1 Samuel Chapter 25 -

And [G2532] Samuel died ; and [G2532] gathered together [G4867] all [G3956] Israel], and [G2532] lamented [G2875] him [G1473], and [G2532] entombed [G2290] him [G1473] in [G1722] the [G3588] his house [G3624][G1473] in [G1722] Ramah. And [G2532] David rose up , and [G2532] went down [G2597] into [G1519] the [G3588] wilderness [G2048] of Paran.
And [G2532] there was a man in [G1722] the [G3588] Maon, and [G2532] the [G3588] his work [G2039][G1473] [was] in [G1722] the [G3588] Carmel, and [G2532] the [G3588] man great [G3173] [was] exceedingly [G4970]. And [G2532] to this man [were [G3778] sheep [G4263] three thousand [G5153], and [G2532] goats a thousand [G5507]. And [G2532] it happened [G1096] during [G1722] the [G3588] shearing [G2751] of the [G3588] his flock [G4168][G1473] in [G1722] the [G3588] Carmel.
And [G2532] name [G3686] of the [G3588] man [was] Nabal, and [G2532] name [G3686] of the [G3588] his wife [G1135][G1473] [was] Abigail. And [G2532] the [G3588] his wife [G1135][G1473] [had] good understanding [G4907], and [G2532] [was] good [G2570] to the [G3588] look [G1491], exceedingly [G4970]. And [G2532] the [G3588] man was recalcitrant [G4642], and [G2532] wicked [G4190] in [G1722] practices , and [G2532] the [G3588] man [was] churlish .
And [G2532] David heard in [G1722] the [G3588] wilderness [G2048] that [G3754] was shearing [G2751] Nabal the [G3588] Carmelite the [G3588] his flock [G4168][G1473].
And [G2532] David sent ten [G1176] servants [G3808]. And [G2532] he said [G2036] to the [G3588] servants [G3808], go up to [G1519] the [G3588] Carmel, and [G2532] come [G2240] to [G4314] Nabal, and [G2532] ask [G2065] him [G1473] in [G1909] the [G3588] name [G3686] of me [G1473] the [things] [G3588] for [G1519] peace [G1515]!
And [G2532] you will say [G2046] thus [G3592], For [G1519] a season [G5610] [may it be for [G2532] you [G1473] being in health [G5198] and [G2532] the [G3588] your house [G3624][G1473], and [G2532] all [G3956] the [things] [G3588] of yours [G4674] being in health [G5198].
And [G2532] now [G3568], look [G2400], I hear that [G3754] shear [G2751] for you [G1473] now [G3568] the [G3588] your shepherds [G4166][G1473], [the ones] who [G3739] were with [G3326] us [G1473] in [G1722] the [G3588] wilderness [G2048], and [G2532] we did not [G3756] detain them [G1473], and [G2532] we did not [G3756] give charge [G1781] to them [G1473] in anything [G3762] all [G3956] the [G3588] days [G2250] of their being [G1473] in [G1722] the [G3588] Carmel.
Ask [G2065] of the [G3588] your servants [G3808][G1473]! and [G2532] they will tell you [G1473]. [G2532] Let [us] find [G2147] the [G3588] your servants [G3808][G1473] favor [G5484] in [G1722] eyes [G3788] of you [G1473]! for [G3754] upon [G1909] day [G2250] a good we come [G2240]. Give [G1325] indeed [G1211] what [G3739] ever should find [G2147] the [G3588] your hand [G5495][G1473] [to the [G3588] your servants [G3816][G1473], and [G2532] [to the [G3588] your son [G5207][G1473] David!
And [G2532] come [G2064] the [G3588] servants [G3808] of David], and [G2532] speak [G2980] to [G4314] Nabal according to [G2596] all [G3956] the [G3588]se things [G4487][G3778] in [G1722] the [G3588] name [G3686] of David.
And [G2532] Nabal jumped up and [G2532] responded to the [G3588] servants [G3816] of David, and [G2532] he said [G2036], Who [is [G5100] the [G3588] David, and [G2532] who [is [G5100] the [G3588] son [G5207] of Jesse? Today [G4594] multiplying [G4129] there are the [G3588] servants [G1401], withdrawing each [G1538] from presence [G4383] of the [G3588] his boss [G2962][G1473].
And [G2532] will I take [G2983] the [G3588] my bread [loaves [G1473], and [G2532] the [G3588] my wine [G3631][G1473], and [G2532] the [G3588] my [things] offered in sacrifices [G1473] which [G3739] I have sacrificed [G2380] to the [G3588] [ones] shearing [G2751] for me [G1473] the [G3588] sheep [G4263], and [G2532] will I give [G1325] them [G1473] to men whom [G3739] I do not [G3756] know [G1492] from what place [G4159] they are ?
And [G2532] turned back the [G3588] servants [G3808] of David] unto [G1519] the [G3588]ir way [G3598][G1473]. And [G2532] they returned , and [G2532] they came [G2064], and [G2532] they announced the [G3588] to David according to [G2596] all [G3956] the [G3588]se words [G4487][G3778].
And [G2532] David said [G2036] [to the [G3588] his men [G1473], Let tie on [G2224] each [man [G1538] the [G3588] his sword [G3162][G1473]! And [G2532] David even [G2532] himself [G1473] tied on [G2224] the [G3588] his sword [G3162][G1473]. And [G2532] they went up after [G3694] David, about [G5613] four hundred [G5071] men , and [G2532] two hundred [G1250] sat down [G2523] by [G1909] the [G3588] equipment [G4632].
And [G2532] [to the [G3588] Abigail wife [G1135] of Nabal reported one [G1520] off the [G3588] servants [G3808], saying [G3004], look [G2400], David sent word-conveyers (messengers) ' from out of [G1537] the [G3588] wilderness [G2048] to bless [G2127]the the [G3588] Boss '[G2962] of us [G1473], and [G2532] he turned aside [G1578] from them [G1473].
And [G2532] the [G3588] men [were] good to us [G1473], exceedingly [G4970]. And [G2532] they did not [G3756] detain us [G1473], nor [G3761] charged [G1781] to us [G1473] anything [G3762] all [G3956] the [G3588] days [G2250] which [G3739] we were by [G3844] them [G1473], in [G1722] the [G3588] our being [G1473] in [G1722] field .
as [G5616] a wall [G5038] They were for [G4012] us [G1473], both [G2532] the [G3588] day [G2250] and [G2532] the [G3588] night [G3571], all [G3956] the [G3588] days [G2250] of our being [G1473] with [G3326] them [G1473] and [G2532] tending [G4165] the [G3588] flocks [G4168].
And [G2532] now [G3568] perceive [G1097] and [G2532] see [G1492] what [G5100] you will do [G4160]! for [G3754] is completed [G4931] the [G3588] evil [G2549] against [G1909]the the [G3588] Boss '[G2962] of us [G1473], and [G2532] against [G1909] the [G3588] his house [G3624][G1473]; and [G2532] he [G3778] [is] a son [G5207] of pestilence [G3061], and [G2532] there is no [way [G3756] to speak [G2980] to [G4314] him [G1473].
And [G2532] Abigail hastened [G4692], and [G2532] took [G2983] two hundred [G1250] bread [loaves , and [G2532] two [G1417] receptacles of wine [G3631], and [G2532] five [G4002] sheep [G4263] prepared [G4160], and [G2532] five [G4002] ephahs of toasted grains , and [G2532] homer one [G1520] of dried grapes , and [G2532] two hundred [G1250] dried clusters of figs ; and [G2532] she put [them [G5087] upon [G1909] the [G3588] donkeys [G3688].
And [G2532] she said [G2036] [to the [G3588] her servants [G3808][G1473], You go forth [G4313] in front of [G1715] me [G1473]! and [G2532] look [G2400], I [G1473] after [G3694] you [G1473] come [G3854]. But to the [G3588][G1161] her husband [G1473] Nabal she did not [G3756] report .
And [G2532] it came to pass [G1096] of her [G1473] being mounted [G1910] upon [G1909] the [G3588] donkey [G3688], that [G2532] she went down [G2597] in [G1722] protection of the [G3588] raised-place (mountain) '[G3735]. And [G2532] look [G2400], David and [G2532] the [G3588] his men [G1473] went down [G2597] to [G1519] meet [G4877] her [G1473], and [G2532] she met them [G1473].
And [G2532] David said [G2036], Perhaps [G2481] [it was [G1519] unjust I guarded [G5442] all [G3956] the [things] [G3588] of the [G3588] Nabal in [G1722] the [G3588] wilderness [G2048], and [G2532] asked not [G3756] to take [G2983] of [G1537] any [G3956] of the [G3588] his [things] [G1473] -- nothing [G3762]. And [G2532] he recompensed to me [G1473] evil [G4190] for good .
Thus [G3592] God do [G4160] the [G3588][G2316] to the [G3588] enemies [G2190] to David, and [G2532] thus [G3592] may he add [G4369], if [G1487] I leave behind [G5275] of [G1537] all [G3956] of the [G3588] [ones] of Nabal unto [G2193] morning [G4404] of ones urinating against [G4314] wall [G5109].
And [G2532] Abigail saw [G1492] the [G3588] David, and [G2532] hastening [G4692] she came down [G2597] from the [G3588] donkey [G3688], and [G2532] fell [G4098] before [G1799] David upon [G1909] her face [G4383][G1473], and [G2532] did obeisance to [G4352] him [G1473] upon [G1909] the [G3588] land '[G1093].
And [G2532] by [G1909] the [G3588] his feet [G4228][G1473] she fell [G4098], and [G2532] she said [G2036], On [G1722] me [G1473], O my boss [G2962][G1473], [be] the [G3588] injustice . Let speak [G2980] indeed [G1211] the [G3588] your maidservant [G1399][G1473] into [G1519] the [G3588] your ears [G3775][G1473], and [G2532] you hear the [G3588] words [G3056] of the [G3588] your maidservant [G1399][G1473]!
Let not [G3361] indeed [G1211] put [G5087] the [G3588] my boss [G2962][G1473] the [G3588] his heart [G2588][G1473] against [G1909] the [G3588] man the [G3588] this pestilent [G3061][G3778], against [G1909] Nabal! For [G3754] according to [G2596] the [G3588] name [G3686] of him [G1473], thus [G3779] is he [G1473] Nabal. Name [G3686] of him [G1473], and [G2532] folly [is] with [G3326] him [G1473]. And [G2532] I [G1473] the [G3588] your maidservant [G1399][G1473] did not [G3756] see [G1492] the [G3588] servants [G3808] of the [G3588] my boss [G2962][G1473] whom [G3739] you sent .
And [G2532] now [G3568], O my boss [G2962][G1473], [as the] BOSS lives [G2198][G2962], and [G2532] as lives [G2198] the [G3588] your soul [G5590][G1473], as [G2531] restrained [G2967] you [G1473] Boss '[G2962] the [G3588] to not [G3361] come [G2064] against [G1519] blood innocent , and [G2532] to deliver [G4982] the [G3588] your hand [G5495][G1473] for yourself [G1473]. And [G2532] now [G3568] may become [G1096] as [G5613] Nabal the [G3588] your enemies [G2190][G1473], and [G2532] the [G3588] [ones] seeking [G2212] [against the [G3588] my boss [G2962][G1473] bad [things] [G2556].
And [G2532] now [G3568] receive [G2983] the [G3588] this blessing [G2129][G3778] which [G3739] has brought [G5342] the [G3588] your maidservant [G1399][G1473] [to the [G3588] my boss [G2962][G1473]! and [G2532] you will give [it [G1325] to the [G3588] servants [G3808] the [G3588] standing beside [G3936] the [G3588] my boss [G2962][G1473].
Take away indeed [G1211] the [G3588] violation of the [G3588] your maidservant [G1399][G1473]! for [G3754] in doing [G4160], BOSS will make [G4160] the [G3588][G2962] for the [G3588] my boss [G2962][G1473] house [G3624] a trustworthy [G4103], for [G3754] battle [G4171] for my boss [G2962][G1473] the [G3588] Boss '[G2962] will wage [G4170], and [G2532] evil [G2549] will not be [G3756] found [G2147] in [G1722] you [G1473] at any time [G4455].
And [G2532] if [G1437] should rise up a man to pursue [G2614] you [G1473], and [G2532] seeking [G2212] the [G3588] your life [G5590][G1473], that [G2532] will be the [G3588] life [G5590] of my boss [G2962][G1473] bound in [G1722] a bond [G1199] of the [G3588] life [G2222] by [G3844] Boss '[G2962] the [G3588] God '[G2316]; and [G2532] the [G3588] life [G5590] of the [G3588] your enemies [G2190][G1473] you will sling [as] in [G1722] midst [G3319] of the [G3588] sling .
And [G2532] it will be whenever [G3752] BOSS will do [G4160][G2962] for the [G3588] my boss [G2962][G1473], according to [G2596] all [G3956] which [G3739] he spoke [G2980] good [things] concerning [G1909] you [G1473], that [G2532] will give charge [G1781] to you [G1473] Boss '[G2962] for [G1519] taking the lead [G2233] over [G1909] Israel.
Then [G2532] will not [G3756] be against your [G1473] this [G3778] abomination and [G2532] obstacle [G4625] heart [G2588], [to the [G3588] my boss [G2962][G1473], to pour out [G1632] blood innocent without charge [G1431], and [G2532] to deliver [G4982] hand [G5495] of my boss [G2962][G1473] for himself [G1438]. And [G2532] BOSS will do good [G2962] [to the [G3588] my boss [G2962][G1473]. And [G2532] you will remember [G3403] the [G3588] your maidservant [G1399][G1473], the [G3588] well [G2573] to do [G4160] to her [G1473].
And [G2532] David said [G2036] to the [G3588] Abigail, Blessed [be [G2128] Boss '[G2962] the [G3588] God '[G2316] of Israel, who [G3739] sent you [G1473] day [G4594] in [G1722] this [G3778] to [G1519] meet me [G1473].
And [G2532] blessed [be [G2128] the [G3588] your manner [G5158][G1473], and [G2532] blessed be [G2127] you [G1473] [to the [G3588] detain me [G1473] today [G4594] in [G1722] this [G3778], to not [G3361] come [G2064] for [G1519] blood , and [G2532] to deliver [G4982] my hand [G5495][G1473] from myself [G1473].
Only [G4133] as lives [G2198] Boss '[G2962] the [G3588] God '[G2316] of Israel, who [G3739] detained me [G1473] today [G4594] of the [G3588] doing evil [G2554] to you [G1473], that [G3754] unless [G1508] you hastened [G4692] and [G2532] came [G3854] to [G1519] meet me [G1473], not [G3756] would there have been left behind [G5275] [to the [G3588] Nabal unto [G2193] light [G5457] of the [G3588] morning [G4404] one urinating against [G4314] wall [G5109].
And [G2532] David took [G2983] from [G1537] her hand [G5495][G1473] all [G3956] which [G3739] she brought [G5342] to him [G1473]. And [G2532] he said [G2036] to her [G1473], go up in [G1519] peace [G1515] to [G1519] the [G3588] your house [G3624][G1473]. See , I hearkened to the [G3588] your voice [G5456][G1473], and [G2532] I took up the [G3588] your person [G4383][G1473]!
And [G2532] Abigail came [G3854] to [G4314] Nabal. And [G2532] look [G2400], there was to him [G1473] a banquet [G4224] in [G1722] the [G3588] his house [G3624][G1473], as [G5613] the [G3588] banquet [G4224] of a king . And [G2532] the [G3588] heart [G2588] of Nabal [was] good with [G1909] him [G1473], and [G2532] he [G1473] was being intoxicated [G3184] exceedingly [G4970]. And [G2532] did not [G3756] report Abigal] [to the [G3588] Nabal thing [G4487], great [G3173] or [G2228] small [G3397], until [G2193] light [G5457] of the [G3588] morning [G4404].
And [G2532] it came to pass [G1096] in morning [G4404] as [G5613] sobered up [G1594] from the [G3588] wine [G3631] Nabal], reported to him [G1473] the [G3588] his wife [G1135][G1473] all [G3956] the [G3588]se things [G4487][G3778].
