1 G2532 And G1097 [4knew G* 1Joab G5207 2son G* 3of Zeruiah] G3754 that G3588 the G2588 heart G3588 of the G935 king G1909 was towards G* Absalom.
2 G2532 And G649 Joab sent G* G1519 to G* Tekoah, G2532 and G2983 he took G1564 from there G1135 [2woman G4680 1a wise]. G2532 And G2036 he said G4314 to G1473 her, G3996 You mourn G1211 indeed, G2532 and G1746 put on G2440 [2garments G3996.1 1mournful], G2532 and G3361 do not G218 anoint yourself G1637 with oil, G2532 and G1510.8.2 be G5613 as G1135 a woman G2250 [3days G4183 2for many G3996 1mourning] G1909 for G2348 one having died!
3 G2532 And G2240 you shall come G4314 to G3588 the G935 king, G2532 and G2980 you shall speak G4314 to G1473 him G2596 according to G3588 G4487 this thing. G3778 G2532 And G5087 Joab put G* G3588 the G3056 words G1909 into G3588 G4750 her mouth. G1473
4 G2532 And G1525 [3entered G3588 1the G1135 2Tekoahite woman] G3588 G* G4314 to G3588 the G935 king, G2532 and G4098 she fell G1909 upon G4383 her face G1473 G1519 to G3588 the G1093 ground, G2532 and G4352 she did obeisance G1473 to him. G2532 And G2036 she said, G4982 Deliver, G935 O king, G4982 deliver!
5 G2532 And G2036 [3said G4314 4to G1473 5her G3588 1the G935 2king], G5100 What G1473 to you G1510.2.3 is it? G3588 G1161 And G2036 she said, G2532 By all means G3118.3 G1135 [4woman G5503 3a widow G1473 1I G1510.2.1 2am], G2532 and G599 [2died G3588 G435 1my husband]. G1473
6 G2532 And G1065 indeed G3588 to G1399 your maidservant G1473 G1417 are two G5207 sons, G2532 and G3164 they [2quarreled G297 1both] G1722 in G3588 the G68 field, G2532 and G3756 there was no one G1510.7.3 G3588 G1807 for rescuing G303.1 between G1473 them, G2532 and G3817 [3hit G3588 1the G1520 2one] G3588 G1520 [2one G80 3brother G1473 1his], G2532 and G2289 killed him. G1473
7 G2532 And G2400 behold, G1881 [4rose up G3650 2entire G3588 1the G3965 3family] G4314 against G3588 G1399 your maidservant, G1473 G2532 and G2036 they said, G1325 Give over G3588 the G3817 one hitting G3588 G80 his brother, G1473 G2532 and G2289 we shall kill him, G1473 G473 on account of G3588 the G5590 life G3588 G80 of his brother G1473 G3739 whom G615 he killed; G2532 and G1808 we shall take away G3588 the G2818 heir. G2532 And G4570 so they shall extinguish G3588 G440 my spark of coal, G1473 G3588 the one G2641 being left behind to me, G5620 so as G3361 to not G5087 establish G3588 to G435 my husband G1473 G2640 a vestige G2532 and G3686 name G1909 upon G4383 the face G3588 of the G1093 earth.
8 G2532 And G2036 [3said G3588 1the G935 2king] G4314 to G3588 the G1135 woman, G4198 Go G1519 to G3588 G3624 your house G1473 G5198 being in health! G2504 and I G1781 will take charge G4012 concerning G1473 you.
9 G2532 And G2036 [4said G3588 G1135 3woman G3588 1the G* 2Tekoahite] G4314 to G3588 the G935 king, G2962 O my master, G1473 G935 O king, G1909 upon G1473 me G3588 be the G93 iniquity, G2532 and G1909 upon G3588 the G3624 house G3588 G3962 of my father! G1473 G2532 and G3588 the G935 king G2532 and G3588 G2362 his throne G1473 G121 be innocent!
10 G2532 And G2036 [3said G3588 1the G935 2king], G3588 The one G2980 speaking G4314 to G1473 you G4487 a word, G71 lead G1473 him G4314 to G1473 me! G2532 and G3766.2 in no way G4369 shall anyone proceed G2089 yet G680 to touch G1473 you.
11 G2532 And G2036 [3said G3588 1the G1135 2woman], G3421 Let now [3remember G1211 4indeed G3588 1the G935 2king] G3588 the G2962 lord G2316 your God! G1473 G4129 to multiply G70.3 a relative G3588 for G129 blood G3588 G1311 to utterly destroy, G2532 and G3766.2 in no way G1808 take away G3588 G5207 my son. G1473 G2532 And G2036 he said, G2198 As the lord lives, G2962 G3756 there shall not fall G4098 G575 of G3588 the G2359 hair G3588 G5207 of your son G1473 G1909 upon G3588 the G1093 ground.
12 G2532 And G2036 [3said G3588 1the G1135 2woman], G2980 Let [2speak G1211 3indeed G3588 G1399 1your maidservant] G1473 G4314 to G3588 G2962 my master G1473 G3588 the G935 king G4487 a thing! G2532 And G2036 he said, G2980 Speak!
13 G2532 And G2036 [3said G3588 1the G1135 2woman], G2444 Why G3049 have you imputed G3779 thus G1909 upon G2992 the people G2316 of God? G2532 Yes, G1537 by G3588 G2980 [3speaking G3588 1the G935 2king] G3588 G3056 this word G3778 G5613 it is as G4131.1 a trespass, G3588 G3361 [3to not G1994 4return G3588 1for the G935 2king] G3588 the one G683 being thrust away G575 by G1473 him.
14 G3754 For G2288 to death G599 we shall die, G2532 and G5618 as G3588 the G5204 water G3588 G1632 being discharged G1909 upon G3588 the G1093 earth, G3756 not G4863 being gathered together; G2532 that G3756 [2not G2983 1God shall] take G3588 G2316 G5590 the life; G2532 yet G3049 he himself devises G3053 a device G3588 to G3361 not G683 thrust away G575 from G1473 him G683 the one being thrusted away.
15 G2532 And G3568 now G5228 for G3739 which G2240 I came G2980 to speak G4314 to G3588 [2the G935 3king G3588 G2962 1my master] G1473 G3588 G3056 this word, G3778 G3754 for G3708 [3see G1473 4me G3588 1the G2992 2people]; G2532 and G2046 [3will say G3588 G1399 2maidservant G1473 1your], G2980 Let [2speak G1211 3indeed G3588 G1399 1your maidservant] G1473 G4314 to G3588 G2962 my master G1473 G3588 the G935 king, G1513 if by any means G4160 [3shall do G3588 1the G935 2king] G3588 the G4487 matter G3588 G3814 of his maidservant; G1473
16 G3754 for G191 [3shall hear G3588 1the G935 2king] G4506 to rescue G3588 G1399 his maidservant G1473 G1537 from out of G5495 the hand G3588 of the G435 man G3588 G2212 seeking G1808 to take me away, G1473 G2532 and G3588 G5207 my son, G1473 G575 from G2817 the inheritance G2316 of God.
17 G2532 And G2046 said G3588 G1399 your maidservant, G1473 G1096 Let G1211 indeed G3588 the G3056 word G3588 G2962 of my master G1473 G3588 the G935 king G1519 be as an G2378 accepted sacrifice. G3754 For G2531 as G32 a messenger G2316 of God, G3779 thus is G3588 G2962 my master G1473 G3588 the G935 king, G3588 G191 to hear G3588 the G2570 good G2532 and G3588 the G4190 bad; G2532 and G2962 the lord G3588 G2316 your God G1473 G1510.8.3 will be G3326 with G1473 you.
18 G2532 And G611 [3answered G3588 1the G935 2king] G2532 and G2036 said G3588 to the G1135 woman, G3361 You should not G1211 indeed G2928 hide G575 from G1473 me G3588 the G4487 matter G3739 which G302 ever G1473 I G1905 shall ask G1473 you. G2532 And G2036 [3said G3588 1the G1135 2woman], G2980 Let [5speak G1211 1indeed G3588 G2962 2my master G1473 G3588 3the G935 4king]!
19 G2532 And G2036 [3said G3588 1the G935 2king], G3361 Is not G3588 the G5495 hand G* of Joab G1722 in G3956 all G3778 this G3326 with G1473 you? G2532 And G611 [3answered G2532 4and G2036 5said G3588 1the G1135 2woman] G3588 to the G935 king, G2198 As [2lives G3588 G5590 1your soul], G1473 G2962 O my master, G1473 G935 O king, G1487 since there is no turning G1510.2.3 G1519 to G3588 the G1188 right G2228 or G1519 to G3588 the G710 left G1537 of G3956 all G3739 which G2980 [4spoke G3588 G2962 1my master G1473 G3588 2the G935 3king], G3754 for G3588 G1401 your servant G1473 G* Joab G1473 himself G1781 gave charge G1473 to me, G2532 and G1473 he G5087 put G1722 [3in G3588 4the G4750 5mouth G3588 G1399 6of your maidservant G1473 G3956 1all G3588 G3056 2these words]. G3778
20 G1752 So as for G3588 G4022 [4to come about G3588 1the G4383 2face G3588 G4487 3of this matter], G3778 G4160 [3prepared G3588 G1401 2your servant G1473 G* 1Joab] G3588 G3056 this thing. G3778 G2532 And G3588 G2962 my master G1473 G3588 the G935 king G4680 is wise G2531 as G4678 the wisdom G32 of a messenger G3588 G2316 of God, G3588 G1097 to know G3956 all G3588 the things G1722 in G3588 the G1093 land.
21 G2532 And G2036 [3said G3588 1the G935 2king] G4314 to G* Joab, G2400 Behold, G1211 indeed G4160 I do G1473 to you G2596 according to G3588 G3056 [2your word G1473 G3778 1this]. G4198 Go G1994 return G3588 the G3808 young man G3588 G* Absalom!
22 G2532 And G4098 Joab fell G* G1909 upon G4383 his face G1473 G1909 upon G3588 the G1093 ground, G2532 and G4352 did obeisance, G2532 and G2127 blessed G3588 the G935 king. G2532 And G2036 Joab said, G* G4594 Today G1097 [2knows G3588 G1401 1your servant] G1473 G3754 that G2147 he found G5484 favor G1722 in G3788 your eyes, G1473 G2962 O my master, G1473 G935 O king, G3754 for G4160 [4did G3588 G2962 1my master G1473 G3588 2the G935 3king] G3588 the G3056 matter G3588 G1401 for his servant. G1473
23 G2532 And G450 Joab rose up G* G2532 and G4198 went G1519 into G* Geshur, G2532 and G71 he led G3588 G* Absalom G1519 into G* Jerusalem.
24 G2532 And G2036 [3said G3588 1the G935 2king], G654 Let him return G1519 to G3588 G3624 his house, G1473 G2532 but G3588 G4383 [3my face G1473 G3361 1let him not G991 2see]! G2532 And G654 Absalom returned G* G1519 to G3588 G3624 his house, G1473 G2532 but G3588 the G4383 face G3588 of the G935 king G3756 he did not G1492 see.
25 G2532 And G5613 [3as G* 4Absalom G3756 1there was no G1510.7.3 G435 2man] G1722 in G3956 all G* Israel G133.1 as [2praiseworthy G4970 1exceedingly]. G575 From G2487 the sole G4228 of his foot G1473 G2532 and G2193 unto G2884.2 the top G1473 of his head -- G3756 there was not G1510.7.3 G1722 [2on G1473 3him G3470 1a blemish].
26 G2532 And G1722 in G3588 G2751 his shearing G1473 G3588 G2776 his head, G1473 G2532 and G1096 it took place G575 at G5056 the end G2250 of days G1519 unto G2250 days G3754 that G2751 he sheared it, G3754 for G2599 it became burdensome G1909 upon G1473 him; G2532 and G2751 shearing, G2476 he set aside G3588 the G2359 hair G3588 G2776 of his head G1473 G1250 two hundred G4608.2 shekels G1722 of G3588 the G4712.4 [2scale-weight G3588 G937 1royal].
27 G2532 And G5088 there was born to G3588 G* Absalom G5140 three G5207 sons G2532 and G2364 [2daughter G1520 1one], G2532 and G3686 her name G1473 G* was Tamar, G3778 she G1510.7.3 was G1135 [3woman G2570 2goodly G4970 1an exceedingly].
28 G2532 And G2523 Absalom stayed G* G1722 in G* Jerusalem G1417 two G2094 years G2250 of days, G2532 and G3588 the G4383 face G3588 of the G935 king G3756 he did not G1492 see.
29 G2532 And G649 Absalom sent G* G4314 for G* Joab G3588 G649 to send G1473 him G4314 to G3588 the G935 king, G2532 and G3756 he did not G2309 want G2064 to come G4314 to G1473 him. G2532 And G649 he sent G2089 again G1537 the second time G1208 G4314 to G1473 him, G2532 and G3756 he did not G2309 want G3854 to come.
30 G2532 And G2036 Absalom said G* G4314 to G3588 G1401 his servants, G1473 G1492 You know G3588 the G3310 portion G1722 in G68 the field G3588 G* of Joab G2192 being next to G1473 mine, G2532 and G1473 to him G1563 is barley there. G2915 G4198 You go G2532 and G1714 burn G1473 it G1722 by G4442 fire! G2532 And G1714 [4burned G3588 1the G1401 2servants G* 3of Absalom] G1722 by G4442 fire G3588 the G3310 portion of the field G* of Joab.
31 G2532 And G450 Joab rose up, G* G2532 and G2064 came G4314 to G* Absalom, G1519 to G3588 the G3624 house, G2532 and G2036 said G4314 to G1473 him, G2444 Why did G1716.1 [2set on fire G3588 G1401 1your servants] G1473 G3588 G68 my field G1473 G1722 with G4442 fire?
32 G2532 And G2036 Absalom said G* G4314 to G* Joab, G2400 Behold, G649 I sent G4314 to G1473 you, G3004 saying, G2240 Come G5602 here! G2532 And G649 I will send G1473 you G4314 to G3588 the G935 king, G3004 saying, G2444 Why did G2064 I come G1537 from out of G* Geshur? G18 [2good G1473 3for me G1510.7.3 1It was] G3588 G1510.1 to be G1563 there. G2532 And G3568 now, G3708 I shall see G1211 indeed G4383 the face G3588 of the G935 king, G2532 and G1487 if G1510.2.3 there is G1722 [2in G1473 3me G93 1iniquity] G2532 then G2289 I shall be killed.
33 G2532 And G4198 Joab went G* G4314 to G3588 the G935 king, G2532 and G518 reported G1473 to him. G2532 And G2564 he called G3588 G* Absalom, G2532 and G1525 he entered G4314 to G3588 the G935 king, G2532 and G4352 he did obeisance G1473 to him G2532 and G4098 fell G1909 upon G4383 his face G1473 G1909 upon G3588 the G1093 ground G1799 before G3588 the G935 king. G2532 And G2705 [3kissed G3588 1the G935 2king] G3588 G* Absalom.
