Chapter 2

  1. 1. And it came to pass after this,
    H310
    that David
    H1732
    enquired
    H7592
    of the LORD,
    H3068
    saying,
    H559
    Shall I go up
    H5927
    into any
    H259
    of the cities
    H5892
    of Judah?
    H3063
    And the LORD
    H3068
    said
    H559
    unto him, Go up.
    H5927
    And David
    H1732
    said,
    H559
    Whither shall I go up?
    H5927
    And he said,
    H559
    Unto Hebron.
    H2275
  2. 2. So David
    H1732
    went up
    H5927
    thither, and his two
    H8147
    wives
    H802
    also, Ahinoam
    H293
    the Jezreelitess,
    H3159
    and Abigail
    H26
    Nabal's
    H5037
    wife
    H802
    the Carmelite.
    H3761
  3. 3. And his men
    H582
    that were with him did David
    H1732
    bring up,
    H5927
    every man
    H376
    with his household:
    H1004
    and they dwelt
    H3427
    in the cities
    H5892
    of Hebron.
    H2275
  4. 4. And the men
    H582
    of Judah
    H3063
    came,
    H935
    and there they anointed
    H4886
    David
    H1732
    king
    H4428
    over the house
    H1004
    of Judah.
    H3063
    And they told
    H5046
    David,
    H1732
    saying,
    H559
    That the men
    H582
    of Jabeshgilead
    H1568
    were
    H3003
    they
    that buried
    H6912
    Saul.
    H7586
  5. 5. And David
    H1732
    sent
    H7971
    messengers
    H4397
    unto the men
    H582
    of Jabeshgilead,
    H1568
    H3003
    and said
    H559
    unto them, Blessed
    H1288
    be ye of the LORD,
    H3068
    that ye have shewed
    H6213
    this kindness
    H2617
    unto your lord,
    H113
    even unto Saul,
    H7586
    and have buried
    H6912
    him.
  6. 6. And now the LORD
    H3068
    shew
    H6213
    kindness
    H2617
    and truth
    H571
    unto you: and I also will requite
    H6213
    you this kindness,
    H2896
    because ye have done
    H6213
    this thing.
    H1697
  7. 7. Therefore now let your hands
    H3027
    be strengthened,
    H2388
    and be ye valiant:
    H2428
    H1121
    for your master
    H113
    Saul
    H7586
    is dead,
    H4191
    and also the house
    H1004
    of Judah
    H3063
    have anointed
    H4886
    me king
    H4428
    over them.
  8. 8. But Abner
    H74
    the son
    H1121
    of Ner,
    H5369
    captain
    H8269
    of Saul's
    H7586
    host,
    H6635
    took
    H3947
    Ishbosheth
    H378
    the son
    H1121
    of Saul,
    H7586
    and brought him over
    H5674
    to Mahanaim;
    H4266
  9. 9. And made him king
    H4427
    over Gilead,
    H1568
    and over the Ashurites,
    H805
    and over Jezreel,
    H3157
    and over Ephraim,
    H669
    and over Benjamin,
    H1144
    and over all Israel.
    H3478
  10. 10. Ishbosheth
    H378
    Saul's
    H7586
    son
    H1121
    was forty
    H705
    years
    H8141
    old
    H1121
    when he began to reign
    H4427
    over Israel,
    H3478
    and reigned
    H4427
    two
    H8147
    years.
    H8141
    But the house
    H1004
    of Judah
    H3063
    followed
    H310
    David.
    H1732
  11. 11. And the time
    H3117
    that
    H4557
    David
    H1732
    was king
    H4428
    in Hebron
    H2275
    over the house
    H1004
    of Judah
    H3063
    was seven
    H7651
    years
    H8141
    and six
    H8337
    months.
    H2320
  12. 12. And Abner
    H74
    the son
    H1121
    of Ner,
    H5369
    and the servants
    H5650
    of Ishbosheth
    H378
    the son
    H1121
    of Saul,
    H7586
    went out
    H3318
    from Mahanaim
    H4266
    to Gibeon.
    H1391
  13. 13. And Joab
    H3097
    the son
    H1121
    of Zeruiah,
    H6870
    and the servants
    H5650
    of David,
    H1732
    went out,
    H3318
    and met
    H6298
    together
    H3162
    by the pool
    H1295
    of Gibeon:
    H1391
    and they sat down,
    H3427
    the one on the one side of the pool,
    H1295
    and the other on the other side of the pool.
    H1295
  14. 14. And Abner
    H74
    said
    H559
    to Joab,
    H3097
    Let the young men
    H5288
    now arise,
    H6965
    and play
    H7832
    before
    H6440
    us. And Joab
    H3097
    said,
    H559
    Let them arise.
    H6965
  15. 15. Then there arose
    H6965
    and went over
    H5674
    by number
    H4557
    twelve
    H6240
    of
    H8147
    Benjamin,
    H1144
    which pertained to Ishbosheth
    H378
    the son
    H1121
    of Saul,
    H7586
    and twelve
    H6240
    of
    H8147
    the servants
    H5650
    of David.
    H1732
  16. 16. And they caught
    H2388
    every one
    H376
    his fellow
    H7453
    by the head,
    H7218
    and thrust his sword
    H2719
    in his fellow's
    H7453
    side;
    H6654
    so they fell down
    H5307
    together:
    H3162
    wherefore that place
    H4725
    was called
    H7121
    Helkathhazzurim,
    H2521
    which is in Gibeon.
    H1391
  17. 17. And there was a very
    H3966
    sore
    H7186
    battle
    H4421
    that day;
    H3117
    and Abner
    H74
    was beaten,
    H5062
    and the men
    H582
    of Israel,
    H3478
    before
    H6440
    the servants
    H5650
    of David.
    H1732
  18. 18. And there were three
    H7969
    sons
    H1121
    of Zeruiah
    H6870
    there, Joab,
    H3097
    and Abishai,
    H52
    and Asahel:
    H6214
    and Asahel
    H6214
    was as light
    H7031
    of foot
    H7272
    as a
    H259
    wild
    H7704
    roe.
    H6643
  19. 19. And Asahel
    H6214
    pursued
    H7291
    after
    H310
    Abner;
    H74
    and in going
    H3212
    he turned
    H5186
    not to the right hand
    H3225
    nor to the left
    H8040
    from following
    H310
    Abner.
    H74
  20. 20. Then Abner
    H74
    looked
    H6437
    behind
    H310
    him, and said,
    H559
    Art thou Asahel?
    H6214
    And he answered,
    H559
    I am.
  21. 21. And Abner
    H74
    said
    H559
    to him, Turn thee aside
    H5186
    to thy right hand
    H3225
    or to thy left,
    H8040
    and lay thee hold
    H270
    on one
    H259
    of the young men,
    H5288
    and take
    H3947
    thee his armour.
    H2488
    But Asahel
    H6214
    would
    H14
    not turn aside
    H5493
    from following
    H310
    of him.
  22. 22. And Abner
    H74
    said
    H559
    again
    H3254
    to Asahel,
    H6214
    Turn thee aside
    H5493
    from following
    H310
    me: wherefore should I smite
    H5221
    thee to the ground?
    H776
    how then should I hold up
    H5375
    my face
    H6440
    to Joab
    H3097
    thy brother?
    H251
  23. 23. Howbeit he refused
    H3985
    to turn aside:
    H5493
    wherefore Abner
    H74
    with the hinder end
    H310
    of the spear
    H2595
    smote
    H5221
    him under
    H413
    the fifth
    H2570
    rib, that the spear
    H2595
    came out
    H3318
    behind
    H310
    him; and he fell down
    H5307
    there, and died
    H4191
    in the same place:
    H8478
    and it came to pass, that as many as came
    H935
    to the place
    H4725
    where Asahel
    H6214
    fell down
    H5307
    and died
    H4191
    stood still.
    H5975
  24. 24. Joab
    H3097
    also and Abishai
    H52
    pursued
    H7291
    after
    H310
    Abner:
    H74
    and the sun
    H8121
    went down
    H935
    when they were come
    H935
    to the hill
    H1389
    of Ammah,
    H522
    that lieth before
    H6440
    Giah
    H1520
    by the way
    H1870
    of the wilderness
    H4057
    of Gibeon.
    H1391
  25. 25. And the children
    H1121
    of Benjamin
    H1144
    gathered themselves together
    H6908
    after
    H310
    Abner,
    H74
    and became one
    H259
    troop,
    H92
    and stood
    H5975
    on the top
    H7218
    of an hill.
    H1389
  26. 26. Then Abner
    H74
    called
    H7121
    to Joab,
    H3097
    and said,
    H559
    Shall the sword
    H2719
    devour
    H398
    for ever?
    H5331
    knowest
    H3045
    thou not that it will be bitterness
    H4751
    in the latter end?
    H314
    how long shall it be then, ere thou bid
    H559
    the people
    H5971
    return
    H7725
    from following
    H310
    their brethren?
    H251
  27. 27. And Joab
    H3097
    said,
    H559
    As God
    H430
    liveth,
    H2416
    unless
    H3884
    thou hadst spoken,
    H1696
    surely then in the morning
    H1242
    the people
    H5971
    had gone up
    H5927
    every one
    H376
    from following
    H310
    his brother.
    H251
  28. 28. So Joab
    H3097
    blew
    H8628
    a trumpet,
    H7782
    and all the people
    H5971
    stood still,
    H5975
    and pursued
    H7291
    after
    H310
    Israel
    H3478
    no more, neither fought
    H3898
    they any more.
    H3254
  29. 29. And Abner
    H74
    and his men
    H582
    walked
    H1980
    all that night
    H3915
    through the plain,
    H6160
    and passed over
    H5674
    Jordan,
    H3383
    and went through
    H3212
    all Bithron,
    H1338
    and they came
    H935
    to Mahanaim.
    H4266
  30. 30. And Joab
    H3097
    returned
    H7725
    from following
    H310
    Abner:
    H74
    and when he had gathered
    H6908
    all the people
    H5971
    together,
    H6908
    there lacked
    H6485
    of David's
    H1732
    servants
    H5650
    nineteen
    H6240
    H8672
    men
    H376
    and Asahel.
    H6214
  31. 31. But the servants
    H5650
    of David
    H1732
    had smitten
    H5221
    of Benjamin,
    H1144
    and of Abner's
    H74
    men,
    H582
    so that three
    H7969
    hundred
    H3967
    and threescore
    H8346
    men
    H376
    died.
    H4191
  32. 32. And they took up
    H5375
    Asahel,
    H6214
    and buried
    H6912
    him in the sepulchre
    H6913
    of his father,
    H1
    which was in Bethlehem.
    H1035
    And Joab
    H3097
    and his men
    H582
    went
    H3212
    all night,
    H3915
    and they came to Hebron
    H2275
    at break of day.
