2 Samuel 19:30-39

MKJV(i) 30 And Mephibosheth said to the king, Yes, let him take all, because my lord the king has come in peace to his own house. 31 And Barzillai of Gilead came down from Rogelim, and went over Jordan with the king to conduct him over Jordan. 32 And Barzillai was a very aged man, eighty years old. And he had provided food for the king while he abode at Mahanaim, for he was a very great man. 33 And the king said to Barzillai, Come over with me and I will sustain you with me in Jerusalem. 34 And Barzillai said to the king, How long do I have to live, that I should go up with the king to Jerusalem? 35 I am eighty years old today, and can I discern between good and evil? Can your servant taste what I eat or what I drink? Can I any more hear the voice of singing men and singing women? Why then should your servant be still a burden to my lord the king? 36 Your servant will go a little way over Jordan with the king. And why should the king repay me with such a reward? 37 Please let your servant return so that I may die in my own city by the grave of my father and of my mother. But behold your servant Chimham, let him go over with my lord the king. And do to him what shall seem good to you. 38 And the king answered, Chimham shall go over with me, and I will do to him that which shall seem good to you. And whatever you shall ask of me, that I will do for you. 39 And all the people went over Jordan. And when the king had come over, the king kissed Barzillai, and blessed him. And he returned to his place.
