19:1 And it was told [H5046] Joab [H3097] , Behold, the king [H4428] weepeth [H1058] and mourneth [H56] for Absalom [H53] .

19:2 And the victory [H8668] that day [H3117] was [turned] into mourning [H60] unto all the people [H5971] : for the people [H5971] heard [H8085] say [H559] that day [H3117] how the king [H4428] was grieved [H6087] for his son [H1121] .(victory: Heb. salvation, or, deliverance)

19:3 And the people [H5971] gat [H935] them by stealth [H1589] that day [H3117] into the city [H5892] , as people [H5971] being ashamed [H3637] steal away [H1589] when they flee [H5127] in battle [H4421] .

19:4 But the king [H4428] covered [H3813] his face [H6440] , and the king [H4428] cried [H2199] with a loud [H1419] voice [H6963] , O my son [H1121] Absalom [H53] , O Absalom [H53] , my son [H1121] , my son [H1121] !

19:5 And Joab [H3097] came [H935] into the house [H1004] to the king [H4428] , and said [H559] , Thou hast shamed [H3001] this day [H3117] the faces [H6440] of all thy servants [H5650] , which this day [H3117] have saved [H4422] thy life [H5315] , and the lives [H5315] of thy sons [H1121] and of thy daughters [H1323] , and the lives [H5315] of thy wives [H802] , and the lives [H5315] of thy concubines [H6370] ;

19:6 In that thou lovest [H157] thine enemies [H8130] , and hatest [H8130] thy friends [H157] . For thou hast declared [H5046] this day [H3117] , that thou regardest neither princes [H8269] nor servants [H5650] : for this day [H3117] I perceive [H3045] , that if [H3863] Absalom [H53] had lived [H2416] , and all we had died [H4191] this day [H3117] , then it had pleased thee well [H3477] [H5869] .(in: Heb. By loving, etc)(that thou regardest: Heb. that princes or servants are not to thee)

19:7 Now therefore arise [H6965] , go forth [H3318] , and speak [H1696] comfortably [H3820] unto thy servants [H5650] : for I swear [H7650] by the LORD [H3068] , if thou go not forth [H3318] , there will not tarry [H3885] one [H376] with thee this night [H3915] : and that will be worse [H7489] unto thee than all the evil [H7451] that befell [H935] thee from thy youth [H5271] until now.(comfortably: Heb. to the heart of thy servants)

19:8 Then the king [H4428] arose [H6965] , and sat [H3427] in the gate [H8179] . And they told [H5046] unto all the people [H5971] , saying [H559] , Behold, the king [H4428] doth sit [H3427] in the gate [H8179] . And all the people [H5971] came [H935] before [H6440] the king [H4428] : for Israel [H3478] had fled [H5127] every man [H376] to his tent [H168] .

19:9 And all the people [H5971] were at strife [H1777] throughout all the tribes [H7626] of Israel [H3478] , saying [H559] , The king [H4428] saved [H5337] us out of the hand [H3709] of our enemies [H341] , and he delivered [H4422] us out of the hand [H3709] of the Philistines [H6430] ; and now he is fled [H1272] out of the land [H776] for Absalom [H53] .

19:10 And Absalom [H53] , whom we anointed [H4886] over us, is dead [H4191] in battle [H4421] . Now therefore why speak [H2790] ye not a word of bringing [H7725] the king [H4428] back [H7725] ?(speak: Heb. are ye silent?)

19:11 And king [H4428] David [H1732] sent [H7971] to Zadok [H6659] and to Abiathar [H54] the priests [H3548] , saying [H559] , Speak [H1696] unto the elders [H2205] of Judah [H3063] , saying [H559] , Why are ye the last [H314] to bring [H7725] the king [H4428] back [H7725] to his house [H1004] ? seeing the speech [H1697] of all Israel [H3478] is come [H935] to the king [H4428] , [even] to his house [H1004] .

19:12 Ye [are] my brethren [H251] , ye [are] my bones [H6106] and my flesh [H1320] : wherefore then are ye the last [H314] to bring back [H7725] the king [H4428] ?

19:13 And say [H559] ye to Amasa [H6021] , [Art] thou not of my bone [H6106] , and of my flesh [H1320] ? God [H430] do [H6213] so to me, and more [H3254] also, if thou be not captain [H8269] of the host [H6635] before [H6440] me continually [H3117] in the room [H8478] of Joab [H3097] .

19:14 And he bowed [H5186] the heart [H3824] of all the men [H376] of Judah [H3063] , even as [the heart of] one [H259] man [H376] ; so that they sent [H7971] [this word] unto the king [H4428] , Return [H7725] thou, and all thy servants [H5650] .

19:15 So the king [H4428] returned [H7725] , and came [H935] to Jordan [H3383] . And Judah [H3063] came [H935] to Gilgal [H1537] , to go [H3212] to meet [H7125] the king [H4428] , to conduct [H5674] the king [H4428] over [H5674] Jordan [H3383] .

19:16 And Shimei [H8096] the son [H1121] of Gera [H1617] , a Benjamite [H1145] , which [was] of Bahurim [H980] , hasted [H4116] and came down [H3381] with the men [H376] of Judah [H3063] to meet [H7125] king [H4428] David [H1732] .

19:17 And [there were] a thousand [H505] men [H376] of Benjamin [H1145] with him, and Ziba [H6717] the servant [H5288] of the house [H1004] of Saul [H7586] , and his fifteen [H2568] [H6240] sons [H1121] and his twenty [H6242] servants [H5650] with him; and they went over [H6743] Jordan [H3383] before [H6440] the king [H4428] .

19:18 And there went over [H5674] a ferry boat [H5679] to carry over [H5674] the king's [H4428] household [H1004] , and to do [H6213] what he thought [H5869] good [H2896] . And Shimei [H8096] the son [H1121] of Gera [H1617] fell down [H5307] before [H6440] the king [H4428] , as he was come over [H5674] Jordan [H3383] ;(what: Heb. the good in his eyes)

19:19 And said [H559] unto the king [H4428] , Let not my lord [H113] impute [H2803] iniquity [H5771] unto me, neither do thou remember [H2142] that which thy servant [H5650] did perversely [H5753] the day [H3117] that my lord [H113] the king [H4428] went out [H3318] of Jerusalem [H3389] , that the king [H4428] should take [H7760] it to his heart [H3820] .

19:20 For thy servant [H5650] doth know [H3045] that I have sinned [H2398] : therefore, behold, I am come [H935] the first [H7223] this day [H3117] of all the house [H1004] of Joseph [H3130] to go down [H3381] to meet [H7125] my lord [H113] the king [H4428] .

19:21 But Abishai [H52] the son [H1121] of Zeruiah [H6870] answered [H6030] and said [H559] , Shall not Shimei [H8096] be put to death [H4191] for this, because he cursed [H7043] the LORD'S [H3068] anointed [H4899] ?

19:22 And David [H1732] said [H559] , What have I to do with you, ye sons [H1121] of Zeruiah [H6870] , that ye should this day [H3117] be adversaries [H7854] unto me? shall there any man [H376] be put to death [H4191] this day [H3117] in Israel [H3478] ? for do not I know [H3045] that I [am] this day [H3117] king [H4428] over Israel [H3478] ?

19:23 Therefore the king [H4428] said [H559] unto Shimei [H8096] , Thou shalt not die [H4191] . And the king [H4428] sware [H7650] unto him.

19:24 And Mephibosheth [H4648] the son [H1121] of Saul [H7586] came down [H3381] to meet [H7125] the king [H4428] , and had neither [H3808] dressed [H6213] his feet [H7272] , nor trimmed [H6213] his beard [H8222] , nor washed [H3526] his clothes [H899] , from the day [H3117] the king [H4428] departed [H3212] until the day [H3117] he came [H935] [again] in peace [H7965] .

19:25 And it came to pass, when he was come [H935] to Jerusalem [H3389] to meet [H7125] the king [H4428] , that the king [H4428] said [H559] unto him, Wherefore wentest [H1980] not thou with me, Mephibosheth [H4648] ?

19:26 And he answered [H559] , My lord [H113] , O king [H4428] , my servant [H5650] deceived [H7411] me: for thy servant [H5650] said [H559] , I will saddle [H2280] me an ass [H2543] , that I may ride [H7392] thereon, and go [H3212] to the king [H4428] ; because thy servant [H5650] [is] lame [H6455] .

19:27 And he hath slandered [H7270] thy servant [H5650] unto my lord [H113] the king [H4428] ; but my lord [H113] the king [H4428] [is] as an angel [H4397] of God [H430] : do [H6213] therefore [what is] good [H2896] in thine eyes [H5869] .

19:28 For all [of] my father's [H1] house [H1004] were but [H3808] dead [H4194] men [H582] before my lord [H113] the king [H4428] : yet didst thou set [H7896] thy servant [H5650] among them that did eat [H398] at thine own table [H7979] . What right [H6666] therefore have [H3426] I yet to cry [H2199] any more unto the king [H4428] ?(dead: Heb. men of death)

19:29 And the king [H4428] said [H559] unto him, Why speakest [H1696] thou any more of thy matters [H1697] ? I have said [H559] , Thou and Ziba [H6717] divide [H2505] the land [H7704] .

19:30 And Mephibosheth [H4648] said [H559] unto the king [H4428] , Yea, let him take [H3947] all, forasmuch [H310] as [H834] my lord [H113] the king [H4428] is come again [H935] in peace [H7965] unto his own house [H1004] .

19:31 And Barzillai [H1271] the Gileadite [H1569] came down [H3381] from Rogelim [H7274] , and went over [H5674] Jordan [H3383] with the king [H4428] , to conduct [H7971] him over Jordan [H3383] .

19:32 Now Barzillai [H1271] was a very [H3966] aged [H2204] man, [even] fourscore [H8084] years [H8141] old [H1121] : and he had provided the king [H4428] of sustenance [H3557] while he lay [H7871] at Mahanaim [H4266] ; for he [was] a very [H3966] great [H1419] man [H376] .

19:33 And the king [H4428] said [H559] unto Barzillai [H1271] , Come thou over [H5674] with me, and I will feed [H3557] thee with me in Jerusalem [H3389] .

19:34 And Barzillai [H1271] said [H559] unto the king [H4428] , How long [H3117] have I to live [H8141] [H2416] , that I should go up [H5927] with the king [H4428] unto Jerusalem [H3389] ?(How: Heb. How many days are the years of my life)

19:35 I [am] this day [H3117] fourscore [H8084] years [H8141] old [H1121] : [and] can I discern [H3045] between good [H2896] and evil [H7451] ? can thy servant [H5650] taste [H2938] what [H834] I eat [H398] or what [H834] I drink [H8354] ? can I hear [H8085] any more the voice [H6963] of singing men [H7891] and singing women [H7891] ? wherefore then should thy servant [H5650] be yet a burden [H4853] unto my lord [H113] the king [H4428] ?

19:36 Thy servant [H5650] will go [H5674] a little way [H4592] over [H5674] Jordan [H3383] with the king [H4428] : and why should the king [H4428] recompense [H1580] it me with such a reward [H1578] ?

19:37 Let thy servant [H5650] , I pray thee, turn back again [H7725] , that I may die [H4191] in mine own city [H5892] , [and be buried] by the grave [H6913] of my father [H1] and of my mother [H517] . But behold thy servant [H5650] Chimham [H3643] ; let him go over [H5674] with my lord [H113] the king [H4428] ; and do [H6213] to him what shall seem good [H2896] [H5869] unto thee.

19:38 And the king [H4428] answered [H559] , Chimham [H3643] shall go [H5674] over with me, and I will do [H6213] to him that which shall seem good [H2896] [H5869] unto thee: and whatsoever thou shalt require [H977] of me, [that] will I do [H6213] for thee.(require: Heb. choose)

19:39 And all the people [H5971] went over [H5674] Jordan [H3383] . And when the king [H4428] was come over [H5674] , the king [H4428] kissed [H5401] Barzillai [H1271] , and blessed [H1288] him; and he returned [H7725] unto his own place [H4725] .

19:40 Then the king [H4428] went on [H5674] to Gilgal [H1537] , and Chimham [H3643] went on [H5674] with him: and all the people [H5971] of Judah [H3063] conducted [H5674] [H5674] the king [H4428] , and also half [H2677] the people [H5971] of Israel [H3478] .(Chimham: Heb. Chimhan)

19:41 And, behold, all the men [H376] of Israel [H3478] came [H935] to the king [H4428] , and said [H559] unto the king [H4428] , Why have our brethren [H251] the men [H376] of Judah [H3063] stolen thee away [H1589] , and have brought [H5674] the king [H4428] , and his household [H1004] , and all David's [H1732] men [H582] with him, over Jordan [H3383] ?

19:42 And all the men [H376] of Judah [H3063] answered [H6030] the men [H376] of Israel [H3478] , Because the king [H4428] [is] near of kin [H7138] to us: wherefore then be ye angry [H2734] for this matter [H1697] ? have we eaten [H398] at all [H398] of the king's [H4428] [cost]? or hath he given [H5375] us any gift [H5379] ?

19:43 And the men [H376] of Israel [H3478] answered [H6030] the men [H376] of Judah [H3063] , and said [H559] , We have ten [H6235] parts [H3027] in the king [H4428] , and we [H589] have also more [right] in David [H1732] than ye: why then did ye despise [H7043] us, that our advice [H1697] should not be first [H7223] had in bringing back [H7725] our king [H4428] ? And the words [H1697] of the men [H376] of Judah [H3063] were fiercer [H7185] than the words [H1697] of the men [H376] of Israel [H3478] .(despise: Heb. set us at light)
