2 Samuel 15:12-13

Context
15:12 While he was offering sacrifices, Absalom sent for Ahithophel the Gilonite, David’s adviser, 1  to come from his city, Giloh. 2  The conspiracy was gaining momentum, and the people were starting to side with Absalom.

David Flees from Jerusalem

15:13 Then a messenger came to David and reported, “The men of Israel are loyal to Absalom!” 3 

1 tn Traditionally, “counselor,” but this term is more often associated with psychological counseling today, so “adviser” was used in the translation instead.

2 tn Heb “Absalom sent for Ahithophel the Gilonite, the adviser of David, from his city, from Giloh, while he was sacrificing.” It is not entirely clear who (Absalom or Ahithophel) was offering the sacrifices.

3 tn Heb “the heart of the men of Israel is with Absalom.”
