Chapter 16

  1. 1. And when David
    H1732
    was a little
    H4592
    past
    H5674
    the top
    H7218
    of the hill, behold, Ziba
    H6717
    the servant
    H5288
    of Mephibosheth
    H4648
    met
    H7125
    him, with a couple
    H6776
    of asses
    H2543
    saddled,
    H2280
    and upon them two hundred
    H3967
    loaves of bread,
    H3899
    and an hundred
    H3967
    bunches of raisins,
    H6778
    and an hundred
    H3967
    of summer fruits,
    H7019
    and a bottle
    H5035
    of wine.
    H3196
  2. 2. And the king
    H4428
    said
    H559
    unto Ziba,
    H6717
    What meanest thou by these? And Ziba
    H6717
    said,
    H559
    The asses
    H2543
    be for the king's
    H4428
    household
    H1004
    to ride on;
    H7392
    and the bread
    H3899
    and summer fruit
    H7019
    for the young men
    H5288
    to eat;
    H398
    and the wine,
    H3196
    that such as be faint
    H3287
    in the wilderness
    H4057
    may drink.
    H8354
  3. 3. And the king
    H4428
    said,
    H559
    And where is thy master's
    H113
    son?
    H1121
    And Ziba
    H6717
    said
    H559
    unto the king,
    H4428
    Behold, he abideth
    H3427
    at Jerusalem:
    H3389
    for he said,
    H559
    To day
    H3117
    shall the house
    H1004
    of Israel
    H3478
    restore
    H7725
    me the kingdom
    H4468
    of my father.
    H1
  4. 4. Then said
    H559
    the king
    H4428
    to Ziba,
    H6717
    Behold, thine are all that pertained unto Mephibosheth.
    H4648
    And Ziba
    H6717
    said,
    H559
    I humbly
    H7812
    beseech thee that I may find
    H4672
    grace
    H2580
    in thy sight,
    H5869
    my lord,
    H113
    O king.
    H4428
  5. 5. And when king
    H4428
    David
    H1732
    came
    H935
    to Bahurim,
    H980
    behold, thence came out
    H3318
    a man
    H376
    of the family
    H4940
    of the house
    H1004
    of Saul,
    H7586
    whose name
    H8034
    was Shimei,
    H8096
    the son
    H1121
    of Gera:
    H1617
    he came forth,
    H3318
    and cursed
    H7043
    still as he came.
    H3318
  6. 6. And he cast
    H5619
    stones
    H68
    at David,
    H1732
    and at all the servants
    H5650
    of king
    H4428
    David:
    H1732
    and all the people
    H5971
    and all the mighty men
    H1368
    were on his right hand
    H3225
    and on his left.
    H8040
  7. 7. And thus said
    H559
    Shimei
    H8096
    when he cursed,
    H7043
    Come out,
    H3318
    come out,
    H3318
    thou bloody
    H1818
    man,
    H376
    and thou man
    H376
    of Belial:
    H1100
  8. 8. The LORD
    H3068
    hath returned
    H7725
    upon thee all the blood
    H1818
    of the house
    H1004
    of Saul,
    H7586
    in whose stead thou hast reigned;
    H4427
    and the LORD
    H3068
    hath delivered
    H5414
    the kingdom
    H4410
    into the hand
    H3027
    of Absalom
    H53
    thy son:
    H1121
    and, behold, thou art taken in thy mischief,
    H7451
    because thou art a bloody
    H1818
    man.
    H376
  9. 9. Then said
    H559
    Abishai
    H52
    the son
    H1121
    of Zeruiah
    H6870
    unto the king,
    H4428
    Why should this dead
    H4191
    dog
    H3611
    curse
    H7043
    my lord
    H113
    the king?
    H4428
    let me go over,
    H5674
    I pray thee, and take off
    H5493
    his head.
    H7218
  10. 10. And the king
    H4428
    said,
    H559
    What have I to do with you, ye sons
    H1121
    of Zeruiah?
    H6870
    so let him curse,
    H7043
    because the LORD
    H3068
    hath said
    H559
    unto him, Curse
    H7043
    David.
    H1732
    Who shall then say,
    H559
    Wherefore hast thou done so?
    H6213
  11. 11. And David
    H1732
    said
    H559
    to Abishai,
    H52
    and to all his servants,
    H5650
    Behold, my son,
    H1121
    which came forth
    H3318
    of my bowels,
    H4578
    seeketh
    H1245
    my life:
    H5315
    how much more now may this Benjamite
    H1145
    do it? let him alone,
    H3240
    and let him curse;
    H7043
    for the LORD
    H3068
    hath bidden
    H559
    him.
  12. 12. It may be that the LORD
    H3068
    will look
    H7200
    on mine affliction,
    H5869
    H6040
    and that the LORD
    H3068
    will requite
    H7725
    me good
    H2896
    for his cursing
    H7045
    this day.
    H3117
  13. 13. And as David
    H1732
    and his men
    H582
    went
    H3212
    by the way,
    H1870
    Shimei
    H8096
    went along
    H1980
    on the hill's
    H2022
    side
    H6763
    over against
    H5980
    him, and cursed
    H7043
    as he went,
    H1980
    and threw
    H5619
    stones
    H68
    at
    H5980
    him, and cast
    H6080
    dust.
    H6083
  14. 14. And the king,
    H4428
    and all the people
    H5971
    that were with him, came
    H935
    weary,
    H5889
    and refreshed
    H5314
    themselves there.
  15. 15. And Absalom,
    H53
    and all the people
    H5971
    the men
    H376
    of Israel,
    H3478
    came
    H935
    to Jerusalem,
    H3389
    and Ahithophel
    H302
    with him.
  16. 16. And it came to pass, when Hushai
    H2365
    the Archite,
    H757
    David's
    H1732
    friend,
    H7463
    was come
    H935
    unto Absalom,
    H53
    that Hushai
    H2365
    said
    H559
    unto Absalom,
    H53
    God save
    H2421
    the king,
    H4428
    God save
    H2421
    the king.
    H4428
  17. 17. And Absalom
    H53
    said
    H559
    to Hushai,
    H2365
    Is this thy kindness
    H2617
    to thy friend?
    H7453
    why wentest
    H1980
    thou not with thy friend?
    H7453
  18. 18. And Hushai
    H2365
    said
    H559
    unto Absalom,
    H53
    Nay; but whom the LORD,
    H3068
    and this people,
    H5971
    and all the men
    H376
    of Israel,
    H3478
    choose,
    H977
    his will I be, and with him will I abide.
    H3427
  19. 19. And again,
    H8145
    whom should I serve?
    H5647
    should I not serve in the presence
    H6440
    of his son?
    H1121
    as I have served
    H5647
    in thy father's
    H1
    presence,
    H6440
    so will I be in thy presence.
    H6440
  20. 20. Then said
    H559
    Absalom
    H53
    to Ahithophel,
    H302
    Give
    H3051
    counsel
    H6098
    among you what we shall do.
    H6213
  21. 21. And Ahithophel
    H302
    said
    H559
    unto Absalom,
    H53
    Go in
    H935
    unto thy father's
    H1
    concubines,
    H6370
    which he hath left
    H3240
    to keep
    H8104
    the house;
    H1004
    and all Israel
    H3478
    shall hear
    H8085
    that thou art abhorred
    H887
    of thy father:
    H1
    then shall the hands
    H3027
    of all that are with thee be strong.
    H2388
  22. 22. So they spread
    H5186
    Absalom
    H53
    a tent
    H168
    upon the top of the house;
    H1406
    and Absalom
    H53
    went in
    H935
    unto his father's
    H1
    concubines
    H6370
    in the sight
    H5869
    of all Israel.
    H3478
  23. 23. And the counsel
    H6098
    of Ahithophel,
    H302
    which he counselled
    H3289
    in those days,
    H3117
    was as if a man
    H376
    had enquired
    H7592
    at the oracle
    H1697
    of God:
    H430
    so was all the counsel
    H6098
    of Ahithophel
    H302
    both with David
    H1732
    and with Absalom.
