And Joab returned from following Abner: and when he had gathered all the people together , there lacked of David's servants nineteen men and Asahel.
Then was Abner very wroth for the words of Ishbosheth, and said , Am I a dog's head, which against Judah do shew kindness this day unto the house of Saul thy father, to his brethren, and to his friends, and have not delivered thee into the hand of David, that thou chargest me to day with a fault concerning this woman?
And David numbered the people that were with him, and set captains of thousands and captains of hundreds over them.
For the king said to Joab the captain of the host, which was with him, Go now through all the tribes of Israel, from Dan even to Beersheba, and number ye the people, that I may know the number of the people.
Notwithstanding the king's word prevailed against Joab, and against the captains of the host. And Joab and the captains of the host went out from the presence of the king, to number the people of Israel.
