But those enemies of mine who did not want me to be a king over them—bring them here and kill them in front of me.’"
"But these enemies of mine, who did not want me to reign over them, bring them here and slay them in my presence."
And now about these enemies of mine who didn’t want me to be their king––bring them in and execute them right here in my presence.’"
"'As for these enemies of mine who petitioned against my rule, clear them out of here. I don't want to see their faces around here again.'"
And as for those who were against me, who would not have me for their ruler, let them come here, and be put to death before me.
But as for these enemies of mine who did not want me to be king over them—bring them here and slaughter them in my presence.’"
‘But bring here those enemies of mine, who did not want me to reign over them, and slay them before me.’"
