2 Samuel Chapter 15
1Absalom by fair speeches and courtesies stealeth the hearts of the men of Israel. 7Under pretence of a vow he obtaineth leave to go to Hebron: 10where he formeth a dangerous conspiracy. 13Upon the news David fleeth from Jerusalem: 19Ittai, though a stranger, will not leave him. 24Zadok and Abiathar are sent back with the ark. 30David and his company go up mount Olivet weeping. 31He prayeth God to defeat Ahithophel's counsel. 32Hushai is sent back with instructions how to act for David's service.
