2 Samuel 17

  1 G2532 And G2036 Ahithophel said G*   G4314 to G* Absalom, G1951 I shall choose G1211 indeed G1683 for myself G1427 twelve G5505 thousand G435 men, G2532 and G450 I shall rise up G2532 and G2614 pursue G3694 after G* David G3588   G3571 at night.
  2 G2532 And G1904 I shall come G1909 upon G1473 him, G2532 and G1473 he G2872 will be tiring G2532 and G1590 loosening G5495 his hand, G2532 and G1839 I shall startle G1473 him, G2532 and G5343 [6shall flee G3956 1all G3588 2the G2992 3people G3588   G3326 4with G1473 5him], G2532 and G3960 I shall strike G3588 the G935 king G3441 alone.
  3 G2532 And G1994 I shall return G3956 all G3588 the G2992 people G4314 to G1473 you, G3739 in which G5158 manner G1994 [2returns G3565 1a bride] G4314 to G3588   G435 her husband. G1473   G4133 Besides G5590 [3 the life G435 5man G1520 4of one G1473 1you G2212 2seek], G2532 and G3956 all G3588 the G2992 people G1510.8.3 will be G1515 at peace.
  4 G2532 And G700 [3was pleasing G3588 1the G3056 2word] G1722 in G3788 the eyes G* of Absalom, G2532 and G1722 in G3788 the eyes G3956 of all G3588 the G4245 elders G* of Israel.
  5 G2532 And G2036 Absalom said, G*   G2564 Call G1211 indeed G3588   G* Hushai G3588 the G* Archite, G2532 and G191 I shall hear G5100 what G1722 is in G3588   G4750 his mouth, G1473   G2532 and G1065 indeed G1473 of him.
  6 G2532 And G1525 Hushai entered G1473   G4314 to G* Absalom. G2532 And G2036 Absalom said G*   G4314 to G1473 him, G3004 saying, G2596 According to G3588   G4487 this thing G3778   G2980 Ahithophel spoke. G*   G1487 Shall G4160 we do G2596 according to G3588   G3056 his word? G1473   G1490 But if not G1473 you G2980 speak!
  7 G2532 And G2036 Hushai said G*   G4314 to G* Absalom, G3756 It is not G18 good, G3778 this G3588   G1012 counsel G3739 which G1011 Ahithophel counseled G*   G3588   G530 this one time. G3778  
  8 G2532 And G2036 Hushai said, G*   G1473 You G1492 know G3588   G3962 your father, G1473   G2532 and G3588   G435 his men, G1473   G3754 that G1415 [3mighty G1510.2.6 1they are G4970 2exceedingly], G2532 and G2665.4 [2 is very bitter G3588   G5590 1their soul] G1473   G5613 as G715 a bear G815.1 being made childless G1722 in G3588 the G3977.1 plain. G2532 And G3588   G3962 your father G1473   G435 is [2man G4170.3 1a warrior], G2532 and G3766.2 in no way G2664 shall he rest G3588 the G2992 people.
  9 G2400 For behold G1063   G1473 he G3568 now G2928 hides G1722 in G1520 one G3588 of the G836.1 canyons, G2228 or G1722 in G1520 one G3588 of the G5117 places. G2532 And G1510.8.3 it will be G1722 when G3588 they G1968 fall upon G1473 them G1722 at the G746 beginning, G2532 that G191 one shall hear G3588 the G191 hearing, G2532 and G2036 should say, G1096 There was G2351.5 a devastation G1722 among G3588 the G2992 people, G3588 to the one G3694 following after G* Absalom.
  10 G2532 And G1065 indeed G1473 any G5207 son G1411 of power G3739 whose G3588   G2588 heart G2531 is as G3588 the G2588 heart G3588   G3023 of a lion, G5080 in melting away G5080 he shall melt away, G3754 for G1492 [3knows G3956 1all G* 2Israel] G3754 that G1415 [2 is mighty G3588   G3962 1your father] G1473   G2532 and G5207 the sons G1411 of power, G3956 all G3588 the ones G3326 with G1473 him.
  11 G3779 Thus G4823 advising, G1473 I G4823 advised. G2532 And G4863 [3in gathering together G4863 4shall gather together G1909 5unto G1473 6you G3956 1all G* 2Israel], G575 from G* Dan G2532 and G2193 unto G* Beer-sheba, G5613 as G3588 the G285 sand G3588   G1909 upon G3588 the G2281 sea G1519 in G4128 multitude. G2532 And G3588   G4383 your presence G1473   G4198 shall be going G1722 in G3319 the midst G1473 of them.
  12 G2532 And G2240 we shall come G1909 upon G1473 him G1519 in G1520 one G3588 of the G5117 places, G3739 which G302 ever G2147 we should find G1473 him G1563 there. G2532 And G3924.2 we shall camp G1909 upon G1473 him G5613 as G4098 falls G1408.1 the dew G1909 upon G3588 the G1093 ground. G2532 And G3756 we shall not leave behind G5275   G1722 among G1473 to him, G2532 and G3588   G435 of his men G1473   G3588   G3326 with G1473 him, G2532 even G1065 indeed G1520 one.
  13 G2532 And G1437 if G1519 [2into G3588 3the G4172 4city G4863 1he should gather], G2532 then G2983 [3shall take G3956 1all G* 2Israel] G4314 [2against G3588   G4172 3that city G1565   G4979 1lines], G2532 and G4951 drag G1473 it apart G2193 unto G1519   G3588 the G5493 rushing stream, G2193 unto G3361 not G2641 leaving behind G1563 there G3366 neither G3037 a stone.
  14 G2532 And G2036 Absalom said, G*   G2532 and G3956 every G435 man G* of Israel, G18 [6is good G3588 1The G1012 2counsel G* 3of Hushai G3588 4the G* 5Archite] G5228 over G3588 the G1012 counsel G* of Ahithophel. G2532 And G2962 the lord G1781 gave charge G3588   G1286.1 to efface G3588 the G1012 [2counsel G3588   G* 3of Ahithophel G3588   G18 1good], G3704 so G302 that G1863 the lord should bring G2962   G3588 the G2556 bad things G1909 upon G* Absalom.
  15 G2532 And G2036 Hushai said G1473   G4314 to G* Zadok G2532 and G4314 to G* Abiathar G3588 the G2409 priests, G3779 So G2532 and G3779 so G4823 advised G* Ahithophel G3588   G* to Absalom, G2532 and G3588 to the G4245 elders G* of Israel, G2532 and G3779 so G2532 and G3779 so G4823 I advised. G1473  
  16 G2532 And G3568 now G649 send G5036 quickly G2532 and G518 report G3588   G* to David! G3004 saying, G3361 You should not G835 lodge G3588 the G3571 night G2596 according to G1424 the descent G3588 of the G2048 wilderness, G235 but G1224 by passing over, G1224 pass over! G3704 so that G3361 [3should not G2666 4be swallowed down G3588 1the G935 2king], G2532 and G3956 all G3588 the G2992 people, G3588 the one G3326 with G1473 him.
  17 G2532 And G* Jonathan G2532 and G* Ahimaaz G2476 stopped G1909 at G3588 the G4077 spring G* of Rogel. G2532 And G4198 came forth G3588 the G3814 maidservant, G2532 and G312 she reported G1473 to them. G2532 And G1473 they G4198 went G2532 and G312 reported G3588   G935 to king David, G*   G3754 for G3756 they were not G1410 able G3708 to appear G3588   G1525 to enter G1519 into G3588 the G4172 city.
  18 G2532 And G1492 [2beheld G1473 3them G3808 1a young man], G2532 and G312 he reported G3588 to G* Absalom. G2532 And G4198 [3went G3588 1the G1417 2two] G5030 quickly, G2532 and G1525 they entered G1519 into G3624 a house G435 of a man G1722 in G* Bahurim, G2532 and G1473 unto his G2978.1 cistern G1722 in G3588 the G833 courtyard, G2532 and G2597 they went down G1563 there.
  19 G2532 And G2983 [2took G3588   G1135 1a woman] G2532 and G1276.1 opened and spread out G3588   G1942 a covering G1909 over G3588 the G4750 mouth G3588 of the G2978.1 cistern. G2532 And G5594 she cooled G1909 [2upon G1473 3it G3818.1 1dried clusters], G2532 and G3756 they did not know G1097   G3588 the G4487 thing.
  20 G2532 And G2064 [4came G3588 1the G3816 2servants G* 3of Absalom] G4314 to G3588 the G1135 woman, G1519 into G3588 the G3624 house, G2532 and G2036 they said, G4226 Where is G* Ahimaaz G2532 and G* Jonathan? G2532 And G2036 [3said G1473 4to them G3588 1the G1135 2woman], G3928 They went for G3397 a little G3588   G5204 water. G2532 And G2212 they sought G2532 and G3756 did not G2147 find them, G2532 and G390 they returned G1519 unto G* Jerusalem.
  21 G1096 And it came to pass, G1161   G3326 after G3588   G565 their going forth, G1473   G305 they ascended G1537 from out of G3588 the G2978.1 cistern, G2532 and G4198 went, G2532 and G518 reported G3588   G935 to king G* David. G2532 And G3004 they say G1473 to him, G450 Rise up G2532 and G1224 pass over G5030 [3quickly G3588 1the G5204 2water]! G3754 for G3592 thus G1011 [2has counseled G2596 3against G1473 4you G* 1Ahithophel].
  22 G2532 And G450 David rose up, G*   G2532 and G3956 all G3588 the G2992 people G3588   G3326 with G1473 him, G2532 and G1224 they passed over G3588 the G* Jordan G2193 until G3588 the G5457 light G3588 of the G4404 morning, G2193 until G1520 one G3756 was not unaware of G2990   G3739 who G3756 did not G1224 pass over G3588 the G* Jordan.
  23 G2532 And G* Ahithophel G1492 knew G3754 that G3756 he had not taken G1096   G3588   G1012 his counsel, G1473   G2532 and G1977.2 he saddled G3588   G3688 his donkey, G1473   G2532 and G450 rose up, G2532 and G565 went forth G1519 to G3588   G3624 his house G1473   G1519 in G3588   G4172 his city. G1473   G2532 And G1781 he gave charge G3588 to G3624 his household, G1473   G2532 and G519 he hung himself, G2532 and G599 died. G2532 And G2290 they entombed him G1722 in G3588 the G5028 burying-place G3588   G3962 of his father. G1473  
  24 G2532 And G* David G1330 went through G1519 unto G* Mahanaim. G2532 And G* Absalom G1224 passed over G3588 the G* Jordan, G1473 he G2532 and G3956 every G435 man G* of Israel G3326 with G1473 him.
  25 G2532 And G3588   G* [3Amasa G2525 2placed G* 1Absalom] G473 instead of G* Joab G1909 over G3588 the G1411 force. G2532 And G* Amasa G5207 was a son G435 of a man, G2532 and G3686 the name to him G1473   G* was Ithra G3588 the G* Israelite. G3778 This one G1525 entered G4314 to G* Abigail, G2364 daughter G* of Nahash, G79 sister G* of Zeruiah, G3384 mother G* of Joab.
  26 G2532 And G3924.2 Absalom camped G*   G2532 and G3956 all G* Israel G1519 in G3588 the G1093 land G* of Gilead.
  27 G2532 And G1096 it came to pass G3753 when G1525 David entered G*   G1519 into G* Mahanaim, G2532 that G* Shobi G5207 son G* of Nahash, G1537 from G* Rabbah G5207 of the sons G* of Ammon, G2532 and G* Machir G5207 son G* of Ammiel G1537 from G* Lo-debar, G2532 and G* Barzillai G3588 the G* Gileadite G1537 from G* Rogelim,
  28 G5342 brought G2845 beds, G2532 and G295.1 spreads, G2532 and G3003.1 kettles, G2532 and G4632 [2utensils G2766 1ceramic], G2532 and G4447.1 wheat, G2532 and G2915 barley, G2532 and G224 flour, G2532 and G2939.2 beans, G2532 and G5316.2 lentils G2532 and G255.1 toasted grain,
  29 G2532 and G3192 honey, G2532 and G1016.2 butter, G2532 and G4263 sheep, G2532 and G4569.2 cheese G1016 from oxen. G2532 And G4374 they brought near G3588   G* to David, G2532 and G3588 to the G2992 people G3588   G3326 with G1473 him G2068 to eat; G3754 for G2036 they said, G3588 The G2992 people G3983 are hungering, G2532 and G1590 fainting, G2532 and G1372 thirsting, G1722 in G3588 the G2048 wilderness.
