2 Samuel 16

And when David
<01732>
was a little
<04592>
past
<05674> (8804)
the top
<07218>
[of the hill], behold, Ziba
<06717>
the servant
<05288>
of Mephibosheth
<04648>
met
<07125> (8800)
him, with a couple
<06776>
of asses
<02543>
saddled
<02280> (8803)_,
and upon them two hundred
<03967>
[loaves] of bread
<03899>_,
and an hundred
<03967>
bunches of raisins
<06778>_,
and an hundred
<03967>
of summer fruits
<07019>_,
and a bottle
<05035>
of wine
<03196>_.
And the king
<04428>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto Ziba
<06717>_,
What meanest thou by these? And Ziba
<06717>
said
<0559> (8799)_,
The asses
<02543>
[be] for the king's
<04428>
household
<01004>
to ride on
<07392> (8800)_;
and the bread
<03899>
and summer fruit
<07019>
for the young men
<05288>
to eat
<0398> (8800)_;
and the wine
<03196>_,
that such as be faint
<03287>
in the wilderness
<04057>
may drink
<08354> (8800)_.
And the king
<04428>
said
<0559> (8799)_,
And where [is] thy master's
<0113>
son
<01121>_?
And Ziba
<06717>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto the king
<04428>_,
Behold, he abideth
<03427> (8802)
at Jerusalem
<03389>_:
for he said
<0559> (8804)_,
To day
<03117>
shall the house
<01004>
of Israel
<03478>
restore
<07725> (8686)
me the kingdom
<04468>
of my father
<01>_.
Then said
<0559> (8799)
the king
<04428>
to Ziba
<06717>_,
Behold, thine [are] all that [pertained] unto Mephibosheth
<04648>_.
And Ziba
<06717>
said
<0559> (8799)_,
I humbly
<07812> (8694)
beseech thee [that] I may find
<04672> (8799)
grace
<02580>
in thy sight
<05869>_,
my lord
<0113>_,
O king
<04428>_.
{I humbly...: Heb. I do obeisance}
And when king
<04428>
David
<01732>
came
<0935> (8804)
to Bahurim
<0980>_,
behold, thence came out
<03318> (8802)
a man
<0376>
of the family
<04940>
of the house
<01004>
of Saul
<07586>_,
whose name
<08034>
[was] Shimei
<08096>_,
the son
<01121>
of Gera
<01617>_:
he came forth
<03318> (8802)_,
and cursed
<07043> (8764)
still as he came
<03318> (8800)_.
{he came forth...: or, he still came forth and cursed}
And he cast
<05619> (8762)
stones
<068>
at David
<01732>_,
and at all the servants
<05650>
of king
<04428>
David
<01732>_:
and all the people
<05971>
and all the mighty men
<01368>
[were] on his right hand
<03225>
and on his left
<08040>_.
And thus said
<0559> (8804)
Shimei
<08096>
when he cursed
<07043> (8763)_,
Come out
<03318> (8798)_,
come out
<03318> (8798)_,
thou bloody
<01818>
man
<0376>_,
and thou man
<0376>
of Belial
<01100>_:
{bloody...: Heb. man of blood}
The LORD
<03068>
hath returned
<07725> (8689)
upon thee all the blood
<01818>
of the house
<01004>
of Saul
<07586>_,
in whose stead thou hast reigned
<04427> (8804)_;
and the LORD
<03068>
hath delivered
<05414> (8799)
the kingdom
<04410>
into the hand
<03027>
of Absalom
<053>
thy son
<01121>_:
and, behold, thou [art taken] in thy mischief
<07451>_,
because thou [art] a bloody
<01818>
man
<0376>_.
{behold...: Heb. behold thee in thy evil}
Then said
<0559> (8799)
Abishai
<052>
the son
<01121>
of Zeruiah
<06870>
unto the king
<04428>_,
Why should this dead
<04191> (8801)
dog
<03611>
curse
<07043> (8762)
my lord
<0113>
the king
<04428>_?
let me go over
<05674> (8799)_,
I pray thee, and take off
<05493> (8686)
his head
<07218>_.
And the king
<04428>
said
<0559> (8799)_,
What have I to do with you, ye sons
<01121>
of Zeruiah
<06870>_?
so let him curse
<07043> (8762)_,
because the LORD
<03068>
hath said
<0559> (8804)
unto him, Curse
<07043> (8761)
David
<01732>_.
Who shall then say
<0559> (8799)_,
Wherefore hast thou done so
<06213> (8804)_?
And David
<01732>
said
<0559> (8799)
to Abishai
<052>_,
and to all his servants
<05650>_,
Behold, my son
<01121>_,
which came forth
<03318> (8804)
of my bowels
<04578>_,
seeketh
<01245> (8764)
my life
<05315>_:
how much more now [may this] Benjamite
<01145>
[do it]? let him alone
<03240> (8685)_,
and let him curse
<07043> (8762)_;
for the LORD
<03068>
hath bidden
<0559> (8804)
him.
It may be that the LORD
<03068>
will look
<07200> (8799)
on mine affliction
<05869> (8675) <06040>_,
and that the LORD
<03068>
will requite
<07725> (8689)
me good
<02896>
for his cursing
<07045>
this day
<03117>_.
{affliction: or, tears: Heb. eye}
And as David
<01732>
and his men
<0582>
went
<03212> (8799)
by the way
<01870>_,
Shimei
<08096>
went along
<01980> (8802)
on the hill's
<02022>
side
<06763>
over against
<05980>
him, and cursed
<07043> (8762)
as he went
<01980> (8800)_,
and threw
<05619> (8762)
stones
<068>
at
<05980>
him, and cast
<06080> (8765)
dust
<06083>_.
{cast...: Heb. dusted him with dust}
And the king
<04428>_,
and all the people
<05971>
that [were] with him, came
<0935> (8799)
weary
<05889>_,
and refreshed
<05314> (8735)
themselves there.
And Absalom
<053>_,
and all the people
<05971>
the men
<0376>
of Israel
<03478>_,
came
<0935> (8804)
to Jerusalem
<03389>_,
and Ahithophel
<0302>
with him.
And it came to pass, when Hushai
<02365>
the Archite
<0757>_,
David's
<01732>
friend
<07463>_,
was come
<0935> (8804)
unto Absalom
<053>_,
that Hushai
<02365>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto Absalom
<053>_,
God save
<02421> (8799)
the king
<04428>_,
God save
<02421> (8799)
the king
<04428>_.
{God...: Heb. Let the king live}
And Absalom
<053>
said
<0559> (8799)
to Hushai
<02365>_,
[Is] this thy kindness
<02617>
to thy friend
<07453>_?
why wentest
<01980> (8804)
thou not with thy friend
<07453>_?
And Hushai
<02365>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto Absalom
<053>_,
Nay; but whom the LORD
<03068>_,
and this people
<05971>_,
and all the men
<0376>
of Israel
<03478>_,
choose
<0977> (8804)_,
his will I be, and with him will I abide
<03427> (8799)_.
And again
<08145>_,
whom should I serve
<05647> (8799)_?
[should I] not [serve] in the presence
<06440>
of his son
<01121>_?
as I have served
<05647> (8804)
in thy father's
<01>
presence
<06440>_,
so will I be in thy presence
<06440>_.
Then said
<0559> (8799)
Absalom
<053>
to Ahithophel
<0302>_,
Give
<03051> (8798)
counsel
<06098>
among you what we shall do
<06213> (8799)_.
And Ahithophel
<0302>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto Absalom
<053>_,
Go in
<0935> (8798)
unto thy father's
<01>
concubines
<06370>_,
which he hath left
<03240> (8689)
to keep
<08104> (8800)
the house
<01004>_;
and all Israel
<03478>
shall hear
<08085> (8804)
that thou art abhorred
<0887> (8738)
of thy father
<01>_:
then shall the hands
<03027>
of all that [are] with thee be strong
<02388> (8804)_.
So they spread
<05186> (8686)
Absalom
<053>
a tent
<0168>
upon the top of the house
<01406>_;
and Absalom
<053>
went in
<0935> (8799)
unto his father's
<01>
concubines
<06370>
in the sight
<05869>
of all Israel
<03478>_.
And the counsel
<06098>
of Ahithophel
<0302>_,
which he counselled
<03289> (8804)
in those days
<03117>_,
[was] as if a man
<0376>
had enquired
<07592> (8799)
at the oracle
<01697>
of God
<0430>_:
so [was] all the counsel
<06098>
of Ahithophel
<0302>
both with David
<01732>
and with Absalom
<053>_.
{oracle: Heb. word}
