- 14 Now he went through all the tribes of Israel to Abel, even Beth-maacah, and all the Berites; and they were gathered together and also went after him. 15 They came and besieged him in Abel R620 Beth-maacah, and they R621 cast F253 up a siege ramp against the city, and it stood by the rampart; and all the people who were with Joab were wreaking destruction in order to topple the wall. 16 Then a R622 wise woman called from the city, "Hear, hear! Please tell Joab, `Come here that I may speak with you.' " 17 So he approached her, and the woman said, "Are you Joab?" And he answered, "I am." Then she said to him, "Listen to the words of your maidservant." And he answered, "I am listening." 18 Then she spoke, saying, "Formerly they used to say, `They will surely ask advice at Abel,' and thus they ended the dispute. 19 "I am of those who are peaceable and faithful in Israel. You R623 are seeking to destroy a city, even a mother in Israel. Why would you swallow up the R624 inheritance of the LORD?" 20 Joab replied, "Far be it, far be it from me that I should swallow up or destroy! 21 "Such is not the case. But a man from the R625 hill country of Ephraim, Sheba R626 the son of Bichri by name, has lifted up his hand against King David. Only hand him over, and I will depart from the city." And the woman said to Joab, "Behold, his head will be thrown to you over the wall." 22 Then the woman wisely R627 came to all the people. And they cut off the head of Sheba the son of Bichri and threw it to Joab. So he R628 blew the trumpet, and they were dispersed from the city, each to his tent. Joab also returned to the king at Jerusalem.
