of blood and from taking into my hands the punishment for my wrongs.
33 E bendito o teu conselho, e bendita tu, que hoje me estorvaste de vir com sangue e de que a minha mão me salvasse.

34 For truly, by the living Lord, the God of Israel, who has kept me from doing you evil, if you had not been so quick in coming to me and meeting me, by dawn there would not have been in Nabal’s house so much as one male living.
34 Porque, na verdade, vive o SENHOR, Deus de Israel, que me impediu que te fizesse mal, que se tu não te apressaras e me não vieras ao encontro, não ficaria a Nabal, até à luz da manhã, nem mesmo um menino.

35 Then David took from her hands her offering: and he said to her, Go back to your house in peace; see, I have given ear to your voice, and taken your offering with respect.
35 Então, Davi tomou da sua mão o que tinha trazido e lhe disse: Sobe em paz à tua casa; vês aqui que tenho dado ouvidos à tua voz e tenho aceitado a tua face.

36 And Abigail went back to Nabal; and he was feasting in his house like a king; and Nabal’s heart was full of joy, for he had taken much wine; so she said nothing to him till dawn came.
36 E, vindo Abigail a Nabal, eis que tinha em sua casa um banquete, como banquete de rei; e o coração de Nabal estava alegre nele, e ele já mui embriagado, pelo que não lhe deu a entender palavra alguma, pequena nem grande, até à luz da manhã.

37 And in the morning, when the effect of the wine was gone, Nabal’s wife gave him an account of all these things, and all the heart went out of him, and he became like stone.
37 Sucedeu, pois, que pela manhã, havendo já saído de Nabal o vinho, sua mulher lhe deu a entender aquelas palavras; e se amorteceu nele o seu coração, e ficou ele como pedra.

38 And about ten days after, the Lord sent disease on Nabal and death came to him.
38 E aconteceu que, passados quase dez dias, feriu o SENHOR a Nabal, e este morreu.

39 And David, hearing that Nabal was dead, said, May the Lord be praised, who has taken up my cause against Nabal for the shame which he put on me, and has kept back his servant from evil, and has sent on Nabal’s head the reward of his evil-doing. And David sent word to Abigail, desiring to take her as his wife.
39 E, ouvindo Davi que Nabal morrera, disse: Bendito seja o SENHOR, que pleiteou o pleito da minha afronta da mão de Nabal e deteve a seu servo do mal, fazendo o SENHOR tornar o mal de Nabal sobre a sua cabeça. E mandou Davi falar a Abigail, para tomá-la por sua mulher.

40 And when David’s servants came to Carmel, to Abigail, they said to her, David has sent us to you to take you to him as his wife.
40 Vindo, pois, os criados de Davi a Abigail, no Carmelo, lhe falaram, dizendo: Davi nos tem mandado a ti, para te tomar por sua mulher.

41 And she got up, and going down on her face to the earth, said, See, I am ready to be a servant-girl, washing the feet of the servants of my lord.
41 Então, ela se levantou, e se inclinou com o rosto em terra, e disse: Eis aqui a tua serva servirá de criada para lavar os pés dos criados de meu senhor.

42 Then Abigail got up quickly and went on her ass, with five of her young women, after the men whom David had sent; and she became David’s wife.
42 E Abigail se apressou, e se levantou, e montou num jumento com as suas cinco moças que seguiam as suas pisadas; e ela seguiu os mensageiros de Davi e foi sua mulher.

43 And David had taken Ahinoam of Jezreel, to be his wife; these two were his wives.
43 Também tomou Davi a Ainoã de Jezreel, e também ambas foram suas mulheres.

44 Now Saul had given his daughter Michal, David’s wife, to Palti the son of Laish of Gallim.
44 Porque Saul tinha dado sua filha Mical, mulher de Davi, a Palti, filho de Laís, o qual era de Galim.

1 Samuel 26

1 And the Ziphites came to Saul at Gibeah, and said, Is not David waiting secretly near us in the hill of Hachilah, before the waste land?
1 E vieram os zifeus a Saul, a Gibeá, dizendo: Não está Davi escondido no outeiro de Haquila, à entrada de Jesimom?

2 Then Saul went down to the waste land of Ziph, taking with him three thousand of the best men of Israel, to make search for David in the waste land of Ziph.
2 Então, Saul se levantou e desceu ao deserto de Zife, e com ele três mil homens escolhidos de Israel, a buscar a Davi no deserto de Zife.

3 And Saul put up his tents on the hill of Hachilah, which is in front of the waste land on the road. But David was in the waste land, and he saw that Saul was coming after him.
3 E acampou-se Saul no outeiro de Haquila, que está à entrada de Jesimom, junto ao caminho; porém Davi ficou no deserto e viu que Saul vinha após ele ao deserto.

4 And so David sent out watchers, and got word from them that Saul was certainly coming.
4 Pois Davi enviou espias e soube que Saul vinha decerto.

5 And David got up and came to the place where Saul’s tents were: and David had a view of the place where Saul was sleeping with Abner, the son of Ner, the captain of his army: and Saul was sleeping inside the ring of carts, and the tents of the people were all round him.
5 E Davi se levantou e veio ao lugar onde Saul se tinha acampado; viu Davi o lugar onde se tinha deixado Saul e Abner, filho de Ner, chefe do seu exército; e Saul estava deitado dentro do lugar dos carros, e o povo estava acampado ao redor dele.

6 Then David said to Ahimelech the Hittite, and to Abishai, the son of Zeruiah, brother of Joab, Who will go down with me to the tents of Saul? And Abishai said, I will go down with you.
6 E respondeu Davi e falou a Aimeleque, o heteu, e a Abisai, filho de Zeruia, irmão de Joabe, dizendo: Quem descerá comigo a Saul ao arraial? E disse Abisai: Eu descerei contigo.

7 So David and Abishai came down to the army by night: and Saul was sleeping inside the ring of carts with his spear planted in the earth by his head: and Abner and the people were sleeping round him.
7 Vieram, pois, Davi e Abisai de noite ao povo, e eis que Saul estava deitado, dormindo dentro do lugar dos carros, e a sua lança estava pregada na terra à sua cabeceira; e Abner e o povo estavam deitados ao redor dele.

8 Then Abishai said to David, God has given up your hater into your hands today; now let me give him one blow through to the earth with his spear, and there will be no need to give him a second.
8 Então, disse Abisai a Davi: Deus te entregou, hoje, nas mãos a teu inimigo; deixa-mo, pois, agora, encravar com a lança de uma vez na terra, e não o ferirei segunda vez.

9 And David said to Abishai Do not put him to death; for who, without sin, may put out his hand against the man on whom the Lord has put the holy oil?
9 E disse Davi a Abisai: Nenhum dano lhe faças; porque quem estendeu a sua mão contra o ungido do SENHOR e ficou inocente?

10 And David said, By the living Lord, the Lord will send destruction on him; the natural day of his death will come, or he will go into the fight and come to his end.
10 Disse mais Davi: Vive o SENHOR, que o SENHOR o ferirá, ou o seu dia chegará em que morra, ou descerá para a batalha e perecerá.

11 Never will my hand be stretched out against the man marked with the holy oil; but take the spear which is by his head and the vessel of water, and let us go.
11 O SENHOR me guarde de que eu estenda a mão contra o ungido do SENHOR; agora, porém, toma lá a lança que está à sua cabeceira e a bilha da água, e vamo-nos.

12 So David took the spear and the vessel of water from Saul’s head; and they got away without any man seeing them, or being conscious of their coming, or awaking; for they were all sleeping because a deep sleep from the Lord had come on them.
12 Tomou, pois, Davi a lança e a bilha da água, da cabeceira de Saul, e foram-se; e ninguém houve que o visse, nem que o advertisse, nem que acordasse; porque todos estavam dormindo, pois havia caído sobre eles um profundo sono do SENHOR.

13 Then David went over to the other side, and took his place on the top of a mountain some distance away, with a great space between them;
13 E Davi, passando à outra banda, pôs-se no cume do monte ao longe, de maneira que entre eles havia grande distância.

14 And crying out to the people and to Abner, the son of Ner, David said, Have you no answer to give, Abner? Then Abner said, Who is that crying out to the king?
14 E Davi bradou ao povo e a Abner, filho de Ner, dizendo: Não responderás, Abner? Então, Abner respondeu e disse: Quem és tu, que bradas ao rei?

15 And David said to Abner, Are you not a man of war? is there any other like you in Israel? why then have you not kept watch over your lord the king? for one of the people came in to put the king your lord to death.
15 Então, disse Davi a Abner: Porventura, não és varão? E quem há em Israel como tu? Por que, pois, não guardaste tu o rei, teu senhor? Porque um do povo veio para destruir o rei, teu senhor.

16 What you have done is not good. By the living Lord, death is the right fate for you, because you have not kept watch over your lord, the man on whom the Lord has put the holy oil. Now see, where is the king’s spear, and the vessel of water which was by his head?
16 Não é bom isso que fizeste; vive o SENHOR, que sois dignos de morte, vós que não guardastes a vosso senhor, o ungido do SENHOR; vede, pois, agora, onde está a lança do rei e a bilha da água, que tinha à sua cabeceira.

17 And Saul, conscious that the voice was David’s, said, Is that your voice, David, my son? And David said, It is my voice, O my lord king.
17 Então, conheceu Saul a voz de Davi e disse: Não é esta a tua voz, meu filho Davi? E disse Davi: Minha voz é, ó rei, meu senhor.

18 And he said, Why does my lord go armed against his servant? what have I done? or what evil is there in me?
18 Disse mais: Por que persegue o meu senhor assim o seu servo? Pois que fiz eu? E que maldade se acha nas minhas mãos?

19 Let my lord the king give ear now to the words of his servant. If it is the Lord who is moving you against me, let him take an offering: but if it is the children of men, may they be cursed before the Lord, for driving me out today and keeping me from my place in the heritage of the Lord, saying, Go, be the servant of other gods.
19 Ouve, pois, agora, te rogo, ó rei, meu senhor, as palavras de teu servo: Se o SENHOR te incita contra mim, cheire ele a oferta de manjares; porém, se são os filhos dos homens, malditos sejam perante o SENHOR; pois eles me têm repelido hoje, para que eu não fique apegado à herança do SENHOR, dizendo: Vai, serve a outros deuses.

20 Then do not let my blood be drained out on the earth away from the face of the Lord: for the king of Israel has come out to take my life, like one going after birds in the mountains.
20 Agora, pois, não se derrame o meu sangue na terra diante do SENHOR; pois saiu o rei de Israel em busca de uma pulga, como quem persegue uma perdiz nos montes.

21 Then Saul said, I have done wrong: come back to me, David my son: I will do you no more wrong, because my life was dear to you today truly, I have been foolish and my error is very great.
21 Então, disse Saul: Pequei; volta, meu filho Davi, porque não mandarei fazer-te mal; porque foi hoje preciosa a minha vida aos teus olhos. Eis que procedi loucamente e errei grandissimamente.

22 Then David said, Here is the king’s spear! let one of the young men come over and get it.
22 Davi, então, respondeu e disse: Eis aqui a lança do rei; passe cá um dos jovens e leve-a.

23 And the Lord will give to every man the reward of his righteousness and his faith: because the Lord gave you into my hands today, and I would not put out my hand against the man who has been marked with the holy oil.
23 O SENHOR, porém, pague a cada um a sua justiça e a sua lealdade; pois o SENHOR te tinha dado hoje na minha mão, porém não quis estender a minha mão contra o ungido do SENHOR.

24 And so, as your life was dear to me today, may my life be dear to the Lord, and may he make me free from all my troubles.
24 E eis que, assim como foi a tua vida hoje de tanta estima aos meus olhos, de outra tanta estima seja a minha vida aos olhos do SENHOR, e ele me livre de toda tribulação.

25 Then Saul said to David, May a blessing be on you, David, my son; you will do great things and without doubt you will overcome. Then David went on his way, and Saul went back to his place.
25 Então, Saul disse a Davi: Bendito sejas tu, meu filho Davi; pois grandes coisas farás e também prevalecerás. Então, Davi se foi pelo seu caminho, e Saul voltou para o seu lugar.

1 Samuel 27

1 And David said to himself, Some day death will come to me by the hand of Saul: the only thing for me to do is to get away into the land of the Philistines; then Saul will give up hope of taking me in any part of the land of Israel: and so I may be able to get away from him.
1 Disse, porém, Davi no seu coração: Ora, ainda algum dia perecerei pela mão de Saul; não há coisa melhor para mim do que escapar apressadamente para a terra dos filisteus; para que Saul perca a esperança de mim e cesse de me buscar por todos os termos de Israel; e assim escaparei da sua mão.

2 So David and the six hundred men who were with him went over to Achish, the son of Maoch, king of Gath.
2 Então, Davi se levantou e passou com os seiscentos homens que com ele estavam a Aquis, filho de Maoque, rei de Gate.

3 And David and his men were living with Achish at Gath; every man had his family with him, and David had his two wives, Ahinoam of Jezreel, and Abigail of Carmel, who had been the wife of Nabal.
3 E Davi ficou com Aquis em Gate, ele e os seus homens, cada um com a sua casa; Davi, com ambas as suas mulheres, Ainoã, a jezreelita, e Abigail, a mulher de Nabal, o carmelita.

4 And Saul, hearing that David had gone to Gath, went after him no longer.
4 E, sendo Saul avisado de que Davi tinha fugido para Gate, não cuidou mais em o buscar.

5 Then David said to Achish, If now I have grace in your eyes, let me have a place in one of the smaller towns of your land, to be my living-place; for it is not right for your servant to be living with you in the king’s town.
5 E disse Davi a Aquis: Se eu tenho achado graça aos teus olhos, dá-me lugar numa das cidades da terra, para que ali habite; pois por que razão habitaria o teu servo contigo na cidade real?

6 So Achish straight away gave him Ziklag: and for that reason Ziklag has been the property of the kings of Judah to this day.
6 Então, lhe deu Aquis, naquele dia, a cidade de Ziclague (pelo que Ziclague pertence aos reis de Judá, até ao dia de hoje).

7 And David was living in the land of the Philistines for the space of a year and four months.
7 E foi o número dos dias que Davi habitou na terra dos filisteus um ano e quatro meses.

8 And David and his men went up and made attacks on the Geshurites and the Girzites and the Amalekites; for these were the people who were living in the land from Telam on the way to Shur, as far as Egypt.
8 E subia Davi com os seus homens, e deram sobre os gesuritas, e os gersitas, e os amalequitas; porque antigamente eram estes os moradores da terra desde como quem vai para Sur até à terra do Egito.

9 And David again and again made attacks on the land till not a man or a woman was still living; and he took away the sheep and the oxen and the asses and the camels and the clothing; and he came back to Achish.
9 E Davi feria aquela terra, e não dava vida nem a homem nem a mulher, e tomava ovelhas, e vacas, e jumentos, e camelos, e vestes; e voltava e vinha a Aquis.

10 And every time Achish said, Where have you been fighting today? David said, Against the South of Judah and the South of the Jerahmeelites and the South of the Kenites.
10 E dizendo Aquis: Sobre onde destes hoje? Davi dizia: Sobre o Sul de Judá, e sobre o Sul dos jerameleus, e sobre o Sul dos queneus.

11 Not one living man or woman did David ever take back with him to Gath, fearing that they might give an account of what had taken place, and say, This is what David did, and so has he been doing all the time while he has been living in the land of the Philistines.
11 E Davi não dava vida nem a homem nem a mulher, para trazê-los a Gate, dizendo: Para que, porventura, não nos denunciem, dizendo: Assim Davi o fazia. E este era o seu costume por todos os dias que habitou na terra dos filisteus.

12 And Achish had belief in what David said, saying, He has made himself hated by all his people Israel, and so he will be my servant for ever.
12 E Aquis confiava em Davi, dizendo: Fez-se ele por certo aborrecível para com o seu povo em Israel; pelo que me será por servo para sempre.

1 Samuel 28

1 Now in those days the Philistines got their forces together to make war on Israel. And Achish said to David, Certainly you and your men are to go out with me to the fight.
1 E sucedeu, naqueles dias, que, juntando os filisteus os seus exércitos para a peleja, para fazer guerra contra Israel, disse Aquis a Davi: Sabe, decerto, que comigo sairás ao arraial, tu e os teus homens.

2 And David said to Achish, You will see now what your servant will do. And Achish said to David, Then I will make you keeper of my head for ever.
2 Então, disse Davi a Aquis: Assim saberás tu o que fará o teu servo. E disse Aquis a Davi: Por isso, te terei por guarda da minha cabeça para sempre.

3 Now Samuel was dead, and all Israel, after weeping for him, had put his body in its last resting-place in Ramah, his town. And Saul had put away from the land all those who had control of spirits and who made use of secret arts.
3 E já Samuel era morto, e todo o Israel o tinha chorado e o tinha sepultado em Ramá, que era a sua cidade; e Saul tinha desterrado os adivinhos e os encantadores.

4 And the Philistines came together and put their forces in position in Shunem; and Saul got all Israel together and they took up their positions in Gilboa.
4 E ajuntaram-se os filisteus, e vieram, e acamparam-se em Suném; e ajuntou Saul a todo o Israel, e se acamparam em Gilboa.

5 And when Saul saw the Philistine army he was troubled, and his heart was moved with fear.
5 E, vendo Saul o arraial dos filisteus, temeu, e estremeceu muito o seu coração.

6 And when Saul went for directions to the Lord, the Lord gave him no answer, by a dream or by the Urim or by the prophets.
6 E perguntou Saul ao SENHOR, porém o SENHOR lhe não respondeu, nem por sonhos, nem por Urim, nem por profetas.

7 Then Saul said to his servants, Get me a woman who has control of a spirit so that I may go to her and get directions. And his servants said to him, There is such a woman at En-dor.
7 Então, disse Saul aos seus criados: Buscai-me uma mulher que tenha o espírito de feiticeira, para que vá a ela e a consulte. E os seus criados lhe disseram: Eis que em En-Dor há uma mulher que tem o espírito de adivinhar.

8 So Saul, putting on other clothing, so that he might not be seen to be the king, took two men with him and went to the woman by night; and he said, Now, with the help of the spirit which you have, make the person whose name I will give you come up.
8 E Saul se disfarçou e vestiu outras vestes, e foi ele e com ele dois homens, e de noite vieram à mulher; e disse: Peço-te que me adivinhes pelo espírito de feiticeira e me faças subir a quem eu te disser.

9 And the woman said to him, But you have knowledge of what Saul has done, how he has put away out of the land those who have control of spirits and the users of secret arts: why would you, by a trick, put me in danger of death?
9 Então, a mulher lhe disse: Eis aqui tu sabes o que Saul fez, como tem destruído da terra os adivinhos e os encantadores; por que, pois, me armas um laço à minha vida, para me fazer matar?

10 And Saul made an oath to her by the Lord, saying, By the living Lord, no punishment will come to you for this.
10 Então, Saul lhe jurou pelo SENHOR, dizendo: Vive o SENHOR, que nenhum mal te sobrevirá por isso.

11 Then the woman said, Who am I to let you see? And he said, Make Samuel come up for me.
11 A mulher, então, lhe disse: A quem te farei subir? E disse ele: Faze-me subir a Samuel.

12 And the woman saw that it was Saul, and she gave a loud cry, and said to Saul, Why have you made use of deceit? for you are Saul.
12 Vendo, pois, a mulher a Samuel, gritou em alta voz; e a mulher falou a Saul, dizendo: Por que me tens enganado? Pois tu mesmo és Saul.

13 And the king said to her, Have no fear: what do you see? And the woman said to Saul, I see a god coming up out of the earth.
13 E o rei lhe disse: Não temas; porém que é o que vês? Então, a mulher disse a Saul: Vejo deuses que sobem da terra.

14 And he said to her, What is his form? And she said, It is an old man coming up covered with a robe. And Saul saw that it was Samuel, and with his face bent down to the earth he gave him honour.
14 E lhe disse: Como é a sua figura? E disse ela: Vem subindo um homem ancião e está envolto numa capa. Entendendo Saul que era Samuel, inclinou-se com o rosto em terra e se prostrou.

15 And Samuel said to Saul, Why have you made me come up, troubling my rest? And Saul in answer said, I am in great danger; for the Philistines are making war on me, and God has gone away from me and will no longer give me any answer, by the prophets or by dreams: so I have sent for you to make clear to me what I am to do.
15 Samuel disse a Saul: Por que me desinquietaste, fazendo-me subir? Então, disse Saul: Mui angustiado estou, porque os filisteus guerreiam contra mim, e Deus se tem desviado de mim e não me responde mais, nem pelo ministério dos profetas, nem por sonhos; por isso, te chamei a ti, para que me faças saber o que hei de fazer.

16 And Samuel said, Why do you put your questions to me, seeing that God has gone away from you and is on the side of him who is against you?
16 Então, disse Samuel: Por que, pois, a mim me perguntas, visto que o SENHOR te tem desamparado e se tem feito teu inimigo?

17 And the Lord himself has done what I said: the Lord has taken the kingdom out of your hand and given it to your neighbour David;
17 Porque o SENHOR tem feito para contigo como pela minha boca te disse, e o SENHOR tem rasgado o reino da tua mão, e o tem dado ao teu companheiro Davi.

18 Because you did not do what the Lord said, and did not give effect to his burning wrath against Amalek. So the Lord has done this thing to you today.
18 Como tu não deste ouvidos à voz do SENHOR e não executaste o fervor da sua ira contra Amaleque, por isso, o SENHOR te fez hoje isso.

19 And more than this, the Lord will give Israel up with you into the hands of the Philistines: and tomorrow you and your sons will be with me: and the Lord will give up the army of Israel into the hands of the Philistines.
19 E o SENHOR entregará também a Israel contigo na mão dos filisteus, e amanhã tu e teus filhos estareis comigo; e o arraial de Israel o SENHOR entregará na mão dos filisteus.

20 Then Saul went down flat on the earth, and was full of fear because of Samuel’s words: and there was no strength in him, for he had taken no food all that day or all that night.
20 E, imediatamente, Saul caiu estendido por terra e grandemente temeu por causa daquelas palavras de Samuel; e não houve força nele, porque não tinha comido pão todo aquele dia e toda aquela noite.

21 And the woman came to Saul and saw that he was in great trouble, and said to him, See now, your servant has given ear to your words, and I have put my life in danger by doing what you said.
21 Então, veio a mulher a Saul e, vendo que estava tão perturbado, disse-lhe: Eis que deu ouvidos a tua criada à tua voz, e pus a minha vida na minha mão e ouvi as palavras que disseste.

22 So now, give ear to the voice of your servant, and let me give you a little bread; and take some food to give you strength when you go on your way.
22 Agora, pois, ouve também tu as palavras da tua serva, e porei um bocado de pão diante de ti, e come, para que tenhas forças para te pores a caminho.

23 But he would not, saying, I have no desire for food. But his servants, together with the woman, made him take food, and he gave way to them. So he got up from the earth, and took his seat on the bed.
23 Porém ele o recusou e disse: Não comerei. Porém os seus criados e a mulher o constrangeram; e deu ouvidos à sua voz. E levantou-se do chão e se assentou sobre uma cama.

24 And the woman had in the house a young cow, made fat for food; and she put it to death straight away; and she took meal and got it mixed and made unleavened bread;
24 E tinha a mulher em casa uma bezerra cevada, e se apressou, e a degolou, e tomou farinha, e a amassou, e a cozeu em bolos asmos.

25 And she put it before Saul and his servants, and they had a meal. Then they got up and went away the same night.
25 E os trouxe diante de Saul e de seus criados, e comeram. Depois, levantaram-se e se foram naquela mesma noite.

1 Samuel 29

1 Now the Philistines got all their army together at Aphek: and the Israelites put their forces in position by the fountain in Jezreel.
1 E ajuntaram os filisteus todos os seus exércitos em Afeca, e acamparam-se os israelitas junto à fonte que está em Jezreel.

2 And the lords of the Philistines went on with their hundreds and their thousands, and David and his men came after with Achish.
2 E os príncipes dos filisteus se foram para lá com centenas e com milhares; porém Davi e os seus homens iam com Aquis na retaguarda.

3 Then the rulers of the Philistines said, What are these Hebrews doing here? And Achish said to the rulers of the Philistines, Is this not David, the servant of Saul the king of Israel, who has been with me for a year or two, and I have never seen any wrong in him from the time when he came to me till now?
3 Disseram, então, os príncipes dos filisteus: Que fazem aqui estes hebreus? E disse Aquis aos príncipes dos filisteus: Não é este Davi, o criado de Saul, rei de Israel, que esteve comigo há alguns dias ou anos? E coisa nenhuma achei nele, desde o dia em que se revoltou até ao dia de hoje.

4 But the rulers of the Philistines were angry with him, and said to him, Make the man go back to the place you have given him; do not let him go down with us to the fight, or he may be turned against us and be false to us: for how will this man make peace with his lord? will it not be with the heads of these men?
4 Porém os príncipes dos filisteus muito se indignaram contra ele; e disseram-lhe os príncipes dos filisteus: Faze voltar a este homem, e torne ao seu lugar em que tu o puseste e não desça conosco à batalha, para que não se nos torne na batalha em adversário; porque com que aplacaria este a seu senhor? Porventura, não seria com as cabeças destes homens?

5 Is this not David, who was named in their songs, when in the dance they said to one another, Saul has put to death thousands, and David tens of thousands?
5 Não é este aquele Davi, de quem uns aos outros respondiam nas danças, dizendo: Saul feriu os seus milhares, porém Davi, as suas dezenas de milhares?

6 Then Achish sent for David and said to him, By the living Lord, you are upright, and everything you have done with me in the army has been pleasing to me: I have seen no evil in you from the day when you came to me till now: but still, the lords are not pleased with you.
6 Então, Aquis chamou a Davi e disse-lhe: Vive o SENHOR, que tu és reto, e que a tua entrada e a tua saída comigo no arraial são boas aos meus olhos; porque nenhum mal em ti achei, desde o dia em que a mim vieste até ao dia de hoje; porém aos olhos dos príncipes não agradas.

7 So now go back, and go in peace, so that you do not make the lords of the Philistines angry.
7 Volta, pois, agora, e volta em paz; para que não faças mal aos olhos dos príncipes dos filisteus.

8 And David said to Achish, But what have I done? what have you seen in your servant while I have been with you till this day, that I may not go and take up arms against those who are now making war on my lord the king?
8 Então, Davi disse a Aquis: Por quê? Que fiz? Ou que achaste no teu servo, desde o dia em que estive diante de ti até ao dia de hoje, para que não vá e peleje contra os inimigos do rei, meu senhor?

9 And Achish in answer said, It is true that in my eyes you are good, like an angel of God: but still, the rulers of the Philistines have said, He is not to go up with us to the fight.
9 Respondeu, porém, Aquis e disse a Davi: Bem o sei; e que, na verdade, aos meus olhos és bom como um anjo de Deus; porém disseram os príncipes dos filisteus: Não suba este conosco à batalha.

10 So get up early in the morning, with the servants of your lord who are with you, and go to the place I have given you, and have no evil design in your heart, for you are good in my eyes; but when there is light enough in the morning, go away.
10 Agora, pois, amanhã de madrugada, levanta-te com os criados de teu senhor, que têm vindo contigo; e, levantando-vos pela manhã de madrugada e havendo luz, parti.

11 So David and his men got up early in the morning to go back to the land of the Philistines. And the Philistines went up to Jezreel.
11 Então, Davi de madrugada se levantou, ele e os seus homens, para partirem pela manhã e voltarem à terra dos filisteus; e os filisteus subiram a Jezreel.

1 Samuel 30

1 Now when David and his men came to Ziklag on the third day, the Amalekites had made an attack on the South and on Ziklag, and had overcome Ziklag and put it on fire;
1 Sucedeu, pois, que, chegando Davi e os seus homens ao terceiro dia a Ziclague, já os amalequitas com ímpeto tinham dado sobre o Sul e sobre Ziclague, e tinham ferido a Ziclague, e a tinham posto a fogo.

2 And had made the women and all who were there, small and great, prisoners: they had not put any of them to death, but had taken them all away.
2 E levaram cativas as mulheres que estavam nela, porém a ninguém mataram, nem pequenos nem grandes; tão-somente os levaram consigo e foram pelo seu caminho.

3 And when David and his men came to the town, they saw that it had been burned down, and their wives and their sons and daughters had been made prisoners.
3 E Davi e os seus homens vieram à cidade, e eis que estava queimada a fogo, e suas mulheres, seus filhos e suas filhas eram levados cativos.

4 Then David and the people who were with him gave themselves up to weeping till they were able to go on weeping no longer.
4 Então, Davi e o povo que se achava com ele alçaram a sua voz e choraram, até que neles não houve mais força para chorar.

5 And David’s two wives, Ahinoam of Jezreel and Abigail, the wife of Nabal of Carmel, had been made prisoners.
5 Também as duas mulheres de Davi foram levadas cativas; Ainoã, a jezreelita, e Abigail, a mulher de Nabal, o carmelita.

6 And David was greatly troubled; for the people were talking of stoning him, because their hearts were bitter, every man sorrowing for his sons and his daughters: but David made himself strong in the Lord his God.
6 E Davi muito se angustiou, porque o povo falava de apedrejá-lo, porque o ânimo de todo o povo estava em amargura, cada um por causa dos seus filhos e das suas filhas; todavia, Davi se esforçou no SENHOR, seu Deus.

7 And David said to Abiathar the priest, the son of Ahimelech, Come here to me with the ephod. And Abiathar took the ephod to David.
7 E disse Davi a Abiatar, o sacerdote, filho de Aimeleque: Traze-me, peço-te, aqui o éfode. E Abiatar trouxe o éfode a Davi.

8 Then David, questioning the Lord, said, Am I to go after this band? will I be able to overtake them? And in answer he said, Go after them, for you will certainly overtake them, and get back everything.
8 Então, consultou Davi ao SENHOR, dizendo: Perseguirei eu a esta tropa? Alcançá-la-ei? E o SENHOR lhe disse: Persegue-a, porque, decerto, a alcançarás e tudo libertarás.

9 So David went, and his six hundred men went with him, and they came to the stream Besor.
9 Partiu, pois, Davi, ele e os seiscentos homens que com ele se achavam, e chegaram ao ribeiro de Besor, onde os que ficaram atrás pararam.

10 And David, with four hundred men, went on: but two hundred of them were overcome with weariness, and not able to go across the stream.
10 E seguiu-os Davi, ele e os quatrocentos homens, pois que duzentos homens ficaram atrás, por não poderem, de cansados que estavam, passar o ribeiro de Besor.

11 And in the fields they saw an Egyptian whom they took to David, and they gave him bread, and he had a meal, and they gave him water for drink;
11 E acharam no campo um homem egípcio e o trouxeram a Davi; deram-lhe pão, e comeu, e deram-lhe a beber água.

12 And they gave him part of a cake of figs and some dry grapes; and after the food, his spirit came back to him, for he had had no food or drink for three days and nights.
12 Deram-lhe também um pedaço de massa de figos secos e dois cachos de passas, e comeu; e voltou-lhe o seu espírito, porque havia três dias e três noites que não tinha comido pão nem bebido água.

13 And David said to him, Whose man are you and where do you come from? And he said, I am a young man of Egypt, servant to an Amalekite; and my master went on without me because three days back I became ill.
13 Então, Davi lhe disse: De quem és tu e de onde és? E disse o moço egípcio: Sou servo de um homem amalequita, e meu senhor me deixou, porque adoeci há três dias.

14 We made an attack on the south part of the country of the Cherethites, and on the land which is Judah’s, and on the south of Caleb; and we put Ziklag on fire.
14 Nós demos com ímpeto para a banda do sul dos queretitas, e para a banda de Judá, e para a banda do sul de Calebe e pusemos fogo a Ziclague.

15 And David said to him, Will you take me down to this band? And he said, If you give me your oath that you will not put me to death or give me up to my master, I will take you to them.
15 E disse-lhe Davi: Poderias, descendo, guiar-me a essa tropa? E disse-lhe: Por Deus, me jura que me não matarás, nem me entregarás na mão de meu senhor, e, descendo, te guiarei a essa tropa.

16 And when he had taken him down, they saw them all, seated about on all sides, feasting and drinking among all the mass of goods which they had taken from the land of the Philistines and the land of Judah.
16 E, descendo, o guiou. E eis que estavam espalhados sobre a face de toda a terra, comendo, e bebendo, e dançando, por todo aquele grande despojo que tomaram da terra dos filisteus e da terra de Judá.

17 And David went on fighting them from evening till the evening of the day after; and not one of them got away but only four hundred young men who went in flight on camels.
17 E feriu-os Davi, desde o crepúsculo até à tarde do dia seguinte, e nenhum deles escapou, senão só quatrocentos jovens que, montados sobre camelos, fugiram.

18 And David got back everything the Amalekites had taken; and he got back his two wives.
18 Assim, livrou Davi tudo quanto tomaram os amalequitas; também as suas duas mulheres livrou Davi.

19 There was no loss of anything, small or great, sons or daughters or goods or anything which they had taken away: David got it all back.
19 E ninguém lhes faltou, desde o menor até ao maior e até os filhos e as filhas; e também desde o despojo até tudo quanto lhes tinham tomado: tudo Davi tornou a trazer.

20 And they took all the flocks and herds, and driving them in front of him, said, These are David’s.
20 Também tomou Davi todas as ovelhas e vacas, e levavam-nas diante do outro gado e diziam: Este é o despojo de Davi.

21 And David came to the two hundred men, who because of weariness had not gone with him, but were waiting at the stream Besor: and they went out, meeting David and the people who were with him; and when they came near them, they said, How are you?
21 E, chegando Davi aos duzentos homens que, de cansados que estavam, não puderam seguir a Davi e que deixaram ficar no ribeiro de Besor, estes saíram ao encontro de Davi e do povo que com ele vinha; e, chegando-se Davi ao povo, os saudou em paz.

22 Then the bad and good-for-nothing men among those who went with David said, Because they did not go with us, we will give them nothing of the goods which we have got back, but only to every man his wife and children, so that he may take them and go.
22 Então, todos os maus e filhos de Belial, dentre os homens que tinham ido com Davi, responderam e disseram: Visto que não foram conosco, não lhes daremos do despojo que libertamos; mas que leve cada um sua mulher e seus filhos e se vá.

23 Then David said, You are not to do this, my brothers, after what the Lord has given us, who has kept us safe and given up the band which came against us into our hands.
23 Porém Davi disse: Não fareis assim, irmãos meus, com o que nos deu o SENHOR, que nos guardou e entregou a tropa que contra nós vinha nas nossas mãos.

24 Who is going to give any attention to you in this question? for an equal part will be given to him who went to the fight and to him who was waiting by the goods: they are all to have the same.
24 E quem em tal vos daria ouvidos? Porque qual é a parte dos que desceram à peleja, tal também será a parte dos que ficaram com a bagagem; igualmente repartirão.

25 And so he made it a rule and an order for Israel from that day till now.
25 O que assim foi desde aquele dia em diante, porquanto o pôs por estatuto e direito em Israel, até ao dia de hoje.

26 And when David came to Ziklag, he sent some of the goods to the responsible men of Judah, and to his friends, saying, Here is an offering for you from the goods of those who were fighting against the Lord;
26 E, chegando Davi a Ziclague, enviou do despojo aos anciãos de Judá, seus amigos, dizendo: Eis aí para vós uma bênção do despojo dos inimigos do SENHOR:

27 He sent to those who were in Beth-el, and in Ramah of the South, and in Jattir;
27 aos de Betel, e aos de Ramote do Sul, e aos de Jatir,

28 And to those in Arara and Eshtemoa
28 e aos de Aroer, e aos de Sifmote, e aos de Estemoa,

29 and Carmel and in the towns of the Jerahmeelites, and in the towns of the Kenites;
29 e aos de Racal, e aos que estavam nas cidades jerameelitas e nas cidades dos queneus,

30 And to those who were in Hormah and in Bor-ashan and in Athach;
30 e aos de Horma, e aos de Borasã, e aos de Atace,

31 And in Hebron, and to all the places where David and his men had been living.
31 e aos de Hebrom, e a todos os lugares em que andara Davi, ele e os seus homens.

1 Samuel 31

1 Now the Philistines were fighting against Israel: and the men of Israel went in flight before the Philistines, falling down wounded in Mount Gilboa.
1 Os filisteus, pois, pelejaram contra Israel; e os homens de Israel fugiram de diante dos filisteus e caíram atravessados na montanha de Gilboa.

2 And the Philistines overtook Saul and his sons; and they put to death Jonathan and Abinadab and Malchi-shua, the sons of Saul.
2 E os filisteus apertaram com Saul e seus filhos e os filisteus mataram a Jônatas, e a Abinadabe, e a Malquisua, filhos de Saul.

3 And the fight was going badly for Saul, and the archers came across him, and he was wounded by the archers.
3 E a peleja se agravou contra Saul, e os flecheiros o alcançaram; e muito temeu por causa dos flecheiros.

4 Then Saul said to the servant who had the care of his arms, Take out your sword and put it through me, before these men without circumcision come and make sport of me. But his servant, full of fear, would not do so. Then Saul took out his sword, and falling on it, put an end to himself.
4 Então, disse Saul ao seu pajem de armas: Arranca a tua espada e atravessa-me com ela, para que, porventura, não venham estes incircuncisos, e me atravessem, e escarneçam de mim. Porém o seu pajem de armas não quis, porque temia muito; então, Saul tomou a espada e se lançou sobre ela.

5 And when his servant saw that Saul was dead, he did the same, and was united with him in death.
5 Vendo, pois, o seu pajem de armas que Saul já era morto, também ele se lançou sobre a sua espada e morreu com ele.

6 So death overtook Saul and his three sons and his servant on the same day.
6 Assim, faleceu Saul, e seus três filhos, e o seu pajem de armas, e também todos os seus homens morreram juntamente naquele dia.

7 And when the men of Israel across the valley and on the other side of Jordan saw that the army of Israel was in flight and that Saul and his sons were dead, they came out of their towns and went in flight; and the Philistines came and took them for themselves.
7 E, vendo os homens de Israel que estavam desta banda do vale e desta banda do Jordão que os homens de Israel fugiram e que Saul e seus filhos estavam mortos, desampararam as cidades e fugiram; e vieram os filisteus e habitaram nelas.

8 Now on the day after, when the Philistines came to take their goods from the dead, they saw Saul and his three sons dead on the earth in Mount Gilboa.
8 Sucedeu, pois, que, vindo os filisteus ao outro dia a despojar os mortos, acharam a Saul e a seus três filhos estirados na montanha de Gilboa.

9 And cutting off his head and taking away his war-dress, they sent word into the land of the Philistines round about, to take the news to their gods and to the people.
9 E cortaram-lhe a cabeça, e o despojaram das suas armas, e enviaram pela terra dos filisteus, em redor, a anunciá-lo no templo dos seus ídolos e entre o povo.

10 His war-dress they put in the house of Astarte; and his body was fixed on the wall of Beth-shan.
10 E puseram as suas armas no templo de Astarote e o seu corpo o afixaram no muro de Bete-Seã.

11 And when the people of Jabesh-gilead had news of what the Philistines had done to Saul,
11 Ouvindo, então, isso os moradores de Jabes-Gileade, o que os filisteus fizeram a Saul,

12 All the fighting men got up and, travelling all night, took Saul’s body and the bodies of his sons from the wall of Beth-shan; and they came to Jabesh and had them burned there.
12 todo homem valoroso se levantou, e caminharam toda a noite, e tiraram o corpo de Saul e os corpos de seus filhos do muro de Bete-Seã, e, vindo a Jabes, os queimaram.

13 And their bones they put in the earth under a tree in Jabesh; and for seven days they took no food.
13 E tomaram os seus ossos, e os sepultaram debaixo de um arvoredo, em Jabes, e jejuaram sete dias.
