G2532 And G4537 he trumped G4536 the trumpet, G2532 and G2036 said, G3756 There is not G1510.2.3 G1473 to us G3310 a portion G1722 among G* David, G3761 nor G2817 an inheritance G1722 in G3588 the G5207 son G* of Jesse. G1538 Each G435 man G1519 to G3588 G4638 his tents, G1473 G* O Israel.
2 G2532 And G305 ascended G3956 every G435 man G* of Israel G575 from G3693 behind G* David G3694 to follow after G* Sheba G5207 son G* of Bichri. G3588 But the G1161 G435 men G* of Judah G2853 cleaved G4314 to G3588 G935 their king G1473 G575 from G3588 the G* Jordan G2532 and G2193 unto G* Jerusalem.

G2532 And G1510.7.6 they were G4912 held G2193 until G2250 the days G2288 of their death G1473 G5503 [2as widows G2198 1living].

5 G2532 And G4198 Amasa went G* G3588 G3853 to summon G3588 G* Judah, G2532 and G5549 he passed time G575 beyond G3588 the G2540 time G3739 which G5021 [2ordered G1473 3him G* 1David].
6 G2532 And G2036 David said G* G4314 to G* Abishai, G3568 Now G2554 [4shall do us evil G1473 G* 1Sheba G5207 2son G* 3of Bichri] G5228 above G* Absalom. G2532 And G3568 now G2983 take G3326 with G4572 yourself G3588 the G3816 servants G3588 G2962 of your master, G1473 G2532 and G2614 pursue G3694 after G1473 him! G3704 so that G3361 he should not find G2147 G1438 for himself G4172 [2cities G3793.1 1fortified], G2532 and G4639.2 he should shadow G3588 G3788 our eyes. G1473

G2532 And G1831 they went forth G1537 from G* Jerusalem, G1377 to pursue G3694 after G* Sheba G5207 son G* of Bichri.

G1473 G2532 And G3588 the G3162 sword G1831 came forth G2532 and G4098 fell.
9 G2532 And G2036 Joab said G* G3588 G* to Amasa, G1487 Are G5198 you in health, G1473 G80 my brother? G1473 G2532 And G2722 [5constrained G3588 1the G5495 3hand G3588 G1188 2right G* 4of Joab] G3588 the G4452.1 beard G* of Amasa G3588 G2705 to kiss G1473 him.
10 G2532 And G* Amasa G3756 did not G5442 guard G575 from G3588 the G3162 sword, G3588 of the one G1722 in G3588 the G5495 hand G* of Joab. G2532 And G3817 [2hit G1473 3him G1722 4with G1473 5it G* 1Joab] G1519 in G3588 his G5589.1 flank, G2532 and G1632 [3poured out G3588 G2836 2belly G1473 1his] G1909 upon G3588 the G1093 ground, G2532 and G3756 it was not G1208.1 repeated a second time G1473 to him, G2532 and G599 he died. G2532 And G* Joab G2532 and G* Abishai G3588 G80 his brother G1473 G1377 pursued G3694 after G* Sheba G5207 son G* of Bichri.
11 G2532 And G435 a man G2476 stood G1909 by G1473 him, G3588 one of the G3808 servants G* of Joab. G2532 And G2036 he said, G5100 Who G3588 is the G1014 one wanting G* Joab, G2532 and G5100 who G3588 is the one wanting G* David? G3694 Be behind G3588 G* Joab.
12 G2532 And G* Amasa G2348 having died, G2532 and G5445.4 being befouled G1722 in G3588 the G129 blood, G1722 was in G3319 the middle G3588 of the G5147 road. G2532 And G1492 [2beheld G435 1a man] G3754 that G2476 [4stood G3956 1all G3588 2the G2992 3people]. G2532 And G1994 he returned G3588 G* Amasa G1537 from G3588 the G5147 road G1519 to G68 the field, G2532 and G1977 cast G1909 upon G1473 him G2440 a cloak, G3754 for G1492 he beheld G3754 that G3956 every one G3588 G2064 coming G2476 stopped G1909 by G1473 him.
13 G2532 And G1096 it came to pass G3753 when G3179 he removed him G1537 from out of G3588 the G5147 road, G3928 [5went by G3956 1all G3588 2the G2992 3people G* 4of Israel] G3694 after G* Joab, G3588 G1377 to pursue G3694 after G* Sheba G5207 son G* of Bichri.
14 G2532 And G1330 he went through G1519 among G3956 all G3588 the G5443 tribes G3588 G* of Israel, G1519 to G* Abel G2532 and G* Beth-maacah. G2532 And G1826.1 they were assembled, G2532 and G2064 they came G2733.5 after G1473 him.
15 G2532 And G3854 they came G2532 and G4171.2 assaulted G1909 against G1473 him G1722 in G3588 G* Abel G2532 and G* Beth-maacah. G2532 And G906 they cast G5482 a seige mound G1909 against G3588 the G4172 city, G2532 and G2476 it stood G1722 in G3588 the G4385.1 area around the wall. G2532 And G3956 all G3588 the G2992 people G3588 G3326 with G* Joab G3539 purposed G2598 to throw down G3588 the G5038 wall.
16 G2532 And G994 [3yelled out G1135 2woman G4680 1a wise] G1537 from G3588 the G4172 city, G2532 and G2036 said, G191 Hearken G1211 indeed! G191 hearken! G2036 Say G1211 indeed G3588 to G* Joab, G1448 Approach G2193 unto G5602 here! G2532 and G2980 I will speak G4314 to G1473 him.
17 G2532 And G4331 he drew near G4314 to G1473 her. G2532 And G2036 [3said G3588 1the G1135 2woman], G1487 Are you G1473 G* Joab? G2532 And G2036 he said, G1473 I am . G2036 And she said G1161 G1473 to him, G191 Hear G3588 the G3056 words G3588 G1399 of your maidservant! G1473 G2532 And G2036 he said, G191 [3listening G1473 1I G1510.2.1 2am].
18 G2532 And G2036 she said, G3004 saying, G3056 [2a word G2980 1They spoke] G1722 at G4413 first, G3004 saying, G2065 By asking G1905 they shall ask G1722 in G* Abel; G2532 and G3779 thus G1587 they ceased.
19 G1473 I G1510.2.1 am G1516 peaceable G4739.6 of ones supporting G* Israel. G1473 But you G1161 G2212 seek G2289 to kill G4172 a city, G2532 even G3390 a mother-city G1722 in G* Israel. G2444 Why G2666 do you swallow down G2817 the inheritance G2962 of the lord ?
20 G2532 And G611 Joab answered G* G2532 and G2036 said, G3361 May it not be to me G1473 G1096 G1519 to G2666 swallow it, G2532 and G1487 shall G1311 I utterly destroy it ?
21 G3756 [3is not G3779 4so G3588 1The G3056 2word]. G3754 For G435 a man G1537 from G3735 mount G* Ephraim, G* Sheba G5207 son G* of Bichri G3686 is his name, G1473 G1869 lifted up G3588 G5495 his hand G1473 G1909 against G3588 G935 king G* David. G1325 Give G1473 him G1473 to me G3440 only, G2532 and G565 I shall go forth G575 from G3588 the G4172 city. G2532 And G2036 [3said G3588 1the G1135 2woman] G4314 to G* Joab, G2400 Behold, G3588 G2776 [2his head G1473 G4495 1I will toss] G4314 to G1473 you G1223 over G3588 the G5038 wall.
22 G2532 And G4198 [3went in G3588 1the G1135 2woman] G4314 to G3956 all G3588 the G2992 people, G2532 and G2980 she spoke G4314 to G3956 all G3588 the G4172 city G1722 in G3588 G4678 her wisdom. G1473 G2532 And G851 they removed G3588 the G2776 head G* of Sheba G5207 son G* of Bichri, G2532 and G4495 they tossed G1473 it G4314 to G* Joab. G2532 And G4537 he trumped G1722 with G2768.4 the horn, G2532 and G1289 they scattered G575 from G3588 the G4172 city, G1538 each G435 man G1519 to G3588 G4638 his tents.
