THE SLAVONIC LIFE OF DAVID
WORD of David, king and prophet of the LORD, HOW born and how he began to reign
Iesey man was an unusually strong and courageous in his heart devoted to God and served God diligently. And Jezebel his wife begat eight sons. And they put the board between them, to withdraw them from each other and do not mix in a carnal union. And Jezebel called the servant, who had Iesey in mercy, named Andrew, and said to him: "If you're going to keep his master hard, give you rich gifts, and if it would require a woman me know, do not hide it from me in any case ". Andrew promised: "Let it be according to your word."
So keep your vow Iesey and Jezebel 12. But one day said to his servant Iesey Andrew: "Find me a woman, because a woman wants my heart." Andrew said: "Sir, I know a beautiful woman, but she is far away from here"; Iesey was at this time in his own house, and in the country, far from home. And he said to him: "Go, bring it to me." And he gave him gold. He also went to Jezebel, mistress, and told her everything. She came at night, and copulated with her Iesey without knowing his wife.
Then she conceived the baby, and birth, and gave him the name David in Hebrew - is stolen. And he discerned Iesey about this, and secretly raised him. When David had passed six years, took him to the sheep, and gave the sheep herders. And who is he came from, did not know anybody. And he grew meek and humble, and his mind grasped the game on any instrument - on timbrels, on the organs, and learned all the songs. And when to play it, the sheep and oxen, and all animals were galloping.
And the LORD sent a prophet to poured oil on David's head as a sign of what kind of reign of Abraham. Dathan prophet came to the house Ieseya and said, "Bring your children, and I shall refer to them stamped." Iesey led eight sons. Dathan Prophet said: "No, it is your son, which God requires." Iesey prayed: "Lord, I have no other children, only these." The Prophet stood his Iesey was desperate. His wife also, Jezebel came and opened Ieseyu her husband the truth and said, "He is our son, but did not dare to tell you, afraid that you will take my words for fraud." And he commanded the lead Iesey David. When I saw the Prophet David was overjoyed. And poured the oil on his head, and gave him the seal. And he said to him: "The Lord bless thee, and blessed be thy name, and perish forever. Thy seed shall raise up the throne of cherubim, and your daughter will be above the cherubim. " Iesey also surprised to hear, and said, "How did he take this greatness? He taught only feed the sheep. " With that and retired prophet.
Saul, the king reigned in the land and ruled over all that live. But entered into the spirit of Saul and the demons tormented him, and would not let him sleep, and he did not have a moment's peace. And one man told Saul, and said, "There is a resident in the land of Midian named Iesey and he has sheep shepherd - great musician, wonderfully played the pipe, and the cattle, and the whole nature of the dance, when he starts to play. Maybe you would benefit from it. " Then Saul sent, and David. When David played, you unclean spirit calmed down in Saul for three days. When David left, again the devil began to torment him. And Saul plotted to give his daughter in marriage to David, that he has played and Saul had delivered from the spirit of the devils.
While Goliath backed down from his father, King Saul, and, combined with the haldeyanami, conquered all the land of Saul, because the mother was haldeyankoy Goliath. And he came to his father Saul to Jerusalem. And Saul said to David, "Why do not thy heart grieved about it? You see, he rejected my son from me because of you, and conquered all my land, and now wants to take Jerusalem. You, David, is not in a hurry? "
The next morning Goliath besieged Jerusalem. David put on three armor, and leaned on two spears, and jumped by 30 cubits. And the people saw it, they were astonished. And David went up against Goliath troops. Saul was not like Goliath, and pointed it at David as the one who killed him. When David saw Goliath, with the fury let him his horse. David did pray, "Good God, bright and glorious." Goliath horse stumbled, and the sword of Goliath was stuck in his heart. David drew the sword and cut off Goliath's head. And he returned to King Saul.
And when the unclean spirit had left Saul, and he plotted to kill David, and called a warrior from the land of the Chaldeans by name Vastrala that he killed David, but because it will give him a wife of David. Then came the morning Vastrala in rich costumes (to Saul), ready to behead David and David's wife get.
And the bed was grieving wife of David. David asked, "Why are you so sad as ever?" She replied, "Oh, if you only knew what an evil plot is made against you," David said, "Why did not you warn me?" And she told him everything. And he said to her: "Is it true, what do you assure me?" She said, "is my witness made the heaven and the earth, I will not accept any other man."
David took a servant and secretly fled and hid in a cave called Muhli. And he was there 7 months, constantly repeating, "Remember, O Lord, David and all his meekness." And King Saul wanted to behead him and sent all over the earth to find it. And searched the mountains and caves and swamps - and never found. They came to the cave where David was hiding, but seeing the cave, overgrown with cobwebs left. His wife clothed in sackcloth, and then lying on the ground, crying.
And the angel of the Lord appeared to David and told him, "Go out and stand on a place called Sukhiy, and the Lord will be there with you." David went out, obsessed with a great fear, and stood on the spot where the Lord commanded him, and to pray, "God, Holiness, heavenly King, look now with its immense height." And all the people saw David, and unanimously saluted him. Saul had heard this and, enraged, jumped on his horse and drove it to David. He took a stone and put it in a sling, and turned to the sky, and prayed, and threw and hit Saul in the eye. And the fallen king. David took out his sword and killed him. And famous.
And the king sat on the throne of Saul. And the father of his wife, Absalom Krasnoglava. And David's wife died. And after he became bloodthirsty and disgrace, murderer and adulterer. Husband was a man of fair and noble named Uriah. He had a beautiful wife. And David delight. She did not want to, for she was faithful to God and her husband. David sent Uriah to the battle, to destroy him. And they killed him.
And he was angry at God, and sent an angel and a prophet Dathan to reprove his prophet, and if he repents, his angel to kill mercilessly. And to appear before David the prophet, saying, "Judge me, Lord, my court." The king said, "Tell me what you have." The Prophet said: "A man had two hundred and nine sheep, I had one. He ruined me and gave death, and took my sheep, and then she bore him Solomon. " David said: "Truly, this man deserves a cruel death." The Prophet said: "It's you is." David fell on his face and looked around, saw the angel in the image of a warrior holding a sword, and prayed, "Have mercy upon me, O God, according to thy great mercy." And Solomon showing, said: "My sin is ever before me." Then the angel took the sword from him.
His son Absalom firstborn matured and renounced his father, and all her great men with him, and took all the land and the city. And they entered in, shut David for three years, a great evil suffering from his son Absalom, dry skin and bones gnawed cooked. Absalom asked Solomon, saying, "Give me an army, and you sit on the throne and be king of the universe." David did not know what to do. And Solomon said to him, saying, "Tell me, father, what weapon you possessed with youth?" David said, "O son, do not know any weapons, only a hand sling." Solomon said, "Father, father, this is truly your gun with him beat you Goliath and Saul terrible king. With this weapon you obtained the kingdom. Again, now pleading with God, who has called before, but will save you and now. "
David took the three stones and put in a sling with a prayer: "In the Name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit," and threw the army, and the army of the Lord broke and hit invisible. And crush the army. Then drove two ten thousand, one - one thousand. Fleeing Absalom wind tossed his hair, and he caught a branch and hung. Overtaken, Solomon cut off his head and brought it to David. David saw wept. Solomon said, "Dad, what are you crying, do not you remember how much evil he hath done to you?" David said, "Oh son, I have begotten me weep, for he was the son of a good wife."
Our God the glory forever. Amen.
WORD ABOUT Psalter
WORD ABOUT hymnals, as written WAS DAVID KING
When David swore to the Lord, the God of Jacob has promised that if he reigns, then try to find the sanctuary of the Lord. And he sat down to write the Psalms. And did not know where the idea was taken, as if the angel was that wrote.
A nobleman named LEOR wanted to talk alone with the king and the king told him, "Come in the night and told me that he wanted to say." LEOR also came as the king at night and saw a young man whispering in his ear to the king. And not LEOR appeared before the king, and went out of the loft Tsareva. The next morning, when he arrived, the king asked him, "What did not come to tell me your secret? But come back in the evening and tell me. " Again came LEOR night and saw a young man light, brighter than the sun, the king's ear speaker. And again retired. And in the morning came to the king. Then the king said to him angrily: "Why did not come, as I told you?" And LEOR said: "My lord, O king, I visited three times and never found you one." Again, the king asked him, and ordered, "Come in the evening."
And when evening came LEOR to the king, the king said to him: "Here a man whom he had seen you before?" And LEOR replied: "Mr. King, his countenance was like fire." And he knew the king, the angel of the Lord tells him the idea and way to compose poems psaltyrnyh.
There is a swamp near the palace of the Tsar, near the secret loft Tsareva. And toads emit cries, when he wrote. David commanded his servants, toads disperse the burning straw, not to scream. And then one night when David saw a huge toad, flat on his writing. And he threw it. And again I saw it a second time. And he thought of his writing, and it seemed to David that it is a great ghost. But the third time he had found it in writing. And David said, "utterly destroy you, the devil, for what to do harm to me." Then the frog said, "I will not let you praise God as you do not let me."
Then the king commanded the servants of David withdraw swamps that evil did not do those frogs. Immediately wail all toads. And David spake: "Let every breath praise the Lord."
David wrote in the Psalms as the Psalter of 300 and 60, and 5. Then King David built a small casket and Psalms, sealed, placed in a casket, and the Gulf of tin, cast into the sea in its conception and said, "If my word is true, and drawing the Psalms God willing, we will come out of the sea this casket and writing, stored in it. "
And Psalms remained at sea for 80 years. And after the death of David, Solomon threw net into the sea and found online casket tin. And print it out and Solomon found in the Psalms of David his father, only recorded Psalms 100 and 50, and 3. Both preached the world and put them in the cathedral church, which is now praising the Most High God.
But many years later because of the frequent capture of Jerusalem confused psalms and songs, composed by David. Again, the prophet Ezra sought out and gathered 150 psalms, but they are not arranged in order, not as if David had written. And the world is full of singing Psalms.
And our Lord Jesus Christ shortly before our years in the same place commanded his disciples to abandon net into the sea and caught fish of 100 and 50, and 3. As David and Solomon filled world psaltyrnym teaching and the apostles saturated world of divinity and true faith. Pisces - the New Testament and the baptism of the Lord in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord, it is the glory now and always.
LEGEND OF David and Bathsheba
David, the great king, the nature of the birth was the gentleness and simple, and gentle, loved and honored Saul children.
And at a time when he stood on the wards, I saw the wife of Uriah, bathing in his garden, and told her to bring to her, and made her adultery. And her husband, Uriah, sent against the enemy in the battle and ordered to kill him.
Nathan the prophet also knew when David plotted to commit adultery and murder, and predicted that he would die born baby. And he died, but he was born Solomon by Bathsheba, wife of Uriah.
And for what crime God sent the prophet Nathan to David, and said, "Thus says the Lord choose thee one of the three - or have I created a three-year famine in your land, or three months to be run from their enemies, or three days will dominate death in your land ". Then David sighed, saddened to depths of his soul, and said: "I would rather be at the mercy of the living God, for his great generosity, rather than in the power of the human." I chose David's death.
Then came the day of death. God sent down death to Israel, from morning to afternoon 70,000 people died. And the angel of God, his hand toward Jerusalem to destroy the people living in it. And David prayed to the Lord God, when I saw an angel, ruining the people, and said, "This, O Lord, I have sinned, I pastor, the evil done, but they are sheep, what evil done? Let it be, Lord, your anger on me, to thy servant in the house of my father. " And merciful Savior commanded the angel, "Stop your hand."
David repented of their sin and built an altar to the Lord. And having lived virtuously, acceptable to God and prayed, slept blissfully sleep, passed into eternal life, having lived in their old age with dignity.
THE SLAVONIC LIFE OF SOLOMON
(...) And at that time Solomon gave a great feast to his people. Then brought before the king two female prostitutes, and one woman said, "I am in trouble, my lord. I and this friend of mine - we live in the same house, where both were born. I have a son. And on the third day after I gave birth, and the woman gave birth to a son. We just live together, and there is no one with us in our home. That night, the woman's son died because she overlaid it. And now, standing in the night, she took my hand and put my boy to sleep in his bed, and laid her dead boy to me. I got up in the morning to feed the baby and found him dead. Then I figured out that it was not my son, which I did bear. " And the other woman said, "No, my son is alive, and it's your dead." And they argued before the king.
And the king said to them: "So you say," This is my son that liveth, and her dead, "- and she said," No, my son is alive and your dead. '" And the king said to the servants, "cutting of the living boy in two, and give half of it, and half of that. And dead, too, cut, give him half of this and half of that. "
And said the woman, whose son was alive, for in the confusion came from her soul of her son, and said, "May I be in trouble, my lord. Give her the boy did not kill him. " And the other woman said, "Let it be neither mine nor her! Cut it in half. " The king answered and said: "Give the living baby woman, and said:" Give it to her, not kill him. " Give it to her, because she - his mother. "
Israel heard about the court which tried the king, and they were filled with all those Tsar, for they knew that he was given a sense of God, to do judgment and justice.
FOR HELP THE PHARAOH
Solomon married the daughter of Pharaoh, when he was building the Holy of Holies. And he sent his ambassador to him, saying: "My father in law! Came to help me. " And the six hundred men chose to learn through astrology, that they will die in the year - I wanted to test the wisdom of Solomon. When they were brought to Solomon, he saw them from a distance and ordered all of them to make a shroud. He put his to him and sent his ambassador to Pharaoh, saying: "My father in law! If you have nothing to bury their dead, so here's a dress. Do yourself a bury them. "
LEGEND HOW WAS TAKEN Kitovras Solomon
When Solomon built the Holy of Holies, it took him a question Kitovras. One told him where he lives, he said - in a desert far. Then the wise Solomon planned to forge the iron chain and an iron hoop, and on it wrote spell the name of God, and sent the first of his boyars and the servants, and ordered to carry wine and honey, and took with sheepskins. Kitovras came to housing, to the three wells it, but it was not there. And as directed by Solomon poured into those pits wine and honey, and the top covered in sheepskin wells. In two wells poured wine, and a third med. Themselves, hiding, watching from a hiding place when it comes to drinking water wells. And soon he came, clung to the water and began to drink and said, "Everyone who drinks wine is not wise." But he got sick drinking the water, and he said, "You - the wine, laughing people heart" - and drank all three wells. And wanted to sleep a little bit, and sort out his wine, and he slept soundly. Boyar is going up, tightly bound him on the neck, hands and legs. And he woke up, he wanted to rush. And the lord said to him, "Mr. Solomon to spell the name of God written on the chains, which are now on you." He also saw them myself, meekly went to Jerusalem to the king.
Temper as it was like that. He did not go through the curves, but - only direct. And when they came to Jerusalem, to clear the path in front of him and pulled down the house, because he did not go around. And came to the house of a widow. And ran, the widow cried, begging Kitovras: "Sir, I am a widow poor. Do not hurt me! "He twisted around the corner, not sostupyas of the way, and broke his ribs. And he said: "A soft tongue breaks the bone." When led him through the auction, then, hearing the man said: "Is there no shoes for seven years?" - Kitovras laughed. And when he saw another man, vorozhaschego, laughed. And having seen a wedding consult, wept. But when he saw the way people wandering off the road, he sent it to the road. And they brought him to the Tsar's court.
The first day did not lead them to Solomon. And Kitovras said: "Why not call me to his king?" They said to him: "The census it yesterday." Kitovras he took a stone and put on another stone. Solomon told how he entered Kitovras. And the king said, "tells me to drink drink drink." And the next day did not call him to his king. And Kitovras asked, "Why not taking me to the king, and why I do not see his face?" And they said, "dog-sick king, because that ate a lot yesterday." Then took Kitovras stone from stone.
On the third day, said: "He is calling you to the king." He also measured the rod in four cubits, went to the king, and bowed in silence before the king threw a rod. Then the king in his wisdom explained his boyars, which means the rod, and told: "God has given you to possess the universe, and you're not satisfied, and I was caught." And Solomon said unto him, "Do not lead her on a whim I love you, but to ask how to build a Holy of Holies. Brought you to the Lord's command, because not allowing me to cut stone with iron. "
And Kitovras said: "There is a small bird named nail Shamir. Stores it in the nest of a field cock his rock on the mountain in the wilderness of the future. " Solomon sent a nobleman with his servants, at the direction of Kitovras, to nest. A boyar Kitovras gave clear glass and told him to hide the nest: "When will fly Kokot, cover glass that slot." Lord went to the nest, and in it - chicks small cocotte also flew over the stern. And he laid the glass mouth of the socket. Wait a bit, and Kokot arrived, he wanted to get into the nest. Chicks peep through the window, and he said to him not to go. Kept Shamir at a certain place, and brought to the nest, and put them on the glass, but it sit. Then the people shouted, and he was released. And he took, lord brought to Solomon.
Solomon then asked Kitovras: "Why do you laugh when people ask shoes for seven years?" - "I saw on him - said Kitovras - that will not live seven days." The king sent to check and found that. And Solomon said, "Why do you laugh when people used enchantments?" Kitovras answered: "He told people about the secret, and he did not know that under it - a cache of gold." And Solomon said, "Go and see." Tested, and proved to be so. And when the king asked, "Why are crying, seeing the wedding?" Kitovras said: "saddened because he will not live fiance and thirty days." Checked the king, and was so. And when the king asked, "Why a drunken man brought to the road?" Kitovras replied: "I heard from heaven that the man is virtuous and should serve him."
Kitovras Solomon had stayed until the end of the Holy of Holies.
Kitovras Solomon once said, "Now I see that your strength - as well as human, and no more of our power, but the same." Kitovras said to him: "King, if you want to see what my strength, take off my chain and give me his ring with his hands, then you will see my power." Solomon removed his iron chain, and gave him the ring. And he swallowed the ring, stretched out his arm, swung and hit Solomon, and threw it on the edge of the Promised Land. Found out about it, sages and scribes and spotted Solomon.
Always covered Solomon Kitovras fear of the night. The king built the bed and ordered sixty strong young men standing around with swords. Wherefore it is said in the Scriptures: "The bed of Solomon, sixty brave young men from Israel and from the north country."
About two-headed husband and his children
Kitovras same, going to the people, gave Solomon a man with two heads. Caught the man in Solomon. Solomon asked him: "Are you from the kind of people? You're a man or a demon? "The man replied," I - of people living under the ground. " And the king said to him: "Do you have the sun and the moon?" He said, "From your sun rises in the west of us, and comes to your east. So when you have a day, then we have the night. And when you have a night, then we have day. " And the king gave him a wife. And there were born two sons: one with two heads, and the other with one. And their father had a lot of good. And their father died. Headed said to his brother: "We divide the property on the head." A younger brother said, "are two of us. Divide the property in half. " They went to court to the king. Disbud said to the king: "We are two brothers. We need to divide the property in half. " And that, the two-headed, said the king, "I have two heads, and I want to take two beats." Then the king commanded in his wisdom apply vinegar and said, "Are these two heads of different bodies; polyu me just vinegar per head: if you do not feel the other head, two parts take two heads. And if you feel the other head pouring vinegar, then, both the head of one of the body. Then take a share. " When poured vinegar on one head, another squealed. And the king said, "If you have one body, take one share." So judge between them, King Solomon.
Yuzha was named queen inoplemennitsa Malkatoshka. She came to prove Solomon with hard questions. She was very wise. And they offered him gifts of gold twenty kapy, a lot of potions and wood negniyuschego. Solomon, having heard about the arrival of the Queen, sat in the hall with a floor made of clear glass on the platform, wanting to try it. She saw that the king is sitting in the water, picked up his clothes in front of him. And he saw that she had a beautiful face, her body is hairy, like a brush. These hair she bewitches men who used to come to her. Solomon said his wise men: "Prepare the room and ointment zeliem and strike her body to hair fell out." And the wise men, and scribes told him that he met with her. Conceived by him, she went to the land and gave birth to a son, and it was Nebuchadnezzar.
That's what it was a mystery to Solomon. She gathered the boys and girls dressed in the same clothes, and said to the king: "You will be examined by his wisdom, that boys and girls are." The king in his wisdom ordered to bear fruit, and emptied them in front of them. Boys started picking up in the floors of clothes, and the girls in the sleeves. And Solomon said, "This is the boys, and this - the girls." She marveled because of his cunning.
The next day she gathered the young men are circumcised and uncircumcised, and Solomon said: "We will understand that circumcised and uncircumcised men are." Then the king commanded the bishop to make the holy crown, on which was written the word of God, which Balaam was turned away from sorcery. Circumcised youths rose and fell before the uncircumcised crown. It is this very surprised.
Make come true sages her crafty Solomon: "We have a well away from the city. His wisdom guess what, you can drag it to the city? "Crafty as Solomon, realizing that this can not be said to them:" Weave bran rope, and we dragged a pit in your city. "
Once again, it will make come true the wise: "If cornfield porastet knives than able to shake it?" They said, 'Donkey's horn. " And the wise men said to her, "Where are the horns of a donkey?" They said, 'Where's cornfield bear knives? "
Make come true, and more: "If rots salt than you can salt it?" They said, "Maw mule took, it should be salt." And they said, "But where a mule giving birth?" They said, 'Where's the salt decay? "
The queen, seeing the mansion started, and a lot of food, and how are people to, and how are his servants, and their apparel, and drink, and the sacrifices they brought to the house of God, said, "Truly speech I heard in mine own land of thy wisdom. And I did not have faith speeches until I came and saw with my own eyes. It turns out that was not said to me and a half. Benefit to the men of thy hear thy wisdom. "
King Solomon gave the queen of Malkatoshka name and all she asked. And she went to her own land and his people.
The inheritance of three brothers
In the days of Solomon was a man who had three sons. Dying, the man called them to him and said to them: "I have a treasure in the earth. In the place, - he said, - three vessels are on each other. After the death of my eldest shall take the upper, middle - middle, and the smaller one - the bottom. " After his father's death his sons opened the treasure in the presence of people. And it was in the top container full of gold, full of bones in the middle, and the bottom is full of earth. These brothers began to quarrel, saying, "You - a son, just take the gold, and we - no sons?" And they went to court to Solomon. And they reasoned Solomon that there is gold - the older, cattle and servants - the average - according to the bones, and that the vineyards, cornfields and grain - the smallest. And he said to them, "Your father was an intelligent man and you are satisfied with life."
On three wayfarers
Three people were walking their way, carrying their belts gold. Pausing for a Saturday stay in the wilderness, they conferred and decided: "Hide the gold in the cave, if robbers attack, we'll run away, and it will be saved." Dig a hole, they put their belts in the cache. In the night, when the two friends were asleep, the third, feeding evil thought, stood up and perepryatat belt elsewhere. And when, after a rest, come to a hiding place to take your belt, do not find them, they cried out all at once, the villain as he yelled louder two others. And all returned home. And they said, "Come to Solomon and tell him about our problem." And they came to Solomon, saying, "I do not know, O king, it took an animal, bird, or whether an angel. Tell us, O king. " He's in his wisdom said to them: "I'll find you tomorrow. But once you have the travelers, I beg you, explain to me:
A young man engaged to a beautiful girl, gave her an engagement ring, without the knowledge of her father and mother. This young man went to another land, and there married. His father gave the girl is married. And when he wanted to copulate with her fiance, she cried and said: "Shame I did not tell his father that he was engaged to another. Fear God, come to my Fiance, ask his permission: I'll let you in the words of his wife. " Was about a young man, and took a lot of good and the girl went there. And that allowed him: "Let it be your wife, once you get it." The bridegroom and said to her, "go back and re-arrange the wedding." And when they went home back, they met a rapist and his men, and took him and the girl, and with the good. And wanted the robber to create violence on the girl, and she cried and told the robber that she went for a permit and was still with her husband in bed. Surprised robber and told her husband, "Take your wife and go with her good. '"
And Solomon said, "I have told you about these girls and boys. Tell me now, you people who have lost their belts: who is better - a boy or a girl, or a robber? "One said in response:" The girl is good because it talked about her betrothal. " Another said: "The boy is good, because wait until the resolution." The third said: "Rogue the best, because of the girl and returned released. A good not have to give. " Then Solomon said in response: "Friend, you are hungry for the property of others. You took all the belts. " He said: "Mr King-indeed it is. Utayus not from you. "
About the meaning of woman
And then the wise Solomon, wanting to experience the meaning of woman, called a nobleman, named Dekir, and said to him: "I really like you. And love you even more if you fulfill my desire: to kill his wife, and I'll give you a daughter of his best. " Said the same thing to him in a few days. He did not want to do it Dekir. And finally said, "I will do thy will, O king." Then the king gave him his sword, saying, "cut off the head of his wife, when she goes to sleep, not to dissuade her speeches, she will." And he went and found his wife asleep, and on either side of her two children. And he looked at his wife and their children sleeping, said in his heart: "If it hit my girlfriend sword, grieve my children." Then the king called him and asked him, saying, "Did the you my will concerning your wife?" He said, "I could not, my lord, do."
Then the king sent him as ambassador to another city, and he called his wife, told her, "I like you a lot more for all women. If you do that I shall command you, put you queen. Slay her husband sleeping on the bed, and this is for you - the sword. " In response, his wife said: "I am glad, O king, that you so will you have." Solomon, realizing his wisdom of her husband - that he does not want to kill his wife - gave him a sharp sword, and knowing his wife - that she wants to kill her husband gave her a blunt sword, pretending that he was sharp, saying "This sword slay her husband, sleeping in your bed." She put the sword to the chest of her husband, and began to drive them to his throat, thinking that he is sharp. And he jumped up, thinking that attacked some enemies, and when he saw that his wife was holding a sword, "Why, - said - a friend of mine, you think up to kill me?" In response to her husband's wife said: "The language of human convinced me to kill you. " He also wanted to call people and then realized that Solomon taught her.
Solomon, hearing of this, wrote this poem in the collection, saying, "Man found one among thousands, and women all over the world have not found."
The servant and the son
