Then all Israel gathered themselves to David in Hebron, saying: We are thy bone, and thy flesh.

2 Heri quoque et nudiustertius cum adhuc regnaret Saul, tu eras qui educebas, et introducebas Isræl: tibi enim dixit Dominus Deus tuus: Tu pasces populum meum Isræl, et tu eris princeps super eum.

Yesterday also, and the day before when Saul was king, thou wast he that leddest out and broughtest in Israel: for the Lord thy God said to thee: Thou shalt feed my people Israel, and thou shalt; be ruler over them.

3 Venerunt ergo omnes majores natu Isræl ad regem in Hebron, et iniit David cum eis fœdus coram Domino: unxeruntque eum regem super Isræl, juxta sermonem Domini, quem locutus est in manu Samuel.

So all the ancients of Israel came to the king to Hebron, and David made a covenant with them before the Lord: and they anointed him king over Israel, according to the word of the Lord which he spoke in the hand of Samuel.

4 Abiit quoque David, et omnis Isræl in Jerusalem: hæc est Jebus, ubi erant Jebusæi habitatores terræ.

And David and all Israel went to Jerusalem, which is Jebus, where the Jebusites were the inhabitants of the land.

5 Dixeruntque qui habitabant in Jebus ad David: Non ingredieris huc. Porro David cepit arcem Sion, quæ est civitas David,

And the inhabitants of Jebus said to David: Thou shalt not come in here. But David took the castle of Sion, which is the city of David.

6 dixitque: Omnis qui percusserit Jebusæum in primis, erit princeps, et dux. Ascendit igitur primus Joab filius Sarviæ, et factus est princeps.

And he said: Whosoever shall first strike the Jebusites, shall be the head and chief captain. And Joab the son of Sarvia went up first, and was made the general.

7 Habitavit autem David in arce, et idcirco appellata est civitas David.

And after him was Eleazar his uncle' s son the Ahohite, who was one of the three mighties.

But these men stood in the midst of the field, and defended it: and they slew the Philistines, and the Lord gave a great deliverance to his people.

And these three broke through the midst of the camp of the Philistines, and drew water out of the cistern of Bethlehem, which was in the gate, and brought it to David to drink: and he would not drink of it, but rather offered it to the Lord,

19 dicens: Absit ut in conspectu Dei mei hoc faciam, et sanguinem istorum virorum bibam: quia in periculo animarum suarum attulerunt mihi aquam. Et ob hanc causam noluit bibere: hæc fecerunt tres robustissimi.

Saying: God forbid that I should do this in the sight of my God, and should drink the blood of these men: for with the danger of their lives they have brought me the water. And therefore he would not drink. These things did the three most valiant.

And he slew an Egyptian, whose stature was of five cubits, and who had a spear like a weaver' s beam: and he went down to him with a staff, and plucked away the spear, that he held in his hand, and slew him with his own spear.
