    17:1 Moreover Ahithophel 302 said 559 8799 unto Absalom 53, Let me now choose out 977 8799 twelve 8147 6240 thousand 505 men 376, and I will arise 6965 8799 and pursue 7291 8799 after 310 David 1732 this night 3915:

    17:2 And I will come 935 8799 upon him while he [is] weary 3023 and weak 7504 handed 3027, and will make him afraid 2729 8689: and all the people 5971 that [are] with him shall flee 5127 8804; and I will smite 5221 8689 the king 4428 only:

    17:3 And I will bring back 7725 8686 all the people 5971 unto thee: the man 376 whom thou seekest 1245 8764 [is] as if all returned 7725 8800: [so] all the people 5971 shall be in peace 7965.

    17:4 And the saying 1697 pleased 3474 8799 Absalom 53 well 5869, and all the elders 2205 of Israel 3478.(pleased…: Heb. was right in the eyes of, etc)

    17:5 Then said 559 8799 Absalom 53, Call 7121 8798 now Hushai 2365 the Archite 757 also, and let us hear 8085 8799 likewise what he saith 6310.(what…: Heb. what is in his mouth)

    17:6 And when Hushai 2365 was come 935 8799 to Absalom 53, Absalom 53 spake 559 8799 unto him, saying 559 8800, Ahithophel 302 hath spoken 1696 8765 after this manner 1697: shall we do 6213 8799 [after] his saying 1697? if not; speak 1696 8761 thou.(his saying: Heb. his word)

    17:7 And Hushai 2365 said 559 8799 unto Absalom 53, The counsel 6098 that Ahithophel 302 hath given 3289 8804 [is] not good 2896 at this time 6471.(given: Heb. counselled)

    17:8 For, said 559 8799 Hushai 2365, thou knowest 3045 8804 thy father 1 and his men 582, that they [be] mighty men 1368, and they [be] chafed 4751 in their minds 5315, as a bear 1677 robbed 7909 of her whelps in the field 7704: and thy father 1 [is] a man 376 of war 4421, and will not lodge 3885 8799 with the people 5971.(chafed…: Heb. bitter of soul)

    17:9 Behold, he is hid 2244 8737 now in some 259 pit 6354, or in some 259 [other] place 4725: and it will come to pass, when some of them be overthrown 5307 8800 at the first 8462, that whosoever 8085 8802 heareth 8085 8804 it will say 559 8804, There is a slaughter 4046 among the people 5971 that follow 310 Absalom 53.(overthrown: Heb. fallen)

    17:10 And he also [that is] valiant 1121 2428, whose heart 3820 [is] as the heart 3820 of a lion 738, shall utterly 4549 8736 melt 4549 8735: for all Israel 3478 knoweth 3045 8802 that thy father 1 [is] a mighty man 1368, and [they] which [be] with him [are] valiant 2428 men 1121.

    17:11 Therefore I counsel 3289 8804 that all Israel 3478 be generally 622 8736 gathered 622 8735 unto thee, from Dan 1835 even to Beersheba 884, as the sand 2344 that [is] by the sea 3220 for multitude 7230; and that thou go 1980 8802 to battle 7128 in thine own person 6440.(that thou…: Heb. that thy face, or, presence go, etc)

    17:12 So shall we come 935 8804 upon him in some 259 place 4725 where he shall be found 4672 8738, and we will light 5168 upon him as the dew 2919 falleth 5307 8799 on the ground 127: and of him and of all the men 582 that [are] with him there shall not be left 3498 8738 so much as 1571 one 259.

    17:13 Moreover, if 518 he be gotten 622 8735 into a city 5892, then shall all Israel 3478 bring 5375 8689 ropes 2256 to that city 5892, and we will draw 5498 8804 it into the river 5158, until there be not one 1571 small stone 6872 found 4672 8738 there.

    17:14 And Absalom 53 and all the men 376 of Israel 3478 said 559 8799, The counsel 6098 of Hushai 2365 the Archite 757 [is] better 2896 than the counsel 6098 of Ahithophel 302. For the LORD 3068 had appointed 6680 8765 to defeat 6565 8687 the good 2896 counsel 6098 of Ahithophel 302, to the intent 5668 that the LORD 3068 might bring 935 8687 evil 7451 upon Absalom 53.(appointed: Heb. commanded)

    17:15 Then said 559 8799 Hushai 2365 unto Zadok 6659 and to Abiathar 54 the priests 3548, Thus and thus did Ahithophel 302 counsel 3289 8804 Absalom 53 and the elders 2205 of Israel 3478; and thus and thus have I counselled 3289 8804.

    17:16 Now therefore send 7971 8798 quickly 4120, and tell 5046 8685 David 1732, saying 559 8800, Lodge 3885 8799 not this night 3915 in the plains 6160 8675 5679 of the wilderness 4057, but speedily 5674 8800 pass over 5674 8799; lest the king 4428 be swallowed up 1104 8792, and all the people 5971 that [are] with him.

    17:17 Now Jonathan 3083 and Ahimaaz 290 stayed 5975 8802 by Enrogel 5883; for they might 3201 8799 not be seen 7200 8736 to come 935 8800 into the city 5892: and a wench 8198 went 1980 8804 and told 5046 8689 them; and they went 3212 8799 and told 5046 8689 king 4428 David 1732.

    17:18 Nevertheless a lad 5288 saw 7200 8799 them, and told 5046 8686 Absalom 53: but they went 3212 8799 both 8147 of them away quickly 4120, and came 935 8799 to a man's 376 house 1004 in Bahurim 980, which had a well 875 in his court 2691; whither 8033 they went down 3381 8799.

    17:19 And the woman 802 took 3947 8799 and spread 6566 8799 a covering 4539 over the well's 875 mouth 6440, and spread 7849 8799 ground corn 7383 thereon; and the thing 1697 was not known 3045 8738.

    17:20 And when Absalom's 53 servants 5650 came 935 8799 to the woman 802 to the house 1004, they said 559 8799, Where [is] Ahimaaz 290 and Jonathan 3083? And the woman 802 said 559 8799 unto them, They be gone over 5674 8804 the brook 4323 of water 4325. And when they had sought 1245 8762 and could not find 4672 8804 [them], they returned 7725 8799 to Jerusalem 3389.

    17:21 And it came to pass, after 310 they were departed 3212 8800, that they came up 5927 8799 out of the well 875, and went 3212 8799 and told 5046 8686 king 4428 David 1732, and said 559 8799 unto David 1732, Arise 6965 8798, and pass quickly 4120 over 5674 8798 the water 4325: for thus hath Ahithophel 302 counselled 3289 8804 against you.

    17:22 Then David 1732 arose 6965 8799, and all the people 5971 that [were] with him, and they passed over 5674 8799 Jordan 3383: by the morning 1242 light 216 there lacked 5737 8738 not one 259 of them that was not gone over 5674 8804 Jordan 3383.

    17:23 And when Ahithophel 302 saw 7200 8804 that his counsel 6098 was not followed 6213 8738, he saddled 2280 8799 [his] ass 2543, and arose 6965 8799, and gat him home 3212 8799 to his house 1004, to his city 5892, and put his household 1004 in order 6680 8762, and hanged 2614 8735 himself, and died 4191 8799, and was buried 6912 8735 in the sepulchre 6913 of his father 1.(followed: Heb. done)(put his…: Heb. gave charge concerning his house)

    17:24 Then David 1732 came 935 8804 to Mahanaim 4266. And Absalom 53 passed over 5674 8804 Jordan 3383, he and all the men 376 of Israel 3478 with him.

    17:25 And Absalom 53 made 7760 8804 Amasa 6021 captain of the host 6635 instead of Joab 3097: which Amasa 6021 [was] a man's 376 son 1121, whose name 8034 [was] Ithra 3501 an Israelite 3481, that went in 935 8804 to Abigail 26 the daughter 1323 of Nahash 5176, sister 269 to Zeruiah 6870 Joab's 3097 mother 517.

    17:26 So Israel 3478 and Absalom 53 pitched 2583 8799 in the land 776 of Gilead 1568.

    17:27 And it came to pass, when David 1732 was come 935 8800 to Mahanaim 4266, that Shobi 7629 the son 1121 of Nahash 5176 of Rabbah 7237 of the children 1121 of Ammon 5983, and Machir 4353 the son 1121 of Ammiel 5988 of Lodebar 3810, and Barzillai 1271 the Gileadite 1569 of Rogelim 7274,

    17:28 Brought 5066 8689 beds 4904, and basons 5592, and earthen 3335 8802 vessels 3627, and wheat 2406, and barley 8184, and flour 7058, and parched 7039 [corn], and beans 6321, and lentiles 5742, and parched 7039 [pulse],(basons: or, cups)

    17:29 And honey 1706, and butter 2529, and sheep 6629, and cheese 8194 of kine 1241, for David 1732, and for the people 5971 that [were] with him, to eat 398 8800: for they said 559 8804, The people 5971 [is] hungry 7457, and weary 5889, and thirsty 6771, in the wilderness 4057.
