Would I had died instead of you, O Absalom, my son, my son!”. 29And the king said, “Is it well with the young man Absalom?” Ahimaaz answered, “When Joab sent the king’s servant, your servant, I saw a great commotion, but I do not know what it was.” 26 And Israel and Absalom encamped in the land of Gilead. And the king took gthe ten concubines whom he had left to care for the house and put them in a house under guard and provided for them, but did not go in to them. Now therefore why do you say nothing about bringing the king back?”. 19 Then Ahimaaz the son of Zadok said, d“Let me run and carry news to the king that ethe Lord has delivered him from the hand of his enemies.” 28 brought beds, basins, and earthen vessels, wheat, barley, flour, parched grain, beans and lentils,7 What further right have I, then, to cry to the king?” I will come upon him while he is weary and discouraged and throw him into a panic, and all the people who are with him will flee. But you are worth ten thousand of us. 23 “Come what may,” he said, “I will run.” So he said to him, “Run.” Then Ahimaaz ran by the way of fthe plain, and outran the Cushite. 7 And the men of Israel were defeated there by the servants of David, and the loss there was great on that day, twenty thousand men. and we have no inheritance in the son of Jesse; 2 So all the men of Israel withdrew from David and followed Sheba the son of Bichri. 18:1 Then David mustered the men who were with him and set over them commanders of thousands and commanders of hundreds. 2 And David sent out the army, one third under the command of Joab, one third under the command of Abishai the son of Zeruiah, Joab's brother, and one third under the command of s Ittai the Gittite. 2 Samuel 21:22 These four were descended from the giants in Gath, and they fell by the hand of David and by the hand of his servants. 11 In the spring of the year, the time when kings go out to battle, David sent Joab, and his servants with him, and all Israel. 2 And David sent out the army, one third under the command of Joab, one third under the command of Abishai the son of Zeruiah, Joab’s brother, and one third under the command of sIttai the Gittite. 37 Please let your servant return, that I may die in my own city near the grave of my father and my mother. 30 And Mephibosheth said to the king, “Oh, let him take it all, since my lord the king has come safely home.”. 19 eAnd the woman took and spread a covering over the well’s mouth and scattered grain on it, and nothing was known of it. And when he came to David, he fell to the ground and paid homage. 9 And all the people were arguing throughout all the tribes of Israel, saying, u“The king delivered us from the hand of our enemies and vsaved us from the hand of the Philistines, and now whe has fled out of the land from Absalom. 19 Then Ahimaaz the son of Zadok said, [d] 2 Samuel 15:36 “Let me run and carry news to the king that [e] 2 Samuel 18:31 the Lord has delivered him from the hand of his enemies.” 20 And Joab said to him, “You are not to carry news today. 8 The battle spread over the face of all the country, and the forest devoured more people that day than the sword. 2 And he defeated Moab and he measured them with a line, making them lie down on the ground. If half of us die, they will not care about us. 19 And Asahel pursued Abner , and as he went , he turned neither to the right hand nor to the left from following Abner . Now Asahel was as swift of foot as a wild gazelle. And as he went, he said, o“O my son Absalom, my son, my son Absalom! 4 The king pcovered his face, and the king cried with a loud voice, q“O my son Absalom, O Absalom, my son, my son!” 20And Joab said to him, “You are not to carry news today. 9 Then Abishai the son of Zeruiah said to the king, “Why should this adead dog bcurse my lord the king? 18Now Absalom in his lifetime had taken and set up for himself the pillar that is in the King’s Valley, for he said, “I have no son to keep my name in remembrance.” He called the pillar after his own name, and it is called Absalom’s monumentc to this day. 19 and said to the king, f“Let not my lord hold me guilty or remember how your servant gdid wrong on the day my lord the king left Jerusalem. 26The watchman saw another man running. If half of us die, they will not care about us. 5 Then Absalom said, “Call sHushai the Archite also, and let us hear what he has to say.” 2 Samuel depicts David as a true (though imperfect) representative of the ideal theocratic king. 3 tBut the men said, “You shall not go out. 39 Then all the people went over the Jordan, and the king went over. 12 So we shall come upon him in some place where he is to be found, and we shall light upon him as the dew falls on the ground, and of him and all the men with him not one will be left. But you are worth ten thousand of us. 7 And Shimei said as he xcursed, “Get out, get out, you man of blood, you worthless man! For mthe Lord has delivered you this day from the hand of all who rose up against you.” Long live the king!” 24 And mMephibosheth the son of Saul came down to meet the king. He had neither taken care of his feet nor trimmed his beard nor washed his clothes, from the day the king departed until the day he came back in safety.

He hset his house in order and ihanged himself, and he died and was buried in the tomb of his father. 27The watchman said, “I think the running of the first is like the running of Ahimaaz the son of Zadok.” And the king said, “He is a good man and comes with good news.”.

I would have been glad to give you ten pieces of silver and a belt.” 1 Moreover, Ahithophel said to Absalom, “Let me choose twelve thousand men, and I will arise and pursue David tonight. 30And the king said, “Turn aside and stand here.” So he turned aside and stood still. 20 And what more can David say to you? 36 your servant will go a little beyond # ch, “ have!
