2Sa 14:15 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
"Now the reasonI have come to speak this word to my lord the king is that the people have made me afraid; so your maidservant said, 'Let me now speak to the king, perhaps the king will perform the request of his maidservant.

2Sa 14:17 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]

2Sa 18:12 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
The man said to Joab, "Even ifI should receive a thousand pieces of silver in my hand, I would not put out my hand against the king's son; for in our hearing the king charged you and Abishai and Ittai, saying, 'Protect for me the young man Absalom !'

2Sa 18:14 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
