2 Samuel 4

And when Saul's
<07586>
son
<01121>
heard
<08085> (8799)
that Abner
<074>
was dead
<04191> (8804)
in Hebron
<02275>_,
his hands
<03027>
were feeble
<07503> (8799)_,
and all the Israelites
<03478>
were troubled
<0926> (8738)_.
And Saul's
<07586>
son
<01121>
had
<01961> (8804)
two
<08147>
men
<0582>
[that were] captains
<08269>
of bands
<01416>_:
the name
<08034>
of the one
<0259>
[was] Baanah
<01196>_,
and the name
<08034>
of the other
<08145>
Rechab
<07394>_,
the sons
<01121>
of Rimmon
<07417>
a Beerothite
<0886>_,
of the children
<01121>
of Benjamin
<01144>_:
(for Beeroth
<0881>
also was reckoned
<02803> (8735)
to Benjamin
<01144>_:
{other: Heb. second}
And the Beerothites
<0886>
fled
<01272> (8799)
to Gittaim
<01664>_,
and were sojourners
<01481> (8802)
there until this day
<03117>.)
And Jonathan
<03083>_,
Saul's
<07586>
son
<01121>_,
had a son
<01121>
[that was] lame
<05223>
of [his] feet
<07272>_.
He was five
<02568>
years
<08141>
old
<01121>
when the tidings
<08052>
came
<0935> (8800)
of Saul
<07586>
and Jonathan
<03083>
out of Jezreel
<03157>_,
and his nurse
<0539> (8802)
took him up
<05375> (8799)_,
and fled
<05127> (8799)_:
and it came to pass, as she made haste
<02648> (8800)
to flee
<05127> (8800)_,
that he fell
<05307> (8799)_,
and became lame
<06452> (8735)_.
And his name
<08034>
[was] Mephibosheth
<04648>_.
{Mephibosheth: or, Meribbaal}
And the sons
<01121>
of Rimmon
<07417>
the Beerothite
<0886>_,
Rechab
<07394>
and Baanah
<01196>_,
went
<03212> (8799)_,
and came
<0935> (8799)
about the heat
<02527>
of the day
<03117>
to the house
<01004>
of Ishbosheth
<0378>_,
who lay
<07901> (8802)
on a bed
<04904>
at noon
<06672>_.
And they came thither
<0935> (8804)
into the midst
<08432>
of the house
<01004>_,
[as though] they would have fetched
<03947> (8802)
wheat
<02406>_;
and they smote
<05221> (8686)
him under the fifth
<02570>
[rib]: and Rechab
<07394>
and Baanah
<01196>
his brother
<0251>
escaped
<04422> (8738)_.
For when they came
<0935> (8799)
into the house
<01004>_,
he lay
<07901> (8802)
on his bed
<04296>
in his bedchamber
<02315> <04904>_,
and they smote
<05221> (8686)
him, and slew
<04191> (8686)
him, and beheaded
<05493> (8686)
him, and took
<03947> (8799)
his head
<07218>_,
and gat them away
<03212> (8799)
through
<01870>
the plain
<06160>
all night
<03915>_.
And they brought
<0935> (8686)
the head
<07218>
of Ishbosheth
<0378>
unto David
<01732>
to Hebron
<02275>_,
and said
<0559> (8799)
to the king
<04428>_,
Behold the head
<07218>
of Ishbosheth
<0378>
the son
<01121>
of Saul
<07586>
thine enemy
<0341> (8802)_,
which sought
<01245> (8765)
thy life
<05315>_;
and the LORD
<03068>
hath
<05414> (8799)
avenged
<05360>
my lord
<0113>
the king
<04428>
this day
<03117>
of Saul
<07586>_,
and of his seed
<02233>_.
And David
<01732>
answered
<06030> (8799)
Rechab
<07394>
and Baanah
<01196>
his brother
<0251>_,
the sons
<01121>
of Rimmon
<07417>
the Beerothite
<0886>_,
and said
<0559> (8799)
unto them, [As] the LORD
<03068>
liveth
<02416>_,
who hath redeemed
<06299> (8804)
my soul
<05315>
out of all adversity
<06869>_,
When one told
<05046> (8688)
me, saying
<0559> (8800)_,
Behold, Saul
<07586>
is dead
<04191> (8804)_,
thinking to have brought
<05869>
good tidings
<01319> (8764)_,
I took hold
<0270> (8799)
of him, and slew
<02026> (8799)
him in Ziklag
<06860>_,
who [thought] that I would have given
<05414> (8800)
him a reward for his tidings
<01309>_:
{thinking...: Heb. he was in his own eyes as a bringer, etc} {who...: or, which was the reward I gave him for his tidings}
How much more, when wicked
<07563>
men
<0582>
have slain
<02026> (8804)
a righteous
<06662>
person
<0376>
in his own house
<01004>
upon his bed
<04904>_?
shall I not therefore now require
<01245> (8762)
his blood
<01818>
of your hand
<03027>_,
and take you away
<01197> (8765)
from the earth
<0776>_?
And David
<01732>
commanded
<06680> (8762)
his young men
<05288>_,
and they slew
<02026> (8799)
them, and cut off
<07112> (8762)
their hands
<03027>
and their feet
<07272>_,
and hanged [them] up
<08518> (8799)
over the pool
<01295>
in Hebron
<02275>_.
But they took
<03947> (8804)
the head
<07218>
of Ishbosheth
<0378>_,
and buried
<06912> (8799)
[it] in the sepulchre
<06913>
of Abner
<074>
in Hebron
<02275>_.
