2 Samuel 21

Then there was a famine
<07458>
in the days
<03117>
of David
<01732>
three
<07969>
years
<08141>_,
year
<08141>
after
<0310>
year
<08141>_;
and David
<01732>
enquired
<01245> (8762)
of
<06440>
the LORD
<03068>_.
And the LORD
<03068>
answered
<0559> (8799)_,
[It is] for Saul
<07586>_,
and for [his] bloody
<01818>
house
<01004>_,
because he slew
<04191> (8689)
the Gibeonites
<01393>_.
{enquired...: Heb. sought the face, etc}
And the king
<04428>
called
<07121> (8799)
the Gibeonites
<01393>_,
and said
<0559> (8799)
unto them; (now the Gibeonites
<01393>
[were] not of the children
<01121>
of Israel
<03478>_,
but of the remnant
<03499>
of the Amorites
<0567>_;
and the children
<01121>
of Israel
<03478>
had sworn
<07650> (8738)
unto them: and Saul
<07586>
sought
<01245> (8762)
to slay
<05221> (8687)
them in his zeal
<07065> (8763)
to the children
<01121>
of Israel
<03478>
and Judah
<03063>.)
Wherefore David
<01732>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto the Gibeonites
<01393>_,
What shall I do
<06213> (8799)
for you? and wherewith shall I make the atonement
<03722> (8762)_,
that ye may bless
<01288> (8761)
the inheritance
<05159>
of the LORD
<03068>_?
And the Gibeonites
<01393>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto him, We will have no silver
<03701>
nor gold
<02091>
of
<05973>
Saul
<07586>_,
nor of his house
<01004>_;
neither for us shalt thou kill
<04191> (8687)
any man
<0376>
in Israel
<03478>_.
And he said
<0559> (8799)_,
What ye shall say
<0559> (8802)_,
[that] will I do
<06213> (8799)
for you. {We will...: or, It is not silver nor gold that we have to do with Saul or his house, neither pertains it to us to kill, etc}
And they answered
<0559> (8799)
the king
<04428>_,
The man
<0376>
that consumed
<03615> (8765)
us, and that devised
<01819> (8765)
against us [that] we should be destroyed
<08045> (8738)
from remaining
<03320> (8692)
in any of the coasts
<01366>
of Israel
<03478>_,
{devised...: or, cut us off}
Let seven
<07651>
men
<0582>
of his sons
<01121>
be delivered
<05414> (8714)
unto us, and we will hang them up
<03363> (8689)
unto the LORD
<03068>
in Gibeah
<01390>
of Saul
<07586>_,
[whom] the LORD
<03068>
did choose
<0972>_.
And the king
<04428>
said
<0559> (8799)_,
I will give
<05414> (8799)
[them]. {whom...: or, chosen of the LORD}
But the king
<04428>
spared
<02550> (8799)
Mephibosheth
<04648>_,
the son
<01121>
of Jonathan
<03083>
the son
<01121>
of Saul
<07586>_,
because of the LORD'S
<03068>
oath
<07621>
that [was] between them, between David
<01732>
and Jonathan
<03083>
the son
<01121>
of Saul
<07586>_.
But the king
<04428>
took
<03947> (8799)
the two
<08147>
sons
<01121>
of Rizpah
<07532>
the daughter
<01323>
of Aiah
<0345>_,
whom she bare
<03205> (8804)
unto Saul
<07586>_,
Armoni
<0764>
and Mephibosheth
<04648>_;
and the five
<02568>
sons
<01121>
of Michal
<04324>
the daughter
<01323>
of Saul
<07586>_,
whom she brought up
<03205> (8804)
for Adriel
<05741>
the son
<01121>
of Barzillai
<01271>
the Meholathite
<04259>_:
{Michal: or, Michal's sister} {brought...: Heb. bear to Adriel}
And he delivered
<05414> (8799)
them into the hands
<03027>
of the Gibeonites
<01393>_,
and they hanged
<03363> (8686)
them in the hill
<02022>
before
<06440>
the LORD
<03068>_:
and they fell
<05307> (8799)
[all] seven
<07651> (8675) <07659>
together
<03162>_,
and were put to death
<04191> (8717)
in the days
<03117>
of harvest
<07105>_,
in the first
<07223>
[days], in the beginning
<08462>
of barley
<08184>
harvest
<07105>_.
And Rizpah
<07532>
the daughter
<01323>
of Aiah
<0345>
took
<03947> (8799)
sackcloth
<08242>_,
and spread
<05186> (8686)
it for her upon the rock
<06697>_,
from the beginning
<08462>
of harvest
<07105>
until water
<04325>
dropped
<05413> (8738)
upon them out of heaven
<08064>_,
and suffered
<05414> (8804)
neither the birds
<05775>
of the air
<08064>
to rest
<05117> (8800)
on them by day
<03119>_,
nor the beasts
<02416>
of the field
<07704>
by night
<03915>_.
And it was told
<05046> (8714)
David
<01732>
what Rizpah
<07532>
the daughter
<01323>
of Aiah
<0345>_,
the concubine
<06370>
of Saul
<07586>_,
had done
<06213> (8804)_.
And David
<01732>
went
<03212> (8799)
and took
<03947> (8799)
the bones
<06106>
of Saul
<07586>
and the bones
<06106>
of Jonathan
<03083>
his son
<01121>
from the men
<01167>
of Jabeshgilead
<03003> <01568>_,
which had stolen
<01589> (8804)
them from the street
<07339>
of Bethshan
<01052>_,
where the Philistines
<06430>
had hanged
<08511> (8804) (8675) <08518> (8804)
them, when
<03117>
the Philistines
<06430>
had slain
<05221> (8687)
Saul
<07586>
in Gilboa
<01533>_:
And he brought up
<05927> (8686)
from thence the bones
<06106>
of Saul
<07586>
and the bones
<06106>
of Jonathan
<03083>
his son
<01121>_;
and they gathered
<0622> (8799)
the bones
<06106>
of them that were hanged
<03363> (8716)_.
And the bones
<06106>
of Saul
<07586>
and Jonathan
<03083>
his son
<01121>
buried
<06912> (8799)
they in the country
<0776>
of Benjamin
<01144>
in Zelah
<06762>_,
in the sepulchre
<06913>
of Kish
<07027>
his father
<01>_:
and they performed
<06213> (8799)
all that the king
<04428>
commanded
<06680> (8765)_.
And after
<0310>
that God
<0430>
was intreated
<06279> (8735)
for the land
<0776>_.
Moreover the Philistines
<06430>
had yet war
<04421>
again with Israel
<03478>_;
and David
<01732>
went down
<03381> (8799)_,
and his servants
<05650>
with him, and fought
<03898> (8735)
against the Philistines
<06430>_:
and David
<01732>
waxed faint
<05774> (8799)_.
And Ishbibenob
<03430>_,
which [was] of the sons
<03211>
of the giant
<07497>_,
the weight
<04948>
of whose spear
<07013>
[weighed] three
<07969>
hundred
<03967>
[shekels] of brass
<05178>
in weight
<04948>_,
he being girded
<02296> (8803)
with a new
<02319>
[sword], thought
<0559> (8799)
to have slain
<05221> (8687)
David
<01732>_.
{the giant: or, Rapha} {spear: Heb. the staff, or, the head}
But Abishai
<052>
the son
<01121>
of Zeruiah
<06870>
succoured
<05826> (8799)
him, and smote
<05221> (8686)
the Philistine
<06430>_,
and killed
<04191> (8686)
him. Then the men
<0582>
of David
<01732>
sware
<07650> (8738)
unto him, saying
<0559> (8800)_,
Thou shalt go
<03318> (8799)
no more out with us to battle
<04421>_,
that thou quench
<03518> (8762)
not the light
<05216>
of Israel
<03478>_.
{light: Heb. candle, or, lamp}
And it came to pass after this
<0310>_,
that there was again a battle
<04421>
with the Philistines
<06430>
at Gob
<01359>_:
then Sibbechai
<05444>
the Hushathite
<02843>
slew
<05221> (8689)
Saph
<05593>_,
which [was] of the sons
<03211>
of the giant
<07497>_.
{the giant: or, Rapha} {Saph: or, Sippai}
And there was again a battle
<04421>
in Gob
<01359>
with the Philistines
<06430>_,
where Elhanan
<0445>
the son
<01121>
of Jaareoregim
<03296>_,
a Bethlehemite
<01022>_,
slew
<05221> (8686)
[the brother of] Goliath
<01555>
the Gittite
<01663>_,
the staff
<06086>
of whose spear
<02595>
[was] like a weaver's
<0707> (8802)
beam
<04500>_.
{Jaareoregim: or, Jair}
And there was yet a battle
<04421>
in Gath
<01661>_,
where was a man
<0376>
of [great] stature
<04067> (8675) <04055>_,
that had on every hand
<03027>
six
<08337>
fingers
<0676>_,
and on every foot
<07272>
six
<08337>
toes
<0676>_,
four
<0702>
and twenty
<06242>
in number
<04557>_;
and he also was born
<03205> (8795)
to the giant
<07497>_.
{the giant: or, Rapha}
And when he defied
<02778> (8762)
Israel
<03478>_,
Jonathan
<03083>
the son
<01121>
of Shimea
<08092>
the brother
<0251>
of David
<01732>
slew
<05221> (8686)
him. {defied: or, reproached} {Shimea: also called, Shammah}
These four
<0702>
were born
<03205> (8795)
to the giant
<07497>
in Gath
<01661>_,
and fell
<05307> (8799)
by the hand
<03027>
of David
<01732>_,
and by the hand
<03027>
of his servants
<05650>_.
