1 G2532 And G* Samuel G599 died; G2532 and G4867 [3gathered together G3956 1all G* 2Israel], G2532 and G2875 lamented G1473 him, G2532 and G2290 entombed G1473 him G1722 in G3588 G3624 his house G1473 G1722 in G* Ramah. G2532 And G450 David rose up, G* G2532 and G2597 went down G1519 into G3588 the G2048 wilderness G* of Paran.
2 G2532 And G1510.7.3 there was G444 a man G1722 in G3588 G* Maon, G2532 and G3588 G2039 his work G1473 G1722 was in G3588 G* Carmel, G2532 and G3588 the G444 man G3173 [2great G4970 1 was exceedingly]. G2532 And G3778 to this man were G4263 [2sheep G5153 1three thousand], G2532 and G137.1 [2goats G5507 1a thousand]. G2532 And G1096 it happened G1722 during G3588 the G2751 shearing G3588 G4168 of his flock G1473 G1722 in G3588 G* Carmel.
3 G2532 And G3686 the name G3588 of the G444 man G* was Nabal, G2532 and G3686 the name G3588 G1135 of his wife G1473 G* was Abigail. G2532 And G3588 G1135 his wife G1473 G18 had good G4907 understanding, G2532 and G2570 was good G3588 to the G1491 sight, G4970 exceedingly. G2532 And G3588 the G444 man G4642 was recalcitrant, G2532 and G4190 wicked G1722 in G2006.1 practices, G2532 and G3588 the G444 man G2952.3 was churlish.
4 G2532 And G191 David heard G* G1722 in G3588 the G2048 wilderness G3754 that G2751 [4was shearing G* 1Nabal G3588 2the G* 3Carmelite] G3588 G4168 his flock. G1473
5 G2532 And G649 David sent G* G1176 ten G3808 servants. G2532 And G2036 he said G3588 to the G3808 servants, G305 Ascend G1519 to G3588 G* Carmel, G2532 and G2240 come G4314 to G* Nabal, G2532 and G2065 ask G1473 him G1909 in G3588 G3686 my name G1473 G3588 the things G1519 for G1515 peace!
6 G2532 And G2046 you shall say G3592 thus, G1519 For G5610 a season G2532 may it be for G1473 you G5198 being in health G2532 and G3588 G3624 your house, G1473 G2532 and G3956 all G3588 the things G4674 of yours G5198 being in health.
7 G2532 And G3568 now, G2400 behold, G191 I hear G3754 that G2751 [2shear G1473 3for you G3568 4now G3588 G4166 1your shepherds], G1473 G3739 the ones who G1510.7.6 were G3326 with G1473 us G1722 in G3588 the G2048 wilderness, G2532 and G3756 we did not G617.1 detain G1473 them, G2532 and G3756 we did not G1781 give charge G1473 to them G3762 in anything G3956 all G3588 the G2250 days G1510.6 of their being G1473 G1722 in G3588 G* Carmel.
8 G2065 Ask G3588 G3808 of your servants! G1473 G2532 and G518 they will tell G1473 you. G2532 G2147 Let us [2find G3588 G3808 1your servants] G1473 G5484 favor G1722 in G3788 your eyes! G1473 G3754 for G1909 upon G2250 [2day G18 1a good] G2240 we come. G1325 Give G1211 indeed G3739 what G302 ever G2147 [2should find G3588 G5495 1your hand] G1473 G3588 to G3816 your servants, G1473 G2532 and G3588 to G5207 your son G1473 G* David!
9 G2532 And G2064 [4come G3588 1the G3808 2servants G* 3of David], G2532 and G2980 speak G4314 to G* Nabal G2596 according to G3956 all G3588 G4487 these things G3778 G1722 in G3588 the G3686 name G* of David.
10 G2532 And G375.2 Nabal jumped up G* G2532 and G611 responded G3588 to the G3816 servants G* of David, G2532 and G2036 he said, G5100 Who is G3588 G* David, G2532 and G5100 who is G3588 the G5207 son G* of Jesse? G4594 Today G4129 [3multiplying G1510.2.6 1there are G3588 G1401 2servants], G402 [2withdrawing G1538 1each] G575 from G4383 the presence G3588 G2962 of his master. G1473
11 G2532 And G2983 shall I take G3588 G740 my bread loaves, G1473 G2532 and G3588 G3631 my wine, G1473 G2532 and G3588 G2367.3 my things offered in sacrifices G1473 G3739 which G2380 I have sacrificed G3588 to the ones G2751 shearing G1473 for me G3588 the G4263 sheep, G2532 and G1325 shall I give G1473 them G435 to men G3739 whom G3756 I do not G1492 know G4159 from what place G1510.2.6 they are?
12 G2532 And G654 [4turned back G3588 1the G3808 2servants G* 3of David] G1519 unto G3588 G3598 their way. G1473 G2532 And G390 they returned, G2532 and G2064 they came, G2532 and G312 they announced G3588 G* to David G2596 according to G3956 all G3588 G4487 these words. G3778
13 G2532 And G2036 David said G* G3588 to G435 his men, G1473 G2224 Let [2tie on G1538 1each man] G3588 G3162 his sword! G1473 G2532 And G* David G2532 even G1473 himself G2224 tied on G3588 G3162 his sword. G1473 G2532 And G305 they ascended G3694 after G* David, G5613 about G5071 four hundred G435 men, G2532 and G1250 two hundred G2523 stayed G1909 by G3588 the G4632 equipment.
14 G2532 And G3588 [5 to G* 6Abigail G1135 7wife G* 8of Nabal G518 9reported G1520 1one G575 2of G3588 3the G3808 4servants], G3004 saying, G2400 Behold, G* David G649 sent G32 messengers G1537 from out of G3588 the G2048 wilderness G2127 to bless G3588 G2962 our master, G1473 G2532 and G1578 he turned aside G575 from G1473 them.
15 G2532 And G3588 the G435 men G18 were good G1473 to us, G4970 exceedingly. G2532 And G3756 they did not G617.1 detain G1473 us, G3761 nor G1781 charged G1473 to us G3762 anything G3956 all G3588 the G2250 days G3739 which G1510.7.4 we were G3844 by G1473 them, G1722 in G3588 G1510.1 our being G1473 G1722 in G68 the field.
16 G5616 [2as G5038 3a wall G1510.7.6 1They were] G4012 for G1473 us, G2532 both G3588 G2250 day G2532 and G3588 G3571 night, G3956 all G3588 the G2250 days G1510.6 of our being G1473 G3326 with G1473 them G2532 and G4165 tending G3588 the G4168 flocks.
17 G2532 And G3568 now G1097 perceive G2532 and G1492 see G5100 what G4160 you shall do! G3754 for G4931 [2is completed G3588 G2549 1evil] G1909 against G3588 G2962 our master, G1473 G2532 and G1909 against G3588 G3624 his house; G1473 G2532 and G3778 he G5207 is a son G3061 of pestilence, G2532 and G3756 there is no way G1510.2.3 G2980 to speak G4314 to G1473 him.
18 G2532 And G4692 Abigail hastened, G* G2532 and G2983 took G1250 two hundred G740 bread loaves, G2532 and G1417 two G30 receptacles G3631 of wine, G2532 and G4002 five G4263 sheep G4160 prepared, G2532 and G4002 five G3634.1 ephahs G255.1 of toasted grains, G2532 and G1115.1 [2homer G1520 1one] G4717.1 of dried grapes, G2532 and G1250 two hundred G3818.1 dried clusters of figs; G2532 and G5087 she put them G1909 upon G3588 the G3688 donkeys.
19 G2532 And G2036 she said G3588 to G3808 her servants, G1473 G4313 You go forth G1715 in front of G1473 me! G2532 and G2400 behold, G1473 I G3694 [2after G1473 3you G3854 1come]. G3588 But to G1161 G435 her husband G1473 G* Nabal G3756 she did not G518 report.
20 G2532 And G1096 it came to pass G1473 of her G1910 being mounted G1909 upon G3588 the G3688 donkey, G2532 that G2597 she went down G1722 in G4629.2 the protection G3588 of the G3735 mountain. G2532 And G2400 behold, G* David G2532 and G3588 G435 his men G1473 G2597 went down G1519 to G4877 meet G1473 her, G2532 and G528 she met G1473 them.
21 G2532 And G* David G2036 said, G2481 Perhaps G1519 it was G94 unjust G5442 I guarded G3956 all G3588 the things G3588 G* of Nabal G1722 in G3588 the G2048 wilderness, G2532 and G3756 asked not G154 G2983 to take G1537 of G3956 any G3588 G1473 of his things -- G3762 nothing. G2532 And G467 he recompensed G1473 to me G4190 evil G473 for G18 good.
22 G3592 Thus G4160 God do G3588 G2316 G3588 to the G2190 enemies G* to David, G2532 and G3592 thus G4369 may he add, G1487 if G5275 I leave behind G1537 of G3956 all G3588 of the ones G* of Nabal G2193 unto G4404 the morning G3773.1 of ones urinating G4314 against G5109 the wall.
23 G2532 And G1492 Abigail saw G* G3588 G* David, G2532 and G4692 hastening G2597 she came down G575 from G3588 the G3688 donkey, G2532 and G4098 fell G1799 before G* David G1909 upon G4383 her face, G1473 G2532 and G4352 did obeisance to G1473 him G1909 upon G3588 the G1093 ground.
24 G2532 And G1909 [2by G3588 G4228 3his feet G1473 G4098 1she fell], G2532 and G2036 she said, G1722 On G1473 me, G2962 O my lord, G1473 G3588 be the G93 injustice. G2980 Let [3speak G1211 1indeed G3588 G1399 2your maidservant] G1473 G1519 into G3588 G3775 your ears, G1473 G2532 and G191 you hear G3588 the G3056 words G3588 G1399 of your maidservant! G1473
25 G3361 Let not G1211 indeed G5087 [2put G3588 G2962 1my master] G1473 G3588 G2588 his heart G1473 G1909 against G3588 G435 [2man G3588 G3061 1this pestilent], G3778 G1909 against G* Nabal! G3754 For G2596 according to G3588 G3686 his name, G1473 G3779 thus G1510.2.3 is G1473 he G* Nabal. G3686 His name, G1473 G2532 and G877 folly G3326 is with G1473 him. G2532 And G1473 I G3588 G1399 your maidservant G1473 G3756 did not G1492 see G3588 the G3808 servants G3588 G2962 of my master G1473 G3739 whom G649 you sent.
26 G2532 And G3568 now, G2962 O my lord, G1473 G2198 as the lord lives, G2962 G2532 and G2198 as [2lives G3588 G5590 1your soul], G1473 G2531 as G2967 [2restrained G1473 3you G2962 1 the lord] G3588 G3361 to not G2064 come G1519 against G129 [2blood G121 1innocent], G2532 and G4982 to deliver G3588 G5495 your hand G1473 G1473 for yourself. G2532 And G3568 now G1096 may [2become G5613 3as G* 4Nabal G3588 G2190 1your enemies], G1473 G2532 and G3588 the ones G2212 seeking G3588 [2 against G2962 3my lord G1473 G2556 1bad things].
27 G2532 And G3568 now G2983 receive G3588 G2129 this blessing G3778 G3739 which G5342 [2has brought G3588 G1399 1your maidservant] G1473 G3588 to G2962 my master! G1473 G2532 and G1325 you shall give it G3588 to the G3808 servants G3588 G3936 standing beside G3588 G2962 my master. G1473
28 G142 Take away G1211 indeed G3588 the G457.2 violation G3588 G1399 of your maidservant! G1473 G3754 for G4160 in doing, G4160 the lord shall make G3588 G2962 G3588 G2962 [3for my master G1473 G3624 2house G4103 1a trustworthy], G3754 for G4171 [4 the battle G2962 5for my master G1473 G3588 1the G2962 2 lord G4170 3shall wage], G2532 and G2549 evil G3756 shall not be G2147 found G1722 in G1473 you G4455 at any time.
29 G2532 And G1437 if G450 [2should rise up G444 1a man] G2614 to pursue G1473 you, G2532 and G2212 seeking G3588 G5590 your life, G1473 G2532 that G1510.8.3 [4will be G3588 1the G5590 2life G2962 3of my master] G1473 G1735.1 bound G1722 in G1199 a bond G3588 G2222 of life G3844 by G2962 the lord G3588 G2316 God; G2532 and G3588 the G5590 life G3588 G2190 of your enemies G1473 G4969.1 you shall sling G1722 as in G3319 the midst G3588 of the G4969.2 sling.
30 G2532 And G1510.8.3 it shall be G3752 whenever G4160 the lord shall do G2962 G3588 for G2962 my master, G1473 G2596 according to G3956 all G3739 [2which G2980 3he spoke G18 1good things] G1909 concerning G1473 you, G2532 that G1781 [2shall give charge G1473 3to you G2962 1 the lord] G1519 for G2233 taking the lead G1909 over G* Israel.
31 G2532 Then G3756 [5shall not G1510.8.3 6be G1473 7against your G3778 1this G946.1 2abomination G2532 3and G4625 4obstacle] G2588 heart, G3588 to G2962 my master, G1473 G1632 to pour out G129 [2blood G121 1innocent] G1431 without charge, G2532 and G4982 to deliver G5495 the hand G2962 of my master G1473 G1438 for himself. G2532 And G18.2 the lord shall do good G2962 G3588 to G2962 my master. G1473 G2532 And G3403 you shall remember G3588 G1399 your maidservant, G1473 G3588 G2573 [2well G4160 1to do] G1473 to her.
32 G2532 And G2036 David said G* G3588 to G* Abigail, G2128 Blessed be G2962 the lord G3588 G2316 God G* of Israel, G3739 who G649 sent G1473 you G4594 [3day G1722 1in G3778 2this] G1519 to G529 meet G1473 me.
33 G2532 And G2128 blessed be G3588 G5158 your manner, G1473 G2532 and G2127 blessed be G1473 you G3588 to G617.1 detain G1473 me G4594 today G1722 in G3778 this, G3361 to not G2064 come G1519 for G129 blood, G2532 and G4982 to deliver G5495 my hand G1473 G1473 from myself.
34 G4133 Only G2198 as lives G2962 the lord G3588 G2316 God G* of Israel, G3739 who G617.1 detained G1473 me G4594 today G3588 G2554 of doing evil G1473 to you, G3754 that G1508 unless G4692 you hastened G2532 and G3854 came G1519 to G529 meet G1473 me, G3756 not G302 would there have been left behind G5275 G3588 to G* Nabal G2193 unto G5457 the light G3588 of the G4404 morning G3773.1 one urinating G4314 against G5109 the wall.
35 G2532 And G2983 David took G* G1537 from G5495 her hand G1473 G3956 all G3739 which G5342 she brought G1473 to him. G2532 And G2036 he said G1473 to her, G305 Ascend G1519 in G1515 peace G1519 to G3588 G3624 your house. G1473 G991 See, G191 I hearkened to G3588 G5456 your voice, G1473 G2532 and G140 I took up G3588 G4383 your person! G1473
36 G2532 And G3854 Abigail came G* G4314 to G* Nabal. G2532 And G2400 behold, G1510.7.3 there was G1473 to him G4224 a banquet G1722 in G3588 G3624 his house, G1473 G5613 as G3588 the G4224 banquet G935 of a king. G2532 And G3588 the G2588 heart G* of Nabal G18 was good G1909 with G1473 him, G2532 and G1473 he G3184 was being intoxicated G4970 exceedingly. G2532 And G3756 [2did not G518 3report G* 1Abigal] G3588 to G* Nabal G4487 the thing, G3173 great G2228 or G3397 small, G2193 until G5457 the light G3588 of the G4404 morning.
37 G2532 And G1096 it came to pass G4404 in the morning G5613 as G1594 [2sobered up G575 3from G3588 4the G3631 5wine G* 1Nabal], G518 [2reported G1473 3to him G3588 G1135 1his wife] G1473 G3956 all G3588 G4487 these things. G3778 G2532 And G1727.1 [3died G3588 G2588 2heart G1473 1his] G1722 in G1473 him, G2532 and G1473 he G1096 became G5613 as G3037 stone.
38 G2532 And G1096 it came to pass G5616 after about G1176 ten G2250 days, G2532 that G3960 the lord struck G2962 G3588 G* Nabal G2532 and G599 he died.
39 G2532 And G191 David heard G* G3754 that G599 Nabal died, G* G2532 and G2036 he said, G2128 Blessed be G2962 the lord G3739 who G2919 judged G3588 the G2920 case G3588 G3680 of my being scorned G1473 G1537 by G5495 the hand G* of Nabal, G2532 and G3588 G1401 [2his servant G1473 G4046 1protected] G1537 from out of G5495 the hand G2556 of evils. G2532 And G3588 the G2549 evil G* of Nabal G654 the lord returned G2962 G1519 against G3588 G2776 his own head. G1473 G2532 And G649 David sent G* G2532 and G2980 spoke G4012 concerning G* Abigail, G2983 to take G1473 her G1438 to himself G1519 for G1135 a wife.
40 G2532 And G2064 [4came G3588 1the G3816 2servants G* 3of David] G4314 to G* Abigail G1519 in G3588 G* Carmel. G2532 And G2980 they spoke G1473 to her, G3004 saying, G* David G649 sends G1473 us G4314 to G1473 you, G2983 to take G1473 you G1473 to himself G1519 for G1135 a wife.
41 G2532 And G450 rising, G4352 she did obeisance G1909 upon G4383 her face G1909 upon G3588 the G1093 ground. G2532 And G2036 she said, G2400 Behold, G3588 G1399 your maidservant G1473 G1519 is for G3814 a girl G3538 to wash G3588 the G4228 feet G3588 of the G3816 servants G3588 G2962 of my master. G1473
