1 G2532 And G1096 it came to pass G3326 after G3778 these things, G2532 and G1905 David asked G* G1722 by G2962 the lord, G3004 saying, G1487 Shall G305 I ascend G1519 unto G1520 one G3588 of the G4172 cities G3588 G* of Judah? G2532 And G2036 the lord said G2962 G4314 to G1473 him, G305 Ascend! G2532 And G2036 David said, G* G4226 Where G305 should I ascend? G2532 And G2036 he said, G1519 Unto G* Hebron.
2 G2532 And G305 [2ascended G1563 3there G* 1David], G2532 and G297 both G3588 G1135 his wives -- G1473 G* Ahinoam G3588 the G* Jezreelitess, G2532 and G* Abigail G3588 the G1135 wife G* of Nabal G3588 the G* Carmelite.
3 G2532 And G3588 the G435 men G3588 G3326 were with G1473 him, G1538 each one G2532 and G3588 G3624 his house. G1473 G2532 And G2730 they dwelt G1722 among G3588 the G4172 cities G* of Hebron.
4 G2532 And G2064 [4come G3588 1the G435 2men G3588 G* 3of Judea] G2532 and G5548 anoint G3588 G* David G1563 there G3588 G936 to reign G1909 over G3588 the G3624 house G* of Judah. G2532 And G518 they reported G3588 G* to David, G3004 saying, G3588 The G435 men G* of Jabish G3588 of the G* Gileadites G2290 entombed G3588 G* Saul.
5 G2532 And G649 David sent G* G32 messengers G4314 to G3588 the G2233 leaders G* of Jabish G3588 of the G* Gileadites, G2532 And G2036 he said G4314 to G1473 them, G2127 Being blessed G1473 are you G3588 to the G2962 lord, G3754 that G4160 you performed G3588 G1656 this mercy G3778 G1909 for G3588 G2962 your master, G1473 G1909 for G3588 G* Saul, G2532 and G2290 you entombed G1473 him.
6 G2532 And G3568 now, G4160 may the lord perform G2962 G3326 [4with G1473 5you G1656 1mercy G2532 2and G225 3truth]; G2532 and G1065 indeed G1473 I G4160 will do G3326 with G1473 you G3588 G18 this good G3778 G3754 that G4160 you did G3588 G4487 in this matter. G3778
7 G2532 And G3568 now G2901 strengthen G3588 G5495 your hands G1473 G2532 and G1096 become G1519 as G5207 [2sons G1415 1mighty]!

8 G2532 And G* Abner G5207 son G* of Ner, G751.2 commander-in-chief G3588 G* of Saul, G2983 took G3588 G* Ishbosheth G5207 son G3588 G* of Saul, G2532 and G307 brought G1473 him G1537 from out of G3588 the G3925 camp G1519 into G* Mahanaim,
9 G2532 and G936 gave him to reign G1473 G1909 over G3588 G* Gilead, G2532 and G1909 over G3588 the G* Ashurites, G2532 and G1909 over G3588 G* Jezreel, G2532 and G1909 over G3588 G* Ephraim, G2532 and G1909 over G3588 G* Benjamin, G2532 and G1909 over G3956 all G* Israel.
10 G5062 [4was forty G2094 5years old G* 1Ishbosheth G5207 2son G* 3of Saul] G3753 when G936 he reigned G1909 over G* Israel; G2532 and G1417 [2two G2094 3years G936 1he reigned]; G4133 except for G3588 the G3624 house G* of Judah, G3739 the ones which G1510.7.6 were G3694 following after G* David.
11 G2532 And G1096 became G706 the number G3588 of the G2250 days G3739 which G* David G936 reigned G1722 in G* Hebron G1909 over G3588 the G3624 house G* of Judah -- G2033 seven G2094 years G2532 and G3376 [2months G1803 1six].

13 G2532 And G* Joab G5207 son G* of Zeruiah, G2532 and G3588 the G3816 servants G* of David, G1831 came forth G1537 out of G* Hebron, G2532 and G4876 met G1473 them G1909 at G3588 the G2911.1 fountain G3588 G* of Gibeon. G2532 And G2523 these sat G3778 G1782 here on this side, G2532 and G3778 these others G1909 at G3588 the G2911.1 fountain G1782 here on that side .
14 G2532 And G2036 Abner said G* G4314 to G* Joab, G450 Raise up G1211 indeed G3588 the G3808 servant-lads G2532 and G3815 let them play G1799 before G1473 us! G2532 And G2036 Joab said, G* G450 Let them arise!
15 G2532 And G450 they rose up G2532 and G3928 went by G1722 in G706 number -- G1427 twelve G3588 of the G3816 servants G* of Benjamin G3588 G* of Ishbosheth G5207 son G* of Saul, G2532 and G1427 twelve G3588 of the G3816 servants G* of David.
16 G2532 And G2902 they [2held G1538 1each] G3588 by their G5495 hand G3588 the G2776 head G3588 G4139 of his neighbor; G1473 G2532 and G3588 G3162 his knife G1473 G1519 was thrust into G3588 the G4125 side G3588 G4139 of his neighbor; G1473 G2532 and G4098 they fell down G2596 together. G3588 G1473 G2532 And G2564 they called G3588 G5117 that place, G1565 G3310 Portion G3588 of the G1917.1 Plotters, G3739 which G1510.2.3 is G1722 in G* Gibeon.
17 G2532 And G1096 [3was G3588 1the G4171 2battle] G4642 hard G5620 so as to G3029 an exceeding degree G1722 in G3588 G2250 that day. G1565 G2532 And G4417 [6failed G* 1Abner G2532 2and G3588 3the G435 4men G* 5of Israel] G1799 before G3588 the G3816 servants G* of David.
18 G2532 And G1096 there were G1563 there G5140 three G5207 sons G* of Zeruiah -- G* Joab G2532 and G* Abishai G2532 and G* Asahel. G2532 And G* Asahel G2893.1 was light G3588 G4228 of his feet, G1473 G5616 as G1520 one G1393 doe G3588 of the ones G1722 in G68 the field.
19 G2532 And G2614 Asahel pursued G* G3694 after G* Abner, G2532 and G3756 he did not G1578 turn aside G3588 G4198 to go G1519 to G3588 the G1188 right G3761 nor G1519 to G3588 the G710 left G2733.5 after G* Abner.
20 G2532 And G1914 Abner looked G* G1519 to G3588 G3694 his rear, G1473 G2532 and G2036 said, G1473 Are you G1510.2.2 G1473 Asahel himself? G1473 G2532 And G2036 he said, G1473 I G1510.2.1 am.
21 G2532 And G2036 [2said G1473 3to him G* 1Abner], G1578 Turn aside G1473 G1519 to G3588 the G1188 right G2228 or G1519 to G3588 the G710 left, G2532 and G2722 constrain G4572 to yourself G1520 one G3588 of the G3808 servant-lads, G2532 and G2983 take G4572 to yourself G3588 G3833 his full armor! G1473 G2532 And G3756 [2did not G2309 3want G* 1Asahel] G1578 to turn aside G1537 from G3588 G3693 being behind G1473 him.
22 G2532 And G4369 [2added G2089 3yet G* 1Abner], G3004 saying G3588 G* to Asahel, G868 Leave G575 from G1473 me! G2443 that G3361 I should not G3960 strike G1473 you G1519 unto G3588 the G1093 ground. G2532 For G4459 how G142 shall I lift G3588 G4383 my face G1473 G4314 to G* Joab G3588 G80 your brother? G1473
23 G2532 And G3756 he was not willing G1014 G3588 G868 to leave. G2532 And G5180 [2struck G1473 3him G* 1Abner] G1722 with G3588 the G3694 rear G3588 of the G1393.2 spear G1909 upon G3588 his G5589.1 flank. G2532 And G1326.7 [3went completely through G3588 1the G1393.2 2spear] G1537 out G3588 G3694 behind G1473 him. G2532 And G4098 he falls G1563 there G2532 and G599 dies G5270 underneath G1473 him. G2532 And G1096 it came to pass G3956 every one G3588 G2064 coming G2193 unto G3588 the G5117 place G3739 where G4098 [2fell G1563 3there G* 1Asahel] G2532 and G599 died, G2532 even G5307.2 stood still .
24 G2532 And G2614 [4pursued G* 1Joab G2532 2and G* 3Abishai] G3694 after G* Abner, G2532 and G3588 the G2246 sun G1416 went down. G2532 And G1473 they G1525 entered G2193 unto G3588 the G1015 hill G* of Ammah, G2596 according to G4383 the face G* of Giah, G3598 [2way G2048 1 the wilderness] G* of Gibeon.
25 G2532 And G4867 [4gathered together G3588 1the G5207 2sons G* 3of Benjamin], G3588 the ones G3694 following after G* Abner, G2532 and G1096 they came G1519 to G4877 meet G1520 as one, G2532 and G2476 they stood G1909 upon G2776 the head G1015 [2hill G1520 1of one].
26 G2532 And G2564 Abner called G* G3588 G* Joab, G2532 and G2036 he said, G3361 Shall G1519 [4in G3534 5victory G2719 3devour G3588 1the G4501 2broadsword], G2228 or G3756 do you not G1492 know G3754 that G4089 it will be bitter G1510.8.3 G1519 at G3588 the G2078 last? G2532 And G2193 for how long G4219 G3766.2 [2in no way G2036 1shall you] speak G3588 to the G2992 people G654 to return G575 from G3693 following after G3588 G80 their brethren? G1473
27 G2532 And G2036 Joab said, G* G2198 As the lord lives, G2962 G3754 that G1508 if you had not G2980 spoken, G1360 because G5119 then G1537 from G4405.1 the morning G305 [3ascended G302 4even G3588 1the G2992 2people] G1538 each G2733.5 after G3588 G80 his brother.
28 G2532 And G4537 Joab trumped G* G3588 the G4536 trumpet, G2532 and G868 [4left G3956 1all G3588 2the G2992 3people], G2532 and G3756 did not G2614 pursue G3765 any longer G3694 after G3588 G* Israel, G2532 and G3756 they did not G4369 proceed G2089 any longer G3588 G4170 to wage war.
29 G2532 And G* Abner G2532 and G3588 G435 his men G1473 G565 went forth G1519 at G1424 the descent of the sun, G3650 and went all G3588 G3571 that night, G1565 G2532 and G1224 passed over G3588 the G* Jordan, G2532 and G4198 they went G3650 the entire G3588 G3905 extent, G2532 and G2064 they came G1519 unto G3925 Camp.
30 G2532 And G* Joab G390 returned G3693 from following behind G575 G3588 G* Abner, G2532 And G4867 he gathered together G3956 all G3588 the G2992 people. G2532 And G1980 they numbered G3588 the G3816 servants G* of David, G3588 the ones G4098 having fallen -- G1767.1 nineteen G435 men G2532 and G* Asahel.
31 G2532 And G3588 the G3816 servants G* of David G3960 struck G3588 of the G5207 sons G* of Benjamin, G3588 of the G435 men G* of Abner -- G5145 three hundred G2532 and G1835 sixty G435 men.
32 G2532 And G142 they lifted up G3588 G* Asahel, G2532 and G2290 they entombed G1473 him G1722 in G3588 the G5028 burying-place G3588 G3962 of his father G1473 G1722 in G* Beth-lehem. G2532 And G4198 [4went G3650 5 the entire G3588 G3571 6night G* 1Joab G2532 2and G3588 G435 3his men], G1473 G2532 and G1307.1 light shined through G1473 to them G1722 in G* Hebron.
