Judges 1

1 Now after the death of Joshua, the children of Israel made request to the Lord, saying, Who is to go up first to make war for us against the Canaanites?
1 E sucedeu, depois da morte de Josué, que os filhos de Israel perguntaram ao SENHOR, dizendo: Quem dentre nós primeiro subirá aos cananeus, para pelejar contra eles?

2 And the Lord said, Judah is to go up: see, I have given the land into his hands.
2 E disse o SENHOR: Judá subirá; eis que lhe dei esta terra na sua mão.

3 Then Judah said to Simeon his brother, Come up with me into my heritage, so that we may make war against the Canaanites; and I will then go with you into your heritage. So Simeon went with him.
3 Então, disse Judá a Simeão, seu irmão: Sobe comigo à herdade que me caiu por sorte, e pelejemos contra os cananeus, e também eu contigo subirei à tua, que te caiu por sorte. E Simeão partiu com ele.

4 And Judah went up; and the Lord gave the Canaanites and the Perizzites into their hands; and they overcame ten thousand of them in Bezek.
4 E subiu Judá, e o SENHOR lhe deu na sua mão os cananeus e os ferezeus; e feriram deles em Bezeque a dez mil homens.

5 And they came across Adoni-zedek, and made war on him; and they overcame the Canaanites and the Perizzites.
5 E acharam a Adoni-Bezeque em Bezeque, e pelejaram contra ele, e feriram aos cananeus e aos ferezeus.

6 But Adoni-zedek went in flight; and they went after him and overtook him, and had his thumbs and his great toes cut off.
6 Porém Adoni-Bezeque fugiu; e o seguiram, e o prenderam, e lhe cortaram os dedos polegares das mãos e dos pés.

7 And Adoni-zedek said, Seventy kings, whose thumbs and great toes had been cut off, got broken meat under my table: as I have done, so has God done to me in full. And they took him to Jerusalem, and he came to his end there.
7 Então, disse Adoni-Bezeque: Setenta reis, com os dedos polegares das mãos e dos pés cortados, apanhavam as migalhas debaixo da minha mesa; assim como eu fiz, assim Deus me pagou. E o trouxeram a Jerusalém, e morreu ali.

8 Then the children of Judah made an attack on Jerusalem, and took it, burning down the town after they had put its people to the sword without mercy.
8 Porque os filhos de Judá pelejaram contra Jerusalém, e a tomaram, e a feriram a fio de espada, e à cidade puseram a fogo.

9 After that the children of Judah went down to make war on the Canaanites living in the hill-country and in the south and in the lowlands.
9 E, depois, os filhos de Judá desceram a pelejar contra os cananeus que habitavam nas montanhas, e no sul, e nas planícies.

10 And Caleb went against the Canaanites of Hebron: (now in earlier times Hebron was named Kiriath-arba:) and he put Sheshai and Ahiman and Talmai to the sword.
10 E partiu Judá contra os cananeus que habitavam em Hebrom (era, porém, dantes, o nome de Hebrom Quiriate-Arba), e feriram a Sesai, e a Aimã, e a Talmai.

11 And from there he went up against the people of Debir. (Now the name of Debir in earlier times was Kiriath-sepher.)
11 E, dali, partiu contra os moradores de Debir (e era, dantes, o nome de Debir Quiriate-Sefer).

12 And Caleb said, I will give Achsah, my daughter, as wife to the man who overcomes Kiriath-sepher and takes it.
12 E disse Calebe: Quem ferir a Quiriate-Sefer e a tomar, lhe darei a minha filha Acsa por mulher.

13 And Othniel, the son of Kenaz, Caleb’s younger brother, took it; so he gave him his daughter Achsah for his wife.
13 E tomou-a Otniel, filho de Quenaz, o irmão de Calebe, mais novo do que ele; e Calebe lhe deu a sua filha Acsa por mulher.

14 Now when she came to him, he put into her mind the idea of requesting a field from her father: and she got down from her ass; and Caleb said to her, What is it?
14 E sucedeu que, vindo ela a ele, o persuadiu a que pedisse um campo a seu pai; e ela se apeou do jumento, saltando; e Calebe lhe disse: Que é o que tens?

15 And she said to him, Give me a blessing; because you have put me in a dry south-land, now give me springs of water. So Caleb gave her the higher spring and the lower spring.
15 E ela lhe disse: Dá-me uma bênção, pois me deste uma terra seca; dá-me também fontes de águas. E Calebe lhe deu as fontes superiores e as fontes inferiores.

16 Now Hobab the Kenite, Moses’ father-in-law, had come up out of the town of palm-trees, with the children of Judah, into the waste land of Arad; and he went and was living among the Amalekites;
16 Também os filhos do queneu, sogro de Moisés, subiram da cidade das Palmeiras com os filhos de Judá ao deserto de Judá, que está ao sul de Arade; e foram e habitaram com o povo.

17 And Judah went with Simeon, his brother, and overcame the Canaanites living in Zephath, and put it under the curse; and he gave the town the name of Hormah.
17 Foi-se, pois, Judá com Simeão, seu irmão, e feriram aos cananeus que habitavam em Zefate, e totalmente a destruíram, e chamaram o nome desta cidade Horma.

18 Then Judah took Gaza and its limit, and Ashkelon and its limit, and Ekron and its limit.
18 Tomou mais Judá a Gaza com o seu termo, e a Asquelom com o seu termo, e a Ecrom com o seu termo.

19 And the Lord was with Judah; and he took the hill-country for his heritage; but he was unable to make the people of the valley go out, for they had war-carriages of iron.
19 E foi o SENHOR com Judá, e despovoou as montanhas; porém não expeliu os moradores do vale, porquanto tinham carros de ferro.

20 And they gave Hebron to Caleb, as Moses had said; and he took the land of the three sons of Anak, driving them out from there.
20 E deram Hebrom a Calebe, como Moisés o dissera, e dali expeliu os três filhos de Anaque.

21 And the children of Judah did not make the Jebusites who were living in Jerusalem go out; the Jebusites are still living with the children of Benjamin in Jerusalem.
21 Porém os filhos de Benjamim não expeliram os jebuseus que habitavam em Jerusalém; antes, os jebuseus habitaram com os filhos de Benjamim em Jerusalém até ao dia de hoje.

22 And the family of Joseph went up against Beth-el, and the Lord was with them.
22 E subiu também a casa de José a Betel, e foi o SENHOR com eles.

23 So they sent men to make a search round Beth-el. (Now the name of the town in earlier times was Luz.)
23 E fez a casa de José espiar a Betel (e foi dantes o nome desta cidade Luz).

24 And the watchers saw a man coming out of the town, and said to him, If you will make clear to us the way into the town, we will be kind to you.
24 E viram os espias um homem que saía da cidade e lhe disseram: Ora, mostra-nos a entrada da cidade, e usaremos contigo de beneficência.

25 So he made clear to them the way into the town, and they put it to the sword; but they let the man and all his family get away safe.
25 E, mostrando-lhes ele a entrada da cidade, feriram a cidade a fio de espada; porém àquele homem e a toda a sua família deixaram ir.

26 And he went into the land of the Hittites, building a town there and naming it Luz: which is its name to this day.
26 Então, aquele homem foi-se à terra dos heteus, e edificou uma cidade, e chamou o seu nome Luz; este é o seu nome até o dia de hoje.

27 And Manasseh did not take away the land of the people of Beth-shean and its daughter-towns, or of Taanach and its daughter-towns, or of the people of Dor and its daughter-towns, or of the people of Ibleam and its daughter-towns, or of the people of Megiddo and its daughter-towns, driving them out; but the Canaanites would go on living in that land.
27 Nem Manassés expeliu os habitantes de Bete-Seã, nem dos lugares da sua jurisdição; nem a Taanaque, com os lugares da sua jurisdição; nem aos moradores de Dor, com os lugares da sua jurisdição; nem aos moradores de Ibleão, com os lugares da sua jurisdição; nem aos moradores de Megido, com os lugares da sua jurisdição; e quiseram os cananeus habitar na mesma terra.

28 And whenever Israel became strong, they put the Canaanites to forced work, without driving them out completely.
28 E sucedeu que, quando Israel cobrou mais forças, fez dos cananeus tributários, porém não os expeliu de todo.

29 And Ephraim did not make the Canaanites who were living in Gezer go out; but the Canaanites went on living in Gezer among them.
29 Tampouco expeliu Efraim os cananeus que habitavam em Gezer; antes, os cananeus habitavam no meio dele, em Gezer.

30 Zebulun did not make the people of Kitron or the people of Nahalol go out; but the Canaanites went on living among them and were put to forced work.
30 Tampouco expeliu Zebulom os moradores de Quitrom, nem aos moradores de Naalol; porém os cananeus habitavam no meio dele e foram tributários.

31 And Asher did not take the land of the people of Acco, or Zidon, or Ahlab, or Achzib, or Helbah, or Aphik, or Rehob, driving them out;
31 Tampouco Aser expeliu os moradores de Aco, nem os moradores de Sidom, nem Alabe, nem Aczibe, nem Helba, nem Afeca, nem Reobe;

32 But the Asherites went on living among the Canaanites, the people of the land, without driving them out.
32 porém os aseritas habitaram no meio dos cananeus que habitavam na terra; porquanto os não expeliram.

33 Naphtali did not take the land of the people of Beth-shemesh or of Beth-anath, driving them out; but he was living among the Canaanites in the land; however, the people of Beth-shemesh and Beth-anath were put to forced work.
33 Tampouco Naftali expeliu os moradores de Bete-Semes, nem os moradores de Bete-Anate; mas habitou no meio dos cananeus que habitavam na terra; porém lhes foram tributários os moradores de Bete-Semes e os de Bete-Anate.

34 And the children of Dan were forced into the hill-country by the Amorites, who would not let them come down into the valley;
34 E apertaram os amorreus aos filhos de Dã até às montanhas; porque nem os deixavam descer ao vale.

35 For the Amorites would go on living in Mount Heres, in Aijalon, and in Shaalbim; but the children of Joseph became stronger than they, and put them to forced work.
35 Também os amorreus quiseram habitar nas montanhas de Heres, em Aijalom e em Saalabim; porém prevaleceu a mão da casa de José, e ficaram tributários.

36 And the limit of the Edomites went from the slope of Akrabbim from Sela and up.
36 E foi o termo dos amorreus desde a subida de Acrabim, e desde a penha, e dali para cima.

Judges 2

1 Now the angel of the Lord came up from Gilgal to Bochim. And he said, ***I took you out of Egypt, guiding you into the land which I gave by an oath to your fathers; and I said, My agreement with you will never be broken by me:
1 E subiu o Anjo do SENHOR de Gilgal a Boquim e disse: Do Egito vos fiz subir, e vos trouxe à terra que a vossos pais tinha jurado, e disse: Nunca invalidarei o meu concerto convosco.

2 And you are to make no agreement with the people of this land; you are to see that their altars are broken down: but you have not given ear to my voice: what have you done?
2 E, quanto a vós, não fareis concerto com os moradores desta terra; antes, derrubareis os seus altares. Mas vós não obedecestes à minha voz. Por que fizestes isso?

3 And so I have said, I will not send them out from before you; but they will be a danger to you, and their gods will be a cause of falling to you.
3 Pelo que também eu disse: Não os expelirei de diante de vós; antes, estarão às vossas costas, e os seus deuses vos serão por laço.

4 Now on hearing these words which the angel of the Lord said to all the children of Israel, the people gave themselves up to loud crying and weeping.
4 E sucedeu que, falando o Anjo do SENHOR estas palavras a todos os filhos de Israel, o povo levantou a sua voz e chorou.

5 And they gave that place the name of Bochim, and made offerings there to the Lord.
5 Pelo que chamaram àquele lugar Boquim; e sacrificaram ali ao SENHOR.

6 And Joshua let the people go away, and the children of Israel went, every man to his heritage, to take the land for themselves.
6 E, havendo Josué despedido o povo, foram-se os filhos de Israel, cada um à sua herdade, para possuírem a terra.

7 And the people were true to the Lord all the days of Joshua, and all the days of the responsible men who were still living after the death of Joshua, and had seen all the great work of the Lord which he had done for Israel.
7 E serviu o povo ao SENHOR todos os dias de Josué e todos os dias dos anciãos que prolongaram os seus dias depois de Josué e viram toda aquela grande obra do SENHOR, a qual ele fizera a Israel.

8 And death came to Joshua, the son of Nun, the servant of the Lord, he being a hundred and ten years old.
8 Faleceu, porém, Josué, filho de Num, servo do SENHOR, da idade de cento e dez anos.

9 And they put his body in the earth in the land of his heritage in Timnath-heres, in the hill-country of Ephraim to the north of Mount Gaash.
9 E sepultaram-no no termo da sua herdade, em Timnate-Heres, no monte de Efraim, para o norte do monte Gaás.

10 And in time death overtook all that generation; and another generation came after them, having no knowledge of the Lord or of the things which he had done for Israel.
10 E foi também congregada toda aquela geração a seus pais, e outra geração após eles se levantou, que não conhecia o SENHOR, nem tampouco a obra que fizera a Israel.

11 And the children of Israel did evil in the eyes of the Lord and became servants to the Baals;
11 Então, fizeram os filhos de Israel o que parecia mal aos olhos do SENHOR; e serviram aos baalins.

12 And they gave up the Lord, the God of their fathers, who had taken them out of the land of Egypt, and went after other gods, the gods of the peoples round about them, worshipping them and moving the Lord to wrath.
12 E deixaram o SENHOR, Deus de seus pais, que os tirara da terra do Egito, e foram-se após outros deuses, dentre os deuses das gentes que havia ao redor deles, e encurvaram-se a eles, e provocaram o SENHOR à ira.

13 And they gave up the Lord, and became the servants of Baal and the Astartes.
13 Porquanto deixaram ao SENHOR e serviram a Baal e a Astarote.

14 And the wrath of the Lord was burning against Israel, and he gave them up into the hands of those who violently took their property, and into the hands of their haters all round them, so that they were forced to give way before them.
14 Pelo que a ira do SENHOR se acendeu contra Israel, e os deu na mão dos roubadores, e os roubaram; e os entregou na mão dos seus inimigos ao redor; e não puderam mais estar em pé diante dos seus inimigos.

15 Wherever they went out, the hand of the Lord was against them for evil, as the Lord had taken his oath it would be; and things became very hard for them.
15 Por onde quer que saíam, a mão do SENHOR era contra eles para mal, como o SENHOR tinha dito e como o SENHOR lho tinha jurado; e estavam em grande aperto.

16 Then the Lord gave them judges, as their saviours from the hands of those who were cruel to them.
16 E levantou o SENHOR juízes, que os livraram da mão dos que os roubaram.

17 But still they would not give ear to their judges, but went after other gods and gave them worship; quickly turning from the way in which their fathers had gone, keeping the orders of the Lord; but they did not do so.
17 Porém tampouco ouviram aos juízes; antes, se prostituíram após outros deuses e encurvaram-se a eles; depressa se desviaram do caminho por onde andaram seus pais ouvindo os mandamentos do SENHOR; mas eles não fizeram assim.

18 And whenever the Lord gave them judges, then the Lord was with the judge, and was their saviour from the hands of their haters all the days of the judge; for the Lord was moved by their cries of grief because of those who were cruel to them.
18 E, quando o SENHOR lhes levantava juízes, o SENHOR era com o juiz e os livrava da mão dos seus inimigos, todos os dias daquele juiz; porquanto o SENHOR se arrependia pelo seu gemido, por causa dos que os apertavam e oprimiam.

19 But whenever the judge was dead, they went back and did more evil than their fathers, going after other gods, to be their servants and their worshippers; giving up nothing of their sins and their hard-hearted ways.
19 Porém sucedia que, falecendo o juiz, tornavam e se corrompiam mais do que seus pais, andando após outros deuses, servindo-os e encurvando-se a eles; nada deixavam das suas obras, nem do seu duro caminho.

20 And the wrath of the Lord was burning against Israel, and he said, Because this nation has not been true to my agreement which I made with their fathers, and has not given ear to my voice;
20 Pelo que a ira do SENHOR se acendeu contra Israel; e disse: Porquanto este povo traspassou o meu concerto que tinha ordenado a seus pais e não deu ouvidos à minha voz.

21 From now on I will not go on driving out from before them any of the nations which at the death of Joshua were still living in this land;
21 Tampouco desapossarei mais de diante deles a nenhuma das nações que Josué deixou, morrendo;

22 In order to put Israel to the test, and see if they will keep the way of the Lord, walking in it as their fathers did, or not.
22 para por elas provar a Israel, se hão de guardar o caminho do SENHOR, como seus pais o guardaram, para por ele andarem ou não.

23 So the Lord let those nations go on living in the land, not driving them out quickly, and did not give them up into the hands of Joshua.
23 Assim, o SENHOR deixou ficar aquelas nações e não as desterrou logo, nem as entregou na mão de Josué.

Judges 3

1 Now these are the nations which the Lord kept in the land for the purpose of testing Israel by them, all those who had had no experience of all the wars of Canaan;
1 Estas, pois, são as nações que o SENHOR deixou ficar, para por elas provar a Israel, a saber, a todos os que não sabiam de todas as guerras de Canaã.

2 Only because of the generations of the children of Israel, for the purpose of teaching them war—only those who up till then had no experience of it;
2 Isso tão-somente para que as gerações dos filhos de Israel delas soubessem (para lhes ensinar a guerra), pelo menos as gerações que, dantes, não sabiam disso:

3 The five chiefs of the Philistines, and all the Canaanites and the Zidonians and the Hivites living in Mount Lebanon, from the mountain Baal-hermon as far as Hamath:
3 cinco príncipes dos filisteus, e todos os cananeus, e sidônios, e heveus, que habitavam nas montanhas do Líbano, desde o monte de Baal-Hermom até à entrada de Hamate.

4 For the purpose of testing Israel by them, to see if they would give ear to the orders of the Lord, which he had given to their fathers by the hand of Moses.
4 Estes, pois, ficaram, para por eles o SENHOR provar a Israel, para saber se dariam ouvidos aos seus mandamentos que tinha ordenado a seus pais pelo ministério de Moisés.

5 Now the children of Israel were living among the Canaanites, the Hittites, and the Amorites, and the Perizzites, and the Hivites, and the Jebusites:
5 Habitando, pois, os filhos de Israel no meio dos cananeus, e heteus, e amorreus, e ferezeus, e heveus, e jebuseus,

6 And they took as wives the daughters of these nations and gave their daughters to their sons, and became servants to their gods.
6 tomaram de suas filhas para si por mulheres e deram aos filhos deles as suas filhas; e serviram a seus deuses.

7 And the children of Israel did evil in the eyes of the Lord, and put out of their minds the Lord their God, and became servants to the Baals and the Astartes.
7 E os filhos de Israel fizeram o que parecia mal aos olhos do SENHOR, e se esqueceram do SENHOR, seu Deus, e serviram aos baalins e a Astarote.

8 So the wrath of the Lord was burning against Israel, and he gave them up into the hands of Cushan-rishathaim, king of Mesopotamia; and the children of Israel were his servants for eight years.
8 Então, a ira do SENHOR se acendeu contra Israel, e ele os vendeu em mão de Cusã-Risataim, rei da Mesopotâmia; e os filhos de Israel serviram a Cusã-Risataim durante oito anos.

9 And when the children of Israel made prayer to the Lord, he gave them a saviour, Othniel, the son of Kenaz, Caleb’s younger brother.
9 E os filhos de Israel clamaram ao SENHOR, e o SENHOR levantou aos filhos de Israel um libertador, e os libertou: Otniel, filho de Quenaz, irmão de Calebe, mais novo do que ele.

10 And the spirit of the Lord came on him and he became judge of Israel, and went out to war, and the Lord gave up Cushan-rishathaim, king of Mesopotamia, into his hands and he overcame him.
10 E veio sobre ele o Espírito do SENHOR, e julgou a Israel e saiu à peleja; e o SENHOR deu na sua mão a Cusã-Risataim, rei da Síria; e a sua mão prevaleceu contra Cusã-Risataim.

11 Then for forty years the land had peace, till the death of Othniel, the son of Kenaz.
11 Então, a terra sossegou quarenta anos; e Otniel, filho de Quenaz, faleceu.

12 Then the children of Israel again did evil in the eyes of the Lord; and the Lord made Eglon, king of Moab, strong against Israel, because they had done evil in the Lord’s eyes.
12 Porém os filhos de Israel tornaram a fazer o que parecia mal aos olhos do SENHOR; então, o SENHOR esforçou a Eglom, rei dos moabitas, contra Israel, porquanto fizeram o que parecia mal aos olhos do SENHOR.

13 And Eglon got together the people of Ammon and Amalek, and they went and overcame Israel and took the town of palm-trees.
13 E ajuntou consigo os filhos de Amom e os amalequitas, e foi, e feriu a Israel, e tomaram a cidade das Palmeiras.

14 And the children of Israel were servants to Eglon, king of Moab, for eighteen years.
14 E os filhos de Israel serviram a Eglom, rei dos moabitas, dezoito anos.

15 Then when the children of Israel made prayer to the Lord, he gave them a saviour, Ehud, the son of Gera, the Benjamite, a left-handed man; and the children of Israel sent an offering by him to Eglon, king of Moab.
15 Então, os filhos de Israel clamaram ao SENHOR, e o SENHOR lhes levantou um libertador: Eúde, filho de Gera, benjamita, homem canhoto. E os filhos de Israel enviaram pela sua mão um presente a Eglom, rei dos moabitas.

16 So Ehud made himself a two-edged sword, a cubit long, which he put on at his right side under his robe.
16 E Eúde fez uma espada de dois fios, do comprimento de um côvado, e cingiu-a por debaixo das suas vestes, à sua coxa direita.

17 And he took the offering to Eglon, king of Moab, who was a very fat man.
17 E levou aquele presente a Eglom, rei dos moabitas; e era Eglom homem mui gordo.

18 And after giving the offering, he sent away the people who had come with the offering.
18 E sucedeu que, acabando de entregar o presente, despediu a gente que trouxera o presente.

19 But he himself, turning back from the stone images at Gilgal, said, I have something to say to you in secret, O king. And he said, Let there be quiet. Then all those who were waiting before him went out.
19 Porém voltou do ponto em que estão as imagens de escultura, ao pé de Gilgal, e disse: Tenho uma palavra secreta para ti, ó rei. Este disse: Cala-te. E todos os que lhe assistiam saíram de diante dele.

20 Then Ehud came in to him while he was seated by himself in his summer-house. And Ehud said, I have a word from God for you. And he got up from his seat.
20 E Eúde entrou num cenáculo fresco, que o rei tinha para si só, onde estava assentado, e disse Eúde: Tenho para ti uma palavra de Deus. E levantou-se da cadeira.

21 And Ehud put out his left hand, and took the sword from his right side, and sent it into his stomach;
21 Então, Eúde estendeu a sua mão esquerda, e lançou mão da espada da sua coxa direita, e lha cravou no ventre,

22 And the hand-part went in after the blade, and the fat was joined up over the blade; for he did not take the sword out of his stomach. And he went out into the…
22 de tal maneira que entrou até à empunhadura após a folha, e a gordura encerrou a folha (porque não tirou a espada do ventre); e saiu-lhe o excremento.

23 Then Ehud went out into the covered way, shutting the doors of the summer-house on him and locking them.
23 Então, Eúde saiu à sala, e cerrou sobre ele as portas do cenáculo, e as fechou.

24 Now when he had gone, the king’s servants came, and saw that the doors of the summer-house were locked; and they said, It may be that he is in his summer-house for a private purpose.
24 E, saindo ele, vieram os seus servos e viram, e eis que as portas do cenáculo estavam fechadas; e disseram: Sem dúvida está cobrindo seus pés na recâmara do cenáculo fresco.

25 And they went on waiting till they were shamed, but the doors were still shut; so they took the key, and, opening them, saw their lord stretched out dead on the floor.
25 E, esperando até se enfastiarem, eis que não abriu as portas do cenáculo; então, tomaram a chave e abriram, e eis seu senhor estendido morto em terra.

26 But Ehud had got away while they were waiting and had gone past the stone images and got away to Seirah.
26 E Eúde escapou enquanto eles se demoraram; porque ele passou pelas imagens de escultura e escapou para Seirá.

27 And when he came there, he had a horn sounded in the hill-country of Ephraim, and all the children of Israel went down with him from the hill-country, and he at their head.
27 E sucedeu que, entrando ele, tocou a buzina nas montanhas de Efraim; e os filhos de Israel desceram com ele das montanhas, e ele adiante deles.

28 And he said to them, Come after me; for the Lord has given the Moabites, your haters, into your hands. So they went down after him and took the crossing-places of Jordan against Moab, and let no one go across.
28 E disse-lhes: Segui-me, porque o SENHOR vos tem dado a vossos inimigos, os moabitas, na vossa mão; e desceram após ele, e tomaram os vaus do Jordão a Moabe, e a nenhum deixaram passar.

29 At that time they put about ten thousand men of Moab to the sword, every strong man and every man of war; not a man got away.
29 E, naquele tempo, feriram dos moabitas uns dez mil homens, todos corpulentos e todos homens valorosos; e não escapou nenhum.

30 So Moab was broken that day under the hand of Israel. And for eighty years the land had peace.
30 Assim foi subjugado Moabe, naquele dia, debaixo da mão de Israel; e a terra sossegou oitenta anos.

31 And after him came Shamgar, the son of Anath, who put to death six hundred Philistines with an ox-stick; and he was another saviour of Israel.
31 Depois dele, foi Sangar, filho de Anate, que feriu seiscentos homens dos filisteus com uma aguilhada de bois; e também ele libertou a Israel.

Judges 4

1 And the children of Israel again did evil in the eyes of the Lord when Ehud was dead.
1 Porém os filhos de Israel tornaram a fazer o que parecia mal aos olhos do SENHOR, depois de falecer Eúde.

2 And the Lord gave them up into the hands of Jabin, king of Canaan, who was ruling in Hazor; the captain of his army was Sisera, who was living in Harosheth of the Gentiles.
2 E vendeu-os o SENHOR em mão de Jabim, rei de Canaã, que reinava em Hazor; e Sísera era o capitão do seu exército, o qual, então, habitava em Harosete-Hagoim.

3 Then the children of Israel made prayer to the Lord; for he had nine hundred iron war-carriages, and for twenty years he was very cruel to the children of Israel.
3 Então, os filhos de Israel clamaram ao SENHOR, porquanto Jabim tinha novecentos carros de ferro e por vinte anos oprimia os filhos de Israel violentamente.

4 Now Deborah, a woman prophet, the wife of Lapidoth, was judge of Israel at that time.
4 E Débora, mulher profetisa, mulher de Lapidote, julgava a Israel naquele tempo.

5 (And she had her seat under the palm-tree of Deborah between Ramah and Beth-el in the hill-country of Ephraim; and the children of Israel came up to her to be judged.)
5 E habitava debaixo das palmeiras de Débora, entre Ramá e Betel, nas montanhas de Efraim; e os filhos de Israel subiam a ela a juízo.

6 And she sent for Barak, the son of Abinoam, from Kedesh-naphtali, and said to him, Has not the Lord, the God of Israel, given orders saying, Go and get your force into line in Mount Tabor, and take with you ten thousand men of the children of Naphtali and of the children of Zebulun?
6 E enviou, e chamou a Baraque, filho de Abinoão, de Quedes de Naftali, e disse-lhe: Porventura o SENHOR, Deus de Israel, não deu ordem, dizendo: Vai, e atrai gente ao monte de Tabor, e toma contigo dez mil homens dos filhos de Naftali e dos filhos de Zebulom?

7 And I will make Sisera, the captain of Jabin’s army, with his war-carriages and his forces, come against you at the river Kishon, where I will give him into your hands.
7 E atrairei a ti para o ribeiro de Quisom a Sísera, capitão do exército de Jabim, com os seus carros e com a sua multidão, e o darei na tua mão.

8 And Barak said to her, If you will go with me then I will go; but if you will not go with me I will not go.
8 Então, lhe disse Baraque: Se fores comigo, irei; porém, se não fores comigo, não irei.

9 And she said, I will certainly go with you: though you will get no honour in your undertaking, for the Lord will give Sisera into the hands of a woman. So Deborah got up and went with Barak to Kedesh.
9 E disse ela: Certamente irei contigo, porém não será tua a honra pelo caminho que levas; pois à mão de uma mulher o SENHOR venderá a Sísera. E Débora se levantou e partiu com Baraque para Quedes.

10 Then Barak sent for Zebulun and Naphtali to come to Kedesh; and ten thousand men went up after him, and Deborah went up with him.
10 Então, Baraque convocou a Zebulom e a Naftali em Quedes e subiu com dez mil homens após si; e Débora subiu com ele.

11 Now Heber the Kenite, separating himself from the rest of the Kenites, from the children of Hobab, the brother-in-law of Moses, had put up his tent as far away as the oak-tree in Zaanannim, by Kedesh.
11 E Héber, queneu, se tinha apartado dos queneus dos filhos de Hobabe, sogro de Moisés, e tinha estendido as suas tendas até ao carvalho de Zaananim, que está junto a Quedes.

12 And word was given to Sisera that Barak, the son of Abinoam, had gone up to Mount Tabor.
12 E anunciaram a Sísera que Baraque, filho de Abinoão, tinha subido ao monte Tabor.

13 So Sisera got together all his war-carriages, nine hundred war-carriages of iron, and all the people who were with him, from Harosheth of the Gentiles as far as the river Kishon.
13 E Sísera convocou todos os seus carros, novecentos carros de ferro, e todo o povo que estava com ele, desde Harosete-Hagoim até ao ribeiro de Quisom.

14 Then Deborah said to Barak, Up! for today the Lord has given Sisera into your hands: has not the Lord gone out before you? So Barak went down from Mount Tabor and ten thousand men after him.
14 Então, disse Débora a Baraque: Levanta-te, porque este é o dia em que o SENHOR tem dado a Sísera na tua mão; porventura, o SENHOR não saiu diante de ti? Baraque, pois, desceu do monte Tabor, e dez mil homens após ele.

15 And the Lord sent fear on Sisera and all his war-carriages and all his army before Barak; and Sisera got down from his war-carriage and went in flight on foot.
15 E o SENHOR derrotou a Sísera, e todos os seus carros, e todo o seu exército a fio de espada, diante de Baraque; e Sísera desceu do carro e fugiu a pé.

16 But Barak went after the war-carriages and the army as far as Harosheth of the Gentiles; and all Sisera’s army was put to the sword; not a man got away.
16 E Baraque os seguiu após os carros e após o exército, até Harosete-Hagoim, e todo o exército de Sísera caiu a fio de espada, até não ficar um só.

17 But Sisera went in flight on foot to the tent of Jael, the wife of Heber the Kenite; for there was peace between Jabin, king of Hazor, and the family of Heber the Kenite.
17 Porém Sísera fugiu a pé para a tenda de Jael, mulher de Héber, queneu, porquanto havia paz entre Jabim, rei de Hazor, e a casa de Héber, queneu.

18 And Jael went out to Sisera, and said to him, Come in, my lord, come in to me without fear. So he went into her tent, and she put a cover over him.
18 E Jael saiu ao encontro de Sísera e disse-lhe: Retira-te, senhor meu, retira-te para mim, não temas. Retirou-se para a sua tenda, e ela cobriu-o com uma coberta.

19 Then he said to her, Give me now a little water, for I have need of a drink. And opening a skin of milk, she gave him drink, and put the cover over him again.
19 Então, ele lhe disse: Dá-me, peço-te, de beber um pouco de água; porque tenho sede. Então, ela abriu um odre de leite, e deu-lhe de beber, e o cobriu.

20 And he said to her, Take your place at the door of the tent, and if anyone comes and says to you, Is there any man here, say, No.
20 E ele lhe disse: Põe-te à porta da tenda; e há de ser que, se alguém vier, e te perguntar, e disser: Há aqui alguém? Responde tu, então: Não.

21 Then Jael, Heber’s wife, took a tent-pin and a hammer and went up to him quietly, driving the pin into his head, and it went through his head into the earth, for he was in a deep sleep from weariness; and so he came to his end.
21 Então, Jael, mulher de Héber, tomou uma estaca da tenda, e lançou mão de um martelo, e foi-se mansamente a ele, e lhe cravou a estaca na fonte, e a pregou na terra, estando ele, porém, carregado de um profundo sono e já cansado; e assim morreu.

22 Then Jael went out, and meeting Barak going after Sisera, said to him, Come, and I will let you see the man you are searching for. So he came into her tent and saw, and there was Sisera stretched out dead with the tent-pin in his head.
22 E eis que, seguindo Baraque a Sísera, Jael lhe saiu ao encontro e disse-lhe: Vem, e mostrar-te-ei o homem que buscas. E veio a ela, e eis que Sísera jazia morto, e a estaca, na fonte.

23 So that day God overcame Jabin, king of Canaan, before the children of Israel.
23 Assim, Deus, naquele dia, sujeitou a Jabim, rei de Canaã, diante dos filhos de Israel.

24 And the power of the children of Israel went on increasing against Jabin, king of Canaan, till he was cut off.
24 E continuou a mão dos filhos de Israel a lutar e a endurecer-se sobre Jabim, rei de Canaã, até que exterminaram a Jabim, rei de Canaã.

Judges 5

1 At that time Deborah and Barak, the son of Abinoam, made this song, saying:
1 E cantou Débora e Baraque, filho de Abinoão, naquele mesmo dia, dizendo:

2 Because of the flowing hair of the fighters in Israel, because the people gave themselves freely, give praise to the Lord.
2 Porquanto os chefes se puseram à frente em Israel, porquanto o povo se ofereceu voluntariamente, louvai ao SENHOR.

3 Give attention, O kings; give ear, O rulers; I, even I, will make a song to the Lord; I will make melody to the Lord, the God of Israel.
3 Ouvi, reis; dai ouvidos, príncipes; eu, eu cantarei ao SENHOR; salmodiarei ao SENHOR, Deus de Israel.

4 Lord, when you went out from Seir, moving like an army from the field of Edom, the earth was shaking and the heavens were troubled, and the clouds were dropping water.
4 Ó SENHOR, saindo tu de Seir, caminhando tu desde o campo de Edom, a terra estremeceu; até os céus gotejaram, até as nuvens gotejaram águas.

5 The mountains were shaking before the Lord, before the Lord, the God of Israel.
5 Os montes se derreteram diante do SENHOR, e até o Sinai diante do SENHOR, Deus de Israel.

6 In the days of Shamgar, the son of Anath, in the days of Jael, the highways were not used, and travellers went by side roads.
6 Nos dias de Sangar, filho de Anate, nos dias de Jael, cessaram os caminhos de se percorrerem; e os que andavam por veredas iam por caminhos torcidos.

7 Country towns were no more in Israel, ***were no more, till you, Deborah, came up, till you came up as a mother in Israel.
7 Cessaram as aldeias em Israel, cessaram, até que eu, Débora, me levantei, por mãe em Israel me levantei.

8 They had no one to make arms, there were no more armed men in the towns; was there a body-cover or a spear to be seen among forty thousand in Israel?
8 E, se escolhia deuses novos, logo a guerra estava às portas; via-se, por isso, escudo ou lança entre quarenta mil em Israel?

9 Come, you rulers of Israel, you who gave yourselves freely among the people: give praise to the Lord.
9 Meu coração é para os legisladores de Israel, que voluntariamente se ofereceram entre o povo; louvai ao SENHOR.

10 Let them give thought to it, who go on white asses, and those who are walking on the road.
10 Vós, os que cavalgais sobre jumentas brancas, que vos assentais em juízo e que andais pelo caminho, falai disto.

11 Give ear to the women laughing by the water-springs; there they will give again the story of the upright acts of the Lord, all the upright acts of his arm in Israel.
11 Onde se ouve o estrondo dos flecheiros, entre os lugares onde se tiram águas, ali falai das justiças do SENHOR, das justiças que fez às suas aldeias em Israel; então, o povo do SENHOR descia às portas.

12 Awake! awake! Deborah: awake! awake! give a song: Up! Barak, and take prisoner those who took you prisoner, O son of Abinoam.
12 Desperta, desperta, Débora, desperta, desperta, entoa um cântico; levanta-te, Baraque, e leva presos teus prisioneiros, tu, filho de Abinoão.

13 Then the chiefs went down to the doors; the Lord’s people went down among the strong ones.
13 Então, o Senhor fez dominar sobre os magníficos, entre o povo ao que ficou de resto; fez-me o SENHOR dominar sobre os valentes.

14 Out of Ephraim they came down into the valley; after you, Benjamin, among your tribesmen; from Machir came down the captains, and from Zebulun those in whose hand is the ruler’s rod.
14 De Efraim saiu a sua raiz contra Amaleque; e após ti vinha Benjamim dentre os teus povos; de Maquir e Zebulom desceram os legisladores, passando com o cajado do escriba.

15 Your chiefs, Issachar, were with Deborah; and Naphtali was true to Barak; into the valley they went rushing out at his feet. In Reuben there were divisions, and great searchings of heart.
15 Também os principais de Issacar foram com Débora; e, como Issacar, assim também Baraque foi enviado a pé para o vale; nas correntes de Rúben foram grandes as resoluções do coração.

16 Why did you keep quiet among the sheep, hearing nothing but the watchers piping to the flocks?
16 Por que ficaste tu entre os currais para ouvires os balidos dos rebanhos? Nas divisões de Rúben tiveram grandes esquadrinhações do coração.

17 Gilead was living over Jordan; and Dan was waiting in his ships; Asher kept in his place by the sea’s edge, living by his inlets.
17 Gileade se ficou dalém do Jordão, e Dã por que se deteve em navios? Aser se assentou nos portos do mar e ficou nas suas ruínas.

18 It was the people of Zebulun who put their lives in danger, even to death, with Naphtali on the high places of the field.
18 Zebulom é um povo que expôs a sua vida à morte, como também Naftali, nas alturas do campo.

19 The kings came on to the fight, the kings of Canaan were warring; in Taanach by the waters of Megiddo: they took no profit in money.
19 Vieram reis e pelejaram; então, pelejaram os reis de Canaã em Taanaque, junto às águas de Megido; não tomaram ganho de prata.

20 The stars from heaven were fighting; from their highways they were fighting against Sisera.
20 Desde os céus pelejaram; até as estrelas desde os lugares dos seus cursos pelejaram contra Sísera.

21 The river Kishon took them violently away, stopping their flight, the river Kishon. Give praise, O my soul, to the strength of the Lord!
21 O ribeiro de Quisom os arrastou, aquele antigo ribeiro, o ribeiro de Quisom. Pisaste, ó minha alma, a força.

22 Then loudly the feet of the horses were sounding with the stamping, the stamping of their war-horses.
22 Então, as unhas dos cavalos se despedaçaram pelo galopar, o galopar dos seus valentes.

23 A curse, a curse on Meroz! said the angel of the Lord. A bitter curse on her townspeople! Because they came not to the help of the Lord, to the help of the Lord among the strong ones.
23 Amaldiçoai a Meroz, diz o Anjo do SENHOR; acremente amaldiçoai os seus moradores, porquanto não vieram em socorro do SENHOR, em socorro do SENHOR, com os valorosos.

24 Blessings be on Jael, more than on all women! Blessings greater than on any in the tents!
24 Bendita seja sobre as mulheres Jael, mulher de Héber, o queneu; bendita seja sobre as mulheres nas tendas.

25 His request was for water, she gave him milk; she put butter before him on a fair plate.
25 Água pediu ele, leite lhe deu ela; em taça de príncipes lhe ofereceu manteiga.

26 She put out her hand to the tent-pin, and her right hand to the workman’s hammer; and she gave Sisera a blow, crushing his head, wounding and driving through his brow.
26 À estaca estendeu a sua mão esquerda, e ao maço dos trabalhadores, a sua direita; e matou a Sísera e rachou-lhe a cabeça, quando lhe pregou e atravessou as fontes.

27 Bent at her feet he went down, he was stretched out; bent at her feet he went down; where he was bent down, there he went down in death.
27 Entre os seus pés, se encurvou, caiu, ficou estirado; entre os seus pés, se encurvou, caiu; onde se encurvou, ali ficou abatido.

28 Looking out from the window she gave a cry, the mother of Sisera was crying out through the window, Why is his carriage so long in coming? When will the noise of his wheels be sounding?
28 A mãe de Sísera olhava pela janela e exclamava pela grade: Por que tarda em vir o seu carro? Por que se demoram os passos dos seus carros?

29 Her wise women gave answer to her, yes, she made answer again to herself,
29 As mais sábias das suas damas responderam; e até ela respondia a si mesma:

30 Are they not getting, are they not parting the goods among them: a young girl or two to every man; and to Sisera robes of coloured needlework, worked in fair colours on this side and on that, for the neck of the queen?
30 Porventura não achariam e repartiriam despojos? Uma ou duas moças a cada homem? Para Sísera despojos de várias cores, despojos de várias cores de bordados; de várias cores bordados de ambas as bandas, para os pescoços do despojo?

31 So may destruction come on all your haters, O Lord; but let your lovers be like the sun going out in his strength. And for forty years the land had peace.
31 Assim, ó SENHOR, pereçam todos os teus inimigos! Porém os que o amam sejam como o sol quando sai na sua força. (32) E sossegou a terra quarenta anos.

Judges 6

1 And the children of Israel did evil in the eyes of the Lord; and the Lord gave them up into the hand of Midian for seven years.
1 Porém os filhos de Israel fizeram o que parecia mal aos olhos do SENHOR; e o SENHOR os deu na mão dos midianitas por sete anos.

2 And Midian was stronger than Israel; and because of the Midianites, the children of Israel made holes for themselves in the mountains, and hollows in the rocks, and strong places.
2 E, prevalecendo a mão dos midianitas sobre Israel, fizeram os filhos de Israel para si, por causa dos midianitas, as covas que estão nos montes, e as cavernas, e as fortificações.

3 And whenever Israel’s grain was planted, the Midianites and the Amalekites and the people of the east came up against them;
3 Porque sucedia que, semeando Israel, subiam os midianitas e os amalequitas; e também os do Oriente contra ele subiam.

4 And put their army in position against them; and they took all the produce of the earth as far as Gaza, till there was no food in Israel, or any sheep or oxen or asses.
4 E punham-se contra eles em campo, e destruíam a novidade da terra, até chegarem a Gaza, e não deixavam mantimento em Israel, nem ovelhas, nem bois, nem jumentos.

5 For they came up regularly with their oxen and their tents; they came like the locusts in number; they and their camels were without number; and they came into the land for its destruction.
5 Porque subiam com os seus gados e tendas; vinham como gafanhotos, em tanta multidão, que não se podiam contar, nem a eles nem aos seus camelos; e entravam na terra para a destruir.

6 And Israel was in great need because of Midian; and the cry of the children of Israel went up to the Lord.
6 Assim, Israel empobreceu muito pela presença dos midianitas; então, os filhos de Israel clamaram ao SENHOR.

7 And when the cry of the children of Israel, because of Midian, came before the Lord,
7 E sucedeu que, clamando os filhos de Israel ao SENHOR, por causa dos midianitas,

8 The Lord sent a prophet to the children of Israel, who said to them, The Lord the God of Israel, has said, I took you up from Egypt, out of the prison-house;
8 enviou o SENHOR um profeta aos filhos de Israel, que lhes disse: Assim diz o SENHOR, Deus de Israel: Do Egito eu vos fiz subir e vos tirei da casa da servidão;

9 And I took you out of the hands of the Egyptians and out of the hands of all who were cruel to you, and I sent them out by force from before you and gave you their land;
9 e vos livrei da mão dos egípcios e da mão de todos quantos vos oprimiam; e os expeli de diante de vós e a vós dei a sua terra;

10 And I said to you, I am the Lord your God; you are not to give worship to the gods of the Amorites in whose land you are living, but you did not give ear to my voice.
10 e vos disse: Eu sou o SENHOR, vosso Deus; não temais aos deuses dos amorreus, em cuja terra habitais; mas não destes ouvidos à minha voz.

11 Now the angel of the Lord came and took his seat under the oak-tree in Ophrah, in the field of Joash the Abiezrite; and his son Gideon was crushing grain in the place where the grapes were crushed, so that the Midianites might not see it.
11 Então, o Anjo do SENHOR veio e assentou-se debaixo do carvalho que está em Ofra, que pertencia a Joás, abiezrita; e Gideão, seu filho, estava malhando o trigo no lagar, para o salvar dos midianitas.

12 And the angel of the Lord came before his eyes, and said to him, The Lord is with you, O man of war.
12 Então, o Anjo do SENHOR lhe apareceu e lhe disse: O SENHOR é contigo, varão valoroso.

13 Then Gideon said to him, O my lord, if the Lord is with us why has all this come on us? And where are all his works of power, of which our fathers have given us word, saying, Did not the Lord take us out of Egypt? But now he has given us up, handing us over to the power of Midian.
13 Mas Gideão lhe respondeu: Ai, senhor meu, se o SENHOR é conosco, por que tudo isto nos sobreveio? E que é feito de todas as suas maravilhas que nossos pais nos contaram, dizendo: Não nos fez o SENHOR subir do Egito? Porém, agora, o SENHOR nos desamparou e nos deu na mão dos midianitas.

14 And the Lord, turning to him, said, Go in the strength you have and be Israel’s saviour from Midian: have I not sent you?
14 Então, o SENHOR olhou para ele e disse: Vai nesta tua força e livrarás a Israel da mão dos midianitas; porventura, não te enviei eu?

15 And he said to him, O Lord, how may I be the saviour of Israel? See, my family is the poorest in Manasseh, and I am the least in my father’s house.
15 E ele lhe disse: Ai, Senhor meu, com que livrarei a Israel? Eis que a minha família é a mais pobre em Manassés, e eu, o menor na casa de meu pai.

16 Then the Lord said to him, Truly, I will be with you, and you will overcome the Midianites as if they were one man.
16 E o SENHOR lhe disse: Porquanto eu hei de ser contigo, tu ferirás os midianitas como se fossem um só homem.

17 So he said to him, If now I have grace in your eyes, then give me a sign that it is you who are talking to me.
17 E ele lhe disse: Se agora tenho achado graça aos teus olhos, dá-me um sinal de que és o que comigo falas.

18 Do not go away till I come with my offering and put it before you. And he said, I will not go away before you come back.
18 Rogo-te que daqui te não apartes, até que eu venha a ti, e traga o meu presente, e o ponha perante ti. E disse: Eu esperarei até que voltes.

19 Then Gideon went in and made ready a young goat, and with an ephah of meal he made unleavened cakes: he put the meat in a basket and the soup in which it had been cooked he put in a pot, and he took it out to him under the oak-tree and gave it to him there.
19 E entrou Gideão e preparou um cabrito e bolos asmos de um efa de farinha; a carne pôs num açafate e o caldo pôs numa panela; e trouxe-lho até debaixo do carvalho e lho apresentou.

20 And the angel of God said to him, Take the meat and the unleavened cakes and put them down on the rock over there, draining out the soup over them. And he did so.
20 Porém o Anjo de Deus lhe disse: Toma a carne e os bolos asmos, e põe-nos sobre esta penha, e verte o caldo. E assim o fez.

21 Then the angel of the Lord put out the stick which was in his hand, touching the meat and the cakes with the end of it; and a flame came up out of the rock, burning up the meat and the cakes: and the angel of the Lord was seen no longer.
21 E o Anjo do SENHOR estendeu a ponta do cajado que estava na sua mão e tocou a carne e os bolos asmos; então, subiu fogo da penha e consumiu a carne e os bolos asmos; e o Anjo do SENHOR desapareceu de seus olhos.

22 Then Gideon was certain that he was the angel of the Lord; and Gideon said, I am in fear, O Lord God! for I have seen the angel of the Lord face to face.
22 Então, viu Gideão que era o Anjo do SENHOR; e disse Gideão: Ah! Senhor JEOVÁ, que eu vi o Anjo do SENHOR face a face.

23 But the Lord said to him, Peace be with you; have no fear: you are in no danger of death.
23 Porém o SENHOR lhe disse: Paz seja contigo; não temas, não morrerás.

24 Then Gideon made an altar there to the Lord, and gave it the name Yahweh-shalom; to this day it is in Ophrah of the Abiezrites.
24 Então, Gideão edificou ali um altar ao SENHOR e lhe chamou SENHOR É Paz; e ainda até ao dia de hoje está em Ofra dos abiezritas.

25 The same night the Lord said to him, Take ten men of your servants and an ox seven years old, and after pulling down the altar of Baal which is your father’s, and cutting down the holy tree by its side,
25 E aconteceu, naquela mesma noite, que o SENHOR lhe disse: Toma o boi de teu pai, a saber, o segundo boi de sete anos, e derriba o altar de Baal, que é de teu pai, e corta o bosque que está ao pé dele.

26 Make an altar to the Lord your God on the top of this rock, in the ordered way and take the ox and make a burned offering with the wood of the holy tree which has been cut down.
26 E edifica ao SENHOR, teu Deus, um altar no cume deste lugar forte, num lugar conveniente; e toma o segundo boi e o oferecerás em holocausto com a lenha que cortares do bosque.

27 Then Gideon took ten of his servants and did as the Lord had said to him; but fearing to do it by day, because of his father’s people and the men of the town, he did it by night.
27 Então, Gideão tomou dez homens dentre os seus servos e fez como o SENHOR lhe dissera; e sucedeu que, temendo ele a casa de seu pai e os homens daquela cidade, não o fez de dia, mas fê-lo de noite.

28 And the men of the town got up early in the morning, and they saw the altar of Baal broken down, and the holy tree which was by it cut down, and the ox offered on the altar which had been put up there.
28 Levantando-se, pois, os homens daquela cidade de madrugada, eis que estava o altar de Baal derribado, e o bosque, que estava ao pé dele, cortado; e o segundo boi foi oferecido no altar de novo edificado.

29 And they said to one another, Who has done this thing? And after searching with care, they said, Gideon, the son of Joash, has done this thing.
29 E uns aos outros disseram: Quem fez esta coisa? E, esquadrinhando e inquirindo, disseram: Gideão, o filho de Joás, fez esta coisa.

30 Then the men of the town said to Joash, Make your son come out to be put to death, for pulling down the altar of Baal and cutting down the holy tree which was by it.
30 Então, os homens daquela cidade disseram a Joás: Tira para fora o teu filho para que morra, pois derribou o altar de Baal e cortou o bosque que estava ao pé dele.

31 But Joash said to all those who were attacking him, Will you take up the cause of Baal? will you be his saviour? Let anyone who will take up his cause be put to death while it is still morning: if he is a god, let him take up his cause himself because of the pulling down of his altar.
31 Porém Joás disse a todos os que se puseram contra ele: Contendereis vós por Baal? Livrá-lo-eis vós? Qualquer que por ele contender ainda esta manhã será morto; se é deus, por si mesmo contenda; pois derribaram o seu altar.

32 So that day he gave him the name of Jerubbaal, saying, Let Baal take up his cause against him because his altar has been broken down.
32 Pelo que, naquele dia, lhe chamaram Jerubaal, dizendo: Baal contenda contra ele, pois derribou o seu altar.

33 Then all the Midianites and the Amalekites and the people of the east, banding themselves together, went over and put up their tents in the valley of Jezreel.
33 E todos os midianitas, e amalequitas, e os filhos do Oriente se ajuntaram num corpo, e passaram, e puseram o seu campo no vale de Jezreel.

34 But the spirit of the Lord came on Gideon; and at the sound of his horn all Abiezer came together after him.
34 Então, o Espírito do SENHOR revestiu a Gideão, o qual tocou a buzina, e os abiezritas se ajuntaram após ele.

35 And he sent through all Manasseh, and they came after him; and he sent to Asher and Zebulun and Naphtali, and they came up and were joined to the others.
35 E enviou mensageiros por toda a tribo de Manassés, que também se convocou após ele; também enviou mensageiros a Aser, e a Zebulom, e a Naftali, e saíram-lhe ao encontro.

36 Then Gideon said to God, If you are going to give Israel salvation by my hand, as you have said,
36 E disse Gideão a Deus: Se hás de livrar Israel por minha mão, como tens dito,

37 See, I will put the wool of a sheep on the grain-floor; if there is dew on the wool only, while all the earth is dry, then I will be certain that it is your purpose to give Israel salvation by my hand as you have said.
37 eis que eu porei um velo de lã na eira; se o orvalho estiver somente no velo, e secura sobre toda a terra, então, conhecerei que hás de livrar Israel por minha mão, como tens dito.

38 And it was so: for he got up early on the morning after, and twisting the wool in his hands, he got a basin full of water from the dew on the wool.
38 E assim sucedeu; porque, ao outro dia, se levantou de madrugada, e apertou o velo, e do orvalho do velo espremeu uma taça cheia de água.

39 Then Gideon said to God, Do not be moved to wrath against me if I say only this: let me make one more test with the wool; let the wool now be dry, while the earth is covered with dew.
39 E disse Gideão a Deus: Não se acenda contra mim a tua ira, se ainda falar só esta vez; rogo-te que só esta vez faça a prova com o velo; rogo-te que só no velo haja secura, e em toda a terra haja o orvalho.

40 And that night God did so; for the wool was dry, and there was dew on all the earth round it.
40 E Deus assim o fez naquela noite, pois só no velo havia secura, e sobre toda a terra havia orvalho.

Judges 7

1 Then Jerubbaal, that is, Gideon, and all the people with him, got up early and put up their tents by the side of the water-spring of Harod; the tents of Midian were on the north side of him, under the hill of Moreh in the valley.
1 Então, Jerubaal (que é Gideão) se levantou de madrugada, e todo o povo que com ele havia, e se acamparam junto à fonte de Harode; de maneira que tinha o arraial dos midianitas para o norte, pelo outeiro de Moré, no vale.

2 And the Lord said to Gideon, So great is the number of your people, that if I give the Midianites into their hands they will be uplifted in pride over me and will say, I myself have been my saviour.
2 E disse o SENHOR a Gideão: Muito é o povo que está contigo, para eu dar os midianitas em sua mão; a fim de que Israel se não glorie contra mim, dizendo: A minha mão me livrou.

3 So now, let it be given out to the people that anyone who is shaking with fear is to go back from Mount Galud. So twenty-two thousand of the people went back, but there were still ten thousand.
3 Agora, pois, apregoa aos ouvidos do povo, dizendo: Quem for covarde e medroso, que volte e vá-se apressadamente das montanhas de Gileade. Então, voltaram do povo vinte e dois mil, e dez mil ficaram.

4 Then the Lord said to Gideon, There are still more people than is necessary; take them down to the water so that I may put them to the test for you there; then whoever I say is to go with you will go, and whoever I say is not to go will not go.
4 E disse o SENHOR a Gideão: Ainda muito povo há; faze-os descer às águas, e ali tos provarei; e será que aquele de que eu te disser: Este irá contigo, esse contigo irá; porém todo aquele de que eu te disser: Este não irá contigo, esse não irá.

5 So he took the people down to the water; and the Lord said to Gideon, Put on one side by themselves all those drinking up the water with their tongues like a dog; and in the same way, all those who go down on their knees to the water while drinking.
5 E fez descer o povo às águas. Então, o SENHOR disse a Gideão: Qualquer que lamber as águas com a sua língua, como as lambe o cão, esse porás à parte; como também a todo aquele que se abaixar de joelhos a beber.

6 Now the number of those who took up the water with their tongues was three hundred; all the rest of the people went down on their knees to the water.
6 E foi o número dos que lamberam, levando a mão à boca, trezentos homens; e todo o resto do povo se abaixou de joelhos a beber as águas.

7 And the Lord said to Gideon, By those three hundred who were drinking with their tongues I will give you salvation and give the Midianites into your hands; let the rest of the people go away, every man to his place.
7 E disse o SENHOR a Gideão: Com estes trezentos homens que lamberam as águas vos livrarei e darei os midianitas na tua mão; pelo que toda a outra gente se vá cada um ao seu lugar.

8 So they took the vessels of the people, and their horns from their hands, and he sent them away, every man to his tent, keeping only the three hundred; and the tents of Midian were lower down in the valley.
8 E o povo tomou na sua mão a provisão e as suas buzinas, e ele enviou todos os outros homens de Israel cada um à sua tenda, porém os trezentos homens reteve; e estava o arraial dos midianitas abaixo no vale.

9 The same night the Lord said to him, Up! go down now against their army, for I have given them into your hands.
9 E sucedeu que, naquela mesma noite, o SENHOR lhe disse: Levanta-te e desce ao arraial, porque o tenho dado na tua mão.

10 But if you have fear of going down, take your servant Purah with you and go down to the tents;
10 E, se ainda temes descer, desce tu e teu moço Pura ao arraial;

11 And after hearing what they are saying, you will get strength to go down against the army. So he went down with his servant Purah to the outer line of the tents of the armed men.
11 e ouvirás o que dizem, e, então, se esforçarão as tuas mãos, e descerás ao arraial. Então, desceu ele com o seu moço Pura até ao extremo das sentinelas que estavam no arraial.

12 Now the Midianites and the Amalekites and all the people of the east were covering the valley like locusts; and their camels were like the sand by the seaside, without number.
12 E os midianitas, e amalequitas, e todos os filhos do Oriente jaziam no vale como gafanhotos em multidão; e eram inumeráveis os seus camelos, como a areia que há na praia do mar em multidão.

13 When Gideon came there, a man was giving his friend an account of his dream, saying, See, I had a dream about a cake of barley bread which, falling into the tents of Midian, came on to the tent, overturning it so that it was stretched out flat on the earth.
13 Chegando, pois, Gideão, eis que estava contando um homem ao seu companheiro um sonho e dizia: Eis que um sonho sonhei: eis que um pão de cevada torrado rodava pelo arraial dos midianitas, e chegava até às tendas, e as feriu, e caíram, e as transtornou de cima para baixo, e ficaram abatidas.

14 And his friend in answer said, This is certainly the sword of Gideon, the son of Joash, the men of Israel: into their hands God has given up all the army of Midian.
14 E respondeu o seu companheiro e disse: Não é isto outra coisa, senão a espada de Gideão, filho de Joás, varão israelita. Deus tem dado na sua mão aos midianitas e a todo este arraial.

15 Then Gideon, hearing the story of the dream and the sense in which they took it, gave worship; then he went back to the tents of Israel, and said, Up! for the Lord has given the army of Midian into your hands.
15 E sucedeu que, ouvindo Gideão a narração deste sonho e a sua explicação, adorou; e tornou ao arraial de Israel e disse: Levantai-vos, porque o SENHOR tem dado o arraial dos midianitas nas vossas mãos.

16 Then separating the three hundred men into three bands, he gave every man a horn, and a vessel in which was a flaming branch.
16 Então, repartiu os trezentos homens em três esquadrões; e deu-lhes a cada um nas suas mãos buzinas e cântaros vazios, com tochas neles acesas.

17 And he said to them, Keep your eyes on me, and do what I do; when I come to the outer line of tents, whatever I do, you are to do the same.
17 E disse-lhes: Olhai para mim e fazei como eu fizer; e eis que, chegando eu ao extremo do arraial, será que, como eu fizer, assim fareis vós.

18 At the sound of my horn, and the horns of those who are with me, let your horns be sounded all round the tents, and say, For the Lord and for Gideon.
18 Tocando eu e todos os que comigo estiverem a buzina, então, também vós tocareis a buzina ao redor de todo o arraial e direis: Pelo SENHOR e Gideão.

19 So Gideon and the three hundred men who were with him came to the outer line of tents, at the start of the middle watch, when the watchmen had only then taken their stations; and the horns were sounded and the vessels broken.
19 Chegou, pois, Gideão e os cem homens que com ele iam ao extremo do arraial, ao princípio da vigília da meia-noite, havendo-se já posto as guardas; e tocaram as buzinas e partiram os cântaros que tinham nas mãos.

20 So the three bands all gave a loud note on their horns, and when the vessels had been broken, they took the flaming branches in their left hands, and the horns in their right hands ready for blowing, crying out, For the Lord and for Gideon.
20 Assim, tocaram os três esquadrões as buzinas, e partiram os cântaros, e tinham nas suas mãos esquerdas as tochas acesas e nas suas mãos direitas as buzinas, que tocavam; e exclamaram: Espada do SENHOR e de Gideão.

21 Then they made a line round the tents, every man in his place; and all the army, awaking from sleep, came running out, and with loud cries went in flight.
21 E ficou-se cada um no seu lugar ao redor do arraial; então, todo o exército deitou a correr, e, gritando, fugiram.

22 And the three hundred gave a loud note on their horns, and every man’s sword was turned by the Lord against his brother all through the army; and the army went in flight as far as Beth-shittah in the direction of Zeredah, to the edge of Abel-meholah by Tabbath.
22 Tocando, pois, os trezentos as buzinas, o SENHOR tornou a espada de um contra o outro, e isto em todo o arraial; e o exército fugiu para Zererá, até Bete-Sita, até aos limites de Abel-Meolá, acima de Tabate.

23 And the men of Israel came together from Naphtali and from Asher and all Manasseh, and went after Midian.
23 Então, os homens de Israel, e de Naftali, e de Aser, e de todo o Manassés foram convocados e perseguiram aos midianitas.

24 Then Gideon sent through all the hill-country of Ephraim saying, Come down against Midian, and keep the ways across Jordan before they come. So all the men of Ephraim, massing themselves together, kept the ways across Jordan.
24 Também Gideão enviou mensageiros a todas as montanhas de Efraim, dizendo: Descei ao encontro dos midianitas e tomai-lhes as águas até Bete-Bara, a saber, o Jordão. Convocados, pois, todos os homens de Efraim, tomaram- lhes as águas até Bete-Bara e Jordão.

25 And they took the two chiefs of Midian, Oreb and Zeeb; and they put Oreb to death at the rock of Oreb, and Zeeb they put to death at the place of the grape-crushing in Zeeb, and they went after Midian; but the heads of Oreb and Zeeb they took across Jordan to Gideon.
25 E prenderam dois príncipes dos midianitas, Orebe e Zeebe; e mataram Orebe na penha de Orebe, e Zeebe mataram no lagar de Zeebe, e perseguiram os midianitas, e trouxeram as cabeças de Orebe e de Zeebe a Gideão, dalém do Jordão.

Judges 8

1 And the men of Ephraim came and said to him, Why did you not send for us when you went to war against Midian? And they said sharp and angry words to him.
1 Então, os homens de Efraim lhe disseram: Que é isto que nos fizeste, que não nos chamaste, quando foste pelejar contra os midianitas? E contenderam com ele fortemente.

2 And he said to them, What have I done in comparison with you? Is not that which Ephraim took up after the grape-cutting better than all the grapes which Abiezer got in from the grape-cutting?
2 Porém ele lhes disse: Que mais fiz eu, agora, do que vós? Não são, porventura, os rabiscos de Efraim melhores do que a vindima de Abiezer?

3 God has given into your hands the chiefs of Midian, Oreb and Zeeb; what have I been able to do in comparison with you? And when he said this, their feeling about him became kinder.
3 Deus vos deu na vossa mão os príncipes dos midianitas, Orebe e Zeebe; que mais pude eu logo fazer do que vós? Então, a sua ira se abrandou para com ele, quando falou esta palavra.

4 Then Gideon came to Jordan and went over it with his three hundred, overcome with weariness and in need of food.
4 E, como Gideão veio ao Jordão, passou com os trezentos homens que com ele estavam, já cansados, mas ainda perseguindo.

5 And he said to the men of Succoth, Give bread cakes to my people, for they are overcome with weariness, and I am going on after Zebah and Zalmunna, the kings of Midian.
5 E disse aos homens de Sucote: Dai, peço-vos, alguns pedaços de pão ao povo que segue as minhas pisadas; porque estão cansados, e eu vou em alcance de Zeba e Salmuna, reis dos midianitas.

6 But the chiefs of Succoth said, Are the hands of Zebah and Zalmunna even now in your hand that we are to give bread to your army?
6 Porém os príncipes de Sucote disseram: Está já a palma da mão de Zeba e de Salmuna na tua mão, para que demos pão ao teu exército?

7 Then Gideon said, Because of this, when the Lord has given Zebah and Zalmunna into my hands, I will have you stretched on a bed of thorns of the waste land and on sharp stems, and have you crushed as grain is crushed on a grain-floor.
7 Então disse Gideão: Pois, quando o SENHOR der na minha mão a Zeba e a Salmuna, trilharei a vossa carne com os espinhos do deserto e com os abrolhos.

8 So he went up from there to Penuel and made the same request to the men of Penuel; but they gave him the same answer as the men of Succoth had given.
8 E dali subiu a Penuel e falou-lhes da mesma maneira; e os homens de Penuel lhe responderam como os homens de Sucote lhe haviam respondido.

9 So he said to the men of Penuel, When I come back in peace, I will have this tower broken down.
9 Pelo que também falou aos homens de Penuel, dizendo: Quando eu voltar em paz, derribarei esta torre.

10 Now Zebah and Zalmunna were in Karkor and their armies with them, about fifteen thousand men, those of all the army of the children of the east who were still living; for a hundred and twenty thousand of their swordsmen had been put to death.
10 Estavam, pois, Zeba e Salmuna em Carcor, e os seus exércitos com eles, uns quinze mil homens, todos os que ficaram do exército dos filhos do Oriente; e os que caíram foram cento e vinte mil homens, que arrancavam a espada.

11 And Gideon went up by the way used by the people living in tents on the east of Nobah and Jogbehah, and made an attack on the army when they had no thought of danger.
11 E subiu Gideão pelo caminho dos que habitavam em tendas, para o oriente de Noba e Jogbeá; e feriu aquele exército, porquanto o exército estava descuidado.

12 And Zebah and Zalmunna went in flight; and he went after them, and took the two kings of Midian, Zebah and Zalmunna, and put all the army to the curse.
12 E fugiram Zeba e Salmuna; porém ele os perseguiu, e tomou presos ambos os reis dos midianitas, a Zeba e a Salmuna, e afugentou todo o exército.

13 Then Gideon, the son of Joash, went back from the fight:
13 Voltando, pois, Gideão, filho de Joás, da peleja, antes do nascer do sol,

14 And taking prisoner a young man of the people of Succoth, he got from him, in answer to his questions, a list of the chiefs of Succoth and the responsible men, seventy-seven men.
14 tomou preso a um moço dos homens de Sucote e lhe fez perguntas; o qual descreveu os príncipes de Sucote e os seus anciãos, setenta e sete homens.

15 So he came to the men of Succoth and said, Here are Zebah and Zalmunna, on account of whom you made sport of me, saying, Are the hands of Zebah and Zalmunna even now in your hand, that we are to give bread to your army who are overcome with weariness?
15 Então, veio aos homens de Sucote e disse: Vedes aqui a Zeba e a Salmuna, dos quais desprezivelmente me deitastes em rosto, dizendo: Está já a palma da mão de Zeba e Salmuna na tua mão, para que demos pão aos teus homens, já cansados?

16 Then he took the responsible men of the town and had them crushed on a bed of thorns and sharp stems.
16 E tomou os anciãos daquela cidade, e espinhos do deserto, e abrolhos e com eles ensinou aos homens de Sucote.

17 And he had the tower of Penuel broken down and the men of the town put to death.
17 E derribou a torre de Penuel e matou os homens da cidade.

18 Then he said to Zebah and Zalmunna, Where are the men whom you put to death at Tabor? And they gave answer, As you are, so were they; every one of them was like a king’s son.
18 Depois, disse a Zeba e a Salmuna: Que homens eram os que matastes em Tabor? E disseram: Qual tu, tais eram eles; cada um, na aparência, como filhos de um rei.

19 And he said, They were my brothers, my mother’s sons: by the life of the Lord, if you had kept them safe, I would not put you to death.
19 Então, disse ele: Meus irmãos eram filhos de minha mãe; vive o SENHOR, que, se os tivésseis deixado em vida, eu não vos mataria a vós.

20 Then he said to Jether, his oldest son, Up! Put them to death. But the boy did not take out his sword, fearing because he was still a boy.
20 E disse a Jéter, seu primogênito: Levanta-te, mata-os. Porém o jovem não arrancou da sua espada, porque temia; porquanto ainda era jovem.

21 Then Zebah and Zalmunna said, Up! Put an end to us yourself: for you have a man’s strength. Then Gideon got up and put Zebah and Zalmunna to death and took the ornaments which were on their camels’ necks.
21 Então, disseram Zeba e Salmuna: Levanta-te tu e acomete-nos; porque, qual o homem, tal a sua valentia. Levantou-se, pois, Gideão, e matou a Zeba e a Salmuna, e tomou as luetas que estavam no pescoço dos seus camelos.

22 Then the men of Israel said to Gideon, Be our ruler, you and your son and your son’s son after him; for you have been our saviour from the hands of Midian.
22 Então, os homens de Israel disseram a Gideão: Domina sobre nós, tanto tu como teu filho e o filho de teu filho; porquanto nos livraste da mão dos midianitas.

23 But Gideon said to them, I will not be a ruler over you, and my son will not be a ruler over you: it is the Lord who will be ruler over you.
23 Porém Gideão lhes disse: Sobre vós eu não dominarei, nem tampouco meu filho sobre vós dominará; o SENHOR sobre vós dominará.

24 Then Gideon said to them, I have a request to make to you; let every man give me the ear-rings he has taken. (For they had gold ear-rings, because they were Ishmaelites.)
24 E disse-lhes mais Gideão: Uma petição vos farei: dai-me cada um de vós os pendentes do seu despojo (porque tinham pendentes de ouro, porquanto eram ismaelitas).

25 And they gave answer, We will gladly give them. So they put down a robe, every man dropping into it the ear-rings he had taken.
25 E disseram eles: De boa mente os daremos. E estenderam uma capa, e cada um deles deitou ali um pendente do seu despojo.

26 The weight of the gold ear-rings which he got from them was one thousand, seven hundred shekels of gold; in addition to the moon-ornaments and jewels and the purple robes which were on the kings of Midian, and the chains on their camels’ necks.
26 E foi o peso dos pendentes de ouro que pediu mil e setecentos siclos de ouro, afora as luetas, e as cadeias, e as vestes de púrpura que traziam os reis dos midianitas, e afora as coleiras que os camelos traziam ao pescoço.

27 And Gideon made an ephod from them and put it up in his town Ophrah; and all Israel went after it there and were false to the Lord; and it became a cause of sin to Gideon and his house.
27 E fez Gideão disso um éfode e pô-lo na sua cidade, em Ofra; e todo o Israel se prostituiu ali após ele; e foi por tropeço a Gideão e à sua casa.

28 So Midian was broken before the children of Israel and the Midianites never got back their strength. And the land had peace for forty years, in the days of Gideon.
28 Assim, foram abatidos os midianitas diante dos filhos de Israel e nunca mais levantaram a sua cabeça; e sossegou a terra quarenta anos nos dias de Gideão.

29 And Jerubbaal, the son of Joash, went back to his house and was living there.
29 E foi-se Jerubaal, filho de Joás, e habitou em sua casa.

30 Gideon had seventy sons, the offspring of his body; for he had a number of wives.
30 E teve Gideão setenta filhos, que procederam dele; porque tinha muitas mulheres.

31 And the servant-wife he had in Shechem had a son by him, to whom he gave the name Abimelech.
31 E sua concubina, que estava em Siquém, lhe deu também um filho; e pôs-lhe por nome Abimeleque.

32 And Gideon, the son of Joash, came to his end when he was very old, and his body was put in the resting-place of Joash his father, in Ophrah of the Abiezrites.
32 E faleceu Gideão, filho de Joás, numa boa velhice e foi sepultado no sepulcro de seu pai Joás, em Ofra dos abiezritas.

33 And after the death of Gideon, the children of Israel again went after the gods of Canaan and were false to the Lord, and made Baal-berith their god.
33 E sucedeu que, quando Gideão faleceu, os filhos de Israel se tornaram, e se prostituíram após os baalins, e puseram a Baal-Berite por deus.

34 And the children of Israel did not keep in their minds the Lord their God, who had been their saviour from all their haters on every side;
34 E os filhos de Israel se não lembraram do SENHOR, seu Deus, que os livrara da mão de todos os seus inimigos em redor;

35 And they were not kind to the house of Jerubbaal, that is, Gideon, in reward for all the good he had done to Israel.
35 nem usaram de beneficência com a casa de Jerubaal, a saber, de Gideão, conforme todo o bem que ele usara com Israel.

Judges 9

1 Now Abimelech, the son of Jerubbaal, went to Shechem to his mother’s family, and said to them and to all the family of his mother’s father,
1 E Abimeleque, filho de Jerubaal, foi-se a Siquém, aos irmãos de sua mãe, e falou-lhes e a toda a geração da casa do pai de sua mãe, dizendo:

2 Say now in the ears of all the townsmen of Shechem, Is it better for you to be ruled by all the seventy sons of Jerubbaal or by one man only? And keep in mind that I am your bone and your flesh.
2 Falai, peço-vos, aos ouvidos de todos os cidadãos de Siquém: Qual é melhor para vós: que setenta homens, todos os filhos de Jerubaal, dominem sobre vós ou que um homem sobre vós domine? Lembrai-vos também de que sou osso vosso e carne vossa.

3 So his mother’s family said all this about him in the ears of all the townsmen of Shechem: and their hearts were turned to Abimelech, for they said, He is our brother.
3 Então, os irmãos de sua mãe falaram acerca dele perante os ouvidos de todos os cidadãos de Siquém todas aquelas palavras; e o coração deles se inclinou para Abimeleque, porque disseram: É nosso irmão.

4 And they gave him seventy shekels of silver from the house of Baal-berith, with which Abimelech got the support of a number of uncontrolled and good-for-nothing persons.
4 E deram-lhe setenta peças de prata, da casa de Baal-Berite; e com elas alugou Abimeleque uns homens ociosos e levianos, que o seguiram.

5 Then he went to his father’s house at Ophrah, and put his brothers, the seventy sons of Jerubbaal, to death on the same stone; however, Jotham, the youngest, kept himself safe by going away to a secret place.
5 E veio à casa de seu pai, a Ofra, e matou os seus irmãos, os filhos de Jerubaal, setenta homens, sobre uma pedra. Porém Jotão, filho menor de Jerubaal, ficou, porque se tinha escondido.

6 And all the townsmen of Shechem and all Beth-millo came together and went and made Abimelech their king, by the oak of the pillar in Shechem.
6 Então, se ajuntaram todos os cidadãos de Siquém e toda Bete-Milo; e foram e levantaram a Abimeleque como rei, junto ao carvalho alto que está perto de Siquém.

7 Now Jotham, on hearing of it, went to the top of Mount Gerizim, and crying out with a loud voice said to them, Give ear to me, you townsmen of Shechem, so that God may give ear to you.
7 E, dizendo-o a Jotão, foi este, e pôs-se no cume do monte de Gerizim, e levantou a sua voz, e clamou, e disse-lhes: Ouvi-me a mim, cidadãos de Siquém, e Deus vos ouvirá a vós.

8 One day the trees went out to make a king for themselves; and they said to the olive-tree, Be king over us.
8 Foram uma vez as árvores a ungir para si um rei e disseram à oliveira: Reina tu sobre nós.

9 But the olive-tree said to them, Am I to give up my wealth of oil, by which men give honour to God, and go waving over the trees?
9 Porém a oliveira lhes disse: Deixaria eu a minha gordura, que Deus e os homens em mim prezam, e iria a labutar sobre as árvores?

10 Then the trees said to the fig-tree, You come and be king over us.
10 Então, disseram as árvores à figueira: Vem tu e reina sobre nós.

11 But the fig-tree said to them, Am I to give up my sweet taste and my good fruit and go waving over the trees?
11 Porém a figueira lhes disse: Deixaria eu a minha doçura, o meu bom fruto e iria labutar sobre as árvores?

12 Then the trees said to the vine, You come and be king over us.
12 Então, disseram as árvores à videira: Vem tu e reina sobre nós.

13 But the vine said to them, Am I to give up my wine, which makes glad God and men, to go waving over the trees?
13 Porém a videira lhes disse: Deixaria eu o meu mosto, que alegra a Deus e aos homens, e iria labutar sobre as árvores?

14 Then all the trees said to the thorn, You come and be king over us.
14 Então, todas as árvores disseram ao espinheiro: Vem tu e reina sobre nós.

15 And the thorn said to the trees, If it is truly your desire to make me your king, then come and put your faith in my shade; and if not, may fire come out of the thorn, burning up the cedars of Lebanon.
15 E disse o espinheiro às árvores: Se, na verdade, me ungis rei sobre vós, vinde e confiai-vos debaixo da minha sombra; mas, se não, saia fogo do espinheiro que consuma os cedros do Líbano.

16 So now, if you have done truly and uprightly in making Abimelech king, and if you have done well to Jerubbaal and his house in reward for the work of his hands;
16 Agora, pois, se é que em verdade e sinceridade procedestes, fazendo rei a Abimeleque, e se bem fizestes para com Jerubaal e para com a sua casa e se com ele usastes conforme o merecimento das suas mãos

17 (For my father made war for you, and put his life in danger, and made you free from the hands of Midian;
17 (porque meu pai pelejou por vós, e desprezou a sua vida, e vos livrou da mão dos midianitas;

18 And you have gone against my father’s family this day, and have put to death his sons, even seventy men on one stone, and have made Abimelech, the son of his servant-wife, king over the townsmen of Shechem because he is your brother;)
18 porém vós hoje vos levantastes contra a casa de meu pai, e matastes a seus filhos, setenta homens, sobre uma pedra, e a Abimeleque, filho da sua serva, fizestes reinar sobre os cidadãos de Siquém, porque é vosso irmão);

19 If then you have done what is true and upright to Jerubbaal and his family this day, may you have joy in Abimelech, and may he have joy in you;
19 se em verdade e sinceridade usastes com Jerubaal e com a sua casa hoje, alegrai-vos com Abimeleque, e também ele se alegre convosco.

20 But if not, may fire come out from Abimelech, burning up the townsmen of Shechem and Beth-millo; and may fire come out from the townsmen of Shechem and Beth-millo, for the destruction of Abimelech.
20 Mas, se não, saia fogo de Abimeleque e consuma os cidadãos de Siquém e Bete-Milo; e saia fogo dos cidadãos de Siquém e de Bete-Milo, que consuma a Abimeleque.

21 Then Jotham straight away went in flight to Beer, and was living there for fear of his brother Abimelech.
21 Então, partiu Jotão, e fugiu, e foi-se a Beer; e ali habitou por medo de Abimeleque, seu irmão.

22 So Abimelech was chief over Israel for three years.
22 Havendo, pois, Abimeleque dominado três anos sobre Israel,

23 And God sent an evil spirit between Abimelech and the townsmen of Shechem; and the townsmen of Shechem were false to Abimelech;
23 enviou Deus um mau espírito entre Abimeleque e os cidadãos de Siquém; e os cidadãos de Siquém se houveram aleivosamente contra Abimeleque;

24 So that punishment for the violent attack made on the seventy sons of Jerubbaal, and for their blood, might come on Abimelech, their brother, who put them to death, and on the townsmen of Shechem who gave him their help in putting his brothers to death.
24 para que a violência feita aos setenta filhos de Jerubaal viesse, e o seu sangue caísse sobre Abimeleque, seu irmão, que os matara, e sobre os cidadãos de Siquém, que lhe corroboraram as mãos, para matar os seus irmãos.

25 And the townsmen of Shechem put secret watchers on the tops of the mountains, and they made attacks on all who went by on the road and took their goods; and word of this came to Abimelech.
25 E os cidadãos de Siquém puseram contra ele quem lhe armasse emboscadas sobre os cumes dos montes; e a todo aquele que passava pelo caminho junto a eles o assaltavam; e contou-se a Abimeleque.

26 Then Gaal, the son of Ebed, came with his brothers, and went over to Shechem; and the men of Shechem put their faith in him.
26 Veio também Gaal, filho de Ebede, com seus irmãos, e passaram para dentro de Siquém; e os cidadãos de Siquém se fiaram nele.

27 And they went out into their fields and got in the fruit of their vines, and when the grapes had been crushed, they made a holy feast and went into the house of their god, and over their food and drink they were cursing Abimelech.
27 E saíram ao campo, e vindimaram as suas vinhas, e pisaram as uvas, e fizeram canções de louvor; e foram à casa de seu Deus, e comeram, e beberam, e amaldiçoaram a Abimeleque.

28 And Gaal, the son of Ebed, said, Who is Abimelech and who is Shechem, that we are to be his servants? Is it not right for the son of Jerubbaal and Zebul his captain to be servants to the men of Hamor, the father of Shechem? But why are we to be his servants?
28 E disse Gaal, filho de Ebede: Quem é Abimeleque, e quem é Siquém, para que o servíssemos? Não é, porventura, filho de Jerubaal? E não é Zebul o seu mordomo? servi, antes, aos homens de Hamor, pai de Siquém; pois por que razão nós o serviríamos a ele?

29 If only I had authority over this people! I would put Abimelech out of the way, and I would say to Abimelech, Make your army strong, and come out.
29 Ah! Se este povo estivera na minha mão, eu expeliria a Abimeleque. E a Abimeleque se disse: Multiplica o teu exército e sai.

30 Now Zebul, the ruler of the town, hearing what Gaal, the son of Ebed, had said, was moved to wrath.
30 E, ouvindo Zebul, o maioral da cidade, as palavras de Gaal, filho de Ebede, se acendeu a sua ira.

31 And he sent to Abimelech at Arumah, saying, See, Gaal, the son of Ebed, and his brothers have come to Shechem, and they are working up the town against you.
31 E enviou astutamente mensageiros a Abimeleque, dizendo: Eis que Gaal, filho de Ebede, e seus irmãos vieram a Siquém, e eis que eles fortificam esta cidade contra ti.

32 So now, get up by night, you and your people, and keep watch in the field secretly;
32 Levanta-te, pois, de noite, tu e o povo que tiveres contigo, e põe emboscadas no campo.

33 And in the morning, when the sun is up, get up early and make a rush on the town; and when he and his people come out against you, do to them whatever you have a chance to do.
33 E levanta-te pela manhã, ao sair o sol, e dá de golpe sobre a cidade; e eis que, saindo ele e o povo que tiver com ele contra ti, faze-lhe como alcançar a tua mão.

34 So Abimelech and the people with him got up by night, in four bands, to make a surprise attack on Shechem.
34 Levantou-se, pois, Abimeleque e todo o povo que com ele havia, de noite, e puseram emboscadas contra Siquém, em quatro bandos.

35 And Gaal, the son of Ebed, went out, and took his place at the doorway into the town; then Abimelech and his people got up from the place where they had been waiting.
35 E Gaal, filho de Ebede, saiu e pôs-se à entrada da porta da cidade; e Abimeleque e todo o povo que com ele havia se levantaram das emboscadas.

36 And when Gaal saw the people, he said to Zebul, See! people are coming down from the tops of the mountains. And Zebul said to him, You see the shade of the mountains like men.
36 E, vendo Gaal aquele povo, disse a Zebul: Eis que desce gente dos cumes dos montes. Zebul, ao contrário, lhe disse: As sombras dos montes vês por homens.

37 And Gaal said again, See! people are coming down from the middle of the land, and one band is coming by way of the oak-tree of the Seers.
37 Porém Gaal ainda tornou a falar e disse: Eis ali desce gente do meio da terra, e uma tropa vem do caminho do carvalho de Meonenim.

38 Then Zebul said to him, Now where is your loud talk when you said, Who is Abimelech that we are to be his servants? Is this not the people whom you were rating so low? Go out now, and make war on them.
38 Então, lhe disse Zebul: Onde está agora a tua boca, com a qual dizias: Quem é Abimeleque, para que o servíssemos? Não é este, porventura, o povo que desprezaste? Sai, pois, peço-te, e peleja contra ele.

39 So Gaal went out at the head of the townsmen of Shechem and made war on Abimelech.
39 E saiu Gaal à vista dos cidadãos de Siquém e pelejou contra Abimeleque.

40 And Abimelech went after him and he went in flight before him; and a great number were falling by the sword all the way up to the town.
40 E Abimeleque o perseguiu, porquanto fugiu de diante dele; e muitos feridos caíram até à entrada da porta da cidade.

41 Then Abimelech went back to Arumah; and Zebul sent Gaal and his brothers away and would not let them go on living in Shechem.
41 E Abimeleque ficou em Arumá. E Zebul expeliu a Gaal e a seus irmãos, para que não pudessem habitar em Siquém.

42 Now the day after, the people went out into the fields; and news of it came to Abimelech.
42 E sucedeu, no dia seguinte, que o povo saiu ao campo, e o disseram a Abimeleque.

43 And he took his people, separating them into three bands, and was waiting secretly in the field; and when he saw the people coming out of the town, he went up and made an attack on them.
43 Então, tomou o povo, e o repartiu em três bandos, e pôs emboscadas no campo; e olhou, e eis que o povo saía da cidade, e levantou-se contra eles e os feriu.

44 And Abimelech with his band made a rush, and took up their position at the doorway into the town; and the other two bands made a rush on all those who were in the fields, and overcame them.
44 Porque Abimeleque e as tropas que com ele havia deram neles de improviso e pararam à entrada da porta da cidade; e as outras tropas deram de improviso sobre todos quantos estavam no campo e os feriram.

45 And all that day Abimelech was fighting against the town; and he took it, and put to death the people who were in it, and had the town pulled down and covered with salt.
45 E Abimeleque pelejou contra a cidade todo aquele dia e tomou a cidade; e matou o povo que nela havia, e assolou a cidade, e a semeou de sal.

46 Then all the townsmen of the tower of Shechem, hearing of it, went into the inner room of the house of El-berith.
46 O que, ouvindo todos os cidadãos da torre de Siquém, entraram na fortaleza, em casa do deus Berite.

47 And word was given to Abimelech that all the men of the tower of Shechem were there together.
47 E contou-se a Abimeleque que todos os cidadãos da torre de Siquém se haviam congregado.

48 Then Abimelech went up to Mount Zalmon, with all his people; and Abimelech took an axe in his hand and, cutting down branches of trees, took them and put them on his back. And he said to the people who were with him, Be quick and do as you have seen me do.
48 Subiu, pois, Abimeleque ao monte de Salmom, ele e todo o povo que com ele havia; e Abimeleque tomou na sua mão machados, e cortou um ramo das árvores, e o levantou, e pô-lo ao seu ombro, e disse ao povo que com ele havia: O que me vistes fazer, apressai-vos a fazê-lo assim como eu.

49 So all the people got branches, every man cutting down a branch, and they went with Abimelech at their head and, massing the branches against the inner room, put fire to the room over them; so all those who were in the tower of Shechem, about a thousand men and women, were burned to death with it.
49 Assim, pois, também todo o povo, cada um cortou o seu ramo, e seguiram a Abimeleque, e os puseram junto da fortaleza, e queimaram a fogo a fortaleza com eles; de maneira que todos os da torre de Siquém morreram, uns mil homens e mulheres.

50 Then Abimelech went to Thebez, and put his army in position against Thebez and took it.
50 Então, Abimeleque foi-se a Tebes, e a sitiou, e a tomou.

51 But in the middle of the town there was a strong tower, to which all the men and women of the town went in flight and, shutting themselves in, went up to the roof of the tower.
51 Havia, porém, no meio da cidade uma torre forte; e todos os homens e mulheres e todos os cidadãos da cidade se acolheram a ela, e fecharam após si as portas, e subiram ao telhado da torre.

52 And Abimelech came to the tower and made an attack on it, and got near to the door of the tower for the purpose of firing it.
52 E Abimeleque veio até à torre, e a combateu, e chegou-se até à porta da torre, para a queimar.

53 But a certain woman sent a great stone, such as is used for crushing grain, on to the head of Abimelech, cracking the bone.
53 Porém uma mulher lançou um pedaço de uma mó sobre a cabeça de Abimeleque e quebrou-lhe o crânio.

54 Then quickly crying out to his body-servant, he said to him, Take out your sword and put an end to me straight away, so that men may not say of me, His death was the work of a woman. So the young man put his sword through him, causing his death.
54 Então, chamou logo ao moço que levava as suas armas e disse-lhe: Desembainha a tua espada e mata-me; para que se não diga de mim: Uma mulher o matou. E seu moço o atravessou, e ele morreu.

55 And when the men of Israel saw that Abimelech was dead, they went away, every man to his place.
55 Vendo, pois, os homens de Israel que já Abimeleque era morto, foram-se, cada um para o seu lugar.

56 In this way Abimelech was rewarded by God for the evil he had done to his father in putting his seventy brothers to death;
56 Assim, Deus fez tornar sobre Abimeleque o mal que tinha feito a seu pai, matando os seus setenta irmãos.

57 And God sent back on to the heads of the men of Shechem all the evil they had done, and the curse of Jotham, the son of Jerubbaal, came on them.
57 Como também todo o mal dos homens de Siquém fez tornar sobre a cabeça deles; e a maldição de Jotão, filho de Jerubaal, veio sobre eles.

Judges 10

1 Now after Abimelech, Tola, the son of Puah, the son of Dodo, a man of Issachar, became the saviour of Israel; he was living in Shamir in the hill-country of Ephraim.
1 E, depois de Abimeleque, se levantou, para livrar a Israel, Tola, filho de Puá, filho de Dodô, homem de Issacar; e habitava em Samir, na montanha de Efraim.

2 He was judge over Israel for twenty-three years; and at his death his body was put to rest in the earth in Shamir.
2 E julgou a Israel vinte e três anos; e morreu e foi sepultado em Samir.

3 And after him came Jair the Gileadite, who was judge over Israel for twenty-two years.
3 E, depois dele, se levantou Jair, gileadita, e julgou a Israel vinte e dois anos.

4 And he had thirty sons, who went on thirty young asses; and they had thirty towns in the land of Gilead, which are named Havvoth-Jair to this day.
4 E tinha este trinta filhos, que cavalgavam sobre trinta jumentos; e tinham trinta cidades, a que chamaram Havote-Jair até ao dia de hoje; as quais estão na terra de Gileade.

5 And at the death of Jair his body was put to rest in the earth in Kamon.
5 E morreu Jair e foi sepultado em Camom.

6 And again the children of Israel did evil in the eyes of the Lord, worshipping the Baals and Astartes, and the gods of Aram and the gods of Zidon and the gods of Moab and the gods of the children of Ammon and the gods of the Philistines; they gave up the Lord and were servants to him no longer.
6 Então, tornaram os filhos de Israel a fazer o que parecia mal aos olhos do SENHOR e serviram aos baalins, e a Astarote, e aos deuses da Síria, e aos deuses de Sidom, e aos deuses de Moabe, e aos deuses dos filhos de Amom, e aos deuses dos filisteus; e deixaram o SENHOR e não o serviram.

7 And the wrath of the Lord was burning against Israel, and he gave them up into the hands of the Philistines and into the hands of the children of Ammon.
7 E a ira do SENHOR se acendeu contra Israel, e vendeu-o em mão dos filisteus e em mão dos filhos de Amom.

8 And that year the children of Israel were crushed under their yoke; for eighteen years all the children of Israel on the other side of Jordan, in the land of the Amorites which is in Gilead, were cruelly crushed down.
8 E, naquele mesmo ano, oprimiram e vexaram aos filhos de Israel; dezoito anos oprimiram todos os filhos de Israel que estavam dalém do Jordão, na terra dos amorreus, que está em Gileade.

9 And the children of Ammon went over Jordan, to make war against Judah and Benjamin and the house of Ephraim; and Israel was in great trouble.
9 Até os filhos de Amom passaram o Jordão, para pelejar também contra Judá, e contra Benjamim, e contra a casa de Efraim; de maneira que Israel ficou mui angustiado.

10 Then the children of Israel, crying out to the Lord, said, Great is our sin against you, for we have given up our God and have been servants to the Baals.
10 Então, os filhos de Israel clamaram ao SENHOR, dizendo: Contra ti havemos pecado, porque deixamos o nosso Deus e servimos aos baalins.

11 And the Lord said to the children of Israel, Were not the Egyptians and the Amorites and the children of Ammon and the Philistines
11 Porém o SENHOR disse aos filhos de Israel: Porventura, dos egípcios, e dos amorreus, e dos filhos de Amom, e dos filisteus,

12 And the Zidonians and Amalek and Midian crushing you down, and in answer to your cry did I not give you salvation from their hands?
12 e dos sidônios, e dos amalequitas, e dos maonitas, que vos oprimiam, quando a mim clamastes, não vos livrei eu então da sua mão?

13 But, for all this, you have given me up and have been servants to other gods: so I will be your saviour no longer.
13 Contudo, vós me deixastes a mim e servistes a outros deuses; pelo que não vos livrarei mais.

14 Go, send up your cry for help to the gods of your selection; let them be your saviours in the time of your trouble.
14 Andai e clamai aos deuses que escolhestes; que vos livrem eles no tempo do vosso aperto.

15 And the children of Israel said to the Lord, We are sinners; do to us whatever seems good to you: only give us salvation this day.
15 Mas os filhos de Israel disseram ao SENHOR: Pecamos; faze-nos conforme tudo quanto te parecer bem aos teus olhos; tão-somente te rogamos que nos livres neste dia.

16 So they put away the strange gods from among them, and became the Lord’s servants; and his soul was angry because of the sorrows of Israel.
16 E tiraram os deuses alheios do meio de si e serviram ao SENHOR; então, se angustiou a sua alma por causa da desgraça de Israel.

17 Then the children of Ammon came together and put their army in position in Gilead. And the children of Israel came together and put their army in position in Mizpah.
17 E os filhos de Amom se convocaram e se puseram em campo em Gileade; e também os de Israel se congregaram e se puseram em campo em Mispa.

18 And the people of Israel said to one another, Who will be the first to make an attack on the children of Ammon? We will make him head over all Gilead.
18 Então, o povo, os príncipes de Gileade disseram uns aos outros: Quem será o varão que começará a pelejar contra os filhos de Amom? Ele será por cabeça de todos os moradores de Gileade.

Judges 11

1 Now Jephthah the Gileadite was a great man of war; he was the son of a loose woman, and Gilead was his father.
1 Era, então, Jefté, o gileadita, valente e valoroso, porém filho de uma prostituta; mas Gileade gerara a Jefté.

2 And Gilead’s wife gave birth to sons, and when her sons became men, they sent Jephthah away, saying, You have no part in the heritage of our father’s house, for you are the son of another woman.
2 Também a mulher de Gileade lhe deu filhos, e, sendo os filhos desta mulher já grandes, repeliram a Jefté e lhe disseram: Não herdarás em casa de nosso pai, porque és filho de outra mulher.

3 So Jephthah went in flight from his brothers and was living in the land of Tob, where a number of good-for-nothing men, joining Jephthah, went out with him on his undertakings.
3 Então, Jefté fugiu de diante de seus irmãos e habitou na terra de Tobe; e homens levianos se ajuntaram com Jefté e saíam com ele.

4 Now after a time the children of Ammon made war against Israel.
4 E aconteceu que, depois de alguns dias, os filhos de Amom pelejaram contra Israel.

5 And when the children of Ammon made war against Israel, the responsible men of Gilead went to get Jephthah back from the land of Tob;
5 Aconteceu, pois, que, como os filhos de Amom pelejassem contra Israel, foram os anciãos de Gileade buscar Jefté na terra de Tobe.

6 And they said to Jephthah, Come and be our chief so that we may make war against the children of Ammon.
6 E disseram a Jefté: Vem e sê-nos por cabeça, para que combatamos contra os filhos de Amom.

7 But Jephthah said to the responsible men of Gilead, Did you not, in your hate for me, send me away from my father’s house? Why do you come to me now when you are in trouble?
7 Porém Jefté disse aos anciãos de Gileade: Porventura, não me aborrecestes a mim e não me repelistes da casa de meu pai? Por que, pois, agora viestes a mim, quando estais em aperto?

8 And the responsible men of Gilead said to Jephthah, That is the reason we have come back to you; so go with us and make war against the children of Ammon, and we will make you our head over all the people of Gilead.
8 E disseram os anciãos de Gileade a Jefté: Por isso mesmo tornamos a ti, para que venhas conosco, e combatas contra os filhos de Amom, e nos sejas por cabeça sobre todos os moradores de Gileade.

9 Then Jephthah said to the responsible men of Gilead, If you take me back to make war against the children of Ammon, and if with the help of the Lord I overcome them, will you make me your head?
9 Então, Jefté disse aos anciãos de Gileade: Se me tornardes a levar para combater contra os filhos de Amom, e o SENHOR mos der diante de mim, então, eu vos serei por cabeça?

10 And the responsible men of Gilead said to Jephthah, May the Lord be our witness: we will certainly do as you say.
10 E disseram os anciãos de Gileade a Jefté: O SENHOR será testemunha entre nós, e assim o faremos conforme a tua palavra.

11 So Jephthah went with the responsible men of Gilead, and the people made him head and chief over them; and Jephthah said all these things before the Lord in Mizpah.
11 Assim, Jefté foi com os anciãos de Gileade, e o povo o pôs por cabeça e príncipe sobre si; e Jefté falou todas as suas palavras perante o SENHOR, em Mispa.

12 Then Jephthah sent men to the king of the children of Ammon, saying, What have you against me that you have come to make war against my land?
12 E enviou Jefté mensageiros ao rei dos filhos de Amom, dizendo: Que há entre mim e ti, que vieste a mim a pelejar contra a minha terra?

13 And the king of the children of Ammon said to the men sent by Jephthah, Because Israel, when he came up out of Egypt, took away my land, from the Arnon as far as the Jabbok and as far as Jordan: so now, give me back those lands quietly.
13 E disse o rei dos filhos de Amom aos mensageiros de Jefté: Porquanto, saindo Israel do Egito, tomou a minha terra, desde Arnom até Jaboque e ainda até ao Jordão; torna-ma, pois, agora em paz.

14 And Jephthah sent again to the king of the children of Ammon,
14 Porém Jefté prosseguiu ainda em enviar mensageiros ao rei dos filhos de Amom,

15 And said to him, This is the word of Jephthah: Israel did not take away the land of Moab or the land of the children of Ammon;
15 dizendo-lhe: Assim diz Jefté: Israel não tomou nem a terra dos moabitas nem a terra dos filhos de Amom;

16 But when they came up from Egypt, Israel went through the waste land to the Red Sea and came to Kadesh;
16 porque, subindo Israel do Egito, andou pelo deserto até ao mar Vermelho e chegou até Cades.

17 Then Israel sent men to the king of Edom saying, Let me now go through your land; but the king of Edom did not give ear to them. And in the same way he sent to the king of Moab, but he would not; so Israel went on living in Kadesh.
17 E Israel enviou mensageiros ao rei dos edomitas, dizendo: Rogo-te que me deixes passar pela tua terra. Porém o rei dos edomitas não lhe deu ouvidos. Enviou Israel também ao rei dos moabitas, o qual também não quis; e, assim, Israel ficou em Cades.

18 Then he went on through the waste land and round the land of Edom and the land of Moab, and came by the east side of the land of Moab, and put up their tents on the other side of the Arnon; they did not come inside the limit of Moab, for the Arnon was the limit of Moab.
18 Depois, andou pelo deserto, e rodeou a terra dos edomitas e a terra dos moabitas, e veio do nascente do sol à terra dos moabitas, e alojou-se dalém de Arnom; porém não entrou nos limites dos moabitas, porque Arnom é limite dos moabitas.

19 And Israel sent men to Sihon, king of the Amorites, the king of Heshbon; and Israel said to him, Let me now go through your land to my place.
19 Mas Israel enviou mensageiros a Seom, rei dos amorreus, rei de Hesbom; e disse-lhe Israel: Deixa-nos, peço-te, passar pela tua terra até ao meu lugar.

20 But Sihon would not give way and let Israel go through his land; and Sihon got together all his people, and put his army in position in Jahaz, and made war on Israel.
20 Porém Seom não se fiou em Israel para este passar nos seus limites; antes, Seom ajuntou todo o seu povo, e se acampou em Jaza, e combateu contra Israel.

21 And the Lord, the God of Israel, gave Sihon and all his people into the hands of Israel, and they overcame them; so all the land of the Amorites, the people of that land, became Israel’s.
21 E o SENHOR, Deus de Israel, deu a Seom com todo o seu povo na mão de Israel, e os feriram; e Israel tomou por herança toda a terra dos amorreus que habitavam naquela terra.

22 All the limit of the Amorites was theirs, from the Arnon as far as the Jabbok and from the waste land even to Jordan.
22 E por herança tomaram todos os limites dos amorreus, desde Arnom até Jaboque e desde o deserto até ao Jordão.

23 So now the Lord, the God of Israel, has taken away their land from the Amorites and given it to his people Israel; are you then to have it?
23 Assim, o SENHOR, Deus de Israel, desapossou os amorreus de diante do seu povo de Israel; e os possuirias tu?

24 Do you not keep the lands of those whom Chemosh your god sends out from before you? So we will keep all the lands of those whom the Lord our God sends out from before us.
24 Não possuirias tu aquele que Quemos, teu deus, desapossasse de diante de ti? Assim possuiremos nós todos quantos o SENHOR, nosso Deus, desapossar de diante de nós.

25 What! are you any better than Balak, the son of Zippor, king of Moab? Did he ever take up a cause against Israel or make war against them?
25 Agora, pois, és tu ainda melhor do que Balaque, filho de Zipor, rei dos moabitas? Porventura, contendeu ele em algum tempo com Israel ou pelejou alguma vez contra ele?

26 While Israel was living in Heshbon and its daughter-towns and in Aroer and its daughter-towns and in all the towns which are by the side of the Arnon, for three hundred years, why did you not get them back at that time?
26 Enquanto Israel habitou trezentos anos em Hesbom e nas suas vilas, e em Aroer e nas suas vilas, e em todas as cidades que estão ao longo de Arnom, por que o não recuperaste naquele tempo?

27 So I have done no wrong against you, but you are doing wrong to me in fighting against me: may the Lord, who is Judge this day, be judge between the children of Israel and the children of Ammon.
27 Tampouco pequei eu contra ti! Porém tu usas mal comigo em pelejar contra mim; o SENHOR, que é juiz, julgue hoje entre os filhos de Israel e entre os filhos de Amom.

28 The king of the children of Ammon, however, did not give ear to the words which Jephthah sent to him.
28 Porém o rei dos filhos de Amom não deu ouvidos às palavras que Jefté lhe enviou.

29 Then the spirit of the Lord came on Jephthah, and he went through Gilead and Manasseh, and came to Mizpeh of Gilead; and from Mizpeh of Gilead he went over to the children of Ammon.
29 Então, o Espírito do SENHOR veio sobre Jefté, e atravessou ele por Gileade e Manassés; porque passou até Mispa de Gileade e de Mispa de Gileade passou até aos filhos de Amom.

30 And Jephthah took an oath to the Lord, and said, If you will give the children of Ammon into my hands,
30 E Jefté fez um voto ao SENHOR e disse: Se totalmente deres os filhos de Amom na minha mão,

31 Then whoever comes out from the door of my house, meeting me when I come back in peace from the children of Ammon, will be the Lord’s and I will give him as a burned offering.
31 aquilo que, saindo da porta de minha casa, me sair ao encontro, voltando eu dos filhos de Amom em paz, isso será do SENHOR, e o oferecerei em holocausto.

32 So Jephthah went over to the children of Ammon to make war on them; and the Lord gave them into his hands.
32 Assim, Jefté passou aos filhos de Amom, a combater contra eles; e o SENHOR os deu na sua mão.

33 And he made an attack on them from Aroer all the way to Minnith, overrunning twenty towns, as far as Abel-cheramim, and put great numbers to the sword. So the children of Ammon were crushed before the children of Israel.
33 E os feriu com grande mortandade, desde Aroer até chegar a Minite, vinte cidades, e até Abel-Queramim; assim foram subjugados os filhos de Amom diante dos filhos de Israel.

34 Then Jephthah came back to his house in Mizpah, and his daughter came out, meeting him on his way with music and with dances; she was his only child; he had no other sons or daughters.
34 Vindo, pois, Jefté a Mispa, à sua casa, eis que a sua filha lhe saiu ao encontro com adufes e com danças; e era ela só, a única; não tinha outro filho nem filha.

35 And when he saw her he was overcome with grief, and said, Ah! my daughter! I am crushed with sorrow, and it is you who are the chief cause of my trouble; for I have made an oath to the Lord and I may not take it back.
35 E aconteceu que, quando a viu, rasgou as suas vestes e disse: Ah! Filha minha, muito me abateste e és dentre os que me turbam! Porque eu abri a minha boca ao SENHOR e não tornarei atrás.

36 And she said to him, My father, you have made an oath to the Lord; do then to me whatever you have said; for the Lord has sent a full reward on your haters, on the children of Ammon.
36 E ela lhe disse: Pai meu, abriste tu a tua boca ao SENHOR; faze de mim como saiu da tua boca, pois o SENHOR te vingou dos teus inimigos, os filhos de Amom.

37 Then she said to her father, Only do this for me: let me have two months to go away into the mountains with my friends, weeping for my sad fate.
37 Disse mais a seu pai: Faze-me isto: deixa-me por dois meses que vá, e desça pelos montes, e chore a minha virgindade, eu e as minhas companheiras.

38 And he said, Go then. So he sent her away for two months; and she went with her friends to the mountains, weeping for her sad fate.
38 E disse ele: Vai. E deixou-a ir por dois meses. Então, foi-se ela com as suas companheiras e chorou a sua virgindade pelos montes.

39 And at the end of two months she went back to her father, who did with her as he had said in his oath: and she had never been touched by a man. So it became a rule in Israel,
39 E sucedeu que, ao fim de dois meses, tornou ela para seu pai, o qual cumpriu nela o seu voto que tinha feito; e ela não conheceu varão. E daqui veio o costume em Israel,

40 For the women to go year by year sorrowing for the daughter of Jephthah the Gileadite, four days in every year.
40 que as filhas de Israel iam de ano em ano a lamentar a filha de Jefté, o gileadita, por quatro dias no ano.

Judges 12

1 Now the men of Ephraim came together and took up arms and went over to Zaphon; and they said to Jephthah, Why did you go over to make war against the children of Ammon without sending for us to go with you? Now we will put your house on fire over you.
1 Então, se convocaram os homens de Efraim, e passaram para o norte, e disseram a Jefté: Por que passaste a combater contra os filhos de Amom e não nos chamaste para ir contigo? Queimaremos a fogo a tua casa contigo.

2 And Jephthah said to them, I and my people were in danger, and the children of Ammon were very cruel to us, and when I sent for you, you gave me no help against them.
2 E Jefté lhes disse: Eu e o meu povo tivemos grande contenda com os filhos de Amom; e chamei-vos, e não me livrastes da sua mão.

3 So when I saw that there was no help to be had from you, I put my life in my hand and went over against the children of Ammon, and the Lord gave them into my hands: why then have you come up to me this day to make war on me?
3 E, vendo eu que me não livráveis, pus a minha alma na minha mão e passei aos filhos de Amom, e o SENHOR mos entregou nas mãos; por que, pois, subistes vós hoje contra mim, para combater contra mim?

4 Then Jephthah got together all the men of Gilead and made war on Ephraim; and the men of Gilead overcame Ephraim.
4 E ajuntou Jefté a todos os homens de Gileade e combateu com Efraim, e os homens de Gileade feriram a Efraim; porque, estando os gileaditas entre Efraim e Manassés, disseram: Fugitivos sois de Efraim.

5 And the Gileadites took the crossing-places of Jordan against the Ephraimites; and when any of the men of Ephraim who had gone in flight said, let me go over; the men of Gilead said to him, Are you an Ephraimite? And if he said, No;
5 Porém tomaram os gileaditas aos efraimitas os vaus do Jordão; e sucedeu que, quando os fugitivos de Efraim diziam: Passarei; então, os homens de Gileade lhes diziam: És tu efraimita? E dizendo ele: Não;

6 Then they said to him, Now say Shibboleth; and he said Sibboleth, and was not able to say it in the right way; then they took him and put him to death at the crossing-places of Jordan; and at that time forty-two thousand Ephraimites were put to death.
6 então, lhe diziam: Dize, pois, chibolete; porém ele dizia: sibolete, porque o não podia pronunciar assim bem; então, pegavam dele e o degolavam nos vaus do Jordão; e caíram de Efraim, naquele tempo, quarenta e dois mil.

7 Now Jephthah was judge of Israel for six years. And Jephthah the Gileadite came to his death, and his body was put to rest in his town, Mizpeh of Gilead.
7 E Jefté julgou a Israel seis anos; e Jefté, o gileadita, faleceu e foi sepultado nas cidades de Gileade.

8 And after him, Ibzan of Beth-lehem was judge of Israel.
8 E, depois dele, julgou a Israel Ibsã, de Belém.

9 He had thirty sons, and thirty daughters whom he sent to other places, and he got thirty wives from other places for his sons. And he was judge of Israel for seven years.
9 E tinha este trinta filhos; e pôs fora trinta filhas; e trinta filhas trouxe de fora para seus filhos; e julgou a Israel sete anos.

10 And Ibzan came to his death and his body was put to rest at Beth-lehem.
10 Então, faleceu Ibsã e foi sepultado em Belém.

11 And after him, Elon the Zebulonite was judge of Israel; and he was judge of Israel for ten years.
11 E, depois dele, julgou a Israel Elom, o zebulonita; e julgou a Israel dez anos.

12 And Elon the Zebulonite came to his death, and his body was put to rest in Aijalon in the land of Zebulun.
12 E faleceu Elom, o zebulonita, e foi sepultado em Aijalom, na terra de Zebulom.

13 And after him, Abdon, the son of Hillel, the Pirathonite, was judge of Israel.
13 E, depois dele, julgou a Israel Abdom, filho de Hilel, o piratonita.

14 He had forty sons and thirty sons’ sons who went on seventy young asses; and he was judge of Israel for eight years.
14 E tinha este quarenta filhos e trinta filhos de filhos, que cavalgavam sobre setenta jumentos; e julgou a Israel oito anos.

15 And Abdon, the son of Hillel, came to his death, and his body was put to rest in Pirathon in the land of Ephraim, in the hill-country of the Amalekites.
15 Então faleceu Abdom, filho de Hilel, o piratonita, e foi sepultado em Piratom, na terra de Efraim, no monte dos amalequitas.

Judges 13

1 And the children of Israel again did evil in the eyes of the Lord; and the Lord gave them into the hands of the Philistines for forty years.
1 E os filhos de Israel tornaram a fazer o que parecia mal aos olhos do SENHOR, e o SENHOR os entregou na mão dos filisteus por quarenta anos.

2 Now there was a certain man of Zorah of the family of the Danites, and his name was Manoah; and his wife had never given birth to a child.
2 E havia um homem de Zorá, da tribo de Dã, cujo nome era Manoá; e sua mulher era estéril e não tinha filhos.

3 And the angel of the Lord came to the woman, and said to her, See now! though you have never given birth to children, you will be with child and give birth to a son.
3 E o Anjo do SENHOR apareceu a esta mulher e disse-lhe: Eis que, agora, és estéril e nunca tens concebido; porém conceberás e terás um filho.

4 Now then take care to have no wine or strong drink and to take no unclean thing for food;
4 Agora, pois, guarda-te de que bebas vinho ou bebida forte, nem comas coisa imunda.

5 For you are with child and will give birth to a son; his hair is never to be cut, for the child is to be separate to God from his birth; and he will take up the work of freeing Israel from the hands of the Philistines.
5 Porque eis que tu conceberás e terás um filho sobre cuja cabeça não passará navalha; porquanto o menino será nazireu de Deus desde o ventre e ele começará a livrar a Israel da mão dos filisteus.

6 Then the woman came in, and said to her husband, A man came to me, and his form was like the form of a god, causing great fear; I put no question to him about where he came from, and he did not give me his name;
6 Então, a mulher entrou e falou a seu marido, dizendo: Um homem de Deus veio a mim, cuja vista era semelhante à vista de um anjo de Deus, terribilíssima; e não lhe perguntei de onde era, nem ele me disse o seu nome.

7 But he said to me, You are with child and will give birth to a son; and now do not take any wine or strong drink or let anything unclean be your food; for the child will be separate to God from his birth to the day of his death.
7 Porém disse-me: Eis que tu conceberás e terás um filho; agora, pois, não bebas vinho nem bebida forte e não comas coisa imunda; porque o menino será nazireu de Deus, desde o ventre até o dia da sua morte.

8 Then Manoah made prayer to the Lord, and said, O Lord, let the man of God whom you sent come to us again and make clear to us what we are to do for the child who is to come.
8 Então, Manoá orou instantemente ao SENHOR e disse: Ah! Senhor meu, rogo-te que o homem de Deus, que enviaste, ainda venha para nós outra vez e nos ensine o que devemos fazer ao menino que há de nascer.

9 And God gave ear to the voice of Manoah; and the angel of God came to the woman again when she was seated in the field; but her husband Manoah was not with her.
9 E Deus ouviu a voz de Manoá; e o Anjo de Deus veio outra vez à mulher, e ela estava no campo, porém não estava com ela seu marido Manoá.

10 So the woman, running quickly, gave her husband the news, saying, I have seen the man who came to me the other day.
10 Apressou-se, pois, a mulher, e correu, e noticiou a seu marido, e disse-lhe: Eis que aquele homem que veio a mim no outro dia me apareceu.

11 And Manoah got up and went after his wife, and came up to the man and said to him, Are you the man who was talking to this woman? And he said, I am.
11 Então, Manoá levantou-se, e seguiu a sua mulher, e veio àquele homem, e disse-lhe: És tu aquele homem que falaste a esta mulher? E disse: Eu sou.

12 And Manoah said, Now when your words come true, what is to be the rule for the child and what will be his work?
12 Então, disse Manoá: Cumpram-se as tuas palavras; mas qual será o modo de viver e serviço do menino?

13 And the angel of the Lord said to Manoah, Let the woman take note of what I have said to her.
13 E disse o Anjo do SENHOR a Manoá: De tudo quanto eu disse à mulher se guardará ela.

14 She is to have nothing which comes from the vine for her food, and let her take no wine or strong drink or anything which is unclean; let her take care to do all I have given her orders to do.
14 De tudo quanto procede da vide não comerá, nem vinho, nem bebida forte beberá, nem coisa imunda comerá; tudo quanto lhe tenho ordenado guardará.

15 And Manoah said to the angel of the Lord, Now let us keep you while we make ready a young goat for you.
15 Então, Manoá disse ao Anjo do SENHOR: Ora, deixa que te detenhamos e te preparemos um cabrito.

16 And the angel of the Lord said to Manoah, Though you keep me I will not take of your food; but if you will make a burned offering, let it be offered to the Lord. For it had not come into Manoah’s mind that he was the angel of the Lord.
16 Porém o Anjo do SENHOR disse a Manoá: Ainda que me detenhas, não comerei de teu pão; e, se fizeres holocausto, o oferecerás ao SENHOR. Porque não sabia Manoá que fosse o Anjo do SENHOR.

17 Then Manoah said to the angel of the Lord, What is your name, so that when your words come true we may give you honour?
17 E disse Manoá ao Anjo do SENHOR: Qual é o teu nome? Para que, quando se cumprir a tua palavra, te honremos.

18 But the angel of the Lord said to him, Why are you questioning me about my name, seeing that it is a wonder?
18 E o Anjo do SENHOR lhe disse: Por que perguntas assim pelo meu nome, visto que é maravilhoso?

19 So Manoah took the young goat with its meal offering, offering it on the rock to the Lord, who did strange things.
19 Então, Manoá tomou um cabrito e uma oferta de manjares e os ofereceu sobre uma penha ao SENHOR; e agiu o Anjo maravilhosamente, vendo-o Manoá e sua mulher.

20 And when the flame went up to heaven from the altar, the angel of the Lord went up in the flame of the altar, while Manoah and his wife were looking on; and they went down on their faces to the earth.
20 E sucedeu que, subindo a chama do altar para o céu, o Anjo do SENHOR subiu na chama do altar; o que vendo Manoá e sua mulher, caíram em terra sobre seu rosto.

21 But the angel of the Lord was seen no more by Manoah and his wife. Then it was clear to Manoah that he was the angel of the Lord.
21 E nunca mais apareceu o Anjo do SENHOR a Manoá, nem à sua mulher; então, conheceu Manoá que era o Anjo do SENHOR.

22 And Manoah said to his wife, Death will certainly be our fate, for it is a god whom we have seen.
22 E disse Manoá à sua mulher: Certamente morreremos, porquanto temos visto Deus.

23 But his wife said to him, If the Lord was purposing our death, he would not have taken our burned offering and our meal offering, or have given us such orders about the child.
23 Porém sua mulher lhe disse: Se o SENHOR nos quisera matar, não aceitaria da nossa mão o holocausto e a oferta de manjares, nem nos mostraria tudo isto, nem nos deixaria ouvir tais coisas neste tempo.

24 So the woman gave birth to a son, and gave him the name Samson; and he became a man and the blessing of the Lord was on him.
24 Depois, teve esta mulher um filho e chamou o seu nome Sansão; e o menino cresceu, e o SENHOR o abençoou.

25 And the spirit of the Lord first came on him in Mahaneh-dan, between Zorah and Eshtaol.
25 E o Espírito do SENHOR o começou a impelir de quando em quando para o campo de Dã, entre Zorá e Estaol.

Judges 14

1 Now Samson went down to Timnah, and saw a woman in Timnah, of the daughters of the Philistines;
1 E desceu Sansão a Timna; e, vendo em Timna a uma mulher das filhas dos filisteus,

2 And when he came back he said to his father and mother, I have seen a woman in Timnah, of the daughters of the Philistines: get her now for me for my wife.
2 subiu, e declarou-o a seu pai e a sua mãe, e disse: Vi uma mulher em Timna, das filhas dos filisteus; agora, pois, tomai-ma por mulher.

3 Then his father and mother said to him, Is there no woman among the daughters of your relations or among all my people, that you have to go for your wife to the Philistines, who are without circumcision? But Samson said to his father, Get her for me, for she is pleasing to me.
3 Porém seu pai e sua mãe lhe disseram: Não há, porventura, mulher entre as filhas de teus irmãos, nem entre todo o meu povo, para que tu vás tomar mulher dos filisteus, daqueles incircuncisos? E disse Sansão a seu pai: Tomai-me esta, porque ela agrada aos meus olhos.

4 Now his father and mother had no knowledge that this was the purpose of the Lord, who had the destruction of the Philistines in mind. Now the Philistines at that time were ruling over Israel.
4 Mas seu pai e sua mãe não sabiam que isto vinha do SENHOR; pois buscava ocasião contra os filisteus, porquanto, naquele tempo, os filisteus dominavam sobre Israel.

5 Then Samson went down to Timnah (and his father and his mother,) and came to the vine-gardens of Timnah; and a young lion came rushing out at him.
5 Desceu, pois, Sansão com seu pai e com sua mãe a Timna; e, chegando às vinhas de Timna, eis que um filho de leão, bramando, lhe saiu ao encontro.

6 And the spirit of the Lord came on him with power, and, unarmed as he was, pulling the lion in two as one might do to a young goat, he put him to death; (but he said nothing to his father and mother of what he had done.)
6 Então, o Espírito do SENHOR se apossou dele tão possantemente, que o fendeu de alto a baixo, como quem fende um cabrito, sem ter nada na sua mão; porém nem a seu pai nem a sua mãe deu a saber o que tinha feito.

7 So he went down and had talk with the woman; and she was pleasing to Samson.
7 E desceu e falou àquela mulher, e agradou aos olhos de Sansão.

8 Then after a time he went back to take her; and turning from the road to see the dead body of the lion, he saw a mass of bees in the body of the lion, and honey there.
8 E, depois de alguns dias, voltou ele para a tomar; e, apartando-se do caminho a ver o corpo do leão morto, eis que, no corpo do leão, havia um enxame de abelhas com mel.

9 And he took the honey in his hand, and went on, tasting it on the way; and when he came to his father and mother he gave some to them; but did not say that he had taken the honey from the body of the lion.
9 E tomou-o nas suas mãos e foi-se andando e comendo dele; e foi-se a seu pai e à sua mãe e deu-lhes dele, e comeram; porém não lhes deu a saber que tomara o mel do corpo do leão.

10 Then Samson went down to the woman, and made a feast there, as was the way among young men.
10 Descendo, pois, seu pai àquela mulher, fez Sansão ali um banquete, porque assim o costumavam fazer os jovens.

11 And he took thirty friends, and they were with him.
11 E sucedeu que, como o vissem, tomaram trinta companheiros para estarem com ele.

12 And Samson said, Now I have a hard question for you: if you are able to give me the answer before the seven days of the feast are over, I will give you thirty linen robes and thirty changes of clothing;
12 Disse-lhes, pois, Sansão: Eu vos darei um enigma a adivinhar, e, se nos sete dias das bodas mo declarardes e descobrirdes, vos darei trinta lençóis e trinta mudas de vestes.

13 But if you are not able to give me the answer, then you will have to give me thirty linen robes and thirty changes of clothing. And they said to him, Put your hard question and let us see what it is.
13 E, se mo não puderdes declarar, vós me dareis a mim os trinta lençóis e as trinta mudas de vestes. E eles lhe disseram: Dá-nos o teu enigma a adivinhar, para que o ouçamos.

14 And he said, Out of the taker of food came food, and out of the strong came the sweet. And at the end of three days they were still not able to give the answer.
14 Então, lhes disse: Do comedor saiu comida, e doçura saiu do forte. E em três dias não puderam declarar o enigma.

15 So on the fourth day they said to Samson’s wife, Get from your husband the answer to his question by some trick or other, or we will have you and your father’s house burned with fire; did you get us here to take all we have?
15 E sucedeu que, ao sétimo dia, disseram à mulher de Sansão: Persuade a teu marido que nos declare o enigma, para que, porventura, não queimemos a fogo a ti e à casa de teu pai; chamastes-nos vós aqui para possuir o que é nosso, não é assim?

16 Then Samson’s wife, weeping over him, said, Truly you have no love for me but only hate; you have put a hard question to the children of my people and have not given me the answer. And he said to her, See, I have not given the answer even to my father or my mother; am I to give it to you?
16 E a mulher de Sansão chorou diante dele e disse: Tão-somente me aborreces e não me amas; pois deste aos filhos do meu povo um enigma a adivinhar e ainda mo não declaraste a mim. E ele lhe disse: Eis que nem a meu pai nem à minha mãe o declarei e to declararia a ti?

17 And all the seven days of the feast she went on weeping over him; and on the seventh day he gave her the answer, because she gave him no peace; and she sent word of it to the children of her people.
17 E chorou diante dele os sete dias em que celebravam as bodas; sucedeu, pois, que, ao sétimo dia, lho declarou, porquanto o importunava; então, ela declarou o enigma aos filhos do seu povo.

18 Then on the seventh day, before he went into the bride’s room, the men of the town said to him, What is sweeter than honey? and what is stronger than a lion? And he said to them, If you had not been ploughing with my cow you would not have got the answer to my question.
18 Disseram-lhe, pois, os homens daquela cidade, ao sétimo dia, antes de se pôr o sol: Que coisa há mais doce do que o mel? E que coisa há mais forte do que o leão? E ele lhes disse: Se vós não lavrásseis com a minha novilha, nunca teríeis descoberto o meu enigma.

19 And the spirit of the Lord came rushing on him, and he went down to Ashkelon and, attacking thirty men there, took their clothing from them, and gave it to the men who had given the answer to his hard question. Then, full of wrath, he went back to his father’s house.
19 Então, o Espírito do SENHOR tão possantemente se apossou dele, que desceu aos asquelonitas, e matou deles trinta homens, e tomou as suas vestes, e deu as mudas de vestes aos que declararam o enigma; porém acendeu-se a sua ira, e subiu à casa de seu pai.

20 But Samson’s wife was given to the friend who had been his best man.
20 E a mulher de Sansão foi dada ao seu companheiro, que o acompanhava.

Judges 15

1 Now a short time after, at the time of the grain-cutting, Samson, taking with him a young goat, went to see his wife; and he said, I will go in to my wife into the bride’s room. But her father would not let him go in.
1 E aconteceu, depois de alguns dias, que na sega do trigo Sansão visitou a sua mulher com um cabrito e disse: Entrarei na câmara à minha mulher. Porém o pai dela não o deixou entrar.

2 And her father said, It seemed to me that you had only hate for her; so I gave her to your friend: but is not her younger sister fairer than she? so please take her in place of the other.
2 Porque disse seu pai: Por certo dizia eu que de todo a aborrecias; de sorte que a dei ao teu companheiro; porém não é sua irmã mais nova mais formosa do que ela? Toma-a, pois, em seu lugar.

3 Then Samson said to them, This time I will give payment in full to the Philistines, for I am going to do them great evil.
3 Então, Sansão disse acerca deles: Inocente sou esta vez para com os filisteus, quando lhes fizer algum mal.

4 So Samson went and got three hundred foxes and some sticks of fire-wood; and he put the foxes tail to tail with a stick between every two tails;
4 E foi Sansão, e tomou trezentas raposas, e, tomando tições, as virou cauda a cauda, e lhes pôs um tição no meio de cada duas caudas.

5 Then firing the sticks, he let the foxes loose among the uncut grain of the Philistines, and all the corded stems as well as the living grain and the vine-gardens and the olives went up in flames.
5 E chegou fogo aos tições, e largou-as na seara dos filisteus, e assim abrasou os molhos com a sega do trigo e as vinhas com os olivais.

6 Then the Philistines said, Who has done this? And they said, Samson, the son-in-law of the Timnite, because he took his wife and gave her to his friend. So the Philistines came up and had her and her father’s house burned.
6 Então, disseram os filisteus: Quem fez isto? E disseram: Sansão, o genro do timnita, porque lhe tomou a sua mulher e a deu a seu companheiro. Então, subiram os filisteus e queimaram a ela e a seu pai.

7 And Samson said to them, If you go on like this, truly I will take my full payment from you; and that will be the end of it.
7 Então, lhes disse Sansão: Assim o havíeis de fazer? Pois, havendo-me vingado eu de vós, então, cessarei.

8 And he made an attack on them, driving them in uncontrolled flight, and causing great destruction; then he went away to his safe place in the crack of the rock at Etam.
8 E feriu-os com grande ferimento, perna juntamente com coxa; e desceu e habitou no cume da rocha de Etã.

9 Then the Philistines went and put up their tents in Judah, all round Lehi.
9 Então, os filisteus subiram, e acamparam-se contra Judá, e estenderam-se por Leí.

10 And the men of Judah said, Why have you come up against us? And they said, We have come up to take Samson, and to do to him as he has done to us.
10 E disseram os homens de Judá: Por que subistes contra nós? E eles disseram: Subimos para amarrar Sansão, para lhe fazer a ele como ele nos fez a nós.

11 Then three thousand of the men of Judah went down to the crack of the rock of Etam, and said to Samson, Is it not clear to you that the Philistines are our rulers? What is this you have done to us? And he said to them, I only did to them as they did to me.
11 Então, três mil homens de Judá desceram até à cova da rocha de Etã e disseram a Sansão: Não sabias tu que os filisteus dominam sobre nós? Por que, pois, nos fizeste isto? E ele lhes disse: Assim como eles me fizeram a mim, eu lhes fiz a eles.

12 Then they said to him, We have come down to take you and give you up into the hands of the Philistines. And Samson said to them, Give me your oath that you will not make an attack on me yourselves.
12 E disseram-lhe: Descemos para te amarrar, para te entregar nas mãos dos filisteus. Então, Sansão lhes disse: Jurai-me que vós mesmos me não acometereis.

13 And they said, No; we will take you and give you up into their hands, but truly we will not put you to death. So knotting two new cords round him they took him up from the rock.
13 E eles lhe falaram, dizendo: Não, mas fortemente te amarraremos e te entregaremos na sua mão; porém, de maneira nenhuma, te mataremos. E amarraram-no com duas cordas novas e fizeram-no subir da rocha.

14 And when he came to Lehi, the Philistines came out, meeting him with loud cries; then the spirit of the Lord came rushing on him, and the cords on his arms became like grass which has been burned with fire, and the bands came falling off his hands.
14 E, vindo ele a Leí, os filisteus lhe saíram ao encontro, jubilando; porém o Espírito do SENHOR possantemente se apossou dele, e as cordas que ele tinha nos braços se tornaram como fios de linho que estão queimados, e as suas amarraduras se desfizeram das suas mãos.

15 And taking up the mouth-bone of an ass newly dead, which he saw by chance on the earth, he put to death a thousand men with it.
15 E achou uma queixada fresca de um jumento, e estendeu a sua mão, e tomou-a, e feriu com ela mil homens.

16 And Samson said, With a red ass’s mouth-bone I have made them red with blood, with a red ass’s mouth-bone I have sent destruction on a thousand men.
16 Então, disse Sansão: Com uma queixada de jumento um montão, dois montões; com uma queixada de jumento feri a mil homens.

17 And having said these words, he let the mouth-bone go out of his hand; so that place was named Ramath-lehi.
17 E aconteceu que, acabando ele de falar, lançou a queixada da sua mão e chamou àquele lugar Ramate-Leí.

18 After this, he was in great need of water, and crying out to the Lord, he said, You have given this great salvation by the hand of your servant, and now need of water will be my death; and I will be given into the hands of this people who are without circumcision.
18 E, como tivesse grande sede, clamou ao SENHOR e disse: Pela mão do teu servo tu deste esta grande salvação; morrerei eu, pois, agora de sede e cairei na mão destes incircuncisos?

19 Then God made a crack in the hollow rock in Lehi and water came out of it; and after drinking, his spirit came back to him and he was strong again; so that place was named En-hakkore; it is in Lehi to this day.
19 Então, o SENHOR fendeu a caverna que estava em Leí; e saiu dela água, e bebeu; e o seu espírito tornou, e reviveu; pelo que chamou o seu nome: A Fonte Do Que Clama, a qual está em Leí até ao dia de hoje.

20 And he was judge of Israel in the days of the Philistines for twenty years.
20 E julgou a Israel, nos dias dos filisteus, vinte anos.

Judges 16

1 Now Samson went to Gaza, and there he saw a loose woman and went in to her.
1 E foi-se Sansão a Gaza, e viu ali uma mulher prostituta, e entrou a ela.

2 And it was said to the Gazites, Samson is here. So they went round, watching for him all day at the doorway of the town, but at night they kept quiet, saying, When daylight comes we will put him to death.
2 E foi dito aos gazitas: Sansão entrou aqui. Foram, pois, em roda e toda a noite lhe puseram espias à porta da cidade; porém toda a noite estiveram sossegados, dizendo: Até à luz da manhã esperaremos; então, o mataremos.

3 And Samson was there till the middle of the night; then he got up, and took a grip on the doors of the town, pulling them up, together with their two supports and their locks, and put them on his back and took them up to the top of the hill in front of Hebron.
3 Porém Sansão deitou-se até à meia-noite, e à meia-noite se levantou, e travou das portas da entrada da cidade com ambas as umbreiras, e juntamente com a tranca as tomou, pondo-as sobre os ombros; e levou-as para cima, até ao cume do monte que está defronte de Hebrom.

4 Now after this, he was in love with a woman in the valley of Sorek, named Delilah.
4 E, depois disto, aconteceu que se afeiçoou a uma mulher do vale de Soreque, cujo nome era Dalila.

5 And the chiefs of the Philistines came up to her, and said to her, Make use of your power over him and see what is the secret of his great strength, and how we may get the better of him, and put bands on him, so that we may make him feeble; and every one of us will give you eleven hundred shekels of silver.
5 Então, os príncipes dos filisteus subiram a ela e lhe disseram: Persuade-o e vê em que consiste a sua grande força e com que poderíamos assenhorear-nos dele e amarrá-lo, para assim o afligirmos; e te daremos cada um mil e cem moedas de prata.

6 So Delilah said to Samson, Make clear to me now what is the secret of your great strength, and how you may be put in bands and made feeble.
6 Disse, pois, Dalila a Sansão: Declara-me, peço-te, em que consiste a tua grande força e com que poderias ser amarrado para te poderem afligir.

7 And Samson said to her, If seven new bow-cords which have never been made dry are knotted round me, I will become feeble and will be like any other man.
7 Disse-lhe Sansão: Se me amarrassem com sete vergas de vimes frescos, que ainda não estivessem secos, então, me enfraqueceria e seria como qualquer outro homem.

8 So the chiefs of the Philistines gave her seven new bow-cords which had never been made dry, and she had them tightly knotted round him.
8 Então, os príncipes dos filisteus lhe trouxeram sete vergas de vimes frescos, que ainda não estavam secos; e amarrou-o com elas.

9 Now she had men waiting secretly in the inner room; and she said to him, The Philistines are on you, Samson. And the cords were broken by him as a twist of thread is broken when touched by a flame. So the secret of his strength did not come to light.
9 E os espias estavam assentados com ela numa câmara. Então, ela lhe disse: Os filisteus vêm sobre ti, Sansão. Então, quebrou as vergas de vimes, como se quebra o fio da estopa ao cheiro do fogo; assim, não se soube em que consistia a sua força.

10 Then Delilah said to Samson, See, you have been making sport of me with false words; now, say truly how may you be put in bands?
10 Então, disse Dalila a Sansão: Eis que zombaste de mim e me disseste mentiras; ora, declara-me, agora, com que poderias ser amarrado.

11 And he said to her, If they only put round me new thick cords which have never been used, then I will become feeble and will be like any other man.
11 E ele lhe disse: Se me amarrassem fortemente com cordas novas, com que se não houvesse feito obra nenhuma, então, me enfraqueceria e seria como qualquer outro homem.

12 So Delilah took new thick cords, knotting them tightly round him, and said to him, The Philistines are on you, Samson. And men were waiting secretly in the inner room. And the cords were broken off his arms like threads.
12 Então, Dalila tomou cordas novas, e o amarrou com elas, e disse-lhe: Os filisteus vêm sobre ti, Sansão. E os espias estavam assentados numa câmara. Então, as quebrou de seus braços, como um fio.

13 Then Delilah said to Samson, Up to now you have made sport of me with false words; now say truly, how may you be put in bands? And he said to her, If you get the seven twists of my hair worked into the cloth you are making and fixed with the pin, I will become feeble and will be like any other man.
13 E disse Dalila a Sansão: Até agora zombaste de mim e me disseste mentiras; declara-me pois, agora com que poderias ser amarrado? E ele lhe disse: Se teceres sete tranças dos cabelos da minha cabeça com os liços da teia.

14 So while he was sleeping she got the seven twists of his hair worked into her cloth and fixed with the pin, and said to him, The Philistines are on you, Samson. Then awaking from his sleep, he got up quickly, pulling up cloth and machine together.
14 E ela as fixou com uma estaca e disse-lhe: Os filisteus vêm sobre ti, Sansão. Então, despertou do seu sono e arrancou a estaca das tranças tecidas, juntamente com o liço da teia.

15 And she said to him, Why do you say you are my lover when your heart is not mine? Three times you have made sport of me, and have not made clear to me the secret of your great strength.
15 Então, ela lhe disse: Como dirás: Tenho-te amor, não estando comigo o teu coração? Já três vezes zombaste de mim e ainda me não declaraste em que consiste a tua força.

16 So day after day she gave him no peace, for ever questioning him till his soul was troubled to death.
16 E sucedeu que, importunando-o ela todos os dias com as suas palavras e molestando-o, a sua alma se angustiou até à morte.

17 And opening all his heart to her, he said to her, My head has never been touched by a blade, for I have been separate to God from the day of my birth: if my hair is cut off, then my strength will go from me and I will become feeble, and will be like any other man.
17 E descobriu-lhe todo o seu coração e disse-lhe: Nunca subiu navalha à minha cabeça, porque sou nazireu de Deus, desde o ventre de minha mãe; se viesse a ser rapado, ir-se-ia de mim a minha força, e me enfraqueceria e seria como todos os mais homens.

18 And when Delilah saw that he had let her see into his heart, she sent word to the chiefs of the Philistines saying, Come up this time, for he has let out all his heart to me. Then the chiefs of the Philistines came to her, with the money in their hands.
18 Vendo, pois, Dalila que já lhe descobrira todo o seu coração, enviou e chamou os príncipes dos filisteus, dizendo: Subi esta vez, porque, agora, me descobriu ele todo o seu coração. E os príncipes dos filisteus subiram a ela e trouxeram o dinheiro na sua mão.

19 And she made him go to sleep on her knees; and she sent for a man and had his seven twists of hair cut off; and while it was being done he became feeble and his strength went from him.
19 Então, ela o fez dormir sobre os seus joelhos, e chamou a um homem, e rapou-lhe as sete tranças do cabelo de sua cabeça; e começou a afligi-lo, e retirou-se dele a sua força.

20 Then she said, The Philistines are on you, Samson. And awaking from his sleep, he said, I will go out as at other times, shaking myself free. But he was not conscious that the Lord had gone from him.
20 E disse ela: Os filisteus vêm sobre ti, Sansão. E despertou do seu sono e disse: Sairei ainda esta vez como dantes e me livrarei. Porque ele não sabia que já o SENHOR se tinha retirado dele.

21 So the Philistines took him and put out his eyes; then they took him down to Gaza, and, chaining him with bands of brass, put him to work crushing grain in the prison-house.
21 Então, os filisteus pegaram nele, e lhe arrancaram os olhos, e fizeram-no descer a Gaza, e amarraram-no com duas cadeias de bronze, e andava ele moendo no cárcere.

22 But the growth of his hair was starting again after it had been cut off.
22 E o cabelo da sua cabeça lhe começou a crescer, como quando foi rapado.

23 And the chiefs of the Philistines came together to make a great offering to Dagon their god, and to be glad; for they said, Our god has given into our hands Samson our hater.
23 Então, os príncipes dos filisteus se ajuntaram para oferecerem um grande sacrifício ao seu deus Dagom e para se alegrarem e diziam: Nosso deus nos entregou nas mãos a Sansão, nosso inimigo.

24 And when the people saw him, they gave praise to their god; for they said, Our god has given into our hands the one who was fighting against us, who made our country waste, and who put great numbers of us to death.
24 Semelhantemente, vendo-o o povo, louvavam ao seu deus, porque diziam: Nosso deus nos entregou nas mãos o nosso inimigo, e o que destruía a nossa terra, e o que multiplicava os nossos mortos.

25 Now when their hearts were full of joy, they said, Send for Samson to make sport for us. And they sent for Samson out of the prison-house, and he made sport before them; and they put him between the pillars.
25 E sucedeu que, alegrando-se-lhes o coração, disseram: Chamai Sansão, para que brinque diante de nós. E chamaram Sansão do cárcere, e brincou diante deles, e fizeram-no estar em pé entre as colunas.

26 And Samson said to the boy who took him by the hand, Let me put my hand on the pillars supporting the house, so that I may put my back against them.
26 Então, disse Sansão ao moço que o tinha pela mão: Guia-me para que apalpe as colunas em que se sustém a casa, para que me encoste a elas.

27 Now the house was full of men and women; and all the lords of the Philistines were there; and about three thousand men and women were on the roof, looking on while Samson made sport.
27 Ora, estava a casa cheia de homens e mulheres; e também ali estavam todos os príncipes dos filisteus, e sobre o telhado havia alguns três mil homens e mulheres, que estavam vendo brincar Sansão.

28 And Samson, crying out to the Lord, said, O Lord God, do have me now in mind, and do make me strong only this once, O God, so that I may take one last payment from the Philistines for my two eyes.
28 Então, Sansão clamou ao SENHOR e disse: Senhor JEOVÁ, peço-te que te lembres de mim e esforça-me agora, só esta vez, ó Deus, para que de uma vez me vingue dos filisteus, pelos meus dois olhos.

29 Then Samson put his arms round the two middle pillars supporting the house, putting his weight on them, on one with his right hand and on the other with his left.
29 Abraçou-se, pois, Sansão com as duas colunas do meio, em que se sustinha a casa, e arrimou-se sobre elas, com a sua mão direita numa e com a sua esquerda na outra.

30 And Samson said, Let death overtake me with the Philistines. And he put out all his strength, and the house came down on the chiefs and on all the people who were in it. So the dead whom he sent to destruction by his death were more than all those on whom he had sent destruction in his life.
30 E disse Sansão: Morra eu com os filisteus! E inclinou-se com força, e a casa caiu sobre os príncipes e sobre todo o povo que nela havia; e foram mais os mortos que matou na sua morte do que os que matara na sua vida.

31 Then his brothers and his father’s people came down and took him up and put his body to rest in the earth between Zorah and Eshtaol in the resting-place of Manoah his father. And he had been judge of Israel for twenty years.
31 Então, seus irmãos desceram, e toda a casa de seu pai, e tomaram-no, e subiram com ele, e sepultaram-no entre Zorá e Estaol, no sepulcro de Manoá, seu pai; e julgou ele a Israel vinte anos.

Judges 17

1 Now there was a man of the hill-country of Ephraim named Micah.
1 E havia um homem da montanha de Efraim cujo nome era Mica,

2 And he said to his mother, The eleven hundred shekels of silver which were taken from you, about which you took an oath and said in my hearing, I have given this silver to the Lord from my hand for myself, to make a pictured image and a metal image: see, I have the silver, for I took it: so now I will give it back to you. And his mother said, May the blessing of the Lord be on my son.
2 o qual disse à sua mãe: As mil e cem moedas de prata que te foram tiradas, por cuja causa deitavas maldições e também as disseste em meus ouvidos, eis que esse dinheiro eu o tenho, eu o tomei. Então, disse sua mãe: Bendito seja meu filho do SENHOR.

3 And he gave back the eleven hundred shekels of silver to his mother, and his mother said, I have made the silver holy to the Lord from me for my son, to make a pictured image and a metal image.
3 Assim, restituiu as mil e cem moedas de prata à sua mãe; porém sua mãe disse: Inteiramente tenho dedicado este dinheiro da minha mão ao SENHOR para meu filho, para fazer uma imagem de escultura e de fundição; de sorte que agora to tornarei a dar.

4 So he gave the silver back to his mother. Then his mother took two hundred shekels of silver and gave them to a metal-worker who made a pictured image and a metal image from them: and it was in the house of Micah.
4 Porém ele restituiu aquele dinheiro a sua mãe, e sua mãe tomou duzentas moedas de prata e as deu ao ourives, o qual fez delas uma imagem de escultura e de fundição, e esteve em casa de Mica.

5 And the man Micah had a house of gods; and he made an ephod and family gods and put one of his sons in the position of priest.
5 E tinha este homem, Mica, uma casa de deuses, e fez um éfode e terafins, e consagrou a um de seus filhos, para que lhe fosse por sacerdote.

6 In those days there was no king in Israel: every man did as seemed right to him.
6 Naqueles dias, não havia rei em Israel; cada qual fazia o que parecia direito aos seus olhos.

7 Now there was a young man living in Beth-lehem-judah, of the family of Judah and a Levite, who was not a townsman of the place.
7 E havia um jovem de Belém de Judá, da tribo de Judá, que era levita e peregrinava ali.

8 And he went away from the town of Beth-lehem-judah, looking for somewhere to make his living-place; and on his journey he came to the hill-country of Ephraim, to the house of Micah.
8 E este homem partiu da cidade de Belém de Judá para peregrinar onde quer que achasse comodidade; chegando ele, pois, à montanha de Efraim, até à casa de Mica, seguindo o seu caminho,

9 And Micah said to him, Where do you come from? And he said to him, I am a Levite from Beth-lehem-judah, and I am looking for a living-place.
9 disse-lhe Mica: De onde vens? E ele lhe disse: Sou levita de Belém de Judá e vou peregrinar aonde quer que achar comodidade.

10 Then Micah said to him, Make your living-place with me, and be a father and a priest to me, and I will give you ten shekels of silver a year and your clothing and food.
10 Então, lhe disse Mica: Fica comigo e sê-me por pai e sacerdote; e cada ano te darei dez moedas de prata, e vestuário, e o teu sustento. E o levita entrou.

11 And the Levite said he would make his living-place with the man, and he became to him as one of his sons.
11 E consentiu o levita em ficar com aquele homem; e este jovem lhe foi como um de seus filhos.

12 And Micah gave the position to the Levite, and the young man became his priest, and was in the house of Micah.
12 E consagrou Mica ao levita, e aquele jovem lhe foi por sacerdote; e esteve em casa de Mica.

13 Then Micah said, Now I am certain that the Lord will do me good, seeing that the Levite has become my priest.
13 Então, disse Mica: Agora sei que o SENHOR me fará bem, porquanto tenho um levita por sacerdote.

Judges 18

1 In those days there was no king in Israel, and in those days the Danites were looking for a heritage for themselves, to be their living-place; for up to that time no distribution of land had been made to them among the tribes of Israel.
1 Naqueles dias, não havia rei em Israel, e nos mesmos dias a tribo dos danitas buscava para si herança para habitar; porquanto até àquele dia entre as tribos de Israel lhe não havia caído em herança bastante sorte.

2 So the children of Dan sent five men from among their number, strong men, from Zorah and from Eshtaol, to take a look at the land and make a search through it; and they said to them, Go and make a search through the land; and they came to the hill-country of Ephraim, to the house of Micah, where they made a stop for the night.
2 E enviaram os filhos de Dã da sua tribo cinco homens dos seus confins, homens valorosos, de Zorá e de Estaol, a espiar e rastejar a terra; e lhes disseram: Ide, rastejai a terra. E vieram à montanha de Efraim, até à casa de Mica, e passaram ali a noite.

3 When they were near the house of Micah, hearing a voice which was not strange to them, that of the young Levite, they went out of their road to his place, and said to him, How did you come here? and what are you doing in this place? and why are you here?
3 E, quando eles estavam junto da casa de Mica, conheceram a voz do jovem, do levita; e chegaram-se para lá e lhe disseram: Quem te trouxe aqui, que fazes aqui e que é o que tens aqui?

4 And he said to them, This is what Micah did for me, and he gave me payment and I became his priest.
4 E ele lhes disse: Assim e assim me tem feito Mica; pois me tem assalariado, e eu lhe sirvo de sacerdote.

5 Then they said, Do get directions from God for us, to see if the journey on which we are going will have a good outcome.
5 Então, lhe disseram: Ora, pergunta a Deus, para que possamos saber se prosperará o caminho que levamos.

6 And the priest said to them, Go in peace: your way is guided by the Lord.
6 E disse-lhes o sacerdote: Ide em paz; o caminho que levardes está perante o SENHOR.

7 Then the five men went on their way and came to Laish and saw the people who were there, living without thought of danger, like the Zidonians, quiet and safe; for they had everything on earth for their needs, and they were far from the Zidonians and had no business with Aram.
7 Então, foram-se aqueles cinco homens e vieram a Laís; e viram que o povo que havia no meio dela estava seguro, conforme o costume dos sidônios, quieto e confiado; nem havia possessor algum do reino que, por coisa alguma, envergonhasse a alguém naquela terra; também estavam longe dos sidônios e não tinham que fazer com ninguém.

8 So they came back to their brothers in Zorah and Eshtaol, and their brothers said to them, What news have you?
8 Então, voltaram a seus irmãos, a Zorá e a Estaol; e seus irmãos lhes disseram: Que dizeis vós?

9 And they said, Up! and let us go against Laish; for we have seen the land, and it is very good: why are you doing nothing? Do not be slow to go in and take the land for your heritage.
9 E eles disseram: Levantai-vos, e subamos a eles; porque examinamos a terra, e eis que é muitíssimo boa; pois estareis tranqüilos? Não sejais preguiçosos em irdes para entrar a possuir esta terra.

10 When you come there you will come to a people living without thought of danger; and the land is wide, and God has given it into your hands: a place where there is everything on earth for man’s needs.
10 Quando lá chegardes, vereis um povo confiado, e a terra é larga de extensão; porque Deus vo-la entregou na mão; lugar em que não há falta de coisa alguma que há na terra.

11 So six hundred men of the Danites from Zorah and Eshtaol went out armed with instruments of war.
11 Então, partiram dali, da tribo dos danitas, de Zorá e de Estaol, seiscentos homens armados de armas de guerra.

12 And they went up and put up their tents in Kiriath-jearim in Judah: so that place is named Mahaneh-dan to this day. It is to the west of Kiriath-jearim.
12 E subiram e acamparam-se em Quiriate-Jearim, em Judá; pelo que chamaram a este lugar Maané-Dã, até ao dia de hoje; eis que está por detrás de Quiriate-Jearim.

13 From there they went on to the hill-country of Ephraim and came to the house of Micah.
13 E dali passaram à montanha de Efraim; e vieram até à casa de Mica.

14 Then the five men who had gone to make a search through the country of Laish, said to their brothers, Have you knowledge that in these houses there is an ephod and family gods and a pictured image and a metal image? So now you see what to do.
14 Então, responderam os cinco homens que foram espiar a terra de Laís e disseram a seus irmãos: Sabeis vós também que naquelas casas há um éfode, e terafins, e uma imagem de escultura, e uma de fundição. Vede, pois, agora, o que haveis de fazer.

15 And turning from their road they came to the house of the young Levite, the house of Micah, and said to him, Is it well with you?
15 Então, foram para lá, e vieram à casa do jovem, o levita, em casa de Mica, e o saudaram.

16 And the six hundred armed men of the Danites took their places by the doorway.
16 E os seiscentos homens, que eram dos filhos de Dã, armados de suas armas de guerra, ficaram à entrada da porta.

17 Then the five men who had gone to make a search through the land, went in and took the pictured image and the ephod and the family gods and the metal image; and the priest was by the doorway with the six hundred armed men.
17 Porém, subindo os cinco homens, que foram espiar a terra, entraram nela, e tomaram a imagem de escultura, e o éfode, e os terafins, e a imagem de fundição, ficando o sacerdote em pé à entrada da porta, com os seiscentos homens que estavam armados com as armas de guerra.

18 And when they went into Micah’s house and took out the pictured image and the ephod and the family gods and the metal image, the priest said to them, What are you doing?
18 Entrando eles, pois, em casa de Mica e tomando a imagem de escultura, e o éfode, e os terafins, e a imagem de fundição, disse-lhes o sacerdote: Que estais fazendo?

19 And they said to him, Be quiet; say nothing, and come with us and be our father and priest; is it better for you to be priest to one man’s house or to be priest to a tribe and a family in Israel?
19 E eles lhe disseram: Cala-te, e põe a mão na boca, e vem conosco, e sê-nos por pai e sacerdote; é-te melhor que sejas sacerdote da casa de um só homem do que ser sacerdote de uma tribo e de uma geração em Israel?

20 Then the priest’s heart was glad, and he took the ephod and the family gods and the pictured image and went with the people.
20 Então, alegrou-se o coração do sacerdote, e tomou o éfode, e os terafins, e a imagem de escultura, e entrou no meio do povo.

21 So they went on their way again, putting the little ones and the oxen and the goods in front of them.
21 Assim, viraram, e partiram, e os meninos, e o gado, e a bagagem puseram diante de si.

22 When they had gone some way from the house of Micah, the men from the houses near Micah’s house came together and overtook the children of Dan,
22 E, estando já longe da casa de Mica, os homens que estavam nas casas junto à casa de Mica se reuniram e alcançaram os filhos de Dã.

23 Crying out to them. And the Danites, turning round, said to Micah, What is your trouble, that you have taken up arms?
23 E clamaram após os filhos de Dã, os quais viraram o seu rosto e disseram a Mica: Que tens, que assim convocaste esse povo?

24 And he said, You have taken my gods which I made, and my priest, and have gone away; what is there for me now? Why then do you say to me, What is your trouble?
24 Então, ele disse: Os meus deuses, que eu fiz, me tomastes, juntamente com o sacerdote, e vos fostes; que mais me fica agora? Como, pois, me dizeis: Que é o que tens?

25 And the children of Dan said to him, Say no more, or men of bitter spirit may make an attack on you, causing loss of your life and the lives of your people.
25 Porém os filhos de Dã lhe disseram: Não nos faças ouvir a tua voz, para que, porventura, homens de ânimo amargoso não se lancem sobre vós, e tu percas a tua vida e a vida dos da tua casa.

26 Then the children of Dan went on their way; and when Micah saw that they were stronger than he, he went back to his house.
26 Assim, seguiram o seu caminho os filhos de Dã, e Mica, vendo que eram mais fortes do que ele, voltou e tornou-se a sua casa.

27 And they took that which Micah had made, and his priest, and came to Laish, to a people living quietly and without thought of danger, and they put them to the sword without mercy, burning down their town.
27 Eles, pois, tomaram o que Mica tinha feito e o sacerdote que tivera, e vieram a Laís, a um povo quieto e confiado, e os feriram a fio de espada, e queimaram a cidade a fogo.

28 And they had no saviour, because it was far from Zidon, and they had no business with Aram; and it was in the valley which is the property of Beth-rehob. And building up the town again they took it for their living-place.
28 E ninguém houve que os livrasse, porquanto estavam longe de Sidom e não tinham que fazer com ninguém, e a cidade estava no vale que está junto a Bete-Reobe; depois, reedificaram a cidade e habitaram nela.

29 And they gave the town the name of Dan, after Dan their father, who was the son of Israel: though the town had been named Laish at first.
29 E chamaram o nome da cidade Dã, conforme o nome de Dã, seu pai, que nascera a Israel, sendo, porém, dantes, o nome desta cidade Laís.

30 (And the children of Dan put up the pictured image for themselves; and Jonathan, the son of Gershom, the son of Moses, and his sons were priests for the tribe of the Danites till the day when the ark was taken prisoner.)
30 E os filhos de Dã levantaram para si aquela imagem de escultura, e Jônatas, filho de Gérson, o filho de Manassés, ele e seus filhos foram sacerdotes da tribo dos danitas, até ao dia do cativeiro da terra.

31 And they put up for themselves the image which Micah had made, and it was there all the time that the house of God was in Shiloh.
31 Assim, pois, a imagem de escultura, que fizera Mica, estabeleceram para si, todos os dias que a casa de Deus esteve em Siló.

Judges 19

1 Now in those days, when there was no king in Israel, a certain Levite was living in the inmost parts of the hill-country of Ephraim, and he got for himself a servant-wife from Beth-lehem-judah.
1 Aconteceu também, naqueles dias em que não havia rei em Israel, que houve um homem levita, que, peregrinando aos lados da montanha de Efraim, tomou para si uma mulher concubina, de Belém de Judá.

2 And his servant-wife was angry with him, and went away from him to her father’s house at Beth-lehem-judah, and was there for four months.
2 Porém a sua concubina adulterou contra ele, e foi dele para casa de seu pai, a Belém de Judá, e esteve ali alguns dias, a saber, quatro meses.

3 Then her husband got up and went after her, with the purpose of talking kindly to her, and taking her back with him; he had with him his young man and two asses: and she took him into her father’s house, and her father, when he saw him, came forward to him with joy.
3 E seu marido se levantou e partiu após ela, para lhe falar conforme o seu coração e para tornar a trazê-la; e o seu moço e um par de jumentos iam com ele, e ela o levou à casa de seu pai, e, vendo-o o pai da moça, alegrou-se ao encontrar-se com ele.

4 And his father-in-law, the girl’s father, kept him there for three days; and they had food and drink and took their rest there.
4 E seu sogro, o pai da moça, o deteve e ficou com ele três dias; e comeram, e beberam, e passaram ali a noite.

5 Now on the fourth day they got up early in the morning and he made ready to go away; but the girl’s father said to his son-in-law, Take a little food to keep up your strength, and then go on your way.
5 E sucedeu que, ao quarto dia pela manhã, madrugaram, e ele levantou-se para partir; então, o pai da moça disse a seu genro: Conforta o teu coração com um bocado de pão, e depois partireis.

6 So seating themselves they had food and drink, the two of them together; and the girl’s father said to the man, If it is your pleasure, take your rest here tonight, and let your heart be glad.
6 Assentaram-se, pois, e comeram ambos juntos, e beberam; e disse o pai da moça ao homem: Peço-te que ainda esta noite queiras passá-la aqui, e alegre-se o teu coração.

7 And the man got up to go away, but his father-in-law would not let him go, so he took his rest there again for the night.
7 Porém o homem levantou-se para partir, mas seu sogro o constrangeu a tornar a passar ali a noite.

8 Then early on the morning of the fifth day he got up to go away; but the girl’s father said, Keep up your strength; so the two of them had a meal, and the man and his woman and his servant did not go till after the middle of the day.
8 E, madrugando ao quinto dia pela manhã para partir, disse o pai da moça: Ora, conforta o teu coração. E detiveram-se até já declinar o dia e ambos juntos comeram.

9 And when they got up to go away, his father-in-law, the girl’s father, said to him, Now evening is coming on, so do not go tonight; see, the day is almost gone; take your rest here and let your heart be glad, and tomorrow early, go on your way back to your house.
9 Então, o homem levantou-se para partir, ele, e a sua concubina, e o seu moço; e disse-lhe seu sogro, o pai da moça: Eis que já o dia se abaixa, e já a tarde vem entrando; peço-te que aqui passes a noite; eis que já o dia vai acabando; passa aqui a noite, e que o teu coração se alegre; e, amanhã de madrugada, levantai-vos a caminhar, e vai-te para a tua tenda.

10 But the man would not be kept there that night, and he got up and went away and came opposite to Jebus (which is Jerusalem); and he had with him the two asses, ready for travelling, and his woman.
10 Porém o homem não quis ali passar a noite, mas levantou-se, e partiu, e veio até defronte de Jebus (que é Jerusalém), e com ele o par de jumentos albardados, como também a sua concubina.

11 When they got near Jebus the day was far gone; and the servant said to his master, Now let us go from our road into this town of the Jebusites and take our night’s rest there.
11 Estando, pois, já perto de Jebus, e tendo-se já declinado muito o dia, disse o moço a seu senhor: Caminhai agora, e retiremo-nos a esta cidade dos jebuseus e passemos ali a noite.

12 But his master said to him, We will not go out of our way into a strange town, whose people are not of the children of Israel; but we will go on to Gibeah.
12 Porém disse-lhe seu senhor: Não nos retiraremos a nenhuma cidade estranha, que não seja dos filhos de Israel; mas passaremos até Gibeá.

13 And he said to his servant, Come, let us go on to one of these places, stopping for the night in Gibeah or Ramah.
13 Disse mais a seu moço: Caminha, e cheguemos a um daqueles lugares e passemos a noite em Gibeá ou em Ramá.

14 So they went on their way; and the sun went down when they were near Gibeah in the land of Benjamin.
14 Passaram, pois, adiante e caminharam, e o sol se lhes pôs junto a Gibeá, que é cidade de Benjamim.

15 And they went off the road there with the purpose of stopping for the night in Gibeah: and he went in, seating himself in the street of the town, for no one took them into his house for the night.
15 E retiraram-se para lá, para entrarem a passar a noite em Gibeá; e, entrando ele, assentou-se na praça da cidade, porque não houve quem os recolhesse em casa para ali passarem a noite.

16 Now when it was evening they saw an old man coming back from his work in the fields; he was from the hill-country of Ephraim and was living in Gibeah: but the men of the place were Benjamites.
16 E eis que um homem velho vinha à tarde do seu trabalho do campo; e era este homem da montanha de Efraim, mas peregrinava em Gibeá; eram, porém, os homens deste lugar filhos de Benjamim.

17 And when he saw the traveller in the street of the town, the old man said, Where are you going? and where do you come from?
17 Levantando ele, pois, os olhos, viu a este passageiro na praça da cidade; e disse o velho: Para onde vais e de onde vens?

18 And he said to him, We are on our way from Beth-lehem-judah to the inmost parts of the hill-country of Ephraim: I came from there and went to Beth-lehem-judah: now I am on my way back to my house, but no man will take me into his house.
18 E ele lhe disse: Passamos de Belém de Judá até aos lados da montanha de Efraim, de onde sou, porquanto fui a Belém de Judá; porém, agora, vou à casa do SENHOR, e ninguém há que me recolha em casa,

19 But we have dry grass and food for our asses, as well as bread and wine for me, and for the woman, and for the young man with us: we have no need of anything.
19 ainda que há palha e pasto para os nossos jumentos, e também pão e vinho há para mim, e para a tua serva, e para o moço que vem com os teus servos; de coisa nenhuma há falta.

20 And the old man said, Peace be with you; let all your needs be my care; only do not take your rest in the street.
20 Então, disse o velho: Paz seja contigo; tudo quanto te faltar fique ao meu cargo; tão-somente não passes a noite na praça.

21 So he took them into his house and gave the asses food; and after washing their feet they took food and drink.
21 E trouxe-o a sua casa e deu pasto aos jumentos; e, lavando-se os pés, comeram e beberam.

22 While they were taking their pleasure at the meal, the good-for-nothing men of the town came round the house, giving blows on the door; and they said to the old man, the master of the house, Send out that man who came to your house, so that we may take our pleasure with him.
22 Estando eles alegrando o seu coração, eis que os homens daquela cidade (homens que eram filhos de Belial) cercaram a casa, batendo à porta; e falaram ao velho, senhor da casa, dizendo: Tira para fora o homem que entrou em tua casa, para que o conheçamos.

23 So the man, the master of the house, went out to them, and said, No, my brothers, do not this evil thing; this man has come into my house, and you are not to do him this wrong.
23 E o homem, senhor da casa, saiu a eles e disse-lhes: Não, irmãos meus! Ora, não façais semelhante mal; já que este homem entrou em minha casa, não façais tal loucura.

24 See, here is my daughter, a virgin, and his servant-wife: I will send them out for you to take them and do with them whatever you will. But do no such thing of shame to this man.
24 Eis que a minha filha virgem e a concubina dele tirarei para fora; humilhai-as a elas e fazei delas o que parecer bem aos vossos olhos; porém a este homem não façais loucura semelhante.

25 But the men would not give ear to him: so the man took his woman and sent her out to them; and they took her by force, using her for their pleasure all night till the morning; and when dawn came they let her go.
25 Porém aqueles homens não o quiseram ouvir; então, aquele homem pegou da sua concubina e lha tirou para fora; e eles a conheceram, e abusaram dela toda a noite até pela manhã, e, subindo a alva, a deixaram.

26 Then at the dawn of day the woman came, and, falling down at the door of the man’s house where her master was, was stretched there till it was light.
26 E, ao romper da manhã, veio a mulher, e caiu à porta da casa daquele homem, onde estava seu senhor, e ficou ali até que se fez claro.

27 In the morning her master got up, and opening the door of the house went out to go on his way; and he saw his servant-wife stretched on the earth at the door of the house with her hands on the step.
27 E, levantando-se seu senhor pela manhã, e abrindo as portas da casa, e saindo a seguir o seu caminho, eis que a mulher, sua concubina, jazia à porta da casa, com as mãos sobre o limiar.

28 And he said to her, Get up and let us be going; but there was no answer; so he took her up and put her on the ass, and went on his way and came to his house.
28 E ele lhe disse: Levanta-te, e vamo-nos, porém não respondeu; então, pô-la sobre o jumento, e levantou-se o homem, e foi-se para o seu lugar.

29 And when he had come to his house, he got his knife, and took the woman, cutting her up bone by bone into twelve parts, which he sent through all Israel.
29 Chegando, pois, à sua casa, tomou um cutelo, e pegou na sua concubina, e a despedaçou com os seus ossos em doze partes e enviou-os por todos os termos de Israel.

30 And he gave orders to the men whom he sent, saying, This is what you are to say to all the men of Israel, Has ever an act like this been done from the day when the children of Israel came out of Egypt to this day? Give thought to it, turning it over in your minds, and give your opinion of it.
30 E sucedeu que cada um que tal via dizia: Nunca tal se fez, nem se viu desde o dia em que os filhos de Israel subiram da terra do Egito, até ao dia de hoje; ponderai isto no coração, considerai e falai.

Judges 20

1 Then all the children of Israel took up arms, and the people came together like one man, from Dan to Beer-sheba, and the land of Gilead, before the Lord at Mizpah.
1 Então, todos os filhos de Israel saíram, e a congregação se ajuntou, como se fora um só homem, desde Dã até Berseba, como também a terra de Gileade, ao SENHOR, em Mispa.

2 And the chiefs of the people, out of all the tribes of Israel, took their places in the meeting of the people of God, four hundred thousand footmen armed with swords.
2 E, dos cantos de todo o povo, se apresentaram de todas as tribos de Israel na congregação do povo de Deus quatrocentos mil homens de pé que arrancavam a espada.

3 (Now the children of Benjamin had word that the children of Israel had gone up to Mizpah.) And the children of Israel said, Make clear how this evil thing took place.
3 (Ouviram, pois, os filhos de Benjamim que os filhos de Israel haviam subido a Mispa.) E disseram os filhos de Israel: Falai, como sucedeu esta maldade?

4 Then the Levite, the husband of the dead woman, said in answer, I came to Gibeah in the land of Benjamin, I and my servant-wife, for the purpose of stopping there for the night.
4 Então, respondeu o homem levita, marido da mulher que fora morta, e disse: Cheguei com a minha concubina a Gibeá, cidade de Benjamim, para passar a noite;

5 And the townsmen of Gibeah came together against me, going round the house on all sides by night; it was their purpose to put me to death, and my servant-wife was violently used by them and is dead.
5 e os cidadãos de Gibeá se levantaram contra mim, e cercaram a casa de noite, e intentaram matar-me, e violaram a minha concubina, de maneira que morreu.

6 So I took her, cutting her into parts which I sent through all the country of the heritage of Israel: for they have done an act of shame in Israel.
6 Então, peguei na minha concubina, e fi-la em pedaços, e a enviei por toda a terra da herança de Israel, porquanto fizeram tal malefício e loucura em Israel.

7 Here you all are, you children of Israel; give now your suggestions about what is to be done.
7 Eis que todos sois filhos de Israel; dai aqui a vossa palavra e conselho.

8 Then all the people got up as one man and said, Not one of us will go to his tent or go back to his house:
8 Então, todo o povo se levantou como um só homem, dizendo: Nenhum de nós irá à sua tenda nem nenhum de nós se retirará à sua casa.

9 But this is what we will do to Gibeah: we will go up against it by the decision of the Lord;
9 Porém isto é o que faremos a Gibeá: procederemos contra ela por sorte.

10 And we will take ten men out of every hundred, through all the tribes of Israel, a hundred out of every thousand, a thousand out of every ten thousand, to get food for the people, so that they may give to Gibeah of Benjamin the right punishment for the act of shame they have done in Israel.
10 E tomaremos dez homens de cem de todas as tribos de Israel, e cem de mil, e mil de dez mil, para tomarem mantimento para o povo, para que, vindo eles a Gibeá de Benjamim, lhe façam conforme toda a loucura que tem feito em Israel.

11 So all the men of Israel were banded together against the town, united like one man.
11 Assim, ajuntaram-se contra esta cidade todos os homens de Israel, aliados como um só homem.

12 And the tribes of Israel sent men through all the tribe of Benjamin saying, What is this evil which has been done among you?
12 E as tribos de Israel enviaram homens por toda a tribo de Benjamim, dizendo: Que maldade é esta que se fez entre vós?

13 Now give up those good-for-nothing persons in Gibeah so that we may put them to death, clearing away the evil from Israel. But the children of Benjamin would not give ear to the voice of their brothers, the children of Israel.
13 Dai-nos, pois, agora, aqueles homens filhos de Belial, que estão em Gibeá, para que os matemos e tiremos de Israel o mal; porém os filhos de Benjamim não quiseram ouvir a voz de seus irmãos, os filhos de Israel.

14 And the children of Benjamin came together from all their towns to Gibeah, to go to war with the children of Israel.
14 Antes, os filhos de Benjamim se ajuntaram das cidades em Gibeá, para saírem a pelejar contra os filhos de Israel.

15 And the children of Benjamin who came that day from the towns were twenty-six thousand men armed with swords, in addition to the people of Gibeah, numbering seven hundred of the best fighting-men,
15 E contaram-se naquele dia os filhos de Benjamim, das cidades, vinte e seis mil homens que arrancavam a espada, afora os moradores de Gibeá, de que se contaram setecentos homens escolhidos.

16 Who were left-handed, able to send a stone at a hair without error.
16 Entre todo este povo havia setecentos homens escolhidos, canhotos, os quais todos atiravam com a funda uma pedra a um cabelo e não erravam.

17 And the men of Israel, other than Benjamin, were four hundred thousand in number, all armed with swords; they were all men of war.
17 E contaram-se dos homens de Israel, afora os de Benjamim, quatrocentos mil homens que arrancavam da espada, e todos eles, homens de guerra.

18 And they got up and went up to Beth-el to get directions from God, and the children of Israel said, Who is to be the first to go up to the fight against the children of Benjamin? And the Lord said, Judah is to go up first.
18 E levantaram-se os filhos de Israel, e subiram a Betel, e perguntaram a Deus, e disseram: Quem dentre nós subirá primeiro a pelejar contra Benjamim? E disse o SENHOR: Judá subirá primeiro.

19 So the children of Israel got up in the morning and put themselves in position against Gibeah.
19 Levantaram-se, pois, os filhos de Israel pela manhã e acamparam-se contra Gibeá.

20 And the men of Israel went out to war against Benjamin (and the men of Israel put their forces in fighting order against them at Gibeah).
20 E os homens de Israel saíram à peleja contra Benjamim; e ordenaram os homens de Israel contra eles a peleja ao pé de Gibeá.

21 Then the children of Benjamin came out from Gibeah, cutting down twenty-two thousand of the Israelites that day.
21 Então, os filhos de Benjamim saíram de Gibeá e derribaram por terra, naquele dia, vinte e dois mil homens de Israel.

22 But the people, the men of Israel, taking heart again, put their forces in order and took up the same position as on the first day.
22 Porém esforçou-se o povo dos homens de Israel, e tornaram a ordenar a peleja no lugar onde no primeiro dia a tinham ordenado.

23 Now the children of Israel went up, weeping before the Lord till evening, requesting the Lord and saying, Am I to go forward again to the fight against the children of Benjamin my brother? And the Lord said, Go up against him.
23 E subiram os filhos de Israel, e choraram perante o SENHOR até à tarde, e perguntaram ao SENHOR, dizendo: Tornar-me-ei a chegar à peleja contra os filhos de Benjamim, meu irmão? E disse o SENHOR: Subi contra ele.

24 So the children of Israel went forward against the children of Benjamin the second day.
24 Chegaram-se, pois, os filhos de Israel aos filhos de Benjamim, no dia seguinte.

25 And the second day Benjamin went out against them from Gibeah, cutting down eighteen thousand men of the children of Israel, all swordsmen.
25 Também os de Benjamim no dia seguinte lhes saíram ao encontro fora de Gibeá e derribaram ainda por terra mais dezoito mil homens, todos dos que arrancavam a espada.

26 Then all the children of Israel, and all the people, went up to Beth-el, weeping and waiting there before the Lord, going without food all day till evening, and offering burned offerings and peace-offerings before the Lord.
26 Então, todos os filhos de Israel, todo o povo, subiram, e vieram a Betel, e choraram, e estiveram ali perante o SENHOR, e jejuaram aquele dia até à tarde, e ofereceram holocaustos e ofertas pacíficas perante o SENHOR.

27 And the children of Israel made request to the Lord, (for the ark of the agreement of the Lord was there in those days,
27 E os filhos de Israel perguntaram ao SENHOR (porquanto a arca do concerto de Deus estava ali naqueles dias;

28 And Phinehas, the son of Eleazar, the son of Aaron, was in his place before it,) and said, Am I still to go on with the fight against the children of Benjamin my brother, or am I to give it up? And the Lord said, Go on; for tomorrow I will give him into your hands.
28 e Finéias, filho de Eleazar, filho de Arão, estava perante ele naqueles dias), dizendo: Sairei ainda mais a pelejar contra os filhos de Benjamim, meu irmão, ou pararei? E disse o SENHOR: Subi, que amanhã eu to entregarei na mão.

29 So Israel put men secretly all round Gibeah to make a surprise attack on it.
29 Então, Israel pôs emboscadas em redor de Gibeá.

30 And the children of Israel went up against the children of Benjamin on the third day, and put themselves in fighting order against Gibeah as before.
30 E subiram os filhos de Israel, ao terceiro dia, contra os filhos de Benjamim e ordenaram a peleja junto a Gibeá, como das outras vezes.

31 And the children of Benjamin went out against the people, moving away from the town; and as before, at their first attack, they put to death about thirty men of Israel on the highways, of which one goes up to Beth-el and the other to Gibeah, and in the open country.
31 Então, os filhos de Benjamim saíram ao encontro do povo, e desviaram-se da cidade, e começaram a ferir alguns do povo, atravessando-os, como das outras vezes, pelos caminhos (um dos quais sobe para Betel, e o outro, para Gibeá pelo campo), alguns trinta dos homens de Israel.

32 And the children of Benjamin said, They are giving way before us as at first. But the children of Israel said, Let us go in flight and get them away from the town, into the highways.
32 Então, os filhos de Benjamim disseram: Vão derrotados diante de nós como dantes. Porém os filhos de Israel disseram: Fujamos e desviemo-los da cidade para os caminhos.

33 So all the men of Israel got up and put themselves in fighting order at Baal-tamar: and those who had been waiting secretly to make a surprise attack came rushing out of their place on the west of Geba.
33 Então, todos os homens de Israel se levantaram do seu lugar e ordenaram a peleja em Baal-Tamar; e a emboscada de Israel saiu do seu lugar, da caverna de Gibeá.

34 And they came in front of Gibeah, ten thousand of the best men in all Israel, and the fighting became more violent; but the children of Benjamin were not conscious that evil was coming on them.
34 E dez mil homens escolhidos de todo o Israel vieram contra Gibeá, e a peleja se engravesceu; porém eles não sabiam que o mal lhes tocaria.

35 Then the Lord sent sudden fear on Benjamin before Israel; and that day the children of Israel put to death twenty-five thousand, one hundred men of Benjamin, all of them swordsmen.
35 Então, feriu o SENHOR a Benjamim diante de Israel; e desfizeram os filhos de Israel, naquele dia, vinte e cinco mil e cem homens de Benjamim, todos dos que arrancavam espada.

36 So the children of Benjamin saw that they were overcome: and the men of Israel had given way before Benjamin, putting their faith in the watchers who were to make the surprise attack on Gibeah.
36 E viram os filhos de Benjamim que estavam feridos, porque os homens de Israel deram lugar aos benjamitas, porquanto estavam confiados na emboscada que haviam posto contra Gibeá.

37 And the watchers, rushing on Gibeah and overrunning it, put all the town to the sword without mercy.
37 E a emboscada se apressou e acometeu a Gibeá; e a emboscada arremeteu contra ela e feriu a fio de espada toda a cidade.

38 Now the sign fixed between the men of Israel and those making the surprise attack was that when they made a pillar of smoke go up from the town,
38 E os homens de Israel tinham um sinal determinado com a emboscada, que era fazerem levantar da cidade uma grande nuvem de fumaça.

39 The men of Israel were to make a turn about in the fight. And Benjamin had overcome and put to death about thirty of the men of Israel, and were saying, Certainly they are falling back before us as in the first fight.
39 Viraram-se, pois, os homens de Israel na peleja, e já Benjamim começava a ferir, dos homens de Israel, quase trinta homens, atravessando-os, porque diziam: Já infalivelmente estão derrotados diante de nós, como na peleja passada.

40 Then the sign went up out of the town in the pillar of smoke, and the Benjamites, turning back, saw all the town going up in smoke to heaven.
40 Então, a nuvem de fumaça se começou a levantar da cidade, como uma coluna de fumaça; e, virando-se Benjamim a olhar para trás de si, eis que a fumaça da cidade subia ao céu.

41 And the men of Israel had made a turn about, and the men of Benjamin were overcome with fear, for they saw that evil had overtaken them.
41 E os homens de Israel viraram o rosto, e os homens de Benjamim pasmaram, porque viram que o mal lhes tocaria.

42 So turning their backs on the men of Israel, they went in the direction of the waste land; but the fight overtook them; and those who came out of the town were heading them off and putting them to the sword.
42 E viraram as costas diante dos homens de Israel, para o caminho do deserto; porém a peleja os apertou, e os das cidades os desfizeram no meio deles.

43 And crushing Benjamin down, they went after them, driving them from Nohah as far as the east side of Gibeah.
43 E cercaram a Benjamim, e o seguiram, e à vontade o pisaram, até diante de Gibeá, para o nascente do sol.

44 Eighteen thousand men of Benjamin came to their death, all strong men of war.
44 E caíram de Benjamim dezoito mil homens, todos estes sendo homens valentes.

45 And turning, they went in flight to the rock of Rimmon in the waste land: and on the highways five thousand of them were cut off by the men of Israel, who, pushing on hard after them to Geba, put to death two thousand more.
45 Então, viraram as costas e fugiram para o deserto, à penha de Rimom; apanharam ainda deles pelos caminhos uns cinco mil homens, e de perto os seguiram até Gidom, e feriram deles dois mil homens.

46 So twenty-five thousand of the swordsmen of Benjamin came to their end that day, all strong men of war.
46 E todos os que de Benjamim caíram, naquele dia, foram vinte e cinco mil homens que arrancavam a espada, todos eles homens valentes.

47 But six hundred men, turning back, went in flight to the rock of Rimmon in the waste land, and were living on the rock of Rimmon for four months.
47 Porém seiscentos homens viraram as costas, e fugiram para o deserto, à penha de Rimom, e ficaram na penha de Rimom quatro meses.

48 And the men of Israel, turning again against the children of Benjamin, put to the sword without mercy all the towns and the cattle and everything there was, burning every town which came into their hands.
48 E os homens de Israel voltaram para os filhos de Benjamim, e os feriram a fio de espada, desde os homens da cidade até aos animais, tudo quanto ali se achava, e também a todas as cidades quantas se acharam puseram a fogo.

Judges 21

1 Now the men of Israel had taken an oath in Mizpah, saying, Not one of us will give his daughter as a wife to Benjamin.
1 Ora, tinham jurado os homens de Israel em Mispa, dizendo: Nenhum de nós dará sua filha por mulher aos benjamitas.

2 And the people came to Beth-el, waiting there till evening before God, and gave themselves up to bitter weeping.
2 Veio, pois, o povo a Betel, e ali ficaram até à tarde diante de Deus, e levantaram a sua voz, e prantearam com grande pranto.

3 And they said, O Lord, the God of Israel, why has this fate come on Israel, that today one tribe has been cut off from Israel?
3 E disseram: Ah! SENHOR, Deus de Israel, por que sucedeu isto em Israel, que hoje falte uma tribo em Israel?

4 Then on the day after, the people got up early and made an altar there, offering burned offerings and peace-offerings.
4 E sucedeu que, no dia seguinte, o povo pela manhã se levantou, e edificou ali um altar, e ofereceu holocaustos e ofertas pacíficas.

5 And the children of Israel said, Who is there among all the tribes of Israel, who did not come up to the Lord at the meeting of all Israel? For they had taken a great oath that whoever did not come up to Mizpah to the Lord was to be put to death.
5 E disseram os filhos de Israel: Quem de todas as tribos de Israel não subiu ao ajuntamento ao SENHOR? Porque se tinha feito um grande juramento acerca dos que não viessem ao SENHOR a Mispa, dizendo: Morrerá certamente.

6 And the children of Israel were moved with pity for Benjamin their brother, saying, Today one tribe has been cut off from Israel.
6 E arrependeram-se os filhos de Israel acerca de Benjamim, seu irmão, e disseram: Cortada é hoje de Israel uma tribo.

7 What are we to do about wives for those who are still living? For we have taken an oath by the Lord that we will not give them our daughters for wives.
7 Que faremos, acerca de mulheres, com os que ficaram de resto, pois nós temos jurado pelo SENHOR que nenhuma de nossas filhas lhes daríamos por mulheres?

8 And they said, Which one of the tribes of Israel did not come up to Mizpah to the Lord? And it was seen that no one had come from Jabesh-gilead to the meeting.
8 E disseram: Há alguma das tribos de Israel que não subisse ao SENHOR a Mispa? E eis que ninguém de Jabes-Gileade viera ao arraial, à congregação.

9 For when the people were numbered, not one man of the people of Jabesh-gilead was present.
9 Porquanto o povo se contou, e eis que nenhum dos moradores de Jabes-Gileade se achou ali.

10 So they (the meeting) sent twelve thousand of the best fighting-men, and gave them orders, saying, Go and put the people of Jabesh-gilead to the sword without mercy, with their women and their little ones.
10 Então, o ajuntamento enviou lá doze mil homens dos mais valentes e lhes ordenou, dizendo: Ide e a fio de espada feri aos moradores de Jabes-Gileade, e às mulheres, e aos meninos.

11 And this is what you are to do: every male, and every woman who has had sex relations with a man, you are to put to the curse, but you are to keep safe the virgins. And they did so.
11 Porém isto é o que haveis de fazer: a todo varão e a toda mulher que se houver deitado com um homem totalmente destruireis.

12 Now there were among the people of Jabesh-gilead four hundred young virgins who had never had sex relations with a man; these they took to their tents in Shiloh in the land of Canaan.
12 E acharam entre os moradores de Jabes-Gileade quatrocentas moças virgens, que não conheceram homem deitando-se com varão; e as trouxeram ao arraial, a Siló, que está na terra de Canaã.

13 And all the meeting sent to the men of Benjamin who were in the rock of Rimmon, offering them peace.
13 Então, todo o ajuntamento enviou, e falou aos filhos de Benjamim, que estavam na penha de Rimom, e lhes proclamou a paz.

14 Then Benjamin came back; and they gave them the women whom they had kept from death among the women of Jabesh-gilead: but still there were not enough for them.
14 E, ao mesmo tempo, voltaram os benjamitas, e deram-lhes as mulheres que haviam guardado com vida, das mulheres de Jabes-Gileade; porém estas ainda lhes não bastaram.

15 And the people were moved with pity for Benjamin, because the Lord had let his wrath loose on the tribes of Israel.
15 Então, o povo se arrependeu por causa de Benjamim, porquanto o SENHOR tinha feito abertura nas tribos de Israel.

16 Then the responsible men of the meeting said, What are we to do about wives for the rest of them, seeing that the women of Benjamin are dead?
16 E disseram os anciãos do ajuntamento: Que faremos acerca de mulheres para os que ficaram de resto, pois estão destruídas as mulheres de Benjamim?

17 And they said, How is the rest of Benjamin to be given offspring so that one tribe of Israel may not be put out of existence,
17 Disseram mais: A herança dos que ficaram de resto é de Benjamim, e nenhuma tribo de Israel deve ser destruída.

18 Seeing that we may not give them our daughters as wives? For the children of Israel had taken an oath, saying, Cursed is he who gives a wife to Benjamin.
18 Porém nós não lhes poderemos dar mulheres de nossas filhas, porque os filhos de Israel juraram, dizendo: Maldito aquele que der mulher aos benjamitas.

19 And they said, See, every year there is a feast of the Lord in Shiloh, which is to the north of Beth-el, on the east side of the highway which goes up from Beth-el to Shechem, and on the south of Lebonah.
19 Então, disseram: Eis que, de ano em ano, há solenidade do SENHOR, em Siló, que se celebra para o norte de Betel, da banda do nascente do sol, pelo caminho alto que sobe de Betel a Siquém, e para o sul de Lebona.

20 And they said to the men of Benjamin, Go into the vine-gardens, waiting there secretly,
20 E mandaram aos filhos de Benjamim, dizendo: Ide e emboscai-vos nas vinhas.

21 And watching; and if the daughters of Shiloh come out to take part in the dances, then come from the vine-gardens and take a wife for every one of you from among the daughters of Shiloh, and go back to the land of Benjamin.
21 E olhai, e eis aí, saindo as filhas de Siló a dançar em ranchos, saí vós das vinhas, e arrebatai cada um sua mulher das filhas de Siló, e ide-vos à terra de Benjamim.

22 And when their fathers or their brothers come and make trouble, you are to say to them, Give them to us as an act of grace; for we did not take them as wives for ourselves in war; and if you yourselves had given them to us you would have been responsible for the broken oath.
22 E será que, quando seus pais ou seus irmãos vierem a litigar conosco, nós lhes diremos: Por amor de nós, tende compaixão deles, pois nesta guerra não tomamos mulheres para cada um deles porque não lhas destes vós, para que agora ficásseis culpados.

23 So the men of Benjamin did this, and got wives for themselves for every one of their number, taking them away by force from the dance; then they went back to their heritage, building up their towns and living in them.
23 E os filhos de Benjamim o fizeram assim e levaram mulheres conforme o número deles, das que arrebataram dos ranchos que dançavam; e foram-se, e voltaram à sua herança, e reedificaram as cidades, e habitaram nelas.

24 Then the children of Israel went away from there, every man to his tribe and his family, every man went back to his heritage.
24 Também os filhos de Israel partiram, então, dali, cada um para a sua tribo e para a sua geração, e saíram dali, cada um para a sua herança.

25 In those days there was no king in Israel: every man did what seemed right to him.
25 Naqueles dias, não havia rei em Israel, porém cada um fazia o que parecia reto aos seus olhos.
