Davida o pholosa motse wa Keila

231Davida a bolellwa, ha thwe: “Hela, Bafilesita ba futuhetse Keila, ba ntse ba nka dijo diotlong.”

2Yaba Davida o botsa Morena, o re: “Na nka futuhela Bafilesita baa?”

Morena a re ho Davida: “Eya, o futuhele Bafilesita, mme o namolele motse wa Keila.”

3Empa banna ba Davida ba re ho yena: “Haesita re tshaba re sa le moo Juda, re tla tshaba ho le hokae ha re eya Keila ho lwantsha mabotho a Bafilesita?”

4Davida a boela a botsa Morena, mme Morena a mo araba, a re: “Ema, o theohele Keila, hobane ke tla neelana ka Bafilesita matsohong a hao.” 5Yaba Davida o ya Keila a ena le banna ba hae. A lwantsha Bafilesita, a hapa dikgomo tsa bona, mme a ba etsa mofela. Davida a namolela baahi ba Keila ka mokgwa ona.

6Ha Abiatare, mora wa Ahimeleke, a ne a balehela Keila ho Davida, o ne a ile a theoha a nkile setipe.

7Saule a tsebiswa hore Davida o fihlile Keila. Yaba Saule o re: “Modimo o neelane ka Davida matsohong a ka, hobane o ikentse lerabeng ka ho kena motseng o nang le dikgoro, le mekwallo.” 8Saule a bitsa bahlabani bohle hore ba ye ntweng, ba theohele Keila, ba yo thibella Davida le banna ba hae.

9Davida o ne a tseba hore Saule o ntse a mo rera ka lekunutu; yaba o re ho moprista Abiatare: “Tlisa setipe seo kwano!” 10Davida a re: “Oho, Morena Modimo wa Iseraele, mohlanka wa hao o utlwile hore Saule o tla Keila ho tla ripitla motse ona ka baka la ka. 11Na baahi ba Keila ba tla neelana ka nna matsohong a Saule? Na Saule o tla fela a theohele kwano jwalokaha mohlanka wa hao a utlwile? Oho, Morena Modimo wa Iseraele, ke a o rapela: Ako tsebise mohlanka wa hao.”

Morena a re: “O tla theohela.”

12Yaba Davida o re: “Na baahi ba Keila ba tla neelana ka nna, le ka banna ba ka, matsohong a Saule?”

Morena a re: “Ba tla neelana ka wena.”

13Yaba Davida le banna ba hae ba ka bang makgolo a tsheletseng ba a tsamaya, ba tloha Keila, ba nna ba lelera. Ha Saule a utlwa hore Davida o balehile Keila, yaba ha a sa futuha.

Davida o ipata Horeshe

14Davida a phela diqhobosheaneng tse lehwatateng, le naheng e maralla e pela Sife. Saule a mo tsoma ka matsatsi wohle, empa Modimo ha a a ka a neelana ka Davida matsohong a hae.

15Davida a tseba hore Saule o tswile hae ho ya mo tsoma, a mmolaye. Davida o ne a le Horeshe lehwatateng la Sife; 16yaba Jonathane, mora wa Saule, a o tsamaya, o ya ho Davida Horeshe, mme a mo kgothaletsa hore a tshepe Modimo. 17Jonathane a re ho Davida: “Se tshabe, hobane Saule, e leng ntate, a ke ke a o fumana. O tla ba kgosi ya Iseraele, mme nna ke tla ba letsoho la hao le letona. Le Saule, e leng ntate, o tseba jwalo.” 18Bobedi ba bona ba etsa selekane kapele ho Morena; Davida a dula moo Horeshe, Jonathane yena a kgutlela ha hae.1 Sam. 18:3

Bohlabaphiyo ba Basife

19Jwale Basife ba nyoloha, ba ya ho Saule ha a le Gibea, ba re: “Davida o ipatile naheng ena ya rona, diqhobosheaneng tse Horeshe, lerallaneng la Hakila, le ka borwa ho lehwatata.Pes. 54(Hloohong ya ditaba). 20Ka baka leo he, kgosi ya ka, haeba o rata ho theoha, theoha, mme rona re tla neelana ka yena matsohong a hao.”

21Saule a re: “Morena a ke a le hlohonolofatse, hobane lona le nkutlwela bohloko. 22Ke a le rapela he: Tsamayang, le yo batlisisa, le tsebe, le be le bone seforo sa hae. Le tsebe le hore na ke mang ya mmoneng moo, hobane ke boleletswe hore ke ramaqiti. 23Ka baka leo, hlokomelang, le tsebe diforo tsohle tseo a ipatang ho tsona, ebe le ntsebisa seo e leng nnete, mme ke tla ya le lona. Haeba a ntse a le naheng eo, ke tla mmatla hara setjhaba sohle sa Juda.”

24Basife bao ba tsamaya, ba kgutlela Sife, ba etella Saule pele. Davida le banna ba hae ba ne ba le lehwatateng la Maone, phuleng e ka borwa ho lehwatata.

Davida o phonyoha ho Saule

25Saule le banna ba hae ba tsamaya ho ya batla Davida. Davida a tsebiswa taba ena, mme a theohela lefikeng, a ya phela lehwatateng la Maone. Ha Saule a utlwa taba ena, a phaladisa Davida ho ya fihla lehwatateng la Maone.

26Saule le banna ba hae ba pota thaba ka nqena, Davida le banna ba hae bona ba e pota ka nqane. Ka baka la ho tshaba Saule, Davida le banna ba hae ba baleha ka potlako, hobane Saule le banna ba hae ba ne ba leka ho kopela Davida le banna ba hae hare, hore ba tle ba ba tshware. 27Empa leqosa la fihla ho Saule, la re: “Potlaka, o kgutle, hobane Bafilesita ba futuhetse naha ena.” 28Yaba Saule o kgaotsa ho phaladisa Davida, o futuhela Bafilesita. Ka baka leo, sebaka seo ba se rea lebitso la Lefika la Karohano. 29Davida a tloha moo, a ya aha diqhobosheaneng tsa Ene-Gedi.
