2 Samuel 19:8-43

Then the king
<04428>
arose
<06965> (8799)_,
and sat
<03427> (8799)
in the gate
<08179>_.
And they told
<05046> (8689)
unto all the people
<05971>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
Behold, the king
<04428>
doth sit
<03427> (8802)
in the gate
<08179>_.
And all the people
<05971>
came
<0935> (8799)
before
<06440>
the king
<04428>_:
for Israel
<03478>
had fled
<05127> (8804)
every man
<0376>
to his tent
<0168>_.
And all the people
<05971>
were at strife
<01777> (8737)
throughout all the tribes
<07626>
of Israel
<03478>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
The king
<04428>
saved
<05337> (8689)
us out of the hand
<03709>
of our enemies
<0341> (8802)_,
and he delivered
<04422> (8765)
us out of the hand
<03709>
of the Philistines
<06430>_;
and now he is fled
<01272> (8804)
out of the land
<0776>
for Absalom
<053>_.
And Absalom
<053>_,
whom we anointed
<04886> (8804)
over us, is dead
<04191> (8804)
in battle
<04421>_.
Now therefore why speak
<02790> (8688)
ye not a word of bringing
<07725> (0)
the king
<04428>
back
<07725> (8687)_?
{speak...: Heb. are ye silent?}
And king
<04428>
David
<01732>
sent
<07971> (8804)
to Zadok
<06659>
and to Abiathar
<054>
the priests
<03548>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
Speak
<01696> (8761)
unto the elders
<02205>
of Judah
<03063>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
Why are ye the last
<0314>
to bring
<07725> (0)
the king
<04428>
back
<07725> (8687)
to his house
<01004>_?
seeing the speech
<01697>
of all Israel
<03478>
is come
<0935> (8804)
to the king
<04428>_,
[even] to his house
<01004>_.
Ye [are] my brethren
<0251>_,
ye [are] my bones
<06106>
and my flesh
<01320>_:
wherefore then are ye the last
<0314>
to bring back
<07725> (8687)
the king
<04428>_?
And say
<0559> (8799)
ye to Amasa
<06021>_,
[Art] thou not of my bone
<06106>_,
and of my flesh
<01320>_?
God
<0430>
do
<06213> (8799)
so to me, and more
<03254> (8686)
also, if thou be not captain
<08269>
of the host
<06635>
before
<06440>
me continually
<03117>
in the room
<08478>
of Joab
<03097>_.
And he bowed
<05186> (8686)
the heart
<03824>
of all the men
<0376>
of Judah
<03063>_,
even as [the heart of] one
<0259>
man
<0376>_;
so that they sent
<07971> (8799)
[this word] unto the king
<04428>_,
Return
<07725> (8798)
thou, and all thy servants
<05650>_.
So the king
<04428>
returned
<07725> (8799)_,
and came
<0935> (8799)
to Jordan
<03383>_.
And Judah
<03063>
came
<0935> (8804)
to Gilgal
<01537>_,
to go
<03212> (8800)
to meet
<07125> (8800)
the king
<04428>_,
to conduct
<05674> (0)
the king
<04428>
over
<05674> (8687)
Jordan
<03383>_.
And Shimei
<08096>
the son
<01121>
of Gera
<01617>_,
a Benjamite
<01145>_,
which [was] of Bahurim
<0980>_,
hasted
<04116> (8762)
and came down
<03381> (8799)
with the men
<0376>
of Judah
<03063>
to meet
<07125> (8800)
king
<04428>
David
<01732>_.
And [there were] a thousand
<0505>
men
<0376>
of Benjamin
<01145>
with him, and Ziba
<06717>
the servant
<05288>
of the house
<01004>
of Saul
<07586>_,
and his fifteen
<02568> <06240>
sons
<01121>
and his twenty
<06242>
servants
<05650>
with him; and they went over
<06743> (8804)
Jordan
<03383>
before
<06440>
the king
<04428>_.
And there went over
<05674> (8804)
a ferry boat
<05679>
to carry over
<05674> (8687)
the king's
<04428>
household
<01004>_,
and to do
<06213> (8800)
what he thought
<05869>
good
<02896>_.
And Shimei
<08096>
the son
<01121>
of Gera
<01617>
fell down
<05307> (8804)
before
<06440>
the king
<04428>_,
as he was come over
<05674> (8800)
Jordan
<03383>_;
{what...: Heb. the good in his eyes}
And said
<0559> (8799)
unto the king
<04428>_,
Let not my lord
<0113>
impute
<02803> (8799)
iniquity
<05771>
unto me, neither do thou remember
<02142> (8799)
that which thy servant
<05650>
did perversely
<05753> (8689)
the day
<03117>
that my lord
<0113>
the king
<04428>
went out
<03318> (8804)
of Jerusalem
<03389>_,
that the king
<04428>
should take
<07760> (8800)
it to his heart
<03820>_.
For thy servant
<05650>
doth know
<03045> (8804)
that I have sinned
<02398> (8804)_:
therefore, behold, I am come
<0935> (8804)
the first
<07223>
this day
<03117>
of all the house
<01004>
of Joseph
<03130>
to go down
<03381> (8800)
to meet
<07125> (8800)
my lord
<0113>
the king
<04428>_.
But Abishai
<052>
the son
<01121>
of Zeruiah
<06870>
answered
<06030> (8799)
and said
<0559> (8799)_,
Shall not Shimei
<08096>
be put to death
<04191> (8714)
for this, because he cursed
<07043> (8765)
the LORD'S
<03068>
anointed
<04899>_?
And David
<01732>
said
<0559> (8799)_,
What have I to do with you, ye sons
<01121>
of Zeruiah
<06870>_,
that ye should this day
<03117>
be adversaries
<07854>
unto me? shall there any man
<0376>
be put to death
<04191> (8714)
this day
<03117>
in Israel
<03478>_?
for do not I know
<03045> (8804)
that I [am] this day
<03117>
king
<04428>
over Israel
<03478>_?
Therefore the king
<04428>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto Shimei
<08096>_,
Thou shalt not die
<04191> (8799)_.
And the king
<04428>
sware
<07650> (8735)
unto him.
And Mephibosheth
<04648>
the son
<01121>
of Saul
<07586>
came down
<03381> (8804)
to meet
<07125> (8800)
the king
<04428>_,
and had neither
<03808>
dressed
<06213> (8804)
his feet
<07272>_,
nor trimmed
<06213> (8804)
his beard
<08222>_,
nor washed
<03526> (8765)
his clothes
<0899>_,
from the day
<03117>
the king
<04428>
departed
<03212> (8800)
until the day
<03117>
he came
<0935> (8804)
[again] in peace
<07965>_.
And it came to pass, when he was come
<0935> (8804)
to Jerusalem
<03389>
to meet
<07125> (8800)
the king
<04428>_,
that the king
<04428>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto him, Wherefore wentest
<01980> (8804)
not thou with me, Mephibosheth
<04648>_?
And he answered
<0559> (8799)_,
My lord
<0113>_,
O king
<04428>_,
my servant
<05650>
deceived
<07411> (8765)
me: for thy servant
<05650>
said
<0559> (8804)_,
I will saddle
<02280> (8799)
me an ass
<02543>_,
that I may ride
<07392> (8799)
thereon, and go
<03212> (8799)
to the king
<04428>_;
because thy servant
<05650>
[is] lame
<06455>_.
And he hath slandered
<07270> (8762)
thy servant
<05650>
unto my lord
<0113>
the king
<04428>_;
but my lord
<0113>
the king
<04428>
[is] as an angel
<04397>
of God
<0430>_:
do
<06213> (8798)
therefore [what is] good
<02896>
in thine eyes
<05869>_.
For all [of] my father's
<01>
house
<01004>
were but
<03808>
dead
<04194>
men
<0582>
before my lord
<0113>
the king
<04428>_:
yet didst thou set
<07896> (8799)
thy servant
<05650>
among them that did eat
<0398> (8802)
at thine own table
<07979>_.
What right
<06666>
therefore have
<03426>
I yet to cry
<02199> (8800)
any more unto the king
<04428>_?
{dead...: Heb. men of death}
And the king
<04428>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto him, Why speakest
<01696> (8762)
thou any more of thy matters
<01697>_?
I have said
<0559> (8804)_,
Thou and Ziba
<06717>
divide
<02505> (8799)
the land
<07704>_.
And Mephibosheth
<04648>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto the king
<04428>_,
Yea, let him take
<03947> (8799)
all, forasmuch
<0310>
as
<0834>
my lord
<0113>
the king
<04428>
is come again
<0935> (8804)
in peace
<07965>
unto his own house
<01004>_.
And Barzillai
<01271>
the Gileadite
<01569>
came down
<03381> (8804)
from Rogelim
<07274>_,
and went over
<05674> (8799)
Jordan
<03383>
with the king
<04428>_,
to conduct
<07971> (8763)
him over Jordan
<03383>_.
Now Barzillai
<01271>
was a very
<03966>
aged
<02204> (8804)
man, [even] fourscore
<08084>
years
<08141>
old
<01121>_:
and he had provided the king
<04428>
of sustenance
<03557> (8773)
while he lay
<07871>
at Mahanaim
<04266>_;
for he [was] a very
<03966>
great
<01419>
man
<0376>_.
And the king
<04428>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto Barzillai
<01271>_,
Come thou over
<05674> (8798)
with me, and I will feed
<03557> (8773)
thee with me in Jerusalem
<03389>_.
And Barzillai
<01271>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto the king
<04428>_,
How long
<03117>
have I to live
<08141> <02416>_,
that I should go up
<05927> (8799)
with the king
<04428>
unto Jerusalem
<03389>_?
{How...: Heb. How many days are the years of my life}
I [am] this day
<03117>
fourscore
<08084>
years
<08141>
old
<01121>_:
[and] can I discern
<03045> (8799)
between good
<02896>
and evil
<07451>_?
can thy servant
<05650>
taste
<02938> (8799)
what
<0834>
I eat
<0398> (8799)
or what
<0834>
I drink
<08354> (8799)_?
can I hear
<08085> (8799)
any more the voice
<06963>
of singing men
<07891> (8802)
and singing women
<07891> (8802)_?
wherefore then should thy servant
<05650>
be yet a burden
<04853>
unto my lord
<0113>
the king
<04428>_?
Thy servant
<05650>
will go
<05674> (0)
a little way
<04592>
over
<05674> (8799)
Jordan
<03383>
with the king
<04428>_:
and why should the king
<04428>
recompense
<01580> (8799)
it me with such a reward
<01578>_?
Let thy servant
<05650>_,
I pray thee, turn back again
<07725> (8799)_,
that I may die
<04191> (8799)
in mine own city
<05892>_,
[and be buried] by the grave
<06913>
of my father
<01>
and of my mother
<0517>_.
But behold thy servant
<05650>
Chimham
<03643>_;
let him go over
<05674> (8799)
with my lord
<0113>
the king
<04428>_;
and do
<06213> (8798)
to him what shall seem good
<02896> <05869>
unto thee.
And the king
<04428>
answered
<0559> (8799)_,
Chimham
<03643>
shall go
<05674> (8799)
over with me, and I will do
<06213> (8799)
to him that which shall seem good
<02896> <05869>
unto thee: and whatsoever thou shalt require
<0977> (8799)
of me, [that] will I do
<06213> (8799)
for thee. {require: Heb. choose}
And all the people
<05971>
went over
<05674> (8799)
Jordan
<03383>_.
And when the king
<04428>
was come over
<05674> (8804)_,
the king
<04428>
kissed
<05401> (8799)
Barzillai
<01271>_,
and blessed
<01288> (8762)
him; and he returned
<07725> (8799)
unto his own place
<04725>_.
Then the king
<04428>
went on
<05674> (8799)
to Gilgal
<01537>_,
and Chimham
<03643>
went on
<05674> (8804)
with him: and all the people
<05971>
of Judah
<03063>
conducted
<05674> (8689) (8675) <05674> (8686)
the king
<04428>_,
and also half
<02677>
the people
<05971>
of Israel
<03478>_.
{Chimham: Heb. Chimhan}
And, behold, all the men
<0376>
of Israel
<03478>
came
<0935> (8802)
to the king
<04428>_,
and said
<0559> (8799)
unto the king
<04428>_,
Why have our brethren
<0251>
the men
<0376>
of Judah
<03063>
stolen thee away
<01589> (8804)_,
and have brought
<05674> (8686)
the king
<04428>_,
and his household
<01004>_,
and all David's
<01732>
men
<0582>
with him, over Jordan
<03383>_?
And all the men
<0376>
of Judah
<03063>
answered
<06030> (8799)
the men
<0376>
of Israel
<03478>_,
Because the king
<04428>
[is] near of kin
<07138>
to us: wherefore then be ye angry
<02734> (8804)
for this matter
<01697>_?
have we eaten
<0398> (8804)
at all
<0398> (8800)
of the king's
<04428>
[cost]? or hath he given
<05375> (8765)
us any gift
<05379>_?
And the men
<0376>
of Israel
<03478>
answered
<06030> (8799)
the men
<0376>
of Judah
<03063>_,
and said
<0559> (8799)_,
We have ten
<06235>
parts
<03027>
in the king
<04428>_,
and we
<0589>
have also more [right] in David
<01732>
than ye: why then did ye despise
<07043> (8689)
us, that our advice
<01697>
should not be first
<07223>
had in bringing back
<07725> (8687)
our king
<04428>_?
And the words
<01697>
of the men
<0376>
of Judah
<03063>
were fiercer
<07185> (8799)
than the words
<01697>
of the men
<0376>
of Israel
<03478>_.
{despise...: Heb. set us at light}
