2 Samuel 15:1-13

And it came to pass after this
<0310>_,
that Absalom
<053>
prepared
<06213> (8799)
him chariots
<04818>
and horses
<05483>_,
and fifty
<02572>
men
<0376>
to run
<07323> (8801)
before
<06440>
him.
And Absalom
<053>
rose up early
<07925> (8689)_,
and stood
<05975> (8804)
beside
<03027>
the way
<01870>
of the gate
<08179>_:
and it was [so], that when any man
<0376>
that had a controversy
<07379>
came
<0935> (8800)
to the king
<04428>
for judgment
<04941>_,
then Absalom
<053>
called
<07121> (8799)
unto him, and said
<0559> (8799)_,
Of what
<0335>
city
<05892>
[art] thou? And he said
<0559> (8799)_,
Thy servant
<05650>
[is] of one
<0259>
of the tribes
<07626>
of Israel
<03478>_.
{came: Heb. to come}
And Absalom
<053>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto him, See
<07200> (8798)_,
thy matters
<01697>
[are] good
<02896>
and right
<05228>_;
but [there is] no man [deputed] of the king
<04428>
to hear
<08085> (8802)
thee. {there...: or, none will hear thee from the king downward}
Absalom
<053>
said
<0559> (8799)
moreover, Oh that I were made
<07760> (8799)
judge
<08199> (8802)
in the land
<0776>_,
that every man
<0376>
which hath any suit
<07379>
or cause
<04941>
might come
<0935> (8799)
unto me, and I would do him justice
<06663> (8689)_!
And it was [so], that when any man
<0376>
came nigh
<07126> (8800)
[to him] to do him obeisance
<07812> (8692)_,
he put forth
<07971> (8804)
his hand
<03027>_,
and took
<02388> (8689)
him, and kissed
<05401> (8804)
him.
And on this manner
<01697>
did
<06213> (8799)
Absalom
<053>
to all Israel
<03478>
that came
<0935> (8799)
to the king
<04428>
for judgment
<04941>_:
so Absalom
<053>
stole
<01589> (8762)
the hearts
<03820>
of the men
<0582>
of Israel
<03478>_.
And it came to pass after
<07093>
forty
<0705>
years
<08141>_,
that Absalom
<053>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto the king
<04428>_,
I pray thee, let me go
<03212> (8799)
and pay
<07999> (8762)
my vow
<05088>_,
which I have vowed
<05087> (8804)
unto the LORD
<03068>_,
in Hebron
<02275>_.
For thy servant
<05650>
vowed
<05087> (8804)
a vow
<05088>
while I abode
<03427> (8800)
at Geshur
<01650>
in Syria
<0758>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
If the LORD
<03068>
shall bring me again
<07725> (8799) (8676) <07725> (8686)
indeed to Jerusalem
<03389>_,
then I will serve
<05647> (8804)
the LORD
<03068>_.
And the king
<04428>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto him, Go
<03212> (8798)
in peace
<07965>_.
So he arose
<06965> (8799)_,
and went
<03212> (8799)
to Hebron
<02275>_.
But Absalom
<053>
sent
<07971> (8799)
spies
<07270> (8764)
throughout all the tribes
<07626>
of Israel
<03478>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
As soon as ye hear
<08085> (8800)
the sound
<06963>
of the trumpet
<07782>_,
then ye shall say
<0559> (8804)_,
Absalom
<053>
reigneth
<04427> (8804)
in Hebron
<02275>_.
And with Absalom
<053>
went
<01980> (8804)
two hundred
<03967>
men
<0376>
out of Jerusalem
<03389>_,
[that were] called
<07121> (8803)_;
and they went
<01980> (8802)
in their simplicity
<08537>_,
and they knew
<03045> (8804)
not any thing
<01697>_.
And Absalom
<053>
sent
<07971> (8799)
for Ahithophel
<0302>
the Gilonite
<01526>_,
David's
<01732>
counsellor
<03289> (8802)_,
from his city
<05892>_,
[even] from Giloh
<01542>_,
while he offered
<02076> (8800)
sacrifices
<02077>_.
And the conspiracy
<07195>
was strong
<0533>_;
for the people
<05971>
increased
<07227>
continually
<01980> (8802)
with Absalom
<053>_.
And there came
<0935> (8799)
a messenger
<05046> (8688)
to David
<01732>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
The hearts
<03820>
of the men
<0376>
of Israel
<03478>
are after
<0310>
Absalom
<053>_.
