2 Samuel 3:28-39

NAS 28 Afterward when David heard it, he said, "I and my kingdom are innocent before the LORD forever of the blood of Abner the son of Ner. NIV 28 Later, when David heard about this, he said, “I and my kingdom are forever innocent before the LORD concerning the blood of Abner son of Ner. NAS 29 "May it fall on the head of Joab and on all his father's house; and may there not fail from the house of Joab one who has a discharge, or who is a leper, or who takes hold of a distaff, or who falls by the sword, or who lacks bread." NIV 29 May his blood fall on the head of Joab and on his whole family! May Joab’s family never be without someone who has a running sore or leprosy or who leans on a crutch or who falls by the sword or who lacks food.” NAS 30 So Joab and Abishai his brother killed Abner because he had put their brother Asahel to death in the battle at Gibeon. NIV 30 (Joab and his brother Abishai murdered Abner because he had killed their brother Asahel in the battle at Gibeon.) NAS 31 Then David said to Joab and to all the people who were with him, "Tear your clothes and gird on sackcloth and lament before Abner." And King David walked behind the bier. NIV 31 Then David said to Joab and all the people with him, “Tear your clothes and put on sackcloth and walk in mourning in front of Abner.” King David himself walked behind the bier. NAS 32 Thus they buried Abner in Hebron; and the king lifted up his voice and wept at the grave of Abner, and all the people wept. NIV 32 They buried Abner in Hebron, and the king wept aloud at Abner’s tomb. All the people wept also. NAS 33 The king chanted a lament for Abner and said, "Should Abner die as a fool dies? NIV 33 The king sang this lament for Abner: “Should Abner have died as the lawless die? NAS 34 "Your hands were not bound, nor your feet put in fetters; As one falls before the wicked , you have fallen." And all the people wept again over him. NIV 34 Your hands were not bound, your feet were not fettered. You fell as one falls before the wicked.” And all the people wept over him again. NAS 35 Then all the people came to persuade David to eat bread while it was still day; but David vowed, saying, "May God do so to me, and more also, if I taste bread or anything else before the sun goes down." NIV 35 Then they all came and urged David to eat something while it was still day; but David took an oath, saying, “May God deal with me, be it ever so severely, if I taste bread or anything else before the sun sets!” NAS 36 Now all the people took note of it, and it pleased them, just as everything the king did pleased all the people. NIV 36 All the people took note and were pleased; indeed, everything the king did pleased them. NAS 37 So 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. NIV 37 So on that day all the people there and all Israel knew that the king had no part in the murder of Abner son of Ner. NAS 38 Then the king said to his servants, "Do you not know that a prince and a great man has fallen this day in Israel? NIV 38 Then the king said to his men, “Do you not realize that a commander and a great man has fallen in Israel this day? NAS 39 "I am weak today, though anointed king; and these men the sons of Zeruiah are too difficult for me. May the LORD repay the evildoer according to his evil." NIV 39 And today, though I am the anointed king, I am weak, and these sons of Zeruiah are too strong for me. May the LORD repay the evildoer according to his evil deeds!”
