20 "You came only yesterday, and shall I today make you wander with us, while 1I go where I will? Return and take back your brothers ; 2mercy and atruth be with you." 21 But Ittai answered the king and said, "As the LORD lives, and as my lord the king lives, surely 3wherever my lord the king may be, whether for death or for life, there also your servant will be." 22 Therefore David said to Ittai, "Go and pass over." So Ittai the Gittite passed over with all his men and all the little ones who were with him. 23 While all the country was weeping with a loud voice, all the people passed over. The king also passed over 4the brook Kidron, and all the people passed over toward 5the way of the wilderness. 24 Now behold, 6Zadok also came, and all the Levites with him 7carrying the ark of the covenant of God. And they set down the ark of God, and 8Abiathar came up until all the people had finished passing from the city. 25 The king said to Zadok, "Return the ark of God to the city. If I find favor in the sight of the LORD, then 9He will bring me back again and show me both it and 10His habitation. 26 "But if He should say thus, '11I have no delight in you,' behold, here I am, 12let Him do to me as seems good bto Him." 27 The king said also to Zadok the priest, "Are you not 13a seer ? Return to the city in peace and your 14two sons with you, your son Ahimaaz and Jonathan the son of Abiathar. 28 "See, I am going to wait 15at the fords of the wilderness until word comes from you to inform me." 29 Therefore Zadok and Abiathar returned the ark of God to Jerusalem and remained there. 30 And David went up the ascent of the Mount of Olives, and wept as he went, and 16his head was covered and he walked 17barefoot. Then all the people who were with him each covered his head and went up weeping as they went.
