- 50 Then Abimelech went to Thebez, and he camped against Thebez and captured it. 51 But there was a strong tower in the center of the city, and all the men and women with all the leaders of the city fled there and shut themselves in; and they went up on the roof of the tower. 52 So Abimelech came to the tower and fought against it, and approached the entrance of the tower to burn it with fire. 53 But a R218 certain woman threw an upper millstone on Abimelech's head, crushing his skull. 54 Then he R219 called quickly to the young man, his armor bearer, and said to him, "Draw your sword and kill me, so that it will not be said of me, `A woman slew him.' " So the F183 young man pierced him through, and he died. 55 When the men of Israel saw that Abimelech was dead, each departed to his home. F184 56 Thus God R220 repaid the wickedness of Abimelech, which he had done to his father in killing his seventy brothers. 57 Also God returned all the wickedness of the men of Shechem on their heads, and the curse of Jotham the son of Jerubbaal came upon F185 them.
