2 Samuel

Chapter 3

  1. 1. Now there was long
    H752
    war
    H4421
    between the house
    H1004
    of Saul
    H7586
    and the house
    H1004
    of David:
    H1732
    but David
    H1732
    waxed
    H1980
    stronger
    H2390
    and stronger,
    H2390
    and the house
    H1004
    of Saul
    H7586
    waxed
    H1980
    weaker
    H1800
    and weaker.
    H1800
  2. 2. And unto David
    H1732
    were sons
    H1121
    born
    H3205
    H3205
    in Hebron:
    H2275
    and his firstborn
    H1060
    was Amnon,
    H550
    of Ahinoam
    H293
    the Jezreelitess;
    H3159
  3. 3. And his second,
    H4932
    Chileab,
    H3609
    of Abigail
    H26
    the wife
    H802
    of Nabal
    H5037
    the Carmelite;
    H3761
    and the third,
    H7992
    Absalom
    H53
    the son
    H1121
    of Maacah
    H4601
    the daughter
    H1323
    of Talmai
    H8526
    king
    H4428
    of Geshur;
    H1650
  4. 4. And the fourth,
    H7243
    Adonijah
    H138
    the son
    H1121
    of Haggith;
    H2294
    and the fifth,
    H2549
    Shephatiah
    H8203
    the son
    H1121
    of Abital;
    H37
  5. 5. And the sixth,
    H8345
    Ithream,
    H3507
    by Eglah
    H5698
    David's
    H1732
    wife.
    H802
    These were born
    H3205
    to David
    H1732
    in Hebron.
    H2275
  6. 6. And it came to pass, while there was war
    H4421
    between the house
    H1004
    of Saul
    H7586
    and the house
    H1004
    of David,
    H1732
    that Abner
    H74
    made himself strong
    H2388
    for the house
    H1004
    of Saul.
    H7586
  7. 7. And Saul
    H7586
    had a concubine,
    H6370
    whose name
    H8034
    was Rizpah,
    H7532
    the daughter
    H1323
    of Aiah:
    H345
    and Ishbosheth said
    H559
    to Abner,
    H74
    Wherefore hast thou gone in
    H935
    unto my father's
    H1
    concubine?
    H6370
  8. 8. Then was Abner
    H74
    very
    H3966
    wroth
    H2734
    for the words
    H1697
    of Ishbosheth,
    H378
    and said,
    H559
    Am I a dog's
    H3611
    head,
    H7218
    which against Judah
    H3063
    do shew
    H6213
    kindness
    H2617
    this day
    H3117
    unto the house
    H1004
    of Saul
    H7586
    thy father,
    H1
    to his brethren,
    H251
    and to his friends,
    H4828
    and have not delivered
    H4672
    thee into the hand
    H3027
    of David,
    H1732
    that thou chargest
    H6485
    me to day
    H3117
    with a fault
    H5771
    concerning this woman?
    H802
  9. 9. So do
    H6213
    God
    H430
    to Abner,
    H74
    and more also,
    H3254
    except, as the LORD
    H3068
    hath sworn
    H7650
    to David,
    H1732
    even so I do
    H6213
    to him;
  10. 10. To translate
    H5674
    the kingdom
    H4467
    from the house
    H1004
    of Saul,
    H7586
    and to set up
    H6965
    the throne
    H3678
    of David
    H1732
    over Israel
    H3478
    and over Judah,
    H3063
    from Dan
    H1835
    even to Beersheba.
    H884
  11. 11. And he could
    H3201
    not answer
    H7725
    Abner
    H74
    a word
    H1697
    again, because he feared
    H3372
    him.
  12. 12. And Abner
    H74
    sent
    H7971
    messengers
    H4397
    to David
    H1732
    on his behalf, saying,
    H559
    Whose is the land?
    H776
    saying
    H559
    also, Make
    H3772
    thy league
    H1285
    with me, and, behold, my hand
    H3027
    shall be with thee, to bring about
    H5437
    all Israel
    H3478
    unto thee.
  13. 13. And he said,
    H559
    Well;
    H2896
    I will make
    H3772
    a league
    H1285
    with thee: but one
    H259
    thing
    H1697
    I require
    H7592
    of thee, that is,
    H559
    Thou shalt not see
    H7200
    my face,
    H6440
    except thou first
    H6440
    bring
    H935
    Michal
    H4324
    Saul's
    H7586
    daughter,
    H1323
    when thou comest
    H935
    to see
    H7200
    my face.
    H6440
  14. 14. And David
    H1732
    sent
    H7971
    messengers
    H4397
    to Ishbosheth
    H378
    Saul's
    H7586
    son,
    H1121
    saying,
    H559
    Deliver
    H5414
    me my wife
    H802
    Michal,
    H4324
    which I espoused
    H781
    to me for an hundred
    H3967
    foreskins
    H6190
    of the Philistines.
    H6430
  15. 15. And Ishbosheth
    H378
    sent,
    H7971
    and took
    H3947
    her from her husband,
    H376
    even from Phaltiel
    H6409
    the son
    H1121
    of Laish.
    H3889
    H3919
  16. 16. And her husband
    H376
    went
    H3212
    with her along weeping
    H1980
    H1058
    behind
    H310
    her to Bahurim.
    H980
    Then said
    H559
    Abner
    H74
    unto him, Go,
    H3212
    return.
    H7725
    And he returned.
    H7725
  17. 17. And Abner
    H74
    had communication
    H1961
    H1697
    with the elders
    H2205
    of Israel,
    H3478
    saying,
    H559
    Ye sought
    H1245
    for David
    H1732
    in times
    H8543
    past
    H8032
    to be king
    H4428
    over you:
  18. 18. Now then do
    H6213
    it: for the LORD
    H3068
    hath spoken
    H559
    of David,
    H1732
    saying,
    H559
    By the hand
    H3027
    of my servant
    H5650
    David
    H1732
    I will save
    H3467
    my people
    H5971
    Israel
    H3478
    out of the hand
    H3027
    of the Philistines,
    H6430
    and out of the hand
    H3027
    of all their enemies.
    H341
  19. 19. And Abner
    H74
    also spake
    H1696
    in the ears
    H241
    of Benjamin:
    H1144
    and Abner
    H74
    went
    H3212
    also to speak
    H1696
    in the ears
    H241
    of David
    H1732
    in Hebron
    H2275
    all that seemed
    H5869
    good
    H2896
    to Israel,
    H3478
    and that seemed good
    H5869
    to the whole house
    H1004
    of Benjamin.
    H1144
  20. 20. So Abner
    H74
    came
    H935
    to David
    H1732
    to Hebron,
    H2275
    and twenty
    H6242
    men
    H582
    with him. And David
    H1732
    made
    H6213
    Abner
    H74
    and the men
    H582
    that were with him a feast.
    H4960
  21. 21. And Abner
    H74
    said
    H559
    unto David,
    H1732
    I will arise
    H6965
    and go,
    H3212
    and will gather
    H6908
    all Israel
    H3478
    unto my lord
    H113
    the king,
    H4428
    that they may make
    H3772
    a league
    H1285
    with thee, and that thou mayest reign
    H4427
    over all that thine heart
    H5315
    desireth.
    H183
    And David
    H1732
    sent
    H7971
    Abner
    H74
    away;
    H7971
    and he went
    H3212
    in peace.
    H7965
  22. 22. And, behold, the servants
    H5650
    of David
    H1732
    and Joab
    H3097
    came
    H935
    from pursuing a troop,
    H1416
    and brought in
    H935
    a great
    H7227
    spoil
    H7998
    with them: but Abner
    H74
    was not with David
    H1732
    in Hebron;
    H2275
    for he had sent him away,
    H7971
    and he was gone
    H3212
    in peace.
    H7965
  23. 23. When Joab
    H3097
    and all the host
    H6635
    that was with him were come,
    H935
    they told
    H5046
    Joab,
    H3097
    saying,
    H559
    Abner
    H74
    the son
    H1121
    of Ner
    H5369
    came
    H935
    to the king,
    H4428
    and he hath sent him away,
    H7971
    and he is gone
    H3212
    in peace.
    H7965
  24. 24. Then Joab
    H3097
    came
    H935
    to the king,
    H4428
    and said,
    H559
    What hast thou done?
    H6213
    behold, Abner
    H74
    came
    H935
    unto thee; why is it that thou hast sent him away,
    H7971
    and he is quite
    H1980
    gone?
    H3212
  25. 25. Thou knowest
    H3045
    Abner
    H74
    the son
    H1121
    of Ner,
    H5369
    that he came
    H935
    to deceive
    H6601
    thee, and to know
    H3045
    thy going out
    H4161
    and thy coming in,
    H4126
    H3996
    and to know
    H3045
    all that thou doest.
    H6213
  26. 26. And when Joab
    H3097
    was come out
    H3318
    from David,
    H1732
    he sent
    H7971
    messengers
    H4397
    after
    H310
    Abner,
    H74
    which brought him again
    H7725
    from the well
    H953
    of Sirah:
    H5626
    but David
    H1732
    knew
    H3045
    it not.
  27. 27. And when Abner
    H74
    was returned
    H7725
    to Hebron,
    H2275
    Joab
    H3097
    took him aside
    H5186
    in
    H8432
    the
    H413
    gate
    H8179
    to speak
    H1696
    with him quietly,
    H7987
    and smote
    H5221
    him there under the fifth
    H2570
    rib, that he died,
    H4191
    for the blood
    H1818
    of Asahel
    H6214
    his brother.
    H251
  28. 28. And afterward
    H310
    when David
    H1732
    heard
    H8085
    it, he said,
    H559
    I and my kingdom
    H4467
    are guiltless
    H5355
    before the LORD
    H3068
    for
    H5704
    ever
    H5769
    from the blood
    H1818
    of Abner
    H74
    the son
    H1121
    of Ner:
    H5369
  29. 29. Let it rest
    H2342
    on the head
    H7218
    of Joab,
    H3097
    and on all his father's
    H1
    house;
    H1004
    and let there not fail
    H3772
    from the house
    H1004
    of Joab
    H3097
    one that hath an issue,
    H2100
    or that is a leper,
    H6879
    or that leaneth
    H2388
    on a staff,
    H6418
    or that falleth
    H5307
    on the sword,
    H2719
    or that lacketh
    H2638
    bread.
    H3899
  30. 30. So Joab
    H3097
    and Abishai
    H52
    his brother
    H251
    slew
    H2026
    Abner,
    H74
    because he had slain
    H4191
    their brother
    H251
    Asahel
    H6214
    at Gibeon
    H1391
    in the battle.
    H4421
  31. 31. And David
    H1732
    said
    H559
    to Joab,
    H3097
    and to all the people
    H5971
    that were with him, Rend
    H7167
    your clothes,
    H899
    and gird
    H2296
    you with sackcloth,
    H8242
    and mourn
    H5594
    before
    H6440
    Abner.
    H74
    And king
    H4428
    David
    H1732
    himself followed
    H1980
    H310
    the bier.
    H4296
  32. 32. And they buried
    H6912
    Abner
    H74
    in Hebron:
    H2275
    and the king
    H4428
    lifted up
    H5375
    his voice,
    H6963
    and wept
    H1058
    at the grave
    H6913
    of Abner;
    H74
    and all the people
    H5971
    wept.
    H1058
  33. 33. And the king
    H4428
    lamented
    H6969
    over Abner,
    H74
    and said,
    H559
    Died
    H4191
    Abner
    H74
    as a fool
    H5036
    dieth?
    H4194
  34. 34. Thy hands
    H3027
    were not bound,
    H631
    nor thy feet
    H7272
    put
    H5066
    into fetters:
    H5178
    as a man falleth
    H5307
    before
    H6440
    wicked
    H5766
    men,
    H1121
    so fellest
    H5307
    thou. And all the people
    H5971
    wept
    H1058
    again
    H3254
    over him.
  35. 35. And when all
    H3605
    the people
    H5971
    came
    H935
    to cause
    H1262
    David
    H1732
    to eat
    H1262
    meat
    H3899
    while it was yet
    H5750
    day,
    H3117
    David
    H1732
    sware,
    H7650
    saying,
    H559
    So do
    H6213
    God
    H430
    to me, and more also,
    H3254
    if I taste
    H2938
    bread,
    H3899
    or ought
    H3972
    else, till
    H6440
    the sun
    H8121
    be down.
    H935
  36. 36. And all the people
    H5971
    took notice
    H5234
    of it, and it pleased
    H3190
    H5869
    them: as whatsoever the king
    H4428
