King James Version (KJV)

2 Samuel 14:4

1. Now Ioab the sonne of Zeruiah, perceiued that the kings heart was toward Absalom. 2. And Ioab sent to Tekoah, and fetcht thence a wise woman, and said vnto her, I pray thee, faine thy selfe to be a mourner, and put on now mourning apparel, and anoint not thy selfe with oile, but be as a woman that had a long time mourned for the dead: 3. And come to the king, and speake on this maner vnto him: so Ioab put the words in her mouth. 4. ¶ And when the woman of Tekoah spake to the king, shee fell on her face to the ground, and did obeysance, and said, Helpe, O king. 5. And the king said vnto her, What aileth thee? And she answered, I am indeed a widow woman, and mine husband is dead. 6. And thy handmayd had two sonnes, and they two stroue together in the field, and there was none to part them, but the one smote the other, and slew him. 7. And behold, the whole family is risen against thine handmayd, and they said, Deliuer him that smote his brother, that we may kill him, for the life of his brother whom he slew, and we will destroy the heire also: and so they shall quench my cole which is left, and shall not leaue to my husband neither name nor remainder vpon the earth.
