14:1 Now Joab [H3097] the son [H1121] of Zeruiah [H6870] perceived [H3045] that the king's [H4428] heart [H3820] [was] toward Absalom [H53] .

14:2 And Joab [H3097] sent [H7971] to Tekoah [H8620] , and fetched [H3947] thence a wise [H2450] woman [H802] , and said [H559] unto her, I pray thee, feign thyself to be a mourner [H56] , and put on [H3847] now mourning [H60] apparel [H899] , and anoint [H5480] not thyself with oil [H8081] , but be as a woman [H802] that had a long [H7227] time [H3117] mourned [H56] for the dead [H4191] :

14:3 And come [H935] to the king [H4428] , and speak [H1696] on this manner [H1697] unto him. So Joab [H3097] put [H7760] the words [H1697] in her mouth [H6310] .

14:4 And when the woman [H802] of Tekoah [H8621] spake [H559] to the king [H4428] , she fell [H5307] on her face [H639] to the ground [H776] , and did obeisance [H7812] , and said [H559] , Help [H3467] , O king [H4428] .(Help: Heb. Save)

14:5 And the king [H4428] said [H559] unto her, What aileth thee? And she answered [H559] , I [am] indeed [H61] a widow [H490] woman [H802] , and mine husband [H376] is dead [H4191] .

14:6 And thy handmaid [H8198] had two [H8147] sons [H1121] , and they two [H8147] strove together [H5327] in the field [H7704] , and [there was] none to part [H5337] them, but the one [H259] smote [H5221] the other [H259] , and slew [H4191] him.(none: Heb. no deliverer between them)

14:7 And, behold, the whole family [H4940] is risen [H6965] against thine handmaid [H8198] , and they said [H559] , Deliver [H5414] him that smote [H5221] his brother [H251] , that we may kill [H4191] him, for the life [H5315] of his brother [H251] whom he slew [H2026] ; and we will destroy [H8045] the heir [H3423] also: and so they shall quench [H3518] my coal [H1513] which is left [H7760] , and shall not leave [H7604] to my husband [H376] [neither] name [H8034] nor remainder [H7611] upon [H6440] the earth [H127] .(upon: Heb. upon the face of the earth)

14:8 And the king [H4428] said [H559] unto the woman [H802] , Go [H3212] to thine house [H1004] , and I will give charge [H6680] concerning thee.

14:9 And the woman [H802] of Tekoah [H8621] said [H559] unto the king [H4428] , My lord [H113] , O king [H4428] , the iniquity [H5771] [be] on me, and on my father's [H1] house [H1004] : and the king [H4428] and his throne [H3678] [be] guiltless [H5355] .

14:10 And the king [H4428] said [H559] , Whosoever saith [H1696] [ought] unto thee, bring [H935] him to me, and he shall not touch [H5060] thee any more [H3254] .

14:11 Then said [H559] she, I pray thee, let the king [H4428] remember [H2142] the LORD [H3068] thy God [H430] , that thou wouldest not suffer the revengers [H1350] of blood [H1818] to destroy [H7843] any more [H7235] , lest they destroy [H8045] my son [H1121] . And he said [H559] , [As] the LORD [H3068] liveth [H2416] , there shall not one hair [H8185] of thy son [H1121] fall [H5307] to the earth [H776] .(that: Heb. that the revenger of blood do not multiply to destroy)

14:12 Then the woman [H802] said [H559] , Let thine handmaid [H8198] , I pray thee, speak [H1696] [one] word [H1697] unto my lord [H113] the king [H4428] . And he said [H559] , Say on [H1696] .

14:13 And the woman [H802] said [H559] , Wherefore then hast thou thought [H2803] such a thing against the people [H5971] of God [H430] ? for the king [H4428] doth speak [H1696] this thing [H1697] as one which is faulty [H818] , in that the king [H4428] doth not fetch home again [H7725] his banished [H5080] .

14:14 For we must needs [H4191] die [H4191] , and [are] as water [H4325] spilt [H5064] on the ground [H776] , which cannot be gathered up again [H622] ; neither doth God [H430] respect [H5375] [any] person [H5315] : yet doth he devise [H2803] means [H4284] , that his banished [H5080] be not expelled [H5080] from him.(neither: or, because God hath not taken away his life, he hath also devised means, etc)

14:15 Now therefore that I am come [H935] to speak [H1696] of this thing [H1697] unto my lord [H113] the king [H4428] , [it is] because the people [H5971] have made me afraid [H3372] : and thy handmaid [H8198] said [H559] , I will now speak [H1696] unto the king [H4428] ; it may be that the king [H4428] will perform [H6213] the request [H1697] of his handmaid [H519] .

14:16 For the king [H4428] will hear [H8085] , to deliver [H5337] his handmaid [H519] out of the hand [H3709] of the man [H376] [that would] destroy [H8045] me and my son [H1121] together [H3162] out of the inheritance [H5159] of God [H430] .

14:17 Then thine handmaid [H8198] said [H559] , The word [H1697] of my lord [H113] the king [H4428] shall now be comfortable [H4496] : for as an angel [H4397] of God [H430] , so [is] my lord [H113] the king [H4428] to discern [H8085] good [H2896] and bad [H7451] : therefore the LORD [H3068] thy God [H430] will be with thee.(comfortable: Heb. for rest)(to discern: Heb. to hear)

14:18 Then the king [H4428] answered [H6030] and said [H559] unto the woman [H802] , Hide [H3582] not from me, I pray thee, the thing [H1697] that I shall ask [H7592] thee. And the woman [H802] said [H559] , Let my lord [H113] the king [H4428] now speak [H1696] .

14:19 And the king [H4428] said [H559] , [Is not] the hand [H3027] of Joab [H3097] with thee in all this? And the woman [H802] answered [H6030] and said [H559] , [As] thy soul [H5315] liveth [H2416] , my lord [H113] the king [H4428] , none [H376] can [H786] turn to the right hand [H3231] or to the left [H8041] from ought that my lord [H113] the king [H4428] hath spoken [H1696] : for thy servant [H5650] Joab [H3097] , he bade [H6680] me, and he put [H7760] all these words [H1697] in the mouth [H6310] of thine handmaid [H8198] :

14:20 To [H5668] fetch about [H5437] this form [H6440] of speech [H1697] hath thy servant [H5650] Joab [H3097] done [H6213] this thing [H1697] : and my lord [H113] [is] wise [H2450] , according to the wisdom [H2451] of an angel [H4397] of God [H430] , to know [H3045] all [things] that [are] in the earth [H776] .

14:21 And the king [H4428] said [H559] unto Joab [H3097] , Behold now, I have done [H6213] this thing [H1697] : go [H3212] therefore, bring [H7725] the young man [H5288] Absalom [H53] again [H7725] .

14:22 And Joab [H3097] fell [H5307] to the ground [H776] on his face [H6440] , and bowed [H7812] himself, and thanked [H1288] the king [H4428] : and Joab [H3097] said [H559] , To day [H3117] thy servant [H5650] knoweth [H3045] that I have found [H4672] grace [H2580] in thy sight [H5869] , my lord [H113] , O king [H4428] , in that the king [H4428] hath fulfilled [H6213] the request [H1697] of his servant [H5650] .(thanked: Heb. blessed)(his servant: or, thy servant)

14:23 So Joab [H3097] arose [H6965] and went [H3212] to Geshur [H1650] , and brought [H935] Absalom [H53] to Jerusalem [H3389] .

14:24 And the king [H4428] said [H559] , Let him turn [H5437] to his own house [H1004] , and let him not see [H7200] my face [H6440] . So Absalom [H53] returned [H5437] to his own house [H1004] , and saw [H7200] not the king's [H4428] face [H6440] .

14:25 But in all Israel [H3478] there was none [H376] to be so much [H3966] praised [H1984] as Absalom [H53] for his beauty [H3303] : from the sole [H3709] of his foot [H7272] even to the crown of his head [H6936] there was no blemish [H3971] in him.(But: Heb. And as Absalom there was not a beautiful man in all Israel to praise greatly)

14:26 And when he polled [H1548] his head [H7218] , (for it was at every year's [H3117] [H3117] end [H7093] that he polled [H1548] [it]: because [the hair] was heavy [H3513] on him, therefore he polled [H1548] it:) he weighed [H8254] the hair [H8181] of his head [H7218] at two hundred [H3967] shekels [H8255] after the king's [H4428] weight [H68] .

14:27 And unto Absalom [H53] there were born [H3205] three [H7969] sons [H1121] , and one [H259] daughter [H1323] , whose name [H8034] [was] Tamar [H8559] : she was a woman [H802] of a fair [H3303] countenance [H4758] .

14:28 So Absalom [H53] dwelt [H3427] two full [H3117] years [H8141] in Jerusalem [H3389] , and saw [H7200] not the king's [H4428] face [H6440] .

14:29 Therefore Absalom [H53] sent [H7971] for Joab [H3097] , to have sent [H7971] him to the king [H4428] ; but he would [H14] not come [H935] to him: and when he sent again [H7971] the second time [H8145] , he would [H14] not come [H935] .

14:30 Therefore he said [H559] unto his servants [H5650] , See [H7200] , Joab's [H3097] field [H2513] is near [H413] mine [H3027] , and he hath barley [H8184] there; go [H3212] and set [H3341] it on fire [H784] . And Absalom's [H53] servants [H5650] set [H3341] the field [H2513] on fire [H784] .(near: Heb. near my place)

14:31 Then Joab [H3097] arose [H6965] , and came [H935] to Absalom [H53] unto [his] house [H1004] , and said [H559] unto him, Wherefore have thy servants [H5650] set [H3341] my field [H2513] on fire [H784] ?

14:32 And Absalom [H53] answered [H559] Joab [H3097] , Behold, I sent [H7971] unto thee, saying [H559] , Come [H935] hither, that I may send [H7971] thee to the king [H4428] , to say [H559] , Wherefore am I come [H935] from Geshur [H1650] ? [it had been] good [H2896] for me [to have been] there still: now therefore let me see [H7200] the king's [H4428] face [H6440] ; and if there be [H3426] [any] iniquity [H5771] in me, let him kill [H4191] me.

14:33 So Joab [H3097] came [H935] to the king [H4428] , and told [H5046] him: and when he had called [H7121] for Absalom [H53] , he came [H935] to the king [H4428] , and bowed [H7812] himself on his face [H639] to the ground [H776] before [H6440] the king [H4428] : and the king [H4428] kissed [H5401] Absalom [H53] .
