2 Samuel 14

Now Joab
<03097>
the son
<01121>
of Zeruiah
<06870>
perceived
<03045> (8799)
that the king's
<04428>
heart
<03820>
[was] toward Absalom
<053>_.
And Joab
<03097>
sent
<07971> (8799)
to Tekoah
<08620>_,
and fetched
<03947> (8799)
thence a wise
<02450>
woman
<0802>_,
and said
<0559> (8799)
unto her, I pray thee, feign thyself to be a mourner
<056> (8693)_,
and put on
<03847> (8798)
now mourning
<060>
apparel
<0899>_,
and anoint
<05480> (8799)
not thyself with oil
<08081>_,
but be as a woman
<0802>
that had a long
<07227>
time
<03117>
mourned
<056> (8690)
for the dead
<04191> (8801)_:
And come
<0935> (8804)
to the king
<04428>_,
and speak
<01696> (8765)
on this manner
<01697>
unto him. So Joab
<03097>
put
<07760> (8799)
the words
<01697>
in her mouth
<06310>_.
And when the woman
<0802>
of Tekoah
<08621>
spake
<0559> (8799)
to the king
<04428>_,
she fell
<05307> (8799)
on her face
<0639>
to the ground
<0776>_,
and did obeisance
<07812> (8691)_,
and said
<0559> (8799)_,
Help
<03467> (8685)_,
O king
<04428>_.
{Help: Heb. Save}
And the king
<04428>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto her, What aileth thee? And she answered
<0559> (8799)_,
I [am] indeed
<061>
a widow
<0490>
woman
<0802>_,
and mine husband
<0376>
is dead
<04191> (8799)_.
And thy handmaid
<08198>
had two
<08147>
sons
<01121>_,
and they two
<08147>
strove together
<05327> (8735)
in the field
<07704>_,
and [there was] none to part
<05337> (8688)
them, but the one
<0259>
smote
<05221> (8686)
the other
<0259>_,
and slew
<04191> (8686)
him. {none...: Heb. no deliverer between them}
And, behold, the whole family
<04940>
is risen
<06965> (8804)
against thine handmaid
<08198>_,
and they said
<0559> (8799)_,
Deliver
<05414> (8798)
him that smote
<05221> (8688)
his brother
<0251>_,
that we may kill
<04191> (8686)
him, for the life
<05315>
of his brother
<0251>
whom he slew
<02026> (8804)_;
and we will destroy
<08045> (8686)
the heir
<03423> (8802)
also: and so they shall quench
<03518> (8765)
my coal
<01513>
which is left
<07760> (8800)_,
and shall not leave
<07604> (8738)
to my husband
<0376>
[neither] name
<08034>
nor remainder
<07611>
upon
<06440>
the earth
<0127>_.
{upon...: Heb. upon the face of the earth}
And the king
<04428>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto the woman
<0802>_,
Go
<03212> (8798)
to thine house
<01004>_,
and I will give charge
<06680> (8762)
concerning thee.
And the woman
<0802>
of Tekoah
<08621>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto the king
<04428>_,
My lord
<0113>_,
O king
<04428>_,
the iniquity
<05771>
[be] on me, and on my father's
<01>
house
<01004>_:
and the king
<04428>
and his throne
<03678>
[be] guiltless
<05355>_.
And the king
<04428>
said
<0559> (8799)_,
Whosoever saith
<01696> (8764)
[ought] unto thee, bring
<0935> (8689)
him to me, and he shall not touch
<05060> (8800)
thee any more
<03254> (8686)_.
Then said
<0559> (8799)
she, I pray thee, let the king
<04428>
remember
<02142> (8799)
the LORD
<03068>
thy God
<0430>_,
that thou wouldest not suffer the revengers
<01350> (8802)
of blood
<01818>
to destroy
<07843> (8763)
any more
<07235> (8687)_,
lest they destroy
<08045> (8686)
my son
<01121>_.
And he said
<0559> (8799)_,
[As] the LORD
<03068>
liveth
<02416>_,
there shall not one hair
<08185>
of thy son
<01121>
fall
<05307> (8799)
to the earth
<0776>_.
{that...: Heb. that the revenger of blood do not multiply to destroy}
Then the woman
<0802>
said
<0559> (8799)_,
Let thine handmaid
<08198>_,
I pray thee, speak
<01696> (8762)
[one] word
<01697>
unto my lord
<0113>
the king
<04428>_.
And he said
<0559> (8799)_,
Say on
<01696> (8761)_.
And the woman
<0802>
said
<0559> (8799)_,
Wherefore then hast thou thought
<02803> (8804)
such a thing against the people
<05971>
of God
<0430>_?
for the king
<04428>
doth speak
<01696> (8693)
this thing
<01697>
as one which is faulty
<0818>_,
in that the king
<04428>
doth not fetch home again
<07725> (8687)
his banished
<05080> (8737)_.
For we must needs
<04191> (8800)
die
<04191> (8799)_,
and [are] as water
<04325>
spilt
<05064> (8737)
on the ground
<0776>_,
which cannot be gathered up again
<0622> (8735)_;
neither doth God
<0430>
respect
<05375> (8799)
[any] person
<05315>_:
yet doth he devise
<02803> (8804)
means
<04284>_,
that his banished
<05080> (8737)
be not expelled
<05080> (8799)
from him. {neither...: or, because God hath not taken away his life, he hath also devised means, etc}
Now therefore that I am come
<0935> (8804)
to speak
<01696> (8763)
of this thing
<01697>
unto my lord
<0113>
the king
<04428>_,
[it is] because the people
<05971>
have made me afraid
<03372> (8765)_:
and thy handmaid
<08198>
said
<0559> (8799)_,
I will now speak
<01696> (8762)
unto the king
<04428>_;
it may be that the king
<04428>
will perform
<06213> (8799)
the request
<01697>
of his handmaid
<0519>_.
For the king
<04428>
will hear
<08085> (8799)_,
to deliver
<05337> (8687)
his handmaid
<0519>
out of the hand
<03709>
of the man
<0376>
[that would] destroy
<08045> (8687)
me and my son
<01121>
together
<03162>
out of the inheritance
<05159>
of God
<0430>_.
Then thine handmaid
<08198>
said
<0559> (8799)_,
The word
<01697>
of my lord
<0113>
the king
<04428>
shall now be comfortable
<04496>_:
for as an angel
<04397>
of God
<0430>_,
so [is] my lord
<0113>
the king
<04428>
to discern
<08085> (8800)
good
<02896>
and bad
<07451>_:
therefore the LORD
<03068>
thy God
<0430>
will be with thee. {comfortable: Heb. for rest} {to discern: Heb. to hear}
Then the king
<04428>
answered
<06030> (8799)
and said
<0559> (8799)
unto the woman
<0802>_,
Hide
<03582> (8762)
not from me, I pray thee, the thing
<01697>
that I shall ask
<07592> (8802)
thee. And the woman
<0802>
said
<0559> (8799)_,
Let my lord
<0113>
the king
<04428>
now speak
<01696> (8762)_.
And the king
<04428>
said
<0559> (8799)_,
[Is not] the hand
<03027>
of Joab
<03097>
with thee in all this? And the woman
<0802>
answered
<06030> (8799)
and said
<0559> (8799)_,
[As] thy soul
<05315>
liveth
<02416>_,
my lord
<0113>
the king
<04428>_,
none
<0376>
can
<0786>
turn to the right hand
<03231> (8687)
or to the left
<08041> (8687)
from ought that my lord
<0113>
the king
<04428>
hath spoken
<01696> (8765)_:
for thy servant
<05650>
Joab
<03097>_,
he bade
<06680> (8765)
me, and he put
<07760> (8804)
all these words
<01697>
in the mouth
<06310>
of thine handmaid
<08198>_:
To
<05668>
fetch about
<05437> (8763)
this form
<06440>
of speech
<01697>
hath thy servant
<05650>
Joab
<03097>
done
<06213> (8804)
this thing
<01697>_:
and my lord
<0113>
[is] wise
<02450>_,
according to the wisdom
<02451>
of an angel
<04397>
of God
<0430>_,
to know
<03045> (8800)
all [things] that [are] in the earth
<0776>_.
And the king
<04428>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto Joab
<03097>_,
Behold now, I have done
<06213> (8804)
this thing
<01697>_:
go
<03212> (8798)
therefore, bring
<07725> (0)
the young man
<05288>
Absalom
<053>
again
<07725> (8685)_.
And Joab
<03097>
fell
<05307> (8799)
to the ground
<0776>
on his face
<06440>_,
and bowed
<07812> (8691)
himself, and thanked
<01288> (8762)
the king
<04428>_:
and Joab
<03097>
said
<0559> (8799)_,
To day
<03117>
thy servant
<05650>
knoweth
<03045> (8804)
that I have found
<04672> (8804)
grace
<02580>
in thy sight
<05869>_,
my lord
<0113>_,
O king
<04428>_,
in that the king
<04428>
hath fulfilled
<06213> (8804)
the request
<01697>
of his servant
<05650>_.
{thanked: Heb. blessed} {his servant: or, thy servant}
So Joab
<03097>
arose
<06965> (8799)
and went
<03212> (8799)
to Geshur
<01650>_,
and brought
<0935> (8686)
Absalom
<053>
to Jerusalem
<03389>_.
And the king
<04428>
said
<0559> (8799)_,
Let him turn
<05437> (8735)
to his own house
<01004>_,
and let him not see
<07200> (8799)
my face
<06440>_.
So Absalom
<053>
returned
<05437> (8735)
to his own house
<01004>_,
and saw
<07200> (8804)
not the king's
<04428>
face
<06440>_.
But in all Israel
<03478>
there was none
<0376>
to be so much
<03966>
praised
<01984> (8763)
as Absalom
<053>
for his beauty
<03303>_:
from the sole
<03709>
of his foot
<07272>
even to the crown of his head
<06936>
there was no blemish
<03971>
in him. {But...: Heb. And as Absalom there was not a beautiful man in all Israel to praise greatly}
And when he polled
<01548> (8763)
his head
<07218>_,
(for it was at every year's
<03117> <03117>
end
<07093>
that he polled
<01548> (8762)
[it]: because [the hair] was heavy
<03513> (8804)
on him, therefore he polled
<01548> (8765)
it:) he weighed
<08254> (8804)
the hair
<08181>
of his head
<07218>
at two hundred
<03967>
shekels
<08255>
after the king's
<04428>
weight
<068>_.
And unto Absalom
<053>
there were born
<03205> (8735)
three
<07969>
sons
<01121>_,
and one
<0259>
daughter
<01323>_,
whose name
<08034>
[was] Tamar
<08559>_:
she was a woman
<0802>
of a fair
<03303>
countenance
<04758>_.
So Absalom
<053>
dwelt
<03427> (8799)
two full
<03117>
years
<08141>
in Jerusalem
<03389>_,
and saw
<07200> (8804)
not the king's
<04428>
face
<06440>_.
Therefore Absalom
<053>
sent
<07971> (8799)
for Joab
<03097>_,
to have sent
<07971> (8800)
him to the king
<04428>_;
but he would
<014> (8804)
not come
<0935> (8800)
to him: and when he sent again
<07971> (8799)
the second time
<08145>_,
he would
<014> (8804)
not come
<0935> (8800)_.
Therefore he said
<0559> (8799)
unto his servants
<05650>_,
See
<07200> (8798)_,
Joab's
<03097>
field
<02513>
is near
<0413>
mine
<03027>_,
and he hath barley
<08184>
there; go
<03212> (8798)
and set
<03341> (8685)
it on fire
<0784>_.
And Absalom's
<053>
servants
<05650>
set
<03341> (8686)
the field
<02513>
on fire
<0784>_.
{near...: Heb. near my place}
Then Joab
<03097>
arose
<06965> (8799)_,
and came
<0935> (8799)
to Absalom
<053>
unto [his] house
<01004>_,
and said
<0559> (8799)
unto him, Wherefore have thy servants
<05650>
set
<03341> (8689)
my field
<02513>
on fire
<0784>_?
And Absalom
<053>
answered
<0559> (8799)
Joab
<03097>_,
Behold, I sent
<07971> (8804)
unto thee, saying
<0559> (8800)_,
Come
<0935> (8798)
hither, that I may send
<07971> (8799)
thee to the king
<04428>_,
to say
<0559> (8800)_,
Wherefore am I come
<0935> (8804)
from Geshur
<01650>_?
[it had been] good
<02896>
for me [to have been] there still: now therefore let me see
<07200> (8799)
the king's
<04428>
face
<06440>_;
and if there be
<03426>
[any] iniquity
<05771>
in me, let him kill
<04191> (8689)
me.
So Joab
<03097>
came
<0935> (8799)
to the king
<04428>_,
and told
<05046> (8686)
him: and when he had called
<07121> (8799)
for Absalom
<053>_,
he came
<0935> (8799)
to the king
<04428>_,
and bowed
<07812> (8691)
himself on his face
<0639>
to the ground
<0776>
before
<06440>
the king
<04428>_:
and the king
<04428>
kissed
<05401> (8799)
Absalom
<053>_.
