“¶ And the children of Beniamin gathered themselues together after Abner, and became one troupe, and stood on the top of an hill.”

King James Version (KJV)

2 Samuel 2:25

22. And Abner said againe to Asahel, Turne thee aside from following me: Wherefore should I smite thee to the ground? how then should I holde vp my face to Ioab thy brother? 23. Howbeit he refused to turne aside: wherefore Abner with the hinder ende of the speare smote him vnder the fift ribbe, that the speare came out behinde him, and hee fell downe there, and died in the same place: and it came to passe, that as many as came to the place where Asahel fell downe and died, stood still. 24. Ioab also and Abishai pursued after Abner: and the Sunne went downe when they were come to the hill of Ammah, that lieth before Giah by the way of the wildernesse of Gibeon. 25. ¶ And the children of Beniamin gathered themselues together after Abner, and became one troupe, and stood on the top of an hill. 26. Then Abner called to Ioab, and said, Shall the sword deuoure for euer? Knowest thou not that it wil be bitternesse in the latter end? How long shall it bee then, yer thou bid the people returne from following their brethren? 27. And Ioab said, As God liueth, vnlesse thou hadst spoken, surely then in the morning the people had gone vp euery one from following his brother. 28. So Ioab blew a trumpet, and all the people stood still, and pursued after Israel no more, neither fought they any more.
