||congregantes vero Philisthim agmina sua in proelium convenerunt in Soccho Iudae et castrametati sunt inter Soccho et Azeca in finibus Dommim
Now the Philistines gathering together their troops to battle, assembled at Socho of Juda: and camped between Socho and Azeca, in the borders of Dommim.
||porro Saul et viri Israhel congregati venerunt in valle Terebinthi et direxerunt aciem ad pugnandum contra Philisthim
And Saul and the children of Israel being gathered together, came to the valley of Terebinth, and they set the army in array to fight against the Philistines.
||et Philisthim stabant super montem ex hac parte et Israhel stabat super montem ex altera parte vallisque erat inter eos
And the Philistines stood on a mountain on the one side, and Israel stood on a mountain on the other side: and there was a valley between them.
||et egressus est vir spurius de castris Philisthinorum nomine Goliath de Geth altitudinis sex cubitorum et palmo
And there went out a man baseborn from the camp of the Philistines, named Goliath, of Geth, whose height was six cubits and a span:
||et cassis aerea super caput eius et lorica hamata induebatur porro pondus loricae eius quinque milia siclorum aeris
And he had a helmet of brass upon his head, and he was clothed with a coat of mail with scales, and the weight of his coat of mail was five thousand sicles of brass:
||et ocreas aereas habebat in cruribus et clypeus aereus tegebat umeros eius
And he had greaves of brass on his legs, and a buckler of brass covered his shoulders.
||hastile autem hastae eius erat quasi liciatorium texentium ipsum autem ferrum hastae eius sescentos siclos habebat ferri et armiger eius antecedebat eum
And the staff of his spear was like a weaver's beam, and the head of his spear weighed six hundred sicles of iron: and his armourbearer went before him.
||stansque clamabat adversum falangas Israhel et dicebat eis quare venitis parati ad proelium numquid ego non sum Philistheus et vos servi Saul eligite ex vobis virum et descendat ad singulare certamen
And standing, he cried out to the bands of Israel, and said to them: Why are you come out prepared to fight? am not I a Philistine, and you the servants of Saul? Choose out a man of you, and let him come down and fight hand to hand.
||si quiverit pugnare mecum et percusserit me erimus vobis servi si autem ego praevaluero et percussero eum vos servi eritis et servietis nobis
If he be able to fight with me, and kill me, we will be servants to you: but if I prevail against him, and kill him, you shall be servants, and shall serve us.
||et aiebat Philistheus ego exprobravi agminibus Israhelis hodie date mihi virum et ineat mecum singulare certamen
And the Philistine said: I have defied the bands of Israel this day: give me a man, and let him fight with me hand to hand.
||audiens autem Saul et omnes viri israhelitae sermones Philisthei huiuscemodi stupebant et metuebant nimis
And Saul and all the Israelites hearing these words of the Philistine, were dismayed, and greatly afraid.
||David autem erat filius viri ephrathei de quo supra dictum est de Bethleem Iuda cui erat nomen Isai qui habebat octo filios et erat vir in diebus Saul senex et grandevus inter viros
Now David was the son of that Ephrathite, of Bethlehem Juda, before mentioned, whose name was Isai, who had eight sons, and was an old man in the days of Saul, and of great age among men.
||abierunt autem tres filii eius maiores post Saul in proelium et nomina trium filiorum eius qui perrexerant ad bellum Heliab primogenitus et secundus Abinadab tertiusque Samma
And his three eldest sons followed Saul to the battle: and the names of his three sons that went to the battle, were Eliab, the firstborn, and the second, Abinadab, and the third Samma:
||David autem erat minimus tribus ergo maioribus secutis Saulem
But David was the youngest. So the three eldest having followed Saul,
||abiit David et reversus est a Saul ut pasceret gregem patris sui in Bethleem
David went, and returned from Saul, to feed his father's flock at Bethlehem.
||procedebat vero Philistheus mane et vespere et stabat quadraginta diebus
Now the Philistine came out morning and evening, and presented himself forty days.
||dixit autem Isai ad David filium suum accipe fratribus tuis oephi pulentae et decem panes istos et curre in castra ad fratres tuos
And Isai said to David, his son: Take for thy brethren an ephi of frumenty, and these ten loaves, and run to the camp to thy brethren,
||et decem formellas casei has deferes ad tribunum et fratres tuos visitabis si recte agant et cum quibus ordinati sint disce
And carry these ten little cheeses to the tribune: and go see thy brethren, if they are well: and learn with whom they are placed.
||Saul autem et illi et omnes filii Israhel in valle Terebinthi pugnabant adversum Philisthim
But Saul, and they, and all the children of Israel, were in the valley of Terebinth, fighting against the Philistines.
||surrexit itaque David mane et commendavit gregem custodi et onustus abiit sicut praeceperat ei Isai et venit ad locum Magala et ad exercitum qui egressus ad pugnam vociferatus erat in certamine
David, therefore, arose in the morning, and gave the charge of the flock to the keeper: and went away loaded, as Isai had commanded him. And he came to the place of Magala, and to the army, which was going out to fight, and shouted for the battle.
||direxerat enim aciem Israhel sed et Philisthim ex adverso fuerant praeparati
For Israel had put themselves in array, and the Philistines who stood against them were prepared.
||derelinquens ergo David vasa quae adtulerat sub manu custodis ad sarcinas cucurrit ad locum certaminis et interrogabat si omnia recte agerentur erga fratres suos
And David leaving the vessels which he had brought, under the care of the keeper of the baggage, ran to the place of the battle, and asked if all things went well with his brethren.
||cumque adhuc ille loqueretur eis apparuit vir ille spurius ascendens Goliath nomine Philistheus de Geth ex castris Philisthinorum et loquente eo haec eadem verba audivit David
And as he talked with them, that baseborn man, whose name was Goliath, the Philistine, of Geth, shewed himself coming up from the camp of the Philistines: and he spoke according to the same words, and David heard them,
||omnes autem Israhelitae cum vidissent virum fugerunt a facie eius timentes eum valde
And all the Israelites, when they saw the man, fled from his face, fearing him exceedingly.
||et dixit unus quispiam de Israhel num vidisti virum hunc qui ascendit ad exprobrandum enim Israheli ascendit virum ergo qui percusserit eum ditabit rex divitiis magnis et filiam suam dabit ei et domum patris eius faciet absque tributo in Israhel
And some one of Israel said: Have you seen this man that is come up, for he is come up to defy Israel. And the man that shall slay him, the king will enrich with great riches, and will give him his daughter, and will make his father's house free from tribute in Israel.
||et ait David ad viros qui stabant secum dicens quid dabitur viro qui percusserit Philistheum hunc et tulerit obprobrium de Israhel quis est enim hic Philistheus incircumcisus qui exprobravit acies Dei viventis
And David spoke to the men that stood by him, saying: What shall be given to the man that shall kill this Philistine, and shall take away the reproach from Israel? for who is this uncircumcised Philistine, that he should defy the armies of the living God?
||referebat autem ei populus eundem sermonem dicens haec dabuntur viro qui percusserit eum
And the people answered him the same words, saying: These things shall be given to the man that shall slay him.
||quod cum audisset Heliab frater eius maior loquente eo cum aliis iratus est contra David et ait quare venisti et quare dereliquisti pauculas oves illas in deserto ego novi superbiam tuam et nequitiam cordis tui quia ut videres proelium descendisti
Now when Eliab his eldest brother heard this, when he was speaking with others, he was angry with David, and said: Why camest thou hither? and why didst thou leave those few sheep in the desert? I know thy pride, and the wickedness of thy heart: that thou art come down to see the battle.
||et dixit David quid feci numquid non verbum est
And David said: What have I done? is there not cause to speak?
||et declinavit paululum ab eo ad alium dixitque eundem sermonem et respondit ei populus verbum sicut et prius
And he turned a little aside from him to another: and said the same word. And the people answered him as before.
||audita sunt autem verba quae locutus est David et adnuntiata in conspectu Saul
And the words which David spoke were heard, and were rehearsed before Saul.
||ad quem cum fuisset adductus locutus est ei non concidat cor cuiusquam in eo ego servus tuus vadam et pugnabo adversus Philistheum
And when he was brought to Saul, he said to him. Let not any man's heart be dismayed in him: I thy servant will go, and will fight against the Philistine.
||et ait Saul ad David non vales resistere Philistheo isti nec pugnare adversum eum quia puer es hic autem vir bellator ab adulescentia sua
And Saul said to David: Thou art not able to withstand this Philistine, nor to fight against him: for thou art but a boy, but he is a warrior from his youth.
||dixitque David ad Saul pascebat servus tuus patris sui gregem et veniebat leo vel ursus tollebatque arietem de medio gregis
And David said to Saul: Thy servant kept his father's sheep, and there came a lion, or a bear, and took a ram out of the midst of the flock:
||et sequebar eos et percutiebam eruebamque de ore eorum et illi consurgebant adversum me et adprehendebam mentum eorum et suffocabam interficiebamque eos
And I pursued after them, and struck them, and delivered it out of their mouth: and they rose up against me, and I caught them by the throat, and I strangled, and killed them.
||nam et leonem et ursum interfeci ego servus tuus erit igitur et Philistheus hic incircumcisus quasi unus ex eis quia ausus est maledicere exercitum Dei viventis
For I thy servant have killed both a lion and a bear: and this uncircumcised Philistine shall be also as one of them. I will go now, and take away the reproach of the people: for who is this uncircumcised Philistine, who hath dared to curse the army of the living God?
||et ait David Dominus qui eruit me de manu leonis et de manu ursi ipse liberabit me de manu Philisthei huius dixit autem Saul ad David vade et Dominus tecum sit
And David said: The Lord who delivered me out of the paw of the lion, and out of the paw of the bear, he will deliver me out of the hand of this Philistine. And Saul said to David: Go, and the Lord be with thee.
||et induit Saul David vestimentis suis et inposuit galeam aeream super caput eius et vestivit eum lorica
And Saul clothed David with his garments, and put a helmet of brass upon his head, and armed him with a coat of mail.
||accinctus ergo David gladio eius super veste sua coepit temptare si armatus posset incedere non enim habebat consuetudinem dixitque David ad Saul non possum sic incedere quia nec usum habeo et deposuit ea
And David having girded his sword upon his armour, began to try if he could walk in armour: for he was not accustomed to it. And David said to Saul: I cannot go thus, for I am not used to it. And he laid them off,
||et tulit baculum suum quem semper habebat in manibus et elegit sibi quinque limpidissimos lapides de torrente et misit eos in peram pastoralem quam habebat secum et fundam manu tulit et processit adversum Philistheum
And he took his staff, which he had always in his hands: and chose him five smooth stones out of the brook, and put them into the shepherd's scrip, which he had with him, and he took a sling in his hand, and went forth against the Philistine.
||ibat autem Philistheus incedens et adpropinquans adversum David et armiger eius ante eum
And the Philistine came on, and drew nigh against David, and his armourbearer went before him.
||cumque inspexisset Philistheus et vidisset David despexit eum erat enim adulescens rufus et pulcher aspectu
And when the Philistine looked, and beheld David, he despised him. For he was a young man, ruddy, and of a comely countenance.
||et dixit Philistheus ad David numquid ego canis sum quod tu venis ad me cum baculo et maledixit Philistheus David in diis suis
And the Philistine said to David: Am I a dog, that thou comest to me with a staff? And the Philistine cursed David by his gods.
||dixitque ad David veni ad me et dabo carnes tuas volatilibus caeli et bestiis terrae
And he said to David: Come to me, and I will give thy flesh to the birds of the air, and to the beasts of the earth.
||dixit autem David ad Philistheum tu venis ad me cum gladio et hasta et clypeo ego autem venio ad te in nomine Domini exercituum Dei agminum Israhel quibus exprobrasti
And David said to the Philistine: Thou comest to me with a sword, and with a spear, and with a shield: but I come to thee in the name of the Lord of hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, which thou hast defied
||hodie et dabit te Dominus in manu mea et percutiam te et auferam caput tuum a te et dabo cadaver castrorum Philisthim hodie volatilibus caeli et bestiis terrae ut sciat omnis terra quia est Deus in Israhel
This day, and the Lord will deliver thee into my hand, and I will slay thee, and take away thy head from thee: and I will give the carcasses of the army of the Philistines this day to the birds of the air, and to the beasts of the earth: that all the earth may know that there is a God in Israel.
||et noverit universa ecclesia haec quia non in gladio nec in hasta salvat Dominus ipsius est enim bellum et tradet vos in manus nostras
And all this assembly shall know that the Lord saveth not with sword and spear: for it is his battle, and he will deliver you into our hands.
||cum ergo surrexisset Philistheus et veniret et adpropinquaret contra David festinavit David et cucurrit ad pugnam ex adverso Philisthei
And when the Philistine arose, and was coming, and drew nigh to meet David, David made haste, and ran to the fight to meet the Philistine.
||et misit manum suam in peram tulitque unum lapidem et funda iecit et percussit Philistheum in fronte et infixus est lapis in fronte eius et cecidit in faciem suam super terram
And he put his hand into his scrip, and took a stone, and cast it with the sling, and fetching it about, struck the Philistine in the forehead, and he fell on his face upon the earth.
||praevaluitque David adversus Philistheum in funda et in lapide percussumque Philistheum interfecit cumque gladium non haberet in manu David
And David prevailed over the Philistine, with a sling and a stone, and he struck, and slew the Philistine. And as David had no sword in his hand,
||cucurrit et stetit super Philistheum et tulit gladium eius et eduxit de vagina sua et interfecit eum praeciditque caput eius videntes autem Philisthim quod mortuus esset fortissimus eorum fugerunt
He ran, and stood over the Philistine, and took his sword, and drew it out of the sheath, and slew him, and cut off his head. And the Philistines seeing that their champion was dead, fled away.
||et consurgentes viri Israhel et Iuda vociferati sunt et persecuti Philistheos usque dum venirent in vallem et usque ad portas Accaron cecideruntque vulnerati de Philisthim in via Sarim usque ad Geth et usque Accaron
And the men of Israel and Juda rising up shouted, and pursued after the Philistines till they came to the valley and to the gates of Accaron, and there fell many wounded of the Philistines in the way of Saraim, and as far as Geth, and as far as Accaron.
||et revertentes filii Israhel postquam persecuti fuerant Philistheos invaserunt castra eorum
And the children of Israel returning, after they had pursued the Philistines, fell upon their camp.
||adsumens autem David caput Philisthei adtulit illud in Hierusalem arma vero eius posuit in tabernaculo suo
And David taking the head of the Philistine, brought it to Jerusalem: but his armour he put in his tent.
||eo autem tempore quo viderat Saul David egredientem contra Philistheum ait ad Abner principem militiae de qua stirpe descendit hic adulescens Abner dixitque Abner vivit anima tua rex si novi
Now at the time that Saul saw David going out against the Philistines, he said to Abner, the captain of the army: Of what family is this young man descended, Abner? And Abner said: As thy soul liveth, O king, I know not.
||et ait rex interroga tu cuius filius sit iste puer
And the king said: Inquire thou, whose son this young man is.
||cumque regressus esset David percusso Philistheo tulit eum Abner et introduxit coram Saul caput Philisthei habentem in manu
And when David was returned, after the Philistine was slain, Abner took him, and brought him in before Saul, with the head of the Philistine in his hand.
||et ait ad eum Saul de qua progenie es o adulescens dixitque David filius servi tui Isai Bethleemitae ego sum
And Saul said to him: Young man, of what family art thou? And David said: I am the son of thy servant Isai the Bethlehemite.
