2 Samuel 15:29-37

New American Standard Bible

Chapter 15

29 So Zadok and Abiathar returned the ark of God to Jerusalem and remained there.
30 And David was going up the ascent of the Mount of Olives, weeping as he went, and his head was covered, and he was walking barefoot. Then all the people who were with him each covered his own head, and they were going up, weeping as they went. 31 Now someone informed David, saying, 'Ahithophel is among the conspirators with Absalom.' And David said, 'LORD, please make the advice of Ahithophel foolish.'
32 It happened as David was coming to the summit, where God was worshiped, that behold, Hushai the Archite met him with his coat torn, and dust on his head. 33 And David said to him, 'If you go over with me, then you will become a burden to me. 34 But if you return to the city and say to Absalom, ‘I will be your servant, O king; even as I was your father’s servant in time past, so now I will also be your servant,’ then you can foil the advice of Ahithophel for me. 35 Are Zadok and Abiathar the priests not with you there? So it shall be that whatever you hear from the king’s house, you shall report to Zadok and Abiathar the priests. 36 Behold their two sons are there with them, Ahimaaz, Zadok’s son and Jonathan, Abiathar’s son; and by them you shall send me everything that you hear.' 37 So Hushai, David’s friend, came into the city, and Absalom came into Jerusalem.
King James Version

Chapter 15

29 Zadok therefore and Abiathar carried the ark of God again to Jerusalem: and they tarried there. 30 And David went up by the ascent of mount Olivet, and wept as he went up, and had his head covered, and he went barefoot: and all the people that was with him covered every man his head, and they went up, weeping as they went up.
31 And one told David, saying, Ahithophel is among the conspirators with Absalom. And David said, O LORD, I pray thee, turn the counsel of Ahithophel into foolishness. 32 And it came to pass, that when David was come to the top of the mount, where he worshipped God, behold, Hushai the Archite came to meet him with his coat rent, and earth upon his head: 33 Unto whom David said, If thou passest on with me, then thou shalt be a burden unto me: 34 But if thou return to the city, and say unto Absalom, I will be thy servant, O king; as I have been thy father's servant hitherto, so will I now also be thy servant: then mayest thou for me defeat the counsel of Ahithophel. 35 And hast thou not there with thee Zadok and Abiathar the priests? therefore it shall be, that what thing soever thou shalt hear out of the king's house, thou shalt tell it to Zadok and Abiathar the priests. 36 Behold, they have there with them their two sons, Ahimaaz Zadok's son, and Jonathan Abiathar's son; and by them ye shall send unto me every thing that ye can hear. 37 So Hushai David's friend came into the city, and Absalom came into Jerusalem.

Chapter 15

29 So Zadok and Abiathar returned the ark of God to Jerusalem and stayed there.
30 David was climbing the slope of the Mount of Olives, weeping as he ascended. His head was covered, and he was walking barefoot. All of the people with him covered their heads and went up, weeping as they ascended.
31 Then someone reported to David, "Ahithophel is among the conspirators with Absalom.""Lord," David pleaded, "please turn the counsel of Ahithophel into foolishness! "
32 When David came to the summit where he used to worship God, Hushai the Archite was there to meet him with his robe torn and dust on his head. 33 David said to him, "If you go away with me, you'll be a burden to me, 34 but if you return to the city and tell Absalom, 'I will be your servant, Your Majesty! Previously, I was your father's servant, but now I will be your servant,' then you can counteract Ahithophel's counsel for me. 35 Won't the priests Zadok and Abiathar be there with you? Report everything you hear from the palace to the priests Zadok and Abiathar. 36 Take note: their two sons are there with them--Zadok's son Ahimaaz and Abiathar's son Jonathan. Send them to tell me everything you hear." 37 So Hushai, David's personal adviser, entered Jerusalem just as Absalom was entering the city.
New Living Translation

Chapter 15

29 So Zadok and Abiathar took the Ark of God back to the city and stayed there.
30 David walked up the road to the Mount of Olives, weeping as he went. His head was covered and his feet were bare as a sign of mourning. And the people who were with him covered their heads and wept as they climbed the hill. 31 When someone told David that his adviser Ahithophel was now backing Absalom, David prayed, 'O LORD, let Ahithophel give Absalom foolish advice!'
32 When David reached the summit of the Mount of Olives where people worshiped God, Hushai the Arkite was waiting there for him. Hushai had torn his clothing and put dirt on his head as a sign of mourning. 33 But David told him, 'If you go with me, you will only be a burden. 34 Return to Jerusalem and tell Absalom, 'I will now be your adviser, O king, just as I was your father's adviser in the past.' Then you can frustrate and counter Ahithophel's advice. 35 Zadok and Abiathar, the priests, will be there. Tell them about the plans being made in the king's palace, 36 and they will send their sons Ahimaaz and Jonathan to tell me what is going on.'
37 So David's friend Hushai returned to Jerusalem, getting there just as Absalom arrived.

30 But David went up the ascent of the Mount of Olives, weeping as he went, barefoot and with his head covered. And all the people who were with him covered their heads, and they went up, weeping as they went. 31 And it was told David, “Ahithophel is among the conspirators with Absalom.” And David said, “O LORD, please turn the counsel of Ahithophel into foolishness.”
32 While David was coming to the summit, where God was worshiped, behold, Hushai the Archite came to meet him with his coat torn and dirt on his head. 33 David said to him, “If you go on with me, you will be a burden to me. 34 But if you return to the city and say to Absalom, ‘I will be your servant, O king; as I have been your father’s servant in time past, so now I will be your servant,’ then you will defeat for me the counsel of Ahithophel. 35 Are not Zadok and Abiathar the priests with you there? So whatever you hear from the king’s house, tell it to Zadok and Abiathar the priests. 36 Behold, their two sons are with them there, Ahimaaz, Zadok’s son, and Jonathan, Abiathar’s son, and by them you shall send to me everything you hear.” 37 So Hushai, David’s friend, came into the city, just as Absalom was entering Jerusalem.
New International Version

Chapter 15

29 So Zadok and Abiathar took the ark of God back to Jerusalem and stayed there.
30 But David continued up the Mount of Olives, weeping as he went; his head was covered and he was barefoot. All the people with him covered their heads too and were weeping as they went up. 31 Now David had been told, 'Ahithophel is among the conspirators with Absalom.' So David prayed, 'LORD, turn Ahithophel's counsel into foolishness.'
32 When David arrived at the summit, where people used to worship God, Hushai the Arkite was there to meet him, his robe torn and dust on his head. 33 David said to him, 'If you go with me, you will be a burden to me. 34 But if you return to the city and say to Absalom, 'Your Majesty, I will be your servant; I was your father's servant in the past, but now I will be your servant,' then you can help me by frustrating Ahithophel's advice. 35 Won't the priests Zadok and Abiathar be there with you? Tell them anything you hear in the king's palace. 36 Their two sons, Ahimaaz son of Zadok and Jonathan son of Abiathar, are there with them. Send them to me with anything you hear.'
37 So Hushai, David's confidant, arrived at Jerusalem as Absalom was entering the city.

Chapter 15

29 Sadoc y Abiatar hicieron volver el arca de Dios a Jerusalén, y se quedaron allí.
30 Subía David la cuesta del monte de los Olivos, y mientras iba, lloraba con la cabeza cubierta y los pies descalzos. Y todo el pueblo que iba con él cubrió cada uno su cabeza, e iban llorando mientras subían. 31 Alguien dio aviso a David, diciendo: Ahitofel está entre los conspiradores con Absalón. Y David dijo: Oh SEÑOR, te ruego, haz necio el consejo de Ahitofel. 32 Sucedió que mientras David se acercaba a la cumbre donde se adoraba a Dios, he aquí, Husai arquita salió a su encuentro con su manto desgarrado y polvo sobre la cabeza. 33 Y David le dijo: Si pasas conmigo, entonces me serás una carga. 34 Pero si regresas a la ciudad, y dices a Absalón: “Seré tu siervo, oh rey; como en el pasado he sido siervo de tu padre, así ahora seré tu siervo”, entonces harás nulo el consejo de Ahitofel en favor mío. 35 ¿Y no están allí contigo Sadoc y Abiatar los sacerdotes? Por tanto, todo lo que oigas de la casa del rey lo comunicarás a los sacerdotes Sadoc y Abiatar. 36 He aquí, sus dos hijos están allí con ellos, Ahimaas, hijo de Sadoc, y Jonatán, hijo de Abiatar, y por medio de ellos me comunicarás todo lo que oigas. 37 Husai, amigo de David, entró en la ciudad cuando Absalón entraba en Jerusalén.

Chapter 15

29 Entonces Sadoc y Abiatar volvieron a Jerusalén con el arca de Dios, y allí se quedaron. 30 David, por su parte, subió al monte de los Olivos llorando, con la cabeza cubierta y los pies descalzos. También todos los que lo acompañaban se cubrieron la cabeza y subieron llorando. 31 En eso le informaron a David que Ajitofel se había unido a la conspiración de Absalón. Entonces David oró: «SEÑOR, haz que fracasen los planes de Ajitofel».
32 Cuando David llegó a la cumbre del monte, donde se rendía culto a Dios, se encontró con Husay el arquita, que en señal de duelo llevaba las vestiduras rasgadas y la cabeza cubierta de ceniza.
33 David le dijo: ?Si vienes conmigo, vas a serme una carga. 34 Es mejor que regreses a la ciudad y le digas a Absalón: “Majestad, estoy a su servicio. Antes fui siervo de su padre, pero ahora lo soy de usted”. De ese modo podrás ayudarme a desbaratar los planes de Ajitofel. 35 Allí contarás con los sacerdotes Sadoc y Abiatar, así que manténlos informados de todo lo que escuches en el palacio real. 36 También contarás con Ajimaz hijo de Sadoc y con Jonatán hijo de Abiatar; comuníquenme ustedes por medio de ellos cualquier cosa que averigüen.
37 Husay, que era amigo de David, llegó a Jerusalén en el momento en que Absalón entraba en la ciudad.

Chapter 15

29 Entonces Sadoc y Abiatar volvieron el arca de Dios a Jerusalén, y se quedaron allá.
30 Y David subió la cuesta de los Olivos; y la subió llorando, llevando la cabeza cubierta y los pies descalzos. También todo el pueblo que tenía consigo cubrió cada uno su cabeza, e iban llorando mientras subían. 31 Y dieron aviso a David, diciendo: Ahitofel está entre los que conspiraron con Absalón. Entonces dijo David: Entorpece ahora, oh Jehová, el consejo de Ahitofel.
32 Cuando David llegó a la cumbre del monte para adorar allí a Dios, he aquí Husai arquita que le salió al encuentro, rasgados sus vestidos, y tierra sobre su cabeza. 33 Y le dijo David: Si pasares conmigo, me serás carga. 34 Mas si volvieres a la ciudad, y dijeres a Absalón: Rey, yo seré tu siervo; como hasta aquí he sido siervo de tu padre, así seré ahora siervo tuyo; entonces tú harás nulo el consejo de Ahitofel. 35 ¿No estarán allí contigo los sacerdotes Sadoc y Abiatar? Por tanto, todo lo que oyeres en la casa del rey, se lo comunicarás a los sacerdotes Sadoc y Abiatar. 36 Y he aquí que están con ellos sus dos hijos, Ahimaas el de Sadoc, y Jonatán el de Abiatar; por medio de ellos me enviaréis aviso de todo lo que oyereis. 37 Así vino Husai amigo de David a la ciudad; y Absalón entró en Jerusalén.

Chapter 15

29 Entonces Sadoc y Abiatar volvieron el arca de Dios a Jerusalén; y se estuvieron allá. 30 Y David subió la cuesta de las olivas; y la subió llorando, llevando la cabeza cubierta, y los pies descalzos. También todo el pueblo que tenía consigo cubrió cada uno su cabeza, y subieron llorando así como subían. 31 Y dieron aviso a David, diciendo: Ahitofel también está con los que conspiraron con Absalón. Entonces dijo David: Enloquece ahora, oh SEÑOR, el consejo de Ahitofel. 32 Y cuando David llegó a la cumbre del monte para adorar allí a Dios, he aquí Husai araquita que le salió al encuentro, trayendo rota su ropa, y tierra sobre su cabeza. 33 Y le dijo David: Si pasares conmigo, me serás de carga; 34 mas si volvieres a la ciudad, y dijeres a Absalón: Rey, yo seré tu siervo; como hasta aquí he sido siervo de tu padre, así seré ahora siervo tuyo, entonces tú me disiparás el consejo de Ahitofel. 35 ¿No estarán allí contigo Sadoc y Abiatar sacerdotes? Por tanto, todo lo que oyeres en la casa del rey, darás aviso de ello a Sadoc y a Abiatar sacerdotes. 36 Y he aquí que están con ellos sus dos hijos, Ahimaas el de Sadoc, y Jonatán el de Abiatar; por mano de ellos me enviaréis aviso de todo lo que oyereis. 37 Así se vino Husai amigo de David a la ciudad; y Absalón entró en Jerusalén.
