2 Samuel 12:3-4

New American Standard Bible

Chapter 12

3 But the poor man had nothing at all except one little ewe lamb Which he bought and nurtured; And it grew up together with him and his children. It would eat scraps from him and drink from his cup and lie in his lap, And was like a daughter to him.
4 Now a visitor came to the wealthy man, And he could not bring himself to take any animal from his own flock or his own herd, To prepare for the traveler who had come to him; So he took the poor man’s ewe lamb and prepared it for the man who had come to him.'
King James Version

Chapter 12

3 But the poor man had nothing, save one little ewe lamb, which he had bought and nourished up: and it grew up together with him, and with his children; it did eat of his own meat, and drank of his own cup, and lay in his bosom, and was unto him as a daughter. 4 And there came a traveller unto the rich man, and he spared to take of his own flock and of his own herd, to dress for the wayfaring man that was come unto him; but took the poor man's lamb, and dressed it for the man that was come to him.
Christian Standard Bible

Chapter 12

3 but the poor man had nothing except one small ewe lamb that he had bought. He raised her, and she grew up with him and with his children. From his meager food she would eat, from his cup she would drink, and in his arms she would sleep. She was like a daughter to him. 4 Now a traveler came to the rich man, but the rich man could not bring himself to take one of his own sheep or cattle to prepare for the traveler who had come to him. Instead, he took the poor man's lamb and prepared it for his guest.
New Living Translation

Chapter 12

3 The poor man owned nothing but one little lamb he had bought. He raised that little lamb, and it grew up with his children. It ate from the man's own plate and drank from his cup. He cuddled it in his arms like a baby daughter. 4 One day a guest arrived at the home of the rich man. But instead of killing an animal from his own flock or herd, he took the poor man's lamb and killed it and prepared it for his guest.'
English Standard Version

Chapter 12

3 but the poor man had nothing but one little ewe lamb, which he had bought. And he brought it up, and it grew up with him and with his children. It used to eat of his morsel and drink from his cup and lie in his arms, and it was like a daughter to him. 4 Now there came a traveler to the rich man, and he was unwilling to take one of his own flock or herd to prepare for the guest who had come to him, but he took the poor man’s lamb and prepared it for the man who had come to him.”
New International Version

Chapter 12

3 but the poor man had nothing except one little ewe lamb he had bought. He raised it, and it grew up with him and his children. It shared his food, drank from his cup and even slept in his arms. It was like a daughter to him.
4 Now a traveler came to the rich man, but the rich man refrained from taking one of his own sheep or cattle to prepare a meal for the traveler who had come to him. Instead, he took the ewe lamb that belonged to the poor man and prepared it for the one who had come to him."

Chapter 12

3 Pero el pobre no tenía más que una corderita que él había comprado y criado, la cual había crecido junto con él y con sus hijos. Comía de su pan, bebía de su copa y dormía en su seno, y era como una hija para él. 4 Vino un viajero al hombre rico y éste no quiso tomar de sus ovejas ni de sus vacas para preparar comida para el caminante que había venido a él, sino que tomó la corderita de aquel hombre pobre y la preparó para el hombre que había venido a él.

Chapter 12

3 Pero el pobre no tenía más que una corderita Que él había comprado y criado, La cual había crecido junto con él y con sus hijos. Comía de su pan, bebía de su copa y dormía en su seno, Y era como una hija para él. 4 Vino un viajero a visitar al hombre rico Y éste no quiso tomar de sus ovejas ni de sus vacas Para preparar comida para el caminante que había venido a él, Sino que tomó la corderita de aquel hombre pobre y la preparó para el hombre que había venido a visitarlo.”
Nueva Versión Internacional

Chapter 12

3 en cambio, el pobre no tenía más que una sola ovejita que él mismo había comprado y criado. La ovejita creció con él y con sus hijos: comía de su plato, bebía de su vaso y dormía en su regazo. Era para ese hombre como su propia hija. 4 Pero sucedió que un viajero llegó de visita a casa del hombre rico y, como este no quería matar ninguna de sus propias ovejas o vacas para darle de comer al huésped, le quitó al hombre pobre su única ovejita.
Reina-Valera 1960

Chapter 12

3 pero el pobre no tenía más que una sola corderita, que él había comprado y criado, y que había crecido con él y con sus hijos juntamente, comiendo de su bocado y bebiendo de su vaso, y durmiendo en su seno; y la tenía como a una hija. 4 Y vino uno de camino al hombre rico; y éste no quiso tomar de sus ovejas y de sus vacas, para guisar para el caminante que había venido a él, sino que tomó la oveja de aquel hombre pobre, y la preparó para aquel que había venido a él.
Biblia del Jubileo

Chapter 12

3 mas el pobre no tenía más que una sola cordera, que él había comprado y criado, y que había crecido con él y con sus hijos juntamente, comiendo de su bocado, y bebiendo de su vaso, y durmiendo en su seno; y la tenía como a una hija. 4 Y vino uno de camino al hombre rico; y él no quiso tomar de sus ovejas y de sus vacas, para guisar al caminante que le había venido, sino que tomó la oveja de aquel hombre pobre, y la aderezó para el varón que le había venido.
