2 Samuel

Chapter 15

  1. 1. And it came to pass after this,
    H310
    that Absalom
    H53
    prepared
    H6213
    him chariots
    H4818
    and horses,
    H5483
    and fifty
    H2572
    men
    H376
    to run
    H7323
    before
    H6440
    him.
  2. 2. And Absalom
    H53
    rose up early,
    H7925
    and stood
    H5975
    beside
    H3027
    the way
    H1870
    of the gate:
    H8179
    and it was so, that when any man
    H376
    that had a controversy
    H7379
    came
    H935
    to the king
    H4428
    for judgment,
    H4941
    then Absalom
    H53
    called
    H7121
    unto him, and said,
    H559
    Of what
    H335
    city
    H5892
    art thou? And he said,
    H559
    Thy servant
    H5650
    is of one
    H259
    of the tribes
    H7626
    of Israel.
    H3478
  3. 3. And Absalom
    H53
    said
    H559
    unto him, See,
    H7200
    thy matters
    H1697
    are good
    H2896
    and right;
    H5228
    but there is no man deputed of the king
    H4428
    to hear
    H8085
    thee.
  4. 4. Absalom
    H53
    said
    H559
    moreover, Oh that I were made
    H7760
    judge
    H8199
    in the land,
    H776
    that every man
    H376
    which hath any suit
    H7379
    or cause
    H4941
    might come
    H935
    unto me, and I would do him justice!
    H6663
  5. 5. And it was so, that when any man
    H376
    came nigh
    H7126
    to him to do him obeisance,
    H7812
    he put forth
    H7971
    his hand,
    H3027
    and took
    H2388
    him, and kissed
    H5401
    him.
  6. 6. And on this manner
    H1697
    did
    H6213
    Absalom
    H53
    to all Israel
    H3478
    that came
    H935
    to the king
    H4428
    for judgment:
    H4941
    so Absalom
    H53
    stole
    H1589
    the hearts
    H3820
    of the men
    H582
    of Israel.
    H3478
  7. 7. And it came to pass after
    H7093
    forty
    H705
    years,
    H8141
    that Absalom
    H53
    said
    H559
    unto the king,
    H4428
    I pray thee, let me go
    H3212
    and pay
    H7999
    my vow,
    H5088
    which I have vowed
    H5087
    unto the LORD,
    H3068
    in Hebron.
    H2275
  8. 8. For thy servant
    H5650
    vowed
    H5087
    a vow
    H5088
    while I abode
    H3427
    at Geshur
    H1650
    in Syria,
    H758
    saying,
    H559
    If the LORD
    H3068
    shall bring me again
    H7725
    H7725
    indeed to Jerusalem,
    H3389
    then I will serve
    H5647
    the LORD.
    H3068
  9. 9. And the king
    H4428
    said
    H559
    unto him, Go
    H3212
    in peace.
    H7965
    So he arose,
    H6965
    and went
    H3212
    to Hebron.
    H2275
  10. 10. But Absalom
    H53
    sent
    H7971
    spies
    H7270
    throughout all the tribes
    H7626
    of Israel,
    H3478
    saying,
    H559
    As soon as ye hear
    H8085
    the sound
    H6963
    of the trumpet,
    H7782
    then ye shall say,
    H559
    Absalom
    H53
    reigneth
    H4427
    in Hebron.
    H2275
  11. 11. And with Absalom
    H53
    went
    H1980
    two hundred
    H3967
    men
    H376
    out of Jerusalem,
    H3389
    that were called;
    H7121
    and they went
    H1980
    in their simplicity,
    H8537
    and they knew
    H3045
    not any thing.
    H1697
  12. 12. And Absalom
    H53
    sent
    H7971
    for Ahithophel
    H302
    the Gilonite,
    H1526
    David's
    H1732
    counsellor,
    H3289
    from his city,
    H5892
    even from Giloh,
    H1542
    while he offered
    H2076
    sacrifices.
    H2077
    And the conspiracy
    H7195
    was strong;
    H533
    for the people
    H5971
    increased
    H7227
    continually
    H1980
    with Absalom.
    H53
  13. 13. And there came
    H935
    a messenger
    H5046
    to David,
    H1732
    saying,
    H559
    The hearts
    H3820
    of the men
    H376
    of Israel
    H3478
    are after
    H310
    Absalom.
    H53
  14. 14. And David
    H1732
    said
    H559
    unto all his servants
    H5650
    that were with him at Jerusalem,
    H3389
    Arise,
    H6965
    and let us flee;
    H1272
    for we shall not else escape
    H6413
    from
    H6440
    Absalom:
    H53
    make speed
    H4116
    to depart,
    H3212
    lest he overtake
    H5381
    us suddenly,
    H4116
    and bring
    H5080
    evil
    H7451
    upon us, and smite
    H5221
    the city
    H5892
    with the edge
    H6310
    of the sword.
    H2719
  15. 15. And the king's
    H4428
    servants
    H5650
    said
    H559
    unto the king,
    H4428
    Behold, thy servants
    H5650
    are ready to do whatsoever my lord
    H113
    the king
    H4428
    shall appoint.
    H977
  16. 16. And the king
    H4428
    went forth,
    H3318
    and all his household
    H1004
    after
    H7272
    him. And the king
    H4428
    left
    H5800
    ten
    H6235
    women,
    H802
    which were concubines,
    H6370
    to keep
    H8104
    the house.
    H1004
  17. 17. And the king
    H4428
    went forth,
    H3318
    and all the people
    H5971
    after
    H7272
    him, and tarried
    H5975
    in a place
    H1004
    that was far off.
    H4801
    H1023
  18. 18. And all his servants
    H5650
    passed on
    H5674
    beside
    H3027
    him; and all the Cherethites,
    H3774
    and all the Pelethites,
    H6432
    and all the Gittites,
    H1663
    six
    H8337
    hundred
    H3967
    men
    H376
    which came
    H935
    after
    H7272
    him from Gath,
    H1661
    passed on
    H5674
    before
    H6440
    the king.
    H4428
  19. 19. Then said
    H559
    the king
    H4428
    to Ittai
    H863
    the Gittite,
    H1663
    Wherefore goest
    H3212
    thou also with us? return
    H7725
    to thy place,
    H4725
    and abide
    H3427
    with the king:
    H4428
    for thou art a stranger,
    H5237
    and also an exile.
    H1540
  20. 20. Whereas thou camest
    H935
    but yesterday,
    H8543
    should I this day
    H3117
    make thee go
    H3212
    up and down
    H5128
    H5128
    with us? seeing I go
    H1980
    whither I may, return
    H7725
    thou, and take back
    H7725
    thy brethren:
    H251
    mercy
    H2617
    and truth
    H571
    be with thee.
  21. 21. And Ittai
    H863
    answered
    H6030
    the king,
    H4428
    and said,
    H559
    As the LORD
    H3068
    liveth,
    H2416
    and as my lord
    H113
    the king
    H4428
    liveth,
    H2416
    surely in what place
    H4725
    my lord
    H113
    the king
    H4428
    shall be, whether in death
    H4194
    or life,
    H2416
    even there also will thy servant
    H5650
    be.
  22. 22. And David
    H1732
    said
    H559
    to Ittai,
    H863
    Go
    H3212
    and pass over.
    H5674
    And Ittai
    H863
    the Gittite
    H1663
    passed over,
    H5674
    and all his men,
    H582
    and all the little ones
    H2945
    that were with him.
  23. 23. And all the country
    H776
    wept
    H1058
    with a loud
    H1419
    voice,
    H6963
    and all the people
    H5971
    passed over:
    H5674
    the king
    H4428
    also himself passed over
    H5674
    the brook
    H5158
    Kidron,
    H6939
    and all the people
    H5971
    passed over,
    H5674
    toward
    H6440
    the way
    H1870
    of the wilderness.
    H4057
  24. 24. And lo Zadok
    H6659
    also, and all the Levites
    H3881
    were with him, bearing
    H5375
    the ark
    H727
    of the covenant
    H1285
    of God:
    H430
    and they set down
    H3332
    the ark
    H727
    of God;
    H430
    and Abiathar
    H54
    went up,
    H5927
    until all the people
    H5971
    had done
    H8552
    passing
    H5674
    out of the city.
    H5892
  25. 25. And the king
    H4428
    said
    H559
    unto Zadok,
    H6659
    Carry back
    H7725
    the ark
    H727
    of God
    H430
    into the city:
    H5892
    if I shall find
    H4672
    favour
    H2580
    in the eyes
    H5869
    of the LORD,
    H3068
    he will bring me again,
    H7725
    and shew
    H7200
    me both it, and his habitation:
    H5116
  26. 26. But if he thus say,
    H559
    I have no delight
    H2654
    in thee; behold, here am I, let him do
    H6213
    to me as seemeth
    H5869
    good
    H2896
    unto him.
  27. 27. The king
    H4428
    said
    H559
    also unto Zadok
    H6659
    the priest,
    H3548
    Art not thou a seer?
    H7200
    return
    H7725
    into the city
    H5892
    in peace,
    H7965
    and your two
    H8147
    sons
    H1121
    with you, Ahimaaz
    H290
    thy son,
    H1121
    and Jonathan
    H3083
    the son
    H1121
    of Abiathar.
    H54
  28. 28. See,
    H7200
    I will tarry
    H4102
    in the plain
    H6160
    H5679
    of the wilderness,
    H4057
    until there come
    H935
    word
    H1697
    from you to certify
    H5046
    me.
  29. 29. Zadok
    H6659
    therefore and Abiathar
    H54
    carried
    H7725
    the ark
    H727
    of God
    H430
    again
    H7725
    to Jerusalem:
    H3389
    and they tarried
    H3427
    there.
  30. 30. And David
    H1732
    went up
    H5927
    by the ascent
    H4608
    of mount Olivet,
    H2132
    and wept
    H1058
    as he went up,
    H5927
    and had his head
    H7218
    covered,
    H2645
    and he went
    H1980
    barefoot:
    H3182
    and all the people
    H5971
    that was with him covered
    H2645
    every man
    H376
    his head,
    H7218
    and they went up,
    H5927
    weeping
    H1058
    as they went up.
    H5927
  31. 31. And one told
    H5046
    David,
    H1732
    saying,
    H559
    Ahithophel
    H302
    is among the conspirators
    H7194
    with Absalom.
    H53
    And David
    H1732
    said,
    H559
    O LORD,
    H3068
    I pray thee, turn the counsel
    H6098
    of Ahithophel
    H302
    into foolishness.
    H5528
  32. 32. And it came to pass, that when David
    H1732
    was come
    H935
    to the top
    H7218
    of the mount, where he worshipped
    H7812
    God,
    H430
    behold, Hushai
    H2365
    the Archite
    H757
    came to meet
    H7125
    him with his coat
    H3801
    rent,
    H7167
    and earth
    H127
    upon his head:
    H7218
  33. 33. Unto whom David
    H1732
    said,
    H559
    If thou passest on
    H5674
    with me, then thou shalt be a burden
    H4853
    unto me:
  34. 34. But if thou return
    H7725
    to the city,
    H5892
    and say
    H559
    unto Absalom,
    H53
    I will be thy servant,
    H5650
    O king;
    H4428
    as I have been thy father's
    H1
    servant
    H5650
    hitherto,
    H227
    so will I now also be thy servant:
    H5650
    then mayest thou for me defeat
    H6565
    the counsel
    H6098
    of Ahithophel.
    H302
  35. 35. And hast thou not there with thee Zadok
    H6659
    and Abiathar
    H54
    the priests?
    H3548
    therefore it shall be, that what thing
    H1697
    soever thou shalt hear
    H8085
    out of the king's
    H4428
    house,
    H1004
    thou shalt tell
    H5046
    it to Zadok
    H6659
    and Abiathar
    H54
    the priests.
    H3548
  36. 36. Behold, they have there with them their two
    H8147
    sons,
    H1121
    Ahimaaz
    H290
    Zadok's
    H6659
    son, and Jonathan
    H3083
    Abiathar's
    H54
    son; and by them
    H3027
    ye shall send
    H7971
    unto me every thing
    H1697
    that ye can hear.
    H8085
  37. 37. So Hushai
    H2365
    David's
    H1732
    friend
    H7463
    came
    H935
    into the city,
    H5892
    and Absalom
    H53
    came
    H935
    into Jerusalem.
