King James Version (KJV) New International Version (NIV)
26 And unto Abiathar the priest said the king, Get thee to Anathoth, unto thine own fields; for thou art worthy of death: but I will not at this time put thee to death , because thou barest the ark of the Lord GOD before David my father, and because thou hast been afflicted in all wherein my father was afflicted . 26 To Abiathar the priest the king said, "Go back to your fields in Anathoth. You deserve to die, but I will not put you to death now, because you carried the ark of the Sovereign LORD before my father David and shared all my father's hardships."
