New American Standard Bible

Chapter 14

29 Then Absalom sent for Joab, to send him to the king, but he would not come to him. So he sent word again a second time, but he would not come. 30 Therefore he said to his servants, 'See, Joab’s plot is next to mine, and he has barley there; go and set it on fire.' So Absalom’s servants set the plot on fire. 31 Then Joab got up, came to Absalom at his house, and said to him, 'Why have your servants set my plot on fire?' 32 Absalom answered Joab, 'Behold, I sent for you, saying, ‘Come here, so that I may send you to the king, to say, 'Why have I come from Geshur? It would be better for me still to be there.'?’ Now then, let me see the king’s face, and if there is guilt in me, he can have me executed.'
King James Version

Chapter 14

29 Therefore Absalom sent for Joab, to have sent him to the king; but he would not come to him: and when he sent again the second time, he would not come. 30 Therefore he said unto his servants, See, Joab's field is near mine, and he hath barley there; go and set it on fire. And Absalom's servants set the field on fire. 31 Then Joab arose, and came to Absalom unto his house, and said unto him, Wherefore have thy servants set my field on fire? 32 And Absalom answered Joab, Behold, I sent unto thee, saying, Come hither, that I may send thee to the king, to say, Wherefore am I come from Geshur? it had been good for me to have been there still: now therefore let me see the king's face; and if there be any iniquity in me, let him kill me.

Chapter 14

29 Then Absalom sent for Joab in order to send him to the king, but Joab was unwilling to come to him. So he sent again, a second time, but he still would not come. 30 Then Absalom said to his servants, "See, Joab has a field right next to mine, and he has barley there. Go and set fire to it! " So Absalom's servants set the field on fire.
31 Then Joab came to Absalom's house and demanded, "Why did your servants set my field on fire? "
32 "Look," Absalom explained to Joab, "I sent for you and said, 'Come here. I want to send you to the king to ask: Why have I come back from Geshur? I'd be better off if I were still there.' So now, let me see the king. If I am guilty, let him kill me."
New Living Translation

Chapter 14

29 Then Absalom sent for Joab to ask him to intercede for him, but Joab refused to come. Absalom sent for him a second time, but again Joab refused to come. 30 So Absalom said to his servants, 'Go and set fire to Joab's barley field, the field next to mine.' So they set his field on fire, as Absalom had commanded.
31 Then Joab came to Absalom at his house and demanded, 'Why did your servants set my field on fire?'
32 And Absalom replied, 'Because I wanted you to ask the king why he brought me back from Geshur if he didn't intend to see me. I might as well have stayed there. Let me see the king; if he finds me guilty of anything, then let him kill me.'

It would be better for me to be there still.” Now therefore let me go into the presence of the king, and if there is guilt in me, let him put me to death.’”

Chapter 14

29 Entonces Absalón mandó a buscar a Joab para enviarlo al rey, pero él no quiso venir. Y por segunda vez envió por él, pero no quiso venir. 30 Dijo, pues, a sus siervos: Mirad, el campo de Joab está junto al mío, y allí tiene cebada; id y prendedle fuego. Y los siervos de Absalón prendieron fuego al campo. 31 Entonces Joab se levantó, vino a la casa de Absalón y le dijo: ¿Por qué tus siervos han prendido fuego a mi campo ? 32 Y Absalón respondió a Joab: He aquí, envié por ti, diciendo: “Ven acá, para enviarte al rey a decirle: ‘¿Para qué vine de Gesur? Mejor me hubiera sido estar aún allá.’” Ahora pues, vea yo el rostro del rey; y si hay iniquidad en mí, que me dé muerte.

Chapter 14

29 Un día, le pidió a Joab que fuera a ver al rey, pero Joab no quiso ir. Se lo volvió a pedir, pero Joab se negó a hacerlo.
30 Así que Absalón dio esta orden a sus criados: «Miren, Joab ha sembrado cebada en el campo que tiene junto al mío. ¡Vayan y préndanle fuego!» Los criados fueron e incendiaron el campo de Joab.
31 Entonces este fue en seguida a casa de Absalón y le reclamó: ?¿Por qué tus criados le han prendido fuego a mi campo?
32 Y Absalón le respondió: ?Te pedí que fueras a ver al rey y le preguntaras para qué he vuelto de Guesur. ¡Más me habría valido quedarme allá! Voy a presentarme ante el rey y, si soy culpable de algo, ¡que me mate!

Y los siervos de Absalón prendieron fuego al campo. 31 Entonces se levantó Joab y vino a casa de Absalón, y le dijo: ¿Por qué han prendido fuego tus siervos a mi campo? 32 Y Absalón respondió a Joab: He aquí yo he enviado por ti, diciendo que vinieses acá, con el fin de enviarte al rey para decirle: ¿Para qué vine de Gesur? Mejor me fuera estar aún allá. Vea yo ahora el rostro del rey; y si hay en mí pecado, máteme.

Chapter 14

29 Y mandó Absalón por Joab, para enviarlo al rey; mas no quiso venir a él; ni aunque envió por segunda vez, quiso él venir. 30 Entonces dijo a sus siervos: Bien sabéis las tierras de Joab junto a mi lugar, donde tiene sus cebadas; id, y prenderles fuego; y los siervos de Absalón prendieron fuego a las tierras. 31 Se levantó por tanto Joab, y vino a Absalón a su casa, y le dijo: ¿Por qué han puesto fuego tus siervos a mis tierras? 32 Y Absalón respondió a Joab: He aquí, yo he enviado por ti, diciendo que vinieses acá, a fin de enviarte yo al rey a que le dijeses: ¿Para qué vine de Gesur? Mejor me fuera estar aún allá. Vea yo ahora la cara del rey; y si hay en mí pecado, máteme.
