2 Samuel 8

David’s Triumphs

1Now after this it came about that David [a]defeated the Philistines and subdued them; and David took [b]control of the chief city from the hand of the Philistines.

He [c]defeated Moab, and measured them with the line, making them lie down on the ground; and he measured two lines to put to death and one full line to keep alive. And the Moabites became servants to David, bringing tribute.

Then David [d]defeated Hadadezer, the son of Rehob king of Zobah, as he went to restore his [e]rule at the [f]River. David captured from him 1,700 horsemen and 20,000 foot soldiers; and David hamstrung the chariot horses, but reserved enough of them for 100 chariots. When the Arameans of Damascus came to help Hadadezer, king of Zobah, David [g]killed 22,000 Arameans. Then David put garrisons among the Arameans of Damascus, and the Arameans became servants to David, bringing tribute. And the Lord helped David wherever he went. David took the shields of gold which were [h]carried by the servants of Hadadezer and brought them to Jerusalem. From [i]Betah and from Berothai, cities of Hadadezer, King David took a very large amount of bronze.

Now when Toi king of Hamath heard that David had [j]defeated all the army of Hadadezer, 10 Toi sent [k]Joram his son to King David to [l]greet him and bless him, because he had fought against Hadadezer and [m]defeated him; for Hadadezer [n]had been at war with Toi. And [o]Joram brought with him articles of silver, of gold and of bronze. 11 King David also dedicated these to the Lord, with the silver and gold that he had dedicated from all the nations which he had subdued: 12 from [p]Aram and Moab and the sons of Ammon and the Philistines and Amalek, and from the spoil of Hadadezer, son of Rehob, king of Zobah.

13 So David made a name for himself when he returned from [q]killing 18,000 [r]Arameans in the Valley of Salt. 14 He put garrisons in Edom. In all Edom he put garrisons, and all the Edomites became servants to David. And the Lord helped David wherever he went.

15 So David reigned over all Israel; and David [s]administered justice and righteousness for all his people. 16 Joab the son of Zeruiah was over the army, and Jehoshaphat the son of Ahilud was recorder. 17 Zadok the son of Ahitub and Ahimelech the son of Abiathar were priests, and Seraiah was secretary. 18 Benaiah the son of Jehoiada [t]was over the Cherethites and the Pelethites; and David’s sons were [u]chief ministers.

サムエル記Ⅱ 8

ダビデの勝利

1そののち、ダビデはペリシテ人の大きな町メテグ・ハアマを奪い取り、彼らの心をくじきました。 また、モアブの地を襲った時には、捕虜を列に並ばせたうえ、地面に伏させ、各列の三分の二の者を殺し、残り三分の一を助けました。助かったモアブ人はダビデのしもべとなり、毎年、貢ぎ物を納める者になりました。

ダビデはまたユーフラテス川での戦いで、レホブの子、ツォバの王ハダデエゼルの軍を打ち破りました。ハダデエゼルが勢力を挽回しようと攻めて来たからです。 ダビデは騎兵千七百と歩兵二万を捕縛し、さらに、百頭だけ残して、戦車用の馬の足の筋をすべて切りました。 また、ハダデエゼルの援軍としてダマスコから参戦したシリヤ人二万二千人を打ちました。 それでダビデはダマスコに守備隊を置き、シリヤ人はダビデに服従し、毎年、貢ぎ物を納めるようになりました。このように主は、ダビデの行く先々どこででも勝利をもたらしたのです。 ダビデはハダデエゼルの家臣たちが持っていた金の盾を奪い、エルサレムに持ち帰りました。 また、ハダデエゼルの町ベタフとベロタイから奪った大量の青銅も持ち帰りました。

ハマテの王トイは、ダビデがハダデエゼルの軍を破り、大勝利を収めたことを聞くと、 10 その子ヨラムを使者に立て、祝いのことばを伝えました。ハダデエゼルとトイとは敵対関係にあったのです。ヨラムはダビデに金、銀、青銅の器を贈りました。 11-12 ダビデはそれらを全部、シリヤ、モアブ、アモン、ペリシテ人、アマレク、ハダデエゼル王から奪い取った金銀とともに主にささげました。

13 ダビデの名声はいよいよ高まりました。ダビデは帰還すると、塩の谷でエドム人一万八千を打ち滅ぼし、 14 エドム中に兵を駐屯させました。エドム人はみな、イスラエルに貢ぎ物をささげるしもべとなったのです。これもまた主が、行く先々で勝利を与えたことの一つです。

15 ダビデは公正にイスラエルを治め、だれに対しても公平でした。 16 軍の総司令官はツェルヤの子ヨアブ、主の書記官はアヒルデの子ヨシャパテでした。 17 アヒトブの子ツァドクとエブヤタルの子アヒメレクは祭司の長、セラヤは王の秘書官、 18 エホヤダの子ベナヤは護衛隊長、ダビデの子たちは側近を務めました。
