“Otherwyse, I should haue wrought falshood against mine owne life: for there is no matter hid from the King, and thou thy selfe wouldest haue set thy selfe against me.”

King James Version (KJV)

2 Samuel 18:13

10. And a certaine man saw it, and told Ioab, and said, Behold, I saw Absalom hanged in an Oke. 11. And Ioab said vnto the man that told him, And behold, thou sawest him, and why didst thou not smite him there to the ground, and I would haue giuen thee tenne shekels of siluer, and a girdle? 12. And the man saide vnto Ioab, Though I should receiue a thousand shekels of siluer in mine hand, yet would I not put foorth mine hand against the Kings sonne: for in our hearing the King charged thee, and Abishai, and Ittai, saying, Beware that none touch the yong man Absalom. 13. Otherwyse, I should haue wrought falshood against mine owne life: for there is no matter hid from the King, and thou thy selfe wouldest haue set thy selfe against me. 14. Then said Ioab, I may not tary thus with thee. And hee tooke three darts in his hand, and thrust them thorow the heart of Absalom, while hee was yet aliue in the midst of the Oke. 15. And ten yong men that bare Ioabs armour, compassed about and smote Absalom, and slew him. 16. And Ioab blew the trumpet, and the people returned from pursuing after Israel: for Ioab helde backe the people.
