2 Samuel 19:30-39

Leeser(i) 30 (19:31) And Mephibosheth said unto the king, Yea, let him take the whole, since that my Lord the king is come back in peace unto his own house. 31 (19:32) And Barzillai the Gil’adite came down from Rogelim; and he passed over the Jordan with the king, to accompany him over the Jordan. 32 (19:33) Now Barzillai was very aged, eighty years old: and he had sustained the king while he lay at Machanayim; for he was a very great man. 33 (19:34) And the king said unto Barzillai, Come thou over with me, and I will sustain thee near me in Jerusalem. 34 (19:35) But Barzillai said unto the king, How many yet are the days of the years of my life, that I should go up with the king to Jerusalem? 35 (19:36) I am eighty years old this day: can I discern between good and evil? or can thy servant taste what I eat or what I drink? or can I listen yet to the voice of singing men and singing women? wherefore then should thy servant become yet a burden unto my Lord the king? 36 (19:37) Thy servant will pass a little way over the Jordan with the king: and why should the king recompense me with this reward? 37 (19:38) Let thy servant, I pray thee, turn back again, that I may die in my own city, by the sepulchre of my father and of my mother. But, behold, thy servant Kimham will pass over with my Lord the king; and do to him what is good in thy eyes. 38 (19:39) And the king said, Kimham shall pass over with me, and I will do to him that which shall seem good in thy eyes: and whatsoever thou wilt desire of me, will I do for thee. 39 (19:40) And all the people passed over the Jordan, after the king had passed over; and the king kissed Barzillai, and blessed him; and he returned unto his own place.
