2 Samuel 14:9
“And the woman of Tekoah said vnto the king, My lord, O king, the iniquitie bee on mee, and on my fathers house: and the king and his throne bee guiltlesse.”
King James Version (KJV)
2 Samuel 14:9
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. 8. And the king saide vnto the woman, Goe to thine house, and I will giue charge concerning thee. 9. And the woman of Tekoah said vnto the king, My lord, O king, the iniquitie bee on mee, and on my fathers house: and the king and his throne bee guiltlesse. 10. And the king said, Whosoeuer saith ought vnto thee, bring him to mee, and he shall not touch thee any more. 11. Then said she, I pray thee, let the king remember the Lord thy God, that thou wouldest not suffer the reuengers of blood to destroy any more, lest they destroy my sonne. And he said, As the Lord liueth, there shall not one haire of thy sonne fall to the earth. 12. Then the woman said, Let thine handmayd, I pray thee, speake one word vnto my lord the king. And hee said, Say on.
