Chapter 17

  1. 1. Moreover Ahithophel
    H302
    said
    H559
    unto Absalom,
    H53
    Let me now choose out
    H977
    twelve
    H6240
    H8147
    thousand
    H505
    men,
    H376
    and I will arise
    H6965
    and pursue
    H7291
    after
    H310
    David
    H1732
    this night:
    H3915
  2. 2. And I will come
    H935
    upon him while he is weary
    H3023
    and weak
    H7504
    handed,
    H3027
    and will make him afraid:
    H2729
    and all the people
    H5971
    that are with him shall flee;
    H5127
    and I will smite
    H5221
    the king
    H4428
    only:
  3. 3. And I will bring back
    H7725
    all the people
    H5971
    unto thee: the man
    H376
    whom thou seekest
    H1245
    is as if all returned:
    H7725
    so all the people
    H5971
    shall be in peace.
    H7965
  4. 4. And the saying
    H1697
    pleased
    H3474
    Absalom
    H53
    well,
    H5869
    and all the elders
    H2205
    of Israel.
    H3478
  5. 5. Then said
    H559
    Absalom,
    H53
    Call
    H7121
    now Hushai
    H2365
    the Archite
    H757
    also, and let us hear
    H8085
    likewise what he saith.
    H6310
  6. 6. And when Hushai
    H2365
    was come
    H935
    to Absalom,
    H53
    Absalom
    H53
    spake
    H559
    unto him, saying,
    H559
    Ahithophel
    H302
    hath spoken
    H1696
    after this manner:
    H1697
    shall we do
    H6213
    after his saying?
    H1697
    if not; speak
    H1696
    thou.
  7. 7. And Hushai
    H2365
    said
    H559
    unto Absalom,
    H53
    The counsel
    H6098
    that Ahithophel
    H302
    hath given
    H3289
    is not good
    H2896
    at this time.
    H6471
  8. 8. For, said
    H559
    Hushai,
    H2365
    thou knowest
    H3045
    thy father
    H1
    and his men,
    H582
    that they be mighty men,
    H1368
    and they be chafed
    H4751
    in their minds,
    H5315
    as a bear
    H1677
    robbed
    H7909
    of her whelps in the field:
    H7704
    and thy father
    H1
    is a man
    H376
    of war,
    H4421
    and will not lodge
    H3885
    with the people.
    H5971
  9. 9. Behold, he is hid
    H2244
    now in some
    H259
    pit,
    H6354
    or in some
    H259
    other place:
    H4725
    and it will come to pass, when some of them be overthrown
    H5307
    at the first,
    H8462
    that whosoever
    H8085
    heareth
    H8085
    it will say,
    H559
    There is a slaughter
    H4046
    among the people
    H5971
    that follow
    H310
    Absalom.
    H53
  10. 10. And he also that is valiant,
    H2428
    H1121
    whose heart
    H3820
    is as the heart
    H3820
    of a lion,
    H738
    shall utterly
    H4549
    melt:
    H4549
    for all Israel
    H3478
    knoweth
    H3045
    that thy father
    H1
    is a mighty man,
    H1368
    and they which be with him are valiant
    H2428
    men.
    H1121
  11. 11. Therefore I counsel
    H3289
    that all Israel
    H3478
    be generally
    H622
    gathered
    H622
    unto thee, from Dan
    H1835
    even to Beersheba,
    H884
    as the sand
    H2344
    that is by the sea
    H3220
    for multitude;
    H7230
    and that thou go
    H1980
    to battle
    H7128
    in thine own person.
    H6440
  12. 12. So shall we come
    H935
    upon him in some
    H259
    place
    H4725
    where he shall be found,
    H4672
    and we will light
    H5168
    upon him as the dew
    H2919
    falleth
    H5307
    on the ground:
    H127
    and of him and of all the men
    H582
    that are with him there shall not be left
    H3498
    so much as
    H1571
    one.
    H259
  13. 13. Moreover, if
    H518
    he be gotten
    H622
    into a city,
    H5892
    then shall all Israel
    H3478
    bring
    H5375
    ropes
    H2256
    to that city,
    H5892
    and we will draw
    H5498
    it into the river,
    H5158
    until there be not one
    H1571
    small stone
    H6872
    found
    H4672
    there.
  14. 14. And Absalom
    H53
    and all the men
    H376
    of Israel
    H3478
    said,
    H559
    The counsel
    H6098
    of Hushai
    H2365
    the Archite
    H757
    is better
    H2896
    than the counsel
    H6098
    of Ahithophel.
    H302
    For the LORD
    H3068
    had appointed
    H6680
    to defeat
    H6565
    the good
    H2896
    counsel
    H6098
    of Ahithophel,
    H302
    to the intent
    H5668
    that the LORD
    H3068
    might bring
    H935
    evil
    H7451
    upon Absalom.
    H53
  15. 15. Then said
    H559
    Hushai
    H2365
    unto Zadok
    H6659
    and to Abiathar
    H54
    the priests,
    H3548
    Thus and thus did Ahithophel
    H302
    counsel
    H3289
    Absalom
    H53
    and the elders
    H2205
    of Israel;
    H3478
    and thus and thus have I counselled.
    H3289
  16. 16. Now therefore send
    H7971
    quickly,
    H4120
    and tell
    H5046
    David,
    H1732
    saying,
    H559
    Lodge
    H3885
    not this night
    H3915
    in the plains
    H6160
    H5679
    of the wilderness,
    H4057
    but speedily
    H5674
    pass over;
    H5674
    lest the king
    H4428
    be swallowed up,
    H1104
    and all the people
    H5971
    that are with him.
  17. 17. Now Jonathan
    H3083
    and Ahimaaz
    H290
    stayed
    H5975
    by Enrogel;
    H5883
    for they might
    H3201
    not be seen
    H7200
    to come
    H935
    into the city:
    H5892
    and a wench
    H8198
    went
    H1980
    and told
    H5046
    them; and they went
    H3212
    and told
    H5046
    king
    H4428
    David.
    H1732
  18. 18. Nevertheless a lad
    H5288
    saw
    H7200
    them, and told
    H5046
    Absalom:
    H53
    but they went
    H3212
    both
    H8147
    of them away quickly,
    H4120
    and came
    H935
    to a man's
    H376
    house
    H1004
    in Bahurim,
    H980
    which had a well
    H875
    in his court;
    H2691
    whither
    H8033
    they went down.
    H3381
  19. 19. And the woman
    H802
    took
    H3947
    and spread
    H6566
    a covering
    H4539
    over the well's
    H875
    mouth,
    H6440
    and spread
    H7849
    ground corn
    H7383
    thereon; and the thing
    H1697
    was not known.
    H3045
  20. 20. And when Absalom's
    H53
    servants
    H5650
    came
    H935
    to the woman
    H802
    to the house,
    H1004
    they said,
    H559
    Where is Ahimaaz
    H290
    and Jonathan?
    H3083
    And the woman
    H802
    said
    H559
    unto them, They be gone over
    H5674
    the brook
    H4323
    of water.
    H4325
    And when they had sought
    H1245
    and could not find
    H4672
    them, they returned
    H7725
    to Jerusalem.
    H3389
  21. 21. And it came to pass, after
    H310
    they were departed,
    H3212
    that they came up
    H5927
    out of the well,
    H875
    and went
    H3212
    and told
    H5046
    king
    H4428
    David,
    H1732
    and said
    H559
    unto David,
    H1732
    Arise,
    H6965
    and pass quickly
    H4120
    over
    H5674
    the water:
    H4325
    for thus hath Ahithophel
    H302
    counselled
    H3289
    against you.
  22. 22. Then David
    H1732
    arose,
    H6965
    and all the people
    H5971
    that were with him, and they passed over
    H5674
    Jordan:
    H3383
    by the morning
    H1242
    light
    H216
    there lacked
    H5737
    not one
    H259
    of them that was not gone over
    H5674
    Jordan.
    H3383
  23. 23. And when Ahithophel
    H302
    saw
    H7200
    that his counsel
    H6098
    was not followed,
    H6213
    he saddled
    H2280
    his ass,
    H2543
    and arose,
    H6965
    and gat him home
    H3212
    to his house,
    H1004
    to his city,
    H5892
    and put his household
    H1004
    in order,
    H6680
    and hanged
    H2614
    himself, and died,
    H4191
    and was buried
    H6912
    in the sepulchre
    H6913
    of his father.
    H1
  24. 24. Then David
    H1732
    came
    H935
    to Mahanaim.
    H4266
    And Absalom
    H53
    passed over
    H5674
    Jordan,
    H3383
    he and all the men
    H376
    of Israel
    H3478
    with him.
  25. 25. And Absalom
    H53
    made
    H7760
    Amasa
    H6021
    captain of the host
    H6635
    instead of Joab:
    H3097
    which Amasa
    H6021
    was a man's
    H376
    son,
    H1121
    whose name
    H8034
    was Ithra
    H3501
    an Israelite,
    H3481
    that went in
    H935
    to Abigail
    H26
    the daughter
    H1323
    of Nahash,
    H5176
    sister
    H269
    to Zeruiah
    H6870
    Joab's
    H3097
    mother.
    H517
  26. 26. So Israel
    H3478
    and Absalom
    H53
    pitched
    H2583
    in the land
    H776
    of Gilead.
    H1568
  27. 27. And it came to pass, when David
    H1732
    was come
    H935
    to Mahanaim,
    H4266
    that Shobi
    H7629
    the son
    H1121
    of Nahash
    H5176
    of Rabbah
    H7237
    of the children
    H1121
    of Ammon,
    H5983
    and Machir
    H4353
    the son
    H1121
    of Ammiel
    H5988
    of Lodebar,
    H3810
    and Barzillai
    H1271
    the Gileadite
    H1569
    of Rogelim,
    H7274
  28. 28. Brought
    H5066
    beds,
    H4904
    and basons,
    H5592
    and earthen
    H3335
    vessels,
    H3627
    and wheat,
    H2406
    and barley,
    H8184
    and flour,
    H7058
    and parched
    H7039
    corn, and beans,
    H6321
    and lentiles,
    H5742
    and parched
    H7039
    pulse,
  29. 29. And honey,
    H1706
    and butter,
    H2529
    and sheep,
    H6629
    and cheese
    H8194
    of kine,
    H1241
    for David,
    H1732
    and for the people
    H5971
    that were with him, to eat:
    H398
    for they said,
    H559
    The people
    H5971
    is hungry,
    H7457
    and weary,
    H5889
    and thirsty,
    H6771
    in the wilderness.
