New American Standard Bible

Chapter 15

25 And the king said to Zadok, 'Return the ark of God to the city. If I find favor in the sight of the LORD, then He will bring me back and show me both it and His habitation. 26 But if He says this: ‘I have no delight in you,’ then here I am, let Him do to me as seems good to Him.' 27 The king also said to Zadok the priest, 'Are you not a seer? Return to the city in peace, and your two sons with you, your son Ahimaaz and Jonathan the son of Abiathar. 28 See, I am going to wait at the river crossing places of the wilderness until word comes from you to inform me.' 29 So Zadok and Abiathar returned the ark of God to Jerusalem and remained there.
30 And David was going up the ascent of the Mount of Olives, weeping as he went, and his head was covered, and he was walking barefoot. Then all the people who were with him each covered his own head, and they were going up, weeping as they went. 31 Now someone informed David, saying, 'Ahithophel is among the conspirators with Absalom.' And David said, 'LORD, please make the advice of Ahithophel foolish.'
32 It happened as David was coming to the summit, where God was worshiped, that behold, Hushai the Archite met him with his coat torn, and dust on his head. 33 And David said to him, 'If you go over with me, then you will become a burden to me.

Chapter 15

25 And the king said unto Zadok, Carry back the ark of God into the city: if I shall find favour in the eyes of the LORD, he will bring me again, and shew me both it, and his habitation: 26 But if he thus say, I have no delight in thee; behold, here am I, let him do to me as seemeth good unto him. 27 The king said also unto Zadok the priest, Art not thou a seer? return into the city in peace, and your two sons with you, Ahimaaz thy son, and Jonathan the son of Abiathar. 28 See, I will tarry in the plain of the wilderness, until there come word from you to certify me. 29 Zadok therefore and Abiathar carried the ark of God again to Jerusalem: and they tarried there. 30 And David went up by the ascent of mount Olivet, and wept as he went up, and had his head covered, and he went barefoot: and all the people that was with him covered every man his head, and they went up, weeping as they went up.
31 And one told David, saying, Ahithophel is among the conspirators with Absalom. And David said, O LORD, I pray thee, turn the counsel of Ahithophel into foolishness. 32 And it came to pass, that when David was come to the top of the mount, where he worshipped God, behold, Hushai the Archite came to meet him with his coat rent, and earth upon his head: 33 Unto whom David said, If thou passest on with me, then thou shalt be a burden unto me:

25 Then the king instructed Zadok, "Return the ark of God to the city. If I find favor with the Lord, he will bring me back and allow me to see both it and its dwelling place. 26 However, if he should say, 'I do not delight in you,' then here I am--he can do with me whatever pleases him."
27 The king also said to the priest Zadok, "Look, return to the city in peace and your two sons with you: your son Ahimaaz and Abiathar's son Jonathan. 28 Remember, I'll wait at the fords of the wilderness until word comes from you to inform me." 29 So Zadok and Abiathar returned the ark of God to Jerusalem and stayed there.
30 David was climbing the slope of the Mount of Olives, weeping as he ascended. His head was covered, and he was walking barefoot. All of the people with him covered their heads and went up, weeping as they ascended.
31 Then someone reported to David, "Ahithophel is among the conspirators with Absalom.""Lord," David pleaded, "please turn the counsel of Ahithophel into foolishness! "
32 When David came to the summit where he used to worship God, Hushai the Archite was there to meet him with his robe torn and dust on his head. 33 David said to him, "If you go away with me, you'll be a burden to me,

25 Then the king instructed Zadok to take the Ark of God back into the city. 'If the LORD sees fit,' David said, 'he will bring me back to see the Ark and the Tabernacle again. 26 But if he is through with me, then let him do what seems best to him.'
27 The king also told Zadok the priest, 'Look, here is my plan. You and Abiathar should return quietly to the city with your son Ahimaaz and Abiathar's son Jonathan. 28 I will stop at the shallows of the Jordan River and wait there for a report from you.' 29 So Zadok and Abiathar took the Ark of God back to the city and stayed there.
30 David walked up the road to the Mount of Olives, weeping as he went. His head was covered and his feet were bare as a sign of mourning. And the people who were with him covered their heads and wept as they climbed the hill. 31 When someone told David that his adviser Ahithophel was now backing Absalom, David prayed, 'O LORD, let Ahithophel give Absalom foolish advice!'
32 When David reached the summit of the Mount of Olives where people worshiped God, Hushai the Arkite was waiting there for him. Hushai had torn his clothing and put dirt on his head as a sign of mourning. 33 But David told him, 'If you go with me, you will only be a burden.

27 The king also said to Zadok the priest, 'Do you understand? Go back to the city with my blessing. Take your son Ahimaaz with you, and also Abiathar's son Jonathan. You and Abiathar return with your two sons. 28 I will wait at the fords in the wilderness until word comes from you to inform me.' 29 So Zadok and Abiathar took the ark of God back to Jerusalem and stayed there.
30 But David continued up the Mount of Olives, weeping as he went; his head was covered and he was barefoot. All the people with him covered their heads too and were weeping as they went up. 31 Now David had been told, 'Ahithophel is among the conspirators with Absalom.' So David prayed, 'LORD, turn Ahithophel's counsel into foolishness.'
32 When David arrived at the summit, where people used to worship God, Hushai the Arkite was there to meet him, his robe torn and dust on his head. 33 David said to him, 'If you go with me, you will be a burden to me.

Chapter 15

25 Y el rey dijo a Sadoc: Haz volver el arca de Dios a la ciudad, que si hallo gracia ante los ojos del SEÑOR, me hará volver y me mostrará tanto el arca como su morada. 26 Pero si El dijera así: “No me complazco en ti ”, mira, aquí estoy, que haga conmigo lo que bien le parezca. 27 También el rey dijo al sacerdote Sadoc: ¿No eres vidente ? Regresa en paz a la ciudad, y vuestros dos hijos con vosotros, tu hijo Ahimaas, y Jonatán, hijo de Abiatar. 28 Mirad, esperaré en los vados del desierto hasta que venga palabra vuestra para informarme. 29 Sadoc y Abiatar hicieron volver el arca de Dios a Jerusalén, y se quedaron allí.
30 Subía David la cuesta del monte de los Olivos, y mientras iba, lloraba con la cabeza cubierta y los pies descalzos. Y todo el pueblo que iba con él cubrió cada uno su cabeza, e iban llorando mientras subían. 31 Alguien dio aviso a David, diciendo: Ahitofel está entre los conspiradores con Absalón. Y David dijo: Oh SEÑOR, te ruego, haz necio el consejo de Ahitofel. 32 Sucedió que mientras David se acercaba a la cumbre donde se adoraba a Dios, he aquí, Husai arquita salió a su encuentro con su manto desgarrado y polvo sobre la cabeza. 33 Y David le dijo: Si pasas conmigo, entonces me serás una carga.

25 Luego le dijo el rey al sacerdote Sadoc: ?Devuelve el arca de Dios a la ciudad. Si cuento con el favor del SEÑOR, él hará que yo regrese y vuelva a ver el arca y el lugar donde él reside. 26 Pero, si el SEÑOR me hace saber que no le agrado, quedo a su merced y puede hacer conmigo lo que mejor le parezca.
27 También le dijo: ?Como tú eres vidente, puedes volver tranquilo a la ciudad con Abiatar, y llevarte contigo a tu hijo Ajimaz y a Jonatán hijo de Abiatar. 28 Yo me quedaré en los llanos del desierto hasta que ustedes me informen de la situación.
29 Entonces Sadoc y Abiatar volvieron a Jerusalén con el arca de Dios, y allí se quedaron. 30 David, por su parte, subió al monte de los Olivos llorando, con la cabeza cubierta y los pies descalzos. También todos los que lo acompañaban se cubrieron la cabeza y subieron llorando. 31 En eso le informaron a David que Ajitofel se había unido a la conspiración de Absalón. Entonces David oró: «SEÑOR, haz que fracasen los planes de Ajitofel».
32 Cuando David llegó a la cumbre del monte, donde se rendía culto a Dios, se encontró con Husay el arquita, que en señal de duelo llevaba las vestiduras rasgadas y la cabeza cubierta de ceniza.
33 David le dijo: ?Si vienes conmigo, vas a serme una carga.

25 Pero dijo el rey a Sadoc: Vuelve el arca de Dios a la ciudad. Si yo hallare gracia ante los ojos de Jehová, él hará que vuelva, y me dejará verla y a su tabernáculo. 26 Y si dijere: No me complazco en ti; aquí estoy, haga de mí lo que bien le pareciere. 27 Dijo además el rey al sacerdote Sadoc: ¿No eres tú el vidente? Vuelve en paz a la ciudad, y con vosotros vuestros dos hijos; Ahimaas tu hijo, y Jonatán hijo de Abiatar. 28 Mirad, yo me detendré en los vados del desierto, hasta que venga respuesta de vosotros que me dé aviso. 29 Entonces Sadoc y Abiatar volvieron el arca de Dios a Jerusalén, y se quedaron allá.
30 Y David subió la cuesta de los Olivos; y la subió llorando, llevando la cabeza cubierta y los pies descalzos. También todo el pueblo que tenía consigo cubrió cada uno su cabeza, e iban llorando mientras subían. 31 Y dieron aviso a David, diciendo: Ahitofel está entre los que conspiraron con Absalón. Entonces dijo David: Entorpece ahora, oh Jehová, el consejo de Ahitofel.
32 Cuando David llegó a la cumbre del monte para adorar allí a Dios, he aquí Husai arquita que le salió al encuentro, rasgados sus vestidos, y tierra sobre su cabeza. 33 Y le dijo David: Si pasares conmigo, me serás carga.

Vuélvete en paz a la ciudad; y con vosotros vuestros dos hijos, tu hijo Ahimaas, y Jonatán hijo de Abiatar. 28 Mirad, yo me detendré en los campos del desierto, hasta que venga respuesta de vosotros que me dé aviso. 29 Entonces Sadoc y Abiatar volvieron el arca de Dios a Jerusalén; y se estuvieron allá. 30 Y David subió la cuesta de las olivas; y la subió llorando, llevando la cabeza cubierta, y los pies descalzos. También todo el pueblo que tenía consigo cubrió cada uno su cabeza, y subieron llorando así como subían. 31 Y dieron aviso a David, diciendo: Ahitofel también está con los que conspiraron con Absalón. Entonces dijo David: Enloquece ahora, oh SEÑOR, el consejo de Ahitofel. 32 Y cuando David llegó a la cumbre del monte para adorar allí a Dios, he aquí Husai araquita que le salió al encuentro, trayendo rota su ropa, y tierra sobre su cabeza. 33 Y le dijo David: Si pasares conmigo, me serás de carga;
