Judges 9:1-3

Thomson(i) 1 For when Abimelech, son of Jerobaal, went to Sychem, to his mother's brethren, and spoke to them, and to all the relations of the house of his mother's father, saying, 2 Speak I pray you in the hearing of all the men of Sychem, Which is best for you; that seventy men, even all the sons of Jerobaal, should rule over you; or that one man should rule over you? Remember also that I am your bone and your flesh, 3 his mother's brethren spoke all these words for him in the hearing of the men of Sychem, and their heart inclined to follow Abimelech; for they said, He is our brother.
