1 Samuel 12 - Versions
1 Samuel 12 Text (WEB)
  1. Samuel said to all Israel, "Behold, I have listened to your voice in all that you said to me, and have made a king over you.
  2. Now, behold, the king walks before you; and I am old and gray-headed; and behold, my sons are with you: and I have walked before you from my youth to this day.
  3. Here I am. Witness against me before Yahweh, and before his anointed. Whose ox have I taken? Whose donkey have I taken? Whom have I defrauded? Whom have I oppressed? Of whose hand have I taken a ransom to blind my eyes therewith? I will restore it to you."
  4. They said, "You have not defrauded us, nor oppressed us, neither have you taken anything of any man's hand."
  5. He said to them, "Yahweh is witness against you, and his anointed is witness this day, that you have not found anything in my hand." They said, "He is witness."
  6. Samuel said to the people, "It is Yahweh who appointed Moses and Aaron, and that brought your fathers up out of the land of Egypt.
  7. Now therefore stand still, that I may plead with you before Yahweh concerning all the righteous acts of Yahweh, which he did to you and to your fathers.
  8. "When Jacob was come into Egypt, and your fathers cried to Yahweh, then Yahweh sent Moses and Aaron, who brought forth your fathers out of Egypt, and made them to dwell in this place.
  9. "But they forgot Yahweh their God; and he sold them into the hand of Sisera, captain of the army of Hazor, and into the hand of the Philistines, and into the hand of the king of Moab; and they fought against them.
  10. They cried to Yahweh, and said, 'We have sinned, because we have forsaken Yahweh, and have served the Baals and the Ashtaroth: but now deliver us out of the hand of our enemies, and we will serve you.'
  11. Yahweh sent Jerubbaal, and Bedan, and Jephthah, and Samuel, and delivered you out of the hand of your enemies on every side; and you lived in safety.
  12. "When you saw that Nahash the king of the children of Ammon came against you, you said to me, 'No, but a king shall reign over us;' when Yahweh your God was your king.
  13. Now therefore see the king whom you have chosen, and whom you have asked for: and behold, Yahweh has set a king over you.
  14. If you will fear Yahweh, and serve him, and listen to his voice, and not rebel against the commandment of Yahweh, and both you and also the king who reigns over you are followers of Yahweh your God, [well]:
  15. but if you will not listen to the voice of Yahweh, but rebel against the commandment of Yahweh, then will the hand of Yahweh be against you, as it was against your fathers.
  16. "Now therefore stand still and see this great thing, which Yahweh will do before your eyes.
  17. Isn't it wheat harvest today? I will call to Yahweh, that he may send thunder and rain; and you shall know and see that your wickedness is great, which you have done in the sight of Yahweh, in asking for a king."
  18. So Samuel called to Yahweh; and Yahweh sent thunder and rain that day: and all the people greatly feared Yahweh and Samuel.
  19. All the people said to Samuel, "Pray for your servants to Yahweh your God, that we not die; for we have added to all our sins [this] evil, to ask us a king."
  20. Samuel said to the people, "Don't be afraid. You have indeed done all this evil; yet don't turn aside from following Yahweh, but serve Yahweh with all your heart.
  21. Don't turn aside; for [then you would go] after vain things which can't profit nor deliver, for they are vain.
  22. For Yahweh will not forsake his people for his great name's sake, because it has pleased Yahweh to make you a people to himself.
  23. Moreover as for me, far be it from me that I should sin against Yahweh in ceasing to pray for you: but I will instruct you in the good and the right way.
  24. Only fear Yahweh, and serve him in truth with all your heart; for consider how great things he has done for you.
  25. But if you shall still do wickedly, you shall be consumed, both you and your king."
1 Samuel 12 Text (Hebrew)
  1. ויאמר שמואל אל־כל־ישראל הנה שמעתי בקלכם לכל אשר־אמרתם לי ואמליך עליכם מלך׃
  2. ועתה הנה המלך מתהלך לפניכם ואני זקנתי ושבתי ובני הנם אתכם ואני התהלכתי לפניכם מנערי עד־היום הזה׃
  3. הנני ענו בי נגד יהוה ונגד משיחו את־שור מי לקחתי וחמור מי לקחתי ואת־מי עשקתי את־מי רצותי ומיד־מי לקחתי כפר ואעלים עיני בו ואשיב לכם׃
  4. ויאמרו לא עשקתנו ולא רצותנו ולא־לקחת מיד־איש מאומה׃
  5. ויאמר אליהם עד יהוה בכם ועד משיחו היום הזה כי לא מצאתם בידי מאומה ויאמר עד׃ ף
  6. ויאמר שמואל אל־העם יהוה אשר עשה את־משה ואת־אהרן ואשר העלה את־אבתיכם מארץ מצרים׃
  7. ועתה התיצבו ואשפטה אתכם לפני יהוה את כל־צדקות יהוה אשר־עשה אתכם ואת־אבותיכם׃
  8. כאשר־בא יעקב מצרים ויזעקו אבותיכם אל־יהוה וישלח יהוה את־משה ואת־אהרן ויוציאו את־אבתיכם ממצרים וישבום במקום הזה׃
  9. וישכחו את־יהוה אלהיהם וימכר אתם ביד סיסרא שר־צבא חצור וביד־פלשתים וביד מלך מואב וילחמו בם׃
  10. ויזעקו אל־יהוה חטאנו כי עזבנו את־יהוה ונעבד את־הבעלים ואת־העשתרות ועתה הצילנו מיד איבינו ונעבדך׃
  11. וישלח יהוה את־ירבעל ואת־בדן ואת־יפתח ואת־שמואל ויצל אתכם מיד איביכם מסביב ותשבו בטח׃
  12. ותראו כי־נחש מלך בני־עמון בא עליכם ותאמרו לי לא כי־מלך ימלך עלינו ויהוה אלהיכם מלככם׃
  13. ועתה הנה המלך אשר בחרתם אשר שאלתם והנה נתן יהוה עליכם מלך׃
  14. אם־תיראו את־יהוה ועבדתם אתו ושמעתם בקלו ולא תמרו את־פי יהוה והיתם גם־אתם וגם־המלך אשר מלך עליכם אחר יהוה אלהיכם׃
  15. ואם־לא תשמעו בקול יהוה ומריתם את־פי יהוה והיתה יד־יהוה בכם ובאבתיכם׃
  16. גם־עתה התיצבו וראו את־הדבר הגדול הזה אשר יהוה עשה לעיניכם׃
  17. הלוא קציר־חטים היום אקרא אל־יהוה ויתן קלות ומטר ודעו וראו כי־רעתכם רבה אשר עשיתם בעיני יהוה לשאול לכם מלך׃ ס
  18. ויקרא שמואל אל־יהוה ויתן יהוה קלת ומטר ביום ההוא ויירא כל־העם מאד את־יהוה ואת־שמואל׃
  19. ויאמרו כל־העם אל־שמואל התפלל בעד־עבדיך אל־יהוה אלהיך ואל־נמות כי־יספנו על־כל־חטאתינו רעה לשאל לנו מלך׃ ס
  20. ויאמר שמואל אל־העם אל־תיראו אתם עשיתם את כל־הרעה הזאת אך אל־תסורו מאחרי יהוה ועבדתם את־יהוה בכל־לבבכם׃
  21. ולא תסורו כי אחרי התהו אשר לא־יועילו ולא יצילו כי־תהו המה׃
  22. כי לא־יטש יהוה את־עמו בעבור שמו הגדול כי הואיל יהוה לעשות אתכם לו לעם׃
  23. גם אנכי חלילה לי מחטא ליהוה מחדל להתפלל בעדכם והוריתי אתכם בדרך הטובה והישרה׃
  24. אך יראו את־יהוה ועבדתם אתו באמת בכל־לבבכם כי ראו את אשר־הגדל עםכם׃
  25. ואם־הרע תרעו גם־אתם גם־מלככם תספו׃ ף
1 Samuel 12 Text (Greek)
  1. και ειπεν σαμουηλ προς παντα ανδρα ισραηλ ιδου ηκουσα φωνης υμων εις παντα οσα ειπατε μοι και εβασιλευσα εφ' υμας
  2. και νυν ιδου ο βασιλευς διαπορευεται ενωπιον υμων καγω γεγηρακα και καθησομαι και οι υιοι μου ιδου εν υμιν καγω ιδου διεληλυθα ενωπιον υμων εκ νεοτητος μου και εως της ημερας
  3. ιδου εγω αποκριθητε κατ' εμου ενωπιον κυριου και ενωπιον χριστου αυτου μοσχον τινος ειληφα η ονον τινος ειληφα η τινα κατεδυναστευσα υμων η τινα εξεπιεσα η εκ χειρος τινος ειληφα εξιλασμα και υποδημα αποκριθητε κατ' εμου και αποδωσω
  4. και ειπαν προς σαμουηλ ουκ ηδικησας ημας και ου κατεδυναστευσας και ουκ εθλασας ημας και ουκ ειληφας εκ χειρος ουδενος
  5. και ειπεν σαμουηλ προς τον λαον μαρτυς κυριος εν υμιν και μαρτυς χριστος αυτου σημερον εν ταυτη τη ημερα οτι ουχ ευρηκατε εν χειρι μου ουθεν και ειπαν
  6. και ειπεν σαμουηλ προς τον λαον λεγων μαρτυς κυριος ο ποιησας τον μωυσην και τον ααρων ο αναγαγων τους πατερας ημων εξ
  7. και νυν καταστητε και δικασω υμας ενωπιον κυριου και απαγγελω υμιν την πασαν δικαιοσυνην κυριου α εποιησεν εν υμιν και εν τοις πατρασιν
  8. ως εισηλθεν ιακωβ και οι υιοι αυτου εις αιγυπτον και εταπεινωσεν αυτους αιγυπτος και εβοησαν οι πατερες ημων προς κυριον και απεστειλεν κυριος τον μωυσην και τον ααρων και εξηγαγεν τους πατερας ημων εξ αιγυπτου και κατωκισεν αυτους εν τω τοπω
  9. και επελαθοντο κυριου του θεου αυτων και απεδοτο αυτους εις χειρας σισαρα αρχιστρατηγου ιαβιν βασιλεως ασωρ και εις χειρας αλλοφυλων και εις χειρας βασιλεως μωαβ και επολεμησαν εν
  10. και εβοησαν προς κυριον και ελεγον ημαρτομεν οτι εγκατελιπομεν τον κυριον και εδουλευσαμεν τοις βααλιμ και τοις αλσεσιν και νυν εξελου ημας εκ χειρος εχθρων ημων και δουλευσομεν
  11. και απεστειλεν κυριος τον ιεροβααλ και τον βαρακ και τον ιεφθαε και τον σαμουηλ και εξειλατο υμας εκ χειρος εχθρων υμων των κυκλοθεν και κατωκειτε
  12. και ειδετε οτι ναας βασιλευς υιων αμμων ηλθεν εφ' υμας και ειπατε ουχι αλλ' η οτι βασιλευς βασιλευσει εφ' ημων και κυριος ο θεος ημων βασιλευς
  13. και νυν ιδου ο βασιλευς ον εξελεξασθε και ιδου δεδωκεν κυριος εφ' υμας
  14. εαν φοβηθητε τον κυριον και δουλευσητε αυτω και ακουσητε της φωνης αυτου και μη ερισητε τω στοματι κυριου και ητε και υμεις και ο βασιλευς ο βασιλευων εφ' υμων οπισω κυριου
  15. εαν δε μη ακουσητε της φωνης κυριου και ερισητε τω στοματι κυριου και εσται χειρ κυριου επι υμας και επι τον βασιλεα
  16. και νυν καταστητε και ιδετε το ρημα το μεγα τουτο ο ο κυριος ποιησει εν οφθαλμοις
  17. ουχι θερισμος πυρων σημερον επικαλεσομαι κυριον και δωσει φωνας και υετον και γνωτε και ιδετε οτι η κακια υμων μεγαλη ην εποιησατε ενωπιον κυριου αιτησαντες εαυτοις
  18. και επεκαλεσατο σαμουηλ τον κυριον και εδωκεν κυριος φωνας και υετον εν τη ημερα εκεινη και εφοβηθησαν πας ο λαος τον κυριον σφοδρα και τον
  19. και ειπαν πας ο λαος προς σαμουηλ προσευξαι υπερ των δουλων σου προς κυριον θεον σου και ου μη αποθανωμεν οτι προστεθεικαμεν προς πασας τας αμαρτιας ημων κακιαν αιτησαντες εαυτοις
  20. και ειπεν σαμουηλ προς τον λαον μη φοβεισθε υμεις πεποιηκατε την πασαν κακιαν ταυτην πλην μη εκκλινητε απο οπισθεν κυριου και δουλευσατε τω κυριω εν ολη καρδια
  21. και μη παραβητε οπισω των μηθεν οντων οι ου περανουσιν ουθεν και οι ουκ εξελουνται οτι ουθεν
  22. οτι ουκ απωσεται κυριος τον λαον αυτου δια το ονομα αυτου το μεγα οτι επιεικεως κυριος προσελαβετο υμας αυτω εις
  23. και εμοι μηδαμως του αμαρτειν τω κυριω ανιεναι του προσευχεσθαι περι υμων και δουλευσω τω κυριω και δειξω υμιν την οδον την αγαθην και την
  24. πλην φοβεισθε τον κυριον και δουλευσατε αυτω εν αληθεια και εν ολη καρδια υμων οτι ειδετε α εμεγαλυνεν μεθ'
  25. και εαν κακια κακοποιησητε και υμεις και ο βασιλευς υμων
1 Samuel 12 Text (Latin)
  1. Dixit autem Samuel ad universum Israël : Ecce audivi vocem vestram juxta omnia quæ locuti estis ad me, et constitui super vos regem.
  2. Et nunc rex graditur ante vos : ego autem senui, et incanui : porro filii mei vobiscum sunt : itaque conversatus coram vobis ab adolescentia mea usque ad hanc diem, ecce præsto sum.
  3. Loquimini de me coram Domino, et coram Christo ejus, utrum bovem cujusquam tulerim, aut asinum : si quempiam calumniatus sum, si oppressi aliquem, si de manu cujusquam munus accepi : et contemnam illud hodie, restituamque vobis.
  4. Et dixerunt : Non es calumniatus nos, neque oppressisti, neque tulisti de manu alicujus quippiam.
  5. Dixitque ad eos : Testis est Dominus adversum vos, et testis Christus ejus in die hac, quia non inveneritis in manu mea quippiam. Et dixerunt : Testis.
  6. Et ait Samuel ad populum : Dominus, qui fecit Moysen et Aaron, et eduxit patres nostros de terra Ægypti.
  7. Nunc ergo state, ut judicio contendam adversum vos coram Domino de omnibus misericordiis Domini, quas fecit vobiscum, et cum patribus vestris :
  8. quomodo Jacob ingressus est in Ægyptum, et clamaverunt patres vestri ad Dominum : et misit Dominus Moysen et Aaron, et eduxit patres vestros de Ægypto : et collocavit eos in loco hoc.
  9. Qui obliti sunt Domini Dei sui, et tradidit eos in manu Sisaræ magistri militiæ Hasor, et in manu Philisthinorum, et in manu regis Moab, et pugnaverunt adversum eos.
  10. Postea autem clamaverunt ad Dominum, et dixerunt : Peccavimus, quia dereliquimus Dominum, et servivimus Baalim et Astaroth : nunc ergo erue nos de manu inimicorum nostrorum, et serviemus tibi.
  11. Et misit Dominus Jerobaal, et Badan, et Jephte, et Samuel, et eruit vos de manu inimicorum vestrorum per circuitum, et habitastis confidenter.
  12. Videntes autem quod Naas rex filiorum Ammon venisset adversum vos, dixistis mihi : Nequaquam, sed rex imperabit nobis : cum Dominus Deus vester regnaret in vobis.
  13. Nunc ergo præsto est rex vester, quem elegistis et petistis : ecce dedit vobis Dominus regem.
  14. Si timueritis Dominum, et servieritis ei, et audieritis vocem ejus, et non exasperaveritis os Domini : eritis et vos, et rex qui imperat vobis, sequentes Dominum Deum vestrum :
  15. si autem non audieritis vocem Domini, sed exasperaveritis sermones ejus, erit manus Domini super vos, et super patres vestros.
  16. Sed et nunc state, et videte rem istam grandem quam facturus est Dominus in conspectu vestro.
  17. Numquid non messis tritici est hodie ? invocabo Dominum, et dabit voces et pluvias : et scietis, et videbitis, quia grande malum feceritis vobis in conspectu Domini, petentes super vos regem.
  18. Et clamavit Samuel ad Dominum, et dedit Dominus voces et pluvias in illa die.
  19. Et timuit omnis populus nimis Dominum et Samuelem, et dixit universus populus ad Samuelem : Ora pro servis tuis ad Dominum Deum tuum, ut non moriamur : addidimus enim universis peccatis nostris malum, ut peteremus nobis regem.
  20. Dixit autem Samuel ad populum : Nolite timere, vos fecistis universum malum hoc : verumtamen nolite recedere a tergo Domini, sed servite Domino in omni corde vestro.
  21. Et nolite declinare post vana, quæ non proderunt vobis, neque eruent vos, quia vana sunt.
  22. Et non derelinquet Dominus populum suum propter nomen suum magnum : quia juravit Dominus facere vos sibi populum.
  23. Absit autem a me hoc peccatum in Dominum, ut cessem orare pro vobis, et docebo vos viam bonam et rectam.
  24. Igitur timete Dominum, et servite ei in veritate, et ex toto corde vestro : vidistis enim magnifica quæ in vobis gesserit.
  25. Quod si perseveraveritis in malitia : et vos et rex vester pariter peribitis.
1 Samuel 12 Text (KJV)
  1. And Samuel said unto all Israel, Behold, I have hearkened unto your voice in all that ye said unto me, and have made a king over you.
  2. And now, behold, the king walketh before you: and I am old and grayheaded; and, behold, my sons are with you: and I have walked before you from my childhood unto this day.
  3. Behold, here I am: witness against me before the LORD, and before his anointed: whose ox have I taken? or whose ass have I taken? or whom have I defrauded? whom have I oppressed? or of whose hand have I received any bribe to blind mine eyes therewith? and I will restore it you.
  4. And they said, Thou hast not defrauded us, nor oppressed us, neither hast thou taken ought of any man's hand.
  5. And he said unto them, The LORD is witness against you, and his anointed is witness this day, that ye have not found ought in my hand. And they answered, He is witness.
  6. And Samuel said unto the people, It is the LORD that advanced Moses and Aaron, and that brought your fathers up out of the land of Egypt.
  7. Now therefore stand still, that I may reason with you before the LORD of all the righteous acts of the LORD, which he did to you and to your fathers.
  8. When Jacob was come into Egypt, and your fathers cried unto the LORD, then the LORD sent Moses and Aaron, which brought forth your fathers out of Egypt, and made them dwell in this place.
  9. And when they forgat the LORD their God, he sold them into the hand of Sisera, captain of the host of Hazor, and into the hand of the Philistines, and into the hand of the king of Moab, and they fought against them.
  10. And they cried unto the LORD, and said, We have sinned, because we have forsaken the LORD, and have served Baalim and Ashtaroth: but now deliver us out of the hand of our enemies, and we will serve thee.
  11. And the LORD sent Jerubbaal, and Bedan, and Jephthah, and Samuel, and delivered you out of the hand of your enemies on every side, and ye dwelled safe.
  12. And when ye saw that Nahash the king of the children of Ammon came against you, ye said unto me, Nay; but a king shall reign over us: when the LORD your God was your king.
  13. Now therefore behold the king whom ye have chosen, and whom ye have desired! and, behold, the LORD hath set a king over you.
  14. If ye will fear the LORD, and serve him, and obey his voice, and not rebel against the commandment of the LORD, then shall both ye and also the king that reigneth over you continue following the LORD your God:
  15. But if ye will not obey the voice of the LORD, but rebel against the commandment of the LORD, then shall the hand of the LORD be against you, as it was against your fathers.
  16. Now therefore stand and see this great thing, which the LORD will do before your eyes.
  17. Is it not wheat harvest to day? I will call unto the LORD, and he shall send thunder and rain; that ye may perceive and see that your wickedness is great, which ye have done in the sight of the LORD, in asking you a king.
  18. So Samuel called unto the LORD; and the LORD sent thunder and rain that day: and all the people greatly feared the LORD and Samuel.
  19. And all the people said unto Samuel, Pray for thy servants unto the LORD thy God, that we die not: for we have added unto all our sins this evil, to ask us a king.
  20. And Samuel said unto the people, Fear not: ye have done all this wickedness: yet turn not aside from following the LORD, but serve the LORD with all your heart;
  21. And turn ye not aside: for then should ye go after vain things, which cannot profit nor deliver; for they are vain.
  22. For the LORD will not forsake his people for his great name's sake: because it hath pleased the LORD to make you his people.
  23. Moreover as for me, God forbid that I should sin against the LORD in ceasing to pray for you: but I will teach you the good and the right way:
  24. Only fear the LORD, and serve him in truth with all your heart: for consider how great things he hath done for you.
  25. But if ye shall still do wickedly, ye shall be consumed, both ye and your king.
1 Samuel 12
