||New International Version (NIV)
4 In spite of what Joab said, the king's word had more authority than Joab's word did. So Joab left and went all through Israel. Then he came back to Jerusalem.
4 The king's word, however, overruled Joab; so Joab left and went throughout Israel and then came back to Jerusalem.
