Say to Amasa, ‘Are you not my flesh and blood? 1 God will punish me severely, 2 if from this time on you are not the commander of my army in place of Joab!’”
When they were near the big rock that is in Gibeon, Amasa came to them. Now Joab was dressed in military attire and had a dagger in its sheath belted to his waist. When he advanced, it fell out. 1
So Joab’s men 1 came and laid siege against him in Abel of Beth Maacah. They prepared a siege ramp outside the city which stood against its outer rampart. As all of Joab’s soldiers were trying to break through 2 the wall so that it would collapse,
Abishai son of Zeruiah, the brother of Joab, was head of the three. 1 He killed three hundred men with his spear and gained fame among the three. 2
The king told Joab, the general in command of his army, “Go through all the tribes of Israel from Dan to Beer Sheba and muster the army, so I may know the size of the army.”
Joab replied to the king, “May the Lord your God make the army a hundred times larger right before the eyes of my lord the king! But why does my master the king want to do this?”
Joab reported the number of warriors 1 to the king. In Israel there were 800,000 sword-wielding warriors, and in Judah there were 500,000 soldiers.
Now Adonijah and all his guests heard the commotion just as they had finished eating. 1 When Joab heard the sound of the trumpet, he asked, “Why is there such a noisy commotion in the city?” 2
King Solomon answered his mother, “Why just request Abishag the Shunammite for him? 1 Since he is my older brother, you should also request the kingdom for him, for Abiathar the priest, and for Joab son of Zeruiah!”
When King Solomon heard 1 that Joab had run to the tent of the Lord and was right there beside the altar, he ordered Benaiah son of Jehoiada, 2 “Go, strike him down.”
When Benaiah arrived at the tent of the Lord, he said to him, “The king says, ‘Come out!’” But he replied, “No, I will die here!” So Benaiah sent word to the king and reported Joab’s reply. 1
The king told him, “Do as he said! Strike him down and bury him. Take away from me and from my father’s family 1 the guilt of Joab’s murderous, bloody deeds. 2
While in Egypt Hadad heard that David had passed away 1 and that Joab, the commander of the army, was dead. So Hadad asked Pharaoh, “Give me permission to leave 2 so I can return to my homeland.”
David told Joab and the leaders of the army, 1 “Go, count the number of warriors 2 from Beer Sheba to Dan. Then bring back a report to me so I may know how many we have.” 3
Joab replied, “May the Lord make his army 1 a hundred times larger! My master, O king, do not all of them serve my master? Why does my master want to do this? Why bring judgment on Israel?” 2
Joab reported to David the number of warriors. 1 In all Israel there were 1,100,000 2 sword-wielding soldiers; Judah alone had 470,000 sword-wielding soldiers. 3
They were also in charge of everything dedicated by Samuel the prophet, 1 Saul son of Kish, Abner son of Ner, and Joab son of Zeruiah; Shelomith and his relatives were in charge of everything that had been dedicated.
Joab son of Zeruiah started to count the men but did not finish. God was angry with Israel 1 because of this, so the number was not recorded in the scroll 2 called The Annals of King David.
Uriah replied to David, “The ark and Israel and Judah reside in temporary shelters, and my lord Joab and my lord’s soldiers are camping in the open field. Should I go to my house to eat and drink and have marital relations 1 with my wife? As surely as you are alive, 2 I will not do this thing!”
Absalom said to Joab, “Look, I sent a message to you saying, ‘Come here so that I can send you to the king with this message: 1 “Why have I come from Geshur? It would be better for me if I were still there.”’ Let me now see the face of the king. If I am at fault, let him put me to death!”
