Riveduta Bibbia (1927)         

← 2 Samuel 19   2 Samuel 21 →

1 Or quivi si trovava un uomo scellerato per nome Sheba, figliuolo di Bicri, un Beniaminita, il quale sonò la tromba, e disse: "Noi non abbiamo nulla da spartire con Davide, non abbiamo nulla in comune col figliuolo d’Isai! O Israele, ciascuno alla sua tenda!"

2 E tutti gli uomini di Israele ripresero la via delle alture, separandosi da Davide per seguire Sheba, figliuolo di Bicri; ma quei di Giuda non si staccarono dal loro re, e l’accompagnarono dal Giordano fino a Gerusalemme.

3 Quando Davide fu giunto a casa sua a Gerusalemme, prese le dieci concubine che avea lasciate a custodia della casa, e le fece rinchiudere; egli somministrava loro gli alimenti, ma non si accostava ad esse; e rimasero così rinchiuse, vivendo come vedove, fino al giorno della loro morte.

4 Poi il re disse ad Amasa: "Radunami tutti gli uomini di Giuda entro tre giorni; e tu trovati qui".

5 Amasa dunque partì per adunare gli uomini di Giuda; ma tardò oltre il tempo fissatogli dal re.

6 Allora Davide disse ad Abishai: "Sheba, figliuolo di Bicri, ci farà adesso più male di Absalom; prendi tu la gente del tuo signore, e inseguilo onde non trovi delle città fortificate e ci sfugga".

7 E Abishai partì, seguito dalla gente di Joab, dai Kerethei, dai Pelethei, e da tutti gli uomini più valorosi; e usciron da Gerusalemme per inseguire Sheba, figliuolo di Bicri.

8 Si trovavano presso alla gran pietra che è in Gabaon, quando Amasa venne loro incontro. Or Joab indossava la sua veste militare sulla quale cingeva una spada che, attaccata al cinturino, gli pendea dai fianchi nel suo fodero; mentre Joab si faceva innanzi, la spada gli cadde.

9 Joab disse ad Amasa: "Stai tu bene, fratel mio?" E con la destra prese Amasa per la barba, per baciarlo.

10 Amasa non fece attenzione alla spada che Joab aveva in mano; e Joab lo colpì nel ventre si che gli intestini si sparsero per terra; non lo colpì una seconda volta e quegli morì. Poi Joab ed Abishai, suo fratello, si misero a inseguire Sheba, figliuolo di Bicri.

11 Uno de’ giovani di Joab era rimasto presso Amasa, e diceva: "Chi vuol bene a Joab e chi è per Davide segua Joab!"

12 Intanto Amasa si rotolava nel sangue in mezzo alla strada. E quell’uomo vedendo che tutto il popolo si fermava, strascinò Amasa fuori della strada in un campo, e gli buttò addosso un mantello; perché avea visto che tutti quelli che gli arrivavan vicino, si fermavano;

13 ma quand’esso fu tolto dalla strada, tutti passavano al séguito di Joab per dar dietro a Sheba figliuolo di Bicri.

14 Joab passò per mezzo a tutte le tribù d’Israele fino ad Abel ed a Beth-Maaca. E tutto il fior fiore degli uomini si radunò e lo seguì.

15 E vennero e assediarono Sheba in Abel-Beth-Maaca, e innalzarono contro la città un bastione che dominava le fortificazioni; e tutta la gente ch’era con Joab batteva in breccia le mura per abbatterle.

16 Allora una donna di senno gridò dalla città: "Udite, udite! Vi prego, dite a Joab di appressarsi, ché gli voglio parlare!"

17 E quand’egli si fu avvicinato, la donna gli chiese: "Sei tu Joab?" Egli rispose: "Son io". Allora ella gli disse: "Ascolta la parola della tua serva". Egli rispose: "Ascolto".

18 Ed ella riprese: "Una volta si soleva dire: Si domandi consiglio ad Abel! ed era affar finito.

19 Abel è una delle città più pacifiche e più fedeli in Israele; e tu cerchi di far perire una città che è una madre in Israele. Perché vuoi tu distruggere l’eredità dell’Eterno?"

20 Joab rispose: "Lungi, lungi da me l’idea di distruggere e di guastare.

21 Il fatto non sta così; ma un uomo della contrada montuosa d’Efraim, per nome Sheba, figliuolo di Bicri, ha levato la mano contro il re, contro Davide. Consegnatemi lui solo, ed io m’allontanerò dalla città". E la donna disse a Joab: "Ecco, la sua testa ti sarà gettata dalle mura".

22 Allora la donna si rivolse a tutto il popolo col suo savio consiglio; e quelli tagliaron la testa a Sheba, figliuolo di Bicri, e la gettarono a Joab. E questi fece sonar la tromba; tutti si dispersero lungi dalla città, e ognuno se ne andò alla sua tenda. E Joab tornò a Gerusalemme presso il re.

23 Joab era a capo di tutto l’esercito d’Israele; Benaia, figliuolo di Jehoiada, era a capo dei Kerethei e dei Pelethei;

24 Adoram era preposto ai tributi; Joshafat, figliuolo di Ahilud, era archivista;

25 Sceia era segretario; Tsadok ed Abiathar erano sacerdoti;

26 (H20-25) òe anche Ira di Jair era ministro di stato di Davide.
