12 G2036 [4said G1161 1And G3588 2the G435 3man] G4314 to G* Joab, G2532 And G1437 if G1473 you G3936 rendered G1909 unto G3588 G5495 my hands G1473 G5507 a thousand G4608.2 shekels G694 of silver, G3756 in no way would G3361 G1911 I put G3588 G5495 my hand G1473 G1909 against G3588 the G5207 son G3588 of the G935 king. G3754 For G1722 in G3588 G3775 our ears G1473 G1781 [3gave charge G3588 1the G935 2king] G1473 to you, G2532 and G3588 to G* Abishai, G2532 and G3588 to G* Ittai, G3004 saying, G5442 Guard G1473 for me G3588 the G3808 young man G3588 G* Absalom,

G1473 G2532 And G2983 Joab took G* G5140 three G956 arrows G1722 in G3588 G5495 his hand, G1473 G2532 and G1704.1 he stuck G1473 them G1722 in G3588 the G2588 heart G* of Absalom G2089 while yet G1473 he was G2198 living, G1722 in G3588 the G2588 heart G3588 of the G1409.2 oak.

G3754 For G2036 he said, G3756 There is not G1510.2.3 G1473 to me G5207 a son G363 calling to mind G3588 G3686 my name. G1473 G2532 And G2564 he called G3588 the G4739.1 monument G1909 by G3588 G3686 his name. G1473 G2532 And G2564 he named G1473 it G5495 Hand G* of Absalom, G2193 until G3588 G2250 this day. G3778

23 G2532 And G2036 Ahimaaz said, G* G5100 For what G1063 G1437 if G5143 I shall run? G2532 And G2036 [2said G1473 3to him G* 1Joab], G5143 Run! G2532 And G5143 Ahimaaz ran G* G2596 by G3588 the G3598 way G3588 G* of Kechar, G2532 and G5233 he surpassed G3588 G* Cushi.
