1 G2532 And G1096 there was G4171 war G1909 for G4183 a long time G303.1 between G3588 the G3624 house G* of Saul, G2532 and G303.1 between G3588 the G3624 house G* of David. G2532 And G3588 the G3624 house G* of David G4198 went G2532 and G2901 strengthened. G2532 And G3588 the G3624 house G* of Saul G4198 went G2532 and G770 weakened.
2 G2532 And G5088 were born G3588 to G* David G1722 in G* Hebron G5207 [2sons G1803 1six], G2532 and G1510.7.3 [2was G3588 G4416 1his first-born] G1473 G* was Amnon G3588 G* by Ahinoam G3588 the G* Jezreelitess;
3 G2532 and G3588 G1208 his second G1473 G* was Chileab G3588 of G* Abigail G3588 the G* Carmelitess; G2532 and G3588 the G5154 third G* was Absalom G5207 son G* of Maacah G2364 daughter G* of Talmai G935 king G* of Geshur;
4 G2532 and G3588 the G5067 fourth G* was Adonijah G5207 son G* of Haggith; G2532 and G3588 the G3991 fifth G* was Shephatiah G3588 G* by Abital;
5 G2532 and G3588 the G1622 sixth G* was Ithream G3588 of G* Eglah G1135 wife G* of David. G3778 These G5088 were born G3588 to G* David G1722 in G* Hebron.
6 G2532 And G1096 it came to pass G1722 in G3588 the G1510.1 being G3588 the G4171 war G303.1 between G3588 the G3624 house G* of Saul, G2532 and G303.1 between G3588 the G3624 house G* of David, G2532 that G* Abner G1510.7.3 was G2902 holding rule G3588 over the G3624 house G* of Saul.
7 G2532 And G3588 to G* Saul G1510.7.3 was G3825.1 a concubine, G2532 and G3686 the name G1473 to her G* was Rizpah, G2364 daughter G* of Aiah. G2532 And G2036 [4said G* 1Ishbosheth G5207 2son G* 3of Saul] G4314 to G* Abner, G5100 Why G3754 is it that G1525 you enter G4314 to G3588 the G3825.1 concubine G3588 G3962 of my father? G1473
8 G2532 And G2373 [2was enraged G4970 3exceedingly G* 1Abner] G4012 on account of G3588 G3056 this word G3778 G3588 G* by Ishbosheth. G2532 And G2036 Abner said G* G4314 to G1473 him, G3361 Am G2776 [3head G2965 2a dog's G1510.2.1 1I] G4160 that I executed G4594 today G1656 mercy G3326 with G3588 the G3624 house G* of Saul G3588 G3962 your father, G1473 G2532 and G4012 with G80 his brethren, G2532 and G4012 with G1107.1 his acquaintances, G1473 G2532 and G3756 did not G844.1 desert G1519 to G3588 the G3624 house G* of David, G2532 that G1934 you seek anxiously G1909 about G1473 me G4012 concerning G93 injustice G1135 to a woman G4594 today?
9 G3592 Thus G4160 may God do G3588 G2316 G3588 G* to Abner, G2532 and G3592 thus G4369 may he add to him G1473 G3754 that G2531 as G3660 the lord swore by an oath G2962 G3588 G* to David, G3754 that G3779 so G4160 I should do the same G1473 to him G1722 in G3588 G2250 this day, G3778
10 G4014 to remove G3588 the G932 kingdom G575 from G3588 the G3624 house G* of Saul, G2532 and G3588 G450 to raise up G3588 the G2362 throne G* of David G1909 over G* Israel, G2532 and G1909 over G3588 G* Judah, G575 from G* Dan G2193 until G* Beer-sheba.
11 G2532 And G3756 [2 was not G1410 3able G2089 4still G* 1Ishbosheth] G470 to answer G3588 G* Abner's G4487 utterance, G575 because of G3588 G5399 fearing G1473 him.
12 G2532 And G649 Abner sent G* G32 messengers G4314 to G* David G1519 in G* Hebron, G3004 saying, G1303 [2ordain G1242 3a covenant G1473 1You] G3326 with G1473 me! G2532 And G2400 behold, G3588 G5495 My hand G1473 G3326 is with G1473 you G1994 to return G4314 to G1473 you G3956 all G* Israel.
13 G2532 And G2036 David said, G* G2573 Well, G1473 I G1303 shall ordain G4314 with G1473 you G1242 a covenant, G4133 except G3056 [2word G1520 1one] G1473 I G154 ask G3844 from G1473 you, G3004 saying, G3756 You shall not G3708 see G3588 G4383 my face, G1473 G1437 if G3361 you do not G71 lead G3588 G* Michal G2364 daughter G* of Saul, G3854 in your coming G1473 G1492 to behold G3588 G4383 my face. G1473
14 G2532 And G1821 David sent G* G4314 [2to G* 3Ishbosheth G5207 4son G* 5of Saul G32 1messengers], G3004 saying, G591 Give back G1473 to me G3588 G1135 my wife G1473 G3588 G* Michal G3739 which G2983 I took G1722 for G1540 a hundred G203 foreskins G246 of Philistines.
15 G2532 And G649 Ishbosheth sent, G* G2532 and G2983 took G1473 her G3844 from G3588 G435 her husband, G1473 G3844 from G* Phaltiel G5207 son G* of Laish.
16 G2532 And G4198 [3went G3588 G435 2husband G1473 1her] G3326 with G1473 her, G4198 going G2532 and G2799 weeping G3694 after G1473 her G2193 unto G* Behurim. G2532 And G2036 [2said G4314 3to G1473 4him G* 1Abner], G4198 Go G390 return! G2532 And G390 he returned.
17 G2532 And G3056 the word G* of Abner G1096 came G4314 to G3588 the G4245 elders G* of Israel, G3004 saying, G5504 Yesterday G2532 and G5154 the third day before G2212 you sought G3588 G* David G936 to reign G1909 over G1473 you.
18 G2532 And G3568 now G4160 act! G3754 for G2962 the lord G2980 spoke G4012 concerning G* David, G3004 saying, G1722 By G5495 the hand G3588 G1401 of my servant G1473 G* David G4982 I will deliver G3588 G2992 my people G1473 G* Israel G1537 from G5495 the hand G3588 of the G246 Philistines, G2532 and G1537 from G5495 the hand G3956 of all G3588 G2190 his enemies. G1473
19 G2532 And G2980 Abner spoke G* G1722 in G3588 the G3775 ears G* of Benjamin. G2532 And G4198 Abner went G* G3588 G2980 to speak G1519 into G3588 the G3775 ears G* of David G1519 in G* Hebron, G3956 all G3745 as much as G700 it pleased G1722 in G3788 the eyes G* of Israel, G2532 and G1722 in G3788 the eyes G3956 of all G3624 the house G* of Benjamin.
20 G2532 And G2064 Abner came G* G4314 to G* David G1519 in G* Hebron, G2532 and G3326 with G1473 him G1501 twenty G435 men. G2532 And G4160 David made G* G3588 [2 to G* 3Abner G2532 4and G3588 5the G435 6men G3588 G3326 7with G1473 8him G4224 1a banquet].
21 G2532 And G2036 Abner said G* G4314 to G* David, G450 I will arise G1211 indeed G2532 and G4198 go, G2532 and G4867 gather together G4314 to G3588 G2962 my master G1473 G3588 the G935 king G3956 all G* Israel; G2532 and G1303 I will ordain G3326 with G1473 you G1242 a covenant, G2532 and G936 you shall reign G1909 over G3956 all G3739 whom G1937 [2desires G3588 G5590 1your soul]. G1473 G2532 And G1821 David sent away G* G3588 G* Abner, G2532 and G4198 he went G1722 in G1515 peace.
22 G2532 And G2400 behold, G3588 the G3816 servants G* of David G2532 and G* Joab G3854 came G575 from G3588 the G1840.3 expedition, G2532 and G4661 [3spoils G4183 2many G5342 1they brought] G3326 with G1438 themselves. G2532 And G* Abner G3756 was not G1510.7.3 G3326 with G* David G1519 in G* Hebron, G3754 for G649 he had sent G1473 him away, G2532 and G4198 he went G1722 in G1515 peace.
23 G2532 And G* Joab, G2532 and G3956 all G3588 the G4756 military, G3588 the one G3326 with G1473 him, G2064 came. G2532 And G518 they reported G3588 to G* Joab, G3004 saying, G2240 [4comes G* 1Abner G5207 2son G* 3of Ner] G4314 to G* David, G2532 and G649 he has sent G1473 him, G2532 and G565 he went forth G1722 in G1515 peace.
24 G2532 And G1525 Joab entered G* G4314 to G3588 the G935 king, G2532 and G2036 he said G1473 to him, G5100 What G3778 is this G4160 you did? G2400 Behold, G2064 Abner came G* G4314 to G1473 you, G2532 and G2444 why G1821 have you sent him away, G1473 G2532 and G565 he has gone forth G1722 in G1515 peace?
25 G2228 Or G3756 do you not G1492 know G3588 the G2549 evil G* of Abner G5207 son G* of Ner, G3754 that G538 [2to deceive G1473 3you G3854 1he came], G2532 and G1097 to know G3588 G1529 your entering G1473 G2532 and G3588 G1841 your exiting, G1473 G2532 and G1097 to know G537 all together G3745 as much as G1473 you G4160 do?
26 G2532 And G1831 Joab went G* G575 from G* David, G2532 and G649 sent G32 messengers G3694 after G* Abner, G2532 and G1994 they returned G1473 him G575 from G3588 the G5421 well G* of Sirah; G2532 and G* David G3756 did not G1492 know.
27 G2532 And G1994 Abner returned G3588 G* G1519 to G* Hebron, G2532 and G1578 [2turned G1473 3him G* 1Joab] G1537 from G4104.4 the side G3588 of the G4439 gate G2980 to speak G4314 to G1473 him G1748 laying in wait. G2532 And G3960 he struck G1473 him G1563 there G1519 in G3588 the G5589.1 flank, G2532 and G599 he died G1722 for G3588 the G129 blood G* [2Asahel G3588 G80 1of his brother]. G1473
28 G2532 And G191 David heard G* G3326 about G3778 these things, G2532 and G2036 he said, G121 [2am innocent G1510.2.1 G1473 1I] G2532 and G3588 G932 my kingdom G1473 G575 from G2962 the lord G2532 and G2193 unto G165 the eon G575 of G3588 the G129 blood G* of Abner G5207 son G* of Ner.
29 G2658 Let it arrive G1909 upon G2776 the head G* of Joab, G2532 and G1909 upon G3956 all G3588 the G3624 house G3588 G3962 of his father! G1473 G2532 and G3361 may there not G1587 cease to be G1537 one from G3588 the G3624 house G* of Joab G1118.1 having gonorrhea, G2532 and G3015 leprous, G2532 and G2902 holding G4661.2 a stave, G2532 and G4098 falling G1722 by G4501 the broadsword, G2532 and G1639.2 lacking G740 bread loaves.
30 G* For Joab G1161 G2532 and G* Abishai G3588 G80 his brother G1473 G1301 observed G3588 G* Abner, G446.2 because G2289 he killed G3588 G* Asahel G3588 G80 their brother G1473 G1722 in G* Gibeon G1722 in G3588 the G4171 battle.
31 G2532 And G2036 David said G* G4314 to G* Joab, G2532 and G4314 to G3956 all G3588 the G2992 people G3588 G3326 with G1473 him, G1284 Tear G3588 G2440 your clothes, G1473 G2532 and G4024 gird on G4526 sackcloths, G2532 and G2875 lament G1715 before G* Abner! G2532 And G3588 G935 king G* David G4198 went G3694 behind G3588 the G2825 bier.
32 G2532 And G2290 they entombed G3588 G* Abner G1722 in G* Hebron, G2532 and G142 [3lifted G3588 1the G935 2king] G3588 G5456 his voice G1473 G2532 and G2799 wept G1909 over G3588 the G5028 tomb G* of Abner, G2532 and G2799 [4wept G3956 1all G3588 2the G2992 3people].
33 G2532 And G2354 [3lamented G3588 1the G935 2king] G1909 over G* Abner, G2532 and G2036 said, G1487 Shall G2596 [3according to G3588 4the G2288 5death G* 6of Nabal G599 2die G* 1Abner], no .
34 G3588 G5495 Your hands G1473 G3756 were not G1210 tied, G3761 nor G3588 G4228 your feet not G1473 G1722 in G3976 shackles; G3756 you did not G4317 lead G5613 as G* Nabal; G1799 [2in the presence G5207 3of a son G93 4of injustice G4098 1you fell]. G2532 And G4863 [4were brought together G3956 1all G3588 2the G2992 3people] G3588 G2799 to weep G1473 for him.
35 G2532 And G2064 [4came G3956 1all G3588 2the G2992 3people] G4018.4 to cause [2to eat 4at the wake G3588 G* 1David G740 3bread loaves] G2089 still G1510.6 being G2250 day. G2532 And G3660 David swore by an oath, G* G3004 saying, G3592 Thus G4160 may [2do G1473 3to me G3588 G2316 1God], G2532 and G3592 thus G4369 may he add yet more, G3754 that G1437 until G3361 [3should G1416 4go down G3588 1the G2246 2sun], G3766.2 in no way G1089 shall I taste G740 bread G3761 nor G3956 any G5100 thing.
36 G2532 And G3956 all G3588 the G2992 people G1097 knew. G2532 And G700 it was pleasing G1799 before G1473 them, G3956 all G3745 as much as G4160 [3did G3588 1the G935 2king] G1799 in the presence of G3956 all G3588 the G2992 people.
37 G2532 And G1097 [4knew G3956 1all G3588 2the G2992 3people], G2532 and G3956 all G* Israel G1722 in G3588 G2250 that day, G1565 G3754 that G3756 [6happened not G1096 G3844 7by G3588 8the G935 9king G3588 1the G2289 2putting to death G3588 G* 3of Abner G5207 4son G* 5of Ner].
38 G2532 And G2036 [3said G3588 1the G935 2king] G4314 to G3588 G3816 his servants, G1473 G3756 Do you not G1492 know G3754 that G2233 a leader, G2532 and G3173 a great one G4098 has fallen G1722 in G3588 G2250 this day G3778 G1722 in G3588 G* Israel?
39 G2532 And G3754 that G1473 I G1510.2.1 am G4773 as a relative G4594 today, G2532 and G2525 one being placed G1519 for G935 king. G3588 G1161 But G435 these men, G3778 G3588 the G5207 sons G* of Zeruiah G4642 [2hard G1473 3for me G1510.2.6 1are]. G467 The lord should recompense G2962 G3588 to the G4160 one doing G3588 the G4190 wicked things G2596 according to G3588 G2549 his evil. G1473
