2 Samuel - EN/PT

2 Samuel 1

1 Now after the death of Saul, when David, having come back from the destruction of the Amalekites, had been in Ziklag for two days;
1 E, depois da morte de Saul, voltando Davi da derrota dos amalequitas e ficando Davi dois dias em Ziclague,

2 On the third day a man came from Saul’s tents, with his clothing out of order and earth on his head: and when he came to David, he went down on the earth and gave him honour.
2 sucedeu, ao terceiro dia, que um homem veio do arraial de Saul com as vestes rotas e com terra sobre a cabeça; e sucedeu que, chegando ele a Davi, se lançou no chão e se inclinou.

3 And David said to him, Where have you come from? And he said, I have come in flight from the tents of Israel.
3 E Davi lhe disse: De onde vens? E ele lhe disse: Escapei do exército de Israel.

4 And David said to him, How did things go? Give me the news. And in answer he said, The people have gone in flight from the fight, and a great number of them are dead; and Saul and his son Jonathan are dead.
4 E disse-lhe Davi: Como foi lá isso? Peço-te, dize-me. E ele lhe respondeu: O povo fugiu da batalha, e muitos do povo caíram e morreram, assim como também Saul e Jônatas, seu filho, foram mortos.

5 And David said to the young man who gave him the news, Why are you certain that Saul and his son Jonathan are dead?
5 E disse Davi ao jovem que lhe trazia as novas: Como sabes tu que Saul e Jônatas, seu filho, são mortos?

6 And the young man said, I came by chance to Mount Gilboa, and I saw Saul supporting himself on his spear; and the war-carriages and horsemen overtook him.
6 Então, disse o jovem que lhe dava a notícia: Cheguei por acaso à montanha de Gilboa, e eis que Saul estava encostado sobre a sua lança, e eis que os carros e capitães de cavalaria apertavam com ele.

7 And looking back, he saw me and gave a cry to me. And answering him I said, Here am I.
7 E, olhando ele para trás de si, viu-me a mim e chamou-me; e eu disse: Eis-me aqui.

8 And he said to me, Who are you? And I said, I am an Amalekite.
8 E ele me disse: Quem és tu? E eu lhe disse: Sou amalequita.

9 Then he said to me, Come here to my side, and put me to death, for the pain of death has me in its grip but my life is still strong in me.
9 Então, ele me disse: Peço-te, arremessa-te sobre mim e mata-me, porque angústias me têm cercado, pois toda a minha vida está ainda em mim.

10 So I put my foot on him and gave him his death-blow, because I was certain that he would not go on living after his fall: and I took the crown from his head and the band from his arm, and I have them here for my lord.
10 Arremessei-me, pois, sobre ele, e o matei, porque bem sabia eu que não viveria depois da sua queda, e tomei a coroa que tinha na cabeça e a manilha que trazia no braço, e as trouxe aqui a meu senhor.

11 Then David gave way to bitter grief, and so did all the men who were with him:
11 Então, apanhou Davi as suas vestes e as rasgou, como também todos os homens que estavam com ele.

12 And till evening they gave themselves to sorrow and weeping, and took no food, weeping for Saul and for Jonathan, his son, and for the people of the Lord and for the men of Israel; because they had come to their end by the sword.
12 E prantearam, e choraram, e jejuaram até à tarde por Saul, e por Jônatas, seu filho, e pelo povo do SENHOR, e pela casa de Israel, porque tinham caído à espada.

13 And David said to the young man who had given him the news, Where do you come from? And he said, I am the son of a man from a strange land; I am an Amalekite.
13 Disse, então, Davi ao jovem que lhe trouxera a nova: De onde és tu? E disse ele: Sou filho de um homem estrangeiro, amalequita.

14 And David said to him, Had you no fear of stretching out your hand to put to death the one marked with the holy oil?
14 E Davi lhe disse: Como não temeste tu estender a mão para matares o ungido do SENHOR?

15 And David sent for one of his young men and said, Go near and put an end to him. And he put him to death.
15 Então, chamou Davi a um dos jovens e disse: Chega e lança-te sobre ele. E ele o feriu, e morreu.

16 And David said to him, May your blood be on your head; for your mouth has given witness against you, saying, I have put to death the man marked with the holy oil.
16 E disse-lhe Davi: O teu sangue seja sobre a tua cabeça, porque a tua própria boca testificou contra ti, dizendo: Eu matei o ungido do SENHOR.

17 Then David made this song of grief for Saul and Jonathan, his son:
17 E lamentou Davi a Saul e a Jônatas, seu filho, com esta lamentação,

18 (It is recorded in the book of Jashar for teaching to the sons of Judah) and he said:
18 dizendo ele que ensinassem aos filhos de Judá o uso do arco. Eis que está escrito no livro do Reto:

19 The glory, O Israel, is dead on your high places! How have the great ones been made low!
19 Ah! Ornamento de Israel! Nos teus altos, fui ferido; como caíram os valentes!

20 Give no news of it in Gath, let it not be said in the streets of Ashkelon; or the daughters of the Philistines will be glad, the daughters of men without circumcision will be uplifted in joy.
20 Não o noticieis em Gate, não o publiqueis nas ruas de Asquelom, para que não se alegrem as filhas dos filisteus, para que não saltem de contentamento as filhas dos incircuncisos.

21 O mountains of Gilboa, let there be no dew or rain on you, you fields of death: for there the arms of the strong have been shamed, the arms of Saul, as if he had not been marked with the holy oil.
21 Vós, montes de Gilboa, nem orvalho, nem chuva caia sobre vós nem sobre vós, campos de ofertas alçadas, pois aí desprezivelmente foi arrojado o escudo dos valentes, o escudo de Saul, como se não fora ungido com óleo.

22 From the blood of the dead, from the fat of the strong, the bow of Jonathan was not turned back, the sword of Saul did not come back unused.
22 Do sangue dos feridos, da gordura dos valentes, nunca se retirou para trás o arco de Jônatas, nem voltou vazia a espada de Saul.

23 Saul and Jonathan were loved and pleasing; in their lives and in their death they were not parted; they went more quickly than eagles, they were stronger than lions.
23 Saul e Jônatas, tão amados e queridos na sua vida, também na sua morte se não separaram! Eram mais ligeiros do que as águias, mais fortes do que os leões.

24 O daughters of Israel, have sorrow for Saul, by whom you were delicately clothed in robes of red, with ornaments of gold on your dresses.
24 Vós, filhas de Israel, chorai por Saul, que vos vestia de escarlata em delícias, que vos fazia trazer ornamentos de ouro sobre as vossas vestes.

25 How have the great ones been made low in the fight! Jonathan is dead on your high places.
25 Como caíram os valentes no meio da peleja! Jônatas nos teus altos foi ferido!

26 I am full of grief for you, my brother Jonathan: very dear have you been to me: your love for me was a wonder, greater than the love of women.
26 Angustiado estou por ti, meu irmão Jônatas; quão amabilíssimo me eras! Mais maravilhoso me era o teu amor do que o amor das mulheres.

27 How have the great ones been made low, and the arms of war broken!
27 Como caíram os valentes, e pereceram as armas de guerra!

2 Samuel 2

1 Now after this, David, questioning the Lord, said, Am I to go up into any of the towns of Judah? And the Lord said to him, Go up. And David said, Where am I to go? And he said, To Hebron.
1 E sucedeu, depois disso, que Davi consultou ao SENHOR, dizendo: Subirei a alguma das cidades de Judá? E disse-lhe o SENHOR: Sobe. E disse Davi: Para onde subirei? E disse: Para Hebrom.

2 So David went there, taking with him his two wives, Ahinoam of Jezreel, and Abigail, the wife of Nabal of Carmel.
2 E subiu Davi para lá, e também as suas duas mulheres, Ainoã, a jezreelita, e Abigail, a mulher de Nabal, o carmelita.

3 And David took all his men with him, every man with his family: and they were living in the towns round Hebron.
3 Fez também Davi subir os homens que estavam com ele, cada um com a sua família; e habitaram nas cidades de Hebrom.

4 And the men of Judah came there, and with the holy oil made David king over the people of Judah. And word came to David that it was the men of Jabesh-gilead who put Saul’s body in its last resting-place.
4 Então, vieram os homens de Judá e ungiram ali a Davi rei sobre a casa de Judá. E deram avisos a Davi, dizendo: Os homens de Jabes-Gileade são os que sepultaram Saul.

5 And David sent to the men of Jabesh-gilead and said to them, May the Lord give you his blessing, because you have done this kind act to Saul your lord, and have put his body to rest!
5 Então, enviou Davi mensageiros aos homens de Jabes-Gileade e disse-lhes: Benditos sejais vós do SENHOR, que fizestes tal beneficência a vosso senhor, a Saul, e o sepultastes!

6 May the Lord be good and true to you: and I myself will see that your kind act is rewarded, because you have done this thing.
6 Agora, pois, o SENHOR use convosco de beneficência e fidelidade; e também eu vos farei esse bem, porquanto fizestes isso.

7 Then let your hands be strong, and have no fear: though Saul your lord is dead, the people of Judah have made me their king.
7 Esforcem-se, pois, agora as vossas mãos, e sede homens valentes, pois Saul, vosso senhor, é morto, mas também os da casa de Judá já me ungiram a mim rei sobre si.

8 Now Abner, the son of Ner, captain of Saul’s army, had taken Saul’s son Ish-bosheth over to Mahanaim,
8 Porém Abner, filho de Ner, capitão do exército de Saul, tomou a Isbosete, filho de Saul, e o fez passar a Maanaim.

9 And made him king over Gilead and the Asherites and over Jezreel and Ephraim and Benjamin, that is, over all Israel.
9 E o constituiu rei sobre Gileade, e sobre os assuritas, e sobre Jezreel, e sobre Efraim, e sobre Benjamim, e sobre todo o Israel.

10 (Saul’s son Ish-bosheth was forty years old when he became king over Israel, and he was ruler for two years.) But Judah was on the side of David.
10 Da idade de quarenta anos era Isbosete, filho de Saul, quando começou a reinar sobre Israel, e reinou dois anos; mas os da casa de Judá seguiam a Davi.

11 And the time when David was king in Hebron over the people of Judah was seven years and six months.
11 E foi o número dos dias que Davi reinou em Hebrom, sobre a casa de Judá, sete anos e seis meses.

12 And Abner, the son of Ner, with the servants of Saul’s son Ish-bosheth, went out from Mahanaim to Gibeon.
12 Então, saiu Abner, filho de Ner, com os servos de Isbosete, filho de Saul, de Maanaim a Gibeão.

13 And Joab, the son of Zeruiah, and the servants of David, went out and came face to face with them by the pool of Gibeon; and they took up their position, facing one another on opposite sides of the pool.
13 Saíram também Joabe, filho de Zeruia, e os servos de Davi, e se encontraram uns com os outros perto do tanque de Gibeão, e pararam estes desta banda do tanque e os outros daquela banda do tanque.

14 And Abner said to Joab, Let the young men give a test of their strength before us. And Joab said, Let them do so.
14 E disse Abner a Joabe: Deixa levantar os jovens, e joguem diante de nós. E disse Joabe: Levantem-se.

15 So they got up and went over by number: twelve for Benjamin and Ish-bosheth and twelve of the servants of David.
15 Então, se levantaram e passaram, por conta, doze de Benjamim, da parte de Isbosete, filho de Saul, e doze dos servos de Davi.

16 And every one got the other by the head, driving his sword into the other’s side, so they all went down together: and that place was named the Field of Sides, and it is in Gibeon.
16 E cada um lançou mão da cabeça do outro, meteu-lhe a espada pelo lado, e caíram juntamente; de onde se chamou àquele lugar Helcate-Hazurim, que está junto a Gibeão.

17 And there was hard fighting that day; and Abner and the men of Israel gave way before the servants of David.
17 E seguiu-se, naquele dia, uma crua peleja; porém Abner e os homens de Israel foram feridos diante dos servos de Davi.

18 There were three sons of Zeruiah there, Joab and Abishai and Asahel: and Asahel was as quick-footed as a roe of the fields.
18 E estavam ali os três filhos de Zeruia, Joabe, Abisai e Asael; e Asael era ligeiro de pés, como uma das cabras monteses que há no campo.

19 Asahel went running after Abner, not turning to the right or to the left.
19 E Asael seguiu após Abner e não declinou de detrás de Abner, nem para a direita nem para a esquerda.

20 Then Abner, looking back, said, Is it you, Asahel? And he said, It is I.
20 E Abner, olhando para trás, disse: És tu Asael? E disse ele: Eu sou.

21 And Abner said, Then go to the right or to the left and put your hands on one of the fighting-men and take his arms. But Asahel would not be turned away from going after Abner.
21 Então, lhe disse Abner: Desvia-te para a direita ou para a esquerda, e lança mão de um dos jovens, e toma os seus despojos. Porém Asael não quis desviar-se de detrás dele.

22 Then again Abner said to Asahel, Go to one side, do not keep on coming after me: why will you make me put an end to you? for then I will be shamed before your brother Joab.
22 Então, Abner tornou a dizer a Asael: Desvia-te de detrás de mim; por que hei de eu ferir-te e dar contigo em terra? E como levantaria eu o meu rosto diante de Joabe, teu irmão?

23 But still he did not go to one side: so Abner gave him a back blow in the stomach with his spear, so that the spear came out at his back; and he went down on the earth, wounded to death: and all those who came to the place where Asahel went down dead, came to a stop.
23 Porém, não se querendo ele desviar, Abner o feriu com o conto da lança pela quinta costela, e a lança lhe saiu por detrás, e caiu ali e morreu naquele mesmo lugar; e sucedeu que todos os que chegavam ao lugar onde Asael caiu e morreu paravam.

24 But Joab and Abishai went after Abner: and the sun went down when they came to the hill of Ammah, which is to the east of the road through the waste land of Geba.
24 Porém Joabe e Abisai seguiram após Abner; e pôs-se o sol, chegando eles ao outeiro de Amá, que está diante de Giá, junto ao caminho do deserto de Gibeão.

25 And the men of Benjamin came together after Abner in one band, and took their places on the top of a hill.
25 E os filhos de Benjamim se ajuntaram detrás de Abner, e fizeram um batalhão, e puseram-se no cume de um outeiro.

26 Then crying out to Joab, Abner said, Are fighting and destruction to go on for ever? do you not see that the end will only be bitter? how long will it be before you send the people back and make them give up attacking their countrymen?
26 Então, Abner gritou a Joabe e disse: Consumirá a espada para sempre? Não sabes tu que por fim haverá amargura? E até quando não hás de dizer ao povo que deixe de seguir a seus irmãos?

27 And Joab said, By the living God, if you had not given the word, the people would have gone on attacking their countrymen till the morning.
27 E disse Joabe: Vive Deus, que, se não tivesses falado já desde pela manhã, o povo teria cessado cada um de seguir a seu irmão.

28 So Joab had a horn sounded, and all the people came to a stop, and gave up going after Israel and fighting them.
28 Então, Joabe tocou a buzina, e todo o povo parou, e não perseguiram mais a Israel e tampouco pelejaram mais.

29 And all that night Abner and his men went through the Arabah; they went over Jordan and through all Bithron and came to Mahanaim.
29 E caminharam Abner e os seus homens toda aquela noite pela planície; e, passando o Jordão, caminharam por todo o Bitrom, e vieram a Maanaim.

30 And Joab came back from fighting Abner: and when he had got all his men together, it was seen that nineteen of David’s men, in addition to Asahel, were not with them.
30 Também Joabe se tornou de seguir a Abner e ajuntou todo o povo, e dos servos de Davi faltaram dezenove homens além de Asael.

31 But David’s men had put to death three hundred and sixty of the men of Benjamin and of Abner’s men
31 Porém os servos de Davi feriram dentre os de Benjamim e dentre os homens de Abner a trezentos e sessenta homens, que ali ficaram mortos.

32 And they took Asahel’s body and put it in the last resting-place of his father in Beth-lehem. And Joab and his men, travelling all night, came to Hebron at dawn.
32 E levantaram a Asael e sepultaram-no na sepultura de seu pai, que estava em Belém; e Joabe e seus homens caminharam toda aquela noite, e amanheceu-lhes o dia em Hebrom.

2 Samuel 3

1 Now there was a long war between Saul’s people and David’s people; and David became stronger and stronger, but those on Saul’s side became more and more feeble.
1 E houve uma longa guerra entre a casa de Saul e a casa de Davi; porém Davi se ia fortalecendo, mas os da casa de Saul se iam enfraquecendo.

2 While David was in Hebron he became the father of sons: the oldest was Amnon, son of Ahinoam of Jezreel;
2 E a Davi nasceram filhos em Hebrom; foi o seu primogênito Amom, de Ainoã, a jezreelita;

3 And the second, Chileab, whose mother was Abigail, the wife of Nabal the Carmelite; and the third, Absalom, son of Maacah, the daughter of Talmai, king of Geshur;
3 e seu segundo, Quileabe, de Abigail, mulher de Nabal, o carmelita; e o terceiro, Absalão, filho de Maaca, filha de Talmai, rei de Gesur;

4 And the fourth, Adonijah, the son of Haggith; and the fifth, Shephatiah, the son of Abital;
4 e o quarto, Adonias, filho de Hagite; e o quinto, Sefatias, filho de Abital;

5 And the sixth, Ithream, whose mother was David’s wife Eglah. These were the sons of David, whose birth took place in Hebron.
5 e o sexto, Itreão, de Eglá, também mulher de Davi; estes nasceram a Davi em Hebrom.

6 Now while there was war between Saul’s people and David’s people, Abner was making himself strong among the supporters of Saul.
6 E, havendo guerra entre a casa de Saul e a casa de Davi, sucedeu que Abner se esforçava na casa de Saul.

7 Now Saul had among his wives a woman named Rizpah, the daughter of Aiah: and Ish-bosheth said to Abner, Why have you taken my father’s wife?
7 E tinha tido Saul uma concubina, cujo nome era Rispa, filha de Aiá; e disse Isbosete a Abner: Por que entraste à concubina de meu pai?

8 And Abner was very angry at the words of Ish-bosheth, and he said, Am I a dog’s head of Judah? I am this day doing all in my power for the cause of your father Saul and for his brothers and his friends, and have not given you up into the hands of David, and now you say I have done wrong with a woman.
8 Então, se irou muito Abner pelas palavras de Isbosete e disse: Sou eu cabeça de cão, que pertença a Judá? Ainda hoje faço beneficência à casa de Saul, teu pai, a seus irmãos e a seus amigos e te não entreguei nas mãos de Davi; e tu hoje buscas motivo para me argüires por causa da maldade de uma mulher.

9 May God’s punishment be on Abner, if I do not for David as the Lord in his oath has said,
9 Assim faça Deus a Abner e outro tanto, que, como o SENHOR jurou a Davi, assim lhe hei de fazer,

10 And if I do not take away the kingdom from the family of Saul and make David ruler over Israel and Judah from Dan as far as Beer-sheba!
10 transferindo o reino da casa de Saul e levantando o trono de Davi sobre Israel e sobre Judá, desde Dã até Berseba.

11 And so great was Ish-bosheth’s fear of Abner that he was not able to say a word in answer.
11 E nem ainda uma palavra podia responder a Abner, porque o temia.

12 And Abner sent men to David at Hebron, saying, Make an agreement with me, and I will give you my support in getting all Israel on your side.
12 Então, ordenou Abner da sua parte mensageiros a Davi, dizendo: De quem é a terra? E disse: Comigo faze a tua aliança, e eis que a minha mão será contigo, para tornar a ti todo o Israel.

13 And he said, It is well; I will make an agreement with you, but on one condition, which is, that when you come before me, Saul’s daughter Michal is to come with you; till she comes you will not see my face.
13 E disse Davi: Bem, eu farei contigo aliança, porém uma coisa te peço, que é: não verás a minha face se primeiro me não trouxeres a Mical, filha de Saul, quando vieres ver a minha face.

14 And David sent men to Saul’s son Ish-bosheth, saying, Give me back Michal, my wife, whom I made mine for the price of the private parts of a hundred Philistines.
14 Também enviou Davi mensageiros a Isbosete, filho de Saul, dizendo: Dá-me minha mulher Mical, que eu desposei por cem prepúcios de filisteus.

15 So Ish-bosheth sent and took her from her husband Paltiel, the son of Laish.
15 E enviou Isbosete e a tirou a seu marido, a Paltiel, filho de Laís.

16 And her husband went with her as far as Bahurim, weeping while he went. Then Abner said to him, Go back. And he went back.
16 E ia com ela seu marido, caminhando, e chorando detrás dela, até Baurim. Então, lhe disse Abner: Vai-te, agora, volta. E ele voltou.

17 Then Abner had a talk with the chief men of Israel, saying, In the past it was your desire to make David your king: so now, do it:
17 E praticava Abner com os anciãos de Israel, dizendo: Muito tempo há que procuráveis que Davi reinasse sobre vós.

18 For the Lord has said of David, By the hand of my servant David I will make my people Israel safe from the Philistines, and from all who are against them.
18 Fazei-o, pois, agora, porque o SENHOR falou a Davi, dizendo: Pela mão de Davi, meu servo, livrarei o meu povo das mãos dos filisteus e das mãos de todos os seus inimigos.

19 And Abner said the same things to Benjamin: and he went to David in Hebron to make clear to him what seemed good to Israel and to all the people of Benjamin.
19 E falou também Abner o mesmo aos ouvidos de Benjamim; e foi também Abner dizer aos ouvidos de Davi, em Hebrom, tudo o que era bom aos olhos de Israel e aos olhos de toda a casa de Benjamim.

20 So Abner, with twenty men, came to Hebron, to David. And David made a feast for Abner and the men who were with him.
20 E veio Abner a Davi, a Hebrom, e vinte homens com ele; e Davi fez um banquete a Abner e aos homens que com ele vinham.

21 And Abner said to David, Now I will go, and make all Israel come to my lord the king, so that they may make an agreement with you, and your kingdom may be as wide as your heart’s desire. Then David sent Abner away and he went in peace.
21 Então, disse Abner a Davi: Eu me levantarei, e irei, e ajuntarei ao rei, meu senhor, todo o Israel, para fazerem aliança contigo; e tu reinarás sobre tudo o que desejar a tua alma. Assim, despediu Davi a Abner, e foi-se ele em paz.

22 Now the servants of David and Joab had been out attacking a band of armed men, and they came back with a great store of goods taken in the fight: but Abner was no longer in Hebron with David, for he had sent him away and he had gone in peace.
22 E eis que os servos de Davi e Joabe vieram de uma sortida e traziam consigo grande despojo; e já Abner não estava com Davi em Hebrom, porque este o tinha despedido, e se tinha ido em paz.

23 When Joab and his men came, news was given them that Abner, the son of Ner, had come to the king, who had let him go away again in peace.
23 Chegando, pois, Joabe e todo o exército que vinha com ele, deram aviso a Joabe, dizendo: Abner, filho de Ner, veio ao rei; e o despediu, e foi-se em paz.

24 Then Joab came to the king, and said, What have you done? when Abner came to you why did you send him away and let him go?
24 Então, Joabe entrou ao rei e disse: Que fizeste? Eis que Abner veio ter contigo; por que, pois, o despediste de maneira que se fosse assim livremente?

25 Is it not clear to you that Abner, the son of Ner, came with deceit to get knowledge of your going out and your coming in and of all you are doing?
25 Bem conheces a Abner, filho de Ner, que te veio enganar, e saber a tua saída e a tua entrada, e entender tudo quanto fazes.

26 And when Joab had come out from David, he sent men after Abner, and they overtook him at the water-spring of Sirah, and made him come back with them: but David had no knowledge of it.
26 E Joabe, retirando-se de Davi, enviou mensageiros atrás de Abner, e o fizeram voltar desde o poço de Sira, sem que Davi o soubesse.

27 And when Abner was back in Hebron, Joab took him on one side by the doorway of the town to have a word with him quietly, and there he gave him a wound in the stomach, causing his death in payment for the death of his brother Asahel.
27 Tornando, pois, Abner a Hebrom, Joabe o tomou à parte, à entrada da porta, para lhe falar em segredo, e feriu-o ali pela quinta costela, e morreu por causa do sangue de Asael, seu irmão.

28 And when David had word of it he said, May I and my kingdom be clear for ever in the eyes of the Lord from the blood of Abner, the son of Ner:
28 O que Davi, depois, ouvindo, disse: Inocentes somos eu e o meu reino, para com o SENHOR, para sempre, do sangue de Abner, filho de Ner.

29 May it come on the head of Joab and all his father’s family: among the men of Joab’s family may there ever be some who are diseased or lepers, or who do the work of women, or are put to the sword, or are wasted from need of food!
29 Fique-se sobre a cabeça de Joabe e sobre toda a casa de seu pai, e nunca da casa de Joabe falte quem tenha fluxo, nem quem seja leproso, nem quem se atenha a bordão, nem quem caia à espada, nem quem necessite de pão.

30 So Joab and Abishai his brother put Abner to death, because he had put to death their brother Asahel in the fight at Gibeon.
30 Joabe, pois, e Abisai, seu irmão, mataram a Abner, por ter morto a Asael, seu irmão, na peleja em Gibeão.

31 And David said to Joab and all the people who were with him, Go in grief and put haircloth about you, in sorrow for Abner. And King David went after the dead body.
31 Disse, pois, Davi a Joabe e a todo o povo que com ele estava: Rasgai as vossas vestes; e cingi-vos de panos de saco e ide pranteando diante de Abner. E o rei Davi ia seguindo o féretro.

32 And they put Abner’s body to rest in Hebron; and the king and all the people were weeping loudly by the resting-place of Abner’s body.
32 E, sepultando a Abner em Hebrom, o rei levantou a sua voz e chorou junto da sepultura de Abner; e chorou todo o povo.

33 And the king made a song of grief for Abner and said, Was the death of Abner to be like the death of a foolish man?
33 E o rei, pranteando a Abner, disse: Não morreu Abner como morre o vilão?

34 Your hands were free, your feet were not chained: like the downfall of a man before evil men, so was your fall. And the weeping of the people over him went on again.
34 As tuas mãos não estavam atadas, nem os teus pés carregados de grilhões de bronze, mas caíste como os que caem diante dos filhos da maldade! Então, todo o povo chorou muito mais por ele.

35 And the people came to make David take food, while it was still day, but David with an oath said, May God’s punishment be on me if I take a taste of bread or any other thing till the sun has gone down!
35 Então, todo o povo veio fazer que Davi comesse pão, sendo ainda dia, porém Davi jurou, dizendo: Assim Deus me faça e outro tanto, se, antes que o sol se ponha, eu provar pão ou alguma coisa.

36 And all the people took note of it and were pleased: like everything the king did, it was pleasing to the people.
36 O que todo o povo entendendo, pareceu bem aos seus olhos, assim como tudo quanto o rei fez pareceu bem aos olhos de todo o povo.

37 So it was clear to Israel and to all the people on that day that the king was not responsible for the death of Abner, the son of Ner.
37 E todo o povo e todo o Israel entenderam, naquele mesmo dia, que não procedera do rei que matassem a Abner, filho de Ner.

38 And the king said to his servants, Do you not see that a chief and a great man has come to his end today in Israel?
38 Então, disse o rei aos seus servos: Não sabeis que, hoje, caiu em Israel um príncipe e um grande?

39 While I, though I am crowned king, have little strength, and these men, the sons of Zeruiah, are out of my control: may the Lord give to the evil-doer the reward of his evil-doing!
39 Eu, hoje, estou fraco, ainda que seja ungido rei; estes homens, filhos de Zeruia, são mais duros do que eu; o SENHOR pagará ao malfeitor, conforme a sua maldade.

2 Samuel 4

1 And when Saul’s son Ish-bosheth had news that Abner was dead in Hebron, his hands became feeble, and all the Israelites were troubled.
1 Ouvindo, pois, o filho de Saul que Abner morrera em Hebrom, as mãos se lhe afrouxaram, e todo o Israel pasmou.

2 And Saul’s son had two men, captains of bands, one named Baanah and the other Rechab, sons of Rimmon the Beerothite, of the tribe of Benjamin; (for Beeroth was at one time taken to be part of Benjamin:
2 E tinha o filho de Saul dois homens capitães de tropas; e era o nome de um Baaná, e o nome do outro, Recabe, filhos de Rimom, o beerotita, dos filhos de Benjamim, porque também Beerote se reputava de Benjamim.

3 But the people of Beeroth had gone in flight to Gittaim, where they have been living to this day.)
3 E tinham fugido os beerotitas para Gitaim e ali têm peregrinado até ao dia de hoje.

4 Now Jonathan, Saul’s son, had a son whose feet were damaged. He was five years old when news of the death of Saul and Jonathan came from Jezreel, and the woman who took care of him took him up and went in flight: and while she was getting him away as quickly as she was able, he had a fall and his feet were damaged. His name was Mephibosheth.
4 E Jônatas, filho de Saul, tinha um filho aleijado de ambos os pés. Era da idade de cinco anos quando as novas de Saul e Jônatas vieram de Jezreel; e sua ama o tomou e fugiu; e sucedeu que, apressando-se ela a fugir, ele caiu e ficou coxo; o seu nome era Mefibosete.

5 And Rechab and Baanah, the sons of Rimmon the Beerothite, went out and came to the house of Ish-bosheth in the heat of the day, when he was resting in the middle of the day. Now the woman who kept the door was cleaning grain, and sleep overcame her.
5 E foram os filhos de Rimom, o beerotita, Recabe e Baaná, e entraram em casa de Isbosete, no maior calor do dia, estando ele deitado a dormir, ao meio-dia.

6 And Rechab and his brother Baanah got in without being seen.
6 E ali entraram até o meio da casa, como que vindo tomar trigo, e o feriram na quinta costela; e Recabe e Baaná, seu irmão, escaparam.

7 And when they came into the house, Ish-bosheth was stretched on his bed in his bedroom; and they made an attack on him and put him to death, and, cutting off his head, they took it with them and went by the road through the Arabah all night.
7 Porque entraram na sua casa, estando ele na cama deitado na sua recâmara, e o feriram, e o mataram, e lhe cortaram a cabeça; e, tomando a sua cabeça, andaram toda a noite caminhando pela planície.

8 And they took the head of Ish-bosheth to David in Hebron, and said to the king, Here is the head of Ish-bosheth, the son of Saul your hater, who would have taken your life; the Lord has taken payment for the wrongs of my lord the king from Saul and his seed today.
8 E trouxeram a cabeça de Isbosete a Davi, a Hebrom, e disseram ao rei: Eis aqui a cabeça de Isbosete, filho de Saul, teu inimigo, que te procurava a morte; assim, o SENHOR vingou hoje ao rei, meu senhor, de Saul e da sua semente.

9 And David made answer to Rechab and his brother Baanah, the sons of Rimmon the Beerothite, and said to them, By the living Lord, who has kept me safe from all my trouble,
9 Porém Davi, respondendo a Recabe e a Baaná, seu irmão, filhos de Rimom, o beerotita, disse-lhes: Vive o SENHOR que remiu a minha alma de toda a angústia,

10 When one came to me with the news of Saul’s death, in the belief that it would be good news, I took him and put him to death in Ziklag, which was the reward I gave him for his news:
10 pois se, àquele que me trouxe novas, dizendo: Eis que Saul morto é, parecendo-lhe, porém, aos seus olhos que era como quem trazia boas-novas, eu logo lancei mão dele e o matei em Ziclague, cuidando ele que eu, por isso, lhe desse alvíssaras,

11 How much more, when evil men have put an upright person to death, in his house, sleeping on his bed, will I take payment from you for his blood, and have you cut off from the earth?
11 quanto mais a ímpios homens, que mataram um homem justo em sua casa, sobre a sua cama; agora, pois, não requereria eu o seu sangue de vossas mãos e não vos exterminaria da terra?

12 And David gave orders to his young men and they put them to death, cutting off their hands and their feet and hanging them up by the side of the pool in Hebron. But they took the head of Ish-bosheth and put it in its last resting-place with Abner’s body in Hebron.
12 E deu Davi ordem aos seus jovens que os matassem; e cortaram-lhes os pés e as mãos e os penduraram sobre o tanque de Hebrom; tomaram, porém, a cabeça de Isbosete e a sepultaram na sepultura de Abner, em Hebrom.

2 Samuel 5

1 Then all the tribes of Israel came to David in Hebron and said, Truly, we are your bone and your flesh.
1 Então, todas as tribos de Israel vieram a Davi, a Hebrom, e falaram, dizendo: Eis-nos aqui, teus ossos e tua carne somos.

2 In the past when Saul was king over us, it was you who went at the head of Israel when they went out or came in: and the Lord said to you, You are to be the keeper of my people Israel and their ruler.
2 E também dantes, sendo Saul ainda rei sobre nós, eras tu o que saías e entravas com Israel; e também o SENHOR te disse: Tu apascentarás o meu povo de Israel e tu serás chefe sobre Israel.

3 So all the responsible men of Israel came to the king at Hebron; and King David made an agreement with them in Hebron before the Lord: and they put the holy oil on David and made him king over Israel.
3 Assim, pois, todos os anciãos de Israel vieram ao rei, a Hebrom; e o rei Davi fez com eles aliança em Hebrom, perante o SENHOR; e ungiram Davi rei sobre Israel.

4 David was thirty years old when he became king, and he was king for forty years,
4 Da idade de trinta anos era Davi quando começou a reinar; quarenta anos reinou.

5 Ruling over Judah in Hebron for seven years and six months, and in Jerusalem, over all Israel and Judah, for thirty-three years.
5 Em Hebrom reinou sobre Judá sete anos e seis meses; e em Jerusalém reinou trinta e três anos sobre todo o Israel e Judá.

6 And the king and his men went to Jerusalem against the Jebusites, the people of the land: and they said to David, You will not come in here, but the blind and the feeble-footed will keep you out; for they said, David will not be able to come in here.
6 E partiu o rei com os seus homens para Jerusalém, contra os jebuseus que habitavam naquela terra e que falaram a Davi, dizendo: Não entrarás aqui, a menos que lances fora os cegos e os coxos; querendo dizer: Não entrará Davi aqui.

7 But David took the strong place of Zion, which is the town of David.
7 Porém Davi tomou a fortaleza de Sião; esta é a Cidade de Davi.

8 And that day David said, Whoever makes an attack on the Jebusites, let him go up by the water-pipe, and put to death all the blind and feeble-footed who are hated by David. And this is why they say, The blind and feeble-footed may not come into the house.
8 Porque Davi disse naquele dia: Qualquer que ferir os jebuseus e chegar ao canal, e aos coxos, e aos cegos, que a alma de Davi aborrece, será cabeça e capitão. Por isso, se diz: Nem cego nem coxo entrará nesta casa.

9 So David took the strong tower for his living-place, naming it the town of David. And David took in hand the building of the town all round, starting from the Millo.
9 Assim, habitou Davi na fortaleza e lhe chamou a Cidade de Davi; e Davi foi edificando em redor, desde Milo até dentro.

10 And David became greater and greater; for the Lord, the God of armies, was with him.
10 E Davi se ia cada vez mais aumentando e crescendo, porque o SENHOR, Deus dos Exércitos, era com ele.

11 And Hiram, king of Tyre, sent men to David, with cedar-trees and woodworkers and stoneworkers: and they made David a house.
11 E Hirão, rei de Tiro, enviou mensageiros a Davi, e madeira de cedro, e carpinteiros, e pedreiros, que edificaram a Davi uma casa.

12 And David saw that the Lord had made his position safe as king over Israel, and that he had made his kingdom great because of his people Israel.
12 E entendeu Davi que o SENHOR o confirmava rei sobre Israel e que exaltara o seu reino por amor do seu povo.

13 And David took more women and wives in Jerusalem, after he had come from Hebron: and he had more sons and daughters.
13 E tomou Davi mais concubinas e mulheres de Jerusalém, depois que viera de Hebrom; e nasceram a Davi mais filhos e filhas.

14 These are the names of those whose birth took place in Jerusalem: Shammua and Shobab and Nathan and Solomon
14 E estes são os nomes dos que lhe nasceram em Jerusalém: Samua, e Sobabe, e Natã, e Salomão,

15 And Ibhar and Elishua and Nepheg and Japhia
15 e Ibar, e Elisua, e Nefegue, e Jafia,

16 And Elishama and Eliada and Eliphelet.
16 e Elisama, e Eliada, e Elifelete.

17 And when the Philistines had news that David had been made king over Israel, they all went up in search of David; and David, hearing of it, went down to the strong place.
17 Ouvindo, pois, os filisteus que haviam ungido Davi rei sobre Israel, todos os filisteus subiram em busca de Davi; o que ouvindo Davi, desceu à fortaleza.

18 And when the Philistines came, they went in every direction in the valley of Rephaim.
18 E os filisteus vieram e se estenderam pelo vale dos Refains.

19 And David, desiring directions from the Lord, said, Am I to go up against the Philistines? will you give them up into my hands? And the Lord said, Go up, for I will certainly give up the Philistines into your hands.
19 E Davi consultou o SENHOR, dizendo: Subirei contra os filisteus? Entregar-mos-ás nas minhas mãos? E disse o SENHOR a Davi: Sobe, porque certamente entregarei os filisteus nas tuas mãos.

20 And David went to Baal-perazim, and overcame them there; and he said, The Lord has let the forces fighting against me be broken before me as a wall is broken by rushing waters. So that place was named Baal-perazim.
20 Então, veio Davi a Baal-Perazim, e feriu-os ali Davi, e disse: Rompeu o SENHOR a meus inimigos diante de mim, como quem rompe águas. Por isso, chamou o nome daquele lugar Baal-Perazim.

21 And the Philistines, when they went in flight, did not take their images with them, and David and his men took them away.
21 E deixaram ali os seus ídolos; e Davi e os seus homens os tomaram.

22 And the Philistines came up again, and went in every direction in the valley of Rephaim.
22 E os filisteus tornaram a subir e se estenderam pelo vale dos Refains.

23 And when David went for directions to the Lord, he said, You are not to go up against them in front; but make a circle round them from the back and come on them opposite the spice-trees.
23 E Davi consultou o SENHOR, o qual disse: Não subirás; mas rodeia por detrás deles e virás a eles por defronte das amoreiras.

24 Then at the sound of footsteps in the tops of the trees, go forward quickly, for the Lord has gone out before you to overcome the army of the Philistines.
24 E há de ser que, ouvindo tu um estrondo de marcha pelas copas das amoreiras, então, te apressarás; porque o SENHOR saiu, então, diante de ti, a ferir o arraial dos filisteus.

25 And David did as the Lord had said; and he overcame the Philistines, attacking them from Gibeon to near Gezer.
25 E fez Davi assim como o SENHOR lhe tinha ordenado; e feriu os filisteus desde Geba até chegar a Gezer.

2 Samuel 6

1 And David got together all the fighting-men of Israel to the number of thirty thousand;
1 E tornou Davi a ajuntar todos os escolhidos de Israel, em número de trinta mil.

2 And David, and all the people who were with him, went to Baal of Judah to get the ark of God, over which the holy name is named, the name of the Lord of armies, whose place is between the winged ones.
2 E levantou-se Davi e partiu com todo o povo que tinha consigo de Baalá de Judá, para levarem dali para cima a arca de Deus, sobre a qual se invoca o Nome, o nome do SENHOR dos Exércitos, que se assenta entre os querubins.

3 And they put the ark of God on a new cart and took it out of the house of Abinadab which was on the hill: and Uzzah and Ahio, the sons of Abinadab, were the drivers of the cart.
3 E puseram a arca de Deus em um carro novo e a levaram da casa de Abinadabe, que está em Geba; e Uzá e Aiô, filhos de Abinadabe, guiavam o carro novo.

4 And Uzzah went by the side of the ark, while Ahio went before it.
4 E, levando-o da casa de Abinadabe, que está em Geba, com a arca de Deus, Aiô ia adiante da arca.

5 And David and all the men of Israel made melody before the Lord with all their power, with songs and with corded instruments and instruments of brass.
5 E Davi e toda a casa de Israel alegravam-se perante o SENHOR, com toda sorte de instrumentos de madeira de faia, com harpas, e com saltérios, e com tamboris, e com pandeiros, e com címbalos.

6 And when they came to Nacon’s grain-floor, Uzzah put his hand on the ark of God to keep it safe in its place, for the oxen were out of control.
6 E, chegando à eira de Nacom, estendeu Uzá a mão à arca de Deus e segurou-a, porque os bois a deixavam pender.

7 And the wrath of the Lord, burning against Uzzah, sent destruction on him because he had put his hand on the ark, and death came to him there by the ark of God.
7 Então, a ira do SENHOR se acendeu contra Uzá, e Deus o feriu ali por esta imprudência; e morreu ali junto à arca de Deus.

8 And David was angry because of the Lord’s outburst of wrath against Uzzah: and he gave that place the name Perez-uzzah, which is its name to this day.
8 E Davi se contristou, porque o SENHOR abrira rotura em Uzá; e chamou aquele lugar Perez-Uzá, até ao dia de hoje.

9 And such was David’s fear of the Lord that day, that he said, How may I let the ark of God come to me?
9 E temeu Davi ao SENHOR naquele dia e disse: Como virá a mim a arca do SENHOR?

10 So David did not let the ark of the Lord come back to him to the town of David: but had it turned away and put into the house of Obed-edom the Gittite.
10 E não quis Davi retirar para si a arca do SENHOR, para a Cidade de Davi; mas Davi a fez levar à casa de Obede-Edom, o geteu.

11 And the ark of the Lord was in the house of Obed-edom the Gittite for three months: and the Lord sent a blessing on Obed-edom and all his family.
11 E ficou a arca do SENHOR em casa de Obede-Edom, o geteu, três meses; e abençoou o SENHOR a Obede-Edom e a toda a sua casa.

12 And they said to King David, The blessing of the Lord is on the family of Obed-edom and on all he has, because of the ark of God. And David went and took the ark of God from the house of Obed-edom into the town of David with joy.
12 Então, avisaram a Davi, dizendo: Abençoou o SENHOR a casa de Obede-Edom e tudo quanto tem, por amor da arca de Deus; foi, pois, Davi e trouxe a arca de Deus para cima, da casa de Obede-Edom, à Cidade de Davi, com alegria.

13 And when those who were lifting the ark of the Lord had gone six steps, he made an offering of an ox and a fat young beast.
13 E sucedeu que, quando os que levavam a arca do SENHOR tinham dado seis passos, sacrificava ele bois e carneiros cevados.

14 And David, clothed in a linen ephod, was dancing before the Lord with all his strength.
14 E Davi saltava com todas as suas forças diante do SENHOR; e estava Davi cingido de um éfode de linho.

15 So David and all the men of Israel took up the ark of the Lord with cries of joy and sounding of horns.
15 Assim subindo, levavam Davi e todo o Israel a arca do SENHOR, com júbilo e ao som das trombetas.

16 And when the ark of the Lord came into the town of David, Michal, Saul’s daughter, looking out of the window, saw King David dancing and jumping before the Lord; and to her mind he seemed foolish.
16 E sucedeu que, entrando a arca do SENHOR na Cidade de Davi, Mical, filha de Saul, estava olhando pela janela e, vendo o rei Davi, que ia bailando e saltando diante do SENHOR, o desprezou no seu coração.

17 And they took in the ark of the Lord, and put it in its place inside the tent which David had put up for it: and David made burned offerings and peace-offerings to the Lord.
17 E, introduzindo a arca do SENHOR, a puseram no seu lugar, na tenda que Davi lhe armara; e ofereceu Davi holocaustos e ofertas pacíficas perante o SENHOR.

18 And after David had made the burned offerings and the peace-offerings, he gave the people a blessing in the name of the Lord of armies.
18 E, acabando Davi de oferecer os holocaustos e ofertas pacíficas, abençoou o povo em nome do SENHOR dos Exércitos.

19 And he gave to every man and woman among all the people, among all the masses of Israel, a cake of bread and a measure of wine and a cake of dry grapes. Then all the people went away, every man to his house.
19 E repartiu a todo o povo e a toda a multidão de Israel, desde os homens até às mulheres, a cada um, um bolo de pão, e um bom pedaço de carne, e um frasco de vinho; então, foi-se todo o povo, cada um para sua casa.

20 Then David came back to give a blessing to his family. And Michal, Saul’s daughter, came out to him and said, How full of glory was the king of Israel today, who let himself be seen uncovered by his servant-girls like a foolish person uncovering himself without shame!
20 E, voltando Davi para abençoar a sua casa, Mical, filha de Saul, saiu a encontrar-se com Davi e disse: Quão honrado foi o rei de Israel, descobrindo-se hoje aos olhos das servas de seus servos, como sem vergonha se descobre qualquer dos vadios.

21 And David said to Michal, I was dancing before the Lord, who put me over your father and all his sons, to make me a ruler over the people of the Lord, over his people Israel: and I will go on playing before the Lord;
21 Disse, porém, Davi a Mical: Perante o SENHOR que me escolheu a mim antes do que a teu pai e a toda a sua casa, mandando-me que fosse chefe sobre o povo do SENHOR, sobre Israel, perante o SENHOR me tenho alegrado.

22 And I will do even worse than this, and make myself even lower in your eyes: but the servant-girls of whom you were talking will give me honour.
22 E ainda mais do que isto me envilecerei e me humilharei aos meus olhos; e das servas, de quem falaste, delas serei honrado.

23 And Michal, Saul’s daughter, had no child till the day of her death.
23 E Mical, filha de Saul, não teve filhos, até ao dia da sua morte.

2 Samuel 7

1 Now when the king was living in his house, and the Lord had given him rest from war on every side;
1 E sucedeu que, estando o rei Davi em sua casa, e que o SENHOR lhe tinha dado descanso de todos os seus inimigos em redor,

2 The king said to Nathan the prophet, See now, I am living in a house of cedar, but the ark of God is housed inside the curtains of a tent.
2 disse o rei ao profeta Natã: Ora, olha, eu moro em casa de cedros e a arca de Deus mora dentro de cortinas.

3 And Nathan said to the king, Go and do whatever is in your heart; for the Lord is with you.
3 E disse Natã ao rei: Vai e faze tudo quanto está no teu coração, porque o SENHOR é contigo.

4 Now that night the word of the Lord came to Nathan, saying,
4 Porém sucedeu, naquela mesma noite, que a palavra do SENHOR veio a Natã, dizendo:

5 Go and say to my servant David, The Lord says, Are you to be the builder of a house, a living-place for me?
5 Vai e dize a meu servo, a Davi: Assim diz o SENHOR: Edificar-me-ias tu casa para minha habitação?

6 For from the day when I took the children of Israel up out of Egypt till this day, I have had no house, but have gone from place to place in a tent.
6 Porque em casa nenhuma habitei desde o dia em que fiz subir os filhos de Israel do Egito até ao dia de hoje; mas andei em tenda e em tabernáculo.

7 In all the places where I went with all the children of Israel, did I ever say to any of the judges of Israel, to whom I gave the care of my people Israel, Why have you not made me a house of cedar?
7 E, em todo lugar em que andei com todos os filhos de Israel, falei porventura alguma palavra com qualquer das tribos de Israel, a quem mandei apascentar o meu povo de Israel, dizendo: Por que me não edificais uma casa de cedros?

8 Then say these words to my servant David, The Lord of armies says, I took you from the fields, from keeping the sheep, so that you might be a ruler over my people, over my people Israel:
8 Agora, pois, assim dirás ao meu servo, a Davi: Assim diz o SENHOR dos Exércitos: Eu te tomei da malhada, de detrás das ovelhas, para que fosses o chefe sobre o meu povo, sobre Israel.

9 And I have been with you wherever you went, cutting off before you all those who were against you; and I will make your name great, like the name of the greatest ones of the earth.
9 E fui contigo, por onde quer que foste, e destruí teus inimigos diante de ti, e fiz para ti um grande nome, como o nome dos grandes que há na terra.

10 And I will make a resting-place for my people Israel, planting them there, so that they may be living in the place which is theirs, and never again be moved; and never again will they be troubled by evil men as they were at the first,
10 E preparei lugar para o meu povo, para Israel, e o plantarei, para que habite no seu lugar e não mais seja movido, e nunca mais os filhos da perversidade o aflijam como dantes,

11 From the time when I put judges over my people Israel; and I will give you peace from all who are against you. And the Lord says to you that he will make you the head of a line of kings.
11 desde o dia em que mandei que houvesse juízes sobre o meu povo Israel. A ti, porém, te dei descanso de todos os teus inimigos; também o SENHOR te faz saber que o SENHOR te fará casa.

12 And when the time comes for you to go to rest with your fathers, I will put in your place your seed after you, the offspring of your body, and I will make his kingdom strong.
12 Quando teus dias forem completos, e vieres a dormir com teus pais, então, farei levantar depois de ti a tua semente, que procederá de ti, e estabelecerei o seu reino.

13 He will be the builder of a house for my name, and I will make the seat of his authority certain for ever.
13 Este edificará uma casa ao meu nome, e confirmarei o trono do seu reino para sempre.

14 I will be to him a father and he will be to me a son: if he does wrong, I will give him punishment with the rod of men and with the blows of the children of men;
14 Eu lhe serei por pai, e ele me será por filho; e, se vier a transgredir, castigá-lo-ei com vara de homens e com açoites de filhos de homens.

15 But my mercy will not be taken away from him, as I took it from him who was before you.
15 Mas a minha benignidade se não apartará dele, como a tirei de Saul, a quem tirei de diante de ti.

16 And your family and your kingdom will keep their place before me for ever: the seat of your authority will never be overturned.
16 Porém a tua casa e o teu reino serão firmados para sempre diante de ti; teu trono será firme para sempre.

17 So Nathan gave David an account of all these words and this vision.
17 Conforme todas estas palavras e conforme toda esta visão, assim falou Natã a Davi.

18 Then David the king went in and took his seat before the Lord, and said, Who am I, O Lord God, and what is my family, that you have been my guide till now?
18 Então, entrou o rei Davi, e ficou perante o SENHOR, e disse: Quem sou eu, Senhor JEOVÁ, e qual é a minha casa, que me trouxeste até aqui?

19 And this was only a small thing to you, O Lord God; but your words have even been about the far-off future of your servant’s family, O Lord God!
19 E ainda foi isso pouco aos teus olhos, Senhor JEOVÁ, senão que também falaste da casa de teu servo para tempos distantes; é isso o costume dos homens, ó Senhor JEOVÁ?

20 What more may David say to you? for you have knowledge of your servant, O Lord God.
20 E que mais te falará ainda Davi? Pois tu conheces bem a teu servo, ó Senhor JEOVÁ.

21 Because of your word and from your heart, you have done all this great work, and let your servant see it.
21 Por causa da tua palavra e segundo o teu coração, fizeste toda esta grandeza, fazendo-a saber a teu servo.

22 Truly you are great, O Lord God: there is no one like you and no other God but you, as is clear from everything which has come to our ears.
22 Portanto, grandioso és, ó Senhor JEOVÁ, porque não há semelhante a ti, e não há outro Deus, senão tu só, segundo tudo o que temos ouvido com os nossos ouvidos.

23 And what other nation in the earth, like your people Israel, did a god go out to take for himself, to be his people, and to make a name for himself, and to do great and strange things for them, driving out a nation and its gods from before his people?
23 E quem há como o teu povo, como Israel, gente única na terra, a quem Deus foi resgatar para seu povo? E a fazer-se um nome e a fazer-vos estas grandes e terríveis coisas, para a tua terra, diante do teu povo, que tu resgataste do Egito, desterrando as nações e a seus deuses?

24 But you took and made strong for yourself your people Israel, to be your people for ever; and you, Lord, became their God.
24 E confirmaste a teu povo Israel por teu povo para sempre e tu, SENHOR, te fizeste o seu Deus.

25 And now, O Lord God, may the word which you have said about your servant and about his family, be made certain for ever, and may you do as you have said!
25 Agora, pois, ó Senhor JEOVÁ, esta palavra que falaste acerca de teu servo e acerca da sua casa, confirma-a para sempre e faze como tens falado.

26 And let your name be made great for ever, and let men say, The Lord of armies is God over Israel: and let the family of David your servant be made strong before you!
26 E engrandeça-se o teu nome para sempre, para que se diga: O SENHOR dos Exércitos é Deus sobre Israel; e a casa de teu servo será confirmada diante de ti.

27 For you, O Lord of armies, the God of Israel, have clearly said to your servant, I will make you the head of a family of kings: and so it has come into your servant’s heart to make this prayer to you.
27 Pois tu, SENHOR dos Exércitos, Deus de Israel, revelaste aos ouvidos de teu servo, dizendo: Edificar-te-ei casa. Portanto, o teu servo achou no seu coração o fazer-te esta oração.

28 And now, O Lord God, you are God and your words are true and you have said you will give your servant this good thing;
28 Agora, pois, Senhor JEOVÁ, tu és o mesmo Deus, e as tuas palavras são verdade, e tens falado a teu servo este bem.

29 So may it be your pleasure to give your blessing to the family of your servant, so that it may go on for ever before you: (for you, O Lord God, have said it,) and may your blessing be on your servant’s family line for ever!
29 Sê, pois, agora servido de abençoar a casa de teu servo, para permanecer para sempre diante de ti, pois tu, ó Senhor JEOVÁ, o disseste; e com a tua bênção será sempre bendita a casa de teu servo.

2 Samuel 8

1 And it came about after this that David made an attack on the Philistines and overcame them; and David took the authority of the mother-town from the hands of the Philistines.
1 E sucedeu, depois disso, que Davi feriu os filisteus e os sujeitou; e Davi tomou a Metegue-Amá das mãos dos filisteus.

2 And he overcame the Moabites, and he had them measured with a line when they were stretched out on the earth; marking out two lines for death and one full line for life. So the Moabites became servants to David and gave him offerings.
2 Também feriu os moabitas, e os mediu com cordel, fazendo-os deitar por terra, e os mediu com dois cordéis para os matar, e com um cordel inteiro para os deixar em vida; ficaram, assim, os moabitas por servos de Davi, trazendo presentes.

3 And David overcame Hadadezer, the son of Rehob, king of Zobah, when he went to make his power seen by the River.
3 Feriu também Davi a Hadadezer, filho de Reobe, rei de Zobá, indo ele a virar a sua mão para o rio Eufrates.

4 And David took from him one thousand, seven hundred horsemen and twenty thousand footmen: and David had the leg-muscles of the horses cut, only keeping enough of them for a hundred war-carriages.
4 E tomou-lhe Davi mil e seiscentos cavaleiros e vinte mil homens de pé; e Davi jarretou todos os cavalos dos carros e reservou deles cem carros.

5 And when the Aramaeans of Damascus came to the help of Hadadezer, king of Zobah, David put to the sword twenty-two thousand of the Aramaeans.
5 E vieram os siros de Damasco a socorrer a Hadadezer, rei de Zobá; porém Davi feriu dos siros vinte e dois mil homens.

6 And David put armed forces in Aram of Damascus: and the Aramaeans became servants to David and gave him offerings. And the Lord made David overcome wherever he went.
6 E Davi pôs guarnições na Síria de Damasco, e os siros ficaram por servos de Davi, trazendo presentes; e o SENHOR guardou a Davi por onde quer que ia.

7 And David took their gold body-covers from the servants of Hadadezer and took them to Jerusalem.
7 E Davi tomou os escudos de ouro que havia com os servos de Hadadezer e os trouxe a Jerusalém.

8 And from Tebah and Berothai, towns of Hadadezer, King David took a great store of brass.
8 Tomou mais o rei Davi uma quantidade mui grande de bronze de Betá e de Berotai, cidades de Hadadezer.

9 And when Tou, king of Hamath, had news that David had overcome all the army of Hadadezer,
9 Ouvindo, então, Toí, rei de Hamate, que Davi ferira a todo o exército de Hadadezer,

10 He sent his son Hadoram to David, with words of peace and blessing, because he had overcome Hadadezer in the fight, for Hadadezer had wars with Tou; and Hadoram took with him vessels of silver and gold and brass:
10 mandou Toí seu filho Jorão ao rei Davi, para lhe perguntar como estava e para lhe dar os parabéns por haver pelejado contra Hadadezer e por o haver ferido (porque Hadadezer de contínuo fazia guerra a Toí); e na sua mão trazia vasos de prata, e vasos de ouro, e vasos de bronze,

11 These King David made holy to the Lord, together with the silver and gold which he had taken from the nations he had overcome—
11 os quais também o rei Davi consagrou ao SENHOR, juntamente com a prata e ouro que já havia consagrado de todas as nações que sujeitara:

12 The nations of Edom and Moab, and the children of Ammon and the Philistines and the Amalekites and the goods he had taken from Hadadezer, the son of Rehob, king of Zobah.
12 da Síria, e de Moabe, e dos filhos de Amom, e dos filisteus, e de Amaleque, e dos despojos de Hadadezer, filho de Reobe, rei de Zobá.

13 And David got great honour for himself, when he came back, by the destruction of Edom in the valley of Salt, to the number of eighteen thousand men.
13 Também Davi ganhou nome, voltando ele de ferir os siros no vale do Sal, a saber, a dezoito mil.

14 And he put armed forces in Edom; all through Edom he had armed forces stationed, and all the Edomites became servants to David. And the Lord made David overcome wherever he went.
14 E pôs guarnições em Edom, em todo o Edom pôs guarnições, e todos os edomitas ficaram por servos de Davi; e o SENHOR ajudava a Davi por onde quer que ia.

15 And David was king over all Israel, judging and giving right decisions for all his people.
15 Reinou, pois, Davi sobre todo o Israel; e Davi julgava e fazia justiça a todo o seu povo.

16 And Joab, the son of Zeruiah, was chief of the army; and Jehoshaphat, the son of Ahilud, was keeper of the records;
16 E Joabe, filho de Zeruia, era sobre o exército; e Josafá, filho de Ailude, era cronista.

17 And Zadok and Abiathar, the son of Ahimelech, the son of Ahitub, were priests; and Seraiah was the scribe;
17 E Zadoque, filho de Aitube, e Aimeleque, filho de Abiatar, eram sacerdotes, e Seraías, escrivão.

18 And Benaiah, the son of Jehoiada, was over the Cherethites and the Pelethites; and David’s sons were priests.
18 Também Benaia filho de Joiada, estava com os quereteus e peleteus; porém os filhos de Davi eram príncipes.

2 Samuel 9

1 And David said, Is there still anyone of Saul’s family living, so that I may be a friend to him, because of Jonathan?
1 E disse Davi: Há ainda alguém que ficasse da casa de Saul, para que lhe faça bem por amor de Jônatas?

2 Now there was of Saul’s people a servant named Ziba, and they sent him to David; and the king said to him, Are you Ziba? And he said, I am.
2 E havia um servo na casa de Saul cujo nome era Ziba; e o chamaram que viesse a Davi, e disse-lhe o rei: És tu Ziba? E ele disse: Servo teu.

3 And the king said, Is there anyone of Saul’s family still living, to whom I may be a friend in God’s name? And Ziba said, There is a son of Jonathan, whose feet are damaged.
3 E disse o rei: Não há ainda algum da casa de Saul para que use com ele de beneficência de Deus? Então, disse Ziba ao rei: Ainda há um filho de Jônatas, aleijado de ambos os pés.

4 And the king said to him, Where is he? And Ziba said to the king, He is in the house of Machir, the son of Ammiel, in Lo-debar.
4 E disse-lhe o rei: Onde está? E disse Ziba ao rei: Eis que está em casa de Maquir, filho de Amiel, em Lo-Debar.

5 Then King David sent, and had him taken from Lo-debar, from the house of Machir, the son of Ammiel.
5 Então, mandou o rei Davi e o tomou da casa de Maquir, filho de Amiel, de Lo-Debar.

6 And Mephibosheth, the son of Jonathan, came to David, and falling down on his face, gave him honour. And David said, Mephibosheth. And answering he said, Your servant is here.
6 E, vindo Mefibosete, filho de Jônatas, filho de Saul, a Davi, se prostrou com o rosto por terra e se inclinou; e disse Davi: Mefibosete! E ele disse: Eis aqui teu servo.

7 And David said to him, Have no fear: for truly I will be good to you, because of your father Jonathan, and I will give back to you all the land which was Saul’s; and you will have a place at my table at all times.
7 E disse-lhe Davi: Não temas, porque decerto usarei contigo de beneficência por amor de Jônatas, teu pai, e te restituirei todas as terras de Saul, teu pai, e tu de contínuo comerás pão à minha mesa.

8 And he went down on his face before the king, and said, What is your servant, for you to take note of a dead dog such as I am?
8 Então, se inclinou e disse: Quem é teu servo, para tu teres olhado para um cão morto tal como eu?

9 Then the king sent for Ziba, Saul’s servant, and said to him, All the property of Saul and of his family I have given to your master’s son.
9 Então, chamou Davi a Ziba, moço de Saul, e disse-lhe: Tudo o que pertencia a Saul e de toda a sua casa tenho dado ao filho de teu senhor.

10 And you and your sons and your servants are to take care of the land for him, and get in the fruit of it, so that your master’s son may have food: but Mephibosheth, your master’s son, will have a place at my table at all times. Now Ziba had fifteen sons and twenty servants.
10 Trabalhar-lhe-ás, pois, a terra, tu, e teus filhos, e teus servos, e recolherás os frutos, para que o filho de teu senhor tenha pão que coma; e Mefibosete, filho de teu senhor, de contínuo comerá pão à minha mesa. E tinha Ziba quinze filhos e vinte servos.

11 Then Ziba said to the king, Every order which you have given to your servant will be done. As for Mephibosheth, he had a place at David’s table, like one of the king’s sons.
11 E disse Ziba ao rei: Conforme tudo quanto meu senhor, o rei, manda a seu servo, assim fará teu servo; porém Mefibosete comerá à minha mesa como um dos filhos do rei.

12 And Mephibosheth had a young son named Mica. And all the people living in the house of Ziba were servants to Mephibosheth.
12 E tinha Mefibosete um filho pequeno, cujo nome era Mica; e todos quantos moravam em casa de Ziba eram servos de Mefibosete.

13 So Mephibosheth went on living in Jerusalem; for he took all his meals at the king’s table; and he had not the use of his feet.
13 Morava, pois, Mefibosete em Jerusalém, porquanto de contínuo comia à mesa do rei; e era coxo de ambos os pés.

2 Samuel 10

1 Now after this, death came to the king of the children of Ammon, and Hanun, his son, became king in his place.
1 E aconteceu, depois disso, que morreu o rei dos filhos de Amom, e seu filho Hanum reinou em seu lugar.

2 And David said, I will be a friend to Hanun, the son of Nahash, as his father was a friend to me. So David sent his servants, to give him words of comfort on account of his father. And David’s servants came into the land of the children of Ammon.
2 Então, disse Davi: Usarei de beneficência com Hanum, filho de Naás, como seu pai usou de beneficência comigo. E enviou Davi a consolá-lo, pelo ministério de seus servos, acerca de seu pai; e vieram os servos de Davi à terra dos filhos de Amom.

3 But the chiefs of the children of Ammon said to Hanun their lord, Does it seem to you that David is honouring your father by sending comforters to you? has he not sent his servants to go through the town and make secret observation of it, and overcome it?
3 Então, disseram os príncipes dos filhos de Amom a seu senhor, Hanum: Porventura, honra Davi a teu pai aos teus olhos, porque te enviou consoladores? Porventura, não te enviou Davi os seus servos para reconhecerem esta cidade, e para espiá-la, e para transtorná-la?

4 So Hanun took David’s servants, and after cutting off half the hair on their chins, and cutting off the skirts of their robes up to the middle, he sent them away.
4 Então, tomou Hanum os servos de Davi, e lhes rapou metade da barba, e lhes cortou metade das vestes, até às nádegas, e os despediu.

5 When David had news of it, he sent men out with the purpose of meeting them on their way, for the men were greatly shamed: and the king said, Go to Jericho till your hair is long again, and then come back.
5 O que fazendo saber a Davi, este enviou a encontrá-los, porque estavam estes homens sobremaneira envergonhados; e disse o rei: Deixai-vos estar em Jericó, até que vos torne a crescer a barba; e então vinde.

6 And when the children of Ammon saw that they had made themselves hated by David, they sent to the Aramaeans of Beth-rehob and Zobah, and got for payment twenty thousand footmen, and they got from the king of Maacah a thousand men, and from Tob twelve thousand.
6 Vendo, pois, os filhos de Amom que se tinham feito abomináveis para Davi, enviaram os filhos de Amom e alugaram dos siros de Bete-Reobe e dos siros de Zobá vinte mil homens de pé, e do rei de Maaca, mil homens, e dos homens de Tobe, doze mil homens.

7 And hearing of this, David sent Joab and all the army and the best fighting-men.
7 O que ouvindo Davi, enviou contra eles a Joabe com todo o exército dos valentes.

8 And the children of Ammon came out and put their forces in position at the way into the town: and the Aramaeans of Zobah and of Rehob, with the men of Tob and Maacah, were by themselves in the field.
8 E saíram os filhos de Amom e ordenaram a batalha à entrada da porta, mas os siros de Zobá e Reobe e os homens de Tobe e Maaca estavam à parte no campo.

9 Now when Joab saw that their forces were in position against him in front and at his back, he took the best of the men of Israel and put them in line against the Aramaeans;
9 Vendo, pois, Joabe que estava preparada contra ele a frente da batalha, por diante e por detrás, escolheu dentre todos os escolhidos de Israel e formou-os em linha contra os siros.

10 And the rest of the people he put in position against the children of Ammon, with Abishai, his brother, at their head.
10 E o resto do povo entregou na mão de Abisai, seu irmão, o qual o formou em linha contra os filhos de Amom.

11 And he said, If the Aramaeans are stronger and get the better of me, then you are to come to my help; but if the children of Ammon get the better of you, I will come to your help.
11 E disse: Se os siros forem mais fortes do que eu, tu me virás em socorro; e, se os filhos de Amom forem mais fortes que tu, irei a socorrer-te.

12 Take heart, and let us be strong for our people and for the towns of our God, and may the Lord do what seems good to him.
12 Esforça-te, pois, e esforcemo-nos pelo nosso povo e pelas cidades de nosso Deus; e faça o SENHOR, então, o que bem parecer aos seus olhos.

13 Then Joab and the people with him went forward to the fight against the Aramaeans, and they went in flight before him.
13 Então, se achegou Joabe e o povo que estava com ele à peleja contra os siros; e estes fugiram de diante dele.

14 And when the children of Ammon saw the flight of the Aramaeans, they themselves went in flight from Abishai, and came into the town. So Joab went back from fighting the children of Ammon and came to Jerusalem.
14 E, vendo os filhos de Amom que os siros fugiam, também eles fugiram de diante de Abisai e entraram na cidade; e voltou Joabe dos filhos de Amom e veio para Jerusalém.

15 And when the Aramaeans saw that Israel had overcome them, they got themselves together.
15 Vendo, pois, os siros que tinham sido feridos diante de Israel, tornaram a refazer-se.

16 And Hadadezer sent for the Aramaeans who were on the other side of the River: and they came to Helam, with Shobach, the captain of Hadadezer’s army, at their head.
16 E enviou Hadadezer e fez sair os siros que estavam da outra banda do rio, e vieram a Helã; e Sobaque, chefe do exército de Hadadezer, marchava diante deles.

17 And word of this was given to David: and he got all Israel together and went over Jordan and came to Helam. And the Aramaeans put their forces in position against David, and made an attack on him.
17 Do que informado Davi, ajuntou a todo o Israel, e passou o Jordão, e veio a Helã; e os siros se puseram em ordem contra Davi e pelejaram contra ele.

18 And the Aramaeans went in flight before Israel; and David put to the sword the men of seven hundred Aramaean war-carriages and forty thousand footmen, and Shobach, the captain of the army, was wounded, and came to his death there.
18 Porém os siros fugiram de diante de Israel, e Davi feriu dentre os siros aos homens de setecentos carros e quarenta mil homens de cavalo; também ao mesmo Sobaque, general do exército, feriu, e morreu ali.

19 And when all the kings who were servants of Hadadezer saw that they were overcome by Israel, they made peace with Israel and became their servants. So the Aramaeans, in fear, gave no more help to the children of Ammon.
19 Vendo, pois, todos os reis, servos de Hadadezer, que haviam ficado mal diante de Israel, fizeram paz com Israel e o serviram; e temeram os siros de socorrer mais aos filhos de Amom.

2 Samuel 11

1 Now in the spring, at the time when kings go out to war, David sent Joab and his servants and all Israel with him; and they made waste the land of the children of Ammon, and took up their position before Rabbah, shutting it in. But David was still at Jerusalem.
1 E aconteceu que, tendo decorrido um ano, no tempo em que os reis saem para a guerra, enviou Davi a Joabe, e a seus servos com ele, e a todo o Israel, para que destruíssem os filhos de Amom e cercassem Rabá; porém Davi ficou em Jerusalém.

2 Now one evening, David got up from his bed, and while he was walking on the roof of the king’s house, he saw from there a woman bathing; and the woman was very beautiful.
2 E aconteceu, à hora da tarde, que Davi se levantou do seu leito, e andava passeando no terraço da casa real, e viu do terraço a uma mulher que se estava lavando; e era esta mulher mui formosa à vista.

3 And David sent to get knowledge who the woman was. And one said, Is this not Bath-sheba, the daughter of Eliam and wife of Uriah the Hittite?
3 E enviou Davi e perguntou por aquela mulher; e disseram: Porventura, não é esta Bate-Seba, filha de Eliã e mulher de Urias, o heteu?

4 And David sent and took her; and she came to him, and he took her to his bed: (for she had been made clean;) then she went back to her house.
4 Então, enviou Davi mensageiros e a mandou trazer; e, entrando ela a ele, se deitou com ela (e já ela se tinha purificado da sua imundície); então, voltou ela para sua casa.

5 And the woman became with child; and she sent word to David that she was with child.
5 E a mulher concebeu, e enviou, e fê-lo saber a Davi, e disse: Pejada estou.

6 And David sent to Joab saying, Send Uriah the Hittite to me. And Joab sent Uriah to David.
6 Então, enviou Davi a Joabe, dizendo: Envia-me Urias, o heteu. E Joabe enviou Urias a Davi.

7 And when Uriah came to him, David put questions to him about how Joab and the people were, and how the war was going.
7 Vindo, pois, Urias a ele, perguntou Davi como ficava Joabe, e como ficava o povo, e como ia a guerra.

8 And David said to Uriah, Go down to your house and let your feet be washed. And Uriah went away from the king’s house, and an offering from the king was sent after him.
8 Depois, disse Davi a Urias: Desce à tua casa e lava os teus pés. E, saindo Urias da casa real, logo saiu atrás dele iguaria do rei.

9 But Uriah took his rest at the door of the king’s house, with all the servants of his lord, and did not go down to his house.
9 Porém Urias se deitou à porta da casa real, com todos os servos do seu senhor, e não desceu à sua casa.

10 And when word was given to David that Uriah had not gone down to his house, David said to Uriah, Have you not come from a journey? why did you not go down to your house?
10 E o fizeram saber a Davi, dizendo: Urias não desceu à sua casa. Então, disse Davi a Urias: Não vens tu de uma jornada? Por que não desceste à tua casa?

11 And Uriah said to David, Israel and Judah with the ark are living in tents, and my lord Joab and the other servants of my lord are sleeping in the open field; and am I to go to my house and take food and drink, and go to bed with my wife? By the living Lord, and by the life of your soul, I will not do such a thing.
11 E disse Urias a Davi: A arca, e Israel, e Judá ficam em tendas; e Joabe, meu senhor, e os servos de meu senhor estão acampados no campo; e hei de eu entrar na minha casa, para comer e beber e para me deitar com minha mulher? Pela tua vida e pela vida da tua alma, não farei tal coisa.

12 And David said to Uriah, Be here today, and after that I will let you go. So Uriah was in Jerusalem that day and the day after.
12 Então, disse Davi a Urias: Fica cá ainda hoje, e amanhã te despedirei. Urias, pois, ficou em Jerusalém aquele dia e o seguinte.

13 And when David sent for him, he took meat and drink with him, and David made him the worse for drink: and when evening came, he went to rest on his bed with the servants of his lord, but he did not go down to his house.
13 E Davi o convidou, e comeu e bebeu diante dele, e o embebedou; e, à tarde, saiu a deitar-se na sua cama, como os servos de seu senhor; porém não desceu à sua casa.

14 Now in the morning, David gave Uriah a letter to take to Joab.
14 E sucedeu que, pela manhã, Davi escreveu uma carta a Joabe e mandou-lha por mão de Urias.

15 And in the letter he said, Take care to put Uriah in the very front of the line, where the fighting is most violent, and go back from him, so that he may be overcome and put to death.
15 Escreveu na carta, dizendo: Ponde Urias na frente da maior força da peleja; e retirai-vos de detrás dele, para que seja ferido e morra.

16 So while Joab was watching the town, he put Uriah in the place where it was clear to him the best fighters were.
16 Aconteceu, pois, que, tendo Joabe observado bem a cidade, pôs a Urias no lugar onde sabia que havia homens valentes.

17 And the men of the town went out and had a fight with Joab: and a number of David’s men came to their death in the fight, and with them Uriah the Hittite.
17 E, saindo os homens da cidade e pelejando com Joabe, caíram alguns do povo, dos servos de Davi; e morreu também Urias, o heteu.

18 Then Joab sent David news of everything which had taken place in the war:
18 Então, enviou Joabe e fez saber a Davi todo o sucesso daquela peleja.

19 And he gave orders to the man who took the news, saying, After you have given the king all the news about the war,
19 E deu ordem ao mensageiro, dizendo: Acabando tu de contar ao rei todo o sucesso desta peleja,

20 If the king is angry and says, Why did you go so near the town for the fight? was it not certain that their archers would be on the wall?
20 e, sucedendo que o rei se encolerize e te diga: Por que vos chegastes tão perto da cidade a pelejar? Não sabíeis vós que haviam de atirar do muro?

21 Who put Abimelech, the son of Jerubbaal, to death? did not a woman send a great stone down on him from the wall, putting him to death at Thebez? why did you go so near the wall? Then say to him, Your servant Uriah the Hittite is among the dead.
21 Quem feriu a Abimeleque, filho de Jerubesete? Não lançou uma mulher sobre ele, do muro, um pedaço de uma mó corredora, de que morreu em Tebes? Por que vos chegastes ao muro? Então, dirás: Também morreu teu servo Urias, o heteu.

22 So the man went, and came to David, and gave him all the news which Joab had sent him to give; then David was angry with Joab and said, Why did you go so near the town for the fight? was it not certain that their archers would be on the wall? who put Abimelech, the son of Jerubbaal, to death? did not a woman send a great stone down on him from the wall, putting him to death at Thebez? why did you go so near the wall?
22 E foi o mensageiro, e entrou, e fez saber a Davi tudo para que Joabe o enviara.

23 And the man said to David, Truly the men got the better of us, and came out against us into the open country, but we sent them back to the very doors of the town.
23 E disse o mensageiro a Davi: Na verdade, que mais poderosos foram aqueles homens do que nós e saíram a nós ao campo; porém nós fomos contra eles, até à entrada da porta.

24 And the archers sent their arrows at your servants from the wall, and some of the king’s servants are dead, and among them is your servant Uriah the Hittite.
24 Então, os flecheiros atiraram contra os teus servos desde o alto do muro, e morreram alguns dos servos do rei; e também morreu o teu servo Urias, o heteu.

25 Then David said to the man, Go and say to Joab, Do not let this be a grief to you; for one man may come to his death by the sword like another: put up an even stronger fight against the town, and take it: and do you put heart into him.
25 E disse Davi ao mensageiro: Assim dirás a Joabe: Não te pareça isso mal aos teus olhos; pois a espada tanto consome este como aquele; esforça a tua peleja contra a cidade e a derrota; esforça-o tu assim.

26 And when the wife of Uriah had news that her husband was dead, she gave herself up to weeping for him.
26 Ouvindo, pois, a mulher de Urias que Urias, seu marido, era morto, lamentou a seu senhor.

27 And when the days of weeping were past, David sent for her, and took her into his house, and she became his wife and gave him a son. But the Lord was not pleased with the thing David had done.
27 E, passado o luto, enviou Davi e a recolheu em sua casa; e lhe foi por mulher e ela lhe deu um filho. Porém essa coisa que Davi fez pareceu mal aos olhos do SENHOR.

2 Samuel 12

1 And the Lord sent Nathan to David. And Nathan came to him and said, There were two men in the same town: one a man of great wealth, and the other a poor man.
1 E o SENHOR enviou Natã a Davi; e, entrando ele a Davi, disse-lhe: Havia numa cidade dois homens, um rico e outro pobre.

2 The man of wealth had great numbers of flocks and herds;
2 O rico tinha muitíssimas ovelhas e vacas;

3 But the poor man had only one little she-lamb, which he had got and taken care of: from its birth it had been with him like one of his children; his meat was its food, and from his cup it took its drink, resting in his arms, and it was like a daughter to him.
3 mas o pobre não tinha coisa nenhuma, senão uma pequena cordeira que comprara e criara; e ela havia crescido com ele e com seus filhos igualmente; do seu bocado comia, e do seu copo bebia, e dormia em seu regaço, e a tinha como filha.

4 Now a traveller came to the house of the man of wealth, but he would not take anything from his flock or his herd to make a meal for the traveller who had come to him, but he took the poor man’s lamb and made it ready for the man who had come.
4 E, vindo um viajante ao homem rico, deixou este de tomar das suas ovelhas e das suas vacas para guisar para o viajante que viera a ele; e tomou a cordeira do homem pobre e a preparou para o homem que viera a ele.

5 And David was full of wrath against that man; and he said to Nathan, By the living Lord, death is the right punishment for the man who has done this:
5 Então, o furor de Davi se acendeu em grande maneira contra aquele homem, e disse a Natã: Vive o SENHOR, que digno de morte é o homem que fez isso.

6 And he will have to give back four times the value of the lamb, because he has done this and because he had no pity.
6 E pela cordeira tornará a dar o quadruplicado, porque fez tal coisa e porque não se compadeceu.

7 And Nathan said to David, You are that man. The Lord God of Israel says, I made you king over Israel, putting holy oil on you, and I kept you safe from the hands of Saul;
7 Então, disse Natã a Davi: Tu és este homem. Assim diz o SENHOR, Deus de Israel: Eu te ungi rei sobre Israel e eu te livrei das mãos de Saul;

8 I gave you your master’s daughter and your master’s wives for yourself, and I gave you the daughters of Israel and Judah; and if that had not been enough, I would have given you such and such things.
8 e te dei a casa de teu senhor e as mulheres de teu senhor em teu seio e também te dei a casa de Israel e de Judá; e, se isto é pouco, mais te acrescentaria tais e tais coisas.

9 Why then have you had no respect for the word of the Lord, doing what is evil in his eyes? You have put Uriah the Hittite to death with the sword, and have taken his wife to be your wife; you have put him to death with the sword of the children of Ammon.
9 Por que, pois, desprezaste a palavra do SENHOR, fazendo o mal diante de seus olhos? A Urias, o heteu, feriste à espada, e a sua mulher tomaste por tua mulher; e a ele mataste com a espada dos filhos de Amom.

10 So now the sword will never be turned away from your family; because you have had no respect for me, and have taken the wife of Uriah the Hittite to be your wife.
10 Agora, pois, não se apartará a espada jamais da tua casa, porquanto me desprezaste e tomaste a mulher de Urias, o heteu, para que te seja por mulher.

11 The Lord says, From those of your family I will send evil against you, and before your very eyes I will take your wives and give them to your neighbour, and he will take your wives to his bed by the light of this sun.
11 Assim diz o SENHOR: Eis que suscitarei da tua mesma casa o mal sobre ti, e tomarei tuas mulheres perante os teus olhos, e as darei a teu próximo, o qual se deitará com tuas mulheres perante este sol.

12 You did it secretly; but I will do this thing before all Israel and in the light of the sun.
12 Porque tu o fizeste em oculto, mas eu farei este negócio perante todo o Israel e perante o sol.

13 And David said to Nathan, Great is my sin against the Lord. And Nathan said to David, The Lord has put away your sin; death will not come on you.
13 Então, disse Davi a Natã: Pequei contra o SENHOR. E disse Natã a Davi: Também o SENHOR traspassou o teu pecado; não morrerás.

14 But still, because you have had no respect for the Lord, death will certainly overtake the child who has newly come to birth.
14 Todavia, porquanto com este feito deste lugar sobremaneira a que os inimigos do SENHOR blasfemem, também o filho que te nasceu certamente morrerá.

15 Then Nathan went back to his house. And the hand of the Lord was on David’s son, the child of Uriah’s wife, and it became very ill.
15 Então, Natã foi para sua casa. E o SENHOR feriu a criança que a mulher de Urias dera a Davi; e a criança adoeceu gravemente.

16 So David made prayer to God for the child; and he took no food day after day, and went in and, stretching himself out on the earth, was there all night.
16 E buscou Davi a Deus pela criança; e jejuou Davi, e entrou, e passou a noite prostrado sobre a terra.

17 And the chief men of his house got up and went to his side to make him get up from the earth, but he would not; and he would not take food with them.
17 Então os anciãos da sua casa se levantaram e foram a ele, para o levantar da terra; porém ele não quis, e não comeu pão com eles.

18 And then on the seventh day the child’s death took place. And David’s servants were in fear of giving him the news of the child’s death: for they said, Truly, while the child was still living he gave no attention when we said anything to him: what will he do to himself if we give him word that the child is dead?
18 E sucedeu que, ao sétimo dia, morreu a criança; e temiam os servos de Davi dizer-lhe que a criança era morta, porque diziam: Eis que, sendo a criança ainda viva, lhe falávamos, porém não dava ouvidos à nossa voz; como, pois, lhe diremos que a criança é morta? Porque mais mal lhe faria.

19 But when David saw that his servants were talking together quietly, he was certain that the child was dead: and he said to his servants, Is the child dead? and they said, He is.
19 Viu, porém, Davi que seus servos falavam baixo e entendeu Davi que a criança era morta, pelo que disse Davi a seus servos: É morta a criança? E eles disseram: É morta.

20 Then David got up from the earth, and after washing and rubbing himself with oil and changing his clothing, he went into the house of the Lord and gave worship: then he went back to his house, and at his order they put food before him and he had a meal.
20 Então, Davi se levantou da terra, e se lavou, e se ungiu, e mudou de vestes, e entrou na Casa do SENHOR, e adorou; então, veio a sua casa e pediu pão; e lhe puseram pão, e comeu.

21 Then his servants said to him, Why have you been acting in this way? you were weeping and going without food while the child was still living; but when the child was dead, you got up and had a meal.
21 E disseram-lhe seus servos: Que é isso que fizeste? Pela criança viva jejuaste e choraste; porém, depois que morreu a criança, te levantaste e comeste pão.

22 And he said, While the child was still living I went without food and gave myself up to weeping: for I said, Who is able to say that the Lord will not have mercy on me and give the child life?
22 E disse ele: Vivendo ainda a criança, jejuei e chorei, porque dizia: Quem sabe se o SENHOR se compadecerá de mim, e viva a criança?

23 But now that the child is dead there is no reason for me to go without food; am I able to make him come back to life? I will go to him, but he will never come back to me.
23 Porém, agora que é morta, por que jejuaria eu agora? Poderei eu fazê-la mais voltar? Eu irei a ela, porém ela não voltará para mim.

24 And David gave comfort to his wife Bath-sheba, and he went in to her and had connection with her: and she had a son to whom she gave the name Solomon. And he was dear to the Lord.
24 Então, consolou Davi a Bate-Seba, sua mulher, e entrou a ela, e se deitou com ela; e teve ela um filho, e chamou o seu nome Salomão; e o SENHOR o amou.

25 And he sent word by Nathan the prophet, who gave him the name Jedidiah, by the word of the Lord.
25 E o enviou pela mão do profeta Natã, e este chamou o seu nome Jedidias, por amor do SENHOR.

26 Now Joab was fighting against Rabbah, in the land of the children of Ammon, and he took the water-town.
26 Entretanto, pelejou Joabe contra Rabá, dos filhos de Amom, e tomou a cidade real.

27 And Joab sent men to David, saying, I have made war against Rabbah and have taken the water-town.
27 Então, mandou Joabe mensageiros a Davi e disse: Pelejei contra Rabá e também tomei a cidade das águas.

28 So now, get the rest of the people together, and put them in position against the town and take it, for if I take it, it will be named after my name.
28 Ajunta, pois, agora o resto do povo, e cerca a cidade, e toma-a, para que, tomando eu a cidade, não se aclame sobre ela o meu nome.

29 Then David got all the people together and went to Rabbah and made war on it and took it.
29 Então, ajuntou Davi a todo o povo, e marchou para Rabá, e pelejou contra ela, e a tomou.

30 And he took the crown of Milcom from his head; the weight of it was a talent of gold, and in it were stones of great price; and it was put on David’s head. And he took a great store of goods from the town.
30 E tirou a coroa da cabeça do seu rei, cujo peso era de um talento de ouro, e havia nela pedras preciosas, e foi posta sobre a cabeça de Davi; e da cidade levou mui grande despojo.

31 And he took the people out of the town and put them to work with wood-cutting instruments, and iron grain-crushers, and iron axes, and at brick-making: this he did to all the towns of the children of Ammon. Then David and all the people went back to Jerusalem.
31 E, trazendo o povo que havia nela, o pôs às serras, e às talhadeiras de ferro, e aos machados de ferro, e os fez passar por forno de tijolos; e assim fez a todas as cidades dos filhos de Amom. E voltou Davi e todo o povo para Jerusalém.

2 Samuel 13

1 Now after this, it came about that Absalom, David’s son, had a beautiful sister, whose name was Tamar; and David’s son Amnon was in love with her.
1 E aconteceu, depois disso, que, tendo Absalão, filho de Davi, uma irmã formosa, cujo nome era Tamar, Amnom, filho de Davi, amou-a.

2 And he was so deeply in love that he became ill because of his sister Tamar; for she was a virgin, and so it seemed hard to Amnon to do anything to her.
2 E angustiou-se Amnom, até adoecer, por Tamar, sua irmã, porque era virgem; e parecia, aos olhos de Amnom, dificultoso fazer-lhe coisa alguma.

3 But Amnon had a friend whose name was Jonadab, the son of Shimeah, David’s brother: and Jonadab was a very wise man.
3 Tinha, porém, Amnom um amigo, cujo nome era Jonadabe, filho de Siméia, irmão de Davi. E era Jonadabe homem mui sagaz.

4 And he said to him, O son of the king, why are you getting thinner day by day? will you not say what your trouble is? And Amnon said to him, I am in love with Tamar, my brother Absalom’s sister.
4 E ele lhe disse: Por que tu de manhã em manhã tanto emagreces, sendo filho do rei? Não mo farás saber a mim? Então, lhe disse Amnom: Amo a Tamar, irmã de Absalão, meu irmão.

5 Then Jonadab said to him, Go to your bed, and let it seem that you are ill: and when your father comes to see you, say to him, Let my sister Tamar come and give me bread, and get the food ready before my eyes, so that I may see it and take it from her hand.
5 E Jonadabe lhe disse: Deita-te na tua cama, e finge-te doente; e, quando teu pai te vier visitar, dize-lhe: Peço-te que minha irmã Tamar venha, e me dê de comer pão, e prepare a comida diante dos meus olhos, para que eu a veja e coma da sua mão.

6 So Amnon went to bed and made himself seem ill: and when the king came to see him, Amnon said to the king, Please let my sister Tamar come and make me one or two cakes before my eyes, so that I may take food from her hand.
6 Deitou-se, pois, Amnom e fingiu-se doente; e, vindo o rei visitá-lo, disse Amnom ao rei: Peço-te que minha irmã Tamar venha e prepare dois bolos diante dos meus olhos, para que eu coma de sua mão.

7 Then David sent to the house for Tamar and said, Go now to your brother Amnon’s house and get a meal for him.
7 Mandou, então, Davi a casa, a Tamar, dizendo: Vai a casa de Amnom, teu irmão, e faze-lhe alguma comida.

8 So Tamar went to her brother Amnon’s house; and he was in bed. And she took paste and made cakes before his eyes, cooking them over the fire.
8 E foi Tamar a casa de Amnom, seu irmão (ele, porém, estava deitado), e tomou massa, e a amassou, e fez bolos diante dos seus olhos, e cozeu os bolos.

9 And she took the cooking-pot, and put the cakes before him, but he would not take them. And Amnon said, Let everyone go away from me. So they all went out.
9 E tomou a assadeira e os tirou diante dele; porém ele recusou comer. E disse Amnom: Fazei retirar a todos da minha presença. E todos se retiraram dele.

10 Then Amnon said to Tamar, Take the food and come into my bedroom, so that I may take it from your hand. So Tamar took the cakes she had made and went with them into her brother Amnon’s bedroom.
10 Então, disse Amnom a Tamar: Traze a comida à câmara e comerei da tua mão. E tomou Tamar os bolos que fizera e os trouxe a Amnom, seu irmão, à câmara.

11 And when she took them to give them to him, he put his arms round her and said, Come to bed, my sister.
11 E, chegando-lhos, para que comesse, pegou dela e disse-lhe: Vem, deita-te comigo, irmã minha.

12 And answering him, she said, O my brother, do not put shame on me; it is not right for such a thing to be done in Israel: do not this evil thing.
12 Porém ela lhe disse: Não, irmão meu, não me forces, porque não se faz assim em Israel; não faças tal loucura.

13 What will become of me in my shame? and as for you, you will be looked down on with disgust by all Israel. Now then, go and make your request to the king, for he will not keep me from you.
13 Porque, aonde iria eu com a minha vergonha? E tu serias como um dos loucos de Israel. Agora, pois, peço-te que fales ao rei, porque não me negará a ti.

14 But he would not give attention to what she said: but being stronger than she, he took her by force, and had connection with her.
14 Porém ele não quis dar ouvidos à sua voz; antes, sendo mais forte do que ela, a forçou e se deitou com ela.

15 Then Amnon was full of hate for her, hating her with a hate greater than his earlier love for her. And he said to her, Get up and be gone.
15 Depois, Amnom a aborreceu com grandíssimo aborrecimento, porque maior era o aborrecimento com que a aborrecia do que o amor com que a amara. E disse-lhe Amnom: Levanta-te e vai-te.

16 And she said to him, Not so, my brother, for this great wrong in sending me away is worse than what you did to me before. But he gave no attention to her.
16 Então, ela lhe disse: Não há razão de me despedires assim; maior seria este mal do que o outro que já me tens feito. Porém não lhe quis dar ouvidos.

17 Then he gave a cry to the servant who was waiting on him and said, Put this woman out, and let the door be locked after her.
17 E chamou a seu moço que o servia e disse: Deita a esta fora e fecha a porta após ela.

18 Now she had on a long robe, such as in past times the king’s virgin daughters were dressed in. Then the servant put her out, locking the door after her.
18 E trazia ela uma roupa de muitas cores (porque assim se vestiam as filhas virgens dos reis, com capas), e seu criado a deitou fora e fechou a porta após ela.

19 And Tamar, in her grief, put dust on her head; and she put her hand on her head and went away crying loudly.
19 Então, Tamar tomou cinza sobre a sua cabeça, e a roupa de muitas cores que trazia rasgou, e pôs as mãos sobre a cabeça, e foi-se andando e clamando.

20 And her brother Absalom said to her, Has your brother Amnon been with you? but now, let there be an end to your crying, my sister: he is your brother, do not take this thing to heart. So Tamar went on living uncomforted in her brother’s house.
20 E Absalão, seu irmão, lhe disse: Esteve Amnom, teu irmão, contigo? Ora, pois, irmã minha, cala-te; é teu irmão. Não se angustie o teu coração por isso. Assim ficou Tamar e esteve solitária em casa de Absalão, seu irmão.

21 But when King David had news of all these things he was very angry; but he did not make trouble for Amnon his son, for he was dear to David, being his oldest son.
21 E, ouvindo o rei Davi todas essas coisas, muito se acendeu em ira.

22 But Absalom said nothing to his brother Amnon, good or bad: for he was full of hate for him, because he had taken his sister Tamar by force.
22 Porém Absalão não falou com Amnom, nem mal nem bem; porque Absalão aborrecia a Amnom, por ter forçado a Tamar, sua irmã.

23 Now after two full years, Absalom had men cutting the wool of his sheep in Baal-hazor, which is near Ephraim: and he sent for all the king’s sons to come to his feast.
23 E aconteceu que, passados dois anos inteiros, Absalão tinha tosquiadores em Baal-Hazor, que está junto a Efraim, e convidou Absalão a todos os filhos do rei.

24 And Absalom came to the king and said, See now, your servant is cutting the wool of his sheep; will the king and his servants be pleased to come?
24 E veio Absalão ao rei e disse: Eis que teu servo tem tosquiadores; peço que o rei e os seus servos venham com o teu servo.

25 And the king said to Absalom, No, my son, let us not all go, or the number will be over-great for you. And he made his request again, but he would not go, but he gave him his blessing.
25 O rei, porém, disse a Absalão: Não, filho meu, não vamos todos juntos, para não te sermos pesados. E instou com ele; porém ele não quis ir, mas o abençoou.

26 Then Absalom said, If you will not go, then let my brother Amnon go with us. And the king said to him, Is there any reason for him to go with you?
26 Então, disse Absalão: Quando não, deixa ir conosco Amnom, meu irmão. Porém o rei lhe disse: Para que iria contigo?

27 But Absalom went on requesting him till he let Amnon and all the king’s sons go with him. And Absalom made a great feast like a feast for a king.
27 E, instando Absalão com ele, deixou ir com ele a Amnom e a todos os filhos do rei.

28 Now Absalom had given orders to his servants, saying, Now take note when Amnon’s heart is glad with wine; and when I say to you, Make an attack on Amnon, then put him to death without fear: have I not given you orders? be strong and without fear.
28 E Absalão deu ordem aos seus moços, dizendo: Tomai sentido; quando o coração de Amnom estiver alegre do vinho, e eu vos disser: Feri a Amnom! Então, o matareis; não temais; porventura, não sou eu quem vo-lo ordenou? Esforçai-vos e sede valentes.

29 So Absalom’s servants did to Amnon as Absalom had given them orders. Then all the king’s sons got up, and every man got on his beast and went in flight.
29 E os moços de Absalão fizeram a Amnom como Absalão lho havia ordenado. Então, todos os filhos do rei se levantaram, e montaram cada um no seu mulo, e fugiram.

30 Now while they were on their way, news was given to David that Absalom had put to death all the sons of the king and that not one of them was still living.
30 E aconteceu que, estando eles ainda no caminho, veio a nova a Davi, de que se dizia: Absalão feriu todos os filhos do rei, e nenhum deles ficou.

31 Then the king got up in great grief, stretching himself out on the earth: and all his servants were by his side, with their clothing parted.
31 Então, o rei se levantou, e rasgou as suas vestes, e se lançou por terra; da mesma maneira todos os seus servos estavam com vestes rotas.

32 And Jonadab, the son of Shimeah, David’s brother, said, Let not my lord have the idea that all the sons of the king have been put to death; for only Amnon is dead: this has been purposed by Absalom from the day when he took his sister Tamar by force.
32 Mas Jonadabe, filho de Siméia, irmão de Davi, respondeu e disse: Não diga o meu senhor que mataram a todos os jovens filhos do rei, porque só morreu Amnom; porque assim o tinha resolvido fazer Absalão, desde o dia em que ele forçou a Tamar, sua irmã.

33 So now, let not my lord the king take this thing to heart, with the idea that all the king’s sons are dead: for only Amnon is dead.
33 Não se lhe meta, pois, agora no coração do rei, meu senhor, tal coisa, dizendo: Morreram todos os filhos do rei; porque só morreu Amnom.

34 But Absalom went in flight. And the young man who kept the watch, lifting up his eyes, saw that a great band of people was coming down the slope by the way of the Horons; and the watchman came and gave word to the king, saying, I saw men coming down by the way of the Horons, from the hillside.
34 E Absalão fugiu. E o jovem que estava de guarda levantou os seus olhos e olhou; e eis que muito povo vinha pelo caminho por detrás dele, pela banda do monte.

35 And Jonadab said to the king, See, the king’s sons are coming; as your servant said, so it is.
35 Então, disse Jonadabe ao rei: Eis aqui vêm os filhos do rei; conforme a palavra de teu servo, assim sucedeu.

36 And while he was talking, the king’s sons came, with weeping and loud cries: and the king and all his servants were weeping bitterly.
36 E aconteceu que, quando acabou de falar, os filhos do rei vieram, e levantaram a sua voz, e choraram; e também o rei e todos os seus servos choraram com mui grande choro.

37 So Absalom went in flight and came to Talmai, the son of Ammihud, the king of Geshur, where he was for three years.
37 Assim, Absalão fugiu e se foi a Talmai, filho de Amiúde, rei de Gesur. E Davi trouxe dó por seu filho todos aqueles dias.

38 And the king was sorrowing for his son all the time.
38 Assim, Absalão fugiu e foi para Gesur; esteve ali três anos.

39 And the heart of David was wasted with desire for Absalom: for he was comforted for the death of Amnon.
39 Então, tinha o rei Davi saudades de Absalão, porque já se tinha consolado acerca de Amnom, que era morto.

2 Samuel 14

1 Now it was clear to Joab, the son of Zeruiah, that the king’s heart was turning to Absalom.
1 Conhecendo, pois, Joabe, filho de Zeruia, que o coração do rei era inclinado para Absalão,

2 And Joab sent to Tekoa and got from there a wise woman, and said to her, Now make yourself seem like one given up to grief, and put on the clothing of sorrow, not using any sweet oil for your body, but looking like one who for a long time has been weeping for the dead:
2 enviou Joabe a Tecoa, e tomou de lá uma mulher sábia, e disse-lhe: Ora, finge que estás de luto; veste vestes de luto, e não te unjas com óleo, e sejas como uma mulher que há já muitos dias está de luto por algum morto.

3 And come to the king and say these words to him. So Joab gave her words to say.
3 E entra ao rei e fala-lhe conforme esta palavra. E Joabe lhe pôs as palavras na boca.

4 And the woman of Tekoa came to the king, and falling on her face, gave him honour and said, Give me help, O king.
4 E a mulher tecoíta falou ao rei, e, deitando-se com o rosto em terra, se prostrou, e disse: Salva-me, ó rei.

5 And the king said to her, What is your trouble? And her answer was, Truly I am a widow, and my husband is dead.
5 E disse-lhe o rei: Que tens? E disse ela: Na verdade que sou uma mulher viúva, e morreu meu marido.

6 And I had two sons, and the two of them had a fight in the field, and there was no one to come between them, and one with a blow put the other to death.
6 Tinha, pois, a tua serva dois filhos, e ambos estes brigaram no campo, e não houve quem os apartasse; assim, um feriu ao outro e o matou.

7 And now all the family is turned against me, your servant, saying, Give up him who was the cause of his brother’s death, so that we may put him to death in payment for the life of his brother, whose life he took; and we will put an end to the one who will get the heritage: so they will put out my last burning coal, and my husband will have no name or offspring on the face of the earth.
7 E eis que toda a linhagem se levantou contra a tua serva, e disseram: Dá-nos aquele que feriu a seu irmão para que o matemos, por causa da vida de seu irmão, a quem matou, e para que destruamos também ao herdeiro. Assim, apagarão a brasa que me ficou, de sorte que não deixam a meu marido nome, nem resto sobre a terra.

8 And the king said to the woman, Go to your house and I will give orders about this.
8 E disse o rei à mulher: Vai para tua casa, e eu mandarei ordem acerca de ti.

9 And the woman of Tekoa said to the king, My lord, O king, may the sin be on me and on my family, and may the king and the seat of his kingdom be clear of sin!
9 E disse a mulher tecoíta ao rei: A injustiça, ó rei, meu senhor, venha sobre mim e sobre a casa de meu pai; e o rei e o seu trono fiquem inculpáveis.

10 And the king said, If anyone says anything to you, make him come to me, and he will do you no more damage.
10 E disse o rei: Quem falar contra ti, traze-mo a mim; e nunca mais te tocará.

11 Then she said, Let the king keep in mind the Lord your God, so that he who gives punishment for blood may be kept back from further destruction and that no one may send death on my son. And he said, By the living Lord, not a hair of your son’s head will come to the earth.
11 E disse ela: Ora, lembre-se o rei do SENHOR, teu Deus, para que os vingadores do sangue se não multipliquem a deitar-nos a perder e não destruam meu filho. Então, disse ele: Vive o SENHOR, que não há de cair no chão nem um dos cabelos de teu filho.

12 Then the woman said, Will the king let his servant say one word more? And he said, Say on.
12 Então, disse a mulher: Peço-te que a tua serva fale uma palavra ao rei, meu senhor. E disse ele: Fala.

13 And the woman said, Why have you had such a thought about the people of God? (for in saying these very words the king has put himself in the wrong because he has not taken back the one whom he sent far away.)
13 E disse a mulher: Por que, pois, pensaste tu uma tal coisa contra o povo de Deus? Porque, falando o rei tal palavra, fica como culpado; visto que o rei não torna a trazer o seu desterrado.

14 For death comes to us all, and we are like water drained out on the earth, which it is not possible to take up again; and God will not take away the life of the man whose purpose is that he who has been sent away may not be completely cut off from him.
14 Porque certamente morreremos e seremos como águas derramadas na terra, que não se ajuntam mais. Deus, pois, lhe não tirará a vida, mas ideará pensamentos, para que se não desterre dele o seu desterrado.

15 And now it is my fear of the people which has made me come to say these words to my lord the king: and your servant said, I will put my cause before the king, and it may be that he will give effect to my request.
15 E, se eu agora vim falar esta palavra ao rei, meu senhor, é porque o povo me atemorizou; dizia, pois, a tua serva: Falarei, pois, ao rei; porventura, fará o rei segundo a palavra da sua serva.

16 For the king will give ear, and take his servant out of the power of the man whose purpose is the destruction of me and my son together from the heritage of God.
16 Porque o rei ouvirá, para livrar a sua serva da mão do homem que intenta destruir juntamente a mim e a meu filho da herança de Deus.

17 Then your servant said, May the word of my lord the king give me peace! for my lord the king is as the angel of God in his hearing of good and bad: and may the Lord your God be with you!
17 Dizia mais a tua serva: Seja agora a palavra do rei, meu senhor, para descanso; porque, como um anjo de Deus, assim é o rei, meu senhor, para ouvir o bem e o mal; e o SENHOR, teu Deus, será contigo.

18 Then the king said to the woman, Now give me an answer to the question I am going to put to you; keep nothing back. And the woman said, Let my lord the king say on.
18 Então, respondeu o rei e disse à mulher: Peço-te que não me encubras o que eu te perguntar. E disse a mulher: Ora, fale o rei, meu senhor.

19 And the king said, Is not the hand of Joab with you in all this? And the woman in answer said, By the life of your soul, my lord the king, it is not possible for anyone to go to the right hand or to the left from anything said by the king: your servant Joab gave me orders, and put all these words in my mouth:
19 E disse o rei: Não é verdade que a mão de Joabe anda contigo em tudo isso? E respondeu a mulher e disse: Vive a tua alma, ó rei, meu senhor, que ninguém se poderá desviar, nem para a direita nem para a esquerda, de tudo quanto o rei, meu senhor, tem dito; porque Joabe, teu servo, é quem me deu ordem e foi ele que pôs na boca da tua serva todas estas palavras.

20 This he did, hoping that the face of this business might be changed: and my lord is wise, with the wisdom of the angel of God, having knowledge of everything on earth.
20 Para que eu virasse a forma deste negócio, Joabe, teu servo, fez isso; porém sábio é meu senhor, conforme a sabedoria de um anjo de Deus, para entender tudo o que há na terra.

21 And the king said to Joab, See now, I will do this thing: go then and Come back with the young man Absalom.
21 Então, o rei disse a Joabe: Eis que fiz isto. Vai, pois, e torna a trazer o jovem Absalão.

22 Then Joab, falling down on his face on the earth, gave the king honour and blessing; and Joab said, Today it is clear to your servant that I have grace in your eyes, my lord king, because the king has given effect to the request of his servant.
22 Então, Joabe se prostrou sobre o seu rosto em terra, e se inclinou, e o agradeceu ao rei, e disse: Hoje, conheceu o teu servo que achei graça aos teus olhos, ó rei, meu senhor, porque o rei fez segundo a palavra do teu servo.

23 So Joab got up and went to Geshur and came back again to Jerusalem with Absalom.
23 Levantou-se, pois, Joabe, e foi a Gesur, e trouxe Absalão a Jerusalém.

24 And the king said, Let him go to his house, but let him not see my face. So Absalom went back to his house and did not see the face of the king.
24 E disse o rei: Torne para a sua casa e não veja a minha face. Tornou, pois, Absalão para a sua casa e não viu a face do rei.

25 Now in all Israel there was no one so greatly to be praised for his beautiful form as Absalom: from his feet to the crown of his head he was completely beautiful.
25 Não havia, porém, em todo o Israel homem tão belo e tão aprazível como Absalão; desde a planta do pé até à cabeça, não havia nele defeito algum.

26 And when he had his hair cut, (which he did at the end of every year, because of the weight of his hair;) the weight of the hair was two hundred shekels by the king’s weight.
26 E, quando tosquiava a sua cabeça (e sucedia que no fim de cada ano a tosquiava, porquanto muito lhe pesava, e por isso a tosquiava), pesava o cabelo da sua cabeça duzentos siclos, segundo o peso real.

27 And Absalom was the father of three sons and of one daughter named Tamar, who was very beautiful.
27 Também nasceram a Absalão três filhos e uma filha, cujo nome era Tamar; e esta era mulher formosa à vista.

28 For two full years Absalom was living in Jerusalem without ever seeing the face of the king.
28 Assim, ficou Absalão dois anos inteiros em Jerusalém e não viu a face do rei.

29 Then Absalom sent for Joab to send him to the king, but he would not come to him: and he sent again a second time, but he would not come.
29 Mandou, pois, Absalão chamar a Joabe, para o enviar ao rei; porém não quis vir a ele; e enviou ainda segunda vez, e, contudo, não quis vir.

30 So he said to his servants, See, Joab’s field is near mine, and he has barley in it; go and put it on fire. And Absalom’s servants put the field on fire.
30 Então, disse aos seus servos: Vedes ali o pedaço de campo de Joabe pegado ao meu, e tem cevada nele; ide e ponde-lhe fogo. E os servos de Absalão puseram fogo ao pedaço de campo.

31 Then Joab came to Absalom in his house and said to him, Why have your servants put my field on fire?
31 Então, Joabe se levantou, e veio a Absalão, em casa, e disse-lhe: Por que puseram os teus servos fogo ao pedaço de campo que é meu?

32 And Absalom’s answer was, See, I sent to you saying, Come here, so that I may send you to the king to say, Why have I come back from Geshur? it would be better for me to be there still: let me now see the king’s face, and if there is any sin in me, let him put me to death.
32 E disse Absalão a Joabe: Eis que enviei a ti, dizendo: Vem cá, para que te envie ao rei, a dizer-lhe: Para que vim de Gesur? Melhor me fora estar ainda lá. Agora, pois, veja eu a face do rei; e, se há ainda em mim alguma culpa, que me mate.

33 So Joab went to the king and said these words to him: and when the king had sent for him, Absalom came, and went down on his face on the earth before the king: and the king gave him a kiss.
33 Então, entrou Joabe ao rei e assim lho disse. Então, chamou a Absalão, e ele entrou ao rei e se inclinou sobre o seu rosto em terra diante do rei; e o rei beijou a Absalão.

2 Samuel 15

1 Now after this, Absalom got for himself a carriage and horses, and fifty runners to go before him.
1 E aconteceu, depois disso, que Absalão fez aparelhar carros, e cavalos, e cinqüenta homens que corressem adiante dele.

2 And Absalom got up early, morning after morning, and took his place at the side of the public meeting-place: and when any man had a cause which had to come to the king to be judged, then Absalom, crying out to him, said, What is your town? and he would say, Your servant is of one of the tribes of Israel.
2 Também Absalão se levantou pela manhã e parava a uma banda do caminho da porta. E sucedia que a todo o homem que tinha alguma demanda para vir ao rei a juízo, o chamava Absalão a si e lhe dizia: De que cidade és tu? E dizendo ele: De uma das tribos de Israel é teu servo;

3 And Absalom would say to him, See, your cause is true and right; but no man has been named by the king to give you a hearing.
3 então, Absalão lhe dizia: Olha, os teus negócios são bons e retos, porém não tens quem te ouça da parte do rei.

4 And more than this, Absalom said, If only I was made judge in the land, so that every man who has any cause or question might come to me, and I would give a right decision for him!
4 Dizia mais Absalão: Ah! Quem me dera ser juiz na terra, para que viesse a mim todo o homem que tivesse demanda ou questão, para que lhe fizesse justiça!

5 And if any man came near to give him honour, he took him by the hand and gave him a kiss.
5 Sucedia também que, quando alguém se chegava a ele para se inclinar diante dele, ele estendia a sua mão, e pegava dele, e o beijava.

6 And this Absalom did to everyone in Israel who came to the king to have his cause judged: so Absalom, like a thief, took away the hearts of the men of Israel.
6 E desta maneira fazia Absalão a todo o Israel que vinha ao rei para juízo; assim, furtava Absalão o coração dos homens de Israel.

7 Now at the end of four years, Absalom said to the king, Let me go to Hebron and give effect to the oath which I made to the Lord:
7 E aconteceu, pois, ao cabo de quarenta anos, que Absalão disse ao rei: Deixa-me ir pagar em Hebrom o meu voto que votei ao SENHOR.

8 For while I was living in Geshur in Aram, your servant made an oath, saying, If ever the Lord lets me come back to Jerusalem, I will give him worship in Hebron.
8 Porque morando eu em Gesur, na Síria, votou o teu servo um voto, dizendo: Se o SENHOR outra vez me fizer tornar a Jerusalém, servirei ao SENHOR.

9 And the king said to him, Go in peace. So he got up and went to Hebron.
9 Então, lhe disse o rei: Vai em paz. Levantou-se, pois, e foi para Hebrom.

10 But Absalom at the same time sent watchers through all the tribes of Israel to say, At the sound of the horn you are to say, Absalom is king in Hebron.
10 E enviou Absalão espias por todas as tribos de Israel, dizendo: Quando ouvirdes o som das trombetas, direis: Absalão reina em Hebrom.

11 And with Absalom, at his request, went two hundred men from Jerusalem, who were completely unconscious of his designs.
11 E de Jerusalém foram com Absalão duzentos homens convidados, porém iam na sua simplicidade, porque nada sabiam daquele negócio.

12 And Absalom sent for Ahithophel the Gilonite, one of David’s helpers, from Giloh his town, while he was making the offerings. And the design against David became strong, for more and more people were joined to Absalom.
12 Também Absalão mandou vir Aitofel, o gilonita, do conselho de Davi, à sua cidade de Gilo, estando ele sacrificando os seus sacrifícios; e a conjuração se fortificava, e vinha o povo e se aumentava com Absalão.

13 And one came to David and said, The hearts of the men of Israel have gone after Absalom.
13 Então, veio um mensageiro a Davi, dizendo: O coração de cada um em Israel segue a Absalão.

14 And David said to all his servants who were with him at Jerusalem, Come, let us go in flight, or not one of us will be safe from Absalom: let us go without loss of time, or he will overtake us quickly and send evil on us, and put the town to the sword.
14 Disse, pois, Davi a todos os seus servos que estavam com ele em Jerusalém: Levantai-vos, e fujamos, porque não poderíamos escapar diante de Absalão. Dai-vos pressa a caminhar, para que porventura não se apresse ele, e nos alcance, e lance sobre nós algum mal, e fira a cidade a fio de espada.

15 And the king’s servants said to the king, See, your servants are ready to do whatever the king says is to be done.
15 Então, os servos do rei disseram ao rei: Eis aqui os teus servos, para tudo quanto determinar o rei, nosso senhor.

16 So the king went out, taking with him all the people of his house, but for ten of his women, who were to take care of the house.
16 E saiu o rei, com toda a sua casa, a pé; deixou, porém, o rei dez mulheres concubinas, para guardarem a casa.

17 And the king went out, and all his servants went after him, and made a stop at the Far House.
17 Tendo, pois, saído o rei com todo o povo a pé, pararam num lugar distante.

18 And all the people went on by his side; and all the Cherethites and all the Pelethites and all the men of Ittai of Gath, six hundred men who came after him from Gath, went on before the king.
18 E todos os seus servos iam a seu lado, como também todos os quereteus e todos os peleteus; e todos os geteus, seiscentos homens que vieram de Gate a pé, caminhavam diante do rei.

19 Then the king said to Ittai the Gittite, Why are you coming with us? go back and keep with the king: for you are a man of another country, you are far from the land of your birth.
19 Disse, pois, o rei a Itai, o geteu: Por que irias tu também conosco? Volta, e fica-te com o rei, porque estranho és, e também te tornarás a teu lugar.

20 It was only yesterday you came to us; why then am I to make you go up and down with us? for I have to go where I may; go back then, and take your countrymen with you, and may the Lord’s mercy and good faith be with you.
20 Ontem, vieste, e te levaria eu hoje conosco a caminhar? Pois força me é ir aonde quer que puder ir; volta, pois, e torna a levar teus irmãos contigo, com beneficência e fidelidade.

21 And Ittai the Gittite in answer said, By the living Lord, and by the life of my lord the king, in whatever place my lord the king may be, for life or death, there will your servant be.
21 Respondeu, porém, Itai ao rei e disse: Vive o SENHOR, e vive o rei, meu senhor, que no lugar em que estiver o rei, meu senhor, seja para morte seja para vida, aí certamente estará também o teu servidor.

22 And David said to Ittai, Go forward, then. And Ittai the Gittite went on, with all his men and all the little ones he had with him.
22 Então, Davi disse a Itai: Vem, pois, e passa adiante. Assim, passou Itai, o geteu, e todos os seus homens, e todas as crianças que havia com ele.

23 And there was great weeping in all the country when all the people went through; and the king himself was waiting in the Kidron valley and all the people went by him in the direction of the olive-tree on the edge of the waste land.
23 E toda a terra chorava a grandes vozes, passando todo o povo; também o rei passou o ribeiro de Cedrom, e passou todo o povo na direção do caminho do deserto.

24 Then Zadok came, and Abiathar, and with them the ark of God’s agreement: and they put down the ark of God, till all the people from the town had gone by.
24 Eis que também Zadoque ali estava, e com ele todos os levitas que levavam a arca do concerto de Deus; e puseram ali a arca de Deus; e subiu Abiatar, até que todo o povo acabou de sair da cidade.

25 And the king said to Zadok, Take the ark of God back into the town: if I have grace in the eyes of the Lord, he will let me come back and see it and his House again:
25 Então disse o rei a Zadoque: Torna a levar a arca de Deus à cidade; se achar eu graça aos olhos do SENHOR, ele me tornará a trazer para lá e me deixará ver a ela e a sua habitação.

26 But if he says, I have no delight in you: then, here I am; let him do to me what seems good to him.
26 Se, porém, disser assim: Não tenho prazer em ti; eis-me aqui, faça de mim como parecer bem aos seus olhos.

27 The king said further to Zadok the priest, See, you and Abiathar are to go back to the town in peace, with your two sons, Ahimaaz, your son, and Jonathan, the son of Abiathar.
27 Disse mais o rei a Zadoque, o sacerdote: Não és tu, porventura, o vidente? Torna, pois, em paz para a cidade, e convosco também vossos dois filhos, Aimaás, teu filho, e Jônatas, filho de Abiatar.

28 See, I will be waiting at the way across the river, in the waste land, till I get news from you.
28 Olhai que me demorarei nas campinas do deserto até que tenha novas vossas.

29 So Zadok and Abiathar took the ark of God back to Jerusalem, and did not go away from there.
29 Zadoque, pois, e Abiatar tornaram a levar para Jerusalém a arca de Deus; e ficaram ali.

30 And David went up the slopes of the Mount of Olives weeping all the way, with his head covered and no shoes on his feet: and all the people who were with him, covering their heads, went up weeping.
30 E subiu Davi pela subida das Oliveiras, subindo e chorando, e com a cabeça coberta; e caminhava com os pés descalços; e todo o povo que ia com ele cobria cada um a sua cabeça, e subiam chorando sem cessar.

31 And word came to David, saying, Ahithophel is among those who are joined to Absalom. And David said, O Lord, let the wisdom of Ahithophel be made foolish.
31 Então, fizeram saber a Davi, dizendo: Também Aitofel está entre os que se conjuraram com Absalão. Pelo que disse Davi: Ó SENHOR, transtorna o conselho de Aitofel.

32 Now when David had come to the top of the slope, where they gave worship to God, Hushai the Archite came to him in great grief with dust on his head:
32 E aconteceu que, chegando Davi ao cume, para adorar ali a Deus, eis que Husai, o arquita, veio encontrar-se com ele, com a veste rasgada e terra sobre a cabeça.

33 David said to him, If you go on with me, you will be a trouble to me:
33 E disse-lhe Davi: Se passares comigo, ser-me-ás pesado.

34 But if you go back to the town and say to Absalom, I will be your servant, O king; as in the past I have been your father’s servant, so now I will be yours: then you will be able to keep Ahithophel’s designs against me from being put into effect.
34 Porém, se voltares para a cidade e disseres a Absalão: Eu serei, ó rei, teu servo, como fui dantes servo de teu pai, assim agora serei teu servo, dissipar-me-ás, então, o conselho de Aitofel.

35 And have you not there Zadok and Abiathar the priests? so whatever comes to your ears from the king’s house, give word of it to Zadok and Abiathar the priests.
35 E não estão ali contigo Zadoque e Abiatar, sacerdotes? E será que todas as coisas que ouvires da casa do rei farás saber a Zadoque e a Abiatar, sacerdotes.

36 See, they have with them their two sons, Ahimaaz, Zadok’s son, and Jonathan, the son of Abiathar; by them you may send word to me of everything which comes to your ears.
36 Eis que estão também ali com eles seus dois filhos, Aimaás, filho de Zadoque, e Jônatas, filho de Abiatar; pela mão deles aviso me mandareis de todas as coisas que ouvirdes.

37 So Hushai, David’s friend, went into the town, and Absalom came to Jerusalem.
37 Husai, pois, amigo de Davi, veio para a cidade; e Absalão entrou em Jerusalém.

2 Samuel 16

1 And when David had gone a little way past the top of the slope, Ziba, the servant of Mephibosheth, came to him, with two asses on which were two hundred cakes of bread and a hundred stems of dry grapes and a hundred summer fruits and a skin of wine.
1 E, passando Davi um pouco mais adiante do cume, eis que Ziba, o moço de Mefibosete, veio encontrar-se com ele, com um par de jumentos albardados, e sobre eles duzentos pães, com cem cachos de passas, e cem de frutas de verão, e um odre de vinho.

2 And David said to Ziba, What is your reason for this? And Ziba said, The asses are for the use of the king’s people, and the bread and the fruit are food for the young men; and the wine is for drink for those who are overcome by weariness in the waste land.
2 E disse o rei a Ziba: Que pretendes com isto? E disse Ziba: Os jumentos são para a casa do rei, para se montarem neles; e o pão e as frutas de verão, para os moços comerem; e o vinho, para beberem os cansados no deserto.

3 And the king said, And where is your master’s son? And Ziba said, He is still at Jerusalem: for he said, Today Israel will give back to me the kingdom of my father.
3 Então, disse o rei: Onde está, pois, o filho de teu senhor? E disse Ziba ao rei: Eis que ficou em Jerusalém; porque disse: Hoje, me restaurará a casa de Israel o reino de meu pai.

4 Then the king said to Ziba, Truly everything which was Mephibosheth’s is yours. And Ziba said, I give honour to my lord, may I have grace in your eyes, my lord, O king!
4 Então, disse o rei a Ziba: Eis que teu é tudo quanto tem Mefibosete. E disse Ziba: Eu me inclino e que eu ache graça aos teus olhos, ó rei, meu senhor.

5 And when King David came to Bahurim, a man of Saul’s family named Shimei, the son of Gera, came out from there, calling curses after him.
5 E, chegando o rei Davi a Baurim, eis que dali saiu um homem da linhagem da casa de Saul, cujo nome era Simei, filho de Gera; e, saindo, ia amaldiçoando.

6 And he sent stones at David and at all the king’s servants and at all the people and at all the men of war by his side, on the right hand and on the left.
6 E apedrejava com pedras a Davi e a todos os servos do rei Davi, ainda que todo o povo e todos os valentes iam à sua direita e à sua esquerda.

7 And Shimei said, with curses, Be gone, be gone, you man of blood, you good-for-nothing:
7 E, amaldiçoando-o Simei, assim dizia: Sai, sai, homem de sangue e homem de Belial!

8 The Lord has sent punishment on you for all the blood of the family of Saul, whose kingdom you have taken; and the Lord has given the kingdom to Absalom, your son: now you yourself are taken in your evil, because you are a man of blood.
8 O SENHOR te deu agora a paga de todo o sangue da casa Saul, em cujo lugar tens reinado; já deu o SENHOR o reino na mão de Absalão, teu filho; e eis-te agora na tua desgraça, porque és um homem de sangue.

9 Then Abishai, the son of Zeruiah, said to the king, Is this dead dog to go on cursing my lord the king? let me go over and take off his head.
9 Então, disse Abisai, filho de Zeruia, ao rei: Por que amaldiçoaria este cão morto ao rei, meu senhor? Deixa-me passar, e lhe tirarei a cabeça.

10 And the king said, What have I to do with you, you sons of Zeruiah? Let him go on cursing, for the Lord has said, Put a curse on David, and who then may say, Why have you done so?
10 Disse, porém, o rei: Que tenho eu convosco, filhos de Zeruia? Ora, deixai-o amaldiçoar, pois, se o SENHOR lhe disse: Amaldiçoa a Davi, quem, pois, diria: Por que assim fizeste?

11 And David said to Abishai and to all his servants, You see how my son, the offspring of my body, has made designs against my life: how much more then may this Benjamite do so? Let him be, and let him go on cursing; for the Lord has given him orders.
11 Disse mais Davi a Abisai e a todos os seus servos: Eis que meu filho, que descendeu de mim, procura a minha morte, quanto mais ainda este filho de Benjamim? Deixai-o; que amaldiçoe, porque o SENHOR lho disse.

12 It may be that the Lord will take note of my wrongs, and give me back good in answer to his cursing of me today.
12 Porventura, o SENHOR olhará para a minha miséria e o SENHOR me pagará com bem a sua maldição deste dia.

13 So David and his men went on their way: and Shimei went by the hillside parallel with them, cursing and sending stones and dust at him.
13 Prosseguiam, pois, o seu caminho, Davi e os seus homens; e também Simei ia ao longo do monte, defronte dele, caminhando e amaldiçoando, e atirava pedras contra ele, e levantava poeira.

14 And the king and his people came tired to Jordan, and took their rest there.
14 E o rei e todo o povo que ia com ele chegaram cansados e refrescaram-se ali.

15 And Absalom and the men of Israel came to Jerusalem, and Ahithophel was with him.
15 Absalão, pois, e todo o povo, os homens de Israel, vieram a Jerusalém; e Aitofel, com ele.

16 Then Hushai the Archite, David’s friend, came to Absalom and said, Long life to the king, long life to the king!
16 E sucedeu que, chegando Husai, o arquita, amigo de Davi, a Absalão, disse Husai a Absalão: Viva o rei, viva o rei!

17 And Absalom said, Is this your love for your friend? why did you not go with your friend?
17 Porém Absalão disse a Husai: É esta a tua beneficência para com o teu amigo? Por que não foste com o teu amigo?

18 And Hushai said to Absalom, Not so; I am for that man whom the Lord and this people and all the men of Israel have taken as king, and I will take my place with him.
18 E disse Husai a Absalão: Não, senão daquele que eleger o SENHOR, e todo este povo, e todos os homens de Israel, dele serei e com ele ficarei.

19 And more than this! where is my place as a servant? is it not before his son? as I have been your father’s servant, so will I be yours.
19 E, demais disso, a quem serviria eu? Porventura, não seria diante de seu filho? Como servi diante de teu pai, assim serei diante de ti.

20 Then Absalom said to Ahithophel, Give your opinion now, what are we to do?
20 Então, disse Absalão a Aitofel: Dai conselho entre vós sobre o que devemos fazer.

21 And Ahithophel said to Absalom, Go in to your father’s women who are here looking after his house; then all Israel will have the news that you are hated by your father, and the hands of your supporters will be strong.
21 E disse Aitofel a Absalão: Entra às concubinas de teu pai, que deixou para guardarem a casa; e, assim, todo o Israel ouvirá que te fizeste aborrecível para com teu pai, e se fortalecerão as mãos de todos os que estão contigo.

22 So they put up the tent for Absalom on the top of the house, and Absalom went in to his father’s women before the eyes of all Israel.
22 Estenderam, pois, para Absalão uma tenda no terrado, e entrou Absalão às concubinas de seu pai perante os olhos de todo o Israel.

23 In those days the opinions of Ahithophel were valued as highly as if through him a man might get direction from God; so were they valued by David as much as by Absalom.
23 E era o conselho de Aitofel, que aconselhava naqueles dias, como se a palavra de Deus se consultara: tal era todo o conselho de Aitofel, assim para com Davi como para com Absalão.

2 Samuel 17

1 Then Ahithophel said to Absalom, Let me take out twelve thousand men and this very night I will go after David:
1 Disse mais Aitofel a Absalão: Deixa-me escolher doze mil homens, e me levantarei e seguirei após Davi esta noite.

2 And I will come up with him when he is tired and feeble, and make him full of fear: and all the people with him will go in flight; and I will make an attack on the king only:
2 E irei sobre ele, pois está cansado e fraco das mãos; e o espantarei, e fugirá todo o povo que está com ele; e, então, ferirei o rei só.

3 And I will make all the people come back to you as a bride comes back to her husband: it is the life of only one man you are going after; so all the people will be at peace.
3 E farei tornar a ti todo o povo, pois o homem a quem tu buscas é como se tornassem todos; assim, todo o povo estará em paz.

4 And the saying was pleasing to Absalom and to the responsible men of Israel.
4 E esta palavra pareceu boa aos olhos de Absalão, e aos olhos de todos os anciãos de Israel.

5 Then Absalom said, Now send for Hushai the Archite, and let us give ear to what he has to say.
5 Disse, porém, Absalão: Chamai agora também a Husai, o arquita, e ouçamos também o que ele dirá.

6 And when Hushai came, Absalom said to him, This is what Ahithophel has said: are we to do as he says? if not, what is your suggestion?
6 E, chegando Husai a Absalão, lhe falou Absalão, dizendo: Desta maneira falou Aitofel: Faremos conforme à sua palavra? Se não, fala tu.

7 And Hushai said to Absalom, Ahithophel’s idea is not a good one at this time.
7 Então, disse Husai a Absalão: O conselho que Aitofel esta vez aconselhou não é bom.

8 Hushai said further, You have knowledge of your father and his men, that they are men of war, and that their feelings are bitter, like those of a bear in the field whose young ones have been taken from her: and your father is a man of war, and will not take his night’s rest with the people;
8 Disse mais Husai: Bem conheces tu a teu pai e a seus homens, que são valorosos e que estão com o espírito amargurado, como a ursa no campo, roubada dos cachorros; também teu pai é homem de guerra, e não passará a noite com o povo.

9 But he will certainly have taken cover now in some hole or secret place; and if some of our people, at the first attack, are overcome, then any hearing of it will say, There is destruction among the people who are on Absalom’s side.
9 Eis que agora estará escondido nalguma cova, ou em qualquer outro lugar; e será que, caindo no princípio alguns dentre eles, cada um que ouvir então dirá: Houve derrota no povo que segue Absalão.

10 Then even the strongest, whose heart is like the heart of a lion, will become like water; for all Israel is conscious that your father is a man of war, and those who are with him are strong and without fear.
10 Então, até o homem valente, cujo coração é como o coração de leão, sem dúvida desmaiará; porque todo o Israel sabe que teu pai é valoroso, e homens valentes, os que estão com ele.

11 But my suggestion is that all Israel, from Dan as far as Beer-sheba, comes together to you, a great army like the sands of the sea in number; and that you yourself go out among them.
11 Eu, porém, aconselho que, com toda a pressa, se ajunte a ti todo o Israel, desde Dã até Berseba, em multidão como a areia do mar, e que tu em pessoa vás à peleja.

12 Then we will come on him in some place, wherever he may be, falling on him as the dew comes on the earth: and of him and all the men who are with him not one will get away with his life.
12 Então, iremos a ele, em qualquer lugar que se achar, e facilmente viremos sobre ele, como o orvalho cai sobre a terra; e não ficará dele e de todos os homens que estão com ele nem ainda um só.

13 And if he has gone into some town, then let all Israel take strong cords to that town, and we will have it pulled into the valley, till not one small stone is to be seen there.
13 E, se ele se retirar para alguma cidade, todo o Israel trará cordas àquela cidade: e arrastá-la-emos até ao ribeiro, até que não se ache ali nem uma só pedrinha.

14 Then Absalom and all the men of Israel said, Hushai’s suggestion is better than that of Ahithophel. For it was the purpose of the Lord to make the wise designs of Ahithophel without effect, so that the Lord might send evil on Absalom.
14 Então, disse Absalão e todos os homens de Israel: Melhor é o conselho de Husai, o arquita, do que o conselho de Aitofel (porém assim o SENHOR o ordenara, para aniquilar o bom conselho de Aitofel, para que o SENHOR trouxesse o mal sobre Absalão).

15 Then Hushai said to Zadok and Abiathar, the priests, This is the suggestion made by Ahithophel to Absalom and the responsible men of Israel, and this is what I said to them.
15 E disse Husai a Zadoque e a Abiatar, sacerdotes: Assim e assim aconselhou Aitofel a Absalão e aos anciãos de Israel; porém assim e assim aconselhei eu.

16 So now send the news quickly to David, and say, Do not take your night’s rest by the way across the river to the waste land, but be certain to go over; or the king and all the people with him will come to destruction.
16 Agora, pois, enviai apressadamente, e avisai a Davi, dizendo: Não passes esta noite nas campinas do deserto, mas passa depressa à outra banda, para que o rei e todo o povo que com ele está não seja devorado.

17 Now Jonathan and Ahimaaz were waiting by En-rogel; and a servant-girl went from time to time and gave them news and they went with the news to King David, for it was not wise for them to let themselves be seen coming into the town.
17 Estavam, pois, Jônatas e Aimaás junto à fonte de Rogel, e foi uma criada, e lho disse, e eles foram, e disseram ao rei Davi, porque não podiam ser vistos entrar na cidade.

18 But a boy saw them, and gave word of it to Absalom: so the two of them went away quickly, and came to the house of a man in Bahurim who had a water-hole in his garden, and they went down into it.
18 Mas viu-os, todavia, um moço, e avisou a Absalão; porém ambos logo partiram apressadamente, e entraram em casa de um homem, em Baurim, o qual tinha um poço no seu pátio, e para ali desceram.

19 And a woman put a cover over the hole, and put crushed grain on top of it, and no one had any knowledge of it.
19 E tomou a mulher a tampa, e a estendeu sobre a boca do poço, e espalhou grão descascado sobre ela; assim, nada se soube.

20 And Absalom’s servants came to the woman at the house and said, Where are Ahimaaz and Jonathan? And the woman said to them, They have gone from here to the stream. And after searching for them, and seeing nothing of them, they went back to Jerusalem.
20 Chegando, pois, os servos de Absalão à mulher, àquela casa, disseram: Onde estão Aimaás e Jônatas? E a mulher lhes disse: Já passaram o vau das águas. E, havendo-os buscado, e não os achando, voltaram para Jerusalém.

21 Then after the servants had gone away, they came up out of the water-hole and went to give King David the news; and they said, Get up and go quickly over the water, for such and such are Ahithophel’s designs against you.
21 E sucedeu que, depois que partiram, saíram do poço, e foram, e anunciaram a Davi; e disseram a Davi: Levantai-vos, e passai depressa as águas, porque assim aconselhou contra vós Aitofel.

22 So David and all the people who were with him went up over Jordan: when dawn came, every one of them had gone over Jordan.
22 Então, Davi e todo o povo que com ele estava se levantou, e passaram o Jordão: e já pela luz da manhã nem ainda faltava um só que não passasse o Jordão.

23 Now when Ahithophel saw that his suggestion was not acted on, he got his ass ready, and went back to his house, to the town where he came from, and having put his house in order, he put himself to death by hanging; so he came to his end and was put in the resting-place of his father.
23 Vendo, pois, Aitofel que se não tinha seguido o seu conselho, albardou o jumento e levantou-se, e foi para sua casa e para a sua cidade, e pôs em ordem a sua casa, e se enforcou: e morreu, e foi sepultado na sepultura de seu pai.

24 And David came to Mahanaim. And Absalom, with all the men of Israel, went over Jordan.
24 E Davi veio a Maanaim; e Absalão passou o Jordão, ele e todo o homem de Israel com ele.

25 And Absalom put Amasa at the head of the army in place of Joab. Now Amasa was the son of a man named Ithra the Ishmaelite, who had been the lover of Abigail, the daughter of Jesse, sister of Zeruiah, Joab’s mother.
25 E Absalão constituiu a Amasa em lugar de Joabe sobre o arraial: e era Amasa filho de um homem cujo nome era Itra, o israelita, o qual entrara a Abigail, filha de Naás, irmã de Zeruia, mãe de Joabe.

26 And Israel and Absalom put up their tents in the land of Gilead.
26 Israel, pois, e Absalão acamparam na terra de Gileade.

27 Now when David had come to Mahanaim, Shobi, the son of Nahash of Rabbah, the Ammonite, and Machir, the son of Ammiel of Lo-debar, and Barzillai the Gileadite of Rogelim,
27 E sucedeu que, chegando Davi a Maanaim, Sobi, filho de Naás, de Rabá, dos filhos de Amom, e Maquir, filho de Amiel, de Lo-Debar, e Barzilai, o gileadita, de Rogelim,

28 Came with beds and basins and pots, and grain and meal, and all sorts of dry foods,
28 tomaram camas, e bacias, e vasilhas de barro, e trigo, e cevada, e farinha, e grão torrado, e favas, e lentilhas, também torradas,

29 And honey and butter and sheep and milk-cheeses, for David and his people: for they said, This people is in the waste land, needing food and drink and rest.
29 e mel, e manteiga, e ovelhas, e queijos de vacas, e os trouxeram a Davi e ao povo que com ele estava, para comerem, porque disseram: Este povo no deserto está faminto, e cansado, e sedento.

2 Samuel 18

1 And David had the people who were with him numbered, and he put over them captains of thousands and captains of hundreds.
1 E Davi contou o povo que tinha consigo e pôs sobre eles capitães de cem.

2 And David sent the people out, a third of them under the orders of Joab, and a third under the orders of Abishai, son of Zeruiah, Joab’s brother, and a third under Ittai the Gittite. And the king said to the people, And I myself will certainly go out with you.
2 E Davi enviou o povo, um terço debaixo da mão de Joabe, e outro terço debaixo da mão de Abisai, filho de Zeruia e irmão de Joabe, e outro terço debaixo da mão de Itai, o geteu; e disse o rei ao povo: Eu também juntamente sairei convosco.

3 But the people said, It is better for you not to go out: for if we are put to flight, they will not give a thought to us, and if death overtakes half of us, it will be nothing to them: but you are of more value than ten thousand of us: so it is better for you to be ready to come to our help from this town.
3 Porém o povo disse: Não sairás, porque, se formos obrigados a fugir, não porão o coração em nós; e, ainda que metade de nós morra, não porão o coração em nós, porque ainda, tais como nós somos, ajuntarás dez mil; melhor será, pois, que da cidade nos sirvas de socorro.

4 And the king said to them, I will do whatever seems best to you. So the king took his place by the door of the town, and all the people went out by hundreds and by thousands.
4 Então, Davi lhes disse: O que bem parecer aos vossos olhos, isso farei. E o rei se pôs da banda da porta, e todo o povo saiu em centenas e em milhares.

5 And the king gave orders to Joab and Abishai and Ittai, saying, Because of me, be gentle to the young man Absalom. And this order about Absalom was given in the hearing of all the people.
5 E o rei deu ordem a Joabe, e a Abisai, e a Itai, dizendo: Brandamente tratai por amor de mim ao jovem, a Absalão. E todo o povo ouviu quando o rei deu ordem a todos os capitães acerca de Absalão.

6 So the people went out into the field against Israel, and the fight took place in the woods of Ephraim.
6 Saiu, pois, o povo ao campo, a encontrar-se com Israel, e deu-se a batalha no bosque de Efraim.

7 And the people of Israel were overcome there by the servants of David, and there was a great destruction that day, and twenty thousand men were put to the sword.
7 E ali foi ferido o povo de Israel, diante dos servos de Davi; e, naquele mesmo dia, houve ali uma grande derrota de vinte mil.

8 And the fighting went on over all the face of the country: and the woods were responsible for more deaths than the sword.
8 Porque ali se estendeu a batalha sobre a face de toda aquela terra; e foram mais os do povo que consumiu o bosque do que os que a espada consumiu, naquele dia.

9 And Absalom came across some of David’s men. And Absalom was seated on his mule, and the mule went under the thick branches of a great tree, and his head became fixed in the tree and he was lifted up between earth and heaven, and the beast under him went on.
9 E Absalão se encontrou com os servos de Davi; e Absalão ia montado num mulo; e, entrando o mulo debaixo da espessura dos ramos de um grande carvalho, pegou-se-lhe a cabeça no carvalho, e ficou pendurado entre o céu e a terra; e o mulo, que estava debaixo dele, passou adiante.

10 And a certain man saw it and said to Joab, I saw Absalom hanging in a tree.
10 O que vendo um homem, o fez saber a Joabe e disse: Eis que vi Absalão pendurado num carvalho.

11 And Joab said to the man who had given him the news, If you saw this, why did you not put your sword through him, and I would have given you ten bits of silver and a band for your robe?
11 Então, disse Joabe ao homem que lho fizera saber: Pois que o viste, por que o não feriste logo ali em terra? E forçoso seria eu dar-lhe dez moedas de prata e um cinto.

12 And the man said to Joab, Even if you gave me a thousand bits of silver, I would not put out my hand against the king’s son: for in our hearing the king gave orders to you and Abishai and Ittai, saying, Take care that the young man Absalom is not touched.
12 Disse, porém, aquele homem a Joabe: Ainda que eu pudesse pesar nas minhas mãos mil moedas de prata, não estenderia a minha mão contra o filho do rei, pois bem ouvimos que o rei te deu ordem a ti, e a Abisai, e a Itai, dizendo: Guardai-vos, cada um, de tocar no jovem, em Absalão.

13 And if I had falsely put him to death (and nothing may be kept secret from the king), you would have had nothing to do with me.
13 Ainda que proferisse mentira com risco da minha vida, nem por isso coisa nenhuma se esconderia ao rei; e tu mesmo te oporias.

14 Then Joab said, I would have made it safe for you. And he took three spears in his hand, and put them through Absalom’s heart, while he was still living, in the branches of the tree.
14 Então, disse Joabe: Não me demorarei assim contigo aqui. E tomou três dardos e traspassou com eles o coração de Absalão, estando ele ainda vivo no meio do carvalho.

15 And ten young men, servants of Joab, came round Absalom and put an end to him.
15 E o cercaram dez jovens que levavam as armas de Joabe. E feriram a Absalão e o mataram.

16 And Joab had the horn sounded, and the people came back from going after Israel, for Joab kept them back.
16 Então, tocou Joabe a buzina, e voltou o povo de perseguir a Israel, porque Joabe deteve o povo.

17 And they took Absalom’s body and put it into a great hole in the wood, and put a great mass of stones over it: and every man of Israel went in flight to his tent.
17 E tomaram Absalão, e o lançaram no bosque, numa grande cova, e levantaram sobre ele um mui grande montão de pedras; e todo o Israel fugiu, cada um para a sua tenda.

18 Now Absalom, before his death, had put up for himself a pillar in the king’s valley, naming it after himself; for he said, I have no son to keep my name in memory: and to this day it is named Absalom’s pillar.
18 Ora, Absalão, quando ainda vivia, tinha tomado e levantado para si uma coluna, que está no vale do Rei, porque dizia: Filho nenhum tenho para conservar a memória do meu nome. E chamou aquela coluna pelo seu próprio nome; pelo que até ao dia de hoje se chama o Pilar de Absalão.

19 Then Ahimaaz, the son of Zadok, said, Let me go and give the king news of how the Lord has done right in his cause against those who took up arms against him.
19 Então, disse Aimaás, filho de Zadoque: Deixa-me correr, e anunciarei ao rei que já o SENHOR o vingou da mão de seus inimigos.

20 And Joab said, You will take no news today; another day you may give him the news, but you will take no news today, because the king’s son is dead.
20 Mas Joabe lhe disse: Tu não serás hoje o portador das novas, porém outro dia as levarás; mas hoje não darás a nova, porque é morto o filho do rei.

21 Then Joab said to the Cushite, Go and give the king word of what you have seen. And the Cushite, making a sign of respect to Joab, went off running.
21 E disse Joabe a um cuxita: Vai tu e dize ao rei o que viste. E o cuxita se inclinou a Joabe e correu.

22 Then Ahimaaz, the son of Zadok, said to Joab again, Whatever may come of it, let me go after the Cushite. And Joab said, Why have you a desire to go, my son, seeing that you will get no reward for your news?
22 E prosseguiu Aimaás, filho de Zadoque, e disse a Joabe: Seja o que for, deixa-me também correr após o cuxita. E disse Joabe: Para que agora correrias tu, meu filho, pois não tens mensagem conveniente?

23 Whatever may come of it, he said, I will go. Then he said to him, Go. So Ahimaaz went running by the lowland road and overtook the Cushite.
23 Seja o que for, disse Aimaás, correrei. E Joabe lhe disse: Corre. E Aimaás correu pelo caminho da planície e passou ao cuxita.

24 Now David was seated between the two town doors; and the watchman went up to the roof of the doorways, on the wall, and, lifting up his eyes, saw a man running by himself.
24 E Davi estava assentado entre as duas portas; e a sentinela subiu ao terraço da porta junto ao muro, e levantou os olhos, e olhou, e eis que um homem corria só.

25 And the watchman gave news of it to the king. And the king said, If he is coming by himself, then he has news. And the man was travelling quickly, and came near.
25 Gritou, pois, a sentinela e o disse ao rei: Se vem só, há novas em sua boca. E vinha andando e chegando.

26 Then the watchman saw another man running: and crying out in the direction of the door he said, Here is another man running by himself. And the king said, He, like the other, comes with news.
26 Então, viu a sentinela outro homem que corria, e a sentinela gritou ao porteiro, e disse: Eis que lá vem outro homem correndo só. Então, disse o rei: Também este traz novas.

27 And the watchman said, It seems to me that the running of the first is like the running of Ahimaaz, the son of Zadok. And the king said, He is a good man, and his news will be good.
27 Disse mais a sentinela: Vejo o correr do primeiro, que parece ser o correr de Aimaás, filho de Zadoque. Então, disse o rei: Este é homem de bem e virá com boas novas.

28 And Ahimaaz, crying out to the king, said, It is well. And falling down before the king, with his face to the earth, he said, May the Lord your God be praised, who has given up the men who took up arms against my lord the king!
28 Gritou, pois, Aimaás e disse ao rei: Paz. E inclinou-se ao rei com o rosto em terra e disse: Bendito seja o SENHOR, que entregou os homens que levantaram a mão contra o rei, meu senhor.

29 And the king said, Is it well with the young man Absalom? And Ahimaaz said in answer, When Joab sent me, your servant, I saw a great outcry going on, but I had no knowledge of what it was.
29 Então, disse o rei: Vai bem com o jovem, com Absalão? E disse Aimaás: Vi um grande alvoroço, quando Joabe mandou o servo do rei, e a mim, teu servo; porém não sei o que era.

30 And the king said, Get back and take your place here. So turning to one side, he took his place there.
30 E disse o rei: Vira-te e põe-te aqui. E virou-se e parou.

31 And then the Cushite came and said, I have news for my lord the king: today the Lord has done right in your cause against all those who took up arms against you.
31 E eis que vinha o cuxita e disse: Anunciar-se-á ao rei, meu senhor, que hoje o SENHOR te vingou da mão de todos os que se levantaram contra ti.

32 And the king said to the Cushite, Is the young man Absalom safe? And the Cushite said in answer, May all the king’s haters and those who do evil against the king, be as that young man is!
32 Então, disse o rei ao cuxita: Vai bem com o jovem, com Absalão? E disse o cuxita: Sejam como aquele jovem os inimigos do rei, meu senhor, e todos os que se levantaram contra ti para mal.

33 Then the king was much moved, and went up into the room over the door, weeping, and saying, O my son Absalom, my son, my son Absalom! if only my life might have been given for yours, O Absalom, my son, my son!
33 Então, o rei se perturbou, e subiu à sala que estava por cima da porta, e chorou; e, andando, dizia assim: Meu filho Absalão, meu filho, meu filho Absalão! Quem me dera que eu morrera por ti, Absalão, meu filho, meu filho!

2 Samuel 19

1 And word was given to Joab that the king was weeping and sorrowing for Absalom.
1 E disseram a Joabe: Eis que o rei anda chorando e lastima-se por Absalão.

2 And the salvation of that day was changed to sorrow for all the people: for it was said to the people, The king is in bitter grief for his son.
2 Então, a vitória se tornou, naquele mesmo dia, em tristeza para todo o povo; porque, naquele mesmo dia, o povo ouvira dizer: Mui triste está o rei por causa de seu filho.

3 And the people made their way back to the town quietly and secretly, as those who are shamed go secretly when they go in flight from the war.
3 E, naquele mesmo dia, o povo entrou às furtadelas na cidade, como o povo de vergonha se escoa quando foge da peleja.

4 But the king, covering his face, gave a great cry, O my son Absalom, O Absalom, my son, my son!
4 Estava, pois, o rei com o rosto coberto; e o rei gritava a alta voz: Meu filho Absalão, Absalão, meu filho, meu filho!

5 And Joab came into the house to the king and said, Today you have put to shame the faces of all your servants who even now have kept you and your sons and your daughters and your wives and all your women safe from death;
5 Então, entrou Joabe ao rei, em casa, e disse: Hoje, envergonhaste a face de todos os teus servos, que livraram hoje a tua vida, e a vida de teus filhos, e de tuas filhas, e a vida de tuas mulheres, e a vida de tuas concubinas,

6 For your haters, it seems, are dear to you, and your friends are hated. For you have made it clear that captains and servants are nothing to you: and now I see that if Absalom was living and we had all been dead today, it would have been right in your eyes.
6 amando tu aos que te aborrecem e aborrecendo aos que te amam; porque, hoje, dás a entender que nada valem para contigo capitães e servos; porque entendo, hoje, que, se Absalão vivesse, e todos nós, hoje, fôssemos mortos, então, bem te parecera aos teus olhos.

7 So get up now, and go out and say some kind words to your servants; for, by the Lord, I give you my oath, that if you do not go out, not one of them will keep with you tonight; and that will be worse for you than all the evil which has overtaken you from your earliest years.
7 Levanta-te, pois, agora; sai e fala conforme o coração de teus servos; porque, pelo SENHOR, te juro que, se não saíres, nem um só homem ficará contigo esta noite; e maior mal te será isso do que todo o mal que tem vindo sobre ti desde a tua mocidade até agora.

8 Then the king got up and took his seat near the town-door. And word was given to all the people that the king was in the public place: and all the people came before the king. Now all the men of Israel had gone back in flight to their tents.
8 Então, o rei se levantou e se assentou à porta, e fizeram saber a todo o povo, dizendo: Eis que o rei está assentado à porta. Então, todo o povo veio apresentar-se diante do rei; porém Israel fugiu cada um para as suas tendas.

9 And through all the tribes of Israel the people were having arguments, saying, The king made us safe from the hands of those who were against us and made us free from the hands of the Philistines; and now he has gone in flight from the land, because of Absalom.
9 E todo o povo, em todas as tribos de Israel, andava altercando entre si, dizendo: O rei nos tirou das mãos de nossos inimigos, e ele nos livrou das mãos dos filisteus; e agora fugiu da terra por causa de Absalão.

10 And Absalom, whom we made a ruler over us, is dead in the fight. So now why do you say nothing about getting the king back? And word of what all Israel was saying came to the king.
10 E Absalão, a quem ungimos sobre nós, já morreu na peleja; agora, pois, por que vos calais e não fazeis voltar o rei?

11 And King David sent word to Zadok and Abiathar, the priests, Say to the responsible men of Judah, Why are you the last to take steps to get the king back to his house?
11 Então, o rei Davi enviou a Zadoque e a Abiatar, sacerdotes, dizendo: Falai aos anciãos de Judá, dizendo: Por que seríeis vós os últimos em tornar a trazer o rei para a sua casa? (Porque as palavras de todo o Israel chegaram ao rei, até à sua casa.)

12 You are my brothers, my bone and my flesh; why are you the last to get the king back again?
12 Vós sois meus irmãos, meus ossos e minha carne sois vós; por que, pois, seríeis os últimos em tornar a trazer o rei?

13 And say to Amasa, Are you not my bone and my flesh? May God’s punishment be on me, if I do not make you chief of the army before me at all times in place of Joab!
13 E a Amasa direis: Porventura, não és tu meu osso e minha carne? Assim me faça Deus, e outro tanto, se não fores chefe do arraial diante de mim para sempre, em lugar de Joabe.

14 And the hearts of the men of Judah were moved like one man; so that they sent to the king, saying, Come back, with all your servants.
14 Assim, moveu o coração de todos os homens de Judá, como o de um só homem; e enviaram ao rei, dizendo: Volta tu com todos os teus servos.

15 So the king came back, and came as far as Jordan. And Judah came to Gilgal, meeting the king there, to take him back with them over Jordan.
15 Então, o rei voltou e chegou até ao Jordão; e Judá veio a Gilgal, para ir encontrar-se com o rei, à outra banda do Jordão.

16 And Shimei, the son of Gera, the Benjamite from Bahurim, got up quickly and went down with the men of Judah for the purpose of meeting King David;
16 E apressou-se Simei, filho de Gera, filho de Benjamim, que era de Baurim; e desceu com os homens de Judá a encontrar-se com o rei Davi.

17 And with him a thousand men of Benjamin, and Ziba, the servant of Saul, with his fifteen sons and twenty servants, came rushing to Jordan before the king,
17 E com ele mil varões de Benjamim, como também Ziba, servo da casa de Saul, e seus quinze filhos, e seus vinte servos com ele; e prontamente passaram o Jordão adiante do rei.

18 And kept going across the river to take the people of the king’s house over, and to do whatever was desired by the king. And Shimei, the son of Gera, went down on his face in the dust before the king, when he was about to go over Jordan,
18 E, passando a barca, para fazer passar a casa do rei e para fazer o que bem parecesse aos seus olhos, então, Simei, filho de Gera, se prostrou diante do rei, passando ele o Jordão.

19 And said to him, Let me not be judged as a sinner in your eyes, O my lord, and do not keep in mind the wrong I did on the day when my lord the king went out of Jerusalem, or take it to heart.
19 E disse ao rei: Não me impute meu senhor a minha culpa, e não te lembres do que tão perversamente fez teu servo, no dia em que o rei, meu senhor, saiu de Jerusalém; não conserve o rei isso no coração.

20 For your servant is conscious of his sin: and so, as you see, I have come today, the first of all the sons of Joseph, for the purpose of meeting my lord the king.
20 Porque teu servo deveras confessa que eu pequei; porém eis que eu sou o primeiro que de toda a casa de José desci a encontrar-me com o rei, meu senhor.

21 But Abishai, the son of Zeruiah, said, Is not death the right fate for Shimei, because he has been cursing the one marked by the holy oil?
21 Então, respondeu Abisai, filho de Zeruia, e disse: Não morreria, pois, Simei por isso, havendo amaldiçoado ao ungido do SENHOR?

22 And David said, What have I to do with you, you sons of Zeruiah, that you put yourselves against me today? is it right for any man in Israel to be put to death today? for I am certain today that I am king in Israel.
22 Porém Davi disse: Que tenho eu convosco, filhos de Zeruia, para que hoje me sejais adversários? Morreria alguém hoje em Israel? Por que, porventura, não sei que hoje fui feito rei sobre Israel?

23 So the king said to Shimei, You will not be put to death. And the king gave him his oath.
23 E disse o rei a Simei: Não morrerás. E o rei lho jurou.

24 And Mephibosheth, the son of Saul’s son, came down for the purpose of meeting the king; his feet had not been cared for or his hair cut or his clothing washed from the day when the king went away till the day when he came back in peace.
24 Também Mefibosete, filho de Saul, desceu a encontrar-se com o rei e não tinha lavado os pés, nem tinha feito a barba, nem tinha lavado as suas vestes desde o dia em que o rei tinha saído até ao dia em que voltou em paz.

25 Now when he had come from Jerusalem to see the king, the king said to him, Why did you not come with me, Mephibosheth?
25 E sucedeu que, vindo ele a Jerusalém a encontrar-se com o rei, disse-lhe o rei: Por que não foste comigo, Mefibosete?

26 And he said in answer, Because of the deceit of my servant, my lord king: for I, your servant, said to him, You are to make ready an ass and on it I will go with the king, for your servant has not the use of his feet.
26 E disse ele: Ó rei, meu senhor, o meu servo me enganou; porque o teu servo dizia: Albardarei um jumento, e nele montarei, e irei com o rei; pois o teu servo é coxo.

27 He has given you a false account of me: but my lord the king is like the angel of God: do then whatever seems good to you.
27 De mais disso, falsamente acusou o teu servo diante do rei, meu senhor; porém o rei, meu senhor, é como um anjo de Deus; faze, pois, o que parecer bem aos teus olhos.

28 For all my father’s family were only dead men before my lord the king: and still you put your servant among those whose place is at the king’s table. What right then have I to say anything more to the king?
28 Porque toda a casa de meu pai não era senão de homens dignos de morte diante do rei meu senhor; e, contudo, puseste a teu servo entre os que comem à tua mesa; e que mais direito tenho eu de clamar ao rei?

29 And the king said, Say nothing more about these things. I say, Let there be a division of the land between Ziba and you.
29 E disse-lhe o rei: Por que ainda falas mais de teus negócios? Já disse eu: Tu e Ziba, reparti as terras.

30 And Mephibosheth said, Let him take it all, now that my lord the king has come back to his house in peace!
30 E disse Mefibosete ao rei: Tome ele também tudo, pois já veio o rei, meu senhor, em paz à sua casa.

31 And Barzillai the Gileadite came down from Rogelim; and he went on as far as Jordan with the king to take him across Jordan.
31 Também Barzilai, o gileadita, desceu de Rogelim e passou com o rei o Jordão, para o acompanhar à outra banda do Jordão.

32 Now Barzillai was a very old man, as much as eighty years old: and he had given the king everything he had need of, while he was at Mahanaim, for he was a very great man.
32 E era Barzilai mui velho, da idade de oitenta anos; e ele tinha sustentado o rei, quando tinha a sua morada em Maanaim, porque era homem mui grande.

33 And the king said to Barzillai, Come over with me, and I will take care of you in Jerusalem.
33 E disse o rei a Barzilai: Passa tu comigo, e sustentar-te-ei comigo em Jerusalém.

34 And Barzillai said to the king, How much of my life is still before me, for me to go up to Jerusalem with the king?
34 Porém Barzilai disse ao rei: Quantos serão os dias dos anos da minha vida, para que suba com o rei a Jerusalém?

35 I am now eighty years old: good and bad are the same to me; have meat and drink any taste for me now? am I able to take pleasure in the voices of men or women in song? why then am I to be a trouble to my lord the king?
35 Da idade de oitenta anos sou eu hoje; poderia eu discernir entre bom e mau? Poderia o teu servo ter gosto no que comer e beber? Poderia eu mais ouvir a voz dos cantores e cantoras? E por que será o teu servo ainda pesado ao rei, meu senhor?

36 Your servant’s desire was only to take the king over Jordan; why is the king to give me such a reward?
36 Com o rei passará teu servo ainda um pouco mais além do Jordão; e por que me recompensará o rei com tal recompensa?

37 Let your servant now go back again, so that when death comes to me, it may be in my town and by the resting-place of my father and mother. But here is your servant Chimham: let him go with my lord the king, and do for him what seems good to you.
37 Deixa voltar o teu servo, e morrerei na minha cidade junto à sepultura de meu pai e de minha mãe; mas eis aí está o teu servo Quimã; que passe com o rei, meu senhor, e faze-lhe o que bem parecer aos teus olhos.

38 And the king said in answer, Let Chimham go over with me, and I will do for him whatever seems good to you: and whatever your desire is, I will do it for you.
38 Então, disse o rei: Quimã passará comigo, e eu lhe farei como bem parecer aos teus olhos, e tudo quanto me pedires te farei.

39 Then all the people went over Jordan, and the king went over: and the king gave Barzillai a kiss, with his blessing; and he went back to his place.
39 Havendo, pois, todo o povo passado o Jordão, e, passando também o rei, beijou o rei a Barzilai e o abençoou; e ele voltou para o seu lugar.

40 So the king went over to Gilgal, and Chimham went with him: and all the people of Judah, as well as half the people of Israel, took the king on his way.
40 E dali passou o rei a Gilgal, e Quimã passou com ele; e todo o povo de Judá conduziu o rei, como também a metade do povo de Israel.

41 Then the men of Israel came to the king and said, Why have our countrymen of Judah taken you away in secret and come over Jordan with the king and all his family, because all his people are David’s men?
41 E eis que todos os homens de Israel vieram ao rei e disseram ao rei: Por que te furtaram nossos irmãos, os homens de Judá, e conduziram o rei e a sua casa por sobre o Jordão e todos os homens de Davi com eles?

42 And all the men of Judah gave this answer to the men of Israel, Because the king is our near relation: why then are you angry about this? have we taken any of the king’s food, or has he given us any offering?
42 Então, responderam todos os homens de Judá aos homens de Israel: Porquanto o rei é nosso parente; e por que vos irais por isso? Porventura, comemos à custa do rei ou nos apresentou algum presente?

43 And in answer to the men of Judah, the men of Israel said, We have ten parts in the king, and we are the first in order of birth: why did you make nothing of us? and were we not the first to make suggestions for getting the king back? And the words of the men of Judah were more violent than the words of the men of Israel.
43 E responderam os homens de Israel aos homens de Judá e disseram: Dez partes temos no rei e até em Davi mais temos nós do que vós; porque, pois, fizestes pouca conta de nós, para que a nossa palavra não fosse a primeira, para tornar a trazer o nosso rei? Porém a palavra dos homens de Judá foi mais forte do que a palavra dos homens de Israel.

2 Samuel 20

1 Now by chance there was present a good-for-nothing person named Sheba, the son of Bichri, a Benjamite: and he, sounding the horn, said, We have no part in David, or any interest in the son of Jesse: let every man go to his tent, O Israel.
1 Então, se achou ali, por acaso, um homem de Belial, cujo nome era Seba, filho de Bicri, homem de Benjamim, o qual tocou a buzina e disse: Não temos parte em Davi, nem herança no filho de Jessé; cada um às suas tendas, ó Israel.

2 So all the men of Israel, turning away from David, went after Sheba, the son of Bichri: but the men of Judah were true to their king, going with him from Jordan as far as Jerusalem.
2 Então, todos os homens de Israel deixaram de seguir Davi e seguiram Seba, filho de Bicri; porém os homens de Judá se uniram ao seu rei, desde o Jordão até Jerusalém.

3 And David came to his house at Jerusalem: and the king took the ten women to whom he had given the care of the house, and had them shut up, and gave them the necessaries of life, but did not go near them. So they were shut up till the day of their death, living as widows.
3 Vindo, pois, Davi para sua casa, a Jerusalém, tomou o rei as dez mulheres, suas concubinas, que deixara para guardarem a casa, e as pôs numa casa em guarda, e as sustentava; porém não entrou a elas; e estiveram encerradas até ao dia da sua morte, vivendo como viúvas.

4 Then the king said to Amasa, Get all the men of Judah together, and in three days be here yourself.
4 Disse mais o rei a Amasa: Convoca-me os homens de Judá para o terceiro dia e tu, então, apresenta-te aqui.

5 So Amasa went to get all the men of Judah together, but he took longer than the time David had given him.
5 E foi Amasa para convocar a Judá; porém demorou-se além do tempo que lhe tinha designado.

6 And David said to Abishai, Sheba, the son of Bichri, will do us more damage than Absalom did; so take some of your lord’s servants and go after him, before he makes himself safe in the walled towns, and gets away before our eyes.
6 Então, disse Davi a Abisai: Mais mal agora nos fará Seba, o filho de Bicri, do que Absalão; pelo que toma tu os servos de teu senhor e persegue-o, para que, porventura, não ache para si cidades fortes e escape dos nossos olhos.

7 So there went after Abishai, Joab and the Cherethites and the Pelethites and all the fighting-men; they went out of Jerusalem to overtake Sheba, the son of Bichri.
7 Então, saíram atrás dele os homens de Joabe, e os quereteus, e os peleteus, e todos os valentes; estes saíram de Jerusalém para irem atrás de Seba, filho de Bicri.

8 When they were at the great stone which is in Gibeon, Amasa came face to face with them. Now Joab had on his war-dress, and round him a band from which his sword was hanging in its cover; and while he was walking, it came out, falling to the earth.
8 Chegando eles, pois, à pedra grande que está junto a Gibeão, Amasa veio perante eles; e estava Joabe cingido da sua roupa que vestiu e sobre ela um cinto com a espada, em seus lombos, na sua bainha; e, adiantando-se ele, lhe caiu.

9 And Joab said to Amasa, Is it well, my brother? And with his right hand he took him by the hair of his chin to give him a kiss.
9 E disse Joabe a Amasa: Vai contigo bem, meu irmão? E Joabe, com a mão direita, pegou da barba de Amasa, para o beijar.

10 But Amasa did not see danger from the sword which was now in Joab’s left hand, and Joab put it through his stomach so that his inside came out on to the earth, and he did not give him another blow. So Joab and his brother Abishai went on after Sheba, the son of Bichri.
10 E Amasa não se resguardou da espada que estava na mão de Joabe, de sorte que este o feriu com ela na quinta costela e lhe derramou por terra as entranhas; e não o feriu segunda vez, e morreu; então, Joabe e Abisai, seu irmão, foram atrás de Seba, filho de Bicri.

11 And one of Joab’s young men, taking his place at Amasa’s side, said, Whoever is for Joab and for David, let him go after Joab!
11 Mas um dentre os moços de Joabe parou junto a ele e disse: Quem há que bem queira a Joabe e quem seja por Davi, siga a Joabe.

12 And Amasa was stretched out in a pool of blood in the middle of the highway. And when the man saw that all the people were stopping, he took Amasa out of the highway and put him in a field, with a cloth over him, when he saw that everyone who went by came to a stop.
12 E Amasa estava envolto no seu sangue no meio do caminho; e, vendo aquele homem que todo o povo parava, desviou a Amasa do caminho para o campo e lançou sobre ele um manto; porque via que todo aquele que chegava a ele parava.

13 When he had been taken off the road, all the people went on after Joab in search of Sheba, the son of Bichri.
13 E, como estava apartado do caminho, todos os homens seguiram a Joabe, para perseguirem a Seba, filho de Bicri.

14 And Sheba went through all the tribes of Israel, to Abel of Beth-maacah; and all the Bichrites came together and went in after him.
14 E passou por todas as tribos de Israel até Abel-Bete-Maaca e a todos os beritas; e ajuntaram-se todos e também o seguiram.

15 And Joab and his men got him shut up in Abel of Beth-maacah, and put up an earthwork against the town: and all Joab’s men did their best to get the wall broken down.
15 E vieram, e o cercaram em Abel-Bete-Maaca, e levantaram uma tranqueira contra a cidade, assim que já estava em frente do antemuro; e todo o povo que estava com Joabe batia no muro, para o derribar.

16 Then a wise woman got up on the wall, and crying out from the town, said, Give ear, give ear; say now to Joab, Come near, so that I may have talk with you.
16 Então, uma mulher sábia gritou de dentro da cidade: Ouvi, ouvi, peço-vos que digais a Joabe: Chega-te cá, para que eu te fale.

17 And he came near, and the woman said, Are you Joab? And he said in answer, I am. Then she said, Give ear to your servant’s words. And he said, I am giving ear.
17 Chegou-se a ela, e disse a mulher: Tu és Joabe? E disse ele: Eu sou. E ela lhe disse: Ouve as palavras de tua serva. E disse ele: Ouço.

18 Then she said, In the old days, there was a saying, Let them put the question in Abel and in Dan, saying, Has what was ordered by men of good faith in Israel ever come to an end?
18 Então, falou ela, dizendo: Antigamente, costumava-se falar, dizendo: Certamente, pediram conselho a Abel; e assim o cumpriam.

19 Your purpose is the destruction of a mother-town in Israel: why would you put an end to the heritage of the Lord?
19 Eu sou uma das pacíficas e das fiéis em Israel; e tu procuras matar uma cidade que é mãe em Israel; por que, pois, devorarias a herança do SENHOR?

20 And Joab, answering her, said, Far, far be it from me to be a cause of death or destruction;
20 Então, respondeu Joabe e disse: Longe, longe de mim que eu tal faça, que eu devore ou arruíne!

21 Not so: but a man of the hill-country of Ephraim, Sheba, son of Bichri, by name, has taken up arms against the king, against David: give up this man only, and I will go away from the town. And the woman said to Joab, His head will be dropped over the wall to you.
21 A coisa não é assim; porém um só homem do monte de Efraim, cujo nome é Seba, filho de Bicri, levantou a mão contra o rei, contra Davi; entregai-me só este, e retirar-me-ei da cidade. Então, disse a mulher a Joabe: Eis que te será lançada a sua cabeça pelo muro.

22 Then the woman in her wisdom had talk with all the town. And they had Sheba’s head cut off and sent out to Joab. And he had the horn sounded, and sent them all away from the town, every man to his tent. And Joab went back to Jerusalem to the king.
22 E a mulher, na sua sabedoria, entrou a todo o povo, e cortaram a cabeça de Seba, filho de Bicri, e a lançaram a Joabe; então, tocou este a buzina, e se retiraram da cidade, cada um para as suas tendas. E Joabe voltou a Jerusalém, ao rei.

23 Now Joab was over all the army; and Benaiah, the son of Jehoiada, was at the head of the Cherethites and the Pelethites;
23 E Joabe estava sobre todo o exército de Israel; e Benaia, filho de Joiada, sobre os quereteus e sobre os peleteus;

24 And Adoram was overseer of the forced work; and Jehoshaphat, the son of Ahilud, was the recorder;
24 e Adorão, sobre os tributos; e Josafá, filho de Ailude, era o chanceler;

25 And Sheva was the scribe, and Zadok and Abiathar were priests;
25 e Seva, o escrivão; e Zadoque e Abiatar, os sacerdotes;

26 And in addition, Ira the Jairite was a priest to David.
26 e também Ira, o jairita, era o oficial-mor de Davi.

2 Samuel 21

1 In the days of David they were short of food for three years, year after year; and David went before the Lord for directions. And the Lord said, On Saul and on his family there is blood, because he put the Gibeonites to death.
1 E houve, em dias de Davi, uma fome de três anos, de ano em ano; e Davi consultou ao SENHOR, e o SENHOR lhe disse: É por causa de Saul e da sua casa sanguinária, porque matou os gibeonitas.

2 Then the king sent for the Gibeonites; (now the Gibeonites were not of the children of Israel, but were the last of the Amorites, to whom the children of Israel had given an oath; but Saul, in his passion for the children of Israel and Judah, had made an attempt on their lives:)
2 Então, chamou o rei os gibeonitas e lhes falou (ora os gibeonitas não eram dos filhos de Israel, mas do resto dos amorreus, e os filhos de Israel lhes tinham jurado, porém Saul procurou feri-los no seu zelo pelos filhos de Israel e de Judá).

3 So David said to the Gibeonites, What may I do for you? how am I to make up to you for your wrongs, so that you may give a blessing to the heritage of the Lord?
3 Disse, pois, Davi aos gibeonitas: Que quereis que eu vos faça? E que satisfação vos darei, para que abençoeis a herança do SENHOR?

4 And the Gibeonites said to him, It is not a question of silver and gold between us and Saul or his family; and it is not in our power to put to death any man in Israel. And he said, Say, then, what am I to do for you?
4 Então, os gibeonitas lhe disseram: Não é por prata nem ouro que temos questão com Saul e com sua casa; nem tampouco pretendemos matar pessoa alguma em Israel. E disse ele: Que é, pois, que quereis que vos faça?

5 And they said to the king, As for the man by whom we were wasted, and who made designs against us to have us completely cut off from the land of Israel,
5 E disseram ao rei: Quanto ao homem que nos destruiu e procurou que fôssemos assolados, sem que pudéssemos subsistir em termo algum de Israel,

6 Let seven men of his family be given up to us and we will put an end to them by hanging them before the Lord in Gibeon, on the hill of the Lord. And the king said, I will give them.
6 de seus filhos se nos dêem sete homens, para que os enforquemos ao SENHOR, em Gibeá de Saul, o eleito do SENHOR. E disse o rei: Eu os darei.

7 But the king did not give up Mephibosheth, the son of Saul’s son Jonathan, because of the Lord’s oath made between David and Jonathan, the son of Saul.
7 Porém o rei poupou a Mefibosete, filho de Jônatas, filho de Saul, por causa do juramento do SENHOR, que entre eles houvera, entre Davi e Jônatas, filho de Saul.

8 But the king took Armoni and Mephibosheth, the two sons of Saul to whom Rizpah, the daughter of Aiah, had given birth; and the five sons of Saul’s daughter Merab, whose father was Adriel, the son of Barzillai the Meholathite:
8 Porém tomou o rei os dois filhos de Rispa, filha de Aiá, que tinha tido de Saul, a saber, a Armoni e a Mefibosete, como também os cinco filhos da irmã de Mical, filha de Saul, que tivera de Adriel, filho de Barzilai, meolatita.

9 And he gave them up to the Gibeonites, and they put them to death, hanging them on the mountain before the Lord; all seven came to their end together in the first days of the grain-cutting, at the start of the cutting of the barley.
9 E os entregou na mão dos gibeonitas, os quais os enforcaram no monte, perante o SENHOR; e caíram estes sete juntamente; e foram mortos nos dias da sega, nos dias primeiros, no princípio da sega das cevadas.

10 And Rizpah, the daughter of Aiah, took haircloth, placing it on the rock as a bed for herself, from the start of the grain-cutting till rain came down on them from heaven; and she did not let the birds of the air come near them by day, or the beasts of the field by night.
10 Então, Rispa, filha de Aiá, tomou um pano de cilício, e estendeu-lho sobre uma penha, desde o princípio da sega, até que destilou a água sobre eles do céu, e não deixou que as aves do céu se aproximassem deles de dia, nem os animais do campo de noite.

11 And news was given to David of what Rizpah, the daughter of Aiah, one of Saul’s wives, had done.
11 E foi dito a Davi o que fizera Rispa, filha de Aiá, concubina de Saul.

12 And David went and took the bones of Saul and his son Jonathan from the men of Jabesh-gilead, who had taken them away secretly from the public place of Beth-shan, where the Philistines had put them, hanging up the bodies there on the day when they put Saul to death in Gilboa:
12 Então, foi Davi e tomou os ossos de Saul, e os ossos de Jônatas, seu filho, dos moradores de Jabes-Gileade, os quais os furtaram da rua de Bete-Seã, onde os filisteus os tinham pendurado, quando os filisteus feriram a Saul em Gilboa.

13 And he took the bones of Saul and his son Jonathan from that place; and they got together the bones of those who had been put to death by hanging.
13 E fez subir dali os ossos de Saul e os ossos de Jônatas, seu filho; e ajuntaram também os ossos dos enforcados.

14 And they put them with the bones of Saul and his son Jonathan in the resting-place of Kish, his father, in Zela in the country of Benjamin; they did all the king had given them orders to do. And after that, God gave ear to their prayers for the land.
14 Enterraram os ossos de Saul e de Jônatas, seu filho, na terra de Benjamim, em Zela, na sepultura de Quis, seu pai, e fizeram tudo o que o rei ordenara; e, depois disso, Deus se aplacou para com a terra.

15 And the Philistines went to war again with Israel; and David went down with his people, and while they were at Gob they had a fight with the Philistines:
15 Tiveram mais os filisteus uma peleja contra Israel; e desceu Davi, e com ele os seus servos, e tanto pelejaram contra os filisteus, que Davi se cansou.

16 And there came against David one of the offspring of the Rephaim, whose spear was three hundred shekels of brass in weight, and having a new sword, he made an attempt to put David to death.
16 E Isbi-Benobe, que era dos filhos dos gigantes, e o peso de cuja lança tinha trezentos siclos de cobre, e que cingia uma espada nova, este intentou ferir Davi.

17 But Abishai, the son of Zeruiah, came to his help, and, turning on the Philistine, gave him his death-blow. Then David’s men took an oath, and said, Never again are you to go out with us to the fight, so that you may not put out the light of Israel.
17 Porém Abisai, filho de Zeruia, o socorreu, e feriu o filisteu, e o matou; então, os homens de Davi lhe juraram, dizendo: Nunca mais sairás conosco à peleja, para que não apagues a lâmpada de Israel.

18 Now after this there was war with the Philistines again at Gob, and Sibbecai the Hushathite put to death Saph, one of the offspring of the Rephaim.
18 E aconteceu, depois disso, que houve em Gobe ainda outra peleja contra os filisteus; então, Sibecai, o husatita, feriu a Safe, que era dos filhos dos gigantes.

19 And again there was war with the Philistines at Gob, and Elhanan, the son of Jair the Beth-lehemite, put to death Goliath the Gittite, the stem of whose spear was like a cloth-worker’s rod.
19 Houve mais outra peleja contra os filisteus em Gobe; e Elanã, filho de Jaaré-Oregim, o belemita, feriu Golias, o geteu, de cuja lança era a haste como eixo de tecelão.

20 And again there was war at Gath, where there was a very tall man, who had twenty-four fingers and toes, six fingers on his hands and six toes on his feet; he was one of the offspring of the Rephaim.
20 Houve ainda também outra peleja em Gate, onde estava um homem de alta estatura, que tinha em cada mão seis dedos e em cada pé outros seis, vinte e quatro por todos, e também este nascera dos gigantes.

21 And when he was purposing to put shame on Israel, Jonathan, the son of Shimei, David’s brother, put him to death.
21 E injuriava a Israel; porém Jônatas, filho de Siméia, irmão de Davi, o feriu.

22 These four were of the offspring of the Rephaim in Gath; and they came to their end by the hands of David and his servants.
22 Estes quatro nasceram dos gigantes em Gate; e caíram pela mão de Davi e pela mão de seus servos.

2 Samuel 22

1 And David made a song to the Lord in these words, on the day when the Lord made him free from the hands of all his haters, and from the hand of Saul:
1 E falou Davi ao SENHOR as palavras deste cântico, no dia em que o SENHOR o livrou das mãos de todos os seus inimigos e das mãos de Saul.

2 And he said, The Lord is my Rock, my walled town, and my saviour, even mine;
2 Disse, pois: O SENHOR é o meu rochedo, e o meu lugar forte, e o meu libertador.

3 My God, my Rock, in him will I put my faith; my breastplate, and the horn of my salvation, my high tower, and my safe place; my saviour, who keeps me safe from the violent man.
3 Deus é o meu rochedo, e nele confiarei; o meu escudo, e a força de minha salvação, e o meu alto retiro, e o meu refúgio. Ó meu Salvador, de violência me salvaste.

4 I will send up my cry to the Lord, who is to be praised; so will I be made safe from those who are against me.
4 O SENHOR, digno de louvor, invoquei e de meus inimigos fiquei livre.

5 For the waves of death came round me, and the seas of evil put me in fear;
5 Porque me cercaram as ondas de morte, as torrentes de Belial me assombraram.

6 The cords of hell were round me: the nets of death came on me.
6 Cordas do inferno me cingiram, e encontraram-me laços de morte.

7 In my trouble my voice went up to the Lord, and my cry to my God: my voice came to his hearing in his holy Temple, and my prayer came to his ears.
7 Estando em angústia, invoquei ao SENHOR e a meu Deus clamei; do seu templo ouviu ele a minha voz, e o meu clamor chegou aos seus ouvidos.

8 Then the earth was moved with a violent shock; the bases of heaven were moved and shaking, because he was angry.
8 Então, se abalou e tremeu a terra, os fundamentos dos céus se moveram e abalaram, porque ele se irou.

9 There went up a smoke from his nose, and a fire of destruction from his mouth: coals were lighted by it.
9 Subiu a fumaça de seus narizes, e, da sua boca, um fogo devorador; carvões se incenderam dele.

10 The heavens were bent, so that he might come down; and it was dark under his feet.
10 E abaixou os céus, e desceu, e uma escuridão havia debaixo de seus pés.

11 And he went through the air, seated on a storm-cloud: going quickly on the wings of the wind.
11 E subiu um querubim, e voou; e foi visto sobre as asas do vento.

12 And he made the dark his tent round him, a mass of waters, thick clouds of the skies.
12 E por tendas pôs as trevas ao redor de si, ajuntamento de águas, nuvens dos céus.

13 Before his shining light his dark clouds went past, raining ice and coals of fire.
13 Pelo resplendor da sua presença, brasas de fogo se acendem.

14 The Lord made thunder in the heavens, and the voice of the Highest was sounding out.
14 Trovejou desde os céus o SENHOR e o Altíssimo fez soar a sua voz.

15 And he sent out his arrows, driving them in all directions; by his flames of fire they were troubled.
15 E disparou flechas e os dissipou; raios, e os perturbou.

16 Then the deep beds of the sea were seen, and the bases of the world were uncovered, because of the Lord’s wrath, because of the breath of his mouth.
16 E apareceram as profundezas do mar, os fundamentos do mundo se descobriram, pela repreensão do SENHOR, pelo sopro do vento dos seus narizes.

17 He sent from on high, he took me, pulling me out of great waters.
17 Desde o alto enviou e me tomou; tirou-me das muitas águas.

18 He made me free from my strong hater, from those who were against me, because they were stronger than I.
18 Livrou-me do meu possante inimigo e daqueles que me tinham ódio, porque eram mais fortes do que eu.

19 They came on me in the day of my trouble: but the Lord was my support.
19 Encontraram-me no dia da minha calamidade; porém o SENHOR se fez o meu esteio.

20 He took me out into a wide place; he was my saviour because he had delight in me.
20 E tirou-me para o largo e arrebatou-me dali, porque tinha prazer em mim.

21 The Lord gives me the reward of my righteousness, because my hands are clean before him.
21 Recompensou-me o SENHOR conforme a minha justiça, conforme a pureza de minhas mãos me retribuiu.

22 For I have kept the ways of the Lord; I have not been turned away in sin from my God.
22 Porque guardei os caminhos do SENHOR e não me apartei impiamente do meu Deus.

23 For all his decisions were before me, and I did not put away his laws from me.
23 Porque todos os seus juízes estavam diante de mim, e de seus estatutos me não desviei.

24 And I was upright before him, and I kept myself from sin.
24 Porém fui sincero perante ele e guardei-me da minha iniqüidade.

25 Because of this the Lord has given me the reward of my righteousness, because my hands are clean in his eyes.
25 E me retribuiu o SENHOR conforme a minha justiça, conforme a minha pureza diante dos seus olhos.

26 On him who has mercy you will have mercy; to the upright you will be upright;
26 Com o benigno te mostras benigno, com o varão sincero te mostras sincero.

27 He who is holy will see that you are holy; but to the man whose way is not straight you will be a hard judge.
27 Com o puro te mostras puro, mas com o perverso te mostras avesso.

28 For you are the saviour of those who are in trouble; but your eyes are on men of pride, to make them low.
28 E o povo aflito livras, mas teus olhos são contra os altivos, e tu os abaterás.

29 For you are my light, O Lord; and the Lord will make the dark bright for me.
29 Porque tu, SENHOR, és a minha candeia; e o SENHOR clareia as minhas trevas.

30 By your help I have made a way through the wall which was shutting me in: by the help of my God I have gone over a wall.
30 Porque contigo passo pelo meio de um esquadrão, pelo meu Deus salto um muro.

31 As for God, his way is all good: the word of the Lord is tested; he is a safe cover for all those who put their faith in him.
31 O caminho de Deus é perfeito, e a palavra do SENHOR, refinada; ele é o escudo de todos os que nele confiam.

32 For who is God but the Lord? and who is a Rock but our God?
32 Porque, quem é Deus, senão o SENHOR? E quem é rochedo, senão o nosso Deus?

33 God puts a strong band about me, guiding me in a straight way.
33 Deus é a minha fortaleza e a minha força, e ele perfeitamente desembaraça o meu caminho.

34 He makes my feet like roes’ feet, and puts me on high places.
34 Faz ele os meus pés como os das cervas e me põe sobre as minhas alturas.

35 He makes my hands expert in war, so that a bow of brass is bent by my arms.
35 Instrui as minhas mãos para a peleja, de maneira que um arco de cobre se quebra pelos meus braços.

36 You have given me the breastplate of your salvation, and your mercy has made me great.
36 Também me deste o escudo da tua salvação e, pela tua brandura, me vieste a engrandecer.

37 You have made my steps wide under me, so that my feet make no slip.
37 Alargaste os meus passos debaixo de mim, e não vacilaram os meus artelhos.

38 I go after my haters and overtake them; not turning back till they are all overcome.
38 Persegui os meus inimigos, e os derrotei, e nunca me tornei até que os consumisse.

39 I have sent destruction on them and given them wounds, so that they are not able to get up: they are stretched under my feet.
39 E os consumi e os atravessei, de modo que nunca mais se levantaram, mas caíram debaixo dos meus pés.

40 For I have been armed by you with strength for the fight: you have made low under me those who came out against me.
40 Porque me cingiste de força para a peleja, fizeste abater debaixo de mim os que se levantaram contra mim.

41 By you their backs are turned in flight, so that my haters are cut off.
41 E deste-me o pescoço de meus inimigos, daqueles que me tinham ódio, e os destruí.

42 They were crying out, but there was no one to come to their help: even to the Lord, but he gave them no answer.
42 Olharam, porém, não houve libertador, sim, para o SENHOR, porém não lhes respondeu.

43 Then they were crushed as small as the dust of the earth, stamped down under my feet like the waste of the streets.
43 Então, os moí como o pó da terra; como a lama das ruas os trilhei e dissipei.

44 You have made me free from the fightings of my people; you have made me the head of the nations: a people of whom I had no knowledge will be my servants.
44 Também me livraste das contendas do meu povo; guardaste-me para cabeça das nações; o povo que não conhecia me servirá.

45 Men of other countries will, with false hearts, put themselves under my authority: from the time when my name comes to their ears, they will be ruled by me.
45 Os filhos de estranhos se me sujeitaram; ouvindo a minha voz, me obedeceram.

46 They will be wasted away, they will come out of their secret places shaking with fear.
46 Os filhos de estranhos descaíram; e, cingindo-se, saíram dos seus encerramentos.

47 The Lord is living; praise be to my Rock, and let the God of my salvation be honoured:
47 Vive o SENHOR, e bendito seja o meu rochedo; e exaltado seja Deus, a rocha da minha salvação,

48 It is God who sends punishment on my haters, and puts peoples under my rule.
48 o Deus que me dá inteira vingança e sujeita os povos debaixo de mim,

49 He makes me free from my haters: I am lifted up over those who come up against me: you have made me free from the violent man.
49 e o que me tira dentre os meus inimigos; e tu me exaltas sobre os que contra mim se levantam; do homem violento me livras.

50 Because of this I will give you praise, O Lord, among the nations, and will make a song of praise to your name.
50 Por isso, ó SENHOR, te louvarei entre as nações, e entoarei louvores ao teu nome.

51 Great salvation does he give to his king; he has mercy on the king of his selection, David, and on his seed for ever.
51 Ele é a torre das salvações do seu rei e usa de benignidade com o seu ungido, com Davi e com a sua semente, para sempre.

2 Samuel 23

1 Now these are the last words of David. David, the son of Jesse, says, the man who was lifted up on high, the man on whom the God of Jacob put the holy oil, the loved one of Israel’s songs, says:
1 E estas são as últimas palavras de Davi. Diz Davi, filho de Jessé, e diz o homem que foi levantado em altura, o ungido do Deus de Jacó, e o suave em salmos de Israel:

2 The spirit of the Lord had voice through me, his word was on my tongue.
2 O Espírito do SENHOR falou por mim, e a sua palavra esteve em minha boca.

3 The God of Israel said, the word of the Rock of Israel came to me: When an upright king is ruling over men, when he is ruling in the fear of God,
3 Disse o Deus de Israel, a Rocha de Israel a mim me falou: Haverá um justo que domine sobre os homens, que domine no temor de Deus.

4 It is as the light of the morning, when the sun comes up, a morning without clouds; making young grass come to life from the earth.
4 E será como a luz da manhã, quando sai o sol, da manhã sem nuvens, quando, pelo seu resplendor e pela chuva, a erva brota da terra.

5 For is not my house so with God? For he has made with me an eternal agreement, ordered in all things and certain: as for all my salvation and all my desire, will he not give it increase?
5 Ainda que a minha casa não seja tal para com Deus, contudo estabeleceu comigo um concerto eterno, que em tudo será ordenado e guardado. Pois toda a minha salvação e todo o meu prazer estão nele, apesar de que ainda não o faz brotar.

6 But the evil-doers, all of them, will be like thorns to be pushed away, because they may not be gripped in the hand:
6 Porém os filhos de Belial serão todos como os espinhos que se lançam fora, porque se lhes não pode pegar com a mão.

7 But anyone touching them has to be armed with iron and the rod of a spear; and they will be burned with fire, every one of them.
7 Mas qualquer que os tocar se armará de ferro e da haste de uma lança; e a fogo serão totalmente queimados no mesmo lugar.

8 These are the names of David’s men of war: Ishbaal the Hachmonite, chief of the three; his axe was lifted up against eight hundred put to death at one time.
8 Estes são os nomes dos valentes que Davi teve: Josebe-Bassebete, filho de Taquemoni, o principal dos capitães; este era Adino, o eznita, que se opusera a oitocentos e os feriu de uma vez.

9 After him was Eleazar, the son of Dodai the Ahohite, one of the three great fighters, who was with David in Pas-dammim when the Philistines came together there for the fight; and when the men of Israel had gone in flight,
9 E, depois dele, Eleazar, filho de Dodô, filho de Aoí, entre os três valentes que estavam com Davi, quando provocaram os filisteus que ali se ajuntaram à peleja e quando de Israel os homens subiram,

10 He was with David and went on fighting the Philistines till his hand became tired and stiff from gripping his sword: and that day the Lord gave a great salvation, and the people came back after him only to take the goods of the Philistines.
10 este se levantou e feriu os filisteus, até lhe cansar a mão e ficar a mão pegada à espada; e, naquele dia, o SENHOR operou um grande livramento; e o povo voltou atrás dele somente a tomar o despojo.

11 After him was Shammah, the son of Ela the Hararite. And the Philistines came together in Lehi, where there was a bit of land full of seed; and the people went in flight from the Philistines.
11 E, depois dele, Sama, filho de Agé, o hararita, quando os filisteus se ajuntaram numa multidão, onde havia um pedaço de terra cheio de lentilhas, e o povo fugira de diante dos filisteus.

12 But he kept his place in the middle of the bit of land, and kept back their attack and overcame the Philistines: and the Lord gave a great salvation.
12 Este, pois, se pôs no meio daquele pedaço de terra, e o defendeu, e feriu os filisteus; e o SENHOR operou um grande livramento.

13 And three of the thirty went down at the start of the grain-cutting, and they came to David at the strong place of Adullam; and the band of Philistines had taken up their position in the valley of Rephaim.
13 Também três dos trinta cabeças desceram e vieram no tempo da sega a Davi, à caverna de Adulão; e a multidão dos filisteus acampara no vale dos Refains.

14 And at that time David had taken cover in the strong place, and an armed force of the Philistines was in Beth-lehem.
14 Davi estava, então, num lugar forte, e a guarnição dos filisteus estava, então, em Belém.

15 And David, moved by a strong desire, said, If only someone would give me a drink of water from the water-hole of Beth-lehem, by the doorway into the town!
15 E teve Davi desejo e disse: Quem me dera beber da água da cisterna de Belém que está junto à porta!

16 And the three men, forcing their way through the Philistine army, got water from the water-hole of Beth-lehem, by the doorway into the town, and took it back to David: but he would not take it, but, draining it out, made an offering of it to the Lord.
16 Então, aqueles três valentes romperam pelo arraial dos filisteus, e tiraram água da cisterna de Belém que está junto à porta, e a tomaram, e a trouxeram a Davi; porém ele não a quis beber, mas derramou-a perante o SENHOR.

17 And he said, Far be it from me, O Lord, to do this; how may I take as my drink the life-blood of men who have put their lives in danger? So he would not take it. These things did the three great men of war.
17 E disse: Guarda-me, ó SENHOR, de que tal faça; beberia eu o sangue dos homens que foram a risco da sua vida? De maneira que não a quis beber. Isso fizeram aqueles três valentes.

18 And Abishai, the brother of Joab, the son of Zeruiah, was chief of the thirty. He put to death three hundred with his spear, and he got for himself a name among the thirty.
18 Também Abisai, irmão de Joabe, filho de Zeruia, era cabeça de três; e este alçou a sua lança contra trezentos, e os feriu, e tinha nome entre os três.

19 Was he not the noblest of the thirty? so he was made their captain: but he was not equal to the first three.
19 Porventura, este não era o mais nobre dentre estes três? Pois era o primeiro deles; porém aos primeiros três não chegou.

20 And Benaiah the son of Jehoiada, a fighting man of Kabzeel, had done great acts; he put to death the two sons of Ariel of Moab: he went down into a hole and put a lion to death in time of snow:
20 Também Benaia, filho de Joiada, filho de um homem valoroso de Cabzeel, grande em obras, este feriu dois fortes leões de Moabe; e desceu ele e feriu um leão no meio de uma cova, no tempo da neve.

21 And he made an attack on an Egyptian, a tall man: and the Egyptian had a spear in his hand; but he went down to him with a stick, and pulling the spear out of the hands of the Egyptian, put him to death with that same spear.
21 Também este feriu um homem egípcio, homem de respeito; e na mão do egípcio havia uma lança, porém Benaia desceu a ele com um cajado, e arrancou a lança da mão do egípcio, e o matou com a sua própria lança.

22 These were the acts of Benaiah, the son of Jehoiada, who had a great name among the thirty men of war.
22 Estas coisas fez Benaia, filho de Joiada, pelo que teve nome entre os três valentes.

23 He was honoured over the rest of the thirty, but he was not equal to the first three. And David put him over the fighting men who kept him safe.
23 Dentre os trinta, ele era o mais nobre, porém aos três primeiros não chegou; e Davi o pôs sobre os seus guardas.

24 Asahel, the brother of Joab, was one of the thirty; and Elhanan, the son of Dodai, of Beth-lehem,
24 Asael, irmão de Joabe, estava entre os trinta, que eram: Elanã, filho de Dodô, de Belém;

2 Samuel 24

1 Again the wrath of the Lord was burning against Israel, and moving David against them, he said, Go, take the number of Israel and Judah.
1 E a ira do SENHOR se tornou a acender contra Israel, e ele incitou a Davi contra eles, dizendo: Vai, numera a Israel e a Judá.

2 And the king said to Joab and the captains of the army, who were with him, Go now through all the tribes of Israel, from Dan as far as Beer-sheba, and have all the people numbered, so that I may be certain of the number of the people.
2 Disse, pois, o rei a Joabe, chefe do exército, o qual tinha consigo: Agora, rodeia por todas as tribos de Israel, desde Dã até Berseba, e numera o povo, para que eu saiba o número do povo.

3 And Joab said to the king, Whatever the number of the people, may the Lord make it a hundred times as much, and may the eyes of my lord the king see it: but why does my lord the king take pleasure in doing this thing?
3 Então, disse Joabe ao rei: Ora, multiplique o SENHOR, teu Deus, a este povo cem vezes tanto quanto agora é, e os olhos do rei, meu senhor, o vejam; mas por que deseja o rei, meu senhor, este negócio?

4 But the king’s order was stronger than Joab and the captains of the army. And Joab and the captains of the army went out from the king, to take the number of the children of Israel.
4 Porém a palavra do rei prevaleceu contra Joabe e contra os chefes do exército. Joabe, pois, saiu com os chefes do exército diante da face do rei, a numerar o povo de Israel.

5 And they went over Jordan, and starting from Aroer, from the town which is in the middle of the valley, they went in the direction of the Gadites, and on to Jazer;
5 E passaram o Jordão e puseram-se em campo junto a Aroer, à direita da cidade que está no meio do ribeiro de Gade, e junto a Jazer.

6 Then they came to Gilead, and to the land of the Hittites under Hermon; and they came to Dan, and from Dan they came round to Zidon,
6 E vieram a Gileade e à terra baixa de Cades; também vieram até Dã-Jaã e ao redor de Sidom.

7 And to the walled town of Tyre, and to all the towns of the Hivites and the Canaanites: and they went out to the South of Judah at Beer-sheba.
7 E vieram à fortaleza de Tiro, e a todas as cidades dos heveus e dos cananeus, e saíram para a banda do sul de Judá, a Berseba.

8 So after going through all the land in every direction, they came to Jerusalem at the end of nine months and twenty days.
8 Assim, rodearam por toda a terra e, ao cabo de nove meses e vinte dias, voltaram a Jerusalém.

9 And Joab gave the king the number of all the people: there were in Israel eight hundred thousand fighting men able to take up arms; and the men of Judah were five hundred thousand.
9 E Joabe deu ao rei a soma do número do povo contado: havia em Israel oitocentos mil homens de guerra, que arrancavam espada; e os homens de Judá eram quinhentos mil homens.

10 And after the people had been numbered, David’s heart was troubled. And David said to the Lord, Great has been my sin in doing this; but now, O Lord, be pleased to take away the sin of your servant, for I have done very foolishly
10 E o coração doeu a Davi, depois de haver numerado o povo, e disse Davi ao SENHOR: Muito pequei no que fiz; porém agora, ó SENHOR, peço-te que traspasses a iniqüidade do teu servo; porque tenho procedido mui loucamente.

11 And David got up in the morning; now the word of the Lord had come to the prophet Gad, David’s seer, saying,
11 Levantando-se, pois, Davi pela manhã, veio a palavra do SENHOR ao profeta Gade, vidente de Davi, dizendo:

12 Go and say to David, The Lord says, Three things are offered to you: say which of them you will have, and I will do it to you.
12 Vai e dize a Davi: Assim diz o SENHOR: três coisas te ofereço; escolhe uma delas, para que ta faça.

13 So Gad came to David, and gave him word of this and said to him, Are there to be three years when there is not enough food in your land? or will you go in flight from your haters for three months, while they go after you? or will you have three days of violent disease in your land? take thought and say what answer I am to give to him who sent me.
13 Veio, pois, Gade a Davi e fez-lho saber; e disse-lhe: Queres que sete anos de fome te venham à tua terra; ou que por três meses fujas diante de teus inimigos, e eles te persigam; ou que por três dias haja peste na tua terra? Delibera, agora, e vê que resposta hei de dar ao que me enviou.

14 And David said to Gad, This is a hard decision for me to make: let us come into the hands of the Lord, for great are his mercies: let me not come into the hands of men.
14 Então, disse Davi a Gade: Estou em grande angústia; porém caiamos nas mãos do SENHOR, porque muitas são as suas misericórdias; mas nas mãos dos homens não caia eu.

15 So David made selection of the disease; and the time was the days of the grain-cutting, when the disease came among the people, causing the death of seventy thousand men from Dan as far as Beer-sheba.
15 Então, enviou o SENHOR a peste a Israel, desde pela manhã até ao tempo determinado; e, desde Dã até Berseba, morreram setenta mil homens do povo.

16 And when the hand of the angel was stretched out in the direction of Jerusalem, for its destruction, the Lord had regret for the evil, and said to the angel who was sending destruction on the people, It is enough; do no more. And the angel of the Lord was by the grain-floor of Araunah the Jebusite.
16 Estendendo, pois, o Anjo a sua mão sobre Jerusalém, para a destruir, o SENHOR se arrependeu daquele mal; e disse ao Anjo que fazia a destruição entre o povo: Basta, agora retira a tua mão. E o Anjo do SENHOR estava junto à eira de Araúna, o jebuseu.

17 And when David saw the angel who was causing the destruction of the people, he said to the Lord, Truly, the sin is mine; I have done wrong: but these are only sheep; what have they done? let your hand be against me and against my family.
17 E, vendo Davi ao Anjo que feria o povo, falou ao SENHOR e disse: Eis que eu sou o que pequei e eu o que iniquamente procedi; porém estas ovelhas que fizeram? Seja, pois, a tua mão contra mim e contra a casa de meu pai.

18 And that day Gad came to David and said to him, Go up, and put up an altar to the Lord on the grain-floor of Araunah the Jebusite.
18 E Gade veio, naquele mesmo dia, a Davi e disse-lhe: Sobe, levanta ao SENHOR um altar na eira de Araúna, o jebuseu.

19 So David went up, as Gad had said and as the Lord had given orders.
19 Davi subiu conforme a palavra de Gade, como o SENHOR lhe tinha ordenado.

20 And Araunah, looking out, saw the king and his servants coming to him: and Araunah went out, and went down on his face to the earth before the king.
20 E olhou Araúna e viu que vinham para ele o rei e os seus servos; saiu, pois, Araúna, e inclinou-se diante do rei com o rosto em terra.

21 And Araunah said, Why has my lord the king come to his servant? And David said, To give you a price for your grain-floor, so that I may put up an altar to the Lord, and the disease may be stopped among the people.
21 E disse Araúna: Por que vem o rei, meu senhor, ao seu servo? E disse Davi: Para comprar de ti esta eira, a fim de edificar nela um altar ao SENHOR, para que este castigo cesse de sobre o povo.

22 And Araunah said to David, Let my lord the king take whatever seems right to him, and make an offering of it: see, here are the oxen for the burned offering, and the grain-cleaning instruments and the ox-yokes for wood:
22 Então, disse Araúna a Davi: Tome e ofereça o rei, meu senhor, o que bem parecer aos seus olhos; eis aí bois para o holocausto, e os trilhos, e o aparelho dos bois para a lenha.

23 All this does the servant of my lord the king give to the king. And Araunah said, May the Lord your God be pleased with your offering!
23 Tudo isso deu Araúna ao rei; disse mais Araúna ao rei: O SENHOR, teu Deus, tome prazer em ti.

24 And the king said to Araunah, No, but I will give you a price for it; I will not give to the Lord my God burned offerings for which I have given nothing. So David got the grain-floor and the oxen for fifty shekels of silver.
24 Porém o rei disse a Araúna: Não, porém por certo preço to comprarei, porque não oferecerei ao SENHOR, meu Deus, holocaustos que me não custem nada. Assim, Davi comprou a eira e os bois por cinqüenta siclos de prata.

25 And there David put up an altar to the Lord, making burned offerings and peace-offerings. So the Lord gave ear to his prayer for the land, and the disease came to an end in Israel.
25 E edificou ali Davi ao SENHOR um altar e ofereceu holocaustos e ofertas pacíficas. Assim, o SENHOR se aplacou para com a terra e cessou aquele castigo de sobre Israel.
