||audivit autem filius Saul quod cecidisset Abner in Hebron et dissolutae sunt manus eius omnisque Israhel perturbatus est
And Isboseth the son of Saul heard that Abner was slain in Hebron: and his hands were weakened, and all Israel was troubled.
||duo autem viri principes latronum erant filio Saul nomen uni Baana et nomen alteri Rechab filii Remmon Berothitae de filiis Beniamin siquidem et Beroth reputata est in Beniamin
Now the son of Saul had two men captains of his bands, the name of the one was Baana, and the name of the other Rechab, the sons of Remmon a Berothite of the children of Benjamin: for Beroth also was reckoned in Benjamin.
||et fugerunt Berothitae in Getthaim fueruntque ibi advenae usque in tempus illud
And the Berothites fled into Gethaim, and were sojourners there until that time.
||erat autem Ionathan filio Saul filius debilis pedibus quinquennis enim fuit quando venit nuntius de Saul et Ionathan ex Iezrahel tollens itaque eum nutrix sua fugit cumque festinaret ut fugeret cecidit et claudus effectus est habuitque vocabulum Mifiboseth
And Jonathan the son of Saul had a son that was lame of his feet: for he was five years old when the tidings came of Saul and Jonathan from Jezrahel. And his nurse took him up and fled: and as she made haste to flee, he fell and became lame: and his name was Miphiboseth.
||venientes igitur filii Remmon Berothitae Rechab et Baana ingressi sunt fervente die domum Hisboseth qui dormiebat super stratum suum meridie
And the sons of Remmon the Berothite, Rechab and Baana coming, went into the house of Isboseth in the heat of the day: and he was sleeping upon his bed at noon. And the doorkeeper of the house, who was cleansing wheat, was fallen asleep.
||ingressi sunt autem domum adsumentes spicas tritici et percusserunt eum in inguine Rechab et Baana frater eius et fugerunt
And they entered into the house secretly taking ears of corn, and Rechab and Baana his brother stabbed him in the groin, and fled away.
||cum autem ingressi fuissent domum ille dormiebat super lectulum suum in conclavi et percutientes interfecerunt eum sublatoque capite eius abierunt per viam deserti tota nocte
For when they came into the house, he was sleeping upon his bed in a parlour, and they struck him and killed him and taking away his head they went off by the way of the wilderness, walking all night.
||et adtulerunt caput Hisboseth ad David in Hebron dixeruntque ad regem ecce caput Hisboseth filii Saul inimici tui qui quaerebat animam tuam et dedit Dominus domino meo regi ultiones hodie de Saul et de semine eius
And they brought the head of Isboseth to David to Hebron: and they said to the king: Behold the head of Isboseth the son of Saul thy enemy who sought thy life: and the Lord hath revenged my lord the king this day of Saul, and of his seed.
||respondens autem David Rechab et Baana fratri eius filiis Remmon Berothei dixit ad eos vivit Dominus qui eruit animam meam de omni angustia
But David answered Rechab, and Baana his brother, the sons of Remmon the Berothite, and said to them: As the Lord liveth, who hath delivered my soul out of all distress,
||quoniam eum qui adnuntiaverat mihi et dixerat mortuus est Saul qui putabat se prospera nuntiare tenui et occidi in Siceleg cui oportebat me dare mercedem pro nuntio
The man that told me, and said: Saul is dead, who thought he brought good tidings, I apprehended, and slew him in Siceleg, who should have been rewarded for his news.
||quanto magis nunc cum homines impii interfecerint virum innoxium in domo sua super lectulum suum non quaeram sanguinem eius de manu vestra et auferam vos de terra
How much more now when wicked men have slain an innocent man in his own house, upon his bed, shall I not require his blood at your hand, and take you away from the earth?
||praecepit itaque David pueris et interfecerunt eos praecidentesque manus et pedes eorum suspenderunt eos super piscinam in Hebron caput autem Hisboseth tulerunt et sepelierunt in sepulchro Abner in Hebron
And David commanded his servants and they slew them: and cutting off their hands and feet, hanged them up over the pool in Hebron: but the head of Isboseth they took and buried in the sepulchre of Abner in Hebron.
