16:1 And when David [H1732] was a little [H4592] past [H5674] the top [H7218] [of the hill], behold, Ziba [H6717] the servant [H5288] of Mephibosheth [H4648] met [H7125] him, with a couple [H6776] of asses [H2543] saddled [H2280] , and upon them two hundred [H3967] [loaves] of bread [H3899] , and an hundred [H3967] bunches of raisins [H6778] , and an hundred [H3967] of summer fruits [H7019] , and a bottle [H5035] of wine [H3196] .

16:2 And the king [H4428] said [H559] unto Ziba [H6717] , What meanest thou by these? And Ziba [H6717] said [H559] , The asses [H2543] [be] for the king's [H4428] household [H1004] to ride on [H7392] ; and the bread [H3899] and summer fruit [H7019] for the young men [H5288] to eat [H398] ; and the wine [H3196] , that such as be faint [H3287] in the wilderness [H4057] may drink [H8354] .

16:3 And the king [H4428] said [H559] , And where [is] thy master's [H113] son [H1121] ? And Ziba [H6717] said [H559] unto the king [H4428] , Behold, he abideth [H3427] at Jerusalem [H3389] : for he said [H559] , To day [H3117] shall the house [H1004] of Israel [H3478] restore [H7725] me the kingdom [H4468] of my father [H1] .

16:4 Then said [H559] the king [H4428] to Ziba [H6717] , Behold, thine [are] all that [pertained] unto Mephibosheth [H4648] . And Ziba [H6717] said [H559] , I humbly [H7812] beseech thee [that] I may find [H4672] grace [H2580] in thy sight [H5869] , my lord [H113] , O king [H4428] .(I humbly: Heb. I do obeisance)

16:5 And when king [H4428] David [H1732] came [H935] to Bahurim [H980] , behold, thence came out [H3318] a man [H376] of the family [H4940] of the house [H1004] of Saul [H7586] , whose name [H8034] [was] Shimei [H8096] , the son [H1121] of Gera [H1617] : he came forth [H3318] , and cursed [H7043] still as he came [H3318] .(he came forth: or, he still came forth and cursed)

16:6 And he cast [H5619] stones [H68] at David [H1732] , and at all the servants [H5650] of king [H4428] David [H1732] : and all the people [H5971] and all the mighty men [H1368] [were] on his right hand [H3225] and on his left [H8040] .

16:7 And thus said [H559] Shimei [H8096] when he cursed [H7043] , Come out [H3318] , come out [H3318] , thou bloody [H1818] man [H376] , and thou man [H376] of Belial [H1100] :(bloody: Heb. man of blood)

16:8 The LORD [H3068] hath returned [H7725] upon thee all the blood [H1818] of the house [H1004] of Saul [H7586] , in whose stead thou hast reigned [H4427] ; and the LORD [H3068] hath delivered [H5414] the kingdom [H4410] into the hand [H3027] of Absalom [H53] thy son [H1121] : and, behold, thou [art taken] in thy mischief [H7451] , because thou [art] a bloody [H1818] man [H376] .(behold: Heb. behold thee in thy evil)

16:9 Then said [H559] Abishai [H52] the son [H1121] of Zeruiah [H6870] unto the king [H4428] , Why should this dead [H4191] dog [H3611] curse [H7043] my lord [H113] the king [H4428] ? let me go over [H5674] , I pray thee, and take off [H5493] his head [H7218] .

16:10 And the king [H4428] said [H559] , What have I to do with you, ye sons [H1121] of Zeruiah [H6870] ? so let him curse [H7043] , because the LORD [H3068] hath said [H559] unto him, Curse [H7043] David [H1732] . Who shall then say [H559] , Wherefore hast thou done so [H6213] ?

16:11 And David [H1732] said [H559] to Abishai [H52] , and to all his servants [H5650] , Behold, my son [H1121] , which came forth [H3318] of my bowels [H4578] , seeketh [H1245] my life [H5315] : how much more now [may this] Benjamite [H1145] [do it]? let him alone [H3240] , and let him curse [H7043] ; for the LORD [H3068] hath bidden [H559] him.

16:12 It may be that the LORD [H3068] will look [H7200] on mine affliction [H5869] [H6040] , and that the LORD [H3068] will requite [H7725] me good [H2896] for his cursing [H7045] this day [H3117] .(affliction: or, tears: Heb. eye)

16:13 And as David [H1732] and his men [H582] went [H3212] by the way [H1870] , Shimei [H8096] went along [H1980] on the hill's [H2022] side [H6763] over against [H5980] him, and cursed [H7043] as he went [H1980] , and threw [H5619] stones [H68] at [H5980] him, and cast [H6080] dust [H6083] .(cast: Heb. dusted him with dust)

16:14 And the king [H4428] , and all the people [H5971] that [were] with him, came [H935] weary [H5889] , and refreshed [H5314] themselves there.

16:15 And Absalom [H53] , and all the people [H5971] the men [H376] of Israel [H3478] , came [H935] to Jerusalem [H3389] , and Ahithophel [H302] with him.

16:16 And it came to pass, when Hushai [H2365] the Archite [H757] , David's [H1732] friend [H7463] , was come [H935] unto Absalom [H53] , that Hushai [H2365] said [H559] unto Absalom [H53] , God save [H2421] the king [H4428] , God save [H2421] the king [H4428] .(God: Heb. Let the king live)

16:17 And Absalom [H53] said [H559] to Hushai [H2365] , [Is] this thy kindness [H2617] to thy friend [H7453] ? why wentest [H1980] thou not with thy friend [H7453] ?

16:18 And Hushai [H2365] said [H559] unto Absalom [H53] , Nay; but whom the LORD [H3068] , and this people [H5971] , and all the men [H376] of Israel [H3478] , choose [H977] , his will I be, and with him will I abide [H3427] .

16:19 And again [H8145] , whom should I serve [H5647] ? [should I] not [serve] in the presence [H6440] of his son [H1121] ? as I have served [H5647] in thy father's [H1] presence [H6440] , so will I be in thy presence [H6440] .

16:20 Then said [H559] Absalom [H53] to Ahithophel [H302] , Give [H3051] counsel [H6098] among you what we shall do [H6213] .

16:21 And Ahithophel [H302] said [H559] unto Absalom [H53] , Go in [H935] unto thy father's [H1] concubines [H6370] , which he hath left [H3240] to keep [H8104] the house [H1004] ; and all Israel [H3478] shall hear [H8085] that thou art abhorred [H887] of thy father [H1] : then shall the hands [H3027] of all that [are] with thee be strong [H2388] .

16:22 So they spread [H5186] Absalom [H53] a tent [H168] upon the top of the house [H1406] ; and Absalom [H53] went in [H935] unto his father's [H1] concubines [H6370] in the sight [H5869] of all Israel [H3478] .

16:23 And the counsel [H6098] of Ahithophel [H302] , which he counselled [H3289] in those days [H3117] , [was] as if a man [H376] had enquired [H7592] at the oracle [H1697] of God [H430] : so [was] all the counsel [H6098] of Ahithophel [H302] both with David [H1732] and with Absalom [H53] .(oracle: Heb. word)
