10"So I stood beside him and killed him, because I knew that he could not live after he had fallen. And I took the crown which was on his head and the bracelet which was on his arm, and I have brought them here to my lord ."
26Then Abner called to Joab and said, "Shall the sword devour forever? Do you not know that it will be bitter in the end? How long will you refrain from telling the people to turn back from following their brothers?"
25"You know Abner the son of Ner, that he came to deceive you and to learn of your going out and coming in and to find out all that you are doing."26When Joab came out from David, he sent messengers after Abner, and they brought him back from the well of Sirah; but David did not know it.
37So all the people and all Israel understood that day that it had not been the will of the king to put Abner the son of Ner to death.38Then the king said to his servants, "Do you not know that a prince and a great man has fallen this day in Israel?
22Joab fell on his face to the ground, prostrated himself and blessed the king; then Joab said, "Today your servant knows that I have found favor in your sight, O my lord , the king, in that the king has performed the request of his servant."
8Moreover, Hushai said, "You know your father and his men, that they are mighty men and they are fierce , like a bear robbed of her cubs in the field. And your father is an expert in warfare, and will not spend the night with the people.
10"And even the one who is valiant , whose heart is like the heart of a lion, will completely lose heart; for all Israel knows that your father is a mighty man and those who are with him are valiant men.
6by loving those who hate you, and by hating those who love you. For you have shown today that princes and servants are nothing to you; for I know this day that if Absalom were alive and all of us were dead today, then you would be pleased .
22David then said, "What have I to do with you, O sons of Zeruiah, that you should this day be an adversary to me? Should any man be put to death in Israel today? For do I not know that I am king over Israel today?"
35"I am now eighty years old. Can I distinguish between good and bad? Or can your servant taste what I eat or what I drink? Or can I hear anymore the voice of singing men and women? Why then should your servant be an added burden to my lord the king?
2The king said to Joab the commander of the army who was with him, "Go about now through all the tribes of Israel, from Dan to Beersheba, and register the people, that I may know the number of the people."
13So Gad came to David and told him, and said to him, "Shall seven years of famine come to you in your land? Or will you flee three months before your foes while they pursue you? Or shall there be three days' pestilence in your land? Now consider and see what answer I shall return to Him who sent me."
