Judges 9:7-19

And when they told
<05046> (8686)
[it] to Jotham
<03147>_,
he went
<03212> (8799)
and stood
<05975> (8799)
in the top
<07218>
of mount
<02022>
Gerizim
<01630>_,
and lifted up
<05375> (8799)
his voice
<06963>_,
and cried
<07121> (8799)_,
and said
<0559> (8799)
unto them, Hearken
<08085> (8798)
unto me, ye men
<01167>
of Shechem
<07927>_,
that God
<0430>
may hearken
<08085> (8799)
unto you.
The trees
<06086>
went forth
<01980> (8804) (8676) <01980> (8800)
[on a time] to anoint
<04886> (8800)
a king
<04428>
over them; and they said
<0559> (8799)
unto the olive tree
<02132>_,
Reign
<04427> (8798)
thou over us.
But the olive tree
<02132>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto them, Should I leave
<02308> (8804)
my fatness
<01880>_,
wherewith by me they honour
<03513> (8762)
God
<0430>
and man
<0582>_,
and go
<01980> (8804)
to be promoted
<05128> (8800)
over the trees
<06086>_?
{go...: or, go up and down for other trees}
And the trees
<06086>
said
<0559> (8799)
to the fig tree
<08384>_,
Come
<03212> (8798)
thou, [and] reign
<04427> (8798)
over us.
But the fig tree
<08384>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto them, Should I forsake
<02308> (8804)
my sweetness
<04987>_,
and my good
<02896>
fruit
<08570>_,
and go
<01980> (8804)
to be promoted
<05128> (8800)
over the trees
<06086>_?
Then said
<0559> (8799)
the trees
<06086>
unto the vine
<01612>_,
Come
<03212> (8798)
thou, [and] reign
<04427> (8798)
over us.
And the vine
<01612>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto them, Should I leave
<02308> (8804)
my wine
<08492>_,
which cheereth
<08055> (8764)
God
<0430>
and man
<0582>_,
and go
<01980> (8804)
to be promoted
<05128> (8800)
over the trees
<06086>_?
Then said
<0559> (8799)
all the trees
<06086>
unto the bramble
<0329>_,
Come
<03212> (8798)
thou, [and] reign
<04427> (8798)
over us. {bramble: or, thistle}
And the bramble
<0329>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto the trees
<06086>_,
If in truth
<0571>
ye anoint
<04886> (8802)
me king
<04428>
over you, [then] come
<0935> (8798)
[and] put your trust
<02620> (8798)
in my shadow
<06738>_:
and if not, let fire
<0784>
come out
<03318> (8799)
of the bramble
<0329>_,
and devour
<0398> (8799)
the cedars
<0730>
of Lebanon
<03844>_.
Now therefore, if ye have done
<06213> (8804)
truly
<0571>
and sincerely
<08549>_,
in that ye have made Abimelech
<040>
king
<04427> (8686)_,
and if ye have dealt
<06213> (8804)
well
<02896>
with Jerubbaal
<03378>
and his house
<01004>_,
and have done
<06213> (8804)
unto him according to the deserving
<01576>
of his hands
<03027>_;
(For my father
<01>
fought
<03898> (8738)
for you, and adventured
<07993> (8686)
his life
<05315>
far
<05048>_,
and delivered
<05337> (8686)
you out of the hand
<03027>
of Midian
<04080>_:
{adventured...: Heb. cast his life}
And ye are risen up
<06965> (8804)
against my father's
<01>
house
<01004>
this day
<03117>_,
and have slain
<02026> (8799)
his sons
<01121>_,
threescore and ten
<07657>
persons
<0376>_,
upon one
<0259>
stone
<068>_,
and have made Abimelech
<040>_,
the son
<01121>
of his maidservant
<0519>_,
king
<04427> (8686)
over the men
<01167>
of Shechem
<07927>_,
because he [is] your brother
<0251>;)
If ye then have dealt
<06213> (8804)
truly
<0571>
and sincerely
<08549>
with Jerubbaal
<03378>
and with his house
<01004>
this day
<03117>_,
[then] rejoice
<08055> (8798)
ye in Abimelech
<040>_,
and let him also rejoice
<08055> (8799)
in you:
