Chapter 25

  1. 1. And Samuel
    H8050
    died;
    H4191
    and all the Israelites
    H3478
    were gathered together,
    H6908
    and lamented
    H5594
    him, and buried
    H6912
    him in his house
    H1004
    at Ramah.
    H7414
    And David
    H1732
    arose,
    H6965
    and went down
    H3381
    to the wilderness
    H4057
    of Paran.
    H6290
  2. 2. And there was a man
    H376
    in Maon,
    H4584
    whose possessions
    H4639
    were in Carmel;
    H3760
    and the man
    H376
    was very
    H3966
    great,
    H1419
    and he had three
    H7969
    thousand
    H505
    sheep,
    H6629
    and a thousand
    H505
    goats:
    H5795
    and he was shearing
    H1494
    his sheep
    H6629
    in Carmel.
    H3760
  3. 3. Now the name
    H8034
    of the man
    H376
    was Nabal;
    H5037
    and the name
    H8034
    of his wife
    H802
    Abigail:
    H26
    and she was a woman
    H802
    of good
    H2896
    understanding,
    H7922
    and of a beautiful
    H3303
    countenance:
    H8389
    but the man
    H376
    was churlish
    H7186
    and evil
    H7451
    in his doings;
    H4611
    and he was of the house of Caleb.
    H3614
  4. 4. And David
    H1732
    heard
    H8085
    in the wilderness
    H4057
    that Nabal
    H5037
    did shear
    H1494
    his sheep.
    H6629
  5. 5. And David
    H1732
    sent out
    H7971
    ten
    H6235
    young men,
    H5288
    and David
    H1732
    said
    H559
    unto the young men,
    H5288
    Get you up
    H5927
    to Carmel,
    H3760
    and go
    H935
    to Nabal,
    H5037
    and greet
    H7592
    H7965
    him in my name:
    H8034
  6. 6. And thus shall ye say
    H559
    to him that liveth
    H2416
    in prosperity, Peace
    H7965
    be both to thee, and peace
    H7965
    be to thine house,
    H1004
    and peace
    H7965
    be unto all that thou hast.
  7. 7. And now I have heard
    H8085
    that thou hast shearers:
    H1494
    now thy shepherds
    H7462
    which were with us, we hurt
    H3637
    them not, neither was there ought
    H3972
    missing
    H6485
    unto them, all the while
    H3117
    they were in Carmel.
    H3760
  8. 8. Ask
    H7592
    thy young men,
    H5288
    and they will shew
    H5046
    thee. Wherefore let the young men
    H5288
    find
    H4672
    favour
    H2580
    in thine eyes:
    H5869
    for we come
    H935
    in a good
    H2896
    day:
    H3117
    give,
    H5414
    I pray thee, whatsoever cometh
    H4672
    to thine hand
    H3027
    unto thy servants,
    H5650
    and to thy son
    H1121
    David.
    H1732
  9. 9. And when David's
    H1732
    young men
    H5288
    came,
    H935
    they spake
    H1696
    to Nabal
    H5037
    according to all those words
    H1697
    in the name
    H8034
    of David,
    H1732
    and ceased.
    H5117
  10. 10. And Nabal
    H5037
    answered
    H6030
    David's
    H1732
    servants,
    H5650
    and said,
    H559
    Who is David?
    H1732
    and who is the son
    H1121
    of Jesse?
    H3448
    there be many
    H7231
    servants
    H5650
    now a days
    H3117
    that break away
    H6555
    every man
    H376
    from
    H6440
    his master.
    H113
  11. 11. Shall I then take
    H3947
    my bread,
    H3899
    and my water,
    H4325
    and my flesh
    H2878
    that I have killed
    H2873
    for my shearers,
    H1494
    and give
    H5414
    it unto men,
    H582
    whom I know
    H3045
    not whence they be?
  12. 12. So David's
    H1732
    young men
    H5288
    turned
    H2015
    their way,
    H1870
    and went again,
    H7725
    and came
    H935
    and told
    H5046
    him all those sayings.
    H1697
  13. 13. And David
    H1732
    said
    H559
    unto his men,
    H582
    Gird ye on
    H2296
    every man
    H376
    his sword.
    H2719
    And they girded on
    H2296
    every man
    H376
    his sword;
    H2719
    and David
    H1732
    also girded on
    H2296
    his sword:
    H2719
    and there went up
    H5927
    after
    H310
    David
    H1732
    about four
    H702
    hundred
    H3967
    men;
    H376
    and two hundred
    H3967
    abode
    H3427
    by the stuff.
    H3627
  14. 14. But one
    H259
    of the young men
    H5288
    told
    H5046
    Abigail,
    H26
    Nabal's
    H5037
    wife,
    H802
    saying,
    H559
    Behold, David
    H1732
    sent
    H7971
    messengers
    H4397
    out of the wilderness
    H4057
    to salute
    H1288
    our master;
    H113
    and he railed
    H5860
    on them.
  15. 15. But the men
    H582
    were very
    H3966
    good
    H2896
    unto us, and we were not hurt,
    H3637
    neither missed
    H6485
    we any thing,
    H3972
    as long as
    H3117
    we were conversant
    H1980
    with them, when we were in the fields:
    H7704
  16. 16. They were a wall
    H2346
    unto us both by night
    H3915
    and day,
    H3119
    all the while
    H3117
    we were with them keeping
    H7462
    the sheep.
    H6629
  17. 17. Now therefore know
    H3045
    and consider
    H7200
    what thou wilt do;
    H6213
    for evil
    H7451
    is determined
    H3615
    against our master,
    H113
    and against all his household:
    H1004
    for he is such a son
    H1121
    of Belial,
    H1100
    that a man cannot speak
    H1696
    to him.
  18. 18. Then Abigail
    H26
    made haste,
    H4116
    and took
    H3947
    two hundred
    H3967
    loaves,
    H3899
    and two
    H8147
    bottles
    H5035
    of wine,
    H3196
    and five
    H2568
    sheep
    H6629
    ready dressed,
    H6213
    and five
    H2568
    measures
    H5429
    of parched
    H7039
    corn, and an hundred
    H3967
    clusters of raisins,
    H6778
    and two hundred
    H3967
    cakes
    H1690
    of figs, and laid
    H7760
    them on asses.
    H2543
  19. 19. And she said
    H559
    unto her servants,
    H5288
    Go on
    H5674
    before
    H6440
    me; behold, I come
    H935
    after
    H310
    you. But she told
    H5046
    not her husband
    H376
    Nabal.
    H5037
  20. 20. And it was so, as she rode
    H7392
    on the ass,
    H2543
    that she came down
    H3381
    by the covert
    H5643
    of the hill,
    H2022
    and, behold, David
    H1732
    and his men
    H582
    came down
    H3381
    against
    H7125
    her; and she met
    H6298
    them.
  21. 21. Now David
    H1732
    had said,
    H559
    Surely in vain
    H8267
    have I kept
    H8104
    all that this
    H2088
    fellow hath in the wilderness,
    H4057
    so that nothing
    H3972
    was missed
    H6485
    of all that pertained unto him: and he hath requited
    H7725
    me evil
    H7451
    for good.
    H2896
  22. 22. So
    H3541
    and more
    H3254
    also do
    H6213
    God
    H430
    unto the enemies
    H341
    of David,
    H1732
    if I leave
    H7604
    of all that pertain to him by
    H5704
    the morning
    H1242
    light
    H216
    any that pisseth
    H8366
    against the wall.
    H7023
  23. 23. And when Abigail
    H26
    saw
    H7200
    David,
    H1732
    she hasted,
    H4116
    and lighted off
    H3381
    the ass,
    H2543
    and fell
    H5307
    before
    H639
    David
    H1732
    on her face,
    H6440
    and bowed
    H7812
    herself to the ground,
    H776
  24. 24. And fell
    H5307
    at his feet,
    H7272
    and said,
    H559
    Upon me, my lord,
    H113
    upon me let this iniquity
    H5771
    be: and let thine handmaid,
    H519
    I pray thee, speak
    H1696
    in thine audience,
    H241
    and hear
    H8085
    the words
    H1697
    of thine handmaid.
    H589
  25. 25. Let
    H7760
    not my lord,
    H113
    I pray thee, regard
    H3820
    this man
    H376
    of Belial,
    H1100
    even Nabal:
    H5037
    for as his name
    H8034
    is, so is he; Nabal
    H5037
    is his name,
    H8034
    and folly
    H5039
    is with him: but I thine handmaid
    H519
    saw
    H7200
    not the young men
    H5288
    of my lord,
    H113
    whom thou didst send.
    H7971
  26. 26. Now therefore, my lord,
    H113
    as the LORD
    H3068
    liveth,
    H2416
    and as thy soul
    H5315
    liveth,
    H2416
    seeing the LORD
    H3068
    hath withholden
    H4513
    thee from coming
    H935
    to shed blood,
    H1818
    and from avenging
    H3467
    thyself with thine own hand,
    H3027
    now let thine enemies,
    H341
    and they that seek
    H1245
    evil
    H7451
    to my lord,
    H113
    be as Nabal.
    H5037
  27. 27. And now this blessing
    H1293
    which thine handmaid
    H8198
    hath brought
    H935
    unto my lord,
    H113
    let it even be given
    H5414
    unto the young men
    H5288
    that follow
    H1980
    H7272
    my lord.
    H113
  28. 28. I pray thee, forgive
    H5375
    the trespass
    H6588
    of thine handmaid:
    H519
    for the LORD
    H3068
    will certainly
    H6213
    make
    H6213
    my lord
    H113
    a sure
    H539
    house;
    H1004
    because my lord
    H113
    fighteth
    H3898
    the battles
    H4421
    of the LORD,
    H3068
    and evil
    H7451
    hath not been found
    H4672
    in thee all thy days.
    H3117
  29. 29. Yet a man
    H120
    is risen
    H6965
    to pursue
    H7291
    thee, and to seek
    H1245
    thy soul:
    H5315
    but the soul
    H5315
    of my lord
    H113
    shall be bound
    H6887
    in the bundle
    H6872
    of life
    H2416
    with the LORD
    H3068
    thy God;
    H430
    and the souls
    H5315
    of thine enemies,
    H341
    them shall he sling out,
    H7049
    as out of the middle
    H3709
    of
    H8432
    a sling.
    H7050
  30. 30. And it shall come to pass, when the LORD
    H3068
    shall have done
    H6213
    to my lord
    H113
    according to all the good
    H2896
    that he hath spoken
    H1696
    concerning thee, and shall have appointed
    H6680
    thee ruler
    H5057
    over Israel;
    H3478
  31. 31. That this shall be no grief
    H6330
    unto thee, nor offence
    H4383
    of heart
    H3820
    unto my lord,
    H113
    either that thou hast shed
    H8210
    blood
    H1818
    causeless,
    H2600
    or that my lord
    H113
    hath avenged
    H3467
    himself: but when the LORD
    H3068
    shall have dealt well
    H3190
    with my lord,
    H113
    then remember
    H2142
    thine handmaid.
    H519
  32. 32. And David
    H1732
    said
    H559
    to Abigail,
    H26
    Blessed
    H1288
    be the LORD
    H3068
    God
    H430
    of Israel,
    H3478
    which sent
    H7971
    thee this day
    H3117
    to meet
    H7125
    me:
  33. 33. And blessed
    H1288
    be thy advice,
    H2940
    and blessed
    H1288
    be thou, which hast kept
    H3607
    me this day
    H3117
    from coming
    H935
    to shed blood,
    H1818
    and from avenging
    H3467
    myself with mine own hand.
    H3027
  34. 34. For in very deed,
    H199
    as the LORD
    H3068
    God
    H430
    of Israel
    H3478
    liveth,
    H2416
    which hath kept me back
    H4513
    from hurting
    H7489
    thee, except
    H3884
    thou hadst hasted
    H4116
    and come
    H935
    to meet
    H7125
    me, surely there had not been left
    H3498
    unto Nabal
    H5037
    by the morning
    H1242
    light
    H216
    any that pisseth
    H8366
    against the wall.
    H7023
  35. 35. So David
    H1732
    received
    H3947
    of her hand
    H3027
    that which she had brought
    H935
    him, and said
    H559
    unto her, Go up
    H5927
    in peace
    H7965
    to thine house;
    H1004
    see,
    H7200
    I have hearkened
    H8085
    to thy voice,
    H6963
    and have accepted
    H5375
    thy person.
    H6440
  36. 36. And Abigail
    H26
    came
    H935
    to Nabal;
    H5037
    and, behold, he held a feast
    H4960
    in his house,
    H1004
    like the feast
    H4960
    of a king;
    H4428
    and Nabal's
    H5037
    heart
    H3820
    was merry
    H2896
    within him, for he was very
    H3966
    drunken:
    H7910
    wherefore she told
