2 Samuel 20:23

20. And Ioab answered and saide, Farre be it, farre be it from me, that I should swallow vp or destroy. 21. The matter is not so: but a man of mount Ephraim (Sheba the sonne of Bichri by name) hath lift vp his hand against the king, euen against Dauid: deliuer him onely, and I will depart from the city. And the woman said vnto Ioab, Behold, his head shall be throwen to thee ouer the wall. 22. Then the woman went vnto all the people in her wisedome, and they cut off the head of Sheba the sonne of Bichri, and cast it out to Ioab: and hee blew a trumpet, and they retired from the citie, euery man to his tent: & Ioab returned to Ierusalem vnto the king. 23. ¶ Now Ioab was ouer all the hoste of Israel, and Benaiah the sonne of Iehoiada was ouer the Cherethites, and ouer the Pelethites. 24. And Adoram was ouer the tribute, and Iehoshaphat the sonne of Ahilud was Recorder. 25. And Sheua was scribe, and Zadok, and Abiathar were the Priests. 26. And Ira also the Iairite, was a chiefe ruler about Dauid.
