David PWNS Teh Amalekites

1 david an his doodz reachd ziklag on teh third dai. Nao teh amalekitez had raidd teh negev an ziklag. They had attackd ziklag an burnd it,2 an had taken captiv teh women an all hoo wuz in it, both young an old. They killd none ov them, but carrid them off as they went on their wai.3 when david an his doodz came 2 ziklag, they findz it destroyd by fire an their wivez an sons an daughters taken captiv.

4 so david an his doodz wept aloud til they had no strength left 2 weep.5 davidz 2 wivez had been capturd—ahinoam ov jezreel an abigail, teh widow ov nabal ov carmel.6 david wuz greatly distresd cuz teh doodz wuz talkin ov stonin him; each wan wuz bittr in spirit cuz ov his sons an daughters. But david findz strength in da lord his ceilin cat.

7 den david sed 2 abiathar teh priest, teh son ov ahimelech, "brin me teh efod." abiathar brought it 2 him,8 an david inquird ov teh lord, "shall i pursue dis raidin party? Will i overtaek them?" "pursue them," he anzwerd. "u will certainly overtaek them an succed in da rescue."

9 david an teh 6 hundrd doodz wif him came 2 teh besor ravine, wer sum stayd behind,10 4 2 hundrd doodz wuz 2 exhaustd 2 cros teh ravine. But david an 4 hundrd doodz continud teh pursuit.11 they findz an egyptian in field an brought him 2 david. They gaev him watr 2 drink an fud 2 eat-12 part ov caek ov presd figs an 2 cakez ov raisins. He eatd an wuz revivd, 4 he had not eaten any fud or drunk any watr 4 3 dais an 3 nitez.

13 david askd him, "2 whom do u belong, an wer do u come frum?" He sed, "im an egyptian, teh slave ov an amalekite. Mah mastah abandond me when i became ill 3 dais ago.14 we raidd teh negev ov teh kerethitez an teh territory belongin 2 judah an teh negev ov caleb. An we burnd ziklag."15 david askd him, "can u lead me down 2 dis raidin party?" He anzwerd, "swear 2 me before ceilin cat dat u will not kill me or hand me ovar 2 mah mastah, an im gonna taek u down 2 them."

16 he led david down, an thar they wuz, scatterd ovar teh countryside, eatin, drinkin an revelin cuz ov teh great amount ov plundr they had taken frum teh land ov teh filistinez an frum judah.17 david fought them frum dusk til teh evenin ov teh next dai, an none ov them got away, except 4 hundrd young doodz hoo rode off on camels an fld.

18 david recoverd evrythin teh amalekitez had taken, includin his 2 wivez.19 nothin wuz misin: young or old, boi or gurl, plundr or anythin else they had taken. David brought evrythin bak.20 he took all teh flockz an herdz, an his doodz droov them ahead ov teh othr livestock, sayin, "dis ar teh davidz plundr."

21 den david came 2 teh 2 hundrd doodz hoo had been 2 exhaustd 2 follow him an hoo wuz left behind at teh besor ravine. They came out 2 meet david an teh peeps wif him. As david an his doodz approachd, he greetd them.22 but all teh evil doodz an troublemakers among davidz followers sed, "cuz they did not go out wif us, we will not share wif them teh plundr we recoverd. Howevr, each man cud taek his wife an children an go."

23 david replid, "no, mah brothers, u must not do dat wif wut teh lord has given us. He has protectd us an handd ovar 2 us teh forcez dat came against us.24 hoo will listen 2 wut u say? Teh share ov teh man hoo stayd wif teh suppliez iz 2 be teh same as dat ov him hoo went down 2 teh battle. All will share alike."25 david made dis statute an ordinance 4 israel frum dat dai 2 dis.

26 when david arrivd in ziklag, he sent sum ov teh plundr 2 teh elders ov judah, hoo wuz his frenz, sayin, "her iz present 4 u frum teh plundr ov teh lordz enemiez.27 he sent it 2 dose hoo wuz in bethel, ramoth negev an jattir;28 2 dose in aror, sifmoth, eshtemoa29 an racal; 2 dose in da towns ov teh jerahmeelitez an teh kenitez;30 2 dose in hormah, bor ashan, athach31 an hebron; an 2 dose in all teh othr placez wer david an his doodz had roamd.
