2 Samuel 10:9-14

Great(i) 9 When Ioab saw that the front of the battell was agaynst hym before and after, he chose of all the fresh young men of Israell, & put them in araye agaynst the Syrians. 10 And the rest of the people he delyuered into the hand of Abisay hys brother, that he myght put them in araye agaynst the children of Ammon. 11 And be sayd, yf the Sirians be stronger then I, thou shalt helpe me. But yf the chyldren of Ammon be to strong for the, I will come and succoure the. 12 Therfore quyte the lyke a man, & let vs stonde stiff for oure people, & for the cities of oure God. And the Lord do that which is good in his owne eyes. 13 And Ioab proceded forth, & the people that was with hym, to fight with the Sirians. But they fled before him. 14 And when the children of Ammon saw that the Sirians were fled, then fled they also before Abisay, and entred into the citye. And so Ioab returned from the children of Ammon, & came to Ierusalem.
