Chapter 18 - 1 Samuel

1 And it came to pass, when he had made an end of speaking unto Saul, that the soul of Jonathan was knit with the soul of David, and Jonathan loved him as his own soul.1 At nangyari, nang siya'y makatapos na magsalita kay Saul, na ang kaluluwa ni Jonathan ay nalakip sa kaluluwa ni David, at minahal ni Jonathan siya na gaya ng kaniyang sariling kaluluwa.
2 And Saul took him that day, and would let him go no more home to his father's house.2 At kinuha siya ni Saul nang araw na yaon, at hindi na siya tinulutang umuwi sa bahay ng kaniyang ama.
3 Then Jonathan and David made a covenant, because he loved him as his own soul.3 Nang magkagayo'y si Jonathan at si David ay nagtibay ng isang tipan, sapagka't minahal niya siya na gaya ng kaniyang sariling kaluluwa.
4 And Jonathan stripped himself of the robe that was upon him, and gave it to David, and his garments, even to his sword, and to his bow, and to his girdle.4 At hinubad ni Jonathan ang kaniyang balabal na nakasuot sa kaniya, at ibinigay kay David, at ang kaniyang kasuutan pati ng kaniyang tabak, at ng kaniyang busog at ng kaniyang pamigkis.
5 And David went out whithersoever Saul sent him, and behaved himself wisely: and Saul set him over the men of war, and he was accepted in the sight of all the people, and also in the sight of Saul's servants.5 At lumalabas si David saan man suguin ni Saul, at siya'y nagpakabait: at inilagay ni Saul siya sa mga lalaking mangdidigma, at minabuti ng paningin ng buong bayan, at gayon din ng paningin ng mga lingkod ni Saul.
6 And it came to pass as they came, when David was returned from the slaughter of the Philistine, that the women came out of all cities of Israel, singing and dancing, to meet king Saul, with tabrets, with joy, and with instruments of musick.6 At nangyari pagdating nila, nang bumalik si David mula sa pagpatay sa Filisteo, na ang mga babae ay lumabas mula sa lahat ng mga bayan ng Israel, na nagaawitan at nagsasayawan, upang salubungin ang haring si Saul, ng mga pandereta, ng kagalakan, at ng panugtog ng tugtugin.
7 And the women answered one another as they played, and said, Saul hath slain his thousands, and David his ten thousands.7 At nagaawitan ang mga babae sa kanilang pagtugtog, at sinasabi, Pinatay ni Saul ang kaniyang libolibo, At ni David ang kaniyang laksa-laksa.
8 And Saul was very wroth, and the saying displeased him; and he said, They have ascribed unto David ten thousands, and to me they have ascribed but thousands: and what can he have more but the kingdom?8 At nagalit na mainam si Saul at ang sabing ito ay isinama niya ng loob; at kaniyang sinabi, Kanilang inilagay kay David ay laksalaksa, at sa akin ay kanilang inilagay ang libolibo lamang: at ano na lamang ang kaniyang tatangkilikin kundi ang kaharian?
9 And Saul eyed David from that day and forward.9 At inirapan ni Saul si David mula sa araw na yaon.
10 And it came to pass on the morrow, that the evil spirit from God came upon Saul, and he prophesied in the midst of the house: and David played with his hand, as at other times: and there was a javelin in Saul's hand.10 At nangyari nang kinabukasan, na ang masamang espiritu na mula sa Dios ay dumating na makapangyarihan kay Saul, at siya'y nanghula sa gitna ng bahay: at si David ay tumugtog ng kaniyang kamay, gaya ng kaniyang ginagawa araw-araw; at hawak ni Saul ang kaniyang sibat sa kaniyang kamay.
11 And Saul cast the javelin; for he said, I will smite David even to the wall with it. And David avoided out of his presence twice.11 At inihagis ni Saul ang sibat; sapagka't kaniyang sinabi, Aking tutuhugin si David sa dinding. At tumanan si David sa kaniyang harap na makalawa.
12 And Saul was afraid of David, because the LORD was with him, and was departed from Saul.12 At natakot si Saul kay David, sapagka't ang Panginoon ay sumasakaniya, at nahiwalay na kay Saul.
13 Therefore Saul removed him from him, and made him his captain over a thousand; and he went out and came in before the people.13 Kaya't inihiwalay ni Saul siya sa kaniya, at siya'y ginawa niyang punong kawal sa isang libo; at siya'y naglalabas pumasok sa harap ng bayan.
14 And David behaved himself wisely in all his ways; and the LORD was with him.14 Nagpakabait si David sa lahat ng kaniyang kilos; at ang Panginoon ay sumasakaniya.
15 Wherefore when Saul saw that he behaved himself very wisely, he was afraid of him.15 At nang makita ni Saul na siya'y nagpakabait, siya'y natakot sa kaniya.
16 But all Israel and Judah loved David, because he went out and came in before them.16 Nguni't minamahal ng buong Israel at Juda si David; sapagka't siya'y naglalabas pumasok sa harap nila.
17 And Saul said to David, Behold my elder daughter Merab, her will I give thee to wife: only be thou valiant for me, and fight the LORD's battles. For Saul said, Let not mine hand be upon him, but let the hand of the Philistines be upon him.17 At sinabi ni Saul kay David, Narito ang aking lalong matandang anak na babae na si Merab; siya'y aking ibibigay sa iyo na asawa: magpakatapang ka lamang dahil sa akin, at iyong ilaban ang mga pagbabaka ng Panginoon. Sapagka't sinabi ni Saul, Huwag pagbuhatan siya ng aking kamay, kundi ang kamay ng mga Filisteo, ang magbuhat sa kaniya.
18 And David said unto Saul, Who am I? and what is my life, or my father's family in Israel, that I should be son in law to the king?18 At sinabi ni David kay Saul, Sino ako at ano ang aking buhay, o ang sangbahayan ng aking ama sa Israel, upang maging manugang ako ng hari?
19 But it came to pass at the time when Merab Saul's daughter should have been given to David, that she was given unto Adriel the Meholathite to wife.19 Nguni't nangyari na sa panahong ibibigay kay David si Merab na anak na babae ni Saul, ay ibinigay na asawa kay Adriel na Meholatita.
20 And Michal Saul's daughter loved David: and they told Saul, and the thing pleased him.20 At sinisinta ni Michal na anak na babae ni Saul si David: at kanilang isinaysay kay Saul, at ang bagay ay ikinalugod niya.
21 And Saul said, I will give him her, that she may be a snare to him, and that the hand of the Philistines may be against him. Wherefore Saul said to David, Thou shalt this day be my son in law in the one of the twain.21 At sinabi ni Saul, Aking ibibigay sa kaniya siya, upang siya'y maging silo sa kaniya, at upang ang kamay ng mga Filisteo ay maging laban sa kaniya. Kaya't sinabing ikalawa ni Saul kay David: Ikaw ay magiging aking manugang sa araw na ito.
22 And Saul commanded his servants, saying, Commune with David secretly, and say, Behold, the king hath delight in thee, and all his servants love thee: now therefore be the king's son in law.22 At iniutos ni Saul sa kaniyang mga lingkod, na sinasabi, Makipagusap kayo kay David ng lihim, at inyong sabihin, Narito, kinatutuwaan ka ng hari at minamahal ka ng lahat ng kaniyang mga lingkod: ngayon nga ay maging manugang ka ng hari.
23 And Saul's servants spake those words in the ears of David. And David said, Seemeth it to you a light thing to be a king's son in law, seeing that I am a poor man, and lightly esteemed?23 At sinalita ng mga lingkod ni Saul ang mga salitang yaon sa pakinig ni David. At sinabi ni David, Inaakala ba ninyo na magaang bagay ang maging manugang ng hari, dangang ako'y isang dukhang tao at niwawalang kabuluhan?
24 And the servants of Saul told him, saying, On this manner spake David.24 At isinaysay ng mga lingkod ni Saul sa kaniya, na sinabi, Ganitong paraan nagsalita si David.
25 And Saul said, Thus shall ye say to David, The king desireth not any dowry, but an hundred foreskins of the Philistines, to be avenged of the king's enemies. But Saul thought to make David fall by the hand of the Philistines.25 At sinabi ni Saul, Ganito ang inyong sasabihin kay David: Hindi nagnanasa ang hari ng anomang bigaykaya, kundi isang daang balat ng masama ng mga Filisteo, upang mapanghigantihan ang mga kaaway ng hari. Ang balak nga ni Saul ay maibuwal si David sa pamamagitan ng kamay ng mga Filisteo.
26 And when his servants told David these words, it pleased David well to be the king's son in law: and the days were not expired.26 At nang saysayin ng kaniyang mga lingkod kay David ang mga salitang ito, ay ikinalugod na mabuti ni David na maging manugang siya ng hari. At ang mga araw ay hindi pa nagaganap;
27 Wherefore David arose and went, he and his men, and slew of the Philistines two hundred men; and David brought their foreskins, and they gave them in full tale to the king, that he might be the king's son in law. And Saul gave him Michal his daughter to wife.27 At tumindig si David at yumaon, siya at ang kaniyang mga lalake, at pumatay sa mga Filisteo ng dalawang daang lalake; at dinala ni David ang kanilang mga balat ng masama, at kaniyang ibinigay ng buong bilang sa hari, upang siya'y maging manugang ng hari. At ibinigay na asawa sa kaniya ni Saul si Michal na kaniyang anak na babae.
28 And Saul saw and knew that the LORD was with David, and that Michal Saul's daughter loved him.28 At nakita at nalaman ni Saul na ang Panginoon ay sumasa kay David; at sinisinta si David ni Michal na anak ni Saul.
29 And Saul was yet the more afraid of David; and Saul became David's enemy continually.29 At si Saul ay lalong natatakot kay David; at naging kaaway ni David si Saul na palagi.
30 Then the princes of the Philistines went forth: and it came to pass, after they went forth, that David behaved himself more wisely than all the servants of Saul; so that his name was much set by.30 Nang magkagayo'y lumabas ang mga pangulo ng mga Filisteo: at nangyari, na sa tuwing sila'y lumalabas ay nagpakabait si David kay sa lahat ng mga lingkod ni Saul; sa gayon ang kaniyang pangalan ay lalong namahal.
