2 Samuel

Chapter 20

  1. 1. And there happened
    H7122
    to be there a man
    H376
    of Belial,
    H1100
    whose name
    H8034
    was Sheba,
    H7652
    the son
    H1121
    of Bichri,
    H1075
    a Benjamite:
    H1145
    and he blew
    H8628
    a trumpet,
    H7782
    and said,
    H559
    We have no part
    H2506
    in David,
    H1732
    neither have we inheritance
    H5159
    in the son
    H1121
    of Jesse:
    H3448
    every
    H376
    man
    H376
    to his tents,
    H168
    O Israel.
    H3478
  2. 2. So every man
    H376
    of Israel
    H3478
    went up
    H5927
    from after
    H310
    David,
    H1732
    and followed
    H310
    Sheba
    H7652
    the son
    H1121
    of Bichri:
    H1075
    but the men
    H376
    of Judah
    H3063
    clave
    H1692
    unto their king,
    H4428
    from Jordan
    H3383
    even to Jerusalem.
    H3389
  3. 3. And David
    H1732
    came
    H935
    to his house
    H1004
    at Jerusalem;
    H3389
    and the king
    H4428
    took
    H3947
    the ten
    H6235
    women
    H802
    his concubines,
    H6370
    whom he had left
    H3240
    to keep
    H8104
    the house,
    H1004
    and put
    H5414
    them in ward,
    H4931
    and fed
    H3557
    them, but went not in
    H935
    unto them. So they were shut up
    H6887
    unto the day
    H3117
    of their death,
    H4191
    living
    H2424
    in widowhood.
    H491
  4. 4. Then said
    H559
    the king
    H4428
    to Amasa,
    H6021
    Assemble
    H2199
    me the men
    H376
    of Judah
    H3063
    within three
    H7969
    days,
    H3117
    and be thou here present.
    H5975
  5. 5. So Amasa
    H6021
    went
    H3212
    to assemble
    H2199
    the men of Judah:
    H3063
    but he tarried longer
    H309
    H3186
    than the set time
    H4150
    which he had appointed
    H3259
    him.
  6. 6. And David
    H1732
    said
    H559
    to Abishai,
    H52
    Now shall Sheba
    H7652
    the son
    H1121
    of Bichri
    H1075
    do us more harm
    H3415
    than did Absalom:
    H53
    take
    H3947
    thou thy lord's
    H113
    servants,
    H5650
    and pursue
    H7291
    after
    H310
    him, lest he get
    H4672
    him fenced
    H1219
    cities,
    H5892
    and escape
    H5337
    us.
    H5869
  7. 7. And there went out
    H3318
    after
    H310
    him Joab's
    H3097
    men,
    H582
    and the Cherethites,
    H3774
    and the Pelethites,
    H6432
    and all the mighty men:
    H1368
    and they went out
    H3318
    of Jerusalem,
    H3389
    to pursue
    H7291
    after
    H310
    Sheba
    H7652
    the son
    H1121
    of Bichri.
    H1075
  8. 8. When they were at the great
    H1419
    stone
    H68
    which is in Gibeon,
    H1391
    Amasa
    H6021
    went
    H935
    before
    H6440
    them. And Joab's
    H3097
    garment
    H4055
    that he had put on
    H3830
    was girded
    H2296
    unto him, and upon it a girdle
    H2289
    with a sword
    H2719
    fastened
    H6775
    upon his loins
    H4975
    in the sheath
    H8593
    thereof; and as he went forth
    H3318
    it fell out.
    H5307
  9. 9. And Joab
    H3097
    said
    H559
    to Amasa,
    H6021
    Art thou in health,
    H7965
    my brother?
    H251
    And Joab
    H3097
    took
    H270
    Amasa
    H6021
    by the beard
    H2206
    with the right
    H3225
    hand
    H3027
    to kiss
    H5401
    him.
  10. 10. But Amasa
    H6021
    took no heed
    H8104
    to the sword
    H2719
    that was in Joab's
    H3097
    hand:
    H3027
    so he smote
    H5221
    him therewith in the fifth
    H2570
    rib, and shed out
    H8210
    his bowels
    H4578
    to the ground,
    H776
    and struck him not again;
    H8138
    and he died.
    H4191
    So Joab
    H3097
    and Abishai
    H52
    his brother
    H251
    pursued
    H7291
    after
    H310
    Sheba
    H7652
    the son
    H1121
    of Bichri.
    H1075
  11. 11. And one
    H376
    of Joab's
    H3097
    men
    H5288
    stood
    H5975
    by him, and said,
    H559
    He
    H4310
    that favoureth
    H2654
    Joab,
    H3097
    and he that is for David,
    H1732
    let him go after
    H310
    Joab.
    H3097
  12. 12. And Amasa
    H6021
    wallowed
    H1556
    in blood
    H1818
    in the midst
    H8432
    of the highway.
    H4546
    And when the man
    H376
    saw
    H7200
    that all the people
    H5971
    stood still,
    H5975
    he removed
    H5437
    Amasa
    H6021
    out of the highway
    H4546
    into the field,
    H7704
    and cast
    H7993
    a cloth
    H899
    upon him, when he saw
    H7200
    that every one that came
    H935
    by him stood still.
    H5975
  13. 13. When he was removed
    H3014
    out of the highway,
    H4546
    all the people
    H376
    went on
    H5674
    after
    H310
    Joab,
    H3097
    to pursue
    H7291
    after
    H310
    Sheba
    H7652
    the son
    H1121
    of Bichri.
    H1075
  14. 14. And he went
    H5674
    through all the tribes
    H7626
    of Israel
    H3478
    unto Abel,
    H59
    and to Bethmaachah,
    H1038
    and all the Berites:
    H1276
    and they were gathered together,
    H6950
    H7035
    and went
    H935
    also after
    H310
    him.
  15. 15. And they came
    H935
    and besieged
    H6696
    him in Abel
    H59
    of Bethmaachah,
    H1038
    and they cast up
    H8210
    a bank
    H5550
    against the city,
    H5892
    and it stood
    H5975
    in the trench:
    H2426
    and all the people
    H5971
    that were with Joab
    H3097
    battered
    H7843
    the wall,
    H2346
    to throw it down.
    H5307
  16. 16. Then cried
    H7121
    a wise
    H2450
    woman
    H802
    out of the city,
    H5892
    Hear,
    H8085
    hear;
    H8085
    say,
    H559
    I pray you, unto Joab,
    H3097
    Come near
    H7126
    hither, that I may speak
    H1696
    with thee.
  17. 17. And when he was come near
    H7126
    unto her, the woman
    H802
    said,
    H559
    Art thou Joab?
    H3097
    And he answered,
    H559
    I am he. Then she said
    H559
    unto him, Hear
    H8085
    the words
    H1697
    of thine handmaid.
    H519
    And he answered,
    H559
    I do hear.
    H8085
  18. 18. Then she spake,
    H559
    saying,
    H559
    They were wont
    H1696
    to speak
    H1696
    in old time,
    H7223
    saying,
    H559
    They shall surely
    H7592
    ask
    H7592
    counsel at Abel:
    H59
    and so they ended
    H8552
    the matter.
  19. 19. I am one of them that are peaceable
    H7999
    and faithful
    H539
    in Israel:
    H3478
    thou seekest
    H1245
    to destroy
    H4191
    a city
    H5892
    and a mother
    H517
    in Israel:
    H3478
    why wilt thou swallow up
    H1104
    the inheritance
    H5159
    of the LORD?
    H3068
  20. 20. And Joab
    H3097
    answered
    H6030
    and said,
    H559
    Far be it,
    H2486
    far be it
    H2486
    from me, that I should swallow up
    H1104
    or destroy.
    H7843
  21. 21. The matter
    H1697
    is not so: but a man
    H376
    of mount
    H2022
    Ephraim,
    H669
    Sheba
    H7652
    the son
    H1121
    of Bichri
    H1075
    by name,
    H8034
    hath lifted up
    H5375
    his hand
    H3027
    against the king,
    H4428
    even against David:
    H1732
    deliver
    H5414
    him only, and I will depart
    H3212
    from the city.
    H5892
    And the woman
    H802
    said
    H559
    unto Joab,
    H3097
    Behold, his head
    H7218
    shall be thrown
    H7993
    to thee over
    H1157
    the wall.
    H2346
  22. 22. Then the woman
    H802
    went
    H935
    unto all the people
    H5971
    in her wisdom.
    H2451
    And they cut off
    H3772
    the head
    H7218
    of Sheba
    H7652
    the son
    H1121
    of Bichri,
    H1075
    and cast
    H7993
    it out to Joab.
    H3097
    And he blew
    H8628
    a trumpet,
    H7782
    and they retired
    H6327
    from the city,
    H5892
    every man
    H376
    to his tent.
    H168
    And Joab
    H3097
    returned
    H7725
    to Jerusalem
    H3389
    unto the king.
    H4428
  23. 23. Now Joab
    H3097
    was over all the host
    H6635
    of Israel:
    H3478
    and Benaiah
    H1141
    the son
    H1121
    of Jehoiada
    H3077
    was over the Cherethites
    H3774
    H3746
    and over the Pelethites:
    H6432
  24. 24. And Adoram
    H151
    was over the tribute:
    H4522
    and Jehoshaphat
    H3092
    the son
    H1121
    of Ahilud
    H286
    was recorder:
    H2142
  25. 25. And Sheva
    H7864
    H7724
    was scribe:
    H5608
    and Zadok
    H6659
    and Abiathar
    H54
    were the priests:
    H3548
  26. 26. And Ira
    H5896
    also the Jairite
    H2972
    was a chief ruler
    H3548
    about David.
