Chapter 4 - 2 Samuel

1 And when Saul's son heard that Abner was dead in Hebron, his hands were feeble, and all the Israelites were troubled.1 At nang mabalitaan ni Is-boseth, na anak ni Saul, na si Abner ay patay na sa Hebron, ang kaniyang mga kamay ay nanghina, at ang lahat na taga Israel ay nabagabag.
2 And Saul's son had two men that were captains of bands: the name of the one was Baanah, and the name of the other Rechab, the sons of Rimmon a Beerothite, of the children of Benjamin: (for Beeroth also was reckoned to Benjamin:2 At si Is-boseth, na anak ni Saul, ay may dalawang lalake na mga punong kawal sa mga pulutong: ang pangalan ng isa ay Baana, at ang pangalan ng isa ay Rechab, na mga anak ni Rimmon na Beerothita sa mga anak ni Benjamin: (sapagka't ang Beeroth din naman ay ibinilang sa Benjamin:
3 And the Beerothites fled to Gittaim, and were sojourners there until this day.)3 At ang mga Beerothita ay nagsitakas sa Githaim, at nangakipamayan doon hanggang sa araw na ito.)
4 And Jonathan, Saul's son, had a son that was lame of his feet. He was five years old when the tidings came of Saul and Jonathan out of Jezreel, and his nurse took him up, and fled: and it came to pass, as she made haste to flee, that he fell, and became lame. And his name was Mephibosheth.4 Si Jonathan nga na anak ni Saul, ay may isang anak na pilay sa kaniyang mga paa. Siya'y may limang taon nang dumating ang balita tungkol kay Saul at kay Jonathan na mula sa Jezreel, at kinalong siya ng kaniyang yaya at tumakas: at nangyari, habang siya'y nagmamadali ng pagtakas, na siya'y nabagsak, at naging pilay. At ang kaniyang pangalan ay Mephiboseth.
5 And the sons of Rimmon the Beerothite, Rechab and Baanah, went, and came about the heat of the day to the house of Ishbosheth, who lay on a bed at noon.5 At ang mga anak ni Rimmon na Beerothita, na si Rechab at si Baana, ay nagsiyaon at nagsiparoon ng may kainitan ang araw sa bahay ni Is-boseth, na doon siya nagpahinga sa katanghalian tapat.
6 And they came thither into the midst of the house, as though they would have fetched wheat; and they smote him under the fifth rib: and Rechab and Baanah his brother escaped.6 At sila'y nagsipasok doon sa gitna ng bahay, na parang sila'y kukuha ng trigo; at kanilang sinaktan siya sa tiyan; at si Rechab at si Baana na kaniyang kapatid ay nangagtanan.
7 For when they came into the house, he lay on his bed in his bedchamber, and they smote him, and slew him, and beheaded him, and took his head, and gat them away through the plain all night.7 Sapagka't nang sila nga'y magsipasok sa bahay habang siya'y nahihiga sa kaniyang higaan sa kaniyang silid, kanilang sinaktan siya, at pinatay siya, at pinugutan siya ng ulo, at dinala ang kaniyang ulo at nagpatuloy ng lakad sa Araba buong gabi.
8 And they brought the head of Ishbosheth unto David to Hebron, and said to the king, Behold the head of Ishbosheth the son of Saul thine enemy, which sought thy life; and the LORD hath avenged my lord the king this day of Saul, and of his seed.8 At kanilang dinala ang ulo ni Is-boseth kay David sa Hebron, at sinabi nila sa hari, Tingnan mo ang ulo ni Is-boseth na anak ni Saul na iyong kaaway na umuusig ng iyong buhay; at ipinanghiganti ng Panginoon ang aking panginoon na hari sa araw na ito kay Saul, at sa kaniyang binhi.
9 And David answered Rechab and Baanah his brother, the sons of Rimmon the Beerothite, and said unto them, As the LORD liveth, who hath redeemed my soul out of all adversity,9 At sinagot ni David si Rechab at si Baana na kaniyang kapatid, na mga anak ni Rimmon na Beerothita, at sinabi sa kanila, Buhay ang Panginoon na siyang tumubos ng aking kaluluwa sa buong kahirapan.
10 When one told me, saying, Behold, Saul is dead, thinking to have brought good tidings, I took hold of him, and slew him in Ziklag, who thought that I would have given him a reward for his tidings:10 Nang saysayin sa akin ng isa, na sinasabi, Narito, si Saul ay namatay, na inakala niyang nagdala siya ng mabuting balita, ay aking hinawakan siya, at pinatay ko siya sa Siclag na siyang kagantihang ibinigay ko sa kaniya dahil sa kaniyang balita.
11 How much more, when wicked men have slain a righteous person in his own house upon his bed? shall I not therefore now require his blood of your hand, and take you away from the earth?11 Gaano pa kaya kung pinatay ng masasamang lalake ang isang matuwid na tao sa kaniyang sariling bahay, sa kaniyang higaan, hindi ko ba sisiyasatin ngayon ang kaniyang dugo sa inyong kamay, at aalisin kayo sa lupa?
12 And David commanded his young men, and they slew them, and cut off their hands and their feet, and hanged them up over the pool in Hebron. But they took the head of Ishbosheth, and buried it in the sepulchre of Abner in Hebron.12 At iniutos ni David sa kaniyang mga bataan, at pinatay nila sila, at pinutol ang kanilang mga kamay at ang kanilang mga paa, at mga ibinitin sa tabi ng tangke sa Hebron. Nguni't kanilang kinuha ang ulo ni Is-boseth, at inilibing sa libingan ni Abner sa Hebron.
