2 Samuel 14:21-24


14:21 Then the king said to Joab, “All right! I 1  will do this thing! Go and bring back the young man Absalom! 14:22 Then Joab bowed down with his face toward the ground and thanked 2  the king. Joab said, “Today your servant knows that I have found favor in your sight, my lord the king, because the king has granted the request of your 3  servant!”

14:23 So Joab got up and went to Geshur and brought Absalom back to Jerusalem. 4  14:24 But the king said, “Let him go over 5  to his own house. He may not see my face.” So Absalom went over 6  to his own house; he did not see the king’s face.
