2 Samuel 16:15-23

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}
