I SAMUELE 18

1Eitse hobane Davida a qetelle ho bua le Saule, pelo ya Jonathane ya holehana le pelo ya Davida, mme Jonathane a mo rata, jwalokaha a ithata. 2Tsatsing lona leo, Saule a nka Davida, mme a se ke a hlola a mo dumella ho ya dula ha ntatae. 3Ebile Jonathane o hlaba selekane le Davida, hobane a ne a mo rata jwalokaha a ithata. 4Jonathane a hlobola kobo e ho yena, a e nea Davida, a mo nea le diaparo tsa hae, le sabole ya hae, le seqha sa hae, le senyepa sa hae. 5Davida a nna a futuhela hohle moo Saule a mo romang, mme kahohle a etsa ka masene; Saule a mmea le molaodi wa banna ba ntwa; mme setjhaba sohle le bahlanka ba Saule ba kgahlwa ke yena.

6Yare mohla ho boelwang hae, ha Davida a kgutla polaong ya Mofilesta, basadi ba tswa ka metse yohle ya Iseraele, ho tla kgahlanyetsa morena Saule ka meropa le diphala, ba bina, ba hobela, ba thabile. 7Basadi bao ha ba letsa, ba dumelana, ba re: Saule o bolaile dikete tsa hae, Davida yena o bolaile mashome a dikete tsa hae.

8Saule a hlonama haholo ke hona, mme ntswe leo la mo kgobohetsa, a re: Ba neile Davida mashome a dikete, mme nna ba nneile dikete feela; jwale, ha a sa hloka letho, haese mmuso feela. 9Saule a honohela Davida ke hona, haesale mohlang oo, ho ya ho ile.

10Hosasane, moya o mobe o tswang ho Modimo wa tshwara Saule; a bua ka bohlanya a le ka tlung, mme Davida a letsa ka letsoho la hae, jwaloka mehla, Saule a tshwere lerumo letsohong la hae. 11Saule a betsa ka lerumo, a re: A nke ke bolaele Davida leboteng; Davida a mpa a qoba habedi pela hae. 12Yaba Saule o tshaba Davida ha a bona hobane Jehova o ho yena, athe yena o mo furaletse. 13Saule a mo tlosa ho yena ke hona, a mmea molaodi wa sekete. Davida o ne a etswa, a boela a orohe pontsheng ya setjhaba. 14Davida a etsa tsohle ka masene, mme Jehova o ne a le ho Yena. 15Ka baka leo, Saule, ha a bona hobane Davida o etsa ka masene a maholo, a eketsa ho mo tshaba. 16Haele Baiseraele bohle le Bajuda, ba ne ba rata Davida, ha a ntse a etswa, a oroha pontsheng ya bona.

17Ebile Saule o re ho Davida: Bona Merabe, moradi wa ka e moholo, ke tla o nea yena, e be mosadi wa hao; feela, o ipee monna ya matla ho nna, o lwane dintwa tsa Jehova. Athe Saule o ne a re: Letsoho la ka le se ke la eba ho Davida, e mpe e be matsoho a Bafilista a bang ho yena. 18Davida a re ho Saule: Nna ke mang, ke motho ya jwang, le moloko wa ntate Iseraele keng, hore ke etswe mokgwenyana wa morena? 19Empa ka nako eo Merabe, moradi wa Saule, a tla newa Davida, a newa Adriele wa Mehola, ho ba mosadi wa hae.

20Haele Mikale, moradi e mong wa Saule, o ne a rata Davida. Saule ha a tsebiswa, taba eo ya mo kgahla, 21mme Saule a re: Ke tla mo nea yena, e be sefi ho yena, mme matsoho a Bafilesta a be ho yena: Ebile Saule o re ho Davida: O tla ba mokgwenyana wa ka kajeno ka e mong wa baradi ba ka ba babedi.

22Saule a ntoo laela bahlanka ba hae hore ba bue le Davida sephiring, ka ho re: Bona, morena o o thabetse, le bahlanka ba hae bohle ba o rata; jwale, o be mokgwenyana wa morena. 23Bahlanka ba Saule ba bolella Davida taba tseo. Davida a re: Hleka le lekanya eka ke taba e bonolo ho ba mokgwenyana wa morena, ke le motho ya fumanehileng, ya sa hlomphuweng na? 24Bahlanka ba Saule ba mo tsebisa, ba re: Davida o buile ka hore le ka hore. 25Saule a re: le bolelle Davida, le re: Morena ha a lakatse mapea, haese mengala e lekgolo ya Bafilesta, hore morena a iphetetse ho dira tsa hae. Athe Saule o ne a hloma a ka dihela Davida matsohong a Bafilesta. 26Bahlanka ba hae ba tsebisa Davida taba tseo, mme taba ena ya kgahla Davida hore e be mokgwenyana wa morena. Tshiu tsa teng ha di eso ho fele, 27Davida a tloha, a tsamaya, a ena le batho ba hae, mme a bolaya makgolo a mabedi a Bafilesta; Davida a kgutla le bongala jwa bona, a bo tlisa kaofela ha bona ho morena, e le hore e be mokgwenyana wa morena ka hona; ka baka lena, Saule a mo nea Mikale, moradi wa hae, ho ba mosadi wa hae. 28Kahoo, Saule a bona, a tseba hobane Jehova o na le Davida; mme Mikale, moradi wa Saule, a mo rata. 29Saule a eketsa ke hona ho tshaba Davida haholo, mme Saule a iketsa sera sa kamehla ho Davida.

30Enere ha marena a Bafilesta a futuha, mohla a futuhang, Davida o ne a etsa ka masene, ho fetisa bahlanka bohle ba Saule, bitso la hae la ba la tuma haholo.
