2:1 And it came to pass after this [H310] , that David [H1732] enquired [H7592] of the LORD [H3068] , saying [H559] , Shall I go up [H5927] into any [H259] of the cities [H5892] of Judah [H3063] ? And the LORD [H3068] said [H559] unto him, Go up [H5927] . And David [H1732] said [H559] , Whither shall I go up [H5927] ? And he said [H559] , Unto Hebron [H2275] .

2:2 So David [H1732] went up [H5927] thither, and his two [H8147] wives [H802] also, Ahinoam [H293] the Jezreelitess [H3159] , and Abigail [H26] Nabal's [H5037] wife [H802] the Carmelite [H3761] .

2:3 And his men [H582] that [were] with him did David [H1732] bring up [H5927] , every man [H376] with his household [H1004] : and they dwelt [H3427] in the cities [H5892] of Hebron [H2275] .

2:4 And the men [H582] of Judah [H3063] came [H935] , and there they anointed [H4886] David [H1732] king [H4428] over the house [H1004] of Judah [H3063] . And they told [H5046] David [H1732] , saying [H559] , [That] the men [H582] of Jabeshgilead [H3003] [H1568] [were they] that buried [H6912] Saul [H7586] .

2:5 And David [H1732] sent [H7971] messengers [H4397] unto the men [H582] of Jabeshgilead [H3003] [H1568] , and said [H559] unto them, Blessed [H1288] [be] ye of the LORD [H3068] , that ye have shewed [H6213] this kindness [H2617] unto your lord [H113] , [even] unto Saul [H7586] , and have buried [H6912] him.

2:6 And now the LORD [H3068] shew [H6213] kindness [H2617] and truth [H571] unto you: and I also will requite [H6213] you this kindness [H2896] , because ye have done [H6213] this thing [H1697] .

2:7 Therefore now let your hands [H3027] be strengthened [H2388] , and be ye valiant [H1121] [H2428] : for your master [H113] Saul [H7586] is dead [H4191] , and also the house [H1004] of Judah [H3063] have anointed [H4886] me king [H4428] over them.(be ye: Heb. be ye the sons of valour)

2:8 But Abner [H74] the son [H1121] of Ner [H5369] , captain [H8269] of Saul's [H7586] host [H6635] , took [H3947] Ishbosheth [H378] the son [H1121] of Saul [H7586] , and brought him over [H5674] to Mahanaim [H4266] ;(Saul's host: Heb. the host which was Saul's)(Ishbosheth: or, Eshbaal)

2:9 And made him king [H4427] over Gilead [H1568] , and over the Ashurites [H805] , and over Jezreel [H3157] , and over Ephraim [H669] , and over Benjamin [H1144] , and over all Israel [H3478] .

2:10 Ishbosheth [H378] Saul's [H7586] son [H1121] [was] forty [H705] years [H8141] old [H1121] when he began to reign [H4427] over Israel [H3478] , and reigned [H4427] two [H8147] years [H8141] . But the house [H1004] of Judah [H3063] followed [H310] David [H1732] .

2:11 And the time [H4557] [H3117] that David [H1732] was king [H4428] in Hebron [H2275] over the house [H1004] of Judah [H3063] was seven [H7651] years [H8141] and six [H8337] months [H2320] .(time: Heb. number of days)

2:12 And Abner [H74] the son [H1121] of Ner [H5369] , and the servants [H5650] of Ishbosheth [H378] the son [H1121] of Saul [H7586] , went out [H3318] from Mahanaim [H4266] to Gibeon [H1391] .

2:13 And Joab [H3097] the son [H1121] of Zeruiah [H6870] , and the servants [H5650] of David [H1732] , went out [H3318] , and met [H6298] together [H3162] by the pool [H1295] of Gibeon [H1391] : and they sat down [H3427] , the one on the one side of the pool [H1295] , and the other on the other side of the pool [H1295] .(together: Heb. them together)

2:14 And Abner [H74] said [H559] to Joab [H3097] , Let the young men [H5288] now arise [H6965] , and play [H7832] before [H6440] us. And Joab [H3097] said [H559] , Let them arise [H6965] .

2:15 Then there arose [H6965] and went over [H5674] by number [H4557] twelve [H8147] [H6240] of Benjamin [H1144] , which [pertained] to Ishbosheth [H378] the son [H1121] of Saul [H7586] , and twelve [H8147] [H6240] of the servants [H5650] of David [H1732] .

2:16 And they caught [H2388] every one [H376] his fellow [H7453] by the head [H7218] , and [thrust] his sword [H2719] in his fellow's [H7453] side [H6654] ; so they fell down [H5307] together [H3162] : wherefore that place [H4725] was called [H7121] Helkathhazzurim [H2521] , which [is] in Gibeon [H1391] .(Helkathhazzurim: that is, The field of strong men)

2:17 And there was a very [H3966] sore [H7186] battle [H4421] that day [H3117] ; and Abner [H74] was beaten [H5062] , and the men [H582] of Israel [H3478] , before [H6440] the servants [H5650] of David [H1732] .

2:18 And there were three [H7969] sons [H1121] of Zeruiah [H6870] there, Joab [H3097] , and Abishai [H52] , and Asahel [H6214] : and Asahel [H6214] [was as] light [H7031] of foot [H7272] as a [H259] wild [H7704] roe [H6643] .(of foot: Heb. of his feet)(as a wild: Heb. as one of the roes that is in the field)

2:19 And Asahel [H6214] pursued [H7291] after [H310] Abner [H74] ; and in going [H3212] he turned [H5186] not to the right hand [H3225] nor to the left [H8040] from following [H310] Abner [H74] .(from: Heb. from after Abner)

2:20 Then Abner [H74] looked [H6437] behind [H310] him, and said [H559] , [Art] thou Asahel [H6214] ? And he answered [H559] , I [am].

2:21 And Abner [H74] said [H559] to him, Turn thee aside [H5186] to thy right hand [H3225] or to thy left [H8040] , and lay thee hold [H270] on one [H259] of the young men [H5288] , and take [H3947] thee his armour [H2488] . But Asahel [H6214] would [H14] not turn aside [H5493] from following [H310] of him.(armour: or, spoil)

2:22 And Abner [H74] said [H559] again [H3254] to Asahel [H6214] , Turn thee aside [H5493] from following [H310] me: wherefore should I smite [H5221] thee to the ground [H776] ? how then should I hold up [H5375] my face [H6440] to Joab [H3097] thy brother [H251] ?

2:23 Howbeit he refused [H3985] to turn aside [H5493] : wherefore Abner [H74] with the hinder end [H310] of the spear [H2595] smote [H5221] him under [H413] the fifth [H2570] [rib], that the spear [H2595] came out [H3318] behind [H310] him; and he fell down [H5307] there, and died [H4191] in the same place [H8478] : and it came to pass, [that] as many as came [H935] to the place [H4725] where Asahel [H6214] fell down [H5307] and died [H4191] stood still [H5975] .

2:24 Joab [H3097] also and Abishai [H52] pursued [H7291] after [H310] Abner [H74] : and the sun [H8121] went down [H935] when they were come [H935] to the hill [H1389] of Ammah [H522] , that [lieth] before [H6440] Giah [H1520] by the way [H1870] of the wilderness [H4057] of Gibeon [H1391] .

2:25 And the children [H1121] of Benjamin [H1144] gathered themselves together [H6908] after [H310] Abner [H74] , and became one [H259] troop [H92] , and stood [H5975] on the top [H7218] of an hill [H1389] .

2:26 Then Abner [H74] called [H7121] to Joab [H3097] , and said [H559] , Shall the sword [H2719] devour [H398] for ever [H5331] ? knowest [H3045] thou not that it will be bitterness [H4751] in the latter end [H314] ? how long shall it be then, ere thou bid [H559] the people [H5971] return [H7725] from following [H310] their brethren [H251] ?

2:27 And Joab [H3097] said [H559] , [As] God [H430] liveth [H2416] , unless [H3884] thou hadst spoken [H1696] , surely then in the morning [H1242] the people [H5971] had gone up [H5927] every one [H376] from following [H310] his brother [H251] .(in the: Heb. from the morning)(gone: or, gone away)

2:28 So Joab [H3097] blew [H8628] a trumpet [H7782] , and all the people [H5971] stood still [H5975] , and pursued [H7291] after [H310] Israel [H3478] no more, neither fought [H3898] they any more [H3254] .

2:29 And Abner [H74] and his men [H582] walked [H1980] all that night [H3915] through the plain [H6160] , and passed over [H5674] Jordan [H3383] , and went through [H3212] all Bithron [H1338] , and they came [H935] to Mahanaim [H4266] .

2:30 And Joab [H3097] returned [H7725] from following [H310] Abner [H74] : and when he had gathered [H6908] all the people [H5971] together [H6908] , there lacked [H6485] of David's [H1732] servants [H5650] nineteen [H8672] [H6240] men [H376] and Asahel [H6214] .

2:31 But the servants [H5650] of David [H1732] had smitten [H5221] of Benjamin [H1144] , and of Abner's [H74] men [H582] , [so that] three [H7969] hundred [H3967] and threescore [H8346] men [H376] died [H4191] .

2:32 And they took up [H5375] Asahel [H6214] , and buried [H6912] him in the sepulchre [H6913] of his father [H1] , which [was in] Bethlehem [H1035] . And Joab [H3097] and his men [H582] went [H3212] all night [H3915] , and they came to Hebron [H2275] at break of day [H215] .
