2 Samuel 20

And there happened
<07122> (8738)
to be there a man
<0376>
of Belial
<01100>_,
whose name
<08034>
[was] Sheba
<07652>_,
the son
<01121>
of Bichri
<01075>_,
a Benjamite
<01145>_:
and he blew
<08628> (8799)
a trumpet
<07782>_,
and said
<0559> (8799)_,
We have no part
<02506>
in David
<01732>_,
neither have we inheritance
<05159>
in the son
<01121>
of Jesse
<03448>_:
every
<0376>
man
<0376>
to his tents
<0168>_,
O Israel
<03478>_.
So every man
<0376>
of Israel
<03478>
went up
<05927> (8799)
from after
<0310>
David
<01732>_,
[and] followed
<0310>
Sheba
<07652>
the son
<01121>
of Bichri
<01075>_:
but the men
<0376>
of Judah
<03063>
clave
<01692> (8804)
unto their king
<04428>_,
from Jordan
<03383>
even to Jerusalem
<03389>_.
And David
<01732>
came
<0935> (8799)
to his house
<01004>
at Jerusalem
<03389>_;
and the king
<04428>
took
<03947> (8799)
the ten
<06235>
women
<0802>
[his] concubines
<06370>_,
whom he had left
<03240> (8689)
to keep
<08104> (8800)
the house
<01004>_,
and put
<05414> (8799)
them in ward
<04931>_,
and fed
<03557> (8770)
them, but went not in
<0935> (8804)
unto them. So they were shut up
<06887> (8803)
unto the day
<03117>
of their death
<04191> (8800)_,
living
<02424>
in widowhood
<0491>_.
{ward: Heb. an house of ward} {shut...: Heb. bound} {living...: Heb. in widowhood of life}
Then said
<0559> (8799)
the king
<04428>
to Amasa
<06021>_,
Assemble
<02199> (8685)
me the men
<0376>
of Judah
<03063>
within three
<07969>
days
<03117>_,
and be thou here present
<05975> (8798)_.
{Assemble: Heb. Call}
So Amasa
<06021>
went
<03212> (8799)
to assemble
<02199> (8687)
[the men of] Judah
<03063>_:
but he tarried longer
<0309> (8799) (8675) <03186> (8799)
than the set time
<04150>
which he had appointed
<03259> (8804)
him. {Assemble: Heb. Call}
And David
<01732>
said
<0559> (8799)
to Abishai
<052>_,
Now shall Sheba
<07652>
the son
<01121>
of Bichri
<01075>
do us more harm
<03415> (8799)
than [did] Absalom
<053>_:
take
<03947> (8798)
thou thy lord's
<0113>
servants
<05650>_,
and pursue
<07291> (8798)
after
<0310>
him, lest he get
<04672> (8804)
him fenced
<01219> (8803)
cities
<05892>_,
and escape
<05337> (8689)
us
<05869>_.
{escape...: Heb. deliver himself from our eyes}
And there went out
<03318> (8799)
after
<0310>
him Joab's
<03097>
men
<0582>_,
and the Cherethites
<03774>_,
and the Pelethites
<06432>_,
and all the mighty men
<01368>_:
and they went out
<03318> (8799)
of Jerusalem
<03389>_,
to pursue
<07291> (8800)
after
<0310>
Sheba
<07652>
the son
<01121>
of Bichri
<01075>_.
When they [were] at the great
<01419>
stone
<068>
which [is] in Gibeon
<01391>_,
Amasa
<06021>
went
<0935> (8804)
before
<06440>
them. And Joab's
<03097>
garment
<04055>
that he had put on
<03830>
was girded
<02296> (8803)
unto him, and upon it a girdle
<02289>
[with] a sword
<02719>
fastened
<06775> (8794)
upon his loins
<04975>
in the sheath
<08593>
thereof; and as he went forth
<03318> (8804)
it fell out
<05307> (8799)_.
And Joab
<03097>
said
<0559> (8799)
to Amasa
<06021>_,
[Art] thou in health
<07965>_,
my brother
<0251>_?
And Joab
<03097>
took
<0270> (8799)
Amasa
<06021>
by the beard
<02206>
with the right
<03225>
hand
<03027>
to kiss
<05401> (8800)
him.
But Amasa
<06021>
took no heed
<08104> (8738)
to the sword
<02719>
that [was] in Joab's
<03097>
hand
<03027>_:
so he smote
<05221> (8686)
him therewith in the fifth
<02570>
[rib], and shed out
<08210> (8799)
his bowels
<04578>
to the ground
<0776>_,
and struck him not again
<08138> (8804)_;
and he died
<04191> (8799)_.
So Joab
<03097>
and Abishai
<052>
his brother
<0251>
pursued
<07291> (8804)
after
<0310>
Sheba
<07652>
the son
<01121>
of Bichri
<01075>_.
{struck...: Heb. doubled not his stroke}
And one
<0376>
of Joab's
<03097>
men
<05288>
stood
<05975> (8804)
by him, and said
<0559> (8799)_,
He
<04310>
that favoureth
<02654> (8804)
Joab
<03097>_,
and he that [is] for David
<01732>_,
[let him go] after
<0310>
Joab
<03097>_.
And Amasa
<06021>
wallowed
<01556> (8706)
in blood
<01818>
in the midst
<08432>
of the highway
<04546>_.
And when the man
<0376>
saw
<07200> (8799)
that all the people
<05971>
stood still
<05975> (8804)_,
he removed
<05437> (8686)
Amasa
<06021>
out of the highway
<04546>
into the field
<07704>_,
and cast
<07993> (8686)
a cloth
<0899>
upon him, when he saw
<07200> (8804)
that every one that came
<0935> (8802)
by him stood still
<05975> (8804)_.
When he was removed
<03014> (8689)
out of the highway
<04546>_,
all the people
<0376>
went on
<05674> (8804)
after
<0310>
Joab
<03097>_,
to pursue
<07291> (8800)
after
<0310>
Sheba
<07652>
the son
<01121>
of Bichri
<01075>_.
And he went
<05674> (8799)
through all the tribes
<07626>
of Israel
<03478>
unto Abel
<059>_,
and to Bethmaachah
<01038>_,
and all the Berites
<01276>_:
and they were gathered together
<06950> (8735) (8675) <07035> (8735)_,
and went
<0935> (8799)
also after
<0310>
him.
And they came
<0935> (8799)
and besieged
<06696> (8799)
him in Abel
<059>
of Bethmaachah
<01038>_,
and they cast up
<08210> (8799)
a bank
<05550>
against the city
<05892>_,
and it stood
<05975> (8799)
in the trench
<02426>_:
and all the people
<05971>
that [were] with Joab
<03097>
battered
<07843> (8688)
the wall
<02346>_,
to throw it down
<05307> (8687)_.
{in the trench: or, against the outmost wall} {battered: Heb. marred to throw down}
Then cried
<07121> (8799)
a wise
<02450>
woman
<0802>
out of the city
<05892>_,
Hear
<08085> (8798)_,
hear
<08085> (8798)_;
say
<0559> (8798)_,
I pray you, unto Joab
<03097>_,
Come near
<07126> (8798)
hither, that I may speak
<01696> (8762)
with thee.
And when he was come near
<07126> (8799)
unto her, the woman
<0802>
said
<0559> (8799)_,
[Art] thou Joab
<03097>_?
And he answered
<0559> (8799)_,
I [am he]. Then she said
<0559> (8799)
unto him, Hear
<08085> (8798)
the words
<01697>
of thine handmaid
<0519>_.
And he answered
<0559> (8799)_,
I do hear
<08085> (8802)_.
Then she spake
<0559> (8799)_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
They were wont
<01696> (8763)
to speak
<01696> (8762)
in old time
<07223>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
They shall surely
<07592> (8800)
ask
<07592> (8762)
[counsel] at Abel
<059>_:
and so they ended
<08552> (8689)
[the matter]. {They were...: or, They plainly spoke in the beginning, saying, Surely they will ask of Abel, and so make and end}
I [am one of them that are] peaceable
<07999> (8803)
[and] faithful
<0539> (8803)
in Israel
<03478>_:
thou seekest
<01245> (8764)
to destroy
<04191> (8687)
a city
<05892>
and a mother
<0517>
in Israel
<03478>_:
why wilt thou swallow up
<01104> (8762)
the inheritance
<05159>
of the LORD
<03068>_?
And Joab
<03097>
answered
<06030> (8799)
and said
<0559> (8799)_,
Far be it
<02486>_,
far be it
<02486>
from me, that I should swallow up
<01104> (8762)
or destroy
<07843> (8686)_.
The matter
<01697>
[is] not so: but a man
<0376>
of mount
<02022>
Ephraim
<0669>_,
Sheba
<07652>
the son
<01121>
of Bichri
<01075>
by name
<08034>_,
hath lifted up
<05375> (8804)
his hand
<03027>
against the king
<04428>_,
[even] against David
<01732>_:
deliver
<05414> (8798)
him only, and I will depart
<03212> (8799)
from the city
<05892>_.
And the woman
<0802>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto Joab
<03097>_,
Behold, his head
<07218>
shall be thrown
<07993> (8716)
to thee over
<01157>
the wall
<02346>_.
{by name: Heb. by his name}
Then the woman
<0802>
went
<0935> (8799)
unto all the people
<05971>
in her wisdom
<02451>_.
And they cut off
<03772> (8799)
the head
<07218>
of Sheba
<07652>
the son
<01121>
of Bichri
<01075>_,
and cast
<07993> (8686)
[it] out to Joab
<03097>_.
And he blew
<08628> (8799)
a trumpet
<07782>_,
and they retired
<06327> (8799)
from the city
<05892>_,
every man
<0376>
to his tent
<0168>_.
And Joab
<03097>
returned
<07725> (8804)
to Jerusalem
<03389>
unto the king
<04428>_.
{retired: Heb. were scattered}
Now Joab
<03097>
[was] over all the host
<06635>
of Israel
<03478>_:
and Benaiah
<01141>
the son
<01121>
of Jehoiada
<03077>
[was] over the Cherethites
<03774> (8675) <03746>
and over the Pelethites
<06432>_:
And Adoram
<0151>
[was] over the tribute
<04522>_:
and Jehoshaphat
<03092>
the son
<01121>
of Ahilud
<0286>
[was] recorder
<02142> (8688)_:
{recorder: or, remembrancer}
And Sheva
<07864> (8675) <07724>
[was] scribe
<05608> (8802)_:
and Zadok
<06659>
and Abiathar
<054>
[were] the priests
<03548>_:
And Ira
<05896>
also the Jairite
<02972>
was a chief ruler
<03548>
about David
<01732>_.
{a chief...: or, a prince}
