Chapter 14

  1. 1. Now Joab
    H3097
    the son
    H1121
    of Zeruiah
    H6870
    perceived
    H3045
    that the king's
    H4428
    heart
    H3820
    was toward Absalom.
    H53
  2. 2. And Joab
    H3097
    sent
    H7971
    to Tekoah,
    H8620
    and fetched
    H3947
    thence a wise
    H2450
    woman,
    H802
    and said
    H559
    unto her, I pray thee, feign thyself to be a mourner,
    H56
    and put on
    H3847
    now mourning
    H60
    apparel,
    H899
    and anoint
    H5480
    not thyself with oil,
    H8081
    but be as a woman
    H802
    that had a long
    H7227
    time
    H3117
    mourned
    H56
    for the dead:
    H4191
  3. 3. And come
    H935
    to the king,
    H4428
    and speak
    H1696
    on this manner
    H1697
    unto him. So Joab
    H3097
    put
    H7760
    the words
    H1697
    in her mouth.
    H6310
  4. 4. And when the woman
    H802
    of Tekoah
    H8621
    spake
    H559
    to the king,
    H4428
    she fell
    H5307
    on her face
    H639
    to the ground,
    H776
    and did obeisance,
    H7812
    and said,
    H559
    Help,
    H3467
    O king.
    H4428
  5. 5. And the king
    H4428
    said
    H559
    unto her, What aileth thee? And she answered,
    H559
    I am indeed
    H61
    a widow
    H490
    woman,
    H802
    and mine husband
    H376
    is dead.
    H4191
  6. 6. And thy handmaid
    H8198
    had two
    H8147
    sons,
    H1121
    and they two
    H8147
    strove together
    H5327
    in the field,
    H7704
    and there was none to part
    H5337
    them, but the one
    H259
    smote
    H5221
    the other,
    H259
    and slew
    H4191
    him.
  7. 7. And, behold, the whole family
    H4940
    is risen
    H6965
    against thine handmaid,
    H8198
    and they said,
    H559
    Deliver
    H5414
    him that smote
    H5221
    his brother,
    H251
    that we may kill
    H4191
    him, for the life
    H5315
    of his brother
    H251
    whom he slew;
    H2026
    and we will destroy
    H8045
    the heir
    H3423
    also: and so they shall quench
    H3518
    my coal
    H1513
    which is left,
    H7760
    and shall not leave
    H7604
    to my husband
    H376
    neither name
    H8034
    nor remainder
    H7611
    upon
    H6440
    the earth.
    H127
  8. 8. And the king
    H4428
    said
    H559
    unto the woman,
    H802
    Go
    H3212
    to thine house,
    H1004
    and I will give charge
    H6680
    concerning thee.
  9. 9. And the woman
    H802
    of Tekoah
    H8621
    said
    H559
    unto the king,
    H4428
    My lord,
    H113
    O king,
    H4428
    the iniquity
    H5771
    be on me, and on my father's
    H1
    house:
    H1004
    and the king
    H4428
    and his throne
    H3678
    be guiltless.
    H5355
  10. 10. And the king
    H4428
    said,
    H559
    Whosoever saith
    H1696
    ought unto thee, bring
    H935
    him to me, and he shall not touch
    H5060
    thee any more.
    H3254
  11. 11. Then said
    H559
    she, I pray thee, let the king
    H4428
    remember
    H2142
    the LORD
    H3068
    thy God,
    H430
    that thou wouldest not suffer the revengers
    H1350
    of blood
    H1818
    to destroy
    H7843
    any more,
    H7235
    lest they destroy
    H8045
    my son.
    H1121
    And he said,
    H559
    As the LORD
    H3068
    liveth,
    H2416
    there shall not one hair
    H8185
    of thy son
    H1121
    fall
    H5307
    to the earth.
    H776
  12. 12. Then the woman
    H802
    said,
    H559
    Let thine handmaid,
    H8198
    I pray thee, speak
    H1696
    one word
    H1697
    unto my lord
    H113
    the king.
    H4428
    And he said,
    H559
    Say on.
    H1696
  13. 13. And the woman
    H802
    said,
    H559
    Wherefore then hast thou thought
    H2803
    such a thing against the people
    H5971
    of God?
    H430
    for the king
    H4428
    doth speak
    H1696
    this thing
    H1697
    as one which is faulty,
    H818
    in that the king
    H4428
    doth not fetch home again
    H7725
    his banished.
    H5080
  14. 14. For we must needs
    H4191
    die,
    H4191
    and are as water
    H4325
    spilt
    H5064
    on the ground,
    H776
    which cannot be gathered up again;
    H622
    neither doth God
    H430
    respect
    H5375
    any person:
    H5315
    yet doth he devise
    H2803
    means,
    H4284
    that his banished
    H5080
    be not expelled
    H5080
    from him.
  15. 15. Now therefore that I am come
    H935
    to speak
    H1696
    of this thing
    H1697
    unto my lord
    H113
    the king,
    H4428
    it is because the people
    H5971
    have made me afraid:
    H3372
    and thy handmaid
    H8198
    said,
    H559
    I will now speak
    H1696
    unto the king;
    H4428
    it may be that the king
    H4428
    will perform
    H6213
    the request
    H1697
    of his handmaid.
    H519
  16. 16. For the king
    H4428
    will hear,
    H8085
    to deliver
    H5337
    his handmaid
    H519
    out of the hand
    H3709
    of the man
    H376
    that would destroy
    H8045
    me and my son
    H1121
    together
    H3162
    out of the inheritance
    H5159
    of God.
    H430
  17. 17. Then thine handmaid
    H8198
    said,
    H559
    The word
    H1697
    of my lord
    H113
    the king
    H4428
    shall now be comfortable:
    H4496
    for as an angel
    H4397
    of God,
    H430
    so is my lord
    H113
    the king
    H4428
    to discern
    H8085
    good
    H2896
    and bad:
    H7451
    therefore the LORD
    H3068
    thy God
    H430
    will be with thee.
  18. 18. Then the king
    H4428
    answered
    H6030
    and said
    H559
    unto the woman,
    H802
    Hide
    H3582
    not from me, I pray thee, the thing
    H1697
    that I shall ask
    H7592
    thee. And the woman
    H802
    said,
    H559
    Let my lord
    H113
    the king
    H4428
    now speak.
    H1696
  19. 19. And the king
    H4428
    said,
    H559
    Is not the hand
    H3027
    of Joab
    H3097
    with thee in all this? And the woman
    H802
    answered
    H6030
    and said,
    H559
    As thy soul
    H5315
    liveth,
    H2416
    my lord
    H113
    the king,
    H4428
    none
    H376
    can
    H786
    turn to the right hand
    H3231
    or to the left
    H8041
    from ought that my lord
    H113
    the king
    H4428
    hath spoken:
    H1696
    for thy servant
    H5650
    Joab,
    H3097
    he bade
    H6680
    me, and he put
    H7760
    all these words
    H1697
    in the mouth
    H6310
    of thine handmaid:
    H8198
  20. 20. To
    H5668
    fetch about
    H5437
    this form
    H6440
    of speech
    H1697
    hath thy servant
    H5650
    Joab
    H3097
    done
    H6213
    this thing:
    H1697
    and my lord
    H113
    is wise,
    H2450
    according to the wisdom
    H2451
    of an angel
    H4397
    of God,
    H430
    to know
    H3045
    all things that are in the earth.
    H776
  21. 21. And the king
    H4428
    said
    H559
    unto Joab,
    H3097
    Behold now, I have done
    H6213
    this thing:
    H1697
    go
    H3212
    therefore, bring
    H7725
    the young man
    H5288
    Absalom
    H53
    again.
    H7725
  22. 22. And Joab
    H3097
    fell
    H5307
    to the ground
    H776
    on his face,
    H6440
    and bowed
    H7812
    himself, and thanked
    H1288
    the king:
    H4428
    and Joab
    H3097
    said,
    H559
    To day
    H3117
    thy servant
    H5650
    knoweth
    H3045
    that I have found
    H4672
    grace
    H2580
    in thy sight,
    H5869
    my lord,
    H113
    O king,
    H4428
    in that the king
    H4428
    hath fulfilled
    H6213
    the request
    H1697
    of his servant.
    H5650
  23. 23. So Joab
    H3097
    arose
    H6965
    and went
    H3212
    to Geshur,
    H1650
    and brought
    H935
    Absalom
    H53
    to Jerusalem.
    H3389
  24. 24. And the king
    H4428
    said,
    H559
    Let him turn
    H5437
    to his own house,
    H1004
    and let him not see
    H7200
    my face.
    H6440
    So Absalom
    H53
    returned
    H5437
    to his own house,
    H1004
    and saw
    H7200
    not the king's
    H4428
    face.
    H6440
  25. 25. But in all Israel
    H3478
    there was none
    H376
    to be so much
    H3966
    praised
    H1984
    as Absalom
    H53
    for his beauty:
    H3303
    from the sole
    H3709
    of his foot
    H7272
    even to the crown of his head
    H6936
    there was no blemish
    H3971
    in him.
  26. 26. And when he polled
    H1548
    his head,
    H7218
    (for it was at every year's
    H3117
    H3117
    end
    H7093
    that he polled
    H1548
    it: because the hair was heavy
    H3513
    on him, therefore he polled
    H1548
    it:) he weighed
    H8254
    the hair
    H8181
    of his head
    H7218
    at two hundred
    H3967
    shekels
    H8255
    after the king's
    H4428
    weight.
    H68
  27. 27. And unto Absalom
    H53
    there were born
    H3205
    three
    H7969
    sons,
    H1121
    and one
    H259
    daughter,
    H1323
    whose name
    H8034
    was Tamar:
    H8559
    she was a woman
    H802
    of a fair
    H3303
    countenance.
    H4758
  28. 28. So Absalom
    H53
    dwelt
    H3427
    two full
    H3117
    years
    H8141
    in Jerusalem,
    H3389
    and saw
    H7200
    not the king's
    H4428
    face.
    H6440
  29. 29. Therefore Absalom
    H53
    sent
    H7971
    for Joab,
    H3097
    to have sent
    H7971
    him to the king;
    H4428
    but he would
    H14
    not come
    H935
    to him: and when he sent again
    H7971
    the second time,
    H8145
    he would
    H14
    not come.
    H935
  30. 30. Therefore he said
    H559
    unto his servants,
    H5650
    See,
    H7200
    Joab's
    H3097
    field
    H2513
    is near
    H413
    mine,
    H3027
    and he hath barley
    H8184
    there; go
    H3212
    and set
    H3341
    it on fire.
    H784
    And Absalom's
    H53
    servants
    H5650
    set
    H3341
    the field
    H2513
    on fire.
    H784
  31. 31. Then Joab
    H3097
    arose,
    H6965
    and came
    H935
    to Absalom
    H53
    unto his house,
    H1004
    and said
    H559
    unto him, Wherefore have thy servants
    H5650
    set
    H3341
    my field
    H2513
    on fire?
    H784
  32. 32. And Absalom
    H53
    answered
    H559
    Joab,
    H3097
    Behold, I sent
    H7971
    unto thee, saying,
    H559
    Come
    H935
    hither, that I may send
    H7971
    thee to the king,
    H4428
    to say,
    H559
    Wherefore am I come
    H935
    from Geshur?
    H1650
    it had been good
    H2896
    for me to have been there still: now therefore let me see
    H7200
    the king's
    H4428
    face;
    H6440
    and if there be
    H3426
    any iniquity
    H5771
    in me, let him kill
    H4191
    me.
  33. 33. So Joab
    H3097
    came
    H935
    to the king,
    H4428
    and told
    H5046
    him: and when he had called
    H7121
    for Absalom,
    H53
    he came
    H935
    to the king,
    H4428
    and bowed
    H7812
    himself on his face
    H639
    to the ground
    H776
    before
    H6440
    the king:
    H4428
    and the king
    H4428
    kissed
    H5401
    Absalom.
