    King James Bible - 2 Samuel 18:9

    And Absalom met the servants of David. And Absalom rode upon a mule, and the mule went under the thick boughs of a great oak, and his head caught hold of the oak, and he was taken up between the heaven and the earth; and the mule that was under him went away.

    World English Bible

    Absalom happened to meet the servants of David. Absalom was
    riding on his mule, and the mule went under the thick boughs of a great oak, and his head caught hold of the oak, and he was taken up between the sky and earth; and the mule that was under him went on.

    Douay-Rheims - 2 Samuel 18:9

    And it happened that Absalom met he servants of David,
    riding on a mule: and as the mule went under a thick and large oak, his head stuck in the oak: and while he hung between the heaven and he earth, the mule on which he rode passed on.

    Webster's Bible Translation

    And Absalom met the servants of David. And Absalom rode upon a mule, and the mule went under the thick boughs of a great oak, and his
    head caught hold of the oak, and he was suspended between the heaven and the earth; and the mule that was under him went away.

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 18:9

    ¶ Y Absalón se encontró con los siervos de David; e iba Absalón sobre un mulo, y el mulo se entró debajo de un espeso y grande alcornoque, y se le asió la cabeza al alcornoque, y quedó entre el cielo y la tierra; pues el mulo en que iba pasó delante.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 2 Samuel 18:9

    Verse 9. And his
    head caught hold of the oak] It has been supposed that Absalom was caught by the hair, but no such thing is intimated in the text.

    Probably his neck was caught in the fork of a strong bough, and he was nearly dead when Joab found him; for it is said, 2 Samuel xviii. 14, he was yet alive, an expression which intimates he was nearly dead.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 9. And Absalom met the servants of David , etc.] When his army was routed, he was in such a fright that he knew not which way to flee, and instead of flying from David’s men, he fled in the way of them; but none of them attempted to slay him, nor even to stop him, but let him pass by them, knowing David’s charge concerning him: and Absalom rode upon a mule ; as was common for great personages to do in those days, ( 2 Samuel 13:29); and the mule went under the thick boughs of a great oak ; and running full speed, Absalom could not guide him, nor stop, nor divert him from going under it: and his head caught hold of the oak ; either the hair of his head was twisted and entangled in the thick boughs of the oak; or rather his head was jammed into a forked branch of the oak: and he was taken up between the heaven and the earth ; hung in the air between both, as unworthy to live in either: and the mule that [was] under him went away ; and left him hanging in the oak.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 9-18 - Let young people look upon
    Absalom, hanging on a tree, accursed forsaken of heaven and earth; there let them read the Lord's abhorrenc of rebellion against parents. Nothing can preserve men from misery an contempt, but heavenly wisdom and the grace of God.
