15:1 And it came to pass after this [H310] , that Absalom [H53] prepared [H6213] him chariots [H4818] and horses [H5483] , and fifty [H2572] men [H376] to run [H7323] before [H6440] him.

15:2 And Absalom [H53] rose up early [H7925] , and stood [H5975] beside [H3027] the way [H1870] of the gate [H8179] : and it was [so], that when any man [H376] that had a controversy [H7379] came [H935] to the king [H4428] for judgment [H4941] , then Absalom [H53] called [H7121] unto him, and said [H559] , Of what [H335] city [H5892] [art] thou? And he said [H559] , Thy servant [H5650] [is] of one [H259] of the tribes [H7626] of Israel [H3478] .(came: Heb. to come)

15:3 And Absalom [H53] said [H559] unto him, See [H7200] , thy matters [H1697] [are] good [H2896] and right [H5228] ; but [there is] no man [deputed] of the king [H4428] to hear [H8085] thee.(there: or, none will hear thee from the king downward)

15:4 Absalom [H53] said [H559] moreover, Oh that I were made [H7760] judge [H8199] in the land [H776] , that every man [H376] which hath any suit [H7379] or cause [H4941] might come [H935] unto me, and I would do him justice [H6663] !

15:5 And it was [so], that when any man [H376] came nigh [H7126] [to him] to do him obeisance [H7812] , he put forth [H7971] his hand [H3027] , and took [H2388] him, and kissed [H5401] him.

15:6 And on this manner [H1697] did [H6213] Absalom [H53] to all Israel [H3478] that came [H935] to the king [H4428] for judgment [H4941] : so Absalom [H53] stole [H1589] the hearts [H3820] of the men [H582] of Israel [H3478] .

15:7 And it came to pass after [H7093] forty [H705] years [H8141] , that Absalom [H53] said [H559] unto the king [H4428] , I pray thee, let me go [H3212] and pay [H7999] my vow [H5088] , which I have vowed [H5087] unto the LORD [H3068] , in Hebron [H2275] .

15:8 For thy servant [H5650] vowed [H5087] a vow [H5088] while I abode [H3427] at Geshur [H1650] in Syria [H758] , saying [H559] , If the LORD [H3068] shall bring me again [H7725] [H7725] indeed to Jerusalem [H3389] , then I will serve [H5647] the LORD [H3068] .

15:9 And the king [H4428] said [H559] unto him, Go [H3212] in peace [H7965] . So he arose [H6965] , and went [H3212] to Hebron [H2275] .

15:10 But Absalom [H53] sent [H7971] spies [H7270] throughout all the tribes [H7626] of Israel [H3478] , saying [H559] , As soon as ye hear [H8085] the sound [H6963] of the trumpet [H7782] , then ye shall say [H559] , Absalom [H53] reigneth [H4427] in Hebron [H2275] .

15:11 And with Absalom [H53] went [H1980] two hundred [H3967] men [H376] out of Jerusalem [H3389] , [that were] called [H7121] ; and they went [H1980] in their simplicity [H8537] , and they knew [H3045] not any thing [H1697] .

15:12 And Absalom [H53] sent [H7971] for Ahithophel [H302] the Gilonite [H1526] , David's [H1732] counsellor [H3289] , from his city [H5892] , [even] from Giloh [H1542] , while he offered [H2076] sacrifices [H2077] . And the conspiracy [H7195] was strong [H533] ; for the people [H5971] increased [H7227] continually [H1980] with Absalom [H53] .

15:13 And there came [H935] a messenger [H5046] to David [H1732] , saying [H559] , The hearts [H3820] of the men [H376] of Israel [H3478] are after [H310] Absalom [H53] .

15:14 And David [H1732] said [H559] unto all his servants [H5650] that [were] with him at Jerusalem [H3389] , Arise [H6965] , and let us flee [H1272] ; for we shall not [else] escape [H6413] from [H6440] Absalom [H53] : make speed [H4116] to depart [H3212] , lest he overtake [H5381] us suddenly [H4116] , and bring [H5080] evil [H7451] upon us, and smite [H5221] the city [H5892] with the edge [H6310] of the sword [H2719] .(bring: Heb. thrust)

15:15 And the king's [H4428] servants [H5650] said [H559] unto the king [H4428] , Behold, thy servants [H5650] [are ready to do] whatsoever my lord [H113] the king [H4428] shall appoint [H977] .(appoint: Heb. choose)

15:16 And the king [H4428] went forth [H3318] , and all his household [H1004] after [H7272] him. And the king [H4428] left [H5800] ten [H6235] women [H802] , [which were] concubines [H6370] , to keep [H8104] the house [H1004] .(after: Heb. at his feet)

15:17 And the king [H4428] went forth [H3318] , and all the people [H5971] after [H7272] him, and tarried [H5975] in a place [H1004] that was far off [H4801] [H1023] .

15:18 And all his servants [H5650] passed on [H5674] beside [H3027] him; and all the Cherethites [H3774] , and all the Pelethites [H6432] , and all the Gittites [H1663] , six [H8337] hundred [H3967] men [H376] which came [H935] after [H7272] him from Gath [H1661] , passed on [H5674] before [H6440] the king [H4428] .

15:19 Then said [H559] the king [H4428] to Ittai [H863] the Gittite [H1663] , Wherefore goest [H3212] thou also with us? return [H7725] to thy place [H4725] , and abide [H3427] with the king [H4428] : for thou [art] a stranger [H5237] , and also an exile [H1540] .

15:20 Whereas thou camest [H935] [but] yesterday [H8543] , should I this day [H3117] make thee go [H3212] up and down [H5128] [H5128] with us? seeing I go [H1980] whither I may, return [H7725] thou, and take back [H7725] thy brethren [H251] : mercy [H2617] and truth [H571] [be] with thee.(go up: Heb. wander in going)

15:21 And Ittai [H863] answered [H6030] the king [H4428] , and said [H559] , [As] the LORD [H3068] liveth [H2416] , and [as] my lord [H113] the king [H4428] liveth [H2416] , surely in what place [H4725] my lord [H113] the king [H4428] shall be, whether in death [H4194] or life [H2416] , even there also will thy servant [H5650] be.

15:22 And David [H1732] said [H559] to Ittai [H863] , Go [H3212] and pass over [H5674] . And Ittai [H863] the Gittite [H1663] passed over [H5674] , and all his men [H582] , and all the little ones [H2945] that [were] with him.

15:23 And all the country [H776] wept [H1058] with a loud [H1419] voice [H6963] , and all the people [H5971] passed over [H5674] : the king [H4428] also himself passed over [H5674] the brook [H5158] Kidron [H6939] , and all the people [H5971] passed over [H5674] , toward [H6440] the way [H1870] of the wilderness [H4057] .(Kidron: Gr. Cedron)

15:24 And lo Zadok [H6659] also, and all the Levites [H3881] [were] with him, bearing [H5375] the ark [H727] of the covenant [H1285] of God [H430] : and they set down [H3332] the ark [H727] of God [H430] ; and Abiathar [H54] went up [H5927] , until all the people [H5971] had done [H8552] passing [H5674] out of the city [H5892] .

15:25 And the king [H4428] said [H559] unto Zadok [H6659] , Carry back [H7725] the ark [H727] of God [H430] into the city [H5892] : if I shall find [H4672] favour [H2580] in the eyes [H5869] of the LORD [H3068] , he will bring me again [H7725] , and shew [H7200] me [both] it, and his habitation [H5116] :

15:26 But if he thus say [H559] , I have no delight [H2654] in thee; behold, [here am] I, let him do [H6213] to me as seemeth [H5869] good [H2896] unto him.

15:27 The king [H4428] said [H559] also unto Zadok [H6659] the priest [H3548] , [Art not] thou a seer [H7200] ? return [H7725] into the city [H5892] in peace [H7965] , and your two [H8147] sons [H1121] with you, Ahimaaz [H290] thy son [H1121] , and Jonathan [H3083] the son [H1121] of Abiathar [H54] .

15:28 See [H7200] , I will tarry [H4102] in the plain [H6160] [H5679] of the wilderness [H4057] , until there come [H935] word [H1697] from you to certify [H5046] me.

15:29 Zadok [H6659] therefore and Abiathar [H54] carried [H7725] the ark [H727] of God [H430] again [H7725] to Jerusalem [H3389] : and they tarried [H3427] there.

15:30 And David [H1732] went up [H5927] by the ascent [H4608] of [mount] Olivet [H2132] , and wept [H1058] as he went up [H5927] , and had his head [H7218] covered [H2645] , and he went [H1980] barefoot [H3182] : and all the people [H5971] that [was] with him covered [H2645] every man [H376] his head [H7218] , and they went up [H5927] , weeping [H1058] as they went up [H5927] .(and wept: Heb. going up and weeping)

15:31 And [one] told [H5046] David [H1732] , saying [H559] , Ahithophel [H302] [is] among the conspirators [H7194] with Absalom [H53] . And David [H1732] said [H559] , O LORD [H3068] , I pray thee, turn the counsel [H6098] of Ahithophel [H302] into foolishness [H5528] .

15:32 And it came to pass, that [when] David [H1732] was come [H935] to the top [H7218] [of the mount], where he worshipped [H7812] God [H430] , behold, Hushai [H2365] the Archite [H757] came to meet [H7125] him with his coat [H3801] rent [H7167] , and earth [H127] upon his head [H7218] :

15:33 Unto whom David [H1732] said [H559] , If thou passest on [H5674] with me, then thou shalt be a burden [H4853] unto me:

15:34 But if thou return [H7725] to the city [H5892] , and say [H559] unto Absalom [H53] , I will be thy servant [H5650] , O king [H4428] ; [as] I [have been] thy father's [H1] servant [H5650] hitherto [H227] , so [will] I now also [be] thy servant [H5650] : then mayest thou for me defeat [H6565] the counsel [H6098] of Ahithophel [H302] .

15:35 And [hast thou] not there with thee Zadok [H6659] and Abiathar [H54] the priests [H3548] ? therefore it shall be, [that] what thing [H1697] soever thou shalt hear [H8085] out of the king's [H4428] house [H1004] , thou shalt tell [H5046] [it] to Zadok [H6659] and Abiathar [H54] the priests [H3548] .

15:36 Behold, [they have] there with them their two [H8147] sons [H1121] , Ahimaaz [H290] Zadok's [H6659] [son], and Jonathan [H3083] Abiathar's [H54] [son]; and by them [H3027] ye shall send [H7971] unto me every thing [H1697] that ye can hear [H8085] .

15:37 So Hushai [H2365] David's [H1732] friend [H7463] came [H935] into the city [H5892] , and Absalom [H53] came [H935] into Jerusalem [H3389] .
